  1. I agree about adding the silver fern, that would indeed make it inclusive. When I see a slouch hat, I instantly think of Aussies. But I'm conditioned to do that, cos I'm an Aussie, and that hat is a national icon here.. But if I lived in Nepal, I would straight away think of the Gurkha, a Nepalese soldier that also wore slouch hats. Context is everything...What do Kiwis think of when they see a slouch hat? Maybe we should be asking them? If they think of their armed forces, then thats good, nothing to see here. And as the Kiwis in WW1 wore them too... Did the 'research' by WG consist of looking at some photos of troops -both NZ and Aus- at Anzac Cove and saying 'they all wear those hats, so that hat will do for our needs'?.. so perhaps they thought the hat will do for both countries?..I can't imagine that down at WG HQ they have hat specialists.. Maybe it's like how some Aussies can't tell Sikh headgear from Muslim headgear. Sorry if I came across as a dick in my earlier posts, but thats just my MO. I do agree that Kiwis copped a bum deal over this. Maybe that's what they get for hogging the Bledisloe Cup.
  2. Probably the only thing that is unique to Aussies is the rip-off of the Rising Sun. Other than that, how else is it Australian? The colours have no significance in relation to ANZAC day.. And I'm fairly sure the Kiwis did wear Slouch Hats, thus it does include them. But other countries military's also have worn it over the years. So it's up for conjecture there As for poppies, WG messed up that- no surprise there. Rosemary has always been the symbol of ANZAC, not poppies as they are for the western front. I've always felt 'uncomfortable' when private enterprise uses the day of our war dead to further it's own goals. It's cheap and smacks of patronization.
  3. I don't understand what you're trying to say here, Sapper. It does mention the Kiwis, and it does mention the Ottoman Turks. But if you are referring to the patches themselves, nowhere does it specifically denote Australia - so in the same vein, nowhere should it specifically say New Zealand.

    There is a downside of playing CVs.. Its getting PMs from small minded individuals who think the world owes them a favour.

    Stealth Ship... "Spotted"?

    Could it have been the Invisible Boat Mobile, from Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy??

    New Underwater environments !

    Watching ships sinking from this angle will be interesting, especially ones that detonate. Planes plunging into the briny is also gonna be spec, as seen from below. And not even mentioning torpedo explosions against hulls. Bring it on.

    RNGesus never sleeps. He may be drunk or having a holiday, but be assured, He watches all. Welcome back and dust off that Banhammer.

    Interesting. Two in two weeks. Thanks Lord.
  12. Oh, I'm not angry at all.. Did my post come across as angry? If so, that's not the intention. On the contrary, I'm slightly bemused by those who think that premium ships are some type of 'untouchable' when it comes to WG changing them. They can nerf a ship...didn't you read my post above?? ..Look at the contract you agreed to, the EULA ....They can do what they want with the ships. Nobody can stop them. Don't be fooled. There is no fraud at all. They can do what they want.
  13. The analogy with the car is a good one. But I guess that you own the car once you buy it...In this case, you don't own the ship, WG does. This is from section 9 -Additional Features - of the WG EULA. (i) you agree that you do not “own” the Additional Features and that we have the absolute right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate such Additional Features at our sole discretion, in any general or specific case, and that we will have no liability to you based on our exercise of such right; Additional Features refers to prem ships, among other things. What this means, and the next 2 subsections, is that no-one owns any of their prem ships and WG can do what they want with them. Click here to see EULA

    Can we rely on team?
