  1. But do her Kielbasa bring all the Germans to the yard? Nice seeing Wicher again. I too want Eddies interview rather sooner than later.
  2. Direct Matches: Verdun 1-0 La Motte-Picquet INPF 1: The new year starts slow for most teams. Belfast starts the new year with a win, and so does Chiyoda. The latter even winning the Japanese League cup. Omedettou! A contrast is AGS who had to play four matches and had a rather.... mixed performance. With only 4 points from 4 matches. Giving her the push past dormant Tenryuu, but then losing steam significantly to reach the top.....Hood however basically copies that result with 4 points from 4 matches, overtakes dormant Lex and then stops. Conte sees this weakness and uses it. She scores 2 wins in 2 matches and gets past Hood that way. Still topbound. Leni and Moskva have to stop playing for the time being, because of the still ongoing pandemic. Our French ladies had a direct duel, which LMP decided for herself. Apart from this both only gained 2 points. Overall it brings LMP into the front pack and Verdun ploughs post some helpless competitors. She also gets to her halftime of matches played. And from the depths of the table Algerié rises. In a stunning 12/12 matchday she makes up enough ground to put herself from back end position to a comfy midfield position. And given she has even less matches than Conte, she's now in the position to strike. INPF 2: The table leader of INPF 2 seems to be always bound to start struggling. Thus Exeter disappoints with a 1/6 performance. But since she's comfy in front and her "direct" competition is asleep, she's safe for now. P-K also does her the favour of losing, but in a sudden twist o events, Canarias scores a 3 win streak an is now in 2nd, behind Exeter. Scharnhorst also doesn't too bad and scores 6/9 point, which sets her in a position to perspectively compete for promotion. But she crosses the 50%, so she'd need a strong second half for that. Nürnberg on the other hand loses her momentum already and drops dead in the water with 1/6 points. Dunkerque does the same. Köln surprises everyone with one of her rare wins, but gains nothing for now. Gneisenau had one match, got a point from it. Also dead in the water. Bearn had it even worse. She had three matches, like Köln, but gained zero points from them. All three Walküren have reached their 50% of matches now.
  3. Wow, Mahan scheduled her. That was way back then..... I like the hint about Scharnhorst. Now I really want her and Lebi in one fleet together. Even though I won't hide my disappointment of Gerhard being used as comic relief. And given her sister is August... that makes for a missed opportunity. What's so demeaning about it? And if all of them feel that way -as Bellies reaction suggests-, why was the admiralty board so mean? Or crude? Or both? *plans to go rogue intensifiy* Can someone please explain to me Auld Reekie? I get the words, but who or what is it referring to? A mascot skunk? Mascot skunk confirmed?? And who killed it? Can we avenge it? And what's "barry" in the given context? On a different tune, I actually posses a written version about the events in question at Glencoe...... Talking about things familiar and starting with "Glen" (yes, I know what a Glen is, too), the last time I had Glenkinchie was ages ago, see, the story starts in 2001 and..... but I digress. Why Glenkinchie? Nearest distillery to Eddie? Only Scotch the author knew? Tell me about it. Ohohoho..... she speaks on behalf of the Town-class sisters..... so there's more than just two of them in the game? Just to anger Mr. Wells, I hope for Glasgow and Liverpool. "Of the names in their foul language from the uttered only in depths of Hell" - yeah, yeah, just say it already...... Ah yes, that cute thing at Invergordon. Worked like a charm and well "mutiny" is such a harsh word for it. Kiel was a mutiny. Invergordon was...cute. It was an ordinary strike. Cry me a river. Treating the officers with respect.....pfff.....mutiny. Also it was successful AND embarrassed the Royal Navy...so much they struck the Atlantic Fleet and renamed it. And nobody died. So what's not to like? What's warm sporran? And how does it taste? They say "och" in Scotland, too. Noice. Overall I'm a bit ambivalent about Eddie. On the one hand her positive attitude, especially towards alcohol. On the other hand I'd probably need to be tipsy the whole time to endure her skittish and apparently unreliable nature for longer terms.
