What if I leave Europe?

8 posts in this topic

Hello, I (probably) going to move from Europe to the United States. Everything is cool about it, but today I just noticed something! What's happening to my WoW account? I'm currently playing on Al'Akir EU, and obviously I don't want to play on EU servers anymore from the USA. Can I ask a GM to transfer my account or something like that?

 

I'm just thinking because my MS will be quite high there.

 

I thought I could ask this here first, maybe this happened to someone else as well.

 

Thanks.

Unfortunately you are stuck.

 

I travel a lot between EU and US, and I always have my US account. You can most certainly still use it. We have a mage in our guild who lives in Norway and has two accounts, one US, and one EU.

 

You cannot transfer a character from one region to another. So you'll need to either get a US account and start fresh, or find a guild on an EU realm with raid times that fits your new schedule.

 

I may be moving to Germany at some point in the future, so I'll have the opposite problem as you!

It's not even about the raid times, but the lag. I usually have like 30-40ms, but from US, it's like 100ms if I'm correct and as a healer, it would be quite frustrating.

Yea, you're going to have to buy all the expansions again and start new.  Sucks =/

when it come right down to it. im sorry but there nothing you can do.100ms is not bad and the internet for the most part is better and faster here. i dont lag at 100 if you go up to 1 k ms then you lag. but not really at all at 100

I know people that play from South Africa with 180-350ms latency since Blizzard doesn't want to make a South African server. In PvE that's not much of a problem for them, but in PvP every millisecond counts.

 

You could always call Blizzard if they can arrange something . . .
