How fucked are you?
What if they add new ships or equipment that gives a really high accuracy bonus against Imps.
Then to make it not useless outside of events, add Imps to many of the normal map nodes.
You're right but sparkling big ships is a huge hassle so I prefer doing it all at once and then enjoying 4-5 straight sorties.
It was really annoying when Re was hitting with both torp and shelling and my girls couldn't avoid any hit so I gave up on sparkling. It didn't really matter because most of the retreats were due to crits (even fucking diamond Ta sent me home once, it was crazy) or focus fire on self-sparkled ship and majority of sinking protection instances were unfavorable despite theoretical chance of chuuha being higher. RNG was just out to get me that day, hopefully it will be satisfied until after the event.
I guess it's a lesson to never underestimate the map. Maybe I'll try Hotels+subs with supports next time.
>fleet of two married battleships
>set up battleship fleet with katori and kashima
>enemy fleet is now 6 submarines
This huge hassle saves me 50% of what you just lost, and I don't even have CVAs yet.
>most of the retreats were due to crits
>It didn't really matter
High morale increases evasion.
>Hotels+subs with supports next time
That will just increase the cost tenfold with no visible benefit.
>High morale increases evasion.
Crits have 100% accuracy.
I never tried that comp so I'm simply curious how it performs and want to sortie Yamato for something else than event Last Dance. It's not like I will have much to do after the event.
It's going to be a small scale event, why are you all even worrying about resource hoarding so much? Surely some 50k+ of each resource should be plenty to clear every map on hard, it was last year.
>Kiyoshimo was then finished off by a torpedo from U.S. PT-223, 145 miles (233 km) south of Manila (12°20′N 121°0′ECoordinates: 12°20′N 121°0′E); 82 were killed and 74 injured.
We're going to be fighting a PT boat that's literally a Ball Buster.
Fuck, I don't have Asashimo and Kiyoshimo. Those bitches just won't appear for some reason during previous events.
Their drop rate is lower than Prinz or some shit.
I already got Oooyodo and Ashigara leveled so will leveling Kasumi suffice?
It was supremely cheap and easy if you went with the skeleton cheesing combined fleet with 7 ships total and a sub to tank all of Darwin's hits. If you tried to do it conventionally then you're SOL, pay attention to the thread for farming comps next time.
Keep her in K2 and switch to B if the devs give us reason, as I see it. Unless they're creative, why would we need her built-in AACI or an FCF?
Plus, if we get transport meter again, normal K2 can equip landing botes.
>And no one in the right mind would deploy both Akitsuki class and Maya at the same time.
Everyone in their right mind would do that because it's by far the most effective two ship AA combo.
Will the Matsu-class come with what is right now the rarest equip of them all?
This one gives you +1 whole FP point due to SEKAI ICHI!
Yes, there was someone who did that using T94FD fairies as the reference and failed. But the trend just become strong recently, and Mk.7 is the first equipment that is released before its owner after the trend has started.
Still, this is just an autism chart. Don't take it seriously.
And you realize one Akizuki class or Maya with a right equipment is enough to trigger CI almost all the time right?
Trigger rate doesn't stack nor deploying multiple ships with AACI setup increases your chances. They are set percentage where both (or even three of them) might fail to trigger because RNG.
You're literally sacrificing one or two slots for nothing.
Imagine the butthurt if some day out of nowhere they add an exclusive new shipgirl to top5 only without even warning anyone about it and
she's the best of her ship type by a marginal bit.
>almost all the time right
Relax. Each of them has 70% or slightly less. With both you achieve ~90%. I'm not saying it's perfect setup for killing SS Hime or Antizuki but it is viable and most definitely the best option if one deems AA valuable enough.
>Trigger rate doesn't stack
It does. When ship with highest API doesn't proc the AACI, next one in line gets the roll. And it continues until AACI procs or you have no more capable ships.
>nor deploying multiple ships with AACI setup increases your chances
Seriously, educate yourself.
Stop or get out.
>No AV Hime
She's the only known boss I'm afraid of.
What is tokyo express?
I've just been running expeditions 5,6, 21 and orel.
Huh really? Looking at T94FD fairies now they do resemble Akizuki, Terazuki and a possible 3rd sister(Hatsuzuki?). At least I think so. But obviously trying to predict the final cg from the fairies would leave a lot of room for error
This might just be the weirdest name I've seen yet.
I say yes, as unremodelled ChitoChiyo have lower consumption than Kamo and the same consumption as unremodelled Mizuho (but why wouldn't you remodel her?), so the pair of them are useful for overnight fuel grinding from Exp 36.
I just tried to do screw upgrade quest in the last minute and was too late to complete.
I used it on a 91 AP Shell that I really didn't need to upgrade.
I will never recover this screw.
Treat her well! I'm almost halfway there!
Close, but not quite. I'm going to marry Prinz in non-kai simply because I like the camo more, as it matches Bismarck's. I just like the art more.
I like the regular art for the Myoukous better than the K2 as well
>only two more weeks until we get another transport fleet map
Tanaka's going to put the drop ship there, isn't he?
I'm indifferent to either art. They both have their pros and cons. I K2d her as my first CAV, but Tone K2 has the better art by far.
I hate all the Moyukou K2 art except Haguro, but I wish it still kept the same style as her original. The K2 art just looks awful.
how the fug do some of you have 100k of each resource and 1k buckets?
Buy docks and slots. Keep girls instead of scrapping for space. Rotate damaged girls for undamaged ones when sortie-ing. If you don't have autism over it, keep dupes too (subs, expedition workers, etc.).
Akitsu Maru, Mizuho, Abukuma, Kasumi - there are four options.
I usually have Abukuma and Akitsu Maru in two expeditions because I'm still training Kasumi while Mizuho goes on ex35 overnight.
Exactly. In one hour I'm awake I can run ex2 twice. And there are times when I only sleep 6 hours, meaning I could even send out ex5 twice.
This game desperately needs good 6-8hr expeditions.
Not him, but when you're asleep the hours aren't being wasted because you wouldn't be able to capitalize on the "lost" hours anyway. What matters is total yield when you wake up and collect.
That being said ex36 looks better to me since I send ex24 as well.
Ex 35/36's yields are almost all steel/bauxite, and I don't want two hours still on the clock when I wake up. And ultimately, TE is extremely convenient because you can get great results without sparkle, and the base yield is already amazing. So even if I'm not feeling like playing kanColle all day, I'll still do TE.
Now to grind that extra 5
I'm going to level them to 50 or so, just in case I need 2 or more AVs in an event.
I know they'll pull some real bullshit with light fleets. They're getting worse for it all the time.
The grind is bigger than a Korean MMO, just for 2 extra LoS
Hull is too radioactive, And I'm all out of Rad-away
And out of vodka,too
I have Mizuho. I'm concerned there'll be a map where I need 3 AVs. Or that she'll get fleet locked on another map.
Kamo is fine for routing, but if I can use ANY other AV, I will.
Just one at the time. Lv99 Imuya with 2 engines has 75 evasion which gets you an average of 3 runs before Taiha. I believe my record so far is 12 runs non-stop with one Imuya, totaling ~1200 steel.
The only expeditions you don't run sparkled are 1, 4, 10 and 20. Everything else is worth more resources. Too tedious to use though, only good for burning off morale on Sunday after rollover.
Running Orel sparkles my sub so might as well put them to use
If your subs are sparkled I'm assuming it's just RNG. Might also be that married subs trigger overkill protection less making them more likely to get one-shot to red. I know that Imuya triggers overkill protection more often than other subs so I've only been using them.
yes orange protection is good for imuya but that's not the point. there's two nodes both with abyss asw (2nd node has gold DD and is always in double line too) and there's no way a single sub could survive 3 rounds unless you're extremely lucky
When will they make Yuubari not useless?
I sense that after a long time of irrelevance this event will actually be LoS heavy.
My god, what a major bitch. Thank goodness there are only very few of these kinds of girls.
>survived day attack
>still die in yasen
fuck that's retarded
Nigger just because she survived day battle doesn't mean she won't sink during night if you entered the node in red. She just won't sink at night if she got taiha'd during the day in the same node.
Newbie here, do I understand it right that I can add more ships than needed to an expedition even if they are of a different type than the required one?
For example can I complete Expedition 30 with 4 subs at lv1 and one DD at lv 55?
Newfag here, I can't get Naka and Sendai, i want a Taihou so bad
Man, Arashi's voice is so fucking hot, I wish she dropped.
Only because I keep forgetting to take ABKM out of the expedition fleet.
AV (2 best seaplane bombers + Kohyoteki), Abukuma, 4 DD is very consistent in both clear rate and routing
Hayasui, Abukuma, 4 DD is just as consistent in clearing but a bit worse in routing
Where the fuck is the Aoba seasonal sprite? Why does Kinugasa always get the good stuff?
HOLY FUCK BASED FUJIKAWA HE DIDN'T FORGET HER
But Aoba's artist drew this less than a year ago.
Forget Hungry Wolf, Pudding or Myouchoke, this is the real best CA.
I love Inazuma!
#1 Best Wife
Can't wait to get her to 99
I want Inazuma K2 and I want it now.
>-Winter event has been announced to be Operation Rei-Go, for February 10th. It will not have many ship rewards.
It's seems that they changed it to "multiple ships". should be multiple DDs.
The Re femdom reverse-rape vore book is pretty good
Getting emasculated by a bikini-wearing monster girl is just fantastic on so many levels
>tfw <99 gets Yamato/Musashi at ease
>tfw you're >99 where they don't appear after dumping over 100K resources and still counting
What's the deal with her and loli ships?
>made canon by the anime and subsequent seasonal lines
All she did in the anime was rig a competition so she wouldn't have to eat spicy food. She has the tastes of a kid, not a taste for them. See her choice of drink at the bar furniture. The anime had the subtlety of a brick through a window. If they wanted it, they would have treated her like Akagi. And her setsubun line is just a joke about her horns and getting dragged into the oni role. There's no reason to think Nagamon is canon.
>I actually broke my chair laughing backwards
Nice autism man.
So who's going to get the new guide magazine that's coming out tomorrow? It's comes with a DVD of the Movie Trailer and some other stuff.
Get in losers, were saving the world.
>yfw shitbuki is actually more competent and relevant than poi k2 in da anime
So... Tawi-tawi here and about an hour ago the game started to lag immensely between every action I take. Like 30 second every input that requires loading.
But no error cats so far.
Connection or provider are not the issue.
Anyone else with the same issue?
Yeah I had that happen a while ago as well. It should go away fairly soon. If it goes away you have nothing to worry about but if you start getting catbombs at set times start worrying. If the catbombs won't go away within a day or so you're most likely getting removed from rankings or banned.
>but that would make sense actually
Not really, because I don't think they can (or care to) throttle my client latency at will.
And I don't macro/bot/whatever.
Looks like now is gone here btw, still I hope it gets fixed for the other servers (Hashirajima, Seiki...) before the event hits.
>throttle my client latency at will.
It's automated and it's enough to crash most bot/macro, even ones with built in catbomb recovery because of the unusually long delay.
Just wait a bit and it will go away,
and stop botting.
Guess I'll just wait it out since it's almost unplayable.
It happens when I play normally as well, I was kind of hoping it'd be something server side.
thanks for the help though.
I guess we'll see. I'm only churning out around 100 sorties a day, so it shouldn't be that dangerous.
Ok now I'm more inclined to believe you, first time I've seen that.
And now it's completely gone, who knows why it was triggered on my account.
The closest I get to botting is grinding 4-3 like a madman and I am pretty slow at that anyways.
I've triggered it multiple times with my autism. Every time I've been fine while there have still been mass banning or removals. It's a fairly common thing, just that people don't realize it's an anti-cheat measure.
It's Tomonaga, and yes it is but I only bother farming the dragons when ranking.
I'm the guy who got banned just as soon as September ranking rewards was released in October last year.
Do you have any idea how one can petition for an unban? I've tried contacting them on twitter/DMM but they've never given me a response. I'd take any chance at getting my old account back over continuing on this new account.
It's safer if you toggle to another window during that delay, too. Also since Flash can track mouse movement I recommend recording your usual activity and then attaching pieces of it to the script to make it seem more real.
People have tried, and there's no way to contact them as far as I know, you will never get the reason for your ban either. Can you honestly say you have no idea as to why you got banned? What were your F5 habits? Did you use mobile device to play? Did you use any kind of measure to speed up to client? Did you use a comment or fleet name that could have been against their terms of service? There's a common belief that they don't ban you without a good reason and I'm inclined to believe that. Last, did you use a viewer that logs your sorties, expeditions and such that could at least prove you weren't full on bot always repeating same sorties and never missing expeditions.
