I mean I hate to be kind of a jerk about it, Griselda, but that Hudson costs as much if not more than one of your tanks here. And they're not exactly selling kits to just build new ones, we have to send the engines to spare parts, anything intact but isn't usable goes to scrap. Trashing a plane like that costs us a lot of money.”“Jack, Jack, please...” Griselda rubs her temples, sighing deeply as she sits at her desk. Jack stands by it, arms folded. “I know your coaches aren't exactly happy with Elodie crushing your plane.” You bite your lip, looking away. “And I am perfectly willing to compensate you. Just name your price.”“200,000.”“...” Griselda glares at him, incredulous. “Is that extra zero a typo?”“Planes aren't like tanks. We can't put out a vintage like Tankery can. Low quality planes with crappy engines, crappy control surfaces, dials that don't work, oil that doesn't stay in the plane, those are safety hazards,” he says. “We have three dimensions to consider here. You have two. And speaking of two, it's 200,000 dollars that Hudson, I'm sorry.”“How the fuck do you even afford to do Skycraft?” asks Griselda.“We do a lot of barnstorming,” he says as he leans on the desk. “I mean, truth be told, we could make that money up doing airshows. And not like the boring flyover ones, I'm talking acrobatic stuff like the Blue Angels,” he says. Griselda sighs, slouching in her chair. “But it takes a year to pay for the purchase of a single plane. Those things are expensive. Crashing them in one piece is one thing, we can fix most damage yeah, but getting them crushed or split in half?” He shakes his head. “Griselda, that's-”“Can I pay this over time?” she asks quietly. “I just don't have the money now.”Jack smirks a little, then shrugs. “We can talk about it over morning coffee.” Griselda grumbles a little as Jack moves to her coffee machine.Iris says, “They seem to be getting along nicely.”“I feel so guilty,” you say.“It was either crush the tank or possibly lose the match,” says Iris. “I'm sure they would've done the same.”> Let Griselda and Jack work things out.> Apologize to Jack personally.> Other
>>1048901> Apologize to Jack personally.
>>1048901>Apologize to Jack personally.but throw in there that we don't get to pick our battlefield, or its condition.
>>1048901>> Apologize to Jack personally.
>>1048901>> Apologize to Jack personally.Wait the fuck on. Why isn't the organization paying for this?Doesn't tankery pay for any property damaged during a fight?and if they are playing the play as they lie card then the planes are very well property in which the organization has to pay for.
>>1048901> Apologize to Jack personally.Might as well.
>>1048923There's a quest for the future, lawyer the fuck up and tell the Association to hack up the money.
>>1048933I mean it was a fucking safety hazard to begin with and a third party. and the judge did a play as they lie where heavy tanks are running around, even with simulated rounds. and what about the planes having 'armor plating' for skycraft? We split that shit in half. If they stayed put we could have heavily injured them. Who takes responsibility here? I think its NATO.
>>1048901>Let Griselda and Jack work things out.Griselda already threw herself under the bus. No need for a double roadkill.
>>1048901> Apologize to Jack personally.But don't let Griselda weasel her way out of coffee with him, they're too cute with each other.
>>1048947Might be one of the 'It's your responsibility!' situations. NATO and Skycraft are bitching at each other who's fault it is and neither are willing to pay.
>>1048985The why would the judges allowed it. If anything we have a case in which the judged allowed it and both tank teams protested this.If anything its Nato's responsibility for allowing the match to happen before skycraft removed the planes.
> Apologize to Jack personally.You step in. “Jack.” Jack looks over to you, two cups of coffee in hand. Griselda as well rubs her forehead, looking to you curiously. “I just want to say I'm so sorry that I crushed your plane and basically totaled it. I- I honestly didn't expect the plane to be torn in half by me going through it.” You smile nervously. “I mean-... I'm sure NATO will compensate you.”“The Kill Devil Hills Skycraft team has been compensated by NATO,” he says. Griselda looks over, confused. “But. The coaching staff and the Principal feel that LGA has to pay damages for the tank as well. The school feels that it's your responsibility to-”“Hold on, hold on,” says Griselda. “We're essentially giving you double what the plane's worth?” she asks. Jack nods, grimly. “The fuck? We're not agreeing to that. I'd barely agree to paying for the plane over time with interest, I'm not going to pay for the plane just because your coaches want to be greedy.”“Hey, listen. They're great people,” says Jack. “But it's pride, you know?”“That's not pride, that's extortion,” Griselda says firmly. “You can tell them to take NATO's money and leave or you can tell them to talk to me -in person- without using you as a fucking sockpuppet. LGA's already wasting space letting you guys fly in our skies, now you want to steal our money too? Fuck that. You can tell them to jump off the edge of the ship and right into the fucking Atlantic, maybe the goddamn water will give them the wake up call they fucking desperately need.” Jack stands there, getting roasted to shit. “And I assure you, if this were Gertrude you were talking to, she'd have you roasted on a spit and served up to your coaches for brunch. I am being reasonable! Tell them that!”Jack holds up a hand, smirking. “Alright, alright. Jeez.” Griselda huffs, shaking her head. “I'll tell them, don't worry. Don't shoot the messenger, Griselda.”“I'm tempted, I really am,” she says simply. She glares at him. “Are you still fucking here?”“Hey, coffee.” He places a mug down in front of Griselda, then walks up to you. “Hey, listen, Ellie. No need to apologize to me. In your situation, if it were me, I'd have done the same. The real people though that you should apologize to...” You lean your head up, ugh.[1/2]
>>1049022[2/2]--“Ellie.” Jack introduces you, Griselda, and Iris to a crew of six guys, wearing the school uniform of KDH with the bomber jacket and the goggles as well. They have their arms folded, a little grim it seems. “This is Jimmy Patterson, his co-pilot Jeremy, navigator Preston, gunners George, Lee, and Kenley. Apologize to them.”You take a deep breath, sighing. “Guys, I am so sorry for wrecking your airplane. If you ever need anything from me, just ask. I hope NATO has properly compensated you all, and I hope no one was hurt.” You bow to them. “Please forgive me.”…Jimmy smirks. “To be fair, that looked pretty badass.”“Yeah,” says Jeremy. “We- we forgive ya, Ellie. I'm sure Jack would've done the same anyway.”“That's what I said!” says Jack. The guys all laugh a little while you girls simply stand around awkward. “Now listen you guys, we're not gonna be flying Skirmish today, so let's just enjoy the match today, alright?”“Yeah. You want us to really forgive you?” Jimmy points to you, smiling. “Win the whole fucking thing. Don't let our plane go to waste.” They all agree to that, nodding in solidarity.> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>1049025>PoliteNice roast, Griselda. Too bad they'll still be around, but it's a decent start towards fixing that.
>>1049025>BoastWe'll do our best!
>>1049025>BoastYou got it.
>>1049025> PoliteGris certainly let out some tension there. Poor Jack.
>>1049058TBF, He could have mentioned this earlier. Sockpuppet or not, omission of information to get extra cash does not make him look good.
>>1049058He kinda deserves it. He tried to extort the team out of money it doesn't have and, worst of all, he's still not taking a long walk off a short pier.
>>1049090He was a messenger but what I'm annoyed with is this>>1049073Omission of information fucked him, BADLY.
>>1049073>>1049090Oh of course, it is deserved. But I do feel for the guy. He likes Griselda, after all. But yeah, no issue being angry at him.
> Boast“Nothing goes to waste on my watch,” you say. The boys all shake hands with you, reaffirming a bit of camaraderie at the very least. “Rest assured, we'll win today, we'll win next week, and the next week, and the next week, and the next week, then take home the gold.”“Hell yeah!” yells Jimmy. Jimmy again slaps hands with you, gripping it tight before letting go. “Get 'em, girls.”“We will,” says Griselda. “And as for you, Jack.” Jack looks over, smiling. And to that, Griselda punches him on the arm. He jumps up, almost spilling his coffee.“Ow! What the-”“That is for not just coming straight out and telling me! You're a goddamn terrible messenger anyway!” yells Griselda. “You couldn't tell Adolf Hitler that his dog died, good Christ.” He motions you and Iris to follow you. “Come on, let's go.” You wave back at the boys, who wave back politely. They walk away on their own.“Woo, GrisGris lit you up, Jack,” says Jimmy.“Ah, quiet,” Jack says, pushing Jimmy a bit. The two of them laugh at it.You, Griselda, and Iris start walking to the front of the bleachers. And at this, Iris says, “The judges had the plane wrecks moved today, so we should be fine regarding that. No more running into tanks I should hope.” Griselda grumbles a little, her arms folded. “I am sorry about the extortion thing.”“Leave it,” says Griselda. “Today's match is probably going to be a bit more harder. We have a flag, they have a flag, they also have shitloads of arty leftover. Only saving grace is that Glenn Curtiss couldn't hit the broad side of a barn if they were standing inside of it.” Jesus Christ, Griselda. “Anyway...” She takes a deep breath, cooling down for now, then she takes a drink of coffee from her mug. “I'm excited for today, you guys excited?”“Perfectly,” says Iris in her more default polite mode.> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>1049198> PoliteWe too have a default polite mode.
>>1049198>> Polite>Remind Griselda about them trying to do a Tank Destroyer role.
>>1049198>BoastAbsolutely. But slightly saddened that we can't paintball helpless boys.
> Polite“I am excited as well. Hopefully today's match will go just as well as yesterday's did.” Usually you'd say that with a bit of sarcasm, but you think today you can say it with complete seriousness. There's not much you can do to top yesterday's turkeyshoot. All you have to do now is just win today, get an easy victory, then start preparing for J. Walter Christie. That will be the real challenge.“Of course,” says Griselda. “Come on.”With that, you arrive at the stage with June Bug and her Officers. The three Judges stand between you, ready to start after you take a few words. June Bug smiles, arms folded. “Yesterday was a complete disaster for us.”You shrug. “Well, we can understand if you guys are new to the sport.”“Ha!” June Bug smiles. “We may not have money like JWC or their ingenuity, but we do have one thing up on them!”“Skycraft?” asks Griselda.“... well, yes. But we do! And today, we're going to put up a much better fight, so watch out! We might just accidentally snipe your flag!”Griselda smiles, holding out her hand. “Good luck out there, June Bug.” June Bug shakes Griselda's hand in return, wide grin on her face. At least those two are getting along nicely.“The match between Lafayette Girls Academy and Glenn Curtiss School of Engineering and Technology shall now begin! This is a flag match!

This time, there won't be any Stuarts to slow us down or spot us out for their artillery. Today, they'll be firing blind, but that doesn't mean I want you all to start charging in like a bunch of headless chickens. I want engines quiet, no smoke unless your engine is dying, and I want caution as we move. Got it?”“Got it!” everyone declares.And with that, the flare explodes in the sky, signalling the start of the match.
>>1049532Whoops, forgot the commands.> COMMAND POINTS: 42CP> INTUITION: - 2 CP> EXECUTE TACTICAL MANEUVER (Which?)> ACTIVATE LOYALTY ABILITY (Which?)> Deploy Smoke (3/3)> APDS Shot (5/5)> APCR Shot (5/5)> Start heading for the bridge quickly.> Hurry to dig in.> Take your time, stay with the column.> Other
>>1049537> Take your time, stay with the columnSomething to note, they actually have the high ground and have a good view.
>>1049537> Start heading for the bridge quickly.We want to secure the Western Bridge off Verona Island before their Lees get there, if we take just us and the Hellcat we can beat their Lees to it (assuming same travel times as last match). Send Benny away North after the team crosses the first bridge to hide in the woodland/scrub. It's kind of cheap but they'll basically be unable to kill her if she never gets to the action, and they haven't the artillery to saturate such a large area.
>>1049537>Start heading for the bridge quickly.Chihatan rushing worked last time. Why exercise caution? They still have a lot of arty.
>>1049574This isn't bad. But should we maybe drop one more nearby as a guard? Even as a stop gap if they get a lucky shot close? Allows for repositioning.
>>1049575Chi ha tan rushing never works
>>1049591Nah, they'd have to use the Bridges to get to us anyway, better to send more forces to secure them directly than waste one hanging back with Benny, besides, the Pz IV H is more than a match for a Lee if one does sneak through. As for arty, no point sending more and risking creating enough dust and smoke that they could actually figure out our location.
>>1049607It is when OPFOR has a lot of arty but no spotters.
>>1049627I guess that is fair. I just worry that they have snorkels too and will surprise Benny...
>>1049537> Start heading for the bridge quickly.>>1049627>>1049574this
>>1049637The Penobscot River proper's too deep to ford, they'd need Sherman DDs. It's why I changed my plans yesterday so Iris crossed the shallower Eastern Channel. Plus, by the time their Lees get to somewhere they can cross, we'll be about to cross the Western Verona Island bridge, from which we could pick them off as they waded across.
>>1049537>>1049574This same formation
>>1049654Fair enough. I am still very warry. But maybe its just me being prepared/concerned for/about Hobart level sorcery.But I guess this is a time trial...sort of.Just expect some intuition calls at some point.
“Let the match begin!”--“Alright, Benny, you're our flag tank,” says Griselda. “We should go with the same plan for today.

I could chill a razorback in this coolant!”“Yeah, yeah, uh... just follow me.” You and Dalia start speeding past the column. It's your job now to get to the bridge. And that means needing to go pretty fast. Your tanks speed down the road as fast as they possibly can while still maintaining close formation. “Everyone know what to do?” you ask.“Yeah, yeah. Gonna be boring,” says Benny.“It's necessary,” says Griselda. “They don't have spotters. Even if they somehow kill us all, they'll never find you. Tankery has no time limit so you'll have room for a comeback if it comes to it.” Of course, they'll bounce back in the worst case scenario. For now though, you just have to secure that bridge.You hear a few loud pops in the distance. Only three. You see the artillery impacts at the far western bridge, and the north bridge.Hm. North bridge was weakened a little yesterday. There's no way city council would fix it overnight.> COMMAND POINTS: 42CP> INTUITION: - 2 CP> EXECUTE TACTICAL MANEUVER (Which?)> ACTIVATE LOYALTY ABILITY (Which?)> Deploy Smoke (3/3)> APDS Shot (5/5)> APCR Shot (5/5)> Move down past the bridge.> Hold up next to the bridge.> Other
>>1049768>Other.Gingerly tiptoe across the bridge while praying fervently.
>>1049768> INTUITION: - 2 CP> OtherBoth of our tanks are relatively small and light, even if the bridge is damaged, if anything's gonna make it across it'll be us, send the Hellcat across first, once it reaches the other side then we cross, this'll place the least stress on the bridge, report back its condition to the rest of the column as we cross too.
>>1049768What will happen if the two sides cannot engage each other? If the bridges are toast, and the arty's out of ammo, will the match be called a draw?
>>1049798Do we have a winch cable available? Would it be wise to attach one to the Hellcat so that we are safe? Maybe even with Suvarov?If it starts to creak and groan, we go to the other bridge?
>>1049814There is no other bridge. If the Northern bridge gives out there's no way for us to get to the enemy, nor them to us.
>>1049799If Glenn Curtiss were to trash the bridge and somehow run out of ammo as well, but LGA still had ammo, they'll be expected to figure out a solution.A draw is only called if A. the remaining tanks in elimination OR the flag tanks in Flag wipe each other at the exact same time or B. the Judges conclude that the match can no longer continue.The match will continue as long as a team has ammo and there's reasonable ability for the one team to engage the other.
>>1049821Alright. I guess that makes sense. I saw Western and Northern bridge and got confused.
>>1049799Whoever is still combat capable I suppose.I mean, you could build an ad hoc bridge or boat using local materials.
>>1049768>>1049798This but send the Hellcat as a advance scout to see where the other tanks are.
>>1049839Don't forget the handy combat logs!>>1049798Alright, supporting this.
> INTUITION: - 2 CP> Other “Dalia, you go first.”“Why do we have to go first?” asks Dalia.“Cuz I said so, now go.”“Ugh...” The Hellcat drives up to the bridge, then turns down southwards. It starts moving across, slowly at first. But as Dalia hears the creaking grinding metal of the supports beneath her, she yells, “FLOOR IT!” The Hellcat flies right across the bridge. No damage it seems. Right, judging by the look of those supports, that bridge is probably only going to take at best you and the other mediums. The heavies will have to find another way to cross.Even worse, if the bridge collapses behind you, it'll just be you and Dalia.You hold on tight to the cupola as you cross the bridge. “Reasonable speed, Josephina!” you yell.“Oui, oui!” yells Josephina back. You can feel some pavement get crushed and fall beneath your treads. Oh fuck. Come on! Come on! Come on! Your tank Oliver speeds right across, and you see the bridge still intact. Oh thank goodness.“Ellie, Dalia.” Dalia calls to you over the radio as you advance. “I see the M3 Lees across the river, north of the west bridge. All the Lees, looks like they're setting up on the bank.” You take out your binoculars and take a look. Through shrub and bush, you do see the dull blues of Curtiss tanks on the other side of the river. They're out there. “How do you want to deal with this? I don't think they've spotted us yet.”If they haven't spotted you, that means you'll be safe from artillery for now.

>>1049997> Hold position and wait for the others to catch up.Get ready for it though. I expect that we're going to have to engage soon, because the heavy's are delayed, we'll need to hold them at bay while we wait for them. And you have to expect that they will be holding the riverbank now because they know we can cross it.
>>1049973> INTUITION: - 2 CP> Hold position and wait for the others to catch up.> Deploy Smoke (3/3)> OtherDamn, I was hoping we could beat them across that bridge. So, move the Jagd and King Tigers to the marked position on the map, as they're too heavy to make it across the now damaged bridge anyway, from there, they can fire on the Lees lined up on the other side of the bridge, hopefully drawing their attention and killing a few (I think a Jagd shell could just about pass clean through a Lee or two from the side at those ranges), when that happens, we smoke up and rush the bridge with us and the Hellcat first and the Mediums following behind, leave the rest of the Heavies to catch up as crossing the bridge will be painstakingly slow for them (Churchill and IS-2 as relatively 'light' Heavies with good ground pressure should be alright, but the Pershing's touch and go and should cross last).
>>1050048I am okay with these addition with what we have voted for already.
>>1050048and forgot the map, derp.
>>1049973>>1050073I support this. I want the jadtiger to shine
>>1050037Probably.But their entire force is lined up. A charge here is suicidal. We need support before we can head over.
>>1050097Indeed, our !not-keions are based, especially !not-Mugi loader.
>>1050110Arent these the early M3 Lee too, the one with the big door and a weak point in the armor? Won't this give us more penetration with the Jadtiger.
>>1050143I don't think a JTiger needs any extra pen against an M3 Lee.
>>1050154They need to stay the hell away.
>>1050154I meant to penetrate multiple M3 Less in one go.
> Hold up next to the bridge.“Hold up, Dalia. Take cover.” You and Dalia find some bushes to take cover in, then decide to wait for the mediums to show up.Griselda calls it over the radio. “The bridge is fucked. Mediums with me. Iris, Regina, Serafina, you cross with caution. Serina, Jane, you girls don't cross at all. You go west and find a good bank to show yourselves at and try to put some fire down on them from the north.”“Got it,” says Serina.“There's a Bad Moon Rising, girls!” yells Jane.“Oh for PLEASE NO MORE CCR!” screams Pam.“Too late!

Ellie, I want you to lead the charge then swing north and cause chaos in their formation, you take Dalia with you too. We'll follow behind and mop up.

> Follow Griselda's plan and attack.> Deploy Smoke (3/3)“Alright, let's go! Now!” Your tanks break across the bridge, with Griselda leading the medium tanks behind you. Here we go, here we go, here we go! The M3 Lees spot you, turning slightly to face both their 75s and 37s. That's twice the firepower, but thankfully, none of the bite. Shells bounce or explode around you or miss entirely. Dalia as well is earning her keep today, trying to maintain formation with you. “That's the stuff! Come on!” you yell.You make it across the bridge and powerslide around to face them. The M3 Lees back up, realizing just how absolutely boned they are. They try again to face you, only for one to be shot in the back.> KO: ASHLEY ZACHARY (M3 Lee “Mockingbird”)> KILL CREDITED TO: SERINA HILDEBRAND (Tiger II(p) “Cub”)Jane's shot misses unfortunately, but the shock of facing you and having shots from the north starts to make them panic. “Right in there, let's go!” yells Dalia. The two of you rush right into their formation. And to make things more difficult on them, you pop smoke canisters. It'll stop your cover fire, but it will confuse the Lees even more. “Get 'em!” You fire a shot.> KO: GEORGINE MCCORD (M3 Lee “Booby”)> KILL CREDITED TO: ELODIE R. ZUMWALT (Cromwell VIIw LT “Oliver”)> KO: VICKY MILLS (M3 Lee “Cuckoo”)> KILL CREDITED TO: DALIA EARNHARDT (M18 Hellcat “Mifune”)You fire another shot into the chaos. > KO: DINA CAUL (M3 LEE “Naynay”)> KILL CREDITED TO: ELODIE R. ZUMWALT (Cromwell VIIw LT “Oliver”)One of the Lees screams past you. Another is turning around on its tracks, trying to figure out where's where. This is going to be another turkey shoot! Suddenly artillery lands among you all. The smoke cover is immediately blown away by the blast force. Thankfully, nobody was hurt but- They're shooting while you're in the middle of their formation!“Hey, hey!” yells Serina. “I see the flag tank! They're westbound! Trying to get a shot off now!” The flag tank must be on the run for higher ground, or at least a defensible position. And while the Lee isn't exactly fast... No, what's more important is that if you stick around, those artillery shells are probably going to nail you, and probably the bridge to keep the flow of tanks from getting out of control.> COMMAND POINTS: 40CP> INTUITION: - 2 CP> EXECUTE TACTICAL MANEUVER (Which?)> ACTIVATE LOYALTY ABILITY (Which?)> Deploy Smoke (2/3)> APDS Shot (5/5)> APCR Shot (5/5)> Drop everything and chase that flag.> Mop up the Lees now and hope you don't get hit by artillery.> Other

You weren't going to worry about your now exposed rear armor. Right now what you were going to worry about was taking down that flag. “Come on, come on!” you yell. You look back to see the Lee CDL trying to chase you. It shines its bright light at you. “Ah! Son of a-” You blink the second sun out of your eyes, looking away. No, it won't matter if you keep moving! Just go, just go! The 37 mill bounces off your turret side and the 75mm misses.

You all shake hands amicably.June Bug takes it with a smile, nodding. “I'll admit, this year we don't have it. No way we're making it to the postseason.” This many losses on their record? They've been mathematically eliminated. Even if they were to turn it around, they'd never qualify. “But hey. We're taking the lessons we learned this year, we'll turn it around and get you all next year.”Griselda smiles. “That's really mature of you, June. We hope to see you fight us next year, maybe?”“Not maybe,” says June Bug. “Definitely. And next time, we'll win for sure.” Griselda and June Bug grab hands again, squeezing them tight.

>>1051420Sooo close to 50! Still good to see us up there. And Iris is almost at 60 too!What I really love though is that we're starting to see a really even spread. Makes us versatile, which I will take over all star games any day.Though I still hope we make it!
>>1051331>PoliteShe's nice. And she understands that this should be fun.
> PoliteYou shake hands with June Bug. “I look forward to seeing more from you too. Given some time and a bit more practice, I think you guys could really give us a run for our money one day.” June Bug grins, placing her hands on her hips. “Maybe we'll see each other during FleetFest or the All-Star game.”“Maybe we will!” June Bug waves goodbye to you. “Til next time!”With that, you, Iris, Griselda start heading back to the trucks that'll take you to your planes. Iris says, “June Bug handled that well. Even though her team is in the barrel, she understands that Tankery is for fun.”Griselda nods. “That's why I like her.”“Maybe you could learn a thing or two from her,” you say. Griselda rolls her eyes. Maybe she could, come on! “Anyway. This was an easy set, no offense to June Bug. But we have to prepare the crews for the next set.” “Agreed,” says Griselda. “Come on, we'll take my truck to the plane and brainstorm.” You all get into Griselda's Dodge truck, you in the passenger seat and Iris in the back. “First thing's first, we need manpower and lots of it. We can't keep scraping by understrength. That's going to bite us in the ass.” You nod. That is a serious problem. “Second, we need more tanks. I can talk to Yutani about that, thirdly...” She sighs. The truck drives with the others to the runway where you'll be taking off.Iris says, “You should not stress out about it.”“I'm not,” says Griselda. “I'm just- It's hard. Okay? And did you hear the news? J. Walter Christie got pulled into a draw.”Iris blinks, then her eyes go wide in uncharacteristic surprise. “And if we won today...”“We're in first place!” you declare.[1/2]
>>1051634[2/2]Griselda smiles a little. “Yep. For just one week.” She holds up a finger. “LGA is in first place in the Western League Central Division.” Oh Sweet Jesus Christ on a henhouse. “If we can hold it, we won't have to participate in that Wild Card Match. We get an extra day to rest, we go straight to Divisional Championships.”You arrive at the runway, and start heading up the steps into the plane. First place, it can't be! It feels too good to be true!And speaking of too good. “Surprise!” You all jump in surprise at the entire Tankery team surprising Griselda, Iris, and yourself with a large cake. Luisa and Yuno smile happily, holding the knife and plates. Luisa says, “Griselda, we were planning on breaking out this cake for you to thank you for everything that you did for the team!” Griselda looks at the cake, white frosting and everything, wafer tanks, all that stuff. She smiles happily, less nervously. “I know, we would've looked like idiots saving it for a loss just in case but still. This is for you. We want to celebrate some good times!”Griselda takes a deep breath, sighing deeply. She looks like a very bemused but frustrated mother at this rate. “You guys didn't have to.”“No, we didn't have to,” says Serafina. “We -needed- to. You deserve it! Come on!” More girls encourage Griselda to have some cake.Even Iris says, “One slice wouldn't hurt.”> “Go on, Griselda.”> “It's up to you, Griselda.”> “Guys, you shouldn't have, honestly.”> Other

>>1051777Oh totally. We need skills. Skills would have gotten us some MVP points. But now we get to shock people. I mean "The Zumwalt" was shocking enough!
> “Go on, Griselda.”You smile at Griselda. “Go on, Griselda.” Griselda seems a bit incapable of processing this for a second. She steps forward, then allows Yuno to slice the first piece for her, one of the bigger corner pieces which means she gets all that frosting too. Griselda takes it, nodding gratefully to Yuno and Luisa. She takes a deep breath, and you notice that her hands are shaking a little.“Th-... thank you, everybody.” Griselda takes a deep breath again, rubbing her eyes a little. “I uh... I'm not sure I deserve something like this. You're better off rewarding Elodie or Iris. I just make sure the team runs as all.” She looks down a little. “And um. Yeah, but...” She rubs at her eye again, a light blush on her face. “You all do more than me around here anyway, so-”Regina immediately hugs her.…Griselda looks at her. “What are you doing?”“Rescuing your heart,” says Regina. Griselda takes a second to process this, then immediately bursts into laughter. Regina as well starts laughing intensely, which sparks everyone to start laughing as well. Even you have a little giggle at it. Laughter's contagious after all. “You deserve it. Come on, let's cut more cake!”“Ladies and uhh... gentlemen, this is Marina, your pilot speaking.” You all look up at the intercom. “The weather uhhh... is a very nice temperate day with barely a cloud as we start our takeoff. I just want everyone to know that we are about to take off. So please be seated, fasten your seatbelts, and hold onto your butts.”Oh shit. Everyone scrambles to a seat. You help secure the cake before the takeoff ruins everything.--After takeoff though, everyone went back to get some cake. You look over to see Griselda and Serafina apparently having a conversation not in Polish, but in English now. Regina and Suvorov as well give kudos to Griselda for having them aboard the team. You can also see in the back Dalia and Benny having another argument, a friendly one at least, about cars. Carver as well gets ribbed gently by Serina for getting sniped, the only one death in today's match.Winona sits down next to you, smiling. “Feels good to win, doesn't it?”> Boast> Neutral> Polite
>>1051777Right, we still need to pick her as our mentor... unless she is already locked in? And assuming it's been long enough, we could go do the last part of Kathy's quest. Unless it's mining our her spaceship and she was a dog all along, we should get her to join and her her dogs crew the rest of the tank, whatever it is.Or like, it's the Kugelpanzer for whatever reason. I wonder if that would even be allowed?
>>1051801>BoastA good clean victory always feels good. If it doesn't, then we did something wrong.
>>1051801Like Gertrude boast
> Boast“It feels great.” You take a munch of the cake, and watch as Stack, Josephina, and Ingrid talk. Ingrid is apparently explaining to the two of them the fine basics of baseball, and the two of them are actually listening very well to her. “We keep this up, JWC is gonna be nothing to us.”Winona smiles. “Of course not!” She points to your lip. “Ah, Ellie. You got a little here.”You blink, pointing to it. “Here?”“Here, I'll get it.” She brushes your lip with her finger, then quickly sticks it in her mouth, smirking very smugly at you. What Is she- You- What. You start blushing intensely. Winona! Winona that's lewd, no! “Mmm, tastes good.”“Y- yeah.” You look away. “Cake's really good.”“I wasn't talking about the cake.”“YOU-” You slap her on the arm, making her yelp. “Stop it!” you yell. “Augh!”Still, even though you were yelling at Winona for doing something monstrously lewd at a time like this, you did have time to reflect. LGA is in first place! We could coast into the postseason easily. But at the same time, the tournament was not over yet. Three sets were still remaining to be played. And of course, during the party you had a look at your opponents. While everyone was cheering and celebrating, you couldn't stop yourself.Oh jeez.> J.

>>1052098That's it for tonight's LGA2 and this weekend. Hope you all enjoyed and congrats on your sweep against Glenn Curtiss. And with the sweep, LGA is now 1st in the WL Central. Let's see if you can keep it.Highlights:- JWC: Perrine Hobart debates at length for three hours with judges, delaying match, to try and convince judges that she can deploy a Schwerer Gustav Railway gun. Judges object first on grounds that there are no railroads around on playable area. Perrine argues she could simply build railroads to accommodate it out of stuff left over in map. Second and final objection comes stating Schwerer Gustav is not self-propelled.- LGA: Elodie Zumwalt strikes panic into Glenn Curtiss defensive line, striking down a few Lee tanks before taking the killing blow on the flag, securing LGA's 1st place in division.- ZES: Mei Xiang leads Zhou Enlai on fording attack, with several of her tanks completely submerged. Oryola impressed enough to personally congratulate Mei and discuss even though ZES lost the fight.- CG: Meryl Hoffmeister earns school record 58th kill, sniping flag tank moving away from her at 1.2 kilometers away at 45 mph while on the move herself.- KGC: Kuromorimine Maus tank blocks bridge for five hours, blocking Kasserine High School advance long enough for flanking forces to surround and entrap Kasserine.Also note that we now have the Eastern League teams now tracked on the league table. As you can see, Kursk, Zhou Enlai, and Joan D'Orleans are the big contenders for the postseason at the moment, with St. Gloriana and Kuromorimine not too far behind in the wildcards.Regardless. Good thread.Follow at: https://twitter.com/GermanSchteelAsk at: http://germanschteel.tumblr.com/Book Tumbles: http://germanschteelbookblog.tumblr.com/See you next time.
>>1052150>Schwerer GustavOh god what. We're not ready for Perrine at all, are we?
>>1052150Good running, chief
>>1052150Thanks for the fun, boss
>>1052150Thanks for running Schteel.
>>1052171Must acquire finnish team post haste.
