    I'm rather perturbed that there are 2 uoc tix behind paywalls and those bundles aren't even that great. For US$2 less you get only half the bonus amount of trunk of lapis and some junk most of us don't "need"
    As a ffbe bargain hunter in the past I've been on the lookout and have pulled the trigger on good bundles a lot. but the past 6 months or more have just been poor and poorer bundles (aside from black friday which was a good enough deal to drop me off the f2p contest.)
    So I'll be two UOC behind the pack out of principle. these bundles will go down in infamy aside the Laura Croft golden gun bundle.

    sorry @Caliber to steal your thunder

    Skipper for me too - only thing I’d pay money for at this point is fountain of lapis. Now if they have more Gil bundles...

    Sure, if you're not willing to spend money on this game, you will still be good without those, but that doesn't change the fact that they are of great value. Of course you won't get full lapis price with a select ticket in there, but you do get lapis, plus more regular - and 4* - tix, which is great.

    Pretty sure those two bundles would have sold much better if they came before we got that twentieth free select ticket.

    I mean, they are Unit of Choice...

    There are 78 5 star bases currently in the summon pool.
    The odds of pulling a rainbow rest at 3% total, 2% for off-banner.

    So that’s around a .025% chance to pull a specific off-banner each summon. You need to do 260 summons to have a 780% chance of pulling a rainbow, for a 10% chance of pulling any specific off-banner rainbow.

    260 daily summons is 65,000 lapis. The $99.99 gives only 18,000 lapis, so you need to buy 3 of them and also 1 of the $59.99, 1 of the $9.99, and 1 of the $6.99 bundles...or $376.94. At least.

    How much did you say that bundle was again?

    remember the guaranteed 5* summon for us $50 and how we got an apology for it. there should be the same sentiment from the public for this as well. withholding your money is the only way to speak efficiently to gumi. I am not ok with this business decision. therefore I won't buy it
    sorry hoss. I'm just stealing your thunder, not your place

    I get it if you’re not inclined to spend money on the game, or that generally you want to do banner summons and step-ups, but, these are seriously good bundles. 7,000 lapis and a Unit of Choice ticket, $22 by Caliber, as well as a few tickets worth at least 3,000 lapis?

    I know my calculations are a bit opinionated . You still get about 8 total rainbows, 5 which are off banner and 3 that are on-banner. Well, if we value the bundle at 10,000 lapis excluding the Unit of Choice, then the bundle is worth at least $79.98, but it isn’t even. And there is a Unit of Choice ticket. You can have your own opinion, but the Fan Festa Bundles are decidedly, subjectively, good.

    The $50 5* was way worse than this in my opinion, because it was a random 5* (which has very little value) and you didn't get anything else (at least as I recall). If you normally buy lapis, these bundles are great deals, because you essentially get the UoC tickets as a topper. If they had tried to sell a UoC by itself for $50, I would see where you're coming from, but these bundles are not that bad considering that UoC tickets are widely considered to be the single most valuable item in this game.

    Of course if you're F2P or don't want to spend that much on the game, then it's your choice not to buy. But I would bet there will be quite a lot of people who will bite on these.