I've been using logbook + KCV to log drops and resources back then but I deleted everything that's related to KanColle on my PC back when fall event almost ended and I still did not get a reply from them. I rarely F5 when I'm ranking in 5-4 with subs since I'm using the BattleInfo plugin. Didn't need to use a mobile device to play since I practically make a living from home. No script/macro/bot/speedhack too.
Have you never been to Newgrounds or something? They might not record, or even request it all the time, but it's piss-easy to do. I remember a few weeks back some guy with SDD complained about DMM writing on a file every 5 or so seconds. That file could very be the log on your activity.
First started ranking in August and got to ~350 rank on the last day, got triggered when I didn't get the rewards and decided to get to rank 50 in September, then I got banned in October.
You know you can just click browse and paste the link to post an image right?
Whatever you were doing triggered their anti-cheat detection and you got removed from ranking as warning. They saw it continue in September as well and decided to ban you.
Where is this from? I asked /jp/ when I didn't get my reward and people told me that it's normal to drop ~150 ranks on the last day if you do nothing and that's what I did, so I didn't pay much mind to it. If that's really what happened then this is pretty fucked up.
It's the official community news that comes out every time they release ranking rewards. You can't access the page without VPN or fiddled cookies
If that's how it is then I guess there's nothing else that I can do now. I honestly have no idea what I'm doing differently from the other players that flagged me for cheating. I didn't even get the "anti-cheat cat" until just two weeks before I get banned. It just irks me that I have to deal with all these while all the blatant botters are still in the game.
Haven't really modernized all that much, only my CA
's and those two DD's. Have only up to 3-2 unlocked and am struggling a bit there with my main fleet.
Tenryuu and Tatsuta suck so I wouldn't even bother leveling them. Their only good use is having them unremodeled for expeditions since their consumption is lower than other CLs. If you like them and don't care about efficiency go ahead and level them though
Tenryuu has been there pretty much from the start and she's quite capable right now compared to the rest of my fleet, mostly thanks to her high level.
I'm also going to marry her once I figure out how I get there.
If your CAs are modernized, don't bother taking them to 1-5, they'll do fine on 3-2-A.
Get a Kuma (or Nagara if you're into bloomers), she's Jintsuu K2 tier but at level 20 and not 60.
1-5 should mostly be used for DDs and CLs as it's very annoying to train them elsewhere and there's a lot of DDs. CAs, BBs and CV(L)s are best trained at 3-2-A, preferably with help of sub.
Do 250/30/200/30 for construction dailies hoping for subs, Yukikaze, Shimakaze and Abukuma. Doing full 1-5 runs is also a good way for getting subs, you will want some for tanking and later Orel. You need ASW eq to farm 1-5 but it's very cheap to develop.
Should be. At minimum you need 8 big radars, one for each carrier and BB in support expeditions. Rangefinder and two FuMO help with that.
At maximum you will want two big radars on each BB, carrier and Kasumi K2B plus several more in combined fleet if you were to face PT shits.
I'm still waiting for Prinz zwei that won't be horribly gimped and will come with her actual historical FuMO 81.
I suppose it's against the rules to use auto mouse moving/clicking programs? Start 1-5, do first node, retreat, refuel, do it again gets really tiresome.
Also, to help other people in pvp I suppose I should leave just one high-level ship in the main fleet?
Yeah, there is some drama right now about that Chinese ranker who earned 15555 points last month. He was ranking with ridiculous pts/hour pace while also leveling his DDs to 155 (Apparently he was leveling them without gaining any HQ experience). I'm guessing speedhacks can be difficult to detect and/or punish when you can speed up the game just by wanking your mouse furiously at the screen.
You only have to resupply after dropping under 60%
The final midnight check for the end of each month is never displayed. You can still gain points between 3pm and 10pm for the last day so you can only know by looking at the info tab below the game window once they announce the results. They usually write down the borders for after top20, top100 and near top500
Yeah. A while back he posted a shopped screen of showing himself banned, and when he showed he was just fucking with them the Jap community basically went apeshit
For me it works if I use KCV, you can especially speed up the aerial phase. If I try it with Chrome however it doesn't work.
Because wiki is written by paranoid scrubs. Getting hit to chuuha by Ri once in 20 battles isn't a big deal.
Secondary cut-ins with surface radars should hit ~half the time in red morale.
