Merging the forums has been a popular demand.

 

  • NA alpha forum members are left out from EU (which is more active), RU and Asian alpha sections, and vice versa.
  • Staff have even said that they are most active on the EU forum - this is extremely frustrating for us. A common complaint is the lack of communication to players on this forum.
  • A merged forum would presumably help with this, making your playerbase feel less alienated.
  • It makes sense if we can all communicate on issues together, for the benefit of game development.

 

Please can someone recognise this is an issue, and whether there are plans to merge the forums.

This is just my opinion. I think it'll be easier for WG/CA to moderate these forums if they were divided as it is. If the forums were merged and the game takes off, there'd be tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of accounts posting threads, commenting, etc. It'll just be a headache to moderate and filter everything.

I see your point, but surely say 1,000 people on one forum with 60 moderators is just the same to manage as 330 people on each forum with 20 moderators?

This should be in the Closed Section of the forums, however, I agree with you. I wrote a long post detailing it and how it is silly that it is segregated in Alpha. I don't think it will change now though but I do want more interaction.

My bad, I thought it was ok in the general section as long as no details of the game etc are revealed. I think I read it, yes I would be content with more interaction if merging the forums isn't an option.

It's okay but talking about the things in the Closed Section isn't. :D Imagine how many people would react if they knew what we know.

WG staff (MrConway) on the EU forum replied with: "Thanks for the suggestion, this is something we can definitely look into." Fingers crossed.

The fact you had to go to the EU forums to say this just to get a response was..wow. Just wow.

Don't get your hopes up. I've asked probably a half dozen times by now.

Yeah it highlights the issue... And realistically I don't think it'll happen any time soon Ardez but perhaps at some point.

I hope that CA/WG actually at least listens to our bug reports, suggestions, and feedback even though they may not comment on them. Otherwise we may as well be wasting our time.

Feels like it at times. :/

Exactly, even the occasional post would be nice.

They have made lots of small changes of which I am almost certain was due to all the American forum feedback the community supplied them........
