I guess I'm just in a Russian mood, but I want to know from you, do you think that Russian Bias is a real thing? Is it a joke? An excuse for bad gameplay?

You decide. Feel free to discuss in the comments.

It's a Russian game, made by and for Russians. Of course it's biased towards Russian tanks.

There are Russian tanks in this game?

 

I have seen soviet tanks, but no Russian.

There are good and bad tanks from every tier, nation and class, so I don't care if there is Russky tank stats bias or not.

 

There is no "weird" RNG, though... there is only RNG, all RNG originates at the firing of the gun and is the same for every tank, player, team and battle.

Russia was the core of the Soviet Union, and it was often referred to as Soviet Russia, so in a way it is Russian.

A technicality I suppose.

The Russian tank philosophy and designs were some of the first to incorporate sloped armor at decent thickness and have all around decent stats but never excel in one thing it's honestly just an excuse for poor players to use when they try to shoot 45 degree plus armored plates and bounce and scream OP because " it's what everybody else says" 

 

PS:Kv2 is a terrible tank.

So funny.

 

When Fighter Ace was Russian everyone said the Russian planes were UBER.

 

When we got bought by a Japanese company it was Japanese planes that were OP.

 

When it was brought back to American shores all the US planes were superior.

 

This poll makes me laugh...and laughing is a good thing.

ABSOLUTELY is REAL.

It is only logical as well.

 

* Belarussian Company

* Most Customers are russian

* Russian vehicle glorifying

 

* Mocking of Axis powers, and not including

   any axis Tanker Ace Hero awards.

 

* Medals are pained over with destroyed German vehicles,

   with russian ones standing on top, Game art in General is like this.

 

* Finnish material lacking from ' game '

 

* Russian vehicles get the most ' lucky ' with the hits.

* Corridors in ' game ' favor russian vehicles.

 

I could continue this list for very long.

But you do see enough already.

 

Such is the truth.

 

 

It is ' understandable ' that Wargaming does this, but it is STILL wrong.

However, I do really like this ' product ' and wish that its future is long.

 

Such is this, my friend.

An honest question: can you name any vehicles produced by Finland to be introduced in the game? I just don't know of any, and would like to know some.

Iconic StuG III with Log spaced armour as a premium

in the German tree would be sufficient for me.

WITH FINNISH MARKINGS.

 

Some captured and modified soviet vehicles by my ancestors

in German tree are sufficient as well.

 

But Wargaming refuses to realize IMPORTANT history.

Ok, but did they PRODUCE any vehicles for the Finnish military? Not captured, manufactured.

Oh now don't you start we all know you are a german fanatic to be quite Frank historically the german tanks were only decent in a more defensive oriented situation due to lack of reliability and historically slow turret Travers on a majority of early german tanks and even mid year ones.... Also to be fair Germany lost the war badly and was forced into a total surrender it's not like glorifying a loss of of a totalitarian government is bad or anything... it's a game and no matter what nation you play they all have their strengths and for someone that plays the e25 as much as you do I wouldn't expect you to understand.

No, unfortunately the situation in Finland was harsh

and there was VERY little resources and equipment.

 

Yet my brave ancestors were able to

drive soviets away from our lands.

The people that designed, build and used those tanks were more than just Russians. 

 

Heck the leader at the time as not even russian.

This is important as we already have too many clones in this game. The only specific tank I can think of is the BT-42, which is a modified captured RU BT series tank with a massive howitzer.

That would explain the lack of any Finnish vehicles. Maybe as a premium, but I actually don't see a distinctly Finnish vehicle being added anytime.

 

And Classics, try not to deviate, buddy. I know it's hard, but I would rather not have my topic Locked on his behalf. So many others have...

Finland definitely has a great military tradition and has fought the Russian bear with great elan over the years, but in no way would it be considered one of the great tank building nations.  A Finnish premium in the German tree, maybe, they did it for the Hungarians, but the Hungarians actually produced the Turan.
