I didn't realize until now, but you can emergency eject in midair.
This was the saddest Ace match I've ever played.
Should I just hold off with the western release?
>>17606520Anyone know what cost the hildolfr is?
>>17607559Level 1 is 400
>>17606520>Zaku Kai buffsWhy? Since when do these niggers care about suits below 400 cost? They planning another 0080 release, Chobham Alex or FA Alex up next?
>>17606533>Zaku Kai (Fritz Helm)
These god damn ramming tanks are getting a bit much.
>be yellow>400 cost guncanon in the port>get stunned by two fuckling Pixies>they're a fast little fuckers>out of nowhere>kills me two more times >keep having to look over my shouldersI fucking hate the Pixie, one is bad but fucking two at the same time?
>>17606533>>17608125>>17608129The buffs are effectively nothing, some health, a couple of useless skills
What is the point of of a +2 to speed? Why even pretend they did anything useful?
>>17608214this is why I like frontlining as a yellow, because if your GP's are competent, you getting shafted by reds is usually followed by their gangrape
>>17608281I don't get it either. Could just be a joke in the face of Zaku II Kai players
>>17607138We don't even know when it's coming out. So you might as well start playing now so you get used to the controls or figure out a setup of your own.
>>17608380Gunpla Network claims it's coming August 21.
>>17608291>relying on the competency of random elevens
I don't want to spend tokens on the hidolfir, but fuck me do I want that snazzy uniformif only it didn't cost 60 tokens at LEAST to get both items
>>17608652fuck I'm too tempted, I'm at 86 tokens right now.
>>17608682Anniversary, be patient this is a trap
How's the F2P aspect of the game? Do they jew you hard?
>>17608832I don’t think it’s too bad
>>17608832It might seem limiting early on since you don't have access to much in the shop, but all suits eventually become available for free. You just need to meet the rank requirement and have enough DP, the basic currency. There's plenty of meta suits available for free, and the GM Trainer you can get from the training missions is the meta at 200 cost
>>17608830too lateI got a Pezun Dwadge and Dom cannon out of itand I look swag
>>17608855>and the GM Trainer you can get from the training missions is the meta at 200 costthough it's definitely still a powerful suit, I actually haven't seen much of it lately strangely enough
>>17608930Some people might be tired of using it. Might also be the fact that supports are largely unopposed at 200, and even 250 (barring the Zudah, but the Zudah can't counter an entire team solo)
Who is neet-50-year-old?I want to pay they're Mother a visit...
>200-250>GM Camouf snipers>Blue zookas>300>Efeets>Shotguns>350>3 Act Zakus on each team>400+>Beam riflesThis game so unfun
>>17608998it is if you get good with a non meta suit
>>17608998get good fagget.
>>17608998What’s wrong with beam rifles?
>>17609009>>17609013I'm A rated. Im good at the game but the fun in this game is short lived. There is nothing fun about being a NON meta red and getting annihilated trying to pass the Blue tidal wave of Bazookas, there is nothing fun about being a Non meta blue doing piss poor range damage with Machine guns,submachine guns, and beam spray guns as they do little damage and get constantly blocked by shields when a bazooka and melee combo has significantly more uses.
>>17609028Because its just pop out and shoot someone's legs off. Its not skill based. Its not fun to go againts. It makes you have to hide behind walls and jitter.back and forth. Jitter jitter pow! Leg damage' he cant have fun anymore.
>>17608832The dp shop has plenty of high tier ms at this point, like the HIMO Zaku II R2; so it's just grindan for dp and rank.
>>17609038>I'm A rated.from what I've seen, that means absolutely nothing>NON meta red and getting annihilated trying to pass the Blue tidal wave of Bazookassounds like operator error to me, as you're generally not supposed to do that>Non meta blue doing piss poor range damage with Machine guns,submachine guns, and beam spray gunsliterally all you have to do is stay a decent distance away while you blast them>>17609047no idea what you're whining about here, every MS needs to use cover no matter what weapon they useI think you might just be bad
>>17609134Wow such skill
>>17609150don't be jealous oldtype ;^)
>>17609134>from what I've seen, that means absolutely nothingSince I've become A rank, I've played several custom matches with sub-B ranks, and they are consistently numerous degrees of incompetent.You just think A's ranks are full of nimrods because the level of retardation adjusted proportionally as you ranked up, but trust me, D's and C's are much worse in skill save for a handful.
>>17609178It's the complete opposite of what you just said.
>didnt get the hildolfr but finally got an Act Zaku Beam Rifle instead.HAHA TIME TO BE CANCER
>>17609277LETS GO BOYSS
>>17609047It takes some degree of precision on the part of the user, beam rifles are the epitome of skill weapons because you need actual accuracy and forethought to use them effectively.
>>17608930Blame GM Camouf
>>17608214It's worse if its paired with the Nacht.
Time for KANSAI DURIFTO
>>17609608You don't need shit but good latency, that's all.
>>17609821Looks like we have a "I literally never miss any shot ever" guy over here
>>17609821Then what in this game does require skill? And if nothing does, what the hell even is your point?
>>17609893Only a try hard faggot could possibly infer that from what I said.
>>17609821How does latency help, where you're shooting isn't where the target is. How does attributing anything latency take away from the fact it takes more skill to use a beam rifle than a bazooka, machine gun, or cannon?
>>17609906Because all you faggots whining about the bluezooka meta are really going to be in for some shit as the meta moves to beam rifles which lack an ASL or splash. Hence putting all the whiny fuck westerners at even more of a disadvantage to some zip living next to a server.
>>17609915>How does Latency help"Oh shit that guy with a beam rifle popped out"*ducks behind cover**beam whizzes by*>mfw
>>17609925Somebody say knees?
God bless the GM Camouf for making the Acguy even more of a useless mech
>>17609921and this only affects beam rifles, its happened with bazookas and cannons, MGs too
>>17609917The fuck am I whining about? You're the one flipping your lid over beam weapons, I prefer beam weapons over zooks to begin with
>>17609946Beams travle at the speed of light. The cannons and rockets are slow as fuck. Its insanely easier to snipe someone with a almost hitscan like weapon than a slow as fuck live fire projectile
>>17609960Work on your reading comprehension then get back to me.
Good lord did I have one of the best teams ever. Everyone played smart, aggressively, but also when the chips were down they act like the Trojan Wall for me. God Bless these guys.
>>17609234nahC's and D's are easy pickings
>>17609990Still going strong with that Goog cannon.
>>17609934GMSC Pilots unite!
>>17609966Beams have a travel speed, bazookas and cannons have splash, there are no hitscan weapons.
>>17609996Yarp, I got a load of enhanced melee, and firing programs on it now. Along with the Lv3 beam Naginata, and Lv2 Bazooka.
>>17610008He didn't say it was hitscan
>>17610014True, though he's not making much of a point beam rifles don't require skill because latency when this applies to all weapons? With no or little latency, precision aiming requires more skill than hitting with a bazooka, cannon, or machine gun. If the next post is still bringing up latency then we'll know he's just talking out his ass and shitposting.
>>17609990Blessed Gelgoog Cannon, and congrats on hitting A-
Grandpa pilots are confirmed the worst
Hidolfr GameplayExtra - Glitchy Gyanhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDbbU17JlBo
Can someone gimme a quick run down of how enhancements work.
>>17610206The big enhancement is basically the complex expansion slot which gives you +1 to each slot. Other bonuses are shit like +1 to Ranged, Melee, Defensive Mods, or Thrusters. Level 4 suits get +2 to all those and more importantly 2 slots, which is pretty substantial. Enhancing takes 70 hours, and gives +100 to enhancement with different suits get different bonuses at different enhancement values, like the Zaku Cannon level 4 getting Complex Expansion Slot 2 at 100, while other suits get it at numbers like 1380. Each enhancement has a 10% chance to be a great success and give +200 instead, with a small bonus for suits with over 50 matches played.
>>17610206>>17610261since you normally only get 100 points from an enhancing session, it's really only practical to enhance suits in the sub 300 cost range, since they'll usually get an enhancement after 1 to 2 trips through the hanger, while for suits at higher cost ranges it might take 400 or more points(often like 600 or higher) to get to the first enhancementat the moment the best suits to take through the upgrade process are the level 1 Dom and Rick Dom as both have their first tier of upgrade only needing 100 points
>>17609769>the Nacht.oh fuck
>>17610031Are you literally retarded? Is this your first multiplayer game on the Internet? Go play a fps or even an mmo if that's your speed with a ping of sub 20 now try it again at 100. Tell me if you see a difference. Now try it again at 200-300 which is likey what westerners are playing at. You ever watched those rockets fly 10 feet to the side of you and still land. That's latency you moron. Do you think you're Wyatt fucking Earp because you can hold R2 before letting your shot go? It's not anymore difficult than a cannon shot except instead of accounting for retarded ballistics and flight time plus latency (where the target actually is, not appears to you) you just aim adjust for latency.
>>17610031>machine gun.>skill????not him but you do know the machine gun, has auto-aim?
>>17610803>You ever watched those rockets fly 10 feet to the side of you and still land.Hi, living in japan and that still happens. The game's netcode is p2p and not good.
>>17610396Anyone 1star rarity MS gets their Complex Expansion Slot on the first Enhancement, anything at level 4 or higher gets Complex Expansion Slot lv2 so the best turn arounds are level 4 1star units. The best units to enhance are the ones that need an extra slot somewhere, will it take time sure, but if you can put an extra Close and Mid slot for lv4 Melee Program then it's worth it.
>>17610803Yes, they are literally retarded. I don't even know how you had doubts. Only monkeys play this game and complain about it.
>can't change camera sensitivity
>>17611201Yes you can, get the part that increases reticle response. It's a mechanic you fucking animal.
>>17611201That is a feature. The game pretty much makes you pay/grind to be unhandicapped.>>17611237That part takes up so much useful space. That's what sucks.
>fucking artillery spam
>>17611237>It's a mechanic you fucking animalYeah fuck you buddy why don't you go play MGS5 with camera sensitivity on 1 tell me how that goes
>>17611264>play MGS51 minute of gameplay 19 hours of cutscenes, no thanks retard.
>>17611264If you are playing GBO2 and expecting a MGS5 experience, you should be sterilized.
join the titans [MFG]
>>17611268not him, but MGSV is not MGS4 dumb fuck
Imagine Kojima producing a Gundam game. Jesus.
>>17611279There's no reason to turn this slowly on foot.
the only use for GMs are for bluebazooka, the beam gun is shit and the MG is a joke
>>17611338clearly you've never used a LV4 bullpup
>>17611346>bullpupi take that back the MG is good
>>17611287Yeah, it's worse than 4
the ground GM can't use the beam rife.
>>17611371Which is a damn shame, would love if it could. But such is life, the Gelgoog Cannon can't use the Gelgoog Beam Rifle either
>>17611396>>17611371it does stupid damage with the LV4 MG, could only imagine what it'd be like with the BRI'd love it
>>17611338>Shreds ur red in 2 seconds
>>17611503>Needing to roll in sub-400 matches
>>17611510>enjoy having your legs getting bluebazooka.
>>17611519I seriously don't understand this line of thinkingdo you just shoot people from right in front of them? with an MG/BR you can comfortably sit outside of their effective range and boost away if you need to.
>>17611537>>17611537it's not so hard to stun and boost up to you before the cooldown goes off, I think I just keep running into bad players who can't use that suit because I find it so easy to kill it with a GM command.
>>17611473And has paper thin armor
>>17611558people don't use the maneuver armor. You can bait shots really easy. Then counter attack. When you fight 2 guys at the same time though, then things get bad.The thing that hurts it the most is its low health. that paired up with a decent yellow on the enemy team. Nigga wont have legs after 2 shots.
Imagine actually using the term bluezooka.
any new info on the american release?
>Good 3000 lead over our enemies in Ace Match>Ace is picked>It's me>Teammates won't let me get any kills>Teammates devolve into random 1v1-2 fighting by themselves. What the fuck is going on at A+ rating?
>400 ace match>entire team besides me are supports
>>17611874>>17611887400 rooms are cancer and Ace Matches only make it worse.
>>17611911very true>400 Ace match in sand soup as Gunner>get cornered by the EZ8 Ace, Gyan Eos, and BD2>get knocked over>think I just lost us the match>BD2 kills me right in front of the Ace>we win by a huge marginI'm sure that EZ8 was raging hard, why are Raid pilots like this?
>>17611872They're going to region lock like versus so gbo2 will die on us/NA side
>>17611911400 is the best cost, since I get to flex on people in my lvl3 GM Sniper Custom.
>>17611943Melee players are basically bots, they always go through the same exact set up and have no ability to think long term
Why do so many shieldless suits have so fucking many midrange slots it's godamn ridiculous
>>17611953To equip lv 3 anti-melee parts. I honestly don't know what to do with those mid slots since I don't own anything above lv 1 shield buff.
>reloads are extremely longNo problem with this>mobile suit only reloads at the end of cooldownLAZY
I just got the Guncannon 2, is it any good? It’s very sexy
>>17612000stay at range, anon. both canons need a short time to charge up oh and DON'T MISS YOU SHOTS the cooldown is the worst with that suit but it can do a lot of damage if you time your shots right.
>>17611945>They're going to region lock like versus so gbo2 will die on us/NA sidehighly doubt it, if they haven't locked the JP version by now, almost a full year since it initially launched than I doubt they're ever going to lock it
>>17611874when did they add A+ rating?
>>17612000You'd be better off just sticking with other available supports. The original guncannon, Madrock, full armor gundam are better. It's not like I would hate you though If you'd play it in a custom game though. I'm sure it can be fun.
>>17612018>>17612020>>17612133Why can’t my favorite suits ever be good
>>17612149I know your feel bro, I love gm sniper II wd but it sucks as a 400 cost general
>>17612149I mean you totally should use it man but you are going to have to work harder to be as good as the other suits.
Space fortress is such a bad map
>>17612480Why does it always come up on rated, the asteroid field and dead space are so much better
>tfw actually landing the drifting AP shot > transform> shovel > HE shot combo with the Hildolfrhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFODclG8mBY
>>17612510>tfw landing g unit 4's super megabeam
Clan Missions are to be added soon.https://bo2.ggame.jp/jp/info/?p=15849
Hildolfr is ok I guess I'd rather have a Dom Cannon
>>17612708It's pretty nutty once you get the hang of it. Best playstyle I've seen thusfar is to do hit and runs while trying to land the AP shell in speed mode, then get to safety to recharge. If you need to, you can treat it like a Xamel and just crouch on a safe spot to shell down. Shovels are also a hard stagger
>>17612149What >>17612394 said, you'll do better on a suit you love if you out in the effort. The only possible exception is the standard Gouf
>>17612814Haha imagine if that was your favorite suit wouldn’t that be funny
There's going to be a gundam event on 7/18-7/21.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmwZWZVVtY0
>>17612822I mean the VD is pretty good and then the custom is at least playable in my opinion.
>>17612714Is it worth spending tokens to roll for?It doesn't seem all that impressive in the field, and I do well enough in my Guncannon/GSC/Mudrock.
>>17611953lvl3 reload takes up a lot of midslots, so does the new frame part that gives 800hp.There's a good amount of parts that take up midslots now that aren't shield parts.
>>17612889Between GBO2 being borderline mediocre, New Breaker being hot rancid shit, GBD being under-budgeted and bland, and Gundam NT being atrociously written wankery, the only Gundam related shit I give a shit about nowadays is new model kits.Also Reconguista.
>>17612822Well if it's the straight standard Gouf, if you put in a ton of work it's usable at 250 but that's about it unfortunately, I'd say it's easily the worst suit in the game. But luckily the VD Gouf is great and i'm a big fan of the Gouf Custom when played right, the level 4 in particular is great.
Any customs planned for this weekend again?
>>17613014It functions like a lower cost (but arguably more effective) Xamel. It's difficult to use properly, so you'll see a lot of people do nothing while using it. If you like the idea of high damage artillery (it really shits out damage) while kansai drifting on fools, sure. Being able to move while firing a cannon is pretty great, though you have to abuse drifting to make up for your lack of strafing while transformed. The ability to retreat full speed while firing is also nice, just watch your boost gauge
Why does the Zaku II Heavy Arms show the magella top gun, but it's not listed anywhere that it can use? Do I just buy the Zaku I Sniper's cannon?
>>17613463I think it's a different one. One of them is labeled prototype.
>>17613466Dumb, and very upsetting.
>>17613463Uses the Prototype Magella Cannon that comes with the Zaku I Commander.
>>17612620From what I can gather, every week you get 3 missions that can be completed. And then the more you complete it, it can "rank up" up to S rank for a single token. So it seems you can get 9k DP and 3 tokens a week with an active clan.
>>17613162So it's better than the Assault Guntank I take it?
pls give the Zaku a shield
>>17613816Wish this game had a bit more customization when it came to loadouts.
>>17613824It’s weird how some suits have like 5 different guns available while others get 1
I really wish they would add aquatic maps, I wanna use my hy-gogg in water like god intended
>>17613824or let you pick up weapons
>>17613824Yeah I was disappointed when the midnight fenrir Zaku I couldn't equip the shotgun
are the microtransactions in this game terrible?
>>17614103Not really, you can only buy token to spin the lottery for shit. It's about 3 usd per spin which is a gigantic ripoff but there's no outfit buying trash.
>unlimited cost match >entire team is fucking around on hover bikes and not contributing at all>drops my rating Why can’t they fuck around in quick match or something
>enemy team has 3 yellows>my team we have only 1 yellow what's worst is that retard wouldn't start the game
just tried the Dom cannonmassive piece of shit compared to the Guncannon
>>17615585can't beat the chadcannon
>>17615547Seems like it would play closer to the Gelgoog Cannon than the Guncannon
>>17615591>>17615587>>17615585>>17615547Seemed more like a Zaku Cannon to me, just faster
>>17615621Can it do rocket launcher/shoulder cannon into wrist rocket combo like the goog c?
Custom room tomorrow, 7pm - 8pm EST?
>>17615699I'm in. I liked the changing costs we did last time, keeps things fresh
>>17615699Sure sounds good
Should I:A. Save up for the next step-uporB. Drop my tokens on doriftu tankvote now with your phones
>>17615846Saving tokens is for chumps, live in the moment and use all your tokens
>>17615846spend them all for the sweet cosmetics like me
friendly teams get more idiotic the later I play, why are japs so bad at this game?I'm eager to see the difference once the western release comes out
>>17615900>Getting all my suits again, especially shit like the Xamel and Juaggu which require a ranking that takes months to get. On top of any rate lotto only shitHard pass, though I'll probably make an American acc to fuck around on
>>17615948would be a small price to pay to play with people who aren't half as retarded as the ones I played with the past 4 matches
>>17615846Save for step-up.You can either spin all or nothing or per day.
>>17615958It's going to be the same retards, it's the nature of team based games
its such a mixed feeling when you think you got a rare drop from the gatcha but then when you join a lobby you see that everyone else did too.

Wait, what are the entry requirements for playing? The game said I didn't meet them.
>>17617922I have it set to C- to A, guess I'll lower it to D-
I can’t believe we lost to randoms, how embarrassing

>>17618032feel my pain
Fuck I need more 400 and up suits, I only have one 500
That's the end of today's customs, maybe I should manually cycle maps instead of true "random". Hopefully it was enjoyable for the participants, there will be another customs room Wednesday 11pm to 12am EST.
I have all the dom types, I don't like the dom the legs always gets taken out.
>>17618045soo what are you eating?
>>17618050Chili dogs and cheese fries, and a lot of bazooka after that last match.
to that guy who used a z'gok you have balla.
>>17618045I had fun! Looking forward to the next one.I only just started playing, so I'm still trying to figure out which suit fits me.
Those randoms were pretty good this time
I enjoyed myself and I'll play customs again
250 is the most cancerous cost in the entire game. Between the Camouf, Zudah, and the armored GM it's impossible to even do anything. And unlike with cancerous high cost suits, the low cost cancer suits are common as fuck.
>>17618395wtf I love my Zaku II Kai
>>17618395Fuck the camouf, there is no reason it needs a 350 range MG on top of being able to use the ASR and fake beacon.
I really wish you could turn off the counter animation.
>tfw you start getting into your enemy's head and they start shooting your corpse and focusing on you all match
>somehow completely missed this game >just whipped up a jap PSN to give it a download and see how it is before it comes to NASo what am I in for?
>>17618395Get good. 250 isnt even that cancerous, you just need to know how to deal with it.
If someone on your Friend's List is playing the game on JP, does the game title show up in English?
>>17618731I dunno so far it seems kinda funBut maybe that’s just because everything is new, I like the weight everything has even though it seems like with some actions you can cancel to be speedy
>>17618812>random 2009 era 'lmao git gud' comment and nothing else
>>17618848>>17618731I honestly wish this game didn't have a letter based ranking system.I'd honestly be less frustrated if I didn't have to worry about a genuinely worthless letter grade.
>>17618812Kind of difficult if the team is composed of 5 GM Camouf using ASR and Bazooka with 1 Support.
>>17618971The problem with 250 isn't Camoufs, it's the devastating long-range weaponry available to certain suits that standard bazookas and MGs have no answer to.Lopsided low-cost matches aren't a new thing. Have you ever fought 5 supports with one bluezooka to keep LAs and Goufs at bay in the city or port base? It's impossible to win. Those Gigans and Zaku Cannons munch anything that closes in and you have nowhere to hide, and now you can sit back in an MP Guntank and fire away with enough reach to cover almost the entire map. All that while being dead easy to pliot and coordinate. Now imagine 3 WRs in an open map - they kill any suit in a single concentrated volley. Camoufs just compunded this imbalance at 200 and 250, giving a heavy stagger weapon to a suit with balance. I mean, they had enough brain fluid to realize that was a bad idea with the 250 Zudah, but a year later it's a-ok with a blue?Balance in this game is a joke and you have to struggle to have fun despite it.
Would you guys like to have a GBO general discord? Or at least a /m/echafaghot group discord? It'd be easier to communicate and offer a more solid way to communicate in customs.
>>17618997Been in those match situations. I only join in custom rooms with specific rules.
>>17618997Full support teams are a joke. A GM LA will just sit at range and melt each support in 5 seconds with his ranged score of 5. It's cheesy as fuck. That stripped BR is far more cancerous then the ASR. I love being on the opposite of all support teams.
>>17606520Anyone know what 400 and up suits preform like the zaku sniper? I love that thing in 300 cost but I heard the gm sniper 2 is shit
>>17619277Gunner Gundam and Guncannon II. The former is actually OP on most maps.
>>17619277Gunner Gundam or GSC level 3.
>>17619023>discordWhat are you talking about, a majority of the people from discord already hijacked this thread almost a year ago spouting false information, I mean shit the leader of the /m/ clan posts on reddit and complains about meta and how JP's suck despite the majority of US players in customs being much much worse.Looking forward to the western release of this game so I can laugh at how bad everyone is because they're all a bunch of yes men who don't question each other or try figure out what is optimal or how specifically to play/approach each map, maybe you guys should learn japanese already.
>>17619476I'm not learning the language of a country we nuked twice lmao
>>17619023Nah. Just post here.>>17619476Nah. Japs suck.
>>17619476Discord is shut but you're worse Tummywub
Brand new, how much should I worry about ranking? Also what’s something I should aim to snag so I don’t get bodied as much
>>17619954>how much should I worry about rankingnot at all, ranking means very little as the majority of players suck in every rank.>something I should aim to snag so I don’t get bodied as muchI would recommend rolling every day so you can get a decent flow of new weapons and suits, but as you increase in rank, you're definitely going to want to buy some MS with DP to fill in whatever niche you don't have for the cost.here's some I can recommend >all costs of LA GM>all costs of Zaku Cannon>all costs of Zudah with the ASR if you can't play melee raids too well>all costs of Guncannon>all costs of Prototype Gundam>all costs of RX-78-2>maybe LV1 and LV2 of EZ8 if you like bluezookaing>maybe LV1 and LV2 of Zaku II Kai>I forgot if GM Kai is on DP or not, but LV1 and LV2 of that>LV1 Dom>Dom Tropen (I personally think it's better than Powered GM) just off the top of my head, I'm sure there's some I'm missing, but this list covers a pretty broad range of strategies and costs. I would however, also recommend investing in parts (namely, the damage boosting ones) and weapons at the same time to keep up with the levels of your suits
>>17619954If you're talking about the letter grade, don't worry about it too much. It just determines how often you'll fight/get allied with shitters.If you're talking about military rank, well that determines what you can buy from the dp store.In any case I don't know what's in the dp store anymore since I purchased/rolled damn near everything, but apparently the HiMo Zaku R2 is available now for purchase; so definitely hop on that if you can along with its simplified missile launcher.Makes space battles ez peasy.
>>17619023I thought discord was solely used by babyfurs
>when your team wins with only Zeon suits.
>>17619978>>17619983Oh that’s nice, I was worried about needing to upkeep my rank cause after barely getting towards C- I got nuked right back down to D-Thanks for the suit recommendations as well, daily missions should let me roll once a day I figure. Figured I’d try this before it came to the west and having some fun, not to worried about progress
>>17619990By the way MFG has some openings since I kicked some dudes who hadn't played in a month, so feel free to join for some extra tokens/dp.
I really don't understand what the fuck they meant with some suit typings. Minelayer as a blue? GM Guard as a red? Really? Pls Gam, I just want seem fun yellows. I couldn't get the Mudrock in time...
>>17620010Already sent a request out! So clans give you small boosts to stuff then?
>>17619954You get over three times the DP and EXP from battles at A-/A compared to D-. That's a lot.
>>17620019Juaggu is in dp, only yellow you need>>1762002210k DP and 1 token every time the clan levels up
>>17619954Zaku sniper and gm sniper are both great supports at 300 and 200 respectively. Avoid gouf at all costs it’s shit, every single efreet is top tier
>>17620099Adding to this the gouf customs are decent, it is really just the default gouf that sucks
Dear SgtEliasGrodin, you're quite possibly the worst player I've ever seen. I hope you get hit by an IED irl.
>>17620257What did they do?
>>17620099Also Zaku Sniper I is best paired with the Magella cannon.Even it doesn't have as much range or dmg, it's well worth it for the heavy stun.
>>17620320Really? I personally love it’s normal laser, it lets you outrange everything
>>17620288Tired of being stuck with just absolute garbage day in and day out. I don't remember the really good players but I remember the awful fucks, the true shitters. The ones you'd rather be a man down than play with. See them all the time legion96ps, ufomoon, that asshole I already referenced, etc.
>>17620010Do you get the tokens that the clan has already gained or only ones from when it leveled up after you were a member?
>>17620451the latter. They don't go away though, so if you joined a clan, and it leveled up four times before you got the tokens and dp, you'd still get all of them
>>17620325The problem is DPS and shorter range combatThe beam rifle has a long time between shots if you don't want to overheat, and the reload time is tremendous if you do overheat, while the cannon gets 6 shots, I believe, before needing to reload. The hard stagger also means you can stop a charging raid type in their tracks
>>17620472Guess it depends on how you want to play it and the map
>>17620495Picking beam rifle essentially means you've dedicated yourself to countersniping, the problem there is that you're not going to get a kill with your own damage output for a while, and something like a Tank unit can just hunker down and ignore the stagger while having the bulk to ignore the damage for a while. Plus, it's impossible to really stop a raid who's reached you using the beam rifle. Only 2 shots, and neither will go through MA.The huge range is nice, but only port, city, and dark space really give you the sightlines that let that range matter, but even then Port and City are limited in where you can shoot by the environment (moreso port).It's not that the beam rifle is some worthless, terrible weapon, it's just that the only selling point it has in terms of effectiveness over the magella is the doubled range. You can pick the rifle and do well (just not the burst MG), but the cannon will have a more decisive impact on the match. The best map for it is probably dark space, since you can hang way back. Works best with dark paint to blend in
>>17620533>someone other than me advocating countersnipingoh good, happy to see that not everyone in the general is a brainlet
there is 0 tactical advantage to waiting for your whole team to be ready to spawn most of the time, in fact, it puts you at a disadvantage when the enemy team usually rallies around your spawn point, ready to spawn rape you
>>17620542It should be something a support should always have in mind, but depending entirely on the suit matchups and overall team layout, it varies how much a support should focus on it. a GM Sniper Custom is bad at it, for example, since you don't stagger on hit, while a MP Guntank can hunker down and countersnipe just about any suit in the game.Countersniping is also really rough if the enemy has more supports. I've had times where I try to countersnipe, but I'm on my own against two snipers, so I can hardly do anything. In a situation like that I have to focus on the enemy GPs and hope our raid(s) can break throughAs an aside, I love when you're such a problem to the enemy as a support that they dedicate multiple units JUST to rushing you down just to then die to the airstrike an ally called on me. I enjoy sacrificial strikes like that
>>17620589So your solution is to spawn into the enemy team alone instead?
>>17620595how about not giving them copious amounts of time to get together and wait around your spawn?
Now I know how shitty it is to be on the receiving end of a DS. Atleast I finally got the Prototype Magellan top gun for the Heavy arms.
>>17620601All I can tell you is that every time I see somebody spawn alone to contest the point he just gets shredded instantly by the opposing team's entire force, then his team is down one guy in the next team fight
>constant failed matchmaking Goddamnit I just want to play
>>17620611it's the same effect when everyone spawns at once, except your whole team is getting shot and down swung from behind. at least if one or two spawn at once, they can distract the stragglers for a moment for the rest of your team to recoup
>Real talk time...You Niggas and Japs in B rank need to buck up and win matches, especially in 250, I won't carry a team of fuckwits...I Love My Zaku II Heavy Arms.
