And Point Event reward (May 8th)
Rate-up's also coming in!
>13 tries in a row for last map>Gundams keep ending up in the wrong place at the wrong timeHaha this is really epic, I'd think the whole thing was broken if I hadn't seen pictures of them not being there
>>842609sleeping on the job
>>842488is GFL fun? or is it yet another mobile grind simulator trying to pretend that it's a game?
JP beat us to the punch again. First with mecha and now with kemo.We're going to get it the other way around though kek.
>>842890New player here, it's a fucking work-management game. Everything takes real time, even training your characters.Want to train your doll skill, then forget about using that doll in battle for some hours. Want to deploy your team in battle, then forget about sending that team on logistic mission (expedition in this game)
>>842890It's fun for me but yes, it's grindy unless you take your time. Other than that, it's F2P friendly, which is the only reason I stuck with it.
>>842488Neat, not getting one of the characters last time around was my reason for ragequitting the game. 1500+ runs and no drop, can't even remember if it was Stella or Sei.
>>843156I am dead certain you are exaggerating, of not flat out lying. You literally get tokens to exchange for characters even if they don't drop.
>>843156Well now there are farm routes after beating their maps once. Sei took me about 40 tries.
>>843169>You literally get tokens to exchange for characters even if they don't dropThat wasn't always the case newfag.
>>843175I played the original but it was so long ago I don't remember if you're right or not. In any case, that's still over the top. My worst farm luck ever is about 150 runs, and most are less than 50.
>>842488Hey maybe i might pick up the game aga-->>842907nevermind.
>>843180I mean probably your last chance not to cripple your account if you haven't already. If you don't come back for Jill, don't bother coming back ever.
>>843180>I won't play a game because one of its dozens of costume sets which EN doesn't even have is kemonomichi
>>843181>trying to threaten me with bullshit game designyeah gacha tards are a special breed. enjoy your furies and OP lesbian bitches
>>843188>doesn't know anything about the series he's trying to shittalk>muh furry setK. You won't be missed.
>>843188GFL isn't even a gacha, you're guaranteed 100% collection if you play regularly.
Is anna graem good?
>>843257Yes she's decent, especially if you're relatively new because she costs less to raise than other aura/DPS fairies.
>>843188The good design is at least given for free.
>>842627Even maids need rest
These rapid succession of banners is murder on wallet.>>842622Which ones would those be? The one on the bottom circles around so you can wait a turn, and the top one, can't you send the team that's not being blocked?>>842972You should have enough dolls to shuffle them around as needed. I also leave the long timers for bedtime. Besides, unless you're min-maxing endgame content, maxing out skills is not that important.I'd also rate dorm expansion as one of the top things to spend your gems on. Multiple teams for deployment plus 24/7 logistics is much quality of life improvement.>>843169The welfare system is relatively new. The addition of dedicated farm routes is also new.
Flustered Dorothy would make a great skin for red Goliaths
>>843584And I love that they made a short backstory joke into a full plot point. Now I want art of Jill going full Okabe Rintaro
>tfw still no good gfl shooter game
>>843706Like one anon said before, your best hope is to do it yourself and to bypass IP just make the game a generic CoD clone, at least in aethetics, and then under other name, make a tailor made "mod" of the game using GF designs
>>843579Just beat Night 1-4 with three 5k squads, god this game is hard but satisfying as fuck.>I'd also rate dorm expansion as one of the top things to spend your gems on. Multiple teams for deployment plus 24/7 logistics is much quality of life improvement.Dorm? Do you mean Forward base camp? I'm having it at level 7 now. Btw for me I think echelon slots are much more important, atm I only have 5 echelon slots as slot 6 is expensive as fuck and this game is very stingy for new players, not to mention I cannot buy monthly card at all even if I want
>>844245Yeah just go with basecamp first, they're the resource faucets you need to get free couple hundred combat reports a month.
>>8442455-6 echelons is fine. I'm at 8 because I saved and gathered enough gems from the Jashin-chan collab, gameplay (dig though the achievements in the Index to try and target gems), and mostly remembering to do the social media post attempt thing (30 gems/week). There are guides out there that help you prioritize early-game gems and such, but what I personally recommend is to get to 6 echelons as quick as you can so you can have four doing logi rounds and two for actual combat, 3-4 dorms for battery income, what the other anon said about basecamp stuff, and go from there. By the way, post your friend ID. You'll get some achievements from amassing a small number of frens and it'll give you the ability to collect batteries from other people's public dorms. It doesn't take batteries from them; it's literally free batteries daily. There's also daily quests to visit a few dorms and collect batteries a few times which reward you with some small amount of resources, but as you know already every last bullet and MRE is valuable.
>>844245No, the dorms are the echelon slots. Also, decorating your dorms increases their comfort levels, which also increases your battery generation. In turn, batteries help your upgrade the rest of your base.But what other anon said about forward base camp is also right. Base camp was almost built for casuals for the amount of loot-to-effort ratio. You should also be able to clear out the black market items every month.>>844493>do the social media post attempt thing (30 gems/week).Yeah, that one is a hidden gem. It took me halfway into my commander career to discover that. You don't even need a facebook/twitter account.
I fucking love Jill
>>844633>Also, decorating your dorms increases their comfort levelsI see, no wonder after I rolled on supply and decorating the dorm with some item, the battery condenser goes up more quickly
As a new players, should I spam on production non stop during event, or just save my valuable rations?
>>844765Get as many good dolls as you can during the t-doll rateup. If you have all the main ones, focus on the fairy rate-up.
Stop at around 8k resources. 2k-5k if you feel like you won't be able to play as much in the next couple of days and just want to do logistics. Either way you won't do much with five stars until you have enough resources to dummy and level them. Aim for 3-4 stars this coming rate-up. Don't throw away too much on SG rolls.
>>844771He don't need to roll for sg with the free TCM.
>>844771>aim for 3-4 starsWhat the fuck are you saying????
>>844765You'll want to use the optimized recipes on the IOPwiki. I took a little bit different path than most people and invested in MGs and a few SGs early, but what this did was actually put me behind the curve because they eat resources to produce and MGs eat ammo like you wouldn't believe. The AR Team you get through gameplay will carry you through a lot of the chapters and do decently on night maps. For armored enemies on night maps, you really want RFs. They vary wildly on how best to build echelons around them; there's a couple where you have 1 RF and 4 HGs, even. Don't sweat that yet, though, and just try to roll for good HGs (they're cheap: 130-130-130-130 gets you every craftable one) and RFs. This is my own opinion, but it's what I should've done, hindsight being 20/20.
>>844765If you got resources to spare, sure, if you want, but there's nothing worth blowing your resources over during a rateup IMHO. Just do your daily productions.Besides, rateup is a lie.Don't do heavy productions. Not worth it (for newbies). 1 SG roll is worth 10-20 normal rolls, and you're not even guaranteed a SG, much less the one you want. Is 10 SG rolls worth giving up 100-200 normal rolls? I don't think so. You get free (and decent) SG's through story/career progression, and Vallhalla is also giving away a free SG. Think about the resources needed to roll for SAT8 (or LTLX or DP12). That's the worth of a TCM, which is why I'm hesitant over recommending grape over a SG with a TCM. Grape is great and all, but I think you can roll one in a hundred RF rolls.
>>845039>LTLX>finally look up what her skill does>blah blah blah fan shaped knockback blah blah>clears shields and buffs>CLEARS. SHIELDS. AND. BUFFS.So THIS is how you deal with Gundams and shit. TCM fucking spent.
>>845031>SGswhen I saw the cost of Heavy production, I said nope, no way I will build SGs atm, as this anon also said >>845039>For armored enemies on night maps, you really want RFs.Just finished Night 1-4 yesterday, yeah you're right, it's lucky that I somehow got lucky because I invest on a handful of 2* RFs and also SVD-98
>>845061I used her the clear doggos last theater.>doggos: SHIELDS UP>LTLX: lol no>BATTLE SUCCESS>>845065During the last rateup, I started with maybe 250k rations and literally went to almost zero to pull the 4 new SGs (super lucky), and that was a rateup specifically targeting those 4 SGs PLUS the anchor mechanic. Still in recovery mode...
Holy shit six months for my first maxed out HOC, and I still need to do a shit ton of iterations now.
>>845061>>CLEARS. SHIELDS. AND. BUFFS.>So THIS is how you deal with Gundams and shit. TCM fucking spent.LTLX clears shields (The ones with a white bar beneath the health bar), not Force Fields (the ones that show up above health bars) which are what Paradeus units have. You use HOCs for Doppelsolders and their ilk.
>Kalina's mother's day message ;_;
>>845245And then she follows it up with a sales pitch. Kalina really likes money.
>>845194Ah, right. The force fields are what M200 is for IIRC, plus HOCs if I can deploy any.
>>845276Only HOCs (and some Coalition units when used as fire support) can break force fields, M200 is for evasive armored enemies, which includes the Patroller, which is a big fucking asshole that has force fields, high evasion, armor, and shields, though not all at once thankfully.Though it's possible to kill some enemies that have force fields without breaking them; force fields are a percent damage reduction, so if an enemy doesn't start with 100% force field, you can still damage them, but it'll take longer to kill them.
