Didnt know you are kinda lazy, unlike 3 years ago where you lectured me lots of stuffs and were pretty active too. Now I am at the point where I can rival with others but its just sad that you cant keep it up.
Well, three years ago was different. No bullshit enemies and all...although what three years ago had was still pretty much bullshit.
I already had it after I cleared Fall 2014 (Prinz Eugen and Akizuki's debut); it's not that until Winter 2015 that this shit hammered the fact that, "No, you can't go half-assed with 'RNG-up-to-eleven mode', top tier ships or bust."
Spring 2015 even laughed at my face. "Nononono, you still don't have those top tier ships or mad improved guns, fuck you."
Also when you are a 100-slotters AND composing a fleet only of your favorites, you had to know where the limit lies.
And I really hate the feeling of helplessness everytime these ships sortied.
At least in Girls' Frontline I could move my girls-wit-guns in battle to manipulate the battle somewhat (even if I don't have pro players' mad dancing skillz).
Hey, after noticing that you are very active on most of the comment sections of this wikia, I got interested and looked at your user page. I noticed that you have been on this wikia for almost 4 years now.
When did you start playing Kancolle?
Just curious, no need to answer if you don't want to.
After Winter '15. After Spring '15. In which I failed to finish both in full "Hard". I think it was a wake up call to not be a maso with 'fleet of favoritism', so I stayed away for a good time.
Get active before Summer '15 until Summer '16, in which I burned out again.
I tried to log-in for New Year 2017 quests, but turn it off right after because I don't feel like it. The same thing happened for New Year 2018 quests, btw. RIP easy Raiden.
Spring '17, in which I returned for Taiyou in the middle of the event, had me doing four maps in nearly two weeks. I didn't have any difficulty (apart from E-2). I had no willpower to even press sortie button.
Even now, I'm still burned out.
Compared to Granblue, Kancolle is so clunky and slow. It's a wonder how I could put up with it during my active days. I'm also burned out in Granblue, but unlike Kancolle, I actually had fun (excluding not getting SSRs or wanted charas from gacha).
This is a follow up on my reply regarding your question about E-3 TP phase fleet eLOS. I post it here because I fear my reply will be buried in the comment section.
First, I apologize that I forgot that E-3 TP is combined fleet, and thus, my posted fleet setup was actually incomplete. Here is the replay of one of my E-3H TP runs. Hopefully it can give more info than my previous answer.
All in all, the required eLOS still doesn't seem to be incredibly high. Good luck with the event!
How kind of you...but sadly, I don't use KC3 Kai lol.
Not to worry, I got a rough idea how it'll be. Besides, I'm going to attempt the Class B (Med) anyway and the escort fleet must be the usual guns and radars, so what you posted before is still helpful.
And then upload the image file of the replay - the kind I posted up there. I suggest saving it to your computer first and then upload from there because directly loading it from URL sometimes does not work.
I'll take a peek tonight, but really, think about it.
though I haven't been super active the past few weeks I've caught wind of your impending retirement due to a move or something like that on top of apperent slot woes...
To help out a long standing player who's having problems ingame or RL is no big deal, not that 10 slots would change everything but I can't help but think of the time and effort put into a CVB'd crane v.s. me sitting on my ass at work fucking around with my phone for 45 minutes. I won't go hungry because I hooked someone up with 10$......
It's not something I'd offer if I wasn't absolutely willing to follow through on.
What preparation, I didn't even do something remotely close to it.
I still have like 9 Maruyus in my slot, 7 of them still unleveled. Then there is Yamato, who will ensure my fuel/ammo will reach the lowest digit when I level her along with the Maruyus (after I'm done with this weekly).
...on the other hand, I could 5-3 all those Maruyus...
And to whom those Maruyus will be used, I don't know either. Myoukou'd be the most suitable candidate, tho'.
Sadly no, I'm still waiting for info about Harukaze. She's my dream waifu and nobody knows where she drops nor is there any info about her. Until she has been sighted I don't think I can move anywhere. I'm starting to think that she isn't even coded in the event yet.
The both of us still have time, the event just started and so many people are getting tilted already.
Luckily I want Kamikaze instead of her sister. I was saved from the hassle of farming her nyahahaha.
Lol, about time, I...am not really sure. IRL be harsh and I only made it worse.
It's kind of understandable people got tilted. I got tilted. When I know E-1 is a combined fleet and contains CV Princess I was like 'Shitshitshit' and it only gets worse from there after seeing screenshots.
Eh, I rather save my sanity, thank you. For Extra Operation E-5 'cause I want the Raiden.
E-1 finished. Just now.
My fleet ate like 5300ish for both fuel and ammo. Also 2k bauxite because six bomber squadrons.
Got a sweet whale during the ordeal.
Took seven sorties:
the very first sortie ended in retreat because of BB Princess one shotting two ships to taiha (making FCF useless). I effin hate enemy battleships in double line.
five straight kills
one stupid south routing because I was trying a different approach (swapping Italia's and an escort DD's position, so Italia at escort, that DD at main). Didn't go well because after the first node, my fleet went south. Fall back after that, afraid 'cause I'll have zero fuel later. Swapped back to original setup right after it.
E-2 later few hours after I woke up. Since I don't plan on doing E-6 on harder difficulties, I can deploy both Kisaragi and Kasumi for E-2, my only two Landing Force carriers, lol.
Met 2x Nose Gun Imps and 2x Depot Princess for a total of 1460 HP dealt (1420 for normal, I'm HQ 112). Gotta say I hate this kind of thing.