>>17620656Shame I got the 300 cost version Heavy Arms.
>>17620533It’s pretty good on the desert map too, most of the players just brainlessly charge the hill and you can snipe them from either on the hill or from the outside if they have the hill
>>17611303Its called zone of the enders
>Be vanilla Efreet>City>GM Guard on enemy team>He crouches with shield to pew pew at us>Literally just walk up and shotgun his shield to stagger and then melee him into a death comboI really don't know why they made it so the Guard's shield doesn't stop stagger from multi-hit stuns like MGs, shotguns, and rapid missiles
>>17620656So sick of these fucks in 200 rated right now.
>>17621026What’s the matter anon don’t you like swarms of GM Trainers descending like locusts with bazookas?
>>17621107An entire team of GM Camoufs can wipe anything thrown at them.Trust me, I was part of one.
PSA to raidsDon't just boost straight into a vanilla efreet
The fact you can't say: "Close formation!" while stuck in purgatory is complete bs.
So this is Amphibious Power...not badI don't think there's anything more satisfying than belly cannon > tackle > nswing > belly cannon > nswing > tackle > nswing on an enemy yellow
Desert gm rail gun shots make me hnnnng
Hidolfr VS Assault guntankhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_WWne_lfYsAll support teamhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-cLl83c8FQ
>>17621657You realize that after a tackle if the enemy has boost they can tackle you before/during an action you take?
>>17621978>Trying anything like that BEFORE baiting out the boostYeah and I regularly just walk up on people and just downswing in their face, ofc I understand how tackling works. It wouldn't be satisfying if it was fucking easy
>>17621612You can say sortie together though but god knows what that translates to on their end.
My face when piloting Gundam 5. What else plays like it?
In case you haven't seen it yet.https://bo2.ggame.jp/jp/special/card_maker.php
>>17622468That's pretty cool.
>>17620997Seriously, that thing should be a fucking immovable object. I just want to tank for my team with my bigass shield dammit.
I love this game but it takes me half an hour to find a match
>>17622768What's your connection like?What time do you usually play?Keep in mind most of the player base is located in asia.
>>17622776Even at 3 bars the game will do that annoying pop-up menu telling my connection sucks.I play at odd hours, I should probably check Japan time.
If the game features English text already, why no word on American localization release?
>>17623421Congratulations on being the reason why Americans are stupid and why Gundam games will never be popular in the west.
>>17623448How am I stupid?
>>17623448>>17623453A western localization was announced recently, it's also in the OP
>>17623494I know that, but if there is an english text option they have not released much info besides the initial announcement it just comes off as very strange
>>17621107GM's and bazooka spam = poor man's skill.Fuck these kinds of players...
>>17623448They won't be popular because they're shit.
I really wish rank was determined by individual performance instead of team wins, tired of my rank getting wrecked by braindead teammates
>>17623631To some extent it is as a result of the rival system. I've got a 49% winrate in both basic and ace matches, but a 54% and 61% rival win rate in them respectively
>>17623448A team based multiplayer console game with no ingame voice chat feature could never get popular in the west.Splatoon only works due to its unique mechanics, and wins largely being based on personal skill rather than team cooperation.
>space rank dropped to B+ because subhuman teammates can't cover the AceI fucking detest that faggot island, 2 nukes weren't enough
>>17623716I hate ace matches, most of the time you get some retard as ace who just constantly charges into the middle of the enemy team
>>17623766>>17623716>the ace is a stealth suit
Can the developers just rename B ranks 'Purgatory' now.Because I need to get out of it.
>>17623884That's what I thought for a while. You get out of there eventually.>>17623766Had an absolutely awful ace match recently. Team was just unga bunga-ing on mountain, and I ended up as the Ace while playing GSC. I potentially could have turned the tables, but I was so mad at how terrible my team was that I quit immediately after becoming Ace.
>>17623884>>17623910When my space rank was introduced as B+ its only dropped since then to B- I dread space not because of the combat but because my team is guaranteed to be room temp IQ rookies while the enemy are all Newtypes
I'm making an account now to play on my Japanese PSN account. Is this a fun game and will I let my team down?
>>17624108Fun? thats subjective, will you let your team down? thats for sure.
