R-Area Operation", is underway. The Main Operation consists of 3 maps, and the Extra Operation "Bloody Battle! Bizarre Battle off Cape Bono", consists of 2 maps.-The new ships are Japanese submarine I-201 (E-1/2 drop) and Kagerou-class destroyer Hayashio (E-3 reward), Kurahashi (E-4 drop), and BB-46, The Old Mary (E-5 reward).-The new equipment is the Late Model Radar & Passive Radiolocator + Snorkel Equipment, Late Model Bow Torpedo Mount (4 Tubes), the legendary B-25 Mitchell land-based attack bomber, Ryuusei Kai (Skilled), Shiden Kai (343 Air Group) 701st Fighter Squadron, and 5inch Twin Gun Mount (Secondary Armament) Concentrated Deployment.-The useless hotel has received her Kai-II and Kai-II Juu remodels. Her Kai-II is an FBB version and requires level 88, 3BP, 1 AR, 3 New Model Gun Mount Improvement Mats, and 2 New Model High Temp High Pressure Boilers. Her Kai-II Juu is a BBV and requires level 93. It's possible to convert between the two.-There is a new special attack that can be triggered by the useless hotel Kai-II/IIJuu and Musashi Kai-II. It can also be activated with the hotel and certain battleships as the second ship. Kongou Kai-IIC's special attack has been buffed.-5 new quests have been added. New equipment implemented are the Proto 51cm Triple Gun Mount, 15.5cm Triple Secondary Gun Mount Kai-II, and 10cm Twin High-angle Gun Mount Battery Concentrated Deployment.-Haruna will receive her Kai-IIB side remodel some time this year. It will be showcased in the Mitaina! issue in June.-Musashi Kai-II and useless hotel Kai-II/IIJuu are now able to equip 15.5cm secondary guns and 15m Rangefinder + Radar in a holepunch.-The April ranking rewards have been distributed. The new equipment is the 15m Duplex Rangefinder + T21 Radar Kai-II + Skilled Fire Director.-New and returning Tsuyu CGs and voice lines have been implemented. Furniture and Jukebox BGMs have been updated. -The Summer 2022 Event will take place in Europe again.-As of the Feb 28, 2020 maintenance, due to critical 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 will remain until further notice. 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: Hayashio, Mikuma, multiple Type A DDs, Houshou-->Kai-II side remodel: Kirishima; Shigure (could be Kai-III)
fuck you guys.
>>40272686I finally got two battleships, Fusoun and Ise, and two light carriers, Hiyou and Junyou, and holy fuck, are they game changers. Jesus Christ, I don’t think I can go back. Was it the same with you guys? They make things easier. I’m almost done with with world two and just need to finish decisive Battle: Operation A-Go. I also fucked up Chitose by giving her Chitose A.
>>40272736Hello newfren. Yeah, they were pretty game changing alright. Something to keep in mind though, is that they can can eat through your resources. I'm guessing you are still at the stage where your resources are still in the 4 digits? You're gonna need a lot of resources, even more so in these times when there are a lot more quests and remodels than ever. Also you'll be fine remodeling Chitose. Her carrier form is good and if you end up buying slots, you can dupe her anyways, thought dupes are more mid-game.
>>40272736No one asked for your blog. Fuck off.
>>40272736Glad you're enjoying the game, anon. Keep at it, and good luck.
>>40272452do you mean the damage roll? your ship's damage has to beat the enemy's armor roll or else it only does scratch damage which isn't allowed to sink enemy ships so you will do less and less damage until it just shows miss even if you are hitting.
>>40273248No, because I've had it happen to ships that have reasonably low armor, 120~150, where the ships would would be shocked if they weren't hitting damage required to beat her armor. Then again the RNG in the game can really tell you to go fuck yourself sometimes.
>>40272736I am autistic and decided I wasn't going to use any ships drawn by the potato artist. I scrapped my free akagi and only had hiyo and shoho for carriers which made it impossible for me to get past 5-2 until I got shokaku from construction and unryu from my first event.
>>40273285Man I know that 'tism is strong, but you're gimping the fuck out of yourself with equipment.
Can't wait to marry her.
>>40273596Also fuck Yahagi, chocking whore.
>>40273285>double attack on CLTsLelTCI or bust.
>>40273316It's people like him who deliberately gimp themselves like that then turn around and complain that an event is too hard for him to clear with his self-imposed restriction that really makes you shake your head.
Friendship is great.
>>40273634shut up fag I have had several times where I copy other people's fleet exactly and don't even come close to sinking the boss which I only get to 15% of the time. I bet this is you.
>>40273818Luck is a skill.
>>40272736As powerful as the heavy hitters are, relying too heavily on them is eventually going to eat through your resources and leave your destroyers too weak. It's good to enjoy that power spike, but don't forget to cover your bases too.
>>40272736>Hiyou and JunyouLoved these lasses when I first got them. Then got pissy when events required fast ships. Eventually I hole punched both of them so i could use them more often. Just wait till you get your first CAV. You'll shit bricks.