>>1052150Good thread boss.>Schwerer Gustav is not self-propelledThe Monster is, and would technically be Tankery legal, but it remains to be seen why Perrine wants a 40 minute reload time gun with a monumental minimum range.She should use that one gun Alice used in the GuP movie. What was that arty called?
>>1052150When did Meryl become such a tank saint?
>>1052150Its fun looking at the kill stats as well as the standings now. And I like the fact that our friends Dix and Meryl are up top. I like them a lot.Neat seeing Kim-Ly in figured that there would be more ZES up there like the Swede who I currently forget her name.And seeing this summaries about. I continue to understand why we are just not inpressive enough for Joe and Jane tanker. But its all good. I'll take the MVPs and unsung hero award at the end of the year. Seeing as I am sure the NATO league has such things.>>1052171Perrine is a god damnned witch that we must fear, but not TOO much lest we get caught up in everything...That said, I expect that we'll have a split on our hands at best. Knocking Perinne out may be damn near impossible.>>1052226The Gagetown match was decieving. Because she played fair and honourable against us
>>1052213The Karl-Gerat Siege guns, of which only seven were built. One belongs to the Shimada-ryuu trained University All-Star team. JWC actually owns three of them, two of which participate in the Tankery Unlimited circuit with extensive modifications.>>1052226Meryl has always been an elite gunner, but is usually held back by the crappy teams she's playing with. The perfect 20-kill no loss game she had probably helped her spirits too.
>>1052150See you next time Schteel!Anyone in Skycraft have pinups in their cockpits?
>>1052150Good work on the Maus, doing what it does best. Now I only wish we could see the results of Kuromorimine and the Hugo's Maus's going at it. 6 hours of pulse pounding waiting for them to get in close.
>>1052268Lots of the boys have pinups up, some of Gertrude, some of Griselda.
>>1052285Guess we need to go and work on that little side project...for Jockey of course.
>>1052309>>1052285Wouldn't be surprised if someone had pics of us dancing.You know what that means, surprise inspection!
>>1052150What's the record for KO's in a season? 'Cause Orly has to be getting close.
>>1052354The current NATO season record is actually held by Orly herself at 95 kills. She stands a good chance of breaking it again.
>>1052360The talk of records actually has me thinking. What is LGA's record? I say this as someone who hasn't read LGA1, but figure Iris has a chance.>>1052317You'd figure our video going viral may add to our All-Star chances. Someone has to be voting for things other than tank skill.
>>1052385This is actually LGA's first year in the NATO League, so any records you establish here will be the records to beat the next year.Last Quest was in the ITL where it was less about beating records and more about saving the school.
>>1052360Yeah. I'm still more scared of Kursk than ZES. And I think for good reason. As nice as she is, Orly is an ass kicking machine.
>>1052385Kill counts were more even in the last LGA. There was no Iris getting kills left and right.There was an experienced crew with a very high kill count but most of that was carried over by their previous experiences in LGA tankery.
>>1052389>Last Quest was in the ITL where it was less about beating records and more about saving the school.And getting the girls.
>>1052409That too.>>1052395Oryola isn't just an ass kicking machine, part of what makes Kursk great is how well they established their doctrine both in the match and outside of it. Their big word is patience. Unlike ZES who buy up transfer students with high skill and potential, Kursk's doctrine in regards to getting Tankers is to basically farm them from elementary and middle schools around the world. Kursk has a hand in funding a variety of schools in Vietnam, Korea, Ukraine, Poland, Finland, Norway, etc. The best get to represent their tiny schools in the lesser tournaments, the best of the best get to attend Kursk.
>>1052406That's a fair point.I actually like that the team is starting to even out, even if it is common knowledge that Iris and Ellie are the dangers of LGA. Gris would be if she wasn't hamstrung.
>>1052422Ah, so the AAA farm team/Professional Football(soccer) youth development systems.I like that system. But its frightening to look at on our end.
>>1052442It's already produced several low-key stars for Kursk, including Kim-ly and Rozaliya Ulanova (who was actually fast tracked from Middle School to serve Kursk, being only 14 years old or so.)
>>1052409Elo would be doing this but it's remarkably quiet on that front, and Trudy had more duties and pressure than Elo does.Maybe it was the boasting. Elo should do that more to start raking in girls.
Now I'm wondering. With her experience in tankery and being kind of a low key star now, will Ellie be able to meet Oryola at the fleet fest without swooning this time?
>>1052462It's impossible not to swoon for Oryola's husky ruskie charm.Either that or its because the smell she gives off tends to make people faint.
>>1052462This is Ellie we're talking about. She still thinks she's the empty space in between the stars. If she finds her way at the fleet, she's still going to be an awkward duck against the giants.
>>1052466It's probably the charm. She was Ellie's favorite tanker for a reason after all.
