    New Event Hard to Easier Difficulty Change Mechanic

    • Starting from this Event, if you happen to be in Medium (乙) OR Hard (甲) Mode and have at the time depleted a high volume of the Boss total HP Bar, but decide to change down into an Easier Difficulty, your progress from the higher difficulty will be applied to the lower difficulty to a certain level.
      • Hidden Gimmicks Required are different depending on the Difficulty played.
      • If you change your difficulty down from a Hard/Medium into an Easier Difficulty, the Gimmick(s) you have already accomplished will be inherited onto the Lower Difficulty you have chosen up to an extent.
      • At certain Maps, if you were in progress of doing Hard Mode, but change your difficulty down to Easy Mode, then there are chances that a New Operation Route may appear in the Map.

    New Difficulty: "Very Easy (丁)" Mode

      • They are for Admirals who are extremely busy with Life, and hasn't been able to play all that much as well, but wish to clear the Event.

    Friend Fleet

    • The Friend Fleet is a NPC Support Fleet that appears during the Night Battle Phase of a Boss Battle in certain Event Maps to support your fleet in sinking the Boss.
      • In certain Event Maps when you are against the Main Boss of the Map, when your Fleet enters the Night Battle Phase against the Boss, before your fleet initiates their attack against the Boss, the Friend Fleet will appear to attack the Boss first.
      • The Friend Fleets have multiple Fleets with preset Ships and Equipment Setups.
      • The Ships appearing in the Friend Fleet are Non-Modernized.

    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 yourself 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 Initial Information may turn out to be partially confirmed, so please be patient until all information are completely verified first if you wish for a more smoother time running your Event.
    • Most important advice: Keep your sanity high.

    For this event we've changed the progress bar system so that if you switch from a high difficulty level such as Hard Mode or Medium to an easier one and, for example, have already chipped away a large chunk of the HP gauge, you'll be able to keep your progress to a certain extent.

    本イベより、「甲」作戦や「乙」作戦などの高い作戦難易度から、より簡単な作戦難易度に変更する場合、敵戦力ゲージを大きく削っていたケースなどではそれまでの作戦進捗の成果がある程度活かされる形に実装を更新予定です。

    Musashi, second ship of the Yamato-class battleships, is going to receive her second refit at the same the time we're done implementing this winter event. The remodelled Yamato-class battleship "Musashi K2" will feature a fifth equipment slot. Whether it's several main batteries, anti-air equipment, radars, or a combination of new boilers and turbines, as a huge and powerful battleship she'll be able to use a large variety of different setups.

    今回の冬イベ実装/開幕と同時に、大和型戦艦二番艦「武蔵」、その改二改装「武蔵改二」を実装予定です。改装大和型戦艦「武蔵改ニ」は第五装備スロットを持つ改ニ改装艦です。多数の大口径主砲や対空装備、電探、新型缶やタービンの組み合わせなど強力な大型戦艦として多彩な運用が可能です。

    JP

    As usual veteral admirals will be able to select Hard Mode, Medium Mode etc. The required gimmicks you'll have to unlock to progress through maps will differ depending on the selected difficulty level. Even if you try a high difficulty level only to switch to a lower one halfway through the progress you've made for a map gimmick will carry over to a certain extent

    従来通り、歴戦の提督方は「甲作戦」や「乙作戦」の選択も可能です。作戦遂行に必要な作戦ギミックは、選択した作戦難易度によって異なります。高難易度作戦に挑み、途中まで作戦を進行させて低難易度に移行した場合でも、作戦ギミックの進捗はある程度引き継ぎ可能です。

    JP

    As the map gimmicks differ between difficulty levels such as Hard Mode or Easy Mode, should you make progress in a map on Hard Mode up until a certain point and then lower that map's difficulty level, a new route may become available among other things. As far as map rewards and ship drops are concerned the higher the difficulty level the better.

