    [Winter 2019 E3] Assault! Buin Defense Operation





    This post will be updated with confirmed information pertaining to map E-3 as it is spaded. The thread can also serve as a starting point for people to discuss the map if they want.

    Disclaimer: Information in this thread is subjected to change when new or additional data is made available.

    General Event Outline, Participation Requirements and Difficulty System



    To participate in this event, you must have a sortie win rate of 75% or above. You also need at least 5 spare Kanmusu slots and 20 equipment slots. Completely depleting the health bar and therefore clearing the map will lock it in the chosen difficulty, it cannot be changed afterwards.








    Please be aware that it is not possible to increase the difficulty between maps by more than one. As an example if you have cleared E-1 on "Easy" you will not be able to select "Hard" for E-2; only "Medium" will be available. However players will be able to choose "Hard" again for E-3 if you pick "Medium" on E-2 for this specific scenario. This does not affect the ability to decrease difficulty; players will still be able to choose "Easy" after clearing the previous map on "Hard".

    And E3 cleared! I will be posting the preliminary guide soon.

    - - - Updated - - -

    E3 guide



    P1:



    Route: AFEILPS

    Formation: Vanguard for preboss surface node, Diamond for air raid, line ahead for boss

    LBAS: 2 bases with 4 bombers to boss, 1 base with 4 bomber to node L

    Many comp exists for this part, and I opt to go with full drum and daihaitsu with my fleet, relying on LBAS to get me A rank in boss node. 5 radar is needed to skip node B. This particular comp took 6 runs to drain the TP bar. I


    Unlocking ZZ:

    To get ZZ, you need to 1) get AS+ (AS?) at node F, I, D, K, N, T and U; 2) get 2 perfect defense; and 3) get S rank at node S again. We will be using sub for unlock for most of the nodes here. Using sub is not only cheap, but also has higher passing rate, ignoring most of the major threat. Since most of our destination are air raid, you can advance with taiha sub if the next run is air raid (e.g. node B when going to node I, node O when going to node N). Remember that for getting AS+, an LBAS wave has to reach those node when you get AS+ for it to count.

    Step 1: Fill your base with fighter and sortie a fleet with 6 sub. These sub should have as many SPF as they can. Pick A and get AS+ at node F and node I. Try for one node at a time and send all 6 waves to the same node to ensure getting AS+.

    Step 2: Sortie the same fleet and pick node C this time. Get AS+ for D, K and N.

    Step 3: Sortie the sub again, but this time put your best interceptor in your bases. Advance till you get 2 perfect defense.

    Step 4: Sortie a CTF with 4 CV and a bunch of OASW to get AS+ at node T and node U.

    Step 5: Sortie your P1 fleet, only this time you should have combat equipment. Get S rank at node S.


    P2:

    Clearing fleet:
    [+] Spoiler




    Recommended LD fleet:


    Route: ACDGJTZZ

    Fighter power: Around 420 for chipping, 520 for LD

    LBAS: 2 bases with 1 T2 LBAS recon/fighter/2 bomber to boss, 1 base with 4 toukai to both C and ZZ. Aim for 4 waves of AD for the LBAS sent to boss.

    Support: ASW support for node (put a fighter on each of the CV's smallest slot to save bauxite. One of the comp in node J has a CVL). Shelling support for boss.

    Note:
    For fixed routing to ZZ, your either need a fleet with 3BB 0CV(L) or 2 BB 1CV 1AV(?). Both fleets would require 6 radar, including one on the main fleet's flagship. The 3BB comp pretty much requires Ise k2 to get AS, unless you do not send LBAS to the sub loli node. I prefer the CV comp though, as I believe a CV's CVCI would provide more damage than Ise.

    Since fleet with fixed routing is pretty light, Nagato's special attack will be very important for extra damage. I gave her both radar and ap shell instead of a recon for both routing purpose and to enhance the bonus modifier of her special attack. Picked Musashi instead of Mutsu since she can equip radar, AP shell and recon at the same time. To trigger the attack, put Nagato at flagship and another BB at the 2nd slot, then select 2nd formation at boss node.

    In terms of historical ships, Isokaze has around a x2 modifier, and thus would be highly recommended. Even her DA would deal a significant amount of damage. For the other DD, you can choose between Kawakaze/Arashi/Hagikaze in DA comp, or any of the DD with x1.5 modifier in TCI comp. The latter will produce more damage in general, but would be less stable. For CA, Myoukou should be the only choice unless you luck modded Hagurou. There is no historical CL with high enough damage, so just pick ABKM for LD. For chipping/farming, replace some of the CL and DD with OASW comp for passing rate.

    I've been reading around and trying certain set-up to get a 100% ZZ branching in hard and so far this the following I noticed from my fleet:
    • Maximum of 3 BB(V)+CV(L/B). Speed is not an issue here
    • 6 surface radar of which 1 is in the main fleet flagship (following what @211303 did). FuMO counts also so you can "cheat" with that.
    • Myoukou and Isokaze in escort. Position does not matter. I'm not quite sure if there is any historical ship(s) involved.


    What I using so far is:
    3(BB+CV) 2CAV AV in main with 2CA CLT CL 2DD. 11 runs that managed to survive past node T and then have been hitting ZZ node so far. No offroutes. Maybe I'm just too lucky?

    Of course that set-up has its own set of problem, primarily due to air power issues. To secure AS at boss, this ends up the 2CAVs and AV being seaplane fighter mules (Don't forget to put 1 surface radar onto them). This where Nagato K2 and Nelson comes handy due to their special cut-in. Nagato K2 is much prefered as you can put in a CV to boost your airpower which is quite much needed since LD replaces the transport with a CV HIme.

    See if anyone got any further details on this.

    There has been a couple of possible build for fixed route discovered:

    1. 3BB+0CV(L) with 6 surface radar

    2. 2BB+1 AV+1 CV with 6 surface radar (for people with not enough SPF)

    3. 3BB+1CVL with 9 surface radar (not 100% sure)

    I will be updating the above guide above based on the info once friend fleet is released.

    You would need around 520 fighter power if you keep one base for loli sub.

    For the 3bb comp, there will be 3 fighter on akitsumaru (4 if you bring ise k2), and you need to fill the remaining gap with spf.

    @211303 Well, I unfortunately locked all my CAVs except one, so the 3BB comp is a no go for me.

    @211303 I locked Zara too, but not Pola. I have Akitsumaru available too of course.
    Btw, does Ise K2 count in the 3BB comp? or can you have 3BB + Ise K2?
