Yes, I’m bringing this up, AGAIN, because every thread about it is closed and no longer allows replies and because I want to share my recent experience with it.
So I started a new team and we are working our way up through the leagues. We ended up in a league with another team whose members don’t speak English. They are ranking 1st in the current event and can’t understand why a level 200 keeps attacking them (levels 70 and below) instead of attacking another team that is ranked in the bottom 5 in the event but has players in the 200ish level range.
Because this game does not have any translate feature (or copy and paste from chat feature) I used another device and used google translate to have a conversation with their leader in LC. Up until that point, we had been trading insults and taking shots at each other in LC.
Low and behold, once he understood what was going on and that their level 30s offered over double the points of anyone else in the league, we got on quite well and had a decent conversation, albeit full of typos due to typing a foreign language using a US keyboard and all of the autocorrect errors that occur when trying to type a different language.
So cue the morons. Yes, morons. The rest of the players in the league who also don’t understand the language of the one team…who chose to instead of trying to figure out what was being said, google translate, duh, decide to start with the insults and epithets because they don’t understand what is being said. So I can choose to report said players, for really no reason at all, or I can do what I am doing now, and placing the blame at PGs feet for not having at least a copy and paste feature for chat so you can use an outside translator, such as google translate, much less an automatic ingame translator.
This is a GLOBAL game. Many different languages are spoken ingame. It hurts players by not understanding what is going on and/or being said by other players who don’t read/write English. Maybe it is high time that something is done about the lack of translation capability ingame…
