What does it mean when the chat window is full of little squares? As it is an Asian server I expect to see some type of foreign language, but how am I meant to understand when it is filled with little squares?

Simple enough to me 😛

j/k

Yeah we all see it all the time.

Sometimes if you simply say, "I only speak English" they will switch back or translate.

And sometimes you just come across putzes no matter what language they speak/type 😄

Also, Americans don't understand Aussies.

LOL.

My father had to be examined by an American doctor once on naval exchange.

When the doctor saw "Australian" on his file, he called for an interpreter.

Not even joking.

HAHAHA. I DO believe that actually. Mostly because the Doctor was probably one of those people who don't  know the difference between Australia and Austria.:fish_palm:

Apparently, a significant amount of Australian mail goes through Austrian Post Offices.

Cant be any worse than the communication on this server with the [content removed] I see everyday. My ping to NA server is exactly the same to ASIA server. 

Insults/inappropriate use of medical term. Post edited, user warned.

It's just CJK (chinese, Japanese and Korean) language users chatting. Wows client cannot display Chinese, Japanese or korean correctly unless one install the game in one of the above language as the “normal” installation doesn't include the font library necessary required by these language. When the client fails to display a character, it automatically falls back to a square box characyer in Unicode, hence the boxes.

That being said, most of the players on SEA understand enough English and you can probably do just fine talking normally.

I assume they're using characters and symbols not installed on your game files, maybe they're not using English as their default language?

My ping goes from about 30 on SEA to 100 on NA and I honestly can’t tell the difference other than NA having more potato.

is that possible ?

I even tested it. Back when ranked was at Tier 6 for a season I played both servers with a Budyonny and had a 76% win rate on NA compared to 58% on SEA.
