Come on, even the bottom MMO like Age of Conan has a Unicode chat, so there are no any technical problems. It's just Russians, Bulgarians and Greeks being treated like second-class citizens, despite the same $60/whatever EUR they has gained from them.

"A bigger deal than it is?" People are playing MMOs to socialize, and when you have to break your eyes trying to comprehend whatever ad-hoc transliteration your friends are using or your brain trying to type it, after having paid $60 like everyone else is a big deal. It is 2013, not 1993, and people expect a good internationalization of their software.

If it is a #1 then it is only because they've managed to sell 2 million copies for a completely unknown franchise.
