I can’t say I lose BGs to teams with Cyrillic names all the time, most of the time it’s 50/50, never less, sometimes they win more. But it’s my experience, if you have another - ok.
All the time ppl see Cyrillic names they seems like on auto-pilot start talking that it’s a pre-made, even when there is no clear sign of it. If you don’t understand - you can still see the difference between letters, and with this - see that there are different servers and a lot of them.
Yes, I’m sure that sometimes there are pre-mades, but not for more than 5 ppl as game system allows. Same pre-mades sometimes happen in any other language. Maybe it’s really the contrast of letters effect - Cyrillic is so different that it stands out…
But here is something that almost shocked me:
I joined BG after it has started and found myself 1 with 39 Cyrillic names around me. Pop up showed up asking me to join Voice chat - and ppl were talking, like - without screams or anything - just talking and coordinating.
I asked them if they were a pre-made and that I never hear anyone talking in a random BG, in response I got - “No we just like talking and it’s faster than typing.”
Needless to say that Horde got stomped in that match without any hope of doing something. And it was probably the easies game I ever had in Epic BGs.
Inspired by it, for the next two days I was asking ppl in BGs - “Hey! Let’s try to coordinate in voice? You don’t have to speak if you don’t want to, just for faster overall coordination”.
Worked once, and it was 1 person. The responses I got were … starting from “Why should I listen to you if I don’t want” to “Who made you a leader”. Never tried it again after that.
That one person who joined - was a German player, and he told me that it happens from time to time on a all-german teams, they have no problem with it anywhere - in Arenas, BGs, Raids, Dungeons.
So maybe this ability to communicate to each other faster - is the main reason for all these roflstomps ppl are complaining about. Players are using something provided by the game, how unfair it must be.
Well, that’s just my experience with communities of different languages.
