Hello I was wondering if you could check my fleet and see if its at least good enough for easy or medium.
I'm currently leveling furutaka, haruna and hiei to their kai ni levels as well as doing w.e i can for leveling within time constraints i have for my other girls. Since this is my first event im not sad if easy is all i can do ill be happy with that. If you or any of the others whom have chimed in to help on your wall can offer suggestions etc i would be extremely grateful for the help/advice.
Lots of fail in my opinion. You clearly have been attempting LSC and denying alot of low level kanmusu on the side. The choice of most DD and CA are also terrible which really hinder you alot cuz there is no kanmusu specialised in luck and other high stats. You're going to struggle alot if you're attempting Medium/Hard event. In my opinion, a waste of opportunity for Medium clear unless you stopped trying to construct Bismarck earlier. Otherwise, i think you're better off with Easy/Medium clear.(lower the difficulty if its too hard)
DD - I have no idea why would you like to level up the 6th destroyer division alot. The only acceptable DD are Akatsuki and Fubuki. Hibiki should be remodeled to Verniy by now, yet you just continued to level her to level 73. Also, keep pushing Fubuki and Akatsuki to Kai Ni as soon as possible. I also strongly recommend you to add in Shimakaze and train up Yukikaze /w Shigure if you can. That way, you will have some high luck and AACI DD to rely on.
CL - Sendai and Naka Kai Ni is acceptable. Eventually you will need to level up Jintsuu and Abukuma alot.
CLT - Fine, just level Kiso to Kai Ni for the extra 61cm Quintuple Torpedo.
CA - Alright, you have 3 good CA (counting out Kinugasa). You will be leveling up Kinugasa and Furutaka to Kai Ni. Its ok for medium but not good enough. You will need to level up another Myoukou class or you may choose to train up Aoba instead. Aoba has a decent luck but Myoukou is better.
You don't even have any Myoukou class trained to Kai Ni which is bad cuz you're denying the extra 20.3cm (No.2) gun to be equipped + good solid stats by them.(Especially Myoukou for best stats and high luck) Therefore, really wasted.
CAV - Very weak here. Level up Suzuya to at least level 50. Eventually Tone and Chikuma will have to be remodeled to CAV.
FBB - The FBB are the best as compared to everyone else, not to mention that you have constructed Bismarck which is not a good move in my opinion. The FBB will be supporting the enire fleet throughout the event. You will need to get Kirishima to Kai Ni and eventually Bismarck will be remodeled to Zwei after 2nd BP.
BB - Mutsu would be best to be leveled to level 60~70. You can't deny good BB like her.
BBV - Ise is not a good BBV, should have leveled Yamashiro and Fusou instead. But whatever, you will make use of her.
CV - I strongly recommend you to level up Hiryuu to Kai Ni and Kaga as much as you can. Both are great CV and good stats.
CVL - Jun'you and Chitose have been leveled to Kai Ni which is a good point. Focus on leveling Chiyoda and Hiyou next and you should be fine. Don't even bother to level Houshou and Shouhou cuz their stats are terrible. Ryuujou can be leveled as well but its a far cry from level 3.
SS - Use whatever low level SS for 3-2A powerleveling.
Ok, at least you have something to offer.
Fighter - A couple more of Reppuu and Shiden Kai II would be nice
Dive Bomber - Craft more Suisei Model 12A.
Torpedo Bomber - Craft more Ryuusei (Kai)
Shells - at least 2 more Type 3 shells.
Again, some fail in improving the wrong equipments.
You should be improving these equipments instead:
All 20.3cm (No.3) (6*) if have any
4~6 20.3cm (No.2) (4*)
2 x 35.6cm (Max) [Do not upgrade to Prototype 35.6cm]
4~6 x 41cm (4*) [Only improve when you have more than enough 41cm to spare, otherwise stick to a couple of 41cm (1*)]
Thank you for the review! Most of the leveling for my destroyers has come from expedition 37/38 farming with minor use for branching when i was trying to clear 4-2 etc as for not leveling the other important destroyers its a mix of 4-3 throwing salt with that damn bb node and accidentally screwing myself outta 1-5 when i really wanted I19 for my 2-3 sub fleet. Bismarck was a by product of musashi/yamato crafting while also having z1 as flag and when i got bismarck kirishima wasn't part of the fleet yet so i was looking for another bb as mutsu wasn't around yet. in the CA leveling department that was a fail on me i liked the art and saw that furutaka and kako came with decent stuff and were lower level k2 so ive been throwing them in with the pvp fleet/3-2a bb leveling team. With the myoukous in mind ill start working on getting them up to par.
On the akashi front yea she that was a case of recently aquiring her and terrible equipment improvement choices that ive been working to fix since this weekend. As i said before I'm perfectly fine with only clearing easy maybe medium if im lucky i only started this game 2nd week into the summer 2015 event and with my attention usually being grabbed by games like fallout 4(coming out next week) and other big games im surprised ive even gotten to where im at currently with my fleet.
Hi, sorry for the delay. I don't have much freedom to stay online like i always do. Actually, the real mentor should be Jenesis33 cuz he was the one i learnt from the most. Most of his review is strict and is the best review that he can offer. Unfortunately, he has not been online in this wikia since last month. I only provide good reviews for Easy and Medium but Hard is not my speciality.
From what i observe in most Jenesis33's review, you can enter the Hard event if your fleet is full of level 80+ kanmusu with level 70+ reserves. Overall, you have quite a formidable fleet which is impressive in terms of overall level and equipments. That's quite a huge improvement since you posted your fleet list some time ago. Depending on the how hard can Hard mode be, you might have a chance to get your first medal.
DD - Level up Teruzuki to replace Fubuki's AACI.
CL - (optional) Train up Abukuma and Isuzu.
CA - Level up Ashigara and Nachi to 75~80+, better to have the Myoukou sisters as your frontline with better stats unless you're planning to send Furutaka and Kako. You might also want to remodel Choukai too but remodel others first.
CAV - Looks a little weak, unless you can remodel Tone to Kai Ni. However, do not remodel her unless you need her for the entire event. Otherwise, continue to train 1~2 Mogami class and it should be sufficient.
BB(V) - Looks great and healthy. Yamashiro and Roma could use some remodeling with blueprints.
Regarding Blueprint ~ Depending on how the maps are in Fall 2015, you might want to save the blueprint for later use. Otherwise, i strongly recommend you to remodel Tone since your CAV looks weak.
Planes and shells are good to go, a few more Reppuu and Suisei Model 12A would be most welcome. You still need to craft more Type 32 Surface Radars and maybe a couple of Type 0 Observation plane.
You have Akashi as well, which means you can start improving equipments. You can start by improving the following:
~2x20.3cm (no.3) (4*)
~a couple of 20.3cm (no.2) (4*)
~4xType 91AP (6*)
~a few sets of 35.6cm (max) OR a few sets of 41cm (6*) if you have plenty of 41cm to spare.
~3x61cm Quint Torpedo (6*)
(\/below\/, i'm not too sure about foreign gunnery so i guess its best to be like this. Of course it would be great if you can get the 381mm/50 to kai form.)
Hopefully, this review will help you a little considering my lack of experience for Kancolle. I cannot promise full clear for Hard but you could still clear Medium /w some maps on Hard. I wish you all the best and good hunting for Fall event. (thanks for making me looking through some Hard fleet thread and Akashi page btw, learn something new as usual)
Stremespoats made me sound like a ghost.. (a quite harsh ghost) That is not 100% true. I am still alive and sound (in fact still around wiki) Just didnt post on this side of the wiki (or anyside in fact). Since I have been summoned here i am.
First thing first, summer is different to fall. Fall event is only medium scale and predicated to be much easier than summer so my review will be no where as strict as it was for summer event.
Fleet: Good news first BB fleet fine, Musashi could use more level, but PVP for next 2 weeks should solve that easily. CV looking strong too. CVL is fine i think.so is CLT.
