I'm curious... 

 

Do any of you guys speak russian or are in any other way in touch with the russian forums meta and it's ongoing discussions? 

 

I can imagine them being happy with new russian tanks, and I don't blame them since their russian and russians are in general quite patriotic. But do they agree with the implementation? Like how they they feel about the tier 9 diseased t10 twin? the 430U etc. 

 

This is interesting because let's be real here, it's only their feedback that matters since they have by far the largest playerbase.

Well they didn't like the 263 removal and WG still ignored them.

I would recommend paging our friendly neighbourhood Russian, but he's already provided the answer. By 'ordinary players', he probably means the forums.

I really find it funny that the majority of Russians (streamers, youtubers, ordinary players) aren't excited about the upcoming patch, they don't like new HT's that much, they're not screaming OMAGAD STRONK TENKU RASHA as you might think.

 

 

​I wouldn't be too sure that WG makes WoT for Russians only. They get special treatment at times for sure, but ultimately I doubt they really listen to feedback. The major difference between EU and RU (at least on the forums) is interaction. EU is kind of a half-baked community concept, with communications on issues mostly going as far as "Oh no! :(:( I'll forward the message. But I don't know anything. Well, it happens. ;);) " (not verbatim).

 

One could argue that WoT in some ways 'fits' better with the supposed Russian meta of fast gameplay, of course, and thereof EU gets the impression that most changes are bad. Kinda doubt it's like that, but even if it was I would not expect Wargaming to have the mind to actually tell us as much. :P

If you are curious just go to the russian forum and use google web translator... works good enough, read most well rated comments and you will get the idea. To spoil it for you - 95% of the times if EU server whines its the same on RU

This time I paid more attention to the reaction of the RU community. First of all, I have to say RU community is quite constructive. Both in terms of developers and players.

This is their main feedback thread, feel free to use browser translation, it works quite well: http://forum.worldof...iscuss_on_forum

It has 72 pages at the moment and each sub-topic has it's own thread.

New HT's: http://forum.worldof...e=forum-ot-9-22

New meds: http://forum.worldof...e=forum-ot-9-22

TD changes: http://forum.worldof...e=forum-ot-9-22

They also use polls and once again, people are constructive, they don't spam irrelevant threads like here, they only post where they need to. Our main feedback thread has 3 pages, but many forumites felt the urge to create their own thread.

TLDR:

- New HT line is meh to many players, they find it lacklustre in one way or another.

- 257 is considered to be unbalanced by some and promotes people to discuss ways to counter it. Quite a few requests to buff the roof cause Russian players will use weak spots more often.

- 263 changes are not welcome, see the polls.

- 430U is alright.

No drama, no excitement, just another patch from WG, people aren't in love with the company either btw.

p.s. Cheers Aikl.

There is a good point that really people should be posting about 9.22 in the public test feedback section rather than the gameplay section as that is where WG gather up the feedback.

 

To be honest, aside the 257, I king of meh about the whole 9.22 patch, find the heavies quite meh, don't like the 263 changes and find the 430U quite meh. So i'm thinking similarly to many of the Russian players it seems.

705's are a bit "meh" tbh. 257 has that IS-3 strip above the gun that most can overmatch. So head on it's easy to deal with, but that side angle needs to be toned down a bit. 430U is fine, as it has the same dpm fully kitted out, as the old 430 had with 100% base crew to name one. IS-M might be a bit strong tho. But not easy to say when you only fight other IS-M's.

 

I expected less drama as they are Russian tanks. But for once, they are mostly right about them there.

It was the Russians that did scream the loudest when they wanted to "nerf" the BC clip gun that they did not ignore. Difference is now, that WG's own "tests" shows that we are wrong. I can kinda see what they were on about, as the 263 works better on tier 9 then the SU-122-54. But still. There is no real need to do it.
