I did it. I'm really not sure whether I want to turn that Iwai T52 into a FB, however. Is there really any advantage in that type of plane? The T62 have never really performed well for me even after the plane rank system was implemented.
anon's family at thanksgiving dinner:
"hey where's anon?"
"hes been playing that stupid moe browser game in the bathroom, something about the chinese air force"
"what a loser hahahaha"
(yell from bathroom across the house, barely audible)
"FUCKING COMPASS FAIRY SUCK A FUCKING DICK"
WHAT THE FUCK.
I equipped max level type 52 skilled fighter on shoukaku k2 as secretary, then scrapped type 52 c 601, both of them unlocked. Had the quest active.
BUT THE FUCKING QUEST IS NOT COMPLETED. What the FUCK???
translated as "aircraft carrier" not zuikaku.
FUCK ME. i shouldve actually read the japanese instead of relying on kcv.
Have fun using a blueprint on another Unryuu class for the plane faggot
>I will never see this every morning when I wake up
>using shitty KCV port
My fucking sides.
>Only needed one attempt for 5-1 monthly this month
Life's good man
>bringing zuiuns to 5-1 monthly
It takes a special kind of retard for this.
I have excess resources. I'd rather do overkill rather than some chance of more attempt.
>not having a single kusou class for air parity
Not necessary. Though superiority will be good when the enemy doesn't have carrier. ne CAV is enough for that.
>Nowonder you are used to failing. 1attempt is the norm.
You are stupid. Fails are normally either because of the compass or because you can't kill the trollsub at the boss node.
So many things can go wrong with them there.
>missing a round of BBV and possibly CAV attacks can completely doom you in Red T and hankousen
>if yuubari is chuuha and needs two attacks it's ogre
And why melon over Ooyodo?
What's the problem?
You give both the Nagatos 51cm so they always go first. The kusou class will have same range with your 2CAV and your 23slot zuin model12 will survive till the boss giving you air parity to prevent double attack on all nodes. I ran it this month and only lost 12planes.
Been a while since I last saw a full married fleet. I guess today will not be that day.
>he doesn't take Zuiun
Holy shit, you retards. One try.
>not even a scratch for 1-4 monthly
Life's good man
Shigure already had that scratch when we started the sortie.
Kagafags still clinging to past glory. It is funny to see how deluded they are. Their tears would be delicious with the introduction of jets.
Small slots now go into small slot and big slots carry torp bombers. Reppuu mules is a thing of the past considering how carrier can 1shot Ru BB consistently now.
Kagafags are still living in the dinosaur age.
Scrap them and leave maybe 14. The bulges are useless for most uncreative people, but they are useful on high luck CAs for events. You can also save them for quests that have you in air denial like 5-1 Mikawa quest.
>implying people don't look at numbers when picking Kinugasa
Cheapest consumption means cheaper sorties.
None of my CAs are married yet, I'm levelling them all together. They're all stuck in their 80s now.
Going to be hell on my wallet when they all reach level 99 together.
You know you could just like and use everyone instead of picking a side and flinging shit at the other side just because.
You guys make it sound as if great injustice and bias is being done to you just because your right hand is more skilled at doing things as compared to your left hand.
Or that your left eye is more fucked than your right for those with myopia.
This applies to all the other CL/DD/BB/CA teams as well.
TIL zui out performs even as reppu carrier because of slot magic.
all these planes are planes obtained without ranking.
You don't need them anymore when reinforcement item has been implemented, and using FCF is a terrible idea for those who sparkle their CF like me since it just resets your ships' morale back to normal, plus one less CV(L) to maim the escorts means slightly less good RNG roll.
>you can still have a BB attack first with AP cut-in in 2nd shelling phase.
Carries can hit as hard as BB now. Why would you waste slot like that? Reppuu mule is a relic of the past.
Suijou so the main fleet can attack first. In suijou you get to equip less planes but you still need the fighter power so that means less bombers. So you can't have the carriers hit as hard as you want. Besides losing ranks to enemy AACI is a thing.
Fuck reppuu mules in kidou though.
>You don't need them anymore when reinforcement item has been implemented
While your other arguments are sound, this is terribly stupid. Just compare how often you might use FCF to how many repairs items you get on average between each event. Also, we didn't get nearly enough reinforcement to ensure everyone gets one.
Some bosses and maps are not carrier friendly (full of tsu class, Wo Kai nodes, ...) so you can't always rely on them. AP Shell bonus fills this hole nicely.
That isn't stupidity, that is a necessity. Sure you can use FCF in pre-final, but when you're facing with AA Hime in your last dance, you have to bring everything you've got to take her down. Every single ship must work together as a team, and being a reppuu mule holding a FCF is a bottleneck AND taking out two of your ships in the battle is considered suicidal.
>we didn't get nearly enough reinforcement to ensure everyone gets one
The power of money says otherwise. 500 yen is cheap.
Summer E6 & E7 isn't carrier friendly at all and I still brought 4carriers to both map.
Bauxite loss is irrelevant since it is the only place where you would use them unless you are still stuck in LSC hell.
Well, some people did clear the AA Hime hard last dance this way though. But beside incredibly lucky anecdotal evidence. You may consider 500Y cheap -and I don't really disagree- but you're looking at much more for all your ships. You said FCF were not needed, so do you plan to reinforce every ship ? Considering ship locking and all, it's more like a couple dozen 500Y. Much less cheap. You also have to provide damecons. I've been playing since more than 2 years and have about 15 - goddess included. That's probably about the number of times I use FCF in CF-Heavy events.
Of course with the assumption you have unlimited fund, no event is ever a problem, just buy res, buckets, screw and all. But that's not an assumption I feel ready to do.
Let me put it this way, when I used it for my fleet except for the flagships and Bisko, Wo stopped taiha my ship suddenly and cleared it in one scoop. It might be just pure luck, but it was my good luck charm after all those failed runs. I don't really care about wasting money since my pride is on the line here.
November more like no luck for monthlies
Only retards care about costing less when in reality you only level up completely useless ships. It's better to level up DDs on 2-2 while finishing the transport quests significantly faster which still happens at insignificant cost. Or whole fleet on 5-4.
by "costing less" I meant "having actual resource gain" which is something I like to do before events. Though I can understand leveling your ships is of benefit too.
There is. Doing same thing all the time is mind numbingly boring. The only "interesting" things that can possibly happen on Orel are going to boss six times in row while hunting transports or getting C ranks at boss with Bd7 active.
You know, some people want to play the game and have fun with it. I have no idea how can drones like you continue on, knowing only three maps, 2-3, 3-2 and 4-3.
There's no reason to do Orel when your Ro is 90+ and your DDs aren't at that level yet.
If were going to go on the topic of fun, to each their own I guess.
But it's not just three maps though, it's :
1-4, 1-5, 1-6, 2-1, 2-3, 2-5, 3-2, 3-3, 3-5, 4-2, 4-5, 5-1, 5-2, 5-5. That's enough not to be bored for me, at least - and I might even forget one or two.
My hot new 2-2 50 transport strat is Taihou + 1SS. Stack blues on Taihou and keep her as flag to maintain max morale, swap out the SS for repairs/fatigue, bucket either as needed.
Finished it this week in 2 hours and spent less than 10 buckets.
Akizuki should be coming soon since the rest of her class is being added and making her not so unique. For Eugen, you're going to have to wait until she's a limited time drop in next year's Oktoberfest mini-event.
I want to NTR Taitei-chan.
They didn't take pictures of her damaged clothes if she has a set but there is her damage face.
It's fine, here's your consolation shirei
Seriously, FUCK YOU, RNG-sama! I'm going to get that whale!!!
Can't post the cover to the sequel, so have something else
>implying hes not talking with Jiji about lolis all day everyday
Why do people do this shit? Just remodel her.
They're all remodeled you dumbass. You see the little diamond in the bottom right corner of all the cards?
As for the actual point, anyone who doesn't remodel their ships who keep the same art when you remodel them are just autistic. There is no other real reason. The ones who don't remodel to Kai Ni CAN be acceptable if they don't like the art, but usually they're just autistic too.
>The ones who don't remodel to Kai Ni CAN be acceptable if they don't like the art, but usually they're just autistic too.
To be fair Murakumo and Hatsuharu kai 2 are complete trash.
>not having any 20inch guns
What's the point if you don't upgrade them?
>not maxed T1 AP Shell
Jokes aside, I fell for the appeal of upgrading 51cm, but I only did one each for free +1 firepower. I'll get back at them when I'll have 9~10 naziguns and pastaguns.
Remodels above level 80 are cancer. I like to keep the ships in the 90s to be a select group of individuals who made their way up there through many battles they earned and not two bitches I power leveled in 5-4.
Oh piss off. It takes no effort to powerlevel carriers. In fact I got Shoukaku and Zuikaku to 90 by having them take passive experience while I leveled other ships in 4-3, I didn't even have to work on it at all.
>select group of individuals who made their way up there through many battles they earned
Keep your autism in check bud.
You sound like a speshul snowflake attention whore.
>Look at me guys! I totally hate these two ships but I'm going to level them anyway because I don't have the option of not doing so! And then complain because I'm so special and I only use ships I like except I don't because they totally force me to!
You spend time and resources for the ships you like, throughout many battles - they earned it.
You spend time and resources for the ships you like, throughout many battles - and did it quickly because K2 incoming - they didn't earn it.
So their merit is based on your intention? Must be a great mood in your base, TTK.
Let me guess, level 40, comes with 4 shinden kai ni jet remodel torpedo and dive fighter/bomber hybrids, she comes with built-in catapult, can attack at taiha, has 150 firepower, can attack at night, 130 armor and has a unique plane cut-in mechanic that instantly disables 3-6 abyssals.
Nagara turned level 50 few sorties ago, and she started at level 25. I've yet to see the boss node even once. This is hell, killing Negaduki on hard was easier then this for me.
Flag Rai 2x T4 sonar 1xT3 depth charge
bongous 2xbisko gun AP FuMO each.
Lady&Den 2x duki gun T13K each
bongos 2x46cm triplets 2xT32
RJ/Zuihou 2xred plane 2xT32
Poi/Ayanami 2xduki gun T22 K4.
Every month since the update.
It's not her fault that her Onee-sama will always be my number one.
Yamashiro is love, Yamashiro is life.
I don't even want to remodel her. I don't really like her after I decided to keep Hyuuga.
Sorry. I'm not compatible with her voice.
For the fella who had quest issues. Fix is coming within a few hours
I'm not retarded.
Not even statfag, maxing luck on everyone who's not Bisko is simply fucking retarded. He's never going to use that luck, he just wasted shitload of resources for nothing.
Why are you so mad about the way he plays the game? It's his resources and he feed the girl he loved. There nothing wrong with that. Or perhaps are you jealous that you can't afford to waste resources like that?
I don't really have blueprints at the moment.
Finally got her. A cutest useless ship!
>It's your duty to make your waifu the strongest she can be.
Step up senpai.
Good, now get 2 more for the complete Hogei triangle.
Help /jp/ my first level 99 is going to be a submersible torpedo slut. I can't marry her because she isn't pure after being violated after all these months of Orel.
Should I just let it happen /jp/ and then not marry my first 99?
It happened the samet hing with me, she was my first lsc craft, I really liked her, but the low luck placebo wasnt a lie, she always exploded, I fed her a couple of Maruyus and it never happened again. Somehow my Taihou never suffered something like this, maybe my snail was cursed, who knows.
No one's forcing you to get the medal. The introduction of difficulty selection means we shouldn't have to sleepwalk through 3/4ths of a year's events to do something noteworthy. I wouldn't imagine it to be as hard as the last one, but most of this thread was over with Operation Kon in a day.
Not him but here.
For E-7 solely it was about 50k.
A hundred thousand might be safe but 300k is pretty much overkill. You should probably improve your fleet and equipment if you had to use that much.
To be fair I only won by luck with the other two Himes still alive.
E6->E7 took me around 10k-20k resources.
Most of my resources were used for Mizuho, Umikaze and Kazagumo.
Mizuho alone cost me around 50k.
I spent well over 200k on E-7. With an optimal fleet set up and proper equipment. When I finally got the kill, it was in the last hour of the event with 5 ships up for night battle. Only killed one before nailing Negazuki. RNG is quite the amazing thing.
>For E-7 solely it was about 50k.
Then you didn't clear the whole event with only 50k resources spent
>more than 50k spent
You fail, but I'll give you a credit for clearing the last dance in two attempts.
It is. Last summer I spent literally <1k on the last dance, every single event after that has been a small bit of hell because fuck me. Except last event, that one was hell itself.
Yeah I actually could see that happening.
I shouldn't have won. The way it was going, I was actually extremely certain that I'd lose everything and still not clear it.
It wasn't just needing a slightly better roll or tilt in RNG but pure undiluted hopelessness/helplessness.
Only won because I saw people depending on megami and tried it on Isokaze(who I was going to marry 'after the war'). Amazingly Kitanda only sunk her in Yasen and she immediately retaliated back at her despite the other targets, ending my 72ish hour nightmare.
I hear people claim double Yamatos with proper upgrades have a way easier time to the point of being able to sink AAHime in day though, that's what I was thinking when I said improvement of fleet.
Too bad I still don't have Musashi despite spending about 300k and 700+ dev kits.
Sure, I mean I wasn't the one talking about 50k. That's quite dangerous. But 300k is overkill.
Just got this girl, is she used for anything?
Some quests involving composition and expedition.
Alternatively she has the best kimonos in the game at first and second remodel.
Keep her, she's the only submarine tender in the game currently I believe.
Eh, Im not really sure, I didnt even hesiate using a blueprint back in her release date. The smart thing would be keep the first one as base, and get an extra one if you like her and upgrade one of them, it depends on your priorities and how much blueprints you have.
