Hey Guys & Girls,

 

As much as I enjoy World Of Warships I have noticed there is either a Ship Paint or Flag for special occasions,

 

Being a current Serving member of the Australian Defence Force, I'm very passionate about Australia's Battle History and i would like to express our Very Special Day on the 25th of April to all of the WOW Community with either a Paint Scheme for the Ships or a Flag that all Australian & New Zealand Players can show with Pride while they Engage in these Wonderfull Battles.

The Moment WOW Advertised the HMAS PERTH  I Jumped at the chance to get that ship and what a Machine it is.

I Imagine how nice it would be to Fly a Flag that Represented ANZAC Day and or a Paint that Showed Beautifull Art like the New Years Paint.

 

 

 

I ask you all if you would like to help me get this into the WOW gameplay for the Special day of the 25th in April and show Our Commonwealths Pride.


Some Designs will be needed for both Flags and Pain if you all would like to take a crack and Hopefully the WOW Dev's will accept it and Place it into the Gameplay :):):)

 

I hope this will happen as i never see Allot of Commonwealth History shown on games.

 

Regards,

Nolan

Ill start off the imagery,

 

Here is a paint Scheme that would look nice but i only found half the Mural on Google... But im Sure The Dev's can make it into something that looks good.

Here is a Flag Picture that I Think will do Nicely.

Hi Nolan, I think that's a great idea, Something along the lines of the first image you posted would work well I think. I actually have another post asking kindly for HMNZS Achillles to be made into a ship, but I also suggested that perhaps it could come with the current RNZN ensign as a flag, even if they just offered the current RNZN and RAN ensigns on ANZAC day I'd appreciate it, But I do think a stylised poppy design would make a really great flag. I haven't been playing long enough to know, but if there isn't a flag for Victory day in Russia, I'd like to throw in a suggestion for that too.

That would be Great Aswell They need to show allot more Variety Ingame as they have allready filled the Tech Tree with The Far Majority oh Historical Ships from the WW2 and Pacific War era.Of the Northern Equator,

But now they need to focus on the Country's that Put in their Efforts aswell :)

The memory of our Anzacs is commercialized enough.

 

Businesses which profit from the deeds of wartime are exploiting those that sacrificed themselves.

 

Thankfully, there are regulations in Australia which can prevent this.

This is true but the world based knowlege of ANZAC day is not known throughout the globe only to those countrys who share our intrests and values.

 

This is not a profiteering request i do not wish to have this a pay to use item this is an item that will be available on the day like the chineese new year flag and the new years paint template for ships.

 

I want to express the pride of my countries herritage fly the flag that honnours my fallen Great Grandfather and his son's after him, I want to show that I will allways remember them and i believe that others that are just as patriotic as myself will like to express that aswell...

 

So i dont see it as a Comercialiisation, I see it as another way or digital way to show our rememberence.

I completely agree, also technically if you want to argue the point, ever single game, film, TV show or toy based on a weapon of war, WoWs included could be argued to be making profit from previous wars. I don't think it shows any disrespect to want to have a flag that represents your country or even personal sacrifices (since the OP mentioned he was serving ADF). And from what I've ready it seems WG has been pretty good with working around historical sensitivities what with not using the Rising Sun flag or obviously National Socialist imagry

Where as I agree and support the idea I think there are laws and regulations involved which WG would have to address before any imagery related to ANZAC could be used.

Hence why I have posted it 2 months before the date of ANZAC day well 79 days to be exact.

Well if you want to use a flag, don't make one up.

 

Use a proper flag, one that has meaning and already is symbolic.

 

Use the flag the Anzacs fought under-

 

The Red Ensign.

I would Accept the Red Ensign But that would suit better to Future Ships that WG would bring out from the Royal Australian Navy.. (Hope they will)

 

But Custom made Flags and Paints have been made by Individuals to express their Support for the Memorial day. It should Show the Poppy and a Ship even the Union Jack....

 

Give it a go mate make a design show your ANZAC Spirit.

Pretty sure that the red ensign for both Australia and NZ is used for merchant ships only, they flew the white Royal navy one on warships until about the 60's I think when they both adopted their own white versions. Probably better if they brought out any future Aussie or kiwi ships for them to fly the more modern ones, a bit like how the IJN ships in this game have the current Japanese flag (though for other reasons obviously). I think a stylised poppy would work well as a commemorative flag, that way it represents both nations.
