    Official announcement of yesterday's ninja fix of Ryuusei and Ryuusei kai. They also say they are preparing for next event.



    Multiple k2, including Kaga k2, is under preparation. Among this, k2 of a certain masterpiece DD will be introduced in mid May if everything goes according to plan.

    @Danielosama No idea.

    I bet it won't be Hatsuharu class though. Can't call a ship that would turnover when making a hard turn a masterpiece

    My lack of knowledge deduction would be Shima given she's the only completedpinnacle of IJN's torp strat DD design.

    Somehow googling 傑作駆逐艦 gave me Tokitsukaze as the first result lol.

    I came to the same conclusion.

    @ofi123 It's because a book about Tokitsukaze has the same word as the title.

    Yeah, I got that when I ctrl F on the wiki page. Would be funny if the devs actually used that.

    A new dd will be introduced next month if it is ready.





    Given the hint of plant, this is probably going to be a Matsu class dd.


    P.S. Her illustrator is a new artist for KC. He/she has a name of four Kanji characters and also another name in Hiragana.

    He/she might draw another sub next year.

    The late war US destroyers from Fletcher class on wards were sometimes referred to as "masterpiece" destroyers, but I very much doubt we'll have K2 for Fletcher class just yet.

    The new artist seems to be one of the in-house artists who has been training for some time for a character CG debut. And I see konishi and shibafu has been very precise in training the newer artists on equipment drawing...given the detail on that rigging.

    1944 can only mean Matsu class. Fuyutsuki sub class might have also be possible but KC doesn't recognize sub-classes as separate classes. TBH, it was actually my first thought, as the skirt is similar to the Akizuki class uniform, right down to the side-cut, and like Matsu class, Akizuki class and variants also only carry a single 4 tube torpedo launcher. That launcher is not mirrored on her other leg. Even the age seems a bit closer to Akizuki class....I always thought Matsu class would be like base/kai Asashio age given their size....

    But well, the tree/plant hint. Certainly Matsu class.

    I would say this is an external, possibly big name, artist because:

    1) Dev gave us hint of the artists' name to guess, which means this artist must have already debuted and is at least known in a certain extent.

    2) The general tone and choice of word of the tweet is more similar to the tweets introducing jiji and zeco, comparing to those that introduce sara. It is also mentioned that this is an artist who participated in KC the first time, not drawing ship girl for the first time. That wouldn't be the case for inhouse artist as they would have been participated in drawing furniture and fairies already. As a matter of fact, Sara's introduction tweet describes her as drawing shipgirl for the first time as well.
