Read the part about "country" again.

As much as it seems, PR is not a country.

Heck, if you get a hat, Texas gets one, we're ten times the size and actually were once a separate country.

3.) It doesn't fit the world paradigm.
2.) I'm not in it for the money.

You have the Mexican flag, lol.

And no Isreal hat? That is one of the  most important countries on the planet.


Because rich bankers are more important than starving people.

The above is silly, Puerto Rico at least is a commonwealth and elects its own politicians and is not inside the USA. 

 

Texas was its own country in the 1800's and begged the USA to annex them less than 10yrs of them being a country. To compare that to Puerto Ricans who want a hat is silly.

If Puerto Rico gets a hat, then Yemen gets a hat.

I'm puerto rican and I don't really see what's the issue? Why would I want a hat with a flag that I've seen endlessly in my lifetime when I can pick something else that suits me better?

Not arguing against ya, but I hardly see why it's worth making it a point.

It was weird not seeing a Puerto Rico hat but there was a Cuba hat, I guess Fidel Castro loves TLOU....

 

And why wouldn't you want a hat with your flag on it, when you kill people they'll know that it was a Puerto Rican, who doesn't want to bring pride to their country of origin?

 

It's just a game at the end of the day but it would've been nice to see it...

Arzharkhel the problem I have as a Puerto Rican with not being added along with other flags is as someone mentioned above it was based on the 22 countries who play the game the most. According to that list you, I and a crap load of Puerto Ricans living in the states and on the island were overlooked like our money doesn't count...forget race, at least respect me as a consumer. Am I to believe more people in Cuba play TLOU than in Puerto Rico? if you had to think about that for more than a second I'm saddened by the American school system because Cubans (in Cuba) struggle to afford day to day items and do not have a high number of PS3s in their households. Call of duty is another game guilty of excluding us in their flag list wich is especially desturbing to me as a Marine 

 

The socioeconomic status of Cuba and Puerto Rico are both very similar. One may argue that the education system in Cuba is better.

Yes, this whole topic is silly.

 

Puerto Rico is a commonwealth?  So is Massachussetts.  So is Virginia.

I like this topic =)

 

Glad to see there's other people who share my opinion about the Puerto Rico Flag Hat, maybe they'll add it in the next patch =P

 Yes however , these commonwealths you are mentioning are states inside the USA who have to abide by the USA constitution. Puerto Rico does not have to and IS NOT a state of the USA. For these obvious reasons its a totally different case. Not many Puerto Ricans in Texas so you may not be too familiar with the huge differences.

Oh, I'm aware.  While not afforded the protection of the constitution, PR is under US Sovereignty and Law.  It has a representative in Congress.  It's powers are delegated to it BY the US Congress.

 

It lacks the benefits of statehood, but enjoys independence in some format.  Yadda yadda yadda.

 

 

 Puerto Rico is not a country.

 

Are any of the flag hats from non-Nation States?
