    I would change it to maybe you spend the points to unlock a tier of upgrades across a unit family. Like say you spend 5000EP and you can unlock all the FFBE story units to 25%, and so on. Maybe the final tier is unlocked by the SBB.

    They just need to make it less cumbersome. Remove keys, raise the daily again, and remove the cap or raise it 50x.

    Just because someone disagrees with you does not mean they're naive. That's super goosey.

    Are enlightenment keys the new 'lol beast meat compensation'? I find the excessive cynicism tiring, to say the least.

    You don't think they'll throw a few keys in bundles to sweeten the pot? It won't be the main thing, but it'll be that extra something that pushes a couple of people to buy instead of pass. As for compensation, sure, why not? The gold key 120000 currency in the MK shop. That's at least a day of farming. It's worth way more than the energy pots we usually get. If we get a gold key as compensation, well, that would be generous.

    I don't think I'm being cynical here. And if I am, it's because this game invites cynicism. I don't doubt that most game developers that aren't out to fleece you from your money. Most of them just like making fun games. It's different with gacha, though. Gacha games are literally gambling. The game mechanics are there to support the gambling. I don't think it's cynical to suspect the casino is manipulating me to get my money.

    My family has a history of gambling addiction. Gambling has caused a lot of difficulties for me. Shitting all over the casino is a way for me to remind myself not to get sucked in too much. To never think of the casino as my friend. That the free drinks come with strings. It works, but not that well because I'm still playing this game.

    The thing is, this game is pretty good when it's just strategy and planning and fighting interesting bosses. It's just that everything is tainted by transparent manipulation. And Gumi added another layer on top of that. It annoys me a lot.

    But if my bitching is getting to the point that it's starting to bother people, I'll try to tone it down.

    Here's kind of the rub with the whole SSB/enlightenment thing for me. The series units will have innate abilities that you can unlock before the fight - cool. Those units will also get a boost in stats against that boss - also cool. They've been powercrept so hard that it barely puts them on par with current top-tier units - meh. Why go through all of the hastle to upgrade and gear those units when you can just use your current geared team? It becomes a different story if you have some holes in your team and this completes your team, but that is not the case for me.

    I made the mistake of using some keys and was getting close to the cap so I awoke LM Fina's DC ability and MS Nichol's DM buff. I know there will be fights later on that require multiple healers so I know she will get some use and MS Nichol is still used in my party since I only have 6* Sylvie.

    Well some of them get buffed to meta; DKC for example. I like the idea, but it's execution sucks.

    I'm doing an experiment today. I turned on Nox to get the login bonus, and then I turned it off again.

    Every once in a while, I turn on Nox again and look at my full energy bars and shit. I just look at them.

  • ShadowfireShadowfire Vermont, in the middle of nowhereRegistered User regular
    Don't let energy bars rule your life. I haven't used enhancement orbs since the second day. Let my energy max out today. Play when it's fun.

    Whole-hearted agree. The only reason I use a lot of my NRG/orbs/NRG pots/whatever is because I'm often up at odd hours with an infant and need some repetitive task to do while he falls back asleep. I'll often just let me NRG bar stay full and use it when I feel like it, and I've never really felt like I was missing out or was lacking resources during an MK event or whatever.

    Can't remember how long ago it was, but I'd shifted away from getting frustrated by NRG / raid orbs being full because work was busy or whatever. Nowadays, it doesn't bother me as much. I will login and use some NRG or whatever when I have the time, but I'm not too concerned if I'm staying right on top of it or not. I'll try to keep up on raid orbs when there's a raid, but raid orvs are prettt quick to use up.

    Yeah a year ago I would lose sleep if I let that bar fill. I hated that I let it bother me that much.

    Kaito and Tsukiko are (partially?) datamined. Tsukiko is decently straightforward, with her CD and LB having some cool buffs that grow over time and unlock her quad cast.

    Kaito, however, is very interesting. His big damage comes not from his chaining (his modifiers are pretty weak), but from the damage over time effect he can build up. I'm not sure if each instance stacks, but both of his CD moves, his LB, and a lot of his kit give differing strengths of DoT, with his LB giving a 50x mod DoT effect for three turns. If the DoTs stack then man, he's gonna but putting out some good damage in a very unique way. Edit: Datamine suggests the DoTs do, in fact, stack.

    Consider me excited for these units.

    Looks like the August unit upgrade is coming in maintenance? Aloha Lasswell's changes are being added, he looks...ok? *Shrug* I should stop looking at the stuff before maintenance is closer to done since info is likely not final.

    2 STMR tickets
    1 silver key
    0 prisms
    0 5* tickets
    0 5+1 tickets
    Buncha crap

    Gonna wait and do the rest later

    803 tickets got me 5 STMR tickets, 6 silver keys, 11 4* tickets, and 90 3* tickets.
    Platinum summons got me 15 STMR tickets (3 sets of 5), and 2 5* EX tickets (Nalu #3 and Sephiroth #7).

    A solid meh though getting 1/5th of an STMR feels like it'll pay off later down the line.

    Life is pain.

    Platinum coins turned into two 5* tickets and 30 STMR tickets. The things I wanted least. Oh well!
    Edit: the 5+1s dropped No Good Jake #5 and Kurasame #5.

    I think I got around 1100 tickets as well. I'm not in a hurry to pull all of those at this time. I may pull a few hundred today to test my luck.

    5* I got from non 5* tickets:

    Lightning #3 + #4
    Auron #1
    Rinoa #5
    Kid Rydia #1
    CG Cid #1

    5* tickets were:

    Lila #3
    Shadow Lord #2
    Noctis #3
    Squall #2
    Sylvie #2

    Only good ones were Sylvie for her seven, Lightning for her STMR and Auron for his TMR.

    Daily half price pull was a rainbow (off banner, as is tradition): Prompto #3. At least I still have moogles for him from his raid, so free TMR.

    I ended up with 2 5* EX tickets and 1 guaranteed 5* 10+1 ticket from my Platinum pulls. Went ahead and used them now just in case I'd get something to run through the item dungeon while its still open. Got Aerith #1, Aileen #s, Circe #3 (still had moogles from her raid, so free Facade of Balance), and, finally, after holding on to her moogles forever, Fryevia #1. Now to run her sword through the item dungeon a few times.

    I also got about 130 EX tickets and 7 5+1 tickets, but I'll do them later.

    1 5* Ticket for Fryevia #3

    With 4 Prism Moogles now, threw a Tomb Raider into one. Are FlammiesDrum, Stoss Spear, BlackFox Mask, Nature Loving Spellblade or Farwell worth another?

    Flammie's Drum is a great item for ATK units. You can't go wrong with that depending on what you currently have.
