    @Leyana No just complaining about this being a 8 hour patch with almost nothing new in it ...

    Code:

    Devs are really going with the expansion slot theme lately. Got some saved up, but more and more incentive to perhaps buy extra. Wonder what else will be allowed going forward. Other than that, a new Kai ni would be nice. Maybe next update, please?

    @Leyana:

    So theoretically, you could make Yamato-class a "fast BB" and thus allowed in escort fleet for combined fleet? Even if so, I suspect that you'll have to sacrifice too many slots to engines to do that. Am curious about this new mechanic in general since barely had enough fast CVL last event as it was.

    @goesto11 One could just use Bismarck

    with an armor plate.

    Or an upgraded 25mm

    @Jifaru: True, though FP would matter for land based type bosses. Plus proto 51cm don't fit on Bismarck so can boost Yamato class more. I suppose one could also throw a torpedo bulge on Iowa for a poor man's Yamato substitute in that case, but not the same. [Edit] Would upgrade Bofor's 40mm if/when available, but nothing right now (passing on 25mm concentrated). Still scrambling to keep up with improvement with all the new additions. At any rate, yes, I'm sure Bismarck Drei will remain overall queen of FBB for escort fleets.

    Really the heart of my question is more towards classification. So in that example, one might make a Yamato class "fast" in terms of speed, but is that the same as a "Fast BB" for combined fleet escort limitations (I'm sure it works for branching requiring a fast fleet). Other than that, wondering what the additional speed categories do.

    @211303: That's what I thought. Expansion slot alone won't be enough. Need two slots worth of engine equipment at least.

    No,it just changes their speed not their ship classification so this shouldn't work. The game does distinct between FBB and regular BB (this is most apparent if you sort them by ship class) so just making them 'fast' won't change that.

    Of course this might let people sneak Junyou up to fast speed without losing anything but her smallest plane spot so you're not stuck with just RJ and Chitose class for "fast only" fleets that need a CVL.
    However I wonder if the difference in her plane slots while losing the ranked plane bonus for the 4 slot would still keep her up over second-rung fast CVL like Shouhou-class.

That Fusou in the screenshot has 1 turbine, 2 +13 boiler and 2 +10 boiler though, and it's still at high speed plus, so I assume that's the most she can get, unless there is a difference between +10 and +13 boiler as well.
    You CAN upgrade them too, so perhaps with a few + on them that Fusou can hit cap too.
    upgrade effect might be pretty important, since Shimakaze can hit cap with two, would a +10 one of the highest quality be able to do it alone? That would be something important to find out.

    If Shimakaze CAN hit speed cap with a single equipment in her expansion slot when it's upgraded.. she goes up in value in the case hitting max speed becomes an important feature. Even just with two (one in expansion one in 3rd) she can still torpedo cut in quite effectively with her base stats.. so if speed really DOES end up mattering Shimakaze might actually end up being high-tier DD again.


    Or maybe this is part of their pre-plan for Shimakaze K2, very minor stat increase but her base speed goes up to fast+

    @KotoNano

    As of now, we know that a +13 boiler gives a higher speed bonus than a +10 boiler. (ie Shoukaku k2a with +6 turbine and +10 boiler is at high speed plus, but at max speed with +6 turbine and +13 boiler). It will be interesting to know if upgrade affects the speed bonus as well. Though, if this is the case, I really hope Tanaka doesn't take max speed fleet for granted and make it a central theme for an event. Boiler upgrade is really costly, and the only sources of +13 boiler is either from Akashi upgrade or Amatsukaze kai.


    Twitch is offline. Event cleared
    The sexiest bridge ever made.
