    @silentcap That heavy fleet goes through Q and the air raid at H. Honestly, with as much air power as you have for V the air raid isn't bad (or wasn't for me anyway). The two BBs in the escort help keep Q under control.

    I used intrepid for A-Ranking V to open X, but switched to Akagi for the S-Rank. If you have Akagi Kai Ni the extra slot makes up for the lower plane count - a double chevron fighter is worth an extra 25 AA right off the bat, even in the smallest slot. 4 fighters and a TB on Akagi more than made up for the smaller slots. If you don;t have Akagi Kai Ni, go with the larger slots on Intrepid.

    As for the LBAS recons, I carried that through from @211303's guide. You're not going to do better than AD with the LBAS unless you just send fighters (and probably a range extender), so I stuck with one fighter per base. You could swap the LBAS recon for another bomber.

    The other V node time saver is resetting the map if you know you are going to fail so you don't lose plane ranks.

    Thanks for the tip.

    @silentcap Yeah, if you see that you are going to get an A rank (or lower) just refresh your game before going into night battle.

    I missed the AL/MI shenanigans, but I still remember the map where the debuff expired after 24 hours so you literally had to sit there and try to beat it lest you had to redo the whole debuff process after reset. I'm honestly not sure if the game is better or worse now because it doesn't have these shenanigans anymore. lol
    Yes, that was the final map of AL/MI event, AACI Hime (aka Abyssal Akizuki), was a DD on the level of a heavy BB with the ability to empty bombers in even the biggest slots. I think by today's standards, she would still be a very tough boss (273 armor).
    I think we totally are better off without the debuff resetting, especially for those who can only sortie a limited number of times a day..

Wiping out my resources (incl. buckets) means I probably won't even try to rank T500 let alone try a lot of LSC for Maruyu. Worst of all is at some point will have to drop down to Medium to just clear this godforsaken event. I'll keep trying for now, but people keep clearing on Hard so not sure why I'm having so much damn trouble just getting to the boss node let alone by now getting stars to align.

    Anyway, do appreciate the help & such.

    PS - and yes, "perfect runs" to Boss node don't really mean much.
    I haven't been getting any Maruyus in the past year or so anymore either. They used to drop in events, but I suppose are replaced by DEs nowadays.. Not having much luck in LSC either.
    I used to rank each month when I started out, for a couple of years. Most of the rewards are superseded by new equipment, but some still useful (or I find an excuse to use them).
    Ranking nowadays doesn't net you such a big advantage over other players anymore, since most of the rewards now become available to everyone or are just marginally better than alternatives.

    The Iwai fighter is a pretty good one, with +10 AA and +2 AA bonus from max improvement. It is on par with any other +12 (or +10 if unimproved) fighter without interception stat, and it has a combat radius of 5.
    It is on par with the Iwamoto with base +12 AA, but this one has 6 range.
    The 54th squadron is still slightly ahead though.

    I have my Iwai converted to the fighter-bomber one, so didn't put it in my excel sheet. Since that sheet is for personal use actually.

    What you mentioned is actually 2015 Summer event: Operation SN. AL/MI is 2014 Summer featuring BB hime and CV hime, as well as Midway hime.


    The sexiest bridge ever made.

    E6 Medium Cleared

    The fleet I used is an almost exact copy of @Ink20's as seen here. After getting stonewalled in node V (trying to S-Rank it in Hard), I decided to drop down to Medium as, given my luck so far, I likely won't have enough time to kill the boss in LD (I likely would have to deal with the bullshit at nodes K and S in particular) even if I eventually succeeded in S-Ranking node V. As an extra kick in the teeth, I heard I chime when I S-Ranked node S (the pre-boss node) in final kill run indicating that I just completed that step when I already did that a few days ago. This means the boss likely won't still be in a debuffed state even if I S-Ranked node V (I did the other steps first since they're kinda easy) leading me to waste resources to do the other steps again.

    Welp. Gonna try the next event with at least 300K in fuel and ammo. I started the event with almost full fuel... but half the ammo compared to fuel. Guess I'll have to make do with the guns Atlanta gives. This... gonna be hard. Strangely, I don't feel salty probably because the Hard rewards for the final map isn't a plane of some kind.

    Edit: Thanks to everyone who gave guides. Especially to @Ink20 and @firehawk12.

    Yes, thank you for correcting me. I always confuse Summer 2014 and Summer 2015 with each other.
    Both were seriously hard too though.
