When you say US players, is that mostly US players based in Hawaii ?, that would really pump up our server population

 

 

Err.

I wrote "Support us" As in "Support WG" nothing to do with USA or Hawaii :) hehe..

But basically I meant, if the numbers are there to support a full time server, then we can do a full time server.
and that's probably going to need the help of our player base, with things like 

  • Refer a friend.
  • Recruiting / promoting
  • Dragging back old friends
  • Streamers / Youtubers / Facebookers / Etc
  • Etc.

I might make an appearance for the event if I can pull together the funds for a return flight from Brisbane

Nice - a bit of hump day launch day action. The gents in the NZ meetup event were talking about something and i thought my forum bot had missed it.

 

My week for that week looks like this:

 

Wed night: WG meet up Sydney

Thursday day: travel to Albury

Thursday night: on the piss in Albury

Friday day: recover

Friday night: Midnight Oil in Albury

Saturday: recover, another day on the piss

Sunday night: finally get to play on the new Sydney WG server, find a new reason for being a skrub rather than ping.

Wednesday was a real dilemma... run the JP Morgan or tank meet up. The decision took significantly less than my ping to the SG server, i can tell you.

200s - that's leak + grab beer. Before you had to choose and still would struggle to make it back before the countdown finished.

I don't want to pour cold water all over this admittedly fantastic news, however... I can't help but think that this ship has sailed.  It would have been great a couple years ago when we were trying to take on the [content removed] Viets in CW and had to suffer through ridiculous ping.  Many of us walked away after that and you will be lucky to get most back.  We were screaming for a server then and I'd bet there were a lot more of us playing then than now.

 

With that said, kudos where it is due - this is great news overall.  I just hope it works!

I wonder if the MM has the ability to allocate servers dynamically based on estimated queue times by tier? Like an overflow. Ie if you're playing a tier with adequate ANZ pop, it queues you there, but if you're in the fringe tiers it will just queue you with the larger base. Would also help ease the new ANZ player experience just dipping their toe in for the first time only to find they are stuck in a queue the whole time.

So near, and yet so far...

 

I live in NZ and my son lives in Perth. As it so happens I am over in Oz visiting him between 28 Oct and 17 November. We both have accounts on NA and platoon most evenings. And even more is that we both have our birthday on 1 November.

 

And yet we can't get to Sydney and have one heck of a birthday bash with you guys.

 

He plays on a 15" laptop  with low def graphics. Yet he has the obj 260 and I haven't got to the T55 yet.

 

p.s. I already have an ASIA account so will be using that.

This is great news!!!!!!! Finally WG are listening to feedback. I hope this works out for us, and them of course. Just in time for the cable to be fixed. Does this mean the ASIA server players have access to the ANZ periphery too? would be nice to finally have an advantage over their 20ms and less ping rates.. :P

As much as it isnt ideal for my West based Clan I cannot applaud this enough and will be pushing hard for all to support something we have always asked for, the key issue now is to identify a group to blame for poor games, Kiwis? people from Bendigo? not us, we are the beautiful idiots of this nation, it could not be the fault of people who look so good in a tank top at a formal dinner, but those [content removed] wont stop camping.

and I just got a friendly helpful and informative reply to a ticket I put in yesterday, wot is happening here.

I have some gamer friends over in Hawaii, I have asked them to come over to play WoT from other games, their opinion was that, the ping rate was  too high, this ANZ server will change all that, because  Hawaii to Sydney has to be pretty quick ping wise, so I will pass on the news to them.

Are you at liberty to say what parameters were used for the simulations? Things like average number of players and tier spread used?

So.....what happens-

 

-if I have a unified NA wows account and NA Wot and WoWp account?

Does only the NA wot account get transferred over and I still have the Wows and wowp accounts under my old details?

 

-if I have SEA account that uses the same email address the NA account? If there a way to transfer progress and premium tanks from the existing SEA account over to the transferred NA account?
