If you start now you'll have time to get the hang of things before next month's event. You'll be nowhere near ready to clear it but if it's anything like the Fall event the first few maps will be super easy and offer good ships. And a lot of the game is luck based and they keep making it easier to get old ships so you could catch up faster than you think. Just remember to be patient.

Probably not worth bothering, events are stressful and that is a bare minimum, there's always a chance that you get unlucky.

Fall E4 wasn't in fact an insurmountable wall for everyone, people have reported clearing it with ~10k resources. But then there were some unlucky sods that went through 50k resources and still failed to do it.

In addition, that's just a rough guess. The event may turn out to be more sadistic than anyone expected.

The biggest problem is simply time. Sitting there for 10 - 15 hours at best and a few days at worst with every run slowly whittling down your resource count is tiring and stressful. There are periods of time where you make no progress and you're stuck watching your previous sink of the boss disappear.

I really hope they've realized how stupid and restrictive regenerating health bars are. I couldn't clear E-5 last time because I ended up having a medical emergency partway through that took a few days to resolve. I'd rather they massively amp up the difficulty of the maps so even if you fail to sink the boss even once over a few days, your progress at least doesn't vanish. Or just require a fuckload of sinks. There are a bunch of ways to make up for the loss of regenerating health. The Arpeggio event gave a preview with fucking carnival lasers.

>> No.11979973

>>11979969
>Or just require a fuckload of sinks.
I'd prefer this. At least you'd feel like you're making progress instead of getting wrecked right out the gate on an impossible map. And then bring back chip damage, since nothing's more frustrating that leaving a sliver of health and wasting the entire run. But regeneration does no one any favors. There's a reason why everyone abused the pre-fight dialogue exploit.

>> No.11979976

>>11979973
I'd concede the loss of chip damage if they get rid of regenerating health. Fuck that shit. I'd rather LSC for years.

>> No.11979978

>>11979969
One issue I can see with this is that the easiest way to remove gauge regeneration is to force kills to reduce the bar, as in Arpeggio maps, and getting boss kills is exceedingly difficult in event maps. Had Fall E4 or E5 required multiple clean kills instead of boss chipping followed by a single gauge break run, it would probably be harder rather than easier. I for example only ever got a single kill on E5, and two on E4, over some 50k resources spent.

I agree that regenerating gauges are irritating in and of themselves, but if they are to go, they better not take the gauge chipping mechanism with them.

Force kill is fine for <200hp and <100ish armor, but for 500hp it would make it much harder and even more luck dependent considering that it would all come down to firing order.

That's why I'm asking. I just got 4th sub and after really long looking at pvp list, subs there are usually in echelon, Same goes to sorties with abbys. So I thought it was major fact when running them.

>> No.11980831

PVP formations are made automatically, if you have a sub flagship you automatically take echelon. That doesn't mean it's the best. I always use line ahead when doing 2-3 sub runs personally.

>> No.11980836

>>11980829
with subs you just go line ahead. Not sure why the game puts subs into Echelon, it's not good for subs. But generally, formations do matter for subs, too. Just that most options aren't good choices due to low torpedo accuracy.

I think they're in echelon or line abreast just so you'll have an easier time sinking them, because if they were in line ahead their pre-emptive torps will screw you over before you even get a chance to kill them.

Whether it was part of the subs nerf or not I don't know, because subs (both enemy and ally) were monstrously OP before they got nerfed.

Just use line ahead for subs anyway, since they'll be the most useful in line ahead.

Didn't really notice how much the difference between using 3 sonars and using 2 sonars 1 depth charge was, but it does seem to have a slight difference. For both the damage done against flagship subs can range from 40s during head-on engagement or as high as 60s during green T.

I first noticed this difference when I was training spare KitaOoi pairs at 5-1 (they're still too paper for practical use at this point). Each of them had a type 93 sonar at the first slot and a type 94 depth charge in the second. For the 2 CLs I brought in my first fleet that I didn't put as flagship, I switched the sonar and depth charge. At the point of testing, the levels and base ASW for the 4 ships were close in number. Of course, the flagship I wanted to grind would have superior equipment, and I didn't forget the obligatory BBV as well.

So what happened was the KitaOoi pair usually did less damage to, say, a normal sub, than a CL with swapped equipment would do to the same target. Of course, the RNG would sometimes cause them to steal the MVP anyway, but it was a rarer case than either CL doing so, even assuming none of them participated in the second shelling phase. The damage difference per target was around 5-10 on average. Maybe 6 or 7.

On another note, while doing 1-5 runs I found the 2nd of 4 slots particularly vulnerable to attack from the first node. Is this just RNG as well?

It might be placebo, but I find that pumping extra of certain resources could increase my chances of getting better equips. For example, putting 300 ammo instead of 251 in the 46cm recipe seemed to yield more 46cms, and 21/60/20/131 yielded more holos than 20/60/10/110.

Its Kai I got one from either 20/60/10/100 or 20/60/10/110, I forgot. Maybe the first one. But it also gave almost 80% Tenzans and almost 20% Ryuuseis. At least with 21/60/20/131 the ratio was around 60/40.

It's been more than 2 weeks since it last gave me a holo plane (I didn't count the 2 Type 62 fighter bombers since they were shit).

Also, while not unintentionally, but I sank around 3 dozen destroyers during desperate E-4 scraping during the fall event. All for nothing too as I couldn't get the final E-4 kill over the final 2 weeks of the event. I'm a horrible person.

It seems having Z1/3 flag nerfs the Yamato/Bismarck chance; if you craft 4/6/6/2 non-flag it's about 15-16% Yamato and really small bismarck%, but if you craft 4/6/6/2 with Z1/3 flag it becomes like 15-17% Bismarck and <5% Yamato (I assume Musashi will be <5% as well), so it's pretty unlikely Yamato/Musashi would drop from it if you are crafting for Bismarck

The way I see it, Midway will either be so painful that it's better to do the easier maps and wait for the top prize ships to be available in LSC, or it won't be as hard as we feared and will be doable with the resources you gather during the event period.

What? Shimakaze is weaker than Yuudachi, what are you talking about? Sure, Shimakaze can tank more and her torp stat is slightly higher, but DDs are all shit at tanking and torp stat by itself only applies to torpedo phase. Yuudachi is objectively the best DD in day battle, and she beats Shimakaze at night as well.

Nah, that anon is right.

Ship slots are by far the least likely thing they would give for free, simply because it's the only thing that's not actually optional if you want a complete collection. Everyone reaches the point where they either spend money or start scrapping their own ships. Giving away free space is basically making themselves lose that 1000 yen they could have gotten. The best part is that once someone spends money to buy one harbor expansion, they're much more likely to do it again. You just need to get them past that one hurdle. The fact that some players want more harbor space badly is the exact reason why it would be foolish of them to give it out. Eventually they'll crack.

By comparison, furniture is just cosmetic.

I generally never even do the boss daily unless I'm running 2-3 anyway (20 carrier weekly mainly) and getting boss victories is just a side effect. When I was desperate for the bauxite reward back while LSC'ing Taihou I just used 2-2 with 2 CVL and 4 SS or 4 DD and a lot of F5'ing.

Midway is supposed to be harder than the Fall event, so bump these to 60k/500 and you'll probably be fine.

Equipment/ship levels might be a more decisive factor, though, since Fall E4/E5 didn't really require support expeditions and high-level ships. People with enough 46cms and holo bombers to outfit two support fleets will probably have an easier time.

You can never save enough. Even if you breeze through the event you can't account for your shit luck with drop only ships.

It doesn't explain why would people use support fleet composition like in >>11984977 though.

>> No.11985207

>>11985200
Reason is because less than 3 CV(L)s defaults you to normal support shelling instead of the bauxite consuming aerial shelling. So stocking 2 CVLs with 4 Suisei 12As for support shelling allows you to save on ammo and fuel since they can do Yamato-tier damage in the shelling phase due to how their damage calculations are made.

As a result, the best way to go would be 2 BBs 2 CVLs 2 DDs.

She'll at least be able to launch at orange, considering she was the only other carrier with an armored flight deck. The IJN wanted to use her for support so most of her hangar space was devoted to carrying reserve aircraft and supplies but she had room for about 170 planes on board. Her luck will probably be 1 or 0 considering how ridiculous the circumstances of her sinking were, but luck hardly matters to carriers. Since she's the final reward of an event like this they won't make her weak.
