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



(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/635340057032654869/646298455152787473/geese_fes.png)
also, after the collab is done, KOF XIV Goose Howard will be available in the FES banner.

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.

Post by: Deadface on November 22, 2019, 05:08:37 AM
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.

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
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.

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.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

ROCK HOWARD is next for the JPN version.

His theme (which is the KOF XIV theme), model, skills, voices and anims are done and are in the files and are likely gonna be implemented at the end of Feb. Most likely an FES. Shining Knuckle and Neo Deadly Rave are his 2, yes, 2(!)ult  finishers.

Post by: Byakko on February 04, 2020, 02:08:25 PM
They barely scrapped anything from 98 and after, and some characters have their best version in those years. The problem is that, like all gacha games, they release between 2 and 5 characters at a time so that they can sell every single one for a high price (with a few free units here and there), that's what takes forever (and they absolutely need to hit all the seasonal events all year round). Make 8 characters for 30 bucks and it'll go faster. Hell, take all the seasonal alts and make them real characters and it'll go faster. A gacha game definitely doesn't need nearly as much tedious fine tuning and balancing as a real fighting game, it only needs to upgrade some characters here and there to keep up with the power creep.

Lol the new Valentine event in Japan has idol Alice behind a straight paywall just like schoolgirl Xiaoyu. Okay.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kolossoni on February 04, 2020, 02:50:29 PM
I'm fine with direct sales of characters cuz that's better than gambling (which gacha is).

Problem is we only barely scratched the surface of 98 and we still have the rest of NESTS Saga and Ash Saga right after.
Since KOF XV is right around the corner, the roster for KOF All Star is going to be huge lol.

Welp, made a new JPN account and re-rolled for Zeroko.

After spending awhile with her, I kiiind of don't like her from both a design and moveset perspective. She's good and all but I still maintain she's not needed at all and that O.Zero is still way better overall.

So instead I re-rolled for Idol Kula, who is FES. She's super fun to play and is way more worth it than Zeroko IMO especially since you can use her f2p battle card for her.

Alright, I can do False Saisyu's 1-10 in about 8 minutes (and I got his 5* option card already). Time to grind that bonus.
Jesus Christ that burn damage. It's in the hundreds if he just hits you, but it jumps to the thousands if you hit him when he has super armor. Orochi's auto heal is enough to offset that hard burn damage, but I don't see how you can deal with that without Orochi and Mecha Goenitz's heal support and a full set of the maxed Tekken cards (and I guess the Wonderland set too).
(Also I don't imagine anyone will bother building up the terrible "burn reduction" cards, is that even worth replacing a Tekken option card or cooldown or whatever other 6* option card)

And the fight against Mature that just replaces her bleed with burn - just. Don't. Get. Hit. At all. This shit drains you so fast, especially with her repeated slash swipes.

ya boi got Kyo without having to even do more than 1 multi for the card HAH

As for Mukai, I feel that he has enough counters to warrant being manageable in PvP (Kazuya and Terry 03 come to mind) so I might skip him.

I'll start touching PvP again when we get the other arena characters (Eiji and Krauser, right ?) and maybe if I can connect to the championship/tournament mode at all.
Not interested in Kyo XIII and Mukai so I'll hoard a bit. I'm surprised they decide to have two FES banners at the same time, now if only they planned to use that money for better servers... I have a hard time even finishing the Saisyu 1-10 without the game telling me it can't connect and blaming my connection (fuck you it's not my connection).

I saw the whole thing live.

They said the collab is: (A) a franchise from Japan, (B) a HUGE (yes they emphasized HUGE) IP.
The panel theorized that the date will be around late April...

I think it's either Street Figter or DOA. The panels thought One Piece as well lol.

Post by: Byakko on February 20, 2020, 06:33:10 PM
Finally got Bad Dad Saisyu.
CP buff 12k (lv21-23), strategy buff lv11, I was stuck at 2:36 with my full team (balance, attack, defense, scrapping the bottom of the barrel to push up Mecha Goenitz's pathetic CP) but then I got lucky and he was vulnerable to Balance the whole match and Orochi (23k CP) took him out in 2:10.
So, grind for weeks or get lucky.

For the next collab : IINM the Tekken collab was revealed in summer showing 2 characters, and it only was released in November, so that still took a while...

*Gets Mukai on the first 10 pull, 2 pulls and got his card too.*



Anyway, Samurai Shodown is coming in 3 days. Seems Haohmaru is the special star of it ala Jin from Tekken, some special login with Charlotte, and a Super Mission with Ukyo.

Gentlemen, prepare yourselves!

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on February 21, 2020, 11:40:03 AM
Uh, apparently they'll throw Nakoruru in this collab rather than package her as a KoFXIV character after all.
If Haohmaru can be shop-bought like Armor King, then all I want is Rimururu, she looks nice.

No wait, the forum post says you get Amakusa by collecting items, but the game says Haohmaru is in the event dungeon... Haomaru's not gonna be free, is he.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: lui on February 21, 2020, 11:58:07 AM
Nakoruru was always meant to be the tie in FES for Samsho in the same vein that Geese XiV tied into Tekken because of his guest appearance. She still will be labelled "KoF XiV". Since she is labelled XIV Nakoruru, her soul quest doesn't disappear when the collab ends and she will appear on the Kaya Banner too.

Haohmaru is not free. He is on a split banner with Rimururu.

Genjuro is gonna be abother banner with Charlotte.

Amakusa is gotten free via a score grind event ala Armor King.

Ukyo is free via log-in.

Oh, right. Also she'll use KoF souls instead of AS souls. (Did we ever get purple AS souls for loli Chang ?)

The in-game pop-up puts Charlotte's portrait on the check-in reward text and Ukyo's portrait on the mission text, implying they're both free. So basically the pop-up is misleading bullshit because someone at Netmarble doesn't grasp visual advertisement then, okay.
At least I can stick to the Haoh/Rim banner, nice.

~Concentrate on using every capsule gained on Orochi and O.Zero until they are maxed out.  Other characters I would recommend would be the 5* ones you gained for free (Athena, Terry, Mature, Vice, Kyo), preferably Mature and Kyo and attempt to get K' whenever you get a ticket selector.

Once you maximized O.Zero and Orochi, go for the Arena challenge with them (skip league unless you are ready to die painlessly to Mukai) to stock up in coins for AP capsules but most importantly to get some rubies at the end of the season.  Oh, and to farm Geese materials to craft him.  That too.

~Always do daily summons and daily battle cards.  If you want to spend rubies, attempt to spend it on Fest cards like Summer, Mad Iori, or Tekken set if it ever returns.  You can still go for budget cards from the weekly dungeon to at least get a small boost until you get the Kula set cards.  If you get any Option ticket selector, aim for the one with Maxima for a skill cooldown reduction.

If I already have them at Orochi and Zero both at level 90 and the capsules are at their maximum, I don't have their battle cards :( I have the kula cards like 9 of those, and 1 of maxima
I also have the gesse battle card but I don't have the one who gets in the arena but if the version of the new year (I don't know if that's better)
I had no luck winning cards in any of the previous events except in this one that wins haohmaru and his battle card, in the tekken event I have almost all the characters except Xiaoyu but no cards

For those who are still struggling with False Saisyu, a new roulette was launched and is giving souls to craft Mai '98, who greatly reduces burn damage and leader skill boosts attack with the same element.

The downside is that for some asinine reason Netmarble has reduced the ticket bundles from 10 to 5 and keeping an addition 3 bundles via large paywalls.

Also, Ep.1 EQ unlockes the next chapter to go against False Yashiro.

Post by: Byakko on March 06, 2020, 03:32:50 AM
Also, Inferno Underworld Yamazaki gives tokens for his Guillotine card. You'll need to spend 50 rubies a day to recharge the 3 runs once a day if you hope to get enough tokens before he goes away. He'll probably come back after another 2 weeks of Clark & Ralf Inferno, but I'm not taking any chances, I missed Yashiro's card by a few tokens the first time and had to wait a while for his return.

Got False Yashiro just in time before False Orochi.
Lv 36~40 buffs, Joe 94 for his team-wide leadership, Geese 14 for the damage (24k CP) with Genjuro as a backup damage dealer when Yashiro reflects my color. Using Genjuro as main damage dealer fell a little short. Orochi Shermie seems good at breaking his defense, but she still dies fast, so she needs a good heal or a good backup, I couldn't go through him with her.

Genjuro is like a backup Orochi. Slightly better heal, much easier to maintain your offense (Orochi's movements are a bit weird and wonky), not the same armor+immunity but still nice armor. But he still has a lower attack stat.

Post by: Kirishima on March 18, 2020, 07:15:42 PM
For a moment when I read it took over 35+ levels for each buffs to make a dent to False Yashiro I got a bit concerned as my stats weren't near that.  Yet at Lv.27 it was enough to go all unga against him and unlock the unit.  Goenitz helps a lot here and Geese XIV for backup in case False Yashiro gets the green immunity aura.

You can get a couple from the current Leona roulette.  Tho you got a choice from either stockpiling on AS souls or farmining Leona souls to craft her Unit and SP Card.

Just avoid buying the $20 pack that has tickets.  Such a scam.  Only go for the $1 ones for up to 5 times.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on March 26, 2020, 01:43:02 AM
The $20 pack has 30 tickets and 150 souls, that's the entire SP card right there without the randomness of the roulette. It doesn't look so bad if you're actually rolling to complete her (and not just trying to stock up on AS souls).
In the Halloween shop I picked up the set cards but I'm keeping the tokens for now, I'm waiting to see if I get lucky in the gacha with any of the characters, and I don't know yet if I'll bother with the option cards.

Really annoyed that Eiji is a championship reward. I don't want to play a PvP tournament.

As for Ash... eh, I'm closer to getting a selector on Kaya's banner for Goenitz and I already have a special card for him, so I don't care about Ash. I need a good attack green more (O. Shermie can't take on big boss enemies)

Christ so much stuff to unpack.  Yea I don't like characters locked with craft items only accessible in Live PvP.  At least they fixed major lag issues but unless you have several FES stuff, don't expect to make any progress.

Future FES banners include Kula collection featuring all past outfits and the inclusion of the new Idol Kula.  Another is a repeat of O.Zero and the inclusion of Zeroko.

Ms. Big banner is now live and if you think Alice's insane, the price to get the full package is twice of that for $100.  And that's just the character.  You have to spend another wad of cash to get her card.

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on April 09, 2020, 07:39:01 PM
Ms. Big is locked behind a series of paid packs, but those are the same weekly / monthly packs as before that give you a bunch of rubies and battle card level up cards. If you used to buy those regularly, then it looks like you can just buy them again and you'll end up with a bonus Ms Big, apparently. But then again that's still the monthly pack that costs $100.

Check your emails for new codes that'll net you 200 rubies.

So, basically no reason to even try get Ms. Big?
Depends if you are hellbent on getting good stuff for PVP but ultimately no.  She isn't gonna dominate the meta anytime soon in PVE/PVP and there are better units that serve better results, few of them being free.  Doesn't help that you need to pay an additional $100 for her SP card.

There is a $30 Spring bundle with an automatic Summer unit ticket.  You can get Summer Angel with it that inflicts poison stats and it will really be in handy against the week long Wrath Chizuru dungeon.

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on April 11, 2020, 02:19:29 AM
You will need good Option/Set cards as well as a unit's own Special card that varies.  An example are the Tekken cards that grant a big boost in cp.  Sadly that and a few others are no longer accessible for the time being.

So far your best bets will be the Kula Set cards and Chibi K/Kula and Maxima for Option cards.  There are other good ones but those are well rounded for almost every Unit.

I've tried anything but there's not much to do but to not play this for awhile.
Typically if you max out a good card set (lv10 skill, 6* lv30) on a good FES character (purple border), you can get something in the ballpark of 23k CP. A top tier set (the kind you pay money for) should get you around 25k. That' pretty much the most you can get right now, I don't think I've seen anything beyond 26k with any combination.
You say max level character, but what's your best CP so far ?
Also, there are some rare top tier characters like Genjuro and Haohmaru who are gold and not a purple FES character, he can also get in the 23~24k range. Other than that, it'll usually be short a couple thousand CP, and those generally don't have skills or cores that make up for it (Genjuro for instance could be a couple thousand CP lower and still be top tier because of his skills and cores).

from the first part among the enemies that take sometimes to appear, try to beat them quickly without doing as many combos and between those who get up with super armor plus the boss more or less it takes 1 minute or a little less without mentioning the second part if you do not beat the bitch of athena with a super or ultra you can get to spread her special to exhaustion and more when she teleports and the last part not to speak xD
And for me, doing that mode is hell, not that I can't pass it, but for some reason of all the modes of the game on my cell phone, it is the one that closes the most and in other modes where it fills up with effects, characters and objects It does not happen so much, to the point where it becomes unbearable to do because I have to start again if it were not because they ask for it in 90% of the tasks of events I would not do it since it is a miracle if I got to finish without it closes

No. Cheaters get a modded APK where they have infinite super gauges, and they keep spamming their ultimate as they walk across all the screens (and super moves freeze the timer). It adds up to between 30 and 35 seconds depending on the character. Most characters can't normally finish it in under a couple of minutes.

The crashing is because Netmarble is awful at handling devices that are just a little older than the requirements (among other things they are awful at). My 2 year old phone kept crashing back in November, and my new phone is doing fine.

So for this period's Infinite Battle and Championship, we are limited into using KOF characters that are available in the default pool.  No costumes, collabs, or FES units.  And I've been neglacting into powering them up, oof.

Double post but right now there is currently a bug involving False Yashiro in Epic Quest 2-5 and 2-10.  He literally stands idle doing nothing allowing you a free win with ANYONE.  Take advantage of this bug whenever possible such as beating him with units that are less than 45 cost!

Two Baseball people in the summoning chamber, Vanessa and Shermie. And you get a free card for logging in. Pretty good one. My dumb question is: Is it worth it to get Vanessa's Special Card when you can just get it from the Agent & Supreme Mankind and get Ramon any time, especially with Championship's not using FeS characters?

Also, sucks because I'm stuck on Wrath Chizuru and my guys are not nearly strong enough to take her down and the lack of me actually using cards besides the Super ones.

The best choice is now K' as the pool got updated a while back.  Chizuru is still a good choice mainly for the Master Time Attack that pops every now and then.

You can get Vanessa's SP card anytime from her's and Ramon's banners.  Tho if you gained Baseball Vanessa then you can buy her SP card for $30 in 3 hours.  Not worth it unless you like using her.

Baseball Vanessa is really great (Freeze chances, OTG combos, Super Armor triggers on those with Armor) if you need a good unit for PVP and League/Infinite Battle.  Depends on what FES category you are lacking at.

Oh, OK, I have no investment in PvP so I didn't care about her. I try to do the championship to get Eiji, but then I come up against an Orochi who keeps dodging, he heals if I don't chase after him, and if I do chase him, he hits me once and runs away. So I really don't care to invest anything in that mode...

Out of the wazoo, a new banner is added that is a collection of past Kula seasonals and includes the newly released Idol Kula.  Both this and the O.Zero/Zeroko banner ends on 3/14.  Probably around that time is the big May update that includes the collab and Ruby Refund.

Personally I hold off this.  Way too much rubies to invest so save up for either the collab or Nameless.  Another reason is that if you need Halloween Kula, use the Seasonal Ticket that they are giving out that also includes access to Kula's SP Card for free at the 7th day.

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on May 07, 2020, 02:05:12 PM
The units have been selected and they were exactly as I thought.

~Becky Lynch was a lock the moment this was announce and from the looks of it the only female added.
~The Undertaker, likely a FES unit.  Hope he's PvP viable at least.
~John Cena.  I'm convinced the whole $200+ Ms.Big package was all just to fund his image rights.  Hope he is free like Classic Jin, Ukyo, and Kondo.
~The Rock.  Yes, The Rock.  And it is the current modern era look instead of the Attitude Era.
~Seth Rollins, which is surprising tho he reps the villian side so there's that.
~Kofi Kingston.  This one I had a feeling since Xavier Woods promoted the game on his channel.  I kinda hope Woods and Big E also made it as 45 Cost unit.  We haven't got anyone new since Holiday Choi.

Either Kofi or Becky are gonna be crafted via roulette.


Worth noting that Roman Reigns is not among the pool, mostly due to the current situation he is having with WWE and how he is barely featured in any ads.  Even more absent is The Fiend who is extremely popular in the brand and would've blended well in the KOF-verse.

That'll likely be Kofi Kingston especially if it means decorating the whole menu with New Day stuff.

My predictions for how the banners will be made:  Season 1 will be Seth and Becky representing the current era of WWE, Season 2 wiill be The Rock and The Undertaker representing the Attitude Era, John Cena to be available via rewards in the collab event along with his SP card which means have lots of AP potions, and Kofi via Roulette.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: lui on May 08, 2020, 02:35:51 PM
~The Undertaker, likely a FES unit.  Hope he's PvP viable at least.

collab units do not directly get FES. previous collab-related FES are actually just KOF tie-ins

for example:

Tekken 7 collab FES was Geese Howard XIV, because of his guest appearance in Tekken 7, however he isn't counted among Tekken 7 characters so his banner could re-run, which it already has in JPN

Samsho collab FES was Nakoruru XIV, as she appeared in KOF XIV, but just like Geese, she isn't counted among collab characters so her banner can also re-run after the collab was done, which it also did in JPN.


If there was an FES for this collab it would most likely be a KOF Wrestler to tie in with it. Maybe a WWE variant of Angel/Clark? NM recently did that with Baseball Vanessa,  as that event was actually a promotion for a IRL Taiwanese Baseball Team.

He's available in the Kaya banner. Nako isn't, though.
Tizoc(king of dinos) would be a great kof character that would match with the event.
Tizoc's model was datamined, along with other KoF XI and XIII characters. Dunno if that means anything for this event.

Tizoc would make a lot of sense as K.O.D.  Tho I feel like we are gonna get XIV Rock Howard because of the pun with Dwayne Johnson, probably not intentional.  Wasn't his banner image datamined for Global too?

Omega Rugal or Orochi Iori are fine.

Omega Rugal is 100 percent amazing for PvP but he's not that great for PvE

Orochi Iori is okay for PvP but is by far one of the best PvE characters overall and has a leadership that affects 60 percent of the roster

So just think about your priorities and which mode you want to invest in.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)

it is good orochi leona? won her for completing the bar and they give you a random character between the orochis and goentiz,  I will not enter in 15 days because apparently you can choice between omega rugal, goenitz and mukai and the collaboration with the WWE does not attract much attention
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: lui on May 10, 2020, 09:20:41 PM
Orochi Leona is a very decent character overall. Her main strength is that when she has 2 skill cooldown reduction cards, she has the lowest cooldown time for all her skills in the game and can basically spam skills. Skill 1 breaks guard so it's pretty good for a rushdown-oriented player.

Her weakness essentially is that she has only 1 defensive option in the form of Super Armor in skill 1 and can easily be killed if not careful, as her DEF is slightly lower than most FES. Her Skill 3 is her worst tool overall, as it cannot guard break and is pretty easy to whiff with if you are a bit further from the opponent. Better to rely on Skill 1 and Skill 2 for constant pressure. She's better for PvP than PvE but she does decently in both. Her normal string attacks are also a bit lacking overall.


BTW if you are not logging in for 15 days for the FES selector, do NOT choose Mukai. Mukai has been made outdated overall by all the buffs that have come out for most FES and is essentially outdated by both Goenitz and Omega Rugal, who were previously two of the worst. Mukai is not that great for most PvE content and is a niche character at best for PvP right now since it's pretty easy to deal with his petrify nowdays. Omega Rugal and Goenitz, on the other hand, are among the best FES now.


IMO I would go for Goenitz over Omega Rugal in that selector. He is amazing now for both PvE and PvP, and is a must-have for Epic Quest and Time Attack. They're both pretty good though so it's just up to preference at that point.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: k6666orochi on May 10, 2020, 09:32:43 PM
thanks for the tips
I am not going to choose Mukai, I won he when it came out the first time, I am going to choose Goenitz since I have his battle card and I thought that it could be chosen as when you complete the card, but well I was wrong x'D
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: lui on May 10, 2020, 09:34:23 PM
Oh yeah, reminder that Goenitz can use his Epic Quest 3pg card, which can be gotten from Epic Quest EP. 0, Ch.5 via a LOT of grinding, It makes him alot more amazing in general and doubles his damage output

Kofi's attire is a mixture of his classic appearence along with New Day unicorn, Becky Lynch has her current horrible finisher as an Ultimate but then again the armbar would look wonky against some enemies so I can't blame them, and Undertaker looks great overall.

Micheal Cole is gonna do commentary for every WWE unit when they are in action.  Hopefully it's just that else it's gonna be weird when it comes to raising affinity and Micheal Cole's voice pops up every second.

Modern Rock showcase and his model looks either depressed or bored.  For some reason, Samoan Drop causes Bleed....ok.  Has Survivor's Banquet as his Finisher.



Undertaker showcase and defiantly the best here.  Has petrify in S1 and S3 has Super Armor.  I like how he is more melee oriented than Grappler.  Tombstone looks weird tho.

One of the upcoming Battle Cards has an Option Card with The Rock cutting a promo alongside Rock Howard and Choi doing shenanigans in a WWE stadium.  This is some Japanese Mugen fever dream.

Images of Doc Cena and Brahma Bull Rock (http://forum.netmarble.com/image/source-view?imgUrl=https://hedwig-cf.netmarble.com/forum-common/kofg/kofg_en/83e35daa7fc8472ebe2dfbfe7e65bad6_1589298266151.jpg&originUrl=http://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/19/14119).  Kofi will also be available via roulette.

New banner will include 5 WWE units instead of Seasons featuring Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins along with the 3 FES WWE ones.


Confirmed that WWE units' unique trait is disabling Super/Hyper Armor with Active Skills when they are below 50%.  Undertaker is gonna bury everyone now.

Actually Doc Cena is roulette, Kofi's status is unknown but he's probably gonna be either log-in OR event grindable


Also here's a more in-depth look at Undertaker's 2 cores:

Deadman Lv.3 [Petrifying Immunity], (PVP only) When critically strikes an enemy, the enemy's active skill cooldown is increased by 3 seconds (Cooldown Time 17 seconds)

 Dark Raider Lv.3 When health is 30% or less, when hit, reduces attack damage by 80% for 4 seconds and resets active skill cool time.  When using a skill, ignore the target's super armor (time 25 seconds), and increase attack power by 30%.


Godamn fucking RIP Mukai and Pretty Zero

Launch Trailer.  I am surprised the actual WWE media isn't promoting the reality of Becky Lynch fighting Shermie.

~PC Rock is the login bonus and comes with missions.  Kofi's available in the event collab.
~WWE Units have their own graphics like Samsho and Tekken.  They play their theme music at the end of the fight much like when an actual WWE match ends.  Nice touch.
~Thug Cena's roulette has his SP Card.  And it's 3PG because of course.

~From reddit, there is a special offer if you want a specific FES unit up to Baseball Vanessa that costs over $100.  It rewards you Rubies and tickets and more.  A cheaper alternative package will also be available. (Edit: Nope it is the same price with less content idk why)
~You can now redeem colored souls with dust as well as AP and Capsules.  Purple dusts are gained after lulling a Dupe FES unit and can be used to redeem summon tokens and purple souls.

the fact that both Cena variations have their respective BGMs is absolutely fuckin bonkers
Either they couldn't get the rights to Word Life for Thug Cena or forgotten Cena had more than one theme in his career.  Not even Jin Kazama shared the same theme for Classic and T7.

As of right now, this is where I stand at with my account for the event. (I think I've been doing an alright job since starting last week.)
I'm currently on KOF '96 CH. 3 and I've been doing the side missions as well. Sadly, I can't complete part 3 of the one side mission (Time Attack) cause NOX crashes the game right at the final part, but I shouldn't have to worry about that once my phone arrives on the 15th. (Samsung Galaxy A20)
Any tips/advice moving forward would be most welcomed.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on May 13, 2020, 07:06:17 PM
For the time being, focus on the weekly missions and reach the rewards to the 7th day.  You'll get lots of freebies this way.  Once you get everything out of the way, do the item dungeons next and attempt to get through the expert ones.

Focus every resources you get like capsules and cores and materials to Orochi Shermie and Orochi Chris to the max.  Don't spend much on anyone else including Swimsuit K'.

Watch ads for the roulettes, free rubies, and secret shops.  Don't spend rubies on multis just yet.  Tomorrow is the WWE collab with a much reduced amount to get selective tickets if you wish to spend all rubies for.  Way better than the usual FES banners.  Also, do free summons and card pulls daily.  A new change to the system will also be included for easier ways to get FES stuff at the cost of not being able to select specific ones.

The WWE collab will have free daily ruby quests so partake on those as much as possible.

Finally, the only thing worth while in the shop is the daily rubies for a month package that costs $10 for up to 2800 rubies in total.  Avoid everything else and don't spend rubies into refreshing dungeons and the like. 


Also if you feel burned out, you can login after 15 days of absence and get a free FES unit, namely Goenitz.

Post by: CozySquirtle on May 14, 2020, 01:28:27 AM
Thanks very much for the advice/tips on alot of things. However, I am a bit confused on why I should just focus building Orochi Shermie/Orochi Chris. I'm guessing they're pretty strong or just better than other units?
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on May 14, 2020, 02:05:49 AM
Yep, they are very strong and lately Netmarble is handing out free FES stuff to starters while Day 0 players had to constantly reroll or settle on Kyo '96 that later became super outclassed.  Both those Orochi units deliver status conditions of Shock and Burn respectively and hit very hard in PvE.  Those two also can handle well in League once fully maxed.

Once the collab starts tomorrow, you can binge Rubies on either the standard banner that now rewards a FES unit after the 10th multipull (sadly you don't get to choose) or the WWE banner that takes 20 multipulls but gives you a ticket for a FES unit of your choice.  I recommend the latter so you can gain Undertaker, John Cena, or The Rock.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: CozySquirtle on May 14, 2020, 02:45:50 AM
Thanks for clarifying that up for me.
Another question that I forgot to ask was about the HP/ATK/DEF capsules. Do they have a max limit?
I've been looking at videos and screenshots where a unit has +297, so I assume that must be the max limit. In my 25+ years of playing video games, I like to go with the balance route. Would you recommend that at all by chance or does it vary for each unit?
Again, assuming if the max limit is +297, each stat (if I decided to go the balance route.) would have +99.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on May 14, 2020, 03:05:53 AM
It's fixed to 99 max per stat (although apparently that's about to change with a new awakening system, it seems).
Orochi Chris and Orochi Shermie aren't that strong among other FES characters (purple border), but FES characters are always stronger than everyone else - with very rare exceptions.
The boring thing is limit breaking them up to 90. Purple KOF souls are normally hard to get by - although lately, there have been a lot of events that gave them away. But I really don't think that'll last. So getting enough souls takes a lot of time (through soul quest and the event quest against colored bosses where you can fight 2 colors per week), it can easily take a month for one character. Getting cores and EXP capsules will take a lot of time too if you don't already have one maxed out character to take on the daily challenges. It's just a very long grind to get one character to 90, and then even more to max out the +hp/atk/def capsules. And cores are the worst at the beginning, but you do need to put as many as possible in a single character.
It won't hurt to keep putting your gold KOF souls, purple souls, and red souls in your Kyo 96 and 97 because you do need to build up a roster of different colors, just keep any green or yellow soul for Chris and Shermie.

Gotcha. Thanks very much to both you and Kirishima for taking the time to explain stuff to me. I greatly appreciate it. I've only been playing for a week, but I've been enjoying the game so much, but in the same sense, I still have quite a bit to learn. That's why I figured I'd ask some of you vet players for advice/tips.

I'm on the infinite reroll for 1k rubies, reroll number 50,000 and this fucking game still DOES NOT want to give me that Goenitz.
But heads up, the infinite reroll includes Alice XIV, for some reason ?? Yeah, the one that wanted you to pay 50 bucks like a month ago. If anyone cares.
edit - literally rerolling over and over for half an hour to get him. Finally. I'm powerlifting that bitch straight to the top.

The moment I read Alice was already available in JP/KR for free made me want to forget that scummy offer.

For those that are starting out, I heavily recommend Orochi Iori.  Lots of FES here to choose for free, woah.

Loading screen had John Cena with Kofi's catchphrase for some reason.  Fun times coming, oh boy.

Did my first (10-)roll on the WWE banner and got Cena, then Krizalid in the reroll banner. Now I have a purple border of every element.
This is getting spicier by the minute!

...but now I really want Doc Cena and these roulettes always kill me. I remember when I got the Paul summon from it straight up but thought it was just a single frag so I didn't pull him out until I wanted to get a 1/1/1 and noticed it didn't get me a bonus. lmao
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: lui on May 15, 2020, 03:42:43 AM
If you want to get Doc Cena, save up atleast 3k rubies and go for 1x or 2x soul bingos. You should be able to craft him for 200 souls from that amount, I recently did myself.




Here's' a vid from me that shows off some of his potential for Live PvP :D, these WWE characters are insanely fun
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on May 15, 2020, 04:07:35 AM
I realized there is no sale for Doc Cena tickets unlike past roulettes.  This makes it tricky if you want to farm more AS souls.  Rubies are still there to boost up the numbers yet I would rather save them for the WWE card banner.

Meme aside, Rock and Rock connection card is very good.  Anything that reduces cooldown is a plus and this one raises Att stat!

Goenitz is also recommended because of the free 3PG Card you get for him in Epic Quest and is overall a very busted unit.  So enjoy him.

(Because by the time Netmarble realizes what horror they unleashed they will revert Goenitz back to his unviable default mode mwahahaa)

They won't nerf him. He was buffed because the KR/JPN servers kept complaining he was too weak. This is a permanent change. Heck, alot of FES that came out after his buffs were a response to how powerful he was heh

Great green units are way too rare, while someone like Kyo 13 has a lot of competition (a Geese or Omega Rugal if you don't already have them is much better than Kyo). Nako and O.Leona are fine, but not that good, Alice is a joke, Goenitz still outclasses them all, O.Iori is the only serious name in that list (a lot of people love him, I don't). And the free 3PG card makes the choice much easier too.

On the reward list, tap on the ticket, then tap on the magnifying glass. If it's a list with percentages, it's random. If it's a line-up of portraits with a "collect" button, you can pick the one you want. The WWE ticket you get after 200 pulls on the WWE banner is a selector.

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.
Defensive build are OP, and he has stuff that was meta at the time (hyper armor, strong burn, seal roll and even seal skills, high def with atk boost by a percentage of def). Although these days the meta is stun, petrify, freeze and he has nothing against that.
And he has great attacks that actually hit stuff. Like how Geese XIV can tear shit up anywhere on the screen in a second.
Also he hella cool.

If you are at a certain rank, I recommend buying Ruby packages from the Challenge section and only for this section.  There are a lot more Rubies there with extra goodies including some for the Infinite Banner.  You can level up your rank faster by doing the Expert level of the Power Up Card Dungeon for the time being.

Double post because about this.....

Meme aside, Rock and Rock connection card is very good.  Anything that reduces cooldown is a plus and this one raises Att stat!
Apparently it was quietly adjusted to the point where it's now worse than Maxima/Chibi K' and Kula Cooldown reduction cards and the playerbase called out on Netmarble for it.

As a result, if you pulled this card you may be eligible to get refunded in rubies (http://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/16078).

Also due to constant issues with Championship mode, there will be a daily compensation event up till 6/9 where you gain 100 rubies and other goodies from Gold coins and Championship Coins enough to craft Eiji.

Finally, a feedback survey was posted and one of the questions asks what game or fighter you want to see be added in this game (http://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/16030).

Nameless is now added in Global along with 2 of his Battle Cards BUT he does not come with his own banner.  To get him, now you must use the unifed banner and pray to Falcoon you somehow get this guy since there is no pity system this go round.

Which is why it is heavily advised to not go for him and wait until other FES stuff get released (Adelheid, Rock XIV, Leona XII, etc) so that why you have a much better chance to get at least one of them.

Instead, spend any rubies you have on the Card Banners since the new Kaya FES set is amazing for Defense units.

Yes it is
Event Period:
Event 1) Ruby Refund Event: After 6/3 update - 6/24 8:59 pm (PDT)
Event 2) Mission Event: After 6/3 update - 7/13 8:59 pm (PDT)
Event 3) Check-In Event: 6/4 9:00 pm - 7/13 8:59 pm (PDT)
*Event Rubies can be used until maintenance on 7/22

Yep as indicated by a red watch icon.  Whenever you spend rubies, it will take the event ones first.

Also worth noting you can get False Orochi's 3PG card in Epic Quest fot Orochi so you don't have to focus too much in getting his own 5PG Card.

Since the new summoning system, I got pretty much everyone I wanted. I used a bit of the refund to get memories, but I'm waiting to see what other FES will come next. Then again I don't really need the ones in JP/KR right now, I can live a bit without Rock, Adelheid and Leona XII.
And I've already awakened (once) my Big Cheese XIV, Nameless, Orochi, Goenitz, LOZero, and OZero. I even threw a OYashiro to get through that damn tier 3 blue hell dungeon. I have memories for OShermie, ORugal, OIori, and a level 2 OZero. But man, this is such a gold sink, and the gold dungeon is so out of date with our needs.

Fucking hell, a hundred bucks for one FES memory selector, that shop is fucking crazy. That's the same price as that anniversary ticket that let you get a new FES character.
... wait, there's a 30 bucks item that gives you a FES memory selector... but it makes you wait 28 days. Wtf ?

Drewski if you can't see the gold "enter coupon" button with the other setting buttons (profile, check-in, link account, help, options...) Then I'm pretty sure it's because it's only available on Android. I've no idea how you can use them on iPhone.

Post by: Kirishima on June 05, 2020, 08:48:15 PM
Also on the shop is a $40 bundle for collabs if you want to level them up right away.  1 Purple Dimensional Ticket that as of today is only for waking WWE FES stuff namely Taker, Rock, and Cena and 3 Gold Dimensional Tickets for every other collabs.  A bit pricey and the rest of the package doesn't warrent such a price.  Don't get me started on the $100 package.  It doesn't come with 1 billion Gold, 6k rubies, and 3 battle card selectors.

The power up dungeons need a massive overhaul.  Doesn't help the item boost rate just expired before this feature came a day later.

John Cena once stopped a rolling boulder with his bare hands while his theme music suddenly played like a Dragon Install or something.  At least he has something supernatural about him, other than the ability of reforming villians into joining the Cenation.

He got curbstomped by The Fiend tho.  Fiend >>> Magaki.

so, this is my acc rn (days # is outdated, i have played since day 1, and have logged in every single day with no breaks, this screenshot was taken from a few days ago)

Every fes, except nameless, every seasonal and every collab character with their respective cards.

I have poured so much time and effort into this game and have optimized my setups like crazy. I have spent so much time grinding in PvP and grinding every event that comes up.

With the awakening update, I am ready to quit this game. The new "additions" are awful and so is the merged banner. It honestly ruins most of the game for me.

It's obvious what their objectives are:

- Make sure everyone on the same square on the board, which sounds good in concept, but is awful when you realize you're losing out on more by awakening FES units than gold or silver units.
- Give "incentive" through 3% to "motivate" gambling even harder. When you realize how much rubies you're gonna spend getting dupes that you wouldn't have spent otherwise really is a scary thought.

- Introduce more expensive packages as a temporary "fix" and use the power gap between 5-star awakenings and your characters through PvP/PvAI to twist your arms into paying. They seriously are pushing you to spend real money more than ever right now.

- Rake in profits from it then make it easier to awaken characters to "fix" the problem.






With no pity, everything is left up to RNG. I once saw someone save up since DECEMBER, never pulled or anything needlessly. Spent over 60k for a character they wanted. All 60k, went down the drain. All of it. Beforehand 27k rubes was the guarantee to get the character you want. Now, you either get alot of FES you never wanted, or spend hundreds of dollars worth of rubies to get nothing. I saw another person spend 80k and get nothing. It's honestly ridiculous how bad the RNG is considering the previous system worked just fine.

You know whats worse? Beforehand, pulling on a banner was on a "if i want to, I will" basis. every person never had to pull on a banner if they didn't want to, that's what made this game's gacha mechanics pretty good. I spent so much time making smart pulls to get virtually every character in a timely manner. I have spent so much time grinding every event and getting all the characters i use normally to level 90 with max cores.

And all of that, went to waste. Why? Because new awakening-based content makes level 90 characters look like chumps if they aren't awakened to even level 1. It's an absolute pain to get FES dupes, because you HAVE to pull on the banner now. It's a requirement if you wanna stick with your super expensive FES. It's easier to awaken gold and silver characters, which is nice! don't get me wrong!

But why would you even stick with FES characters anymore outside of the really finnicky live pvp modes? They're extremely expensive to get dupes for and Awakened teams are showing up more and more in PvAI modes. It's honestly baffling how weak they are compared to a simple level 1 awakened character. Awakened Level 5 gold characters whack the fuck out of unawakened characters. To awaken FES, i now have to use rubies i otherwise would have saved. And it's not a guarantee said rubes will get me dupes at all.





The imprint stones makes things even more whack, and they're even more powerful than even FES sets.

10 percent damage boost? 7 percent defense? What the fuck man, those are insane numbers. And they're putting them behind ridiculously harsh rng to even upgrade them unless you either grind for months or, surprise surprise, pay up.

It's calculated you will need maybe 100k to fully awaken a FES by grinding PvP modes weekly. What the fuck is that man. that's actual bullshit.

The final nail in the coffin is seeing NM still sell characters in packages over 100 dollars that are super, super powerful. Most people thought Mrs Big's pack was gonna be a one time thing and most were either okay with that or just ignored it. However, now Pretty Kim has been datamined, and surprise surprise, the way you're gonna get her is the same as Mrs. Big beforehand.. It's honestly baffling how bad this is, especially when her kit is insanely OP from what has been datamined.

I no longer have the need to keep going, or to even pull for whatever FES comes out.


All of this artificial grind gating benefits nobody in the long run. Not whales, not budget spenders, or F2P players.



Why should I? 2 years and everything we did means nothing, even with spending.  If they introduce a rainbow memory that's easily obtainable later, then what was the point in even buying the packages they provide now? To go faster when all you think you ran was just amounted to one step someone else done in a single day later?

If that happens, what point is there to just sprint forward if I'll end up getting punted back again? What's the point. In the end, it matters naught.


- Championships? I'm never going there due to how bad the balancing is now.
- Top 50 in Infinity Arena? Forget it.
- League? If I lose, I lose. I don't care.

If you're stressed about the game or even contemplating leaving, I honestly can't blame you. Most veterans in all servers right now are honestly getting annoyed with how badly NM is treating the game.

Yup, I love this game. Here's hoping Netmarble doesn't get too crazy with this game...
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.
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.

Also a brief note.  Yesterday's livestream had the producer mention K9999 and that it might be possible for Netmarble to one day include him in someway to the game. Tho, wouldn't hold my breath.

New Super Mission for a free AS Seasonal is now live along with a free SP Card on the 7th Day.  This is good if you need an Awakening for an existing Unit.

Another update is planned for later that will adjust the difficulty in the Rite of Passage mode because even top Units in Awakening will still struggle against low tier Gold nonsense and increase rewards in the Hell Dungeon.

No word yet if a new FES will arrive this week tho.

Post by: Byakko on June 16, 2020, 07:50:47 PM
and increase rewards in the Hell Dungeon.
I thought the Hell Dungeon was hard, but in a challenging way. It forces you to develop a team for each color and you can't just dump everything in one or two favorite characters, and with each tier, you get enough capsules to more or less keep up your full teams at a decent level. At most, you wait for the next day and level up one unit that's been lagging.
Except I'm on tier 11 right now, and it doesn't give me rank 1 capsules anymore, just rank 2, but I don't have anyone at rank 2 awakening yet (I do have a few characters at lv9 so I'm almost there), so it'll only become slower and slower for me to level up a unit that's lagging until everyone is awakened at rank 2.

Also the annoying part of all of that is that maintaining 3 units per color is the absolute limit of what you can do with what you get. You want to awaken a brand new unit and boost them up to your top level ? Put your progression on pause for a few days to pile up capsules, and don't complete your current tier so you don't have to level up someone else to keep up. I've been holding off on awakening units like Genjuro or Haohmaru because of that, as I need to make sure my current red and purple teams can keep up.

Rite of passage is shit though. "searching for opponents of your level" *gives you a full team of lv11 enemies when your best is lv9 and everyone else is 8 or 7* right. I assume it just looks at what tier you're at in Hell dungeon. And as usual the amount of coin you get is so low you have to wait a whole month to finally get some imprint stones.

Nope it didn't.  The Imprint Stone bundle is a 50/50 between getting a Plus or a dud, and even then you get a 20% of getting the stone you want for your Unit and don't get me started on the letter farming now that they have taken away letter bundles.  Hammers for leveling them up are a long grind if you haven't been keeping up tho I am hoping the update improves the chances of getting them.

You are better off paying $8 of getting a Plus stone, hammers to maximum its level, and Gold for said maximizing and that's only for one unit, ugh.

But hey 700 rubies weekly via daily missions is nice I guess.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on June 16, 2020, 10:36:08 PM
In all honesty, this is not nearly as bad as Marvel Future Fight, Netmarble's golden standard for greed and complete lack of content. MFF has added literally nothing to do since Galactus giant boss (the epic quests are nothing but text and resource spending) and keeps coming up with new ways to make you waste resources and new OP characters that have zero point outside of an awful PvP. They literally plan the new characters based on who's going to need the most resources at the point you have the least of them.

In KoFAS, between the Epic Quest and the Hell dungeon, there's a real sense of progression and things to actually do every day - Epic Quest is over and done once you've got all the main rewards, but it still takes a long time. Except now you get a new reason to play them again if you want to awaken the AS characters (but that, once again, takes weeks and weeks just to build up one character). The new awakening system requires you to keep rolling over and over at random without aiming for a specific character anymore, just take multiple copies of everything you can get, but at the same time they're also giving out a lot more rubies. We'll see how that goes in a couple months, if everyone just becomes bone dry of rubies, but so far it's still way better than MFF.
On the long run, if you can't get multiple copies of specific characters, you should still get copies of other characters, and a few FES as well, if you use the pick-up selection for characters and cards. So the last piece of that puzzle is having a way to level up the characters you do get, because it would suck to get stuck at an awakening threshold on your strongest character without getting a new copy of him to awaken, while being unable to significantly level up the characters that you do get new copies of. Ideally you should still be able to re-run previous tiers of the dungeon with lower leveled awakened units that you want to bring up to speed. It should be a reason to finally build those Takumas and Andys and Kyos and get them stronger than your best FES !

(I haven't touched the imprint stones yet because with how rare the stones and the hammers are, it's completely irrelevant to me right now, we'll see how that goes in a couple months too)

New datamine shows a new render for Mai from KOFXIII, defiantly a future FES along with new portraits for her SP cards including a new 3PG for her.  No word on the release date or any of the missing FES stuff.

Also, lately the new update has made things convenient for stocking up Exp Capsules for Awakening and the Rite of Passage uses little to no FES units in the early stages with a huge increase in Coins to finally get Golden Hammers.

edit - there's more mistranslation like Mature XII's bakkurasshu, so I'll just chalk it up to the price of trying to catch up to the JP/KR versions by cramming all those characters at once. I just hope they'll go over these and fix it later.

Apparently Soul Quest is now giving 8 souls per run at expert difficulty ?? That'll finally speed things up a bit if it takes 2 weeks instead of a damn month to max up a character (before awakening)

You will need a couple of Units with cost under or equal to 45.  My pick would be Envy Mary to make use of her exclusive 6* cards, Christmas Choi for Bleed, Greed Rugal if you got his 3PG SP card from Epic Quest, or Heidern '98.  If you were lucky to snag Mai's 6* Cards, power up Mai '94 but don't feed capsules.

I would also suggest Wonderland Athena and Haohmaru but only if you have his 3PG Card.

Mai '94 and Mai '96 don't need it.  Was able to beat False Saisyu with 45 cost and less with Mai '96 on my team with only cores unlocked and no capsules.  Awakening makes them better.

Greed Rugal and Christmas Choi and Envy Marie could use those capsules instead.

Post by: Byakko on July 22, 2020, 06:48:12 PM
Good blue characters are still very rare, and that includes a collab character (Jin) and an AS character (Wonderland Yuri), so Rock is pretty valuable just by being there and having decent skills.
Good red characters ? Kick a tree and five of them fall off. Pretty Clone Zero is very good and worth the investment, but if you have others like Geese, Omega Rugal, Haohmaru or Clone Zero (who is free and easy to get memories for every week), then you don't need to worry about her.
Vanessa is only worth it in PvP, and she's not that good. There's a couple really good purple characters, and a whole bunch of decent ones. You only have to care about her if you can't get someone like Nameless, Igniz, Genjuro, or Idol Kula.

So, Rock for rarity, and Pretty Clone Zero if you don't already have a few of the many good reds.

I mean, I welcome any form of Kyo Kusanagi, cause he's my main in the series, but Kyo-1 and Kyo-2 are just Kyo '94/'95 - Kyo '96/'97, respectively. The only way I see them making it into All-Star is if they get their DM and MAX2DM/HSDM from KOF2002UM.

She's also in the gacha, just like Big Lady. You can put her in your pickup selection.
The paid option is for those who don't want to sink thousands of rubies in the gacha for nothing, since the gacha is garbage and the pickup is a lie. Especially for cards.

Post by: Kirishima on August 27, 2020, 05:10:47 PM
Massive update has been pushed and lot to unpack.

~New Super Mission rewards you a free 5* Seth with his card coming the following day.  The next Super Mission after that is Alice who at one point required a payment of $50 to get.

~New FES Set cards with new sets for Shermie and Chris.

~Can finally use skip tickets in the element dungeons except the ones with Shin bosses.

~Watermelon rush that rewards you items.

~New fighters pass that has an optional payment of $10 to benefit the full pack.  The points are gained from Daily Missions that reward more than just 100 rubies and can all be done in 40 days.  There was a recent issue involving the amount of missions to get the points and it has now been patched

~New Element Dungeon with a tier ladder that gets difficult with every completion.  For this mission it's recommended to have a high leveled Purple unit.  It also drops token to exchange memories monthly.

~New Team Relay Challenge with a set goal to get the highest damage possible to gain items and loads of rubies.  Beating the boss isn't recommended.

~Soul Quest gains are now back to how they were before.  No more mass farming.

~Other than XIII Iori and K', another FES Unit is coming who is yet another genderswap.  This time it's Fem-Maxima because why not.

Finally login now to get a huge wad of rubies as compensation for the delay in Championship rewards.

Unless I missed something, it seems I still can't complete 12 missions because there are only 11, so I can't get the last 300 pass EXP to complete the first day of the pass. Since it looks like I'll need and get exactly 1000 EXP per day until the 40th day (assuming the 12th mission is fixed by tomorrow), I'll be short 300 EXP every day and I won't get the 40th reward. I checked the forum and it explicitly says it won't give out the 300 EXP of the first day, so I'm SOL until they somehow fix the mission within the next 2 hours (because I need to sleep).

Lady Maxima looks just as hilariously corny as Lady BRAIN. They're clearly riffing on the loli fatigue. Honestly I rather get dumb bikini warriors than awful lolis.

~New FES Set cards with new sets for Shermie and Chris.
Oh shit, I didn't notice they got their 3PG special card. It's cool but the characters are worthless (well, I guess it's good for the Infinite battle that takes non FES characters, but even then they're not the best choices to awaken). I'm waiting for Mature's 3PG since she got a good FES version.

Recent datamine shows Omega Rugal 95 finally basically complete, probably a FES. Kaiser Wave and Rugal Execution as specials, and still the same terrible Omega Execution as his only card. Now hurry up and release that 95 Rugal with his Kaiser Wave 3PG card...

Yea I dunno why Netmarble refuses to keep things in order and have JPN be ahead than the rest.  Mature and Vice also have their new sets released there.

There's also another unreleased-in-Global FES set cards that gives you Fem-Brian's damage immunity after reaching 1% for a 2 seconds (yea Zeroko also does this but that's only on the first hit at full health)

This is all for the top ranks in pvp so who cares, you don't need to keep climbing in Hell dungeon and the new elemental boss still gives enough memories at the moment (I mean, it would make a difference if higher level boxes from that mode gave better odds of getting a FES memory, but everyone knows that's not happening)

Apparently the codes were only available for one day. That's fucking terrible.

Looks like Iori XIII is finally coming in 3 days. The green memory boxes from the new green element have his memory - but only at lv4 (on tier 14). Because of course lv1 boxes only have memories for 3 bad FES and Goenitz only appears in lv5 boxes (and Iori appears in lv4 boxes).
Good thing I have a 38k CP Geese.

