      Yep
      Trailer is meh
      but sign-ups are makes up for that

      So judging by this and the trailer, this engineer girl is part of the Belobog gang, which makes me think these

      spiky gang characters are not ready to be released. Probably gives them more time to change their designs before the official launch, the CCP probably doesn't like all that tiddy.

      - STINGY, despite making millions of $$$ per month from just chinese ios consoomers
      - no celebrations for real world festivals like christmas, halloween, or easter
      - no swimsuits, no fan service, barely any cosmetics or collabs or fun events that are not reskins of past events
      i am already not expecting anything from this game

            Sixth Street is the main hub, it's a urban area with random chinese letters here and there. This district is also where Random Play (the player's VHS shop) and the other stores revealed in those dripfeed marketing posts are located.
            Brant Street is a construction site based on that gamescom trailer, and the other revealed areas (Street Exit and Ballet Twins Road) also have urban-themed designs. So I guess we are safe from the fantasy chinawank for now.

                That actually would be cool, but Sixth Street is just a standard anime urban district (the one with clean streets, friendly cats and cute konbini cashiers instead of sociopathic prostitutes, actual murderhobos and overpriced blowjobs from russian girls who lost their passports).

                Yes, they can talk and both of them exist in the game (unlike Star Rail's protagonists or Genshin's eternally long-lost sibling). They also revealed some bits of their personalities (Wise is the calm and collected one and he likes drama and emotional movies, Belle is the happy-go-lucky one and she prefers fast-paced movies).
                That said,

                Hopefully, more view point characters than self-insert.

                I don't know if this will be different in later quests or in companion sidequests (or if they will rewrite the whole thing for CBT2), but in CBT1 the sibling you don't pick will become your sort-of Paimon while your MC of choice won't say much during cutscenes.. A non-issue if you are from Alabama (and I assume the average Themis enjoyer as well), but I can see the Kiara enthusiasts being disappointed with this format. NPCs never ignore (you) in dialogues, at least.

                The differences aren't that drastic since it's still the same story with the same reactions from the gacha characters and NPCs (at least in the main story), but they aren't copy-pasta twins and will say slightly different things according to their personalities.

                I don't disagree, but not all of them are like that. Most of the time they will say similar or pretty much identical lines (usually in straight-forward dialogues with NPCs in voiced cutscenes) since it's still the same story. Most of the time you will only see unique dialogue lines when they interacting with each other (like the previous pic and this one).
                That said, I haven't checked every single cutscene, side-quest and optional NPC interaction, just some moments from the CBT's main storyline.

      The fluid animations are one of the few things the devs actually put a solid effort into, those are probably staying. However, bits like in pic-related WILL be removed before the full release or post-launch, along with any and all exposed cleavage, including Nicole's. They'll reduce their size and either cover them up like here

          That's bullshit. Hoyo games are considered a "cultural export" by the CCP so they have tons of puritan commie inspectors who demands that they butcher their games so they look like they are doing a real job. That is the reason why hoyo games look great at first or when they are in the beta tests and then gradually gets worse.

          But hey at least they get unlimited funding in exchange.

      something along the lines of: 90 rolls for 5 star guarantee, 180 rolls for the banner 5 star guarantee, same with the weapon banner, and the character will need 6 more copies, the weapon will need 4 more copies

      IIRC, the gacha system wasn't even implemented in previous CBT, but we can assume they'll follow the current Genshin/HSR standard.

      i think some people already pointed it out in the previous zzz thread that got deleted now
      it definitely feels very different than the other hoyoslop games, but nice to see an actual confirmation that it is indeed made by a different team
      still, they already censored two characters, and we have yet to see how they flesh out this game with gameplay besides just meaningless daily log in and grind
      i am slightly hopeful since they already showed off arcade games and hangouts (dont know if these will be similar to character quests in genshin/star rail or the terrible "hangouts" in genshin)

      This is something we already knew long ago. Just by playing the first beta it was obvious this game was gonna be different in terms of visual style and setting. It still doesn't save it from CCP regulations though, we'll still get some form of the same chink wank present in genshin/star rail one way or another, just coated with an urban-themed setting which makes it more tolerable in my opinion.

                Because the game in question is a gacha game, and gachas need to hide player progression with a skinner box, not through gameplay. The reason people can play MH or Elden Ring or any single player RPG is because they allow you to play the whole game however you want, gachas need to entice you to roll for the characters/weapons or else be walled from "challenging" content.

                It was an example on how a more fleshed out combat can still feel fresh even with the same kind of content. Again, MHgays spend 1000+ hours doing the same shit in every single title of the series. With the same enemies too. Are they moronic? Probably, but it's unquestionable that the basic formula and combat of the series feels good.

        Never heard anything bad about ToT players (aside from the occasional worship cults in random anime coffee collabs), and the surviving GGZ players are banding together to recreate their game's nonsensical lore in a VN format so I assume they aren't wasting time sending death threats to each other over Sakura's multi-dimensional sexual preferences or trying to stab Mihoyo's employees to death because they saw a fanart of a american man having consensual sex with China's finest hag on not-twitter. The problem isn't Mihoyo being a tribal autism magnet, the problem is the "melting pot" philosophy in their newer games.

