You know you play too much when you get excited about earning a flag

I just won the ability to display two flags on German Cruisers and Battleships so now I can display My Free French Fleet flag (which all my ships fly) and my Ranked Battles earned Minister of Defense of the Weimar Republic flag.

Achieving such modest goals makes me a happy sailor, no matter my stat rating :Smile_medal:

Yep, my Germs will now fly the Prussia flag and along with the Weimar flag if historically appropriate for the ship. I love nation-specific flags too, and really liked the Free French ensign/jack addition.

I missed out on the Cross of Lorraine Flag which has a particular meaning dating to ww1, but maybe it will come around someday.

Flying two flags on the ship is good. I like it.

The big thing is setting the aimpoint when I identify a french warship for the shells to get there, some of them are really FAST.

I’m just glad to fly something other than Military Month Contributor.

Talk like a pirate flag for me!

Yep. Flying two flags is great.

Too bad the Japanese ability to do so is still locked behind a PvP only mechanic, when all others can be done in co-op as well.

(Time to fix this WG!)

Completing the collection was actually my main goal this patch. Now done I am not really worried about completing the other missions.

Camo scheme and dual flags for IJN ships is from the Yamamoto Isoroku collection, not the campaign. Can't recall if it is still collectable but PVP has nothing to do with it. I'm a Coop main and I have it.

Im glad for any opportunity to fly something in addition to the Military Month Contributor flag; I'll be happy when this makes its way to all nations.

Yep. And the Campaign to get the collection is PvP only.

Hmm, well I got the collection with no PVP play. Two flags on all IJN ships, two camo schemes on all IJN ships. No PVP required. By me. Not sure what you are referring to.

Goodness, it's been almost 5 years since that collection came out, so I may be fuzzy on this...

When the campaign first came out, the only way to open up access to containers to start the collection was to complete (parts) of the campaign - other than buying containers outright. The campaign has NO co-op missions available. So you must have done something to unlock the containers allowing you to progress though the collection using daily containers to fill in for the PvP campaign provided ones.

I am a co-op main and have no IJN vessel with either camo or flag options available because I did not participate in the IY campaign when it first came out years ago.

Yeah I think you could get it started with a container buy and then they would drop in normal containers. It has been a while so I may be fuzzy too but I think all of the events where the "prize" was the ability to fly two flags, have been like this. Not sure about a PvP requirement to earn extra crates, it is possible. I kind of remember that for the campaign where you get the captain named Yamamoto but that has been so long ago I could be mistaken.

I think there are others too, Community Contributor flags and IIRC, there is a Wargaming employee flag that gives a bonus. It has been a while since I have looked, but the Wiki page has a list and I think there are like 5 or 6 flags in the game that do outside the ones you get temporarily for Ranked.
