That would probably be the International (English) server of Ragnarok Online.

Yup thats what it is. Anyone play that game? To big for my slow internet to dl. And on topic, I hate when people type like that. Sometimes it seems like people go through more trouble of talking like that than talking normal.

Enq... Just so you know, I laughed for a good 5 minutes at that comic... Also, if I could turn a n00b into shield for begging, I would... Kal, get on that would you? ;D

Yea, like I have no beef with people whose first language is not english. That's fine, and I'm not going to expect them to type everything prim and proper. But it's usually easy to tell between someone who doesn't know much english and someone who is too sloppy to actually put the insignificant amount of extra effort into doing to the right way.

P.S. - I'm even okay with abreviating some words or phrases for the sake of speed (specially when fs'ing and communicating in the heat of battle). But sometimes it's just ridiculously immature.

No doubt it would be better if everyone talked with proper grammar. Though there are differences that are important and might explain why someone is talking like that:

- He likes it.
- He's foreign.
- He's a n00b.
- He wants to irritate players.
- He pretends.

I know a few people inside my circle of 'friends' that talk exactly like that. Because they like it? No, not really. They just suck at spelling english words.
I agree it would be way more comfortable and appropiate if everyone talked the way they are supposed to talk, but i have to admit that i sometimes enjoy seeing people talk like that.
Once while i was in Wraith Woods a Newbie walked towards me. I tended to respect him for what he was. Untill this popped out: "Ay, u fckin kser go the hel outa her u ashol". I didn't understand and responded simply saying "What are you telling me?".
"i told u to rot off u morron", he said.
He talked like a n00b, most of them want to level fast. I was already suprised how he even got there, probably using Dexter and waste all of his coins.
"Perhaps we can make a deal?"
"wut deal"
"I will help you level up and in return you leave this place after your first level."
"k.. how i lvl up"
"Just stay behind me and i'll protect you. I will damage the darklings while you get the last strike."
*Walks off towards shaman spawn*
"Go to the other side, though stay far away from the darkling with the wand looking weapon. When i say so you attack him while i tank."
As i slowly walked towards the group, i swapped to my inventory.. i had a plan.
I was attacked by the whole group and shouted out "Attack the shaman!" at the n00b.
"alright i dmg him real hard now u no"
I clicked on my horse mound, and run behind some tree's behind the n00b. He was slain in one hit by the shaman..
"Why did you have to do that to me you rotten idiot! I'm just a poor newbie looking to gain some levels!" Rolling Eyes
Appearently, he was just someone pretending to have no idea of proper grammar. These people tend to want something from the player, even a slight intention to irritate them. The way the get them back, is using the situation to your advantage...

I learned typing better playing Akarra.
I'd be glad to see more people typing in good, proper english, though I still think it might be a bit too much for some people.

Hahaha, Archosseus I wish you had a screenshot or logfile of that. I would've paid good Quats for a copy. Laughing
