10 days left on the SC collab. I hope you guys get everything you want. https://kofallstar.netmarble.com/en/soulcalibur6/
I still don't believe they gave us a fighter as good as Catsuit Ivy for absolutely free and enough memories to max her.
>>1086678Yeah, that was weirdly generous. I wonder how they will pull the rug under us now.
This is absurd
>>1087061God that's depressing to seeThis is the strongest I have.Also I wonder why the second battle pass track final tier is only the f2p units. I just want Seong Mi-Na
>>1087061I got mine to the 400s too and she solo'd Dark Ash in floor 90 of the Tower of Trials. I got that far with Devil Jin but had been stuck ever since. Crazy to think he's already been power crept, and by a free character too.
For real though, why did they make OG Ivy so fucking shit compared to everyone else? It's the first time where the first banner fighters are better than the second one in a collab.
>>1088018Apparently, Mi-na is THE broken unit of the collab.
>>1088087Dunno, she only has bleed for her and shitton of recent characters have immunity to it. Taki and Cassandra from the first banner are miles worse in PvP. And free Ivy shits on all PvE content for now.
>>1088087She's a good support, but on the damage department Taki, Cass and Cat Ivy are waaaaaayyy better.
Mina just got nerfedhttps://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/76696
So is it not possible to A3 this bitch for free, unlike every other character released in this manner? Someone in the forums said you should already have her at A2 if you got every possible coin so far, but I'm pretty sure I did and I'm 150 coins away from my second memory. And either way I don't see where we're gonna get another 5000 coins before the collab ends, unless they gift us a bunch.
>>1089083Not free, but you can get another one of her memories from the Battle Pass if you pay $40
Those tower of trials stages where you have to bring an attack, a defence and a balance character to kill each of the 3 bosses are bullshit. Also I'm getting walled by Khronen in the floor 105 now...
>>1089083According to this, we will be around 2500 coins short to get her to A3https://kofas.dualing-am.com/230104_cassandra/
You can thank the gooks for the Mi-na nerf.https://youtu.be/u4zQ1f3dqawHonestly it's funny and sad that NM instead of buffing her, nerfed her after everyone rolled thinking she would apply the 2 stacks. This and gacha Ivy being so shit make regret rolling on the second banner.
I won't be able to get Regular Ivy or Mi-na but I got perky ninja nips
>>1090103https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/77090They actually listened to the complaints. Very nice.
>>1090430imshallah netmarble based based BASED
>>1090430Oh shit, the 3k rubies are for everyone
I went to pity three times on each character banner, for a total of 1200 individual rolls, and I rolled a collab fighter seven times (used two of my selectors as of this screenshot). That's just under 0.6% success rate if my math is correct, on banners where there's a 1.2% chance of getting a collab fighter, so I guess I got pretty unlucky. Got pretty lucky with the cards though.
>>1090894Who did you use your selectors on?
Fuck this annoying-ass floor holy shit
>>1091008The first time I went to pity on the first banner I only got one character and used the selector to get the other one (don't remember which was which). Then the same exact thing happened in the second banner. Then I waited until this final week to roll more in case they gave us more tickets or something.I just got lucky and rolled another Mi-Na with my weekly rubies. This allowed me to A4 her with the two tickets I was holding onto (good thing I hadn't used one of them to get another Ivy, this is why you wait until the very end), which got me the token reward from her codex entry, which allowed me to craft another moon imprint stone, so now she has a full set and 300k+ CP.
>>1092419>so now she has a full set and 300k+ CP.Isn't that kinda low? I've got Ivy to A3 without moon/star stones and only one special card and she has 270k CP.I need to get more catsuit Ivy memories, but I can't be assed to play Dream Match.
>>1092421She goes up to 376k if I give her my cards that are transcended almost to max (had these on my A6 Catsuit Ivy before and they take her to just over 400k). Also I put some of her EX core points on skills instead of stats, maybe that's a mistake? Also my fame buffs are 10 HP/15 ATT/11 DEF/10 PEN for all elements. I don't know what else I could possibly do to make her stronger.
>>1092671If you replace the option card with Cassandra on it ("An Omen That Must Not Come True") with the one that has the Soul Calibur on it ("Spirit Sword With a Will of Its Own"), assuming you have it, you can get another big CP boost.
So how does ex core board work?
>>1092421I'm kinda new to the game how did you get a characters cp that high.My Ivy is only around 90k a3 with stones and base banner setcards since I'm unlucky and wasn't able to pull a full set from the sc banner.
>>1093027You get more points the more you awaken the character, and you just put them wherever you want.>>1093043These massively bloated CP counts are mainly a consequence of cards that literally have "adds 15k CP" as an effect instead adding an actual skill or improving a stat.Although 90k is low for A3. Make sure you've opened all her cores and fed her HP/ATT/DEF capsules to her limit in the level up screen.
>>1093051Yeah it's most likely my shitty setcards causing low cp because I already opened all her cores and used as many capsules as it would let me.
>>1093080Since Rugal, all the banner sets have been more or less interchangeable, only differencing from what type/color they buff so you can just wait for a set that buffs blue types/women/balance to boost your Ivy
>>1093043Look at option cards that raise Crit Rate. These are the ones that inflate CP numbers, aside from the ones that have flat CP increase in their description.
Dawn of the last day of collab. What's your damage report?
>>1093763Decided randomly yesterday to pity for a Taki, and ended up being able to A3 her.
>1.4 million CP teams in Absolute WarWew lad
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/77182The scrapped Hotaru is being added as a freebie unit tomorrow. EX Vol 8 is releasing on the 25th.
>>1093763$0pretty much nothing and since they're collab I think I'm fucked out of ever properly awakening the gacha Ivy I gotI wish she was Seong Mi-Na so bad.Or canon brunette Setsuka
>>1093763>Freebie Ivy at A5, soon to be A6>Taki at A3>Banner Ivy at A2>Free Cassandra at A1>Banner Cassandra unawakenedMy rubies are slowly recovering.
I got Mina, and she's the one I really wanted so I'm happy
I stopped playing this game for months and only came back 4 days before the event ended.
I got lucky again on my very last pull with the rubies I scrounged today and rolled one more Taki which allowed me to A4 and get one more star imprint stone. This means I couldn't spare the selectors for Cassandra so she stays unawakened, but I figured the stone was worth it.Maybe they secretly boost the rates near the end to reward last minute purchases.
>>1093763Catsuit Ivy at A6Normal Ivy at A3Mi-na at A2Free Cassandra at A1All have one special card each, Catsuit Ivy has 2.2 full gacha sets2 rush dungeon setsat least 2 of each option card from the collabBoth Ivy variants have full stones, including moon and star.I've grinded like a madman at the last hours to get rush dungeon sets and last free rubies from Hobo boss fight.
I hate not having characters i like but I also really really need setcards so I would hate to decide between pulling for multiple sets of good cards or characters I like.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIy_ZLP07U0Hotaru PV>>1093763I didn't roll on the second character banner but I'm happy with A3 Cass and A1 Taki
Next is Valentine's Day?
>>1093843I hope they release more scrapped units, lady Shingo was really cute
Do you guys have a guild? All the suggestions I'm getting on the guild tab seem to be either very tryhard or very tryhard in spanish/tagalog/thai
>>1094792Yeah, is named neog
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/77207Time to tell NM they did good with the collab
>>1094876I told them the collaborations I wanted next hoping more people are also asking for at least one of these.OpmBleachPersonaFotns BakiJojo'sNarutoYakuzaDarkstalkers
>>1094923I should of mentioned punishing gray i would love to see kof characters in punishing gray.
>>1094876Don't tell them it was easy to awaken Catsuit Ivy or they're gonna make it harder next time.
I didn't get my 3,000 ruby distribution.
>>1094876On it. What was the CP needed from your guys to 100% this collab?Also is there a way eventually fully raise an EX collab fighter after it ended or do dimensional invites and shit still not work. I need to comment on that in the free text on the end and I want to make sure I haven't forgotten any merchanics
>>1095450>What was the CP needed from your guys to 100% this collab?I've cleared everything with normal Ivy at A3 with 260k CP. And later beat lvl 50 Hobo boss and last challenge tower with maxed out Catsuit Ivy. It's not even CP that was the deciding factor, but her retarded Darkness damage output.>Also is there a way eventually fully raise an EX collab fighter after it ended or do dimensional invites and shit still not work.If you didn't get EX to A5, then no. Dimensional invites don't work on EX chars and the only thing that you can farm for them is using EX chars on dispatch missions to get shards and craft their special memory to go A6 and then another for A7.
>>1095461Cheers for the answers and also fuck me.Thanks, time to elaborate and finish my submission. Guess my Gacha Ivy is permanently bricked
>>1095450>>1095472People have been begging Netmarble to add a generic EX memory type pretty much since EX fighters were introduced back in the SF collab. It will probably happen eventually but they're being very stubborn about it. I'm pretty sure generic BS and SS memories came a lot faster.
>>1095478There's a hidden character limit on Q17. Fuck me.
>>1094923bloody roar would be awesome
for me, i was able to pay them up to $200 to get as much as possible but i didn't and i ended up with having A5 catsuit ivy, A2 ivy and cass, A1 war cass and mina and, with a sad tune, my beloved taki...
>>1093763Bit late but I've spent 68k-ish rubies in this collab (I've been hoarding since SFV). I'm pretty happy because I wanted Taki the most, but I regret trying to roll in the last day for Cassandra because I was not patient enough to hold my selector tickets (used all on Taki), and now I have 2 extra Taki memories laying around. I could've walked with an A5 Cass too if I wasn't a retard. Now I just hope the next EX isn't Vanessa or Leona so I can hoard for a while again for them or another collab that I like.
>>1095478>>1095940Somewhere down the line they gotta make extra EX memories tradable for generics.
>>1093763A6 IvyA6 Cat IvyA6 MinaGreat collab for SoulCal. Can't wait to participate in the next collab.
I wish they would let us craft the older volume EX stones. Turns out I need the Volume 7 circle stone for my Taki to have optimal damage.
Am I right to assume that everything in Hotaru exchange shop is a fucking scam? Aside from the mystery boxes that can drop tickets for the next EX Volume.Everything: specials, set cards, all imprint stones only work on Hotaru herself and she's complete shit after collab.
>>1098058Hotaru is a supporter unit but really, you don't need her at more than A1 to use her as such. Personally, I'm just picking the set, one finisher, and one memory and using all my tokens on the Mystery Boxes
Shun is nice, Iori is meh
>>1099135Poor Meiten, doesn't even make it with his bro.
>>1099135Aw man, I wanted Kukri
>>1099135thanke NM for making a skip banner after the collab
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/5/77570Shun is Green Balance, Iori is Red Attack
>>1100881Shun's attack is gonna be from 14.
They gonna be raid characters aren't they?
>>1101089Even netmarble knows his climax in 15 was lame
>>1101201I mean it's not like his 14 one isn't lame
The only consistent farmable rubies are Absolute War, League, Time Attack, Team Relay and Chapter of Fight correct?I've been out of the grind for a while
>>1101211From the previous thread>You get 230 rubies from League if you remain in Gold 1 or Platinum 5>1200 rubies from getting Platinum 1 on Absolute War>150 rubies from daily missions= 1050 rubies per week>30 rubies daily from the Secret shop= 210 rubies per week>420 Rubies if you get SS rank on Novice Time Attack>400 Rubies if you get SS rank on Master Time Attack>600 Rubies if you get SS Rank on Veteran Time Attack>400 from the weekly mission, it is possible to complete it twice per week so, 800 rubies>450 rubies for Team Relay Dungeon weekly>230+1200+1050+210+420+400+600+800+450= 5360 in average per week
>>1101259I'm pretty sure I never get more than 200 out of League, even if I win all my matches.>>1098058They probably designed this Hotaru for something else that didn't happen and just had her sitting around, so they figured they'd throw her in to tide us over until the next banner. They could at least have made the stones work for Gato as well to add some perceived value and correct the mistake of releasing him without stones that he can actually use, since his codex gave EX stones instead.I ended up buying the circle stone before I realized that the boxes can drop tickets. Though I guess the likelihood of getting tickets out of the boxes and then getting EX drops out of the tickets on top that is probably insanely small.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVUGn1PEx4YIori is just a reskin of his SS version.
Fuck. Granted, I already have everything from the normal gacha, but it still stings losing that many tickets.
>>1104111They should've added another 2003 character
Shunei is a green BAL. Decreases cooldown on his skills with any basic attack and also debuffs enemy's DEF. Immune to Burn, Chill, Freeze. Becomes immune to damage and gets regen when his HP hits 30%. Has Shield whenn his HP hits 50%. Buffs his own ATK with every landed hit up to 75%.1 applies Burn and decreases critrate and DEF. Bonus DMG against Chilled targets. Also basic attack DMG.2 applies Chill and decreases attack and movement speed. Bonus DMG against Burned targets. Same increase of basic attack DMG.3 has HA, increases critrate and ATK.All three skills can be used under attack.Core finisher buffs ATK for the whole team.XV Iori is a red ATK. Decreases his finisher cooldown with every landed skill. Deals fullscreen damage with every attack if applied Darkness beforehand. Immune to Burn, Darkness, Fear. Gains damage immunity when his HP hits 30% and a Shield when his HP hits 80%.1 is a chargeable move. Applies fullscreen Fear at the start of the charge. Non-charged version deals Darkness, buffs ATK. Fully charged increases ATK even further and applies heavier Darkness debuff.2 is a grab. Applies Burn. 90% chance to reset cooldown on 1 upon landing 2. Increases critrate for the 90%.3 has HA, increases critrate, same chance to reset cooldown on 1. In PVP has a chance to remove HA and Shield from the enemy.1 and 3 can be used under attack.Gacha option card works on any EX fighter. Increases critrate, so inflates CP.Gacha set is another Quick Mode set that works on any EX fighter. Increases ATK and Penetration upon using awakening.Rush dungeon set works on all versions of Iori, Shermie, Hotaru and Athena. Increases Burn, Chill and Darkness DMG and also ATK when you land any skill.
Shunei's 1 and 2 can be used for some retarded damage with his basic combo. Especially with awakening and this Quick Mode set.Iori is a complete filler if you've got free Ivy from the collab.
They just killed the EX CYS set with this new one.
Fucking lol, they really just slapped the XV logo on Shun's XIV
>>1105641She'll probably be paired up with a popular old character in her banner like Shun'ei was with Iori. I'm guessing it will be Ash or Benimaru.
>1 full set>1 option>both supers>only got Iori with no memoriesfuck, oh well.Time to save up >60k rubies for the next EX fighter I want.Can someone double check my math? I think it works out to a roughly 48% chance of getting a specific EX fighter at least 4 times in 600 attempts
>>1105239>new character does stupid numbers in hardest contentThis happens every release, it stopped being surprising a long time ago.
>>1108010The funniest thing is that it's solved content so it doesn't even matter at all. Why can't they just make new modes that are fun so we can use the powercreep for something actually meaningful?
Is it even worth pulling for an EX fighter if you can't A5 them?
>>1109026Depends on what fighters you already have. SoulCal characters were worth it even at A3, because their CP and damage is through the roof.
>>1108087They've done harder content like Deimos Base and Boss Showdown, but everyone complained those were too hard. It's difficult to strike a balance. The top floors of Tower of Trials are pretty crazy, I'm still stuck at floor 100.>>1109026In general A3 is enough since it unlocks all of the imprint stone slots. Awakening further pretty much just gives you more CP, which can be important since that's the main way they gatekeep content, but these overpowered EX characters already get crazy high CP at A3 with the right cards and stones.
from what people been saying, Shun is the best unit in the game under A5, while Iori is the best unit in the game at A5.
>>1109136Shun seems really frail to me. I wonder want cards to give him since the banner set doesn't seem to be the best for him.
Holy fuck I'm dumb.>>1109026After they've pushing the EX skills that are better than awakening skill, not really.
>>1109026The power creep is so out of control that A5 a unit is mainly for min-maxing. With A3 the new units are strong enough to tackle all the content currently available in the game.
https://youtu.be/L4Jij2sLE4E>2 Trillion damage on GeeseNM has a fetish for big numbers
Which EX skill is better for Iori Berserk or Concentrate?
>>1114092Looking at those videos where he does trillions of damage, Concentrate
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/78046Valentine's filler events. Interestingly, you can craft mystery boxes with rubies inside while the usual mystery boxes don't have tickets for the next banner
In case you guys are missing 10 shards to craft Shun's badge, those were given as an apology for a patch and are in the Notifications tab of your inbox. You have until Feb 14th to claim them.
The new Athena Battle pass is a fucking scam. $65 for the highest tier and $25 for the first one.
>>1121937Isn't that the same price as previous battle pass tiers? It was always a scam.
>>1122320normally the higher tier is $50
Seems like the new banner is dropping in two days
>>1125305How do you have tickets? I don't have any.
>>1125431The tickets were in a box of the priciest growth package. This is not mine, by the way, it was posted on the forums.
>>1125305Hope it's something good.
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/60/78388A new TA and Relay Dungeon will be addedThey promise to rebalance the game so it makes sense to raise your fightersThey will rework things so element is relevant againUse pic related after tomorrow's update for 2023 rubies
>>1126116>They promise to rebalance the game so it makes sense to raise your fightersMore power creep.>They will rework things so element is relevant againMore hard immunities against one element and weaknesses against others. As long as they don't make enemies outright immune to normal non-elemental damage SC6 and Shun'ei will shit on them. And if they take SC6 and Shun as the baseline, then everyone from the roster need a huge rework to keep up.Of course they won't redo like 80% of the game.
Your new banner
Why KUSANAGI is SS and not BS?
For some reason I had more luck getting shun'ei than iori, I had to get the pity just to get iori.
>>1126116"New growth system" sounds really sus, like they're gonna add yet another fucking meter to fill out in the fighters on top of limit breaks, levels, awakening, cores, cards and stones. And they'll try to make it seem more meaningful by making whatever item is required for it take a really long time to get. That's the pessimistic view though, we'll see.>>1126146>>1126152Wonder what attribute they're gonna come up with that can be applied to both of these character and serve as the activator for the stones/cards.
hi anons, i'm trying to form /vmg/'s team in the 4cc and i wanted to ask if you are interested in choosing a character to represent the thread on the team as a player, if you don't know what i'm talking about >>1119161
>>1126116>Make element relevant again You guys better hurry and finish the tower trials before this
>>1126255I'd vote for Gonuts 96' because he used to be meta for so long, if not him maybe Kyo because of "le game's mascot", so pick his EX version instead, dunno what other anons might think.
>>1126253>Wonder what attribute they're gonna come up with that can be applied to both of these character and serve as the activator for the stones/cards.The banner is called Clandestine Operation so expect the other agents to be part of it.>>1126255>>1126391I nominate Nameless since he's pretty much the game's face at this point.
>>1126391>>1126421alright, i shall add them both to the final poll deciding the full roster this saturday if that thread is still up, any other suggestions such as aesthesics/music etc. feel free to mention in there or just mention 4cc/divegrass and i will check it out, thanks for your input
>>1126152Leona's tummy looks mighty fine in this version, holy fuck>>1126468Both nameless and goenitz themes are good to put if one of them make it in the roster as their goal themehttps://youtu.be/cbvk2XVh5rYhttps://youtu.be/p4zr_ANavQQ
>>1126152So, Leona has skill swaps with her awakening skill.
>>1126543Yeah, the same thing that Haoh, Taki and Mi-na have
>Just wanted Leona>Had to use 3 selectors on her to get her to A5>Meanwhile Luong wouldn't leave me alone Wew.
XV Leona's 1 has a guaranteed removal of shield/HA in PvP. Is this a first fighter with 100% removal?
Leona also has retarded physical damage when her awakened EX skills land on burning (1 skill) and bleeding (2 skill) enemies.
Luong's 1 and 3 shit out a lot of damage in tandem.Also, this gacha set works on EXs, but only fully on female ATK types.
>dat jiggle on new Leona
>>1129194Yeah, but you need her at A5 to use it
>>1129199You also need your target to be burning in order to activate one of the effects
>>1129273So just use 3?Her 3 fires up the target and debuffs against shock, while 1 shocks the target and debuffs against fire.In theory the moment she gets awakening she can just delete anything with spamming 1 and 3.
>>1129277I know Luong can burn. I was just adding to your comment of what fighters the set works best on.
>>1129249So much sexo
Luong makes EX Iori even more powerful. apparently.
>>1130700Yeah, her LS boosts male characters and is hilarious
I don't understand what do you need to do to break through Dark Ash ultra armor in this new veteran TA? I've killed him afer 3:40 on the clock, but I didn't even see what exactly it was that gone through him.
>>1131697He just stops taking damage randomly, I don't understand either. I still managed to get 1:12 using my level 90 Shun'ei with no special card, just a Rugal set on him pretty much. If I kept trying maybe I could get the SS, I guess you just have to avoid getting stunned and keep attacking so you can damage him when the game decides you're allowed to. But I didn't wanna waste any more of my life on it.By the way it's just depressing that a Shun'ei with absolutely no resources put into him is still so much stronger than fully maxed out A7 SS/BS fighters like classic Hwoa and Nameless, but I guess that's the meta.
>>1131742>>1131697He becomes immune to damage as along there are mooks in the field. You have to kill them first before he takes damage again.
>>1131864I have Leona at A3 and she does less Damage than Banner Cass also at A3. I wonder if there is something to improve her damage or if she's underwhelming unless she's at A5.
>>1132500Her pre-A5 awakening skill stats are nothing outstanding, comparing to recent additions. But with this skill she shits out damage fast. Her normal 1 also has shitty arc that is so high that it misses most characters if they're too close.
>>1132504Well, that sucks. I can probably go through another pity in the remaining time but chances are a collab will happen in the next month or two so I will save my rubies.Glorious tits, though
so who are the best ex characters in the game currently?
>>1132746Eh, any of the latest ones work.But Shun'ei is the best out of them all. He works with any set and opton card.
>>1132500Leona is A5 or bust, sadly.
https://youtu.be/NXCmE1LX85ESolo but now vs Rugal
>>1133376I mean, look at those.
>My Cass doesn't have enough damage to kill 118th floor Ash>She's my only damaging defense type Man, these stages were you HAVE to bring one of each type of fighter to be able to damage one of the 3 bosses are a bore. It's so easy too, I could nuke all 3 of them with just 3 rotations of my EX Leona buffed by Luong if the shitty damage nerf by type didn't exist.
I'm stuck on floor 29 of the event tower, run out of time on the third fat guy with infinite armor and a bajillion HP. All I have is an awakened Luong, didn't get her special card, didn't get Leona and I don't want to spend rubies on this banner. Is there anything I can do that's better than this?
>>1138701I meant UNawakened Luong. Just rolled her once on my free rubies and that's it.
>>1138706>unawakened LuongHow? Her CP should be in the 50-60 range max at this level and you get completely damage gated with this CP at around 20th floor.
>>1138920Shun could clear his tower at lvl 90 but I'm afraid Luong needs her card to pull it off.
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/78687Go shit on them for the new Time AttackAlso, volume 10 confirmed for next month, Collab moved to May
>>1139171>volume 10 confirmed for next monthWho's it gonna be? Another XV rep? I hope it's not Dolores, because I'm broke right now.
>>1139213If the pattern holds, vol 10 will be all dudes, either two from XV or one from XV and from the Ash saga
>>1138920Nah, with the Rugal set she gets to around 100k. Also I got lucky and rolled +crit rate for attack types as the transcend effect on that Kasumi option card, that card alone gives her like 10k. It's not quite enough though, those fat bastards just take too long to kill. If I get lucky with the cooldown resets on her skill 2 I can get through faster, I made it to the boss in an attempt just now, but only had 6 seconds left and lost. I was kinda hoping there was something I was overlooking to make this just a bit easier, but I guess not.>>1138977I had the same situation with Shun'ei last month, unawakened with no special card and no Iori, and he chewed through the tower like it was nothing. Really makes Luong look like a shitter.
>>1139464>makes Luong look like a shitterLuong is more of a support anyway, even my fully awakened one isn't that impressive in the damage department
Dictator is really busted for PvP. Even after all these months. Especially when it's this stupid rule when 1 fighter KO = team KO.
https://youtu.be/bLkslo9zoHAhttps://youtu.be/jWv8VXv1wdAhttps://youtu.be/87rdLWGigP0Turns out the KR players underestimated Leona's potential too much. She mogs EX Iori to hell and back.
>>1139818You still need to pull her 9 times to get to that.
>>1139933The comparisons are always made with max investment anyway, so...Also they're saying that Luong is better support than Athena XV too, but she isn't a priority if you already have Athena XV (and that it's better to wait for even more broken support units).
>>1137791I actually managed to kill Ash by changing sets around and the two floors afterwards got murdered by Leona.
I don't have XV Leona, would be nice if someone could get me a screenshot of her using the BS special card without the skill preview UI (and ideally without damage numbers, just do it when the map is clear in an easy story mode mission or something) to complete this set.
>>1141540Why is bean cans Leona so angry?
>>1141540Here you go. Her hair cover 80% of her face in the later frames.
>>1141563Probably gas pains
If there is anything I can say about this game, it made me drop it and just play kof15. I am so sick of the awakening shit and random crashes.
>>1141570>>1141574Thanks. Looks like the angle/camera position is a bit different just for her.
Started this game a few days ago. I find it quite fun but I've seen a lot of people say the game is dying/in a bad state. What do you think of this?
>>1143902It's not dying per se. Just went into "ridiculous powercreep" phase. Like 90% of the roster is left behind. Every collab and almost every EX fighter release is one-upping the previous ones. If you just started this doesn't really bother you. You can farm a lot of rubies by clearing story mode and various other modes for the first time. And you need to hoard these rubies for the next collab in May, which is guaranteed to be broken.
>>1143902There are always fatalists saying the game is dying, but it doesn't actually show any signs of dying. It's still consistently getting new content at the same pace it always did. It does feel a bit stagnant by now though, as the devs don't seem to know what to do other than keep pushing the power creep further and further. Maybe this is losing them players, I dunno.They did promise some changes here >>1126116 to shake things up a bit, we'll see what happens.
>>1143908I see, in that case I will continue using this CHAMP because he's awesome. Well I say that but it keeps giving me the "unsupported file type" error I'm talking about Iori 98.
Bait rerun banner will run through the next two weeks. Rugal/Duo/Haoh/Nako/Granny with their respective sets, finisher, and options. You can pick one fighter and card to improve their drop rate.Transcending cards is getting reworked, now you can pick three effects so one gets picked instead of being completely randomized. You can even buy a special item to raise the odds of one effect being picked.
>>1145423Forgot the link like a retardhttps://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/79024
>>1145423>>1145432Should have posted this link too since it details the banners.https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/5/79092I guess this banner will still be around when vol 10 drops? If vol 10 isn't amazing I might roll for this instead, I could use Rugal.Those Mai and Leona option cards seem odd, I hope they're planning to add more shit that requires autoplay like the old Rugal Boss Showdown.
>>1145924So I'm guessing I should only summon on a banner if I'll be able to hit pity? It doesn't carry over right?
>>1145924No, this rerun banner ends on March 27th, Vol 10 should drop the 28th>>1145964Yeah, the only pity that carries over is the unified banner. And also yes, you want to be able to hit pity at least once
>update adds cards that encourage you not to play the game yourselflmao
>>1146002Dang, you're right. The timers for the banner and the vol 10 tickets are the same. I'm pretty the last time we had a re-run banner it overlapped with the new "main" banner for a bit. Oh well. At least we should know who the new characters are a couple of days before they drop, if I don't like them that much I'll actually use my temp rubies on the re-run. I literally only have duo out of these characters.>>1147071You think these cards are for people mad enough to run stuff like League and AW on auto? Seems nuts to spend thousands of rubies on this.
Is it possible for a new player to obtain old event collaboration units through regular play?
>>1147807No, your only hope is a rerun. You can use them on dream match, for what is worth
I was just looking at some card arts and came across this vanessa, thinking that it'd be nice if I pulled her. Then she showed up 2 multis later out of nowhere!
>>1150844Congrats anon, she's one of the best alternate outfits in the game
Went a little over 10k rubies on the new banner, got lady chin, nakoruru and my boy rugal along with some others like Adelheid and 97 orochi. Pretty satisfied with the result
>>1152337So is it just the two of us here? This thread is kinda inactive.
>>1152366Activity increases when new banners drop but since there are no actual new content there is not a lot to talk about, especially if you're a veteran
My guess for vol 10 is super bait. So coomer shit and cool shit. Jenet and Rock. They will be middling and fall off the ex tier list in a month.
I've been doing my dailles today but I didn't get any rubies in my mailbox, the only ones i got were 100 from beating one of my records. I didn't get most of my hall of elements battle card tickets either. Is this a normal bug that i just have to wait on a bit?
>>1152616Hopefully it's just dudes so I can skip.
They added profiles for Mai and Kula with new graphics in the "new fighter intorduction" section of the forum that I hadn't noticed existed until just now. I guess they're the next banner.>https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/list/54/1
>>1153318KOF XV was a mistake
>>1153318Safe skip for me, then. At least XV Leona had a different top.
>>1153318ez skip. thank god. hopefully, the card set is shit so i dont have to dump any rubies into the card banner
>>1153372Not rolling on these chars and im not even a coomer but Mai's tit jiggle is bad in this. they can't even get coom bait right.
>>1153372The fuck happened with the art of these two? Mai looks kind of bad in the l2d and her model looks weird, while Kula l2d looks bad but at least her model looks cute.Mai was the bait for me in this, but they fucking blew it lmao.
>>1153732Looks like they slapped this shit together in a week honestly. Lame animations, bad art, barely touched up SS models. What were they thinking putting this shit out?
I kinda like the unit art, mai's face looks good
with this update Team Krohnen is the first team to have all ex characters.
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/5/79388GENERIC EX MEMORIES ARE BEING ADDED
>>1155215And what bullshit will they be gated behind?
>>1155223The new team relay
>>1155215Oh great, can't wait for the new tier of fighters above EX... At least I'll finally finish my bride Nina.
>>1155227And this relay is gated behind it's own limited tickets.
This update is looking hype! I wonder how many memories we'll be able to grab
>>1155215Fucking lol at these memories being element specific. They just HAD to do something annoying like that.
>>1155433The color of the EX memory can be changed by sacrificing FES memories. Anyway the next tier of characters will probably put the final nail on the coffin on this game. All your EX Damage dealers will be phased out while your EX supports will be somewhat useful, until the eventual Rainbow tier supports come out shitting all over your ex support collection. Characters were getting phased out just by every monthly banner so can you imagine a new tier? That's right these EX fighters are going to be trash in comparsion. Knowing this why would anyone willing to invest in EX characters anymore? Just wait 6 months or less and you'll have saved up for the new rainbow FaG units.
>>1155568that's the curse of meta. I myself am just chilling with omega rugal, if he can continue to get me through content for a while I don't desire anything stronger.
>>1155577yeah but can you really enjoy O.Rugal A7 knowing he does less fucking damage than Luong A7 (a fucking support character) because of power creep?
>>1155577 Yeah. i don't care that much, what i do care about however is the longevity of the game. If they keep this powercreep up the game will die, and as someone that only started playing a month ago, that would be disastrous.
>>1155586NTA but yeah. I'm still using BS Nameless in every mode I can even though he was painfully power crept a year ago
The latest incarnation of fucking RUGAL, the god, shouldn't be weaker than fucking Luong. get out of here. You guys are being GAY. He should be the shit. He should have 50 dots, and 150% crit rate, 100% def decrease on enemies. Kyo get raped even worse being the first EX. Weakest EX in the game. It's retarded that he's weak just because he was released first.
>>1155613Since I'm still a newfag you shouldn't really be surprised that I don't feel much of a power difference. I do agree that ATTACK fighters should be stronger than SUPPORT fighters, even after a year. I feel bad for kyo
FOTM shit plagues all gachas. The problem with KOFAS is that there's no content for all these broken OP characters that get released every 2 months.
Banners are live lads! Go use your tickets.
At first glance Mai seems the better of the two, she inflicts burn, chill, and Physical damage. Kula has a new status effect, BRRR which is Chill on steroids. They both have Concentrate and a new skill that grants burn/chill immunity respectively to your entire team for 15 seconds.Set is identical to Luong's but for Defense and ChillOption boosts Critical rate, defense and reduces cool downOnly one Ex generic is available through eventNew Team Relay is immune to all status effects and weak to Chill and Burn. BS and SS units gets major buffs against himShingo set is bought with rubies, 4500 each piece
>>1155876>BS and SS units gets major buffs against himBS Nameless, my beloved.
New Mai looks korean.
>>1155878"major" All it does is give them damage equal to EX units. Ultimately it does nothing and you should still be using EX units.
>>1155568>>1155586Not them, but doing less damage isn't the problem, at least not the one I have.The problem is the cards/fighters that have passives that make them nigh-unkillable while my own fighters die instantly if they get breathed on.>Gold Barrier>Invincible>Gold Barrier>InvincibleAnd on and on.
>>1156181Well I for one can't tell Japanese and Koreans apart just by looking. Here's a direct comparison of the models either way.
>>1156553SS Mai's still cuter
Fucking hell, went to pity twice and pulled none of them. probably the worst banner luck I've had so far.
>>1156553not sure how I feel about how EX Mai is staring at you the whole time
Stalling with EX Leona and Taki is the meta for this. Kind of sucks that both purple and red are my worst elements tho, so I can't abuse it for more damage than this. I hope the Collab/next EX season leaks before this ends, so I can decide about rolling or not for Mai (her stage intro and stage ending animations won me over, even if I don't like her Korean l2d that much).Also optimal team showcase from the KR gods:https://youtu.be/zSJqQgFDqfshttps://youtu.be/S8y2H7VlSFcPlus A1 EX Mai destroying 120 tower Omega Rugal:https://youtu.be/lJlzr5AWX7g
>>1157906Apparently you really need someone at A5 with either Soul Charge or Limitless in the EX core board to really buy time. I don't have anyone like that so I'm kinda stuck doing just over 50B.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qALSiRZSBbw
>>1156553It just occurred to me that I should add a back shot to highlight SS Mai's unique feature.
Well after a lot of testing in practice mode I managed to muster just over 95B against this fucker. That's probably as good as I'm gonna do.I tried using my A2 War Maiden Cassandra instead of Leona, wasn't good.Tried using my A3 SS Iori with five imprint stones instead of Kula (with a Halloween Xiangfei option card on Leona so she can deal both burn and chill), wasn't good.Unawakened EX Mai is better than A5 SS Mai, sadly.
>>1159466Do you get more rewards for more more damage done aside from that 2 bil or something.
>>1159503You need 3.5 TRILLION points over a week, or 500 billion on each daily ticket, to get every single possible cumulative point. If I understand everything correctly, there are 21150 total possible points in the whole event (150 each time you play which is one ticket per day, plus 6000 cumulative per week, for three weeks). You need 18000 points to get every reward, which is not every possible point but it's close. Although the only reward that actually matters is the EX memory which only requires 9000 points, so that's not that crazy. Also they gave us some free points and tickets because of a bug which I guess cuts down on some of the work.
Man, why did they stop giving change ups to the SS/BS fighters? I just want SS Mai to be better
>>1159559You need 100 shards and five FES memories of the color you want to change the color of the EX Memory
>>1160007They just had to make it annoying huh... Let's hope they make those shards ez to obtain in the future
>>1160007Shit, so you need 16000 event points just to get enough shards to change the color
she deserves an EX!
I hope the next EX will be Terry, my boy needs to be strong
>>1165116I'm sure Terry is always near the top of their list, but they're kind of out of options for making a new Terry visually appealing. They already went all out with a high quality model for SS Terry and then XV ended up using the same design. They could use the XIV design but I don't think that one very popular, or they could just say fuck it and reuse the SS model, but then people will call them lazy. They even already used the Garou design, though that was a really long time ago so if they can make a better model of it, that could maybe work.
>>1165158They were hyping Terry XIV up with BS Geese
>>1165305I think his model's in the game files as well.
>>1165322Yeah, it lacks textures but it has been there for years
>>1165840Maybe they'll use it then, who knows. It would break their streak of adding XV characters which seems to be their current obsession.There's no way we'll ever see those 99 Ralf and Clark.
>>1166048Honestly, I am pretty burnt out of XV characters at this point. They need to go back at the NESTS and Ash sagas and bring back seasonal variants
>>1155586Same guy from before, I know understand better what you're talking about, since I have now experienced it myself. My a1 rugal feels weak in comparison to my a1 mai and kula, and I hate it. I really like rugal as a character, but I don't feel the same for the other two. and that sucks. I want to use him in hard content but there is little reason to if mai and kula will net me a higher score. Soon Terry (one fo my other favorites) will probably get an EX, but it will only be a matter of time before he gets powercrept as well. Such a shame.
>>1166449A good amount of that power is in the equips they have, so you can keep characters relevant a little longer by equipping them with newer sets, option cards, and stones. Not a permanent solution, but it can buy more time.
Well, I got a blue EX Memory and maybe 50 shards if I'm lucky. BS Nameless is really good for this week
I don't think I'll get the 1k rubies because my green sucks, but at least I got the 100 element change thingies
>>1168707Congrats anon, what were your teams?
>>1169014Current week: https://files.catbox.moe/w8a2u4.jpgSecond week: https://files.catbox.moe/z8x6en.jpgFirst week:https://files.catbox.moe/pl3iq5.jpgThese are the runs that I remembered to take screenshots from the first two weeks so they're not my best damage wise, and I forgot to take a screenshot from the current week (the Mai team dealt a little over 120b while the rest is the Nameless team who has no fucking damage to carry itself).
I could bust my ass so i could color change my ex memory into a green memory. but Shun and Luong suck. I regret going all in for them. they're both one memory away from a5. i'll just save it for a collab or something.
>>1168707>>1169157I see you have A7 Taki, that seems to have been the ticket for this event. Either her, Mi-Na or Haohmaru at A5 so you can get Soul Charge/Limitless on the EX core board. Gotta keep that in mind for the future.I didn't have any of them that high and my greens are pretty bad so I'm not even gonna get that last bundle of crystals. I got a yellow EX memory so I could use it to A4 either Ryu or Bride Nina as I have them both at A3 with an extra memory sitting. But it's probably best to hold onto the memory at least until the next collab, it might come in handy to complete a codex.
>>1166641How are you getting generic EX memories?
>>1169315You have to score 9000 points on the Alexandrite Team Relay carnival >>1168707
New banner news should come one of these days. If it's coomerbait again I will skip, possibly not playing for some time. If it's terry I will try to get him. Anything else I'm not sure.
>>1170177Try in two weeks, new banners always drop the last week of the month and chances are, it will be a collab
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/79807Collab confirmed in two weeks
>>1170430"Next update fighter summon ticket" doesn't necessarily mean collab, but it probably is one anyway. It's just about time.The amount of idiots in that forum thinking that a Mortal Kombat collab could actually happen is astounding.
>>1170585It is a Collab, regular updates are openly stated to be "EX volume whatever"
https://kofallstar.netmarble.com/en/vf5fs/storylol we're getting low poly variants too. That's gold.
>>1171103I would laugh if original variants will be more powerful than their 5th ones.Anyway, will only pull for Sarah, so Nina will have her twin to team up with.
>>1170989>>1171103>>1171101>No VanessaMan I can't catch a break. I will never get my EX Vanessa even when they had the chance to bring a character with the same name from another franchise.
>>1171220Maybe she'll be in the 2nd banner
>>1171235Pretty sure that's all the Collab characters, sadly. >Pai and Akira first banner >Jacky and Sarah second >Jacky Original for free login >Sarah Original for the coin gacha
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eU6oHOit0-M https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-EGwCQN0u4Akira and Pai trailers
>>1172862Probably means they're the first banner. The siblings will be the second and the low polys will be free somehow.
>>1172862>>1173396They seem slow as fuck compared to the previous 2 EX batches, maybe I can skip
I think I'll just use event rubies and tickets, maaaaaaaybe I'll go 1 pity for jacku but I doubt it since then I'd probably have to go for at least 1 3pg as well, and I don't want to go down 30k rubies.
Meh unless there's a really strong purple or yellow this collab is a skip, I'll keep saving. VF is too boomer for me.
https://youtu.be/6wxDE9uD4GQhttps://youtu.be/xFfD_n5x4KMThese are the best
>>1174971Blocky Rugal and Kim, too. Why Kim?
>>1174971I hate this game but I will install for vf1 characters.
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/19/80426the people on the forum are going crazyyyyy
>>1174999I think it's just an effect of their supers.
>>1175161But for the KOFAS forum, it was Tuesday
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/5/80493>>1174999>>1175236Those are freebies
>>1175565https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/5/80493Tons of events and goodies-Akira and Pai are in the first banner. Yellow ATK and Purple Balance respectively>Poly Akira and Sarah are freebies Blue and Purple both are Balance. Just like Catsuit Ivy, you can max out Akira by clearing all the events>Poly Kim and Rugal are also special freebie units, not clear yet how you get them though. Green Balance and Yellow ATK, they get new finishers and option cards>Boss Challenge against Poly Akira, Team Relay against Poly Kim, Mech Spider but with Poly Sarah as boss are other events included in this collab>Newbies and Returning players events got overhauled and now newbies can get BS, SS and Blue XV Rugal from the missions while returning players can get Chizuru, KUSANAGI or Gato. there is also a new mileage system based on buying packages with real money that rewards with XV Kyo, XV Nako and Coat Rugalhttps://youtu.be/1FAO_Z6N6RMAnother video with Manager Kriz about the collab. They explicitly state their goal is to have all fighting Game IPs in the game and specifically mention to be frustrated about no being able to do MK yet.
>>1175571that's a helluva lot of events. I hope I qualify for the new player overhaul since I haven't finished super missions yet, but I doubt it.
>>1175161>40 replies>2 million forum members (supposedly)wow, so crazy
We can get into the game now. Good luck to anyone summoning.
Dream match wins are needed again to get free Sara memories. And dream match is still stupidly broken where you don't have enough options to get out of the meat grinders.
>>1176470my only memory of dream match is fighting some guy with full ex team while I used a mix of nest kyo and gold/silver borders. the guy kept emoting while one shotting me. couldn't even block or dodge the attacks because they did too much damage and had tracking.
>>1176470>>1176476Winning just one fight per day shouldn't be that big a deal. I won on my first try with a random team against some guy who had four wins and zero losses, though I may have gotten lucky.This Sarah is interesting in that it's an actual gacha and not just a bunch of shit with the character only available as the final reward like Sol/Chun/Gato/Cassandra. So it's at least possible to get lucky with it.The new Rugal special card doesn't seem to be available anywhere, I guess it's gonna be in that Boss Challenge that's not open yet?I'm gonna need some fucking help with that Sarah Trial Dungeon thing, I just did a practice run and it was abysmal at only 3B damage. And I guess you actually have to play this one every day, unlike the Kim Team Relay where you can hold onto your tickets until the end of the week.
What is the korean consensus on Akira and Pai so far?
>>1176584Akira is the goal if you want huge damage numbers while Pai Chan is probably the best support in the game
>>1176770Damn, I still will wait for Sarah banner before pulling anything.
Haven't touched this shit for half a year, how fucked am I coming back? I remember powering shit up was cancer and you basically were fucked if you had absolute abhorrent rng on sets even if you just liked to do pve stuff
Chizuru or Gato Signature select?
>>1176837KUSANAGI>>1176833As long you have rubies to pull for the newest characters, not much. Power creep is so stupid these days that every new banner shits all over on the previous one and that in turn, trivializes pretty much all content.
>>1176839I have Kusanagi already so I picked Gato to supplement my yellows lacking forces.
Is there gonna be a second part with Sarah and Jacky or nah?
>someone in the guild did 90B to guild raid>I can barely crack minimumsGood lord what a depressing feeling. At least I don't have to complete the runs for the missions
>>1177184Yeah their banner should drop in 6 days
>>1177208Cool, I'll save my resources thenShame there's no Umenokoji or Vanessa, but no surprises
>>1177186yeah don't worry, I always fall short of what I need to actually not be useless too.
Kyo & Shermie buffed if you have them.https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/80495
I keep wiping out on ~3440 points in Jacky's karting. Some bullshit rng starts appearing in the last 200 meters like line of flags and seagull at the same time.
>>1177186Since I've got Ivy i'm just autoplaying guild raid and she facerolls to 1.5 bil for all the rewards. If you do all missions in this collab you will get VF1 Sarah to full, maybe blocky Rugal, too. And you could also faceroll guild raid.
Coupon for some ticketsVF5FSCOLLAB
Huh, I just noticed that Mai is censored in the PC launcher, but obviously not in the game. Odd.
Guys, with a PC and a cellphone you can easily just match up with yourself for easy wins in Dream Match. Unlike the d/c exploit they can't ever patch this.
>>1178461You mean with two separate accounts? That's a lot of trouble to go to just for some badges.
>>1178461Yeah but the badges aren't worth a fucking thing. I get more enjoyment out of fucking with people online. It's the only fun thing in this game.
>>1178479For the daily Sarah tokens. kek fuck the badges.
>>1178487yeah that makes sense, the sarah tokens are retard grind right now
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NisFkZM9lSsBS and SS characters are way stronger this time for the Kim Relay
>>1178351How could we possibly get more than 1 copy of poly rugal and poly sarah without buying the packs?
>>11785072000 coins from the box we got before the event started2000 coins in Rush event shop1000 coins if you do daily 1000 points run in Jacky racing event900 coins from clearing Virtua Tower1000 coins from Sarah gifting event1000 coins from Pai gifting eventDunno how many coins from Akira Boss Showdown which is not available yetDunno how many coins from all Dream Match winsSo, one VF selector is guaranteed. Two if you clear Boss showdown and Dream match. All other memories are up to your luck in pulling.
So what phones do you guys use to play and how does it run assuming you play using a phone.
>>1178533oneplus nord 2, runs okay outside of when the game is buggy for everyone, usually just after an update
>>1178912one plus nord 2 chad here too. That phone pretends to be budget but it runs stuff very well.
>>1178533I'm a poorfag living in spicland so I play on a ZTE Axon 30, game runs pretty well for the most part but the new Team Relay (Alexandrite, Kim and Sarah) does have some slowdown with all the sfx. Just lowering the graphics quality takes care of it, though
Where do you change how it shows damage numbers on the screen? I've changed it a while ago to full number, but now with damage in tens of billions I want to change it back to commas as number separators and I can't find this option anywhere.
>>1178533Poco F5 GT, runs really well with no slowdowns + game booster optimizations.
I am at a loss on how the fuck I'm supposed to progress characters. I sure as fuck don't have enough gems so I am just going to assume I am fucked for all events. I don't have any ex characters higher than 3 so this shit sucks
>>1179988if you're still new I wouldn't stress too much about getting the ex generic memory, it'll only make the game less fun. For now I'd reccomend saving until you have around 54k rubies and try to a5 a character with those, preferably a character with limitless since those are super valuable
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQB9nmLwu88I have no idea how this guy got 200+ billion on Polygon Sarah with only Iori and Ivy at A7
>>1180063he stacked a bunch of debuffs on sarah and buffs on himself before switching to iori, who then used concentration, it seems to be the best strategy for this event but required rng to be on your side
>>1180063I can make that exact team but I can only get like 42 billion. must be a skill issue.
>>1180138There's two layers of rng that are fucking with your damage because of the mechanics Sarah's blocks and her attack type debuff. On top of that the battle bugs out sometimes and your damage doesn't register when Sarah changes buffs or when you break her guard with a grab or super. Very bullshit mode.
>>1179988Use your A3 character to play the challenge modes. You can get tons of free rubies there.>>1180138What are your codex and fame stats? It could be those.
I think this is the highest I can go with this without going insane and resetting for only attack/balance buffs. I regret skipping Mai and not listening to my dick since I don't like any of these collab characters enough to fully invest in them, and EX Mai can keep up in damage with yellow Akira. Maybe if the high poly Sarah end up doing more damage (by a clear large margin) than EX Kula I'll think about maxing her.
>>1180138you just gotta keep resetting until rng is on your side. I got 245 billion with Iori A7, Poly Akira, Poly Sarah, Pai Chan, and Luong. As you can see all those character outside of Iori do SHIT damage. They're their to stack def down, damage recieved up and attack buffs for Iori. You just need one nuke character. I might take out one of the poly chars and put in another nuke so i can try to complete this shit. for the kim fight if you have mai or kula this shit is honestly braindead.>>1180868based.
Also this tower with just A1 blocky Sarah without the collab banner set or finisher was kind of fun save for the last stage where if you fuck up with her you get one shot by Akira in the last wave.
I really hate that I can't just use my favorite characters in this game. They really fucked up with the power creep shit.
how the fuck do I do damage to sarah, I don't know what the fuck it's talking about in the strat
Yup, I don't feel like stressing about that generic memory. Just gonna do 1 attempt a day and be fine with whatever score be it 20 or 30 bil on kim and 3-5 bil on sarah. I don't care enough to mess around with the rng that sarah event has lol. Alexandrite was much better than this.
>>1181267also even the koreans think this Sarah dungeon is bullshit with the fighter type buff change RNG so maybe they'll rethink this garbage and remove it
this guy has the solution
>use 3PGs on Sarah until she starts blocking>include support characters with buffs>keep switching to whichever element that Sarah is weak against>have 3 A7 characters (along with some A3 and A4)>see people on YouTube getting 100-200 billion easy>final score: 1.2 billionWhat the fuck.
>>1181476If your A7 characters aren't the top dps ones it matters little how built they arealso it's better to just have one really strong dps and fill the rest of the team slots with supporters with def down/damage amp/ark up to enable your strong dps
>do league match>cpu mai standing completely still not fighting>use move >hp bar empties>you lose
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/5/80862Sarah and Jackie tomorrow
I will go one pity and see what I get. Would be nice if I got at least 1 ex before pity so that I could grab the other with the selector.
>>1180878I tried doing exactly that except I don't have Iori, the only EXs I have at A7 are Devil Jin and Catsuit Ivy. I stacked the debuffs, waited for Sarah to become vulnerable to balance type, went in with my supposed "nukes" and tried to attack as much as possible. I only got 12 billion. So either my nukes are just shit or something else went wrong that I didn't notice.
>>1181650i had the same bullshit happen, was fighting ex mai with my own and i died while using 3pg, didn't get hit once before that and the enemy was being staggered.
>>1180868And just to prove a point I did a couple resets for 5 minutes until I got a good start just to get this shit done with. It's absolutely not worth it. It was all Leona then after I got to 232b @ 1:20 left on the clock I just afk'd for the rest of the remaining time.
Week 2 of the beginner super missions include these characters (were king's boobs always this big?) so now we can get xv rugal to a3, and we'll also get his 3pg on day 7.
>>1182000This is actually good haul for most base game mods.
Another screenshot eventhttps://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/80488Get 2000 or more on Jackie's minigame for 200 Sarah coins
>>1182000>SS IoriI wonder if they give enough memories to change up + A1 him, if so that's nice for newfags
>>1182064why would you change up before a5? it's not like you can get his better ex core skills right?
>>1182068You only get the extra core board if you change up IIRC, so those atk boosts (CU + A1) plus skill % boosts (CU + A3) help more than A5 in short term
>>1182054Why do they force us to do this stupid shit? Half the time you can't even login to their shitty ingame browser.
kusanagi is a little cheap for breaking kim's guard, too bad I noticed late he can nuke that shit down in 3 seconds flat.
Got Sarah for free. Now just to wait the koreanchads to test her damage to see if it's worth going for A5.Just by looking at her skills she seems busted and she also has a limitless EX core skill on top of it.
>>1182362Now find a character to break VF1 Sarah that way.
>>1182466I have not even tried sarah much. I don't fucking understand her fight at all
Shermie can cheese lvl 50 Akira for some reasonhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2yl_Dya_Fg
I hate how big the bosses are
>>1182591Kyo was always a manlet.
Damn, looks like they finally fixed the old Boss Showdown bug where you could just close the game window in the PC version, then go back in and the boss would be frozen.
>40k rubies spent>4 jacky>zero (0) sarah>virtua set within 1 pity (wasn't even planning to go for that)>both 3pgtime to start saving.
>>1182617Shit sucks. I fell short of every extreme character getting their busted ex skill thus far and now I'm permanently behind on those characters. I struggle in all events because I don't have my character's cheat button.The only fun I have in this game is making people quit when they see john cena on my team online.
Why doesn't this game have co-op anymore?
>>1182623It literatlly only had co-op for one off-shoot event that lasted for two weeks. I don't even remember against who specifically that fight was against.
>>1182617my ape brain went further because I could a5 jacky with 3 more copies but I ended up getting sarah
>>1182643i fucked up
>>1182564>For some reason She was always good for these boss fights even before buffs, now she's on steroids.
john cena is too op
>attempt Boss Showdown level 50 with A7 Jin, A7 Ivy and A4 Taki, literally my strongest fighters>none of them can do more than 5% damage, if even that>disable just that one challenge that's worth 7 points so he's now level 43>my Jin smokes him in 3 secondsJeez. Also I tried level 50 with a team of Jacky, Pai-chan and my own Akira, all A1, and they did close to 30% damage each. Not nearly enough to win because of the 20% heal between rounds, but like five times better than maxed out characters from the past two collabs. Talk about power creep.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuzMAvUS5WkMai kills Akira's AI for some reason
>>1182874You can probably go all the way up to 49. For some reason Akira gets a crazy defense buff when he reaches level 50. My Iori goes from killing him in a few hits to not being able to do shit. I just want one copy of Samus and I'm gone with this collab.
I have no idea why I can't do any damage to the low poly akira. I managed to do 40 on the other one.
>>1183199Learn how to read. The game tells you why.
So what's the tier list on the VF5 fighters looking like? Pai Chan has been a great help letting me cheese stuff with her starlight DoT even unawakened.
>>1182872I have literally been terrorizing people too. You can't see him
Pai chan's specials are so fucking trash.
Lol, yeah, free A7 Ivy disintegrated lvl49 VF5 Akira in 30 seconds, but only cleared 5% HP from lvl50.
>>1183293I think he is bugged and kyo can disable his defense bullshit easily.
>>1183300Yeah, since low poly Akira is also lv. 50, it's probably a bug that accidentally applies his buffs to the regular Akira
Well this finally happened for me.
>>1183521Congrats anon, what level is your Jackie?
>>1183587>Congrats anonAre you the same guy from the bbs thread?
>>1183602bbs thread? No, I don't think so
Blocky Rugal and Kim have their own "Polygon" imprint stones series that hints on more similar blocky characters release in the future.
>>1184002well as long as they're free idgaf. i hope they dont except me to pay for that lame shit by making them banner chars. lmao. i miss the seasonal chars like New Years Vice, Wonderland Athena and Halloween Heidern. This blocky shit is gonna do it for me.
>>1184052*isn't gonna do it for me.
>>1183587I have him at A4. I was mostly rolling for Sarah but apparently the gacha gods really wanted me to have Jacky. I could actually A5 him right now, I have an extra memory and a selector sitting in my inventory, but I figure I'll just keep rolling as I get more rubies. If I roll him one more time I can use the selector for Sarah.Even like this he's already doing a lot more damage on Guild Raid and Guild Boss Challenge than both my A7 D.Jin and Ivy, despite his CP being way lower than theirs.>>1184002That's not really indicative of anything, they've done a ton of stones with very limited use. The low poly aesthetic is mostly a VF meme, I wouldn't expect them to add more characters like that outside of this collab.
every day not having a single a4 makes me hate this game
>find opponent>they have a wwe fighter on their team too>first round is wwe vs wwe with me using John>it's a close fight and i end up ko-ing their first fighter>opponent disconnectsHeh. Nothin personnel kid.
>>1184975Cena is pretty damn fun in Dream Match
>>1185085>>1184975It's true, cena has a well rounded moveset
Shun'ei carried my ass in Dream Match this event. His 1 and 2 being continous projectiles really helps with trapping the opponent.
>>1186540I meme on people with elizabeth and hit and run tacticsbasically like a second orochi
I have been using kusanagi to cheese reviving hell dungeon for weeks, what a bypass character
How do I use retro akira
So, second banner is better than the first one?
>>1188390He seems to be more of a support unit. >>1188645Looks like is even, both Jackie and Pai-chan are great supports while Akira and Sarah are DPS monsters. Although Akira needs A5 to shine while Sarah can wreck shit at A3Anyways, another guide for Poly Sarahhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmhwqbddHvU
>>1189069I hate myself for not boosting that ivy up. She's even fucking raping shit with 0 cards and a few cores in story mode and side content I have nothing else for
>krizalid's levelgood god
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvbbxrcbc2wA5 Poly Rugal is fucking stupid>>1190083What level?
>>1190337I was about to say that guy must have had crazy luck to A5 Poly Rugal on the limited banner, but then I looked at the shop. You can buy so many tokens you're basically buying memories directly.
>>1190775Yeah, maxing out Rugal, Sarah and Kim is only for Whales
Polygon Akira is such a trash unit, even at A7.Seems like they've looked back at Cat Ivy being so broken, while also easy to obtain to, that they've made this event's free character completely useless.
>>1190853He is a support unit, you want him just to apply his buffs and then tag him out. He can considerably raise the damage output of VF units
>>1190870Not only that but he is fucking neigh unkillable paired with 15 rugal
I just fought some sort of nigh-invincible Shun'ei on League. He kept going straight from his shield to damage immunity back to shield and so on with no window in between for me to damage him. I fought him for a solid two minutes until one of my hits finally dealt damage and he dropped. Very odd, never experienced this before. Wish I had been recording but I only managed to snag a screenshot in a panic.
What's the easiest character to a5-7 right now? I'm pretty much walled off till I get someone for some modes
>>1192238Any of them, you get the materials to upgrade them to A6-7 from dispatch and you need 25 dispatches per character to get the 1000 shards needed for the Prime Memory. Although your can cut 10 of them if you get lucky and get 400 shards from dispatch. Currently Akira at A7 has the highest damage in the game while an A3 Sarah is doing as much damage as Mai or Kula at A7.
>>1192238Poly Akira would be the easiest if you diligently got all his coins every day since the start of collab. Any of the EX chars from the start are easier, because you don't need to get 3 additional memories to change up them to EX at A5.
So what free characters will I be able to obtain assuming I start around 4pm tomorrow, i was only able to login once and do a few dailies the day the collab started since I broke my phone shortly after while waking. But my new phone is arriving tomorrow.
>>1192419Start as in brand new account? Poly Akira, maybe poly Sarah/Rugal/Kim if you're lucky with their drops from Sarah coins gacha. All non-poly collab chars are only available from ruby banners. We also got some free x10 pulls and Sarah coins in the mail during collab, dunno if you got them too.>>1178393Don't forget the code for free tickets, too.
>>1192421Rank 317 with a couple missed collabs and multiple missed bs ss and ex characters so no good bs ss and ex cards just permanent banner shit.
Who is the best out of three blocky characters to use all my selectors on? Rugal?
best halloween char?Just realized I have literally 10 boxes for tickets to them all
>>1193126Halloween Chris + Halloween Alice are a must for gold farming. Halloween Xiangfei was the only support poison dealer for a while which was needed for some modes, but if you have XV Angel, then she's not needed.Otherwise just pick whoever you want. They're all great, because they have their own unique animations for some actions + intro/outro, Blue Mary for example has all different specials, comparing to all other her versions. Back then netmarble actually invested in these alternate characters.
>>1193130Alright, thanks. I will invest in their futures greatly and even Xiangfei because I like playing her in 2k2um
poly rugal to a4, or poly sarah and poly kim both to a3?
>>1193520Rugal to A4, if you can get him to A5 he can use the self destruct to trivialize Guild Raids and Team Relays
>>1193535o shit, good advice
>>1192211Yeah, I'm not sure if it's a card set interaction or what, but Shun has a tendency to just bounce between shield and invul. It makes him a pain in the ass in League and Arena, to the point where you can lose because his defenses outlasted your barrage or even time out without finishing him off.
>>1193556Thank God I have Sarah so I can kick his face all day.
the polygon summon has such a shitty event tied to it
>>1193835The problem is that is running at the same time as the lucky chance one, it should've been just the Poly summon so we would've gotten more pulls in it
In case you guys want to cheese Poly Akirahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VggHYsCxxZo
>>1194208I don't even have sarah because shitty rng has determined I will be raising both akiras to a5
>>1194208Oh lawd, it worked. In fact it works on regular Akira too, just took a few tries. This mode might just be cursed.
It seems like anyone who has shit that doesn't knockdown is good for this
>>1194208Noice, two ezpz clears
Got lucky and managed to A5 Pai Chan with almost zero rubies. I think I'll take a long break. Get those come back rewards. Hopefully you can repeat the come back event.
>>1194543This game really does encouraging fucking off for months at a time
>>1194551I stopped playing in the middle of the collab without finishing those new player missions (the new one). If I come back later can I still continue the new player one or will i only be able to do comeback mission?
If you guys are still struggling to get high scores against Poly Sarah, using her as support helps a lot. She increases the damage enemy receive when tagging out
I don't get why they gate the rubies so high up in this when only the whales with the optimal set of characters from the past 3 rate ups can reach it. The 1k rubies literally don't matter to them.Meanwhile they keep clogging milestones with useless shit like awekening EXP capsules and more than 1 copy of Kim's special. Really dumb.
>>1194854The Badge pieces should not be in here. Even more useless.
>>1194854I don't even have half this score since I have been on comeback status and omega rugal does shit for damage to these fights
Ruby login and new banner coming in two weeks.https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/81760
>>1195592I think I'll come back (even though it's only been a couple weeks). But this time I won't be a meta slave and will instead choose to summon only for the characters I like. And I'll do the story mode like I did when I first played the game, because it was fun.
>>1195592Probably summer rerun or something.
I hope the next collab is baki.There's a very good chance if the next collab starts late July August or September
>>1195735I can already imagine baki pickle retsu jack and maybe katsumi.
If you end the current TA stage with EX Leona while limitless is activated, she looks like she has a light tan. Very sexo.
>>1195660I wonder if they really will introduce a new rarity
>>1190790Hey, sometimes you're just blessed.I got Rugal to A3 yesterday on a lucky single roll and then realized I had two selectors for that banner that I hadn't used yet, plus my generic EX memory from a while back that I was saving for just such a moment (like I said right here >>1169245), which just happened to be yellow. Today I got the generic memory from this event and amazingly it also happened to be yellow (I could have converted one of them if I had to, but not both). So I just went for it, really doubt I'd ever have a better opportunity to use these memories. F2P A5 Rugal it is.
