I actually find it easier to just keep the ASCII. Because after playing 4 half years you kinda know what they are saying. But if get the Arabic font installed. i would be completely lost on what they are saying.

Couldn't be assed quoting the statement on the first page, which I mostly agree with but heres a few things I've experienced:

1. Egyptians bot.
2. I found out the meaning of "******" or w.e it is when I became friends with one in the early days, he called me all kinds of **** without me realising :/
3. 70% of the time when someone attempted to scam me, they were egyptian.
4. I remember asking one if they were my friends main account, they replied with a lot of abuse towards America, despite me being Welsh. Oh, my mother was dragged into it too :/
5. Most egyptians bot, but so do others so meh

The above made me hate them a little, but what made me hate them the most is when I was minding my own business, scattering at BI when I killed a flasher...
I continued, only to get pked by him, which was fair enough, so I continued, three kills later he didn't give up as well as throwing verbal abuse at me such as "noop" and "kosomak" when I had yet to say anything...
Logged off because I cba, logged on next day to find myself KOS by a few bulkers...
Now you tell me they think its just a game :/

Note: I did PK a lot but only on my fire, my arch was nooby then and no one really knew it.

Video games are serious business. At least to some people.

CO is Egypt's national video game.

Sort of like Starcraft for koreans.

Can't believe people are whining about Egys.

People have been begging for PK fodder, TQ sends us Egys and you still complain.

The problem is not egys joining en-masse, the problem is english-speakers leaving en-masse.

If we had the brisk growth of pre-lottery CO, we would have a good balance of egy and english-speakers.

Guess what screwed that balance up.....

Egys never invaded our server so I don't have to deal with em and good luck if they did because we have plenty of english speaking Max BP people who stay on one side for gw. But they are just taking the place of all the people who came before. Its like how Turks basically took over Knights Online (KOL) because english speaking players all quit. I still play (not really) and would still play if they took over, because in my opinion it gives me someone to pk. But if they were cool I wouldn't mind. And you have to realize Egys didn't **** this game up, TQ did.

Wow, just wow. I must say that I've heard and agree with both sides of the arguments presented on both sides of the spectrum.

For those of you against the influx of Egyptian players your reasons were:

1. Communication issues. (They don't speak your language well)
2. Botting issues
3. Scamming issues (The "bait-and-switch")
4. Spam-related (be it on "World Chat" or the [Trade] button
5. There's too many of them

For those that were for the influx of Egyptian players your main reason were:

1. Many of the English speaking players have left your sever(s)
2. Egyptians don't start ****
3. They increased the prospect of PvP (when they call friends over, the more the merrier)
4. They have their own [in-game] culture (Our [in-game] culture is based on respect - theirs on friendship)
5. They're just trying to enjoy the game as much us.

__________________________________________________ ________________________

Now when you take it in perspective, you'll see that many of the problems that you thought were there are only superficial. For example, when was the last time you saw an Egyptian screaming on World Chat that their friend hacked their account? The majority of those hack related issues that I've personally witnessed were between English speakers (American/European) who decided to share their equipment with their "friends."

Another example, is when you look at the spam that occurs of World Chat. If it's not the broken English of Egyptian sellers that you see, it's most likely the whiny *****ing of some American/European player who just lost at PvP or something.

I am not going to go into minute detail about everything listed above, you can extrapolate that list and interpret it any way you see fit.However, overall, the main issue that seems to be the pressing one is that of communication. I think that playing a game that doesn't allow for you to understand those around you is indeed a dysfunction of the game itself. I'm pretty sure they can install some form of auto-translate into the system (even at its rudimentary form, it would be effective in some way).

There was more that I wanted to say but I lost my train of thought (but you get the gist)

That's TQ's fault.

Back in the day, a full 2-soc +6 player could die to a full 1-soc +4 player in 4 hits max.

If we had full +12 egys back then it would be fun to pwn them because they couldnt fb for ****.
