    Regarding the S ranking of node N and P after TP phase: wouldn't having 3 FBBs as you suggested be worse than 2 FBB + suzu/kumano since it goes through an extra air raid node (M)?

    @Makikaki Yes, you are right. It should be ABKM instead of Hiei there, with Poi at the 5th slot.

    I actually power through that node with 3BB+clt+maya+cav. Probably that's why I got mixed up. Thanks anyway.

    Finally made it to chipping phase...
    Got into boss node twice, once which was all green but yet still unable to sink any but one of the boss fleet's ship during day battle...
    Ended up 5 v 5 night battle and chipping away some 300 HP...

    How did people clear E6H at all

    I'm starting to reconsider the possibility of clearing before FF... though that alone is a risky option for me...
    At least have to make it through chipping...

    -----

    It seems that being able to chip away 300HP is actually pretty good.
    Got a couple more runs which was all green and good before battle, but end up chipping only 100 or so.

    Another run which several ships entered boss node moderately damaged, but Yuudachi managed to snipe the boss, ended up chipping away a record high 600HP.
    I now chip away around 150HP per sortie... Already used up 85 buckets...

    It seems to me that sparkling the main/escort fleet isn't that useful, a fully sparkled node support is more important.

    I see no point in either sparkling or node support; useless for sub node, barely matters for node D - even more when using Vanguard for K... and node S is praying that the OP CAs miss because they WILL get at least one chance to shoot.

    My own problem isn't with low (about 20-30%~ chance to reach boss) pass rate, but the ridiculous meat shields all over the boss with overbloated stats.
    It doesn't help that my ships refuse to target the boss, out of the 15 boss fights I'm STILL only half way the hp bar and 3 of these fights were when nobody even shot at the boss.

    Seems to me that hard mode is slowly becoming an endurance test of patience and nothing else; when someone gets bored of the 5th taiha in a row at sub node - especially if those fleets were sparkled, god forbid node support resources wasted - you start to question what else you could've achieved with your IRL time instead.

    I also enjoy waiting for the morale to regen, because that still exists.

    Any reason not to use Yuudachi, Ayanami, Akatsuki with DA setups?
    Their dmg will be good already and far more reliable than TCI; once I switched to 3 DA DD TCI Shigure (as flagship) KTKM and 4 slot ASW/night recon CL my chippings became much more consistent and even killed all escorts with it.

    Maybe even for LD this setup wouldn't be too bad, since even with TCI what matters most is the enemy rolling low armor - that's pretty much it, not even an ?ber TCI will be able to 1shot BB demon most - if not all - the time.

    Only big hiccup for DA is getting chuuha'd.

    I suppose you can do that in chipping (although I also has 2 clean kills in chipping with their tci so it kind of balances out).

    For LD though it is really a snipe game without FF, so just barely killing the mob is not enough. What you need is something that has the potential to one shot the actual boss.

    Boss HP down to 713, so finally done with chipping...?

    Took 33 runs, making this map the most resource expensive map I ever done.
    Got into boss node 19 times, of which 3 times got into boss node only scratched.
    None of these attempts killed the boss, best I could do was dealing close to 700 damage to the boss.

    Gradually decreased the amount of resources per sortie by:
    1. Not fully sparkling boss support (actually only the first two runs were fully sparkled)
    2. Not sparkling anyone except node support (for about half of the runs)
    3. Stop sending boss support (which had Musashi in it, accounts for the other half)
    4. Stop sending node support (took advice from @Makikaki, after two runs I was done with chipping)

    It's all about sniping the boss, which sucks.
    Who the hell designed this event?
    I mean, if it was designed with FFs in mind, RELEASE THE FF NOW.
    It's the 17th already, the event started almost three weeks ago.
    Whatever... Try my best to do the debuff (which is as hard?) by today and leave the LD till FF...

    Ships such as Ayanami/Yuudachi/Akatsuki can really wreck the boss in terms of damage - if either of these are TCI they have the potential to heavily dmg the boss with really good crit and armor rolls... now if only 2 of these would target the boss...

    Question: how exactly is a submarine fleet supposed to survive D-node that has Tsu flags with OASW and anti-sub gear on like the entire fleet?

    You don't pass that route at all. Just pick node f instead. You will go north to the air raid nodes, and then back south again, pass the nb node, and reach node M.
