Nah, I think my not-so-serious message is as effective as a serious one.

Same goes for Portuguese-speaking countries.
Doesn't mean they're desirable markets.

Yes, I think SWTOR may have to grow to world-wide phenomenon before it's worth considering.

He means that doesn't mean that they are markets where they see a large number of people paying to play. SWTOR doesn't need more free-2-play players, it needs more paying subscribers and the chances of recovering their investment for a translation for those markets are great enough for them to risk it, basically.

I mean what the definition of the word is in terms of corporate strategy, which if they have their act together follows other goals than just "what's profitable".

Plus, it would make sense to have Republic side characters speak with a Brazilian accent and the old school European Portuguese used for Empire side.
Your English abilities seem just fine, from your forum posts.

Is this a faux complaint or a real complaint?

If this were a real complaint.. I would expect it to be written in Portuguese.

Se quiseres que eu escreva em Português, também posso. Mas já que estes foruns são direcionados para um público Inglês, nāo vejo qual seria o interesse...

And it's not a complaint, just something for BioWare to take into account once the game's reach begins to widen to a more...global level.

You're right, there wouldn't be much of a point because few would understand lol (Thank you Google Translate )