      I don't know why the thread keeps spamming "last beta was dogshit" when I've heard that they've added tons of stuff into it and people were happy, like the counters.
      Honestly, perfect dodges/counters sound already more fun than Genshin's. I haven't played HI3 though so I can't compare, all I can say is that HI3 looks like a clusterfrick of effects with no substance

      • 3 months ago
        Anonymous

        HI3 is loop-based. It's more involved than genshin's extremely simple system, but in the end nothing different. Just that specific ways of looping are time sensitive (qte swaps triggering based on conditions like "time slow", which some abilities like perfect dodges can trigger, and only being available for x seconds) and the swapping also has quite a CD. In other words, if you frick up, you get punished. Also creating a good loop is technically harder. Nothing stopping you from looking some up though.

        This looping is important to do, due to supports being relevant and rather heavily increasing your damage (again, unlike genshin). So you wanna loop through 2 supports in an efficient way to your main DPS who then benefits from the buffs and/or debuffs.

        Extremely simple example: Fischl can use her weapon attack to trigger her own qte, which in turn triggers time-slow (possibly enabling other qte of party members), and offers 40% lightning vulnerability on hit enemies for 15secs (time-slow slows this, or depending on what exactly does it may even completely pause these timers). Equipment can also further buff this. One of her sig stigma adds 20% on weapon hit, so you get a total of 60%.
        She also gets SP from doing so, and if you have enough you can fire a quick ult, which persists even if you swap her away, and amps ally lightning damage dealt by up to 55% for 18secs .
        I do not expect anything different for ZZZ. We'll likely get another loop based battle system, and shit like perfect dodges and counters are just there. They exist in HI3, but in an ideal battle, you never stop attacking.

          >but in an ideal battle, you never stop attacking.
          Didn't you just describe MH speedrunning autism?
          In Monster Hunter, you see speedruns and the hunter is just there taking shits on the monster and never stops attacking.
          The gameplay for 99% of the players is much different however, they have to put some effort into evading attacks or they just get destroyed if they try to deal more damage. It's also the same for speedrunners, as you only get to see the perfect run and not the one where the monster used the "evade this or die" attack.

          This "loop" thing you described seems what it will be though, the article mentions how you forcefully swap to a precise character and not one you want, so basically you have to craft the perfect team order to, I dunno, let one character weaken the boss first to let the bursty nutty super carry deal max damage.
          It's not a bad thing but I hope that counters and dodges are important. You can freely move around and dodge away from deadly attacks, but I think that to get fast clears you have to counter and dodge, since it also comes with extra attacks. So yeah, if you play perfectly you'll probably attack no stop.

      >no screenshots for the Ultimate
      Did I get that right or is Ultimate not a character thing but a party wide attack to be consumed? Kinda like the Limit Breaks in FFXIV.
      The Ultimate/Bursts of this game are the EX Skills (using skills when fully charged up)?

      There seems to be depth into the combat system honestly, I'm impressed. Gotta see if it means anything though, but even basic shit like "Perfect Dodges" seem something fun.

        >Kinda like the Limit Breaks in FFXIV
        Yeah, it's basically that. Everyone's attacks will charge the bar but only one character will use it when the bar is full (so you can't swap-ult-swap-ult-swap-ult).
        Ex skills are charged special skills but every character has their own special bar and they have to charge it on their own (character A's attacks won't fill up character B's special bar). Apparently there are no "cooldowns" (time-based) so you are free to use the uncharged special attacks.
        Perfect assists seems to be another party-wide bar like Ultimates, but you can save up to three charges instead of just one. You can charge it with chain attacks, and you get those by hitting enemies with "heavy" attacks (special/EX skills, perfect dodge attacks).
        The rotation of combos and quick-swapping characters for more combos until you detonate an ultimate seems to be pretty fun.

    Ok so to the gay asking for proof about Anby censorship here's a leaked tutorial video from more than a year ago. She used to wear a thong but Homoverse turned it into spats. So stop asking about it and stfu.

      Aside from the unfortunate thong being censored, 3 (THREE) whole buttons are the combat gameplay, Mihoyo really can't design shit.

                The majority of people don't have any issue with the few changes that have been made in ZZZ. If it bothers you that much, I don't see how modding ISN'T a solutionv- Genshin has a myriad of decensor mods like the ones that remove the climbing up skirt transparency or the swimming water ripple, or ones that make outfits a lot more revealing compared to their original designs. You don't get banned for them either as long as you don't parade your UID in modded screenshots.

                That's bullshit. Hoyo games are considered a "cultural export" by the CCP so they have tons of puritan commie inspectors who demands that they butcher their games so they look like they are doing a real job. That is the reason why hoyo games look great at first or when they are in the beta tests and then gradually gets worse.

                But hey at least they get unlimited funding in exchange.

                Personally the lack of fanservice isn't a deal breaker, I just want the game to stay as "urban" as possible in terms of visuals and style while not dipping too much into shitty chinkwank so we don't end with half the roster looking like a bland variation of pic related.

