      If the Comptiq cover girl is to be shown with her sisters, that means she's of the one of already implemented classes. Otherwise it wouldn't make sense: "here's new girl, along with other girls you haven't seen and won't see".

      It doesn't mean we won't get more than one DD, so those options are still technically open.

      A non-canon mental model of the fictional soviet submarine, B-67. When I searched her, she actually existed as a Zulu class soviet submarine back in the 50's

      It's an official Arpeggio art drawn by Ark Performance himself. It was drawn for the 2013 movie 'Phantom'.

      Then proceed. But I personally find both versions of Kumano and Suzuya incredibly useful. Maybe their CVL versions are a bit short of plane slots but they have very high fire power, survivavility, fast speed, and the ability to ignore subs without equiping the pitiful Re2001G.

      Also I cannot understand why having so many slots you don't want to raise even one dupe.

      And Kishinami. I'm sure it's her. When Naganami was in repairs Kishinami served as flagship of DesDiv31. This is why Naganami is in the background and Okinami and Asashimo are kinda-sorta saluting her (or making fun of her sidelocks - or both at the same time).

      On another note, Japan sure have it hard. First typhoon, now earthquake. We just need godzilla attack to round it up.

      As a fellow Spanish admiral, I would be very pleased if we get Spanish kanmusu one day... I honestly think it's very unlikely but who knows, if I had been told a year ago that we were going to have a Swedish cruiser for summer 2018, I wouldn't have believed it xDDD

      Oh, by the way. España is not the only battleship we had. The España-class were actually 3 sister ships: España, Alfonso XIII and Jaime I.

      In the previous Kurita event, you need 10 Kurita ships. If you don't have Suzu/Kuma CVL, then you'll be running generic CVLs and won't be able to run CLT in your escort. Furthermore, not having the convenience of 12 Kurita ships meant you can't retreat any of your ship during chipping runs. It's not the end of the world per se, just friggin annoying.

      I would personally keep her at CVL form until the day when I don't have enough CAV to sortie (CAV requirements seem to be rare nowadays and you can always run Zara/Pola to mule for you).

      Edit: Also, considering you're a 360 slotter, surely you have some dupes unless you're buying slots to hoard equipment.

      yes, the same rules apply to events

      a shipgirl can only sink if she enters a node while already in taiha

      the day battle and nightbattle in the same node still count as the same node (regardless of the order in witch those two are in)

      to my knowlede there have been no bugs related to ships sinking so you dont have to worry about that.

      a notable exception to ships sinking is flagships. it is impossible for a flagship to sink under any circumstances (or it has been in all previous events) witch means the 2nd fleet flagship in a combined fleet can get heavily damaged without forcing a retreat and without it being possible for her to sink. to be safe however it is advisable to wait for this to be confirmed in the upcoming event before you risk any ships

      There were nine confirmed dead and about 30 still unaccounted for last time I've checked. Mostly because of landslides triggered by quake.

      They've started up some secondary powerplants, so at least there's some power. But they provide less electricity than peak demand and with main powerplant at Atsuma damaged and Honshu interlink down some power shortages and blackouts are expected to last even more than a week. We'll see how it play out.

      To clarify, the tweet said the event will run for 3 weeks+ instead of the previously planned 2 weeks+ (whatever that alpha is) to account for the power outage in Hokkaido; so it's a minimum of 3 weeks.

      That's dreadful. These types of disasters are always worst when there are casualties, not to mention the damage to infrastructure. It really sucks that it happened, plus it puts a bit of a damper on the event. I'm surprised they only delayed the start by a day, but I suppose they can't push it back much further because of the hype around it being the first event of Phase 2 and there's the fall event on the way too.

      Cute potato falconers launching planes from their gloves are cute.

      Say, Taiyou is oftenly depicted with a Type 96 Fighter on a leash (like a pet dragonfly). Wonder if Shinyou would have some kind of familiar like that.

      Look closely at the white thread. You can see it's connected to her plane.

      It's connected to her glove, not her plane.

      Which makes sense considering you wouldn't want a plane tied to the flight deck when you're trying to launch it.

      So more pet planes like this? Yay.


      The idea of having a pet fighter on a leash flying near you has always fascinated me. It's a very minor thing that often goes unnoticed in the scheme of things, and subsequently gets treated as if it was something belonging to the normal everyday life. It obviously is not though, and the sheer fact that Taiyou is bringing around a goddamned plane on a leash, the way it contrasts with the surrounding setting (where girls live a relatively normal life off the battlefield, and planes are machines of war manned by fairies, not autononous animals), and yet how everyone considers it ordinary, they all contribute to the contradictive cute absurdness surrounding the idea. Couple it with Taiyou's sweet personality and her smol potato goodness (those soft Shibafu cheeks, hnnnnggggg), and you got a match made in heaven.

      That is definitely not Gotland, she didn't have forward guns like that.  The empty space before the superstructure makes me think it's probably Nelson, that's where her third turret is (she's got the weird 'all-three-turrets fore' design.) Also, looking at the sized-up image, it's pretty clear those are triple turrets, and Nelson's the only ship in discussion who had those.

    • I'm very curious about how Gotland is going to work.  She's a CLV.  CL. V.  We don't have any of those.  Well, I mean, we sort of do (Tama K2, Yura K2).

