I really hope Takanami becomes relevant again
It's the fate of every Yuugumo class. They are too rare for people to care, there is no kai 2 to bring attention, despite having solid designs, Fujikawa is still overshadowed. They cross the border between niche and hipster, it's tragic.
Feels good, I would have done the world 4 weekly if the event was not days away.
Why even do it if you're not going to use subs? The end reward of the whole quest chain ends up being a meagre 2 screws. If you don't use subs you consume more resources than the quests reward usually.
Who's your favorite shipgirl?
Mine is Hyuuga, she's also my wife. Remember that polygamy is a sin
Do you feel weird knowing that your shipdaughters are being molested constantly in pvp? I don't like thinking about how my waifu is being taiha'd somewhere while some other player watches her clothes fall off.
For those that use Yuubari's KCV, can you tell me why did entirely become Grabacr07's in the credits/version info after the update to 22.214.171.124?
Everything links there and the resource/drop/development/ logger is removed too. Notification doesn't work anymore when the game is mute too.
>Ah, you're probably another idiot using subs.
What about that is stupid?
I only need an A (apparently) so 4 SS will easily score that while taking basically no damage and with a super low consumption. There's no better way of farming it.
Why do you even want her? She's fucking useless.
Just play normally and she'll pop up eventually. I don't know how many Houshous I've scrapped and I don't even care to remember where I get her from because she's so worthless. Not to mention her VA fucking sucks at her job and her voice doesn't even match the image she's supposed to portray.
So is cookie injection ded forever? What do? I haven't played in a while.
3.x to 4.x merge was impossible due to Grabacr's questionable actions on his repository, everything is being re-implemented from scratch…
Logging plug-in will be available very soon (it's already ported, just has some bad decisions implemented).
Are there any tests or do you guys notice a substantial difference when using 20 guns on CLs, which apparently give overweight penalties? I haven't ever bothered to upgrade the 15.2 guns and wondering if I should for the coming light cruiser heavy event.
Just go with OTO 152.
Firepower and 'fit bonus' accuracy!
Alternatively just go with upgraded 20.3cms. Even if nothing else is true, at least you can believe in the stars being better than base 15.2cms.
There's been some testing but nothing extensive. So far tests have shown that 20.3 has either no penalty or might have 0/-1/-2 depending on the classes. Basically just 20.3 your CLs unless you're in combined fleet and/or sniping DDs.
He can't do ex38 with those levels, only ex 37
>light cruiser heavy
But we already have heavy light cruisers.
Milf Kasumi is most excellent
Off by one, you'll make it some day.
>LSC wasn't that hard in my case
It was. For me it was like:
Taihou - 8 attempts
Musashi - first attempt
Yamato - crafted accidentally instead of Bismarck
Bismarck - around 15 attempts or so
I'm an euro, though. Ancient Chinese memes may be right.
S-rank certain node to prevent boss health regeneration for 24 hours? Since he wants it to be easier to understand, this node will be marked with an arrow, an exclamation mark and will be shaped like horned Tanaka's face.
Not bad, I'm euro as well.
Taihou: 2 attempts
Musashi: Crafted while aiming for Bismarck
Bismarck: 5 attempts
Shioi: Crafted while attempting Yamato
Yamato: 9 attempts
I've also gotten 4 Akitsumaru and 10 Maruyu afterwards.
Oh are we doing this?
Taihou: 1st attempt
Musashi: 1st attempt
Bismarck: 10+ times but nothing yet
Dropped off E7
Yamato: 20+ attempts but still no go
My luck is extremely skewed in both directions.
It took me 182 tries to build a Bismarck. The funniest thing is, I'm from Neumarkt. Euro luck is a lie.
Autumn event will be based on a certain island supply operation
High level DDs and CLs will be key
New ships will include another training cruiser and a DD that sank in that region
Large foreign ship planned
New boss planned
Mentioned by >>14330019
Kidou butai will be used in some map(s)
Speculation that lookouts, sonar, and searchlights improved fishing were apparently right.
Correct if wrong.
Reminder that there is no need to stockpile for this event, go LSC right now. I'm sure you'll get the ship you want this time!
Well fuck you too Tanaka, easier event my ass. Marking the debuff nodes won't make this boss gimmick any less annoying and I bet it's going to be on another random compass map too.
>High level DDs and CLs will be key
Aw fuck me. I had to concentrate on my CA after the last event. Only Sendai and AKBM are over 80, and 78 Yukikaze is my highest DD.
Time for easy modo.
>hit these random nodes so X will happen causing the boss to debuff
Imagine if the random nodes will have BB Hime as flagship of one and Elite Ne as flagship as another. And imagine that if you sink them enough times the escort BB Hime and Elite Ne will just not be there anymore, leaving a 4 ship boss node. Or maybe they would get replaced by DDs.
I think that would be a pretty interesting use of the mechanic, although obviously it would probably be too strong if you could literally remove a BB Hime from the boss node.
Either it will be a completely useless addition like making the nodes you have to hit even more obvious than they already were or something semi useful like showing the debuffed armor/modified critical damage value at the boss so that you don't have to do endless placebo runs again.
The ASW damage formula makes her really high ASW stat pretty worthless. She will only hit a little higher than any other CL with ASW equipment, and she will flat out hit lower than Yodo and Melon.
But I do.
I just like her kai Christmas CG more than her kai ni one.
Probably, she's portrayed as very loyal everywhere.
Remember that easy ASW event map with a black wo shooter and then a boss sub with diagonal formation?
People just brought damecon against the wo since the subs hit nothing. It is going to be this easy
Ashigara is a goddess.
She just wants security for a dangerous job. It's not her fault for the way she is.
Only Yonehara-san is strong enough to win the wolf's heart.
It's always been set to that.
I don't know if it's something to do with my connection. Never had problems with my internet before. And my ISP is in America so they'll allow JP address if I try VPN. But that doesn't work anyways as I've tried all methods
Ed draws TKO so well. Dem eyes are so nice
Kai Ni never ;_;
A new BB for the Extra Operation. Water Oni doesn't cut it anymore.
Air defense water oni for niizuki
They did say they were bringing back the gimmick, didn't they?
Kanmusus are like Mikus, even under the same name there's like a million different ones.
>Negates all the appeal of those breast slits
That's just outright disgusting
Has Oguchi done any of the Abyssal designs recently?
Don't recognize his style in many of the new ones, and I miss the alien-ness the earlier designs had.
Though it's possible that I'm just blind.
People still didnt learn how to use fucking twitter?
Thats fine since they have only one use anyway.
If she was more like Danbo's rendition, maybe I would like her a little more.
Thats gay, why would you lewd a daugtheru?
The hint is in the filename.
No such thing in the kanverse, nanomaterials maybe.
Her voice and especially the intro line made it even worse. I never felt that appropriately belittled by anyone of the abyss before, she has the evil dominatrix down to a tee. Masochists must have had a field day.
No one likes you
And your skirt is terrible
I miss her.
I wonder if she misses me.
Will I see her in two weeks time?
The stomach and underboobs are exposed, while the sides are clothed. But it's one of life's great mysteries if the top of her tits are covered.
Round 2 begins soon. Get ready for trouble
and make it double.
But did you know node C gave a debuff as well? Tanaka was laughing at us for not figuring that out until after the event. Also it wasn't clear that you needed to S rank a node for the debuff to take effect.
The collar of her jacket looks open to me, so I would guess that aside from her metal bra she's naked up there too.
I'm more curious about how her skirt works. I'm still not sure if it's connected to the jacket or some frilly skirt like appendix of her panties.
>people STILL overcomplicate her clothing
She's all flesh and pure white herself. The jacket is held shut by the bra and panties, and the top of her breasts are uncovered.
Nobody actually knew it's one of the spots for debuffing, rather just a placebo, and wiki didn't include the C node disbelieving it had no effect either. I wish the japs or historyfags figured out that the real-life SN operation involved on cutting off the transport supplies , which means we have to cut-off AA Hime's supplies too somehow.
I don't think that musing about where the skirt is connected to is overcomplicating it that much. Aside from that personal curiosity of mine I think that her outfit is actually pretty straightforward.
It only seemed complicated to people before they realized that she was wearing a jacket.
Lies and fucking slander. I kept my first 48.
I'm going to K2 them all, and make NKB48. All the Naka I receive after the original 48 are used to upgrade the other Naka. I will never scrap a Naka. Her voice is wonder of the universe, and should be treasured by admirals everywhere. I fell in love at first sight, and the other ships I use mirror that same genki attitude and enthusias, like Nenohi, Murasame, RJ, and hopefully soon, Prinz.
I don't get why people keep saying this. The only important thing Prinz has going for her is luck, which if you give any other CA Maruyu they will become better. Myoukou is already just one set of maruyu from completely outclassing her.
Poor girls got the shortest end of the stick.
The only ones I consider worth filling with Maruyus are -insert favorite girl here-, Kitakami, Ooi, Abukuma, Yuudachi and Bismarck, the rest aren't strong/unique/gimmicky enough for me, have already high-luck girls with similar stats in their class or a mix of both.
Almost everyone does that, if you think calling Prinz the best CA is crazy then you're just a pedant.
In the bow of the boat there is tubular waterproof hangar. The plane is stored folded to reduce space required, sometimes wings of the plane were detachable instead of usual folding mechanism to save space. To launch the plane submarine surfaced, opened up the hanger, the plane is unfolded, assembled and launched. All planes carried by submarine had floats to pick up the plane. It's not rocket science, Jim.
I'm still refueling my sanity from last event. The one event I skimp out on stockpiling and I get assblasted by a single map. It's a shame since that map had the best abyssal. Still a miracle I managed to finish it all on hard.
Scouting is crucial to successful operations. Submarines had no scouting masts and couldn't see beyond 4-5 kms on surface. There's no better way to scout than to use a plane. Beaming radio intel from patrol boats usually alerted the enemy too. Sending around shitload of subs to patrol known routes used by the enemy instead, what Kriegsmarine and USN did, works, especially if you have intel services capable of decrypting enemy communications to know those routes. IJN had neither the numbers nor itel, and focus on sinking high value targets like actual warships dictated completely different strategy. I-400 class is another story, mind you.
Overall the technology was too unrefined in that time, but the general idea was sound and solid.
Is it normal for my fuel situation to be abysmal early on? I always seem to have 1k+ resources except fuel which doesn't often get above 500 ever. My normal sorties are generally 1-2 CLs and 4 DDs, occasionally bringing a CA when attempting to clear a new area.
Is there a faster way to farm fuel aside from Exploration 5, pre-world 2?
Also, does anyone have experience using CE's speedhack to speed up some processes in game?
It's normal. Fuel is the early game challenge. Expedition 5 is your best friend for now, but unlock the other fleets and expedition 21 to help.
Speedhacks are a bad idea now. >>14332546
> mfw Roma dropped on my first E5 S rank in spring.
Yes they were.
Try to play any subsim that doesn't have instant contact(Aces of the Deeps for example, my favourite). You'll see for yourself how "inefficient" a pair of eyes in the sky could be.
Nah, I only got June, October, and December issues. I usually don't buy them unless I know there's more info than on this issue, but since it was at the end I couldn't check in the preview how many pages there were.
Hiei and Kirishima clearly aren't and Haruna only appears to be because she's quiet and pretty - but that's all there is to her. Sure, Kongou doesn't fit the word "elegant" either but I'd dare to say she's closer to it than her lovely imoutos.
Kongou has the elegance of a bulldozer, always whining and shouting. Rather, her sisters are more elegant by default, though that's not saying much. Drinking tea is her only elegant trait but her sisters can do that too.
Elegant ladies don't swear or loudly proclaim their undying live for you at inappropriate times. From a traditional point of view doormat Haruna wins this by a mile. Bongo can only score with drinking tea english style.
I don't want to play the oldfag, but I feel posts in these thread used to be more meaningful.
Now we're just like "which toehoe would you hold the second smallest finger while eating rotten oranges off her left ass-cheek".
If she doesn't openly satellite her slutiness to the rest of the world 24/7, as in wearing sluty clothes and slobbering all over random people whenever she gets the chance in public, she would still count as elegant. An elegant slut at least.
This and it'll pick up when the event starts anyway, it always does.
This isn't really the place for verifying the stuff that really needs to be ironed out though, the only current content left to confirm needs a more organized setting than /jp/.
More accurate formulas for accuracy and evasion, support fleet stuff and all. Or maybe everything is crystal clear and I'm behind the times.
Check this one's page number, retard.
I'm all for allied ships if it means more actual redheads.
Especially if it's in the heavier classes so that I can field a whole fleet of redheads in the future.
Nah, it was always the same, at least since the tread started to be on board non-stop instead of weeks, days between the threads. Grass was greenier and all that jizz. I can rant for hours about ships' fates but who would be interested in history? Would those faggots who kept spaming Warspite be interested in that she was hit by 2 torpedoes from U-48, then under Schultze, and only faulty detonators on german torpedoes saved her? No, they want redheads and OP RADAR. Just like before they stamped Yahagi as useless trophy ship not worth grinding for.
Jokes on you, as someone who loves redheads and history I would actually like both.
The most apologetic carrier the game has ever seen.
Warspite spammers could at least give credit to other potential British ship girls, it's like no one wants HMS Illustrious
