Just a friendly reminder, the Haifuri Campaign is effectively live or CLOSE to going live, to my understanding. To enable it, players MUST visit the main page here, and click "I Want to Join". So those aftpained about anime do not have to participate at all.

For those that do:

Quote

New Collection

Our newest Collection assembles a vast cast of High School Fleet characters – over 35 character portraits over 6 categories. 

For every category you complete, you get a special anime-inspired flag to fly proudly into battle. Earn all 35 character portraits and score permanent camo for Yamato, a special Kure Maritime High School flag, and an achievement!

649d5592-fae1-11e7-8dd6-d89d6715223c.png

High School Fleet character portraits can be found in special High School Fleet Containers earned through special missions completed with High School Fleet vessels. Each Container contains two random character portraits plus ten “Zulu” signal flags. Duplicate portraits can be exchanged from the Collection screen. Any single portrait of your choice costs five duplicates. If you already completed the Collection, High School Fleet Containers yield 15,000 instead.

The Collection, and the missions to earn Containers, won’t be visible or accessible unless you click the “I Want to Join” button [on the HSF page]. The button will be active between Updates 0.7.0 and 0.7.2. 


Once you join, the first mission is available until Update 0.7.5. Random character portraits will start appearing in regular Containers (except Supercontainers) after the first portrait is collected. This only applies to Containers obtained after the first portrait is unlocked.

You earn portraits faster by taking on certain missions with certain ships, and getting special High School Fleet Containers. These renewable missions are available for

  • HSF Graf Spee (20 additional Containers)
  • HSF Harekaze (20 additional Containers)
  • IJN Yamato (10 additional Containers)
  • IJN Musashi (10 additional Containers) 

To access these missions, play a single battle with the corresponding warship.

 

For further clarification, after a player joins, they just need to play one game in a ship and get an HSF crate to unlock the HSF Campaign in the Profile. The Ship-specific missions are completely separate from the HSF Campaign and guarantee more HSF containers.

Maybe I am blind, but I clicked the button and it says I am now taking part but when I go in game there is no missions or anything. Do I have to have one of those 4 ships or something?

Yes it says to earn them faster, which sounds like you can earn them with out it, but now it looks like you have to one of those period.

Yup. You need to finish a battle in one of those ships.

Furthermore, to collect the pieces from regular daily container drops you need to enable that collection (which disables Isoroku collection if it's active for you!).

My crate dropped a friggin' duplicate to boot ... first crate = two of the same crap.

  • HSF Graf Spee (20 additional Containers)

  • IJN Musashi (10 additional Containers) 

I am a little confused.  The only thing I would like to get from those missions is the optional Yamato camouflage.  I do not have any HSF ships, but I do have Yamato and Musashi.  So, that means I get 20 additional containers based on the information on the site.  Will 20 containers be enough to get a shot at Yamato camo?  I am not buying a ship from premium shop to get a camo, that's ridiculous.

Ahhh, never mind, I just saw this part:

So it may take a while.  A long while.

HSF Crates replace Yamamoto crates, or so I'm told. So you just need one HSF Crate to open up the Campaign in the Profile. The ship missions are separate, to unlock the repeatable container challenges.

Dilemma dilemma ...

I never grabbed HSF Graf Spee because I have the German one and I never grabbed Harekaze because I'm not really a DD player. But I'm a sucker for collections and 'must' complete them all. I shan't have an incomplete collection sitting in my profile.

Can I still complete the collection without HSF Graf Spee and Harekaze?

Does the HSF Graf Spee allow for German captains and can be used as a trainer?   I've got the Spee from last year.

Yeah. That was implemented in a patch some time last year, the ARP ships started counting as captain trainers for the IJN and the HSF ships as captain trainers for their respective nations: HSF Graf Spee for the Germans and HSF Harekaze for the IJN.

You can solve your addiction without HSF ships, HSF ships just drop more containers.

Well I just played a bit and once you start it, you can get a HSF collection from normal daily boxes. I guess it depends on how long it lasts, but I would say as long as you have a yammy or Musashi it should be very do able with just one of those and doing daily boxes for the next 5 months and fairly easy with both of them as that is a extra 20 crates or 40 collections.

As far as I can tell, after joining, one just needs to earn a single HSF crate to get the ball rolling. One game, one HSF container. Then that unlocks the Campaign in the Profile, and lets HSF containers start dropping about as often as Isoroku containers (some said it replaces Isoroku containers), from what I'm reading at Reddit from those who started earlier.

The HSF Ships are just specifically for unlocking and playing the repeatable ship-specific challenges, which guarantee an HSF Crate per round up to the maximum number of times it can be completed (10 or 20).

My only disappointment with this Campaign is that Captain Isoroku the Cat is not an unlockable.

Then I would say you will have no trouble. Just those will get you 40 HSF collection which even if half is duplicates put you over half way done. Long as you farm some daily boxes over the next few months till 0.7.5 then it should be easy. I am just unclear if they stop dropping in regular boxes after 0.7.5 or if you can still get them there just not in the missions.

after unlocking and playing one of these ships, the challenge shows up in your mission box, it also allows you to collect these through co op games as well.
