So, I only cleared H8-1 back when it released. Tried to beat H8-2, but couldn't figure it out. Wanted to give it another go later and it was waiting like that since then. Recently I finally gave it another shot and actually manage to beat it after dozen or so tries. For H8-3 I had to go back to M8-8 and actually defeat Mephisto properly, since I only let him pass and never cleared stage with 3 stars. Turns out it wasn't that hard. So with knowledge how to beat him, I got back. Took me dozen of tries, but manage to figure out right setup and it wasn't that hard. Quickly checked out H8-4 after it. Didn't have any good ideas how to beat it immediately, so after few tries I put it for later again.

And now I finally went back to it and after trying several times, it's actually quite easy. I have reliable setup to kill mobs and first phase of Talulah. In fact I'm surprised how much of pushover she is. I didn't remember Deathless Black Snake to be so easy. The hardest part is protecting the damn civilians. They really expect you to not only have setup for all the mobs and sputniks, but also for Talulah herself and then immediately after defeating her, have setup to tank 40k worth of arts dmg. I want to kill those civilians myself >.> I still didn't figure it out, so far only 1 line is safe thanks to Specter and I'm starting to feel like going easy way, just to be done with this bs, and borrow someone's Nightingale.

On another note, yesterday I finally got another Top OP tag. About time, since last one was quite long ago. I didn't really have any good choices, since I could only go for guarantee Ifrit or Saria/Shining/Nightingale. Current pot for Ifrit didn't give her anything good, so it didn't feel worth it. Same for Saria/Shining and at this point I was in no rush to get Nightingale. I decided to go Top + DPS to lower pool a little and maybe luck out and roll Schwarz. Which I did... so I'm really happy with that x3

Finally did new anni. It was surprisingly easy. The hardest part was making sure civilians won't die, but after 3 attempts or so I have pretty reliable setup so this time I shouldn't have so much issues with auto running it like with previous annis.

Depending on when this was, it was either when I put my Blaze on support so she shows up for my sister who was having difficulty with the OD-EX stages and having Blaze made it easier. Or it was that time after where a friend asked for Dusk with skill 2. Same reasoning: so that my support shows up.

I think I actually saw both, but I definitely remember Dusk. I see, so that's what it was about. Thanks!

Sora being mad jelly she doesn't get a skin lol.

To be fair, Sora is idol by default and she did get summer skin.

Also the new 6 star looks like Jeanne... Jeanne D'Arknights.

Hahahah xD Good one x3

Should probably try and see how well Mudrock can facetank that assorted wakey-wakey Sarkaz nastiness but I'm a little concerned over her relative susceptibility to Arts...

She did a great job during CC with pretty high risks, so I'm pretty sure she should be able to tank them easily in normal stage. Her shield refreshes every other shot and she has 30% resist against Sarkaz enemies, so she actually can take a lot of hits before going down.

And yeah those upcoming idol skins are pretty neat. Am I the only one who thinks Pine looks comically awks and uncomfortable in hers...? :P

Yes xD I love how she is only able to force herself to smile for a brief moment and it looks totally forced x3

That said, it did seem rate up was working for you seeing that you did get multiple copies of the rate up characters. Saga dupes are definitely welcome I think.

True. So far when I was rolling a lot, I was pretty lucky. Got few spooks on Rosmontis banner but also got like 9 6 stars, while on Dusk banner outside of that Ceobe, I only got rate up 6 stars, so can't really complain about it. Nian was really just a very specific one where she's not technically rate up, but also not a spook.

Still, congrats anyway. Ash dupes feel useful for me since it makes her initial deployment much cheaper.

Yea. I am really happy with it.

I was actually using the Saga + Warfarin strat. I dunno if it was due to my Saga not being max pot or max level (only level 60) but I couldn't replicate this video.

Yea. Was thinking of checking it after I beat stage myself, to see how it was done exactly. I'd put my guess on you not having max lvl, since it seems like Saga needs a very specific amount of dmg to pull it off.

