Dumb question, but is 6-1 S rank even possible? Even with boilers, subs always taiha on the first node no matter which route I go. Taigei can't do shit and none of the builds actually have enough firepower to kill the boss. Taigei 2dd 3ss was the only success I had and that was barely a clear with a B. Seems like bm2 is just a shitty quest worth skipping every time.
>is 6-1 S rank even possible?
>Even with boilers
Bad idea, you need the cut-ins to S rank. Also the more ships you sink with the opening torpedo attack, the better. Best defense is a good offense.
6 SS are better, she's only good at being cute.
>Taigei 2dd 3ss
CV, CLT, CL (ABKM) + 3 SS is the strongest composition IMO, is more expensive than 6 SS tho.
>is just a shitty quest worth skipping every time
Why is she wearing glasses? Does she know it can hurt your head?
How the fuck is this 100x sexier when it's basically the same. It's styled like this only because nips go full retard when they see anything related to gay-furballs (some people call them 'cats').
I still can't believe monkeyman became this good.
I thought his career was over after all the monkey business and the bashing that he received that people thought he rage quit after he changed his profile to taiha,
I haven't played kancolle for awhile (last time was the fall event), so can someone please tell me info on the next event? Like which ships should I prioritize, how big is the event, how much resources should I save, etc.
>Isn't it just the Winter 2016 event
It's fucking Rei-Go.
>Tan Yang, Hamakaze K2B, Saber K2B, Yankeegumo K2B, and Yahagi K2B
Every time one of those happens we will be one step closer to death.
Your base will have an HP gauge
Waves of abyssals come at you
You defend your base for a whole period of two weeks
The more you don't play, the more your HP will reduce
How do you expect her to do her best if you don't show that you love her?
Well see, that's the thing. I don't love her in the slightest. Whatever, I'd rather take the harder routing than actually dedicate any sort of time or waste any PVP EXP on a ship I hate.
So Graf and Mizuho are returning. Are they worth going after considering how much I suffered last event and the event before trying to get them separately?
140 fucking runs and not once did that woman show her face, while everyone around me encountered her on the first run!
And what's it like to beat RNG and succeed at S ranking every run?
I got about 20 S ranks, 50 A ranks, and the rest were taihas, and not for lack of well equipped girls!
You don't need to see the whole image, the devs have been using the Agano class winter outfit faces as twitter icons for weeks.
I know, I can thank Dyson for that. I cleared the boss fine almost every run, but she kept me down by being stubborn, or taihaing my ASW ships.
Good to know. Too much wasted time on shiny new girls I couldn't get if my life depended on it.
Why did you people reply to that retard? We knew Winter 2016 would be Rei-go and that Kasumi would get Kai Ni somewhere before last Summer, not playing since Fall doesn't excuse him in the slightest.
It's okay, love will find a way.
I only do PVP and don't even grind them exclusively and even then they are higher level than yours.
>Abukuma is annoying
>but not Prinz
Abu is too cute
What are you talking about?
ABKM is my waifu while chiyoship is at the cold storage.
Cutest konishi ship
Her hair is really beautiful, but ichiban will remain as the special one for me, also fuck tanaka.
She's not even the ichibanest ichiban.
Being Isuzu is suffering.
ABKM and Ushio are bff
Okay newbie admiral here.
Is there any way for me to understand the different combat phases, the optimal equipment to use, what "cut in" attacks are, when ships attack twice, crit or miss, which slots to position my ships into and all that WITHOUT relying entirely on ominous formulas from the wiki that I don't even remotely understand? I read the entire page regarding combat but I did not learn a thing.
Maybe like a video or a guide that explains things step by step using examples instead of just raw formulas? Because as it is I have no idea what I am doing or what my ships are doing.
Anon, it's not that hard to understand how the flow of combat works. Just because the formulas are there doesn't mean you need to completely memorize them and what they entail. Please reread the page.
Will non-rankfags ever get the Nanzan? I guess I could ask the same question about the Keiun but that thing is beyond garbage.
>muh taihou fairy
She deserves it after being quite literally the ugliest girl for 2 years.
What is the average level when people get their fourth fleet?
I have done nothing but grinding 3-2 and use whatever spare resources I had to built BBs, still don't have that last sister. HQ lv 58
>win all of the first pvp's of the day
>second half pvp comes around
>lose every single one
>4-5 last dance
>Only an unscathed boss and chuuha Ru left
>Only 2CA in chuuha
>"It's in the bag"
>Hotel downs Ru, Nagamon halves boss
>All 3CA chokes
What were the fucking odds. I was even forced to bring hotel because I didn't want to bucket my already long list of casualties.
PvP only for this special kind of girl.
I mean she even do a little damage in yasen.
What's the actual gameplay for the Vita like?
I'm starting to feel bad for the ship to debut in it.
made her tag along in 5-4 when I was leveling a few CAs
She is. You'll get her from 30/30/30/30 daily crafting eventually. It's completing 2-5 with the fleet required for that damned monthly quest to unlock the quest(s) for the second catapult that's hard.
Now that the dust has settled can we all agree that summer was a pretty good event?
Superior girl and art.
Does this mean I who started some hours ago can manage to get something out of the upcoming event?
Should I ignore everything else and try to accumulate resources?
I think I can manage 50k resources, considering the daily regen for me is 20k, the remaining 30k would take me 100 expedition 2s which i think it's feasible in 10 days.
Sorry if these are stupid questions but I can't find anything specific on how to go from 0 to be prepared for such an event in such short time, if it is even possible.
The wiki says "natural regeneration of resources (1440 Fuel/Ammo/Steel per day, 480 Bauxite per day" I assumed this meant 1440 of each.
Applying the formula my resource cap is 250x (5+3) which is 2k, 20k in ten days. Again, I assumed this is for each resource.
So 1440 x 10 days plus what I have now makes almost 20k.
Did I miscalculate something? I'm obviously really new to this.
I see, I stupidly thought the softcap was per day too. I see now that it would make no sense, thanks for pointing that out. With this I can't make it to 50k resources in 10 days. Should I try to maximize them anyways at this point? I mean I think this goes without saying but like I have 2 CLs and a bunch of DDs and that's it. Do I really not need anything else?
Thanks for the patience.
I keep getting useless ships like Ise, Mutsu and so on at regular construction, but not a single god damn Sendai is appearing. Already have a boatload of Naka and Jintsuu, but still no Sendai
I'm using 500/30/600/30 followed by a 300/30/300/30. HQ level 31 at the moment and still no Sendai nor 3rd fleet. I do have both Nagatos, all the Kongous, all the Takaos, both Fusou and DD6
Got both Akagi and Kaga at around 15
If you have all the kongo you're literally set in terms of all BB you'll ever need until super late game
just keep doing 30/30/30/30 til you get sendai, don't be that one retard who got z1 before getting 3rd fleet from a few days ago
My Kaga drop record from last year.
>Drop number is relevant
But why are you going on sorties? Are you doing dailies? Leveling? Trying to beat maps?
I don't understand why you're sortieing such a heavy fleet to the point of bleeding yourself dry.
All of the above. I had to replace my BB's and CV's with CA's and one Chitose, whatever she is, because they're fully stocked and I can't afford resupply the bigger ships anymore.
I believe the RNGod is bullying me. Just give me that god damn Sendai already, please.
23. I wanted to get done with BBs first and it wasn't such an efficient plan considering I never really use Hotels. Oh, and Paul Allen is a liar.
In the hindsight it's probably better to go for Taihou first, back when you aren't using bauxite that much.
I nearly creamed myself, that day.
Sparkling ex6 was such a goddamn pain I honestly hope everyone gets Taihou in ~10 attempts and doesn't have to suffer regenerating 5.2-7 k baux every time he builds another Hyahha.
For the longest time I thought I don't need her that much because my CVs we doing fine but Shoukaku convinced me that it's good to have more armored carriers. Getting every other girl helped as incentive to complete the dex too.
Now, this is one of incredibly rare examples when this fad works.
Tomorrow will be my fourth month playing this game. I still don't have all 4 fleets.
Should I just kill myself right now?
I got 4th fleet in 20 days and it's not really a matter of luck because you should get all the ships needed in 3-2 or 2-2. You're most likely playing the game the wrong way or you're not playing enough.
What are you talking about? 500 sorties of 3-2 over 120 days is just a little over 4 sorties per day. If you don't play at least that much this game probably isn't for you considering the time and effort needed to hunt for ships during events.
I've been trying man, I do my dailies whenever possible and have been grinding 2-2 and 3-2 quite a bit. I can't play when I'm at work, but whenever I'm at home, I have the game running in the background and try to play it whenever my fleet is repaired, fully supplied and ready to go
I'm currently waiting for my fleet to restore morale to send it again and waiting for construction to finish so I can lay down new ones.
>grinding 3-2 quite a bit
And how many sorties is that?
To those who are still looking for the Santa Kashima Live2D model, the author just put up the download link in his profile.
I was at dinner with some old friends and showed them Kancolle and how I was trying to get Yamato. I then went home and LSCed her.
I guess the desire sensor took pity on me for once.
I'm fucking blind or is there no way to go from the refuel/repair/upgrade/ect menus straight into sortie/pvp/expedition menu without going through main screen, even though it works other way around?
Getting compass'd to 2 maelstrom nodes. I am not even mad now, just tired. Guess I'll just idle it up until the event.
Final kill Hoppou sure is pain in the ass. Still, better than DD's blowing up at first node with south route.
Maya is better.
I don't know who she is but the image showed up when I was looking for KanColle.
I don't understand why this image was main one.
Ah, that CL from forgotten class.
Sweater with window revolutionized Japan so someone decided to ride on this idea and there are people who want the fun to continue. At this point we should expect new type of window clothing every few months until Area 11 gets bored.
I mean, black version was much better.
Might as well post remaining good ones, there aren't that many of them.
Shut the fuck up, she's sleeping.
Didn't expect it would fit Kongou so well.
And that's it.
Other images either suck or are pretty but the cat theme doesn't fit.
RNG is NOT trolling you.
I'll say it plainly. You are a fucking retard.
You've been told to stop using your heavy ships and to level your DDs, yet you continue wasting resources on 3-2 with Kaga and BBs.
You've been told to invest in crafting Sendai by spamming min recipe, but you waste all your resources on BB recipes despite having all Kongous.
Apparently you are too stupid to understand prioritization. Have fun entering the event with 0 resources, 2 fleets and level 30 destroyers.
You did this to yourself.
>For those who don't have Graf Zeppelin and Mizuho, they will appear in the event.
Nope, dev said Zeppelin will be only for those who does not have her, but they does not say so for Mizuho.
Why is she so cute?
>high tier Akashi and Ooyodo seasonal art
>best promo art
>even Kinugasa looks better
>Mamiya looks better too
Then it's Yuugumo class's turn and it might as well not be there. It's a given that is his least favorite class except Takanami.
It's a small event and it starts on the 10th. There's no way it'll last more than 2 weeks and most people here complete events in the first day. Summer took longer for some people because E-7 wasn't even available on day 1.
She has three points of yfp over Haguro or Myoukou. 1 point of normal fp over Haguro and 3 over Ashigara. Yes, that counts as minimal considering all Myoukous already did CA jobs great.
Fusou has 20 firepower more than Ises and much bigger plane slot. Now that is something.
I think I'll go with Fusou in the end since BBVs can fit into transport fleets.
It wasn't worth using them last time, but who knows what shit they have in store now?
Plus I already have like 7 K2 CAs
Exactly. Fusou fills the niche. Having strong Zuiun 12 also helps with boosting AS so that you can put more bombers on CVs on normal maps. And even if you don't use Fusou during the event, Tones or AVs will definitely appreciate better plane. For support fleets 41cm proto is easily comparable in usefulness to T22K4.
Nobody cares how much a boats stats improve by unless she's needed for routing. They only care whether she's stronger or weaker than other ships of her class and Choukai is only a tiny bit stronger than the Myoukous. She should be one of the last BPs to give away unless you really want her equipment.
No, it's you who has problems with English. We're talking about who should get blueprint first, no "in what way blueprint affects specific girl". Saying that Choukai PROVIDES minimal increase in power is absolutely correct. You would be right if I said "receives" etc.
>Just look at them.
>One of them gives useful eq and has huge advantage over other ships of her class.
>Other gives okay eq and provides minimal increase in power.
Looking at your post, you're either saying Choukai give a small damage bonus over Fusou or Choukai's kai form. If you mentioned Myoukou then it would have been perfectly fine.
>calling the cutest BB(V) shit
You should scuttle yourself.
