Title: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: lui on October 21, 2019, 11:25:49 am


Welp, KOFA is now out here in the West with the servers launching in mass tommorow, not sure if there's a general megathread for it so I decided to make one here.


Netmarble is a pretty competent mobile developer so it's time to see how far I can grind without paying a single cent :DDD

Been playing this game since it came out in South Korea and I can testify that this game is pretty rewarding for non-whale players thanks to its rather easy quests and events.

The only thing I would criticize is the overall drop rates of characters and battle cards. You need to be stacked with enough rubies for a character + battle card you want.

iirc you can get the charcters you want easily, it's the special outfits that require whaling, correct?

Well, that and a few other characters.

Some are only available for a certain time even when they are not festa characters (i.e. the new Venessa and Ramon).
Some are only available for a very limited time (especially boss characters) like Orochi and Igniz.

But overall, getting the rubies and other stuff is pretty easy compared to most gacha games I played. I only spent 30 dollars total after playing for almost 6 months and that's WAY less than other games I play and still got to manage to have Igniz (a rare festa boss character) and am saving up more rubies for the next.

To be wary, the game is managed by Netmarble, so they may try some stupid stuff later down the line but at the moment, they are very generous.

Of course, the infinite rerolls AND getting a 5* select character ticket is definitely a big plus.
Ended up getting Shermie from the rerolls and Mai from the ticket is a decent start.

EDIT: The game definitely looks to be pretty tricky from the getgo due to the nature of needing to match colors AND each character having a certain class set on top of that along with needing to be paired up with their corresponding striker for maximum effectiveness(already see this with me having 97 Ralf and Clark give benefits to each other).
So it seems like in later stages, you really may need strategy and just can't sleep through the game on AUTO.

I'm surprised and thankfull that this game actually came out in Norway. These type of games never comes over here.
By the little time I've played it, I must say that there are a few mechanics (outside of gameplay) that you have to dig deep to understand. However, the gameplay is addictive, it's fun and it's easy. I like it, and it looks pretty well.

This looks pretty cool.

But I gotta say, been playing Marvel Future Fight by Netmarble for years now.
They are getting worse with premiums and power creeps with each update there.
But it could be the Marvel part acting, so hopefully it won't apply here.

Gonna give this a shot!

They buff your characrers stats, you need to reach lvl 16 on your account to equip them

Special cards are rare character specific cards that unlock their ultras but theyre only really required for endgame content i believe

This looks pretty cool.

I agree with the power creep but i have every character unlocked and a decent amount of t3's, premium characters actually arent all that meta rn, the best characters in the game are still the f2p characters like t3 captain marvel, t3 cap america, etc.

My best 2 characters are t3 cap marvel and t3 cyclops and theyre balls easy to build, with cap marvel being meta in every game mode.


ANYWAYS, power creep isnt too much of a concern for this game, a decent amount of easily obtainable characters are S tier like Ryo 96, Kyo 95. Shermir 97, etc.

Most characters will get you through most of the content of the game, the only truly meta characters rn are O.Iori and O.Leona since the global version isnt caught up yet, atleast thats what alot of peoplenwho play the jpn version tell me.

Tl;dr Power Creep isnt that much of an issue in KOFA :)

I just watched a video that showed all supers in the game and noticed that there seem to be no characters from Maximum Impact and XIV. I kinda understand them treating Maximum Impact as an outlier of the franchise, even though I don't like it, but why would they leave XIV characters out, since that game basically brought KoF back to relevance?

Kula and Angel are worth it due to them being PvP meta and generally are great all around. I got Angel first try and shes easily one of my favorites to use rn due to her Poison Damage over time.

Mature and Shermie are filler but hey it doesnr hurt to have em.

Well in my case, I went on to unlock EQ 4-star Rugal next episode and raised him to be the main 4* hero.
I believe his leader skill was smth that increased dmg and health on all chars or smth.
So he was a great boost to other members in his 4*-only team. I'd start with him if I were you.

Orochi Iori by FAR. he's the best character in the global version so far, hands down and WILL make your playthroughs alot more smooth.

Goenitz is also a good pick, he's right below Orochi Iori.

Trust me. Don't get Goenitz just yet.

Yesterday, during KOF AS Korean serv promo live stream, everyone was criticizing how all the old festa chars were much weaker than the more recent ones and Goenitz was the example for being the weakest next to Omega Rugal.

Global servs will soon recieve tons of new festa chars very soon like O.Zero, Mukai, Pretty Chang and Ash. I suggest you to save your rubies until they come out. Unless Netmarble decides to rebalance things which will never happen...

It requires a bit of grinding either way but I used Envy Mary and leveled up her cores around Lv.60.  You'll be able to get her souls from Epic Quest Ep.1 tasks.  And if you have preregistered the game, Baseball Yuri is your second pick.  Fortunately the restriction doesn't apply to strikers so you can pair both to your high lebeles ones.

It's also really critical to have 4-5 star Set Cards (both must be a pair and you can get Budget ones from the ongoing Growth card missions) and at least one 5 star Option Card (if you are able to acquire an Option ticket that gives you a free selection to any Option Card, pick the one with the image of Maxima or chibi K/Kula as their skills are the best).  Level them all up and both Envy Mary and Baseball Yuri should be doable.

Don't forget to do the EQ daily missions too to get free buffs that'll carry on to Greed Rugal and so forth.

As an added bonus, your high stats Baseball Yuri will contribute to the ongoing King mission as it gives a boost to your score stats for extra goodies.


Got orochi Leona, should i try for orochi iori or try find goenitz next? who is better? another option is to try and find orochi leona special card.
Going for O.Leona's Card would be your next pick IMO.  Even if you don't gain it, 30 misc pulls nets you a free 5* Option Ticket that'll benefit your team.

A new growth mission has been added to give you more items for Limit Breaks.  Day 7 rewards you with lots of Rainbow Souls for any character!

Goenitz is definitely my favorite rn and I got his battle card after only 3 tries buying kof fest pack.
He's like Top 10 best unit, and currently the best Green element.  Max him out as much as possible.  He'll be very handy against Wrath Chizuru's challenges.

Looking at a (Japanese) tier list I see this game too suffers from the Green Desert for some reason. Do gacha games hate the color green or something ? All I have in green is Andy 98 (but I love him).

Woo, I unlocked Envy Mary with a Kyo 96 with a cp of 15k. I'm on day 10 of playing this... Man, the grind in this game is so brutal. Now, to get Greed Rugal... MFF is so slow to build high ranking characters in comparison.
The fight against the Ikari rangers is so broken, this game really doesn't hold back in making the CPU just cheat all the time (well, more like "here's all the rules your character follows, the CPU doesn't follow any of them").

That's just the typical SNK way honestly. Look at how they did all of their boss battles in the past.

Want to point out that fighting Sentai Rangers may have a small chance of softlocking the match depending on how much damage you deal to them during their posing phase.  One member will leave and will not appear forever.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: lui on November 13, 2019, 06:02:59 am
Sentai Rangers are super easy once you learn their tactic.

you're not supposed to unga bunga DPS your way through them with straight attacks. you have to counter once they finish doing their attack strings, and save your finishers. do NOT use your finishers all willy nilly, save them for when they pose


when they get hit with a super during their posing they get stunned even more, allowing you to come in with a ton of DPS for a good amount of time.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on November 13, 2019, 11:58:37 am
Yeah, that's the general strategy against special bosses, Envy Mary trained me for that. Save your supers to break them out of their big phase. It's just everything around it, and I feel these two are worse than the rest. Once Clark starts grabbing you, he just doesn't stop. Infinite emergency roll is a fucking pain too, you can't do any combo without them rolling away and nailing you from behind.

Edit - uh, some character's basic attacks can break through super armor and others can't ? They tank through King's attacks and then pound her, but Ralf does actually put them in hit stun. That's complicated if different characters have different hit properties like that on their basics...
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: lui on November 13, 2019, 02:13:35 pm
If you ever get grabbed by clark, tag out right away so you can send him into a ground bounce state.


The way their super armor works is that you have to hit them once their masks are off, which is tricky since its hard to tell sometimes.


Use purple characters, do NOT use red characters if you arent doing a challenge for them. They will be at a huge disadvantage.

Theres a pretty good discord server that can help you get started: https://discord.gg/abYYUkY

Theres a global starting guide section with a ton of info and a bunch of info on event quests and stuff.

Youre basically gonna want to start building a core set of 5 characters or so, one of each color, to atleast level 70 or 80 to get you through most story content to unlock more content.

The more challenging stuff comes in the form of Epic Quest, Event Quests, Advent Dungeons and stuff that requires you to use up pretty well built characters. The initial grind to unlock content is a bit of a slog since everything feels too easy but once things start to get going there's a bunch of stuff to do.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on November 14, 2019, 08:46:25 pm
Yeah, the story mode is never the measuring stick for difficulty in those games. Although the hard and expert versions do get a lot tougher. But the fun is in the other modes, Epic quest is particularly tough and takes you a lot of time to grind through the challenge, it makes you push your one main character really hard, and then the other regular events allow you to diversify with boosting up a few characters of other colors. Then there's the tournament stuff.

Well I got Original Zero... I like Clone Zero's moves better without the dumb summons, and I wish I were this lucky with Omega Rugal, but that works to. Anyway, what do you even do with those special boss characters that you can't quickly go past lv60 without flat out buying souls ? Do you really have to grind their soul quest, 12 souls a day in expert ? That's gonna take a while...

Do you really have to grind their soul quest, 12 souls a day in expert ? That's gonna take a while...
9 days at Expert with net you 108 Souls needed to get him to Lv.70, and then the quota will increase to 20 Souls the next 10 levels in order to reach Lv.80 where it will again increase the quota to 30 to max out the rest.

So yea, gonna take a while.  But there are some notes.

~The advent dungeons that focuses on colors can drop 2 souls at Expert and as a bonus it nets you a big wad of Profile XP.  Can be done up to 3 times daily.  Currently there is the Purple Soul challenge and will likely rotate to Blue once it finishes.  Hope you have a strong Red Element by then.

~There is also Eru's Growth challenges that'll net you Rainbow Souls when all is completed.  It's a 7-Day challenge and the rewards are great for boosting Zero.O.

~You'll also get some freebies that includes Souls via the Item Loyalty that is free daily along with 30 Rubies.

~Spending Rubies on Battle Card packs will net you a x20 Soul package on your first 2 multi pulls.  I prefer Battle Card Packs instead of Character Tickets since it's cheaper.  I recommend doing this to see if you are lucky to get Zero.O's Battle Card and maybe a few 4* Sets or Options.

~If you're hellbent on getting your units to proper levels, the last resort are paid Soul packs going on right now for Zero.O but it's ridiculously expensive.  However, there is currently a slightly cheaper pack to go along the current Eru Growth Events that provides x50 Souls of your choice.

I don't recommend spending Rubies on the Secret Shop for Souls.  You are better off spending 50 Rubies instead of 100 or more on very few Souls to restock 1 Soul Token to get 4 more Souls in Expert of your choice but it will increase by another 50 Rubies if you need another Token on the same day.

Hopefully you have some kind of decent Set Card build for Zero to boost his stats.

Just experienced my first bricked incident facing the Sentai Rangers with Halloween Kula, tho it might also be the same for other characters.

Was facing Ralf like normal until I fired a Diamond Edge after he finished his attack phase causing him to not lead to the pose with Clark.  Instead, Ralf followed up with attacks like normal.  When it came to the Pose Phase, the whole game became unresponsive and had to be rebooted.

New plan is not to use any Supers at all until the Pose Phase.

So I made a JPN version account and got TK6 Jin and Paul. Almost got Armor King

TK6 Jin is gotten for free, you need to select him. After you do, an extra Iori variant quest will be available.

Paul is gotten via a roulette that costs rubies, but you can also build him via getting 200 souls from said ruby roulette. it isnt that much tbh, only costed me about 2.5k rubies total.

Armor King is gotten via a score event that's pretty easy to farm. 6k tokens is easy to make and he and his special card both cost 6000 each.

