I feel that when you go to buy a icon/flag/symbol/shield etc etc etc that visually effects your account, there should be a PREVIEW that shows your little thing that pops out when you take a seat in a game? the little gear or w/e? that shows how it would look with the shield changes/color changes and the icon/avatar/flag would look. I'll get pictures up later to help describe it.
Look at my sig.
Chances are, I made your account icon;
Deal with it.
