I would like to replace the playstation system with xbox for the new generation. WG says I can't transfer my game backup because sony won't let me. It was a weird answer but I wrote to sony customer service. According to them this is not true because my game data is not stored by them but by WG servers. They only give the ID, not the background. So what about this? You can also change servers a few times a year on a PC, here's why you can't do this and why they say Sony doesn't allow?

English is not my native language, but who cares? (  so do not write to me in this case )

Sony is a great lier. Wg data is stored at their servers. And wargaming ID is tied to psn id or xbox id. Do you think sony would agree that you will pay microsoft, not them, buying your premium tanks and premium account?

I think in your case the issue would actually be from Microsoft. When you buy in game goods Sony get a cut of the money you put into the game, so Sony have already had their piece of that. If you were allowed to move all of your premium tanks across Microsoft wouldn't get their piece of those products that are now being used on their platform and that's just not something that they would allow to happen, Sony would be the same going the other way. I might not be bang on with that but I'm fairly sure that I'm in the right ball park. I get that it sucks but it is what it is.

You can't share content between accounts from diferent plataforms.
You can't use a account content from PC on the XBOX or on the PlayStation or vice-versa. So, you can't use either the account content from PlayStation on the Xbox or vice-versa.

Nope you can't, i even asked if i could put my tanks data from Mash to Dialga but even that was either denied or not possible, can't remember which. I wanted to switch as Mash relies on my Brother being at Work or in Bed and Dialga i can go on most of the time.

ok i understand. if that's the case then this is my last year in the game...I'll definitely switch platforms, but I won't start the game from zero.

Well its because you have most likely got premium content on that account. You paid Sony for said content. Therefore reducing Microsofts ability to make money from you.

premium tanks aren't my biggest problem. I have some full TT lines and Merc. tanks,I will not start them again...(I'd buy my best tanks again if it was up to it) but I see this will not happen, I hope by the end of the year that it will change

But you might have used boosts or free xp to unlock tt lines. 

 

Separating out premium content would be a nightmare and nobody would get paid to do it. That is why they won't let you. Sony and microsoft have millions of transactions happen on, and through, their networks. Doing it once is unpaid work that removes future sales from them.

Thank you for the answers everyone

 

I accept that sony and microsoft will not allow the switch, but I don't understand why this is possible in Fortnite (with prem contents). If the cross platform comes true this year, I hope this changes too....

Why not keep the Xbox just for WoT?

Larger game. More say over Sony/Xbox and easier to get them to do what the developer wants.

At least for this game, they'll be exactly the same.  They'll all be in 30 fps because console decided that all platforms must have parity.  Kinda wish they'd give the new systems higher frame rates.

I know the cross platform announcement remains an illusion in the distance, but if it is to happen why switch?

 

I switched years ago to PS4 for comps, which never materialized :angry: and had to rebuild a new account. It was not so bad. Was able to avoid a lot of the mistakes I made on Xbox.

Yeah, that is never going to happen. Your gamertag is connected to your PSN ID or your Xbox ID, they will never be interchangeable.

Yeah but they should be able to buy an Xbox and create a new id there. Then transfer at least their game progression, TT tanks and crews. Once transfered it would no longer exist on Playstation.
