    Welcome back, though I'm not sure how many of the old regulars are still around. Meanwhile, Kongou finally got an art update Kai San I still like the vanilla damaged art better

    駆逐艦 means destroyer. If you look at all the ship types in the dictionary, you'd see that all of them end with 艦. Because 艦 means "ship" in Japanese, and in Japanese every ship type ends with the word "ship" (such as the "ship" in "battleship"), which is omitted on the cards.

    Kantai Collection Discussion Thread Kai

    It's nice to have some conversation back in this thread again, even though half of it is about another game Disclaimer: opinions ahead I definitely agree that KC has some oddball and cheesy designs especially during its infancy (looking at those alien looking ships by a certain artist). But I feel like in general, for something that I can't quite put my finger on, KC's shipgirls just appear more fitting for warships weighing thousands of tons from the previous century. Could be that KC's character designs on average tend to be more reserved and mature, while AL's tend to be more extravagant and petite in terms of body proportion; or the fact that KC loosely adheres to certain standards such as displacement/class correlating to age and height of the shipgirls, whereas in AL you have the loli Nagato mentioned above. Finally, as probably already mentioned, it's hard not to appreciate the attention to details in KC's designs, whether it's extremely detailed equipment that most people can't even see without zooming in, the accessories wore by certain shipgirls, or historically accurate camouflage or damage shown in some damaged art. That being said I haven't looked that closely at AL shipgirls so if AL has something similar feel free to post here. That or I am just biased because KC came first and I haven't bothered to play AL..

    In terms of character design Kancolle is leagues ahead of AL. Gameplay though..... Unrelated, the WoWS collab we deserved:

    To all the naval experts in this thread, does anybody know what this is on U-chan's starboard bow?

    No one. Obvious trolling is obvious.

    The General HQ surrendered earlier this time. Anyway, would be pretty hilarious if the reason they got banned was for the "sex" in "Essex" The same in Japanese: Essex: エセックス Sex: セックス

    Rare photo of Shimakaze helping a TTK upgrade his 12.7cm gun into a 12.7cm High-Angle Mount So to make ships of a certain nation distinguishable their solution is to give them rather arbitrary national flavors.... Did WG help developed Azurlane?