                The spats thing falls under the no-fanservice cuck CCP regulation which we have no choice but to cope with. However, the fricking over-designed asymmetrical flowery wienertail dresses with exposed shoulders/armpits and butt capes are the real boner killer here. If most of the leaked playable females end up looking like the purple c**t in pic related once the big ZZZ leake happens (pretty much guaranteed post-launch) then I'll just frick off to Mugen Project and GFL 2.

                Man I thought the HSR designs would keep going be more like the start of HSR, the moment I saw the massive leak and 0 of the characters got me interested and went "well at least since the maps are kinda cheap they will go fast to the next world" and yet still stuck on the worst notchina shit they have done.
                So far I like all the designs aside from the yellow fire girl, which it's surprising for me, hope they keep it like that.

                You mean in ZZZ? Yeah I also like almost all the current teased characters, with Billy and shark maido being my favorites so far. All they have to do is keep that up and give me reasons to roll for characters, I don't wanna end like in Star Rail where I haven't seen a single appealing design worth rolling for since Kafka's. It's either some homosexual or a chink c**t with the same dress code (With the occasional tolerable design like Topaz's or Lynx's.)

                That, and also because hoyohomosexual knows that their bland sfw designs are marketable to underages and normies both in China and the rest of the world, which means all these creative decisions are taken consciously in-house as well.
                >i doubt the other chinese gachas are following these cucked regulations
                This is also true, but only because the devs of these other gachas don't have that much notoriety nor want to sell to all demographics. You can take Snowbreak as a good recent example, they just released a summer event with the girls wearing spicy swimsuits and just having overall fun, also no males. They know exactly who their target audience is.

        Anon, one of them is a girl dripping with sex, and the other one is the personification of Japan being cooler than China. Both of these things are no-nos in the CCP. I didn't see either one of them in the trailer. It can only mean bad things

        It was an example on how a more fleshed out combat can still feel fresh even with the same kind of content. Again, MHgays spend 1000+ hours doing the same shit in every single title of the series. With the same enemies too. Are they moronic? Probably, but it's unquestionable that the basic formula and combat of the series feels good.

        There's a closed beta at the end of the month, we'll know if everything is getting giga censored or not

        I don't do web events. I played Star Rail for a little bit and I know that the daily log in bonuses don't exist in game, they wanted you to go to a website to do it. I dont do that. We are in 2023. I know they want the web traffic, but I'm not moronic enough to let them double dip like that. Just put the rewards in the fricking game, you israeli chinks. Anyway, as long as she still exists, I'm still interested in the game. I just didn't see her in the trailer so I logically assumed she got CCP'd

          The fox girl is absolutely not getting touched, she's completely covered already anyway. The big titted girl is probably fine or they would've censored her already, the web event has her caricature and hell it even emphasizes on her boobs. Pic related.

          And for the CCP thing, you're wrong, the CCP doesn't give a shit, all the censor you see in those games are self made by Mihoyo. There are infinite chink games with giant boobs in bikinis and no one cares.

            That's just the stereotypical cool Japanese character. But that's fine because they're gonna outshine her with an even COOLER cast of chink characters that truly personify China being better than the rest of the world. Trust the plan, because that's unironically their actual plan lol.

            Okay, well, MiHoYo is part of the CCP now, so it's the same thing regardless of which semantics you want to use for it. There are lots of people throughout history who have been fired, but in a official capacity were technically "resigned"

            >Anon, one of them is a girl dripping with sex
            Yeah and they can always just shrink her breasts, cover her cleavage, and make her shorts longer. There, ready to be playable at launch.

            I dunno man. I seriously played Star Rail for only a few months, and I already feel like I know MiHoYo. Why would they let a Japanese character look cool? They're going to spend 2 years wanking some notChina zone. If the fox samurai gets to stay in, she's probably going to be killed in lore

            I agree and disagree with this, I don't think it is not that they don't care rather it is hard to keep an careful eye on the 1000s of active live service games, which is why they appear to be more ruthless during approval processes than a year or two later after release, in fact I think devs over censor their games so that they can pass the approval like with Wuthering Waves which seemed to uncensor due to recent backlash implying that the censorship they were doing wasn't due to CCP mandates.

            This would be the first case where there's no chink characters at release though. Genshin had tons of Liyue characters, HSR had Xianzhou characters, can't say about Honkai 3rd.
            Unless a faction of chinks gets added before release I guess

            Also, for Nicole's breasts, I think nerfing them would hurt the image of the game really badly

              I wanna believe this too but I also don't trust Mihoyo to not be complete homosexuals. However, If you're right and Nicole makes it to launch with her sexiness intact, (which means that they won't be able to backtrack when people actually start spending money on Nicole) You get a free drawing request.

              I also heard about Mihoyo wanking Kazuha in a few Genshin events way after the Inazuma storyline was over. They can just do the same here but with the fox girl.

                I think that, if they want to go the censored route, they'll simply not release new characters with assets as big and exposed as Nicolle's and don't touch her. It's way easier and safer than basically nerfing the entire identity of a character (she's basically just breasts kek) who's one of the poster girls of the game and showing everyone you're scared of the big evil boobs.

          No that would be the AAA developers, they mostly rely on legacy IPs while keeping the weebs at arm's length. All Mihoyo did was take advantage of their allergy to the anime artstyle while marketing as hard as they do; if AAAs embraced the weebs as much as chinks did, Hoyo probably wouldn't be as popular as they are now. (Also keep in mind most Hoyodrones clearly only have AAA games and maybe FGO as a reference point)

            The Covid boost is real. I know of a particular group of vtubers that got boosted by that into the fricking peak because they merely debuted September 2020, just like Genshin's release.

            Now Mihoyo can enjoy all the fame Genshin gave them, completely repaid the mass shilling and production costs for the game and will forever sell their games like peanuts. ZZZ will also be a guaranteed major success and we don't even know a shit about.

    Am I the only one who thinks that having playable furries and robots decreases the amount of chink homosexuals Mihoyo can release? Just saying, if they're serious about omnipandering then we're likely to get 5-star furries and 5-star robots of both genders taking entire patches. And honestly I will take those over more gay cheng chongs from Liyue/Luofu

    the literal playable bear is actually very welcome since this means they are at least putting some effort into new bodytypes and their rigs instead of shitting out same-looking lazy crap they have been doing for genshit and shit rail despite making millions of $$$ per month from just chink ios players

      I don't give a shit about furry characters as long as it's not over the top or too common. For example, I enjoyed the Breath of Fire games back when that was a thing. However, hoyo already has a terrible fanbase. If you've been in any hoyo thread on /vg/, you'd be aware of this, and you will be potentially adding people like bronies into this already putrid mix

      The two ones they have are perfectly fine for me. If they add more, I hope they try different animals and not just mammals too. If they release some alligator dude he might unironically become my favorite character (I mained Renekton on LoL lol).

      But like you said, they seem to be putting effort with characters designs for once. As you mentioned, all Genshin and HSR characters look the fricking same to me.

      >has similar, if not the same playstyles as HI3 with the fast attack combos, QTE and dodge mechanics

      HI3 probably isn't going to die by the virtue of it being a Devil May Cry waifu game but with ZZZ around, I really doubt they'd gain new players for part 2 outside of a niche who are both into ARPGs and visual novels

      All they need to nail is boss encounters. People here mentioned how HI3 is just button smashing, never played the game but I imagine it's baby mode.
      In that interview, they also say they want to create a combat system that allows them to make fun bosses. We'll see.

              Boss actually aggro'd certain characters who had to do a mechanic to avoid the laser (stand on spot wow so hard.) Other players had to go to specific spots to disable stuff kinda like the fire/water crystals in signora, and then you all walloped for DPS.

        HI3 is more pattern based than button mashing, strict buff timers and backloaded effects (hit x times with normal attacks, get buffed move, ramping damage, e.t.c) means teams generally have 1 pattern you repeat over and over. Genshin also has this problem though to a far lesser extent, it's most prominent on Eula where you need to follow Bennet's burst with Eula's burst since the combined burst animation + 7s will cause her burst to explode outside of Bennet's buff.
        ZZZ will likely suffer the same problem unless they decide to make buffs long lasting/permanent to let you focus on move sets and enemy reactivity instead of cramming as much damage during the buffed periods.

          I see but what about the actual encounters, do you have to dodge and shit?

          What you mentioned is true on Genshin too and will be true on ZZZ too I guess.

            Bosses frequently do have invulnerability/damage resistant phases where you have to play their 15s long minigames (destroy x objects, dodge y projectiles, inflict z ailments, e.t.c) but outside of the gimmicks, not really.
            You can blame the backloaded effects on that, no one wants to be staggered mid combo so the game has way way too many short lasting invulnerabilities for the player when doing shit.

        HI3 actually has a good gameplay mechanic and a genuine attempt at bringing ARPG to mobile and gacha. It was really a pioneer that a to of gacha wouldn't be the same without it, from Punishing Gray Raven to that Devil May Cry gacha game (lol). Hell, DMC has copied a lot of Hi3's mechanics that it might as well be a Honkai Impact reskin

I've seen both male and female NPCs for almost all of these races (bears being the exception, no pics of females but I'm sure they exist). There is also Soukaku, but I didn't find any pics of oni NPCs.
                I don't know if a giant fish using a dead cat as a helmet will become playable, but I think the sheep girl is a possibility.

        Not surprising that energy regen and energy regen rate sound like some of the most important stats besides Crit Rate/DMG. if PEN works like any other defense ignore mechanic in genshin/star rail then that's probably the best stat of the game.

      >elemental damage affects damage over time's effectiveness
      >fighting style damage affects daze/impact's effectiveness (according to CBT1 players)
      >some sort of resonance system for both elements and fighting styles
      Depending on how it works (if they didn't change the CBT1's stagger mechanic), I can see the meta meme being about making teams with a single element and two or three different fighting styles.
      Personally I will probably just use shark dragoon, katana fox and tiny oni, and brute-force my way to the consolation prizes.

      wasnt the oni girl some other element besides these two? she also specializes in two fighting styles

      Soukaku's element in CBT1 was Wind, but I guess they replaced it with Ether.
      And yeah, she can deal both slash (normal/dash attacks) and impact (special/EX/combo attacks) damage.

      when is the beta?

