well can't really say much on the specific matter at hand, but I can speak about national issues in general.

Since I happen to understand some polish, I know that lately a lot of anger has been vented at the romanians (presumably cuz of Kimo's thread) and I am sure, the reverse is also true.

Now I'm not sure what's up with this 21st century nationalism, but it's pretty darn annoying.

I try to take the fact that people speak in their native languages as a positive; i try to pick up a word or two. But in general I do prefer it when people speak english.
Sure I might speak serbian here and then (which is BTW WAY harder for me than english), but that's cuz the community ever since i came bqack last year (this was not the case 5 years ago for example) has been speaking less and less english and more and more in other languages.

While there is nothing wrong with that in ti by itself, you can see how people are "mistrustful" of one another due to the language barrier.
A conflict is more likely to erupt, if groups are based on languages/nationalities.
Why?
Well its simple, if one can't communicate with a certain group one feels excluded.

Maybe its different for people from small countries like Slovenia. I for example have hardly a shred of national pride in me. I don't cheer for our football team (forza italia), I know national anthems from the US, France and Italy by heart (they sound good) and I've always considered myself (especially on the internet) a citizen of the world or at least of Europe. and no, that isn't because of some deep philosophy, I just always considered that nowadays the world is what matters and not a small country (tbh RO, POL, SRB are all small countries, that's why we formed the EU, so China (CCemo) doesn't eat us alive). Plus I wanted to be an international superstaremo

We've had several instances in gpw where members from RO or SRB were at each others throats during trainings. For example all the serbians hated Kryt and "couldn't play with him", and ofc Kryt hated the serbians.
And then if one team would be say, 2/3 serbiand and if they'd win, they'd say: Serbia PWN! or smth like that
Or if kenny and kryt won they'd be like: ROMANIA!!!!
I told kenny to stop doing it and I think he got me, yet you could often hear him say: I play good wtih Kryt and one could not help but wonder if that wasn't due to a national sentiment.
Same with Hordy and Afi for example.
And then you'd have all the young serbian players saying <3 hordy and all the romanians <3 kenny.
Fagsemo
<3 yourself ffs
and if you <3 your country, fine, but don't call other people names (likey gypsies) and don't blame somebody's stupidity or lack of gameplay (or him/her just having a bad day - it happens) on their nationality.
OFC you're more likely to do that, if you don't understand what that person is saying and if you think he is cursing you in his own language.
The RO-POl tensions atm seem to be very high, I can't say what started it, but it's funny to look at it, because you literally see 2 sides simulataneously chatting and you don't even need to understand the language to feel the tension.
Majorek yesterday wouldnt play a 3v3 cuz he'd have to be in the same team with kryt and kimo for example, so I went from gjenki's and moti's team to the RO team. Go figure!

I do hope it's just the language barrier, cuz if all these people are so nationalistic, then in 10 years time when they all get to vote, we'll be having WW3emo