    「甲作戦」や「丙作戦」などの【作戦難易度】によって作戦ギミックは異なるため、甲作戦をある程度進行させて、その後作戦難易度を再選択して下げた場合、新たな作戦航路などが出現する場合もあります。作戦成功褒賞や艦娘との邂逅などは、高難易度作戦の方がよいものとなっています。

    JP

    Every single new ship girl we're implementing today can be obtained regardless of difficulty level. Clearing the second map of the Main Operation will reward you with the new ship girl "Hiburi", name ship of the Hiburi-class escort ships. Admirals who clear the last map of the Main Operation will obtain the escort carrier "Gambier Bay"!

    全ての作戦難易度で、本日実装する【新艦娘】と邂逅すること可能です。前段作戦第二作戦海域の攻略突破で、新艦娘:日振型海防艦一番艦「日振」が艦隊に合流します。前段作戦最終作戦海域を見事突破された提督の元には、あの護衛空母、航空母艦「Gambier Bay」が合流します!

    JP

    [To admirals who participate in an event for the first time:] Welcome to the world of KanColle! In order to clear event maps it is important to expand your fleet in normal maps, level your ships, hoard resources and possess a large equipment arsenal. Even if you think that's too difficult there's no need to try to bruteforce maps or throw money at the game. Instead you should make good use of the normal maps.

    【始めて期間限定海域に参加する提督の皆さんへ】 「艦これ」の世界にようこそ!期間限定作戦海域の攻略には、通常海域での艦隊戦力の拡充、艦隊練度向上や資源の備蓄、装備の充実が大切です。これは難しい…と感じたら、反復出撃を強行したり、課金したりせず、通常海域もお役立てください。

    Twitter logo blue @KanColle_STAFF Patch notes

    JP

    For this event we're going to implement the new "Casual Mode". It is a new difficulty level for admirals who simply don't have the time to play or have joined only recently and just want to clear the event anyway.

    現在実装中の冬イベより、新たに【丁作戦】を実装します。この【丁作戦】はどうしてもプレイする時間が十分にない…艦隊運営を始めてまだ月日があまり経っていないけれど何とか期間限定海域を攻略したい…という提督のための新しい作戦難易度です。手応えのある作戦海域を望む提督方は…(続く)

    JP

    Admirals who want a challenge can still select Hard Mode as usual, admirals with a decent fleet can go for Medium Mode, and of course there's always Easy Mode. Please select the difficulty levels that suit your fleet or playstyle the most.

    (続き) 手応えのある作戦海域を望む提督方は、引き続き最難関の【甲作戦】、そして充実の艦隊を運用している提督方への【乙作戦】、そして通常通りの【丙作戦】選択もそれぞれの艦隊運用スタイルに合わせてご選択ください。

    JP

    "Musashi K2", the second refit of the second ship of the Yamato-class battleships, will be implemented together with this winter event. Due to the immense power of this remodelled Yamato-class battleship the refit will need several blueprints among other things. Three blueprints, three new artillery armament materials and one action report will be required. Oh my gooooooooooooooood! However...!

    今回の冬イベ実装/開幕と同時に実装される、大和型戦艦二番艦「武蔵」、その改二改装【武蔵改二】。同改装大和型戦艦は、その強力さ故に、その改装には多くの改装設計図などが必要です。改装設計図×3、新型砲熕兵装資材x3、戦闘詳報x1が必要です。なんだ、それは!……しかし!

    JP

    However, as long as you clear everything at least on Easy Mode, you'll be able to obtain all the required items, including the three blueprints, as rewards by clearing the Main Operation of the Winter 2018 Event "Showdown at Shō-Gō! Battle of Leyte Gulf (Part 2)"

    しかし、【丙作戦】以上の作戦難易度による攻略であれば。現在実装中の「艦これ」冬イベ2018:期間限定海域【捷号決戦!邀撃、レイテ沖海戦(後篇)】、その前段作戦において【改装設計図】x3を含むこれら全てを、作戦海域突破褒賞として獲得することが可能です。

    JP

    If you're already all set and ready to remodel "Musashi" into "Musashi K2" ASAP, that's fine. If you have a bunch of other ship girls just waiting for their K2s and want to remodel them first, that's also fine! In either case you'll be able to obtain three blueprints etc. in the Main Operation of this winter event.

