However, your sister Holly is also in the same tournament, in the 1v1 bracket. After winning your semifinal match, you decided to go check in how Holly is doing.However, to your surprise, you find that you might possibly know who your opponent is. Then again, a lot of people liked using red zakus. Char was a pretty popular character after all."Jack? Is something wrong?" Holly asks.>Warn her that her opponent is probably going to be the toughest opponent she's faced yet.>Don't worry her unnecessarily. You don't have any proof, anyways.>Other
>>32169328>>OtherWe don't know it's her but tell her to be careful since it's a red zaku and does are always trouble
>>32169328>>Warn her that her opponent is probably going to be the toughest opponent she's faced yet.Dispence as much advice and guidance as we can on what we know or assume. Give disclaimer that this is assumptions.
>>32169328>>Warn her that her opponent is probably going to be the toughest opponent she's faced yet."You're probably gonna lose. But I think you'd already expecr that so go out there and have fun."
>>32169328>OtherJust tell her to go out there and have fun. Doesn't matter if she wins or loses here. Really this her first tournament, there's no need to be 'your going lose' or 'your going to have a hard fight.' Every fight has chance of winning or losing, being tough or easy. It doesn't matter at the end. What matters if Lil'sis had fun or not.
>>32169328>Other"Red Zaku. That's always trouble. But don't worry. Defeating it... that's about to become a family tradition. Either way, have fun."
>>32169328>OtherWish her luck. Sure, red Zaku's tend to be fast as hell (though I'd assume there are a few out there that play against type just to trip people up), but so is the Super Ball. Just go in there, battle as best you can, and have fun. It's probably not going to be some unstoppable super unit.Speaking of unstoppable super units, did anyone catch the stream of Unicorn Episode 7 that was posted on /m/? Jesus, that final power up. I really hope the Unicorn in the school club that we'll someday have to face doesn't have all those psychoframe tricks. I really hope so.
>>32169328>>Other"Eh, Red Zaku always a bad news. Just careful there and have fun. May Amada with you">>32169705How long until we can get sub?
>>32169705Don't worry, we'll add that anti-newtype for our GM.Maybe add some panzerfaust for our Rb-79s wince they can carry three without taking a space.
>>32169729Depends on how much money we get from the tournament and I rather try to upgrade our GM and Balls even more, the battle with the mobile armor, made me want to have something stronger to deal with it, Maybe a Panzerfaust or Bazooka
Kinda wish we had a Gouf, just so that we could NO ZAKU.That said, since everyone has a big hard-on for grunt suits, what about the Gundam Mk. II, I means it's pretty much the Grunt Gundam in Zeta
>>32169328"You want to be careful around this one." You warn rather vaguely. "Char clones are almost never good news.""Yeah, yeah, I've seen all the replays of them." Holly rolls her eyes. "It'll be fine.""Ladies and gentlemen, the match is about the start." The referee announces. "I would like to ask non-participants to please back away from the battle table."You catch the stinkeye from the referee and quickly comply with his orders, stepping back to put space between yourself and Holly. BEGINNING PLAVSKY PARTICLE DISPERSALFIELD: COLONYThe field materializes, generating one of those large, iconic cylindrical colony structures. Both the Zaku and Holly's Ball are deployed on the exterior, in the vacuum of space. Immediately, Holly's Ball jets off into space away from the colony and starts spitting beam rifle fire at the Zaku. Good call.. The Ball had the advantage in open space. However, the Zaku pilot, as you suspected, didn't seem to care. It's own boosters flared as it launched into space after the Ball, responding with a torrent of automatic fire from its machine gun. While Holly was doing a good job of dodging the shots, all the extra movement was hurting her accuracy, too. However, she was still doing a decent job of keeping one step ahead of the Zaku, but only barely. It was starting to become clear that the other fighter was way more experienced than Holly, and could accurately predict her moves, responding in a way where it could gain some ground. Every turn and quick change of direction, and the Zaku edged ever closer."THE 3v3 FINALS WILL BEGIN IN TEN MINUTES. ALL FINALISTS ARE TO REPORT TO TABLE SIXTEEN." You hear the intercom buzz.Crap.>You still got ten minutes. Let's see how this plays out.>You better get going. You don't want to risk getting disqualified.>Other
>>32169747Panzerfausts mean nothing. The Unicorn can tank colony lasers now. And it doesn't even need weapons, it just disintegrates its targets with a wave of its hand. Plus the NT-D has expanded to the point it can control any machine, not just funnels. Straight up shuts down an entire fleet. It's ridiculous. And all Full Frontal gets to take it on with is a bunch of beam cannon arms and an (admittedly totally badass) disruption field that causes E-Caps to detonate.
>>32169789Why not the Gundam Ground type, we can merge parts of it into the GM, or upgrade it into a GMII since the parts are similar.
>>32169785I asking about Unicorn 7 sub (insert smiley here).>>32169814>>You still got ten minutes. Let's see how this plays out.ten minutes, mark it.
>>32169747>anti-newtypeDoesn't the EXAM system fuck with Newtypes due to having part of a Newtypes thought patterns in it or something?>>32169705I thought the base form of Unicorn looked the coolest, honestly, that all-white look and the lack of a v-fin really set it apart, then it just goes Super Saiyan and dives right back into cliche-ness.
>>32169814>You better get going. You don't want to risk getting disqualified.Holly will understand. Wish her luck and then be on our way. As for the possibility of Charlotte...well, it's not like we'd have time to catch up with her anyway. We can watch a replay of the match later if we want to analyze her style and compare it to the footage online.
>>32169814>You better get going. You don't want to risk getting disqualified.>>32169828Should mess it up even a bit though. And I'm recommending it since a Mobile Suit can carry three without taking a space so it will add more firepower for the Ball
>>32169814>You better get going. You don't want to risk getting disqualified.As much as I would like to stay. We got our own thing we need to be doing.
>>32169836How about RGM-79V GM night seeker? http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/RGM-79V_GM_Night_SeekerOr we can use... Windam. (runs)
>>32169836>>32169883If we upgrade, I ant some Jesta parts. Jesta, oh Jesta. My favorite MS, the greatest of all mook suits.
>>32169814>You still got ten minutes. Let's see how this plays out.
>>32169903Hey, come back! The Windam's okay. Just because it's from a terrible series doesn't mean we can't like it. It's a pretty cool design. And considering that we never see the Windam get a single kill on-screen it would fit our "giving under-appreciated grunt units some love" schtick, too.
>>32169903windam is a cool in my book bro. fucking based wizard system
>>32169814>You better get going. You don't want to risk getting disqualified.
>>32169966also exploding throwing knifes!
How about we, if we do end up upgrading for a mid-season deal, pick a Gunpla that's meant to symbolize what we and our team stand for in Gunpla Battle? Fun, enjoyment of Gundam and what that entails, and so on.We go old-school. We go RX-78-2. Maybe Forever Gundam, or Nu Gundam with the funnels stripped off to make it look more like RX-78-2 while still retaining the Psychoframe. Plus, it plays nicely into the destined rivalry schtick.
>>32170019That too. Any design featuring exploding rocket-propelled throwing knives is a fun one.
>>32169814>>You better get going. You don't want to risk getting disqualified.Let's not get killed by our curiosity.
So what have we generally agreed on for a 'mid-season upgrade'?
>>32169814>You still got ten minutes. Let's see how this plays out.Stick around. I've got a good feeling about this.
>>32170108Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I, however, am in favor of a Jesta. Maybe a Jesta Juggler?
>>32170108We haven't really agreed to anything.We toss around like 40 different kits and that's about as far as it goes.
>>32170108Nothing. Everyone wants something from something else. Getting /tg/ to agree on anything well before the time of picking is a pointless task.
>>32170066I say we go with the Zeta Gundam hell we could try something crazy with it
>>32170108I imagine Mac getting an upgrade called the Gundam Maxter 'Second Amendment' which is more gun than Mobile Suit, and the gag is that it creates a shitstorm whenever it's on field.
>>32170150BAN MS ASSAULT MAGS!
>>32170066I support using something in line of RX-78-2 or looksalike.Maybe O gundam can also be considered.The point is we better make some out-of-box modification like Star Build Strike for our mid-season upgrade.
>>32170149Well, Zeta was called "a machine that channels the power of the soul" or something to that effect by Kamille, just before the Biosensor went into overrage mode. That could work. I'm still partial to something that actually embodies the whole concept of "Gundam", though. Give them a reminder what a real battle, real fun is like.
>>32170168LOOK AT THAT BABY KILLER HIGH-CAPACITY ASSAULT MACHINE GUN! THINK OF CHILDREN!!!-----Anyone here already read Zeon no Saiko manga?
>>32170066I want to upgrade the GM into maybe a GMII or GMIII if possible.I want to keep the Juggler system though
Why not a Thunderbolt?Also we need to be figuring out how to beat our teammates in the finals.
>>32170168is that a fucking 9mm for a Mobile suit.....
>>32170150>>32170168>>32170212And the upgraded shield has a metal cast of the actual Second Amendment with writing.
I'd rather not get the Zeta. Hell, I'd rather not get any Gundams, period.
>>32170226I still say Jesta Juggler.
>>32170226I say more suits the better>>32170233YEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!
>>32170233>Balls instead of Shields Mein Gott
>>32170234do you understand how dumb that sounds
>>32170263NO! NO! NO!
>>32170252Interesting but that seems to be late upgrade, we still need to upgrade our GM into the II or III model, then the Jeagan before anything but again only if possible
>>32170263>spindly Servo arms with balls? I don't see that as working out to well.
>>32169814Damn, and you really wanted to stay and see the fight, too. However, you didn't really want to risk getting your team disqualified over some petty personal matters. You silently slip away from the battle. Holly would understand."Ah, I see you're here." Karen nods as you arrive."Did I miss anything?" You ask."Not much. Looks like our fellow opponents haven't quite arrived yet.""You know, guys, I think we should try using some of this time to plan." Amy points out.Hm, she was right. Unlike your previous opponents, you knew exactly what Lucina, Mac, and Jake's Gunpla were capable of. But, the problem was they also knew what your Gunpla were capable of as well."Let's see, we did have several plans lined up, didn't we?" Karen asks."Yeah." You nod.>FINAL DESTINATION: You handle Jake, Amy handles Mac, and Karen handles Lucina separately.>BLITZ: Try to take out Jake first, then focus on Mac and Lucina. >DANGER CLOSE: Engage in close combat with Mac and Lucina, which will largely neutralize Jake's firepower.>Other
>>32170263I see your spirit become weighted down by Balls. Balls should be symbol of making the impossible possible, not some object of cult.
>>32170317This so much
>>32170314>FINAL DESTINATION: You handle Jake, Amy handles Mac, and Karen handles Lucina separately.
>>32170314>DANGER CLOSE: Engage in close combat with Mac and Lucina, which will largely neutralize Jake's firepower.Use their own teammates as shields!>>32170317You're right, we should upgrade the Balls first!
>>32170314>BLITZ: Try to take out Jake first, then focus on Mac and Lucina. Kill the guntank
>>32170314>DANGER CLOSE: Engage in close combat with Mac and Lucina, which will largely neutralize Jake's firepower.
>>32170314>BLITZ: Try to take out Jake first, then focus on Mac and Lucina. We need to get rid of those heavy guns. The Tusker has anti-air weapons, if we don't get rid of it the Balls will be useless.
>>32170314>>FINAL DESTINATION: You handle Jake, Amy handles Mac, and Karen handles Lucina separately.
Okay, I've been looking up MSs, and I came upon this.What the hell...
>>32170314>DANGER CLOSE: Engage in close combat with Mac and Lucina, which will largely neutralize Jake's firepower.Unless Jake feels "who cares about danger close".>>32170362With gundam ZZ faceplate. And hyper mega cannon.
>>32170314If we can keep his teammates close that siege engine becomes worthless, but they'll be expecting that...>FINAL DESTINATION: You handle Jake, Amy handles Mac, and Karen handles Lucina separately.Divide and conquer. I doubt they'll see that coming since we've more or less built a support kit.>>32170233I ordered that, the amazing booster, battle arms, and a gouf custom last week as my first kits.My hype is astronomical but they haven't even shipped which is worrying because they're supposed to be here by early next week...Also shields are sex.
>>32170392The Heavyarms version is even better.
>>32170406>With gundam ZZ faceplate. And hyper mega cannon.I was thinking Turbo Boosters, but Hyper Mega Cannons work too...
>>32170392...First time seeing the Sandrock riding a Griffon. Looks awesome.>>32170425I know. All that Gun. Damn...
>>32170314>>DANGER CLOSE: Engage in close combat with Mac and Lucina, which will largely neutralize Jake's firepower.We can't rely on them to engage us one-on-one.
>>32170314>FINAL DESTINATION: You handle Jake, Amy handles Mac, and Karen handles Lucina separately.Mostly because I'm curious if Karen can down Lucina, or if she's just the designated team jobber.
>>32170431We should put the Hyper Mega Cannons in the Balls' eyes. Then we can have the deadly gaze of our Ball-or units.
>>32170460Probably will turn into a 20 minute slap(sword)fight.Which, frankly, is fine with me.
>>32170314>DANGER CLOSE: Engage in close combat with Mac and Lucina, which will largely neutralize Jake's firepower.I kinda want to see if Jake can put rounds in this close.
>>32170450HG kit when
>>32170453Huh. Makes me wonder if Jake has any plans to kitbash any Tragos parts into it to give it better mobility and maneuverability with a hovercraft equipment.http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/w/oz-07ms.htm
