First impressions of the Russian server

Recommended Posts

So I decided to re-roll the russian server yesterday. To my amazement it was actually playable. 200 average ping is quite easy to deal with considering I usually get 30 ping on NA I felt some difference but not a whole lot to hinder my gameplay. 

 

What I noticed were a lot of people online on the Russian server. Hundreds of thousands of people. No wonder WG must me making a lot to still survive even though they are blatantly ignorant towards the needs of the masses. Russia is one of their primary markets. They have lots of servers. RU1, RU2, RU3, and it keeps going. When I logged in it selected RU4 for me.

 

So I got a T-127. I solo like 75% in it on NA so I felt pretty confident it's easy to pad winrate in it. Perhaps I wasn't really thinking straight. The third battle on RU I see a couple of people who are tooned with PZ IIJ's. Heck at least they were on my team. And then I saw them again, and then again. They kept getting on my team. xD So I was lucky in that aspect, but I kept thinking to myself how the fuck will AutismSpeaks survive here if he has to vs. PZ IIJ's on the opposite team? It's a ridiculous idea to play low tiers because seeing the PZ IIJ is not that uncommon and having to deal with them on the opposite team can be a nightmare because you really have to aim at weakspots and fire premium rounds. But anyway one of the PZ2J drivers spoke english and he was able to talk with me. He was a rather chill guy. I told him I was from NA server and he was like "hey bro". 

 

It's hard to communicate with teammates that are speaking a different language let alone understand what the fuck they are trying to say. The whole fucking garage is in Russian. But then I also came to another conclusion. If they are insulting you at least you won't get insulted by them. The Russians seem to be rather cool people. 

 

Anyway Today I encountered a PZ IIJ on lakeville. He was on the opposite team. I obviously had to load premium rounds but holy fuck is it ever op. I kept raping him but felt like I wasn't getting anywhere. I reduced his hitpoints quite a bit before another ally took him out. We ended up losing the game however.

 

So now I'm thinking to myself there's no way to survive such low tiers in RU. It's absolute chaos. the RU low tier gameplay is a bit different. There's tons of PZ 2J's and the base camping is unbelievable. Although I had a good day yesterday I felt kind of miserable today.

 

Anyway I got myself a Churchill 3. Lost 5 battles in a row and then won 3 in a row and I came to a conclusion:

 

#FUCK_RE-ROLLING

 

I think EU is a better place to re-roll. My ping is probably going to be better there, but fuck it. Now I'm glad to see people speaking spanish or saying "algum br" or saying "recluta latinos." But I don't want to fucking re-roll anymore. I know the best I'll do is turn a blue overall shitter as I accumulate 2 more WN8 points here on NA, but at least I'm established here. 

 

So anyway those who have been on the Russian server what did you think about it?

I had to play 5 or so games on RU to be able to post on the forums, but yes, the all RU client was annoying as fuck. I only played tier 1 and 2, but i cant remember much of it, just tier 2 newbies, but Russian. I didnt even bother with chat I would say you need to get above tier 5 before you start seeing any major difference in play styles.

Koreans are good at strategy games iirc, but cant really touch euros or americans when it comes to shooters. This is a perfectly reasonable and well founded blanket assumption. Obviously.

they have possibly had little exposure to more advanced tactics so to speak, since they look so isolated.

I'm honestly considering to reroll to RU to confirm the low-tier TKing, how the #REMOVE_ARTY flame wars fare on their forums, and to experience their pub meta.

Their pub meta you say?

I wonder if it legally counts as naming and shaming (your own reroll)/non-constructive spam/poasting2incite when you write an review about your experience on the RU servers? Has anyone gotten away without being RO'd for this?
