    Didn't watch as many replays of E5 LD as before due to E3 reaction videos, but finally stumbled upon one with friend fleet sinking the boss in LD.

    Gratz, told you it wouldn't take long since FF itself is a helpful (sensible - much better than RNG shtfest before its arrival) crutch.

    @Makikaki: Thanks. Fair point, but took me long enough WITH Friend Fleet. Plus you never know. Failed to get Hard Clear for Spring 2016 using same comps/load outs as others. Ran out of resource and resupply buckets as well. People clearing in 4 or 5 attempts with 2x resupply. Me? Nothing. Just never know. There's always an outlier. That being said, I do think not only would I have cleared much faster with Nelson fleet, but also things wouldn't have looked so dire. Like I said, night & day difference both in passing rate and at the boss node.

    And yeah, clearing without friend fleet is pure RNG hell. As others have said, this is arguably the most friend fleet dependent event. On the plus side, I suspect that the friend fleet tab may signal that we get friend fleets from the start. Those who want extra challenge can turn it off when starting the event.

    @211303: Thanks. Glad I got the extra shiny Reppuu after all that expense and effort. Need all the +12AA or better planes I can get. Also NB fighter so that should help when you need those few extra points of airpower. Not sure about Akagi K2E though where I think it gets the largest fit bonus. Already converted Sarataga back to MkII since I use her NB configuration a lot for normal maps. I guess I could make Akagi my go to NB carrier, but not sure if that's a good idea or not. Also range 6. Sigh, in preparation for this event, I upgraded Spitfire Mk1 to MKV and Hayabusa II to IIIA. Seems like a total waste now. :/

    Hey it's me again. Yeah I'm still alive. Due to things, I am just officially starting the event now. Doing E-1 medium but the rest will be EZ PZ. Cutting it close but at my level I shouldn't have any difficulty. Having said that, I'm actually retiring from doing hard mode I guess. I'm no longer interested in getting top tier equipment via events. I suppose the largest contributing factor was that I have not progressed through the revamped maps since phase 2 came out. My W3 onwards remain locked. I may start to slowly make my way through them but it was a big let down for me when it happened. I basically just logged in for exp and resources. Well I hope I can somehow renew my vigor in playing KC with more passion like I used to 4 years ago.

    E5 Hard cleared!

    Notable drops: None

    Node V unlock using transport fleet is as bad as fall 2017 Z6 unlock. Otherwise, just need everything to align to get the perfect kill for part 1 and part 2 bosses. MVP goes to Fletcher for tanking both Re-elite torpedos and Pacific Princess attack at the cost of 1 damegami..

    I would like to thank the Himeuta community for all the suggested fleets and invaluable insights posted here. See you in the next event!




    Part 1



    Surface fleet


    Part 1 LBAS - emphasis on more fighters. Send all to 1st boss node


    Carrier fleet unlock (air raid nodes only) - put in an AV to route to air raid node G. Use Part 2 Surface fleet for node X unlock



    Transport fleet for node V unlock



    Part 2



    Part 2 fleet - Surface fleet. Can swap one of Ise's fighters with a good zuiun for arty spotting during pre-LD



    Part 2 LBAS - all to 2nd boss node. Emphasis on more bombers due to low enemy air fighter power at 2nd boss node

    I know there isn't much time left but maybe you could try E3H (it shouldn't take much time if you avoid node j).
    E4E can be done in 5 sorties directly with a CTF so it will be faster.

    @goesto11 Hey, I just thought I'd ask since I've been copying your fleets and figured should have mostly the same unlocked ships... (no Johnston though. :/) lol
    Did you post your P1 and unlock fleets somewhere? I see your ending fleet, but have been trying to find the earlier fleets in the thread.

    Cheers!

    Or alternatively, what are the recommended alternatives for Fletcher and Jonhston?

    @firehawk12 You may use Kasumi, Ayanami or Shigure in place of them. Kasumi has a very high modifier while none of these 3 ships will lock out the best friend fleets.
