I play in Ragnaros, a latin server, and I've noticed I'm getting groups with people from US servers. Anyone else noticed? Language barriers don't make this paladin happy.

As far as I am aware, all the servers are grouped up in to two bundles. There's the EU server stack for European or close to nations, and the US server stack for the rest of the world.I play on Oceanic servers myself and they're all linked to the US ones. There's no real language barrier (aside from poor grammar :P ) but it does mean if I can't sleep there is the option of a cross realm random instance and there will be people online in some place in the world for it.

The issue is that most of the people from the latin servers only speaks spanish or portuguese. Until recently I could only form groups with those guys. It's not the end of the world, most pugs are silent anyway, but for some dungeons you need some basic comunications (yeah, I mean HoR)

It shouldn't be mixing languages up. I'm on a primarily spanish battlegroup (Crueldad) but only ever group with the english speaking realms. Could one or more server be a language-specifc one only unofficially?

I don't think there are any Spanish speaking servers on my battlegroup (WW), but I would love to run with a group of Spanish speakers. Those years of college spanish are going to waste and it's always nice to step out of your comfort zone a bit.

Yeah, the same happened to me last night. 4 people, all in the same guild though. Trying to remember my high school Spanish wasn't fun, though they did speak a bit of English.

Someone should make a list of the most-needed-to-know spanish WoW phrases. The only one I know is "establos, pronto!" which I picked up in an Arathi Basin game. Stuff like "sheep" and "MT" and "mana" and.... whatever else needs communicating?

I started leveling an undead warlock on a Latin American server last week. Was kinda fun, lowbies there seem more friendly than lowbies on my regular servers and quickly wanted to join as a group. I know very little Spanish and they knew even less English so it was quite amusing, actually, to retype (wish I could cut and paste in/from WoW) into Google Translator...

@artifexfor future reference, and for anyone else who wants to know, if you want to copy out of game, highlight and press ctrl c, then paste out of game, to paste in game ctrl v pastes it in.

I play on Earthen Ring and I am continually grouped with members of Quel'Thalas. The reason I even notice that realm name? Every single Spanish speaking person I've been grouped with has been that realm. I'm bothered because it is hard to understand them, but I can't imagine being on Quel'Thalas and not being able to understand any of your group members, who are likely ALL from English speaking realms. I was in a heroic HoR run the other day where three of the players were from QT and we couldn't get anything done because the tank and the healer couldn't talk to each other at all. Blizzard really needs to fix their cross-realm stuff that puts different languages together, because people just can't communicate when it happens. (inc flamewar?)

@elstorYep. I'm on ER and they were on QT. Oh and for the Hunter who tried to ninja Tyrannical Beheader from me, presumably for his DK buddy who already HAS one: muera en un incendio, p***.
