Hey everyone!

 

If you haven't read yet, we have made the decision to close the forums and centralize our English-speaking community via reddit and Discord. (More information on this and why here.)

 

Forums will stay open until Open Beta starts. At which time forums will be fully archived (but still accessible - in a read only format).

 

As said in the article this doesn't mean we are closing the forums for ever, btu we need to work on a new format that will better suit our needs for you, our Community.

 

Please feel free to keep on using the forums until then.

 

To join our community hosted platforms click on these links: Reddit and Discord.

 

Thanks for your continued support!

Someone here doesn't understand the word "Centralize".
Or the complaints that EU and NA are split.
Or that it's really difficult to coordinate between regions.
Patch notes for Closed Beta will be very very very very long.

Big sorry it is my first negative opinion.

 

When forum will be closed you will be shot in the foot.

this si big fail and its last drop  for me..  reret money spend but i try offer this acc to some of my friends  maybe i get money back..
I may not agree with all changes becouse there is no game in world wich is perfect for everyone but this is over line..  This forum wwas good lot of topics and feedbacks + minimum troll topic etcand thy close it for no reason just becouse thy wish put alll on discord adn redit ?  I have nothing personal aginst redit but this forum is better..

Still closing down the forum in favor of a reddit is raising the bar a lot for community participation/creation. A forum is the first top for any player looking to be engaged with a game...

its a bad move. especially cause they wil keep the russian language forum open. players looking for a first stop answer will get a russian forum and or a chaotic reddit, it wil turn off people. Seriously that anyone thinks different is kinda strange... Atleast integrate it with CA's total war forum... huge let down tbh

Hey everyone,

 

I understand why this is a concern from you all, this however doesn't mean we're abandoning the forums, we are just taking the opportunity of going into Open beta to look for new solutions. in the meantime, we also want to go and communicate with the community where we can find you all in one place.

 

Unfortunately, there isn't much people coming on forums despite the constant promotion we did for our forums in our news article. 

 

Our goal here is to ensure you get more information and better communication form the devs directly. Which isn't possible with 3 different forums. While having 1 Reddit makes it easier.

 

That being said, we are here to listen to see what you guys think and how we can adjust. so forums aren't dead, just transforming and we're looking at how we can accomplish this.

I understand but if you think more ppl will come on new forum ur naive.. there will be always certain % of comunity who will never go on forum no matter what you do .. and now when you move old forum to new one you will also lose big part of old forum member.. so in best result you will staay on same numbers.. But its very unlikely.. There is about 80% chance than result of this will only drop number of ppl who are active on foru,.. Perosnaly i dotn liek redit becouse ots chaotic so i wont go there  and same on discord discord is fine coice chat but as text chanel is totaly messy

The goal isn't to get everyone in on the new forums, it's to unify the people who want to use the forums, no matter the region (apart from the Russians).

Also losing some old forum members isn't bad at all. If their interest in Arena wasn't amazing in the first place, they won't come to the new forums.
These forums are dying anyways (remember how much more active people were when we started the CBT? Or even better, the Alpha tests?) so losing a few more on top of that isn't dramatic at all.

Personally I'm against the choice of Reddit and Discord because of how unorganized they are.
Patch notes for Closed Beta will be very very very very long.

You are in closed beta, how many users in the forum did u guys expect?

Ask ur guys from wows, forum was empty in closed beta and get filled when the game was released, what is logical...

So this is the baddest idea ever!

 

And what you mean with promotion for the forum?

 

 

PS: Just be honest and say WG dont want to invest in hardware, admins and mods for the forum.

This is not for the players nor by the players.. It's by some higherstanding power that made a call 'cause forum didn't go 100% as they wanted.

 

If I'm wrong give me a ful made list over the each and every reason
