Dear New Players
Hello new waifu fans. You are joining at a good time. We are currently being showered with rewards. This game is fairly generous, but a word of warning from someone that joined last Christmas during the last reward showering -
Onyx is literally the most precious thing in this game and you should absolutely hoard it until you know where to use it.
Yes, I too like seeing awakens child's, but when the new ragna/raid/wb starts, and that one attacker needs 22,000 onyx to get from +6 to +7 on their slide skill, I promise, you will thank me.
As It's Time for a new Ragna
It's a good time to talk about common courtesy. We all love the King Jelly bosses. And the desire to click on one when you see it is high. BUT before you click on someone else's Jelly King, check to see if the discoverer has attacked it.
Has the discoverer had a chance to damage the jelly before you swoop in and grab the rewards? Would you want your Kings stolen by your friends list?
Think before you click my dudes. That is all for Vv's ettiquite tips.
On the Other Hand
The heck is with this pricing? The 45 dollar devil pass is already pretty high. But now there are two more temporary 45 dollar passes? Ok I guess? You do you, but it seems like a weird business move when global players already feel that the devil pass is barely worth it. But maybe that's just my opinion.
I've Never Wanted Something Fixed So I Could Spend Money But
I really want that kitty tiddy Waifu skin. But if they pull another kemono banner, I will continue to not spend money, which, if that's what the devs want...to actively discourage their global players from spending, cool, I guess? Thanks for helping me save money I'd otherwise dump into digital waifus. I genuinely hope they do the right thing here. Jeeze, I've never had to appeal to a company to get them to let me give them money.
Devs, this is the right way to do a banner. Exclusive units or not. Again, good job. You have not earned my trust (and there for money) back yet. The anime tiddy should bring us together, not creat a rift between the players and the devs.
So good job with the pool limits, and please let this limited pool serve as the basis going forward for all summons.
Remember, a negative memory is more effective at deterance than a positive. So when you pull for, say, Jupiter and pull a Mars, it's not rewarding. I wouldn't turn a unit down, but I pulled x 5* not Y 5*. That stigma has kept me from summoning for Jupiter after day 2. I COULD get Jupiter. But I did not. I got some other 5*. But that's almost more insulting than not pulling anything.
To:dr - thank you for remembering that you can limit the summon pool to the relevant units. More of that please.
Let's Take A Second
And let's acknowledge that the devs dome did good with the may event. That's a plus.
Devs, good job.
Now, you aren't forgiven yet. Let's not get confused. Your practices have been abysmal, and the crickets are quite deafening as we wait for someone to open a LINE of communication with the people that play the game.
So good start, but please keep trying to un-EA yourself. And for real, talk to us.
When moot, reddit, and Facebook players are in agreement, you know you done gone full EA.
I accept that this patch won't be changed. But I'm willing to go very them this last benefit of the doubt. Let's see what the next patch is. If it's more of the same then I don't really know if I can play a game where the player base is considered nothing.
I do like this game('s waifus) and I know that it doesn't have to go tits up. Call me overly optimistic, but if this backlash ultimately makes this a better game, then I'll be happy to continue playing.
We have all had our bitchfits and it was cathartic, even for me. But now it really is in the hands of the devs. Will not buying things send message? Will the outrage have an effect? Time will tell.
But I would argue for temperance now as things settle a bit. Vote with your wallets now that we have finished yelling. Insults (be it directed at other contentious players or at the devs) are the best way to ensure that nothing happens, so from here on let's be adults and do this democratically. Yeah?
(Unrelated but anyone know the artist for this pic?)
Just Talk To Us
Devs, my dudes, your board is on fire. This is a fact. These are people that WANT to give you money. I want to give you money. But your practices are unreasonable. And your silence is deafening.
We don't want free units. We don't demand compensation or petty things. All we want is for you to talk to us.
What are your plans?
Why did you do the banner this way?
Why change around resources?
Why rework rewards?
You are trying new things and you are a business. We get it. But why? Let us work WITH you to make this a game that let's us as a community support it.
It's not too late folks. Do it for the tiddy. Do it for Maat.
More Unpopular Opinions
Further unpopular opinion:
While I don't agree with this, it's possible this was a move that was meant to be pro-consumer. What if the banners focus on the kemono unit only. No expended summon pool. That way you would be garunteed to get the 5 star you are pulling for.
If you look at it from the perspective that this might allow us to focus on the units that we want.
Now, if this is a banner that is broken into three AND it includes the full summon pool with just a bump to the special units summon rate...well, then I must reluctantly throw my support behind team boycott.
But waiting to see where this goes before we all pitchfork it up might be best.
The Limited Banners are Kinda Disheartening.
I get it, the point is to make money ultimately. But limited banners with units that are optimal that you also mix with the regular summon pool is a great way to kill any desire to pull. I'm sure some people don't care since they whale on banners. And if that's your thing, good for you. But when I pull Aurora or A.I. for the 5th time on the Calypso banner? Man, it doesn't make me wanna buy luck boxes or whatever. It makes me want to put the game down. Can we maybe just keep the limited summon pool and the "normal" pool separate while they are relevant?
Tl;Dr - I need Calypso not A.I. plz fix.
As a lifelong fan of tiddy, I often find myself looking at art of characters I like. But I don't see a lot of art here. So allow me to present Waifu Maat to help change that.
Artist and source:
Mammon bless you, artists.
Me again. With questions. Since I assumed it was gonna be a dark boss, I built fire attackers to use with Shide. Assuming the boss is anything but water, is there a point where Shide and fire attackers would affect the projected back row?
Asking for a friend that doesn't have two of the suggested attackers.
