Guys lets talk about club pvp
I think I know how they're going to implement it. Im largely taking this from one of com2us' other games, Soul seeker.
>Club battles happen at a certain time during the week decided by the club leader
>Club members set up attack and defense teams during the week
>When the club match opens up for that week the club will have a shared stamina bar where they can send out their attack teams to take down other clubs defense teams
>Once a certain number of of defense teams are defeated you get garunteed rewards
>Scores will determine club ranking rewards and crystals and d-stones will be the payout for whereever your club places in the ranking
I think this is the most likely case for SS clubs. What do you guys think? Would you like it if they implemented club pvp like this? What would you like to see changed or improved? What are you hoping the club matches look like?
Hope I didn't fuck up anything in the OP. At least I didn't fuck up as bad as this guy.
At the same time Shanti gets the EE she deserves.
Why wouldn't it be pvp? What else could it possibly be? Some sort of raid thing with boss matches with disgustingly inflated health or something?
I think that'd be far less interesting and engaging than club pvp. Plus you know how bb despises releasing new bosses.
Well at least /ssg/ can be proud we don't have shitposting on this level.
If you haven't logged on for more than 21 days you should be eligible for 14 days of free shit, including crystals and an Evolved Littre. May as well pick that shit up and see what you missed.
My first combination
Wish me luck ssg
I'm so happy. My striker has a real stone now!
I think I've use up all my luck for the rest of the month since I did a celebratory 10+1 and got ranklet and hilde
I really just wanted anything that wasn't BE. I'm grateful beyond all belief that it was one of the best stones I could have gotten.
Gonna try for ancient stormer next for silk shenanagins.

bonus round: rank 100 BE and Glab evolution two weeks ago
I just want a nice stone for Blade.
It's shit like this that makes me burn out. I can't even look forward to unique combinations anymore because at this point there's only a 1/4 chance that the 5 million gold will be useful.
Well its better than spending 5 million gold on scouts and getting >tfw no metatron
This anon got lucky >>118795732, you will too. Believe in your stones and believe in your waifu. Always remember that through every failed stone combination she's right there next to you, cheering you on and knowing that you can get back up. Thats the only way you'll get through this. Together.
That's nothing. I spent three times that and even I think it's low.
Then again I evolved a TW, PoME, SHoT, and Teranox so I didn't have to spend a single thing on combination, and free uniques were EBM and Star's Tears.
Still using Loseian so it evens out. BT never.
Virgil is pretty good with Isillia since she needs less healing than Kei and they have chains with each other.
Being able to revive people with attacking is nice too since he's fairly tanky with the Isillia chain.
>farm girl metatron getting off on grinding grains
My dick wasn't ready for that mental picture.
>tfw stone with shit stats evolved
At least my guin can bring 3 dark crit dmg now
How important is 20% receiving pass effect? Because I just replaced my dribble stone with terqnox and that knocked a solid 2-300 off my TA. Plus my dribble went from about 800 to 600. So I'm wondering if it's worth it to replace the receiving pass stone with with dribble stone.
Is the guy who had William with terranox and like 200% crit before the match here? I could use your advice as well.
Depend on how good is your passer? Since you are using William I assume that your passer is Nari. In my experience, she often active pass for 1k-1k2. 20% will also be 200 extra dribble but that only work when active pass. So you should stick to dribble stone as they are more consistent and provide the same amount of dribble
With the pace BBall is introducing new legendaries, we'll only have 5 S2 legendaries at most. I doubt they'll give another legendary when there are 15 legendaries in game and players already have at least 1 from rank30 box.
>Galaxy super league in a nutshell
>Ruins of Bronze Season 1
>Stuck forever in Platinum Distorsion spacetime Hell
So if someone put a gun to your head and told you to pick 3 ideal stones to put on a maxed out Noa, which would you pick? Teranox's Blood and 2 dribble stones? Or would you put a penetration or crit stone in the prism slot?
I think they just don't know how to make new player that wouldn't be broken but would also be good and used by many. Also new players come without EE so people don't feel comfortable with using crystals on players like Renee or Evylin who don't have EE while there are players of same type who have that. There aren't that many players released since May's major update that people would use crystals for, only BT and Elaine pretty much.
The difference between shitposting and being genuinely, retardedly wrong is thin. And without people doing the latter there's not a lot to discuss.
