I agree, Arallu, people who do not speak English as their primary language are a different story. If it is beyond their control, and they leave out words, that is fine. Your english is great.

I am suggesting that even people that don't speak english as a primary language should try to be proper. If you understand plz, k, lol, u, tnx, r, pls, thx, bi, and so forth, you should be able to spell out the word.

If perhaps someone that doesn't speak english as their primary language leaves out a few words, that is fine, and completely understandable. I am just suggesting that anyone with the power to control H4Y lOl kBI! should do so. ;)

Heh, I agree, in battle, it is fine to say 'hlp plz' or something like that. I, however, can not do this, because I have a disability of sorts.

When I think 'Type fast or I will die...' it always ends up with me just trying to type 'Help.' quickly, and then misspelling it. By the time I get it right I am usually dead.

Boddah has been slain by a Bagarog!
Boddah says 'Help'
Boddah says 'God damn. I'll be back in a minute.'
Boddah has been kicked from the fellowship. Silly n00b...

Hm, well for such situations we could have keybinds, and i really think this should be implented into the game. Judging from several other games, i think it shouldn't be to hard. It doesn't even have to be in-game (i would prefer to though). You could just set up a Config File with all of the keyboard buttons, no more, in case anyone might screw it up. These buttons should be simply modifyable. Like this:

1=Say|Shout Help me! I'm reaching my death!
F=Say Yes.
G=Say|Whisp Shh.. stay still.

and etc.

Or like done in Neverwinter Nights, set up a small bar somewhere with both click-able and button press-able configurations.
This is a major help, sometimes it could even prevent people or groups dieing. (Set spell F1> Group Teleport to Nearest Town comes to mind.. Or Set spell F2> Area physical protection barier..)
Such things are life savers, and you don't have to open the inventory just to switch clothes, weapon, armor, mound etc.

Anyhow, i support the fact people should talk better and how it's meant to be. There has to be some 'Grammar Tutorial' though, else they would want to learn to talk better but don't know what to change.

Another resolve is just typing it faster. It should be obvious when you are weakened or not. Type out the sentice while attacking and when you need help just press enter. You shouldn't be talking about something else while fighting anyway..., right?

I agree with Archosseus. Shortcuts would be pretty sweet and save tons of time.

I thought there was a topic about this (aliases or something) in the developement forum. ;|

Oh, and I don't see why anyone would take the time to type "plz" when asking for help. A more efficent way is to spam crap such as "BDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD" and "LS;DFOdm8udfijOASODkLSDA;├ÂLDSA" so people will either think you're mad or you're dying.
... :P

I suppose it's still good, Archosseus, despite people who will bind them to quick-insults. Neutral
