Tankers!

This is a general announcement that we'll be taking down the NA Clan Wars server following the release of the 8.3 update and will provide additional details tomorrow. That's because we'll be deploying a major update to the NA cluster, including an event that will usher in a brand-new region: North America.

We expect the downtime to take about a week, giving us enough time to make sure everything is deployed correctly and is working. We'll provide updates should this date get pushed back.

Thanks for your patience and we hope you're looking forward to battling over North America as much as we are.


Cheers,

Minister_of_Propaganda

Is that connected with planned split of CW server into separate clusters?

Thanks for the info.  Can you answer any of the following questions?

1 - Is this adding North America or migrating us across?
2 - If it is a migration when will Europe be turned off?

You will get all the details about this tomorrow - but, the NA map is a replacement, not an addition to the EU map.
MoP is writing up a fully detailed article about this for tomorrow - be patient :)

Europe will be turned off tomorrow morning. It will be wiped during the downtime to allow all clans to participate in the first migration event. Once the map is up, Europe will no longer be available; the action will shift to North America along with this event.

We're working on a preview of the event; we'll hopefully have that done and all the details ready to go tomorrow.

Be sure to keep lots of info flowing, including any possible delays - in a swift manner please.

There's a lot riding on this after all.

If the random town I live in doesn't have it's own province named after it, and have a ridiculous amount of income I will be VERY upset. I'm also VERY much so joking.

I'm sure there will be lots of new maps in future patch notes... that and fixing the "rare instances" of tanks getting stuck.

Serene Coast
Live Oaks
Highway
Port.....

Personally I think Steppes works for Kansas, SD, ND, Iowa....Mountain Pass works for the Rockies, Artic Region for Canada/Alaska....  Fjords looks like some coastal cities.  Fishermans Bay, Redshire are fairly generic.
