I didn't get Mikura or any other good drop except Grecale, and I had very little ressources (like 80 buckets at the start of the event), but I managed to clear it full hard anyway. I have a lot of work to do, but I have still time to resend expeditions and stuff between each classes, so it's not so bad ! I'm also in a boarding school, and the guys in my room are nice and weeb on the edges, so everything's fine. I should be able to participate in the next event if things keep going at this pace.
I see, I have mostly moved CV's from PVP too costly. just blew 60K Baux to craft Sara. no luck. only have 2K Baux now. Another event my Daughter and I play has this month Ryuujou as its event drop, As I was looking for some info to send to her about it there is a photo of her and Amatsukaze in it. Were she was trying to save sailor's from a sinking Ryuujou. I am hoping that should Amatsukaze receive a Kai Ni. that somewhere in her dress. She would have some item to reflect her actions with Ryuujou. Like how some Kanmusu have tolkens of historical events with other Kanmusu during WW2. As long as it isn't a hat though. Wish some of that was reflected in her line too.
Hope your weekend went well. I thought I would give the last holiday quest a shot. How hard can it be to do four maps in two days. Right? 5-1 is unlocked so I did that. 5-2 Was not opend, so was like. Huh, I already did it pre update. So thought that I just had to open 4-1 to 4-4 again. Wait, map doesn't look like one in wiki. Check comments. Its map 7-1. Ok. Working on 7-1 now. Decide to see what kind of shit storm waits me on map 5. I see 5-3 and 5-4. Have to kill boss 5 time each....
Yea, no. Not a chance in hell to get Hei's wall banner... "Sigh"...
Waiting for the drop list to come out. right now. Easy looks interesting. Though I would really like to finish a event. So just farm and wait for max resources, or just go for broke. How's your event going at the moment or too soon for you yet. The large ship locks has me concerned.
I'm stuck on E-2 2nd phase Hard Last dance. The pre-boss is tough. I just stopped because RNG won't let me pass and tomorrow is school. I'll just wait for more information to be collected because I'm about to burn out.
E-1 is very easy, I think you could try hard mode for this one.
Thanks. Not sure when I will start yet. As it stands I see about 15 new Kanmusu I want to farm for. E-1, I-13, and I-26. E-2, Kamoi, Matsukaze, Mikuma, Minazuki, Pola, and Zara. E-3, Harusame, Isskaze, Kashima, Kishinami, Nowaki, and Tokitsukaze. I may wait till Thursday. As I want to buy two more Dorms for my new Girls. As I still have 17 from last event I want for Equipment from Their Kai. Plus I will hoard every Mikuma I can get for her Kai guns. Still no Duck sister yet. Will see what drops are for E-4 and E-5.
I was expected to have at least been able to finish on Easy. had to go to casual on E4. now will farm these last few days for important Kanmusu I do not have yet. As I have yet to farm an event drop all these weeks. Usually I am able to net five or six. this event not so much. Really was a shit one for me.
I did finish E4 two days ago. Was simply RNG, happens more then we want. Just farming E1 and E3. might just do a run in E5. if only to say I did do the last map once. What are you doing event wise now?
- Kancolle Phase 2 will in no way go into 3D. HTML5 is a web based 2D language, they'd have ported the game to WebGL is they wanted to do 3D, which is a web based 3D language.
- We currently know next update is on 1st August, and it will be the last Flash based update, before the transition to HTML5 about a week later. Confirmed features with the transtion are : HD client (likely 1280x720p), friend fleets, players' data will be carrier over, and a complete internal game data management overhaul. This first transition update will be the "Block-1" of HTML5, meaning it will only be a first version with most of the basic features implemented.
- The event then will come about 2 weeks later, named officially the "late-summer event", and has been confirmed so far to be a large "medium scale" event. The said it could still be changed.
- My hopes : that the event won't completely ruin my beginning of the year at school, since this one might finish in mid or even late september ; that HTML5 transition will really make the game feel better, with faster animations, and some gameplay mechanic changes, since the only complex formation currently is Vanguard, all the others are quite basic and niche, except Line Ahead, and some stuff is quite retarded, like when you wipe out planes on an air node, but the enemy regains all of their planes once you get to their node... ; that the ranking rewards tomorrow (30th July) will be good, since I tried out ranking in June, I don't want to get crappy items.
So, there you have it, stay tuned, the game and the community might get way more active than on those last and dead 4 months ! I'm so excited :D
Sounds good. Good Luck with your studies. What are your goals this event. I plan on only farming a Duck sister or two as I do not have any as of yet and still desire to work on more resources and save up for the next event.
I want more Duckies if possible, since I only have Akizuki. My goals in difficulty will depend on available time, rewards and difficulties of the maps I guess. I still have one month of holidays right now, so I'm still free for now :D
I know on phone they just changed the maps, but it's still the Flash client, but on PC, it's in HD 60 fps without any jpeg artifact, and it's glorious ! I love how they added an option to change the style of the interface too !
Pretty good !
I didn't have the chance to get Daitou and Hamanami, neither Tashkent.
But I got a decent amount of new ships.
I'll only list the ones that I've never had before (in the right order) :
- Gambier Bay
- Graf Zeppelin
I did E-6 in medium and E-7 in casual. I gave up hard in E-6 on phase 2 because the boss just wouldn't die. I originally planed to do E-7 in medium as well, but I decided to do casual because of the few time I had. I think you didn't need full purple tag in E-6, I think you could sortie non tagged ships...
Apparently it will be a large scale, and that doesn't arrange me tbh... But I'll try to prepare accordingly and try to at least finish it. I don't think there will be a lot of carriers in the next event, so I do not worry too much about bauxite (and since it's my birthday today, I will try to LSC Taihou right after I post that message !). I'm currently clearing EOs and doing some quests, and leveling Musashi, Naganami, Murasame and ship rewards from last event through PvP.
Congrats on your Birthday. what do you for expidition wise to build up resources? I use 9, 11, 37 and 38. four lvls left before Sendai is lvl 60. and my Yamato is not ready for the event with what resources I have left. "Sigh"...
Your expeditions choices are fine. But actually you have quite a lot of ressources compared to me xD And also I don't even have Yamato so you should be really happy with that. Also I wonder, what is you HQ level ?
Only lvl 100. but to be fair though I have been out of work and ill from my cancer treatment so that is why I have had so much free time to play I only started in June and was not able to work on the quests till I found a translator app for my phone in october, As such I lack equipment to do events. Yamatos fuel cost is to great to use her.
So, I see, but, you really have a cancer ?! Is it serious ? I hope you can recover from it. I understand your situation better now, about how your equipment setups were not really correct for E4, so you don't have a computer to play Kancolle on ? Also, lvl 100 is quite good actually, it means you became a quite experienced player theorically. I wonder now, where are you from, and how old are you ? I'm 16 and I'm from France.
Nice, I play on my Cell. never was able to get it to work on my Laptop and not season'd just more experence. Stage three lower intestine. lost 1/3 of it and they give me at best seven to ten years left of life. 48 years old so I have had a good life. Want more though. caught it while working in China. I just lvl'd Sendai to 60 tonight so have a flare and night spotter now. Ah to be young. France, never been there. Been to Ukraine and Thailand. Do yourself a favor. get your TEFL and work a few years in Asia or south America. See the world while you are young before you spend the next 35 years working a job with regret. If your lucky you might be around when VR goes mainstream. How cool to be a TTK in that world.... though not so much with the Loli DE. LOL Not sure yet about this event. will wait and see. though still have not broke 40K with my fuel
I'm so sorry for you, this is certainly hard to live that... but I hope these years will be the best you will live !
I've been to some neighbour countries to France like Germany, Belgium and Great Britain. I also had a school trip of 1 week to New York, that was great ! I've never been to Ukraine or Thailand, but I hope to be able to go to more places in the future ! I don't have VR currently, only had the chance to test it a little in various places.
I wish you best luck for next event, and I will do all my possible to support you through future events !
Good. for the most part Thanks. I am out of the event as out of fuel for the most part and farming Jervis on E-4. I did casual and screwed myself out of a needed buck as I didn't realize you cant change lvl after you finish a map Wish I could advice you on E-6 though. Good speed and net you a Russian DD
Sadly, I have spent the last nine days trying to farm Sea-plane Chan on E2. at this rate so full of salt will try and farm her till the end after nine days. Never made it to second boss on E6. Go for Tashkent. I adore Hamanami, she and Jervis (Three days to net her)my favorite drops so far. Who you find in your fleet that is new?
Ok so, I will say something about each of your ships' setups (you sent me the message at 1 AM in my timezone, sorry that I couldn't answer fast):
-For Kongou : Bringing a 3 slots BB (Or any non kai ship) in an event map is a really bad idea, because you can't make a proper setup on your ship. A BB, in the vast majority of cases, has to equip 2 red guns, one recon seaplane, and an AP shell. If you put only one gun, your ship will not trigger any special attack, and thus will make only shitty single attacks.
-For Mogami : Bringing only 2 seaplane bombers for artillery spotting (the thing to get special attacks at day) is not recommended if the enemy has a high AA power, because if the two seaplane bombers gets shotdown completely (0 slot), your ship won't be able to artillery spot, so you want generally to put at least one standard recon seaplane. I think you're doing it in easy mode, so I guess this isn't really important, but be aware of that. Also, with your image I can't see in which slots your seaplanes are. Each slot has a different size, so when equipping planes, the place where you equip it matters : you should put them in the largest slots (the number you can see on the left of the equipment indicates the size of the slot.
-For Kirishima and Haruna : I already said the problem for Kongou, the standard setup is 2 red guns, 1 recon seaplane and an AP shell. If you put one red gun and one yellow gun, first it will directly reduce your firepower since the yellow gun you putted is +7 FP and the red one one you putted is +20 FP, so you lose 13 FP. Secondly, with your current setup, your ship will either do an AP cut-in, with a multiplier of 150%, compared to 100% for a single attack (obviously), or a secondary gun cut-in, with a multiplier of 110%. If you put a red gun instead of a yellow, you will trigger either an AP cut-in (150% multiplier) or a double attack (120% x2). As you can see, the double attack is far more powerful (120% x2) than a secondary gun cut-in (110% x1). So, replace the yellow gun with a red gun.
