Not because of performance issues, simply because game play has been absolutely horrific. Please let the east stay separate from the west.

It seems pretty normal for "hurp durp something new is happening" time.  Anytime they add or change anything it's like this.

Funny how a lot of people are acting like we have an entirely new player base since the merger.  I previously played both East and West (though mostly East because of the larger population) at Tiers IV-VI and personally never noticed that much of a difference in game play/team play.  No idea about the "skill" spread between the teams as I don't run XVM or any other mods.  Maybe it's more noticeable at higher tiers.

My ping is better, sometimes as low as the 14.  But the last 2 days have been a lot of blow outs.  Sometimes I'm on the good side of that, sometimes not.  What I see more of is strange battles where players seem to go unusual places like I would see when I accidentally logged onto west server.

I played on the east server. I am an above average player according to WN 8. Simple fact is the minute the servers merged gameplay became absolutely more horrific than it ever was. Way worse than it ever was. Most matches have been complete debacles and my win rate has plummeted since the merge. This can only be attributed to the sudden influx of West Server players. I''m not saying all of them suck, but man oh man, what the eff was going on over there.?
All the more reason skill needs to be taken into account in MM. and don't say it can't because they did it in the ranked battles.

I have to agree with all....game play has gone into the dumpster since the merge. I blamed it on "kids" being on at the time in the east when adults normally were and it was explained to me that the demographic of WOT is older family man looking to blow off steam after work.....well, that may be but there are plenty of kids on it and you can tell by a) game play b) messages in chat and c) names. 

I have a theory as to why the dismal blowouts.....usually 14 kills to 2 and usually not my team. My win percentage dropped from about 45% to MAYBE 10%.....it is rare that you see a balanced battle....(down to the last 2 or 4). That is, until friday afternoon when the premium accounts kicked it...whoa..suddenly every battle is balanced and no more blow outs and my win ratio went up to (estimated) 80%. I couldn't lose.....

So my theory is: prior to friday, ALL paid (key word is PAID) players with premium accounts (aka serious players) got put on the same team.....that's why the horrible mismatches. Then when Friday rolled around, all players were now equal (premium) and teams were more balanced.

I understand WOT is a business and is in it to make money...but if you're going to have the game biased like this, they should TELL people "if you don't pay for premium services you'll lose"

If someone can prove to me this isn't the case, I'll listen to reason but the evidence speaks for itself. To the minute on Friday when premium account kicked in, gameplay was 100% no, 1000% better......

I would say "only if the changes aren't an improvement"......if you make changes and it is detrimental to your customers, then you're on your way to being out of business...

(unless of course you're Microsoft, then you've got a captive customer base)

I played east and west. Same stupid crapbefore and after the merge. East players aren't better, just more of them.

these changes have been nothing but good to me.  I have no other perspective.

Second post OP?  Again unless your ping is much worse it is all confirmation bias.  I haven't noticed anything different in players, same bad teams mixed with good teams. It will continue to go back and forth like it always has.  And the game seems much smoother as my ping is steady even though very slightly higher.  Que times are much shorter which is nice also.

I do feel bad for the Aus and NZ players though, seems to have hurt them.

I have another theory on the blowouts: 15 today....one was 15 kills to....wait for it....ZERO. That's just wrong.....I just played a round, with a top tier SUY100....Tier VI....the guy was trying to drive through a WALL.....he fired 3 shots the whole round.....no hits and no kills....I checked his service record: 46% win rate....all kinds of awards....I know, you're going to tell me he's got a new tank....but sorry, if you don't know by Tier VI what you can and can't drive through, you're either brain dead, a moron, or not really a Tier VI player.

Know what I think? A bunch of kids playing with daddy's tanks that's what...I mean some haven't a clue what's going on and that's at Tier V and up.....how can you get to this level and not know how to drive a tank?

I had a buddy who was into WOW...he'd play 14 hours a day, every day. He said that some people make a good living building up profiles, then selling them. You could always tell because they'd be a top character, fully armed, and not have a clue......

I don't know what the issue is but I had maybe ONE blow out a week, now it's 15 to 20 a day....

I agree PLEASE put the servers back, not only latency issues,also now like a half hr down time around prime time 9pm and also not sure if anyone else has had this but teaming up with a friend of mine we NEVER see top positon in any game and whilst im gaming solo I get bottom and mid in teams and very rare seeing top. Last 30 odd games nvr saw top soloing. Also with mm why not even out the Skill lvls? aways awesome when either on winning or losing side steam rolling, and after game you see reason with skilled players.
