Considering about box box (and any languages other than English)

Hello guys

I got frustrated in Ranked Battles (well, it's that players speak box box language all the time and not  a single word of english)

This ruins team communication - oh, and also generates frustration

How about creating an English test.... and if one doesn't pass he won't be able to play WOWS?

Always open google translate and copy paste those boxes there to get a good understanding.

 

Although usually if people use their natives in ranked, they probably just ranting, friendly banter, or swearing. I have yet to see anyone use their native language for strategy related chat.

Only time I've seen people using their own language for strategy-related chat was between div-mates, and that dropped off after div-chat was implemented.

 

And trust me - just because someone understands English doesn't mean they're willing to strategize. Just play on NA on a bit and you'll see.

How do I make the chat show the text in the language it's supposed to show instead of squares if I can read some foreign languages?

I believe you can't by default, but I also believe theres a mod that allows you to do it.

I heard changing the font works, not sure which font though. Alternatively use JP/CN language from the launcher.

Whyyyy--

Yeah the game actually knows what those characters are, they just don't show them, but they can be copy pasted and you can see what it was.

I see, I have Japanese letters installed. But still when Japanese player types in their language, I still got boxes.

 

I always thought those boxes are blank.

You can change the font provided from Benlisquare here
