Since the upgrade I've added XVM and I seem to be the only Union Jack bearer,I've only seen 1 other since the upgrade.

I've tried both EU servers but I don't go above tier 7 atm...are UK players above tier 7?Are there few UK players?

Just curious.

Oh look it's this thread again.

 

We're a minority and also seem to be less likely to use XVM or display our own flag on it.

 

XVM just puts me on tilt when I can tell if a player is worthless or not just by watching what they do and where they go for a few seconds.

 

(In before this thread devolves into another 15 pages of people arguing about politics)

They don't give an option for the Saltire.

A majority of the XVM users don't set a flag in the settings. Then they get the default one, and that's not the Union Jack one. And the few that use the flag setting take other flags then their own tbh. So not really a solid reflection on where they are from.

Otherwise we would see much less "noob teem no help" from certain players :coin:

I'm British, but I haven't used the Union Flag on XVM.  It made me a bit of target, I found, so I swapped if for something blue with stars on.

I had no flag by default either and I'm from Ireland. I think people that get it by default are those that have a different client language setting which XVM can detect

Something blue with stars on? Sounds a bit vague, is that some kind of a fantasy flag?

Not to be all boring & pedantic, but it's only the Union Jack when it's on a boat/ship (Jack Mast of a yacht if I recall correctly).

All other times it is referred to as the Union Flag.


 

Hang on a mo, that WAS boring & pedantic wasn't it?:(

The large bulk of players on teams that I see when I play are Polish and Czech. You will see this with the Polish and Czech greetings at the beginning of the battles, the Polish and Czech flags on their tanks, names like Bartek, Marius etc etc along with names ending with PL, Pol, CZ and so on. Why is this game so dominated and so popular with Polish and Czech players? I have no idea.

I asked during the beginning of a battle "Why so many Polish and Czech players in this game" but it was received with a racist interpretation "Why is there a problem?" so I just left it at that lol

Yes, it was.

 

Also consider... 'Such use was given Parliamentary approval in 1908 when it was stated that “the Union Jack should be regarded as the National flag”.'

Guess it's one of those 'common use' things.
