cool that HK has a server now so that our chinese brethren can join in instead of playing at KZ servers, but why not leave a sub-cluster at SG? ping to HK is deal-able (100-ish) from indonesia, but it isn't exactly ideal...

I'm pretty sure it's the great firewall that's stopping them from not playing on the KZ server... Unless you're saying HK counts as within China? We'll see what KZ does anyway.

 

Sub-cluster at SG... Nah, SEA population is too small to warrant that. And Vietnsmese might have better ping to HK than SG.

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

Of course, Vietnam is using AAG whose route connecting directly to Hongkong as well as Singapore

and about KZ, I don't want a massive human wave of players from mainland china. Hongkong was returned to China, I mean PRC on July 1st, 1997, and still in autonomous state until 2047. Despite autonomous state, PRC is conducting "one nation, two systems" in Hongkong and trying to fully control Hongkong. To be honest, Hongkong is still better than mainland china

HK's internet is not within the great firewall iirc, at least till its status as a SAR expires.

Because them we would have divided our audience between 3 peripheries. SG server remains intact, it's the "battle" server that's moved to HK. It's the same with ANZ periphery.

You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. Guess which one I am.

Is it just me or is anyone else experiencing problems logging in since the server move. I've been stuck on "Logging In'' for the past 5 minutes, I tried both ANZ and HK as well as opening with safe mode. Please help.

same here. getting a connection issue message when trying to connect to SG (since it's still listed). the problem with the site announcement is that they COMPLETELY FORGOT TO TELL US WHEN THEY'RE MOVING THE SERVER. which i'm assuming is right now.

what, i thought ELONG is from the mainland? as far as i'm concerned, they're not taiwanese. but ido agree that the population from SEA proper has tragically shrunk to a pathetic level. i'm assuming it's since WG failed to advertise and attract new players round here. IMHO the game is still relatively unknown in SEA; can say for certain that in Indonesia, it's still too niche/unknown to gather a "huh?" when one mentions WoT.

 

i sincerely do not believe that WG SG is happy with being complacent as an unknown brand in the region, but i do concede that it's very hard to promote tank in SEA since tanks aren't really a thing here, and there's only one tank anime: GUP. in fact, i think WOWS is more popular due to Kancolle and the plethora of ship animes, especially the ones highlighting Yamato. it's much easier to get a hardon from hearing Yamato's 460mm cannons than Maus' 120mm...

What does "Battle" server mean please. Does it mean we must rout through SG before going to HK, or something else. Ta

Not only in SEA but also in south asia WoT is rather a unknown game... well that is there for a good reason I mean in normal FPS you can pick up a gun and blaze away, but the same doesn't apply on WoT

It means all your battles are handled either at HK or ANZ, no longer is SG. Other data is still in Singapore. The same way where ANZ players connecting to ANZ does not have to route to SG when they are in a battle.

Sort of like playing your home games at the MCG (Hong Kong), but the end of season party up is still in Singapore (the real home ground if you like)!

KZ is the China server run by Kong Zhong.

 

Having the server in HK will not drag too many players from PRC as the Great Firewall of China and not very compliant state-owned ISPs will not offer great services to the SAR

Most people inside the great wall would have to use VPN

 

And guess which VPN server would they choose for a game that was originally in a certain country?

 

And people living in easy-difficulty countries wonder why they are complaining of ping >200ms now after basic arithmatics.

I don't really see a reason for players from China would choose here over KZ server apart from:

 

- Less P2W (since they can buy any tank in that server, even ST tanks)

- relieve from fierce drama and competition in China

- wants to play 1.0.2 (I heard for some reason they do not get 1.0?)
