This post was delayed because I ran into some technical difficulties with the cloud IDE I’m using, but I think I figured out a workaround. There was also a problem saving the ranking data from last week so the listed changes might be mistaken; I did my best to hand correct them. I was hoping the delay would mean picking up possible Halloween updates, but it looks like only GameWith has updated.

3235 - 魔究の狂幻魔, Ilm
Change: Added to 3

MAthena is my team of choice for Arena farming, but I can see Ilm-Minerva becoming a favorite for DC solo runs, especially since the team is reasonably accessible (even if you don’t have an Ilm).

3242 - Reincarnated Lakshmi
Change: Added to ❀

It seems a bit ridiculous, but these days the bar is set so high for leaders that even quality ones like the revo Indians can barely make the cut.

From the research I’ve done for my Halloween REM review, Halloween Xiang Mei is better than the original, but not by such a margin to make her a great card again.

The majority of this week’s movement came from Game8’s reorganization of their tiers, something that culminated in a more inclusive A-tier. As such, I’m removing their “popular leaders” section from the aggregate.

JP Aggregate Leader List Changes of Note

Card Notes
2969 - Star Cutting Time Dragon Caller, Myr
Change: 2➞1

I recently went over a similar change that AppMedia made, making light Myr one tier higher than Summer Myr. Her light version will always have an advantage in theory since light has no elemental weakness, but I don’t think that’s enough to separate them by a tier. People will bring up something like light having access to June Akechi which is indeed a huge advantage, but on the other hand I can bring up something like Summer Myr having access to Neptune Dragon to easily deal with shenanigans, Sopdet in particular. I think there’s enough back and forth like this to not separate them by a tier. However, in the end, it doesn’t really matter as all the heart-crossers can curb stomp just about everything in the game so getting worked up over their relative positions is just splitting hairs.

2924 - Rebellious Demon, Oda Nobunaga
Change: ❀➞3

A seemingly strange upgrade, but this is really only because Game8 added him back to their A-tier so it’s more like he’s back to where he should’ve been all along.

2259 - Sun God, Ra Dragon
Change: 3➞❀

Our boy Ra Dragon was able to stay on the tier lists for an entire year. There are very few leaders that have been relevant for so long, if ever (my early-PAD history isn’t so great so I can’t say for sure, maybe something like RSonia had similar longevity?). For early adopters, we sure got our money’s worth.

3115 - Goddess of Beach Volley, Lakshmi
Change: Added to ❀

Added to Game8’s revamped A-tier. I’d like to think this includes the normal Lakshmi as well who is arguably just as good if not better.

2261 - God of the Night, Tsukuyomi Dragon
Change: Removed from ❀

RIP. You farmed me literally hundreds of Pys. Your efforts won’t be forgotten o7.

2507 - Awoken Archdemon Lucifer
Change: Removed from ❀

Another RIP. I spent most of my efforts comparing you to Pandora instead of extolling your own virtues, but you were always a legit leader. And thus the old guard of awoken uevos was banished from the lands.

Card Notes
3068 - 灼天の勇将神, Krishna
Ranked Sites: Game8 (AA), GameWith (A), AppMedia (S), PadPlus (4)

I mentioned in the comments last week that I felt that Krishna was about as powerful as Xiang Mei and should probably be rated as such. Well, it looks like JP thinks he’s flat out better. I still think something has to be said for Xiang Mei’s nigh invulnerability, but I can totally see how a more proactive playstyle would be more appealing to the masses.

3218 - 最強裝備・Flintlock
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A), AppMedia (S-), PadPlus (1)

As with the Kinnikuman cards, Flintlock looks very strong, but isn’t something I can evaluate accurately.

3070 - 均衡の創界神, Vishnu
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A), PadPlus (7)

Vishnu isn’t as tanky as Krishna, but he hits harder and is plenty capable as a leader himself. With wood having a glut of great leaders lately, it’s easy to overlook him.

3202 - 慈悲之神・Acala
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A), GameWith (A), PadPlus (3)

I haven’t wanted a pantheon card this much in a long time. Acala isn’t an elite leader, but when’s the last time a normal evolution of a pantheon god has been as good as one? See you next year for their uevos.

