Having been a supertester from late 2016 to early 2018 I was granted the ST flag. Today it was removed from my account. :Smile_sad:

It was a reminder of those past ships tested and other ST'ers I knew. Now the last reminder is gone, so long old friend.

While the emblem may be gone you still have the knowledge that you have played a part in the direction the game has taken.  That's something to be proud of.

Isn't everyone saying that the direction the game is taking is wrong?  Backhanded compliment?

Sure it does.

In the club - wear the club badge.  Not in the club - do not wear the club badge.  A very normal situation worldwide.  What is the issue?

I suppose it depends if the badge is considered to be ‘Recognition of past service’, or ‘Recognition that you are “IN” the club’.

If the latter, it’s weird that BWS has only just lost it after being out of the program for years.

If they do that to Alpha and Closed Beta Tester Flag, I'll be pissed.

I've been carrying this flag since 2015.

WG should have at least sent an e-mail or something and give you a heads up as to why they are removing your "tester" flag.

It's just rude that they will just pull out something from your account for no reason and without even telling you what is the reason.

Especially if you have done service for them. Testing ships. And for free I might add.

 

The worse case scenario, WG suddenly pulls out your credits, your doubloons, or at worse, your premium ship from your account without even telling you or giving you a reason as to why they pulled it out.

Thanks for the support, guess there is no point getting worked up over it. 

I'll live, still have my Alpha flag and now I have room to run up one of the other 68 flags I have.

WG giveth

WG taketh away

Basically another reminder that nothing ingame that you have is actually yours, even the ones you bought; it's only there for as long as the game is there, or as long as the devs say so.

In the same boat as you - no pun intended. Kinda heartbreaking, but nothing can be done.

Sad times, but it is what it is. Just look back on the fond memories.

Could WG allow the rts cv mode for CO against AI mode? This is will not make other players unhappy.

I bought Kaga, Zeppelin, and Indomitable becasue the rts cv game mode attacted me. But I found that interesting gaming mode is gone forever, I was extremely disappointed and frustrated.

So why can't WG jsut bring back the rts cv mode for AI battle?

Yeah ... been one of the earliest adopters of this game during CBT.
Would've loved ABT but it was invite only.

Update:

My ST flag has been returned.

It warms me to think that players and WGing do care.

Perhaps it did not seem like a big deal when somebody took it away, but the fact that it has been returned tells me that they are paying attention, even to small time players like me.

I want to thank the community for offering support and also to WGing for understanding what a small token can mean to a player.

Thank you to all :Smile_honoring:

Come on. Bring it in....big hug, to all you guys and girls out there. :cap_like:

Apparently it was a setting screwup from what I understand from the cesspool that is reddit. You were not the only one.

Well at least they did something about it and I guess I am not the only one happy to see it returned.

Setting Glitch , what a reason , or an excuse ... I mean there is nothing to be changed there, then why bother tinkering with the setting when there is no need to change anything .. WG need a proper QA team and they badly need a proper CR team

Glad to see that WG fixed it.

It would be bad that WG would suddenly take away something you have worked hard for and earned it.

 

If WG did not return the flags, WG can and will abuse it.

Worse case scenario is that they silently remove some of your in-game resources because you have too much.

Not to mention the backlash that players would unleash against WG. And the lawsuits that WG would face.
