So I work during high server population. 

The only time I can play on my work days, 7am to 1 pm cst...

WG says no to battle of beasts and stay out of rank!!!

We don't want 2nd and 3rd shift players playing.

I bet WG wanted to keep that a secret, and you spilled the beans.  I mean they worked hard on that whole cover story of only offering certain game modes at peak hours as not to interfere with the other regular game modes.  Oh, well.  The cat's out of the bag now.

I work 2 jobs, 1 from mon/fri, 1 from sat sometime casual sun. my 3rd job is a father to 2 kids, so afterschool - homework time, house duties, put kids to sleep. Morning breakfast, waking the kids, preparing for schooling

Australia is 15 hrs ahead of USA

when you guys sleeping, that when I can play. When I can play, we have WIP ships, different modes of the game, some events going on, sometime when I can play, I cant even play because my son want to "help daddy" sinking red ships, and you can guess the outcome of that battle ....

so, I have to find a solution to it, and pick and choose depend on the time available for which I can play ....... so yeah.

They don't want Aussies or Kiwis playing either..... our evenings are when NA is closed for business, apparently we are not good enough for ranked/BotB etc
They really need to sort out the dumb hour closedown - do other servers get it too?
Could we play on a different server when they close NA? Asking for a friend...

I dislike not being able to wake up on the weekend and have access to those modes before lunch time nearly.

On a different but related issue, a lot of west coast people have been begging for better clan battle times for a very, very long time now. WG isn't gonna budge with time related stuff, their data says the time window they have is the best and they aren't gonna change it.

Nope they wont change it neither.

If you are on the east coast days gone already, If you are on the west coast its too early yet. Waiting on east coast and vice versa.

A true online game is 24/7 to all who show up at any time. What WG is trying to do is save money by gating everything behind appointments. It reduces it's value and utility too much. Essentially shooting itself in the foot.

 

Crypus might be all sleepy after dinner at sunset and go to bed. We Americans are just getting rolling around the clock.

I've pretty much stopped playing lately since most of the game modes aren't available when I can play.

Wouldn't mind paying more taxes if we actually got something for it.  Here, paying taxes is just throwing money into a dumpster.

You guys are (not unreasonably) expected to join the SEA server in the first instance, for geographic reasons. If you join NA, you take all that comes with it.

Do you think that this might have something to do with when certain game types are available? image.thumb.png.501420a4366af47deb52f50d9abca69c.png

Yea, alas for night shift captains, server pop is too low to support decent MM for Ranked.

Well, if you think about. You would have a higher turn out when the game modes are "open" because before then players don't log in since they know they cannot play their game modes. Sleeping hours aside, it would be interesting if they opened it up from 0600 - 0000 hours.

Since the WOWS NA servers are in Chicago, I'd say Central Time.

I know your pain, OP. I work for the railroad, which has me leave home for days at a time with no access to internet or phones. I tend to have little chance to play regularly so I miss events like dockyards and these container giveaways for daily logins. 

I work on call 24/7 so I can't just set aside time on days off to play. It rules me out of most clan battles or anything with time constraints. I do enjoy the game when I can find time, though!