TK7 Jin, Kazuya. Heihachi and Xiaoyu are gacha, and like other collabs have a full 1 percent chance of getting, which is better than FES.

Schoolgirl Xiaoyu is the only rough patch, as she is a straight paywall. No alt ways of getting her other than forking over 40 bucks, which, all things considered, isnt bad since im being told she's an amazing unit. But again, it's a rough patch for F2P players. Not sure If I will be getting her.



The banners are dual banners, meaning for the first few weeks Xiaoyu and TK7 Jin will be the only ones obtainable, with Kazuya and Heihachi switching off after they end.


Every character looks amazing to play, TK6 Jin is an absolute monster and Paul has one of the best leaderships, it rivals O.Iori

That's really not too likely. Collabs like that in games like that happen regularly, and you shouldn't read too much into them because they don't mean much. Also that's a very different amount of work, it would take a few years - and there's already Tekken x Street Fighter that's still supposed to come out.

As much as I love both variations of Jin and default Xiaoyu, I feel like the best units to come out of the T7 collab are Paul and Armor King. The former has great mobbing and high clear damage, while the former feels pretty much like a Grade A boss killer. They're so much fun to play!

Also Classic Jin is good and all, but Hoodie Jin is just so damn fun to use and it looks like he has a lot of ATK up in his tree for no good reason. lol
He doesn't feel like a defense unit at all; if anything I've barely touched the man and with welfare DM he's already stronger than my Rugal at 70...

...and tfw you can't do the league match because you only have four AS characters that fit the criteria. If only they took my Balance types... ;~;

Level 18 ATK Epic Quest buff for Wrath Chizuru and I STILL can't unlock her, gah, the grind is TOUGH
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on November 24, 2019, 01:53:51 pm
Same here. All I have in green is Andy 98 and Kensou 99 (free Mature is slowly going up), they're great but they're both stuck at lv 80. All of Wrath Chizuru's fights put so much debuff on you, I can't even tell if I need to level up to 90 or push up my episode buff or do more bleed damage or unlock more cores or what. So I just grind everything I can - I'm even grinding the food items to raise my affinity and get the soul rewards to keep leveling them up just a bit. It's so slow.
I really like that the "clear with units less than x cost" missions force you to use lower units, even silver units. Even if you need more episode buff to stand a chance with a silver unit, it's a nice way to force you to keep leveling up silver units.

Oh, when this arena season ends I'll have enough coins to finally get Geese. It's a tough strategy to stay below rank 5000 (my top team CP is 40k). Also fuck Halloween Kula, and Orochi Iori is fucking everywhere.

I got Geese finally, he's fun! Nothing top tier or meta breaking, but hey, it's a great bonus for people who invest their time into pvp every day.


Also yeesh, that sounds rough. I have Goenitz and I still can't seem to crack unlocking Wrath Chizuru, shit's tough! I hope when Episode 1 arrives it isn't as cancerous of a grind as this.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on November 25, 2019, 06:16:51 am
The real challenge is Mecha Goenitz due to his unintended ability to crash the game at will at any point of the fight.

Took about 15+ mins to even get a win despite finding his patterns.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: lui on November 25, 2019, 02:37:49 pm
Have you unlocked her yet? How long did it take for you to unlock her if you did and what level of buffd were you at?
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on November 25, 2019, 04:30:23 pm
I used Goenitz after grinding at 3-11 until Wrath was around Lv.5 and my buffs were at Lv.27+ each.  I used to grind at Envy Marie's stage since my Orochi Leona build since I've reached the point where Auto mode can do its thing.

My Goenitz build has both Option cards that lower his Skill Cooldowns (Maxima and Chibi K'/Kula, the latter you should not confuse with another less viable 5 star that has a more realistic artwork) and were maxed out after farming Growth cards from the Advent Dungeon.  I used my saved Arena coins to pull a guaranteed Option card while got another via exchanging from multipulls.  The Set Cards are the Kula pack that drastically increases Attack after hitting a Critical damage.  Goenitz also has his cores unlocked up to Lv.74.  To further build up, I only spent Rubies on Attack buffs after seeing them in the Secret Shop.

It still wasn't easy and I've yet to finish up the last bit of items, namely the Rainbow Souls.  My strategy was constantly attack while timing the right frames from Wrath to fire a Super Art.  This way I can maximize my chances for Bleed status and just squeeze in extra hits while in High Attack state.  Dodging the tornados while still being close also helps but again its all about strict timing. 

Mature '96 is a good alternative, a free 5 star if you've been doing growth missions and a budget Goenitz if you want to conserve rubies.  The Option and Set cards are the most crucial to this.  I've spent rubies on Multipulls just for the guaranteed Set Cards only because it was cheaper.

Thanks! Thats reallyy is useful! I have 2 maxima cards, and 2 out of 3 of the kula cards with my Goenitz being 73. Im currently at ATK level 21 with the other stats being lower which is fine for me.

Looks like I need just maybe another week of grinding and i should be set!

He has stun, super armor, a ton of debuffs, automatic immunity, builds power insanely fast, low skill cooldown, and to top it all off, you can use NORMAL Geese's special card and it's WAY better than the gacha one, meaning you don't have to waste your rubies getting his card!

He destroys people in PvP and is an absolute unit in PVE since all of what I said above applies to bosses as well. Amazing unit so far.

Don't focus on getting Paul directly. The real value is in the souls. You can craft Paul's souls for 200 souls, which is around 2k-4k rubies depending on your luck with getting soul bingos. His passives, leadership and overall core set are WAY too good for 2k-4k rubies, he's worth it.

