The next batch of Friend Fleet will be implemented next weekend.-Yamakaze will receive a Kai-II at the end of the event.-The Summer 2021 Event is underway. It is a small-scale Mediterranean vacation. The Extra Operation, "Operation Pedestal", has been implemented. There are 4 tags and 2 quests associated with E-3. The event is scheduled to last for 3 weeks after the EO implementation from 8/31.-New ships in the Main Operation are the Japanese submarine tender Chougei (E-1 drop) and the Italian battleship Conte di Cavour (E-2 reward). The armored carrier Victorious is the E-3 reward and Kaiboukan No.30 is a drop.-New equipment implemented is the 65mm/64 Single Rapid Fire Gun Mount Kai, the 305mm/46 Twin and Triple Gun Mounts, the 320mm/44 Twin and Triple Gun Mounts, and the SM.79, SM.79 bis, and SM.79 bis (Skilled) land-based bombers, and the Corsair Mk.II (Ace).-Souya is available as a drop in E-1 for those who failed to get her.-Kongou-Hiei Kai-IIC special attack can now trigger with Echelon and 2nd Cruising Formation.-The July ranking rewards have been distributed. The new equipment is the Corsair Mk.II, Daihatsu (Panzer II/North Africa Spec), and the Prototype Jinpuu.-UI Changes! The composition UI now allows to show tagged/untagged only or all ships. Tagged are orange, Untagged are Green, and All are gray.-As of the Feb 28, 2020 maintenance, due to the ongoing DDoS attacks, measures have been taken that requires players from certain countries to use a Japanese IP address to connect to the Login servers. After getting to the start screen it's possible to disconnect from the VPN and continue playing without it. If you still encounter connection issues try clearing your cache and changing your time zone to JST. These countermeasures are temporary as of right now. EN EO now bypasses the block. Another possible workaround is using https://github.com/Tibowl/KCCacheProxy-The following ships will receive another remodel at some point in the future:-->Kai-II: Mikuma, multiple Type A DDs-->Kai-II side remodel: The rest of the Kongou-class; Shigure (could be Kai-III)
God, help me to finish this horrible event.
>>36563970Slow and steady broSuperfriends are coming this weekend
m-my bauxite... it's gone... like tears in the rain...
>>36564481Say no to screwjews.
>>36564714aoyama what the fuck
>>36564714Did he clear with AS+?
I can taste the victory soonBros, E3-4 is a victory lap right?
Should I use Graf over Aquila for E3P2?
>>36564870Bro...you are just messing with me right?With superfriends this weekend, it should be a breeze
>>36564863>Bros, E3-4 is a victory lap right?oh you
fuck I can't even start e3 because I don't have enough slots again
Hiryuu is cute
>>36565353Cries out Tamon-maru's name during sex.
>>36564866In my experience Graf has been a lot more reliable than Aquila, but it's up to you.Though Aquila gets that historical bonus.
>>36565474Graf has better bonus, but her slots aren't better than Aquila.
>>36565474>>36565505Both are meme5slotter like Akagi or Kaga is the way to go
Fucking finally.Time to get Victorious.Post your E3-4 Fleet so I can get some rough idea on what to expect
Just finished 3-1 with Ark dealing the death blow. What should I expect from 3-2 onwards?
>>36566130E3-2 >worst node of the map at M node with double Ne>guarantee instant lose if you get the line ahead formation>otherwise it is the same as 3-1, need big CVCI nuke to clear the mapE3-3 >very long transport phase>more forgiving than M node double Ne>yasen node will have 2-3 Ne but since they are in dong formation, both side will miss a lot>double Re is in ring formation so they have bad accuracy>you will have much better passing rate than E3-2 but the boss node is tough as fuck>you won't even get A rank for like 1/3 of the time and you need to clear 960TP, expect to spend half a day here
>>36566156>guarantee instant lose if you get the line ahead formationLD is line ahead though?
>>36566176Well use FCF, damecon and just prayGood luck
How is E3 compared to E2?
https://youtu.be/mlyl8rb0xLkKashima is a Vtuber now!
>>36566749Odd, she seemed more like the onlyfans type
>>36566829Wrong, she is a good girl.
I hate shiplocks holy shit.
So I shouldn't lock NagaMutsu to Force H right? Even if I plan on E3M?
>>36567368Thanks.Is E2P2 where I'm supposed to do the sub cheese?So far so good but I heard this is the roadblock for E2.
Is KCNav down for anyone else?
>>36567651Nevermind, it was just taking forever to respond.
Wtf, I just checked and Swordfish isn't in the same group as the skilled versions.Why would they do that.
>need to change Kaga from normal -> E -> normal>need to farm modernization material before attempting E3-4I don't get why they dont make them interchangeable without modernization
>>36567875Yeah, that thing's bullshit.Or at least make it natively max mod at lvl 99.
>>36567907They also take tons of development materialHow do I farm those?
Oh. I cleared E2P2.So which is the difficult part of E2 again? P3?