>>32170488Nice!I was thinking pulling a Mao and turning them into Beam vomiting flying skulls, but this works too...
>>32170585We can always have 'third' gunpla you know.....
>>32170609nope we need more BALLS for EVERYTHING
So if we win, we should give most of the money to the losers so they can git gud
>>32170625It's all going into the club fund anyway. Which is the advantage of the sub-teams being the ones in the final match: No matter what happens, we win. We win twice over, actually, since we get both first and second place.
>>32170646That space AK is doing it for me.
>>32170314"We'll stick close to Mac and Lucina. Jake's TUSKER has a lot of firepower, but he doesn't really have any precision weaponry. I doubt he'd be crazy enough to risk hurting his own teammates.""I was thinking that, too." Karen nods. "You'll have to be doubly careful, then. Your suit isn't equipped to handle close combat as ours are, and if you stray too far from the battle...""...I'll make myself a target. Yeah, I know." You nod. "I understand the risks."You then see your opponents and friends arrive, with drinks and food. Damn, you should have thought of that. Maybe after you win this. "Hey man, good luck." Mac says."I look forward to this battle." Lucina says politely."Same." You grin."Okay, now that all fighters are present, we will be beginning the 3v3 Finals!" The referee announces. "Fighters, place your GP Bases and gunpla!"The six of you set down your GP Bases and gunpla on the table, and it hums to life.BEGINNING PLAVSKY PARTICLE DISPERSALFIELD: FORESTThe moment the field materializes, you, Karen, and Amy jet forward, weaving back and forth through the trees. You were pretty lucky to get this field, since the trees would hide your position and make it harder for Jake to spot you. However, that didn't mean you still couldn't be taken out by a lucky shot."We should spread out to minimize damage in case they try to shell us." Karen says. "We can't afford to have the entire team taken out by a lucky shell.""But, won't that make us more vulnerable to Mac and Lucina?" Amy says worriedly.>We should split up.>We should stick together.>Other
>>32170674>>OtherStick together but keep some distance?
>>32170674>>OtherPANIC: Realize you don't have any idea what you are doing. That feel when you aren't a gundam fan and have no idea what is going on
>>32170674>Other>Loose formation. I know you guys are high schoolers but this is hardly high level concepts here.
>>32170674>OtherHave Amy do the gun-launch trick with one of our Balls, loft it high up so we can use it as a spotter. Move immediately afterwards, though, so they can't trace it's launch point back to us. Once scope out the terrain we can decide on tactics more effectively.
>>32170674>Five meter spread, no sound.Okay but really. We can spread out without being a thin line.
>>32170674>>We should split up.>>32170696>>32170722This seems good
>>32170717This is basic infantry tactics here.It's called not staying in grenade formation. Yous spread out enough to where one shot won't kill everyone but close enough to support.
>>32170764No, its the same as getting the ball killed. It's like shooting clay pigeons with a shotgun
>>32170729I'll second this.We'll need to all change direction immediately though to avoid them firing on our position.
>>32170824>>32170729Agreeing with that Anon about this idea being as waste of a ball. There's no need to get it killed this early in the game.
>>32170674>>32170722Do this, we have enhanced senors so we can detect Mac or Lucina when their close
>>32170845I just wonder how effective it is inside a forest though. Wouldn't it get a lot interference or what not.
>>32170828Didn't you hear about if any of our units stray off their easy pickings for the Guntank?Also we're in a forest area so no matter how high the Ball is, it won't work.Also we have enhanced senors so staying in a loose formation while using the sensor to detect an ambush or attack will be better
>>32170877It should work in the forest, why wouldn't it thats the reason we have it to pick up threats in a increased range.Only reason I don't see it working if the Mobile Suits the other team is using is using some sort of Chaff or Polasky Particles to disturb the sensors.
>>32170877Depends on the kind of sensors and the computer equipment that's modeled on the...model.Low level ground to ground or ground to air search radar have been notoriously prone to "clutter," from reflected rays bouncing off of..everything.But this is the ~future~, so I don't know how this applies.Additionally, could be a broad band of equipment. Thermal wouldn't penetrate that deep, and neither would ultrasound, but infrasonic might.I don't know how the TUSKER rolls, but I feel pretty confident in saying there's a probably a ton of sub 10-hertz frequencies coming off of it, and those things TRAVEL.We're talking like several miles worth of distance given sufficient power (which seems reasonable...it's a big boy).tl;dr: Maybe?
Rolled 15, 16 = 31>>32170674"We should spread out." You say. "Seems to be the safer option.""Agreed." Karen says. "Put some distance between each other, but try and maintain visual contact if at all possible. I don't want us getting separated.Karen and Amy move forward a bit while you fall behind a little. While the forest was great cover, it also meant you couldn't see very well, either. You try pinging your radar a couple of times, but the ground clutter is just too great. You'd have to get up above the trees to effectively use it, but that was a HUGE risk. >roll 1d20
>>32170962>>32170967Well well well.
>>32170962>>32170967nice going, anons.
>>32170959>You try pinging your radar a couple of times, but the ground clutter is just too great.Well that answered this; >>32170877
>>32170959Is jack using an AESA/PESA array or is there a tiny, adorable little radar dome on top of his Jimmy's head?
>>32170962For no particular reason whatsoever, you crane your head up into the sky, and you see something... odd. You activate your image enhancer to zoom in and your eyes widen when your realize what those are.Rockets. Lots of them.You guess that with no clear target, Jake just took the logical conclusion and decided to just blanket the entire damn area in ordnance."ROCKETS INCOMING!" You yell."I see them!" Karen says."That is a LOT." Amy whimpers.You quickly go through your options. You can try to boost above the trees to make it easier to dodge or intercept the incoming rockets, but that would be exactly what Jake wanted, to flush you out of cover. On the other hand, rockets were unguided and not very precise. If you hunker down, you might be able to weather it out.>Intercept>Dodge>Duck and Cover>Other
>>32171092>>Duck and CoverTime to hunker down.
>>32171092>>Duck and Cover
>>32171092>>Duck and CoverShould have dig the trench first eh.
>>32171092>Duck and CoverDon't move unless we our 100% sure that shit is going hit us.
>>32171092>Speed is life!Rockets are already in the air. If we move out of the danger zone, then we're no longer in the danger zone and, additionally, closer to the Bad Guys.
>>32170962Late, but that's just bitchin.
>>32171267Gotta love shark teeth.
Rolled 18, 18, 5, 2, 1, 18 = 62>>32171092"Shiiiiiiiiiiit!" You wince as you kneel down and rise your shield over yourself. Hopefully it would be enough to shield you.>roll 1d20
>>32171386Hurrah for passing!
>>32171386Yield to the shield
>>32171386FUCK YA !
>>32171386So did we block the shots or did the shots completely miss us by our outline?
You know, I don't get it. I mean, I DO get the grunt love, because come on, a lot of grunt designs in Gundam are sexy, but I don't get the whole grunt dick-riding.Once we beat the pants off of those Optimized Build Gunpla Club faggots, I'd like to see us expand beyond using Grunt suits. Don't get me wrong, I wanna get as much mileage out of the GM Juggler because it is effectively our Fenice, but we gotta switch things up now and then.
>>32171386Rockets land all around as explosions and shrapnel cause your entire gunpla to shudder. The rocket barrage couldn't have lasted more than a few seconds, but it felt like hours. Finally, the explosions begin to whittle away until finally, the entire field is silent once again. You have your gunpla stand up and you perform a quick system diagnostic. And... you're completely fine. Sure, your armor was scorched and singed and riddled with countless pits and dents from shrapnel, but it was otherwise cosmetic damage. "Karen, Amy, you guys all right?" You ask."Y-yeah." Amy stammers, still a bit shaken from the artillery barrage. "Just minor hull damage.""I'm afraid my Overflag didn't fare quite as well." Karen sighs. While her gunpla looked fine, you noticed the movements were slightly erratic and jerky. "I think some of my joints were damaged in that barrage."That was unfortunate, but there was nothing you could do about it now. However, you did have something to take from this. When you looked up, you managed to see the arc the rockets were taking, so you now had a rough idea of where Jake was. Even if he did reposition, there was little chance he'd be able to move far in a big heavy gunpla like his unless he went into Breacher mode.>Move to Jake's position. Mac and Lucina will for sure come to engage you.>Continue to hunt for Mac and Lucina. You might be able to get the drop on them.>Other
>>32171505I'm good with whatever. But honestly, I really hope that we do a fair bit of kitbashing and stuff. Using base chassis with modifications here and there is probably the surest and safest way to go, but it's not often that we get a chance to experiment with a wide range of model kits. It'd almost be a shame to not stretch the limits of Gunpla and see what wondrous and/or terrible creations that could be wrought.
>>32171505Gundams are boring and played out. It's a lazy and uncreative 'upgrade' to go to.
>>32171538>Move to Jake's position. Mac and Lucina will for sure come to engage you.we need to stop that shelling now
>>32171538>>Move to Jake's position. Mac and Lucina will for sure come to engage you.
>>32171538>Move to Jake's position. Mac and Lucina will for sure come to engage you.This is what we want.
>>32171538>Move to Jake's position. Mac and Lucina will for sure come to engage you.Let's close in.
>>32171538>Move to Jake's position. Mac and Lucina will for sure come to engage you.Stick to the plan.
>>32171572He said nothing about Gundams in particular...
I just want a transforming flying MS hell I would love one of those ORB Union (FUCK ORB) grunts
>>32171622Not the same Anon, but some people have been clamoring for some type of Gundam. Personally, I wouldn't want to 'upgrade' into one.
>>32171538>>Move to Jake's position. Mac and Lucina will for sure come to engage you.>>32171505I agree on gotta switch things up now and then... but IMO grunts suit provide more challenge for us to optimize them. Renato Brothers and Meijin basically use grunt suits and they come quite far.If we want to use Gundam, i vouch for OYW era gundam or RX-78.
>>32171656Agreed. Everyone's got a Gundam. Let's go with a Mecha of the Week, instead. There are plenty of cool weird designs throughout the Gundam franchise to play around with.
>>32171622I know, but what other non-grunt suits are there for us to get? The only things coming to mind or suits that use funnels like the Qubeley, or Mobile Armors.
>>32171646Murasme is the only thing orb got righthttp://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/seed-destiny/mvf-m11c.htm
>>32171674I still want a zeta....and paint up like solo wing pixehell add a fuck huge beam cannon for MA mode
>>32171572I never said anything about Gundams, genius. But seriously? You don't want to use Gundams because they're mainstream? Because they're "not creative" as an upgrade?Dude, we're a kid with imagination and creativity out the wazoo. We could take ANY sort of Mobile Suit, Grunt, Limited Production MS, Gundam, or otherwise, and make it ten times as awesome simply by virtue of having poured our heart and soul into building it.What the Mobile Suit is isn't what matters; it's what we make it INTO, and what we do with it that does.
>>32171728Why not zeta plus or... Delta Plus?Using Zeta will get our brain fried when we use it to ram enemy.
>>32171538"Heh, Jake just revealed his position. If we head for him now, we can probably catch him. Best case, we get him alone and unsupported and we can take him out. Worst case, Mac and Lucina are forced to engage us to protect him.""That's a good plan." Karen says. "But time is a factor, too. That MLRS has an exceedingly long range, and I doubt we can cover that distance quickly on foot.""We can try boosting there?" Amy suggests.>Time is of the essence. We'll fly there.>It's too risky We stick to the forest and proceed on foot.>Other
>>32171777wait what? this is not real combat
>>32171781>>It's too risky We stick to the forest and proceed on foot.We only know where Jake is, not the rest of the team.
>>32171781>It's too risky We stick to the forest and proceed on foot.jake is reminding me of those arty spammers in Warthunder tanks. KILL HIM DEAD!
>>32171781>It's too risky We stick to the forest and proceed on foot.
>>32171781>>Time is of the essence. We'll fly there.>>32171793i always forget that joke and sarcasm never conveyed well in text.
>>32171781>>It's too risky We stick to the forest and proceed on foot.Only reason we stayed and took the hit was because we needed to conceal our position/
>>32171821sorry about that
>>32171781>OtherWe can boost while staying low to the ground. Most mobile suits are capable of limited hoverskating. We'll do NOE flight to the Tusker.
>>32171781>It's too risky We stick to the forest and proceed on foot.Much as I'd like to catch him off-guard, if we boost the others will probably spot us.
What happens if Jake relocated due to his Tusker's speed?
>>32171881That means we may be heading into an ambush...
>>32171701I'm partial to the Rick Dias or Gaplant myself
>>32171907what about that one UFO looking one
>>32171922The Aashimar? Yeah, that's a pretty cool one. Most Titans suits have some pretty good style. Even the Baund Doc, stupid-looking as it is, has a certain charm to it. It's like a funny killer wallaby, you can't help but love it.
>>32171922Asshimar?Seems nice too.I still partial to any plane-looking one. We might able to tweak it into that half-plane mode like macross... just to spite everyone.
>>32171922the Asshimar could be funhttp://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/z/nrx-044.htm
>>32171781>It's too risky We stick to the forest and proceed on foot.>>32171904Anticipation/forewarning is half the battle, so even if it is we should have a chance.Seems unlikely, though.