Next gold border unit coming is True Rugal '94.  Tho his class is listed as an AS unit instead of '94.  What this means is that he will likely not be used in PvP modes that restricts to just KoF originals where as regular Rugal '94 is allowed.  True Rugal can even use the default SP card and Greed Rugal's 3PG cards.  Additionally, he will not get the buffs in Lunatic Mode '94 chapter unlike regular Rugal '94.

Gonna assume the class is a placeholder as in that the time that vid was made it had a ruby refund event ongoing despite no plans for that in the near future.  Else it's gonna be like False Orochi.

It might just be using Greed Rugal's data as a base, judging by the icons.

http://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/54/30032

Upcoming update this week.

Battle Card upgrades will go through some changes in how you level them up.  Now EXP and Skill level will be split and you will now have to use different class of cards to level them up individually.  The big change is that you will no longer have to rely on chance for a Skill level increase and can gain them up to its maximum level the same way on how you use EXP cards to get to Lv.25/30.

A new Battle Card combining system will be added soon.  If you have cards of a certain rank regardless of what it is, you can merge them both to get newer ones.  Unfortunately, this isn't possible with 6* Cards but it can be useful to get the seasonal Option cards this way.  Also, Awakening mode now unlocks additional slots for you to add more cards to your unit because this function isn't busted enough already.

New mode called "Dungeon of Trials" will also be added.  5 fighters alongside their strikers are allowed.  Can get high level Imprint Stones this way along with more goodies like Awakened EXP and Golden Hammers.

Finally, new Imprint Stones and Guild missions are in the works.

No word yet on any new units or cards this week.

Oh sweet. Battle card management is really annoying, not enough inventory space, 400 cards sitting in my mail box and letting anything below 5* run out, the impossibility to sort the mail box to easily find the cards you care about, both of these problems leading to me mostly not bothering to upgrade shit.
They say the new slot is for special battle cards (but you can't use their skill) ? Why even. Just for the stats ? Because special battle card really don't do shit and there's really no point keeping multiple copies of the same battle card - or even to want to put someone else's special card in your slot.

If anything it's probably due to the Combat Power requirements in modes like the Elemental Dungeon where if your level isn't met, you'll get a damage reduction penalty regardless of what Attack stats you have. 

I saw a screenshot of someone's Zeroko having maxed out stats of over 70k CP at Awakened Lv.50 with Capsules and cards and even that isn't enough to get past the final part of the Element Dungeon.  This update will patch that to get past the penalty.

The downside is that I spent dupes to level up cards mostly from collabs and welp.

Oh wow, great fucking job. I mean, I understand that they actually planned to give themselves some room for further evolution mechanics, that's fine and smart (see all the other modes that are stuck with lv90 challenge), but to do that and then just slap an extra card that does absolutely fuckall beside numbers, to overcome a totally arbitrary problem of numbers that they themselves created on purpose ? Thumbs up, guys, what a waste of development time. This is just to force you to push your inventory space to 500 slots or something (that's 7 cards per usable character, how many is that ?).

I stopped paying the game more than a week ago. With the shitty awakening system, all these endless seasonal alt units made for the exact same female characters over and over again, and the r63 characters seemingly getting added every other week whose designs just get worse and worse with Lady Maxima being the worst yet (you just don't do my husbando dirty like that you fucks) that I just can't stand all of it anymore.

I actually liked some of these r63 characters like Lady Big and Lady Billy but the loli Zeros and Lady Maxima can go die in a fire. Also Lady Brian is literally just a blonde girl in a bikini and shoulder pads. How absolutely creative.

All that and everything else I hated with NetMarble's other game Marvel Future Fight. Call me when they announce KOFXV.

Lady Brian is literally just a blonde girl in a bikini and shoulder pads. How absolutely creative.
Brian himself isn't that much better.  He is a just a dude in football gear who jobbed out to The Undertaker.  What I'm saying is he will forever be remember for having long blonde hair that fans will ransack the polls demanding her to be added in a future game.

Call me when they announce KOFXV.
Plot twist: The reason there was no KOFXV reveal in these last couple of months was that the term "KOFXV" is in fact a codename for a massive update for All Stars coming next year to celebrate their anniversary.

And Duck King still won't be invited.

Oh wow, Jenet is here too (but with the dumb show super and not the torpedo kicks).
And still no Omega Rugal 95.
Ugh, where are the event missions to get extra roulette tickets ? Edit - the official forum is going crazy about bugs everywhere.

edit again
Apparently the next leak is there with Lady Geese and finally Rashoumon for her special card.
And most surprisingly
She's wearing actual clothes.

Post by: Kirishima on September 24, 2020, 08:29:55 PM
Yea really REALLY big dud of an update.

-Skill XP is split and can only be leveled up with Skill XP Cards which are really hard to farm unless you have plenty of AP potions and even that isn't enough to get to full level.  Even 5* Skill XP cards need about 5 to fully complete at lv.9 to lv.10 and lower level card's gain rates are bad.  The accumulation is nice but doesn't change the fact the new system is a bigger grind than before and greatly encourages you to buy their XP level packs.

-3* and 4* cards are now useless.  Yes there's the combine feature to get a better 5* card but it's at 15% and you have no control over what you want it to be.  Afterwards you are stuck with a pointless 5* card that can't be used to enhance anything other than selling it for a pitiful 2k gold.  I really want to use them to level up my new 6* Akane cards and now I can't.

-New SP slots after Awakened stats has greatly crippled Collabs unless you were one of the 10 that decided to keep 2 of each SP for collective purposes during the collab time.  Awful.

-No point in playing Rite of Dungeon since the newer dungeons grant you better Imprint Stones and Hammers.  This can be fixed just by adding better rewards in their shops.

-Mass amounts of bugs and delays.  Earlier Omega Rugal 98's God Press was bugged and has since been hotfixed.

Also, World Drop Event is back allowing you to farm rubies or tickets for B.Jenet.


I rather take the old system than whatever this is for leveling up cards.  Good for Netmarble to keep reminding us how grimey they can be at times.

Apparently the next leak is there with Lady Geese and finally Rashoumon for her special card.

Until she starts removing her gi during the Rashoumon super because they can't help themselves.

Lady Geese, but lv1 so no third skill / super / ultimate. Raigou Reppuuken as a special. I just hope Rashoumon's launcher is a hit and not a grab like Omega Rugal who CANNOT HIT GIANT BOSSES and is therefore a waste of space. Seriously, even his super is useless.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on September 26, 2020, 01:29:25 AM
Another datamine occured revealing FES Ryo XIV along with his new 5PG Card.  He already has his 3PG SP Card and his unqiue Option Card that gives him the ability to disable emergency rolls.  Also added is Benimaru 01/02 (unsure) and Andy '02 with K' and Kula getting new 3PG Cards that can also be used in their FES class.

Recently Netmarble has further acknowledged their recent hiccup so they have added more card gains in their weekly dungeon, yet it barely solves anything.  They also sent 20x 5* Skill XP of each type but it's strongly recommended not to spend them just yet until they resolve this issue.  It's a really big mess atm.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on September 26, 2020, 02:04:51 AM
That leaker's facebook also shows Lady Geese's other skills as the grab > slam down > thunder, and Thunder Break for a super.
I was hoping the FES Ryo would be Mr Karate 2 from NGBC or MIRA. His skills better have actual usable effects.

The most annoying thing with the new card system I find is that duplicates are now completely useless, you can't use them to level up the skill. So leveling up skills just became that much harder, annoying, and longer, especially for ultimates (which I didn't think possible given how bad it was before). And just dump all the 3 and 4* into that useless merging system, which is equal to dumping them in the trash can. Also, fuck collab characters for the extra special battle card.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on September 26, 2020, 04:37:09 PM
So apparently as if this update can't get any worse, now in regards to Skill XP cards, they are restricted into their own class for XP gain.  Before, you could dump any card to one you want to level up.  Now, say you have 40 4* Option Skill XP.  As of this update, you can only use them for Option Cards and NOTHING else.  And visa versa for Set and Special.

The irony of all this is that the moderator of the KOFAS forums had said that this update was to make it more simpler for newcomers looking to pick up this game.  If anything, it became more complicated tenfold than before.  I feel bad for said moderator as they are being fed these lines without learning of the actual content itself.

lol Andy 01 was leaked some more, he's gold purple defense and he doesn't even deal bleed (even though his unique option card is bleed based). First two skills are, guess what, Hishouken and Kuuhadan.
Instant dump, I'm keeping my "rusty nail" 98 Andy. Why do they even bother making the exact same character yet again.

Sharon Stone Larxene Lady Geese is out and ridiculously strong because why not.  I find it funny that the whole package system got reduced from 6 to 4 because no one is sane enough to nab them all.  Likewise, it's optional to buy the package if you are desperate enough for this unit since she is in the normal pool along with her SP Card.

Not true you can sell those for a peasly coin gain the size of an ant and aaaaaahhhh

There's also the daily bundle that grants you over 1.5 mil Gold and if you are lucky 3mil or 4mil.  Yea it's random but enough to level up cores and awakening for one unit.  Keyword being one.

What I'm trying to say is the next event cannot arrive soon.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on October 12, 2020, 05:48:44 AM
Ryo XIV will be the next FES Unit to be added in the pool come 10/15.

Also, there is currently a Gold/Core fest that greatly enhances item rate and will last up to 10/22.  Usually a major event will arrive after the item boost ends.  It's worth noting that next week will mark 1 year when KOFAS launched in Global so it is currently unsure if an anniversary or a collab event will happen next week.  Could be both too.

Gut feeling is that for the anniversary we will only get the 1st Anni. Card with few events here and there akin to World Drop.  I fully expect collab news to arrive soon.  Reason is that last week there was a scheduled stream that was supposed to be live but it got pushed to this week instead, yet there has been no announcement made in any other platform.  This week makes sense to build up event news for the following week and explains the sudden item rate (and now Soul Rate is back to 8 souls) happened.

I saw on the forum that there was no announcement likely because it wasn't actually planned, someone probably just messed up an automated schedule. There still haven't been any announcement for this week either, right ? I'm not expecting anything until they actually say "we're doing something".

Money.

Best Lady types are Ms. Big who fits in a Plethora of teams Offense and Defense, Pretty Zero who is undeniably Top 5 best Unit and is an absolutely must, Lady Brian is a recent add on and hits massively hard with a passive that lets her survive for 10 seconds with 1 HP, Lady Maxima is another recent add on that has incredible blast range with status infliction, and finally Lady Yashiro despite not being a FES Unit is the best budget Lady mainly for having a niche in Shock damage and easy to gain memories from the exchange shop and the AS Super mIssions.

Now they just need to fix the Battle Card system.

The next event is revealed to be a repeat of Athena in Wonderland coming alongside the release of Ryo XIV with Andy '01 and Benimaru.  This event will last until 10/28.

Event will contain a roulette that allows you to craft Wonderland Athena souls to get her Unit or her Memory, a repeat of the score event route, and Daily login bonuses containing Summon Tickets every 5th day.  Don't expect any additional Wonderland units outside of Iori and Yuri.

Also, if you haven't done so, it's strongly recommended to do the Vanessa Super Mission to get her added in your roster for free.  Other than being one of the best KOF-original units for League, she also gives item boost rates in Epic Quest.

The long awaited major update is around the corner and it has been announced that the following will be cut entirely.

- Welcome Super Mission
- Element Festival
- Returning Player Super Mission

In the early days in Global, there were free characters given from Super Missions much how like how we are getting some now except those characters are now outdated in the current meta.  For those starting the game will get these missions but prior to the October update, it is no longer possible.

The Returning Player missions are for those that were inactive for a certain period of time and it allows them to get a plethora of goodies.  Shame it got cut as you could even get GOENITZ for free.

10/27 will have an anniversary event for Global.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on October 24, 2020, 03:26:03 PM
English live stream coming in 10/27 4PM PDT.  Reminder that these streams give out codes that last for only a day.  The topics only include new bosses and Global Anniversary.

Also a South Korean livestream on 10/26 (https://twitter.com/yaker5710/status/1319536376069509121)

Korean forum had a developer's note listed. (https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/19/33263) The key things from this are these:

~The devs "apologized" for the chaos their battle card update caused yet have no plans on reverting back to their previous system.  Instead, the Card Dungeons will greatly be adjusted to focus more on Skill XP than before.

~One part of the problem with the new update was the lack of a second SP card for collabs needed to boost CP.  To patch this, a universal SP card made for every unit will be added which only provides CP boost and nothing more.

~Guild Raids are coming involving one original boss and Omega Rugal.  There is a rumor that it might be live co-op and given how much lag there is involving Championship, I don't have a good feeling about this moreso on even communicating with foreign players.

~More bosses coming for Relay Dungeons.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on October 24, 2020, 07:14:48 PM
Hmm.

I'm pretty sure I remember the universal card was already mentioned in the rumors just before the new system came out. So they didn't actually make any change, they only finished what they'd already planned before. Eh, anyway it's still a way to force us to expand our inventory size.

I don't want them to revert to the previous card system, fuck RNG. I just want regular cards to be worth something again. If I roll a 6* card, but I already have 3 complete sets of it, it still has absolutely zero value to me, and I just leave it in my inbox until it disappears a month later. It only makes it frustrating to roll a 6* that you don't want and not the one you need.
All they have to do is allow us again to use cards for both EXP and skill up. Just with a fixed amount of EXP, no RNG - and still make the skill EXP a lot bigger if you feed it to an identical card, make it worth my time to roll multiple copies of a rare card.
It's not that fucking hard. How do you even get the idea to REMOVE something like that from the previous system. Why do these people still have a job when they think this dumb shit is a good idea.

On the guild raid... Well, if it makes guilds any useful, why not. Just no live co-op of course, simply throw us a mission and you can participate and help reduce the boss HP when you want or can, and at the end of the raid, if enough people participated, your guild gets nice rewards. Right now, guilds and friends are completely pointless.

And why do they not want to add a sorting system to the inbox, I'll never figure that out.

With the anniversary arriving soon, new units have been announced.  Next seasonal FES revealed to be Halloween Alice.

The other FES revealed next is Chris who will finally don a Halloween attire to go along with the rest of New Face team and is a Purple Unit.  It's worth pointing out that Chris has his own 6* SP and Option cards, yet it's unsure if Halloween Chris counts as regular or Orochi form.

Alice

Uh, when they're rolling at the end of the stream, they notice that Halloween Chris is not in the pickup selection, looks like he can't be rolled.

New update is out and it gives you a special card for Gold gain!

First impressions involving the improved combine card feature.  It has a lot more use now that it always churns out a 5* skill XP card.  However, 5* dupe cards STILL have no purpose outside of coin filler.  I am certain at some point there will likely be a 5* combine feature that will give you 6* stuff.

The new card dungeons now give XP and Skill XP cards per round with slughtly more at higher levels.  That's nice.

Core memories at the exchange shop got shifted to those that are polular meta.  Goenitz, Nameless, Ms. Big.  AS units now reduced to 2 as well as costs 1000 coins.

Guild shops got heavily adjusted so now awakened XP capsules are sold including Plus Capsules.

The hall of memories shop from the elemental boss you mean ? Seems like it's random for everyone. I have Igniz, Kyo 13, O Zero, Iori 13 and I forget who else.
Mr Karate didn't come out but his skill icons were datamined, so probably next week with Chris.

Halloween Chris is now live and for 2 weeks you can nab his souls via Roulette and craft him for free.  This guy is worth getting for his leader skill that benefits Purple class by increasing attack and power charge rate.  He's useful for Nameless and Orochi as well as collabs like Genjuro, Heihachi, and John Cena.

Additionally new set cards got released.

•Kula's exclusive 6* Cards that can also work with Idol Kula, the best Kula out of the rest.
•New Halloween set cards that greatly increases Gold gain for farming.
•A new Chibi Orochi card that increases Burn and Darkness damage.  This is handy for Omega Rugal guild raids that are going on now.

No Mr. Karate for the time being.  Maybe in a week or two.

The official forum put up a survey asking us which FES character needs a rework.
Quote
'97 Orochi Leona
'97 Orochi Yashiro
'97 Orochi Chris
'97 Orochi
2000 Zero (Clone)
2001 Zero (Original)
2001 Igniz
2003 Ash
2003 Mukai
2003 Terry Bogard
XIII NESTS Style Kyo
Also asking who we want to see as FES.
I see Orochi Shermie is the only Orochi they think is okay. Sure she can stunlock for ever, but she still takes forever to do any damage. Why don't you make OShermie a balance (but keep the same damage) and OChris an attack, that'll be a start.
NESTS Kyo doesn't need anything if we get a 03/XI black jacket FES Kyo (and I hope Mr Karate will be a great red to rival Geese, no need to make Kyo XIII a strong red), Ash and Terry are fine, just boring, Igniz doesn't need anything. The Orochis need another overhaul (especially Orochi since we won't get another version of him), and I'd say OZero needs some major fixes (he's slow, he just won't turn around when you try to chain multiple skills, summon Krizalid too close to a wall and it'll completely whiff...)
I just want a FES Mature XIII that's a clone of the XII (design and skills) but with Sacrilege instead of the grab, and good cores. Also someone like a good King with Silent Flash or Robert with Hien Senpuu Juudan Kyaku.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on November 10, 2020, 01:53:05 PM
OROCHI YASHIRO

Good god, this guy is the epitome of outdated.  His whole gimmick is having no gimmicks that trigger enemy cores in PvP but as a drawback he dies to everything because he lacks everything.  I'll be amazed on what they can do to get him into today's meta because he desperately needs it.

Orochi Leona as well.  She has some cool stuff like being one of the few units with very low cooldowns on her skills but is underwelheming in general and outclassed by much better Blue units including Leona XII.  Both O.Yashiro and O.Leona need serious improvements to get better Blue choices.

Original Zero also would be my choice to get a rework no thanks to Zeroko being a much better option.  Yea this is why Blue units are rated the lowest class from the anniversary stream survey.

As of this time, Orochi seems to be leading the polls by an overwhelming lead and why do I feel it has something to do with him being a freebie at one point.

Pretty sure King or Mai will be winning but I would love to see Andy Bogard, Kasumi, or Shingo to make use of their exclusive Option and SP Cards.

Post by: Byakko on November 10, 2020, 02:05:15 PM
I lost hope for Andy when they made the ninja outfit gold with no bleed. FES Andy should just be 98 Andy but FES. Maybe reorganize his specials (ditch the Kuuhadan, put an EX Zan'eiken followed by the flip kick... Who the fuck needs anti-air moves in a game where you can't jump)
Kasumi 99 has been part of those datamined stuff for ever, you know she'll be gold with the same 3 shit moves. They have good moves for her, they created a nice one for her Christmas version, but you know they'll never use it again...

Yeah, I forgot about Mai. I'll assume O Yashiro and Mai win those polls (Orochi deserves to win but Yashiro has been a meme for too long). ... actually I don't even know what they could do with Yashiro, his problems is that he has nothing but grabs, that's exclusively good for PvP and nothing else. What would they even fix ?

Oh shit, the official Facebook page (https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1640399142788186&substory_index=0&id=1022323447929095&__tn__=%2As%2As-R) is teasing Mr. Karate, finally. I was already expecting to wait yet another week.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on November 12, 2020, 03:10:03 PM


Mr. Karate is out now along with his 3PG and 5PG SP Cards!  What's interesting this time is now there is a $99 package that not only grants you him but various Souls, Memories, and Plus Capsules to level him up to Awakening Lv. 30+.  Not recommended unless you don't have any good red units, in dire need of a decent unit for Arena and League, or want something for Dungeons.

Along with this update, World Drop has returned as well as a Bingo Card that rewards Unpair Imprint Stones that are hard to find in the base game and a Dice Event.

What would they even fix ?
For PVP, the issue is that he is too vanilla.  While he has Def -> Att conversion on one of his skills, Armor on Guard, and Regen HP on hit, he lacks most meta stuff to keep up against everyone else like DoT, damage immunity, status immunity, status inflection, etc.  He doesn't hit hard, he needs to get hit to function well, he's lost in the shuffle.  He needs a core overhaul to be better if anything.  If he had something like grabs that bypass Hyper Armor like WWE units, maybe he'll be worth something because at the moment the only thing he's worth are his memories used to craft purple dimension tickets to level up FES collabs.

Seems it's been inadvertently leaked by the Japanese AllStar Twitter account before they put up the teaser image to cover it up.

It's a Netmarble collab from Seven Knights. Seems the mobile game is a gatcha nightmare, but there was an RPG on the Switch?  Might just be me, but I would have liked more characters from the SNK universe, but hey...

At first I wondered how that is gonna work but then I realized not too long ago we had Dwayne Johnson offering a divine entity a role in his upcoming action flick after somehow besting him in a fight.

The Switch edition is also made by Netmarble so I can see the collab progress being made easy to get around.  Still would rather have something like Blazblue as that has had interactions with KoF characters in past crossover games.

I just realized we are gonna wait even longer for Omega Rugal '95 ugh.

FES Hotaru (purple defense) has been datamined on the usual gigaproto channel. Nice, it'll give me something to spend my rubies on whenever she comes out (after the collab I assume). It's just a shame that Jenet wasn't a FES, she's super good and she only lacks the top of the FES brokenness (and a 3PG card torpedo kicks).
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on December 01, 2020, 09:46:00 PM
So a few stuff snatched on my end.

Spoiler: Battle Card Dungeon has a chance of dropping Collab cards.  Old info, but it really surprised me (click to see content)

Spoiler: The new Combine feature also drops 5* Universal SP cards.  Chance rate must be very low too but it's possible. (click to see content)

And now some news.

(https://hedwig-cf.netmarble.com/forum-common/kofg/kofg_en/thumbnail/9e4d32fb743843e7af8723cf23f32dfe_1606798802440_d.jpg)
So the recent polls have ended and to no one's surprise, Mai is getting her FES version, even tho she should have gotten one by now.  What's really surprising is despite the high demand for a FES King, she did not get that much support compared to Athena who got more than twice the amount, oof.

Regardless, it's safe to assume all three will get their FES class with Mai arriving first.

(https://hedwig-cf.netmarble.com/forum-common/kofg/kofg_en/thumbnail/493eddf6df934e9197534ef31675d074_1606798289532_d.jpg)

The other poll on who needs to get the Goenitz treatment has concluded with Orochi and NESTS-style Kyo leading the ranks with Original Zero being next.  Worth pointing out Orochi has a 3PG SP Card so expect fun times.  Orochi Yashiro will probably get his buffs by the time KOFXVI arrives.



There is also the launch of a "Carnival" rally which gives you various rewards based on Battle Cards acquired.  For this event, the amount of AP is reduced in the Battle Card Dungeon.  The last reward is a Imprint Stone Mystery Box, but it's not worth burning AP and rubies for IMO.

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on December 01, 2020, 10:48:26 PM
but it's not worth burning AP and rubies for IMO.
I had like a dozen 6* cards sitting in my inbox waiting to expire because I already have like 2 copies of each option card and 3 full sets of each of the sets. Gives me something to use them fo-aaaaand I completed the carnival.

Kyo got second place ? What do people even want to give him ? Like, just make him as broken as other OP units, or does he have actual issues ?
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on December 03, 2020, 10:46:45 AM
They brought back the pass for a 7K pass. The 50+ bucks is trash. It has a random 7K character memory and a selector for a blank FES memory, a selector for one gold imprint stone for bleed or poison, then hammers, capsules and awakening exp. It's specific for people who spend a bunch of money for high end specific stuff, and is already paying for 7K characters.
The 5 bucks pass is just a few summon tokens.

Post by: Kirishima on December 04, 2020, 03:24:30 PM
It has been confirmed that we will FINALLY be able to combine 5* Cards for a chance to gain 6* Cards.  Slim chance as always but anything to get rid of dupes.

Kyo got second place ? What do people even want to give him ? Like, just make him as broken as other OP units, or does he have actual issues ?
Fun fact.  The JPN side voted NESTS Kyo as a priority over Orochi and even more surprising is that despite NESTS Kyo, KOR/JPN community want a new FES Kyo was voted in 3rd place over King.

It's more like he is outdated in terms of versatility over a plethora of better options and now freebie Rachel is a thing.  He just needs better burn multipliers, reworked cores to help him stand out and his own 6* Cards as he can't even use regular Kyo's.

Speaking of Kyo, was able to somehow pull a few 6* cards and more by exploiting the Exchange Set Cards menu and the random imprint stone I gained only functions for Kyo '95 as he is a blue unit, Attack class, and focuses on Burn damage.  Well, at least he has 6* Cards, I guess.

Post by: Xhominid on December 05, 2020, 06:19:08 PM
I know people may have already mentioned it before... but holy crap are these Collab units ridiculous, even Rachel herself is freaking absurd due to having an easy access infinite for PvE and PvAI and that's not accounting for the rest of her skills.

The Collab 7Knights Imprint Stones are just as bad too since they further enable them to be pretty absurd in their own right. I wouldn't be surprised if they did all of this not really to make them super broken... but more easy access for newbies for the later difficulty spikes of the more recent dungeons.

And even then it's still not enough to dethrone Goenitz, Saiki, Mr. Karate, and the rest of the meta standard units, but they are up there.

I feel like the 7K Imprint Stones are just them testing the waters for more character/series specific stones later down the line and making others pay up for Imprint Unpairing kits to pass already leveled up Stones to other units.

Yeah it only shows just how absurd the meta characters are when even the Collab Units don't feel like they are going to be really any danger to them at all.

And yeah, character specific stones may be the precedent here and as long as they don't make them BS hard to get, I'll be fine with them.

UI is completely revamped, everything moved. Good luck finding your shit for the next couple of days :P
Holy shit, FES Daimon creates a snowman for his ultra. That means he doesn't actually need to grab the target, he grabs the snowman. That means his grab ultra works on giant bosses because he still wrecks the screen. Wow. Also he's blue defense, maybe he'll be a good blue while we wait for OZero's rework.
I'm getting that FES Jenet. Both chill and shock, because why not. Still no 3PG for her though. Green color is overcrowded in great units too.
Limit removed for the power up dungeons, we're never running out of gold and cores and EXP again !
Craftable awakened EXP lv 2 and 3 by eating 10 of the previous level, why not.

FES Athena XIII was datamined as yellow balance and she has a far better basic chain now, but she looks like one of those fucking creepy old style kigurumi doll-like mask things.
... I just wish AS False Saisyu was a FES with a much better basic chain, he deserved it.

The codex has card sets based on the Orochi NFT that are not bad, but they're not summonable in the gacha... Is it a possible reward only in specific modes ?

My guess is that the rest of the new 6* cards are available through the new combine feature.

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/38421

Next few days will give out free rewards including a ticket to redeem a Lady Fighter and it is selectable.

Omega Rugal '95 and Orochi '98 are gonna be classified as Boss Syndrome class instead of the KOF year.  Boss Orochi is a Green Balance and Boss Rugal is a Blue Attack.

https://youtu.be/99eQCPBr0nk
Lightning special is multi-hit, teleport-mirror also multi hit and followed by the genocide kick, the kick-mirror super is also multi hit on the mirror.
https://youtu.be/upaLU4PDJS4
Rugal is basically unchanged for the specials (beside having the Kaiser Wave) but his super seems to have a slightly different animation. Still a grab.
They both have the allstar logo and not a numbered KoF for some reason ? Will they put all the future bosses in this codex section instead of the numbered section ? .... They're gonna re-release an upgraded version of all the bosses in that codex section to avoid duplicates in the numbered sections, aren't they. Everyone find the nuclear shelter when they get to Boss Syndrome Goenitz then... (and throw in a Boss Syndrome False Saisyu while you're at it)

Apparently dataminers are saying that their animations are significantly faster than the original, too, in the startup and recovery parts. You can see it with Orochi, but Rugal's cutter is also greatly improved. Orochi's basic chain was also slashed down to just his 3 heavy hits it seems, ditching the double poke at the start ? Not sure why. As long as Omega Rugal's basics aren't as awkward as the current version...
I'm really looking forward to Clone Zero and Original Zero also getting that treatment. Clone is cool but is plagued by his dreadful sluggishness, he deserves that rework (though the loli version did him some justice).

Co-op as well as doing Guild improvements.
No thanks on co-op stuff, and Guild improvements will probably be connected to the co-op stuff but I hope it involves more raid bosses and different type of imprint stones. I can get the maximum reward and my guild can kill expert mode so getting two boxes type VII per day has been fairly generous, but that only gives me a lot of burn imprint stones when there aren't that many burn units. I've been giving them to units that don't use burn but could use the 22% ATK boost. And I'm barely halfway on the reward ladder for most of the other stuff that gives boxes (the spider and I forgot what else), but the most stones I get are for darkness element and there's only 2 units with that in the entire game.

rofl Orochi's new basic chain actually starts with the 1-hit lightning then teleport, and THEN he does the last 3 heavy hits of his original chain. The first two hits of his BASIC CHAIN can hit anywhere on screen and then teleport to the target.
Dumped all my 5-digit rubies plus some tokens and got both bosses, some memories for them, as well as their cards (I was surprised that Kaiser Phoenix is 3PG) and the Rugal option card. Will they end up in the regular summon pool ? With a lower rate probably ? Good fucking luck ever getting their special card if you don't get them now.
Beside the dozen bosses, I'm hoping that someday we'll see boss versions of the Orochi gang (all 5) and maybe Geese / Nightmare Geese ?

Not a sea of classic characters who whiff every combo with their specials (with cooldown) and can't hit shit with their slow basic chain, is what it is. Not a game that frustrates you and makes you hate your fav KoF characters.

Eh, it's not out of the ordinary to get killed in a couple of moves, it's not like it'll make a big difference even at high level. Shane here is far more broken with her multiple instant full screen specials that are almost definitely breaking your guard. Orochi's near infinite seems a lot more dangerous but there's emergency roll and awakening to break out of that, still not a big difference with the usual. It's just pretty to watch.

Because it worked too well with 7K, we are getting varients for the bosses.  This time, they are given for free the moment you awaken them assuming if you were lucky and/or insane with their pulling their multis.

This is nothing new. There's already a lot of characters who can do things like that, why is anyone acting surprised.
The only thing new with this Rugal is that he can do all that at a much lower level than everyone else, but lower level doesn't mean anything in this game, because there's already a lot of people with a lot of characters at max level, and they can all do that. All it means is that he'll be able to kill giant bosses faster, this has zero consequence on the meta. PvP is long past that kind of achievement.
Characters that disrupt the meta are those with new mechanics that can't be countered, characters that nullify your actions, or characters that just decide that they can't get hit at all at any time they want. With a game that uses cooldown on skills, that's the ones that are annoying. High damage dealers only matter in PvE against giant bosses that just inflate their HP for arbitrary difficulty.

Next event is a New Year's theme that grants extra points for every New Year's Fighters used.  Also new Relay boss, Rice cake dungeons, and free rubies every check in.

'00 Athena will be the next Roulette feature and while she has been released a while back with FES Daimon, you can now craft her souls for her unit for free.

New updates coming that will bring a new difficulty to Guild Raid.  Orochi '97 and Orochi Leona will be getting some buffs along the way.

Advent dungeons will likely be merged into one sole dungeon rather than 3 separate ones as it is now (these are the ones that allow you to craft Sakura Athena, Halloween Yashiro, Underworld Yamazaki, and Sentai Ralf/Clark).

To prep ourselves for the big February event and to give us something to do during this drought, couple of new events will start tomorrow that includes free summon tokens and rubies at large numbers, a bingo card rewarding more goodies including unpair kits for Imprint Stones, and finally a new Super Mission that rewards special Imprint Stones.

Currently Kasumi '00 is out and can be gained for free via roulette and World Drop is back for all dungeons.

Also, Orochi Leona is the best shock unit thanks to her buffs hah

Next to the regular Rugal guild raid, comes an event raid, with Lady Chang. Also teasing again the extra difficulty tier for Rugal.

I'm just waiting for them to release gold imprint stones that aren't just for burn. I don't understand why every single raid mode gives silver stones for all pairs of elements, but burn is the only element for gold (and there's something that gives gold bleed but I can't remember which mode it is). It's so bad I stopped going for the max reward on expert for Rugal and just getting 4 tier 5 boxes (expert x2 and hard x2) because I need more shock stones, even if they're silver. Even the immortal bosses I stop before 380M damage to get the silver chest. It's not like I have the hammers to upgrade them all to lv10 anyway (that decision would easily go the other way if it was remotely doable to upgrade several dozens of stones to lv10).

So for some reason, the next FES to arrive in the upcoming Valentine update will be Elizabeth XI, who for some reason does not have her own 3PG despite her Seasonal counterpart being out for years.

Would recommend holding out your rubies for Athena XIII.  There are also free Summon tokens as part of a new login bonus.

Also, FES Idol Kula is the next to be featured in Roulette.  Best Kula and one of the best freeze units out there.


Edit:  The new Omega Rugal difficulty in raids has started and cleverly the way to beat this thing is with a new status infliction called "starlight". Elizabeth XI is the first to have this as well as the yet-to-be-released Athena XIII.

3PG for Orochi Iori
Fucking finally. The leak also points to a new Mai with a new card (Kagero no Mai).
Mian is starlight damage because of course ?? and yellow attack for 3 strong yellows in a row (counting O Iori's third comeback along with Athena). I just want one more purple.

edit
Wow O Iori's option card gives him a chance for darkness damage on a skill, and O Leona's option card increases her shock damage. They're getting serious.
Uh, wait, O Iori is just one time damage, not dot, not useful for raid. Hm.

Uh, wait, O Iori is just one time damage, not dot, not useful for raid. Hm.
It has its niche against raids and dungeon bosses that get debuffed with just Darkness aliment.  O. Iori just needs Power Charge Options and Stones to make use of it.

Speaking of Options, more 6* Option Cards arrived and they are based on the '96 Boss Team and Rugal and Saisyu.  However, they are only made from combining or gained via extremely low chance in Card Dungeons.  Their gimmick is providing buffs based on the Unit's color and each has a CD -1 sec buff.

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/60/41349

So, uh, it looks like live Co-op might be a thing after all if these notes are anything to go by.  Can't wait to smite grunts in 10fps combat.

Many Contenders have voiced the opinion that they would like a game mode where multiple players can play in real-time together.
I'm curious as to where the demand for this is mostly heard because this has never been brought up at least here in Global.

Also 2001 story is on the way but unsure if this is gonna arrive after the current Valentine's event (and they missed the chance to add in B. Jenet and Elizabeth as Valentine options like come on) since there is a planned collab happening this month.

In a questionable attempt to give us something to do as we approach the final week of this drought, the new FES Set featuring Serena has been released which is an indication that they want you spend rubies before the collab hits soon.  Anyways, the cards' purpose is to give you an edge in raids with a huge boost in Attack and Power Gauge upon tagging.

That is literally it.

a fancier alternative to Boss Syndrome but for protagonists.
And nobody saw that coming lol.
I'm just curious about characters that are already op like Mr Karate. Will they just stay there a FES being as strong as the boss syndrome and the new one ? Goenitz and Lady Zero are already close enough to the Boss syndromes, I don't know how far the powercreep can go.
Happy about the buffed chars and other than that I'm just waiting for epic quest 2 and a 3PG for Igniz.
Saw the two new units... Super lame. Especially the new cards. I'll stick to the existing 3PG for both of them. ... They don't even look like they got that much of a buff compared to the two Boss syndromes, what even is the point. Is just for the special signature core effect ? It keeps getting lamer.

Both Mai and Athena won the vote for who gets a FES class next and you can bet a large majority of the playerbase are gonna dump rubies for them.  If something like Boss Sylvie was a thing, there would not be interest for it other than completionists or fans.  They know what they are doing.

In other words, expect Kyo and Iori to have some kind of FES+ class in the future since Kyo was also in demand for a new FES unit and NESTS Kyo's buffs barely made any difference after Rachel was released for free.

Also, on a side note, don't expect any collab news for a while.  Barely a mention in the Korean stream.

I'll expect Kyo XI to get that, sure, but there really is no difference with a regular FES. This Athena and Mai could have been a regular FES as was expected by everyone, and they could have gotten this hero series later on.

Also, on a side note, don't expect any collab news for a while.  Barely a mention in the Korean stream.
It's weird, I could've sworn they said in the previous one that it was coming real soon ?

The biggest QoL we are getting is the ability to further level up BS and SS (just call them FES+) with the same method used to level up collabs by combining memories for invitations.  This is a huge blessing but this method wil, at this time, not reward you imprint stones unique to those units.  Hope this changes soon.

New event is a repeat of the Lady fighters event but now you have to option to redeem a free Lady Billy or Yashiro and do a Super Mission set.  The latter unit is an absolute must if you missed out Eileen or still need a reliable Shock DoT user.

Nothing on the next collab unfortunately so gotta wait 2 weeks for something.

Also the free summon ticket (2 by viewing an ad) now gives you a chance for FES along with updated units so FINALLY.

Oh good, finally. I can throw a few attempts at Mai and Athena without worrying that it'll be worthless if I don't immediately get 8 copies of them.
Speaking of which, the new 3PG have an incentive compared to the billion special cards they both already have : unique effects. Damage reduction for Mai and heal for Athena. Still not worth it, and the other new cards aren't too interesting either : upgraded Kaya set with extra crit like the Akane set and extra damage reduction (okay that's not too bad but only if you reeeeeally need a lot of defense), and the Mai option card is only for a few seconds when tagging in, so hard pass.

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on March 21, 2021, 11:08:13 PM
I'm closer to tier 47 here but I'm one Green Defense short for Tier 49.  Is it necessary to have all their capsules maxed out after getting A.50 or just a minimum of 2 maxed out?  Only ones got are T7 Jin and Leona XIII.  Have leftover Gold selectors from past events so I could use them for Wonderland Yuri.

For Green Defense, I have Ash and Halloween Alice fully maxed and looking to go for Idol May Lee to at least meet the level threshold.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on March 21, 2021, 11:26:01 PM
If I'm just at the recommended level, having just the basic 99*3 capsules doesn't cut it, 120 on each stat is the bare minimum. On the other hand, a Mian level 48 and 149 on all stats (with two teammates at 49) still plows through the yellow tier 50 like butter (it took me a long time to get her good stones). Depends if you have one of the OP characters or if you have a regular old FES Ash that barely makes it. Any gold needs to be maxed to pull their weight, but it doesn't feel too good maxing capsules for random golds. Early on the 40s, you could afford to take two good characters and one fodder gold, but in those pesky blue and green tiers, you really need to max them if you're not clear above the level requirement.
My teams were F Saisyu, Iori 95, Leona XII (I had a good Saisyu with high burn stones and cards, he was doing okay, and still, Iori barely cut it only after I gave him capsules AND strong burn imprint stones too), and Ash, Elizabeth, Iori XIII. WL Yuri should be better than Iori, but she'll still probably need high capsules and good imprint stones (like power generation and super armor + damage down if you don't have matching elemental ones). I hear Alice is great so if you have a good Alice and Ash, you don't need to build May Lee too much.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on March 22, 2021, 02:35:03 PM
Was able to get through Tier 47, but it took an hour as I didn't feel like giving Wonderland Yuri any stones or capsules.  She was able to get through it just fine at Lv. 46 as long as all her cores are unlocked while Leona XII and T7 Jin did must of the heavy lifting but both aren't known for being damage shredders so I spent resources maxing their stones.  Finished with just 4 seconds and saved up lots of resources that could have been passed to Wonderland Yuri.  It was either that or spend more rubies getting something memories for Holiday Daimon or Lady Brian heh.

Next event will be a collab (and the way they phrased it this is a new IP rather than a repeat unless they are mad enough to bring in 8 FES units) but to prevent early guesses that had occurred with Seven Knights, the portraits are completely blacked out and the background is Orochi's stage which doesn't mean anything.  More news will arrive in the coming days.

In perhaps one of the biggest troll moves these madlads done to date as if the Sins Collab wasn't enough, Carnival is back but THIS TIME it doesn't rely on cards obtained but instead it is based on dungeon clears with the Battle Card dungeon being the most reliable to grind.

And the grind is so immense that you will be given a pitiful 500 free AP to spend on the dungeons.  You would need to spend over 1000 auto clear tickets to get the max rewards or lord knows how many hours on auto in the max difficulty.  What is funny is that it was anticipated the Carnival will return based on the livestream that I saved over 100 card tickets with 5*-6* card tickets to boot to get through with it.

Oh and the Carnival only lasts a week.

So after a quick recap of what this series is, there is a character named Escanor that is mysteriously not in this much to everyone's anger.  This is because he is being reserved for the inevitable repeat.

The "attack on O Rugal" is also busted. You can deal 200 HP per day, but he still has 3500 HP left right now for me, and I don't think I missed more than one day, if any. So that requires 18 more days to finish him... But there's only about 12 days left right now IINM.
You can't finish it.
It's pretty clear they threw the carnival and this attack on O Rugal together at the last minute to delay the collab, but it's still a big gap of absolutely nothing since, what, the Lady event rerun ?

Rolled a couple of times and got Ban. Is he good?
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on March 31, 2021, 03:10:45 AM
Ban is very good for League.  Damage immunity after reaching 30% HP, disables attack buffs, guard crush with a high percentage.  If you get the Imprint Stones and max them up, he'll be a good pick for PvE.

Whatever you do, don't attempt to burn all your rubies to get his memories.  You can craft dimensional tickets and use them as a substitute to awaken collabs.

So for those who saw the stream noticed Merlin having access to Hyper Armor in one of her skills.  Apparently,  that feature got removed the moment the collab began.  Granted we were given a disclaimer to not expect some features in the final build, but still, ouch.

Also 7K's Eileen either got nerfed or some quirk happened when adjusting Power Gain and now her gain rate is worse than before.  WTF.  Either they are desperate to push 7DS as the new meta or realize how much the 7K collab units have dominated everything or both.

Trying to get Merlin, ended up getting the Free Liz(thanks...) and the Demon Meliodas(the non-free one) atm...

Yellow(Demon) Meliodas comes off as a very strong Raid Unit with alot of his chips in doing extra Darkness damage so there's that.
I think Merlin is best in PvE and I haven't heard much from Ban.

And I don't really care for the Free Meliodas or Free Liz, they may be as good as the 7Knights Freebie FES Unit but I don't really care THAT much.
I just want Merlin lol.

EDIT: But seriously, dick fucking move to put Free Liz on the damn banner and Free Meliodas in the other one...
I know they did it with the 7Knights Banner too but that only had 3 units, not fucking 4 here.

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/44197

The devs recently had an epiphany and noticed how lackluster the 7DS units are compared to FES+ and Seven Knights units.  Not saying that they are straight up bad but compared to the aformentioned units, they could've been better.  Therefore, they have made more adjustments to hopefully see more usage out of them.

~Meliodas can now negate Super/Hyper Armor with his Active Skill 2.  Active Skill 3 can be used even when attacked.
~Free Elizabeth and Free Meliodas gets 400 Penetration with Active Skill 1 and Active Skill 2 respectively.
~Merlin can now break guards with Active Skill 1, Active Skill 2 brings back Hyper Armor that was taken away for some reason, Active Skill 3 know has a 30% chance reset whenever you use any skills.
~Ban's Active Skill 2 makes him immune to damage for 3 seconds.

Later today, the next batch of 7DS units (Diane, Dancer Liz, and 7DS King) will be out along with their banner for cards.

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/44639

Following the 7DS collab, Boss Syndrome units will be the focus for the next event with the long-demanded release of BS memories needed to further level them up without needing dupes.  Keep in mind these are only for units with the BS logos on them and not SS namely Mai and Athena.

Additionally, new BS units will be arriving the following week.  Krizalid and Geese Howard will be next to receive this status, confirming at some point the Zeros and Igniz will also receive them.

So because a majority of players are likely low on rubies following the collab, a new ruby event will roll out, giving temporary rubies for spending for up to 10,000 rubies or 10 multi-summons unless you want to spend rubies elsewhere with the final reward being a free BS Memory.

The update will also readjusts the Power Charge changes that a lot of players complained along with last minute buffs to certain 7DS units like Diane and Elizabeth.

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/44647

Also a new Super Mission for an Imprint Stone will roll out in this update along with Akane's Dice board.

Boss Krizalid's class is Yellow Balance and Nightmare Geese's class is Green Attack.  Both are obtainable in their own banner rather than an all-in-1 banner with the other Boss units,  no surprise.

A plethora of events are on the way including a new Rush mode with their own shop, a new Dungeon with Orochi as the focus, new login-in rewards, and a new Super Mission giving you a Gold '97 unit for free of your choice.

Post by: Byakko on April 28, 2021, 04:17:19 PM
The video

Geese gets a new Raging Storm and Rashoumon, and basically the same specials but bigger (including a QUADRUPLE Shippuuken). I was expecting Ashura Shippuuken and Kokuu Repuuzan, his 02um supers. Krizalid gets a nice new move (combining multiple moves). Not sure if it's a super or a special (startup makes it look like a shadow version of the super where he starts with a fire pillar).
Those artworks look amazing btw.

Green attack for Geese, uh ? So I can give up on BS Orochi then. I just hope that both of them have a good leadership because green and yellow keep getting characters with leadership that REFUSE to fit a full team of the same color. NESTS, Lady, defense, Orochi... there's only Ash that has a great one.

oh yeah, her too.

Holiday Jenet also has the same leadership for Ash.  The coveted Power Charge boost outclasses any leadership with only Attack buffs.

Given the Southtown theme we are getting with the Rush dungeon, I'm predicting Nightmare Geese's leadership will give Attack buffs and Power Charge boost to Fatal Fury class, making SS Mai more useful than before in Raids.

At long last, Lin '00 will be added to the roster.  Before, he was a Gold unit and his souls were grindable in Story mode.  Past updates turned him into an FES class that deals Poison DoT effects.

He can be obtained for free by completing a Bingo mission along with his 5* Card.  Additionally, Baseball Vanessa can be gained in the Roulette via crafting souls.

In other words, expect Kyo and Iori to have some kind of FES+ class in the future since Kyo was also in demand for a new FES unit and NESTS Kyo's buffs barely made any difference after Rachel was released for free.
And it took 3 months to do it. (https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/46099)

And to celebrate this upcoming agony in 5/27, they will be 5k rubies to spend and a new mode will be added in hopes you get memories to increase the levels for SS units.

The official forum was updated with videos for Signature Kyo and Signature Iori. I'm almost certain the videos weren't there before in that post from last week, but maybe I just missed them ? They finally get remade combinations of their specials and an ultimate that is the same between the 2 of them : the 97 ending scene where they both kill Orochi. They're only showing 2 skills each + the ultimate though.
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/46099

Also my guild kicked me out a few weeks ago because I stopped caring about Guild Raid and I never speak in chat (I could consistently get the max reward on the hardest guild raid difficulty but the garbage reward odds / getting gold stones of utterly worthless color/type/element pissed me off) so if someone here needs a member... My friend code is 17TIQA.

Okay this is getting ridiculous, how do they keep introducing game breaking bugs in things that worked the day before ? They fixed the Rahk glitch on day one after the update, but Epic Quest and Infinite battle also have the "fight won't end" glitch. Either because everyone remains in total immunity and won't lose any more health, or after all enemies have disappeared from the screen but the fight won't end. How do they break things that worked fine and aren't supposed to change ?

With the 3rd anniversary just around the horizon, Netmarble has laid out their roadmap that will either break or BREAK the meta as we know it. (https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/60/46998)

For starters, 2 new slots of awakening stones will be added to all and future units.  These slots however will only allow a certain class of stones that will be introduced in the new update.  Star and Moon stones will more or less be like the stones already in the game be set for these slots.  You can also salvage current stones in your inventory for goodies so all those HP Imprint dupes will have some kind of purpose.

A new "Prestige System" will be added to further level up current units and as such, Infinite Battle will be adjusted.

Finally, Epic Quest 2 will be released sometime in Fall.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on June 03, 2021, 12:07:00 AM
Hey, finally a way to use all those hammers that keep piling up and going nowhere.  j/k
But really, hey, finally a garbage can where I can dump all those single stat not-even-plus imprint stones and get nothing in return. Although having a way to get rid of the gold stones that serve absolutely nobody in the entire roster will finally make the high end content worth something. I checked, out of all the possible combinations of color, element, and type, one third is for characters that exist, two third literally can't be used by anyone (except maybe the strong characters that don't have an element), and that's not even counting the first stat of the stone at lv5.

And the rewards of infinite battle will get adjusted to reflect the PvP competition. Read that as "only the top 5% will get anything worth, because we thought giving everyone at least a thousand rubies each week was a bit too generous. BTW the mat that everyone critically needs to do anything worth anything for the brand new system will be locked behind that obviously".

I don't want to be rewarded for the challenge against the entire player base including whales, I want to be rewarded for the time and effort I actually put in this and be given an opportunity to get to the next step, regardless of where the top players are.

Glad to hear they remember about Epic quest 2.

Rite of Passage will be paused to allow a new PvP mode to be used.  This is similar to the Tower of Trials with every certain set of floors containing a lethal boss in it.

The Prestige Mode will give a boost in any column for Colors of your choosings that'll affect all units gained.

The next collab will tie in with the 3rd Anniversary, which is around the last week of July.

Also, Hinako '00 is released and is a FES Unit.

Oh ffs.  More of these things already.  Poor Clone Zero not even getting the Zero-Col treatment.

At least they are wrapping up the OC cast of All Stars with their 6* Cards.  Meant to say "until" around mid-July when the free rubies expires.  My bad.

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/47836
Also, Iori and Kyo gain another set of 6* SP Cards available soon, alongside Eru's 6* Set cards.

On a side note, Metal Slug Code: J for mobile is about to do a KOF collab with Kyo added into their roster (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igpfVGrWJPc).  There is a decent chance the collab coming in July could be Metal Slug, but take it with a grain of salt.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on June 22, 2021, 07:42:10 PM
Metal Slug is definitely a possibility for a collab at any point in time (whether it's now or a year from now) now that there's a game coming out, if SNK tells Netmarble to do it.

For the 2 new BS, I just hope there will be red, purple or blue. Green and yellow are full of op/broken characters, blue has Rugal and that's it (Ryo and O Leona are good but nowhere close), in red, Mr Karate is basically almost BS level but Geese has fallen off a cliff and there's no one else (maybe Mai but I don't have her maxed), and purple has Iori and then Nameless, Igniz, Lady Maxima are still good but not on the same level of broken. Fuck, I can't even fully clear (within 100 s) tier 25 of this week's elemental boss with Iori / Nameless / Lady Max because there's AGAIN no good leadership that helps everyone unless you're going full NESTS, and that team is not good enough.

Edit

Damn. They look insane, both the models and their 5pg becoming specials or 3pg. Their outfit is more mecha-ified than I expected, I wonder if that's a do-over of the robotized models that have been datamined forever ago with "phantom" Kyo/Iori/Chizuru. Or are the mecha versions of these guys still scheduled for epic quest 2 since Netmarble also announced it was still planned for this year ?
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on June 23, 2021, 03:59:18 PM
These variants are brand new and the cyborg-esque versions that were datamined are still set for Epic Quest 2.

With the collab around the corner, my advice is to just aim for the units themselves instead of splurging for dupes for their memories with the free rubies + whichever rubies you may have left.  Or spend for their much better cards as the new 3PGs can be applied to base Igniz and O.Zero and wait for BS Igniz/O.Zero banner to come back in the future.

Boss Syndrome Igniz is a Blue Balance unit that gives 55% boost to every All Star unit at the cost of 5% HP.  Boss Syndrom O.Zero is a Purple Attack unit with a boost in Attack and Power Charge to all Purple class, similar to SS Athena.

The event also comes with the dreaded Carnival icon that rewards a BS Memory upon completing the score.  HOWEVER, this is heavily dependent on cards now.  As always, 6* cards net the highest score, but it will take a while to get enough.

At this point, if you have a FES+ unit at around A3 with all their Imprint Stones, you really don't need to splurge into these new units since the collab is approaching next month.

I had somewhere between 15 and 20 pages of cards in my mailbox, I went through picking the 6* cards, threw in some card selectors I had left over from other events that I never collected, and just like that I shot to over halfway through in the carnival, almost 2/3. I did notice that the drop rate for 6* cards was lower than the first time around, where I almost got to the end in a day. (edit - just checked and I mean in term of the number of rewards... in term of points, I'm barely a third through it)
Also 35 000 rubies got me 6 copies of BSOZero (plus a couple copies of the 6* option card) and no Igniz. (I give zero shit about the collab, with the track record so far, I'll need to know what it is BEFORE I even consider putting rubies in it)

Tried out the new Chapter of Fight and hit my limit at Floor 35.  Payload is awful for the time being with random Moon/Star boxes rarely netting you Gold Stones and to get the colored ones, you need to do a months worth of grinding unless you somehow pulled the right stone for your FES+ or 7K/7DS collab (although my A5 Orochi Iori with maxed Att+ Stones has over 90,000 Combat Power, no pun intended).  Anyone that doesn't have a team of these or at least 3 that can guarantee you a win is outta of luck but can still get to Floor 25 ish.

Oh and the auto-clear tickets for Chapter of Fight is $5 for some reason with 80 rubies to boot.

I want to say I expect DoA because it has girls, but DoA is much less alive than Dynasty Warriors / Samurai Warriors, both of which have stuff currently planned.

I got lv50 BS Igniz, and I'm hitting 270M on the spider mech with BSIgniz, NGeese, regular Geese (with shock moon & sun silver imprint stones and an extra Nightmare Rashoumon), and Mr Karate & Goenitz with the chill valentine card. I was stuck around 220 just before (with regular Igniz instead of BS Igniz).

For some asinine reason, that is all we are getting for this collab.  No Hayabusa, no Ayane, no Hitomi, no Tina, all getting the Escanor/Roman Reigns treatment of being intentionally withheld for a future repeat.

All 4 of them will also come with swimsuit variations.  That's another 8 FES units in total.  Cheers.

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/60/49248

A unique dungeon similar to Chapter of Fight will come that restricts to just DOA6 units and will reward you up to 5k rubies.

Since modes like these demand more CP, a new feature called Transcend Battle Card will "awaken" all existing cards.  Good way to free up excess 6* cards.

EQ2 comes at the end of August and confirmed the NESTS cyborg variants will be available.

Buff Selector Dungeon is another uneeded new mode cause love is dead and the gimmick this time is random settings for rewards and junk seriously no one asked for this.

Well I don't care for DOA's character lineup, but I know but these 4 are among the most popular. I guess this will be this year's special substitute for Swimsuit fighters which also makes sense. I kinda wish there was a classic Kasumi, though.

I do agree with one point in the handbook that Dungeons are getting repetitive, and I just hope these so-called random buffs are noticable in some shape or form.

Pretty ironic since they had acknowledged it as a major complaint and updated dungeons so it can be completed with Auto-Tickets, and now they are reverting it right back to what is was before with these extra dungeons for rewards you have no control over.

On a side note they quietly took out the $5 skip ticket bundle for Chapter of Fight as it was a dumb idea from the get-go.  In fact, removing the option to auto-clear that was present before the new mode was just dumb in general.

At least we will finally get that long awaited swimsuit rush dungeon that I can use my A5 Summer Mature and A5 Summer Vice on, even if it's a collab with DOA6.

Chapter of Fight is a joke. The CP requirement ramps us pretty quick and having type restrictions isn't fun. A limited event version that restricts you to characters in banners I will very likely pass over? Imma just pretend it doesn't exist.

They're going way too fast with adding new features to power up your characters especially with how obvious the cash grab is getting. Even that aside, so many things at once is overcomplicating things. Doesn't help that Awakening 6-10 are expected to come at some point.

Those DOA characters are their go to for collaborations. On the one hand, not surprising. On the other hand, said collaborations have all been all waifu games. KOF isn't all waifu. They could have added male characters as well. Would have been dope to see the likes of Hayabusa, Bass, Raidou, etc. mixed in.

Finally, we're really getting EQ2 before 2002 story?

Post by: Xhominid on July 17, 2021, 07:48:01 AM
I don't really have much of a problem with their lineup, all things considering, but I wouldn't be surprised if Netmarble equally asked for these 4 and their swimsuits as well.
I know for the Azur Lane collab, it was primarily these 4 as well as like 1-2 from VV itself.
And while Ryu Hayabusa should absolutely be in this and it's weird he's not an option, this isn't the first time Netmarble did nonsense with this themselves(No Escanor or Gowther anyone?).

Ayane is the weirdest person to be out as she was pretty much the collab queen until recently but the others aren't as super ridiculously popular as the 4 here(especially since you can say that Nyotengu is basically the 3rd most popular of the new females introduced in DOA AND showed up in Ni-Oh 2).

Overall view of the 4 DOA6 units along with their EX swimsuit varients.  Honoka and Marie Rose can be acquired for free via coin shop gained from rush dungeon and roulette while their alts and the rest are obtainable via banners.  Nyotengu looks really good here.

Infinite Battle is also getting adjusted with Geese '96 and Krauser '96 now being added to the summon pool.  Also a new daily login event that grants Elite Hammers and Imprint Stone Selectors.

Its pretty much a given that Netmarble is done with livestreams that they are giving away 2k rubies via code.

In the mission system revamp, I already can't get the guild-related ones and the limit break ones since I already max limit broke everyone. Cool cool cool.

Yea, this is a really weird direction but, yay free SS except one you get out of 24 other items in a RNG board that can cost actual money if you aren't lucky, and the other is gain from pulling other FES units and memories which the latter can be done with filler purple memories when combining.  Apparently, there will not be a Vol.1-2 for Battle Cards as all are in one banner for cards.

Infinite Fight got adjusted to Absolute War and now you can win with just 2 units instead of having 1 take down 3 and the rewards can be used to spend for the added Prestige system called "Fame" to further level up CP.


Also if Collabs can now go FES+, then units like Amakusa, Devil Jin/Kazuya, and Roman Reigns may end up getting Boss Syndrome class the moment their collabs get reruns.

Well there's only 4 non-duplicate characters and all 4 cards are in vol1, so...
I think I'll wait for vol2 with regular Nyotengu and swimsuit Honoka, I want those red units (skipping on SSMai was a mistake).
Oh, the dimension exchange opened a cool option exclusively for the DoA banner, if you get DoA memories of a unit you don't care about, you can flush 3 of them for one SS memory. Would've been cool for the others, I had like 5 extra memories of BS Rugal, 2 of NGeese, and 3 of BSOZero trying to get more of Orochi, Krizalid and Igniz.

Not holding my breath for a return of Tekken or SamSho collabs. Jin, Kazuya and Heihachi would all need an overhaul, but I don't think I'd want three Jins anyway, even if the current 2 are irrelevant (and I don't want Devil Jin's moves or massive wings). I'd be down for a Kazuya with that shirt-vest combo, and Heihachi with his Tekken 3 topless kimono (not the tiger karategi) but apparently Bamco forgot that outfit existed long ago.

edit - got Marie Rose early in that randomized grid in a fluke. Took her to the Beach of Paradise, it's a ladder of increasing difficulty like the tower of trials that's only playable with DoA characters. Top of the ladder requires a CP of 74k, you know, in case you can max awaken those FES / Signature characters.

What they did with this collab is a joke.
Half of the units are SS so you can't even Dimension Invite to awaken.
The DOA exclusive dungeon gives you a large amount of rubies but you need a large amount just to complete it.
Collab freebies
Absolute War is reworked Infinite Battle and apparently the rewards got nerfed
I think that one got rewards nerfed because dailies can now give 150 rubies if you do them all rather than just 6 fot 100 + they give out boxes that can reward a few more.

Maximilian is doing a sponsored stream showcasing what the collab contains.

Surprised Netmarble is returning to livestreaming but outside of their official channel and to someone more well known in the fighting game community (and more well known in his fighting games, sorry Travis).  Already doing way more viewers.

(And they did not censor swimsuit Marie Rose for his build after the trouble they went through with Merlin)

I really wish Netmarble gave Max a heads up on everything going on so we don't have to witness such awkwardness.  I wanna imagine one day, in a desperate attempt to bring in new players, they realized they needed a prominent figure who knows a lot about fighting games, walked up to Max's door, tossed him the app, and prayed he at least gets the point across.

The second banner is now out for SS Nyotengu and DoA6 Kasumi/Honoka.

There is also the battle pass which the free variant rewards 100 coins for Marie Rose's board.  But the time this collab ends, you'll likely have gained Marie Rose for free if you have been doing the daily logins since the start of the collab.

At best, either a unit at A3 with max FES cards and their DoA Imprint Stones at +10 can make this doable.  Honoka is capable of doing this with the free memories gained (and thankfully her own memory also counts for the amount, further reducing the quota).  Marie Rose was supposed to be for the other ladder but good luck even getting her memories.  You are better off with either dumping invites to DoA6 Kasumi, Nyotengu, or Marie or somehow be lucky to get SS Kasumi to complete the ladder.

In fairness, Halloween Chris did had a niche role for Purple units for having the coveted Power Charge leadership skill and was one of the earliest Darkness users.  He ended up getting gutted by SS Athena and much better Darkness DoT units.

Don't expect any future FES to be on par with FES+ and recent collabs with their own Imprint Stones.

Preview of the upcoming Epic Quest Battle Card artwork that will be used in Igniz, Maxima, and O.Zero's new unique cards and they all look amazing. (https://www.reddit.com/r/KOFALLSTAR/comments/p7drc2/spoilers_new_epic_quest_2_character_battlecard)

There was also datamine done that hints SS K' and SS Kula that will likely be released during the launch of EQ2 along with their 6* SP cards that has them do joint attacks similar to SS Kyo and SS Iori.

New code for 2k rubies: THISISFORYOU.  No iOS link yet.

A Q&A vid was done just a while ago that highlights key changes in the future.

•2nd half of the year, daily missions will be adjusted to be less time consuiming as they are now.
•PVP mode will have a casual feature when matchmaking so you don't have to rely on Ranked.
•Quarterly years is when they will do big changes and updates.
•New Guild mode in the works.
•A previous Q&A video mentions why we have yet to see a repeat of any collab aside from the ones for Global (Gintama and Samsho) and it was due to renegotiating new contracts which can be expensive.  The MC also tells that one of the highest requested collabs (at least in the Korean side) is Steel Troops (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steel_Troops). Don't be surprised if this ever comes to fruition.

Huge update is only hours away and already it's gotten bad.  SS memories return but unlike the DoA6 collab where you can exchange FES units, you need a 3 copies of any SS unit to get a blank memory.

One of the previous Carnival rewards included a blank BS/SS memories.  This Carnival reward including 2 Platinum Card selectors with the final reward being a generic FES memory instead of a FES+ one.  Ugh.

Quote

Card transcending system is shit. Keep flushing cards until you get an option that remotely makes a tiny bit of sense. Did they think the merge system wasn't good enough to force you to dump thousands of cards down the drain and give the illusion that the inbox had any purpose ?

feel like FES units are slowly becoming the new Gold.

 

At this point almost all new characters are either SS or BS.

It seems like all KOF's popular/iconic characters are getting the SS treatment from now on to make sure

these characters are relevant meta wise.

 

FES is indeed saturated, anything not FES can be considered trash (metawise).

As others have already stated, last time anything Gold was relevant meta wise was Kazuya.

And tbh, certain (older) FES characters already feel pretty weak.

The latest dev video (I miss you, Ruby King) showcased the results from the recent "buff these FES but still have them die to FES+" polls.

~Nameless is the top voted in all regions to either get a major overhaul in his kit, or be discarded entirely in favor for an upcoming SS variant in which he will get prioritize to promote the '02 story but that is just my guess.  Amongst the others include Ash, Mukai, and Rock Howard who desperately needs something to stand out.

Buffs include Hyper Armor, DoT damage increase which would benefit Ash, and adjusting hitboxes and animations that would improve Mukai.  Alongside these top picks, esrly FES+ characters will be buffed to keep up with the meta such as Omega Rugal '95 and Boss Orochi.

Halloween event has all but confirmed and certain Halloween themed units will be buffed.

Finally, while a date has not been announced, more Lady fighters (genderbent males) and units that debuted from Ash Saga are set to appear soon.

Yeah, just Alice and Chris - they get a much easier time applying their special effect (extra damage and petrify). None of the gold units are getting anything, even though the Halloween shop will sell a gold Halloween unit selector.

On the other FES buffs - in Chapter of Fight, I've been having the most trouble with yellow units keeping up with CP (I do not want to run the clock doing 0 damage all the time). I wish Saiki and LOZero got upgrades for that, they're great but they've become virtually unusable. And somehow, Honoka and Krizalid refuse to pass the 100k CP bar whatever I give them with 4 lv10 stones, only my Kyo got there.

Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on October 14, 2021, 06:40:26 PM
Yea this one is a doozy.  Doesn't help that not all of them are even viable.

To make things worse, you gotta have the following:

•Both FES Halloween units at complete max stats including 6* FES Set cards, Imprint Stones all at +10 (at best the Gold HP ones as the ATT Poison and Darkness are hard to come by), and 447 in capsule stats.  They made things slightly forgiving with unit selectors for free.
•Kula's 3PG from her SS banner, the one with K' involved.  This also includes giving every resource to Halloween Kula to even get her damage going.  You could try the other 3PG card but it pales in comparison to her SS one.

Halloween Angel as the leader can increase critical damage to 50% but this requires you to have at least a maxed out power hitter to get the full benefits.  Thankfully you don't need to max her out.

Halloween Heidern is the 3rd Purple Halloween unit with Chris as the leader but aside from Bleed DoT, he doesn't have much going on.

This would have been a good chance to release something like FES Halloween Shingo that gives a Power Charge increase to Halloween units, but alas.  Also wish Alice has a 3PG card with the Power Charge buff she gained.

Turns out that team relay was a big troll and his HP bar is in the billions but you only need to deal 10% damage to get all the rewards. It's still tough to get the Halloween units decent enough to get there, but it's manageable, you don't need everyone at 5* and you can avoid splurging on stones that you're basically tossing down the trash (just lv3 to 5 stones and 3*~4* awakening is enough if you temporarily give them your strong card sets). It does need some fine tuning and a few tries.
Chris leading team purple and Kula with the SS special card is a must, yeah (control Chris so that he doesn't whiff all his supers by a mile, and take out Heidern's 5pg card because it can't grab the boss but his base super can). The rest is playing around with Angel, Alice and anyone else until you hit the spot.

And then just hope they never try that shit again.

Post by: Kirishima on October 15, 2021, 01:56:56 PM
It's really just two and those are FES Halloween Chris/Alice for they at least have some niche down the road (Alice with Poison DoT vs Geese Raid with weakness to Poison, Halloween Chris with Power Charge Leadership if you don't have SS Athena).  If you don't have SS Kula's 3PG, unfortunately need some resources for Halloween Kula to make up for it as well as her other 6* cards.  At least with Freeze, she can also be an asset to Freeze-weak Relay Boss if you don't have SS Kula.

Don't bother with Imprint Stones for Heidern and just put any card that boosts his attack and Bleed DoT in general.  Halloween Angel is only good for leadership even at low level so also don't give her anything.

After going through the event, it turns out you don't really need Gold stones for anyone and at best Silver stones works (for at least they can be Unpaired) even the Yellow Square Imprint that boost Power Charge you can get in the current Halloween Rush Dungeon works.

I'll take that King. Don't care about Yuri.
XIII outfits I assume?
Can't even remember how they looked in XIII but King has the white shirt and Yuri has those gloves ? Which game are those from ? (edit - yep, those both match their XIII version) Also I don't remember their XIII version being datamined even though everyone from XIII and XIV were datamined a long ass time ago.

Also please don't give King Illusion Dance... Just stick with Silent Flash and the giant Venom blast and / or, almost certainly, that Trap Kick HSDM from 02UM. Secret Mirage.

Aside from the release of these two SS Units with a new set of 6* Set Cards and a new 6* Option Card, a new rush dungeon that will focus on them will be added, as this is now the norm.

A new dungeon has been introduced called Deimos Base and for the time being, the rewards include EXP Capsules, Fighter Tickets, and up to 500 rubies.  It is in its Beta phase and will go through several seasons, no doubt testing the waters for their next collab mode.  In this mode, only Awakened units are usable and if they get knocked out, they are removed from the mode unless you use a specific item for $5 to revive them because you know they would do that.

After what felt like 72 years, FINALLY a new inventory menu for Imprint Stones will be added so you no longer can access via a unit just to make modifications on it.

Finally, via their patch notes, certain mission requirements from Epic Quest will be adjusted when given the Epic Auto Skip Ticket.  This could mean that the mission where you need to use '01 O.Zero, who could barely dent a hit in Mission 2-10 and only possible if you have a $200 A5 FES+ unit, will be achieved just by having him on your team and toss a ticket after if you cleared it with other units.  Said reason to use '01 O.Zero is just to get his 3PG Card.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on November 02, 2021, 12:59:29 AM
So there's really no reward for advancing in the Deimos mode, beside the event stuff ? I see on the forum that "it's a beta so there's no first clear reward". Does that mean it'll be like the tower of trials where you'll get stuff only the first time you clear each level and then fucking nothing and you can't replay lower levels to farm ? So it's another mode that'll rely on "seasons" to decide when they want to give us anything, and so far it's painfully long to progress in this thing... It's not even like revival hell (that they straight up forgot because of the dumb level requirement beyond the cap) in which you can at least still get a tiny bit of slow drip of EXP capsules.
They really keep doing those stupid modes with the same model on purpose.

Finally, via their patch notes, certain mission requirements from Epic Quest will be adjusted when given the Epic Auto Skip Ticket.  This could mean that the mission where you need to use '01 O.Zero, who could barely dent a hit in Mission 2-10 and only possible if you have a $200 A5 FES+ unit, will be achieved just by having him on your team and toss a ticket after if you cleared it with other units.  Said reason to use '01 O.Zero is just to get his 3PG Card.
Is there even any way to get more of the epic quest auto clear tickets ? Because the stash that they gave that one time is long gone for me. I forgot I actually crafted some tickets for that at the beginning. They didn't give shit.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Darkflare on November 02, 2021, 01:48:56 AM
You can craft the Epic Quest skips using regular Skip tickets at a rate of 5 per 1.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on November 02, 2021, 01:50:13 AM
Oh shit I forgot that's the dumpster fire of an idea they chose for that. Yeah fuck that. If they ever decide to make the OZero quest available with a skip ticket, I'll craft the one ticket for that and then never touch the thing again. I'll get Phantom Igniz in two years. (and his memories two years after that)

As for Deimos : at least it's nice if you want to test out a few characters of a lower awakening level, before having to wait until the next season. This is something that's seriously lacking in most other modes that need you to get a high score to get the rewards.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Darkflare on November 02, 2021, 01:57:37 AM
You can't skip that quest even if complete all the sub missions?
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on November 02, 2021, 02:00:34 AM
Once you complete the sub missions, the option to skip is available, but it still requires a ticket, and there's no way I'm wasting precious regular skip tickets at a 5-to-1 rate for something that will take several months to complete any way (raising the bonus stats to 150 then 270 for Phantom Igniz, and then probably much more before he's actually beatable). I did complete the missions for the Phantom Zero quest, so when the battle card can be obtained with a skip ticket, I'll make only one ticket for that, and that'll be it for the mode.

edit
cleared Deimos floor 50. some floors forbid you from using more than one BS or SS character in your team, which makes you go all out near the end. I hope you made some strong Mr. Karate, Goenitz, red Honoka and the likes, if not you're pretty screwed.
It looks like you actually replay previous stages within a season, I assume you won't get extra rewards, but that makes it really nice to test out some new character you're currently building up.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on November 03, 2021, 01:10:49 AM
One suggestion for the final floors of Deimos Base is to have '98 Athena as your leader who will provide 2% HP Regen every couple of seconds to negate the DoT condition while you use your best striker for healing.  Majority of players go straight to SS Honoka as she was the only one at the time that was free and easiest to fully max out.  Buffs you get go only for your main damage dealer who has access to their 3PG card.

Was able to clear it only with Boss Goenitz until his health couldn't make it and miraculously pulled if off with The Rock, who I only added just to stall with his 3PG while Goenitz's healing striker becomes active again to continue.

I can see them doing this stuff again in the next collab or in a future event where you are restricted to seasonals.  EQ boosters were hinted as a future reward through Deimos Base so there's that.

Also, I like how the Rush Mode for Women's Fighters is based on '94 and XIII with the latter replicating the team ending.

Post by: Byakko on November 10, 2021, 01:06:41 AM
I just realized that the Deimos mode was reset to a new season (with event missions reset too). If the seasons are weekly like League and Infinite absolute war, then the rewards being on a first clear basis are a lot more relevant (even if there's still not reward right now). As long as the rewards aren't just dumb souls and exp capsules... Give us hammers and EQ2 stuff whatever new currency is coming up.
And yeah, the relevance of healing strikers is a lot higher now.