>>844784>>845245I want to give GF2 Mommy Kalina a huge hug!
Finally got her
>>845997I spent all my resources on trying to get better MGs and only got dupes of the ones I had lel.
>>846004She's all you really need
>>846004Just got MK48. I did not know there was another doll that's as horny as DSR
>>846004But, you can't produce Kord...
>>846925I already farmed Kord. I was just hoping for a Negev or at least a Lewis.
Sell this game to me. How F2P friendly is it? Does it have an energy system? Is there a steady difficulty increase or does it suddenly spike and you have to pull good things to continue?
>>848140Do you care about ranking? If not then you're fine.
>>848140Pretty friendly. You get a steady feed of premium currency by hitting a share button and not actually sharing anything once a week, and there's some that you get from clearing maps once per map.No energy system, instead there's four main resources that you'll use for deploying/supplying/repairing squads and also rolling for new units, but unless you go full retard you won't have any issues there.Almost all units can be obtained by either rolling the construction and crying when you see IDW the thousandth time, or as drops from maps.The money sink is the costume gacha, but costumes are just costumes and have zero bearing on gameplay. The only real never-evers are collab units, unless a rerun happens. There's also a somewhat recently added system for using certain enemy units that's massive whale bait, but you can get decent stuff out of it without ever spending anything.Other uses for your actual money are echelon/squad slots (Up to 14, I don't remember how many you start with), dorms (Mainly to speed up upgrading some systems that you'll eventually max out given enough time), and storage for units/equipment. However, if you obtain any unit once, you can get them back for a small resource cost if you get rid of them. Difficulty ramps up steadily, although certain units help against some things, the more important thing is proper team building to deal with certain threats. Events tend to have variable difficulty, letting you pick between an easy or hard version for each map.Be warned, there is a metric fuckton of text/plot once you pass the early parts, if you're allergic to reading you might have a bad time.
>>848140Friendly to a point where I've been playing for three years and only NOW I'm eager to spend money out of misplaced gratitude because some of those costumes are making me act up. The only time it becomes F2P unfriendly outside of SF Capture is if you decide to spend your free acheivement gems on the wrong things like, instead of buying important stuff like more echelons and armory space, you use them on repair bay slots, speeding up base upgrades, and buying store costumes which in turn will limit how much you can get out of the game without paying a dime.However, you still need to understand that there's a lot of waiting going on. It's a gacha game at heart, but at least you won't get paywalled from completing story/collab events.
>>848140It's f2p friendly and has no energy. There are spikes in difficulty but it's not a gacha so no need to luck out on a rare character.
This costume is pure SEX!
>>848140It's very F2P friendly since the only "premium" gacha is for cosmetic costumes whereas all non-event units and equipment are obtained by spending in-game resources on a psuedo-gacha. The special event units/equips are earned through grinding.The only issue is that infrastructure (more room for units, equipment, extra dorms, etc.) is locked behind a premium currency. You can earn the premium currency through gameplay, so it's not too bad earning better infrastructure.tl;dr there's no need to spend money unless you want costumes or want to speed through infrastructure grinding
>>848140Like the other anons said, it's fairly f2p friendly. I've spent some money on buying shit for the whale trap >>848173mentioned, but I don't mind because I've enjoyed the fuck out of the game and events after the first couple of chapters. Don't get hung-up on having to have high-tier units unless you're going for a specific raifu or you want to be a tryhard in Ranking on the events that have it; even IDW (spazzy cat using a bizarre, failed British SMG/autopistol thing) can carry you through to like chapter 8 or so if you have a decent team around her. This pic is related, as she has the same craft time as the pistol woman pictured. She is the very definition of "extra." You'll either love her or hate her with a fiery passion. The Dolls' graphical design also has nothing to do with their capabilities: there's a few tig ol bitties gals that are pretty blah and there are flatties that are God-tier. If you do decide to play, get into this collab event as much as possible - there's some great collab dolls; Jill is reportedly God-Ascendant tier. You probably won't have enough time to farm the event resource to get all the items, Dolls, SPEQs, etc. but you can get a good chunk still. Dolls first, SPEQs second maybe, the Anna Graem fairy next (at least one, you can buy up to three), and then the Rad Shiba doggo.
Shit rape up200 QP spent, only 2 OLD gold equipsI just wanted some flashes, is it too much to ask chong
I have 2 normal lvl 100 vectors, x5, sl 10. My go-to off tank for arsmg teams.Worth getting 2 more Vectors to lvl 100 sl10, but x1, just for dragging 13-4 more efficiently?
>>849053Unless you're a complete resourcefag or tilebuff fag, you're better off probably using another molotov doll like Neural Uzi.
>>849053Don't dupenigger, just use a vector and Uzi
>sei drops in the first clearFeels good being a luckchad
>>849803Now roll her dress
what are the "must have dolls from the core selection? i got alot of the girls already i just cant decide who i need from whats left
>>849946Get the best 5* SG you don't already have.
>>849946If you already have most of them, you've probably gotten all the meta dolls.
>>849946I assume you mean True Core Mask selection?SG > Grape > MG > RF/AR/SMGHG gacha is cheap enough. Some might say waifu > SG, but these are obviously beta commanders who can't afford feeding an SG waifu.
>>84980327 attempts so far without Sei. GODOMMOT. And this with a damn rescue fairy blasting.
>>850024Either at 30 or 60 reruns. From all the collabs, Angelica took the most for me to drop (67 reruns)
>>850034>67 runsDamn dude. That's absurd. That's a crazy amount of resources even if you're HG farming.
>>850024>Chicken Breast EX>Attempts: 147>max links SeiA416+2-3HG buffers/XP earners for scratchless runs
>>850052Almost getting full links for Sei too. 112 runs in.
>tfw no muscular white knight cyberpunk gf to go to a bar with
>>850052Maybe it's because I'm sick, but I looked at a guide for the latter EXs and was like, "fuck that I'm good." Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow and will have the patience/time/lack-of-headache to deal with them.>>850034Got 1 Sei on Run 30 exactly just a few minutes ago.>>850062She's quite toned with the armor off, and I think she's good people besides.
>>850062>Catch me later, I'll buy you a beer
>>850064A guide to clear EX maps for the first time, or a guide to farm? Because the farm is 5-6 check 1 turn AFK runs. The early EX maps are damage free, so you run them as fast as you can clear armory space. The later ones are more expensive and time-consuming to run, so I think the normal maps are the way to farm.
>>850072To clear them. I watched one for Pioneer EX and nah, I'm good.
>>850092You are not going to cope with proper events. No wonder Hokor has cancelled all of them but one for the past year and a bit.
It's FAIRY RATE UP TIME
>>850223>>850225Aww shit never mind, was too excited
Yeah well fuck you too, RNGesus.
>>850118Funny thing is I cleared all of Dual Randomness including all EX stages. I dunno why, again it's probably partly because I'm sick, but these EXs I have no patience for.
>>850092Can you not clear the bottom gundams even with 2-3 HOC supports? The top deathstack you can just lure away with a dummy echelon that retreats and comes back. No S rank, but it's meaningless here. I quite hated/enjoyed that map as I played my own game of how many HOCs can I squeeze in to completely FUCK OVER all those gundams that keep endlessly spawning from the bottom.
>>850629I suppose I could unleash Wifetecht and BGM-71. And copy Dummy shenanigans.
>have one spare anna graem after both valhalla runs>the other anna is already maxed out>this leftover only gives 10 points toward upgradesWhat's the point?
So apparently the next collab is Zombieland Saga
How do these fags expect me to recognize any of the tdolls if they arent dressed in thongs, vsk in a hat is pretty hot thoughhttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=E8KIxrXRsHs&feature=youtu.be
I'm marrying Junko you guys
>>851811Shit wrong thread sorry about that
>>851814How dare you.
Is there a newb pastebin guide somewhere?
This piece of trash doesn't even deserve to be a 2* doll.
>>852024She's hot tho.
>>852024>gets blowd the fuck away>still has trigger discipline>eyes still on-targetI'd say she's kind of badass. Not every Doll can be LTLX or SAT-8 OP-tier.>>852069Is also correct.
>>852069>>852084These SKKs have never met a real woman.
>>852104>implying I don't have Bad Cop For Life loaded permanently
>>852104>a real womanI bet she can't even rock a formal gown
>>851618Another DJMAX-esque themed story? Not my cup of tea but I'm game for it.>>851732I can only imagine how GF1 collab dolls would look like with those graphics.
>>851732Not sure if it's the outfit or the model but VSK kinda looks weird when she's doing her action scene.
4th Anniversary Stats
Yeah, I don't think the top 5 maps won't be changing anytime soon...
>>852590>>852591>>852592>AdjutantsPleb tiers>Leaders>Most frequently usedwtf. I think reddit was right.

>>852637I didn't expected famas to be in any top
what's the lore reason for them all being girls?
>>852813Shikikan isn't a homo
>>852590Finally, 416 isnt a second place
>>852590I want to see some Sangvis stats. Most Oathed Ringleader, most used Machine-type, most used Doll-type, etc.>>852566I bet she'd be down for some kinky shit and looks like she'd be a switch.
>300k for all ressources.Parachute fairy here I come.
>>853063Enjoy your 1 or 2 paras.
>>852813Like with all odd things with T-Dolls, you can probably blame Havier.
>>852813boipussy technology hadn't been perfected yet.
>>852813>>853087Lana Smithee be predicting this collab from years ago.Also low-key reminds me of that one Moon Knight story where the main terrorist guy autistically needed a black, white, and asian harem trio
>>850629I hope someone made art of ol' K getting a good ending in his dreams
1 Para 2 Constructions 2 Combos7/8 Slots cooking stillAnd I can still do another 62 rolls of 2/2/2/1 T3
>>851618I know I'm late but yooooooI did not expect this and I am so happy about it
>>853288Ooooh, they're androids. Ok. Like YorHa
>>852069>>852084That doesn't make up for her getting dummied so easily doing The Last Rain In The World runs while another newbie SG, 30+ levels lower, in the center row, lasts until the final battle without even going into damaged state.I had to go all architect mode just to salvage the rest of the echelon's feelings.
4 Fairies are enough for me as new player atm, right?
>>854144Taunt is great
>>854146nice, i guess so too
>>854144SL10 taunt fairy will make lots of difficult battles a breeze. Don't know about your training data inventory, but it's worth it.
>>854144It's not about the number, it's about the rarity. Those are all good fairies though, try to get one of them to 3* ASAP and you'll notice a huge boost in your echelon performance.
>>854136Damn. I wonder why she had that issue? Bug in her stats? That's crazy.>>854144The Command and Taunt fairies are excellent to start working with. I like Airstrike, but she's expensive to run as a new player. I haven't used Artillery or Rocket since they were reworked a bit, so I can't speak to those.
Dawn of the final day. Don't forget to clear the store!
>>854636I didn't farm even once, simply declaring the event over 2 days gave me all I could use from the store (Rad Shiba and beer).
Playing the collab and>items exceeded?
>>854636I already got everything the first time around, so I just grabbed some beer and a dog and called it a day.
>>854981You have earned as much of the event currency as you are allowed to in a day. Restart the client.
Just finishing the collab at the last possible moment and wow, they dropped a reference to Gloria at the endI thought I was the only one that remembered her
>do a fuckload of farming>completely forget to check when banked XP is fullI have no idea how much XP I've effectively wasted tonight.
>>854981I really wish they were more upfront about this. Newfag here and I missed out on a character because the daily limit had no indicator besides hitting it. Could've done something similar to what they do with friend batteries where they show the total you've gotten for the day out of the total you can get for the day. Would've been able to plan around that, rather than assume I'd be able to do some last minute grinding after getting Jill.
>>855364Didn't encounter this news in my playthrough. Must have missed this.
>>854981>>855814Those would be the daily event fragments, which you can collect 80 per day. They're pretty upfront about it IMHO. If you just discovered it now after almost 3-4 weeks of the event running, I dunno what to say.This is not to be confused with other event tokens that drop which are unlimited and can also be exchanged in the shop.
>>855832I started less than two weeks ago. That image is from the Twitter, which I don't really use, and I had to scroll pretty far to even find it. Especially unhelpful if you aren't even expecting any sort of limit. It should be indicated in the game itself.
These are dupes. What do?
>>856140I still have my DJMAX dupes lying around. At least they have different outfits.Actually, I've got GSG dupes too (at least the good ones). It's collab anxiety.
>>856140I keep some spares to use them for Echelon 1 as Dorm dolls.
Is VA-11 Hall-A worth it btw?
>>856464For a VN, it's short and sweet. I enjoyed the hell out of it but only since I'm a fan of story games in general. Part of why I enjoyed it was because it made me reminisce over old relationships and a few gosling momentsIf you like VNs, you'll like this.
>>856464Why wouldn't it be worth it? Wasn't that hard an event, get nice dolls, equip, fairies, etc...
>why am I out of space >eight (8) IDWsWell, that would do it.
>>856140Obviously consume them to fund fairy crafting and avoid dupeniggering.
What's better for anna, damage 2 or fervor?
>>856565Why the hate
Why does this game need 5 threads?/e/h/u/vmg/vg/
>>856581Because gun waifus
>>856579He was abused by clones when he was little
>>856535>imgtopkekShe is... prolific.
>>856581More popular than you think
>>856567Very generally speaking, Fervor is better if you expect the fight to last more than 12-16 secs.>>856581I can't browse /e/h/u/ at work.
>>856567Fervor if you plan on using her in long difficult fights
