Meathead says they're going to go to a central server.

Doesn't provide any details.

Says details to follow.

So one server for all or 3 in total ?

 

 

 

(Video is too choppy to watch... Must be hosted on NA East)

It's a bit unclear, but since it's a WG NA announcement I presume it's merging NA East and West (thank RNGesus, about time).

 

I guess it also could mean a unified global account system, which would also be cool, but I doubt it...

That's not happening, global ping times are far too high and divergent to have all servers merged.

They wouldn't merge globally.  This is NA only.  EU, RU, Asia, have different rules for what  mods are allowed and even have different vehicles.  It wouldn't make sense for them to even try to merge that all, even if the ping times wouldn't kill everyone.

Seeing as our ping to west from New Zealand and Australia is 150 ms +, I'm guessing we'll be looking at 200+. Not that any of y'all care. Good luck and best wishes. I'll get my coat. :arta:

Yep, I think your assumption is correct.  He says "Moving to a central server", not "Adding a central server", so NA East & NA West will just be NA.

The Devs mentioned last year they were dropping the NA East & West servers in favor of a single, centralized NA server. They were on the search for an area with suitable infrastructure to give good ping to players on both coasts.

Let us all hope to God that "suitable infrastructure" doesn't mean bargain-basement Telia hosting any longer.

 

Those bastards are more useless than an inflatable dartboard.

At least we have SEA, oh wait, lucky to even connect to that server.
