  1. Last, but certainly not least (but terribly endangered to relegation), I finally added Pola. Now all teams currently available for the Walküren have a description. Direct matches: Chiyoda 1-0 Perth Nagato 1-0 Aoba INPF1: Chiyoda and Perth met in direct match and Chiyoda sunk Perth and surpassed Verdun (same points, fewer matches). Also Tenryuu rejoined with a win and makes a giant leap out of the relegation spots. Apart from that Pola made 4 points and thus surpassed Houston, Lex and Saguenay all at once. Suddenly the relegation is a purely USN affair. For now. apart from that nothing changed on the first 8 places. Everyone except Belfast and Conte have someone to fight with for rank. INPF2: Exeter got nothing from two matches. The Kriegsmarine mostly failed, only Spee won. Which gets her back into promotion ranks. Axum played her last match for now, but the result will only be in next week. And her timing is horrible, because the IJN behind her sprung almost entirely back into action. Kaga is back with a loss. Nagato and Aoba immediately went after each other, with the Battleship besting the cruiser. And Takao at least got a point. The last USN Walküre, Nevada is also back, but got nothing to show for it. All of this shakes up the lower regions nicely. Inactive Walküren: Kumano, SL City (INPF1) and Kitakami (INPF2)
  2. I added Хьюстон Direct matches: none INPF1: Almost all teams left points on the field, with Algerie and returnee Kongou as exceptions. While Kongou climbed in front of Perth and Augusta that way, Algerie wasn't so lucky and Moskva made 4 points and thus got in front of her. In the pretty broad danger zone (Kumano and below) duds were had left and right with the notable exception of returnee Lexington. She scored 3 points. I also finally applied the secondary sort of fewer matches = better, so those 3 points catapulted her right out of the relegation zone. INPF2: The top 4 Walküren all went flawless, but Hood and Exeter again scored twice. so the only hope is the cropping at the end of the season will draw them closer. I still haven't decided how to manage the vast differences in matches at the end of the season. There were also a lot of draws this matchday in the 2nd division. The whole Kriegsmarine i.e. Axum managed to use her point to push past Kaga, making the dormant Walküren now the end of the table entirely. Apart from that nothing changed at all. Still dormant Walküren: SL City, Kumano and Tenryuu in INPF 1 (3 out of 20) Kaga, Nagato, Aoba, Takao, Nevada and Kitakami in INPF 2 (6 out of 18)
  3. I'm so glad you asked and join the ancient ranks of one of the oldest documented practical philosophical problems known to Europe: Is the ship of Theseus still the ship of Theseus? Welcome to the Theseus Paradoxon!
  4. Still no beta..... But I totally loved Espero and am glad she is exactly the Walküre I suspected after her interview and fell in love with. 😍
  5. I added Saguenay and Kitakami, finishing all INPF2 teams. Direct Matches: Parishkaya Kommuna 1-2 Béarn INPF 1: Clear winners of the matchday are the Soviets. Leni and Moskva crushed the opposition and are the only two Walküren with more than 3 points. Getting Leni up into the top 3 again. There were also a looot of postponed or canceled matches for the ladies, so 0 points doesn't mean defeat. Except you're Conte! Yes, the Italian lady stumbled, ending her latest 7 win streak. Belfast also got defeated. In a nice change of things our two bottom Walküren, Pola and (back in action and honorary soviet) Houston won each once. Pushing Lexington to the very bottom. And if you dislike Canadians: Saquenay lost twice. Next week I eye Kongou and Lady Lex to rejoin. INPF 2: The Top 4 all won, so no change at the top. However Béarn managed to prevent P-K from scoring. And Canarias scored 3. So P-K now has Canarias breathing down her neck. As a little side note: All three french clubbed Walküren in 2nd Division have very strong French 3rd division teams. Ironically the table leader, Dunkerque is the worst of them in INPF2. But maybe not for long. Scharnhorst equals the core with her sister, but apart from that there is no change on the table for today. Still dormant Walküren: Kongou, SL City, Kumano, Tenryuu and Lexington in INPF 1 (5 out of 20) Kaga, Nagato, Aoba, Takao, Nevada and Kitakami in INPF 2 (6 out of 18)
