NA server to EU server  
Has anyone made the transition? Is it worth it? What's your experience?

I'm an American stationed overseas. In the past, my hubs and I have tried playing our NA server Aion accounts but had many problems. Mainly the lag and rubber banding. Would this be a problem if we switched to an EU server?

I can't find on the NCSoft account page on how to make an EU account. The last time I downloaded the EU version of the game, it wouldn't let me use my NA log in. Websites say you need some kind of time code for the EU Aion.

Is anyone willing to give me one please? Thank You

Ugh, I posted a comment but since I included a link it got screened. ._.

The closest thing to a account creation thing on the EU site was going to the login area, and then there was a create account link underneath the boxes.

If switching regions for Aion is anything like it is for WoW, you're going to need an EU account, you're going to need EU CD Keys to use on the account, and then you're going to need a separate subscription for the account (that's what the timecode is, just a pre-paid game time card) You won't be able to play your current characters, you'll have to start over. Both of you would need to get EU accounts.

In this case switching to EU servers probably won't fix the lag issues. Instead of the person overseas lagging, the person in the US will get hit with the lag instead.
