Do I understand this right? Do the Russians get the Oleg for free? I don't speak or read Russian.

I wanted the Oleg. But buying an other tier III was a little much. But playing to get one looks great to me. Sadly not Russian. :(

 

It's still a great looking ship in that black. :medal:

As far as I heard the ship is really bad.

 

Just an other reason not to pay for her but to play for her.

Depends on what you want from a boat. I enjoy her.

Well spotted I bought Oleg for the flag it seems they can win it in a mission from 8 May on that does not look hard if the auto-translation is correct and a special with discounts etc. thereafter to celebrate the day of the victory from 9 May on well maybe we will have some of it here on EU server as well.

 

auto translated it says for me:

1.In battle destroy 15 cruisers dd's and battleships

2.Win 20 battles

3.In battle earn 50000 units base XP

Accomplish fighting tasks part 1-3 gives Oleg and a 3pt. captain and small stuff for each part completed like dcp mod. 1 etc.

All of this in tier 4-10 ships

Oleg has 152mm guns, so does not have either the rate of fire or - crucially - the benefits of BFT (+DPM) and AFT (+range) that Bogytyr enjoys because of its 130mm guns.

 

Oleg is effectively a St Louis with 4x less guns and nearly 2km less shooting range. Its a good looking ship, but not really competitive against the Tier 3 HE machine-gunners....

They are building suspension :teethhappy: at EU.  USS don't seem to have an Oleg mission but at the end of the month they have battle of Jutland flag that would look great on Brit ships as a second flag.

Again with this server-comparison masochism? I really can't summon up the motivation, myself... :sleep_fish:

 

However, I must agree with cracktrackflaks evaluation in post #12 above. The Oleg falls short of the Bogatyr in every regard except pure aesthetics - the Oleg is an even more beautiful ship than her (his?) sister!

I wish the Flags could be more historical. Give us Nation battle ensigns. Or State/County flags. Nation flags. Stuff like that. Flags for the  nations Marine Corp

I would kill somebody to have the Belgian Navy flag in game. :izmena:

 

(The only thing Belgian that ever would and could be in the game.)

While more of that would be appreciated by many, Wargaming hasn't yet found the heart to include the Kaiserliche Kriegsmarine ensign (while including the Soviet one which is actually banned in some countries, but oh well...). It appears that those historical flags are a bit of an issue for WG.

Apparently Kaiserliche Kriegsmarine ensign is banned in Germany. Its not

Its not allowed to be used provocatively in 9 states (IE waving it around at an anti immigration rally or a far right parade.) In 7 states its basically a breach of the peace and can be confiscated . Hardly banned, but it is good enough for WG..

Flags do have a tendency to stir up emotions. It's their job, after all. I can't fault Wargaming for treading softly on that mental minefield.

That must be the 10th flag this year to equip I like it keep them comming! I also don't see why the red flag with iron cross is less offensive then the white and whatever eagle stripe? And how many peepses get offended by a rising sun which is a white and red dot striped instead of a rising sun white and red dot they probably get offended by red and white striped t shirts and pyama s as well?

Are you really asking people on the internet why they get offended? :)

I might be wrong but I think that flag symbolizes the Toomb of th Unknown Soldier in Moscov.

 

That's a nice and fitting symbol to have on an international online game, then. Thumbs up! :great:
