God, how can you fuckers decide who to marry. I just got the marriage quest, and my highest level is Hiei at 75(By far my favorite, and not to mention luckiest ship by far right now) but I'm hesitating so much.

Is 2 1/2 weeks of playing too soon to decide? Hiei is awesome. Kiso is great. So is Tenryuu. Mutsuki's super adorable, Tatsuta's voice... ect. Nearly the entire cast is extremely adorable or attractive. Even if you narrow it down to just the tomboy/short hair girls, it's still impossible.

How can you judge this? Time spent? Favorite ship? Favorite voice? Instinct? Tryhard scum so you marry Musashi or Yamato?

There's nothing wrong with marrying Yamato. She's one of the prettiest ships in the game and is voiced by Taketatsu Ayana.

If you're really tryhard then you marry a Kongou class or Kaga/Taihou/Hiryuu. Unless the devs suddenly start favoring slow ships then those ships will always have the most utility. Yamatos are strong enough already without the stat boost too.

Most people get into the game because of one ship and marry her or just marry their starter.

>> No.12218879

>>12218874
>Most people get into the game because of one ship and marry her or just marry their starter.
This.
People either marry their starters because they prefer long time partner, or marry the ship that helped them cleared the events as the reward for her effort, or marry their most favorite ship out of the bunch.
Usually there is a combination of 2 and 3, but 1 isn't uncommon.

I'm rather indecisive if I know I haven't seen everyone's voice/art. Then again, I know I'm not the type to regret either. So once I make my choice I wouldn't care at all. But I always worry beforehand if I know I haven't exhausted my options.
>>12218874
Yeah, quite a few people go after Kongou, Kaga, Akagi, Murakumo, ect. I've seen two brothers who've gone for Hiei and Kiso as well. The love for tomboys is strong... I'm honestly stuck between Hiei, Pirate Murasa, and Tenryuu(I started this game for her). I'll probably run with Hiei or Kiso. Hiei's dialogue shows her as a siscon and I'm an adamant yurifag, so there goes that.

I did a few 3-2-a sorties and even with air superiority I sometimes lost up to 40-60 planes (around 20 on average). Considering how exp 6 only gives 80 per 40 mins, it doesn't seem very resource efficient to me.

Bringing along two BBs for PvP doesn't always guarantee B rank or higher, and it costs around 130 ammo and fuel, which takes much longer to replenish than 20 bauxite. The higher raw exp makes up for that with most other ships, but for carriers you'll never get MVP and S-rank is far from guaranteed.

I don't really understand how air combat works to be honest. Wiki briefly explains what each type of plane does, but doesn't really go into detail what kind of setups would be best for different situations.

I also don't know what determines how much baux you lose. Is it just the amount of AA enemy fleets have that determines plane loss? Or are certain plane types more susceptible to AA so they get shot down easier or something?

How does using only torpedo bombers use less baux than having fighters or dive bombers in 3-2-a?

Nagato and Mutsu still have better armor, and firepower and AA than the Kongo Kai-ni, sans Kirishima.
Same amount of fuel wasted too. Only reason why you would use fast ships over slow is due to branching rules.
Yamato and Musashi still lack an actual need for Kai-ni.

My fucking sides.

Nah, armour and HP are shit for DDs, they can't take a hit anyway. What's important are firepower, evasion, torpedo and luck stats. Firepower for day battle. Night battle requires firepower and torpedo stats, and maybe luck stat depending on the setup (cut-in needs luck, double attack doesn't). And evasion for dodging stuff, which is also very important for DDs.

If you want, AA might come into use too, but that's about it for important stats for DDs.

Cuteness is subjective. Evasion I'll give you that. But torp stat is not as useful as firepower. In fact even where they're useful, Yuudachi can deal more damage at night than Shimakaze can. Ayanami only trails Shimakaze by 1 point.

From the looks of it, you're going purely by evasion.

Because that was her mission. Destroy the british convoys while being able to take on any ship from the Royal Navy 1 on 1. She had the bad luck of being hit with a torpedo on her helm, which was what sealed her fate. Otherwise, she'd have been a real headache for the Royal Navy due to her incredible autonomy, speed and firepower.

There aren't many huge naval battles like in the Pacific, and even fewer that had capital ships engage each other. the German navy in WWII was far from the powerhouse that enabled it to fight in battles like Jutland from WWI. Naturally, this lead to much smaller engagements. The few times that the capital ships did engage each other were strategically important set pieces like Denmark.

Also unlike the Germans, Japan did not adhere to its treaties as the Germans did. The Washington Naval Treaty was renounced long before the start of hostilities between the IJN and USN, while the Anglo-German Naval Agreement was renounced only half a year before WWII started in Europe.

You pretty much answered your own question. Bismarck is the hardest currently buildable ship to obtain, and she's at the level of ships that drop from non-boss nodes in early maps. She also has higher consumption than the Kongous and requires a blueprint to reach her full potential for no particular reason.

So they make your ass off to get her, and she's supposed to be the pride of the German navy the same way Yamato was the pride of the Japanese navy, and it turns out there's pretty much no reason to use her over the easily obtainable Kongous.

There were some crazy ship design during the XIX and beginning of the XX century because most of the innovations were theorical. There wasn't a single major naval engagement since the Napoleonic era with the exception of the battle of Lissa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Lissa_%281866%29) which started the ramm craze on ironclads, which in the end proved to be useless.

If you want flying saucers, a functional one was built for WWII. It was called Vought V-173 and for all its awkwardness, it was a surprisingly effective plane design.

Still less weird than the Russian gliding tank.

Midway isn't included with Pacific. Midway also has a bigger US campaign than Pacific, but no Japanese campaign in return. Gameplay is largely the same, and the graphics are worse, of course. But if you wanna play multiplayer and take advantage of a more active modding community, Pacific is the way to go.

Speaking of Pacific, if someone has the Mac version of it, would they be so kind as to upload the .mpak files for English (Authentic VO)? The PC version is missing them, so we can't use that setting and are forced to listen to shitty voiceovers that are supposed to pass for a Japanese accent.

It's been a long day, so I don't understand the exact wording of your question and chose to answer everything that has to do with it!

Everyone speaks plain English on the regular English setting, of course. Americans sound like... Americans. But I honestly don't know how someone could screw up so badly with Engrish as Eidos does. I mean fuck, Call of Duty even got it right!

With English (Authentic VO), the Japanese actually speak in Japanese, and it's great. IMO, the game dialogue should have been that way from the game's release, instead of coming with a later patch shortly before the developers died. It's because Eidos no longer exists that it's so hard fixing this problem.

That all being said, it's not really gamebreaking; I'm just a little autistic when it comes to audio.

Sorry for taking your time, but thanks for explaining what you meant!

I did get an earful of the Engrish VOs in the demo's skirmish mode and I have to agree-it should've been Japanese from the start. Even without subs, it would've been better than hearing that god-awful accent.

And hey, it's /jp/, we're all autists.
