One of my Russian friends (who doesn't even live in Russia btw) got the following message when he started up the released version of world of tanks:

Thank you for Being a trustworthy member of our Russian Community, You have been awarded the Valentine MkII tank

So Russians get a free tank but other nationalities don't? Sorry if I'm wrong about this, but this seems like discrimination to me.

I got a Sherman tank from the dev as gift. The sherman is miles way better than the valentine.

The valentine was not the russian's free beta gift tank.  Not sure what the valentine is for.  Odd

I wasn't given my valentine for starting with it in the CBT, but I did get the sherman (which looks pretty awful, extra armor in exchange for the shitty 75mm, no 76 or howitzer.)

Exactly, why would you even care? That tank is not even really effective, just like all other premium tanks (except the premium pre-order heavy tank). And I doubt that this is discrimination, probably he took part in the Russian beta, simple as that.

Well I find it really inappropriate and almost couldn't believe things like this actually happened in an official worldwide released game. So I wondered if it actually was true.

And what are you gonna do now? Sue Wargaming.net for discriminating? You people are so pathetic that it's getting a bit funny.

We got a father's day special while the europeans got nothing. I'm sure Wargame.net is a bunch of discriminating morons. <_<

This probably roughly translates to.  Thanks for not being like those wanks on the US forums where every third thread is complaining about arti, every fourth is complaining about the matchmaker, and every fifth is Russian bias rants.  :P

Sadly, that's probably true.  Though I think your estimates are a bit optimistic.

You don't seem old enough to be playing this game, by your writing style at least.

ESL mean anything to you?  If you don't know what that means you should probably STFU.

This sounds like a message given to a community contributor.

Where is the proof?  How do we know this isn't a troll?

Yes, it may very well be.
