You don’t know what you were thinking to do last night, but it sure as hell was funny.“Goddamn it, Trudy!” yells Kitten as she covers herself up with a blanket. Fairless meanwhile is already getting dressed out, angry at being woken up so early. Mind you, they were pretty cute sleeping together. Kitten nibbling on Fairless’ ear, Fairless moaning quietly in bliss. The works.But they’re now awake and they’re not exactly happy. It’s time to beat a hasty retreat.You take a quick shower, dress out, then set out breakfast for everyone. Cereal, milk, some oranges, the likes. “Come on guys!” you say as they awkwardly eat breakfast. “It was funny wasn’t it.”Fairless says, “I was wondering what was biting at my ear.”“Yeah,” says Kitten simply. “I was wondering why I kept hearing ‘Gertrude’ as you slept-“ Fairless kicks her under the table.> Pack up and Head Out> Talk to Fairless (Topic?)> Talk to Kitten (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

I didn’t find it funny.”“Well,” you say as you stuff your pajamas into your bag. “You may, later on.”Kitten crosses her arms as you walk out the door. “Still can’t believe I was chewing on your ear.”“Yeah, Kitten, you seem to have a habit on biting things when you sleep lately. I’d check that out if I were you.” You smile. “Not that it ain’t the cutest thing since Hello Kitty.”You meet with the Senior Council, dressed out in jackets for the colder weather. Claire looks at you. “Oh, Gertrude. You slept over at Fairless’ place again?”You nod. “Sure did.”Henrietta and Andrea giggle a bit, to which Claire elbows Henrietta. “Okay then,” says Claire. “Shall we get to class?”With that, you head onto the campus.> Talk Tanks (Topic?)> Converse Casually (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>32332193>> Talk Tanks (Pershing)We are getting a big american tank, ask if they want dibs.>Study Anzio
>>32332193>Talk Tanks>Study a Tankery Team (Anzio)>Hello KittyThats a terrible song
>>32332193Okay, so our budget is ~$27K. While pretty reasonable, I think we should stop buying tanks. For now.The pershing is listed as 45K, so out of our range, for now, unless we use one of the girl scout purchases, which would be *okay*, IMHO.So, assuming we buy 'big american tank' with the GSA's money, what do we do then? I think sponsoring that team that the crippled girl (forget her name) is teaching would be a good move that would gain us more publicity and possibly even more sponsorships.Lastly, we need that money to help rebuild our Tankery HQ. IIRC, the insurance covered some of it, but not all.
>>32332193When do we find out our flag tank so we can place the appropiate add ons
>>32332330We bought the Pershing.We're not sponsoring her yet for now.The building is paid for via insurance
>>32332330...bro. It's been bought with a token for a LONG time now.
>>32332193> Talk Tanks (Topic?)>>32332330We wouldn't sponsor anyone, it would be a donation to kickstart their team. It would be downright bizarre for one high school team to sponsor another team. Also, this discussion wouldn't even happen until after our match on Thanksgiving so there's time
>>32332382>We bought the Pershing.NVM, then. Onward with our 'big american tank'!>The building is paid for via insuranceCool beans.I still think we should use that money for more than tanks. Raise tank awareness. Tanks are a dead-end asset, but if we put the money into something like advertising, or our own sponsorships, we can earn more money back.
> Talk Tanks“So girls, I put in an order for a big tank. The M45 Pershing.”Henrietta and Andrea gasp in shock. “Really?” asks Henrietta. You nod, smiling. “Cool! When it’s coming?”“After Pravda,” you say. Their faces fall a bit. “Don’t worry, you can have dibs if you want.”Andrea says, “Big gun, less problems you know?”Henrietta says, “I tell you something! It’ll be a hell of a thing in the America-mobile!”Of course.But then, you arrive at school.Fairless says to you, “Hey, maybe after practice we can grab some dinner?”Kitten walks up behind you. “Actually…I was thinking we could have dinner. Just the two of us. Me and Trudy.”“Well, Carol, I think Gertrude could use some time away from you,” says Fairless.Fairless looks at Kitten with a bit of a glare. Kitten puffs her cheeks out, glaring at her too.Oh for gods sake, you do not need this.> We can all have dinner> I can have dinner myself, I can’t remember the last time I got time to myself.> I can have dinner with Fairless> I can have dinner with Kitten> Write in

