dude hahahah i was waiting for this XDDD
The new memetheory is that both 20.3 (3) and normal 20.3 give some placebo accuracy during yasen.
Posting these Russian cocks doesn't get proof tho, so I assume is an urban legend.
You do more than 200 fights against the same enemy with each setup. It takes shitload of time. Nips somehow manage it by involving multiple people but even then it's very hard because everyone has to have exact same eq and level 99 ships.
You would have to test 2x 20.3 (3), 20.3 (3) + 20.3 (2) and 2x 20.3 (2) for the results to mean anything.
The accuracy test happened some time ago but it isn't super old. It was done somewhere after Fall event. I know that SKC doesn't give yasen bonus to Japanese CAs. Prinz wasn't tested iirc. I'm not sure if (2) was tested at all, don't have the link and nobody provided it when we were talking about it recently.
It's hard to guess if Prinz has bonus from SKC - only Italians get bonus accuracy from 381mm but on the other hand Bismarck gets the exact same bonus as other fBBs from 35.6cm and 38cm.
What point? PVP is free exp regardless of the enemy comp and equips. Worst-case scenario, you have a CLT babysit if you need to babysit Taigei or Hayasui or some shit.
Or are you saying you hacked into the servers and can confirm that Kongou's shelling rolls were only a few accuracy points off from being hits?
FBB fit guns with AP has never caused me problems with killing, so why would I bother even trying? Likewise, I doubt that TTK is having much trouble dipping a few points below max accuracy on shitty abyssal trash. Neither really matters outside of combined fleet, but I'm glad to see you're mad enough to start slinging shit.
Come to think of it, has anyone ever tested if the accuracy of a fit gun and an overweight takes the difference between the two, or if the overweight overrides?
Huh? You seem to have obsession with accusing anyone who wrote something you dislike of being mad. Most of the time it isn't the case. Please keep that in mind in the future. Your reply was dumb and I expressed my thoughts about it, there's no anger there.
By the way how is your first question in any way related to my posts? Where did I suggest you should try that? Are you incapable of making comments which make sense and have to reply to stuff only existing in your head?
Yes, it's on the wikia page with all the other tests. As common sense and millions of anecdotal evidence suggest, a difference occurs, not an override.
I just wish people would stop throwing that accusation around all the time, it's a real bother. It tends to provoke mindless insults and dumbs down the conversation considerably. It also leads to smartass comments like the one you made just now.
>the enemy team is more disadvantaged
Only because they go second and don't normally have the luxury of changing comp in response the player's. The stars debuff was removed a long time ago if that's what you're referring to.
This one is the biggest one in my opinion. Opposing Musashi will wreck your DD but it's still possible for five more opposing shots to be aimed at that DD. Meanwhile when you "sink" an opponent, your attack won't ever be aimed at that ship.
Hug and apologize for all the times you scrapped her in the past.
When your Musashi crits opposing DD for 180 damage (shown as 31), that DD is dead, won't take turn and won't be aimed at anymore. Meanwhile your DD might get slobbered by airstrike, opening torp and two Hotels but it will still scratch enemies in shelling and can tank hits in yasen.
Because they're actually at 1, not 0.being displayed as 1. Your sub can get wrecked to 1 by the very first hit of the round and can literally take 11 more hits without ever becoming an invalid target, assuming you're just tossing a solo low leveled sub just for the hell of it. Not to mention you can still attack even at 1hp, though it's still most likely going to do jack shit, on top of overkill protection.
Sub tanking BBVs is hilarious.
Some players deliberately put less than ideal equips on their PvP idle fleets to make it even easier for other players to get XP. I don't know why some people are surprised when they see weird equips on two ship only fleets. It's also PvP, bragging about winning in PvP like bragging about winning the special olympics.
On the other hand, even if he was actually using 46cm on bongos on most single fleet maps it doesn't even matter.
They should make it so that resource nodes actually resupply your ships while they are in sortie.
Then they can have maps where you have to route to those nodes to reach the boss without running out of fuel and ammo.
Fastsuck does that in theory but is useless in practice.
Man, I spent all month at 大将 and kept getting nice, single married ships for PvP. Today I dropped down to 中将 and it's all fucking hotels and armored CVs. I mean what the fuck are you even doing at 中将 with fleets like that? Because it's obviously not ranking.
I'm glad the anime happened, her kai 2 is so fucking cute.
>ranking and farming
>impossible to multitask them all
What an odd feeling of accomplishment and emptiness when you finally marry your shipfu.
>and that other thing
That's very rude.
