    Hints and Advice

    • Make sure your fleet is prepared in all departments (Ex. Do not neglect your AV, SS, and/or AO).
    • Make sure to prepare a large amount of resources.
      • Give at least 1 month of time to start stockpiling your resources.
    • Make sure to prepare a good amount of Aircrafts with good stats, especially with large range for Land Base Aerial Support and for your Aircraft Carriers (Ex. Do not neglect your Skilled Aircraft Conversion Monthly Quests as they give good aircrafts and are excellent to use in Land Base Aerial Support).
    • Do not jump into the Event on Day 1 if you aren't a Frontliner. Wait for the Frontliners to gather/publish confirmed fleet compositions and branching rules for each Event Maps. Be patient.
      • Some Information may turn out to be false or half-confirmed so please be patient until all information are completely verified first.
    • Most important advice: Keep your sanity high.

    • Yeah looks like Fubuki class riggings to me with the "tri-pod" masts and all (also the shoes closesly resembles Fubuki class rather than Yuugumo class). Looks like Hatakaze would have what looks like curly hair with either a hair ornament or tied up in a bun....or something.

      Same here. Just had slot expansion last month, and I thought that I could spend the rest of my DMM Points to unlock the last dock slot for this event. But after reading all info about the new girls here, I think its very difficult not to have another slot expansion. . . yeah, maybe I just buy more points during the event *sigh*

      Looks awfully close to current drew's artwork. Blocky boots with handles on them, masts, torpedo launchers.

      Not Sagiri, though. She sank really early and by dutch submarine, of all things.

    • Comptiq September 2017 Issue has released the following info

      Summer Event Info

      • Event has 4 Main Operation + 3 Extra Operation and will have 7 New Ship Girls
      • Some of the New Ship Girls are available to obtain from E-1, and by clearing E-2, you will be able to obtain Hatakaze
      • E-4 Reward is the Battleship
      • The Foreign Submarine seems to point to the Italian Submarine Comandante Cappellini.
      • E-7 Reward is the Royal Navy Carrier who has relations to Swordfish (Ark Royal highly likely)
      • Main Operations will mostly consist of Japanese Ships while Extra Operations will consist being able to meet Large European Ships. (Warspite?)

      Other Future Contents

      • The Kai-2 of a Powerful Foreign Large Aircraft Carrier is incoming (likely pointing to Saratoga)
      • More Kai-2 remodel are planned for the remainder of this year.
      • By the 5th Anniversary some Frontend system updates for the game will be implemented but there won't that huge of a difference much.

      • The Foreign Submarine seems to point to the Italian Submarine Comandante Cappellini.
      • E-7 Reward is the Royal Navy Carrier who has relations to Swordfish (Ark Royal highly likely)
      • Main Operations will mostly consist of Japanese Ships while Extra Operations will consist being able to meet Large European Ships. (Warspite?)

      Other Future Contents

      • The Kai-2 of a Powerful Foreign Large Aircraft Carrier is incoming (likely pointing to Saratoga)
      • More Kai-2 remodel are planned for the remainder of this year.
      • By the 5th Anniversary some Frontend system updates for the game will be implemented but there won't that huge of a difference much.

      Well... AV are quite rare, only 6 so far with 2 of them mostly used as CVL, one being useless since she can take only large boat and another one with low stat and plane slot. (right now 18 BB and 13 CV in game). Summer 2015 gave us one powerful/Daihatsu mule DD, one Akizuki class, one submarine killer/pedotrap, + 2 normal DD and a regular AO (the only one if you keep Kamoi as AV). Maybe not shiny reward like BB or CV, but useful one.

      If you want to talk about useless drop, maybe you can have a look at Winter 2017, 2 SS and one DD so far... yeap.

    • By questionning the variety, I meant that we got only light ships, even if thoses can do the various things you mentionned =).

      Winter 17 was a deception in all cases :/

      The point of my edit was to point the fact having 7 new ships is quite generous from the Devs since yeah, they only added 3 during Winter 17. Also in those 7 news ships, we have DD, SS, BB and CV at least, which is different from the variety among the classes of ships we got in Summer 15, were there was only "light" ships.

      It's either that or Luigi Torelli. The interview mentioned that after a very eventful service history in Europe, the new sub was finally transferred to Japan. Cappellini became I-503 while Torelli became 504.

      It is indeed one of the primary possible candidates, as the interview actually stated a "new type" (新銳) BB.

      The only ship to be dubbed "新銳" so far is the Agano-class CL(seen in Agano's introduction line), and Agano was laid down in 1940. Richelieu was laid down in 1935, and Dunkerque in 1932, so it would be hard to imagine, at this point, anything older than Dunkerque being dubbed "新銳".

      Japan abolished the classification of Battlecruisers after Kongo-class received their first modernization (which caused their speed to drop, and after they regained their speed later, the classificaiton was not resurrected), so they will refer to Dunkerque, Hood, Alaska, and the like as battleships anyway.