>>1195779I would love to see Oliva in game but he isn't relevant during the pickle arc and the best time to have a baki collab is during the new season.
Do I throw more rubies to raise sarah from a3? Don't know if I should use selectors to bring up jackie to 3 or sarah to 4.
>>1196490Sarah is better
>>1196496I want jacky but I ended up with a5 retro akira and a4 akira instead. Both of which do jack shit for damage to boss retro akira. I do more damage cheesing his ass with sarah because with anyone else he fucking bursts and fills his meter up after 2 hits
Ended up with A7 VF1 AkiraA3 Pai-chanA3 Poly RugalA2 SarahA1 VF1 SarahA1 Poly KimAll have their specials, like a couple of each collab special card and 1 full banner set and 2 full sets from the rush dungeon.No Jackie and Akira.I'm good with A3 Pai-chan and A3 Rugal. S1 spam with Pai-chan is really retarded and melts everything.
EX Vol 11 next week
>>1196632Pls, no Nameless or any of the hot girls.
>>1196632I'd like to save up more rubies, so I hope it isn't anything I want
Best collab haul I've ever had or will ever have, probably. Before this Devil Jin was the only non-free EX fighter I had ever managed to A5. Suppose I've used up most of my luck for the remainder of this game's run.
>>1196647That is a really good haul, congrats
>>1196647Mine was about half of that but fuck I am happy with what I got considering how fucking weak I was. Bummed about not getting jacky because that's who I play in vf but I'm happy because it happened. Now if only they could show up in a real kof game...
>27k on akira banner and cards>63k on jacky banner and cards>a1, akira, pai, sarah, rugal, kim, poly sarah>a3 poly akira, a5 jackyGetting jacky to a5 was a mistake, should have just stopped after 1 pity. Way too many rubies for a unit that's kind of annoying to use because he loves to whiff his basic atks and doesn't have enough hyper armor and shield. All in all, this celebration caused me to make a lot of mistakes, but I'll stop being a meta whore now.
>>1196636Does Goeniko count as a hot girl?
>>1196717Goeniko is shit, but this silhouette actually looks like Shermie cosplaying Gonuds.
And the usual post-collab survey is up go tell NM how badly the screwed the pooch with the Poly Sarah and Poly Kim events. https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/81736And you can also guess the silhouette for a chance to get summon ticketshttps://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/81728
>>1196717Looks like they decided to make their own Lady Goenitz design and go for a more adult sexy route than the old Goeniko. I approve. Not that I'll have rubies to roll for her, aside from the temp ones.>>1196797I told them to go back to having six unique fighters in collabs like they used to instead of the more recent format of four characters + two dupes in alt costumes.Interistingly they didn't ask for specific IP collab suggestions this time, just what kind of media it should come from. I picked anime/comics since they've kind of already run through most of the relevant FG franchises.
>>1196944I'm worried because the silhouette looks way too much like Orochi Shermie.
>>1196717>Lady Goenitz/GoenikoHow busted will she be?
>>1196944Only MK left out of relevant FGs. And they said that they want to do it, but WB is being hard to strike a bargain with.
>>1197093They should do power rangers instead
polygon rugal really does just let me auto pilot every single guild raid. What a great investment of resources
>>1197233https://youtu.be/LD63qvIGggkHe also turns Master Rugal Time attack into easy mode
>>1197772Yes, when he is allowed anyways
>>1198284>ZR>tight skirt>deep cleavage>long ponytail>smugMUH
>>1198284Why did they censor her?
>>1198367Why not just give her the censored outfit on cn version and the uncensored one on the rest? That's what they did with that vf5 loading screen right
Do strikers count against team count in epic quest for their cost?
>>1198393Probably because China would bitch and moan.
>>1198406Is been a while but I think they don't count
>>1198468They should just operate like AL does and let chinks mod the game for the uncensored version if they wish to. >>1198325>>1198284Also I wish she had the nun cap thingy, but she's still hot. Meanwhile forumfags are throwing a tantrum over the design and just wanted the Mugen shit ported over. Buncha retards.
holy shit female gonetiz. wait, are ex awkenings still locked behind dupes?
>>1198562Yes but now you can get a generic EX Memory with each banner
>>1198574what does this mean? iirc it was 8 total for awaken 5. Does this become cheaper or what
>>1198595That now there are generic materials that can be used instead of dupes to level up a character, like the BS/SS generic memories from Guild Raid
>>1198595First pull - character unlockA1: 1 dupeA2: 1 dupeA3: 1 dupeA4: 2 dupesA5: 2 dupesAfter that it's different for non-EX and EXNon-EX need to get change up kit that costs 3 dupes to become EX.EX out of the box don't need any change ups.A6: 1 Prime memoryA7: 1 Prime memoryPrime memory only can be crafted from the character shards that you farm with dispatch missions, no need for dupes.
I guess she's blue?
>>1198519If not i so am going to have a much easier time because some of these are just arbitrarily walled the fuck off with the 45 characters that aren't allowed to do damage even with 450000 power level
>>1198325Seems like she changes into red with all different specials only after A5, like XV Leona, Taki and Mi-na.
>third female banner in a row (not counting collab)Yep, this game has gone full on coomer mode.
>>1198953That's because whenever it's an all dude banner they fail to rake in the cash if it's not Rugal or Iori.
>>1199068a BS K' would probably do pretty well
>>1199076>>1199068Nameless also gets a ton of money
>>1199076K' already got an SS and that shit was a flop, you didn't see a single soul with him on arenas even right as his banner was new. >>1199142Yeah, also Nameless.
>>1198953Because those cowards are afraid to touch maximum impact or world heroes
>>1198953Chizuru is the least coomer female in all of KOF, though. They legitimately just want to complete the Sacred Treasures.
>>1199201I respect chizuru as a choice but the female goenitz was what turned it into a coomer banner for me. If it was the real one I would have been very satisfied and would have summoned. It could even have been orochi if that wanted to save goenitz for when he drops in kof xv.
Lol, kofas unironically bricked my phone yesterday. Just got dark the instant I've done my dailies. Couldn't even boot it into recovery mode. Only got fixed after reballing cpu. Now I'm afraid to launch the game on it again.
>>1199395Did your phone get too hot or something?
>>1199399Probably. Kofas is the only intensive game on my phone. Now I'm looking for the new phone and still don't know what to pick.
>>1199401Whatever you get and if you decide to keep playing on your current phone, might be a good idea to get some kind of mini fan to help keep it cool.
>>1199144Wasn't SS K' kind of shit though?
>>1199532SS Iori was shit right of the bat yet people still rolled and you saw him everywhere in arena back then The point here is people roll only for the certain popular males, if you want to go the "but his skills are shit so that's why no one rolled" then that's an entire different conversation At the end of the day it's just easier to make girl only banners since waifufags/coomers will roll even if they're shit if they look nice enough like SS King or Halloween Alice (before the buff)
>>1198953I for one am really enjoying polygon kim and rugal.. Especially kim's new move. That shit has saved my bacon in epic quest with other kim's a million times.
Weird, all the VF trailers got privated
Who are the best lost cost characters(=>45) for epic quest stuff and why
>>1200177Christmas Choi because he is the only low cost unit with DoT, thus reducing the amount of time needed to take down enemies.Envy Mary and Wrath Rugal are also decent picks because they have access at their character specific cards and finishers. Rugal could potentially be the best now thanks to the self destruct finisher
>>1200185I see, choi does seem really good compared to the rest
>still have two vouchers left over for female fighter and 15 athena unuseddunno if I want to get the drunkard or athena when server comes back up
this patch is kinda fucked
>>1200437More bullshit events like s*rah dungeon?
Good luck anons
>1.5 GB in-game update
wtf is this
Goemilf on the first pull and XV Chizuru on the second and third pulls.
>>1200453Congrats anon. I myself got lady goenitz with the last of my temporary rubies, which was okay I guess. I'm saving so getting one of the units without spending my real rubies is a cool bonus.
>>1200452some shit that has softlocked my game 2 times now
What card set works good on Duo Lon (2003)
>>1200562the Rugal set
>>1200712fuck I guess he ain't getting any better then except as a stallbot in tower
Lady Chin or XV Athena?
>>1200774Athena. She works like a great a support without being awakened while Chin needs to be A3 or ideally, A5 to really be more than just a beat stick
>>1200784I have both. Athena is a2. chin is a1. 2 memories potentially of both since unopened box that lets you pick
>>1201465In that case get Chin to A3
>>1201465I wouldn't waste the generic EX memories in any of the two If I were you. Athena works without awakenings and Chin already got powercrept in damage and needs A5 if you want her to actually be good (but if actually you like her then just do it).
>>1201465>>1201622Oh yeah, I had a brainfart and thought you meant selectors of them, that another anon is right, don't use your generics on them is better to either stock them for a future unit of your favorite character or for a collab
>>1201622>>1201681>>1201620Not generics. These are literally selectors between those two. Chin is powercrept but fuck if I don't need his stacheless form for reviving hell
>>1201620ok will do this, they seem useful in some cases. Especially since they have that retarded fear ability
We should probably bake a new thread.