His leadership is on par with someone like Orochi Iori

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on November 28, 2019, 04:39:39 pm
Holy shit, I got Wrath Chizuru.
soul dust exchange is the fastest way to get to lv90. Andy sits at 15k CP with a maxed special battle card, two Maxima cooldown cards, one also maxed, and the Kula set cards.
Episode buffs are still around 22.
There has to be a modifier when the enemy is at a higher level, if you're not at level 90 then your CP can be just a couple thousands off and it'll still be a massive difference (Netmarble did that in Marvel Future Fight too so I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled that scum move again). My Andy at lv85 with a CP around 13k still couldn't do shit in 5 minutes and always died. At 90, her lifebar just drained away. I think I barely needed more than a couple of minutes. The Maxima and Kula cards surely helped, but with a cooldown of a couple seconds over 2 minutes, I don't see why I can't get anywhere close to the same result in double the time without the cards. The atk/crit bonus isn't that big.
That or the debuff and self heal she spams just becomes way too hard to catch up on the longer it goes, so to end the fight fast, you have to... go faster. Gee thanks.
Anyway all of a sudden it becomes really easy, she was a 7 bars left in over a minute. It's noticeable.
(Oh yeah, Andy's 40% bleed up leadership probably helps too)

Lui, if you can't get your Goenitz above 85 and still can't get through, really try to boost up the free Mature to 90 and see how that goes. I haven't tested my Mature yet, I have her at lv84.
My top yellow for the Mecha Goenitz run is King 97, and at lv85 she can't do shit to Yashiro, she dies too fast. I'll see how that changes at 90.

I really appreciate that they display the actual CP buff given by the episode buffs. It was really weird before when you thought you had a bonus 16k but it kept telling you your Cp is shit. Now you actually now, it really helps.

On the collab, I got Shy Jin (I'm holding out for adult Xiaoyu and Geese, no luck yet), and I unlocked armor King. No Paul yet.

edit  Wrath Chizuru in 2:40 without the cooldown cards (but with a card set that gives me about 10% atk buff), and 2:10 with the cooldown. The cooldown is effective, but I'm 80% sure the lv90 thing is a big deal, that's the only notable difference with my runs yesterday when I couldn't get below 5 minutes and I was only a couple thousand CP lower.

Okay, serious question:

Is there any way to modify your Support List for characters other people use at all? Or does the game do it automatically by itself?
Because I cannot find the option anywhere and it's honestly bugging me.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Darkflare on November 29, 2019, 09:23:05 pm
Hey uh....the character you have as the support you send to others is the last leader character you used, isn't it?

Yep.
It sucks honestly since you change your leader so much while playing story.

So no.

Post by: Xhominid on November 29, 2019, 09:27:28 pm
Thanks for that, it honestly bugs the hell out of me that there is no option to really "change and keep it static"

EDIT: I may be seen as a complete fool... but I'm going all in and then some to get this Xiayou Special Card.
Atleast my work hasn't completely gone in vain(since I can just go through Hard Mode to hit the pity selection at this point) but yeah, threw in alot of Stones for this since basically I'm not going for Kazuya and Heihachi and I'm not really planning on consistently putting cash in this game or chasing after every broken unit.

Well I managed to max out my Zero 01, showering him with every boss souls, blue souls, and rainbow souls we got.
I also spent more money to roll grown up Xiaoyu than I could have to just buy schoolgirl Xiaoyu but I'm not into schoolgirls and I wanted that yellow character (no I don't mean her skin) for the Mecha Goenitz episode (Orochi Shermie is fucking awful with her whip that just KEEPS FUCKING GOING and her sudden kiss that catches you from several screens away and you don't see anything coming). I got like 6 hood Jin before I rolled Xiaoyu...
I bought everything in the Tekken Rush shop (Armor King, souls, card, capsules), so I'll use everything else for the gold. I also got Paul in the roulette so the souls went to his card and to limit breaking him. Now I only want Heihachi and I'll be good to go.

Which in turn will ultimately affect all servers in the long run.

The news highlights buffs for major festa chars which are pretty outdated for JP KR servers and when they hit global, the changes would have already been applied so that hopefully nobody will feel discouraged from picking up their fav chars.

welp.

i got paid today, which means i went ahead and bought schoolgirl xiaoyu to complete the collection.

i then used those extra rubies to do a multi and got heihachi within the first multi, then did 3 more multis for xiaoyu and got her!

and if that wasnt lucky enough, i literally got paul himself and then used those extra souls ive been farming for awhile to get his battle card.

so now the tekken collection is complete! woop!

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on December 06, 2019, 07:35:18 pm
I might be interested in him (I'm also waiting for Orochi Shermie, if she's half of the horrible bitch she is to fight in the Mecha Goenitz quest). But I though there was also a datamine showing Rock ?

I'm on the slowwwwww grind for Mecha Goenitz (over lv30 buffs, still at least 10k CP too low). I maxed out my dress Xiaoyu with the AS souls, and I'm building up Wrath Chizuru because apparently the game claims Mecha Goenitz's berserk phase gives advantage to balance type fighters, even though I have no idea what advantage you actually get in those boss battles. She's not strong, but I like her.
I'm kicking my King 97 off my yellow team because god damn her skills are such a pain to chain together. The only way Tornado Kick chains into Trap Kick is if you launched the enemy up with Venom Strike first, and it's still difficult. Oh, but the fireball is still nice in pvp.
I really appreciate the way the epic quest makes you grind previous stages for those stat bonuses, at this point I'm comfortable wiping the floor with Envy Mary with a lv47 Yashiro, it's nice that it allows you to test out low level characters without the absolute need to max out everyone. On the other hand, I can't figure out how to beat Wrath Chizuru without a high level bleed user like Andy. My lv90 4* green Ryo can't do anything if she jut heals half of any direct hit I deal (it takes him over 10 minutes to kill her raid form), whereas bleed just takes out five times as much health as a normal hit. Say Ryo hits 20k, she instantly heals 9k, but Andy's bleed damage would also take out 90k at the same time on top of the normal hit. And I don't see any good 4* green unit that can do that.

GOT MECHA GOENITZ. With lv ~31 buffs and maxed Xiaoyu (16k CP with a bunch of maxed 5* cards and the Benimaru Lightning Gentleman set with a Maxima cooldown for the hell of it) to deal enough damage (wiping entire bars in seconds), and a strong red fighter to break the regenerating pillars that are apparently green. ...... And dodging all the crashes by staying away from the red tornado (or instantly wiping all the swarming enemies with one super to turn off the tornado immediately). On top of playing near perfectly and timing your super invulnerability to not get OHKO by fucking everything.
What a fucking pain.
And now... The unique skill cards in the final section of the quest.