Game's not getting a lot of new players, so what's left is a bunch of old people complaining about RNG.
Pretty sure msot people here left /ssg/ when that guy who kept fake posting as Jintello started appearing. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if this general was to die, I only come here and give some tips to newbies and watch the shitpost.
I could also go to that "other" community where there are less retards and people that actually help too.
SS has gone from everyone enjoying their waifus and the game casually and discouraging rerolling to esports reroll for legunds, minmax and follow the fucking metametameta. No wonder the game's dead. I hope you autists are happy with your spreadsheets and diskusshuns. I wish you fucks stayed on your fucking forums and reddit.
Finally, this took way longer then expected .
These people have been here since /mbgg/
I still discourage rerolling. I find most rerollers lose the will to play the game early on and its a massive waste of time.
But I just got off work and I notice this thread has quite a bit of deleted post and the last thread literally died.
I'm not going to tell us to go back to /mbgg/ but you guys see why we were in /mbgg/ in the first place though, right?
So we could talk about other games in between updates on SS. It's not like SS churned out major updates fast before its just now we have a concentrated thread on SS and thus people want more shit to discuss.
I don't get this one. I've been playing since last October and I still have units I want and back up units I wish to get and superb.
I used to spend some money a few months back but now I've only been getting the $5 pack and I still don't have all the units or have units I don't want to get.
Hell I still want certain uniques and more of certain stones for my teams.
I haven't played in forever, is there any reason to still keep all these Elizabeths in my box?
>tfw got an alt account with Beth and Balth but too lazy to play
>login and do it's daily every single day
>slowly building a thunder team with off-color legends
I've always wanted to build mono-thunder in my main account. It's like pottery.
You two want to build a thunder team with this?
I was hoping for leventor too but I will go Thunder/Light with Hiro's Ace or Blade striker if I draw Haru.
The fact is that I want to use a good striker for Baltheon. Blade, Lucid, Hiro or Latios?
My WoM gives:
>crit rate 4%
Crit rate ad dribble are fine, because I want to equip it later on Vonchi. But the rest ... I guess I will try Reapply
>gold achievement gives almost one whole
Oh boy, I can almost taste it already
> Thinking about what unique I should go for in my next combination
> Want Teranox but don't want another fucking BE or EBM
> Want SHoT and Sielnt Cold but I have Glabaris PTSD
> Can use all light uniques but I don't need them as much as I need the other three
What should I do?
Compared to playing roulette on trying to get another terranox? Unless the gods are on your side then you will likely get the dstones faster than the terranox. You don't need all 5 stats to be amazing just 2 - 3 to be for your striker.
Anyone know what's after this?
>tfw got a blade from the 10k
I am having a weird bug.
I put saramir my chain farming team, I cannot start chains with her though. Other cahracters can start chains with her but they do not progress.
I just checked my player book and her face is still greyed out (saying I don't have her) when in fact I have 2 copies of her.
Is there a fix for this or do I need in-game support? The player datase seems fucked.
Yeah me too
How good is this rainbow?
I can start to scout Isillia dupe now?
Should I use Raklet instead of Tyler?
New player here, so this is my current team and I'd like some advice. I have Hildegard on scout and can get her tomorrow once I get the 300 GP reward, is she worth grabbing to help my weak midline or should I try to find someone who's more useful? I don't have much gold to spare on scouting though since this week I'm mainly focusing on getting evolutions for my players. My goal for this week is to evolve Khirel, Eden, and Hilde (if I do end up scouting her) while probably EEing either Isillia or William.
Basically I don't really know what I want my team to look like (aside from having more waifus) but all I know is that I want to focus on William as my striker and try to make him not shit.
Who should I evolve/EE next? I was thinking Elaine/silla but my front had been enough to get by for where I'm at. Also thoughts on Elaine in the mid since her totem is team wide and if she gets a penetration she can use her active.
My back is largely filler and the only reason I'm using Lucian over issila is due to spirit regen for passing away
>Black Tortoise from free draw
>Saramir in scout
Yay or nay on spending the GP?
I also have Roina as my only other attacker. Is it worth it when I EE Khiriel to put him in the back and have Roina be a midliner or should I keep Khiriel in the mid and hope I get better units eventually?
Who should I also scout for?
