    My "Finish 8-4" mission for Akashi has been up for over a month at this point and I'm still chewing on Chapter 8, 3-4 Hard, 6-4 Hard and Event Chapter C. I may have to buy gems soon.

    Also, the Saratoga award is not terribly impressive for me now that I already have her.

    CN and JP patchnotes just went up. EN has also confirmed the remaining Devas.

    We, uh... we're in for a helluva ride, boys.

    That is a big patch for being in between major events.

    Servers are back up. There are a lot of buttons on the Events screen.

    The events give out a lot of free stuff, which is nice

    Did like 4 10-pulls and got Yat Sen, Chaser, and Tai Yuan out of the elites, and a bunch of the blue ships on top of our constant companion:

    o3e72bar0xg7.png

    obviously happiest about getting Yat Sen since that completes the trio, so now I just have to retrofit Ping/Ning Hai....and....train all their skills..........................

    Also I retrofit Portland so there's that

    I did a 10 pull and got a Kimberly and a Curlew (and a Sandy), so not too bad of a start.

    Dang, I just realized you have to clear SP3 60 times in a week to get the reward Graf Spee.

  • TNTrooperTNTrooper Registered User regular
    My plan is day 1 clear SP1 and SP2. Day 2-7 beat SP3 10 times. Having a map to grind is nice for the spend a bunch of oil objective for Lunar New Year event too.

    Yeah, that's true. I've cleared SP3 twice so far today, so I guess I'll plan on doing 10 a day, as well.

    Is there any trick to the fighting game event? Or is it just a "do 10 times each day" kind of thing?

  • TNTrooperTNTrooper Registered User regular
    It's just log in every day and use up your attacks.

    I think I lucked out. I've done four "heavy" builds since the event began, and I managed to get a Nelson and a Graf Spee. At least I don't have to worry about the event to get the later!

    Anyone got tips on how to kill Graf Spee before she self destructs?

    bank either torpedos from your frontline or air strikes from your backline to blow her up once her cast bar shows up

    this may be more difficult to do if your ships aren't max level or with fully enhanced gear, since she does pump out a lot of bullets, but if you run a full fleet you should be able to hang on to at least a few cooldowns to put the pressure on once she starts her self-destruct sequence

  • UrQuanLord88UrQuanLord88 Registered User regular
    ah damn there's limited build for the light boats too. I've mostly been spending them on the heavy stuff

    Well that was a fortuitous pull.

    Yat Sen and Tai Yuan and Chang Chun. And Chaser. And a Belfast.

    I'm down to three left: Mullany, Curacoa and Curlew.

    Just finished clearing SP3 for the 60th time. Now if you'll excuse, I'm throwing away my phone.

    My last 10-pull was eight commons, Mullany and Sandy. The Algorithm is no longer in my favor, it seems.

    EDIT: Sandy, Curlew and two Chang Chun. At least she has a cute line when you strengthen/LB her. "When do I get missiles?"

    When you finally get Graf Spee but notice you are at 14/15 quad torpedo BP...

    I still haven't gotten any of the ships pictured on the build screen. I've gotten a bunch of Curlews and Curacaos (and Sandys). I was scared to keep building because I was already having space issues, which made grinding SP3 a pain, but now that I'm done, I can do some more building.

    I'll say it again, I wish I had autoplay for the maps and not just the battles.

    Also, having Hard Mode stages in these smaller events would be lovely, not just to challenge higher-level players but to get the "instant boss nodes" bonus from Threat Levels.

    not gonna lie to you guys

    i'm too lazy to make sure graf spee doesn't blow up when i autobattle her with my low cost 3-ship fleet so i just have 2 cruisers that will survive the blast

    I did Amagi, Graf Zeppelin, and Z23. Most of the time they beat the timer. If not Z23 with the 15% damage reduction could tank it easily.

    Started this recently.

    What is the recommended strategy for leveling ships?

    I’m at 3-2 and have a few ships at ~30 but as I get more units, how do I best level them?

    I’m mostly running 6-ship fleets, but that may not be ideal overall

  • TNTrooperTNTrooper Registered User regular
    Grinding an easier map and putting them in the dorm will be the fastest way. When you aren't playing for a while send them out on longer commissions. Larger fleets just means you are spending more oil but if it's all ships you plan to use it's not a waste. Oh and don't forget to do your PVP exercises even if you get creamed you get exp.

  • UrQuanLord88UrQuanLord88 Registered User regular
    ya the dorm, commissions and pvp felt the fastest for leveling ships to me

    Alright. I’m doing all that, just making sure I wasn’t missing something I guess

  • IanatorIanator Gaze upon my works, ye mighty and facepalm.Registered User regular
    I have not kept up on my SP3 runs to get Graf Spee.

    Decided to do a 10-pull on Heavy Construction.

    FREAKING HOOOD at #8.

    Happy surprise at #10.

    My day is saved.

    Since I need some levels for chapter 3, is it worth farming for Rodney and Nelson?

    they are solid battleships with a decent barrage (although low proc chance) who are kept in the game by Queen Elizabeth being an incredibly strong buff unit to all HMS ships, but eventually you will phase them out because the power creep in Battleships is real

    that being said, if you're just starting out, they're going to perform better than a lot of your current options. I don't know that i would specifically try to "farm" them though since it's more likely you'll accidentally build one or both of them in the process of doing daily builds for Hood or other superstars, or they will drop in the process of you grinding xp

    Also, is it worth leveling Elizabeth’s skill to buff HMS units?

    It seems like it could be solid with Leander and other cruisers as well as HMS backline units. On the other hand I’ve seen things like that turn out to be huge newb traps.

    QE's skill is basically the anchor for all HMS fleets because while she's fairly unremarkable otherwise, a 15% buff to all relevant stats to herself and 5 other HMS ships is statistically amazing, esp since HMS has strong Battleships (although we don't have all of them yet), decent carriers, and a fairly well balanced frontline selection. Not only is it an offensive buff in buffing both aviation/firepower/torpedo and reload, it shores up defense by increasing evasion and AA.

    Oh, and did I mention it stacks with other support buffs since it's not considered one of the generic "command" support skills?

    Fun fact there are so few SSRs in light construction their individual drop % is higher then getting a specific elite.
