Kingdom Collab REM Review

Introduction

The Kingdom Collab makes a debut in North America and comes with a 10 Magic Stone price tag. While this on the more expensive side, all cards feature Weapon Assists which can help offset the pain of rolling a bottom rarity. Furthermore, due to the fact that this is a debut event of a newer Collab, many of these cards feature the newer awakenings and are better suited towards current content compared to older machines.

With this in mind, I would be inclined to do at least 5 or so rolls (plus free Memorial pulls) as the chances of acquiring a duplicate are reasonably low due to the large rolling pool and the fact that we have never rolled this before. Continue reading Kingdom Collab REM Review

Illusionary Artists REM Review

Introduction

The Illusionary Artists are a GungHo owned event that features numerous event cards that are lumped together with the REM alongside a sprinkling of Godfest Exclusives (GFE). This means that the Artists event will return on a regular basis and it is not a far stretch to expect buffs, especially for the top rarity.

On the other hand, the rolling rates are abysmal as there is a strong likelihood that you will not even be able to roll an event card, let alone the top rarity cards who boast a 1% rolling rate. This can lead to frustration along with those top rarity cards being potentially difficult to team build for as they require 28 Skill Boosts Skill Boost to Transform which will be challenging for less developed boxes.

Yu Yu Hakusho Collab REM Review – February 2022

Introduction

The Yu Yu Hakusho Collab returns to North America with various buffs for existing cards along with four new monsters and Weapon Assists for everyone. This does grant the bottom rarity more value overall but at the same time, they are for the most part underwhelming.

As such, I feel that there is little motivation to actually roll in this event and instead take advantage of the incredible Monster Exchange rates. This is because all trades will only cost four 6-star Godfest Exclusives which is the lowest we can ever go. Furthermore, there is a strong chance many players have copious amounts of 6-star fodder available and can easily pick up any card that looks appealing.

Due to increasing wrist pains, I have only done the overview section and will go into more detail via the Video Commentary. Continue reading Yu Yu Hakusho Collab REM Review – February 2022

Prince of Tennis Collab REM Review – January 2022

Twitter Campaign

If we are able to get the above tweet to 10k likes, all players will receive a free 7/8-star card from the Prince of Tennis Collab.

Introduction

The Prince of Tennis Collab makes their North American debut and features a massive roster of cards who all sport 2 unique Weapon Assists . This gives all cards at least some value and for newer accounts who lack options, many of these cards can be meaningful.

Generally speaking, Weapon Assists tend to be Powercrept the slowest which can give many of these cards a longer shelf life compared to leaders who can tend to be rotated out on a much more frequent basis. With that being said, the Prince of Tennis Collab does not feature any notable leader along with the bottom rarity having much less value for more developed Boxes.

With that being said, I do feel that this Collab is worth at least several rolls due to the large rolling pool which should hopefully lower the chances of duplicates along with many of the 7/8-stars being tremendously valuable.

Due to continuing wrist pains, I have only done Pros & Cons for all the cards.

Christmas REM Review – December 2021

Introduction

The Christmas REM returns once again to North America and comes with festively dressed characters along with various buffs and evolutions for existing cards. In addition to this, there will be three new monsters to potentially acquire.

As a whole, this event is terribly top-heavy as 80.1% of the total rolling pool is comprised of 5/6-star cards who will provide nothing for even a modestly well developed account. This in turn leads me to believe that this is a Monster Exchange/IAP Orb Skin event as we currently have a lucrative Seasonal Super Godfest going on right now along with PCGF in the near future.

Both these Godfests are significantly better places to spend your Magic Stones and if I had to give a TLDR for Christmas, IAP/buy Xiahou Dun (maybe Osiris ), find a friend Menoa to pair with, Monster Exchange for Gremory if you need a stellar Fire Cleric, and maybe Exchange for Selica .

Due to continuing wrist pains, I have only done Pros & Cons for notable cards and skipped the others.

GungHo Collab REM Review – December 2021

Introduction

The GungHo Collab returns once again to North America and features a gigantic rolling roster along with various buffs and new cards to acquire.

Due to the fact that this IP is owned by GungHo, we can safely assume it will return on a regular basis which means the concept of FOMO (fear of missing out) should be lower as this event is featured several times per year.

This is important because we know Draconic Orchestra, Player’s Choice Godfest (PCGF), and possibly the Christmas REM are all on the way soon.

In addition to this, I personally feel that the GungHo Collab is becoming more of an Orb Skin event as the strongest cards featured here are Orb Skins which can be directly purchased via IAP, but cannot be Monster Exchanged for.

This can feel frustrating as Monster Exchanging is often the best practice when approaching a weaker event or an event where you have already rolled heavily.

Due to continuing wrist pains, I have only done Pros & Cons for notable cards and skipped the others.

Sanrio (Hello Kitty) Collab REM Review – November 2021

Introduction

The Hello Kitty Collab returns to North America for the first time in several years and features numerous buffs for existing cards along with new Kitties to chase.

As a whole, this Collab does not offer much if trying to tackle current end game content (SR2+/MD1+) but instead grants players numerous Farming tools that are truly excellent when used in Solo mode. This is because they provide numerous Dungeon Bonus awakenings which increases the drop chance and values dropped/earned at the end of the Dungeon.

Furthermore, players will have the opportunity to build the easiest to use Training Arena 3 team which is the best place to level up your Monsters (50M Exp per clear).

To sweeten the deal, the Monster Exchange costs are quite favourable as they only require five 6-star GFE which has become quite common for PAD Pass owners.

With that being said, the bottom rarity leaves much to be desired and rolling here may result in many sad but cute cards.

Due to continuing wrist pains, I have only done Pros & Cons for notable cards and skipped the others.

Yu-Gi-Oh Collab REM Review – August 2021

Introduction

The Yu-Gi-Oh Collab makes their second return to North America amidst a sea of buffs and new cards. As a whole, this event is home to a wide variety of valuable cards with the bottom rarity having value. In fact, I still use two of the 5-star cards (Kuriboh Weapon and Fortress Dragon ) and will most likely continue to do so moving forward.

As such, if you are a player who has never rolled in this event before, it is in your best interest to do so as it does feature unique cards with value sprinkled throughout all rarities along with Weapon Assists for all cards. On the flip side, there are no new bottom rarity cards which lowers the motivation to roll again if you have already done so in the past.

Due to continuing wrist pains, I have only done Pros & Cons for each card and did skip over underwhelming Weapons.

Star Weaving Fairies REM Review – July 29th, 2021

Introduction

The Star Weaving Fairies make their debut in North America and features a REM that shares a similar format as Sin Dragons/Mystics as the Event cards will be lumped together with other REM monsters.

Furthermore, there is no Monster Exchange option for any of the cards which means players will have to repeatedly pull in order to acquire any of the Event cards. As such, many Magic Stones will need to be spent but I would advise not rolling until we see the rolling rates for a special 9-Magic Stone Super Godfest that goes live on Saturday, July 31st.

With that being said, the Star Weaving Fairies features many powerful cards along with new top-tier leaders who will be able to tackle all content currently available.

Due to continuing wrist pains, I have only done Pros & Cons for each card and did skip over underwhelming Weapons.