Frostnova supports my ship

That's both hilarious and adorable xD

So few things I forgot. First, what was up with you suddenly only having 1 support set up? At least I'm pretty sure it was you. Also because I was waiting for second free 10 roll to see what I'll get and see if I'll roll for guarantee Ashe, I was waiting with rolling on Blemishine/Mostima banner and end up forgetting to do so (it was fine, since I do have everyone from that banner). I did roll 10 roll on Eyja banner before rolling more on Ashe's and I got Eyja. Finally getting Schwarz would be cool, but can't complain since I use her all the time. In fact since I had a lot of yellow certs and next copy upgraded her second talent, which is really strong, I bought another copy from shop. It makes her into even better helidrop so no regrets. And lastly, I noticed it already when I rolled for Rosmontis, but forgot to mention. Since I had a lot of green certs, I figured maybe for a change I'll get to third phase and get some more orundum, but then realized since they added that 3 and 4 star vouchers, you're actually forced to buy them to go to last phase now, which is really shitty, especially for whales that will have all 3/4 stars at this point and want those vouchers the least, when they're the only ones who will have enough green certs to actually reach phase 3 regularly.

Also past few days I had some insane tag luck. I got 2 fast redeployment, specialist and support the same day, which do happen sometimes (few guarantee at least 4 stars in a row), but then I also got Liskarm from single defender tag as well as nuker and got another nuker following day.

It's nice that game remembers all your autos. I just run all of them once to get mission rewards and then focused on farming DM-7. For some reason my autos for DM-6 and 7 no longer worked, so I had to clear DM-6 manually and redo it for 7 to farm. I'm actually looking forward to beating EX stages again since last time I was playing I still had most operators at E1, so I want to see how hard stages will be for me now. Especially with MO, I now E2'ed everyone I used there and I want to see now how easily Hellagur will be cutting up all those Grudgebearers. Also I really like that we pretty much get free yellow certs from bonus Sideroca tokens (assuming you played event the first time and got her).

myrrhmidon posted:

Speaking of the map we just got, I am glad it's way easier than the one before. My auto is way more reliable this time and Ash shines in this map against the UFOs.

Wanted to do anni before rerun, but had no time/energy to play it, so didn't touch it yet. I find most enemies from Ursus a pain to deal with, so I'm not really looking forward to beating it. Double so since so far I wasn't able to make 1 stable auto for new annis. Like I can beat them and usually there are no leaks, but often 1 enemy passes by or auto breaks at the very end, so usually I need to keep a eye on it and can't just let it play in background and wasn't able to fix any of them despite my numerous attempts.

New skin for Pinecone looks insanely adorable! New support archetype seems quite interesting and operator is cute too. New medic as well. I like that they're still trying to add new archetypes and make gameplay more diverse.

random posted:

I'll just say I quite liked the way the devs used the OD event (and R6 bios) as an opportunity to discuss the oft-hinted-elsewhere differences in the technological paradigm etc. in a narratively organic fashion that doesn't come across as a pure infodump.

Yea. It is pretty clever and interesting, while also being a natural way to do it.

Finally finished the event as well. Pretty fun - the stages were fairly easy, but the music was a definite highlight for me

Yea. Music was really great.

So rolled all way till 300 rolls. Got 2 more hungry doggos and in last 10 roll got another Dusk. Ngl, I really wished it'd be Nian, cos then I could buy second copy of her from shop cos especially for defender that 1 DP cost matter, but och well. Didn't really get any other 5 stars outside of several few more Nothings (I think, it was a while, so I might had 1-2 more spooks, but don't remember).

myrrhmidon posted:

Finally cleared EX stages and challenge modes. Really had to pay attention to event gimmicks especially EX-6. I wasn't understanding why roadblock placement was causing me to not block the enemies. I initially just wanted to set up an Ifrit lane. Only after watching a guide did I realize that roadblocks would make the enemies go through different color changing tiles. The roadblock placement had to be specific. EX-8 with the boss, "Free", wasn't as hard to figure out. I like that assuming they both have the same color, Cuora with shield can tank Free's shield burst. Still cheesed it with Surtr for the medal but for the challenge, I brought out THICC snek to 1v1 the boss. I just love seeing Eunectes in action.

