Although you had extra blankets and pillows for everyones, only Lisa consented to sleeping on the floor. The rest of your staff, including Kitten, opted to use you as security after Nancy’s story which was so terrifying that even she scared herself telling it. You shake your head at that. You crawl over the sleeping Ramirez and Nancy and head for the shower.You reflect on Homecoming last night. It was fun definitely, you got to dance, eat, meet Eugene again. All that good stuff. You may have even caught the eye of one of their best men. You exit the shower rejuvenated and fresh and then get dressed out in one of your school uniforms. Once you exit the shower, you see Nancy has arisen and apparently started on making breakfast.She smiles when she greets you. “Morning, President. Sleep well?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>28859703>> BoastBesides having nightmares of Cupid charging at me, I'm fine.
>>28859703> PolitePretty well!
>>28859703>> BoastAlways boast, we are the wellspring of optimism from her on out.
> Boast“Slept like a corpse, Nancy!” You don’t want to admit that you woke up in the middle of the night sweating in fear of surprise Shermans. You sniff the air, “What are you making for breakfast?”“Oh, nothing special, just pancakes,” she says as she fires up the oven. “Go ahead and relax. I’ll just be here cooking.”You sit down on your bed, yawning a bit, then you pull out your laptop. You decide to browse the internet a little. Lisa then rises from her slumber, yawning loudly. “Oh man… morning, girls.”You nod. “Bright and early to you, Lisa. Sleep well?”Lisa shrugs. “Eh, it was good.” She stands up and stretches, scratching her hair. “Mind if I use your shower?”“Go ahead.”With that, Lisa heads in.

> Read Book (My Tank is Fight!)You pull out your book and decide on reading some more. You read more fictionalized accounts of encountering some superweapon of German design, and yet it doesn’t really get old that fast. You still chuckle at it.> “My Tank is Fight!” Progress: 50%Lisa pops out of the shower, sighing in relief. “Boss, I gotta say, I love your shower. It’s one of the few showers I’ve been in that’s always consistently warm!” She looks down at your book. “Ah, still reading that?”You nod. “Yep. Captain Dubois gave it to me, suggested I start studying more Tankery stuff on the side.”Lisa nods. “Don’t blame her, because admitted you do have a lot of stuff to learn. Tell you what though, maybe later we can go to the bookstore, pick up some more books or something.”“That’d be great, Lisa.” You bookmark your page then put the book down.

Things to do for today:>Direct the play>Read the book>Do we still need to make that history report?>Fondle Kitten
>>28860335We're done with the history report
>>28860335>>28860197Yeah we have a lot to do.Will there be a possibility to delegate some tasks to the rest of the command crew?
>>28860197>>Help Kitten prepare for the play.Create adverts for the Tankery program to distribute at the showing.
>>28860346Aw crap. We didnt score that A we needed then, did we?
>>28860358You can delegate tasks to the rest of your staff. They aren't just there to tell you things.
>>28860382No, I mean we pretty much done all we can for the history report. Even Trude think we can't do anything for it. >>28860383That's good to know though I don't think any of the quests we have right now, should be left to anyone but ourselves for now. except maybe send someone to check the shop.
>>28860206Wot in the wot quest?
> Embark on a Subquest (Operation Bertram)You decide on calling Octavia. After a minute or two, she answers her phone. “Morning, Gertrude, what’s up?”“Hey, Octavia. Just calling to see if you needed any help regarding the play. General status update on that too, would you kindly?”“Sure. Well, we got our main cast. I did some work with the Creative Writing Club to trim down some extraneous characters, lines, songs, etc. Took me the better part of a few days but thankfully we’re now starting to distribute the edited scripts and I think we have a tighter narrative overall.”“Cool, cool. What else is there?”“Well, I managed to get the Theatre Arts kids, you know Robert and her posse, and they’re finally doing some actual work alongside the Theatre Tech kids. All I had to do was shout at them, how about that?”“Yeah, how about that?”“Anyway, so far, play’s coming along nicely. I’m also in contact with your Freshmen band of all things to get songs together too. Rehearsals will be Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, to sort of schedule around your Tankery Practice. I’ll handle the rehearsals but you’re free to visit if you’d like.”“Cool. I’ll see if I can.”“Alright, as for immediate help. I don’t suppose you could spare an additional 5,000 Dollars for our budget? One of our setpieces collapsed in on itself and we need to replace it… again. Plus, I hear you converted your SU-122 to a T-34 and I was wonder if we could borrow that as well.”> ACCEPT? (- 5,000 Dollars + T-34/76 MODEL 1941 will be unavailable until play)> Y
>>28860477>> YDo it.
>>28860383Alright.How about we have Nancy study other tankery teams?Lisa can consult the shop for anything new and status update on the Pershing as well as a gun upgrade so we can convert to E4. A panther too damaged for restoration could serve as parts for the spaced armor. Have her look for WTB ads too. Maybe we can deal tanks for a profit. You never know.We can then, for now, go do the play, see if we can recruit another ace, go to the bookstore and read a bit in the meantime. Not necessarily in that order.
>>28860477Whoops. Forgot the N and the other. Just ignore that.