>>32171701There's the Hyaku Shiki, for one, but that thing's played out to hell and back. The Byarlant's always a possibility as well...We could go for some seriously esoteric stuff, like scratch-building a Jeddah, or the Jegan Kai from Under the Gundam: Double-Fake. Or, for something a bit more recent, maybe we could make the Zero Shiki?
>>32172115YOU JUST HAAD TO DO IT!

>>32172107>>32172108>>32172115Well this one'll do more then just scratch the paint.Looks like our teammates fared better though
>>32172108You try to duck and cover again, and for the most part, it works. However, near the end of the barrage, your shield takes a direct rocket hit, shattering your protective barrier like glass. The shockwave knocks you on your back, though your Balls sort of cushion your fall. You test your hand controls, and fortunately, it still seems to function fine. You toss away the melted remains of your shield. "Jack, are you okay?" Karen asks."Yeah, I just lost my shield." You sigh. "We must be close, judging from the angle of those rockets." Karen says. "Let's keep moving."You trudge through the forest for another minute or so and finally your radar seems to be picking something up. Something big and metallic, but with all the ground clutter, you can't accurately judge its exact position. Only that it's close. "I think I got a location on Jake." You say. >Let's blitz him while he's vulnerable.>Mac and Lucina have to be nearby. Hunt for them.>Use a decoy to try and draw your enemies out.>Other
god damn it after watching SRW Divine Wars and Inspectors in one sitting today I now want to make a Zeta/Double Zeta combind in to a Triple Zeta

