Hype for May 11th

Hi Everyone,

I've been tagged in a lot of comments about disappointment concerning the repeat Bahamut raid. I apologize for not responding right away. (I've been traveling.)

I know for veteran players, this week is not meeting your expectations, but I'd like to assure you that May won't be a disappointing month. Here's why:

  • Something that everyone's been waiting for will be released on May 11th.

  • We have more good bundles on the way. :D

  • New stuff is coming. (I have to be vague here, sorry.)

We are still working on getting the right balance between providing challenging content for the veteran players without scaring off the newer players. In the meantime, please continue to voice your thoughts on Reddit because I do cite my sources when I report feedback to the team.

And just as a reminder, if you have any questions you'd like to submit for the Q&A on the FFBE Updates Videos, post your question in the comments of the most recent Updates video on the Official FFBE YouTube. This is part of how we select questions for the videos.

Thank you!

~~

do you know if there are any plans to 'catch up' on the Trial backlog? after all, those releasing later relative to unit releases sort of makes them easier than they should be.

This would have saved my sanity last night as I was at ~2800/410 units and was just fusing raid summons into each other for TMR's for about three hours.

I'd also love to have cactuar fusing. In JP you can fuse cactuars into each other, and this does several things. Frees up space, each cactuar fuse can hit the bonus exp, and you can make "level up" cactuars that have the exp needed to get from level 1 to max for a given star level.

After spending two days fusing raid summons before the game would allow me the "privilege" to play it again, I can't stress enough how much this is needed.

The other thing is a drag bar for raid and friend point summons; just like buying items. There is really no point in limiting it to 10K. Just let us summon the amount we want to (in most cases, all of your coins). Sitting there waiting for ~50 summons is an exercise in tedium.

As long as raids & raid summons are a thing this will always be a problem until it is addressed. Basic game design principles: Always work to remove the things that are not fun and replace them with things that are fun.

This ^

The current raid feels like a step back too as we are limited to 5k coins per summon too.....sigh

One of the top requests from players will be implemented possibly as early as May. There is no official announcement yet because the timing is not final. I know for sure Redditors will rejoice! "We are considering it" has turned into "We are definitely doing it." :D

This was from his (her? IDK) post two weeks ago. Sounds like a QoL thing to me. Reading it in isolation, it could be a collab, but going back to the post from 2 weeks ago, there's a separate bullet point for the June collab, so the quote above is probably not referring to a collab. It does not sound like something already implemented in JP.

She still holds her innocence, which in turn gives her greater power. As we all age, our sense of wonderment and unabated ability to hold on to true hope begins to diminish, and with that, our ability to call on pure faith for power rots away. Rydia as a wee tot still has these indomitable traits, which gives her the strength and will to overcome any trials and tribulations. Just think of Son Goku's naivete and Power ᕙ(⇀‸↼)ᕗ

Thanks for the heads up, Elytra! I can't wait to see what the new stuff is!

Though I am more concerned why we are getting a repeat on the Bahamut raid rather than the fact that we are getting one. Do you know why we are getting repeated events that are taking up a week rather than adding new content/summons? These kinds of weeks just seem like "filler" weeks though I don't understand what they are "filling" for.

Furthermore, do you know if this is going to be a thing from now on and how often should we expect it? Sorry for asking a lot of questions like this but I'm still not a fan of repeating content that gives very little to "veteren" players but not repeating content early enough for most players to benefit from it.

In Japan they've been rerunning MK events. It helps newer players with catching up to the current meta, and those who may have missed it due to rl and such a chance at the limited time gear and such. It may be we're getting the rerun raid to not overshadow the DQ collab going for another week and the CG Lid banner that I believe starts the following week.... just a wild guess considering the app icon change... :3

There they also get new content at the same time.

level 2

TBH JP also has these rerun events, when it's not overwhelming for us seasoned players, it still comes in handy for newer players and for those whose missed one particular item, I'm glad we're getting those back from time to time, it provides us with some spare time to farm TM or just chill after à lot of farming. Also, bahamut raid lets us get the rewards once more, which I wasn't expecting at all. While the opinions may diverge on that point, i'm pretty sure lots of people are Happy to get free Zyrus/Reberta TMRs.

Be sure most events will get a rerun at some points, sometime at the same time as a new even also, so don't be scared too much about filler reruns, it will most often be running in parallel to another.

Cheers People, have fun!

You've activated my trap card! (198,162,240)

I think the content repeats come about because story events, new raids, and mog king events are supposed to be on a 1/month rotation, so there's sort of an 'empty week' to fill. rather than just have a full rest week like we sometimes have, the repeat raid gives a bit extra to do for people that want it, and for players that weren't around for the first one it's nice. still though. it'd be nice if story/trial release was timed to line up with this 4th week so people have the free energy to do it.

I’m thrilled we’re getting Bahamut raid again. Largely skipped it the first time around due to other commitments. Despite being a veteran player, I look forward to Crimson Blood, second Spike, Equip H Armor, Dragons Roar, a boatload of heavicrysts and lb pots.

And very glad to hear Gumi contemplating challenges for vets. The thing is, new players wouldn’t be scared away if they knew they’d get another shot at the content on a predictable recurring schedule.

To me it makes more sense to rerun old events concurrently with new ones, but perhaps organize them on their own tab so new players can take on challenges commensurate with their level and vets can go back and get something they missed to break up the new content monotony that sets in during week 2.

Most players are FF veterans and are used to building up at their own pace to take on challenges. I believe most players would be fine knowing they can’t beat a trial boss right away or perhaps aren't ready for particular content but know it won’t cost them in perpetuity.

level 2

I thought this was a particularly nice sentiment to add my 2 cents in under. Sometimes all that gets heard are the unsatisfied voices because the rest of us are quietly and contently playing.

So, thank you for the event reruns! Plenty of us welcome the loots we weren't around to get during the original runs.

Not that I don't understand the feelings of others who might view reruns as potential delays in the release of challenging new content. We all know they constitute pretty minimal development effort, so theoretically they shouldn't delay anything. I would certainly hope they aren't being used that way.

The most important thing for me right now would be an alternate sign-on method than Facebook. I have wanted to delete my facebook account for a while and even more so recently.

level 1

As someone who didn't have the game when the Bahamut Raid first came around, I'd like to give my thanks for the repeat events. That being said, I can see why some people were disappointed - probably the best approach would be to pair up old events alongside new ones, to give newer and older players something new at the same time.

Also, consider some balance patches. Tweaks to make Magic more viable and to fix the Fixed Dice might be beneficial for the game in the long run.

level 1

I know it's already been said, but BIG THANK YOU for posting something like this. Even without concrete assurance of what the future holds, feeling like someone cares about our opinion really helps..

As a side note, I'm not the oldest player- Just started at Christmas. So SOME of these re-runs have been enjoyable to me. This current March on Garuda event has been nice to fill out some "free" TMRs from my sorely lacking inventory.

Some of the time limited Gear from earlier events would be awesome to get another chance at (Carbon Bangle for my shiny new Liquid Metal Slime, etc.) Though.. I should say, the desire to get strong enough to face some of the content the Veterans take on has been much more of a driving force.

Again, appreciate you stopping by and posting!

u/elytraxp I think veteran players don't mind so much a rerun if not for the fact that this is 2nd month in a row we got 4 weeks of raid. I prefer if there is rerun, then it is either King Mog or Exploration, so I don't have to feel like I'm forced to redo. And once again, please try not to do back-to-back raid.

level 2

Gonna have to disagree with you there. I run kind mogs only enough to get the bare minimum of stuff outta his shop and never touch it again. King mog is my most hated type of events that they run.

There could be raids every week and I wouldn't mind. It's literally free exp (and Gil if you have enhanced xon). Not to mention moogles, cactuars, Gil snappers, and a chance at a 4* ticket.

King mog is my most hated type of events that they run.

For me, the order of preference is, from most liked to least liked:

  • Raid

  • King Mog

  • Story Event

Story events are just so godsdamned droll and time-consuming, I haven't actually finished one completely in ages, I just can't be bothered to. They take way too much time and effort, which I can't really afford to spend on the game when I'm at work, and which I don't spend on the game once I'm home because then I'm online with my buds.

Thank you for the communication and the heads up, but I’ve learned not to get my hopes up regarding this game. I’m pretty dissatisfied with the direction that GL is heading down. The reasoning behind some of these decisions just don’t make any sense to me.

I’m hoping that Gumi can snap back to reality and provide us with an experience that satisfies both veterans and new players alike, because it is most certainly possible to do both.

level 1

I have some suggestions if you would take them into consideration. I've been playing for a long while, but frankly It's getting awfully repetitive and very easy. So here they are

1- Regarding farming events, I understand that you must not scare off the beginners, but you must also not bore the veteran. As such, let there be a super-hard energy-consuming difficulty that is slighty more rewarding than an easier energy-saving difficulty. That way we can fight maybe once or twice, a very stimulating battle without tiring of them.

