Ok let me get straight to the point. Apparently I won a prize that I didn't know about for 5 months and I was checking RU forum few weeks ago  around May 10th to give my upvotes for the Reticle contest. But I totally didn't expect an massage from Tarki_Tai

First massage as translated

 Good afternoon!
Your modification has entered into the official modpak (version 0.5.2.0).
As a thank you and congratulations to the new year, as promised, your account is one of the following ships will be charged.
Tirpitz, Varspayt, Diana, Tachibana, Kamikaze or Kutuzov.
I look forward to your choice in the PM!

 

So been trying to get this resolved for the last 3 weeks, going back and forth to both forum. Slowly waiting. But I was finally able to get her today 0.o

Варспайт transliterates to Varspayt. I imagine you're correct. The Russian Wikipedia calls Waspite "Уорспайт" which transliterates to Uorspayt (which, when properly spoken, matches the English pronunciation very well).

Варспайт is Warspite (phonetic into cyrillic alphabet).

 

Edit: well, almost phonetic - it's more into how people usually pronounce it over there than the actual pronunciation in English.

Grats on the epic win.

 

Nice banner around your battle button btw. The only bad thing I see in that Kutuzov is the captain. Starlight Glimmer... booo hiss!

Well just to make sure we're on the same page, вар- rhymes with 'car' while уор- sounds like 'wore'. At least provided we can agree on how 'car' and 'wore' are pronounced—my perspective is more or less from a mainstream North American accent with a good share of Canadian raising. I don't think I commit /æ/ tensing, but maybe I do?

 

Hmm. This is probably too much depth for an off-topic tangent.

So what contest did you win on the RU?!  Really cool to see the cross-region work done here, especially after seeing so much unwillingness to migrate accounts and the like :)

Yes, pretty much. The whole thing is kind of similar to pronunciation of IJN ship names in English (i.e. Kongo / Kongou) - people change pronunciation so that it rolls off the tongue easier and common spelling follows that. In quite a few cases the change is considerable for no other reason than "it's easier to say it this way".

There was no contest. But there is an Official Modpack on the RU forum that included my Rainbow crosshair long ago when the modpack first appeared.

Official modpack link

But I didn't think much about it to much since I didn't mind, but I didn't know they were giving out prizes for being in the Official modpack. So apparently they sent a massage to me on the wrong forum, it almost like they didn't know what server I was on. :P

Yep.

 

Funny thing is, the RU dev didn't write the name correctly. Should have been "Уорспайт",  not "Варспайт".

May I ask why you picked the MK?

 

I can't speak for MR, but s/he already has Tirpitz and Kutuzov is the only other expensive high-tier ship on the list.

I used the rainbow cross hairs when I first started playing(not into MLP but I didn't care), I liked using the colors to help me lead ships with timing and what not. Glad you got something out of a mod that I'm sure many people used.

Should have, but spelling (and pronouncing) words like warcraft, warlock, warspite, etc. with "Вар" is so common that it wouldn't surprise me if this stuff made its way into the dictionary by now. :)

 

 Prime example:
