Just a question out of interest. In what language do Dutch players play this game?

I'm just curious since there's no Dutch dub or text for the game. I could as well ask the same for other countries but I've seen a lot of Dutch people crossing my way recently and I started to wonder.
Although I'm from Germany I'll play everything on English just like every other game.

    Where's Flemish on the list?

    I am going to take a wild guess, but given that area of the world speaks a good deal of English, they just go with English since it is like the original language of the game.

    Then by that logic why isn't Frisian on there as well? Or Brabants? Or Achterhoeks?

    Good question.
    I was not aware of those specific dialects, but if I were to hazard a guess it would be they are not spoken by a high enough percentage of the overall population.
    Much like Cajun wouldn't be listed on a list of languages spoken in the United States, but Spanish, Chinese, and French would be.

    I think the OP is asking which of the available languages Dutch players have GW2 set to use. The only languages the game lets you choose are English, French, German and Spanish, so no Dutch dialects would be on the list, no matter how many people speak them, because they're not available for GW2.

    I'm not going to vote on their behalf (especially since they might have already voted) but all 4 Dutch players I know well enough to have had this conversation have the game set to English, either because of the available options it's the language they know best or because the game is developed in English and they assume the original will be better/more accurate.

    English 99% of the time. And those who don't understand English generally just try to figure it out without reading/language.
