Hello everyone, as you might have noticed from earlier posts/videos, the new Japanese Chi-Nu Kai will most likely (allegedly it’s not 100 percent) have a regular Japanese flag (instead of the Imperial Rising Sun) as you can see here: The reason for this move is that while we Europeans and Americans have nothing against such symbol, for Korean and Chinese players it is offensive. Allegedly, it is not outright banned, but highly frowned upon. The Rising Sun flag in World of Warships trailer already caused an outrage amongst Korean players. Allegedly, a petition of 40 thousand people was made not to include this flag. This is actually a good example of how little we know of what goes on in there, because such a petition on European and American server would make major news, even on WoT scale. This is not a singular incident aimed at Wargaming, other artists, who used the Imperial flag also caused a scandal in South Korea. To quote the abovelinked article: “We will be removing the Rising Sun flag from the game in the future,” a moderator wrote on Wargaming’s official forum. “There has been quite a bit of discussion recently regarding this sensitive topic and I hope this clears some of the confusion.”
