    Were you able to open ZZ with just getting AS on hard? I'm in the same boat currently with only 6 SPFs.

    6 SPF worked for me, but i had plenty of fighters for my lbas. Used 4 fighters on all 3 bases (the ones with the best aa+interception combo), switching around as range demanded. I did get AS+, and my SPF where unmodded, but double chevron.

    @goesto11 I initially tried with 1 OASW, but sub loli (especially at ZZ) stopped me quite a few times, which is why I went with two OASW. I should mention that I didn't use ASW node support during chipping, if you intend to use it then OASW ships might not be necessary.

    Unlocking isn't especially difficult, I just found it a bit long (for some reason I kept getting taiha'd on the way to S node while trying to S rank it), but it's definitely not the hardest or longest of any event. It's probably one of the easiest in fact. The SSV strat works fine for most of the unlock.

    E-3H cleared yesterday, and Johnston farming completed today.

    Pass rate on part 2 was marginal while clearing (using ASW Support), and awful (50%, no support) while farming. [ edit: I take it back - Awful all around. Even with the ASW node support during clearing, I only made it to the boss half the time.] And that was 100% due to the loli Sub Hime's opening torp. Even when it didn't send me straight back, I was limping into the boss fight with at least one historical bonus ship chuuha.

    My last farming run started awful with two chuuha at C, C-Rank at the end of the day battle at the boss, manged to eke out the A rank with the help of the friend fleet, and got the drop. So I guess my advice is, keep pushing through to the NB, even if it's not looking promising.

    I think that'll do it for me - didn't drop Hayanami on E-2, but my pass rate there was 0/6 without node support, and I just can't bring myself to sparkle node support for farming.

    BTW, what's the best ASW support setup? 4CVL+2DD?

    I've got pretty good fighters on all my LBAS, but still couldn't get it to happen. Going to switch over to CTF and give that a shot.

    @Mobius 2CVL 2CV 2DD works too, and you should put your best ASW planes on them.

    - - - Updated - - -
    @goesto11 The CTF is just an unlock, so any CV will be fine, even Aquila. The nodes before isn't hard anyway. Genearlly don't find E2 unlock worth doing as it only reduce one air raid node that is very weak.


    The sexiest bridge ever made.

    Cleared E3H today...

    The map itself seems to be pretty easy.
    Phase 1 was pretty trivial.
    However unlocking ZZ took me a day, and I actually cleared the new year's event for the extra Kyoufuu Kai which took me a week (busy IRL)
    The unlocking process itself wasn't difficult, just had to keep trying until RNG gave me the right comp to AS+.

    Phase 2 was loli-subhime terror...
    I originally did not want to sparkle until LD, but wasn't able to get pass sub hime nodes...
    Node AWS support did little to help... Even at Chuuhaa, the sub hime could bring down anyone to Taihaa.

    Friend fleet was awesome, especially the cloudy fleet. On my LD, they brought the sub hime from 692 down to 236, as well as clearing out an escort DD.
    Won't have been a kill if not the friend fleet.
    Even the Taiyou + 2DE comp was pretty good at dealing heavy scratch damage.

    Oh and on my LD, I forgot to swap to the 520 FP build (so I had ~427 only), apparently it did not matter (killed on first boss encounter thanks to Friend Fleet)


    Resources down to 262/280/286/270 from all 290~300, not too bad.
    I haven't done any farming yet though... And let's not forget this is a three-map event...



    Now it's time to farm...

    I guess I might need to spark the escort fleet, and probably not deploying node support because it's too expensive in terms of sparkling.
    Boss support with only a sparkling flagship seems alright.

    Edit: I gave up on all sparkling and support expedition

    Even with ASW support and sparkling, loli sub is kicking my ass real fucking hard. I think I'm going to have to add an OASW ship to my second fleet, because god damn.

    Farming feels pretty awful...
    4 hours and only sortied 13 times, reached 9 boss times, of which there were 2 S-Clear, 6 A-Clears and 1 C lost
    (Edit: So far ~7 hours, 26 sorties, 16 boss encounters, 6S 9A 1C)

    There were some good drops like Daitou and Maruyu...
    But I'm already down to 246/271/275/266 from 262/280/286/270...

    Musashi is so expensive...
    I gave up on sparkling and support expedition after considering the time and resources spent as well as feasibility...
    Instead I went with 3 OASW (ABKM + NGNM + Tashkent)
    The passing rate is somewhat acceptable at this point (support expeditions didn't do much anyways).
    But it still takes too much time D:

    This is the first time in a while that I've got the feeling I might not get all new drop-only ships... If any new drops at all
    Since I'm running out of time (busy IRL and only got weekends)

    Is there any trick to speed up the runs lol...
