Hints and Advice

  • Make sure your fleet is prepared in all departments (Ex. Do not neglect your AV, SS, and/or AO).
  • Make sure to prepare a large amount of resources.
    • Give at least 1 month of time to start stockpiling your resources.
  • Make sure to prepare a good amount of Aircrafts with good stats, especially with large range for Land Base Aerial Support and for your Aircraft Carriers (Ex. Do not neglect your Skilled Aircraft Conversion Monthly Quests as they give good aircrafts and are excellent to use in Land Base Aerial Support).
  • Do not jump into the Event on Day 1 if you aren't a Frontliner. Wait for the Frontliners to gather/publish confirmed fleet compositions and branching rules for each Event Maps. Be patient.
    • Some Information may turn out to be false or half-confirmed so please be patient until all information are verified first.
  • Most important advice: Keep your sanity high.

New Ships/Equipment

  • Escort Carrier (Taiyo?)
