WWIIOL:Battleground Europe boasts thousands of players from all over the world, something we've always been proud of. Our Player Discussion Forums have devoted sections for many different languages: English, French, German, Spanish and many more. In our quest to keep players informed about developments and events, CRS is launching Foreign Language Community Zones. The primary goal of these new zones is to reach a wider range of potential players across Europe, Asia and the Pacific Rim. Another goal is to support and stay connected with our non-english speaking players.
Our first two zones, German and Scandinavian, made their debut last week, with the help of two long-time WWIIOL players and past Public Relations assistants, Frank "GRENI" Tiedemann and Dennis "SMOKEEYE" Moe. As our first two Community Leaders and now official CRS staff members, GRENI and SMOKEEYE have helped us design their pages and work out some of the kinks.

The new sites feature translations of popular BE articles, dev and production notes, important news and much more. Our Leaders will write their own articles and news updates about their communities as well as hosting events and promotions and generating discussion in the forums. We're hopeful that by providing players from around the world with a landing page in their own region and language, we can grow our communities and bring more and more new players into the game.
Additional zones will be launched over the coming months, appearing under the "Community" menu on the official website.
