Oh so they aren't suppose to be so OP. Someone accidentally feed them steroid or something?

Oh thank the six. If this gets fixed, farming S Ranks for Prinz is pretty much a cakewalk.

11-20-2015, 10:04 AM
Sigh, second really half assed event. It's not like they are jumping on devs out of nowhere, you could expect they have enough time to prepare. This time they couldn't even be bothered to slap the right icon on boss gauge in E1...

11-20-2015, 10:11 AM
All the admirals during the event be like:


At least I didn't encountered them all the way down to E-3. Now, the waiting game is starting...

11-20-2015, 10:18 AM
I hope they don't break those Abyssal abortions even further...

11-20-2015, 10:22 AM
damn... already cleared E-5 on easy ... if they made those little PTSDs weak to the point of i could have done E-5 on hard... idk..
welp.. if they do decide to nerf those. easy farming arashi ~

11-20-2015, 10:24 AM
Ha ha ha ha ha. Devs, devs.

If only you realized that sooner before there were people clearing E-5 left and right...

So I suppose the reason I was able to S-rank my E-5 last dance was pure hax on my side, huh?

dranzerstar Should I be worried about getting booted if it's just a hotfix?

11-20-2015, 10:46 AM
Emerald Acid Most likely won't, but it may cause bugs and glitches, so better don't play during that period.

11-20-2015, 10:48 AM
Emerald Acid its a live patch, just halt sorties in area with PT boats

11-20-2015, 10:50 AM

Give me my buckets back. GIVE THEM BACK!

On the bright side, farming shouldn't be problematic anymore.

dranzerstar Laisy Aight, thanks both. I actually just killed two more when the Mentions alert popped up, so I have a couple mins before morale is back. Will wait for fix.

Also lets my salt levels lower a bit since I'm still not getting any drops from S Ranks...

11-20-2015, 10:57 AM
Spent almost the whole day searching for Prinz.
While I did get her, I spent a gooood hour on stream ranting about how the PT boats had to be bugged.

I even gave my Amatsukaze two Type 33 Radars and 1 main gun because I recalled the devs saying DDs would be great against them.
No matter how much accuracy I pumped into my DDs, they just never could hit a PT boat.

It all makes sense now D;<


Prinz, you were worth it ; ^; . . .

11-20-2015, 10:57 AM
All those buckets wasted!!!! I've lost at least 20 - 50 buckets from KO's from those demon children :(

And that's just E3!!

Wind Sorry to make this off topic, but I really have to ask out of worry: were yu using Bismarck (or any of the Kriegsmarine ships) while looking for her? I'm majorly paranoid about a pre-event note that implied that Prinz would only be farmable "with a certain fleet".

@Wind (http://www.himeuta.net/members/13029-wind/) Sorry to make this off topic, but I really have to ask out of worry: were yu using Bismarck (or any of the Kriegsmarine ships) while looking for her? I'm majorly paranoid about a pre-event note that implied that Prinz would only be farmable "with a certain fleet".

Nope! My fleet consisted of Nagato, RJ, Junyou, Haruna, Kirishima, Suzuya, Amatsukaze, Hatsushimo, Hiei, Kongou, Abukuma, and KTKM.

My only hope was opening airstrike from RJ and Junyou as well as opening torp from Abukuma and KTKM to kill those damn things...
Out of over 20 runs I think I only S ranked a little over 10.

PTSD boats...

11-20-2015, 11:06 AM
inb4 people who managed to kill them regularly while they were broken get banned for hacking

11-20-2015, 11:09 AM
Imagine if one of the bosses is a PT boat lol

Wind Ok, thanks a bunch. I've been majorly stressing, as I've been farming E-4 M for over two hours now, and I've been consistently S Ranking the node without getting any drops from it whatsoever. I was beginning to think that implication was real, and it was really screwing with my morale. Major weight off my mind if we have a confirmed Pudding find without Biscuit.

And now back to the originally topic'd thread.

11-20-2015, 11:10 AM
ofi123 please for the love of god don't go there please!

11-20-2015, 11:21 AM
BAM. Instant difference.


11-20-2015, 11:21 AM
I think we need unveil these features added to Kancolle (since 2014?), w/o an annocement:
1. delay every update (confirmed)
2. bonus days for every events (confirmed)
3. hidden bug in every events (not confirm yet)

11-20-2015, 12:36 PM
Oh devs. Sometimes I wonder if they even test the game.


It's not like they banned people who brute-forced AA hime.

11-20-2015, 02:59 PM

11-20-2015, 05:40 PM
Holy crap, they nerfted them really good. Now E-3 is alot easier now that I can use BBVs and not have to worry about node E. Too bad they implemented it a little too late since i'm almost done with E-3, but I guess it will make farming more easier

11-20-2015, 06:51 PM
Good news, i'm still outside the event cuz girl limit ;(

11-20-2015, 09:14 PM
Oh, hell... I want my 20k ressources back and 130 buckets used because of these little *******... I already cleared the event before the patch was applied. :kongou_wat:

11-20-2015, 09:45 PM
... Event timeframe extension when?

11-21-2015, 02:28 AM
LOL... I don't even... Do the devs ever test this stuff? Glad it got fixed, and my sympathies to those who had to deal with this bug.

@dranzerstar (http://www.himeuta.net/members/18-dranzerstar/): Thanks for the update.

soloblast: Well, just got on KC Wiki, and evidently it was recently extended to Dec, 7th (interesting choice of date). "Two weeks" (original) tweet = end Dec. 2nd. Then it was Dec. 5th, now apparently it's Dec. 7th. There's your extension.

11-21-2015, 06:52 AM
goesto11 Yup. Looks like it happened.

11-21-2015, 05:27 PM
Joker I thinl there're actually more PT in E5 Easy than Hard...

- - - Updated - - -
Argho 2 days before event start, the dev tweet were still about devs are preparing for the event...don't think they have any test time

11-21-2015, 05:28 PM
c933103yeah there were, never have i encountered a boss node at E-5 w/o fighting those PTSDs
at most, i got to face 4 of them :/

11-21-2015, 05:44 PM
c933103 I think it was just the usual corporate talk. Sadly, we can observe them moving from servers dying from overload (Fall, Winter, Spring events) to just half assing content, letting major bugs slip by and just being plain assholes (this Summer and Fall).

11-21-2015, 10:52 PM
Would be nice if they handed us back some of the ressources we wasted on E2....
I lost so damn much ressources on it.....
