>>17147325
They literally said it's in the Divers universe. Try somehow killed the OG universe. Don't know why.
>>
>>17147339
Try upped the power creep too much and turned literally everyone tryhard compared to the first season so the original build universe is a dead end for new material without a big revamp. That and a big gunpla digital scan and play game is more in line with what bamco is working towards making a reality.

FPBP

When you look at how they trick out old suits i cant wait to see what they do to Graze and Rodi.
I would be so happy to see a Megazord made up of Graze Variants.
Pirate Hex frames with their little clamps remind me of squid so to have a Hex Frame with Angel Tail Tentacles would be cool.
Speaking of Angels i would love to see a cool new Angel Variant as a Boss Fight like Giant Zaku in GBF SI and Devil Gundam of GBD SI

>>17150377

I like to imagine a fair GBN would have point systems for all the various super modes, meaning including one costs you something in your total alloted loadout. High end suits can only have a few gimmicks because they have too much of their budget locked in base performance stats, so if you wanted to mass up on super modes you're forced to field weaker base units.

Which means somewhere in GBN some lunatic is flying around with a custom built Zero System ALICE Biosensing Hyper Trans-EXAM Nitro-TD Moding Super Ball.

Yes, I want to see an ambush where the MC taunts some autistic melee-build team into trying to fight him and makes them overconfident because his MS is lightly armored so they chase him into an open killzone and get absolutely shredded.

I really want to move away from BD, it was awful compared to Fighters or TRY, at least Fighters and TRY had stakes (you lose, you're gunpla gets litterally torn apart). The fight with No-Name was one of the best battles in DB, same with the ep where the girls had that race. If that had more episodes like that, BD would have been significantly more enjoyable.

False, half of BD was about Sarah getting deleted and everyone knows Sarah is the best waifu from the Build shows.
>>
>>17152320

The deletion thing was only a major plot point in the last 2 or 3 episodes, were you paying attention or fantasying?
>>
>>17147207
The end teased everyone going to an IBO world. So I guess I wanna see that, and how the cast can handle a no beam weapons handicap. Also, more Ayame.
>>
>>17152320

More than half the series was about the break decals... Not that they really went anywhere
>>
>>17152403

>>
>>17152403
galbaldy rebake already flacks beam weapons, so probably not much will really be effected.

>>17151837
GBN looked ridiculously unbalanced from an actual game perspective. every high ranking suit shown in the show had a super mode attached with the exception of maybe love phantom? and everyone in the higher tiers had a unique special move, tigerwolf was able to spam his like nothing else and its power was shown to be on par with the other moves with even more powerful variants. getting an actual supermove also seemed to be by total chance. theres a lot of high ranking pilots, even in avalon that completely lack special moves. and avalon is the highest ranking guild. i think the only high ranking player without a special so far is rommel. and outside of the first episode he always appeared to be the weakest one.

actually acquiring a special move looked like something you would have to ancidentally do. it's gunpla specific and has no known way to get it without "build a gunpla super good and become super good at piloting and you might get one" seemingly based on random chance. and having already established that having a super move is the main factor in reaching the high ranks of the game and it being based on undeterminable factors means that its unbalanced and unfairly geared to the people who honestly unlocked the power by luck.

also just as a note, in that rommel v kyoya fight neither ignited a special mode or a super move, we already know that kyoya has the ability to do both far before that point so rommel might not even be competition based on weather or not he has a super move
>>
>>17152410
I doubt they'll get too specific about it. But I assume there's a damage reduction if beam weapons are used, compared to ballistic or blade type weapons.
>>
>>17152413

So it's luck based instead of pay to win?
>>
>>17152429
honestly that depends, you need to buy gunpla for parts to use (although they have custom made parts in the show easily obtainable), however you dont need to constantly repair and buy replacements for broken parts. and we dont know if you can buy a gunpla that can use a special move and if said move functions on your account. so there could be some pay to win aspects but its also very rng dependant. and i doubt anyone would sell a gunpla that has a special move due to the aforementioned difficulty in actually acquiring a suit that has a supermove unless they were retiring. and based on how quickly riku shot up the ranks after getting a super move it seems like they are fairly rare and anyone with them would likely be in the higher tier of players. we also know that the high ranking players get a lot of publicity in the user and viewer base, so even if a player was retiring with a suit that had a special move it would probably be moreso a collectors piece thats wildly expensive than a suit that a pay to win type person would actually use.

>>17147207
i didnt answer this question with my first post. but i'd like to see a commercial aspect to the world. we know that many people not only play, but also watch tournaments, yet theres no sign of any form of sponsorships for high level teams. i'd like to start seeing some gunpla with sponsorship logos on them like supercars have. make it seem a bit more like professional e-sports. i understand that season 1 is probably them using suits designed for casual play rather than professional level play. but i'd like to see a professional e-sports aspect to the game.

Regarding the issue of the randomness of super moves, we might be seeing a bit of cross-pollination of ideas from some Japanese MMOs. The game name eludes me at the moment, but I was reading just the other day about some platform that awards incredibly potent abilities to players seemingly at random, much to the ire of some of the more established playerbase. I'm not sure GBN is quite so haphazard, but they certainly didn't go into much detail as to how someone unlocks a super move. All we're told is that the move derives itself both from the specifc Gunpla and the player's personal style, so someone like Tigerwolf naturally developed a ki-like attack rather than some kind of super sniper weapon, and Riku's 00 Sky didn't get an EXAM or the like. If I had to guess the game probably keeps internal track of how often you do certain things, and how effective you did them, so at a certain threshhold that just becomes the super move for your unit.

We're not told whether all super moves are meant to be offensive finishers or whether they can be widespread support effects/defensive measures too. I could totally see Rommel's 'super move' just being some manner of battlefield awareness or stat boosting for his squad, since he tends to rely on tactics and coordinated maneuvers.

It's also impossible to know how much the digital gunpla inherits abilities from the actual parts of the kit. Gunpla Battle at least had this internal logic that the particles were animating that ACTUAL kit, so your workmanship and the parts you use will naturally work a certain way. I have a hard time conceiving of how the game could document all the individual pieces of a kit during a scan and then somehow determine specific functionality, unless unique part blocks (like Solar Furnaces) have some kind of Break Decal-like microchip that conveys to the system what it can do.

The problem is that he's near world level right off the bat, and without having ever fought a gunpla battle prior. Meijin is supposed to be the greatest player in the world, and yet he was able to go toe to toe with him by their second encounter. Not to mention beating a bunch of veterans in a Ball, and training against Fellini while still using a ball.

Regardless, this is all largely forgiveable as he does have his flaws and growth as a character. He's a great character too because of his dynamic with Sei.
>>
>>17153070
The problem with that point, is despite the competition only being the nationals, we see feats performed that very clearly outstrip anything seen in the world tournament. Everything has been dialed to 101 (including Tatsuya's chuuniness), making it hard to believe that we aren't watching world tournament level. Fights in TRY are less about technique, and more about spectacle.

Even the model manuals talk about how laid back their approach is and how the admins basically don't get involved unless its purely a problem with the system.

So you’re saying if a malicious hacker managed to break his way through the game’s code and started actually corrupting the game it would be up to the players to do something about him? What if he’s not using an avatar, but hacking from the outside to the code directly? That’s how you get people who get away with dumb shit like abusing bugs and scaring players away from their game

This is actually standard practice for JP MMOs, as they tend to distance themselves from the game itself and focus on the code side of things, encouraging self moderation. It honestly feels like a cynical look at this kind of mindset and why it's a bad thing, and I feel it's one of the few things the show does fantastically.

>self moderation
Unless they give players some shit like the fucking ban missiles I find it difficult to believe players could do anything more than scream at the hacker indefinitely until he goes away or something. What are the GMs gonna do? Keep fixing the bugs until he gets bored and goes away?

That's exactly what the plot of the first half of Divers is about. A guy is distributing decals with a special nanochip inside that exploits holes in the system and on initial scan of your gunpla the scan picks up the information on the chip and gives your gunpla all sorts of stats and abilities its not supposed to have. This was destabilizing the game to the point it was about to crash and corrupt the code permanently. The admins were doing next to nothing but monitoring the situation and only acted once one of their player buddies had a secret backdoor meeting with them and asked them if they could at least isolate the server they had tracked the hacker's avatar down to.

It's Japanese mentality. The culture has a feeling of "trust your superiors, they know better than you do" and assuming that you believe otherwise is an insult to authority. Generally, players are encouraged to report things like this and just let the GMs handle it, and go about playing the game like it doesn't concern you. Because it doesn't, you worthless peo-I mean valued player.

Why was he so perfect.

Exactly. Well, not exactly that but it's a good example. Keep up the "real" edge to it and show all facets of an MMO lifestyle. It's clear they're all familiar with it.

He also constantly seeks his challenges in an effort to improve. Riku's meeting with Tigerwolf and Shahryar are because he went out of his way to learn from them. Same with his meeting with Rommel. Deliberately challenged Rom's Rookies for his first force battle because he wanted to prove himself. Only his meeting with Kyoya was a real coincidence; but given how big of a fanboy he was, a meeting was probably inevitable.

Meanwhile both Reiji and Sei just met everyone due to coincidence or as a consequence of the tournament format. As fore Sekai, well he's Sekai.

Either he was going easy on Rommel in the first ep, or the ermine is a better pilot than he's portrayed. Because Kyoya in the last two episodes was a brutal beast.
>>
>>17156131
Actually fighting Rommel's guys was a coincidence. Monthly Force battles are randomized based on rank and Rommel had some of his lower ranked new guys temporarily form their own force to participate and get an easy win as a reward for their hard work training under him as well as getting some battle experiance. The build Divers just chose to accept the match even after knowing they were Rommel's men.
>>
>>17156139
I kind of want to go with a little of both, honestly. We don't see a whole lot of Rommel fighting so we don't have an accurate measure to how good he really is. But considering what the final few episodes showed us, Kyoya clearly wasn't going ENTIRELY all out on Rommel back then, and he doesn't really strike me as the type that would.
>>
>>17156156
Had to watch the episode again to confirm.
Rommel actually put out a challenge in the form of an event battle, for anyone who has yet to do a force battle to take on his team of rookies. Momoka even mentions there are plenty of other force battles to choose from.

Riku's problem was that he wasn't given enough quirks or flaws to be endearing, or time for his emotions to shine. He's a well-meaning kid, but too bland as is outside of his major duels where he says what's on his mind.

Given the central theme of friendship, I think Riku would have benefited if he were somewhat of a lonely but talented introvert, of whom Yukki is his only friend; making the friends he makes subsequently all that more important to him. Like the reason he doesn't want to join the soccer team at the start isn't because he has other priorities, but that he's too anxious around others to play well with a team. However within GBN he feels inspired by his hero Kyoya to improve himself; a feeling that is bolstered by Riku actually meeting Kyoya, and thus sparking the journey he experiences during the rest of the show.
Likewise Yukki had some good development later in the show, but deserved as much attention during the first half.

On the other hand they could have gone full Reiji with Riku, but to the point of being obnoxiously arrogant about his high standing and skill as a highschool athlete/student. Then have him taken down several pegs in GBN, which makes him reevaluate his personality. Make Yukki a childhood friend who only really tolerates him because Riku wasn't always a dickhead, and thinks he can change.

rommels lack of any super move in the show really limits what he can actually do. he doesnt use the drones his suit has in the backpack so i dont think when he fought kyoya he was using his full power either. though as i said earlier he is the only high ranking diver that doesnt have a supermove. so its likely his force is high ranked not because of his combat prowess, which is probably not amazing considering his apparent lack of a powerful super. but because of his tactical skill. which is what actually wins most of the force battles that are actually in the show. with the exception of the raid which was heavily due to tactics anyway.

and him not being the carrier for the force flag means that he probably knew that he couldnt beat kyoya in a 1 on 1 fight anyway. i think rommel is a fairly competent pilot. but due to the barrier that i can see for being a high tier powerhouse i wouldnt put him individually on the same level as a lot of the other characters, he's probably the best non super move capable character. which puts him below characters that we know are in the fairly high rankings like riku and ogre who are upcoming players. but above everyone who isnt a force leader. though i think takusa might be very close despite losing to a pre 00 sky riku. though its hard to say if he was out of practice due to GPD being dead, riku won by luck or he's not as good as the no names visuals seem to imply. i think he'd have an edge because no name has a super mode which the grimoire doesnt

What you're really saying is Koichi should have been the MC, because he hits almost all those thematic beats while also having a personal connection to the antagonist of the first arc. His introduction episode had the most emotional impact of anything in the entire season.

Nah. Koichi has a very different arc in that he learns to overcome the trauma of losing his friends in order to open up to others again, whereas Riku would be someone who was always an introvert for some reason.

Having him see Riku deliberately fighting against his own introverted tendencies to improve as a person and a fighter, would serve as an even better prompt for Koichi to get over himself. You could still have Riku annoy Koichi about joining his team, as well as the whole bit about putting together Koichi's old kits; but in this case Riku would be visibly struggling with doing such, while also having more empathy for K1 due to his own experiences. You could even have K1 joining partially because he wants to help Riku become less like himself.
