Could we get some sort of system that tags accounts for a language type (Such as English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, etc.). I got nothing against foreign languages, but I do have something against not understanding team mates.

Generally I find when I am in a game with someone who can't speak English, they tend to kind of do their own thing and because I (or others) can't talk to them they don't know things a team needs (Like guard here, or attack there, or ready for team fight, etc.) and it ends up costing the game which is really frustrating.

Another thing that often happens is someone will start bashing them and flainging out racist terms and such. I don't really get offended at anything so that doesn't bother me hearing it, what does bother me is that they enter the typical "bad mood" lowering their playing skill and just lowering moral and wrecking the team.

I am sure most have experienced this at one point or another.

Yeah all moba games have something like that except for LoL, even the ones no one plays anymore and ones still in beta like DotA2, it would be really nice if that was added in. Think of all the losses that would be prevented!

Unfortunately by posting this people are going to immediately associate you with being a xenophobe racist, happened to me when I posted the exact same thread a year ago. 100 downvotes in 2 days, and I worded everything precisely and politically correct.

Some people just enjoy frustration, I guess.

I never understood why there wasn't a chat feature that implements an auto translate.
I play Second Life now and then and the client has a feature for this. I just wonder why Riot doesn't do it for LoL, considering the various people that play this game and communication being ESSENTIAL.

I too would at least appreciate something to tag the separate languages, too many times have I lost games because someone on my team can't get over that another person does not speak english :[

Pretty much anything needed to win a match can be communicated with pings.
