Gundam Battle Gunpla Warefare info- there's been an update, the parts for the game original suit, the Gundam Artemis, have been buffed to the point that it's melee weapon Arondight is currently better than several weapons of higher rarity I have right now. Also, apparently you can make a free roll once a day on both of the Standard Gunpla Capsule banners along with the Friend Point. I really thought it was only one or the other.

Technology annoys me.

Huh, yeah. My Arondoit (or whatever it's called) has stronger melee than my 4* Beam Scythe from Deathscythe, which is even a level higher.

Every other stat is way lower, though.

Love that they've finally given us Emblems other than numbers and the MS designations. Since I don't think anyone is really straight building anything, I feel like those were pretty worthless. But the AEUG logo? Nice. Bring on Londo Bell.

So I finally got all the parts to the Titans Mk. II and... I am disappoint. I was hoping it would mean I could just make any suit into Titans colors and for some reason it's... more of a Psyco Gundam colors. It's black and red and gold and for some reason has things like a fully red red feet and V-fin and gold hands when I try to make a Titan colored suit. So sad and inexplicable.

It varies from part to part. Maybe you've got a part that doesn't agree with the scheme

There are a few color schemes that just look weird on the set of Exia Arms I have, it will only change the upper part of the arms but everything below the elbow is white, or vice versa.

Technology annoys me.

I mean, yeah. It's just so weird because there's basically no red on the Mk. II and very little gold but it's overpowering.

Particularly weird is the V-fin... one would think the one thing that would translate to most Gundams would be "make the V-Fin the same color as the base model."

Also, I wish that the free capsules were "one each day" rather than "one every 24 hours." I mean, I get why they did it (to be inconvenient), but... well, I'd rather it be convenient.

But still. Better than New Gundam Breaker. Which is sad.

In my experience with this game so far spears and polearms seam to have lower attack than other weapons of comparable rarity, but make up for it with more range and buffing stats besides attack to an impressive degree.

So on top of Urdr Hunt the app will also have a second game? Not sure what to think.

[up] I'm not even sure what the second game even is. Either an adaptation of the original show or a new story with the original show's cast?

Hoping on the latter if I'm honest. Maybe we'll get to see the Ryusei-Go 2 and what happened to it. Bonus points if we learn about more of the surviving Gundam and Valkrja frames.

I'm looking forward to the next event. Shining Gundam and Sengoku Astray are the rare drops, with Sword Strike being the purchasable theme mobile suit.

That's three suits I like, though unfortunately Sword Strike's color scheme doesn't exactly broaden my repertoire much. "Oh boy, it's a standard Gundam color scheme but with some random baby blue on the arms that will absolutely look completely random and inexplicable on anything but the Sword Strike's arms!"

So double post, but feel like sharing my thoughts on the latest event:

The Good:

  • Sword Strike is apparently a pretty decent F 2 P unit. Its torso has good stats, its arms are shockingly good for a shooting build, and it's overall aesthetics lend it to most builds.
  • It's easy. And quick. Compared to the Gusion event that was a marathon, these are much quicker and easier. Not quite "can beat Super Hard on Auto-Play" easier, but enough that I can beat Super Hard without relying on a 45k Relief Gunpla.
  • Emblems! Yay! OMNI ones, which are pretty cool looking.
  • There's a rotating daily mission, right now you have to use a full Sword Strike Gundam, which I find pretty cool.

The bad:

  • The new pilots are terrible.
  • I didn't get any Shining Gundam or Sengoku Astray parts.

The ugly:

  • The Shining Gundam and Sengoku Astray parts are apparently overall mediocre, with the exception of the Shining Gundam's arms for the Shining Finger Sword. And the odds of getting that are, well, not great.

Held a 10x pull back specifically for when Shining Gundam dropped. Got nothing worth talking about. I guess I'll have to hope to get it in the freebie pull after the event ends.

[up] Once events end, the 4* rares get added to the Standard Capsules (Or Standard 2). Of which you get a single free pull a day.

So for example, I just got Shenlong's Beam Glaive today from a free pull. Not as useful (since a lot of the utility of the 4*s mostly comes from their multiplier), but it's nice that they're not Lost Forever, especially for Free-to-play people.

Since I didn't get a Sengoku or Shining part, this week is going to be a sloooooooooooog trying to get enough Sword Coins for all the Emblems as well as all the Red Awakening Parts. I have enough Haro chips for a second pull, but the mediocrity of the parts in general leads me to be meh about it as the odds I'm going to get something I want are so low. Even with Skip tickets, getting the... 1910 necessary Sword Coins to get all the basics (60 for Sword Strike parts, 800 for each of the two red Awakenings, 250 for Emblems) will take forever at 6 Sword Coins a pop on Very Hard (since Super Hard isn't quite easy enough for me to let Auto-Play use it and win).

I suppose I could use Skip Tickets, but even at 14 a Pop on Super Hard that 137 Skip Tickets and missions.

... okay, those Awakenings are not being gotten. And I have so many extra Colossus Coins.

With the release of Chapter 6 of Gundam Breaker Mobile, we now know that Touma Aizen's Customized G-Self is named "Code ϕ". I really like that name.

EDIT: [down] Well I'm just slow on the uptake then, aren't I?

It's been available as rare drops in the hard Free Missions for around three weeks now.

I really hope that Gundam Extreme Vs. 2 gets a console port. And that said console port gets released overseas. I'd like to think that Versus (2017) contributed something.

Here's hoping New Gundam Breaker didn't ruin that chance. At least it also did poorly in Japan, but I could easily see it dissuading Bandai Namco from bothering here, knowing it left such a bad taste in people's mouths.

Honestly, I think it rests on the success of Gunpla Battle.

Gunpla Battle is hit and miss with me. It looks great and plays fine, but it feels really predatory with how it doles out parts. The balance with freemium games is tricky.

I mean, it is predatory. That said, I'm really okay wiht it considering I haven't spent a penny and I have a super viable build.

It just sorta sucks that, paying or not, it's basically legitimately impossible to get a gacha suit. So once they do, say, release a suit I absolutely adore, best I can hope is "gee, I sure hope I get some of the pieces."

Like... kinda a dick move not to just let someone buy the Shining Gundam. I don't like the idea of having to pay to win, but I like people being able to pay to get their favorite Gundams.

At the very least, I hope that SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays gets the ball rolling again. I'd love to see more G Generation games make it overseas.