    既に準備万端の「武蔵」がいるのであれば即「武蔵改二」改装するもよし、逆にたまりにたまった改二改装候補艦娘が沢山待っている場合は、彼女たちに投入していくこともよし、です!現在実装中の今季冬イベ「前段作戦」において、改装設計図x3他の入手が新たに可能となります。

    JP

    Oh... and we're terribly sorry. Due to the immense workload we unfortunately have to announce that there will be delays. We're really sorry. Please give us about three more hours. The event duration will be extended and the Extra Operation start date will be pushed back accordingly. Just a quick update and apology. We'll try to fix this as fast as possible

    そして…申し訳ありません。ごめんなさい。諸々詰め込みすぎた結果、実装作業に遅れが発生しています。大変申し訳ありません。あと三時間半ほどお時間を頂けないでしょうか。本作戦期間、及び後段作戦開始日も少し延ばさせて頂きます。まずはご報告と取り急ぎお詫びまで。回復実装を急ぎます。

    Again, we're sorry. Working on it.

    申し訳ありません。急ぎます。

    The KanColle Winter 2018 Limited-time Operation: Showdown at Operation Shō-Gō! Battle of Leyte Gulf (Part 2)'s Main Operation will consist of the following Operational Areas: E-1: Battle Stations! Perform Thorough Patrols of the Route Ahead! [Battle of the Palawan Passage Route Patrols] E-2: The Grand Sortie! Kurita Fleet's [Battle of the Sibuyan Sea]

    「艦これ」冬イベ2018 : 期間限定海域【捷号決戦!邀撃、レイテ沖海戦(後篇)】 前段作戦は下記の作戦海域より構成されます。 第一作戦海域 : 作戦開始 前路哨戒を厳とせよ!【パラワン水道前路哨戒戦】 第二作戦海域 : 威風堂々 出撃! 栗田艦隊【シブヤン海海戦】

    JP

    The KanColle Winter 2018 Limited-time Operation: Showdown at Operation Shō-Gō! Battle of Leyte Gulf (Part 2)'s Main Operation's Third and Forth Operational Areas will consist of the following: E-3: Ozawa Carrier Task Force, Sortie All Out! [1st Battle of Cape Engano]. E-4: Beyond the Sea of Samar - [Battle of Leyte Gulf]

    「艦これ」冬イベ2018 : 期間限定海域【捷号決戦!邀撃、レイテ沖海戦(後篇)】 前段作戦第三作戦海域以降は、下記より構成されます。 第三作戦海域 : 小沢機動部隊 全力出撃!【第一次エンガノ岬沖海戦】 最終作戦海域 : サマール沖 その先へ――【レイテ沖海戦】

    JP

    Starting with the second map of the Main Operation you can form a "Combined Fleet". The main fleet consists of fleet #1 and the escort fleet of fleet #2. Drag & drop the fleet #2 icon at the top of the composition screen onto the fleet #1 icon to form a Combined Fleet with a maximum of 12 ships, provided the requirements are met, and sortie it to event maps.

    前段作戦、第二作戦海域からは【連合艦隊】編成が可能です。主力艦隊を第一艦隊、随伴護衛艦隊を第二艦隊に編成。編成画面上部の第二艦隊の艦隊アイコンを第一艦隊の同アイコンにドラッグ&ドラップすることで、条件が合えば、最大12隻編成の連合艦隊編成での作戦海域出撃が可能となります。

    JP

    Furthermore, for the duration of the event it is once again possible to select the "Vanguard Formation", a battle formation that focuses on breaking through enemy lines, while using a regular fleet (or a strike force consisting of 7 ships that can be formed with fleet #3). During the event the "Vanguard Formation" can also be used in regular maps. It might help you clear regular maps if you happen to be stuck at one!