> Y> Other“Yeah, sure. I’ll have Lisa transfer the money. You can swing by the Sports Warehouse and grab the T-34 too.”“Alright, hope I’m not intruding or anything.”“Oh it’s fine, Samantha and her team might be a bit peeved but I can handle that”“Alright, thanks. If you want to go over the script I’ll be over at the auditorium.”“Righto, see you.”You pocket your phone then say, “Girls. We gotta some work done today. Nancy,” She immediately brings you a plate of pancakes, which you take graciously. “Oh, thank you. But Nancy, I need you to get to studying some Tankery teams we might meet in the Tournament today. Look through replays, highlights, match histories, that sort of stuff.”Nancy nods. “I’ll do my best.”You snap your finger. “Lisa. I need you to look over upgrades and conversions with Mr. Mishka regarding the Pershing when it arrives on Wednesday. I want you to call me as soon as you can regarding what conversions will be available.”Lisa nods. “Okay, I can do that.”“Ramirez,” you say. “Uh…” Ramirez looks at you, having woken up a little earlier during your ordering. “Actually, Ramirez, I don’t have anything for you to do.”She shrugs. “That’s fine.”…You sigh.

> Call Someone (Rifle Team)> Embark on a Subquest (Operation Bertram)“Anyway, I’m gonna head to the auditorium and look over the new scripts with Octavia.” You pull out your phone and start dialing Samantha’s number. “Stay safe you guys.”With that, you head out of your dorm and make for school. On a Sunday no less. Whatever, you await Samantha’s answer eagerly.“Samantha, what’s up?”“Hey, it’s Gertrude.”“Ah, what’s up, Gertrude? Something to do with tanks I’m guessing?”“Yeah. Good news and bad news. Good news is, we converted your SU-122 to a T-34. Bad news is Octavia requested it for the play to stand in as a prop so it won’t be available until the play’s over.”“Oh. That’s a shame.”> - 5 MORALE TO TEAM MINIE“Well, don’t worry. It’ll only be a couple of weeks. Plus we got a surplus of tanks coming in, so don’t fret. Remember to show up on Monday for Practice, okay?”“Alright, alright. See you, Gertrude.”You hang up and pocket your phone. You check the time, and see that you got some time. Maybe it’ll be worth it to hit up a bookstore or something.> Go to Bookstore> Go to Auditorium> Go back home> Call someone (Specify)> Other

>>28860879I doubt we will see him in awhile but he's in the same ship ace is if I recall. so meeting him might be a eventuality
>>28860913>>Kitten time, Wake/play with the adorableness.
>>28860913we should have asked them first> Go to Bookstore
Rifle team needs some serious morale boosting. Are there some interests of theirs outside of Tankery we could give some of our attention to, or something within the scope of practice that they might particularly enjoy?
>>28860985They're ok, but yes we need to get them some TLC soon. Perhaps a nice /85 upgrade or their loyalty mission ASAP.
>>28861002Sorry, I don't think it's worth alienating one of our crew over, unless acquiring them involves a serious apology on their part and some reconciliation. Plus we may end up with the animation club either as a crew, or as someone that offers another form of support to us, and recruiting the otakus is liable to leave a bad taste in their mouth as well. My memory might be foggy, but maybe we could ask the rifle team if they would crew their tank as extras in the play if they aren't already. It might help them feel somewhat better about the situation.
>>28861111Nice quads. Anyway, I think one of them the commander? tried out for one of the main supporting roles.
> Go to BookstoreYou arrive at one of the local bookstores and step inside. It’s a bit cozy so to speak. There’s a lot of shelves for books of all kinds from teen lit to sci-fi to academic papers and some tables for some reading. You figure this could be a good place to study, if you ever actually studied.> Note: While inside Bookstores, reading a book will now progress 20% instead of 10%.You greet the bookkeeper at the counter, an old man. “Morning, do you have books on tanks?”The bookkeeper turns his chair to his computer and quickly types something in. He adjusts his glasses a bit, then says, “We have only two at the moment. Achtung, Panzer! By Heinz Guderian. That’s a good academic one, and we also have Bare-arsed Ferdinand by Mikhail Strelnikov, a fictional account of a crewmember of an SU-76.”You nod. “Okay,” You scratch your chin, thinking on purchasing one or both.> BOOKS FOR SALE:> Achtung, Panzer!

>>28861349Considering the parts we need to buy to convert it. not really. I rather spend the money on buying upgrades like upgunning the sherman
> Buy Book (ALL THE BOOKS)> Read Book (My Tank is Fight!)You pull out your credit card. “I’ll take both. The whole batch!”> - 250 DOLLARSYou sit down at one of the tables then get to reading My Tank is Fight. With the now quieter, more studious atmosphere so to speak, it was now easier to focus on the book. You start skimming through pages than you normally would and soon, you’re past the 120 page mark and beyond.> “My Tank is Fight!” Progress: 70%You yawn, putting the book down.

Can someone give me a status update on the ace crew? Specifically those we still need to recruit and our standing with them?
> Read Book (My Tank is Fight)> Embark on another Subquest (Operation Bertram)You continue on reading through My Tank is Fight. You sift through all the technical drawings, the accounts, and more as you blaze through the book. Soon, you’ve pretty much tired yourself out, and you’re hungry, but you’re that much closer to finishing it.> “My Tank is Fight!” Progress: 90%Your stomach growls a bit. You need some sustenance. Whatever, you stand up and take your books with you and then leave the bookstore. Time to head to school.You walk along, rubbing your stomach, books under your free arm. It’s been a while since you’ve actually went without a lunch. Hopefully Octavia has something. You arrive at the auditorium and are immediately greeted by the sound of working Theatre Tech kids. You can see Octavia sitting on the stage with YES SOME FIVE GUYS.You run over and immediately point to her fries, begging. She nods and immediately you start digging in.“So, what’s up, Gertrude?” she asks.> Boast> Neutral> Polite

>>28861570By the way, when is the play due again?
> Boast“Oh, I’m just dandy, Octavia. Slept like a baby, getting some reading done.” You hold up your freshly purchased books. “Bought these.”Octavia takes Achtung, Panzer from you. “Oooh, Guderian. Classic.” She hands it back to you. “That’ll definitely get you places.” She holds up an extra copy of the script, which you take. You find that it’s not a lot shorter. “There’s the new script,” she say. “As you can see, it’s shorter. Goes from three hours to an hour and a half now.”You nod. “Cool.” You take a bite out of a fry and review the script. “So, this is what we’re going to use now?”She nods. “Yep. Feel free to keep that one. I’ve already sent out ones to the people have been cast. I think if we keep on schedule, we’ll be ready for this play on the 18th.”You nod and start leafing through the script.> Converse Casually> Talk Tanks> Embark on another subquest (Specify)> Go Somewhere Else (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read Book (Specify)> Other

> Converse Casually> Talk TanksYou lean back as you sit on the stage. “So, Octavia, what are you thinking of our line up? The Short Barrel 120mm should arrive today and the Pershing arrives on Wednesday.”Octavia nods. “I’m still confused as to why you bought a Pershing.”“Isn’t it a good tank?”She shrugs. “It’s not a bad tank. I just don’t think of it as particularly… good either. There really isn’t anything special about it. 90mm can penetrate Tigers definitely, but there’s problems with the engine from a Sherman mind you, then there’s its inability to rough it in cross-country. But it’s a tank. Not good, not bad either.”You scratch your chin, thinking on it. “So… not a good purchase?”“I would’ve gone with the alternatives, but we’ll see what you do with it.”“Speaking of which, how are the others?”Octavia bites her lip. “Uh, well. Bolter has expressed an interest to return. As for the others well… they claim they’re too busy.”“Ah, I see.”Octavia says, “If you want, we can try and talk to them?”> Embark on Subquest: For Auld Lang Syne?> Y/N> Other
>>28861985> YIf she thinks it won't backfire, sure.
>>28861985> YNot Bolter though, give her some time to think and she'll return on her own.

>>28862059Quite a few tanks to be honest, since the t-34 is our of commission until the play is over. we're going to be getting more crews then tanks
> Y“Sure. Who do you think we can get on board first?”Octavia says, “Well, Kate and Michelle are right out for the moment. But I think we can start with Wendy.”You nod. “Alright, Wendy. How do we get her aboard then?”“I’ll give her a call.” Octavia pulls out her phone. After a few moments, Wendy answers, and Octavia puts the conversation on speaker phone. “Hey, Wendy. It’s Octavia!”Wendy says, “Ah, Octavia. What’s up?”“Not much. What are you up to?”“Finishing up my Online Courses for the week. What about you?”“Working on the play, actually, me and Gertrude wanted to talk to you-““Oh for fucks sake.”You say, “Hi, Wendy!”“Look, I don’t want to do Tankery okay, I told you once and I’ll tell you again.”> Pathos> Ethos> Logos> Let Octavia try and convince her> Other

I think if we really want to increase it to, say, 15 tanks, maybe some redundancy on tanks are better for our part supply. Like say, having 2 panthers or 2-3 Shermans.

Are you some kind of sociopath?”“I’m not saying to forget it ever happened, but look at us! Wendy, can you honestly say you’re happy in Naval Studies?”“Yes!... actually no but the important thing is that it’s free tuition and as far away from tanks as humanly possible!”Octavia crosses her arms. “Look, Wendy. It’s your choice, but I’d really love for you, for all of you to come back to Tankery, okay?”“Octavia, we just can’t- I mean-“ She sighs. “Look. I’ve moved on alright, Tanks are for little girls okay, and that-““They bought an M26E1 with the post-war T54 90mm gun.”…Wendy says, “Pardon?” Octavia repeats herself, a little more slowly. “… Gertrude.”You blink, then say, “Yeah?”“Are you fucking retarded?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

It’s a tank that can’t decide what it is, not to mention that you could run faster than it in a fucking muddy field!”Octavia also says, “You know, they also picked up a couple more tanks, a Short Barrel 120mm Chi-Ha, a Panzer IV C, and a Sentinel tank.”“Jesus Christ, are you trying to make me mad, Octavia? I mean, the Panzer IV’s an excellent tank, but next you’ll be telling me they haven’t converted it to an F2 at least?” The silence is deafening. “What about their Sherman?” More silence. “… Oh for… ARE YOU MAD!?”You say, “Are you?”“YES!

>>28862540No, that tank is not manned by anyone so it's a waste of cash. We need to upgun the sherman or convert it into a m4a1 like in our dreams

> Converse Casually> Talk TanksYou frown. “Wow, I feel like I’ve took a huge hit to my ego.”Octavia nods. “Wendy’s not one to hold back when she know there’s something wrong. And there is something wrong fundamentally speaking with your line up. They’re all pretty much stock, you haven’t bought new parts or applied appliqué armor anything. You’re essentially going into the Tournament pretty naked.”You shrug. “Well, I admit, I have a lot to learn about tanks. But I’m glad you guys are here at least to give me some info.”“Of course, admittedly Michelle won’t take kindly to Wendy badmouthing the Pershing.”“The Pershing’s one of Michelle’s favorites?”“One of her favorites,” she says, smiling. “Her real favorite is the Easy Eight Sherman.”You smile, crossing her arms. “Think I might get brownie points if I convert it then?”“Maybe.” She shrugs, smiling.

>>28862690The Pershing still being Vintage and getting here Wednesday is my only problem with that. I'd also rather them have something more similar to their T-34 than the Pershing, their going to get left behind in training since we switch them so much.
>>28862715They had a tiger tank. Also, their elites they can adapt quickly
>>28862649> Answermoshi moshi
hmm. We actually have 12 tanks. Maybe only 11 if we decided to not field that Chi-ha.I am about to suggest get more Sherman in future but eh, forget that for now.
>>28862751>moshi moshiPanzer desu
>>28862731I don't think we're talking about the same thing. I thought you said giving the Rifles the Pershing, which is where my stuff came from.Elites can deal with it yes, if the rest of the crew will hop in.
>>28862715>>28862731Seems to me we either put them in the Panzer IV or kick the delinquents out of the Panther.
>>28862782No, The rifle team has their t-34 so it's fine. Also if the rifle team is handling the panzer or the Chi-ha, it's only for a little while, no need for upgrades until we have more permiant crew
>>28862800We need to buy a vintage tiger. The aces will transform it into an elite vehicle anyway.
> Answer“Hey, Nancy, what’s up?”“Just calling to let you that I’ve been doing some studying on other Tankery Teams like you asked. A lot of teams are gonna be entering in the ITL, British, French, Russian, and the Japanese of course. I’ve been looking at this one school, Kursk Girls Boarding School. I’ve also been taking a look at J. Walter Christie Tech as well, this is actually their first tournament that isn’t Tankery Unlimited.”You nod. “Cool, cool. Let me put you on speakerphone.”Octavia says, “Hi, Nancy.”“Hi, Octavia! Gonna be advising us today?”Octavia nods. “Sure. Where do you want to start first?”> Kursk Girls Boarding School> J.

>>28862800I'd rather leave the Delinquents, we need to keep them as happy as we can so they want to improve.>>28862814That's what I meant when I said we need to recruit, we need crews for the 3-4 tanks we have without them.>>28862817That's what Monday is for.
>>28862831>> Kursk Girls Boarding School
>>28862837Just keep in mind we need to make money, not spend it, until then
>>28862814...I just remember Octavia borrows their T-34 for play. So well, maybe we should consider upgrading that panzer for their (temporary) tank>>28862831> Kursk Girls Boarding SchoolRussian ho! We might need to send some spy to get intel.
>>28862860I know, which sucks because there is a decent bit we could do to our tanks for cheap, but we want a good tank for the Aces.
>>28862817Where does that leave the Pershing? >>28862837All in due time but considering how tight our budget is and our time, we need to focus on improving our tanks
>>28862887Eh, people here only seem to buy retarded upgrades anyway. We're better off with the Tiger.I have no idea why Schteel seems to think Schürtzen would actually help against projectiles larger than the average small arms bullet, but we need to make sure we don't fall into that trap.
>>28862893In our garage
>>28862916But the extra armor is good, and the only dumb purchase that we made was the pershing which convinced wendy
>>28862893Yeah, I know. Balancing money when we don't know how much we're going to have is hard. >>28862916Schurzen works, otherwise they wouldn't have used it. I'm just not sure it's worth our money for what we get. Upgrading vs buying will be our big thing for awhile.
>>28862935God forbid she learns how much we actually paid for it.
>>28862935Depends entirely on the tank. For most, it's nothing but added weight.
>>28862916>>28862935I'll refrain to buy more heavy for now.And i don't think the Aces will magically come with Tiger.
>>28862971You fuckers still misunderstand this shit? Holy fucking crap.I'll explain it to you.1. Buy vintage or comp. spec. tank.2. Recruit Ace Crew3. Put aces in tank.4. Congratulations! Your tank evolved into Elite Spec!
>>28862957True, but an improved suspension may prove wonders.
>>28862997What if it's already Elite Spec? It evolves to Gamebreaker Synergy Spec?
>>28862997We already completed step 1 (Buy pershing.)We're doing step two now
>>28862997....so my point still stand, we still need to buy tanks for them.
>>28863042No, it means you wasted an Elite tank that you could have used for a non-ace crew, while the ace crew transforms a second tank into elite as well.
> Kursk Girls Boarding School“Tell us about Kursk.”“Well,” Nancy says, “Kursk Girls Boarding School is one of the Veteran teams. Usually tops in at least the top three in their National Tournaments if not outright winning it most of the time. They have a heavy emphasis on Assault Guns and Tank Destroyers. Thus, I assume they’re really big into ambush tactics.”> INTEL UNLOCKED> KURSK GIRLS BOARDING SCHOOL ROSTER> ISU-152 (ELITE) x 2> ISU-152 (COMP. SPEC) x 10> ISU-122 (COMP. SPEC) x 10> SU-152 (COMP.

Isn’t that illegal?”Octavia says, “There’s a difference between the SU-76M and the SU-76B. The M variant is the more well-known one, the one with the open crew compartment. The B variant was produced in fewer numbers but it has a closed compartment which means a lot of teams use it in that configuration or convert SU-76Ms to it as soon as possible.”You nod. “I see, and they rely on ambush tactics?”“Looks like it,” says Octavia. “The 152 Assault guns can blow turrets off Tiger tanks theoretically and can one shot pretty much anything. In those kinds of numbers, getting into an ambush with them is practically a death sentence.”> “Anything else we need to know, Octavia?”> J. Walter Christie Polytechnical Institute> Other
>>28863065>> “Anything else we need to know, Octavia?”Jesus Christ that's a lot of very big angry guns.
>>28862997Yeah, we just need to stop making kneejerk purchases with the justification that we'll upgrade/convert it later while neglecting our current lineup. I mean, shit, we're rolling in the Sherman which was literally one of the most heavily customized tanks in the war and it's still fucking vanilla.

>>28863136Stuart, Somua and Sherman.Provided we can get to their flank.
>>28863161If they have any sense then if we flank them we just encountered the second layer of their ambusha match against them becomes a game of terrain use and maneuver.
>>28863099i second this
We need artillery. Self-propelled guns in Indirect Fire. We need to train the pollacks and the SPG crew to coördinate spotting and shooting over radio. Codewords, coördinates, landmarks, distance estimation, etc.
>>28863245That's a horrible idea.
> “Anything else we need to know, Octavia?”> J. Walter Christie Polytechnical InstituteOctavia says, “It might be in theory easy to get around their flank, yes, but that’s a very surprisingly mobile force. You could use the ISUs and SUs as fixers and the SU-76Bs as flank guards. Sure, none of their tanks actually have turrets mind you, but this is a veteran team that have made up for that lack of weakness with firepower and tactics.”You nod. “Nancy, what about Walter Christie, what have they got?”“Here’s the thing,” says Nancy, “I honestly don’t really know.”“Why’s that?”“Well, Christie practices Unlimited Tankery, they’re the reigning Unlimited Champions in North America.

>>28863334There was a 30mm MK108 variant of the kugelblitz. DU penetrators can seriously fuck light and medium tanks, and sides of lesser heavy tanks.
>>28863265> NeutralThey may be even crazier than us by putting those in their line-up.Was this also the school we sold the BT-42 off to?

>>28863370Yes it was.
>>28863363Since when did they have DU in fucking 1944?
>>288634211944 is when nukes were being developed. Are you seriously asking that question?It wasn't a common ammo, mind you, but the Lufwaffe used it a lot, since the MK108 was mainly strapped to aircraft.
>>28863421They had penetrators, probably not DU, idk not him.
>>28863334You know, that might be an idea.Get a couple of kugelblitzes or something to shred light tanks.

>>28863265> Boast>all those howitzersIf they don't change their name to JWC pyrotechnic institute, I will be very dissapointed.
>>28863363They had tungsten sabots and maybe wolfram cored rounds as well.There wasn't any uranium to deplete in 1944.
>>28863475Did someone say Skink?

You decide on browsing around on your smartphone, when you look up and see who else but-“Hey, Gertrude!” The Aviation Studies Club immediately surprises you by sitting at your table. “Fancy seeing you here,” says Marina.You smile. “Marina, girls. Good to see you.”Marina shakes her head. “Nah, nah.” They all look a bit sullen. “We just came back from our maiden voyage of our GeeBee actually.”“Oh, how’d that go?”“Poorly.” She motions over to Jenny, who you now realize looks like terrible. “The GeeBee had a mechanical failure in flight and it ended up crashing.”“Oh, are you okay, Jenny?”Jenny nods. “I’m fine.”Marina sulks, leaning on the table. “Sucks though. We spent ages on that GeeBee.”Katya says, “Took us damn near our entire funds to restore it, and it’s pretty much gone like that.”Lidya says, “It fucking sucks, that’s what.” She suddenly beams. “Oh, Marina, weren’t you going to ask Gertrude that thing?”Marina looks surprised, then she looks at you shyly. “Uh… if you’re interested, Gertrude.”> Interested?> Y/N> Other

