The Cost of Flags

20x Sierra Mike cost 2,400,000 credits. 120,000 credits ea. Some flags are cheaper, but most are around that.

So playing a game with 4-5 flags mounted can easily cost > half a mil. credits,  more than you'll make playing the game even if you win and do well.

Of course containers drop flags, credits and coal which can variously be converted back, but still, as a heads up: it's pretty easy to burn off more than you make.

Economic flags seem to be getting rarer. I ran out of the one for -10% service, which I usually equipped on my T8-10 since my supply seems pretty limitless. What's interesting is that in the week or so since de-equipping all my ships I haven't got any more of them.

From that picture I can gather that you're not into farming FXP  but you do farm regular and Capitan XP.

100% @Rina_Pon I'm having flag issues too.

Althought full disclosure, I consider dropping under 500 on combat flags and dropping under 1000 on basic eco as an issue...

But I don't think they've undertuned THAT much, I'd take a guess that it's been undertuned in line with the reduced drop rates in things like santa crates.

This is where I have a problem though...

There is a direct combat buff available through signals that realistically you can only sustain in most games if you have spent money on the game in the form of premium time and/or a high tier credit earner.

I don't want to have a combat advantage over anyone because I have payed money.

I get having a credit sink in the game but tying it to a performance advantage I'm not a fan of.

Honestly I think if the signals were half the price they'd still be too expensive.

But I doubt WG will do anything about it, they are in the business of selling a combat advantage through playing or paying more.

Pretty much, though not XP so much anymore as I'm done grinding tech trees.

I'm not in a stable spot am I?

Well, this is the best I've been stocked for a LONG while...    At least in the CXP and FXP flags.

Yeah I meant for me 😛

lol

I used to keep a nice surplus of 1k on each flag...

I've used a few since, lol.

Time to go stingey on flags methinks, maybe just heal flag for high tiers and fire reduction on BBs...

Rookie numbers, gotta boost those rookie numbers...

Recommend buying the Shipbuilding containers in the Arsenal if you have leftover Coal.

I use all my monthly RB (all 1200 of it) for fire and flooding duration signal flags.

Well then why is it that?

She is obviously VERY strong and due to be removed because of that soon, so please explain what your reasons are for not purchasing her.

Thunderor and Small-length are in the same trashy, c*nc*rous category.

But Thund is a league trashier.
