There are many players from countries speaking different languages on the EU servers. And after travelling to most European countries I know that English is spoken by a very large proportion of people. I do not know the percentage. But I do know that every time I spoke to someone who does not speak English there was someone nearby who did. I'm guessing the percentage is greater than 50%

 

But for those other 50% there is internet speak and I have a sneaky suspicion there are simple words that are shared. 

 

My suggested words or phrases are:

 

*edit 

*edit

 

Any others? A magic word to stop dead *edit map pinging would be great

Bot, Hax, Siema

- all rarely, if ever, used in correct context as most bots seem to answer back, serious difficulties involved in hacking the actual game server you're connected to & Siema means Hi, so shouldn't be used as prefix insult to any & all eastern europeans.

Strange that we all complain about the abusive nature of much of the ingame chat, but when an international code is suggested, all that comes up is shorthand for even more abuse (most of which is already well known to players of all nationalities)!

What ever happened to "Glhf", "Hi everyone", "Lets do this!", "Gj", "Gg", "Wp", etc, etc? Just asking.........:)

Because most of the players in WoT never achieve a good game, and very rarely do they ever play anything well.

And abusing them (sorry, I mean us) in chat encourages us to do better, does it? What a jaundiced view that is, if you  don't mind me saying!    :)

As my old boss and revered friend used to say: "If you're not part of the solution, you are part of the problem!"

Attempting to aid them, or give them any form of encouragement/advice, is normally met with insults and toxicity.

 

The vast majority of abuse comes from said players themselves.

 

So i'm not entirely sure what your point is.

Well, it's quite simple really - think about it! :)

 

Seriously though, I think you and I are playing different games. No doubt at high tiers, expectations are somewhat different, and the toxicity therefore greater when things go wrong. Haven't been there so don't have any experience of that.

Certainly, at tiers 4 to 7, I find that a friendly greeting at the start of a game seems to help cement a team and make for a more enjoyable time. Sure, toxicity exists, but not to the extent you describe - us noobs do [edited]up on a regular basis, but I for one am the first to blame myself, and apologise to the team when I've blown the chances of a win - don't know whether that forestalls any abuse, but it seems to help.

A simple "GJ" from the sidelines when someone has done well, "GL" if they are left alone against 2 or 3 enemies, or "Bad Luck" when it goes pear-shaped, are all far more productive than simply hurling abuse. A short "well played" message in garage afterwards to someone who has had an exceptional game often elicits a "Thks" or sometimes longer reply.

I happen to believe that all these things can slowly start to improve the gaming experience for all of us, but of course you may think I am living in cloud cuckoo land, and choose to disagree.  :)

Have a good day!

"Go play Barbie"

I can't say as I've had the pleasure but from the number of recommendations over the months I can only assume it's a really good alternative to WoT.

Tetris has some success too.

 

I always assume that insults come from "new" players that have still to understand the basics : not going alone among others.

 

The "gg, gj, nice" are easy to use and players are thankful, it is a good investment and has more effect than useless and poor insults.

As I said, these comments are normally met with a torrent of abuse.

I once said LOL to a Lithuanian guy and he got really mad at me. It turned out LOL in Lithuania meant "loser on line". But that was years ago, I think they've reeducated themselves by now.

I've never been replied to, in a negative way, when I've messaged another player, 'Well played'. Or something similar.

Though I have been messaged with a torrent of abuse for not doing what that particular player demanded of me.

I find it quite amusing when you are reasonable to people in chat and they get even more abusive.  It's the cool breeze that fans the flames.

I think sometimes language difficulties have something to do with that. A guy in one of my games was flaming our last remaining player from the sidelines, when he was really struggling and was sure to die. I said in chat "There is no reason to be abusive!" and he replied "Thank you, good luck, have a nice day"  - Uh? :rolleyes:

While it's usually met with thanks, I've messaged people with, "well played" or similar and been told where to go because they, don't need some tomato telling them they've had a good game. These days unless it's a sensational carry I limit myself to "gg" or "gj" at the end of battle.

Remember our chat in game?  I believe you told the entire team where to go.
