    No. You can F5 with a regular browser too. As long as you do it before the battle result screen -slash- as soon as you see your last attacker failed to finish the boss. Then your LBA won't lose any exp (or gain any). Sometimes your fleet planes too, but not if they already lost a whole bunch of planes before the boss battle (which is why it doesn't work for CTF route because TSU). Basically the concept is any losses during the boss battle will be cut off.

    I just abused F5 to keep my LBA from losing their chevrons. It however does not stop fleet planes from losing them so I was pretty much half-forced to resort to STF as I got very tired of grinding planes in 1-1. That and I was running out of time.

    At least you've logged in. A bunch of us didn't even touch the HQ since Winter 16 Myself OTOH got quite burned out by the increasingly long sorties... Back in the pre-MI days event sorties are like 6~7 mins tops. With CF it bumps up to roughly 9~10 mins. With Hayasui (meaning more excuses for devs to throw you through extra nodes) and LBA now? My E7 sorties were 15 mins long. Sheesh!

    Daijoubu. At least wasn't 2hp. Though it was really more funny than frustrating in my case Anyone got the honor of 1hp-close in here?

    ^ I burned through about 9~10 cup of teas. It did make a difference for me both in CTF and STF. Thing is I needed my fleet to survive long enough to fire at the boss fleet and not miss during the day as I couldn't just count on the air raids alone. The long trip aka low fuel penalty did not make it easy. I tried doing 2 FBBs in escort and it didn't really do much since my first fleet simply cannot take out any of the Dysons after the air raid. Not even a half dead DDyson. So the NB always ended up being a lottery. After started applying the tea though, I was able to consistently take out at least 3~4 of the escorts and came close to finishing Central a few times. That tiny bit of refuel made enough of a difference for me to not hesitate to burn through them.

    I had Hayasui carry onigiri simply because I had nothing better for her to carry other than tea and some ASW to handle sub node Who knows, maybe that onigiri might make a difference for Beaver (who was on CI set up) who was lined up directly behind her in escort fleet.

    It's finally over: In the end I went with my least preferred strategy (surface fleet) with some of my least favorite ships, but you know what. It's less plane grinding work and compass trolling so I won't complain too much. 10? chipping + 19 runs to land the final kill, I consider myself lucky. Full sortie: Primary Objective: Clear All Hard - Completed Bonus Primary Objective: Obtain Harukaze - Completed Secondary Objective: Obtain Oyashio - Abort Secondary Objective 2: Obtain Arashi - ??? I might try to find Arashi in the remaining 24 hours, but I'm satisfied even if I don't. Good luck on E7 Saki!

    Well... totally didn't expect S ranking E7 (albeit it was just chipping run), let alone seeing her: Kamikaze won't be lonely now.

    I'm soooo gonna retire after this event. This game is bad for the heart: Round started with my own initial airstrike whiffing then support airstrike nuking her with 585. Best part is that both Henderson (plane wiped out) and Megane Hime (double crit by Oyodo) are disabled. That's it though. Only manage to take out one artillery imp. Every other Dyson's alive albeit mostly disabled. Started NB as Me 5.5 (Choukai chuuha) v Central 5, with Central's at 227 HP. > Tone nuked the green Henderson > Shigure + Kasumi finished off Dyson > Oyodo crit Central but left her at 9 HP (屮゜Д゜)屮 > Last attacker (that CAN damage Central) = chuuha Choukai double attacks Central 1st hit >>> MISS! ( ゜Д゜) 2nd hit >>> HIT! Ψ(゚∀゚)Ψ *inaudible crazy cheering in the background* Now, onward to procrastinating E7....

    I'm fully aware of what I'm up against and what I need to do. My 5 medals aren't just for show ye know But you see, 'knowing that you will win' and 'actually picking your tired buttocks up and grind your face through' are two very different things.... After this war, I think I might just retire.

    Oh, that isn't enough to one shot it. I know cuz I tried S Ranking with the same exact number of daihatsu / drums only yielded me about 160ish TP. My set up was CAV 5DD + CL 3DD 2CA Edit: After some major procrastination I finally got around to work on E5 (ugh) and got stupid lucky in my 3rd E5 kill zone sortie. - LBA didn't manage to sink anything but dealt 135 damage to Lycoris and disabled the two DDs.- Fleet survived Lycoris bombing with minimal damage.- Support shelling took out one of the Ru.- Chikuma survived the other Ru's double attack (?!)- 4 green/yellow and 1 orange of mine made it into night (?!) vs Lycoris + 1 orange Ru I hope i didn't use up all my luck here... There's still E6 and E7 to come... :uhoh:

    ^ Don't think it's realistic to expect an event map that requires a prize ship from a previous map of the same event... But her stats certainly dictates that she will be a good choice in transport missions.

    Transport node? Or were you talking to me?

    That and her evasion is a whopping 98, second only to Yukikaze & Shikamaze who are both 99

    <--- Got crap done. Been abusing the Mutsuki's low hp for every transport mission since Fall 15. You just gotta know how to use them. So why?
