    I don't actually think the E3 friend fleets are that trash. If you used LBAS to help your passing rate instead of sending them to boss, the likely result is that the enemy escort fleet will be alive and well by night. Because your own fleet will be optimized for taking out installations, and even if they weren't, they often struggle anyway during daytime.

    The FFs that are optimized for anti-ship work can take out enough of the enemy escort for you to fight the boss fleet instead. It's not something everyone needs, and its annoying that ALL the E3 FFs lack anti-installation equips, but it's certainly something to think about.

    I'm just thinking why that's the case, when E4 FFs have anti-installation. One thing that does distinguish E3 from E4 is that, after taking their position in the event map order into account, E3 passing rate is much worse than E4 if you're not using CTF.

    This too longer than expected. 14 last dance sorties with 10 retreats. Not sending LBAS to node J really tanked the passing rate even with node support replacing it.

    First time this event I sparkled the whole fleet. Mamiya+Irako used to save resources.

    For Nelson touch, what's the better set up? To put Tama and Virney into first fleet for day attacks?

    @firehawk12: FYI - If you're going to lock Nelson to E-3, make sure you save Nagato K2 and Mutsu K2 for E-5 unless you are 100% certain you will do E-5 on Easy or Casual (and thus tags won't matter). Even then, AFAIK, it's not 100% certain which is better for E-5 (i.e. Nelson Touch or Nagato K2 + Mutsu K2). I cleared E-3H without needing any of those three, however, it can be a sticking point (RNG is a thing). That being said, I'm also not sure how much easier friend fleet makes E-3 (and you can use a slider to get a (potentially) better friend fleet at the costs of 6 flamethrowers).

    If you are using Nelson touch in E-3, you should definitely use that in conjunction with Tama anti-installation nuke. That is the point of using Nelson touch in E-3 actually.
    That being said, I would save Nelson for E-5 unless you are absolutely desperate in this map. I find Nelson touch to be better in E-5 than Nagato touch, probably due to big Iowa damage. It also makes for easier equipment setups.

    My first 3 boss battles gave me 2 Tashkent and Fukae...
    Talk about luck.

    Edit: Other notable drops were Luigi Torelli from part1 and Daitou from part2.
    Also, E3H cleared (I planned to do the last 2 maps on easy, so I used whatever I wanted)
    LD fleet
    Hayasui: kyoufuu, turbine, new boiler
    Taihou: tenzan tomonaga, type 97 tomonaga, type 97 tomonaga, saiun EC
    Shoukaku: tenzan murata, iwamoto +10, f6f5 +10, reppu M11, rocket kai +9
    Yura: 11th regiment, tank +10, wg42, bofors
    Abukuma: marines +10, tank +10, wg42, bofors
    Zuikaku: tenzan murata, f6f5 +10, reppu M11, re2005, rocket kai +9
    +
    Ooyodo: 20.3cm(3) +9, wg42, wg42, wg42, 10cm+MG +10
    Kasumi: 10cm HA+FD +9, 10cm HA+FD +9, wg42
    Verny: 10cm HA+FD +10, 10cm HA+FD +10, tank +10
    Hatsuzuki: 10cm HA+FD +10, 10cm HA+FD +10, type 13 radar kai +10, rocket kai +6 (just for the stats)
    Nachi: 20.3cm(3) +9, 20.3cm(3) +9, sanshiki kai +4, night scout +1
    Ashigara: 20.3cm(3) +9, 20.3cm(3) +9, sanshiki kai +4, 11B(skilled)

    4 LBAS waves to the boss (1 hayabusa, 3 bombers)
    Boss support only for LD
    Also, useless strong friend fleet (very useless with her miss and get wrecked habit)

    I went 2SHILPR for all runs and I had only 1 retreat during chipping (because Verny took a torpedo in her knee at the sub node even though I had Kiso for OASW in place of Kasumi), 2 retreats during LD (at I and L) and 1 failed kill.
    On final kill I reached the boss with only Verny light damaged and Hayasui medium damaged, I got a green T and I entered night battle with Ooyodo medium damaged and Verny heavy damaged VS a very lightly damaged boss and a heavy damaged airfield hime and, even though everyone hit the wrong target (instead of quickly finishing airfield hime they all hit the boss so that Nachi could waste her attack on airfield hime), Ashigara managed to kill the still light damaged boss.

    Hrm, most of the setups I've seen so far use Nelson - how do you best set up the fleets (for both phases) without using her?

    @firehawk12: FWIW, this is my clearing report for E-3 Hard. Hope it helps & GL.

    PS: E-4 is cancer. Reminds me of Spring 2016 E-6 RNG fest. Seriously, devs had good idea with event and E-1 to E-3 were at least OK IMO, but EO maps are ridiculous. Too much RNG and this game isn't fun.

    The fleet compositions I used for E-3:





    E-4 was mostly tedious and very expensive imo.
    E-2 and E-3 were fine for a harder event.
