Yeah, I heard about that bug but it's supposedly been patched already.

So I was doing what should have been my final run on E-4, got to the boss, heavily damaged but didn't kill her during the day.  But I was playing while doing other things and was kind of on autopilot so I clicked to not continue to the night battle ('cause that's what I was doing on all the pre-boss nodes...).  Sigh.  Well, I guess people have done worse things that when they weren't paying attention...

That sucks. Good luck getting that kill today. I spent yesterday resource gathering and 3-2-a farm for moderation  fodder for my AL E2 team. Hoping to get those last 2 kills today.

Oh, I got her after that.  Don't worry.

Doing E-5 now.  In 12 sorties I've been stopped at the sub nodes 3 times, stopped by night battles 3 times (though one of those times my ships only took scratch damage that wouldn't have actually been a problem except it was on top of damage done earlier by the subs...), and randomly gone off course before the boss 2 times (I don't really get that one...I should have enough LoS).  But the 4 times I actually made it to the boss have all been kills.  Frustrating map, but certainly doable.

Nice, almost done man

Cleared E2. I got another sub I-19 that I desperately needed and to end things on a good note after that hell was greeted with one more gift Amatsukaze after being trolled the previous attempt when Hime decided to smash Haguro in Night battle and she ended up with 16 hp left.....
Gonna farm resources for a day then hit E3. I need to refill my sanity meter after that hell.

E-5 cleared.  9 boss encounters, 9 kills.  5 runs stopped by the subs, 7 runs stopped by the night battles, and 2 runs went off course before I adjusted my LoS.  23 total. 

Now...E-6.  Been leveling Jun'you and Chiyoda so I have some CVLs for it, but they're still only level 77 and 80 respectively.  Any other map I would give that a shot, but this is E-6.  I probably need them to be at least 85 for any reasonable success rate.  Plus I'll be sortieing Yamato so these will be expensive runs.

Good luck on E-6.  I am really worried about my Escort fleet as they are lv 30ish (HQ 61)  so I am probably  gonna grind them up some more and at least max their  defense. I am also thinking of lvling Ooyodo to 35  and going CL/3CV/2BB seems to almost guarantee south route according to the forums.. One thing I am decent on is equipment. crafted another reppu this morning so I am up to 6 reppu, 5 shinden kai, also have 4 type 3 shells. I Went a head and took advantage of that DMM summer deal and bought the $100 pack. I can't see myself buying any more points again as it should take a good while to chew through 15k points.

24 runs on E-6 so far.  13 got stopped by ships going red, 2 randomly went off course before the boss (seriously, they had the same LoS as the ones that made it, doesn't make any sense), and 9 actually made it to the boss.  But of those only 3 were clean kills while the other 6 just did damage, though typically in the ~200-300 range.

Compared to some results I've seen I think I'm doing well, but it's still pretty frustrating.  Just chip, chip, chipping away.  The final kill is going to be tough, though.

That graph is so true it hurts. I guess that little bump at E-4 is the troll sub node.  Clearing E-5 will definitely be my ceiling, won't have anywhere near the ship levels or sanity points left to attempt that map. 3/5ths through E-4 right now.

71 runs on E-6.  Only 20 of which actually made it past the hime at node H.  But 6 of those went off course to node I and didn't encounter the boss (despite an effective LoS--the 2-5 formula--of 123).  Of the 14 that did, in 1 of them my fleet did no damage to the boss at all.  In 9 of them the boss was damaged but not killed.  And there were 4 actual kills.  Now finally I'm within one kill of clearing the map.

...which means things are going to get even harder from here on...

I'm probably going to need a support expedition at the very least, but my boss encounter rate is so low that just feels really wasteful.  I know that most of those expeditions are going to return home without doing anything, and support fleets aren't cheap.  Plus there's the opportunity cost of not sending them on normal expeditions.  I've also been trying to optimize my fleet's firepower, but it depends on high-risk high reward ships like CLTs so I have to hope they actually make it through the gauntlet intact if they're actually going to accomplish anything.

It's just a lot of praying to the RNG from here on out.

GRATS MAN! you so deserve it. How was the damage resource wise?

Just beat E-5. KTKM is a goddess she cut in for over 300 damage each of the last 4 kills. last kill she hit it for 365 as the flag.

hitler parady of the Kancolle summer event. So funny, so true, have not laughed so much in a good while. Pure comedic gold.

Even though I'm "done" with the event I'm still hunting Kiyoshimo.  She just won't drop...
