Greetings Tank Commanders,

As you may have noticed, the Asia Cluster has grown incredibly fast throughout the past year or so. Our expansions to regions like Taiwan and Japan have made it possible for people from a wide range of cultures to come together and play their favourite game.

Of course, it is no surprise that people are bound to speak in their own languages from time to time. But while we are sure that talking to friends in a local language makes for a better experience for some, we would also like to remind them that as a global community, it is important that we respect each other by speaking in a common language that all can understand.

That’s why we would like all non-Native English speakers to help by only using English in our General chat room, because it shows mutual respect for people in other countries.

However, we also want our non-native english speaking friends to feel at home. if you wish to speak in your local tongue with others from your country, we want to encourage you to do so, either by creating or joining private or public chat channels.

System notifications will also be set up to redirect you to premade channels if they are too hard to find.

At the same time, we would also like to turn towards our Native English speakers for a bit of assistance.

Yes, we know that sentences in yet another local language and rows of boxes get tiresome after a while, and it’s hard to communicate with them sometimes.

But please try to be tolerant with our friends in other countries, and they will do the same.

As long as everyone contributes in their own small manner, our chat rooms will be a great place to hang out for everyone in our community.

We at Wargaming would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the inadequacies in our chat system, and to thank all of you for the help, support and patience.

Fot this reason many of us Moderators have a Document that has some copy/paste messages informing them to use english
these messages are in both english and the language of the user, not all of us have this mind you.
For myself i have Thai, Maly, Chinese, Japanese and filipino

I was hoping that this mandate will cover the in-game chat. But.. :unsure:

the reason that it is not is because there is not way to make a different channel in a battle for non-english speakers, you just have to play nice
you would think you would be more focused on the fight and not the chat though

Correction: It's Filipino (first capital "F", not in first small letter "f"). That's noun/adjective and name.

Communication is vital in every random battle and understanding is key to success.

Too bad you posted this on the forums, otherwise people might have listened.

why chose English? When we all know English speakers are in the minority here.

So just had a Tier X Match in my ISU-152.. first 2-3 Minutes there is frantic Box-Box-Box Chatter.. usually ceases in 2-3 minutes when they are all dead.

So Lornitz's comment is crucial if we are to seeing any meaningful improvement in basic communication between team-mates.. using English.
