Dengeki Online article about the KanColle Kai trailer: http://dengekionline.com/elem/000/000/964/964096
-Zuikaku kai 2 to be released sometime in November.
-Saury fishing mini event is underway and available in World 1 and 3, rewarding a special furniture.
-You can increase their droprate with illumination equipment, like searchlights.
-The fish will disappear at the end of the mini event in 3 weeks.
-Isokaze drops temporarily at 1-5, 1-6 and 2-5.
-Isokaze received a cooking CG and several others received fishing CGs along with new lines.
-Several new UI updates such as refueling faster, swapping around ships in fleet formation and many more.
-Katori and Akigumo now buildable.
-KanColle will add android support in Winter.
-Fall Event will be relatively short and easy.
But last time I played the slot machine, I got kicked out when I tried to marry the cherry in the slots.
Just scrap lots of ships. Every time you scrap a ship you have a chance of receiving a fish. The higher the level the ship, the higher the chance of getting a fish. If you scrap someone level 70+ the chances are almost 100%. Why don't you try it out?
First you play Re lottery (mobs), then you play compass lottery (midboss), then you face the boss with a debilitated fleet (final boss)
but, why. The parent company gets pissed at foreigners for playing it. The game play requires little skill other than just set up memorization. The whole uses of moe girls could be considered click bate. Im, not even sure why this is a game. it would be better off as an anime or a manga (I know there is allready an anime).
Urgent: report the number of fish in your inventory right now.
There is an entire city fueled by the addiction caused by slot machines and similar RNG games. RNG is fun, even when it fucks you over. At least this game has cute girls and odds aren't purposefully stacked to increase the jew gold coffers.
Pushing 400 sorties to 1-5, about 350 S-Ranks for Isokaze..
Why doesn't she want to come home, /jp/? Did I fuck Tanaka's wife in a past life?
Unchanged since Friday. I'd rather get the weeklies done first.

How many runs though? I'm sitting on 99 1-5 runs and 12 pikes. I can't imagine it being difficult to get 30 if you're using optimized equipment. I'm just farming for isokaze anyway
Two 1-1 runs and less than 40 3-3 runs. Never got two fish in one sortie but most of the time I got one either from I or G. I got a lot of them from I at first but they seemingly started to run out after some time. Thankfully compass started directing me to boss more often then. Later I had ~50% success rate per sortie with decent chances at both I and G.
I used pic related. Hai hai is love.

sonar, flashlight, lookout and flare
Up to 20 now. I feel like I should either farm 2-3 a day from now on, or farm 5 and then take a week off to let my resources build back since I feel like I'm using way too much for a mini-event.
Equipment feels really insignificant, at least personally. I farmed 15 fish in a day from 3-3, stopped to do other stuff and then got 5 in a row the following day. Only equipment I have is sonars, and in the latter run I had half the amount as the first time.
Really I think they key is to not try and just bang the event out; farm a couple fish, then go back to your regular stuff for a while and try for some more fish the next day or so. Its three weeks after all.
Various setups. CVs: Amagi and Katsuragi, 3 green, 2 blue 1 red. 2 CLT with standard 2 yellow, 1 minisub setup. And then throwing in something else with flares/flashlight and good damage output.
Most of the trips were with Isokaze as flagship for art placebo (with flare for light placebo).
>Most of the trips were with Isokaze as flagship for art placebo (with flare for light placebo).
Damn, you're debunking my special CG theory. Maybe use Sonar or searchlight instead of flare, I think the anon who used Isokaze on 3-5 had searchlight on her.
Heh, hopefully your streak will end soon. Maybe do 3-5 a couple of times with multiple special CGs if you have buckets left to spare. It has the highest drop rate but it might be because less people farm it so overfishing doesn't kick in as often as on spammable 3-3.
Stupid slut on ~lv67 failed total of four times when I was upgrading Akizuki gun to +9. Thankfully she's gotten better after getting past lv80 and thinking abut dicks doesn't disrupt her work anymore.
Damn, she gets bigger and bigger with each seasonal update
I love it, based devs
I have a max starred 94 FD. What should I do with it? I already have a 12.7AAFD, and Teruduki gives me 2 of the 10cm guns. I also have a max starred 90mm, which is probably better than the 12.7 for Maya.
Should I just go for another 10cm AAFD?
11 fish and Isokaze in about 50 runs, not bad.
>Trying to have the perfect honey moon with Tone in 4-3
>Every single time we steer off course to either L node or H node.
I don't want it to go like this.
Actually, my little sub killer can one shot Yo Class Elite in Line Ahead
You'll need buckets in 2-2
Then you'll need luck for 4-4. 5-2 is easy
That's the plan. Six subs in teams of three first and then I'll switch to 5DD 1CAV.
Thankfully 5-2 is already done. As for buckets, we'll see. Maybe I'll just end up with two pages of kanmusu to repair.
BBs sometimes oneshot DDs, subs are at risk vs Aboob on first node.
I'm starting to believe in Server Overfishing. I've ran 3-3 10 times today, and 1-5 20 times.
I got 2 fish, one from 1-5 and the other from 3-3. It's been more than 24 hours since I last ran 3-3, so they should have come back to that.
Any other maps that are good? I don't have enough buckets to run 3-5 enough.
Mamiya and Irako don't take up equipment space tho, they sit in the Item menu.
We could have had Mamiya or Irako as the supply ship and more Fujikawa goodness, but instead we got fast suck and Konishit.
Really, I'm with you on this, Akitsushitma and that Kirito boat are so useless, I'd dig some real support and supply ships.
The wiki says it's something like 95% chance to go E from G. It's a risk I can afford. My bigger issue is I only have two hours or so before I have to leave the game for who knows how many days and I have already sent out expedition 26.
Chevrons stronk. Thank you, I like them a lot.
Seiran, autogyro and two zuiuns 12. I should probably get two more autogyros for more consistent non-crit damage. I wish I had the T0 sonar. Maybe it will be possible to craft from T3 similar to how big searchlight is created?
Fubuki that fucking slut, she already has Akagi.
Alright I finished going full autismo and grabbed all the fairy sprites (solo and with their equipment). I'm down to upload it if anyone wants but I don't know where so tell me where. All of them are labeled so if you want to just look for a specific one you can.
Look at that face, she wants to fish.
Alright here is the zip of Fairy Sprites. Do with it what you will. They are truly cute.
OK, here are the current stats on my 1-5 quest to obtain Isokaze:
85 total runs:
55 S-rank at boss
9 A-rank at boss
21 times nuked at the first node
Drops at boss S-rank:
4x Jintsuu, Tama, Ayanami
3x Kinugasa, I-58, Fubuki, I-8
2x Furutaka, Kagerou, Shikinami, Aoba, Kikuzuki, Satsuki, Hatsuyuki, I-168, Shirayuki
1x Sendai, Naka, Jun'you, Kako, Isonami, Isuzu, Shiranui, Houshou
Not too bad. I'm currently rolling with
182 Total Runs
16 Chokes on Boss
31 First node nukes
I'm not going to stop until she drops but man it's looking like it will take awhile.
I don't know why I downloaded it, but the Egusa fairies are always the most badass.
Thanks! Please post the subscribe link on social media of your choice. More updates tomorrow.
The A ranks are because I grind the girls down until they have medium damage and they start losing their effectiveness because I don't want to waste buckets on them until they are heavily damaged. The nuke sub is the nuke sub. I'm sure you've experienced it (you are lvl 80+, right?).
Do you have four docks? Low level DDs repair quite fast.
Both DD and CL can oneshot everyone. BBV and CVL can oneshot everyone except for gold sub for which they need crits.
You should craft or farm Akitsu Maru. Or at least get better Zuiuns for the BBV and Tenzans 12 for CVL as they give +6 ASW.
I don't even use Saiun anymore, S ranks are guaranteed.
Cheapest composition I have
Most of my cruisers, bbs and cvs are married. No exp necessary on any of them. Swap in 1-2 ships for exp if you want to
https://twitter.com/akankore1/status/653085031548583936 uses an extremely expensive version with 1 clt so use what you want
real fleet sucks ass
subs same thing but way cheaper at least
They're a lot better in ending battles without much scratch, works out better in the long run. Common CAs cost the same ammo and 50%+ more fuel
Unless of course you want to sortie mogami types
Meant for >>14209648
And that's only if you aren't going to kai those DDs. If you are I think you don't need support. I cleared it with a dupe Oboro because my Oboro was sent on that 80 hour expedition by mistake.
In addition you only need ~155 fighter power total. The green planes you have is overkill.
Ew. Those equips and levels.
Well you could've kai'd and modernized the DDs for starters, but whatever. I suppose you didn't manage to get the catapult for Shoukaku either?
Place them like DD, BB, DD, CVL, Shoukaku, Zuikaku. 2x gun + radar on DDs. Ducky guns + air radar for AACI if you have it. You will probably have to yasen and hope your DDs pick weakened targets unless you want to setup boss support.
It's what he gets for not leveling the best Kagerou and Yuugumo. Only a few can be the best of 2 classes.
Amount of info isn't the main problem in my opinion. Colors are eyecancer (person who decided morale will look like that should be shot) and all the circles are seriously annoying. They go against square-ish UI of the game so it seems like stuff gets cut off and in general they waste a lot of space. Enemy avatars are too small, so looking at them simply hurts and they serve no purpose.
Far too many fighters. http://aircalc.net/index.htm?yIUACuK0geCggzjhgJ3hg43goanSmdGPTeGAsdCG4YGP4LyG0qPCtOC8v9Kj0YzijYwpAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA (I know, Zuikaku Kai Ni is cheating, it's just an example) is enough for AS+ and if you're too lazy to train DDs, you should go for AS and use more bombers.
Even unremodeled Oboro should be able to deal damage in yasen so give her your two strongest guns. Same with Akigumo, why the hell did you even put ASW on her?
They're there, you can't help but see them. Especially since they're roght in the middle, between game screen and actually important info so it's impossible to avoid seeing that crap.
Yeah, I cant believe I didn't mention it, this part was bugging me the most when I saw screenshots of KC3Kai for the first time. Do they assume people can't recognize the ships even by their English names? Truly a tool for wikia users.
Went way overkill on the Reppuu there.
You too, and he didn't even say he had Reppuu 601 either.
This should be enough, assuming he has double chevrons on all the planes:
Even before the air combat mechanic revamp last November 155 fighter power was already enough for 5-2. With that revamp, it became 152 because fighters became just about impossible to be shot down by an enemy fleet with no fighters, making the first node safe for fighters. And with the aircraft proficiency mechanic as long as the bombers didn't get shot down too much they wouldn't lose rank and with it their little fighter power, so as long as you didn't put them in too small a slot and none of the enemies you met could do AACI you wouldn't lose their little bonus fighter power. And it adds up.
Whoops posted the wrong one. This should be the correct one.
If he has a Tomonaga or extra Murata the first one would work though.
>You too, and he didn't even say he had Reppuu 601 either.
I said I was going for AS+. Hmm, aircalc might not show it because default option only gives chevron bonus to fighters. Pic related is what I see. I'm trying to conserve my bauxite.
Reppuu 601 isn't needed because Repuu 601 + Zero 21 (skilled) gives less fp than two Reppuu.
>I said I was going for AS+.
Exactly, going for AS+ at the boss node is overkill. AS is enough.
>I'm trying to conserve my bauxite.
Penny wise, pound foolish. You're going to lose more bauxite with multiple failed runs than a single successful run, let alone other resources.
Also if you have Tomonaga and two Reppuu 601 why aren't you using it already? Actually just post all the planes you have, that'd make things easier.
>Repuu 601 + Zero 21 (skilled) gives less fp than two Reppuu
Use Reppuu 601 + Reppuu or two Reppuu 601 instead? You don't have to use Zero 21 (skilled) with a Reppuu 601 you know?
>You're going to lose more bauxite with multiple failed runs than a single successful run, let alone other resources.
I cleared the weekly in two sorties today and both of times didn't need yasen, even when Kuma fell to air strike and Ta-chan KO'd Shoukaku at the start.
I always went for AS+ and never needed more than four sorties for the weekly, even before chevrons.
>Also if you have Tomonaga and two Reppuu 601 why aren't you using it already?
I don't understand but okay.
Zero 21 (skilled) has better stats than Reppuu so I always try to use it when AS number allows it.
I used to go with AS+ at the boss node until I realised that it was inefficient, both at getting me to the boss node and at dealing damage there. And that was long before last November's update.
Still, even going with AS+ I feel that 309 fighter power is overkill. With the mechanics as they are now I don't think you'll need more than 299 fighter power. Try this setup instead:
(Note that I'm assuming no zuiuns. If zuiuns are used the needed fighter power would be slightly higher.)
>I don't understand but okay.
When I posted that I thought you were that anon who had problems with clearing the cranes 5-2 quest. I just realised you were the other anon giving advice to him. But anyway.
Clearing the weekly is different from clearing a specific composition quest. The weekly allows you to use up to 3 BB (2 BB 1 CL/DD is good enough for me). The quest needs 2 DD so you can only bring one BB at most. This makes it more important for the carriers to deal enough damage to make up for this reduced firepower.
>Zero 21 (skilled) has better stats than Reppuu so I always try to use it when AS number allows it.
I'm not convinced its stats help much, especially with the mechanics as they are now. But okay.
And looking at your setup again, the saiun is a waste on a 12 slot size; you should be using a bomber there instead. Saiun would be reasonable if it's Jun'you Kai 2.
In any case are you crafting Taihou or Ryuusei Kai? Because there aren't many places to burn bauxite and your other planes look decent. Even when I was spamming radar recipes and doing 2/5/38 (fuck expedition 3) I was always running out of steel rather than bauxite.
Also for the other guy he can try this if he has Hiyou:
I still need 10 more fish and to level Isokaze, Teruzuki and Hiei to 70/75.
This event better be short and easy like they said, I'm going to end up going in with not much more than regen.
Most likely yes.
I think you'll be fine even with that.
I went into summer '15 with 4 digits for everything except bauxite (made the big mistake of clearing 4-5 and 5-5 before the event started) and didn't buy more than ~3k fuel after that. And I still got my e-peen medal.
Regen will certainly be more than enough for the upcoming event. Last autumn I didn't even spend 50 buckets or 10k resources for clearing.
You can't get Isokaze at 1-5 if you already have her.
Also I didn't login at all until 4 days into the event, so there's that too.
Made me micromanage to the utmost limit though; thrilling as it was, I'm not sure I want to go through that again.
top route bottom route its all the same
ranking is literally luckshit
either you get lucky all the time or shit all the time
Actually, for a month I was doing the weekly with 2DDs because I didn't remember branching rules and simply copied the composition from Hiryuu quest. Today I used Kuma + Nachi + Hyuuga. Okay, I'll try AS starting this week.
Are you saying aircalc has wrong values for chevron bonus? I did notice gakada's KCV tends to state higher AS value and wasn't sure why was it so.
My Junyou, Chitose and dragons are already high level so I wanted to train up Hiyou. I guess you're saying to ditch Saiun? Well, I wanted to avoid red T because it could screw my other ships but usually I have no problems with ignoring its existence.
Yeah, I'm trying to get Taihou, she's the only one I'm missing. I know my number of Ryuusei Kai is pathetically low but on the other hand I did fine so far with what I have so I don't feel the need to craft them. After Akigumo gets remodeled I'll start the chain for second Murata which will bring up the amount of combat ready torpedo bombers to total of 8 which should be enough even for 4CVs in Kidou Butai.
You will fap to her? My nigga.
>trying to do 5-4 with subs after clearing final form
Sometimes one wonders how that fucker manages to survive shelling and torpedo from a half sparkled kai ni DD while hitting twice.
you don't get it
imagine having a sub go orange 80% of the time on 1st node
imagine having no one targeting the gold CL/DD on the preboss/boss
imagine the gold CL at boss always targeting your SSVs
imagine 1/4 of your runs being retreats from wo/oni crits from preboss
imagine getting at least 1 ship hit to red/orange by ru/ta every time you reach boss
For subs that's perfectly normal, even with final form.
For north fleet the problem can only be in your end. You also don't need to bucket every time someone goes chuuha at 5-4. I was running with 3 ships at chuuha earlier and they were fine for 3 runs before I had to bucket.
It doesn't matter if you have every equip maxed if the rest of your setup sucks. For first you'll want someone who can actually one shot things reliably as your flag.
>Actually, for a month I was doing the weekly with 2DDs because I didn't remember branching rules and simply copied the composition from Hiryuu quest.
Uh, okay. It was one of the first things I committed to memory, even before I actually unlocked that map, so uh, yeah. But moving on.
Also doing 5-2 with 2 unremodelled DDs is quite different from doing it with 2 remodelled DDs, so you've got to take that into account, too.
>Are you saying aircalc has wrong values for chevron bonus?
No, I have no reason to believe their values are wrong, and even if they are, I have no reason to believe they'd be overstated; if anything, they'd be understated instead. It's just that zuiuns, like red and blue planes, are still just as easy to shoot down, so you have to treat them like you treated pre-November '14 fighters; at 5-2-A for example, fighters won't be shot down but zuiuns will, so you still have to account for fighter power lost there. Same thing if you're bringing a fighter-bomber to 5-2 for whatever reason
In general, when it comes to calculating optimal fighter power, zuiuns are particularly difficult and complicated to work with; even among seaplane bombers, seiran is simpler to work with than zuiuns, simply because it has no fighter power. For one, there's the issue of slot size. A fighter-bomber can at least be put on a large enough slot size, which all CVs and most CVLs have. With the exception of Fusou-class Kai 2's 4th slots, the slot size for zuiuns is very limited. Which means you can still lose fighter power from them quite easily. On top of that, because of this they can easily lose ranks even if you get AS+ all the way. As a result, the conditions under which you can reliably take zuiuns' fighter power into account without having to increase the fighter power needed are even stricter than for red and blue planes.
>I did notice gakada's KCV tends to state higher AS value and wasn't sure why was it so.
Probably took it from wikia; double chevron bombers apparently give 3.443-3.519 fighter power. The calculator assumes it to be a flat 3. This would affect bombers which already give fighter power. If there are other discrepancies as well then I don't know.
>I guess you're saying to ditch Saiun?
Yeah, despite the increased contact rate double chevron saiun gives, the bombers have benefited way more from the plane ranks.
>Yeah, I'm trying to get Taihou, she's the only one I'm missing.
Good luck with getting her.
>I know my number of Ryuusei Kai is pathetically low but on the other hand I did fine so far with what I have so I don't feel the need to craft them. After Akigumo gets remodeled I'll start the chain for second Murata which will bring up the amount of combat ready torpedo bombers to total of 8 which should be enough even for 4CVs in Kidou Butai.
I guess that isn't unreasonable, although 12 is my safe point.
With that said, you'll want more bombers for your support fleet anyway. Maybe 24 bombers of Suisei M12A/Ryuusei Kai-tier or better (8 bombers for kidou butai + 16 bombers for both supports). Even after getting that second Murata, you'll still only have 15 such bombers, so you'll still need 9 more.
Though for that I guess you can farm 9 Souryuu for their T99 Egusa or something.
That was before we had all those ranked planes. Stacking 4 bombers actually increases your support fleet's damage now, although there's no news regarding its accuracy I've heard so far.
And even before that update, for most carriers to reach damage cap at hankousen you needed 3 planes for that, so that'd still be 12 bombers for support. And even with Shoukaku/Taihou/Souryuu/Hiryuu for support fleet who only need 2 planes to reach the cap that's still 8 planes for support, which is still one short.
Hey, man. >>14209451 here. I just did another 6 runs today and finally got her. Don't give up, you're shipfu is within your grasp! Let me know when you get her!
Impossible in looks and stats. All there is left is left to add is a megane carrier and I'm set.
It would be just like Shoukaku kai 2 conversion, except it would be permanent. It's either a third hotel or a carrier: hotel edition. Shoukaku remodel swapping and crane item were just the prototype testing for Shinano.
How the fuck do you guys get so many fish from 3-3? I've done a lot of runs and only have gotten 4 today.
Don't use depth charge, I don't think it does anything. Use another star shell or searchlight on Ooyodo, if not, then another drum. If you already got around 10 fish, you have to wait a day to do it again.
Anyone else having issues with KC3 right now?
No matter how I launch when it goes to get the API link it keeps asking me to log in on the DMM site and I keep getting the "warning american ips cant do this"
And yes I am forcing the cookie hack, I just randomly started having troubles 20 minutes ago.
>ranking with subs
God where does he get all the time to do all that shit together? He has 2 frogs already and rank 100, and he has pretty much all 250k in kancolle too, and also draws, and can breath too?
So how do you play your KanColle now, /jp/?
I'm playing direct to DMM now in firefox using cookie method.
I always play API in flash player projector but after the latest maintenance, I'm switching to this method.
>Devs did a good job inconveniencing us and killing PVP. I just fucking got a D rank yesterday.
