    Also JP had a Gem only (1 time 11 pull full price) banner in the most recent fest with a nice selection AND you got to choose 1 BSB after your full (all BSBs were on the list released up to that date).

    I raised my eyebrows when seeing that.

    My only question after that was - can I pull more than once? :)

    I know F2P players will feel left out / outraged. But the way I (admittedly a whale) see it is, FFRK being essentially a single player game, it makes sense for whales to get more if they are willing to pay. To put it bluntly, the game earns more from a whale paying for one pull, than a F2P player using mythril for 10.

    The "fairness" issue is addressed by two things 1. whales don't get anything exclusive, they simply get more, 2. being single player, whales are not going to make anyone else's playing experience worse. In fact, in MP, you'll get better geared team mates.

    And on the first point, whaling just gives more chances to get something. On a particular banner, a lucky F2P player can very well do better than a whale. In the long term, whales get more options and overall are stronger, sure. But even clearing high level content gets you "more" stuff, not "exclusive" stuff.

    Well said Kenny! We both know a certain lucky F2P player that has amazing relics, so whaling doesn't even always get you what you want since it's still a ridiculous gambling system instead of a true purchasable content system.

    My point wasn't to disparage whales. I get it, people need to keep spending money to make the game viable. My point is that I don't recall an earlier point in this game's history when DeNA was as blatant in their cash grabs as right now. Again, 12 banners are up right now, and more will likely be up, soon.

    I have no interest in the money topic, but I think it is appropriate to post the next opinion.

    -If you open a casino today, the table and the slot machine should be in the choice of more.

    -If you selling new products, meanwhile also let everyone have the opportunity to know his benefits.

    -No matter what kind of business you're run, they always risk.

    -Everyone pursuit of desire is different, some people choose to satisfied some people desperately pursued.

    -Do not magnify the lucky man, under the math it's very few.

    -You marry a wife today because you love does't mean she can give birth.

    Just had one of the cleanest, most satisfying Apoc+ Adamanchelid fights possible, with @Alci and two Discorders, Tinbad and menoari --- thanks everyone!

    Sure, Squall wasn't doing ideal damage with his OSB and we only have Onion as a Boostga, but most of the damage we took was so low thanks to @Alci's Setzer piling Breakdown after Breakdown after Breakdown and we got mitigation back up pretty quickly after Bay/Ultimate Bay, Tinbad's Tyro pulling USB duty and just soaking up all the Confuses and Interrupts, Snow BSB, plus 3 Last Stands and an Entrust on Eiko to completely blow right through the triple Ultimate Trample without anyone dying...

    You just can't get any smoother than that. Thanks guys!

    Solo Raid Apoc+
    Saved RW Cast immediately after the scripted Dispels and saved OSB's toward the end.
    Not sure if I just got lucky but I only got hit 2 times by 99k attacks and didn't get hit much by status's either, in fact, on this particular run there were zero status's dealt to me.

    RW: Guardian Mog
    Squall: OSB
    Ramza: Shout

    FINALLY BEAT THE A+! That was one of the hardest battles I've fought in this game, possibly worse than Nemesis, but posting the pic of the team that helped me. No idea who any of you are, but everyone ROCKED! People were playing exactly as they should throughout and we didn't need any gigantic bursts of damage (no Squall BSB), just consistent mitigation combined with consistent damage flow. I'd say my Summer of Salt is officially drawing to a close with this victory. Followed each of these bitchez because these folks killed it!!!

    In order:
    Rinoa BSB, Vanille BSB (but kudos to you for using C1 AND bringing XIII shared faithga!)
    Zell BSB (MVP), Tyro SG/USB (plus Affliction Break)
    Snow BSB (MVP), Y'shtola BSB
    Me: Eblan Doppleganger, Yuna USB

    P.S. This fight has convinced me that I've under-valued Edge for too long. His last stand and blink were CRITICARU in this battle. I think it's full diving time for him.

    Adamanchelid (Apocalypse+) 3-Player MP Mastered Clear (w/ @robaisolken, @pattter)



    ...then we went back with the same party and carried @sipuss through Apoc+ as well, the n00b. :Crying Laughing:

    Sweet Last Stand, Batman, this battle was nuts, but I finally managed to solo this week's Apoc+ Turtle Demon Nightmare from Mog's Bed. Couldn't Master, not even going to try. I don't have native OK BSB or Y'shthola. Could've brought Vanille instead of one of these options, but I literally have no ice SBs, and Cid just isn't enough to take this guy down on his own. Yuna was MVP though, and brought the entire team back from death not once, but TWICE, the second time at which she was alone and had just come back from her previous Last Stand. This was so close!

    SBs used:
    Raines: BSB and OSB (wish I had a good dark+ armor for him)
    Hope: OSB (Shellga and Chain Blizzaga for the last-moment bullets that finally knocked him down!)
    Tyro: SG (FBD and MBD)
    Yuna: USB (Ultra Cure and Protectga)
    Edge: last stand/haste/phy-blink, MVP (Steal Power, Phantasm - which does pretty decent damage once he's dived and has a good stat stick on him!)
    RW: OK BSB (used on Hope)

    Pretty sure that the giant adamantchild turtle didn't see that coming!

    He got his taily assphinx handed to him.

    Thank you to the OP-ness of @robaisolken (ROBAI!), @raazychx (WHM!) and @Walksy (TWD).

    There was a lot going on, but what with Edge last standing and Selphie and Aerith topping up our mobile health, then my Angelsong defining our victory.
    We had too my phys dps for its thick skin to handle. Very clean, and nicely organised by Robai to suggest I switch from Wall to KT after the Ultimate Bay on 41%.
    Lion and Squall do some vicious damage.

    Ok so I'm stepping up and saying FUCK ADAMANCHELID!!

    This boss is so broken, you can't, YOU JUST CAN'T BEAT HIM without ice OSBs and/or instant heal/support SBs. At 40% threshold he just turns as fast as a bullet and hurts you like 3 times before you can charge ONE action! At least that's what I saw from my experience.
    This is the first Raid boss I couldn't beat. I had little time this week and many many many internet issues.

    And it feels so bad.
    Dammit...

    :( Sorry man. Don't take it too hard. Vitality notes are going to be released more pretty soon! Meanwhile this was apparently the toughest MP in JP TO DATE, so it's only easier from here!