  4. I'm German. I call every U-Boot an U-Boot. Also German is an official Italian (regional) language. In Südtirol the Germanophones will call it U-Boot as well, no?
  5. Okay here's a little more sophisticated look at the video: One Morgana we can identify for sure is "Fire" on the far right of the Morgana spectrum. 0:45 reveals the front Morgana to be Dismay, the far left to be Mistrust and reminds us of Avarice (next to Fire). 0:49 shows Mischief to be left to Dismay. 0:54 gives us Despair to be to the right of Dismay. Wait had I just forgotten how she looked? And 0:56 completes the set with the last missing one to be Venom. @NinjapacmanWhat do you make of the wooden plank of the Japanese kamimaru between Lampo and probably Jaguar? I will point out U-37 was a prime predator. And looks good. :3 At 0:17 point out every shadow and win the respect and admiration of this forum. Tfw you think "wait those were only 10 nations" and they hit you with a giant Swastika!! Lebi 🥰 The teaser hands us a prime opportunity to ship Verdun with any aircraft carrier. :3 I really like the new world map. Are the Morganas depicted the local "bosses" or "just" Morganas present at that location I wonder. Regions map looks interesting. So you have an area with paths, which you can scout and progress on. Reminds me of another game in which I liked that mechanic. The resources shown are (probably) Crew, Fuel (a barrel of oil, even though my fleet runs on the power of love! Yankii developers....), Ammo, then two construction resources maybe (Steel and stones?) and the last one I have no idea. Range? Radiation? We'll find out. There also seems to be time limit. And can you deploy your ships at will or will they be auto-assigned (in the first screen 4 ships in 2x2 fleets)? There are also harbours? Hm, what purpose might they have? :3 In the second screen, the one with pupper Pupper you can clearly see Hainan imho. And yes, who is #2? She seems to hold a slingshot? What is that gold V medal on the Kirov and Aoba screen? And is that Venezuela? The cloud seems to indicate "weather". I totally love the moving chibis. I want to look at them all the time!! Oh and I notice different "waves"..... Oh, I don't think we have been introduced to Calamity prior. I'll codename her Jane. For obvious reasons. And our old flame Corruption is there too. Short musical intermission, see below for why: Next up are Sedition, Sabotage and Mischief.....followed by more Sedition and Sabotage and then Vanity, Sin (hello there) and Sedition again.....Sedition all over the place.... Is there a Sedition song? And Queen Mary gets revealed. Which renews the debate of Team SSS (2 members) vs Team QM (everyone else it seems). See my previous post. Then more Morgana enter with Treason, Despair, Starvation, Confusion and Murder. Anyone counting and keeping track? Cause I ain't! And now we have to add Venom and Asphyxiation, who we already know of, courtesy of U-29. And slingshot girl is Boiky! Morganas still not finished with Injustice popping into view....briefly. Oh and Fire gets confirmed I guess (see above). Injustice - only blind on one eye...hah! And then we have a nice change of screen: Levelling up. NO needs (counterclockwise) Special Acknowledgement, Mardi Gras Mask, King Olivers Kreole ...radio, Zora Neale houston....books, Borbon Milk, CA Pacific International Expo.....blah, U.S. Protection Kit.....which consists of papers? .... Not condoms? Feel free to tell me something about it yankii. I'm always curious. Anyway there is an honour, accoutrement, music, library, recreation, good luck charm and home front support slot in that order. So speculate at will what it could be for YOUR favourite Walküre. there is also some interesting info about NOs weaponry and what gets affected by levelling up on the right side. The equipment peak screen is at 1:03, tmi to comment on all of it. the little stars in the top left corner look interesting. Wonder what they'll be for. Also I guess the "base screens" are revealed here. Please have a look for yourselves. But what might "commissary" be? 1:04 - wait a sec, you can outfit each battery? Whoa. And QM with a FuMG. Nice. :3 Maybe Ninja is right after all. I will still not budge. Where would be the fun in that? And i see the RM-1. 1:07 reveals everyones favourite money drain: The shop! ***mis the Mayan Goddess..... HMS Artemis? AND the star stuff resource is revealed: Shop currency. Yummy. And who might our cute shopkeeper be? And you can buy Amenities and...diplomacy?? Gosh, since I saved myself -and my money- for this game, I will be all over the place. And then there is yet another new Morgana, with Disease. Love the face mask. Some fighting to round out the video aaand done. thx Mahan. @Shirogane I found the following new ships confirmed, so you don't have to read all of this or watch the teaser in such detail: British DD Zulu, Italian DD Antoniotto Usidimare, German U-37, Italian U-Boot Archimede, British Passenger Liner Queen Mary and Soviet DD Boiky.
