Twitter logo blue.png @KanColle_STAFF Pre Update


The New Year's KanColle is currently running the Winter 2019 Event: Limited-time Operation [Assault! Buin Defense Operation] and the "New Year Special Quests".
The Event and the Quests will only be available until the next KanColle Servers Maintenance and Updates!
The next KanColle Servers Maintenance and Updates... (To be Continued)



The next KanColle Servers Maintenance and Updates will take place on January 18th, Friday while keeping the New Year Holidays intact.
Also tomorrow January 7th is the Day of 'Nanakusa Gayu (Seven Herb Rice Porridge)'! There will be a small live update for the Naval Base Counter Bar to have the Seven Herb Rice Porridge as well tomorrow.
Admirals, please have some Turmeric and the Seven Herb Rice Porridge to maintain your Gastrointestinal!



The KanColle development team is currently working a major milestone, Setsubun. All previous "Setsubun mode" CGs and "Setsubūn" voice lines are obviously going to return, but we're also preparing a whole lot of new Setsubun CGs! They're going to be added to the game for a limited time in the next maintenance & update! Setsubun might not be much, but we hope you're looking forward to it anyway!



While the KanColle development is currently working hard on defending the game servers and making sure you can connect to them, we're also busy with preparations for the upcoming Setsubun update. Setsubun is a very important tradition for us after all! It'll be implemented in the update during the next maintenance! Another year, another Setsubun to work towards!



We commend all admirals who're participating in the Winter 2019 Event "Intercept! Operation 'Buin Defence'" while we're under attack, and apologise for the trouble those attacks have caused. As of now the clear rates of each event map are as follows:
・E-1: ~90%
・E-2: ~85%+
・E-3: ~75%+



As of now the most commonly selected difficulty level of each event map is as follows:
・E-1: Overwhelmingly Hard, followed by Medium, Easy and Casual, in this order.
・E-2: Also overwhelmingly Hard.
・E-3: Hard and Easy are roughly equal.



The KanColle servers are going to undergo maintenance next week on the 22nd January (Tuesday) from 11:00 until 20:00. The currently ongoing Winter 2019 Event as well as the New Year quests are both going to end when said maintenance begins. (Depending on the circumstances the maintenance date might change. Please keep this in mind.)

「艦これ」稼働全サーバ群は、来週【1/22(火) 11:00~20:00】にメンテナンス&アップデートを実施予定です。本メンテ突入を以て、現在作戦展開中の冬イベ2019及び新春特別任務は、全作戦終了の予定です。 (状況によってメンテ実施日時は変更の可能性があります。予めご了承頂けますと幸いです)


The next KanColle server maintenance & update is slated for next week on the 22nd January (Tuesday). The update during said maintenance is going to include new items in the furniture shop's inventory. If you're interested in furniture of the current season, you better get it now! The inventory update includes not just old, but also new Setsubun-themed furniture. Look forward to it!



This time the new Setsubun furniture was drawn not by Drew, Akira or Fujikawa, who used to draw some items, or Akasaka Yuzu, who's now on active furniture duty, but a young illustrator who's currently undergoing training in the 11th torpedo squadron of the KanColle Administration's Naval Base! Someday she might even make her debut as a ship girl illustrator, so we hope that you'll support her!



The 2019 New Year quests will come to an end next week when the maintenance begins. Admirals who clear the final quest of that mission series receive not just the usual quest rewards, but also a "Steady Progress" wall scroll. Nisshin, the new ship from the final winter event map, was drawn by Bob, while the "Steady Progress" wall scroll from the final New Year quest was drawn by Akasaka Yuzu!



If you have already obtained the "Steady Progress" wall scroll but haven't hung it up yet, you should give it a try when you're not busy. The wall scroll has a nifty little gimmick... It might not be easy to let got of times past, but let's try to move on day by day!