What's the longest break you took from Soccer Spirits, /ssg/?
2 months here.
That word doesn't work there and never has but yeah I am bronze and she outclasses my current passer. Such is life at Rank 43 as a free player
From before S2 until exactly 14 days ago
It's worth it having Khirel in the back eventually because he needs counterattack resist, which is one of Nerua's totems. Right now you should be okay I guess? Also you're not in a rush, so you can wait a bit, and Roina has her EE in the works.
Just ignore anyone saying word "cuck", those are redditors who are trying to fit in with their dank meme.
Roina EE is going to be broken as fuck. Trust me, my dad works at BB.
Thanks friendo. Now I just have to level her.
>go to buy Saramir
>refresh scout instead
Well shit. Oh well, not like I could've used her on my team anyway. Seems I'm getting more and more 5* popping up in scout now. Ravian and Lynia this time.
Too bad, it would have been nice to have the full pic in a better resolution.
nevermind, I just remembered
I don't really think she's going to save william at this point
anyone who's invested in william already has a shit ton of crit stacked, and no one's going to bother whaling for an S2 dark player who doesn't have an EE
though maybe someone will have a reason to go ardor/dark now, who knows
usually it's in a combination with strong defenders in the backline, in an attempt to act before they can shoot, but it's likely that anon doesn't have anyone else for the spot
kevin really only benefits kiki with the action bar, outside of his line DR passive
TouchFluffyTail has one open slot remaining. If you still need a club, please feel free to join us.
our situations are reversed. i have a billion ardor/light reflex stones, 2 ardor ones evolved into EBMs and i still have enough for all my key players that need it. i need as many ww DR stones to try getting a PoME out of them for my jin
tfw no stone trading/merchanting system
How to defeat Colo 35 here?
Normal shot and pray Balth to steal CA and Active?
>do a 10+1 draw for GP
>randomly get her
She a good CM or is she better off somewhere else?
>mfw I'm using William unironically
Guess I'll have two shitters on my team but she's a cutie so I'll use her anyway.
Well, we leveled up last night and now have two spots open!
If you apply make sure to have /ssg/ in your profile or you won't be accepted, thanks.
This is our week, William. We will finally be united.
I think you would be the perfect candidate to start a Cuck land club since you seem to have an unhealthy obsession with this cuck meme. No one is using this meme apart from you.
at some point for veteran players its more about collecting waifus then gameplay. Valkyrie crusade is pretty old now hard to change its formula without pissing off some part of its playerbase. Give it credit for lasting this long tbh also I think you play with the nips too so theres that.
>tfw I almost always forget
Why can't it automatically check me in upon login?
Maybe, I'm at that floor right now with my mostly WW team around the same TA. On the upside you have Magnus and I don't.
It is extremely easy to get the top tier unit. I have played through a lotf of mobage, most of them are cutthroat that punished f2p severely. Look at shit like Brave Frontier and Guardian Cross or Devil Maker. Powercreep destroying the meta every 2 weeks.
VC allow a f2p to compete with top tier team, strongest card are free and you don't need too much work to have an endgame team. Most people play it casual and chimming out in their cities with their waifu. That said, the new legendary Archwitch just break the meta again
So I've done 3 10 + 1 and the only 5*s I got were linmay and hilde.
Im a bit disappointing cause I wanted the featured legendary. How do I get them? Do I have to do like, 10 10+1? Does anyone know what the rates are?
>thinking you'd get a legendary with 3 10+1s
>disappointed with 2 5*s in 3 10+1s
it gonna take atleast 30 10+1 draw t get a legendary anon. Unless you open your pocket don't eve think about it. And there is also a chance wit meme tier legendary like William
Your best bet is the dstone shop. Climb the colo, go arena and do the chains.
Also, friendly reminder that Serestia is a meme legendary
Put Daisy and/or Meiran somewhere in the back if you have for the crit damage boost and can fit them without sacrificing much survivability.
Drop Tyler for Erica if you have her, just to give Lucian that 40% HP boost that he needs because he's garbage.
You'll be stalling in the defense and simply long passing up for the potential one shot kill, probably two shots.
I'm surprised I even got to colo 49 using Beatrice and having Losecian as the GK here.
Fuck colo healing teams.