  6. The trailer is warmly welcomed by me as well. And I love it when I'm right. Don't you? Like here and here. In stubborn defiance I will call Queen Mary a red herring. I will stick to SS Scharnhorst. Streng dich an Lebi! Wir glauben an dich! And i like the new revealed German sub. Achja, frohes neues Jahr euch allen.
  7. Frohe Weihnachten. And yes, I own all of the things they mention and use them.

  9. Direct Matches: Tenryuu 3-2 Takao Leningrad 3-1 Moskva Aoba 1-1 Kaga INPF 1: As the year comes to a close and a VB Trailer lingers on the horizon, Chiyoda shows her skill one last time for this year with a double victory exit. She's also the first with only 10 more matches to go. Belfast had more matches and while not perfect, manages to snatch Chiyodas lead on matches alone. Tenryuu also reaches the 10 matches to go mark and sends Takao home into the new year with a win over her. AGs uses a very good 10/12 points matchday to overtake the dormant Lady Lex. Contes rise on the other hand takes a hard dampener with only 3/9 points. She rules at home, but was a bit out of her water in international waters. Hood can capitalize on that weakness with a mediocre 5/12 performance, but it probably will not last since she's already on twice the matches as Conte. Leni got rather frustrated (and the author rather delighted) with a loss internationally. She apparently vented her frustration not only on Moskvas Dynamo, but also on Moskvas Spartak, just to hammer the message home. It at least brings her past two dormant yankii, if nothing else. Moskva gets a very used matchday, not only but also thx to her sister. This finally separates the Russian siblings. Kongou lost her shot at the Empress cup in the third round, giving her at least 3 points, while Kumano sadly lost in the second round and goes empty into sleep until March. LMP puts in a real effort and now trails Leni, just like last season, but farther down the table. Verdun also has a very good matchday -compared to the season so far- and breaks contace with the relegation zone. After a cautious start, Algerie leaves Perth in the dust at the bottom with a 10/12 matchday and makes an attempt to get out of the relegation zone. And since Perth lost against Chiyoda last matchday, she has to let it happen, since she will be dormant until late January. INPF 2: Exeter has an average matchday with 3/6. How much it will save her in the end is uncertain atm, because of her huge lead in points and matches to any competitor. Like P-K, who only has one match, but at least gets a point to show for it. Kaga (and most of the other IJN Kamimaru) concludes her season for this year. She, Nagato and Takao have only 6 matches to go. Kagas end of the year is disappointing with only 2/9 points. Her duel with Aoba gains both only one point each. Takao on the other hand gives herself a nice push towards years end. Only losing one match against INPF1s Tenryuu and winning the other two. Same goes for Kitakami, so both push back into the promotion spots. Nagato only manages to score 3/9 points an thus loses contact to the IJN block. Canarias scores a win and pushes past Nevada. Dunkerque reaches 50% of matches with a disappointing double loss. This helps Scharnhorst with a round of everything (1/1/1) to take back a position in front of her. And even Nünberg saily by, with 6/9 points. Gneisenau only had one match - onoe point, okay, maybe, not helping certainly. Talking about sailing by... the fact Pola rests until late Jauary sailed past me. Bearn performs also poorly with only 1 point and Aoba seems to have already lost her steam with now only 1/9 points this time. Köln on the other hand can keep her small momntum and scores 4/9 points, getting her behind Gneisenau and of the bottom. And very bad news for Axum. Apparently the Ethiopian Premier League was cut back from 16 ti 13 teams and I can't find her club anymore. Which means she is eliminated. Which makes me really sad. It also cuts the matches to play in INPF 2 by 2.
