Who gives a crap about the LATAM server.  Do you think we enjoy an automatic 160 ping added while trying to play competetively?  

 

Give the LATAM clans their own Map and make the main global map CENTRAL server for matches!!

I live in Sao Paulo, Brasil... my ping using Central server is ~160...  I have no problems with that and am not really sure I can tell any actual difference in how that plays versus when I use LATAM with a ping of 5.

Ping isn't the issue.  It's packet loss.  Central I have a 25-30ms ping.  With substantial packet loss from the Level 3 hubs.  EU test server I have 140ms ping.  Minimal packet loss, and game play is much better than on Central.

Please clarify OP.

 

Are you complaining because you're automatically getting put into LatAm?

 

Or are you saying that because of LatAm that Central Server is getting additional load increasing the ping?  And the fix for the latter is to separate the maps so Central doesn't get bogged down because of issues related to LatAm and maps?

 

Because it seems like you're suggesting the latter.

Look at the global map dude.  All the provinces are going to be on LATAM server instead of central.

what he is saying is there are more LATM server landing zones than Central, when 90% of the server is US based, thats all he is saying, the ping is irrelevant

Hey Tankers,

There was an error in the setup that had a bunch of provinces listed in LATAM that has since been corrected.  Some people may still be seeing that, a cache clear should show the map as it is now - fixed (according to 1984BigBrother).

Although king may have been a bit of an [edited]the way he said it, there’s a reason the top 10 clans are purple and not green. Competitive = good, which is why people say the S. Conq is a competitive tank and the E5 isn’t. Player stats matter even more than tank stats in competitive play because a 3k player is going to do better in an E5 than a 1k player in a S. Conq 9/10 times.

there are different tiers of competition and competitiveness to out right say if your not purple or blue your not competitive is just idiotic for him to say, that's my point dom, he looked at his stats and said there was no way he could be competitive with those stats, which just shows how clueless he is in making the statement in the first place.

Keep in mind competitive is a relative term. You can be competitive to soneone however another person or thing significantly better than you is not competitive with you. For example the defender is very competitive at tier 8 however against tier tens it is obviously not a competitive tank. The same for clans that participate in clan wars.

EVERY person and clan competing on the global map are COMPETING.  Stats earned in pub play hold NO weight on how you play in a team atmosphere *most* of the time.

 

The worst player on the PGA tour is still a competitor....  One day he will win.  You get better by doing... not by watching

What's a "Cache" and how do I clear it?
