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.
