Where do you think the discord tab came from?

It still has a link to the portal under the community tab.  But that's not appropriate.  We need a clear in-game link to the forums, or else this place is dead.  This is particularly disturbing.

Looks like the the forum is on the chopping block. RIP, o7, Semper Fi, and all that Jazz.

For years there was no link.    Honestly ever since WG went for the Official Blitz Discord, I’ve been awaiting the eventual closing of the forum, or at least amalgamation of Forums by language.

Discord annoys the heck out of me.  It's great for voice chat, sucks for chat chat.

Yep. Also, the entire aspect of WG not providing personable and engaging mods and forum representatives who genuinely care to interact with players/tankers/forum members, like they used to. That was the first sign of “something is up”.

 

Then, establishing the discord site as an “alternative” choice. The reality appears to slowly be sinking in...

 

Lay the coins upon the eyes. Make the last handshake, and toss the dirt upon the box.

 

The sun, is sinking fast... :B:harp::honoring::hiding::(

I have asked Ribble this question directly, not too long ago, and the forum is not going away. 

 

I'm a fan of Discord for certain things, like clan chat and voice platooning; but the entire 5k 10k 25k 200k member discord communities with non stop chatter are just too noisy. Then you get onto some channels to try to ask for help ... and slow mode is set to anywhere from 30 to 120 seconds, so quite counter productive to actually having a quick chat about an issue. Sure it cuts down on potential spam, but it also shoots itself in the foot. 

Dedicated community staff like we used to have, I agree, is sorely missing.

The other aspect is unless you have hundreds of sub sections in a Discord Channel, it is hard to post and retain a lot of information.

     There is a lot of great information here - and while Discord is searchable - it is not as easy to navigate to certain topics as the Forums are here.

Absolutely, discord tends to be a fast flowing river of chatter ... it can be difficult to receive and give help as well, as one depends on somebody else being right there in that channel and motivated to help. At least on the forum, stuff remains quite current for several days.

If it were not for the forum I would have quit the game a long time ago.

 

I tried it and dislike the WG discord very much.

same for the discord part. Only thing that ruins it for me is the 15s slowmode thing. I complained about it and mods said changing it would change the entire system or something like that; I don't see how, but trying to talk with people with 15s pauses in between makes me not want to talk. 

 

5s would work so much better. I'm in a game's server with half the population of Blitz's server and there at least 50 a day more than Blitz's with no slowmode. A server I'm also in with 200k members has a 5s slowmode and still, they communicate more frequently than Blitz's server and chat is still readable.

I'm free from forum probation which is very nice
