What do you need to Archive that badly?

Also, if you don’t like someone. Just block them.

If you want an actual answer from a player that isn’t completely useless at the game, Discord is the place to go.

The majority of Forum/FB users are awful at the game and don’t understand the core mechanics of the game.

You’ve also missed the point and the broader context of the discussion.  There’s another post I made that is “archived” as part of this thread which you can reference in order to understand my response to Minto’s response to mine.  I am in no way disputing that intellectual conversation is available on Discord; I am broadly stating that the format makes it more difficult and/or frustrating.

It's a different platform, no different than the unofficially official subreddit(?), official twitter and facebook etc.  I don't use facebook or twitter because I don't like the platforms, but they're not a bad place to be able to reach out to more people.  I think discord replacing the forums is a bad idea, but this does not seem to be the intention (discord is a messaging service vs a forum, both exchange information but very differently, and thus work better or worse depending on the situation) or the case.  If you want to ask Minto a question, I can see why a messaging service works a little better than a thread/comments section might.  Likewise, mass messaging update info can work, but its next to impossible to collect group feedback on a messaging service, especially one like discord where it's closer to a livestream chat than a Twitter thread.

 

I did notice that despite more of the active playbase being on playstation (roughly a 60/40 split, if the websites pulling from the API are accurate), but there are substantially more xbox players on the discord than playstation (1301 vs 524).  Makes me curious about representation here on the forums or on other platforms (AFAIK discord isn't on xbox, it would compete/pull away from xbl).  No point to this just something I found interesting.

I'm on the Forum, Reddit, Twitter, Discord, Youtube and in Facebook.  When I compare those social media platforms then this forum is superior what comes to the finding information from game, new tanks and ops.  Reddit is close to this forum what comes to the discussion quality, but it's full of profanity and heavily biased by persons who got banned from the forum.   Twitter and Facebook are really in their way a bit limited for discussion and information finding, they are more suitable event information posting than constructive discussion about some game technical topic. For me Discord reminds going back in time when games have IRC channels and moderators that tried to keep discussion under control.  It failed mineable when people started to talk about different topics at the same channel.  Discord is suited best for live event's where information loses it's value when it has disappeared from your screen, not for long discussion with people that are on different time zones and in different day schedule.

Hello everyone!

 

For some time now I've been meaning to make a post here to draw attention to our Discord Community. For those of you that might not be aware, our Discord is growing and developing as the platform becomes more popular over time. I spend a lot of time over here as I find that Discord is really easy to use due to the fact that it works as an app on both my laptop, and my phone, so I have it everywhere I go. On top of that, there are options for voice chat and lots of other entertaining things like emojis, etc! So it's really easy for me to stay in touch with the community.

 

Anyhow, I'd love to see a few of you guys over there as the channel grows. I aspire that eventually, our Discord server will grow into something similar to what the World of Warships Legends team has done. To join our Discord server, all you have to do is follow this link. Then follow the instructions. If you have any questions, please reach out to me. My username there is MintoVimto#5874. 

 

All the best,

MV

 

discord its only chat like messenger. its not useful and not practical the way it is a forum with seperate topics and someone can find easy old posts and respond. so you obviously are going to close forums. to get less complainings topics. :bush:

Forum is an archive of questions people have asked (no matter how many are outdated) and a place for lengthier discussions. It is not being removed or shut down because it's an incredibly useful tool for  players seeking answers and a great place to post info such as patch notes.


Discord is for asking new questions, finding people to play with, and having live conversations about an issue of the game, playstyle, maps etc. with other experienced players (especially in competitive clan-heavy discords like the Russian one) to understand how to work around an issue or how abhorrent an update actually is (e.g. 6.0 linear tank grinding). Discord is broken up into separate channels for different topics and is mostly for people who want answers in the next few minutes instead of hours or days, and there are channels dedicated to listing server downtimes / linking WG forum posts.

You can use both or either, but Discord is more than a messenger clone - it's a platform as valid as the forums and reddit, and even more useful for those looking to find people to play with or get better at the game than the forum is.

Have you tried switching Discord to “Light Mode”??  That might make it easier to read... it might also blind you
