Every month, players can obtain a medal for depleting the health bar of most (but not all) extra operation maps. Currently 1-5, 2-5, 3-5, 4-5, 5-5 and 6-5 provide a medal upon depleting their health bar, giving 6 medals in total if all are cleared within the month. The bars reset to full at 23:59JST of the last day of each month, allowing for medals to be obtained again.
Starting from the Spring 2014 event, medals are rewarded for the completion of some event maps. Note that not all event maps will reward a medal upon completion, and some maps may require clearing on a harder difficulty to obtain one, while some maps may even reward two medals for clearing on a harder difficulty.
Blueprints are needed by some ships in order to remodel. Ships that require Blueprints to remodel are usually very strong, comes with rare equipment or have their own special uses which differentiates them from the other ships.
As of 12th September 2017, there are 28 remodels which require a blueprint, thus requiring 112 medals in total.
List of ships requiring Blueprints for remodelingEdit
The priority score is rated on the following points:
What are the advantages you get in return for using the blueprint? Is she actually strong, do you get access to strong equipment, or is it both?
How often can she be used? If she cannot be used in most maps, can she make a huge impact in maps where she can be used?
Does her remodel come with disadvantages?
Keep in mind that the priorities might change depending on how far you are, what kind of ships you have available and what your current needs are, so keep the priorities only as rough guidelines. In case of times where the events are starting soon, consider saving your blueprint until you know what you actually need during the event.
While getting high priority ships are encouraged, do not recklessly pursue them in a way which will affect your fleet negatively and plan things out before committing yourself to something.
Note: The priority is listed from top to bottom, including those that are placed in the same category (e.g. Suzuya is ranked higher than Yura). However, the prioritization of ships in the same category is of less importance and you are free to disregard it and treat them all as equal priority if you wish.
Starting from the Winter 2015 event, the First Class Medal (Also known as the Class A Medal) is rewarded to players who have cleared the final map of the event on 甲 (Hard) difficulty. While this medal is held in the inventory, it is shown to others when they see your profile in ranking, along with the amount the player is carrying.
First-Class medals cannot be exchanged for the same rewards as a regular medal, but can be exchanged for all of the following:
10 Improvement Materials
10 Development Materials
10 Large Furniture Boxes
However, keep in mind that if the medal is used/consumed, the medal marker on the profile will disappear. Given its rarity, players may prefer to keep it instead.
