Before you read this, it's worth noting that I'm a fan of this game and appreciate all the work various developers have put into it to get it where it is today. There is something I can't wrap my head around though, and that is as to why there's 2 versions of the game out there (both this and the German version)?
Correct me if I'm wrong but it'd be a much better use of time, servers, and be better for the community of both games if there was only one version (the German one) and the devs for this version focused on the English translation of the live German site instead. That way we'd get all the features of the German game as they come out, and translations would be much easier and quicker to do than fully developing a new coded version like they are now.
This is assuming that the current devs of this version are a part of the dev team for the German version (which I assume they would be or you'd be massively infringing in rights and all that jazz)
