That's right. Boycott!


I have spent the good part of two years and a couple hundred dollars on this game and will not start again just because I cant get my account transferred to play with friends.

SO..


I will not be playing tanks until I have the ability to transfer my account to the SEA server.
The window to transfer accounts was ridiculous.
I want to play on the server closest to where I live with the rest of my friends.

Wargaming.net


Allow people to transfer accounts to whatever server they wis** Whenever they wis**

Who is with me?

I know I'm not the only one out there.

Post to show support!

Your boycott is retarded, they gave weeks of notice and like 2 weeks for transfer. And they did this multiple times.

I think alot of people have been caught out by this. Some people have work commitments we cant all be armchair keyboard warriors. Besides I just want the option to be able to decide which server i play on with my one account.

This doesn't really sound like an actual boycott so much as you just not being able or willing to continue playing the game at the same level as you have been on the same server as your friends...

a1d3n (if that is your real name),

The initial transfer had crap notice, I agree 100%
I almost missed out as that particular weekend I was moving house and didn't have an established network connection. One of the lads called me an let me know there was a timer on the transfer, which I was able to meet.

Lucky for me;

The second notice was a long time coming,
When it did arrive, it was also widely broadcast across the community along with many people, via mates, online friends, clans etc (again) as many were waiting for the opportunity to transfer.

I've another mate who didn't check his emails despite me sending him a txt saying "Dude, check your email, 2nd round of NA to SEA transfers are finally happening ", he forgot and ended up missing out.


Petition all you want, I suspect you've missed the boat/plane/tank?

I just don't play the game anymore, fairly boring as they don't innovate much.

I play on the US server and I still manage to destroy stuff so I am not too worried. I have a SEA account but there was only like 1000 people there. I would be interested in playing on SEA if the community there was larger. I do enjoy this game and wish World of Battleships would hurry the hell up, It will be a nice change of pace. Even if its only a visual change (ships as apposed to tanks).

Edit: Physics are awesome. I sometimes get someone pushing my slow tank up hill with their fast tank.

A couple Hundred? This crap is reason why micro-payment pay-to-win games are still around.
The model also encourages the use of intentionally slow progression through the game to entice you to purchase XP-Boost backs and whatnot.
2nd worse gaming model, IMO. My number 1 hated slot are those stupid Facebook games where you have to get 'friends' playing to allow you more options or whatever.

BladeRunner, SEA server has more than +10k players now and aboput ~130 ping.

In general though, player skill level is far less than NA :(
Prolly the reason we (PANZACS) own 37 provinces in the North East corner of Clan Wars :)

Looks like I will wait for another transfer option thing, if they have another one. I could roll on SEA but I would be giving up 4 tier 6 tank and a lot of tier 5s, not to mention premium tanks lol.

The diary of a mad tanker
Day 1

The boycott appears to be going well.
I can sense the numbers are growing day by day.
After HUGE support from the WoT community my spirits remain high.
Altho browsing the icons on the desktop, its hard knowing the world of tanks icon is just there. I will not click. I must remain strong and hold course if someone is to make a difference in these troubling non server choosing times.
Someone must be able to make a difference, i can only hope it doesn't come too late.
Until tomorrow, ill keep shelling the void of loneliness.

Cool stuff HERMITech. I just got the KV-IS, its default gun is poor at best. Now I have the first 122mm on there and it does stuff now. I am finding that in Tier 6, if you don't get a kill and loose the battle you actually loose coin per battle because of repairs and ammo. Thats no good because I don't always get a kill.
