You do your best to look professional- keeping a calm, almost bored look as the flashbulbs and people mull about below the stage. But underneith the calm demeaner you're just a step below panic- the only thing keeping you from ducking under the table to escape is Anzu on one side and Miho and trainer Ami Chouno on the other. And about fifty members of the international press in front of you.You are Commander Russells of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank and today you've made history- you've won the first battle in history between the M26 Pershing and the PzKpfw.IV-II Konigstiger. Althought the M26E1 had been designed to take on the thick armor of the Tiger II, German had been defeated before it had been able to deploy. Ever since the question had always remained- if the two beasts had met in combat, who would have won? Today, you've partially answered that question. And now you get to live with the ramifications. As if some invisible signal had been given, the press begin shouting questions. Thankfully for you, they're mostly in English.>"Can you describe your Panzer?">"Do you feel your tank had the advantage?">"What do you have to say about your opponent?">Panic.>Other.
>>33172909>"Can you describe your Panzer?">"Do you feel your tank had the advantage?">"What do you have to say about your opponent?"On Erika: her ego keeps writing checks her tank, couldn't cash.
>>33172909Hey BJ, Its your Editor! Good News it, I've finally caught up with everything! Every thread up till now has been spell checked, edited, and divided into episodic format. Let me get a google doc set up for each episode, then I'll post links. It has been fun looking back over this awesome quest. >"Can you describe your Panzer?">"Do you feel your tank had the advantage?">"What do you have to say about your opponent?"1. , Its a tank, not a Panzer. 2. Yes, in key areas. 3. * >>33172942 anon post here*
>>33172909>"Can you describe your Panzer?">Other.Don't let our driver take any questions, because he'll inevitably narrate events starting with the following lines.>"There was a lot of eavesdropping, peeping and unbuttoning involved."And it will only get worse from there.
>>33173016>>33172942This guy. Also thanks for your hard work anon.
>>33173016Lets go with this.
>>33173029Thanks, But BJ deserves most of the credit.

I need to know If the format, I.E. where I draw the episode breaks, works.
>>33172909>"Can you describe your Panzer?"Black Jack didn't really get to see action in WWII but did in the Korean War with my grandfather, so this opportunity was really exciting. [Insert general description here]>"Do you feel your tank had the advantage?"It was specifically designed to win this fight.... and it had my crew. [attempt charming smile]>"What do you have to say about your opponent?"My opponent has some real chops but it seems she was out of her element in a one-on-one match. I think our next encounter will be a lot more interesting.

>>33173563I've been looking through episode 1 and so far it seems pretty good.
>>33173705>implying I do good work.You're gonna make me blush...
>>33172909>"Can you describe your Panzer?""I can. First, the M26E1 is a tank."Provide interesting tidbits thereafter.
>>33173807Oh god, this.
>>33173807>>33173016I concur with these, but think we shouldn't talk too much smack about Erika. Let's be sportsmanly.
>>33173016three rounds rapid response, keep their heads down.
>>33173379dumb question: during this segment of last session:>"Careful..." You warn, opening the hatch as you come to the corner. "Slow- I don't want to blunder right into them..." You say carefully as you pop your head and shoulders out of the turret- You don't hear her tracks and, as the turret rounds the corner, you see why. Less than a hundred feet down the road you see the Tiger II stopped at an intersection, angled into it with her gun pointing north- Erika sitting up outside the hatch- the gun is pointed down a side road. Evidently she'd decided to try to ambush you, but had gone a few streets too far. For a second, you both stare at each other and you swear that you both blink at once. I'm confused, where is our turret and hull pointing, on the compass, in this scene? As a reader, I'm having difficulty making a metal picture of the scene.
>>33174035I see it as pointed either East or West, depending on which way we came. For drama it can be pointed slightly south as well, making the turret traverse more equal between the tanks.
>>33174090Thanks for the input. I'll just wait for BJ to toss in his 50 cents before editing. I've been fine with the other battles, but this last one is the only one I feel would have been better with some sort of map to show our location, routes traveled, where we think Erika is, etc.
