It'll probably die in like 2-3 years when someone else makes something that mimics it or is somehow better than it.
Or when all the artists get sick of it and don't want to make money anymore.
Also is Akitsushima any good, I kinda want to get her solely for the art, but if she's shit then I don't know if I should put the effort in.
>Also is Akitsushima any good
Taitei-chan is the strongest!
3-2a is good for farming steel with subs, right?
I need to get ready for the event.
Does the drop rate of ships change between worlds/maps/nodes? The wikia (in the drop list) makes it seem like every ship has her own rarity and that it is the same everywhere, but I don't see it expressly stated or gainsaid anywhere.
You have to input another string in the console (it's in the same wikia page I think), then refresh the page. Took me a couple of refresh/closing and reopening the browser for them to show.
I see you want to fuck her a lot.
I think I'll try medium at least.
Is the resource ratio okay like this? Someone said fuel was most important so I focused on that
Resources don't matter for clearing. You just need the minimum equipment and enough high level ships for fleet locking. There are even people who start events at 0 resources on purpose. I wouldn't suggest neglecting bucket stockpiling though.
So what are the goals in events?
From what I understand there will be some event only maps which drop ships only available in the event.
So should I focus on farming the ships? Or should I prioritize trying to clear the last boss on easy? Anything else to do during events?
Hey, I want to fuck her too. It's just that her two sisters are a bit more exciting.
Judging by previous event, I'm not ready for farming whole set of Maruyu.
Focus on getting ships.
Usually at least two ships are rewarded for clearing certain maps.
So if the last boss has a good ship reward (like Teruzuki) you should focus on doing him, if it's some worthless DD like during the Fall event you should focus on farming nodes where good event ships drop.
On the sortie page, a new world will appear at the bottom. This one will probably have 3-4 maps with unique new bosses, stricter compass requirements, and special rewards for clearing maps. For your first time, I'd advise waiting a few days for people to figure out the best way to clear maps.
Clearing is more important than farming, since some of the equipment rewards might never be available again and some of the new ships could take up to a year to come back. You can get all new ships on easy and most will come from clearing maps, but some might be drop only. Don't expect a lot of new ships this time though. A new Akizuki will likely be the reward for clearing the final map. You should definitely farm too, since events come with high drop rates, but wait until we find the good spots.
46cm/ap shell recipe, repairs for 5-4. Don't run any expeditions that give steel and I don't scrap my BB. I don't have to farm much outside of event stockpiling but since getting to 100k+ takes less than a week of farming I don't see why I would change my expeditions from pure ammo, fuel and buckets.
So are Nagato, Mutsu, the Kongous and Akagi, yet I don't sortie them because I'm still too low level to have them actively in my main fleet.
I did try sortieing 6BB just for laughs.
I have both Nagatos, both Fusous, Ise and Hyuuga and all the Kongous, just hit HQ36
Yeah, I'm still trying to get my first one. The game apparently hates me as I keep getting Kongous for drops at 2-4. Just got a Fusou as a drop from 3-2A
>first shot at last dance
>perfect s for days
>get to boss with max health
>ABKM sinks boss on opening torpedo
>yasen seals the s rank
Jesus, literally everything went right this month.
It's pretty spooky, I went 4/4 4/4 5/4 6/5 on EOs this month, only spent 30 buckets combined. I hope it's because I've got the comps down pat after doing them so many times although I'm not counting on it for next month.
No joke, Zintsuu is my favorite
Pretty lucky, I guess. All three Myoukous taihai before even reaching second shelling.
Friendly reminder that if you didn't farm Graf on hard you should literally uninstall your life.
I don't really like the hungry wolf.
Chikuma is the death of my fleet. Never once has she done anything good.
Can't crit and taiha every first node. It's been three events and counting.
You seem upset failing to cheat the system.
4memedals + Zepchan master race reporting in.
>implying people like sendais
Lets just say that only statsfag would keep sendais. They were on my instant scrap list until Tanaka gave them a pity kai2.
I want to marry Houshou but leveling her to 99 is such a huge chore. Why did she have to be so useless in combat.
Anon please, I like Kuma but old Ugume sprites are shit.
All of them except Kuma. I like the way she looks. Sure, legs are terrible but you never see those. Her too big shorts are very nice thanks to the way right part goes up, you can see the movement in her pose. Salute is a great touch, surprisingly rare in this navy game. Ridiculous ahoge is good. Fluffy hair is wavy, enhancing the active feeling.
I like her original sprite more than seasonal.
This way it would be guaranteed her Zuiun hits the light girls. Opening torpedo, two shelling (obligatory Ta escort), closing torpedo and yasen, enjoy six buckets while you chipped 100 HP. Good luck on those seven kills.
It was hard. Sure, easier than E7 but still required double supports if you wanted good chance of S rank and even then killing her wasn't guaranteed. At least she was in diamond so the torp hit only half the time.
I assume this is PvP comp?
Not at all.
Musashi's image popping up instead of Akebono's when doing the scrape daily scared the shit out of me.
Fuck you game, stop that shit already. It was funny during the loadout screen but not here.
Just do the same thing as me.
And get another one right after from 4-5.
You're year in the past.
Mixed cut-in (usually the best option on CAs but only on CAs) goes up to 70 luck when flagship.
It's entirely possible they changed the formula, maybe more than once. Anyway, current meta is 60 luck so I'm very glad my waifu has 52 atm.
Could be theoretical but unrealized Rei-go with Ises being used. Very likely to be combined fleet in such case. Suijou could finally become an option because devs wouldn't want to lock Ises out of delicious +15fp in CF. Upgrade your Pasta guns, you have six days left.
Fuck, this is cute on a new level.
Yeah, I don't have any ASW and am trying to gather myself some dev mats, somehow they dropped to zero not too long ago.
Failing an equipment construction doesn't use a dev mat, right?
>there are people here who are NOT statsfags
Why even play a fucking game? Just go watch anime instead, there is are no stats there and you can still get your cute girls since that is all you care about, shitter.
Tenryuu is my favourite, she's the flagship of my first fleet. Have Nagato, Fubuki, Hibiki, Akagi and Kaga backing her up, swapping the DD's for Atago and Maya every now and then when I need heavier firepower.
I'm going to marry Tenryuu
Okay, so I got my 3rd fleet and to progress towards 4th fleet, I need all the Myoukous. Well guess what ships I've been using to modernize my shit all the time and have ran out of right now.
Yeah, I had this sinking feeling that I should keep them for one reason or another, only have like Haguro. Good thing they're all quite common, aside for Myoukou herself who seems to be a bit more uncommon.
Wow I actually got all of mine faster than you got your first one
What are you doing.
Abukuma in charge of not fucking shit up
Nobody likes to follow her instructions, try Yamagumo instead.
I thank Tanaka every day for blessing us with her heavenly voice.
Yeah, she looks very reliable and hard working.
I want to rank but then I think I'd like to see this level 70 ship at level 90, then I think that level 90 ship would want to be at 96 and whole month passes by while I'm simply doing weeklies.
It's a small and relatively easy event. There's nothing to stockpile for. And if you don't do your monthly stuff now, you're going to have to do it while the event is running. Which means less time for potential farming. You should always get those done before events.
Jesus Christ the explode meme is real.
First node even
I'm sparkling her right now. She doesn't sortie much.
I still can't help but feel bad about it.
Nevermind, going back and looking at my records it was Summer when I sank her.
It was a little bullshit though, a combined fleet map (E2) on a easy shit node where the escort fleet rarely even had a chance to attack. I'm pretty sure she got taiha'd on the node before and then got sunk by the single remaining Tsu because of course, the stars aligned and everyone in the first fleet missed.
I still have her, but I don't remember the last time I used her.
She permanently has first grabs on any DD slot in every sortie fleet.
Why do I see this shitty CV in PvP all the the time?
Why would you put her in your army? She has the shittiest fleet count and shitty stats outside of that too.
I guess if you're really committed to the concept of having a sacrificial BB to save your designated yasen ships, it might work.
But that's only really going to be a problem if you meet a boss with high luck and multiple angry Ri escorts.
She has fairly great stats, especially at K2. Compare her to actually poor CVs like Akagi, or the Unryuu class or Graf.
They're probably farming her for her planes, which are also great.
>shittiest fleet count
Those planes are not farming themselves. It's a free T32.
I put her in my pvp fleet. She's in my pvp preset right now. Clearly her fleet count is high since she's showing up in a lot of fleets. Furthermore, I have a navy, not an army, you cockwhore.
>She has the shittiest fleet count
You mean fleet cunt?
That's regrettable but understandable.
She's so handsome
She's so cute
She's the best
Abukuma is a DORK!
-For near 100% great success, sparkle 4 girls and bring 1.3x the drums required
21: 4 drums across 3 ships
37: 6 drums across 3 ships
38: 11 drums across 4 ships
24: 6 drums across 3 ships
40: 6 drums across 3 ships
And if you take my word for it subs drop way too often in events
Something like 1 outta 5, yeah
50k is legitimately enough for a hard clear unless you're an idiot or terribly unlucky, especially since this event will be smaller.
