No speaky Engrish

So, last night I was tanking a Heroic UP when we noticed that the pug ret paladin we picked up basically spoke one word at a time. So of course, being the group of brigands we are, we had to fuck with him.

The funniest line of the night judging by laughter in vent was when I typed "WHY CAT NO EAT FRUIT?" after one of his single word sentences. I actually typed it several times through the instance with no response really.

There was one point where he died. We finished killing the mobs. He said "mana". Then he said "body".

Of course, smartassery prevailed again and Occeleta replied "Xylophopne". Of course the natural response from me was "dumptruck". This went on through the entire instance with us all cracking up over vent. "Why cat no eat fruit" is now our guild message of the day!

On a related note, I had a conversation with a gold farmer. I saw a toon spamming that they had several epics for sale including the Northern Barrier. I have had zero luck obtaining that item. So I ask him if he is a legit player or a gold seller. He actually responded that he was a gold seller. I asked if he was selling it for real money or wow gold. He said he was selling for real money but at a good price. I said not thank, to which he replied "Have fun playing!".

It was very odd because they usually have an auto response gold spam when you whisper them. I didnt even bother reporting him.

I fail to see why there was a need to make fun of a player who happens to not speak English as his/her first language. Next time you are in a foreign environment and wish the people around you cut you some slack because you don't speak much of their language, you will remember how classy you carried yourself in that instance. You must be really proud of yourself, dude....

English server. Speak english. This is a social game. There are servers for different languages.

Arrogant fools like you continue to give us Americans a bad name in the global community.

Based on your story, he was speaking English, perhaps just one word at a time, but it was English. Nothing he said seemed to be offensive. Your behavior and the way you represented yourself was far more offensive.

America gives itself a bad name for many many things. A WoW blog is hardly a blip on the radar.
