    Well I personally don't find it offensive. It is, after all, a naval branch flag. It is not like the German Swastika. THAT is an offensive symbol used by all branches of the German military.

    Japanese Naval flag

    Back when the game was being developed, many thought that the Japanese Naval flag, with the red bars emanating from the center red sun, was offensive as it was the flag used by their navy during WW2. Well just look what their ships fly these days.

    ANZ Father's day

    Seeing as WoT is unplayable due to the cables down and the re-routing via the US which gives us crap pings, many have turned to WoWs as it doesn't appear to be as badly affected. Tanitha has announced that they will be giving ANZ WoT members gifts in honour of our Fathers day, can we expect similar gratitude from WoWs?. See below: Tanitha has just posted a new topic entitled "Happy Fathers Day - ANZ" in forum "Australia & New Zealand". ---------------------------------- Dear ANZ.. On a separate topic to the recent cable issues : ) We at Wargaming would like to wish you a Happy Fathers Day! for this weekend. And since we know you and the family will all be platooned and playing tanks all weekend *cough* We have credited all ANZ accounts that have been active recently with the following. 3x +100% Experience Booster Consumables, 1 hour duration 3x +200% Crew Experience Booster Consumables, 1 hour duration 3x +200% Free Experience Booster Consumables, 1 hour duration This has been credited early (Today around 10am Perth time) so you can use it as you wish over the weekend. Have a great weekend. Regards Wargaming. PS. Fathers day is recognised regionally in June. And with ANZ being on a different date than the rest of the region, ANZ's special date is recognised separately.

    That funny smart arse. I have rank 17, yet there are un-ranked players and other with rank 15 to 18. Do you understand what I said? It doesn't appear that you know the difference between numbers. Maybe you should go back to school and learn what numbers are.

    Well all this advice is great, in the higher ranks where they understand TEAM WORK. But where I am stuck at this time, it's just a waste of time. SEATards and newbies abound. WG need to use the ranks attained by players and put them to use in MM. Otherwise those, like me, get stuck and cannot advance due to the incompetence of the mixed rank/unranked players put into teams.\ There have been some games where carrying is possible, but most demonstrate the utter stupidity and think they are in an arcade style shoot-em-up. Games where you have 3 caps, so common sense says take the middle one because there is another on our side of the map which is easy and can be taken whilst fighting for the middle cap. No. Most teams race straight for the easiest one and wonder why the enemy lead on points. Same teams usually die pretty quickly trying to get the middle one back from the enemy who now have two caps and just sit back waiting for the fools to present themselves.

    With the numbers playing, it SHOULDN'T be hard to manage to get, for example, two teams of players ranked 17, together. They already have the tier sorted and they already match BB for BB, CL for CL, DD for DD, why not actually USE the rank that the player has earned. I'm pretty sure it use to be like that in the early Ranked battles. That's what they were for.

    Yet you cant get there with all the [Content Removed] in the teams. I had to start at 18 and actually managed to get to 17, but with all the dreggs in the teams, it's near impossible to actually win 2 in a row to get to the next rank.

    I haven't played the last two seasons of ranked so I want to get back down to, I think, 13 the last time I looked way back then.

    And we get some smart-arse answer from the audience. I want to play with and against similar ranked players and have some form of faith in a team that might actually win. I didn't come in here to get some person who thinks he is too good to give some sort of stupid remark, but they do as you can all see.

    What is the purpose of getting ranked in the first place? Correct me if I'm wrong, but early Ranked battles pitted same RANKED players in the teams against another team of same RANKED players. What I see in this lot of rubbish is just a smaller Random team, full of useless players of ANY rank or UNRANKED. Waste of time.
  13. I know it's suppose to be a team game, but I see too many solo idiots whose only aim is to get more damage and kills than the rest of the team. Bugger trying to help team members. At the start of the matches, before the timer counts down, I ask what the plan is. If I don't get a reply, I make a suggestion. Low and behold, most of the team do something totally opposite. Too many treating it as a shoot-em-up and not helping one another.

    Yeah well I came here for a rant, not to read the opinion of some self professed academic wanna-be. It's a game guys, not Psychology 101. I am all for TEAMWORK in the game. But it doesn't happen. Even those in some Divisions don't team up. Don't know why the even bother joining a Division. Same as WoT. Until Clan Wars, it was just 15 solo players trying to get more kills and damage than the next guy. In CW, there is a team plan and communication. Even prior training nights that, if you didn't show up for, you didn't get into the next CW battles. This is called organisation and teamwork. There's nothing magic or even academic about it. You work together. I see all those players with Clan Tags and figure they might have some form of a battle discipline. Nope. Last night I even went into a ranked battle. I was in a Nagato. There was a DD in there being driven by someone I had never seen before. We start to move and he goes to my starboard side while I am training my turrets portside. Next thing I know, he launches a full spread of torps at me and I get 7 of them. So badly damaged that a single enemy shot killed me. He died soon after by another teammate TKing him. Unsure whether WoWs has an auto-ban for TKs because it's not something I have ever done. This is the sort of mentality I find in so many players. Now why shouldn't I have the right to have a rant at them if that sort of thing happens?

    I have seen so many battles turn because the noob in a Premium is not doing what is best for the team. So many of them get this all-powerful ship and think they are god. Instead of supporting a teammate, they are going solo after the enemy, which normally ends up being a suicide run. This leaves the team short of a member who could have been doing some good for the team. Normally, but not always the case, by the time a player has ground their way to Tier 8, they have some idea of the tactics and often spot where they are needed before they have to be called. I watched a noob in WoT today. He had a Premium tank and had zero battles showing. He went to one spot on the map and camper behind a bush. Meanwhile, the remains of the team were hunting down the few remaining enemy. In the end, this noob had turned a win into a loss because he didn't go to support teammates and they got killed. He stayed in his bush and died there when then enemy eventually found him.
