CTGW Poppys and Bleu ets

Did anybody catch the CTGW start up screen yesterday with Poppy and Bleu Et dated 11.11.11..? I saved a screenshot of it and posted it here: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4552758

Of course, it's a nice easter egg. My mod shows a deserted trench on that date.

Might it be bleuet de France
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bleuet_de_France

«Les voici les p’tits « Bleuets »


These here, these little "Bleuets"
Les Bleuets couleur des cieux


These Bleuets the color of the sky,
Ils vont jolis, gais et coquets,


Are beautiful, gay, stylish,
Car ils n’ont pas froid aux yeux.


Because they are not afraid.
En avant partez joyeux ;


Merrily, go forward
Partez, amis, au revoir !


Go on, my friends, so long!
Salut à vous, les petits « bleus »,


Good luck for you, little "blues"
Petits « bleuets », vous notre espoir ! »


Little "bleuets," you are our hope!
–Alphonse Bourgoin, from Bleuets de France, 1916.[2]

That feature with the poppies and the blue flowers was included in CTGW since the last official update V1.6.6 which is now quite a few years ago.

I'd suggest you better don't rant about the developers adding "new" cosmetic stuff rather than updating the game like you did over at Matrix forums, it makes you look a bit silly.

Just my 0.02$. ;)

I beg to differ..!! Moments ago I checked my start-up screen, there are no floral decorations present, as there were for Armistice Day 11.11 this year. Perhaps it was done on that day in years prior, none that I am aware of, not to say that I opened that window on those dates, if so: It's all new to me..!!! So excuse my ignorance if florals had been posted beforehand. People learn something new everyday that others have known all the long, does that make it a bad thing?

No, that does not make it a bad thing, of course not. But your rant over at Matrix seemed pretty harsh to me.

The poppies and flowers will always show on any 11.11 each year, that's what the scripts say.

Here, that's the way my mod looks on every 11.11 each year:
