Even though I got Zenaida... I disapprove of what Gumi has been doing

    Yes, Am one of those who got Zenaida quite easily through tickets but even so I can understand the frustration of many.

    Enough about how much a cash grab recent events have been but everything starting from Anniversary has been disappointing.

    Firstly, we didn’t even get a proper anniversary like the last ones. This one felt rush and unplanned. Gumi blames it on Covid etc.

    Then they start rushing and skipping content to bring in Neo Visions. But not without milking the fan base by introducing big banners after big banners with little content in between.

    The game is not supposed to be like that. We spend money / lapis for units and we are supposed to enjoy them for awhile with content to match.

    But in the recent weeks we have been pulling unit after unit with no content to use them on. Before they become redundant the week after. My Irvine just got made redundant by Phoenix Jake who is now redundant because of Zenaida. That’s wrong.

    the 36,000 lapis no guarantee banner for Zenaida is also wrong. It’s plain greedy. If Zenaida was released the way it was in Japan as a free unit, there will be no way to spend money to get Zenaida. Yes, some may get lucky but some don’t. But still, no way to “pay” for Zenaida. And gumi obviously put a lot of effort changing that by introducing this new banner type. Yet, so much effort to milk $$$ but zero effort to introduce content. We haven’t seen stories for a long time. So many banners skipped.

    I don’t want to support this game anymore.

    Well, quitting time is it?

    Joke aside, the points are pretty valid - and its annoying, to say the very least. Wait until the shitshow folds out. We re not done yet. Pone well is a big if but kuja sure will come.

    Imagine fully potting Irvine and even before he can be used Phoenix Jake comes. Fine . F you gumi. Pulled Phoenix Jake and fully potted. I 7 star him after DV as the banner was still running while DV was on and I only UOC at the end.

    Before I can even use Phoenix Jake, zenaida !

    Same story from Elly to Selphie to Ace/Rem and then UDD.Fina straight after.

    lakshimi Lid and Vaan.

    It’s BS !

    unit releases always have been faster than content.
    I agree it seems even faster now.... but still.

    If you really disapprove, stop whaling so hard and pulling every unit.

    Everyone, EVERYONE knows by now NV is coming soon and Gumi is rushing banners FAST.
    When Irvine was here, he was a STMR unit ( Cloud was better and the LB was super long)
    When his banner dropped I pulled for him for the sole reason of his STMR and never used him.
    Phoenix Jake was deemed as a finisher that will be powercrept very soon ( which happened )
    There is literally no reason to pull for Fina if you had Ace and Rem. Again NV is soon.
    If you can't control your pulling habit then that's your problem.
    Vaan's banner was so obvious many knew it was the next banner after Lid. I'm sure you knew that.

    Concensus here, we have the luxurious crystal ball to know what's coming and what's not pretty accurately most of the time.
    Gumi needs to make cash, and with the rush of NV they will keep bombarding us with a good banner after the other until NV comes. I wouldn't be surprised if Kuja is next week.

    Gumi did a really bad job with this anniversary so far. I also understand @Senturion being salty due to very frequent meta-banners. However, I think it is absolutely gumi's decision and if this way of rushing banners is their new business strategy, players can decide if they support this by playing and/or paying or if they quit. If one decides to still play this game, gumi's new business decision may require overthinking pulling strategies, but I cannot blame Gumi for anything; yet, Gumi has to deal with the consequences of making the playerbase salty.

    Still even with Zenaida, imho Jake is by no means "redundant". We had this discussion several times and I do not see much sense in another one on this topic because one "side" cannot convince the other.

    None of the units you mentioned are redundant. The current content is still easy enough to be tackled by them all, even DV. Will you be Top 10 in DV without *the* most current units? Probably not, but that's the whole point of ranking and chasing units...to get people to spend money to be on top. Otherwise, you don't really need to upgrade with every new release. Not needed one bit.
