I am Algerian and we are a non-negligible community in the game. Since 2014, we have asked for the addition of our flag without results.

 

What is the reason you seem to avoid flags from Africa and the Middle East? We only find the flag of Israel, Jordan and South Africa while this part has more than 60 countries!

Is this a problem in terms of the independence of these countries? the majority of them being in the 40's, 50's and 60's On behalf of the community of Algerians who regularly play this game, I request the addition of the Algerian flag for the customization of tanks!

 

Of course, Moroccan, Egyptian, Iraqi flags would be welcome We are waiting for a serious response from Wargaming. thank you

 

 

to readers this topic, please support us in our approach, thank you!

Politics, religion or ongoing conflicts to name a few. Some nations like Iran, Irak etc don't want their flag in any game. In fear of being portrayed wrongly. It's why the other factions in BF 2 was called the Opposing force with fake flags, and not China and Iran. So it's not down to WG in some cases. China did sue EA for BF4 and the "China rising" DLC alone due to that.

 

So that's why this game lacks plenty of flags still... for many a reason.

As Balc0ra stated, some nations have a problem with it, not WG.

 

As far as I am concerned everyone can have his flag in the game, so I voted yes just in support.

None of the mentioned nations were well known for their tank armies during the period 1935 - 1945 when most low tier vehicles existed. Thus historically not accurate to put flags on them. Yes plenty of the mentioned nations acquired Soviet export tanks from the 1950's onwards but that's not really the point. Also with Iran/Persia which flag would you propose using from what period? Iran/Persia is a country with a lot of history.

the game is moving more and more towards the 60s-70s and many flags represent countries that did not exist before the fall of the USSR (Belarus, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Estonia, Kazakhstan)the game is moving more and more towards the 60s-70s and many flags represent countries that did not exist before the fall of the USSR (Belarus, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Estonia, Kazakhstan)

Honestly... I don't really care about flags but why not have more? I have nothing really against it.

The thing is - it is probably unnecessary effort at this point, especially given the fact that WG was mumbling something about revising customisation options entirely, so adding something now would be counter-productive, I guess.

True, but the way they seem to use the flags as emblems pretty much points to them being like XVM flags, simply to denote which modern country players are from. (Of course, people may actually be deceitful enough to use the flag of another country, not their own.) In this case, they opt for the current flags in use.

I literally could not care less about flags from any nation therefore I think they should add them all.

I come from the empire upon which the sun never sets.  I could care so very less about flags on tanks.  When I am on the internet.  I am just a dude playing a game.  What the hell does an accident of birth, have to do with identifying who you are?  I would rather see more emblems and legends to try to hint at my in-game persona.

Well.. if this game had the nation vs nation mode. I suspect they would be as upset as they were with EA. As that was said as an example about them being portrayed wrongly in their eyes. And wanted the flag removed from BF4 and the Chinese city map was given a fake name. As that's the reason why other nations like Iran don't do it of any game ever. And in other parts of the world... WOT shows different flags in the Tech tree. Inc on the Chinese server where each nation has fake flags. As for instance the Rising sun flag in China is a big no no still.

Just select NO and then for country choice "other".

 

Flags/Curtains for various North African colonial possessions at 1930 and what would have been on tier I tanks in those areas during that decade;

Algeria = French

Egypt = British

Iraq = British

Iran/Persia = British

Libya = Italian

Morocco = French

Saudi Arabia = British

 

Interestingly Abyssinia is shown as the only independent nation at that point, and presumably had it's own curtain/flag, before Mussolini and his tankettes invaded and Abyssinia came under the Italian curtain/flag.

[interesting argument to be had about Liberia and whether at that point it should have it's own curtain or be under the star spangled banner?]

if we take the historical value, a good part of the flags has no reason to be there

the flags represent the modern countries and not those of the time, I think especially the countries of the former USSR, Hong Kong

especially since the tank technology tree may be starting in the 1910s but now it ends until the 1970s

Moreover, apart from Iran and Morocco, the listed countries were major users of weapons of Russian origin

 

 

Algeria:

the AMX-13
T-34-85
T-54/55
T-62

 

Morocco :

AMX-13
T-54
M-48A3 Patton

 

Egypt :

Valentine
AMX-13
T-34-85
T-54/55
T-62

 

Iraq:

T-34-85
T-54/55
T-62
Centurion
M-24 Chaffee

 

Iran:

M-24 Chaffee
M-48 Patton
