>>> Russian community giving high scores to Russian MEP
Oh, come on. That's OBVIOUS. The thing could be a huge pile of crap and some Russian editors would STILL prefer it to ANYTHING.
Not that I say Ru.Comix2 is bad - it's fairly solid. But at many places the jokes will go through only to Russian community (yes, even with hardsubs - I think I got most, but that might be because I am Slavic) and for some people the AMV Hell format just doesn't work.
It's the same as with the French who create technically mastered epic pieces (that are usually a bit empty, but awesome nonetheless) and expect the world to deem them the best, just because THEY love technically mastered epic pieces (that are a bit empty, but awesome nonetheless) ;x
Just to be fair.
