Whats with the North American discrimination WarGaming? This is a "North American" Server and you don't even offer our countries! I don't care if there's a good reason why there not offered. I should be able to pick my country.. its a pride thing!

The USA didn't qualify, hence why it's not in the roster any more than China.

Yeah it's pretty embarrassing, but we didn't make it into the World Cup this go round.

Neither did Italy or Chile. Which is a lot more embarrassing for them.

[ interesting side note: It's my understanding that it's called "Soccer" from way back when it was Association Football and folks shortened it to 'soccer'. 'Cos they're cute like that. ]

So we can get a myriad of patches for a bunch of countries today, but they left out 2 of the biggest countries represented on the server. 

I knew they didn't like us when they renamed our special American commander to an unidentified dead body but this is taking it to a whole new level. It's like we don't exist in that special group of countries they have decided to honor. 

 

Spoiler

BTW, I'm cheering for Iceland

If we had qualified then we would have a patch. WG didn’t just randomly select certain teams they wanted to make patches for. It’s patches of teams that are participating in the World Cup.

Should actually be referred to as Football where you actually use your foot to play the ball. It really boils my piss that they call it Soccer.  Perhaps American Football should be renamed American Handball :cap_haloween:

... and you're right mate, Italy and Chile should certainly be more embarassed by the fact they didn't qualify! The US team are getting a lot better though :)

I'm assuming the U.S. is one of those. Which is the other of the biggest countries represented on the N.A. server? (in all seriousness: I'm very interested to know who else we're playing alongside in this game.)

It doesn't make sense because it was another topic and radar merged them. I looked and there was no other thread when I posted. I was referring to US and Canada, which is what my thread title said.

 They could have added USA/Canada despite failing to qualify. It's our server after all. Kinda disrespectful... Maybe add a special USA patch in the premium shop??

Speaking of being cute, Who called it Soccar?  Anyways..

We care about every sport we play, were just not that interested in "soccer" because it just so happens to coincide with another sport we play.. its called FOOTBALL! :cap_viking:

So actually Football in the U.S. should be called "Handie" to be consistent with "Soccer"

I was disappointed that Regina was removed as a possibility to host some games. Would have been nice. I may make the 7 hour drive to Edmonton.