>>40273316That's why despite the fact that I will never equip Shoucuckoo with planes I still K2'd her just for the equipment quests. Waste of a catapult for the horrible ship but that plane is more than worth it.
>>40273818Thing is, they also had equipment which you could only get from completing quests that required potatoes, that you refused to touch. The equipment they had made all the difference.
>>40273316>>40273634Forgot to add, we used to have this guy who hated all submarines for some arbitrary reason and scrapped them on sight throw a shitfit when winter 2017 required you to use subs to clear the first part of E3. And yet he still acted as if he had some moral high ground. Fact is, such people never once blame themselves, or their arbitrary self-imposed restrictions, for their own failures.Say what you will about stats autists, but at least they don't complain or attempt to shift the blame when an event map is too hard for them to breeze through. They just suck it up and keep going.>>40273818>has Kitakami and AyanamiIt's exactly why you can never be this person.
Hayai. Is there a leveling spot this event?
>>40272736Jun'you was my first taste of CV power, too. Loved her so much that ended up putting my ring on her later down the line.
How hard is E4? Should I use my married KTKM in E3 or E4?
how do I allocate my AO and Taitei?please respond
The air nodes at E3 are so fucking bullshit.
>>40274049Is it also a self-imposed restriction to not use dupes?Given how the game works, I find this to be a rather crippling restriction.
>>40274456>Is it also a self-imposed restriction to not use dupes?I don't know about him, but I've been doing no-dupes for a while and it does make the game more interesting.
>>40274401Getting wrecked by eight billion planes is part of the authentic late war IJN experience.
Lads, I'm done for.Carry on without me.
>>40274543>Yamato got like a million AA guns during her refit>shot down zero planes in Ten-go>only US casualties were planes destroyed when the hotels magazines explodedHow was jap AA that bad?
>>40274565You can put a million AA guns on a boat, but if they're as bad as the 25mm Triple Autocannons, they'll achieve jack and shit.
>>40274560Same but buckets. I'm down to 13.Slowly starting to regret doing E3 on Memedium. At least the TP phase is over.Gonna run Expedition 2 over the weekend and try afain. If by some miracle I get through E3, I'll do E4 and E5 on casual.
>>40274543Carriers ruined naval warfare forever
>>40274565>>40274579The only good AA guns during ww2 were made by the Italians.
>>40274456Yes, it is.>>40274470As long as you don't complain about others using dupes or events being too tough because you don't use dupes, by all means.
>>40274795I think dupes make the game too easy, but if other people want to use them (I did in the past), it's up to them.I'm not gonna be the ShipThis Police.
>>40274922It's not so much making the game easy, but I just find the idea of relying solely on the frontliners to provide intel instead of trying things out for myself a bit distasteful.Shiplocks being a thing, without dupes I have to wait 3 weeks before starting an event or risk getting screwed.
>>40274946>It's not so much making the game easy, but I just find the idea of relying solely on the frontliners to provide intel instead of trying things out for myself a bit distasteful.>Shiplocks being a thing, without dupes I have to wait 3 weeks before starting an event or risk getting screwed.Yeah, that's annoying and also why I only cleared E2H now (thanks to green tea).On an unrelated note, ChitoChiyo are way too valuable to use so early in no-dupe mode.
>>40274946Not to mention that not using dupes gives you absolutely no room to breathe if an even easier route is found that would require you to overhaul your entire plan to be able to take advantage of it, you make a mistake sortieing to the wrong starting point, or even if you want to have an easier time than having to send the resource guzzlers out just to farm a ship drop. It's downright suffocating.
>>40274565If you want specifics for Ten-Go:- IJN fleet had no air cover so the swarms of USN escorts have nothing better to do than strafe anything exposed on the enemy ships. That turned all of the unprotected AA mounts into useless deathtraps.- The protected mounts were packed super close together in nice, neat lines hard against Yamato's superstructure so they had awful arcs of fire.- Numbers. USN strike waves were so big the IJN AA was dispersed all over the sky instead of concentrated on specific planes. Made it almost impossible to hit anything.As to IJN AA in general, they was almost entirely dependent on the 25mm, which was too small to do all the work by itself. It didn't have enough range. They had no equivalent to the allied 40mm or the German 37mm guns, and that left a big gap in their AA protection.They also didn't make good use of their AA artillery. The 10cm duck guns were actually very good AAA guns but the IJN didn't use nearly enough of them and the ones they did have had no impact because they had poor fire control.
>>40275013Okay, but were the AA shells for BB primary guns as silly and useless as they appear?
>>40274456My exception for no dupes are ships that have extremely different useful forms (ChitoChiyo AVs vs carriers) or ships that are just way too in their category with little competition (I'd keep a dupe Atlanta if I ever got one).But I don't want to be too meta-reliant, so I won't keep dupe CLTs (past farming their torps) and will instead try to develop my own comps that can work without them.
