In battle communications with language barrier

Hi all, 

I'm not sure if this has been brought up before, but playing on the Asian server and speaking English, makes it extremely hard to communicate with each other, as I've seen things written in Malay, Thai etc etc they're obviously thinking the same of me when I don't respond in a meaningful way.

Typing, radar'd in when you're a dd and bug out of a cap erratically looks confusing, especially if you have no idea what was typed. yes advanced players would go yes they have X ship, probably a radar, but that takes a while to get there, and being able to communicate that, might teach it earlier in the curve.

Is it at all possible to get a second wheel, like the B key, with things like, radar'd, hyro'd, located, push the flank, hold the flank, etc etc, so you can signal your intentions and what is happening to you. I tend to get rather frustrated when you spot your flank is 4v8 and you type hold here, and half your team keeps pushing, but maybe they're not bad, maybe they've got tunnel vision and they simply can't understand what was written, and vice a versa.

I'm sure people can think of other things that need to be signall'd, so no matter the language gap, you can do basic communication with each other beyond target that person, and well done. ( I am assuming that the words on the B wheel are set for your install language)


Anyway, just an idea, sorry if this has been brought up before.

Unfortunately this is a result of being a Multi Country server - but, the in game voices / language do play in there proper formats. So if you use the in game pre defined communication, they will understand it. As is my understanding :)

They added quick commands and more connivence to conversation, division chat/vc or someone uses exteral program vc

and main problem is barrier of language, someone doesnt know english or someone good english

just use quick commands to conversation or use simply words like, i go a, def a, cv back, cap etc
