Asia WoT server relocating from Singapore to Hong Kong

I wonder how the ping will (negatively) change. Please write new ping values in the comments below.

„We’ve been working hard over the past few weeks to relocate Asia’s peripheral server from its former site at Singapore to Hong Kong, and we’re glad to announce that it’s finally done.
With this move, we’ll now be handling all connections in a location that services the region equally.

What does this mean for me?

In truth – not much. One tiny difference is that your server choices will now be displayed as either Hong Kong or Australia, instead of the former being Singapore.
Aside from that:

  • Hong Kong shares the same timezone as Singapore, so no impact on timed events (e.g. Global Map).
  • Depending on your location and ISP, latency may become slightly higher. With that said,
    • The Australia server is still available should you wish to connect to a server nearer to your location.
    • Lesser chance of cables getting bitten by pesky sharks (we hope).

Sounds interesting. Maybe I should try it out…

Good idea! Our first Mid-Week Skillful Play Bonus missions are still available, so it’s a perfect chance for you to grab those rewards while testing your new connection.
Also, keep an eye on the portal this Friday – we’re serving up something special that’s sure to make your weekend better.
Log in now and test out that new ping!”

  1. My ping from Indonesia using 3 (three) ISP change from 50-80 ms to 90-110 ms
    Still playable but not so good

  2. My ping went from 40ms to 1ms 🙂 I guess the minority that get benefited by the server change is the players from Hong Kong.

  3. No problems here. Previous latency from SG around 40ms. Now HK around 60ms.
    WG should have given 4 weeks or at least 2 weeks notice to players prior to the server relocation. Unfortunately, those greedy bastards don’t care. I feel sorry for players that recently spent their money on premium time and unable utilize them due to the lag.
    Time to stop feeding the dogs that bites the hand that feeds them.
    Haven’t bought anything from them since the PMM issue.

  4. I guess only HK players benefits….I’m living here so don’t mind…but why fuss with this…..I had less than 50ms before the change….which is nothing….
    If WG Asia could be honest and say renting the server in HK is cheaper than SQ…..
    P.s. Another conspiracy theory is that if KZ in China won’t continue with WoT 1.0 update, there’ll be mass transfers from CN…which make HK the middle ground. But now KZ and WG has sorted out…why would moving servers to HK is still needed?

  5. Ping to SING from AUS was 70-90 with minimal lag spikes.
    Now, with limited testing 120-160 ms from AUS to HK with minimal lag spikes. Playable and larger server population.
    Interestingly with 70-90 ping to Sydney server from other state in AUS, HOWEVER I get big lag spikes with long effects, and too few players on Sydney server to effectively grind.
    HK is owned by Dragon of the East, comrade of the sleeping Bear. Good for business for them.

  6. I’m from PH, my ping was 35ms to 45ms before, now it’s 135ms to 145ms. No biggie, still playable as it should be tho.