>>33174035City is roughly a grid- the main boulevard travels East-West- we came off a North/South oriented cross-street and rotated our turret to face East (towards the ocean.) and Erika's tank was parked a another cross-street with her turret pointed North (She'd last seen us retreating off the main boulevard North and hadn't seen us cross the boulevard since then, so logically we'd be on the North side of town.) She merely underestimated how far we'd traveled and how quickly. She was actually damn close- literally a street off.
>shittalking to the international pressCome on guys. Isn't that a bit much? It's bound to bring us a headache down the road. Just give them a 'they fought well' and leave it at that.
>>33174220Thanks for clarifying BJ. Next question: When Miho challenges Erika, she calls the KTII Blue Fredrick. But, when the Hamster asks Erika if the KTII has a name, she replies the crew calls is Big Kitty. Which name should stick? Here's my thinking: If the KTII is bloodied, a historical name would be prized by Kuro, while a nickname would be scorned as insulting. But if Kuro does not like naming tanks, then the nickname might evolve.
>>33174367Yeah, that's a fuck-up on my part. The Tiger(P) is Blue Fredrick.
>>33174426I will make sure that's clarified. I'm thinking of name dropping that when Russells gets shown the hull. Does that sound good, or do you have plans to reveal the name coming up that would be disrupted because of that?
>>33174507Actually, I got the name from some of the writefaggotry that was popular for a time- people were naming and writing short stories about the origins or personalities of some of the tanks. (IS-2 was named Red Vanya and wanted to CRUSH WEAK CAPITALIST TANK, Blue Frederick was the Tiger(P), Big Kitty was the Tiger II, etc.)What ever happened to those? I liked reading them. :P (And as far as I'm concerned they're canon for the most part...)
>>33174583PTSD Firefly and gentleman Black Prince were the best among the bunch.
>>33174583Got it. I've been making an effort to collect them as a 'tank-spectives' *name pending*, chapter. I'll dig them back up.
You point at a member of the press, who introduces herself as representing the NHK. "Can you describe your panzer for us, briefly?" She says, holding what appears to be a mostly redundant notepad.You swallow before nodding. "Well, first off we call it a tank..." You say, eliciting a murmur of laughter from the crowd. Okay- good start. You hope. Oh god, you hope you didn't insult the poor lady. Keep going, moron! Answer her question before you look dumb. "Black Jack is an M26E1 Pershing- it was designated a heavy tank during WWII. Black Jack didn't fight in WWII, but did see action in Korea after being re-equipped as an M26A1." You stop, hoping thats enough of an answer.The reporter mostly keeps looking at you, though. "My grandfather actually served as a crewmember on it during the Korean War, he then bought it when it was going to be scrapped after the war..." There's a slight murmer through the crowd- that was something they found interesting.>"Do you feel your tank had the overall advantage?">"Tell us about the your tank's main gun!">"How do you feel about Oorai's chances in the ongoing tournement?">Other.
>>33174728>>"Do you feel your tank had the overall advantage?">>"Tell us about the your tank's main gun!">>"How do you feel about Oorai's chances in the ongoing tournement?"Wall me, bitch.
>>33174646Yeah, and if anyone wants to write anymore of them. A few of them almost got me teary-eyed.
>>33174728>"Do you feel your tank had the overall advantage?"
>>33174728>"Do you feel your tank had the overall advantage?"Save the tourney question for last.Keep them hooked to the unfolding story.
>>33174754This.1. sound echos for miles in a dense urban environment. it was a case of listening and waiting. 2. *reply what we've said before on the 90mm.* 3. cautiously optimistic.>>33174771I've actually got most of them... except for the Tiger (P) and BT-7. Did /k/ write that or was it Rufus/Spreadsheet warrior? anyone remember what thread that was?
>>33174845I've never done any writefaggotry.
>>33174875So it was either Red Vanya, who has been absent/anon since the Ukraine situation went to shit, or Rufus/Spreadsheet, who is not here/has yet to arrive. I'll ask Rufus if he shows up tonight. if he doesn't show up, I'll go back to archive diving.
>>33174936Vanya's an American, IIRC.
>>33174754>>33174845seconding these two
>>33174845>>33174754Long as we point out the biggest advantage our tank had, comparatively, was rubber tracks.
>>33174998Excellent, more misconstrued innuendo for Richard to (knowingly or unknowingly) make> "Well, we were wearing rubber, so Erika was probably shocked when we came in from behind."
>>33174954I guessed as much, given his timezone complaints, but that's what I remember happening in the news right before he went AWOL. I have a historian's mind: I remember things by relating them to events.>>33174998That's what I was getting at, but I see that we may have to be explicit about that. >>33174771I'mma make a prediction here: Erika's going to get the same treatment Miho did after losing: no friends, followed by being kicked out of Black Forest. Either way, I would love to hear the debrief between Erika, Maho, and Shiho. Surprise transfer to Ooarai?
>>33174936Doing my duty for my father's fatherland.>>33174954Yes. Well, uh, not anymore since US citizens aren't allowed to be foreign volunteers during wartime because of terrorists and what not.I will be seeing if the Ukraine will help me appeal that decision in the US courts.
>>33175141hue hue, nice try.
>>33175121Or Erika will make her case of it being a one-time fluke, but will get bumped down to commanding a Panther nonetheless.And then we can recreate that Pershing/Panther duel.BFP will still probably need her skills for the tourney.
>>331751410.0dude, you are awesome. My feelings for you right now go beyond hero worship, and into 40k-levels of veneration. Still, remind me, did you do the Tiger (P) writefaggotry and/or remember what thread that was posted in?
>>33175239Honestly, I can't remember. And don't hero worship me. Sometimes you just gotta take a stand for what's right.
>>33175121I doubt she'd get kicked like Miho since Miho sort of threw the match to go rescue people.
>>33175241Ya missed this one >>33173018
>>33175321It is less lewd
>>33174728>"Do you feel your tank had the overall advantage?"We have rubberized treads, so we were a lot quieter, and we had the clearly superior gunner.
>>33175225If that's the case, do you think she'll break ranks to try and KO us in the finals?>>33175258clarifying, not 'ZOMG, FUCKAWESOME SOLDIERMAN!', rather, the simple pride and happiness that I can tell people I know someone who's fighting for liberty and freedom. coming from a guy who A. has asthma and thus is unable to serve in the military B. has more military history books than most of my college professors, I view military service as something not of glorification or worship, but as a willing sacrifice that should be remembered by all. geeze, you can tell how sentimental I'm getting by all this rambling. Pic related.
>>33174754>>33174845>>33174998Three responses, three questions
>>33175442>do you think she'll break ranks to try and KO us in the finals?When Maho's around, it's pretty much guaranteed that she'll be leashed, metaphorically speaking.
From the voices of many, another question arises- This one from an L.A. Times reporter. Closer to home! "Do you feel your tank had an overall advantage against your opponent?" He asks, looking down at his notes. You nod. "The Pershing had everything we needed to face the Tiger II on equal terms." You comment proudly. "Our gun is outstanding and Rose, our gunner, is perhaps the best I know of." You say, smiling a bit. "That being said, I think our biggest advantage was our tracks..." You say."Can you elaborate?" The reporter asks."Our Pershing had rubber shoes on its tracks- strategically it protects the tracks and improves their lifespan..." You explain. "In this case though, it also made us much quieter compared with the Tiger II's steel tracks- we could literally stop and listen for them- We had a pretty good idea where they were the entire match- because of that we were able to sneak up behind the Tiger II.">"Tell us about your tank's main gun?">"If it had been a head-to-head fight do you believe you would have won?">"Do you think Oorai can win the tournement?">Other.
>>33175646>>"Tell us about your tank's main gun?">"Do you think Oorai can win the tournement?"