Anything I can minmax here? E2 LD. Had Libeccio do TCI the past few runs but that didn't work out that well because of her shit tier luck.
Should I go for the Fast+ meme for E2P3?Afaict most of the ships needed I have hole punched.
>>36568026You could give Gotland a SCAMP instead of a 3rd gun.
>>36568049Oh nvm. Ignore that.I only have 6 not 12 turbines so I can't do it anyway.Guess I should look into crafting more.
"Use a TCF to deal over 10000 damage" is a particularly cruel debuff requirement, frankly.
Fubuki is cute.
Wow, wiki's LBAS page just fucking vanished.
>>36568290Dont use transport fleet
>>36568520I tried using the surface fleet and it wasn't better, plus ammo penalty.It doesn't help that Suzuya and Kumano aren't cooperating.
>>36568290What debuff are you talking about?I am up to E3-4 and I don't see any TCF fleet debuff shit
>>36568545He means E2-3.
any word on when the event ends? won't have much time either from monday-thursday or thursday-sunday next week (i can decide when), not sure which timeframe is better to be busy.
>>36568588Event ends on day 21.
>>36568588Most likely superfriends implementation + 1week
I don't know how to beat 5 meatshields where the lowest HP one rivals the sum of my entire fleet.
>>36569056You know AL is a lot more generous, with that right?
Whew, finally reached E2P3.Now I'm starting to worry. After trudging through P1.
What am I doing wrong here, exactly?I attempted everything and nothing worked, never even sank one of the Super NEET Himes.
Yeah, first run not looking so good.Are you expected to get S-ranks on chipping?E2P3H
>>36566749What game does she play?
>>36569288I only see one DD w/ tank-daihatsu combo, & she should be in main fleet not escort. There should be at least three combo-wombos in main fleet, such that only one neet survives for yasen.
>>36569614I only have three tanks, If I put them in main fleet nukes, who's going to kill the boss at night?Would CAVs be enough?
>>36569614Surviving neet is virtually solo'd by melon DA w/ tank + daihatsu equipped.>>36569658The neets are soft-skinned, so CAVs w/t3 & Wugs should do it. DA w/Sherman should also be powerful.
>>36569724How did I not think of this?Work must have fried my brain.Thanks, I was just about to lock Yura there out of despair.
>>36568457It would be a shame if someone kept making mistakes
I wanna start this week but too lazy to plan locks
Please Ark... just once I'd like you to target the boss before everyone decides you must die.
>>36571112Blame the fact that Ark's designated meat shield cruiser isn't around.
>>36569724>>36569756I sank one NEET once, clearly making progress.
>>36566130>600 damageMy carriers are only doing 100 damage on medium, are swordfish that strong this event?
I just realized I can turn on of my MAX T89s into a fourth tank.Fuck, I'm dumb.
This event is just horrible.
I sank both NEET princesses but a random escort DD lived with 2HP.Kill me.
>>36571058Poppin this boy's cherry!
How good is this thing against Angry Supply Hime?
>>36571400I actually have been meaning to ask, as a newface what is the tank to T89's I should be keeping? 1:1?
>>36572975Essentially, yes.You can replace T89 with other landing craft if you get them later.
>>36572986Thank you. I never really saw how much of what I should get/keep on hand.
If I fail this one too, I swear...
>>36573367A FUCKING DAYTIME KILL I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS
Where's the comfy part of E3?
Does sending jets to E2P3 makes sense?
What happens if the second fleet's flagship gets taiha then I proceed to E2-X (night battle with second fleet only), is she still unsinkable?
>>36574317Cool.If you lied, my Okinami will die.
>>36574336trust me, anon.
>>36574346Nobody even aimed at her, she lives.Now onwards to doing absolutely nothing to the boss,
>>36572934I don't know the numbers, but I got some solid damage with it. Not as much as a proper nuke, but worth using if you don't have 4 ka-mis.
Do you like your childhood friend?
>>36574700She chokes so hard in E2-3.
>>36574700I only like Light Cruisers who can equip Seaplane Fighters.
>>36569393I think she'd make a good Minecraft speedrunner.
>>36574700Reminder that fate itself has made it so that you will always marry Gotland.
Still the best Euro Carrier.
>>36573827I'm trying it now, but still in chipping so no test results on the final form yet.
I knew I had to keep those shitty Fulmar for some reason.
If I can get to E3-2 boss.Its an automatic kill right?
>>36574976Please don't use my concubine for your shitposting.
>>36576146Better than any other boss on the map but I failed to kill a couple times. Got a lucky first kill on LD though, the stars aligned.
>>36574976That’s Ark Royal.
>>36574700No. I am marrying Honolulu. Childhood friends never win.
>>36576146E3-2 is probably the hardest part of the whole map due to node MGood luck bro
how many days will it take me to clear e3 on memedium?
This is your maid today.
>>36577544For hard mochi
>>36574854How can I marry her when i don't even have her?
