Really bad English!
 
I'm noticing a ton of simply bad English in convos. Errors that run from spelling to syntax to grammar-it's all there. It's a pet peeve of mine so thought i'd mention it. Brings down the over-all quality of the experience for me.

Not everyone speaks English as a first language. Welcome to the internet.

I'm pretty sure sure he meant in-game conversations with NPCs...

Maybe I 'm wrong?

Anyway, I would think English as a first language and the internet would have very little to do with such as issue.

Actually i'm talking about game convos from NPC's, and even interfaces, and not player chat convos.

I really wish there were two different servers. One for NORTH AMERICA and one for everyone else. Seriously.

Not everybody has an appropriate education to be able to spell correctly...

Many just can't be bothered...

And English as a second language is really tough, as many of our syntax rules completely baffle most Non-Americans.

(heh... many natural born resident's can't handle it either...) ;)

I noticed you did not even manage to use a single word from my language either...the universe is full of dissapointments:rolleyes:
