Hello Captains!

For this week's weekly thought, what would you like to see for the Combat patches in the game? What imagery would you like? Would you like some contest to earn some special ones?  I'd love to hear your ideas!

(TO NOTE: If you don't like the Combat Patches, this ain't the thread for you. Move along, now. Don't be that guy!)

I know we've done commemorative flags for past competitive events like KotS and/or WSL, but I'd love to see a patch or emblem exclusive to the event.  It would allow players to show everyone else "hey, I did this thing" without anyone having to zoom in and look at the flags on their ship (which are frequently impossible to make out at a distance anyway); as soon as you frag somebody, their name and the KotS logo comes up on the screen, or whatever.  It's like free advertising.  Someone will go "what's that?" and do some searching.

Similarly, do these for Clan Battles.  Hand them out to the top-rated clan on the cluster so they can all shove it in their opponent's faces. ;)

Any other reply to this thread now is meaningless... Can't top that one.

A Coo of Boom patch to match the flag for those that have the Coo of Boom flag!

So many could have an emblem: those that rank out, those that make it to top league in cb,  special events like clash of elements where top 100 got achievements.

There automatically needs to be Rank 1 patches for those who have ranked out, with a number in the middle as to how many times they have ranked out. I obviously don't qualify for that, but it is the first thing that comes to mind when I think "commemorating excellence".

In addition, there should be one for each ingame nations flag, both the national flag and naval ensign, which could be earnable in a permanent mini-campaign just as a nice thing.

Also, military veterans should get a special patch with a system for them to claim it. 


Aside from that, any other achievement should be with flags instead. Don't go about replacing the emblems of flags onto patches, because that would make it harder for people to earn them and would reduce personal expression, which right now is a very nice thing that we have.

I saw someone mention this idea in another thread and think that's a good idea.  And if there was one with a purple and grey owl ...

The game would have to be fun to play before I start to give a damn about patches. I use the parrot. I think the devs have bigger problems than adding more patches.

I'd love to see a koala or a kangaroo, maybe something similar to the boxing kangaroo:

Yes. we defiantely need a Corgi :)

Would be interesting to see some historical ship patches to go along with new premiums (possibly replacing/supplementing the customary flag)

Also need more sea critters. Various tropical fish, an albatross, a Squid/Kraken. Stuff like that.

I like the backgrounds and that we will grow the patches and emblems.

What id like to see is the ability to hang or select your heroic rewards on it as the salad bar / citations hanging off or as pennants off the border.

For example, Solo Warrior, or Liquidator, or a new set of hard to achieve flag.

I changed my mind in the last few minutes. I now think the devs have MUCH bigger problems.

There should be an actual Goat as one of the animals for the patches, the US Naval Academy's mascot is a Goat, the Chief's Quarters on a ship is nick named "The Goat Locker".  Goats are salty and disagreeable when annoyed, it fits this game to a tee!

I'd like a proper kraken.

Also something for karma, perhaps, which people keep asking for.

Edit: And also some for Captain Bad Advice and Fish!

Since it looks like in your face patches are here to stay, I agree that a Corgi patch would be great. Especially if we could have one by Friday for the Corgi event.

 

A seal wielding a club would be shiny.

Make 'em for various achievements!

  • Mentor / Leadership Patches -- similar to your Coo of Boom flag, earned through acts which deserve recognition in the community.
  • Recruitment Patches -- earned through recruiting friends to the game that progress their account beyond a certain level.
  • Industrial Patches -- earned through unlocking and buying all of the ships in a given tech tree and playing at least X number of matches in each ship (that way you do have to play Emerald/Izumo, etc).  Shouldn't be too arduous, maybe ship tier x10 games.  There would be one for each nation with a tech tree.
  • Mega Achievements -- earned through accomplishing astounding feats, like 1,000th Devastating Strike, or 10th Solo Warrior, etc.  You could even make different qualities of these badges, like an award for your 10th / 100th / 1000th Kraken Unleashed to future proof 'em.
  • Trophy Hunting -- similar to World of Tanks' achievement system, this requires you to sink one example of each type of ship in a given nation's tech tree, not including premiums.  There would be one for each nation.
  • Big Game Hunter -- earned through sinking at least one of each of the discontinued / rare premium ships.
  • Bounty Hunter -- earned through dealing the killing blow on WG employees / famous personalities.

I just want more anime botes. I missed the ARP event(joined as it was ending) so I'm gonna get the HSF Graf Spee, but the more anime ships the better.
