We're a well-established team of players who have played together for some time now.
We've just finished our first round on one of the EU servers and one of our core associations has been unable to pre-register in the same region as the rest of the team. We played in the same region last round, so why can't they pre-register for one of the cities they were in then? Or even any city in the region?
We've four associations in our team, why isn't there room for them in a 5 city region?
Support just say this is pre-registration balancing and there's nothing they can do to help. For a team of players who like to play together and have done so for some time now, this isn't a solution.
This is not a good time of year to say "there's no room at the inn"...