Now the more problematic area, CL lack levels, Abukuma and Jintsuu aim to have 85+ (ideally 90+) Not super important but good to have. DD is bit weaker too .Terzuki and Shimkaze need more levels. They are all very important supplement to have. (high luck CI Yukikaze, AA CI Terzuki and best all arounder Shimakaze) Yukikaze and aynami should be 85+ for final map combat!
CA is weak compare to rest of yoru fleet, only 3 combat ready and none above 85. Try to get other 2 Myoukou class up eventaully, but you will be ok with what you have. not ideal.
CAV is again the weakest area for you (and nearly everyone else out there). Tone need K2 eventually. and Try to get at least 2 more to 70-75 ish as backup. But again you should be ok, not ideal.
Overall your fleet is fine to fall event, lacking a bit level and depth here and there, but nothing critical.
7 reppuu is pass, ideally 10, (remove 2 for 601 from unryuu) Enough bombers and recon. Just enough shell. (should be fine) The rest mostly are just upgrade your items.
Golden rule to stick to, work on Quint Tropedo , no 3 (20.3) while you can (that is tuesday - thursday i think) rest of day work on 91 AP shell. Once all 91 Ap shell is to +6,
Switch to 41cm. Be careful not to upgrade too many of them because they chew through your 41cm reserve.
all quint oxy tropedo and no 3 (20.3) should be +6 by event starts. Ideally having 4 41cm +1 and 2 38cm Kai +1 (since you have Bismarck I assume you have these)
+1 is because your lack of reserve of 41cm, Ideally they should be +4 and evntually +9 to MAX, but thats a long way away.
No point worrying about radar, crafting radar is a slow and painful path. Take your time. having 1 wil not improve your fleet by leaps and bounds anyway. Assuming you have enough resources, stick to 4 daily craft of radar is alright (you can alternate b/w carfting 46cm and radar to balance things out a bit)
ArcticaFrost wrote: To be fair, you are very harsh and sometime way of the mark, however, most of your post is for helping out the people so the intention is good at least.
huh.. I guess this is refering to me. I do apologize if i have been sounding very harsh (speically for summer event)
I believe it is better to over-prepare than under-prepare. And we all were super worried for summer event been super hard (turn out to be quite hard). English is also not my native tongue, so I might have miss used some expression which made me sound very harsh, So again I do apologize for that.
Regarding "way off the mark", I cant say I agree with that, I been trying to give advice based my own understanding of game from chinese/japanese/western sources all compiled together. And it has carry me through the game well enough. (I also hand guided many players from chinese/western side through Spring and Summer event)
There might be some argument regarding what items to upgrade and BP order. But please understand I am mostly looking (applying knowledge) from chinese side of the game. Not saying they are 100% correct while western are 100% wrong.
Just saying there are some difference in understanding. I dont know who is right or wrong in this case. This game relies a lot on chances so I dont think there is a correct answer really speaking. It is like choosing some tech cards for hearthsone deck. Sure everyone run some core cards in a deck, but the extra 3-5 cards (out of 30) are just personal choices and I dont think there is right or wrong.
Personally I think the comment of "way off the mark" is pretty harsh in itself. It is really discouarging recieving a comment like this. pretty much saying , you are terriable and giving bad advice but at least you are trying so whatever.
Anyway. I guess if my time and effort is not appericated and not helping anyone (since they are harsh and way off the mark) I will just find something more useful to do and leave this matter to the more capable people here.
You need to understand that i criticize and praise you, if you can't look at both of them, how do you think other people feels when you are telling them what to do? If you wonder by of by mark is that you need to understand that everyone is allowed to express their opinion however, sometime you will go far to just defend or state that your opinion is better, just put out your opinion and then you are done, let the reader decide. I never stated that your guide was bad or good. If you want to talk more about it, just write on my wall.
I apologize to you Asylvanus for going off topic. This is after all, your thread.

haha. I guess i overreacted to your previous comment. regarding defending or not. it is just a 'bad' habbit from Philosophy classes. I will keep this in mind for now-on and try to refrain from these kind of looped argument.
People are going to criticize your actions all day, but what truly matters is the result. I still can't figure out how you managed to keep supporting people for this long (both you and Stream) but I appreciate both of your efforts and work you put into helping everyone.
whoa i'm not expecting my personal request became a pretty long thread
again thanks for streamspoats who have gave me in depth review, and summoned jenesis to my personal fleet inspection to inspect my fleet too
after i read both streamspoats and jenesis review, in general in all hard mode i need minimum lv 85 (90 standart) for both my main combined fleet, and reserve combined fleet (in progress via pvp leech)
also about equipment, at least +4 for main / mantadory equipment (already in progress tho)
i think my resource not good enough for targeting all hard clear, especially my bauxite which sitting around softcap and i cannot doing short time expedition cause RL stuff. so for equipment development i'm affraid i cannot doing daily craft radar / heavy gun.
fyi, for fall event i'm not targeting all hard clear bcause RL stuff made me have a limited time to playing. i'm focusing to get my first A class medal and rare drop in the map based on most resource efficient difficulty.
also about jenesis , i cant say anything about him since i personally dont mind with his "harsh" review and vision bout the game. and his past review make my very first event which is dreaded summer event like walk in the park (in the end i just can finish E3 and up easy because my dumbness about shiplocking system). again thanks jenesis for your in depth review
TL;DR thanks to everyone in here who gave a input both for me and other ttk, also goodluck streamspoats for your first A class medal
Again, I stress Harsh is for summer, the bar is reduced a lot for fall as we expect a much easier event.
Generally speaking lvl 80+ is fine for hard mode. Ideally you should be able to assemble 2 Combined fleet (1 Surface + 1 Carrier) all 80+. What I pointed out are just stuff you want to work on.
Like i said, none of those are critical and must be solved ASAP. They are all luxury and just something you want to improve on when you got time. To give you an idea on what to do next. Hope that make sense.
I mean your fleet is ready, but there are always stuff to work on.
Equipment, you can start slow, big guns like 41cm (46cm) are hard to rush to +4 or higher. like having 4X 41+1 is great already. Eventually you will get them higher. However equipment are easier to upgrade like 91 AP shell, Quint Oxy tropedo / 20.3 (no3) (although they eat a bit of screw, but no equipment) should be aim to +4 ~~ +6.
Resources is not a huge problem too, Sitting at soft cap is perfectly fine even for hard mode. However you do want to save as much buckets as possible. And factor in how much expedition you can run during the event. (less meaning you need to stockpile more). Baxuite is the least used resources for the event, 20-30k is fine. I woudlnt worry too much about it.
Daily crafting of heavy gun/radar is better reseved for off-season. During stockpile mode, you dont really want to do it because it just take away too much resources. (it is not efficient while you are above soft cap) Hence i suggest just craft Anti-SS gear.
I would say set your target after having knowledge of how hard the event is and what kind of reward is offered.
I thought i will be lucky to clear all easy in Spring (back like 6 months ago lol, geez time flies). But I soon realized (few days into event) it was really easy, so I pushed for all hard and got it quite easily.
You should defintely push some eariler maps in hard at the very least.
yeah i understand what you mean, in short your review is for "future proofing" my fleet, and i deeply understand that
about equipment upgrade, i already +6 all type 91, quint torps, 20cm no 3, 35,6 cm, and a few 20 cm no 2 +4(note: i upgrade this equipment long before i posted this request, since i remember your suggestion in past thread)
but not heavy guns (already done 3x 41cm +4 and 2x 38 cm kai +1 also long before this request) which is slow for me since i'm currently in stockpile mode so i cant find the spare heavy guns. and again my heavy gun upgrade route is for future plan after the upcoming event.
the reason i'm not 100% targeting all hard because of my limited time playing, and my main goal in the upcoming event is a A class medal + event exclusive ship/equipment.
but that depends on info from frontliner what kind difficulty of upcoming event will be, i'll definetly try beat all hard if all condition met (note: i cannot go into emergency stockpiling mode if i ran out resource in the middle of event)
thanks for your time jenesis! and goodluck for the upcoming event
Look at what Musashi do to that dyson and Yamato do to the AA hime. Sure, they're both lvl 12x, but still, how's that even possible??!! Cause my lvl 70 Musashi couldn't do even half of that. Furthermore, Bismarck can finish the AA hime in the day battle. That amaze me even more. Can those be achieved with fully improved guns and AP shells? Cause if so, I think I gonna have to make a plan for both short term and long term crafting and improvement ASAP.
By the way, I think there's something wierd in that battle's engagement form, since the screen says the mix of both parallel and Green T, which is odd. It's unlikely to be a cheat, is it?
If its a cheat, the youtube video will received plenty of dislikes and comments pointing out about it. It's more of about RNG on thiis ttk side with lots of late game weapons.(you saw lots of prototype equipments in those BBs didn't you) Hence, this ttk is more likely to beat E-7.
Should be possible with ~260 armor (he said he did 10 X and 7 Y). If you take the day battle attack power cap into consideration, the difference between 150 FP and 200 FP damage ranges isn't that big (talking about Nagato vs Yamato classes), like +5-10 damage (if it's not red T or head-on, duh)? For improvements (+~10 FP) it should be +0-few damage (but you also get accuracy and it's better in night battle).
Thx you both for answer. Yeah, 10x and 7 Y is insane and should make lots of difference. But what I really wonder is "Does improving guns and shells really help to that extent?" and that fleet doesn't seem to be affected by STF's accuracy penalty at all. And if you speak about prototype guns, I have 2 35.6 prototype guns, unimproved (since it's not improvable, is it?), and they were hopeless in E7.
That engagment form at 9:38 still nags me, cause is that even possble? And since it says both of those, what's the actual damage modifer for that combat?
"+0-few damage" from improved equipment: 2 +10 improved guns, 1 +10 improved AP -> around +10 FP under cap, damage bonus = 0-3, to that extent. You can experiment with http://kancollecalc.web.fc2.com/damage.html. It also so happened that I did 10 X and 7 Y, too, those were +6 41s and +9 AP (should give around +10 accuracy together), Nagato still did 57 damage :3 Also, this was parallel engagement form, and all I see at 9:38 is red 単縦陣 (enemy in line-ahead), green 第四警戒航行序列 (fourth formation for combined fleet, see Combined Fleet, maybe you mistook 四 for 同?) and green T (T字戦（有利）).
About prototype equipment, 35.6 improved is better than 35.6 prototype, same for 41 and 46, my current impression is that you only want 51.
So the effect of improvements on attack power is determined by attack cap behavior which is effectively determined by pre-cap modifiers: engagement, formation, anti-ground and health modifiers, let's assume normal health (i.e. it's important) and no anti-ground, then FP - Damage (vs 260 armor) curve is something like this (for different formations, critical hits, but no other post-cap modifiers):
add +10 FP for STF first fleet, +10 FP for all improved equipment, etc. So sometimes it matters, sometimes not.
And then you have post-cap modifiers: spotting, critical, AP modifiers (they can sometimes double the damage) and ammo penalty.
i over-reacted in that thread after reading your last sentence. It got me worried for the whole day, only to find it a joke. I guess i'm too serious about things zzz...thanks for the message, i guess i will leave any ignorant comment alone from now on. I forgive you though.
I've seen you've just given my friend some more advice, so I check your fleet and I gotta say your fleet is way more hardcore than mine, despite I started 2 months earlier.
But now, I have some question.
1. How did you put that menu and sub-menus in your profile? I wanna write my profile as well and I've been looking for that for days.
2 in the following DD, is there anyone worth pushing? Now that I have a reason not to, it makes me lazy now.
(Fubuki, Ushio : I have Teru-chan now. Mutsuki and Kisaragi: I have Amatsukaze Kai engine now. Z1,Z3, Hibiki, Murakumo, Hatsuharu : Nah, not that appealing. Hatsushimo : can dat luck really compensate her so-so firepower?)
3. My Chitose, Chiyoda and Jun'you are lvl 80+, and Hiyou is 90 +, is Ryuujou worth pushing as well?
Thanks, i spend hours everyday so i can properly prepare for any events (medium/hard for now). Thus, i might be hardcore a little.
1.The sub-menus in my profile page is borrowed from my friend. Its rather complicated to edit if you're not good in coding and stuff. If you look into source mode under classic editor, its a bunch of words and numbers that is hard to understand.
It also take hours to be able to get a decent profile. If you're really into it, you may try to copy & paste all the code( starting from the line ' < tabber > ' all the way to the line ' < / tabber > ' )into your profile and modify it.( However, do not click the publish button in my profile. Just exit the page.)
After you have copy and paste, replace the words and letters as shown in the light blue box.
2. Hatsushimo is currently ranked 2nd for best luck stats next to Yukikaze, she has above good torpedo stats just like Yukikaze as well as AACI. Thus making her a good torp/AA cut in ship. What you're lacking now is some high luck ships which is useful in the event. Try to look for Shigure, Yukikaze and Hatsushimo.
In my case, Yukikaze is the only high luck ship of that time, saved me twice during the Summer 2015. She rekts E-6 and E-7 boss in my first event. Without her, i won't stand a chance to get Teruzuki in E-7 and maybe the prototype for Shoukaku kai ni tommorow.
3. I can't really say much about Ryuujou, but having more CVL is a good thing. Therefore, push Ryuujou to kai ni for reserve ship.
Wow, thx. I'll try and crack it up and make my profile when I get home. ^^
Regarding high luck DDs. Didn't know that luck effects AACI as well. So, her firepower is a bit compromised but still worth pushing, alright.
I didn't mentioned Ayanami cause she's already in my queue.
Shigure, because of the event, became the highest lvl DD in my fleet now. (lvl.84) but she didn't do much since she always got red or orange before the boss node first.
I think we just talked about Yukikaze below, i almost forgot about it in this message. Having extra luck stats ship is always welcome in my opinion. You never know what the devs prepare for us, you might even ended up using all 3 high luck DD just to clear the event due to shiplocking.
Speaking of high luck ships, now I have 5 Maruyus Kai ready to be eaten, but I'm still hesitate that who should be taking them. Kitakami K2 or Haruna K2?
Sure, Kitakami's night battle potential's far more devastating but she's more fragile than Haruna, hence less survivability. Not to mention that Haruna's luck is nearer to what I call "Guarantee cut in" line, which is around 50.
I don't usually do LSC so i don't have an exact answer to your question. I think that Maruyu should be given to ships with good cut-in purpose. If you have other ships other than Kitakami & Haruna, try giving it to the high priority ships with great luck like Shigure, Yukikaze etc. Otherwise, its Kitakami instead.
It's pointless to feed maruyu's to Shigure and Yukikaze because there's either a hard cap on torp cut ins at 50 luck, or diminishing returns past 50 luck. It's better to feed Maruyu's to ships close to the luck cap like Ayanami or Prinz. If you can spare a slot for skilled lookout, you can feed maruyu's to ships that carry it to 30 luck. Abukuma is also a good candidate for luck feeding since a torp cut in set up will also make her opening torpedo attack stronger.
that's some interesting challenge you have there :3 I too, trying to be non-premium user and see how far I can going with that, though now I'm already on tight side, especially ships slot ._. (96/100). And docking became a pain too with only 2 docks especially after many 4-3 runs
though the rules I set for myself a bit different from you, but that's doesn't matter. Glad there's someone I can share the pain with :p Let's do our best and see how it going :3
Damn me, it's great to see you getting challenged as well. Getting close to the game limit is a real pain expecially after event. Though i got lots of rare DD & need to 'disband' them, its good to keep them as 'mecenary' for expedition and equipments. BTW, if you're having a hard time to dock, you better look for Akashi cuz she is good for repairing 2~3 lightly damaged kanmusu. In theory, you have maximum of 5 repair docks.
