This has already happened in your fleet right?
If you have not voted for your ringed ships, do it now. So far, it's surprisingly varied for first time marriages but the following marriages are more of a race between 5-4 fleets and statsfags.
> ! This question requires an answer.
>* 4. Were the subsequent marriages based on love or stats?
Please tell me it was worth it, I was bored.
What do I do now?
Don't worry too much. Soon repair time will be a non-issue, as you'll be bucketing anyone that gets damaged to chuuha or lower.
I hope you're already spamming expedition 2, your aim should be to get all 4 fleets as soon as possible for expeditions.
Once you get four fleets, spam ex2 all the time. Before you have four fleets it's more important to have fuel and ammo for sorties.
You'll deal with ammo being higher than fuel by spamming ex 38 when you finally unlock it. For now sparkle ex21 or if you have a lot of time, ex5.
And guys with battleships have it even worse.
Try to unlock them, 21 is second best expedition after ex5 while TEs will fix your steel problems forever.
Tokyo Express is no joke. Expedition 37 and 38 will have you drowning in the stuff. To the point where I do my Maruyu LSCs with min everything and max steel to keep myself from 300k. Tanaka needs to let us exchange one resource into another already. Give us some alchemy fairies.
Or you could not be an idiot and send out ex5 and ex21 instead.
That's because you can use whatever you want as long as it doesn't have CAs.
Think by yourself, don't rely on wiki so much, their recommended comps are shit half the time.
Right now I'm simply using 6DDs.
The page for world 5 tells you how the map works.
"Having at least 2 CA(V) will always send you to node A.
Otherwise, there is a 75% chance to go to node B instead."
Looking at the enemy node list, you want to go to B, since that leads to the sub node D. So basically, use any composition of DDs or CLs (perhaps 1 CL flagship and 5 DDs), just don't have 2 CA(V)s.
>Raise the other 2 planes to max ranks.
That will automatically happen in PvP.
>Also farm more searchlights and flares.
Do you ever need more than 4 flares? LOS bullshit never allows enough night battle equipment for a while now.
Also was maxed 96式 searchlight ever tested? Not sure if that would be worth the time.
If only I didn't scrap like 8 of that 15.2cm before Akashi was implemented.
Never used more than 2 flares at one go, but you never know. The devs might release a mega flare and they'll become upgradable.
As for searchlight, I just upgrade for the firepower bonus.
Finally, ranking at 5-4 drops a shit ton of Aganos.
You know you're bored when you wait twenty minutes just to amuse yourself.
I got all my important planes to 1-5 by setting my CVL and BBV as mules, with the BBV carrying at least 1 seaplane bomber.
If you don't want 1-5, other places (eg. 1-1 sparkling) will do; it translates to maybe 24 battles.
I only started doing that quest after that update so I didn't even notice the old rates.
But during the autumn event, a screenshot of some newbie with T0 recon planes with gold diagonal bars was what alerted me to a potential change to the mechanics that could've occurred. And there was indeed a change.
>Jun'you has the highest evasion
Some things just don't make sense.
FUCK. Time to start stocking buckets.
It's her little bows on her sleeve and those thighs.
There is so many things wrong with this image.
5 buckets from basic sortie + repair + construction dailies. 3 more if you do the transport + W2boss + sub dailies.
1 additional bucket on average from Ex2 per hour you're able to run it. Add an extra 0.6 bucket per hour from Ex4 if you're desperate enough to run it.
Multiply by 30 and that's how many buckets you will have next month.
This is his last Kasumi illustration. Will you believe?
I wish there was a Kancolle VN or something. Some of their stories and PTSD would be really good in the right hands.
Could it be that Akebono secretly loves her shitty admiral?
Why did we stop Japan from killing all the chinks? Just imagine what a great world it would be.
Protect everyone, at all costs.
She's going to be the worst DD in the end isn't she?
