It would be great if the game would open a chat with the language of the client by default besides the general chat.

It would make chat simply better.

Only works for languages common enough to be worth having a seperate channel in of itself though (speaking as a non native english speaker myself)

Stop being a f***ing pessimist.

World of Tanks has stupendous amounts of playeres on it's servers. They are simply not using it because it's way to annoying to keep up with the general chat that is also full of spam and people that dont speak english.

So they simply avoid the general chat and as they are still people they don't notice the designated chat of their language.

7.01. General chat: The official language of the In-Game General Chat (and all other chats that are not language-specific) is English. Players who wish to communicate in their native language are urged to do so in channels created specifically for their language.

7.02. In-Game Battle Chat: The preferred language is English, however non-English is allowed. Please be patient with players whose first language may not be your own.

Please note that certain chat channels are not available in some games.

And who the fu*k reads this "highly informative" wall of text in his free time.

And if you know people you would know that they either forget it or cant be bothered to do such things as they are told to.

True, but consider how many Polish (Poles? idk) play the game and how many of them can't or don't want to speak English. I just took Poland as an example as I'm pretty sure WoT is the national sport there but I think this would be a welcome feature for several (mostly eastern European) countries.

A distinction the OP failed to make you may have noticed. I have no problems with it being offered with nations like Poland, or others with a substancial wot population, but if they offered it for Iceland I'd bang my head against my desk, hard.

 

Last time I checked there are maybe two other people around here playing this game :P

rofl yes that would be silly. I was kind of adding to your comment I guess; it would indeed only make sense for countries with a large WoT player base, but I think it'd be quite welcome in many of those countries as it's mostly western Europeans that speak English as a second language, it seems less common in eastern Europe (which is where WoT appears to be most popular, though admittedly I have no numbers on this). Saves them getting chat-banned for not speaking English in general chat too.

 

On a sidenote, maybe you should start recruiting. You could fit the entire Icelandic playerbase in your clan and even in a platoon, which sounds pretty impressive provided you don't think about it too much. :P

I think certain MMOs did this and it would not go amiss, I highly doubt that other than English any national chatter is moderated at all so not like WG would need to employ more moderators. However it could help new players in their own language to get help easier, rather than the usual "GTFO" "English only plz" that is General chat.

 

Edit: granted that there are enough people for it, if not they are kind of out of luck.

 Or a realist. As most would just have a dead general chat then. As not everyone even uses it. And not all languages are as widespread as others, especially in this game.

 

Then again. Who uses General chat anyway to feel it's "worth" it?

As i said "chat with the language of the client by default besides the general chat".
Now: Besides is a word thats used if you want to say that two things coexist with each other at the same time.
 
And think about it. There are no downsides to a new chat, soo.... why not?
 
The effort to creat this new feature would be:
  • copy and paste the code from the clan and/or the general chat
  • edit that bit that says who is connected to the chat
  • done

 

This amount of work can be done by one dude in one day.......
