What is the purpose of the black rock flag? does it give any special perks or is it just some event item that doesn't really do anything?

It showed me earning  it again, even though I got it last year.

Only one flag worth running unless your a tester or cbt person.

Hello there Shedok. I personally write little history pieces on the flags wargaming releases and share them here on the forums general discussion boards. If you wait for the 30th to show up, you will find a short and sweet history of it. Trust me, it does have value.

Only flag out there that gives a bonus is the Military Month Contributor Flag, unless it's a Ranked flag. Ranked flags go away after Ranked season ends.

 

WG made a mistake putting stats on it, but they had to release it. 

 

Only those of us from back in the day got it, but it really isn't some super massive bonus.

^  Yep.

+5% may not be much per game, but I would be interested to know what my total earnings with that flag have been since I run it on every ship, every game, and have since I received it.

I got the military month flag because, as luck would have it, I started the game during that month. Didn't even know what it was or that I would get it, I think I just bought some premium time and it showed up. I assumed it was just one of many flags with bonuses I would eventually collect, but am quite pleased to have pretty much the only one outside of ranked.

But yeah, +5% to credits, exp, and commander exp isn't a huge boost. Still better than nothing though.

I would like to know as well.

 

It's been on every ship that I've ran since I got it.

Honestly, I feel like they need to give people another chance to earn the Military Month flag at this point, or introduce another flag with the same bonuses.  The 5% may not seem like much, but if you play regularly then it does add up over time to be a good bit more than without it.

While they are at it, WG should re-open Alpha and Beta testing.  I didn't get a chance to get in on those, and therefore missed my opportunity to get those flags, not to mention the Iwaki Alpha and Arkansas Beta.  That just ain't fair.

That's a...hilariously inaccurate description of Burning Man. I mean, that's a part of it but by no means the whole thing. Source: I go most years.

can you remove a flag and place it on a different ship? just got my 1st one.

Yes, you can run the same flag on all of your ships at the same time.
