This thread is meant to be stuff developers posted on the discord, which is why I brought that up. As long as you specifiy it wasn’t posted by us, you can keep those up.

Oh gosh those items look fantastic I know I’m gonna have a lot of fun with the whole Bowling Pin and Golf Club technique.


#5479

You know you have an awesome dev team when they join random people in the game and show off cool stuff. If I ever become a game developer (which is my dream job) I hope to do things like this.

rip brits


#5484

Now let’s hope they don’t complain about the people who speak a different launguage


#5485

I think the complaining about the messages is justified. I like that we will be able to to toggle it off, just as they will be able to turn off our messages if they wish to.


#5486

yeah but everyone has to keep in mind not everyone in the EU servers is speaking something that isn’t english


#5487

Majority of people in UK speak English, so RIP UK players I guess.
I’ll get silenced by US players :disappointed:


#5488

How about a UK server, seeing as you have 5 locations for US (6 servers total). It would be nice to have just 1 server for EU region that isn’t Frankfurt.


#5489

Wouldn’t it be better to create separate language-based chat channels?
What if someone from Asia or Europe wants to communicate in English? Their messages will get filtered despite the language.
And how will this change help with the chat being full of languages you don’t understand, if you’re not from America or Australia, where there’s pretty much one common language?

I think separate channels would allow everyone to chat in their preferred languages, without bothering each other.


#5490

This is just a filter that you can set, it isn’t forcing anyone into separate channels or forcing anyone to hide anything. If the player wants to hide those servers, that’s on them. They are default all on.

Making channels for each language would separate people further and it would rely on players to actually use the feature. They’d have to select what language channel they prefer, which they could easily not select that and their chat will still get mixed in with other languages. People should be able to speak in any language regardless of what region.


#5491

Well, yes, but in my eyes, if people can hide the entirety of a chat of a server, they’ll also end up hiding messages from that server’s residents trying to communicate with everyone in English (or whichever other language), which could make their experience worse. Imagine trying to talk to the entire game, but with half the population not seeing your messages.

Well, as I see it, separation isn’t a bad thing in this case. I don’t think anyone wants to share channels with people who speak different languages. I don’t mean that in a bad way, but I rather think it would be more tidy and easy to use for everyone involved. People speaking minority languages wouldn’t be bothered by the constant stream of English or other less frequently used languages and vice versa. You could even have a channel specifically for English, while keeping the current global chat open for all languages, just the way it’s now.

As for the UI argument, I think a good solution would be making the channels into separate tabs (similar to the way global and local are right now), automatically entering people into global, English and the language associated with their steam nationality and allowing them to manually enter and leave channels as they please.
The tabs would have to function as separate chat rooms.

Then again, I’m speculating a fair bit.
