Hmm, that would be bad.

I like reading the Asia and NA forum from time to time.

Seems you need to log in now, the LWM posts all had permission denied.

Logging in works fine; of course, I have an NA server login, might be that Euro server accounts don't work anymore (at least, I think they used to). To be honest, I've noticed that WoWs and the WG website have gotten increasingly forgetful of my details recently (the game client only since the WGC was forced on everyone with the .exe direct-start option eliminated; coincidence?), I hope they fix it soon because if the game client logs me out due to a server hiccup and then forces me to input my details again before it'll restart, I might find I have better things to do...

@MrConway @Crysantos

Please can you confirm that it was an intentional change to the North American Forum that users from the European Forum may not even access the posts on the NA Forum. 

 

If this was the intention of the changes made then I believe that this is a retrograde step. Surely it is better to actually allow European Accounts to post on the NA Forum and vice a versa.

...Or at least view the NA forum. The wiki (available to everyone) has links to all of LittleWhiteMouse's ship reviews which are posted on the NA forums, after all; removing free NA access means noone outside of that server will be able to follow those links anymore.

this is so the usual sort of posts that are popular in NA remain in the family, sharing the hate in their private club.

I will for now assume that this is just a forum bug and not a planned change. Because the alternative is beyond scummy and idiotic.

I hope this is not permanent, but rather some glitch, cos it's beyond ret***ed to deny access without logging in. A good deal of LWM reviews are posted there.

That did not change. It was always like this on all WG forums; it’s also common practice on other games forums for obvious reasons.

Hi guys,

 

I'll check, I'm not aware of such changes (but was on vacation) and the other forums work as intended if logged out.

 

Greetings, Crysantos

Most game don't need an account in order to read the forum... For also obvious reason.

It's not a huge problem but it's a pain in the arse and unnecessary restriction.

Maybe WG has finally decided the NA forums are better off hidden from innocent eyes.

Yes it’s true, it’s not necessary, and looks more like a bug in forum than something which was intended. Anyway, creating an account takes just couple of minutes.

Just open an account on NA: read the forums and have fun doing a little F2P over on their server. Connection EU to NA is often cleaner (ping, lag) than EU to EU.

The NA forums should be visible for guests again :Smile_honoring:
