☑ Ruining the reputation of westerners
☑ Blatant hacking
☑ Stealing the APIs of innocents
☑ Is responsible for killing off kancolle
☑ Forcing Kadokawa to reset APIs every so often
But that was not daiz, that was commie/RHE
Your name field is blank, daiz.
I second this.
>Stop playing for a few weeks
>Want to come back
The fuck is going on here
Scripters, cheaters, hackers and commie's modified client made the devs implement various anti-cheat measures.
They did the one that discourages F5 during sorties and could get you banned.
This week's update made it so API links reset every 90 minutes as an anti-cheat measure.
No, they are rude as HECK.
I can't blame them for not giving jack shit about us.
/jp/ just has a dedicated shitposter that hates kancolle for some reason, the threads are pretty good if you ignore that guy.
From their twitter
Seriously? It's an inconvenience that takes about 30 seconds to circumvent.
If that's too much for you to do, why the hell have you been wasting massive amounts of time on what is little more than a time dump.
You can't? All they'd have to do is remove the pointless IP block and everyone's problems would go away. This isn't even a decision by the devs, this is DMM's issue. And it makes no sense since they keep trying to open to foreigners by doing things like accepting their credit cards. Now I have to risk getting banned and letting the hours and cash I've given them go to waste all because of some cheaters who won't even be affected by this change.
We can't use API links anymore apparently, forcing people to have to find a Japanese VPN.
For some Teitokus, what are your sinking lines now?
Don't give people the wrong information.
Well, I don't mind using a VPN to start off a session of kancolle. APIs resetting would only affect those who feel that it's a major inconvenience, those who can't access a VPN from work, or if you play pretty much the whole day.
Not going to quit, but it's fun doing this.
I dont plan on quitting, im going to wait for a workaround or the vita game.
Might even buy a japanese VPN to play without worries but im not sure, all these plans look really expensive.
So there's no way to keep using the flash projector?
Do free Japanese VPNs work, I know a few that I use to watch region locked stuff on NicoNicoDouga.
If there comes a point where I can't really play because of some future shit they do.
For now I'll still play.
Don't abandon your ship girls just because of a little inconvenience, teitokus. Some of them are hopelessly autistic and need your guidance and support.
What is happening in this picture?
>All they'd have to do is remove the pointless IP block
This so much.
I've spent $100 on the game so far, and another $500 or so on merch. Let me play the damn game already.
A sperglord is teaching autist how to defend against a bully.
How to obscure the location of your bow in case of collision with Kitakami.
Ushio's autism vision intensifies
So this is what those flaps are for.
Any way to get past this? A bit confused on what can and can't get you banned. Is the Softether VPN Client manager okay?
KTKM-sama is friend to all, bully to none!
Ooichi will torpedo anyone who says otherwise
The /jp/ thread has the confusing answers.
Look, the only "safe" method now is private VPNs and even then it's only the safest method.
Everything else is running different degrees of risk as no one knows what gets you banned in this game
If you can't login using your API link, you were banned. Sorry.
If you can login, you'll need to reset your API every 90 minutes from now on.
I'll just wait a week or so for everything to cool down/people have more information on what the fuck is going on. Hopefully this is only temporary.
>Hopefully this is only temporary.
I wouldn't count on that.
There really isn't any other way to stop people from scripting. Blame the cheaters for ruining it for everyone.
Welp, guess I'm paying 10$ a month for a private VPN then. Fucking Commie.
I played exclusively on SoftEther VPNs for weeks when I first started and that seemed to work fine. Had an old computer running kancolle via VPN all day. Then I realized API in flash projector was a lot easier.
From now on I guess I'll just grab a new API token whenever it expires since that takes all of 2 minutes.
Login DMM through VPN.
Once you're in the game disconnect the VPN.
For measures against the unauthorized user
This is the reason why I dont want to use API anymore, triggering the security check multiple times might get you banned.
There are a TON of ways to prevent cheaters and most of them are far easier.
But realistically cheaters don't even matter in KC. There's no direct PVP and all "cheating" lets you do is play the game faster. There's literally no point in going after cheaters in KCV.
I'm sure someone will argue that it's because they're "losing money" on cheaters since they won't ever need to buy resources but this is again a hilariously misguided answer that assumes people who resort to cheats were ever paying customers in the first place.
I strongly suspect DMM's move here is to ensure people play KCV on their site, where they can get ad revenue (and the shop works) and has nothing to do with stopping bots. IP blocking foreign users is a related situation as they probably don't make money from their ad partners from foreign IPs since they're not the target audience.
The best thing we can do is try to convince DMM that allowing foreign IPs to play KCV is in their best interest.
There is more than a extra few minutes of my time spent connecting to a VPN at stake here - I won't touch this game again until I know exactly what might get you banned, and what is safe to do.
From what I've gathered public VPNs are not secure and I won't risk my daughters until a clear solution emerges
The monthly ranking rewards might entice some people cheat for an easier time placing.
Honestly, it wouldn't be worth it for me to play in the browser anyway. When I was playing in the browser before (using API link) the game would get super slow whenever it lost focus. Flash projector is necessary if I want to actually grind.
Also fuck whoever put us into this mess, be it Commie, scriptfags or the Chinese. Fuck you for ruining it for everyone else, faggots.
So, um... about all that manga.
The only play to not get banned is not to play
Just use KCV and SoftEther VPN guys. You lose, what, 1 minute in selecting a japanese VPN and disconnecting once you are in the main menu. This every 3 hours.
The idiots on the english wiki are making things worse
>Alright after this i vote we escalate the conflict and LoIC the DMM servers, they want to escalate the conflict we should act in kind.
Carriers trying to get Kaga to night battle (even though she's inexperienced).
Enjoy getting baned at the same time as the other 500 TTKs using that IP
>LoIC the DMM servers
That's not going to piss off DMM, that's going to piss off all the Japanese players and make them want even stricter security.
You know I just noticed , this could be our own "Pearl Harbor", they attacked us without a warning and left us in despair, history repeats it seems... I made this edit for you guys, even at the end we could laugh I guess...
Its a mix of all three, they all put us into this mess and none of those three are affected.
Script kids can still scripts, the chinese are tunneling and RHE is probably just going to get himself a japanese VPN with donation money.
Unless you have a private VPN, there's no other choice really.
Goddamnit that makes me angry. I bet they browse Reddit
So, anyone have experience with cheap, reliable VPNs?
None that we're about to tell you.
I remember when this happened to cinderella girls. Me and a couple of other gaijins making hundreds of accounts a day to win an event SR probably caused the whole thing.
Night battle is scary.
I'll just visit them every now and then...
It's not like they're gone forever.
This happened to cinderella girls? Did they get around it?
Fuck off back to facebook you mongoloid clapistani shit.
Responding feeds his ego. Learn to filter him if he bothers you that much.
Cheap, fast and reliable!
I was the one who taught everyone how to get those three extra stam pots. Never thought it would spiral out of control like that.
You needed a Japanese phone number to authenticate your account. Without authentication you couldn't do a goddamn thing. It would be like if KanColle made expedition rewards for verified users only. Things never got better.
Anybody knows Bep new lines?
Wow, I guess it could be worse.
I'm with this guy >>101181432 gonna put my girls on hiatus unitl someone comes up with a workaround that doesn't all get us banned the next day.
Japan never wants foreign money. And they wonder why they country is going into a recession
They are many with trial offerings, experiment with them
Well, the guy kind of has a point.
If a lot of foreign players are making hundreds of accounts a day to abuse a game mechanic then it makes sense they would block them.
Making it phone verification only is a dick move though
Most of the trial ones require your credit card and the ones that dont have a credit card requirement dont have japan or its a <24 hour trial
And they all look expensive as hell
>your credit card
That's what prepaid cards are for, anon-kun.
>And they all look expensive as hell
$5-10 a month, not too bad at all.
I'd advise waiting though, it wouldn't hurt to take a break for a few days until we know what gets you banned.
What is this flashing icon beside my fleets?
Well, I guess it depends on what expensive as hell is to you.
I'd say the average is $ 6-$ 15 per month. That's in my budget since I get other uses out of VPN other than Kancolle. (Streaming Gamepass etc)
It means you're about to get banned, say goodbye to your girls.
Nice try, I know it means give. Is that the food ship that reduces all fatigue?
No, it means you're retarded and didnt check the wiki.
It's not about not wanting foreign money. It's just you are not a big enough market. Even a few hundred spread active members over 4chan doesn't really do anything for them. And I bet a tiny proportion of that has actually put money into the game.
Complain all you want about Japan not wanting foreign money, but I don't think you're really considering how little you guys are actually really putting in.
(Secondary here, just looking up the radicals for practice's sake.)
Looks like 紹. I can only clearly make out the left (small-thread) and bottom right (mouth / opening) radicals.
Basically, gaijins don't have enough love for the game. Japanese are strong. They love strong.
White pig spam accounts and makes problems for everyone.
It looks more like "給", which is "give"
The only one I know is her new secretary line, and it could not have been more fitting. "до свидания". Goodbye.
Yeah, you're right. And it makes more sense.
(Does this mean I'm qualified for Hadena now?)
I don't really know what the fuss is about but I'm 100% certain you deserve exactly what you are getting.
Please try harder next time
I'll spoonfeed you : It means your ships are tired and the game simply tells you you have a food ship to spend if you want to reset their fatigue level.
( Fatigue regenerates quickly and food ships are rare though, so I'd advise against it )
>Start about a week ago
>Hey this is really fun
>Get all of my favorite ships
>API now resets every hour
My ships are lonely
Just wait a few days anon, let the newfags and leddit kiddies get banned so you don't have to.
If you got all your favorite ships in a week you should just be happy with the experience you had. If you played longer you would just find more ships that would be your favorite but refuse to drop for you.
This was inevitable.
It's not going to end, only get worse. Trust me on this one. I know how it goes. They don't want you, and waiting won't help.
That's pretty much my situation. I mean I don't really mind re-logging once every hour or so, it's not a big deal to me. In between waiting for expeditions and shit it's all downtime between crafting ships or poking Haruna because I can't seem to craft a Kongou.
First leviathan game gets closed and now this.
Such a terrible week.
Time to call it a day.
I hope this is all a bad dream and when i wake up tomorrow morning, everything is back to normal.
I've been trying to do the lottery the last week.
I'll worry about this after I get in.
Wrong anon, this is only the beginning of the nightmare.
This is great.
Working on my VN backlog now.
The face of evil.
Seems like I'm getting the cat every time I try to turn off my VPN, I'm guessing there's no real way around this?
I really don't want to stay connected to a public VPN since it's supposedly insecure and it fucks up my connection's speed
до свидания means "until we meet again" or "see you later". If she really wanted to say goodbye she would say Прощай.
>connect to Kancolle with VPN
>lost connection to Kancolle when VPN is off
Isn't that obvious?
2 levels from poi. 2 levels. I want to cash out for a private vpn.
I was being retarded
Been too long since I last connected to KC using a VPN
Do it, anon, you wouldn't want Poi to be left alone, would you?
Fuck. I just got Ikazuchi and her sisters up to Bep's level.
Dammit. Just when Hachi is craftable aswell.
Isn't it sad poi?
So as someone who just wants to get into this (I am always asleep when they have a lottery, so it's just a matter of time for me to get in) would it even be worth it at this point?
Dammit, I wanted my ship daughterus. Now it just seems like a bunch of work.
Replace Santa with Teitoku
Softether VPN is going to be overrun for few days at least before wikifags die off. It's not advisable to use Public VPNs right now
Don't be sad. I'm here for you aren't I?!
Eh? Oh...that's right... Admiral doesn't have me anymore
Will anime have cute abyssal girls?
Is she from a poi family?
Get a VPN for your best class Kanmasu.
If you don't mind relogging the game every 1.5 hours it's still playable.
Check /jp/ for a possible solution
Where is that image when you need it?
>stick Kancolle onto things
Oh is that what that doujin's plot came from?
What is Girls und Panzer?
That's not Fubuki
Are those models?
Maybe they give you codes for free game stuff.
But yeah shit's cray.
Fubuki doesn't even get the right card.
That's a Fubuki class destroyer I'd assume.
More like Whobuki?
Good thing I saved the PSD.
I miss my Ikazuchi. I want to hear her voice. RJ aswell.
Maybe later, I'll wait for a week or so before using VPN again. Playing on Firefox cause so much lag that it's almost unplayable.
Do we get the card aswell?
They got Hatsushimo correct.
If they are going with classes she should have been under Hatsuharu.
I want to go to the military modelling store where I buy my supplies and slap Kancolle equivalent characters onto their model kits and see the faces of the old men who work there.
How long are you guys waiting until playing? I don't wanna risk getting banned from a pub vpn so I was thinking until next Monday.
I'm sure the Akatsukis call you Commander.
If that's really the case, then poor Fubuki.
It's a devious joke that has been around for some time.
☑ Selling accounts on Chinese websites for $500 each
Next monday aswell.
They do, but that anon wanted teitoku.
If Ikazuchi's not here, then I don't want to work either!
Isn't it sad, you'll never get to marry them.
>but that anon wanted teitoku
Looks like I quoted the wrong post then.
Oh, I was actually making a comment rather than a request but that works as well
Alright people some good news. The KCV method I asked before seems to actually work.
>Run your VPN
>Launch KCV with the default address
>Log into DMM
>Wait for the game to load
>(Optional) Press start and wait for HQ to fully load
>Disconnect from VPN
I've got the game running for 2 hrs now without problems. Friend of mine had it longer, someone on twitter mentioned having it running all day.
It says "Fubuki Class destroyer FUBUKI"
Guess I saw wrongly then.
Just you wait, there'll be a solution to this. No matter how long it take.
Those look adorable. I want them.
Is the nightmare ending? Can we really play again now?
They'll almost certainly fix it eventually, but it would probably work for a bit. And you still need to go through VPN each time.
There's spectulation that they are cracking down on KCV, so I would hold off on playing for now
Actually, they tweeted that KCV and logbook are fine.
Source(s) on /jp/
I miss Yamashiro constantly being on my second monitor where I can poke her and be reminded that I'm not Fusou.
Hibiki/Verniy is the best Akatsuki.
She lets you sleep on her lap all day.
I hope my shipdaughters are safe from their lesbian sisters now that I'm now there to protect them.
I imagine Kongou and Chitose are in permanent ahegao mode by now.
But ahegao is the sign of happiness.
You guys are fucked even if the best you can manage is a half fix that requires VPN
I know that they tweeted that in the past but someone is posting on /jp/ that admins indicated otherwise recently.
My command of moon is too weak to know if I'm being Wo-ed or not.
>tell your girls to go on expeditions and doing exercises
>you leave quietly
>they enter your room to submit reports only to find you missing
>you never went back
The guy working on KCV is japanese, I imagine he would ask first for the devs permission or ask them if its really okay.
Here's his twitter
When did the Abyss Fleet change from being American to Chinese?
I'm sure Houshou can get take care of them
Fuck you! ;__;
There's a lot of people that speak japanese in these threads, maybe one of them could tweet to @Kancolle_STAFF and ask them if using KCV/Logbook is okay and be done with this.
Why... Why didn't I spend more time with my daughters?
Why couldn't I realise that until it was too late?
When they started submitting bunk LSC reports.
"O-Our Admiral is missing! Initiate a thorough search throughout the fleet and put the scouts on full alert!"
"We have a problem! Wo-class, 12 o'clock! Several heat signatures detected!"
"Admiral, where have you gone to? We need y—"
>If I continue being a good girl, admiral might come back and pat my head again!
>The Admiral Did Not Return
>On the 29th of Febuary 2014, Teitoku's time stopped at age 24.
Why did I spend so much time with my ship daughters if they were just going to betray me like this? Truly ヲ is the only one I can trust.
I don't know how much more of this I can take.
But how can you trust them if you can't even meet them anymore either?
ヲ pls go and stay go
I'm experiencing withdrawal syndromes already. I miss hearing Kongou calling out to me.
>On the 29th of Febuary 2014, Teitoku's ranking stopped at 500.
>if they were just going to betray me like this?
But they didn't.
They are kept captive by Japan.
Japan will only let you be with them again if you tell them the secrets of your country's navy.
Just a little tip: That really doesn't work well, it sounds forced and awkward. It should be "Wo，摆脱" instead; 请 shouldn't really be directly and literally translated as "please"; by itself, you usually say it when you're offering something and not when you're making a request (in such a case, you'd have to state an action afterwards). 摆脱 is a better way of saying "please" in this case, as it make sense even if you don't state an action.
Because I realize now that she was trying to help me the whole time. She was trying to destroy my disloyal ship traitors. She was willing to replace them as the perfect waifu. I just didn't realize it until it was too late.
Outspend every other nation combined
Now release my shipgirls
>On the 29th of Febuary 2014
>29th of Febuary 2014
Welp, that's that I guess.
You'll hit your daughters.
>Four... a..m... The admiral is here too... zzz... Admiral?
Just a little tip: That really doesn't work well, it sounds forced and awkward. It should be "Wo，拜托" instead; 请 shouldn't really be directly and literally translated as "please"; by itself, you usually say it when you're offering something and not when you're making a request (in such a case, you'd have to state an action afterwards). 拜托 is a better way of saying "please" in this case, as it make sense even if you don't state an action.
