Unless you >rank or pretend you like the game, there's not much to discuss.
Kasumin is 67 right now, I get the feeling we are going to need at least lvl 75, she's going to introduce something new for sure.
True, many Japanese developers produce tons of shitty code. Maybe I have too much faith in people?
>They'll just implement a quest with her, mark my words.
I hope they don't fuck up dem IDs again.
I was on my 5th sortie to 4-5, going to yasen with three sanshiki ships perfectly healthy, one at chuuha, the boss at 300hp and one other ship at taiha. I thought, "oh good, a 5 for 5 4-5 month, I really needed this."
Naturally they choked and left the boss at 45 HP with three missed shots at yasen. That was four hours and 60 buckets ago. I'm not even sure why I'm doing this.
Would Zepp be used as routing the upcoming event? I'm a little nervous since there was routing for Italian ships for some reason and I only have Ro and Zepp and a sub is not really ideal for most purposes.
What I really like is that it doesn't have the big block on the right hand side of the page, so more stuff fits. I'm just hoping the event page is not retarded like the wikia one.
Where are these banners even at during events? The Kancolle homepage? Also, this is some pretty fancy shit right here.
Regarding the new wiki, the Arsenal page is missing the T93 sonar -> T4 sonar section.
I would put it in but I don't know moon and can't browse the wikiwiki very well. I considered copying the info from wikia but information from wikia tends to be iffy.
You must be fucking kidding me. Slut got taiha'd two battles later. Is dodging Echelon/Aboob subs that hard? Is it impossible to roll chuuha sinking protection? Why is Z3 so useless? I regret spending the bucket.
5-1. Other DDs at red morale dodge much better than her with normal morale.
In past week she got taiha'd right after coming out of docks eight times. On average she's been gettting taiha'd every three battles since I decided to get her to Zwei (around lv42?) and the ratio is becoming worse with each level instead of improving, it's ridiculous.
I give up, I'll just brute force 4-3 tomorrow and be done.
Any tip for composition so that carriers don't steal MVP? I never really did 4-3 for DD training and don't trust wikia. I'm thinking of bringing Souryuu, Kitakami Kai and Ise.
Level 32 here, no rush.
I've been using this for the past two days.
You might wanna take 2 Reppu instead and one bomber if you're taking Souryuu with you so you can have AS if you get routed to node J.
I do too, fuck this girl. I try to save every image of her in unpleasant situations.
Im doing this since the event ended, literally nothing but pvp and expeditions, Im getting there, also buckets from exp2 is the biggest meme of the game.
Pantyhosebait, it worked for me tough, Nowaki a cute.
Because he was still learning back then. He got shitted on so much he spent all his time drawing ears until he reached perfection.
And steel is stairs?
Depends on its colour.
The age of the aviation battleship nears.
The best BBv.
>They said winter event is to be reigo based
They never actually said this. They only ever talked about Rei-Go in the context of Kasumi's K2.
PT Boats will be back regardless though.
ABKM was かなり高い and ended up being 75.
Actually they only used that for Souryuu, Fusou and Junyou, weird how they typed it on kana for the first time in Kasumi's case. In any case the conversion will most likely require even higher level though.
I finally got my last ship from LSC.
What do I do with my 290k resources now
Need more Leveling DDs
It is time for best CL to shine.
What's the ELoS requirement for 2-5? The wiki mentioned there is a requirement but didn't give a specific number.
Also how bad is this setup for 2-5? I don't need a lot of fighter for AS+ in south route right?
Your planes suck so you're better off with 2CA2CVL2DD or a heavier comp with BB and CVs. 3 CVL + ABKM comp relies heavily on opening so you might not get consistent results with that. If you're going with that comp however give your DDs radars to boost the LOS. You don't need night gear
Can't wait for PT boats to completely rape Yamato's ass.
