Almost like clockwork, late last year the SEA-ME-WE3 cable from Singapore to Australia broke. This time Wargaming was ready, so in order to save our ANZ players from bad ping over the break, we flicked the prime-time servers on 24/7 with the proviso that we’ll reevaluate it at the end of January when the cable was fixed.

While we have been elated to see the figures coming out of the server since its launch, it’s clear to ensure players of all tiers enjoy an optimal gameplay experience that we need to revert back to prime-time servers. However, there’s a few changes which we think will make people happy! Firstly, we’ve listened to your feedback about weekends, so the ANZ server will operate all weekend from Friday night (starting now at 5pm AEDT) until Monday morning (2am AEDT). Secondly, the weekday server start time will now be an hour earlier (kicking off at 5pm AEDT) to help our Kiwi friends out.

Changes will take effect from 1st of February. See you on the weekend – all weekend!

 

TL;DR:

New ANZ periphery server times from Feb 1 are as follows:

Monday to Thursday: 5pm AEDT to 2am AEDT

Friday – Sunday (weekends): 24/7 from Friday at 5pm AEDT until 2am Monday AEDT

Seems fair enough!

Thanks Jay, to many people work during the weekday so it doesnt justify keeping the server open 24 hours on a weekday. But with the cable still down the aussie server has done us proud during the time over the Christmas period. We will probably get the full time anz server next Christmas when the cable goes down again.

I don't see why such a late start, iv been playing on the AU server all morning since 9am and getting games, mind you it takes 5min to get a game from 9am - 10am but past there its completely fine past 10am, all you're doing by making it have such a late start is limiting your total players when the server issnt up because I bet you the players playing the AU server the at the time im posting this now wouldn't be playing the game at all if the AU server wasn't up

I often choose to play SG anyway.  It gets tiring running into the same people game after game because there are only 6 people running tier 9 TDs (as an example).

AU server pubbies tend to fold like a house of cards, I generally enjoy playing the SG server more interestingly enough. 

 

But I'm also grinding some real special tanks.

Yes, same here. The earlier start and being open all weekend is great news.

Try and play a Tier 1-4 with the same ease. Players are on at those times for sure, but they're mostly playing tiers 6 and up, we've got to make sure matchmaking is tolerable for all levels of players.

Excellent news, thank you WG

 

When can I expect to be able to transfer my NA account? Will there be another transfer round?

sweet BUT is the cable fixed - i and many others still have the 220+ ping to SEA server making the game hopeless to play 

ANZ server should remain until the cable is fully fixed and stable preferably upgraded to minimize the ping and LAG issue

Talk to your ISP. I'm 140-150 with no noticeable packet loss from the lower North Island.
