Expanding Kaiser Lore

One of the most annoying things about fleshing out these World War II inspired factions is that there isn't enough territory in the setting to go around. I mean we've got America, the UK, Germany, France, Japan, etcetera. There are only a handful of habitable worlds,...

Thumbnails Finished

The thumbnails for the Admiral Hipper, Cosmo Messer F2, and the KM-3s missile are finished. A bit rushed but they all look decent enough, especially the F2. Have a look. I also squished the frames a little to give the subjects more screen space. Once again, I think...

Cosmo Messer F2 Progress

It's pretty much finished. Unfortunately there are still some workshop related things I need to do and I don't quite have enough time for all of that tonight. Hopefully I'll have it sorted by tomorrow or sometime in the middle of the week, but if not, next weekend at...

This Sparks Joy (World of Warships)

by | Jan 13, 2022 | Journal, WoWs

The latest dev blog from Wargaming sparks joy. Well, one part of it does, at least.

Yorktown and Hornet

Never getting my hands on Enterprise really really hurt, but if the rest of the Yorktown class carriers are coming, that’s quite the consolation. I’d rather have the full set, but it’s not like Enterprise was deleted from the game. The ship still exists and so do I, so there’s still hope someday. For now, I will gush over the first and last of the Yorktown class fleet carriers.


The more Takao class cruisers there are in the game, the better, I say. I was surprised Maya’s only going to be a tier seven ship, but the modifications to the hull and armament could justify it. With a reload booster, faster torpedoes, and a heal–on a T7 cruiser I might add–Maya’s looking to be quite powerful at close range. I’m looking forward to her full introduction.

This Does Not Spark Joy

Super carriers … yeah I don’t hate the idea on principle, but my biggest issue with World of Warships is how toxic and reactionary the community can get. Any time Wargaming pulls something like this, I’m going to hear about it in-game. I’m going to be hearing about it from all the content creators. I’m going to be hearing about it pretty much everywhere.

I’m going to be hearing about it for months.

It’s just one of those situations I’d rather not have cross my eyes or ears at all, but that’s just the way things work, sometimes.
