EH: Hello Cabbage, sorry that I'm having a little trouble with the post format. Just wanted to ask a few questions that I believe would be asked by a lot of players.

 

#1: If we've already filled out the request via customer support ticket and not need to do it again, would we still be able to acquire the emblem and exclusive missions?

 

#2: The previous transfer had information which said the two accounts would be merged so we'll be able to keep both our NA and SEA tanks. But this round's information states that it will recreate the account on the SEA server. Does this mean that if I transfer my NA account (2 tier X) to my current SEA account (5 tier X), it will recreate and overwrite my SEA account? It would be pretty bad if I lost everything I had on SEA for a NA account of lower value.

 

This is my worry.  I have over 30k of battles, awards and tanks in my ASIA account and the way this sounds is that the NA account will actually REPLACE what I have on ASIA.  So my understanding is that I will loose everything I currently have on ASIA.

 

Also, having just accepted a SANDBOX invite, I would loose access to that as well, but my WoWs and ,I think, WoWp accounts won't be affected.

 

So, when the time and confirmation email comes, I will cancel the transfer request.

  1. How does the transfer process work?

Transferring accounts is based on the account information you provide us in this form (INSERT LINK). Once we reach the cut-off date we have an automated tool that recreates accounts on the Asia server based off of the US account, then perma-bans the old account from the server, effectively wiping it.

 

Recreate =/= Merge

 

Migrated, yes. It means the data would be moved over, but it does not explicitly state what would happen to the existing data on the other side.

 

This thread states "recreates accounts" while another thread stated:

  • Only your World of Tanks PC account will be moved as part of the transfer. If you already have an existing account on the APAC server, we will work to merge the accounts and preserve everything possible — from tanks to Crews to equipment. Duplicate Premium tanks will be converted. We also will take into consideration Premium time, Gold, Credits, and XP balances — and combine these totals in a fair manner

 

Thus the resulting confusion by a lot of players.

 

Dunno thou, let's just wait until 23rd october, they'll tell us in detail about our account in ASIA with same email.

Why can't we stay on the NA server and have the option to select the ANZ server during prime time?  

 

I'm not keen on transferring to the ASIA server at all, I like being apart of the NA community even though my ping sits between 200-230. I also love how toxic this community is, its like CSGO with tanks.   

 

The one thing that confuses me is why would the NA server want to let people go? Wont a smaller sever pop screw with the MM more?

WILL NA ACCOUNT REPLACE SEA ACCOUNT OR WILL ACCOUNTS BE MERGED.

 

Previously we have been told that accounts will be merged but it is not clear from the post above.

So we get a second transfer to SEA but still no word on EU transfers?

I think this is the third actually.  Back at the end of 2012, when I transferred, another some time ago since 2012 and now this one.

Well...I was super hyped about this...now I'm pretty meh about the whole thing.  If you had just told us there was a server transfer I would have been happy with that.  But we had emails and such telling us about the merging of accounts that would occur, and then I was really pumped.  Now that's not what's happening?  What went wrong?  Did someone just knock this up without knowing whether it was possible, or have you decided to just not do it.  Either way it's not a good look, and I'm just left thinking why would you do that?  Seriously, why?

It is done for the good of the players in Oceania who in the game play on other servers.

 

  But for the rest it is to cross the sea, to reach Australia and to burn the ships.

Similar to the doctrine of some ancient conquests, late to repent, without riots and without return.

 

There should be a trial time (even for Australians and New Zealanders).

Launch event in Sydney. If you have comments about this, positive or negative, and want to direct it to the Aussie staff (They actually are Aussies, I've met them), show up on 1 Nov. https://worldoftanks...u-server-nov-1/

Hey guys, just got some of your questions answered directly:

Q: If I already have an APAC account, will it be replaced by my NA account coming over?
A: No - you will have to pick a new e-mail to use for your incoming account, but it will be a brand new copy of your current NA account.  (No merge will occur)

Q: If the ANZ Server is just a shard, why can't I stay on NA server?
A: Because the server architecture is tied to the APAC Server, if you want to play on the ANZ Shard you must be on the APAC Server.

Q: Will my World of Warplanes Account be affected?
A: No, your Wargaming NA account will still exist and be free to log in to World of Warplanes on the NA Server.

Pretty weak that after 6.5 years, server roaming is still not a thing.

Isn't it also against the rules to have multiple accounts on one server? Plus, it'll be a huge hassle trying to tell all the guys I talked to about a clan that my IGN is different and my 14k battles on my Asia account+the T25 Pilot and T-34-85M I spent valuable time grinding for are basically wasted.

Question for Wargaming...

I have created an account on the SEA Server with the same In_Game_Name used on the NA Server - in order to claim it before anyone else.

How to I delete the SEA account so that the In_Game_Name becomes available to be used by the Transfer - I want to keep the In_Game_Name I am already using on the NA Server.

I do not care about the Email_Adress.

We are still working on the EU transfer, but as promised we are doing the APAC transfer first. It took a little longer than we had hoped, but once we confirmed the Australian server, we had to ensure we delivered on our first promise to ANZ players to offer them to a lower latency solution. We will keep on the job for the folks who wish to transfer to EU and have more info at a later date.

The previous information is outdated as a different process is being implemented, no merge will occur.

It should only be an issue if someone is using the alt account to circumvent a ban on the main.  Those tanks will remain on the account they were earned on.

Is this for only a short time or will be it an option on down the road for those who didn't transfer right away or those waiting to transfer later should they physically move from the states to Australia or New Zealand?

This is the window, other opportunities may come up in the future but we are concerned with this one currently.

Your nickname/account on the APAC server would be the domain of APAC Support, so you will need to contact them and explain the situation.

Coming Soon on Nov 1: World of Tanks Australian Periphery Server

Textually says :

 

" For those who have accounts on the North American server, Wargaming will be allowing people to register

for their accounts to be transferred over from October 17 – 22. "

 

Between today (Tuesday 17) and until Sunday 21.
Why so little time so over the announcement date?
