theres a good topic on the world of tanks forum calling for a global server... especially with diminishing playerbase 

just an opinion for positive constructive discussion:

isn't it about time to join the big leagues like other mmo's??? if other mmo's can, why cannot wg?

 

re latency, lag and ping: other mmo's manage this with np

steam manages this for decades already

wg can always give the option to join a multi-regional server, while also  keep the options for regional servers .. so the players can choose.

wg  have been advertising this since they commenced....

it should be easy; segregating regions and player populations is foolish , unfair, and self defeating for game growth and sustainability ...

its ridiculous that we cannot play with friends worldwide, unless you dl different regional clients for each this is so out moded and impractical ?

all players eg  from Africa who do not have a server at all would support this.

people who move and travel a lot for work or study etc. would support this

players with friends around the world would support this.

all my recruits and most friends that have tried wg have quit because it excludes some... we play mmo's on steam, no matter where, or what time zone... and the latency is actial'ly even better than the segregated wg regional server. 

wg its a globalized twentyfirst century world already

 other sustainable MMOs have used global servers or eg.  the steam platform for years already  the competition, wt, uses a cross platform server too ...)

 

the naval battles across regions shows how easy this could be 

if other MMOs can, surely wg can manage 

it seemed it would be so easy to have one client and one portfolio , and then choose the global server but keep a regional server option

I would oppose the idea, I'm afraid, for one simple reason: language. For a team game, it's really helpful if most (ideally, all) of the team can use the same language; it's unlikely that a global server would see this. Randoms are hardly a model of coordination at the best of time, and I fear it would be much worse if everyone has no idea what the rest are saying.

 

There's a cynical reason why it's less likely to happen, which has nowt to do with my preferences: money. Unfortunately, if you have separate servers, you can pitch pricing at whatever level the market will bear in each region. In WOT, for example, it used to be the case that stuff was rather cheaper on the RU server than on the US/NA ones.

You do realize other MMOs have regional servers as well?

It's an interesting idea but it wouldn't be for me, whilst my brother in law plays on the Asian server and we do chat from time to time about the game I wouldn't suddenly feel the need to division up with him. 

 

However the main reason I wouldn't be interested is because of my experience of the Russian player base on the PTS, seeing how they behave in chat and in game I just wouldn't want to engage with that regularly.