Is it just me or does E3P2 have unnaturally high AA?
>>36578073>subtle camel toeMUH
>>36578073it's just you, and no matter how many you try for a successful AS, that node will kill your chevrons.
>>36578073Just use 2 fighters with bonus and tb+db with resist
Remember when we used to get the big DLC with the 11th tank regiment?What's that good for?
>>36578151IIRC nothing because they forgot it exists and to code it with unique bonuses.
Make sure you guys got Warspite and NelsonThey do gorillion damage at E3-4
>>36578493I have them, the problem is getting to that point on the map with ow the edge ryuko and his armor wall stopping me.
>>36578596That's Nelsol to you
You now remember Victorious exists
>>36567142>>36567368You are like a baby.
>>36578151It looks good but his bonuses are very low.Cost me lots of runs.
Posting a fairy to counter my E3-2-induced depression.
What the hell, even in ring formation these Ne are fucking bullshit.
>>36576327no he clearly posted Graf Zeppelin
>>36578952I want to use my wife and her sister to kill the final boss.Why would I lock them to Force H like a retard?
Yubari's glorious high score.
>>36572986>other landing craftDo you mean daihatsus or memeshit like 11th, m4 etc? Cause all these don't replace 89.
>>36579337The Sherman is pretty good for a meme, and the new Armed Daihatsu seems very strong too.(The 11th is bugged or just shit.)
>>36579205I was honestly amazed when a perfect S happened.But now I'm at LD, and I need to sparkle route support, rank up oh so many aircraft, and also considering waiting for the last batch of FF's to maximize my chances.
>>36579337>>36579357I'm glad for the Sherman. It won 2-2 for me with a 700 dmg DA.
>>36579337I tried 11th+M4A1+20cm concentrated on Murasame and she hit the supply for only 393 in daytime. That was disappointing. As for the new armored boat, >>36579327 was the armored boat, 89 +10, ka-mi +10, minisub D, and SG radar.The key item is the ka-mi tank, since pairing it with a regular daihatsu does work well. When I made the fourth tank it seemed like a luxurious army, but now that feels like a minimum.
>>36579381I am considering jervis+5 fodders strat for LD
>>36579461Yeah, I went from "sure three tanks is overkill" to "gotta make a fourth one at the very minimum".
>>36574700Sendai is the only light cruiser for me.
Damn, these new ship tags in the ship list is really helpful when trying to reorg the fleet for debuffs and shit.Much easier to find than more or less remembering where each ship class is located.
How bad is it to S Rank Z2 for the debuff?Should I go out all with support?
Is anyone else experiencing problems with JP EO causing screen stuttering?
They can't possibly all choke, right?
Damn, E2H LD is kicking my ass. If it isn't NB Re its something else.At least I've cleared the debuff so its just ramming my head until it works.Anyone got a S-rank LD clear? Or is it TCI roulette?
Any maps recommendation to level LBAS plane?
>>36579477I have only 3 tanks and 2 T89, plus a 11th Regiment.Should I acquire the Panzer II daihatsu, I'll only need a T2 Ka-Mi, or the T89 is simply the best you can have for the nuke combo?
>>36580328I don't think anyone has good data on the Panzer yet, but the 11th is weak-ish so use it only if you have nothing better.
>>36580254Just dong the Re boss is easy if you use fast+ and have proper planes to fill 4 CV
>>36580381So what you're saying is go craft 6 more turbines.Any recommended formula?
What should I prepare for in E3H?
>>36580449DD flag?All these databases/wikis seems to lack info for some reason.
>>36580832I used Zuikaku.
>>36580683E3-1Akagi/Kaga E for yasenE3-2Ark Royal big nukeDouble Ne cockblockedE3-3Long TP PhaseE3-4Nelson Touch + Warspite Akitsushima repair shortcut
>>36580841I use Zuikaku daily desu.
How painful is E3p2 LD? I managed to chip without any big problem but also not smooth all S rank.Do you still keep FCF and add damecon damegod and how do you distribute LBAS on LD still 1 sub and 2 boss or 3 boss?
>>36581097Just be yourself but I would recommend you to abuse the refresh trick to save planes rank
Should I be pushing for that Do-17 german plane with missiles for E2?I'm just using a Sm.2 atm.
>>36581304It's well worth making. The only flaw is its short range.
>>36581097I'm in the same boat as you, just waiting for tomorrow's friend fleets to become available. Post your fleet, btw.
Aaahhh, the Shigure wife experience.
Which CVL did you pick for E3P1, just Zuihou?
Can someone post their E3-2 LD fleet? I'd like to see if I'm doing it right.
>>36581352Just standard 4CV fleet with FCF and sub tank
Fuck this shit.I'm crafting those 6 turbines and then turning that max Do-17 into the missile version.100/10/100/10 with CV flag or anything better?Just to confirm its fuel/ammo/steel/baux right?
Fuck this event, I'm giving up and getting drunk
>>36581924Yeah, do it.Light suijou is a trap, like the "new nukes".
