  • Hey,

    Long time no see, friend. Just caught you asking question over in the event comment section, so I figure that I should hail you here ;). How are you doing? I hope everything is fine on your side.

    • Another failed attempt and close as well.. This time wasted 2 repair goddesses too....... I should have learned my lesson from before and gone for DA setup on my Kitakami, despite her max luck...

      PS. Do you perhaps have other means of communication? It would be more convenient to talk with you through Skype or Discord for example. :)

    • Those are really close runs. Just need a 'lil bit of luck, I guess?

      I am just about ready to throw the towel on Hard, eventhough I have not hit my resource critical threshold. It's because of catbombs. I've been having them in the last 2 days, and already several runs are botched by those. It's pretty demotivating... ( ;_; )

      Yes, I do have Discord acc. My handle is Alatreon#9996. Feel free to leave a message when you have chance. :))

  • As per your request, here is a new thread. :)

    For E-2 Hard, Transport TF, as you may have experienced, has rather dicey chance to reach boss. Out of 7 runs with Transport TF, I only managed to reach the boss 3 times (less than 50% rate!!). But when they do reach the boss, they deal massive hit to the TP bar. With A-rank (worst case possible), I could manage to chip the bar by 85 (9 daihatsus and 1 drum, IIRC).

    Carrier Task Force, on the other hand, has very high chance to reach the boss. Out of 5 runs, I reached the boss 4 times (80% boss reach rate) and managed S-rank 3 times. With S-rank, I can chip the bar by about 72 (with 6 daihatsus and 1 drum).

    Total runs: 12 attempts; 7 reached boss (3 Transport, 4 CTF), 5 retreats, 3 S-rank.

    Both node and boss support expeditions were used in all runs, btw, so it's rather expensive.

    Thoughts - Transport TF, while cost less per run, is rather unreliable, and very bucket heavy. If you're unlucky, the resource cost may well exceed CTF... CTF is very expensive to run (esp. on bauxite), but has high probability to reach the boss. This is not a fun map to farm at Hard, IMO, but doable if you have a good reserve of resources. Farming on Easy is highly recommended if you feel you are low on resources.

    I cannot say much about E-3 Hard at the moment, because I am still preparing myself. This is probably going to be the only event sorties in which I take time to sparkle everyone in the fleet, because I fear losing a Saiun, and I don't have many of them... T_T (attempting to craft one can cost you extra sanity loss and several thousand bauxites).

    • Thank you! ^-^ I was actually a bit worried that I would not be able to clear the event on hard in time.. I am glad I was able to do it though! I would not be able to keep on playing this game without getting every single First-class medal possible, haha. :D

      I was quite surprised and impressed too when I found out about the equipment on my fBBs, which was a short while after I had cleared the event, when I had to take out some of their guns.. :o I like the name you have coined for the Wo-kais. I think it is quite funny and accurate as well. ^_^ Good times, when we still had actual boss characters as gatekeepers to the boss nodes. (not)

      I went to clear my monthly quests and clearing 1-5, 2-5, 3-5 instead of farming for I-13. I value earning screws higher than obtaining her, since she will most likely reach my base someday anyway. Have you gotten your I-13 in the end? :O

      Again, I want to thank you (and Zel-melon) for the suggestions and replays! ^-^ Those have really helped me and especially saved me a lot of time. I really do want to create a guide for next event, but I am still uncertain whether I will be able to. I think I will definitely be able to write a walkthrough for Summer 2017 though, since I will be back at home by then, provided that I am not on vacation during the event. :/

    • You're welcome! :) The pleasure is mine, friend. You helped me in past events with your guide, and I am pleased to be able to return the favor. (^-^)/ I also would love to see your guide for the coming event, but I understand that RL takes priority, so it's fine if you cannot. :)

      I did not manage to find I-13, so, yeah, there are two empty cards in my KanDex now. :/ Still, I have no regrets, and I also got a lesson in efficient farming. I will still get them someday. >: | Some say farming on hard is a folly, but when the priority is completing event on all Hard, it is a consequence.

      And true that about screws. Only recently I cared about screws, and I am actually surprised at how fast I can gather them once I actually put an effort to it. Right now I'm aiming to  upgrade some of my Skilled Type 21s. At max upgrade, I think they will get +2 AA bonus, which put them close to standard Reppu - a fine escort for LBAS bombers for long range mission. I think I also need to give small caliber guns some love, too.

      It's a pleasure conversing with you. I look forward to seeing you again, either in guide, or in message walls. Good luck and fair seas! (^_^)/

  • Thabk you for your E7 post. Even though I'm on easy and you did hard, it is so thorough that I'm referring to it quite often.

    I also like your tips/rants There sure are lots of event posts about "Who should I farm for next?", or the countless close calls on failed boss attempts and their sanity levels. I agree with you that it is all unnecesary and attention-grabbing, but that is a way to get adbice/encouragement/praise.

    Congratulations on marrying Kongou and even getting her to 150. It is quite the long road for my fiancee and me, but there's no rush.

    • Yeah I finished E7. I know it's luck-based anyway, but I really got lucky with Haguro targeting a still ~175 hp AD princess out of four targets. lol sorry I meant I got them to kai. . so who have you farmed for? I'm deciding between Akashi (for improvements) and Unryuu (primarily for 601 Reppuu).

      Yeah you've seen a lot. I used to watch a lot as well (back in 2013 I even watched every show of each season, up to 35 or so), but I might be in a bit of a lull since I am basically waiting until I find something really impressive.

      Yeah, I've never seen anybody post their Shinden Kai, though we're talking about very old veteran players who may or may not still be playing and may or may not communicate with others specifically on websites likes these.

      Haha that's like me, I don't spend money on free games so I was surprised when I decided I wanted to for KC. I bought the repair docks and some slot expansions, though I also will not purchase additional rings. Speaking of which, I once again am second-guessing on who is my favorite between Shoukaku and Yahagi. Maybe I should wait until I get Yahagi and then just see how both of them do over time. I can't believe I make such a big deal out of this, haha.

    • Congratulations on clearing E-7! ^_^ I got Unryuu during one of my map clear runs, Kazagumo as well. Earlier today, I finally got Mizuho from E-3, after 47 sorties (and only 14 S ranks)! I acquired an Amatsukaze clone few days ago too. I am going to farm for Umikaze later today. Hopefully I'll be able to get her then. My resources are relatively low and I don't have time tomorrow.

      I doubt there are many non-Japanese players among those who have the Shinden Kai, as it was pretty early on. I wonder whether many Japanese teitokus visit this English wiki or the forum, once again, I doubt it.

      This is not the first time in a free-to-play game where I initially decided never to spend a dime on it, but ultimately still do. :/ I never expected these to be this good.

      I know what you mean with the ring stuff, it happened to me too. :/ If it was me, I'd choose Shoukaku over Yahagi, because she's more "useful" than Yahagi. Shoukaku is my favourite CV as well. Besides, I like Agano the most of all girls of her class. Not to say that Yahagi is bad though. I'm usually less fan of the "serious" types.
