>PuraOre thread already diedWhat's going on? Is the game dying already, especially with ranks like this?
Japan just doesn't understand hockey.Also, the anime sucked.
Is no one on /vmg/ playing the game anymore?>>798115So the game is doomed?
>>798115Instead of hockey they should had made a game about horse racing instead.
>>798364I'm playing it, got Champion twice during the first event.
Where are the players?
what do you mean the hockey anime that baited people into thinking it was another idolshit game from bushiroad is dying
Don't let the thread die, folksPost your team
>today's rankings>out of the rankings entirely on April 9th>already hit the 1,000 rank twice>the game isn't even a month old yetIs this a really bad sign or just a bad sign?
>>811250Probably a sign that the Japanese hate hockey
New event SSR Goalie is pretty good, you can even see her ass cheek through the shorts.
>>815218Meant UR, Saya Ass is delicious though
>>815218Should have been a pantyshot
>>813035Problem is they made PureOre a cute girls sports franchise when it should have been pretty boys bodychecking one another like the manly sport it is. Sports anime is already a female audience genre and they fucked up hard on this franchise
>>822685Do you think turning them into idols was a good idea, or no?
>>822685They could've just gone the NHL route and played up the frequency and intensity of hockey fights, but they just had to go the idol route, which is incompatible with honorably beating the crap out of each other.
>>822685There's honestly nothing wrong with the premise idea. The execution is just lacking.
>>822779>>822798Do you think the game would be doing better if it was released before the anime, or was it just doomed from the start?
Speaking of doomed, is PuraOre fucked? It's been below the 1,000 rank for much of the past seven days.
>>823225It would have done better if they used the anime funds to make a better game. Then use game funds to make an anime. >>823226RIP
>>823225It definitely would have done better if it were released at the time the anime was airing, or just after it finished. People get bored/forget about mobile games because there are so many. The fac that it released almost half a yeah after the anime aired took all the wind out of its sails, if the anime had generated any at all.
https://twitter.com/game_puriore/status/1518515165624418304?t=LUtsrPQUSBC6NFAV05h3jg&s=19Holy shit, Bandori collab event coming in two days.
>>826850This looks like Craft Egg using their successful project to try and reinvigorate the failing one.
>>826850>>826893>>826946Sounds like desperation to me. Like they saw that the ranks were crashing and were desperate to fix it. I imagine if the game was doing better they wouldn't have done this until much later.
>>827058I hope it works, the Canucks got eliminated from the playoffs and this game is the only joy I have left in hockey
Will PuraOre make it to the end of the year?
Did the ranks improve yet?
>>833523>>836334Nope, it's doomed
>>836420>BanG Dream collab ongoing>only went as high as 509 and is already going back downIs that bad or not?
>>836947It's dreadful. Means that rank 500 is pretty much its ceiling
>>822755>>822779>>822798they probably thought they can replicate what horse pussy did
Is this thread just blog posts about a game's rank
interesting to see how long it will take before they shut it down, even the youjo senki game took a long time before eos and that's constantly above 1k rank
>>837189No one plays the game anymore and we're all waiting for the inevitable EoS announcement
>>837189 I still play it, been in champion rank since release. But they just knocked me down to Master 1 for some reason
>>837189This thread is just an excuse for /mbgg/ to doompost about the game's inevitable EoS
>>837042Same parent company too.
Wasn't the protagonist a short hair girl with orange hair? Because I believe the only girl with short orange hair that is kind of popular is Rin from Love Live.
>>842089>Wasn't the protagonist a short hair girl with orange hair?She was nicknamed Hockey Chika for a reason.
>>842390I forgot about Chika.
>>836947Bushiroad should be worried by this since it can be used to show that Bandori doesn't have a lot of pull on its own for IP collabs.
>>844832Even with the Bandori collab going on it's still went below 1,000 twice this month and hit the 900s thrice.
dead like the game
Event ended and the game is still doing like shit
>find this thread>op image is not cute anime girls but instead line go downpuraore got rugged. kek.
Puraore biggest issue for me is this generic bushiroad designs they love to use in any project
>>853330But it's not Bushiroad
>>853330>>853335Actually it's Craft Egg that designed them.
>>853330Craft Egg did the character designs for this and the Bandori mobage. Bushiroad has nothing to do with this apart from one of their in-house seiyuu being roped into this project and making a pair of newbies cry in the process.
>>853431>one of their in-house seiyuu being roped into this project and making a pair of newbies cry in the processWhat? Do you have a source for this?
Will the game make it to its six-month anniversary?
>>855377Revenue is stable at least
>>853442https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXFy8sJcwZwThe segment starts at 6:31 as "just one more question" from the newbies, where they ask about her savings, and she turns up the pressure and invokes her manager and the production staff in the process before leaving. The staff planned it as a prank, but it's mean-spirited. Asking them to wait there for ten minutes on top of that not knowing that it's all just a joke is too much.
>Bandori collab is over>game is now struggling to go above 1,000 in ranksIt's going to fall out of the ranks entirely sooner or later at this rate, isn't it?
Manaka is the best
>>862319That's not Misaki
Manaka crying because her game is closing when
i love how this thread is just doomposting
>>867909The game is doomed anyway
Does Manaka like Canada
>PuraOre hasn't gone above 1,000 since May 13thPoObros...
