I think many players noticed that USA players are in better conditions than european or asian. Here is one example:

The USA player made 8 moves in second ! And I have never seen any european or asian player making more than 5 moves in second. These are not fully equal conditions.

I suggest to correct this, either by enabling europeans and asians to make 8 moves in second too, either by disabling americans to make more than 5 moves in second.

I assume the premove function was enabled. I have that enabled and I just played 10 moves within 1 second and I’m in Europe. ICC always charges a minimum of 0.1 seconds for any move you make, including premoves. I appreciate you may be referring to lag here, but I thought I would just add this in for you in case you were not aware of it. A lot of people use premove, especially in short games, like 1-minute.

As Asian player, I Agree with Opinion that Europan & Asian players has more lag than USA players.
But I think that’s normal & natural.
That’s just the way it is. We are far from server so its natural if we have more lag than people in US.
