I want to bully Mutsuki after school.
Obviously being out of fuel
I don't even have LSC, just trying to keep my Mutsu and Nagato afloat.
THey got really wrecked in the last battle and sat at the dock for about 15 hours or so.
Have 2 BB but both of them are fucking Kongou. I'm still not sure what to do with the second one.
Still don't have any other decent ship yet but I think it's a waste of resource if I level another Kongou.
Don't, you can't have two of the same ship in one fleet.
Sortie a bit to 2-2, boss drops BBs pretty often. You might want to hold off with remodeling Ise until you have four more BBs as they lose a lot of firepower after becoming BBV.
So apparently the gogames ripoff is actually a localized version of the Chinese ripoff.. any apparent different we see seems to be a result of evolution of the Chinese clone when people forgotten about it. Here is a more up to date introduction about the Chinese clone and you can see it look the same as the gogame one...
Any planes work as long as you reach your desired AS numbers. Higher fighter power planes are nice, but unless they give you another free slot for a bomber or let you arrange your bombers in more optimal positioning it doesn't really matter.
I'm assuming these ladies are at least level +75 for their near optimal performance. There is less than 2 weeks left.
Close enough, Kiyoshimo and Asashimo will probably reach 75 during the event.
1 month since I started, how am I doing?
I'm not sure what CA to level next after Maya, everything else seems to require BP.
I started a month before Winter2015 and managed to grab U with a fleet about half as good as yours. You should fare well, provided you have decent fighters too.
>running out of fodder
>Kasumi won't be ready until Monday at best
I swear to god after the event is over I'm levelling every common destroyer to 60. There's no way I can go through this shit again.
Also an irrelevant bit of advice: for your first event, keep the trophy DDs 'n' shit you find, it feels awesome when they come useful for routing a couple events later.
At least I have two whales.
>tfw I won't be able to make it in time to lvl
Kashitmi to 99
If you scrapped them, you don't deserve them.
I don't have any ships left that I could dismantle, have like Jintsuu and Naka and I'd rather keep them just in case I finally get that Sendai for the 3rd fleet unlock quest.
Had to strip torpedoes from my 2nd fleet DD's for fuel.
This'll be fine. This will be just fine.
>wanting HOI for downies
>not playing HOI3 instead
enjoy your mana, no commanders, no OOB, and no fucking COUNTERS
Usually run Tatsuta instead of Maya, but because she had full supplies, I put her in the expedition fleet as a substitute.
You may try to relax up a little bit. I am at HQ 101 but just stepping up my game this month. I have finally open 3-5 and 4-5 within a month and for the first time cleared 2-5 and 3-5. This game is mean to chill most of the time until events.
I k-kinda run 4BB 2CV from time to time. But not with the Nagatos, Kongou sisters instead.
I dunno, I kinda have the game open on the background whenever I'm on my PC. Mostly just watch as my ships are slowly repaired and try to get them fully restocked, then send them out on expeditions and sortie them whenever I can, which isn't all that often because of either no resources or the ships are too heavily damaged and I can't maintain them.
HQ lvl doesn't mean shit. He's probably been leveling through PVP and nodes that barely give any HQ experience. If you're clearing the game normally and at least doing your world 2 daily your HQ lv is bound to go up
>You may try to relax up a little bit
That's the worst advice you can give new players. The quicker he progresses, the faster he can catch up to older players, who are the primary userbase when it comes to events. Not to mention all the medals he's be missing out on.
Read the fucking wiki holy shit. You should be running expeditions all the time. Don't just sortie ships you like, research optimal loadout.
Stuck on 3-2 because I don't have any DD's that are above level 20. I have my 2nd fleet mostly consisting of DD's, but they're all base model, poorly or completely unequipped and low level.
I got my CL's, CA's and BB's out so early, I replaced the DD's completely. CV's phased out my CA's and left only the CL's because I like them and they're decent enough against subs.
> the faster he can catch up to older players
Well that is another way to look at it, I guess. For me I think we should take it easy and figure out the things first before jumping into any action, hence I've never tried 2-5 before I know my fleet can handle it consistently instead of getting taiha'd most of the time.
From his post you can see he is a bit too eager on training his ships while pondering little into other aspect.
Since the winter event is coming, I think your reasoning is more suitable for him than mine. Though I want to state that if I were him, I will skip this event (maybe do the first few maps which new players are completely capable of doing) and focus more on resources gathering to prepare for the next event.
Started playing in December 22. Currently stockpiling resources. Is it possible for me to clear event on Medium? I have only 1 AP shell, but i managed to craft 5 sanshiki.
That's a good stopping point for now, since the event is soon.
You need to level your DDs. Heavy ships like BB and CV can take care of themselves if they're max modernized in armour/fp but DDs need the evasion.
You also need Sendai asap. Either you wait to get her through sub crafting for dailies and sparkling on 1-1 (you are sending 6 sparkled ship expedition 5 to maximize your single exp fleet right?) or you go all in and spam min craft and spam 1-1 with your DDs.
Depends on the maps. And don't focus on the actual difficulty, I mean going medium instead of easy is only worth it if the rewards are good. No point in doing it just to be able to say you cleared it on medium
My sortie fleet isn't sparkled, I have no idea how to sparkle them all at once
Also, I'm spending all my resources in the morning in resupplying, repairing and trying to get sendai with the daily quest rewards, which isn't much.
Whoever says you can or can't is just guessing. Might be a piss easy event like last event and you can easily do hard, it might also be tough as balls like some maps from summer event and you're forced to go easy.
Even the people with Mamiya or Irako don't use it unless they're pressed for time in events.
Put the ship you want to sparkle as flag, put 1 or 2 lvl 1 fodder with nothing equipped as meatshields, sortie 3 times to 1-1. You don't need to resupply the meatshields. If they get damaged, swap them out because flagship protection only activates if they're not damaged (and to avoid sinking them like a kuso). Scrap or modernize away the meatshields.
If the flag ship isn't getting MVP on both fights, add more damage/go to yasen/ reduce # of meatshields.
Oh yeah, 1-5 is an option if you're lower HQ level for sparkling and it gives more exp too. You'd only need 2 runs instead of 3 for 1-1or 1 run if you go to boss.
Either is fine really. Sendai has 1% chance to drop at 1-1 boss, and 2% chance at 1-5 boss.
You can't hate any Takao.
Hopefully she'll get a Kai Ni that puts her par with her sisters. Not only that but her hair currently looks like crap, the artist showed improvements.
Your favorite ship is Buki right?
How can you hate the best thing to happen since sliced bread?
Not really. It was a quest chain with sortie quests in it
And Kasumi requires no catapult and no blueprint, thus she gives less incredible gear. Big deal. What did you expect? The fact that she can carry daihatsus makes up for it
Levels means nothing. Equipments are more important.
You don't always need the elite ships, sometimes you should just go with your heart, your favourite girl can give you the final glory.
Natural regen for resources is enough for event.
Plane chevron is the least variable stat in this rng game.
>sometimes you should just go with your heart, your favourite girl can give you the final glory.
The day Akitsushima is useful for anything is the day this game isn't worth playing anymore.
To this day, the wallpapers are still pretty bad.
I feel sparkling ships in this game is cheating! If I could reset all my ships morale to 49 without paying resources I would!
Sparkled ships have so much more advantage over non sparkled ships!
Night as fallen upon the humble naval district, every girl has fallen asleep with the exception of sweet Hayasui who
always comes tuck me in before bed time.
Nobody wants to see Mount Fuji anyway.
>Levels mean nothing
>Equipments are more important
Improvements are, rather.
>Natural regen for resources is enough for events.
Only if you want to get fucked by RNG if you want to farm.
>Plane chevron is the least variable stat in this RNG game
Even then we have torpedo bombers either scratching CLs or murdering gold Rus, so not so much.
Pre-event relaxation for my girls
It is finally Kasumi time to shine
I never noticed the Agano clothes in the corner.
Flat bullying will never not be funny.
What, you don't like memes and character breaks? You don't like every fucking person on the internet repeating "poi" ad nauseam? You don't like floods of newfags adding to growing blogging and streaming scene?
>Mamiya and Irako never
Why must I suffer?
What's wrong with her face? I can't pin down exactly what's wrong, but there's something off. She just looks like an alien in the official art.
I don't care about the drops of a bote i already have. Where's our gyaruru?
I thought Fall Ooyodo was amazing. It captured her skinny frame perfectly and a cute floral pattern.
She wasn't cured from Abyss virus like Harusame was. Watch her go nuclear inside the naval base, everyone will instantly regret recruiting her.
The song was about the full class that's in the game.
That's not the first time there is an Idol in a naval base.
>What the fuck an idol doing in a naval base?
Do the "large construction premium" and post your results, by the way, also got Ying yuang, accompanied with Akizuki and Prinz.
Man this games will be so pay2win once it goes live. Without those free 10k gold too purchase random pay2win lsc ship seems world 1-4 seems imposible
Their forum also filled with cancer that makes wikia looks better LOL
for anyone interested
Will the event music be hype or go back to being depressing again? It feels like they are sticking to the corruption and grief tone.
Fall '13 - Spring '14

I don't think I ever will understand why Love live and Kankore are put together. I see these shitlords in Warthunder too with paid squadrons, named after crossover shit. Why?
Chinese netizen call Tohou, Kancolle, and lovelive as "the three largest cult/devil religion" (jokingly), because some observed the widespread and rapid increase in popularity for both series in China and also the addictivity of their fans are nearly comparable to those cults. Since then these three works are often being drawn in parallel.
I want to join the Fubuki cult!
What should I be doing daily to maximise farming Buckets? I figured since I was on 28 I should start increasing that number, and now after 2 days I'm on 73 currently, hopefully that'll be 80 by the end of tonight, but all I've been doing is running Expeditions 2, 4 and 10 constantly.
The only dailies I do are the Exercise Dailies and the "Run expeditions" Dailies
So I should be doing the Sortie Dailies too?
Then I'm going to assume when farming Buckets you're supposed to end up depleting a fair chunk of your resources to then spend a couple of days doing nothing but farming them back through expeditions?
If you're doing 2/5/38 regularly you shouldn't have to worry about your bucket count and resources, but if you really need more buckets then it's best to put other resources on hold and run all bucket expeditions.
Doing dailies with subs actually gives you more resources that you can spend.
Get the subs a little damaged and then do the repair daily to get 2 free buckets.
Exp2 non stop is the key btw
I figure I should probably bring my Bucket count up to at least 200, but otherwise 300 if I can so I should probably focus full on on getting Buckets since once I need to only focus on resources it doesn't cost Buckets to get them or whatever so it's easier to do one at a time.
That and I can't do 38 yet I'm fairly sure as I somehow don't have 8 Drums.
I only have 6 subs so I probably am not able to only use subs, but for the most part I do primarily use subs for the dailies.
3 subs to run 3 different expeditions? How?
Also, my stats are considerably shit so I probably won't be able to be prepared for the event in any way, so I might get to 150 or 200 buckets and then hold off and work on getting resources to at least around 50,000 each excluding Bauxite.
>I only have 6 subs
What? 6 is more than enough for the dailies, I'm talking about the 10 enemy fleet kills and if you have time the transport ships and 2-3 boss kills.
I use 4 and they are enough most of the times.
Lately I just do the first 2 red quests tho, not even the 10 kills.
I only finally got the day before yesterday and unlocked my 4th fleet.
Then decided to try getting Bismarck and got 2 more Haruna's through LSC. I now understand why you shouldn't bother trying to craft things before an event.
You only unlocked your 4th fleet a few days ago? Unless you have some really bizarre luck, you shouldn't be able to craft Bismarck yet. You have to do the questline that requires the 48 hour expedition multiple times before it's even possible.
I left out the detail that I've already completed the Z1 quests.
Maybe a couple of days ago was the wrong word, I've forgotten how many days ago it was, but definitely less than a week ago.
I sort of just did the Z1 quest line the moment I could do it.
Then I finally decided to put together a team to clear out 2-5 and while I was doing it I dropped Haruna.
Is there some complex thing a stupid player like me isn't getting here or what?
I was farming 3-2, I just got nothing but an endless supply of Harunas and a single Kirishima from the drops there though.
Doubt it, as far as I know the ship I'm after doesn't drop from it so I'm saving my resources until I know for certain and then just spamming LSC's once it's confirmed.
Behold, unmedicated autism in its purest state.
Is 3-5 supposed to be really hard or am I just a shitter?
First time trying to do it and I got one ship taiha'd and 3 ships chuhaa'd on node B.
If you keep trying you'll eventually make it but I'd suggest using a heavier comp that sacrifices guaranteed routing. Also Isuzu is weaker than some DDs so I don't see why you would be using her on a map like 3-5
You're relatively gimped with the potatoes and Isuzu. You can probably get away with just 2 reds 1 radar on everyone and hope to murder them in daytime shelling before they launch torps.
How does it feel to know that you will never sortie together with your fellow /jp/ teitoku Big E?
What about those last two? They're ugly.
Is 600 buckets enough? Switching to full time fuel farming should put me to nearly 100k if I start now.
Kiyoshimo is cute, dude.
Not touched the game for a month and now I have to powerlevel kasumi
It does feel like work sometimes. Android version needs to be sooner
Level doesn't matter.
Reigo will be a piece of cake.
Lemme show you kids something
I can go full autist on sunday if need be. It'll hit 75 at least
>Don't bother using BBs/Tones, it;s better to scrap them.
That's bullshit anon, if you stick one in with a CVL you have the chance for 5 points instead of 3. Or you could save up till you have 3. come on now.
It's a waste of resources. BBs give 50 steel.
It's better to wait until you have more CVLs. You were going to train your DD anyway.
Junyou + RJ/Shouhou gives +6 which is the most efficient combo. Likewise Junyou + 2 ChiChi. Or two RJ + Chitose.
Orel is but yeah, 38 gives the most out of expeditions. However if you have a lot of steel it's better to run 2/5/21. Grinding ships takes more ammo than fuel so it evens out and you don't have to run 37.
Anon pls, obviously we're talking expeditions.
>best thing to run if you want fuel
Can you read? Also does that make 2 useless? Because you get a fairly decent amount of steel from running 2.
Huh? 21 gives more resources than TE. Sparkling shouldn't be an issue, you should always sparkle drum expedition, regardless of which one you're running.
Can YOU read? 21 gives both fuel ammo.
Because I love her so much and you can too.
I'm so glad you guys are always making fun of people who don't do everything on hard mode. It's fucking unbelievable that the people who are editing the wikia's event pages are the fucks who clear events on easy and still complain about it being too hard. What fucking credibility do they have?
I started very early in 2015 and I feel like it was a good time to join. Playing catchup wasn't too overwhelming and a lot has happened since then.
I feel sorry for TTKs joining today.
Late 2014 wasn't bad either since I managed to clear Fall E3 but having no Reppuu Kai or more repair cranes really sucked.
Yeah, playing catch up was really fun, noticing how with each next week you're less of a newbie and become capable of giving out advice instead.
If anything double chevrons just makes the difference in plane quality less noticable, especially greens. It's probably not a stretch to say that there's a high chance I'll still be able to clear the event on hard even though I started playing on this account for less than a month.
I meant that in the past planes were really weak so it would be interesting to know how much chevrons help early on, sorry for wording it badly. I can't even check now because high level max modernized ships obliterate world 2 no matter what you put on them.
I think every shipgirl would benefit from wearing glasses.
>Glasses are firepower
Poor Mochi is destined to be shit forever, it's not fair.
