Location flags (yes I know its not that important.. but if you read, you might find its more important than you think!)

ok, so, currently we can set our location flag as whatever we want, from the selection.

Can this be changed, so when we try to change the flag.. it only allows you to select from flags near your location.. so.. for example.. if your in germany.. the game allows you to choose countries from europe.. (because of course, it might get the country slightly wrong, but it wont get it so wrong that it says your in australia when your in egypt)

EDIT: if you dont want to show your real location, you can always set another. or show no flag..

my reason: random people from egypt change flag to the UK flag (im british), and they then whisper me, doing this in front of my eyes.. and say "hey man, guild I need"......... thinking because they have a british flag.. I will actually add them to the guild.

I am sure it doesnt only happen to me, I am sure it doesnt only happen on my server.. so if this happens to you, and you find it annoying.... get it stopped... force people to use a flag that, whilst may not be 100% correct.. is near enough correct.

Or maybe a better suggestion would be to remove the flags.. and do it by continent.. *shrug*

introduce some price
First time you can chose your flag free (at char creation or after lev 70 promo) .
Then pay some cps (like change name or dbs for reallot AP) for change flag.
i suggest also that only rb player can change (paying) the flag.
maybe that can decrease fake flag

Well, it's not hard to tell them apart at all. It's usually kids that choose to hide their origins.

OP - Also a Brit here. Simply solution. If they can't speak English properly, don't let them in the guild.

This applies to:

- Turks (who speak lyke thys);
- anyone that asks for a finger;
- Egys generally; and
- any one who is in fact from an English speaking country who doesn't know the difference between "your" and "you're".

Quote:
if your in germany..
Unfortunately the latter also applies to you.

There are a *lot* of people who keep changing their country flag. I'd suggest having an entry for your nationality when you make your account, which is used to set the flag permanently when the character is created. It wouldn't prevent people from entering false nationalities, but they'd be stuck with whatever they'd chosen.

That doesn't help with existing accounts, though.

Look on the bright side: at least the players who make make names which are invisible (all tabs) can't hide so easily!

But why does it matter? What are you trying to gain by forcing people into a certain choice? How does that benefit the community?

Sure, the flags are somewhat good and i personally use 2 different flags. I'm born in germany and I live there, but my mother's from romania and i feel more like a romanian, than like a german, even though i don't speak romanian at all. Some of my chars have the GER flag, some the RO and if people ask me about my nationality (mostly about the romanian), I say, i'm a half-romanian and i feel more like one than like a german and it's okay for them.

But now, here's the fact:
Many liars out there, still say they're e.g. british even, if they are from the african continent and even if any briton notices their lies, simply because of their bad english (e.g. no man, i frm inglend) or a foreign language (foreign to the country they chose).

So, to make this feature worth being implemented, the flags should be IP based. Based on where your char has been logged in for the very first time. It is possible! I know it! If it wasn't, the NA and US only servers wouldn't be possible.
Either make this feature IP based, or delete it.

And it hurts you when people lie about their location because? Also not every country have its own flag.

Yes, so what? They are location flags, not original location flags.

Gonna have to pass.
well if you are living in America... you can most likely speak English
if you are living in china.. you can most likely speak Chinese

if you are living in the middle east, you can likely speak Arabic.

I thought the point of the flag system (as mentioned below) was to allow people to find others they can actually speak to.

sure I get that if someone is FROM Cambodia.. and living in AMERICA.. they might want to choose the Cambodian flag... but.. does the game even have the Cambodian flag? I highly doubt it.. so clearly its about where your players are PLAYING from.. not their original location.

my friend is thai.. lives in America. so the character has the American flag.

if the flag system is about allowing people to know where someone is from (If they choose that they want people to know) THEN.. it should be TRUTHFUL.

if people DONT want you to know, they should be able to choose "no flag". (I even offered a that they can choose from LOCAL flags to their area if needs be)


hemp.. just a question.

follow this conversation.

player - hi hemp, how are you?
hemp - hi, I am good thanks, you?
player - *some Arabic thing I cant even type*

you check their flag... and your flag.. yours says USA, theirs says USA, then 5 minutes later theirs says SPAIN.. when another person jumps on screen with a spain flag.

how would you feel hemp?

and the AMOUNT of messages.. are like this

alxndr speaks to HeLLAngeL:

alxndr speaks to HeLLAngeL:

alxndr speaks to HeLLAngeL:

alxndr speaks to HeLLAngeL:

alxndr speaks to HeLLAngeL:

alxndr speaks to HeLLAngeL:



^ I received those.. while typing this post.. and not looking at CO.. yes I can block them, but, aside from the original issue which I posted about (people LYING about their location just to get into a place that quite honestly.. they have no reason to go...).. the whole being spammed by people constantly in a foreign language to what you know. is an issue MOST players of ALL languages have.

now.. me.. receiving messages like that.. I am just like "pah", and close the window. I cant read it, I cant reply.. they are just annoying.

but people changing their flag to my countries flag... when they are clearly from an Arabic, or Chinese, or whatever country.. in an attempt to join my guild, where only people who can speak English (or French, or even an Arabic guild with an annoying English person trying to join), is just silly.. and if you actually got your programmers to actually put in a system that has a point.. other than allowing people to LIE about themselves....

well I cant be bothered arguing about this with you.. but the day when someone gets fraudulently scammed because they are stupid.. and believe someone is from their country and needs help.. because your programmers couldent be bothered to put in an IP based system and allowed instead people to FREELY choose to say "im Australian" when they live in Africa or Europe or elsewhere and haven't even been to Australia... is the day CO closes because they get sued for putting in the facility for someone to lie and fraudulently gain money.

sure, I maybe chatting in the extreme on the possibility of a fraud case... but hey.. who knows, and if it did happen.. I would be saying the words "I told you so", meaning this post.

the only thing I have to say is..

"I have 4897587487548758745 Ugandan dollars sir, if you allow me to transfer your monies from your bank account we can refill your bank account with the monies we wish to give you, can I have your bank number sir!?"

- reference : fonejacker

difference would be "hey, am enlish, I will giv yao moneis if you do me a faver"
