Let me know however if a dedicated character sheet is more preferable.You are Gertrude Pool, Sophomore Class President and new commander of Lafayette Girls Academy’s revived Tankery Team.Today’s an early start for you for some reason. Maybe it was the fact that you didn’t want to wake up with another accidental hickey. Or perhaps it was because you had Tank practice today. Regardless of reasons, you and Kitten showered together, and quickly got yourself clothed for the day.The two of you settle around the table for breakfast, which was simple instant noodles. Nothing particularly special about that.EXCEPT IT WAS COLD AS FUCK. HOLY SHIT.You shiver a bit. “Why is it so cold!?”Kitten shrugs. “Do I look like a weatherman to you?”You roll your eyes then lean back in your seat. You got some time before classes.

If it's so cold we should share a scarf with Kitten
>>30081552Lacking funds isn't that big a deal. We can wishlist it and put off buying the upgrade for the Tiger II. Do you think the T-80 is a good investment anon?
> Read a Book (Where’s Waldo)FUUUU-“There he is,” says Kitten, pointing to Waldo hiding in the gap between the Marines raising the flag over Iwo Jima.You sigh. “Thank you, Kitten.”“You’re really bad at Where’s Waldo, you know?” she says as she finishes up her noodles.“Well thanks for the vote of confidence, Kitten,” you say as you put your bowl down into the sink. “Of course, I’m not the one giving people hickeys in their sleep.”Kitten blushes, fuming. “Oh, don’t start!”You walk over to her closet and grab some coats. Ugly as sin, but damn if they aren’t warm. You hand one to Kitten, then get to putting yours on. Kitten also grabs her scarf and yours.You say, “Why is it so cold today?” as you wrap your neck up in the scarf. You and Kitten leave the dorm and meet your staff, all of whom are clad in their school coats. Except for Lisa, who’s actually gotten a very stylish violet dufflecoat.“Morning, President!” says Nancy. “Shall we?”You lock up the door, and you all head on to school.> Talk Tanks (Topic?)> Converse Casually (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>30081716>> Read a Book (Waldo)> Converse Casually (Lisa's Coat)>>30081711It's an interesting tank and might be the best light tank made by the Russains.Not sure if many anons will agree with me though but I do want to at least Wishlist it.Then again it's Vintage
>>30081716> Converse CasuallyJust ask everyone how they are doing, we've been pretty busy reading lately.
>>30081716> Call Someone (Marina)Ask if she's freaking out about the demonstration and if she'll need help. May as well figure this out now.
>>30081776We can do that during tank practice anon.
>>30081758I don't know about other anons but I want to get started turning that Sherman chassis into a Firefly (that was the plan for it, right?) before the Walter Christie match. Not sure we need an expensive light.
>>30081716> Converse CasuallyRelieving the besieged Animation Club settlement!If you guys want to read the book more, head to the library so you can make progress at double the pace, and we can return it at the same time while there.
>>30081758Hellcat's still way better. Not interested in an expensive light we don't need.
> Converse Casually“Where’d you get that coat, Lisa?”Lisa looks down at her coat. “Oh, this thing? The Sewing Club put it together for me. For free mind you.”You nod. “I suppose it’s like you to accept free stuff.”“The only people who don’t accept free stuff are idiots and proud idiots,” says Lisa as she runs her thumbs around the edges of her hood smugly. “Though, I see you’re wearing the schoolcoat. Not concerned with how fugly that thing is?”You shrug. “If it works, it works.”Nancy says, “Oh, when we get the time, we should definitely go shopping for clothes. But this week seems so busy.” She sighs. “I miss August. Much less to worry about.”You say, “Hey, think of it like this, Nancy. Once we get through the tournament, we’ll be in business.”You arrive at the campus. Students of all kinds are wearing coats, whether the school or their own. It’s a cloudy day today as well, but it doesn’t look likely that it’ll rain.Anything you want to do before class?> Head to Class> Talk Tanks (Topic?)> Converse Casually (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>30081830>>30081868Also true, I like the T-80 but we have more important things to do, still kind of want to Wishlist it though,We should also push back the Sauders practice match, give it maybe a few more days or maybe a week so we can get a couple more crews and have rifle team adjusted to their t-34
>>30081895> Read a Book (Where's Waldo)In the library.We can talk to Marina at practice and the animation club girl during gym. We don't get much time for the library. Heck, we might get to talk to our bookworm friend.