      Also, she's about the same speed as Nagato.  So she should be a slow cruiser.  Whoops.

      Also Nelson deserves to have jokes about how goddamn slow she is, Big 7 or not.

      The Big 7 ships have few things in common.  They have 16 inch guns, excellent armor protection and their speed is between 21 to 24 knots.  Another word, they were considered snail when it comes to speed.

      If you look closely, she's got two tripod mast 'horns' (compare to Nagato and Mutsu, the other implemented Big 7's... maybe it's just part of being a Big 7?).  Compare with the one at the back of the historical ship (kinda hard to see cause it's got a bunch of superstructure under it): http://www.naval-encyclopedia.com/ww2/UK/nelson-class-battleships

      Tripod masts were preferred by the Royal Navy in general, so it's probably symbolic of that?

      Not so!  Nagato and Mutsu were notably faster than the Nelson and Colorado classes, clocking in at a distinctly respectable 27 knots!

      (Nagato's impressive top speed was kept a deep military secret, however, publicly she was stated to have a top speed of only 24 or 25 knots, though she did sail at her full 27, without permission from the brass, when rushing supplies after the 1923 Kanto Earthquake, because she's that kind of girl)

      Nelson is going to have some "experimental functions" in development under the codename "Nelson Touch". It's unknown whether the new functions will be available this event.

      27 knots for Nagato class BB was conducted during Sea Trials for testing the absolute maximum emergency power which can be done for short period of time.  Normal designed speed is 24 knots to save wear and tear of critical parts of the machinery.

      Maximum speed is maximum speed, friend, qualifiers be damned.  The Colorados and Nelsons couldn't do 27 knots if they blew up their own boilers.  Basically no ships sailed at full steam except in combat situations, anyway.

      That's true.  27 knots was orginal propulsion back in 1920s.  When Nagato was reboilered to newer unit during 1930s reconstruction, the speed was reduced to 24.8 knots due to additional armour and reinforcement of heavier gun turrents.

      Shimada Humikane was hospitalized around August and it seems he already got discharged. He even bought the Spider-man PS4 game.

      Also, remember the 5th ship is an elder sister with an existing sister in the game. Another clue is that she was sunk by enemy actions.

      It was not like that. Nagato's speed was 26-27 knots BEFORE the modernization which took place in the 30s. That speed was a military secret, as it was the same as many battlecruisers of the Royal Navy without sacrificing that much protection. After the modernization, which raised the deck protecion, she raised her displacement in 5k tons and got anti-torpedo bulges, reducing her speed until the 24.5-25 knots you refer to.

    • That's true that adding anti-torpedo bulges to a battleship it does reduce the speed significantly.  Only way you can keep the orginal speed is to significantly upgrade more power to the propulsion system similar to Kongou class BB which reconstructed during the 1930s.

      And this is what I predicted. I don't know if could do Hard mode on these maps with 2 WG42s, 1 Ka-Mi, 1 Tankhatsu. Devs should really make recipe for WG42s especially for new players.

    • This still doesn't really make sense to me. It's not Nelson, the silhouette for her is already out. It's most likely not Gotland either, her double turrets were arranged on either side of the superstructures with 2 casement mounted guns in between. I doubt it's a Zara or Hipper class either, unless it is being drawn by a different artist. Both artists for both classes draw the turrets stood apart from each other and the second turrets are always tilted vertically. I will go out on a leg and say it's not a DD since those rarely get big riggings. You can clearly see the outline of a 2x2 turret arrangement, and the size says cruiser or DD sized guns.

      I think it could be a ship that didn't sink from enemy action. The entombed AA guardian princess is based on suzutsuki that survived the war. Just because it is an abyssal didn't mean the IRL ship was lost in action or even necessarily sunk. Same with the Richeliu abyssal.

    • Going back to a mystery gal from E-4...what makes you think that she had to be sunk by enemy actions?

      Unless something's wrong with the translation or you mean any hostile actions, it just says that it's a boss hime...and not all boss himes represented kanmusu whose ships were sunk in battle

      Saratoga wasn't, so wasn't Ark Royal (U-boot's attack was not a battle if we think in that field) and Suzutsuki also was not.

      Other examples exist but just raising this idea here so I can hear what you think.

      Its quite possible given the title, however I would also argue that Victorio Veneto might be a possibility. V .V.  was tasked to protect Genoa against Force H (our ship locking tag). 

      Maestrale was not part of the V.V. task force, however. 

      Anyway, Maestrale or Victorio Veneto are possible, with an edge for Maestrale imo. Only got to wait until wednesday to be sure.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah. I was thinking Vittorio Veneto too, as she meets the criteria. But then they would be giving two BBs in two consecutive maps (one of them FBB but still). On top of that her class already have two other implemented. That would be a little too unbalanced choice. And as a capital ship it would be strange if they didn't at least hint her for marketing angle.

      On the other hand Maestrale is named after the wind, and she was sunk (scuttled but still) in Genoa. Which, funnily enough, is mentioned in one of the four sentences of jp.wikipedia page stub on her.

      Agreed. though it is a little sad V.V. might have to wait a little longer, Maestrale is the top contender for now. Kinda of exciting to think how her battle and abyssal form will be (first Jiji abyssal?!).