>>32172221>Let's blitz him while he's vulnerable.I'd rather not send a Ball on a suicide mission this early in the match.
>>32172221>Mac and Lucina have to be nearby. Hunt for them.No way they would be out there with this asshole firing blindly. They are waiting for us to attempt to move in on him.
>>32172221>Use a decoy to try and draw your enemies out.>OtherDeploy one of the Balls, move it to a different area and have it fire on the big object to test their response.Are dummy asteroids/MS a thing we can add later?
>>32172221>Send in teammates to deal with Jake as we draw enemy fire.
>>32172221>Use a decoy to try and draw your enemies out.They'll already have ambush positions set up most likely, tricking them into revealing themselves will probably be easier than hunting them and praying we spot them before one of us gets a surprise Exia to the face.
>>32172275This sounds like it might be just what we need to spring their trap.
>>32172221>>32172275This.Hopefully with the Beam Rifle, we can disable or destroy the Guntank
>>32172283Shit, it's like Abigorbine all over again.
how about these 'alternative' from this weird manga?
>>32172221"Well, it looks like it's time to kick the hornet's nest." You say, detaching your Balls. They both hover in the air for a second as you give them instructions. One Ball goes left while the other goes right before breaking the treeline and heading straight for Jake's position, their autocannons and beam rifles firing at will. Suddenly, there's a flash as Lucina's Exia leaps out of trees and slashes one of your Balls in half. "There she is!" You say.Meanwhile, your other Ball continues on towards Jake. You can hear the booming of heavy artillery cannons, but you made sure to instruct to Ball to stay as low to the ground as possible. Now, the most pressing matter was how to deal with Lucina.>Take Lucina on in a 3v1.>Mac is still MIA. Somebody needs to stay behind to keep an eye out. (specify)>Other

By the way. Holly's Balls http://www.desmondchieng.com/wp-content/uploads/Ball-Instrumentality-Project-1.jpg
>>32172461>They both hover in the air for a second as you give them instructions. One Ball goes left while the other goes right before breaking the treeline and heading straight for Jake's position, their autocannons and beam rifles firing at willJust out of curiosity, did any of those shots actually hit?
>>32172461You let Karen and Amy go off to tangle with Lucina. They're better suited for that sort of fight, anyways. What really got you worried was that Mac didn't show himself. He could be sitting back in reserve, either to protect Jake or try and ambush Karen or Amy. Well, you weren't going to let that happen.A quick status check of your Ball shows that it's still active and dodging cannon fire. However, it still can't get a clean fix on Jake's position, but it's narrowing it down.What you need to do, though, is find Mac.>Try to draw him out. >Try to search for him.>Just wait for him to show himself.>Other
>>32172881>>Try to draw him out.>Use Beam Rifle to Shoot Jake
>>32172881>>Try to draw him out.Be proactive
>>32172881>Try to search for him.
>>32172881>Just wait for him to show himself.Trying to draw him out might draw Jakes attention which we don't want.And searching for him might put us out of position to help the other two.
>>32172881>>Try to draw him out.
>>32172881>Try to draw him out.
>>32172914Jake's too busy fighting our Ball, if he shifts his attention away, His guntank will be riddled with Autocannon and Beam Rifle blasts
>>32172968He could very well take a moment of time to dispense some indiscriminate justice on our spot. I imagine he could take at least one or two shots before having to go back the smacking that ball around. And I prefer not to eat any of those shells.
>>32172986He could probably tank the autocannon fire, but the beam rifle(s) are serious business.Doesn't wanna be getting shot at by those for longer than he has to be.
>>32172986During that time it will get hit with the beam cannon or autocannon, also he doesn't know where we are. So any indiscriminate bombardment (If he has any missiles left) will be very inaccurate
>>32173015The 'draw him out' option would be a giant shoot me here sign.
>>32173000Are the beam rifles really one shot one kill? That much damage from one?
>>32173015How tough is a guntank thingy any way? Like would a few seconds of autocannon + beam fire be enough to slag it?
>>32173022Depends on what drawing him out will be, I just hope we can just use our rifle to hit the Guntank to draw him.also refer to this>>32173000It will be even worse if we hit the ammunition storage or something as well.
>>32173035It's not a one hit quit, but they do a significant amount of damage, even if they're mitigated against (like with an anti-beam coating).They're made to be big gundam fuck yous.
>>32173035No but they'll cut through his armor like paper.
>>32173035Pretty much this>>32173055>>32173043Well the guntank can probably shrug off the Autocannon blast for a good while but the Beam Cannon can ignore any armor the guntank has and a direct hit will be very bad.
>>32172881You might as well try to draw Mac out. If he doesn't do anything, his team is basically going to get ripped apart. A quick check on Karen and Amy shows that they're still holding up against Lucina. However, it's clear that the damage Karen's Overflag suffered earlier is impacting her fighting ability, and Amy simply can't match Lucina in a straight up melee fight. Lucina meanwhile has both her GN Blade and beamsaber out in each arm, wildly blocking and parrying the flurry of attacks her two opponents were throwing her way.Meanwhile, you break the treeline and start shooting beam rifle fire at where you think Jake is.>roll 2d20

>>32173198Can we get something for a straight like that? Not any sort of beneficial thing, just an improbable result in-character to account for the improbable result out of character. Like, we still lose the contested roll, but in a really weird way. It's a critical fail anyway, if I understand the rules right, so something spectacular is deserved.

