Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Best of luck, Nevermore.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

Aside from doing all the free quests, see if there are any interludes for the lower star characters (may have to level them up and get some bond points, I think, though).  Also, when there is maintenance, hope they have to delay it, as they tend to give "apologems" quite regularly.  Only a limited supply of them right now, so hard to say aside from plugging away at those and keeping the daily login streak going.

 

Or spend $$, but from my experience (starting from January '16), they tend to give good amounts of free ones overall.

Quartz isn't really farmable since anything that gives it doesn't do so repeatedly besides login bonuses and maybe some event rewards.
 

Stheno is okay, but only real great use is during Camelot.


Are you sure you're not thinking of Euryale? Stheno is the Assassin, and I thought Camelot is heavier with male Sabers than male Riders. And well, Stheno's NP doesn't really do damage and the debuff is pretty lacking compared to Zhuge Liang or Asterios so I'm not sure about her being okay even in normal conditions.

Yep, it was Euryale for Camelot (they look so similar), Stheno works in very specific combinations with Divine servants, so, yeah, not hugely great later.  Prolly decent for a while on the early Singularities, though.

I'd recommend waiting for the Bride version with a more interesting skillset, but maybe I'm still annoyed at getting the normal Nero instead on the JP version.

I had to give up on Saber Alter after getting NP2 Waver and NP2 Altera...  Was waiting on the story for a long time, so finally doing that, as well as finally getting my Hun-ny to 70. 

 

I have a diverse team, but not many past the first ascension, so not sure how I will fare on Nero Fest.

 

Saber Bride is much better than 4 star Nero (though I still cant stand their voices).  Was my second 5 star character.  And only NP2 5 Star on my Japanese account.  But still wont be for a while (was added during the first Valentine's event).

 

Friend code is: 089 222 366

I'm a little behind on leveling my team. I've been focusing on getting my three Servants maxed out with status up cards before they hit any level caps I can't get them past. Also, farming for ascension materials, which has been going rather poorly.

Got Nero on my first 10-roll of the event. :) I still have another 30 free quartz, so I think I'll try again tomorrow; maybe my luck will hold and I'll nab Altera too. :D

 

Also, thank you again, Homeless, and your absurdly-strong Gilgamesh, for letting me tear through Jeanne and Gilles without having to get hammered by their NPs. :p If I can get that special Craft Essence from this event this way, I'll be happy.

Also, if I'm reading this right, the most you can get of the event CE is 3. So... we can't actually max it out?
