I’m not willing to give up, but I’m down 35 buckets and I only managed one boss kill on the very first map of the summer event. This isn’t a promising start.

I can only hope it’s gonna get better later on, because I sure don’t have enough buckets to roll on through to E6 if this keeps up (and I had over 400 buckets ready). Though it probably won’t get any better, and in very short course I’ll be running out of resources and buckets.

It’s one thing to have to use DDs or CVL, but having to beat flagship carriers and battleships on the first map is a bit more than I expected. My favorite part is when the preemptive bombing is utterly without effects, despite the Seirans and the actual carrier support.

This suffering brings back memories of 5-3…