>>32173363If you're talking about the d100. That's most likely a damage roll on us and that sucks.
>>32173381And how well we resist it.
GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!We're all on the same team at school so it's not so bad if you think about it that way.
>>32173395Which we didn't.
So this will be our first loss where we don't do the mutually assured destruction thing.Wonder if we'll perspective shift.
>>32173404It's a bad sign of how future battles will go, bad dice luck seems more and more chronic in Merc's quests that use them.
Inb4 we get another system to handle double 1's and 20's.
>>32173420Probably, we'll manually control the Ball
>>32173420Hopefully not.I really don't PoV shifts. Rather just watch the rest of the fight play out.
>>32173441But then again, those only highlight moments where we roll 20s.
>>32173441Be thankful it's not at Bleach Quest levels.I have never seen so many 1's.
>>32173331You see your camera feed shudder and shake from numerous weapon impacts, and your damage warning system shrieks. You raise your left arm in a reflex in an attempt to protect yourself, but all you see is your left arm literally dissolve in front of your eyes, Several bullets impact into your torso, gouging deep rents and holes into it. A stray round literally gouges a chunk of your head off, as well. The force the attack also temporarily knocks your boosters offline and fall back to the ground. All in exactly twelve shots.You see Mac's Super Maxter materialize from the trees, its two Colt Single Action Army pistols smoking. With a flick of its wrists, the chambers of both revolvers flip out, belching out the spent shells.The Super Maxter then holsters one of the revolvers and loads the other one. Yeah, typical Mac.Your grip on your beam rifle instinctively tightens as both your GM-Juggler and Mac's Super Maxter glare at each other.>SHOWDOWN AT HIGH NOON>Charge with you beam saber to catch him off guard.>Other

>>32173494We also can't take the Maxter in close combat when we've got only one arm left. He will punch our head off like a Rockerm Sockem Robot.
>>32173512but at the same time we have a skill that allows a reroll of a melee roll.Not that we'd win with the current flow of luck anyhow.
>>32173460>Charge with you beam saber to catch him off guard.We have a reroll on melee if I recall. So lets use our abilities.

>>32173557Can his revolvers be fanned?
>>32173568Don't need to be. He was firing one in each hand. Clearly they're double-action.

You can't even afford to check any of your status or radar screens, as you needed every bit of concentration for this, though you could hear the distant thuds and zaps of both hard and energy melee weapons striking each other, as well as the booming of cannons, meaning the fight was still going on strong."DRAW!" You hear Mac yell.>roll 1d20
>>32173595>>32173598Oh yeah, the pastebin says they're single action. Hmm. Maybe he's cocking the triggers with his thumbs. I guess you could program the Gunpla to do that automatically. Alternatively, he doesn't actually know that much about guns and just thought that "single action" sounded cool and old fashioned, even though the guns are double action.
>>32173585>>32173595>>32173598It's just an inaccurate reload. let it go /k/
>>32173595It is possible to fire single actions quite fast. Plus maybe he has mini manipulators in his forearms to cock the hammer back. Or robot space magic.

After this tournament I come to the conclusion of several upgrades will benefit the GM and Balls from the battles we had. From what we have in the shop so far here is what I suggest.Panzerfaust - $50 X 6 (3 for each ball): During our fight with the mobile armor while our beam cannon and autocannon dented the armor, it might have been better to have a more powerful weapon, also since these don't take up a hardpoint they will be useful.Chobham Shield - $100 (For our GM) Since our fight with the Char's Zaku and now, our shield while defending us well, can only take so much punishment. This upgrade will come in handy during more melee intensive fights. Rocket Booster - $300 X 3 (For our GM and our Balls) For obvious reasons then the rest.
>>32173684Meh, it is fun to roll even if it turns out you rolled like shit.Collective games: We take the good with the bad.
>>32173673Time seems to slow down as you raise your rifle. Each second is an agonizing eternity as your rifle sights in on Mac, but you can tell that you were going to get your shot off before Mac, but only barely. You pull the trigger and suddenly the world speeds back up to normal time. Your pink beam lances out and strikes the Maxter in the left shoulder, completely obliterating it and sending the Maxter reeling, throwing off its aim.You now had a brief opening.>Follow up with another beam shot.>Find some cover.>Close in for the kill.>Other

>>32174194Hit gets transferred to the body, then, dealing significantly more structural damage.It's like how ORE does it, but with a percentile instead of just a d10.
Rolled 6>>32174103Once again, both of you aim your respective weapons and fire. You can almost swear you see both your shots pass by each other in the air. However, whereas Mac's bullet ricochets off your shoulder, your beam gets a clean hit right on his head. There's a brief secondary explosion, and the Maxter topples over.You sigh in relief. You managed to win that one, barely. You finally check on your status again and frown. the furious melee battle was still going on, but you can see all three suits were clearly showing wear. Amy's Deathscythe was missing an arm, while the Exia had numerous cuts and punctures in its armor, no doubt caused by Karen, who still seemed to be in good shape, but her movements were getting even more sluggish.Meanwhile you check on your last remaining Ball but get no signal. You don't see any indication that Jake is active, though.>Try and snipe Lucina.>Go investigate Jake's status.>Other
>>32174249>>Go investigate Jake's status.
>>32174249>>Go investigate Jake's status.I dislike Karen.
>>32174231One Roll Engine. A neat little system using D10s. You want a set of matching dice on your roll. The number of dice that match(the width) represents how well you did. The number on those dice (the height) determines issues of luck and placement. So, for example, in combat a 2x10 roll does two points of damage to the head (not inconsiderable, seeing how a normal human only has four wound levels in their head).
>>32174249>Go investigate Jake's status.Jake might pull off a hat trick if all 3 finish Lucina.

>>32174280>>32174270Huh seems pretty interesting. I wish I actually played tabletop.

>>32174295As an addendum: I do read through alot of game books, so I will endeavor to check this out.
>>32174313Yeah, but she's damn good at the game. She's tied with Karen for highest piloting stats, at five points distributed among them. We and Mac are lowest, which means it's a good thing we paired off against each other just now.
>>32174357Like I said drinking. I am sure she is a fine character, but she is fucking up muh waifu Amy.
>>32174249You decide to go look for Jake. Checking to make sure you beam rifle is charged, your damaged GM limps into the forest. You try checking your sensors, but they're totally shot. Not like they were doing much good this match, anyways. It's then that you see trees snapping and falling over a couple hundred meters ahead of you. That could only mean Jake was on the move, and he was headed for the melee. No doubt he was trying to get closer for a better shot. Since you can't see he suit itself, that meant he had to be in Breacher mode, meaning he could seriously turn up the speed if he wanted to.>You know where he is, but he doesn't know where you are. Snipe him from a distance.>He's a ranged fighter. Engage in close combat!>Other
>>32174389>>He's a ranged fighter. Engage in close combat!I'm actually kind of afraid that he decides Direct Fire upon us.
>>32174389>He's a ranged fighter. Engage in close combat!Guntanks don't have waists. If we can get behind him he's done for.
>>32174389>>You know where he is, but he doesn't know where you are. Snipe him from a distance.We have beams.Shred him to shit before he knows what's going on and can transform to engage.
>>32174389>>He's a ranged fighter. Engage in close combat!
>>32174389>You know where he is, but he doesn't know where you are. Snipe him from a distance.He might like range but that suit can still fuck us up in melee with the state we're in.
>>32174389>>You know where he is, but he doesn't know where you are. Snipe him from a distance.
>>32174389>He's a ranged fighter. Engage in close combat!Well we gotta beam sabre someone in this fight, so I guess He is the lucky fella.
>>32174389>You know where he is, but he doesn't know where you are. Snipe him from a distance.>your damaged GM limps into the forest>limpsYeah, I think we'll need to stick with range
If we try to snipe him from range, can't he use those shoulder-mounted cannons to shell us with indirect fire? Although I guess we don't really have to worry about that unless he has a spotter.
>>32174389You take aim, your arm slowly tracking the movement of the falling trees. Quickly doing some calculations in your head, you move your rifle a little farther down the line to lead ahead of Jake's movement and pull the trigger.>roll 1d20
>>32174602Doesn't really matter, he'll be able to displace us through volume of fire alone.Better hope we bingo him the first few shots!
>>32174627Good roll anon
>>32174680Come on Merc!
>>32174680Hmmm.well what the fuck does this mean?Please be a head shot.
>>32174680You fire a burst of beam fire into the forest. However, you're not sure if you hit anything or not. Suddenly, you hear a rumbling, and more and more trees are getting knocked down, but at a much faster rate. Even worse, judging from the directing, JAKE WAS HEADED STRAIGHT FOR YOU.>FIVE ROUNDS RAPID>FROM HELL'S HEART I STAB AT THEE>Other
>>32174728>>FROM HELL'S HEART I STAB AT THEE

