"Oh yes, your president asked us specially for a pre-tournement exhibition match." The blonde says with elegent cheerfulness.You are the Commander of the M26E1 "Super" Pershing heavy tank Black Jack, and just when you were starting to not hate that red head twerp, she goes and does it again."Tomorrow?" You say, incredulously. The team had gotten their first day of actual training- some of them were having problems driving in a straight line, or even hitting things at near-point blank range. And Anzu thought it would be a great idea to throw them at a what you can only assume is a seasoned team? You hands ball into a fist reflexively as blondie nods. Elegently. Her red-haired friend is still looking at your tank with a bored stare.You can't handle it and look back at your gunner, who looks just as shocked as you are. "Rose, she's doing it to me again." You pinch the bridge of your nose.>"Wait... Who are you two, anyway?">"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself.">"Excuse me while I go wring our president's neck."
>>24945416>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself."Being polite would throw off the Britaboos
>>24945416>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself."I'm surprised that our grandfather hasn't tanned our ass for how rude we are to ladies.
Wait... Girls und Panzer? I thought that show was just K-On with tanks, cute girls hanging around not doing much and there are tanks in the background. Is there really enough there to base an entire quest around?
Can we become a serial killer? That'd be the only way this thing could become interesting at this point.
>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself."After that run and find Miho for super planning session
>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself."we should at least keep our composure even despite Anzu being herself (though out of a team to face off against, it could be worse)
>>24945460Waifu shit is how.Actually, start a K-On quest, I'm sure faggots on /tg/ would gobble it up.
>>24945460There's actually a decent amount of stuff for a tank fan to love, including the battles. Yeah I found it hard to believe until I read up on it.>>24945491My, you lack of a life even by /tg/ standards if you're going into a thread just to bash its readers.
>>24945416>>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself."We also need to get that fucking paint before the match. Talk to grandpa, maybe he has a hookup.
>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself."
>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself.">"Excuse me while I go have some... words with our president."No need to be rude to the guests when it is Anzu who needs some yelling at.
>>24945503>There's actually a decent amount of stuff for a tank fan to love, including the battles. Yeah I found it hard to believe until I read up on it.Hang on there are actual battles? My friend told me that it was just a high school club of girls being cute and restoring a tank (more being cute than tank restoring). He never said anything about actual tank fighting.Are the battles any good?
>>24945416>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself."We are a Gentleman and a Tanker
>>24945724They're nice though if you're really into WoT or real tank battles, some of what happens will have you raise an eyebrow, though if you go along with it and not think so hard, you'd enjoy it.
>>24945724Maybe you should watch a few eps... just sayin'Also>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself."
>>24945780...Did that tank just spinkick another tank?>>24945754I've just recently started playing WoT actually, it's fun but I'm not really into tanks at all.
>>24945806Yes it did. There's this gem as well.
>>24945806Sensado mother fuckeror if you got hiryuu subs tankwando
>>24945806>but I'm not really into tanks at allWe better fix that, mustn't we?
>>24945718>multi-track driftingevery god damn time
>>24945780>tfw you got a sanic skin for the ECLI like that fuckeralso>"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself."
>>24945844An E-100 goomba, ouch. Reminds me of that pic when physics were first on the test server, some poor AMX-13 at that same bridge got pancaked by a falling Maus.
>>24945724most episodes feature battles, a few battles span 2 episodes.
>>24945857I much prefer the name tankwando to senshado.
>>24946127Nah, I ain't bout that life. Better than Commie troll subs tho
You squash your urge to start screaming and punching things, as appropriate as it seems for this situation; it's not these girls fault that Oorai's class president is retarded or something. "I do apologize," You start, trying to soften your tone to something more polite than seething rage. "I don't think we've been introduced." You say, sticking your hand out to shake.The girl elegantly giggles. "Oh, I'm sorry, I was so caught up with your tank..." She shakes your hand elegantly. "I am Darjeeling, Captain of the Senshado team for St. Gloriana Girls Academy." She says. "And this is my gunner, Orange Pekoe."You blink. Did they really name themselves after teas? "So, where's Assam?" Throwing out the first tea you can think of. Darjeeling didn't seem to have a problem with humor anyway.Darjeeling smiles at you. "My driver couldn't make it for this trip." You really aren't sure if she's going along with the joke. You introduce yourself and Rose before Darjeeling moves to look at your tank."It is a magnificent beast, isn't it?" She says quietly, with a hint of awe in her voice.>"Yeah, it's been in my family since the Korean War.">"Yeah, most power production tank America produced during the war.">Other
>>24946153>"Yeah, it's been in my family since the Korean War."
>>24946153[x] "Yeah, it's been in my family since the Korean War."
>"Yeah, it's been in my family since the Korean War."I'd think this'd fit best
>>24946153>"Yeah, it's been in my family since the Korean War."Honestly can't think of a better response.
>>24946153>"It is a magnificent beast, isn't it?" She says quietly, with a hint of awe in her voice.Oh shitShe's on her way to being smitten.Start naming STATS, MOTHERFUCKER!"Yeah, it is. 90 mm gun, muzzle velocity of 3,750 ft/s (1,140 m/s) with the T30E16 APCR shot. With this baby, you could penetrate a Panther's frontal armor at up to 2,600 yd (2,400 m)."Then turn to look at her and give her a wink.
>>24945844Huh, does /tg/ actually play WoT?I've been looking for an excuse to get back into it.
>>24946199DARJEELING ROUTE IS GO
>>24946199I vote for this. Make sure we have our best shit-eating grin on as well.
>>24946207Some people do, more so since SWQ started running as it started a trend of stuff with /k/-type stuff.
>>24946207I play WoT. Avoid clans like the plague though.arty a shit
>>24946153>"Yeah, it's been in my family since the Korean War. Though I don't think he'd take kindly to being called a beast."
>>24946199inb4 "not as good as the glorious Churchhill VII"
>>24946207I'm playing WoT right now and checking threads in between games>>24946153>"Yeah, it's been in my family since the Korean War."Also I don't know if anyone else caught it but a Japanese hobby magazine did a 15 (or so) page artical on new GuP models and stuff. I can dump if you guys want it
>>24946279yes please, we need something to fill the thread while we wait for OP
>>24946247arty are shit?They aren't my favourite to be sure. Currently I use the AMX 50-100. Moderate success and great fun when I platoon with my buddy. Who also owns an AMX 50-100.Mince meat of any tank we catch alone and decent skirmishers. Just can't take a hit.Don't suppose anyone else also laments the horrible things they did to the luch, eh?
>>24946278All we have to do is mention those extra 15mm we have on her precious Mk. VII
>>24946278Churchill VII is better
>>24946318>tfw solo a churchill VII as ECL because the player is a retard
>>24946279I'd rather not waste the image limit though if that doesn't threaten it, then alright.
>>24946323>Gun has a full 400 m/s less muzzle velocity than our Pershing>BetterHa...HA!
>>24946199do it blackjack DO IT. Don't make me get the booze again
>>24946397Not everyone wants to go after a girl on a whole another ship, not when there's plenty of choices on the ship we are on.
>>24946358trust me, it won't, if we don't argue pointlessly in this thread it wont break autosage
>>24946416I sure as hell want to go for Best Girl Besides, a little flirting won't automatically lock us onto her route.If anything it'll just fluster her and give us an advantage in further social interactions.
HAHA, TIME FOR TANKS.
>>24946279>I'm playing WoT right now and checking threads in between gameshah me too
>>24946450I would be down for some flirting. Perhaps back-foot her enough that she is thinking about our...cannon, rather than the match.
Posting best tea.
>>24946450I'll politely say that I beg to differ on the matter of best girl. That and I get the feeling flirting would egg on such people to do it more and more and if that happens, odds are things will get uncivil.
>>24946422OK then dump commencing
>>24946477I just finished playing myself. What do you run?
>>24946477Yes I'm not the only one>tfw 10k more ex till vk 30 P
>>24946497I respect your opinion and will change my terminology from Best Girl to My Favorite Girl.Now, as to flirting egging people on to do it even more, I'd say that's nothing more than a slippery slope that we could easily avoid, yes?
Yo OP, ya got a post for the logs? Or anyone?
>>24946518>tfw 10k more ex till vk 30 Pgot any tier 10's? im working on my 8th and i swear this grind is going to kill me or my bank account
>>24946504At the moment mostly alternating between a Grille, S-35 CA (dat 17 pdr) and the Tiger PHow do you roll?
>>24946530Sounds good. While I do not share your tastes, I do second flirting with her for the aforementioned reasons.
>>24946563not that anon, but I run SPershing-> T34-> T57 Heavy-> JTiger 88 in a never ending cycle of credits and xp to waste more money on
Wonder what was in that tea...
>>24946542nah I'm a noob; best I have is a pz IV. Don't laugh. >>24946531not OP buthttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Girls%20und%20Panzer%20Quest%20Enjoy
Just got my T-50 the other day.>My face when forceful introduction to scout tank matchmaking
>>24946563Completionist. Must has all da tanks. All dem!Just a bunch of T5's really, working to several t6's and such, but I did not really start playing till recently.
>>24946530She's a nice girl and all though I feel it undercuts the fact we were placed at Oorai and all its fine choices. I'm sure you would feel similar if our positions were reversed.
>>24946610the pz 4 is a great little tank, even more awesome with the 105 and gold derp, but thats getting nerfed in the next patchwhat tier 10's are you aiming at?
>>24946615At least you can drift
>>24946563Currently only maining the ECL AMX, aiming for the T-50-2 and the Leopard I
>>24946615Its bad. like really bad. Like horibad. Because MM is a dick and loves sticking you with t8 games and no arty. Such a grind. Such a fucking grind.
>>24946473>dat shot it takes to the engine block mid air
>>24946650>T-50-2Prepare to lose money no matter how well you do.
>>24946609Probably the same stuff my girlfriend puts in mine
You smile. "Yeah, it's got the prototype T-54 main gun. Thirty-Seven-Fifty feet per second muzzle velocity. With HVAP it'll go clean through a Panther, glacis to rear plate, at a thousand yards." You walk up and lean against it- if there's anything you can talk about this proudly it's Black Jack. "By the time their friends even hear the report, another round's on the way. And Rose here can damn near pick flies off a wall with it." You say. No reason not to put a bit of caution in the back of their mind if you're gonna be fighting them."Oh my..." She says, walking around it, dragging her hand across the side of it's wheelwell. You smile inwardly. You've definately impressed upon her just what kind of tank she's up against, maybe she'll think twi- "Don't you ever wash it?""Wassat?" You say, jolted out of your fantasies of starting your very own little tank panic."It's filthy!" She says, showing you the slightly dingier tip of her finger. "We would never allow one of our tanks to fall into such disgrace.">"Well we were just out yesterday doing practice and that Panzer IV's been kicking up all sorts of dirty while they were firing for training this morning...">"It's a tank, lady, not a Ferrari- a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it.">"Patrick, Richard! Didn't I tell you two to wash Black Jack this morning?!"
>>24946666I was told I needed to attain speed nirvana or something.
>>24946650the t-50 and -2 both get raped by MM and shitty teammates, the leo is great but its very much an 'I MUST BE EVERYWHERE' tank, it has no armor, T5's can damage you, so you need to stay back and use your speed to do passive scouting runs and snipe, but man can that thing relocate like a champ
>>24946638teir 10 not really, I honestly just want the tiger P for now.
>>24946638Speaking of that, any chance we can get the school to shell out for a 10.5cm derp for Miho's Panzer?
>>24946685>"Well we were just out yesterday doing practice and that Panzer IV's been kicking up all sorts of dirty while they were firing for training this morning..."
>>24946658>t8Dude there were like 4 t9 heavies on each team. On the other hand, I got more exp for failing horribly and dying in 30 seconds than I do for an average game in my t4 medium so I'm not bitching.
In other WoT news, Tracking Xp/Credits.Yay Or Super fucking Yay?
>>24946686Don't get me wrong I'll gladly lose 5000 credits a game for that delicious 72 kph, nothing beats running circles around all of the enemy heavys
>>24946685Awww, naw, this fucking bitch did not just...>"Well we were just out yesterday doing practice and that Panzer IV's been kicking up all sorts of dirty while they were firing for training this morning. And quite frankly little miss, I don't like that tone. It's a tank, not a Ferrari, a little dust on the plates ain't gonna hurt it."
>>24946685>"Patrick, Richard! Didn't I tell you two to wash Black Jack this morning?!"Good help these days...
>>24946704the Porsche Tiger is great fun, decent mobility, great front armor and a good gun, it is an awesome city fighterbut everything after it sucks arse, id suggest trying a different line after you elite the tigerP
>>24946685>>"It's a tank, lady, not a Ferrari- a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it."Keep the important bits clean, and all will be well.
>>24946685>other"It's a tank, not a porcelain mantelpiece. Having a bit of dirt is good for the target profile."
>>24946685>"It's a tank, lady, not a Ferrari- a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it."Cant let a pretty face weasel all the info out of us
>>24946712heh, sometimes. That depends. A decent team makes it worth it. But MM and shitty Randoms cost money too.
>>24946685[x] "Well we were just out yesterday doing practice and that Panzer IV's been kicking up all sorts of dirty while they were firing for training this morning...">>24946722'oh my fucking god finally' yay.
>"Well we were just out yesterday doing practice and that Panzer IV's been kicking up all sorts of dirty while they were firing for training this morning...">"It's a tank, a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it."With combat vehicles, I'd sooner tank my chances with soemthing dirty than something clean. It's like the comparison between the knight in sparkly clean armor and the knight in messy armor, which one do you think gets shit done?
>>24946685>Memories of scraping two feet of mud off the Bradleys after FTX>"It's a tank, lady, not a Ferrari- a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it."