>>28864346> Y>>28864331So either we kick the delinquent from panther or get them Tiger or maybe, for the lulz, Panther/M10....heck, if there are Panther/M10, maybe we should just transfer Delinquent to it because warcrime panther.
>>28864346>Ywhat is it?
Allright, so tankery/senshado question.As long as everything was produced, in production, or could have been produced by or in the cut off date in '45, it's legal right?So does that mean backmods towards stuff is legal? The Firefly only fits a crew of 4 because the ammunition storage ate a lot of space...but that's because they went into the field carrying a load of something like 80 rounds.No way a tankery match needs 80 rounds from a 17 pounder. Can we get the naval students to make it all fit with a lower ammunition load to keep that extra crew space?Similar question for the Pershing. Can we get the Naval Studies kids to try to hack in a 17pdr or something?
>>28864429We'd have to go to the Senshado league for that.
>>28864389We're not kicking the deliquents out of their tank. There doing good in it, we give them what we have, it's not like we're recruiting all of them right away, so we have time.I still eaither want them to use the pershing, or we sell it.
>>28864346>YAlso, Jenny basically went through method acting with what happened to her. Oh wow.
>>28864463Having never watched/read/seen/viewed/[actioned] any of the actual GUP media, can you detail that process for me?
>>28864471I'm perfectly good with kicking the delinquents of their tank, they haven't named it yet, so they're not too attached to it, the Pershing would be perfectly fine for their purposes.
>>28864346>YAlso, about the Pershing: would it be within the rules to mount a supercharger onto the GAN? The base for the GAN was intended as a V-12 fighter engine, downsized to a V-8. Most of the WW2 fighter engines were super/turbo/twincharged, so it's conceivable that one could be mouted to the GAN.
>>28864494That's one of the things that is always said but explained in no detail. It's canon, but their is no actual process. tldr, it'd basically be up to Schteel.

But, no more. We looked through the archives and there may be at least five functional planes lying around. We don’t know where, but they’re somewhere.”“I see.

>>28864601Yes, provided it does not interfere with the tournament.
>>28864570They chose it because the Panther was big, that's it, no deeper meaning.

>>28864737You see any Tigers popping up?In any case, the Panther is actually better in some respects than the Tiger, especially its frontal armor.
>>28864707>>28864737Then why did we buy a freaking Pershing! That's it, we're going to sell it first chance we get and hopefully break even
>>28864649they are getting good in it we just need to boost their morale and I think they might be one of are top crews>>28864707what ever tank we give the aces becomes a super tank so we should give them what ever tank has the biggest gun we have when we get them

>>28864778Delinquents keep the Panther, we can wait.
>>28864678Yes I know but even that's not nearly enough given we need to bump up our tanks and etc. Also need some for contingencies as well.That said, we are getting some cash tomorrow from sponsorships I believe. I'd change my vote but the consensus seems to be Y so whatever.
>>28864748I see getting the Aces a good tank as a pretty good reason to antagonise them.>>28864787I see them breaking out of 'shit', they aren't even close to the Aces.And there's a lot more to tanks than their guns you goddamn ninny.

>>28864829>>28864863But to have a fight over Bolter and the Deliquent girl is rather them, we will give them their choice of any avaiable tanks we have at the moment. and that's it.Also why did we buy the pershing?

>>28864896>Also why did we buy the pershing?RetardationEven Schteel tried to make us cancel the order by having pretty much every NPC tell us how retarded it is, but some people are just oblivious to common sense
>>28864891What?They hit a target, THAT IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT DOING SO CONSISTENTLY UNDER COMBAT CONDITIONS.Are you legitimately retarded? Because they are fucking lightyears away from the Aces, and possibly will be forever. You have nothing on you apart from "they hit these targets under controlled conditions", big fucking whoop.>>28864896Again, says you. I'm voting to kick them out.
>>28864928I never said they were as good as the aces and ok vote to kick them out your the only one that wants to do that
>>28864863The Aces can't win the tournament alone. We need a good team and the delinquents are a part of that team. And since they aren't here volentarily we need to look out for their morale so that they can become a asset for team. And I believe letting them keep their tank helps with that
>>28864874> Read Book (Specify)
>>28864874> Read Book (My Tank Is Fight)Second read through.

>>28864963Oh, we'll see when the actual vote comes up.>>28864966The Aces contribute a fuckton more to that team than the Delinquents, this is common fucking sense.
>>28864874>Read Book (My Tank is Fight)The biggest problem with the delinquents is that they are horribly unmotivated. If we can't solve that, then giving them one of our better thanks is as absolute waste.
>>28865001Let's just see what happens when the time comes. If we get another tank hurray!If not we'll sort it out later, I already said my piece.

