To be fair, that wasn't WG that killed that. It was being run by a separate bunch. If you ask me it was fairly generous of WG to allow people to transfer over to their servers while keeping a lot of what they got on the KR server despite a drastically different economy.

So this may fit here, since it would reduce waiting times.

Why have online numbers suddenly doubled?

Now where was my screenshot of people with 2k average XP in their service record... god knows how many credits they get

 

I'm surprised if most of them didn't just quit playing outright after the transfer. Or maybe they did.


You silence those who speak the truth, and you wonder why everyone is talking rubbish

You reward those who win by cheating, and you wonder why you can't produce people who can win while playing fairly

You punish people who put in effort to play, and you wonder why all who remain are the unmotivated

I think a few are curious but i've not heard anything from WG yet.

 

Current theories...

Actual growth in numbers but only on the ANZ cluster

WG changing their auto login to help balance between SG and ANZ

WG stuffed something up and the numbers are being over reported for the ANZ server

I would go with option 3, especially since both  servers were showing 100% plus growth mid week last week.

Did SG actually grow by that much? My impression was that it was around 8-10k before.

 

The other element of the school holiday theory is why we didn't see similar increases during the first to second term holidays. Have all those kids got over the fortnite fad and coming back for tanking? I guess we'll see in a couple weeks when they all get back to the books.

Pretty sure both doubled, but as usual the forum has made me doubt myself, I will however stick to a doubling.

I have seen 12k Sg and 5k Syd.

 I don't know KR server economy. I played WOT in KR server only few months 4 years ago. And I am playing SG server 2 years, So, I just wanna say about some network issues, not anything else. Focus bro

I do recall that the numbers went right back down to pre KR-merger levels only a couple months after the merger. I don't know if we just happened to be bleeding players during that period for some other reason or if most of the KR players who were transferred over DID quit.

I would say most of them quit. Past campaigns Korea server had maybe 1/3 to half the number of reward tanks compared to ASIA, so we should be seeing around 1/4 to 1/3 of the tanks going to these players after the merger. But we're not.

They quit because all but one clan got comprehensively destroyed.

 

The shock of being shit in ASIA CW Meta wouldn't have helped.

So currently 4.4k Syd and 11.6k Sg servers at 22:23 Monday.

Pretty big numbers for recent time I reckon.

 

Well last game had 20 Players with Japanese as client language and only 5 English. Maybe the Japanese have holidays too.

Thats normal situation for small pond resident. If asia somehow merge with RU or EU, big fish here will be eaten alive by sharks over there too.

Maybe, maybe not. IIRC, several of our best players have played extended periods on the EU servers and did fine. If anyone were likely to see stat drops it'd be blues and teals.

LT-playing masochist. It's too much fun to be a mosquito.

To be fair not sure brutal was one of the ones spouting the MM rigged nonsense. But it was clearly salt worthy...

 

 .

 

The salt is not making simple fixes to obvious problems.

 

I dont know how the WG project management system works, it could well be like some vast Soviet style bureaucracy where a simple decisions takes months to approve.

 

But time is money, server numbers are dropping, WG need to start making more posts winners. And trying to get the ball rolling in the afternoon when there are only a few hundred on the server has been a problem since day 1, like to see some action to give relief the the AUS server loyalists like me.

This is a "me too" - I've seen player numbers dropping like a rock over the past months. What is killing this game is cheats. I am now getting vulnerable spot hits with great accuracy over half the map away. Through tiny gaps. With only 5% of my tank available to shoot at. I have been playing long enough to know that this isn't lucky shots. For this game to survive and thrive like it used to:-

Ban permanently anyone using illegal cheats unless they pay a fee to rejoin (that would work), & second offence is permanent ban.

The game is an arena for genuine skill, & I am happy for anyone to be more or less skilled than me, ie either way it is a game I would want to come back to, because it's fair, & if I get out-gunned, well, that's room for improvement for me, & I enjoy getting better at what I do. If you take that legitimacy out of this game, WOT will lose people like me.

Today I could only get 1 game. Numbers are so low. The admin of this game are clearly on a down spiral. If they don't get tough on cheats (as opposed to just promising they will), it's bye-bye WOT.
