    Azur Lane discussion thread!

    A couple of days late posting this here, but I researched Mainz. Now I'm (slowly) working on Drake's research.

    I think it was only 5 cubes. Might have been 10, but I'm fairly certain it was 5k coin and 5 cubes. But hey, 3 DR blueprints out of one research (with a chance to get bonus prints) is nothing to sneeze at! Edit: Yeah, looking at the wiki, that research in my screenshot was only 5k coins and 5 cubes. Not the worst, as there are some research projects out there that cost 10 cubes.

    I think the general consensus is, if you ever run across a research like this: it's well worth the investment of resources. Though they are extremely rare. I've only seen like, maybe 4, and the previous ones I think were Azuma, Azuma, FDG. Or it might have been two FDG's and an Azuma, I don't remember (because I didn't do them as I'm not researching or planning to research them anytime soon). That's what it gave me.

    Players who have multiple PR ships at Dev30 and/or maxed out fate sim are generally spending cubes on research projects. The research that costs cubes gives the best return on investment in PR blueprints. I've always been hesitant to spend cubes on research, because there's almost always an event looming on the horizon. But I've done a few and the amount of blueprints the higher rarity/tier ones can spit out doesn't even compare to the other researches.

    Bring back old Ops for NA! New Ops for NA!

    Finally. One of the hardest drops to obtain. (Rares are, imo, arguably harder to get off a map than SSRs)

    Actually, in the new event currently running in CN and JP, some of the map drop ships are Hipper, Deutschland, 557, Scharn, and Gneisenau. https://azurlane.koumakan.jp/Aurora_Noctis

    Azur Lane: Third Wave

    To be fair, those event ships in AL that have a rate-up of less than 1% are able to be purchased in the event's shop and/or via an event map drop. Usually both. So it's not like they're really making it so unlucky players have to open their wallets to get all event ships.

    The gacha rates in AL are phenomenal for a mobile gacha. And the devs, Manjuu, are extremely generous. You should see the piles of stuff they throw at us as compensation, especially when they screw up. I'd imagine the vast majority of AL's income is via skin sales, with using paid-for currency for building materials (stuff used in the gacha system) being a lesser source of income comparetively. I'd say that I'm positive that the loot box bull is 100% WG and has little to nothing to do with their contract and what Manjuu wants out of it. It's almost solely WG using the same methods they've been using for more than a year or two to try and make more money. Edit: Look, to be clear, I have no issues with WG offering big bundles and the loot boxes. All I've ever been asking for is the alternative to pick what I want and buy it. Like what we had with wave 1 and wave 1's re-run (though it took kvetching on the forums for the wave 1 re-run to have sales of captains individually).

    Azur Lane: Third Wave

    Still no individual captain sales!? WTH? This was brought up for wave 2 as a problem. Spreadsheet may not say so, but it causes a loss of sales. I'm one of them. @Hapa_Fodder is there any reason why the only way to get the Azur Lane captains is through bundles and gambling again? We were told that the feedback during wave 2 about wanting individual captains up for sale was being sent up the chain. Now I'm not even sure it ever makes it to the devs. Bottom line is i don't want all the captains offered, only a select few. And I'm sure as hell not gambling for them. What makes it seemingly so difficult for the devs to grasp that not everyone is going to drop hundreds of dollars on a bundle with stuff they don't want, just to get what they do? Why is it so difficult to add shop entries for each captain and sell them individually? It was done the first time, and never since. This is ridiculous, in my opinion.

    I'm saddened by the fact that allegedly Eugen isn't a candidate for a retrofit. I think she really needs one because at the very least she needs a little boost to her firepower stat. That and getting MGM+1 instead of torp preload. But hopefully Eugen and Takao not being on the candidate list for a retrofit is like the one commenter is speculating, an indication that Manjuu may be looking at revamping torp CAs instead. If they're planning on going back and reworking most of the older CAs to not be torp preload and instead give them MGM+1, so only the true torp CAs like Ibuki can keep torp preload, then that would be fine too. Ultimately, I think so long as Eugen had MGM+1 she'd do a bit better offensively even without a boost to her current firepower stat.

    Eh, I've not wanted so may premiums that I have to wait 6 months just to get one I want. My last one was only a few days ago, I bought Mainz with the renewed armory coupon. Before that it was, I believe Wichita. And around Christmas/new years they did add those 3 other ship coupons temporarily, with 10%, 15%, and 20% off bonuses. I used the 20% and 15% off ones to get two other non-T8 premiums (I've only ever used the normal 25% off coupon for T8 armory premiums) from the armory. Exeter, and I think Dunkerque, though the other might have been T-61 or Z-39. I can't recall exactly. Before the December coupon renewal last year, I got Massachusetts with dubs too.

    You get it around your anniversary with WoWs (when you joined/started playing warships), and I believe it only is for the third year and afterwards. And the coupon only lasts 3 days, if I recall correctly. I've been playing warships since OBT, so my anniversary with the game actually falls closer to the games official release out of OBT. And since WG hadn't been doing this kind of loyalty reward until a couple of years ago, I had already had 3 years of playing under my belt.

    This is why all my recent premium purchases have been with doubloons through the armory. I'd rather spend the money, when I do, on doubloons using the 30% coupon we get once a year, then spend those doubloons on ships in the armory with the armory coupon.

    If Perseus become another healer CV, I guess that'd be cool. But I'd really love to get a healer CV and repair ship for each nation instead. I'm sure each nation has at least one that could fill the slot. the Ironblood, Sardegna, and Vichy/Iris might need theirs to be represented via PR (the healer CV), but I would bet they all had at least one auxiliary ship that could be used to become a repair ship in AL. I just like having matching aesthetics, so using Uni/Ryuuho/Vestal/Akashi outside of their respective nations make me feel a bit weird with how I usually set up my fleet comps.
