  1. In so far lieu of a valentines update today, have some Kenobi I commissioned.
  2. Oh, blatant thievery. At least the Italian crime around here isn’t ‘organized.’ Looking at you, Chicago. Anyways, good update, but I’m really looking forward to the next one. Because it should be Kenobi. I need my peppy pink japanese smile factory.
  3. Two more questions for the list arising from Espero’s story. Firstly: can a belle be risen from a scrapped ship If the ship is rebuilt, and if so, at what point does it stop being the same girl? Perhaps if you stop the scrapping of Florida in 1931 once the turrets were removed, would she be different the way a sunk belle returns different, or can you just plop the turrets back on and have classic good ol’ Florida back? Secondly, The US navy had a habit in the late age of sail or taking pieces from the hull of an obsolete warship being scrapped and using them in the construction of a new ship to save on material cost and time, then calling it a rebuild of the old ship to mask the tactic. Would such a tactic produce the same belle on said new ship? Ergo, if we used hull plates from the Atlanta-class USS Atlanta, presuming she wasn’t sunk at Savo, to build the Cleveland-class USS Atlanta, would there be the same belle? (presuming for the sake of argument that the Atlanta class and Cleveland class were more similar than they actually are)
  4. As a question for Fubuki and Nenohi, since your subclasses, the Akatsukis and Shiratsuyus, are closer than most, do you consider your subclasses as Sister’s as well? Would Fubuki consider akatsuki to be a sister and would Akatsuki consider the same? TL;DR, do belles consider closely related subclasses to be sisters?
  5. I believe those first two questions were actually explained in the update... the latter is a good question though. Would a mk 14 torpedo fired by belles not have to worry about a 70% dud rate and ridiculously high chance of circular runs? On that matter, were a belle like Hood to acquire a different gun, say Nagato’s 405mm guns... would she have to rely on resupply from Japan or is she capable of hypothetically firing more easily acquired british 16” shells from the gun?

    Update 163

    Odd for a US belle to complain about food. From the accounts I’ve heard, every other nation envied the food the US navy got to eat. It was apparently some of the highest quality naval grub of the war. As for suggestions on who next...let’s bring back Kenobi. I haven’t see her in a very long time.
  7. I believe some of those questions have been previously answered, Laz. Particularly the one about captains fighting a boarding event. I also figure whether a belle minds using foreign equipment is rather up to the particular belle in question. Kongo may not mind using british equipment, for example, but it’s possible she would hate to use French equipment. A belle like Hiryu may be completely against foreign equipment whatsoever, whereas Nenohi may be happily inclined to use whatever from whoever. I am interested in expanding upon the Non-navy captain question though, as it pertains to most of the player base. Is equipment restricted on a parent nation basis, allowed as required as a general INPF rule, or are non-Navy captains strictly forced to abide by military regulations?