>>32332700That's not bait, dipshit. In what fucking universe is saying "pls no," baiting?I hope you don't drive.
>>32332715Good idea, but I don't want Kitten to die of shock when Fairless sneezes or something.
>>32332730Kitten's getting territorial, she stood up to Fairless's glare
>>32332730We need to toughen up the Kitten.
> We can all have dinner“Guys, come on. Sorry about the prank, honestly. We can all have dinner, just please.” You sigh. “Don’t fight over me.”You always fantasized about people fighting for your affection. You never did specify WHO exactly would be doing it. Jesus.Kitten says, “Fine.”Fairless says, “Sure. We can have dinner at my place-““We’ll have it at the BBQ place,” you say.With that, the two give each “the look” and separate to their classes.

> Walk AroundYou decide a walk around campus would suit you fine. You say hello to students on the way along with the occasional shooting the shit. Nothing too interesting.But then you run into Fredendall.She’s picking up garbage, clad in her school uniform, looking down as hell. A Hall Monitor stands by, making sure she doesn’t escape.Good sweet justice.Fredendall looks at you, with a heavy glare, then goes back to picking garbage.> Rub her nose in it> Forgive her> Write in

>>32332990>> Write inMove on. She is beneath us; unworthy of even our contempt.
>>32332556So, let's talk tanks instead...We have 27,400 available and 2 Girl Scout purchases left. We'll get 30,000 on every Monday. We're clearly in the final stretch here and so can look at putting the finishing touches on our tanks. Just looking at the finances, and not what can be physically done... the Firefly may be the last upgrade we can get in before facing Pravda. And we can probably expect to spend a lot of money on the Pershing once we get it. And outstanding upgrade options include:StuG III Ausf. F/8: 14,500T-34/57 Model 1943: 7,500Panzer IV Ausf. H: 9,500Sturmpanzer IV Series Three: 2,000M36B1 Jackson: 15,000Panther Ausf. G: 22,000Comet I: 29,000T-34 Chassis to T-34/85: ~20,000I don't think we need to buy any new tanks, though if we really are concerned about the Junior Council we might consider the 7TP. It's better than the 1939 Panzer III, and has a couple of experimental upgrades that would give it a high velocity 47mm gun. That would put it on part with the Somua S-35, at least, and would be adequate for a scout tank. Better a mediocre tank wielded with skill and elan than a more powerful tank their smaller crew numbers can't manage effectively. Maybe. Just throwing that out there for consideration.Anyway, the StuG upgrade offers the lowest real advance in capability relative to cost so should be the lowest priority. I prefer the Comet over the Challenger due to its much lower profile but we can get the Challenger for half the price. Still, I think it might be worth dropping a token on. But we'll also need to get the Panther and T-34 chassis into fighting shape and that will also be 20,000+. In any case the Sturmpanzer, Panzer IV, and T-34/57 can all hit their "terminal" upgrades for 19,000 so doing that first may be advisable, leaving the decisions on tokens and paying for the Panther, T-34 chassis, the Pershing, and upgrading the Cromwell for later.
Also, what day is it in-game?

We pretty much just throw the money at Mr. Mishka. >>32333136>>32333143Silly me, I didn't look at the very top of the OP post.
> Write inYou give her a wide berth and continue on walking. She huffs as she continues picking up trash.Oh god that is the best thing you’ve seen all day.But regardless, class goes by relatively swimmingly. The English professor indeed goes on a lecture about making choices.“Alright, Class. There’s an important thing you all need to do in your life, and that’s making a good decision. In life, you face a lot of hard choices that will not present an easy path. It’s not precisely black and white like they show in Saturday Morning Cartoons, no. It’s a much more complex thing that you need to realize. And that’s why when you make a choice, it has to be well-informed. College for instance, do your research, try and figure out what you want to do before you get there. Figure out what you want to do in life.”One of the students raises her hand. “Professor?

