Nee! Nooit nie. Hoekom....ons hou van engels. One another note, suppose that depends on how big the dutch playerbase is? Have you contacted one of of the community managers? @MrConway

It's funny, the Dutch and national subforums, akin to a Dutch language option in games. We used to never have one because the Dutch get to be proficient at English because of school and everything getting subbed in the media. Nowadays all children television gets dubbed, seriously hampering learning English from a young age. I don't like it. 

 

Just random muzing, mind you. Nothing to do with the reason of the OP to ask for a Dutch forum. Just reminded me of the fact.

When you think they've closed a couple (turkish & Spanish) subforums due to low number of forum goers,in 2018, 

I don't see they are opening a new one unless there is a flood of dutch players coming into game and forum with ever increasing numbers.

I only know one word of Dutch. Pretty sure I'd get banned if I used it on the Dutch forum. :Smile_Default:

Just call them 'straatmadelief' instead of your nasty word.

 

Also, this request is discrimination of Flemish players, there's more people in the world speaking Dutch than just the Dutch :Smile-_tongue:

Don't forget the Pennsylvania Dutch... though they might actually be Germans. Confusing this is.:Smile_unsure:

The children shows feel like watching German television. Worst is that everyone has the same voices, because hiring more than ten voice actors is apparently impossible. So many brilliant wordjokes are lost in translations.

 

Subs were a lot better, but hey, managers these days think everything should be simplistic and all.

Did someone claim otherwise? She's historically more Flemish than the rest of us too.

You hitting the nail right on the head! It's always so bad when Eddy Murphy, Arnold Swartz, Dwayne Johnson and Jacky Chan sound exactly the same in a language that heavily uses dubs.

Can we please have a section for the Dutch on the WoWS forums? :)

I think the community AND peoples language skills benefits mostly from having english only forum. I'd be all for closing all the others.

It will not happen. Dutch like to get everything cheap. 

So, unless WG makes a 50% off deal.... no flood, no sale. :Smile_coin:

 

But, just in case, learn some Dutch here:
