OP, I saw more Chinese players and Japanese players in Rookie Help, being told to go to the appropriate channel. The ISDs had trouble telling the difference, although it's a very easy distinction to make if you make five minutes of effort learning to do so. One young Chinese national flipped his lid when the Japanese macro was popped on him: NO / I AM CHINESE / NOT JP . Poor guy didn't realize he was 'Asian'!



yea, many Chinese, especially those from the mainland, still harbors plenty of animosity towards the Japanese. WWII may have ended a long time ago, but it hasn't been THAT long yet.

The word is ASIAN. Oriental is your freaking lamp.


I hope you know that oriental means eastern, and that the word is still used outside the US.


THIS is where the iffi-ness started. Post #22


Actually, it started with your completely overblown reaction to that post. Which still hasn't subsided.

Would it be racist if I commented that all I see is a bunch of jelly belly obese white Americans getting upset that some Asian players might be in their game. No citation needed. Just watch any crowd shots from Fanfest for the truth of my observation.

Jesus, you yanks are a slovenly bunch.

That is funny, since I am married to a South Korean woman, thank you.


I hope you've already visited South Korea - the country is freaking amazing. So developed, and the people are great. Easily my favorite place I have ever been in the world, and I've been all over six continents.

If you haven't gone yet, go now.



Sorry I have yet to visit it, will visit hopefully next year as well as North Korea, Japan and China, we are saving vacation time at the moment for an epic trip all over Asia.

Since you removed my quote I have no idea of knowing what it is that I said which was so offensive. Could you please tell me? Just so I know and will try and avoid that mistake again.

k, go back to the page an look. Im not reposting that I reported it. NOT that stupid. o/



You reported me for what? Using the word orient to describe a place and explaining the history of the word? Using the word african, american or european or calling myself white and pale? For the use of the word westerner??? I am confused.

A few weeks ago I was in a noob system with a newly rolled alt and there were a bunch of people chatting on local in Japanese.

And I personally gave a buddy invite to a new japanese player who signed up, so they are out there.

The word is ASIAN. Oriental is your freaking lamp.

AND a huge swath of Southern Asia from Northern Japan to Western Saudi Arabia and environs, including INDIA.

Another round of applause for the American Educational System at its finest.


That depends on your locale. In the UK, Asian refers to people of Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and so on origin. Since Americans seem to be getting on people's **** lately about the use of "Oriental" I am going for "Far Eastern" these days when trying to refer to someone from that area.

I kind of wish I had a japanese character keyboard.

I can say plenty of goofy / dumb things in Japanese, like "watashi wa baka!". If only I could troll them too.

"moshimoshi!"

"watashi wa baka!"

"desu."

"nan da?"

"nan da?"

"nan da?"

Damn you earthling for using the word "Yanks".

To try and get this thread back on topic, so is there a big Japanese corp/alliance yet? Do they have any sov? Any of them speaking English on these boards? Or are they not as ... unified as others and join any corp that seems nice to them?


I am always happy to meet new people from different countries and cultures.

I remember TEST went looking for Japanese recruits before we realized that the "gamer culture" over there is pretty heavy on the e-honor, and they probably would be driven to the point of insanity when they realized just what sort of group they had joined. Also, our propaganda, full of imperial japanese flags and godzilla imagery, probably wouldn't have gone over too well. heh.

If I recall, someone had found a sizable Japanese corp they wanted to approach, but I forget its name. This was a while back.

Hmm, are you saying TEST lacks honor? Lol

Well it would be cool, so far in terms of massive scale we only got russian, german, american and english corps/alliances right? As in being pretty nationalistic. The Chinese have their own server right?! Rest are too small in numbers if I am not mistaken.

My elder daughter is currently studying business, while minoring in Japanese and Chinese. She has many friends who have recently moved to the United States from that area of the world and was able to assist them as a math tutor in high school. In fact, next semester she will be spending the bulk of her time in mainland China as part of her studies.

I have never heard her mention that they were offended by the term Oriental, although the truth be told when I spoke with them I only refered to them by their correct name.

Perhaps that would be the best course of action.

Absolutely. We are a very silly alliance.

I think one event that exemplifies us pretty well is when we were blue to both Goonswarm and Pandemic Legion, a TEST bomber wing uncloaked in the middle of a battle between both groups. Everyone pretty much collectively shat themselves trying to figure out who we were there to shoot.

That whole period of "oh god everyone is blue on the ops" was pretty hilarious.
