I wonder if she'll become Shiratsuyu with that number one statement...

My Fubuki's sitting at LV44 at my docks.....

Prithvi
01-01-2015, 05:25 AM
Well I guess it's time to start training her even though I just finished training up a few other DD's/CL's. Well it's back to 4-3 once EO's are done.

HydraGoliath

Mine is ready, she'll probably be ~80 by the 9th.

finally my fubuki has been waiting since last year for her kai ni

HydraGoliath
01-01-2015, 05:37 AM
SanaNoHana Peth

I'd been using her as an Expedition ship since last year as well. I've been leveling on and off her since the first announcement after the Fall '14 event.

iamablocker
01-01-2015, 05:40 AM
Aahh yes fubuki...

Aka the starter ship that rarely drops for me. Heck even murakumo and samidare have higher drop chances for me.

orz

Yamako
01-01-2015, 05:42 AM
iamablocker Fubuki is a tier 3 rarity ship. She's harder to get than the other starters.

Peth
01-01-2015, 06:00 AM
HydraGoliath Cheater. Not supposed to level it any outside of expeds.

Wait what?

Wa ga Fubuki is level 67. Leveling her casually with daily 1-5 runs.

mimasho
01-01-2015, 07:05 AM
Yay, so excited ! * U *
Fubuki was my starter and is one of my favorite DDs ~
So glad I actually use her ; U ; she even participated in the fall event haha ~

DEVS YOU HEAR ME

Honze
01-01-2015, 09:06 AM
Cheers for Fubuki, but I'll keep from levelling her until they show the last myoukou and MC kai ni stats and equips.

Eternalism
01-01-2015, 09:12 AM
Standardizing my fleet to lv 70 now. Hopefully my lv 70 Fubuki is enough.

Magnius
01-01-2015, 09:27 AM
Well my Fubuki is in the base at level 1. Hello 4-3, it's time for us to spend some time together again.

Argho
01-01-2015, 10:26 AM
I guess I should be glad another crappy K2 art will go to ship I don't even keep. Hopefully quota will be met with it and Nachi K2 will look good.

Makoto Yuki
01-01-2015, 10:55 AM
is that really the Kai Ni Art?

if so. . . Devs. . . the hell are you doing?!

they need to get their eyes checked.

Honze
01-01-2015, 10:59 AM
wildarms

It might be too plain for some, but at least it ain't the mostruosity Ryuujou kai was.
That one really needed some Quality check before being released.

And Fubuki basically is plainness made flesh, so that should be her distinctive tract, isn't it?!

Makoto Yuki
01-01-2015, 11:04 AM
Honze it's not the plainness, it looks more like a downgrade in my eyes.

it looks like she was painted using oil paint.

Lycanous
01-01-2015, 11:07 AM
welp, it's time to quit the game.

Ryuuoh DeltaPlus

Honze it's not the plainness, it looks more like a downgrade in my eyes.

it looks like she was painted using oil paint.

You may be too used to seeing super-detailed digital art, that's why you can't appreciate the simple beauty of shibafu's art....

Makoto Yuki
01-01-2015, 01:17 PM
Ryuuoh DeltaPlus if anything, Fubuki "now" is better than that.

I like all of the CVs he drew as well, and Hyuuga.

Lycanous What this now ? xD

Yarizui
01-01-2015, 08:14 PM
Unless she has rare equips, I am not going to grind her... too lazy to do so

kuavera
01-01-2015, 08:16 PM
Ahh yes finally, my Fubuki is so ready, Shibafu's kai nis are always great.

blazeLimit
01-01-2015, 10:53 PM
Hmm, I'll have to put her back on expeditions, if her new art is great she'll have to come back to the main fleet, only time will tell

Sixpack
01-01-2015, 11:30 PM
Eh, I am busy with Hiei and Kirishima and Kimono comes after that, maybe going to leech her up when I set Kimono to work.

rally9981
01-03-2015, 12:51 PM
Fubuki, finally! Wonder how the manga is gonna handle this one :P . Btw she's already 70 so i should be able to get her to kai ni right away. Even if the dev decides to set a new bar for DD, i'll be only a few lvl away.

DDX chan
01-03-2015, 02:01 PM
i guess its time to hunt for a fubuki

Main Character Kai Ni on my birthday?

It must be fate.

sombrely
01-03-2015, 11:40 PM
Guess to be safe must grind to 70... She's sitting at lvl 60, so I think it's doable by next Friday :shimakaze_grin:

01-04-2015, 05:58 AM

Fubuki~ns get in line. No cutting in. Yes riight after the violet head over there.

Hmm? Wazzat? You're the main character?

Preposterous. Simply madness.

Argho
01-04-2015, 06:25 PM
if her new art is great she'll have to come back to the main fleet Yeah... surely. Expect a headband and damaged art without any change.

Leyana
01-04-2015, 10:20 PM
So level 70?

Please no more of those 'no smile' headbands.

Prithvi
01-05-2015, 01:30 AM
Leyana We can only hope, but best not to really. At the very least, it'll be a nice surprise if it turns out good.

HydraGoliath
01-05-2015, 01:30 AM

But no smile headband remodels are the best.

Leyana
01-05-2015, 01:32 AM

I get rid out of here few times now I cant get my hand of that biatch :P wont have her for the patch I guess <_<

Leyana
01-05-2015, 02:19 AM
AnIh That must be some luck. 1-1 drops her like candy.

dranzerstar
01-05-2015, 03:37 AM
patch is so lacking, so little content, so minimal.

HydraGoliath
01-05-2015, 03:52 AM
dranzerstar

Fubuki Kai Ni is all the content we need.

Yamako
01-05-2015, 04:17 AM
kuavera I disagree. Although Hiryuu's Kai Ni stats and gears are epic. Her art turns her from cute smiling CV to potato-face serious CV.

AnIh
01-05-2015, 04:41 AM
Leyana did tried this one thanks for the advice

ogorhan
01-06-2015, 07:05 AM
I'd like to see Tenryuu get kai ni in the future.

Zaidou
01-06-2015, 07:18 AM
Maybe she will get a headband with a smiley face on it while being serious ? :V

Honze
01-06-2015, 08:13 AM
Zaidou

Being an anime advertising kai ni, she shouldn't change that much from her normal art.
Otherwise newcomers from the anime would start saying " Da fuk?! Why their Fubuki is different from mein?!".

Zaidou
01-06-2015, 08:49 AM
Honze She can act the same while LOOKING serious!, its like i thought my Poi would be more badass but she still Poi on the inside;V

Argho
01-06-2015, 08:59 AM
dranzerstar Well, patches around Fall event were so packed they had to run out of content to throw in with this remodel. Devs have some really shitty pacing when it comes to it.

Kago
01-06-2015, 09:25 AM
I don't know why you guys are still speculating about Fubuki's Kai 2 art. Dev has pretty much spoiled us all with that Febri mag cover already. Well, unless they decide that they want to one-up us and just make the Kai 2 art something completely different.

By the way, a new server is incoming. Saiki/Saeki bay? I'm not sure what the right way to read them kanjis is. :S

Leyana
01-06-2015, 10:04 PM
Kago Because some people want to exercise their creativity. Speaking of which, I haven't seen Fubuki Kai Ni tuna art yet.

Akuser
01-07-2015, 01:10 AM
Yep, just hope dev dont chage her face, just change her style, her pose, her clothes.... but plz leave that serious face :D
I'm very disaponted about lost Hiryuu smile and Ushio cry baby.

Zikrayrus
01-08-2015, 06:05 PM
The exciting wait continues! What will Fubuki be like? :V Dreadfully bad or dreadfully good?

Personally, I doubt 'll be affected much. I have been fairly agreeable/neutral with most if not all Kai Ni changes.

But here is hoping its something that everyone can agree on in goodness. She is 1st Toku after all. And uh... MC if it comes down to using that card :V

Anyways, Time as of now? 8 Hours.

chronomeister

Damn! Screw Ashigara, Furutaka, and Haruna for the meantime. I. MUST. KAI. NI. FUBUKI!

Edit: Looks like my decision to select her as my starter ship certainly paid off. Now, gonna grind her a couple of hours later.

mimasho Don't worry you're not alone, I forgot also. Not to mention I will need dev mats to LSC someday so I farm those daily quests but not very well and I totally forgot about that maintenance day.

So Fubuki will get some awesome stats if her Kai Ni needs blueprint? Can't wait to see her Kai Ni. Do they often give kai ni to kanmusu?

Owen
01-09-2015, 05:34 AM
Wait, has it been confirmed she needs blueprint?!

my sentiments exactly... I was planning to grab 1-5 and hopefully 2-5 this month so next month I can Kai Ni someone who needs a blueprint... if Fubuki needs one... I'm going to be so torn between who to Kai Ni then

it'll also flush my plans to level all the DDs with Kai Ni :kongou_dot:

She gotta be way OP to deserve my first blueprint. Else, it will go for my Tone.

panda
01-09-2015, 06:11 AM
No mention in the tweets of anything regarding her needing a blueprint. That being said, if she does and has a high remodel level, it'd make it easier on me, since I wouldn't have to worry about getting her to kai ni for a while.

