Being put in the wrong servers - lots of lag

I played quite a few games yesterday where I seemed to be put in a server on the other side of the planet - sometimes it was just the hunters (2, 3 or 4) but a lot of the time all 5 players had 200-400 ping. It was never just me with a bad ping, I normally have something like a 40-50 ping.

It was as if there were no European servers available (PC) and we all got put on an Asian or North American server.

Not much fun missing blatant domes and being unable to dodge attacks, whether I won or lost. It happened in skirmish as well as hunt.

I don’t remember experiencing this problem before on public servers, is it temporary? Did many other people experience it?