-For Ryuujou and Chitose : I can say the same as for Mogami in term of equipping order. Something you should know about aircraft carriers : the fighters should be on the smallest slots, and the bombers on the largest. Also, except when you want really high air power by equipping only fighters, you should ALWAYS place a bomber in the first slot of the CV(L/B). It will gain an additionnal 10% damage in case of a critical hit like that. Also each max proficiency bomber you put on your aircraft carrier will add an additionnal 10% damage in case of a critical, this value in the first slot is just doubled (10 + 10%).
-For Yura : do not, EVER, put a seaplane bomber on Yura. She has extremely small slots (between 1 and 2 depending of the slot) that can be shot down extremely easily, and that will not do any significant damage. If it's shot down, then she loses her ability to artillery spot. Also, if you put any kind of bomber or fighter plane (not recon plane) in escort fleet of a combined fleet, these will only launch when your fleet faces an abyssal combined fleet. Also, to gain more accuracy against PT imps, the best setup is 2 high angle guns (like the one on Harukaze), and a skilled lookouts http://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Skilled_Lookouts (this). You should equip that on Yura to rekt PT imps. Recon seaplanes or AA guns are also a good idea. For more information about rekting PT imps, I invite you to go on this page : http://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/PT_Imp_Pack . Avoid equipping PT imp rekting setup on your BBs, that's not their job.
-For Harukaze : Forget that setup. If you made this to get an AA cut-in, okay, but this AA cut-in remains weak and she loses the ability to do double attack at night. I recommend you put the same equipment that the one for Yura I mentionned above (2 high angle guns and a skilled lookouts or an AA gun if you don't have any skilled lookoouts). Also, why would you take Harukaze in combat ?! She not meant for that ! You should replace her.
-For Choukai and Maya : That setup will trigger a luck based CI at night instead of an almost guaranteed double attack, and a weak secondary guns CI on day instead of a double attack. Remove the yellow guns, and put a auxiliary equipment like an AA gun or skilled lookouts to rekt PT imps, or a RADAR if you don't have to rekt PT imps.
-For Yukikaze : replace the AA gun with an high angle gun to trigger double attack at night instead of single attack, and your setup will be perfect.
-For Mutsuki : same setup as the others (2 high angle guns and a skilled lookouts / AA gun). Also, why would you take Mutsuki in combat ?! She not meant for that ! She can carry daihatsus for transport operations, but if it's not a transport operation, do NOT take her. You should replace her.
Okay, that concludes what I had to say about your setup. If you need any other help, send me a message, and I will try to answer it the faster I can. I live in west Europe, so it's sunday 12 PM at the time I'm sending this message.
Actully, its 2 am here I got home from work I will tell you my set up for the second to last dance. perhaps you can tweek my set up. You want me to cut and past my items or just write them out. what works for you?
Same, my mistake is lack of knowledge and equipment. Also the PT imps suck the fun and enjoyment from the game. The twins only have the health from their own. but am unable to finish them off. Will recap after work this week. would enjoy input from my last dance set up and ideas on imporving it. Thanks
Well, you just lacked luck, like me. This setup is okay. Just avoid putting two seaplane bombers on your CAVs, their slots can be easily shotdown. I'd have recommended to put a recon seaplane and a seaplane bomber, but to be honest, I don't think that would have changed anything to your success rate at boss.
Thanks, Just bothers me that I was unable to complete the event. It was the subs at I the CV at S and the PT imps at ZZ3 that ended most sorties. Twice now the PT imps were such a pain. Any set up you would recomend for the next one? Did you kill the twins or were stuck with them also. did you kill them once like me or not? Any good drops? I kept these Kanmusu,
The setup you used on your DDs was fine, just put only green guns (but I think you did that because you hadn't enough right ?). I cheesed the 1st boss to last dance with submarines, and failed the 1st boss last dance while playing on medium mode. So I was unable to kill the boss even a single time. My ressources were not ready for this.
I ment what items you think you would buy? Oh if you havnt thought of this yet for bolts. I found out for the daily up grade quest. if you level one Combat ration up to level 6 you use no bolts (just one ration). So its a free bolt every 1-5 upgrade. (still have twenty one rations to use) so it will open needed space and build up my bolt supplie.
I see, you have the full space of 250 then? Though I use bolt as its a less sexual term. besides most bolts when working with metal have no point on the tip. usually the screw which has a point is for wood. but you get my meaning. LOL still no results from the contest. so I gather by wednesday. and expect to maybe only afford an expasion slot.
So to be fare I checked up on the bolt/screw. its like a machine screw. so who knew.
I managed to do all the quests ! But it was really tedious... I didn't bother at all for DE farm, we already have more than enough.
What did you think about last update ? Ise and Kuroshio's Kai ni are so great ! I'm looking forward to HTML5 release ! Quick question, what server are you in and do you plan to change ? It would be cool to be in the same server for friend fleets ! I'm currently in Hashirajima, but I'm moving to Brunei because that's where the majority of the members of the french Kancolle Discord server decided to go.