>>33175646>"Tell us about your tank's main gun?">"If it had been a head-to-head fight do you believe you would have won?">"Do you think Oorai can win the tournement?"1. standard T15E1 spel, 2. cautious optimism, 3. With BlackJack, my crew, and my commander, anything if possible.
>>33175646>"If it had been a head-to-head fight do you believe you would have won?"We merely secured the method of victory first. Whether the fight was head-to-head or not matters little.
>>33175702 is me, please replace response 2 with >>33175712.
>>33175646>"Tell us about your tank's main gun?""It's an experimental gun similar to the Super Pershing's high velocity 90mm, but the one-piece shell is shorter and fatter, mostly the difference is giving us more room in the turret."
>>33175702This one had the T54. Similar performance, different shell.
>>33175702this guy, but with >>33175712 and >>33175776added.
>>33175646>Tap A to skip dialogue
>>33175808he's got the idea
"Can you tell us a bit about the Pershing's main gun?" Another reporter askes, a bit louder than the people around him- From the accent he's some kind of European. "It uses a non-standard cannon, correct?"YOu nod. "Yes, Black Jack mounts the T54 90mm cannon." You say before pausing. "It's a modification of the T15 gun used on the T26E4 Super Pershing- it uses a shorter, fatter casing that's easier to load in a cramped turret. It has a longer barrel and higher muzzle velocity than the standard 90mm M3 cannon." The guy was probably familiar with armor- so you don't mind getting a bit technical. "In short- the M3 was designed to compete with the 88mm-armed Tiger, while the T15-series was designed to compete with the long-88-armed Tiger II and 128mm-armed Jadgtiger."He seems pleased with the answer and sits before the room erupts into more questions. One stands out. "Do you believe that you would've won if the match had come down to a head-to-head fight?">"Absolutely.">"It would be a toss-up.">"If I allowed it to become a head-to-head fight I deserved to lose.">"Other."
>>33175646>"Tell us about your tank's main gun?"Rose, you're up!
>>33176796>>"If I allowed it to become a head-to-head fight I deserved to lose."
>>33176796>>"If I allowed it to become a head-to-head fight I deserved to lose."Final Fantasy Tictacs
>"If I allowed it to become a head-to-head fight I deserved to lose."Warfare hasn't been about the glorious charge since Sevastapol.>>33176801Fuck! Missed!
>>33176796>"If I allowed it to become a head-to-head fight I deserved to lose."
>>33176819>>33176824True nuff, but I think the point of the question is to assess Black Jack and the Tiger from a purely technical standpoint, impractical and unrealistic in context as it may be. A lot of these guys are layman. They just want something easy like Godzilla vs King Kon.
>>33176796>"It would be a toss-up, at best, but really if I allowed it to become a head-to-head fight I deserved to lose."
>>33176796>"Absolutely."The Goddess of ballistics was on our side!
>>33176824Got your back, Anon.
>>33174771I might try to write something at some point then. I've never done it before but I like mechanical things so I think I could do it justice. Especially the Tiger P. Leopon/Blau Frederich is my favorite <3
>>33176856>They just want something easy like Godzilla vs King Kon.We should include that line then; >"This matchup wasn't just Godzilla vs. King Kong."
>>33176867>>33176856So we should say that a head-to-head would basically just be Russian Roulette as far as winning goes, but if we let it get to that point we'd have failed as a Commander?
>>33176819>>33176856>>33176939these guys have it.
>>33176954Pretty much. Back in the US team blackjack could have won basically every match by driving straight at the other tank's position and firing upon getting into range but Russels and co still played the cat and mouse game because they've got muh sportsmanship
>>33176954The thing is it's one of those questions that's really hard to answer. There's so many factors, one of the chief ones being the competing crews, dumb luck, terrain.... and what would a head-to-head match really consist of? Some wild west stand-off and shooting at each other until something breaks? That's more the territory of data analysts comparing fire power and armor and maneuverability in a controlled environment. I don't know much about tanks, honestly, so I can't speak for Russels here, but it seems to me that it's not a scenario one should except to happen in real life. Armchair general trivia stuff.