>>30081924I think you didn't read my post properly.>Hellcat's still way better. Not interested in an expensive light we don't need.>we don't needI'm not interested in getting it at all.
>>30081895> Read a Book (Where's Waldo)In the library.
>>30081895> Other (Head to the Library)Maybe unlock an arbitration mission for the Reading Club and Writing Club.> Read a Book (Where's Waldo?)
>>30081954I can see your point Anon, and I do agree to an extent so i won't argue considering it is expensive since it is a vintage, though I'm not sure a Hellcat is a light tank. We need the funds for the Sherman but other then that what do you think we need?
>>30081981It can sure as hell work as one, along with fitting in in a variety of roles.
>>30081924Sounds good to me. I want as many fresh crews as we can manage beforehand because this match will be a great opportunity to get them experience.>>30081981Not him but we need upgrades for the Tiger II, T-34, StuG, and Sentinel I think.
Anon's I've been doing some research on the Firefly and it seems to be based off the M4A4 Sherman.The one thing I don't understand after doing it is what made the M4A4 Sherman different then the other variants?What I could understand is that they were given a different engine (did it make it faster? slower?but that was about it?Are there anymore characteristics that made it different?
>>30082032the Tiger II I can understand since it's cheap but we don't need right now. the t-34 I think is fine other then adding the equipment we did for our other tanks,Stug should be fineSentinel, not much to change other then the 17 pounder.
>>30081522Off-topic, but is that a fucking Jadgtiger? What the fuck Black Forest?
> Read a Book (Where’s Waldo)YOU CAN’T HIDE FOREVER, WALDO.…FUCK YOU WALDO.> Where’s Waldo in World War II: Progress: 140%You yawn quietly as you are in a library. You check the time. Decent amount of time for you to get to class. That Waldo though. Damn him. No longer shall you have people point him out for you, you’ll find him on your own and you’ll do it with pride.Or die trying.Not really but you get what you mean.You wave hello to Niven as she walks past you. A new book in her arms. It looked like Glory Road by Robert A. Heinlein. Girl must really love his stories.Anyway though, time to get to class. You arrive at your math class in good time. Your cellphone pings with a new email, but you can probably check that later at lunch. Now is the time for learning.Because you’ve been reading so much, you’ve actually picked up on the habit of taking notes. Thus, while your laptop isn’t the best platform for taking notes on algebra, you do what you can and surprisingly things seem to be sticking. It feels weird but you feel just a smidge smarter.English class is the same as well. You find yourself more consciously paying attention to things rather than falling asleep. Quite the turnover from the early days of September where falling asleep appeared to be the norm. Chemistry as well surprisingly is coming to you second nature like the breath from your lungs.Finally though, it’s time for lunch.> Find your staff> Head directly to lunch> Call Someone (Specify)> Other
We already need to put around 4 000 $ in the class budget, that should be more than enough for it.Also, we need more crews before thinking of doing something with the Sherman chassis, we have a Panzer IV and a Hellcat ready for battle. We can just use our money to upgrade our current tanks for now (Tiger II, Sentinel and Churchill in first).
>>30082109Oh my god, trudy is gettign smarter from Waldo! >Other Check e-mail
>>30082118Just rotate the better tanks (such as the Panzer IV for the Sewing Club and the Hellcat for the Poles) into our more experienced crews.
>>30082109> Check email> Find your staff
Can someone remind me when the play takes place?Also we have to ask the Aviation Studies Club if they'll able to fix their plane in time.As for new crews, we can do something about that conflict between the Anime and Animation clubs.
>>30082118Well I agree, we need to put in at leasr 4,000 dollars in the budet which should bring us to around 12k We also need to look for a new instructor soon. I'm okay with adding part like extra armor and stuff But I don't feel comfortable spending 9k until we at least see how much a new instructor will cost.not to mention the loyalty quest we might be doing as well as helping aviation club
>>30082152The Sewing club has 3 members, can we still put them into a Panzer IV or a Hellcat?
>>30082207The 18th and we have the match with Saunders on the 19th. i think we should postpone that like a week from now, to get crews and polish our tanks>>30082152They seem fine with their tanks, Not sure if sewing club likes German tanks.
>>30082241If the Rifles can operate the GMC, I'm sure the Sewing club will find a way to make due.
>>30082109> Find your staff> Other (Check e-mail)
>>30082242Jesus, that lets us 3 days.The Play shoud be our priority subquest for now, the aviation club still have around 2 weeks left.
>>30082260They operated it but not very effectively.
>>30082252Just because they seem fine with their tanks doesn't mean there's some cosmic law preventing us from getting them better tanks.
>>30082285That was because it was a Vintage Superheavy than anything.Vintage. Superheavy. Try and tell me that's not a recipe for disaster.
> OtherFrom: Ashley Ursula Lutz – ITL LiaisonTo: Gertrude PoolGreetings, Gertrude! I hope you’re doing well in your endeavors into life, love, and the way of the tank! I’m emailing you to inform you that we have just found out the next location and date for your next match against Walter Christie Polytechnical Institute!It’ll be in Sweden on October the 26th! As always, 72 hours ahead, you will be forwarded maps of the area and your selected flag tank!Bon chance!- Ashley - ITL…The 26th.…Ah shit. That’s kind of close.You sit down next your staff, a lunch of chicken nuggets, sliced oranges and a carton of milk on your tray.> Talk Tanks (Topic?)> Converse Casually (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>30081522Does this mean "Girls and Panties"?
>>30082314> Study a Tankery Team (Walter Christie)
>>30082314> 26thAw fuck, we better get upgrading soon.
>>30082304>I guess, If it was a 3 man crew for a 4 man tank then sure they can somehow manage but if it's a 5 man crew, I think they'll be overworked and it will be harder for them
>>30082314>It’ll be in SwedenSweden, huh?Gotta brush up on our Arabic.
>>30082357Well there are worse tanks than the S35 I guess, but at this stage I'm more interested in getting the Poles into that Hellcat more than anything.And getting either the T-34/85 or the Firefly before the match.
>>30082314How in the hell are we going to get to Sweden?We don't have Shoreleave until next month!
>>30082314Oh cockballs, I thought we had more breathing room.Okay! New crews are good, but I believe the smartest priority should be money and upgrades just like before. I don't think we should spend cash in the shop this week in case of unexpected expenses, but next week.> Study a Tankery Team (Walter Christie)
>>30082314>Read Waldo.I know you guys are worried but we still have too weeks, let's finish this book first and then divert our attention into Christie
>>30082314> Read a Book (Specify)Waldo
>>30082314> Read a Book (Where's Waldo)With matches within a week of each other (unless we move or cancel the Saunders practice match), it looks like we are gonna grind for perks and Command Points.
>>30082460I don't see why we would cancel the Saunders match, we can always use more experience.
>>30082427We have all rights to be worried, we only won last match because the aces unfucked everything.We're out of our league here, man
>>30082460We should also hand books towards our other teams,Autang Panzer to the Poles and the Book where we got the improved suspension and armor to the Aviation club
Maybe we shouldn't postpone the Saunders match after all. We'll probably need the practice, and what better way for the Rifles to get antiquated with their T-34?>>30082394I think the T-34/85 is the more realistic goal. We're going to put a newer crew in the Sherman most probably anyways.
- direct the play- find more crews (2 if possible)- upgrade our tonks- friendly match with Saunders (where?)- finish Waldo- study Walter ChristieIs that all?
>>30082490>We're going to put a newer crew in the Sherman most probably anyways.Those poor schmucks
> Read a Book (Where’s Waldo)AAAAHHHHH-“He’s right there,” says Lisa.You nod slowly, biting your lip. “Thank you, Lisa.”Lisa shrugs. “Don’t mention it.”> Where’s Waldo in World War II: Progress: 160%You say, “Speaking of which though, a couple of things are happening this week. One, Captain Dubois is leaving us on Thursday which means we need a new instructor, two, we’ve got the play, three… I think there’s a third thing but I can’t remember what it was.”“That’s reassuring,” says Lisa. “But anyway, I’ve actually done some digging on some new instructors.”You blink. “Oh? Have you?”Lisa nods. “Yeah. Want to take a look at the options?”> WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE OPTIONS?> Y/N> Other
>>30082478Luckily Walter Christie is new to the whole Tankery thing as we are, so it might give us some breathing room. >>30082490Eh, depending on how the next couple of weeks go not really, its like 20 plus k so it's out of our pricerange for now
>>30082490Actually, the Theater Tech girls come with the end of the play doesn't it?Well there's a brand spanking new crew for either the Sherman or Panzer IV right there.
>>30082490We're going to put a newer crew into our Panzer IV.
>>30082490*reacquaintedFuckin' spellcheck.>>30082509The play should take care of itself with Octavia taking lead at this point. We might need to help Aviation Studies.>>30082525> Y
>>30082520Are you kidding me? The Firefly is absolutely amazing.It's only short of the Big Cats on our team in utility.
>>30082527>Luckily Walter Christie is new to the whole Tankery thing as we are,They already took part in the unlimited tankery bullshit, that's more than we can claim.Plus, who knows what devious plans their sick brains can think up.
>>30082525>YAnd is the third thing that situation between the Animation Club and the Otakus?
>>30082520Don't tell me you think the Sherman is a bad tank>>30082536I thought we let them choose their tanks, but considering the choices between the Panzer 4, the Chi-ha, and the Helllcat.The Panzer 4 is the obvious choice
>>30082578Poles are getting the Hellcat.
>>30082525Schteel, I have to ask : do a crew number affect how well it's using its tank? Like putting a 3 girl crew into the Hellcat will lower its efficiency?Also,>Y
>>30082607The Poles are not a 3 girl team.
Is the Walter Christie match capped at 10 tanks per team like the first round? This could be important to know now while we're figuring out what to do.Also, are we locking into a general hammer and anvil strategy at this point?>>30082527Guy, they're incredible tankers, they just have a silly lineup.
>>30082525>YPls no Yankee this time
>>30082607Historically, commanders were definitely overworked when they had to juggle gunning, loading, and commanding. Imagine being in the T-70 and your only other crewman is the driver.So yeah, things might get a bit inefficient.
>>30082601I'm saying what's available right now if nothing changes. We still have a few days if we get crews or not
>>30082628Speaking of people who stole rightful German clay, are there any other nationality based student associations? Might wanna try recruiting there
>>30082652We're better off asking the Poles today, the sooner they could get acquainted with the Hellcat, the better. Handling its speed would definitely be a challenge, even for a team as zany as the Poles.
>>30082693Sure, if they want the tank though it's better to ask the entire team in general if they want to switch tanks after the first match seeing we got two perfectly good tanks
>>30082718That would become a mess pretty quickly.
>>30082778What if multiple wanted the same tank? Or if some teams try to go for a tank we think is not suited for them? We know that we're reserving the Rifle team the T-34, but they don't know that and at this point they'll jump on any chance to get a new tank.
>>30082802Then we settle this diplomatically.
>>30082845Or we avoid the whole mess in the first place and ask individual teams. We will very quickly lose control on how our lineup turns out if we go like this, we're head of the Tankery Club, doing something like this is hardly erroneous.
>>30082870And if they say no?Also most of them should be fine with their tanks.
>>30082935Then we ask another team.It's seriously not that hard. There's no reason why we should put the tanks up as some sort of arbitrary lottery instead of best optimizing them for our team.

Speaking of which, how are you doing with the animation club?”Hanna tilts her head from side to side. “Oh, Anime Club’s stopping us from getting our regular pizza deliveries and are threatening to have our building ‘cursed’ or some shit.

>>30082984The correct answer is Ekins

>>30085604We're not talking about taking information from WoT, we're talking about how you think.
>>30085620This isn't comparing an early war light tank to a late war one, you are comparing tanks that fill completely different niches
>>30085620No, it's not. Get out of here, WoT.>>30085607>N
>>30085604It's different tank doctrine dumbass! The silhouette is a higher and it's different then a the stuart.
>>30085630I'm thinking we don't need cost-effectiveness, but we need to be effective on a PER TANK BASIS, the Hellcat is versatile enough to perform multiple roles, which is why I advocate it over the Stuart.
>>30085535Oh my god, I'm saying more CP to be used in fucking MATCHES, not covering up our fuck-ups.It's too late now anyway. It's not like this would have fucked us for the rest of the quest, but it's still a fucking annoyance that people aren't thinking ahead.
>>30085607> Sidescraper – Cost to learn: 5 CP>Angle your hull around the corner of some obstacle, obscuring half your tank and exposing your well-angled thickened front to the enemy.It will be more useful than the hook.
>>30085661>the Hellcat is versatile enough to perform multiple rolesWe have enough tanks that can ambush and destroy tanks, what we severely lack now are scouts
>>30085659Yes, the silhouette is slighty higher! Whoop de do, except this isn't relevant when you're shooting at each other over distances averaging a kilometer.
>>30085665We have more crews coming, we that thinking ahead.
>>30085678It's completely useless genius, every semi-competent tank crew will just shoot through the obstacle

I don't want Schteel to feel forced to make another thread.>>30085607> N> Combat Theory>>30085665CP is cheap, dumbass. We can get it to spend it, and we can accumulate an assload so is doesn't even matter come time for the match.
>>30085607Hmm... are there any other teams capable of doing Miho's Hook, I wonder?Might learn it just to know how to counter it, but not today.>N
>>30085661Oh hey. Finally someone that says something that makes somewhat sense.A "useless" tank is a better scout though. We just poked out our eyes to gain another hand.
>>30085696>>30085678Yeah, same-fagging again.Nice
>>30085690So why not put one of them in the fucking hellcat?At the very least we don't lose CP and don't lose morale.>>30085709Do you not realize how much we burn through each match?
>>30085687But it's freaking tank doctrine that are different.People here favor it because durrr bigger gun.Should have let the Girl Scouts had the freaking Hellcat....
>>30085684We don't tend to use scouts anyways, what we generally do is find a chokepoint/ point of interest and try to punk them there.I'm not saying that it's a good strategy, it's not, but it's how we tend to play. What I think we need to do is get rid of the Churchill, it's way too damned slow.Plus, we have more teams coming in soon, we can use them as scouts.
>>30085704Alright, I'm now convinced that you are trolling.Literately no one can be this fucking retarded
>>30085723That doesn't really make any sense, since a useless tank would be unable to perform as many roles as a Hellcat can. Per tank basis means the best tanks we can get for every slot.
>>30085726I meant the obstacles. We didn't get that move in the first place because whoever shooting at us can just shoot through the obstacles we're hiding behind.
>>30085747That was what i was advocating. Manuevers are getting more expensive, but they try and spend it on this.I thought our crews opinion mattered.
>>30085719Probably Oorai. You know, the school that invented it?

All three are instrumental in the good coordination of a Tankery Team. Sort of similar to how you’d see it in the military.”She begins lecturing on the three Cs, and everyone begins attentively taking notes.> Take a Break> Combat Theory> Gunnery Practice> Maneuvering Practice> Other
>>30085821>Not as good as the Stuart though.It's a lot faster and only somewhat bigger than the Stuart, I disagree.>It doesn't make sense to you, WoT, but to anyone else. You don't want your tank destroyers shot at. They can't defend themselves.Neither can lights.
>>30085843> Combat Theory
>>30085792But they never had a problem with their tank. Rifle team had problems they needed a replacement tank.but we completely went and picked Polish team because everyone things Hellcat can supposedly) work as a scout though it is a tank destroyer
>>30085843>Command, Control, CommunicationsSchteel you fuck
>>30085843Wait a second, when Dubois leaves, do we lose the opportunity to get Miho’s Hook?> Combat Theory
If we do something that drops morale, reverse it with CP, then undo the action, is the morale and CP refunded?
>>30085843> Maneuvering Practice>>30085874Damn it, I should have realized instantly.
>>30085843>Maneuvering PracticeTine to get the Poles used to their new tank.

>>30085857>Neither can lightsHahahaha. Get out.
>>30085894No.Hence my point that the move is a dopey near-sighted move
>>30085843>> Combat TheoryHere's an idea.Why can't we just let them 'try' the Hellcat see if they like it?If they liked it, we let them keep it, if they don't like it, we leave them alone?
>>30085874How long until one of our girls ends up going to Dubai?
>>30085781As did I.Apparently not. Apparently shiny new guns are much better than managing a team.
>>30085937Yes, this is an idea that could help.
>>30085961>I never meant to hurt anyone>No one ever does, Pool
>>30085937Too late. It's already fucked up.
>>30085843> Combat Theory>>30085937Have them test drive the Hellcat instead of forcing them is a good idea.How about we use that as a standard instead of forcing crews off of their tanks.That way we don't suffer morale loss and people who think they will do better in those tanks will be satisfied if they like it.
>>30086007We can keep that as a standard for crews. Instead of doing Morale loss reverse every single time we think they can do better in a new tank
>>30086007If anything we can just change it back if they don't like it.
>>30085843> Combat Theory>>30085906And how exactly do they defend themselves differently from lights? Do enlighten this poor stupid anon..
>>30086059Should we take a poll on this?>Y
> Combat TheoryYou find yourself pushing against Luciano, her pushing against you in return. The both of you growl and bare your teeth, trying to make the other budge.Dubois says, “This is essentially what happens when you try to ram a tank of comparable standards. Now mind you, ramming has its uses but for different kinds of people. For heavy tanks, it’ll be for saving ammo. For light tanks, it’ll be for desperation.”The class begin taking bets on who’ll give out first, you or Luciano.Luciano says, “I ain’t gonna budge!”You respond, “Neither am I!”Dubois states, “A new challenger appears!” The both of you have no time to be surprised when Wendy comes out of nowhere and knocks you both flat on the ground. Dubois says, “In this situation, Wendy was a tank who decided to capitalize on the situation.”You sigh.

>>30086134> Maneuvering PracticeI love how after people bitched about waiting CP, they just go and make the reason they used it for naught in the first place.

>>30086134>Take a breakCheck on our muscles.
>>30086134> Take a Break
I don't like this "Have them test drive!" thing. It's basically asking Schteel to decide for us, keeping in mind that he won't give us the best solution/advice on purpose.>>30086134> Take a Break
>>30086168Doesn't help in defending itself. Just makes it throw a track faster.
>>30086168I'm not even talking about fucking Polish team anymore, that's fucking done.I'm talking about how we'll handle changing crews to tanks from now on, because I don't want to have this everytime we change tanks because this shit will happen again. So for your fuck's sake shut the fuck up!
>>30086194Then how does being heavy factor into this at all?No seriously, your logic has completely escaped me.
>>30086217>So for your fuck's sake shut the fuck up!Real convincing there man. Protip, if you want to convince people, lay it out in a more reasonable manner instead of acting I've dickpunched you.
>>30086232That's because you have no clue about tanks.>>30086262How about you just leave already? Neither side of the discussion can stand you.
>>30086280>That's because you have no clue about tanks.Then perhaps you can explain outside of vague insults?>How about you just leave already? Neither side of the discussion can stand you.How about no?
>>30086134> Gunnery Practice
>>30086194Then please explain, specifically and with detail, why the Hellcat is so much worse at defending itself then the Stuart. You're being too vague.>>30086280>That's because you have no clue about tanks.And some people wonder why this all exploded. Nobody explains their reasoning. You can't convince people one way or another if you just say "I'm right and you're wrong, stupid, get out.">>30086217I think the only way to avoid this sort of argument typically reserved for waifu wars is to let them play out and have the playerbase fragment. Having crews test drive is essentially letting Schteel decide for us.
Let's just get the Otakus and put them in the Stuart.Two birds one stone
>>30086262because I'm trying to think of something that will be somewhat reasonable but I get fucking place withDurrr, Polish team should keep the Stuart.I was thinking of something that having this shitstorm be somewhat avoided! Sure I wanted Polish Team to not change considering they didn't need nor want to. But seeing this arguing I was trying to think of something that this can be avoided. for both sides

