The fundamental problem is simple as many people have already pointed out: Riot does not have server for all regions of the world. This is a commercial decision on the company's part, and you cannot really blame them for doing this.

The practical consequence is that people vent their frustration on a certain racial group that they perceive to be the cause of their bad experiences with games, because they have had some bad games with people who they believe belong to that particular race group. This is racism based on ignorance and intolerance, and most importantly, it does not help, at all.

And it's a slippery slope, once people start going down that path. For example, look at the recent conflict between Chinese and Korean Diablo 3 players. Let's not end up there.

Oh QQ. I'm female, new, and pretty crappy at this game, and I can't begin to count on my fingers and toes combined how many times I've been yelled at, name called, ect..just because people didn't like certain ways I've played. Grow up, learn to ignore it, and quit playing the race card. If I felt the need to sit there and constantly defend myself during a game just because someone called me a 'bro' or less than stellar names, I'd be wasting more time typing than playing. I have some extra tissues too that my kids have left over...

wonder how difficult it would be to incorperate a translator into the game... just saying it would break the language barrier. dunno

Given the quality of web translator these days, I say it would probably start more problems. It would be absolutely hilarious.

Imagine...

most of the time the majority of the people in game speak english and people who speak other languages refuse to speak in english or to cooperate. I'm from mexico and yet I speak english and spanish. I just deal with the racism but if you flat out refuse to speak in english in a NA server then people will screw your **** up lol

sorry to respond with this but : I'm a french canadian , My first language is French and When I play with my friend even if he's french canadian too , I try hard to speak in english so my other teammates can UNDERSTAND me and play as a team. It would be very frustrating for them if My friend and I would speak in our language only and don't even give a ''F'' about them. We play on North America Servers and the main language is English and i totally agree to speak it for the benefit of all. On the other hand , pure racism is a thing that should not exist in this game, If you make effort to include some english in your gameplay and they still harass you , report , that's my only advise.
