Frankly, it makes no sense.
Lithuania and Baltic Countries ARE official part of Europe.
Baltic Countries escaped from the claws of CCCP twenty years ago. All Baltic countries have already been official part of EU for more than 5 years. Its about time they are actually treated as such.
Why should Lithuania, where ONLY 8% of population speak Russian as native language(and only 5% are Russians), be grouped with Russian Federation?
Why should "distribution contracts" group these countries with Russia?
Most of people in 18-30 age group do not speak English, so the main age category for the mmorpg is already lost due to the simple fact that the targeted age market in this country does NOT understand the language.
Not to mention quite a high tensions existing between Russian people and the Baltic States.(The national poll of "national enemies" created by Russian "Press" lists all Baltic countries in the top ~5 of the list). With such *cough* emotions *cough* being propagated, I would find it hard for any Lithuanian, who would pass the language barrier, to play there.
It makes no-sense no matter how - territory-wise or language-wise you look at it.
It seems that everyone is forgetting one simple fact - Funcom did create masterpiece games, that being The Longest Journey. And with that team working on Secret World, I just don't see how that could fail.
Ragnar Tornquist > Gaute
Gaute =/= Ragnar Tornquist
Not to mention that Ragnar Tornquist = WIN.
I mean seriously, how the mind which created the Longest Journey could fail? -_-

For me the biggest blunder of mmorpg marketing will always be TOR.
Seriously, anouncing KOTOR mmorpg and then sarcastically stating that "they won't be making KOTOR III because TOR will be III, IV and all parts you would ever need"....
That made sure that I won't be playing TOR anytime soon.