Consensus.BJ poast plz
>>33177463he's proof reading the dialog. that's 75% of the hour right there, making good dialog. all I really do is spell check and format, with the occasional edit.
>>33177509HAHAHAHABJ doesn't proofread. Trust me.
>>33177509No, 75% of the hour is getting his ass whooped in WoTFor Blackjack does not believe in the power of TOG
>>3317750975% loss rate in WoT you mean.
>>331775641. BJ gets creamed because WG nerfed the SuperPershing to near-uselessness.2. BlackJack is a loyal fan of The MightyJingles. He is a steadfast believer in the power of the TOG.>>33177593how much of that is in random battles, do you think?
>>33177626BJ just needs to git gud
>>33177673BJ needs a Pershing that's not crap, and teammates who are not mouth breathing, window licking, morons.
>>33177673he has about a 48-49% winrate, IIRC, which is rather good.
WinRate is all LUCK.
>>33177718>WoT>Not having mouth breathing, window licking, morons as teammatesThis is WoT we're talking about.
>>33177718Regular Pershing is great. No-one's forcing him to use the Spergsh.
>>33177810OK, fair point. I amend my suggestion to playing modes other than random battles.
"What do you mean, head to head?" You ask back. "Like- no maneuvering? Just a frontal brawl?" You're tone is incredulous, but the reporter nods earnestly. "It doesn't happen like that. At least not between two machines and crews of similar stature. Tank fighting is about out-flanking your enemy, getting the drop on them, placing yourself into an advantageous situation and capitalizing on..."You sigh, capitulating. "Honestly? It's a toss-up. We both have guns capable of penetrating each other's frontal armor at combat range. It comes down to who engages and fires the first effective shot." You say, noting the disappointed look on the reporter. "Sorry- tanking is about a lot more than just guns and armor- it's tactics, strategy, doctrine. You win the fight long before you fire the shot. If I'm honest, I'd deserve whatever loss I got if I'd tried to go head to head with the Tiger- and she'd deserve the loss if she tried it against me.">"Do you think Oorai can win the tournement?">"No more questions...">Other.
>>33177888Hey Rufus, glad to see you! you would't happen to still have that Tiger P writefaggotry, would you?>>33177911>"Do you think Oorai can win the tournement?"With Blackjack, my crew, and my team captain, anything is possible
>>33177911>"Do you think Oorai can win the tournement?"Keep tuning in and find out!Odds are pretty good if the next match is with Anzio though.
>>33177911>"Do you think Oorai can win the tournement?"Absolutely. We got good steel, great ideas and a lot of heart.
>>33177725>48-49% winrate>Losing more than half the time>GoodAlso, he's 50.48%, which is painfully average.http://worldoftanks.com/community/accounts/1002103458-LegioCI/http://www.noobmeter.com/player/na/LegioCI/1002103458/>15,000+ games>can't break 51% WR>Several T10 tanks>can't get above 50% WR in half of themHe certainly DOES need to git gud.
>>33177911>>"Do you think Oorai can win the tournement?"'Together, Ooarai can.'
>>33177935seconding this response. brings the team into it, and does not sound like boasting.
>>33177935>>33177949>>33177969screw it, put 'em all together.
>>33177965He got 53% on SPershing. With pretty good stat too.I think he just fucking didn't care at this point and just play what tank he like.Though that 40% WR on jumbo...*cries*
>>33178062Consensus has been reached. BJ, commence writing.
>>33177626hey man, the TOG can be fun. in groups of three, assuming it's top tier. Then again, that top tier clause kinda ruins it.
>>33178321Before elenberg get reworked, i once blocked a bridge with my TOG.And enemy being mentally deficient, lot of them get slaughtered when trying to push my wreckage.Oh God, i enjoy it.
