When I log into the NA WoT site and click 'wiki' I get transferred to the RU wiki, which is useless to me and I cannot see how to change to NA wiki (or, at least, a wiki in the English language).

 

This problem only started a couple of weeks ago. I would previously get the NA (English) wiki.

 

Can this be fixed please? or can somebody supply the wiki link for the English wiki?

Russia is secretly taking over the world. :hiding:

 

Jokes aside, if you want to view the old wiki: http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/Main_Page

Type World of Tanks Wiki into Google.

 

Alternatively: Link to the out of date English Version

The new one is still under construction, so you'll have to look elsewhere for tanks info until we get it back up.  No ETA sadly.

The Wiki is an important element of the game and needs attention.  Even an out of date version is better than nothing.  The Russian version is more up to date, has more and better information, and is a definite advantage to the Russian players while being a disadvantage to rest-of-world players.  Give it a priority and get it back online or level the field by not having one for anyone until you do.

Thank you to the couple of useful responders ('new one is still under construction' & 'Wiki is an important element of the game and needs attention').

 

I do not want a babblefish translation of a Russian page, this leads to _misinterpretation_. I do not want a link on the NA server taking me to something I cannot read, and is therefore of no value to me.

 

There are enough English speaking players, and enough income from English speaking players, that an effort (by WoT themself) to keep the English language version wiki available _and_ up to date is justified.

 

(edit) NOTE: many of the players for whom English is not their native language are also able to read and write English. The ability for people who do not natively speak Russian to read/write it is _reasonably_ of lower expectation.
