Experience and Rank

From Kancolle Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

Experience in Kantai Collection is divided into two types. Ship Girl experience and Admiral experience. The former makes your ship girls more powerful and the latter increases your HQ level and plays into Ranking.

Ship Girl Experience

Ship girls earn experience through sorties, expeditions and exercises.

  • The most time and resource efficient way to earn experience is through exercises.
    • But it is only limited to 10 times a day.
    • This is the best method to level weak or expensive ship girls.
    • A downside is that your experience gain is heavily dependent on other admirals putting up good fleets.
  • A vast majority of ship girl experience is earned through sorties.
  • Expeditions are for minor passive exp gain.

Sorties

Experience earned by ship girls in sorties is:

[math]\text{Exp}_\text{sortie} = \lfloor \text{Exp}_\text{base} \times \text{Mod}_\text{MVP} \times \text{Mod}_\text{flag} \times \text{Mod}_\text{rank} \rfloor[/math]

  • [math]\text{Exp}_\text{base}[/math] is the base experience of the node.
    • This is dependent upon the map and the composition faced. Please see the individual map pages for exact base exp values.
  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{MVP}[/math] is the MVP bonus. It is [math]2[/math] for the MVP and [math]1[/math] for all other ships.
  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{flag}[/math] is the flagship bonus. It is [math]1.5[/math] for the flagship and [math]1[/math] for all other ships.
  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{rank}[/math] is the rank bonus according to the table below.
Sortie Rank Bonus
Rank Multiplier
S 1.2
A 1.0
B 1.0
C 0.8
D 0.7
E 0.5

Important Notes

  • The maximum multiplier a ship girl can earn is 3.6. This would be for a flagship MVP at S-rank.
  • It isn't worth it to night battle to increase your rank in sorties. It is more time efficient to take what you get.
  • Most maps heavily reward full clears.

Exercises

Experience earned in exercises is:

[math]\text{Exp}_\text{exercise} = \lfloor \text{Exp}_\text{post-cap} \times \text{Mod}_\text{MVP} \times \text{Mod}_\text{flag} \times \text{Mod}_\text{CT} \rfloor[/math]

Experience earned through exercises has a cap where experience over 500 is square rooted.

[math]\text{Exp}_\text{post-cap} = \big\lfloor \lfloor 500 + \sqrt{\text{Exp}_\text{pre-cap}-500} \rfloor \times \text{Mod}_\text{CT} \big\rfloor[/math]

[math]\text{Exp}_\text{pre-cap} = \lfloor \frac{\text{Exp}_\text{Ship1}}{100} + \frac{\text{Exp}_\text{Ship2}}{300} \rfloor + \text{Rand}[/math]

  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{MVP}[/math] is the MVP bonus. It is [math]2[/math] for the MVP and [math]1[/math] for all other ships.
  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{flag}[/math] is the flagship bonus. It is [math]1.5[/math] for the flagship and [math]1[/math] for all other ships.
  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{rank}[/math] is the rank bonus according to the table below.
  • [math]\text{Mod}_\text{CT}[/math] is the training cruiser bonus according to the table below.
  • [math]\text{Exp}_\text{Ship1}[/math] is the minimum experience value of the opponent's flagship based on exp tables below.
  • [math]\text{Exp}_\text{Ship2}[/math]is the minimum experience value of the opponent's 2nd ship based on exp tables below.
  • [math]\text{Rand}[/math] is a random number from 0 to 3.

Katori + Kashima Non-flagship 4% 6% 8% 12% 17.5% Bonus determined by the highest leveled training cruiser

Important Notes

  • Like sorties, the maximum multiplier a ship girl can earn is 3.6. This would be for a flagship MVP at S-rank.
    • With two married CT in the fleet, it is 4.23.
    • It is not recommended to have a CT flagship as a more valuable ship can use that experience.
  • It is recommended that you night battle in order to attempt to get a higher rank for better exp.
    • You only get limited chances to participate in exercises per day so it is important to maximise your exp.
  • Because of the way exp is calculated, even losses can yield a lot of experience.
  • See Exercises for calculated experience values.

Expeditions

Please see Expeditions for the experience earned from each expedition. Note that the experience listed is multiplied by 4 on a great success.

HQ Experience

Like ship girls, Admirals earn HQ experience through sorties, expeditions and exercises.

  • The best way to earn HQ experience is through sorties.
  • Exercises and expeditions give minimial HQ experience. They are only for supplementary gain.
  • The most important use of HQ experience is for Ranking.
  • HQ experience is capped at 300,000,000.

Sorties

HQ experience from sorties is only affected by rank.

Sortie Experience Modifiers
Rank Non-boss Multiplier Boss Multiplier
S 1.0x Non-Boss Exp 1.0x Boss Exp
A 0.8 Boss Exp - (0.5 x Non-Boss Exp)
B 0.5x Boss Exp - (0.8 x Non-Boss Exp)
C 0 Non-boss exp
D 0 0
E 0 0

The value of non-boss and boss node experience is given by the table below.

Important Notes

  • You only gain HQ exp for every combat node. Please see Nodes for more details.
  • It is not worth the time to night battle in an attempt to increase your rank for more exp.

Exercises

HQ exp earned in exercises depends on the level difference between you and your opponent.

Level Difference S A B Defeat

(C/D/E)

≥5 160 120 96 80
3~4 120 80 64 60
1~2 80 60 48 40
0 60 40 32 30
-1~-2 40 30 24 20
-3~-4 30 20 16 15
≤-5 20 15 12 10

Important Notes

  • The closer you get to the HQ level cap, the less HQ experience you'll earn from exercises.

Expeditions

Please see Expeditions for the experience earned from each expedition. Note that the experience listed is multiplied by 2 on a great success.

Admiral Rank

These are the ranks displayed on your Military Record screen and beside your name in the server rankings.

  • Ranks depend on your current position in the Rankings.
  • Ranks currently serve no purpose beyond cosmetic.
  • Ranks are calculated off the total number of valid admirals on the server.
    • Admirals who have registered but not started the game aren't counted.

HQ Exp Table

Disclaimer: EXP list from Lv100 through Lv120 is guessed based on patterns observed from known data across several levels. Value may be off by 100000-200000 points per level.

Effects of HQ Level

Effective LoS

The Line of Sight formula is affected by HQ level. A higher HQ level will result in higher LoS requirements for routing.

Resource Soft Cap

A higher HQ level will result in a higher soft cap on primary resources (FuelAmmunitionSteelBauxite). Please see Resources for more information.

Development Rarity

The higher your HQ level, the higher your chance of obtaining rare equipment from Development.

Difficulty Tiers

The difficulty of events used to automatically be adjusted to HQ level. As of the Winter 2015 event, players have been able to select the difficulty level they wish to challenge. HQ level affects the difficulty levels available to be selected.

HQ level also affects the enemy compositions you can encounter in extra operations. Please see the individual extra operation pages for the difficulty tier breakdown.

Tier Level Range Rare Drop Availability Notes
I Casual 1~34 None
Easy Limited
II Medium 35~79 Some rare drops.
III Hard 80~120 A lot of rare drops.

Server Ranking

HQ experience earned throughout the year and the month determine your rank in the server. This differs from the Admiral Ranks detailed above. This is a numerical ranking that awards rare equipment when you achieve certain thresholds. Please see Ranking for more details and the help page for advice on how to rank.
