Topic BR/LA servers and us.
Edited by Aniron on 9/22/12 7:26 PM (PDT)
This is something that I was directed to that was started in the General Forums. I found it helpful, and I wasn't sure if there had already been something like that here. I come from a battlegroup with 0 LA/BR servers so this was pretty new to me. I'm not saying everyone should apply this, obviously. But for those who are curious or some such, I thought this may be helpful.
This is something I posted in regards to the negativity surrounding the BR/LA servers:
I have a Brazilian friend who speaks and types English very well. He explained to me that he got an early start when he was young because his parents sent him and his siblings to lessons and they worked hard at it every day. He also said that nowadays, English lessons there are expensive and that a handful of those who do take it may not practice outside of the class (which isn't helpful, anyway, really).
Below is a list of actual BR/LA realms:
Before LA/BR realms were introduced, BR/LA'ers rolled on US servers that were recommended to them (which means it could go either way). A few I know of are:
I'm sorry, I only speak English. - Me desculpe, só falo Inglês
Hello / Hi - Olá / Oi

Don't stand in the fire. (Não pise no fogo)
Now is a good time for Timewarp/Bloodlust/Heroism - Agora é uma boa hora de se usar Distorção temporal, Banho de sangue, Heroismo.
That's a lot of phrases. What I did is take what I thought I would most commonly use and made macros to put on my second, unused bar. I think I only did 5 or 6.
Also! I'm not a total bleeding heart. I know people are jackasses no matter where they're from. If you know someone is being rude to you, here is my favorite phrase:
Cala a boca- Shut your mouth!

you know what's funny?
French players don't have to play with *insert any other language/country* players
German players don't have to play with *insert any other language/country* players
Russian players don't have to play with *insert any other language/country* players
what does that make the US?
a third world country?
besides with most brazilian players, the language barrier is the least I worry about
they're utterly terrible and if they played only with other brazilians most wouldn't even be able to complete 5mans.
would be nice if they matched an all brazilian bg team against us teams though, because:
- they can speak their language with their teammates - since they can't communicate with the enemy team anyways it's a win win
- the US team gets free honor and maybe achievements (ie 20 kbs in wsg)
edit: btw I would appreciate a vote-up on my post so I get a brighter color that would be really cool and look cool like for my post
I feel the same way! I don't like that Blizzard did it this way, but I'm not really blaming ALL Brazilians/etc as a whole. I've noticed that yes, many are a bit challenged with the game. I've met a good handful that were actually good, though, and that's nice to see.
The Brazilian friend I have lives there and has been playing WoW since either Vanilla or BC, but I don't think it was actually put on their shelves until just before Cataclysm.

like don't get me wrong, I've fought some really good brazilian teams in arena and I have huge respect for playing with an extremely !@#$ty ping (they have 500+ usually I'm told) and still play that well (that is, except for the triple dps teams lol)
but the vast majority is really bad (not sure why)
