Curious enough there are still few informatios missing out, that could led to a complete credibility. But if the vip line confirms so...
Funny enough, *takes out tinfoil hat* so i dont know if i am the only one founding this reveal quite strange, since the time it got revealed, matches within the time mihoyo is getting a huge shitshow regarding HI/GI. Its feels off they dropped this "huge" ball during the whole censorship drama and mhy fucking up global players(thanks to chinese crying).
Either way, curious if they plan to release an already revised version with all the content that got censored on CN as for the new chinese law regulations(uncensored) or just copy paste the actual CN version( currently missing out things thanks to censorship).
But everyone is hyped, since you could finally enjoy a good action game with a KINO ost like this:
https://youtu.be/q2DBeby7ni8
>>
>>408094
Good.
>>
>>408105
Most likely there's a part of this that stems from market timing. But frankly if the recent stuff that had uhh "English translations" were any indicator of quality, I'll probably stick to playing on TW, and maybe log in every now and then on Global.

Then again, likely we won't even get Global until end of year so...
>>
>>408159
With all the game drama that is backing them up, it will be hilarious to watch both companies trying to pull shitty moves.
Also pgr cn revenue is going downhill as people found out how kurogame fucked off most artists and internal devs.

So now that this is getting a Global release, how easy would it be to get pic? Like is she a launch character, is she a limited etc. She’s 90% of my interest in the game.
>>
>>408271
Look at vmg drama thread or the older hig topics for more informations but:
Tldr:They denied GLB players from the third anniversary because chinese players got triggered by an exclusive costume and a special mmd with myth and roid music.
So MHY to appease China, avoided releasing the whole event and instead gave GLB 500 crystal(which is fucking nothing) and Loyal china players a whole free 10 roll (for something meant to be exclusive for global and not for them)..
The Absolute State Of Everyone who still trust a company who bends only to ccp and chinese players.
Unironically during this whole shitshow, MHY was already being flamed by genshin players since they didnt fix the datamine breach(genshin can still be datamined) and fucked up the PC version of Honkai.
Strangely during this whole drama, kurogame or someone who seems to be their PR, dropped the ball with PGR global so people will likely shift when the game gets released.

You'll be waiting a minimum of 6 months after launch cause she came with the summer event. But lucky for you, she's not limited, farmable, and is an A rank so once she's on rate up you only have to do one ten roll (yes seriously, ONE ten roll) to get a copy of her. She also has a free skin so long as you login during the event.

>kurogame fucked off most artists and internal devs
Fyi, most of those artists came from GFL, better off to cut ties with them considering how much of a drama- magnet they are.

>>
>>408363
They replaced them with diversity hires, if you think that's a good thing then PGR deserves everything it gets
>>
>>408366
Keep in mind that this was how it was handled in CN. There is a chance global could have a slightly accelerated pace to catch up with CN. If you're not going to play till then, I'd look for when they announce Chapter 12 which will have Lucia Raven Feather since summer event would be the next patch.
>>
>>408374
How time intensive is it during normal daily play, and with events? If it’s not too hard to keep up with while also playing AK I might just pick it up from launch.
>>
>>408376
It will take less time to complete dailies compared to AK (coming from an AK player myself) since instead of running a stage, waiting for it to finish, and then doing another like AK, you can use all your stamina at once on a stage. This is the same for events. The only time consuming parts are Pain Cage (4 chances a day, 8 chances on weekends) and War Zone (which are done 4x a week) and that's really only if you try hard since you'll get rolling currency just for doing them.

CN currently has some QoL changes that cuts that time a bit further for War Zone and general/event farming since you can autocomplete the first two stages of Warzone and can auto complete farming stages (with some caveats). Those two QoL changes happen around Chapter 12-Summer event as well.
>>
>>408368
Some of the promotional material on Twitter or some other social media site had presumably official English translations that were so jumbled that it was easier to just Google translate the Chinese instead.

>>408374
I don't think they'll fast track global desu, there's no sign of them fast tracking TW, and we're waiting to see if they'll accelerate JP.

>>408376
Not time intensive at all.
Log in. Daily cycle once you have hit a high enough level is do 4 rounds of pain cage (quick boss fights), 3 rounds of score attack, and eventually a progressive dungeon. You cap at 160 energy, and you get two free pots on top of another free pot that's applied automatically (60 energy iirc?) when you check logins. Burn 200 energy and you should have all of your daily quests complete. The guild and progressive dungeon won't be released in JP or global for a while, TW has only had it for roughly a month or so.

If you don't care much about the story, you can quickly skip through all the dialogue portion of the stages, the story fights aren't that hard. So finishing chapters doesn't take much time either. You can auto for regular farming stages, so that's literally tap one button and you burn 240 energy. Normally, event farming is something like, 2 - 3 minutes to burn 240 energy (8 rounds).

Event specific sequences aren't that intensive either. Typically it is more challenging content near the end compared to the story stages and pain cage, so the intensive part comes when you can't beat a boss and have to figure out whether you're just hard stuck because your team is too weak or you just need practice to learn their pattern. Otherwise, event sequences often have entry limits, so you aren't going to be grinding on it for hours and hours.

Both JP and TW were accelerated, though TW has slowed down. JP is getting Raven Feather almost two months earlier then they should be.

Also how interesting is the story?
>>
>>408586
As some other anons claimed, they removed dolls destructions animation which now is considered Gore in China.
A doll dying and destroy her self= gore, ok china.
>>
>>408587
The story is set like many other china mobages
"The story of game were centered around the post-apocalyptic world environments that were occupied by corrupted cybernetic enemies; which are infected by the virus called the "Punishing". As the commander of Gray Raven squad, you will lead your squad to fight against the infected and other opposite force on Earth and retaking the planet. ".
Now the general consensus is that the first part of the story is good, but since the recent changes on staff and drama being the queen of whatever reasons the could find. The second part falls off in a similar" honkai type " way, so its something more skin to fujio or ex- baddies becoming good ppl(be aware this is something that i cant confirm since i dont play cn, but i did read the recent drama).
The game has a good following because its carried by a to good to be true gameplay (which is their main selling point) and plays in a similar way you play arknights.
Log in do dailies /events and your done, basically spend your stamina regularly and you will be fine.
>>
>>408600
Are those gone for other servers too? I don't give a fuck about the censonship boatfags or gunnigers get becasuse it only affects the CN servers, but if this is part of the PGR JP release that's a bit sad.

How meta chasing is PGR? Like, do I need to constantly use the newest, best characters or can I just stick with my favourites?
>>
>>408611
Anon here, i really wanna know that too, but i actually dont know(same for JP/TW) . They might release the same cn version with eng patch or release a revised vers with all the content that isnt censored.
But since we have only a teaser and no informations out its really hard to tell, we can only wait.
>>408615
As far as i know you can stick with your favorites.
>>
>>408615
There really isn't any incentive to chase the meta. The only places you'd care about meta are Pain Cage and War Zone, and that's only if you just want to e-peen that you have the highest score. If you just want to do them to do complete your dailies you can use whoever you want.

If you want to go SSS and up, very. Other than that, since it updates so slowly you can get every S rank that comes out since saving 60 rolls isn't too awful. The weapon gacha sucks, but you can usually manage to get that done to.

If you do start, you must pick Karen, no questions asked. Don't get baited and pick someone else with your free S pick ticket.

PGR had a terrible initial release in CN, so much so that the company triple downed on damage control and had to go on a redemption run so to speak. PR was poorly managed and PR continues to be Kuro's biggest weakness. But compared to a lot of the other games in the market (this being the Chinese market), it is generally seen as being on the middle to upper middle end of the quality spectrum.

Thing is, PGR fits a very specific niche. You like action gameplay where you commit to character and mash different bosses? You'll probably enjoy this because it's not a major time investment, and you can learn how to play competently without having to break your hands like you would for Devil May Cry - but on the other hand, it takes commitment of many shorter intervals over a longer period (pretty much the same with all mobile games). It can take you weeks to months to build up a character (from the perspective of end game content) - this is a very common "con" that different collector mobile games have and PGR is generally "middle of the road" in this regard, in part because it has a smaller roster of characters.

