    We've reached the halfway point of our work schedule. This large-scale event, which is taking place from autumn through winter, is going to feature a total of 7 new ship girls. In today's update, in which we're adding the Main Operation, we're going to implement 4 of them, so look forward to them!

    One new cruiser, who as part of the ABDA fleet faced off against the Japanese fleet that was carrying out its "Southern Operation", is drawn by Kusada Souta. Another one is drawn by a young and entirely new artist, so we hope you'll take good care of her new ship girls!

    Maintenance status: KanColle server maintenance & update in progress.
    We're terribly sorry, admirals, but we've encountered several issues and are currently unable to move on to the second half of our work schedule. So here's a quick update and apology. We'll keep you posted.

    メンテナンス状況:「艦これ」稼働各サーバ群は、重メンテナンス&アップデートを実施中です。
    提督の皆さん、申し訳ありません、実装進捗にいくつかの問題が発生しており、現在まだ後半のシークエンスに移行が完了できていません。取り急ぎ、状況のご報告とお詫びまで。またご連絡致します。

    JP

    Maintenance status: KanColle server maintenance & update in progress.
    We're currently at the middle stage of our work schedule, but have encountered severe problems that are stopping our progress, so now we're in recovery mode. We're terribly sorry. Since we had to roll back quite a lot... (TBC)

    メンテナンス状況:「艦これ」稼働各サーバ群は、重メンテナンス&アップデートを実施中です。
    現在、中盤のシークエンスの途中ですが、重メンテの進捗に大きな問題と障害が発生しており、復旧と回復作業を急いでいます。申し訳ありません。かなり大きく巻き戻しが発生しており…(続きます)

    JP

    It appears that returning from recovery mode back to our regular work schedule, then finishing the second half in order to move on to the final phase is going to require a lot of time. If you're among the admirals who're waiting for the maintenance to ends, we suggest that you go ahead and get some sleep. We'll try to get the servers ready for reopening by tomorrow morning. We're terribly sorry for the wait.

    復旧から、実装作業本線に戻り、後半から最終シークエンスへは多くの時間を要する模様です。メンテ完了をお待ち頂いている提督の皆さん、先にお休みになって頂くことは可能でしょうか。朝までになんとかサーバ開放までもっていく形で作業を続けます。お待たせして、大変申し訳ありません。

    JP

    If we can see an ETA for returning to our regular work schedule and moving to the second half of it, we'll post it here. Now back to work. We're terribly sorry for the wait, admirals.

    通常作業本線に復旧し、後半のシークエンスに移行できる時間が見えましたら、まだご連絡致します。作業を続けます。提督の皆さん、お待たせして申し訳ありません。

    JP

    0340. Greetings, admirals. We're currently working overtime on the KanColle servers' heavy maintenance. We're terribly sorry for the wait. The large problems that have occured are in the progress of being fixed. We'll get back on track soon and resume our work on the update.

    マルサンヨンマル。提督の皆さん、お疲れさまです。

    JP

    For admirals who're going to tackle a time-limited event for the first time:
    Admirals you have just assumed command of their fleets can participate on either "Easy Mode" or "Casual Mode". Furthermore, experienced admirals, can also select" "Normal Mode" or "Hard Mode".

    【初めて期間限定海域:作戦海域に挑む提督の皆さんへ】
    艦隊運用を始めて間もない提督方は、【丙】または【丁】作戦に参加することが可能です。また、歴戦の提督方は【乙】、そして最難易度作戦【甲】作戦に参加することが可能です。

    JP

    The items you can obtain by clearing an event map differ depending on the difficulty level you selected, but any new ship girls can be obtained regardless of the selected difficulty level.

    選んだ作戦難易度によって作戦海域攻略後に獲得できるアイテム群は異なりますが、作戦海域突破によって艦隊に合流する【新艦娘】は、作戦難易度に関らず獲得することが可能です。

    JP

    Furthermore, your chances to obtain rare ship girl drops increase the higher the selected difficulty level. However, event maps still offer a large variety of ship drops even to beginners. Simply select a difficulty level that corresponds to your fleet's power.

    また、作戦中に作戦海域で邂逅できる【艦娘】たちは、作戦難易度が難しいほど、レアな【艦娘】との邂逅の機会は広がります。しかし、期間限定海域は、艦隊運用を始めたばかりの提督方には、多彩な艦娘と邂逅するチャンスも多くあります。ぜひ、それぞれの艦隊戦力にあわせて、可能な…

    JP

    Just try to get as far as you can with your fleets. Furthermore, repair ship "Akashi", an important asset for any fleet out there, can drop even in E-1. If you don't have her yet, seize the opportunity.

    それぞれの艦隊戦力にあわせて、可能なところまで挑戦してみてください。また、艦隊戦力の拡充に重要な艦娘、工作艦「明石」は、第一作戦海域でも邂逅することが可能です。まだ、「明石」が艦隊にいない提督方は、この機会をぜひ活用ください。

    JP

    In this update we also buffed the "Emergency Anchorage Repair" feature of the repair ship "Akashi Kai" and seaplane tender "Akitsushima Kai". The Main Operation will feature maps where you can perform repairs. If you can these repair ships there, you might as well try it out.

    また、本アップデートによって、工作艦「明石改」または水上機母艦「秋津洲改」による【緊急泊地修理】の演出も少しだけ強化しました。本前段作戦でも同修理が可能な海域もあります。こちらも同工作艦の運用が可能になりましたら、機会があればどうぞよろしくお願い致します!

    JP

    Furthermore, levelling and expanding your fleet in normal maps is very important for first-timers. Especially when it comes to developing equipment such as Type 3 Shells in order to deal with soft-skinned installationes like the Supply Depot Princess, etc. Even if you don't get rare equipment, it's all about how you use it.

    また、艦隊運用を始めた頃は、通常海域での練度向上や戦力の拡充は大切です。特に、装備の開発、例えば集積地などの地上ソフトスキン型の目標に対しても有効な三式弾などの開発は進めておいたほうがいいでしょう。レアな装備でなくても正しく使いこなすことで、活路を見出すことも可能です!

    JP

    We're now going to post the patch notes of the still ongoing super-heavy maintenance.
    01▼ Start of the time-limited event "Advance! The 2nd Southern Operation"!
    The Main Operation of the time-limited event "Advance! The 2nd Southern Operation", which takes place from autumn through winter, begins now!
    ※ This is a large-scale event.

    現在実施中の重メンテナンスに伴うアップデート情報をお知らせしてまいります。
    01▼期間限定海域【進撃!第二次作戦「南方作戦」】作戦開始!
    秋から冬にかけて展開する、次期期間限定海域【進撃!第二次作戦「南方作戦」】、その前段作戦を開始します!
    ※同作戦は大規模作戦です。

    JP

    02▼ First map
    E-1: "Witness DesDiv 8! The Battle of Badung Strait"
    (Makassar Sea / Bali Island Sea)
    This is a landing operation that's covered by an elite destroyer division. We're expecting engagements with enemy fleets that are trying to interfere with it. Nothing an elite destroyer division under the command of an experienced admiral can't handle. In the unlikely case that you're lacking firepower, you can also have a light or heavy cruiser provide cover.

    02▼第一作戦海域
    E1:【八駆見参!バリ島沖海戦】
    (マカッサル沖/バリ島沖)
    精鋭駆逐隊による上陸作戦援護です。これを妨害する敵艦隊との交戦も予想されます。歴戦提督旗下の精鋭駆逐隊なら、文字通り鎧袖一触です。万一、火力が足りない場合は、重巡や軽巡に援護をお願いするのも手です。

    JP

    03▼ Implementation of new combat BGM
    In this update we're adding the new battle BGM "DesDiv 8's Interception". Just imagine the four ships of DesDiv 8 skillfully traversing the sea and slaughtering their enemies while outnumbered. It's a new track by Ms. Ōkoshi.

    03▼新戦闘海域BGMの投入
    本アップデートにより、作戦海域の新戦闘BGM、「八駆の迎撃」を投入します。鮮やかに海を駆け、自らの数倍の敵を屠る、第八駆逐隊四隻の雄姿、同曲間の脳裏に浮かべば本望です。大越さんの手による新作楽曲です。

    JP

    04▼ Second map
    E-2: "Assault! The Second Battle of the Java Sea"
    (Java Sea / Darwin Sea)
    Cooperate with our land-based air force that has been deployed to the Southern Operation area and work towards whittling down the enemy fleet forces in the Java sea. Depending on the situation that you should also consider sending out a carrier task force for an assault on Port Darwin, which is being occupied by the Abyssal forces!

    04▼第二作戦海域
    E2:【強襲!第二次ジャワ沖海戦】
    (ジャワ沖/ダーウィン沖)
    南方作戦エリアに展開した我が基地航空隊と連携して、ジャワ沖の敵艦隊戦力の漸減を図ります。また、状況により空母機動部隊による深海勢力下のダーウィン港湾基地の強襲も、どうぞご検討ください!

    JP

    05▼ Third map
    E-3: "Clash! The Battle of Surabaya"
    (Java Sea / Surabaya Sea)
    We cannot afford to lose the decisive battle against the combined Abyssal forces that are trying to thwart our Southern Operation. Form a large fleet similar to a Combined Fleet, but which consists of heavy cruiser squadrons and/or torpedo squadrons instead of large ships like battleships or aircraft carriers, then engage the enemy at the Surabaya sea!

    05▼第三作戦海域
    E3:【激突!スラバヤ沖海戦】
    (ジャワ海/スラバヤ沖)
    我が南方作戦を阻む、深海合同艦隊主力との艦隊決戦、負ける訳にはいきません。戦艦・正規空母などの大型艦ではなく、重巡戦隊、水雷戦隊などで「連合艦隊」規模の大規模な艦隊を編成してスラバヤ沖で敵と対峙します!

    JP

    06▼ Obtaining the new ship girls "De Ruyter"
    In the third map "Clash! The Battle of Surabaya" you'll be able to obtain a large variety of ship girls just like in other maps, but at the spot where the decisive battle in E-3 takes place you'll also be able to obtain the new ship girl "De Ruyter". She fought alongside others as part of the ABDA fleet... please take good care of them!

    06▼新艦娘「De Ruyter」との邂逅
    本作戦:第三作戦海域【激突!スラバヤ沖海戦】では、他作戦海域同様に多彩な艦娘と邂逅可能ですが、本作戦決戦地点では、本日実装の新艦娘「De Ruyter」との邂逅も可能です。ABDA艦隊の一翼として戦った艦艇達…彼女達も、どうぞよろしくお願い致します!

    JP

    07▼ New ship girl "Perth" as reward for clearing E-3
    The new ship girl "Perth" will join the fleet of any admiral who successfully clears E-3 "Clash! The Battle of Surabaya"! "Perth" was born in the U.K. and raised in Australia, so it's only fitting that she's voiced by Uchida Shū, who was also raised in Australia! Look forward to her!

    07▼第三作戦海域突破:新艦娘「Perth」の艦隊合流
    第三作戦海域【激突!スラバヤ沖海戦】を見事攻略突破された提督の艦隊には、本日実装の新艦娘「Perth」が合流します!英国生まれ、オーストラリア育ちの「Perth」のCVは、同じくオーストラリア育ちの内田秀さんが担当します!お楽しみに!

    JP

    08▼ Fourth map (Final map of the Main Operation)
    E-4: "Battle off Batavia"
    (Naval battle off Batavia)
    It's finally time for the final battle of the southern Dutch East Indies campaign. It'll take place... off the coast of Batavia! In this area you can also obtain the Northampton-class heavy cruiser "Houston", who fought as part of the ABDA fleet! It's also the first time ever her voice actress is playing a role in KanColle!

    08▼第四作戦海域(前段作戦 最終海域)
    E4:【バタビア沖海戦】
    (バタビア沖海戦)
    いよいよ南方蘭印作戦の最終決戦、海域は…バタビア沖!同作戦海域では、ABDA艦隊の重巡戦力として戦ったNorthampton級「Houston」、彼女との邂逅も可能です!
    同CVは、「艦これ」初参加の素敵な声優さんです!

    JP

    09▼ Regarding "Emergency Anchorage Repairs"
    Repair ship "Akashi Kai" as well as seaplane tender "Akitsushima Kai" can perform "Emergency Anchorage Repairs" at the appropriate locations if certain conditions are fulfilled. Said repair requires "Emergency Repair Materials", several of which can be obtained in this event. We also buffed the repairs somewhat... just try them out if you get the opportunity to do so!

    09▼「緊急泊地修理」について
    工作艦「明石改」及び水上機母艦「秋津洲改」は、一定の条件を満たせば修理に適した場所で「緊急泊地修理」が可能です。同修理に必要な「緊急修理資材」は、本作戦でも複数入手可能です。また何気に演出を少し強化してみました…機会があれば、お試しください!

    JP

    10▼ New ship girl "Shinshū Maru" as reward for clearing the Main Operation
    "Shinshū Maru", the pioneer of modern amphibious assault ships and a mysterious ship that also had several cover names such sa "R1" or "GL", will join the fleet of any admiral who successfully clears E-4 "The Battle off Batavia" and therefore this event's Main Operation"! Parsley is responsible for her design and she's voiced by Toyoguchi Megumi!