    また、作戦期間中、通常艦隊(または第三艦隊で編成可能な7隻編成の遊撃部隊)では、敵中突破に主眼をおいた戦闘隊形【警戒陣形】をとることも可能です。【警戒陣形】は作戦期間中は、通常海域でも運用可能です。何気に詰まっている通常海域の突破攻略にも、ぜひお役立てください!

    JP

    When the event starts several ship girls will wear headbands and be on stand-by duty. Furthermore, "Zuikaku", second ship of the Shōkaku-class aircraft carriers and who commanded Japan's last task force, will wear her "Battle of Cape Engaño" outfit instead of her regular K2 or K2A clothes and join the fight. Main Task Force... get ready to head out!

    本作戦が開始されると何隻かの艦娘は、決戦白鉢巻きを結び、臨戦態勢に入ります。また、日本最後の機動部隊を率いて出撃した翔鶴型航空母艦二番艦「瑞鶴」、その改二改装「瑞鶴改二」及び「瑞鶴改二甲」は【エンガノ岬決戦mode】に着替え、作戦に参加します。機動部隊本隊……抜錨準備ッ!

    JP

    The carriers Zuikaku, Zuihō, Chitose & Chiyoda of Ozawa's Northern Fleet, Atago, Takao, Chōkai & Maya of DesRon 4 that sortied as part of Force A & B of the first striking force under Kurita's Fleet and who were ambushed by enemy submarines at the Palawan Passage, as well as many other ships will receive "Decisive Battle" voice lines!

    「小沢艦隊」機動部隊本隊の各空母群「瑞鶴」「瑞鳳」「千歳」「千代田」はもちろん、1YB第一部隊及び同第二部隊「栗田艦隊」の一翼として出撃、パラワン水道で敵潜の待伏せを受けた四戦隊「愛宕」「高雄」「鳥海」「摩耶」の各艦など、多くの艦娘に艦娘【決戦】ボイスが新規に実装されます!

    JP

    メンテナンス状況:稼働全サーバ群は最終シークエンスに入りました。 「艦これ」稼働全サーバ群はメンテナンス&アップデート作業を実施中です。現在、作業は最終シークエンスに入りました!全サーバ群の開放予定は、現在【03:30】を予定しています。午前三時を回りまして…申し訳ありません。

    The Winter 2018 KanColl Event "Showdown at Shō-Gō! Battle of Leyte Gulf (Part 2)" is currently being implemented. In the fourth map of the Main Operation, E-4 "Beyond the Sea of Samar... [Battle of Leyte Gulf]", during the night battle phase at the final destination, the Allied Fleet might arrive and provide close quarters support!

    現在実装中の「艦これ」冬イベ2018 : 期間限定海域【捷号決戦!邀撃、レイテ沖海戦(後篇)】。その前段作戦の最終海域たる、第四作戦海域 : サマール沖 その先へ――【レイテ沖海戦】最終目的地の夜戦フェイズでは、友軍艦隊(NPC)が突入、同近接戦闘援護を受けられる場合があります!

    JP

    ※ The supporting Allied Fleet will have several different lineups. ※ The supporting Allied Fleet will be an NPC fleet for this event. ※ The supporting fleet's lineup will depend on the fleet setup of the 1YB (First Striking Force) that enters Leyte Gulf under the admiral's command. Now go to Leyte Gulf and carve your victory upon its horizon of dawn!

