For the Record: Support of Chieftain’s Hatch on EU Server Discontinued
Hello everyone, I am sure many of you know and like the American server’s video series, “Chieftain’s Hatch”, where The_Chieftain, history specialist and former tanker himself, introduces various armored vehicles (last time, it was the IS-7). These videos are more detailed, longer and more accurate than Challanger’s and as such, Chieftain gained quite a fanbase and rightfully so. His videos are in English and they run with subtitles in various EU languages (Polish, Czech, German etc.), with the Russian server having its own mutation (overdubbed in Russian). Well, they DID have the subtitles, until now. The latest IS-7 Hatch came out without the EU subtitles and some guys (now I am talking about the Czech section, although I am sure he has fans in Poland, Germany and everywhere else as well) were asking, why is that. Well, it’s because WG EU is lazy as fuck as usual decided to discontinue making subtitles for the series according to WG staff (in Czech), as, and I quote, “it’s for NA server only”. As such, the IS-7 video will not recieve subtitles anymore either. Naturally, I dug into this (even before this statement) a bit. Basically, the main decision was to prefer Challenger’s format of short videos, as they apparently are watched more due to the fact they are shorter (nevermind the fact they generally don’t go beyond wikipedia extent). Oh well. English it is, I guess.
