  • What is the source for the following information?  I cannot find another source that corroborates.

    The following effects do not occur:

    1. Ships equipped with searchlights are aimed at more often. 
    2. Ships equipped with searchlights are hit more often.

    • and theres a mistake in the info. Battleship and CLT cant equip searchlight. Only DD, CL, CA, CAV, AV and fast BB can.

    • Historically... the Kongou-class was equipped with searchlights.. so i guess that explains it..

    • For the effects I used dranzerstar's translation at: 

      http://kancolle.himeuta.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=432

      Reading the patch notes I think this is true though although my Japanese is very rudimentary. 

      As for the equippable ships I can't really say much since I don't have my own lights (Jintsuu isn't even level 10) but I took the information from here:

      http://wikiwiki.jp/kancolle/?%C3%B5%BE%C8%C5%F4

      The BB tag is open so I assumed that BBs could use it. I'll correct it if it has'nt been already (internet doesn't load wikia pages well for some reason)

    • reading that twitter message a bit more carefully though, I think "そして、史実ほどではありませんが…" means something along the lines of

      "Although not as much as in reality..." -Ships equipped with searchlights are aimed at and hit more often.

      So my interpretation of that message is that it has only a slight effect, although I could be wrong, as I'm not fluent in Japanese.

      This is my understanding of this equipment effect as well, which is why I posed the question.

    • I'd like to wait for confirmation tests but you've already changed it, so might as well leave it as it is for the time being.

    • Why should we need to test it before changing it?  The official tweets are not ambiguous at all in their wording.  Leaving it as it was seemed to be the greater sin.
