    So I guess we're getting shitty potato Mikura-class or Ukuru-class escorts because UGUME is still triggered from the fan-backlash over escort designs despite his Shimushu-class being pretty decent and the devs not wanting to finish Etorofu-class off so soon.
    Most likely Mikura + Chiburi or Ukuru + Okinawa.

    I'm curious about the Kagero K2s as it is mostly Desdiv17, Shiranui nowaki and Yukikaze that would of taken part historically in the upcoming winter event so if it's pre-event and a K2 for the event it could be one of those. However it's most likely after the event so it may be a K2 in preparation for spring event.

    Two things will never happen:
    Yuzuki getting added or Kagero-class K2.

    Exactly, every remaining CL without a KN has done some transport ops and is considered an older design, so unless the point was to specifically say Agano class would not be included, it could refer to an even older design. Which would be Tenryuu class.

    The hint is still appropriately vague though. The wording of the tweet implies something more intermediate than the oldest design, but Tenryuu class was also almost immediately followed by Kuma class, construction of the first 5500 ton types started practically the same year as Tenryuu. By that comparison Tenryuu is....not that old either? I like the possibility anyway. Agano class do not really need a special reason to be used if you don't require the specialist services of some of our KN CLs. While nobody would sortie Tenryuu class unless they really really liked them, or have some aversion to leveling other ships as they progress.



    Large event was expected I suppose. While summer is usually the largest, the subject matter of the greater Battle of Leyte would imply this being the largest event in the game's history...

    Was kind of hoping for Yahagi K2 :<, but there are a lot of other deserving CL for K2 as well. All of mine are level 80+ so should be OK (or at least pretty close) there. All for Samidare k2, but not expecting it. Regardless, most likely a visit to 4-3 will be in order.

    LOL, of course it's a large event. Welp, so much for my theory that splitting the events = 2x Medium events. Glad I did a small-ish equipment fodder spamming this time around. Just hope all the K2 quest before the event are not too resource draining.

    ---
    @DLRevan: Fair point on the last three, well 2 because I wouldn't include Gangut TBH. Definitely a stretch there IMO. Fumizuki was fine = to Satsuki. It's fine, but in general, efficiency isn't a huge deal with DD who are cheap as a class anyway. But yeah, some pretty good non BP K2... and also some not so great/meh BP K2 as well IMO.

    We'll see how new K2 turn out soon enough.

    @Ferreae: Nah, the regen boss thing has been done. More like hidden starts reset every 24hrs. Who's up for daily Z6?

    Well...no prep thread or such that I've seen or such..so if this is wrong places or such, mod move/delete? But as we're speculating on the event...

    Someone has ages ago (okay, other month) a Leyte 'prep' chart...
    (which I abused in a spreadsheet to make an auto-updating colour-coded chart for my lazy leveling needs)


    With a little editing to romanise the ship names...but leaving space to doodle in a level, https://i.imgur.com/gDFmhgA.png might be of use for some people to track their ships for the event, especially if they can't recognise the kai(ni) portraits or read the kanji? Made it for someone else, but figured might also help someone else, especially if they see it early enough to act on it?

    I find it curious that there are no hints being dropped for new ships in the event. Perhaps the next Comptiq, there should still be time?

    I was hoping for hints of something like Shinano. I think this event, at least based on the historical setting, can be "big" enough for a prize like that. There are very, very few ships of note left except for the odd CVL after Shinano. That would be a nice end to KC 1.0, and in 2.0 we could move on to more international expeditionary events like the Dover Straight breakthrough and foreign fleets. It's a nice narrative.

    So far the only new ships we know are a UK dd and 2 de.

    And yes, the next comptiq will contain event info. From past experience it will be released in 1-3 days before event starts.


    The sexiest bridge ever made.

    @211303: Any thoughts on potential new capital ships (foreign or otherwise)?
