Wargaming have announced that they’re launching a local server for Australia and New Zealand World of Tanks players. See ya later, lag!

November 1 is the date to add to your diaries. Get ready for faster ping rates and greater connectivity for the 15 versus 15 tank combat MMO.

“A local server is the number one request from our community,” says Wargaming Australia New Zealand country manager Travis Plane, “and we are finally rolling them out on November 1, from 6pm – 12am AEDT. 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. As our player numbers grow and the matchmaking continues to improve, we plan to widen these hours and are aiming for a full-time local server in 2018.”

Wargaming know that there’s many a lapsed Aussie player due to lag issues, so they’ve put together this really rather fun ‘Get back in your tank’ recruitment vid for us…