Oh woe is me, whatever will I do without refreshing PvP?
I can still hear her shrill, squirrel-like squeals ringing in my ears.
I've been playing with the game in full mute over half the time recently. I somewhat feel like it's defeating some of the purpose of the game, but I still continue to do it because I feel like listening to other things.
Free from the fish, time to stockpile for the event.
Whenever I try to watch anime while playing I end up just ignoring the game because it gets too annoying and intrusive to the experience to have to advance the sortie every minute while I'm trying to watch what's happening. I tend to turn on long talk videos and set the game to full mute so I can let the video run for a good hour and listen to it while I mindlessly advance the sorties.
So, what theme are we gettning for next event? More fishing and killing submarines? I saw a small discussion in futaba about Atago/Takao getting kai ni for next event but when they mentioned Shinano I should have guessed it was all speculation.
Huh? My KCV only showed the updated health bars *after* advancing to the next node. I switched to KC3 Kai for that reason, so I could see the new health bars from the beginning so as not to let any of my ships sink.
As the best CL in the best game, she is supposed to project an aura of confidence and invincibility; abookmark's seiyuu sounded like she was afraid to be alive with her continuous repeating attack instructions and repeating OK confirmation. All the constant KTKM bullying and bow damaged must have gotten to her head.
She's only good to be bullied.
Well, the Katori/Amagi event was "fun" but quite hard at the same time, I was forced to finish it in ez/med to be able to secure her in time, so who knows, we could be getting 1st map something asw related, and the rest all ibs tier or combined fleet ones with 11 of 12 nodes filled with elite tsus.
No you shouldn't be worried. To be worried implies that the impending result is still up in the air.
Let me reassure you, you have no chance at this point of getting your points. You dun fucked up.
And so did I
You have to login with the DMM apk after installing the apk.
It doesn't work if you login through your phone browser and of course there is a time thing, you needed to do it during the TGS timeframe..
I was good for the login part, since I was playing another DMM game at the moment on my phone, and the game wouldn't have my data if I didn't log in. I'm not sure about the time frame part since I only knew about it when an anon posted that there was only a day left to do it, but I installed it a day before. Don't think TGS was only a day, but maybe the promotion was only for that day.
I'm sure I installed the app and logged in before TGS ended, but didn't get anything too. This makes me think the exact time frame for the campaign was really different, since I can't think of anything else that could've gone wrong.
Zuikaku kai2 in the maintenance that ends the event, and another catapult as an event map reward, with no indication about what it's for if you already have a second catapult.
It'll have 4 maps, the first one being easy sub sweeping, and the last will have an installation boss and ban CVs. The new ships will be three generic destroyers and a landing ship similar to Akitsumaru.
If Prinz or Akizuki do not drop this Fall event, their anniversary, you can be sure they will stick with not releasing them again. Every ship the devs deem valuable were always out of reach for at least a year or less. It's also kind of true with equipment.
I doubt it. I think they will drop by winter 2016 at the latest. Same with Amagi. And Akitsushima will take until spring '16 at the latest.
The problem is with Teruzuki. You'd be lucky to see her by winter '17.
Considering how easy it was to get them during last year's fall event, chances are they're going to be added in LSC sooner or later mainly because some people would rather farm them for their equipment.
It's hard to define, but most of the time if the pronunciation is soft, it's a pleasant sounding name. If it's hard sounding, it's just not that good in my opinion. Something like Mogami or Ooyodo are soft sounding and pleasant to hear, but Yukikaze and Bismarck sound too harsh for female names.
The only ships that I like, with names that correspond to this description would be Midway and Coral Sea.
and maybe the Des Moines, because I played it WoWS
It's sorta hard to match names because Japanese syllables and naming structure are so different compared to burgerspeak
At first, you think this game is a silly RNG game that you can play easily.
But after some time, clearing maps, it will become addicting.
And when event come, you will be forced to use your private time to finish it.
After your failure in event, you will stockpile, raise the lvls of your ships and prepare for next event. And that's the reason why you need to play it everyday, thinking "Ah I must finish my dailies before I go to work/sleep".
Coming from a player started last mid November 2013.
Not only because its related to WoWs, but Des Moines sounds cute, being french helps a lot I guess.
Still, I would only want Iowa or Alaska, anything else is irrelevant for my tastes.
