Hello's.

 

Previously there was..

1 Server in Singapore for the Asia server (the account holder) + 1 periphery server in Singapore which hosts games, and 1 periphery server in Australia which hosts games, And an additional periphery server in Hong Kong, which has been switched off up until now.

 

Now there is ..

1 Server in Singapore for the Asia server (the account holder) + 1 periphery server in Australia which hosts games, And the periphery server in Hong Kong switched on, to replace the Singapore periphery.

 

From Aus .. Sydney to HK is primarily/usually about the same as Sydney to Singapore..
AUS to Singapore the routing goes via Perth then up through the Perth to Singapore cable which breaks often for long periods of time.

AUS to Hong Kong, the routing goes up from Sydney, then over to Hong Kong, bypassing Perth.

 

A mass of routing has been optimized before the swapover..

But every location / every ISP / Etc has a different route / path... Some may not be optimal at the moment, and need the ISP's to adjust routing to optimal..

We request these changes to routing on behalf of players regularly..

 

So if you are having bad routing .. please get WG staff a copy of the routing you have, so we can work on getting it optimized for you.

To do this, you can drop to a cmd prompt.

And then ping the server with ... tracert wotasia2.login.wargaming.net

Then copy paste the results and send them through..
Either via support, skype, or PM them to me.

 

DO NOT post them publicly into the forums for your privacy..

 

Regards
Tan

Basically the big winners are those from northern Asia, and given they are said to be the biggest revenue source this makes sense for WG. It's just a shame ANZ isn't viable outside of peak.

Well since the Aus servers dead pretty much 90% of the time other than weekends and now getting an extra 130 odd ping to HK server have to say I'm sort of pissed off I took the transfer from NA last year as I'd have better ping there and way higher population.....strangely I don't think I'll be holding my breath to be allowed to desert this dead server and go back :(

Okay I am super confused.

 

The correct login for HK is wotasia1.login.wargaming.net, and when I test this via pingplotter I get a steady ping of about 300 (which is still too high), but it's way over that in-game.

 

Anyway, I will do as Tan's mentioned, in the hopes that eventually I'll get better routing.

Maybe we may be looking at ANZ being more viable during non-peak times due to Aussies/Kiwis being practically forced to play ANZ as the alternative is unplayable?

Are they seriously shutting down the Singapore server?  If so, this would be a ridiculous decision, the Australian server is a ghost town during most of the day, leaving the Singapore server the only possible option for playing.  Pings to Hong Kong are (right now) over 330ms, meaning the game is pretty much unplayable from Australia during off-peak times.

Hello,

 

Thanks for your update. So if I get it right, SEA players will have the choice of 3 server locations ? 

 

Singapore for now is still in server choice but unavailable. So that will be corrected and available ?

 

Thanks for your input.

 

Regards,

 

Mc

Does anyone know the correct addresses? I'm using login.worldoftanks.asia (IP 92.223.16.66) which is what I had before, but I don't know if that's current.

 

Of course, the WG server reference page hasn't been updated since 9.16  :facepalm::rolleyes:

No, SG will not be a playable server.

The Asia server is in Singapore (Which holds the accounts / etc / and doesn't play games)

The periphery servers which host the games, are now Hong Kong, and AUS.

NZ/AUS players should only be allowed to play NZ/AUS CW and randoms during prime time due to server pop. Keepo.

I copped and extra 50 ping with HK compared to Sg so from 127 to 180. Only played 1 game so not sure what to expect regards packet loss yet.

That is out of Melbourne, I should see an improvement according to Tan. perhaps my Optus routing to Syd prior to jumping to HK may be the prob.

I do however get 40 ping to Syd server, so maybe not.
