You must understand 1 simple thing - at least 70% of russian MOBA players are children about 14-16 years old. They are extremely aggressive and most of them do not speak english at all.
It's just so, you have to accept it.
And, to be honest, most of russians don't know english or any other foreign language. It's just useless to them.

I don't like this change too..
Since it changed in lobby almost no one chooses lane and then game is full of discordinated players who either don't speak in chat or speak in russian.. hard to do a team game like this
At first I was affraid that I was the only one unable to adapt with the russian people...
I'm a bit relieved to see this wasn't the case just for me .
On a side note I'm really sry to hear you guys have to go throw the same situation as I do ;/

First of all I'm not saying the merge was the perfect decision, however as of right now, the EU scene needed a boost in players, and the RU was the logical server to merge into ours.
The possibility of re-splitting it, in due time I feel could be an option, however I don't think it would be a positive option. If a community wants to be an accepting and open one, the first thing it needs to do is find a way to accept this change, and see what he or she can do to improve in this change.
Translators have been suggested, as well as smart pings. However people can freely access translators on google and save a couple words like, "go" "no" "mid" and such, to help you communicate in simple ways the same way a lot of people in other european countries that are a bit less english speaking.
"In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil's might
Beware my power--Green Lantern's light!"
Hell, I'm from Brazil and I can tell a few stories... None good either, during my somewhat long experience playing fps, rts, moba and others these last 14+ years Brazilians banding up in lobbies or mmo servers are rarely decent(The ones that are usually can communicate at least basic information in English and most of the time you rarely notice they're from Brazil.) and the source of the problem is rooted in multiple cultural reasons and there really is no fix to it. It's not just a Babel Tower issue either, it's common to see lot of unprovoked xenophobic insults being hurled around at foreigners and general trolling from Brazilians, also anyone who speaks English ever is a dumb north-american and if you speak portuguese you're automatically their best friend.
The lolbr is indeed a weird creature, I do believe it all comes from a deep inferiority complex regarding international matters and the fact that computers got really really cheap around here a while ago(In fact there was a much maligned "digital inclusion" program from the government to give tech to the lower classes but let's not get political) and no one ever learned how to deal with them or any english. It's probably similar in Russia and I fear there is no solution other than sending the Russian speakers to their own servers, everyone will probably be happier even if the queues are long.