>>32174728>FROM HELL'S HEART I STAB AT THEE
>>32174728>FIVE ROUNDS RAPID>FROM HELL'S HEART I STAB AT THEEAny way to mix the two? Fire until he's close enough to melee. We're not exactly dodging if we don't shoot him down, given the state we're in.
>>32174728>FIVE ROUNDS RAPIDpew pew.
>>32174728Jenkins, tcap with tread there.>FIVE ROUNDS RAPID
>>32174728>FIVE ROUNDS RAPIDStop. Stop! STOP!
>>32174728>>32174728>Fire beam rifle as many times as we can, then drop it and switch to beam saber, rolling out of the way at the last second to slash the side of his guntank like Morphius does in the second Matrix movie in the highway chase.
>>32174728>>FIVE ROUNDS RAPIDOh god is he going to do a drive with one those arms.Also, Merc, what did the 11 do if anything... Because it looks like it didn't do anything.
Given the current state of our suit, how destructive would a hug + reactor overload add on to repair costs/time?
>>32174791Well, we can't see him, so we don't know what we hit. We just know that it didn't immobilize him. For all we know we took out one of his guns and he's charging us to make up his lack of ranged power.
>>32174835So he's going to ram us to death?
>>32174757I wouldn't mind that: Us firing at his position while walking, then jogging, running!As a round explodes behind us, we toss away our rifle and begin to charge with our beam sabre held in front of us like lance! We break into the clearing he is sitting in, jump into the air with his shells exploding all around us!Then:Roll 1d20
Rolled 14, 7, 3 = 24>>32174728You stand your ground and hold your beam rifle outward. One advantage to firing at somebody charging is that they can't really dodge your shots. But considering this was Guntank TUSKER you were facing, you couldn't take anything for granted.>roll 1d20
I hope we didnt lose a chance to speak with char sometime.

Guys, I think this is our diego perry moment.

>>32175098>shounen battle logicYou should stop that.
>>32175065Also, those asshole in the gunpla club? You don't think they were capable of 1v1 based on them fighting as a "team"?
>>32175047THE FOURTH COMING OF THE MEIJIN.
>>32174880>>32174881>>32174887Your shot is exactly dead on, and it hits home and true. The moment TUSKER appears from the trees, you fire your beam rifle right when Jake fires his dual cannons. You can literally see the two 180mm shells whizz by both sides of your head as they overshoot and land behind you, exploding and showering you with shrapnel, dirt, and wood splinters. However, your shot doesn't miss. It drills straight through the TUSKER and apparently hit something important, as the entire gunpla literally EXPLODES, buffeting your GM with fire and chunks of Gunpla.BATTLE ENDEDYou blink as the battlefield dissolves away, and you see that Lucina had finally gone down to Karen and Amy's combined assault. The Exia certainly went down fighting, having cut off the Overlfag's head while Amy stabbed it from behind, the end of it her scythe jutting out of the Exia's chest.WINNER: TEAM OBSIDIANThere's a roar of applause as the gathered crowd cheers at the end of the battle. "Congratulations!" One of the organizers smiles and shakes your hand. "You're this tournament's 3v3 champions!"You see another organizer handing Karen a large trophy, as well as several slips of paper. You show your sportsmanship by shaking the hands of your opponents, and then all group for a celebratory picture.However, you aren't the only event going on today, as the 1v1 bracket is still going strong, and the crowd begins to disperse.>Hang out with your friends for a bit.>Check to see how Holly is doing.>Track down the owner of that red Zaku.>Other

How much do you think it would cost to give a guntank a waist?
>>32175285I don't see it being much. It's basically making a turret that can take the weight. And that's really the biggest I would see.
>>32175285Guntanks can already traverse, unless there's something with the HG I don't know about.
check to see how holly is doing
>>32175313biggest problem that is
>>32175318The only HG guntank type kit I know about doesn't have a waist joint. Then again it also sells for as much as an Amazing Booster...
>>32175163>>Hang out with your friends for a bit.
>>32175318No they can't. Guntanks have no traverse. They have to turn their entire body to aim their main cannons. Which means they're arguably worse than just making a giant tank.
>>32174887how did you know that was a perfect song
>>32175338Doesn't that mean that Guntankers live the StuG lyfe?
>>32175355Even the StuG could move its gun left and right a bit. That thing >>32174728 doesn't look like it do even that.

>>32175424>>32175439This thing seems silly.
>>32175457I'll laugh if this isn't Char at all.So damn much.
>>32175163"I gotta hand it to, Mac, that was a pretty ballsy thing to do." You chuckle as you brofist your best friend."Yeah, well, I knew you wouldn't be able to resist. Plus I really wanted to see which one of us was faster on the draw." Mac laughs."Damnit, Mac, you know I'm always the better shot." You shake your head."That you are." Mac nods."Hey, Lucina, so how did it feeling having to take Karen and Amy on at once?" "Very exciting." Lucina smiles. "It's not something that happens often, you know. Karen as always is a formidable fighter.""What about Amy?""Mmmm, I think Amy still needs a bit more practice. Plus I don't get why people like scythes so much. They're very unwieldy weapons.""HEY! I heard that!" Amy pouts."And I guess we gave you a hard time, huh Jake?""Yeah, I guess the field kinda screwed us over." Jake shrugs. "Was trying wide area bombardments, but of course, those don't do much against properly disciplined enemies.""Still, you really scared the shit outta me when you charged like that. If I had shot any later, my Gunpla would probably be paint on the ground. Um, sorry about your Guntank, by the way.""Ah, it's nothing. I can fix it." Jake shrugs."So, Karen, what are our winnings?" You ask."Well, we get 10,000 Bandai Points for 1st place, while Lucina's team gets 5,000 for second place.""Bandai Points?" You raise an eyebrow."Well, we're still technically underage, so they can't very well give us actual cash." Karen explains. "Besides, they're redeemable at any store that carries Bandai product, anyways.""Huh, I guess that makes sense." You shrug.>Go check on Holly>Go look for the red Zaku>Other
Its never occurred to you guys that we can rouse our friends to follow us to see Holly and mysterious Red Zaku?
>>32175462Seemed cool as shit when I was 5. I still have a soft spot for it even if it is totally and completely ineffective in pretty much every way.

>>32175501It sounds pretty good, but I doubt those Bandai points translate 1:1 into dollars.
>>32175424They sell gunpla at Epcot?
>>32175525Considering how people were freaking out over the price of parts in real money, it may be this way from now on.
>>32175537People are stupid.
>>32175470Check on Holly
>>32175536They did 15 years or so ago at least.
>>32175525>>32175537Well if we split the cash like that and they to go that way; that's more than a decent chunk of change.At the least we could buy a few boosters if not a brand new kit.
>>32175525If it does equal to 2500How does this >>32173697 soundunless the shop has more stuff
>>32175617With how often our Balls job, no e don't need to sink any more money into them right now.
>>32175630It's inexpensive though, and doesn't cost them any hardpoints, also increased Boosters will benefit their already fast speeds
can't wait for the shopping wars next week. Hope the catalog gets an update.Anyway t's 4AM here so I'm calling it a night. Thanks for the good times!