While gimmick was important, it wasn't that hard to figure out, at least for me. EX-6 gives me PTSD. It was such a pain to figure out how to place blocks for them to change color properly. I barely managed to do normal version, but thanks to bonus blocks in CM, I couldn't repeat my strat, so I decided to fuck it and it was only stage I used guide for. I wasn't happy I had to, but I value my sanity more. Turns out this stage is BS and the hard part is figuring out the pattern of blocks and once you do, it's easy af, because they'll change color exactly so you can block them and then suddenly this stage has no challenge whatsoever. 10/10 design. Made only to annoy us. Beat other stages without much problem. Really liked the way I beat EX-8. Easily did it without breaking shield, though I wasn't going out of my way to do it.

I initially just wanted to set up an Ifrit lane.

Relatable eyes

Yay got Ash without having to use up all 120 rolls.

GJ!

RNG absolutely hated me. With my first free 10 roll I got Clifheart. Then with my second free roll I got freaking Skadi spook. Wasn't going to roll, but then after thinking about it I thought Ashe was pretty cool and at this point I kinda want to collect all operators, so I decided to throw some more rolls. Third 10 roll was Sesa. Forth was Saria spook. Fifth was Astesia. Sixth was FEater. Seventh was no 5 star and finally with Eight I got Ashe... When I rolled 300 rolls for Rosmontis and Dusk, I got rate up 5 star almost all the time, when I'd really wish I got spook by other 5 stars I don't have yet/don't have maxed out, meanwhile in 1 banner that I really wished to just get 1 copy and be done with, I keep getting spooked. Ninth was Asbestos, which nice, cos I don't have her yet, but also c'mon >.> Tenth was another Astesia <,< (and at this point I already have her max pot). Eleven was another Ashe and finally blitz. At this point I was rolling tickets/single rolls, so my count got a bit unclear, but I think either around twelve or thirteen 10 roll I finally got Frost and stopped. All in all I'm pretty happy with those rolls, but it was such pain to go through.

OD-8 is PAIN. I can't believe I have to reliably auto farm this for grindstone. Not excited for the EX-stages at all.

Idk. I beat all stages relatively easily. Had to spend few hours to figure out how to beat OD-8, but once I did, I had really reliable auto that just needed few tweaking. Farmed 100 grindstones from it easily (I also farmed 100 manganese ore). The Dead Space/Resident Evil vibe was pretty fresh and interesting. Beat all the challenge stages without too much of a problem too. Only one that was actually really hard, but I also appreciated the challenge, because it was a while since I really felt like anything was truly hard, was OD-EX-8. I really don't know what I'd do without Rosmontis there. Once I beat normal version, I was really worried about challenge mode condition, but lucky for me I didn't use any tile that was banned, so I thought I'll beat it relatively easy. Jokes on me, cos it took me few hours, cos apparently with my strat/levels there was a bit of rng and/or I had to execute everything perfectly. Actually my second and third run were really close. In second I defeated everything except for Glorious Evolution and then lost to its spam, before it died and in last it died and I almost won, but 1 fucking tumor split manage to slip by. After that for some reason my next dozen or so runs couldn't even reach finishing line and I'd die during third phase or sometimes even before I reached it, hence why I felt like there was some rng at play. But alas managed to beat it in the end.