  6. I added two Yanks: Lady Lex and Nevada Direct matches: Parishkaya Kommuna 1-1 Dunkerque Arizona 0-4 Wichita INPF 1: While Conte continues in her perfect flawlessness, Belfast managed to at least score 6 points an close the gap a little. La Motte-Picquet used a thick 6 point week to send Leni out of the triumvirate of leadership. Talking about Leni: She's back. Mixed start with 3 out of 6 points. At least she can now fight that French pirate. Her sister was a bit more busy and got 9 out of 12, keeping both Verdun and Perth finally at bay. Algerie had a bad match and Perth again only played remi, so Verdun now snuck up to her. Köln went emptyhanded, so did Pola who rejoined the active teams. Oh and did I mention some non European Walküren started to warm up and played matches? *takes a deep breath* Augusta did fine and scored 4 points, so did Chiyoda, our Canadian Walküre Saguenay restarted the championship with a win and Wichita came out of the box with a double strike, one again Arizona from 2nd div as a friendly. All of that shook up the lower regions of the table quite a bit, but the beauty sleep leaves a lot to catch up. Next week more will join. INPF 2: In the second division Exeter stumbled heavily with 0 of 6 points, which Hood used to at least see her in the distance again. Bearn and Spee also made 3 points, so they follow in equal distance hand in hand... or kicking and screaming.... P-K and Dunkerque met and fought to a remi, see above. An opportunity seized by Canarias who snuck past Dunkerque because of it. Arizona got devastated, but in a friendly way, by Wichita from 1st div. So no points for her. Gneisenau and Scharnhorst on the other hand scored a whole point each. Nürnberg even got 3 points, pushing her past Kaga and Axum used her own 3 points to jump directly behind Nürnberg. Speaking of the IJN Walküren, they'll mostly join at the end of the month. Still dormant Walküren: Kongou, SL City, Kumano, Tenryuu, Lexington and Houston in INPF 1 (6 out of 20) Kaga, Nagato, Aoba, Takao, Nevada and Kitakami in INPF 2 (6 out of 18)
  7. Muhahaha, Alpha test confirmed!!
  8. I added some irrelevant Walküre.... hasn't even had a first peek or something.... tsk. And our only submarine of the league: Axum she also completes "Team Africa". Direct Matches: none INPF 1: Conte did her best and got 6 points, while Belfast got sloppy and lost. This makes Conte a very lone first, indeed. The pursuer of the top too left feathers, but the lowest of the active Walküren, Verdun and Köln managed each to win, bringing them to safety. And the US and IJN fans should slowly get some blood pressure lowering medicine or opiates...... INPF 2: The top 3 all fumbled a bit and only gained 1 point, giving AGS the opportunity to close up again and she used it. Apart from that a mixed bag, but Canarias got 4 points and finally left the twins behind her. Axum sadly could not advance behind Nürnberg, but at least she gained 1 point, which is more than Nürnberg got. Reactivated ships: none, probably Pola next week.
  9. Yeah, maybe in the allied forces.....
  10. At first I thought American Football, then Karate...... only my third attempt was stage dancing. >New minor objective for the entire Kriegsmarine: Steal a French coat for NewO. And my first genuine thought on the food was: They're serving French destroyers? Also I would personally argue Stopfleber is the worst. Note further the Kriegsmarine has very little difference between sailors and officers meals. That lesson from November 1918 sticks with the Deutsche Marine to this day. The only ones getting "extras" are U-Boot crews. The only permanent "extra" officers get is a way more comfy mess. It also has the bonus of keeping the caboose smaller. And powdered egg is versatile. Or does the USN serve it raw???? So long for now or until I get a better look at NewO.