You mean it's not 拜托?
Post the whole screen, also what did you do?
>Admiral's good is getting cold, why isn't he back yet?
How'd that happen?
What did you do to get banned?
IME typo, hence the deleted post.
>Don't cry, Inazuma, the commander will be back soon. He promised us a surprise on Valentine! He's just preparing for it!
>Commander will be back. He have to.
And then Ikazuchi break down crying along with Inazuma and the Akatsukis.
January I meant.
Have you filled out your application to join the Abyss Fleet yet anon? You can get a free loli if you start today.
Your fleet has been officially been DECOMMISSIONED, effective 01/30/14, 0127hrs.
The IJN screwed you over though. Not your ship daughters. You abandoned them, not them you.
Wo pls go
>Admiral has been taken away by those strange girls with cats, he'll be back, right?
But the Wo have already won.
Wo pls come
Well, it's obviously google-translated.
>get tired of how anti-gaijin and pro-autist it became
>replace it with kancolle, easy for gaijin to get ahead and is actually fun
>this shit happens
Fuck you, anon. Don't send chills down my spine with those words. I-It's just a random error.
I guess the haters were right that soon almost nobody would be playing this anymore.
They just had no idea why.
Whelp, i guess we need to go drop 2 nukes on civilian cities so we can call it even.
That's a copypasta ban message, anon
wo pls 碁 and stay 碁
(Translation: Wo, please play a game of Go, and continue playing Go.)
You've been dishonorably discharged.
I'd rather play with them a game of Reversi. Go hurts my head trying to understand it from Hikaru.
Looks like white got wrejtd as HELL dude
I quit CG as well when they started requiring a JP SIM card to do anything
At least this time it's somewhat easy to get around
So how will you say your last farewell? I'm going to finish getting Bep to 99, and try to get Shoukaku to 99 too, and hopefully not get banned before Valentines day so I can at least Zuikaku.
>This account ID, is currently banned.
Go is piss easy to play, you only really need to care if you want to gid gud
So how will you say your last farewell? I'm going to finish getting Bep to 99, and try to get Shoukaku to 99 too, and hopefully not get banned before Valentines day so I can at least marry Zuikaku.
Nah, the verification didn't effect me. I even verified a few anons here when it was all going down.
The trade restrictions and neutering of events are what got me.
Well, in case anyone cares (heh, who am I kidding), there isn't a 1:1 way of translating "please" between English and Chinese.
Please drink a cup of tea
Enjoy. (whilst holding out a cup of tea)
After you. (whilst pointing at his cup of tea, in his hand)
Please leave this place. (In this case, saying 请 by itself without stating an action makes no sense)
Please, I don't want to get married.
Please... (makes sense)
I beg of you, please don't kill me.
>求 (by itself, for the apologiser)
(Makes no sense.)
>求 (by itself, for the apologised)
(I command you to) Beg me.
/a/ - Chinese Culture
I laughed. Now I feel sad though.
Error cat would be more accurate.
Maybe people will start getting banned, but nobody who claims to have gotten banned has given a real explanation as to what they did to deserve it.
They don't call them Chinese cartoons for nothing. Sorry, I'll stay on topic now.
Are there others besides me who now get the cat all the time (<20 min) even while playing fromm DMM while steadily on a VPN?
You have a shitty VPN or your own internet is shitty.
Well fuck. I'm logging off for the time being. Just burned the 10k resources I had left on construction. I finally got hachi and I'll be welcomed back by a Taihou.
I'm going to miss her idle line so fucking much.
But the people leaving aren't the Japanese, who make up the majority of players. 0.8% of the playerbase leaving isn't going to make a significant impact.
The only kanmusu we'll be seeing from now on.
At least she's cute.
Did you guys notice they never reply? Or just do anything else other than posting the "ban message"?
Curiously, why is anime called Chinese cartoons?
are you the real wtH !HELLB/V.96-kun, or are you an imposter?
wtH pls stay and stay stay
Do you really think the 4chan haters give a shit about non-4chan players?
Because its made in china.
Kongou really sooths my heart. Please post more kongou
Yes, that's why I wanted him to post the whole screen, i.e. indicate that it wasn't something other than a copypasta
(It's always the same image with no identifying information)
Reminds me of that deleted Chinese thread here that was apparently made because of all the doujins on sadpanda which were uploaded in Chinese instead of Japanese.
Ask an American from a rural town in Mississippi to put Tokyo on a map.
Nice to see some Kongou love in here.
It's just not the same, anon. It's not the same. ;_;
oh god what
It's just a fucking joke you retard.
FUCK YOU COMMIE!
Kongou's account is kill
Yes, it is a joke, and the joke comes from the stereotype that the typical American hick doesn't care to consider the differences between Chinese and Japanese, since "they're all the same gook shit".
Nintendo is Chinese, and so is sushi. Meanwhile, Jackie Chan and Kim Jong-il are famous Japanese people.
You mean jackie chan is not japanese?
Don't be silly, even I know Tokyo is somewhere in the middle of Japan, I've seen images of it all the time.
The joke comes from the comic with the dad saying "Son, you watching them Chinese girl cartoons again?"
Why do you think the dad said that?
The humour isn't intended to come from a 'hyrr amierca is dumb!!', but if that interpretation makes you feel good, I won't disturb you any further
>I'll just keep the Admiral's desk warmed up until he comes back.
Jackie Chan is Korean.
No, Hong Kong.
Which comic is that?
>which comic is that
I wish I could at least buy kongou a teitoku dakimakura to keep her company.
And Chitose needs her admiral lap pillow.
I never said that it's a "hurr america is dumb!" joke. It's a "hurr, the uneducated older-aged rural people are dumb!" joke.
People from urbanised areas, and younger people, don't not apply. However, there are people that do, not just in America, but elsewhere as well, that confuse China for Japan.
Even Kaga can't take it anymore.
She is such LOVE
Is there a comic called Leave?
Actually, does comic refer to the image-heavy medium or is it short for comedian?
Why are people mentioning Commie?
Just being lolsorandum or what?
It's a tongue-in-cheek joke. You're supposed to be pretend self-depreciating. Do you really think Brits say "SIX BONG" when it's six o'clock, that Americans say "5/5 breddy gud" whilst on motoraids, and Russians spend every day on their life drinking Krokodil and injecting vodka?
If you can't appreciate this type of humour, that's fine. But don't go round jumping about, saying that people should be offended by jokes that aren't supposed to be offending in the first place.
"Your fleet has been officially been DECOMMISSIONED" sounds more dramatic.
>>101187877 works too.
If you're this oblivious, I'm not going to spoonfeed you.
My Kongou is going to be overly worried if she noticed I'm not in the office for time being.
What does a subgroup have to do with kancolle?
Kaga understands her duty.
Watch out for RHExcelion
The #1 public enemy of kancolle
He is the man responsible for
☑ Ruining the reputation of westerners
☑ Blatant hacking
☑ Stealing the APIs of innocents
☑ Is responsible for killing off kancolle
☑ Forcing Kadokawa to reset APIs every so often
☑ Selling accounts on Chinese websites for $500 each
>Kongou when she realizes that you will never come back, and proceeds to bomb everything else with her seeing as it is pointless to go on without you
Where were you anon?
Crying over losing my shipdaughters?
Fuck off commie scum.
I didn't have any kind of sappy relationship like "shipdaughters" or whatever else you liked to call them. They were my soldiers and comrades in arms. When I never return, they will simply have to replace me, to continue the war.
I would like to think they'll miss me, but we all knew the risks. I wish them good hunting.
But there's no chinese

29/01/2014 - RIP Gaijin Admirals
Where do you live that the year is 29 months long?
Anywhere in the world with a dating system that isn't retarded?
That's dd/mm/yyyy format.
DD/MM/YYYY format master race nigga.
MM/DD/YYYY is retarded, he's using the best format
>ordering digits from smallest to biggest
>not ordering them from biggest to smallest
Fuck off Commie scum!
When you look at the date, you probably want to know the value most likely to have changed.
When sorting through documents from 2013, you know they're all from 2013. You want to quickly be able to tell what day.
Buy that logic, we should order all numerals in reverse since the value with the most amount of change will be in the decimals.
Why would you buy his logic? He's offering it for free
As a burger, 2014/01/29 is easier to read since the month still comes before the date.
Also, ordering things such as file names is easier with this format and actually works.
By that logic, everyone would be using YYYY/MM/DD. But you're not using that either.
Well, it's better than m/d/y at least, I just don't get that shit
Feels good to be YYYY/MM/DD masterrace.
The superior date format is clearly YYYY-MM-DD or YYYY年MM月DD日.
1. Logical (large-medium-small, no arbitrary and random shit like the American system)
2. Easy to sort files and database cell entries
3. Dating system used for thousands of years in China, Korea, Japan and Vietnam, before the Gregorian Calendar was even rendered in a number format (using numbers instead of words is a modern invention in the west)
4. Is the international ISO standard for dates and times
5. Japan uses it, therefore it is superior over western imperialist dating system.
The date should be 2014-01-29 or 2014年01月29日.
That's purely political. The only logical dating format is year, month, day.
>he's using the best format
That's not the ISO format.
>As a burger
Are you tasty? Also, do you come with fries and ketchup?
Man I'm hungry right now, especially after reading your post.
6. Fits in together with time formatting (HH:MM:SS is from biggest to the smallest).
I thought Americans told the time by using MM:HH:SS
I wouldn't be surprised.
They probably do
Good job derailing the thread fagtrons.
The American system doesn't use 60-second minutes, but rather a system of inch-seconds divisible by 12. 12 inch-seconds make a foot-second, and 5 feet-seconds make a minute. Therefore, what the rest of the world displays as "3:15:16PM" would be rendered in America as "15:3:1'04'' (Sun down)".
You don’t need a VPN to get a Japanese IP address. You can use the Tor bundle for that.
Find your “torrc” configuration file and add this line somewhere:
And you’ll only get Japanese addresses when using Tor.
They're just trying to divert their minds from the horror that is losing contact with their entire fleets.
>what the rest of the world displays as "3:15:16PM"
Which rest of the world are you talking about?
Enjoy the NSA stealing your DMM account.
We actually do.
Here, fallen teitokus. Have some music to soothe your minds.
American here, if you use 15:00, how can you tell the difference between (Sun up) time, and (Sun down) time?
For example, if it's 00:5 (Sun up) right now, how can you guys tell that it's not 00:5 (Sun down)?
I really need to filter you
TOR stinks according to those guys. They can't break tor
How many exit nodes are operated by Mossad?
I just remembered you use to shit post in tera generals and bitched and moan about people not helping you when they did offer.
15:00 is 3pm in the afternoon, 3:00 is 3am in the morning. Double-digit is afternoon->evening time.
Because 24 hours. If it's night then 3:00, day 15:00.
So, when there are two digits, I'm allowed to have my daily prayer to Jesus, followed by my Sun down appreciation food eating meal (officially sponsored by Nike(TM), Mountain Dew(TM) and Cohen Pharmaceuticals(R))?
Are you seriously this retarded to not understand the universal 24-hour clock?
How much do you think would the population of Kancolle fall after the January 29 patch?
It's obvious he's not being serious.
>B-But he's an American
Not much, gaijins are a small percentage of the population and normal nips can just play it from the website anyway.
C-can we post our favorite kongou video?
Why couldn't they just go with a global server for Kancolle instead of forcing players to use all kinds of shit to get into the game?
Why would they want filthy Wo to infiltrate the servers?
Because the game is intended for japanese players?
Because they don't need filthy gaijins to sully their superior Japanese creations.
Perhaps it's because of the lack of server capacity.
This song seems to be fitting.
Considering they need this lotto system for just japanese players, that could be a big possibility.
Because it's a game about the pride of the grorius nippon navy, no gaijins allowed
So what ya'll gonna do, rev up those VPN's?
Worst comes to worst, i'll just switch to a private VPN.
I love my ships too much to give up this easily.
i like this fuck off memem
It's difficult to monetize foreigners.
I'm willing to bet that they utilize cash shops less, have less ad penetration, and are less likely to buy Kancolle related goods.
Given all that, it's no wonder they don't encourage foreigners to play this game
>implying we care a lot about the IJN than the kanmusu themselves
In other news, Million Arthur gets an English version.
It's okay, they'll release an international version with censored/modified cards.
Only because we normally have to jump through so many hoops to do it. But hating money is very easy with Kantai Collection, especially since they accept foreign credit cards to buy items in the cash shops of games that don't support foreigners.
And then they'll translate all the names 4kids style into American warships. Complete with a dub.
So how hard are the nips laughing at us right now?
You haven't seen the cash serious Rage of Bahamut players drop. Gaijins who are serious are just as bad as any other people when it comes to this shit.
I wonder if they even know that we're fucked.
Yeah, I wouldn't even play it. I dumped money on the Japanese version and I have rare ships on the Japanese version.
There's no way in fucking hell am I going to get another Suzuya to marry.
Can't you go straight to the game page without seeing a single ad along with using ad block?
Because gaijin media will rip them a new asshole if they find out.
Shouldn't this thread be on /jp/, since it's clearly about the game?
There are individuals who are the exception to the rule I hated money too and am using private VPN to play the game
But you know the old maxim, 80% of your profits are generated by 20% of your customers. The 20% of customers in this case are going to be primarily Japanese because they are the ones who can easily hate their money, buying figures and merchandise goods without having to worry about overseas shipping.
Foreigners are largely going to be in that 80% category that's not generating that much revenue for the company.
Japanese leeches are useful for maintaining domestic hype but foreign Kancolle players are pretty useless except for the rare few who hate their money. There's no need to jump extra hoops for largely useless customers.
If I was more cynical, I would suspect that this change was a way to separate the useless foreigners from the profitable foreigners.
The ones who hated money are much more likely to use VPNs to continue to play since they already demonstrated their investment in the game.
A lot of wikifags are likely to die off naturally in the coming days, which would lessen the server burden and eliminate useless leeches.
My speculation is that the next wave of bans (possibly for using public VPN) are going to target those who haven't used foreign cards.
All of this could be bullshit for all I know, but it does make some financial sense.
Why not? Are you proposing you go to /v/ or /vg/ instead?
just like Monster Monpiece?
You'll get a 45 second feature on CNN about those wacky Japanese and their cartoon girls. Next, a segment about dancing cats.
Americans do not care what the Japanese do. Why would Kadokawa give a shit? The Japanese didn't give a shit when Americans told them to stop hunting dolphins and hell of a lot more Americans cared about that than some cartoon girls.
Please explain why not.
Yeah, but those guys are going to use VPNs anyway and Kancolle devs aren't going to ban hardcore gaijins who hate money unless Kancolle devs also hate money.
They probably think they just got rid of whole lot of wikifags who probably wouldn't spend money anyway
Alright, they'll get a 45 second feature on CNN. Meanwhile, on Korean Central Television, university professors and analysts are interviewed over this shocking new occurrence of a rise in militarism in Japan, and whether or not the government should expand conscription, increase spending on landing crafts, and amass personnel over the maritime border with Japan in response.
Cartoon girls literally being raped versus cartoon girls who wear skimpy outfits and dress up like battleships
You can surely see how people might react differently to it
They're more busy about K-Pop and showbiz than anything. Hell, they made a documentary about motherfucking fingernail accessories there.
...and it will be a 2 hour exclusive special, might I add, that will be simulcast on Seoul Broadcasing Station, KBS, and MBS, and repeated with follow-up shows every weekend.
Sounds like the kancolle devs are throwing high-fives around the office as they read the wiki.
Except that this is the glorification of the navy which attacked Pearl Harbour.
Do you not see the news writing itself?
When has the Japanese ever given a shit about what Koreans thought, and vice versa?
They are going to raise a shitstorm over Liancourt Rocks anyway, so who cares
I dumped 16k yen and yet I still don't want to use private VPNs. Do I really have to switch to private?
>When has the Japanese ever given a shit about what Koreans thought, and vice versa?
Depends. Do you still want to be playing and not be banned?
If you dumped that much, what's wrong with spending more? Other than that, /jp/s still looking for solutions.
Do you metaphorically rape cartoon girls instead?
No, I don't really buy it. If this was the height of anti-Japanese hysteria in the late 80s, yeah.
Nowadays? You'll probably see a few dumb blog articles and novelty "Haha, look at what those crazy Japs are up to" features.
That's just diplomatic shit. Why do they need to apologize over cunts destroyed 70 years ago? And it's not like Japan hasn't been punished enough by it.
>U.S. Law Calls for Japan to Apologize over ‘Comfort Women’
>implying the Japanese give a shit about US law
Those fucking gooks never cease to amaze me.
Don't you mean nips?
Maybe I should word it differently.
Do you think South Korean criticisms of Kancolle will gain any transaction in the Japanese media and affect Kancolle at all?
Those articles demonstrate that the Japanese government don't really give a shit about complaints from South Korea. The current government is pretty right-wing as well and have done much more controversial things.
If anything, complaints from SK and China will boost Kancolle popularity within Japan from the right-wing crowd, not diminish it
Is this what we are arguing about, I've lost track
The law isn't even a fucking binding resolution. It has no teeth in it.
If Japan says "Nah", U.S. can only go "Welp, we tried"
U.S. signed it probably because they needed some kind of boost from SK on some measure. It's just a PR move for SK.
So... What happens now?
The dream is over.
Waito piggus go home.
Either refresh API every hour, or DMM "accidentally" reverses this change.
All hope is lost. Abandon ships.
Now you hope they realize that what they have done hasn't gained them anything and revert it.
Someone finds a workaround and we continue as we did, we continue as we did just that we're stuck with the VPNs and nothing happens, we continue with the VPNs and end up getting banned because >mutliple accounts, you buy a private VPN line and play like that, you give your shipdaughters up.
Some servers seem to be down. Ringa is down for me, anyone else?
You tried dmm website?
It's not enough that commie have to fuck up subs, now they have to fuck up our game too.
A private VPN line won't make you much safer. Word will get out of the good ones and everyone will flock to them making the exact same problem. The only way to not risk it is to move to Japan. Or wait for the vita game and hope it's nothing more than a port.
You are banned. Too bad.
Tawi Tawi here.
Someone translate something! I need to light my heart up.
Has it actually fixed anything? From the sounds of it, it only affects commies translation patch.
what? What are they up to this time
I'm not that stupid, the twitter says Yokochin is down too.
This is new to me, is my server down or am I getting purged? I can't tell if she's fixing shit or preparing the banhammer.
Mind rape counts as metaphorically raped I guess.
I think he means the word "literally" was redundant.
Preparing to gaijin-proof it harder.
>preparing the banhammer.
See that hammer that cute little girl is holding? That's your fate.
Time to ban all those dirty VPN users.
Can you seriously not read the katakana saaba meetenance?
Mind rape still counts as rape.
Check your privilege CSI scum.
What do we know about the vita game?
I can't see them literally porting the f2p structure across.
It appears that the login servers are down, so we can't get in. Doesn't affect those who are still in game other than Yokosuka I guess.
I just wanted to do some practice rounds before I head out for the reunion dinner. Damn.
>it only affects commies translation patch.
Not really. It makes the use of macros less attractive, you need to have the site open to do it long term or refresh your api token every 60~90 minutes which is unappealing.
Bots will get around it.
Mostly people, even Japanese, will be playing a whole lot less because they can't use KCV and other things which helped them manage their time better, so at least people will progress through new content slower which is probably part of what they were after.
Seems easy enough to get around
Haven't actually tried using it yet though
Putting the final nail in the coffin.
Until you get a server that doesn't load the game properly.
Or until they start banning people for their security tokens timing out constantly.
Really? That's the first time I've heard anyone say that.
Point of "literally" being redundant still stands though.
Seriously, you lot.
>[18:00] The currently downed login servers as well as Yokosuka servers are currently undergoing repairs. As of current, new login sessions into Kancolle are currently impossible (currently showing the maintenance screen). The staff is currently working hard to restore them. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
It's code for introducing new mechanisms to block gaijins.
Stuff happened, and while I can still hate money for the game, I can't anymore for anything else online.
I wonder if people would recognize Kuroshio's cuteness.
Her accent is cute and her enthusiasm for battle is adorable.
I sure hope this downtime isn't because some raging gaijin motherfuckers are ddosing the login servers as revenge...
It's Chinese New Year eve. Every chink will be eating dinner with their family, the relatives and all the extended relatives they see once per year.
Chinese/Lunar New Year ever.
Well, it coincides with a new server opening, so it could be a problem with server integration.
Why are nips so anti-fun?
Because baka gaijin are suppose to have fun with nip games
But nips love fun, like seeing gaijins despair.
Refreshing API token once in a while is common security practice.
The time has come.
Is there even an economy that gaijin could fuck up?
Not to mention how easy it is to circumvent. You just have to be a bit of a scripter, look at the JS and make your client do the same shit.
Well, we kinda expect that. Who's next, Hiyou?
I'll be waiting for the PSVita game to come out.
Meanwhile, I'll be spending the rest of my day hatching Torchics.
And then this modern Atago shop popped up on futaba.
Too bad the Haruna-class destroyers with Haruna and Hiei are out of service for some years.
What? Fellow TTK are you still sane?
God, IJN ships were ugly.
It won't be long til mods made the distinction between /a/ related kancolle threads and these.
Please take this kind of discussion elsewhere.
People with private VPN do have an adventage now.
Japan, open the ports!
No, bring your black ship and we'll talk
and make Haruna to the MC of the anime.
Go back to making stupidly bad anime, Trigger.
>You were not the only one who put up the cold-hearted Admiral exterior
Its okay, they won't see your tears.
They will not miss you, they will keep fighting under the delusion you have imprinted o them.
Guess it is time to use my final card.
Purgatory, onward to Japan.
Strange, I've been having to 90 minute reset for a while. I just took a 7 hour sleep and I didn't get cat. Logged off and re-did the API and it's still working.
I guess there are times when the reset counter don't work?
>Try Public VPN because fuck it
It's a banhammer flag, right?
It was because of the log-in server maintance.
The cat will find you soon.
Congrats anon, I hope I could also get her soon.
I'm missing some ships from all other class, but if I got Hachi at least my submarine fleet will be complete
Also, Yayoi and Uzuki look amazing. It's the same guy who did Mutsuki and Kisragi?
If he could do two more Mutsuki-class I'd just build a fleet containing those six.
Nay, the last 2 are likely to be done by the other artist.
If you're lucky cou can play until the next maintance.

You will take my big gaijin dick whether you like it or not, resistance will only make it bigger.
Wo, go to sleep
>japan ruins chinese new year.exe
I was planning to have a lot of fun with my girls, why must they do this.
You think this is bad. Just wait until the next update on Valentine.
now that kancolle is over what games are like this
i study a lot so being able to do stuff in kancolle every 10 minutes was nice
Do you have your warcrimes-chan yet?
Don't you give up yet, admirals. Your daughters, and wife are still waiting for you.
The fuck does this thread have to do with /a/
She doesn't want to appear here.
Getting heavy cruisers like if the Washington Naval Treaty is still in effect.
fuck the game
Know your place Ooi.
The non-bootleg version, the one that actually took effort to get, yes.
She's at 98.
It's taking me more effort to get than beating E4.
Thank you, now I need to find and level one houshou.
>In the closet
is this some sort of LGBT euphemism?
The 60min draws are making me want to protect too many smiles. Is there a script that downloads them easily?
Also, couple of new yokosuka chapters "soon".
Yes, for 2 months now I think
Is she a build only or does she drop somewhere?
Resting in my room since she cant get anymore experience.
Crazy admirals, crazy Kongou sisters... only Haruna is still alright.
>Ooichi gets the D.
Justice is served.
Looks like the API resetting backfired hard, because the log-in servers can't handle all the access over the DMM website.
They also don't resetting the API links at the moment.
Which magazine has the Ise/Hyuuga poster?
I'll buy the magazine and try to scan the poster.
Why is Calm Sea the only good KC manga?
So... It is happening?
Blanket ban on gaijins to stop them from hammering the login server. It is really over this time.
Is safe play kancolle again?
Oh wow, seems like a good time to get back to playing God Eater .
GE2 DLC when?
How can KMS screw it up so bad
When was it unsafe to play?
Hyuuga and Ise are the best bis sisters you can have.
So yesterday we couldnt get in and today the servers are on fire according to this thread.
What awaits us tommorrow?
Surprise Midway event.
All data on the servers get wiped due to a freak accident. Cats may or may not be involved.
>still no hentai with Error-chan.
I want a doujin with error-ko, where are the doujins?
An update like PSO2 where it wipes every files on your HD.
I escaped that because of Kancolle.
She is too powerful.
She would be like a yandere, never leaving you alone after you give her the dick.
So is the nightmare over? Can we return to our shipdaughters now?
Login servers are back. Those who were playing in the first place were unaffected.
ugh, is there a maintenance going on?
Also what happened with all the whinny admirals from yesterday?
So, whats this?
moved over to the Idolmaster generals.
That pic is mfw I get assaulted by cats trying to get back to my kanmusus.
But Iku likes it, she's a slut
A fate worse than death.
She's obviously suffering, just like me.
>API problems yesterday
>do alot of fuck it crafting
>getting Taihou, I-8, Yukikaze and a bunch of missing ships for many quests
Now, I'm poor but I got the most ships I wanted.
Brace your anus. They are going in dry.
I am the only one who thinks having to re-log every 90 minutes it's not that big of a deal?
Are you a cute girl too anon?
Looks like it's a big deal for their login servers, because they keep crashing.
Spent the last month trying to get shimakaze/yukikaze/subs.Got only one yukikaze.
Last week decided to go for the kongou sisters, since I have like 13 Kongou's but no Haruna/Hiei.
Decide to try subs recipe one more time to see if my luck goddess blessess me with I-8, gets shimakaze.
I don't even know what to feel.
This>>10120569 and you might be sharing same IP from your public VPN with other admirals.
Which is bannable.
No, it's not if you're patient and meticulous enough. I'm on different OS depending on what I'm working on and Windows is the only one with VPN and it hinders my workflow.
Feel blessed. Shimakaze is by definition rarer than Hachi
"Filthy Gaijins pls leave so real TTKs can log in"
>DMM always bitching about muh bandwidth and muh servers
>implement a security measure that puts a heavier load on them
lel, you are blessed, I can't into shimakaze.
Good thing is I finally managed to beat 4-1, and magically got pic related.
RNG fairy it's a bitch most of the time, until she decides to give it all.
Is the battle with VPN and DMM finally over?
>rarer than Hachi
Fuck you, I have 3 Shimakazes and 2 Yukikazes. Still no Hachi.
That Abukuma has no idea the world of hurt she's in for
Not to mention that Speedslut is the most useless "rare" destroyer in the game.
You should have started the game earlier then.
Hachi is a guarantee drop. God knows how many 2-4-A you need to do before Shimakaze decide to show up.
The API refresh isn't going anyway but I hope they consider extending the expiration date to once a day.
Yes. We lost.
Yeah, I guess I will be okay with it. Although I am not into shimakaze, too slut for me, I prefer wife material like inazuma/atago.
Also, I already have fused lots of abukuma's, and still didn't got a single Kinu.
Fun fact, Kitakami is my flagship.
dunno... Shimakaze is pretty much the best destroyer with Yukikaze together until the other destroyers hit the kai ni forms.
So for the word maps like 3-2 she is the best.
>Hachi is a guarantee drop.
E-4 was hellish to many people. It was a RNG fuckfest and a test of endurance.
My black colored admiral.
Login servers are back. For how long more, who knows.
Don't remind me, I beat up to E2 and decided to leave the event there. There was just two days left anyway.
KTKM likes her torpedoes deep if you know what I mean.
some public VPN users are banned.
I used public VPN only to get the api link, then I disconnect and use the flash projector, ok so far
I still don't know what is the fucking problem.
I always thought that they needed to add "only in japan" because of legal issues.
And that they actually likes that people from the entire world is going through an ass just to play the game. I mean, who doesn't like that a lot of people are playing and liking their games?
I'm doing fine here.
Buy something for your poor daughterus you poorfag.
You have an office full of cardboard boxes. You are not fine.
Japan, they hate everyone outside of japan.
waito piggu go homu and all that
Okay, I laughed.
They need those people to be paying customers.
Wrong gender for "going Greek", though.
