    KS Update 127

    Well the Captain is talkactive for sure this time. Personally I would've liked a second Walküre better. And yes, I guess we now can assume that Z10 Hans Lody is in the game. Probably the worst "spy" boat in the game. A short overview over the namesake: Hans Lody was a able sailor, he got his cox patent in 1900, served in the imperial navy for one year and afterwards got his captains patent in 1904. Unable to get a captains post due to bad eyesight, he sailed as tour guide with ocean cruises mostly into the United States, which gave him excellent english skills, with reportedly american accent. This led him to offer himself as a spy at the outbreak of WW1. Due to overconfidence and bad prep he was discovered after only two days in England (but at least he got in) and personally revived the English tradition of executions in the tower of London after 167 years. He was the one executioned. I really like the revelations about Belfast nonetheless. Since she seems fond of C.S. Lewis after 1931 (his active conversion to the Church of England) and seeks a book of a member of the Orange Order/ Ord Oráisteach I jump to the conclusion she's a unionist. A question I raised in an earlier update. @TwoHeavens@Wellington99 As a German captain that puts her a notch higher on my "naughty" list than most ships of his majesty of England. I don't entirely get why Mr. Power is so very irish (his mother isn't as far as I could find), but also he is married since April 1939 to a french actress. So there's that. (Her first, french husband spoke fluent German btw.) Also by now the inbox of the KMM is flooded with letters demanding the person, body, head or ... other body parts of Mr. Wellington99. The rewards vary, but most of the letters come from various Irish militant groups and the unionist ones are rerouted to the British via the INPF as a sign of good faith. I guess their king will remind them what the HMS stands for. I also should get busier on the forum again I guess. And that's my new years resolution then.

    Update wanted: Dead or alive

    Most honourable @Legate of Mineta since the last Update skip was on September 7th, I wonder what happened to the update this week, expected for September 21st. Could you tell us, why it is overdue or not happening?

    Go Navy, Beat Army!!!

    Trust me, if they hadn't it would've been far worse than 95-0 in 2017. More like 200-0. The mens scoreboard is slightly different. All the more reason to cheer for them, right?

    Go Navy, Beat Army!!!

    Okay, can we all agree then to cheer for the ladies of the Royal Navy on May the 3rd 2019 to try to make their first win ever? And on May the 4th 2019, when the men play against the British Army and get ther long due win after 8 years not winning. Who cares about the Royal Air Force anyway? (The games are both on April 5th 2019) This was a PSA for @Wellington99

    Victory Belles Lore questions

    I know who you're after. Even TH smelled it instinctively. If they really put that possibility in...... if you'd raise me with your british crew..... I'd rather sink myself again. It's also true what he says about the spirit passing on. C/Köln, Karlsruhe and Brummer are out by this as well. But you know what they'd be perfect for, strictly storywise speaking? First Morganas to be encountered by the Royal Navy. Because they hate you but are also outdated..... but that's just me.

    Since our british refs usually talk about it I initially thought of this handegg game. But oh, yeah that makes much more sense. @DrYuriMom That is an amazing commission. Pensa looks very cool. I was just confused about the skirt, but wikipedia solved that quickly. Thank you very much for that contribution. 😍

    KS Update #124: On Destiny and Wrecks

    In other words all updates happen sometime in 1939, but before Sep 1st 1939. And in certain theories all at the same time. dun, dun, dun.....

    Victory Belles Lore questions

    That was talked about and answered by Goeben alias Yavuz. Edit: I would like to know which U-Boot commander is the most favoured by the known U-Bootwalküren or if not favoured, the most inspiring? I believe the answer to that question could be useful to all captains.

