I've been playing for years on the NA server, every now and then WG tries to recruit to transfer to SEA server. Was umming and arrring over it but decided not to.

Anyway, last couple of days I thought I may as well create a new account on SEA (start from scratch, just go with specific TD lines) and try it out. So I created my account and tried starting from T1 again.

 

Try, try, try , try .................. still trrryyyyiinnggg 

 

Sorry to say you guys that love the SEA, but honestly, what a joke. I could not get a T1 battle during the day, I tried and tried, but just gave up. Currently as I type, there are 1177 players on ANZ, its 8:45 Thurs night, and I have timed out 3 times now in a T3 med trying to get into a battle. I have had to move to the HK server to get any action. If I was an Aus newbie downloading the game for the first time, I would have given it up and not returned, its that bad.

 

So, my question is, why are you guys on this server?

If its Clan stuff, surely you can create an Aussie Clan on NA? I really haven't seen any difference the ping time does to my gaming at all when I'm on NA.

Why stay? Is the majority of players in the higher tiers or something? What's the attraction?

 

Just curious, Raven.

50ms as opposed to 200-300 ms. Hard choices. Yeah majority of the players will be playing 6+

Well I don't really play before 4pm, which is when the ANZ server picks up.  If I want to play 5 or lower, I do it on the HK server, usually during the day.

 

No matter which server you use on ASIA, you will get a lot of players from the Asian countries, which bulks-up the numbers.

 

ANZ used to only on from 4pm till 1am, then it changed to 24 hours on weekends and now it's just left on all the time since the last cable problems.

 

I transferred my account from NA to SEA back in late 2012.  Still have an alt NA account, but rarely used.

i am on this server because when i install the client the game directs me to this server and not to NA or EU or RU, i think thats why i play here...

 

 

What are the attractions? All of them.

 

Clans? Plenty of english speaking clans. Some are even offering M60 codes althou i am not sure how does that type of scam business works

 

Skill? Play ranked and use a OP tank to get higher ranks as fast as possible because the lower ranks few much like playing random battlesw (with more gold spam though) All the unicums at rank 15 will not deny that they only managed to get rank 15 by playing OP tanks, yet you should take a look at the ranked top WR in the ranked battles(45-50%) :D Thats the average Seven pirates WR at ranked... I had 2 pirates in my team today (rank 15) and they were so purple my screen almost exploded, but then the XVM noobs in my team (some few blue noobs) thought we had already won the match before the battle even started, and they all went rushing city and commited to hopeless positions coz they believe pirates are gods, and could save them, next thing u see is battle lost in 3 minutes lol.

All depends on what you take in to battle, tier and type.  Arty tier 9 or 10 would be about the slowest, but I have taken such in really quick at times too.

 

HK before 4 pm and ANZ after 4pm.

 

Except on weekends when I only do ANZ.

Play on the HK server for Tiers 1 to 3 for better queue times.

You seriously expect 29 other players to be playing low tier tanks when the population online is less than 2k?

 

You clearly aren't aware of how new and small the server is.

Hong Kong.

 

Usually get a battle within 30 seconds, even during weird times like 2am with 7k people on.

 

Nobody really goes to ANZ to play low tiers. That's like stabbing yourself in the chest and complaining that it hurts.

The queue time is unbelievable one the AUS server, Better off playing on HK, more players, higher chance of getting a game.

Hate the game, not the player

Answer: Absolutely nothing but the low ping BUT even this isn't enough due to ridiculously low player numbers!

 

I'm most likely going to play back on EU despite the high ping as at least you can get a game quickly.

So what differences in game experience can you expect with the low ping time? I havent really played enough on the ANZ yet to see anything noticeable compared to NA.   

..... Just want to know what to look out for, to compare

You clearly aren't aware of how new and small the server is.

 

But really, how are you suppose to attract (and retain) new players to the server (i.e. new players T1's) , when they cant even get their first game under their belt?

 

And no, I didn't know how new and small the server was, because I've been playing the NA for over 7.5yrs, Has the ANZ just been created? I thought it has been around for a while? Or was the SEA originally just servers in HK etc not Aus?

This server started at 1-2k, and 4k was the peak hours.

 

Time to bring back +-3 MM?

ANZ periphery has only been online since Nov/Dec 2017, it is very new. If people actually login to the ANZ server then queue times aren't that bad but for some reason people just play HK because queue times are better. Those people are the main reason ANZ is suffering as they aren't supporting it.

 

We've been asking for a server in ANZ for years, we finally get it and no one wants to use it.

It will depend what your NA ping was like but typical things that low ping helps are obviously where reactions are involved. Corner pokes, hill pokes etc.. Plus the feeling of being directly in control of your tank rather than having that slight driving thru honey feeling when there is a wait before your inputs are acted on by the server.

It's more that there aren't many people left who want to use it. Plus WG keeps it open during the day which just highlights the issue. It's fine of an evening at least for most mid to upper tiers.
