Jnglmpera replied to Jnglmpera's topic in General DiscussionsI follow the petition comments pretty closely, but many non-Japanese comments on that petition that I found comes from Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, and Hong Kong. All of these countries have had a history of Japanese occupation (except Thailand, who was allied to Japan and saw Japanese forces within its borders) before and during WWII.
Jnglmpera posted a topic in General DiscussionsRecently, Wargaming removed the Rising Sun from IJN Vessels within World of Warships because of complaints that claim they were a symbol of Japanese atrocity during the Second World War. Many Japanese people responded to this issue by starting a petition to bring back the flag to the game, arguing that there is no reason to delete a flag that is not illegal for use, but rather is still used by the JMSDF. Any thoughts? I personally think WG should bring back the flag for that very reason: The Rising Sun was used by the Navy way before WWII, and the flag is still in use currently by the JMSDF and therefore should not and cannot be associated with the Nazi Swastika, which is banned in most European countries including Germany. The matter has been discussed and the decision is that the flag will not appear in-game Please do not bring politics into the forums. Thread closed. ~Centurion_NZ