      It's a mystery. I assume we will hear something about it this week since the last time-limited invite giveaway ended two days ago (the social media giveaways, the sandwich and slots minigames will be available until the end of the CBT2).

        like the change since wind seems overdone now
        the physical icon should be changed though since it looks so similar to the ice icon
        but her having two fighting styles feels concerning for the powercreep in the future of this game

        • 3 months ago
          Anonymous

          Maybe she will get a rework in CBT2 since Wind isn't a thing anymore, but if they decide to keep her this way then I assume specialized characters will perform better than hybrid ones.
          There are other cases of character with different fighting styles, but they are unique and minor cases. Anton, for example, can deal a bit of strike and slash, but the core of his moveset (explosive stance and piledriver attacks) are pierce attacks, and Corin can deal a bit of strike with one of her attacks, but she the rest of her kit is slash damage.
          Also, there is a game mode where you start with a single character and have to find others along the way. I don't know how it works exactly (I think the randomly-found characters are pre-built/guests based on some gameplay videos), maybe hybrids will shine in places like this.

              Anonymous

              Every dungeon works like a "roguelike mode" of sorts.
              Some stuff is similar to SU:
              >pick one out of three buffs
              >read a mini-story and make a few choices (with rewards/penalties, but it's straight-forward stuff like "you found a scavenger selling mystery drugs")
              >room where you need to kill enemies (sometimes you have to follow a set of rules/gimmicks, like a timer or having to protect certain objects/areas in the combat arena)
              >shop room, buy things with dungeon currency
              >HP recovery rooms
              >you can use map/exploration skills
              >spooky boss at the end
              Some stuff is different:
              >top-down grid-based map system, each space in the grid (represented by TV screens) is a room that may be empty, have some event or a combat encounter in them
              >exploring non-emtpy rooms will accumulate corruption points ("pressure") .This corruption will eventually level up and create up to five permanent debuffs (they can affect your combat performance, like energy drain, or your dungeon exploration, like money drain)
              >some rooms and events can reduce pressure as well, sometimes it's free, sometimes you have to pay for it
              >some rooms have an UNKNOWN tag, which means they can have anything, including empty rooms (you still accumulate pressure even if you find nothing)
              >the map isn't always fully visible in dungeons, some rooms will only be revealed if you approach them or find a "search event" room (a bit like search skill checks in roguelikes)
              >some specific maps have a few gimmicks, like switches to open doors, portals teleporting you around or or big areas where you have to either chase and kill enemies to progress or avoid enemies and run straight to the exit (works like a roguelike: you and moving enemies take turns at the same time)
              I expect the actual equivalent to SU will be a bit more straight-forward than all of that, but it would be neat to get a new whole dungeon to explore after every reset.

                this gameplay looks even better due to having some other variety in content besides combat and occurence events

              It's mandatory for them to shill their bland culture through chinkwank characters though, so we will have some chink banners and some sort of urban "chinatown" sooner or later. I just hope their designs fit the setting and they don't look EXACTLY like the chinks from genshin and star rail. Just look at pic related

              All they have to do is not be creatively bankrupt, or if they must, at least balance out the roster so most of it isn't full of bland chink b***hes and gays.

              On the other hand, a simple china girl desing like this one fits ZZZ a lot better than the slop they've been pumping in their other games for the past years.

                Yeah if they keep the same character designer honestly I wouldn't be too much worried, character design has been great from what we have seen

                Also the end of the robot trailer makes me hope for some good music too, that rap bit was pretty cool, wouldn't love to beat the shit out of enemies with Persona 3 like music

        This is how every dungeon works in the game. Easier dungeons don't have everything mentioned in the "mechanisms" and "threat" topics, and docile/golden bangboos are also uncommon, but everything else (corruption, resonia, resources, hollow raider encounters, etc) is standard stuff.

      I have never meet a gacha that does 'roguelikes' good, the gamechanging parts are replaced with lots of just damage multipliers and reducers, and skill check have to get replaced with a dps check with some type of timer, plus that you have to still do it after you have beaten the harder floor makes it get too stale for its time consume.
      Also I don't know how important this is, or if it has a timer, maybe you can get to the final floor with barely any upgrades, or maybe the gameplay makes for it... I didn't want to get spoiler that much last cbt but ig this time I will have to since this is the only shit in the game that I'm doubtfull

        the store also has a desk with information on gameplay tutorials, agent (playable characters in the hollows) details, and other info related to the hollows (similar to the index from star rail's simulated universe)
        the sofa allows players to "kill time"; what purpose it achieves is yet unknown
        the commission log has video recordings of important commissions (possibly an archive of story-related cutscenes for stages that have been completed by the players)

Neither the post you replied to, nor anywhere in the reply chain or the topic at hand did anyone say they were against all censorship, you're just assuming that when the complaint is clearly about a female character being censored and there's nothing wrong with caring only about that, especially when talking about this specific game where furries will already be treated like trash by the majority of others because again, people only care about themselves, welcome to being human.

      The Chinese have never made a good game.
      Chinese games fall into generally two categories. Complete rip offs that are fairly mediocre but owe most of their design choices to what other development studios spent decades learning. That's ZZZ.
      The other category are mostly objectively 3/10 games that people play because they're absurd and often totally alien to people that they have a novelty factor about them. A good example is Amazing Cultivator Simulator.

