>>983891I need her yet the medal shop still hasn't had a bb rotation yet for Amagi, it hurts
>story for pre event has been leaked>Musashi's is pretty much name dropped multiple timesI would say the chances of her being the next UR look pretty likely but we can only know for sure when JP annoucment happens her is the leak by the way>https://docs.google.com/document/d/1w9CEbOo1UM0eRWtSccVhInMbIPtpJDiWEzUHUyyCv6o/edit#heading=h.90kd4jn2hfhldo note due to CCP rules Mu is refered to as lord crocodile in the document

what will increasing the level cap for guilds mean
>>988661Probably higher tier guild operations with more gold plates?
>tfw anime grills will never be real bros... fuck this crap world
>pre-event story all but confirms siren capture is comingHope your ready for tentacle play SKKs
>quick skill development campaignnice
>>981652I wonder if they’ll eventually add modern ships and weapon systems, I think there’s a plethora of Cold War era stuff they could draw from.
>>990810I doubt they will ever add modern ships since they still have plenty of WW2 ships to go through along with pre war and WW1 era ships, but ever since the chink missile retros cold war weapon systems are a possibility
>>990810We're eventually going to get Sirens which is super high tech alien tier shit. Doubt we'll get more modern stuff from real life, but the DE missile retros were a surprise and sort of coincided with the whole jumping timelines thing. Jump enough of them and you're bound to run into one that advanced their tech further than yours.
>>989687I want to turn her into a loli then have her 24/7 wrapped around my neck
>Jintsuu metaoh no
>>993143We probably get all 3 Sendai Meta if they still follow the trend.
>>993199>three meta vanguards in a rowwell at least its a mix up, also>leaked pic of akagi over an arbiterwonder if the context is they actually beat one or its just her being over a replicated version like the pre event talked about
>Junaus skill now results in a pvp case were she is Hiriyuu but with heals (instead of dying to a lethal hit she still lives and heals the entire fleet by 25%)AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
How do i know if a ship is good
>>993299Lusty's augment looks pretty good.
>>993321look for the following>obviously stats and rarity do play a factor (however do not this isn't exactly univerasal)>skills that either give a massive advantage or sync well with other ships (best example is Helenas SG skill that makes bosses take extra damage and the wolfpacak skill making kraut subs the best in the game)>and finally the niche they fill in for the type of battle you are getting into (for example San Diego is an overall good ship but her value massively increases for worls 12-13 due to high AA power)>recently augments have also become a factor which can range from giving slight buffs to very valuable buffs (Grafs augment and from the leaks potentially Montys augment)if you want to know which specific ship is considered good just ask, and also remember its more than possible to make most ships work for the majority of the game so don't be afraid to deploy a favorite of yours if you want
>>993328I would say the same applys to Ayanamis and Montys aug, they have been really stepping it up with them recently which is pretty great
>>993334is this a game where having the top tier units matters for anything pve related? like a stage that's impossible to clear unless you only use maxed out tier 1 units?
>>993334>>skills that either give a massive advantage or sync well with other ships (best example is HelenaYeah Helena took me all of 3 seconds to identify as greatI also have prinz eugen with the triple shield which i assume is also blocking shots to the other front liners and shouhou the heal carrierthe main thing im struggling with is like damage types and efficiencies and shit its annoying to compare anything, is there any rules of thumb i should know for how to setup my front line?>recently augmentsI have Trento meta and im upgrading the first move which seems to be dealing decent damage, she is the only one i can put an augement on and its either lance or greatsword, i have 2 ores or whatever which would make a blue weapon but not sure how rare the ores are and if i should wait for more to craft a yellow one?
