    Fall 2019 Event Ship Lock Guide

    This thread is a general guide for ship lock planning and should be read in conjunction with the walkthrough in the respective event thread. Please also ask here for any question concerning general ship lock planning.


    This is just a draft version. Some of the examples might not match the ships I used in the respective guides because I need to revise those ship choice as well after clearing E6. The guide are still relevant apart from that, so consult wikia's bonus table before locking ships. I will update once I finish up with E6 and get all the guides of the respective maps ready.


    Summary:

    Event Map Summary
    Operation Locking Fleet type
    E-1 Single
    E-2 Single
    E-3 STF
    E4 TCF+STF
    E5 Single+STF
    E6 (Hard mode only) Single+CTF+STF

    *There will be no fleet locking on easy and casual difficulty

    Ship recommendation:

    The following recommendation will assume that you have no dupes for any ships, and have not luck modded anyone. Key ships will be highlighted.


    Ship recommendation for each tag:


    :

    1CL+1 daihaitsu DD+3DD

    Example:
    Ooshio, any CL not mentioned, any three random DD



    2CA+1CVL+1CL +1 AACI DD +1DD

    Example:
    Choukai, Takao, Sendai, Shouhou, Suzutsuki, Amagiri



    3CA+3CL+1AV+3 OASW DD+2 TCI DD

    Example:
    Nachi, Ashigara, Pola, Abruzzi, Naka, Jintsuu, Commandant Teste, Kawakaze (OASW), Aasashimo (OASW), Umikaze (OASW), Ushio (TCI), Jervis(TCI)

    Note: Swap Commandant Teste and Jervis for Chitose and CLT if you are using the CVL+CLT build.

    Edit: Switch Chitose to E5 if you want to use fast fleet there, and one of the slow CVL here.



    TCF (P1):
    2 CAV+2 CA+1CL+4 daihaitsu DD+3 DD (1-2 oasw is preferred)

    STF (P2):
    1 BB+2 CVL+2 CAV+3 CA+1 CL+2 DD+Akashi


    Example:
    Haruna, Ryuujou, Chiyoda, Mogami, Mikuma, Kako, Furutaka, Zara, Yura, Fubuki, Shikinami, Akashi, Mutsuki (daihaitsu), Kisaragi (daihaitsu), Satsuki (daihaitsu), Fumizuki (daihaitsu), Libeccio (OASW)


    Edit: Switch Chiyoda to E5 if you want to use fast fleet there, and one of the slow CVL here.



    Normal Fleet (P1):

    2 BBV+4 OASW historical DD

    STF (P2):
    2BB+1-2 BBV+2 CVL+2 CA+1CL+2 OASW DD+2 TCI DD


    Example:
    Nagato, Mutsu, Fusou, Hyuuga, Hiyou, Junyou, Maya (AACI), Myoukou, Hamakaze, Kazagumo, Shiratsuyu, Shigure (Switch to E6 as well if you lack luckmod), Hatsushimo, Yuubari

    Edit: Switch the slow CVL to E3&4 if you want to use fast fleet here, and two fast CVL here.





    STF (P1):

    2 BB+1 CAV+2 CA+Niishin+1 CL+1 CLT+4 DD (at least 2 daihaitsu DD)


    CTF (Unlock & Gimmick):
    2 BB+3 CV+1 CVL+3 CA+1 CL+1 CLT+2 DD

    STF (P2):
    3 BB+3 CA(V)+1 CL+1 CLT+3 DD+Akitsushima

    Example:
    Nelson, Kirishima, Hiei, Shoukakau, Zuikakau, Intrepid, Zuihou, Suzuya, Kumano, Chikuma, ABKM, KTKM, Yukikaze, Yuudachi, Shigure, Ayanami, Akitsushima, Fletcher, Tashkent, Gotland

    Note: Assigned extra ships here for various comps.

    @211303 Thanks for the guide! I was just about to ask whether it was worth keeping Atago and Takao for E6 due to their bonuses, so it comes at just the right time for me

    About that ship lock guide, the ships listed are placed in the maps where they have the strongest bonus right? Or at least won't be necessary in the maps after the one they're listed on right?

    @silentcap Yes, I prioritize both E5 and E6 in this guide based on the currently known historical bonus. Some ships like Takao and Shigure are debatable based on your choice of difficulty, but overall you should be safe if you save all the ships in the E6 draft.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Just cross check with the wikia's bonus table and ask if you have any question in the specific decisions I made.

    Thanks for the guide!
    I've read that Teruzuki is probably used for E6 too?
    And is it going to be a big problem if I locked both Takao and Atago in E2? Seems like a bunch of other people did that too

    I locked Takao and Atago in E-2 as well, but I don't foresee any problems in E-6 though. I plan to use Kinugasa, Maya and Prinz Eugen for the different phases of E-6, along with Kumano and Suzuya. I don't think you need many more than this if you have other historicals (especially the DDs) available too.
    Teruzuki does indeed get a buff in E-6 according to sources, but I doubt she'll be doing any significant damage anyway.

    @kazenorin Teru has buff in E6, but you probably wouldn't need her for a couple of reasons:

    1) There is no enemy aerial presence other than the gimmick parts. You can get AS+ with 1 spf for both actual hp phrases.
    2) For those situation that requires AACI, Fletcher is the better choice given her better stat and auto OASW.

    As for Takao and Atago, I locked both of them and Kinugasa. It really isn't a big deal if you have those bonus DD. What matters is the escort fleet for you, and a hypothetical escort fleet in your case can be a mix of Kinugasa+Poi+Ayanami+Akatsuki+ABKM+CLT+Fletcher. That should provide you with enough damage.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Oh, and it seems Takao doesn't have bonus in E6 after all. It's only Atago confirmed between the two.

    Proven to be false now.

    @Kuropo @211303 Thanks for the insight!

    Is Maya essential in E5, or should she be saved for E6, given Atago is locked in E2?

    @kazenorin Not essential, but it's better you can have her as a sturdy AACI ship. If you see my E5 guide, I currently have a Johnston in main fleet for my LD. Maya will be a upgrade of that. I am not accounting for luck mod in this case of cos.