>>36581722Okay, thank you. I assume everyone in escort except Kiso had damegami. Just a few more questions: How did you arrange LBAS, 1 toukai everything else to boss? How did your visits to M node turn out, and how many tries before she got nuked?
>>36581924Using that or 100/10/200/10, I bumrushed those 6 turbines w/Ark & Akagi FS. Burned 10k fuel & got a shitload of boilers & 10 cm guns before the turbines flooded in.
>>36581964New nukes? I've just started the event recently and wasn't watching the threads.What's that about?>>36581975Oh, I didn't know that site gives that too, then again I don't look much.Thanks.Also weird they split into gunnery and torp for secretary ships.
>>36582035Wait, CV or BB flag? The akashi site >>36581975 shows BB flags.Otoh 2 anons including you on this thread has used CV flags.
>>36582056>New nukes? I've just started the event recently and wasn't watching the threads.>What's that about?A bad idea to attempt at sinking NEETS at night.
>>36582092E3? E2 had them too but I just blew them for the debuff with STF without too much issue.
>>36581990Don't remember about LBAS but it should be 1 to sub, 2 to boss
>>36582105Do you need Fast+ for E3 as well?Fuck.
>>36582086https://db.kcwiki.org/development/item/33.htmlIt is an item anyone can build
Well, I picked up some with Ark so I guess that question is moot.Thank Tanaka for crafting 3 at a time, I can't imagine doing it one at a time like back in the days.
>>36582131Opps attached the wrong fleet. It is this one. The key ship for E-3 is just Nelson+Warspite and you just need Ark Royal nuke for E3-2. Thats it
>>36582135How do you tell? I saw that page too but I don't know if its my adblockers or what but I don't see flag requirements anywhere.
>>36582167Is your browser filled with adware or something?
>>36582160Thank you very much; glad I was on the right track. So it's basically getting lucky & hoping that M node doesn't screw over the CVs? How many tries did it take you?
>>36582183Okay, I missed that + on the left.Though I see all those are CV/BBs for some reason. Oh well.Thanks.And I just do that block 3rd party by default unless something obviously breaks.
Can I use Nelson Touch with a Striking Force?
>>365822031try after I leveled all my planes rank and abuse the refresh trickThe problem is getting past M node. You just need to reach the boss
Deader than DEAD
Oh hey, picked up my 12th turbine.So that's that. Now to clean up my AA guns and wait for the day to change for the plane upgrade.
>>36582233Again, thanks for the confidence-boosting advice. Given the retreat rate at M, sparkling escort fleet's just a waste of time, right? Also, did you use route support?
>>36582374I think they are generally useless but if you got the resources you can always run asw supportI used boss support though
Trying to get both max plane bonus and night cutin on my carriers is like a fucking puzzle.
Nvm, now I remember why I never got my missile plane. I was lacking 2 T96 LBAS, now I need to craft some.Damn, thought I could save some baux.
>>36582160Why RE2001? Isnt german planes like FW+C4 is better?
>>36582727When I cleared the map, fulmar and Re2001 has the next highest bonusMaybe they updated the bonus chart, I haven't been keeping up
>>36582797Oh yeah. FW 1.1 bonus Fulmar and RE 1.12 bonus
Who thought this was a good idea?
>>36582936I don't get it
>TBM-3D has bonus>It's upgrade doesn'tI mean it doesn't matter because it's not in group B but it still sucks.Also I only have 2 Swordfish Mk.2.
>>36582971It's the E-3 plane bonus table,
I want Mutsu to steal my cum.
>>36583446And load it into a strapon she uses to impregnate Nagato?
>>36583645Let her do it with her mouth.
>Switched to Fast+ meme>Cleared on like 5th run/3rd boss reachGood meme. Now on to E3M because fuck that noise.Hopefully the worst is behind me, but we'll see.
>>36582971That's the point lmao
>>36584371Battleships are simply the best
>>36584371Shipgirls have to stay fit.
Anyone found the new DE yet, by the way?
>>36584371Created for the birth of strong children.
>>36584678Pretty sure she's infertile after getting hit by all that radiation
1 hour maintenance for strong FF implementation. I don't remember any FF implemented with maintenance are they going to add something else beside FF?
You now remember Take exists
>>36584936How could I forget the ultimate meme fit bonuses?
>>36584936She was in my bad FF and also my support fleet flagship.Go Take!
Man I am getting like 150-200hp chips at E3-2 after a 33% chance of getting past M.
>>36584936desu, she help me to LD in E2-3.
>>36584936How can I forget when she keeps appearing in FF with that disgusting summer CG?
>>36585775I'm sorry you're homosexual.
>>36585775>disgusting summer CGwhat the hell
It's been eight years. When will they grow older?
>>36585983Have you looked at DesDiv7?
How do I get past node M?
>>36584852They are all infertile, aren't they?
>>36586853pray, just pray.