Yeah I'm doing a similar backline and Elaine's active just makes Lucian slowly die despite the life gain. I think you need to break mid, active + shoot. Let it go to backline, heal for action bar than long pass for pass + shot. Run double passers frontline potentially to guarantee the shot.
>silk superb at scout
I'm thinking about droping elaine for her. Should i?
you don't try to draw Legendaries. You forget they exist and go about your business.
>Drawn 3 legendaries that I don't use while drawing for GP or featured characters
>4 total in the cheerleader box including welfare
There are low percentage of people here who've gotten a legendary from draw. You will get a random legendary when you reach rank 30, just pray is the one you wanted (only if the one you wanted was season 1 legendary). 2 5 stars in 3 pulls is very good, I've gotten charity 5 stars twice now, that's quite a bit of 10+1 without any 5 stars.
According to the drop info there are 13 legendaries and like 90 5* so when you get a black ball, without accounting for the innate lower chance of getting a legendary it's like a 14% chance to get one.
So if it's ~5% to get a black ball and 14% to get a legendary out of it (much lower I'm sure) you're looking at around less than a .7% chance of getting a legendary. This doesn't account for Serestia's boosted drop rate though and there's a fuckton of rounding but tl;dr is that if you're looking to get a specific legendary out of 10+1 draws you either whale out or be prepared to reroll a LOT of times.
>tfw Khirel, Beth, and Bell were all from draws
>30 box gave dupe beth
Getting a dupe legend is the worst thing ever, worst than getting william'd.
Unless of course WIlliam was the dupe.
>This doesn't account for Serestia's boosted drop rate though
Featured characters are only boosted if you fulfill that draw requirement.
You first have to draw a legend, then you have a 3x shot at it being Serestia. Not a 3x shot overall.
>Another Neris from gk match
>Already 7 3* neris
>Littre is stuck at 4/5 after including seasonal achievements and boss scout
I just need one more littre to superb BT, is that hard to ask.
actually yes, while my main area may not be the shooting department, it requires a better midlline and backline to work, I can do most stuff with my team, but I'm a free player so I'm behind the legend wall
Well, i had put elaine somewhere without benching Silla
it's doable without legends
It just takes all of the superbs
also r8 this formation I was thinking of
orses would go top right, pushing bora to the middle
and elise would have IC
yeah, the goal is to shut down the enemy backline
once that's done there's all the time in the world to win
but honestly hypermaxed bora with maxed stones and a teranox has pretty decent damage
gumi never actually does rate ups though, no one does.
All "rate up" events are actually just false advertising because of every gacha's fucking 2 tiered pull algorithm.
First it rolls for the grade
Then it rolls for the unit
The rate up gets applied to that second roll and not the first which essentially makes it fucking worthless and nothing more than a trap to get gullible people to waste their premium currency.
It's already become pokemon for me.
Only if it worked like psuedo RNG where each draw boosted the odds instead of needing 1100 draws.
Honestly it wouldn't change much since the whales willing to buy 1k draws will have enough d.stones to pick up whatever already.
Anyone do some draws recently?
I recall this number reading 5.08% before.
Probably the new 5*s affecting the rate
I wish they'd just use a different math altogether where you roll for the number of stars and then pick the pool of characters of that star so they don't come back to this bullshit every time
I just realized that BB has only been releasing new 5* cards. The more they release the better the rates get
Welp, how long before 3* pengs get dumped into the draw to even out the rates?
Just like PAD. You just need to release more shitty 5* to make the 5* pool bigger and bet on rng to make sure they'll never get what they want.
>bb announces the ardor update
>Lucianfags go wild
>update day comes
>its just a bunch of draw only ardor 4*s to clutter up the rates
>Lucian disappears from the servers as all lucianfags commit suicide
The day has finally come hasn't it.
I've yet to draw a 5* in chain chronicle besides the starter I rerolled for and a knight dude when I wanted blue haired girl.
I only ever roll event gatchas and I open the game every 2-3 weeks for free tickets instead of playing the useless shit
CC has shit draw rates, dunno if v2 changed that.
I've been logging in everyday for those tickets so I can get Lephret and Teresa and then quit once the event is over.
Which is exactly why I like scout in SS, at least I can grind for things.