    10▼前段作戦突破:新艦娘「神州丸」の艦隊合流
    前段作戦最終海域【バタビア沖海戦】を含め、本作戦前段作戦を全て攻略突破された提督の元には、「R1」や「GL」など、複数の秘匿名を持つ秘密の艦、現代の強襲揚陸艦の先駆け「神州丸」が合流!デザインはパセリさん&CVは豊口めぐみさんです!

    • Too early. I was hoping for a mid-December start because I'm clearing my 5-5 quests this month. I hope Amagi drops this event though.

    • Damn late this month? Oh boy, here we go again. 

        Loading editor
    • Hopefully they give us more information soon.

        Loading editor
    • Maaan, I'm not prepared.... Invested a bunch of resources on quests last month. I thought we had more time.....

    • we gonna have another fast event
      it's seem they fast forward it, to introduction new USA ship for
      Kancolle s2 at leyte battle

    • A Dutch girl would be cool, though I'd love to see hms Electra, the plucky little star of Java Sea. We haven't had a sub for a couple of events right? A couple of allied ones were present at Badung.

      Though given the US CA guns gien recently, Houston would make sense (though she doesn't match the State bird in the art).

    • From the hint of Desdiv 8 I thought the event was going to be at Guadalcanal and the USN ship could be USS Chicago, but since it's most likely the Battle of Badung Strait, the American CA could be USS Houston, that sunk in the same area of operation some 10 days later in the Battle of Sunda Strait.

      A Dutch ship would be cool though... One can dream....

      Yeah, the cruiser is probably Houston. The devs have surprised us before, though, so De Ruyter could be a release as well.

    • I like both of the artists doing the new girls, so that's a major thing to look forward to. I'm totally going to soil myself if we get the last unimplemented Mutsuki sister this event.

    • Northampton class

    • I only started playing recently and this is gonna be the first event for me, does this mean I have to have Asashio, Ooshio, Michishio and Arashio to complete the event? I'm sure I won't be able to sufficiently level them up in a week.

      Although we have to remember take the logical assumption with a grain of salt, don't forget they gave us Nelson in the Bismarck hunt event rather than Rodney lol.

      You won't need them, but they'll probably get damage buff on a few nodes and/or the boss.

    • It's also possible to see Aussie ship like Perth if we're going to get new cruiser besides USS Northampton or USS Houston.

      I really doubt we are going to get more light cruisers this year since we already two as rewards.  Meanwhile we haven't had a new CA since Pola.

      If we get an allied submarine it will probably be USS Mingo.

      Was looking through the Orders of Battle for the Dutch East Indies campaign...the only ships - aside from transports and merchant tankers - that have yet to be released are seaplane tender Kamikawa Maru and the last two remaining Kageros, Hayashio and Natsushio. Maybe we'll get one of these this turn, who knows?

      Kashii was also present in the area, helping with landings. And let's not forget Shirakumo...

      Usually,it's for hard/medium difficulty,but for easy or casual,you can use any ships.

      If you're like me, who was in a similar situation when I started out, and you don't have all the fleets unlocked and/or less than 5 battleships and carriers, or less than 10 Heavy and/or Light cruisers... then definitely look into running it on Casual on the later maps. You'll also need some Type 91 AP shells for hard enemies and some Type 3 AA shells for installations.

      You might be able to do the first world or two on Easy, but it might also be very hard...

      If we get a Guadalcanal invasion event in 2020, I would bet seaplane tender Kamikawa Maru will be one of the new ships.

      Make sure you have some LBAA. They are kinda rare and expensive to construct, but you should have at least 8 of them.

      If it's your first event, focus on the resources gathering and start it when the strategy is discovered. Don't feel the pressure of completing it, focus on the maps you can clear and farm for all the ship you can, the event drops are rare and generally very useful.

      My first event I managed to clear only 2 maps of the summer 17 event...

    • Aha! They told me I was crazy for power leveling DesDiv 8 to Lvl.99 and completely neglecting my heavy cruisers. Time for my hard work to pay off~

      Taking it easy is what I'm planning to do. I'm very well aware that I'm not equipped to do good, so I just hope for some nice drops. Though, honestly the reason I started playing was that I fell in love with a certain event-only ship and I hope to someday get her.

      Agreed...she's the last IJN cruiser to enter the game, unless there are unknown plans to include Yakumo, Izumo, and Iwate at some point in the future...

      HMAS Perth Is the one that makes sense, given the location of the event, but hey, we got Garibaldi in Alaska, so everything can happen.... Still waiting on the Dutch girl though, we still need a couple more ships, maybe 3 more, inb4 they are all kaiboukan.....

      I mean ther are 7 new girls coming, and given the location the Dutch have a relatively high chance of appearing.