    KS Update 123

    The writers deserve a more qualified response than my vote. This is a really nice and beautiful piece of Text. I like it very much and read it with joy. The idea of a Walküren representative vote is very likeable and I hope Lebi won. It certainly would explain the state she's in. "WAAAAIL" - I'm pleased to see you can do this in english as well. I didn't know that. "Axum: But I know what it is to labor under leadership which does not speak for the good of all. " Am I the only one thinking of Benny M. reading this? "Aoba: I am not. But this is the flash before the powder ignites." - There's powder? Now that I've written it down I realise there certainly is powder. But what is the powder? "I-8: You’ll make sure we’re taken care of, won’t you, Kanchou? You won’t let her be the death of us all, will you?" - Jepp, definetively Lebi. "Hood: In the end, the number of votes I needed to push my candidate over the edge… was relatively small." - .... .... It was single cast, relative majority vote? Heh. (<- very much a laugh) Also I didn't see Hood coming as the Walküre disqualified. I had other Walküren on my mind to be honest. For the redacted one, my money is on Giulio Cesare. Now why I chose 2. It's obvious, really. Option 1 would've been a lie. Not even @Wellington99 voted 1. And he's british! Option 3 is a bit too fatalistic for my taste. Also, no. I want to hear every explanation. Option 4 can be figured out in other ways. If the Walküren refuse to tell me, I can ask the INPF. Option 2 on the other hand has all the things I like. Putting pressure on a HMS, cornering her and personal satisfaction. German (*snicker*) down here:

    Kriegsmarineministerium

    I put it here as a rare example of lower German. We even got it teached in school, because our half-polish music teacher wanted to preserve lower German in some of us. And don't be irritated by the pseudo medieval sound. The song is much younger. Probably 17XX's. And strictly speaking it's a tiny bit amorale for puritanic people.

