Hey there. Nice to see someone who's also enjoying Extra Credits.
I'll just let you in the beginner tips:
- Don't use Time Elixirs and/or Potions yet, as they're the game's trading currency. Learn the game, check the different events, ask around and plan accordingly.
- Choose your allies well and be nice to them. More than half of the events rely on good allies, and the more powerfull and trustworthy your allies are, the better.
- Start low, go slowly - if you don't invest money on this game (being a "free player", that is), focu on getting one unit of each type for each star rating. Go 3*/4*, then gather funds and rise to the 5* (or get a few freebies, as free 5* are easy to get), get one or two 6* once you collect enough funds (there are cheap ones and expensive ones, learn about the market at your pace).
Also, a big heads-up: The Final Fantasy artist mentioned in the video rarely does art for the game at this time, giving paths to other artists. Fortunately, some of them are also as good or as better as them (a lot of players like works from miso, apt and Northern Rock Star).
Hoping that you do enjoy the game.
