Historically...Nagumo was arguably defective as CV TF commander.

Just to answer original topic question...


Yes, there were rumors of consangunity in his famiry.


Well, that's what I heard.



Really... didn't know he was secular.

Zigurat, to be honest, I think you set the tone for this thread by using "rigged." You got a few responses that seemed equally strong, but nothing I saw that was out of line with your post. You might avoid such flare ups, though, by refraining from using strong terms or by making assertions that you are an "advanced player." (I don't know you - you may well be an advanced player - but most of the time it's better to let other players sing your praises rather than singing your own.)



Such a shame Canoerebel. I used to respect your opinions. However your endorsement of poor behavior has me at a loss. You'll notice I have only 120+ posts in over 4 years,testimony to the fact that you really dont get good advice> The only way to get any respect on this board is to have played at least 5 games versus all the head-trolls on this board or to have a relative that served in the forces who single handedly forged a hand-grenade by chewing coconut husk and filled it with gunpowder from a dud BB shell on the beach.
Anyways all the psychotics will be happy to know I wont be back for a while.


As it is custom in this great forum, the tone of the responses you get usually is similar to your own.

From what I have seen you only post to either ask qustions without providing any meaningful context, to vent, to whine, or show how pissed off you are because you - always completely
innocently - were not treated the way you like it. I have never seen you help a new player or answer questions not concerning your own game; such beaviour also increases post count as
a sideffect btw.

Canorebel was much more friendly than I think you deserve - gentleman that he is, and you got, on average, much nicer and helpful responses here than I´d have the patience for. If you
plan to continue posting in this style you could surely be the cause for some entertaining threads, but OTOH, good to see you leaving again. Bye.

While Canoe has the good grace to not comment back to your uncouth trolling, and LoBaron has already shown you the door, let me be the first to encourage you to GTFO and don't come back. You remind me of too many spoiled-brat 20 something's which take up so much bandwidth on the internet, convinced of their own superiority and utterly impervious to reality.

Seriously, you started the entire thread WHINING about how "rigged" the game was due to how a Strike turned out, then when treated to your own level of maturity by some posters, responded with the "I'm an uberleet gamer and I WTFBBQPWN all before me!!!1!!1!" attitude.

Color me not impressed, I've seen scores of your type before and all I'll say is this. I wish I could buy you for what you're worth and sell you for what you think you're worth.

Now begone troll, I've wasted enough bandwidth on you as it stands.

He isn't a troll by any means, and your comment doesn't help the matter one bit to be honest...this thread is def going down in flames fast...

Rats, now I have to print out Nagumos picture and ask around. Its not like people think I am already crazy enough.

Started all in the 90s when I asked for Megavolt (Darkwing Duck) underwear.

No, no. I see it too. Very strong jaw and vertical crease on his forehead after YEARS of scolwing...but his eyes seem to say..."By Odin! What have we done? We are so ******!"

I think it's a girl thing. (The eyes, not you being crazy. )

Please tell me you were 7-YO.

No I was an adult already and thought a Megavolt pantie would be extremly cool. Infact I still think that

All women I asked say he has a very determined face, especially his mouth but puppy/sad eyes indeed. Men Said otherwise, comparable to this steel eyes thingi. (Nagumo, not Megavolt)

Very interesting.

I know you can't judge a book by its cover, but judging by Nagumo's photo, he's not the kind of guy I'd want to be around when he wasn't in a good mood.  And I don't think he was in what we'd call a good mood very often.

I believe the phrase you were looking for is "puppy dog eyes"

No, I don't think that applies to Nagumo. Piercing might be a better description.

My SO said :determined, resolute with a slightly haunted look in the eyes. She said definitely no puppy or sadness.

I think his eyes have some sadness in them like he's seen way too much horror. Overall he looks like a very tough and resolute commander. Someone who demands 110% every minute.

Thanks for the chuckles, all, especially the Grafin. We may have a serious rival to Chuck Norris on our hands.

To the OP: Perhaps phrasing the question something like, "This, this and this happened, and I was wondering if it's possible Nagumo has some sort of bad juju attached to his carrier strikes that is not reflected in his stats. Anyone have any ideas? Or is it my lousy gameplay?" [Self-deprecation usually getting more sympathetic treatment than not.]

Cheers,
CC
