Gameplay

  • Each map has its own branching rule. Where your fleet heading relies on your fleet composition and equipment.
  • when you sortie: the battle is auto, you only need to roll compass, choose the formation


(If you fleet have enough ships,(more) formation options will appear) KanColleFormation

Formation Icon When to use
Line Ahead LineAhead best against surface ship
Double Line DoubleLine When your want to sink both surface ship and submarince , or for Nelson touch
Diamond Diamond When you enter air-raid node or arial-battle node
Echelon Echelon only for Nagato/Mutsu touch
Line Abreast LineAbreast best against submarince
Vanguard (AKA. spoon) Vanguard Event-exclusive formation , a defensive formation, shouldn't use on heavy ships comp
  • watch the day battle unfold, then choose :
    • choose to enter night battle or not (to finish off any enemy survive the day battle)

KanColleNightAttackLeft:Leave , Right: Night battle

    • choose to advance to next location or retreat.

KanColleSortieContinueLeft: Advance to next location/node, Right: Retreat

  • Choose the night battle will consume more Ammunitionammo and ship's morale
  • Read the wikia for recommended fleet composition, branching rule, and the enemy composition.
  • Unlike most web/mobile games , this game has "pernament death" : if your ship reach 0 hp , she will sink and LOST FOREVER.
  • The game has a mechanism that prevent ships from reaching 0 hp as long as the ship are not heavily damaged (大破) before advance to new location/node.
  • if the ship you want to keep is is heavily damaged (大破) , click the RETREAT button.


Tip for Combat

Standand

  • Artillery Spotting:if your fleet obtained AS+(Air Supremacy) or AS(Air Superiority) , your ships can trigger special attack with certain equipment set-up (in shelling phase), here are the list of most common special attacks against surface ship can be perform in day battle:
Type Image Note
Double Attack(DA) KahoGuide-DA 2 main guns RedGunLightRedGunMediumRedGunHeavy and a Seaplaneseaplane recon/bomber.Any extra GreenGunDP/YellowGun will turn the set-up into mix cut-in attack, which is a weaker attack.
APCI 250px 2 main guns RedGunLightRedGunMediumRedGunHeavy, a Seaplaneseaplane recon/bomber,and RedAmmo AP shell.
CVCI KahoGuide-CVCI1 Cut-in for CV(L) , need BluePlane and RedPlane
  • use your viewer to calculate Fighter Power of your fleet and see enemy fleet Fighter Power

KahoGuide-AirPower

  • Use fighter GreenPlane/Seaplane Fighter Icon, Seaplane bomber Seaplane with high Icon AAanti-air stats to effectively raise your fleet Fighter Power
  • Night battle: Below are common attacks against surface ship for night battle:
Type Image Note
Double Attack(DA) Kahoguide-DAnight DA has 99% chance to activate.
Torpedo Cut-In(TCI) Kahoguide-tci Icon Luckluck-based attack but strongest attack in night battle.Chance to trigger this attack is based on ship's Icon Luckluck.
  • Plane can rank up with Aircraft Proficiency
    • Bomber generally be put in large planes slot to avoid losing rank and stronger opening air-strike.
  • All ships capable of attacking submarines are forced to attack submarines, so ship like DD, CL, CVL(and CAV/BBV/AV if they equipped with seaplane bomber) will ignore surface ships and attack submarine first.
    • Ships with 0 displayed ASW stat or CVL/CAV/BBV/AV only equipping planes with no ASW stat are incapable of attacking submarines.
  • CVLs and CVs can't attack in shelling phase when in chuuha/taiha state, so you might want to repair them if they in chuuha state.

Anti-air Cut in(AACI)

Aerial node
An aerial battle node
Raid node
An air raid node
  • Detail: AACI
  • AACI is used for an easier time getting thought Air-raid node and Arial Battle Node (to deal with opening air-strike in general)

Note that:

  • Only one ship can perform in each battle, if more than one ship use AACI set, they will be rolled and checked separately.
  • Akizuki-class have unique and best AACI but lowest priority in-game, if put with other ship with AACI set, their AACI will be checked last.
    • Never pair Akizuki-class AACI with other ship AACI
    • Only exception is Maya AACI, since Maya AACI is as strong as Akizuki-class AACI

Anti-installation duty

  • Detail:Installation Type
  • Any special torpedo-based attack (mixed-CI, TCI, and opening/closing torpedo) does not aim at them
    • Normal torpedo salvo in night battle can target them.
  • Torpedo stat is not accounted when attacking Installation (except few rare cases).
  • They are vulnerable against certain equipments.
  • Carriers equipped with RedPlane dive bombers can't attack Installation in shelling phase, except some planes.
  • You will meet this type of enemy in 4-3, 4-5, 6-4 and event maps.

Big 7's Special Cut-in attack:"Touch"

  • After the the debut of NelsonNelson Banner and her special attack "Nelson touch" in Early Fall 2018 Event, the game slowly added similar special attack to other big-7 battleships in the game(NagatoNagato Kai Ni Banner ,MutsuMutsu Banner, ColoradoColorado Banner).
  • The said special cut-in attack (commonly called as "touch") can trigger in shelling phase when the said battleships put in flagship position and the fleet meets certain requirements. Requirements are different depending on which battleship you put as flagship. (go to their respective page to check their requirements)
  • When triggered, within the flagship shelling turn, the flagship and 1 or 2 other ships will simultaneously fire 3 random salvos at the enemy fleet.
    • Other ship shelling turns won't be affected by this special cut-in attack.
