>>54642
Basically, get lucky and roll good shit that is ahead of the meta, and use that solid team to earn the event units, which you hope to god are also ahead of the meta. There are units that are worth your time, and everything else is trash that enemies will cut through like a hot knife through butter.
>>
>>54642
It depends. There are strong units that are extremely cheap. If you can field them early, you can win matches immediately before the enemy can even counter. But upgrading the base sooner will potentially win you long, drawn out rounds, if you and your opponent are evenly matched.

If new join into an active guild beneficial for weekly event, crucial for certain event like "Tryline" the event that spawns the most game breaking free units. Do daily task. Go for old units that can be strengthened. Pray to RNG gods for SR exepert units. Luck is the key for this game unless you want to go full whale. Skip online if you dont have meta units. Go for a playstyle right now its go rush or go home. Go for faction build only if enough strong units mixed is fine. Lastly prepare for weekly meta shift due to devs inability to make new balance units. Heres my waifu thats obsolete now

I got recruited when i was playing United Front event where you play with other users to beat an AI I was low level then but we won 5 straight matches together with this guy messaged him saying Gg said he was impressed because matching with some random player usually ends in defeat. Just be patient cause a good guild means more experts to hire and sure platinum unit in Tryline event.

If you are referring to the medal crank version of Bloom and Arsinoe then yes, for beginners at least. The real good ones on medal crank are Teresa, Naomi, Alma, Guardian, Minerva and Bersek. But by Jove don't waste any medal on medal crank, be patient because there are many ways to get free medal crank keys. If you're wondering if an unit is good or not, you can check their ranking to see how they fare in meta.

Stamina for missions are limited but pvp(Online) is unlimited but very brutal in new dominated by whales and old players while as pvp(Metal Arena) is time limited opens only a few times a day, its more forgiving for new players since it matches you with people in the same league(Wins not level). Online is used to raise rank and farm medals 300 a day, while Metal Arena is the monthly tournament and gives you a monthly acording to your league.

You're literally being told that she's Ptolemaios daughter from another timeline.
It made the PM story ultra messy as a consequence, the terrible translation did not help in understanding her past and motive, from what I understood she's a battered daughter yearning for the love of her father so she jumped timeline until she found one where Ptolemaios would be willing to love her.
Interestingly enough, you have a similar theme with First Baby and Amadeus.

All those opener units are obsolete since that prasyte unit it dominated for months. Nothing major has changed they added a new EO mission which some said an exact format from other game. They added 5 Ultimate Weapons 50m hp (platinum frame) units tied to each fractions and give specific boost if its a pure faction deck. Also they added "Strengthening items" to selected units some gimmicky units and some super old units, items such as stun resists, hp boost also damage boost this is to make older units relevant example the unit Marco prior to such items even the new players dont touch them due to it being one of the original units with the lowest hp now they are somhow useful in other events.
>>
>>107801
>>108606
10taro is still somewhat meta, the ability to spawn directly in front of your base is broken, it get even better if he manage to dodge an attack or two.

As for the Ultimate Boss, I got the short stick since I'm a Rebel main and the PJK is easily the weakest of them.

How much sorties I need to plat Try line boss (with only free experts)?
>>
>>108800
A fucking lot.
If you're only using free expert, I think you'll need something like 15k sorties, possibly more.
The most efficient way to farm coin in TL is to use everything you have during Immortal boss because it give 30% more coin, but that's a surefire way to get kicked from any decent guild.
>>
>>108901
Wew i didnt know about that additional bonus thanks for that info ive played for two years now hahah im such a noob. im one of the active ones in my guild and we always complete tryline but as for immortal boss my guild doesn't seem to care about it takes us 2 to 3 days to complete everybody is just chill. Dont know why its one of the top.
>>
>>109211
It's one of the oldest active guild around because of how the guild system work:
Guilds are ranked depending on how much guild points they have and those are earned each time a guild member spend sorties, meaning that old guild have an advantage here.
I remember a whale guild trying to start from scratch ("The Ones" for anyone curious) but once they understood how the system was, they quickly disbanded the guild.
Also those guild points are used for opening guild raid, which can decrease your ranking: it's the reason why all guild that care about their rank enforce a strict rule about not attacking the raid until the last day.
Also there's no reason to try hard anymore since Snatch War is dead. As a consequence, most ranked guild will let almost anyone in as long as they play regulary.

Join an unranked, active guild that doesn't care about rank if you want to farm guild coin.
However, since the game is dying, it is unlikely that they will do well in guild events like Try Line so just stick to a good guild. It's not like the guild shop had anything good to buy and you'll earn enough through events if you just want to plat your waifu.

>>110732
I love my wives!
But I wouldn't call any of them bullied, Nova was extremely jaded on top of being isolated and regarded as a tool while Vita has PTSD, survivor guilt and severe damage to her brain, possibly explaining her sometime strange behavior and her inability to recognize Nova as someone who look exactly like herself before she became a cyborg.

MSA update out:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OH7aOkMvGKw
Pile Impact Ver.Unison, a new mech piloted by both Amber and Molly. High evasion (69%) melee unit and can delete projectile whenever she evade. Can also stun as a bonus over a rather wide area. However it should be noted that most of their attacks do not deal damage to the base. Is weak to stun but Elysion (and Real Golden Hunter Walker to an extent) is the only meta stunner atm.
Special Growl
Type: Ant-Lion (pic related): Amadeus latest creation and the first android/gynoid OC (super AI like White Baby and embedded AI like Alice are not proper android/gynoid) with a shape-shifting ability. Gameplay-wise she (it?) is loaded with invincibility frames and has evasion on top of having a barrier against fire and explosive attacks.

MSA having a story centered on war its surprisingly doesn't kill any featured characters Red was supposedly the first only to be brought back only nameless soldiers and monsters gets killed. I wish they made the MSA world in a different planet an never ending war between five factions seems to small to be put in a setting as small as this earth.
>>
>>123382
Killing a character for the sake of it when the story is character-driven is a very bad thing to do, especially when most are supposed to be important but barely have any development.
There's also the fact people don't want to see their favorite characters/waifu dying or getting replaced, see Soul Calibur V.
>Red Jobber
He, and all of his allies, is supposed to die in the future hence why his children go back in time and it still wasn't enough because Mira did the same.
In fact, most of the PM army is going to die for not worshipping Ptolemaios in the future.
As for the other faction, Abigail also got seriously injured and the Professor who actually died, he came back but the current Professor is soulless because his soul got reincarnated.
>>
>>124004
>current Professor is soulless because his soul got reincarnated
For real? Is this canon?
>>
>>124330
Like many things in MSA, they don't say it directly because they want to give themselves so leeway in case they want to retcon something but based on what we know atm, yes.
>Abigail assassinate the Professor because he tried to assassinate her first
>Prof die, emergency protocols activate in order to transfer his mind to another body
>except all the spare body are not totally ready yet, so the system just transfer his mind to all clones with relative success
>as a consequence, some of his clones go on a rampage around the world (see Golden Gigantalos event)

So you have the possibly soulless Prof Aionion who's the current "leader" of the Mars faction, some Prof clones wandering around (they never aborded the subject again so it is unknown if that's still the case) and a baby that is possibly the reincarnation of the Professor that is never mentioned again.

The translation in general is bad and some events are barely intelligible because of it.
The AS mode is missing a lot of stuff because they gave up on making more lore.
The summer stories in AS are generally fun to read.
You can also read the stories of my wives Nova and Vita in Independant chapter 3 (technically Cleopatra's story), SP "A Christmas Miracle" and "Everlasting Summer Returns"
Alice/White Baby's story (Cyberbrain Friend) is good too.

>>133993
It is, out of all of the original characters, only Marco, Tarma and Allen get any screentime, Fio and Eri are basically irrelevant, Trevor only appear for comedic relief, Nadia may as well not exist and Morden barely makes any appearance after going insane.
I think they are not allowed to develop the OG characters (with the exception of Marco and Tarma) hence the focus on the OC.

First form: staller because evasion, barrier against fire and explosive attacks and a lot of invincibility frames.
It also mean that Nadia hardcounter her unless you get real lucky.
Second form: her special can't damage the base so you will use her to destroy the backline. Not as good for stalling.

>>136094
Do events and reach level 50.
Do not use medals to buy MSP, it's a fucking waste.
Ignore the ultimate bosses for now, they cost a fuckton of MSP to level up and upgrade, I have the PJK at 3 stars and I still needed 1.5~ billions MSP.
Only level up units you're going to use (and your waifu), ignore the rest.

>At the very least to give expert on current EO
Don't do that, getting an unit just for the sake of an event is a waste of medals.
Only use medals for an unit that makes you pp hard or one that you actually plan on using.

