I don't know why WG decided to move the server from SG to HK, for Chinese players maybe? But the reality is, as a Chinese player, I used to get 70+ms delay when the server was in SG, without any significant package loss. 

 

Now, I have to suffer 200+ms delay with dramatic package loss at the same time!!!!! Can you imagine that it's more laggy to play on HK server than to play on NA server at midnight as a Mainland Chinese player?!?!

  Players from mainland China wants to experience World of Tanks post-1.0, but KongZhong still hasn't updated to 1.0. In fact I think it is still on 0.9, making players from mainland China moving to SEA server. When they find that the server moved to Hong Kong, they are upset with the connection issue, so they whine.


What I would say to them is to go play 0.9 on KongZhong if they are unsatisfied with the connection.

Can't complain about the connectivity issue if they are to play on SEA. It's not like someone is forcing them to play here.

There are a lot of Chinese players who moved here a long time ago and who are used to Singapore server ping though. This still applies to them, and anyway it doesn't matter whether they were from KongZhong or not, if they get worse ping even though the server is closer something is probably wrong.

It's complicated. Someone would say the biggest issue of Kongzhong is the absence of 1.0 update. For me, the "pay to win" environment, the ignorance of illegal mods, as well as zombies in Kongzhong server, are the real deal breakers.

 

Nowadays people always say WG is more and more "pay to win", but if you take a look at Kongzhong, you will find how decent WG is.

It's not about Kongzhong vs SEA. It's about SG vs HK. I never really played on Kongzhong server. I am a 50k battles tanker on NA server, back to 2013 when I was studying in the U.S. Now NA server is not a good option for me since I'm back to Mainland China, unless I wish to give myself a heart attack as I mentioned.

 Hi PLA, I have encountered the same issue with you do. HK server sucks compared with SG server, its very ridiculous that  the connection from China mainland to HK is even worse than to SG. I'm a player since 2014 and it seems WG is losing players like me. I cant bear the ping@200 and the serving shows losing packing all day long. [edited] did WG do actually?????

Probably a problem with the ISP, as the connection of ISPs from China to HK is not very direct.

It is what it is. It's impossible for players like you and me to commit to HK server until they fix the network problem. Or maybe the ISP will fix the problem one day. Who knows.

Great topic.

SG server is way stronger and steadier than the HK server.

As a Chinese player I suffer from 200ping and ligh package loss on HK server, but that never happened back in the days at SG.

The HK server network is provided by China Mobile which sucks.

Hopes WG reevaluate it seriously.

The location isn't the problem, it's the provider being a bottom-of-the barrel discount ISP, because the population on this server is likely too small to support an actual functioning ISP.

LT-playing masochist. It's too much fun to be a mosquito.

My ping is 350- 400 in battles, and the lag is other worldly.

 

Haven't played for a while, few months.

 

Ping and lag to Singapore server was LESS even when shark was snacking on cable!. And was less from NZ to NA, 8 years ago!!!!!!.

 

AND.....the WG Mods and staff kept telling us to all wait for the see-me-wea cable upgrade, then they up and relocate server to HK, WITHOUT prior notice to players.

 

Smells fishy. We all know WHY they REALLY moved to HK, better laws supporting their operations. HK is province of China, falls under Chinese law, one would assume. Singapore isn't so doesn't, one would also assume.

No?.

Would make operating a business much simpler, considering the money we deposit into the bank of cypress is destined for russia.

Hell, I think Russia by allowing this company to flourish has single-handedly saved Cypress from bankruptcy, as they were the last domino in the great scapegoat scramble recession of 2007-8, where so many European countries got named as being the one to take the fall. I can't imagine it's very easy to start a big private business in Russia.

How is this a whine? I live in Sydney and I can confirm the SG server is obviously much better than HK server, just because you live in HK and it doesn't affect you so other players' game experience should be ignored?

 

What a disgusting self-entitled reply.

Be it due to distance or server issue, I find problems happening more frequently than previously on SG. More DCs and more sudden spikes resulting in the time-warping of enemy tanks or driving into walls or off cliffs. I.e. more service instability.

Are you referring to having to play in US prime time? Doesn't the NA server have a large enough player base to have a reasonable amount on at all hours? (esp. compared to the lower number of players on SEA).
