    Those guys talk in ru-community that they are representatives of Portalarium in Russia, CIS, China, and will make localization and run russian server: http://bs-gp.com/en/main.html/?go=3, https://vk.com/sota_ru

    I never heard about plan to rus localization and servers, and pretty sure that it is not true, so would be great to hear some words from Devs.

    In Russia, players do not play SOTA, SOTA plays you!

    Да, хотелось бы, чтобы был добавлен русский язык, а то немного трудновато переводить такие стены текста. А ошибка
    в интерпретации описания квеста может привести к печальным последствиям) Нужен какой то издатель? Я так понимаю..
    Какие сложности у них на пути локализации? Может быть тут политический подтекст? Хотя сомневаюсь.

    Please answer the question on localization & publishing SOTA in Russia. Are such plans exist at all?

    To the best of my knowledge, the only planned languages at this time are German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese (and even for them the localization process is temporarily paused).

    Devs never excluded expanding support for further languages - like russian, chinese or japanese.

    Just remember that the translation would be performed by players volunteering for the effort.

    Да, есть определенные политические последствия, особенно когда вы запутались с нашими выборами! Просто шучу, я думаю, что России просто жесткий язык для локализации для небольшого разработчика игр, как Portalarium. :)

    You should really stop spreading propaganda here. Neither you nor me knows, which politician is lying, could be even both. The time I would trust a politician or politically controlled institutions without any proof are gone.

    LOL you clearly did not pick up on my sarcasm OR read the rest of what I wrote.

    Hence the reason I said, "Просто шучу" which means I'm just joking or I'm kidding.

    Well, my Russian is a little bit rusty after 25 years of very limited use, so I confirm, that part went by uninterpreted. ;)

    No worries my friend, my Russian is pretty rusty too so I went back after I read your post to make sure I didn't say anything inappropriate! :)

    When I was in Paris during college I went dancing at a club with a girl I just started dating. I thought my French was pretty good and I said to her, "Tu es bonne!" in reference to her dance skills. What I should have said was, "Tu es bonne une dansuer!" because my initial statement basically referred to her prowess in the bedroom, lol. Thankfully, she had a good sense of humor and explained to me my "faux pas". :)

    I really hope that there will not be a special Russian server.
    And also I hope that those who are playing now localization will not be affected.

    In this top https://vk.com/topic-95447298_32249143 on russian site localizers talk about Russian servers.

    All russian community wants to receive comments from Portalarium.

    I doubt they'll ever split servers based on language. The idea of a single shard is actually defended teeth and nails against ideas of separating different groups - like PVE/PVP, in the legacy of Trammel/Felucca. I'd be very surprised if they'd do that for language groups.

    From Starr: "The current plan is still one server for all our players worldwide. If that changes we will let everyone know but that is still the core of our experience."