>>24946725No, no like someone told me to get the safety removal, lend lease oil and food bonus and to go fast.
>>24946768well i know what I'm doing next game
>>24946685>Other"Lady, this TANK has been getting itself dirty since the Korean war, where it kept my Grandpa alive, its seen worse and it takes it all in its stride, and frankly, your insinuation that it is a fragile porcelain doll is insulting, to Blackjack, and its history"
>>24946685"It needs all the impromptu camouflage it can get after our braindead President went and repainted it vomit-inducing blue."Let's not let her bait us. Counterattack instead.
I just started with the Americans. What are some tips to surviving the M3 challenge and even having fun?
>>24946761Actually given the amount of downtime, vehicles should be spotless unless they're in the field or just back from it. If it's just Darjeeling being a self-important wannabe DI about cleanliness, then blow her off about how Black Jack survived Korea, it can survive a little dirt.
>>24946685>"It's a tank, lady, not a Ferrari- a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it."
>Not caring about keeping your tank cleanThat's a blammin'
>>24946712protip, everyone will hate you for suicide scouting, you will make orders of magnitude more if you do scouting circles, running within visual range and running away, always have an exit, and with awesome camo you can passive scout like a motherfucker, find a shrub and make babby's with it
>>24946685>"Well we were just out yesterday doing practice and that Panzer IV's been kicking up all sorts of dirty while they were firing for training this morning...">"It's a tank, lady, not a Ferrari- a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it."
>>24946797>>24946685THIS Righteous indignation ho!
>>24946797this this this
>>24946827Shrub babby's are best babby's. For TD's, Scouts, and Arty.
>>24946815>m3>funsorry bro>>24946739Oh well, at this rate its going to take me long enough to get to tiger P as it is
>>24946819True, but it's being used right now and she came off as emphasizing cleanness above all else.
>>24946685"It's a tank, ma'am, not a Ferrari- a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it. Still...""Patrick, Richard! Didn't I tell you two to wash Black Jack this morning?!" Sigh for effect.Try to say it nicely.
>>"It's a tank, lady, not a Ferrari- a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it."This tank was built to last World War 2, and proved its mettle in the Korean War. Plus, it isn't like the tank is caked in 5 inches of mud or the like that might actually risk malfunction.
>>24946815Just keep playing and let the Stockholm syndrome take over.
>>24946685>"It's a tank, lady, not a Ferrari- a bit of dirt ain't gonna hurt it.""Dirt didn't hurt it in korea, didn't hurt us in WWII, WWI, or hell, even the revolution"
>>24946797GOD BLESS AMERICATHIS
>>24946864>Oh well, at this rate its going to take me long enough to get to tiger P as it isi hate to say it, but a week of premium can do fucking wonders for the grind if you can set aside some time (and like $10)
>>24946827Like I said, I failed miserably. I can't want to see what I make when I actually have a good run with it--but that will have to wait until I'm out of the boonies and have less than 350 ping.

If Darjeeling is this smitten, just imagine how Kay's gonna react. Especially if we offer her a ride.>>24946722>Tracking Xp/Credits.I just fucking came.
>>24946943Bro...We're already half-way into her pants if we show her Blackjack...
>>24946943Probably like Hana when she was shooting. Though, to be honest, Darjeeling's probably acting like this to get information off of us.
>>24946894Nah I could spend that $10 on some good weed then play WoT and just have fun not giving a fuck like I am now. Plus putting money in F2P games just irks me; its all good if people wanna do it, but I can't.
>>24946943I know right. I think the only thing that could make 8.6 really worth it is a buff the the JagdPz.IV's Long 88's pen.
>>24946960we're already halfway into her pants for being male and AMERICANwe're actually at risk of Blackjack stealing Kay from us
>>24946979>8.6>105 derp nerfmy churchhill III shal take back its throne now
>>24946943Maybe it's the paranoia talking, but I somehow doubt Darjeeling is really that smitten. I figure she's putting on a bit of an act, probing for intel and seeing how loose we are with our secrets.
>>24946975>weedi hate you now>dat tigerwhere the fuck can i get one and how much
I can't wait to see if our grandpa slaps us upside the head for being just a pansy-ass sentimental wimp that we have to bristle with indignation at the slight remark questioning our ability.
>>24946988>already halfway into her pants for being male and AMERICANHer grandfather'd probably like us. Hell he might be an old war buddy of our grandpa. If OP decides to embrace the theory about her grandpa being a Korean-era or 'Nam-era GI anyway.
>>24947004not really. The Churchill still has gun deficiencies. Just means Hetzers and M4's and Kv derpers will have a little more even field against us.What? The StuGIII might be my main, but I run a Churchill as a secondary.
>>24947022>character does anything you personally don't like>Everybody who voted for this is stupid, chars grandfather should slap him.when are you going to leave?

>>24947009That's a possibility, god knows people are chomping at the bait without thinking.>>24947022Me too as I want to see what he thinks of his grandson being so overly serious about things. I get the feeling he's past the age of caring about such things.>>24947069>implying he's worse than the people who wanted to paint the tank with Anzu's blood over a paint job.hahaha
>>24946615Be thankful you got a tank with decent speed.I had to go through the PzKpfw 38 nA>shit speed>shit maneuverability>shit gun>Jap-level armor

>>24947083>one guy makes a dark jokeThis is 4chan. This is a website where "rape the maids" is considered an acceptable bit of sarcasm when asked "wat do". I'd recommend you see a doctor about removing the stick from your ass and getting your skin thickened a bit.
>>24947019Im not sure that exact tiger is out yet. Might be able to pre-order from amiami. Also the figure of the girls are going to be 1/35 so they will be compatible to any 1/35 scale model. Furthermore haters gonna haaaaaaaaaaaate
>>24947083He's about as bad.>reasonable character action? Fuck that, he's talking back to a waifu, he should be slapped by the grandfather who would likely approve of him having something resembling a spine.Repainting the tank in anzus blood was pretty awful as well, though I at least agreed that the tank needs repainting, actual violence however is not the answer.
>>24947069>Everybody who voted for this is stupid, chars grandfather should slap Anzu.Fixed.
>>24947109No Anon, I made that joke.
>>24947118>removing the stick from your ass and getting your skin thickened a bit.Then why don't you thicken your skin a bit when a girl questions your ability to command?
>>24947137>actual violence however is not the answer.Blasphemy!
>>24947087I liked my pz. 38 nA
>>24946685>"The Grease keeps the rust off ORIGINAL factory parts Missie, and the dirt is what we get from working hard with him. if a tank dosn't have SOME dirt on it, your not training hard enough."how about that?
Douchbaggery and Pansy are not binary. I think that we are currently acting in an assertive IC fashion; Blackjack is our pride and joy much like a prized classic car.
"Darjeeling, if I may be blunt." You start. "It's a tank, and not one of your prissy little English jobs either- it can handle a little bit of dirt and mud." You're a bit annoyed now. One does not simply accuse you of not taking care of Black Jack. "It's seen every kind of dirt you can imagine, lady. Sand, Mud, Dust- you ever seen what mud does when it gets cold enough? Makes little mudsicles that hang down off anywhere that doesn't move regularly."Rose joins in at this point. "We actually had to get out and break it off every few hours or it'd start weighing the tank down." She says informatively."Black Jack'll bounce a German Eight-Eight off the glacis. A little bit of grime ain't gonna hurt it.""Oh, I don't doubt that, but having a clean tank is a matter of pride. For us, anyway." She says, boredly rubbing the dirty from her fingers. "We at Gloriana would never fight dirty like this."Orange Pekoe speaks up again. "And what would possess your team to paint your tank in these vulgar colors?">"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea...">"I happen to like the colors- they display our spirit and individuality and they certainly won't stop us from putting the hurt on your team tomorrow.">Other.
>>24947197>"I happen to like the colors- they display our spirit and individuality and they certainly won't stop us from putting the hurt on your team tomorrow."We snark now
>>24947197>Otherbegin ranting in english until rose hits us
>>24947208i agree with this
>>24947118judging from the hostile undercurrent, it came off as completely serious.>>24947137Well while it annoyed me, but some people took excessive offense at that. It makes me wonder if they took more offense at this than something truly offense worthy.>>24947197You know only one vote is going to be chosen right? But I'll try tide pissing anyways.>"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea...">"But supposedly they display our spirit and individuality, that's what our school council president says."
>>24947208We need to do this, preferably with something mentioning how there isn't a single bucket of olive paint on this boat.
>>24947197>"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea..."In fact, Anzu had best have that paint ready now if she wants to see us on the field."I'm so sorry Anzu, I'd love to be in the competition, but Black Jack has an urgent need for repairs."
>>24947197>"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definitely weren't our idea..."
>>24947197>"Whatever madness that afflicts the Class president is the cause of it, now if you excuse me ladies I have to go meet with my CO"
>>24947197>"I happen to like the colors- they display our spirit and individuality and they certainly won't- Oh fuck it, it wsa Anzu's idea and if she doesn't fix it she's dead
>>24947197[x] "Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea..."Our President is not wise.
>>24947197"That same old 'pride' convinced a certain someone at school to pull this stunt on our tank. Let's just say I wasn't amused, and am getting the situation resolved."
>>24947238yea, and what day is it? she was meant to have it repainted by tuesday morning otherwise we're driving off the side of the ship, snorkels or no
>>24947236what this guy saidAlso>yes they are making this
>>24947197>>"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea...""If you have some OD green paint to spare, I would gladly take you to dinner as recompense"
>>24947197>Other"Black Jack was painted in this manner as part of boosting school morale and team building exercise. He'll be repainted tomorrow before the match."
>>24947208this"THEY DID IT WITHOUT MY APPROVAL AND APPARANTLY FORGOT THAT THIS TANK IS MY FUCKING TANK SHE KEEPS DRAGGING HER FUCKING FEET WHEN IT COMES TO REPAINTING IT AND APPARENTLY ALL THE STORES HEAR HAVE NOT AN IOTA OF GREEN PAINT NOT EVEN THE HOME DEPOT KNOCKOFF AND THEY WONT GET MORE IN FOR A WEEK AND I SWEAR ITS A BLOODY DISGRACE TO SUCH A FINE TANK etc etc
>"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea..."Is there any reason we haven't just sandblasted the crap off ourselves?
>>24947308because shiny metal is even worse camo?
>>24947308Bare metal and sea breezes do not mix well.
>>24947308Unpainted metal exposed to the sea air of a carrier? I don't think that's wise.
>>24947308Because either Anzu fixes it, or we say bye-bye and join up with a school with Murrican tanks.
>>24947197>"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea..."Yeah no. this paint is crap.
>>24947197>other"Blackjack may be this look this way today, but I assure you that tomorrow we won't be the 'blue' ones."
>>24947208We curse at the President. We curse at the circumstances that led us to such a colorful tank. We curse at the teacher who does not teach, at the faux-british who insult our machines, we curse at our enemies who have yet to smite.But mostly, we just curse. Enough that if these girls know a little bit of English, the right parts, their ears catch fire, and the incredible burning causes them to spontaneously run out of the garage and out of our hair. The gold paint flakes, revealing our once-beautiful tank, and then it spontaneously fires a shell we didn't know we loaded up.Good times.
>>24947197>"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea..."Seems to have been an un-autorized recruitment stunt of some sort by our most dearly beloved leader. Its going back to good old OD#7 soon enough
>>24947197>"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea..."And neither was the match.
>>24947341Bitches shouldn't paint a bros tank.
>>24947197>Other."Somethign apparently possessed our stupid prex to paint it so, and if she does not have it fixed by tomorrow morning, I'll be offer Blackjack's services to Saunders"lets see if she'll give us an offer
>>24947323>we say bye-byeGood luck going up against the JGSDF team of lawyers that would jump down our throats at that.
>>24947197>"Never fight dirty you say? Good Lord you are starting to sound like you're more french than british! But yes, the paintjob was NOT my idea either."THIS!
>>24947208Yes. if possible adopt an accent from the deep south while swearing
>Other.Rain, shine, or hailstorm, from Pusan to the gates of Hell, Blackjack can and has survived it all. Whether Blackjack's in his natural color scheme, painted by the student council, or decked out in Red, White, and Blue, he can and will wipe the deck with your tank. Unlike the petty, Blackjack ceaselessly rolls forward upon his treads, crushing his foes underneath, with disregard to trivial matters such as a paint-job. I am ashamed, as I expected a veteran tanker to not judge a tank by its paint scheme.
>>24947377and the legal proceedings would bankrupt Oorai, they can't afford to try a legal case against us
>>24947398But it's not just Oorai, it's also the JGSDF.
>>24947377What are illegal damages to someones personal property?Oorai doesn't have a leg to stand on.
>>24947414does not matter, the point is Oorai could not afford it, so they would not start shit
>>24947382hey now, as someone from the deep south, even i have to admit the New Yorkers (and their ken) can cuss better than we do. it's kinda beneath us to cuss too much.
>>24947377Aside from the cost, I'm tired of being jerked around by the student council. Nobody else reigns them in, nobody does anything, not even the person who recruited us to this mess - who incidentally didn't even give us the warning that we would be part of a start-up.Bring on the lawyers, they don't have a damn case.
So who else wants to jump ship and join an actually competent school once its revealed that Oorai is going bankrupt
>>24947414read>>24947416It still applies.Neither of them own Black Jack, they have hired it and then it was defaced by them (Anzu is their representative).
>>24947439I'm all for it, but I somehow doubt there is enough support, much less would be allowed.
>>24947382Wait, you mean MC isn't already FROM the South?
>>24947439nah>going against the guys with plot armor
>>24947455>much less would be allowed.true, what with everyone aboard the freight train
>>24947438>whole lot of assuming
For fuck's sake, vote to sandblast the tank if it still makes you this buttfrustrated.
>>24947439Hey, whats wrong with fighting with the underdogs. Joining a competent team then going on a curbstomp-athon is no fun. Need that whole adversity thing against us. Makes it fun
>>24947434>giving damnyankees credit for anything
>>24947460Texas, which is really a distinct accent of its own.
>>24947480I think it'll get resolved soon but some people just want straws to grasp in terms of hating Anzu.
>>24947494well there's several southern accents that oothers have a hard time distinguishing between. a memphis accent is different from a georgian accent etc
>>24947502>strawsHardly need them, she hasn't done anything at all to redeem herself from the very beginning, I'm not voting to leave the school (unless Anzu keeps pushing like she has in the past) but having anything to do with her other than tolerate her presence when absolutely necessary? Not going to happen the way she acts.
>>24947502Until Anzu properly apologizes and stops doing stupid things, I don't see how you cannot at least be irritated with her.No straws, she's just that one person who nobody slaps and tells to shape up.
>>24947515And then the weirdness of New Orleans, which can be almost New York-ish.
>>24947416Is Black Jack even registered in our name? Is it really our personal property? Or does it still belong to our grandpa or our dad? Because they could give permission for Black Jack to be painted pink, and there wouldn't be shit we could do about it.
>>24947546I blame the Irish and Eye-talians.
>>24947515are west-virginians southern?not trolling, honestly curious
>>24947208Fucking this. We can only be good southern gentlemen for so long.
>>24947494ah-yap, Texas is world all of it's own.
>>24947486There's a lot of adversity to be had by joining the other schools. Remember, many of them are tough fights, and we would need to eventually face Miho's old school anyway if we're good enough.
GENTLEMEN, IS IT JUST ME OR IS IT FEELING LIKE 1778 ALL OVER AGAIN?
>>24947208begin swearing like a southern sailor assigned to an early submarine
>>24947541I'm irritated but it doesn't spill into full venomous blinding hatred.
>>24947555If it wasn't we wouldn't have been talked to about selling it, which we were, in thread 1.
>>24947563IIRC we're Californians.
>>24947597thats not funny my ancestor died that wayActually he was at pickett's charge.Fuck Lee
>>24947559W Va is a boarder line case, the deeper you are in the mountians, the more southern i would say. the ones closer to the Ohio/Indiana state line, less so.
>begin yelling incoherently in tongues while stripping off clothing
>>24947559They are not, the damn traitors
>>24947590Oh, hatred would be actually slapping her.I'm not prepared to go there, because I'd like to think she's going to eventually shape up - but there's been little actual indication of that.It's annoying as heck.
>>24947647she does not shape up in the anime, and OP is railroading us into sticking to that, so what makes you think she is capable of changing?
>>24947623I really need to go check out my family's history in the Civil War. One of my anscestors served in the Meuss-Argonne Offensive, though.
>>24947559Depends on the part of West Virginia. If they drink sweet tea? Yes. Otherwise no. I've found that tea preferences are best for weeding out the Yankees in ambiguously Southern places like Maryland, WV, or South Florida.
>>24947646>West Virginia splits off from the rest of Virginia, refusing to rebel against their lawfully elected government.>They're the traitors.Sure is good ol' boy goggles in here.
>>24947647from the tone people have been taking, I get the impression they would have done so if they thought they'd get away with it.That and the uproar over this sounds like some Murrican going over to another nation and getting pissed it's not like the USA (example India and how they consider cows sacred as opposed to 'stuff for humburga')
>>24947671>implying it wasn't the Great War of Northern Agression
>>24947655Because for all my frustration, I'd like to think the OP isn't just redoing GuP and wants to actually do something different with the story.If I wanted to hear the GuP story all over again word for word with unchanging characters, I'd watch the anime, so I'm hoping Anzu shapes up.
>>24947689>First shots fired by who? That's right, the south.No matter how much economic pressure was put on the south by the north, the south were the ones who started the war.Nothing in the world has ever said that countries had to play nice with their economies.
>>24947704thats my hopes as well, but so far? I've seen absolutely nothing that even hints of OP being capable of that
>>24947689>Implying you're not just mad we kicked your ass back into Dixie and then let Sherman loose down there for good measure.
>>24947687No. That comparison is stupid. We were perfectly fine until they fucked with our shit. It's more like somebody goes on a trip, and the family he's staying with have a kid. Said kid keys his fucking car, then the parents won't do shit about it.
OP, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?THIS ISN'T THE ELEGANCE I KNOW AND LOVEOPSTAPHPLS
>>24947671And the lawfully elected legislature of the state of Virginia seceded from the US. Then the (presumably) lawfully elected county seats of western Virginia decided to secede from Virginia.
>>24947689>Umad and rewriting history>The South was wrong the whole time>Still pretty fucking shitty
>>24947197>>"Okay, yeah, the paintjobs definately weren't our idea..."
Yet again, the thread gets drowned in discussion far removed from the quest. Only this time it's not about any sort of tanks anymore.Can you guys not push the thread into autosage with shit like this? We're only, what, four, five legit posts in and we're already near autosage.
Can we go back to swearing incoherently? I think that's my favorite choice here.Really, we sound pathetic by complaining about the management, or we sound like we're deflecting the question. We either need swearing, or a better idea for how we say things.
>>24947814Just be glad that we're not near the image-limit yet.Here, have a West Point Cadet Kay to calm yourself down
>>24947814can't help it, OP takes awhile to make a post, so people are just passing time while we wait.
>>24947208this.I want to see if they actually know how to speak english
LOOKS LIKE THEY DIDN'T LEARN THEIR LESSON THE FIRST TIMEBunker Hill this Brit Bitch!
>>24947854I seem to remember us losing the battle of bunker hill
>>24947876and inflicting disproportionate casualties
>>24947861What did you take>Nothing in the world has ever said that countries had to play nice with their economies.for? Me being serious?
>>24947814Slow posting, story issues that linger, little new direction that differs from the anime thus far.You can't expect there NOT to be a lot of people posting for one reason or another.
>>24947830>American Flag >Vertically displayed >IT'S FUCKING BACKWARDS
>>24947886It wasn't so much "destroy a source of income" as "end an exceptionally brutal tradition of slavery that made the kind of profit margins only industrial-grade farming could match."
>>24947905It's cool. Mentioning the Civil War is like tossing grenades and always bound to provoke funny times.
>>24947926If our legal situation was more clearly defined, then it would stop a lot of unnecessary posting.>>24947886>it is very easy to empathize with their reasons.Maybe. But it was an economy that would have seen much of its profits weaken as British India increased cotton production due to increased industrialization of its cotton plantations.
>>24947926We're not even halfway through the main story yet.If we get there and no worthwhile changes were seen, then I'd cry foul.
"Y'know, painting Black Jack baby blue certainly wasn't my idea." You say, getting a bit heated. "But it was a nice gesture, if a bit misguided. And quite frankly I'm a little bit offended by your rude and superior tone..." You notice Darjeeling looking over your shoulder when you hear her."Darjeeling! Welcome to Oorai!" Anzu calls out cheerfully. "Come to get a look at the competition before tomorrow?" She walks up and happily shakes Darjeeling's hand. "I see you've met one of the aces we brought in. We had a practice match yesterday and he destroyed four of the five other tanks.""It was all with the help of my crew." You say with a slight nod to Rose.Orange Pekoe looks at you. "He certainly has spirit."Darjeeling smiles. "Unfortunately you won't have a ghost of a chance tomorrow.">"We'll see if Black Jack's 90mm agrees with that prediction tomorrow.">"Anzu, when you're done I'd like to have a word with you.">We need to talk to someone.
>>24947996Oh absolutely. Frankly, nonviolent resolution of slavery due to economic pressures would have been best in the long run.
>>24947996>If our legal situation was more clearly defined, then it would stop a lot of unnecessary posting.you know what would help stop the arguments?If OP actually defined and laid out what our contract stated, hell I'm still pissed we couldnt see what the contract was before we said "FUCK YEA JAPAN HERE WE COME"
>We need to talk to someone.I'd talk to Anzu, but then again I have that sinking feeling we're only going to get frustration out of her.If we can find Miho, we'll want to inform her of this.
>>24948012We're going to destroy this bitch.
>>24948012>OtherDon't say a fucking thingJust give a cheeky laugh and walk away.Then we need to go find Anzu and GET HER TO REPAINT OUR FUCKING TANK
>>24948012>"Anzu, when you're done I'd like to have a word with you."we are stopping her shit once and for all
>>24948012>We need to talk to Miho to engage on some planning.
>"Anzu, when you're done I'd like to have a word with you."The biggest deciding factor in the match wouldn't be firepower but tacticis as IIRC, Oorai's forces really had none.
>>24948032THISonce the snoddy bitch has left then we ream Anzu
>>24948012>Anzu, when you're done...Exit Brits. We've sparred with words, let's get to getting something done and looking like we're busy. They can play with the Prez, and afterwords we'll have another bitchfit I'll guess.
>>24948012>Find Miho. Make Plan.Actions speak louder than workds
>>24947886there was another element that got the south teed off. the north had a vastly higher population. in turn, they had a MUCH weighted represtation in the House and Senate. The North could AND DID ram bills down the south's thought and wrote the budget in their favor. it didn't help that president Buchanan udderly worthless and only let the resentment grow.
>>24948012>We need to talk to someone."Ladies, good day."We need to find Miho and the other tank commanders and get some fucking planning done now. We can't wait until tonight, since the match is tomorrow.
>>24948012and somehow there is not a single bit of rage or swearing. how am I not suprised
>>24948012Alright, we will make her eat her words, but let's play her game. Smile cheerfully, even if it's clear we don't mean it."You know what they say about counting your chickens. Anzu, when you're done I'd like to have a word with you."
>>24948013True, that wasn't the North's fault though, the south left the union on the belief that lincoln would punish slavery because he was from the slave free north.Before Gettysburg slavery hadn't ever been on the plate except in the minds of the south.And at that point, the economy was scrubbed anyways, so might as well, right?
>>24948012>We need to talk to someone.Talking to Anzu is just asking for disappointment. She'll get what's coming to her. For now we need to find Miho. Make some stratergizing.
>>24948012>"Anzu, when you're done I'd like to have a word with you."Good for you.