Wiki isn't that updated, but much better
Wikia is bloat and makes ur pc slow, but it is usually up-to-date because of the huge community there
Check the wiki first, and if it's not there, that's the time where you will want to go to Wikia
Let me tell you, being a kuso never felt so good.
wiki is a ghost town but keeps everything as neat and concise as possible
wikia offers more timely information but it's a slow shitfest with a pretty autistic community
tl;dr wiki = quality, wikia = "quantity"/speed
I wish they'd implement a system where you could convert X resources to Y resources.
Why are people so obsessed with her?
>LITERALLY 75 firepower
Tanaka does his research for that very situation to happen, yes.
I'll use the new wiki more when they get seasonal lines on ship pages. Yes I am aware wikia is missing a bunch too (most notably the new years and cleaning lines) but it's better than nothing.
So this is the power of Ri flagship crits.
Anon, we've been going steady for months now, when are you going to take a hint?
Reminder that Tenryuu is FAT
Also Takao, Atago and Akagi
Ooyodo is boring, unless it's a map like 2-5 where you need to squeeze every last drop of LOS then I still use Yuubari whenever I can. She's the queen of the escort fleet.
High luck due to being a ラッキーガール, you should know this already.
It's enough for hard desu.
Craft for Ryuusei Kai, you need more of them for aerial support.
70-75 for K2, ~85 for K2A.
She's caring and gentle that's what. Also contains a soothing voice that makes my heart melt straight off the bat.
I don't care if she has 0 firepower or has shit stats. She's perfect and she's always the best ship to me.
Why are people so obsessed with her?
>LITERALLY weaker than Fubuki
Because she now wears the uniform of the ship that people was obsessed over.
Pudding has now passed the torch of obsessiveness to PTSD-chan. With a touch of good luck too. What a nice girl.
It's either a hit or miss for me when using those. I really don't think there is a suitable support against PTs. They just have that insane evasion in exchange for that little to no defense.
Is it worth it to try and farm 4-5 for Kiyoshimo, or are the drop rates low enough that I'd be better off stockpiling and hoping she drops in E1/E2?
>4 Fast BB 2CV is recommended for highest pass rate
That comp almost always took me to node F. It was far less frustrating and faster to just power through north route with level 30-40 CAs and CAVs.
In case of my Wolf it's perfectly justified. There were many times when I had problems with some map but when I put her in the fleet, even instead of CLT or BB, she brought me victories. I also love how she's a mature woman in base.
I think it's very strange that she's one of few girls with fighting spirit. They're warships, this trait should be more common. Her strive for victory is contagious, it fills me with optimism for upcoming battles and makes them more interesting.
Does this look like the face of mercy?
To be fair I sent in Hamakaze and Kawakaze at level 1 on the last event on hard and did alright, by the end they were both Kai'd at 31 and 41 respectively.
Last event was easy as piss though so mileage will vary this time around.
>Even though this is a relatively small scale operation, the hardest difficulty, A, is still a difficult operation.
might be mistranslation, I just copy/paste from somewhere.
here another translation from different translator.
>but the last map in hard mode will be a little harder.
I hate someone being too confident without strength.And don't seek for strength due to their pride,this is how I think about her.So I scrapped her long ago.
And I like a loyal partner who become reliable just because of believe so my favorite CA is Haguro.
I was bored so when my Shioi took 21 damage from Ro flagship diamond formation (she was 22/24 hp, 24 armor, no crit) i decided to calculate why the overkill protection didn't proc. I checked wiki and wikia but they have different ASW modifier for diamond formation, wiki show 90% and wikia 120% so i did this :
Ro flagship 55 base ASW + 7 depth charge
Formula is (2 * √(Ship ASW) + 1.5 * Equipment ASW + Type) * Bonus so
(2 * √(55) + 1.5 * 7 + 13) * 1 = 38.332
I include formation modifier so 38.332*0.9 = 34.499 for wiki and 38.332*1.2 = 45.998 for wikia.
Now Shioi effective armor range : Armor × 0.7 + Random(0 ~ Armor -1) × 0.6 so 16.8 + 0~13.8 so Shioi effective armor varies from 16.8 to 30.6
Right now you can see that wiki's modifier is wrong, even with the lowest armor roll Shioi can only take 17.699 maximum. With wikia's modifier, it varies to 29.198 ~ 15.398 so it works. Or maybe i am wrong somewhere ?
If Kasumi isn't in your fleet you won't be able to reach the boss node on hard, calling it.
They're giving us advance warning so we can at least get her to Kai.
Wikia's damage calculation is correct; wikiwiki updated the damage formula some time back. The wiki hasn't.
>If Kasumi isn't in your fleet you won't be able to reach the boss node
I doubt they'll ever do that, at worst they'll give you a 20% chance of preboss->boss like in everyones favorite 5-1 quest.
Definitely not the one who's slower than Yuubari.
Why do rankfags marry 6 subs ? For the consumption bonus ? The extra evasion is that great on them even with the hp bonus increasing the chance of no overkill protection ? For the "Hey look i am so hardcore at ranking" when you see them in PvP ?
I do north route when ranking but bauxite cost is quite high on the long term when you still need Taihou and radars. When i'm waiting for morale, i do south with 6 subs but it's a russian roulette even before the boss then i see the cost and it's so low. That's why i'm wondering if marrying them is really that good or everyone "love" them, especially rankfags.
This is why you get everything you want and then do ranking. 12-16 Type 32 surface radars and 8 kai 4 radars or Type 33 radars will set you for the rest of the game. Marrying your ranking fleet is a little iffy since you either use them like tools or like them enough to suffer with them.
That's very real possibility.
I gained resources while doing E1-E6 Hard over 16 days but that left me with little time for E7 and I had no time in weekends and some busy evenings. I should have been able to clear E7 Hard even without taking the day off but I would likely be forced to go at it until last days. I started the event with 100k/768 buckets and finished with 60k/273 buckets
How am I supposed to cope with the loss of yukata whale? After playing this game for 4 years-ish I finally fell in love with a skin. It's fucking wrong that they make better than default sprites and then take it away from us. Just throw it in a cash shop. I guarantee people would buy their shitty skins for whatever ship they want.
She's cute as hell. I wonder if any nips have her at 100 Luck.
two seaplane questions /jp/. wiki says Model 12 can't be used by unremodeled Chitose; does that mean their base form only, or does it include Chitose A? and then, when do recon seaplanes participate in dogfighting/bombing?
Because people like desdiv 6 more and she's outgunned by the other remodels, so she's left as the obscure one even with high luck.
Ease up on your implications. They're not only disliked on this board, yours is wrong.
Hatsushimo can use mixed night cut-in + AACI with Akizuki gun, air radar and torpedo. While AACI isn't stellar, she's stronger in night than any other AACI destroyer.
And yes I know it's before armour is taken into account. And I'm comparing both mixed and DA to base night damage, not mixed damage to DA damage, because I didn't want to use 8.333...%.
Just face it, torp is better.
No matter what he means, only luck cap is higher for mixed cut-in, modifier is the same.
It's clear what mixed AA/yasen cut-in setup offers. I don't see a point in arguing against it. Of fucking course one would go for TCI if he wanted power. The mixed setup is exactly that - mixed, sitting in the middle, offering AACI of some sort and yasen attack that is clearly stronger than double attack - but weaker than torp cut-in. If one thinks TCI power isn't needed but DA might be too weak and he'sll be fighting Wos - feel free.
Mixed is (was) perfectly viable choice for 50+ luck DDs. However with introduction of Maya Kai Ni with much stronger AACI you can (almost always) relegate AACI duty to main fleet while focusing on yasen power in escort fleet so there's little reason to go for mixed now.
Mixed is still viable, and sometimes even the best possible option, on luck boosted CAs - however in this case you go for double attack in day battle, not AACI.
>Mixed cut-in has a higher activation chance than torp cut-in
No. It has a higher luck cap, but that doesn't mean there's a hidden modifier to the ship's luck. A ship with 20 luck will have the same chances of performing a mixed and a torp CI.
Don't seem that thick.
I'd assume the prospect of all three holes being occupied by single gun scares her more.
And even so I'd still rather use Akizuki to supplement Maya even though I lose out on a ship that can attack at night, because the boss armour in events is very often high enough that unless the attack crits or you get insanely good armour rolls you're just going to deal scratch even with mixed CI. Torp CI reduces the chance of this happening by quite a bit.
I guess mixed could be viable if the boss armour isn't so high, but I maintain that enemy planes alone don't justify using mixed + AACI over torp. From my experience, 4 planes/slot is nowhere near enough to disable anything with more planes than a flagship Wo (and even then it rarely ever disables flagship Wos), even with AS+.
Kind of irritating sometimes but can't be helped I guess.
I did have some luck with Ooyodo in winter E2 but that was all I got. Never got to do that in E4 even though I had AACI with max Akizuki guns on both Maikaze and Nowaki (which I used before switching to torp CI for last dance).
H-Hey guys how come you never use my unique AACI?
3 more days left. Will she get a better looking uniform or will it be Fubuki tier change?
I'm trying to look up Rei-Go and all I found is:
DD DesRon2 DesDiv2 (Cap Nagajoshi Shiraishi): Kijoshimo/DF, Asashimo
CortRon31 DesDiv43: Kaja
DesDiv52: Sugi, Kashi
Can we assume those will be clear rewards?
Wiki also claims Ise and Hyuuga with no reference or citation.
Matsu class time?
No idea who Kaja is though.
Unless its a translation of Kaya.
Interestingly all three survived the war
There's very little difference between Isuzu and >anyothership<. However she has highest AA out of CLs and decent bulk so you might use her like that. Put two Akizuki guns and FuMO on her, her unique AACI is worthless.
What will her K2A gimmick be? Assuming her normal K2 is a copy of Lady or thereabouts.
I was going through the New Year's lines since I sorta forgot to. Why is Yamashiro still being cunty to TTK, even Kasumi has a surprisingly nice line while this stupid dyke is still dyking off. Hell, not even Ooi brushes him off as hard.
There are no worst CAs, just ones you don't like.
Neither of these CAs of mine is prone to choking though.
Happens all the time, get used to it. No one liked the Shiratsuyus either before they got their kai 2, although I would have had I known about the game earlier because I prefer their base forms.
Some more details on Rei-Go
44/12/24 departed from Cam Ranh Bay to shell allied beachhead at San Jose, Mindoro

As much as I've been following the gaming industry, it actually just consist of people releasing the games they would like to play themselves. So customers opinions are usually no concern. (They can make their own games)
>tfw used Kasumi as mod fodder thinking I already have her in my list of bad DDs I'll never use
World 1 here I come.
>According to a quarterly mook 艦これ鎮守府生活のすゝめVol.1 which was released in 2013, there are plans to implement new escort ships, and because their displacement is less than that of destroyers, they would take a younger form, but they are said to be for the final phase of the war and thus, while they want to release it as soon as possible, they have told the fanbase to please be patient about it. (That volume of mook also revealed the plan to implement Musashi, Akizuki-class destroyers, and Agano-class cruisers which are all now part of the game)
>Same repair time as submarines and less build time.
>Similar to DD but can't use torpedos.
Put in 2020 DMM points, bought marriage, furniture fairy, and 10 slots, I'm now at 20 DMM points and both boxes are devoid of that object
I think it says it can only be bought 17 times, so this would mean I've used three. In that case then I think I used it, although I have no clue how.
how do I git gud before the event?
You poor guy. Work hard in upcoming event, she can't wait to meet you.
Oh look, that uglyass interface wasn't a placeholder.
How is that game going to work anyway? Do they expect me to grind all that shit again, this time on a half-dead platform, or is there a way of syncing with your account.
>tfw arcade never ever
The vita game works differently. You capture grids on the map like you can see, and the Abyssals can take them back. They can even take over your base and you get a game over. There's supposed to be less time spent waiting on repairs and expeditions too. It's doubtful if it's going to be updated, because one of the reasons they said they kept delaying it for was adding the more recent girls. I don't know what other differences there are, but I think I remember you being able to sortie 6 fleets simultaneously.
I do, I'm going to give her love whether she likes it or not.
