Futaba Fall 17 E-4 Unlocking Guide (EN):
https://my.mixtape.moe/lysjri.png

News:
-Tama will receive a Kai 2 as hinted by the Arctic camouflage (+ Arctic equipment) from the October ranking rewards. It will be implemented with the event end maintenance.
-The Fall event, Decisive Battle, Operation Shou-Gou! Interception in the Battle of Leyte Gulf (Part 1) has begun. It is medium-scale in size with a total of 4 maps and will end on Dec. 11.
-It is possible to assemble the full Nishimura Fleet comprising of the 7 ships Yamashiro, Fusou, Mogami, Shigure, Michishio, Asagumo, and Yamagumo into a 7-ship fleet. The system was updated just to allow it to occur in this occasion in the Third Fleet. There is a new formation for the 7-ship Fleet, which can be used starting on E-2 where the Shima fleet plays a role.
-Regarding the 7-ship fleet, there is a "Striking Force Command Facility" equipment for the flagship, obtained through Action Reports rewarded in all difficulties in E-3, which allows for a ship to retreat when taiha'd. The ship will not require an accompanying DD to retreat with her, and although she can still take more damage while retreating she will not sink. You can obtain it through a conversion quest after clearing E-3.
-Yamashiro, Fusou, and Shigure have receive special Surigao fleet joining, sortie, and battle lines. There is also special dialogue lines when clearing E-4.
-Etorofu-class ships Tsushima (E-2 drop) and Sado (E-2), and I-400 (E-3 drop) have been implemented. Suzutsuki(VA: Fujita Saki) is be the E-4 reward. There is also an 11B T0 Recon (Skilled) as reward in E-1, the Toukai ASW LBAS plane as E-2 and 901 Squad variant and E-3 rewards, and Type 4 Fighter Hayate as E-3 reward. Shiden Kai 4 is a reward for E-4.
-Changes have been made to support expeditions requirements and a new ASW support expedition comp has been added that requires 2DD and 2CVL. Shelling can only use 1CV(L) now. 2CV or more is now aerial support, and it cannot use CVLs.
-The Fall and Winter event will both share a the Battle of Leyte Gulf as a motif, with the fall event serving as the first half.
-The September ranking rewards were distributed in late October, the new equipments were Shiden M11, Shiden M21 Shiden Kai, and Type 22 Surface Radar Kai 4 (Late Model). The equipment is planned to be available in the future.
-A british DD will be implemented in the Winter event.
-There are plans for expanding with ASW equipment from the land of black tea like ASDIC and hedgehogs.
-More Kai Ni are planned for the latter half of the year.
-The 5th year of KanColle will see something "interesting" regarding foreign ships.
-New Akizuki and Matsu-class destroyers are under plans to be added.
-KanColle will migrate to HTML5 and Friend Fleets will be implemented at 2018 Spring.

That's it, I give up. I can't even do the boss on normal. I had relative ease doing Z6 and perfect air raid defense, but I can barely reach ZZ3, let alone kill it.

I fully deserve to clear this map and get the Shiden Kai 4. I have 2 Ro.44, high level ships, 2 skilled lookouts, night battle gear, and +6 AP shells. Since I don't have I-13 or 14, this is literally all I can do.

And yet, I haven't even cleared the first LD after over 100 tries since the Kusous always get hit down to red.

I'm sick of this and it's having a negative impact on my real life. Just going to drop down to easy and end this nightmare.

I'm about to finish up unlocking Z nodes, but I'm nervous to finally tag my Nishimura fleet. All I need to do is get AS on node N. 6 Nishimura ships and 1 CV gets there, and that's the starting point for the bosses later, right?

Fujita tried too hard maybe? The early voices lines impressed me as she wasn't sure which tone to use for Suzutsuki. The later were better.

Well to be fair, people thought at first that Hatsuzuki's line and her voice seemed out of place due to how she looks stoic and cold maybe even angry, yet she's quite the opposite. I guess we will just have to get used to it.