>>33178321I was on a team with EIGHT TOGs once.Half the other team immediately voiced their surrender and sat in their starting positions.The other half were crushed by the naval onslaught
>>33178352That's what I meant by fun, haha. TOG Wall, best wall.To be fair, though, I'm absolutely dismal in it, but I'm not good at tanks to begin with, so it is what it is.
>>33178381Ew.Eight TOG? MM must be drunk again.>>33178383TOGblocking has become less relevant now, with many map reworked to include more than one choke point.
>>33178091Yeah, I played the Jumbo back in my early days maybe 2 years ago? Super Pershing got to 55% before the 8.8 nerf. Played about 100-200 games since the nerf and the winrate dropped to 53%.Should've sold it when I had the chance.
>>33178381TOG tank is party tank. that match had better have been recorded.>>33178418>MM, drunkyou wish, he's just an arsehole.
>>33178418Oh, no doubt. I can imagine you could still use it on, say, the middle path on lakeville, but IDK how much good that'd do, honestly, since the last several times I played that map we lost because most of our heavies went into the valley. Why does everyone go valley? I mean, I'm garbage and I know don't go valley unless you're a TD, and even then you just camp the back. I don't get it. but I"m the only of my friends that still plays who owns a TOG so these days it just collects dust and I use the excelsior to help train the churchill crew.
>>33178452I just wonder what kind of sadist put Chi-Ri with same MM weight with heavies. Didn't too matter on tier 7 but on high tier....>>33178420jumbo before HEAT nerf was godly. It still pretty good now but rather overshadowed by Ez8.
>>33178418Eight togs... that's 11200 HP of enemy tank in a Tier VI match... Terrifying. Absolutely terrifying.
>I missed five threads over the past weekWell, I'm here now I guess
>>33178710Das is was Archiv ist für
>>33178828It absolutely is, that's what I did before coming here
Guys, how do you git gud on the T20? They said it was the best tier 7 med, but I can't get it to work. Same with the Patton, can't seem to git gud on those two.
>>33178995the best tank in the game, driven by a moron, can be beat by the worst tank, driven by Quickybaby. meditate on this, young one, and find your answer you shall.
>>33178995Flanking is good in the t20, it's fast, has a good top gun, and has a bouncy turret, it's been so long since I've had a T20, I can't remember much about it than that, sorry. See what Jingles/Quickybaby/etc have to say about it on youtube?
>>33179035TLDR; Git gud
>>33179035...pay Quickybaby to play your account for a week?
>>33179062Bingo.>>33179063that shall work as well.
You spend a while longer answering questions- most of it is pretty trivial or very loosely tied to the day's match. It's actually sort of tiring. It's actually a pretty long while before someone askes another good question. Another Japanese reporter, this time. "How do you feel about Oorai's chances in this season's Senshado Tournament? Do you think they can win?""Absolutely." You say, without hesitating. "We've got great tanks, we've got several aggressive and motivated crews, and we have a world-class team commander." You nod towards Miho. "I'm not saying we're the likely bet- we're the underdogs for sure. But I wouldn't bet against us, either. I think we're going to surprise a lot of people in this tournament."You look over at Miho, nod and then turn to Anzu, who shrugs. "Done?" She asks, simply. You nod back to her and she stands up and begins calming the crowd as they rush to bombard you with last second questions and you and then Miho get up to leave.>Talk with Miho.>Talk with Ami.>Find crew.>Other.
>>33179035Maybe its my playstyle, I guess? I mean, I have a slightly better winrate on my Panther (53-ish) than the T20 (51-ish). For a slightly more skewed comparison, I have a relatively good(?) WR on my E-50 (54), but then an absolutely abysmal rating on the Patton (46, I shit you not).
>>33179119>Talk with Miho.>Talk with Ami."ok, debrief time. how did I do?"
>>33179154Maybe when you start writing them.
>>33179154When you write it
>>33179119>otherI need something to drink.
>>33179180>>33179175I meant in WoT
>>33179154soon.Not included on future firefly line, unfortunately. So maybe as premium?
