I have to say, this annoyed me:

Q: How do you plan to address network lag in Europe
A: We've been receiving a lot of feedback on the EU forums about trouble with ISPs and network setups using WiFi. I believe information has already been shared by the European Community Team, but we would like players experiencing these issues to post further details that indicate the network card they are using, their provider, and any other pertinent information regarding their connections. Once we can define the issue, we would like to contact European providers to address connectivity problems, and we appreciate your cooperation in helping us.
That first sentence is utter tosh. Most of the complaints have been centered around the fact that SE has EU players use a Data Centre in Canada to play a very network timing sensitive game, nothing to do with our own ISPs or internet networks. The latency induced by the hops out of EU to US and then into Canada just put too much of a delay to reliably dodge AOEs.