You think today’s been pretty productive. You’ve convinced the Ace Loader to join, you’ve worked a little on the play, and you’ve finished your first book on Tanks. Well not technically tanks but you get what you mean anyway.With that, you arrive at Kitten’s dorm without incident. You open the door and walk in and see Kitten behind the TV, ass in the air as she wires her PS3 and the Xbox 360 to the TV and into their power outlets.You quietly sneak up behind her, then stand over her. Once she’s finished, she rises then immediately yelps in surprise at seeing you. “Ah! Goddamn it, Trudy! Don’t do that!”You chuckle, “Sorry. Sorry. Couldn’t resist, your cute little ass was in the air and I felt the need to demonstrate the dangers of ‘asking for it’.”She rolls her eyes. “Yeah, whatever.” She sits down. “So, what do you want to do?”> Games> Movie> Read Book (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Talk with Kitten> Other

> Games“What games you got, Kitten?”She bends down, shifting through the cases. “Well, I got World of Tanks, Crimson Skies, Halo, Call of Duty, Bioshock: Infinite, The Walking Dead: The Game, Forza Motorsport, WWE, uh…”You tilt your head. “How about something we can play together?”Kitten nods, pursing her lips as she browses. “Ah… How about World of Tanks? We’re Tankery students after all.”“Yeah, sure.” She opens up the case and inserts it into the 360. “Though, I gotta admit, I don’t take you for a gamer, Gertrude. You know what you’re doing?”You take up a controller, puffing out your chest. “Of course! Guys love girl gamers you know?”Kitten says, “If that were true, I wouldn’t have you called you over, I’d be having sex with my boyfriend.”You scoff. “Whatever.

Does the "W" in the M4A1(76)W refer to "Wet Ammo Rack"?We might wanna get that then, since Ace made the killing shot at that spot in the side with the ammo stowed.Let's learn from our losses here.
>>28866218It does. But a penetrating hit is a white flag, whether the ammo explodes or not.
> Follow Kitten“Whatever, I’ll follow you. Let’s go.”Thus, your trusty yet retardedly slow TOG II starts up the hill for the Castle section of the map. You see blips on the minimap indicating allies and enemies. Most enemies appear to be going into your lane.“They’re all going after us,” you say.“Stand fast, Trudy,” says Kitten as she and a very helpful Jagdpanzer IV push you up the hill. “Thank you, Mr. Jagdpanzer IV.”Your TOG immediately crests the hill then is immediately beset upon by a Hellcat and a very poorly platooned Leichttraktor. You bring the TOG hard to starboard, and immediately their shells start bouncing off thanks to the incredible angling. Any shots that do penetrate are immediately absorbed by your absurdly huge health pool.Kitten thus takes the time to take potshots from behind you as you move. “Yeah, just keep like that, Trudy.”You ask, “Did you just bring me over here to use me as a shield?”“Noooo… I just didn’t think you’d choose the TOG.”You hit the Hellcat, ammo racking it and causing it blow. “Yes!

>>28866710>Bound the cornerA flying TOG, truly a majestic sight.
>>28866789Getting the Sherman to the M4A1(76)W standard is probably more than adequate for the moment. Seeing how much it takes to get the Panzer IV to Ausf. F2 or even better Ausf. H would also be worthwhile. We don't have a crew for it, but transferring the Sewing Club from the dead-end Somua S-35 would provide another capable late-war medium tank in the lineup. If the funds work out that we can upgrade the T/34 to late-war 85mm standard, that would give us a quartet of highly effective medium tanks as a maneuver element capable (in theory) of dealing with anything the team might be faced with.That said we still have more tanks than crews. so recruiting new crews is pretty important. But when spending money we need to maximize the effectiveness of the tanks we are using. Octavia's commentary makes me suspect that customization has been underrated. Maybe we should also look at applique armor packages for the manned tanks, and the improved suspension packages? They seem cheap enough on a per-tank basis, anyway.
> Continue playing Games> Consult the Shop (I need to keep better track of the Budget)“Hey, Kitten, get us into the next round, I need to make a quick call.”Kitten nods. “Righto.”You quickly dial up Mr. Mishka, and he answers within the minute. “Gertrude, what can I help you with?”“Just calling for potential upgrades to the Sherman. Preferably something with the 76mm Gun?”“Sure, we have the M4A1(76)W with wet stowage and 76mm gun here for 17,000 Dollars. I checked with your budget, looks like you have… 18,700 Dollars at current. Whoo, might drain your budget, but I think it’s a worthy upgrade. Will you confirm it?”> CONFIRM?> Y/N> Other
>>28866903As near as I can tell we've got around 15 grand left in the bank, with an unknown amount of dollars coming in Monday from the Moroccan sponsorship.We could get the Churchill, Stuart, Sherman Improved Suspensions, and grab the Sherman its 76mm gun. I think the Bulldozer might be of value too.
>>28866961>YMake it happen. Sponsorships are coming tomorrow, we should be ok.