>>24948032>Then we need to go find AnzuAnzu is right fucking there. So you're saying to go away, and come back when Darjeeling has gone away?
>>24948070because OP never acknowledges >other options
>>24948012"We'll see if my long hard tube here agrees with that prediction tomorrow. I just accidentally made a horrible innuendo in front of a young lady, didn't I? Fucking pun-happy language"
>>24948012[x] "Anzu, when you're done I'd like to have a word with you."ANZUANZU WHY DO YOU DESIRE OUR HATE?
>>24948012>We need to talk to someoneI say we talk with the commanders of each tank and give them the up and up of whats coming tomorrow
>>24948012...not even an acknowledgement toward the most voted for optionfuck you too
>>24948012>We need to talk to someone.Find Miho.
>>24948079sounds pretty passive aggressive. What are you a woman?
>>24948012>"Anzu, when you're done I'd like to have a word with you."Remember repainting the tank and I want to see their faces when we knock several of them out from range.
>Anzu's face over the past couple of days>And right nowI swear, if this bitch don't fix our camo, I'm done.
Chugga chugga choo choo.
>>24948116I take it you're the one who keeps on wanting MC guy to swear like an idiot?
>>24948012>We need to talk to Miho to engage on some planning.Win first, then rage about paint if it's not fixed.
>>24948117i swear, if any of the other tanks in our team fire a shot before us, im voting we put our first shell into them, this upcoming battle would be fucking piss easy if they let us handle the range and use the rest as bait
>>24948012"Anzu, I'm sorry, but Black Jack won't be able to participate in the match tomorrow, you see, he has the blues. and the only cure for a sad tank is a brand new paint job in proper military colors. It gives them that proper esprit de corps like nothing else can."
>>24948109>most voted forincoherent swearing and "not our idea" both had 9 votes, as linked to the posts.so no acknowledgement of the tied votes
>>24948135no fuck that, she said it would be done, if we cannot rely on her word thats it, shes done for
>>24948128Nope, I'm a guy who's sick of tired of all the raging about the paint job and on top of that instead of actually directly dealing with it when they have the chance, they take the high heel route of being passive aggressive.
>>24948117Expect that Darjeeling will have a plan to deal with us, it's why she paid so much attention to our tank. She's insufferably arrogant, but not stupid.I'm more or less convinced we are going to almost, but not quite win based on how the story has been going thus far.
>>24948146thats one thing I hate most about this quest, OP is actively making it worse by not even attempting to deal with the issues and letting us move on
>>24948146I'm not even mad about the paint job. I'm surprised that /tg/ went so ballistic over it.
>>24947977Isn't that cute...BUT IT'S WRONG! The Emancipation Proclimation wasn't until several years into the war, and only affected the rebelling states. Slavery was still legal in the north, even after the war. Lincoln is on record saying he wouldn't have touched slavery if he could have brought the south back in.
>>24948146What chance? There's been so much CHOO CHOO that literally the only thing that's been allowed is bitching at Anzu about it.
>>24948160>but not quite win based on how the story has been going thus far.oh of course, here was me thinking we can actually have an impact on things, but nope, we're going to get railroaded into losing, again
>>24948168how could you be surprised by it, its fucking /tg/, what did you expect?
>>24948012>We need to talk to someone.Talk to Miho. We need to update pour planning session to be about tomorrow's roflstomp, not training.Shheeeeeit.
>>24948075IMO, the Civil War was always about slavery. The North couldn't take the economic hit, and the South thought they were going to take an economic sucker punch (or would later as free demographic were going to crush them in the House and they could tie at best in the Senate). Over these reasons, I think a layer of feel-good has been placed on both sides.
>>24948146I'm not sure where we would get the means to "deal with it" in the first place. We don't have the means to order paint, we've not had a chance to even try to change the paint job, how are we supposed to deal with it? We just had our practice match, then got story-forwarded to this.Your comments make no sense.
>>24948139Fuck yea this. Maybe not in front of the competition, but fuck it maybe that'll make her HAVE to finally do it. This could give a bit of a psychological edge, as well; If we show dissent now, tomorrow, when we're working together and in tandem, it could take them by surprise. They're pretty smug, let's let them eat that look on their faces.
>>24948204Not him, but sandblasting.
>>24948012>We need to talk to Miho and the others to engage on some planning.
>>24948168I think it's a sign of a bigger issue, mainly they didn't get what they were expecting (Something closer to WoT I can imagine)>>24948204instead of trying to vote for a choice that checks with her, you prefer to go the passive agressive route and shit up practically EVERY OTHER CHOICE.Then again there's a certain fallacy in assuming /tg/ posters actually have a y chromosome.
>>24948213>sandblasting.We've already gone over why that's an even more stupid idea than the blue paintjob.Blue makes Black Jack look silly, but sandblasting the paint off and leaving bare metal would corrode Black Jack like nothing else in this environment; or have you forgotten that we're actually at sea?
>>24948179The one thing this has been good for is helping me learn more about what to do (and what not to do) for a quest I'm wanting to run eventually.
>>24948226>mainly they didn't get what they were expectingNo, MAINLY, every choice upon seeing it was "get pissed off". There was NO other choice here. The character was FORCED to be mad about it, and rather than play a fucking schizo, we're following through.
>>24948241if you stay away from everything this quest has done, you will succeed
>>24948226I think you are confusing me with one of the other posters, but ok. Your comments still make no sense.
We Meta as Fuck now
>>24948241I hope you're not taking the words here too seriously though it helps to be more flexible and avoid having things come off as railroading.>>24948252he was mad, you're being "painting the tank with her blood" RAEGING MAD.
>>24948213As another poster mentioned, sandblasting = bad idea, especially at sea. Without a paint to immediately put on, that's asking for trouble.
>>24948271it helps to avoid railroading entirely, something OP is incapable of
>>24948271>you're being "painting the tank with her blood" RAEGING MAD.One: THAT WAS ONE GUY YOU FUCKING DUMBASS!Two: HE WAS FUCKING JOKING!But please, continue to put words in my mouth. Clearly YOU'RE the ever so advanced one here.
>>24948294you're assuming things from your limited perspective, hence my advice to avoid things looking that way so people like you wouldn't assume.>>24948299>Using ALL CAPITALS>Not raeging mad.pick one.
>>24948299>HE WAS FUCKING JOKING!Not a joke, but to see if he could get enough people to go along with it to actually pull it off.>>24947109>it was mainly to see if i could give people enough of a murderboner to go through with it
>>24948311>Not raeging mad.Never said I wasn't mad at your bullshit, cockslime.
We're not even halfway through the story yet. If nothing changes after we get there, fine. I'll still be here in the long run, but I will freely admit that this story is Railroads Unlimited when it happens.
>>24948323Not the poster with the capitals, but I'm pretty certain the murderboner comment was also a joke.
>>24948323it would have been a joke if people went through with it>>24948338that part was not, the original idea and intention was however
>>24948267damn strait!>>24948202Yes Slavery was a major reason the war happened, but there was also a score of other reasons as well. in the end ALL of them drove the southern states to break away. It could have been stopped before the shooting started, but the political leadership just wasn't there.
>>24948354>it would have been a joke if people went through with itBut if people went through with it and MC actually killed Anzu, how is that a joke?
>>24948355>but the political leadership just wasn't there.When is it really?
>I start thinking there's absolutely no way that a Churchill and Four Matildas could defeat us>mfw I realize OP is just going to change up the Brit line-upWe're gonna have to face a Centurion, aren't we?
>>24948378Or a Tortoise.Well, probably not. But a man can dream, yeah?
>>24948374it would have been hilarious, to make people believe it was a good idea, and to convince OP to go with it
>>24948378Considering how much OP hates us winning, yeah.
>>24948271The flexibility aspect, as well as giving choices that matter seem to be two of the more important things I'm learning. It also helps to communicate/address issues (perceived or otherwise).Not taking everything here as gold, but it's been interesting to see.
>>24948378>Centurionan early prototype or a early production run Mk1 (the only ones they could legally field), we can take them from any angle.but OP wouldn't change them because that would mean it would not be following the anime to the letter, and we can't have that, no sir
>>24948378Look at it this way: what are the chances Darjeeling's gonna have a Tortoise, Black Prince, or a TOG II?
>>24948388So, that means that it was a serious suggestion, because you wanted people to go with it. Joke or no, you wanted people to run with it. So then it wasn't a joke suggestion, to be dismissed out of hand, but one you wanted to have happen.
>>24948408also, notify the audience when you cut off votes and which ones win, that stops a lot of arguing and derailment
>>24948378Time to get rekt anon.You could have stopped this, why didn't you?>>24948389>>24948418Hey you. Yeah You. Passive-Aggressive whiner. Yes you. You can just hide the thread. Now shhhh.
>>24948421tortoise we can outmaneuver, black prince would break down ion the way to the fight and the TOG was a piece of shit, 17lbr or no
>>24948355And what a shame it was. Perhaps the bloodiest conflict in American history.>having a somewhat intelligent discussion about the Civil War>on 4chan>feels good
>>24948378Funny you mention that.I've had my concerns about that too, from the moment Darjeeling showed up. We don't have the greatest lineup ourselves, but......yeah, either the lineup will change, or it's going to be the Miho Maneuver (that's what I'm calling what she did earlier), but done by Darjeeling.Crap.
>>24948408such things are in execution as there's an infamous event in another quest that people are still sour over and had it been executed differently, they would be accusing the writer of railroading that event to happen regardless.The only person that knows for sure if a writer is railroading or not is the writer himself. A good one can cover up actual railroading while a so-so one gets unfarily accused of it.

