Miho's Panzer IV slowly drifts to a stop, a thick trail of oily black smoke drifting upwards from the ruined engine compartment. As it creaks to a halt a small white flag springs up from the top of the turret.You are the commander of the M26E1 Pershing Heavy Tank "Black Jack" and as you watch your team's commander's tank smoke and smolder, Darjeeling's Black Prince rounds the corner at a stately pace. You blink once and then pounce into action. The Glorianna commander had made a crucial mistake- you might not be the best team player, and the rest of your team might be green, but she's let this battle evolve into a duel and that is your bread and butter."Richard, reverse back, get the hill between us." Black Jack is not the most nimble of tanks, but compared to the 50-ton Black Prince it was a sprite. Immediately, Black Jack reverses back around the square's central hill, you keep the turret squarely on Glorianna's last tank.You'd have a shot before them, but it was AP in the tube and you'd need HVAP to guarantee a kill."Up!">Aim for the turret- a lucky shot my blind them or damage their weapons.>Aim for the hull- Try for a lucky kill.>Aim for the tracks- a mobility kill will buy you time to get some range.
Welp, so much for sleeping
Aim for the turret. Let's trust Rose's aim
>>25477273>Aim for the Hull, we can penetrate 132mm of sloped armor at 500m with normal AP and we are at point blank, we can kill it now.
>>25477332Also to add on this is flat armor not sloped so it will be even easier to penetrate.
>>25477273>Aim for the tracks- a mobility kill will buy you time to get some range.Easier, less likely to fail.
>>25477273Try for the turret ring. Being a low mobility tank, killing it's ability to rotate it's turret makes it harder for it to aim. Especially if the turret is off center...
>>25477450I doubt range will do us much good in urban combat. Still, I know where you're coming from there.
I hope, if we win, Darjeeling in Anglerfish costume catches our interest. She is one of the few non-Ooari girls I would not mind our character ending up with.
>>25477273>Aim for the hull. At this distance given the power of our gun, any shot will kill the Black Prince. Remember it only has 152 mm of armor and it isnt sloped.
>>25477273>Aim for the hull- Try for a lucky kill.Also, HAHA, TONKS, ect
>>25477273>Aim for the tracks- a mobility kill will buy you time to get some range.REMOVE CRUMPET
>>25477273Mein gott, look at ze zeit>>25477332This

Zeit für Panzerkampf!>>25477273>Aim for the tracks- a mobility kill will buy you time to get some range.
put a hole through their hull. Both sides.http://books.google.com/books?id=x-2NpzhY4j4C&pg=PT8&lpg=PT8&dq=75mm+M3+Penetration&source=bl&ots=IMA9SjHAgC&sig=d30I3255v2Tp89RdjNavjEwZAc8&hl=en&sa=X&ei=hR6-UbjZJcrL0wGB6oDwDA&ved=0CHgQ6AEwCQWe have the T54, it ain't no thing.
>>25477273>Aim for the hull
>>25477273>Aim for the hull- Try for a lucky kill.
>>25477536Vier Uhr morgens zentraler Reichszeit, Herr Kommandant.Werden Sie Ihr Frühstück auf dem Panzer einnehmen?
>>25477796Ja, das ist gut.
You do the math in your head- the armor piercing round will defeat 130mm of thirty-degree sloped armor at five-hundred meters- the Black Prince probably has frontal armor thicker than 130mm, but it's not sloped and you're nearly point-blank. "Richard, hold. Gun on target, Rose. Hull shot." It might work."Got it." She says, shift the aim downward slightly as Richard brings Black Jack to a stop. "Firing." The entire tank shakes with the power of the T15 main gun- the shot is dead-on accurate into the frontal plate of the Black Prince."Roy, load HVAP. Richard keep going, get us around the corn-" You're interrupted by Patrick patching an outside broadcast up into your headphones."-rince is disabled. Glorianna Girls Academy has no available tanks. Oorai High School is victorious."You blink. Opening up the commander's hatch you stand out and look over at the Black Prince, a neat hole punched through the outer-armor, the shell only stopped from entering the crew compartment by the internal safety armor.The Black Prince's commander hatch opens with a short belch of dust and smoke before Darjeeling climbs out, a stunned look on her face and a noticable tea-stain down the front of her blouse.>"Good game.">"Alright over there?">Gloat.>Check in on the rest of our team.
>>25477875>Alright over there?We are polite winners.And see, Blackjack can change from the animu.
>>25477875>"Good game.">"Alright over there?"We gentlemen

>>25477875>"Good game.">Check in on the rest of our team.WE HAVE REMOVED CRUMPET FROM PREMISES. Also let's be amicable about wining, practice match and all.
>>25477875>"Alright over there?"I think it's important to note that it penetrated the outer armor and was only stopped by the internal safety armor. As in, they came pretty close to dying.
>>25477875>>"Good game.">>"Alright over there?">>Gloat.>>Check in on the rest of our team.A little of all four, please. A very little of #3. We're gentlemen, afterall.
>>25477875>"Alright over there?"
>>25477903I wouldn't if the axis had won WW2, now would I?
>>25477869Wir haben leider nur noch Knäckebrot und Leberwurst da, aber wenn wir es heute etwa fünf Kilometer weit schaffen, können wir in der nächsten Stadt neue Vorräte aufnehmen.
>>25477875>only stopped from entering the crew compartment by the internal safety armor.I'm not too well-versed in the lore surrounding the setting, but I though that the shells and armor were designed like the MILES system used by the US Army, and that the shells were never meant to actually penetrate, and that computers were supposed to handle all of the necessary calculations.Are tank shells really supposed to penetrate the armor like that?
>>25477875>[x]Gloat"Let Freedom Ring"
>>25477875>gloatmaybe if you left some dirt on the outside, you wouldn't have messed up the inside!>"Good game."still a good game, you really pushed us ya know.then>"Alright over there?"no one hurt on your side?