here is mus barrage >https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1se4y187Pd>https://streamable.com/rz8kaq
>>993440>is this a game where having top tier units matters for anything pve relatedbeyond the current late game shit like w14 and the arbiter fights not really, and even when you do reach those places you will still have plenty of options to use (which reminds me a retro item for the ship yuudiachi is coming back with its mini game to get it, make sure you get it)>>993454for damage types for now I will say focus more on getting them decent equipment, as for setting up your front line here is the basic set up>bote on the furthest right should be your tank since that is the spot that takes the most damage (since you have Eugen I am going to assume she is probably the tankiest ship you have at the moment so place her there)>middle spot is for the squishiest ship, in other words usually your dds or very fragile cls usually go there>flagship spot is reserved for those who can take a hit since if she sinks your fleet is automatically defeated, do not certain ships like bismark have a flagship skill so keep that in mind, especially when sorties with their fellow faction members, on the flip side the upcoming ur and others like uvh have skills for not being flagshipsas for augments they can vary but for CAs they are overal simple, the only worth while one at the moment is the great sword one, do not bother with the lance at all, as for what rarity, I would say best option is to save up to craft purple ones, keep in mind these are nice bonuses to have but not critical in any way, on the subject of the gold augments keep this in mind, they are exclusive to one ship, for example if you want to craft Belfasts augment it will only be equipable by belfast, if you want to craft Eugens augment it can only be used by Eugen, etcI hope that does help you, game can be a bit overwhelming but when you get a grasp of it it does become nice and simple, good luck by the way
>>993454oh and a few other points I want to make regarding some of the other ships you currently have>Prinz Eugenas stated before she is a decent early game tank, however as of now she isn't that great of a damage dealer so you will eventually want to replace her, a good early to mid game option after you unlock pr ships is Roon>shouhouwhile a decent healer, I do recommend you go to the medal shop and get unicorn and eventually swap the two, especially since unicorns retrofit upgrades her healing skill to give your backline some heals along with giving her a pre loaded air strike, for healers in general you want them in your mob fleet>Trento metacan't say much for her but she is decent enough for now, though you certainly will have plenty of options as you go that are better
>>993463Roon is from that research thing in the lab right? Should i target farm nazi girls to open up her research and prioritise her? At the moment the only one i have the required ships for is st louis but i havnt got far with her yet (still on first task)My current front lines are:1. Starter lolinazi - trento meta - indianapolis2. Norfolk - eugen - leanderI was going to swap leander for helana when i level her but for line 2 that doesnt really leave a good dps right? I also have ajax to use as a dps since all her skills are red. Line 2 i want to use with shouhou / unicorn as the mob clearI have Shropshire Chicago Portland unlocked as well which all seem good
>>993461>>993476Forgot to add i have been trading up the gear kits to purple so i have proper guns and stuff for the two main fleets>>993440I just want to know what i am doing instead of clicking shit randomly lol
>>993476retrofit Portland lasted me about a year b4 she was replaced. Roon is a ok tank, muse roon is better. You can buy a Prinz Eugen with metals as a comparable tank option for much much less effort. the best P1 research ship is HMS Monarch for a noobie as she has a great set of tits, stats, and barrage. you don't get a barrage bb early so she's is the best welfare option.
Status report Shikikans, how goes your cube building? Took me 180 cubes to get Musashi.
>>993937this time only around 140 cubes to get all the pool only ships, much better when compared to last event
>236 clubes goneI hate Oklahoma and Nevada so goddamn much...Fuck You Musashi, I will marry your sister now.
>>993937Just took 40 or so to get everyone other than Sakawa so far.
>>993937first 10 for the UR and 60 total for all 3 of the good ones.
Sakawa seems pretty good
>>995960thats usually the case with most SSRs with any of the UR events, while not meta defining they usually come with some nice gimmick to make it somewhat worth rolling for them beyond collection
If i limit break arizona for +1 main gun does that mean her ability has two chances to proc?
>>996032I think +1 main gun means it fires an extra shot during her firing sequence, so based off the wording I don't think so since it probably considers the entire salvo as the one shot
>>996041So best option is to equip the main gun with the best firing time and equip the autoloader and rammer for better RLD?
>>996042from the locks of it yes, best gun seems to be the proto double 406mm for HE (aka FDGs gun)
Anyone know a good way to buy gems from JP AL? Google play store blocked baka gaijin money.