>>30086429On the other hand you're asking German to solve all of our problems for us, now this has been a complete shitstorm, I agree, but the entire point of quests are about giving the players agency.
>>30086446> Talk with your Crew
>>30086429Exactly, he has to write what the characters think. And what the characters think isn't always what's best for them. Asking Schteel to tell us twice what unreliable characters think won't help anything.>>30086446> Talk to a Crew (Bearcat)
>>30086446>Talk with your crew
>>30086462At what price? This is going to happen again several times over and I rather put the crew's feeling over supposedly what's better and what's not.if the crews feel it performs better then we give it to them.Rifle team has proven time and time again that they didn't like the Chi-ha but Polish team is content with their Stuart since it was reliable. They had opinions on tanks,
>>30086446> Talk to a Crew (Bearcat)Oh that's right, we need to talk to them about the demonstration don't we?
>>30086446>> Talk to a Crew (Specify)TigrisLet's schedule that loading challenge with Wendy.
>>30086446>> Talk to a Crew (Specify)Bearclaw.>>30086500So you want to ask Polish team after practice and see if they like the hellcat?
>>30086446>Talk with the TeacherPrepare for farewells and keeping in contract.Handshake or hugs?
>>30086500But unreliable, ignorant and frankly retarded anon is better.
>>30086521Except the crew will be emotionally biased towards the tank they've been riding with longer. Schteel practically told us that point-blank when he named the tanks. Notice how the Poles' arguments for keeping the Stuart are based on their experiences with it rather than a more objective viewpoint? If we leave it at that, they're always going to choose their old tank.
>>30086446>> Talk to a Crew (Bearcat)
>>30086551It's our quest, fagg-o, and losing's a possibility. If you want votes to swing in your direction, present formal informed arguments to back them up. Be the clever anon, don't give in to cynicism. Don't rely on someone else to justify what you think.
>>30086567The stuart being reliable was objective?If their manning a tank the ones using it will have the better opinion.Rifle team is a good example, they tried the Chi-ha The Su-152, and the Bt-42, all tank they had manned and voiced their complaints.Polish team could do the same whether or not they thought it was the better choice
> Talk to a Crew (Team Bearcat)“Hey Marinaaaaaaaaa…” you stop yourself as you look at all the Aviation Studies Club members. They look positively HORRIBLE. “… you look terrible.”Marina rubs her eyes a bit. “We were up all night trying to figure out how to restore the planes. We’d need at least a couple of months just to get the Hs-129 together, not to mention the Hurricane.”Lidya nods. “That’s right. But I’m sure we can do it, can’t we?”“I don’t think we can,” says Katya.Marina yawns a bit. “Ugh… anyway. Glad to see you checking in on us though, Gertrude. You’ve done a lot with us.”You shrug. “I’m just making sure everyone’s right as rain. If you girls need help, just call.”Katya says, “We need help.”“Okay, not now, we’re in the middle of practice.”Marina says, “We need funds, we need manpower, we need a lot more time.”You nod. “I’ll see what I can do later.”Dubois says, “Alright girls, let’s get back to it.”> Gunnery Practice> Maneuvering Practice> Other
>>30086689> Maneuvering Practice
>>30086633>The stuart being reliable was objective?That was literally the most objective thing they said about it, and I don't see how the Hellcat will be different in that regard given the reputation for reliability for american tanks.>If their manning a tank the ones using it will have the better opinion.Opinion, emotionally tainted opinion at that. Again, they will always be biased towards the tank they've been with for longer.>Rifle team is a good example, they tried the Chi-ha The Su-152, and the Bt-42, all tank they had manned and voiced their complaints.Did you see them name it? They don't like the tank they've had because all of them were bad (except the SU-76, which was sent away) and had no reason to like in the first place. The Rifles are not a good example because it's a matter of going with a better tank if they're already emotionally attached to their previous one, not going with a better tank if they already hate their current tank.>Polish team could do the same whether or not they thought it was the better choiceNo they can't, their situation was not the same as Rifle team's.
>>30086689“We need funds, we need manpower, we need a lot more time.”This is why saving Money was a good idea.> Maneuvering PracticeSee if the Hellcat arguement was worth something
>>30086747Saving money is always good.
>>30086743Also, if you want to continue this argument, I'm afraid we'll have to do it later. I've got RL matters to attend to.
>>30086689> Maneuvering Practicewe might have to gang press the navel students into providing man power.
> Maneuvering PracticeThe tanks have lined up at one end of the field. The Girl Scouts had a bit of trouble getting out of the warehouse in the first place, but once things were settled out, they managed to get to the field in good time, around ten minutes late.Of course, they weren’t the only team with issues.The Hellcat crashes into the back of the Panther. Luciano shouts, “Hey, watch it you retards!”George responds with, “This thing accelerates like a motherfucker!” The M18 nimbly backs up, then crashes right into the Panther again. “Okay, I am just turned right upside down here.”Luciano shouts, “If you don’t stop ramming into my tank, I’m going to ram into you. And I’ll only need to do it ONCE.”The M18 Hellcat turns right then barrels down the field and into the lone tree that nobody ever hits because it was a lone tree.Janek says, “We’re having some issues.”You say, “I can see that.”George says, “This thing’s a lot more sensitive than Szarik!”You sigh. Time to get on with maneuvering practice anyway. You run the exercises which consist of a lap around the field, then a coordinated close into a wedge formation, then into column formation, then into a staggered line.And all throughout, the Girl Scouts continuously shift into reverse or the Poles crash into something.Could be worse.> Take a Break> Gunnery Practice> Other
>>30086876Sure....but I still think Polish team opinion matters, if they can feel the difference that the Hellcat is better then good for everyone. Also the Su-76 was a casemate, it's design flaws are kind of obvious considering we're not like Kursk in which they have a standard plann for those
Don't you tards even start. They'll learn this tank like they did the Stuart.>>30086926> Gunnery Practice
>>30086926> Gunnery PracticeNot surprising that they'll be unfamiliar with it.
>>30086926> Gunnery PracticeSo it's more sensitive then the Stuart. other then some adjustment, not that much of a problem.
>>30086935One last reply on phone. Sorry, I meant the fact that the su was turned into the t-34.
>>30086957I was supporting the stuart but I won't start up something just because it's obvious they need some adjustment
>>30086926> Gunnery PracticeThe fact that they are completely unfamiliar with the controls should be of absolutely no surprise to anyway. Don't bring up the argument again.
>>30087011I just said I agreed, they need some adjustment to the controls.
>>30086926> Gunnery Practice
> Gunnery Practice“And firing!”The 76mm booms, sending its HVAP round flying across the field and into the target. You check the target through your periscope. It just hit right below the bullseye. Everyone else splashes short or overshoots, with the exception of the Aces’ King Tiger. Michelle actually said this to you before Gunnery Practice, “The 88 is well-known for its long range and its flat trajectory.”Man, kinda makes you wish you could stick an 88 in this Sherman.What the fuck are you thinking?Actually, you check the Girl Scouts targets, you see that their side hasn’t fired yet. You ask over the radio, “Juliette, something wrong?”Juliette says, “How do we fire our gun?”You say, “Okay, in the gunner’s position. Where you uh…” Okay, you don’t actually know how to fire the gun from the Panzer IV, all tanks are pretty different. “Kate, take care of it.”The 76mm gun on the Hellcat fires immediately after that, splashing halfway from the target.“I can’t hit anything with this!” says Janek.You sigh. It’s like their first days all over again.With that, practice is over. All the tanks are promptly returned to the warehouse. The Poles actually have some difficulty getting in though, due to the rather incredible acceleration, but they manage to get it parked.You hang around the building.

