This has been raised many times before and while many players agree that English is the preferred language for chat - as it's the closest thing we have to a universal language - it is unfair to deny those who cannot speak it the opportunity to communicate.

7. Official Language
7.01. In-Game General and Company lobby chats: The official language of the In-Game General and Company lobby chats is English only, Other languages are not welcome. Players who wish to communicate in their native language may do so in channels made specifically for their language.
7.02. In Game Battles: The preferred language is English, Non-English is tolerated. Please be tolerant of those that have difficulty speaking English.

Its there, just noone gives a damn unless forced to.

This !
Also it is within the nature of the game .
Lots of little 15 minute (max) games , no time to get to know your team-mates , no time to work through communication problems .

I suppose the only way around it is to platoon up with friends , use teamspeak .

Must say that it does not bother me in the slightest when other players use their language and not mine .
There tends to be one on the group that speaks English too , and they are often happy to help out .
In fact , the use of non English languages is probably the only thing about WOT that is MMO (if you see what I mean there?) .

So you demand other players to learn English? Why don't you learn Polish, German or whatever language you cannot understand... would be another solution to your problem...

No chance. But every time i see "siemka", "pozz", "moin" spam on in-game chat i have similar thoughts. Especialy because i'am polish, and don't know more annoying word than "siemka" - so popular among our youngsters.  Maybe we should simply ban everyone under 18 years old from chating? ;) It should solve at least half of chat problems. To bad, this won't happen too. :)

Well Gahan , I would tolerate you using your mother language , and I appreciate the effort you made to learn English .
I have long thought that the English people are lazy when it comes to learning other languages .
It's probably because so many nations do learn English , UK doesn't bother .

All I can do is offer to platoon with you , we can speak English and you can swear and call me noob in your native language all night :)
Remember we do this WOT thing for fun after all .

Cause this something like childish version of "Hi!" - perfectly normal word . But when u see this word every match - mostly from usless players - its starts to be really annoying. And about pretty, young assistant - you can also try "cześć"(hi!), "witaj"(welcome), "dzień dobry"(good morning, good day). ;)

Solution would be make in chat settings for preferable language chat channels .  And if you thick the box with English language chat. You chat in this channel only in English. And if i see somebody not complying with it, You will complain same way like complain for team damage. And after number of complains user will be banned from the chat for some time.
