I registered a ticket with NA support last month to Transfer (when it included a premium tank and time)

 

Do I need to re-register using the survey?

 

They said if you have already expressed interest via support you don't have to do the survey, but if you want to be safe/doubly sure, by all means do the survey.

I put a ticket into WG Asia asking some questions about the server transfer.

 

The reply was to ask WG NA.

 

This is my account which I have spent alot of time and money on.  It's important to me to know how they are handling the transfer.  If the staff at WG Asia don't know, shouldn't they be proactive and find out?

In response to the above ticket I submitted a ticket to WG NA stating I want my transfer canceled.  The forum staff here have no sense of humor and at least one of them is unable to differentiate between a warning and a punishment.

 

Dan - your replies have been awesome.

There's now a screwup on the NA transfers to this server. Initially it was promised that our accounts would be merged but now it seems that they won't be. This is not cool because myself and others had already started buying some premiums in anticipation. Can any mod here clarify what the hell is happening? Any good will has completely evaporated with this transfer.

They added Australia to the server select drop down, doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be live before the 1st of course, just getting it into the client ahead of time etc.

 

Interesting though that the other option is Hong Kong, I thought it was in Singapore? Is it being moved?

At a guess 'W.o.T.' will remain the SG one, but the HK one seems to have snuck in relatively unannounced.

Maybe, I initially ignored it as a generic entry, but checked the NA client and they don't have that, be interesting to see how a population split 3 ways turns out if that's the case.

 

Either way I just want one of the servers to come up so I can check out the Super Conqueror (and probably get malinovka encounter with 5 of them per side as my first battle in it)

Maybe they are moving the server to Hong Kong because of all the issues that Singapore has been having for the last few years with cable faults. Could be WG leases a server(s) for X amount of years to get value for money, then towards the end of that time WG looks at performance for $$$$$ spent, and that singapore is sadly lacking performance wise, so as  the saying goes "im outta here"

Dont worry me, long as we have our ANZ server for us in Aussie and kiwiland. Far as im concerned they can put the asian server in timbuktu for all I care.

Besides WoT relocating to Hong Kong may actually bring a drop in ping and a different set of protocols for repairing the cable so we dont have to wait for 3 months for the government officials to get off their arses and do something about it.

Still its no longer a problem for me.

So you only play 6pm AEDST to 12am AEDST?

 

You might give a fig about where the server is if you play outside those hours, say during the day on the weekend or on a public holiday.

i will worry about that as it happens, anything  about worrying before next wednesday about what will happen is wasted effort as far as im concerned. Besides if i wanted to play during the day i would just play the NA server, its only 112 ping rate for me, so I dont need to go on the Hong Kong cluster.

Hi everyone,

 

This morning you may have received an email with a link to the NA transfer site. But as some of our more savvy members would have noticed, the website isn’t active yet. Unfortunately we jumped the gun and it was missing some key information, such as the fact that the transfer website will not be live until Oct 26 at 9pm AEDT (Sydney)/ 3am PDT (California)/6am EST (New York). It will remain open until Nov 6 at 9pm AEDT (Sydney)/ 3am PDT (California)/6am EST (New York).

 

We apologise for any confusion this may have caused, please check back at the time above to complete your transfer.

 

Now, to the concerns around how account transfers work and any possible ‘merge’ of multiple accounts. While we acknowledge there has been some confusion around wording originally sent in relation to possible ‘account merges’, at this stage it is not possible for us to merge NA accounts with Asia accounts due to current technology constraints.

 

If you register your NA account to be transferred to the Asia server, it will not be merged with your Asia account. In order to get your NA account transferred over to the Asia server, you will need separate email addresses for each account. If your Asia and NA accounts are currently on different email addresses, you should be fine to go. If they use the same email address you will need to create a new email address for the NA account to link to. Our system will not allow you to link two accounts to one email address. Once the website is active and you are logged in with your current NA account, you enter the desired email address for the account to be linked to.

 

We understand some of you strongly wish to merge accounts and while we can’t currently offer that, we are actively looking into how to make it possible. However please note there is currently no available timeframe for when this might be completed.

 

The final looming question is what will be transferred over and will any profile data be lost during that process. The good news here is that everything in your NA account will be copied over as it was to your new Asia account. Premium tanks, crew XP, player XP, premium time – the lot. It will all be there in your Asia account like it was in your NA account.   

 

Thanks,

Wargaming ANZ

Aussie_Kozzy,

 

There are some of us who have the same in-game name on both SEA and NA clusters.  for example, Zardenagger exists on both, but in my case, I've used different email addresses for them.

Has this been considered?

Will they attempt to rename the new copy to some other name? (Like Zardenagger2 for example?)

Or will they contact us if this becomes an issue?
 

PS: was good to meet you in Auckland last Friday.
