EU is the same on PS4 as well... I just kinda say **** it and continue to play, If I crash I just log off there is no point logging back in to get in the que again to play haha.
Depends how close to the server you are and how your country deals with/sends data.
In the US, theres not many issues. South east asia and the greater oceanic regions cop it very bad.
Just sucks theres no competition on console