  11. I added Tenryuu and Takao, which leaves only one Nihon-kami-maru. Direct matches: none INPF1: At the top Conte di Cavour continues to reign supreme with two victories, while Belfast tries to keep up with a win of her own. La Motte-Picquet closes in on Leningrad, while in a small twist of events Algerie had no match at all. Perth continues her winning streak and snacks Augusta and Moskva, but Verdun also had no match for even stranger reasons..... why had LMP two then?? And Köln returned with a victory which catapults her away from the bottom! INPF2: In the second division, the first four ships all fought without a flaw. A bunch of other teams had curiously no match this week. Canarias now leads the fascist infight in the midfield. But Axum had and won! She's now into striking range to leave the loser three and ascend into more proper regions. Reactivated ships: Köln
  12. I added Perth and Nürnberg. Nürnberg was possibly the most excessive read so far. Just compare this with this AND that. Yeah.....good thing I could stop in 1939. Direct matches: none INPF1: CdC and Belfast won their match each and distanced themselves from Leni a bit more. The pursuers of Leni on the other hand scored accumulated 0 points and stay where they are. Perth scored again and is now firmly in the midfield, going up and Verdun at least managed to follow her this week. Everyone else is firmly asleep. INPF2: In the second league, the big event is, the Kriegsmarines return into action and starting the "big awakening" together with Dunkerque. But while Dunkerque and very surprisingly Nürnberg start with a win, AGS and Scharnhorst lose their matches (too busy with an argument about an duel?). Gneisenau manages to score at least one point. Exeter can widen the gap to Hood and P-K is now in striking distance to AGS. Axum was embolded and won two matches in a row. Catapulting her past poor Kitakami. Nürnberg also profited massively rank wise from her win. Most Walküren are now active again, the remaining have to wait at least a month to rejoin. Reactivated Walküren: AGS, Nürnberg, Gneisenau and Scharnhorst are back. Dunkerque, as well after a one matchday break.
  13. Hm, Kremschnitte...... And when the talk about the Napoleon cake from the other side of the door came, I was sure THAT was not Nerpa. And after the update I'm really unsure if I want her near my crew.
  14. Happy new year folks! 🎆 INPF-L is back. By cunningly skipping the holidays I just can continue with at least the French, Italian and some rather exotic Walküren. And not only the English, because English are crazy. Not in a good way. I mean, football on Weihnachten? Outside a proper battlefield? They even made me extend my calc table.... The newest club additions are Japanese heavy cruisers Kumano and Aoba. So despite Kami-marus being all on break, they get spotlight. Direct matches: No. INPF1: Oookay, Conte starts with a victory in the second half of the season, but Belfast celebrates a 4 victory streak since Christmas as if it is nothing..... and.... still doesn't surpass Conte. For very personal reasons I'm unhappy with LMPs victory. And our Aussie Walküre is slowly, but steadily climbing. This week jumping three places ahead. Verdun missed her chance to climb at least two positions entirely. INPF2: Blimey.... so, Exeter and Hood had several matches as well, natürlich. They gathered a lot of points by that and sailed pretty much away for now. But Bearn als passed AGS.... with a suspiciously low number of matches. And by that P-K is closing in as well. Sacre bleu! Surprisingly Gneis had a match.... and lost.... against a Belgian. Everyone else came back victorious from the holidays. Well.... Axum had no holidays and no wins, but at least she evened the score with Kitakami. One point and she leaves last place. Dormant ships: Dunkerque actually. For reasons she will rejoin only next week. But dormant is dormant.
  15. We did? I admit my fears of Schranhorst being a goof got a bit bigger. Dueling someone over the risk the other put themselves in? Before Iget a bigger headache just let me note that Scharnhorst does NOT excercise the (Prussian Officer) code of conduct for a proper duel here. So Spee is in the right. And that's totally ignoring the question, if Walküren are satisfaktionsfähig in the first place.
