Heroine REM Review and Analysis – November 2019

Introduction

The Heroine Rare Egg Machine will be returning to North America once again while providing various buffs to several cards along with new Weapon Assists for five of the 6* cards.

While this does sound nice, this event may be skipped by many players due to how many times it has come around and no one wanting a seventh duplicate of a 5-star card.

This is the exact situation I am in as I have heavily rolled in this event the first couple of times it came around and despite never acquiring a 7-star card, I have no interest in pursuing them. This is not because they are weak, but the 10-Stone cost combined with me owning numerous copies of almost every 5-star card will result in countless wasted rolls. Furthermore, the 5-star cards were once unique and strong but have now become somewhat Powercrept by newer and flashier options.

As a result, the motivation/desire to roll may be lower, even for new players as fewer cards at the bottom rarity stand out like they did in the past.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses to give players a better understanding of what each card can do for their Monster Box.

Fist of the North Star Collab REM Review & Analysis – November 2019

Introduction

The Fist of the North Star Collab will be making a triumphant return this coming Monday, November 18. This comes as a bit of a surprise as it has been several years since the last time this Collab returned and essentially every cards has been buffed/reworked to help them keep abreast with today’s cards.

This is a 5-Magic Stone Rare Egg Machine which is home to one of the strongest leaders in the game: Raoh Raoh. Raoh is the premier Fire leader we have been waiting for as he offers built in Follow Up Damage and can create an abusive System to clear end game content.

While this is exciting, the Collab as a whole features many weak cards and the 5-Stone cost somewhat works against them. Furthermore, due to the fact that Raoh is classified as a 7* card, he will require five, not four Trade Fodder to Monster Exchange for.

This article will cover the strengths and weaknesses of each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in the Fist of the North Star Collab REM.

Samurai Showdown Collab REM Review & Analysis – November 2019

Introduction

The Samurai Showdown Collab will be making their debut appearance this coming Monday after a content-packed NA stream on Friday.

While the prospect of gaining new cards is always exciting, it comes at a time when we are heavily saturated with content that demands our Magic Stones. This is because the Stream also announced a return of the buffed Heroine series along with Fist of the North Star. The exact dates for these events are unknown but are coming soon.

Furthermore, there is a 24h 7-stone Super Godfest which has appealing rates and 1.5% chance for the 7% GFE.

With that being said, the Samurai Showdown Collab is one of the higher value events due to every card having value. This is exemplified by all cards coming with a Weapon Assist along with many having unique kits that are hard to replicate elsewhere.

This article will cover the strengths and weaknesses of each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in the Samurai Showdown Collab REM.

Power Rangers Collab REM Review & Analysis – October 2019

Introduction

The Power Rangers Collab is the second NA-exclusive event and is a significant improvement compared to Voltron. Despite the 10-stone cost, many of these cards are powerful or possessing kits we have no way of replicating. In addition to that, every card has a Weapon Assist which helps provide merit to most Monster Boxes.

In fact, I plan on rolling a modest amount in this event due to the plethora of useful 6-star cards I could acquire. Furthermore, the fact that it is a new event should help in avoiding dupes, at least initially.

Regardless, this article will cover the strengths and weaknesses of each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in the Power Rangers REM.

Halloween REM Review & Analysis – October 2019

Introduction

The Halloween REM returns to North America in time for this spooky day and also means we are receiving this 2-3 months ahead of “schedule.” This is because we are having this event at essentially the same time as the JP server which is exciting to say the least. Furthermore, there have been numerous buffs across all rarities along with new cards and evolutions.

Not only can we partake in the hype of new changes, but we are in theory receiving stronger cards ahead of schedule. This can be important for players who are pushing through challenging content as they are able to potentially gain irreplaceable tools.

With that being said, NA faces a unique problem in that we do not know what Power Rangers Collab will hold as it will be a debut event in the near future. This has the potential to range from amazing to lackluster and everything in between.

Regardless, this article will cover the strengths and weaknesses of each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in this year’s Halloween REM.

Male & Female Hunter Review – November 2019

Introduction

The Monster Hunter Collab is in full swing and one of the more exciting features is the inclusion of the Male and Female Hunters. These cards are able to be evolved into a total of 12 distinct evolutions while also having the option of exchanging either 3 Evolved Male/Female Hunters for a Super Hunter.

This article will provide a brief summary of what each Hunter does and where how they can be used along with advice on whether the 3 Super Hunters are worthwhile.

One thing to keep in mind is that none of the Hunters have received buffs which potentially lowers their overall value as they will have  harder time keeping abreast with current options. Furthermore, these are free/farmable cards so their power is kept in check.

Acquiring Hunters

During the current Monster Hunter event, players will receive one base Male Hunter in the mail and an earn an additional Male and one Female from clearing the Monster Hunter dungeons. As such, some players will be in possession of several Hunters. In addition to these free Hunters, each base form can be purchased for 200,000 Monster Points. These Hunters will only be available if players did not login/clear the dungeons last time as none of these were reset outside of a free Female Hunter.

Monster Hunter Collab REM Review and Analysis – October 2019

Introduction

The Monster Hunter Collab will be returning to North America for the third time in 2019 on Monday, October 7. This may feel like a bit of an overload, but it is one of the single best events to roll in for the vast majority of players.

This is because it is home to some of the most valuable Weapon Assists in the game along with tremendous value at the 5-star rarity. This helps lessen the pain of rolling a Gold Egg as some are chase cards due to their Weapon Assists and 60% resistance to Blind Blind Resist, Jammer Jammer Resist, or Poison Poison resist mechanics.

On the other hand, more veteran players may have less desire to roll as they may have already acquired most/all the 5-stars along with numerous dupes. This can make it challenging to continue rolling if already saturated.

The following article will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of all the featured REM cards to give players a better understanding of whether or not Magic Stones should be spent. With that being said, if you have rolled little or none at all thus far, it will almost always be a good idea to do so now.
