    If you somewhat manage to handle your free less than 20k lapis per month, you could pull for just one banner unit. With 1,5% rates you should catch markably more easier that one unit. And you only need 8 tickets instead of 10.

    In longer run, you should be able to catch way more 7stars than before.

    Edit: it was also stated that getting random 7star pieces of newer units should be little bit easier. As knowing your posting history, you should be able to now get stmrs with your daily pull luck, instead of those just 7 stars with "only 3ticket and 2 daily pulls" :)

    I'll take Hiroki's word for it, he said to please try it out before casting any judgment on the decision, plus they are giving us a free 10+1 per week for 3 weeks so we can try out the new drop rates without spending anything, along with 5000 lapis (probably split between so many days).

    My take on it is this is far better than JP Summon Fest, at least all summon fest units you can get at any time rather than only during the weeks they are released on banner. A lot of people were so worried about Summon Fest coming to GL and people say they will quit if it is implemented, not to mention UoC's were pretty much useless during JP Summon Fest, at least in GL it keeps UoCs still relevent and helps keep their bottomline. So I don't know why people still don't like this decision? In JP you couldn't even use UoCs for summon fest units, so at least they met us halfway.

    I haven't used any UoCs myself, I relied strictly on either tickets or spending lapis to get 2 of a certain unit, to me this really doesn't affect me that much, I'll probably still use tickets and lapis to pull 2 of one unit, UoC would probably be my emergency lifeline in case I don't have any resources to get my 2nd copy. Also the drop rate increase is nice, but I feel that on banner vs. off banner should be at least 2% vs 3%.

    I think they tried to be as fair as possible for both sides with UoCs, so I understand why it is what it is. Think of it this way, if you are planning on UoCing a unit, at least you only need to pull 1, like the good old days, that's less lapis spent chasing. I don't know about you guys, but usually I get my first unit pretty fast and it's only after I get the first unit then I feel an obligation to chase the dupe copy and it's the 2nd unit where I find gives me the most problems.

    So all in all, I'm happy with what was said regarding the changes, let's just give this new system a chance.

    Yeah I read it just now when I entered the game, haven't logged in for a few hours so I missed the news that usually get released in the early morning hours.

    Hm... I think as long as you are an active player, you'll get the newer rainbow in no time, now that step-up summon has reduced pool (or so they say).

    We are getting many giveaway nowadays. Not like I can say that as a luck sack, but still.
    I think many people get many off rainbows which sucks but on the other hand, it can be a quite new and useful.

    Also, I agree that we shouldn't ask for the same priviledge as those who paying. I mean that while we will enjoy the same rate, they still paying real money for what they want, means they have bigger chance to have new units than free to play player as they pull more.

    I also want to bring the argument that said the dps powercreep above esther is rather a luxury than a necessity. The newer event can still be cleared with "old" unit for now and some of us are the type to challenge a challenge once and forget means getting a new *7 equals waiting is an okay.
    Many complaints when they have cleared all the challenges anyway, so they might have the time to just wait for the newer unit and challenges.

    This is a great change for Summon fest, this is a bit less advantageous for banners that were not fest in JP as all upcoming banners should work like that from what I understand. But I kinda like it. This is a great change.

    They’re smart to do this though. Now that you can only get a prism, and more characters are gonna become limited, people will pull harder for the ones they want. More pulls = more money. For example, I plan on now pulling harder for cg terra cause I can’t UoC her, only her prism.

    Compared to what we would have gotten if we were to get what JP got, which is like 99.5% of the content of this game, it's really not.

    Overall this seems great to me.

    For those who want to bitch about tiny things I think the only thing that can be viewed as a negative (and its small) is the banner rate on on summons. When it was 3% with a 1% on banner chance you had a 33% chance of getting the rainbow you wanted in a crystal. So the rate goes up to 5% and 1.5%, which means greater chance of a rainbow, but there is only a 30% chance of getting an on banner rainbow in the crystal. Like I said, real small negative. The positives far outweigh the negatives, big fan here.

    Not really terrible since in the long run you will get more 7stars. Of course if you definitely want that single unit instantly and run out of lapis there old system could help. But lapis value basically just god 50% buff and i dont see that bad to use 8 uocs per unit if somehow these better odds doesnt work.

    I think it is a greatly positive update considering the rainbow rates are doubled and with updated pools too.

    I am a little salty about the 5 UoC update because of all the people that spent theirs. I hope they give us more UoC's as the UoC'able units get powercrept.

    It is not even a negative considering we got a %50 more chance to get a banner unit. If you get a rainbow, the fear of not getting a no banner unit will be still real but I think we are gonna get almost double the rainbows now.
