[[Jun'you]] bringing 2x Ryuusei Kai and 2x Reppuu did nicely against the Abyssal light fleets in E1. Although there was a bit of an issue when it came to T-disadvantage at boss, the extra torpedo power went a long way, focusing shelling power on heavier ships and thus saving us from troubles.
+
The calm before the storm, this is the easiest map (and possibly the only easy map) in this event. 1CL 5DD is the staple composition. Anti-submarine weapons will do the trick nicely. There's a LoS check pre-boss, it appears high LoS results in more ACDGI and low LoS results in more BEFHI. The LoS seems to be around '''42-49 effective LoS (old formula)'''.
   
Weakest ship in the fleet was [[Satsuki]], level 30-, unmodernized. She went into the red a lot of times until we realized the "actual" effect of Searchlight in event was making the ship carrying it fall to lower priority on the Abyssal's hit list. Admiral decided to take his chances and put nothing but Star Shell, Searchlight and damecon on Satsuki. It worked and somehow, she was no longer targeted by the enemy fleets. Repair cost dropped to about 2-3 buckets per run on average.</div>
+
It's recommended to have at least 4 sets of full ASW ships and 1-2 partial ASW ship for the final run. That leaves only two ships with radars/seaplanes to meet LoS requirement. In either cases, [[Ooyodo]] with 2x [[Type 0 Observation Seaplane]] and another DD with [[Type 33 Surface RADAR]] solved LoS issue completely.

<div style="color:navyblue;background:lightgray;border:solid 1px lightgray;border-radius:10px;padding:10px;margin:20px;margin-top:-3px;margin-bottom:0px;">The strategy deployed in E2 was probably the most unorthodox, a fleet of Sendai flagship and 5 DDs: 1 elite, 2 combat-ready and 2 radar/searchlight mule. A pattern emerged from our map early clears and Admiral took note of a few things.
 
   
* First, [[Yukikaze]], or any night cut-in setup ships for the matter, was usually targeted at boss and crippled before night battle.
+
To make matter worse, G node has surface ships. Our fleets rely on [[Yuudachi]] with surface equipment and Ayanami for damage and we went in double line against G node during the first run. Afterwards, we adjusted the LoS (threw out a radar and put a surface gun in) and went north instead. Line ahead [[Submarine Yo-Class|Yo-class]]'s preemptive torp is bad but at least we were prepared for anti-sub warfare.
* Second, the rest of the map on and after last dance (referring to the last boss kill needed to clear a map) appeared to prioritize damaged and weak ships, while at boss Tsu-class and Destroyer princess preferred disabling ships, preventing closing torpedo and night battling. The exception to this rule happened when a heavily damaged ship was brought into a boss fight. Ships at boss would then prefer targeting and sinking the heavily damaged ship.
 
* Finally, evasion could not stop the Abyssal fleet at boss node, either their accuracy was unbelievably high, or goddess luck was on their side.
 
   
When improving your own strategy doesn't help, adapting to your enemy strategy will. So, Admiral devised a countermeasure according to the above:
+
Another note: never, ever, go into night battle against a flagship submarine. Can't hit 'em at all.
   
*[[Akatsuki]] was set up with night cut-in equipment and was placed one slot before [[Yukikaze]]. As a result, she became the decoy, taking all the disabling hits from boss node in place of [[Yukikaze]].
+
{| class="wikitable"
*[[Yayoi]] was a ship shield with damecon and 1x torpedo mount and 1x star shell. Her main attacking phase was the closing torpedo salvo.
+
!'''A'''
*[[Mochizuki]] with radar, searchlight and damecon rarely got targeted in pre-boss night battle and pre-boss shelling, the same warding strategy used in E1.

With these latest adjustments, the ships that get moderately/heavily damaged after E2 shifted from slot 2 [[Yukikaze]] (almost always), slot 3 [[Ayanami]], slot 6 [[Mochizuki]] to slot 3 [[Akatsuki]] (almost always), slot 4 [[Yayoi]] and slot 5 [[Mochizuki]] (less frequent). With the help of carrier support expedition, full torpedo bomber planes sinking 2-3 ships consistently at low cost, the outcome is more S-rank victories, which was good enough to farm there for 4 days straight, and more tolerable repair timers (since weaker and lower-leveled ships are focused).
 
 
Bucket loss ranged from 1-3 buckets per run in comparison to 3-5 bucket loss in the original fleet composition.</div>

<div style="color:navyblue;background:lightgray;border:solid 1px lightgray;border-radius:10px;padding:10px;margin:20px;margin-top:-3px;margin-bottom:0px;">This map was serious business without [[Akitsu Maru]]. Southern route had a chance of going north, into the storm and to an extra pre-boss battle. Nothing screams "Highway to oblivion" more than 4 battles (two pre-boss fights versus Ta-class flagship, Wo-class flagship II and a Ru-class flagship x2 battle) and an ammo-sucking maelstrom before event boss fight.
 
 
The main problem with pre-boss south and boss itself was the formation: Diamond. Maximum flagship protection and with Late Model Destroyers as meat shields, first fleet had a lot of trouble hitting important targets. Even hitting the destroyers themselves was a challenge.
 
 
Only one [[Kitakami|Torpedo Cruiser]] could be deployed, least one must face yet another maelstrom node. Opening airstrike with Ryuusei Kai was rather impractical in this map due to high AA bonus of enemy formation. However, it helped greatly in two earlier nodes, especially Ru-class node.
 
 
[[Kaga]] with 1 wild card, 2 Reppuu and 1 Saiun was able to AS everywhere except pre-boss south against Wo-class flagship II. Extra fleet anti-air equipment helped against Wo-class' airstrike. Sparkling the first fleet would help, since they are capable of taking out annoying late model DDs if hit.
 
 
If hit...
 
 
In the end, it all came down to night battle to take down boss fleet. The goal of day battle was only to take out as many meat shield as possible so that second fleet could attack more important targets, such as the boss herself. There wasn't really any strategy for this map except for using 2x torpedo mount setup for the non-elite DDs.
 
 
In this case, their primary attack phase became the closing torpedo salvo, which hopefully would hit and take out any remaining late model DDs. Unlike shelling, torpedo salvos didn't seem to be affected by combined fleet penalty and thus had a high chance of hitting something. Not like non-elite DDs could do anything in shelling, besides, this gave the girls a chance to cut-in and deal some actual damage to armored targets in night battle.
 
 
Most of the bucket loss for this stage came from the first fleet, since they had low evasion and had to withstand two shelling phases against very powerful opponents. Ninjas for the second fleet! Ninjas!</div>

<div style="color:navyblue;background:lightgray;border:solid 1px lightgray;border-radius:10px;padding:10px;margin:20px;margin-top:-3px;margin-bottom:0px;">A worthy extra event map, this operation pits the fleet girls against two boss-tier enemies. Given the two fleet choices, we decided to stick to Surface fleet and launched a sortie fleet with 3 Battleships and [[Kaga|1 fleet carrier]] as core fighters of the first fleet.

Coming soon
Despite erroneous branching rule posted on wiki page, our fleet reached boss with relative ease using the aforementioned setup. Major hiccups came from the pre-boss against Aircraft Carrier Princess after [[Kongou]] remodeled to Kai ni and lost her AA stats. [[Kaga]] with 3x Reppuu alone was able to AS against Carrier princess in exchange for shelling power and Saiun (not that Saiun would help since the last thing we wanted was T-advantage pre-boss). In initial form, the boss fight was simple. Even with a Wo-class Kai among the boss escorts, our light fleet was able to wipe out everything in night battle most of the time.
+
</div>
 
Things get ugly in last dance as boss. Topping at 190 armor, it became clear that our guns could barely scratch boss, both day and night battle. In addition, two Armored Carrier Princesses were added to boss escort, and further increased the amount of damage required to achieve S-rank victory.
 
 
In order to deal meaningful damage against boss, we swapped double attack with torpedo cut-in for weaker DD. More AA dedicated equipment allowed us to pass pre-boss Carrier-hime fairly easily, and [[Iku|a submarine]] with [[Repair Team]] to tank hits from the Armored carrier princesses at boss.
 
 
Regardless, as [[Kitakami]] was our only Torpedo cruiser and [[Yukikaze]] was our only cut-in DD at the time, we didn't have so much firepower to spare against powered up boss. And the last kill was a close match:
 
 
Night battle started. On our side: [[Shimakaze]], [[Kitakami]], [[Yuudachi]], [[Yukikaze]]; on their side: full health boss, both armored carrier princesses and a late model destroyer. Then [[Kitakami]] cut-in boss for a staggering 200 damage. [[Yuudachi]] double attacked boss for 100 damage. [[Shimakaze]] tried to secure A-rank victory but missed the destroyer. Luckily, the lucky beaver torpedo cut-in and finished off E4 boss. A combined effort of everyone in the fleet, a memorable, well-earned, and no less miraculous victory it was.
 
