Primetime servers come to ANZAC tankers at last.

There’s a number of problems with playing a multiplayer game that doesn’t have servers in your local area – or at least set aside for your timezone. Lag is a big one, but the other is player count – you need a critical mass of players to make sure you’re not just waiting for the next map to fill up.

This is has long been an issue for Australian players of World of Tanks, but Wargaming’s just announced something pretty cool – a part-time ANZ server, kicking off from November 1 this year.

“A local server is the number one request from our community and we are finally rolling them out on November 1, from 6pm – 12am AEDT,” said Travis Plane, Wargaming Australia New Zealand Country Manager, in today’s announcement. “It’s a long time coming but we hope that our players and the community can see that we’re truly committed to investing in Australia and New Zealand.

So, it’s not an always-on solution, but given when I was playing, those were the hours I mostly played from, it’s a positive step. Guess I better fire my account back up!