            CCP also approved of Snowbreak's fanservice so the crucial creative choices must be taken within Mihoyo, aka the gays that have the real creative control, which once again begs the question: Why is the dev team bothering with a fanservice character if they know all the effort is gonna be scrapped before it even reaches the CCP's office? There's no way they glanced at HSR and Genshin and then said "It's okay guys trust me the big breasts will make it."

              TV writers in the 90s often included deliberately over-the-top raunchy jokes that the censors would catch and remove to let the actual, relatively tame raunchy jokes they wanted to include slip by. Might be something like that.

                You misunderstand. The idea is that the designs that are initially shown (i.e. Nicole) are made deliberate lewd to bait censors. When the CCP censor takes the bait, they replace it with the actual intended design.
                If Nicole gets nerfed again then this idea is obviously not correct, but I could buy it with where Nicole's at in Beta 2.

            This would have been some 4D chess kind of move but sadly they marketed Nicole as a semen demon for a whole year's worth of trailers and showcases at conventions and expo's, damage is already done.

              It's really not. That was actually standard practice in the American TV industry since like the 80s— you can find interviews from the Simpsons and SNL writers decades ago talking about how they'd put in blatantly sexual jokes so the innuendo stuff would fly under the radar by comparison.
              If you're dealing with someone whose job is to make arbitrary changes, giving them an easy target so you can keep the stuff you actually like isn't too big a leap of logic. Obviously the culture in China is different than the west, but I'm sure SOMEONE at Mihoyo has at least had the idea.

                Yeah you're right, that's not a special method when producing an IP, generally speaking. I probably saw that as a big-brain move just because of how cucked Chink developers are in terms of creative freedom.
                > I'm sure SOMEONE at Mihoyo has at least had the idea
                If Nicole isn't nerfed even more before launch then I'll also believe this to be the reason.

                That's basically what I meant, like you can't roll the same (wrong) s rank twice at least with pity rolls.

      worse since you can't target farm specific sets anymore, you get them by clearing a mission that gives you currency, then you spend that currency to gacha for artifacts in one big pile

    For the others that are in the beta how are you enjoying the combat/exploration?
    I'm finding the combat okay with the characters I've gotten so far, feels like you will want a ranged character in general but man the exploration is already starting to get to me.

    • 3 months ago
      Anonymous

      I had kinda low expectations and didn't even know much at all about the game but I'm actually kinda digging it honestly. I knew the combat wouldn't be really deep, it's decent for what it is and what I expect from it (quick 20-30 min session once a day or so). The animations are nice and punchy, satisfying even though it's mashy and pretty shallow. Having a ranged agent does seem nice, but one thing I found was having a character that closes gaps fast feels really good.. Anton and Nekomata worked well for that. I had no idea about the HDD exploration stuff before playing and I actually kinda like it, just quick little puzzles between packs of mobs. Ratio of combat to exploration definitely feels like it needs improvements early on but it sounds like it's not nearly as bad later on from what I've read, also that the combat difficulty goes up quite a bit in the ""rogue-lite"" mode. I'm kinda a sucker for things like how cozy the hub is and the worldbuilding type stuff like with the commercials on the log-in screen and stuff.
      Went from just signing up for the beta for shits and giggles to see what Ben's game is about to planning on actually playing it casually when it comes out. Not enough to pay anything for it though.

        I'd say I'm leaning towards enjoying it more than I'm not. I've finished the current story as far as I can tell so just slowly unlocking stuff.
        I agree with the combat, my comment on the ranged character was mostly to avoid triple hit combos from bosses fully depleting your character swap counter, though I did find you can swap characters without consuming them and let long animations like Ben's normal 3rd hit fully play out.
        I've had absolute shit luck on the gacha so far and haven't landed even a single s rank so I've only been playing with just the A ranks so far.

          Same. I haven't really looked at the stats but how much stronger are the S ranks over A anyway? I assume at least the majority of the content of the game would be fine with A rank so I really don't care about that so far. Bummed I haven't pulled Von Lycaon to show off though, really makes me think how frustrating actual release will be starting over and trying to get Ben and any other agents I want down the line. I really don't understand how gacha games got this big, how do so many people tolerate this?

            >I haven't really looked at the stats but how much stronger are the S ranks over A anyway?
            Funny enough I had enough to do a 10 roll on the normal banner and got a srank there.
            I'm going to compare her against Anton as they both are mode shifters, key thing to note on 11 vs Ant is the former gets stacks for her mode shift through burst and the swap action while Ant only gets it from his burst and that chews down slowly.
            Overall it looks like a 10%~ increase in base stats and about the sameish for skill%s?
            In play she feels more like a s-rank Anby but also I can feel the difference in power pretty obviously as well.
            >I really don't understand how gacha games got this big, how do so many people tolerate this?
            Brain rot I guess? I've played varying gachas for like ten years now and I am currently actively playing two (AK/HSR) and I get fun in the collecting and the weird puzzle aspect or putting teams together for stuff. Also lets me "safely" gamble.

