    You can dodge them. Level is going to matter and you are probably going to want to change your fleet formation to double line. Bringing ships with a healing skill like Arizona or Unicorn or a defensive skill like Portland will help a lot.

    Just got a Minneapolis from building, which was the last of the 4 I was waiting on. I've gotten 2 Washingtons, 2 Marylands, and 1 Colorado and the Minneapolis, just from doing the normal event stages and building 3 to 5 ships per day. Not too shabby. I still have 47 cubes left at the moment, as well.

    I'm up to D1 (having cleared and 3 starred everything before that), which I've completed once, but I'm not sure if I'll press on from there. It wasn't too difficult, per se, but something weird is going on with the boss. I don't know if I ran out of time without noticing, but the first battle I was annihilated right as one of my backline ships went down, but I still had the other 5. I used the free daily heal on that ship and did the battle again with the same fleet, getting an S, so I don't know what the hell happened. I'm content with just auto-battling A1 through B3 each day, I think.

    Preeetty sure. I'm not hearing horror stories about stocking up on steel for months just to overextend during an event and watch my prize bote sink to the depths.

    Was it the ship in the center of your backline? That's the Flagship position and if it goes down you will lose the battle, regardless of the state of the rest of your fleet. That's also why you were able to reform, since you still had other ships that could take up the position.

    Also, Nepneps confirmed for Black Friday!

    Yeah, I have everything else from the event, but I'll probably continue to do my daily stuff for it (1 hard story level, build 3 ships, A1-B3) just to get as much of the loot as I can. I can do all of that on auto-battle, so I typically do it whilst I'm working.

    Also actually making my way through the Hard event stages. I think it's safe to say I won't be getting any S-ranks past C-1 until I can figure out how I'm supposed to dodge Chaser I's torpedo waves.

    In related news, more new stuff is coming with the Nov. 15 patch! Tea Party skins for Ikazuchi, Inazuma and Illustrious. Plus Fubuki and Uzuki are being permanently added to the Construction pools.

    Levels and equipment seem to be pretty huge in this game. My main 2 fleets are all in the 85 to 100 level range with decent equipment (some gold, the rest purple) and I'm able to auto-battle C1 and C2 without a second thought. C3 was tougher just because the sirens' guns rip me open (I actually found D1 easier than C3). I've found with events so far, I just go until I hit a wall and call it good. I wouldn't sweat it.

    And I'm not sure that S ranks are even entirely necessary. They might affect the loot drops (and the daily/weekly missions), but I don't think they affect the clear percentage or anything like that, so as long as you successfully beat the flagship, I think you're good.

    So, here's a dumb question: Azur Lane has become my de facto mobile game (this isn't really something I do, I don't own a 3DS for the same reason)--it's surprising approachable. I've noticed though, since I'm still quite early on in the "story"--I just started Chapter 3, or perhaps Act 3, the third distinct map screen in any case--that I'm only building Eagle Union and Royal Navy ships. I think I got an Iron Blood ship, Prinz Eugen, by chance somehow.

    That's normal, no? I need to progress further to start building the other nations ships in the "story"? Because I'm getting a lot of duplicates in ship generation (which I know isn't an entirely bad thing, with limit breaks and enhancements), but it would be nice to have a wider variety of ships.

    I also find it mildly annoying that I actually have a few ships I can retrofit...but only T2 parts and no T1 parts. But I guess that's what I get for not checking the store often enough.

    My understanding is that ship construction is random from a pool of possible ships. I wouldn't really build ships outside of events, unless there are some rares that you just gotta get. Just running stages should get you a ton of different ship drops. The level you play determines the possible drops. There are lists out there of what drops where, and they have different rarities.

    Retrofits are something they slowly add to ships, I believe. There are only a handful at the moment that have them available. I have a similar problem with item enhancement where I'll have a ton of T2 and T3 blueprints, but no T1. You just have to keep playing getting drops. The daily missions are good sources for those kind of things, especially as you increase in levels.

    I just think the drop tables are balanced towards you getting your Sakura ships from stage drops. They start showing up in greater numbers when you hit World 4. Your Prinz Eugen came from your 7-day Beginner's Daily Login track.

    I've done it twice, on manual. First I beat it with only losing 1 vanguard ship, though another ship was really close to going down. The second time, my flagship went down when the boss was literally 1 or 2 hits away from dying. I had also lost 2 of my vanguard and my other fleet was out of ammo, so I had to retreat. That stung a little, to say the least. I haven't tried again since then, though I probably will before the event ends. 5 victories to clear is pretty rough.

    I'm able to auto S-rank D3 now but when I started I did get the surprise annihilated screens.

    This is what I'm using now. Fleet 2 clears 5/6 enemies and Fleet 1 does one regular and the boss node to make sure it has the 20% ammo damage bonus. I adjust Phoenix to be at the front of the vanguard once I'm in she since basically doesn't die to trash mobs

    The Siren bosses in hard mode have a mini enrage mechanic were they will get a second bar next to their HP bar and a circular meter that starts to fill. If you don't do enough damage to empty the second bar before the circle fills up then it's Touhou time.

    Fleet positions are based on the order you selected them.

    Yeah, that's going to be tough, but possibly doable. My philosophy has been if I'm not enjoying it, I'm not doing it. Once I feel like I'm barely scraping by, I stop and work on something else. I haven't even started stage 6 yet, though I'm probably massively over-leveled for it at this point, because I barely scraped by 5 when I did it.

    My D3 boss killing fleet is only 4 ships. Hood, QE, Belfast, Javelin(partially remodeled). Only really notable equipment is Hood has a +10 T3 Twin 410mm and +9 High Performance Fire Control Radar. Belfast and Javelin have +6 T3 533mm Quintuple Torpedos and Javelin has the rainbow pure oxygen torpedo which is also only +6. You can definitely make up lower levels and equipment by filling in the last 2 spots just save torpedoes to fire them point blank into the bosses when the mini enrage bar shows up.

    Edit: If you can clear D3 then you can probably auto your way through world 8.

    Yep last day to upgrade your gold fire control radar and F4U as much as you can before they get the gold equipment tax. And of course chasing Washington and Minneapolis.
