    Damn, I just heard the news. Tifa/Seph pity is 60k instead of 40k. Unless I get 1% banner lucky, I'll only be getting 1 now since I was planning for 40k ::cry::. And there is zero chance I'll be rollin' thru town with any EX+3s in the passenger side. Hell, Eax+2 most likely just a pipe dream now.

    I think Imma now plan to hold off until Seph's banner (assuming he comes right after Tifa, but I put NOTHING past Gumi anymore), hope to RNGesus I can luck into him and then go back and shoot for Tifa.

    Freakin' 60k pity...WTF?! :mad:

    Found this while browsing Reddit:

    Post itself

    ''Some math about pity pulls:

    8 ticket pity pulls: you get 11 units per pull which means you get 88 units total or 89 including the pity
    10 tickets pulls: at 11 units per pull you get 110 units or 111 including the pity
    60k step up, 20 ticket pity, you get 4 tickets per lap so you need 5 laps: it gives 43 units per lap so a total of 215 units or 216 including the pity

    While the premium NV pity is more expensive by 20k lapis it gives us like double the amount of units of a 36k pity or 2.4 times more units then a 40k pity.

    for the 36k pity you get 36 000 lapis/110 units=around 327 lapis per unit
    40k pity is 40 000/88=around 455 lapis per unit
    60k pity is 60 000/215=around 279 lapis per unit

    So basically the most expensive pity gives the most units and has the lowest unit/lapis value in the NV era(not going to math out the 7* era value) and is the closest one to the daily 250 lapis pull.

    While it is more expensive 3 laps equals to 36k lapis and gives a total of 43 * 3 =129 units which is way more units than what we are getting.

    Just doing some math, not saying that I like the 60k pity and I still hope we get the 40k back but it's not as bad as it sounds.''

    I don't agree with this math. Imo, one missing big detail is how many of those units are useful. Then, people pull for pity for guaranteed units, not the random units along the way. The target should get more weight than random.

    I do understand what the reddit dude is mathin' here, but that still assumes one has the required 60k to pity, 120k for both. I don't/won't because I wasn't able to plan properly, so now I gotta be choosy.

    Kinda like when my wife runs to the store to get something and I say "don't spend more than $50 please". She comes back with twice as much as what she went for and says "it was double the amount for $80!". I'm all "...but u still spent $80 instead of $50 ".

    I can already see Gumi using this same "Premium" type of banner for future GLEX units like NV Reberta (they now have clear incentive to make as much $$$ as they can off of her) as well as a potential NV Esther on a future CoW. I am effectively going into full lockdown hoard mode with my lapis. I'm still 20k away from 60k lapis and this anniversary has done almost nothing to increase my stash. I'll throw some tix at Tifa cuz...Tifa...but other than that I have no need to pull for any units atm.

    So basically it's 50% more lapis for the pity unit, while giving a whole lot more trash.

    Yeah, that's what I saw too. I mean...sure, pulling more times provides more units. But the game's content has made certain that units are either completely irrelevant or only a portion of 1% of them are useful. You'll pardon me if I don't rejoice at the mountains of Lotti and Domino I will pull on the way to pity Sephiroth. Which will of course, provide me a character that requires I spend even more to unlock his actual potential.

    One might as well extol the virtues of pulling on banners with 100k lapis compared to 5k.

    I couldnt even tell you the last time i actually even "Pulled" for a unit. The power creep is so stupid it dont even matter what unit u get, next week they will be irrelevant.
    Just pull when u feel like it. smh

    We virtually could have really, REALLY fucked this game up if after OG NVA Tifa, NOBODY pulled. We have a unit that is STILL relevant today, ESPECIALLY with Nichol that just came out.
    She switches element with ease, and packs a big ass punch STILL.

    Im just saying tho....

    Yeah I agree it sucks that the pity is 60k and didn't mean that it should be like that, but at least 1 positive thing about it is that lapis per unit it bit lower
    when pulling and you have more attempts to get NV from your pulls (idk if that made any sense ::haha::)


    But I'm mostly a casual player now, I rarely spend any money anymore so it doesn't really matter to me what the pity amount is.
    I pull for the units that look cool with my limited lapis. In the time after I started playing again, I went to pity once and that was to get WDLing

    I hope the 60k pity won't be normal from now on