Were Invaders always a coalition of multiple alien species or are we really supposed to believe all the new humanoid Invaders are still related to the frog looking ones?
>>
>>137130
Implied to be both:
they have a species dedicated to recon/scouting and have shapeshifting capabilities and higher intelligence as a consequence. Odette, Anette, Nowan, etc are all from that species, the only reason they always look human is because they fell in love with human culture or in Nowan's case, because it was a gift.
Then you have aliens like Fedeln who literally was a random alien they picked up because of his destructive capabilities.
Schwarz's design also imply that it's a parasite currently using the body of a female humanoid.
No explanation was given as for why the other Invaders are humanoid.

I had thought that Nowan was different from the others since he's a full shapeshifter.
The goo invaders have this weird thing going for them where it feels like they're constantly giving birth to one another. That's what the flavor text seems to imply, anyway.
Personally, I have a theory that all of the goo invaders are derived from Schwarz, since she's the gooeyest.

Well, there's no way to know since MSA is always vague with these things.

Also, she's the only humanoid character who has any connection to the regular invaders.
At first I wondered why she has an elastic arm, but then I remembered that the regular invaders can do that arm stretch headbutt move, and everything made sense.
If they come out with another version of her, I'd love to see her either with wings or piloting one of those fishbowl ships the regular invaders have. You know, like Dragunov where she has a flying and ground mode.

I like her too, just not as much as Nova.
Doesn't help that most of her character development is done through either Nova or Navy.
Also Nova is supposed to look exactly like Vita before she fell into an ambush.
>>
>>138093
>it's technically still Vita
Yes and no, Nova is the same as Vita on a genetical level but she has her own consciousness.
Future Vita "only" force Nova to obey orders (and Nova used to hate her for it) and there's also the fact that her memory got deleted which is the reason why Nova take pity on Vita and lose the hatred she had towards her once she actually meet her in the past.

>Second, they're likely into amputees
While it is clear that Future Vita is a quadruple amputee, it is only implied through her design for Nova (but still very likely).

I'd like to see Yoshino, Destrade, Owen and/or Dragunov as bosses, and both Abigail and Beatriz at some point.

Nova and Vita but only as playable characters.
Them being bosses/enemies would destroy my heart considering their animations when they are defeated.
>>
>>138319
>>138345
Clicked on the submit button too early.
Realistically, only the most popular characters would make it so basically:

Alice, maybe Midori considering how much screentime she has.
>Rebel
Abigail and Beatriz for sure, maybe my wives Nova and Vita if I'm lucky.
>PM
Dragunov, Yoshino, Caroline, possibly Matilda and Mira.
>Alien
Dunno? Professor because he's popular in Japan?
>Independant
The Amadeus sisters, Cleopatra and her followers. I'm personally hoping for the vampire but they are not that popular.

They'll probably add some male OC, regardless of their populairty, for parity's sake so you can expect Owen and Dion.

Personally, I don't like Abigail that much, but it would make the most sense if we saw her. A fight with Vita and Navy would make a lot of sense, too. Some of the members of the Allen Platoon would also work. You know, they could just build levels around each of the different brigades in the rebel army.
Of course, I'd like to see guys from some of the other factions a lot more, but there's no way we're getting any Amadeus, Ptolemaic, or Invader guys. Especially we're not getting any Red Goblin guys. I have a feeling that they'll stick to Rebels and Mars People. Maybe we'll get some mummies, but I'm not sure.

RIP, she's not really popular and kind of irrelevant story-wise. Her entire characterization is 'she's someone with a dark past that made her edgy".
Even Ami/Perche/Ulala are more relevant.

>but I have more hope for seeing bad guys than seeing good guys.
A way to solve this would be to make the other factions playable.

>red jobber
The entire Reb Goblin/PM plot need to be rewritten because it's a mess, you have various characters saying how they want to bring down Ptolemaios but did nothing for 1+year and even helped him.
It was bad to the point where my wife Nova, a character not involved with the PM plot, was the only character we actually see fighting those loyal to the old grandpa for a long time.

>I have a feeling that they'll stick to Rebels and Mars People.
They'll probably play it safe indeed and I fully expect to be disappointed by the absence of any MSA character.

You're supposed to keep your medals until there's an unit you really, really want.
You can use them when they do rerun to get multiple recent SR units at once but the powercreep being what it is, you'll never know if those units are going to be powercrept the next update.
Well, right know I would advise you to keep your medals until christmas/new year unless they release a meta-breaking unit or a super sexy waifu (both criteria are not mutually exclusive, see Aqua HMT).

When there's only one or two units on the screen, it can come down to timing.
Timing matters less when there's, like, a billion units out, which, admittedly, doesn't happen too much in the current meta.
>>
>>147766
>Is the gameplay in anyway skill-dependent?
Depend on the meta, sometimes you know you lost just by looking at the enemy team.
Sometimes, you can cheese an opponent and beat him early.
"Skill" is only present in the deck building part and the early game, after that you just send what you can and spam the attack button.
And yes, the game is dying, the only reasons to play it are:
>sunk time/cost
The game is grindy and people are leaving because they don't want to grind anymore.
>people who like MS
I like what they did with the MS lore but I know a lot of people get absolutely triggered by the OCs
>waifu
I'm a waifufag myself and I'll have to admit there's just much better if you look at the competition.
I mean, there's no VA and barely any character development/story and when it happen you have to wait years for it, most characters will appear twice at most and promptly forgotten.

Its not as bad as you think, even if you use emulators without exploiting glitches with a weak deck I'd be still be useless its basically putting your matches at Auto leaving it to the stupid AI to win. Those guys are just simply no lifes who are too lazy to click next match. Just think about them as vain glorious waifu collectors. Id rather be where i am, knowing that if those guys didn't farm would simply lose to me. This game is a no skill game, its simply a waifu collecting game, its hard work/grind that some people like, you can simply play with every character in the laboratory and win and thats the basically the feeling of those at the top.

MSA update out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq9Ja8KfsL0
Emma ST (see >>154204): got massively improved compared to her previous iteration, her machine block some projectiles and she can only be damaged if you attack her directly. Also has a new mechanic/skill that allow her to increase the damage dealt by her critical. Seems like she was made to counter evasion-based unit. It is important to note that her specials attacks can't damage the enemy base (but her normal attack can). Overall, pretty good for Rebel deck.
Special Alesha (pic related), not sure why she even exist when the original is still meta and better. Didn't test her for long so maybe I missed something.
Lithos, pusher/melee glass cannon. Very strong but is also very easy easy to destroy despite having 1+million HP at plat and being able to reduce the attack power of the units she hit.
Special LLB, will probably be as mediocre as her previous iteration, nothing much to say.
Pics of the new units here: https://twitter.com/SoarinSkys/status/1309028253294882816

SNK also announced they were dropping support of 32 bit devices in the near future and considering the playerbase of MSA, this is big news.
They also announced they were banning the usage of macro for people who played on emulators, giving players yet another incentive to leave.
And still no new AS.

No, because they really don't give a fuck in the end and something on that scale can only be done by reinstalling the OS completely.
However, nothing stop you from installing the 64 bit version of android yourself, just backup your data first. Never did it myself but I know it's possible so you may want to ask someone more knowledgeable about this.

New player there. What should I get as my free newbie unit and what should I focus doing?
>>
>>159075
>What should I get as my free newbie unit
What are the choices?
Pick someone with team-wide buffs like Immortal Allen because by the time you finally reach lvl50, the unit will be powercrept.
In fact, I'm pretty sure all of the units you can choose from are already powercrept.
>what should I focus doing?
Leveling up, farming events and keeping your medals (unless you're planning to whale).
Only level up units you're going to use and ignore ultimate boss for now since they cost a fuckton of MSP to upgrade and you can't afford it as a newbie.
>>
>>159155
Sorry for late reply, went to eat and do home things. I can choose between:

OneMan Army Ralf
MS-Alice.Ghost
Inmortal Allen
Abigail (Subjugation Tactics)
Beecham
Josette
Bloom
Mars Gigantalos
Hathol
Runaway White Baby

I cant see their skills or what they do, so thats why I asked. Sorry if its a bother.
>>
>>159277
Immortal Allen for Rebel HP/Attack buffs or Bloom for Aliens HP(?) buff.
Allen is probably the best choice since he gives 2 buffs for all Rebel units vs only one buff for Bloom.
Everyone else is powercrept
>>
How do you guys stockpile so much sorties?
>>
>>159591
Treasure Hunt as often as possible, sending Good Job to your fellow guild members every day and skipping shit events (but you can try getting the boss to silver even if it's shit for the 10% expert bonus for the next event).
>>
>>160170
I did all of that but never managed to rake up more than 10k of sorties. Should I buy sorties more than once per day?
>>
>>160228
>I did all of that but never managed to rake up more than 10k of sorties.
It's literally all you can do if you're f2p.
You can skip the current event for example if you're not a PF main, just earn enough to buy the daily medals and ignore the boss because grinding 40k coins is still a sizeable amount of sorties spent and 10% expert bonus, while nice if you actually plan on getting the next boss to plat, can be ignored if you're also planning on skipping the next event.
Next event has Clone Trevor and Rugname who are both good for Aliens players btw.
>Should I buy sorties more than once per day?
You shouldn't buy sorties at all unless you plan on spending real money.
>>
>>160255
I'm content with my current PF deck. Actually, I'm struggling to decide whether to spend all my sorties on next TF or Recap, what were they thinking with three sortie heavy events in a row?
>>
>>160334
>I'm content with my current PF deck.
Try to focus one making one good deck for PvP/Metal Arena. I forgot those were sources of medals too.
Trying to make a good deck for every faction is extremely difficult for a f2p player.
>what were they thinking with three sortie heavy events in a row?
To make you spend medals on sorties, they know exactly what they were doing when they did this.

I just saw this on YouTube. According to the video by this guy named Banden, he said SNK is discontinuing support for 32-bit mobile devices because of Android emulators like Nox and BlueStacks. The emulators have a feature called a micro or macro clicker and allows players to record their clicks on the Android emulators. So some players have taken advantage of that hack and use it to win hundreds of medals a day in the Online Battle feature. They also changed the amount of medals new beginners get when they start the game to prevent old players from returning. So yeah, blame the hackers for what's happening.

I'm probably going to buy a 64-bit smartphone since the current mobile device I have is kind of busted anyways from getting dropped onto the floor too often. I might have to put those manga purchases on hold then.
>>
>>167087
I knew that, they literally sent a notice in-game about how macro/bots were now considered cheating but most people skipped it.
I'm just saying that the 32 bit support was something they would have stopped in august 2021 no matter what because of google, SNK was just killing two birds with one stone when they made that decision.

MSA update out:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tq8oHX7hlg
Katalina (pic related), Rebel scientist under the direct order of Abigail, long range stunner albeit a bit slow. Mediocre normal attacks but good special. Tend to get a little too close for her own good considering her range.
Halloween Jane Doe, like her OG iteration but lower cost and more importantly she CANNOT stall anymore so she's not good. Cute though.
Silent Soldier Leona as seen in >>309767718 and >>309779443 Has a new abilities that allow her attacks to deal damage based on the enemy's max HP (with a limit cap of 100k). Also has evasion and attack on evasion and is fully invincible during those. Not immune to stun however.
Halloween Victoria, like Victoria but more focused on, support since she drop heal/reload/attack buff items and can stun. Rather cheap too so she's potentially good.

No, Summer Alice is better than her Halloween counterpart, Beatriz is too slow and the snowmen she create are free AP.

The 3D game is not from SNK, it's from Tencent (China).
Same thing with MSI, it's from ekkor (Korea).
And while I'm at it, MSA is the only gacha directly developped by SNK, every other gacha with a SNK IP just bought the license from them and whatever happen in those has no bearing on the canon of those series.
>>
>>186285
I think it's ridiculous to think that the game is crutching on a single whale. But how many sorties, let alone medals, did he spend to reach that ceiling?

>>186420
The top whales of the game used to spend at least 10k monthly on MSA and he was the biggest of them all, owning every single unit in plat at max levels with all equips, I'll let you guess how much he spent.
Can't say about now since all the whales in my friend list have left except for one.

>Any reason why he and other whales left?
The competition does everything MSA does better except for pixelart and the gameplay which is, as far as I know, unique to MSA.
The former can be just ripped from the game while the latter is fucked by poor balance.
A lot of players (including Exdeath who wanted to be a Rebel main) would like to make factions team but it's just not possible because the game is centered around PvP, which is the most efficient way to earn medals if you don't want to spend money, and there's no point in making pure factions deck since you can win >50% of your games just with "early build unit (toilet or totem usually)>10taro>Aqua HMT".
They tried making factions decks more relevant with the ultimate bosses, but they are pointless if you lose before being able to send them out and they are extremely unbalanced amongst themselves, with the Perfect Jupiter King being by far the weakest.
MSA is grindy, which is not exactly uncommon amongst gacha but it's a chore in MSA. See the current Task Force event, very easy but still require you to do a lot of clicking even if you can clear all the stages on hell on auto.
Raid exist but it's extremely inefficient, the trunk item can be used but they are limited and cost medals if you want more of them.
Whales also like to show off, which is why they liked Snatch War, which was basically a dick measuring contest that favor P2W players but not without strategy. The event was removed because SNK couldn't deal with the rampant cheating and because it was extremely unpopular with F2P players.
Same thing with Daily Rank event but on a lesser extent, pic related is how you were supposed to play it.
On a side note, it was because of Snatch War that the reddit guild became famous for being filled with cheaters and backstabbers.
Cheating still exist, even if SNK made great efforts on that point, they kinda had to because it literally killed the chinese release of MSA in a month or so.

I'll be brief but I'll also mention the overall lack of story/characterization/character development, meaning that the vast majority of the new characters are basically irrelevant and forgettable, I'm lucky that my waifu is less concerned by that issue but I still feel bad for the others considering there's a lot of potential for the MSA lore.
And as said previously, the competition on that point does not just do things better, they excel at it:
The waifus (or the characters in general, really) are lewder, are voiced (sometimes by famous VA), will have several events actively involving them, will get actual characterization, will get merch if popular enough, etc

I hope some of the characters get used in other games. Literally too cool to just be in a gacha. Classic Metal SLug with 30+ different characters? Metal Slug fighting game?

Depends, most of them just the same unit with upgraded attack moves in order to make them more relevant for the meta. But sometimes, special version of a unit has different role compared to the OG version. Like Victoria, a base sniping backliner, turned into a support unit. Except occasionally the special version is just inferior like S. Growl or H. Jane Doe.

Biene Goldenes, invader bee girl who likes gold. Glass canon and atk buffer for aliens. Must have for aliens main because of the buff alone.
Special Geweih, stats too low to be relevant BUT can possibly be used as a base sniper for rush deck. Need to be tested though.
Mirror Mantis, weird unit based on what I've seen, will need some testing but is probably good.
Special Iron Fortress, mediocre at best but very cute nonetheless. Pic related.
The description for the Golden Big Gate seems ominous, we already knew that the future was shit for everyone but the Regular army and Ptolemaios through my wife's and Elena/Licht backstories and this only add more support to that hypothesis.

Welp, turns out that Regular Shield Soldier is pure cancer since he makes Aqua HMT decks even more viable.
As a Rebel main, there's literally nothing I can do if they send both 10taro and this fucker. Both of the golden units from the upcoming UF, while nice for Rebel mains, will do nothing to counter them.

Unit that can spawn on frontline are fine if they are expensive to deploy, see PJK who's still weak as fuck in spite of that.
10taro is an issue because he's cheap as fuck and is still relevant to the meta despite being over a year old. There isn't a single unit that stayed meta for that long .
And the only things they tried to counter him also synergize well with him so instead of countering him, they only fortify his position in the meta.

That’s so retarded. It’s really stupid how insanely long it takes to make Ultimate unit actually viable. What makes it worse is that most of them are already power crept. My Invader King can’t get past the mass amount t do frontline stall cancer.

Avatar of Evil is the only viable Ultimate because jamming is stupid broken and he doesn’t get cuck by one cancer evader

Save up money and then you can buy a new phone. BLU phones are cheap, I think you can buy a smartphone that supports the 64 bit architecture for a hundred or two hundred dollars. Only problem is that BLU probably manafactures their phone in Communist China and the wikipedia says that they have had spyware on their smartphones. If not BLU, then maybe try getting a Samsung smart device and paying $80 a month for it

Android is already a botnet, it's a matter on whether you want China or the US to spy on you.

MSA update out:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-eDgbqfQ4w
OAO-ONE (pic related), weird unit that get stronger the more you spawn her, too fragile IMO for the current meta unless you manage to cap her skill by spawning her 5 times, relatively cheap and good range though. May become pretty good if she ever get buffed.
Veteran Dragunov, same as above: stats too low to be usable but may become good if she get buffed as her kit itself is not bad.
Yutong, literally Loretta ST but better and actually usable. May not be as good outside of a PM deck.
Christmas Towa, very (too?) similar to her Rebellion counterpart, is probably not as good due to the fact that both the OG and the Rebellion version got buffs.
btw, PF players should get the 7000 Class Locomotive solely because it has 2 factions buffs.
On a side note, 10TARO WILL FINALLY GET NERFED NEXT UPDATE
Pic of the new units here: https://twitter.com/SoarinSkys/status/1326424222659465216 (embed)
Overall, a big PM-centric update.
And of course, still no new AS

PJK is easily the worst Ultimate. At least God Rokker spits out stupid damage and has a counter in knock back that can snipe a base

Invader King is also bad though

Holy fuck I hate the coin shops so goddamn much. 60k guild coins and I only get 60 Vanguard part. Why the fuck are these shops STILL RNG determined? All these units are completely useless by now and only have meme usage

Alright, so strengthened Dion is climbing up the ranks. Should I buff him too along with Cabrakan?
>>
>>234507
No to Cabrakhan. Yes on Dion if you don’t have Nova or Padwah.
>>
I like the metal slug series and have played the classics. It's this game worth the time or is just some grab-money game?
>>
>>234507
Buffing an unit is only worth it if its at least to gold. And I'm biaised on that point but I would rather keep using my waifu Nova.
As for the Cabrakan, no. Just get Special Naomi (potential base sniping) or Grazia ST (protection against some base-sniping projectiles+fire damage) instead, both have a speed buff.

>>234902
It added more characters and expanded on the story/lore but no, I wouldn't recommend it in its current state, the game is pretty unbalanced and you can't watch again most of the story, it's leaking players on top of that.
>>
>>234902
It’s ok for lore and story stuff that expand the MS series but it’s definitely a money grabbing and playing the PvP is the epitome of unfun
>>
>>234902
The sprite works are really great and the gameplay is a mindless, chaotic time killer. But you definitely have to spend some money to catch up with long time players. Unless you maybe want to grind for about half a year, just to get some decent unit roster.

MSA update out:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz1ZirlITpI
Howell: healer unit for PF, pretty good at healing, not that good as an attacker.
Christmas Rumi (pic related): support unit who will constantly drop items, technically can't move but has an evasion skill that will make her drop more item and heal unit near her. She's basically an immortal pinata until you bring a stunner or kill her through her evasion.
Dion ST: Rebel staller, good animations with lot of invincibility frames, can stun on all attacks and has a counter if knockbacked that cause him to do an AoE attack (doesn't damage the base). Not stun immune and only has 34.5% evasion though.
Christmas Abigail: spawn at the desired location, unleash an attack that does large amount of fire damage and leave the battlefield. Cheap and very strong against large units but does not help against evasion and is rather fragile.
Pic of the new units here: https://twitter.com/SoarinSkys/status/1332225914319433734
Still no new AS.
Also fuck you SNK for making me fight my waifu in Large Battlefield A of the current event.

>>
>>249417
A must for PF main/rusher. She's terrifying when combined with Regular Shielded Soldier or any decent frontliner, as when amassed she can get some lucky crit shot against those pesky i-frame laden units. But she doesn't stand a chance when the battle evolved into late game because she's very susceptible to knockback and she's dangerously close to the frontline. Also, the likes of Aqua HMT can one shot her.

Are Snatch wars back? I stopped playing some years ago and I want to know if coming back is worth it
>>
>>255635
>Are Snatch wars back?
Nope, they were removed because they couldn't stop cheaters and because the event was overwhelmingly unpopular with F2Pplayers.
>>
>>255674
I remember that it was because a guild of spics got into a Japanese server (p2w+cheaters), kicked everyone's ass, got the maximum number of points possible (99999999 or something like that) and then renamed the guild to "Hiroshima". It's pretty shitty that SNK abbandoned the idea of snatch wars altogether instead of completely banning cheaters. The most punishment you could get was getting shadowbanned and put into the black server (And even then, only individual pvp modes got affected). Is there at least another event that puts guilds to good use? Aside from the guild coop they implemented after the last snatch war
>>
>>255790
Region hopping was actually very common to the point guilds who did that to avoid each other failed to do so.
But yeah, the japanese player base was pretty pissed since they are more casual overall.
At the height of it, it was not just one but several guilds was were not even trying to hide they were cheaters by getting scores that are impossible to get.

>It's pretty shitty that SNK abbandoned the idea of snatch wars altogether instead of completely banning cheaters.
They did ban cheaters afterward, the reason they failed to do so for so long is because they had no idea how those people were cheating.
Internet security is hard and SNK had to learn it the hard way with MSA twice.

>Is there at least another event that puts guilds to good use? Aside from the guild coop they implemented after the last snatch war
No, it's actually one of the main reason whales are leaving/left, they can't show off anymore and Metal Arena is a fucking chore to play.