Currently doing Mecha Goenitz challenges by using as much treasure gained from the Tekken event to power up Baseball Yuri.  Plan is to have Envy Mary as the leader and grain Att+ and Cooldown reduction for females giving Baseball Yuri enough resources for high damage at a quick pace.

And then have to do the same for Envy Mary to get through her own final challenges which is an even bigger grind.

Yeah, the grinding was way overshot, he's a pushover once you know what to do (use a red fighter to stop the regeneration, time anything with invulnerability when he does that full screen lightning, dodge the dash grab Yamidoukoku). I can clear him in under 2'30, which is way more than enough to get the rainbow souls from the last mission... if I can make it 3 more times without the game crashing 250 times.

TL;DR: Everyone is decent, but holy fuck Genderbent Chang is gonna fuck up the pvp meta, she is literally tank city. She will piss you off in pvp if you do not have a decent team. If you want to be meta, roll for her.

Fair warning, these will probably all be put in 2 banners of 3 each, meaning the rates might be a bit harsher if you are looking for a specific character

If you aren't interested in any of these, it's completely fine to skip all of these, none of them break the meta so much that you need to go for someone right off the bat just to keep up.

I missed her and now am regretting like crazy.
She's a total CC queen and has high defense.


Regarding the Orochi trio...
Can't say that I recommend them over Chang.
They are said by Netmarble to be buffed, but we don't know what to expect.

Any of the tekken characters will be fine for you to carry you in pvp for more rubies.

The free jin is a great free unit all around.

Also focus on raising the characters given via login quests, those are easily free level 80 characters.

I love Andy 98's entire gameplay concept with the bleed resist down, bleed, and the sharp attack core that deal even more bleed damage on bleeding targets, plus he's a good tank. His battle card is super lame but it's legit full screen so that's pretty good.
Mai 95 is rather popular with high offense and pretty safe and effective skills, then Mai 97 from the Starving Wolves banner is a straight upgrade of that with extra burn damage oh, other way around, Mai 95 gets 25% extra burn damage with full core unlock. But 97 gets more power per crit so more supers. 25% extra burn is really good though.
Kensou 99 is a good generic offensive character, there's Kensou 94 who's similar plus a projectile but he's defensive, I don't know how good that makes him
King 98 seems to be one of the better Kings but I don't have her, and I've seen comments that King 94 is straight up broken but I don't know
Among my first characters I really liked Takuma 98 but I left him half built a while ago so I don't know how he holds
Terry 96 seems pretty effective and standard but I left him at lv80 without pushing him because I don't really like Terry
Robert 98 seems to be the better Robert, though not very high ranked
Then there's the time limited characters, like Geese 14, Zero, the Tekken characters who are all very good. Any of them can be your top guy. Orochi Iori is very popular but I'm not too much into him.

There are nice grapplers like Armor King, Vice 98, Mary/Envy Mary, but the problem with those is that unless you're already maxed at lv90, their attacks will not complete because of the "stuck" mechanic - hitting an enemy much stronger than you will not register as a hit so none of the grab attacks will do shit (Chris also counts, his specials need to hit to continue, which is bullshit)

here's a guide from me on how to whoop mech goenitz' ass with just kazuya and a decent red despite being super under powered.

you don't NEED geese at all, any decent red is fine, you just need the red to break the hp regen wall.

if you don't possess kazuya's sp card, use his skill 3 at the very last second of the phase where he's about to drop the electric bomb so you can use his skill 3 immunity to not die

If you didn't get him from the roulette, but you got enough souls from it, go to the craft menu to exchange him for those souls.
Schoolgirl Xiaoyu can only be obtained by paying money from the Tekken Shop (the one with the red spot on the left of the main screen), and the last 3 can only be obtained  in the two gachas.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)

it takes 200 souls to craft paul, which is around 2k-4k rubies depending on your luck. go for triple x2 soul bingos, thats the easiest way to get enough souls for him.

its 150 souls for his SP card which is should be 1k-2.5k

Don't pull for Mr. Big and Xiangfei, those two are NOT worth wasting your rubies on at all. Use them for other units.

Still trying to get Paul in that freaking roulette
Have you been picking up the tickets every day and trying to get three identical rolls in a row (removing unwanted rolls and keeping the other two until you get three identical rolls) to get some extra souls with a bingo ? I used souls to limit break him to lv78 which means I rolled like 280 souls (edit - minus 50 from getting his affinity to 15 but plus 150 that I used on his battle card). It's been a couple of weeks of free tickets, there's no reason you shouldn't have very close to 200 souls to just craft him. And if you want to try paying rubies to roll him in the roulette, the secret shop also gives 10 tickets for 150 rubies every time the shop resets (I think that's twice a day), which is 100 rubies less than rolling the roulette 10 times directly with rubies.

My advice is to purchase the least expensive Tekken pack since at this point you only have a few days left to get those characters and you need to save up rubies for better FES stuff in the coming weeks.  With the Tekken pack, you should get enough Rubies to spend on the ticket bundle in the secret shop for Paul.  Remember to aim for the bingo on his souls instead of pulling one by one.  This is important.

For the Holiday stuff, I would recommend avoiding them or spending on the daily holiday bundle once for rubies and few summon tokens until you get the unit you want.  Also, take advantage of the Exciting Roulette and pull for 15/30 ruby bingo.

Avoid Mr.Big and Xiangfei unless for some reason you are satisfied with your pulls that you feel like spending 4k rubies on them.

Finally, mind your resources.  You have plenty of options to get through the events and in game in case you fail to get the ones you missed out and it's all free.

- (Hinted) Old festa chars will get buffed (i.e. Orochi Yashiro, Chris, Shermie, Omega Rugal, Goenitz, Krizalid, etc) by early as next week!
And it's official (https://www.reddit.com/r/KOFALLSTAR/comments/e8x5lp/buffs_to_old_fes_characters_confirmed/)

Very blessed O.Leona got some adjustments and now I'm regretting not pulling Omega Rugal.