The long awaited updates to Ash and Nameless are about to be live soon.  They don't do much to at least keep up with FES+ sadly.

•Nameless' S1 now disables all Skills after contact in PvP.
•Nameless' S2 gives him Super Armor in a meta where everything breaks Armor.
•Nameless' S3 increases his Attack by 27%.
•NESTS Test Subject core now gives 5% Power upon hitting a skill rather than rely on Critical Hits and increases Penetration to 800.
•Islode core grants a 50% Burn rate from 25%.

•Ash's S2 now has a 70% of breaking Guard and grants Super Armor.
•Ash's S3 can Skill Reset at 50%.
•Sachertorte Core now grants the DEF>Att conversion when he hits an Opponent rather than hitting them when they are inflicted with a status condition so there is that.
•Sneering Flame Core now adds Darkness to his list of Status condition that gives him Super Armor and in addition, now increases Power when he has a combo count of over 10 hits.

Overall, they could have been more better but at least Ash has finally gotten so much needed improvements.  Although a barrier skill would at least been helpful.

Also for 5k rubies (ew), you can now get an exclusive Moon Imprint Stone for either one of them.

The stones are for NESTS and Nationality Unknown characters, so they can go to others who deserve it more, like, say, BS OZero, Igniz, Leona, Goenitz or ORugal, if you want to send their CP through the roof. Hell, you can get two of each, so you can boost 4 of those.

Missed opportunity to make a Miss Sol Badguy if they are hellbent on an all female distribution yet again.  At this point, might as well pitch a collab with Stardom, Arcana Heart, Senran Kagura, and RWBY.

One of these days they will rerun the Samsho collab and add Iroha in it so Team Queens Gate can finally be reunited and be meta at the same time.


Sol and May are gonna be free with Sol's 3PG card as Dungeon rewards and May by login.  I expect another dual banner as it's tradition.  No word on how Sol will be gained but guessing much like Honoka, it'll likely be via Carnival.

I've seen people get mad we didn't get Ayane or Ryu Hayabusa, Hayate or any of the other males with DOA and honestly, I gotta agree.
People love to say DOA is just for the females but that's primarily fan misconception because Xtreme exists(damn that series...).

But as you stated, Guilty Gear is hilariously doing the same thing outside of Sol Badguy and people was mad at 7DS not including Escanor(which is a real dick move) so it makes sense here as well.

I would love to agree with this statement so much, but Xtreme isn't the only reason for that misconception. They've been doing the just for the females thing from the very beginning. The difference is that they doubled down on that for 5 and 6. Mishandling of the DLC aside, pretty much all of the clothing DLC was made for the female characters with males only getting something if the theme could also fit with them. Xtreme isn't exactly helping, but to say the fighting games themselves aren't the reason why there's such a "misconception" isn't correct either.

What the hell have they done to Sol's arm in his portrait?

For this go round, there will be a mix of regular FES class that you can level up with Invites, and SS because we haven't suffered enough yet.

FES - I-No, Ramlethal, May
SS - Sol Badguy, Baiken, Dizzy

Sol in particular will be available in a Lucky Dice event, similar to how Marie Rose was available.

Collab event starts and ends Nov. 23 – Dec. 9

Few new modes are introduces including a Dungeon where you are restricted to Xrd units but the rewards come with rubies, a new Rush Dungeon to grind Imprint Stones for Xrd units, Guild raids specific for Xrd stuff, and a Carnival by participating in all of the above for some reason.

The belief is that Netmarble is intentionally holding back some more popular names in the hopes of a potential rerun where they can then be released (Devil Forms, Roman Reigns, Escanor, etc).  However, aside from Samsho and Gintama both that were only given reruns due to Global's launch, not a single collab has yet to return.

It's also not the first time that Sol Badguy had to recruit his harem team for a collab. (https://page.onstove.com/epicseven/global/view/5185450)

JFC Netmarble really went ahead and cut in half the number of summon tokens in the 80 bucks package, from 8 to 4 for both characters and cards summons. Wow.

The official forum is getting mad that apparently Deimos nerfed the heal rate and made bosses strip your buffs, haven't tried it yet but didn't the spiders already strip your buffs ?
And also some are saying that Signature Chizuru was datamined. I'm glad she's getting work done.

It was like that as well during the DoA6 collab.  They intially put the most desirable units as SS and gave them their own banners.

This time not only will the Xrd collab last for 2 weeks instead of the usual 3 for reasons but now their lastest gimmick is the introduction to variations to 6* Special Cards.  Now instead of having just one, they are split into 3 catagories (Attack, Blast, and Critical Damage) so good luck with that.  Expect this to be the norm in their next FES+ banner.

Also yea, Deimos Base got heavily adjusted.  Just reached lv.30 and already the mooks have gone extremely powerful even for my BS Goenitz that is expected at around lv.45+.  Fun times with free 500 rubies are over.

So the Deimos heal nerf goes up to 85%, and there are often 2 spiders per wave, which is a huge fucking pain, it's so aggressive all of a sudden. Are we just expected to have 150 awakened units to use 3 per level until the end ?
It's crazy how the heal supports (and that one single heal leader skill) finally jumped up high in the meta, Netmarble saw that and said "now hold on a second" and kicked them right back to the deep end of the meta where they belong. And that's immediately after splitting the DoA units between "gain 15% power" and "heal 12%". What the hell.

Attention : the new special effect on the special cards for the GG units works even on the second special slot. Put both a crit special card and an atk special card and you get both bonuses.
I wouldn't mind if they expanded on that, but Netmarble doesn't seem to care about releasing new specials for old characters. I wish Lady Geese got Asura Shippuuken as a new 3PG card already, not to mention other supers like Silent Flash, Hien Senpuu Juudan kyaku '97, Vulcan Punch... They started teasing that with the first 3PG 6* cards for the likes of Andy, Mature, Chris, but then they just dropped it forever to just focus on new characters (because they're obviously not going to release FES / Signature versions of those guys anytime soon).
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on November 26, 2021, 02:45:11 AM
That's really nifty on the 3PG stack bonuses.  Makes me wonder if one day they can redo the universal cards but give out one of these buffs included on them.  Wishful thinking but we have a better chance of K9999 coming to the roster than that ever happening.

On Deimos, I gave up after lv.40 as the time needed to put into winning 500 rubies tp lv.50 will be a waste.  I really hope they don't troll us and finally put in blank FES+ memories but keep the health reduction nerf.  At least let us use more than 1 FES+.

It's Netmarble's servers, they regularly hang up when there's a lot of activity. The first day of a collab is often really hard to do anything and navigate correctly. And when the game decides that it waited too long, it always blames your device's connection.

I don't like the guitar gimmick but Ino is a lot more fun than I expected.
Bingo event opened... and they're still giving the useless base imprint stones, and they completely stopped giving stone unpair kits. Stone RNG is so bad, I get tons of color / type / element combinations that don't even exist but nothing of the types I need, I really need a couple of unpair kits to swap around some moon and star stones to other units, but I can't.

Ended up doing real well on the Banner thus far... not really no.
I easily gotten the GG Fest Set through Sol Tickets but getting the 3PGs was a nightmare(Had to hit the Card Pity twice).
I have A3 Dizzy, Ramlethal, May and I-No. And I have A1 Sol with A2 on the way.
I hope I can get Baiken before the Event is over but that's gonna be a tall order unless I get some serious luck thanks to my terrible luck at the Card Gacha

Dizzy is an absolute monster and I-No is hilarious when she really gets going. Sol and May are really good at what they do and Ramlethal is damn good at Darkness/Starlight.

The event is ending soon and have a few Xrd card selectors on deck.

The one thing I hate is the concept of splitting the 3PG Special Card into three different categories of Attack, Skill, and Critical and you can be sure Netmarble is gonna go ham on this again in the future.  Couldn't find this anywhere but might as well.

I am in need of a secondary Special Card for May and I-No.  Was able to snag 2 of each for the rest with Sol of all 3 thanks to the rush dungeon and gonna make the most of it but can't make up my mind for those two.

Which category fits May and I-No?  For reference I have Attack Special for May and Critical Special for I-No despite not having any kind of Critical core bonus in her kit as well as May.


Also. Chizuru and Maki datamined for a future FES+ event.

Goddamn, I got the most absurd luck, super glad I skipped SS Yuri and King because it helped.

Was able to reach pity once on the 3 banners and ended up with enough to A3 May and I-no with May needing one more memory for A4. I got Ram to show up and just used DIs to A3. Used up the selector to get Baiken, but Dizzy kept showing up enough times to actually reach A4. Got enough points to get Sol to A2, thinking of using the Memory selector to just A3 him as well. Battle Card summons went pretty good. Got one of every finisher but Dizzy's and had to use the selector for it. Missing one of the FES set cards, but I got two of both Option cards at least. Tempting as it may be to try and go for the last FES card I'm missing, I'll probably call it right there and save rubies, relying on Sol summons for free summons.

The luck was so absurd I actually got I-No's 3PG in the Battle Card Dungeon although I already had it and it was even the same buff.

Been looking for the answer myself, but it seems to be Crit if only due to higher CP. Dizzy is the exception because she gets more damage out of Skill due to being able to lower her cooldowns to the point she can spam like a pseudo awakening.

Honestly, it doesn't matter the extra stat you roll from the 3PG card to me, the Specials themselves are so busted because they take so long to do, you can basically do it all over again without much of an issue or easily clear Immortals with them.
If you only have the choice, it's really Crit or Atk based solely on the character at large.

Tally of all of the Guilty Gear Collab stuff I was able to get:

A3 Sol
A3 Dizzy
A3 Ramlethal
A3 May
A3 I-No
A2 Baiken(I will A3 her with the Box that contains the SS Memory)

1 Set of the GG Fes Cards and a spare 3rd Card
2 Baiken 3PG and 1 PG for everyone but Sol who has all 3 of his from the Event
and 2 of the Option Cards

And it took me doing virtually everything the game had to offer to get all of that and some Affinity Farming(which blew through all of the AP I had stocked up).
Thank goodness this next Event requires no Rubies to be spent for SS Chizuru(Until they pull that bullshit to get her to A3...) so I can actually stock up.

My luck at the Dead or Alive Collab basically made the Guilty Gear Collab so difficult.

I dumped my many useless FES memories into invitations to jump Ino and Ram to A5, and all the GG FES memories I was rolling into Signature memories for Sol and Baiken ; I finished Sol with his special rolls but Baiken will sit unfinished for a bit. I'm skipping Dizzy, and laughing at May. And then I threw the rest of my rubies into cards, because that GG set is too strong, got 3 of them for Sol, Ram, Ino.

I have one leftover Signature memory that Baiken can't use right now, plus another one is coming in that delayed box in a few days, I'm not sure yet if I'll use it for SS Kula, Nyotengu, Baiken, who are all unfinished but pretty close, or maybe to push up Athena or whoever is coming next. I want to try Athena because I need more starlight damage, Kyo can't solo that one Geese raid hard mode without an extra Tekken set, I'll try Ram next week / after I +10 her stones.

For the stone crafting, I tried to get a few tier IV chests but only got one gold stone that I can't even use because fuck those RNG (50% odds for gold stone my ass), and I decided I had better odds just rolling 4 times more tier I chests. I managed to get a few silver stones that I actually need - and still a whole bunch of useless shit.

Personally I had a much easier time with this than usual.

Watch out with the GG exchange shop, this time around the shop will close in a few hours at the same time as the event for some fucking reason, they're not letting us make use of the daily hammers ! They even removed the Baiken raid way early so fuck those 150 Sol coins if you didn't do it early enough today.

I dumped my many useless FES memories into invitations to jump Ino and Ram to A5, and all the GG FES memories I was rolling into Signature memories for Sol and Baiken ; I finished Sol with his special rolls but Baiken will sit unfinished for a bit. I'm skipping Dizzy, and laughing at May. And then I threw the rest of my rubies into cards, because that GG set is too strong, got 3 of them for Sol, Ram, Ino.

I have one leftover Signature memory that Baiken can't use right now, plus another one is coming in that delayed box in a few days, I'm not sure yet if I'll use it for SS Kula, Nyotengu, Baiken, who are all unfinished but pretty close, or maybe to push up Athena or whoever is coming next. I want to try Athena because I need more starlight damage, Kyo can't solo that one Geese raid hard mode without an extra Tekken set, I'll try Ram next week / after I +10 her stones.

For the stone crafting, I tried to get a few tier IV chests but only got one gold stone that I can't even use because fuck those RNG (50% odds for gold stone my ass), and I decided I had better odds just rolling 4 times more tier I chests. I managed to get a few silver stones that I actually need - and still a whole bunch of useless shit.

Personally I had a much easier time with this than usual.

Watch out with the GG exchange shop, this time around the shop will close in a few hours at the same time as the event for some fucking reason, they're not letting us make use of the daily hammers ! They even removed the Baiken raid way early so fuck those 150 Sol coins if you didn't do it early enough today.

Thank goodness this next Event requires no Rubies to be spent for SS Chizuru(Until they pull that bullshit to get her to A3...) so I can actually stock up.
Wait what ? Is there some info already on that ? edit - ah, found it.

Christmas event with Chizuru craft event.
https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/13/57745 Log in every day to get coins to craft Chizuru.

I pretty much focused on Dizzy since she's my GG Main the most and she's utterly ridiculous for PvE by a massive level(though to be fair, all of them are ridiculous in PvE, even Baiken or Sol whose more tailored to PvP content) but yeah, I didn't get super lucky as I did getting another GG set though. Good news for me I got the Kula FES set which is good for either May, Dizzy or Sol(especially Dizzy) so someone else can have the GG Set in the meantime.
All of their Finishers is absurd in Immortals(Especially since Rahk is my biggest stumbling block) and combined with their power, it will be no problem taking it with them even on Disadvantage.
Almost done with I-No on getting her Stones to +10 and after that, I'll focus on Baiken since she's the other main star of the banner by leagues.

It's safe to say that the Xrd collab has been very generous and made me more active on this collab so much so that I spent on tokens and the Black Friday Weekly Ruby package which is the only package that is worth buying.  Even Sol was simple to get to A3 by doing dailies.

My luck didn't held up well unlike Boss Goenitz/Leona and the DoA6 collab but A3 Dizzy with GG FES Set cards is more than enough even in Deimos Base.  But one of the Imprint Stone boxes gave me a special Moon stone with Att+ to Purple Defense class with Bleed DoT bonus, which sadly is meant for Becky Lynch of all people as she checks all those boxes but BS Leona could use that extra 10% boost despite having Burn DoT.

Recently the game has hit a milestone of 20 million downloads and to celebrate the occasion, there will be a banner rerun for BS units.  Igniz, O.Zero, Krizalid, and Nightmare Geese will now be under one banner instead of 2 separate ones as well as each of their own 3PG Special cards and Vol.2 and Vol.3 Set cards, all under their own banner and MERCIFULLY the Special Cards do not get the 3 effect split thing that Netmarble recently discovered.  Keep in mind this doesn't reward their own Imprint Stones unlike before.

Additionally all the selected units are given some tweaks to their cores to catch up with the current meta.

BS Igniz
~Skill 2's effect when Igniz hits the opponent and disables Strike Skills is now extended from 4 seconds to 5 seconds.
~Skill 3's effect when Igniz hits the opponent and lower's their Power Gauge is now changed from 10% to 20%.
~Ruler of Darkness Core now gains a new effect.  If you have a NESTS unit as Igniz's striker, his Active Skill Damage is increased by 50%

BS O.Zero
~Edge of Death Core now gains a new effect.  If you have a NESTS unit as O.Zero's striker, his Active Skill Damage is increased by 50%.  Pretty much the same as BS Igniz.

BS Krizalid
~Skill 1 Penetration effect has increased from 1000 to 1500.
~Cutting Edge Core has its damage buffed from 80% to 120% and extends the duration of the opponent unable to use Active Skills on hit from 3 seconds to 5 seconds.
~Owner of Point 70599 Core now gains a new effect similar to what BS Leona and Dizzy have and might be a game changer for him.  If the opponent is inflicted with Starlight/Darkness, every Active Skill cooldown is reduced by 0.5 seconds upon hit.

Nightmare Geese
~Skill 1 now gains a new effect.  Damage done to the opponent after hit is now increase by 25% for 7 seconds.
~Leader of the Howard Connection's Core's damage effect when the opponent is inflicted with Lightning/Darkness is increase from 50% to 100%.
~South Town’s Nightmare Core's effect when Jaeiken connect, Blast Active Skill’s cooldown resets from 50% to a 70% chance with its Core cooldown from 20 seconds to 10 seconds.

And apparently for some reason, Lady characters are now being renamed to "Pretty".  Thanks Ms. Big.

There will also be 7k Rubies for this event as well as a Carnival that rewards a 6* Set card Selector.

I thought they said Orochi would be first in line with someone else I forgot. But either way, Nameless and Ash were bare bone upgrades, and these aren't half bad, but I don't see how anything like that will make Orochi relevant again, they'll have to turn it up a couple more notches for that, like whole extra elements and mobility / canceling and seal stuff (the reset core will be the first buff obviously).

Orochi and Omega Rugal cause the idea of them losing to FES+ Yuri of all people is too much, says the community.

Get hyped for Legendary Rare Orochi (apologies in advance if this really happens).
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on December 20, 2021, 08:35:52 PM
BS Rugal revamp, I don't really know. He's managing OK for me at 135k CP with gold moon and star stones (he's my best blue, next are Igniz and Ryo further down the line), but the thing that annoys me the most about him is the God Press, it's slow, it misses easily, the "failed to grab" version is just stupidly slow... I can't fucking stand it and I don't see what could save it. His Kaiser Wave is also slow but it's decent enough.
I just want a 02 BS Rugal (Omega or not) with Destructor Bead (that kick combo) instead of that stupid grab. It'll give them an opportunity to give out that Reppuuken EX 6* special they've been holding back for years if they make that a regular Rugal and not Omega. (as long as they make it a 3PG and not a 5PG like OChris' Orochinagi for some fucking reason...)

For Orochi, I just don't see how they can pull off a third version of the exact same 3 moves. Maybe if they make him Mizuchi instead. But in his case I'd rather get a revamp.

edit - New shot at the "New world order" card for BS units is great for their CP.

edit again... Anyone knows what the fuck the snowball globe does ? The thing you can craft with the Rudolph / snowman / elf cookies. I don't really care for the selector for Eli / Goro / Jenet that it comes with, so I don't want to waste the 500 Rudolph cookies for a dumb trophy.
Also there's a coupon code for another token : KOFFST. I haven't seen the link for the iOS version though.

The snowball thing is a glorified badge for the time being unless it somehow reverts itself into a x10 token for the next Boss Syndrome banner, which is unlikely.

There are a few ways they can make a third FES with the same moves.  Modify the cores such as giving him armor break on everything, immunity to every DoT, speed increase, Ukei as a regular move while turning Oomira into his Super, and finally, giving him a brand new 3PG Special akin to how Phantom Igniz received one.

BS Nameless (green defense) and Dark Ash (yellow attack), and a Nameless card set. And yes, their battle cards have the 3 types thing. Also a cheer event, rush dungeon, challenge dungeon.

I dunno why they insist on giving Ash this long name instead of just calling him "Dark Ash" or "Evil Ash".  I get that is his official form name but it's gonna look silly in game.

At least now there is a reliable BS Yellow class.

Looks like their Imprint Stone gain is gonna follow how the Xrd collab happened.  Also if you are able to get one of them, you can use them in a special tower for more goodies.

BS Leona also officially had a long name in her reveal, but she still appears as "Leona" and "Leona Heidern" everywhere in game. I think all the Orochi people also had a long form name, but they're just Orochi xyz in game. Ash will be just Ash Crimson.
Oh scratch that... I was sure she was revealed with a long name but the video has the the short name (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qg6z9fOXjmM). And Ash does have the long form on his in-game portrait (https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/5/58321). Weird.

At least now there is a reliable BS Yellow class.
A BS yellow, and also a BS green defense, for those who can't be bothered to fund hammers into Alice, Ash, Iori, and swimsuit Kasumi for Hell level 52.
For yellow, Kyo and King are doing well for me, even if they can't hit 130k without a gold moon or star stone. I do find that King is more effective in the darkness Raid challenges than Kyo is in the burn or starlight Raid challenges at equivalent CP (probably because Kyo's starlight is on a super that you can't spam as much...)

And they are indeed going through with it if the maintenance notice has any indication.  Joy.

Also, the cheer event has you pick a team and must grind points in order to give morale for your selection.  For this go-round, it is Team Nakolulu (I am not kidding.  This is what they have listed) vs Team Hotaru.  Since Hotaru hasn't been relevant for decades, immediately fork all savings to Nako and revel in goodies that come after.

Post by: Kirishima on January 13, 2022, 04:54:05 AM
New patch is out following the conclusion to the Cheer Event where Team Hotaru won 15 Gold Hammers and both teams won the same number of rubies.

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/4/58808

Said patch includes the long awaited buffs to Mukai and Saiki XIII.

Mukai receives the following:

~S1 Touha now delivers Darkness DoT so Mukai finally has more to his kit than Petrify.  This is in addition to the buff in attack from 20% to 30% and also lowers the opponent's Power Gauge by 2%.
~S2 Tenshou EX can now be used even when Muaki is getting hit.
~S3 Shikai Petrifies even if the opponent guards the attack for 2 seconds with a 70% to reset the skill cooltime.
~Unique Combat Style core's Active Skill Damage is increased from 17% to 30% and decreases damage from 10% to 50% whenever his health is at half.
~Battle Instinct not only Petrifies for 2 seconds upon hit, but now if the opponent is Petrified, all skills now do an additional 150% damage.

Saiki XIII receives the following:

~S1 Kiyoku no Tsuki EX now extends the Blackout Darkness DoT from 6 seconds to 8 seconds.
~S2 Hanetsurube no Nata can be used even when Saiki is being hit.
~S3 Kyoryu no Ori Combo upon damage to the opponent with the Darkness DoT now lessens their Power Gauge by 1.8% and further increases Saiki's Power Gauge to 1.8%.  It also further boosts Saiki's attack by 28% for 7 seconds.
~Ruler of Time Core now activates whenever any skill connects instead of via Critical Hit.  S1 now inflicts Fear for 2 seconds and further raises damage done to the opponent with Darkness DoT by 25% for 7 seconds.
~Crystal of Evil Core decreases damage done to Saiki by 50% and is now given Hyper Armor whenever it gets inflicted with Burn, Bleed, Darkness, and Starlight with an 8 second cooldown.


To promote these changes, new packages have been launched that can only be bought via rubies.  Among these packages is the return of the exclusive Moon Imprint Stone for any unit with the Nationality Unknown tag in their profile.  And it just came to me that Nameless, both regular and BS, does not carry this tag despite a huge number of NESTS class having it, so what gives?

Because his nationality IS known.
His hometown is listed as NESTS Mars Station(Deimos).

I refuse to believe we will be getting Red Saiki before Magaki.  At best, if those two are gonna be the next to be in BS class, we may be getting an altered version of Human Saiki ramped up to 11.

But if that's the case, it also means Red Saiki may be reserved for the inevitable Legendary Rare class at some point.

Then there is also SS Terry/Ryo that were datamined not too long again.

So I recently hopped back into the game to check out Dark Ash and Nameless

Got both.


At level 90 they were blasting through 50k CP missions that required A3+ to do reliably. AND THEY WERENT EVEN AWAKENED.


Having Fear on hand at all times makes these two absolutely busted to the point where NM accidentally exploited themselves by giving them their ridiculous kit. I have them at A1 rn and they were now doing 70k CP missions like it was nothing. Skill 3 on Nameless and Skills 1 and 2 on Ash essentially break PvE with their ridiculous fear giving cores.


Hell I was able to do Two Souls with them at A1, got Blood Goenitz for the first time, and finish the ridiculous EQ EP 2 missions with just the two of them carrying, like that stupid one that requires you use Maxima 99 against BS Maxima.

The release of SS Terry and Blue Mary will come with copy/pasted dungeons just like how it was done for Dark Ash and BS Nameless.  Rush Dungeon, their own towers, their own Time Attack stage, etc.

We are also getting a new Guild Raid boss featuring a "thing", buffs to '03 Adelheid and XIV Rock Howard that also comes with Moon Imprint Stones for Boss and Fatal Fury units via paid rubies, repeat of the Kyokugen 6* Set Cards from the previous Halloween event, and a login bonus for a chance to earn more SS units and their own cards too.

In addition, the new relay even greatly enhances Valentine units and once again, if you have SS Kula's 3PG, it helps immensely.  Valentine Kasumi is useful as a leader to increase Power Charge for Idol Kula.  Maxed out Idol Kula is really needed and don't need to invest too much for the rest

For dealing 30M damage? If you had your account for some time, you can do that easily. The good part about the past two collabs is that they've been waifu only and can easily meet the quota. And there's still BS Leona, SS King, SS Yuri, SS Chizuru and SS Mary for those that got them. A new account will need to get and power up Idol Kula as well the other valentines asap, but veteran accounts can just pick their best girls and auto it.

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/60/59586

Diary notes on what to expect for 2022.

Deimos Base was a bust despite its initial hype and are looking into on how to make it more appealing.

New feature called "Dispatch" allows you to send your units to parts unknown to find rewards to collect.  Unsure if they can still be used in the main game but likely not.

Another new mode is "Dream Match", a unique PvP mode which allows you to use virtually any fighter available.  I imagine it would be like Novice Time Attack which rotates units from collabs to FES+ so anybody can use at a given period.

Omega Rugal and BS Orochi will be the first to receive a new feature called "Change-up" that not only buffs their existing skills, but gives them a whole new set of kit to unlock.  I imagine this will be their new gig to pass onto the rest of FES+ units that can't compete with the newer ones or for old collabs like WWE's own FES.  Worth pointing out that a full Changed unit can get up to Lv. A70.

ALLSTAR Archive is a new feature that gives buffs to characters who are not lucky to have FES class and will grant bonuses for tackling dungeons.  Guess this makes up the whole "no more purple borders as long as FES+ are still a thing" shtick.

Finally, KOFXV units are inbound.  Get hyped for $300 EX BS Khronen.

I only saw 6 slots in a screencap with the first 3 going to Ryu and the 2 Chuns. Claw's the most bizarre choice here IMO because I strangely anticipated Luke because of the way they're pushing him.

Post by: Kirishima on February 17, 2022, 03:53:16 PM
The one time the name is really stressing me out but I feel like it may actually be Claw as Akuma's HTML is listed as "Akuma" instead of Gouki. 

I guess they needed more Bleed DoT units and Claw sorta makes sense but weird they are skipping out on Dictator ,and Ken for that matter, and reserving them when the repeat happens at some point.

Luke is the most surprising but with the next entry right around the corner, I can see why Capcom is promoting him in every SFV collab.  Maybe this is why they waited until now for the most requested collab to even happen.

Only for certain Novice Time Attack (and possibly the new Dream Match PVP) you are given a select few to use until they rotate.  As for owning them, gotta wait until they renegotiate contracts as they are all gone for now.  No telling when they will be back.

I'm surprised they're going to skip on the 76th boss with Darkness element just like that
The 75th is, of course, Akuma

Apparently the Korean version says Vega / Vison ? Is that right ? That doesn't seem right...

scratch that, the Chinese version says 巴洛克 which is Balrog / Claw.

Ryu vs John Cena before Fortnite let's go

Alpha Chun-Li confirmed, likely free.

The rest are hinted via HTML to be Akuma, Dictator or Claw, and of all things, Luke.  Ken is getting the Escanor treatment.


https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/60/59586

Diary notes on what to expect for 2022.

Deimos Base was a bust despite its initial hype and are looking into on how to make it more appealing.

New feature called "Dispatch" allows you to send your units to parts unknown to find rewards to collect.  Unsure if they can still be used in the main game but likely not.

Another new mode is "Dream Match", a unique PvP mode which allows you to use virtually any fighter available.  I imagine it would be like Novice Time Attack which rotates units from collabs to FES+ so anybody can use at a given period.

Omega Rugal and BS Orochi will be the first to receive a new feature called "Change-up" that not only buffs their existing skills, but gives them a whole new set of kit to unlock.  I imagine this will be their new gig to pass onto the rest of FES+ units that can't compete with the newer ones or for old collabs like WWE's own FES.  Worth pointing out that a full Changed unit can get up to Lv. A70.

ALLSTAR Archive is a new feature that gives buffs to characters who are not lucky to have FES class and will grant bonuses for tackling dungeons.  Guess this makes up the whole "no more purple borders as long as FES+ are still a thing" shtick.

Finally, KOFXV units are inbound.  Get hyped for $300 EX BS Khronen.

Eeewwww, why Luke?
What about Chun-Li, Ken, Dhalsim, Zangief, or any other iconic SF character?
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on February 17, 2022, 08:12:43 PM
Chuns is there, one SS and one likely free with memories via banner.

Luke is there because we must be reminded constantly that he now matters in the current lore and Capcom will hammer this concept over and over again if needed. 

Everyone else is likely being reserved for a future repeat, if ever.

BS Orochi and Omega Rugal are getting rerun banners and included in this update is the new EX-forms where only certain units will receive.  Aside from the selected BS units, '98 Omega Rugal and '97 Orochi will also benefit from this.

After you EX a unit, they will unlock new kits and their core boards will expand.  Tenacity is one of the newer ones that grants invincibility and 10% HP regain and Metamorph grants immunity to Status DoT, which is very useful whenever Deimos Base returns.

The new Dispatch feature allows you to send selected units based on themes and Awakening class.  If you send an EX unit, they will return with Prime Memory shards used for EX Awakening so it's worth EXing the FES units.

Several Dungeons now have new difficulties and floor expansions for your newly acquired 100k CP units.  These modes now encourage you to get your FES+ units to A3 to even get through them.

Finally, for those coming back to this game for the SFV collab, some useful links to get started,

Since tonight's update is the Orochi / Rugal update, it looks like it'll be in 3 weeks ?
The collab site says the preregistration for the colab event begins on March 15 so it might be even later. I remember the Tekken collab was announced a LONG time in advance in Korea, like, months, something like a summer reveal for a November release. But that was the very first one.

Edit

March 24.
Old Ryu looking mad at kid Kyo. Ugh.

edit again
Urgh, Netmarble found a way to break something that worked before, again. Earlier today I couldn't start the boss syndrome tower because it told me I didn't have Rugal and Orochi, and just now that I got the last memory I need for Orochi, it's just not doing the 5* awakening after I select the memories. Come on, Netmarble, stop breaking existing simple things with each big update.

I take this back because they STILL need BS memories to even unlock simple stuff for regular FES units.  Why can't they use their own Memories instead of waiting for a limited banner with poor rates is baffling.

Because got to feed those whales.

Seriously, the Change up system was clearly designed for whales. And they kept it vague enough to make it seem like Change up is gonna be really good, but it really isn't..... it's just fine. I mean, there's some nice perks it gives, but nothing like recent FES+ units. Most it does is give Awakening level 6-7.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on March 01, 2022, 09:36:19 PM
Yeah, and in the end we're not getting the Orochi / Rugal update that everybody was expecting. They seriously couldn't find anything better to do than "eh, just raise the stats I guess".
Wait... Did they get updated ? I can't find anything on the forum about it, but I see Orochi with more Starlight and "cooldown when attacked by a target affected by starlight", and I think Rugal has Bleed on a different skill than before ? And they both have a "can use while getting hit" skill.
Fucking what red Rugal is also updated with Darkness on his God Press (but that's a grab skill so obviously fuck that), and Gravity Smash gets darkness DOT burst (the high 5.5x one) ?? But you need BS Rugal memories to get the change up for FES Rugal so fuck that, what the hell. Also that's our first red darkness unit.
97 Orochi gets burn, starlight, and starlight dot burst, also 5.5.
The FES versions got a much more important buff than the BS versions, weird. But at least BS Orochi should be pretty decent now with his starlight, cooldown reduction, and "can use when getting hit". BS Rugal is basically unchanged I think, just one more bleed skill ?

(also the bug on awakening I was getting on Orochi is fixed by un-liking the memories so that's nice but once again, they introduced a bug on something that worked before for no reason)

Oh, weird, couldn't find it in the search.

Post by: Kirishima on March 05, 2022, 10:56:31 PM
Only those that are listed for Rush Dungeons to get an increase in drops but it's minuscule at best and you would rather spend resources on FES stuff.

There are literally no useful Golds for Deimos Base.  Netmarble heavily nerfed Athena '98's Healing effect for this mode.

If you want to try Gold in other modes like Epic Quest and Relay Dungeon where Cost is a factor, then Iori '98, Kyo '98, Wonderland Athena, Wonderland Yuri, Lady Yashiro, Summer Chizuru, Halloween Kula, False Orochi is you are up for the Epic Quest Memory Grind, Chizuru '97, Mecha Goenitz also in Epic Quest, Vanessa '00, and Athena '98.

Also worth pointing out that 3PG Special Cards for FES+ can also work with Golds so even something like K' '99 can benefit from his SS 3PG card if you don't have SS K' onboard.

The best Golds are collabs that are never getting re-released.

They also have a FES version that could use a new round of upgrade, just like Orochi and Rugal. I wish Iori XIII was usable again... ;_; I loved his bleed damage but he fell off a cliff with the focus on pure CP score, and he could be super strong with the kind of upgrades we saw just now.  (of course, a 6* 3PG with a better animation would be more than enough) And third time's the charm for Kyo XIII ? They tried working him on several angles but he's not quite where they tried to put him.
(my first pick would be King though, love her and that Tornado Kick, I just don't get why they gave her darkness damage out of nowhere)

Chun-li is free but it will be her SF2 attire so good chance it'll be like Honoka in which you'll get another free SS Unit.

Dev video that briefly highlights the details of this collab and how hands-on Capcom was involved in this.

First was a preview for the new Dream Match feature which includes ALL units including previous collabs since 2018 and current FES/FES+ units to be used in a separate mode.  In an attempt to bring balance, a majority of cores have been heavily toned down.  Cards will not be used but all units will have access to their 3PG/5PG Supers.  This feature will only be active until 4/18.

Next they review how the collab was formed and how we waited for over 20 years for Capcom/SNK to reunite.  To no one's surprise, Luke was heavily demanded by Capcom due to SF6 as well as Chun-Li being the sole female of the roster.  More dungeons have been confirmed that will be reviewed in a bit below.



Luke trailer.  Don't be surprised if he is SS tier.
:oops:

https://forum.netmarble.com/kofg_en/view/5/61795

Well colored me surprised because Luke is the ONLY SS class out of the rest with both Chun-Li being at their default SFV class.  Not that it's bad thing as you can use dimensional invites to boost them up.  Ryu however, despite being SFV class, receives the coveted Change Up feature that was for BS Omega Rugal and Orochi.  In other words, after you use Dimensional Invites or memories to get him to A5, you must then burn 3 more memories to further unlock his potential and get up to A7.

Ryu is Yellow Attack, Luke is Yellow Balance, and Alpha Chun-Li is Green Defense with SF2 Chun-Li as Blue Balance and will be given for free.

Week 1 banner will have Ryu, Luke, and Alpha Chun-Li while their card banners get a boost up for their 3PGs.  FES Akuma Set Cards will be gained via banner as Summer Chun-Li Set Cards available via Rush Dungeon rewards.  I like how one of their new Option Cards is titled "The Long Awaited Reunion".  Very nice.

Much like Marie Rose, SS Chizuru, and Sol Badguy, there will also be a coin feature being doing a variety of events in order to gain unique Option Cards.  These cards have renders from SFV as an interesting change of pace.


EDIT:

https://youtu.be/DAMJbxostqE?t=1684

Recent Korean livestream demonstrated these units and revealed the rest.

Akuma is also SFV class as Purple Attack and for some warped reason, M.Bison is SS and NOT BS, you know the boss of SFV is apparently a good guy.  He is Red Defense.  The DoT effects for the whole cast are as follows.

Ryu = Shock
Akuma = Burn
M.Bison = Darkness & Poison
Chun Li = Chill what
Luke = Starlight & Stun
Alpha Chun Li = Chill & Poison again what

Other than Ryu, SFV Chun-Li and Akuma will also receive the Change Up feature at least according to the livestream.

We know it's not restricted to SS and BS units since 98 Rugal and 97 Orochi could get it (at the cost of BS Rugal and BS Orochi memories obviously, can't be too easy) so it'll just be whoever they want at the time and don't try to overthink it. But yeah, the big up from this is that dimensional invites are much easier to get these days than SS/BS memories (especially for collab units).

Hi everyone.
I've been playing this game and following this thread, and I finally decided to make an account.

Regarding the SFV collab, I want to add that Ryu, Chun Li, and Akuma appear to be the game's first cost 70 characters.
SS/BS are cost 65, so Luke and M.Bison are essentially lower tier. And Alpha Chun Li is regular FES at cost 63.

I hope dimensions invitations can still be used on the cost 70 characters, but I would not be too surprised if Netmarble switches things up so DI cannot be used.

Welcome to the club!

Thank you  ;D

BTW Dream Match looks to be really fun and it's great if all fighters can be used without having acquired them.

Welcome!

Yea, the benefit of Dream Match is accessing every available unit from the spot withiut having to invest resources or worry about infinite combos, cores, etc.  It's like a glorified Mugen sandbox now.

I feel like the main reasons why they waited until now is that the SFV collab will bring in the highest volume of players and what better way to catch up to speed than free demos of everything that was once launched.  But also, collabs like WWE are most likely never to return and can't let those models go to waste.  I believe Tekken will gain higher usage not because of meta, but because it's Tekken and the usage will hopefully convince Netmarble to renegotiate with Bamco to rerun that collab.

Also forgot to mention.  The results of the SS/BS Change Up votes has concluded and SS Kyo and BS Leona ended up the highest demand of ALL 3 regions of JPN, KOR, and Global.  SS Kyo will also be craftable starting at the launch of the SFV collab so concentrate on that one.

I want to add that Ryu, Chun Li, and Akuma appear to be the game's first cost 70 characters.
I dread this day would come.  Hope DIs can still be used so all you would need are like 4 pulls max including the initial unit.  That way you only burn the invites and used the extra 3 memories to unlock.

I just pulled them and the good news is Ryu does not need memories to use EX. The cost 70 basically means he is already EX. I got him to A5 and to get to A6, I need to use the Dispatch mode to collect shards for the prime memory.

The bad news is there is no DI for Ryu. So, that A5 was full on -54K Rubies.

Quick note.  If you got Alpha Chun-Li, DON'T use any memories to level her up and instead use Dimensional Invites. Save up any dupe memories of that to redeem for either Luke's or Dictator's memory that are worth more.

Also you can redeem a free 3PG Super for Chun-Li when you redeem daily coins.  Said coins through out the event can be redeemed for up to 4 Chuns enough to reach A3 for free.

So, Dream Match is by far the best thing they added in the update. It actually made PvP, well, *fun*

Not only did they balance every single character to stand a chance against eachother, they also made sure to make even SILVER characters viable. The meta relies way more on actual skill and timing now than just pressing buttons and hoping things work out. They added little things too like rematches, being able to back out of fights if you don't feel like fighting against characters like Dizzy (who is actually beatable by previously low tier characters its crazy) and all that.


AND theres no timer to play AND every single collab is able to be used regardless if you bought them or not. I seriously hope that this mode stays for good as it is the most fun I have had playing this game.

Until now, the purple letters were used to further awaken collab FES units even after their event ends.  You could even use these for Xrd characters but not for SS units.

Lately with the introduction of Red EX units, these purple letters can't be used for that class. This only applies to Ryu, Chun-Li, and Akuma because instead of being FES+, there now have a red border.  Luke and Dictator are SS class so DIs don't apply as well.

The only SFV collab the purple letters can still be used is with Alpha Chun-Li, which is extremely recommended to save any memories you get for her so you can redeem a free SS memory for Luke or Dictator.  Instead use the DIs to level her up.

If anything, Netmarble is likely slowly phasing out the utility of DIs in favor for the new Change Up system and how they will push blank SS memories more often.

Enjoy it while it lasts because after the SFV collab ends, it'll be gone probably until the game's 4th anniversary in the summer for it to launch again lol

It is definitely my favorite thing in the whole game. I'm more hyped to play that then any other mode.

I made a video that has dream match highlights, I'll add it but I'm a bit wary since it can seem like promoting, and that's not my intent.


The dream match part starts at 4 minutes 40 seconds.

Enjoy it while it lasts because after the SFV collab ends, it'll be gone probably until the game's 4th anniversary in the summer for it to launch again lol

I hope they don't drop the ball on this and keep it free for all. Dream Match can bring tons of new and old players to the game. And it actually makes me even more hyped for any future collab.

Rollback is added but on mobile it is still choppy even if you set the location filter.

Really should have came here and added my two cents about this collaboration Event:

I'm honestly... in a mixed place about it(Not as I am mixed over Strive Testament... sorry, back to topic).
On one hand, the Event isn't honestly all that bad and it seems Dream Match is a blast(though I sadly don't PvP though so I won't be making any real use of it), the story mode is okay and the characters are pretty fun to play.

On the other hand, the EX Chun-Li, Ryu and Akuma... don't really fill me with the best confidence(As Ryu and Akuma has such ABYSMAL Drop Rates and EX Chun will require Sol-Tier levels of dedication to even get her to a decent level before the event is done and that's IF you are able to finish off both Towers too)
The Change-Up system definitely has me feeling even more weird about it considering to even get your fighters to a decent level you HAVE to fully Awaken them.
They went full stupid with both Towers as you basically need to have damn strong SF Units to even be able to defeat the highest floors rather than it being 70K like the last few Towers.

Like it's hard for me to really say if this is better than the Guilty Gear and Dead or Alive Collaboration or if it's worse than them due to this.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kirishima on March 29, 2022, 06:08:24 AM
I feel as tho this ranks slightly below the other two recent collabs (Xrd had like 2 weeks of activities and nothing more).  The downside is that the change-up system is slowly making Dimensional Invites obsolete within the next couple of months.  At the very least, the other collabs with their towers can be done with a non SS unit and if you have DIs to spare.

Here?  You only get one free EX unit of Chun-Li for one tower and by doing weeks worth of dailies, you'll have a fully A3 Chun-Li which you can add stones and FES cards to get her to a suitable level to conquer the tower, but by then you will have little days left of the collab.    Sadly you gotta spend to get Alpha Chun-Li as she is the only one that can use DIs to conquer the other tower and also getting several FES fodder to grind memories for DIs is a different story.

Notice how I am not suggesting using Alpha Chun-Li's memories as now they added a section to use  those memories to gain one of Luke's and Dictator's own.  Not liking how that goes.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Xhominid on March 29, 2022, 06:37:15 AM
Yeah, I used DI's to basically force the Alpha Chun to Awakening 5 just to get it over with but unfortunately, that was AFTER I used the Change Up on A1 Luke so now Alpha Chun has no major boost until well AFTER the Event.
I did get the EX Ryu but I have to look into how the hell he works and if I need to roll the gacha for more copies or not.
And there's also the Super Cards and everything else too...

So it's definitely not high up there for me.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: ETSRL on April 01, 2022, 04:28:29 AM
Here is my story and view on all this:

There is a small chance to get the memories from combining so in between collabs, I save up memories, and only combine them during the event. I had like 130 Purple Gold memories that I combined hoping to get lucky with an Akuma Memory. Out of those 130, I got 1 Nameless and 1 Lady Kim. The rest were regular Fest Memories. I had fewer Red, Yellow, and Blue memories but none of them gave anything worthwhile. 

The other thing I did was spend about 25K AP and a lot of auto-clear tickets on the card dungeon hoping to get a Collab FES card. How many did I get? You guessed it, 0! I was lucky on a previous banner and thought it could be a regular thing. But Nope...I found out first hand it's definitely EXtremely rare to get memories or cards that way.

I did get the EX Ryu but I have to look into how the hell he works and if I need to roll the gacha for more copies or not.

Unfortunately, you have to. Unless Netmarble comes out with a new blank "EX" memory...even if it's 7 FES for 1 EX, just something would be nice. But it's unlikely, since this new tier is probably a business attempt to increase sales. They want players to pull thinking "this is the only chance you will ever get to memories for Ryu, Chun, and Akuma. And this is the only way to increase their awakening to A5." Also the Change up system widens the gap between A3 and A5. It's a more appealing incentive to go for A5 because you'll be able to eventually get them to A7. It makes the end result a much more noticeable gap in power.

The game sometimes feels like "The King of Overpowered." Whatever your strongest unit is, it will not be too long until a new stronger unit is available. That's partly why I do not focus on high scores. They're just numbers, and it's always possible for the devs to make someone do a bit more damage than the last. But I hope keeping things fun remains Netmarble's priority. M. Bison/Vega/Dictator is the most fun for me. Oh, and for the tower challenge...It would be worthwhile to have a high CP set on standby that is max transcended just to pass the CP requirements. I heard the Tekken Set Cards are excellent for CP, but I do not have them since I was not playing back then. The Iori in Wonderland set cards are a great alternative, and the Holiday Kasumi option card is also a CP monster. BTW, if transcending cards for a CP boost is your goal then matching Critical Rate adds the most CP.

Although my dreams of Vice and Juri in the same team got squashed, I'm enjoying this Collab. We're getting a lot of good things but the business side of this is very obvious. A5 is changing from "it's fancy" to "it's your unit's full potential."
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Darkflare on April 01, 2022, 05:53:31 AM
Here's my thoughts.

The SFV collab is a continuation of the slippery slope this game has been on for a while now.

Of all the new characters, only Alpha Chun can be raised with DIs and you want to use them anyway because her memories can be traded for a Luke or a Bison memory who are both SS characters(Missed opportunity to make Bison a BS). And then we have Ryu, Akuma and normal Chun as the new EX rarity and you know this is going to be a thing going forward. Expect EX Duo lon and EX Shen Woo to arrive for the opening of Tales of Ash saga story mode. And of course this will keep going with EX Magaki and EX Red Saiki who will both also be BS because of course.

Yeah, I'm not really a fan of this like Darkflare himself also stated which kinda bums me out since it's obvious that outside of Dream Match, the game is a bit too much on going for power creep and power creep rather than making units actually viable.

While I have A1 Ryu and now A1 Chun, I am seriously not happy over how ridiculous lengths they are making you have to go to get them to A3 and it doesn't bode well when they keep stacking the deck like this again and again.
It's like Brave Exvius except even worse than Neovisions making 7*'s and below worthless.

As someone that poured double the amount of APs thanks to months worth of Potion refreshers, I too ended up with none of the collab cards.  In facts I pulled more of Chris' 3PG cards than the collabs, lol.  This was during the dice event but still, it stings man  :mwhy:

Quote

I feel like this whole madness seems to benefit the Championship PvP IMO where these busted units thrive in.  Otherwise, A3 sets are more than enough to carry you on modes like towers, Guild Bosses, and AI league battles.  I am not gonna reach Rank 70 at Chapter of Fight anytime soon nor am I ever as Rank 65 is enough for me to farm crystals and Gold Moon/Star boxes.

I am still running stuff like SS Iori, SS '13 Athena, and the like even though the power creep favors newer stuff, but these units can still pull their weight as I invested for them at the time.

But I do agree that the new EX practice is gonna eventually reach absurd amount of Combat Power to the point where we will get future modes favoriting 200k CP all for a memory selector, ick.

Quote
Expect EX Duo lon and EX Shen Woo to arrive for the opening of Tales of Ash saga story mode.
While it's inevitable that they will reach EX status, I have doubts they are gonna pull numbers compared to protags, bosses, and collabs.

Reminds me of a time where Netmarble once made a bundle pass that grants you a full maxed out A5 Lin with Poison Imprint Stones, but I have never ran into anyone in League running that set as his kit was mediocre and was quickly outclassed by FES+ stuff.

If anything, we may get a future unit pool expansion featuring Ash Saga characters so even F2P players can get a taste of EX units.  Roid Ralf when?

And yea, this whole practice is tailor made for a future A7 Red Saiki hell.

Well....Chun-li can still reach A3 for free by doing dailies.  Baffled to why Ryu isn't getting this treatment like Sol Badguy during the Xrd collab but oh well.

What I don't like about these coin grinds is that they are also Guild dependent and if you are not a part of a Guild, then you'll lose out on my freebies.  Also, Guild leaders can kick you out for no reason and force you to wait a certain period to join again.

Honestly? I'm completely and utterly mixed on this collab.

On one hand, I think it's honestly decently done and isn't basically a pain in the ass.
On the other hand... the HP in the Towers is WAY too Hyper-Inflated on top of the absurd CP requirements(It really should be far less and back to the originals like in the past)and the EX requirements is also way too fucking steep and needs to be slapped down hard(You might as well not even bother in some cases.)