What more do we need to do for the Sewing Club to finish their quest? I guess we should talk to them.

Funny thing if we finish their quest before the Freshmen.Gosh, I hope we can finally get to the Freshmen soon. They've stuck with us the longest it feels like.

>>30088298Oh shit, did we tell everyone about our match with Saunders this weekend?We should really do that.
>>30088298If they make the E-100 the flag tank there's nothing we can do against it.
>>30088298>>30088362My sides are in orbit.
>>30088298>N>Eat out, you can't cook, arms are too sore
> YYou nod. “Sure, Kitten.” You stand up and then get your coat on. “Alright everyone. Just to let you all know. We may have a match with Saunders this coming Friday, but it’s not related to the tournament. So nobody worry, it’s all friendly friendly. Okay?”Everyone shrugs and says yeah sure. That’s as good as its gonna get.You say bye to your staff who’ve elected to stay, then move on out of the Tankery HQ and towards your dorms. You rub your arms a bit. They’re actually quite sore. That’s the going to be last time you try to hold a 152mm shell for almost ten minutes.Kitten says, “Feeling okay?”You nod. “Of course, Kitten.”She giggles. “Just saying, it looked like Wendy had you beat.”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>30088298>Yyou just love to name those tanks don't you schteel?
>>30088423Lure it to rough ground or just shoot up the road, it didn't really get far in their last match, unless of course they play it smart and make it sit still.>>30088463>BoastYou need to learn proper technique
>>30088463> NeutralAce. Loader.
>>30088463> PoliteYep.I'd think they'd be more enthused, what with everyone's really high morale.
So how dangerous are the anti-aircraft tanks to us?>>30088463> Neutral
>>30088463>BoastPff, I was just about to get my second wind.
>>30088539The Skink is going to be ridiculous to anyone with light armour (like the Hellcat/Stuart)I did a bit of reading on it after we all got it in the Canadian Tanks Quest. Good Tank.
>>30088573You think there will be detrimental effects to morale? The shells might not penetrate our heavier tanks but having hundreds of shells blasted at you won't be fun.
Page 9 Schteel. You oughta archive.>>30088573Just from Wiki skimming, I thought the kugelblitz to be the more dangerous tank of the pair.
>>30088621Oh yeah definitely. It has the added advantage of pinning down a tank like 'buttoning' from CoH.It would not surprise me if that was a tactical maneuver for the tank, in fact.>>30088623I don't have much experience with the Kugelblitz, so I will take your word for it.
>>30088070I think giving them the M18 might have backfired considering how close the next match is, and we made them just as inexperienced as the Girl Scouts
> BoastYou say, “Horseshit. I could’ve beaten her even if she didn’t have to work today.” You shrug. “Besides, my arms feel better than ever!”Kitten gently punches your arm, and you yelp in pain, flinching. “Oh, I’m sorry,” says Kitten. You pout at her, grumbling. “Oh, don’t give me that. You were about to lose.”“It’s not about losing, Kitten, it’s about endurance!”“That’s exactly what you were about to lose.”You say, “Hey! I could take you on even with my noodle arms!” You step behind her and bearhug her from behind, almost lifting her into the air and oh jesus your arms hurt but fuck too cute“Ah! Lemme go!” shouts Kitten, laughing.The two of you spin around as Kitten tries to break your hold, laughing all the way to the intersection. Then you stop.Because Fairless is right next to you, having come down from another end of the street. She wears her trenchcoat around her shoulders, arms free from the sleeves. A cigarette sits between her lips.

>>30088732Wasn't it on Saturday? Friday's the play and honestly we should move it.And if we do Rifle Team will use the Chi-ha since they are used to it and giving them a tank they had no experience piloting is stupid
> “This is exactly what it looks like.”You sigh. “This is exactly what it looks like, Bernadette.”Bernadette F. Fairless nods. “I can see that,” she says. “I assume you two just came from practice?” You nod. “How was it?”You say, “Productive. I moved a team from their old tank to a new one, they raised a bit of a fuss but I think they’ll get used to it.”“I see,” says Bernadette. “I was just headed home myself.” She looks over at Kitten, who immediately hides behind you. “Hi, Carol.”Kitten pokes her head, chuckling nervously. “H-Hi, Fairless.”Bernadette looks back at you, slightly adjusting her glasses. You flinch a bit as you realize she’s making EYE CONTACT WITH YOU. “Anyway, I needn’t keep you here. Have a nice day you two.”She walks past you, waving behind her.Kitten says, once she’s out of earshot, “Jesus she’s scary.”You shrug. “She’s nice when you get to know her.”With that, you both arrive back at your dorms.> Head to your Dorm> Head to your Dorm (Invite Kitten)> Head to Kitten’s Dorm> Other

Looking a bit at their lineup, if we're not night fighting, will the CDL's searchlight even factor? Can they blind our crews through their optics or reliably trick us into over/undershooting them with a tinted light?Also while wiki-skimming, I learned about the Bob Semple. Oh my sides.>>30088900> Head to your Dorm (Invite Kitten)We still need dinner. More stuff to cook with in our dorm.

