can anyone tell me what would be involved in making an account on a US server from the UK? I can never be online at European peak time, so I need a US account if I want to get involved in any kind of raiding, but it seems to be inordinately difficult to set up an account from here. From what I can tell having just researched a little bit, literally the only way is to buy the physical boxes of the US release of the game and all the expansion packs from the US and by some arcane and undisclosed process get them shipped here, because God knows Amazon.com won't ship to a third world backwater like the United Kingdom (it's not like I live 50 miles away from the third busiest airport on the planet or anything, Amazon...)
Is it really that difficult? I mean if I somehow got a US proxy shipping company to send me the amazon delivery it will end up taking about a month and costing £100+, versus £35 to buy the EU releases and get them the next day.
Is there no way to just pay to set up a new account online and digitally download the client? It seems ridiculous that it should be this convoluted, I've been playing SW:TOR the past few months and with that game it's a matter of one extra mouse click when you're picking a server...
I'd love to start playing WoW again, I haven't for years and I still consider it the best game I've ever played, but the main reason I stopped is that three quarters of Europe have gone to sleep by the time I can get online, if I can't get a US account there just isn't a lot of point. Please help :(