2-Spend some time on the fodder, add some depth into them, make it rewarding to beat them. I sick of spamming Full Speed Bladeblitz.

3-Make some events/modes where only 4* or 3* are allowed, they've absolutely no use of have rarer units and it would be good for beginners too, not that it should be easy.

4- Add hard mode to the story, with suitable rewards of course. We would love to re-experience the first season without otko-ing everything in our way.

I hope you guys at least take them into consideration if not implement them.

level 2

The ability to use X raid orbs in a single run and get X rewards would be awesome. Same with king mog events, lgd would cost 40X let's say x=3 it would use 120 energy and get x3 rewards, it would save a lot of time.

RIP sephiroth, 7stars, nier return and xenogears collaboration. And also doubt QoL improvement coz they just release new version this week and QoL improvement come with new versions. Hope they bring hype bundles.

QYou say that the FFBE team is feared of scaring the new players if they give hard challenges to the veteran players.

I need to say that it could be the opposite too, the veteran players could leave the game if they don't have hard battles to use their best units and TMRs.

So, I think that it could be a good idea to make some warnings for the new players. Recently they put stars on all trials to mark how hard are they, that is fine. They could send a message to all players who will try to do a trial, saying something like "trials are the hardest content of this game. If you can beat them, come again after getting better units or equipment, kupo!". I played some gatchas and I think that a little message like that could be useful for new players.

I really hope to get hard content. Gumi needs to know that we kmow everything from the Japanese version, so they should give a nightmare difficult to all trials. It will be a great way to give us challenging battles without doing a great effort (making a boss from zero would be harder and would take more time from them).

Finally, they don't need to be feared of making another Malboro case. I think that the vastly majority of players changed their mind about that boss and now they like it. It is fine to get content that we can't best the first day (peopled complained for that reason).

The raid came to me as a pleasant surprise, actually. I know people are bummed and that they feel that they have nothing left to do in this raid, but for some, me included (of course), have only obtained the units, mainly Reberta and Zyrus on a later date. This actually came as another chance to stock Cactuars and Gil snappers so, people, don't get mad at the team, especially when they give such a nice feedback and actually speak to the playerbase.

I'm grateful for the return of the Bahamut raid! Even if I don't need these anymore, it's free stuff, and while the equipment is lacking by today's level of power creep, this and the Garuda raid earlier has really helped my friends, newer players, get a big boost in terms of units, abilities, materials, weapons, gil... So thank you! Easier events like these is what got my friends playing again, instead of a limited time event that would have been impossible for them to finish.

I don't even mind the re-run of the Bahamut raid. I just wish there was some changes to the Moogles that we got. Instead of Firion and Kain, why not make it more Dragoon themed?

Keep Reberta and Zyrus, but could have added Duke's TMR moogle, and also the Wind and Ice Spear TMRs that are also from Dragoon units.

One of the top requests from players will be implemented possibly as early as May. There is no official announcement yet because the timing is not final. I know for sure Redditors will rejoice! "We are considering it" has turned into "We are definitely doing it." :D

Thank you /u/elytraxp for your info. When you talk about good bundles, do you mean $ bundles or lapis? because a good bundle in $ ca does not exist. You should leave the choice to the player while leaving them available to any type of player (free to play or not). As on the Japanese version where 99% of the bundles are buyable in lapis! I do not find that very correct. Then there's a whole topic that talks about the boredom of a player, and I'd like an official answer at this level: Why do trials come late without difficulty and why with so much difference? At the beginning of FFBE I believed in a real game, it was this for a year, now it became a draw only game, which made the appeal of the game disappeared: the trials .... (this is a google trad, i'm french, sorry )

The "scaring off new players" thing is baffling to me. That's some nonsense when it comes to splitting up a joke of a trial with the White Dragon/Brach/Chimera. It's also no excuse to be a good 4+ months behind schedule on trials and making it even worse.

It's time to start catching us up. Release Brach/Chimera and speed up it to every 2 weeks until we're caught up instead of once a month.

I don't see how on earth you think that "scares off" new players. You're just driving away older ones with nonsensical behavior like splitting up trials and even going two months in between them like back a couple months ago.

Hey! While it's obvious we all appreciate you responding with anything approaching an actual directed thing, I'm sorry to say it but this isn't sufficient. I also acknowledge that you're just the messenger, and this isn't at all your fault.