>>32175470"Hey guys, wanna go check on Holly?""Yeah, let's see how much ass your little sis kicked!" Mac nods.The six of you then head over to the 1v1 tables, where you little sister sitting on a bench, sullenly drinking from a juicebox. Beside her, you can see her prized Super Ball in a small box beside her, now cut up pretty bad."Jesus, Holly, looks like somebody really did a number on your Ball!" Mac whistles."Looks like from a heat axe, too." Lucina adds as she leans in for a closer look."I'm guessing your battle didn't go too well." you sigh."No, not really." Holly looks down, a little glum.>Tell her that she's not going to win every battle.>Try to cheer her up telling her you won the 3v3.>Tell them your suspicions about the red Zaku.>Other

>>32175778"Don't be so down, Holly." You say, sitting down next to her and patting her on the head. "As a fighter, you're not going to win every battle. It's a mathematical impossibility. I mean, you did really well for your first time, and at this point, you can only get better.""I guess you're right." Holly sighs. "I guess it would've been better if my opponent actually talked to me, but he left the moment the battle ended.">I see, can you tell me more about him?>Which way did he go?>Other

>>32175886>>Which way did he go?
>>32175886>I see, can you tell me more about him?
>>32175915i recall its a guy on last thread.It just that Jack recognize his red zaku as something familiar.
>>32175886>Which way did he go?Gotta get my plot before the cliffhanger.
>>32175886>Which way did he go?sportsmanship motherfucker!
>>32175928Then why chase someone who isn't Char?
>>32175937That's right! Nobody busts our little sister's balls and leaves without saying anything!>>32175915She thinks it's a guy, but they were wearing a hood and she never heard their voice.
>>32175945Jack thinks its Char's Red Zaku.If its really her old Zaku, then that guy maybe related to our Char or something.
>>32175987Why would they be competing incognito in an amateur tournament if they weren't a professional, and who did we literally just watch professional clips of last night.
>>32176024Because it's her little brother...
>>32176036That would make an odd amount of sense.
>>32176024from last thread:> You then see Holly's opponent reach down to his bag and pull out a red Zaku.>Wait, haven't you seen that Zaku before...?Implies that Red Zaku PROBABLY is our Char's gunpla. Then like >>32176036predicted, this guy maybe connected to Char, maybe her brother/sibling/cousin.
>>32176058In before Faylnn
>>32176058There's also this.>He had the hood up, so you couldn't get a clear look at his face. Kinda sketchy, actually.We've just been assuming that it's a guy. It's possible that it's just Char under the hood.
>>32176058I find it more likely she'd use her old not supped up gunpla to battle amateurs for some reason. I mean who would give away their first gunpla, and who would want to battle using somebody else's? That's not what gunpla fighting is about. I honestly just think Merc is using 'he' to make it less obvious, but I guess we'll find out soon.
Why do we care if it's her Zaku or not?
>>32176097Char's sister from VMQ2
>>32176102Kinda what I'm wondering...
>>32176102We are on stalker mode on Char, anon. Since she not coming on promised match several years ago, we got a bit obsessed when we finally found her again.And if its her Zaku, Jack will care because maybe like others already pointed out it could be:1) her incognito2) her siblings/family.>>32176126Ah, never followed VMQ. I follows Merc from PJ Witches.
>>32176138>stalker modeThis is what bothers me the most.
>>32176138>stalker mode onYou realize how fucked up that is right?
>>32176156You don't understand, Jake fought his first Gunpla battle with her. That makes it okay to be obsessive about her.
>>32176102>>32176130Well for meta some of us are thinking this person is Char. I think Jack might have a small hope it's her. Though I think choosing to pursue this person should be about their poor sportsmanship.
>>32176172This.And the fact that she never comes on promised rematch might give Jack a bit obsessive.Besides, rivals stalking each other is time-honored tradition on Gundam.
>>32176172That sounds really dumb as hell.
>>32176172No, it does not. Not even remotely.
>>32176151>>32176156It's not true stalker mode. That anon made a poor word choice. We're not really obsessed with this. Just curious about the sense of familiarity we're getting. Haven't you ever run into someone or something you vaguely remember from childhood and gotten a case of nostalgia? It's at that stage for Jack. It might develop into something creepy if we keep pushing it, but for now he just wants to find out if his sense of familiarity is justified. Trying to talk to that person is a perfectly healthy course of action. For now. Like I said, it could get creepy if we push this.
>>32176192That really sound dumb as hell. Also if it is her then we fight her when the time comes, its stupid to meet her until then.
>>32176194It is.>>32176202I was being sarcastic.
>>32176192If this is her why else would she compete in amateur 1v1 tournaments unless she was looking for somebody specific. You never forget your first.
>>32176215Then we can just ask our sister, why chase a specter.
>>32176215So can we agree not to push it. Because really... Its messed up.
>>32176229Well, we still waiting for Holly description on her opponent.>>32176241So far we haven't pushed it too far.
>>32175886"Holly, which way did he go?" You ask."Ummmm, I think he went into the back hall there." Holly points."Hey, can you guys keep an eye on Holly for me? I'll be back in a minute." You say, getting up."Uh oh, is some gonna get his ass kicked for snubbing your little sis?" Mac cracks a grin."I'm just going to talk to him, that's all." You shrug. Especially if it who you suspected it to be. "I'll be back."You jog over the rear hallway that Holly pointed out. However, no sooner than you round the corner when you catch a flash of red in front of you and you run directly into something you realize too late is another person."Aw damn, I'm sorry-" You your voice stops when you realize it's the same red hooded owner of the red zaku, except this time the hood has fallen back and have a much clearer view of her face."Charlotte?" Your heart stops. So you suspicions really where correct."...Jack?" She blinks.>It's uh, good to see you.>Where the hell have you been all this time?!>What the heck are you doing here?>Other
>>32176270>What the heck are you doing here?

>>32176327Seconding this.Really blowing off our sister... not cool.
>>32176356Can we at least phrase it along the lines of "Why are you in such a hurry to leave" so that it sounds more like curiosity and less like we're casting judgement? Because we're not being very sportsmanlike, ourselves, if we're going to try to force the issue.
>>32176344That sounds utterly ridiculous, Jack so far seems like the type that hates it when people leave without congratulating each other
>>32176270also seconding >>32176327

