Hello


my question is :

on the EU English servers we have a problem of people not speaking English and thinking it is their right not to speak English on a clearly marked ENGLISH server.


i don't mind a bit here and there but when general is spammed full with it,well its just down right disrespectful


so Bio, what are the plans to combat this problem ?

I see only 3 ways of solving this...
1) BW puts notes next to server names that says which community should concentrate on that server
2) set up new servers for specific languages
3) allow character transfer soon

Imagine if you are for example from Poland and you bought the game...and you dont speak English that well. There are no Polish servers so you pretty much have to choose English/German/French and sometimes ask in your native language.

Believe me we would like to stay with our comunity...but we dont know what servers that might be and you cant expect everyone to search forums/twitter for that info.

Hope that clarifies the view of the other side of this problem.

First till them to speak english in general and they can whisper each other in their own langauge. if they continue, just /ignore them, thats what i do anyway.

If the game is sold in a country that speaks a language different to the supported language servers, then I understand why they come to an English server. I can sympathise and Bioware needs to do something about it.

If the game isn't sold in that country and doesn't support the language then its upto the players to keep the chat in private.

While i somewhat understand problem if theres widespread spam in foreign languages i do think its really silly to start demanding action against most who might happen to use their native language

you dont loudly demand foreigners to speak english if you hear such in real world or do you?

diversity is good and should be respected not hated

My opinion is instead of ruining a servers 'official' language, they should speak on their own channel. That way both parties are happy.

Tell them to create their own channel.

Learning their language would solve the problem for you, among other benefits.

If it really disturbs you it is up to you, and not bioware to do something about it. Create your own channel or ignore them, they are paying customers and have just as much a right to inhabit this virtual world as you do. Until they have a server created for their native language just learn to deal with it.
