Bad news everyone!  You can't use your coupon on this!

 

What can you use a coupon for?

 

Oh yeah - AC Sentinel Loaded for $63.00

Thanks for posting the image CD!  I was logged in earlier but wasn't able to see the offer for whatever reason.  No biggie. 

 

This offer is on the hilarious side as I see it.  I have seen a number of players here express that they are digital tank collectors and that's great!  I am at 180 tanks in the garage, so I get it.  What I don't get is who wants to be a flag collector? 

 

Now in World of Warships, there are camo and signals and not only do they add to the appearance of a vessel, but they add some form of boost to it.  So I definitely get those being offered for sale.    They also have decorative flags;  I have one for Pearl Harbor, another for Dunkirk, one for the Eagles (of the Eagles vs Sharks campaign), but those aren't offered up for sale, at least not directly.  You can buy containers and get whatever various commodity is needed to get some flags.    So I guess I get that too.

 

But who wants all the flags here?  What is the point?

 

Side note:  when Wargaming gave flags for different national events, I would usually put the flag on whatever tank I had win them with.  So I had a Centurion with a Brazilian flsg and a KV-3 with an Argentinean flag.  Just as a way of commemorating those events, until I got PMs from players from those nations, presuming I was one of them.  So no more of that!  :D

Please tell me I'm not the only one seeing this. Why would anyone buy this?

 

Um, because they want all the flags?   

 

Don't seem too difficult to figure out

Why would I want to display a flag other than that of my own country, the USA :great:, and the "Don't Tread On Me" flags on my tanks?

 

BTW WG, how about fixing the Flag of the United States? There's supposed to be 13 stripes, 7 red and 6 white not 11 stripes with 6 white and 5 red. You folks got every other National Flag right, why not the USA Flag?

 

In order to create a fun flag for everyone to see some cropping of all the flags were done. It's definitely easier to recognize America's since the stripe at the top was the main part that was cropped out along with an entire row of stars.

We can joke around and say that in this alternate history where Tank battles rage in a post apocalyptic thunder dome style, that there were 12 original colonies. Our games isn't 100% historically accurate so its fun to think up other possibilities to explain stuff in our game. 

 

On a serious note, I did report this feedback to our developers, and thank you for pointing it out to us. :D

The NA server is sinking and with wargaming doing more and more to anger players like the tankrewards tier 4 and no tanks for bonds and cancelling or postponing the nerfs to the Russian mediums its going to get worse. They trying to do anything to make money off a sinking ship . It reminds me of the black tank / black Friday sale. Must have money to burn if ya buy that . If so buy me a war chest please ill put it to good use :)

What real issues do you think the guys that do graphics should be working on?  That's like calling a plumber to wire your stereo

It would be interesting to see how many of these actually sell.  I think they'd have been better off selling packs of 24 of each flag individually. More people would probably be wiling to spend $3 for a pack of flags that they want than $56 for a bunch of flags they'll probably never use.

You guys don't understand RNG and mm at all!

BUY the flag bundle and watch your winrate increase up to 10%!

This, I think, is the most bizarre sell I've ever seen from Wargaming. When I saw the deal, I was thinking a price of maybe $2, as much as $5, might find some buyers. But most people want one flag - with a few who might like a little more than one.

 

But $55.99???? 50% off for flags people mostly can't even use, this is what, 540 emblems, even if someone wanted some random flag on every spot on every tank they had? This is bizarre. They're usually more savvy than this. June fools joke?

Why wouldn't they try and get every penny they could drag out of us? As long as your having fun just ignore it and buy only what you want.

I only care about flags of the countries that are in game, specifically the ones that are doctored into other techtrees especially, things like the Ram II/Sexton (Canadian) and the Toldi/Turan (Hungarian)
