By not have a single server in North America to host for the Xbox 360 community is the worst plan Ubisoft could make when dabbling in the Free2Play market. Even the Argentina teams have to suffer without a South American server.

What really bites, is that the round trip ping hosting a match between someone in California to another in Argentina when the server is on the other side of the world (Spain and France). Even with the best Internet Service Providers can not compensate for the latency you accumulate for that signal to travel. I could go in much further detail, but long posts tend to turn off most readers...
(imagine long rant here)...
...and this is why Ubisoft should surpass EA someday in shady business and horrible marketing strategies.While in turn blame it on the developers and programers for a bad launch, poor public reviews or poor sales. ie: Battlefield 4 title launch, bug riddled and calling it a product when in fact it's still in beta, even to this day almost a year after "product" launch.

Oh so there is a North American server. Still doesn't fix the issue with the latency issue, especially being paired with South America.
