From what I get people do not care as much about the inscriptions themselves, the problem is the way WG has decided to introduce them. The worst part is that they decided this because of pressure they got from Stalin admireres in the RU server.

but merchants tend to sell what their customers ask for or at least smart ones do, whether or not someone longs for Stalin's return by putting on a dumb but accurate in-game decal doesn't and shouldn't change your enjoyment of the game.

In my opinion people also are attributing intentions to WG that simply might not be there. If 99 percent of their paying audience wrote WG's CEO and said we want pink pony decals then we'd probably get them. It's economics plain and simple.

The Russian server has by far the most players but barely makes a profit so it's not down to economics.
What it is down to is that with the new wave of nationalism being pushed by Putin and his crowd the Russian players can demand that all servers get the motifs knowing that whether or not WG management like it or not they have to comply or face the now official backlash from Moscow.

If it hadn't been for the dumb bastards announcing that they weren't ashamed of their past, that Stalin was misunderstood and in reality we should all be thanking him for bringing liberation to the world from Naziism then just maybe all the other servers and especially the Eastern European players wouldn't have taken it as such a kick in the bollocks from WG.

CoD2 went for historical accuracy showing the Red Army as poorly equipped and trained, now it's not on sale in Russia so WG could quite easily have said they had no choice in the current situation.
