Dear Players.

 

Our region is primarily connected by a web of undersea cables, which are prone to environmental factors out of our control such as Tropical Hurricanes.

Currently there are several regional cable failures which are causing connectivity issues to our servers for some affected players, with ANZ being the worst affected region due to the SEA ME WE 3 cable outage.


For reference, please refer to...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SEA-ME-WE_3

http://status.vocus.com.au/view-incident.aspx?IncidentID=349

 

Usually cable outages can temporarily be fixed in a short period of time, by rerouting load via other cable options.
However for ANZ the issue is worsened due to the lack of other cable options out of the remote island, and distances being further.

 

The issue is out of our control, but we would still like to shower you with gifts, to compensate you for this inconvenience. But doing this now, when the cable is still in need of repair, is not the best time.
So we will work on doing this as a celebration for when the cable is repaired.

 

In the meantime, to keep you going until the cable is repaired.. we would like to offer the following.

 

For all WOT PC Asia players

Premium

  • 3 days premium

Booster Consumables

In addition to the premium, some booster consumables for you to activate when you wish.

  • 5x +50% EXP boosters valid for 1 hour
  • 5x +200% Crew EXP boosters valid for 1 hour
  • 5x +200% Free EXP boosters valid for 1 hour

 

These are available anytime (Once) throughout September (Sept 1st 6pm SGT to  Sept 30th 6pm SGT)

And awarded when you obtain a victory while finishing in the top 10 by exp of your team

 

For all WOT PC ANZ players

Additionally, for the country’s worst affected by current outages (Australia and New Zealand) Please refer to the ANZ forum announcement located here
 

Please note:

Clanwars will remain operational as normal throughout this period, while Esports activities will be discussed separately, in a separate thread.

 

Regards / On behalf of all of WG Asia..
Tan

Thanks for the gesture tan. Should soften the impact for those still trying to brave the ping.

Hello.

 

3 days premium + boosters , should have been credited by the mission to all.

And the mission went online about 30 mins ago.
 

The mission is activated by basic requirements.

 

Conditions:

  • Win 1 battles
  • Top 10 in Experience in your team

 

So unless something broke,, you should have the premium when you got the boosters.

 

Regards
Tan

OK i think i get it..

You are asking about the mission that awards premium and boosters, to all due to cable down........

Tanitha any chance having a freeze on Clan Wars till this regional cable failures are fixed because some clans will take advantage of this problem and start chipping clans in Aust and NZ areas.

Like if a clan can see a easy win they win do it.

Lucky there is no Campaign at the moment

sadly its been decided to not freeze the map. (something alot of the AUS/NZ clans arent impressed about. but hey. minorities as usual.)

 

a minimum of 6 weeks of not being able to be competitive at CWs TAN. look at the standings as it is, you tell me how exactly in 6 weeks, (if its actually fixed in 6 weeks) 

 

any strong clan will make up in any standings. huh. good logic man. i hope WG Minsk is impressed there;\

just when this GM season was actually improving on the last.... then this shit happens and WG decides to "na, [edited] them, leave it unfrozen, its not like they have any chances.. or its not like there is over 80k gold on offer in weekly rankings over that period, not including any gold you could have gotten from land on the map.. or the chance to get 3 seperate unique cammo's no no no"

Ping on the launcher isn't a good indicator.  I often get a ping well over 400 on the launcher yet it drops to around 250 in game.
