In a typical Popularity event, you will have to save a Crush and get Love Points. Love Points are measured in two ways, individual Love Points which are tallied separately for each crush: and total Love Points which represent all the Love Points you earned, meaning there are 4 rankings in this event, 3 for the crushes and one for the overall Love Points that you have gained.
The total love points represent the total amount of Love Points from all the crushes.
Every ten exclusive Training areas you clear, you will encounter a boss and you can get loot!
A crush may also ask you for a favour. If you give the correct item, unit, or monster, you will gain bonus Love Points. If you give the wrong item, no Love Points will be gained.Defence
You can deploy 2 of your units and 3 of your allies to protect the princess. For each enemy unit that reaches the crush, her Love Pt gauge will decrease. The amount of the decrease will vary according to the rarity of the unit (i.e 5*, 6*). The higher the rarity of the unit, the greater the decrease.
Enemy units that have skills will have an effect when they reach the princess successfully.
Poison : This skill causes the Love Pt Gauge to decrease steadily for a period of time.
Knockback: This skill will disable Love Macarons for a period of time.
Slow: This reduces the attack speed of your units for a period of time (Oh crap, Alexander....)
Area Attack: Causes an additional decrease of 200 Love Points
Attack Boost: Increases the amount of damage dealt by ALL enemy units for a period of time
If the Love Gauge Points reaches 0, you will fail the quest and lose 500 Love Points Love Points, Total Love Points and Popularity
Each of the three crushes have their own Love Points. Defeating all the enemies and having a perfect defence will earn a greater amount of love points for the crush that you have successfully protected.
If the love points reaches zero instead, you will fail the quest and a number of Love Points for that crush only will be lost.
If you fail to protect Miss Khuri , the love points FROM all the crushes will decrease.
As the three crushes are rivals, helping one crush will increase her individual Love Points and will lower the other two individual crushes of their Love Points. Your Total Love Points will not decrease.
Please take note that you only can receive each Love Point reward once!
Each crush has her own popularity rating , a crush popularity rating will increase by 1 if you succeeded in defending her. Her defense quests will thus become more difficult.
If you fail to defend a crush at a given popularity 3 times, her popularity ranking will decrease by 1.Favors
Favors can trigger in one of two ways by either occuring randomly after you have successfully defended a crush or occur after you have attempted to defend a crush a set number of times.
After you successfully defend a crush, there is a small chance that the crush will ask you for a favor.
She will give you a hint as to what she is looking for. Give her something that matches her request to earn bonus Love Pts. (Please read carefully on what she requests, it's not as clear-cut)
If you give her something she does not want, you will NOT earn ANY additional Love Pts.
The more Love Pts a crush has, the higher the chance that she'll ask you for a favor after battle.
Additionally, a crush will also ask you for favors once you have attempted to defend them a certain number of times.
During this time, you can tap the Gift button on the main page to listen to a crush's request, whoever will make the request will depend on each crush's Love Pts. The princess with the highest Love Pt total will make the request.
If two or more crushes have the same amount of Love Pts, then the princess/maiden will be determined at random.
The items you can gift to a princess/maiden are listed below:
Love Cherries (event item)
Bell Charm (gift item)
Demon Spray (gift item)
All items given to the crush will be lost in the process.
Love Cherries, Bell Charms and Demon Sprays can be found by completing quests.
Love Cherries can also be obtained with purchases of card packs
Giving a Love Cherries to a crush will always award some Love Pts, however you will receive fewer points than if you'd given the *correct* item.
If you happen to close the app or accidentally back out of the gift-giving process, you can try again by returning back to the event main page and tapping the Gift button.
You can only continue from the last gift-giving process you participated in when the error / mistake occurred.
If you have more than one favor active at any given time, you may need to complete one before you can initiate the other.
However, if you trigger more than one favor (by engaging in a set number of quests), then you will lose access to the oldest one. For example, if you trigger a favor by attempting 5(hypothetical) quests and then trigger a second favor by completing 10(hypothetical) quests, you will lose access to the first favor if you have not already completed it.Stud Mode
You can initiate Stud Mode by using the event-exclusive item Pretty Flowers. Stud Mode lasts for 5 minutes by default.
Stud Mode increases the chance to encounter crushes during Training (Crush is determined by whichever princess you have selected at the time of use.) and also increases the chance for crush to ask you for a favor at the end of a successful defense
It also reduces the number of enemies present in a defense quest.
Furthermore, if you active Stud Mode for Miss Khuri, there is a small increase in the chance to encounter all crushes during Training, a small increase in chance that a crush will ask you for a favor at the end of a successful defense (All crushes) and also reduces the number of enemies present in a defense quest (All crushes)
You will earn a few LP (around 13-21 LP) each time you press the Advance Button(points are spilt equally), less Love Points will be reduced due to crush rivalries or failed defences, an increase in LP when Love Cherries are used and the LP Gauge will start at 1000 Love Points.
If you close the app during a defense quest while Stud Mode is active, you will no longer enjoy it's bonus if you log in after Stud Mode wears off.Crush Stories
Crush Stories (Daily Crush Stories is what they call in-game) are newly introduced in this event. You can view the stories when it is released and you must also earn the required amount of Love Points needed to view the Crush Story.
There is a reward when you have viewed the story so try to get the rewards if you can!
