In this image you can see that you can use the arabic alphabet in chat(You can also use Russian and Greek alphabet) . Now my problem isnt that you can use arabic alphabet but people who knows me well know that I communicate with my friends in Teamspeak because its impossible to use hangul in chat (the korean language) but it would be very usefull if we could use hangul in chat since not everyone can always use voice chat at all time. Now I find it very funny that a middle east language is enable in chat but not the original language of the game . This thread is not about complaning but I would like to know what was the reasoning behind the decision of that. If you're going to disable Chinese / Japanese / Korean .

Is simple EU/NA don't have Korean implemented because eu/na ,all other languages you put there are in/or around eu/na.

Honestly I'd love to see the game utilize the available language packs in windows for text/typing. Doesn't have to be game translation, just the ability to utilize those languages in the chat box would be very welcome. Most just show in unicode format. Same as OP; Not a complaint, just a hope/suggestion :)

Additionally I'd love to see the ability to adjust fonts. ^_^ 

Actually, this might be worthwhile in the suggestions section.

Possibly encoding issues, or they where left out because they assumed western withdrawal (most Asian countries hate mingling with people outside the Asian Pacific) so no need to bloat your game with extra character sets.

character sets are pretty large data wise, So one would assume it wouldn't be useful nor productive to have 300+ languages flying around in chat.

Prolly cause they want you to play on KR server. Vast majority of people who know the language are actually in Korea. Since NA/EU version is best version, can't have people leaving KR to play here.

That doesnt even make sense T_T It would make sense if the only available language was english but that's not the case. Also they dont have to change anything in the coding its already there T_T but it was removed for some reason. Also i don't know how you can speak on behalf of the korean community and if you didnt know there are koreans in america we're not alien we dont go around undercover .... we're here and we're not hiding and people know it .

Yeah, I don't get why they blocked out those languages as an option in chat in the first place. I mean, I get that this is NA/EU but I'm sure there's a considerate amount of Korean/Chinese/Japanese/Thai/Etc who live here and play on our servers that aren't able to communicate well because of this. Even if I'm wrong and there isn't much of a player base who need to use these languages, I still don't see a reason for it to be blocked. It's just kind of ironic because it's a Korean game.

Reason is very simple. They have agreed that they do whatever is possible to keep every regions players playing the local version of the game. Situation where players would move globally to the version of the game they see best at the moment is not good for the publishers.

I never said a word about the Korean community, i also never said there wasn't any Koreans the United States. 

type in chat: { こんにちは世界 } instead of that you get squares. this tells us that the language is not blocked, it simply does not exist. it also could be the font being used does not support it.

In most games you can edit the font used via the INI files, i do not know if this is true for BDO.