Currently clearing E-3H on hard and watching Chitose and Zuihou fuck Yorktown-chan sideways with 200-330~ damage crits. Is this expected?

What sort of composition works best? I think I'm going to have to use Kongou and Haruna to reach the 7 ships, so would 4FBB with Iowa and a Pasta BB plus a CV sounds better than 3FBB 2CVLs?

Yes, she drops while I was doing pre boss run.
>>
>>17990715
Most voices for everything smaller than CA are weird.
>>
>>17991028
Well you will want to obtain at least air superiority while you go to the boss at the air nodes and that will pretty much require CVLs and a CAV with fighters, maybe on a BB like on the Pasta ships. You could use LBaS for that but you will want to use both bases for Z6 node.
>>
>>17991039
Gotcha. So I can cover the 7 ships with 3FBB 1CAV 2CVL + 1CL 2DD 2CA 1CLT, does that sound about right? I could even run TCI on the 2DD and 1CLT if I need it. I'll have to run Kongou and Haruna but I can run Iowa as the third.

Can an abyssal who regrets her wrongdoings, who knows she did things she shouldn't have done, be forgiven?
Could a forgiven abyssal ever join human society, and maybe even fight for the TTK as well?
>>
>>17990985
If you just approach it as several separate maps, most of them aren't bad at all. It's just a few relaxing breather maps, a tough first boss, and a nightmarish pseudoboss to S rank at Z6.

People win the lottery in one ticket too. But if someone called this game 100% RNG bullshit for masochists, this is the last thing I'd show them to prove them wrong. You get two whole screws for taking a fleet that ignores all map requirements to give you the worst routing and an 80% chance of being rerouted right in front of the boss node. Even if you get perfect S ranks all along the way, 4/5 runs will end in failure. Then you have to pray the boss doesn't come with a troll sub that costs you the S rank. Every year I dust off this fleet, who are all sitting at 99 now, give it a shot, and say fuck this.

A nip mentioned on futaba that based on their shoulder insignia, Fusou and Yamashiro have the rank of Lieutenant (大尉) but after looking at the insignia for the IJN, it didn't match with Lieutenant but instead more closely with Rear-Admiral. Rear-Admiral also happens to be the rank that Masami Ban, skipper of Fusou, and Shinoda Katsukiyo, skipper of Yamashiro, were promoted to some weeks before Leyte. How does it feel to know your ships can outrank you if you're too lazy?

Chuuha DDs are strong enough to one-hit Rus. The main issue is keeping your BBs alive.

The issue i have is that i get up to 3 ships red even before yasen finishes effectively cutting my attacks by 30%. All but the bosses die once hit regardless i know.

But, like in that case, Fusou and Shigure didn't even get a chance to attack. By the start of day, Fusou, Shigure and Mogami are in the red and Yamashiro goes chuuha before making a shot and the boss is left with 114 hp. Which, in turn, is one of the worst damage results i got despite the score being an A.

Shit composition.
Shit placement.

Let me give you 2tips.
You want DD with skilled lookout to go first so that they can take out imps.
You want the kusou sisters to either be in the flagship spot to gain spotting advantage or be on the last spot to finish off the boss.

I guess most KC3fags are just dumb.

He is not doing in hard. All this stupidity can be solved by placing 1 sub into the fleet.
>>
>>17992417
It can not. You think i didn't try it with a sub?
Ever since LD started, the sub can't go past S without at least chuuha, and there are 3 (three) more nodes along the road that can easily fuck her up unless i load her full of damecons, as one is definitely not enough (is what the latest 10 sorties have told me).
>>
>>17992422
Is this true?
They have higher ASW in kuso mode? I advance past S in taiha and my sub still doesn't die.
>>
>>17992422
I hope you are using SSV instead of SS. use boilers if passing through S is the problem.
>>
>>17992438
That happened to me only once.
If she gets chuuha at S, she gets repetitively chipped on at least 2 of the 3 preboss nodes. Only way for her to make it is survive S unharmed/scratched otherwise her state just magnets hits. Post flagship damecon activation is still chuuha and is very not good.

Anyway, thanks everyone for putting up with this feeble niggers moaning. Night somehow eneded up not fucking most of my ships over before day and Yamashiro decided to play GOD and do a 150 then 300 APCI (which neither sister want to do over the last 7 or so runs of me reaching the boss).

Since I go to Z8, Low. Actually it doesn't matter for Shima route.

Nishimura route fleet is similar. I marked 6 of Nishimura with shma tags, so Hitomi also has a shima tag in that picture. For Nishimura route, I used Iyo without tags causing them to start at nishimura. Sure, you risk getting damaged from extranode (hard needs 4 nishimura DD), but it's fine for me since I also ran support.
I can't remember the exact setup but seaplane mules (shiun mixes with seaplane fighter) Mogaman should lead you to Z9. And you can also replace lookout with radar if LS is not enough.

Yes, all dong. Did you try all nishimura? Looking back, it might be better since you can avoid that node and only have to fight Z9.

>>17992918
Well, he shaved almost 400hp off from the boss, so that's not that bad.
>>
>>17992977
Failed LOS at Y. He probably retreated his sub along the way from there. Either that or retreated at S and had a party along the yasen node.
>>
>>17992977
There are min. 8 nodes where your ships can get damaged on the way to the boss if you come from Shima direction.
>>
>>17992724
It's barely above shit.
1. Iwamoto 3. Skilled 21
Iwai fighter Hayabusa 55
Type 1 bomber x2 Type 1 M22 x2

The fighters were maxed.
You can try and put an extra bomber in the first base for better Air control, but either way the average damage will be around 200-300.
It's medium so it may not help that much on hard, or at all due to rng.
>>
>>17992959
LBAS didn't really helpful?

Just my opinion but in this game, odds HP is the most important against critical, overkill damage. So I will always choose Hitomi over Iyo, even tho her other status are lower.

You only have to worry about her AA power when fiddling with your equipment. She has no carrier support with her.
>>
>>17993035
>No significant changes on the fleet used for first boss, right?
Assuming you sub cheesed it, you can drop Mogami for another Nishimura DD to skip the R node. You won't need the extra fighter power. The boss itself is far easier, though expect all your planes to get shot down.

What kind of event would you create if you were Tanaka?

Since we have both I-400 and I-401 now, mine would be based off of that canceled operation at the end of the war that involved them attacking Panama. It would be a small scale event with only three maps and they would be relatively straightforward. There would be no shiplocking since the entire event would have to be cleared only with submarines. Also, no LBAS for historical reasons.

The boss of the first map would be a Ne-class heavy cruiser -- normal on easy, elite on medium, flagship on hard, it would go one level "up" during the last dance, unless you played on hard, in which case it would just be accompanied by additional two He-class flagships. Other nodes would mostly contain destroyers and light cruisers with ASW abilities proportional to the difficulty level. The reward for clearing it would be a Wurfgerat on easy, an additional good submarine torpedo on normal, additional screws and medal on hard.

The boss of the second map would be a Wo-class aircraft carrier -- elite on easy, flagship on normal, kai flagship on hard, it would go one level "up" during the last dance, unless you played on hard, in which case it would just be accompanied by another two Nu-class flagships with high ASW bombers. It would be surrounded by destroyers, light cruisers and light carriers with substantial ASW capabilities that increase with the difficulty level. The reward would be a special type of Seiran on easy, a better Seiran together with that special thing from Hitomi on medium, and additional two reinforcement expansions on hard. There would also be a quest that would allow players to gain a Wurfgerat from doing something on the second map.

The boss of the third map would be an installation-type enemy. She would still have to be defeated only using subs, so your best bet would be equipping them with Wurfgerats. That's the reason why admirals should be able to gain two of them during the earlier stages of the event. It would also be extra-sensitive to day aerial bombardment from Seirans and its air defense would either be extremely weak so that air superiority could be achieved with just one or two fighters on SSVs, or non-existent. Additionally, it would be accompanied by ships that can't attack submarines like battleships and heavy cruisers. It wouldn't matter anyway since the submarines with Wurfgerats would be forced to attack the boss, but you would probably have to have a strong night battle setup as well to get an S rank. It would be surrounded by light cruisers and destroyers with good ASW abilities, as well as abyssal Kaiboukans.

The reward for clearing the entire event would be the submarine I-402 on all difficulties (I know she wasn't scheduled to take part in that operation, but I don't think any reward would fit more than her since two of her sisters were involved) and some unimportant extra stuff on higher ones. There would also be a new Kaiboukan and a new submarine, probably I-201 class, both introduced as drops. The event would probably have to be preceded by a period of increased submarine drop rate on all maps as well as I-400 and I-401 being available as normal drops so that people would not complain that much about the requirements. Maybe some special quest or collectible to get another Wurfgerat or two for the final map too.

Thoughts?

That's why they're charms. Most of them give a bit of raw accuracy, so it's a half-measure at worse. I was never really sold on radar spam. Doesn't hurt to try if the main fleet is doing most of the cleaning up anyway.

In that case, radars are better cause they give more acc than any of the mgs, and equipping high acc secondaries should make it even better.

Not necessarily. Cause U can stop you whenever it decides to and it may as well be for a good number of runs.
And it's the first boss that is the hardest part, due to the long ass route and enduring shitty scratch attempts untill your stuff decides to actually do shit, which doesn't always happen on the first try either.

Or you know, she can easily survive untill her shot, which will most probably be the first enemy shot, and send any of your below BB/CV tier ships home.

I just started a month ago and managed to finish E3 barely. Best ships are near 40 lvl, no kai nis at all and no special equipment at all (just 1 searchlight, a couple of air radars and 1 3 type shell). Should I try for E4 or should i farm for rare ships ( Ooyodo,Akashi,duckys etc)?

Start farming, E4 on kuso is much harder than all of the previous maps combined.

>>17994046
At least isn't Azur Lane garbage.
>>
>>17994043
I was done with E-3 on the first day of the event, how is it a grind? You could even pace yourself with unlocking E-4 and then it'd be a really fast run to Suzutsuki and Shiden Kai 4.
>>
I sometimes wonder what these whiny bitches even want. Do they just want to be able to finish the event on the first day? How is that fun? Back in 2015 when events were shorter I used to do that but it stopped being fun because then I'd have nothing to do for the remaining weeks because everything dropped while clearing.
>>
>>17994047
Try to do E-4 untill the Z6 clear. If you can pull that off, you may have a chance of clearing the event.
If not, go for farming.

>>17994065
I'm gonna call bullshit in regards to all the aligned stars to get your perfect defence and the amound of sorites you have to do in general to just unlock routes.
Unless you played more than 12 hours that day and used fodd to make up the morale for ships or supports.

>>17994065
The TP part might feel like a grind if you don't have a comp that consistently A-ranks for 100+ points, though I've never found TP 'hard' myself. E3 air defence is not so much a grind and more a test of patience. Looking up mechanics and improving upon setups help me keep my cool in E4.

Today is far from the first day. Not everything what you want drops. Routes get increasingly tedious but not more rewarding in return. Fags love to complain about gacha games having events nonstop (bad design or somesuch), but then you complain about shit being too short. Scrap your rare shit to relive you funtimes of having to grind them. Scrap all your shit and do events with level 1 ships to get the maximum of your event duration, guaranteed. Why are speedrunners having fun clearing events in the minimum amount of time? Why can they have fun and you not? Why aren't you ranking right now to make up the lost time in the event? Or are you also one of those whiny bitches who don't know what they want?
The fact that you cleared the event doesn't mean everyone should have cleared it already too. So suck it up and do whatever the game allows you to. You're not the measuring line for the game.
>>
>>17994072

Events are 80% pre-event preparation and 20% actual sortieing. Always have been, always will be.

He must fit on some measuring line if their are 3 difficulty settings and a ranking system.

It's been two weeks. You should have been able to clear it by now if you were trying the whole time. The people stuck on hard and acting like the game is unplayable on every other difficulty either need to have prepared more or lower their standards for themselves. You said it yourself, this event isn't very rewarding. So if this event is such a slog then drop the difficulty and get it over with.

People can retreat in E-1 through E-3? That's news to me.

It's nice to see people who, like they said, cleared on the first day, and already knew of all the bullshit that can be cause by node L in E-2 (and how using dong solved that) and the sub and pre TP boss nodes in E-3. Knew all the best recomended comps and optimal routings and had 100% perfect rng...
Except that is bullshit and not standard you can expect of the game.

>>17994198
You can change the LBAS fighter:bomber ratio if you want more guarantee of AS/AS+, depending on which and how many planes you decide to bring in your Nishimura fleet. Seirans are more for bombing and not so much for spotting/air power. The entire point is to get the APCI finisher to pierce the boss armour when night goes to day.

It says you need more than 24 F33 los to go to Z9. Try working around that. For more FP you could try swapping seirans for the model 12 Zuiun for some extra AA.
You also should have tried for less 44 and another zero seaplane.

At least let me have a little bit of hope.

>>17994339
damecon is good for 2 nodes. first node taiha'd in and second node damecon. after that they can and will sink if you advance.
goddess is good for 3 nodes. taiha, goddess, taiha.

to tank boss with damecon a sub has to make it to zz2 without burning it.
to tank the boss with goddess the sub only has to make it to zz1 without burning it.

these are two nodes that will frequently taiha your sub

The final boss is sufficiently easier to keep your hopes up, but it's the route that should keep you on your toes with all those fucking nodes and their potential crits.

Route has been very forgiving due to route support. Number one thing sending me back is PT boat cut-in on one of my BBs.

If the boss is considerably easier, then it'll be done in no time. I have gotten so close to killing the boss, and I'm sure it would have happened if it wasn't for an AP cut-in missing.

If you have nothing to do, that's your problem. Get some other hobbies. It's not fun to have to rush instead of enjoying an event. And no it doesn't drop while clearing. It's not unusual for it to take over 100 farming sorties to get everything.

Farm in easy before clear in hard. And micromanagement your life isn't that hard. Yeah, they aren't paying you to do that, and neither they force you to play hard difficulty. Can't take on the challenge? IRL business fucks up the schedule? Just go for easy.

Swapped Yamashiro to 16 inch+38cm kai and got green T this sortie. 100k fuel, 56k ammo and 15k bauxite remaining is probably enough to clear the last boss now as long as I don't rely on support
>>
>>17994736
That should be enough even with support.
No LBAS untill LD at least though. She can divide a base by 0 and that happening with your baux too often may cause some bad.
>>
>>17994736
Congrats.

Here I am with no resources still stuck. I won't call it quits till the end but I'm not feeling too good about this.
>>
>>17994736
Home stretch now. Don't send your LBAS into the boss until last dance and enjoy the luxury of putting one LBAS on the sub node and one on S. I only needed one land base on boss for last dance but your mileage may vary.
>>
>>17994736
Last boss is a lot easier because you can drop Mogamin for guaranteed shortest routing with 4DD since you only need an SPF on sub to get AS+ at boss.
>>
>>17994765
I still need I400, I failed to get her during clearing and my post-clear farms weren't consistent on top of draining my bauxite massively because I was rolling crane+CV+2CVL. Each run cost like 500-1000 bauxite alone
>>
>>17994712
Clearing on easy is failing. Telling players they might as well give up if real life is more important than a video game is the problem, not a solution.

Like what? KanColle wasn't one. They never made dailies mandatory and leave long gaps between events instead of spamming them endlessly. They could've improved this event by simply making it run from the start of November until Dec. 11. Calling it medium sized is ridiculous, too.

>>
>>17994866
>so many posts from people desperately rushing to clear the bosses in the last week?
This happens every event because people are lazy or procrastinate. Also the only thing scale means these days is how many maps/rewards you're getting.
>>
>>17994827
>Like what? KanColle wasn't one
Football Manager is a close analogue. The 'work' is managing the players. Prison Architect is another. Euro-Truck sim. Something more gamey like Harvest Moon can apply as well. You might notice that it doesn't need to exactly resemble a real job for tasks in a game to be work-like.

>They never made dailies mandatory
Dailies needed if you want to progress in the game for unlocking purposes and accumulating certain items. If you don't 'work', you don't get.

>leave long gaps between events instead of spamming them endlessly.
Long gaps do exist, so much that there are even people who complain about it, and especially compared to mobile-oriented games that better qualify for event spam by practically having them back-to-back.
>>
This event can be cleared in 24-48 hours 96 hours tops for people with optimized fleet, healthy resources, good equipments, and right decision making.
>>
>>17994866
Since 50k is enough, it's medium.
>>
>>17994914
Is that including P2W because E4 1st boss is bullshit
>>
>>17994895
The dailies don't need to be done daily to progress. The only one that matters is the screw discount for upgrading, and it's just a discount, so you'll eventually be bottlenecked by materials instead of quests. Expeditions are time limited, but the game's balanced around only doing a fraction of them and you can easily save up to the resource cap.
>>
>>17994848
>>
>>17994948
Are you a kind of players that leave their free elixirs in the inventory and don't use them no metter what, right?
>>
>>17994948
It's easier than Z6. Paying to win won't magically prevent all the wrong ships from going red in night battle. Victory is really decided by whether the Fusous get targeted and if they target the right things. I can't imagine many people who cleared it wouldn't have done so without the use of cash shop items. I didn't use a single one.

But they are needed. I didn't say everything had to be done every day. Even new players might not need to do say the world 2 boss quest, but crafting and PvP are low-effort and the reward items add up.

I'm sure they will be more AA focused but they have 12 rapid firing guns anon that could fire 10 6 inch bullets per minute. That's high FP for a light cruiser. Brooklyns also had 15 6 inch guns that could fire 8 6 inch shells per minute(Though apparently some crews could get it up to 9 RPM). Meanwhile the best the Japanese light cruisers ever had were 6 to 7 guns that did not shoot as fast. Higher FP indeed.

I don't think we're in disagreement here. Unless you're suggesting that progress in the game doesn't depend on how fast you gain resources, items included. Again, not everything needs to be done every day, but if you want to progress, more resources can only help.

I don't think 'veteran' admirals who can afford to idle need it as much in case that's your frame of reference. Stockpiling might be a different story.

How does this even qualify as a job?

I started the event with 300k fuel and 1500 buckets and still did e-4 on easy because I'd rather shit blood than have to sparkle route support and sit there watching my resources go down until my shitters get lucky enough to sink the boss. the game just isn't fun, so claiming that you could be having fun if you spent more time not having fun is stupid.
>>

Of course south is better.
>>
>>17995685
One of them must not have the green tag. It's impossible to start from the south with only green tags. That said, yes that start is better but you still should change Imuya for Iyo or Hitomi. At least Shioi if you don't have either twin.

That's because it cuts out most of the other planes and junk. It's still going to be the same low percentage. As far as I know, weapon crafting doesn't get drop bonuses from special recipes.

Everybody seems to be using 6 Nishimura + Iyo or Hitomi. So I should have put Shima lock on Nishimura girls unlike people told at first?

What is the second best option and how much shittier it is?
>>
>>17996255
That setup is used for Nishimura route as well.
>>
>>17996255
You need just a one ship with lock other than green to use Shima route. If you have both Iyo and Hitomi, you can give one of them a green tag, give non-green tag to the other, and give all Nishimura fleet members green tags. That way you will be able to change the starting point by simply swapping Iyo for Hitomi.
>>

*Nishimura route, not Shima.

I see. Should I bring 4 DDs and high LoS to avoid R and Z8?

