Checked the resource monitor, 188.8.131.52 is the IP address I get when logged into Besaid. Try pinging that, I don't think the differences in servers will make any noticeable difference in latency, since they're probably all physically adjacent to each other.
EDIT: I ran the ping myself and averaged 215 ms, going from Wisconsin to Tokyo, Japan. Whatever lag is in the game seems to be software related latency, because I would not expect to call the latency in-game 1/5th of a second. That's just a tad over the high end of acceptable latency for a first person shooter.