      They had the classification "Fast BB" tho. Kongou never faced a reduction of speed, because the new engines were included in the modernization. I think the new shipgirl will be Dunkerque, becasue she was the beginning of the concept "modern battleship"

      Well she didn't say anything about Dunkerque, but French BB (wich mean 4 ship). I really hope it's the cardinal, her history is way more interessing and she will be more useful than Dunkerque (wich is a bit weak for BB)

      Quality over quantity is always superior. The Chinese designs are pretty sub-par IMO, and don't seem to include subtle references to historical events in the designs and personalities. 

      Plus, honestly? No I'd rather they introduce ships slowly. That way I'm more likely to get them all. Events with 7+ new ships make me nervouse because that's asking a lot of RNG-sama.

      No, they are not. It takes time to draw new CGs, it takes time to record new voices, and so on. If you check the interviews you will find a statement that some of the new ships haven't had their voices recorded at the time of the interview (as in <1 week before the start of the event). There's a limit to how many ships the devs can prepare in three months, while putting K2s, seasonals and the like into the game on the mean time.

      Let me remind you that the Warship Girls have less seasonal contents, (do they even have "seasonal" CGs? those are "special" CGs introduced without a regular timetable, right?), don't have K2s (in fact some of the girls don't even have Kai), and do not necessarily come with voices. Also, the ACG industry in China is less developed, which means the illustrators in China are less likely to be overbooked, and thus the devs are less likely to have to join a queue.

      The ships in that game do have special variant CGs, though they're not strictly seasonal.  I believe they're also costumes that you can apply whenever you choose once obtained, which is something I'd like in KC.  Nenohi would be in New Year wear all the time.

      I also could be wrong, but I don't think every illustrator for it is Chinese.  And let's not pretend that KC doesn't have some lingering quality concerns from its first generation, though thankfully having god-like beings like Shizuma Yoshinori and Parsley around distract from cases like Aoba's, and UGUME became amazing.

      Yeah I don't have any schedules tomorrow thankfully. There was a meeting tomorrow but it got cancelled, so I think I can jump in right after the Maintenance to Frontline and Live Stream :D

    • Also I would like to throw some cents in for limiting the number of new ships. A bit of balance. It is much easier to overreach when adding in too much stuff. Also there's a dissolution of fan attention. If we got 12 new girls an event, it'd hard to rally behind the important ones and we'd have a much harsher opinion about trophy DDs, since only a few can be 'the best' yet we'd be getting barrels full of them in every update. Pace thyself.

      I wonder how many players actually KNEW back in Summer 15 that there was Kazagumo available in E-6 and E-7, and how many really tried to farm her.

      Then she was available in the next Event's E-1 even on Pre-boss node ! Maybe as an apologize for being too hard to farm or to say "Hey look, there was this girl in Summer Event, remember her ?"

    • When they said something about battleship the first thing in my mind is HMS Vanguard (or King George V-class). But with Britain already had an aircraft carrier and Italian have a submarine, the reward battleship would be French by candidate elimination. And Richilieu-class is the latest battleship line from France.

      Swordfish omen

      ch137p5

      Speaking of which, last year, Bismarck was blockaded by literal swordfishes in E3 last year, because of the local legends in Malaya and Singapore had Singapore being stabbed by swarms of flying swordfish. Come this summer, we now have the actual Fairey Swordfish that crippled the historical battleship... which makes me wonder whether this events have further connections with Fairey Swordfish than it meets the eye...

      RICHELLLLIEEUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      It is indeed one of the primary possible candidates, as the interview actually stated a "new type" (新銳) BB.

      The only ship to be dubbed "新銳" so far is the Agano-class CL(seen in Agano's introduction line), and Agano was laid down in 1940. Richelieu was laid down in 1935, and Dunkerque in 1932, so it would be hard to imagine, at this point, anything older than Dunkerque being dubbed "新銳".

      Yeah maybe but they talk new BB type Dunkerque is not really a BB is a Battle cruiser so it's possible it's Dunkerque but i hope is Richelieu
      Japan abolished the classification of Battlecruisers after Kongo-class received their first modernization (which caused their speed to drop, and after they regained their speed later, the classificaiton was not resurrected), so they will refer to Dunkerque, Hood, Alaska, and the like as battleships anyway.

      They had the classification "Fast BB" tho. Kongou never faced a reduction of speed, because the new engines were included in the modernization. I think the new shipgirl will be Dunkerque, becasue she was the beginning of the concept "modern battleship"

      On the other side, I wish all the frontliners good luck on this madness, and keep your sanity until the end.

      Actually they don't, Kongo-class being referred to as a fast BB only happens outside the IJN, it was never an official classification..

      Kongo did face a reduction of speed in her first remodel in 1924 (Haruna), 1927 (Kirishima), 1928 (Kongo), their speed dropped to 25.9, 26.3,26.0 knots, respectively (Kongo-class was able to go at 27 knots as built). Hiei received a different remodel into a practice battleship, so she was not part of this remodel. The Kongo-class we know in KC is after their 2nd remodel, starting in 1934 from Haruna, which once again boosted their speed to above 30 knots.

      To be fair no hints have been given regarding the BB nor the French ship and there is still an extra 7th new Kanmusu of whom we don't know anything about...

      So technically the new French Kanmusu can be either the BB or that unknown wild ship.

      But there is a high chance she ends to be the BB indeed. If that is the case, i guess it to be a Dunkerque class rather than the Richelieu.

      The only Japanese BB left was Super-Yamato, which is extremely unlikely in this event.

      So the BB in this event will definitely be foreign, and foreign means French, British or Italian, as hints have shown.

      The British got a CV, the Italian got a SS, so the BB has to be French, easy as that.

      And now you can look at the twitter picture, it's Richelieu.

      most likely, she'd have the attributes of Littorio and Roma: agility and very long range. But the 38 cm quad gun mount had the same dispersion problems as the Italian 381 mm triples due to how they were built, which means same accuracy and EVA drawbacks as the Italian guns.

      The main gun of the Italian BBs have a shell velocity of 910m/s, the Richelieu's only has 785. The main reason why the Italians have poor accuracy is because the unusually high velocity caused the barrel to be worn out very quickly, a problem Richelieu would most likely not encounter.


      BTW, Richelieu had 56x 40mm Bofors and 50x 20mm Oerlikons, that's some very serious AA fire, I would say.

      most likely, she'd have the attributes of Littorio and Roma: agility and very long range. But the 38 cm quad gun mount had the same dispersion problems as the Italian 381 mm triples due to how they were built, which means same accuracy and EVA drawbacks as the Italian guns.
      The main gun of the Italian BBs have a shell velocity of 910m/s, the Richelieu's only has 785. The main reason why the Italians have poor accuracy is because the unusually high velocity caused the barrel to be worn out very quickly, a problem Richelieu would most likely not encounter.


      BTW, Richelieu had 56x 40mm Bofors and 50x 20mm Oerlikons, that's some very serious AA fire, I would say.

      Richelieu's guns had originaly a shell velocity of 830m/s but changed to 785m/s after a refit in 1942. After her refit in the USA in 1943, she fired US shells and had a shell velocity of 800m/s.

      The main problem for the inaccuracy of the Richelieu was caused by the close proximity of the barrels of her guns like the Dunkerque (same problem than some Italian and US cruisers). This problem was resolved post-war by adding delay coils to the center guns.

      The italians guns were as powerful as a 16-inch, with even longer range. Richelieu's were not as powerful, so they will be more like Bismarck's or a little better than Warspite's

      For those commenting on accuracy, the reason for the italain guns being so inaccurate, was because they didn't constructed shells of regular quality, resulting in unpredictable patterns because of mistakes in the construction of some shells. The french guns were more accurate, but they were nothing special.

      The delay coils were introduced by the Japanese and british in the mid 30s, as japanese heavy cruisers and british new battleships and light cruisers had dispersion problems, that was the solution thought off, emulated by the americans and germans during WWII and by the italians, russians and french after the war

      On the other hand there's 4 guns by turret. So maybe huge FP bonus, along with high accuracy penalty. I gess our cardinal will have less FP than bisko and Warspite, but will become the same once equiped with her two main gun.

      The Italians 15 inch guns were not as strong as US 16 inch guns of the same era...

      Their shells had way less bursting charge than the US 16 inch shells and even less than the Richelieu's shells. Their shell velocity of 850m/s (and not 910m/s...) gave them indeed a longer range and a better striking velocity than other 15 inch guns (and thus a better deck penetration) but it was still inferior to the US 16 inch guns armor penetration capability.

      If navweaps can be trusted, the Littorio class' guns had around the same armor penetration than the Richelieu.

      Also, originaly since the Richelieu had a shell velocity of 830m/s, she had a max range of around 41.7 km but with her refit and firing US shells her range dropped to around 37 km.

      So if she will have either long or very long range depends on the devs.

      My guess is she will be inbetween  Littorio and Bisko stat wise but with better AA in Kai form.

      As for her guns, better FP than Italian guns, +1 armor, maybe very long range (?), but -EVA and -ACCU. The question is will they have worse accuracy than the Italians or not ?

      That first statement is really misleading as the 16 inch guns came with a rather wide variety of power, qualities, and penetrating characteristics. For example, the Nelsons' guns were not equal to the Nagato, both were different from the North Carolinas' and with the Iowas' 16 inch standing out amongst all of them. You're better off comparing it to the guns of specific ships than throwing out a whole entire gun calibre.

      The unpreditable dispersion pattern of the Italian 380 cm guns were mostly attributed to poor powder quality and a short barrel life; the guns had rather decent, predictable dispersion under ideal conditions during their early trials. The French guns had a dispersion problem in a similar fashion the the Kirov class cruisers with vibrations from firing turrets packed with closely-fitted guns causing the issue.

      And even though delay coils may have existed for a while prior to WWII, not all ships that needed them got them. The Richelieu didn't get hers until 1947-8 when the French started looking into modern gun fier control systems because it would be pointless to fit an aimbot onto a ship if dispersion meant you still couldn't hit anything. "Richelieu had delay coils for the center guns of each turret fitted in 1947-1948 when a tighter dispersion pattern was desired in order to take the maximum advantage of radar fire control" (Navweaps.com).