Their "scale" is based on number maps not on difficulty. Spring was Large Scale and it was super easy except E-5 if you didn't have a good taking sub or enough Goyas to sacrifice.
Because you were wrong. Small scale doesn't have to mean 3 maps and 4 maps don't have to be medium scale.
You don't understand how "event scale" works so I corrected you.
That would be nice.
>not keeping her as Yuu
Kept getting rekt on the first node, otherwise I wouldn't have defaulted to using my unending supply of Goyas as bait.
Nigga what? Truk was medium-scale, the devs themselves advertised it as such so people were expecting another Kon. Then they got hit by double dysons and Super Nagato.
Early next month (February), KC Winter event 2016: Limited Time Area will start. This event is a relatively small scale operation. Experienced Admirals can choose the operation difficulty. Even though this is a relatively small scale operation, the hardest difficulty, A, is still a difficult operation.
"Relatively small" meaning it can be anything between 3-5 maps counting the EOs. I like how the wikiatards are hyping the last map as extremely difficulty when it only says that it'll still be hard at A mode.
Though, this winter event will be relatively smaller scale, the last mission on Hard difficulty gonna be a little harder than usual.
Just like Wintrer '15.
>Requested a paid vacation in 15th-20th of Feb
>it's just a small scale
WHAT THE FUCK. FUCK YOU, TANAKA. I still can cancel it, but what a letdown. I thought it's going to be a second-coming of BB Water Hime-level.
5pages of lv99
close to 3k bucket
What are you implying?
To autistic neets and cheaters.
Medal is a proof of clearing the event. And no, not everyone has those. Majority of people don't have Summer medal.
Anyway, we're getting sidetracked here. You're the only one who's trying to show something by comparing medals to ranking rewards, discussion wasn't about that.
What? You posted your medals and someone else mentioned ranking. I don't see any problems with my posts.
Being gensui at the beginning of the year with 5-5 cleared is pretty laughable.
>last map will be harder than usual
Guess I won't be getting this memedal.
>last map will be harder than usual
No, it won't. >>14612083
It was only that retard Shinhwalee who said it would be extremely difficulty before someone told him off for not knowing what he was talking about.
One random compass at the very start on a map that requires constant resparkling on all 24 girls and another near the end that basically forced everyone to use CVL is arguably much, much worse.
Winter and Summer were medium and large too.
I'm not sure what do you mean by flat difficulty. E5 was slightly harder than E6 and E1-4 were complete jokes during Spring while in Fall E3 was much much harder than other maps.
Rank reward is eternal.
They show up in the pvp screen.
In the history of the game so far, the only "must have" reward is Shiun imo. Even if you don't rank you can get 2x51cm.
Don't fall for the ranking trap.
That retard that made that funny as shit event preparation guide on the wikia. I figured some retards read his initial comment while looking for translation at the start and still believe that trash.
You can fix the second random compass if your first fleet had <=3 BB+CV. Most people ran Maya, 2BB, 1CV, 2CVL for last run.
Because not everyone can handle 2 fucking RNG compasses.
It's from Google Translate. Take your gay circlejerk back where it came from.
"If I throw in some generic insults nobody will realize I'm admitting to being a wikiashit trying to give my buttbuddies credit for inventing Google Translate" -You
I was really busy back then, after fruitlessly farming E3 and being cockblocked by E4 I was worried if I'll be able to finish the event. I had to take day off to do E7 and it was my only chance of doing the map withing 24 hours period.
1656 is even worse considering reset happened at 17 here.
Does anyone know when is the victory percent rounded up/down? For example, how many victories would I need to get 100% victory rate with 100 defeats and/or how many defeats would it take to go from 100% to 99% with 10k victories.
Recently I have no motivation to do World 4 chain, I even missed Bw4->10 twice. I still have 36 screws but most of the stuff left to upgrade is already at +6 so it costs quite a bit. I hope the event will give many screws.
It was supposed to be something the Abyssals got at Midway. We were supposed to get a new type of carrier from the event to compensate for it, and they told us to stockpile bauxite months in advance. Part of the reason why everyone expected Shinano. Instead we got Unryuu and the Abyssals got nothing. That, the way carriers barely had a role to play beyond being escorts, and the fact that it didn't end the 1st phase of the game like it was hinted and which we're still stuck in, are mostly why it was such a disappointment. At least one of those three things is fixed now. Still no Yamato class carrier or friendly fleets.
Looks like someone is freshly married.
All the CAs are Kai Ni'd.
This is my opinion.
New mechanic that decrease the use of resources when DDE in fleet except when they get taiha. Also like sub I hope they implement aggro stat. DDE will have high aggro stat so they also excelent as bait.
Am I retarded for using yasen in PvP? I use 1xBB, 2xCT and 3 of whatever I want to level
Any recommend a better fleet for all purposes? (I changed to all subs for the really heavy ones that have no ASW)
Yasen can make the difference between 500 exp and 1200 exp, so unless you got totally rekt, do it. You can avoid it however by bringing a CV(L) with fighters and adding heavier ships (CAs are good enough). Exp gain from CTs isn't really worth the space and diminished FP, so consider dropping them.
What? It's real simple anon. You need line ahead to clear out a boss and her BBHime, but you also need superior ASW to kill the sub. That's where a DD with superior ASW would come in. real simple.
Always yasen if it can make the difference between C and B or A and S ranks.
I use both training cruisers whenever I'm sure I can S-rank it (1 or 2 married ships, torpedo squads, sub fleets). Otherwise I replace them with something heavier.
Can someone suggest me a better 6-2 composition for the New Year quest?
I can't access warosu right now so I can't check the archives.
I need one more kill, but I just got my red planes wiped out, help.
Jewgaming != Slav devs
Jewgaming is a subclass of Slav devs, but not all Slav devs are as incompetent as Jewgaming. Incompetence isn't inherited in this case, please be more precise in the future.
I'm done, thanks.
I don't think anyone in those threads was foolish enough to use 6SS.
Most likely 5CA1CAV all DA or 4CA2CAV all DA with 1 drum on each CAV. Drums aren't really needed, success rate is similar. Use at least one CAV with Zuiun, you want the double attack.
Hmm, in your case 3CVL 1CL 2DD will be better considering you only have 3CAs. I never used BBs on 2-5 so I'm not sure about their viability there.
I agree with this, but the ship must be in top form (Kai/Kai2/Drei/A) and fully modernized (including AA) to make this valid.
Also levels add evasion, LoS and (hidden) accuracy so if you don't think those are placebo, you might want to get everyone to 155 eventually.
In the end
Thanks. I crafted a bunch of 3* planes of all types and got them to max rank so that's probably enough. I'll probably wait to get Haguro to Kai2 for better equipment before attempting it.
It's valid because using fully modernized ships with k2's has always been the underlying assumption. Beyond that the gain in placebo stats don't make a material difference in performance compared to the substantial performance boost from modernizing/remodelling.
Thus, levels don't matter. The footnote is to use modernized and kai/kai ni'd ships.
Looking really cool. Also she's actually pretty nice as an AACI/Opening Torpedo mixed platform.
Sometimes I wonder if he actually likes them or just uses them as ranking sluts.
They are fun to collect tho.
>Tone, Chikuma (sunk)
I cry. How can Tone live without Chikuma?
Just keep grinding torpedo sluts, it's too easy not to do it.
Who is the most underappreciated girl and why is it Akigumo?
Only to some point. There's no reason to have 15 Quints or ten upgraded 41cm. I think it's better to get four pieces of a kind to +1, then two of those to +4, later other two to +4 and so on, until +6 or +9 depending on the cost.
Get a twitter account and get the code from kancolle-db.
Then either use their built-in KCV fork that autosend crafting log, sanaechan or the kancolledbpost.
Well, I'm bored to death.
Wonder how they'll manage to breathe new life into it.
Must be nice getting so lucky with lsc.
I wish there was a little more backstory to the game, specifically societal and political consequences of the Abyssal appearance. All we know is that modern weapons don't work and nuking the ocean is not a good idea. Do Americans have their own shipgirl program or no because "lel girls"? I assume they do anyway because they have a lot of coastline to patrol and are too big to fall. What about landlocked nations? What about Japan's government? How extensive is the Abyssal force outside of the Pacific? Do they come from the Marianas Trench or are they some time of virus or zombie that just so happened to possess the scraps from the sea? Are they a top secret government force or are their actions publicly recorded to civilians? Do land based Abyssal units exist? How are civilians reacting to the all of this? There is a lot of potential not being taken advantage, but I think nobody thought this far ahead, let alone even think it would get as huge as it is now.
Those questions sums up most of the back story of Arpeggio of Blue Steel.
All you need to know is that Abyssals are made out of the grudges and grieves of fallen ships, friend or foe, with the nuke tests over bikini atoll being the catalyst to their existence. The ship girls? Think of them as Jedis
Tanked literally every shot. Yayoi why
This is the pool of that series. The art is meh but the good point is that it try to make everything reasonable (even though I don't agree with all of it). Such an effort to worldbuilt the game with no plot.
