First post-6.4 developer Q&A on the Russian forums

2. The devs on the Russian forums have developed a bit of a reputation for occasionally "counter-trolling" posters. Especially in their responses to questions that basically boil down to "please up this tank that I'm driving right now because I'm driving it". Sometimes it feels rude. Other times it just feels snarky, and I personally don't mind the snark from the "tech" guys (who are not in the PR department to begin with).
3. The "Happy Trails" remark. As Overlord pointed out, the literal translation of the phrase was "good luck in battle". The "emotional" meaning, however (to me, at least, and I'm a native speaker), was more along the lines of a sarcastic "enjoy", "have fun", or - the expression I ultimately chose - "happy trails". [Whereas "take a hike" is a simple pejorative, which wasn't what Storm had said.] I suppose I should have known better given THIS reaction to garden variety sarcasm.
Also bear in mind that I didn't translate every bit of nonsense, snark, and outright swearing that was contained in the player questions. Partly as I didn't have time, partly as it wasn't relevant. [The "Happy Trails" question was only included to illustrate the type of topics that frequently come up over there.] This wasn't a case of some "chan" that adds "desu" to literally every word being wailed upon by a circa-1980s Ivan Drago stereotype.
4. Anyone using any one Internet forum to make blanket judgments about any given language is, at the least, confused about this thing called the Internet. In my personal opinion.

Overlord: Yup, the topic took the wrong turn I believe.
I ask you to focus on the essence.
