Anyone else play it? I recently just got into it after jumping through some hoops from start-up.

In case you don't know what Kancolle is. The game is fully JP, and there's no inherent English translation, but there's interfaces and viewers you can use to play it with ease. It's probably a bit more known about being that one anime about anthropomorphic ship girls.

I like to call her 10/10ryuu.

So how far are you into the game? I've only recently started, so I only have CLs and DDs. Hard to get lucky with a drop.

I'm pretty far, I think. Been playing for almost a year, HQ lvl 94.
Ya drops are hard early on, stuff like getting all the kongou class can take a while. Of course, once you get them though, the endless sea of kongous begins.

Whelp, I recently got lucky last night and managed to get Fusou along with a few other Heavy Cruisers. Think I can finally progress now.

Nice! Fusou was my first battleship too. She carried me through all the maps up until like 2-4 or something. Lucky you! Which heavy cruisers did you get?

Kako, Kinugasa, and Aoba - only using Kako in my main fleet right now, though.

My current fleet is:

Battleships take up a lot of resources, I'm starting to realize.

Also, unrelated Kongou:

Ohh man, those are some solid shipgirls, lucky you. And ya, battleships take a lot more than other stuff. Battleships and carriers will just eat your resources before you realize what's goin on, it's crazy.

Not yet it isn't! Life is never complete until you get her to level 99 and hand her your first ring. I'm almost there myself~ http://puu.sh/l1uQT/001dc2c937.png

Good luck! God knows how long the marriage flag will take for me.

Thanks! The quests to get the ring and stuff aren't so bad, they're actually super easy. It's just the grind... it's unreal. 97-98 is like 50k xp or something, which is a bunch but yknow it's manageable. Then suddenly it jumps from that, to 150kxp for 98-99...
All I wana do is show Amatsukaze I love her, but it's taking so long :(

Whelp, looking forward (or not) to that pain once I reach higher levels - Tenryuu isn't even Kai yet...

You'll get her there eventually! Don't worry, once you get access to better maps like 3-2, leveling becomes a gorillion times easier. Do you have 1-5 yet? 1-5 is really good for leveling DDs and CLs as long as youre under HQ lvl 80.

Yeah, I've been farming 1-5 for quite a bit, up until I can access the other maps.

I have a question though, once my DDs and CLs get to a decent level, should I use them to progress?

I'm pretty sure if you've got fusou, you can progress regardless of your DD and CL levels. The only time DD and CL levels matter is 3-2 I think, since that map, to clear it you can ONLY use DDs. Level doesn't increase much, aside from like evasion and stuff. Kai-ing them on the other hand does improve a whole bunch, so if you're looking for a stopping point, I'd say once they're all Kai'd. Or kai ni'd, depending on who you're leveling and how much time you feel like spending on this.

Got Akatsuki kai'd, think I'll progress once half of the fleet is done.

I've been playing on/off for about 2 years but I had to make a new account because I lost access to my original one and there is no tech support for gaijin ;_;. It's been a few weeks since I last played because I've been so busy IRL, but I love Kancolle so fucking much! This past weekend I cosplayed as Naka at a local con and it was great.

Did either of you watch the anime? I only liked it because I already liked Kancolle , but otherwise it wasn't really all that good; there was a distinct lack of direction and pacing seemed off IMO. Can't wait for the sequel!

I haven't watched it yet, but I hear that it's mostly aimed toward the audience that's already a fan of the series.

Wow.

This game seem pretty neat, considering to try it but...

It'd take me a while to know what is what since I don't know shit JP xD

Hope there are English guides around

You bet your butt there are. The English wiki and Himeuta.net have some good guides. Once you know what buttons to click it gets super easy.

Yeah it really is. So go watch it ASAP!

There's actually a few UIs out there that you can use to navigate through the game, as well as helping manage your ships better. One is a standalone app, while the other integrates directly into your browser.
