Hey. Sry if this has been discussed elsewhere. Not getting a match early in the morning on the ANZ server is a bit of a drag - often 5 min timeout. So it seems like ppl leave and give up meaning it's hard to cross the 'critical mass' of ppl playing and not leaving. Wondering if these ideas would help?

 

1) Let us see which tiers are in cue, so we can match the majority and hopefully get 30 ppl for a game

2) More 8 vs 8 or whatever they are games. I really like these anyway to change it up, but they're definitely not too bad. Prob annoying for ppl who like stats - ruining avg dmg and MOE etc. I guess.... I don't personally care, but others will. 

 

Any other ideas?

This has been discussed quite a lot, the risk is that if they show what tiers are being played there will be no one else playing other tiers, also people would only play to be top tier and it just wouldn't work very well.

ANZ isn't supposed to run 24/7 and was originally intended for 6-12pm AEDST

 

Limiting the window for AU/NZ community is the best bet for a competitive server; and the meta should improve one SMW3 is repaired; soon hopefully

Bit late to the complain train, but couldn't wg do something like what blizz did with wow and have connected servers so we get aus and others get singapore but both are tied together so we can interact and battle with each other? does seem a bit far fetched for wot but meh one can hope.

I believe that would make both sides a lot more laggy, no matter the location as the two servers would have to talk to each other and that would induce quite a bit of lag i can imagine.

Correct me if i'm wrong.

The ANZ server is not meant to be played 24/7 because of the low server population. It's only running 24/7 at the moment as the Perth-Singapore cable is currently down.

Once the cable is back up and running (within the week hopefully), expect the running times for the server to change from 24/7 back to part time. Hopefully if it does go back to a part time server that the times are extended beyond the 6pm-12am times.

Don't see how you can expect to get a game at 7am though.

We all know this. Constantly saying 'it's not meant to be 24/7' is pointless - singapore is unplayable every time SMW3 breaks. 

 

The point of the thread is how to offer a chance to get into a match instead of cuing for 30 min then quitting. We all know this will come up again for weeks/months every time the cable breaks (a few times each year).  

 

The way i 'expect' a game at 7am is to use some of my original suggestions (8 vs 8 games or let us see cue tiers). Why not make simple changes to let us play a match? If you have other ideas please share.

Meanwhile, WG springs some sort of update on us (guessing for the rasha sherman) meaning even all the bots would have been logged out so it's a tad quiet.

A few things they could do to ease the frustration - change reserves to only count time in actual battles, not queue time. Second they could add a mini game to play while sitting in the queue. Tabbing out is basically your only option and they do give us the 5 second 'red' highlight for the taskbar at least, but an auditory notification might help as well.

There is another problem on this SERVER and that is Asian clans dropping in to do a bit of stat padding in their Gold filled T10 tanks. This is ruining the gameplay for the newcomers to this game. YETI I'm looking at you! We would like to get more new players on this server but having stat players drop in is disgusting, give them ago FFS. Most of the new players still haven't learnt to angle as yet!

Yeah can all those Asian Yeti players please go back to Asia...or Russia or wherever they came from. Ruining my ability to not be good at the game.

"You guys run around in t10 tanks with, prem consumables, prem rounds, prem crews and even prem modules and that is not fair on the newbies in t8, how do you expect the server to survive if this is what they get from your clan. Some of us want this server to survive."                   

“They loaded nothing but gold in a tier 8 game in their platoon of 55a's. They don't even aim when they know their Heat rounds will pen all, just too lazy to aim I guess. I wonder why these blue players need to do that? Do they call it stat padding or are they just scared of losing?”

It must be Mongolia because that's where Yeti's come from; between China and Russia

 

mongolia should get its own server imo

How are gold filled Asian T10 tanks being used for stat padding and ruining “new players gameplay?”

 

Think about it and get back to us. 

 

Meanwhile if you are a new player I suggest you watch out for all the tier ten matches. Did fail platoons get switched back on again?

 

Or pro tip if you are new don’t buy a tier 8 premium, apparently angling is necessary to get gud in all the tier 10 battles you will have. 

 

Or....or perhaps you actually meant evil foreign players take a big latency hit just for the sole purpose of ruining low tier ANZ gameplay in actual low tier tanks when it would be easier for them to statpad on the Singapore node. 

 

If so please can you provide statistical evidence so we can right this heinous crime?

Yeti playing on ANZ server?

But but but 

sigh :facepalm:

 

And if you don't know how to angle your tank by the time you reach tier 10 battles.

You probably should go back to low tiers and learn the basics anyway no? 

 

Also did he remove the post after he realized how dumb it was?

or did it get nuked :teethhappy:

nah there was one put in here that he complained about YETI coming to the ANZ server and seal clubbing all the new aussie players that still dont even know how to angle their tier 10 tanks.

was a pretty good meme :)

​Apparently my post mocking him for it got deleted too... must have been like some sort of mutually assured destruction thing or matter/antimatter.
