Server Transfers – What’s the Fucking Holdup?

Well, folks, here we go again with Wargaming’s bullshit.

Now, this whole fucking ball of wax began back when Wargaming NA announced that they were going to merge the East and West servers together. They were doing this, of course, because they had lost so many players due to their complete ineptitude that they could no longer afford to run two servers.

This of course instantly brought up the topic of ping and packet loss. I mean, after all, we ALL had suffered from packet loss due to their cheap ass data plans even with two servers, one on either side of the United States, so now that it’s going to be only one in Chicago, how bad is that going to be?

Well, turns out it’s pretty fucking bad for a lot of people. Namely, the Australians, New Zealanders and South Africans.

Why them?

Well, they are sort of the red-headed step children of the internet world. For some stupid reason, these “billion dollar” asshats can’t afford to create a server just for them to use, so they have the choice of either the South East Asia server (where nobody speaks English), the European Server (that has atrocious ping for them) or at the time the U.S. West or East Servers.

So many of them signed up on the West server. The ping was bearable and they had a primarily English speaking game population…until recently that is when most everybody has quit and left it all to the Argentinians and Brazilians.

But I digress…

So when Warfailing announced the merge, they also announced they were working on ways to transfer those people over to EU or SEA.

Working on. Like it’s some sort of rocket fucking science or voodoo that requires the sacrifice of a live chicken among other things. They’ve done it before and had no issues at all. Remember when they offered every other week for three months to move people over to the SEA server when they opened it up and got it going? They needed numbers on that server back then, so they had NO PROBLEM AT ALL transferring people.

But now, all of a sudden, it’s rocket fucking science and they just can’t pull it off.

Here’s the announcement. Here’s the relative part:

Will accounts be transferred or duplicated to another server?
We will share more information soon on our transfer programs, but all transfers will be one-way to the destination and no account duplication. Your entire account will be moved as part of the transfer and this is aone way ticket. You may only return to North American servers through starting an entirely new account.

Right now our focus is on our players who are closer to a regional server that they are currently not playing on.  For example players in Australia or New Zealand, they may want to transfer to the APAC server. Or players who live in EU countries, they might want to join the much closer EU server.

Now, that’s cool of them, isn’t it? But right above that is this little tidbit:

I received an e-mail about transferring?
If you are geographically local to the Asia region you may have received an e-mail offering you the opportunity to transfer.  You have until August 29th to respond and initiate the transfer process.

So, once again, they have NO PROBLEM moving people to the SEA server. At all. That’s done IMMEDIATELY.

All of that shit was August 14th, folks. Here we are in the second week of fucking November and they STILL are dragging their feet for transfers to EU.

Why?

Well, it’s simply really: They don’t want to move anybody to the EU servers.

Why?

Two reasons: First off, Wargaming employees don’t want to get fired. They’re trying desperately to save their jobs no matter who they have to throw under the fucking bus to do so.

Secondly, EU already has a lot of players that are, in fact, challenging the limited server ability Wargaming pays for. They don’t want any more people putting them in the position to where they have to open another EU Server.

That’s  why they will transfer to the SEA server so quickly: it has the lowest population other than North America. If they can keep the population numbers up, they keep the server. If they keep the server, they keep their job.

Wargaming NA and SEA are playing a shell game with accounts to keep numbers up to save their fucking jobs. That is their priority and their ONLY priority.

Everybody else, according to Wargaming NA’s staff attitude, can go fuck themselves.

It really is just that fucking simple, folks.

And they’ve sent out their employees to try to discredit anybody asking for a transfer as well, in an attempt to shut them up and shame them into silence. For instance, look at this post by Sang_Real_Templar just yesterday, 9th Novemeber.

And IMMEDIATELY he is set upon by the Wargaming Shills:

It happens every single time without fail: Try to shame a person that has a LEGITIMATE POST. Wargaming have been doing this shit for years. It’s yet another way they keep their jobs by terrorizing the populace.

You have one asshole, Devildog8, telling the OP to just create another account on the EU server. Yeah, dumbass…like he should just throw away all the money, time and effort he spent building that account because Wargaming fucking merged the servers, PROMISED HIM they would relocate him, and THEN FAILED TO DO SO.

Then you have this other fucking moron spy1309 saying the OP was spoiled for “wanting it now” and “throwing a tantrum”. HE’S MAKING A LEGITMATE POST, UNLIKE YOU, YOU STUPID FUCKING SHILL!

WANTING IT NOW ?!?!

IT’S BEEN THREE FUCKING MONTHS, YOU JACKASS!!!

This is what Wargaming North America has digressed to. This is who they are now: bully what little is left of its gaming population into simply quitting rather than doing what they promised to do MONTHS AGO and transferring them.

In the end, if these failed Wargaming North America employees had actually DONE their jobs over the last 6 years, they wouldn’t be having to lie, deceive, bully and everything else in the fucking book trying to save their jobs now.

    Doesn’t surprise me one bit. I would transfer my account as well if they’d let me. The NA Server is just pure garbage in about every single way it’s possible to be so.

    Central server screwed me over for ping.
    I might as well be on the EU as it’s within 10 msec of ping from central for me.

    AND there’s people!
    AND there’s chat moderation!

    It’s what NA was like before wg-amerika fucked it over.

    Thing 1, EVERY time I think about how much I fucking hate WG the fist thing I do is visit this site. I am like a little school girl waiting on your next post. They are always informative and to the point. Thank you!

    You’re welcome!

    In the end, we’re all in this shit together.

    It is not going to happen. What they have done instead is to open all servers to everyone. Just check when you log in to the game.

    This means now that the Russians with all of the Cheat’s and advantages will be going to the NA server to farm.

  6. Thing 1 says:

    Nope. Never happen. They’ve already said a million times that server roaming will simply never, ever happen.

    First off, no two servers have the same content. That would be HUGELY problematic and actually violate their own terms of service.

    If that wasn’t enough to fuck up the works, you have the fact that the lag from RU to US would be probably over a second the way their Mickey Mouse setup is run.

    War Thunder did server roaming from the very beginning. It works, but it’s not something World of Tanks ever wanted to do for more than one reason, not the least of which is opening up their beloved Russian servers to the outside world.

    Well, they’ll at some point have to do something sooner or later. As the NA server slowly loses population over the long haul moving forward, the Match Maker will keep taking unbalanced dumps on the remaining player population (wrecking win rates, stats, steam roller matches, losing streaks, credit earning potential, mission issues, player dissatisfaction, which then will end in loss of revenue $ etc.) all of these issues will have a combined effect of driving players away.

    All you’re left with now are your die hards, fan boys, folks who have spend a lot of money/time that check back one in a while that decide to play a few here and there etc. Or come back for a while to check out something they heard about, then leave again after a few days.

    They could help the Server Ping between the NA and the EU if they would change the routing of the pathway from here to over there, or spend some money to bring the Ping down some even over the distance. But, knowing Wargaming, I doubt that will happen?

    The NA will reach a threshold point sooner or later when it’s not effectively making any money at all, ( it could be there NOW).. No way to know without any financials to look at (but there you go, that’s Wargaming again)

    Here’s what one player posted in chat this evening even, to show you how far people are feeling:

    These are the kinds of things you see getting posted in Gen. Game Chat now. All kinds of people reporting things etc. Unhappy people/players. Yes, the game is not giving enjoyment anymore. It’s ripping people off !!! The WGNA office is shaking people down. It’s falling apart.
