    Yes that's correct, when it's open there you can also open it in full view like this:

    You can find it here: Please keep in mind that we will be updating that forum a lot as we move further. You can expect more changes & updates to modding on discord in August

    We are not forcing anyone to use discord - if you feel more comfortable using any other media paltform that we are active on, feel free to interact with us there, however Discord will be our main priority for interactions with players.

    It's important for us to be active where our audience is, and we've seen that this has shifted from the forum to Discord, which is why we've decided to make this move. While we do not "own" Discord itself, we have control over our Discord server and we take things such as dealing with scammers very seriously. Pretty much all of the scams are automatically moderated and we keep our channels clean.

    Except that is not what I said. If you want to go out and quote me, actually quote me: "You're welcome to discuss any ships in the wows channels or forum channels - right now we don't have specific class fora but we might do so in the future if it looks like there is need and want for it. We've already expanded our forum section here on discord and simply want to see now how it goes in the first few days/weeks. Every regional discord is different and tailored to the needs and wants of the community there - if we see the same here, we'll do that here too" We're not opposed to doing so, but right now we want to see the level of activity on the newly created discord forums and not to overwhelm our moderation team with a ton of new channels right away. Yes, you can access it via your browser as well! As for people's stats on Discord, every single user has their name and server displayed so it can be easily found. There are also various bots on discord that can display stat pages, such as Trackpad.

    No different from here on the forum - if you stay respectful you'll have no problems interacting there as you did here. Discord drops are currently monthly, not weekly. They are also not displayed separately from regular missions at the moment so you will find them between your other regular missions. Also moderation on discord is no different than moderation here on the forums - both of them are subject to our rules and community guidelines. As for Reddit, this is not a platform we own. As Crysantos mentioned, there is no major benefit to letting the forum stay up longer and it wont change the eventual closure of the forums. No, the devblog is not part of the forum: https://blog.worldofwarships.com

    Personally I've been a discord user for a long time and have used it as my primary medium for a while. As for others, you'll have to ask them. Our forum moderators have been given / will be given the opportunity to become discord moderators if they so wish, and the rewards they accumulated while moderating and being a privateer will of course stay - And no, the privateer program is not going away. Currently we have 5 forums (for 5 languages) and 8 Community Discords. As has been stated previously by myself and Crysantos, we've decided to shift our focus to those community discords instead of the forums here. And our intention is not to "get rid of" the people active on the forum here. We encourage you to use any of our other community platforms such as Discord, Twitch, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, Youtube, Reddit etc. to stay in touch and stay in the community. Discord isn't the forum. You're right. And discord can't replace the forum 1:1 either, but we've decided to go with the time and go to where we've seen our audience grow and be more active.

    Hey! We've already changed the layout of our forum section on discord as such: As you can see, you can see the forum channel itself as well as posts that you are active in. As for the forum channels themselves it looks like this, and you are able to filter them easily using tags: Fair seas captain! ~Sera

    Considering it can handle channels with millions of messages, yes!

    This doesn't pertain to all of our staff members - There's a pinned message saying you're welcome to ping me. In any case we'll look at this rule and see if it needs updating - the main reason we made this rule is to avoid staff members being needlessly pinged. However with this shift to discord as one of our main this is something we'll certainly take a look at as Crysantos just posted. Fair seas captain! ~Sera

    I encourage you to check out discord new forum feature which will work to serve the same purpose it did here on the web forum, as well as dedicated update and pts feedback forum threads on discord where we can easily collect your feedback. Discord also offers a more direct and quick form of communication in regular channels while maintaining the option to keep forum-style longer form content. If you have any suggestions on how we can make your interactions on discord more pleasant and how we can make this transition easier, feel free to let me know! the biggest reason is that generally people have moved away from the forum and have started using other platforms (Mostly discord in this case). We would rather focus our efforts on our official discord servers that have been steadily growing and are a place of more direct engagement. This is a decision that was not made lightly and one that was considered for a very long time before we decided that this was the right way to move forward. It is certainly not an easy decision for us to make, but we believe it is the right one; to shift our focus to other platforms. I think the new forum feature on discord lends itself quite well to this. I've certainly enjoyed it so far. We're open to suggestions on this front :)
  12. Hey, I understand. Like I said the reason rewards are being split so much right now is because we're testing the system of automated reward deliveries from PTS. Once we're sure that the system works fine, we can start making things more optimized and hopefully work towards delivering all the rewards instantly Fair seas captain! ~Sera
  13. Yes, right now the rewards are still being sent out in waves, and not all at once. There are still some rewards pending. And once we're sure the feature works we'll try to make things easier for you so that you can better keep track which rewards did and didnt arrive yet Fair seas captain! ~Sera
  14. I'm afraid such a system would not work unfortunately simply because of how PTS and rewarding works internally. Thanks! I'll keep an eye on your ticket ;)

    We are actively talking with our developers about various things, one of those is indeed shotgunning and submarines. I do want to stress the importance of feedback and the community team in that role. We are the primary point of contact for you as players and we forward your feedback to our developers, and it is taken into account when making decisions about the future of the game. However it may not be immediately visible as it takes time to implement changes. Fair seas captain! ~Sera