> Head Directly to LunchSome time alone as you eat your lunch. A burger, some fries, a carton of milk. It’s always good time to get a bit introspective or whatever.Indeed, you have to think about the match with Pravda for instance. If you recall correctly, your flag tank was going to be the Panther tank. That’s Charlotte’s tank. Charlotte, unlike Kate, still hasn’t had a lot of time to really get into her own as a Commander. Then again, you’ve only got two officers for a team of nearly twenty teams. Might be worth it to promote another two soon.But then, your staff arrives. “Hey, Nancy,” you say. “How were the Japanese girls?’Nancy sits down next to you, smiling. “They were lovely! A bit mad that I did actually forget about them, but quite lovely!”Lisa nods. “Yeah, I could hear their high-pitched Japanese squealing from my dorm.” She looks over at you, smiling. “So, how was last night?

>>32333441That's so stupid it could work. Too bad we can only deploy her on "our" half of the map.

> Boast“Oh, it was a fun thing!” you say. “We got to bathe, we got to sleep. Heck,” you pull out your phone and show them the picture of Kitten nibbling on Fairless’ ear. “Look at this!”“Aaawww!” Nancy grins, her cheeks red. “They’re so cute!”Lisa says, “That’s so gay.”“But they’re so cute!” says Nancy.“But they’re so gay,” says Lisa. “But yeah, it is cute.”“They didn’t find it cute when they woke up,” you say. “But, regardless, it was a fun night. I’m actually going to have dinner with the both of them after practice.”Lisa says, “That’s going to be awkward.”“How so?” you say.Lisa leans in. “Word on the street is that Fairless is crushing on you hard, same with Kitten.”You wave her off. “Pssshaw!

Okay, judging by our budget, I suggest we get 4 improved engines and two shurzen armor.One for Trude's Tank since it's Elite and the other is for the Panther.Imrpoved engine I think we should give it to the Heavy tanks, such as the Tiger and the Churchill since we're going up mountain passes probably. I think we should get one more commander before the match but who?

>>32333592What about Team Needlepoint?They've proved themselves time and time again. I think they'd be pretty good.
>>32333592Definitely Needlepoint, we might also think about the Freshmen as our 4th to groom them for command
>>32333601Scout Leader?Sure, I can see it. But what about the last improved engine?

> Talk Tanks (Topic?)“So, girls. Let’s talk tanks for a second. Ramirez, are the tanks painted up?”“Yep,” she says. “After practice today, Aeroscraft will pick them up and send them down to Australia.”Nancy nods. “We should try and book a flight either today or tomorrow to Australia.”“Of course,” you say. “Can you handle that, Nancy?”“Sure,” She says. “Just tell me when you want a flight but I suggest as early as possible.”“Other than that, how do you guys figure Charlotte will do as the flag tank?”Lisa says, “She better do good.

>>32333632I'd have to agree with this mostly because Anne is busy with scoutswork, and she's also a Senior which would mean that experience would be gone next year. I'd be cool with Anna as the next officer, and Cathy would be on my short list for the next officer after that.Other officers I would consider are Samantha and maybe Janet. I would like Marina as well, but she's busy with the SKycraft club (plus they DID blow up one of their own planes...), and all the rest are either inexperienced, not as reliable (Dales is noted as not having very intelligent initiative, and Barkas is not driven), or Seniors.
>>32333740>>32333758We need spotters, and we have a small company of scouts. It's either them or Polish team as scout leader
>>32333781Scouts don't work as a team.
>>32333798We need someone to coordinate them though
>>32333758I agree with Anna then Cathy. Not a big fan of Marina, Janet's a bit too HOT BLOODED. Samantha's a decent choice though.>>32333781Officers need to lead, anon.
>>32333808You mean us?

>>32334176Whoops, my stupid.Please accept some adorable as an apology
Looking at the their dialouge, I think Marina and Dory are the best candidates
>>32334221>> Head Directly to the HQ>Study AnzioCathy, Dory, and Marina are our best potential commanders
>>32334236>>32334275Marina is busy with Skycraft. Cathy is in a heavy tank and will most of the time follow our King Tiger around.
>>32334221This->>32334275Also supporting votes for Cathy and Dory. Marina would be great, but her efforts are divided, and her program will take more of her time next year.

>>32334221> Head directly to the HQ.Is it complete?>>32334236Ehhh... the dialogue isn't the best way to judge them. I do agree that Marina is a good prospective candidate, but, again, she has Skycraft to worry about, plus she did go rogue during the Chi-Ha-Tan battle (which thankfully worked out well for us). I'd rather her be zipping all over the damn place than coordinating. Dory I didn't consider because she's brand new.Still going for Anna and Cathy: despite her flightiness, Anna's been good at the tanks. Honestly, I'd like Anne as an officer as well, but her main sticking point for me is that she'll be gone after this year.
>>32334341I'm okay with Dory.
>>32334338We need to focus on this year though, and we still have trude next year and other sophomores and freshman
>>32334221>Head Directly to the HQ
>>32334358And that's a fair point. If more people are for it, then I'll support Anne over Anna. I definitely won't budge on Cathy being the fourth officer, though.

>>32335220But the Chi-Ha hit the Chaffee, not the other way around
>>32335234I'm imagining the Chi-ha getting cut off.
>>32335252It's hard for Fairless to glare people out of the way when she's in a tank.
> Command Theory> Write inAccording to what Nezumi told you, Izumi apparently was joyriding at the controls. Figures. They managed to hit the Chaffee hard enough to knock off one of the road wheels and scatter several of the tracks. They’re not light, you’re sure of that.So thusly, you help Fairless and the Seniors repair it. You also pressgang the Japanese into helping them as well, as punishment.“I don’t see why I should be blamed for the mistakes of my subordinates!” says Nezumi as she tiredly holds a track a place so it can get reattached.Izumi says, “Implying I’m your subordinate!”Alisa says, “Guys, guys. You’re both equally stupid!”Fairless stands over them, and says, “Shut the fuck up.”The three of them quiet down, immediately scared out of their minds.While that’s going on, Joanna leads everyone on a lesson in Command Theory nearby out in the cold.“Right, from their example, we know that coordination in close formations is important. One little thing out of place can send an entire formation running,” says Joanna. “This is why we have spread. It’s like driving a car on a highway, you give your friendly tanks a decent amount of space to work with. Generally speaking, you want to be ten meters away from each other at least for close formation. Wider stuff, it can be a tank per kilometer. This spread keeps you from bumping into each other and from ricochets bouncing off and penetrating your tank instead of someone else’s.

> Combat Theory“Alright, now in any given situation, when you want to angle the armor of a tank, you shouldn’t expose your side armor that much.” Joanna continues her lecture as you finally manage to fix the suspension on the Chaffee. “An extra 5-10 degrees of angling against an enemy tank should suit it fine without exposing the side armor at angle where the shot may penetrate.”Cathy raises her hand. “What about when you’re moving?”“Well ideally, if you’re engaging an enemy tank, you should not be moving.” Joanna says, “The thing about it is that you have to consider the gunner. Even Michelle likes to take shots while at a standstill because that’s how you get the best shot. Any shots made on the move are generally for suppressive purposes rather than for trying for a killshot.”Anna raises her hand. “So basically, if we want to make a killshot, we have to stand still?”“Well, if you’re moving, you better be at point blank,” says Joanna. “Because you ain’t going to hit shit if you’re moving. Our tanks don’t have the benefits of gyrostabilizers save for a few exceptions. And for certain tanks, firing on the move is just a damn waste of ammo. Pravda for example probably could’ve won their Nationals semi-finals had that IS-2 just stopped and let the gunner aim for just a few seconds.”You say, “Funny you should be saying this.”“I know,” says Joanna. “But maneuvering is everything.