>>40275482On smaller ships like cruisers they aren't so bad, it's like a dual purpose gun but slightly bigger.On Yamato-class, it's just pointless. Firing those guns creates a massive shockwave that has the habit of btfo'ing whatever is on deck, which means that if you fire those, you can't have people manning the AA guns on deck near them or the two autocannons on top of the higher turret.
>>40272736With implementation of aircraft experience all CV(L)s turned into major powerhouses, with good planes shitty CVL can hit as hard as BB while being 5 times cheaper to run.They're super amazing, concentrate on getting better planes asap.
>>40272736Actually potato retard raises a good question. Where's your free gib Akagi?
>>40275011If you're not willing to dupe, you shouldn't be playing this game.
>>40274049>Say what you will about stats autists, but at least they don't complain or attempt to shift the blame when an event map is too hard for them to breeze through. They just suck it up and keep going.Isn't complaining like the guaranteed method of helping to improve your luck?
Do I need historicals for E3?
>>40276691Just started myselfSeems pretty easy
>>40276766The whole event is a cakewalk
>>40274325shut up fuckbuki>no I meant the jap wikithis is an eop thread
Is it just RNG or does CF diamond on Node P in E3 work better than the attack formation?
>>40277658Then go play another game retard. This isn't the place for spoonfeeding
>>40277658>he can't read nip
>>40277658Imagine not being able to read simple kanji.
How hard is E3 node U debuff?Can I even do it with less than the full 7 ships?
>>40278145Imagine not killing youself asap...
>>40278145Casuals have ruined this board
>>40278307Unlike you I have Mary.
>>40278145I also use futaba for event comp you only need to press translate page and look at the image
>>40278320Unlike me you don't play the game at all llama.
>>40278363Have a (You).
>>40278375>here's a fake capWHOA!
>>40278375Kill yourself llama. Stealing from leddit is old hat.
>>40278395>>40278397Find this shit on reddit or wiki, go on. I'm not the abo you fucking retards. If you can't read your ships' kanji it's your own fault.
>>40278364How can a girl be so plain yet so hot
>>40272736That's a cute Mama boat pic.
>>40278449Gym uniforms and short haircuts are difficult to compete with.
I don't get why some of you had trouble running EO, I just upgraded from 5.01 to 5.18 and it works fine. Did you not install .NET runtime 6?
>>40278899Retards and people who shouldn't be playing the game
Seriously, how are you supposed to S-rank node U on E3?
>>40279280Read. The. Wiki.It's simple. People shouldn't have to spoon feed you.
>>40279303Oh sure. I didn't know reading the wiki provides some magical buff which allows you to easily do full hard clears. Should have known those wiki guys are able to link to the servers so once you read their page you magically be able to S-rank everything.I wouldn't be fucking asking if I wasn't having trouble.
>>40278417>max level YamashiroWait a minute, isn't that one of our translators?
>>40279417Then your comp or equipment is fucked. Go see what zemakashi or someone else is using. It's not this threads job to spoon-feed every retarded newfag.
>>40279544That's what I'm fucking following.But just for you next time I'm spoonfeeding.
>>40279280It's a TP node, go for A rank and relax.
>twins subs are loversI fucking knew it fuck you tanaka...and thank you I guess.
>>40279504nope you're confusing with fusou guy>>40279585retard
>>40279585It's probably for the debuff step
>>40279612In that case: the debuff in E3 is a giant pain in the ass and should be ignored.
>>40278173>>40279280IIRC it was a pain and i just kept rolling until I cleared. Either pray to RNG, go in raw, or wait for FF
>>40279622But what I'm hearing and a couple of my own runs indicates that LD is also a giant PITA.Are you telling me that it's just bad luck and I should continue ramming against LD without debuff?
>>40279649you will waste enough res on debuff to do like 20 LD runssee?
>>40279654Well, while I don't have all those +max oxy torps, I do have them at +6 for the most part, and less for the quints with only one +6 sextuple.So to put it another way, do I need a miracle to clear LD without debuff? Or it's just okay?But anyway, since the fleets use different slots anyway, if this run doesn't S-rank I'll go slam my head on LD a couple more times. Not sure if I want to wait for FF since I still need to farm w/e it is in E4/5, unless FF comes out like next week or w/e.
Oh wow, I tried not having LBAS air cover on route like zkms suggested in favor of all LBAS to U like kiton and now the node suddenly becomes a real bitch, not just the air raids which was what I previously hit but even the sub nodes.Looks like it's trying LD again.
At least I'm glad I took the time to get all my quad oxy LM torps to +6 during the time when I had nothing cheap I wanted to upgrade.Otherwise I'll be even more fucked atm. I guess I've never expected I'll need to run 5 of those fuckers at the same time.
i just returned from travelling, give me a tldr of the event please and also about the new quests
>>40279779There's a wiki for a reason
>>40279779Will she be a good mother?
>>40279779Hotel got a kai ni which is broken. Also got a new touch mechanic that you will be using this E4/5.
