    If I may, I would like to share a couple of considerations regarding the matter. By coincidence, the last couple of days I've been following the world chat, taking into consideration the fact that the game is not only NPC fighting, but also interactive. You get the chance to talk with people from all over the world and this is one of the points of an international game, if I'm not mistaken. With all due respect for the people posting before me, I would like to underline the fact that the World Chat (WC - funny abbreviation for that, I might say) is 90% in other languages than English, most of the time. It's not for a couple of minutes, but it goes on and on most of the time. And I could say that Mofert pleaded repetedly for English in the world chat since I started playing, a couple of weeks ago. She only started to talk in her own language (this time, yes, for a couple of minutes) as a reaction to the fact that her kind request was ignored, to say the least. And I could say... If Mofert is the only one who pleaded for English in the world chat, this doesn't mean that she is the only one who wants to interact and understand other people's sayings. She is just the only one who reacted, but we are many who would like that, and she is somehow speaking for us.

    Maybe you would think that Robbay's claim of racism is a bit of a wrong notion in the matter. But I would say that if (and only IF) people are asking you to shut up and learn their language, or if they are still talking in a language that you don't understand on purpose, like a childish reaction of your willing to understand what's happening on an international game, then I would say it's a bit chauvinistic.

    Everybody is pleading for respect. Respect for one's language, respect for a new player, respect for an old player and so on. But how many of us are really ready to show the others the respect we are demanding?

    I would end by stating an example I gave today in world chat as well. Imagine that you go out with friends, to a club or to a picnic, and they would start to speak a language that you don't know all the time... Ignoring you. How does that feel?

    Thank you for your attention and I hope I won't be misunderstood.

    exactly it's like the world chat are only for them even tho we ask them nicely to stop or change the language
    they make whisper chat for a reason...
    world chat is not only for some guys anywhere they come from or any language they talk with
    its for everybody and dominating and spamming world chat with a language that only few people understand that would make the other players be outcasted

RESPECT if its something that doesn't concern u better zip your mouth.
      like stefan said it goes on and on and on and it does not stop until they go offline by they i mean the people in screenshoot as for the others they respect the other and just stop.
      i talk in indonesia myself too in world chat but once one or two people pm or tell me to stop i STOP bcoz i respect others

        I think thread has gone on long enough. There are no rules about what language is spoken in world chat. It is acceptable to speak in any language and it is acceptable to place people on ignore for speaking a language you don't understand.

        If people are making comments that break the terms of service, in any language, please do take a screenshot and file a ticket.
