Doesn't bother me. I do think it fits better if the game isn't super serious.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo John the OFM Supporting Member of TMP asks:

Namng no names, but there are now more than one purveyor of WWII gaming rules that do this. They take a perfectly good Russian Cyrillic alphabet and try to force it to read as English, using letters that "look like" what they would sound like in English. The result, INMNSHO, is bastardized words that are neither Russian nor English. They are unintelligible gibberish. On a scale of 1-10, how much does faux-Cyrillic useage annoy you?

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.
