I'd just like to see if it's possible at all for Riot to make a language preference where you check a box for language preference. I've been stuck in a few games where someone speaks Spanish and can't communicate with the team, or where I'm the only one who speaks English and can't communicate with the team, and other variations of having communication issues due to language barriers.

Considering it's a team game and it's hard to communicate with my team when I can't understand them and they can't understand me, I figured I ought to say something.

This would be great!
I've often been stuck in games where the players are speaking a language I don't understand.

This would be a great feature, its close to impossible to win a team game when you have no idea what they're saying

Fantastic idea.. one problem though, we're assuming they're intelligent enough to not pick an "English" preference when they don't speak English. I could name quite a few players who wouldn't express that mental capability too well.

I was just getting into a match and thought the same thing when some players started speaking a different language. figured i'd bump this because I agree!

Maybe if implemented, make it pop up for everyone in a dialog box choosing. and also add that to the signup process.

save a lot of headaches

An alternative, that I feel should be in place in a series of premade statements that auto translate into your preferred language... also they could use these for those who were in restricted chat.