>>25477981>but I though that the shells and armor were designed like the MILES systemnope.Carbon fiber magical bullshit coatings. not that it stops crew-compartment fires
>>25477981Go with "We were fucking point blank with a really big bitching gun" and don't think to hard.
>>25477960Zumindest ist es nicht sauerkraut.Day 3, they still haven't caught on that I'm not a german
>>25478013Tommy cooking killed the shit out of loads of crews, surely.
>>25477875>Gloat.THAT'S FOR BURNING DOWN WASHINGTON D.C. THE LAST TIME YOU FOUGHT WITH US!
>>25478076I thought that was the Canadians?
>>25477875>>"Good game.">>"Alright over there?"
>>25478076But these are japanese Britaboos. Also that was the Canadians
Come on, let's not gloat let's take priority first.Kill Anzu (maybe Momo as well)Then celebrate
I don't think we should gloat at all. It stings a lot more if you're quiet and reserved about your win.
>>25478076I thought it was Canadian troops that did that.
>>25478076That was the canadians, not the britsNEW WORLD PRIDE!>>25478067nope.because magic. Like the aircraft carrier schools
>>25477930adding my vote to this.
>>25478106back then, Canada WAS the brits. today, to punish the Canadiens, we'll just hand them back justin bieber and call it even
>>25477930Thirding.>>25478088>>25478105It was. But I can vouch that most American high schools just kinda gloss over the War of 1812 these days, even though it's a fascinating bit of history.>>25478151Dude, don't try to stir up shit with our Northern bros. They're cool guys, and JTF2 and the Mounties don't afraid of anything.
>>25478151LA LA LA LA NEVER LOST TO BRITAIN CANADIANS WORTHY ADVERSARIES LA LA LA LA
>>25478099YES! Anzu and Momo push be punished for nearly losing this match!that and the freshmen team as well for desertion in facing the enemy!
>>25478037It's quite easy to tell as any native would have used 'kein' instead of 'nicht' in this context.And for >>25477869, I would have used an entirely different response. I had not provided an insightful idea but asked my superior whether he would continue a habit he probably showed repeatedly before. Thusly, a natural response would have been short to confirm or deny and either comment on the reason for this or specified the breakfast awished.>>25478113Naturally I do.Aber sprichst du auch Ordnung?
>>25478177I loved my high school. Then I got out and realized it had done shit for my life.
>>25478177the war of 1812 is a better thing to gloss over than what happened with the native americans or VietFUCKINGnam.
>>25478177>>25478179hey! they started it with unleashing J. B. and Celine Dion on us. those are crimes ageinst humanity there.
>>25478247What about Polk's American-Mexican War?That usually gets glossed over even more than the War of 1812.
>>25478280Touche (as I haven't really heard of it really)
>>25478280Sad part is, I've always felt that wars in general are glossed over.I was pissed off when my American History class barely even mentioned the actual war yet went on and on about the Holocaust.Or maybe that's just my inner armchair-general poking it's head out.Related, I really wish my college had a teach for the Second World War class.Because that is a class that I would never miss. Ever.
>>25478275there are more like them here.http://danbooru.donmai.us/pools/6300
>>25478314I took one of those. Best Class Ever.
>>25478335That class and German are the two that I desperately want to take. Yet neither one has been offered yet. Maybe next year
>>25478280oh heck, man, they never taught you about the Toledo War we had did you?I have given up that our schools these days just pass junk as an education.
>>25478350If you have a great teache it's totally worth it. I learned so much even though I thought I knew everything already.Like how much crazier Hitler was than I already thought. Or my teachers awesome explanation of why the Germans had lost by December of 41.
>>25478353more like history than modern politcs now.
>>25478362TOLEDO BELONGS TO OHIO MICHIGAN FAGS!
>>25478220Ja. Ich wollte fragen, ob du Tee hast, aber die anderen Anon gepostet ersten.Ugh, mein Deutsch is schlect.Man, sollte ich ins Deutschland fahren wieder. Berlin war die beste.
>>25478374it would explain the football rivalry they have these days...
>>25478387Lol, yes that's actually how it started. A near battle over Toledo.
>>25478365The bad thing about taking a class like that, is that I think I would get into a ton of arguments. Because I generally hold strange opinions.Like the fact that I think Hitler wasn't that bad of a leader. He was just a shitty general.Also, that the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are completely justified.
>>25478369the BEST 4koma GuP around
>>25478362History class isnt supposed to cover every war. its supposed to cover the major events that lead to today, and you try teaching several hundred years of history in less than a year. History classes are there so that people at least have a general idea of how we went from apes in africa to the modern world and that means focusing on peace as much as war.
>>25478212Well a lighter punishment for them, just making them used to combat under fire/Afterall we only had a couple of days worth of training.
>>25478365>If you have a great teache it's totally worth it.My 12th grade teacher stated on day 1 that Washington was a terrible general. 1/4th of the class was enraged at the lack of patriotism and 1/2 the remainder were somewhat shockedit was one of the best history classes I have ever taken
>>25478402Hitler was arguably a good leader, but really was a great speaker which was what got him to leadership.But the dude was deranged even before the war. "Living Space" as he called it included all of Russia up to the Urals. And he wanted to populate it entirely with Germans. After killing all the Russians. Germany didn't have the people to populate such an area, not even close. And really, the German Army wasn't that great.Sorry, ranting in thread is bad I know.
>>25478452Their deaths will set the example for the others.
>"Good game.">"Alright over there?"In English.
>>25478362Was that the war between Ohio and Michigan?I vaguely remember that. Then there was the Whiskey Rebellion; that we actually covered a little, because it was used as a precedent when we covered the Civil War.
>>25478518Yeah. But the "War" if you want to call it that, had no casualties involved and was fought mostly in Congress.
