I was the last person to blame. I'm not saying english speaking people don't do this but they do it a lot less. They can be just as bad in terms of skill but they don't blame other people for it.
Maybe I may come out as a racist but i'm sure many of you feel the same. I don't hate spanish speaking people. I'm fine with people who are spanish speaking and they actually know what they're doing in league. However you don't find many of those.
1) Communication is limited to typed words. The pinging function has been removed from League and terms that are universally used in English are never understood, such as character names, item names, lane names, objective names, "gank." Also English speakers always communicate, especially by typing, especially intelligibly.
2) Spanish speakers are lacking in understanding of one of the most basic concepts in the game- team composition; they must simply have no ability to reason or coordinate. This is evidenced by all of the data I've attached to my post. Also, a lot of them are members of the LoL community and consequently engage in raging and blaming behavior.
I'm perfect, just like every other bad [English-speaking] LoL player. Statistically speaking, English speakers blame their teammates much less frequently on average than do Spanish speaking players (See attachment). Don't get me wrong, some English speakers are even as bad as Spanish speakers- sounds crazy, I know- but blaming is just not something we English speakers do. (I mean it's uncivilized, barbaric. It'd be like calling out an entire group of people on a forum for something for which they are no more to blame than I am, and providing no evidence to support a completely unbelievable complaint! ... Well, it's not quite that bad I guess...)
Look, maybe I seem like I'm generalizing in a way that could be conceived as "racist," but I'm sure many of you are racists, and even more of you participate in useless, detrimental stereotyping behavior. So that makes it okay, right? Anyway, I don't hate Spanish speaking people; I'm just painfully ignorant. I am willing to tolerate Spanish speaking players on my server, but only if
they carry me or otherwise prove that they are at least as good as I am (i.e. amazing). Unfortunately, you'll almost never meet a Spanish speaking player who is as good as me, or even decent. Hence, they need their own server so they can stop making me lose.
Thanks for hearing me out. After all, it is much easier to rant and complain and act helpless, than it is to- say, learn even a few
words in Spanish to help me deal with these situations that I so often
run into. It's not like there are two million free translation services on.. what's that thing called.. the internet?
/ Ayuda / Ayudar" = "Help me
/ Help. / to help"
Any of these, or any butchering of these should work.
/ Proteja Caitlyn" = "Protect me
/ Protect Caitlyn."
Vayne" = "Focus
Is this really that difficult?
"Blitz es en la maleza
" = "Blitzcrank is in the brush
Ping the brush you are referring to, if necessary.
" = "Tower
Try this in conjunction with pinging the tower you want prioritized/sieged/defended.
"Rojo / Azul" = "Red / Blue"
For buffs. "Quiero ___" means "I want ___".
" = "Please
I know.. seems foreign. But try this with anything of the above, or anything else to automatically increase team cohesion.
" = "Thank you
If you really want to impress!
Man, just imagine how much these 10 or so terms, some of which are cognates or practically universally known, could improve your play experience!
Hint: Write out this short list and keep it on a post-it note next to your monitor.