I really liked cooperative mode. People kept talking how it'll be troll fest and unless you have irl friends, beating it with randoms will be impossible, but that was far from true. I cleared everything alone and even when I kept failing and was being matched with the same person few times in a row, they'd never dodge me. I think someone left in middle only few times and most of times it was because they got completely destroyed. Only few of those were when it was going fine, but maybe they just got disconnected. Either way, I definitely didn't find 1 person that was actively trolling. Beat all stages at CM, top and bot and even went out of my way to beat all of them without any leaks. I played all top stages until I manage kill everything without letting any enemy go down.

Also something I literally noticed just now is that when you add all 4 Rainbow 6 operators to control center instead of working they'll rest, which is kinda BS. I asked support and apparently that's not bug, but working as intended, despite it not being written anywhere. Kinda defeats the point of having team with base skills that specifically are supposed to increase effectiveness when you have more members to stop working when you add all of them together. I have no idea who thought that turning CC into dormitory just when you add those 4 specific operators was good idea (and yes, any fifth operator you will add, will be resting as well).

I will admit that her target weight of 40kg seems a little low.

Sadly Japan has insane standards, that's why around 40kg number shows up so often as targeted weight and over that is consider being fat. It's really frustrating to read those mangos that go into a lot of depth about diets, calories etc. when character is barely overweight and often in completely healthy range, but everyone acts as if she looked like stereotypically obese American. Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? is good example from top of my head.

The episode was really good. Great cinematography! Solid animation! Good character writing! It's everything good about the series and little of what's bad

No. I actually played the game and know how the story is supposed to go. Yes, episode would be good if not for the fact it's stuff we mostly saw in OG series, that doesn't really bring much to the story anime is telling about and that takes entire 1 episode from 13 episode run of series that already was rushed as hell in season 1 and they clearly have not enough time to tell rest of the story.

I feel like you've decided you hate the series and are working backwards from there?

Decided? I was defending season 1 for 12 weeks as it was airing, when most people were complaining about it. I played the devil's advocate, saying it's actually good. But when final episode aired, I was forced to admit, that adaptation is trash and it neither lived up to source material, nor managed to create something different that stands on its own. I made a entire wall of text explaining all my reasons for it, which clearly nobody read. I was so pissed at how they butcher my favorite arc of entire game and the reason I fallen in love with the story in the first place, I decided to not even watch season 2, so the fact I even given it a chance already show that I still have some soft spot for this story.

myrrhmidon posted:

Dusk in 62 rolls and not even the first 6 star. The first was off banner lol but then from a single roll, Saga! I still have 100+ rolls for the R6S collab so I'm grateful.

Awesome!

I wasn't really going to roll on it. Nian was literally first banner I rolled on when I started, spend everything and game spooked me twice and gave Aak from rate up instead, so I was really salty and since now I learned how to play better and don't rely on defenders anymore, I don't even really need Nian, so I was telling myself that I don't care about her anymore. Mr. Nothing seemed like really bad operator and I didn't really care that much about Saga/Dusk.

But I was feeling down and I really wanted something nice happening to me and some rush of serotonin, so I started rolling. And I did skipped Nian's rerun banner since I figured, she'll be in this banner as well and is more likely to show up if you get spook, and since rate up hates me, I'll probably get spooked with her easily. So rolling this banner to potentially get both limited operators in 1 go seemed like much better idea. Got Saga in first 30 rolls. Of course the 6 star I care the least about. Then in my 110 roll I got 2 6 stars. If I got both sisters there, it'd be perfect and ideal place to end. Got Hokusai as first and then second was... CEOBE SPOOK. Like I use her a lot and -1DP will come in handy, but c'mon game >.> I really just want freaking Nian and you're cucking me second time...

Ironically, if I could add my rolls from her first banner I'd have 300 rolls already and could just buy her. Well rolled everything I had, am at around 200 rolls and got another copy of dusk. I'll roll daily rolls now and if I won't get spooked by end of event I'll just roll till 300 and buy her. Doesn't help that I also bought guarantee 6 star roll. Value wise it was probably the best to pick Weedy/Thorns/Magellan one, but I'd probably not use them in long time, so I went for Schwarz/Phantom/Suzuran one. I really hoped I'll just get Schwarz, maybe 2 6 stars, but ended up with Phantom, which is nice, if I actually finally invested in him...