>>996257Well I tried to create "Japanese" Google account it showed me JP ads, allowed me to download JP AL no problem... but I wasn't able to actually buy anything. Maybe I did something wrong
>>996257>>996443Okay I figured it out, this is how I did it.1. I use Knox to play AL, so downloaded Bluestacks and redownloaded jp AL.2. Made a new google account on my shitty phone3. Downloaded a free japanese vpn4. Added my debit card info on the playstore while the vpn is on. (vpn wasn't working on bluestacks so used my phone) be sure the apps are japanese5. My new google account appeared as japanese without vpn, all ads/apps were in jp6.Was able to make yen purchases in AL with bluestacks but my card didn't go through, so I switched to paypal during the payment confirmation in game without an issue7. Can make purchases in Knox as well, as long as you remove your gaijin google account. (no vpn)This shit ended up being so convoluted and tedious, it could've easily been trimmed down to:1.removing your old google account2. making a new account3. adding your card to your new account on google play store while a jp vpn is running ( search online for a random jp postal code during your card confirmation)
Are there any traps in this game? Need to know before i give my promise ring to a w*man
>>996906(You) are the trap
>>996906there are bote husbands (female)
>>993463>get unicornI did and fuck she is great
>>996963just wait until you unlock her retro, only other healing ship that can compete is persues
>>996976I did a excersize against vestial and akashi, front line was all the upgrade ships and i ran out of time before killing them all, rigged as
>>997027Roon is very weak against hugs
>>996906Rest assured, they're all shipgirls.
Just 55 more bros, I'm gonna make it... right?
>>998525if you do your dailies and get lucky with cube commissions, maybe
>>985509>Tfw Bonglander but not a Royalist>Tfw keep getting QE from sortiesThis is a sign I need to keep the royal bloodline going, isn't it?I hope my loins are up to the task.
>>1000291she's a precious girl and i keep waiting for a skin where she isn't crying anymore.on a side note, i'm glad the thread survived the raid.
/vmg/ max page was reduced so remember to be more active than before
>>1000321But I'm boring and shy and so absorbed in the game art and literature that sometimes I forget to post for days at a time. One of the reasons I like it here so much is because it's so slow. That sucks.
>>1000302>>1000352at least it was a quick raid, jannies here actually seem to somewhat give a shit, on a side note will the kaga party dress and Saint Louis chinese looking dress be available with the next skin patch, they are the last set of my original wives I need to get skins for
>>1000377think so either that or with the race queen ones
>>1000403works for me in either case, also hopefully one of those updates has the gear lab update
New goth chick cute!>6k oil gone in 2 daysWhat the fuck, am i only allowed to play with 1 stars or something
>>1000491for one set of maps its probably better to just have one star, to bad my autism demands all sets be three star, with the exception of archive maps since there is no point
Alright USKK's (and friends), US server maintenance starts in about an hour. 6-8 hour downtime + tip. Get ready.
>>998525Just 35 Five more bros, I'm gonna make it!... But, do they hand her like a medal exchange or I need more than the 200 they're asking?
>>1002078when you reach 200 you can click the collect option and you will get her
your sensei is here
>>1005797that isn't ranger
>hunter meta and future elite metas will now only consume two skill books >have their skill exp requirements lowered>and get more missions to fill up said expnice
>>1007154Nice, I really hate how long it takes to train META skills.
>almost 400 clubes to get Musashi>just 12 pulls moreI... I don't feel proud of it
Finally got her, one pull from the freebie one.Now I'm at 199 and don't know if I finish the 200 or not
>>1007567might as well for the extra copy to use for mlb purposes
>>993937Needed to hit the pity timer. Now the road to recovery,..
Any datamines on Hunter META?
>>1004268>filenamewhat is your real point
>>1008063so far I have seen a few animations of her so some sort of datamine is out there>>1008164probably was hoping to bait like he does in /alg/ probably best to ignore and report him
So has Arizona gotten a retrofit yet?