Nezumi says, “Assam-san, this tea is terrible.”Assam says, “It is Lady Grey tea!”“It is terrible,” says Izumi.“Guys,” you say. “Focus.”Nezumi says, “Oh right. Well, Pravda is a very versatile school. That midget knows her way around a good set of tactics. From what I saw of the map, she might try and exploit the mountain passes, turn them into killing zones with IS-2s and tank destroyers.”You nod. “Okay, I’ll keep that in mind. What about you, Izumi?”“Well,” Izumi scratches her chin. “I hate to say it, but Nezumi-san’s assessment is sound. The only things they have that could conceivably climb the mountains and probably flank you would be the SU-76s.”“Alright,” you say.“Right, let’s get rambling,” says Joanna.With that, you all return to the tanks to finish off with gunnery practice. The first is the Kilometer challenge, which Michelle, Nancy and Assam pass with flying colors. Assam is a surprising case considering she’s working with a low velocity gun.“Nice job,” you say.“Thank you!” says Assam. “It’s not a QF 75, but I can adjust quite well.”Beyond that, besides the Seniors and Juniors having some trouble with firing their guns, you finish off practice without a hitch.> Head Somewhere (Specify)> Hit the Showers> Talk to a Member of your Crew (Specify)> Talk to a Crew (Specify)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

>>32336306I'm still unconvinced. Of all the times officer training has been mentioned recently Dory was only considered after the quotes of the various officer candidates were released. I wouldn't consider that to be indicative of anon support.Meanwhile, Anna has been considered for the last few threads, and Cathy (if I recall correctly) well back into the time when we decided on our first officers.

>>32336504> YConfession time?
>>32336548Mariana doesn't have very much free time what with Skycraft.... Gah. I really wanted to wait and make her the fourth officer, but honestly it seems like Cathy has the most support among the anons.>>32336554From Kitten and Fairless? Possibly.From Trude? No. I mean, wanting to focus on Tankery and the school closure and her being so far into the closet that she's in fucking Narnia aside, I don't see any reason for Trudy to tie herself down. I mean, she's 16 and she doesn't know what she wants to do with herself. She has no reason to snub one girl in favor of the other, her sexuality aside, because she hasn't made a choice about her own future.Actually, that's an interesting commonality between the three of them: Trudy has mentioned repeatedly that she has no idea what she wants to do, Kitten seemingly has no real drive aside from helping Trudy and herself, and Bernadette is waffling on a full ride to Princeton, and has mentioned that she was considering working in LA as a makeup artist after college (not exactly a sign of a determined future).Actually, that last tidbit about Fairless makes me wonder if her financial future is secured somehow, and thus what her career is doesn't exactly matter to her...
>>32336521No.>>32336548Marina is not free. Remember Skycraft?Cathy is no use as a leader due to never being far from the other heavies.