Either way, got Nightmare, Astesia, Leizi, 2 Greythroat, Ayascarpe, Cliffheart, Warfarin, Sora, 8-9 Mr. Nothing and first copy of Aosta and Leonhardt. Also maxed out Pinecone. I was salty at first, but after using them I have to say, I really like Dusk animations, I like her skills, especially since I liked Gitano's skill and she is voiced by Hokusai Nogami Yukana. Mr. Nothing grown on me, I kinda like his flamboyant personality as well as his design and he isn't actually that bad, so I don't mind I max pot him. And Saga is good doggo and spamming her S2 is fun.

I skipped story for now (and will probably read it never) to clear stages and set up my trust rock farm so I can forget about event until next week challenge stages open. I like new gimmick and enemies.

Also I like that they finally added option to pick avatar, but sadly selection is very limited. Wish it was mentioned somewhere though (unless it was and I missed it). Only noticed, because I saw some people had them, so I checked my profile.

Lol. Now Magia Record adapts prologue of the game. In first episode of second season. Well it was technically changed, but it showed the most important part from prologue, that you were supposed to know watching entire season 1, so... gj? Also episode was mostly filler if you watched OG series, so I started skipping half-way through. I gave second season chance half, because it was so long since season 1, so I kinda got over my shock how bad this adaptation is and half from morbid curiosity to see how badly they'll fuck up rest of the story and what kind of changes they'll do in general. Hell, maybe it'll actually not be that bad! First episode didn't give great impression and almost made me feel like not bothering after all, but then I did really miss that story, so maybe I'll try and stuck with it...

I agree that chapter was feeling pretty nice until MC started licking Senpai's leg all over in public...

New chapter I have very mixed feelings about it.

Dan0 posted:

On the other hand when Seto said she has to get use to lewd things, I think she is practicing this romance stuff for that she could use it on younger Mc.

She isn't cos they never got together. And without future MC here, she would never even try learning lewd stuff until she get married. The reason her marriage failed is possibly, because she married someone to finally understand love? Since author 1. spend 0 time establishing her partner and 2. made him a guy, tells me he'll be completely irrelevant to the story and was just a plot device for entire premise to start.

g2s posted:

Just caught up with this series.
So she's cucking her past self uh? Pretty sure that's in the top 3 of "fuck ups you shouldn't do when time traveling".

She's not. She never got together with Senpai, so there's nobody to cuck.

Caku posted:

Oh, this is funny, there is a yuri couple before the yuri couple.
Well, but this make curious if senpai was into girls why she still married someone else

Have you ever heard of "bisexuality"?

But story clearly implies Senpai had interest in MC, so the question why the fuck they never got together then is valid and honestly something that's looming over this entire series for me as I'm reading it further.

benja posted:

I do like some ecchi on my manga but this is getting kind of tedious,

Have to agree with that. The sex scenes just start to feel out of place and distracting at this point.

Ramunes posted:

I don't know how that cute girl in glasses ended up being human trash.

You mean the cute girl in glasses that is so obsessed with Senpai, she spends 24/7 masturbating, while fantasizing about her and dating (and fucking) her is here sole purpose in life, to the point it consumed her for next 10 years and she traveled back in time, because she hit her head while masturbating on playground, thinking about said Senpai, after she got divorced? You're wondering how that cute girl in glasses ended up being human trash?

TifalovesAerith posted:

And I mean, we are still ignoring the fact that MC does not even belong to this timeline, and whatever she pulls here might have an consequence on her own timeline, are we?

