The title is pretty self explanatory.. This is about the Military Flag.

I imagine my position is not a new one. I say either remove it, or offer it again. That simple.

Im always keen for more commemorative flags 

I believe the OP is talking about the "Military Month Contributor" (aka MMC) flag that gives small bonuses. 

Vader's response post is the most appropriate response to the subject...

Oh that one, right I always forget about that one. 

I would love for that to come back too, I missed out on it.

And if given the opportunity, I would support the same charity.. And I might be a little more motivated to contribute because I am... you know.. and actual vet who *entitlement alert* actually served aboard one of the ships in this game.

What I get out of your request is:  "If I can't have it, NO ONE should have it."

That surprises me a bit coming from a mature veteran.

Look, nice stuff gets released from time to time.  If you weren't around when that stuff was released, how should you be entitled to receive it?  And the bigger question, how can you demand it be taken away from everyone who did get it if you did not?

BTW, Navy vet here, as well.  VP-60, '88-'94.

I grant you that yes, it is entitled and selfish.. and maybe if the flag didnt have such good bonuses, I would be silent. But the flag does, and it confers unfair bonuses for folks who happened to be there are the right time

Supported charity? I thought I got that flag after completing a chain of missions, don't recall actually supporting a charity.

WG has said many times that they won't release the flag again and they won't take the bonuses off since that would cause more issues for them then keeping them. If you want a flag with bonuses you need to try to become a ST

If even that it was given out so long ago it might have just been a log in.

It isn't happening.  I believe WG regretted doing the Military Month Contributor flag because it's the only one that gets used by the people that have it, to the point on making all other flags useless.  AFAIK, MMC flag is the only one with an actual bonus to it.  Nothing before or since then has had any bonus attached.

 

Full disclosure.  I have that flag and I use it on every ship.  Even Glorious Warships guided by the Hand of Stalin have the American MMC flag flying over them :Smile_trollface:

Looking it up, was a five stage mission with rather simple tasks.

In that case, it needs to be removed. Period.

So: you don't have it, that's why no one should have it?

It gives +5% to credits, XP, and commander XP.  It isn't a huge bonus.

Now, if you fly it on every ship for every game, it will add up over time.  Still, these are economic bonuses only.  There is no performance bonus, so I don't see how it is 'unfair'.

I'll add something else to trigger you.  Tarnanstrich camo was awarded for Tirpitz that, in addition to common premium multipliers, adds a +100% Free XP.  That turns Tirpitz into a solid Free XP earner.  I don't think you can get your hands on that anymore, either.

You know, this sounds like at the kindergarden in the sandbox.

"Waaah, he has a shovel because he got here earlier. Either I get a shovel as well or you need to take his away!"

That's like giving a kid a chocolate bar and taking it away. People would get very, very angry. Instead, the arguement should be 'it never should have been added to begin with'

It's a 5% economy bonus!  It's nice, but it isn't a huge deal!  LOL...why are some people so uptight about it???

Ummm, No. You where not there you did not earn it. You just can't arbitrarily take something away from people who earned it.

Don't want to sound like a turd but. US Army Infantry here.  You know I do not like other Army Vets having the Vietnam campaign medals and i don't, because I missed that "right time" period.  So I want want the Gov to give me those awards, and if they don't I want the other Vets stripped of theirs.  See how ludicrous that sounds. Think about it.
