Hype as fuck for the remake of Fate/Extra. It and CCC quietly have the best story of any Fate timeline. Too bad Extella and Last Encore made total hash of the Extraverse afterwards. Oh well.

The art from the JP 5th Anniversary collection ("Under the Same Sky") can be downloaded here.

There are a lot of Servants who aren't in our game yet, but I guess that's something to look forward to.

Thanks for linking this, there are some fun ones in here.

I finished everything in the event except for a couple of the apples that popped up today. And the shop monuments of course. All the CEs I had from doing tons of rolls last year made clearing the shop quick.

Damn, 19% of the player in JP have been playing since pre-registration. Other mobile games could only dream of that retention rate. Also super interesting that more people started getting into Fate with Zero instead of FSN/UBW. I actually think Zero is the best Fate media we've gotten, but I'm still surprised since I've always thought UBW was the most popular.

Man, zero chill on the schedule. I was hoping to get a week or two to finish up some singularities for more free quartz. At least the servants I want are on the part 2 banner. Don't really need any of the first three.

Shame that Jeanne Alter is a single target berserker. I only ever use AoE zerkers anymore for farming, outside of Herc/Cu Alter for challenge stuff. She's got "ok" survivability but still not worth it to not go for class advantage on most bosses. For anyone that missed the CCC event, you'll likely want to roll a few times on part 2 for BB to have some class advantage vs. Avengers, and I love MHXX's design so she's my real goal for this event. Boy does MHX continue to get absolutely awful fucking skillsets though.

On Monday I'm dropping the 700 SQ fund I didn't need for Skadi into as many copies of Dantes as I can get. I'll probably end up getting zero now :p

I kinda forgot Dantes was gonna be on the banner. I was thinking of attempting Summer Ushi or BB with the 500 or so quartz I still have after rolling Skadi.

I was leaning towards BB, but Dantes would be more practical to pair with my new Skadi.

Why not both? :p

700ish SQ.
I got Dantes on my first roll. NP2 needed for Skadi didn’t come until my last roll. I literally have 1 SQ left 🤣

Nothing but junk in between but I’m happy. Have him at 10/10/10. Hopefully he can wreck stuff as good as they say.

I have Dantes NP1 so I'm skipping that banner.

Spent over 500 SQ on the other one. NP1 Jean archer, NP5 Ushi assassin, NP2 Ibaraki lancer. Got Jean on the last roll.

Decided to do a few pulls which led into a few more on the summer banner. No great luck this time, got spooked by Atalante NP6 (which really pissed me off) and 2 SSR spooks - NP6 Waver (-_-) and NP3 Drake. Got a few copies of Ushi and Ibaraki, and a metric shitload of the 4* event CE. I think I can max LB 4 of them.

Of the 500ish quartz I had, I spent about 200 of them trying to roll Dantes. Instead I got NP3 Gil, NP3 d'Eon and several summer cards to play with.

As for the remaining 300ish quartz, I haven't decided if I'm gonna try and roll for Ushi and Ibaraki or the BB banner yet.
It's not fair throwing 3 straight banners at us in the same event. >.<

There's always the option to wait for the rerun but then you run into the same problem with the new summer event next year right after.

They know the summer event is one of the biggest and want to milk us for everything we got.

Also got a spook Ozy (NP3) and Vlad (NP3 or 4) in my 500 SQ.

I wish they had some big quartz giveaway at the beginning of the summer events. Like 30 or 60 or something, just to throw us a little bone. I mean for GL the anniversary wasn't terribly long ago, but still - given that every summer has the rerun followed by at least 2 banners, it seems purposefully shitty of them. At the very least, they should remove off-banner SR/SSRs from summer banners.

They literally gave us over 300 quartz for anniversary. You should do the math on how many dollars that's worth. That's extremely generous for any gacha mobage shit you'll play.

Anyways, summer is whale season. Most of the summer servants aren't even the best in their classes, they are pure waifu material to vacuum your wallet out.

I decided to forego Dantes and BB and spent the last of my quartz on the J.Archer banner.
I managed to walk away with Ushiwaka and Ibaraki and also got spooked by Kiritsugu (NP2) and Parvati, who will go very nicely with my Skadi comps.
And for some reason, they gave me a shit-ton of Summer CEs. I've never been able to limit break Gacha-Event CEs before, but for this event, I was able to limit break the 3* twice with leftovers, the 4* star with leftovers and the 5* with leftovers.

But for now, it looks like our devilish Kouhai will have to wait 'till next year to spook me.

The 300 sq lasted 5 min. 0 Skadi.

I like the groundhog day story of this event but fucking A I hate the constant forced story missions. I just wanna farm/grind out some currency but every 3-4 fights i have to stop and do a story fight.

I finished the part one story. I agree it would have been better without all the story interruptions. Sometimes I have time to farm and not read a lot of text. They kept breaking up the farming with story segments constantly.

Man, I need to farm Koko Head to maximize my farming but I can't find a good 3-5 turn setup using summer CEs and servants. Might have to pull out Lartoria to speed this up. If only summer Jeanne alter was AoE NP.

BB in 150 SQ. NP2 BB with 90 more SQ! NP2 Medb saber, NP3 XX.

Threw 90 more SQ at the other banner and FINALLY NP2 Jeanne archer!

And a Nightingale spook too (NP5). All 5 have been spooks.

Just saw Kiara was revealed with a swimsuit version.



*edit* just saw that the 2nd part banner came out, didn't do great, but at least I got what I wanted after 3 10-pulls (and a spook Arjuna, one of my least favorite servants). I might do some more pulls for BB later, but I'm done for now.

I got my login bonus and grabbed a smaller quartz pack for some fun rolls. In using 90 quartz I got:

XX
Mordred (now NP2, meh)
Artoria (now NP2, yay)

Rate up is a lie. I think that’s my last roll until New Years. Time to save again.

Your account really seems to favor Sabers.

I think my next rolls will be the Chinese banners and Bradamante, not sure how far off those are though. The servant I'm most excited for is Halloween Shuten, a welfare. I've always been unsatisfied with the ST buster casters we have available, which is pretty much just Illya and Sanzang. I wish i had either of them at NP2 honestly, but it won't matter much after Halloween anyways.

Yeah I have a giant army of Sabers. Assassins and Lancers are my weak part.

I see Japan has a new Caster Artoria which allows arts loops like Skadi does for quick. Might have to plan for that even though she is 2 years away.

Man, talk about low effort NPs. they just took the flowers from Merlin and had her stand around and lift a staff. I'm not a big Artoria fan, but she deserved better.

Finally found the Kiara clip:

Just threw a yolo ticket at Banner 2 and got Medb. It even faked me out with a silver card at first too.

So in total, for this summer event I've walked away with:
-Caster Gilgamesh (NP3)
-Chevy (NP3)
-Astolfo
-Parvati
-Sin Ushi
-Lancer Ibaraki
-and now Seiba Medb
-and a shit-load of Summer CEs.

Summer Kiara?

Yea I can't wait to see what the other 2 swimsuits look like. I was a little let down with her NP as another "get real big and smoosh the enemy", but it is what it is.

Finished clearing out the shop, so now I'm in full point grind mode.

Yep - no more shops. The raids are just for the NP copies of Jeanne and to finish up the costumes. They were pretty easy to do. There's also one CQ that unlocks after the raids. I haven't looked at it yet.

So apparently the new summer servants are Kiara, Murasaki, Abby, Illya, Bryn, and I think that last one is Tomoe but I'm not sure. Welfare is Lancer Yu

Found this image on Reddit with previews of at least one of their suits each.

So I finally got to the BB raids. So far it's been something like:

-Oh? Moon Cancer Kiara and Demon God Pillar? Martha, do the thing.
Martha: Tarasque, our time has come. *cracks knuckles*
Tarasque: *Shudders* Yes, dear.

-Oh? BB's a foreigner now?
Melt: *T-posing intensifies*

-I wonder who I'm going to use on Alter Ego BB?
NP4 Medusa Lily: *Sharpens Harpe with malicious intent*
Double-Skadi: TOO GODDAMN HOT!

Man I really don't want to start down the path of running two accounts for this game, but the 2 year wait for stuff kills me. Great pulls!

Oh man, I just realized I've been farming terrible stages for motivation/inspiration/etc. I've just been mainly using natural AP since I cleared the store and I still need like 500k of each resource. Saw the counter was down to 3days and now I've fucked myself again.

For anyone grinding the resources instead of shop stuff, you want to do Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and Kilauea Volcano (Crunch Time). Everything else is a waste.

Dammit. I always do this to myself on limited events. Haven't even started the raids yet -_-.

Oh. Then you should probably get those raids done then. On natural AP, it took me most of a day and a half to do them.

Yea I went into grind mode last night after I realized how far behind I was. I'm catching up already, but I really need to manage these events better.