            It boils down to what kind of poison you like. Live-service games with microtransactions are inherently awful but they also have something to "bait" players into spending time and money on them. For gacha in particular, it's the pretty anime characters. And to be mihoyo-specific, their gacha games are the best-looking ones currently in the market.

    Praying modders can fix this mess eventually. It's not just that there's censorship, but the designs are just fricking worse now.
    In the wise words of Kevin Garnet, why would you show me something if I can't have it? (or at least a decent equivalent).
    Only other hope is Mihoyo keeps the uncensored stuff in global and doesn't frick it up for future content but that's pretty unlikely to happen.

      I'd like to know this as well.
      Also curious if the "Agent Bundles" you get in the beta will be a thing in the full release.. there's one at level 10 to pick an A rank agent and one at level 20 to pick an S rank agent. You receive them in your mail if you haven't seen them. I guess I kinda doubt they'll be in the full release since the name of the item is "*Equalizing Test* A-Rank Agent Bundle" but maybe other Hoyo games have distributed selector bundles in the full release?

          Is it the same in other Hoyo games where you want to pull the same character multiple times to unlock more of its kit though? Like I selected Von Lycaon from the bundle but I'd still need to actually pull him from the banner like 6 times or something to actually fully unlock and juice his toolkit.

                Core Skills (the tape deck part to the right of the A-F things on the Skills page) are upgraded with Dennies but gated by character level.

                Yeah if you've played Star Rail or Genshin (seems like you haven't) whenever you roll a dupe of a 4 star or higher character or weapon you earn shop currency to buy dupes of 4 star characters or weapons or a 5 star weapon for all the Standard Banner characters (Von Lycaon, Nekomata, Koleda, Grace, Soldier 11, Rina). Obviously you would rather use this currency to buy extra pulls when buying a limited character, but if you're truly dead set on maxxing out Ben you can max him out like this (do note you can only buy 1 copy of a 4 star character in the shop per month).

                Just something to keep in mind for official launch!

                I really wouldn't recommend getting too hung up over fully maxing a character in a gacha especially if you don't want to drop money on it.

                >just buy dupes
                wait what, that's an option?

                Yes, assuming you have shit luck and only do ten rolls that give you 1 A rank and 9 B ranks you can buy a single A rank every 100 rolls.
                That does mean you may not be buying the discounted gacha rolls with the same currency or the upgrade material that both reset every month.
                This is also a single copy of whatever two A ranks they pick that if we assume goes by how they are doing in Star Rail hasn't seen a repeat character yet and also only changes stock every two months.

                The dupe system for Homoverse's games is the worst in the industry and nobody likes it but you also don't have to mald over fully unlocking a character's kit to clear all the endgame. Other gacha are way more generous but you're obligated to gamble and roll dupes or else you're filtered from hard content or you're stuck with worse farming efficiency than the whales.

                Yeah, through a scarce premium currency that's only reliably obtained by pulling the gacha constantly. (You're also malding over RNG drops from most farming resources which makes raising characters painfully slow)
                >this is a problem?
                For people who want to be efficient and make the most out of events like lotteries? Yes. That was my experience in FGO with NP looping being meta and all that (at least that was the case when I played, maybe things changed now idk).
                Hoyohomosexual doesn't have these issues and you can clear all content at 0 dupes until EoS but in exchange their gacha system is the worst ever. (which again, nobody likes, it's just dumb to see newbies get shocked that they ""must"" roll dupes here when the entire gacha genre is known to be this awful before Genshin came around.)

                I've dropped both BA and FGO but from my own experience i never need to roll the gacha for the sole purpose of dupe. In BA I managed to always get rank 1-10 on my PVP bracket everyday and Platinum'd every raid while being f2p and only used the "scarce premium currency" to earn dupe. In FGO i managed to clear all the content while being a massive lucklet f2p with only NP1 on 99% of my few SSR. I also have more than 100 unused gold apple when i quit because there's no point to farm that hard when there's no PvP (dunno about now).

                Maybe if you went more than half a year of not clearing hard content until you scrapped enough eleph to put together some UE30 teams? But until then you're not clearing any insane/Torment raids as "f2p"
                >there's no point to farm that hard in FGO when there's no PvP
                There is and that's called raising your servants, which is the whole point of FGO, endless farming for the sake of raising your PNGs and you want to be efficient about it (which is why NP-looping is meta, which also requires servants beyond NP1.)

                lol no, i platinum'd all raid from the start of JP server up to when i dropped the game around sHoshino banner. You don't even need to clear Insane for the first few raid after it came out. It's definitely possible to achieve if you're a day 1 player and not a massive lucklet.
                >Implying you didn't outright use all the eleph you got from rolling all your pyroxene on your waifu.
                Gacha rolls are scarce if you're f2p. Sure the game are more generous than most other gacha but it's not to the point where i can just carelessly roll on every banner or when i needed a dupe.

                >There is and that's called raising your servants
                That's not pvp and you don't need to have the most efficient team to clear anything.

