Good day folks! We’d here to share an update about the Total War forums and the shift to a new platform before the end of this year.
We’ve been working with colleagues from our sister studio, Amplitude, to setup a new community discussion space on their in-house forum platform: Games2Gether (G2G)
. This offers a variety of new tools which will allow us to improve how we share information and intake feedback from new players: including a community newsfeed, a dedicated help center, and spaces where people will be able to submit feedback and ideas.
As we prepare for the launch of v1 next month, we’re announcing the transition now so you can grab any posts or text you need before these boards are archived on October 11. Here’s the current timeline of changes:
- You can continue to post here (on the current forum) until the final week of September.
- Before the end of September, we will launch the new Total War Games2Gether forum at a new web address (shared at that time).
- Shortly thereafter—likely on the same day—these forums will be switched to read only so you can continue to collect any of your old posts.
We're aiming to make this a seamless transition, ensuring you can move straight to the new platform when the current forum is locked. Then, on (or around) October 11
, the current forum will be archived—completing the move and pointing the existing link to the new G2G forum.
The Total War forums have been an important space for conversation over the years: for the Total War community to provide feedback, help each other learn and play the games, and report issues; and for CA, who use the platform to collect information and identify issues that guide the changes and decisions we make for our games. We’d like to thank our AMAZING moderators who have helped keep it a safe and constructive space to discuss the game, and to everyone who’ve contributed to the space over the years. We also can’t wait to invite in new players to join the community conversation, and to continue evolving the platforms where our community can come together to share in the love of the game.
If you’d like to see the G2G forums in action, you can visit the official Amplitude
or Company of Heroes
forums to see them in full working action! And, if you’d like to ensure that you have your forum account ready to go, be sure to sign up for a CA Account
That’s it! You’ve got plenty of time to gather any posts or information you need, but be sure to collect any posts you want to preserve before October 11 when the current forums close down. [Note that we’re sharing these dates with the understanding that they may shift, though we’ll keep people updated via edits to this post in the event that our timelines change.]
Thanks, and we’ll be back with more soon!
