Any way to choose a lobby based on nationality?

Recommended Posts

TomRHooper

I've been experiencing a problem since I started playing online - almost everyone I come across with a mic only speaks French, with a few choice English swear words.

 

I'd say the players I encounter are ~60% French, 20% American, 10% English and 10% other.

 

First of all, I would like to know why this happens. I'm in the UK and I assume the servers I join are Europe-wide rather than just UK-specific, but why is EVERYONE I get dumped in a lobby with French? I don't speak French and they don't speak English so it makes things pretty dull for both of us, being unable to communicate with each other. I'd also love to know if there's a way to choose which countries I get put with.

 

I'm on PS3, by the way.

Just curious... do French people say 'ni**er'? I'm just wondering if French lobbies are all French except for that.

Weird coincidence, I'm usually in party chat when in free roam but I was playing a TDM out of it once and the people in the lobby were all speaking french.

Nice contribution.

It seems like all you ever do is post a sh*tty picture or a video that explains nothing and doesn't contribute in any way.

Very useful, you are a great person. Keep them coming.

I have no idea why I get matched up with so many French players when I am playing from the United States. Also I don't like to generalize but seriously, EVERY time I join a race lobby and hear French being spoken I know I'm going to get rammed and spun out (more than usual). Depending on my mood I will instantly leave French racing lobbies. I know there are lots of idiot Americans but damn are most of the French on this game colossal douchebags.

As opposed to your meaningful contribution in this thread, correct ?

 

At least I was spreading the message of love. Also, that's a bit creepy that you know that I have posted a couple of pictures today. Stalk much ?

 

That being said, I get a pretty eclectic mix of nationality. Wouldn't say I came across one nationaility more than the other.

Most people I see are from Germany and that is totally fine to me because I am from Germany myself. Then I see people from the UK, US, France, some from Germany 2 and Schwitzerland, almost never from Spain. I barely hear people speaking.

Would personally be happy in a lobby where they spoke English. I mean, the Germans are usually able to muster up enough words to make sense, but the French accent is impervious even when speaking fluently. It's like listening to an American imitating a Frenchman without knowing a word of French.

I stupidly said the same thing on the reddit forum and got called all kinds of racist for suggesting I'd prefer an OPTION of language/region specific lobbies to make the interaction more interesting (as people could understand each other) and avoid the French style of play.

 

But yeah, play with French players and I know 9 times out of 10 I'll cop a bullet in the back of the head as I spawn out of a mission/DM/race/whatever - being in Australia with slightly longer lag/slower download we are always the last to respawn too :-(

People get called racists for just about everything on Reddit though.Never understood how language = race but whatever

 

I run into a lot of Spanish speakers, but mostly British/American kids who communicate in various yelps, screams, and whines.

 

Of course some of those Spanish speakers are probably American too, but you know what i mean.

I get bored of the pre-pubescent little boys squeaking obscenities all the time, so my chat is switched to crew and friends only.

You posted a sh*tty picture in my thread, so yes, I remember.

 

I usually post something that actually means something, but your useless contribution is simply stupid.

"He, he wrote about anger, so let's post a picture of anger, because I need pictures to explain things to me".

"He wrote about nationalities, lets post a youtube video with a song, so it somehow makes some kind of contribution here, I need videos to explain text to me".

 

And you're not the only one. Every 10th moron posts a useless picture in a thread to somehow say absolutely f*ck all about anything meaningful.

this way is better then having the game region locked like defiance was. (couldn't play with my american or asian freinds on that one, i think they changed it so you can now choose what region you want to play in). anyone that wants to complain about this game being broken should give defiance a go.

meh ...

 

Race is a classification system used to categorize humans into large and distinct populations or groups by anatomical, cultural, ethnic, genetic, geographical, historical, linguistic, religious, or social affiliation

 

France has cultural, ethnic, genetic, geographical, historical, linguistic and social differences from its neighbours and the rest of the world ... French is a race - just because they are white doesn't mean they aren't a race.
