* TrollingCreator: The game's lead developer, Kensuke Tanaka. At times, one can't tell whether what he did was a genuine mistake or completely intentional. (If he fixes it. If not, it's probably intentional. Probably.) Comparisons to [[VideoGame/WorldOfTanks SerB]] have been aplenty, as a result. Examples of things he did:

** However, API links are no longer a concern. A not-so-recent method involving cookie editing allows any foreign player to play the game properly. API links have also become less viable anyway due to them locking after a set time starting from the 2015 October 9 update (initially 10 minutes, now 2 hours). The lottery was also scrapped when the Hashirajima server, which is much larger than the others, came out.

** However, As of late though, API links are no longer a concern. A not-so-recent method involving cookie editing allows any foreign player to play the game properly. API links have also become less viable anyway due to them locking after a set time starting from the 2015 October 9 update (initially 10 minutes, now 2 hours). The lottery was also scrapped when the considerably larger Hashirajima server, which is much larger than the others, server came out.



** Some fleet girls representing ships from the IJN, the Kriegsmarine, and the Regia Marina, that actually existed during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII have yet to appear in the game. The most blatant case thereof would be that involving ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_aircraft_carrier_Shinano Shinano]]'': Kadokawa had already released [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2312428 Alpha Art of her in supplementary materials ''way back in 2013'']], but she has yet to make her appearance as of 2017. And with the successive debut of foreign Navies (currently at ''Four'', [[spoiler:the latest being the Russian Navy during the Spring event]]), and the introduction of more unique ship variants [[spoiler: like the coastal defense ships and escort carriers, for starters,]], the wait is expected to become longer. To add insult to injury, ''Warship Girls'' beat them to it, introducing [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2563602 its version of ''Shinano'']] first.
*** To put into context the effect of the said trope on ''Shinano'', ''Graf Zeppelin'' and ''Aquila'' (Both heavily unfinished carriers compared to the roughly-finished IJN supercarrier) were released in the Fall 2015 and Summer 2016 events, respectively, and were not even mentioned in early supplementary materials to boot.

** ''[[http://warship-girls.wikia.com/wiki/Warship_Girls_Wiki Warship Girls]]'' is Chinese game for the Android with a similar premise like Kantai Collection. However, unlike Kantai Collection which features mostly WW2 IJN warships, ''VideoGame/WarshipGirls'' features WW2 Warships from all sides of the War, and is also slated for an English release, which debuted at [=E3=] 2015. However, as of July 2016, due to bad blood between developer [=moeFantasy=] and distributor Patch Games, plans for an english version have been put on hold.
** In the US, another Kantai clone is [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/blackchickenstudios/victory-belles Victory Belles]], an upcoming Free-to-Play rpg collection game & warship sim for the Web and iOS by American developer Black Chicken Studios. Victory Belles takes it UpToEleven for not only having all WW2 Warships from all sides but having the ship characters voice by actual voice actresses from their respective countries (eg. British ships voiced by British voice actors and Russian ships voiced by Russian voice actors.), thus averting FakeNationality.