 
Well done, everyone!</div>

Combined fleet

007 3

We have a new Reppuu queen!

Cf c Highlight

In an amazing streak of luck, Carrier division 1, Fleet carrier Kaga has led the daily crafting team to unbelievable breakthrough, accomplishing a months worth of plane development in one morning.

Three Reppuu (Strong Gale) were finished within mere four attempts.

An honorable mention in the Combined Fleet board for the new Reppuu Queen is all but a small reward to the long list of achievements she had attained in crafting and in battle.

On an unrelated note, the previous title holder was Akagi.

Fleet used, one and only for all attempts. Kitakami: Double attack setup, Kongou: 2 main guns, radar and boiler, Nachi: same load out as Kongou, Haguro has Night scout instead of radar, Shigure: 5th slot has ASW gears, and Yuudachi double attack + radar/star shell setup for the last slot.

Searchlight was abandoned in favor of boilers because searchlight causes the bearer not only to be attacked more often but also to get hit more often as well (lowered evasion). It does not work well as we want everyone to survive till boss. Not to mention shenanigans from RnG seems to lead to more frequent Ri-class cut-in when searchlight was equipped. See four straight easy boss kills without seeing a single cut-in when the cursed searchlight was shoveled over board.

Echelon/Double Line formation pre-boss. Line Abreast boss node when 2/3 heavy ships had taken moderate damage, Double Line otherwise. Echelon appears to grant better cut-in resistance at the cost of accuracy. Support expedition in last dance. They killed the boss, they are the boss!

  • World 5-2 cleared
  • Second Carrier Division sortie quest cleared (1 attempt)
  • Destroyer Division 30 (1st Gen.) sortie quest cleared (2 attempts)
Straight up night double attack setup for elite DDs, damecon on Mutsuki and Kisaragi along with boilers. Flagship carries Searchlight. Kirasagi sank at boss and expended a damecon but they managed S-rank victory and quest clear. Sparkling is not necessary for weaker DDs but it is recommended for stronger ones
  • Fall 2014 Event is over
A long list of newcomers in this event: Suzuya, Akizuki, Akigumo, Prinz Eugen, Nowaki, Hayashimo, Harusame, Ooyodo, Naganami, Asagumo, Maikaze, Taigei, extra Maruyu and extra Mikuma.
In general, the event is one of the easier events—although, personally, not much can be said since it is our fleet's first major event. There are a lot of says go into the second, E2, and the fourth map, E4, since they gave us the most troubles. E1 was a give-away map and E3 could be cleared easily, but not quite as farmable as E2 or E1.
  • New Mikawa Fleet sortie quest cleared (11 tries)
Strategy involves a sacrificial ship carrying Type 0 Seaplanes, attempting to gain a successful recon check. Around 47-54 effective LoS is recommended.

The key point to achieve victory at boss node is to survive Wo-class's opening airstrike with minimal damage. A successful recon check significantly lessens the otherwise devastating bombing damage (with up to 3 ships in red) and gives bonus accuracy and in shelling phase. Cut-in setup with 2x main gun and 1x secondary gun on high luck ships to maximize night battle capability. Double attacks deal scratch damage to Ru-class and Wo-class.

Anti-air guns and radars do nothing against Wo-class's airstrike and the fleet doesn't have enough firepower to take care of boss this way.

There's a LoS check pre-boss, it appears high LoS results in more ACDGI and low LoS results in more BEFHI. The LoS seems to be around 42-49 effective LoS (old formula).

In either cases, Ooyodo with 2x Type 0 Observation Seaplane and another DD with Type 33 Surface RADAR solved LoS issue completely.

To make matter worse, G node has surface ships. Our fleets rely on Yuudachi with surface equipment and Ayanami for damage and we went in double line against G node during the first run. Afterwards, we adjusted the LoS (threw out a radar and put a surface gun in) and went north instead. Line ahead Yo-class's preemptive torp is bad but at least we were prepared for anti-sub warfare.

Another note: never, ever, go into night battle against a flagship submarine. Can't hit 'em at all.
