Hello Aussie and New Zealand Tankers

We’re very pleased to announce that as of November 1, 2017, we’ll be launching a dedicated server for Australia and New Zealand, now operating from 5pm-2am during weeknights and all weekend from 5pm Friday to 2am Monday (times in AEDT). We understand there may be some questions you have, so we’ve created this helpful FAQ to assist you with preparation for the migration.

 

Roll Out!

Wargaming ANZ

 

What type of server is Wargaming hosting?

The ANZ server isn’t a standalone server, it’s a ‘periphery’ meaning your account remains tied to Asia, but allows you to play on the ANZ periphery. 

 

An Asia account is required to play on the ANZ periphery. If you have an account on the US server and would like to migrate it across, please follow the instructions below.

 

When does the server go live?

The ANZ server for World of Tanks on PC will go live at 6pm AEDT on November 1st. After a couple of adjustments, the servers are now online from 5pm-2am during the week and all weekend from 5pm Fridays to 2am Mondays.

 

If you’re unsure about how the time zones relate to your own, you can easily check it here.

 

How do I log into the ANZ server?

If you already have an account on the Asia server then it’s easy! When you’re in the World of Tanks login screen, all you need to do is click the server drop down menu and select the ANZ server and log in as normal.

 

Please note that if you attempt to log in outside of prime time, you will not be able to connect to the server. During non-prime time periods you should log into the Asia server to ensure you get the best experience.

 

Is this server available to New Zealand players as well?

Yes, it most definitely is. If you live in New Zealand and have an account on the Asia server, then follow the instructions above to log in.

 

If you have an account on another server, please follow the instructions further down on how to migrate over to the ASIA server.

 

What does ‘prime time’ server mean?

‘Prime time’ means that the server will only be active during our most trafficked times 5pm-2am. Running the servers daily between 5pm-2am ensures that we’re benefiting the most Australian and New Zealand players as possible.

 

Why are the servers prime time?

The servers are prime time because we want to carefully manage how we deploy them to ensure matchmaking runs smoothly and that players of all levels aren’t left waiting in long server queues.

 

The prime time hours are calculated currently on our busiest hours to ensure it benefits the most players possible.

 

What happens if I want to play outside of prime time hours?

If you want to play World of Tanks outside of prime time hours you simply select the Asia server, instead of the ANZ server, when you log in.

 

If you are playing on the ANZ server during prime time and continue to play until prime time hours are inactive (e.g. battle starts at 1:59am AEDT), the game will run until it’s finished (regardless of whether or not it goes past 2am) and then log you out once it has saved your stats from the battle.

 

Will the servers eventually go 24/7?

That’s the goal! However before that happens we need to increase the player base to ensure the matchmaker works to a standard we’re happy with, as we don’t want long game queues. The key to the ANZ server working is providing a fast matchmaking experience. 

 

Where are the servers located?

The servers will be located in Sydney, Australia. We are confident that they will sufficiently service the entire continent as well as New Zealand players.

 

I'm from ANZ but my account is based on another server, am I able to transfer?

In the lead up and shortly following the launch of the ANZ server we facilitated 3 rounds of transfers for players from the NA server, where the majority of international ANZ players were based. At this time we're not able to transfer any more players from external servers, however we are actively working towards making this a more accessible service over the course of the year.

 

I’m a member of a clan on the Asia server, what will this mean for me?

As a clan member, player may need to decide whether to stay in a mixed-nationality clan or region-focused clan.

 

A mixed-nationality clan will have members active in different time zones throughout the day but could be scattered on different periphery.

 

On the other hand, a region-focused clan will have more members online on the same periphery but only within a few hours period of time.

 

What does this mean for Clan Wars?

Clan Wars, including Stronghold and the Global Map, will have its own designated prime time hours for the ANZ and Asia servers, based on the time zone UTC +8.

 

Stronghold will be available on the ANZ periphery during early primetime – 15:00 UTC+8 to 18:00 UTC+8 daily until daylight savings finishes. It will then switch to 16:00 UTC+8 to 18:00 UTC+8, and ASIA for later primetime – from 18:00 UTC+8 to 24:00 UTC+8.

 

Global Map will also have similar settings, available on the ANZ periphery during 16:00 UTC+8 to 19:00 UTC+8, and 20:00 UTC+8 to 24:00 UTC+8 on ASIA periphery.

 

When will World of Tanks console and World of Warships get local servers?

We would love to launch local servers for all of our titles and it’s something that the ANZ Wargaming team are always investigating. At this stage we have nothing to announce.

How does the transfer process work?

Transferring accounts is based on the account information you provide us in this form (INSERT LINK). Once we reach the cut-off date we have an automated tool that recreates accounts on the Asia server based off of the US account, then perma-bans the old account from the server, effectively wiping it.

 

 

Wheres the link..its not in the Text...lol

WG will just do whatever is needed to keep us on the gerbil wheel. Logic is just the beef they put on the pill to make the dog swallow it.

I guess my one question would be;

 

If enough players come across to ANZ or if a number of new players signup to play will the times for the ANZ cluster be extended to accommodate?

 

Not saying that the time its up for is insufficiant, just curious what plans are for the future.

 

If WoWs comes to ANZ I'll be happy as well.

Now just need an Asia/ANZ server for WoWp

ASIA accounts don't need to be migrated - they will be able to access the ANZ periphery.

Maybe the oz koz might amend the FAQ into sections based on the intended audience. As is some questions are applicable for those on other servers, some are general, and some are for those already on SEA.

So clans based in WA get a small window to be able to use this server. 3pm till 9pm :( why not extend till 2am so at least we get a decent usage from it.

Your ping will probably be better to Singapore based on how shit it is on Telstra across Australia.

I feel like a TLDR is needed:

 

There's going to be 2 clusters on the ASIA server: SG (Singapore: active 24/7) and ANZ (active 6pm to 12am AEDT)

 

ASIA players wanting to play on ANZ just need to select it during active hours and then login as normal, no need to download a new client or transfer accounts.

 

If you have a NA, EU or RU account and want to play on the ANZ cluster you need to apply to transfer to ASIA server and download the appropriate client.

 

Hope this clarifies things for people

This is great news. Really looking forward to trying out the new server. Might take some adjusting to get used to the low ping!