    Kriegsmarineministerium

    Edit: Since this game sports captains and not admirals I changed my Screenname accordingly. I'll won't change it in the text below so it stays original. (for english scroll down please.) Guten Tag Kameraden, eins vorweg: Dieses Thema ist für alle die beabsichtigen die Kriegsmarine im Spiel zu Ihrer Hauptmarine zu erklären oder bevorzugt KM-Schiffe einsetzen wollen. Da es aber auch einen guten Teil Rollenspiel umfassen kann/soll, setze ich es hier in die Schreiberecke und nicht in das generale Forum. (Liebe Moderatoren, wenn ihr denkt da ists besser aufgehoben, dann verschiebt es ruhig.) Um mich kurz vorzustellen: Ihr werdet mich als Admiral Korky hier im Forum kennen und kennenlernen. Wie man sich denken kann komme ich aus Deutschland und egal wie schlecht dein Team ist (streng genommen spielt man ja Nazis, wenn man uns im Spiel nimmt), du hälst zu ihm oder du kannst mich mal. Daher nehme ich die Kriegsmarine und werde aus ihr eine Reichsmarine formen. Also möglichst keine Walküren die sich als Nazis zu erkennen geben einsetzen (ja ich meine dich Nürnberg). Das wird im Spiel auch meine eigene Beschränkung sein. Walküren wie Nürnberg, Camicia Nera oder Canarias werden auf der Ersatzbank landen oder in einer Schurkenflotte zusammengefasst. Himmelfahrtskommandos müssen ja schließlich auch gemacht werden. Allerdings weite ich diese Beschränkung ziemlich aus. ALLE Walküren die zu politische oder unkameradschaftliche Wesen sind, werden so wenig wie möglich eingesetzt. Also auch viele Sovietschiffe oder Kriegsverbrecherinnen wie I-8 (wenn ihr die Interviews lest, wisst ihr was ich meine). Der Fokus liegt auf einem Ziel: Der Kampf gegen die Morganas und die Gesinnung muss so edelmütig wie möglich sein. Wobei.... ich denke jede "Partywalküre" wird einen großen Platz in meinem Herzen haben. Kirov, New Orleans.... ihr wisst wen ich alles meine. Bisher gibt es ja nur ein paar kurze Filme zum gameplay und die Interviews. Daraus ergibt sich für mich folgende vorläufige "Traumflotte": Flaggschiff KMS Scharnhorst oder KMS Admiral Graf Spee, Schlachtschiff.... HMS Hood, Kreuzer.... IJN Kumano, RN D'Aosta, Kirov, USS New Orleans und HNLMS Michiel de Ruyter , Flugzeugträger Hiryu und Zerstörer Hans Lüdemann, Diether von Roeder, U-Boot Surcouf. Man wird sehen ob sich das bewährt und wer in Zukunft noch vorgestellt wird. Was denkt ihr? Wie schaut eure Wunschliste aus? Achja und fachsimpelt hier ruhig rum. Sowohl über Werte als auch Charakter der Walküren die ihr in eurer Flotte sehen wollt. Oder eben nicht sehen wollt. // Good Day dear fellow Admirals and Captains, straight away: This topic is for all who want to play the Kriegsmarine as their main fleet ingame or want to use KM-shps as their favourites. Since you can place a whole lot of RPG in here, I thought it would be best to place the topic in the writer's corner and not the general forum. (dear mods, if you disagree, feel free to move it.) I will now introduce myself: You will know me or know me already as Admiral Korky within this forum. You might have guessed me to be from germany and since it doesn't matter how bad your team is (considering you're playing nazis, if you choose germany ingame), you'll stick with it or can go.... well whatever. Because of that I will choose the Kriegsmarine ingame but will try ignore a certain austrian corporals influence on world history. So all belles who are open fascists (yes, I'm looking at you Nürnberg) will be placed either on the substitutes' bench or send on suicide missions. But my limitation won't end with fascism. Most of soviet belles are far too political and open pro communism and some other belles from other ideologies are morally impure as well. Morally impure means loosely being in love with their "home-system" or their leader more than me and the mission or being of corrupt behaviour at sea. Either in character or in service records (surprise attacks are NOT impure.... stuff it Mahan). For example I-8 is to me a war criminal, nothing else. Read the interviews and try to see what I mean. BUT..... every "partybelle" will have a big spot in my heart..... Kirov, New Orleans... y'know who I mean. Until now I have only read interviews and watched the short updatevideos about gameplay. Through this I have formed my "dreamteam": Flagship: KMS Admiral Graf Spee or KMS Scharnhorst Battleship: HMS Hood Cruisers: IJN Kumano, RN D'Aosta, Kirov, USS New Orleans and HNLMS Michiel de Ruyter Carrier: IJN Hiryu Destroyers: Hans Lüdemann, Diether von Roeder Submarine: Surcouf the future will tell what other Belles will be added or if this team will prove itself. What's your opinion? What's your ideal Marine? I'm eager to hear your replies. And please speculate to your hearts content about german belles and which one you would love to see..... and which ones you disregard. Alle Mann an Deck, Admiral Korky P.S.: Ask me for german words or translations. I love it.

    Update 122: Fleet Problem Onepointfive y'all

    I think I understand now. right before Spee fires on Lexington, Kirov misses a shot on Henley. So it actually might be Kirov reacting, while Spee not waiting and returning fire. Very German. We're here to fight, not to chat.

    Wha....how? I just rewatched it after reading your post and now I can understand it perfectly. Before I heard something like "Nimm das!" (I heard "Nims", to be precise). How in Äsirs name..... nevermind. Additionally I would like to applaud the voice acting, especially the Graf Spee one, for a job well done. I really enjoyed the update, despite my nagging above. And I look forward to the night battle. With flares and lights etc. Maybe we even get to see a new Walküre again. :3 For me having stereotypical silhouettes of the ships helps me to quicker recognize and organize unfamiliar ships. And then those X's could always stay in the same place and also help me with localizing damage, if I missed the text popping up. I still have some questions. Explicitly not nagging. I really don't get it. 1. Why is there still a dogfight after Kaga is sunk? 2. What do the little pennants with the roman numerals on the side represent? 3. Water in the portrait means flooding, fire means, well fire, but what does a partially broken glass mean? 4. Why did Nautilus surface? 5. Why did Fubukis fire still grow after her death?