>>1008331no but she got a unique gear now
>>1008349Is that good?
>>1008361unqie gears for a ship don't make them meta but in a good amount of cases do offer better performance, in Arizonas case it does lower her damage but improves her healing capacity
Musashi, Nagato and Shinano are a good Team though Percy and Unicorn are still on top.
>>1008499>Percy and Unicorn are still on topI rather them being on bottom while I pronebone them
I just hope she was worthy
>>1009450a fully dev Hak is definatly worth it, especially when paired with Shinano
>>1009450Congrads on your DORK
>>1009738Thanks, now its Iron Mommy turn and then maybe Not-Eugene
happy birthday to enty
>>1011044Happy birthday.Is liking enty a basic bitch opinion? Cause I love her a lot. No-nonsense soldier that's actually kind of dorky on downtime does something for me.
>>1011266even if she was why should you care since Enty is a nice girl
>>1011044Yes, but what does it matter? I oathed her and Belfast, and while Belfast is boring I always use her.

Yeah, I'm going to chill in here.
What is the best fleet for an armpitchad? Shipgirls with premium armpit skins can be included in this fleet
>>1013490It really depends on how you want to balance armpits versus gameplay and what gameplay goals you have.>maid AvP/bunny Ticonderoga/any skin CentaurA very solid anti-light armor CV backline when equipped with rocket fighters (the prototype Bf 109G), pretty good in general too.Then for support and AA you can add:>Helena>Helena META>bunny San Francisco>San Diego>cheerleader RenoFor the main tank you actually have a lot of options:>Kronshtadt>swimsuit Cheshire>bunny San Francisco>Prinz Heinrich>casual TallinnAll range from good to great and fit into any fleet (for Heinrich it's beneficial to have 1 other IB bote in the same fleet).Anti-heavy/medium armor boss Bong BB fleet:>party dress Monarch/maid Howe/race queen Duke of Yorkand Helena/swimsuit Swiftsure or Dido or swimsuit Cheshire/swimsuit Cheshire or another aforementioned main tank.Joint BB (Bong&Burger) fleet:>party dress Georgia and/or Monarch (boss fleet) or Alabama and/or Washington (mob fleet)/maid Howe and/or race queen Duke of York/swimsuit Prince of Wales>swimsuit Swiftsure and/or Black Prince (default/swimsuit/spring dress)and 1-2-3 out of the aforementioned supports and tanks.Pasta fleet:>Vittorio Veneto (swimsuit, but it doesn't really show her armpits)/Roma/casual Littorio or swimsuit Aquila >any skin Duca degli Abruzzi/any skin Giuseppe Garibaldiplus one of the aforementioned tanks or use Giuseppe as a tank and add dancer Bolzano or Trieste.Burger submarine fleet:>Albacore/party dress Cavalla/Nautilus or Bluegill
>>1013258I wassted 400 clubes but yes, she's fully limit break too
>>1013579>madman actually made a pit compbased
>>1013581I wasted so many cubes on musashi i wasnt as satisfied anymore when i finally got her
>>1013874Same, at got her at the 199 pull just one before the pity pull, I mean, I have two thanks to that but it judt doesn't feel right.Time to heal and save as many clubes as I can tho, kronshtadt's rerun might happen next year
>>1013490>>1013579Somehow completely forgot about bunny NJ.She can carry any comp, just make sure the frontline is tanky enough for the content you're doing.

>>1014085>ppl even off 4chan not just /alg/ (which is just one faggot there) complaining about not enough lewdnessAs much as i can see the expressions are going all in on the gag context at the expense of lewd potential, iunno what to make of above
>>1014177I honestly think most complaing about not enough lewd have their brains fried by this point
>>1014177>ppl even off 4chan not just /alg/Where
new player here looking for some tips on what to work on for progression because i have no idea wtf to focus on currently. i lvled up some boats with xp packs and i cleared world 6 with musashi carrying me hard. 1. if there's any boats to prioritize leveling and/or team comp tips you can think of off the top of your head from pic related that would be appreciated. i've kinda just been winging it with who i've been lvling for the most part. hunter meta is there too but isn't shown here because of the filters. 2. not sure where to dump my oil. i've been slow leveling boats while farming for the fox tiddies on 3-4 but i feel like i should be farming nodes like 4-2 or 6-3 for the gear instead?3. i know it's a ways away for me but guides i've looked at say to work on monarch/roon for your first pr boat(s). is this still the case?