>>24948430This is very important.It takes time to write up a story post, so you need to tell players when voting has stopped, otherwise they'll keep voting, and a different choice may get support. If you post "Voting Closed!" and THEN someone posts something that gets a lot of support, then the players won't feel frustrated when what they ended up wanting, rather than what they wanted at the time of voting, doesn't happen.

>>24948501It doesn't have to be an actual post saying that voting is over.Some have a 'first to three' or similar system, while others have a fast enough OP and slow enough thread that they don't need any kind of cutoff.
You need to get out of here, but you can't just leave in a huff. You can't let the Gloriana girls get under your skin. That's what you were trying to do when you were talking up Black Jack, and it's what they've managed to do right back to you.Tricky girls."Anzu, I'm sure you and Darjeeling have a lot to talk about, so I'll take my leave." You say with a friendly smile and a curt bow. "And, when you get a chance, I'd like to have a word with you about a few topics."Anzu smiles warmly at you. "Of course, Commander. I'll come find you."With that you turn and walk off.>Go home, cool down a bit.>Find Miho. She needs to know about this.>We need some

>>24948584Well, it's mainly to make it a bit easier to write- by giving distinct choices like that I can get a fair idea of what I might be writing ahead of time. Of course I also look at individual posts and when I see something good I'll try to work it in.It also serves to kind of focus the voters a bit- it's a lot easier to tally up 2-4 specific choices than 5-10 "What do?" choices.
>>24948548>we need someWe need some what? Food? Booze? Pussy? Hoppes #9 gun oil?
>>24948626>Hoppes #9 gun oil?Exactly. Had to leave the deer rifle back home because loljapan, but we can still rub Hoppes all over our hands to get that "just cleaned muh gun" smell.
>>24948548Also:>We need someone who knows their shit about what tanks Gloriana has. Find Yukari.No clue why it got cut off.
>>24948548>>We need someFind Yukari, GET SOME
>>24948648...kinda too late for that. I still stick to my Miho choice. If nothing else, she'll probably call on Yukari herself to get some info.
>We need someMan I sure wish I had some right now.
>>24948625But that's exactly what we mean by railroading. Only 3 possible choices, no Other that allows for something completely unexpected.You may as well write a VN and be done with it if you're going to lock away the possibility of a course of action you haven't foreseen.
>Find Miho. She needs to know about this.Also, note that we have 6 tanks instead of five as in the anime, so logically the British line up is going to change.
>>24948648switching away from miho to yukari thenAnd May I please reccommend telling us when you start writing the next story post? might alleviate us bitching at you

>>24948625Not to disagree, but with the relatively short bits we get, the value of distinct choices seems to really go out the window. I'd agree if the posts were more meaty - in that case, considering the amount of story/plot that must be advanced, clear choices could make it a lot easier to write.

>>24948548>>Find Miho. She needs to know about this.
Okay, we need to get the Anglerfish Team's (And the other team's Kaptain's) cell numbers.Because being able to send of emergency SHTF messages like this would be useful.
>>24948687We should fear side hits from the 6 pdr, IMO.
>>24948675that's not railroading. Railroading is having something happen no matter the choice. That and it'd take a very talented writer to pull off a pure freeform quest.This at least shows he has some sort of plan unlike the much loved SWQ.>>24948711Miho's the one with the most tanking experience/tactical knowledge.
>>24948708not really we can still pen it at all angles like it aint no thing.

