    Early next month, KanColle will go through the Winter 2017 Event Limited-time Operation. The scale of the next Event will be relatively Small scale. Veteran Admirals will be able to choose their Difficulties. The highest difficulty of the Event, Hard mode is a very difficult strategy. Depending on your schedule and availability, please prepare accordingly!

    来月前半には、「艦これ」冬イベント2017:期間限定海域を展開予定です。冬イベントの作戦展開規模は、比較的小規模となる予定です。歴戦の提督方は作戦難易度の選択が可能です。最難関となる「甲」作戦は高攻略難易度です。それぞれの参加予定に合わせて、戦備拡充をお願い致します!

    Currently KanColle Development Team is under preparation for the release of the limited-time Operation of Winter 2017 Event. The Start date will be from around early half of next month February.

    JP

    [For those who are joining an event operation for the first time] All admirals will be able to participate in the Easy mode.

    JP

    [For those who are joining an event operation for the first time] Participating in an event operation will require fleet depth. Stocking resources, materials and equipment are also equally important. In case that you feel that your preparation lacking, it is critical that you do not jump headlong into the event, but instead try to reinforce those caveats on regular maps.

    【初めて期間限定海域に挑戦される提督方へ】 期間限定海域への作戦参加は艦隊戦力の充実と、艦娘だけでなく装備や資源、資材などの蓄積も重要です。まだ、戦備が不十分な場合は、すぐにイベント海域に突入せず、通常海域で艦隊戦力を充実させ、そして資源等の兵站を整えることも大切です。 #艦これ

    JP

    [For admirals who are planning to play Hard or Normal mode] Winter 2017 Event will require you to divide up your forces into two in case you decide to play on Hard or Normal mode between the main “Operation Fleet” for Operation “Hikari” and “Maritime Escort Fleet” for Ogasawara Islands.

    【「甲」または「乙」作戦で挑戦予定の提督方へ】 本冬イベント2017:期間限定海域の各作戦において、【甲】または【乙】作戦を選択予定の提督方は、艦隊戦力を「光」作戦の主力「作戦部隊」と、小笠原諸島方面への「海上護衛部隊」、二方面への戦力配分が必要です。 #艦これ

    JP

    [For admirals who are planning to play Hard or Normal mode] For the “Extend Operation” of this event, having multiple of Carrier-based reconnaissance plane “Saiun” will be necessary.

    【「甲」または「乙」作戦で挑戦予定の提督方へ】 本冬イベント2017:期間限定海域の「後段作戦」では、【甲】または【乙】作戦を選択予定の提督方は、複数の艦上偵察機「彩雲」の準備が必要です。 ※「前段作戦」では必要ありません。 ※【丙】作戦では「九七式艦攻」で大丈夫です。 #艦これ

    JP

    Maintenance Status: Maintenance has entered the final phase. Currently, all KanColle servers are undergoing the final sequence of the maintenance and update process. If there is no major issue, the servers will be reopened by 21:30. Please hold for a bit longer.

    メンテナンス状況:メンテナンス最終段階を作業中です。 現在「艦これ」稼働全サーバ群は、メンテナンス&アップデート作業の最終シークエンスを進めています。大きな問題がなければ、【21:30】より各サーバ群の再開放を開始できる見込みです。もう少々お待ちいただけますと幸いです。 #艦これ

    JP

    Following this maintenance, the Initial Operations of the Winter 2017 Event, E-1: Preparation for Operation Hikari and E-2: Strengthening the Patrol Line in Ogasawara Islands will be implemented.

    この後のメンテナンス完了を以て、冬イベント2017:期間限定海域【偵察戦力緊急展開!「光」作戦】前段作戦、 第一作戦海域:「光」作戦準備 第ニ作戦海域:小笠原諸島哨戒線強化 を作戦開始予定です。 #艦これ

    JP

    For those admirals who complete E-2, Kamikaze-class destroyer "Matsukaze" will be joining you. Also, by completing both initial operation maps, you will be able to enter the "Extended Operations" which will be opened up starting evening tomorrow.

    【第ニ作戦海域:小笠原諸島哨戒線強化】を見事成功させた提督方の艦隊には、神風型駆逐艦「松風」が合流致します。また、同「前段作戦」第一作戦海域、第二作戦海域の作戦を成功させることで、明日夕方以降開放される「後段作戦」の攻略が可能となります。 #艦これ

    JP

    Also, following today's maintenance, Valentine's Day mode will be implmented for destroyers "Oboro", "Takanami", "Minazuki" in addition to other kanmusus that already have them.

      On the other hand, we havent seen a large scale event for a while so expect spring 17 is gonna be insane like spring 16 once again :P

    • Technically last event was practically equivalent to a large-scale event due to E-4 being separated into two parts and E-5 being separated into 2~3 parts (2 if you didn't do debuff, 3 if you went doing debuff along with opening the secret route)

      inb4 we have something like this:

      Map 1:

      • Transport Task Force VS Abyssal Submarine Fleet

      Map 2:

      • Phase 1 - Single Fleet VS Supply Depot Princess again.
      • Phase 2 - Single Fleet VS Combined Fleet Darth Teste again.

      Map 3:

      • Phase 1 - Transport Task Force to Establish Airbase with CA Hime as boss.
      • Phase 2 - Search and Destroy Enemy Combined (convoy) Fleet with CL Hime as boss.
      • Phase 3 - CTF VS CV Hime as advance guard to unlock boss route.
      • Phase 4 - STF VS Abyssal Surface Task Force with full Hime fleet.
        • The Map 3 has their own boss gauge for each phases.

      Map 4 (I really hope they won't do this...):

      • Air Defense Princess is back with Suzutsuki as hostage and CV Hime as bodyguards. And her only weakness is jet bombers.

    • Hard mode is bullshit one way or another. Only thing I can pray is that it be easy like last year where All-hard was very much doable for majority of people.

      This is a chance for a lot of people to obtain their first Class-A medal... as long as Devs don't pull off any weird shit. 

      And no, they don't really listen to us except maybe the Japanese players I think.

      The only time when PT Imp Packs were nightmares is only during Fall 2015. They reappeared in Winter and Spring 2016 but they couldn't even harm a fly, so I don't think they would be difficult in Winter 2017 either.

      I will agree with you on that part. I don't have my A class yet cause Im too focused on work and have little to no time in playing. My chance to get my first a class in the present is very high now considering I have a lot of high levelled ships to use. But all of that will be wasted if the Devs will make some troll move like what you posted earlier Shinhwalee.

      But with or without the troll move, I still look forward for this event. Good luck and have fun everyone!! Prepare and make your decisions count. (^_^  )

    • Strictly 3 maps ? Heh, we know nothing yet.

      That said, they clearly showed us the intent to make maps that aren't as straightforward as before with the bad side of this being a shitload of semi-HIDDEN requirements that are very hard to define in a short amount of time.

      I can't wait to see what kind of things they can add to the table, like every event. I must say however, it makes me feel kinda sick to see everything they tried to be qualifed as "shit" or "trolling" or anything that can be understood pejoratively. It's been the tone of the game since long ago. (I give you that, Spring 16 was the offender.)

      Yup, it's "relatively small scale", likewise, they can just go "medium scale" if it's 4 maps.

      Small = 3 maps

      Medium = 4 maps

      Relatively small = 3 maps plus some bullshits like event-related quests, TP bars, and gimmicks that makes it de-facto 3.5 maps or 4 maps.

      I have an even better idea. After defeating the enemy Combined Fleet in the previous map, both the enemy main and escort fleet flagship had taken significant damage and had to retreat to their stronghold where they have stronger flunkies and a Repair Princess.

      One start point for CTF and another for STF, each leading to their own bosses. Each boss have 5 kill's worth of HP gauge, but they start at 60% full, so you only need 3 kills... except that when you reduce the boss gauge of one boss, the other boss gains an equal amount of health, adjusted for max HP difference.

      State Boss A Boss B
      Base HP 600 HP 500 HP
      Initial Gauge 1800/3000 HP 1500/2500 HP
      Failed First Kill 1284/3000 HP -516 1930/2500 HP +430
      Boss A Final Kill 0284/3000 HP -1000 2500/2500 HP +570
      Switch to Boss B without clearing Boss A 2684/3000 HP +2400 0500/2500 HP -2000

      By the time you're in Last Dance for one boss, the other will be in full health, and vice versa.
      Clear one, and the other can't regenerate health anymore.

      or just take out the Repair Anchorage Princess and prevent their health from regenerating altogether.

      Keep stating such outdated facts would make others assume that you had been living under a rock in the last few months.

      Jet bombers (well, jet-powered fighter-bombers at least) and the Ne Type Engine is made available as quest rewards after the Fall 2016 Event, so veteran Admirals would've at least gotten their hands on Kikka Kai by now.

      ...but yeah, having to pray for jet bombers like that isn't fun. It would've be much better if her armor is debuffed every time the jet bombers land a hit on the Air Defense Princess, and the debuff is effective immediately after the hit. That means she'll shrug off every attack at first... then Zuikaku K2A attacked Air Defense Princess with jet bombers equipped during shelling, and BAM, instant chuuha. Then the APCI and other attacks after this would deal real damage on her.

    • Winter 2017 Event is speculated to be based off Ulithi Atoll (Operation Arashi)

      Winter 2017 Event is highly speculated to be based on Ulithi Atoll , majorly due to the fact Zuiun (631 Air Group), the December 2016 Ranking Reward was revealed to be the Equipment based on the Winter 2017 Event. 

      NOTE: The Devs has stated on DMM Forums that Winter 2017 Event is NOT based off Panama Canal.

      Speculated Historical Branching Rule

      I-401 (Shioi)

      In late June 1945, the Japanese aircraft-launching super submarines I-400 and I-401 were diverted from their planned attack on the Panama Canal to attack Ulithi Atoll. However, their mission was interrupted by the destruction of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, followed by the Japanese surrender.

      Iowa

      Was stationed at Ultihi Atoll


      Other Notes

      • Another interesting point is that Ultihi Atoll was able to hold 700 USN Vessels (...)
      • It's possible that the Boss of the Event will be an Installation-type.

      Prepare your WG42s and Type 3 Shells Admirals! (Unsure if Daihatsu tanks will be needed as well)

      Definitely some sort of map branching with subs will be in it. I don't think the devs like subcheesing too much though - like the patch last time, so i don't think it'll be in the map. Right now i have no idea where speed comes in though - maybe to dodge night CI by imps or something or branching rules.

      I'm not sure about that though, Hatakaze happened to be sunk during winter (15 January 1945), so that voice line may just be a historical reference.

      Instead I have my own reason to believe that Hatakaze won't come, it's simple, there will most likely to be only 3 new ships, and if two of them are Kamaikaze-class the whole event will be seriously worthless.

      • Kamikaze-class is a pre-war era DD and the devs still decide to put more and more.
      • Matsu-class is a late-war DD but the devs give only a hint yet.
      • There are many IJN ship classes/types from pre-war to late-war era left until today.

      I think the devs' points of putting some ships up in the game for now are all about keeping game pace to run in not so fast speed (but some people still said it is too slow for them anyway) and give an enough time for the newcoming people to cope up with the average guys.

      And... for now, there is no either pre-war or late-war event matter. It is all about what-left or what-if event.

      Nah, I don't think the devs care about the year of those historical battles and ships.

      OP Arashi is literally the last day of WWII (operation ceased 16 Aug 1945, one day AFTER Japan surrenders), we even have OP Crossroads (that's one year after than the whole damn war ended). We are already all the way into "late-war".

      Besides, Katsuragi was completed even later than Matsu, so the historical completion date really isn't the issue here.

      Operation HIKARI was carried out by I-13 and I-14, and E-3 is not necessarily Operation ARASHI.

        Loading editor
    • What I guessed right: It will be an submarine-based operation around Ulithi Atoll.

      What I guessed wrong: It is HiKARI OP, not ARASHI OP directly.

      Sounds pretty implausible as it stands now, since that entails a complete revamp of the game engine.

      Leave the T/L to me.

      The final area of Winter 2017 Event "Emergence Deployment of Recon Forces! Operation HIKARI" will feature a new type of submarine who was constructed as a substitute for the Sentoku (I-400 class) class submarine aircraft carrier and was able to carry Seirans as the new ship girl. Please look forward to this girl who successfully carried out OP HIKARI against the odds.


      OP HIKARI was carried out by I-13 and I-14, I-13 went missing so the only one who succeeded was I-14.

    • Yay, we already have a flagship cruiser like Ooyodo, so why not a (used to be) flagship submarine?

