From the day I first started reading the threads here on the forum, players have been saying that WarGaming is Russian. This is not true. So many forum posters blame the game's composition on assuming that it's Russian. Now, the game's first designers were from Belarus but that's like saying Puerto Rico is in the United States. Main difference here, Puerto Rican citizens can vote for a US President while Belarus votes for their own President. In essence. They are not Russian. As for WG, their headquarters is on Crete with offices in Paris and Seattle. So why do people keep saying WG is Russian?

World of Warships is developed by Wargaming St. Petersburg aka Lesta Studio located in St. Petersburg, Russia.

That's just for tax purposes. The actual main headquarters that calls the shots for the company is out of Saint Petersburg. Notice when someone like Niko Power has to pass word up the chain for an issue he always says "Ok I'll pass that on to Saint Petersburg." Or when videos are shot of game development, notice it's ALWAYS the St. Petersburg office.

Yup, same reason why the super wealthy from around the world register and flag their super yachts out of the Bahamas or some other little Caribbean island.

And if you want to get really technical, the company is technically Belorussian. The company was founded in Belarus, and had it's headquarters there until 2011.

Belarus: White Russia. They are most definitely Russian. Also, the headquarters is in St Petersburg, Russia. So, how exactly is WG not Russian?
