Dear Wargaming,

Are your servers melting again or something? The past 4 matches I've been disconnected 3 times, and had two times where the counter at the start of the battle reached 00:00 after which the game still hang for 10 seconds or so before choppily coming back to life.

edit: After about 8 disconnects in the span of an hour and various other stupid lags, hickups and hangs I've decided to got play FarCry3 for the rest of the night, at least that is a game that works.

edit2: Ran a check on the connection to the server, no problems with the line.

WG's server melting? never, must be your connection that's failing and the other 150k players that somehow all experiance the same lag and disconnections, Their server are some of the best, can handle 30 players at any one time, so they see no problem with it.

/sarcasm

another week, and how long till we get the unscheduled server maintenance 4 hours after the server crashes, WG come on, your server can;t take the influx of players at the weekend, it may have been a great server 3 years ago when you struggles to get 50k online at peak times but your making a server that struggles with that to handle 150k+ players and it just can;t take it, maybe its about time you used some of that money that you seem to like making over other things and give us a server that can take the players before this one dies, yet again.

I thought the EU server was based in london anyway? Am uk as well but we have a few players in our clan from eastern Europe, central and western Europe and they all suffer the same disconnections and major lag/ping spikes during peak times.

Usually EU servers (any games) are based in germany because it's geographically the center.

ah its in Bavaria germany according to this :- http://wiki.worldoftanks.eu/Servers

Interesting thing tho if its corrects anyway, china has the same concurrent peak users as the EU on avg, yet gets 4 clusters, while we get 1.

No, we just need more servers here instead of 1.

350k where? On RU side, where we have got 5 peripheries now. On EU we have one stand-alone server, that is now about 160-170k (capacity) and can be expanded to about 220k. After that EU2 will be required.

I advice you to just play low tiers and not to run expensive vehicles, chances are you get disconnected or your shots just miss due to lag spikes.

Currently rampaging around in my Chi-Ha, cheap to run and doesn't matter if I lose or are kicked out.

edit: Just had another disconnect when the counter before battle reached 00:00 and hung for 10 seconds again.

Really Wg.net?
In the most unfitting moments i get lag when im supposed to circle and enemy and shoot him my game freezes and after 5 secs i find myself dead or driving against a wall...
Is my Internet connection of 5000 Kbit/s not enough?
I think the EU players deserve an EU2, since there are so many stuffing your bank accounts with money.

I got sick of this too, and WG's ignorance towards EU server, so what I do is play mornings and noons, take a break afternoons and evenings and play more after midnight.
That way it works for me and no more DC/lag spikes drama.

Usually when ever I see more than 130k people online I stop playing because I know from then on it gets worse.
