In a rather bizarre move on World of Tanks Console, WarGaming is shutting down the non-English community sections of it’s forum on October 26th. The reasoning behind this decision according to the original post by Ph3lan (which has now been deleted, so no screencaps):
For the past 4 years, our game has grown and evolved. Alongside the game’s growth and evolution, so has the player community. This evolution of the community has led to changes on where the discussion about the game happens. With that being said, Wargaming EU must also change in order to better communicate with its console community.
Social Media is now the focal point of the community’s discourse. New and exciting possibilities are also offered by the tools available on the Xbox and PS4 systems.
Moving forward, we will use these platforms to better interact with the community and will move away from the forums as a means of communication from the 26th of October, 2017.

Please note, that the English forums will remain open and will be used as a core tool for feedback by the development team”
While the English language forums are by far the most heavily used, the decision hasn’t sat well with the console community, regardless of language. At a point where WarGaming is removing content from the game, and failing to deliver on features announced nearly half a year ago, it seems to be another indication of WarGaming’s disconnect with the wants and needs of it’s community
But what do you guy’s think?
