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.

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.

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.

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?

Another question, I don't know which character I should pick among Omega Rugal and the Orochi versions of New Faces, Leona and Iori. What you guys recommend? I already have Orochi Shermie.
Title: Re: King of Fighters All-Stars (Mobile)

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)
Post by: L.E.O.N on May 10, 2020, 05:53:23 PM

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:

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.

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.

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.

At the end of the last big event a couple months ago, I had 60 million gold.
I just hit 300k gold.
Give more fucking gold, Netmarble.
(also I just realized that 1* and 2* cards still exist. Zero purpose left.)

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.

Also Halloween event, it would be odd if they skipped it this year. Among all these possibilities, I'd expect the collab to come a bit later, like next month.

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".

(also why are there so many? wasnt there like only 3 in Jp?)

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.

Yep, all under the banner yet they keep doing the seperate expensive packages for lady fighters so you can be sure this isn't the last you'll hear about them.  They finally readded the pity ticket bit restricted to 1 of 6 units of your choice.  Still better than how it was before.

Now they just need to fix the Battle Card system.

Collabs simply don't cross over between games like that. You'd be seeing a lot more of that everywhere if it were like that.

Global has caught up with JP/KR, a new genderbent character comes out every two or four weeks on all versions now. They just also put another regular character at the same time.

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.
