    Since this is the place for rants, just my two cents. :) I don't see anything fundamentally wrong with incorporating a non-Final Fantasy character with the other units. (Plus this is limited edition, it's probably not diluting any rewards pools. But this is impossible to know for certain atm.)

    It's marketing. It's a sound business decision, too. You can't have a multiplayer mobile game that's completely inflexible and hope to draw in enough support as the years past. We see this now in MTGPQ, the failure to release new content outside of official MTG releases have rendered the content stale to some degree. Popular music, Final Fantasy-inspired music, and music artist renditions of Final Fantasy songs have all kept Final Fantasy afloat. So live and let live. I'm all for change. And guys... maybe a celebrity likes our game!! That kind of power is big.

    Final fantasy purist? You can always go to FFRK (which is based on characters and battles from the games) or one of the single player games. But multiplayer? other people have to play in the world. If the unit is cool, let em exist. :D

    Getting a real celeb in this game is breaking apart the fantasy part of the final fantasy brave exvius.
    Feels weird to see her photo in the game notice.
    I wont get her anyway, so I dont really care that much...
    But I hope this wont be a trend.

    I agree Asf. I'm not hating. And if it were a JP popstar of any sex, I would disagree also. If this was about Justin Bieber, or any other guy celeb, I'd be saying the same thing. And I also enjoy certain types of "new age pop music". S If u want to see the game turn out to be a celebrity endorsement filled with advertising, that's fine. That's your opinion. My opinion is to not have celebrities & keep it in the fantasy realm. Besides, celebs have enough don't they. If u incorporate them in a game, it's like giving a criminal the press & advertising they want. Also, many of the people these celebs will bring in, will be short time players that'll play for like 2 months tops. It will hurt the game. We'll have People like Donald trump or Hillary Clinton as boss fights. It'll be awful for people who enjoy a quality fantasy game.

    Stop endorsing celebrities to try & bring in new players. You will lose a ton of your old school players who play for long terms & spend money. But u will pick up preteens who will only stay interested for like a month or 2 tops. Also, those type of players don't really spend either. And let's get this correct here. It's all about the $$ right. That's why they're bringing in celebs. To bring more people & make more money. It's not even about having fun playing In a fantasy world anymore eh. This game is gonna turn into something totally different than FF now. I hope you're prepared for "Hello Kitty island adventure." Lol

    Don't love her, don't hate her... simply don't know her to care much either way. If I get her unit and she turns out to be decent I'll use her, after all I do have and use Elza quite a lot and she's not a part of the FF universe either...
    I understand the reason why her photo is there on the banner, but I don't really find that her face blends in that well with my cute sprites just underneath it - would have prefered if they downed it a notch and placed her sprite instead on that banner!

    Sorry posted in the wrong thread. XD

    No offense to an amazing game but the insertion of a celebrity isn't breaking the idea that this is Final Fantasy game for me. It's a mobile game. In my opinion, the storyline isn't nearly a quarter of as strong as a main Final Fantasy game. Does that mean that I want the experience ruined? Of course not. But one unit based on a celebrity doesn't hurt my experience in any way. That's why I'm fine with FFBE exclusive units, too. Here, I feel it helps bring attention to the game. And no, not just teen girl gamers like some insist: NO teen that isn't into RPGs is going to sit around clicking buttons on units they've never heard of.

    I suppose it all depends on what Final Fantasy means to you. But I can't help but feel some people's reactions look like that silliness where people were like "Final Fantasy XIII was not a real Final Fantasy game!" As if they alone determined the course of a series or could define it using a singular mold.

    If she's free, I'm deleting her. If I summon her, I'm deleting her. If she's a rainbow, bye game.

    According some cmt i read from facebook, some ppl said they will feed her to shadow or Edgar ::rofl::. If gumi really add her to ffbe , hope it's just limited only. However whatever it's limited or not i will be the one who very happy to ignore her and anything about her in the game. I don't care about a pop star in ff game ( most ff fan will think like me).

    Let's be honest she has no action base. There is nothing action-ie about her. Cool it's a limited edition character but she won't be viable so why bring her in......and if she is made into a powerful character that's gonna shit on the whole fantasy part about the game.....I don't want any celeb in the game period this games is it's own thing and following other games and trends has not been ffs style ......

    i hate this. i don't like the idea of using international star as a unit. it breaks ff. call me a clse minded hardcore ff fan, but i believe that sometimes something is better played within the theme. even if they want to think something out of the box, you can always collaborate with namco, bandai, etc which makes more connection to the whole ff universe, than giving AG as a unit. :mad:.
    gumi really like to ruin things. really stupid.
    why dont they take from very big moba community that continue to grow. for example, dota2, lol, heroes of the storm.
    collaboration with them will have more possibilities to raise lapiz sale and give them more money.
    really pissed me off. :(

    Me neither. I thought FFBE would have been a good platform to introduce unique crossovers. A few months ago, I bet nobody in this forum, or anywhere else, would have anticipated this collab.

    Let's not overreact and see this collab as a bad thing. It's a mobile game trend, with big bucks thrown to Maria Carey, Arnold and Kate Upton just to promote mobile games. It's the gameplay that matters after all right? Ariana or not, this game would not lose its core gameplay simply cos a side vision has been added.

    It is a business decision, get over it.

    A decision like this is not taken lightly, everything goes through filters and filters of departments (marketing analysis,financial, PR, etc. People who gets paid to do this) I assure you, they will make a lot of money because of this...and that is good for the game.

    Even if just a couple of hundred thousands download the game,even if they don't play it (I checked and just on instagram Ariana Grande has 93 million fans!, the game got to almost a 100 million people in one day! ), it will go well for Gumi...just recently they hit the "8 million players!" I'm pretty sure at least 30% of them are not active, but it doesn't matter, what matters are the big numbers which makes gumi money (investors, the game possibly being on top charts which makes it more noticeable, etc.)

    I have played since october and spent around 1k in-game, and guess what? I didn't know about the game until a friend told me about it, I have played many(not all) FF games (even FFRK, also because of a cousin)...so a FF fan, gamer and dolphin was not being reached by GUMIs marketing!

    My girlfriend saw Ariana's post and told me about it (she knew I played the game a lot) 15 minutes later she had downloaded the game on her iPhone...if my friend who doesn't play anymore didn't tell me about the game I would've found out because of my girlfriend!

    It's like on ffxv, there's a whole side mission focused on advertising Cup Noodles! Lol, and also a cup noodles stand which is a shop...yeah it may be a bit ridiculous haha but who cares? A piece of advertising won't ruin 80 hours of excellent game!

    Really it doesn't do anything but good, it brings more money to gumi/se and you can just ignore it if you hate it that much, you don't have to pull for her, even if she's OP she won't be later so what do you care? Like I said, we have over 100? 150? More? characters and some are planning to quit just because ONE? Haha THAT is a childs rant, at the end this is a free to play game, be happy they didn't decide to get money making in-game ads popping up every 3 minutes like many other games...

    Live and let Live...
