Some of my fellow Australian Players have been informed that there is a "Technical Limitation" not allowing us to transfer to the Asian Server. 

Exactly what that "Technical Limitation" is, was not mentioned, and it seems very strange that this "Technical Limitation" doesn't seem to affect Tank Player.  I am also astounded that this "Technical Limitation" was not dealt with when developing the Asian Server.

 

Therefore, I am creating this petition to WG for allocation of some resources to this "Technical Limitation", so we can transfer like the tank guys seamlessly did.

Trying to play any plane with guns bigger than 20mmm is a nightmare with 300+ ping rate. 

 

And speaking personally, I have invested too many hours, and LOTS of $$ into this account, to just abandon it and go and start a new account on Asia.

So those of you with ping rates above 200, please support this petition, and show that there is a real need for this to happen.

 

 

Thank you :honoring:

Er, to American eyes your poll is missing something.   Is that a normal looking poll in the land of Budgie Smugglers?

World of Warplanes not having an Asia Server might be a Technical issue.

Yes they use different servers.

WOWP server is in DC

WOWT ( closest for NA )

 

Of course I could be wrong but doubt it.

I'm pretty sure the region-locked it to prevent a flood of high tier, fully specced out players from swamping the JP server and stomping the newbies out of the game.

:medal: +1

This. This is probably exactly why there aren't any transfers available for those outside of Japan (as yet). I imagine they'll make them available at some juncture, and I believe there is precedence in other WG titles for having a transfer period at some point... I just think SpiritFox is entirely correct and they're not likely to unleash a bunch of kitted out high experience and hour players onto a brand new server in a brand new region.

Edited to add: It may also be that they don't want english language primary users flooding the servers. I could be wrong there as well.

There are now 4 servers ; NA, EU, RU, ASIA ...

That has already happened ... I'm playing on that server every now & then and there are players there with planes they did not get/upgrade on that server in the short time it is up. I've seen fully specced premiums from events that never, ever ran there (and I only got to tier V so far).

They were absolutely transferred from another server(s).

Ah so! The Japanese can transfer but Aussies can't, seems like racial discrimination to me! :kamikaze:

I guess this woke thing is yet to reach Mother Russia :P

Seems like losing the war has it's benefits :hiding:

Nothing to do with racial discrimination. It just makes sense to allow the Japanese players to transfer to their home servers and region-locking it means, again as I said, there's no overwhelming flood of superpowered players. You could be a white guy in Japan and still transfer but a Japanese in NA or AU wouldn't get the transfer.

 

Not that there aren't already a bunch of superpowered NA players on the JP server - its just those madmen/women ground it the hard way.

They could just tweak the MM to not match players with over X battles with under Y battles. It would take somebody who knows the MM code 30 seconds.  Well, that is IF they have someone who still knows the MM code. It's entirely possible that they don't.

 

Regarding "technical problem prevents transfer", that's total nonsense.  Just like the total nonsense article WG put out on how bot ai skill levels work, it's propaganda.  These #RussianLogic types don't understand that people in the free world are capable of seeing through propaganda and even [gasp] evaluating things critically and thinking independently. 

 

You can take Kiev out of the Eastern Bloc, but you can't take the Eastern Bloc out of Kiev, apparently.  Of course, Victor Kislyi is Russian, regardless of where the company is headquartered or the dev studios are physically located...So, За Пу́тин! (or whatever those folks are chanting, these days).

I voted in the only option available that didnt support this. I need all those easy targets to remain on the NA server.  If they leave, that is half our population out the door.

Of course it isn't SpiritFox  ..... and just because you said so.

The point is they lied to us, telling us that it isn't possible; when it fact it is.  It's not fair on those of us who have supported this game long-term and time and money, and then be denied a transfer to a closer server with a decent ping.

 

Why don't you do this experiment:- start up your VPN, select a country to port through with 300+ ping, and see how [edited]it is to play.

I sent a PM to Blindfold nearly a week ago about this, no reply, and my message was deleted.

Unbelievable. :facepalm:
