now to figure out how im guna get past 2-4
You are officially on the same page with Lyr now, he just pass 2-3 yesterday too. I passed 2-4 with Kongo, Hiei, Kirishima, Haruna, Akagi, and Kaga.

Also, if side note, each battle take 20% consumption (Night battle increase more), if you go are going to pass 5 node you can basically just return because by the time u reach Boss node you'd be out of fuel/ammo. Also, 2-4 on all nodes have chance to get the rare drop Shimakaze (I got it from 250/200/30/30 formula though =3=/).

LOL <_< nice, there's update today I believe, for Mutsuki and Kisaragi Kai Ni. And yea, usually that's what happens in events... those pre boss node they have heavy hitters there ;A;... one hit from Battleship Hime pretty much guarantee heavy dmg and return to base.

Event is on the 28th Btw, if all goes well, difficulty is selectable (reward for higher difficulty is better usually equips, but generally all level give the new ships).

Time to talk a bit about event special setup... basically the Combination Fleet which is required for some maps:

What it is is basically a fleet being 2 fleets combined so 12 ships battle instead of normal 6, what you need to do is go to your 2nd fleet on click and drag the 2 Flag into 1 Flag
Image

A window for combination fleet will show up and there's 2 type of combination fleet you can choose: Mobile(Blue) or Surface(Green)
Image

Both have specific composition requirements and will give you notice if your composition does not match: (Screenshot saying need at least 2 CV and can't have more than 3 BB).
Image

If everything is good, no message will show up:
Image

Combination Fleet have 4 types of formation, not gonna go through details, but it is basically 1. anti sub, 2. defensive, 3. anti air, 4. attack. from top left to bottom right.
Image

The 2 type of combination fleet is slightly different, Mobile focus on Aircraft Carriers and Surface focus on Battleships in terms of composition. In terms of attack, Mobile have the 2nd fleet (the front line) attack first, while Surface have the 1st fleet (the back line) attack first. Only front line will enter night battles and for day battle front line will only have 1 attack phase regardless there are battleship or not.
Image

In addition to that, some other mechanics to keep in mind: combination fleet reduce hit rate, so you tend to miss more, don't equip over-sized guns on ships. 2nd fleet flagship will not sink if it gets heavy damaged. You cannot use submarine as 2nd fleet flagship.

Rare drop so far from event in E-1:

=M= currently pushing E-2 for Katsuragi =w=/
