We've all been frustrated by low numbers on ANZ server, and as a result many have either moved to HK server, or quit playing (and taken up fortnite!). HK server for me is way too laggy - so not really an option (unless i play only SPG!).

 

Also, there's not enough low tier players on ANZ so new players cant start. They wait 5 minutes for a tier 1 or 2 game, dont understand why they cant get one and think the game is broken, and never come back. True!

 

So.....

 

I know we all hate BOTS, but....could WG increase the number of 7v7 battles in tier 1 and 2? AND include a greater number of semi smart BOTS (not the idiot training mission bots!) at low tiers so people can always get a battle? I suspect we would need some BOTS right up to tier 3? Hopefully they can get a real game at tier 4+?

 

Also, can we change the queue details to show which tier people in the queue are in (at least during low usage times)? I realise that feature was taken OUT to avoid perceived cheating - but i'd honestly prefer to at least get a game - and hoping all 30 players are in the same tier bracket is hopeless! Knowing what vehicle class they're in is also helpful, but with only 100 on the server it is more useful to ensure we're all similar tier. Obviously peak times (and 'peak' is currently only 1000 players!) is less of an issue.

 

And finally, could the auto server selector be 'encouraged' to direct more players to the ANZ server? ie. if ping is similar between ANZ and HK send them to ANZ?

The new Singapore cable is due to be ready on 14th September, possibly this can aid in directing players from south Asia to Australia. If not, I'd say that the Oz server needs to be considered a failed experiment and Australian based players given the option of transferring to NA since connection seems more stable to NA than HK.

Not sure how many would give up on the glorious anz ping just to get more stable ping to NA at non peak times.

I agree, would happily go back to NA server. This server is dead. Used to enjoy taking part in Skirmishes on NA server, trying to find another team playing here is almost impossible.  Given that the account merger which wargaming promised for those who came from NA server never happened they should allow us to go back.

 

If they won't then wargaming will just continue to bleed players.

A few diehards will want to keep the ANZ server, question is whether Wargaming want to pay for it.

It's mostly the ping advantage really. I guess to some players that ping advantage may not be as critical and hence would be willing to sacrifice it for off peak numbers on na.

If NA was the last resort they need to bring back the west coast server. Or throw a server in Hawaii.

Rather quit than play on a crappy NA 200 ping server, as for the connection being more stable that's debatable. I played Aion for several years and every year without fail around Christmas the cable would "magically" go down making any game unplayable due to the load.

Lets hope if the cable is fixed it attracts more local countries to ANZ.

Funnily enough, I actually get better ping to NA than I do to HK, and I even get less packet loss.

 

Ontop of this, I know a few people on NA who have said that if I ever hop server, they'd welcome me into their clans so I'd be straight back into the competition, and it is definitely something I have been considering.

 

That said, most people just complain about the lack of games at tiers 1-4, but you only play like 20 games at most in those tanks, so I'm sure you can just slug it out on HK until you hit tier 5 then come back to ANZ. Or just be like me and free xp to tier 6 on every new line you start, though for the British HT's I'll go straight to the Caernarvon.

I don't understand why but I like it. Back filled a crew in it. Only tanks I have in the line are SConq and the BP.
