      Due to the fact implementation of Phase 2 got delayed due to natural disasters, and even "Summer 2018 Event" being delayed due to bugs from Phase 2 [Block-1] all the way up to September, the "Real Fall Event" had to be delayed to this December.

      Also the fact the schedule was tight with Phase 2 Maps -> Early Fall Event -> Saury.

      Well Nisshin is confirmed. Looking by the Ranking Rewards for August 2018, The Fletcher (Possibly Johnston cause Yukikaze) possibly included as well.

      Aside from those two, no idea because there are so many ships mentioned from multiple ships for a while and we have no idea when they will be implemented

      Examples include:

      • HMS Sheffield (Mentioned by Nelson)
      • Janus and Kelly (Mentioned by Jervis)
      • Fuyutsuki (Mentioned so many times now...)
      • Yugiri (Amagiri mentions her so many times that I feel sorry for her cause it feels weird for her to mention a character that doesn't exist yet)
      • Gangut-class Sisters

      You might be right about inside job.  One of the player sank his sub before the crash and got it back from the backup restore the next day.  I bet he won't be doing that again.

      Looked up Fuyutsuki out of curiosity and became happy cuz its an Akizuki class. If the devs like 'hidden messages'/'coincidences' (kinda 'new' to game, dunno how they plan/think/release things) and stuff she would be a good candidate since her name (according to wiki) means winter moon.

      (Fuyutsuki seems highest candidate due to numerous mentions, also 冬(Fuyu) = Winter, so since next Event is also another Winter Event, kinda matches don't you think?)

      All events need some kind of basics nowadays

      -Land base attack aircraft: get enough for at least filling 2 bases if you lack them (240/260/10/261 secretary CV)

      -Interceptors: make sure to clear quarterly interceptors quests they are always welcome.

      -ASW: make sure to have enough ASW equips and as many OASW capable ships as you can. Consider improving your sonars if you can.


      -TP depletion equipments as daihatsus and many drum canisters


      -Night combat: not only the classic searchlight, starshell and night recon but also quad or quints improved torpedoes, improved CA, CL, and DD guns, skilled lookouts, improved surface radars, and of course , high luck TCI girls.

      Support expedition gears: high FP BB guns, suisei/t99 Egusa, and as many high accuracy radars as you can get.

      -CAVs, CLTs, Yura, Abukuma: can hardly imagine an event withouth them.

      -Seaplane Fighters: as many as you can afford, they are never enough SPF. Also consider improving them.

      ---BONUS CONTENT---

      -Asashio-class K2 DDs: they are simply the most valuable DDs currently in game, they can carry daihatsus and tanks and are strong enough for being able to deal with tough abyssals, specially installations. Make sure to have them all at good level.

      -Night Planes: Night combat CVL could be a big help as part of the escort combined fleet, also sister Sara Mk.II for some single fleet scenario in wich you may need both, air power and yasen. Make sure to complete night planes and NOAP quests if you're not done with them yet.

      -Cranes and jets: They are strongly recommended.

      Feel free to add more entries to this list if you consider I'm missing something important.

      Just spend your time farming in casual. I couldn't finish last event's E-3, so I spent the rest of the event farming E-1 and E-2. Didn't get any of the new ships, but left with a good haul of other useful ships and an ok level of buckets and resources left.

      I got a lot of most of the stuff after about a year of playing. The key is completing quests and leveling the right ships. You should *really* pay attention to the various resources here, because there is a whole page dedicated to quests and those rewards and there is at least one guide on leveling

      The key is to pay attention to what the veterans are telling you and give heed to their advice.

