Well, let's put it this way; I don't know how much of a bonus 5* or 6* is giving, and the biggest bonuses were on boss levels which I haven't gotten to yet.

Those 10 -> 12s seem to be becoming 15s now, so perhaps the bonus will build as one advances further as well.

Those 15s might be because those 10s slowly becomes 12s and 13s as you progress through the stages.

That's good to know though. If 4*s are only giving +2 BT rather than +40 then that's quite a huge difference. But maybe that changes up later.

I'm getting 12s without a special character.

Was it a calculated hit? lol!

Anyway, I think the higher you get the more points you get per battle.

Further notes:

The special attack for units with abilities only kicks in about half the time. This means that a batch of Knockback units, while still very good to put out there, isn't an outright lockdown solution for victory.

You get up to five units of your own, with a maximum of 100 unit points to allocate, plus two randomly selected allies. Obviously, who you get and who your opponent gets will have a big influence on Gladiator battles. Not a pleasant feeling to see the enemy team approach bookended by 6*ers.

Slow and Poison do not appear to have a dramatic effect. Knockback knocks an enemy's turn out of the queue when it activates. Area Effect, when it activates, appears to do about 2x single-attack damage to the enemy lifebar.

Elven Brews(S) give your team a 15-minute boost.

Once you clear the 20/20 of the East Arena, the next opponent is East Arena BOSS, who is Achillea, Eastern Gladiator. She brings some random unit friends but is pretty much a pushover the first time around. A new batch of East Arena 1/20 then opens up beneath the first, so it would appear it's quite a grind to reach center stage.

Unless my eyes decieve me, poison activates each time the opponent makes a turn. If you notice whenever you poison your opponent, each time he/she attacks, they loose health.
Only explination - poison?

Knockback knocks a unit's turn off. Slow has a similar effect -- pushes the unit's turn back (there is an internal turn calculator, based on your units' speeds), so I would say it's more useful than poison. Poison just takes a bit of health off each turn, but it's better to have your units attacking more than to do a bit of extra damage. Area attack isn't bad since it's like taking a free turn.

No idea what decides which opponents you get to battle, but it's probably based on level. All I see mostly is those topped out 6* owners, and fighting them is an exercise in futility. Laughing

While stronger opponents may give more BT points, there doesn't appear to be any penalty for losing a fight as the challenged, nor for beating on the same person over and over, so if you find someone in the list who's a pushover you can do Search Again until they come up and then rack up wins that way. You're not hurting them in the process.

(And to prove the point, Livia GET without using elixirs.)

I was thinking it'd be cool if the person who cockblocked someone else from getting a victory got some kind of reward for it (ally points? brave points? BT?) but that could potentially lead to people abusing it somehow, so maybe not.

Is the +BT for your 4* still just 2?

Not entirely sure, since I'm not taking Helmut out to find out. Wink

I'm on the second East Arena set, #19 of 20, a 4* Armed Forces unit in my set, and I just got 29 BT points for it. Someone else can confirm what the 'normal' total for that is.

At least I'm doing it the right way this time. I'd probably have an Erhard now if I hadn't taken 'til day 4 of DT to realize that you had to OWN a Dark Elf to get bonus points; all those runs with Beatrix and Victoria allies deployed didn't do jack.

Er, by the way. I just found out you can only attack a player in the Colosseum only so many times (per day)?

I feel like it's more than 3, but I could be wrong. Whoops. Laughing

And yeah, I didn't realize exactly how much DE elves helped. Getting 10 vs getting 50 is quite a large difference.

Doubt it, I've been picking on this.. BK-20 guy and.. Neijikaku all day. >.>

Rank 24 Sad

EDIT: For those times you get screwed over by the randomizer, Poison is your best friend.. I've inched out victories many times with poison.

No idea, it just told me "nope, can't battle this person anymore!" Wonder why?

I was at the beach, so quite a far ways back on any rankings.

And the idea of another grueling week of Fantasica is making my head swim.

NP.

I've gotten past 50 Victories, aren't I supposed to get a premium ticket every 20, after 30? Or did they mean increments of 20? i.e. 60 would be when it starts..

Currently at 54.. I'll know in an hour..

Anyone having good luck getting the small elven brews? What episodes are you having the best luck getting them? I was trying to farm them in episode one sense it only cost 10 TP per move but i felt like the drop rate was really low. seems like the higher episodes drop them more often but i am not sure if the extra TP cost is really worth the higher % chance. (granted i am not sure if it is higher or not)

I'm doing 5-2, but yeah the drop rate is extremely low. I get maybe 1 out of 300 Training Points, if I'm lucky two.

I just do 10-4 like usual. Sometimes I get one, sometimes not. Last time I got 2 in a row. I think one lasts enough for 2 venus colosseum battles (since it's 15 minutes) so technically you could keep that up for awhile.

Just hit 60 Victories, the rules are a bit off, its every 20 Victory INCREMENT following the Reward for 30 Victories, so 60, 80, 100, and so forth.

PostSubject: A short look at speed in Event Battles   Fri Sep 14, 2012 9:23 pm

I was worried about how much speed would effect my E speed ranked leader. So I payed attention, as much as my ADD will let me, and this is what happened.

Aside from all the knockback and slow effects (only a few in the round from each side) my E speed ranked leader got 2 attacks versus the 3 attacks from the S speed ranked leader.

2nd fight : Angela 4 Hiede 1 Ouch....

So while I think speed does play an important role, I would not say that it is the an overwhelming quality of any particular card. I am leaning toward attack damage as the most important characteristic.

Any thoughts?

I think it sort of does matter. All I have is slow units, and they end up attacking after the enemy's units usually. This lets the enemy potentially get knockbacks, slows, poisons, etc in and do a lot more damage to me before I can damage them (or remove my move altogether with knockback, etc). So I wouldn't say that it doesn't matter, because placement and getting more moves in does.
