    Default STAY AWAY from my german only lfm

    I can understand everyone is so much after tp and so...

    BUT if a lfm is straight in german ..

    WHY can´t you resist clicking on it?

    Wyfinder is meant as a GERMAN server! If i want to play with multi languages i either join an english lfm on wayfinder or play on an english server.

    I hate it, but the lesson today told me to get a german-check before i let ppl inside a group.

    Those ppl i´m talking about are (in my point of view) quite aware that it is indeed a german lfm .. because they join the quest seconds after entering the group .. And once they are inside a quest i can´t kick them ..

    So the only way left for me is - i´ll build up a stupid german sentance which no google translater will give you the correct answer to..
    And ONLY those who can answer the question may join ...

    How brute of a none reading-lfm community to force such strange behaviour from me

    besides your point ..
    i´m still standing after what I wrote..

    is it tooo much to ask for?
    I do notice that ppl normaly don´t read the lfm .. but this kinda behaviour just ruins my fun of a "german server"

    Whatever i´l get that check-box and will be fine .. never mind about crying out loud

    Aside from the fact that anyone posting they wanted an english only group would take a beating; don't select the quest from the list when you create the LFM, put what quest you are running in German in the comments section. If the person can't tell you what quest you are running...

    y good point!

    i normaly write some german in the lfm and than select a quest
    maybe it is smarter (for me) to just NOT select a quest


    to your point with english lfm on wayfinder . . have u ever been there ?
    there are normaly only english lfm so my "german only" does stick out a bit

    I have not made a favor runner on Wayfiner yet. I was actually talking more about the forums.There have been threads before about people being able to speak English when hitting an LFM, and they typically do not end well.

    And you need to remember it seems like 40% of the people hitting low level lfms don't even own the content. Really, I think they just start clicking lfms until someone accepts.

    after trying out a bit ..
    i did find some funny questions ...


    Just because it makes me laugh .. here is one example - which i will of course not use

    My question to you would be :
    Wenn ich Dir einen Schenkel einer Lila Kuh anbieten würde, wass wäre es?

    Your correct answer would be:
    Schokolade

    ...
    Now i got o failsave way to prtect my lfms :-)

    Besides that feel free to click on any .. non german-checkbox requesting lfm from me and! enjoy your time on wayfinder

    I do not exclude anyone in general,
    i just think when there are 10 lfms and only one is written in german .. and demanding german voice talking..
    why would one join this group and streight jump into the quest ?

    I think this is a strange behaviour and found a good way to deal with it (as you might see above)

    Actually i do welcome any player on wayfinder .. with "german speaking only" you are not able to fill a tempest spine or so ... jet..
    But i DO ALSO like the idea of a german only group and i would like to promote this idea , or maybe make ppl aware that there are indeed germans on a german server.

    Some people play on Wayfinder because it's a new server and they can play with other new players that don't have all twinked out toons. Also know that Wayfinder was built because there such a huge player base of German players, not because they (Turbine) wanted a "German Only" server. I play on Gallanda and we have a ton of German, Thai, Portuguese, Korean, French and Spanish speaking people as well as English. If you don't want to play with other language speaking players, that's your right. Remember that the comments section of the LFM Social Panel "bugs" sometimes and people can't read what you wrote. So, you may have to do a verbal or written screening. I speak some Korean, French and German so I enjoy the experience of late night Gallanda. I am glad that the people on Gallanda have a different perspective.

    Speaking of German language servers, has anyone made an Artificer named Claudia yet? Those Iron Companions do look kind of like German Shepards.

    It's been a long while since I have either posted or hit an LFM on a lowbie. Against those kind of people there is no defense. In any language.

    You have a point and shouldn't listen to the flames. It's common decency, save mistakes, not to apply to a group that says german speakers if you aren't. On a german server at that.. (yeah you could argue)

    I also think slowpokes have limited business in advertised zerg partys, and vise versa.

    I know I should know better than to correct the cube in german grammar.

    There is not direct translation of "play nice in here." The message is transported best by "Benehmt euch." or "Seid brav.".

    cubes are soooo huggable.

    But the lack of reading a lfm isn't limited to Wayfinder, good luck with future lfm's.

    There are no groups to join on this server anyway, the place is almost dead. I would have thought you would take anyone you could get.

    This server seams like some rich kid's personal playground to me.
    He asked us "Be you Angels..??"
    And we said "Nay...We are but Men..! Rock On..!!!"

    I don't think it's only about reading lfm

    More about the annoyance that Wayfinder was announced as German server and people switched over there in the hope to find German as the default language in chat and lfm (while of course still being able to speak English if one player couldn't participate otherwise) only to find English as default like on all other servers.
