How about scrapping general chat? Make us all search our own language and be done with all the arguments please. It would end a lot of nastiness with the iriots who agreed to the eula and then ignore it. Thank you, that is all, carry on.

Are there not language specific channels already?

The fact you or anyone else for that matter even opens that sh1t house of a channel is more worrisome

That's not WG's fault.  WG has a rule of 'English only in general chat' if you don't like this rule, go to a language specific channel.  Simple.

Channels are just EDIT , a general chat that everyone can see and use it's way better . If they have time to write an article were they say that preferential mm riuned the game and that kids in africa die of hunger cause preferential mm exists i think that they have time to creare some non english channels. One for every forum community maybe .

That you have to manually reenter every channel you want to be in on every login is so bad.

It's pretty much like they don't want communities to form.

Ah fair enough, I must have been using a mod that stored my channels in the past.  In which case WG need to put in some kind of default channel or channel language drop down filter.

Opened this once about 2012 and closed it again and never went back.  I have no idea why people post on that.

It has to stay, it's basically the game's pukebucket. Imagine people would unload their nonsense into the gamechat instead...

You mean they don't do that now?

I used it to find players to platoon with for the personal missions. It was an interesting experience.  :harp:

There are, but since you manually have to search for them. Hardly anyone uses them. I never did understand why General chat is not decided by client language etc. Or via a button in the settings even vs searching for it if you want a different language. ​

The window in the garage that you must close asap if you accidentally open it or it will drain your soul slowly should you read it. Basically it’s a bunch of 12 year olds venting over bad games.

It's how I used it before i got into clans. Tbh, if you abided by a few rules, you could find decent toonmates rather easy. Only look for guys who clearly state the tier(s) they want to play & you were golden usually. Avoid folks who only want to toon with their low tier pref MM vehicle (they were usually terribly annoying to toon with somehow)

Also, if you found one, add him/her to your friendlist for easier future toonings.

 

Mind you, I was a tier-rushing noob back then. 1000 battles & I had my first T8 with glorious 41% WR to accompany it with.
