The slippery slope doesn't even exist anymore... we have reverted right back to the "video games kill people" argument now.
Completely different situations. Your attitude shows your unwillingness to respect the very idea that someone's gender identity isn't defined by you or your "opinions", that is one thing that doesn't change from characters to people. You're bigoted.

Not even close dude, this is why people get tired of stuff like this because people like you basically get given an inch and take it halfway across the Universe. Testament is not real as is every other character in the series as is every other piece of fictional media.
Authors have consistently made characters come off as Traps(Or the other way around for Females who dress like dudes to the point they come off as male) by making them as girl as possible to the point they are only not a girl due to basically saying so. So please get off that high horse of yours by trying to tell people they are bigots over a videogame character and applying that to real life.

The only bigot I'm seeing here is you, no one else. So unless you have proof that the people here that are just saying their two cents actually are bigots, how about you go put your 2 cents back in your pocket? Because it damn sure isn't warranted or needed as you are clearly just continuing to start needless conflict.

relax, its just a fictional character
Prejudice is prejudice. If you do it to a fictional character, you do it to real people.

The slippery slope doesn't even exist anymore... we have reverted right back to the "video games kill people" argument now.

There is a difference between misgendering someone because you didn't know their gender and misgendering someone after being explicitly informed of the correct one. First case you're just making a mistake, second you're just a jerk.

relax, its just a fictional character

also here we have: NOT Bedman Trailer
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH_IeHg2un4&ab_channel=MagatsuVale[/youtube]


...Okay, that's hilarious to make it be the damn BED instead of Bedman since he's... dead. But instead of his sister(whose heavily implied to be free now), it's the Bed? What, Bedman infused his consciousness into it or something?

And I realized it was just a meme LMFAO. Damn, got me good there.

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

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

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

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

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

Atleast that's good as it's weird they offered none of that when it came to SS Chizuru and her damage would absolutely tank without those and then did it again here.

I'm probably just going to play it for fun now and not even try to be serious because yeah, EX came in WAY too fast to immediately dethrone SS/BS as the premier level up system and it's just as much a pain in the ass to work around.
To put into perspective in regards to the FES+ thing, it has been over a year since their inception and already we are going into the EX ladder.  I expected another level of power creep but not this soon.  I was predicting sometime after Global's 3rd Anniversary.

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

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

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

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

Like we knew there was A6 and A7 pots but we thought that would lead into something else(Ultimately the Change Up System) not a whole new literal tier we have to work on after this shit.

I don't mean to sound condescending, but this is what you guys signed up for. It's a gacha game, what you're describing is the model most of them use.

I play plenty of gacha games, most don't even do systems like these until 2-3 years after each other, not 1 year after another.

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

They actually UPPED the amount of Coins you get from the dailies for the Event Missions to the Lucky Chance(Takes 100 Coins to roll it but you get 200-300 Coins per Daily Mission completed).
Meaning that you can potentially push towards A6-A7 Chizuru if you are really lucky even counting for the Change Up. Nice change right there in not screwing over players for easy cash.

So would now be a good time to (re)start FGO?

Since you get the free 5*,and Special Ascension exists, you just have to grind Bond right?

Depends on how many SSR you have and how far you are in the game right now.
They give you a good decent amount of items for completing each Main Quest in every Singularity/EoR/Lostbelt so it wouldn't be too difficult to get the items needed to say Fully Ascend Waver...

But if you have some limited time SSRs or SR's, I would recommend against doing it since well, you can get an SSR ticket now as long as you log in during the alloted timeframe as a whole even if you haven't played in a long time.

Atleast we are going back to SS Chizuru...

My biggest problem with her is how they give her no SS stones or equivalent meaning you need to go out of your way to give her good stones which is a pain in the ass.
Atleast she got decent buffs and has a free Change Up too... just sucks I can't get her to A4 atleast without losing access to it.

Ended up getting NP2 Scathath in one multi(Which makes up for me getting NP6 Artoria going for Quirinus).
Ended up with NP1 Dioscuri, NP3 Caenis and grabbed Bradamante from the ticket.

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

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

Here is my story and view on all this:

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

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

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

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

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

Although my dreams of Vice and Juri in the same team got squashed, I'm enjoying this Collab. We're getting a lot of good things but the business side of this is very obvious. A5 is changing from "it's fancy" to "it's your unit's full potential."

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

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

Alright, now I got the Star Twins at NP1, no Quirinus and I'm not even sure if I will roll on his banner again if I do stock up since I'm saving for the Requiem Event.

I'll just say one thing: Testament being non-binary is not based on whether you like it or not, nor on what they wear, and not respecting someone's gender identity, even if its a character, is quite a "yikes".

Everything you said there is a "yikes" because I seriously hate every part of that creeping up.
They designed Testament so much like a girl that to me and others, she might as well be a girl. So don't be trying to suddenly be on some high horse with me for a fictional character like somehow it's just that evil when people have made fun of characters like Cloud in this exact situation for less.
They could have easily just made Testament slightly more girly than basically surpassing Bridget, there's a major difference.

Otherwise like I said before, if they didn't change Testament's moveset too much, then THEY may be fun to watch but as it seems like they did... guess not(I only heard that they kept the spirit of Testament's style but otherwise the moveset is gutted like many others).

Yeah, I used DI's to basically force the Alpha Chun to Awakening 5 just to get it over with but unfortunately, that was AFTER I used the Change Up on A1 Luke so now Alpha Chun has no major boost until well AFTER the Event.
I did get the EX Ryu but I have to look into how the hell he works and if I need to roll the gacha for more copies or not.
And there's also the Super Cards and everything else too...

So it's definitely not high up there for me.

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

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

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

Like it's hard for me to really say if this is better than the Guilty Gear and Dead or Alive Collaboration or if it's worse than them due to this.

meh i prefer the old design , the new one looks generic anime waifu.

Same here, I just will otherwise call this Testament Female basically, if Testament is supposed to be Non-Binary, outside of the ENG VA, none of it stands out in any fashion even compared to say Bridget.

Otherwise if she plays fine, I'll be rooting for her to atleast bring back Testament's original gameplay style.

And yeah, I do plan on buying this game at a later time, I just never really had the chance to respond here due to forgetting.