Meanwhile, i'm also thinking of a harder difficulty for a great challenge aka Non-premium Fully 'Kuso' TTK Challenge (Legendary Difficulty). But, that's another story for another day :P
sure, it's not really that different, just exclude "no marriage" part, since I already has a ring from quest, and I plan to marry one (and only one) ship, dunno who though... have some candidates but still can't decide. Also I set no particular goal or winning conditions too, I just want to see how far I can go (by how far mostly I talk about how long my ships and equipments slot can hold, though ._.)
btw, why you doesn't want to marry your girl? even though you can get one ring for free
Cuz marriage increases efficiency and performance of married kanmusu, making the game much more easy. This is also part of the upcoming 'kuso' challenge which involves 'disbanding' of entire fleet except for event's reward ship. It's going to be a real salty challenge :D
I do upload Kancolle clips on Youtube, but it's mainly for just my self-satisfaction and for a bit of sharing with my small circle of friends so I don't promote much. But since you help me a lot, not only with preparations, but you also pushed me when my confidence withered and my strength waned, I think you should see this.
I'm glad to hear from you, the video link you given me is satisfying too. Having a healthy 2nd fleet to enter night battle + taking down other 4 abyssal ships is a really huge advantage. That's not all, your Atago even rekt the Air Defence Princess is truly something rare to see.
To be honest, i didn't bother to open my eyes when i enter E-7 final stage. The only thing i heard is torpedo cut-in and the whining of Air Defence Princess. It's most likely be Yukikaze's torpedo cut-in but it looks somewhat similar to your fleet.
Well, Autumn Event is coming next(extimated around early November) and it's going to be a stroll walk. Not to mention that there is another foreign ships and another Prototype Flight Deck Catapault + Shoukaku kai ni coming around this month. It's something we're looking forward to. Enjoy the Autumn!
In the end, RNG did not deem me worthy and I couldn't rescue Kazagumo and Unryuu from the abyssal fleet. I guess that makes my E8 an A-rank victory. :P Much like my E7 last dance, in which my chuuha'd Yukikaze decided enough was enough and she would save us all from that hellhole.
Looking on the bright side, this leaves me with a much, much stronger fleet (E6 EXP is nothing to be sneezed at) than when I started and more goals for the next event. Wait for me, Kazagumo (and Unryuu), I will find you next time. And I did actually get a 'gumo from E6... Asagumo! I guess that's pretty lucky, judging by the drop rate on kancolle-db. Time for YOLO LSC! After the maintenance. :D
My Yukikaze also saved me from the madness caused in E-7. In fact, i entered boss node 12 times. Not only that, i'm also part of the 30% who cleared E-7 before kancolle twitter report on the 1st September. As i'm typing, i felt sad to see many failed to clear E-7 along the way. However, lets not talk about this sad moments for this chat.
Thanks to the major events, i've also leveled up quite alot with my fleet girls thanks to E-3 - Medium, E-6 - Medium & E-7 Easy. The result can be showned in my profile page as compared to my fleet last 2 months. (shown on right)
For blueprint, Jenesis33 said the next blueprint should be given to Abukuma cuz of E-7. I already remodel Tone and Fusou to kai ni, so it might be a good idea to remodel her next. Meanwhile, i'm training my fleet a little bit before i attempt LSC, not to mentioned the ones i really need to disband after i kai them for their equipments.
Sounds pretty sad, but i have no other choice. My fleet size already reached 95 mostly and can't hold for the future events. On the other hand however, i will keep my favourite ones like Naganami and Tokisukaze for fun.
Meantime, i'm trying to get weapons upgrade to prepare for a new formidable fleet. I'm aiming to become powerful non-cash ttk as well.(sort of)
Yeah... Sad to see that RNG trolled some TTKs to the very last moment. And there was that guy who screeched and howled and cried the entire time in his stream. (Though that was probably more disturbing than saddening.)
Abukuma is a great investment, I can tell you that! Although I only managed to K2 her like a week before the event ended, she did really great. Her opening torpedo strike is invaluable, often taking out enemy ships or at the very least chuuha them and lessen the risk of my girls getting hurt by the closing torpedo salvo. And of course the fact that she still remains a CL after K2. In fact, she was so helpful I think I might even give her my next batch of Maruyus. She can perform cut-ins pretty well when in flagship position even though her luck is only 20. The devs sure did succeed in keeping all CLTs out of all the difficult maps in this event!