Well I feel dumb now. Apparently I've never actually engaged the LD comp and was just assuming through my fleet's anemic performance pre-LD where I think I only got 1-2 clean S-ranks.So this time my fleet arrived at boss all green and entered NB with full green escort and chuuha boss and taiha CV Hime.Ichiban dealt the finishing blow as Umikaze was chuuhaed by the boss so apparently couldn't pen the armor.Was on parallel for the record, much better performance than the green Ts I got pre-LD.
>>40279504No, I'm the typesetter. Which reminds me, new job has been busy so I haven't had time to 4koma omakes. Maybe before the summer ends.>>40279607There's no Fusou TLer.
>>40279918>There's no Fusou TLer.I don't remember asking
Which Gundam is Mary?
>>40279987What's the point in reposting this shit?
>>40280043It stirs my imagination
https://zekamashi.net/202205-event/bungosuidou-nukete-2/Why does Hamakaze run a standard 10cm gun instead of the AAFD version? Mistake or am I misreading what it is? Afaict that's the only AACI possible too.
>>40280135●空襲対策に、浜風の固有対空カットインを採用しています。・このカットインは素対空7以下の高角砲と、対空電探で条件を満たします。・Eマスの空襲はあまり強くないので、対空カットインなしでもOKです。Needs to be 7 or less AA for her specific cut-in. Same for Isokaze.
https://en.kancollewiki.net/Aerial_Combat#Anti-Air_Cut-in>best hotel secondary can only match Atlanta AACI and not beat itPathetic.
>>40280178Thanks. I couldn't even remember her having special AACI since way back all special AACIs were shit compared to just having duck guns.
>>40280215It's still weaker but as he says, it's good enough for that map. The wiki updated all the AACI already. Didn't realize we were at 45 distinct ones since all we ever use is duck, Fletcher, Maya, or Atlanta AACI set-ups even if different ones get triggered.
Before I fuck up, is there tag based routing in E5 like the last event?I'm doing medium and I want to be sure.
>>40280231Because of combo rates?Because looking at >>40280193 it seems that unless it's a duck, then the generic DD AACI using duck guns is weaker than Isokaze's specific AACI.But yeah, we do rarely make use of all the others. Those RN ones are nice though if you have a hole punch. Since it's just the main gun + a AA gun.
>>40280267Not this time, at least for memdium.
>>40279971Nu or Narrative
Hayashio is such a lewd girl, in a different way from Oyashio.
Is it worth doing E3 on Hard?Getting another copy of the submarine snorkle seems a bit unrewarding.
>>40280473Hayashio's face says it all.
>>40280492You can't always trust art, just look at Ishigaki.
I want Natsushio for the complete Kagerou harem already.
>>40280489You don't even use snorkles that often, sub events are too rare.
>Suffering on E4-1>Use FCF>Stop sufferingI guess I was being stupid for too long. Wondering about LD though.
>>40280569Keep it on, you don't get taiha's when it's on.
Do you guys have a favorite shirayatsu girl?
>>40280569You can use tengo tag for phase 1
>>40280505Shhhhh, she's up to something.
>>40280653>still no Yamakaze
>>40280231>since all we ever use is duck, Fletcher, Maya, or Atlanta AACI set-upsI remember using meme bong BB AACI several times when I had literally 0 other AACIs in the fleet, it was fun.
>>40280653Did they overhaul all of Murasame's lines at some point? All of them have different inflections from before. I checked her lines at non-kai, kai and kai 2 and none of them sound familiar.
Shit,I'm short on 2 blueprints for hotel kai ni, how much easier does it make EO?
>>40279987I want to IMAGINE korochan and HARD POMF=3 Mary at the same time
5 days.... I'm free from E3P2!!
Seems like a lot of people are already finishing up the event. Lotta artists I follow already cleared E5. Makes me concerned the event will end before I am able to start.
>>40282117Friends fleet announcement isn't even out yetJust take it easy. I am only just starting the E3 transport phase
It's a miracle, he drew something on model for once.
The ass was FAT
I really fucking hate the hotel and I'm glad her big moment was more flaccid than my dick. Shame next event is in Europe instead of giving the cranes another moment to shine though.
>>40279987This is why she calls Korochan aneki despite being the older one btwShe's ashamed of being shorter than her tiny little sister so she pretends to be the younger one
>>40282449But who will shine in Europe this time?
>>40279987Sxarpkaze and Chinokaze?
>>40281149You and me both, brother.
>>40281223come on dude, I started E3-2 today and the bar has dropped quickly, the path isn't really hard as some nips suggested and Maya-sama does all the work in the boss node.>>40282117Calm down, you still have 3 weeks to go, don't panic over some artists doing the event in whinny mode.
When'd you realize that the Japanese should have announced that Yamato was a super 70000 ton back in 1940 to 1941? So the USN and UK would have been more hesitate to confront it.
>>40283081Back before KanColle really. Once she and her sister were nearly complete there was no reason to keep them a secret.
