Is it a lesser quality game on the RU server?

Pricing is regional and based on multiple economic factors (and in the case of cross region purchases when you actually go to pay, i.e. being located in the EU but playing on NA and buying something on the NA store, may also include conversion fees). The only way to get RU prices is to buy the item or bundle on the RU shop for the RU server.

It isn't a lesser quality game, it is just different. I have played on their server and in general they have a charge in and brawl mentality with the better/smarter players hanging on the outside edge of the brawl.

The median income in Russia is $23,000 where for the US it is $63,000. They have far less to spend but with their server having the largest population they can sell a reduced prices and make it up on volume.

Where do I select the RU pricing scheme on the NA server?  

Feel free to go buy stuff at the N / A  premium shop in Australian dollars then come and complain about the price.

Your only chance is to create a new account on RUssian Server. The pricing difference is the reason why they don't give you the option to move your existing account to RU server. I may be wrong, but even if you move to Russia WG still won't move your account to RU server.

It's probably the same reason why rent in BFE Alabama is not the same as Manhattan.

except if you move to alabama you will have smaller rent. If you move to Russia, would you will still have to remain on US server with US prices? maybe wg would make an exception and move you (but as I understand they won't? I may be wrong though).

1 USD / 1.47 AUD
1 USD / 6.71 HRK


I will take you offer of 1.47 to 1 USD, and you can have my 6.71

The Russians prefer standard battle, and they just Yolo at each other.

Pretty much this. Certain regions have different pricing due to the economic climate of the area.

ask your friend from eastern Rus or southern Caucasus to create an account for ya

The better players hang on the edges of the furball but they do like to brawl.