>>1014198Kinda looks like she's drawn by the Eldridge, Ping and Ning, Grozny, et al artist.
>>1014200first thing I would recommend is probably retiring most of your dupes especially the ones you no longer need for mlb, but as for which ones to focus on I will say your current fleet is pretty good, obviously work on Enty and Nagato, for others to focus on>Alabama is a pretty nice pre barrage ship for mob fleets>Ark and Centaur have nice slow abiliteis making them good for bosses>Tosa can help Nagato with Sakura fleet boosting so she can be a long term project>definatly improve U-47 you will want to start on your sub fleet set up as you go along>cleve can certainly be a decent AA option if you still lack Sandy as for which areas to farm you probably want to focus on getting to world nine since it has oil cap and clear rewards, but there are a few spots to farm before those mostly for certain ships, the most notable one is Yuudachi in 6-4 especially if you managed to complete her mini game for her retro item
>>1014192Example from booruhttps://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/5728864#comment_2261738
>>1014200Nagato, Musashi and Tosa make for a pretty great general-use IJN BB backline. Unicorn is a good healer, EX-tier after you retrofit her. Use her in mob fleets.Retrofitted Portland is a pretty good tank for the early to mid game.You can refer to https://slaimuda.github.io/ectl/#/home for brief bote analysis and gear loadouts (hover over gear icons to read info on why and when to use a particular piece of gear on a specific bote).Take the tier list itself with a grain of salt, you should be looking on botes in terms of their roles and consider the overall fleet composition when you make a comp. There are also inconsistencies and deliberately retarded decisions (Ark Royal retro is easily T0/T0+, both her slow debuff utility and damage are amazing, but supposedly Reddit/Discord don't like that she's a "pedophile").You probably should rush to W11 for them gold gainz, while working on leveling your botes at the same time.https://slaimuda.github.io/ectl/#/newbguideFor PR, see who you like the most and botes of which roles you lack the most (Roon if you need a good tank, Monarch if you need a good anti-heavy armor BB), and who you have unlocked. At this point if you can develop Anchorage or Cheshire it's better to work on them before Roon, unless you like Roon more.
>>1014219I don't think they complained about not enough lewdness, they imagined she will get some badass shit and then got disappointed.And I always find Z23 fags to be really obnoxious so whatever.
>>1014204>>1014220ty frens this definitely helps narrow things down a bit. i had been looking at the github from before but somehow had no idea you could click on the fucking icons to see the recommended gear options for the ships so that's great to know.
>>1014201I want....i want to...
>>1014234Hug, protect and nurture her?Yeah, me too.
>>1013579>>1013950You are doing God’s work Anon and I applaud you for your refined taste, much obliged.

>>1017806Shoot, I wasted my gems in Shinano.
I started recently how do I get more subs?
>>1018066Special construction and as drops from event maps sometimes. Wishing well events. You shouldn't worry about subs if you're just starting out though. Build up your cube stash first.
>>1018090It feels like ass to have only one sub on sub missions.
>>1018096Some of the events in the war archive might have a few as drops you could farm for, not sure though. Check the wiki.
>>1018066>>1018096there should be another sub in the guild shop called Dace so you should get her, as the other anon stated some maps do drop a sub, mostly the german ones so check the wiki to see if they do and which level, and whenever it happens the next German rerun will have a sub in its event shop, there is also Albacore in the merit shop and Cav in Balits archived event which has a safety net on D3 but both will required a good amount of grinding
>>1017806actually after checking EN patch notes its not Auora getting the unique gear but Avora
>>994617Why do so many people hate Bache when she is one of the only few ships that care about you at 0 affection?
