Wuthering Waves: Which server should you play on?

It's your first big decision after launching the game!

Upon starting Wuthering Waves, your first big decision involves choosing the right server for the best gameplay experience. WuWa offers five different servers that store game data independently, with no news about the possibility of server migrations. Here are some tips to help you find the best Wuthering Waves server to play on.

How to choose the best Wuthering Waves server

SEA (closest to Singapore) TBA


The most important consideration when choosing a server is your geographical location, as it determines how much ping you'll encounter while playing the game. Your ping is expected to increase the farther you are from the server location. A higher ping will significantly dampen the gameplay experience with lag, action delays, and slow loading times. In the worst-case scenario, the game becomes completely unplayable even with perfect wifi and a decked-out device.

For example, if you're based in Italy, your best option is to stick to the Europe server for smooth gameplay. In situations where your location falls between two locales (i.e. Indonesia, which may find stability in both SEA and Asia), you'll theoretically be able to play both servers without significant ping, but I strongly suggest trying both before committing.

If you're based in India and Australia, beta players have recommended choosing the SEA server (Singapore, Philippines, Thailand) as they're within geographic proximity.


While Wuthering Waves is a single-player game, there are ways to communicate with other players, and co-op mode allows you to meet with others in-game. In a scenario where you might live in Taiwan but can only speak English, it might benefit you to opt for the SEA server, which will likely have a higher number of English speakers.

Additionally, you may want to consider where your real-life friends are playing. If you're in different locales, it will be a good idea to test different servers and find a middle ground where the ping is relatively stable for everyone. You might be able to reduce ping with the help of a VPN, but Wuthering Waves has not yet released an official statement on how VPN usage could impact the gameplay experience (especially with IRL transactions), so tread with caution.


If you have the luxury of choosing between a few servers with equal ping stability, you may want to opt for one with a timezone that aligns with your schedule. Server reset times determine when daily and weekly tasks expire, and it would be a shame to consistently miss them as they might clash with your work and sleep hours.

Additionally, timezones will determine how many players will be around while you're awake during co-op events. If you love playing with others and helping newbies through co-op, you wouldn't want to play in a server where people are most likely asleep when you're awake.

Competitive Supports & Player Volume

Another consideration you can make if you're hovering between two or more servers is the potential for getting more competitive co-op supports.

For example, the Asia server is historically known to be home to a good number of whales, which increases your chances of getting stronger carries in the early game. In my experience playing Genshin Impact and other similar gacha games, I don't believe that co-op supports are particularly impactful outside of the early game struggle. But if you're a casual player and don't intend to spend a lot of time building your units, it may help to choose the competitive Asia server over the SEA server, if given the chance.

Additionally, if player volume is a concern, you might want to stay away from servers with a smaller player base. For example, the America server is usually a lot larger than the Europe server, which makes it more lively during co-op events.