>>32176448>>32176434Some spaghetti spilled will unavoidable.but since there are other anons voting otherwise we might able to contain most of it and regain our composure.Especially because this unexpected development.
>>32176270"What the heck are you doing here?" You ask."Well, um, fighting in the tournament, of course." Charlotte mumbles, her eyes trying to wander away from your gaze."Well, anyways." You frown and grab her hand, pulling her back up to her feet. "Come with me.""W-what?" Charlotte blinks. "Don't tell me you're going to-""I just want you to go tell my sister you had a good game." You say. "I can't stand it when people don't show proper sportsmanship.""Oh, so that's it..." Charlotte sighs."What? What did you think I was going to say?" You raise an eyebrow."NOTHING." Charlotte shakes her head rapidly.As you lead Charlotte back to where you friends and sister were gathered, she speaks up again."Um, Jack..." She mumbles. "Can you do me favor?""Yeah?" "Can you please not tell them who I am? I mean, you can tell them my name, but not that I'm Charlotte Rafale. I don't want things to get awkward...""Why, because you're a upcoming world champion?""See? Everybody keeps saying that stuff and never leaves me alone about it!" Charlotte sighs. "You know, for once I'd like to go to a tourney where nobody recognizes me...">All right, I won't tell them.>My friends are pretty cool. I'm sure they won't give a shit.>Other
>>32176483>>All right, I won't tell them."ever considered mask?"
>>32176483>>All right, I won't tell them.>But my friends are pretty cool. I'm sure they won't give a shit.One might for different reasons but overall I doubt they would care after the first reaction.
>>32176483>other>"Should've thought about that before you started smurfing at local competitions and beating up little girls."
>>32176483>>My friends are pretty cool. I'm sure they won't give a shit.
>>32176483>All right, I won't tell them.>Other.I don't think they would mind after they recover from the initial shock. I bet they would want advice more than anything.
>>32176507All be it, he brings it up in vicious way, Anon has a point.It's kinda shitty for pro to be in a local comp like this. Something we should address with her as well.
>>32176483>My friends are pretty cool. I'm sure they won't give a shit.
>>32176483>All right, I won't tell them."Oh, sorry. I didn't mean to expose your identity. Is that why you were in a hurry to leave, you thought someone recognized you? It wasn't me, was it?"
>>32176483>Other Agree to keep it a secret. Then ask her what she gets out of these tournaments she doesn't in the pro leagues.
>>32176533Sorry. It's late. Tolerance for bullshit in fiction drops dramatically past 2 AM.
>>32176483>All right, I won't tell them."Then wear a mask. Concealing the upper half of his face always worked for the actual Char. Gundam genre convention dictates nobody will ever figure it out."
>>32176483>>All right, I won't tell them.ASK FOR A REMATCH DAMMIT. Also, are the captchas getting harder to solve or is it just me?
>>32176553Stop drinking, Anon. The children are scared.I miss you. Please come home.
>>32176545>>32176502>>32176530>>32176483Some weird combo of these.They hit all I want to cover at least.
>>32176553yeah, its getting harder sometimes. i prefer a bunch of number than some jumbled word.
>>32176483seconding >>32176545even if this doesn't win I hope Merc can squeeze this in, It's a legitimate question IC and I want see how she lies to us. I'm onto her.
>>32176553>Also, are the captchas getting harder to solve or is it just me?Not harder, at least for me. But I keep having mine clear half way through typing it up. So i have to type the captcha in the text box the c/p it over.
>>32176568Yeah, words a shit but are we seriously not asking for a rematch she owes us
>>32176553I was thinking the same thing. I've been failing the captchas a lot this thread, I think I've been spoiled by all the easy series of numbers and it went back to shitty looking words that aren't really words.
>>32176588Not important in the least bit right now.
>>32176588Not now, at least.
>>32176588No. We owe her. We won that battle, if there's going to be a rematch it'll be because she wants to try again now that she's all super skilled. Jack's not in a position to ask a rematch of her. Holly is, though.
>>32176483Childhood Friend Crush DETECTED!Captcha: yzandow that
>>32176636Put away your shipping goggles
>>32176648He can't, he's a shitty fucking tripfaggot.
>>32176483"All right, I won't tell them. But they're pretty cool. I don't think they'll make a big deal out of it." You say."Maybe..." Charlote sighs. "But thanks.""Anyways, what the heck are you doing in a local tournament like this? I don't want believe you get your kicks beating up opponents who can't match you.""Fighting other pros just gets really... intense at times." Charlotte sighs. "But once you get even the least amount of famous, it gets really hard to fight anybody BUT pros. Battling sort of loses its magic eventually, you know?""No, but it sounds terrifying.""Yeah, well, sometimes I just break out the old Zaku and just go find the first local event I can find." Charlotte says. "I don't really play to win, anyways. I always drop out before I get too far in. Doesn't really feel right taking advantage of people like that, you know?""And also because if you win first place, you just attracted attention to yourself.""...that too.""You know, why don't you try wearing a mask if you want to hide your identity so much?" You crack a grin."Oh yeah, that's TOTALLY going to keep my presence under the radar." Charlotte rolls her eyes. "What do you think this is? A cartoon?""Sometimes, I wish it was." You laugh.At this point, you finally reach your group. You don't really specifically introduce Charlotte to them. Charlotte, for her part, apologizes to Holly and shakes her hand, telling her that it was a good game."And that's genuine, too. I had a real great time battling her." She says to you."Anyways, I think it's time we should be going." Mac points to his watch. "Mason's gotta go back.""Well, we're done here." You shrug and turn to Charlotte. "How about you?""Ah, well, I was just gonna take the bus home." Charlotte shrugs."Alone? At this hour?" You blink. "It's fine.">Okay, whatever you say.>No, it's NOT fine.>Other
>>32176666>No, it's NOT fine.
>>32176666>>No, it's NOT fine.>>Other"Why don't you hitch a ride with us?"
>>32176666>Hitch a ride
>>32176666>No, it's NOT fine.She can hitch a ride with us.
>>32176666>Ask if she wants to hitch a rideDon't force the issue here. If she really doesn't want to so be it.
>>32176666>Okay, whatever you say.Cagey bitch.
>>32176666>No, it's NOT fine.That's just asking for some guy to drag her into an alley and steal her gunpla.Hey, it's more likely than you think, the Gunpla Mafia is a thing.
>>32176745It's a beater zaku, it doesn't have a lot of value to it.
>>32176666>>32176709Agreed. Let's acknowledge her autonomy a bit, huh? If she wants to take the bus let her take the bus. But we should at least offer.
>>32176783I don't understand the generosity.She said she pulls out of tournaments before she gets too far in, and yet here we are. Now she won in the singles category.What the hell?
>>32176802She didn't win in the singles category. She left several rounds before the final match-up. There were more people who signed up for the singles than the team category, so there were more rounds of elimination to get through.
>>32176834I'm pretty sure you're having a stroke Anon.Who did you think Holly was competing against in the final round of the 1v1 bracket?
>>32176666"No, it's NOT fine." You say. "Why don't you ride with us? We can drop you home.""Um, well..." Charlotte blinks."Well, we do have the space." Karen nods."And we can get something to eat, too! I'm fucking STARVING.""Jack, do you know this girl?" Lucina says, finally asking the obvious question."Just a really old acquaintance." You say vaguely. "Everybody, this is Charlotte."Everybody nods and smiles, giving her their own names. "You guys are all part of a team?" Charlotte asks."Yes. Part of a school club, actually." Karen smiles. "If you ever to go Jager High, you should come see us.""I'll think about it..." "Making friends already?" Mason asks when he sees you all bringing along an extra person."Yeah, she's with me." You say."Ha, such a player you are!" Mason chortles. "All right, everybody get in and let's get going! We'll grab something to eat, drop this little lady home, and then head back to the shop!"Whether through fate, accident, or some hidden intent, you find yourself sitting next to Charlotte in the back of the van, largely separated from the rest of the crowd. Both of, childhood friends who literally only knew each for a day before being separated for over a decade, look at each other awkwardly as the both of you try to figure out what to say.>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget to catch Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and the conclusion for Fallschirmjager Witches on Sunday! Don't miss them!
>>32176845And just for clarification, Holly was NOT in the finals.
>>32176867Then I guess it's me having a stroke.
>>32176854Char: Acquired and get
>>32176867Yeah, last thread you said "quarterfinals". So still a match to go after it before the final round.
>>32176854Thanks for the thread....The sun is up now so I'm going to sleep
>>32176882I'm still hopinh for a lucina route
>>32176882I'm worried we were a bit too forceful in this. Remember how we were going to try to keep it from getting pushed to far and becoming creepy? We're walking a thin line, here.
>>32176908Sorry, line met and past. The /tg/ Anonymous is not a social creature.
>>32176920That much is clear from every quest thread.
>>32176920Too true, too true. Maybe we can salvage it, I don't know. I blame it on the time. This quest ran late, we're sleepy and not thinking through the potential consequences of our actions.
>>32176931C'mon, Anon.Now you're just making excuses. Search your feelings. This would've happened at 3 PM just like it did at 3 AM.The problem is Anon's judgment, not Anon's judgment being compromised.I would like to state that I voted for her to find her own way home.
I fail to see how any of the decisions made were bad.
>>32176948Not the Anon you're talking to but I voted to ask at least not force it.>>32176950The last one we kinda forced on her, put her on the spot by saying it's not alright instead of just offering.
>>32176948Yeah, you're right. /tg/ sucks at interaction unless we're trying to diplomance. And even then we need GM fiat three quarters of the time. Maybe I'm just projecting, because I know I'm certainly tired enough to not be thinking straight. I did vote for her to get a say in the choice, though, so at least I'm not directly responsible.
>>32176950Do you also have a hard time making eye contact, reading body language, or talking to strangers?
>>32176966I think you guys are reading too hard into this.
>>32176966>/tg/ sucks at interaction unless we're trying to diplomanceThey suck at that as well.
>>32176966I don't think they (we?) are very good at that either.See >>32176994>>32176987I think it's more that we're just voicing our dissatisfaction. I know I'm not super stoked with how ANY of that conversation went.
>>32176867Thanks for the thread, MercOne question, didn't Jack mention Charlotte to the rest of the team already? It seems like there's a disconnect somewhere since at least Mac and Karen heard of her before
