Kantai Collection General Thread

Recommended Posts

What Dano said is something I've been considering, but if it can be confirmed that be awesome. I wonder if someone at BCS can confirm this seeing as how they have British Belles in the mix.

 

Also, I also give it a day or so to confirm intel. By the time I jumped in gave it enough time for solid intel to populate the wiki. Took 30 minutes since I woke up to see the new Kanmusu on the wiki, yet had them linked to me via Twitter when I cursed by not seeing them listed. Even now it's still shaky, yet it's solid enough I can have my fun in E-1 at the least. I managed to beat E-1 in a straightforward manner requiring 2 CL (both with planes), as 4 DDs. Later changed that to 3 CLs & 3 DDs because of the boss node. Those more experienced Abyssal subs. Now cleared, and one less to worry about. E-1 is cleared on easy because I have no patience & time for anything else. I'm curious about Aquila though because I'm seeing her as E-3 hard only, yet wanting her on E-3 easy because I don't have that kind of time to dedicate to farming, more so with this stupid RNG.

 

Now trying to fish up I-26 is a pain in the rear. 19 S-Ranks in & still no I-26 to speak of. I did get a Maruyu, for luck, I guess. That's something. It's been recorded by other players that they sortied for 20-40+ times in an attempt to fish her up, yet nothing.....I'm curious about the average with it seeming to be around 30 or even 50.. I'm on my 19th, and still no I-26. Not budging until I get I-26 though, yet I may have to by Monday for time......

 

That's also the fourth time the stupid RNG robbed me of my clear S-Rank victory >_>........Sortie every 5-10 minutes; Gotta keep hunting for I-26.......

 

--------------

 

EDIT: RNG Difficulty Rigging:

 

Oh, I'm in not a good mood (mood souring more & more) now knowing the RNG is now resorting to cheating to keep me away from S-Ranks, let alone I-26. It's resorting to hurting my Kanmusu on other nodes now leading up to the boss node, as well as pretending my girls are inexperienced in ASW warfare. It's like being in a sports game where referees continue to mess with you so you'd lose on purpose, rigging the game in the process. This is not how you have RNG behave on what should be my 20th S-rank, and beyond. If there was weather effects, it be more believable, yet I'm not in the mood for false immersion (I'm drained).

There are all kinds of odd pronunciations if you go back enough years, and who can say how they pronounced 'admiral' in the time of Elizabeth of England? I wouldn't think any of the Belles would pronounce it that way, though. I suppose that will be up to the Casting Director! :)

Well, I guess I just stumbled across something similar Dano did, so let's just go with the flow. Yet, all those accents get in the way, but whatever. It's either ignored during recording, or there's another source we're just not seeing.

It's neat. Graf Zeppelin says it in a cute manner also that it's just interesting to note. The "more you know", also in that 'Tengential learning' manner thanks to how KanColle & Victory Belles displays things. Mostly KanColle right now for how much more influence it has in practice :P

I-26 and Warspite are both must haves for me.

 

Will probably just scrap Minazuki since I have limited ship slot.

 

As for Aquila, although I'd like to have her as a CV her stats are even worse than a CVL so I dunno... probably not going to farm for her(if I get her I'll keep her but if I don't, meh)

Glad to see the Aquila! :)

 

Although personally I'd have given her a bit more luck.

Sure, she was never commissioned, but while she was staying put in Genoa harbour she was bombed by Allied aircrafts, attacked by Italian divers with manned torpedoes, and mined by the retreating Germans... and when the dust settled, she was still there, peacefully afloat! B)

Do you have a source on that? I believe you, but it bugs me that I can't find it on my own ;_;

1 morning for E1 farming done, no new sub in sight yet.

 

Just costs time though with the 3 DD 3 CL setup; no support expeditions required and most repairs are minor and don't need buckets so I'm actually gaining a small amount of resources as I go. And while I work more intel from the front-liners will come in about the other maps :D

Try something like an old-fashioned dictionary? Britannica? or something along those lines. I believe I simply looped around in Warspite videos (linked in this thread) that someone linked it, then got corrected about the accents on top that it's simply scanned in from a book, or something.

 

I'm still being amazed how much of a "sore loser" this RNG is. It just robbed me of another S-Rank by claiming my lovelies couldn't KO a flagship at 10 HP. Knock it off........I'm now #29 tries in (only S-Ranks are counted), and someone recorded a 135+ run (and counting) in trying to fish up I-26. This is just sadistic trolling at this point with the way RNG behaves to cheat & how much you have to sortie to get I-26. I don't expect it to be easy because of new Kanmusu, but holy god damn is it sadistic & sanity breaking. :blink:

That's why I'm going the economy route: I even had 1 red-T run where I beat the boss down to 5 HP. But it was a red-T. I've accepted if I'm going to have a failed run, that's the most likely way.

