Hey, 

excuse my bad English, but as not native english speaker, I might write something wrong, So when you find a typo feel free to keep it :-)

To topic:

I know it is not usual to transfer accounts between Locations, anyhow I don't give up as sometimes I felt punished by WG, because of a decision I made 5 years ago without any knowing of.

Don't ask me why, I downloaded the installer for NA  and was happy to play. Sometimes I did wonder why there are less player of my Country, but as I didn't play frequently I didn't care.

It took a few years to realize that NA is not only a download mirror (and trust me there are more players which did the same mistake), but I still didn't care.

But now after 5000 fights, WG punish me for this choice, as Clan Brawls are nearly impossible for me because of the time difference. Then I have a wistful feeling to play on EU.

I know that account moving is technical possible but it won't be done as it keeps someone busy for no benefit, I fully understand this.

But when I pay for it?  Could it be sometimes possible to pay for a Location movement?

Thanks in advance.

short form...

will there be a possibility to move between NA servers and one of the other regions?  I think the answer is no... but i could be wrong.  WG could make some money if they offered the ability, but i bet they won't ...

The current client allows to change from one server region to the other with ease...

So I am a bit confused with what the OP is trying to achieve ???

Is he trying to stay in one region or use both accounts ?

At the moment, WG do not have this option available. But before they did have/allow player to move their account from server to server. The only thing is that you have to continue to check with WG. Or create a totally new account on EU server.

he wants to move his game account/record from US servers to EU servers. Today you can play with him and EU people can not play with him. IF he succeeds, you will not be able to play with him, but EU people will. There are multiple "realms", servers, people from one can not play with another. NA, EU, Asia and CIS (ex-URSS). are the ones I know. Our accounts are on the NA server.

Open a support ticket, they will tell you how to do it, or tell that they can not do it.

Usually computers pick up a region that they are part of either from dvd's loaded into the drive or from the internet wherever they happen to be in the world. Changing to another region or country is not something easily done or explained here. For the most part its something thats set in stone when a new computer is built, booted and then connected to the internet. It will determine what region to use soon enough.

Regarding the Wows game, you can pick what server you want. However I think the clan server schedule is predetermined by where you are playing from.

WG need to get caught up with modern gaming and allow cross server play.  As I said in the WoT forum it's one advantage, with premium being across all 3 game modes, that one of their competitors has.

Yep, this statement a one part of it :-)  As I know there are more players like m.

Of corse a new account is always a alternative, but consider I put real money into my account. I'm not rich to waste the same amount of money for the same things I already spend.

I think everyone would have understanding for this.

I already did this, more then once. Despite I already to announce to pay for a move, support did not forward this, they close the ticket immediately as they are not responsible for discussing such a request.

Fully acknowledge, that would be one of the most achievements that game could have!

I remember this being asked on the EU community stream, the answer they gave is they offered it before; the amount of work it took versus the number of people that took the option was not worth it for WG.

Aloha,

Moving accounts from server to server is, yes possible, but VERY tedious as it is done manually. At this time we are not offering server transfers but this could occur in the future possibly.

[edited] influence is so strong on wowp reddits, say you're bored and they'll be all over you to switch games.

Thx for this clarification!
Hopefully "occur in the future possibly" did have the same meaning as "sometimes there will be world peace" :Smile_trollface:
