    nothing against the Russian bratushki, its fun to play against them at BG, sadly they have more bots then ever and usually its quick win for horde in Stormscale EU, the issue is when u get a team with no bots all above 480k hp with 4 moonkins that take 0 damage...fun times....

    You know, I am russian, and it's fun to kick eupopean butts(no racism and offence here)(however it's more fun to read eu battle.net crying about untargetable and unkillable russians and warriors that use stealth and aimed shot).
    What I hope for, that EU will wine a lot about botting, and blizz wil take action against russian bots, because it's ridiculous to see fishing bots, mining and herb bots, archeology bots, pvp bots everywhere.
    Can't tell anything about autokick bots, since I am ww monk, but I often react to any casting and kick caster in first 0.3-0.5 seconds.

    Sorry for digging but you do realise that some of those you linked are actually legit good players who have achieved high rankings in the past aswell (and not by wintrading/exploiting)?

    I know it's a quick fix, but if you want someone to react your text, try typing %t and target the person in the raid. Game will insert the target name. Also, you could make some macros like "%t, get the enemy flag! / иди вражеский флаг!"

    .. or something

    Just went up against a russian premade and a warrior,enh and dk were all repeatedly interrupting me before i'd even finished releasing the key to cast a spell, you could call that fast reactions or you could call it what it is.

    Russians plague the place. They do not speak English and spam you with their funny language ( I'm Romanian and to me Russian sounds really really funny, because it's what I sound like in Romanian when I'm horribly drunk ).

    Either way, they should make non-english bannable on english servers as far as I'm concerned.
    They're always like that. In all games. I've met one or two nice ones but most of the time, even if you just ask them to please speak english, they'll make "your mom" insults at best.

    When I was an admin for a DayZ (Epoch mod of the mod) server, eventually, we started auto-banning russians. They never read the rules, because they couldn't read english. They never responded to communcation from other players, because they didn't speak english. And a VAST majority of the hackers we had to ban, were russian.

    I have an overall extremely negative experience with Russians in gaming.

    Russians plauge every game there is with their abundance of insults and refusal to speak english.
    LoL, WoW, Dota, WoT pick your poison. They also seems to be the kings of cheating, not least in WoW.
    Russia isn't afraid of US dude. That's why they are sending their bombers like 60km out of your shores. Infact they give 0 fucks. They know you wont dare to touch them.

    I quickly skimmed the rest of the thread and want to point to 2 things which were touched.
    1) The reason why Blizzard implemented russian realms is not solely for language separation, it's very much economical. As you might know, average salaries are lower in Russia comparing to many EU countries. Therefore it's viable to lower the price for russians in order to get more demand, but to implement that system, it requires some methods to separate russians, so there are russian accounts, which allow to play only on russian realms. And it really worked, there was significant drop in amount of private servers. Btw, we have similar situation with Steam, russian prices seem to be about 50% of EU.
    2) Somebody mentioned that russians have same problem with latin alphabet. That isn't true. I won't be far from truth, if I would say that 90% of my generation studied english in school, most of the remaining learned german. My parent's generations seem to studied german/english at roughly 60/40 ratio and my grandparent's generation studied german. Also international labels aren't translated, by often read in russian english. My favourite example is Xerox. I was very surprised when I discovered that it actually read as Zeroks, not Kseroks (which, btw, became a name for any copier in Russia). Somehow there is just no mentioning at all in our school english classes that "x" might be read as "z", if the word starts from it. Unfortunately, it seems the knowledge of english of average russian is much lower than the knowledge of english of average person from EU (basing on personal observation).

    what you just said applies to almost all countries in Easter Europe from the ex communist block. Regrettably westerners have a negative approach to Easter Europeans as most of them know nothing about the history of the region, and I doubt if they could even point out the countries on a map. Truth is eastern European youth has good knowledge of foreign languages. Mainly English, French, a tradition left from the Tsarist Russia and the fact the French is the official language of the EU and German.

    Compared to Westerns, an average student in Eastern Europe will be fluent in 3 languages by the time he leaves high school (including mother language), can't say the same for Brits and French (lol) than again its bad to generalize so we should just show some understanding, it doesn't hurt to learn how to say Hi or smth in Russian :P

    I Play DOTA2 quite a lot.
    And i like russians, especially the language. I just cant understand it.

    Problem is, DOTA is a teamgame and requires coordination which again normally requires some sort of communication that goes above pinging and "top missing". At least when you are trying to win.
    So my question is following, maybe someone can answer it:

    Why do so many russian speaking People, that seem to speak russian only or at least no english, Queue on west-european Servers?
    Since i got only english tagged as a Preference and i get hose People in my game i must assume that they tag english as well.

    Dont get me wrong fellow russians, i dont want to deny any Servers from you, you can actually do whatever you want.
    I just dont get the mindset behind all this?

    I once saw a russian ???mage??? in cataclysm spam casting a spell with the retribution aura icon and healing himself to full every time the cast finished ;D
    Also they are the reason i pretty much stopped playing dota.
    Even though i've chosen eu-west+english preferance i still keep getting 7+ of them each game, though i don't find the not speaking english as the main problem but rather how they play, actually most i've encountered were ok/good but the way they play.... "solo-together"
