Yes I did, I used Manga Studio EX5 to do the whole drawing. Even though it was in digital, it actually took a long time o.e; I'm hoping WG accepts late submissions lol ;~;

OK, I will try to update this post, but I was scrambling to get this scanned and posted by the deadline, and laf, I made it by 1 whole minute. :D

EDIT: OK, here is my hosted copy, as opposed to the one I uploaded (see thumbnail below for that one).  The two drawings are identical, I was just having a lot of trouble getting photobucket to behave this morning so I uploaded a copy to the forum so I could make the deadline.

omg this is hilarious.  People do that?... lol

 

This is awesome too

Can't think ahead? Play cruisers instead.

Cruisers aren't OP, they simply reward reactionary play. Reacting is their job: using speed and firepower to flex across the map as necessary. Battleships reward predictive play; their job is knowing what will be where and when, and choosing where to make a show of force appropriately. Prediction of naval disposition is the mark of a good admiral. Any decent captain can react to a situation, but the admiral must know the situation before it unfolds. So I challenge you to ask yourself, are you a captain or an admiral? -Special_Kay

When you die (in game), you should run a commentary on the other players who are still alive, with any luck they will be distracted by your comments and they will want to "friend you up" coz they think your so clever and comical.

 

Always keep well away from your team mates. you dont EVER want to bump in to them. They are only Joking when they ask for back up, so why be near them anyway?

What got me the most about this contest were the number of posters who a) thought this was an appropriate thread to post their grievances with the game, b) posted a list of advice suggestions instead of just one, and c) tried to give -good- advice when the title of the thread and the personality of Cappy is all about -bad- advice.

 

Ah well, 'tis the community, and at least people are posting, right?

Not a bad advice but how about a little vid series of how to correctly pronounce the german, russian and japanese (and that blis thats actualy pronounced bwis in polish or so) etc ship names.

 

Could be fun and helpfull, considering how often I hear reviewers and streamers wonder about if they pronounce it correctly.

 

I would even vollunteer for the german names (as a german ;))

That would be nice. And you could put a link to the sound file on the wiki as well. Although I guess if I wasn't lazy, I could put the names into Google Translate. Although I've heard it isn't always the best.

P.s. I'm not picking on anyone, I was just too lazy in the past to do what I did above. I still can't quite say Blyskawica right. :)

Japanese names are actually really easy to pronounce. The thing you have to understand is that Japanese has very consistent pronunciation rules. The vowel A is always an "ah" sound. E is always an "eh" sound. I is always an "ee" sound. U is always an "oo" sound. O is always an "oh" sound. Additionally, every syllable ends in a vowel (which is to say, every syllable has precisely one vowel), with the sole exception of the letter n, which is a syllable unto itself (unless followed by a vowel). For the ships that have letters like ō (Myōgi, Kongō, Fusō, Tenryū, Myōkō, Zaō, Kagerō, Yūgumo), my understanding is that you extend the sound of the vowel so it's like saying that vowel twice. Given the lack of an ō or ū keyboards, these are usually rendered as Kongou, Myoukou, Yuugumo, etc, though you might also see Kongoh or Kongoo (which are both valid). Though you'll rarely see Myougi or Zaou, because those are papers ships with fictional names, so unlike Kongou or Myoukou you don't have KanColle players coming in that are more used to the "ou" spelling. About the only confusing thing once you get those rules down is figuring out which syllable to put emphasis on.

 

Alternatively, go to the KanColle wiki, look up each ship's page, scroll down to the start of the Quotes section, and listen to their introduction line. Since they all say their name in their introduction, it's a good way to hear actual Japanese people pronouncing the names.

 

For Blyskawica, it's apparently something like "Bwiskavitsa."


one of these days I'll get above T8, probably

I mean it'll probably be if I grind up to Kiev and they give me a free T9 when the new branch comes out but it could happen

these DDs are really getting out of hand

Syllable emphasis is actually very straight forward. For two and three syllable words, you always place emphasis on the first syllable. So Yamato is pronounced YAH-mah-toe; Kaga is pronounced KAH-gah, and so on. Four syllable words and higher generally place emphasis on the second syllable of the word instead (ex. Hatsuharu as "hah-TSU-hah-roo"). I'm told this by a clan mate who speaks fluent Japanese, so it should be a reliable rule to go by.