>inb4 comet that starts wrecking our shit from 2 clicks out
>>24948548Find Miho. Find Yukari.
>>24948744EMERGENCY CALL CHAIN
>>24948714So planning is railroading? If he were to do things truly freeform, the amount of posts would be even less due to the needed time to write them.Damn talk about toxic fans.
>>24948694Didn't we already have a date scheduled with Miho after class? Why not talk with her about it then?
>>24948714And now it comes to this. The OP said something that will be completely be taken out of context. This exact quote will be posted in the QTG, and many anons, who don't know the other half of the story, will smear Blackjack because of this very quote.
>>24948754We should appoint a Stan/Eval Officer.
>>24948755comet didn't have a fire control system reliable enough to do that
>>24948728>Miho's the one with the most practical tanking experienceWhich is why it's so perfect. She's totally unnecessary here, so we'll have the meeting without her.Step one in our passive aggressive campaign, since we can't seem to penetrate her thick skull by talking to her.
>>24948755We've been over this. 2,000m hits are only peripherally viable with WW2-grade optics and stabilisation. Hell, Otto Carius repeatedly said engagement outside of ~1200m was a waste of ammo.
>>24948776Because we need as much time as possible to plan, Anzu has really messed up by not giving ANY warning to the tank commanders.Just another reason why we should be allowed to put Anzu over our knee and spank her in public.
>>24948678>>24948714You guys are only doing this because you hate quests. Especially the popular ones right? I've seen this pattern countless times before. I'm calling you guys out.
>>24948775Not really. Infantry dude writes about as quickly as Blackjack. I even bet he's following the thread, judging by some of the posts.
>>24948778Naturally. Did you expect quest readers to be rational people? God we can't have rational people here.I wonder if Blackjack'd be getting this much shit if he did a "The Black Jack wins forever with MAN POWER!" type quest.
>>24948807pic relatedbut the other way around
>>24948776Well we're going to inform her of this shit at least. She can use classtime to think up ideas in advance, then we hash them out together at the meeting.
>>24948823>24948678Sorry, wrong anon. >>24948675I meant this anon. My bad to >>24948678
>>24948779Momo is basically the XO, right?
>>24948779A what now?
>>24948844She's the 2nd in command at the school council, not sure whose the team's 2nd in command is. Odds are in this story it'd be the MC.
>>24948845Standardization and Evaluation Officer. Basically Sodoko.
>>24948845I think he meant Staff officer.>>24948844Theoretically, yes, but she clearly only answers to Anzu. Which makes her useless to us. We need someone who answers to either us or Miho to actually get shit done.
>>24948728If you define the term railroading as having all actions lead to only one outcome, rather than forcing players to choose only those options offered by the OP and no other. The former is more precise, but /tg/ tends to use the latter definition.Alright, I'll call it "closing off player creativity", then. 3 OP-determined choices and one Other allows for focusing the players while still allowing for player creativity. Not having an other choice means that the OP cannot respond to scenarios that they have not already mapped out, something which /tg/ has argued is one of the most glaring faults of a GM in its many DM/GM Advice threads.BlackJack doesn't have to go full freeform, but there should still be the opportunity for players to exercise their creativity.
>>24948905even though /tg/ is not known for GOOD decision making? Honestly I wouldn't have those three choices be rigid but rather flexable to an extent. That and vetoing obviously bad decisionsThough we must consider he's a first time quest runner, not a seasoned vet. Though I must admit I could never do something like this as getting to gether 5+ updates in a single day is about impossible for me.
>>24948963>even though /tg/ is not known for GOOD decision making? SW series of quest does not represent all of /tg/. There are many quest where /tg/ doesn't have its head up its collective ass.
>>24948905> Of course I also look at individual posts and when I see something good I'll try to work it in.Well, it's not like he's ignoring creativity.
>>24949003>I'll try to work it in.All I get from that is that he will allow cosmetic changes, but no fundamental change to the decision. Being able to make a fundamentally different decision, such as "Call up grandpa and pick his brains on actual team vs team combat, as he experienced it in wartime" is what I am concerned about.
>>24948992perhaps not but this is in a similar line as it's not a pure /tg/ quest or a pure /m/ quest, but rather a /ak/ + other stuff. One could say this is directly descended from SWQ.
>>24949052>Call grandpa and pick his brain.Actually not a bad idea. Is it too late to vote for this?
>>24948963Since when have roleplayers in general been sources of good decisions?Bad decisions make interesting quests happen. Getting angry at Anzu is interesting, just putting up with her shit like what happens in the Anime isn't very /tg/ at all.Occasionally, we will lose - As happened - and we'll bitch about it. Because that's what happens when you lose, you bitch about it then move on. The difference between railroading and having flexible decisions depends on bridging the gap between interesting and bad and butthurt. Blackjack's doing just fine. It's obvious he loves the source material, all of it - The anime AND the military bend we try and take with it. Plus, we get all riled up because we care about the quest and what happens in it, which meant to me that he's doing a good job.Personally, I'd like to see a slightly more pro-active bend in our actions. A lot of the descriptions paint us as more passive and accepting of the crazy circumstances we end up in thanks to the Prez, but without her there'd be no conflict at all. Still. She's gonna get slapped eventually, probably when we find out what she's done with Miho (Forcing her into the club, If I recall the Anime correctly). Messing with our tank is one thing, messing with our comrades is another; Until that day, I wait in excitement.
>>24949052That is a good question as the time's looking ripe for him to pop up. I hope BlackJack didn't forget him.
>>24949052Actually....Next vote, this option!
>>24949055So instead of giving the players a chance you will use past quest that don't have connection to this beyond the fact it may have a loosely same player base?
>>24949062That's a surprisingly good idea. that should happen.Now, happening before or after getting ahold of the other tank commanders, and warning them about what's up? That's the question.
>>24949102I'd say get them together first, let Miho start hashing out a plan while we try to track him down.We don't know how quickly we can get ahold of him, and being the most experienced tank commander aside from Miho, we need the least amount of planning. Besides, Miho is the one better at team tactics planning, so we wouldn't be as useful in that regard. We'd be more useful trying to get ahold of the one man on this carrier that actually fought and killed alongside fellow tankers and infantry against opposing tankers and infantry.
>>24949079>interesting>goodI saw many many interesting choices taken, most of them affected the respective stories adversely.>>24949088I speak with the knowledge a chunk of the SWQ fanbase is reading this.Letting /tg/ run amok on a newbie's story is just asking for disaster.
>>24949079We already know about her forcing Miho in, we were there.I'm mostly looking forward to the Saunders match. Shit's gonna be so FREEDOM.
Yeah. Miho needs to know about this- looks like whatever training plan that was going to be discussed just got put on hold. She said she'd be over with the Freshmen girls, helping them acquaint themselves with their tank, so you jog over towards it."Miho!" You call out as you get to the Cadillac-pink Lee. "Hey! We got a problem!" The 37mm turret's hatch pops open and Miho's head pops out."What's the matter?" She says earnestly."Our venerated La Presidente just put us up for a show match against some Tea-school." You say, already getting mad about it again."St. Gloriana. Their team specializes in British tanks." She hauls herself out of the tiny hatch like a pro. "I tried to talk her out of it, but she said she wanted the team to get a taste of what we'd be going up against." You help her down off the tank."So what the hell are we going to do?" You say, exasperated...>"My crew's ready, and your's is probably not far from it, but the rest of the team...">"We need a plan and we need it very soon- these girls are not going to survive on their skills alone.">Other
>>24949102>>24949062YES! this! we have not seen anything of his sense we got on board. just where is he, and what is he up too? [s]besides boning every chick he can score on[/s]
>>24949151>>"My crew's ready, and your's is probably not far from it, but the rest of the team..."we need a plan that takes this into account, no use having brilliant strategy and tactics and the bricks driving the other tanks get themselves tracked
>>24949151>"My crew's ready, and your's is probably not far from it, but the rest of the team...">"We need a plan and we need it very soon- these girls are not going to survive on their skills alone."
>>24949151>We need a plan and we need it very soon - these girls are not going to survive on their wits alone.FTFY. Also, votin' for this.
>>24949151>"We need a plan and we need it very soon- these girls are not going to survive on their skills alone."Right now only Anglerfish Team and Pershing Team have any chance. Also do we have a theme name for our team?
>>24949151>OTHER"We need to get a plan together, and maybe my gramps can help with it. He fought in the war, he might know what to do with green tank crews when facing more experienced tankers."I'll try to get him to come around, you get the other tank commanders together to come up with a plan."
>>24949151>OtherGet Yukari on the line, have a strategy meeting with miho and hack out a plan
>"We need a plan and we need it very soon- these girls are not going to survive on their skills alone.">"I'm going to try to find my grandfather after this and see if he can help."Plans are very important as it's what ultimately enabled the tea-timers to win.

>>24949151>Find Grandpa.>Receive tutelage.

Personally brief each of the tank commanders. Get Yukari to infodump every tank the poms could possibly use for us.Call Grandpa, open with the line "Gramps, The British are coming, the British are coming!"
>>24949151>"We need a plan and we need it very soon- these girls are not going to survive on their skills alone."AND>time to call in Gramps and see what he can do to help all of us.

>>24949184I still say Team Eagle. Or Team Turkey.
>>24949052>Being able to make a fundamentally different decision, such as "Call up grandpa and pick his brains on actual team vs team combat, as he experienced it in wartime" is what I am concerned about.People will vote for it if it's asked. >>24949062>>24949082Why didn't you said so earlier so that this would of been the majority much, much sooner. As I see it, the reason why the...1) Decision2) Decision3) Decision4) Open/Other...is a standard for most quest is due to the fact of pacing and direction. As Blackjack had said earlier, if he took account to every idea being made, we would get stuck figuring which idea would be the best one. Furthermore, there would be a lack of direction if a decision would be presented as a "this happened, what do you do?"
>>24949186>>24949187combine, get both gramps and Yukari
>>24949213>I'll go see if we can get some professional help"No way *that* could be misconstrued.

>>24949221thing is, he doesn't ever seem to acknowledge >other as a legitimate choice, and he never includes it in the decision making posts. if he just did that I would be happy
>>24949184>do we have a theme name for our team?Either Eagle or Giant.Eagle for obvious reasons, Giant because of the famous quotation by Isoroku Yamamoto which there is no record of him having ever actually said.