Special REM Review – June Bride

This REM has me questioning if there’s ever a point where it’s acceptable for the average player to roll in a seasonal REM from a value standpoint. For so long it was easy to just assume that these were full of garbage except for a chase card or two at the highest rarities, resulting in extremely poor value for one’s stones. Well, the June Bride REM is GungHo’s best attempt at proving that assumption wrong. While the REM is once again plagued with rehashes and palette swaps, there are a handful that are powerful enough to overlook the unoriginality — namely Eschamali, Gadius and Akechi. The fact that they’re great subs on Miru heightens the overall value as she’s farmable and currently one of the best leaders in the game. There’s even some value for new players in Bastet and Ra and to be honest, I wouldn’t mind more Ras for skill inheritance. With so many positives, is it enough to finally recommend rolling?

Well, once you actually see the rates, any ideas of value fly out the window. For an idea of the odds, Flandre’s post at PF is a good starting point. He documents his own rolling experience in the first post and follows it up with some Twitter testimonials from some JP whales. You’re free to interpret those numbers as you please, but it’s undeniable that rates are “shit, as usual”. Perhaps the nail in the coffin is that Akechi’s rarity appears to be more like a 6-star than a 5-star. It just feels like a huge ruse putting him at 5-star; if he was actually as common as the trash eggs Ruka and Kano then I might feel better about recommending rolling this REM. Different rates at the same rarity seems to be a trend as Sasuke seemed to be rarer than Theuriga in the Academy REM; similarly with Hanzo vs. Mitsuki in the New Year’s REM. Combining this with the fact that none of the silvers are must-haves, rolling this REM is too risky. GungHo might be getting better at making special REM lineups superficially more attractive, but in the end, the value still isn’t there due to the rates continuing to be horrendous and, quite frankly, misleading.

I’m scared and I wish those trying for Eschamali good luck.

It’s great to see so many wood cards on the list and it should only improve next week when Kaede and Liu Bei’s time in the holding tank expires. For what it’s worth, all elements seem to be represented fairly well now. There’s still a lack of fire leads; while Xiang Mei is certainly one of the most powerful leads, the element really needs more options. Hopefully Awoken Cao Cao can fill that void, or at least be on Liu Bei’s level, but I’ve learned to not get my expectations up when it comes to GungHo.

JP Aggregate Leader List Changes of Note

Card Notes
2765 - One-Winged Angel, Sephiroth
Change: 2➞3

I’ve actually been using Sephiroth quite a bit lately to solo farm MZeus for SDRs. I’ve learned quite a bit about the team and for the most part my initial assessment was true. He’s ridiculously OP in MZeus, but elsewhere, he just isn’t worth the effort. However, considering how much value there is to be obtained in that dungeon, I understand why the lists initially regarded Seph so high.

1955 - Awoken Lakshmi
Change: Added to 3

I had tired of beating the Lakshmi drum long, long ago and wish I had continued to do so if only to now say “I told you so!”. She continuously received significant buffs and her clear videos remained impressive, but she was constantly ignored by the tier lists. I’m glad to see her back. It’s good to see Parvati also getting love and it’s strange that Shiva might be the weakest awoken from the pantheon now.

2929 - 月下の愛猫神のBastet Ace
Change: Added to 3

Bastet Ace breaths new life into your old Bastet, producing results that are at least on par with Awoken Anubis with a more friendly activation.

2013 - Awoken Anubis
Change: Removed from 3

Well, it finally happened. Here’s hoping he gets some buffs in the near future.

1956 - Awoken Parvati
Change: Added to ❀

Similar to Lakshmi, Parvati has been receiving continuous buffs, but is still inferior due to the relatively poor sub pool. However, she has received some help with uevo Kaede and Robin Hood (as a better 100% SBR option), although if you have Kaede you’ll likely just be leading with her instead.

2751 - Awoken Persephone
Change: Removed from ❀

I was never a huge fan of Persephone and Apollo’s rankings on the Game8 list, but I slowly came around on their abilities; well, Persephone’s, at least. With Game8 retracting their ranking, they now disappear from the aggregate list. Regardless, I’m still looking forward to playing around with Persephone whenever she hits NA.