>>33179119>Talk with Ami.
>>33179192In the Commonwealth tree. Eventually.
>>33179154I still have EVERYTHING you ave ever written under that title.You still have a Rose pic to make.>>33179192Around the same time as they get introduced in WarThunder. In the VERY distent future.
>>33179192ah, find relevant FTR QA- the Sentinel Australian tank might be “introduced one day, not in 2014 though” (SS: according to what Chieftain said earlier, Sentinel will not be a part of the LL “Firefly” branch, so it’s possible it will come later)
>>33179212I might do the Rose thing later, but stuff on another website is distracting me atm
>>33179136Well, the secret to most American tanks is the terrain abuse and positioning- since it sounds like you're doing a lot better with the German mediums, which generally have much better frontal armor but weaker gun depression, my guess is that you expose your US mediums too much.US Mediums should always be played from hardcover- hills, destroyed walls, dead tanks- your hull is very squishing but your turret is much harder- combined that with your great gun depression and US mediums become some of the best positional fighters in the game- fast enough to get to aggressive positions early-on and then pull back behind the heavy push when the enemy starts getting too aggressive. At this point you've got plenty of DPM to support the heavy and assault TDs as they make their push. Later in the game, as the enemy tanks are thinned out, you can start using your maneuverablity to flank the remaining enemy forces and put your DPM to devestating effect.
>>33179240...well, my Persh record has 3% higher WR than my Panther II, and they both have around 250-ish matches. Huh, now that I'm taking a look at my stats, I don't know what the hell my playstyle is anymore.
>>33179274I know that feeling! haha
>>33179119>Talk with Miho.>Talk with Ami.>Find crew.everything since almost no one's voting.
>>33179119>Talk with Miho.>Talk with Ami.>Find crewIn that order, I suppose.
>>33179119in sequence:>Find Crewmake sure they don't do anything stupid with press still aroundand then>Find Miho>Find Ami
>>33179119>>Talk with Miho.>>Talk with Ami.>>Find crew.
>>33179324>>33179344>>33179351I don't really care the sequence, just that they all get done.
Why Ami though? What do we need to talk about with our rarely present instructor?Is it supposed to be Anzu and Ami is just a typo?
>>33179373debriefing: what we did right/wrong, how Shiho might take this, etc.
>>33179373Why not? We rarely get the chance to talk to her anyway. Might as well, right?
>>33179373We could ask her where the hell she's been, I suppose.
>>33179373Well remember in this quest she was the one who actually finagled our transfer to Oorai
>>33179119>>Talk with Ami.We see Miho frequently enough, same with the crew, dis bitch hasn't been around for months I think
>>33179240Post time BJ.
>>33179760Yeah. A promised stare down with The Shiho was put in last time, it should be happening for this thread.
>>33179820yay. since this is in private, should we be defiant, professional, or smug. either way, we should ask what will become of Erika.
As you walk to look over at Ami. You give her a grin. "So- Instructor, how did I do?" You ask. In her usual etherial way, she responds with a question. "How do you think you did?" You hate that game- but you'll play it for the moment."I think two tanks went in, and one came out. That speaks for itself- though I bet you've got a more critical analysis?" You insinuate. Ami gives a short laugh and pauses for a second."I think that many tankers are obsessed with their eyes- what they can see. You won the match because you were able to use more of the information at your disposal." She pauses for a moment, standing still- it takes you half a step to stop. "Erika is used to working in a group- having many eyes in many directions and a lot of noise and interference besides. She only used her eyes and because of that you had a tremendous advantage over her.""So I did well?" You say, fishing for the compliment."Don't get a big head just yet, Hero." She says, winking at you. "You didn't see it, but Erika was checking crossroads one-by-one. You got lucky that she didn't catch you crossing. And that first shot- amazing as it was that Rose his them, was a waste of time.""So..." You say, cocking your head a bit. "I did..."She gives another short laugh. "You did was what required."
