** Some of the more powerful ships, like the Yamato-class or the Hiyou-class, are classified as slow speed, which means they have disadvantageous routing.


Added DiffLines:

* ObviousRulesPatch: In the first event with Land-Based Air Support, the combat radius of LBAS was calculated based on the maximum range of the longest-ranged plane, meaning that you could have one long-legged plane and tack a bunch of stronger but shorter-ranged planes on to the squadron. Subsequently, LBAS combat radius was changed so it went with the shortest range of the squadron's planes.

* DifficultySpike: Summer 2015 E-1 is pretty easy even on Hard mode, giving admirals a false sense of security. Then they get sucker punched by E-2, which is much harder even on Easy.

* GuideDangIt: The game has several game mechanics that qualifies as this in spades. Even for Japanese players who don't have to deal with the overseas access issue or language barrier, there are plenty of things like branching rules, expedition requirements, recipes and especially the game mechanics that are hard to figure out without a guide.
** It's even worse in time-limited event maps, especially after the introduction of ship locking caused the ships to be locked to the map they're sortied to. Furthermore, some of the event maps have boss debilitation mechanism that requires a substantial TrialAndErrorGameplay to figure out.

* BornUnlucky: Much like the previous entry, an admiral will ''also'' notice ships with lower-than-average Luck scores (lower than 10). More often than not, these are references to their unfortunate fates, either due to faulty design choices, circumstance, or ''both''. Many of the ships in the latter category either sunk during their initial sorties (Taihou, Bismarck), or never got to participate in battle at all (Mutsu, blown up while in port). And despite having average luck in the game, Shoukaku is sometimes lumped into this group as well, due to the fact that she took more than her fair share of damage in the fleets she was in.
** For some reason, Yamagumo has even lower luck than the other destroyers, being the first destroyer to have less than 12 luck on remodel.

** Map 6-5 features the Combined Fleet ''on the Abyssal's side'', which are far less well-organized compared to the player's. Their escort fleet are still a nuisance, however, as they could shield the main fleet from the torpedo phase, if not completely.
