DMM will perform a platform maintenance on March 16, 2015 at 10:00 to 15:00 JST. This is a dedicated discussion thread to prevent spam on the Recent Updates page with questions why players are not able to login during this time.
Tomorrow, from 10am to 3pm, maintenance will be carried out on the DMM platform. In that period of time, basic mechanics like login and purchase of premium items will be down, thus it is not possible to play. It would be good to take note of this. For more detailed information, please visit DMM's Announcements.
Are they implementing Choukai Kai Ni?
No. This is a DMM maintenance, not a Game Update. The website DMM is not the developer of Kantai Collection. See diagram at Tutorial:_Proxy_Connection#How_it_works to see the architecture and difference between entities.
Can I use API Link instead?
No, you're also gonna get CatBombed that way. Just live and exist in the real world for now, it's just 5 hours.
no wonder my game screen just suddenly went offline... =3= On one hand, what exactly is "platform maintenance"?
I REALLY REALLY wish they're not going to kill cookie method, same as dmm.co.jp
I think that's the method everybody uses (at least I use it), they can't do that!! I don't wanna play only with VPN!! :(. But I'll have to see until tomorrow. It's almost midnight here. Whoever can right after they finish should check and make a notice.
