        Loading editor
    • Latest info from the Devs stated that this upgrade is going to be 'Night-Battle' focused with a mention of being in the lead of a Torpedo or Cruiser squadron.

      ...what this means in specific is is completely unknown right now, but we should be finding out in about 2 weeks (which is when the next maintenance is taking place and where the upgrade will be deployed).

      Frankly, I think this is a good thing. The Kongou-class generally falls by the wayside as far as FBBs go, especially once folks start getting event-only FBBs...so giving them some way to stand out or contribute is, I think, a good thing.

      My understanding is that the devs *don't* do April Fools... that is, they don't give out false news or joke-announcements.

      ...instead they make outrageous statements that they are 100% serious about. For example, in a prior year, they announced that there would be a 1:1 scale Zuiun, later that year there wsas Zuiunfest with a 1:1 scale model.

      This being said, the information I just posted was from one of their 2 April tweets.

      Anything beyond that (such as her usefulness in any combined fleet), is unknown... but I suspect that with this there will be more incenitve to put a FBB in the Escort Fleet of any combined fleet.

    • Well I never followed the official twitter (I have no social media accounts whatsoever) so I don't know much about their announcements...and I can't read moonrunes

      And that TCF bit I said is just due to "torpedo squadron"

        Loading editor
    • I don't follow their official twitter either in that I have actually hit the 'follow' button.

      As far as actually reading the tweets, I rely on both Google Translate and the default translator offered via Twitter/Microsoft because I'm in the same boat. I do get a pretty good idea of what's going on though...however I do tend to wait a bit for the people who CAN read Japanese to post their translations/thoughts in Reddit or one of the Discord servers I'm part of.

      As far as this upgrade making so that Kongou (and any other FBB getting the upgrade) is able to be used in a TCF goes... well, I don't see that happening unless they make changes to the rules on what can be added to a TCF (note: they *have* done this before; for awhile, no CVLs were allowed at all. Then they changed it so that they could if they had an actual ASW stat like Shinyou, Taiyou, Zuihou and Gamby). 

      While FBBs are useable in STF and CTFs in the Escort Fleet, people don't tend to put them there because there are no benefits to do so. The Escort Fleet only really gets to shine at night and Heavy Cruisers are better at night than FBBs. The only exception to this that I am aware of is during the last event where a couple of FBBs had damage bonuses against one or two of the bosses, and those bonuses made putting those ships in the Escort Fleet viable.

      This all being said, it really does depend on what the Devs mean and what the end result will be...

    • Kongou needs to beat Bismarck drei before she can claim a spot in escort fleet of Kidou or Suijou Butai. Although looking at it, it's not that hard to beat.

      Birb.

      How can you say escort fleet only shines at night...

      Kidou Butai and Yusou Butai relies on having strong enough escort fleet that is gimped with bullshit accuracy penalty and often pitted against high-evasion, high-armored ships, forcing you to send support expedition (not so much for Yusou Butai as it's mandatory) and depleting even more of your resources.

      When you put fast battleships (read: Bismarck drei) in escort fleet, that's because you want to have stronger daytime punching power to have bigger chance of sinking enemy ships in exchange for weaker nighttime attack (that's actually still as strong as many Kai IJN CAs).

      Bismarck drei is good to have especially on Kidou Butai escort fleet because of this, plus her innate torpedo stat, allowing her to do chip damage during closing torpedo phase against enemy bosses.

      Battleships can also get bigger accuracy (whether bonus or innate) from guns, countering combined fleet's accuracy penalty better.

      And against installation weak to Type 3 Shell, BB > CA due to BB can spare being moderately damaged while CA's damage plummets down.

      What's stopping you, then, from using Bismarck drei? THE MAP ITSELF. Especially the part where the map punishes you for using too many capital ships.

      Is my spoiler tab working, it's been a totally long time since I do this...

      Probably not, because the main reason why Bismarck Drei is really viable at night is due to how the Torp stat factors into damage calculation...and she is the only FBB that *has* a Torp stat.

      You kind of just pointed out *exactly* why I say that Escort Fleets shine at night. Day battles are primarily for clearing out the 'trash' (read: anything except the Flagship). If the hard-hitting Main Fleet from a CTF or STF are able to inflict damage to the flagship, so much the better.

