I'm finally done with all of these fucking remodel quests except for the last one that needs Turkey K2, which I'll have tomorrow.
I can only imagine the hell we'll have to go through for the jets.
They also told us to level up our carriers and prepare tons of bauxite for Midway and we all know how it ended. Strictly speaking they didn't lie, but I learned to take their words with a grain of salt.
Wwwwwwwwwww you don't know how elusive Houshou is until half your fleet is in taiha trying to fish her out from 1-5.
I wonder if they planned this, carriers rarer than her drops in almost all the maps but no of course not her.
Time to do them bloody planes.
Which should I give to a blueprint first, Abukuma or Zuikaku. I like Zuikaku so would like to do her but I think that Abukuma might be more useful to do first since will help with maps and maybe coming event. Thoughts?
T21 Skilled *1
T21 Skilled *2
T52 Skilled *1
T52 Iwai *1
T21 Iwamoto *1
T52A Iwamoto *1
Is T52 Iwai better than T62FB Iwai?
Reminder that if you do any of these two simultaneously you only have to scrap 4 T52s. T62FB Iwai is relatively useless so unless you already have enough special Reppuu T52 is better. Before the new plane mechanics T62FB would have been amazing though
Maybe it is. Here, I fucked up yet again watching some crappy idol concert.
This wasn't suppose to happen. Now I feel like shit.
I'm close to losing my mind. That's the 30th sortie.
The upside is that I had 5 Hachis and 4 of the others so now they are all equal.
Also that was the last kill for the weekly.
The downside. Why the fuck did I sink a ship. She was level 51 too.
The results were somewhat similar SSV or no SSV and I only have one set of remodeled subs so I was switching them around.
Fortunately/unfortunately, no she had only a quad oxygen.
My best torpedoes are on the SSVs and Yuu.
Personally, it's all about time. These can be very time consuming, even dailies can be. It doesn't happen often, but sometimes I have untouched 50 transports quest and 5 bosses in world 2 quest, and I clear the transports on Orel before even having the 50% mark on bosses.
One of these days, I will have both.
So how does one complete the BM1 quest as fast as possible with minimal resources spent? I always seem to finish by saturday or sunday
>monthlies before the reset
This is a good day.
Any suggestions on how to balance out this bm7 comp for ELoS and making it to the boss node?
What's up with the two (nearly) identical wikis? I use http://en.kancollewiki.net myself because I can't stand Wikia's layout or the cringeworthy comments, but aside from that, I can't see why there's need for both of them.
The new wiki is just slower in updating but the layout is superior and no forum faggots in sight. The other one has the most people, so it's faster in updating but way more retards doing retarded decisions and slower because it's bloated. I like the combat page on the new wiki more than the other.
Just noticed I already have Bm7 unlocked. I guess this is good enough to hope a clear before reset?
The only 2 you ever need.
Nope, not yet. I think I'll experiment a bit this month. I managed to reach the boss node with 3 observation seaplanes and 1 night scout (all max) and 3 T22 radars, but it's still very high equipment LoS. I'll post more info later, when I unlock Bm7.
Yeah, but that's an event, and it was restricted to certain difficulties. This is a normal map.
Not an easy one, to be fair, but I just think it's weird how fast they're giving her out. E-5 wasn't hard at all though so it doesn't really matter.
It's probably because of what the other anon said, sub hime incoming.
>still no weekly/monthly that gives supplies for Hayasui
It's never Kamo's time to shine.
So is this good for bm7?
Also do you think the LoS bonus from three double chevron type 0 observation planes can add 10 LoS so I don't have to remove a piece of night equipment?
Fuck, I thought it was supposed to be 1800-1900 and I had ~1940. Thanks. Hopefully I'll be able to not think much about this wasted opportunity in next three weeks.
>night scout failed
Never mind, Makigumo's superior evasion helped out. No way this is hard unless you don't upgrade DD guns.
We convince Tanaka to lock CLTs out of events and give a regular cruiser an opening torpedo. Maybe while we're at it we can ask him to make two carriers outperform an LSC ship. Wait, how do we stop the monkey bias?
You think the cranes are bad? Wait until Kaga gets kai 2.
The CLT ban was necessary because they really are really fucking overpowered. Abukuma is quite overpowered too, though, I agree. At least her opening torpedo isn't even on the same level as a CLTs.
So the cranes aren't favored because an imaginary future update will make them obsolete? What about when Bismarck needed a kai 3 just to be able to compete with the Kongous, who still make half the BBs pointless.
>Wouldn't it be better to save it for middle/end of month for a point boost?
It's giving you the same number of points no matter when you do it. And the event is during the middle of the month, so most people want a blueprint before it.
The absence of new planes on kai ni cranes might have more to do with the awkward cycling between forms which could give rise to bugs or exploits if not programmed correctly. Most likely, it gives them a chance to implement more time-sinks and drip-feed premium equipment as they have been doing for a while.
Thank you based 5BB 1CV fleet for giving me this reward for using you for the final kill.
And this is why you shouldn't be lazy by going south nor use a fleet full of monkeys. Go north.
The mental image of fat weebs spamming touhou pictures while laughing saying "haha that'll show him" is disgusting. Not much worse than the mental image of those same weebs mocking others for not having memedals but still pretty disgusting.
