Sigh.

Finally dank Maymay seasonal card.
Art sucks.
It’s water-main.
Sigh.

At least there’s two good things that come of this:
1. NA finally gets this board change combination.
2. The door is now open for wood-main Karin.

    • I’m pretty safe this time. There’s nothing I really want. I’ll probably do my usual two packs and call it a day. I’d like to say I could limit it to one pack, but I know I won’t be able to hold back that much when I see what all my friends are rolling. Two packs is more than doable, though. Maybe next year.

    • Well, that’s good news, at least. I have plenty more to gripe about, but I’ll save the complaining for the eventual REM review.

      • The only bright side is that there’s finally fullboard change with those 3 colours since Japan had had them for a while. Something to use with water sasuke I suppose.

  1. I feel like passing on this REM, I still own Bikinitron and Summer Urd and they are doing nothing except take up box space.

    • I’m not going to roll much for this REM. I need to cool down on my rolling anyways, but even if I didn’t, nothing at the higher rarities really appeals to me. Water Myr would obviously be great, but I’m not rolling for an 8-star reskin. At least the lower rarities have some nice cards, so I’ll be rolling for some of those, but yeah, they’ll probably just end up collecting dust (although, to be fair, almost all special REM stuff ends up doing that).

  2. The most confusing thing about Blue Escha… Scheat exists. So it just comes down to sparkle vs UUUUU. Should have saved it for a red one in Christmas.

  3. Art makes her look like she’s 8 years old or something wtf

    Also no lifeguard Odin or speedo GGY disappointed too many waifus.

    • I thought they were off to a good start with Goemon day 1, then nothing day 2. While I personally don’t mind all the waifu-filled REMs, I do think it’d be nice if there was more diversity.

  4. I was actually thinking that since Halloween is (presumably) next, we’ll get Dark Karin. Or maybe they’ll end up giving us a Dark/Green combo, and each of the other China girls will also get alt color versions. I’m pretty disappointed there was no buff to any of the existing cards (outside BMeta) but maybe they’ll announce them later.

    • No Pandora buffs seems particularly ridiculous considering her two regular forms are so much better. On top of that, NY Yamato is seriously busted so I was expecting something that would place her a bit closer to him. GSonia was snubbed, too, but at least she got a token leader skill buff. I guess I can swallow Claire only getting an extra type since it was an important one, but I’d also expect more from an 8-star nowadays. If they don’t make any last minute changes, here’s hoping they do a mid-year renewal like they did for the other seasonal REMs and these cards gets the buffs they deserve.

      Yeah, hopefully we get Karin for Halloween. I thought they’d go the easy and obvious route and just do Karin during summer and Meimei for Halloween, but I guess not. I’d be quite pleased with a g/d and d/g Karin, though, and would probably roll for two of them. I’m also disappointed we didn’t get a new Ninja as they’ve probably been the most useful overall rolls from their respective REMs. Instead, we get two useless Sticker Girls.

  5. Well, I will be rolling way too much in this REM.

    Water Genbu is fun, ad the fact that she has a unique board change is OH so nice, and opens a few interesting combos. (Though lack of an option to end up with 2 colors and hearts is a bit of a bummer… unless there IS one that I don’t know about?)

    But really, water Myr already… A bit crazy IMO, but damn it, I’ll be rolling for her, so what ever. Someone on Reddit did a drawing of dark type Myr, and boy it got me thinking about how great she would be in blue, and here we are. Suffice to say, that with how much I love blue, and how overwhelmingly powerful regular Myr is for a farmable, that I REALLY want the blue one… I WASgoing to make a regular Myr team, but now I’ll wait and see how long it takes for us to get this REM.

    BEscha is interesting. We already have Scheat, so it’s surprising that this is a thing, but the AS is still so good… unfortunately, so is , who I just rolled, which means that I have no real reason to roll for her aside from OEs, and let’s be honest, water teams aren’t within spitting distance of the meta right now. (Blue myr will probably change that to be fair…) As such, not really feeling the appeal here, especially when I have a chance at Scheat when I’m going for Gremory or Paimon or Dantalion.or Kaede in a few months. (Cross meta is hype AF to me.)

    Summer Lakshmi is where it’s at though. It’s a shame they nerfed her max multiplier, especially now that it’s impossible to activate for 3 full rows, but heart cross for a ~50% shield any time is not to be understated. I WILL NOT be leaving this machine without a Lakshmi. There aren’t many Lakshmi players left, but we are quite passionate 😛

    All in all, I’m just waiting for the JP crowd to riot, and for buffs to start rolling out. I’m realistically expecting AT LEAST new awakenings for BUrd and BGonia, and a LS change for Summer Panda. (I think they will actually screw over Claire though. :P)Hoping for a buff to 3x for the cross for Lakshmi, but not counting on it, I’m just happy that she’s included in the heart cross meta, even if her shield is small lol.

    • Obligatory lol at the 4:20 timestamp.

      In terms of Blue Eschamali vs Scheat, you’re essentially trading TPA damage and Light –> Water for enhanced Water orbs and and Wood –> Water. The two cards both have uses, but on different teams; Scheat is more suited for Water teams that have an easier time making TPAs, like Rukia and Sumire, whereas BEscha does better with teams that like lots of enhanced orbs like You Yu and Neptune/Noah Dragon.

  6. So the Water Myr is 500k MP… you weren’t kidding when you mentioned that we literally have a farmable MP card in Myr haha…I guess Myr’s value for the light version would be something like 600k if water myr is 500k lol

    • A 500k price tag is alarming, but overall I think it’s fine and in a lot of ways it’s good (probably in the minority with that opinion). I’m curious to see where they go with MP cards from here.

        • Liu Bei is generally the best option for a couple reasons:
          1) Don’t really need as many specialized subs (compared to MZeus in particular).
          2) Dios swiping makes long-term farming much easier to bear.

          As for other options, I’m pretty sure there’s a farmable Goemon Scarlet team. Of course MZeus and MHera are also usable. Anything else seems like too much effort, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

      • Yeah I guess MP being more accessible these days, the prices of these MP things are bound to increase. Its obvious she’s a lot stronger than the MP dragons and flowers, so it would make no sense making them the same price.

        Dark Miru might be the most OP card if it ever comes out haha.. I wonder if they will buff the older MP cards, like Shiva dragon and Neptune Dragon, would be nice.

    • Hmm? What does what have to do with what? I’m just not a fan of the art. I was also not happy Meimei was introduced as a water card, but they “fixed” it by giving her a color-swap uevo.

  7. In my whole time playing pad I’ve wracked up about 250k mp. If I farmed like hell I could’ve maybe made it to 300k by the time NA got this event, but finding out that Water Myr is going to be 500k mp was heartbreaking. I’m running Sumire right now and was looking forward to a possible upgrade. What the hell do I do now.

    • You can get 10k MP per hour farming z8. You probably have at least 3 weeks to farm (assuming 1 week delay + 2 weeks for the event, longer if it gets delayed more). That’s a little over an hour per day. Pick up the pieces of your broken heart and get to farming. Now.

  8. I for one love the art (it covers a fetish, let´s leave it at that) and she´s probably going to come in handy.

    Besides (and I´m pretty sure you´ve already read it over and over again), she can be evolved to switch colours back and forth so she´s technically bot colours at once anyway
