Good day fellow tankers.

 

Lag spikes have now made it impossible for me to play WOT, especially with fast tanks... Having a lag spike in my T71, and then seconds later finding it in a river with the crew drowning is always the highlight of my day. I now don't spend a cent on WOT anymore due to annoying inconsistent game play due to lag. I've lost countless games due to lag spikes....and even been team killed a few times for ramming team mates while I don't have control. Does anyone know for sure when server roaming will be implemented?

Where are you based, and what server do you normally play on? East or West?

they are still testing it as far as I know.

 

I too am based in the UK but I can still manage with a ping of 100-150ms. the recent lag spikes seem to come and go.

Server roaming is not gonna be for at least a year, it is still being tested, it's a low priority to WG, don't expect it for a while.

This time last year we where told roaming would be here in december or early this year this was announced to help calm the thousands of players that want to transfer from NA to EU and vice versa

 

It was meant to be introduced to open up clan wars between servers but as a spin off other players would be able to use it 

 

Its been about a year since announcing it and its still unclear on when its likely to be introduced  so is it not time they offered server transfers to those that want them in the same way they have done 5 times now to populate the SEA server

 

Its beyond beliefe that such a basic feature in most games (roaming) is such a bloody problem in this one if they had treated each server equally from day one there would be no problems with players from other servers having stuff reserved for a select server group

 

Forget the roaming feature let them work on it in thier own time we need server transfers ASAP while they perfect the roaming feature

I just don't understand why the Euro players even signed up for the NA server, as both NA and EU servers went online at the same time.

tbh by the time I realised there was a seperate client I was quite far into the game as my browser directed me to the NA one first.

 

besides, I quite like it here :-)

Well not all of us are from Europe. I'm in Africa. Now in generally that would defauly me to the EU servers rightly so, as I would have the lowest latency there. This is what Battle.Net did. However when I signed up for WoT, it took me directly to the NA download. I didn't know WoT was as big as it was, so I didn't know there were EU servers or even russian servers, so I just downloaded the client and set up my account.

 

Sadly the client was the NA client, and I've been stuck ever since due to my investment in premium vehicles.

Back in the early days there was no regional warnings like we have now google just took you straight to the download page it just happened to be for the NA client most of us didnt know that unlike most other games WOT had different clients for each server or that there where so few servers

Again, there needs to be a yearly open season to transfer between servers.
