The Wargaming.net League is currently divided into multiple regions by server location. However, if you can overcome the difficulties related to high latency, there is nothing stopping you from joining a WGL region unrelated to your residency.
Many teams decided to change their region due to playing hours as well as other team-specific reasons. However, after carefully revising these practices we have decided to introduce some restrictions to such transfers in order to help regional teams rise to fame and fortune on their home servers.
Starting after the 2015 Grand Finals, the Regional Lock will be introduced to the WGL.
This means that teams will not be able to freely relocate around the world. The new system will oblige every team to join their own region based on their members' residency.
Season 5 will not be affected by the Regional Lock, but if your team will be affected by them in the next season, it’s time to start preparing for changing your region or modifying your roster.
More news will arrive closer to the rule coming to life and in the meantime, enjoy the WGLEU games every Monday and Thursday evening!
