GungHo Collab REM Review Review and Analysis – April 2021

Introduction

The GungHo Collab returns to North America once again but this time at a much later date relative to the JP server. This has significant Powercreep consequences as this event took around 4 months to arrive instead of the normal 2. I want to stress that the 2 month window for JP content is a guesstimate as nothing is guaranteed but being delayed by 2 additional months makes many of these cards feel “dead on arrival.”

To make make matter worse, the Monster Hunter Collab has a simultaneous release with JP which means we got significantly stronger cards much earlier than expected. This in turn makes many of the GungHo cards laughable by comparison.

As such, I feel that this is a relatively lackluster/underwhelming event as there almost no value at the bottom rarity along with the 6 and 7-stars often being inferior to other available options. As such, this can be an easy event to skip from a rolling point of view and maybe using the Monster Exchange to acquire a key card for your Monster Box.

Finally, I want to mention that this event is home to three cards who have an 18 turn Leader Swap ability. Owning one of these cards will be valuable for late game players as it does open up Leader Swapping strategies for WoC2 / Rank EXP abuse. As such, the value of these cards heavily hinges on your current game progression and what other Leader Swap options are available. For players who cannot take advantage of Leader Swapping, these will be relatively average cards.

GungHo Collab REM Review and Analysis – June 2020

Introduction

The GungHo Collab makes a return to North America and features 6 new cards to an already massive rolling pool. As a result, many cards will undergo a “rotation” in which several will be absent from any given GungHo Collab event.

This is probably to help alleviate the stress of having so many different characters and it is important to check the roster before rolling to ensure your key chase cards are present.

With that being said, this is a separate 6-stone that features a lacking bottom rarity which will comprise over 50% of the rolls which is saddening to say the least. As a result, it makes it much harder to justify rolling as duplicates are probably unwanted for the bottom rarity cards along with only one having modest value.

Regardless, this article will outline the pros and cons for each card within the GungHo Collab Egg Machine event to give players a better understanding of what each monster can do.

GungHo Collab Review & Analysis – February 2020

I will try to reply to all comments by Monday evening as I have my second of 4 all-day hospital procedure early Tuesday morning and the recovery time was around 36 hours last time. Hopefully this one provides more benefits

Introduction

The GungHo Collab is making a return appearance this coming Monday and features several new Weapon Assists for existing cards along with a new 7-star monster.

As a whole, this event is reasonable overall but I feel that it is starting to age badly. This may be the case for many other events as they may not have cards that help the Transform meta but can still help round out weak points in most Monster Boxes.

Another drawback is that the 5-star cards were added back into the event which further dilutes the overall value of this event.

This article will outline the strengths and weaknesses of the GungHo cards to give players an idea of what each card has to offer and whether or not it is worth their Magic Stones.

10 Magic Stone GungHo Collab Godfest Review and Analysis – January 2019

Introduction

Starting on Wednesday January 16, the GungHo Collab will return to North America alongside a special 10-Stone Godfest. This differs from the original debut of the GungHo Collab as players will be able to roll various other monsters for 10 instead of 6 Magic Stones. To “compensate” for the higher price, all rolls will come out at Max Level, +297, and fully Awoken.

These collateral benefits are largely wasted and are not justification enough for the inflated price, but even after adjusting for the higher cost, are still better value compared to vanilla Godfests.

As a whole, the GungHo Collab REM portion is reasonable for the average player but none of the cards dramatically shake up the meta and are more for niche uses. With that being said, the 7-star cards have received Limit Breaking and Super Awakenings which dramatically improve their overall viability.

This article will provide a review of all the REM cards within the GungHo Collab and you can use this information to help make a decision of whether or not rolling is a good idea. Cards such as Kuroyuri  and other GungHo Collab-related events will be discussed in a separate article.

Super Godfests have historically had a 33% rolling rate so it would not be surprising if the GungHo Collab Godfest mirrored that pattern due to the 10-Magic Stone cost.

Official rolling rates and line up can be found in game during the event.

GungHo Collab REM Review and Analysis – September 2018

Introduction

Monday marks the debut of the GungHo Collab Rare Egg Machine along with part 2 of the event. As a whole, the GH REM is reasonable, but not necisarily game breaking along with costing 6 Magic Stones per roll.

On the bright side, rolling rates for 6/7* are quite promising (total of 32% in JP) which is partially attributed to the sheer number of cards available. Finally, players will be able to utilize the Monster Exchange System to trade in for a 7* card of their choice.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses to help you make a more informed decision of whether or not to roll.