>>32336812>> “Guys, please.”We're all friends here
>>32336812> “Guys, please.”Yeah, time for some prostration.
>>32336872Given Fairless is involved, I think they're avoiding this one.
>>32336812"Guys, I think I am in love with ... myself."
>>32336690>>32336830There aren't any ideal candidates, bud. The best we can do is choose officers who don't panic and act as a detriment to our team by doing so.Aside, Cathy doesn't necessarily need to stick with the other heavies, she can hold a choke with her own small squad now. The Churchill isn't so inflexible when we can't plant them at one point and the Tiger at another. You're overstating her disadvantages.
Why don't we ask for officer volunteers, see who has the initiative to do that much at least?
>>32336812>> “Guys, please.”
> “Guys, please.”You say, “Guys. Come on. I mean, this morning ain’t nothing. I do apologize for it and all that. Just… stop glaring at each other. You’re going to set the place on fire.”Kitten says, “Well, Bernadette. I am sorry for munching on your ear last night. Won’t happen again.”Fairless nods. “Sure as hell won’t.”…You say, “Look, can you guys just please get along? I mean, we’re all friends here! Right?”“We are,” says Kitten.Fairless nods. “Mhm.”…You say, “Well, we should pack our things soon you know? We are heading out to Australia tonight and Nancy has booked us a flight.”…This isn’t working.> “Welp, I’m going to go pack my stuff! You two have dinner by yourselves, yeah?”> “Why are you guys so passive aggressive at each other!?”> Write in
>>32337059>“Why are you guys so passive aggressive at each other!?”
>>32337059>> “Welp, I’m going to go pack my stuff! You two have dinner by yourselves, yeah?”They need to settle this themselves
>>32337059>> “Why are you guys so passive aggressive at each other!?”
>>32337059>> “Welp, I’m going to go pack my stuff! You two have dinner by yourselves, yeah?”That sounds like such a harem MC question that it's terrible
>>32337102>>32337126They both want trude, and see each other as enemies.
>>32337059> "Why are you guys so passive aggressive at each other!?"Let's put it on the floor right now.
>>32337059> “Why are you guys so passive aggressive at each other!?”We tried nice. Now we try not quite as nice.
>>32337059> “Why are you guys so passive aggressive at each other!?”They're playing you, Trude! They're enacting operation pay-back!
>>32337059> “Why are you guys so passive aggressive at each other!?”I think we all know the reason why.
>>32337059>> “Welp, I’m going to go pack my stuff! You two have dinner by yourselves, yeah?”
>>32337143Yeah, but avoiding solving it by packing stuff is the harem MC action.
>>32337144Really? I think they may be too similar that they repel each other
>>32337190No, we're leaving them to their own devices to figure this shit out.Honestly, this is bullshit, this is one of the scenarios that I was hoping to avoid and was relieved when German said no romance. I'm disappointed
>>32337198Well, we know that Kitten is attracted to Bernadette but was terrified of her at the same time, and Bernadette thought that Kitten didn't like her because she always tried to avoid Bernadette when she talked to her. So, I think they do like each other to some extent, but Trude's balancing act between the both of them is starting to irritate both of them, and rather than take it out on Trude they're taking it out on each other.
>>32337059>> “Welp, I’m going to go pack my stuff! You two have dinner by yourselves, yeah?”We can do stupid. That is what they want, right? Right.
>>32337059*tilt head and index finger to dimple*>> “Why are you guys so passive aggressive at each other!?”
>>32337224A: You're getting ahead of yourself, they could easily be playing Trude or just have clashing personalities.B: Stop overreacting, no-one has everything go the way they want to in a quest. When GS confirmed no romance last night I didn't throw a tantrum, I just supported his right to shape the story and dealt with it despite my disappointment.
>>32337284I'm not trowing a tantrum but honesty out of all the cute girls doing cute things scenarios, he had to use this one.
> “Why are you guys so passive aggressive at each other!?”“So… what’s with all the passive aggressive bullshit guys?” you ask.Fairless says, “I dunno.”“Me either,” says Kitten.“Come on,” you lean forward on the table. “Look, now I might have some idea about what this is about but listen, I want you guys to get along. Alright? This sitcom archenemy stuff isn’t helping your cases.”They look at you, a bit concerned.You sigh. “Just… please stop. Look, I apologize for that prank, again. Honest to god hand on my heart, may God strike me down if I take my words in vain.” You smile at them, warm as you can. “Please? Just stop?”Fairless sighs. “I suppose.” She offers her hand to Kitten. “Friends?”Kitten looks at you, then takes Fairless’ hand and shakes it. “Friends.”“Alright then!” you say.…Fairless says, “Problem is, we haven’t got shit in common.”“Yeah,” says Kitten. “I can detect this isn’t going to last very long.”“Guys, please,” you say. “Let’s just enjoy dinner.”> Head Somewhere (Specify)> Talk to Fairless (Topic?)> Talk to Kitten (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other

She pulls up her smartphone. “I’ll look it up on Wikipedia.”“Don’t do that!” says Kitten desperately. “That ruins the illusion!”“Too bad,” says Fairless. After a few seconds, she says, “Ah.

Not that it’s anything strange it’s just… this is normally around that time that girls learn about that kind of stuff and they try it out themselves you know?”Kitten nods, concerned. “Yeah, I’m actually kind of concerned.

>>32338985When it says the rounds were tested against sloped armor, the penetration value is exactly what you think it is.The reason it was tested against sloped armor is because sloped armor tends to shatter rounds, the reasoning behind it was that the slope would better simulate battlefield conditions where the perfect shot against 90 degrees was rare.

