  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Meri Weihnachten tutti! The American/Freedom translation: The authorized Soviet version:
  8. 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.
  9. 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:
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Sometimes it feels, you only work on Fridays.
  14. Spee was, as commander of the whole squad, also commander of Gneisenau. So I'd guess AGS got a "close/trusted friend" status with both.
  15. Geeze, I really forgot to update teams for a while now. Have Москва́ and Парижскую коммуну Action this week was only indirect. Well... Moskva played with herself and won.... but that doesn't really count, does it? INPF1: Our most noble Conte slipped a bit this week with only 4 points in 2 matches, while Leningrad got the full 6. Belfast won, but missed one match opportunity. It was postponed until further notice. None of the bottom 3 scored, so every USN fan can take a deep breath. Remember USN Belles are dormant for a while. So it looks like the table moved, but it did not really since all movement was push down of USN Belles. INPF2: For an INPF2 it was quiet. Most notable in the upper regions AGS snuck closer to Exeter and Bearn managed to surpass Hood. Biggest surprise however was Scharnhorst getting 6 points out of two matches which shoots her up the table quite a bit. Didn't see that coming. GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! Axum had her first match yesterday, but the courier with the match results takes a while from East Africa, so I get the results only next week. I hope. (srsly google lists the league finally nut can't produce results younger than 48hrs) Doesn't matter. Nürnberg and Kitakami wait for her......
  16. Here we go again after another national team break. In which btw all European INPF League countries and I believe even "misplaced" ships like Pola (today in Croatia) qualified for the Euro-Cup next year. Yay! (Correct me if I'm wrong) But on to the league. Direct matches: INPF1: As expected most dormant ships loose at least one position or will soon. While the top remains de facto unmoved, Belfast did not excel the best she could and Algerie looks farther back than she is, since she is also 4 matches short of the others at the top. At the bottom of the table Köln and Tenryuu managed to score for a change, so they climb a little, but everyone below Verdun is in severe danger of relegation. But then the season will only reach half time, when the other Japanese ships and their teams fall dormant in December. So all can change. INPF2: Good news: Axum should be game by now. Bad news: I might not know until December, because I found a way to follow, but they update with a small delay of a week or two... Anticipation rising. For the already competing ships ...WTF Exeter! 4 matches! You're supposed to be a third league team! And what a run! Damn.....see you then Graf Spee. Now Spee probably regrets losing Copa Libertadores to a Brasilian team double. Over all the top half of the table did quite well for themselves. The lower half not so much. Nagato and Kitakami failed to score completely. Kitakami will fight on for two matches, but with little hope. Her team will drop from J3 league to JFL, but since that's a national league and easy to follow she will also rejoin us next year. So if you like Kitakami, get out your tissues. Scharnhort dropped quite a bit, but will probably correct that soon, since she is now stuck directly behind a bunch of dormant ships. New Dormant: Nagato, Kaga, Aoba and Takao since J2 has ended. Aoba before Kaga ended up pretty much in the middle and Nagato below. Tako was nearly relegated, but they'll all stay in J2 and will come back in spring. Curiously only J2, but not J1 or J3 ended yet.
  17. One more thing: No one in Germany knows the term "Ponzi-scheme". So the captain would've to explain it to her. And she would recognize it as some form of "Schneeballsystem" (snowball system).
  18. Okay, the US Walküren are out of the picture for now. So are some Japanese and soon they all will follow, since they're the only two countries with a "calendar season", instead of starting in the summer or, like Ethiopia, in autumn. Direct matches: Damn..... Leipzig has no official Walküre. Anyways, to answer the question from last week: Tenryuu 0-1 Chiyoda AND in a sudden twist of events, Takao 1-0 Nagato INPF1: Nothing new at the top, but Belfast was probably distracted by the recent update and let Leningrad surpass her. Algerei and Kongou will soon sack the defensless Augusta, but if the miserable 4 at the bottom of the table will ever get past her, I seriously doubt. While Pola and Perth at least scored, the loosealot Köln has now a loss streak of 6 consecutive losses at her keel. INPF2: The two top teams didn't make the best of it and are no on equal points. Meanwhile Hood got close to snatch rank three from a dormant Arizona. The biggest gain had PK who is now in the upper midfield and Aoba and Takao surpassed the dormant Nevada. And Kitakami at least scored one point this week. Axum still has two weeks to go before possibly, hopefully joining the fun.
  19. Ugh... the awareness Deutschland has in 1939.... best not to think about it.
  20. No dev update = German nonsense. Note how the lyrics fit the update.
  21. I could say something about that, @Panay's Ghost, but I bind myself to not talk to enemy captains about such things. I believe however, U-29 meant Dr. Wolfgang Metzger, currently in Frankfurt at the Goethe-University and a member of the party. *hugs the Belfast*