This is a "con" that most people can overlook, since generally speaking the characters play differently enough that you can just find a main and use them to carry you through content (I use Karenina for this for instance).

Sound design in the game is seen as its strongest department, so generally speaking, no complaints there. Story is not anything spectacular - PGR is a byproduct of a phase in the Chinese market when every goddamn company loved the "post apocalyptic sci fi disaster" genre. Art is decent, as a whole art in Chinese mobages has been improving.

Generally speaking if you like this kind of gameplay and you're familiar with it, PGR is a "safe bet" option. You could honestly just download the TW client (doesn't need VPN or Chinese credentials) and test it out for a week to see how you like it.

>wanted to try it
>IP blocked
great game you have there, anon
>>
>>409878
wasnt there a whoel thread in vmg about PGR's drama shitshow
>>
>>409874
-It's ok to use 5* memories/consciousness at the beginning but don't over invest in them.
If you can afford it, its worth buying daily stamina/BC pass.
-Like Honkai, don't bother rerolling. Hit pity first at 40 rolls, then use your S selector. You can pick whoever you want but if you're going to roll for gameplay, Dark Kamui (I think its Dark Energon for global) is recommended.
-Level your characters evenly at the beginning since nuts can bottleneck you easy. Gets much easier later.
-Play with sound on cause enemies cause some enemies have sound cues (fuck you Musashi).
-Prepare lube for Dark Camu cause he likes to go in raw.
>>
>>409889
There was, but because PGR has pretty much no global impact, people generally don't care much. To put it into perspective, PGR is generally rather stable in the Chinese market, no major shifts in either direction that isn't mirrored by the rest of the pack.

And at the end of the day, most people will at least look back at it and go "well at least it wasn't the Xipuria shitshow".

>>409883
TW server. You can find it on Qooapp under PGR Traditional. Never ran into a problem with IP blocks.

>>409874
Don't rush to buy weapons right away. You can get through even moderately difficult content with standard (4*) weapons, but if you try and kit everyone out as you get them, you're going to need to buy currency to maintain that, and realistically speaking, you're likely only going to use one core team during your start up phase.

You can grind if you want, but grinding outside of events is generally not all that necessary. You'll get pots daily, and they're on a timer, but once the event cycle starts, generally events are much more efficient for farming mats.

Play every character at least once - because later events will have you sometimes use characters not even in your roster (so if you're like me and never got to roll Alpha, I can run Alpha and live out the Vergil fantasy), and while it's good to have a core set of characters you can fall back on, knowing which units you want to avoid and which units whose playstyle you really like works out in your favor.

>>409893
Which version of Musashi is this? Cause the Pain Cage one you can do without sound cues (though honestly you might as well keep the sound on). I've never had Musashi in Pain Cage use his tornado slash (where he spins and fires off energy blades in 4 directions), but his vanish into force slash and his vanish into clone strike both have a specific 3-2-1 pattern that you can use to dodge visually.
>>

>>
>>409905
CN is. JP and TW are uncensored, they even have a skins for Alpha with a thong on and Nanami/Liv showing pantsu along with uncensored memory/consciousness art.

>>409901
I'm talking about Pain Cage Musashi since yes you can visually see his pattern for the slash wave and strike, you sometimes lose track of him so I play with sound on since you can hear him "woosh" and when you don't hear it you know he's gonna send a wave or strike.
>>
How does this game compare with Honkai, ignoring the chink drama
>>
>>409882
GFL and AL have been censoring and they've had no drama yet. As long as global servers don't get hurt people won't fight.
>>
>>409914
Well I find the gacha way less predatory for one. Also like that I can use and save for whoever I want without caring about meta and I find the combat more satisfying. Also has a banger OST.
>>
>>409911
I think I have unconsciously trained myself to start counting seconds the moment he vanishes, but typically without sound and without visual cues I can still dodge Musashi without much of an issue. I actually find the variant with the tornado spin attack to be more of a menace, cause even if you dodge that thing and enter bullettime, his spin can keep going after bullettime ends lol.
>>
>>409914
Gameplay is roughly the same. Aesthetic is different, but that's really a matter of personal preference. Characters again, are a matter of personal preference, but because PGR has fewer characters and the gacha is on a whole more forgiving, there isn't much of a "gacha chase" at all. Sound design is typically seen as the strongest point, story is run of the mill - if you find yourself liking the characters you'll probably be fine with the story.

I find that PGR is a smaller time investment all around. Some other Chinese games tend to employ time incentives, like setting up collection timers that compel you to log in every six hours or whatever. With PGR as long as you log in once a day for maybe ten to thirty minutes depending on what you want to do and whether it is event season, you're basically good.
>>
>>409903
Yeah but it isn't made by MiHoYo so that's good enough for me.
>>
>>409935
How do you pay it? It doesn't look like it has a PC client, which is what I like about Honkai.

Does it support emulators well?
>>
>>409935
That's good, the main issue I have with Honkai is the daily time investment
>>409938
There's been chink drama with AL, GFL and Mihoyo games very recently, it's a CN thing apparently because crazy niggers can just threaten to shut down companies by complaining to the government
>>
>>409926
Yeah, I don't have much of a problem with him or Camu now but as a newfag they can take time to get the hang of.

>>409941
It actually supports emulators pretty well, its officially supported on Mumu Player where you can play it at 120FPS if your PC is good enough. One thing I've heard is that it runs really well even on potato phones, can't really confirm that since I have a more recent phone.
>>
>>409956
When I first started off, the hardest boss for me was Dark Camu. Always felt like he was in a tier of his own. Roland was annoying with his jumping around and lobbing explosives and Tifa with all her running away was annoying too, but the rest were pretty manageable. But then again I started off during Fallen Star when the only event boss that I could farm was Musashi so I had plenty of practice.

Unrelated, but it irks me that I still have one blank entry in my boss catalogue because the Assault Fortress boss was a limited time boss that never showed up again.

>>409893
>You can pick whoever you want but if you're going to roll for gameplay, Dark Kamui (I think its Dark Energon for global) is recommended.
I'm not sure I agree, as someone who saves cards and only rolls on new character 100% banners, I feel that Karenina would be better in the (really) long run. No new fire S has come up so you either miss out and have to use the mediocre A ranks or are at the mercy of 70% banners, whereas dark eventually gets Luna (and I personally think has better A ranks to tide you over). And yeah, it's a long time scale to be working on, but it's exactly the situation I'm in a year and a half from launch because I picked Liv instead of a fire S rank.

I agree, feels like he's kinda a newfag filter since you can't just spam attacks at him since he might guard mid combo. And you know what happens he guards. And you can't keep your distance from him too long or he'll do the whole "GET OVER HERE" shit with his arm.

>>410007
While you have a point, I think most people pick Kamui because he has lasting power compared to the other S ranks and fire is currently in a bad spot right now on the CN server that they can't recommend Karen. Fire characters really need to be buffed.

Why did they feel the need to rename it from Eden lol.
>>
>>410667
Eden was always the class of the ship, not the name. There are multiple Eden ships, why do you think its codenamed "E-02"?
>>
>>410674
There's only one Eden class ship in the Chinese version of the info sheet, it's a plot point that they couldn't make another one in time because the project was ongoing just as the zero point reactor went haywire. I don't mind them changing things, but I'm curious why they do it. Well at least as long as they don't start changing characters as well anyways.

Having more Eden class vessels than just one actually introduces more holes into the plot. The original outbreak was in 2148, and it's been roughly 2 decades since then, approximating that current year is around 2167 based on Lucia's service record and time of activation. We know that the Punishing Virus is capable of operating in space, and we've already run into an instance of the virus seizing control of a space station during Fallen Star.

