Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

Don't think so, on my previous game i had 2 rares from scouting only and i was rank 19. Now i'm rank 13 and i got 4 rares in a single day, 3 from normal scouting. Either i'm super lucky or it's just the statistics really.

Though it's perfectly fine to be paranoid when you don't get any. In fact i think this is their intention.

Well. Ran out of LP. Time to sleep for now.

Alright I've played this game for a bit now and hopefully some of these questions/concerns of mine aren't me just being ignorant but here goes.

 

1) No iphone 5/5s, iPod 5 support? Seriously? It /says/ it's optimized for iPhone 5 in the app store, yet when I play the game there are two black bars on the sides which are the size of the older generation of iDevices. Not that big of a deal but really it says it's optimized for it, but it's not. Hopefully this is just a setting thing that I've missed

 

2) The Kotori Event. The rules don't exactly say how you are supposed to get the Event Kotori. Do you just play the game and there is a chance she will drop from something while the event is active?

 

3) I perfect FC'd a couple of songs and I only got a C score rank. WAT? Does this have anything to do with my team's levels and smile/cool/pure rating? I was just completely confused why I got only a C for a full combo.

 

Overall this game is pretty awesome. It's nice to play when I'm not by a computer or out and I have my phone on me. The songs are cute and can imagine I'll really get into this game once I figure it all out.

Don't know about 1 since I have android

 

2) The event works with event points. You gain event points to rank higher in the event and you'll gain rewards as you rank up higher.

When you finish a song it tells you how many event points you earned and how many are left to the next reward.

 

In the Kotori event you gain points by collecting the macarons during the songs and by completing the special event song.

 

To play the event song just go on Live and select B-Sides on the top right, it'll take you to the event's song. Finishing this gives you more event points than by just collecting macarons.

But to play these songs you need to spend the macarons you earn so yeah expect a lot of grinding.

 

If you want to know the rewards you've earned and how highly ranked are you on the event just go on home and press the Kotori event banner and check the rewards you've earned and how many are there to earn or check the rankings.

 

3) Yes it does have to do with your team's smile/cool/pure level

 

You can FC a song but if the team's attribute for that song isn't high enough you won't get enough score to get an A or an S rank for score. 

 

To counter this, make new units using the auto formation and select the attribute you want that formation to be based on. The game will automatically generate the best team with that attribute from all the cards you currently have. You can make 5 different units so just make one for each.

 

Make sure when you select a song you also select the corresponding team for that song's attribute. You can select the team after selecing the song. Each song has an icon corresponding to the attribute.

Pink: Smile

Blue: Cool

Green: Pure

 

The more of that song's attribute points your team has the higher you'll score. 

Leveling up cards by using regular practice raises their attributes too.

 

Hope this helps~

Ahh, so that explains why some songs have pink rings and some songs have green rings. Makes sense.

 

Well ok, that event Kotori looks soooo cute; I must have her!

Well, if you're anything like me you average B combo / A score (score is really easy on it, but I do have a stacked team) and get about 206 EP per play; FC and S is 233 so it's really not that much more.

 

Considering the Kotori is an SR spending ~10 love gems or more on LP refills isn't unreasonable if you're not going to get 11k points otherwise I'd say

I want to save up all the gems for the 50 gem draw because i'll never get there otherwise so I'm not spending them on refills.

Unless it's a Nico or Maki event I'm not going to spend them. Even if Kotori is a SR .

 

I'll just hope I get there with effort and time.

I must suck at the game because I can't seem to even pass the event song on Hard. Those double notes don't work well with my mind :P

Although, my Pure team is my strongest, so if I do pass it, I should get a good score.

You must believe in the alpaca gods.

Also people should totally read my great post on the history of NicoMaki. I actually wrote 90% of it off of the top of my head.

I also read there's a story in the game focusing on them. I just hope the person who said it isn't kidding.

I read it earlier. That is quite something, I'm impressed by how much you know about Love Live. I should probably watch the anime to understand it though lmao.

I'm not that knowledgeable in the rest of the members but NicoMaki is my ultimate obsession so i know almost everything regarding them.

Needless to say Love Live is one of my favorite anime as well and everyone should totally watch it~

When i started i didn't know exactly what to expect. It didn't have anything special or inovative. It's solely character focused but man did the characters grow on me. By the time it was done i was just craving for more~

I was already playing SIF, the Japanese version so you can imagine my excitement when it finally got localized in English. I downloaded it the day it came out.

Yeah this goes on unhealthy levels in my case. But you should definitely watch the anime. I'm going to stop rambling now.

If you find yourself with ~9k event points close to the end of the event, remember you can pop love gems for an LP refresh.

Normally this is really silly, but not so when an SR is on the line! Each should provide at least ~225 EP assuming you're pro enough to beat the event song on hard, meaning if you use 10 of them you're probably looking at at least 2k points. Of course you need to do this close to the end, as your rank will be highest then and shit will be more efficient.

 

You probably knew this already.

 

As for me? You want to know about me right? I've got 9k event points and like, 1.5 plays of the event song (so about ~9.3k if I liquidate all my assets). currently top 1k looks to be 11k, so I'm pretty unlikely to catch up with them (come to think of it, maybe I'll have to spend gems to maintain top 2k... ah well, we shall see how this plays out.) Looks like I am probably safe for highest 2k scorewise at least at 138k (and score is likely to not be as volatile as the event ranking - well, I might be able to score significantly higher if I get a good run...)

 

All in all looking good, especially since I can nerd out ~185 LP a day at least (I sleep about 8 hours, which means I lose about 40 LP per day assuming I sleep when I have 0ish left. The rest is inefficiency because I suck and probably can't quite get to the 200LP per day figure this should imply.)

 

Best time to be a NEET ever?

 

Wow, this post is probably relevant to nobody, oh well.

I kinda can't into mermaid festa either, FCing it was an act of god more or less (I say, but really early I think I did that segment without losing combo then failed somewhere else...)

 

I've been analyzing it latest time im playing and it seems like its a triple, then a 4x alternating, then a 5x alternating? Not sure if there is a break between those two... the rest should comparatively easy.

 

The upside is that part, apart from an easy thing in the middle, doesn't have any macaroons. So you can play mermaid festa if you're bored; it's ok.

Mermaid Festa is my Nemesis. I go into it knowing what part messes my game and i still fail. That fast triple screws me over every time because i don't have enough time to switch between it and the other alternating notes.

I can even FC Aishiteru Banzai and i just unlocked it today.

The kotori event song on hard though, those short sliders kill me.

I guess i'll try that, i just hold them for too long every time. But overall the rest of the song is not easy either, after that there's so many double taps.

I'm already not a pro with sliders when it comes to let go of them, why did they do such a complicated song. I still get nearly 200 points out of it though.

How do you unlock the expert diffculty? Do you have to FC?

100 whole event points. Yeah. I'm not going to be able to get Kotori D: This is probably hardest and most tedious "event" I've ever done in a game.

Well the game is designed for you to spend money if you want the best stuff :P

 

It's blantantly obvious when you have no ads of any kind and the game is free to play that there's going to be some implications.

Namely cool down times and the currency you need to get the good stuff.

The price of love gems is completely absurd when compared to other games that use the free to play format.

 

But it's too addictive!

 

Have you checked some UR? Their designs are godly.

Yes, they're all so cute. Is there any formal drop rate percent for getting a rare, super rare, or ultra rare?