                >You don't even need to clear Insane for the first few raid after it came out
                Yeah but my whole point is about clearing said difficult content (Insane and the brand new Torment difficulty.) Yes, it's optional, but you can't ace it without multiple dupe-enhanced teams geared specifically for those raids.
                It's definitely possible to achieve if you're a day 1 player and not a massive lucklet.
                Also true, which is why I said how you have to take a long while to strengthen your account as a f2p until you can tackle insane and torment. It's OBVIOUS that early f2p players become gods after a year of playing, I'm one myself.
                >it's not to the point where i can just carelessly roll on every banner or when i needed a dupe.
                Rolling for your waifu is never a careless move though, (or anniversary banners where drop rates are doubled). And again, all the eleph you get from that go straight to "dupe enhancing"

                >That's not pvp and you don't need to have the most efficient team to clear anything.
                You need efficiency if you like to raise servants regardless of content though, a lot of players just like upgrading them for the sake of it. I understand if it makes no sense to you though.

                I meant mostly in unlock but I am realizing for ZZZ you are actually very correct.
                In star rail it's really just been enhancing the kit overall but not locking a buff state (Anby) behind dupes.

    For the fellow that really likes Ben you may want to try and get the lil bear girl. Turns out they do tag team attacks.

      lol there's definitely more than one of us
      Definitely good point though. Not only does the ultimate get more powerful and have a cool combo animation with Ben, even the final hit of her normal attack combo does too. Not sure exactly how much stronger they are.
      Coincidentally I just pulled Koleda like an hour ago. When I played her in the story I didn't like the movement she had with some of her attacks, felt like I was whiffing sometimes. I'll give her a better look to see if that feels worth it, might be at least be good to pull her out for tougher hollow zero runs.

      Gotta say I really dig this game despite thinking gacha is some of the most moronic shit I've ever seen.

        >Not sure exactly how much stronger they are.
        10%-22%. Varies on normals vs special vs ultimate.
        >felt like I was whiffing sometimes.
        I've seen some stuff whiff but not too badly. Her skill is ultra short range and dumps her backwards which is a touch awkward, but Ben is slow as balls so I don't think it's too bad.
        >Gotta say I really dig this game despite thinking gacha
        I'm kinda soso on it? The combat can be fun but too often it's just hella easy or you get dumped with oddly annoying bosses like the invisible teleporting one.

          A lot of the game so far definitely is kinda stupidly easy but that's why I'm not worried about optimizing a team as much as including Koleda when I'm not a fan of her or her moveset etc (though those team-up attacks are really cool and flavorful). It's a casual as hell beat-em-up, I'm not looking to sweat or rack my brain over a mobile gacha game (not trying to assume or imply that of you or what you're saying just describing my expectations of the game). I felt by the time I was in chapter 3 the difficulty was getting closer to appropriate, same for further into hollow zero. Obviously it doesn't compare to the depth or replayability of DMC/Bayonetta but it still scratches the arcadey action combat itch for me, which is nice since I've had nothing to fill that void since Sega dumpstered PSO2. The art direction, atmosphere, animations etc definitely help a ton.. the game looks and feels great. Even if I try to set aside furhomosexualry I love that the character designs aren't going to be so formulaic and boring with a hundred flavors of 130lb generic anime girl/boy, it feels like they're allowing themselves big design space for a really interesting and varied roster especially accounting for potential team synergies and stuff.
          Kinda just stoned and thinking aloud after finishing up the main story content in the test, sorry for blogposting in a reply.

            Oh yeah and sorry to double post but one thing I kinda feel like mentioning is the tv board hollow gameplay... it seems fairly unpopular with a lot of people and I can definitely understand why, but I actually like the sorts of puzzles they've made with it personally so that probably adds to me having a warmer impression than some. Hollow zero does have a much better ratio of tv:game and rally commissions leave it out completely as far as I know/remember, but I enjoy solving the puzzles in main and side commissions.

              Koleda needs Ben and not the other way around. With Ben she's on par with Solder 11, without she's weaker.
              I generally get where you are coming from when it comes to optimization and whatnot, but I haven't seen this games version of the abyss/mirror etc to see how much it really wants very strong teams.
              I also feel you on PSO2 being fricked. Loved the game, wanted to love ngs and it just doesn't hit the spot the base games advanced classes did.
              >board hollow gameplay... it seems fairly unpopular with a lot of people
              Yeah I'm one of them. It's not even the puzzles it's just how fricking slow it all is, step on a even square and it's going to take 5+ seconds for the event animation plus the event itself to play out. It's bad enough imo that even simulated universe in star rail feels faster.

                Oh yeah absolutely, a lot of the dialogue and stuff inside (and out) of the hollows takes a loooong time to display and clear too. And God forbid an event tile or something like that is in a path you'll take multiple times, or you need to use a reset button within a puzzle, feels like minutes of your time wasted. There's also a ton of repeated dialogue and instruction in the hollows, like you'll have an NPC describe something to you, then you get to a tile and the Fairy or the game will describe the same damn thing to you, maybe in slightly different words. I don't mind taking extra time to hear dialogue and stuff (once) but really hope they speed a lot of this up.

                I hope so too. It's just kinda all over the game where it just feels like it's taking forever to load assets, even some really basic ones.

      'teaser' keyword there, no matter how jumpy they make her demo, her animations in-game are still rigid as hell, must admit that teaser reaffirmed why I liked her much, I don't like to appear to be stubborn, just gonna wait to see actual gameplay from players after release.