The classification of 02 implies that there was at least one other ship which was completed, unless for some reason they decided that number 1 was unlucky and opted to start naming from number 2. But no one in Eden ever mentions another vessel or any other colonization initiative. On top of that, we know that the virus is capable of repairing and restoring functions to significantly damaged machinery. If there was another ship, they should have already encountered it by now.

Long and short of it is that during humanity's golden age, they tampered with zero point energy and created a virus that affects both humans and machines. Human civilization collapsed when their machines were turned against them. For the next two decades, the surviving humans were driven back over and over. To fight against the infected machines, they developed robotic shells, these are the Structured.

The Structured are robotic shells with a transferred human consciousness, and combined with inhibitor technology, it made a slow retreating action possible. Eventually, people retreated to the colony ship which had been built but was never launched during the golden age. At least, the people fortunate enough did, many of the character backstories involve people who didn't, or those who were left behind, or those who opted to stay behind.

The Player is a member of the Eden "provisional government", acting as a commander (whose job is basically to be a tactical relay and an emotional anchor for the Structured - something that the heads of EDEN REALLY dislike). The surface plot revolves around slowly retaking territory on the surface, but naturally, shit happens. Along the way you reconnect with the survivors who weren't so lucky to escape into space.

Most of them have reasons to be antagonistic towards EDEN, and the only reason they aren't trying to destroy you outright is because the virus is the worse of two evils in their eyes.

Later on in the story you're told about more variations as far as Structured go, and most of it lies to some of humanity's major fuckups during their panic mode response to the outbreak and clawing for survival thereafter.

>>412593
I was using Mumu as well but it was on me being dumb. The emulator does pick up the controller, I just had something disabled. But the game natively supports controllers as well but it wasn't detecting my xbone or ps4 controller which was the issue so I had to map out my controller though the emulator, which works out fine. Still kinda sucks I can't natively use my controller but the mapping works
>>
>>412593
>>412613
Oh, as for performance it works really well.

How do the controllers handle the skill sphere things? I have a steam controller so if I play it through Emu it's gonna have to be m+kb sadly.

I guess I'll start setting up the emu as well if they're gonna release the game soon
>>
>>412616
That's the line of skills above the attack/dash buttons that come in 3 colours right? Well the line collapses to the right so I have a button set up at the very end so I can just spam that and the line will collapse towards the button, but I do have a separate button mapped on the left side of the line in case there's a stronger chain there to save time. Might try sticking a button in the middle just to see how that works.

God I hate the Amberia Lightning Shield bug. It literally shows that she doesn't have the shield effect active and the game is still proccing her lightning shield every 10 seconds.
>>
I have never played a Honkai-esque game before so I am confused about rarity in this game. Is A and S equivalent of 4* and 5*? And what is SSS+ even? And I read that there will be equipment and stigmata. Is this going to be Epic 7 or King's raid gear grind?
>>
>>412922
If I recall correctly the only B class character is Nanami and maybe your starters, not counting exp fodder since you can't use them in combat, so if you want to compare against numbers, PGR basically has no 1-3*s, and it's only 4*s (common), and 5*s (not as common).

Every character can be enhanced up to SSS+ by farming mats for them during weekly events/buying them in shop. This is the majority of the grind, but aside from extreme end game content, you can clear everything with a A to S+ team, S+ is pretty easy to reach with daily play.

Equipment is split between 4*/5*/6*. 4* is easy to get and will again carry you through pretty much everything. 5* helps, it's typically a 10 roll and you get to select which banner has increased odds. 6* is a also generally roll only. In theory you can get higher tier weapon drops through coop, in application you don't really need to bother. A 4* weapon is already "good enough" for clearing 99% of content. So the "grind" is really only for people who want to dump tickets into weapon gacha and minmax for trophy purposes (literally).

Stigmata in this game are called memories. You will get a steady supply of them by playing in events as they come up, and farming 6*s is relatively easy since there's always a stage that guarantees 6* drops every 8 runs, and alternatively you can buy them via weekly events, or just farm the normal currency to buy them. It's generally cheapest to get them from events. Yes, you can minmax on them, but again, it's entirely optional. A full 6* memory set typically takes a beginner maybe a few weeks to put together if they start during an event. If you're focusing on maxing out a single character, typically you'll have plenty of 6* dupes that you can either stockpile or recycle.

Challenge content in PGR is entirely optional. You get a neat trophy for it, but that's it and the gacha currency is kept at accessible difficulty levels.
>>
Which S Class should I pick with my ticket? I was thinking either Lee or Karenina but my heart wants Nanami.
>>
>>412959
Then pick Nanami.
>>
>>412959
If you haven't taken a look at their movesets I suggest you do, because the three characters handle differently from one another. Look them up on Youtube and see which one suits you.
>>
>>412943
Huh, sounds pretty reasonable.
>>
>>412922
you can't farm S rarity characters past SS without rolling either dupes or shards in gacha
>>
>>412994
how many characters are there and how long does it take to max them, for F2P and dolphin?
>>
>>412240
They WHAT? Why even bother with 2B and swimsuits if they're not fan service
>>
>>413099
CN currently has 31 characters, 3 of them are from the Nier collab.
Completely maxing a character doesn't take time, it takes money, because ultimately you're going to need to roll for the 6* weapon + dupes, and you're going to need character dupes to hit SSS+.

But if you're actually F2P, you're only going to care about when the character is usable for things like Pain Cage, War Zone, and Event Cycles, which is where most of the free currency comes from once you're done the story. That generally takes a few weeks during the event season.

Case in point, I rolled Rosetta (Got her on pity - so 60 rolls) this event, which started roughly a month ago. By the first week in I had her level capped, I didn't bother grabbing her weapon, and I had one set of memories readied for her to use as support, and a second set of memories for her to use as a main attacker. I assembled the base components of both sets about a week and a half in, and I started farming dupes to enhance the set, at the moment I have 1 out of 2 sets done. For pretty much 90% of content aside from Babel Tower, she performs fine. When I first started, I dumped pretty much everything into Karenina, the time constraint wasn't building up the character, it was building up my own level because I wasn't spamming energy to increase my rank. Currently the highest characters I have are SS and that's it, no SSS because I only roll during new banners.

I play once a day, generally 20 minutes to an hour, depending on whether I'm smashing my head against a boss. Currently I have completed basically everything except Babel Tower, which I honestly don't give a shit for, and I haven't perfected the overspeed version of Amberia. Rest of the event is basically all done for me and I'm only farming for more resources now while building up for the next roll event which should be Qu.
>>
Fuck. I meant to say 31 + 3 from the collab, so 34 in total, but whatever. It's not a massive cast list, and if you're just starting off on JP or you're asking for the eventually maybe Global release, you won't have 34 characters at launch, more like 15, don't remember exactly.
>>
>>413116
China is getting extremely restrictive on anything remotely fan service, it's a terrible state of affairs.
>>
>>413127
Does each character have weapons that are unique to them and only they can use? I read some guides on reddit and they told me gold 5* is enough to clear all content and getting characters to SSS+ is the most important thing
>>
>>413208
You will never get S ranks to SSS+ unless you're a whale and the minor cost of weapons won't matter at all by comparison.
>>
>>413211
Why not? Don't you get 2 shards/day? I would be disappointed if it is gated like this
>>
>>413217
Not him, but I think you're confused. Base A ranks you can farm 2 shards/day and can farm infinitely up to max rank (SSS+). Base S ranks you can only farm up to SS from doing Pain Cage, to go higher than SS for S ranks you have to roll for more copies. Not sure what reddit you're citing but most people don't go above SS unless they whale so they're probably talking about A ranks.

>>413255

Damn I'd like to main Alpha but if I can't reroll for her I guess i'll just play and save for her, if I dont get her then i'll just start a new account
>>
>>413208
If you're just trying to clear content you do not require SSS+. Certain weapons have special effects that benefit specific characters to a greater extent. Chasing SSS+ is mostly if you're trying to top the leaderboards, and it is a very costly endeavor.
>>
So all of those clips I see from the game on silky smooth fps are recorded in mumu? I played the game on bluestacks and memu and I had mediocre performance. My cpu is getting old so it may be related to that but the game looks so nice on those clips/videos
>>
>>413463
Mumu is really optimized for PGR but if you're bottlenecked you're bottlenecked. One thing you could try if you were desperate is the Mumu Assistant (as opposed to the regular Mumu emulator), it's only on the Chinese site but it can run PGR as a multi-threaded application instead of the regular single thread.

You don't roll the 40 banner at all and only roll the event 60 and weapon banners. Slowly accumulate rolls for the 40 from freebies and weeklies (160~ tickets per week, 10k total). Save your S ticket for 2 years until after rolling the 40 without having spent a single black pass.

I believe most of the characters love (you) or deeply care about (you) in some fashion. I think the only ones that don't are Alpha, Ayla, Luna and maybe Bianca . Though I'm not 100% on Bianca since you do go on a date with her, Luna's coming around to it, and while Alpha may not love you she is jealous of the relationship you have with Lucia since its something she couldn't have (because of her background).

The Structures need a tactical commander to act as their mental failsafe so they don't end up overrun by the Punishing Virus. There's an entire school set up for people like you, but not all of the students possess an aptitude for memory diving while you do (you meet up with a fellow student who lacks that ability later on, and it turns out you were basically the equivalent of the class president/valedictorian during your year).

The Structures can resist contamination from the virus to some degree with their built in equipment, but past instances have proven that without a commander, the likelihood that a Structure goes rogue or worse is moderately high. The more insidious side to the commander/your role is that you're there to deliberately build an attachment to the Structures, basically to keep them convinced that fighting for the humans is the right choice.

There are those in Eden who hate this, not because they think that it's wrong, but because they see you as a potential liability for being able to fulfill this role. But the technology to enslave the Structures en masse hasn't been properly developed yet, and past attempts to strip humans of emotions and turn them into complete weapons led to major disasters. The early tech geared towards turning living humans into comatose AI control towers also didn't pan out that well because the test commanders went crazy.

Your role is really simple. You're there to stall for time while the government works towards a more efficient solution - i.e. a solution that doesn't hinge on you and others like you. You aren't expected to win the war, and even if your direct CO appreciates your team's effectiveness, the chief of operations would rather you be his guinea pig in perfecting his superweapon plans.

Said chief of operations also caused numerous fuckups in the past, most of which haven't been cleaned up, so the mess has only spread. No surprise, you're the one who has to deal with the consequences.

Why do they keep doing this?

>>421922
They don't? PGR was released during a period when post apocalyptic sci fi was the major trend and everyone wanted to release either that or something tied to cyberpunk. Nowadays that trend isn't all that popular anymore.

Is rerolling needed for a specific OP unit at the start? If yes, how easy/annoying is it to do?
>>
>>422022
No. You get a free ticket that you can use to pick one of the starting S classes. There isn't any point in rerolling unless you started during the last moments of an event and you really want to get the unit tied to the event during the 100% drop rate.
>>
>>422022
You can reroll to avoid a dupe with your first standard gacha guarantee if you want, but it's a really quite slow

Sure OP, just spoonfeed me where to download it and a UI translation guide so I'm not fumbling around in the dark for 45 minutes before deciding to play a gambling sinkhole I can actually read
>>
>>421922
It's cool
>>
>>422022
Rerolling is easy and you should do it if you don't plan on being a day 1 player.

Alright but will I also be happy?

How powercreep is this game?
>>
>>422373
If you're trying to chase the top of the leaderboard, you're inevitably going to need to pay for extra tickets to roll for gear and whatnot. If you're more of a casual player looking for some activity daily and you're not going to do much beyond the events, then realistically you can stick with a single core team of characters, not have them be fully equipped, and you'll still do fine.
>>
So how is the player treated in the game? Self-insert commander that everyone loves? We don't exist? Some irrelevant dude that is just there and everyone just say hi and then ignore you? Are you relevant to the plot or is it early day Honkai where you are just canon during main screen?

