Hi guys!

 

So I was on discord when @Battleship_MaineMk1 mentioned that he heard TheURLGuy say there was a secret hidden in the article about the halloween event. I was pouring over it but found nothing. Then a tweet from URLGuy, saying @IronDuke17 found the secret. @mfumukoskoldpadda linked it in discord and behold!

Some analysis on the subject:


The name: Promethean Society
The Promethean Society is a real organization comprising of people with extremely high IQ's, however, they were founded in the 1980's.

 

The motto: Ignis A Dis
A phrase I remember from back when I was an Altar Server for my church. The first Sunday of every month was latin mass, and one of the copies of the bible was written in Latin. One of the phrase when speaking of the 7 deadly plagues of Egypt spoke of the experience of the locust through the eyes of a non-believe. His words were "Ignis A Des", which means "Fire from the gods".
 

The Captains name: Karl M. Allenson

While the name doesn't mean much, Karl is German. This leads me to believe that, in regards to the story here, a German captain, possibly a destroyer captain due to the fact that the Aniversary Missions had a requirement for German destroyers, stumbled upon it. Hitler was hellbent on acquiring relics during World War 2, so a UFO would not surprise me. However, this one is completely a hunch on my part.

 


More speculation:

Submarine: One map had a Yellow submarine on it during the event. Though it may be meaningless in regards to this, however, it may have some value.

This is going to be choppy:
During World War Two, the British would spy on the Germans. Due to subs being small and secretive, such as the presence of German agents, I would believe that the sub means that someone is spying on the Germans who possess the info on this spaceship. The mystery around this could also be called an "enigma", of which the British cracked in world war two. Therefore, I believe that somewhere along the line, either a sub will be involved in this, OR, we will see the british steal the documents.

I know this is quite a reach, BUT, I would not discount anything WG, let alone the URL Guy does, as not plausible.

"Speculate away," he says.

 

Okay, now, the letter is dated October 5th, 1941, or about 6 years before the Roswell Incident which drew the minds of the American public towards the stars and started some of the first alien conspiracy theories, as well as one of the biggest ones: Majestic 12.

  For those of you who don't know, Majestic 12 is the name for a hypothetical agency created by Truman to recover alien wreckages and cover them up from the public, as well as not let them fall into enemy hands. The FBI looked into these documents and declared them bogus, which, of course, only served to deepen the convictions of many "ufologists" that it did, in fact, exist.

 

However, here we can see that, in WoWS, at least, a similar organization to MJ-12, if not Majestic 12 in name, is already operating in 1941.

 

On a side note...

That comic that WG released today is very intriguing to me.

 Being the huge Mythos (and by that I mean Cthulhu Mythos) fan that I am, this depiction is oddly similar to a sort of Yellow King, however, instead of the Yellow King being a madman set on reclaiming his lost empire of Carcosa, we see this king as attempting to escape, and the players seem to be tasked with... protecting him? Or, perhaps, the king is mad... and we are just his henchmen.

I recently read a novel in which the Yellow King was being escorted back into the world via interdimensional gate with a horde of demons (read: Cthulhuoid monsters from another dimension that existed to eat our brains). 

 

Perhaps, we're escorting the yellow king back into our world and we'll be the cool monster ships and the regular fleet ships will be defending the portal between worlds.

Not sure many people will remember this but back in 2014 WG April Fool's joke for WoWP allowed you to fly in a German UFO. http://wargamingamerica.com/world-warplanes-get-branch-ufos-april-fools-day/  Don't know if or how it might relate to WoWS but it is proof that WG has used UFOs aligned with Germany before.

Warning, that's the 6th in a series and it's a decent series. It's a cross between James Bond, Cthulhu-mythos, and Harry Dresden. 

 

EDIT: It's the LAUNDRY?

So Graf Zeppelin will be getting flying saucer torpedo/dive bombers? As for Ignis a dis, or "popcorn from the heavens", this is clearly of interest to me..

I have a feeling we will find something in sector F6 in the TOTD map. Someone open up a training room to find out, quick!

...

Oh, wait.

I am dispatching HMS Leander to the quadrant. Expecting resistance.

I enjoyed it for while. But the last one I read was just too much. I get making other characters the lead, but I didn't enjoy it like the stories with Bob.

Something of interest. This isn't the UFO from Tears of the Desert like we saw in the game.

This one is sitting upright instead of on the side. It also details it as "Silver grey" while the one in game was a blue with bright blue lines. It also appears to be in a slightly different shape then the one found in game.

This could be poking fun at the conspiracy theory that the Nazis escaped to Antarctica and have building UFOs for some reason. The UFO found in game could possibly be a reverse engineered UFO by the Germans seeing as stated above the name is slightly German in origin. Just my two cents.

So, I rarely play the Tears of the Desert or Seas of Fortune maps as T7 is pretty much my cap for playing ships. I wandered into the training room to check these out.

 

I went to TotD to find the flying saucer and like others have mentioned it is no longer at F6. I did find some blue boats below the town on the island at F6. Were they there before?

Spoiler

I went to Seas of Fortune and the two yellow pillars seem to be at G/H 11 instead of F11. I didn't see anything at F11. The island at F9, just west of F10 has three seemingly equally spaced 'buildings'. I didn't get to try the short lived fortress missions, so I don't know if they are those. I don't think they are the shore batteries from the operations either, but I could be wrong. What do y'all think?

 

Spoiler

two yellow tower portals east of G/H 11
