Flags with Bonuses

My dad has a couple flags that give bonuses...i think extra credits. I am not talking about signal flags, but the single flag (or two if you complete collections.)

How did he obtain these? Are there any obtainable now? I have two flags I can put on most of my ships, but no flags that give a bonus. The only time I had one was for ranked battles and it was removed a long time ago.

There's only one I know of that gives a bonus, the MM flag, and it won't be returning. There won't be any others according to WG, either.

I know of one that was available as part of a special fundraising promotion a couple years ago. If I remember correctly, WGing have stated they will not put out any more flags with bonuses. Never know, of course. But I would not expect it to happen any time soon.

Respects,

Am

Higher ranking flags during Ranked Battles - but these are taken away after each Ranked season.

There was also one for King of the Sea - but only on EU server.

Not entirely sure what’s so game breaking about a 5% credit bonus; but imagine WG would love to remove the MMC flag if they could.

Maybe if it was a +5% auto repair every so many minutes; but credits? What’s the big deal?

5% credits, 5% XP boost, 10% (cumulative) Commander XP, with infinite copies, unlimited uses, and they gave it away at nearly the very beginning of the games life. I can't even begin to calculate how much extra XP and captains XP I've gotten from that flag now, and it's the gift that will keep on giving until I stop playing.

Yeah; that is true.

I may only use it on USN ships for the most part; but even then I’m sure it’s been a lot.

I am grateful for all the missions and campaigns that unlocked a second flag on my ships - the first flag is ALWAYS the MMC flag, the second slot is nice to have for fun/historical flavor.

Yeah, at ranks 15 and 10 (and possibly 5, I don't really know), you earn a "league" flag that, IIRC, comes with a bonus (reduction) to the service fee.  The flag at rank 10 replaces the flag for rank 15.  And IIRC, the benefit is something like -5% to service fee at rank 15 and then -10% to service fee at rank 10.  The percentage numbers might be off, but the idea is that the flag at rank 10 gives a better bonus than the one at rank 15.  And as you say, those flags are removed after each Ranked season.

However, during ranked season, when I earn those flags, I make sure to put them on any ship that can possibly mount it, as it's a nice little bonus in addition to the MMC flag.

There is no imaginable reason not to fly it on every ship.

National flavor.

Only time I’ve ever flown it on ships other than USN is for specific grinds, and maxing the related bonuses from camo and signals.

The 5 pct credit bonus flag would stop people from buying the 10 pct  credit bonus flags. Hence it was a limited edition and they claim they will not do it again.

Yes, there are a few.  Look in the wiki for a list.

No, you can't get one.  Well, not unless you become a Supertester or a WG employee.

Your rationale escapes me, but to each his own.

Visually the design makes it a US themed flag; therefore I (more or less,) only fly it on US ships.

I have other flags for other Navies I want to fly.

I may suck at times; but I’ve never sucked so badly and so consistently that I’ve been desperate for every single credit or xp; therefore I never cared if I flew it on every ship or not.

Basically as you said; ‘to each their own.’

Yeah it is weird that they seem to think it is a problem. Not sure how terrible it would be to reduce the grind by a freaking 5% or to give out 5% more credits... They could make money selling the flag or better yet, could sell them and give a portion of the profits to help one of the many ship museums. I would pay good money for a Texas flag with bonuses that helped out the old ship. Heck I would pay good money for actual historical flags with no bonuses to put on my ships. So many of the vanity flags are just crap...

Yeah; even without bonuses I would love to have a Battle Ensign sized White Ensign to fly from my Warspite, (like the one from Jutland at the RN Museum in Portsmouth.)

I've used mine on every ship, every battle, since i got it. Over at least 5,000 battles, with a premium account, that's got to add up to some big numbers.

Or simple ambiance (which includes national flavor).  Sometimes color coordination.  Sometimes just to reflect a feeling.  Sometimes....just because it looks pretty.  And sometimes....just because.

At nearly eighteen-thousand battles, it might be argued I’ve thrown away lots of credits and xp by not doing the same...

...considering though I’ve 840-ish million credits an 3.5-ish million fxp; plus Lord knows how much unconverted ship xp, (including a Bogue that just topped one-million sxp,) I’m at a point where those bonuses don’t mean that much.