> Head to your Dorm (Invite Kitten)You have Kitten take off your coat, and your blazer, and then undo your bra. Sweet relief. You lie back on the bed and groan as Kitten begins cooking your relatively simple dinner. “What are you making, my slave?”“Instant noodles with broth made of my piss, your highness.”“Excellent.”You turn over, cringing as you roll over your arm a bit. You wrap your arms around your 75mm APBCR plushie, relaxing.Anything you want to do?> Relax> Work/Study> Talk to Kitten (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>30089112> Work/StudyStudious Trudy.
>>30089112> Talk to Kitten (MY ARMS)
> Work/StudyYou barely pull your laptop out and then start browsing through your notes, your chest resting on the plushie AP round. It’s mostly a review of certain vocabularly that you need to know for a Quiz tomorrow. Then there’s also more notes for math for another quiz tomorrow. Boy, that’ll be fun.At least you’re studying. Kitten sets down a bowl of instant noodles next to you, which you start slurping up in great hunger.She sits down next to you, throwing off her blazer. “Boy, you’re really more studious now, Trudy.”You nod. “Indeed, Kitten. A good President is one who’s intelligent,” you say. You cringe a little as you have to move your arms to gesture to that.Kitten notices that however. “Want a massage?”> WANT A MASSAGE?> Y/N> Other
>>30089280>N!this is a trap people! stop this now!

>>30089280> Y>>30089322I realized Trudy has a poor diet.
> YYou nod. Kitten kneels on your back, your hips between her legs. “So, do you actually know how to massage my arms?” you ask.Kitten shrugs. “Eh, I’ll wing it. Go ahead and show your shoulders for me please.” You nod and then quickly unbutton the top few buttons of your shirt and then slink yourself slightly out of it, revealing your bare shoulders to Kitten. She starts pressing her fingers into OOOOHHH WOW THAT FEELS GOOD.You sigh in ecstasy. “Oh… goodness Kitten, that feels great!”Kitten blinks. “You think so?”“Yeah!” You whistle admirably. “I think you’ve got a career as a masseuse waiting for you!”Kitten scoffs. “Oh, wouldn’t dream of it, Trudy. Getting to massage muscular men and beautiful women for a living, that must be something else.” She says, “But, now that you say it though, I actually don’t really know what to do with my life after High School, you know?”You nod. “Yeah, I know.”“I mean… what is there for me to do?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>30089440>BoastWhatever you want, Kitten!
>>30089440> BoastHow about Housewife?
>>30089483But how will we support her?
>>30089501Certainly not by the arm, at this rate. Gotta get stronk!
> Boast“Kitten, there’s plenty for you to do,” You say. “Just your put mind to something that you want to do, and make a career out of it.”Kitten says, “And if that doesn’t work?”You tilt your head side to side, smiling. “I’ll take care of you for as long as I need to.”Kitten smiles. “D’aw… that’s nice of you, Trudy. But I’ll be 50 by the time I get a job.”“You say that as if it’s a bad thing.”Kitten leans forward, resting her head on your shoulder, and then rubbing her cheek against yours. “Love you, Trudy.”“Love you too, Kitten.”> END DAY
>>30089530Guys, I'm starting to think we might be gay

>>30089542 YA THINK? the damn /u/ boats are infesting this quest....
>>30089542Okay, I laughed.>>30089545Good thread Schteel, kind of soured by the big argument but it was still really fun despite. Thank you for running and have a good night!
>>30089545Thanks for running!And man, I'm still amazed at the amount of vitriol that can get thrown around for something like tank purchases/allocation. Guess once you give /tg/ an IC excuse to powergame...
>>30089542>GERTRUDE POOL: MC. The Sophomore Class President from D.C. and current head of the Tankery Program. A bit inconsistent, brash, and slightly gay, but pretty nice and determined.>slightly gay
>>30089581Do we get to roleplay an internal struggle with our sexuality?
>>30089542Gay implies that we don't like guys, which was blatantly contradicted by both Gertrude and kitten's reactions upon seeing newly beefy Eugene. But Bi? Totally.
>>30089545Also Schteel, what's up with the outro music? I don't really get it.>>30089565>powergameSorry for wanting to get through the quest. I find management to be fun, but I guess making good choices gets in the way of yours.
>>30089581This is getting slightly annoying.....I wonder if German is giving us some sort of meter in which if we go over we will be gay...
>>30089633I tend to just throw in outro music depending on what's catching my fancy at the time.Sacred harp a best at the moment.
So guys, it has occurred to me that we'll be most likely getting a new crew (Theater Tech) along with our T-34 when we're finally finished with that play on the 18th.To that end, I propose we finally fix up that Sherman to the A4 model and get it waiting for them. I also think we should push back the match with Kay a couple of days, just so the crews (both Rifles and Theater Tech) can get used to their new rides. Does anyone oppose this?
>>30089633We kind of turned a experienced crew into a semi-experienced crew, that sure is power gaming alrightI fear for the other crews now.Also Saunders