Atleast she got decent buffs and has a free Change Up too... just sucks I can't get her to A4 atleast without losing access to it.

Okay, scratch that, seems like I was actually mistaken.

They actually UPPED the amount of Coins you get from the dailies for the Event Missions to the Lucky Chance(Takes 100 Coins to roll it but you get 200-300 Coins per Daily Mission completed).
Meaning that you can potentially push towards A6-A7 Chizuru if you are really lucky even counting for the Change Up. Nice change right there in not screwing over players for easy cash.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Byakko on April 19, 2022, 09:20:57 AM
Yeah you can get 10 memories with coins now, on top of the character, and the event coins are coming up really fast. It's actually very generous, more than it was the first time, especially if you already have her at a good level, you'll be drowning in the other lucky rewards. Too bad we're not getting a rerun of the Chizuru set cards.

New banner on startup teases an EX Kyo. But apparenty it's XV Kyo ?? (Biker jacket) so signature Kyo is getting shafted lol.
Apparently there's also an EX summon banner planned ? SS and BS are dead already and you'll get 3 weeks to pile up 11 copies of him, because 8 is not enough.

Post by: Darkflare on April 19, 2022, 10:46:06 AM
Shop is just for whales to insta buy him and all his upgrades. It's the same for every Collab, SS and BS banner.

EX Kyo(and EX Iori which comes after)banner just shows that SS/BS is going to be phased out and new units will be EX until they think of the next grade. Thing is, the power creep is pointless because as of right now, you can already do everything by maxing out anything from around GG Collab and after. Argument can be made that the powercreep is mostly for PvP except Dream Match is looking like it will be a more permanent status.

I think this is the point to step off from this mess for me. I'll probably come back when they start doing Tales of Ash saga in Story mode. I kinda do want to see how they tell that story.

Chapter of fight still requires you to keep increasing your CP to keep getting ore and moon / star cores which are critical for gold moon / star stones, which are still the bottleneck right now. You can only do the pink stages daily, once you hit your CP limit on the blue stages, you lose a lot of resources. I hit stage 92 and I still have a very hard time as I get shafted by stone RNG.
And it's weird that they recently started focusing on card sets that increase elemental damage, which does NOT reflect on the CP (which has always been dumb but whatever), even though everything in the game needs you to increase your CP on pain of getting your damage set to 0 because fuck you.

I'm probably just going to play it for fun now and not even try to be serious because yeah, EX came in WAY too fast to immediately dethrone SS/BS as the premier level up system and it's just as much a pain in the ass to work around.

The EX is just a push for more revenue. and I get it, they're a business. But I'm approaching that burn-out feeling with the game. The focus on high scores and farming is wearing me down. I've done it all. Level 100 Chapter of Fight and Guild Boss Challenge are not that great because the focus of it is only to farm stones to get even higher scores. I got Akuma and Ryu almost to A7...great! but that new level of high scores does nothing for me. Besides the novelty of using those units, it's just a bigger number on the screen to help me farm stuff that will help me get an even bigger number on the screen. And that's the problem, it is that final feeling of "why do I need to get such a big high score?" keeps getting stronger with each new banner. I don't regret getting them but it's definitely making me more tired with the game's content.

But...I keep getting pulled back in. I really want KOF XV Kyo. And eventually Krohnen, it would be the first official game where Nameless can go against Krohnen. And KOF XV's Iori's outfit is amazing. So I want him too, then there's Dolores, Antonov, Isla, King of Dinosaurs, and Shermie. They all got my full interest...kinda interested in Shunei, FES+ Vanessa, Benimaru, Joe, Andy, Heidern, Ralf, and Angel.

Otherwise, now, I have a much better understanding why some people quit. After the novelty of using these new units wears off, it's back to the outdated RPG trope of continuous farming and big numbers. The new units are the only thing keeping me interested in the game, once they stop, I'm probably going to quit.

That said, if they focus on Dream Match, then I'm more in than ever. The connection issues in Dream Match can be horrendous but it's great fun when it works properly. Also I do not work for NM, so I don't need to be giving them ideas. That's their job, but maybe a boss that has an attack that forcefully switches a unit for another for starters. The switched out unit cannot join back in immediately because of the cooldown. I won't design a full boss or maze for them but there's a lot more they could do.

....so is there still time for Ryo to get that coveted SS tier or are we gonna have to wait another couple of months because it is very weird to see Yuri and King get that tier before he and Robert like what

Right now I got all that I need from the SFV collab and while SS Chizuru is still good, I don't see any reason for me to invest on her as her Leadership skill is all I need.

Quote
Shop is just for whales to insta buy him and all his upgrades. It's the same for every Collab, SS and BS banner.
Except Shop offers really poor choices for items like $50 to get your A6 to around 2 levels once they are at Lv.64 and barely a blip at Lv.68 so they should be avoided at all costs.  Doesn't help that they are randomized lol.

Only worthwhile packages are the singular tokens.  Maybe the coin for boards to because at least they give you way more items.

To put into perspective in regards to the FES+ thing, it has been over a year since their inception and already we are going into the EX ladder.  I expected another level of power creep but not this soon.  I was predicting sometime after Global's 3rd Anniversary.

At this point, the only times when it is worth splurging is during collabs because at least they make an attempt to put over the collabs as bigger deals for both PvE and PvP meta.  While XV Kyo will be a heavy hitter, you guys have Sol Badguy, SS Honaka, and Chun-Li for free that can deal just as much damage.  Maybe not as fast as what XV Kyo will do but it is more than enough to carry you into specific events like Deimos Base.

And I am certain another tower is coming and I am really hoping A3 XV Kyo is enough.  Makes me wish something akin to the Tekken Set ever comes back to rocket the CP requirements high.

The new units are the only thing keeping me interested in the game, once they stop, I'm probably going to quit.
The cornerstone of the game has always been the collabs and SFV has brought a large chunk of the playerbase back to see.  I feel like the next collab will do the same (god forbid it is another Korean mobile thing arrghh) and it is that feature which keeps me motivated to stick with the game lol

While XV Kyo will be a big deal, I don't see myseld investing too much.  Rather wait for EX Krohnen in the future for that.

Also it's taking Shun'ei this long to appear already.

Now that it's over, Street Fighter collab was a little underwhelming, not going to lie.
We only had one female character (I kind of wanted Cammy, Rose or Juri) and wanted Ken in place of Luke. Also, collab power creep is here once more. Hooray.

To be fair about the powercreep, the lv 6 to 10 EXP capsules were datamined since, what, Signature Athena before we even knew she'd be a Signature character and she was a yellow balance unit ? BS and SS units ended up coming before the lv6 awakening, but we knew it was a long time coming. The only real problem is, absolutely fuck the number of memories required (but I like the dispatch system with the shard stuff, if you play with the daily free refresh).
About the collab, I don't really mind the low quality content, but I appreciate that Ryu and Akuma are really well done (design, skill and animation wise, like Ryu's ultra), and Chun Li is fine. Bison is a bit weird with that super that goes backward though. Compared to the GG collab where everyone was a monster, all of Baiken's skills are full of holes that the CPU keeps slipping through, Ram feels a bit weird, I really only like Sol and Ino's moves. The SFV units really are worthy of being your top units for their respective colors (and I can finally retire BS Igniz when I A6 Chun Li and / or get her gold moon/star stones)

The problem I have with power creep in general is that it lingers for far too long and overstays its welcome. I get that SF collab was the long awaited hidden Joker card Netmarble decided to pull after its decline in popularity, but everywhere you go, you see SF fighters dominating the scene in every mode. PVE aside, PVP is probably going to remain this way until it becomes absolutely stale or another pay2win collab gets announced out of nowhere. That being said, I think Dream Match should be a permanent mode imo with actual rewards.

I just wish we return to the old days when SamSho collab was first announced. Cool characters but not too op. Viable but not must picks... I feel like after Seven Knights, collabs are just another way of introducing a new grind mechanic, the same way they introduced "EX" fighters in SF.

Dailies take over an hour even for a Day 1 player like me so while Netmarble tried to lighten the load, they introduce dumb things like event-only Skip Tickets for Epic Quest that come once in a blue moon and still not adding Skip Tickets for Rush Dungeons and Advent Dungeons.

Then there are Guilds that is a mandatory for all players in which if you aren't part of a Guild, you lose more bonuses along the way but then the head admin can kick you out in a whim forcing you to be on a wait period :sbt:

I can say about 90% of packages all around the Shop are completely pointless, overpriced, and nonsensical.  Subsciption bundles and Battle Pass are the only ones that are worth it.  Topaz are now obsolete so no point in even getting individual ruby bundles lol

4th anniversary is approaching soon so I only hope they finally get feedback into consideration.  At least with SS Chizuru, got 2 memories from free coins so that's a good step though I am still waiting on those Imprint Stones they once claimed will return in someway.

True, but all of this is happening quickly.  Powercreep is inevitable, but we barely had over a year of exploring with FES+ and already we gotta prep for this.  They even stopped with Seasonals, Gender swaps, and Year Class like '02.

We don't even have Foxy in the roster for crying out loud!

That's basically what I plan on doing from now on. I have plenty of those SS Units at decent levels and others like I-No, soon to be May and Ramlethal is at A5 who also does real well.
But it's getting to be real burnout when they basically just exploded into EX like one year after SS/BS when for other gachas, it would take 2-3 years before any major upgrade like this.

Really goddamned hard to continue playing this seriously when there are better gacha games out there worth the time and energy outside of collabs.

As much as I hate to admit it, you're right. Gacha games (especially Korean gacha games) usually end up being the same dumpster fire of a mess when they reach a certain point. We all knew it was coming, but it still hurts me to say it since I love playing this game.

In fact, I loved this game so much that I was a guild master of the 2nd strongest guild in all of KR server, reached max level for all characters regardless of ranks and was top 20 PVP player in 2019.

Sadly, those days are long gone and even though I still turn the game on everyday and do what I can, I have a gut feeling I'll be uninstalling the game within the next two months...

Is there a non-Global server the game is trying to catch up with? Maybe the KR server? Netmarble is kind of infamous for this sort of thing though tbh. I remember reading about similar complaints with the 7DS game. There was scarcely time between banners before a massive new powercreep was introduced. Though I don't think 7DS had newer rarities released at this pace.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)
Post by: Kolossoni on April 20, 2022, 09:42:23 PM
Hahaha I wish. JP server started first, KR server caught up to that. Then global released and it caught up soon after.
All three servers are on even playing field now and that makes me even more sad come to think about it.

Netmarble, Nexon, Smilegate, all other KR mobile games turn into pure dog shit after the first year from release. That's just how things roll here.
Meaning, when a new game releases, enjoy the best first year of your life and prepare to grind 24/7 from then on or become a whale.

The upcoming banner will focus on EX Kyo and SS Iori along with new Set Cards and Option Card.  Worth pointing out that one of the new Set Card artwork has Shun'Ei featured.

During this event period, SS Iori's memories has a slim chance of appearing when combining Purple Gold Memories.  Additionally, SS Iori has been given adjustments as follows:

S1: Increases target’s damage received by 35% for 5s upon connecting with this skill.  This is a new add-on for SS Iori.
S2: [PVP Exclusive] Disables all enemies' Active Skills for 4s upon use.  This was changed from just a singular target's Active Skills and now will function regardless if this move hits or not.
S3:  Attack gain buffed from 35% to 60% with a 75% to reset cooldown up from 50%.  Also, PVP exclusive, now has a 70% to remove Armor up from 60%.
The Error of 660 Years Core: Damage Immunity adjusted so now there is a 10 seconds cooldown from 15 seconds.  Decreases target's DMG dealt by 30% for 7s and increases their DMG received by 30% for 7s upon landing an Active Skill. (Cooldown: 12s),  Also, if Kyo's in your team, SS Iori gains an additional 30% Att increase.
Strongest Rival Core: Active Skill damage to Burn/Darkness status buffed to 90% from 80%.  Decreases Active Skill Cooldown by 0.5s when attacking targets affected by Darkness.

EX Kyo will also have his own Imprint Stones up to A3.  In addition, there will be new Imprint Stones that will be usable to any Kyo, Iori, or Chizuru class including SS.  If you missed out on getting Stones for SS Iori or need some for SS Chizuru, these will come in handy and can be obtained through in-game events such as Bingo, Carnival, and the infamous tower where EX Kyo is encouraged.

There will also be a Crafting event to score an exclusive Orochi themed Option Card.

SS Iori can be used so at least everyone will clear it.
I hope the new craftable option card is good for Orochi himself.
The Battle Pass for the event has a lot of some valuable items, too (quite the value crash for those items like BS/SS memory selector...)

If what Luke's dungeon's rewards being shifted is any indication, it is possible for Netmarble to make some tweaks because GEEZ they are really encouraging Guild nonsense.

Also the Orochi crafted card isn't for Orochi after all but is for Kyo, Iori, and Chizuru which grants them an absurd amount of Combat Power.  This will come in handy if you are still struggling in the event tower and don't have A1 EX Kyo on board.

The highest tier in Orochi's dungeon heavily favors SS Iori and SS Chizuru while any Kyo with Burn aliment can work if you don't have EX Kyo.  If your unit's combined CP ain't ridiculously high, prepare to spend lots of minutes getting through with this unless you go for the low tier selection.  The rewards give crafted materials to get the Orochi Option Card but also tickets for Chapter of Fight.

I strongly recommend getting the FES EX Kyo Set Cards.  It's basically Tekken Set but for EX units and can also be used for SFV's EX units.

Tung Fu Rae is shown in the Event Story so decent chance he, Shun'ei, and Meiteikun are inbound soon.

I strongly recommend getting the FES EX Kyo Set Cards.  It's basically Tekken Set but for EX units and can also be used for SFV's EX units.

There is also the star imprint stone specifically for sacred treasures. It adds Critical Rate and CR is the best boost for CP.



I am looking forward to getting the exchange shop's set cards. I missed out on the starlight boosting set cards from 7DS. That has haunted me with Luke, Terry, and Chizuru. At least now, I can remove one name of the list. Also, I'm sure it will work great with XV Kyo.

XV Kyo is already my favorite to play as, his charge skill is extremely satisfying, and he has plenty of skill resets to keep the momentum going. But again, the business side is going to be more obvious. One of the A5 EX Core for Kyo is called Concentrate. It reduces the cooldown by 100% of his first skill for 3 seconds. I tried it and it works amazingly well. It is better and more fun than using regular awakening because it has a 15 second cooldown but it's really 12 seconds because the first 3 are used when I'm attacking. There is a cooldown overlap with awakening so you cannot use Concentrate then awakening right after, or vice versa. It adds a new layer of thought to the game but it's only for the A5 Club. Which players will see is becoming more exclusive. Because now, A5 players can enjoy the a game a bit more while A4 and below cannot. Not to mention the dispatch for A7. This is a very obvious business move that is focused on NM's pockets.

But I cannot fault them completely, Yamata Orochi is more difficult than I thought but I'm glad the focus is shifting from high scores to more meaningful content where the goal is to defeat a challenge. High scores are great for players who are trying to reach the upper limit of their unit's ability. For those players, it's great but for others, like myself, it's awful. I'm interested in clearing a challenge but high scores are a limit, not a challenge. It's like holding my breath, there is a limit to how long I can do that and I am not interested in finding out. But I am interested in holding my breath if I'm diving for treasure. For the farming, I do not expect it to go away anytime soon since that is basically the DNA of any RPG. And the majority of rewards are better than I thought. Specifically, the FES set cards are wonderful but I'm happy there is the addition of elite hammers. The stones, especially the hexagon for SS Iori/SS Kyo, and moon/star for all are worthwhile. For SS Chizuru, the R attack starlight stones are still the best.


So XV Kyo is wonderfully fun, A5 is only going to look more attractive over time, I'm happy the content is taking its first steps towards more worthwhile content, farming is improved because the rewards are enticing, and I'm looking forward to Shun'ei...and maybe Meitenkun might surprise us with a new "sleep" status that will be more OP than fear.

A recent patch got added that drastically lowers the difficulty in the Orochi dungeon even in the upper tier so now it's a lot quicker getting through the stage.  Before it woud take 10 minutes just to get through Orochi with A4 SS Iori and SS Chizuru.

Also, I'm sure it will work great with XV Kyo.
If you need something with great DoT for the Hell Dungeon, EX Kyo with the rush FES set is a blessing.

Truly, I was a bit worried XV Kyo might feel stale but whoever is making the units and skills are doing an excellent job.

Also, I'm noticing they're working on Tales of Ash. We already have a lot backgrounds from that saga, and Magaki was even briefly shown when he was getting beat up by Akuma. Maybe by the end of the year, we'll have KOF 2003 story mode.

They should just scrap Championship and make Dream Match the way to get those exclusive coins. I'm literally just missing Eiji in '95. Would be cool if they made a grindable FES XI one to spice things up a bit.

They really made the most fun mode in the whole game a limited affair lol, Netmarble what are you even doing

Probably becuz it won't make any profit.
I would rather want a standalone game that includes all the KOF All-Star characters but is solely for online mode. It could be called "KOFAS Dream Match" or smth. It could be a one time purchase game like every other KOF ports on mobile. Could make a quick and easy buck for Netmarble too cuz they'll simply be recycling all the assets from the original game.

The upgrades to SS Iori are really good. He is easily stronger than SS Kyo now.

1. Mr. Karate for the reds
2. Rock Howard for the blues.
3. Adelheid or Nakoruru for the greens.
4. Kim or Saiki for the yellows.
5. Hotaru for the purples.

I excluded AS versions and the ones with BS/SS versions and the ones I feel are more likely to get new versions like Elizabeth/Ash/Ryo might get an XV version. But they're a lot of yellows that I'd like to get the EX upgrades. Very unlikely to happen so I am just dreaming...

A new filler event has been pushed.  Partake in a variety of dungeons to earn Noah's coins to redeem EX reset coins for your unit's EX board in case new tech is posted as well as "speed up" items for Dispatch. Yea that's basically it.

New dev vid just dropped.



So couple of things.

They admit they 'effed up when it came to the dumb Guild greetings task for that Bingo card.

Change Up kits are indeed way too tedious to acquire for existing FES+ units (you don't say) and are considering toning down the difficulty in acquiring them without getting over 10 copies of an existing unit.  '97 Orochi and '98 Omega Rugal are getting adjusted so Change Up can be gained easier.  Just allow their own dupe memories ffs.

As we approach the game's 4th Anniversary, several items and dungeons available since this game's inception are being considered for reworking so new players aren't overwhelmed with what to do first.

'96 Geese, '98 Krauser, '00 Lin, and False Chris are getting added like normal units at long last.

Tower of Trials, a mode where you can get up to 200 AP daily, is getting reworked.

Leona is defiantly next in line to get the EX revamp.  I really hope she gets bundled with XII Ralf/Clark.

Probably reserved for the next collab/4th anniversary.  Would be shocked if it was axed altogether despite being updated minutes before the SFV collab ended.

EX Kyo Banner along with the Sacred Treasure events have been extended for a couple days more, possibly to compensate for the dumb Guild mission in the board now changed.

Question.  What is the preferred Stone to give to EX Kyo?  Both the exclusive Moon/Star stones are good but the overall event rewards can be redeemed for just one for free and I can't decide between Active Skill damage buffs every 5 secs or increased Critical Rate to go along with his ludicrous nuke damage.

The Critical Rate one would be my recommendation. It adds +62014 CP at level 10. It also works well with the new sacred treasure exclusive option card. And if you're lucky enough to score the set cards, the crit stone will be even more valuable.

The Active Skill stone adds +27658 CP and it is an excellent stone overall, but in the end they both produce basically the same damage but the Crit Stone also gives over twice the CP.

New login bonus granting up to 4k rubies, enough for at least 4 Multis when the next banner is out as well as 10x summon tickets.

Said banner confirmed to be EX Vol.2.  No word on what the next unit will be just yet.  The update will also roll out changes for Omega Rugal '98 and Orochi '97 so you can now use their own memories instead of BS units to level them up.

Ooof, that one has to be painful. I didn't think they go for that and risk making furious the people who paid for more of the BS memories the first time around, but it was the only decision that made any sort of sense in the first place, even if they were afraid it would make it too easy to have OP Rugal 98 and Orochi 97. Somebody's paying for that first bad decision now.
And just 3000 free rubies, even with 3 10x tickets, that's just lame.

They need funding to give Iori a trenchcoat so get hyped for EX Shingo.

Once upon an update, Schoolgirl Xiaoyu was featured as a paid bundle so the devs saw that as a success and not cause of Collab FOMO that they decided to put Ms. Big in a similar bundle that is rougly 4x the price.  Afterwards, the unit was later released like normal through the general pool while those that paid were gifted one Ms. Big memory :tiny:

Basically, not the first they pulled a sleeze move even tho the compensation is BS memories.  More reasons not to invest too heavily on anything outside of collabs these days.

Especially knowing that the models for the XIV and XIII cast (roid Ralf/Clark, Gang-Il etc.) have been sitting in the data for years. I wonder if they'll be EX by the time they come out, or if we'll get some surprise new gold / FES, or if they simply gave up on them.
Do they not have anyone to do the coding and animations or are they seriously sitting there finished but NM actually doesn't care ?

My guess is this new EX will be Shun'ei. They buffed SS Iori but left SS Kyo unbuffed even though he was voted as most in need of buff because of XV Kyo. It would be a new kind of greed for NM to now buff SS Kyo and release XV Iori. Especially after we got just got all this three sacred treasures content. And we saw Shun'ei and Meitenkun kinda announced in XV Kyo's Rush Dungeon.

About the models for Ralf/Clark and the rest...I'm hoping for a strong modding community if NM shuts the game down where we can have all these characters and even new ones. It would be great for this to be something like a new-age mugen.

And Magaki still only has a model with an idle stance.

I was gonna say there's no way we're getting EX Angel, I love her but she's not EX material, they're just fucking around and she'll be FES at best, but the NM forum does say she's the next XV fighter.
If she's really the EX fighter vol2 and it's not 2 different characters in one rate-up...What.

I'm going to laugh if all characters going forward from now are EX rarity. Remember when the only rarity new characters were was FES? And how afterwards the new characters were BS or SS? It's happening again with EX.

Post by: Kirishima on May 26, 2022, 03:49:01 AM
On the plus side wait this means we might be getting EX Ryo and Robert dual banner Team Orochi CYS triple banner and we are gonna bleed for them cause they are gonna give them something dumb like 300k CP boosted Stones and would still die to John Cena in League.

I was naive to believe EX stuff were for key characters like protags and bosses like Red Saiki not for weird things like Angel.  Not that I'm complaining that Angel is finally becoming meta relevant.  Poor chick doesn't even have a 3PG Special Card yet Shingo, Andy, and Kasumi does and they don't have FES class ffs

Looks like Netmarble cannot even spell Shun'ei or get his looks or moves right. He looks just like XV Angel.
But seriously, I'm surprised it's Angel and with BS Leona re-run at that. But I guess since the last one was SS with Iori, this one must be BS.
Also no set cards, just option and special. And she has 4 skills, but looks like the first is a link skill into the second...kinda like SS Chizuru. I'm all for it.

About the EX part, I said it in my older post but I already had a feeling this was going to be the new thing. And after I saw Guild Raid Inferno boxes can give SS/BS blank memory, I knew for sure this would be the way. They're a business, not a charity. As soon as they stop making money, they will not renew the license and the game will shut down. That said, I am looking forward to seeing how fun she is...but I hope they also invest in new content. The new units are usually excellent but the content is lacking. I actually miss the old Deimos Base, not the version that was extremely difficult for no reason.

Edit: I just noticed NM loves the NESTS Saga the most. The most FES, and FES+ units are NESTS.

I for one am glad there is no new FES Set cards.  How can you top the EX Kyo set with the absurd CP and Crit Damage it offers?

Pairing this up with BS Leona feels weird.  Why not Kula so you can give Imprint Stones for those with NESTS Girls label?

R.i.p Foxy and 2001 NESTS team.

soooooo truuuuu

They should make all the silvers bronze and push each tiers back by one to make this look simpler (i.e. gold -> silver, FES -> gold, EX,BS,Signature -> FES)

XII Leona and BS Leona are getting Change Ups with EX Angel's release.  New "Operation Kitty Imprint Stones" along with EX Stones will be released.

Tower of Trials is getting an expansion.  Secret Shop is being refined and Infinite Battle Shop will be removed following the update so cash in any coins before then.  Change up kit will be adjusted in how you can get them.