Not sure how that's relevant, my problem is that their current math makes no sense with there being any more characters released and they're just gonna have another draw rate scandal the moment someone makes a tiny math mistake
Thoughts on elaine midfield? I tend to prefer silla/nari/sharr as a frontline since i gain enough spirit so pull off combos but with elaine in the front I end up having no spirit for an active shot now that it is 1 full bar
Did anyone else suddenly lose 400 TA?
I had like 10100 or something like that and now im suddenly at 9800. What happened? I thought they already took off the club stats. I havent changed my team at all. I dont get it.
i run that same exact backline
a fucking trash tier card.
If you can somehow get her to have high enough speed then she's barely useful in mid or back.
Literally all she needs to do is some random actions, but her speed is shit tier.
it's ok i guess, you'll live against a shot or two from a good sharr setup at least
She was meh before the random spirit nerf. She is trash after the spirit cost on her active doubled.
Her team wide debuff sound good on paper, but it literally never reach 3 stack due to how slow she is. They also fall off when the enemy dies, which is basically every time the ball hits your front line and your attack ram their way there.
Pen if you don't run Glab.
Hitting high Pen wile maintaining crit damage/crit rate is how Beatrice deal with Isillia, otherwise you'll need like 5 shot to take Isillia below 50%.
nah he just has one EBM, EBM has two debuffs for the damage decrease and attack reduction debuff
it's usually nari with IC/baltheon, yuri/elaine/someone that can use EBM, sharr. without a good nari, you'll have issues with spirit, so i use silla for totem/spirit generation/ace. there are probably other different frontlines with sharr but i can't think of any at the moment
Right now I'm hitting 198% critical without Milky's active, how high do I need it to be? I don't have Glabaris or SHoT yet.
Also I'm sticking to dark dribble for the time being because I don't have a decent pen stone and that dribble one is at +15.
Elementals are not rare. There's no real need to hold them back since at worst you'll have to wait a week to get more.
Littres, on the other hand...
I made some poor decisions back when I first started. Nothing I didn't get over, but if I had one more 5* Littre my front and middle rows would be fully superbed.
I made it to high diamond last season and all I have is my welfare legendary, Bell. Done some tuning since then. I'm expecting to hit Champs this time around.
The team I faced in the finals for my diamond promotion was running 7 legendaries. But Lia is above all that shit.
I find those crit stacking Hiro/Beatrice just as scary, if not scarier, than Sharr.
The crit damage buff made decked out Beatrices terrifying, I wouldn't be surprised to see Beatrice OHKO me through Silla ace if I removed Nerua,
And you aren't getting out of diamond unless you have Issilia or BT.
So, like the man said:
>Its clear who's actually stuck in diamond if they're actually afraid of Butt's buff and think it actually matters
BT is pretty ridiculous in PVP but Isillia is ridiculous in PVP and PVE.
I honestly laugh when a lightball faggot mentions another element getting buffed when they have Isillia EE.
>Even Isillia will have an issue with the Sharrs that have Teranox and the crit stacking Hiros/Butts.
What? I thought terranox only added like 35% crit. Unlees the sharr is running 2 other crit stones and max extreme wont it not matter?
>And you aren't getting out of diamond unless you have Issilia or BT.
I got out of diamond with Kei. Now if you said you aren't getting out of Champs you'd probably be right. Need to see what Ermaltion does for him but I think he'll cap out at like 105 CR with nerua
>She won't be getting all of those stacks though, or if she does somehow, by the time she gets it, it won't even matter
This. By the time she has 3 stacks if an isilla or bt hasn't been damaged enough to turn off their passives then it literally wont even matter and your sharr is shit in the first place.
Most Sharrs I see are using the blue receive pass in their prism slot. If they do put points into extreme they'll be at 240-250% crit on their active.
The crit rate is a static 35%, it increases damage done with the stacks not crit.
Wow, I just checked and it actually doesnt
It stacks the attack buff and only 25%
Yeah, I know that, but I mean, I only got 1 5* stone so far this month that I got her, so I think 6* are even more unreachable considering my horrible luck.
I thought It only gave you chance for 6* but without reducing the cool down.
>Terranox = 25% attack stacks 3 times on a critical hit for 20 minutes and it gives 35% critical rate up.
>Damage needs to stack
>Crit rate doesn't stack with damage
Why do people constantly cream themselves over this stone again?
