why are you doing this to me OP
There is surprisingly not enough dying fairy art. They are always shown doing fairy things.
Plane fairies are invincible, and will just float back to base if the planes are downed
Plane experience was explained to be the fairy's attachment to their planes
I also would like to add that I'm an accomplished faerie researcher, with experience in 2 complete viewings of jintai and a wealth of niconico studies
I'm at 500, but he should at least mask his gaijin ass and change the message. It's embarrassing.
No, you'll be stuck in that map of yours forever
It's going to happen and you can't stop it.
She was enjoying the show from the sidelines. Why join in when Evilzuki was worse?
Twitter picture changed to best CL, this is the battle
>Twitter picture changed to best CL
What are you talking about? Their twitter pic isn't Sendai.
Does he have the will to corrupt her himself? Will she be fuckable?
Kancolle Autumn Event will start on the 18th of November this month. This operation is not a large scale operation like Summer Event but this Autumn Event's main operation is using combat ships to the southern islands for a "Transport Operation", and also the naval battle that occurs because of this.
You girls, are a disgrace.
This fucking quest is imposible.
first CL class to complete k2
first CL class to complete Abyssal transformation
But Naka-chang has been an abyssal for a while.
I think someone recommended to take 2 CA instead of BB. I did. It gives better routing but no BB. You just need durable and strong CAs, even though Furutaka looks durable and strong.
The same goes for sinking ships, right? So when my girls die they just swim back to base and get some vacation time until I find them new armor, then have to spend time getting used to it again.
KTKM clearly knows Kaiten exists and doesn't want it equipped on her, neither do the devs want to add it and I remember an anon saying the devs said will never add the suicide units.
New girls are different since it only works if no dupes are allowed in the story. It's impossible to have that gameplay mechanic in stories unless it's some sort of comedy where logic doesn't apply. Even the 4koma starts off as Fubuki arriving to the naval base.
Would you want to be a fairy?
You don't have to fly a plane if you're scared, there's always construction or spinning a compass.
Personally, I would like Murrican chic. But let's think about this.
USN: Busy fighting abyssal in the other half of Pacific and Atlantic.
RN: Too busy with Atlantic and Mediterranean.
So... Chink or Slav girl maybe?
>RN: Too busy with Atlantic and Mediterranean.
Not really, unlike MURRIKA which has the other half of the Pacific and part of the Atlantic coasts to guard, the RN has help from the Kriegsmarine, Regia Marina, and the Marine Nationale to deal with their side of the Atlantic and Mediterranean. Hell, the Regia Marina and Marine Nationale probably take care of the Mediterranean by themselves, leaving the north Atlantic and North Sea to RN and Kriegsmarine to deal with.
Assuming the strongest Abyss come from the depths of the Marianas Trench, it would be pretty difficult for American shipgirls to go to Japan, assuming Pear Harbor has been corrupted, which is highly likely. They are not just going to let the Americans pass that easily and the USA is too far away to lend support. The Japanese shipgirls would have to go to them personally or meet up somewhere to take back control of Pearl Harbor and establish a safe link.
>meet up somewhere to take back control of Pearl Harbor and establish a safe link.
This is seriously the most realistic way of getting the USN introduced into kancolle. A bilateral operation carried out by both navies to kick out the abyss from Hawaii and set up a base there again so that the USN can do sorties rather than the west coast of the Americas. Gotta save those aussies.
2013+2 and somefags still think they will add alliance boats
>Italy in charge of being good for anything besides vacations
>USSR didn't nuke japan
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_invasion_of_Manchuria scared the shit out of japs more than nukes ever did.
What's the point of not listing the firepower enemy ships have with guns on the wikia? Shouldn't they at least put their actual firepower in parentheses? It takes far too much work to have to open the gun page and then add it up when you just want a quick look to not do anything with.
Diferent people different tastes. Personally I think Fusou is the definition of a stunning beauty and one of the best wife candidates together with Chitose and Ryuuhou.
Original sprite is shit. Kai Ni is 200% better.
I love >small c guy
There, I said it. I await his posts, often excited in anticipation every time someone writes "Kancolle".
Because it's said that opposites attract each other, I've begun using
As my main password. Thank you for entering my life.
What should I buy for my office next?
If it's not this guy, it might as well be a T head TTK.
>he can't beat it with megane power
What the fuck is going on?
That's what you get for using heavy fleet.
5 runs, 5 kills, 3 buckets per sortie.
I was browsing /艦これ/ yesterday and stumbled upon a 妊娠ス, I decided to check it and then a guy posted this in the middle of the thread.
Do you have any idea of how fucking mad I was?
Just use your CAs. It never took me more than 12 runs with 3-4 CA(V)s. Usually it's 7-9 runs.
Did you use AP Shell on BB and 4-5 torpedo bombers on CVs? Theoretically BB should be on top for first node but Fusou is high level already.
Don't use meme fleet, you're only asking for trouble.
I always put sanshiki on them. And on my CA(V)s as well. I tried 2 BB 3 CA(V) 1 CV and 1 BB 3 CA(V) 2 CV, and both failed.
You mean I should be putting AP shell on my BBs instead?
Do you hate resources or something?
Yes. With Sanshiki battleships suck, mere 50% double attack rate. If you give them AP Shell, it jumps to ~70% chance of special attack. It helps vs Ta/Ne on the way and on boss node because they have higher chance of killing Ru Kai, Ne-elite or transport in one shot.
If you put battleship as flagship she'll be guaranteed to start the second shelling on first node and third node, meaning you have to survive one Ta attack at most. With carriers killing two enemies on average, the chance of targeting Ta at the start of battle is decent too so you want to make sure it dies when targeted - single attack might fail to disable Ta.
The only time I caught chuuha on the way this month was during final kill, when Nu hit Ashigara for 30+ in air strike (how the fuck).
As for damage vs boss with AP Shell, see pic related. A shame that Prinz, Kaga and Shoukaku didn't crit, it would have been a day time clear.
It works fine for me, I don't care, use whatever you want.
The 2CV composition has a super high success rate and is the superior composition during the initial form. I only use the 1CV comp for final form to bring sanshiki users.
This one is probably the closest to the one you're using.
I might be able to improve on the plane setup with the cranes. I'm not too hopeful though.
Nah, I lost count after the 20th failure with 3 CA(V)s.
I think I can do away with the BBV this time. I'll have to see.
Is it for contact?
>I don't get it. Why aren't you using Murata on Kaga 46slot?
I figured that doing that was only for event setup. Well I can try it.
>Actually the better question is, why are you using her when Zuizui is available?
My cranes are level 90+ but I only got around to remodelling Shoukaku Kai 2 last week. Haven't gotten around to Zuikaku yet.
I'll have them ready by the time I next attempt 4-5. As well as the new planes.
She's a rough and tough defender, she'd never do that unlike other girls who are not to be named.
This conflicting information.
Yeah, if I can even fucking reach there in the first place.
It's more about disabling Ta which isn't likely with red T and you get scratched a lot in red T meaning there's higher rate of chuuha/taiha on later nodes. Red T on boss also means that Ru Kai is almost untouchable.
Saiun also provides contact bonus. And no, bomber isn't worth more.
Saiun has no negative effect on the route, so what was the point of your post? Why did you make it?
>It's more about disabling Ta which isn't likely with red T and you get scratched a lot in red T meaning there's higher rate of chuuha/taiha on later nodes.
At least I can actually survive the Ta node with red T, you know. Anything else and I go straight home.
>Red T on boss also means that Ru Kai is almost untouchable.
As before, boss node isn't my main concern right now.
>Saiun has no negative effect on the route, so what was the point of your post? Why did you make it?
Red T would reduce chances of Ta hitting my ships to red even with a crit, wouldn't it? A Saiun would remove chances of red T.
It's usually Fusou-class flagship + 3 CA(V) + Taihou + Kaga when I use 2 CV setup. CA(V) are usually Tone-class CAV and either a bobship or Choukai.
And I take it I shouldn't be using line ahead on that node?
I hope Fusou holds an AP Shell.
You should always use Line Ahead unless you want to kill a flagship sub.
I meant Ta's formation. On first node it's LA or DL and on third it's DL or Diamond.
Not like it matters much since the Fusou-class rarely aims Ta in the first shelling phase either. All Ta needs is one hit on my CV.
Didn't really keep track on Ta's formation on the 3rd node, I rarely ever got there to begin with. On the first node it's the same regardless of double line or line ahead, at least it seems that way.
She should aim at her ~25% of the time and Ta shouldn't taiha your ships consistently. She only reaches 130 damage in doukousen line ahead. Hankousen or double line bring it down to 104. Hankousen DL is just 83 damage - and Saiun tranforms red T into hankousen. Ta scoring a crit in positive engagement should trigger sinking protection on the other hand, resulting in chuuha. Good CA(V)s have 77-82 armor and 56+ HP so they should be just shouha or chuuha more often then not.
I guess it comes down to levels and your ships not avoiding enough.
I'm guessing Ta gets good rolls against armour when not critting and poor rolls against armour when critting, and either way it'll put my girls into taiha.
>level 80+ isn't enough for CAV for 4-5
Well fuck me.
But they are. I clear 4-5 every month with CA(V)s under lv90. This was from last month, and all of my ships are in their lv80s.
Just use Chitose-class or Mizuho for that.
So it's just me after all.
Well I'll come back with an improved plane setup. If it still fails I'll just stick to bruteforcing with 5 BB 1 CV or something.
Haguro saves the day again. Behold her glorious victory in night battle.
Fucking nice, prime waifu material.
Except for all the ones that are clearly Abyssal versions of Japanese ship girls. And the CLTs which never existed in the USN. And that Tanaka himself said USN ship girls would be added someday, meaning they aren't Abyssal ships. We've fought a lot of American stand-ins necessary to recreate historical battles, but that doesn't mean they're exclusively American or that Americans are exclusively Abyssal.
I'll actually be real salty when if/when they finally dump the Allies vs Axis theme. I didn't come here to lead an international fleet.
Then again I was salty about both foreign ships and marriage so it's probably because I'm an unpleasable faggot.
>or that Americans are exclusively Abyssal.
Most node names explicitly reference PacCom. Some maps even had full ABDA abbreviation thrown in, in latin letters no less. It's really fucking stupid to think that Abyss are not Allied forces.
>Except for all the ones that are clearly Abyssal versions of Japanese ship girls.
>And the CLTs which never existed in the USN
It's fiction like all the events. And the game need challenge enemy
Artist doesn't have new idea and reuse available arts and it's never confirmed. Unlike the "ADBA" fleet and maps with US base boss
Cash grab, arbitrarily extended grind, polygamy, wish-fulfillment crap.
Their presence is the death knell for any Shinto-based mythological theory that you might have been able to ascribe to a ship girl.
In the UN forces, French call themselves French, and Itialian call themselves Italians. On the whole, the "UN" doesn't have a nationality. Happy ?
Overall, I just don't get you guys. There's elements pointing to US Abyss, while there's others pointing to not-US Abyss. Why do you want it to be either of those? Can't it be neither, for fuck sake? It's not even important.
Nobody is saying that they don't represent Allied forces. This argument was about people saying Allied ship girls will never be added to the game. Every time I've seen this stupid argument the goalposts have been moved to this exact position. While there are Allied Abyssals, there have also clearly been Axis Abyssals. They aren't exclusive to any one nationality.
I guess it just show the poor intelligence of posters of this thread. This hate for nuanced positions and open possibility while they carve for things being 100% one thing or another, or exclusiveness and clear cut fact is strongly correlated with both poor knowledge and intelligence.
First, Allied forces were confirmed for being Abyss. Second, how many Allied ships switched sides and joined Axis side?
> Most of abyssal fleets have generic names
TF16 was referenced last even for fucks sake.
T32 to T32 Kai, maybe? You might also want a max T13 Kai for DD AACI. Not sure how useful max T22 Kai 4 will be since chances are good that it'll be superceded by T33 Kai in the future or something.
FuMO goes best with Maya, unless you want to max a T21 Kai.
No way I'm going to their forum.
>Resources: 806 buckets, 114k fuel, 102k ammo, 150k steel, 60k bauxite.
>Aiming for a medium/hard mode mix.
K E K
I'd be aiming for hard for all modes even if I had half of those resources. And even if summer 2015 was the upcoming event.
There's absolutely no excuse for going hard for all stages for autumn.
If you're so adamant about official stuff, abyssals calling themselves whatever isn't quite as official as it can gets. Tanaka (and devs in general) is the most official you can get, and they denied it. Allied kanmusu were also officially, in this sense, promised.
Maya's AA cut-in is the strongest m8.
>I thought AACI chance was a constant linked with the API call number.
Apparently things have changed since then. The listed mechanics always keep changing anyway.
>Also, why use so many screws on a maxed T21 kai when they could have been spent on much better things?
No idea, maybe he's just that rich. But I can understand why.
I have the bare minimum of upgraded equipment for everybody. The FuMO wasn't going to cut it when something superior exists. Plus, I only need 1 of the air radar, so it wasn't a big deal.
Keep it activated at all times and do some meaningful things (i.e. not x-y-A farming). It should be finished quickly.
Sparkling ships to try harder maps like 4-5, 6-3 or anything you might still need to do is a way to do it too.
Better than using the native function in kc3
3 or 4 SS for Orel?
I save 4 fuel and 6 ammo each run with 3 subs compared to 4, but I can sink more enemies with 4, meaning I take less damage, get my quests done faster, get a better score and thus save time on fatigue, repairs and shuffling subs around.
9 months later and still no sign of her existence. Who is your most elusive drop, TTK?
Asagumo I guess. She's the last one who dropped for me during Spring and she was the last one I was missing at the time. New summer drops were all gotten during the event. Outside of that, I'm only missing Taihou.
>lewding the pyon
Such people shouldnt be allowed to breath.
Always nice seeing different max leveled shipfus.
Also disgusting harem shitter, but If fluffy dragon is one of them then its fine.
Cloudy funbags to remain relevant
Oh no no, this one tastes amazing, next to syntha-6 chocolate milkshake. They really do taste like milkshakes, especially when mixed with milk
Avoid dymatize if it's taste you're concerned about. They're excellent stuff in price-to-protein, but most flavors taste like absolute chalk dust
I haven't even touched this. It's complicated.
I had a dream in which Atago rejected me.
Nagato has been with me for 2 years and helped me get throught a lot (She's my ID 64 even).
Bismarck was my first LSC on my first try with her recipe and I like her a lot.
I'll stay as the dense MC.