Cool but how do the character view you? I see some people say they "love" you, but is hard to take that serious without a ring system a la Azur/GFL

It's not

I dunno, is hard to cope with real life. Is it wrong that I want to support something that helps with that?

Then you're in the wrong game if you want 24/7 dick riding from waifus and how much they love you. The characters like you but that takes a back seat because the story, character motivations, and the fucking apocalypse virus is more important than if certain character has feelings for you.

Cope by actually giving and receiving affection from your 4 kids and wife, you absolute retard.

Seems like there's no more loading screens to post on twitter, huh
>>
>>423575
Not surprised. Base game only has 5 loading screens. Two for the virus, one for the Grey Raven team, one for the Eden class, and one for the Ascendants. Every update adds 2 - 3.

I don't think there is anymore lore to dump. Next should be character introductions. May announce a beta too.
>>
>>423601
A lot of the lore comes from the stuff in game, background stories for each of the characters, and parts of it from the manga. But I honestly doubt they're going to do an official translation of the manga and most of the manga is snippets anyways. I'm still kinda miffed that they started the Dominic storyline in the manga then it just cuts halfway - since atm Dominic is still the biggest unknown factor in the story.
>>
>>423607
Who or what is Dominic?
>>
>>423607
I thought the manga was just meme shit, or am I thinking of a different one?
>>
>>423616
Dominic was a major figure during the Golden Age and in the early days of the Vaccine Era. For reference, the manga first mentions Dominic in 2130 - this is still during the Golden Age. Current year in game is roughly 2167 if you do the math. Back then he was part of the core technology development group which pushed for uniting the Earth via the use of AI Towers, which could coordinate and facilitate logistics on a wide scale. You meet one of these AI Towers that escaped infection later on in the game. In a sense, they're like the Warminds from Destiny, except their capabilities are more vague (the Ascendants want an AI tower for themselves anyways).

Dominic is believed to be responsible for the development of these AI Towers, but after the Virus outbreak, he left the group and instead joined the front lines fighting against the virus and infected machines. By the 15th year of the Vaccine Era (Hassan is a kid, maybe a teenager at this point), he has become a "myth", because somewhere along the line he disappeared on the battlefield, and from then on there are conflicting reports over whether he's still an active combatant or whether he became a Structure. It's implied but not confirmed in the manga that he is actually still alive (the soldier that gives Hassan a chocolate bar and his black card is implied to be Dominic), and has been dedicating his efforts towards developing a vaccine for the Virus. We know the efforts partially succeed because they eventually do develop a serum (the Chinese word for it translates to serotonin compound) that can inhibit the virus.

But...the chapters basically end on a cliffhanger, and after that it jumps forward in time to some chapters with Ayla, and some stuff with the Kowloon group. I haven't checked in a bit but iirc it never went back to explain anything with Dominic.

>>423638
There was a web video series that was mostly meme stuff, with the chibis. It was cute, but not that much lore.
>>
>>423681 (cont.)
The same set of chapters (titled Dominic's Orphans) also give some explanation for why Hassan is more inclined to side with you instead of Nicolai, because the guy basically idolizes soldier types (Dominic being one of them) - and all evidence from his upbringing suggests that Hassan went through the same shit that most of the early batch Structure candidates did.

Long story short, for a good part of the Vaccine Era, humans didn't know what the fuck they were doing and were moving forward via trial and error. Things such as the serum had to be tested on live subjects - and the conventional testing procedure was to deliberately infect a person with the virus, then introduce the serum and hope that it worked. As you might expect, most of the trial cases resulted in death. From some of the backstory chapters for the characters, many of the early Structures didn't fare much better, because the personality transfer technology wasn't perfect and in some cases the personality came out "wrong" (Amberia is one such case, but she also happens to be a case of intentional tampering, because the researchers deliberately sought to turn an orphan child into a makeshift war factory consequences be damned). The manga chapters dealing with Hassan end with him and the other kids in his orphanage being volunteered by lottery to test the serum.
