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 :)

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

No way I'm giving up flying the Jolly Roger on my knight and B, it's the reason flags were added :great:

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.

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