  1. This is just a fun nonsense thread! Post your song of the day and maybe give a short description on why you chose this piece for the day. Review and critique the songs, if you guys want. I'll go first...and I'm posting this BECAUSE IT'S ALMOST SUMMER!
  2. I too am a bit bummed, but elated at the prospect of a Victory Belles beta. When launched though, I think BCS should go all-out with the marketing and the pomp to maximize excitement. I's the first Western-made Kantai Collection-like game. That's exciting!
  3. Dang...that could be angsty headcanon. Imagine Belle Missouri looking over the remains of her long-gone comrade Arizona while thinking about the veterans of her past. The Belles would be the embodiment of this trope -
  4. They basically summed up the question like Short Round.
  5. Definitely an interesting question lore-wise. Gameplay-wise, I think we can have multiple relationships a la Kantai Collection without any sort of real problems.
  6. I just found the most beautiful Scottish / Irish song ever. Kinda sad, but I imagine Belfast singing this alone at the docks as she toasts her long-gone comrades...
  7. After all, this game has the potential of being very big for the ship-girl genre, but the marketers have to use the hype machine well.
  8. I hope the beta is out by Christmas, but I'm patient. I just hope BCS's marketing team is ready to go into overdrive to reignite passion for VB with those who aren't a part of this forum.
  9. Oh! Now that's good!
  10. Wasn't it implied that Kirov drinks to keep that hard-partying nature of hers?
  11. I'll second your vote for the German. Hopefully, she does her goodbyes the Austrian way...and not the German way ;).
  12. Just out of curiosity, when is the next time you guys are going to discuss a potential Beta?
  13. I thought this would be a fun topic since we all love naval things...and Victory Belles. It's usually obvious to choose World War II since there is a rich variety of ships...and there were many epic battles fought in that era. However, do you guys think other eras could get the Victory Belles treatment? I can go first. Age of Sail / Napoleonic Wars - Lots of naval battles were fought during this period, whether it be against pirates or enemy armadas. There are even some famous ships that people could latch HMS Victory and USS Constitution. Like World War II, there are a rich variety of Belles that could be created from all the different navies that were active during the era...including famous pirate vessels like Queen Anne's Revenge. World War I - There weren't many naval battles fought during this era (except maybe for Jutland), but there are a lot of ships that people could choose. There are also a few famous ships during this era, including HMS Iron Duke and Emden. Cold War (60s to 70s) - Since the Cold War spanned a long stretch of time, I thought the 60s and 70s might be the best for a Victory Belles treatment because that's when two big events happened - the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. There are also a few WW2 ships that are around during this time since they participated in the Vietnam War. This is a bit off-beat since no big naval conflict happened during this era, but I think the Cold War could have some possibility with all the NATO vs Warsaw Pact navies fighting it out (or fighting against the Morganas together). Do you think it's feasible to do other eras? Do you have other eras that might be suited for the Victory Belles treatment? It's just a fun exercise in brainstorming...while we wait for Victory Belles to get started. Thanks!
  14. That could be interesting. I imagine that Queen Anne's Revenge would be a saucy Belle...probably with a tinge of a French accent because she was originally a French slaver ship.
  15. That makes the Morganas the true pirates of the sea. Maybe they could be named after famous pirate ships like Queen Anne's Revenge, Fancy, etc.
  16. That could a siren :).
  17. Maybe Morganas could have zombie pirate crews...or spectral ghosts a la Pirates of the Caribbean. The Belles have their own human crews, so they could be enhanced or reinforced by the Belle. If anything, it would be like the game Dynasty Warrior with the Belles acting as the hero / officer units.
  18. The monitors did look ugly, but they would definitely be fun. Unfortunately, that era didn't have a lot of ship-to-ship combat a la the Age of Sail. Interesting fact: The English did use two monitors to fight in WW2: HMS Erebus and HMS Terror.
  19. That could be interesting since there were a lot of strange designs from that era, ranging from wooden ships with steam-power to ironclads.
  20. *Yankee Doodle intensifies*
  21. Definitely could be interesting. Even the Morgana-like enemies could be represented by phantom ships or sea creatures, which could allow for a lot of high-seas adventure.
  22. Of course, some of the latter WW2 ships (like the Clevelands, Iowas, and Essex) did serve in the Cold War. For my question, I was thinking of a game just dedicated to these eras. It is all in jest though since it's an exercise in brainstorming. It's not meant for the current VB game.
  23. I do hope we get a beta ready in time.
  24. Is this for motivating the troops?
  25. Fascinating! So they do have physical ships (as opposed to the Belles fighting directly like Kancolle). I just wanted to see a picture of this combination in Lore :).
