Will the resulting complete western embargo disrupt WOWS? Or are there sufficient international servers?

Serious question (and serious scenario). TIA

I dont think Russia is going to war.. If they do, its the worst mistake a leader would've done since WW1 and WW2..

WOWS servers are in the US side... The only servers that are affected are servers not accessed by the general population (PTS and up). ... Its a minuscule inconvenience.

Yeah either way Russia ends up losing if it doesn't invade it will look bad and if he does it will be worse :Smile_hiding: Can they invade and occupy Ukraine sure but keeping it is another thing entirely  :fish_palm: They are saying Ukraine can be Afghanistan 2.0 for Russia :fish_book: A war to gain nothing only to pullout after ten years of loses and attrition :fish_sleep:

What I read..."If a potential WWIII breaks out, can I still play my video game?"  Sorry, I know that isn't what you meant, but the thought popped in my head and I chuckled.

And yet, WW1 and WW2 happened.  You know what they say about history.

And, look at the people in charge around the world, today.  I have more faith in the worst case scenario happening than I do that "common sense" will prevail.

Russia probably will invade. Knowing Russia's economic situation, it doesnt many sense to move all these troops and supplies like this. The logistical cost alone will force them to. Unless this is just how they plan to deploy their troops for future conflict.

Kinda makes you wonder what is actually going on that makes Russia want to spend money they don't really have.

NATO's possible expansion. Losing support of the Russian people. Distract with conflict, rally the people against an "enemy". Bolster international reputation as a legitimate military threat. Might help with economics.

Its complicated... Many factors went in to making WW1 and WW2 possible.. If Russia invades because of revisionism of history or a distorted view of history or perceived wrong doing by NATO... That is what I'm referring too specifically. It going to be the worst mistake a leader can do.

Who's throwing them out? Ukraine is almost completely encircled by Russia. Parts of Western Europe are completely neutralized by the need for Russian natural gas. The US has already shown its cards in the form of "severe economic sanctions". The only wild card is the persistence of the Ukrainians, and whether this could continue as a prolonged insurgency, but the logistical and terrain problems of Afghanistan dont apply.

WOWS is a Belarusian company based in Cyprus, it's NA servers are in America. About the only thing that sanctions against Russia would do would be to disrupt upgrades coming out of Lesta.  However, it's ludicrous to think that Russia is going to invade a country when the EU, NATO, the US, and all its other allies are opposed to it. How would they would they benefit? Do you realize why the US beat the Japanese in WWII? If you don't just look at the economies. Now, look at the combined economies of the US and its allies versus Russia.

This reminds me of an interview on late night radio long ago about geopolititcs and the Cold War with Dr Zbigniev Brzezinski. 

A caller got on the air and asked Zbiggy " If theres a nuclear war, will the EMP erase my VHS tapes?".

Most of the population in Ukraine is armed already preparing :Smile_hiding:  Not to mention that doesn't stop the U.S or European countries from helping or funding groups within Ukraine :Smile_bajan2: Also all the countries that are not in Nato that will join after said invasion :Smile_child: Russia will lose a lot more than they will gain :fish_boom:
