So... that WoWP game... looks like fun. Would like to play, but getting dropped every 30 seconds or so while in battle. Kindof takes the fun out of it.

Tanks, no problem. Planes, played at most for a minute.

Q&A

Did the issue get addressed of vehicles that are rolled down a tier having their XP locked and needing to purchase the higher tier tank and retrain their crew and redo the grind through that tier again? specifically, perhaps an oversight by the developers, PRIEST XP gained at Tier 4 getting to Tier 5 is now trapped at Tier 3 requiring gold to unlock, T4 vehicle is not replaced (only unlocked) and crew is needed to be retrained. Poor player has to re-do grind up to Tier 5.
The decision was made to keep unused XP with the tank, rather than with the tier.

Midwest server 8.7?
We haven’t made any announcements about that at this time.

So Clan Wars down from the 25th to the 27th now... not the 24th-26th like it says on the main Clan Wars page??
This is correct. The Clan Wars downtime will be the 25th until the 27th. There will be Clan Wars as normal tonight.

In regards to the new west coast server, will we need to add a new IP address entry in the HOSTS files for the new server?
No, you will not need to make any changes to your HOSTS file.

How exactly does the west coast / east coast thing work? We have one account, and we simply choose which server to log into?
That is correct. Your account information will be the same between the two servers.

Will players on each cluster still be player together?
Unfortunately, no. Players must be on the same server to play together.

Im clueless when it comes to the new server thing. I pretty much play only with someone on the west coast, but I'm an east coaster myself. Does this mean I'll have to deal with playing on the west coast server and getting higher ping (or vice versa w/him and the east coast server)?
You must be on the same server as your friends to play together. You may choose whichever server you wish when you login.

May I ask why we are getting it a week later than EU and the RU servers?
This was a decision made by the developers.

You guys understand that there is a Campaign still going on and that tier 8 battles are supposed to start on the 26th of JUNE???
The campaign will be on hold during the downtime. Clan Wars will resume 00:15 PDT (03:15 EDT) on June 27 at tier 8.

So we are getting two days of CW downtime?
Yes, two days of Clan Wars downtime are planned. It will return 00:15 PDT (03:15 EDT) on June 27.

Now I'm no Brain Scientist when it comes to servers but this sounds like it is really going to screw with the player base/clans/friends that we currently enjoy. Could one of you WOT guys with specific knowledge please elaborate a bit more on this topic?
The main thing to remember is that battles will not happen between servers. This means platoon-mates must all be on the same server, company battles will only be matched with other companies on the same server, and Clan Wars matches will require all players to be on the same server. Clans and friends lists will not change. Players who have participated in the common test will be familiar with this system.

why is that the other servers know at least a week in advance when the next update comes out when we only hear for you the day before it comes out?
This was a decision made by the developers.

For the separate server will it be NA 1 and NA 2, with NA 1 being eastern and NA 2 being western? Thats how it is on EU but the have 2 servers of 100k people, not 33k.... So is it one grouping, so all play together, but get processed at the different servers maybe?
The NA1 and NA2 servers will play separately.

This couldn't wait a few days to get beyond their campaign?
The two days of downtime were planned into the original schedule of the campaign.

Will the campaign be extended by the length of time the clan war is down?
Because these downtime days were planned into the schedule, there will not be an extension. Clan Wars will run as scheduled (See Schedule).

Will things go as smoothly as the last few updates???
We certainly hope so.

One question, will CW be hosted on one cluster, or will the east coast provinces be played on the east coast server and the west coast provinces be played on the west coast server?
For Clan Wars, the server selection will be determined province under attack. Below the province name on the clan war map, you will see which server you need to be on. See Image: clanwars-cluster-selection.jpg 10.07K 562 downloads

Also, does that mean that NA players can use their accounts on either server whenever they want?
Yes, players may choose between East and West servers at their discretion.

Servers now supposed to come up at 2pm EST instead of 11am EST. Apparently they are having some difficulty setting up the new servers.

So my 30K in poorly played Priest XP are wasted now? Oh well, I'm a lousy Arty (and light) player...I'll stick to slow heavies and mediums.

Pick your friends, or your ping. Maybe my hardware upgrade issue is moot now, if everyone goes off and plays West Server.

Notice, they said that company battles are similarly divided. We've had a hard enough time already getting matches, this could suck.

Network infrastructure has come a long way. Your ping could be reasonable even if the server is on the opposite coast.

I was looking into this.

For now, do this (Windows Vista/7 instructions):

1) Start menu, type 'cmd' into the search field and press enter.
2) Type (without quotes): 'ping -4 -n 10 login-p1.worldoftanks.com' and press enter.
3) Type (without quotes): 'ping -4 -n 10 login-p2.worldoftanks.com' and press enter.
4) Record 'Packets Lost' and round trip times 'Average' and 'Maximum'.

The east coast server is login-p1. The west coast server is login-p2.

If packet loss is 0%, your average time is <100ms, and the difference between average and maximum is less than 30ms, you won't notice any lag. If it is outside those tolerances, post those numbers. I'm particularly interested in the results our Mountain Time folk offer.

For reference:

Is it just me or will splitting the 33,000 user-base between 2 servers become problematic?

Oh well, lower pings for me sometimes, and more of the same the rest of the times.



EDIT: Also updates are now incoming for me as well.