>weaker than flatgumo
When did you finally realize that ABKM-sama is best girl /jp/?
Only DD Hime deserves salvation. Everyone else might as well be rape bait.
Ok back to armoured CVs.
Can't spell Libeccio without ecci.
This is the screen, I have spare decks too.
There's a lvl req to swap?
For final kill, move Iwamoto to Kaga's big slot.
You can boost AS a bit by using Reppuu instead of T21 Skilled. I feel like you could get away with 385-390 AS before final kill so maybe it isn't necessary. If you have Taihou and want to use her instead (she's probably slightly better choice than Kaga), you'll have to drop one bomber, preferably from Shoukaku as she has the most firepower.
Make sure you finish all of your composition quests first because future quests might be locked behind the ones you do not do. Once you do, scrap everyone without a kai 2 except obvious important ones and Yuugumo class.
Is it true that one Suzuya/Kumano manga stopped being about them? I mean there hasn't been a translated chapter in a long time, but that still sounds disappointing as I read what was available on a whim and it was enjoyable enough.
Hm, pointless as hell so far. They just tank every first node shot and the damecon is used up on the second. I've got 3 clears now with Kongou searchlight flag, I'll stick with that.
I guess you have worse luck than I did. I used sparkled Yukikaze and she always survived the first node for me.
Yeah, yeah I know. Underleveled Mizuho. She's just along for routing. I fully expect her to get fucked at the boss node. I had Katori for carrying night scout/searchlight (and tanking in night battle), but she didn't seem to have enough night battle power, so I switched her for another DD.
Just use Jintsuu as flag instead of having ABKM. I had her take out BB maybe 3-4 times during the day and the DD Hime once during day. Far more useful than one half assed opening torp
You don't need cut-in either. Yukikaze at chuuha can reliably kill anything during night with DA. Your gear sucks too so I don't really see why you're rushing to clear the map
Because I only have one OTO. Roma has evaded me every event so far, and Littorio is last in line for blueprints.
I'm rushing to get back to searching for Unryuu. Also KC3 doesn't show it in the fleet viewer, but all the 12.7 guns are maxed except for Poi who has 12.7B.
Get rid of CIs, get better radars, ABKM should be using x2 OTO or x2 no.2, no NB equips. At most, only Yukikaze should be using a CI setup in case things go south, but you want DAs and daytime FP for the boss node.
>I'm rushing to get back to searching for Unryuu.
The drop rate is horrendous. Wait for the event. Unryuu, and most likely Amagi as well will be a drop. Just stockpile some baux since it'll probably be a CV hime map with Tsu
>I'm rushing to get back to searching for Unryuu
Don't do it anon, the drop rate is abysmal. And SCAMP and Reppuu 601 aren't good anymore. Actually, SCAMP was never good, mostly since there's almost no occasion to use it.
Reppuu 601's better than what I'm working with right now, but for now, I'll give up on trying to get Unryuu. That composition quest will continue sitting at the top of my list taunting me.
4 out of 4 tries again, but no Akashi or Tengakaze.
Why take north when you can just steamroll south with basically no resource cost? The chance for Akashi or Maruyu isn't worth it, especially when you compare 3-5 to event maps.
Why would you need to refresh? You're far more more likely to retreat from B node than A node.
I don't know, 3-5 is easy enough for me to do it 5 times a week saving me a lot of headache and resources not doing 3-3. Looking at the damage you took you'll be spending around 1k steel and over 500 fuel on repairs alone, not to mention all the fighters shot down. I'd rather spend that on development
>this fucking radar
This recipe is pretty good. 2 within 8 crafts.
If you haven't realized, being a TTK is a job. You deserve to get shitty reward if you're being a lazy shit. You sound like a fat neckbeard who whines at home because you got no mountain dew and doritos all the time.
Some people just want to play the game passively. It's not really fun to do Orel every day.
I'm an Admiral. Normally I get PVP in the HQ 102-107 range.
If I don't sortie I get matched with HQ 80 trash.
>It's not really fun to do Orel every day.
No one forces you to do Orel, cretin.
>If I don't sortie I get matched with HQ 80 trash.
So you're in adequate company.
I'm just saying you're fucking annoying and should stop nitpicking all the time. Be proud because I don't care anymore about usage of CVB even though I was against it initially. Now I just want you to stop posting because you're same tier as small c guy and /kcg/fag.
Your argument about Shinano has zero worth because we have no idea if she gets introduced at all, when could it possibly happen and what role would she have.
As someone who has no idea what the hell you mean by look in the api, yes, yes it is. I literally know nothing about looking up code in flash objects or whatever the hell you mean.
Idk man, I get worse pvps as an admiral. Vice admiral seems to be the perfect spot for good pvps, anything higher gets me fleets that would make me level things I don't need leveled.
>play the game passively
Then don't complain about getting subpar PvP. Every ounce of effort counts in this game; don't expect to get anything and everything by half-assing your way through.
I replied to person talking about her.
Are you unable to comprehend that people tend to remember what was said more than two minutes before?
And don't be such a hypocrite because you were the first one to accuse two people of being one person.
> Some people want to play game passively
> Proceeds to complain about the most passive sortie
> Wah wah why won't they give me everything without having to put in any time or effort??
Farmville might be more up your alley.
Speaking of her, how feasible is it to just all out farm 2-5 for her? Is she a frequent drop? Been playing for 9 months and still don't have her. That comp quest with her just haunts me. At this point I might just be better off waiting for the event though.
I wouldn't recommend farming all out for her, since I got 2 whales from clearing 2-5 normally. It's really all up to RNG though.
Just fool the desire sensor when you try to clear 2-5 every month. Or just pray she drops on event.
CVB api debunked.
Oops, missed a step:

It is going to be an easy event. Remember they were supposed to implement the android port and they will need to dumb down the difficulty to cater to the android market.

>Currently, we are preparing a second remodel for the Asashio-class Destroyer who was active in several battles, was the flagship for Admiral Kumura in "Operation Rei", and escorted Yamato to her final battle. It will be implemented this month. Also, at the beginning of next month, Winter Event 2016: Limited Time Area will start.
>The next server maintenance and update will be on the 19th of January, Tuesday. Alongside this maintenance, a certain Asashio-class Destroyer will be getting a new remodel, the furniture shop will be updated. The ongoing "Haregi CG" will last till the next maintenance.
Unless otherwise, follow this scaling:
(Year number - 2010 + seasonal modifier)
where seasonal modifier = +2 if summer, +1 if spring, and ±0 otherwise. It's held true since spring 2014.
Winter will probably have 6 maps.
Yeah, you have to push resources through a specific route and win at the boss. A rank gives you more than B, and S gives more than A. You have to gimp the fuck out of your equipment though, because the only way to get the resource gauge down is to equip drums, daihatsus, and FastSuck drums. Bosses are crazy hard, because 'LEL you just need a B ranks to clear it LEL!' but as I said, drops still only come from S drops except for on E-5. You also may have to do a regular clear after the TP gauge is gone.
The only TP map that had a hard boss was E-3 and that was only at the start before people figured out how much AS you really needed. On the first few days people were putting drums on the escort fleet for fuck's sake.
No, you go through a transport node, pick up resources, then you have to beat the boss node to keep those resources. You didn't even need to kill the boss like usual, just get an A. A B wouldn't let you keep the resources. Those resources are then subtracted from the map gauge. In the case of E-5, once you depleted the transport gauge you got a second normal gauge in which you definitely had to kill the boss like in a normal event.
Got it, sounds like a chore for map clearing.
Correct me if I'm missing something, but can't you just equip your best loadout if you're just farming for S-ranks before/after clearing? I don't really see the problem with it if that's the case.
CL Hime already exists.