>>99393736 pulls to get everyone on the banner. I always save cubes for UR events.The Elites from the past three banners before this is what was giving me the toughest time. 100+ for each Elite.
How good is Rikka with all her stuff? Since she doesn't even need weapons
>>1019708she is pretty great with all of her stuff especially for hard modes were she acts as a stat stick
>>1019712Better than Bel? San Diego, Shimakaze and Ayanami are my strongest vanguard.
>>1019731yeah she is better than Bel, granted not saying much since Bel has been sadly powercrept, but Rikka herself is pretty much considered among the best CLs when equipped with her unique items
>>1019744Based, thanks, what about the DoA girls? I have them all so one might be useful
>>1019842from what I heard most of the fall into the alright range, nothing meta but servicable enough, I did hear Marie is the best one of the bunch but you will probably need to test it out and get a second opinion from those who used her about general usefulness
>>1019842Honoka is one of the best backliners for 1-1 fleets even if the advantage of using that kind of fleet is almost extinct thanks to the oil cost limit feature.
>>1020052>did the 3-4 like 50 times in total>still can get her or KagaFuck this shit, were they taken down for the global version too?

turns out the next event won't be a rerun but a new one with Janus as the first new ship revealed>https://twitter.com/azurlane_staff/status/1583005610903502848?t=19
>>1025183>JanusNeat, wonder if she will be a healer like Jarvis
Guess boatfu (she appeared in the game this year)
>>1025459I doubt it though she will probably be a decent support ship>>1025585Volga
>>1024635She did nothing wrong, fuck Eagle Cunts, Sakura Whores and Royal Bitches>>1025585Da Vinci?
>>1025183Janus? more like Janal
>https://twitter.com/azurlane_staff/status/1583291253529378816not really sure what the ships actual name is since the TL is confusing
>>1026141Looks like "Royal Fortune" to me. Which according to some searching was the name of several age of sail pirate ships captained by Bartholomew Roberts. He would commandeer a ship, abandon it if necessary, then commandeer another ship, renaming each one Royal Fortune. Part of a new faction, Tempesta which seem like they're going to all be pirate ships.
>>1026141Royal Fortune, ship of the line.New faction, Tempesta (pirates?).https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bartholomew_Roberts
>>1026150>>1026154>new pirate faction of giga grannyshuh neat, though I do wonder if its just going to be regulated to halloween things since new event might just be a ghost ship plot now that I think about it
>>1026154>>1026160>We got this before we even get Ironclad ships.
>>1026154>tender SKK tentacle timehotwe havent had a new crazy in a while
>>1026154Unique equipment time? Or are we going to mount WW2 batteries on a wooden ship from the age of sail kekAlso her equip slots for that matter, 3 guns of different sizes maybe?
>>1026346the SMS do have the options of either AA or another gun so it is possible, not sure about unique gear but it would be neat
>>1026154>sailing shipI'm glad they did that, now stuff like pic related can become a reality too.
>>1026502Based elf lover
Are there any items to increase exp? At this rate it will take a month to get the 3 millions for Agir
>>1026857Not yet and even then there's no point on rushing it because you will need dev levels, Plymouth is the only DR that sees instant use after completion.
>>1026857do you mean the 3 million exp cap for agir after she reaches level 125 or the exp grind requirments to get her, because either way you can probably use logistics plans to speed up the process provided you make sure your botes are well rested when using them
>>1027043The later.>use logistics plans to speed up the process provided you make sure your botes are well rested when using themHow do I do that? First time I heard that despite playing for more than a year
>>1027174logistics plans are those things that double everything from a sorties ranging from fuel cost, moral drain, affection gain, rewards, and exp, you should probably be able to see them and the amount you have in the bottom right hand corner
>>1027357Me on the bottom left with red bow.

>>1029486Half of them are just voice files due to how many characters this game has now.

