Easiest Region to get Masters in?

General Discussion
What in your opinion is the easiest region to get masters in?
Well if WCS is any indication, The Americas is the easiest server...
I've had the easiest time getting higher in SEA region. Their plat league is a joke.
they are all the same until you hit high masters

This.

Whoever says Masters Kr > Masters Eu > Masters Na ... is a big idiot and doesn't know what he is talking about.

I am masters in all 3 servers I can assure you that skill level is same till mid masters.

The skill difference only comes into picture from top masters and above.
SEA
I'm pretty sure its SEA given the amount of players in it.

Hey! Its a small community but a very nice one. If I want custom games that is where I go (only in peak hours though).
SEA

This.
So is NA the hardest cause of the amount of players?
KR>EU>NA>SEA (in terms of skill)
KR>EU>NA<SEA (in terms d1ck size )

Corrected :D
I've heard SEA has the lowest skill ceiling.
SEA. KR is hardest, NA/EU is about the same.
SEA. KR is hardest, NA/EU is about the same.

That's why I always hear as well.

Indeed. Everyone has had their own different experiences (especially comparing NA & EU), but that was the difficulty level for me personally.

You should definitely give region switching a try if you haven't yet. :) It's a lot of fun playing against other meta-games, and the creativity put into some of the other custom Arcade maps is incredible.

Part of KR's difficulty compared to other servers is the latency, and the other part of it is their general playstyle. On NA and EU you will encounter plenty of standard macro play, and on KR you will get 1-based or cheesed almost every time. It's brutal, man.

What makes you say that?

I'm platinum on SEA, but I can compete with NA diamonds pretty well whenever I hop into customs on NA. While I don't disagree that there's a skill difference there, I don't think it's as big as you're making it out to be.

I'm pretty sure its SEA given the amount of players in it.


The amount of players actually makes it harder, not easier. Less overall players means there are less players in each league, so the top 2% is a smaller group. Say, for example, SEA had 100 players and NA had 200 players. 2% of 100 is 2, but 2% of 200 is 4, so that means twice as many people can achieve masters on NA compared to SEA due to the higher player population.

Also, a lot of the higher level players on SEA regularly play on the Korean server (our geographical location means the lag isn't a huge issue), and many Koreans also regularly play on the SEA server. SEA also includes hardcore players in several Asian countries including Taiwan (where Sen is from) and China (Sky (Legendary WC3 pro), MacSed, DreAm).

Overall though, I think this is pretty true:

they are all the same until you hit high masters