If you plan to farm, though, the minimum is always as much as you can possibly get. It is entirely possible to go in with 200k and still run out without ever getting the drops you want.
So how does the Vita game work?
If it allowed offline play, I think the cheaters wouldn't hesitate to modify their saves.
That is if the Vita and browser version shared save data at all. The people interested in KC probably already have an account and would hate to lose their progress.
>the results of jewing buckets
A-at least i'm back to 4 digits r-right?
>BB + CV PvP fleet
>they use 46cm
>nothing but scratch
Easy as fuck win.
Just remembered this game is getting released pretty soon.
Gonna be shit.
Screenshots are not exciting.
They should've delayed it further for some more development.
I wanted to believe the god-awful menu UI was just placeholder, but when we see the same shit in multiple screens I'm doubtful.
But hey, this is why I'm waiting instead of preordering.
>Some dumb schmucks paid $90 for a limited edition of this piece of shit
How much did they have to skimp out on the budget when they just reused most of the graphical resources from the browser version?
>A doujin game could probably look better
Weren't there some talks about Kadokawa forbidding any use of the KC material for game purposes? Not sure of how true this was.
Here's for hoping that maybe the game mechanics are a little more enjoyable
Let me dream
I have a page of ships in the high 80's to 90's. How hard was it to get a Prinz from the event? I'm giving up on the idea of getting the 16 inch gun.
One one had we can fire a canon weapon against wikiafags, but on the other hand this labeling makes failure sound better. Couldn't they have called it Shameful Failure mode instead?
Event hasn't even begun, yet why do I feel disappointed already? Is it because we're getting tons of useless shit again? Is it because I have to walk through the burning hellfire to farm the new ships?
Who's worth my first blueprint remodel? I don't have any love interest for any of the girls, so I'm going statfag route.
Yamashiro/Fusou (both or single)
Tone/Chikuma (both or single)
Or Zuikaku, since I don't yet have Shoukaku.
You underestimate me.
Because I Love That Boat!
In the event I don't get below my softcap (hq lv103) this event, should I try and force it to go down with lsc attempts? Only lsc ship I'm missing right now is taihao (taihou_), but it's been so long since i've been under the softcap I don't know how i'll cope. My current resources are 182192/157410/136255/120904/1955
>there are people on this thread who wouldn't send an all sub fleet to this pvp
And where does it say 1.3x drums on the wiki? "With excess drums" Could be anywhere from 1-10 drums.
Where does it give the exact number for excess drums required on the wiki per expedition on the wiki?
How about you actually read the post and the wiki, retard?
Agree with most of it, but Italian ships and Fusous before the Tones?
The high detection value for the Tone-class deserves more consideration, especially for maps that require CAs or disallows BBs.
ABKM > Cranes > Bismarck > Tone-class > ...
Fusous give better eq. I was able to get AS on 4-5 with just two fighters thanks to having Fusou Kai Ni.
Difference in priority between Fusous and Tones is small though, all are great upgrades.
20.3 (2). Armor is nice though.
You're underestimating usefulness of OTO They're by far the best choice for secondary cut-in. They also have unique niche in letting you perform night double attack with three or four of them. It wasn't viable with other yellow guns because their fp was shit.
Not really. 381mm Kai give whole 4 points of firepower more, that's 8 with two guns. Furthermore, they're useful for turn manipulation among BBs without using heavy 46cm. Last one is situational but still something.
Play more. It's useful in many situation. Ever heard of 3-2-A, 4-3 or 5-4-A? Hell, where you even here during Fall event? Secondary cut-in was by far the best option for killing PTs.
No, it wasn't. Two 20.3 (2) at +4 have more power than three yellow 15.5cm. Two base 20.3 (3) have only one point less than three 15.5 cm but can double attack in day.
I was here for the first Fall and way past the point of needing to do any of those maps, so I don't need to optimise beyond standard loadouts. What I mean by 'enough' is that you can do fine with 15.5 even in events. I'm not the guy who's saying there's no benefit to upgrading to better options.
What do you want it to be about? Just general pacific theatre fluff, specific battles or events surrounding major battles or nipps going full mongol horde causing all kinds of mischief before pearl harbor?
Not that guy, but is there a good Midway movie?
Despise the scale of that battle, there is only one shitty movie I could find and since it is called Midway my search results are filled with it.