>https://twitter.com/AzurLane_EN/status/1584545246435745797looks like it will be another raid event
>>1029681i actually didn't download the voice pack, im gonna assume its all the update files that dont get deleted.
>>1030213Pretty much, if you reinstall it should shave off a few gigs.
>>1027545>emerald eyes and cresthmmmmProbably just dredged up art from the vault except the one chosen happened to have ship specific design cues
kinda new playeris it worth pulling right now? i'm still figuring out the UI, so I don't know if there's some kind of banner right now or not
>>1030748no banner at the moment so for now just stick to one light roll a day, however when a event does happen (one of which will be within a few days) is when you start rolling or at least as much as you can, good luck
>>1030748No event at the moment so only 1 daily build from the light pool. There will be an event after the next maintenance in a few days. That's when you might want to pull more.Be warned though that there will be a collab event coming probably next month and a UR event at the end of the year. Collab events don't get reruns so it's your only chance to get the characters if you really want them, UR has a pity at 200 pulls so you need at least 400 cubes for a guaranteed UR. If you want to save up a bit for these you can do 3 daily pulls from the upcoming event banner.
>>1030769>>1030772Thank you both!
literally none of the redemption codes work
>>1030783which redemption codes
>>1030786I tried a few websites, this is the first one that comes up. None of these codes seemed to work.https://joingames.net/azur-lane-codes/
>>1030788a decent amount of codes will either be exclusive to specific regions (I know the JP server had a treasure hunt exclusive to them involving codes) or for products that you need to purchase (terribles swimsuit skin) and some of said products codes have expired (last I checked codes for skins from the bluerays of both animes have expired by this point) so that might be why
>>1030792I've been playing for years and didn't know these codes existed. Sure wish i paid more attention, oh well
>>1030795at least you know for the future, I do know from time to time the JP twitter will state when a free code hunt might happen so if you are a JP player might be worth checking in every once in a while
What other gacha do you guys play in addition?
>>1030826I only play AL, the only other gotcha that somewhat peaks my interests is GFL but not enough to divide my attention between it and Azur Lane
>>1030829>sara is such a midget she is forced to be at the equivalent of the kids tablereminds me of that article talking about how some waitress confused a midget as a kid and gave him crayons
>>1030826None, mobile apps are inherently a side activity thing to me, doesn't make sense to have more than one. So I play this to roll for cute pngs, while doing other productive things like playing actual vidya, cooking, uni work etc.
>>1030792I didn't know about these but just googled a bit and found these for JP:AZGOSHUNENFIFTHANNIVNLMRBVDKFTBDAIYTWDPDGot a nice few things out of them, like 500 cogchips, 5 gold plates of each kind and 5 PR5 DR prints.
JP patch notes>https://azurlane.jp/news-item.html?i=1274we should be able to farm for a new item during the raid called sea furry, only time will tell if its decent, another thing to note is how fortune will work, from what has been stated>she will work similiar to a sub in the fact you have to call her in and can do map attacks similiar to a sub>she will have her own unique gear including auxes so probably expect to beat shit with cannonballs >she won't be in the pool but will be acquired through missions along with the gear>didn't see this in the notes but from what somebody else stated she might not have an oxy stat so potentially she can stay in the battle for far longer, remains to be seen if true so take that part with some saltoverall seems neat but I doubt she will affect anything unless her skills are really good, there are also a few other minor things such as a new character story, a rerun of a tiny event for a free skin, and a retrun function getting removed temporarily so they can implament the new version of it in the future
and now the leaks>https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vQryEXoz-XEylRjyeidNpcrHuDOjnhvwlvk07716-PFjcUq6odSUf95sfF7_XI6XS5I7lg0KEFfaS0Q/pubhtml#
About an hour till US server maintenance. Make sure you're ready.
It only took 46 cubes but I got the three
>>1035158took me around 140 but I got them all plus another nip sub so it was worth it
>>1035192>subSpeaking of, where do I get them good weapons?
