I might have missed something but in the last day or so the numbers on the Au/NZ server have doubled. Its obviously not due to new player recruitment or older players coming back, so what has cause the migration of players from the Singapore server? Average number of online players at 10pm have jumped from around 1700 to over 4000 the last few days. I'm not complaining. My waiting time has halved and I still have low ping. Just interested if anyone knows what WG have done to make this happen?

One theory is the kursk marathon but given the reward I'm a little dubious. In fact i'd sooner believe something just broke in how they count players.

Also doesn't really explain why the Sg numbers aren't also up.

Don't think the School Holidays make any difference unless WG is giving away V-bucks. All the little buggers play Fortnite now.

My theory is that WG has re-configured the auto login, so all the players from India and Japan are automatically being logged in to the AUS server, where they were previously being auto logged into the SG server.

Whoever they are, the top tier guys, on average, are poor players (worse than me - and that’s saying something). I can't believe how easy it’s been to hit and pen these guys.

That would explain why there wasn't a commensurate increase in SG numbers. In fact SG numbers seem to be about 10k pretty constantly. Ie it's like as per your theory the autologin is chucking anyone after that onto ANZ as a form of load balancing.

It’s making for some absolute rubbish gameplay. My game style is highly dependent on teamwork and some of these plays being made are mind boggling.

Honestly besides getting into a game quicker I haven't noticed any difference in player skills over normal. There are good and bad players throughout. I just hope to be on the good player list (or at least Improving player).

Don't know about India, but I think you are right on the money for Japan and Korea.  Makes sense now - they've just announced they are moving the Singapore server to Hong Kong.  The extra players might mean the server doesn't die.

With HK the disturbance in the force has gone. Had a few games tonight that were fun with around 1700 online. Even a low stat windowlicker like me could feel the difference in gameplay let alone numbers. I will return to my lurking in the forum.

So how is this HK server going to affect the ANZ numbers are all the [Japanese]/Korean players now going to be re-routed to HK I'm sure it will over time start to hurt ANZ server, I have seen with other forum posts players asking to have accounts sent back to the NA because the ping rate is the same for AUS/NZ on either the HK or the NA.

Just tested the ping to HK - 260+ (20 to ANZ)  I get a better ping to NA.

 

I think will mean more players staying in ANZ

Have a read of the other threads Wazz. Most AU locations seem to have the same ping to HK as SG unless they are in WA. If you're not in Perth raise with WG and they Will try and sort ISPs
