    Not bad. Re-used 3 ships from hard clear, locked 2 spare ~50 DDs and a ~60 Mogami and farmed myself a Yamakaze at S that I missed out on last event. And that probably used up my farming luck for this event...

    Hmm, seems like my earlier issues with reaching S while bringing CLTs was a LoS issue. Still end up going to N though. Haven't tested bringing 2 CLTs with high enough LoS yet.
    BBV,CLT,2CL,2DD seems to be working pretty smoothly on easy though opening torpedoes rarely do anything to imps but neither did the CA I used to bring

    Edit: Yep, just my fault of not accounting for LoS. BBV,2CLT,CL,2DD works well though the difference between bringing a CLT or a double attack CL seems to be pretty minute.
    A torpedo squadron might be good too but I'm not willing to give up that BBV since the opening airstrike from 4 seaplanes tends to kill imps pretty consistently and my repair costs have been fairly low (though fuel and ammo costs are higher) 54 sorties, all S ranks on the S node (though had to enter yasen a few times), no retreats and 26 used buckets. ┬Żbuckets per sortie on easy seems pretty good as far as farming goes

    Everyone has finally been rescued, leveled to their highest possible remodel and united with their sisters.Missed the Fall event so missing those Yamakaze, Saratoga and Teste. Well, Atleast now I have something to look forward to. My kancolledex is crying...

    I really want to start the event as soon as possible, but the info regarding E5 to R6 is too few..

    Planning to use Hyuuga/ Ushio/ Etorofu/Naka/Sakawa/Hiyou here. Will they needed for another map?

    Is it worth bothering to bring support to E1?


    Wo-san... why won't you come to my base?

    You don't get it do you? It's a SHIP that launches Ship GIRLS! It's going to cause a rift in the space/awesome continuum!!

    @Impstar_Deuce

    I just started E1, but I don't think its necessary with the JGDP route, but maybe in final dance because the AP requirement is higher..

    @Impstar_Deuce It's almost crazy enough to work for me.
    I've been stuck here an uncomfortable amount of time.
    I like to clear the first 3 maps at a rate of 1 map/day.
    I'm on my 3rd day trying to clear hard. Thinking it's probably not worth it.
    But I'm worried about clearing at all, since I either can't get there in 1 piece, someone gets chuuhad in the opening round of boss (either by her or the planes), or the escort sub eat my all 4 of my OASW strikes.

    And Hyuuga just ate it on the first node. REALLY!!!

    I can switch out Taiyou for a better CVL, but if I do I can't hit her hard enough to kill her at best.
    And the only reason I'm running Buki with AACI is because I don't want to waste an AA DD on this map, or anyone I really care about.
    Bad enough I'm using Verniy and Taiyou here.

    - - - Updated - - -

    There, that did it. It really wasn't worth the trouble. Not when I'm going to get half a dozen more planes this event.
    But I think at some point I just got mad for the sake of being mad and beat it on hard out of spite.
    For what it's worth, S doesn't look too bad, so if the rest of the event goes better I'll come back for Sagiri and Yamakaze there.
    The only notable drop I got while clearing was Kashima (who could have been another OASW option in this map).
    The funny part is, despite all that, I actually gained resources in all areas but steel over the course of trying to clear.

    @Hoshimaru Not having a single ship with the right setup for that map surely didn't help....

    @Murrue I thought I was here to fight subs and just survive everything else. Well, I'll take a win on dumb luck and stubbornness.
    What though would have been the right way to do it?

    Also I could have gotten it done sooner if I weren't working and/or out of the house all weekend.

    @Hoshimaru your BBV and CVL are here only to take care of surface ships, so your 4 ASW DD/DE/CL stay in good shape to sink boss:
    BBV should be 2 red guns/obs plane/SPF
    CVL with enough fighter power to get AS on boss, 1 saiun and TB
    if possible all OASW ship should have sonar+DC thrower + DC to get a post cap bonus damage, and if not enough DC, 2 sonars + DC thrower.

    @Murrue I can only do 3 OASW at a time without her. I don't have enough gear for that.
    But keeping Hyuuga at standard arms would have helped. I just wasn't getting enough air power. That's also why Buki wasn't on ASW like she was supposed to be.
    I'll fix that if I go back there, but I'm planning on farming S not the boss.
