    Sooooo, as some of you might know because I very subtly hinted at it ahem, I went all out on Lasswell's banner, and with "all out", I mean I pulled the non-repeatable step-up and pulled about 150 tickets, which is half of my whole ticket stash, and I'm kind of reluctant to continue.

    What started out as a pulling marathon with absolutely no rainbows dropping developed into a crazy off-banner fest, and I'm kind of... discouraged by now.

    The thing is, I pulled 13 off-banner (not including the guaranteed rainbow on step 3) in total, and 0 on-banner (also not including the guaranteed copy), and this is a little very very super duper extreme crazy?

    I usually always assume bad RNG opposed to some conspiracy-tweaking the rates from gumi, aaaand this could very well still be very bad RNG, but it has happened before that gumi simply forgot to add the rate-up.

    So I would really really like to know from all of you that did end up pulling: Did you get any on-banner Lassies? I still assume I just have a bad streak here, but I would feel better if I knew for certain ::rudecat17::

    Your account has been flagged for lowered rates on Lasswell since it's been noted you're a big fan :P

    If you still have 9,9k, there is a bundle in the shop with the lassprism to get him to 7*.

    I pulled 10 tickets and i got one rainbow and I stopped. It was my second Tifa.

    I had the same when pulling for WoL. Only one guaranteed copy of him. Nice rng.

    Dislike, purely because you didnt get him. That sucks.
    Theres a Prism Bundle for 9900 you might want.
    Hopefully they accidentally nerfed the rates and you can get compensation...

    Something similar happened to me on xmas and black friday banners. 3 laps on xmas (it is that 2-step each style) gave me 9 off-banner rainbows. 2 laps on black friday gave me 5 off-banner rainbows. (Although, I got lucky on the on xmas banner later, and the 5 rainbows from black friday had 2xGaluf in it). Then, on WLD.Fina and A.WoL banner, I scored one each on the first step of each banner.

    Is there supposed to be a rate-up on his banner? Normally there is a tag on the banner and I don't see one. But for a mere 34k lapis, u can get that guaranteed 7* Lasschair ::poop::

    I do get what ur saying tho. Personally I think that any and all advertised units/banners should have a major rate up. But it's Gumi. What can ya expect?

    It's always the one you really really really want that the RNG goes flat on. Can't speak on results as I didn't pull this time.

    Desire Sensor (yeah that **** from MH) it's here on FFBE too.

    You'll need to turn it off before pulling

    Well lets see, I spent 50k lapis and over 40 tickets on the xmas banner and ended up with 1 lev and 1 lucas.

    FOURTEEN off-banner rainbows

    So yeah, sounds like this is the new norm.

    All my 5* EX tickets have been trash too. 11th DF, 3rd Oldman, 5th Nalu....like come on wtf. I don't think I've ever gotten a NEWER 5* base from an EX ticket - ever.

    Sorry your pulls sucked. I def feel your pain. Take the 9.9k prism in the shop and run....

    I threw the measly 17 tickets I had at it just because I liked Lasswell and (probably) still have a decent amount of time to save for the Gullwings banner. While my overall luck was terrible (I think this is my first time... ever? not even managing to get a single gold crystal on a batch of 3 star tickets), every single one of my six 4 star tickets was a Scarito. So unless it's *only* the rainbow rates that erroneously aren't increased, it would seem that the rates are correct and you just had a real bad RNG day.

    Which, sympathies: been there myself.

    damn, I hate everyone is having such terrible luck... I guess i got lucky. 37 pulls and 8 rainbows. I got only 1 HK Lasswell out of those, but that is an incredible rainbow rate

    The only advice I can give here is that with limited resources don't hunt for stmrs. Banner rates are horrible. You're far more likely to get unlucky. Sometimes I watch pulling vids of whales that aim for stmrs. Its not pretty and most of the time they quit after spending 75k+ Lapis, resort to uocs.

    Good luck on your hunt for 7* Lassie. And if you really love him don't feel bad for using a stmr mog. That's what they're for.