>>40283081They should have announced it when it would drive the Burgers to go "We better make an even bigger battleship!"
>>40283104More than likely it would just force the Americans to build a Montana with 8 18 inch guns instead of the planned 12 16 inch guns they had historically. But that probably would have taken three years to build at least.
>>40283081Burgers still would fight like pussy
>>40283235The only pussies were the Japanese who felt that they had to do a sneak attack and sink ships at the start of the war. If the Japanese were truly brave they would have not needed to do that. Same with the British at Taranto.
>>40282929>I started E3-2 today and the bar has dropped quicklyIt is a slog fest so far for me.I started few hours ago and I am only getting 77TP per trip
>>40283247The Japanese didn't do a sneak attack retard.
>>4028326777 tp/run is a good amount for E3P2. It's a slogfest for everyone made longer by all the retreats when someone flubs her AACI. What I hate is having to s-rank u node for the debuff.
>>40280674Saw that on Kiton, I'll consider it if SF ever starts sucking real bad.Probably need to actually build my own fleet though, annoying.>>40280571Same with TP phases it feels. The moment I swap out DLCs for combat loadouts for the last push the route starts sucking.
>>40283365>What I hate is having to s-rank u node for the debuff.I'll try a couple runs at the boss without a debuff first.I think you might actually need better equipment to S-rank node U compared to just S-ranking the boss.
is it worth it to nagamutsu e1?
>>40283936You are using them for E3No reason not to
It took me this long to notice that Akitsushima is left-handed.
https://exhentai.org/g/2254720/fece31591c/Need commission, Llama
Started doing E3 TP gauge.I have no idea how I'm going to S rank this during the debuff phase.
Any of you get pass E4H-1 without support expeds?Also just to confirm, but I'm assuming that tags for E4 are determined by fleet type, not start location right? Like if I run a STF it locks to the correct tag?
>>40284667Don't. Try LD first and see how it goes.Might be easier to ram the full boss than attempting to debuff.
https://twitter.com/KanColle_STAFF/status/1540270430036295680Thank you, Admirals!"KanColle" Limited time sea area, first stage operation [Fierce battle!

Please be aware of the admirals who aim to capture the friendly fleet before anchoring!The friendly fleet will plunge into the deepest part of the first, third and fifth operational waters!#KanColle
>>40284559This is fucking hot. I love nonpenetrational stuff.
>>40285283I don't even remember E1 now.But for E3 it does mean that debuff is now superfluous.
>>40285283I miss "can this".
>>40284667E3-3 is fucking tough node LI am contemplating sending 1base of fighters toward there like I did during TP phase or sortieing Atlanta
>>40285283So 2 weeks left on event?Iirc last event only lasted for one more week after FF was introduced.
>>40285883Next weekend mean July 2 or 3So event will probably end around the following monday on 11th
>>40285708>sortieing AtlantaDo this.Don't you already need a CL in main fleet?
>>40285965I am using Kuma to carry seaplanes
For a supposedly easy map, E4 is rougher than I expected.
>>40287557>EO>supposedly easy mapimbecile
Just got to E3 last danceI am just gonna take a 1week break and wait for superfriends
>>40287557>>40287677But it is ez.
>>40287557Just cleared E4p2 route is pretty harsh but You can fcf and still kill the boss
>>40287822What's the key ships for E4 and E5?I feel like going all out for E3
>>40287677This event is easy as piss.
>Oh hey this run is going fine, only Noshiro got chuuhaed and she isn't my TCI boat.>Oh wait, Taihou got a big hole in her.
>>40287822My good run ended with no one cutting in. So now I'm continuing.
>>40288005https://kitongame.com/Go check what kiton uses. He also has a list of historical bonuses you can use to plan.
This is ridiculous. Like do I need to hole punch my TCI DDs or something.Fuckers refuse to cutin.
>>40288230what map what ships
Is the general consensus Fast Yamato for E4 and Slow Yamato for E5?
>>40288316Just venting on E4-2, but I made it through.Now I'm on the next step though while I know what to do, I'm not exactly sure why I'm doing it. Shortcut or something I presume.
>>40280674I wish I had known that before all those runs.So I can just use the fleet that I'll end up using for the last phase of e5?
>>40288005>>40288478For p1 you can use ragtag fleet (purple tag) to unlock the gimmick and proceed to stf tengo yamato (green tag) to kill the bossDo the gimmick to move your lbas closer and proceed to p2 you want ctf (blue tag) just use your decent to good ships but not tengo here i used akagi, poi, kiso etc.Do gimmick again for shortcut and back to tengo stf for p3Ez
>>40288619Great, thank you for the explanation.
>>40288898We need more black shipgirls
>>40288906No, we don't.
Sammy Kai-ni when
>>40289118>They still can't find GambyPottery.
>>40288906>Musashi>blackAnon, tanned and black are not the same thing.
>>40289118Who cares, that whole battle is overrated and worthless in the end.
