A long time member of the game and clan mate (name will not be shared as I haven't obtained permission from his spouse to do so) recently passed away.  A conversation between many of us discussed that we were sure that this was surely not an isolated case and during the era of Covid 19 may be a common occurrence.  We discussed that we would like to see a option in the flags area (Nationality flag) that could be raised at half mast to bring to battle  in memory of a fallen comrade.  I would like to see this as part of the game.  What do you all think?

Wish your clan mate's family and your clan all the best.

Great suggestion, but unlikely to be implemented in the foreseeable future.

Edit: There's actually a good use for the sad reaction. :(

I fully endorse and support the option to fly the flag at half mast on our ships for just these sorts of sad occasions.

We have had this sort of thing happen a few times. I am thinking a memorial wall (in game) of the player in game names could be cool.

Can I fly my national flag upside down to show I’m playing that ship under duress? Grinding through Emerald comes to mind.

In time you'll find that Emerald is a fun-to-play ship.  I can't tell you how to get there, but you will. Just keep playing.

I fly the Union Jack upside-down all the time and nobody ever seems to notice. Odd that.

This, she feels weak as a kitten when you grind through it but if you go back to her you will find that she is quite capable and is a great choice for plane kills.

Sorry for the loss of your friend. :Smile_sad:

As far as something to put in the game to show you are in morning? I like the idea of ships in black, but not sure how that would work.

I CAN...stop assuming it's a CL just because it's in a CL tech tree.

Emerald is the most OP T5 DD in the game...bar none.

RN smoke/hydro/double racks of torps on each side (that can torp out most any BB in it's meta from just 1 sides worth)/same AP shells as the T10 Mino (velocity differences only variance)/as agile as most other DDs/& a couple cits just charges it's Adrenalin Rush so it can do all those things even quicker...until that damned RN heal kicks in & gives you all those HPs back & uncharges your Adrenalin Rush...damned RN heals. Oh yeah...& BTW...did I mention the damned RN heals?

OP...Sorry for your loss...1/2 mast flags seem like a cool idea for that...& the sad emoji is definitely appropriate for that.

WG could make a flag that we could run on just such occasions. They could give it to every one for free. The Fallen Comrade Flag and make it big when mounted.  Sorry for the loss of a fellow player and condolences to the family.

Emerald is a great ship but the joke was funny anyway.

Years ago I started playing a Pirate game ... it turned out many of the people (very many) who initially joined were members from a local fishing board ... so there were already many friendships established from the local community (Texas Gulf Coast).  As life goes, over the years, several older members passed away.  The owner of the game actually made those former members a special class (Memoriam), put them in different ships, and have had them sailing "in absentia" ever since.

Now THAT is honoring past members, their friends and in many cases, family members who were/are also players.

Yes ... I support your Half Mast proposal.

Sorry for your loss OP. Best regards to your clan and their family.

I'm not certain WG could easily do a half-mast flag thing. However, it would be simple enough to add a flag into the game for such an occasion for everyone to use. Even if it was just one solid color.
