Player’s Choice Godfest (PCGF) is a special event where players are allowed to vote on their favourite cards to be featured in a Godfest. Historically speaking, PCGF has become an underwhelming event pre-disclosed rolling rates due to the fact that Godfest Exclusives (GFE) were always voted in and had abysmal rolling rates. With that being said, things have taken a turn for the better with this current format featuring the top 25 GFE and top 25 Pantheon cards with any GFE having a 33% roll rate.
Of course there is a catch as all rolls will cost 10 Magic Stones with GungHo trying to sweeten the deal by having all rolls come out at +297, Max Level, Max Awoken, and their 7-star form (evolved/Awoken if possible). While this is frustrating due to the inflated cost and arguably redundant collateral benefits, this is the way of the future for high-value Godfests.
Based on the JP-server and their events, this format of 33% GFE for 10 Magic Stones will become the norm so we will have to get on board at some point. Thus, the decision of whether or not to roll comes down to your own Monster Box and how well the line up can benefit you.
In addition to presenting the line up with commentary, I will also include a reaction table to the voting for various categories such as most surprising, most over-hyped, and more.
The Player’s Choice Godfest will feature the three new Fest Exclusives, Valkyrie – Ciel , Zeus – Giga , and Athena – Non . In addition, players are able to Monster Exchange a special token for any one of these three cards and this exchange should be done after rolling to avoid the possibility of acquiring dupes. More information can on the new Fest Exclusives can be found on my previous post HERE.
–video coming soon–
The Player’s Choice Godfest is split into two parts with each one lasting a week. While they technically feature the same monsters, the rolling rates for each part are different with the Highlights having 2x the rolling rates compared to non-Highlights for GFE.
Part 1’s Highlights will become non-Highlights in Part 2 and the reverse is true for the Non-Highlights in Part 1.
From the disclosed Rolling Rates, any GFE has a 33% chance of being rolled and even taking into account the inflated Magic Stone cost, it is more efficient compared to Vanilla Godfests (about 10-11% GFE for 5 Magic Stones).
Highlight GFE (1.5% each, 22.5% total)
*Ney and Cottons come evolved with each evolution having 0.3% chance
Highlight Pantheon (3% each, 39% total)
Non-Highlighted GFE (0.75% each, 10.5% total)
Non-Highlighted Pantheon (2.33% each, 27.96% total)
Highlight GFE (1.5% each, 21% total)
Highlight Pantheon (3% each, 36% total)
Non-Highlighted GFE (0.75% each, 11.25% total)
*Ney and Cottons come evolved with each evolution having 0.15% chance
Non-Highlighted Pantheon (2.33% each, 31.72% total)
Part 1 or Part 2?
For the most part, both Parts are quite solid overall as the voting was reasonable overall. With that being said, you should be rolling for what you can benefit from most. The difference in Pantheon rates is proportionally smaller compared to GFE so i would focus on the GFE pool you are interested in.
While it is usually best to follow your own intuition, there will be many players who are missing most of the featured cards. If this is your scenario, I would recommend rolling in Part 1 because it features better GFE and less bad Pantheons.
Part 1 features the two stronger Fest Exclusives (Valkyrie – Ciel and Athena – Non ) along with 4/5 Great Witches (7* GFE ). Generally speaking, 7* GFE have significantly lower rolling rates but become equal to their 6* cousins during special Godfests and being able to acquire them at a higher rate is wonderful. In addition, Cotton is still one of the most universally powerful subs available along with Part 1 Featuring better Pantheon cards.
Of course, Part 1 is not without faults and having as it does feature some less desirable cards and this is probably attributed to the fact that the list includes the top 25 Pantheon and GFE. In terms of less savory cards (in my opinion), Lugh is redundant considering there are so many Fujin -style actives now available and even featured in PCGF. In addition, Blue Sonia is eclipsed by Green Soina and Ryune along with Fenrir Viz being overshadowed by Sherias Roots .
On the otherhand, Zeus – Giga is the worst option for new players and is Highlighted in Part 2 along with Dark Kali , Gremory , and Eschamali having middling value at this point in time. Furthermore, only featuring 1/5 Great Witches and 1/3 new 7* Fest Exclusives already brings down the total value for Part 2. Furthermore, Part 2 includes the questionable Hino , Gilgamesh , Allatu , and the poorly aging Haku .
Thankfully, Part 2 does feature the stronger 6* GFE as Dark Metatron is arguably the best leader in the game along with the new Sherias Roots being a monstrous card. Furthermore, Part 2 does include Indra , Mori (bicolour haste for Ranking/farming), Arch Angel Lucifer , and Ganesha .
With all that being said, I am still more inclined to roll in Part 1 simply because it features more rare cards that are normally harder to acquire along with Part 1 having less bad Pantheon cards.
The following section is mostly for fun and is my personal opinion for which voted card wins a respective “award” for various categories. Each category has a separate division for Pantheon and GFE.

The Player’s Choice Godfest is a potentially strong event as it features North America’s most popular Pantheon and GFE cards. While some of the votes may be questionable, it is mostly attributed to the fact that the top 25 of each type was voted in. As a result, some cards are strange and we do not know who the bottom 5 were.
Regardless, any GFE has a 33% chance of being rolled and is a strong opportunity to acquire valuable cards.
Let me know if you plan on rolling and which voted cards would win Awards based on my above categories.
