The only part of this game that most of my friends still play are skirmishes.

And every night our Teamspeak server slows way down when they are turned off.

 

What reason has WG given for this short sighted decision?

We would continue to play throughout the wee hours if we could.

 

Are we the only clan that actually feels this way?

I might be wrong, but isn't this a self fulfilling policy?

I prefer the set times. Players know these times and there are plenty of teams queuing in throughout that period which nearly guarantees short queue time.

While I can see the potential value of open at all or more times, I like knowing that if I play at certain times I can just grind what I want to grind and not be dragged into SH by my clan.

I fully understand that point. (good post)

However, there are many players that cannot make that time slot. (I for one due to work)

For me and others like me that are unavailable during the WG "special" time would like to have some other modes besides randon battles. They cram ALL the other modes into their special time. (CW, SH, tournaments, ranked battles) It would not be much to ask that they open up SH a bit more. A 12 hour window should give everyone a chance to play some.

Of course, none of this would be an issue if they would not have cut their own game into 4 regions to start with. I am still trying to figure that decision out.

This conjured a very interesting image in my head.

 

Imagine logging onto any server you wanted to?

I know there would be serious pluses and minuses.

 

How would the game be if we could simply play in any region.

Want anime tanks? Well, log onto the asia server.

Need to find people who speak your language? Try the EU server.

Hate the meta on the NA server? Try the RU then.

 

Wow.. I would f'in love that. Ping be damned.

Short of the China server, how hard would it be?

 

*Yes, I know there would be drawbacks as well.

I believe  WG knows that rigger clans would abuse Strongholds if they were available when maybe their 2 or 3 teams could pre-plan to be on when practically no one else is.

I forgot about those who have other commitments like maybe working 2nd shift.
