Hello my lovely daughter Bonnie!
A wall is absolutely necessary. I’ve been annoyed about this for some time now. I have usually just gone away to do my own thing. But when one says “hi” on finding another Eve and you get a Japanese reply with 3 to 5 exclamation marks following… you know you’re not welcome.
Well, guess what? These people are CHOOSING to play on US 2 and I have a theory. I think it’s because it’s less populated and they have a stronger chance of being born into a family of their friends.
I just conducted an experiment on US 2 server. My language selections, both first and second are set to English. As I type this there are 39 players on US2. I suicided every time I was spawned as an Eve and was NEVER, not once, born to an Eve in about a dozen connects. I changed primary language to Japanese and poof! I was born to a Japanese mom. She had four more babies really quickly. I left home at 3 and found ANOTHER Japanese camp north of my birthplace. There were 6 people there that I could see as I ran through.
My entire game play tactic has now changed unless and until the mechanics are changed. I WILL grief every single Japanese camp I come across on US2. If I can’t spawn as a baby to an English speaking Eve, I will change my language settings and get born into a Japanese camp on US2 to grief when I’m old enough. The Japanese players have an abundance of servers to play on. The English speaking player base is small enough as it is. I want to play with people I can communicate and cooperate with.
Enjoy the bears!
@Christoffer - I see the answer to this as follows: one cannot be born into a server that is not compatible with their primary and/or secondary language setting. I was going to say primary alone, but that would solve nothing. I think they’d continue to populate US2 simply by changing their language settings.
