This would be the biggest mistake I ever made. I had two accounts, one in ASIA  and on in the US then they said you can get a transfer, so I transferred from USA to ASIA and thought I could amalgamate my two accounts but then they said it cant be done. So I asked if WOT could gift me my tanks as you can gift when you buy, I sold the tanks that I had doubles of between the two Accounts and could they gift me my gold my XP and the free Experience but it seems all too bloody hard. Now  another thing I'm pissed off about is I cant get a game in the daylight hours, I live in New South Wales. they show there amount of players on line as ANZ 87 Total 2874 but no matter what tank or what tier I try to play I time out. ASIA WOT is a big big fail. I want out and transfer back to the USA server. anyone else having the same problem? Like things are just too bloody hard for WOT to do anything.

To get games during daytime hours you're best bet is to play on the hong kong server, the aus server doesn't pick up till the afternoon.

 

Not much of a fix though I know.

Yeah, I feel ya mate. Did the same thing back in the day, this account was transferred from NA server and I soon realized I had made a big mistake. Ping during daytime was worse on the Asia server. I actually started a new one on the NA server. This was a few years ago, and I've lost the details for the NA account, so I'm stuck on this server.

I also play daytime a bit, and also use the HK server. The game-play is awful, and it's usually a matter of grinding through the failscades while trying to carry as best I can with a 300 plus ping.

The other issue with the ANZ server is that I'm doing low tiers with a couple of lines. It's almost impossible to get a game at any time on T4 and below at any time, so I use my T6 & T7 SPG's (used to be arty only) to free XP through to T5, where I should be able to get games (with a 3 to 4 minute wait) to get me through.

The game-play is definitely better on ANZ, but I still get T8 & 9 heavies hiding behind my M12 on occasions :teethhappy: (the names indicate they may not be from AU or NZ though, just sayin':hiding:).

Have you guys checked with your isp about your routing? Mine is significantly better to HK than na.

I get around 130-150 ping to HK from Wollongong, I can't imagine USA would be anywhere near as good.

 

That said gameplay on HK is painful

WoT gameplay is the painful bit. The servers just offer different flavors of tomato.

Mine is same for either, Ezz. Nothing to do with OS routing, I live in a rural area, so OS ping is always meh. Having said that, connection to ANZ server is good, just the lack of players forcing me to go OS.

If there's 87 on the AU server during working hours, of course you won't get a game. People have lives, and the ANZ population on our server isn't huge to begin with.

I would strongly suggest that you play on the HK (Hong Kong) server during the day, which has much better ping than NA and will get you a game easily.

Hm. Let's see. Google says the distance from Wollongong to HK is 7400. I have 220-230-ish ping from the east side of North America and the distance is about 12,300 km, but my routing is very well-optimized. While there's a limit to how good a connection from HK to NSW would be, you should in theory be able to reduce that by about 20 or 30 ms with better routing.

Clearly you all need to move to WA. 50ms to ANZ, 80ms to HK.

But I tried speaking to my ISP regarding routing to HK, they looked (or wrote to me) as though I had two heads.
