Halloween REM Review and Analysis – October 2020

Introduction

The Halloween event returns to North America just in time for the spookiest day of the year and comes with various buffs and new cards within the Rare Egg Machine.

Generally speaking, Seasonal events tend to be quite lackluster to roll in as they usually feature tremendously old cards who have not seen any meaningful buffs for numerous years. Furthermore, these cards often populate the bottom rarity of these events while also being the most likely card to roll due to their inflated rolling rates.

As such, the majority of rolls will be lackluster and leads me to avoid rolling and using the Monster Exchange system if it will prove valuable.

Regardless of this, this article will outline the pros and cons for each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in the Halloween REM event.

Seasonal Ladies Egg Machine Overview

Introduction

Today marks the debut of a special Seasonal Ladies Egg Machine which features a wide array of cards from different events. One negative aspect of Seasonal events is that each Egg Machine is somewhat set in a vacuum in the sense that these cards are often not featured outside their respective events.

Thus, with the Seasonal Ladies Egg Machine, players are able to roll cards from Christmas, Halloween, and New Year’s all in one place. This is an interesting twist on regular Seasonal events while also preserving the 5-Magic Stone price tag.

While this may seem like a nice idea overall, the truth of the matter is the rolling rates are terribly top heavy along with the majority of strong rolls being at the 9 or 8-star rarity. Furthermore, not all of the strong Seasonal cards are featured here.

As such, this basically creates the same issue of all Seasonal events: top-heavy with pretty filler cards at the bottom.

With this in mind, I am not inclined to roll the Seasonal Ladies Egg Machine as none of these cards have received any form of buffs along with having minimal value at the bottom rarities.

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.
