Hi everyone. Now that holiday activities are behind us we will be disabling the US East server so players can connect to US Central and SA servers respectively. You may still see the disabled server on the dropdown menu, this will be removed when the next update drops.

RIP WOT'S future

 

Glad I didnt spend too much on this game nothing more than whats needed to get some enjoyment from it.

 

But this was predicted many times. We had 3000 players one day this week and thats a far cry from 25,000+ when the game started. We had 5000 last night, a bit better than earlier in the week but still a sign of a dwindling game.

 

At least in the USA going the way of BF1942.

I mean, the daily peak is still over 20,000...

Quicky baby's stream showed 20,000 + in Europe last night. The game still has a way to go, its not done yet but the signs and hunches predicted are showing some truth.

How does the closing of a server that was closed up until the Holidays and only opened for the holidays spell the demise of anything other than your reasoning skills?

Im just realizing it was a temporary thing via a reddit post. So yes it will just be back to status quo. But I was enjoying a 25 ping and loving it. And Im sure it will be back for the next big extravaganza. But I didn't realize the east server was a temporary plan. There was no clear obvious communication of that to the general player base. And if wg wants to clear up misunderstandings as such, then their communications could be a trifle clearer. We do know wg's communications are lacking and end up with players assuming wg are sketchy etc such as the fiasco with the 5 small premium loot boxes with fine gifts lol.

 

So I believe it was a misunderstanding on my part.

TBH I play from the UK and while the east server should give me a better ping than the central it is 20 to 30 ms higher

 

Typically:

Central = 110 to 120ms

East = 140 to 150ms

 

Both of the above are still playable but the central server seems a little more stable for me at least

Anything over 100 ping is a deal breaker for me. Its just my preference as I have other games to fall back on. Just reinstalled the original IL-2 Sturmovick 1946 with the new VP Mod thats just amazing at 40 GB. Took longer to copy the files once extracted then downloading them. Will be fine tuning Track IR later today maybe. Love to see Track IR in WOT's for mouse looking. I see a Russian mod for it in development ; but Ill keep and eye on it see how it progresses.

It's 9am on a Friday morning and there are 5,894 players online so NA is alive and well and actually THRIVING.  There has not been a primetime in months below 20,000 so your post about 5000 people is just a blatant LIE. 

 

Why do you lie on the forums?  *snip* no politics pls - CM

 

People in America don't care about tanks or WWII and have many other pursuits than Europeans or Russians (we have baseball, basketball, hockey and football so nobody cares about boring soccer) so having over 20,000 players on EVERY SINGLE NIGHT OF THE WEEK for a tank game is AMAZING and a great success for WG. 

 

P.S.  It is 9:06 AM and it's already over 6,000 at 6,113.  Since your post is all lies, please ask WG to remove it.

Haha, I play on a 250 ping. Now if some of us could be moved to EU that would be great...

Europe always goes down to ~8000 in the middle of the night (in europe) and has done so for at least 4 years.

Oof, I play on 200-250 and it's completely deal-with-able.

Seemed like a majority of players that I seen played on the east server.  Maybe I am wrong, but with the central being the only option, the gameplay and ping is unbearable.  I doubt this is anything on my end since I consistently played with 30 -50 on east, and now I am screwed with 100 to 200 on central.  Guess I will stop playing again until they fix their crap.   For some this might work out, but I got shafted on this deal.
