  1. I think what the fellows before me where trying to say was how would Belles react to "fan" stuff?

    I brought this up in the Discord recently. I would be curious about their thoughts on it. Like, how would Belles react when they find out about their own fanclubs? Would female USO singers be dressed up as Nevada or New Orleans to ride the popularity wave? Would stag magazines have Belle pin-ups? .....Tijuana bibles?

    What about official government-sanctioned stuff? Maybe for a cartoon instead of Donald Duck in Nazi Hell-land, it's Henley (don't worry, it was all a bad nightmare and she was in the free US this whole time)? What about the thoughts of the Nazi or Soviet belles on their respective countries' propaganda posters?

  2. I know I brought this up over a year ago and might be a good time to bring it up again, but how exactly will you drag the interests of 1000+ people back to VB after 2 years since the Kickstarter? You can give them the beta keys, but I will be surprised if only 100-200 actually activates them and even less stick around for more than a month, and that's even with gameplay finally being shown after over a year of "fluff pieces" that is mostly just Belles dialoging between themselves and the captain (with maybe a tiny update on the game itself shoved in there at the end [or at the very beginning]).

    This forum isn't that active, and the unofficial Discord has 70+ members, but only 30 online at a time. It's even less on the other social medias.

    How exactly is BCS going to advertise this game to regain at least some of the backers that lost interest? Will you guys get a VB booth at some big anime contentions? Facebook ads? Tell me, I'm curious.

    I want serious answers please. None of the cutesy stuff that skirts the main part of what I'm talking about (you know....like last time :V ).

  3. Welcome back!..... ok, see you later then....

    I'm surprised you had come back here despite you kept bringing up the people who you had bothered nearly *2 years ago*. I think that's a long time to hold a grudge honestly, and I had hoped you moved on with something better to focus on.

    Might as well play Warship Girls or Azur Lane (or WoWs I guess) to keep passing the time until VB launches (I bet the beta won't be until October, lol).

  4. I like pictures where the same ship from alternate games hang out, or in this case, ship sisters from alternate games (especially if they include ships from Warship Girls, since that one is the least popular out of the 3 shippgirl games already out anyway).

    I need to do a proper 3 Belfasts pic sometime in the future...

    I, however, do believe I speak the opinions of us clue hunters when I say that we would not like you to make the clues easier.  I think a large part of what has been keeping our interest these many months is the long and arduous searches on each and every little thing we believe to be a clue.

    I never said to get rid of the super hard clues forever, just to have a better range of difficulty of them in each update (when needed). I just felt like last update was just mostly these hard clues and I brought up that most people might be confused. Well, I assumed so, because most VB fans might not have super deep navy knowledge.... unless all that's left now are the latter of those kinds of people and VB noticed and are aiming at them with these updates. Scavenger hunts can be fun, I agree. BCS can add a super hard hint for those hardcore fans, but at least have something else for the others that might be challenging but fun (but nothing too easy that it insults our intelligence :P).

    I was just saying that it’s 7 vs 7 Belles, instead of 6 vs 6. ;)

    We think it’s very good to give feedback- in fact, I’ve already sent it to the Team.

    Well, I got (justifiably?) angry because it seemed like something that actually has been on my mind for months gets completely brushed off while something not even the main point of my feedback got a flippant remark. I felt like a goddamn idiot (for just asking to maybe make the hints not so esoteric?).

    Well, maybe any future feedback I might have might get relayed by someone of higher standing and a high chance of getting actual serious replies. welp, back to lurking I go.

    Its 7:7. ;)

    And here I thought BCS was open for any feedback and constructive criticism about their game(s). My bad, I won't do it again.... (or writing up at least anything taking more time than is necessary.) :wacko:

  8. Going against the grain here:

    I'm getting a bit tired of the cutesy fluff pieces the last few months of updates have been, so I'm really looking forward to finally seeing some game play footage, like damn! Especially the 6 vs 6 Belle slugfest. The other non-battle parts of the game is still unfinished so I heard?

    Now for this update in particular, I wish I could get into it but all the [Redacted]s just left me in a tailspin of confusion and I just can't help but imagining Mississippi having a dinner party with shapeless, nameless Belle ghost blobs (this is as I described it to the VB Discord lol). I could maybe figure out only one [Redacted] but from what Korky's spoilers say, for example one [Redacted] sub "loves costumes". Okay? That's a terrible hint to casuals like me, and seems to be aimed at US Navy turbo nerds which I assume not many of the VB fans are.

    Having a range of hint difficulty is fine and can bring people together to work out the hints, which is pretty fun. I just feel like this update was "out of reach" to understand on my own.

  9. If the game has a big enough following in a non-English country/ries (for example, Germany or maybe the Hispanosphere ), would the VN parts be fully translated in that language in the future? I know it is a huge, expensive undertaking though since iirc the total word count for the VN parts is around 2 million words.

    I believe he would hear constructive criticism - If a person has a valid reasoning, the artist could either explain why he ignored said reasoning, explain the purpose behind its denial, or even learn about it and use said interaction to improve, even if slightly, his trade. I also remind that experienced art critics sometimes accept the lack of art teachings if the said artist goes against it in a specific manner, be it to express something or to communicate some notion of value. Since the hair-eating eyes, born from poor experience in layer drawing, is a part of an anime stylization that ended up having a specific charm within the community, its correction didn't evolve and has been allowed to strive as it is. 

    (Off-topic, I wonder if Salmon agrees with this perspective and could share some experiences with us)

    He'll probably ignore the harsh/bland ones. Since our community is an adult, moderated one (at least that's what I've seen so far) that accepts open dialogue, he'll be hearing us at least.

    He might take it to heart or he might not, it's up to him himself.

    Jojo just a very taciturn guy even if you try to talk with him in Japanese. You only see him talk at length about stuff on Twitter (he goes on for several tweets about VB updates, for example), but never to anyone else. (He seems like an interesting person and I just want to be friends with him ;w;   but I can't help it(or try to) if I'm so boring to him, so such a feeling that ends up being non-mutual and it makes me depressed).

    Back on topic, I learned that concrit is needed if you ever want to get better at your craft, along with self-studying etc.. I sometimes ask the Discord for feedback on a WIP sketch, sometimes I don't. It really depends on my feeling on the pic itself.
