It would make sence as the devs barely care about EU and its community.

And in the RU server ranked is easier, and in the RU community you can actually have your voice heard to wargaming.

 

Im not sure if its worth the money but i so far only have 10k battles so i have a long way to go untill i get tired of this game. (ignoring my oldest posts)

In what way is Ranked easier on the RU server? 

How do you know that WG listens to Russian players anymore than they do to EU players?

not a difficult language really. what baffles me, is when people speak english like it's theird fifth language, when it's literally one of the easiest languages that exists, while my native (latvian) is among the hardest languages. one of the more easier languages is Chinese, since it has no grammar.

I learned English when I was in 5th grade (without school). Deffo easy.

Was learning Russian but gave up. If I tell you why, I'll get kicked out of the forums.

 

Chinese? Heard it was one of the hardest while Japanese, the easiest.

In fact, all you need to do, is to know the pictograms (or however they are called), since (as far as i understand) they make up the words or meanings, much like in hieroglyphs in the Ancient Egypt, etc. (except in that case, the supposed sentence/ word was visualized as a sequence of images of animals, objects, etc.

Russian isn't that difficult, but you need to be a bit familiar with Slavic languages as a whole (includes Polish and the balkans).

English is a very easy language on a basic level, which is why it is so useful for business.

Where it rapidly becomes complex is in avoiding basic pitfalls of illiteracy ("please copy the memo to Jim and I ), tenses (one of my team who is German can never get her head around these when writing notes of meetings), and oddities of pronunciation (Marylebone, Beauchamp Place, Belvoir Castle, St John, etc)

Then there is nuance

And then it is nugatory to mention that you have the stupendous vocabulary which stretches for hundreds of miles

To quote George Mikes:

"Remember that those five hundred words an average Englishman uses are far from being the whole vocabulary of the language. You may learn another five hundred and another five thousand and yet another fifty thousand and still you may come across a further fifty thousand you have never heard of before, and nobody else either."

It becomes complex, if you make it complex. Just like with life.

It's kinda funny how a big part of what can make English complex is the pronunciation of French loan words.

Skill4ltu, well known WoT streamer, moved from EU to the RU server. If a player of this level finds EU servers frustrating imagine the poor average Joe.

 

As he said, the overall quality,balance of the teams is much better and that makes the game less frustrating.

 

Let's hope the EU servers die out so they move the accounts to the RU or make an option to be able to move your account to another server,

which will probably involve real money transaction as this is WG....

Nothing has to do with it besides the average skill of the playerbase.

 

We've got far too many Steves compared to RU.

i get your point with this topic, but i honestly think russian language is one of most beautiful in speach i've ever heard. although alphabet they use made it a hard to pass barrier for me, as i tried once to learn in the past.

So maybe a skill based MM, nothing to sophisticated just have a que for the red and blacks and a que for all the others, would help the game a lot.
