  1. Those are all good points. JP has way better gear, so I tend to ignore what they do. Buy here is a dude on EN autoing 13-4. I can field an identical fleet (expect for the subs, mine are on the weak side), but using his comp I can't ever clear it on manual. Maybe it's just lack of 120 subs with all gold torps. Doesn't seem like they do that much damage though. I can clear 13-4 boss with Enty+Essex+Helena (which is just an 'I win' button for anything) and the IJN hacker fleet (Nagato+Amagi+Ryuuhou+Nosh+Jinstuu+Tanikaze), but both are ease mode. Dunno. Just feels like some people can magically throw out 25% more damage than me.
  2. So, I've run into a rather serious problem with 13-4, and that's that I keep getting ROFLPWN'D by the boss. I've seen YT vids of people autoing that fight. I can barely manage manual. It feels like my DPS is just way too low. I've checked the gear people are using, it seems like I have more or less the same stuff. I feel like I am really missing something huge. Any thoughts?
  3. I'm super busy at work, so my hot take is a week late. The fan-base for AL (and similar games) is super, super protective of the characters so I'm not surprised that some people are upset my the mere suggestion that Avrora might have been mistreated. It looks like they're going doe a prison theme for a lot of the Northern Alliance skins. Personally, I think it's nice that they're branching out a little from the standard School girl, Maid, Kimono, Cheongsam* outfits they give everybody. *I'm not claiming for a second that I don't love all of the forgoing costumes, but variety is the spice of life. Maybe an Arabian harem theme...
  4. My luck this event was pretty bad. Took 160 pulls to get everyone. Really glad it was light construction!
  5. Yes, you can keep enhancing with Blueprints after you've finished building her (it would be impossible to get enough otherwise.) That's probably good enough to start. PR ships feel a little weak (to me) below development level 20, but they are still very powerful compared to almost anyone else. P.S. in regards all the new skins my thoughts can be summed up as follows: thicc thighs save lives.
  6. Super excited to start what will undoubtedly be a long, painful, hell grind in World 13. Airspace control was introduced to increase the viability of CVs in later Worlds. Pound for pound they just can't compete against BBs and BCs without it. I'm planning on running something like: Enty, Essex, South Carolina, Seattle, Balty, Sandy to establish utter and complete air superiority.
  7. According to the number-crunchers she and Noshiro are supposed to be top tier. Since my Unicorn and Shouhou are max level Ryuuhou will probably get primary healing duty in my fleet. Meta aside, if you don't want two statuesque, raven-haired, demon-girls in your fleet I don't understand you and I don't want to understand you.
  8. Been a 'busy' weekend. Super-massive post incoming! New Event Ships: New PR Ship: New Retros:
  9. Awesome. Keep up the good work.
  10. They are all separate stories. However, the series consists of self-contained trilogies that have recurring characters and reference events from previous games (the connections tend to be very minor though). That said, Ryza is the first game is a (hypothetical) new trilogy so, it is completely stand alone
  11. Platinum 276: Onechanbara Z2: Chaos.


    Shapely young woman in tiny swimsuits battle zombies for reasons that were never entirely clear it me.  What's not to love?

      Well done! 💯

  12. If I'm counting right, we're looking down the barrels of as brand new Sakura event with six (6) new ships and a ton of amazing new skins (I'm a sucker for kimonos, what can I say) Really glad I'm sitting on 700 cubes. Gems might be an issue though...
  13. Sword and Fairy 6 on deep sale on PSN EU right now - if you're not Europe. My bad 😂



    1. Helmet_time


      Nope.  Not Europe...



      I appreciate the thought though.

      @Helmet_time Land of the Free, I see. 


      I try to make it over when I can. Got friends in CT




  14. No question 12-4 is genuinely hard. However, I am not sure how much you need to work the meta to successfully clear it. I'm willing to bet that basically any fleet could clear the trash at level 110-120 with +10 gold gear. The boss is a pretty nasty DPS race even on safe with good ships. Still, I bet you could do it even with a sub-optimal setup. P.S. Portland is a top-shelf tank and worth building up. If you're running Indy you should consider running Portland with her for the extra buff.
  15. Trying to remember the name of a game.


    I ran into it purely on accident a few weeks back (it might have been on sale on PSN).


    As I recall it was an SRPG with a definite anime aesthetic.  The game was normally rather long, but there was a hyper-specific guide that described how to get the platinum by by-passing all the battles.


    Does ring any bells for anyone?

    1. YaoiGod


      Was it Trillion by any chance? That's the only game i can recall from your comment about by-passing most battles.

    2. Helmet_time


      Actually sound a lot like Trillion. 


      After way to much obsessive searching, it turns out the game in question is Regalia of Men and Monarchs (because I know everyone is on the edge of their seats over this question)

      I'm glad you found it in the end though, i haven't played Regalia but it's in my wishlist. Interesting to see Regalia and Trillion sharing something in the trophy guide lol.