>>40289118Tanaka should meet with this guy
>>40289211Of course there'd be a weeb among the boatfuckers looking for wrecks. Poor Gamby nendo probably got them lost though, shouldn't have sent her down.
>>40289211Based.Also, Gamby being Gamby they should probably look for her in the North Sea or something.
>>40289211>lost Gamby memes manifesting into realityI need a laughing Tanaka.
>>40283274Yeah they did. It was literally in their fucking plans. Same shit with port Arthur.
That was fast, now they want a fast Yamato.
>>40289292No retard. They declared war just before the attack. It is not a surprise attack.
>>40289211>>40289221This is the same team that found Johnston awhile back.Zeco at least knows that they are out there (and likes his girls).
Huh. Yamato switching forms pass the first time only requires resources but not other materials? Thought it would eat up dev mats too like Akaga.
Oh fuck. I thought zkms didn't have a high level Akitsushima, should have taken that as a sign he was using a dupe. Now I'm stuck with my low level no hole punch one in E4H instead of my married one with hole punch.
>>40289374Isn't Kamo for E3?
>>40289374You don't need Akitsushima for E4.
>>40289374you can use kamoi or yamashio maru for E3 iirc you dont need AV or AO for E4
>>40289385For both. But you need a fast one over in E4 so now I'm kinda fucked on air power.And it's Kamo, I don't actually need 2 of them with hole punches.But, looking at Kiton apparently you could use Yamashio Maru instead?
>>40289318They didn’t declare war at all. They were “delayed”. By the way they conveniently failed to declare war on the Brits before attacking as well. Nice revisionism.
>>40289355They're going to look for Shoukaku and Taihou next week.
>>40289399>>40289408Yeah, Kiton uses Yamashio Maru instead. Also helpfully provides the routing rules too so I ain't fucked.
>>40289438Shit, my body is ready.
And I foolishly hole-punched Yamashio Maru before checking FP to see if I actually needed to hole punch her. Apparently I don't if I follow zkms 205 FP. Forgotten how much better actual fighters are compared to SPFs.W/e, I'll just give her a rocket then.
>>40289438I wonder if they are in better shape than Akagi. Kaga was in horrible shape and was indeed burnt to the water line like that old sketch of her.
He posted some info on a facebook weeb page. Midway expedition is cancelled for next year and he is trying to contact Tanaka
By the way. A guy in Japan has plans to find USS Albacore.
Do you actually need debuff for E4H?
>>40289438Marianas for Fall confirmed.
>>40289414Yes you can.
>>40289588Certainly glad I wasn't lazy about getting and levelling her. Iirc she was from a quest or something.
>>40289596She was Winter E-3 reward.
>>40289596You're thinking of Un'you (Yawata Maru).
Oops. Apparently unlike other touches Yamato touch uses CF formation 4. So I touched on some irrelevant preboss node.
>>40289502Tanaka would instantly jump on the opportunity.
>>40289614>>40289624Ah, that explains why I couldn't find her when I ctrl-F on the quest page.
>>40289470Are there even any closer pics of Akagi and Kaga by now? So far all we see is that the flight decks are mostly gone, either burnt or fallen off during the sinking, and that the hull themselves are more or less intact.
>>40289776They are really, really deep. I think they need some really specialized sub to take close up shots.
>>40289502Was the Midway expedition meant as examining Kaga and Akagi or searching for the dragons?
>>40289432Whatever burger. Your history is always wrong.
>>40289785Guess they would use the kind of sub they used on the expeditions to Bisko. She's almost as deep.
Fuck this map holy shit.
>>40289830Abyssal Hayashio's hands look funny.Is she praising the Sun?
>>40289830Wait for friends.
Just gonna leave this old thing here.
>>40289797From Eien no Zero, or Eternal Zero. Jap (and right-wing nationalist) author even said embassy delayed the declaration of war until the next day, due to partying or whatever. Sure the Yamamoto may not have intended for that to be the case, but it doesn't change the fact that it happened. Sorry your hate boner for America gets in the way of your judgement.
>>40289830Your fleet is shit m8>Sendaiuse someone more useful like spf mule Tama or Kuma>Chiyodause Suzukuma cvl or Junyou>Mizuhosame as above you get 1 extra raid but more damage>TakaoUse choukai >TanikazeUse another DD with damage bonus and switch Abukuma to oasw duty with minisub and sonar dc
>>40289797It's actually right most of the time. Sorry that you on the losing side of history.
This is the face of a man respected enough for his dedication to wanting to fuck ships that he'd be invited by respected ww2 ship wreck locators to join them on an expedition.
>>40289942What other alternatives there are to him when it comes Asian boatfuckers? Bunch of his old boatfucker pals (like Zeco) back when boatsluts were still niche genre and Agreppio guy?
>>40289932>>40289919Yeah you guys are so "right" that you violate human rights. Japanese history puts it as not a surprise attack so it isn't.
>shifting goal posts
>>40290231No because I can just as easily point out other places were attacked first.
