Whose dick do I have to suck to get this trash out of the crafting pool?
>was the difference from the hundred other web games/mobage
Mind Canthis is the crappy, otaku pandering, browser game with more gameplay and less p2w.
I don't think Kancolle is the first to be F2W, there probably were others before it that tanked hard because it's not a viable way to earn income. The popularity is pretty much keeping the game alive.
I meant more that I had never heard the term until now, less that kancolle is the first F2W game I'd seen. But good job reading my mind since I didn't actually mention the game in my post, I can't think of a browser game like this I've played before that wasn't legit P2W.
Did people kill each other over it? That's bullshit, she's booming with popularity and they pull this stunt?
They've got a wide variety of artists, and somehow manage to make them work well together. They all feel consistent and aren't jarring, but aren't repetitive and have something for everyone.
They put a lot of thought into the concepts, too, mixing in historical references and giving them enough personality hints for doujins to run with. That level of effort might be taken for granted in other media, but it's exceptional among browser games where shovelware dominates the market, so KanColle looks better by comparison.
The point is "F2W" was just "normal" until mobile games came along. Shareware was just F2P games that didn't rely on corporate investment to get made.
>Womotte "ship this" running all server groups maintenance and update completion of tomorrow [2/10 (water)] implementation, winter event 2016: Limited waters [sortie!

>noun 1. first lunar month
The lunar year starts February 8, 2016. You should've seen this coming.
Commissioned in December, 1942.
>In October 1944 Hatsuzuki was part of the Northern Force commanded by Admiral Ozawa Jisaburo, in the Japanese attack on the Allied forces supporting the invasion of Leyte. On 25 October, in the Battle off Cape Engaño, she was sunk by US cruiser-destroyer group, while covering the rescue of survivors of the aircraft carriers Zuikaku and Zuihō by Wakatsuki and Kuwa.
Maybe the brown-haired fairy.
Look at their hairstyle.
Why do people equip main gun x2 + recon plane x2?
Why not equip main gun x2 + recon + radar? Gives you better stats and you still get artillery spotting and the recon buff. What is the purpose of the second recon plane?
Yes and no. Total fleet LoS contributes to the overall Artillery Spotting chance of the fleet, but equipping surface radars on ships will increase their DA chance much more significantly than simply stacking whatever LoS equips you can get. Radars > Recons, always.
What matters is the type of the surface radar in question, since merely equipping it will provide an additional bonus to the ship's Artillery Spotting rate. T32 radars are the best you can get in that regard (biggest rate boost).
Terrible mic handling, would not hire.
She has a wonderful and caring big sister.
There is lots of things we don't know. Why does Kirishima love microphones? Why does Kazagumo have a tie? Why are Ayaki ships futuristic looking? Do glasses really equal power? How does Rensouhou-chan take a shit?
I'm sure nothing bad could possibly happen
Well, I guess that's why you're not meant to do these around this time.
There are people without Kamo and 3 Taitei-chan, how can they live like that?
It's a sad way to be.
Yeah I'd love to see a scenario where an AV loaded with 3 flying boats is viable.
Event reward. Akitsushima nets you the other two from her stock equipment.
He meant where was the third one in that picture. Also two were rewards, she only gets one at Kai.
The thing is so cool, yet so useless stuck on a useless ship. Just image Hyuuga being able to use it.
It was actually a really great sub-hunter (at least in one of its iterations), better than its stats in the game would suggest. I still keep hoping that eventually we'll get upgraded Taitei-chan at some point, but I do get the impression that Akitsushima was only ever meant to be a trophy ship.
DesDiv4 is cute.
Huggykaze is cute.
We just need a nice map where you can only bring DDs and AVs and the LOS requirement is insanely high.
They really need to add Taitei-chan kai ni upgrades to reflect her amazing real life stats.
>The light carrier (hull classification symbol CVL) was a similar concept to escort carriers in most respects, but were capable of higher speeds to allow operation alongside fleet carriers.
>Most often built on a commercial ship hull, escort carriers were too slow to keep up with the main forces
Taiyo, one of four ocean liners converted into CVE escort carriers: 18,116 tons standard, 591 feet long, with 23 aircraft and 4 spares. Installed power: 25,200 shp from 4 water tube boilers. Speed: 21 knots. Range: 6,500 to 8,500 nmi.
Ryujo, a true CVL: 8,000 tons standard, 590 feet long, with 48 aircraft. Installed power: 65,000 shp from 12 water tube boilers. Speed: 29 knots. Range: 10,000 nmi.
As you can see, Taiyo can't compare to RJ's slim, thin figure. With all that useless fat, she can only find room for half as many planes. Of course, sailors might have something to say for the luxurious hull of a former ocean liner, but who cares about curves when there's a war to fight?
Bono just cares about you, thats all
Don't tell Ooi about this
Maybe that part-time job was a bad idea after all. She should just sit around the base until she's need or something.
What does your final stockpile look like?
Hoping I can get all the ships I want by just sitting through kuso mode
Still have time to build a little more, but I fully expect Tanaka to rape my face since I only have yodo, Ise and Hyuuga. Still, Akizuki class being reward is a godsend.
I still believe I can brute force a mememetal with this many buckets. Its only 3 maps, how hard can it be.
I didn't really have much reason to use her since I have plenty of CA and not too many slots. Didn't give a shit about the quest either.
I'm expecting a bucket-intensive event so I've been running 2 and 4. The fuel is suffering, but that should be enough for farming Mizuho. There's no room for ridiculous resource sinks like Summer E6.
Practically nothing much else I can do, might as well call it "final".
Nothing much else I can do except higher levels
Which god should I pray to for good RNG? I'm still mad about Graf last event.
I hate Idlecolle so much. I want to rank, farm and level ships so bad.
Not final at all, but close.
I'll probably break 170k fuel if the first map is as easy as Fall's E1.
This is going to be a walk in the park with Rei-Go fleet.
Not doing your dailies is stupid since almost all of them give devmats. Doing LSC hours before the event is stupid. None of these have anything to do with luck, just your incompetence.
Rei-go fleet are her friends.
it doesnt matter when you lsc, you still need the required amount of tries for your account before the lsc ship appears
also whats so important about event? i never understand why you retards stress event so much
Being able to sortie my true waifu is enough for me.
Because it wasn't until last event when someone like Prinz appeared again.
Unless you want to wait another whole year just for an event ship, it's better you ge them out of the way now and then go back to wasting your resources on failed LSC attempts.
Just because they're the best doesn't mean you have to have them. Your reserve 120mm and Poi guns have been proven effective in any DD/CL maps even without Akashi upgrades since forever.
She had enough of being used as the sacrifice in events. She's going to start a revolution.
>you should have past event drops already
> i never understand why you retards stress event so much
You need to have capitalization and punctuation to succeed at LSC.
Ｒ Ｉ Ｓ Ｅ Ｕ Ｐ Ｄ Ｅ Ｃ Ｈ Ｉ
She has friends, I think.
this game is so good! effort means nothing! it's all luck wow its so fun everyone
I remember when I was as bad as this new group last event with how badly I wanted to get Kashima that I kept coming here and basically namefagging.
Now I just don't post at all since it's much more fun to read the stupid shit other retards post like how I used to.
Between the lack of Yamato, terrible writing, memes, and bad planning, I was expecting a kid who's new to the game, but with money spent and levels like that, there's just no excuse.
Not him, but if the whole thing costs more than 60k on hard I'll be (slightly) surprised.
Bring it on, anyway.
Interesting. So it's possible that an old fag can slack off and thereby be reborn as a new fag?
I wonder how many people hyping this event's difficulty were around for fall 2014. The medium scale event that the devs said all the usual bullshit about and the threads were done talking about 24 hours after it began. There are easy events out there. Even by virtue of just being 3 maps, there's no way you'd spend as much resources as an easy normal sized event.
They never said last event was easy, just slightly easier than summer's. Which is also normal after a big event.
I'm kind of glad and not glad that it's so small.
It means I hopefully have a chance of clearing the event on Kuso difficulty or Normal, but it also worries me since they may be douches and put like 14 nodes in each map.
>but it also worries me since they may be douches and put like 14 nodes in each map.
They could remove the sinking restrictions and make your girls able to die in one hit from full health, or add whirlpools that drain a percentage of your total resources, or have zero routing conditions the whole way through. But anyone who isn't fearmongering or a paranoid newfag shouldn't believe it for a moment. This "Tanaka exists to make your life miserable" joke is getting as bad as "every bit of good advice is one of Wo's lies" did. We're talking about the devs who take years to fulfill their promises. They didn't make a 3 map event because its extra difficult, they did it because they're lazy.
Don't mind me, just posting some nostalgic stuff for shits and giggles
AL/MI was a year and a half ago
I hope none of those things you joke about ever come to be though.
Even if they introduced some God tier thing in an event map that could be obtained even on Kuso mode, I still wouldn't play the event if my ships could sink regardless of Taiha continuation.
Got a crapload of ships in Fall with less starting resources. I'm fairly confident.
I will probably try to do at least medium and if rewards are good enough this time hard.
Depends on how much you can do without K2 Kasumi.
How is gakada's KCV in comparison to Yuubari's?
I've been using Yuubari's since basically when I started playing the game 2 years ago (though dropped off the face of the planet halfway through etc.), so the alternative I've tried using like KC3Kai was too different and I couldn't be bothered adjusting to it.
Bloody hell, OMD doesn't work for Comptiq on EBJ. Guess no rips.
>Haven't visited /jp/ since last event
>Haven't logged in since last event
So what's new guys? I only saw Kasumi KN and shigu shitposting
New record for me, usually I save the sortie weeklies for saturday.
How do I install the battleinfo plugin in Yuubari's KCV? It says it comes bundled already but it isn't and I tried installing it myself manually but ends up as an unloadable plugin, saying something like " can't load 'Grabacr07.KancolleViewer.Composition.IToolPlugin' and can't load 'MetroRadiance.Controls.MetroWindow' "
Did that but it still says it can't load 'MetroRadiance.Controls.MetroWindow'
Also, weird how that seems closer to work when the installing instructions said "SwfFormat.dll を KanColleViewer.exe と同じディレクトリに放り込んで下さい。
ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll を KanColleViewer.exe と同じディレクトリに放り込んで下さい。"
It's the battle result one, shows the battle info like you can see in this image as soon as the battle starts.
Because Yuubari's KCV uses a different folder structure from the original nip KCV. 4.2.0 should automatically get the latest battleinfo plugin but if it doesn't work you can always use the 4.1.7 version.
To be honest I only want it to avoid random defeats when sparkling and/or doing orel while alt-tabbing.
Well, I guess I can live without that plugin and maybe he will notice it and update a hotfix soon.
