Why Can't I Get Forums In English?

TalruneTalrune Cortland, ILPosts: 339Member

I mean I am not slow but seems I cannot get their forums on the eso site to show in english even though im signed in with EN top right chosen for english.   

 

Its mostly in German with some English titles any ideas?

    It's international forums. There is an english, german, and french I believe all on the same forum. Just choose the english titled forums.

    Yeah I was wondering the same thing. I even got an email to welcome me to the community in German! I guess it assumed since I am from the UK that I speak German -_- The logic!

    It says to create an account to choose your language. Sadly I have yet to receive an invitation code to the forums or even figure out how to pay for a sub plan.

    You stay sassy!

    A lot of peoples usernames (if you were in Beta) were different on those forums, if you were in beta or what not you already have an account there, simply go to "forgot password" and change it, instead of username use email address when you login.

     

    That's what I had to do at least to get it to work.

    When I created an account it automatically suggested English.

    About the sub plan, I got the retail box and it says that no retail game keys can be activated prior launch (doesn't accept game key, only takes early access code) and you can't set a sub plan. Basically locked out till launch day.

    Blasphemous! We fought a war so that we DONT have to speak Ze German. How dare they!

    On a more serious note, I think it may have something to do with the maintenance currently going on.

    I noticed this myself, apart from welcome messages, nothing in News is in English.

    Forums are showing a strange mix of German, French, and English.  It's actually really weird how they've effectively removed nearly all forms of official communication.  There used to be TESO forums on the Bethesda site, but they are gone.  Twitter is basically ignored other than a few blanket announcements.  The official forums don't even work.

    There's supposedly a Facebook page, but either it's not set to public or doesn't exist.

     

    Game is fun, but communication is piss-poor.

    You make me like charity