Why should she care? Usually in time travel stories MC either travels intentional, so their intention is to mess with timeline as little as possible and/or they only want to change 1 specific thing and nothing else or MC went back by accident, but have clear means to go back, so the same thing apply (Back to the future, for example). Here MC went back by accident and has 0 clue have to go back, so as far as she is concerned, she'll spend rest of her life here. Why should she even care about any changes to her timeline, since there's like very high chance, she won't even see them? For her this right now is pretty much her timeline now. Also as other person already pointed out, if she instead helped herself out, she'd be stuck her without being able to date Senpai and watching her younger self being happy. She is clearly not kind of person to value her younger self happiness more than her own or taking a moral high ground. All she can think about is how to fuck Senpai today for crying out load...

Also in stories where MC travels back to their younger self, the entire reason is usually so they have chance to redo their past, so changes to timelines are kinda inherent to those stories and this story is more similar to that version with exception that MC physically went back, which imo makes it actually more interesting and unique.

Aile posted:

I thought that the presence of "Mai Sasaki" would somehow end up helping the younger Nana go out with Aya even if that wasn't her intention. Now it looks like Kaedeko is going to actively be a wingwoman against the older one.

And here I thought that the future nanasawa will help her past self to be with the senpai considering that she learned that senpai loves her past self, but it turns out, she doesnt give a shit about it and just want the senpai for herself.

Again. She has no clue how to get back, as far as she knows, she's stuck in the past and given her thought pattern, she's not about to just pass on dating Senpai she longed for for last 10+ years. Also while her trying to help her old self date Senpai, could be interesting, I feel like her future self trying to win Senpai over is more unique and interesting and that's what premise sold me on, so I'm much more interested in that. If Senpai had some reason to believe, getting her past self to date Senpai is some sort of win condition to get back to future and still date Senpai, I'm sure she wouldn't mind helping her old self, but as it's "real" life and nobody gave her quest objectives, the best she can do is just go off the information she has rn.

Xyeed posted:

God this MC is just so strange. She just keeps acting like her younger self is a compelety different person and keeps getting jealous of them. It's just so weird that she barely acknoweldges they exist and doesn't even think of them. I thought maybe she might befrend her since it seemed like she had a pretty lonely time in high school but no, she doesn't care about her younger self.

To be fair, past MC is different person. They're separate by 10 years of experience. Sure, at some point you don't change much, but especially between your teen self and adult self, there is bound to be a lot of growth and change, especially since it's specifically said that MC tried to change herself and her image. Also just for comparison, future MC is way more outgoing and open about her sexuality than past MC, which already makes them quite different. So yes, I totally can buy that for MC, her past self looks and feels like completely different person she has no issue disregarding. Again, since as far as she knows, she's never getting back and never becomes that past MC again, so w/e she does now, won't affect herself.

This MC is just so one dimensional, all she think's about just senpai.

I'll agree with that and I'm really not big fan of love obsessed characters.

I thought that the presence of "Mai Sasaki" would somehow end up helping the younger Nana go out with Aya even if that wasn't her intention. Now it looks like Kaedeko is going to actively be a wingwoman against the older one.

Which brings another question. If she was so good at reading people, why didn't she read that past MC was in love with Senpai and help her? In fact why didn't she read that past MC loves Senpai as well now and sense a love triangle? This is another thing just like supposedly Senpai having interest in past MC is making it harder for me to read, because I'm constantly thinking and questioning why the hell you didn't get together then?

Calling it now: Senpai will fall in love with Future Nana but mutual love will make Future Nana disappear. Past Nana will then proceeds to go through the very same image change and after meeting again Senpai will fall in love all over again with Nana because she reminds her of Sasaki Mai. Happy(?) end.
That or this ain't even time traveling and she's just in a coma in the present or still sleeping in the park lmao.

Both of those would be incredibly stupid though... (not to mention would feel like a asspull)

I am starting to see that Senpai's horniness is could actively as a character flaw that sets her back. Like it could be actively getting in the way of her relationship, and that's cool.

Yea. I wouldn't mind it as much, if it was a character flaw for MC to overcome, but at this point it doesn't really feel like it'll go anywhere or at least it doesn't seem like MC is actually learning anything.

Anyway, I can stomach some reluctance for a bit, but the point of that kind of trope for me is the breaking of it. Do boundaries get set and enforced, turning it into a commentary on consent and enthusiastic participation? Or does the reluctant or tsundere character start to melt into it and welcome it? IMO that aspect of their dynamic was hot for the first two, maybe three chapters, because it had some, "hot older woman has her eyes set on my body, oh no~!" vibes, and it was like, breaking the barrier that the MC had experienced when she was younger by being forward so that Seto-senpai also got to expereince the horni. But beyond that, it's definitely overstaying its welcome. They're not committing to either, "she kinda likes it and wants more," or, "this is actually a problem in their relationship," and so it just becomes weird non-con stuff that halts the pace of any fluffy feelings without building on them. Maybe if it didn't seem so disconnected to their emotions, or if Senpai's reaction was more of a "no, I shouldn't. But..." then I would like it more, but as it stands, I'm very ready for their dynamic to move on.

I totally agree with that. It feels like series can't commit either way and doesn't know what it wants to be.

Man at first I was liking this but with all the recent chapters and literally no growth in any character... the MC revolving her entire life around this younger girl is something I'm realizing is so gross. If this story wanted to be porn and ecchi, it should've just embraced it instead of giving some dumb plot like teaching Senpai romance so she can become a better actor. By giving the future girl a goal, it promises us development. But then the story goes around and just shits on it every chapter and gives no progression at all in favor of some sexy scene. IF YOU CAN'T GIVE US A GOOD STORY, STOP PROMISING IT AND JUST BE PORN. Not this wishy-washy shit.

Honestly the appeal at first was "the confident older woman can now make advances on her senpai" but like the MC is also super needy and literally got a job to be able to see her senpai every day at a cafe... like that's not hot confident older woman action anymore...that's just desperate. Desperate is literally the exact thing we want to avoid since it's what her younger self was. Way to throw away the initial appeal.

That's exactly what I wanted to write! I feel like if this series was just straight porn, it would work much better, because despite trying to have plot, it doesn't really feel like it's progressing it and instead is being held down by unnecessary ecchi scenes that would be fine in just porn. Also at first having Senpai being so open about her sexuality and aggressive was fresh, because we rarely have those kind of character that know their sexuality, what they want and are not afraid to act on it, but after first few chapters it exactly got tedious and MC's obsession and possessiveness with Senpai, to the point where she gets insecure and jealous of her own past self (that she knows fully well, never went anywhere with Senpai and therefore isn't a treat) is really starting to get in the way of the story.

In the case of "Ends of a Dream," it could probably use a slightly stiffer warning than Drama without it being too spoilery. Not much gets to me badly, but that one has some seriously gutting stuff in it for those who have lived something similar.

Maybe general Trigger Warning tag for those cases?

Back in CN's 1st anniversary stream last year, the devs teased these upcoming ops.

Och, thanks. Yea, now that you mention, I do remember those posters and people mentioning it few times, but I wasn't aware/didn't remember they were supposed to be future operators.

With CC ending, I decided to check my support usage. Suzuran is to be expected. Eunectes somewhat surprising. But Iris?! Wow, congrats to those two people. I had checked last time too and I was surprised at how much Eunectes gets used in CC.

Wow, awesome! My support was barely used this time, but half of it might be cos I changed it twice during event. I did change it mostly cos it wasn't being used though.

I really tried, but couldn't max risk yesterday. I was able to reach W and even kill her, but 9 times out of 10, she'd take half my team with her, because my setup was quite rng heavy and in rare situations when I did pull it off, I wasn't able to deal with mobs spawning at the end. Have to say killing W with W was pretty fun though. W betraying even herself!

On the other hand last daily was pretty easy. Didn't take too long to figure out setup for ballistas.

Now I'm actually hyped for new event!
