Greetings guys.

 

This has been irritating me for a while now so here it is......

 

Why TF are the only flags avail to buy or purchase in this game.... Economic flags? You have two/three other really useful rows of flags that actually enhance your ship and gameplay but you offer none of these for purchase?

Am I missing something here?

Wg In customisation you offer at the moment 3 types of flag bundles which are all the same flags just different amounts. Handy offer, ultimate offer and supreme pack. ( what happened to the fags your looking for?)

 

Since 0.7.4 you now offer to buy the SAME f*%!**g flags individually for doubloons?!!! way to go on the variation WG. Stretch that imagination....also all I ever see is box collections For BB's, Yamato collection, Bismark box collection, Camo for BB's etc etc...

Yes we know you are clearly biased to the BB player base but the more you force feed me stuff I don't want the more im going to spit it back in you face (no offence) and the sour taste that lingers for a while does not make me want to promote this game in a positive way to others because its clearly biased towards the BB player base even in promotional offers. How about box collection for Fji, New Orleans or any other popular cruiser out there, start actively promoting other lines OTHER than bloody BB's in your Customisation page..

 

What about other cruiser players who  Need some different (combat) flags to actually help them fight against the BB meta you have created in this game why not offer combat Flags for purchase? you don't want my/our money because I would buy November foxtrot or india delta for my Rnl Cruisers or victor limar flags for French/jap to set those charging BB's on fire when they are pushing the cap....etc.

 

So please Consider some alternative flags and box collections for purchase for others that play this game not just you BB player base.:cap_like:

 

Thanks

 

Wolf.

Forget flags, but the Asashio and sail away in their tears.  :Smile_glasses:

They once did in the shop (as part of the more expensive packages) - I complained about that a lot and they got removed (probably not because of me tho).

Yamato collection? Might I get to know what that is? Because I'm pretty sure I've never had any Yamato collection

Oh you mean Yamamoto? Well that's a captain you can put on IJN ships, and there are 4 more lines apart from their BB line to use it on

 

Bismark collection - yeah, it has overstayed its welcome a long time ago. But apparently there still is someone special enough who hasn't done it. And what does it give? A camo? Whoa

 

Camo for BBs - you mean Normandie? The "Design a camo" contests last part (mind you Normandie was the ship that people voted for - if I remember correctly that contest could have been for any t6)?

That's a fair point but...combat flags are avail to everyone who completes missions and challenges. Having combat flags avail for purchase for everyone  is no different really is it? there still avail to all.

 But on the other hand who would bother to complete the missions if flags were avail to buy?

And why have I just answered my own question.?:Smile_facepalm:

(note to self ...don't start treads when tired and hung-over)

They're probably gone because a lot of players don't like p2w. There's already more than enough dodgy stuff in this game.

You are probably talking about Special signals which are in the bottom row and have biggest impact on players progress.

Well, the answer is simple- WG want you to play special missions / events that contain those signals. It would be to easy if they put them in Premium shop.

Its clear as days that this would bring a lot of money for WG as im sure at least 50% of player base would buy some of them, no matter by what price, but they wont do that.

Too many people complained.

 

And the difference between buying and winning flags should be obvious...

As far as I understand there are two models; Pay-to-Win and Pay-to-Progress. The latter is what you get with a mobile game where if you pay a small fee then the next level unlocks sooner or something happens at once rather than after an arbitrary delay, or if you buy doubloons to convert XP to Free-XP to get a ship sooner in World of Warships. The former is if you can buy an overpowered weapon or premium ammunition and gain some advantage, which has been claimed for some ships in World of Warships and is a constant complaint with "shooting gold" in World of Tanks.

 

So if they are trying to stick closer to a Pay-to-Progress model in World of Warships (the aforementioned ships notwithstanding) then the fact the other rows of flags "actually enhance your ship and gameplay" would be exactly why they're not available for purchase.

Combat flags should be earned, not bought

 

Play ranked, you get flags almost every rank.

Certain individual combat flags are (or were? I haven't checked) available for purchase on the premshops of NA and RU servers. Like 25x Sierra Mike, etc. Why EU hasn't deigned to do this, I dunno. I always pick signals for my containers since that's the only way to get them, so to do this also is my advice to you.

no they are not. Both servers have the same signal packs like the EU server.  While packs of only signal were available at the NA shop in the past, I always found only packs of those economic signals when I looked into the NA shop....

Completely different.. Players can complete mission and challenges without spending money. OK some like earn XP or credits are easier with a PREM account

Hmmm, there IS such a thing as Arsenal nowadays... Methinks you might already be able to buy specific signals from there. :cap_hmm:

my post is from April this year, some time before the Arsenal was introduced, and of course it was related to selling for real money.

Currently I am running out combat flags because these combat flags are extreme hard to get ingame than economy flags. Arsenal packs are quite overpriced like 12k coal for 20xflags meh... I would hope WG should bring combat flags on sale to premium store as well.

Well fire and flood flags are not that hard to farm aldough since you can only get one prize per day it can melt quickly if you play more then 10 games a day

Are you ok?

get your combat flags for coal or sovereigns or missions or ranked or just with playing the game

Or by selecting the signal containers :Smile-_tongue:

I will most likely be spending my sovereigns on the speed boost flags :cat_cool:

 

And also, one doesn't need to put 8 signal flags on each and every ship. I usually play with 4 to 6 signal flags in the upper tiers (and like half of these are eco signals anyway).

I think people who play a more limited number of different classes will find it harder to keep stock on all the signal flags.

The ones who play all classes somewhat evenly will probably not run out as easily.

I hope they won't, for the reasons Klopirat already mentioned.

 

I think using resources conservatively is actually part of the gameplay.

Hey guys,

 So since this thread started back In April and since then we have had the launch of the arsenal...I can only assume WG listened and have found a way to implement useful flags in to the game through the arsenal...

So thank you for that, this has enriched the experience overall for me and gets a massive thumbs up.

Now....how to get WG to listen about this f'ing cat situation......:cap_hmm:
