    [Early Fall 2018] Ship lock Guide

    This thread is a general guide for ship lock planning and should be read in conjunction with the walkthrough in the respective event thread. Please also ask here for any question concerning general ship lock planning.


    Summary:

    Event Map Summary
    Operation Locking Fleet type
    E-1 Normal
    E-2 Normal
    E-3 Normal+CTF
    EO-1 Normal+TCF+STF
    EO-2 Only matters for Hard mode CTF (Force H) & STF (Rheinburg)

    *There will be no fleet locking on easy and casual difficulty

    Ship recommendation:

    The following recommendation will assume that you have no dupes for any ships, and have not luck modded anyone. There will also be suggestions concerning where to apply key dupes. Ships that are not interchangable with other ships of the same class will be highlighted.

    Possible historical ships (Avoid using these ships for other maps):

    E3:
    FBB: Kongou, Kirishima, Haruna, Hiei
    CV: Akagi, Souryuu, Hiryuu, Shoukaku, Zuikaku
    CAV: Tone, Chikuma
    CL: ABKM
    DD: Kasumi, Shiranui, Kagerou, Arare, Akigumo, Isokaze, Urakaze, Tanikaze, Hakikaze, Maikaze

    E4-5:
    All European ships

    Ship recommendation for each tag:

    :

    1 CL+ 4 DD that can trigger OASW

    or

    2 CL +3 DE+ 1 DD that can trigger OASW

    Example:
    Yuubari, Isuzu, Tsushima, Shimushu, Etorofu, Asashimo

    :

    1BB, 1CV, 1CVL, 1CA, 2 daihaitsu DD, 1 AACI DD, 1 OASW+daihaitsu CL

    Example:

    Hiei, Kaga, Chiyoda, Haguro, Arashio k2, Ooshiyo k2, Hatsuzuki, Kinu k2

    :

    1BB, 3CV, 2CAV, 2CA, 1CVL (Only if you have night plane), 1CL, 2DD, 1 SSV

    Example:
    BB: Kirishima,
    CV: Akagi, Hiryuu, Souryuu
    CA(V) Tone, Chikuma, Nachi, Kinugasa
    CVL: Junyou
    CL: Jintsuu
    DD: Kasumi k2, Shigure k2
    Sub: I-401

    :

    2BB, 2CV (only one needs to be combatworthy), 4CA(V), 1CVE, 2CL, 8 DD (1 AACI, at least 1 daihiatsu DD), 6 sub

    Example:
    BB: Italian, Roma (or Nagato k2 if you want to save Euro ship)
    CA: Choukai, Furutaka, Kako, Mikuma
    CV: Saratoga
    CVE: Taiyou
    CL: Nagara, Tama
    DD: Satsuki k2, Fumizuki k2, Mutsuki k2, Kisaraigi k2, Arare k2, Michishio k2, Kawakaze k2, Teruzuki
    Sub: I-13, I-400, I-19, I-8, I-58, I-26




    The following only matters for Hard mode:


    The following tag recommendation would be using CTF for clearing the last phase, and STF for p2. Please note that for shortest route in both tag, you will need 6 Euro ships for Force H tag, and 3 German+3 other Euro ship for Rheinburg tag. Meeting the requirement for Rheinburg is way more important, so make that your first priority. The Euro requirement for Force H, on the other hand, is optional (only skip airstrike), and may actually be harmful if you have to field weak ships like Z1/Z3 to meet the requirment. Please refer to the E5 thread for more info. There is the option to clear p2 with CTF as well, but in this case the tagging would be vastly different comparing to the followings. Please ask in this thread or the E5 thread for more detailed advice that fits yoru situation.

    :

    2BB, 1CV, 4CA(V), 3CVL (only if you have night plane), 1CLT, 1AV (Only Commandant Teste), 1CL, 2TCI DD, 1 AACI DD, 1 Sub (U-511 or Ro)

    (At least 5 euro ship counting graf, best if you can have 6 euro ships without counting graf)

    Example:

    BB: Bismarck, Richelieu (3 more BB for LD is optional if you use AO)
    CV: Graf (Change Graf to a better CV for LD is optional if you use sub tank or if you have other dupe Bismarck/Prinz Eugen)
    CLT: Ooi
    CVL: Zuihou, Chitose, RJ
    CA(V): Pola, Kumano, Suzuya, Prinz Eugen
    CL: Ooyodo
    AV: Commandant Teste
    DD: Ayanami, Akizuki, Tashkent (Z1/Z3 are the alternative)
    Sub: Ro-500

    (Possible use of AO in LD)


    :

    No Euro ship routing, and have 3+ TCI DD(Should still use UK ship since they have bonus here)

    4CV, 2BB, 1CA, 1CL, 4DD

    Example:
    CV: Ark Royal, Zuikaku k2, Shoukaku k2, Taihou
    BB: Musashi, Warspite
    CA: Maya
    CL: ABKM
    DD: Jervis, Yukikaze, Hatsushimo, Nagnami


    No Euro ship routing, and less than 3 TCI DD
    (Should still use UK ship since they have bonus here)

    4CV, 2CA, 1CLT, 2CL, 3DD

    Example:
    CV: Ark Royal, Zuikaku k2, Shoukaku k2, Taihou
    CA: Maya, Myoukou
    CLT: Ooi
    CL: ABKM, Yura
    DD: Suzutsuki, Jervis, Yukikaze


    With 6 Euro ships and 3+ TCI DD: (Shortest route. Not recommended unless you have good Euro ship dupe or you are farming post-clear using the new Euro ships)

    4CV, 2BB, 1CL, 1 CA (Maya), 4 DD (TCI or OASW)

    Example:
    CV: Ark Royal, Zuikaku k2, Shoukaku k2, Taihou
    BB: Warspite, Gangut
    CA: Maya
    CL: ABKM
    DD: Jervis, Bep, Libe, Yukikaze, Hatsushimo




    Allocation recommendation for key ships:

    (in decending order of importantness)

    CLT: Blue tag (1)=Purple tag(1)>Green Tag (1)
    ABKM: Blue tag (1)>Green Tag (1)
    TCI DD: Blue tag (2)=Purple tag (at least 2)>Green tag (1-2)

    A warning to all ttk aiming to do hard mode. E4-5 has been released and judging from the tag and blackboard, it is possible that you will need 2-3 seperate combined fleet just for the two maps. In this case TCI/CLT/ABKM distribution will be a serious problem. I would strongly suggest you to wait for e4-5's info now.

    Also, please ignore the suggestions for e3 for now. With the introduction of friend fleet in e4-5 and e4-5's ship requirements, it might be best to use some of those escort ships for e4-5, and rely on CV nuke alone in e3. I will update the suggestions again once more info comes in.

    The ship tag guide is updated now to account for E4 & 5.

    Why do you say the shortest E5 route comp using Euro ships is not recommended unless you have dupes? So far your list has used only one of each ship per tag.

    @DLRevan Because the ship you are using (Gangut, Bep, Libe) to meet that requirement is significantly weaker than what you can field otherwise, and you only skip one airstrike node with that comp. The gain is just too little comparing to what you lose.

    Removed Kasumi from the confirmed E3 buff list. I made a calculation mistake when I was doing the math. She is still a good choice for that map though regardless because of her relatively high luck and the ability to carry daihaitsu type.

    @211303

    Is Kasumi much more needed in the next two maps than in E-3H? I haven't started yet but I managed to finalize my fleet now (I'm about to use Tone, Chikuma, Kirishima, Akagi, Murasame, and Kasumi) for Phase 1 of E-3H. I decided to check here to see if there's any changes. Fortunately, I saw one before I go on my first sortie.