      This means that if you don't:
      - have at least 4 Type 96 LBAA, you should be crafting them as part of your Daily Construction until you have at least 4. Then, you should look to opening and completing Quest F39 and F40. F39 is a quarterly repeatable quest.
      - have some Yasen gear (Searchlight, Starshell and Night Recon), then you need to get Sendai to K2 (level 60) and Ayanami to K2 (level 70).
      - have named aircraft (such as Tomonaga Squadron, Egusa Squadron, Iwamoto Squadron), then you need to take a look at completing those quests ASAP. 
      - have CLTs, Abukuma K2, Yura K2, then you should be leveling them. Kitakami and Ooi K2 at level 50, Kiso at 65. Abukuma K2 (75) and Yura K2 (Level 77) both require Blueprints, so plan accordingly.
      - have Drums and Daihatsus, then you should be trying to craft Drums as part of your Daily Construction, and you can get 1 per week by completing some basic Weeklies. Daihatsus are a little harder to come by because most of the ships that have Daihatsus as standard gear require a Blueprint to get, but there are a *few* quests that offer them as a reward choice.
      - have Zuikaku and Shoukaku (aka The Cranes), then you should try getting them ASAP. They are craftable both in standard construciton and LSC. Getting both to K2 requires a Prototype Catapult and Blueprint but there are quests that provide the Catapults.
      - have Akashi yet, then you need to farm her. She drops on 1-5 on the Boss node if you are at least HQ level 80 and you don't have her.
      - have Seaplane Fighters, then you should be upgrading Type 0 Recon Seaplanes (these are craftable and very common standard equipment for some ships) into T2 Seaplane fighters (see my note below). Due to the costs, you *may* have to resort to using Zuiuns instead.
      - have Blueprints, then you should be doing your best to clear 1-5, 2-5, 3-5 and 4-5. Each of those maps rewards a medal, and 4 medals = 1 Blueprint. Further, there are a handful of quests that offer medals as rewards, so you may want to take that into account as well.

      Note: If you have Roma, Italia or Zara you can build Ro.43 Recon Seaplanes and upgrade those to Ro.44 Seaplane fighters. The Ro.44 isn't quite as good as the T2, but it's a LOT cheaper, and in small slots, the difference between the T2 and Ro.44 is minimal and most of the Fighter Power is coming from them having >> anyway. 

      With the exception of the Blueprints, everything you need to clear an event on Easy or Casual mode can be acquired through normal gameplay. You may have a hard time of getting some gear due to the time and resource constraints (Seaplane Fighters are very cost-intensive for screws).

      I will be clear; if you prepare properly and now, you should have no problems in clearing the event on Casual or Easy.

      On one hand it does... on the other hand, if you read the wiki, pay attention to quest rewards and plan accordingly, you should have no problems in clearing events.

      I started in May 2017, and I was able to clear Summer 2017, which was both my first full event and a rather large one at that. While it was on Easy Mode, I attribute my success to reading up on the wiki and following the guides that are present. 

        Loading editor
    • Thanks for the info. Is there a priority on what to focus on obtaining? As in from easiest to hardest?

      Still doubt I'd be ready by then, but I at least want to clear the standard operation on casual this time around.

      I wish there was a guide on what to prioritize on from when your start playing to when you're in the big leagues. That would've helped me out rather than jump all over the place to get what I can.

        Loading editor
    • Crafting is easy, as long as you have the materials to do so.

      Leveling is a bit more challenging due to the lack of good, cheap, easy leveling places. Who to focus on depends entirely on your fleet (there is no point in me telling you to focus on Zuikaku if you don't even have her). It also depends on whether or not you have blueprints lying around or can easily get a blueprin.

      This being said, I would take a look at what you have, what you need and level accordingly. Because I don't know what your fleet looks like, the only advice I can give here is to start with those that do not need blueprints to get to K2.



      As far as guides go, there are plenty that exist (some of them are even on this wiki), but they tend to be filled with personal opinions and your mileage may vary based on what you, as a player like (for example, the guides tell me to focus on surface combat and Torpedo Cut-Ins. I can't stand TCI and will favor a carrier heavy force over battleships every day of the week). There is also the fact that a guide is only as useful as what you are looking for. Event preparation is completely different than aircraft improvements, for example. 

      This all being said, here are some guides that a quick Google Search gave me (note - some of these I knew about in advance):

      A compiliation of guides on the wiki - https://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Guides 

      A very thorough walkthrough of getting started, development goals, improvement goals, etc. This is *very* useful - https://www.reddit.com/r/kancolle/wiki/beginner

      General information on prepparing for an event (note - this is 3 years old) - https://www.reddit.com/r/kancolle/comments/3bjz8p/event_preparations_guide/

      An infographic/guide on event prep. If you are willing to put in the time/effort/energy to follow these steps, you WILL be ready for an event at Easy or Casual mode in 4-6 weeks - https://infograph.venngage.com/publish/b3055fbb-b256-4ea1-bf15-cee244b251ad

      One, This is how they make money. Your not supposed to play for free. (Though you can if you so choose not to support the game).

      Two, Dumped all my resources to net Kashima last event. No regrets, and need not worry about trying to find her again.

          So unless you are a "Gotta catch them all", kind of TTK. As you can only really use 24 Kanmusu at one time for one map run. I have 172 girls, more then enough to finish a event after I level them. So unless they decide to not bring back a event Kanmusu anymore. you will always have a chance to find them a year or so later. Best if luck to everyone.

    • I thought the guy who did Sammy B was doing the Fletchers? At least that's some rumor that I heard anyway...

      As far as Shibafu goes... well, he is a bit hit-or-miss with me.

      On one hand, I do like his Akagi, Kaga, Hiryuu and Souryuu... but some of his others leave much to be desired (some of the Fubuki-Class, Mogami and Mikuma...). Intprepid has an overall good design, but I don't think it suits his style, given the vastly different aestetics that American ships have (read: Iowa, Saratoga and Sammy). I mean, a lot of his work strikes me as something that seems more at home in something from Studio Ghibli, which has an appeal of its own... but I don't think it works for Intrepid IMHO.

      This all being said, the character has grown on me, a lot. I just wish it was a different artist that was called in to do the artwork.

      In any event, I am interested in how they decide to move forward from here. I say this because i found a resource that has a listing of most of the IJN's ships, and, well, other than a hanful of carriers on Taiyou/Shinyou level and some WWI-era cruisers, all of the ships larger than a Destroyer and subs have been implemented.

      Only options now for anything larger than CVEs and DDs are those that were planned but canceled (some Unryuu-class CVs and others)

    • 1. Don't pay for resources. That's one sure way to piss away all your money and end up looking like Someone Who Sank All Their Funds into FX. There's a reason I always have someone on Tokyo Express #2. In my instance, it's Fumizuki and Co., who got to K2 just from running expeditions.

      2. Pay for ship slots. It'll pay itself back, with interest, when you end up needing more diverse range of girls to be on standby for whatever event is at hand.

      Incidentally, there are currently 219 unique individual shipgirls implemented in-game (even with Taigei/Ryuuhou counted as a single unique individual).

      ...not really.

      The Izumo cruisers were the old WWI-era cruisers that I mentioned. Ibuki falls into the ralm of the cancled ships, and there were several of those. 

      Like I said, outside of the handful of the Taiyou-sized CVEs remaining, pretty much everything else is a Destroyer or smaller (read: Submarine or DE). 

      I don't know if they will include minelayers or merchant ships, or how they could even be implemented such that they are worthwhile to have. I mean, Akitsu Maru, Hayasui and Kamoi are useful in their roles as auxilery ships as they bring something to the table. Not sure what use some of these other Auxeleries would have...

      I'm using the same method like senpai here.  Bucket useage is no worse than old 4-3 DD & CL leveling.  Only difference is it's much more resource efficient and it doesn't require any Bauxite at all.

      No you don't. You can build LBAS planes without having the airfields available; the T96 LBAA is buildable with a CV as the secretary (though it's expensive).

      You *should* be able to lock them as normal, just select a ship (probably CV only...) and sort by '. . . .' and while that gear cannot be equipped, you *should* be able to still see it and thus lock it. 

