In update 2.6 we are introducing a major change to the chat feature. So far there has only been one General Channel for everyone, which might not be so convenient for every player. Thus, starting with the newest update, the General Channel will be replaced by the following language channels:
As you can see, each channel is dedicated to a specific language. You will be able to join any channel. However, keep in mind that once you join a certain channel, a respective language should be used to communicate with other players. We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that the chat rules remain the same. In other words, respect others, act properly and enjoy the game!
