Greetings,

I participated in the closed alpha, beta and the beta weekend back in the days. I got the flags for both the closed beta and the beta weekend and their corresponding enblems.

 

But I only got the Alpha-Tester enblem, but not the flag neither the Iwaki (and yes I should have 100 battles done back then).

 

I chatted with the support now for over two weeks, send them the picture of the enblem, the link to my forum profile, which even has the Alpha Tester title and still my ticket got closed (without the possibility to re-open it) and they said that they couldn't do any change (not even the flag).

 

I'm now asking here if someone had a similiar story or a idea how to continue now?

Sorry if my english sounds a bit rough.

 

Best Regards,

Panzer52

@Panzer52

So, Captain,  we checked and, unfortunately, you are not on the reward list for Ivaki Alpha and the flag. If I remember correctly, to unlock those rewards you needed to play at least 100 games during the Closed Alpha. So maybe you just didn't meet the requirements.

Thanks for the update! I thought this requirement was just for the ship? As the wiki states (https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:List_of_Special_Flags) that pacipating in the alpha (without a special amount of battles) was the requirement for the flag.

 

If I may ask one more question, my forum profile has 101 more battles than the on the my overview page, where are those coming from? As they are not from the closed beta (where I had 110 battles) so could they be from the beta weekend or alpha?

 

The wiki pages says that 100 fight were needed during alpha or beta weekend to qualify for the ship.

Oh, interesting that you could check so quickly.
I had a similar request a few months ago, and when I contacted support about it, they said it would be too long to check, so wouldn't bother doing it.

 

Could I bother you to check for me as well?
Thanks in advance

Sure Captain, 

I will try to give you an answer as soon as I can. (It might arrive tomorrow at this point, though.)  😊

Honestly, answering that quickly to this thread, and taking the time to check for me as well is already fantastic.

Thanks, and have a nice evening!

Hi Captain, we checked;  unfortunately, you are not on the list of players having the rights for the flag as well. 😊

Huh, I would have put money on me having more than 100 battles during beta weekends.
I guess I would have lost it !

Thanks for checking !

I think the qualification for the alpha (the OPs request) and beta (I think you were after that) are different.

 

I seem to recall that for beta you had to be active over a certain period which was towards the end of the beta.  So, if you were active from the start of the beta but not at the end you missed out.

Could the requirement for the alpha flag (https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:List_of_Special_Flags), please be confirmed? Just to check if the wiki is right and if not to correct the statement?

Hi Captain, we checked, but we couldn't find more specific data about it. It is an event of 5 years ago. As mentioned before, though, we checked the list of the players who unlock the flag as a reward and you are not part of it. I am sorry I cannot help you further.

Sad to hear, but thanks for the very fast and friendly support! :)

Jeepers, Panzer52, you began play in WG games in 2012? Was WoWS even in Alpha in 2012?  I thought 2014 was when it began? Only 819 battles? Have you been AWOL from WG products?

& you query where is your Alpha flag & ship in 2021?

I sympathize that you did not get an Iwaki Alpha but, man, it sure looks as if you just didn't play enough early enough (not to mention barely playing at all over 5+ years).

Myself, I got into Alpha play right at it's end & I made SURE I played the required amount of battles for that reward ship (& I did the same thing for the Beta  reward ship).

 Seems to me, Panzer52, you just 'blew it' by not playing enough & not reading the requirement for the reward ship(s). (my apology if I seem harsh, but the reality is what it is)

I never said I played Wows in 2012. So please don't accuse me of untrue statements. It seems you checked my profile, where stands that I joined 2012. This date is the global wargaming account. I played World of Tanks several years before Wows came out and then joined the alpha there.

 

My goal was to get a clarified answer about the requirement for the flag, not the Iwaki Alpha and I got it which I am thankful for.

 

If this topic doesn't relate to you I don't get why you post anything here just to do it. Please research next time a bit more before you accuse a person that you don't know something about and it is also quite presumptuous to make a statement about my playing behaviour without knowing anything about my life.

 

Best Regards,

Panzer52
