Not true.
Wargaming is a Belorussian company.
If you want to say Russian bias, explain the IS-8 which is the worst tier 9 heavy tank in game.

Fact is just about every tank in game are better than their real life counter parts.
Also the most OP vehicles in game are T57 heavy and Foch 155 which are American and French.
The only Russian tank that is truly OP is the KV-1S (which will get nerfs soon), and maybe the ISU-152.

I definitely feel its much easier to grind Russian tanks than others.

i know it is belorussain registered company.
there is a reason i say it is russian. trust me. examples you give are exceptions that just confirm the rule. dig deeper in stats.
the game is just made in the way that russian are best germen are worst everthing else is between with some exceptions here and there so they can be given as refutation when ppl whine.

I don't agree german tanks are bad, i have the same stats in almost all tanks regardless of which nation they are. It depends a lot on your play style, in my case, i don't like Russian tanks and i can't seem to make them work, IMO they don't suit my play style. In fact my highest performing tank (and funnier) is my Jagdtiger, which everyone suggest it's a POS compared to the other tier 9 TDs.

I have bounced off an ELC while using JT, I am pretty sure the shell fired by the JT is larger than an ELC. Grille upgraded is probably one of the best arty I have used.

well the fact you have fun with germent's doesnt chage the fact they are made inferior.
yes they have been imporved a lot with 8.8 but they are still inferior compared to others.
compare jt guns with obj 704 guns (dmg&pen) go up to russian tree compare gun dmg to same tier td from other nations.
you use xvm right? pay attention on how jt's dmg deviate whitin dmg range and on how obj 704's dmg deviate. with my jt most of times my shots was whitin average and below average dmg while obj 704's dmg was most of time above average.
we have discused this before.

edit:
Grille upgraded is probably one of the best arty I have used.
ya but you need 7k+ to get it upgraded and that with current mm is pain in the ares.
i think wargame morons just forgot to fix it after they moved grille from t3 to t5.

I still like both, even if they are statistically weak. And then you get games like this:

Sit back and snipe, watch some Youtube videos, and grind Russian tech tree (to KV1)