Those official Korean KOF: AllStar Twitch live streams is what I watch every tuesdays lol.
They provide the earliest hints and news straight from Netmarble devs (since they are on site with them) so if I see anything interesting and post them on here, trust my words on them.

Plus, my fav Tekken pro player: Knee is on there as a panel. More fun to watch :P

Still trying to get Paul in that freaking roulette
Have you been picking up the tickets every day and trying to get three identical rolls in a row (removing unwanted rolls and keeping the other two until you get three identical rolls) to get some extra souls with a bingo ?

Well, I don't play everyday so I didn't get every ticket in this event. And yes, I try the bingo stuff but here's the thing:
That roulette has 7 slots, 5 of these are Paul's items, right?! it happened more than one time I use 5 tickets and 4 of these tickets I got the Yellow thing or the box and sometimes all the tickets went to these 2 items ;D ;D



Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on December 16, 2019, 03:59:03 am
The yellow one is an AS soul, and it's equal to one soul to limit break any gold AS character, it's actually really good to max out any other Tekken character (or any other AS character like the epic quest characters) when you don't have their souls and before using element souls. Just recently I maxed my Paul between the AS souls and his own souls (and getting a second and a third copy of the full 5* character, that's 60 souls at once per copy), and I keep rolling for more AS soul bingo for the other characters - I'm working my way through Armor King, Kazuya and Heihachi a lot faster than the measly 12 souls a day for one character in the soul quest.
The only dud on the roulette is the capsule box, but even that is nice to have because capsule are so rare to come by and there's so many characters to give them to (but I don't try to get a bingo on them if I can't get the AS souls).

A few thousand rubies piled up since Kazuya only gave me Yashiro. Honestly, I really like all 3 of them (only Chris a little bit less). Chris' fireball is massive, like, Kaiser Wave big.
Yashiro's run grab has super armor, that's an addition from the rework they got, right ? We're getting the upgraded version from the get go ?

GUYS, THERE IS A GUARANTEED TICKET FOR ONE OF THE OROCHI TRIO FOR 5K RUBIES IN THE RECOMMENDED SHOP.

I CANNOT STRESS HOW GOOD OF A DEAL THIS IS, DO NOT SLEEP ON IT.

that is literally one of the best deals ever, each of the orochi trio has been buffed a ton so now theyre all fantastic choices. DO NOT SKIP OUT ON THAT IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH RUBIES. 5K IS NOT HARD TO MAKE UP.

Post by: Byakko on December 17, 2019, 07:45:38 pm
I thought about it, but the ruby rolling gave me a whole bunch of other 5*, I think only one roll gave me nothing of value, while a few rolls gave me 2 5* and one even gave me 3, including two I didn't have and one I was currently trying to build up. OTOH I spent more than 5k rubies so...
But yeah, if you specifically need one Orochi and nothing else from the base pool, that ticket is great because the odds to get them in the gacha are NOT good. And all 3 seem damn good.

Finally got through Epic Quest 5 Lv.45 below challenges against Greed Rugal.

Buffs include all stats around lv.40, Greed Rugal's cores at Lv.11 maybe 10 is enough, team was Envy Marie with Baseball Yuri max level, all cores unlocked, no capsule buffs needed instead save that for the top FES characters, standard Kula set cards and cooldown reductions option cards, Mecha Goenitz striker for HP maintaining because Baseball Yuri's relations aren't helpful. 

Onto the next set.  Fun fun.

Are the Orochi Kings' cards worth pulling or are their leader skills good enough to keep them at a low level?  Their tier placement is very tempting to spend the 5k rubies but then I'd have to spend more for their battle cards. Ended up getting a random O.Chris card from a token and now getting O.Chris has became a priority for me.

My episode 0 buffs are around lv45 and my Andy at 20k CP still can't clear Wrath Chizuru in the reunion chapter below 6 minutes, so I can't get those 50 souls for her. Bleed with bleed cards are not enough, Mature is not enough, Kyo 96's burn damage isn't enough, Paul isn't enough, my other top units at 20k CP with my best cards aren't enough... I'm kind of out of option.
I did get both Wrath Chizuru and Mecha Goenitz's cards the day after lui, I even finished all of Mecha's last missions, but Wrath is still shafting me.
I just got Orochi Shermie from a single roll, and she's green and deals shock damage, I'll try to build her up and see if she's better.

Try to grind up the Wrath Chizaru buffs to around lv.11 and see how it goes.  At this point, one of your units should be capable of Auto-beating stage 3-11 to farm you those items.

Even better with the current Holiday Choi event that gives you 100 AP up to 3 times.

Orochi Shermie is the next best Green unit as we are months away from Ash arriving here.  Try to get her special card if you are aiming to make her the leader just so you can squeeze more damage while stopping the clock.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on December 21, 2019, 06:04:34 pm
So I tried to guess how well Orochi Shermie can do against that Epic Quest chapter 5-3. First, shock damage doesn't seem nearly as effective as bleed (I tried with Geese 14 and Heihachi), the extra damage isn't that good and it's mostly for the stun, which isn't particularly useful in raid. Second, Shermie's rolls seem shorter than everyone else's ?? She doesn't go far enough to escape the claw swipes or the wind wave that Wrath Chizuru creates at the end of the screen (she's faster when just running). I'm really not sure she's made for that, she looks like a PvP monster but raid missions are not for her. She does charge up her power gauge super fast, though, that's nice. But she still relies more on direct damage than extra shock damage, and Wrath Chizuru heals up most of the direct damage she takes, so I don't think it'll do that much even to spam her finishers.

So I just raised my raid level a bit, went with the cooldown cards and my top set cards, and Andy '98 got me all the souls from 5-3 Wrath Chizuru and that's that. Just spam your raid level up. It also looks like the update fixed the crashes on Mecha Goenitz, so I finished everything on him too. The only missions I have left are for the tickets (and the topaz but I don't care about those) and I already have everyone's 3 and 4* option cards at high enough levels so I think I'm done with Epic Quest episode 0. I'll be waiting for that episode 1.