>Aquila drops in this event in a shitty node with a low drop rateTanaka is a absolute fucker.
>>36585795And I'm sorry you're blind.>>36585860Head too big, body too small.It's weird as hell to look at.
Done with E3P1, what's next?
>>36587583E3P2, you're gonna enjoy the stay with the SS loli and the double Re kicking your ass in every sortie.
>>36587595I don't fear no subloli, but >double ReI could try Nagato Touch, but there's still the optorp.Maybe lots and lots of Euro bombers?
>>36587646Sorry, I mean double Ne.
>>36587660>Preboss NeWell, that's annoying but at least no optorp.
>>36587683Is anyone going to tell him?
>>36582936Tanaka finds new ways of introducing more bloat to each successive event. Previous bad ideas include making every map be the equivalent of 3 maps and having the shiplocks outnumbering the maps.
>>36580289I used E1H with Maestrale, Perth, and Pola with anti-PT equipment. It got the 50 transports quest done. Any gray tag ships that route there are fine and you can send them in fatigue or chuuha.
>>36588340He had already done it, this time he went too far with this bullshit.
I have so little motivation to start E3 and there's already only a week left. Maybe I'll just sit this one out, that M node looks really unfun and time consuming.
Aquila hit the jackpot. CV Hime missed her right before that. Re.2005's evasion bonus isn't just for show.
s rank this? twice? how?
>>36588874With the power of love. No, seriously, good luck.
>>36588874What's this? Seems fairly easy to S rank to me
>>36588874wew, you're so fucked up.
>>36588874Are you retarded?
>>36589388That dress would look better on the floor, as I mating press Houshou.
>>36589388>budweiserFUCK RUINEDA FUCKING SHIT
Those requirements to unlock Z2 in E3-3 are total bullshit.
>>36584852Nah, that only will make sure her kids have an additional pair of arms or a third eye.
shit girl become stats for cute girl
>>36590368Corporate needs you to find the difference between these two girls.
Where is my victory lap?
>>36590686There's nothing like that here, ask in the next event.
>>36590691>Victorious>No Victory lapOne job, Tanaka.
For these scrap quests that needs stuff in inventory.Do you only need them when you scrap the final piece?Also what about turning off the quest halfway for that matter?
https://twitter.com/donguri_nam1234/status/1438062588818976769Sucking on Hamakaze’s tits until milk comes out!
>>36590790A couple times when I scrapped before double checking, it got stuck at 80% and I had to craft stuff before I can go claim.
>>36590711But only if you refuse to take responsibility
>>36590865So basically they check for number of stuff and number of scraps separately then.Thanks.
What are the unlock requirements for the second E1 quest? I've completed the first, but the second one isn't showing up.
>>36591026Pre event quests.
What's the max number of DLC bonus per exped again?
>>36591058D42 and B171
E3-4 LD route is super cancerous The first sub node permanently at 5subs formation, wtf
Why i have a feeling they are going to add or adjust something else beside strong FF
Maints now right?
>>36591540yes, ends at 19:00they added 1 hour more
I thought it was live maint.
>【機動部隊(航空)友軍】The heck is that? Additional help asides from the FF?>>36591551I hope there's some double Ne nerfing involved.
Wew, managed a daytime kill on E3-1 just before maintenance killed the server.
>>36591586Day support or day FF
>>36591586it means friends will help on route too, I think
>>36591607That sounds too good to be true.Are we getting 2 FF per boss run?
>>36591616It seems only for route maybe M lets wait
>ジブラルタル後方の大西洋戦域、その敵旗艦艦隊の前面に立ち塞がる敵空母打撃群一群に対して、友軍要請または強友軍要請をより、友軍「機動部隊」による新実装の【機動部隊(航空)友軍】航空開幕(道中昼間)攻撃を支援要請することも可能です！>past GibraltarOh wow, so it's specifically designed to help with node M?!?
>>36591635Dear Lord, I hope so.
>>36591635M must've been really bullshit.
So we're getting Route Friends, pretty cool.
>>36591727I can only fear for the future of event maps.
>>36591782The future will be sortieing a single DD and letting Friends do all the work.Also 1 hours increase means it'll be up at 1900 hours?
It apparently costs flamethrowers too, but what else are you gonna use those 3k flamethrowers for?>>36591819Yeah, same tweet they announced the additional reinforcements. Apparently up to 4 CV's worth of airstrike will arrive?
>>36591837Ugh, now I have 1 hour of nothing to do before everything starts.And 4 CVs eh. I read that as 4 fleets of CVs at first. Well, it'll help deplete airpower if nothing else.
>>36591819>>36591837Oh wait, servers are up & maint's done already.
>>36591635Where is my support for R-U-X, I am still stuck at LD after my girls massive chokejob
>>36591857Is the new FF in?
>>36591837fuck you leather man i've got like 60 flamethrowers and i'm not even at e3 nor have i remodelled kuma, noshiro, gamby and ryuuhou
>>36591940does anyone in the devteam even play this kusoge
>>36591940I got a shittier fleet and all they did was deal 7 damage to a single destroyer.
