    Ubisoft can promote the game to specific regions which in return can bring many English speaking players. Speaking in a different language shouldn't be illegal. The staff team didn't rewrite START and STOPDONTDROP for no reason.

    A mile of road, you can drive a mile.

    A mile of runway and you have the whole world.

    At least if you’re trying to trade in a public world try and speak in English so that people around you don’t feel bad.

    Most online games have a rule of not speaking another language in chats, so something like that should be implemented to maybe the broadcasting system so that it isn’t filled with other languages.
    yeah. Pretty sure saw an SB in indonesian selling accounts, zeus 2dl focus 3dl or something like that. Those accounts are definitely hacked.

    So I think we need growtopia interface in other languages as well. (like choose game language english, bahasa indonesia, suomi, deutsch, espanol, francais, etc)

    Or just different servers so that

    Asia has one server, can't access the other servers.

    Europe & U.S & the rest of the world has one big server.

    I really hate it when an Indo comes in front of me and speaks Indo, thinking that I would understand

    Well, it could just be a trend there. Remember in 2013 there were a LOT of Korean and Singaporean players? They're still here but I think the number went down drastically. So we just have to wait and see what happens.

    also please don't kill me I just don't see alot of them anymore, and I COULD be wrong.

    They can already communicate with ease, but having a couple keyboard language modes would be cool.

    Don't think of it as a barrier. Think of it as an opportunity to learn. I doubt that the amount of indonesian players will decrease significantly any time soon, so I suggest trying to learn the basics, like that one guy already translated a few words, which can actually be quite useful, and maybe if you have any indonesian friends who you speak english with, surprise them and show them that you care and try to interact a little in indonesian. Wouldn't hurt...

    Yeah, the only words I know are the following:

    Apa = what
    itu = it
    kontol= a bad word
    and the usual WKWKWKKWKWKWKWKWKWKWK = HAHAHAHHAHAHA

    The thing is: It's hard to try to do so when I only know how to say hello or something, then they start to speak some language I don't even recognize.
    How do I respond?

    maybe a short sentence thats easy to remember to kind of tell them ''i dont speak the language'' or ''i speak just a bit''. idk anything like that would probably work.
    also, what's up with ''kontol'' and why do i see it everywhere. did a big wave of kids suddenly learn a new swear word and now they're just saying it to be a cool gamer?

    It is kind of impossible to remember the sentence in Indonesian, malaysian, Russian, japanese, korean, and arabic.

    The only languages I am fluent in is Finnish, Swedish, English and a bit of spanish.

    Ever heard of Google translate?
    To thine own self be true,
    and it must follow,
    as the night the day,
    thou canst not then be false to any man.


    I have read through Ubisoft's ToS and EULA, feel free to ask any questions!

    I’ve noticed Indonesian players increase around the 2015 days... 2013 was mainly korean and english.

    You can just memorize or write down the language that is most common in Growtopia.

    I'll have to agree with this. We can also learn a little something about their culture.

    Them: *indo words that i definetely dont understand*
    Me: *leaves the world and visits another one*
    Inner me: The heck. Indos again?!


    No offense but indonesians has invaded growtopia and its kinda sad. I can rarely see people from other countries because almost all of the population is indonesians.
    Not saying you don't have freedom of speech but what you said there is kinda discriminatory and inappropriate.

    It is not discriminatory. It happens to me tens of times on a DAILY basis, and I get kind of annoyed at it.
