    Just dropped an application on the site, thought I'd pop in an say howdy. Y'all seem like a really swell bunch of people and I look forward to getting to know you and eventually see you in game (Alpha 2 and onwards for me).

    I read this, wanted to like it, realized I couldn't and got sad.

    If only more people had this mindset the world forums would be a much better place.

    Hurray! Thanks I will make sure to at the very least live up to the minimum activity requirements. More than likely more than that since summer is now coming and IIRC Alpha is supposed to begin by the end of it (also there's more free time in general in summer, so yay).

    Hey guys. Been inactive for a quite while, sorry for that. Got caught up with planning my trip to Star Wars Celebration and some other stuff and I've never been good at multi tasking my different interests.
     
    I tried just now to log onto the guild site and it seems like I've been removed from the roster (which is understandable), was wondering what I should do? Do I need to re-apply?

    I would agree with what some people have already stated. That there are quite a few countries and regions in Europe that wouldn't really need, or even want, localized versions of the game (I know I wouldn't). For example I know that most Scandinavians have fairly little trouble with understanding and communicating in English (even if quite a few Scandinavians do sound pretty silly when they actually speak English).
     
    I guess there might be a bit more problematic for the ones speaking German, French and Spanish since, from what I've gathered, fewer people are fluent in English in this areas and they tend to rely more on dubbing and localizing.

    We are concerned about latency, and have heard this concern from others for a PvP centric game like ours.  This drives us to want servers closer in internet terms to players.
     
    If we end up with ~10k early backers in the EU, we'll need to put a server there for the late betas.  The same would hold for Asia-Pacific/Aus/NZ, South America, Russia/Eastern Europe and/or China
     
    We hear the feedback on English working OK for many countries, such as the Nordic countries and the Netherlands.  While Germany/France/Spain/Portugal(+Brazil) would need to be localized in the EU.  Regardless if the game is in English or not, emailing/calling to fix an issue with you VIP subscription or other customers service likely needs to be localized to be effective.  Community needs to be fostered in the native language to reach beyond the bilingual people.  It is a more nuanced problem than many here think, because their English is fluent enough or they are experienced enough players to thrive on North America services.
     
    Appreciate the feedback, keep it coming!

    ya, I personally don't see a need for localization either.
     
    Translations are usually piss-poor anyway. At least I personally cannot stand to play a game in german, unless the game was made by germans. Really all the skill and item names just don't translate. it's cringeworthy.
    I cannot speak for other languages.
     
    So don't prioritize that pls. Offer a translation 1 year after your release. That is completely acceptable.
     
    An EU server shouldn't be dependent on having your game in multiple languages. English is fine

    From my experience most Dutch people have no issues with speaking English whatsoever. The amount of people that speak Dutch is also relatively small so I would definitely not focus on it. I personally prefer to speak English over my primary language (Dutch).
     
    What surprises me however is that it isn't certain that there will be European servers considering that the Europeans will definitely be a considerable amount of the playerbase. I understand that it requires a whole lot more resources but still.
