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...

Clan Battles 6/29

by | Jun 29, 2022 | Journal, WoWs

Well, overall it went well enough. I had to call all of the games for the sub-clan, but as I’ve said before, I’m resigned to this. Show up for things consistently enough and at the very least you’re going to wind up being promoted to a doorman.

One thing that got under my skin was the utter lack of comms discipline. That got us in trouble a few times. It wasn’t major, but if you’ve got enough casual players mixed in with competitive ones, distractions and idle chit-chat in the middle of crucial calls are bound to happen.

Des Moines

She really is a female anime protagonist. Easy to underestimate–and to citadel but that’s beside the point–but deadly in the right circumstances. She’s also got all the tools she needs for controlling a cap.

I honestly never thought I’d see the day when I stopped seeing Russian heavy cruisers as an existential threat and started seeing them as an opportunity to farm citadels. A few more replays and I might be able to slap together a compilation.

She’s fun, but map awareness is this ship’s lifeblood, and islands never feel quite as shallow as when you’re helming the DM. That’s both good and bad …


My first games with her didn’t go well. I even bumped my 6pt captain to a 10pt just so I could get my concealment down to 6km, which, while helpful, didn’t really matter with how the two matches I played in her went down.

Still, I like the ship and she’s perfectly viable for Clan Battles. I just need to get used to the fact that this ship is typically going to be working solo at the start and not breaking off mid to late game the way I normally do in Shimakaze or Daring.


That’s all that’s really worth noting, I think. I got a few replays I need to record before the next update, but that’s about it.

Begin (2024)

2023 ended weirdly abruptly for me, but I got the shot in the arm I needed in order to hit the ground running in 2024. This year's going to be absolutely crazy, but for me personally, I feel my worst years are finally behind me. I'm ready to stop drowning in a sea of...
