I really enjoy playing this game. Testing out different layouts and ship designs. But i have, maybe a strange, question. 

Are we get some unique ship hulls, camouflages, skins or decorations dedicated to alpha testers, or who are pre-ordered this game in this eraly phase?

I mean this is not necessary, but i just wanted to ask this. What are your opinions about this Admirals?

I don't really see any need in doing this for a single player game. If it were a multiplayer game then sure, have some shiny gubbinz to show off. 

But eh either way it doesn't really matter to me. Neat if they do, okay if they don't. I'd perfer a future discount on DLC if there is any.

Discount on DLC is a nice thing to have. Good point! :)

This just sounds like it'll make people who didn't hear about the game earlier feel a bit sad, rather than anything positive. I'd rather be happy knowing we've made the game a little better by playtesting it.

 I’d say the most we should get is cosmetics. Anything that affect gameplay just feels wrong to request or accept as a reward for being an alpha tester.

I wouldn't mind too be honest.

Also alpha tester on our forum accounts too (maybe alpha 1 for the first alpha of the game and so on when the account actually played the game).

Forum account rank sounds more reasonable to me. Actual in game things still doesn't sound good to me.

I feel like the only thing which would make sense in-game would be fast unlocks for minor stuff locked behind achievements (eg alternative camouflage schemes and colours). That would be fair since everything can still be earned by people who get in later on.

 

Or you could go down the WoWs route and add a few cosmetic flags on the flagship in each encounter. So regular people just see the flag the Admiral flies while the Alpha crowd gets a second flag (can be disabled via settings).

I was going to make the same suggestion.

This is really good idea.
Won't harm any new players and will give alpha lads some seniority :P

Nothing in-game, I'd say. Except maybe a flag to fly at the top mast. Jolly Roger? Forum account title is okay.

The reward is being able to play the game and participate in its development.  This GIB ME GIB ME attitude is cringe 

I'm sorry but I really can't follow that logic I paid 50 dollars by choice, no one handed me a free key I decided to support the game early asking a for small in game cosmetic to show that is quite a small thing to ask.

Flags would be cool. Maybe we could also have little badges as well beneath the location section of our posts like on the world of warships forums? Again different Badges for when you joined and participated or something.

The only game stuff should be camos and flags if you are going to have in-game rewards but even then i would prefer forum stuff (too not make peeps scream too much).

Ships are a no no as they would be a balance nightmare, plus most likely non-customisable which defeats the purpose of this game.

if the game is not multiplayer some camos won't be too bad of an idea ^^
Al tho some badges or small things are more than enough a kind gesture.
Ships or hulls?... Ships absolutely no. Hulls... not sure about that. I won't mind but would it be too much or too little? Then again if it is never going to be usable in multi (if that ever is an option) then a hull with cool camo is not bad idea. Something that embodies Ultimate admiral (Mount rushmore like) Kuvahaun tulos: mount rushmore"

But with admiral theme or with all the ults embodied :)
Or just a camo like that :P (very high hopes)

Flags are cool idea and if they are easy to customize then it would be very very nice.
Arpegio fleet here we go :P

All in all a small good will gesture is enough for me but as a greedy person... a tailored skin is more than welcome and yes i will be picky tsun tsun if it's not majestic :D

 

Speaking of flags. IJN ships has civilian flags instead of imperial navy flags?
Design reason i suppose... same goes to Kriegs marine and Italian navy and russian navy (before the soviet era)??

IJN Navy,
1024px-War_flag_of_the_Imperial_Japanese_Army_%281868%E2%80%931945%29.svg.png

Not to be confused with IJA (imperial japanese army)

Flag of Italy (1861-1946) crowned.svg

Regina marina flag (italian navy just incase and no i did not make it small on purpose)

War Ensign of Germany (1867â1892).svg

German: Kaiserliche Marine, "Imperial Navy" 1871-1892 and War Ensign of Germany (1903â1919).svg

1903 to 1918 variant of imperial german navy

 

Naval Ensign of Russia.svg

Tsar navy (before the russian flag we have in the game which should not exist yet)

1024px-Naval_Ensign_of_the_United_Kingdom.svg.png

The royal navy but to be honest this is better flag
Kuvahaun tulos: yorkshire tea"

Yorkshire tea the best symbol of good navy and vigor. With this tea infused AP shells you can detonate even the most strongest ship before even built. Ah yes and the armor with the tea leaves makes Stalinium metal look like aluminum sheet :P......
