Previously I posted a question about the KR language support in ASIA server(http://forum.worldofwarships.asia/index.php?/topic/6921-need-official-in-game-chatting-channel-for-koreans/page__p__101750#entry101750). As you can see in the replys, moderator AALG said that 'ASIA server does not support Korean language officially for now, so WG ASIA can't help you'. I understood that the WGA didn't authorized to support Korean duplicately, because we have KR server which officially support it already.

 

Then things were changed. WoWS KR server annouced that they decided to close the server(attatched image; http://worldofwarships.kr/ko/news/common/super_test_close2/) recently, and transferring KR accounts to ASIA. I think this process means that ASIA server officially 'take over' KR server, with taking the 'authorization of supporting KR languageat the same time.

 

Problem is here. With the announce, they declared that ASIA server can't support KR language even after the closing of the KR server(아시아 서버에서는 정식 출시된 최신 버전의 월드 오브 워쉽을 즐기실 수 있으나 안타깝게도 한국어 서비스를 지원해 드릴 수 없습니다. 이 점 양해 부탁드립니다.). Does it mean that any of other server have no plan to support KR language(or players) from now? Or do you have any policy to solve this problem?

Apparently, nope.

 

Support Korean, Chinese or Japanese require different fonts (it's pretty big - full japanese font support is around 22MB) because current one doesn't have those character subsets. And translate stuffs. For now, you can just play the english client, it ain't so bad.

Hi Sgt_Jjong  . Please be patient as we are still looking into this issue. We will make an announcement once we get the confirmations.

 

 

 

Becuase of the KR server's POOR client update rate(it was 0.4.1.0 even at the closing of the server) & translation quality(there are tooooooo many wrong, akward, or bizarre expressions) and for the foreign server(NA,ASIA,RU,EU) usage, I made a KR language MOD in april 2015 and updating it in 0~2 days right after every patches including micro releases. The MOD is distributing in Korean WoWS community(http://cafe.naver.com/wotat/762839 ;addtional image, or just can download the MOD from the link(for 0.5.6.0 client)) with 5000+ downloads for each version and aproximately 200000+ downloads for total.

 

YetAnotherNoob // My MOD's KR font(including JP & CH font bit) weighs just 7.73MB. Full CJK font size would be under 10MB in my estimation.

 

IronGuard // Thanks for your official reply.

 

I want to help(or be helped) with the Korean language support. Waiting for your announcement.