>>36591940I think this kind of support reduces AS more than dealing damage.
>>36591940The M stands for... useless?
>>36591940Huh, so enemy air also gets hit by the DDs AA?That's pretty good.
>>36592042It's not bad at all, but it does nothing against Ne.
Event ends 11 am, 9/28.
isnt this just useless? no option to turn off route friend and you pay 6 flamers for almost 0 damage
>>36592042Apparently Route Friends can also do AACI?
Place your bet
>>36592277I finally got out of the node R-U-X hellNagamin with clutch hit after kitakami choked
Should I bring Graf to E3P2?
Seems like there's no additional flamethrower cost incurred by the preboss airstrike
USA! USA! USA!
>>36592525What's your fleet & LBAS?
>>36592525Grats on escaping M hell
The M node choices are pretty bullshit, considering what everyone's been bringing.
>>36592625Thanks. I got a green T and Ark nuked the boss down to 103hp.>>36592612I copied Zekamashi pretty much 100%, except I used Graf instead of Taihou. LBAS was also, the same, except for an extra fighter instead of a Ginga in the first group. Doesn't matter though, since they did shit damage during the battle. I got really lucky with CV nukes.
>>36592665Only Suzu and Oki are in my Force H so that's great for me.
Anyone tried Formation 1 at node M?
Holy fuck. This franchise is so dead.
>>36593938the fuck are you doing there?
Tfw free from E3p2 how hard are the rest? I heard the TP is annoying but final boss is easy
>>36593956Post cleared victory lap
>>36593992Final boss is easy but E3-4 LD route is horrible though. It is just as bad as node M
>>36593996I thought you were supposed to do that quest before P3?
>>36594113This quest doesn't get unlock until you cleared E3-2 and the 10th submarine fleet quest
>>36594218I mean "during" P3, I'm dumb.
Wtf, I'm already on medium and E3P1 is kicking my ass.LD is tougher than I would have expected.
>>36594343yeah P1 is the hardest part of the map for some reasonJust throw in the best girls you can and hope you get through
Well, complaining helped and I got a daytime kill.
>>36594403>yeah P1 is the hardest part of the map for some reasonAs if.
>>36594403What about node M?
Once you clear the map can you sortie without any tag restriction like usual? Or i need to manage my installation buster lock for the quest?
Maybe I should have done the FR1 Fireball quest earlier.
>>36594775Only force H is locked outYou can sortie Force X and Force Z to clear the panzer quest
>conte di cavour cannot equip strike fleet command facilitywhat the fuck
>>36595032Get her to nuovo and try again.
Why did this node become a bitch all of a sudden?
>>36594931And from what i saw at zekamashi you don't need to deal with S ranking DJ hime again except during quest right?
>>36595148Check the formation
>>36595155They are easy post cleared, don't worry about itI think the hardest debuff to do is at Z2 due to how bad R-U-X composition is for LD
>>36595168I met them in line ahead before and they always let me pass.Now it's rape.
>>36595072I was gonna use her to search for Chougei to level her to nuovoGotta scrap the plan since she can't use the command facility
>>36595188And Z2 is locked to 3 hime formation well maybe that is the next hurdle after E3p2 LD
fuck e2 Z piece of shit cunt node also fuck these FF useless scrap material
>>36595228Nah I think it is random
Shits fucked. 1/10 pass rate through M now that it's last dance. This event is god-awful.
>>36595310Reset your RNG seed.
>>36595310Setup and level your planes so you clear it once you get to the boss
>>36595329>level your planesIs that part really mandatory?
>>36595440It is mandatory like usual level all planes including lbas and abuse the f5 if you fail
>>36595503I never actually reranked my LBAS, way too much effort.
>>36595440YesUsually I don't but I am not fucking going through M roulettePlane proficiency correlate highly with CVCI crit
>>36595329I got a red T for the only time I made it to the boss so..
>>36595540Did it work well for you?
>>36595526>too much effort.You only need to rerank once and they never lose rank if you close the game before battle result
>>365955531shotted it after I got through M>get to LD>level planes>F5 if failedSimple as
>>36595569Sounds good to me, time for some reranking in another ~200HP or so.
Goddamned fucking clutch damegami resurrected Jervis TCI save with exactly the right amount of damage, WTF I'M FREE OF NODE M FOREVER.
>>36595606Based lucky jervis>>36595541Just bring saiun AS req is not that high you have CAV and sub as spf mule
>>36595741Depraved silver-haired wolf.
>>36595675>AS req is not that highIt's 618 on LD.
>E2N P2 cleared in almost straight runs.Part 1 is a bad meme.
Could they not find anything to make the P3-4 route in E3 more cancerousBecause I don't think it's bad enough
>>36596065Fine, next even will have enemy LBAS strikes + Combined Fleet.And a sub screen with optorps.All on the same node of course.
