Which is the most popular and active (english speaking) version?
And since I'm from the EU, I guess ping would matter as well...
Sea or Eu version I guess? Sea has been always been pretty upto date and fast with content, not sure about Eu server.
Wouldn't bother with NA.
Isn't Dragon Nest fully IP enforced in all versions? Meaning you can only play on the server where the publisher has publishing rights for your country. Unless you are from a country that has no publisher at all.
Just play SEA version. It's heavily populated and has the quickest updates in English. Their voice acting sucks and translations suck, but its still the best English version.
EU version is good too, but its pretty far behind SEA and EU people can play the SEA version without IP block.
NA version is IP blocked to USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. It's slower to update but has decent translations/voice overs. It's hosted by Nexon NA which is a horrid company, so.. don't bother even if you could.
SEA version is available to all countries except USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (all the NA players..). I think they also IP block Chinese, Japanese and Korean IPs. Everyone else can play there.
FFXIV - Gilgamesh - Keoru Nozaka
Blade and Soul NA
SEA Dragon Nest. They are updated and there are a lot of players in-game which make it more fun.
