Well I for one am outraged that they would try to make a profit on a game they developed:trollface:

 

It's bad enough that I have to play against better ships and players, now they will look better as well (that seems to be the only effect flags have on my results):(

When can we buy them?

If you use the amount of time it took us to get ships a ship in our premium shop, after all the other servers got ships, I'd say a few weeks.

Other than the ramming flags, I guess I'll get them the old fashioned way: in game. For free.

 

After all, the requirements for most of them are not too hard now, on a good day in a good ship....

Too bad you can't earn them for free if you only play PvE.

 

I'm looking forward to using some flags in that mode.

Earning flags in PvE is too abuse-able IMO, especially the First Blood one.

 

Also, PvE mode in this game is more like a training ground than proper game mode.

Well I'll stay in PvE thanks.

 

I have seen the muppet show you call PvP and frankly, I'd rather kill bots.

In case anyone wondered about the price:

- 16 gold for a +50% exp flag. Buying 100 flags costs the same as 10 days of prem.

- 6 gold for +20% credits flag, or 20% bonus to Fire extinguishing. 250 flags cost the same as 9 days of prem.

- 5 gold for 20% Flood recovery flag.

- 4 gold for 5% less repair fee.

 

Personally, I think the exp/credit flag is only worth it if you only play several times per day. Regular players would make more with premium time.

Fire extinguishing and Flood recovery are nice to have if you are in a BB though, price is reasonable.

 

If we convert that to in-game credits price:

- Flood recovery flag = 7500 cred

- Fire Extinguish flag = 9000 cred

- Credit bonus flag = 9000 cred (this one is too abuse-able lol)

- Exp bonus flag = 24000 cred.

- Repair fee flag = 6000 cred.

 

I could see that the exp and credit bonus flag, along with repair flag will never being purchasable with credits, it will break the game economy. Other flags however are possible.

 

Now if WG puts them on sale with a discount...:hiding:

Yup, I only play like 4-5 matches per day. So purchasing flags and premiums will be helpful. In fact I want more premium ships since I have been burned for using Atlanta wayyyyy too many time in the cbt.

...in extremely large amounts for relatively cheap prices

how do you feel about this?

 

I've always felt it was coming to the game. Afterall there are some flags that are simply to hard to earn or required you to do outlandish things. (Get a flag for my ship's magazine blowing up? Well ok..)

 

Honestly, I'd rather something like this than premium shells/aircraft load outs.

I always felt as if RNGod-san is personally apologizing to me every single time I get that flag... Like "please don't be mad, it's only a lucky shot. Here, have 10 mad-free games"...

Honestly i thought the signal flags would always remain a thing that can only be won.. If you can buy them for gold/money you should be able to buy them with credits as well.