So is this the worst event so far? I mean it's not the hardest (Summer 2015 still gives me nightmares), not the most retarded one, but amount of bullshit for a "small" event is ridiculous. I cleared every event since I joined, at least on Easy if I didn't have time or felt burned out, but this time I really have no motivation to clear it.
>>36596118It would be better if the prize wasn't some shitty bong carrier
>>36596118The devs have completely lost perspective into what makes an event worth its time. The shopping list of menial and tedious shit you have to do just keeps getting pointlessly longer,
>>36596204Should had gone with either one of the two of them that had decently sized airgroups by late war.
>>36596118The rewards are pretty shitty so the risk/reward just makes no sense. And I don't get the quests, what the fuck is the point of even more tedium instead of just adding them as rewards?
>>36596118It's just tedious, Summer 2015 was at least merciless rather than just boring.
>>36596118I thought the 2020 large event was the worst, but Tanaka and the devs really get over it with their bullshit, if you don't have decent anti-installation gear to kill the 5000 neet hime and some bong stuff, you're doomed, that and the TP in all the maps was tedious. Add to that, the quests, limited according to the level of difficulty, that's ridiculous.
So what's the Designated LBAS Ranking Spot this time?
>>36596118All events are the same-ish "size" now, since number of maps hardly matters. To be fair the event has been okay until E3 node M, that's on the same level as Go-Home-Hime from ages ago.
>>36595868I managed to get it with saiun, fulmar recon and subpar euro planes. Just rerank your planes to max use a 5 slotters like akagi or kaga and mule your CAV and SSV
6 hours and 20k fuel for 1 meager peek at E3-2LD. That's it for me tonight. It's just not possible to survive 2 opening torps, 2 closing torps and 4 shellings.
>>36596584Drop to medium and clear it in one shot.
>>36596118Only if there was another ship game where the devs actually cared about the event being playable
>>36596676To be fair, games nowadays aren't "playable", mostly of them are just torture.
>>36596695From the looks of it this event isn't even torture, it's brutality
>>36596661What's the point in that?>>36596526E3-A
When are actual super friends coming?
>>36597308Why she so smug.
>>36596118Honestly yeah it's definitely up there. Giving the abyssals opening torps was bullshit when they were first added but now giving them to Ne-Kai and on route nodes is just torture. That coupled with the dumb requirements, the lousy rewards, confusing plane bonuses, only Euros getting bonus with 7 locks, easily overlooked quests in the middle of maps, inflated hime HP, etc. Sending both supports and then getting told "go home" is an awful feeling especially when it happens repeatedly like in this event.The thing about opening torps is that there is no counter to it aside from just killing them outright with the opening phases before they fire. With the M node this becomes next to impossible. The FF on node M isn't even a bandaid fix and arguably makes things worse if it eats more of your flamethrowers. They need to take a step back and think about how to make events enjoyable rather than as ball crushingly tedious and difficult as humanly possible.
>>36597515I think there's a partial counter to optorps, though.
Do I have to F5 every time node M rapes me or just if I reach the boss and fail to sink her?
Sometimes I wonder how my hotel feels when she thinks she gets to do some big sortie and its just 1-1 and support expedtions again
>>36598567Sometimes I wonder what Hotel's doing with all that ammo when I send her on boss support then I get turned back on the route.
>>36598567Who uses Hotels for support?
Is there any list of new Friend Fleets?
>>36597942There is a counter, its called getting good.
>>36598696No it's called getting lucky. This isn't the kind of game where skill is a factor, it's all planning and preparation. Every input from you aside from formation is done before you hit the sortie button.
what's the point?>miss>miss>miss
>>36599070I've asked myself the same question since I started the event.
>>36598696No, I meant aggro tanking.
>>36598567No clue since she's beating the shit out of the boss rn
What shipgirls do we know have abyssal counterparts?
>>36599987It's all allied ships
>>36599987Shoukaku, Akagi, Hornet, Gamby, Richelieu, Colorado, a few others>>36600007That was debunked a long time ago, but many of the allies do have coresponding bosses.
>>36600007Some are japanese ones too which I don't remember off the top of my head, but I meant direct comparisons. The European Water Princess is Bismark or Nelson, the Jellyfish is the Saratoga's wreck, the French Battleship Princess is Richelieu, and so on.
Hmmm, I think I will try this.
>>36600234That sounds dumb, but report back.
>>36600665Makes sense. Osaka people have funny accents, British people have funny accents. They suit each other.
>>36596118>So is this the worst event so far?Isn't this the question we ask every single event? Why are we still here? Just to suffer?
>>36601020Well it is a small event and chougei is easy to farmIt could be worse
can I beat e3 on memedium in 2 days? the first 2 maps took me 8 hours each even on easy modo and people are saying node m is hard even on memedium.
>>36601138>node m is hard even on memedium.I did it in a few hours without FF, it's a joke.
>>36601138The only people are complaining are people who are upset that a taiha happens on occasion.