>>871998that girl looks exactly like chika from love live... what the fuck were they thinking
>>872520>we want the love live audience
>>872520>>872589Do you think it backfired?
Is anyone here still actually playing the game?
>>876445We never did in the first place.
They finally did the right thing and made ranked give only gems, instead of shit rewards and few as fuck gems. Also this Wedding dress Yu is cute
>>879786Will that improve the ranks or is it too little too late?
>>882933Not sure how willing people are to try it again. But one really obnoxious part was the stat training being a daily and taking 45 or 60 stamina based on training 1 attribute or two - if you did all 3 girls at once. It just ate a good chunk of stamina right off the bat.The actually reduced it to 4 & 6, so now when story events roll around you can have stamina to spend on your dailies and the story event. Makes grinding out the UR copies a lot easier.At this point, the only thing that will save the game is if they design some amazing bikini art for summer and make them for the girls with the fattest tits. Probably Kaoruko and Sachie, based on in-game art and the anime.
>>884188Pic related, I'd probably spend money to get this.
>>884188Do you think pantyshots would save the game?
>>885142Not really, but I think Swimsuits definitely could. People love a good summer version, that's for sure.
This isn't good, is it? Especially the numbers for June so far. I understand we are only halfway through this month, but those numbers can't be good, can they?
>>887092People aren't buying the wedding dresses...
>>887092i dunno, seems sustainable if they are paying only 1 dev to do everything
>>887092They definitely don't look good, please whip out the bikinis Craft Egg
>>887268It's on a downward spiral. If sales continue at the same rate for the remainder of June they will have gone down 80% compared to May.
>>887329Do you think it can still recover?
New Riko event unit is out, if you need a Center then grind out the rank event.
Not sure when they added this, but after a goal you get a little graphic of the goql scorer and the card. Pretty nice touch, I would say. Of course you have to not be playing in x3 to see it and have auto off.Something I didn't get a recording of, is that sometimes the game will zoom in on your player taking a shot and slowmo it.
>>890450It would help if I posted my image
Seems like they really took in some feedback, because now instead of being limited to 10 daily event ranked matches, you get the 5 free per day and then an infinite amount afterwards. It just costs 10 GP per attempt, allowing for easier grinding.
>>890452So they know their game is doing shit and they want to save it?
>>891126There's at least an attempt, because some of the updates make playing the game quite nice.
>>798115No. The JHA were being idiots and thought a ice hockey anime could not stand on it's own without idols.That is why it sucked.Either that or it was Anime by Production Committee at it's worse. Imagine if Mighty Ducks had a 10 minute concert sequence just because Universal Music wanted to sell some CDs. And 30 minutes wandering through Minnesota State Parks because 'explore Minnesota' said so.
>>891846Are you sure the idol aspect was the JHA's idea and not CyberAgent's?
>>891377Man those chibi models look awful and low quality. I know it's a mobile game, but I've seen PS1 games with better 3D than that.
Did something happen? It went from 1,471 one day to 722 and hasn't gone below 1,000 since then. Was it the update or was there something else that boosted it?
>>892500Probably the update and maybe the Stanley Cup Finals? The 2nd one is obviously a reach though.
>>893721Is a rank of 722 considered decent or is that still considered bad?
>>893779So even with the bump it's still doing bad? What would be considered a good rank anyway? 200?
>>893791Plenty of niche games like this do fine past the 300s
>>893792So you're saying PuraOre is doing just fine, or no?
>>892500It's back under 1000.>>893792300s and 1000s aren't quite the same. It also got an anime promotion which most games don't.
>>893799>300s and 1000s aren't quite the same. It also got an anime promotion which most games don't.What do you mean by this? It's doing good or not doing good?
Single ticket roll, thanks Mami
Any Princess Match players here? Feel free to try playing against my team6947960574
>>893799I guess the boost was short-lived? Not only is it back below 1,000 but it's doing about as bad as it used to prior to the update.
Got a 2nd copy of Riko before the event ended, cute art.
Jesus Fucking Christ>>895798Any good Manaka ones?
>>896009No event Manaka so far, aside from the Garupa event which I barely farmed.
In all seriousness, will the game make it to its first anniversary?
>>899442Only Bikinis can save them now
That profit isn't good is it? It's almost half of last month's.
>>901444I will save PuraOre
Incoming Swimsuits from the new update, starting with the SR Kaoruko
>>902298Swimsuit UR Naomi
>>902301Swimsuit Naomi limit break art
>>902304Karen UR Swimsuit
>>902305Karen UR swimsuit 2nd art.
>rank is up to #799 today after being below 1,000 for the last few daysI imagine it's because of the swimsuits?
>lv 000Silly game>>902840Hopefully. I was about to spend money, then I rolled Karen's UR with a single ticket
>PuraOre's profit in the first two days of July is already almost half its total profit for the whole of JuneSo this is the power of bikinis...
>>904716Swimsuits are a powerful thing, might as well use them. Thankfully they gave Kaoruko one. I hope there's a 2nd batch for Sachie and Manaka.
>>904716How do you see this