Holy crap! This RNG drop rate for I-26 is insane. She's just a sub with her value & worth now gradually decreasing in my mind with the more she refuses to be dropped for me. I keep asking "is she really worth this much grief?", which seems so with how much Kadokawa hates submarine Kanmusu. People recorded 135+ sorties, as well as 235 sorties for someone else. That's sanity breaking amounts.....

 

I've had to do mine in chunks for 25 > 41 >61 > 72+
(just for I-26, and each sortie takes roughly 5 to 10 minutes in between for fatigue.)

 

Once Monday hits I'm just going to do E-2 & maybe E3. Screw this stingy RNG crap. :blink: . You should see all the Goya's, Imuya's, & Iku's I fished up. Even one Hachi & 1 Maruyu. It's insane. All, but what I'm after. I'm regaining the whole fleet roster that it's frustrating. Even skipping out on Anime because of how stingy this RNG is......Monday, oh, how I want it to be Monday so I can curse progress some more in E2 & E3. This RNG is just frustratingly worthless and fruitless.

 

Yes, I'm salty. So much time wasted that I wanted to play NMS.

Yeah, I wasn't having any luck either until I found a Mikuma! Not the primary goal, but she was the last Mogami sister I was looking for so I can't be mad about that. And with +30 attempts my patience is wearing thing so I'm switching over to hard mode for the clear and moving on. Nimu and Aquila are available on later maps, though I doubt any would be as easy as E1-Easy.

So I cleared the event. on the final clear, Aquila dropped. So I got Aquila and Warspite at the same time. I have all four new ships now. And now I'm gonna go farm for Libeccio and katsuragi. I'd farm for Graf... if she were in the event. :(

 

All the notable drops I got up to the clear so far.

That's great news!

 

I just cleared E1 yesterday. Got trolled pretty hard on last dance after i had tweaked my fleet comp for hard, but i made it! Mikuma is still my only notable drop, but hopefully not the last!

Still stuck farming for Nimu on my 140th sortie, and still a no-show. I could have easily beaten E-2 & E-3 by now, yet stupidly being stubborn by hanging around E-1 Easy to fish up Nimu using the stupid lottery mentality of "she's just the next drop over. There's only so many tries left". Congrats to Zuri, you've got all the fun ones. Even the lovely Aquila & Warspite, as with Isokaze heh. This RNG is just........what the hell. By the 140th mark (or about 13 hours or so), she should have popped in by now. I really need to shift to E-2 or else I'm going to regret it.

 

I'm just.........baffled by this RNG by how stupid/cruel/harsh it is for making me sortie for 140 S-ranks, yet no Nimu to be rewarded with. I understand I'm on easy, and that it requires effort, yet it just has to give eventually for us to be rewarded by the equal effort we put into it. -_-

 

----

 

Edit: Just got my second Maruyu from E-1 at 141th sortie. :rolleyes:

 

That, and the 'lottery mentality' also being that old-saying of "just one more turn" from Civilization when it was still very fresh & brand new.

If it's any consolation E2 is a breeze even on hard. The land-based air support doesn't even really feel necessary, though it takes the bite out of the pre-boss node and can be used to get a little more damage on the boss (not that you actually need to kill that one, though it did feel good :D)

I gave up on Nimu at 151 sorties. She just doesn't want to be in my fleet, and I just couldn't take it anymore. 11 am to 7:30 pm. That's shitty RNG right there.....I'm just now tearing through E-2 on easy while having my fun tearing bullying the sexy sterned 'Battleship Summer Princess' with her sexy stern. I need progress, and progress is what I'm making now finally. I guess it goes without saying because it's easy yet I don't really need the air squadron in E-2, and I'm glad I don't have to thread any 'eye of the needles' on this damn map. I can just chill as my Kanmusu happily blast away the Abyssals, even bullying the 'battleship summer princess' without hospital worthy stress (last event).

 

I could have been playing NMS & with how i wasted my time I should have. At least I'm knocking out E-2 from the list. I just might be able to taste E-3 to see how stubborn it is.

 

---------

 

Edit:

 

I guess I'll indeed use those bombers finally because E-2's I node is rebelling a bit too much. Kawakaze & Kiso knocked out that I knock the Abyssals down a peg again with two more supply sorties left. :rolleyes:

Was farming on E4 I a lot yesterday. like 35 runs before I ran out of fuel. I was really hoping Libeccio would arrive before running out of fuel. Guess I'll have to stockpile more fuel and then try again in a few days. >.<

I'm still on E3. Had a slightly confusing time where I wasn't sure if I got the debuff working properly and after a few runs decided to make sure I had it. Sure enough, I got the quest tone after one of those debuff runs so I'm prepping to go again!

Good luck on stockpiling that fuel. I'm now starting to see the effects both E-1 & E-3 did to me. You could have also gotten Libeccio the way I did when she was in something like 4-5 in her Halloween outfit. Fun times, fun times. E-2 was fine, yet E-3...... I'm trapped at E-3 unable to hurt the boss that I need my Wednesday & Thursday to knock out E-3 in seriousness. Needing to restructure my fleet, use proper equipment, and just "thread the needle" a bit on this one. Those sexy sterned battleship princess's, then the installation themselves. It's insanely brutal for me currently.

 

- That exposed stern is just asking for you to slap it, and I'm not even following the bandwagon comments about it. It's just.....there. There, to tease. :P

- Obtaining Minazuki is something I needed. Something I needed also in a morale boost to do gain after failing Nimu that E-2's importance raised a bit higher in that regard, so I'm treating it as such. Just "self-propaganda", or something like that.

I have to say that having Minazuki in my fleet is actually awesome, even if she is a DD. Her colorful blue hair giving me something bright to look at, even in expeditions. E-3 though, what a pain in the rear (insert BSP jest) with every sortie taking me just one node further. Took me a bit to go from C > G > H > J. Took me about 8 tries to get to J node after much red, and such. I may need to level Ooyodo, or something. Damn. More "threading the needle" fun when I can't just fire through.

 

Not sure what route I'll take, yet had to go through D Node also to reach J. The struggle. H Node is the worst for me.

Ah yea that debuff is important. I actually cleared E3 before anyone knew there was a debuff there. >.<

Also I just started a couple months ago so i never had a chance to get Libeccio during Halloween. :/

Well, it's hard to say exactly how much of an impact it had it seems to have helped. I was able to dedicate all of my LBAS onto the E3 boss and hardly took any damage from the air raid. Pre-boss battleship princesses still took their toll though: Kongo had to be escorted home after one of them blind-sided her.

 

Still got a boss kill though! It was close though. Here's hoping I reach the boss in better shape from now on and with less clutch plays by Iowa required! (She was at the bottom of my escort fleet and showed that boss the might of America ;p)

E-3 is hell that I'm worried I may not get Aquila & I-26, yet I'll find out by playing around with what you mentioned. With the way my luck has been going I feel I won't be rewarded them, yet hoping my comrade shall help me out tomorrow to tweak things appropriately as I go along. I got the whole day so maybe something shall spin about, or give out, to allow me to gain constant S-Ranks. I was able to tweak it for Pola victory, as well as for the German Graveyard (for Graf), so we'll see if I can adapt to this.

 

It's also a shame Zurichan couldn't get Libeccio when it was much easier to get her, or at the German Graveyard back in winter, or whenever Graf Zeppelin was introduced. Wish you the best on this one as she also has her lovely swimsuit :)

Haha yea. I really was hoping Graf would drop this event. She is the ship i want the most. And the possibility of her appearing was the only thing that motivated me into getting as prepared for the event as I was. :/

 

Also yea E-3 is hell. I cleared it in only 17 battles. But I know people with better fleets than me who spent a lot longer clearing it because RNG. I don't even feel its worth it to farm Aquila there as E-4 is easier and also drops her.

 

I'm back at around 9k fuel currently. I'm probably gonna spend the next few days stockpiling again till I hit my soft cap at 21k and then go for Libe again.

Once i had it figured out and debuffed i consistently s-ranked E3 on normal. Was expensive with a time consuminf setup though.

I'm at the point where I want to say that when a map starts having buffs & debuffs is when its going in a stupid direction. I now just barely managed, on my first sortie today, reach J node for E-3. Just managed to reach it with two orange kanmusu & one yellow that I was able to properly do damage to H Node. Bringing Italia (even though she sent me to 'F' node helped greatly to allow me to hit J node.

 

I'm so glad I split my bombing runs to H & J, yet need another bombing run towards J Node because my fighters are defending the base. Glad I tested PizzaRocket's suggestion. What's pissing me off the most is I couldn't do anything worthwhile to the two bosses. Kawakaze missed with her WG weapons, then got hit to red to fail night battles. I need to re-examine the equipment to get S-ranks, yet can only manage two A-ranks >_>. No worthwhile damages that it's just a little scratch to their health. I once again have to "thread the eye of the needle" that it's just no fun.

 

Bah.

 

----------

 

Edit: Having to do a major equipment swap thanks to my trusty admiral's advice because I'm apparently idiotic when it comes to equipment stats. Damn. Finally also able to do E-3 with S-ranks so that's awesome. I'm just being stupid so now that's sortied I can fun clearing E-3, if it'll allow me to do so. The "threading the needle" lessened, yet it's still there because RNG is silly.