>>40289942I'd let him drown during the expedition for all the crap he's put in the events.
Muh totes not surprise attack, the diplomats just were late to deliver the declaration would work so much better if IJN also hadn't done the exact same thing during the Russo-Japanese War.
>>40290301How is it the Japanese fault that the burgers are inept.
>>40290308So the British and the Dutch were inept too?
>>40290353We're all inept here.
>>40290275Then point them out. Oh wait. You can't. Other than China which was already at war for two years.
>>40290353Declaring war on one ally is enough.
>>40290360No the Philippines and other islands were attacked earlier the same day retard. They had enough time to realize what was going on.
>>40290361Not really. That's why Germany and Italy, and the rest of the axis countries had to declare war separately on the USA.
>>40290378Japan was not aligned or part of the Axis.
>>40290368>The Commonwealth of the Philippines was attacked by the Empire of Japan on 8 December 1941, nine hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor Gotta disagree with you.
This guy lives in some other reality.
>>40290410Let him keep posting, I'm vaguely interested in this guy's alternate history timeline.
Wtf, E4H LD and suddenly the route is handing out free taihas.Afaict the comps are still the same.
>>40290002Speaking of Arpeggio, collab again when?
Well, cleared E4H. No clean S-rank because the escort flag survived for some reason.So how is E5?
>>40290567>Arpeggio, collab again whenWhen Arpeggio decides it wants to do a collab
Holy fuck these sub nodes can suck my dick, people running without any ASW at all are crazy.
Cool torp tubes.
>>40290892Hey Choukei, why are they empty?
>>40290969Those are Sammy's silly. Choukai's would be blown up from a shell hitting them.
I seriously hope that 6k hp DJ hime does not become the norm for future events.
>>40292656It'll be 8K next event
>>40290216Being whined at by someone as pathetic as you gives me a massive boner, please keep going
>>40292656HP is just a number. AA hime in summer 2015 had 255 HP and it was considered one of the hardest events ever.
>>40290984They found Choukai's, and they were empty. They were also quad launchers, unlike the twin launchers that some sources said she still had.
>>40292903I miss times when 2 BB Himes as main boss support felt like a real threat. Full historical bonus events were a mistake.
>>40292903That was the first event with a debuffing mechanic so no one really knew how it worked for a while, not to mention it reset every day. Historical bonus wasn't a thing so 273 armor without CLTs was a pain in the ass to penetrate. We also still had random routing, including an unavoidable random chance to off-route on the first fucking node.
>>40292988Historical bonus is cancerous as fuck. Random routing wasn't so bad since the chance was low.
>>40292988>debuff reset every dayGod.
>>40293004Historical bonus/routing is the reason we don't use 6 dupe sets of the same 12 ships on every map of every event. I'll admit it's an imperfect solution that's gotten out of hand, but it's still better than scrapping 80% of the roster because they're literally useless.
>>40293004I don't mind historical bonus occasionally on really hyped events. It was cool for both Leyte events, with CGs for ships and all. But now, every event has like 100 ships with historical bonuses, who the fuck knows why. Especially this event was supposed to be focused on Ten-Go (ignore the fact we did it twice already), but instead we have Ten-Go + shitload of some other ships for no fucking reason, no new CGs, basically only Yamato Kai Ni. Why does Shigure or Gotland have a bonus on E-5 for fuck sake?
>>40293065>no new CGs, basically only Yamato Kai NiThat's because Leyte was actually important and hyped on its own unlike the shitty hotel getting obliterated by planes.
>>40293065Tanaka knows that Zui > Hotel.
>>40292903>>40292988We have come a long wayThis was considered the toughest event ever some time ago. Now it is just a normal node in 3-5
>>40293151Man, I still remember flash and using api links
>>40293214That fucking lottery. Do they still do that or can anyone get a KanColle account if they want now?
>>40293222I don't think they have a lottery anymore. But damn, that brings back memories. I remember not getting into lottery and then forgetting about the game for a year before some friend talked about it.
>>40293053That also had the side effect of making 100 slotters be forced to buy slots.
>>40293222The lottery literally got killed off when they added the Hashirajima megaserver in 2015.
>>40293267I remember thay day fondly. After failing for months i finally made it in.
>>40293053Historical routing is fine. Historical bonus isn't.
>>40293214Aren't API links still good for resetting PvP?>>40293279Did you keep failing? I remember the lottery being a complete joke and being ridiculously easy to get in after the first few months of hell.
>>40293311From what I remember, I just registered on DMM and tried to play the game, following connection guides. I distinctly remember getting past the block, but somehow I wasn't able to play the game. So I just forgot about it until later.
>>40293311It didn't help that the lottery was usually at 3-4am my local time and I usually fell asleep before then. I was just unlucky as my friend got 2 accounts during that span I was trying.
>>40293279YeaIt was hell to get inI remember trying to get in after the Yamato event and was only able to get a slot for myself just few weeks before IBS
Updated OP:https://pastebin.com/2AAeKefJI'm finally going back to trying to complete my Fujimi Suzuya tomorrow so if you have some recommendation on brush painting hit me.
