It is now possible to transfer an account to another region.  Apparently WG has semi-automated the process. 

Account Transfer to Another Region

The page implies transfers from NA to EU, CIS, SEA, but it likely works for all transfers.  Fly free little account !!

Does anyone know if that is possible?

No.  Merging is not possible.

Thanks for information.

I will not move my account then, as the NA server has a different playstyle to the ASIA server.

I will just play the both of them, depending on my mood. :-)

I was wondering if we'd see this reappear, given all that's happening with WG.

 

Interesting that they'll transfer Premium ships and Doubloons, but not purchased Premium Time.

Scratch that, they'll transfer premium time, but not subscriptions. Makes sense.

Yes, it's intended to be a semi-permanent transfer.  The article notes you can request to transfer your account again after a year.

You'd be brave heading to the ASIA server, more bots than players there.

There are a greater number of bots on the ASIA server and also people getting paid by others to play their ships to get their win rate up.

Long ago in the RTS days I heard that CVs were very popular in Asia Server.

Me:  "Ah yes, the Japanese and their fondness of carriers."

 

If you go to WoWS Stats & Numbers and compare CV Battles Played tier by tier, it seems that it's still true as Asia Server has more of them than NA by quite a bit.

NA vs Asia Battles Played examples:

XI Eagle 13k vs 30k

XI United States 11k vs 18k

:Smile_popcorn:

 

X Midway 1.1 million vs 1.5 million

X Hakuryu 624k vs 1.4 million :Smile_trollface:

X Audacious 286k vs 351k - For Tier X Midway and Hak are super popular but both servers' CV numbers for the tier drop a lot more for the other carriers, particularly the newer Nakhimov.  Regardless, you'll see that Asia plays them more.

 

VIII Lexington 1.5 million vs 2.2 million

VIII Shokaku 899k vs 2 million

VIII Kaga 450k vs 1.1 million

VIII Enterprise 365k vs 578k

VIII Chkalov 83k vs 151k

- Sexi Lexi, Shokaku, Kaga are very popular CVs over at Asia.  Outside them the numbers drop a lot more.

 

VI Ranger 1.6 million vs 1.6 million

VI Ryujo 1.1 million vs 2 million

VI Furious 669k vs 657k

VI Weser 429k vs 544k

VI Ark Royal 143k vs 193k

VI Lowenbrau 103k vs 157k

VI Feel the Bearn 17k vs 29k

For Tier VI the numbers get closer but Asia still plays them more.  Particularly Ryujo.

 

It should also be noted that long ago when the game was newer, Asia was the smallest of the 4 main servers.  In player population, NA was larger.  But Asia Server has actually grown quite a bit and its now larger than NA.

Yeah, they steadily went up after the CV Rebork.  Since about December 2019 Asia Server has had on average more players than NA.  Sources for these charts:

While I'm sure COVID-19 helped drive the numbers up for Asia Server, their population rise was already steadily going up, particularly starting September 2019, COVID didn't stat becoming a worldwide thing until 2020.

I am quite pleasantly surprised they are not charging a fee for this service.

Most MMORPGs I have dealt with in the past would have such a fee if you wanted your characters to move across different servers/realms. So I always expected WG to charge a fee as well, if they ever introduced the service.

I'm glad I was wrong....  Good stuff.

Knowing how heavily monetized the game is, yeah it's a big surprise.
