    Huh.

    So I went to the FFBE database and looked at these units briefly. I don't know if this is what we will get. These units look severely underpowered for new units, so I'm hoping they will be better than what they are in JP.

    Vincent
    Vincent's LB is a 70% AOE instakill

    other than that, he seems incredibly LAME.

    3 chaining abilities but no chaining families. Basically a niche unit only used for machina and beast kills.

    His TMR is terrible (60% to ATK but -30% to SPR) WHAAAAT
    His STMR is a non-elemental gun that is +175 ATK

    Makes me sad because he was my favorite character from FF7.

    Tifa
    Can chain in the DR family, and she amps up damage to 1250%
    (but no W-cast)
    TDW unit (+40% ATK when DW)

    Her LB is a 100% imperil to water, so that's good

    She seems built around getting her LB up and using it often.

    Still looks like a meh unit. Relying primarily on an LB isn't great because it requires using a dupe to chain correctly. Using her only for her DR ability seems to be ignoring her amazing LB fill passives.

    I would like at least one copy of her, to go with my Lucius TMR, since that will stack for some really nice boosts to ATK for fist wielders. (30% to ATK with fist and 30% to ATK with hat)

    Conclusion
    Am I missing something? Are these amazing units and I'm being unfair/ignorant about their potential?

    -10% per in game news. And the stmr is 2-handed so has the variance

    Tifa was a good dps unit in JP and a bit stronger than the other units at that time, but only for a very short time (not 100% sure if she was even that good, at least not meta breaking).
    It is like you said. A TDW unit with DR chains.

    Vincent was just bad. Mostly TMR fodder.

    A few tickets for nostalgia reasons and to get some bonus and done. Saving for Folka.

    If they are this bad, I just hope some of my friend list will pull for them out of nostalgia.

    I will pull for sure for nostalgia and for my boy Vincent (his TMR is not bad at all in my opinion) so I hope to pull him at least once.

    Why they want us to spend tickets and lapiz again this time? not that I'm unhappy with the new addition, but to not putting together with already available ones is trouble some... I'm out of summoning this time most likely.
