Beginning of game Premium account question

I’ve recently gotten a premium account. Any game that I join, I’m noticing that initially, it doesn’t show that I have a premium account (white emblem, not yellow - and if I go into the premium section, it tells me to purchase the upgrade). If I exit the game and reload it, it correctly shows me as being a premium member. This only happens when a game is first started.

The other thing I’ve noticed is that the emblem and ship colors that I choose have to be rechosen and saved for each game. Is this by design? I just wasn’t sure, so I figured I’d ask.

The Premium account bug is a known one, they are still working on that.

I think having to choose your ship colours is by design as when you join a game someone may already have those colours in use.