It's one of the three stones that have both damage-enhancing effects and crit rate in a single stone, other being Shaking Heart and blue receiving pass.
It's also one of the few uniques that have way better stat effects than approximately the sum of two commons, which is good news for minmaxers (and why you'll see Teranox instead of Shaking Heart on Blades).
It's also the only way to make use of the third sad empty Ardor slot for Sharr/William. It would be nice to have extra crit or dribble but the symbol limitation prevents it and Teranox does both.
Its existence also completely invalidates Blazing Essence because Teranox triggers any time you crit instead of needing to penetrate (ie. you get stacks on steals, while getting hit, shooting, everything) so seeing more than 1 stack isn't uncommon at all.
The talk about evolving Marineco above got me to thinking "hey, maybe I should evolve my Marineco, then, and oh hey it's Ardor elemental day anyway." So I did nine rounds in the space-time continuum and got exactly 4 adv, 3 mid, and 2 low elementals. This feels like the mobile game equivalent of taking a shit so smooth nothing gets on the toilet paper. Keep up the good work and have fun, everybody!
>buy the 30 crystal swirly match because I need a 5* swirly to EE
>should be quick and easy like the penguin matches
>get assraped by the little fuckers
Jesus fucking hell who the fuck designed this shit? Why did they decide to make the match so hard when you have to pay for it?
Why the fuck can't you pick who to pass to or at least have a clear picture of who you're about to pass to? This shit is so gay and I've lost games I should have won just because I passed to a low health person.
I hope I'm just retarded and I'm not seeing how.
It would also make my games fun so I don't lose every time my best player has to let go of the ball because they can't oneshot the goalie.
I will never understand why mobage insist on making the odds extremely unfair for you at the start so you have to either goy out or reroll 1000 times.
No, not that. I mean it can still be a dice rolls from 0-40, but within the position, the slower units can't roll a starting action bar higher than the faster unit. That way when you make the team, you know EXACTLY what order the units will move in.
That does increase the team strength gap between manual and AI play though
Colo will also be a lot easier with people not needing to max out the action bars to control what order things go, and they're gonna need another colo rework to compensate for that
You can bypass the action bar rule by attacking and drop the ball to nearest player. With AI, you can use attacker at mid to penetrate and hit their backline then drop ball to nearest player.
It shouldn't matter if you do it in the beginning of the match when the gk has full hp either way. I used to use hildergard to force the ball into jury then let their backline ram into her.
Thanks for the luck.
How lucky. I got thunder waifu that looked good (The best in the universe, actually) as well as a bunch of other thunder waifus and wanted to see if I could make a team out of them.
Is a "Position" downfield, midfield, forward or is it the individual player positions? I'm assuming it's referring to the field's position since the position buffs wouldn't make that much sense if they weren't but I just want to make sure.
Kallian, just letting you know that the club says you have not been on in 49 days, but you drew Guin 2 days ago. Please confirm that you are checking in or something or I'll have to remove you.
Mono WW has an average frontline, weak midline, strong backline
Mono Thunder has a strong frontline, strong midline, weak backline
Mono Ardor has a strong frontline, weak midline, weak backline
Mono Light has a weak frontline, weak midline, wak backline
Mono Dark has a weak frontline, weak midline, weak backline
>tfw club has no issues filling, is active, and doesn't get shitposted about
after Raklet and Nikita
it is the only color with 3 HP totem
only thing bad about it is probably the GK
and these day people forget that that Nerua is off color in there "mono" team
>yfw the Club match system allows clubs to team up and become allies
weak attackers, lucius is the only strong one
however you're encouraged to use sage for his teamwide ardor buff and yuri for backline totem
also forced to use Erica for the teamwide HP buff + lucian chain
lastly, lack of EE GK
strongest of the mono teams, their weaknesses slowly got phased out as more EEs got added
only weakness I can think of is sub-par GK, and even then it's just barely weak
underrated, but not as strong as mono thunder/light
Malcolm is very strong with his super play/collapse camp combo, and Dale is a very good alternate attacker
weakness here is the front/backline, depending on what you run
frontline wise you can run lucid or vitos(again, underrated) however they're subpar until you get closer to max superb +120 etc
ravian is ravian
Backline, you're forced to run ripboi or ronald.
you're also heavily inclined to run Verister here, for the teamwide dark buff
