Friend Fleets are an event mechanic that was implemented during the Winter 2018 Event. They are NPC fleets that appear to attack the boss during Night Battle before your fleet engages. Because the exact Friend Fleet details vary from event to event, please refer to the current event page for more information.

NPC Friend Fleet mechanic, as seen in map E-7 of the Winter 2018 Event, when the International Fleet makes their entrance into battle.

In the Winter 2018 Event

  • They are only available on specific maps.
  • Only NPC fleets are available.
    • The devs have mentioned that player fleets may be available at a future date.
  • They will engage the entire enemy fleet.
    • This means they will fight both fleets of an enemy combined fleet.
  • The determination of which fleet of an enemy combined fleet your escort fleet will engage in night battle is calculated after the Friend Fleet attack.
  • Which Friend Fleet appears is random, but odds can be manipulated.
    • By having a member of the Friend Fleet in the sortied fleet, all Friend Fleets that she is a member of will not appear.
      • This method may not work for all events.
  • Friend Fleets may not be available at the start of the event.
    • They are typically implemented as the event progresses to give stragglers a leg up.
  • Ship girls in Friend Fleets are not fully modernised and may appear already damaged.