It's time to drop some truth bombs on cruisers in the second world war. With two exceptions all cruisers were light cruisers.There were only two true heavy cruisers in the second world war and that's because of the naval treaties.
do I really need the plane from e4? I am tempted to just do easymodo so I can completely ignore tags for eo. I already have 4 rockets plus lepu kai and fucker wolf.
>>40294009Retard E4 is the easiest part and you get 200++ screw value from Yamato radar
>need x2 LBAS AS for debuff>they stop attacking your LBAS
>>40294085I don't even want to try hard and I don't care about the radar because I don't even have yamato
There are still zero ships that feel that living on is a torture (maybe unless you marry them) and when they sink, see it as a release from that torture?
>>40294143>need to check if you have debuff>can't get to boss nowI will never understand why this game is like this
>>40293796Weak bait, but I'll bite. What 2 cruisers are you considering, Alaska and Guam?
According to Momo's sinking line, sinking ships has the exact same effect as scrapping them. Instead of becoming abyssals, they just become normal girls and go on with their lives.
>>40288619>and proceed to stf tengo yamato (green tag) to kill the bossWait a moment, you mean you can kill first boss (BB hime) with tengo stf instead of dumb single fleet I was using?
>>40295209>dumb single fleetyou only use this fleet for gimmick
>>40295182Hard to go on with your life when you're sinking to the bottom of the ocean.
>>40295339I feel like a complete retard now.
>>40295369Fairy magic acts as damecon to revive the shipgirl when she sinks, but in exchange her equipment vanishes without a trace, along with the ability to be a shipgirl.
>>40294677I meant two cruiser classes. But yes Duetschland class and Alaska class were the only true heavy cruisers of ww2. What The French called the sufferer class and the USN designation system give the fact away that pretty much all other cruisers designed are light cruisers.
>>40295370Don't worry. I cleared that part with Striking Fleet.
Speaking of Momo, how many people actually like her enough to marry her?
When the fuck will Kamelie finally do those Maikaze and Nowaki doujins?
>>40295182So you think there's canonically a talent agency as well?
>>40295646Yes, and the admiral is in charge of it. This entire setting is just a setup for idols to perform and shine. KanColle is an idol franchise at its core.
Expeditions are just jobs. Sorties are just lives. PvP exercises are just rehearsals. Abyssals are part of an idol agency that competes against yours. Those bosses which event rewards are based on, are actually girls that you successfully manage to poach from their agency when you sink them.Also, ship constructions are just auditions you hold to recruit more idols. It's similar to the concept of scouting in other idol games. Some of them allow you to obtain dupe cards, just like this one. Now you know why this game has dupes.Come to think of it, canthis really does share many similarities with the original Cinderella Girls game (the one before Deresute).
>>40295182What's her sinking line? That doesn't seem to fit with all the other sinking lines or adaptations of canthiscollection.
>>40295396Deutclands are too small to be a proper 1st class cruiser. A proper 1st class cruiser is either similar in size to or larger than its concurrent battleship design. For a pretty good example of this, take a look at the RN's 1st cruisers in comparison to their battleship counterparts during the first 2 decades of the 20th century; most of them are almost the same size as their battleship counterparts, and every time Bongs try to build smaller cruisers for financial reasons, they have to scale them back up in size after a class or two because the smaller ships couldn't effectively do the roles required for 1st class cruisers.
>>40295799I want to be Nagano-chan's producer.
Why would you even take TCF for E5 TP phase?
>>40295900OKAY but consider this>tons of 10/10 underage idols are willing to suck your dick for a chance to get a promo or a live
>>40299408>Idol who sucks your dick for fameI sleep>Shipgirl who sucks your dick for loveReal shit
>>40299553I'm willing to admit that I have serious lack of hot girls sucking my dick in my life right now, so I'm more that fine with either.
>>40299408>>40299553There's not a single good reason to want someone else to suck my dick when I can just do it myself
All the way up to E5H-3 so far and it seems okay.Is that last boss the real annoying one?
>>40299553Both are vapid cunts who will suck the dick of any admiral/producer.
>>40295396What about Dunkerque, which had very similar specs to the Alaskas?But for real though, while the USN may have considered the Pensacolas light cruisers were it not for the naval treaties, the Baltimores were definitely true heavy cruisers. Similarly, the Admiral Hippers are far too fat to be seriously considered as light cruisers.
Is the final map this time that hard that no one's saying its a victory lap?Anyway I'm at the final boss, just levelling up my new Shiden Kai first.
>>40301044It's practically free. Just don't be dumb
>>40299553Most idols in im@s are already in love with P though so that isn't really an issue depending on the game. And it's always the idols that are in love with (You) that are more popular than the ones that aren't.
I miss when we had autistic arguments over romanisation so some people defaulted to chink romanisations instead.
E3-3 chipping route is bullying me and I've just even started, this goddamn map.