  10. Christmas Eve is "Heiliger Abend" (Holy Evening) here.
  11. I will point out Weihnachten starts the 24th over here. So I hope "before Christmas" is the 23rd the latest.
  12. GKS bis Nov 1941 (Top Secret until November 1941)
  13. Direct matches: Perth 0-1 Chiyoda Dunkerque 1-1 Bearn INPF 1: Belfasts men stemmed all the matches since last matchday. With 4/12 points their result is mixed and Belfast gets pushed past the 50% match mark. Chiyoda fares only a little better with 6/15, but it is enough to reconquer the top! And give Perth a very rough welcome to the "new" season. And while Lexington keeps on fighting, Wichita loses and thus falls dormant for now. Tenryuu sees her Chance and overtakes BOTH of them despite the gap between Witch and Lex being 7 points. Back in Europe, Contes women have -again- only one match, but win it. However Contes next opponent is the dreadnought of European womens football, so her impressive 9 win series might come to an end soon. Moskva plays so-so with one loss and one win and fails to get past Arizona. LMP on the other hand has entered a very lousy phase and after 3 losses in a row only scores one point out of 12 on this matchday. Leni is literally a bit out of her waters and it shows. But 4/12 is enough to improve her position and push past her sister at least. A true highlight of the matchday is Admiral Graf Spee. She delivers a 10/12 four match run and steams past a third of the table even ahead of Conte an Wichita, getting into range for the top group. And only Conte is potentially up there with fewer matches. Kongous league has ended, but now the Japanese women entered the Empress Cup, so any of them can be eliminated or proceed and Kongou..... keeps on fighting with a win. And while Kongous result was close..... Kumano..... well Kumano furiously eliminated her opponent with an impressive 11-0 show of force..... yes, Kumano. Our Kumano with a negative points to match ratio..... or...equal ratio now. And she even climbs a rank. Back in England, Lady Hood passed her 50% mark with a respectable 8/12 points, getting her comfortably out of the sights of relegation zone. The same can not be said about Verdun who has had a lousy matchday with 0/6 points, getting her nowhere. And finally, finally Algerie and Perth join the fight for the championship. Algerie with a single draw and one point and Perth with a bloody nose from not only Chiyoda and also one point, but out of 15 possible points. INPF 2: Exeter opens the table with a strong show of force and 9/12 points, pretty much cementing her spot at the top. Her direct pursuers make this even easier as all three of them only score five points in 10 matches. Together. Takao scores at least a win, overtaking Kitakami. P-K sees this, says hold my wine and just like that comes from behind to push herself into 2nd position. Nagato goes with the Japanese INPF2 flow and scores only 3/12 points. Canarias sails past her 50% match mark with a disappointing 4/12 performance, but at least it keeps her "in touch" with Nagato and gets her behind the dormant Nevada. Scharnhorst gets and admirable 3/6 matchday, but it gets her nowhere. Especially since Dunkerque and Bearn play a friendly draw amongst each other, which gives Dunkerque a 4/9 matchday and the one point she needs to put herself in front of Scharnhorst. Pola doesn't get nothing, but one point is too much to die and too little to live. Especially since Nürnberg overtakes her with one win in two matches and Bearn -like Dunkerque- gets 4 points and now is equal with Pola. Gneisenau even presents her first matchday where she isn't beaten and gets with 5/12 points behind Dunkerque. And very much to my personal dismay, so does Köln. *sigh* We always trip over the "weaker" ones..... anways. Köln gets her personal seasonal record with 4/6 points in one matchday, keeping the fight against the bottom open. But the best for last: Aoba completely changes her fortune with the forced switch to the means team and crashes into the table from below with 8/12 points. More than she scored the rest of the season. Axum has not played yet, but I reckon her schedule is finally online and will start in exactly one week from now.
  14. As a helpless oranjeboo, I consider every update with De Ruyter a win. Getting the expectation lowered from beta to trailer is a small downer. Overall a great update. I really liked the first look.
