I woke up late and already a lot of 0.9.9 news is out. But upon reading the blog, I found this in the bottom part:


Technical improvements:

With the release of Update 0.9.9, players will be able to play on all servers of World of Warships using one client, without the need to have a separate copy for each region.

The game server will be determined by the current account selected in the Wargaming Game Center.


 

Does this mean we can not choose our server anymore and if you are a new player, the client will choos the server for you wether you like it or not?
Or
Does this mean there is no region lock?
Or
Does this mean they have a copy of all our data / account and pated it in all region?
Or
Does this mean it is only for WGC and not the game itself?

 


Also, update 0.9.8 is 8 GB.
Better make time and room for download.

Nah I think it's just giving access to play on other servers without having to have multiple clients in your hard drives. Aslain's mod has a thing for that since ages ago.

Different accounts will be needed.

Ah. Didn't know Aslain has that mod.

What I have read was some editing in some .xml file. That 2 years ago. :fish_book:

 

Falls short of copy paste your data to other servers while only using one account.

But the need of a new and different account and you're back at square one if you decide to try NA and EU is really disappointing.

The only good here is the disk space savings on your hard disk.

Yup you have to read this kind of announcement more carefully because WG is not that great at making clear statements.

The last bit that says "The game server will be determined by the current account selected in the WGC" is the only clue that says it all.

Example:

Before you run the game from the WGC, you are always prompted to login first. If the account is a SEA account, the game will load the SEA server. If the account is a NA account, the game will load the NA server.

And because there is nothing that says anything about cross-server play, we can safely assume that we need to use different account to play on the other servers 

That should be the detailed explanation of this announcement.

Should have been a one client download from the start ( won't get into 'we should have one account and choose what server we would like to play' on here!)!

It could have been done when WGC was made compulsory as well which to sweeten the deal for those of us still skeptical of it.

Editing the .xml was one of the ways to do it as well ( I would say Aslain's does it for you).

I used to just edit the .xml myself the first year,but after WG 'wisely' started to have slightly different clients for special occasions' like the NA 2015 Halloween event a lot of us just started running  seperate installs for each of the other servers we had an account on.

The file was changed a couple of years ago for region addition,but as I was running the separate installs I didn't bother to learn what needed to be changed in the new one.

Ok it will really be as I said. No cross-server play, or account transfer. Just all in one client.

It's a nice change for sure.

Falls short of cross server play but still a nice change.

The savings in HDD space.

 

I just hope WG would allow account sync in the future.

Would be nice to take what you have with you. Especially ships and past contents that are no longer on sale.