Some little salt piled while at it though. Like echelon submarines hitting my ships, Ri-class in double line, torpedo from Imp in echelon formation still hits, and airstrike support just refused to come out.
I just noticed you are using SCAMP, what should I change for it and can I just use the normal landing craft? Reasons below V
RNG has never given me *cough* Nagamon *cough*(I got Arashio and Ooshio several days ago which are needed for the quest chain). So I never started the quest for their KN. RNG has hated me so much for this past one and half year.(I registered here much later). I only managed to get a bloody Akashi just 2-3 weeks before the event despite constant farm of 2-5 for her only like several months in a row. My HQ level is 102. And I have neither T89 landing craft nor the Type 2 simply because running out of improvement materials before the daihatsu can be upgraded into anything.
SCAMP for who? The cranes in E-1? Eehhh, if I didn't put the SCAMP, then I'd fill it with fighters so Unryuu can ditch that Zero M62 F/B for a true bomber.
Uhh, maybe you can try using the plain Daihatsu, see if it works vs. the Imps ('cause it does jack shit vs. Depot Princess as far as I know), and then you have to rely completely on the Type 3 wielder to kill the Depot.
Lol the only language they teach us during school years were our national language, English, mother language, and one more depending on the school (or most of the time, not at all). Mine was Japanese back then, but most of the time I slept in class so my knowledge about it sucks.
Oh and another thing. Abyssal land base sent rains of cat bombs to my base. Even swapping ships in expedition is hard without interruption, lol.
I wonder if it's related to Firefox's recent browser update, seriously this thing...
I will assemble the most mishap fleet I can choose to go to E-2 that cannot even use daihatsu and without wurfs as well.
That went better than I expected actually. I managed to sink her at night battle(once). Gonna see how much more can I push this fleet further (Fumizuki, Myoukou, Shouhou, Jintsuu, Kikuzuki Kai and Kisaragi Kai). I can use it to farm Teruzuki on node I as well ayy.
2100 fuel and 2600 ammo in two. fucking. sorties. and 1448 bauxite, 648 because I'm trying to find a good enough setup for the land base squadron, and 800 because of plane losses in combined fleet, should be lower for next sorties.
Maybe I'll sub my support CVs with CVLs for (slightly) lower cost, but the BBs cannot be subbed because CAs suck.
I just hope I don't have to retreat.
(* now that I looked at my Summer 2015 E-7 log again, that kind of cost is...normal.
PS: even with just five bombers it already ate too much bauxite ffs, I need to rethink my setup again.
The heavier fleet route is not that much different.
I still can't sink her, because there's not enough damage even when I mix a CAV/CVL and a Roma. How the fuck am I supposed to have a wurf if I never had a bloody U-511 lmao. I tried to get her at the previous events to no avail.
It's virtually impossible if not even one of your ships doesn't have an wurf or better types of daihatsu.
Okay I just screwed myself royally and now I have to do everything on easy smh.
Zist why you should not play at 6 fucking am in the morning with just 6 hours of sleep.ffffff
I unconsciously sent some of my best ships to an event map I didn't intend to because I thought it was 4-5 so I can get a BP ready since I have Choukai ready for KN..............fffffffffffffffucking fuck.wae3a3a238a2309a3ba23ba.a23a23a273a89236a2783a62378a236a23asdkjaghwj£G"H£J!"G£JHAGW£AWEHbwn3vagw3a. Sigh, everything easy it is.
No, that just allows you to put no fighters in airstrike support fleet (because Zero M62 have +4 AA) while maintaining bombing, although the damage will not be really spectacular (because its bombing stat is only 4).
This also means you can use some of your better bombers for artillery support on vanguard, or just putting it in main fleet.
Personally, if I attempt that airstrike trick, I have juuuust enough dive bomber for that, but that means leaving nothing for vanguard support expedition...
...or I could push my two duplicate Souryuus on a mad rage for Kai Ni but lol @my ammo
What do you think I am doing? Looking for easter bunnies eggs? Trying to find the golden goose? Searching for the golden fleece? Escaping the Minotaurs labyrinth?!
Ofc I am still fucking farming for her, Hibiki and Akatsuki leveled up like five fucking levels from the farming. This is just borderline mindless spammage. All I have is one fucksake and I need like 4 or something. I have a higher chance of getting Hibiki&Akatsuki&Kisaragi&Mutsuki getting to KN than me getting a second one.
JUST DO IT, DON'T LET YOUR DREAMS BE DREAMS!
Zeppeling waste of resources!?
We've found the heretic, his punishment death by fire!
She is just carrier with much worse plane count and pale complexion. She speaks nicely and I admit I like it, but that's not enough to make me pour what is essentially a default minimum LSC for a 0.24% chance to fish her out of 2000+ HP patterns full of planes that clouded the skies and railgun cannons that is guaranteed to send someone back to Davy Jones' embrace.
...heck I would say her value is less than Maruyu that has about 1.6% chance to drop at node I at E-1 Hard. Without 2000+ HP patterns, planes that clouded the skies, and railgun cannons.
I seriously couldn't take it anymore, sparkling didn't help even with an engine on her. She had 110 evasion+76 morale yet somehow managed to get taiha'd by a submarine, like what the fuck? At the previous try I even tried to sink Hatsukaze simply because she got taiha'd by nothing even with AACI all the airplanes at I.
Shits and giggles are finally over, no more cancur RNG bullshit for now. I cleared the map, and I am recovering some resources from exp only so I can try to farm for either Akitsushima/Hayasui/Unryuu/Amagi or whichever one comes first.
