Tried and see if there was a azur lane thread but didn't see one so made one. Anything related to AL is welcomed but keep the fanfics to a minimum since reddit has been infested with them. So also point out i have never made a thread before so apologize in advance if i fuck something up.

Well might as well throw in on the one gacha I have played.
Gameplay might as well not exist, but the waifus are top tier. The loli Jap ships are great, but Le Malin rules above all. Elegantly Lazy and an adorable voice. Would Get Drugged By Her/10

I only play it to hear the lolis talk and see the artwork. Haven't touched it in quite a while but when Le Malin gets a wedding skin I'll reopen it.

I missed out original on malin but seeing she got in perma pool im build after event ends. Gameplay could definitely be improved but i feel like it gets the job done unlike many other gachas. Kirov has become one of my new favorites also helps her VA can speak Russian which is pretty cool. Might wanna play the game again since ark royal meta has just been released.

Russian fleet coming along nicely and just got done with odin. Now im down to last PR ship which is mama FDG and most PR ships are dev lvl 20 atleast. Hoping they add something more QOL to operation siren since grinding a month in it just to have your progress wiped next month sucks. And im excited to see whats gonna be the next collab event since the got better each collab. Though topping DoA might be difficult. Also please let me know if posting to often is a no go as im new to forums.

I'm in Avrora, but I am quite weary of connecting this account to any other accounts I have.

Also does the friends stuff do anything?

Friends are just so you can chat ingame separate and help with meta boss. You can also visit each others dorms but there hasn't been anything else yet. Probably gonna add something with it like guilds has been. Also im on sandy(numba one!)

So, commanders. I'm considering starting Azur Lane. :watching:

Up until this point, I've largely kept a rule of only two gacha at once (in my case, Fate/Grand Order and Arknights). I had almost gotten into Girls Frontline, particularly around the time of the VA-11 Hall-A event, but after having missed it and learning that it was gone for good, my interest soured.

On the other hand, Azur Lane has managed to hold my interest all this time, though that is largely owed to its seemingly endless supply of well-designed and largely attractive shipfus. I hadn't even looked at any gameplay footage (or at least remembered any) until very recently, and I found it not only interesting but something I could enjoy myself.

As such, I am giving consideration to breaking my "rule of two", and I'd love any answers to the following:
  • How difficult would it be for someone to start now?
  • What is the purely free-to-play experience like?
  • What sort of artifically limited content will I forever miss for having started so late?
  • What sort of opportunities exist to acquire limited content from the past they have made available or acquirable in some form?
  • What is the danger of the recent censorship inflicted upon the CN servers infecting global as well?
  • Who is best girl?
Thank you in advance for your help. :flan-yea:

I wouldn't know anything about new player experience but Azur Lane is pretty generous compared with most gachas, it gives you plenty of gems (premium currency) as you finish the main campaign, so long as you don't buy the skins then you'll have all the gems you need. Ship building is done with wisdom cubes and coins, both fairly easily acquire currency, and I personally have never spent any gems on buying them. You should be able to get pretty much everything in the game in due time, Italian bote event is rerunning soon and you can play old event maps that won't be reran through the war archive features. Except for collab content (RIP any future hololive stuff). The recent CN ship removals are highly unlikely to be passed on to the other servers, JP is still a significant market and the community's horseshit laws only apply to their shithole country. There is a possibility that those ships may receive less skins, but that's pretty much all.

Sorry if I miss anything I typed this up at night and am tired but can't sleep.

Also I am of the opinion Javelin is best girl, she may not be the very best ship, but that genki keeps the depression away.

Wow, thank you for this response! I feel enlightened and somewhat more motivated to join the Navy! :gurayaya:

This is really interesting to me. I think I had always heard it said that any money was actually spent on skins, but I didn't anticipate that the overwhelming majority of ships were able to be acquired for free. In the end, that's really what matters to me, having the characters and such. Skins and other cosmetics like that are a very welcome extra, but I can get by if I have to do without them.

Interesting. Is this "war archive" feature what I had alluded to in terms of being able to replay old content? Why is this specific event no longer able to be re-run? Are there many events like this?

This is good to hear, but it's also very important to me. Several of my favorite shipfu designs were included in that list of removed characters, so even if they do receive less skins, that's a fairly nasty blow. As long as that cancer remains sequestered in China, I guess that's fine enough. I would just really hate to jump aboard and then have the waifugeddon move over to global.

Here's more details on the War Archives feature: https://azurlane.koumakan.jp/War_Archives

As to why the events aren't reran, I can speculate it is because rerunning these events would not leave room for any new events, as typically each event will drain you of all your wisdom cubes while trying to get the ships, so typically there is a break in between events.

Its fairly early on with not too much trouble. However don't scrap any ships before you have a setup you like. Keep grinding world 3-4 for akagi and kaga and rest of them. Good stuff drops on that world.

You get some gems here and there but not that frequent atleast from mails(devs fucked up or milestone of some sort) so i would suggest you either save for dockspace if you want more ships down the line or save them for your waifu so she can get a skin.

The only content you missed forever are collabs that yostar has no rights to. Im 90% sure Neptune won't get a rerun but they made crosswave with them so i dont wanna rule it out. Also collab ships tend to be decent but nothing you absolutely need other then bragging rights.

There is some events thats been placed in the archives where you get keys daily. So you can get ships and equipment there but wont get shop items which are in reruns. I think all the ships you can get from the archive are in the build pool.

I have linked a picture on another thread where the EN side said they wouldn't censor. They also know that if that comes to JP and EN the game will absolutely die.

Cant pick really since i have oathed over 50 girls now i think. But Bremerton hits something in me.
