Voting Intricacies

7 posts in this topic

There seems to have been some confusion over the past couple months about voting.  People don't realize what can and can't be voted for.  I hope to clear all of that up for you now.  With the end of the old board, it's a bit of a moot point, but since there are a lot of random write-ins anyways, I figure it's probably a good idea to make it clear anyways.  I hope this short guide helps everyone to understand the intricacies of voting.  If I missed anything or you have any questions, please let me know.  I will do my best to answer your questions or edit the guide to include what I missed.

 

Let's start with the basics.  Belles whose faces have been revealed can be voted for.  Since the board has been finished, however, they have run out save for one.  Köln was revealed in art by Salmon 88.

There are belles whose names are hidden in the original Kickstarter updates who are available for voting as stated by Legate here:591fa47856965_Confirmedbellesinthekickstarter.JPG.3ab1ead5db65fcb137d904e2742a62cd.JPG 

There are currently 5 that have not been interviewed, found in the following places.

Most of these have been interviewed, but the ones that have not are as follows:  U-29, Gneisenau, Aoba, Takao, and HMS Orion

Legate also stated here that Belles that are in interviews past the end of the Kickstarter campaign cannot be voted for:591fa5d7d986d_Bellesnotconfirmedininterviews.JPG.14a868d1e014d38765f1661880fc7037.JPG

The reason for this is that BCS has neither the time nor money to make every ship mentioned in another girl's history.  This means that ships seen in places such as this cannot be voted for:

Furthermore, Morgana have been stated several dozen times as being unavailable for voting, so while you're free to vote for whatever you like, you are wasting your vote by asking for a Morgana.

@zhao-zhanghua  Those were all in interviews past the kickstarter, and even if there's a good chance they'll be in game, they're not confirmed, and therefore not available for voting.

I find your "guide" way too slanted Ninjapacman.  Yes, people had questions on what can and can't be voted for.

The answer is: whatever warship they want.  Even Morganas.

The rub is that except for ships confirmed as Belles - and the absolute best way to be sure is that there's an image of her - there's no guarantee the ship in question even has a Belle.

Note that I said best way, not the only way.  As you have pointed out, Gneisenau, Aoba, Takao, and Orion are mentioned by name in the KS.  Just yesterday Orion and Takao became Confirmed Sightings.  Does that mean Gneisenau and Aoba are also Belles?  The probability is high.  Can they be interviewed?  If/when the Captain's Association has a majority decision to request one of them, we will find out.

 

Morganas were removed from the board because the team said they couldn't be interviewed.  That hasn't stopped the Morganeers from voting week after week, just to see what happens.

The team could would laugh and could decide not to do an interview.  Legate has been consistent throughout:  you never know unless you try.

 

DO NOT tell someone else their vote is wasted, Ninjapacman.  No matter how remote the chances.  Ever. :angry:

It's the principle of the thing.

I'll admit my phrasing is a little too assertive in the guide, however, the information presented is correct.  I would like to once again remind you that there is no question of whether or not Aoba and Gneisenau, as well as U-29 and Koln are belles.  Every single one of them IS confirmed by BCS as having belles and being available for voting.