Big MSA update out:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAb8wjlACeA
Wendy: glass cannon, good damage and stun capabilities but dies rather fast to backline sniper. Doesn't replace Elysion but complement her nicely.
Christmas Amundsen: a rather mediocre unit: short range, mediocre damage and low HP. Her ability to knockback is nice but that's all she has.
Clone Abby Code:Luna: glass cannon with the ability to silence and long range. Pretty good if you're an alien main. Has a barrier that halves damage from all elements but it doesn't mean much considering her low HP.
Snow Clone Betty: Literally the above but without the ability to silence, slower and worse stats. Get her sister if you only care about gameplay.
Pretty Morden: Rebel attack (high) buffer and summoner. Since she's a faction buffer she will always be relevant, as for her combat abilities, summoners tend to get powercreeped fast but right now, she's pretty good.
On a sidenote, I hear she triggered people hard which seems weird since Terryko was rather well received.
Tyrant Julia: also a Rebel attack (small) buffer, not very good sadly: prone to knockback, low HP and mediocre damage. Very sexy though.
No new AS as usual and it does feel they gave up on expanding the lore sadly.

At least someone made a cute drawing of my wife Nova (pic related):

Spent about 20K medals across Christmas and New Year cranks and got Mantis, Biene, Katalina, Emma ST, Victoria, Nova ST, Rita for Liberty, Svetla and Jane Doe. Making my rebel deck the one with most premium units. Anyway, is there any of them that can be used to counter backliner like fucking AHMT in a mixed deck?

Rebel main here.
Rebel are in a bad position right now because they get fucked early by PF Shield soldier and Tyra, who got buffed to ridiculous level.
On a side note, Pretty Morden was literally made to be used as a combo with the PJK and even like that, it's nowhere as broken as the jamming effect from the Avatar of Evil alone.

>Anyway, is there any of them that can be used to counter backliner like fucking AHMT in a mixed deck?
Mantis but his (her?) AI is rather erratic.

And congratulation on getting best girl, even if she's not meta anymore.
>>
>>294114
>Mantis
Not really, her attack just keep triggering AHMT's self-healing counter, at least she's useful against Clone Incubator. The only one who can manage to kill AHMT in a one-on-one fight is Biene, but her special doesn't reach far back enough to hit her in actual battle.
But then again, she's going to get nerfed next month, so I'm not complaining much. Hopefully they will buff ultimate units too, CR Rokker would have been perfect if it weren't for its tendency to die after casting its special once.
>>
>>294367
I don't actually have Mantis but that little shit is always a pain to deal with so I assumed (wrongly apparently) that he also counter AHMT.

>>293697
You can also try to stun AHMT with Katalina or pray for lucky crit with Emma ST. I don't use them in my Rebel deck but I've heard good things about players who use them.

MSA update out:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BR7PMcKkL50
Hard-Armed Clark, insanely strong pusher for PF, big damage, evasion and a lot of invincibility frames. Must have for PF as he needs HP buffs because of his low HP.
Special Heidern, the original was a meme, this one is "only" mediocre to decent.
Zahara (pic related), PM priestess with big tiddies. Special has infinite range but doesn't damage the base. Is a must have for PM main because of her superior attack buff alone.
Special Anastasia I, weird unit that spawn in her spirit form at the frontline to attack and is fully invincible during it. Once she return to her normal form, she's just a worse version of her original iteration but with a better (imo) special.
Pic of the new units here:

Special Anastasia I
>>
>>294453
IMO, Katalina is too fragile as a stunner for mixed deck. She's overshadowed by Pauline, tanky enough to withstand AHMT's special, immunity from stun and can heal half of her HP every second. Maybe she can be useful once she's strengthen-able. Haven't fully equipped Emma ST yet, so I don't know how well she fare in actual battle.

>>295024
Man, fucking PM got another premium with powerful assist. And instead of Marco/Tarma for liberty PF got monster necked Clark.
>>
>>295239
But Pauline is getting nerfed soon...
>>
>>295708
Fair enough, she's pretty OP anyway. Hate to see units with potential being obsolete on arrival.
>>
I've been meaning to ask this for ages, just what the hell is hidden motion?
>>
>>293697
AHMT literally has no counter. That’s why everyone hates that bitch.
>>
>>296248
A secret animation that’ll play on the unit if your deck contains a unit related to them. For example, winning a battle with Bloom Metzelei in your deck would normally cause her to do her little dance during the victory screen, but if you have Fedeln Metzelei in your deck too then it changes to her being angry with a thought bubble of him to reference the fact that she hates him
>>
Finally got Clark on the final day. I hate to admit this but he made Leona kinda obsolete for my deck. Wish they will remove the 100K damage cap for her.
>>
Cute!
