First let me make clear that this poll isn't intended as a rant or protest for or against the Rising Sun flag.


I am merely curious whether the recent controversy over the Rising Sun flag- which can be debated elsewhere - has affected your enthusiasm for the game in any way. your reasons are your own.


1. Has your enthusiasm for the game been lowered? do you think WG handled it badly? maybe you refuse to play warships with politically correct but unhistorical flags. and so forth.

2. is your enthusiasm the same? can't see what the fuss is about? Do you just not give a crap? or maybe you are withholding judgement for now.

3. Has your enthusiasm been raised? Maybe you agree with WG's decision or believe they handled it well or something.



In the interests of transparency I sorta torn between 1. and 2. My enthusiasm for WoWs was lowered when I read about what might happen to the flag. But after I received a private response from Tiet, I'm willing to give WG the benefit of a doubt since they are still debating the decision and what they should do. I pick option 2.

I pick option two. It's a nice thing to have but it's not a necessary thing to have, it's not going to break the game if they exclude it.

My enthusiasm for the game has not waned at all.  However, I do believe the decision to remove the flag is a bad one (for transparency.)

Of course WG has handled it badly, they still let SerB troll the public in Q&As, the home office guys are simply not very smart when it comes to public relations. They never really have been.

This does not, strictly speaking, impact my willingness to play the game. First, I don't have to deal with the inept PR that WG does normally, so I can hold out hope that I will not suffer too many outrages. Second, unless I want to go back to Battlestations Midway, a Bad Game that I'm simply enough of a nerd to like, they have a captive audience.
But we do not tell our children stories of monsters so that they will know monsters exist. You knew monsters existed before you could speak, before you could walk. You were told stories of monsters because those stories had heroes. You were told stories of monsters so that you would know monsters can be defeated.

Disappointed but that one thing isn't going to lower my enthusiasm.

I picked 2. Like I said in the flag threads, I'm just not going to worry about it anymore.

I thank that most Americans don't hold grudges against them anymore so I don't see why they can't just let the American server have them and the few that thank it will be the end of the world can't just have the option to turn it off
Please read this if you have any questions about the game -> http://wiredstar.com/WoWsWiki/

My enthusiasm is the same.

I will probably look into mods for historically correct flags. But in todays world everything needs to be PC (sadly IMHO)

No change in enthusiasm. I see what the fuss is about, I have a stance, but it is a minor part in a video game.

I was a little lowered to see how the few butthurt players are afraid to see a piece of cloth attached to their ship. WG should listen to the majority, not the minority in this case

Wg plans to replace the Japanese flag? That is rediculous, and is a serious let down in my opinion. If people are so angered about the flag then join a different server that bans it. Nobody ever complained about battlestations pacific. It had a full Japanese campaign and used the rising sun extensively

I voted 2, but I highly disagree with this sort of PC BS, this is historical stuff we are talking about here, let it be historically accurate.

My enthusiasm for the game hasn't changed, but my contempt for prominant members of the community have certainly increased.
Good thing I tend to play solo anyways.

My enthusiasm is the same, although it annoys the hell out of me that people are complaining on the North American forum

No real change here.  This issue just isn't that important to me.

If they do get rid of the rising sun what are they going to put in its place? It's hard to believe a big red circle could stir up so much controversy
