Hello dear people of MKPC, I do hope you pass a great day on our game.

For those who still don't know yet, I'm the one behind the possibility to proudly represents your country, Ryubix.

And this idea came on MKPC to show us the diversity MKPC reached after 10 years of existence... By showing the nationality of every player, to see which countries and cultures we have touched... It's better represented in the MKPC Pro League and other official events.

All of this with the goal to make recurrent statistics to see which countries are best or more popular in our game.

But here the problem : since some months, many players started lying and put the wrong flags in their profile. Usually, it's because teenagers are in mode "yeah I don't like I country I want to be someone else", or just wanted a "better flag".

If at first it was innocent and not a problem in itself, it started to gets annoying and ridiculous when it was possible to freely change his own flag and username freely leading to nearly EVERYONE IN THE COMMUNITY started lying abou their countries.

Seriously, since when the top 2 worldwide came from Mongolia ? Since when half of the top players came from Africa ? Why are people who can only speak french are from countries without any relation with either France or Canada ?

Not only it show the ridicoulous mentality of this community, but only it's giving us a weird image from people coming from official game's communities, such as MKCentral, MKBoards etc...

It also interfere way too much with national statistics... Countries with no players are currently leading the countries internal world ranking because 2 people lied about coming from there ! Also, let's mention these kind of people have a unique characteristic in which they magically have a different nationality every 2 weeks, like if they where Agent 47.

I'm doing this because I find it dumb to see that much of irresponsibility in the community, with hopes people will better respect their countries...

Thanks for reading.

Bonjour, moi j'ai mis l'Argentine et le Mexique parce que c'est un private joke, y a une série d'Argentine qui me plaît, et au Mexique j'aime bien les piments, et @Urban qui n'est pas irresponsable a changé son pays. Merci de ne pas mal nous voir. Je vais remettre la France.

Traduction française :

Bonjour chers gens de MKPC, j'espère que vous passerez une excellente journée sur notre jeu.

Pour ceux qui ne le savent pas encore, c'est moi qui suis derrière la possibilité de représenter fièrement votre pays, Ryubix.

Et cette idée est venue sur MKPC pour nous montrer la diversité atteinte par MKPC après 10 ans d'existence ... En montrant la nationalité de chaque joueur, pour voir quels pays et cultures nous avons touchés ... Elle est mieux représentée dans la MKPC Pro League et autres événements officiels.

Tout cela dans le but de faire des statistiques récurrentes pour voir quels pays sont les meilleurs ou les plus populaires dans notre jeu.

Mais voici le problème: depuis quelques mois, de nombreux joueurs ont commencé à mentir et à mettre les mauvais drapeaux dans leur profil. Habituellement, c'est parce que les adolescents sont en mode "ouais je n'aime pas mon pays je veux être quelqu'un d'autre", ou veulent juste un "meilleur drapeau".

Si au début c'était innocent et pas un problème en soi, cela a commencé à devenir ennuyeux et ridicule quand il était possible de changer librement son propre drapeau et son nom d'utilisateur, ce qui a conduit presque TOUT LE MONDE DE LA COMMUNAUTÉ à mentir sur leur pays.

Sérieusement, depuis quand le top 2 mondial est-il venu de Mongolie? Depuis quand la moitié des meilleurs joueurs sont venus d'Afrique? Pourquoi les personnes qui ne parlent que le français sont-elles originaires de pays sans relation ni avec la France ni avec le Canada?

Non seulement cela montre la mentalité ridicule de cette communauté, mais seulement cela nous donne une image étrange de personnes venant des communautés officielles du jeu, telles que MKCentral, MKBoards, etc.

Cela interfère aussi beaucoup trop avec les statistiques nationales ... Les pays sans joueurs sont actuellement en tête du classement mondial interne des pays parce que 2 personnes ont menti sur le fait de venir de là! De plus, mentionnons que ces types de personnes ont une caractéristique unique dans laquelle ils ont comme par magie une nationalité différente toutes les 2 semaines, comme s'ils étaient l'agent 47.

Je fais cela parce que je trouve idiot de voir autant d'irresponsabilité dans la communauté, avec l'espoir que les gens respecteront mieux leur pays ...

Merci d'avoir lu.

Well, I never lied about my flag and I put the flag that I play and live which is in UAE. But yeah, we need to change our ways and we should never lie about  our flags in our profile, that’s just wrong so I hope we all can change our ways and put the correct flag from where you are so it doesn’t confuse anybody.

This is so stupid...Guys, Ryubix has a point. We know the nationality of the top players, sure, but if you're on the outside looking in it's just confusing. Please stick with what you know is your country, you might make a bigger impact on the community that way (taken from personal experience ;))

The worst part are people trying to actually make us believe they are from an another country, that is just dumb and useless, i also can't understand people changing their country randomly (ALTOUGH i know some just change to a random one for fun or for some reasons and then just go back like half of the top 10 did).

Seriously tho, i never changed my flag, i won't too and it's not hard to do that.

Should I indicate the flag of the country I come from or the flag of the country I live in?

Both are acceptable, since you're linked to both entities.

Ryubix You have a good point.

It is immature that they do it but at the same time it is confusing; Let's say that by chance someone pretends to be from Latin America and a user from one of those countries is going to speak to him in Spanish thinking that he also speaks the same language

Another example: As it is also confusing because if they lie about being from another country they do not take into account the different time zones and then someone can lie that he is French and you see him connected to what in France it would be 3am.

I never lie about which country I am, I admit that my country is garbage but I prefer to say it that pretend that I am from another country about which I know nothing

Your country is not "garbage". Sure, times are hard to live in Venezuela (economical crisis, "dictator" in power etc), but your country is more than that : it's a culture and history you must be proud of, because it defines from where you come from and a part of yourself in your history, and your culture.

Even though you came from a "bad" country, be proud of what you are and your culture. Don't let people ashame you.

If I go your way, I can bash my own country for it's colonization period, but instead I will focus on the good points France can offer to the world.

If people focus on the negative aspects we can't progress...

I'm not ashamed of my culture (actually I like it) only that it is currently garbage and there is nothing positive to progress
Anyway, nobody lives in a perfect country to criticize others. These are things that could have happened to any country

As a British person I have no comment on this. Okay being serious, going off history no country's perfect RHcks, but Ryubix is right. There's no reason to not be proud of where you come from, and some people don't understand that. I know a few people who have changed their flag to "fit in" but that shouldn't be the case.

To "fit in" you don't need to be from a country that's completely stupid and shows how insecure a person can be.
