Main Points

HOW DOES THE ACCOUNT TRANSFER TAKE PLACE?
In September, in your personal account and WGC, you'll be able to initiate the transfer of your account to the EU region or confirm your desire to continue playing in the RU region with Lesta Games. You'll need to make a choice by accepting all relevant rules. Note: account transfer can take from several hours to several days in some cases.
 
WHAT HAPPENS DURING ACCOUNT TRANSFER?

Account transfer to the EU region (Wargaming)

During the transfer, a new account is created in the EU region, to which your progress in all projects will be moved (for example, if you have progress in World of Tanks and World of Warships, it will be transferred in both projects). You cannot transfer the progress of only one project and continue playing World of Tanks in the EU region and World of Warships in the RU region. The new account gets a nickname according to the rules: if the existing nickname isn't already in use in the EU region, it will be transferred without change. If the nickname is already in use, the system will create a technical nickname that can be changed later for free. The account in all games in the CIS region will be blocked and forwarded for deletion. If you are a clan commander in World of Tanks, then a clan will be created in the EU region, and clan property from the CIS region (Treasury, Stronghold, Industrial Resource, etc.) will be transferred. The clan in the CIS region will be dissolved. If you are a clan commander in World of Warships, then a clan will be created in the EU region. If the clan name or tag is already used in the EU region, a random name and tag will be assigned to the clan, which can be changed later for free. Clan buildings and achievements will not be transferred, but you'll get back all earned oil. The clan in the CIS region will be dissolved, and its name and tag will be blocked for 30 days. Some game assets in the projects cannot be transferred to the EU region. Also, some assets will be modified in whole or in part.

Account transfer to the RU region (Lesta Games)

From the player's point of view, nothing changes except the change of the company that will continue to operate the game.

 
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF THE CHOICE WAS WRONG OR I WANT TO MAKE ANOTHER CHOICE?

Account transfer to the EU region (Wargaming)

If you mistakenly initiated the transfer of your account to the EU region, you need to stop the deletion process in your personal account and then contact player support.

Account transfer to the RU region (Lesta Games)

In your personal account, you'll have the opportunity to start transferring your account to the EU region.

 
HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION? (UPDATED 19/09/2022)
You can postpone the decision until October 12, 2022, when you'll have to make a choice; otherwise you'll not be able to continue the game. After October 12, 2022, the transfer option will remain, but you'll not be able to continue the game until a choice is made.
 
HOW LONG WILL THE ACCOUNT TRANSFER OPTION BE AVAILABLE?
At the moment, there is no deadline for transferring the account. We will definitely let you know if something changes.
 
WILL THERE BE A FORCED TRANSFER IF I'M NOT ABLE TO MAKE PAYMENTS IN THE RU REGION FROM MY COUNTRY OF LIVING?
There will be no forced account transfer. Every player makes a decision themselves where to play. However, by choosing an EU region or RU region without the possibility of using payment methods available in this region/company, the player will lose the opportunity to make purchases.
 

Account Transfer: Details

HOW MANY TIMES CAN I TRANSFER MY ACCOUNT/REQUEST A COMEBACK?
The transfer of the account can be carried out once. You can also change the decision and transfer the account back once. Attention: the time allocated for changing the initial selection is limited. A comeback from the EU region to the RU region will be available within 59 days from the date of successful transfer of the account to the EU region. And the progress accumulated after the transfer to the EU region will not be moved back to the RU region. You'll have your account unlocked in the RU region and continue playing from the point of progress that you achieved before transferring to the EU region.
 
HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE TO CHANGE THE DECISION?

Account transfer to the RU region (Lesta Games)

WILL MY PING CHANGE AFTER SWITCHING TO THE EU REGION?
This is an individual issue related to your provider and physical location. In some cases, the ping may improve, in others it may significantly worsen.

I DON'T WANT TO TRANSFER MY WORLD OF WARPLANES ACCOUNT TO THE EU. WILL YOU RETURN TO ME ALL OF THE MONEY FROM THE CIS?
Compensation for previously acquired assets on the CIS server accounts isn't provided.
 
HOW LONG WILL THE TRANSFER PROGRAM LAST?

IS IT POSSIBLE TO TRANSFER ONLY THE WOWP ACCOUNT, WITHOUT TRANSFERRING THE WOT/WOWS ACCOUNT?

IS IT POSSIBLE TO TRANSFER WORLD OF WARPLANES TO THE EU REGION, AND PLAY THE REST OF THE GAMES IN THE RU REGION?
It will be possible to return from the EU to the RU region by contacting player support. In this case, you'll have an account on the EU server, from which you can only play World of Warplanes and an account in the RU region with the rest of the Lesta Games products. In World of Warplanes, the return from the EU cluster to the CIS will technically be implemented by restoring access to the account of the CIS region with the account status as at the time of launching the transfer procedure to the EU region (i.e., the progress of the EU account of World of Warplanes will not be transferred back to the CIS). It will be possible to cancel the request to delete the account of the CIS region within 59 days from the date of completion of its transfer to the EU region.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE CLANS?
I ASK YOU TO CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITY OF TRANSFERRING THE CLAN ENTIRELY WITH ALL PARTICIPANTS
The transfer of an entire clan isn't planned. Each player should make the decision to transfer their account personally and start the process on the appropriate page.
 
IF THE CLAN ISN'T TRANSFERRED, WILL THERE BE COMPENSATION FOR THE CREATION OF THE CLAN (I.E., I PAID FOR THE CREATION OF THE CLAN, BUT THE CLAN WILL REMAIN IN THE CIS AND DISAPPEAR)?
The transfer of clans is planned in the same way as within the other projects. In case of force majeure, contact player support to consider the possibility of compensation for the creation of the clan.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE CIS ACCOUNT DATA AFTER DECEMBER 13? WILL IT BE SAVED FOR LATER EVENTUALITIES (E.G., WORLD OF WARPLANES 3.0), OR WILL IT BE ERASED?
A backup copy of the account data will be saved for a while. According to the requirements for the protection of personal data, this information will be deleted after the allotted time.
 
I HAVE AN ACCOUNT REGISTERED ON THE EUROPEAN TANK SERVER WITH THE SAME NICKNAME AND THE SAME EMAIL ADDRESS AS THE AIRPLANE AND TANK ACCOUNTS ON THE CIS SERVER. COULD THERE BE PROBLEMS WHEN TRANSFERRING?
I HAVEN'T USED THE EUROPEAN ACCOUNT FOR A LONG TIME, AND THERE IS ALMOST NOTHING CONTAINED THERE. CAN I DELETE IT?
If the user names match, the name of the account transferred from the CIS will be changed. If the email addresses match, you'll be prompted to use a different address for the transferred account.