>>32339306>>32339378We gotta tank for the tank match
>>32339433I realize that, but I really want them to get along, and if Trude sits with them then they're going to be concentrating on Trudy.
>>3233940976 and 85 are pretty much the same chassis.Yeah the 75mm on the Chaffee had trouble with the T-34, but it's still a Light Tank.
>>32339306>Sit in between them
>>32339481But from what i heard the 75mm from the Sherman and the Chaffee's 75mm had the same ballistic or penetration power. That's what is worrying
>>32339550That's true. But most of the current line up has pretty strong shoulders.
> Find another place to sit> Write inYou sit in between Kate and Charlotte. “Alright, you two. I’m going to be counting on you guys to lead your respective groups to victory. Charlotte, not to pressure you but you do have the important responsibility of being the Flag Tank. I hope you can handle that.”Charlotte nods, determined. “I’ll do my best.”“Great,” you say. “Just keep covered by everyone and try not to do anything stupid.”Kate nods, leaning back in her seat, already covered in a blanket. “Yeah, just stay back, don’t be so mental.”You say, “Since you guys are here, do you have recommendations for the next Officer? Anybody you think might do good in the post?”Charlotte shrugs at that, quiet. Kate says, “Well, I’d promote a veteran, Gertrude. Cathy, Anna, or Samantha. I’d recommend Marina but she seems a bit stressed from having to work on Skycraft.”You nod. “I’ll take that into consideration.”> Head to Sleep> Move to another Seat (Where?)> Talk to Charlotte (Topic?)> Talk to Kate (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>32339605>Sleep while cuddling one of these girls
>>32339605>> Talk to Kate AND Charlotte (Topic?)Strategy for the battle
>>32339605This right here >>32339639
>>32339605>Talk to Cathy, Anna, or Samantha about their interest in officership
>>32339594True, most of our lineup had 17 pounders or long german 75mm. I just hope the 6 pounders will be enough
>>32339605> Talk to Kate and Charlotte (Strategy)Let's pull out the map and show it to them. Between Kate's experience and Charlotte's wargaming ideas, they might come up with some unique strategies we haven't thought of.When we go to sleep, we can join Kitten and Fairless.
> Talk to Charlotte> Talk to Kate“So, what the strategy you guys propose?”Kate and Charlotte spend some time studying the map off your lap. “Well,” says Kate. “I reckon the passes here and there will serve to funnel us in. The left side is an entire open space that can probably be taken advantage of by Pravda. They put IS-2s there supported by T-34s and Tank destroyers, they can force us into the pass where our technological advantage won’t matter for shit. Because as you can see, they have the height advantage.”Charlotte nods. “Agreed. I think that maybe if we rush with all our tanks either one way or the other, we can force a breakthrough, maybe catch the flag tank unawares. Seal the deal from there. If we try to play defensively, we’d have to play to mountain pass we’d start in. We’d essentially be surrounded with no place to go.”Kate says, “But, we could easily reinforce either flank, unlike Pravda.”You say, “Well, I’m partial to the offensive strategy myself.”“Of course,” says Kate. “Well, tomorrow will be a day of finalizing the plans perhaps.”> Head to Sleep> Move to another Seat (Where?)> Talk to Charlotte (Topic?)> Talk to Kate (Topic?)> Call Someone (Specify)> Read a Book (Specify)> Consult the Shop (Specify)> Study a Tankery Team (Specify)> Other
>>32339907> Move to another Seat (Co-Pilot Seat)I CAN FLY!
>>32339907> Call Someone dadAny tips for punching Koalas in the face? I'm heading down under and i could use the help.
>>32339907Both seem a little bad, maybe we can get our scouts to rush a bit to be spotters for the Strumpanzer.Lay surpressing fire
>>32339907>Talk to Cathy, Anna, or Samantha about their interest in officershipMore information is good
>>32339907> Move to another seat. (Gather Samantha, Cathy, Anna to talk about potential officership)
> Talk to CathyYou lean over to Cathy. “Hey, Cathy.” She looks at you, smiling. “Suppose if I were to promote you to Officer. How would you take that?”Cathy says, “Oh, that’d be a huge responsibility. I’m not sure if I could handle it.”“Well,” you say. “I’m sure you could. You’ve been with Tankery so far now.”“Well… eh, get back to me it on I suppose.”You look over at Anna. “What about Anna, think she might be interested?”Cathy shakes her head. “She made a few dresses for me, and we were talking. She doesn’t seem all that interested in being an Officer. Samantha on the other hand though,” She points to Samantha, sound asleep. “Samantha’s honestly been itching to prove herself. Making her an Officer might make her happy like that.”You nod. “I suppose.”Cathy nods. “Anyway, I’m going catch some sleep, Gertrude. You should too.”You look over at Fairless and Kitten. They’re fast asleep, leaning on each other and sharing a blanket. D’aw…You say, “Alright.” You grab a blanket and tuck yourself in.You’ve got a journey ahead of you.> END DAY