>>24949417>stop feeding the trolls?They're going to start bullshit down the line with just that one quote. Just stating the facts first before I'm being called his defense force or being a part of his circle jerk or what have you. I'll go back to lurking and drinking my beer in peace.
>>24949425No, I'm enjoying it. I run another quest and agree with his statement. He just shouldn't have said it.
>>24949452I personally applaud your actions. That and "not feeding trolls" sounds more like "take it like a bitch"That and Appeasement is a fundamentally flawed tactic.
"Alright, we can head to my place." You say, after some thought. But it takes a lot more thought and, actually, quite a bit of desperation to bring up the next bit. "My grandfather was a tanker in Korea, maybe he'll have some ideas on what do with the greener crews."Miho nods. "I'll get Yukari as well- she might not know a lot about tanking yet, but she knows a lot about tanks." Not a bad idea, actually."Sounds like a plan." You say nodding. Between the four of you there had to be something that'd help your team not look like complete amateurs come tomorrow morning. "Can you get Saori to get in contact with all the other commanders? We're going to need another briefing tonight so they know what the plan is. I hope.""Will do." Miho agrees.>"Can you talk to Anzu as well, get us a map of the battlezone?">Talk to Anzu and get a map of the battlezone.>Other.
>>24949452>Just stating the facts firstIf you're going to bring facts into this, OP only started taking Other as a choice middle of last thread. Until then, it was always two or three pre-determined options.
>"Can you talk to Anzu as well, get us a map of the battlezone?"I get the feeling if the MC did it himself, he'd fail in the task due to raeging over the paint job.
>>24949565>>"Can you talk to Anzu as well, get us a map of the battlezone?">thisfor the same reason
>>24949542>Talk to Anzu and get a map of the battlezone.Best do it ourselves so that Anzu doesn't doormat Miho into doing something dumb again, line letting Anzu in on the planning meeting or some shit.
>>24949542>Other.Go to Chouno, get a map of the battlezone. As the team coach, she should have access to that information.
>>24949542>Talk to Anzu and get a map of the battlezone.and kindly remind her of her promise to do with blackjacks paintjob
>Talk to Anzu and get a map of the battlezone.Might as well. We did say we'd have a few words with her. Do this after we get foxy grandpa.
>>24949565>>24949587You'd think with the abrupt practice match, MC guy would focus on the task at hand.
>>24949542>>"Can you talk to Anzu as well, get us a map of the battlezone?"I don't trust ourselves enough not to strangle her as soon as she comes into view.
>>24949637Not if BlackJack writes him like certain anon's been reacting, i.e. flying right off the handle when Anzu or the paint job is faintly mentioned.
>>24949542>>"Can you talk to Anzu as well, get us a map of the battlezone?"
>>24949660I'm still surprised /tg/ flew off the handle like that. I know the quest-players have a bit of a bad rep with regards to overly emotional outbursts, but still...
>>24949589Either this, or we go ourselves - Don't want >>24949588 to happen, yet we'll probably end up raging at her if we talk right now.
>>24949680An anon admitted that he was samefagging at times to get a rise out of the rest of us, but really, it's got less to do with a paintjob and more that /tg/ doesn't like Anzu. Nerds don't like a precocious bully, after all.
>>24949682that's assuming Miho's still such a doormat. That and between Chono and Miho, I'd sooner count on Miho to get shit done.
>>24949542>Talk to Anzu and get a map of the battlezone.We must take control so Anzu doesn't do something stupid again.
>>24949703more like the're taking MC's emotions and turning them up to 11.
Am I the only one who didn't hate Anzu in the anime?
>>24949703>samefaggingabout painting the tank with anzu's blood? i didnt samefag that, it was surprising the amount of support it got though
>>24949745I didn't either.Though I wasn't fond of Momo and her being...well, useless. And loud. Overbearing, too. It's a bad combination.
>>24949745not in anime, she had legitimate reasons for her actions, but shes just being a bitch here
>>24949719Actually, if you think about it, as both a school coach and a JGSDF officer, Chouno should be able to have access to more information, such as the exact lineup of Darjeeling's forces and the selected battlezone.
>>24949786yea but she is useless, another bitch we need to confront
>>24949745Actually, I didn't. At least not after the 5th episode or so. Honestly I see her as someone who is willing to use any means to save her school, and is quite willing to manipulate those around her for the greater good. Despite her occasionally bad decision-making skills, she does have the school's best interests at heart.
>>24949745She's a bit annoying but I'm not out to hate her for existing. Unlike >>24949769 , I'm maintaining that she meant well (but fucked up) until I got proof of otherwise.>>24949786That would imply that she'd hand them out instead of dismissing it.
>>24949795Good intentions or not, she's still a cunt.
>>24949814Considering this is /tg/ that's hypocritical and shitty social skills are something of a norm here. In a certain manner of speaking Anzu might be a good fit here (smart, shit for social skills, personality flaws)
>>24949857you forget that /tg/ Gets Shit Done, something Anzu seems incapable of
>>24949857Lack of social skills is not an excuse for being a tyrannical, manipulative bitch.It is just another tick on the long list of character flaws.
>>24949866Again you assume things, though "trying to get stuff done and fucking up" seems to be a /tg/ trait.>>24949878Nor is it an excuse to be a hateful asshole, something you should keep in mind.
>>24949886>"trying to get stuff done and fucking up"Ah, something we share with Anzu
>>24949795My entire problem with her was how far she was willing to go. She was perfectly willing to fuck up all of Miho's plans and dreams to further her own ends, in the name of a good cause - A cause which she then turned around to use as emotional leverage.Yeah, her actions caused all of the good things that came out of the tank battles to happen, but that's entirely because of the genre we're looking at; If we were to transplant the story to an American cartoon, she turns from the sympathetic instigator to the actual villain. I just don't like people's emotional baggage being used against them, and Anzu was a master at that kind of emotional blackmail.
>>24949886I don't need an excuse to be a hateful arsehole. I rather enjoy it.
>>24949894It's the Japanese (and Asian in general) mindset - shutting up, abandoning your personal dreams and mindlessly following orders from a higher authority is a virtue there. Somehow.
"Alright, I'm gonna go give my grandpa a call." You say, fishing in your pocket for you phone. You remember something important. "Oh, go see if you can get a map of where the game will be held from Anzu." If you try, you might actually end up strangling her this time.Miho nods and hurries off while you dial the apartment your grandfather and you had moved into. It wasn't actually that far from the school, which was nice, but it was a lot smaller than you were used to.Grandpa answers the phone after several rings. "What is it, boy?" He says cheerfully. "You ready for chili tonight?" "Yep!" You say. Perverted old man though he was, his ability to cook was one of his finer points. "Hey, I'm bringing a couple of guests home with me-""You finally get yourself a girlfriend!" He cheers. "Ha! I told that summabitch O'Leary you weren't a fairy! That old fart owes me fifty dollars!" You roll your eyes and rub the bridge of your nose.>"She's not my girlfriend.">"The British are coming!">"Just... make sure you have pants on when we get there."
>>24949917MC needs to teach people how to 'murica.
>"The British are coming!"I like where this is going.
>>24949942>>"The British are coming!"this. so much this.
>>24949942>>"The British are coming!"
>>24949894I'm not saying she's a saint, just that she's being demonized beyond her usual level (to perhaps having stories made up such as "nero fiddling while rome burned")It's hard exactly get pissed at her certain people are making her out to be a far bigger villain than she actually is.>"The British are coming!">"and make sure you have pants on when we get there.">>24949944what being an ignorant jackass?
>>24949942>OTHER"It's the tank commanders of the school tank team, and they need help getting ready for a match tomorrow. They JUST drove their tanks for the first time yesterday, so I'd like more help than leering. You can ogle them after, help them drive tanks first."
>>24949942>>"The British are coming!">>"Just... make sure you have pants on when we get there."
>>24949942>"The British are coming!">"Just... make sure you have pants on when we get there."
>>24949942>"The British are coming!">"Just... make sure you have pants on when we get there."We should probably tell Gramps that we have a bunch of girls coming. And maybe hint at our want of Miho x Yukari threesome.
>>24949942The british!AAAAAAAAAAARRRRREEEEEEComing!OK, that's a lie.The British!Are!Here!
>>24949942The old man made a bet we were gay?Also:>She's not my girlfriend.One snarky remark deserves another.
>>24949942no other?>Other"The girls are fellow tank commanders from the schools team, and if you are not wearing pants, or so much as think lewd thoughts at them, I will crush you beneath blackjacks tracks"
BlackJack, if we're gonna keep going, ya might wanna start another thread. The thread's pretty much circling the drain at this point.
>>24950092Page 7, still got about another post maybe two at this rate anyways.
>>24949942>"The British are coming!"Not with us perhaps, but because of us nonetheless.
>>24949942>"The British are coming!""And my tank is still blue!"
>"Just... make sure you have pants on when we get there."So funny story. I went on trip to Japan like a decade back, including a weekend long homestay.First night there, husband comes home from work, promptly takes off his pants, pours me a glass of whiskey, and asks if I liked American girls or Asian girls.He then lit up a cigarette and we bet on horse races for like 2 hours.
>>24949942>Gramps, I'm not gay, I'm tanksexual.
>>24949942>"The British are coming!"What's with all these negative waves?
>>24945460 >>24945724 >>24945806 hereI went and watched a few episodes of this. Why am I enjoying it so much? Why am I waifuing Yukari and her floofy hair?