Not always, but rather frequently unless your fleet focuses down the CLs and Nu fast enough.
>>
>>17996280
>Should I bring 4 DDs and high LoS to avoid R and Z8?
I'd say the shorter route is very attractive and works well with comps that include a single sub. You'll need to pull your air power from elsewhere, though.

>Also does the sub always get taihad in S?
Sometimes here, sometimes on the night nodes.

At the boss for spotting. LBAS can supplement air power without compromising on your fleet setup.

I'd be more inclined to give them money if they looked normal and not like this shit.

It doesn't matter. Both route got pros and cons.
For me, it is better to go Nishimura route if you are using sub since you can fully tank the yasen nodes. Shima route has some CA mix into their yasen nodes.

How many times you failed to reach boss and how many times you needed to kill it?

Only trying to get in Z9 now. Always in dong formation, but the air nodes always chuuha or taiha one DD and even the subs at starting node are quite dangerous. Should I place Fusous lower?

Fusous should be lower unless it's final kill time, then you put one of them as the flagship.

Crits from the enemies are bullshit. I wish we crit as much as them.

Phase 1 7/27 and phase 2 4/10. I changed my setup every 5-10 runs (around the time sparkles run out). The bosses were pretty easy, but the psychological effect of mid-route taiha and failed runs is strong sometimes.

Boss 1: 24/12, Boss 2: 1/6.

A lot of my retreats in Part 1 were due to Mogami or Node R taiha, so I switched to DD x4 instead.

>>17996773
It's worth a try. From the point I gave Shigure a flare, I didn't experience any abyssal cut-ins from the loli sub & her friends anymore. As for searchlight, I gave it to Yamagumo after the 2nd boss kept blowing up the Fusous on LD. She died to Fusou at full health on the next sortie.

I had something like 26-27 LOS from sub radar, type 22 k4 surface radar on two DD's, a night recon plane & a Zuiun 12 between the two BB's. I didn't bring an air radar in order to avoid getting AACI at the boss.

AACI wiped out all the boss's bombers once, and it cost me an LD victory after she taiha'd both Fusou's instead of the sub.

>>17996984
If that's the absolute best equipment/ships you have, there's not much else to do but keep trying.
Don't use torp bombers or fighters on support fleets though, like, at all.
>>
>>17996984
Your Fusous are low level. They also have around 20 less firepower before their second remodel. Set Mogami to flagship and equip SFFCF on her. Give Yamashiro an AP shell instead. Also, why do you use Zuiuns on everybody? I-400 Kai should have given you a Seiran.

NEVER use planes on your BBs in support fleet, they're worthless because they cannot trigger artillery spotting like that. Give them more guns or radars instead. Same thing goes for fighters on CV(L)s. And use dive bombers instead of torpedo bombers.
>>
>>17996984
Your Fusous aren't K2 to properly carry.
Equipment is too subpar.
Swap Yuki or Asa for another CAV with some seaplanes and Michi if you have her.
Use a higher level sub, Iyo or Hitomi prefferably.
Remove the SFFCF for another AP shell since it's last dance and you'll need everyone todeal with her.
Your only bet is to just keep trying now.

>>17996998
What's wrong with torp bombers in support? They still contribute, just worse than DBs, and i dont he has enough good ones.

More planes that contribute to AS.

>>17997299
But more planes on the Fusous will not allow them to cut-in?

Put them elsewhere?

Where else? The sub? You have to bring 4 DDs if you bring the sub along.

I am not saying that this game is becoming more and more pay2win, but because of the equipment requirement and their powercreep, I am worried that new comers will find it hard to catch up and will drop it in favour of newer games like fgo and al.

The only things going through powercreep are the enemies and the shit required to counter them or to use the optimal route (that is locked behind large amounts of time spent with crafting shit without Akashi or ship specific quests with abysmal drop rates). The +2 will barely be noticable when the roll goes from scratch to a ~100-200 crit.

You mean the only things going through powercreep is the entire gameplay.

It's more like, the enemies get either tougher, longer or tirckier to beat, but our methods of fighting them stay the same.

For what reason did Tanaka have to put a fucking Ru class in 3-2F?
