EU servers have 3 languages

Post by Yeoman »

I'm looking there:
http://www.warcraftrealms.com/eu_realmstats.php

and can't see, what server have what language. Is it possible to make one more flag for EU servers - english, german or french? Easiest way is just one more column, but best way is posibility of filtering, so i don't see on page other 2 languages. Most english speaking players are not interested in french and german server stats. Same goes for french ppl and german ppl.

edit:
forgot to post, there is list of servers and languages: http://www.wow-europe.com/en/serverstatus/

Hello,

if it's a good suggestion (as I think it is, I miss it, too), then why hasn't it been implemented yet? :wink:

It's a question of time and priority. I have lots of ideas and things planned for the site but I don't have the time to get them all implemented.

There will be a fifth language on european realms soon: russian.

Another Idea that came to me while reading this topic: could it be possible to have the realm language in the "most wanted" list as well? It might bring up some competition between european players and improve the data quality.

Not a bad idea. Often the non-english realms are usually the least covered. Not surprising since the site isn't localized for those languages =(

Implementing the suggestion of Yeoman is IMHO not a question of time and priority, it is an necessity. It is not a feature that is nice to have, but one that is really needed to add usability to you site for non-US players.

The current presentation of realm data is farthest away from being user-friendly for EU players as it can get.

If you want to choose a realm based on the stats here, you manually have to check each servers language zone.

That is IMHO a huge flaw and renders the data collected here pretty useless for other than US based players, because it is extremly frustrating and time consuming to check every server that might be interesting for a transfer or something.

IMHO adding the option to sort or filter the servers by language would really increase the attractivness of this website for non-US players.
The data would be easier and most important a lot faster to access.

Increasing the user-friendliness of the data presentation might even result in receiving more submissions from non-US players, because your website would then be of more use to those players.

Please think about the priorities and Yeomans suggestion.

Since you feel so strongly about it, I have added in languages. I cannot ensure 100% accuracy as I do not check for the languages. I encourage anyone who comes across any in correct entries to please let me know.

Thanks for implementing the feature so fast, but there seems to have something gone wrong with the variables.
As far as I have checked it, every german-speaking server is flagged as FR. It seems, though I have not checked all french-speaking servers, that all of them are flagged as DE.
ES and enGB flags seem to be correct.

Yeah, was likely just a matter of misrepresentation and since it wasn't displayed anywhere until now, it was never a known issue =)

I know this is a yr old post, but the most wanted list is still a nightmare for EU people (like me), when i can i doing one thing on the desktop and scanning on the laptop on my only wow account.

Having all the non eng mixed in the most wated makes it a lot harder for me to upload the info i may find usefull :)

Ah, so a good idea to show the language on the Most Wanted page then? I can do that =)
