Greetings Commanders,

 

Please be aware that update 9.7 will be slightly delayed in the EU region for the following reasons:

 

  • We are hosting the Grand Finals this weekend and want everything to run smoothly.
  • Updates before a major event is not a good idea, if there is any issues this can seriously affect the event

 

We are aiming for the 28th of April as a patch date. Please note however this is date is subject to change.

Who cares about such a event like WGL finals is ? The matches are booring like hell. Only bonus codes are worth it, but like always WG doesnt care about EU. What about make one more server only for E-sports ? Ahh sorry i forgot you are making money for SerB moon base.

Thanks for the update but really who cares about the finals? Stick them on another server and let them geek away.

You don't have to care about the Grand Finals, you don't even have to like them or watch them. You just need to understand that the patch for EU is coming next week and not this week.

 

If the Grand Finals was in another other region when a patch was dropping, It would also be delayed. This is nothing new for updates when there is either a major eSports event or a regional office won't have staff available to fully monitor the patch roll out. As an example the NA region had a delayed patch recently when all the staff were at PAX and proper coverage wasn't available.

 

If we just said "Patch is delayed for a week" and left it at that, the first questions players would ask is "Why?". Now you know.

I started launching Test Server again, just to be able to fully rotate my Tanks. It drove me crazy, that WG decided to take away most of my fun with this game in spinning Tanks in Garage....

The big problem here isn't really that the patch gets delayed. We could all live with the additional days. But somehow, there is ALWAYS a reason to release the patch on the RU server on time. 

So, please explain again how it is so hard to release the patch on all servers in one week? 

 

Sorry, but the excuse of WGL finals is understandable in all regards, except the important one: Why do you keep differentiating between the regions?

Thanks for the info Ectar. 

 

p.s. Fixed a -1. In my books, informing the community of what is going on is something that should be encouraged.

My biggest issue is the lack of planning. The date for the WGL finals have been known for quite some time, yet the original release was still published. Maybe double-check before posting?

 

Other than that, I really don't care about a few days...

Better later than ever ;)

 

And maybe they find some bugs on RU server, so we get it fixed on EU server :)

 

I don't really like to play at the moment, sold my KV-1 vehicle and failed with other things. I don't have credits, and I cannot buy gold with credit card as there is problem with Premium Store, and I'm pretty sure problem is with WG way, not my credit card as I've used it many times on different places on internet.

Can you guys please link the article/forum thread you're referring to so I can double check this?  We had no publications yesterday on our portal.

It's very common for any major game with regional servers to deploy game updates on their home/largest server first.  The most obvious reason for this is because our developers along with our QA, data and server teams are all in office at those hours and can react to any issues immediately.  Also if there is any major issues they can be addressed before the other regions experience the same problems.

 

With our updates it's normally all done within a 48 hour period with updates happening midweek. You don't drop an update in the middle of the night for a server when you have no staff available to communicate with players or your server teams.

Why aren't the WGL games hosted on a separate WGL server? Then EU can be on what ever version it desires?

I'm very unhappy about the way this gets rammed down opur throats.  The hangar, tanks with advertising and so on.  And now this.  It's just crap and once again EU server is on the kaboose.
