I really thank you very much.  Making achievements from playing good no longer being able to give flags is a very good choice and I'm glad we punish and give no incentive for good players to play good or anyone for that matter to play well or dominate the match. I'm glad we can now force the silver hoarders and f2p to waste copper now.

What, you don’t like being “rewarded” with missions to grind?!

It's a double-edge sword. Yes, It can allow lesser skilled players easier chances to get flags now but likewise, now you have to spend more time in the game to get flags and grind which not everyone wants to do or has time to do. They could've done both in-game talents plus missions which are harder to satisfy all spectrums of the playerbase. But it feels pointless now getting a kraken or confederate or high caliber now.

It also gives COOP/Operations players the ability to get flags, something we only had from daily crates, and since i dont have all the coal ships yet i obviously wasnt picking signal flags, and i do run flags on some ships.

I agree they could have done both options, and they should have done both, but i doubt many players where getting achievement flags to begin with.

Achievements are still an achievement in and of themselves, i never got anything outside of the achievement in WoT, or any game that has achievements. Never felt they where pointless, not once in the 27k games i played.

It's actually worse.  Achievements award specific flags, while the containers offer random flags, type 2 or 5 camos (really?), coal, or fxp (which can't purchase flags).

My eyes!  This is so terribly written. Can a brotha get a period or comma?  Run-on sentence deluxe - I gave up trying to understand this.

Can you say just sell the damn flags like they should have been for years, either in the armory or in the store.
