  1. Turning pink isn't a punishment. It's a warning.
  2. Flag for Vet Family Members?

    I actually love the idea of a POW/MIA flag if they did it like the military month flag. Small purchase for a good cause. There is even a difference between combat MOS's as well if we split hairs. Some MOS's are just inherently more dangerous. Even non-combat MOS's have varying degrees of risk involved depending on your assignment. My MOS sometimes kept me on a base and other times put me on a hilltop 3 miles from the front line with a team of 5. Besides, with motar and rocket attacks on base camps even being on a base camp can hold a lot of risk combat MOS or not. I just choose to ignore that. A veteran is a veteran. Army, Air force, Navy, Marines, National Guard, Combat MOS or Non-combat MOS.... The only vets I hold above all other are the ones that gave the ultimate sacrifice, the MIA and the purple heart recipients.

    Damn... I couldn't imagine. You win sir! I got out of the Army in 2001 and I was 6 month out before 9/11 happened. I was certain I would be recalled. Thank god I wasn't. I had just bought a home, just started my new career with a wife and 2 children at home... Couldn't imagine. Thanks for your service x2
  4. How do I turn off the taunt screen?

    Old guy here. It's not a taunt. Its a badge instead of text. Was the text notifications taunting you as well or is it just the badge?
  5. How do I turn off the taunt screen?

    It's not even about who is better. It's simply saying such and such got the kill shot on you. There is no teabagging happening. Seems since it went from text to a badge some people just can't handle it for some reason
  6. Submarine Watch - Update

    What's the game objective? There is more than one way to achieve victory. What happens in cap games? Do you think you're going to be useful having to cross the map to get the next cap? BB's take 1/2 the match to cross. After the fight is done in the cap you were in your match would essentially be over. Doesn't sound like fun to me.
  7. Upcoming Massive Sync DROP?!

    There is a difference in accidental and purposely. Look. Do what you want. I'm just pointing it out.
  8. Upcoming Massive Sync DROP?!

    I didn't say that did I? What I did say was in April WG said they are addressing the Clan drop sync issue. If you attempt to do this WG said any additional clan members beyond the division limit will be put into a different match. So no... It's not impossible and it's kinda obvious they don't want you doing it anymore with that announcement.
  9. Upcoming Massive Sync DROP?!

    I'm not so sure I would advertise this as WG announced last month they are working to break-up clan drop-syncs...
  10. Pink - How you doin so far?

    Got it. Didn't realize it was a tk.
  11. Pink - How you doin so far?

    I haven't turned pink once for scraping paint with a friendly. I'm guessing there is more to the story than just paint scraping.
  12. Submarine Watch - Update

    I believe almost everyone wouldn't mind subs 'if done right'. That's the kicker. It can't be 'done right' with the current engine. WG thought about it, looked into it and said no subs because of too many issues and problems. Everything else is pointless wishful thinking.
  13. Submarine Watch - Update

    Another problem. Ship HP is by displacement. Not sure anyone would want to pilot a 1 shot ship. Most were between 1k and 500 tones of displacement. 1 volley and poof! Fun and engaging. Lol.
  14. Flag for Vet Family Members?

    No. Flags have never been given out to veterans in this game. There was a military month flag but anyone and everyone could get it. You can calm down now.
