    Got into this and it's surprisingly fun. I've been playing for a day and have accumulated 50 unique ships without hating the grind.

    It's a pretty chill game for having a gatcha.

    I've spent real money on the game, but only for outfits I really wanted. Haven't ever had to spend a cent on it to get ships.

    Mind, I've been pretty lucky (I got Shinano UR on my second 10 pull, which was awesome.)

    Very casual friendly game.

    Yeah, as mentioned upthread, it's very noob friendly, especially in comparison to a lot of other gacha games. The mercy system is pretty flexible, and changes quite frequently, so you can get some mainstays that way.

    It does get very grindy in events though - the current event is six stages, with 3-5 waves on each. You need to manually move your fleet to each one, and sometimes that isn't just a single click, as the turn limit means you can only move so far each time. It is something that annoys me with the events, and I don't grind anywhere near as much as some people do because of it.

    In other news, Funimation has picked up the physical distribution rights, and in typical Funimation style, have fucked it up. They're dropping the rating from MA to 14, and censoring large parts of it. I never got past around episode 3, despite meaning to, although I've heard that episode six is pretty much porn, even if it's all female.


    Everyone managed to get the UR Fluff? Mine came in around 50 pulls, and I'm now debating whether it's worth chasing more for the LB or not.

    Speaking of - UR (or SSSR) ships are now a thing from the Gacha. Introduced with Shinano, an IJN CV, they're (possibly) going to have an even worse drop rate, but it looks like they might have a mercy system similar to Arknights - you WILL get Shinano on your 200th (and multiples of) build, even if you've got one already. Otherwise, she's at a 1.2%, which isn't as bad as some of the others in the banner, tbh.

    Also, introduction of 'Munition Ships' as a class (only one, so far). These can equip cargo (only two, so far), which boosts your fleet:
    - Air Cargo, which increases AVI by 8%
    - Gun Cargo, which increase FP of Main Fleet and Large Cruisers by 10%.
    However, can only equip DD guns herself. Overall, not certain whether she's a big bonus or not, although I'm sure someone's theorycrafted a fleet or two with her already.

    FWIW the new UR Bulin is a permanent addition to the game, in the shop. (You need 4k~ of the stuff to get each one though.)

    No need to chase more Shinano if you don't mind waiting to LB.

    I started like two or three days ago, and didn't get the free ten rolls that apparently everyone else got for the event. I have grinded like crazy and managed to roll 55 times, and HAVE YET TO GET SHINANO. I don't have a stockpile of cubes like older players, and my current rate of a couple rolls a day mean I'm a long, long way away from the mercy system having any mercy.

    Meanwhile, Luckylee gets Shinano on his first roll ever on the game, Enterprise on his second, and three more enterprises while I was freaking out in chat about it.

    The gacha gods are cruel.

    I'm having fun with this. Composition stuff for ships probably isn't too complicated but I cba reading about it so I'm just using the cutest girls I have and hoping for the best. Fuck the several hour long commissions though they're so xp efficient but not being able to actually play the game kind of blows.

    Here's some (not necessarily fully up to date as of latest event) Tier lists.

    Ship Tier List (T0 = Best)
    https://preview.redd.it/gneo5s2i9gk...bp&s=9cd6cd52a98444b77e3593ccd90bcd28dcdaeaf2

    Recommended Equipment List:

    Those should be a good place to get started if you need help figuring out who/what to prioritize.

    Also, if you're just starting don't forget you can farm map 3-4 to try and get Kaga and Akagi, who are SR IJN Carrier's that work very well together.

    I also recommend the Azur Lane reddit, since they're very friendly and helpful.

    For equipment personalized on a per-ship basis, there's also this google doc:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...Al8bOGPUMp0oncVFeJAzSjdEgg/edit#gid=594301529

    As an example - Laffey has better gun stats than Ayanami, so it's worth giving her a higher powered gun. But Ayanami has an 'every X shots' skill, so still needs a *fast* gun.


    WRT commissions - I'd not worry about these, as a new player, until you've got a middling stable of ships. You want to have at least 13, so you can run two full fleets, and then send everyone else out. The 'auto-select' option will pick the lower level ships from Level 2 and up that aren't in a fleet, so you still need to manually select new builds.

    On my 163rd roll, the lord said let there be light and lo, there was light.

    Just got a second Shinano, sadly don't think I'll be able to hit the 200 pulls for the guaranteed one.

    I didn't farm nearly as much as I should have, but I got all the ships. Only thing I'll really miss out on is the trophy and the gold fighter from HT6.

    I have the gems, so figured I'd make a DLP guild so we can ogle each other's waifus and curse gacha gods when people roll SR's.

    Ah, I'm on Sandy, and too far in for switching to be worthwhile. If there's anyone else on the same, let me know, and I've got enough to set up a sister-fleet.

    I just realized that I screwed up during the the last event. Specifically that I mixed up Roon µ and Taihou µ.

    I built Taihou µ during the the event and because I thought that left me with extra room to spend points as I didn't need to worry about having enough to get her from the event shop and went and purchased all the unique furniture at the time, instead of grabbing everything at the end like I usually do. Then today I went to spend the points I had left over and decided to double check that I actually had Roon µ. Nope. Also, to add insult to injury I was around 500 points short of being able to get her anyway.

    A bit annoying as I would have all the event characters if I hadn't been stupid and missed the fact that Roon µ was a shop exclusive and that I in fact didn't already have her.
