It actually said there that you should play on realms located geographically closest to you, so... German realms. Which could be the reason I don't tend to get upset in dota when someone attempts to communicate in a 'wrong' language. Like some people might get upset when a Russian-speaking player who can speak English and queued for all 3 EU servers might not instantly know which server he is at and first attempts to communicate in Russian.
    Well, there are Russian servers. Plus, I queue US-exclusively, there's a bunch of servers closer to Russia than that

    Yeah. Pinging can't tell Leoric to stop autoattacking the goddamn creeps, or that he shouldn't be taking crit and aura at low levels. Though, of course, you can get asshats that speak English and ignore the team, anyway.

    Had a Keeper like that earlier... we had a Centy begging him for mana repeatedly, and we figured he just didn't speak English. But then, nope, he suddenly decides to start talking and it turns out he speaks English just fine, he's just an asshole.

    Was in a group of 4 portugese-speaking folk yesterday. Pretty sure I was being yelled at in a language I don't understand, the only part I understood was when they called me by the hero's name, so I'm not quite sure what they hoped to accomplish. But, we did terrible. It's zero fun to play with people you can't communicate with.

    Hence why everyone gripes about wanting some way to ensure everyone in a match shares a common language

    well, common language is not the game-saver either, you can always have a team full of feth-heads or plain noobs, to the point where no amount of shakespeare-like syllables can help you other than to insult them beautifully and poetically

    Obviously, but lack of communication can make even competent players largely useless. There's really no reason not to region lock in solo queue MM, unless they're really worried about queue times or something.

    As a random question about Dota, if I'm not mistaken in the original Dota there was a Mountain King? If so does anybody know if there's any plans to release one in Dota 2?
    I'm not sure if I'm right in my assumption, I'm just a bit of Dwarf fan .

    Zeus' in-game model was the one of Mountain King.

    I prefer those games. Verbose people who're social and talkative during the time we play. Even if we get stomped and steamrolled - It's fun. It's a social activity and you're just playing a game together, who cares if you win or not! I've had some pretty darn chill opponents who've been cool and talkative. I love those games, way more fun.

    Zeus being the king of a mountain makes perfectly logical sense though...

    zeus


    same model

    well, I try to find joy in everything, be it a good game or a pathetic defeat.
    if we win - I am happy due to the fact, and when we lose due to enemy team being better, well , it was a good game then, I've had fun during the game, and if we lose 'cause of retarded teammates who dont speak/think/see - well, I can always have some fun insulting them in a way which is both funny(for me) and grave(for them)

    tl;dr is - no matter what you do, always try to find joy in what you do :P

    Could always go the route of FFXI, and have a built in translator... tho FFXI was a bit easier as it was just English and Japanese... and the options of words were limited.... but that lead to great creative translations on both parts... was an interesting experience.

    Ah okay. Bit of shame that Zeus is the complete opposite to Mountain King, at least what I thought the Mountain King was like (Avatar, Stormbolt) although I suppose that's more like Sven.

    But Zeus is the king of a mountain. How does it not make sense. ._.
