    Game Update 21 Feb 2018 Event Hotfix



    E5-7 of the 2018 Winter Event will be released on 21 Feb.

    E5 is called "Operation Tai-gou kai". It is a map based on the Battle of Ormoc Bay. Hamanami will drop in E5. The Shima fleet will be featured in this map.



    (For more information of the Battle of Ormoc Bay, check this wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Ormoc_Bay

    Noted that other than the members of Shima fleet, notable ships like Naganami, Shimakaze, Okinami and Asashimo have also participated in this battle. You might want to refrain from using these ships before the EOs are released.)



    1. Zuihou k2 will be introduced in an hour (JST 21:26 while I am writing this)
    This is a convertable k2, and Zuihou k2 B will be introduced at the same time. The k2 is also relatively cheap in terms of resources/mats.

    Right on the money about Ormoc once Hamanami was announced, even though technically it happened in the time after Leyte proper. That's why it's called Operation Ta KAI.


    A search of the OOB/TROM also brings up some more names. Apart from the 21DesDiv (Hatsuharu-class) attached to Shima's fleet that never actually participated in the Leyte battles proper, there are also a couple more that have escaped mention. Uzuki is one, as is Shimushu surprisingly (shot down a B-25?!).

    Again, all these names thrown out are just speculation about who could possibly be involved, but for those paranoid about locks the best course of action is not to tag anyone at all until people have beaten the entire event.



    Personally I haven't a clue how E5 lock is going to work since it's a complete anachronism involving ships that were sunk before/during Leyte, as well those that were detached from their fleet having survived Leyte then sunk afterwards during those operations.

    I'm betting either no lock, or that there is no tag imposed but certain tags are banned (e.g. Nishimura's and Ozawa's). This is speculation. Do not take this as fact.

    @NanashiYoukai Datamine has already found a purple Shima fleet tag.

    @211303 Heh, interesting. That's news to me.

    They could always have two fleetlock impositions for the same map (e.g. the way it's done in E2), which is new to events as a whole. Perhaps Shima's fleet sortie representing the pre-Leyte (and a bit of post-Leyte) action, and something else to accept and account for the actual participants in the historical Ormoc who would, logically, be tagged to the other tags for Leyte proper.


    But yeah if a Shima fleet tag exists then Shima fleet members are strictly hands-off for the first 4 maps until we find out what exactly is needed in EOs in a couple of days.


    also nice choice of colours, devs.

    Great, I just used the shima fleet already... welp, hopefuly that won't screw people over too hard considering many already deployed full shima fleets.