>>36601138>memediumSure you canAll the bosses in the event is weak and can be nuked. I doubt there is double Ne in memedium so you can probably cleared the whole map in a day
>>36601138Node M is a joke on memedium honestly, the easier part of the map no doubt. The pain in the ass is the route in P3 and P4. Especially if you are just doing memedium for the Panzer squad, you can just do the quest and go down to easy and ass rape the last two phases if you're so worried.>I doubt there is double Ne in memediumThere is but they are pretty weak compared to on hard.
>>36601422P3 and P4 is easy now with friendsJust use sub and FCF and let superfriends help you clear TP gauge and Victorous
What are the rules to start on point 3? Single fleet with sub and sub tender= point 3 and submarine tag? And what about force X tag?
>>36601592>point 3 unlocked>AS 3SS will get submarine tag>Combined fleet with get Force X>ships in combined fleet must not be tagged with Force H or Force ZRemember to double check before sortieing
>>36601422I want the nazi tank and the corsair so I'm staying on medium
how am i supposed to s rank this twice?
>>36601893believing in your ships.
>>36601893Just be yourself broBy the way the S rank point F and W quest is really easy post cleared
>>36601927What changes?No more locks?
>>36602176yup you can bring nagamutsu or nelson to do huge 9999damage
>>36601892The tank quest is available if you're on medium
https://twitter.com/KanColle_STAFF/status/1438792070357938178 till the 28th. Looks like 甲甲乙 is back on my menu.
>>36602968Bro you are gonna miss out on jinpuu
>>36602990I wasn't going to do the last map on hard anyways. Never done a final map on hard and I have even less free time than ever. Also Just saw that the second map's hard rewards are the last map's medium rewards, so on to 甲乙乙 I go.
>>36602968Fuck 10 days.Not enough time for me.
What do you guys think?
>>36603037You got thisHiryuu and her superfriends are mega strong
>>36603026You'll regret not getting that second Barracuda Mk. 2.Though having done E2H I can see the appeal.If you don't have 12 holepunches and 12 turbines then it might be best to drop.
How painful are the Re and yasen node on p3 and p4?
>>36603083They are okIt is only bad once you hit LD and they fixed R node to 5subs
>>36602241Guess I'll do that then. Got 1 lucky S-rank on F and its not working now.
>>36603050It was a lot closer than I thought. If Naganami was taiha, it would've been a 3 HP choke.>>36603083On P3 and P4 chipping, they're not too bad with a sub tank and FCF. On P4 LD, they're pretty bad, so sparkle your escort fleet.
>>36602968I love procrastinating to the point where the devs decide for me what difficulty I should do. Bong events are trash, didn't even get a Shibafu ship this event.
>>36603083I’ve gotten past yasen node exactly twice...out of like 12 runs. Node support never even touched it fully sparkled.I don’t think cancer is a strong enough word for that pain.
>>36603199>using node support that does nothing to subs, yasen with the dong or double reDon't waste resourcesUse FCF, give your sub a damecon and just go
>>36603199>Node supportIs this your first time dealing with yasen on preboss? Dong is pretty good for handling yasen node but it nerfed support damage
>>36603275Post fleet, I'm still stuck.
>>36603467Lucky for me, I ended up not actually having to use any of the repairs
>>36603519How's your LBAS?Still running Toukai?
>>36603595Two bases on boss. I almost always run Toukai wherever the sub princess shows up.
>>36603661>Recon+ToukaiWhat is this black magic?
>>36603711It's the magic of not having a 4th Toukai
>>36603725Why not have the fourth be a high ASW carrrier based bomber? Does the math work out better to have a recon plane?
>>36603725You have 3 Hiryuus and a Fritz-X but not a 4th Toukai?
>>36603275>>36603519>>36603661GratsVictorious is just a formality after this
Is Nelson/Warspite better for S-ranking node W?So I should do it post clear? Nagamutsu is barely helping.
>>36603886Yeah, I did it in 2 day battles with Zekamashi's post-clear W fleet
>>36603945Okay. Thanks.Though now I'm struggling with U node of all things. Can't get A-ranks.
>>36603975Damn, looks promising.
>>36603777You know what, I never bothered to check until now, but it seems like the Swordfish MkIII and TBM-3W+3S perform better than a land recon in the battle simulator.>>36603778Oh, the Fritz-X is a mistake. That should be Hs293. I only rank once per quarter when I can burn all my ranking quests in one go, and once that happened to be right when the hiryu was a reward.>>36603886Nelson touch with any two 4-slot anti-land ships will hit the supply depots much harder than Nagato ever could, and the enemies revert to their phase 3 configurations which will make getting to W slightly easier.
>>36603996Thanks.Also any advise on A-ranking node U? Seems like a crapshoot since I don't have hole punches for skilled lookouts.Actually against PT boats should I take machine guns or SL?
>>36604049If you don't have holes, I'd try [gun, gun, lookout] on your destroyers, and [main gun, sub gun, lookout, MG] on cruisers.
