To the anon who said he's never seen Abyssal flagship protection, here it is. It's way too common if they are in diamond formation.
Does anyone else stop at +7 instead of +6 when doing spread out upgrades?
Most of my upgrading has gone into conversion rather than stars. FDs into duckguns, pasta and krautguns into kai, and few 35.6 into protos, quads into quints. BB guns will get their time eventually.
I don't feel like my battleships have a problem with making things die so I'm fine with it happening in due time.
But regular 35.6 are drab and grey. Protos are sleek and shiny and have two (!) fairies.
And do I look like I'm made out of 10 cms or something? I have a lot of destroyers to equip, you know.
The only thing I ca be bothered to grind are KitaOoi to 10 for their quads. Anything else is too much of a hassle.
The more I stick around with the game, the more I realize how autistic players can get with this.
>that one top 5 rankfag
>the guy holding off his first ring for Shinano
>the other guy holding off his first ring for Enterprise to marry
>the guy who scrapped everybody so Ooyodo could be #1
>the guy who likes Abukuma way too much
>the guy with the weird head canon about scrapping ships
There are loads of others I'm missing. Why can't you people just take it easy?
You have fun your way, we have fun ours.
What a slut. Who did this and why?
I will get another chance for Eugen/Akizuki in the coming event right guys?
who should I level before the event?
I have three blueprints.
kaga got taiha'd at E node
i have no idea how to play this game if you can't tell
With the aircraft proficiency system Reppuu mules are obsolete, as you want every carrier to be able to shell for overcrits before they're disabled. Move the Muratas and Tomonaga to the higher slots, move the Egusa to a higher slot as there's no reason for the Type 2 Recon to be taking up Zuikaku's 12-slot.
Radars are fine for 5-4, but you might want AP Shells instead.
Use AP shells instead of radars on BB. Re-arrange your planes so that every carrier at least has a bomber on first slot.
Ditch the type 2 recon. Saiun and obs planes all give contact. You'd be better served by another fighter or bomber.
Oh. I remember deciding once to change the fleet name to current one but noticed it already was that. I guess that means I already changed the name even earlier and don't remember anymore? Thanks, I though torpedo squadron is default for main fleet.
>Not sure why he replied to you.
Because I didn't agree with his implication, duh.
Realize what this site is and that people are free to join the discussion. If you want private counseling, go elsewhere.
Is this any better? FP is 435~457
>inb4 still fucking retarded
Which of these is the easiest to do?
Which ones will make me want to kill myself?
Don't level when tired. You're going to sink something.
I'll just slap in a wikia guide because I'm lazy:
Secondary cut-in on BB, one gun and T3 sonar on CLT, one=two guns and one-two T3 sonars on CL depending on health.
Dive bomber on CV.
CA can have double attack no problem.
BB w/ red/yellow/ap
1 CLT with midget/red/Type 3
1 CL with double red/Type 3
1 CA with DA setup
1CV with one dive bomber (put it below the top slot, which has double crit bonus for chevrons)
If you slap a few screws on your flag's ASW setup they'll get crazy crits and never miss MVP.
Kasumi with full ASW
Give everyone else lousy weapons and asw.
Or I could sortie any of the other non-ducky/non-german/non-speedslut/non-verniy 30 odd DDs i have lying around, and spend maybe 10 fuel and 15 ammo
Tough choice anon, tough choice.
Isuzu is basically useless
you get a shitty radar at lvl 12 (if you are new to the game you might want it, but in the long run it is more useless than useless)
you also get a type 3 dc at level 50, but it's not worth the effort to level her since you will literally never find an opportunity to sortie her
Hmm, you might be right. Isuzu is my first CL that got to Kai Ni, so I am kinda fond of her. But then I realised that I seldom use her in events. Usually I'll just use her in E1 or E2 only.
If Isuzu and Kasumi's new special AACI only shoots down 4 planes then what makes them different from literally every other ship that can equip 2x 10cmHA+FD and an Air radar which also shoots down 4 planes?
35.6cm becomes outright better than proto already at +4 because they're tied in firepower while 35.6cm +4 gives more accuracy.
>It's actually 4.5 which matters in practice when you have two reds that add up to +9.
Also in case of modifiers.
You might be forced to run Rei-go fleet. In such case K2B would be good choice so that you can bring Tone as sixth ship. You should use Akizuki guns on Kasumi anyway, just with FuMO instead of T13K.
How does Kasumi being in B form affect Tone's involvement? Kasumi can AACI just as well in regular form except with way better firepower. Sure fleet AA will suffer a bit but I'd have rather firepower over that.
Because she's significantly better at AA in K2B thanks to more AA and FuMO?
Kasumi's is more effective. But yeah, you can use Akizuki setup on all of them for ~90% AACI rate.
I still see no reason to sacrifice all that delicious power for a some AA. AA is probably the most unreliable stat in the game. There are so many random variables involved that you shouldn't even be arsed.
Look. What I'm saying is that choosing K2B over K2 is like choosing a AA gun over an AP shell for BBs (if we ignore the fact that AP shells also activate artillery spotting) It's completely illogical.
No, it isn't the same in the slightest.
K2B with FuMO offers much bigger increase to AA than some shitty aa gun. At the same time, Kasumi only loses 4 fp (but gains back 3 from FuMO) and 9 torpedo. It's very likely we'll have to use her vs land base who ignores torpedo stat.
Also, artillery spotting is 95% of AP Shell's power and usefulness.
2-5 is actually pretty hard without ABKM if you go through the middle. Might as well just do the monthly together with Kasumi.
They're a bit down the reserve but come in handy if you go suijou. But you're trying way too hard to one-up people on /jp/ to feel better, it's concerning me. Do you need a friend?
She pretty much sucks now that Kuntsumi K2 is a thing, although she does allow you to bypass most suirai sentai LOS checks and lets you do dumb bm7 setups like this one
You'll be at 大将 all month if you do all EO (excluding 5-5 of course). Want to be at 元帥? Do the EOs on the first day and you'll be at 元帥 for a few days. Any more other than that, you go full rankfag.
- relatively high chance of going to J which can get you taiha'd
- have to bring heavy ships to deal with non-subs, which can double if not triple sortie cost
- can't ignore fatigue since lower evasion can fuck you over at J
- can only bring one DD at a time
- more exp per node
- 75% to go to ASW node
- ASW node is always subs-only
- fatigue is actually advantageous as it increases the chance of the flagship getting the MVP
- can bring whoever you want (except 2CA(V))
- less downtime between sorties
Plus the subs' accuracy is so shit, they're unable to hit you without crits - on which morale have no effect.
The main reason why one would want to have high morale on 5-1 is accuracy of your own ships but that isn't necessary for A/B.
I did quite a bit of 5-1 this month and honestly, amount of taiha has very little correlation with morale of your girls. The slightly higher amount comes from the fact it's likely opposing sub or two could survive.
I grinded Kasumi on 4-3 because I wanted to get it done fast and while taiha rate was surprisingly low, the amount of resources spent was very high comparatively. Definitely not worth it when the goal is "training DDs".
Refresh. It's safe. Trust me. I'm a fairy.
I like how this game can change from player to player, and play style.
-taiha'd in node J about twice in 2 weeks of heavy grind
-because I use my married heavy ships, which reduce costs a bit (less than 100 ammo/fuel for 3 nodes)
-I ignore fatigue because with 3 nodes I don't lose morale, with 2 nodes it's -3 morale
-I want to exp 1 DD at a time and other 5 fixed married girls (they are at lv144 atm)
-I really hate this map
-tanaka's quests in this map are crazy
-I would never set foot on this map of my will
-never got to ASW node, ever
-this is my most hated map of the game
Not him, I use pic related.
When DD gets chuuha'd, I give it another piece of ASW. SL is there for the heck of it, no reason.
When flagship drops to 30 morale or less, I use different DD as flag.
I'm honestly surprised more people aren't salty, this is the first time a total bitch got an overpowered form, maybe with the exception of Ooi who only got her meme yandere personality as a result of the shitty anime
When's the Kumano Makizuchi fanart?
A lot of people play for stats, they don't give a shit how much of an annoying bitch she is as long as the kai ni is good. Then there's most of everyone else who just saw that she looks cute now and can be fapped to.
Abukuma wasn't a piece of shit though, just an average girl with an annoying voice. I mean the voice is irritating but I would never in a million years consider her on the same level as kuntsumi.
Don't forget Ooyodo and levels, but in reality you don't really need Tone kai for the quest, just 1 married ship will give a nice LoS boost and good LoS equipment and seaplane levels give bonuses too.
Abukuma has #2 worst voice after Yamashiro while Kasumi's is bearable so it evens out in my opinion. Now that Kasumi became cute and strong, only her character is a problem - but I can live with that.
>Abukuma has #2 worst voice after Yamashiro
What the fuck?
It can't be helped if you don't like her character, but her voice is perfectly fine and far from being the worst.
It is by far the worst. I can't bear the sound of it, whenever I put her in main fleet, I immediately mute the game just so I don't have to listen to her. Yes, it's that bad. When she drops, I try to click through her introduction ASAP.
Sometime I want to be a fairy rather than an Admiral.
Am I the only one?
Being a fairy seems like it would be pretty awesome.
Fairy pilot spin-off when, Tanaka?
They work in the workshop too.
>And what would they do besides fly?
get shot down
I like how both #1 and 2 have been competing since last week.
Me and Kitakami liked Abukuma before she was cool.
Now that the dust has settled, does she deserve all the things she can now do?
If nothing else, we deserved an interesting DD Kai2. I was always neutral about Kasumi, I'm certainly not going to fucking cry about the fact that she was the one they chose to use to give it to us.
Deserve? Most definitely not. Thankfully, aside from being one of top priorities (after Shimakaze, Yukikaze, Yuudachi and Shigure) because >daihatsu she isn't actually overpowered.
However it's a shame that she outclasses previous most recent DD Kai Ni in every way. It would be better if devs left some niche for Akatsuki or at least let her remodel at 60. Difference in cuteness is still big though, so hopefully more people will be using Lady.
>If nothing else, we deserved an interesting DD Kai2.
I agree with that.
The phrase 朝潮型はガチ was popular way before Kasumi kai ni was hinted.
Should I use leftovers to modernize ships that haven't had their final remodel yet or scrap them instead?
>people only remember Akashi and Ooyodo
These nips should stop drawing Kongou and Kaga for one day, maybe Kashima too.
Mutsuki class K2 next month, and remaining unimplemented mutsukis later this year
Satsuki/Nagatsuki next month and enjoy your weaker DD before Matsu.
Wasn't Nagatsuki the twitter icon for like, fucking ever? I mean long enough that every time there was a new announcement, I expected it to be "Nagatsuki Kai2 coming soon!" for fucking months and months.
Maybe Nagatsuki was just the waifu of whatever new hire they had managing twitter back then, I don't even know.
>People didn't even know she'd been given a kai 2 for weeks afterward
What? I woke up literally half an hour after it was implemented because my phone went off from the dev tweet and made sure to post her Kai 2 countless times afterwards. You could not miss it.
I'm just trying to recall what I did for decoration farming since my lazy ass didn't clear 2-5 yet. And I got sent to F, which is what confuses me. Going at it with 2 DD now.
I meant CAV, for some reason I put in the parens.
