Given we are all hanging for Xbox/PS4 crossplay to hit, what are the chances we'll see an Asian server to host crossplay?

 

Think about it, WG has a Sydney office which the server could be based in.  PlayStation is very popular throughout Asia and Xbox is the most popular in Australia & New Zealand.

 

An Asian server would sit nicely between the Euro server & NA server player base and provide a stable 'lag equilibrium' for both.

 

Oh, and look how popular the Asian server is on PC.

"Tank commanders in the APAC region can look forward to the World of Tanks getting even bigger on PlayStation®4. Wargaming is preparing to invite players from the ‘Asia’ server to join the fight over on our North American and European servers."

 

"

 Will the migration of the Asia server to the North American server affect ping rate for players in APAC regions?

A) Ping rate may be affected, though our extensive testing over the past weeks has not shown any noticeable impact on gameplay. We are always monitoring real world performance and player feedback, and will continue to do so following this change to ensure a quality experience for our community."

 

"

 I used to play on the ‘Asia’ server on PlayStation®4. What are the benefits of me playing World of Tanks on the ‘NA East’ server?

A) The server migration will have a positive impact on matchmaking, from shorter queues while waiting to join a match, to fairer and more balanced matches. We are excited to welcome players from APAC regions to join together with the North American World of Tanks community, creating an even larger population of commanders."

 

"

 Will there be any downtime when this change is implemented?

A) When the migration occurs players will no longer be able to log in to the ‘Asia’ server. Players currently in a game when it occurs will be able to complete their game. Once their game is complete, they will be logged out, and when they log back in they will be directed to the server with the best connection for them."
