    I suspect the programmers already know, but there is a way to integrate translate.google.com into game chat and possibly into the interface with a bit of software engineering. This would allow the game to handle multiple languages without having to build support for each one independently. I have seen it used on a couple of games now and it works well enough. Some things just don't translate well, but a lot does translate well enough and I have noticed that I can communicate with far more people than I ever could before. This actually puts the burden of translation code on a completely different team. Though, to use it in ToA might require paying for it, I am not sure, but I suspect that.

    The other way, of course, is to use your own AI to learn to translate between languages it knows.

    Nice update. Regarding the PvP options, I can't remember who was asking about it in an earlier thread, but how will Raknar evolve better armor on a racial PvP or PvE server?

    I don't believe they need to kill the raknar whose body they eat, as long as it isn't their own corpse. I'll bring it up with Brax to confirm.

    Yes please. I get tired of ARK and the whole [][][][][][][] [][][][] going on when people speak korean/chinese.
