I wonder what's this all about? @_@
It will likely be a specialization. She may gain better AA at the expense of torpedo and yasen. A ghetto Duck in a nutshell.

Or perhaps she'll cook better.

I know, the coloring kinda mkes it look like it could be from the anime though, as the Crane Princess' face looks more streamlined. -Might as I said just be the coloring though.

It's not might. It is not an anime preview. Simple as that.

The event is pretty much finished for me, Daitou is the only ship I didn't get but after the 55 runs it took to get Tashkent and 80 to get Hamanami, I have spent more time farming than I expected. Now it's time for DD/Kaiboukan leveling and ressourse gathering. Hopefully, next event might not be a big one...

I really REALLY hope E7 phase 2 is a so called "victory lap" as some people claim it to be, because the first phase was an atrocious pyrrhic victory.
It is as stupid as Summer 2017 LD, although it is kind of worse psychologically speaking, since it isn't even the final boss.

As shown in my tweet, 140k. I'm not particularly confident considering P1 alone made me bleed 100k.

I am at last dance. I started E7 at 88kish fuel. I finished my shortcut unlock and debuff runs at 18k fuel. I am slowly recovering my fuel, at 33k atm.

The debuff runs were the worst for me. Its as if the CV-hime AND the node after it were determined to not let me pass. Victory lap, my ass. I am also recovering my chevrons for my LBAs, just out of caution. Tonightm I gonna do sparkle runs for my support fleet. I am not sure if the historical bonus damage work for support expeditions tho.

Winter 2018 E7甲 Part 2 LD

AND THIS IS DONE!

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

The Witch is choked, dead, defenestrated, destroyed, drowned, extinguished, eradicated, erased, exterminated.

I, again, tried my luck through patient, tedious, sparklecolle runs to triple sparkle not just my support expeds. but also my fleet. And as Kakurin called it, the troll sub, CVhime or that fucking torpedo squadron in node W laughed at my sparkled combined fleet, in each of my 8 runs in Last Dance.

The first run that made it to the boss was an absolute disaster, I dont event know why I even tried to push in Yasen.

The second trip to the boss was one of those So Close moments or "If Nagato from friend fleet was not taihaed or if Zuihou was not damaged, maybe...".

The last trip to the boss have some incidents like Hayasui getting to orange at the air raid, I pushed on, crossing my fingers. Then come the last node where finally my BBs and Cranes got their shit together, as in they targeted the Dysons instead of the small fry. And Musashi got enough of that shit and Kurita Punched Abyssal Zui Zui.

Here is the replay to see it

While I liked the intended overall narrative of the event. There were some things that rubbed me the wrong way, such as going back to Surigao with the Nishimura fleet, which goes against the narrative of Leyte Part 1. I feel tired, mentally exhausted for pushing myself through E6 and E7. E6 part 2 and 3, and E7 part 1 were the worst parts of the event. And I dont know if I'd get the patience to do E2 and E4 in 甲. As you can tell, it was not a full 甲 clear.

Congratulations. Can imagine the effort spent (and hence I went with 乙). At least you don't need to farm as far as I remember.

Yes, at least I didnt have to go back for Tashkent or Jervis. I know people in the discord room where I idle that still couldnt get either of them. Depending on my resources and my luck I wanted to see if I could try getting a Iowa dupe. But the sheer amount of resources spent, and post-clear laziness made me go F it.

Now the most important now is to get my resources back. And I repeat, this is not a victory lap. Sure, compared to the shithole that Part 1 is. But my 8 runs, 5 retreats, 3 boss trips, and regarding the fuel I have left (I started my runs of today with 30k fuel), it was testing whatever patience I have left.

And reseting to a lower difficulty would have felt like an insult to my girls who made it so far, especially after E6. Sunken cost fallacy, all that.

Done with the event.
General course for me was 甲甲甲乙甲甲甲. After few tries in E4甲, I've concluded the resource spent there just for an extra report wasn't worth it at all.
Meanwhile, I wasn't exactly satisfied how leyte part 1 went, so went full 甲 afterwards. Suffice to say, E7 was a rollercoaster in a very bad way.

This event "does" feel like a special one, which is understandable since it is Leyte after all. So I appreciate the general mood and extra effort with all relevant girls for this one (be it CG, voice lines, "scenarisation" and all).
But seriously, I really wish they stop throwing multiple stages maps in our face (this was already annoying with TP => real gauge stuff, but still tolerable to some extent), because not only it has a major effect on how you have to preserve resources and all, but it takes way too much time. Regarding this issue, E6 and E7 were huge offenders: insane pre-boss nodes and unlocking process being harder than the final boss itself.

But above all else, the number of bosses we have to take down is really ludicrous. It really is exhausting and it require some luck with LBA but also the friend fleet.
Speaking of which, friend fleet feature is a huge red flag because it could potentially be a second LBA rng festival in the future. Not only they are subject to the usual RNG such as targeting, accuracy and critical damage, but they have awkward equipment setup AND aren't modernized at all. Furthermore, the composition of the friend fleet is too random and some fleets are way stronger and useful than others to the point it doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
If anything, Yamato friend fleet felt like an awkward admission that E7 final boss was too hard and they had to introduce a beefer support although I wish they included them for the first E7 boss because she was WAY more annoying to deal with.

I really hope the clearing data for both Leyte events will finally knock them some sense unless they really want to put even more emphasis on the difficulty segregation. Summer 2017 was already painful as it was, but both Leyte event displaced the difficulty to something uglier than merely a "super tough boss".

I do share some of your worry about the Friend Fleet, in it's current form it's not much reliable. The question is, what will it be in it's final form; if it use shipgirls from another player instead of random one it's likely to be more reliable.
Fleet fought in PvP are often more efficient than the one they put for the Friend Fleet.

oh no please no fleets from other player.
Tanaka will just implement it the worst way possible - meaning random.
Meaning trolls with lv 1 Ships (like PvP)

To add to Klashikari's issue:
At first it kinda felt like the Western Fleet was totally OP - then people realized that their equipment was totally fucked up.
The Russian fleet on the other hand would have been more useful if there wasn't a composition where the heavy hitter of said fleet was using a flashlight while not being flagship.