>>1035240assuming you want a top tier wolf pack formation, the easiest ones will be the auxes such as the snorkel and pressure resistant hull which can be found in the core shop, the rainbow dildo can also have a use for subs in the flag position but the previously mentioned are usually the most recommended, for the gun just slap on the gold nip dd gun which you can farm for, as for the torps themselves the best ones are bidders which alongside needing OpSi resources, also requires bps for the mark 8 bong torp which can only be gotten through weekly sub missions or getting lucky in SoS sorties which will likely take a while, it is worth it but the grind will be slow, second best torp after that will be the G7 last I checked which can be crafted in the gear lab as well, if you can't craft that then just use whatever gold torps you can get, hope this helps you

>Azur Lane is 5 years old and has another 5 more years left of life, probably moreI don't see Azur Lane dying so soon. The game are well consolidated and have a faithful fanbase, also a dev team that seems to like what they created.Even if the game really dies, I dont believe that Yostar will let the franchise die so easy.
>>1042441please gods of gacha, I only have 310 cubes, have mercy on me.
>>1042825Just skip for Ryza, now that won't come back ever
Friendly reminder for (most) US commanders and others who live in a practicing daylight savings time domain; your daily reset is now one (1) hour earlier than it was before starting today. Don't get tripped up!
>>1042823AL was Yostar's gateway to success, they would want to keep it alive as long as possible, even if they have to suck its corpse dry, the same way Cygames has been treating GBF. And for better or worse, it was also the beginning of the massive CN mobage invasion into JP market.
>>1043961Reset on the hour.
>>1042441Its pic related, right? Already got them all
>>1044675yep those are the ones getting a rerun, so you should be good
>>1042441>>1044675Also to add we're getting another skill book speed up event to go with it
>>1045046is this jp only or will it happen for all servers
>>1045377Every other time it was for all servers. Don't see why this time would be different.
looks like we will also be getting two more file missions in the upcoming rerun
>>1045914>looks like we will also be getting two more file missionsfour-ish that all break down into more files and lore bits

>https://twitter.com/azurlane_staff/status/1591007838092009479stream for the ryza event has been scheduled
Is this game still worth starting?
>>1047582Yeah, if you want a nice little collection side-game. There's an event rerun on right now and those give out lots of free rolls, plus it gives you a bit of time to save up for the actual new event in a few weeks.
>>1047582Yes. Besides collaboration boatfus you can get everyone eventually and gacha itself is pretty much free
>https://twitter.com/AzurLane_EN/status/1592155388979269633second muse event is beign archived for EN
Is Belfat's Burn Order good?
>>1049175belfast herself has been to powercrept to be considered top tier in terms of gameplay, but her burn order does make her decent against light armor foes so you might as well make sure she has the best possible HE cl gun, that and when you equip her aug it gives her an eva boost which helps a bit with being able to survive

https://weibo.com/5770760941/Mf0PZz0DwFew ,ore boats are being moved out of the perma pool and into various in-game shops. Less bloat, better pulls, easier to get boats for newfriends and collectionlets.
chink patch notes are here>https://www.bilibili.com/read/cv19794626?spm_id_from=333.999.list.card_article.clickalong with what the other guy stated about some botes being moved to shops, JP and CN will be getting berms and hardys events archived (for EN will be second muse event), blucher will be getting a secretary story, possibly more unique augs but its hard to tell due to the translations so wait for JP patch notes to confirm, and finally the reworked missions for returning players will be implamented after this patch
>>1049475and here is the JP version>https://www.azurlane.jp/news-item.html?i=1276can say with 100% clarity two more unique augs will be added, one of which is for Taihou

>>981685all fucking night!!!!
couldn't get Tahou-u and now I'm poor :(
>>1052388she is in the special pool forever now so just save up your cubes and either hope you get lucky with events that use said pool, or just wait for wishing well and try again

>2D Bomberman clone>Diagonal movement How do you fuck up this hard holy shit
>>1057638It would be nice if they didn't position the movement controls above the default movement position for the rest of the game. Makes it ass to play for emulators.
