Hey, I call for a nationally televised apology by WG staff who have INSULTED all non-asian countries players within this server's area.

I suppose it would be easier to name servers per continent, as in NA [North America, even though it covers South America and Asia for a while] and EU [Europe], than to use the newer designation APAC. You didn't complain back in NA right?

After all, the name change is I think merely to ensure a deeper penetration into the virgin markets of Asia.

Actually we did - as the web sites would tell us we were optimised for the NA server, we would raise our voices about issues that affected the PAC region countries.
We were told come to the server formally known as SEA to get support as support on the NA server for the PAC countries was ending.

When the name change was first announced to APAC it made sense, it suited ALL the regions that the server supports.
The backflip to being ASIA only does not suit all the regions that the server group states that it supports.

Even support seems confused if the replies in http://forum.worldof...-other-regions/ are accurate.

I've PM'd Tan about it but he hasn't been online in over a week. Are there any actual WG staff around who can explain what's going on?

Anyone else notice that the announcement on the portal is now about the server being renamed to ASIA, not APAC?

Last I heard (last week) it came from the top down, I think the local WG guys were seeking clarification etc... so watch this space I guess.

So wtf are we called now? WoT - APAC or WoT - Asia? The latter is generally a kick in the face to Aussies and NZ + India etc. why not just say Aus/NZ are really not that important (re gold distribution on CW map) yes I get that Asia is the bigger/better market, but we are not formally part of Asia are we?

Cannot it not just be called WoT - Southern hemisphere or WoT - Asia and others.

Cheers for the slap fellas.

WG: Changes name to incorporate all regions, then decides.. wait! No! Let's just exclude these regions, they don't matter!

For what it is worth, APAC or variant thereof (eg ASIAPAC) would be appreciated.  Good luck.

Please make server transfers possible!

No excuses here, technical or whatsoever. It is about time. Other MMOs can do as well. Budget must be there as well.

Hello Otto, I was around, but when on the road (usually in meetings) I don't get the opportunity to reply to the forums and stick to more mobile communication platforms.

Yes there was a short period of time where WG were preparing to rename this server from SEA to APAC, so now for a little while you will find all three SEA/APAC/ASIA in use as we continue to officially swap to ASIA. Renaming takes a lot of preparation in the way of artwork, URLs, partnerships, etc etc so its not something that is done instantly.

As the announcement reads now, this server will be renaming from SEA (South East Asia) to Asia, which is the geographic location of the server.
Also as per the announcement the server services Australia and New Zealand commonly referred to as the Oceania Region

The fact that Pacific will not be included in the naming of the server, does not alter our continued support for Australia and New Zealand.
Please note, that Pacific isn't an ideal word to describe Australia and NewZealand anyway, as the term often also covers USA, Russia, Canada, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Etc, which are also located in the Pacific.

The Asian server will continue to be the best WG server for the AUS/NZ population as well as the Asian population, as the server provides a closer server (Singapore / better pings / especially now that the AUS->SING cable is finally fixed), Timezone support (Activities at an accessible timezone, Clanwars, Clanwars Campaigns, Hunt us Down, Tank Company Frenzy, Last Tank Standing, a flurry of competitions, Huge Esports Leagues, customer support,etc) and local staff for on the ground penetration, as well as local language and culture support.

We hope to continue to look after the entertainment aspect of your lives, for Aus and NZ and the Asia region, even though AUS and NZ are not in the server name.

Best Regards
Tan.

Thanks for the update Tan.  Whilst we are passionate about having NZ/Oz represented in the name, sometimes convenience/practicability wins the day.

We will expect a big reward on June 1 to NZ/Oz players to represent the sacrifice that we are making. :teethhappy:
