    • If you change your difficulty down from a Hard/Medium into an Easier Difficulty, the Gimmick(s) you have already accomplished will be inherited onto the Lower Difficulty you have chosen up to an extent.
    • At certain Maps, if you were in progress of doing Hard Mode, but change your difficulty down to Easy Mode, then there are chances that a New Operation Route may appear in the Map.

New Difficulty: "Very Easy (丁)" ModeEdit

  • Starting from this Event, there will be a New Difficulty known as the "Tei" (丁) Difficulty (Tentatively called "Very Easy" Mode).
    • They are for Admirals who are extremely busy with Life, and hasn't been able to play all that much as well, but wish to clear the Event.

Friend FleetEdit

  • The Friend Fleet is a NPC Support Fleet that appears during the Night Battle Phase of a Boss Battle in certain Event Maps to support your fleet in sinking the Boss.
    • In certain Event Maps when you are against the Main Boss of the Map, when your Fleet enters the Night Battle Phase against the Boss, before your fleet initiates their attack against the Boss, the Friend Fleet will appear to attack the Boss first.

Hints and AdviceEdit

  • 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 yourself 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 Initial Information may turn out to be partially confirmed, so please be patient until all information are completely verified first if you wish for a more smoother time running your Event.
  • Most important advice: Keep your sanity high.

メンテナンス状況:稼働全サーバ群はメンテナンス作業に突入しました! 「艦これ」稼働全サーバ群は、大規模メンテナンス&アップデート作業に突入しました。本大規模メンテナンス及びそれに伴う同アップデート完了を以て、今季冬イベ捷一号作戦、そのレイテ決戦が開幕します!


Maintenance status: large-scale server maintenance currently in progress The KanColle server maintenance & update is currently in progress. We have reached the halfway point. The update accompanying this maintenance includes Home Port Showdown and Decisive Battle voice lines for at least 20 ship girls.

メンテナンス状況:稼働全サーバ群は大規模メンテナンス作業中です。 「艦これ」稼働全サーバ群はメンテナンス&アップデート作業を実施中です。作業は中盤のシークエンスに入りました。本メンテに伴うアップデートでは、20隻以上の艦娘に母港決戦ボイスや決戦戦闘ボイスなども実装中です。

  1. 艦これ


For this event we've changed the progress bar system so that if you switch from a high difficulty level such as Hard Mode or Medium to an easier one and, for example, have already chipped away a large chunk of the HP gauge, you'll be able to keep your progress to a certain extent.


  1. 艦これ


Musashi, second ship of the Yamato-class battleships, is going to receive her second refit at the same the time we're done implementing this winter event. The remodelled Yamato-class battleship "Musashi K2" will feature a fifth equipment slot. Whether it's several main batteries, anti-air equipment, radars, or a combination of new boilers and turbines, as a huge and powerful battleship she'll be able to use a large variety of different setups.



As usual veteral admirals will be able to select Hard Mode, Medium Mode etc. The required gimmicks you'll have to unlock to progress through maps will differ depending on the selected difficulty level. Even if you try a high difficulty level only to switch to a lower one halfway through the progress you've made for a map gimmick will carry over to a certain extent



As the map gimmicks differ between difficulty levels such as Hard Mode or Easy Mode, should you make progress in a map on Hard Mode up until a certain point and then lower that map's difficulty level, a new route may become available among other things. As far as map rewards and ship drops are concerned the higher the difficulty level the better.



Every single new ship girl we're implementing today can be obtained regardless of difficulty level. Clearing the second map of the Main Operation will reward you with the new ship girl "Hiburi", name ship of the Hiburi-class escort ships. Admirals who clear the last map of the Main Operation will obtain the escort carrier "Gambier Bay"!

全ての作戦難易度で、本日実装する【新艦娘】と邂逅すること可能です。前段作戦第二作戦海域の攻略突破で、新艦娘:日振型海防艦一番艦「日振」が艦隊に合流します。前段作戦最終作戦海域を見事突破された提督の元には、あの護衛空母、航空母艦「Gambier Bay」が合流します!


[To admirals who participate in an event for the first time:] Welcome to the world of KanColle! In order to clear event maps it is important to expand your fleet in normal maps, level your ships, hoard resources and possess a large equipment arsenal. Even if you think that's too difficult there's no need to try to bruteforce maps or throw money at the game. Instead you should make good use of the normal maps.

