What's it all aboot?

Post  MJDixon on Fri Jun 03, 2011 9:57 pm

Them there Rat people (that still owe me a copy of that Robert Taylor print book that I won in the last screenshot contest!) have been dropping random cryptic hints and the like about what's in the 10th anniversary patch.

Me being a bit slow and lazy, all I've found thus far is a reference to Boddingtons, and more specifically to think about the brewery rather than the product - and all that leads me to is that it's brewed in Moss Side, Manchester (sorry Yozz.) - Or, previously at Strangeways Brewery, also in Manchester (sorry Yozz.)

So all I can figure from that is either we're going to get shot and/or robbed (Moss Side), or it's something to do with a twin engined wannabe Lancaster Bomber (Manchester) (sorry Yozz). Razz

Aparantly Strangeways has some link in that it's the name of an Officer who planned the pre D-Day deception stuff, but that sounds much more boring!

The clued are an enigma, with three codes so far:

CPSTRBRHJIWANB
QRSCPGRKYSF
KBPGXRCYVXSC

The first two translate to:

BODDINGTONBEER
HYDRARGYRUM

with the rotor of CRS, but the third code uses a different rotor.

Will have to go capture a U-boat or something, or call Bletchley Park.

As for the first two, Boddingtons was brewed at Strangeways, which was also the surname of Colonel David Strangeways, who planned Operation: Quicksilver - part of the pre D-Day deception, Quicksilver being another name for Mercury, or Hydrargyrum.

Means bugger all to me either. Razz

~Que ?

I cant see anymore planes in game. Any time its mentioned in the forums the Rats always say theres no room. Something to do with memory space ? Anyway maybe they'll just drop crates of Boddingtons on us instead of bombs :-)

My head is going to burst, I've even downloaded a virtual enigma machine! I just can't figure out the 3 letter key for the last damn code. Thought it would be TEN but it isn't. Only thing I do know is that it has numerical correlation. Been at this all morning and with a hangover, not good.