Iori was added to the base pool after the Tekken event, I think K' and Kyo 95 have only been added just now. K's battle card is also in the base pool now (and available in the card exchange shop).
(But not the Step Up weirdly).
K' and Kyo 95 were the first Step Up pair, King 97 and Maxima were the second, so I assume that means they'll join too, but only in a month.
I'm just wondering why the Starving Wolves are still in their own banner. Is it because they're Epic Quest bonus ?

Looking at the ludicrous "beat Wrath in less than 150 seconds" mission and how my currently build could barely rake in the minimal to get her exclusive special card, I too lost interest to go further.  Topazes are only worth the tickets for League and Arena.  Maybe if the element tickets allow manual selection instead of a 20% of getting the unit you need might the topazes have some use.  The entire shop needs an overhaul in general.

Oh right, speaking of shops - Kyo 95's and K's souls are NOT available in the dust exchange shop, but Iori 98 is (and all the selectors I can think of do have them available). That's weird, I want to think they forgot about that.
Yeah, the selectors and tickets available at the shops are pretty useless. I just stop on clear tickets for league coins and Geese souls for arena.

More reason not to go all out on Big and Xiangfei at rhe moment.
Eh, it's still 500 rubies for a full roll of 10 and you still have the same chance of getting other 5*, even if you're more likely to get one of those two. And you get a guaranteed ticket for the characters and their battle cards within 4000 rubies, which is much better than the regular gachas. It's also easier to get more souls for a 5*, so you can get to lv90 more easily. As long as the characters are not complete trash, the step up isn't half bad. Of course, the previous two step-ups were better than this one, but still.

Well I got under 2 minutes in the Orochi team time attack and the token reward gave me Chris, sooooo I have the full team now. Wow. Now to get them all to lv90 within the next 3 months...

Step Up is the worst deal in the game as they are actually general pool units in other versions and WILL be added in to the general pool. They're good as free units but when being put in an exclusive banner that costs more rubies than just getting them in other banners? Nah, not worth at all.

Only spent on the 3 Gold Summon tokens for the females and pulled Fem-Billy.  Not bad and has a relation buff with Festival-Billy.  Useful to grind up coins on the event roadmap.

Later down on the road, from the JP servers there will likely be summon tickets for these characters to save up rubies much like the Tekken Box event that occured a while ago.

Nameless has been datamined for the JPN version of the game recently, along with his theme!

He is confirmed to be a purple FES character with 2(!!!) SP skills, 1st one being his Ultra with the explosion summoning the spirit of that girl, and the other one being his giant Drill attack.

(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/514115105298972672/656723495199440897/NNAMELESS_03.png)

Link to HQ version of his new theme remix straight from the game files (uploaded by yours truly): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EuesRsr7trceBWkc1vONSHuzNlwH-mIp/view?usp=sharing


The fact that a TON of stuff has been datamined from him compared to other characters suggests that he is close to being complete and released in the JPN/KRN server and might be released in the GBL server afterwards shortly.

That's obviously not what I'm talking about. In fact I don't know if KoF:Kyo could be described as non canon, but obviously this is a background character that barely showed up in one side game outside the main series and it's just ridiculous to expect these filler characters to ever show up again. I don't expect anyone at SNK right now knows she exists. I'd expect Kyoko or Miss X or Fio to show up long before someone remembers the Kusanagi cousins, or, say, whatever self-insert was added for the dating sims (both the boys and girls versions), because those are actual characters we've seen before. Did KoF:Kyo even ever made it out of Japan ?

Been using Festive Choi against Ep.5 Envy Blue Mary for a while now.  For starters, what lead me to using him is his ability to restore health upon landing a Critical Hit.  Pair him with the Tekken Set cards for an increase in critical damage.  Reason is that you are always in a constant burn state and this manages a bit.  He also is at a cost of 45 which is needed to get through the last challenge.

I only used available souls from the holiday shop to get him to Lv.75.  Added him his cores and gave him little capsule buffs to keep up against Envy Blue Mary.  Baseball Yuri fills in as the leader to stack up damage in combos giving him more health to boost.

Other than that, I ain't farming any souls for him after getting through Ep.5 Envy Marie Cost Challenges.

Supposedly Silver Blue Ryo '98 works too, but haven't tried him out.

The 2020 New Years Ruby mission is up! Pretty good deal if you ask me, decent Yellow ATK in the form of NY Andy, his free SP card and a bunch of souls.

And I JUST got his card from one of the x10 pulls.

Question:  How good is Nameless now that he's out in JPN?  He is now Top 10 but how exactly?  After Orochi and no Zero, debating if he is worth investing rubies onto next.

Post by: Byakko on January 08, 2020, 08:21:20 pm
This one Japanese tier list (https://altema.jp/kofallstar/chararea/5) I follow puts him at the top together with Orochi, citing a skill that nullifies damage taken, a core passive that gives a chance for super armor plus deals 150% burn damage when hitting with a skill (any skill), another passive gives him power gauge for every crit (3 second cooldown) plus penetration up by 650, he has a skill that has a specific effect in PvP only (seals roll and the last hit seals the enemy's active skills that are strike type (not blast or grab), and his last skill increases his attack by 45% of his defense*. So he's another nightmare in PvP with a super defensive build. I assume he's fine in PvE, but his high rank is for PvP.

*edit - fixed.

I'm glad the actual 2020 event is finally there (and not just a random banner with 8 characters, although the 100 free summons is super nice), but I'm still waiting for Epic Quest episode 1. I guess the datamine meant nothing and the next thing we'll get is Wonderland as announced.

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on January 11, 2020, 04:07:11 pm
So far, purple units are the only main counter against T7 Jin.  If you haven't purchased the ludicrously priced Schoolgirl Xiaoyu during the Tekken fest, Shermie '97 can do fine against him during the current League format.  What I do first is have one of my units fire a skill to bait T7 Jin to do an emergency roll, then quickly switch over to Shermie and pray she doesn't die quickly while going for the offense.  But that's only if T7 Jin is selected first.  If not, have another unit in hand to finish off that selected unit before T7 Jin arrives.