>>28866961yikes...um....> Otherwhat about slapping extra armor on the tanks?
>>28867011None of the other tanks actually in use would benefit from available upgrades as much as the Sherman does from this one.
>>28866903About Sewing Club.. I'd look at our first match on tourney first before deciding transferring them to better tank. Well, we have a Pz IV so if needed we can ask them to transfer quickly. I don't see we will recruiting for near future.And howabout with more medium for future lineup?
>>28867042I think they like there tank though, and there deadly with the Souma.
>>28866961NBefore we do anything else, I'd consult the aces, so we don't end up with any more fucking stupid decisions, Especially when this will drain our budget
>>28867011Seriously?We've been shelling out all sorts of money on other tanks for conversions and upgrades and literally done nothing for the Sherman and you think its favoritsm?
>>28867024That will come to 4950 I believe. >>28867042I'd actually prefer another light tank. At present we have 5 meds, 2 heavies and one light. We have a med/heavy and a SPG equivalent coming. I would prefer another scout.Then again, I am horribly biased because I only play light tanks in WoT. Still, in the long run, more meds is probably a good idea, outside of astonishingly good bargains.>>28866961>YWe get cash soon right? Should be alright for now.
>>28867088I think they will think it's a good idea to put something, anything for the sherman

Keep up the good work.”“You too, Gertrude.”> Note: Conversions take a full day unless otherwise prompted by the narrative.

>>28867086>>28867165At some point they'll only as effective as Ooarai type 89.Maybe on our first 2-3 matches Somua will suffice, but at some point we will need to upgrade them with better tank for firepower. ...Well, we can always delegate Sewing Club to scouting roles, if we can get more member with late-end mediums.If we managed to get 15-20 tanks, i'd like to see more 76mm Shermans, Firefly, Late war Pz IVs or T-34-85... maybe with one more heavy.
>>28867179>CautiousGo up the hill. Hopefully we don't get blown to bits by Arty.

Nobody will ever suspect it, and hopefully no light tank manages to spot you. Kitten does the same, hiding her Jackson among more bushes near the cap point.Soon, you see what Kitten refers to as the lemmings run across the immensely huge field. You, Kitten, and more of your allied players open fire on them, and start draining the enemy team of their bad players.“This is fun!” you say. “How come we don’t play more World of Tanks together?”Kitten says, “You say that as if World of Tanks being regularly fun is a thing.” With that, Kitten is immediately one-shotted by arty. “Noooooo! They got me!”“I’LL AVENGE YOU, KITTEN!” You’re also hit by Arty, thankfully not killing you but wiping out most of your HP. “On second though, I’ll just keep doing this-“ you’re then shot by a KV-1S with the 122mm gun. “Aaaaand I’m dead.”She looks over at you, smirking. “Fun, isn’t it?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite

Well any post tanking discussions?Like what to do with the Chi-ha and Pershing?

>>28868503Keep the Chi-ha as is. We can use it as an landscaping unit, or in other words, blowing shit up to suit our purposes.So blasting apart bridges, collapsing buildings to block roads, or whatever else we can think of.
>>28868669Considering it's a free upgrade from Vintage to Elite, I'd rather do that then have to pay for comp spec for no reason.

>>28868725We only get one elite upgrade boyo, doing it for the sake of coin-counting, especially on a tank most of the team hates, is quite frankly the height of idiocy. Remember what Ace did to us? You're proposing wasting THAT on a sub-par tank.
>>28868747How so?I rather not take away the Delinquent's tank in which they spend time training in
>>28868767I'm still confused why we bought it?And we have it now? So what now? this is like the GMC all over again
>>28868777I'd rather not stuff the Aces in a tank that most of them hate for the sake of your delinquentboner.
>>28868807Excuse me? We have plenty of other choices besides the panther, and we haven't recruited them all anyway so I'm just thinking of what to do with this tank?
>>28868803We bought it because uninformed decisions. Whether bad or good, I leave to you.
>>28868850Except the Panther is our best tank.Which we can elite.See my logic here?A couple of practice sessions in the Panther isn't going to magically weld them to the Panther and cripple them when we take it away.
>>28868883Pretty sure it was bad, between the sherman bashing, and the pershing boasting despite two experts and nancy were confused by the choice>>28868885then why didn't we tell them the Panther's off limits
>>28868919Because we let them PICK their own tank when we first recruited them.
>>28865763>Thanks to the magic of internet and Wargaming becoming a developer company that actually works without some amount of Russian biassuspension of disbelief: broken
>>28868926I remember that, but I also remember that a few voted to tell them to shelf the panther. but I'm still wondering what do we do with the pershing.
>>28868919I really wish we did.Then again, there were some sperging anons raging about how we weren't using it, whatever, in any case the course of action with the most return is transferring the delinquents to another tank (they seem to like big tanks, so the Pershing should suffice) and give the Aces the tank most suited for them.
http://pastebin.com/qVD3DM17>8 tank crewsI want the next practice session to be an informal 4vs4 match.It'll at least give us an opportunity for the crews to operate in independent teams without us needing to micro them.Alternating pick between the chosen team leaders.
>>28868965that really will seem to give more head aches though.It will still be awhile before we recruit all of them not to mention in that time the deliquent might get attached to the thing.No more morale decreases
>>28869017As far as I'm concerned, an elite Panther will more than make up for that.We have a lot more riding on the tournament than just the delinquents after all.
>>28869030I guess, my main reason is that it feels like a dick move.and I really dislike the pershing, and to me eliting it seems like the only way I can accept the thing.However, I won't force neither side. I still propose they get to choose any unmanned tanks we have available.
