Czechoslovakia voices not realistic - feels wrong

Postby Keinutnai » Mon 29 Apr 2013 16:47

I was born in Czechoslovakia, and I am telling you. I don't feel I am playing for Czechoslovakia. I feel I play for Czech Republic after the break up!

Czechoslovak troops must speak Czech AND Slovak for authenticity! Now they speak only Czech and that's wrong! You are ignoring the existence of 33% citizens who do not speak Czech, making whole Czechoslovakia feel not authentic. This situation is not comparable to any other PACT or NATO country!

USSR uses only Russian in the high command, but Czechoslovakia uses both Czech and Slovak!







A friend of mine (a countryman), who I play a lot of W:EE asked me if in W:ALB Czechoslovakian troops finally speak Slovak. I said no. He was disappointed! He said that foreigners have no idea about Czechoslovak reality. He is right.



PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING:
In Czechoslovakia:
around 33% have Slovak as their mother tongue, learnt Slovak in school, always speak Slovak even with Czechs.
around 66% have Czech as their mother tongue, learnt Czech in school, always speak Czech even with Slovaks.

A Slovak will NEVER speak Czech, he never learnt it and there is absolutely no reason not to speak Slovak!

Czech and Slovak are almost identical languages. We understand each other 100%!
In Czechoslovakia army, everyone speaks their mothertongue as long as its Czech or Slovak

Even in Czechoslovakian movies showing the military you always had soldiers speaking Czech and Slovak. A Czechoslovak army without Slovak is like playing chess without black chess pieces!







Dear Eugen systems, please hang up an announcement at universities in France that you are looking for a Slovak voice actor, add the voice to the game and let 1/3 of all Czechoslovakia units speak Slovak.

This costs nothing and add immense immersion and realism!



PS: Czech voice actor sounds ok, but without a Slovak voice actor, it isn't Czechoslovakia we are fighting for.

Its too late, the deadline for sending in lines to the recording studios has passed. I should know, me and some other military guys have been helping them write lines for the norwegian soldiers

I asked about the same thing with norwegian accents, short answer is, if it means hiring more voiceactors pr faction it will not happen.

Please keep your opinion to yourself when you don't even bother reading my post.
It's clear you only read the title and responding without even looking at my post.

If you read my post you would know the problem are not lines, but a missing language.
And regional dialects are completely unnecessary in Wargame. One language per nation is enough.
Czechoslovakia happens to be composed of 2 nations where both languages were used officialy in the military.

no I did read it, I was just relaying info from a comparable standpoint. But if you refuse to take what I've said into consideration then thats your problem.

It is not his opinion, it is fact: he did help us with the Norwegian translation, so he knows the deadline has passed.

Besides, you've been answered about that before, there was no need doing another post about it.

I don't think it's comparable in any way. Again I say, the situation in Czechoslovakia cannot be compared to one of the other Pact or Nato nations.

I didn't say that what he said is wrong. What I said is that he didn't read what I wrote.

I have not mentioned about adding lines at all. Since he talked that adding lines deadline is over I assumed he didnt read my post.

Adding lines would not solve the problem if the reading voice actor would be Czech. A Slovak voice actor would be required.

Also, it's clear that Eugen isn't going to add Slovak in W:EE, but since W:ALB was is going to released very soon, there was no reason to think that they wouldn't fix it.
