Personally I hate all the fake tanks. Getting rid of the Panther turret on the IV and the silly gigantic pencil gun on the Panther would be fine by me.

I like the game for what diversity it has, if they go too far that will be greatly diminished.
I wish we could address this, propaganda, and the subtlety with which the current Russia works, but aside from those 'casual' spies who were caught and got kicked out in 2010... it's just so easy to dismiss.

I've briefly studied the history of the Soviet Union, how it got its messages across to its people, and what organization Putin worked for, and under whom, back in the day. I'm not sure that anything that comes out of there, now, isn't part of a system designed for goals outside the country.

But then we have enough issues here anyway. No sense in languishing on the Russians or Chinese when we aren't addressing concerns here... Might as well just play the game, and do as I did - give in and play Russian tanks (because Russia has always had the best equipment! (comrade!))

The clan [RBA] is hereafter KOS to me under all circumstances.

Played a match with a platoon of three of these guys.

One of our arty fires a shell, hits an RBA type, and says as much in chat.

The other two RBA then hunt me down and kill my T-44.

Then inform me that I shot their girlfriend or something, and I needed to die.

Ammo restock cost: Zero credits.

So yeah, I will probably be the subject of some complaints in the next few weeks...

I quit until 8.0 is out.....all the good players are on the test server raising the population of idiots on the live server to a level I can't deal with. I haven't had a good match all day thanks to stupid teams.

I think that's just normal weekend morning participants in random battltes.
I rarely play above tier 5 (premium tier 5 tanks only) in daytime hours, weekends especially.

Tier 6 or above plays only near 7PM EST or later.

Another one down to the wire, less than 1 minute to the end of battle, finished up the last enemy for the win:

I've been playing the test server. It's full of Ruskies! I really like 8.0, until I get pushed around by heavies that is.
