I bet they close west, keep east. Least cost/time involved. East always had a much higher player count.

With Wargaming being based out of San Francisco, I doubt that would be happening. However, he did say they were moving, so maybe it won't be just the servers that are moving...

It's almost like the original idea of having a central server before they split it up, was the best idea.

 

Ex-Com block people have to try it every way except the right way then finally get to that right way we all saw in the beginning, but only after they act like it's a damn epiphany, and they are the first people to ever come up with the idea

you dont have to be at your data center. the data center will be central/northern, like chicago area most likely. thats where the US network converges. 

 

its incredibly common to outsource racking and physical upkeep. they do that now.

At least with 2 servers if 1 had lag you could swap to try and avoid it. With 1 server you won't have the option.

Now when he says "central server" does he mean a server in the central US, or does he mean like an overall centralized server for NA/EU/RU?

 

that's a stupid question, no large game will ever centralize a server for several countries, there's a reason why MMOs keep separate servers for different countries

Never a stupid question, just a stupid answer like yours.  You did not really answer it well, world wide ping would only benefit the continent it is on driving the player base even smaller.  Regional pricing, NA has smallest population but propably the bigger cash cow per person per person because of the economy.  Language, probably biggest headache in Europe with anyone not speaking english bs german vs french vs what ever; might work together with no communication but you cannot suggest, comment, or stat rage if you dont understand each other

if you think my answer is stupid then you need to go do your research and learn why servers are put in different countries, it would take too long to explain here and it's already out there for you on the internet with a simple google search

It sounds like central means the middle of United States, we will just have to wait for further info. See y'all on the battlefield.

NA is not a country.

Therefore, your answer is stupid incorrect.

No [edited] shirlock and my answer is not incorrect, North America is North America aka continents and the countries that lie on them are divided, gratz on finally learning what you're supposed to learn in elementary school

What will most likely happen is that they will merge the east and west server to cover the NA players and open the Brazilian server that was mentioned a few months ago for the SA players, it would make sense since they could transfer US West server stuff down to SA and move the east coast server to Chicago. But I guess wait and see.

I guarantee you this is not going to bode (server changes because they will do it on the cheap) well and who in the hell picked this dude "Meathead" as a commentator???  He's comes off sooo bad. 35 seconds into his video and I turned it off. The appearance and his voice reminds me of a monkey throwing poo at the people at a zoo.

 

Might as well start investing into Blizzard/Activision stock and into their games again, unless WG starts to spend a little money when they consolidate their NA servers this is all going to be a train wreck.

And I am basing this on past practices on how they have done their coding of their game/quality control/IT department (hahahahaha yea that too).

I highly doubt the servers are sitting in a room somewhere in a building that WG owns. They can probably spin that stuff up just about anywhere.

Do you actually ever read what you write?

Go slow and lets review your past statements.


 

With 30+ years in telecom as a network tech you're not going to teach me anything...


 

... and its Sherlock, stupid.
