  1. I've been wondering about some of the Belles.


    Six Warships are recognized for having fought in both World Wars and survived to this day.


    The surviving vessels that hold the distinction of serving in both World Wars are the Medea, which served both the French Navy and Royal Navy, British Monitor HMS M33, the British Light Cruiser HMS Caroline, Greek Armored Cruiser Georgios Averof, the Drazki a Bulgarian torpedo boat and of course my beloved Texas dreadnought.


    It seems to me they should be a bit older and more experienced and maybe make comments like "Well, back in '17..." They have been in large scale wars before.

  2. Only sank because her own crew scuttled her in order to stop the onslaught.


    No, she was dead before this and nothing was going to stop her from sinking. The scuttling was more shooting a horse to put it out of it's misery. The ship was practiacally dismantled in a vicious way by the British fleet. They took losing the Hood hard.


    But since we are saying nice things about the Bismark I'll just leave this right here.


    After the sinking, Admiral John Tovey said, "The Bismarck had put up a most gallant fight against impossible odds worthy of the old days of the Imperial German Navy, and she went down with her colours flying."

  3. If its too much management they could always be little chibi ships and just have them as equipment just providing stat benefits. Though if they were their own little chibi supply fleet...it would be absolutely adorable. Just like a mother duck being followed by ducklings. But aside from that little comment I think there could be many fun ways to play around with supply fleets.


    Maybe they could do some thing like ease Fuel and ammo consumption because you do an en route resupply. Or repairs part of the Belle's health between nodes. I really like the idea of little chibi ships following the Belles.

  4. Are we going to see ships like USCGC Ingham? they mostly did convoy duty but the fought too. Ingham was the last active US ship to kill a U-Boat. They may not be well know but these ships played a big part in the war.


    And I don't just mean Coast Guard ship but the little known convoy ships of all nations.

  5. While you do make a good point, I still think it's silly not to go with the nation that will get you to your favourite Belle the fastest.


    And that's not wrong. I'm going with the US to get my Texas and my Enterprise and CV-16 when she is launched. But that won't get me a Bismark, A Hood or a Nagato without a lot of work. I'm just pointing out this choice could be way deeper than we are giving credit for it.

  6. That's like picking Bulbasaur because it has the type advantage against the first two gyms instead of because its a cute dinosaur plant thing.


    Which Belle you think is cutest should definitely be the most important factor in your choice.


    Not really, no. You pick the nation that will support your style better. You like to send out recovery fleets to gather? The pick something that works with that. Are you just going to wait on the natural, slow, and capped resource generation? Then find a nation that has a higher cap, or faster generation. Its more get the most out of your style rather than suffer because you chose a Nation that is not in line with your style or maybe even counter to it.


    Yes Belles should matter. I want the Texas, I have made this more than clear here, but what does it matter unless I get her as a starter choice is all I'm saying. I doubt any of the Belle's I really want will be starters so why not pick what makes the game more fun for me and just acquire the Belles while playing the game?


    I picked Bulbasaur so I could name him BulbaFett and dinosaurs are cool.




    Something like the Grey Ghost won't be a starter, but you can get any Belle as any Nation- just a bit harder to collect them at start, because you don't have Diplomatic Channels.


    But if you want the Enterprise fast, starting as the U.S. is probably the way to go. :)


    See, that's what I mean. To be honest the thought that your national Belles would be easier to get than foreign ones did not even pop into my head. Working with the assumption that all the starting Belles are comparable, unless the ship you simply must have as quickly as possible the Belles should not be what you base your Nation selection on. Well, not entirely anyway. This game seems way more complex than we are giving it credit for. Diplomatic channels, Manufacturing capability, Ease of resource acquisition, should all be considerations along with the home Belles.


    This simple question actually seems rather involved.
