It does look cool and far better than that dumb crew customization. But suppose your hiding behind a rock or ridge with a big here I am flag sticking up above your head.

Knowing that the Flag doesn't affect you being spotted. I doubt it lol. Once you're spotted. They can see you. Flag or not :)

Will WG ever have WoT offline like they promised?

I don’t think the flag is a spotting checkpoint or part of the hitbox to be an issue.

Doesn't make a difference really. Unless your fighting a bull, perhaps a waving flag might enrage them?

Artillery punishes flankers, not campers.

I vowed I would never get a flag tank. But didn't say anything about flying one from my tanks. Cool feature. 

I have customized my Yak flag and proudly fly it.

The flags have zero impact on whether you're spotted or not.

 

There's 4 checkpoints on the hull that can get you spotted.   One on each side, then front and rear.   Then another at/around the tip of the gun mantelet and another somewhere around center mass of top of the turret.    6 total overall points you can spotted.    you spot tanks if one of their checkpoints line up with your 2 checkpoints that are not the hull ones.

 

They're kind of corny, that said, I used the free ones.

 

 


  

Some people claim Ensk should be tier restricted.   I don't believe their lies. 

Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of bad advice from players who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.

The term "Casual Gamer" is actually not accurate enough anymore to describe what the larger market is like. They want the illusion of accomplishment but not the effort associated with it. The players aren't really doing anything, something else is doing it for them, and the player takes the credit for it.

Flags aren't working correctly, many times you will see blank flags with no logos or anything.