My next blueprint would likely go to Choukai (simply because I like her) or Tone (great stats). Maybe Tone first. I'll give my fleet (and myself) a break for a few days, let resources recover a bit, find another submarine and then start training again. I hope to K2 all of my CAs and Souryuu & Hiryuu by the next event. Also need to get the lv70 K2 DDs like Akatsuki there, they're already close but not close enough so they didn't make it in time for the event.
My fleet size is also 95 right now...Found so many rare and adorable DDs this time! I might cave and buy maybe 20 ship slots, but I'm putting that off for as long as possible. :P Ship slots are the only thing I would ever consider paying for. I should manage just fine for a while more once I get the equipment from duplicate Mutsus. (I had no Mutsu before the event. I found 4 or 5 in the event. Wow.)
Sounds like you are well on the way to your goal! Now that you have Akashi in your fleet, she'll aid you with equipment upgrade and act as extra ship repair docks. Very very helpful if you have only 2 repair docks like me.
I can't upgrade weapons yet... No Akashi. Airfield Hime wouldn't give her to me. Oh well at least I got Umikaze and Kiyoshimo from her. I think I will search for Akashi all the way till my HQ hits level 100. Hopefully I will have found her by then... I have actually been looking for her in 2-5 ever since my HQ was around 65 or so. :/ Maybe she'll come while I'm doing September's EO? A man can dream.

Yup, heard of him. Not going to say much about him. Twitch session makes me sad.
You helped me out in the fleet preparation forum before the event started. I'm here to thank you and tell you that I managed to clear all 7 maps! There's only one tiny regret and that is I panicked, decided to choose Teruzuki over the prototype catapult and cleared E6 on easy. And then the devs announced that the event would be extented. Oh well. Sorry, Zuikaku. Almost finished with E8 now, just need to find Kazagumo and Unryuu. I really like Kazagumo and hope to find her before my resources run dry. Man, Combined Fleet maps... Wish me luck!
I'm glad to hear that from you. To tell the truth, i was never an experienced player. I just joined in the middle of Spring 2015 Event(didn't enter event cuz reasons), sucks to be me cuz i waited 2 weeks for lottery entry. I rode through quite alot and learn alot within these 4 months.
I first suggested fleet prepared-ness board in June and wikia moderator is kind enough to try it out. It was an important move i think, or else u and i or worst, many will get stuck around E-3~E-6. I'm not sure about the countless number of people i had advice from the first 2 week of July, i felt a little ashamed for my lack of experience cuz it was not effective enough for them to clear all the way to E-6 medium.
But look at the bright side, at least i know a few who have cleared E-7 just like you. I even felt blessed after spending hours everyday, all effort was paid off when i cleared E-7 with lots of rare ships such as Roma while i'm clearing the event. So yeah end of story, hope to help more new ttks for the upcoming event with better experience from this salty event. (you may join in if u want, the more ppl the better)
Hopefully you will find Kazagumo and Unryuu sooner before the event. Good Luck & Good Hunting! o7
Oh wow! You and I joined the game at the same time! I didn't enter the spring event either. Had no idea what I was doing back then, plus I was also playing Touken Ranbu.
It was a great idea to have a fleet preparation board, otherwise the whole forum would be cluttered with ttks' posts asking which ship to train, what equipment to craft...etc. Chinese/Taiwanese forums have fleet preparation boards too. (Some of the older ttks there seem a bit intimidating so I've never posted there.)
This event was a great experience, sure the difficulty (cough*E7*cough) is daunting and RNG could be pretty fustrating, but it was extremely satisfying to clear all the maps and find many rare ships along the way. Back in July I wasn't even sure I could clear it all, since I have heard that summer events are the most challenging. (All those legends about AL/MI) I was fully prepared to not be able to clear the event and just farm for rare ships on the first few maps. Look where I am now. Pretty amazing.
It's very kind of you to help new ttks, and I hope to be of help too! KanColle can be pretty challenging and newbies could always use some advice. See you around! o7