>>25478452Anzu and Momo ust do the Dance. Anzu with held vital information from us AND she paited our tank blue! (meta game, she knows even more)Momo disobeyed orders at the first ambush and nearly fired on our own team mates! plus, who allowed her to aim the tank gun anyway?
>>25478588Might have well have Yuzu do it as well for obvious reasons (I suspect she wouldn't mind, following the leader and all)
>>25478609Offer her a pass if she wants; Her driving was excellent as always.
>>25478625agreed. let her eat chips with us as we watch Anzu and Momo do the dance
>>25478654>chipsInsufficiently Southern.Pork Rinds.
>>25478672And sip mint juleps?I'm down for that
>>25478654While all the eyes are on the anglerfishes, we drag the twerp onto a dark alley and beat the snot outta 'er.
>>25478692Mint juleps are alcoholic, we'd probably get in trouble with the school board, being a guest and all.So, sweet tea instead.
>>25478518the bleeding Kansas fights were bloody and visious indeed. but little is taught about them these days.
>>25478700Please don't.I'm all for punishing her, because goodness knows she needs it.But beating her? That's a bit much.
>>25478712Right.Somehow, I forgot that.So much for me being a southerner. I must commit sudoku via too much fried chickenSweet tea it is
>>25478712how about cheerwine instead? (btw, it's not wine, but soda)
>>25478715I know. The Civil War started in 1857, dammit.
>>25478378>Ja. Ich wollte fragen, ob du Tee hast, aber die anderen Anon gepostet ersten.'aber die anderen Anons haben zuerst geposted'>Ugh, mein Deutsch is schlect.Deine Rechtschreibung lässt zu wünschen übrig, ja.>Man, sollte ich ins Deutschland fahren wieder. Berlin war die beste.'Mann, ich sollte wieder nach' Also, a construction like 'X ist das Beste' is usually avoided on pain of sounding like an idiot. I would suggest 'Berlin hat mir am besten gefallen' or 'Berlin war sehr schön' to avoid a plump global superlative. Those may be good custom -if not superior form- in Japanese and English, but are frowned upon in the context of German as they imply a lack of comparable experience or reflection. They essentially force anyone with a different opinion to openly contradict you so you limit your statement to either your own experiences and perceptions, formulate a non-superlative phrase or narrow down the scope of the superlative.Yes, I am using commas as I see fit and not always as official grammar intends it. Problem, officer?
You leans forward over the rim of the commander's hatch. "Hey! Darjeeling!" You say, snapping her back to attention. "I think your tank might need a bit of a wash." You say, wry grin on your face. "Seems it might have gotten a bit dirty." Yeah, you're gloating, but after what she'd said before the match, what was she expecting?"Oh, I... I see." She says, running a finger over the top of her vanquished heavy tank. She still looks a bit stunned before she straightens up and nods at you. "I underestimated your tank and it's crew. In fact, your entire team performed better than anyone would've ever expected."You nod at her appreciatively. "Thanks. It was a great fight- good game." You finally look back over at Miho's PzIV- She and her crew had wisely stayed buttoned up until the fight was over. >"Miho! Told you I didn't like losing!">"How are the other crews?"
>>25478748we've had enough tea for awhile. try some cheerwine.
Man since she is asian the best way to give her a lesson the best way to teach her a lesson that will stay with her is to publically shame her and make her lose face. we should at some point calmly dress momo down in front of the rest of the team and remind her of how she has failed her comrades with her reckless actions.
>>25478725Interesting enough, physical beatings in Japanese high school athletic clubs are on the rise. And that's not including deaths due to over-exhaustion that coaches and faculty advisers cause.All things considered, the adviser for our club could probably kill us and she'd only get a 3 month suspension.
Rolled 6>>25478700NO!That is BLATANTLY unprofessional.A good DI won't beat your ass unless you decide to take a swing at him.We just need to KNIFE HANDS her.>>25478753Cheerwine is also acceptable.And how dare you imply I don't know what Cheerwine is? I CHALLENGE YOU! PISTOLS AT RIGHT THE FUCK NOW, YOU SHITBIRD!>>25478776>"How are the other crews?"
>>25478776>"How are the other crews?"
>"How are the other crews?"
>>25478776>"How are the other crews?"Compassion first
>>25478776>"How are the other crews?"A good leader should always look to his men first. Or his women, in this case.
>>25478776>"How are the other crews?"The I-Go crew performed much better than expected, and the History Club and their StuG did actually impress us with that little ruse, though getting taken out by that last Comet was disappointing.
>>25478815You know, I've never really seen Cheerwine as being a southern thing.If anything, I've seen it more relating to Yankees then anything else.'Course, I don't really live in the deep, deep South or anything, so there's that
>>25478776check in on Miho and her crew. then check in with the others. hey BlackJack GM, was this fight telavised we just had (in universe, or at least videoed taped so we all can watch all that everyone did later?)
>>25478776"Miho, how are the other crews."
>>25478776How are the other crews
>>25478776>"How are the other crews?"DAMAGE REPORT
>>25478849It's mostly a Carolinas thing in my experience.
>>25478849i haven't seen Cheerwine north of the mason-dixon line. i HAVE seen Frago and Squirt being up north ONLY.
>>25478888indeed. sweet-tea on the other hand is universally southern, at least in the civilized parts
>>25478888Huh. And that makes it even more odd that I've never really made the connection.Maybe I'm just blind.'Course, it could also be because most everyone around here drinks coke and pepsi.
>>25477875>Check in on the rest of our team.>"Alright over there?">"Good game.">GloatIn order.
>>25478907Admittedly, my experience is limited. I've never been OUTSIDE the Carolinas for more than a week.
>>25478776>"How are the other crews?"While asking how Miho and her crew held up.
>>25478961>Dat turret angleAra ara! I'm a married tank!
>>25479020It's not a light tan... Wait. What?
>>25479056Call me a tankette-con all you will, but I like some linght tank on SHILF action.Super-Heavy I'd Like to Fight in
>>25479174Eh. I like a tank with some angles, know what I mean? Rather then just being a big box on treads like that hussy the Maus.And beyond that, I too lean towards the heavier end. Mmm, Tiger.
>How are the crews?In other news, do you hate reddit, furries and ponyfags?Do you want to drop Mauses on them and take their land?Do you want to do something besides pub all day?Then join GUP. Remove cutiemark.http://www.youtube com/watch?v=Y9vMwwYaDEc
>>25479174>not liking chubbies
>>25479201But the Tiger is a big box too.The Panther though, that Pz. had angles for days. Mmmmmmmmmmm...
>>25479253Not as boxy as the Maus though.Which is the point.Add to that the fact that the Tiger has bits and bobs on the outside. It actually looks like a complete tank, rather then something a kid would draw. Because that's what the Maus looks like. Big, boxy and made up of mostly free space.
>>25479217>E-100 goes 30km/h on even ground.Shit, my Panther can barely outrun that. Luckily it won't have to see tier X'es.
>>25479290Am I too boxy for you as well, Kommandant-kun?WAAAAH!! KOMMANDANT-KUN HATES ME!!
>>25479290And the Maus was exactly as shitty as it looked.I mean in the design meetings, Heinz Guderian, Germany's number one guy when it came to tank warfare, tried to talk sense into the retards, explaining that it's too big, too slow, and useless against infantry, among MANY other problems. But they blew him off. So after a while of that, he basically gave up, and sat in the back of the room sipping coffee and drawing dicks on his scrap paper.Okay, so I made up the part about dicks. Maybe. Let's be honest here, Guderian was a military man, he probably drew his share of bathroom stall dicks in his time.
>>25479384>Heinz Guderian drawing dicks while Hitler brags about the MausNow that I've seen it, I can't unsee it.
>>25479445You are now picturing Guderian writing "Adolf loves the cock" on the bathroom stall walls in the Eagle's Nest.Rommel was more a fan of the old "Look right" on the left wall "Look left" on the right wall stunt.
>>25479510he was quite the ruseman
>>25479510And he was sure, no matter what the girls said, barrel length fucking mattered.He could get quite ballistic about the topic.
Pulling yourself up out of the turret, you slide down onto the hull and climb to the ground. Miho is helping Yukari and Saori down from tank- a wisp of smoke and soot stains on their faces attest to a small fire that must've broken out when they took the hit the engine. Richard is already up and out of the driver's position and you jog over to the disabled Panzer IV.Richard immediately embraces Saori as Miho helps Hana and Mako down out of the tank. You finally get her attention. "Commander," You say with a grin. "Thanks for the save- that Comet had us dead." Miho blushes. "I just wish I could've helped more..."You grin at her. "You guys did plenty! How are the other crews?""They're all fine- Rabbit crew got behind some rocks and waited for the fight to pass them over..."Without warning a hand claps on your back. "You won!" Anzu says cheerfully. "Excellent job- You are already earning your keep!">"Anzu, may I have a word with you?" >"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?">"No thanks to you."
>>25479658>"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?"
>>25479658>So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?"Can't risk looking weak to an outsider. Even if it is Darjeeling.Wait until we get back to lay into Anzu
>>25479658>"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?"Wouldn't want anyone unmarriagable.
>>25479658>"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?"Let's address the Anzu problem off the battlefield. Let's not let St. Gloria in on our small problem.
>>25479658>"No thanks to you."I think we've passed our anger limit with regards to Anzu and are now heading straight for disdain and scorn.
>>25479658>"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?"we can discuss the match at the next meeting.
>>25479658>"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?">OTHER: "But I think you and your crew should be doing the dance for nearly taking out Miho, and firing without orders."
>>25479658>"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?"Never show your enemies even a glimpse of weakness.
>>25479715second. we can deal with her when the classy ladies are out of sight
>>25479728>"But I think you and your crew should be doing the dance for nearly taking out Miho, and firing without orders."This, and also add"Withholding CRITICAL, NEED-TO-KNOW INFORMATION"
>>25479737Speaking of classy ladies, we should go ask Darjeeling on a date before they leave on their huge-ass ship.
>>25479737Because what's coming for her won't be either elegant nor classy.
>>25479658>>"No thanks to you."
>"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?">"Anzu, may I have a word with you?"
>>25479755No, because that should come up in the post-battle debriefing meeting in front of the entire club, not in front of St. Gloria who are still here.
>>25479217Don't you want to be a part of this, /tg/?http://www.youtube com/watch?v=1fDM4KTEIXE
>>25479715Eh it would have more effect if we shamed them publically cause you know, the loss of face and all that.>"But I think you and your crew should be doing the dance for nearly taking out Miho, and firing without order
>>25479796You suck for modifying the link so we can't watch embedded.
>>25479798Yeah, but we're still in front of people we don't want knowing our internal troubles, because they may pass that information on to other schools we have to fight.
>>25479825Dunno they were pretty good sports in the anime, cheering for Oorai in all their later matches.
>>25479825this this this. Holy shit, think for a second people. Do we REALLY want to them to be spreading stuff like that around about us?
>>25479778basically this but the second choice is off the battlefield.Show no weakness
>>25479658>"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance, but your team does for nearly smoking her tank during our attempted ambush?"
>>25479876by your logic wouldn't even asking about the jellyfish dance be showing weakness?
>>25480014Fair enough These should be noted later
>>25480093My point is I don't think the other team is listening to us right now.
>>25480014Other anon here, but I don't think so.Humiliating and physically painful punishments for failure are an accepted part of Japanese High School Athletic Club activities. This would be seen as just another part of normal club activities, and may show just how "hardcore" our club is about victory.
"... And that's why I told their student council president about our new tanks, they don't stand a chance anyhow.""You're so full of shit Darjeeling-san."
>>25479658>"So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?"as well as>OTHER: "But I think you and your crew should be doing the dance for nearly taking out Miho, and firing without orders." as well as "Withholding CRITICAL, NEED-TO-KNOW INFORMATION"Kick Anzu's ass if she does anything but do the damn dance herself.
>>25480243Man, the Anzu-hate crew is in full swing again.
>>25479658>"Anzu, may I have a word with you?"
>>25480629...well if she would stop doing stuff to piss us off.
>>25480679I don't really mind the anger thing. It's justified. But then the dedicated GuP quest trolls come in and demand Anzu's blood. We don't need that.
>>25479658>So does this mean Miho's crew won't have to do the Jellyfish dance?"Let's play it cool, men.
>>25480629Maa maa, it's not that bad.
You turn and stare down at the Student Council president. "Yeah, we won. So that's the end of all this Jellyfish dance business?" You say, hardening your voice. Saori perks up at the mention of the evidently reputation-ruining dance."The Anglerfish Dance?" She corrects you as she reaches into her breast pocket and removes a bag of sweet potato chips. "'Fraid not, Commander."You blink. "We won. You said that-.""You won, Commander. Black Jack won. The rest of the team hardly did anything- if you weren't here we wouldn't have done a thing." You pulls a chip from the bag and starts nibbling. "However, as I see it this was a group failure- so the rest of the crews will be doing the Anglerfish Dance. Shared responsiblity, shared punishment."Behind her, Momo gloats silently. "That includes our crew, Momo." Anzu says."What?! I-I can't-" Face falling."We'll discuss it at the debriefing later." Anzu says with a tone of voice that implies that there will be no discussion. You look back towards Miho's crew- Miho herself looks confused, while Saori is weeping into Richard's shoulder. >"That isn't fair! You don't get to just change the rules like that!">To the debriefing then...>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!
>>25480980>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!Backyard Southern-style barbecue?Backyard Southern-style barbecue.
>>25480980>"That isn't fair! You don't get to just change the rules like that!"You won't like gaijin when he's angry.
>>25480755Anzu and the other higher ups have shown many times that even though they say they want a team to "WIN", they instead have shown they are not putting full effort (be it tanks, funds, or materials) into getting the team fully battle ready. they have also proven to with hold important information about our opposing teams AND our own situation. The bottem line is that Anzu (and her crew) has shown a team killing mix of lack of trust and team work. along side the lack of time to practice and understand the performance of the tanks and their crew is also not helping. This has to be corrected and fast! with Miho and the MC taking total (or near enough) control away from the bumbling and arrogent president.
>>25480980"No."Cold Fury rising.
>>25480980>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!
>>25480980>That's not fair!I am so full of hate. But more realistically,>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!Let's see if we can get one of Anzu's aides to pay for it, too. They're usually pretty cool. El Presidente isn't invited until she reneges on the dance.
>>25480980https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6Ek3h4HTRE>So, what, are we going to do it too then? We're on the team too.
>>25480980>"Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!"Plan "Undermine Anzu" is a go! C'mon, we're /tg/! Shouldn't we be creative when it comes to vengeance?
>>25480980>OtherSeeing as it was Anzu's fault that is was a 'group failure', she should be the one to do the Anglerfish dance, all alone, up on stage by herself
>>25480980To the debriefing thenThen during said debriefing try to point out the faults of each crew but try to save Miho and Rommel's group since they were the competent ones
>>25478013>>25477981 Actually it's a little of both. They explain in one of the shorts/extras that there's an onboard sensor that calculates the energy of impact. And of course there's the liner that's mentioned in the TV series proper.
>>25481018Seconding the barbeque. Show these girls some American hospitality!
>>25480980>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!We will deal with Anzu eventually. Just we need to not destory any morale gained from the victory.
>>25480980>>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!This is dickish even by your standards.
>>25480980>>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!We blew that shit out of the park. Party time.
>>25480980>"That isn't fair! You don't get to just change the rules like that!""Demoralize the team after a close victory? That's really low, even for you. C'mon! Give them some credit here!"
>>25480980>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!Disregard incompetent authorities acquire party
>>25480980>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!Lets celebrate! I mean, the Anglerfish Dance can't be THAT bad right? Plus Anzu's crew will have to do it too, she said so herself. If she's willing to share the pain then we'll give her a pass on this one.
>>25480980>>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!I'll give Anzu this, she's willing to take the plunge like the rest of them.
>>25481029This. It started as her being obnoxious, but it's starting to effect our capacity to fight. And now she's taking away our celebratory not-being-punished? Seriously, she keeps making terrible decisions, from antagonizing the ace SHE pulled from out of the country, to hiding useful information, to making important decisions with no input from the people who know what they're doing. She needs to stop getting her way.
>>25481018i'm thinking Memphis style barbecue this time. not to knock caraliona style, but i'm feeling a nice tasty and MESSY barbecue is in order.
>>25480980Wait.Wait.Wait.She had a whole bagful of chips in a breast pocket?Either she has such a flat chest it has created some sort of negative space akin to a bag of holding, or it looked very ridiculous.
>>25480980>DebriefingOur actions here are completely incoherent. Not a thread or two ago we were going on about punishing the Rabbit team but now we're happy to ditch everything because Anzu.
>>25480980"Will SOMEONE tell me what the fuck this Anglerfish Dance is already?!"
>>25481068I also say give some cred to the volleyball team, they at least helped in IDENTIFYING the Comets Anzu 'forgot' to mention
>>25480980>Screw Anzu, these girls deserve some kind of celebration!They really do
>>25481029>>25481115Can't we go to the person running the school? I mean this shit has gotten out of hand.
>>25480980"As much as I hate to admit it, This was not down to BlackJack. Erwin staged a successful ambush dropping the enemies combat capabilities, And without Miho's squads assistance, they would have knocked us out... The only tank which the other squads would have found destroying borderline impossible was the Prince. This victory came from the whole team, not just us.""I feel that a small celebration is in order for the new crew's completion of their trial by fire!"
>>25481116more sauce = more opportunity for cheesecake.I support this.We shall become the sauss bauss
>>25481018Thirding barbecue.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uUQBC3J-7YWe should make it a tradition to invite our fallen enemies to join us in our Southern version of Valhalla.And when we beat Pravda, we can play them a SPECIAL song:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKD7g56DNN0
>>25481168IIRC Anzu basically runs the school, despite being obnoxious.
>>25481137I want this.also Debrief as much as I dislike Anzu (I really do) least she's willing to to the dance.
>>25481182so thats why they are going bankrupt and are entirely useless at everyfuckingthing
>>25481176But we don't PLAY slide guitar.
>>25479796Where do I sign up?
>>25481182...How the fuck is this school still open
>>25481224you know what the solution is, yes?
>>25481199No no, she's in charge because they're going bankrupt.Budget cuts resulted in firing almost the entire administration.
>>25481224>>25481199Because she's actually good at running the school. Being honest and not a dickwad is something she needs to work on.
>>25481018Trip-hop hawaiian luau with roast pig
>>25481224Well...It might not be, soon
>>25481134the rabbit team is lacking bravery, yes, but i can chuak that up to being green. they should be punished appropretly but that is a lesser issue right now. Anzu knows better, however she is making bad choices far too many times. choices that could doom this team and the school real quick.
>>25481250We're not Hawaiian.We're a Southron.That means barbecue and Southern Rock.We get to have our falling in love montage with Kay to .38 Special.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zg21Rkew874
>>25481265They panicked under fire like any rookie would. There is a lot of room for potential in those six; they just need some positive reinforcement is all.
>>25481250NOMemphis style BIG AZZ whole pig (or more, or even who beef sides) pit barbecue with rub and mopping sause! even if we have to cook that bad boy all night!
>>25481309Dude, I assume you chose the wrong pic, cause a stryker with nothing but a m2 as weaponry would get fucked up so quick.
>>25481265We give Rabbit Team the "Son, I ain't mad at you, just disappointed. But I know you won't disappoint me like that again. Now let's get back out there." conversation that is the ULTIMATE weapon in the arsenal of a true master DI.
>>25481265This. Let's celebrate our good fortune now, and if we do decide to punish the Rabbit crew then it'll be with extra practice so they get used to being in the line of fire.We punish Anzu by going off of her rails and having a good time right now. We will have a briefing eventually though, where we get to explain our displeasure at her leading style.
>>25481343Rabbit Crew get target duty when we do precision shooting training...or attempting to get Momo to hit something...
>>25481250As much as Japan loves Hawaii, and as good as Laulau is, I don't think we know how to make a proper imu.
>>25481340still needs knif hands though. It's tradition, after all
>>25481390Well of course. But it's the low knife hand, the one that's not even in their field of view if their heels are locked.
>>25481390what kind of tradition!?Anything more than making them practice/train is excessive.
>>25481376the chance that Momo can be trained to hit a target is the same chance that Anzu growing a natural set of double D chest.
>>25480980"No, Anzu. Your bullshit stops NOW."Personally, I'd like to spank Anzu in public over our bended knee right in front of the whole club.The sad thing is, as much as I dislike her, I particularly dislike how Blackjack is deliberately trying to make us hate her, then (I fully expect) her to throw some "see, I'm brilliant and crap, watch me pull this out" thing in her debriefing.It's making me very frustrated with how this whole quest is being written, because I don't even want to hate her in the first place.
>>25481474But if we don't hate her, then how could we have furious hatesex?You need to get your priorities straight.
>>25481461Then clearly we need to get Momo accuracy training and hope for two miracles to occur.
>>25481173>>25481173>>25481173That first part, right there. The entire team won this one, not just us.Momo and the freshmen can still do the Anglerfish Dance.
>>25481173This one too. We gotta build up our team, not knock 'em down. In spite of the hiccups today, they've shown that they can get better. Let's just ignore Anzu and her dickery, hey?
>>25481497>But if we don't hate her, then how could we have furious hatesex?>You need to get your priorities straight.No, we don't want any sex with Anzu. Not with the version we are being presented, anyhow.Besides, we have more likable, and more capable waifus if we are wanting one.
>>25481294>>25481378>>25481324Ok, but we have to fill the space we're having it in with sand. And put some volleyball nets up. Lets see what the volleyball team can do.
>>25481599Such as Yukari?
We can totally do a carrot-and-stick here. Let Anzu dole out the punishment; we'll set up the barbie and the fun after the whole shebang.The girls will love it.
>>25481619>Recreational volleyball>With people who actually play the game as a sport
Your lack of Mako is disturbing.
>>25481712I support this sentiment. Additional Mako is always wonderful
>>25481626>Such as Yukari?She's the one that we've spent the most face time with, along with Miho, so I suppose the two are the front runners.Sad thing is, because Anzu keeps dicking around, we've ended up putting fires out more than we have been able to bond and try to improve the team.Hell, I'd probably have liked to explore the Anzu option if she wasn't such a dick. I'm still of the mind we're going to get some nonsense about this all being a test, or that Anzu has some suddenly brilliant fancy master plan she has cooked up.
>>25481712Hey Mako.Five AM daily wakeup for mandatory PT.You're gonna have to stop participating in Valk Mercs Quest all night and get some sleep. Because MC is an asshole who doesn't ever let anyone sleep. Poor Mako.
>>25481602complete side note. IS it possable to get Little Johns fitted onto our own tanks for the next fight?
>>25481754 no cause they only work with QF 2 guns
>>25481739>Five AM daily wakeup for mandatory PT.Will she have to wear her PT belt? What am I saying, of course she will.
>>25481647But muh tight shirts and bouciness...
>>25481754Not unless they use an Ordnance Quick-Firing 2-Pdr.>>25481776GLOW BELTS FOR EVERYONE!
>>25481781...And one of the freshmen with a bloody nose from a hard spike.
>>25481772>>25481799no one has ever attempted to use them on other guns? odd.
>>25481799IM SORRY, I DON'T SEE YOU WEARING A FUCKING GLOW BELT.
>>25481738Yeah Anzu's stunts really detract in general from teh quest and nowhere as funny as BlackJack thinks they are.
>>25481833The merricans tried them, they failed after a few shots.
>>25481833Because bigger guns and eventually APFSDS came along and rendered a fix to make a weak gun penetrate better obsolete.
>>25481833Well there is the conical 7,5 cm KwK 41 L/58I guess they wear out really fast
>>25481833They're kinda inefficient, use expensive tungsten ammo, and prevent the use of HE.They were a stopgap for the Poms until they could design a tank that could carry a larger gun.
>>25481833They literally won't fit.Unless you mean squeezebore adapters in general. In which case the Little John was only a stopgap, to extend the service life of the 2-Pounders past the point of their obsolescence. And none of the tanks Ooarai fields ever mounted a squeezebore adapter, so it'd be a rules violation even if we could make it work.
That ain't fair. "President- The StuG and PzIV crews both-" You begin; not every crew was completely up to par, but even without you it wouldn't have been a complete wash! "Ah!" Anzu puts her finger up to interrupt. "We'll discuss it at the debriefing."You seeth under your skin, but you know anger doesn't get anything out of Anzu, you have to play her game. "Then you won't mind if, for the team's victory, we go out for celebratory Ice Cream, then?" You say cooly. "Afterall, if the team shares our failures, then they should share our success.""Why not?" Anzu says, patting you on the shoulder. "Get me the receipt, the Student Council will pay for it." Anzu turns around as a group of vehicals finally gets to the scene to transport the participants and clear the wreckages. "Let the rest of the team know that Debriefing is in two hours. Momo? Anzu?" She says, getting into the side-seat of a jeep being driven by some senshado official. "Let's go."GRAGH! You were outmaneuvered again- just when you were trying to be the good guy she goes and makes it easier! "And I still have no clue what the Anglerfish Dance is!"
>>25481919>inb4 Next Time on QuPQ
>>25481919>Get me the receipt, the Student Council will pay for it.WE SHALL HAVE OUR REVENGE!Just make sure our Southern-style barbecue includes some ice cream, and we can rules lawyer her into paying for ALL OF IT.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4ujS1er1r0
Next time on Girls und Panzer!>Debriefing!>Ice cream!>What the hell is the council's problem anyway?!Girls und Panzer will return tomorrow between 5-6PM PST.Add me on Twitter for schedule updates and thread announcements!https://twitter.com/BlackJackGuPQYou may commence your conspiracy crafting and random tank talk!
>>25481949you totally called it good anon...
>>25481966>conspiracy craftingHE CONTINUES TO RAILROAD USSSSS!
>>25481966That was over fast. I guess it balances out with the last one being twice as long.
>>25482033Well, considering my work schedule this week involves only one non-opening shift and three days off, there's gonna be a lot of GuPQ this week.
>>25482033Betcha BJ had a good 5 post long battle all but written for the BP and then we just oneshot it. This is what we deserve.
>>25482007ur getin arest
>>25481919>"Ah!" Anzu puts her finger up to interrupt. "We'll discuss it at the debriefing.">You seeth under your skin, but you know anger doesn't get anything out of Anzu, you have to play her game.See, this is the crap I don't like. We make it clear we don't want something, we instead get "Ah ah, that's now how I'm writing it, she shuts you up."Whiiiich doesn't make sense, considering we have been shown to be quite loud and clear when we are unhappy.Everything going on is suggesting Anzu is going to have some fabulous plan, or some sob story to try and make us feel bad for her. I think the votes were quite clear about what we wanted, and despite our dislike of what Anzu is doing, we suddenly just let her do what she wants?Ugh. Sorry BlackJack, this is really just lazy writing and railroading.
>>25482056Glad to hear. Yoroshiku.
Uh... Hey, what would have happened if it had been a HVAP shot we'd fired, rather than the simple AP we had?Would it have penetrated further? Or started a fire? What?
>>25482093Yeah, its like he takes the winning choice, and then uses that as an excuse to lead into a premade piece o plotIts fucking annoying when we debate and discuss for ages, and then the winning vote has no impact nor even semblance to what we voted for.we clearly had certain expectation of what we voted for would ensue, and yet BJ completely twists it for his own purposes, BJ, if you're going to be a dick about it, at least make the options resemble the actual outcomes because all we're doing is voting to go east, and you make us go west, before spinning 720 degrees and falling off a cliff.
>>25482171Carbon lining stops it.
>>25481950I like the way you think, anon.
>>25482175To be fair, he was trying to wrap it up, and that's hard to do in only one post. Doesn't excuse it, though.
>>25482171Only difference is the chip in the shell telling the computer how much it penetrated.
>>25482007yet we keep riding along.
>>25482078>implying BJ writes ahead.
>>25482275"All but written" would imply that he has it worked out in his head, and not yet written it out, no?
>>25482093>>25482175I agree with both of you but you know he'll never address it...
>>25482325and thats even more infuriating
>>25482344Welcome to what happens when you have people willingly defending lazy writing and the author doesn't care.
Girls und Panzer Quest:40% World of Tanks50% Rage10% story
>>25482436Not enough % Mako
>>25482491Or Yukari for that matter.