Add in every capsule to Shermie '97 until she is +99 maxed, all cores unlocked (soul dust can be exchanged to get her souls and have it level up to 90), and finally have some Options cards that either lower the skill cooldown or decrease damages from blue units all maxed out, tho with the latter you won't need it if you have the skill cooldown cards.  If you have the KOFxTekken option card or the Tekken set cards, they can be good here.  Else have the Kula set cards to go along.

It's not always guaranteed as I still have my losses against T7 Jin.  He really is that insane to fight if he is the leader.

Post by: Byakko on January 11, 2020, 05:41:59 pm
I just tank through everyone with Orochi Yashiro and Andy. The annoying ones like Jin and Lady Chang I just bleed them once then keep rolling away while their super armor is up (and try to not get stunned), and bleed them again. My third spot I swap between Jin and Armor King, but I feel like I can never get my own super armor to trigger nearly as often for nearly as long as the AI's does.
... Does the color advantage work in arena / league ?? I was under the impression it wasn't taken into account.

Not all the time.  My red element KOFXIV Geese build can steamroll every top blue FES in Arena although still loses to random Zero shenanigans.

I suggested Shermie as an option to get through T7 Jin if they don't have FES stuff like Pretty Chang and it worked well for me tho it depends on the build.

Funny enough after looking around it turns out Pretty Chang is a reliable counter against Tekken stuff.

Geese (if that's who you are referring to) is way more about defense than offense, his main gimmick is that he draws power and skill cooldowns go lower when *he gets hit*, so it's sorta fucked against jin regardless. the tekken option does help alot since it procs super armor. i suggest to NOT try to counter or block until Geese gets superarmor, which is a huge maybe since 1/3 times it might not activate. When super armor activates, try to dodge as much as you can until you can strike.

DO NOT TRY TO COUNTER JIN WHILE HE HAS SUPERAMOR. He will fuck you up, he even fucks up my Orochi units, that's how scary he is.

Jin is the absolute bane of defense pvp rn and you are right to feel screwed over, he's annoying.



If anyone wants to know which cheap/welfare units are decent in defense week when used right, I suggest building the following characters up:

Shermie (for 65+ damage leadership for all characters if their hp is high)

Sentai Ralf and Clark (Big damage hits, OTG's for both characters, SuperArmor Attacks and insta-laser from afar can be quite useful)

Ryo 95 (Hits hard upclose, has health regen if hp is less than 50, pairs extremely well with summer/tekken option with superarmor on hit)

Brian Battler 98 (Decent rushdown potential, 3rd skill does multi-hit super armor)

Mecha Goenitz (HE IS A MONSTER, with 5 star Yuri set and Tekken/Summer Option and 3 bar super card. Yuri set allows for him to gain power when hit meaning its almost guaranteed to use his supers in a combo when he is hit. He has alot of health and has native health regen as well, so youre basically hitting a punching bag who will hit back if he activates super armor and will hit back. VERY useful counter to super offensive types.)

Summer Angel (Hits very hard, has DEF to ATK attribute on her skills, Poison, has multi-hit super armor on skill 1)

Halloween Yashiro (Hits hard, has stun attack on skill 3)

96 Chizuru (Has alot of multi-hit attacks, easy to chain too, and has a debuff that decreases enemy skill damage when hit)

New Years Geese (Skill 1 enables stun on crit hit, skill 2 disables roll entirely for the enemy so they can't escape (from death kek) and recovers HP when using super)

I cannot stress this enough: if you have summer option or tekken x kof option, use them on any characters above.

if you get attacked, try to tag to interrupt as it can help escape easily and counter via a mid-air/otg punish.

Good luck on the rest of defense week!

I will put a guide for Balance week whenever that comes on soon.

I do, but it's just a guy who went around picking up random people all over the place.

Edit - the Whip roulette has gold KoF souls too, neat. But you only get 3 free tickets a day... the shop sells 30 tickets for a dollar (you can buy up to 30x10), that's not too bad. I spent all my ruby stockpile (in the 5 digits from rushing the story mode halfway through expert) on getting Krizalid, that was rough. I hope they don't release nameless straight away, give us something like Igniz that I can ignore.

Someone else has problems with the game?, it is very good and everything but it is annoying not being able to do well the events and modes such as the time trial and fight in the final levels of Mary, Rugal, Chizuru and Cyber Goenitz because the game closes very often even when I want to improve some character or on loading screens :(
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on January 15, 2020, 08:26:07 pm
What device do you have, is it old ? That sort of things happened a lot at the beginning on the Mecha Goenitz stage, the game would just get stuck and then stop or immediately quit, but there was an update a few months back and I haven't had anything like that since then. Sometimes I still get "connection issues" where the game tries to load a victory screen, fails, tells me to check my Internet connection, and then gets stuck on the same screen without loading the victory animation, but it doesn't happen nearly as often as it did a few months back.

My cell phone is a Motorola G6 version of Android 9, I have it from last year and so far all the games (even Chinese and Japanese with heavier graphics) that I had including emulators work very well in this is where I have more problems that are The screen part is checked and they appear as graphic errors and it closes (but not the application because when I open it it returns to the home screen) the problem is that it comes at random, even played automatically allowing all the energy to be spent to the events and nothing happened

Pulled Wonderland Yuri for this go round from a card pack and liking her leader skill greatly assisting Defense units like Fem-Chang and T7 Jin.  No longer have to rely on Shermie after this.

Interesting to know how good the Tea Party set is.  Lately I feel these new set card releases (Tekken set and Summer set) are trying to get us away from the Kula sets.

Fem-Zero is one of them.

Those lightning (?) spheres threw me off, but I guess that's based on the artwork for his battle card. They're bringing back the weird shoulder plates, shame, they managed to make it look less dumb until then...

In League, the green Jin is more of a pain than the blue was, in defense there were some decent options to tank and evade, but the balance characters that are available are a lot more squishy, with an invulnerability that runs out before Jin's combos end...

Terry '03 is the next FES pick and after trying him out in Score Attack, geez he is so busted.  Guessing the Samsho crossover will arrive next week then.

Also the new League event still carries the "KO only one character" rule for Attack class.

Models of EQ2 got shown and all those different MUGEN Kyo/Iori clones are practically reincarnated here.
