    Here it is folks: Snowflakes, Directives and PR Build for 0.8.11

    People saying 15k doubloons was excessive... so Wargaming goes 24k. Enjoy your fake ship.

    So I Just Finished Kancolle...

    The problem is, if they followed WW2, the girls would have started dropping like flies. I get what you're saying, and I even agree with a lot of it. I just think they wanted something lighthearted and rather shallow to compliment the game, rather than a particularly engaging narrative or refighting of the war.

    I got an Arizona?

    I wish AZ handled better - that's the reason I never play mine. She just loses too much speed in turns. It makes 21 knots feel downright glacial. WV '41 is the better boat.

    selling steel in santa crates?

    I wonder if they'll do steel monsters again, or if it was just a one-off.

    Needed: Mouse captain.

    My grandfather was the spotter on the float plane of USS Springfield in the closing years of WW2, then spent the next 30 years touring the world as a helicopter mechanic and then FEMA representative. He's half deaf, but it's astonishing to talk to him. We on these forums go in circles here about Hitler and Stalin, and here's an individual who watched the former's rise and fought against him. My dad was in the Navy JAG Corps for 25 years and is now the head of a major government agency. He went from doing duty in the jumpseat of P-3 sub hunters, and sleeping in bunks on Kidd- class destroyers, to speaking in front of senate committees. Nothing in my life even approaches the seriousness, integrity and sheer magnitude of their own. To dismiss them - their advice, knowledge, and guidance - out of hand would be an astonishingly shallow, absurd, and pathetic move. You say that members of their generations believe they should have a say in guiding my life? I am privileged and honored that they would deign to take such an interest.

    I'm not even 40, but yes, I do think their experience matters a lot more than our generation's blind parroting of bad ideas. What a notion - that people with a lifetime of accumulated wisdom might trump the perpetually-adolescent idiocy of a generation raised on participation trophies and no-fail grading curves. That meme is tantamount to a campaign slogan for the catastrophically stupid.

    Just finished watching Castlevania (spoilers)

    I was, however, really disappointed with the pacing of season 2. The script read as if it had been expanded from 4 to 8 episodes with a ton of ditched ideas from season 1 utilized as filler. Whenever your three primary characters are stuck in the basement of a library for 3/4ths on an entire story arc (literally), you know you've got problems. I mean, good grief, the series is called Castlevania; it's about time spent crawling through a fortress so large that it is frequently the entire game's content. And they can only devote one episode to attacking it AND fighting Dracula?

    I do. Obviously. Fawning over people performing very minor deeds has never been my strong suit. I do not believe we need to further inflate some of the egos that already dominate these forums.

    Not needed.

    Making Femennenly a in-game captain.

    Why? This hero worship is getting a little pathetic.

    Boy, that was depressing. I've always been a fan of Dracula - not just in the Castlevania games, but in Bram Stoker's original. He's rather easy to sympathize with, as far as villains go, although Castlevania's transformation of the character into essentially the ultimate misanthrope is particularly compelling. Though I knew how the things would end - had to end - I was really sorry to see Vlad go. His intervention on behalf of Isaac was, arguably, the best moment of the entire series, and while I know Dracula will return (my guess is at the end of Season 3), it will never really be the same. Canonically, his death via Alucard was really the destruction of all remnants of his soul - I doubt he will ever be shown in such a relatable light again. I'll be honest, much as I really liked Trevor, I was left wishing Dracula had won. He's the most interesting of all the characters, and it sucks he always has to lose. I don't believe this series will ever allow him to win, so - invariably - he'll just wind up dead again :[.

    Gneisenau with 280mm guns as t5 prem?

    Scharn w/o torps would be far worse than GC at tier 5. Her armor would render her nearly indestructible, she'd have the best AA in the tier, and her guns - regardless of how derpy - would still be putting 9 x 11" shells into the field with a third faster reload than GC. Frankly, it wouldn't even work at tier 6. NOW, knocking PEF's sorry behind down to tier 5 and giving the ship a WWI configuration? That would be fine.

    So when are Santa crates coming this month?

    I, too, believe that the crates will arrive with the patch. Really, there's no reason not to have them come as soon as possible. The longer the sales window, the more WG makes.
