So this is probably the wrong place to put this... but before you judge me too harshly please consider that it took me several minutes and various wrong turns to get back here to the now defunct 'gameplay discussion' forum so I'm not planning on leaving just yet in case I never return!

I know there are many different nationalities and areas of discussion that can be organised in a multitude of ways but I am not sure these changes are for the better.  Specifically, why can't I get to the main, most used forum (i.e. gameplay discussion) straight from the forum index.  It is now hidden down 3 levels (World of Tanks official forum  → European Community  → English Speaking Community  → Forum  → General Discussion) and has been renamed - it still took me multiple clicks to get in and out of the map discussion forum which is now randomly a sub forum of this one.

Perhaps I am just a bit simple but this just seems over complicated and actually reduces ease of use rather helps with the organisation.

Does anyone agree or am I just a moany git? :smile:

EDIT: I'm going home from work now... so there is a chance I will never find this thread again :tongue:

Aye it's really awkward and pretty un-needed change imo, guess someone at WG got bored and wanted to show off their (lack of) forum accessability skills.

There is at least one very good change: There's an "expand icon" now on every thread which you can use to preview the thread. Me like that.

dude, this is just perfect. No more poorly google translated topics which makes no sense! Now they will see their country forum first and go spam useless rage there instead.

No bring on skill-based MM and this game just improved by ONE BILLION times

I have bookmarked the English forum so I can access it directly.
I don't really mind the changes so long as I could close all the subforums I never visit like Newcomers' Forum or Community Area, just like in the old layout.

Might be complains about favoring english speakers, by making their gameplay discussion the default one. I wonder if they could do then a similar thing with the MM so you would get only people who choose to play in english, rather then always speaking their own native language. This shouldnt be taken as an favoritism towards english but as an plea to find some common language to communicate with other gamers in-game.

Have a look in the feedback topic, probably more useful to post there:
