No, the server is still located in the US and your computer is still in europe. Proxy is just hiding your IP

Your ping will show up lower and depending on your connection to the proxy server you might end up with a better overall connection. The best I've been able to pull of using this method has been 20 ms off my ping, but that's US to US.

Make sure you're using something optimized for gaming, a normal proxy server will slow you down.