>>25482491>>25482513Nor ErwinOr other waifuable girl of your choice
I want to get in touch with Blackjack and ask him why he's writing a quest and posting to /tg/ instead of writing a fanfic and posting to FF.net.Yes, we won this fight, yes, we'd have probably lost/extended if we went for something other than "Fuckit, point-blank 90mm AP", but I feel like outside of tactical choices and deciding who to interact with (Find Yukari/Miho/Erwin/X), there's not really anything.Next Time on GuPQ is a bit of that - I feel like Blackjack already has it written out, at least in vague terms - This, This, and This happen. We cannot change tha--- I know exactly what to call this. I feel like I'm reading a CYOA, not playing a game.Is there some sort of IRC? Steam? Somewhere I can talk to Blackjack that isn't Here?
>>25482811>grown up ErwinAdorable.
>>25482829You realise that BlackJack is not the only one who plans an outline for his sessions?Heck, GhostDivision does the same, it's one of the reasons he does it once per week.
>>25482856yes, but his plans revolve around the choices of his participants, BJ's do not
>>25482865Really?Do you have any definitive proof that this would've ended in a victory no matter what?
>>25482910not either of the anon you arguing with, but do you have any definitive proof to prove otherwise? no, its pointless arguing for it
>>25482934So you don't have proof that this could've only ended in victory?I mean I'm not sure why I'm arguing this actually, if BJ comes out and confirms it you guys will just bitch like when we lost to Miho due to paranoia.
>>25482856Yes, I know. Every GM has an outline planned, not all of them tell us. I just feel like I can't significantly deviate FROM the outline.My fundamental question to Blackjack is "If the majority of the thread says 'Fuck this, we're going to Saunders'", would he write it?The entire point of rolling dice and pretending to be wizards (as opposed to Vidya or Books) is the ability to say to your party members "Fuck this, let's go do something completely different" and turn "Fight The Evil Necrolich" into "Sky Pirates" because sky pirates are objectively awesome. I digress, but basically I feel like GuPQ could easily be a fanfiction. A half-decent one too. Despite my complaints, Blackjack is a decent writer, and though I feel like he's doing anime-with-addition style plot (Rather than original idea do not steal), it's decent. No, above average. It's not shit, but it's not brilliant. Content is good enough, equal parts Tank and Social, characters are written well-enough (Except Anzu, not a lot of depth there). To repeat myself one more time because why not, I don't know why Blackjack is writing a quest instead of a fanfiction.
>>25483006Considering he wrote (or still writes) Thunder and Lighting for SWQ. Yeah... I mean really at this point it doesn't feel like the players can do anything that's outside what he has per-planned and has felt like this for a long time now.
>>25483006>because sky pirates are objectively awesomeThis should be added to the universal thruths of this board.It's right up there with 'fuck you it's magic' and 'it's magic i ain't gotta explain tits'.Damn. Now I want to have an adventure with a sky pirate captain and his overeager yet tsundere witch-in-training daughter.
>>25483151>tsunderePlease no.You dont need to throw on in just because they're a popular archetype, and most of the time they're not interesting at all.
>>25483151>overeager yet tsundereNo.She should be Sucy.Both because tsundere is overdone, and because Sucy is awesome.
>>25483151There was a Sky Pirate Quest somewhere around here not that long ago... I don't remember what happen to it. Think it had monster girls in it also.
>>25483112Like I said. Why quest. I have absolutely nothing else to say, so have some image or other.>>25483151>>25483191Tsundere a shit. Especially the newer kinds that go from "Like" to "Hitting" at the flip of a coin. That's not Good Character anymore than lolinsane murderhobo is. That's bipolar.You want a good underused archetype? Yaoigirls. Yaoi Girls are bestgirl, always. Or how about Useful Competent Women? You know, you got your typical lead or First-Mate type, except He is a She, and isn't even hiding it. But no, we can't have that because Japan. Anime would be so much better without Otaku and Jap Culture. Of course if they pander to americans, it's yonder upthread DEM FREEDOMS, so fuck that too.All I want is realistic, believable characters that don't fall into the traditional archetypes and/or gender roles. Yes, yes that IS too much to ask.
>>25483352What about secretly-pervy robosexual girls?
>>25483352>realistic, believable characters that don't fall into the traditional archetypes>popular animeYeh, good luck with that.
>>25483440Yes. Yes it IS too much to ask. I really wish it wasn't, but we can't have nice things.
>>25483442I'm not talking robot girls.I mean quiet, nerdy girls who are secretly kinky as fuck, and schlick to mecha-on-mecha h-doujins.
>>25483469Infinite Stratos.Charlotte.Too bad the rest of it is crap.
>>25483516>rika>ever making a secret of her tendenciesIf shes trying to hide it, she doesnt do a very good job.
>>25483516So, Rule 63 Me. Ahem. Ahem-hem.Fuck yes.Still waiting on my friend to finish that B-17 smut I commissionedfully coloured24 tallysyou are number 25dem turrets
>>25483568This shouldn't be anywhere near as arousing as it is.
>>25483568I recommend you check out Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai.Rika will be your new waifu.
>>25483568Wasn't there some kind of A-10 SmutFic on /d/...
>>25483591>>25483516You've given me something excellent to read/watch. Have another, you deserve it. You wonderful people you
>>25483352>All I want is realistic, believable characters that don't fall into the traditional archetypes and/or gender roles.What you actually want, is more of what YOU like. Nothing wrong with liking it, but to say that anime would be so much better without otaku and Japanese culture?Something that anime is created and based around in the first place, along with in-jokes, puns, standard archetypes, and so on?Like the other poster said, good luck with that.
>>25483766Like I said before - I know. I just want to go without everything between Sisterfucker actually being A Thing, "Ruined for marriage", sickly medical eyepatch moe...Yeah, I know. Not going to happen. Polite sage because let's just let it sink to the bottom.
>>25483006>dem freedoms>Murika>AKWe have a term for you. But I can't use it on a Blue Board.
>>25483911We're already well into auto-sage. Just letting you know.
you know what we should do when celebrating? buy some fucking Olive Drab #7 paint and charge the prez for it
