Fellow tankers,

 

there is a considerable number of players who created accounts on the NA cluster and tried to arrange a transfer to the EU cluster for years now.

There have been 16 pages on the thread already.

 

http://forum.worldof...rver-transfers/

 

I am looking for someone of the EU team to also look into this to provide the EU view about transfers from the NA to the EU cluster?

 

Any help is appreciated.

If that happens then no one will play on NA so NA players who dont want to switch will be left with no players to play and will quit.

Ok maybe my first post was not detailed enough.

We speak about players who are actually in the EU region but created accounts on the NA region long time back due to

different reasons, such as not beeing redirected to the correct region when they created their accounts.

 

Such affected players can basically not participate in any competitive events due to timezone issues. That´s the point.

It's been a decade and they haven't done anything about it. I think there was one server transfer at some point, which I personally managed to miss by a week. It might be easier to just do as many have done, give up, and start over on the EU server. I did the same as apparently they had placed me in the NA region because that's where I played my last beta battles and I noticed too late. Have to just give up at some point, they're too scared of NA server dying if all the Europeans leave it.

Point is, we are talking about EU guys who simply created accounts on the wrong region. Dutch, Swedes, Germans etc.

It is about the Ping we suffer and the timezones of CW and any other tournaments or events.

I mean, no one who actually lives in the US or SA region would transfer.

Looking at that link you posted, most of the players posting have had accounts on the NA server for a good many years. None are exactly new players, so the question I have is, why didn't they move earlier when restarting on the EU server was a fairly easy option? CW and tournaments have been running for ever (well, almost for ever) so they have managed with Ping and timezones. So why now?

 

I used to work with a player who was on the NA server. He chose to play there because he had mates on Reddit that he platooned with. He refused point-blank to move servers because he was content on the NA one.

Thanks for the reply. And you exactlly hit the point. People who started an account on the "wrong" region. Bought their first premium tank, bought some premium account time and even bought more premium tanks.

Thats how the wheels got spinning. One does not easily start a new account at zero once you have spent a lot of time and cash into the game.

But the fact that some players accepted to be "trapped" on the NA server does not justifiy WG to deny those players a transfer.

WG has to understand that all those guys are happy to play the game and even would be willing to keep spending money on the game but simply not

on the NA server.

This is Wargamign we're talking about. You say server transfer, they say paid server transfer. 

Example: 

Paid server transfer

5000 gold/€20,- 
30 days "cooldown" period

 

Would you?

Why not just start a new account on EU.  Grinding is very fast and they give away premiums on a regular basis these days.

Although War Gaming have talked about this many years ago, the most recent developer comment was that this idea had been shelved by War Gaming. The developer said that NA and EU had "diverged too much". What he meant by that is pretty obvious. The specials for the last few years on NA have been far more generous than on EU. As a consequence it is easier to grind out tier X tanks and receive free or massively discounted premium tanks on the NA server than it has ever been on the EU server. Thus War Gaming believes it would give the NA accounts an unfair advantage over EU accounts.

 

NA server has always had small numbers for PC gamers (although apparently World of Tanks on consoles and hand held devices remain popular in NA). There are certain sunk costs to the NA server. The question is when it finally falls below an economic threshold will it be joined or accounts transferred to SEA, South America, or EU. Given the NA number of players fall is actually small and stable, it could be a wait of a few more years before a transfer happens.

I wonder how many players would that be. It shouldn't be much since the NA population is not big, then we talk about just a part that is located in Europe. Next question is how many of those don't have EU accounts already or maybe don’t have a reason not to just start a new account on EU (no premiums or not too many battles played on NA and with low number of tanks for instance), and then at the end - how many would actually choose to transfer. I would be surprised if the number would be larger than a thousand, or a couple of them. Not many surely.

Personally, I wouldn't mind them getting transferred. The only question to be solved would be how to arrange any content available on NA but not available on EU or obtainable under different conditions (if there are any). To be honest, I wouldn't mind them keeping the goods as well, it is WG-s problem that they have made differences between the two regions (and mind you, it is not a huge difference that would mean anything to us, it is not the Chinese who are coming and bringing their speshul tanks or anything). Also, nobody would mind more players around.

I moved to europe (years ago now), and was part of a clan requesting that WG allow us to switch our accounts from NA to EU, but nothing came of it.

 

Fast forward about 8 years, see this post and realise that it's still not an option.

 

Still, it's fun to log into my NA account at Xmas and collect all the rewards.

As a complex system analyst I  recommend as a long standing solution,transfer of your account to CIS (Russian) server,not on EU.

Due to obvious Soviet bias over the years,tension which is only now comming to pay - check and other strategic miscalculations this game by all laws of market and system behavior cant be sustaible for pleasant gameplay for to much longer outside CIS.Around 2 years ,may be less,my  guestimate..than EU follows NA. EU will ,though,not in any foreseable future be as small as NA is now, but will be unpleasant enough(about 2-3 times players NA server has today) .Maybe introduction of bots can change it.But if human against human battles are prefered,start to learn Russian.

The fact they are investing in China server proofs this indirectly,they are trying to maintain revenues elswhere for the mid term period .