【始めて期間限定海域に参加する提督の皆さんへ】 「艦これ」の世界にようこそ!期間限定作戦海域の攻略には、通常海域での艦隊戦力の拡充、艦隊練度向上や資源の備蓄、装備の充実が大切です。これは難しい…と感じたら、反復出撃を強行したり、課金したりせず、通常海域もお役立てください。

Twitter logo blue @KanColle_STAFF Patch notes


For this event we're going to implement the new "Casual Mode". It is a new difficulty level for admirals who simply don't have the time to play or have joined only recently and just want to clear the event anyway.



Admirals who want a challenge can still select Hard Mode as usual, admirals with a decent fleet can go for Medium Mode, and of course there's always Easy Mode. Please select the difficulty levels that suit your fleet or playstyle the most.

(続き) 手応えのある作戦海域を望む提督方は、引き続き最難関の【甲作戦】、そして充実の艦隊を運用している提督方への【乙作戦】、そして通常通りの【丙作戦】選択もそれぞれの艦隊運用スタイルに合わせてご選択ください。


"Musashi K2", the second refit of the second ship of the Yamato-class battleships, will be implemented together with this winter event. Due to the immense power of this remodelled Yamato-class battleship the refit will need several blueprints among other things. Three blueprints, three new artillery armament materials and one action report will be required. Oh my gooooooooooooooood! However...!



However, as long as you clear everything at least on Easy Mode, you'll be able to obtain all the required items, including the three blueprints, as rewards by clearing the Main Operation of the Winter 2018 Event "Showdown at Shō-Gō! Battle of Leyte Gulf (Part 2)"



If you're already all set and ready to remodel "Musashi" into "Musashi K2" ASAP, that's fine. If you have a bunch of other ship girls just waiting for their K2s and want to remodel them first, that's also fine! In either case you'll be able to obtain three blueprints etc. in the Main Operation of this winter event.



Oh... and we're terribly sorry. Due to the immense workload we unfortunately have to announce that there will be delays. We're really sorry. Please give us about three more hours. The event duration will be extended and the Extra Operation start date will be pushed back accordingly. Just a quick update and apology. We'll try to fix this as fast as possible



Again, we're sorry. Working on it.



メンテナンス状況:稼働全サーバ群は大規模メンテナンス作業中です。 「艦これ」稼働全サーバ群はメンテナンス&アップデート作業を実施中です。現在、作業は最終シークエンスに移行中しつつあります。お待たせして申し訳ありません。各サーバ群の足並みと開放開始可能時間を確認作業中です。

The KanColle Winter 2018 Limited-time Operation: Showdown at Operation Shō-Gō!

Starting with the second map of the Main Operation you can form a "Combined Fleet". The main fleet consists of fleet #1 and the escort fleet of fleet #2. Drag & drop the fleet #2 icon at the top of the composition screen onto the fleet #1 icon to form a Combined Fleet with a maximum of 12 ships, provided the requirements are met, and sortie it to event maps.



Furthermore, for the duration of the event it is once again possible to select the "Vanguard Formation", a battle formation that focuses on breaking through enemy lines, while using a regular fleet (or a strike force consisting of 7 ships that can be formed with fleet #3). During the event the "Vanguard Formation" can also be used in regular maps. It might help you clear regular maps if you happen to be stuck at one!



When the event starts several ship girls will wear headbands and be on stand-by duty. Furthermore, "Zuikaku", second ship of the Shōkaku-class aircraft carriers and who commanded Japan's last task force, will wear her "Battle of Cape Engaño" outfit instead of her regular K2 or K2A clothes and join the fight. Main Task Force... get ready to head out!



The carriers Zuikaku, Zuihō, Chitose & Chiyoda of Ozawa's Northern Fleet, Atago, Takao, Chōkai & Maya of DesRon 4 that sortied as part of Force A & B of the first striking force under Kurita's Fleet and who were ambushed by enemy submarines at the Palawan Passage, as well as many other ships will receive "Decisive Battle" voice lines!

Now go to Leyte Gulf and carve your victory upon its horizon of dawn!


  • 友軍艦隊の援護突入は本作戦ではNPC艦隊です。
  • 同突入艦隊の陣容は、レイテ湾に突入する提督指揮下の1YB(第一機動部隊)の艦隊構成によっても変化します。