      However because night battle mechanics have different damage caps and calculate damage differently, night battles tend to be a case of rocket-tag. BBs don't do well at night even in regular battles, while for DDs, CLs, CLTs and CAs (depending on the ship and build), that's their bread and butter...so these are the ships you are relying on to sink the boss in a Combined Fleet.

      People *DON'T* put FBBs in the Escort Fleet for precisely this reason. While there is merit to putting an FBB in the Escort Fleet, it is mostly to do as you say; have a harder-hitting round of shelling during the day and 'pretty good' damage at night with the FBB positioned to take care of any leftover escorts.


      Tennousu wrote:

      All ships suffer significant reductions in damage output due to be moderately damaged, it's just that BBs have a higher starting damage stat, meaning that after the penalties, they still have some hefty hitting power.

      ...however, CAs *STILL* perform better than BBs at night across the board, which means that, at night, you are still wanting to have a CA in the escort fleet istead of a BB as a general thing.

      Nevermind the fact that given how combat mechanics work, it's actually beneficial when planning for/anticipating the night battle phase to put your night battle workhorses in the Escort Fleet because the Main Fleet will be the one taking most of the punishment, leaving the Escort Fleet to wreak havoc at night (though this depends on the type of fleet being sortied).

      What is stopping me, personally, from using Bismarck Drei is the fact that I don't have Bismarck Drei.

      With regard to using certain ships, while map composition requirements are always a factor in determining how many capital ships are brought, this is usually a matter of the speed of ships (favoring Fast compisitions) and ship-locking more than anything else. That said, if there is a reason to bring an FBB in the Escort Fleet, and there is a capital ship cap for routing purposes, one can always put CAs in the Main Fleet.  Heck, just in the *last* event, there were reasons to put FBBs in the Escort Fleet because FBBs got damage bonuses against the boss, which was *very* useful due to that boss' heavy armor. 

        Loading editor
    • Unless they plan to market her as a poor man's Bismarck Drei specifically for use in the escort fleet when combined. On the other hand they might give her her own set of stats to make her viable in some other way like leading a Torpedo Squadron instead of the traditional CL, or even her own gimmick like opening torpedo to counter Re-chan's. I personally think an FBB with opening torp would be pretty cool, but this would undoubtedly be locked behind a Blueprint or BP + AR or whatever.

      At the end of the day, as pointed out above, she would need to compete with CA level yasen power to earn a spot in the escort fleet, in which case this remodel might turn her into a really powerful ship. I'm still a Haruna man though, but I really like Kongou so I'll definitely remodel her when the time comes.

        Loading editor
    • They honestly wouldn't have to do much to Kongou (or her sisters) to get her to be on par with Bismarck Drei; a small stat-boost to her FP, a Torp stat and the ability to equip torpedoes would be sufficient on its own...and looking at the numbers, I don't think even Bismarck Drei competes with CAs when it comes to night battles. I mean, if you're going just by baseline stats, your average CA is objectivly better...

      Given the nauture of Side-Grades (as opposed to an upgrade), I don't see there being a drastic change in things (note the subtle differences between Zuihou K2 and K2B)...but I almost expect there to be a special mechanic in play if she's leading a Torp Squadron.

      All of this being said, I don't expect much more than a side-grade that makes her kind of like Bisko and maybe a specialized mechanic/attack (like Nelson Touch) that procs only under certain fleet comps.

        Loading editor
    • After looking at Bismarck Drei's stats again I see what you mean. I'm glad I've held off spending two Blueprints on her. It's not that I don't think Big Akatsuki isn't cute, but at this stage I'd rather spend those BPs on Musashi K2 because I like her more, plus she's a total powerhouse.

      Given the traditional routing requirements for events, I think Kongou's remodel is going to make for interesting possibilities. They almost always penalise slow fleets and Battleships are usually only usable in the later event maps, so if they're making her lead a Torpedo Squadron they might have some new devilry in mind. But I doubt anything is ever going to come close to what they did with that requirement of getting AS or AS+ (whatever it was) on that node after the one with the BB Himes on E2 in the last event. God that was awful.

        Loading editor
    • I'm quite curious about Kongou's planned remodel. It will certanly make my first Ringed ship even more useful in events. Hopefully she gets a nice new CG as well like Ise and Hyuuga did.