    Update 162

    Seal couldn’t make the update today. She was busy at re-education camp. In other news, laz, I think we’ve long theorized about the deeper connection between belles and captains. I not terribly long ago there was a lore update where they tested a telepathic connection between the captain and belle. A while before that there was one where I believe belfast and Orion went into some detail on how they receive orders from their captain. I recall it being different belle to belle. Belfast gets a whisper, and Orion saw a glow or something on her target. Anyways, it’s well documented that there’s a connection that could easily extend to the captain being able to sense the presence of his belle.
  9. My ships are suspiciously being cheated of their victories. I demand a recount! Short of that I demand victory!
  10. Ehehehehehe. If I’m not wrong, you’re referring to a beast of Iron and Blood in the north, and an unsinkable icy wind who roams the pacific, yes? (This is me trying not to give it away.)
  11. Ooooh... any hints, previews, or subtle references as to who may appear?
  12. To be fair it’s been some time since I read the update. I recall that’s how her actions presented her, but I might have to read it again.
  13. Happy new year! Glad to see the devs do care. It's been quite some time since an actual development update, and we really were overdue for some numbers. It is excellent to see how close we are to finally getting this game out into the world. I really do hope it does well. On a related note, I highly recommend that BCS puts what effort they can into advertising as soon as possible. I've seen games truly live and die on advertising. One of my favorite games of all time only ever reached a server population of a couple thousand because the developers didn't care to tell anyone they made a game, and it was shut down within 3 months. It really is important in today's market. The sooner you bring up more interest in your game, the better it will do in the long run. As much as our little community is devoted to Victory Belles, it really seems at the moment to be just us. There's only double digits of members on the discord server, and I wouldn't be surprised if half of those are just people who forgot to delete the server when they lost interest in the long development process. If we're still the only ones who know about the game at launch, I fear for the game's prospects.
  14. I must confess it's me who is the most conspicuous in my absence up to this point in the thread, so I have decided to make my appearance. I have several things to say. Firstly, HOORAY! MY LADY SPEE RETURNS! In all seriousness, I must confess I am very giddy at finally getting another update with the fairest lady in it. I do love her so, and I am excitedly looking forward to how her story goes in game. As for Scharnhorst, she's really wild, but certainly worthy of my attention and my respect. I found that she carried herself very well in this update, and I am interested in her story as well. Secondly, I had been wondering for a time about the notion of two ships whose names correlate to each other would interact, such as that whose namesake was the captain of another ship. Somers and Nautilus, for example. Scharnhorst and Spee happen to be of such a connection, and with far more recent history between each other. I would have loved to see that explored more in the update, but unfortunately their interaction only lends credence to their close companionship, not to any supernatural or name-related ties. It's a fantastic pair to work with, and it's really a shame that connection wasn't explored more. Finally, props to the writers of the update for giving us a different side of each of the girls shown. We got to see rather than the neutral girl Spee generally represents, a fierce and aggressive fighter, willing and able to engage a battleship guarded by escorts, all on her lonesome. As for Scharnhorst we got to see an understanding, caring, and almost motherly side of what should normally be a violent wild spirit. It really is fantastic to see such complex facets of each belle, and I hope all the belles are as interesting as this in their writing.
  15. Not so much a “can do will do” as a “can’t do will do anyways”. The battles of third savo, Samar, Surigao, etc. provide examples of this. Because after all, what is a battleship but a really large destroyer with less torpedoes? That makes them less armed than us! It’s an easy fight. What are 2000 determined men when faced against 150 unbreakable idiots?
  16. The morgana in the interview seems to have been for the purposes of the interview, and lore-wise is likely not possible in universe. Just in case though, I’m not sure why you’d carry a mine, as that seems rather impractical, or why you’d ask Nagato about obtaining armament. I’m much happier carrying a saber to repel boarders and more than a couple personal firearms ranging in size from a hunting shotgun to a 1934 production of the absolutely adorable beretta 418. With talk in the most recent Captains’ meeting surrounding how a belle can travel via turning parts of her ship into other land-based items such as cars (a theory in which I find no credibility) I find myself wondering, if I were to make a sword out of my belle’s hull, (melt a hull plate or fixing and forge it into a blade) would it have the power to strike and harm supernatural foes, such as Morgana?
  17. I have to agree. The point has been made so I won’t stress further... but I wonder what ninja that Italian might be making for... (I must confess, I have it on good authority that the ninja is not one to run away, so a runaway he is not.)
  18. I’ll take that bet. The loss of my own run ration is very well worth the conditions of the loss.
  19. If it's more than 10 do I get a pack of ground horrifying tar for myself? Medical reasons.
  20. You probably should have clarified that it was the feeling of lewdness that was to be conveyed. Visual porn is lewdness, and the easiest interpretation of the meaning.
  21. Alright. Bit of a long one here. I am very fond of this update and Arizona's excitement at Captain-belle relations. I do believe she is correct in that the four of them are quite entitled to hugs. For the questions: 1: No. There really isn't. ------------------------------------------------------- 2: Can you draw me riding on the back of a shark and punching a Morgana in the face while fireworks go off in the background? ------------------------------------------------------------------------- To posit another question, though Belfast could not see what the Captain sees visually, is it still possible that a belle could receive telepathic communication from a captain in the form of linguistic thoughts? I would like to see a test done with words, phrases, or conceptual thought. For those who don't speak the same language, turning left is always turning left, even if the word is different. (unless you're in an absolute direction language, but those are few and far between.) Alternately, we could just spend a day lining up belles and giving them hugs. That sounds nice. I want an update focusing on how each belle responds to a hug.
  22. To make things clear, I'll claim the couple of those that were from my own mouth during the meeting. 1) All I have to say is yes hugging. 2) Pola is cute. And I think she is not all mean. I intend to put myself in the way of great personal harm to find her not-mean side.
  23. I appreciate the answers. I suppose there’s no vote this time, but I’ll still put out a vote for more Nenohi. As for this update, allI can really say is ‘yes hugging.’ Pola really needs a hug, as much as she would protest otherwise. I volunteer to be the hugger.
  24. I must admit I am incredibly pleased with this result. Nagato is a long-standing favorite of mine, and her elegance and eloquence certainly deserve some recognition. It’s also excellent to see her interested in a hobby of any kind. I do wonder what she has planned for those maps. My next vote was going to be for Kenobi, but in the interest of spreading the love around to different nations, I’ll hold off voting for a Japanese Belle this week. Therefore my vote goes to Pola!
  25. I did mean Nagato, thank you for catching that. Also, while some from the minor nations, such as DeRuyter and Velasco are well received, others require more attention, such as our lady SMS Goeben, or Wicher.
