    Lag spikes

    Same issue here and also on Verizon FIOS. Seeing a trend showing up. When I run a ping/trace monitor while playing, it doesn't detect anything but game will freeze for about 1-2 seconds and 'catch up' afterwards. No other online games seem to be affected. I'm trying to gather some info to forward that actually shows the issue happening..

    Slowing down is backwards...

    This is what you see in the Titanic movie at the iceberg scene, right?
  3. My Grandfather was drafted into the IJN and served as a radioman stationed on both Paramushir and Shumshu Islands in the Kuriles. His unit wasn't directly in combat, but he was there as part of a support/signals platoon to assist the navy security units stationed there as well. After the Soviet invasion of the Kuriles in August 1945, he was captured after one of the final battles of WW2, the Battle of Shumshu island. Taken POW, he was sent to a labor camp in Magadan Russia where he survived until he was repatriated in 1949 on the ship Ehiko Maru. I also have a great uncle who served on a ship which he went down with based in Southeast Asia and another great uncle who was in the IJA during the Malay campaign, but unfortunately I haven't been able to get any further information about them.

    [Tutorial] [] Sound mod 101 (now with bonus tool)

    Looks like they fixed the issue with 7.6. With my own voice mod selected, but using the HSF captains, the HSF voices are playing. Edit: Nevermind, they didn't... If there's any events I don't have set in my personal mod and the HSF captains do, then those will play, but otherwise it's the personal mod.

    One thing I give them props for this event is that for the most part, hard and medium rewards are the same aside from some consumables, medals, and the Tokai 901st squadron on E-3. The lack of the paid gacha is what keeps me in Kancolle over other games.

The main fleet in the back will have firepower reduced E-2 and beyond, the 3rd fleet can be organized into a 7 ship mobile fleet. Under certain conditions, a damaged ship can retreat singly from this formation. The equipment 'Mobile fleet HQ' needed to perform the retreat can be obtained after finishing the first half and obtaining 'Action Report' item and using it with the existing 'Fleet HQ' equipment.

    Makes sense.. it's Fuso, Yamashiro, Mogami, Shigure, Michishio, Yamagumo, and Asagumo. On another note.. 対馬(つしま) - 艦名は長崎県の対馬にちなむ。1943年7月28日、日本鋼管鶴見造船所で竣工。佐世保にて終戦。1947年7月、賠償艦として中華民国へ引渡し、臨安(Ling-An)に改称。後に敷設艇に改造。1963年除籍・解体された。 Tsushima, named after Tsushima island. Launched in 1943, transferred to ROC navy in 1947 as a reparation ship and renamed Ling-An. Dismantled 1963 Tsushima kai rename to Ling-An? Could this be the first step to getting Yukikaze Kai2 aka Tan Yang?
