Darkside is the BEST JKII NF server on the net without a doubt. I've been to Red Hand and while their servers are very well run, I personally feel that Darkside has the best dueling competition on the net. Even if JKII.net never recognizes Darkside for the elite server that it is, everyone should know that if you want to truly test yourself, go to the Darkside servers. I guarantee you that someone on darkside can OWN YOU.
ps- to everyone in the darkside community, thank you for creating such a wonderful environment to play in. Without you, I would have moved on from this game many months ago. But at Darkside, the challenge is still their whenever I enter the servers.
