Since today we have more then 100 Official public Honor-Servers hosted in Europe (Great Britain).
The IP Range is: 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52 (or check out our Serverlist)
Those official servers running on hardware that is specially designed for America's Army SF and they have a great connection to it's european neighbors (germany, france, italy [...]). Great Pings for all european players!
GoAmericasArmy.com (where you can lease your own HonorServer) will also give you the option to host your HonorServer in GreatBritain very soon !
A big "Thank You" to the Team of SCI for this great Servers and this great service for the european players!

Hip hip hurray! Hip hip hurray! Hip hip hurray!
Ok... I dont know if I am just being a jerk about this but.... I hope the US is not paying for those servers over in Europe.... That would really piss me off... America's Army was supposed to be a recruitment tool for people to join the military and help our county... Now how the hell is putting servers over in Europe going to help recruit US citizens to join the military?? Personally I dont think people are going to run over to the US and try and apply for citizenship just to join the military... If the Army is using our tax dollors for it I think that I am going to call and complain about it. Or at least ask that the people playing over their... Other than US military personel be charged(at least for the server access)... Because we had to pay taxes for the funding for the game... What did other nationalities pay?? NOTHING!!
I just love my ping when playing hospital !!!
US ARMY have bases in Europe so :)
SF Hospital ping average below 100, pukka
I know the US Army has bases over there... if you had read my post you would have seen that I put everyone EXCEPT US military personel... Now quit freeloading off of the U.S.... lol...
In Europe they can join American Forces witought leaving there country at all. Also its not like your spending any extra taxes just because this game came out and that they now have European servers.
Every year the goverment decides to spend a certain amount (forgot the usual ammmount at the momment) on recruting for the Army. Instead of investing as much money into Radio ads, TV ads and free Video give outs, there taking some of that and putting it twoards the game.
Europeans also support the US in many ways. So just back off, its not costing you anything extra and it dosn't really matter if they have a few servers over there.
Edit: I also just want to point out that I am not European and I don't have family or anything over there either. Just thought s2 was being unfair in his comments.