      As far as leveling up, I wouldn't worry about that too much. In my (albeit limited) expereince, the bombers are prone to losing ranks very easily. 

      Regarding the tweet I mentioned, it's here: https://twitter.com/KanColle_STAFF/status/1066163132014292992

      I don't understand a lick of Japanese and can read less, but from the looks of it, there is nothing described there that is not readily available on the wiki.

      You *should* be able to lock them as normal, just select a ship (probably CV only...) and sort by '. . . .' and while that gear cannot be equipped, you *should* be able to still see it and thus lock it. 

      As far as leveling up, I wouldn't worry about that too much. In my (albeit limited) expereince, the bombers are prone to losing ranks very easily. 

      Regarding the tweet I mentioned, it's here: https://twitter.com/KanColle_STAFF/status/1066163132014292992

      I don't understand a lick of Japanese and can read less, but from the looks of it, there is nothing described there that is not readily available on the wiki.

      Yeah I saw that video and noticed the LBAS aircraft especially the fighter aircraft.  Good thing I recently upgraded my Hayabusa Type 2 to Type 3A standard.  Hopefully I can get my 2nd Hayabusa Type 3A to +5 before the event start.

      I'm in about the same boat, I may end up dropping some money on screws to speed things along.

      Thanks for the link. I already have built planes without a LBAS. What I was talking about was locking them off event. Unless they changed that. I have only been able to lock them during a event I did get a few Land fighters off event through mission awards. So would be nice to have a LBAS perhaps world three or four. For lower TTK to lock and star pre event

    • As I mentioned, you should be able to go through the process of trying to equip a CV with one of the LBAS planes:
      - gear -> sort -> pick the '. . . .' option (should be the last one)
      - Sift through the equipment
      - you should see LBAS stuff on the last page or so, these will be greyed out, but you should have the option of locking.

      I say you should try using a CV, because that stuff doesn't seem to show up when trying it with a DD or something else.

      A minimum of 7 DDs and 2 CLs; you need 7 DDs for goddamned Transport Combined Fleet.

      1 other CL is just backup; I really, really recommend Isuzu Kai Ni as one of the CL.

      I assume you know that you don't neglect other cruiser types as well.

      ...I also recommend you to try Class C "Easy" or even B "Medium" when there is a nice reward, as long as it falls within the scope of your fleet.

      Already have a few CL at kai. KTKM and Sendai at kai ni. Leveling Isuzu to kai ni now.

      For DDs I have Yuudachi and Shigure at kai ni. Shimakaze, Fubuki, and Hatsuharu are at kai and at least 35+. I also have Ayanami at kai (20 though). Any other ones to focus on?

      No one can use daihatsus except my AVs and i'm not sure how routing would effect them. How many drums do I need? Only have 4 at the moment. I'm guessing at least 7 with two main guns and a drum per destroyer, right?

    • Usually areas that need Transport Combined Fleet are kind and gentle to AV....if they're fast.

      Asashio and Kasumi. To make things easier, just level some that don't need blueprints/reports, but are good enough (so yeah, ditch Hatsuharu). Yukikaze is very good for her cost, too.

      Oh you gonna need more drums than that. Like 12 minimum (3 per DDs, 4 DDs in main fleet of Transport Combined Fleet).

      You will soon find that whoever gets to be placed in the main fleet of Transport Combined Fleet would make those Stormtroopers from Star Wars pale in comparison; might as well stuff them with drums.

      You may have to go without daihatsus until you get ships that can equip them...but if you are going casual, that may not be an issue either. This being said, you are going to want as many drums as you can get. There is a weekly quest that gives one, and they can be built very easily (RNG-Sama willing). 

      However, given the nature of what we know of the event, you may want to have some LBAS bombers on-hand

      Given the hints that I have read, I think it's going to be a variant of the Nakajima J1N:
      -  It was developed as a long-range fighter, but this effort failed
      - Beasue it did not work as a fighter, it was used as a recon plane instead
      -  It was used as a land-based night fighter during the defense in the Solomon area

      The T100 didn't do any of these things.

      You are, of course, absolutely right on points 1 and 2. Type 100 started as recon. But it was converted into night fighter later (including some Schräge Musik-style setups similar to those fitted on J1N). It even seen some combat in the Rabaul area, though ultimately it was unsuccesful. J1N is much better fit and I have no idea how I could forgot about it. Somehow I fixated on army planes and forgot Navy Type 2 Recon.

      Also, considering the next update is December 7th, I am guessing that like 2 weeks after that update as the Event start date, so somewhere in-between 19th to 23rd.

      Yeah. I drive to Ohio to visit family for Christmas every year (I live in Maryland, so it's about an 8-9 hour drive), and I stay there for about a week...so my ability to do anything significant is going to be lacking this time around.

      If this were going to be a Large-Scale event, I wouldn't be as concerned because I normally wait about a week before getting started. But since I expect this one to be a Medium at best, I'll only have about 2-3 weeks to clear and farm.

      While I could easily play while away (and I have every intention of doing this), I don't know what my schedule and such will look like so I'm not counting on being able to power through everything quickly once theres sufficent info here.

    • Next Winter Event Information Revealed

      Winter Event Information

      • Winter 2018 Event (2ND) will take place within the Central Solomon Seas.
        • It will cover the battles to reach the Central Solomon Seas of the Iron Bottom Sound from Rabaul Anchorage.
        • From the Winter 2018 Event (2ND), you will be able to obtain the Type 2 Land-Based Reconnaissance Aircraft.
        • It is also currently planned that it will become possible to improve it into Nakajima J1N1 Gekko in the future.
        • It is within current considerations that a much higher performance Land-Based Recon Aircraft will show up in the future.

      Event Operations

      • The early part of the Winter Event will cover a Tokyo Express Operation by Destroyer Squadron, where you must face against Enemies equipped with Radars who were waiting to ambush you.
        • The Asashio-class Destroyer Minegumo will be appearing, and the motif for the Event Operation is the Historical Battle where Murasame & Minegumo were caught within the Enemy Radar and were sunk as of result.
        • The Final Operation will consist of a Transport Operation to defend Buin, and will reward you the Seaplane Tender Nisshin.

      Future Game Contents

      • It is currently planned for World 7-2 to be implemented with a Brand New Destroyer, and if possible one more new additional Destroyer may be implemented as well.
      • The next New Map to be implemented in the game will be Palau District Ocean.
      • Also, ZECO is currently in work of designing multiple Fletcher-class Destroyers.

      Why don't we just comprehend it as guns (on her planes) blazing?

      Actually, there are some accounts that in her final hour when she was burning and dead in the water Japanese closed so much that crews of her 40mm Boforses opened fire.

      Of course it was utterly futile and I don't know if it's even true, but still...

    • Tch, land-based squadrons again.

      As expected of destroyers which can't kill shit, they need outside help 99% of the time.

      At least I have a dozen LBAA and can scrape together an ok base air defense. And here I was hoping to maybe try normal for one map. Guess it's casual and easy for me. Hope easy won't be too hard.

      If I remember correctly, in Japanese "dawn of sth" actually means "the dawn AFTER something".
      So I think クリスマス明け means that the event will start in 26 December.

      Bring it. I didn't hoard these resources for charity, plus I have most the the ships I want. I wonder if any ultra-rare ships will drop in a small scale event. Hype increasing steadily.

    • I think this "Normal/Hard are going to be difficult" warnings are a norm by now. I recall seeing them ... every event for at least a year, I think? Anyway, they're not wrong...

      Good luck, everyone. I mean, how much of a nightmare can a SMALL event get... but you should never underestimate The Salt.

    • so why is this called 2nd winter event?

        Loading editor
    • Because this is the 2nd Winter event in 2018. The first one was 16 February through 23 March.

      Winter starts on (or about) 21 December and goes until 21 March (or thereabouts).