  16. Meri Weihnachten tutti! The American/Freedom translation: The authorized Soviet version:
  17. No club updates and last update for this year. I'm in Winterpause, together with zhe German league. Direct matches: [redacted] could become the bane of Conte, if she ever joins the league with her more..... right wing.... club. INPF1: Conte left points on the pitch in a cup-finale against [redacted], but her advantage in points is comfortable. And Leni is out of the picture for now. Everyone still active scored as well at least one point and it somehow slipped my attention, that Köln is now dormant until February. So, Perth closed in to Verdun but nothing else happened. INPF2: Biggest surprise happened at the bottom, where Nürnberg scored 3 points. And now goes to sleep together with Scharnhorst for winter. Hood has regained 3rd position, evening the score with defenseless AGS and Arizona was pushed down further by PK. Canarias surpassed Kaga. Dormant teams: Köln, since I forgot her and Scharnhorst and Nürnberg. Gneisenau has one match left, but I will not report on it until the new year is a few days old. Canarias has short break, which will be shorter than mine, so I won't put her in Orange.
  18. Oddly empty, considering the cheers I read on dicored abou this update. The triggered update/launch debate was dealt with in another thread. First of all: I liked this update as well. It matches my expectations for a story driven game and the plot was very enjoyable. Also laz got a question answered by it. Yay! Belfast averted a very angry rant on the very last moment there. I really liked how we got to see two related Walküren interact with each other and how a Nixen battle was told from their point of view. And Scharnhorst is my second favourite anyways. She simply proved it. If her sister is a bore, which I doubt, she might even earn top spot. Btw, what's a Tramp Steamer? A steamer full of Tramps, or unemployed Hollywood actors and actresses in this case? I also have no idea what a Buster Bergholm or Busby Berkeley are supposed to be. The inevitable German lesson:
  19. Added Salt Lake City and Canarias Direct matches this week: INPF1: The tables have turned. This week Conte won both matches and Zenit Leningrad dormant with a loss. While Belfast drew again. In a string of fate with Conte, La Motte-Picquest defeated the [redacted] who defeated Conte last matchday. Quite impressively. Getting 6 points this week, LMP is on a roll. Algerie and La Motte Piquet both surpass Kongou and Perth scores a decisive victory, jumping finally off last place and climbs 6 places at once. Which pushes Houston on the precarious spot. INPF2: Not much movement at the top, but that might change as AGS is now on winter break. Same goes for the bottom, Axum is no shooting star and Nürnberg collected at least one point. Dormant teams: Leningrad now follows Moskva. Pola wet on winterbreak until end of January and dropped to last place for it. AGS went skiing too, but she will return in the middle of January and rests much more comfortably.
  20. Thx Schwarzbart. This bunch of ship crazy folks that makes our community had discovered the news already a few days back. BUT no one bothered to post it here at all and I personally appreciate an article in my native language. For some odd reason everyone around me talks English on the discord.
  21. New updates are Chiyoda and Gneisenau 🥰 Direct action this week: Ленинград 3-0 Москва́ ; pretty much what you'd expect when checking the table. Verdun 0-1 La Motte-Picquet ; same as above. Also you might count Conte vs. [redacted] where one of [redacted] teams kicked Contes back side quite firmly. Btw I have a very clear vision under which circumstances which team will represent [redacted]. INPF1: So yeah, Conte lost for the first time since the INPF-League started or after 19 undefeated matches. Leningrad catches up by beating her sister, which now drops out for a while. Tenryuu goes dormant in INPF-League in relative safety, but in the real world her club got relegated to J2-League as last place in J1s 2019 season. Condolences to all Tenryuu fans. Paradoxically this could boost her chances here. Chiyodas team is vice-champion and as such qualified for AFC Champions League. Omedettou!! The two French did the opposite thing: LMP won both matches and Verdun lost both matches. Köln got its match cancelled, because a local rival had a "unsuitable field".... Pola lost yet again, but Perth won, equalling in points with Pola now. INPF2: Exeter picked up speed again and won both her matches. While AGS stumbled and fell on her nose a bit. Allowing Bearn to catch up to her. And for her last seasons match, Kitakami scored a point. But now for the anticipated news..... AXUM finally joins the fray and with a win!! Congratulazione! (Okay, she lost her second match, but who cares?) Dormant teams: INPF1: Moskva left for winter break, so until March she will go into hibernation. So doe Kongou, Chiyoda and Tenryuu, but because their season ended. More teams will follow soon. There are already more teams dormant than active. INPF2: Kitakami is the only one here, bute as above, more will follow soon.
