    Greetings! Memel0rd here.

    Within the upcoming months we will be receiving the 7*s.

    Currently we do not know if we are going to see big changes or not.

    However, I want to be prepared for it.

    I opened a strawpoll on how I should approach the 7* batches. If you don't know, most likely we are going to see one batch a month in which averagely I'd say 10~12 units or so get their respective upgrade. Obviously I am not capable of writing a single in-depth review about every one of these.

    Currently a review takes me about 2~3 hours depending on the unit. Converting my initial post to reddit also takes about 15~30 minutes usually. Doesn't sound like a lot, but if you consider that the batches aren't small... this stacks up very fast.

    Thus I want to know if YOU prefer to have a few selective reviews where I pick like 3 units out of the batch that I am going to review generally or write a big overview of the entire batch. This means that I won't go into as much detail as I normally would, but would fit the style of a 7* batch a lot better in my eyes.

    To the strawpoll: https://www.strawpoll.me/15823003
    There'd also be an extra option that I did not include. I could possibly write the overview AND one or two reviews, but I doubt that I have nearly enough time to get that done.


    Either way, thanks a lot for all of your support! For the people that did not know: I did get unbanned at friday.

    Have a nice day!

    Well that's a tough one, but still I think an overview of the whole batch would be much better

    I'd say an overview, and maybe going all out on the units you find amazing/special/whatever ? I dunno. A batch one would be enough for me anyway.

    Overview much better! I think that brings the best overall knowledge to us when deciding what unit to awaken :)

    Edit: Besides... We all know there will be an in depth review for at least Tidus and Wilhelm anyways ;)

    Yeah, the batch one, so we all know info about all the units. Otherwise, if we don't own the two or three units that get reviewed, we wouldn't have info on the units we do have. Either way, I'll read whatever you decide to post ::up::

    How about a 4th option: Do the overview, but instead of a select few reviews you go a bit deeper into any global changes (if there)?

    Personally I'd prefer in-depth reviews of the "best" units in each batch, sort of like we have now where the Memester ignores most 4* bases, etc. but seems I'm in the minority.

    I'll read the overviews I guess, but I think we'll be wasting time talking about units that are basically trash 7* when we could talk properly about the great 7* monster forms. Meme's a man of the people, I'm sure he'll have us all covered one way or another ::up::

    glad to see u back !

    i like the idea of getting as much possible info of the first batchs, but u can skip units of the bottom like marie and stuff because didnt bring radical changes.

    honestly small select batches out of the review because, it's not like Meme-chan reviews every unit just the 5 star and while it would be nice to get them all, there isn't much reason to do all of them.

    I think is better the overview, but in lazy Gumi weeks, you could have time to review meta changing 7*s, such as Loren or Tidus. You won’t stop reviewing upcoming units, right?, RIGHT?::scream::

    A batch overview, with maybe a little more attention to gamebreaking mechanics like Loren's breaks on a select few who warrant it.

    => I guess this would be my favorite, but I can't give you the time you'd need for that, sorry. So it may be wishful thinking! Or would it help if we'd say: "Pretty, pretty please!"? ::innocent::

    I think the most important info to get out is a brief overview with key changes such as new chain moves/partners, cooldowns and W-/T-/Q-cast.
    And maybe rankings of TMR-ability importance to help people prioritize moogles/farming.

    The damage comparisons aren't all that interesting anymore. Since there's so many variables and dupe-chaining becomes less common with larger chain famillies, more 10-mans and a larger diversity in friend units.
    The Seph review/discussion - where people wildly misinterpret/misrepresent your math - clearly shows this IMO.
    It's like reviewing SUV:s, and the main thing many people pay attention to is the performance in a theoretical dragrace situation.

    Or maybe something like: "Should you awaken?", some sort of ranking which units units profit most from their 7* awakening?

    This. Batch reviews should be better because some units will still use their 6* skills a lot. 1 or 2 in-depth review for the most game-breaking or unit-changing 7* awakening will be really great.

    I guess I just start to realize how much work this would be! Meme, you need some assistants, some sort of "Memel0rd Army"!

    I would like to see GL exclusive units reviewed everytime they are in a new batch.
