I just want to build a ski jump carrier. No, not one of the boring real ones I mean like an Olympic style massive ski jump where the planes are winched up to the top like it's a rollercoaster.

The Matrix Easter sale is on... 30% off everything using happyeaster coupon code. I may finally pick up Strategic Command WAW. Might be the first time to grab Armored Brigade on sale.

Of course this would happen a few days after I purchase it.

The level of betrayal I felt when Paradox announced their new wallpaper tore something from me that I'll never be able to recover. They tore away my ability to respect anything, and they tore away my ability to feel human.

What a childish tactic!
Don't you think you should put more thought into your battleplan?!


One. More. Week

Should we make a thread? Once RW1 started catching on with goons it really dominated the grog thread until I made a thread where we Ruled the Waves happily for a few months until the hype died down and the thread died.

If others think a thread would be good I can start cooking up an OP.

This is a megathread because none of these games are popular enough to sustain a thread to themselves. It's natural that chat gravitates to particular releases when they happen.

Yeah, this thread (or it's prior incarnation) is already like the internet's #1 spot for Rule the Wave chat; perhaps even more active than all the threads on the NWS boards combined. I probably never would have found the game had it had its own thread here, and now I'm all about it. Sorry people who don't like ships! We're going to be talking about them a lot for the next few weeks!

It is kinda crazy how excited I am for a windows 95 looking spreadsheet grog game. I donít even really get excited this much for AAA games or indie darlings anymore.

Right, with RTW2 less than a week to go, and with a new thread, I think we should remind people of some ground rules.

1) No spoilers - I'll never forget the time that poor goon had the ending of WITE spoiled. "but how was I supposed to know Germany lost!" he cried. no one wants to have the ending spoiled - we want that end game cut scene to be meaningful.
2) No anime fan art. - Battleships are sexy beasts, do not demean them by drawing them as grossly disproportioned girls.
3) No Slash fics. - That Warspite/Enterprise thing will haunt us until the rest of our days.

Thanks!

As someone who'll buy RTW2 on day one, I think it'd be smart to make a separate thread. I seem to remember the grog thread was 90% RTW posts when goons discovered it, plus having it in a separate thread might help to get fresh eyes on it. Once the hype about it dies down in a few months the conversation could just be folded back into here

I'd be very surprised if we don't end up needing a RTW2 thread but I suppose we might as well wait and see.

Never would have caught RTW if it didn't get it's own thread.



Playing as CSA and got a random event that popped me into war with the US and I can't really accomplish anything, also they are assholes and built 3 12" gun forts at the north entrance to the Chesapeake... which I ran into while limping home from a coastal raid against New York.

I wish they'd make it so the AI fought in it's own wars because GB is terrifying when it takes 0 losses all game.

Honestly though people complaining about the number of posts in a thread, even if not directly related to the thread, is pretty par for the course for a grognard.

These are the scenarios for SC:WaW - basically all World War scenarios with different start dates.

Personally, I'd like a new thread for RTW2, it's not there to permanently be the place to talk RTW, but, it'll deal with most of the buzz and make sure other stuff doesn't get drowned out.

My only experience with this type of game is trying and failing to do the submarine tutorials in CMANO but either way I'm super hyped to pick up RTW2 and make some sort of leaky bathtub with a ramp on it.

Are there any good guides to getting into Ageod games? Rise of Prussia has a tutorial but it cannot teach me to get good at it.