>ABKM does 49 damage to the boss with her closing torp
THANK YOU MEGA ABKM-SAMA
Do you hate resources or something?
Even if you go south you use 2CA 2DD 2CVL and if you do the monthly, you would be done with 2-5 without even touching south route if you got unlucky with A rank.
I know this is supposed to be a big deal, but I can't help but mostly feel disappointed that I didn't get Zuikaku Kai2 instead
Shinano will just be a support ship, the devs already said it in interviews. You shouldn't expect more than 47 battle use planes while the rest are used to replenish the other CVs during battle.
I think I'm permanently locked out of getting Iwamoto. F28 didn't show up the first time I cleared F23 for some reason (possibly because I hadn't cleared the Hyuuga/Ise kai quest). Monthly reset restored F23. and I can't get the second crew item to clear F23 again because it's locked behind F23. Fuck this item.
Is this normal for red T or did I get super lucky? I always thought it was scratch damage galore.
And I spent the entire day farming 4-2 for Hyuuga without any luck. She didn't drop until I cleared 2-5 today.
>I'm going to vomit blood if I have to grind another Zero to max again.
Just stick one zero into your cvl and do 1-5 monthly and weekly. I didn't even grind them specifically at 1-1.
Tell your fairies to git gud.
Never mind, this is what red T looks like. Whoever recommended not to take Saiun is a fucking retard.
I checked up on some nip sites and others have the same issue as you too. I suggest you clear all quests available to you in the meantime and wait for tomorrow
Either the weekly reset fixes shit, or the devs take note and fix stuff. They fix things really quickly and are responsive to nip-online stuff, like zuikaku-sprites, random sinkings etc.
No shit, this is why I bring 5BB 1CV for final form.
You really think hankousen will be any different when your CA just scratches the boss or Ru? It is more about composition rather than engagement form.
Maybe I'm just lucky but I've had Mutsu and Nagato completely destroy the boss three months in a row now. All my other ships do relatively low damage but Nagato and Mutsu have always done enough damage to one shot the boss in yasen.
Do people actually do this?
If you survive the night battle, you survive the boss. Strangely enough, she is not annoying in this map as she is on others.
But it always feels good to finish this cancerous map every time.
She's just Isokaze with glasses. Do you hate Isokaze too?
Choukai should always be smug.
That wasn't cheating, just a temporary fix to devs' stupidity. They decided to make pvp update in real time and not in 5 minute intervals or just let you fight whatever there was when you clicked.
But I want more honor student, specifically for the porn. Kasumi is not built for porn.
But she's so cute. Easily top 5 Abyss girls.
I just got my Maya and Choukai both to Kai 2 yesterday. A cutest CAs in a sexiest uniform
Nigga, are you even try?
Better than the monkeys drawn by Konishi
What the fuck is this shit? 50%? Are you fucking kidding me? I know the damn counter is not wrong because I was counting them too, so it's definitely above 40 transports killed so far.
There is no need to be upset, the Takaos aren't even drawn by Konishi.
Kumano and Suzuya are the cutest CA to be honest and ABKM is the cutest cruiser.
Funny, I just had the same bug. I just cleared the quest and the KCV counter shows 56/50.
I wonder if KCV can actually count what you kill, or if it just assume that you cleared the node and thus over-estimates the count.
Done at last.
Seems like empty quest log will not be possible anymore. There is no way I am trading my fairy for a 9/1/2/1 plane or make an inferior dive bomber.
Time to put those two BP to good use.
Kinugasa's and Aoba's original art was shit tier so I never grew fond of them. Their Kai art is much improved and I feel they are rather cute, but better than MayaChoukaiK2? No way.
Okay, how the fuck is it possible to take a shitty fleet and survive getting torpedoed by double Chi flagship, then fight a night battle against angry Ri, then get shot at by 3 BBs in two shelling phases and still get an S rank?
You wouldn't be saying a damn thing if there was a Mutsuki there.
Fubuki is the only ship that actually performed. She made it to the night battle and sunk a Ru. If everything else was even as good as her that S rank would be mine.
Damaged Maya Kai Ni is the cutest! Her expression reminds me of my favourite rape doujins!
I don't get why some people don't like this dive bomber. It's way better than the regular T62 that was already a nice for the flexibility of your fleet. If you don't upgrade it, you get something that's very slightly better than a regular Reppu.
Seriously what the fuck is up with you horrible people.
I just cleared the quest a few hours ago in one attempt AGAIN.
I was even using Kagerous + Myoukou and Ooyodo.
I only got a chuuha from Ri cut in and that's it.
I got confused since I don't use them ever. I was thinking of Kinugasa's K2 art and I for some reason thought Aoba had a similar upgrade to her art. Either way, the Mayas are superior.
Found your problem.
Unlike green plane, T62 loses planes during AACI, air phase and combat phase.
After the update it is better to just stuff a reppuu at RJ 3slot since there is no plane loss for small slot if you want to make up for a small AS deficit.
All this talk about bm7 and I suddenly got a second Taigei off 2-5.
Does anyone keep one as a submarine tender after finishing the expedition quests?
Bismarck is queen of escort fleet BBs. Unless you want to be funny with Haruna gun cut ins you will never use anybody else in escort fleet BB position once you get her. You need two though so beware.
KRSM is better for normal nodes and easy maps, but terrible for night-battle boss killing
