It may have taken quite a while, but finally, the HMS Monarch joins the fleet to bring havoc to the Sirens. It was quite a push to get that final XP slot.

After consideration, I've decided to work on Roon next, since I have strong Iron Blood CA/CL ships, so hopefully it'll take less time to get her than with Monarch.

Can it be SNEK TIEM?

Okay, so there was an interview at Anime Expo where a couple of Yostar folks talked about what was in store. Long story short, the Anniversary Event will be in the middle of next month, and it will also allow players to get the Avrora, which was formerly restricted to those who participated in the CBT.

This was announced at AX through an interview, but we're suppose to get a special Eagle Union event before the first anniversary drops. They also showed off some stuff in a livestream, but here's an article to help with that. The twitter has already teased the HMS Centaur, and you know everybody is gunning for her, but they also showed off a brand new ship for a brand new class.

May I present to you, the USS Baltimore:


And I got to say, she's got an interesting design to her. To be honest, she looks like she'd be home in a space shooter than a naval shooter.

Now, according to some information I found for this event, we should be getting four new ships, all Eagle Union. The USS San Juan, the USS Birmingham, and a third unknown battleship that may be the USS Iowa. And if it is the Iowa, I'm curious to see what her design will be, since more often than not, ships of the same class usually have similar designs, barring exceptions.

The even is expected to drop on 07/24. Just from her design Baltimore will be a target, but I'm curious to see who this mysterious Battleship is.

I really hope the new BB is not New Jersey. I know why people are guessing that, but that was art on just the one turret.
Personally, I've always been fond of her 'Black Dragon' nickname, and would rather a design based around that then a post war, fairly modern piece of art found in the turret.

It could be that the design will combine them, if it is NJ. Though some comments have suggested that she’s a SoDak ship, so either Alabama or Indiana. Then there’s apparently Intern-kun’s response that the new BB isn’t an Iowa class ship, but there’s confusion over that.

EDIT: And the Eagle Union mini-event is up. It's part of the meta-narrative involving the war with the Sirens, so it doesn't appear to be WW2 related. You're ships are pre-selected for this, and they're Denver (who loves to sing), Columbia, and of course, the Gray Ghost herself, Enterprise.

While that's going on, it looks like the ship girls are enjoying a day at the beach, with Javelin escorting new arrival Centaur around, showing off her own swimsuit, as well as what some others are doing. Of course, Akagi is plotting to murder everybody because Shikkan, but we just ignore her most of the time.

Be confused no more- the new ship is the youngest of the SoDak sisters, the USS Alabama.

New event is up. And it is not a WW2 Narrative event, it's part of the meta-narrative. The Sirens just took a shot at the Commander (IE, you), just as Enterprise was away on mission, too.

Man, Hard Mode for the event does NOT mess around. D3 is at level 105 if you havent gotten to that point yet.
SP mode is a 'defend the base' mission with level 110 enemies. If you can do so and not suffer from the loss of firepower, Akashi and Vestal will be useful. The Siren bases can be out there, especially if you throw up the barrier.

I came back to the game after a long time away. Wasn't able to recover my old account so I started afresh, but the gacha has been... kind-ish to me. Got Warspite, Belfast, Takao, San Diego (I know), and even got Kaga to drop from the fox mines.

I'm really hoping to pull Baltimore from the event gacha as I already got Alabama. Bama is cool because I'm from there, but I really dig Baltimore's design.

San Diego is getting her refit soon'ish. You may want to hold onto any extra copies of her you get.
