What is the difference someone asked me. The numbers are always nice and high for players. Ironically there USED to be 2 servers in NA but now they made 1 server. and still the most I have ever seen on a busy day is 20k maybe a few k more. But an average of 14k to 18k  and that makes for really bad MM. But of course MM has never been correct to begin with.

one server is in Bavaria, Germany. The other in the Netherlands. Some events are restricted to one or the other server. Those are the main differences I can think of.

WOT was never that popular in the NA-region...

Team battles mainly happen on EU1 (located in Germany), I play in the UK so more often than not the auto system puts me on EU2 where the ping is slightly better, later at night i switch to EU1 using the theory of more people online ewuals more chance to be equal or top tier rather than bottom.

Due to their locations there is also a noticeable difference between them in terms of performance depending one which on you use for some people. I for example have a lot better experience on EU2 than on EU1 during peak hours, since the path my data travel across Europe and back again to EU1 tend to involve packet-loss during peak hours, something which isn't the case with EU2, all other time it don't matter much which server I play on since the performance is about the same.

Yup, one server is located in the Netherlands but Dutch has never been a official forum language.

It is however a official game language.

I think that is weird to say the least.

Playing late evening, EU night time, i observed EU2 has always double population in relation to EU1, but probly due to clan activity ~ CW, SH etc..  You will mostly find clanless players and clan toons on EU1 while EU2 has many clan players playing mostly standard. Assault and encounter is more frustrating on EU1. 

Players also tend to gravitate to better ping servers even tho, if not really laggin or acceptable high ping 120+, it doesnt make for noticable difference unless its 250+ then its better to just drive around and not aim at all.

Overall i like to play all modes and on EU1 as ping is better for Balkans.

In FL week its hard to tell ..

That's bascially my face when I make when the launcher set me on EU1. Nothing good ever comes from playing there unless it's after 1AM. Then that's the face I make when I get auto logged to EU2.