Laisy
01-09-2015, 06:44 AM
Oh a small piece of her kai ni art is here.

Pantsu! Pantsu!

Honze

So far no official information on blueprint.
Let's see if she ends up coming with some special type destroyer equipment.

Fubuki smiles at you plainly and proceed to slit the unaware fool's throat

I've done nothing like that, so I'm not worried, but I've warned my friend, who does tons of Orel with macros.

Nah, they banned Kanco tools for the english translation fork bothering the servers, so it should be safe

KC3 is fine.
There was another third party with a similar name.

what are the map for new quests again? Which maps do they want us to visit?


FYI update 9 is 'botting' and 'cheating'
KC3 or KCV is not a bot/cheat program.
you can learn to make one if you want (and get banned)

Oh dear lord, thank you for answering, I thought I got the axe.



By the way, how is this new "anti-piracy" law affect us VPNers?
Example, if some server has over, say 20 sessions. Will there be a greater risk than usual of using that server since they might ban you for multi-accounting?

Just use the cookie method, as described in the wiki (http://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Tutorial:_Proxy_Connection)

Been using the VPN method since I got the acc. , and I knew about that method, but that one seemed more risky. Well, whatever, might as well give it a go, it's way faster than VPN anyway.

the riskiest method is VPN coz server might flag you w/ multiple account

Yeah, I mentioned that.
Well, to be fair, all methods are risky, but we gotta pay the price if we want our daily fix of Kancolle.

@komarEX (http://www.himeuta.net/members/komarex/) If it or you got banned you'd see a white screen and nothing but black kanji, a network error is most likely just a network error.

Lately I'm getting the greyed out pages on KC3 due to "network errors" and "could't access web" or sort. And some more cat screens.
Don't worry, it just happens.

Not that risky, but cookie method is better.
And faaar easier.

Wanted to renew my API link but I'm kinda scared going VPN and then get it in the game page cuz of the comments in this thread. So did anyone got banned yet with that method?As for Fubuki Kai Ni probably gonna get her remodel for the collection.

Honze
01-09-2015, 12:36 PM

Cookie method then. (http://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Tutorial:_Proxy_Connection)
Also new API is not needed for the maintenance.

Also, nobody has been banned, why all of this fear?

Magnius
01-09-2015, 12:39 PM
KCV still doesn't interfere with the server and is therefore undetectable
API is still safe
VPN's safeness hasn't changed
Cookie method hasn't changed


Unless you're using shady alternatives to KCV or actually botting there's nothing to be scared of.

I hope the dev will be able to address that 2k9 guy. Mister えっじ used to score even higher than the current 1st, but this month he has visibly slowed down for some reason.

The whole "script / bot detecting" thing is the same as always. Scare tactic to keep people playing legit. The really smart botters they will never be able to catch anyway.

The mahjong table is nice, being able to improve the sonars is a good thing.
That's all there is to this update for me.

I was expectiong an announcement for the next event, though.

Glorius Fubuki kai ni, other than that nothing of great importance. Since i play with the region cookie method and don't use any addons, the ban scare shouldn't really concern me. That's what i hope at least.

Alright, stupid question. Someone in the comments here said we don't need a new API link for this update. Is that the case? When all exactly DO we need a new API link? I was under the impression that we needed one at the start of each month (because of the extra operations) and after each update. So now I am confused.

velocius
01-09-2015, 07:58 PM
Katze this is what people sometimes call a hot update. technically, all the data was already in the game since the last normal update. they just ticked a flag in the database that allows us to see the data.

Argho
01-09-2015, 08:49 PM
Katze It's advised to get new API after each update just to be safe. You need it only for EO and events. Connecting to VPN, logging to DMM and fetching a new API takes a minute so I don't see any reason not to do it after each update.

Katze
01-09-2015, 09:23 PM
Argho I was mostly asking out of curiosity, but right now I'm at my parents' house and their internet isn't the best. Most things work fine but connecting to VPN and getting a new API link can take a while here. With my normal internet, yeah, it only takes a minute. But here? Ehhh, it's nice to be able to not worry about it this time.

Argho
01-09-2015, 09:25 PM
Katze I guess you can edit region cookie and play from DMM site without API instead: Tutorial: Proxy Connection - Kancolle Wiki (http://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Tutorial:_Proxy_Connection#Option_3:_Editing_DMM_C ookie.27s_Region_Flag)

When I play, or well, used to play, only time I needed to refresh API link was for monthly extra op resets.
