I earned my Jolly Roger flags the hard way through rank outs when they were still given. They were and still are the most prized of my in game awards. And now they will be just given away to pirate event players just for playing 16 battles!!! Are you kidding me? You couldn't make a different flag for this?

What an utterly inconsequential thing to be upset about.

i dont think it is . when i played ranked and saw any of the jolly rogers on a boat you had a idea about the player . im talking about the real ranked the this crap we have now .  

they stopped giving the flags by the time i started to rank out .   i prefer to have earned it . next theyll be giving out the KOTS winning flag just because .

Actually no. Its a big deal.

I own a jolly roger flag after ranking out the hard way in the old ranked system. The last 10 to 15 victories took a pound of blood and iron out of me.

Its a small item. Normally I don't worry too much about virtual items however this would be one where I plant it in the sand and draw the line.

I'd say it's those that didn't earn it the hard way would disagree with my post. Same thing with Flint. Nerfed into the ground after earning it the hard way. Nothing in this game is worth grinding for or sacred anymore. There simply aren't any rewards of value.

I would have to agree with OP on this... I never reached rank one in the old ranked system but feel like the Jolly Roger flags should be left for those that did.

Is looking hard at a boat enough to see a flag a thing people do?

Eh, I don't have one but I can understand why they mean something to those that do have one.  It's a "you had to be there" thing that they probably worked hard to earn.  If it is the same flag, I can see those people being ticked off about it.

Imagine you climb mount everest, and they give you a special "First to everest" award. 

5 years later they sell the same award in the gift shop to children.

Sort of diminished the reward a bit.

The reality is the people doing the current promotions are not the original wargaming employees, so the context of flags and award only items is lost.

Not saying it's good or bad, but that is what has happened.

The flip side is that usually there are unique flags for these events, anyone that participates in this event that already had the jolly Roger 2 gets no flag out of this. 

So they don't get the unique event flag like normal. 

@Hapa_Fodder why is there no special flag for this event like for other events and why did WG decide to give out an exclusive reward flag instead?

Some.  I have a closed beta player flag that I mostly never run but have in the past.  I had two people say something about it chat.

Yeah I don't get it.  I have the old pirate flag.  Why not just use that if they are going to copy one?

The thought of getting a ranked reward item for participating in an event like this is........

Hell, I don't even know what it is.

When I saw Flint in-game when she was a ranked reward, she was a Unicorn sailed by beasts with bears and smell like whiskey and went down with their ship with a "gg o7" in the chat.

Nowadays, it's being sailed by salt-covered potatoes spam-clicking the map and red stats with CapitalOnes

This is exactly why I’ll never get a Black or Flint, I didn’t EARN them.
