This really makes me wonder if we might start seeing post WWII ships, since it isn't just limited to ships that have been sunk.
:o

Iowa looks like an adult Hoshii Miki. She looks older. Fuller. Boobs. But seriously, she reminded me instantly of Miki. I wonder how many others feel the same way ...

The Engrish in her character lines is pretty bad though. I get that it's meant to be hur hur Japlish, but the problem is that the words they've chosen to make the Japanese into Japlish aren't words that most native English speakers would've inserted. Take for example:

Quote:
Hi!MeがIowa級戦艦、Iowaよ。Youがこの艦隊のAdmiralなの?いいじゃない!私達のこ ともよろしく!

Hi! It's me, the Iowa-class battleship, Iowa. You are the Admiral of this fleet? Not bad! Take care of us too!
"Me ga Iowa"? ^^; Seriously? "ME TARZAN, YOU JANE!" That's what this sounds like. It should be "I ga Iowa" or some such, not "Me ga."

Likewise:

Quote:
Battle Ship Iowa、Weigh Anchor!
Anchors aweigh. Clearly, they're going for "Anchors aweigh!" But in trying to hur dee dur dur make Iowa out to be someone who speaks no Japanese, all they've ended up doing is forcing her to speak "Stupid Japan! " Engrish instead.

A for effort, C+ for execution from what I'm seeing so far.

This is a brave new world we're entering, though. :o The world ... of American shipgirls in KanColle ... :o MUCH EXCITE!

E3 Transport Gauge
2CAV 4DD (9-10 Drums) + CL 2CA 3DD

Main fleet loaded up with drums, CAVs loaded with Zuiun and two main guns and a drum each.

Searchlight packed on DD at the last slot, preferably a unit for AACI. I had Yukikaze and Shigure prepped for Torpedo CI + Skilled Lookouts, Star Shell on Furutaka and Aoba just sitting around loaded for a mixed CI. Abukuma as standard.

With this fleet, you probably won't be unlucky enough to go to C (a land-based aerial fight), and you'll have to prepare for submarine nodes first and third. Took me about four runs on Easy, so Medium and above should be fine with the nine. Basically I ran three standard runs, fourth was loaded with ASW and AACI on main fleet.

Boss Kill Set Up
2CVL 3BB(V) CA + 2 DD CL 2 CLT FBB

I had RJ and Junyou in the first and second spots of first fleet loaded with torpedo bombers and Reppuu/Shiden to minimise damage taken and maximise damage output. Mutsu and the Fusou sisters had AP Shell set ups or RADAR, Maya in vanguard for AACI.

Second fleet had KTKM, Yukikaze and Shigure all prepped for Torpedo CI, Ooi and Abukuma with the usual, Haruna just in case with AP set up.

You should start at the top of the map in the middle, so head south at the first selection node. 2 Ru Class or 1 Ru + 1 Battleship Princess at first battle, Land-based airfight second, relatively simple after that.

@Talon: You should see our discussion about Iowa on the Skype chat lol. SHE'S REALLY BROKEN.

The Transport section was hell and so far the actual boss part was easy as heck.

Okay E3. Ok.

There's an hour left on the event, but to my misfortune, I couldn't finish it in time. Got to E-3 Boss last dance, with 25 on the gauge. Almost all of my runs were ended on the first BB node, with some unlucky fuck getting knocked to red more times than I can count.

I went from 100 buckets to 3. Absolutely horrible feeling, of being so close, yet just out of reach. Fuel sources tanked too.

I guess it wasn't all bad though, I got an alright amount of ships as drops from the event. Nothing like Pudding mind you, but alright stuff:
Spoiler: show

Kongou
Hiei
Haruna
Kirishima
Mutsu
Suzuya
Urakaze
Makigumo
Asagumo
Akagi
Akigumo
Kiyoshimo
Kumano
Hatsuzuki
Agano
AND LIKE 30 OF THESE


So yeah, while I'm really fucking bummed and all, I guess for an event I didn't prepare for, I did alright.

Still trying to get pudding. Will probably post an aftermath report if I get time.

EDIT: Winter 2016 Event Aftermath
This event was a small scale event, and a pretty easy one at that. Not a pain to farm, got some nice drops and some nice rewards.

I didn't get pudding in the end but I got Amagi, Harusame, Asagumo and Nagato from drops. And a billion ten Mutsu. On top of that Hatsuzuki and Zara are quite cute, and Hatsuzuki's history makes her a very much welcomed member of the fleet.

Lilligant Spring Event Logbook : E-1

  • E-1 CLEARED
  • E-2
  • E-3
  • E-4
  • E-5
  • E-6
  • E-7

E-1 was a fairly easy map. Had some bad luck with the RNG here and there, but it wasn't too bad. Used the 2 FBB / 2 CA(V) / 2 Fast CVL + 1CL 5 DD comp for the North Route to have resources at the boss node, since it's one less fight than the South Route. I'd have to say that the Pre-Boss Node was harder than the boss node itself, honestly. The 3 BB Flag / Elite + Blue Cunt was a nuisance.

Combined Fleet consisted of:

Not going to be doing one of these for every single map completion, only every so often. It's kinda fun to post results, though I think it'll quickly devolve into NaCl gifs.

Kamen Fleet Log: Spring 2016 ALL OUT WAR

E-1 Hard - Cleared
Losses: 31 buckets, 3000 fuel, 2000 ammo, 500 steel, -4000 bauxite, loss of Tomonaga squadron ( ;~;7 ).
[Yes I got 4000 more bauxite than I started with.]

E-2
E-3
E-4
E-5
E-6
E-7

Well that was hell. H Node stands for hell with a CV or BB Hime just sitting there ready to blast the heck out of your fleet. If Crys had hell, I think I walked into it and back. Same fleet set up as Crys, with support shelling to help soften up the HELL NODE.

Naka just destroying the BB Hime and Ru-class was amazing. Also ShouhouZuihou wombocombo.

I think only Agano was a notable drop here for me. I know Taigei is somewhere here but E1 was just hell man.

Fleet info which isn't really useful if you don't know things as is:
Spoiler: show
Main Fleet:
Choukai K - Fleet Command Facility with double guns
Kongou K2 - AP Shell with double guns
Hiei K2 - AP Shell with double guns
Takao K - RADAR with double guns
Zuihou K - Double torpedo bombers with 2 Shiden K2
Shouhou K - Double torpedo bombers with 2 Shiden K2

Escort Fleet:
Hatsuzuki - Anti Air Cut In with double guns
Amatsukaze K - ASW with double guns
Inazuma K - ASW with double guns
Kawakaze K - RADAR with double guns
Ushio K - Skilled Lookouts with double torpedoes
Naka K2 - RADAR with double guns

Support Shelling:
Souryuu K2 - RADAR with double dive bombers and secondary cannon
Hiryuu K2 - RADAR with double dive bombers and secondary cannon
Haruna K2 - RADAR with double guns and AP Shell
Litorrio / Kirishima K2 - RADAR with double guns and AP Shell
Verniy - RADAR with double guns
Ayanami K - RADAR with double guns

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS!? Soo ... the Chinese apparently went and created a Kantai Collection ripoff called Azur Lane (Chinese 碧蓝航线, Japanese アズールレーン). The Internet market is TOO CROWDED, I say, for there to be two anthropomorphized WW2 warships franchises. I'm not about to keep track of two different Akagis, two different Atagos, two different Shoukakus ... But that hasn't stopped the Chinese from saying "FUCK COPYRIGHT! " in classic Chinese fashion and just ... going ahead and making their own mobile phone KanColle without DMM.

Oh so that's what it is. I've seen art on tumblr and had to Google the name since I couldn't figure out what the kana was supposed to say.

Truth be told, the battle system and construction system in Azur Lane is a lot better than KanColle's. The primary negative point of Azur Lane is that it focuses more on fanservice rather than try to hold some form of historical accuracy as KanColle does.

Don't get me wrong, KanColle is loaded with fanservice too (given how it overtook Touhou completely, then competed with Granblue Fantasy and Fate over the last few years). However, it's safe to say that Azur Lane can be called a cheap knock-off of KanColle, it's definitely less wallet damaging after all. KanColle necessitates you forking out some cash as you add more girls to your fleet, while Azur Lane gives you a lot of breathing room with getting resources, crafting and getting characters.
