a few weeks ago I had actually emailed and called the publisher for an update on Firepower. No reply to either method.

Infantry cord with armor brass... Bronze Star after National Defense... I need to have a chat with costuming.

Now I want to see The Chieftain do all his future episodes in the uniform of a WW2 tanker :D

I bet it's the long-awaited Chieftain puppet, so he can finally be comfortable inside a Hetzer! :B:D

I have a feeling that said puppet would be subject to many Significant Emotional Events :P

Well I'm not trying to annoy or offend him ( I hope I didn't, I'm very seriously sorry if I did Cheiftain ). 

I will take your suggestion FrozenKemp and contact them.

 

Dude, he's seen active combat before. I suspect it takes a bit more than that to 'rattle' him.

Idea, but sadly, I am not in charge of puppet creations.

 

I doubt Lovan would be able to find anyone to do my accent anyway.

Interesting, the tracking code for my shipment was opened on Tuesday even though it won't ship until tomorrow

 

Also interesting is that despite waiting until the last possible day to place my order I was only around the 1200th purchase

Chieftain,

 

I'm sure the topic has been discussed before, but my search skills are lacking today...  What are the prospects of Inside the Chieftain's Hatch videos on the vehicles in the collection at Ft Benning?  I'm thinking of the heavies like the T29/30/34 and T95, as well as other vehicles in the army museum system like the T92 light tank.  On another note, how about a hatch video on a M22 Locust?  (Any bets on whether you'll fit in it better than a Jagdpanzer 38t?) :)

The email gives you a FedEx tracking code and tells you the order your book is in the series

So what are the odds that a few nice improvements might come our way care of the World of Warships style production team?

 

1 - Allowing 1 artillery per platoon (similar to the one carrier)  It works there and isn't broken.

2 - Having a short period where if you have just repaired a module it cannot be instantly re-destroyed.  (such as when on fire and using an extinguisher in WOWS you cannot be lit on fire again for ~1-3 seconds)

3 - Changing matchmaker to allow tank platooning based on the HIGHEST tier a tank can see, so that preferred tanks are not harmed by being unable to platoon with non-preferred tanks.  (such as allowing an IS-6 to platoon with a Tiger P instead of an IS-3)

I'd say the first is most likely, and I'm hopeful they do make that change.  The second I think is extremely unlikely because they could have made this change at any time (assuming WoWS has been like that since the beginning?) and they haven't.  The third... I have no clue.  Not going to hold my breath on it, though i agree it would be an improvement.

 

Just my $0.02.