    *友軍艦隊の援護突入する艦隊の陣容は複数存在します。

    • 友軍艦隊の援護突入は本作戦ではNPC艦隊です。
    • 同突入艦隊の陣容は、レイテ湾に突入する提督指揮下の1YB(第一機動部隊)の艦隊構成によっても変化します。
    レイテ湾…その暁の水平線に、勝利を刻め――!
    JP

    大事なとこで噛んでしまったので、修正してお詫びです! 第一遊撃部隊です、第一遊撃部隊! 1YB! …ごめんなさい。

    JP

    メンテナンス状況:【AM 03:30】に作業完了、サーバ開放予定です。 「艦これ」稼働全サーバ群はメンテナンス&アップデート作業を実施中です。この後【AM 03:30】に稼働全サーバ群を開放、捷一号作戦、いよいよ決戦開始です!提督の皆さん、大変お待たせ致しました。作戦発動まで、あと少し!

      Depends on your schedule before the Event (including 1~3 days of not entering deep into the Event so that you don't "Frontline (Trial & Error Runs)", but the New Quests aren't difficult, so you can do it just fine. Also the EOs you have mentioned aren't difficult either so shouldn't take much resources either (that is as long as you know what you are doing)

    • Thanks. Right now I plan to save up some medals for Kai Ni of one or more ships, should they be neccessary for the event. I didn't upgrade Shoukaku because I was like maybe this won't that much of a drawback. And there are some ships in line for their Kai Ni

      Let's see what Event brings us....

      She has her own identity, and she's perfect like she is. If you don't like her or her design, you can choose her sister instead, or shibafu's daughters (who are very nice girl too). 

      I hope she would remain the same, getting a remodel like Saratoga or the Kongo sisters : not much change, improved stat and no science-fi turret or personality twist. (Nagato is a mess on her kai-ni, both her new clothes, ship parts and extra line doesn't fit).

      I'd say no. I was three weeks into playing when the Fall 2017 event started and that was nowhere good enough to finish event E-2 on EASY let alone medium (I was lacking in Subs though which may have helped_)

        Loading editor
    • I started right after Summer 2017 and I cleared Fall 2017 on Easy, but barely. That was only a "Medium" scale event and I was really low on resources and buckets. At this point I'd recommend new players farm the first few maps for the good drops and wait for the next event to try to clear. You'll get a lot of nice drops from event maps and that is going to help you more than getting the event clear reward.

    • So, what'll happen after this "final battle event", "likely the biggest naval operation in the world"?

      In Phase II we are to expect Operations like "South CHIna Sea Raid"? And after that? What you guys think. Is Tanaka to recycle old events? Or to come up with new events? I think I'm overhyped about Phase II. But definitely looking forward to it.

      No one knows at this point what Phase II will contain.

      Only things we do know is that it will make KanColle be transferred into the HTML5 Format, and we will have a new system called the "Friend-Fleet" System. 

      And well, it's not really related but we will also have multiple Kagerou-class DD Kai Nis by then.

      But for us to know more about Phase 2, we will most likely need to wait Post-Winter Event or when official interviews come out later on.

    • ...that's a good question!

      There are certainly other battles they could do that haven't been touched on yet, some of which take place after Leyte...but I don't think any of them would be as big of a deal except, maybe, Operation Ten-Go.

      Given the nature of Summer 2017, I know that the devs aren't above making up new stuff, so that always remains a possibility as well.

      As far as recycling old events, that's a possibility too, as revisiting some of these with the present ships and mechancis would be quite interesting indeed.

      ...unfortunately, we just don't have much of anything to go on right now, so making baseless speculation is, in my opinion, not a good idea, as it sets people up to be disappointed as it starts raising expectations.

      Damn... they really are keeping information locked down tight aren't they?

      I mean, between leaks, hints, reveals and the like we tend to have some idea of what to expect (at least that's what I got from both Summer and Fall)... but this time around? Nothing.



      ...and I'm really digging that Eve of Battle CG for Zuikaku. I honestly wish some of this new/specialized artwork would make its way into the game on a more perminant basis.

    • We already have some ideas about the new ships though. An american CVE (likely), 2 Kaiboukans of the new class, and a British destroyer. We even know how will they look like, more or less. And a couple of ships are always kept secret before the event maintenance. 

      Not to mention that the theme of the event (and historical fleets we can prepare in ADVANCE) was known even before fall event ended. 

      I wouldnt call it "little information", to be honest. Not like we knew any more before, let's say, this spring event. Or even fall event.

      Indeed.

      ...then there's the fact that this is also the last event of 'Phase 1' and this is the single largest naval battle in WWII (if not ever).

      If they don't bring out some awesome (both in rewards and gameplay), I think folks are going to be very disappointed across the board.

      Note - I felt that fall 2017 was pretty cool overall. I liked the use of multiple start-points and requirement of different fleet compositions (normal, combined and striking) to unlock the route to the boss on E4. Yes, some parts were salt-inducing, but it was not an event that I could just 'brute force' my way through like I did in Summer 2017.

      ​​​​​​Better than clearing 7 maps for a British DD, I would say.

      What we know about the event:

      A US CVE (probably Gambier Bay)

      A British DD (narrowed down to about 5 classes)

      Possibly some PFs, possibly Ukuru-class

      We also know that there are few Japanese large(r) ships left to be introduced, namely Shinano.

      And that's all, they really are telling us nothing.

      What about Ibuki? Her hull was completed and ther was plans of converting her into a cv, so we could have another suzuya/kumano ca/cv conversion. Since Graf and aquila are both incomplete ships that are in the game i dont see why Ibuki cant be.

      I'm fairly certain that Suzuya and Kumano's CVL remodels are meant to represent Ibuki. That's what I've been led to believe when that update was released. No idea if that is actually true though, I just hope they don't do something similar with the Yamato class.

    • I was wondering a bit and...what we know so far about drops is in my opinion a little....anticlimactic?

      2 (possibly) japanese DE, one (almost certainly) British DD, and presuambly one american CV(E)....We will get Musashi Kai Ni with 5 slots which is pretty very much awsome on it's own.

      Yet here I am thinking that Devs may likely give us some major surprise...kinda like CV(E) being reward for MO and DD along with DEs being extra drops during Event and then some major bomb gets dropped during Grande Finale (no, not on Hiroshima)

      "Let's finish with a blast" is what they say. Unless blast means level of insanity we have never seen before.

    • Upcoming British Destroyer hinted to be a "Lucky Destroyer"

      Source: https://twitter.com/KanColle_STAFF/status/962867463162535936

      Currently KanColle Development Team is at their best for the preparation of the upcoming release of this season's Winter Event. For this Event which will be the Final Event of Phase 1, we are preparing for the release of various kinds of New Ship Girls. This includes the New-class of Coastal Defense Ships who were teased in the Comptiq's Commercial, and a certain "Lucky" Destroyer from the Country of Black Tea, who was loved by its Blessing and Fierce Battles!

    • Could it be HMS Jervis?

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Jervis

      Lucky Jervis

      Jervis had a reputation as a lucky ship (again in contrast to her sister, Kelly, who seemed to have more than her share of bad luck). Despite a long and active career, in 5½ years of war and 13 major actions, not one of her crew was lost to enemy action, possibly a unique record. An example of her luck might be seen in her action at Anzio in January 1944. Supporting the landing with gunfire, Jervis and her sister ship, Janus, were attacked by enemy aircraft using Henschel Hs 293 glider bombs. Both were hit; Janus’ forward magazine exploded, sinking her with the loss of nearly 160 of her crew; Jervis’ bow was blown off, leaving her to be towed stern-first to safety. Astonishingly, not one of her crew was harmed in this incident, and she was able to rescue over 80 of Janus’ crew.

      While many RN destroyers could be considered lucky, not that many are described as "lucky" (in english) on Japanese wikipedia, so I'd say fair chance. If it's really her, then it's quite good choice: great luck, strong torpedoes (2x quint, even if British torpedoes were inferior to Japanese oxy, is still quite good), decent ASW. Personally I was hoping for Electra, but I'm not disappointed.

      Fun Fact Time (not so fun this time):

      On 1st December 1941 commanding officer of HMS Jaguar Lt.Cdr. John Franklin William Hine was killed along two other crewmen by shell accidentally fired from... yeah, HMS Jervis. That's some luck alright! I'm not sure how it's even possible without serious breach of safety protocols and we are unlikely to know what exactly happened (official report says something about cleaning hot barrel) given RN tendency to hush up any fuckups, but if fandom gets to this story she's gonna get portrayal either as a trigger-happy airhead or straight-up yandere. I mean, she has shot dead her sister's commander!

    • British Destroyer naming convention is to use the letter of the class in the destroyers name e.g. Jervis and Jaguar were "J-class" destroyers.

      Going from this,

      Lucky starts with an L,

      Britain has used L-Class destroyers in WW1,

      The L-class was the start of the naming convention.

      Inb4 the new British DD is Laforey and therefore older than Warspite.

    • At the absolute worst, I expect the following:

      1x Blueprint - No other ship that requires multiple blueprints require more than 1 at a time. It makes little sense to change that paradigm now.

      1-2x Action Report - Action Reports are a thing that is necessary to improve some ships and gear now. I don't see needing more than 1 because there aren't a lot of ARs available yet...but at the same time, it's not outside of the realm of possibility.

      ???x DevMats - DevMats were required to upgrade Tatsuta to K2, given that there are a fair number of repeatable quests that can drop a lot of these in short order, I can see this being a thing

      ???x Torches - Torches were required to upgrade Tatsuta to K2 and I have no reason to think that this would be different.

      Metric-Fuckton Ammo & Steel - Because of course it will. All ships need lots of ammo and steel for their upgrades and this is Musashi we're talking about here.

      1x Mystery Material 9000 - Some sort of mysterious device that will appear as an event reward but will, at a later time, be available from a quest. This sort of precident was established with Shoukaku and Zuikaku. While all of this took place well before I started playing, it was a thing that happened and given the very nature of Musashi, I have no reason to believe that it would not happen again...especially given that Yamato will get her K2 at some point in time.

      I am not freaking out too much about Musashi right now because I'm pretty sure this is what they are planning. Then Yamato can get the same treatment when she has her "Grand Hot Battle." It basically makes Musashi Kai Ni the event reward. Since I heard about the 5 slots I've been pretty sure this is what they are going to do.

      One of the reasons why I'm not worried about it is because if it is a thing that happens, it would go down very much the same way it did for the Flight Decks.

      As far as actual power-level, I don't see Musashi getting much of a boost because 5 Slots is enough of a game-changer as it is.

      And I kinda hope to see an Operation Ten-Go for Yamato's "Grand Hot Battle" as maybe an opening event for Phase 2 in Spring.

      Not to rain too much on your enthusiasm there, but the number of reward-ships isn't 'going all out'. I mean, consider Summer 2017; it was a large scale event that had 7 new ships as rewards with the following distribution:
      1x DE - E5 Drop (Matsuwa)
      3x DD - E1/2 Drop (Sagiri), E3/4 Drop (Amagiri), E2 Clear Reward (Hatakaze)
      1x SS - E5 Drop (Luigi Torelli)
      1x FBB - E4 Clear Reward (Richelieu)
      1x CV - E7 Clear Reward (Ark Royal)

      I personally expect a similar amount of ships and varaiety. I mean, we know we're getting 2x DEs (don't know the name or Class yet) and 1x DD (British, unconfirmed but speculation says Jervis).

      Beyond this, it is suspected that there is a CVE coming based on the December Ranking rewards; this is pure speculation (so keep your hopes in check).

      Anything beyond this is pure speculation...

      Was mostly pointing out that "6+" is about par for the course in regards to Large Scale events. I mean there have been 5 large-scale events to date that I am aware of, and all but one had at least 6 ships as a reward (only Spring 2016 had 5...but one of those was Iowa...). All of the others had 6 or 7 ships as total rewards... with 4 being DD/DE.  Make no mistake, I'm not complaining about any of this. I would like to see more CLs and CAs myself, though I won't be sad about more Captials either (BB/CV). Heck, even 'Support' ships like Fleet Oilers and such would be nice if they had some sort of expanded use in normal operations.

      I agree with this as well.

      The thing I really enjoywed about Summer was venturing out and away from the Pacific Ocean. I also really like the dynamic/variety compisition and routing that we had in Fall.

I'll agree with the admirals requesting a foreign CL. The De Ruyter would be an awesome choice. So would any of the Cleveland or Brooklyn classes.

      The Devs said "More than 6" but never gave the exact number of how many in real. So it could be 7 or 8 or even 9 who knows.

      I think 7 is the safest choice, with 5 small ships (DD/DE) at least, if they are maso enough.

      8, 9 or anything beyond would be a first in Kancolle Events right ? And since it's the end of Phase 1 AND Motherfu**ing Leyte part 2 AND Large-Scale (6 ,7, more maps ?!). 8 is plausible too. But when they said something, it's usually the lowest possibility each time (Remember the "Bigger than a DD" thing which was a SS in the end)

      I'll stay with 7, and pray for more

      What kind of total redesign tough? You mean like what happens with Yuu/RO when she's technically the same person but her behaviour and looks change completely?

      I guess I could have asked in a nicer way when fishing for opinions on her, please forgive me Musashi fans. Still I do think she looks terrible and that it's something that is deluting the overall style that KanColle is going for, seems like someone was drunk when they approved it. Now that I own her tho... I kinda like her a little bit, just put on some clothes damint, is that too much to ask for.

    • She's supposed to look like a delinquent. Google "anime delinquent girl" and you'll see a lot of the chest wrap stuff. I have no idea why this is a thing, but it is. I think being a delinquent is a reference to how she went down, basically absorbing the majority of the US air attacks and letting the rest of the fleet move out of range. It fits with the anime trope of the tough delinquent who redeems themselves by fighting an unwinnable fight on behalf of others. She is a gyaru because it fits with the delinquent, gyaru's are often depicted as troublemakers, and because her crew rubbed soot on her deck before her final sortie. Also, her captain insisted that she be repainted a darker color. The only thing I don't know about is the glasses, but it's probably a reference to her namesake, Miyamoto Musashi, who was known as a master strategist and philosopher in addition to being Japan's most famous swordsman.

      TL;DR: She's a mashup of fetishes because she's a complicated lady.

      In my pushback, it's not even about being a Musashi fan. It's about your argument that her design delutes/undermines the style that is KanColle. 

      The fact of the matter is that the most distinctive ships have a very distinctive design that is indicative of their namesake. In the case of Musashi, her overall design is a giant shout-out to Miyamoto Musashi who, like many contemporary warriors of that timeframe, wore chest-wraps. This is in addition to the historical aspects of the battleship that WellSpokenMan pointed out; painted a dark color and soot on the deck on her final sortie. As far as her being portrayed as a delenquent is because unlike her sister, Musashi saw a lot more action.

      The fact of the matter is that her design is not 'a trainwreck of fetishes' or something that got past because the approving authority was drunk.

      I understand you don't care for the overall design, I'm not a fan of the chest-wrap either, especially when considering her pose (I like busty ladies, but the whole thing looks off to me because of her pose and such)...but I understand the reasoning behind all of it..

      In regards to general discussion; I also think Musashi is both visually and vocally one of the most elaborate designs in this game. The skimpy outfit is an obvious drawback for many people but honestly Yamato is no better in that field save for actually wearing shirt (Musashi also has one, she just doesn't feel like putting it on cuz enemy shells ricochetting and breaking on her hull all warming her up)

      Something Ive been thinking about the devs could add is player owned installation types, they could introduce them in an event where abyssal fleets attack your naval district. You would then have to set a new defence fleet to fend them off, and after getting an installation type as map reward she can go into the defence fleet only.
