You know this is getting really tiring...

I'm still being asked for the ID card for alcoholic drinks. Went to the store to refill the fridge after nicking some beers the other night and only had brought a note inside my leggins pocket because I like to go for a run before I head to the store.

 

I'm closer to my 30s than I am to the 20s for Christ's sake!

My best guess for the gun caliber is 146mm (L2?). It's cited in Rob Griffin's Conqueror book as a potential gun shell caliber for the Conqueror's main armament, alongside 120mm and 180mm.

Certain variants of the Baneblade are for anti-Titan usage

 

In my day there was just THE Baneblade. GW hadn't come out with more variants to sell more models yet. This was in the Space Marine 2nd edition days (early nineties). Oh man did we have some GIGANTIC games on Sunday nights at the game store where I worked at the time. Those games were just employees and our friends. I want to say the most epic single combat round involved something close to 20+ Warlords/Gargants/Phantoms exploding. That wasn't all the titans that blew up either, just the big ones. Anyway, THE Baneblade hunted Titans and largely succeeded because they came in squads of three as I recall.

Since I dont want to rewrite the rant... but jesus WG seems to understand the Centurions almost perfectly... and then they provide the exact fix that goes against how they describe the role...

 

Oh... and lol the Charioteer gets -10 depression too... as if that tank werent already amazing... I can not... in any way see a reason against a Mk. 5/2 at tier 8 now...

Just thought of this today, if they are doing this to the Charioteer and the Caern getting a bigger gun........what about the AT-15 and it's little pop gun?

The 146 would make sense for that line, maybe with some weird alpha like 650 and crazy dpm.

Oh, SpaceX just released a blooper reel video today. The use of the The Liberty Bell March (aka The Monty Python's Flying Circus Theme) was particularly genius.

 

Best quote in the video: "Look, that's not an "explosion" it's just a rapid unscheduled disassembly." :teethhappy:

Guess KSP was right, rockets do explode into confetti when they fall over.

Watch that video and then consider that there are those who still believe that atmospheric use of nuclear rockets is a good idea...

 ​It was first presented in 1531 so yes. 61 years before Doctor Faustus. 

Looked it up

 

Cool, yeah... I think that Dr Faustus was based on an older story, so ... it's all drawing on the same medieval traditions, I think.

Alright, could someone explain the personal mission changes in a way that isn't convoluted and that makes sense? Because it seems like a lot of gibberish to me at the moment.

Liquor store employees here are told to card anyone who looks under something like 30 and they have posters to that effect.  Fwiw?

I don't understand the new Personal Mission stuff either, at least not yet. It might take actually using it to fully understand.  

If a mission with Honours lets you skip another mission that will make advancing through things MUCH quicker.  I'm mostly stuck on some late missions for the T-55A.

To be perfectly honest here (don't hit me) ... from your avatar picture and those you have recently posted in this thread ... you look younger than your years.  I would go so far as to say that if you wanted to ... you could present the look of a high schooler ... easily.  Think of the bright side of this equation ... you have the propensity for youthful looks ... this asset becomes progressively more desirable, the older you get!

I currently need TD 15.3, HT 15.3, LT 7.3, and LT 15.3, so I'm definitely interested in this change if it means I can get the T 55A finally.

How it sounds to me(since WG doesn't want to make personal missions as easy as it first sounds).  Completing missions with honors in a given set of personal missions(LT,MT,HT,TD,SPG) gives you 1 "order" that allows you to skip 1 mission in that grouping.  For example you complete LT1-6 with honors, use the "order" to skip LT7. Then you complete LT8-15 without needing to complete LT7.

 

Alternatively you can complete LT, MT, HT, and TD 1-15 for say the T-55a however you didn't get honors on the 15th mission(s).  You could use 4 orders gained from those sets to "complete" SPG-15 and thus gain the T-55a.

 

Basically it allows you to either skip 1 mission in each grouping(and still requiring you to complete 4 #15 missions with honors). Or you can use 4 orders to complete one #15 mission without needing to complete 4 #15 missions with honors.

That contradicts the statement about about completing a previously skipped mission to earn another order. Like I said, it's completely convoluted and makes no sense currently.
