Account Migration Asia Server (India) ⇒ EU Server World of Warships

Account Migration

Asia Server  EU Server

Greetings, Commanders from India!

If you're here, you've probably heard something about the possibility of migrating your World of Warships account from the Asia Server to the EU Server. But what exactly does account migration mean, how do you do it, and, most importantly, what are the benefits? Follow the guide and read through the answers to some of the most Frequently Asked Questions below!


Why are WG offering it?

In an effort to improve support for World of Warships players in India, we've decided to make some changes. Looking at the network infrastructure in the region, we've determined that we can offer better coverage for players in India on the EU Server, rather than the Asia Server. Therefore, we are offering the option to each and every World of Warships player in India to decide whether they'd like to remain on the Asia Server, or move to EU.
You can migrate your account between 
From:
18 September 2019: 13:00 (UTC+8)
Until:
18 October 2019 13:00 (UTC+8) 

Benefits

If you choose to migrate your account to the EU server, you stand to benefit from some bonuses. Namely:*

-Improved connection latency: In other words, you will experience reduced lag in battle due to your connection with other players in the server being of better quality. The lower the latency, the more smooth and enjoyable the battle is.

-More convenient prime times: The typical prime time for India (that is, the time of day when most people are playing battles) comes after the prime time for most of the Asia server is already over. However, the Indian prime time coincides with the beginning of the EU Server's own prime time.

-Special pricing scheme: Prices in the World of Warships Premium Shop will be adjusted for accounts from India.

Who can take part in it