Card Notes
2972 - 碧地の風龍喚士・Kaede
Ranked Sites: Game8 (SS), GameWith (SS), AppMedia (SS), PadPlus (4)

There seems to be little doubt that Kaede is an elite leader and all the heart-cross leaders should enjoy destroying the endgame for a long time to come.

2903 - Awoken Liu Bei
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A+), GameWith Farming (SS), AppMedia (S), PadPlus (1)

I’m curious how much Game8 and AppMedia’s ratings are based on Liu Bei’s co-op farming prowess as he seems to be a relatively weak solo endgame leader.

2980 - Awoken Vritra
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A)

I think it’s a testament to Vritra’s power that he can be considered a strong leader despite his best leader pair being the outdated RSonia. I’m still not a huge fan of the double-color activation a la the awoken Greeks, but as an old Beelzebub-RSonia user, I’m tempted to try the team out if only because the sub pool is so damned strong now.

I’m seeing a bit too much green creep into the JP lists. Obviously, something must be wrong.

JP Aggregate Leader List Changes of Note

Card Notes
2507 - Awoken Archdemon Lucifer
Change: 2➞3

Lucifer is just is a good representative for most of the cards that were demoted this week. While it’s not like they’ve gotten worse, when better cards are released, it follows that relatively weaker cards get pushed down. It’s no coincidence that most of them were known for their ability to tank in one way or another (Lucifer, Neptune Dragon, Saria-Thor, Ryune-I&I, BSonia); the heart-cross leads (Kaede, Sumire, Miru) are just better at what they do.

2441 - Judging-Claw Orange Dragonbound, Saria
Change: Removed from 3

As a player whose first endgame team was Beelzebub-RSonia, it’s a sad day to see the Norsebounds getting removed from the aggregate list. There’s just too many other leaders that have similar survivability while also having better damage. It’ll be interesting to see if GungHo ever makes tank teams like this relevant again.

2389 - Awoken Sakuya
Change: Removed from ❀

With Sakuya getting booted, the only one left remaining from that generation of awoken combo/rainbow leads is Anubis.

New Card Holding Tank

New cards will be held here temporarily in an attempt to isolate the aggregate list from knee-jerk ratings.
Card Notes
2972 - 碧地の風龍喚士・Kaede
Ranked Sites: Game8 (SS), AppMedia (S+), PadPlus (6)

Game8 initially placed her at A. Then S. Now SS. While they’re known for being notoriously bad at rating brand new cards, I’ll give them a pass here since it took a couple days for people to truly grasp how broken the updated heart-cross mechanic had become. If you think GungHo made a mistake with Ra Dragon and Xiang Mei, the new heart-cross might be even worse than that. It doesn’t help that the three foremost leads that it’s on — Kaede, Sumire and Miru — all give the user copious amounts of time to combo, meaning even scrubs like me can use them effectively.

Personally, Kaede’s been one of my favorite cards since she was released. I wasn’t expecting her to get a buff quite like this, but at least now it should be much easier easier to find friends for her.

2971 - 藍海の水龍喚士・Sumire
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A+)

I didn’t think there was that much of a gap between Sumire and Kaede; Kaede seems stronger due her higher damage, but I didn’t think there was one tier in between them like Game8 has it. After all, does damage really make that much of a difference when you’re nigh unkillable? I guess we’ll see where the other lists go with her in the coming week or so.

2903 - Awoken Liu Bei
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A+), AppMedia (S), PadPlus (14)

Liu Bei never struck me as an elite leader as the active-reliance limits what he can do. While not a great measure of aptitude, the lack of Arena 2 clears on YouTube has me worried. He’s obviously a great co-op farming leader when combined with Dios subs, but don’t think that warranst his current place on the Game8 and AppMedia lists.

2969 - 星刻の時龍契士・Miru
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A+), AppMedia (S-), PadPlus (4)

Miru’s the strongest non-co-op lead we’ve gotten in a long time and it will probably remain that way for a while just off the back of the heart-cross.

2949 - 聖鐘の花嫁・Eschamali
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A), PadPlus (8)

I’m not sure why Game8 ranked her where they did, even if it was in their lowest tier. Adding gods into her sub pool is a big upgrade compared to the original, but changing her RCV multiplier to HP seems like a slight downgrade. Regardless, of what I think, I’m interested to see where the other lists put her, if they do at all.
