Default International Forum - Why is it needed?

What is the point of consolidating to the international forum if we still have countries with dedicated forums?

Some of those are very active right now, and for example in my case, i want to speak in my natal language (spanish) with my forum friends and not speak in english all the time...
I am sure that Polish, French, Italians, etc... would say the same.

.ae was merged with the international server in early 2016.

Years ago players from the UK, Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands had their own forum and community manager...so had Romania, Saudi Arabia, Russia and the US. Due to low activitiy we merged them as it did not make sense to have only (for example) 10 active users in a forum. The more players in the same forum, the higher the activity.

We were on similar topic in the US forums and my opinion did not change.

Leander is doing an amazing job here and I have absolutely no complaints against the moderation.

Still I would prefer if all the forums were merged and we had sections in different languages.

This would make communication easier and our voice as a community would be louder.

Big shout-out to German community members that come here and hang with us.

I think overall things are muvh better after the US forums were merged. Theres always something to read and write about.

One large forum for all servers/countries would be too much. Just imagine the "new posts" function. It would show a ton of posts but many not in your language or English. Moreover, the chat box would be flooded and people would start a fight that they cannot talk to friends properly. Another aspect is that one community manager with his/her team of moderators is able to moderate a forum better than several. You should be able to click on "News" to read news in your language (or English in this international forum) and not scroll down to find your language and news section.