      Don't expect much like I-400-class but she might have Seiran as her stock equipment in Kai form like Shioi. :3

      I am putting my bet on Iyo. It sounds cuter compared to Isshi. I doubt it will be "Hito" as the previous two ships with "1" in their name are both "i". Although Ishi is plausible because "I-401" became "shi-o-i". But it doesn't sound cute.

      I think it'll be Iyo as well, because y'know, Iyooooooonnn or something like that (for the "cute" factor obviously)

      But personally i prefer Isshi (or just make it Isshin). It sounds more like a proper Japanese name, instead of focusing on the "cute" part. Also with the -shin, it'll goes well with the fact that she's a modified Type A subs...

      If anything I expect Suzutsuki to be the reward for Spring event, as we've been having a new Akizuki class every year now since 2014 in different seasons every time and spring is the only one that's left.

    • Some details about Winter 2017 as given during an interview of Tanaka... (rough translation)

      http://kancolle.doorblog.jp/archives/50615424.html

      - Winter 2017 will have 3 maps total. Operations follow the attack on Ulithi (where enemy aircraft carriers have gathered), followed by Operation Hikari (as per historical operations).

      - Divergent: The next operation is the strengthening of patrols around Nanao Bay, Chichijima and Ogasawara islands.

      - Matsukaze confirmed reward for early maps

      - New SS equipment

      - A pair of submarines!? (Not only I-14, but also I-13 may be implemented.)


      I'll leave the more detailed translation to your usual translators.

    • Detailed Translation from the Interview with Tanaka from March 2017 Comptiq Issue

      Further details of the Event has been released out by the new Comptiq March 2017 Magazine Source: http://kancolle.doorblog.jp/archives/50615424.html

      • The winter event will be 3 Maps Only.
      • The Main Operation of the event is Operation Hikari.
      • It involves a transport operation performed by the I-class submarines to Truk Island.
      • It also involves a reconnaissance mission before launching an attack on the enemy's Ulithi Atoll Base.
      • The follow-up is the Operation Arashi, but it will be unfolded differently in Kancolle.
        • E-3 will give a new equipment for submarines and I-14 will be implemented in the last map
      • The Operation preparation near Nanao-kita Bay, strengthering your defense and patrol near Chichijima, Ogasawara Island will be the motif before the Main Operation.
      • It seems the Operation that involves Matsukaze will be the very first map (?)
      • I-13 is also confirmed to be implemented together with I-14.

      New Ships Overall:

      • Matsukaze: E-2 Reward
      • I-14: E-3 Reward (?)
      • I-13: DROP
        Loading editor
    • Well...that's interesting. An event with mainly submarine rewards and as the last reward. With only subs as rewards I doubt it'll be too difficult, but I guess it's a good thing that I prepare my ASW gears.

    • The Kancolle doorblog made things sound a bit confusing (I am not sure if this guy even put things in order chronologically) but the main motif of the operation hikari is a transport operation performed by the I-class submarines to Truk Island, and then it tells me The Operation preparation near Nanao-kita Bay, strengthering your defense and patrol near Chichijima, Ogasawara Island will be the motif "before the Main Operation", and that the operation that had involved Matsukaze would be the first map.

        Loading editor
    • But Tanaka told in the interview there are 3 maps in this event, so...

      • That patrol OP is the first map.
      • Then the main OP is Hikari, second map, which has 2 parts (Tanaka's mapping method again).
      • And the last (EO) map is Arashi. (Yes, I think this map will have 2 parts also. :P)

      The first 2 maps are not so looking nervous now (take it easy plz.) but... that EO map is the another side. Pacman

      In summary, Trollanaka hinted us there will be 3x2 = 6 maps at maximum. Happy Tanaka

    • According to Comptiq March 2017, there will be 3 maps, and there are hints of I-13 coming along with I-14.

      E-1 seems to be an ASW map around Japanese territorial waters, E-2 seems to be OP HIKARI, and E-3 will be something other than OP ARASHI, because "in KC we still have a decent fleet, unlike the historical IJN in 1945".

    • The reversing map progression of E-2 seems to be a bug, I didn't encounter it myself, so it is possible that this bug has been fixed.

      However, there are more of them.... currently Satsuki K2 and Kinu K2 can use the machineguns of their adjacent ships to trigger an AACI. This is problematic because they may override other more powerful APIs.