>>32340147That's it for today! I will return tomorrow at the usual time of 3 PM EST.Follow at: https://twitter.com/GermanSchteelBefore I leave the thread, I'd like to clarify one thing.Although I have stated that there may not be any romance in LGA proper, and I'd like to remain on this stance, I consider myself flexible. I reward you guys with your patience and your persistence with all the mistakes I have made with this Quest and I thank you all truly for staying by it at its worst moments.In terms of romance, Gertrude may not actually try and romance other characters. It won't stop others from trying that's for sure. In terms of character interactions, whatever happens may affect the epilogue so to speak for a different ending for a character.So think of it like this, you interact the right way, perhaps Gertrude will end up with this particular person in the future.So, honestly. Thank you all for staying. I'm sorry if I disappointed any of you. See you next time.
>>32340216Thanks for running. See you tomorrow.
So who are we sending out for this match?I'm actually inclined to field the chi-ha due to the expertise of the team. Seems pretty good and experienced. Probably not all that far from eliting.
>>32340216Thanks for running, boss. Have a nice night.
>>32340216So what are the chances of Gertrude x Fredendall redemption arc
>>32340216Nah its good.Thanks for running, schteel.
>>32340297A chance may come for that later.
>>32340267Several arguments against:1. It would be a dick move to the other teams that were training before they got there. Metagame wise, we can reverse it, but IC it's a concern. 2. Their actual effectiveness is questionable. The commander, driver, and loader aren't exactly working as a team. The tank isn't particularly good, and their saving grace is that Assam is Best Girl and Best Shooter. Given those two considerations, I would lean towards No.
>>32340338Agreed though, considering they have the high ground counter artillery may be a good idea. At least enough of a surpressing fire to allow a break through
>>32340147So, are we talking Officers now?It seems like the last few posts made Samantha the #1 candidate in my eyes. Cathy would still be a good #4 officer because we do want to develop her.
>>32340338Agreed here. They need to watch us, understand us, and then stop crapping all over each other.On the subject of Officers. Cathy is reluctant, tells us Anna has not shown interest and Samantha really wants it.We should pounce on those two and get the full circle of opinions, as well as asking them "what of the other two"
>>32340395Samantha meets the requirements, just need a bit of trigger discipline
>>32340338Might need some artilleey support to flush out the pravda tanks, especially if we're assaulting upwards. At least that was my consideration.The brumbar by itself has too low a rate of fire.
>>32340147Well, Anna doesn't want it and Cathy doesn't think she's ready, but Sam is hype.>>32340267They're also not working well together. We can save them for when they're not conflicting with each other. So far Assam is the only one not being a shit.I think the teams to sit out should be the Juniors, Seniors, and the Japanese.
>>32340420We can use the Stug as well maybe the Churchill.
>>32340420Well whoever we pick as the new officer, I think it's safe to say we leave them in charge of Artillery support
>>32340420It's really a shame Charlotte's crew is the flag tank: they've could've taken control of that trouble area before Pravda had a chance to get there.
>>32340539We could have taken the high ground. but in this case we can use this ability to hide somewhere
>>32340574Probably best to have the panther with the main force provide it with support.Dont want it isolated from our forces and then attacked.
>>32340612Maybe? It's also very risky but their are also limited path ways in the mountains
>>32340657And likely if they dont see our flag tank, they'll continue scouting. That'll be our sop too. It'll only be a matter of time bdfote they find the panther.With our force, it can hang back at the rear and if we're assaultinv upwards, it can provide some covering fire from the rear.
>>32340696Also risky they can pick people off with the TD or the KV-2, they have the high ground thus the thing, only thing we can do is bring the fight to them but make supressing fire to their cliff
yo Schteel, theres a bunch of tanks listed as "Unavailable" in the roster when they are available and being used, and the M45 Pershing still ain't listed as delivery in progress
