DISCLAIMER: THIS STORY TAKES PLACE IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE; ONE WE ARE GLAD WE DON'T LIVE IN. A complete analysis on the sinking of the Bismarck(British Version) We are rather unclear about the events during and after the sinking of the Bismarck. This is the best explanation we can offer. At around that day the Bismarck sank or something, the royal navy dispatched HMS Rodney and HMS Ark Royal. Now this was probably a good decision, as Ark Royal was probably one of the most emotionally secure ships in the entire RN and wouldn't fall for Bismarck's confidence-undermining techniques. Rodney's attitude was, on the other hand, slightly troubling... but it was all a ruse to get Bismarck off guard. (Or so claims meta-academic epidemiology) Anyways, the Bismarck's rudder was hit earlier by velociraptors. After that, the captain of the Ark Royal decided to send torpedo rocs to destroy the Bismarck once and for all. On 8:14 (BTW 60% of the statistics in here are made up) in the morning, the torpedo rocs lifted off and began attacking the Bismarck. For some reason, the resilient gruyere the torpedo protection was made of was actually swiss, and the torpedoes easily blowed a hole in the side of the Bismarck. The ship capsized, and yet the Admiral was nowhere to be seen. Later, both Admiral Lutjens and the ship Bismarck were rescued onto the HMS Rodney, then transferred to the Ark Royal. The two ships apparently shared a piece of gruyere cheese armor and quickly build a relationship, then transferred back to England after the sinking of the Ark Royal. Epilogue: Ark Royal and Bismarck Are on an unknown area of the British Titan colonies under the witness protection program, in a scandal involving the HMS Prince of Turtles (Hey we couldn't come up with better names so don't judge)'s Phaser mounts, which were later discovered on a french battlecruiser. War almost erupted, until France threatened to activate Vacuum Decay if Britain declared war.

warheart1992 posted a topic in General Game DiscussionNow, I also drew a Makarov, but I'm kinda content getting the ship since I find it's history interesting. What is this you may ask? Well, it's the way Makarov, or to be more precise Nurnberg ended up in the Soviet Union. Pay attention and you might find how a historical event is a cautionary tale that applies even now in our pixel game. Not only that, but this makes Makarov the best possible choice for a ship reward of the type. So, on May 27 1945 Prinz Eugen along with Nurnberg and escorted by Devonshire and Dido reached Wilhelmshaven. Both ships would remain there until their fate would be decided by the Potsdam Conference. To quote https://hamptonroadsnavalmuseum.blogspot.com/2019/01/the-navys-most-unwanted-ship-and.html Now you may think that the fate of Prinz Eugen and Nurnberg was decided by lengthy negotiations or something of the sort. But actually: Yup, you read it right. They drew lots out of a hat for warships. Now that's all a fun and interesting wartime trivia. But here's the nice comparison. Place yourself as the Soviet representative. You want Prinz Eugen for your country. You could say you want one of the super rare lootbox drops. You are actually allowed to do so, but only if you can draw the proper lot out of another Admiral's hat. Same as the lootboxes, though the Soviets had a 33% chance of getting Prinz Eugen so that was far more generous at the time. Instead you pick the wrong lot and end up with the unwanted, old vessel that doesn't offer anything interesting. Same as you actually getting a ship from the boxes but ends up being Makarov. Do you see it? WG has managed 100% player immersion with this move. Now you can feel the exact same way that a Soviet Admiral had when he drew the wrong lot, saw Prinz Eugen ending up on the United States and he was stuck instead with Nurnberg. I don't think it gets more historically accurate than that. But hey, at least you aren't the British that probably ended up with that crappy a lot that I can't find what ships they got. And this is why every time I think of Makarov I smile. Hope this brings some smiles on an otherwise crappy incident.
