Nah dont see the use nor need for it.
A Dutch forumsection gives the Dutch players, who are not in a clan, a place to discuss about tanks, maps, clan wars etcetera in their own language. Currently, they have to be able to write English, and I know there are quite a few Dutchies out there, that can't write English.

Also, if people are not in a clan, they have no central place to talk about WoT. Since they are not on clanforums, and if there are on a forum with a topic about WoT, it usually does not have many people participating in said topic.

First of all, i dont care if dutch players are good or bad, in my opinion everyone is entitled to play however they like as long as they play fair.
Second, i think it is only fair to give any dutch speaking person a chance to have a forum in his own language, why are we mostly left out where others can speak in their native language?

Are we so linguistic that we dont have a right to it?  Are we so much easier satisfied with any other language that "just" english will do for us? Why are we so different?

Of all "foreign" speakers i think we adapt the most to other languages. Which is why some may think it's nonsense to choose for our "own" language.
But i also think that THAT's the reason why we should have a chance at our own language.

As for personal reasons i wouldnt care much, my english is fine enough to just tag along, german or french included. I just think it's only fair to those that have trouble at other languages, especially the youngsters among us.

Point is; Dutch players in general suck ass at WoT. If you peeps confine yourself to restricted Dutch opinions about WoT, you fok yourself. This is just how i see it. From a nationalistic point of view; eastern Europe people kinda own WoT, so hell yeah native languages if they have m as well!
Actually, we had (and have) a few clans that are doing pretty decent in clan wars.

Also, if Dutchies generally suck, then why are most rage-worthy teams made from non-Dutchies? And if there are random Dutchies ingame, they are no different from other random players. So, if Dutchies generally suck, every random player sucks.

Please keep the pro / anti Dutch discussion out guys. This topic is merely to gather votes and strengthen our request for the Wargaming.net community manager.

If Dutch players suck at WoT like you state, then why are most of them in quite good clans? And are rather decent in gaming after all?

I can tell from my own experience that most Dutch gamers are in pretty good at gaming in an overall view. In the eSport scene, Dutch gamers are most of the time great additions to their teams and organizations. ;).

Also something ironic.

P.S. If you hate  dislike the Dutch, why are you using the name "FOKKER"?

Voted YES. Always handy for some of our Dutchmen who are having trouble typing English.

Cause i use in other games, im Dutch,and pronounce it in English and do the math lol. I posted about my personal experiences, so i am biased, ofcourse. I agree with a Dutch forum, but encourage English fora cause everybody gets exposed by english in every aspect of life nowadays, especially in gaming> besides some technical aspects, english aint that hard. For the record; i voted yes, cause its a good idea as Deelicious described in his post

Wij zouden graag in onze eigen moedertaal nieuwe en bestaande leden via dit forum gedeelte aanspreken.
Niet iedereen beschikt over de capaciteit om een engelstalig bericht te posten.
Vooral deze groep moet toch een mogelijkheid krijgen om via deze weg in hun eigen vertrouwde taal te kunnen communiceren.
Zonder deze optie zouden veel mensen al kunnen kiezen om een vraag niet te posten, zelf zie ik dit als een tekortkoming.
Laat ons via deze weg in duidelijke taal communiceren met elkaar, mits dit plan uitgevoerd wordt zeker een dikke plus voor WG.

I voted Yes! Of course I want a dutch forum. There is only one counterpart in it what I see. It's that the discussion is dutch only.  There wouldn't be any participation from non-dutch speakers which could be very constructive. But hey, I like the idea, so that dutch-only speakers/writer/readers can also participate.

With always the kindest regards,

Spiderwolf

Voted Yes.
I just hope it won't go as many other fora where at a later point during the games' life a dutch section was added and most of the dutch speaking either got used to the english section (or german) and won't bother to use the new dutch part, or that the ones that can't speak/read/write english already found shelter at a 3rd party forum :)
But with a bit propaganda that could be tackled ofcourse. And for new dutch speaking players it would be a welcome surprise ofcourse :)

English might not be hard for you or for plenty of us. But in the end we might have elder people who didn't had any lessons in English, or even younger people who are still in school playing this game and are unable to explain themselves to others in English. In the end, World of Tanks is available in Dutch as an in-game language.. why not a forum like the Germans etc. ;)

(Side-note Deelicious is a she;) ).

Zou mooi zijn als ik uiteindelijk wat beter speel bij een nederlandstalige clan te komen.