One thing to add: Yes, we get you don't have all the answers. Gumi has to do a significantly better job of communicating fully, which you aren't given the means to do. They need to do a state of the game, Destiny 2 style view of the next month.

2018 has been awful for anyone who's played the game more than 6 months. Yeah, yeah, I know people are going to say they don't have all the units or whatever, but it's less about that and more about the fact that the game is stalling for basically no reason - translation and activation of new trials isn't easy but it's certainly not hard to do for a game that makes an absolute crap-ton on its customers.

In less than a month we've been treated to TWO type summons - 4/20 to 4/27 and the latest one that started today. These are low-effort, high-revenue for Gumi - they could EASILY exist in concert with a new banner, but the feeling I'm guessing is that they'd rather capitalize on new users' FOMO and not have that eat into their revenues for a new banner.

We're deliberately having trials held back - how are we only on Chamber of Arms 2? Why didn't we get all 3 Ultimate forms? At this point we should at the very least be up to 3 and have the Iron Giant trial.

Then there's the whole supercite situation - one expedition a day, 12 hours. C'mon guys.

The thing that everyone's been waiting for should be Medina, but will likely be CG Lid and a reload button.

There's a comment about "impossibly high expectations" - I don't think that's really a fair comment to the community at large. It's a gacha game - imagining they'll keep up the pace of units we already know to exist that won't break the game isn't unrealistic or impossible, nor is it unreasonable to expect.

If they wanna inject this game with some life, they'll start doing a trial a week, start step-up banners (no idea why they don't already, it's almost guaranteed revenue) and start pushing banners earlier. Probably the biggest issue Gumi has is Alim - JP is a constant reminder that this game can be regularly updated and given life.

Note that JP constantly has banners that feature certain old units along with new banners.

Getting a rerun of Vision of Bahamut is pretty sad.

Do you think it was the leak? I think it was the leak. They got worried that people would ignore banners to hit up next week's banner. Now they've happily knocked everyone's clock off.

My point is, it feels like Gumi's coasting. I used to get really, really excited for Wednesdays (sometimes Tuesdays!) for updates. Yes, I know I'm salty as the sea. But I've been playing a while, and I'm disappointed.

Probably an argument someone will bring is that "the game isn't just for me." True! Absolutely true. This current experience isn't ideal for anyone, except perhaps very new players. I'm happy that others are happy, if they are, but the state of the game right now is really bad. For whales, for f2p, for anyone.

Like I said: calling that it's gonna be CG Lid, and probably if we're "lucky" Trial 3 and some sort of banal QOL thing. There's no reason at all they can't have already introduced cactuar fusing, the reload button, and other things from JP. This is a successful Gacha game, they have the money and resources to do this.

You all have been releasing pretty good bundles lately. Just try to keep them to the same standards and you shouldn't have too many complaints.

  • reberta/OK enhancements (the most expected ones atm i guess).

  • training of the soul events for CG units.

this unfortunatly are quality of life or updates and go live at end of maintenance, so we can assume this is not hapening.

  • 5 star garanteed type banners.

  • step up banners.

  • Sephirot/Lila banner.

  • weapon enhancement event.

  • Nier event. (god forbit it... ppl hype about this one more than ####)

the "expected" event is probably from this list, CG units are deliberatly ignored as no one is really waiting for those more than sephirot/lila and we know they are the next ones to be released so no suprprise when they are released anyway. and ignored any colab/raid/story event as those are obvious to be released with each respective banner and the colabs cant be predicted in global as we may get diferent ones (i think bravelly default is next in line if we get a colab), but the possibility for a second Nier event is very open since ppl are asking for it the moment the first one ended...

I think we can pretty much narrow this down for a few things that could be coming.

The most likely in my opinion is that we will be getting our first Step Up banner on the CG Lid banner. It's just what would make the most sense.

Things like:

Reload Button

Cactuar Fusing

Additional Unit/Enhancement space (Like JP just got).

All of those would happen on May 10th (This is of course assuming that they don't delay Maintenance in order to keep us guessing. Which would also be a scary thing to release something that is new to the Global game on the same day as a banner release).

Regardless of all this, it should at least be steps in the right direction.

Just don't be surprised if it's not what you want ;)

@Elytra

I think it's super important that all the events get rerun.

I would really like Gumi to make a system to make it much easier to access old events (ones long out of date). Because there's no reason to not enable collectors to get all the items.

People are complaining about a re-run of a raid - but it's optional - they can just not do it. Assuming this doesn't delay another raid - I think people should get used to raids being constant so that the old ones can be redone.

But please, give us 10 orbs already :P
