Made one last push for Fujino, got nothing. Unless they bring back the banner (or have a free 4* ticket that's restricted to only limited servants), there'll be no Fujino at my Chaldea.  My adventures with the banner only netted me four spooks; A new S-12, NP2 Waver, a new Chiyome, and NP5 Fran (first NP5 4*).

Like Kilga I was farming the Parking Lot for QP to bring up MIKOO~OON!'s skills (after I wrapped up JAlter's).
... I need bones. Lots of them. <sob>

The challenge quest went almost effortlessly for me. Always the right card at the right time so I never even got hit by an NP.

Also Merlin animation update. Cool beans.

My target banner is still a ways away. I must hold steady.

For the challenge quest I tried out a Summer Arturia solo, the first run was only supposed to be testing the waters to see if it was viable, but it was unexpectedly stable and I didn't have to retry it.

With decapitating bunny CE to ensure I could always hit her with a buster card to lower her NP gauge, she... well, that was basically the entire thing in a nutshell. Shiki couldn't deal enough damage to outpace Archuria's healing skill at all, and she couldn't spam her own healing enough to outpace an NP every other turn. No momentum for Shiki either offensively or defensively there. The hardest part was waiting for Fujino to die so I could start chaining properly.

Unfortunately I had no luck at all pulling Shiki, although I did manage to NP4 my Lancer Alter so I'm not even mad. If I ever pull a fifth copy I guess I'll have to grail her up to 100 instead of just 90.

AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRTTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

(Translation: The next event is coming up in a couple of days; and Arthur's next (and currently last) rate up.)

I whiffed on Fujino, so I'm back into saving mode for Atlante Alter, Skadi, and Ortlinde. (Oh god Lostbelt 2 has so many Servants on rateup I desperately want)

The funny part about the Challenge Quest was that the add wasn't particularly resistant to Instant Death; Nito and Shiki shredded it instantly.

Anyone else getting server connection issues?  For some reason just now, the game has suddenly refuses to connect to the game server.

edit-
nm, it's back.  I'm guessing a server issue that lasted about 90ish minutes.

I was able to get in just fine now, though the Fou loading animation was a bit herky-jerky.

Just thought of this, the 2020 Olympiad should be around the same time as the Anniversary festivities.  Perhaps the return of a certain set of "Olympian Bloomers" for players to obtain if the haven't gotten it yet?  Or something else?  Or anything?

Saber Wars Re-Run is live.

(Wasn't this the first event for FGO?)

Did 1 10-pull; Raised Bedivere's NP lvl from 2 to 4, got a 4* event CE, but not much else beyond that.

im bout to cry bruh (not from salt but from happiness lmfao)

after exhausting all my everything and not getting saber shiki nor getting arthur, i only had the maintenance compensation quartz and MHX came home from a 1-roll

i was wondering who would be my next to give gold fous to now that MHXA is done but i guess the gods of the gacha answered that question for me

im sorry this probably comes off as a little bit of a flex post but im just genuinely happy

best wishes and good luck to all you friends on your rolls, if you're going for her!

Do you guys stop using servants as much once they're max bond? I just got Bunyan's bond CE and my impulse is to not use her for farming anymore because it feel like a waste of bond points, but not using her feels like a waste of time.

Then again maybe I'm wasting more time on Bunyan's NP than I think. My farming teams don't tend to have a character with an NP battery and I don't have an MLB Kaleidescope, so I have to open the Mystic Code menu to top off her meter ever time. Maybe a character with their own battery and a much longer animation would be about as fast...?

personally i try to use bond 10 servants less, but if it would stop me from farming quickly, then im totally fine with bringing them out. arash and spartacus still get a ton of use from me even though both are fully bonded, and i still bust out kintoki if there's a caster that mecha eli cant conveniently take care of (either for charge or damage reasons)

i do try to use alternatives where possible, but whats most important for me personally is getting the job done in 3 turns. im okay with taking a hit in speed to be less wasteful in bond points but i try not to bump it up to taking extra turns

I have 3 Bond lvl 10 servants; Raikou, Iskandar, and Angry Mango.
Raikou is my lead damage dealer, so she still gets plenty of use.
Iskandar is my first 5*, still get used when I need to stomp on Casters, but I've let Astolfo step in his role on my Door farm team.
The Mango was done because his Interlude requires him to be at Bond level 10.  He doesn't get used at all, especially now I have Gorgon and JAlter on my team.

Is it just me or is this event mind-numbingly boring? I've never been tempted to skip event story before but if this is what Saber Wars is then I don't like it. Except for the music.

It's made slightly better if one is familiar with Fate/Extra, but on the whole it is on the lower end of the interesting scale, yes.

It doesn't help that there's, like, nothing interesting to purchase with the second-tier shop drop (which is, of course, the only drop I have an event CE for).

The next thing I'm really super interested in is Ibaraki Lancer and she's a long way off. We'll see if I get tempted before then, I probably will. Astolfo NP levels, Ishtar NP levels, and Mordred all could cause me to spend my stockpile. Especially if they end up on the same banner in any combination.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to whiff getting 2M points.

I'm also trying to do the CQ with Hijikata leading, but it's gonna be an RNG-fest, even with CasNero providing Guts support.

I fully plan on hitting that 2mil (currently at 1,336,015). It's coming by sacrificing farming for the shop, but I don't need most of the materials in there anyway, so no huge loss.

There's absolutely no way I'm hitting the maximum ladder. I'm at like 700k right now. Losing the gold Fous is unfortunate, but oh well. Not worth the grind.

I'll probably make the 2m mark as I'm currently at 1.73m now.  Largely by ignoring currency farming (the drop rates w/o lots of CEs are terrible).  Likewise, most the mats there I currently have loads of anyway.

Emergency in Kilgaland

The current THCB event may suck up all of my gacha time and deny my ability to get to 2mil

I'm going to make it to 2M, somehow, but I am large confused as to how I pulled it off. I can only assume due to stubbornness and only ever running with a maximum bonus and refreshing support list for those MHX and Lily's with star of altria equipped.

My absolute refusal to do it with less than maximum efficiency is probably the only thing that saved my ass in this huge grind o3o

Challenge quest was just a Minamoto thing, everyone else equipped with damage boost and support was Waver also having MLB boost. I was worried about it but it wasn't as bad as I thought.

I can't even reliably win the last node with a maximum efficiency team. My Sabers aren't thaaat heavily invested and I don't have a great variety of them, so for reliability I've had to run teams with several non-bonus units. And even then it's slow.

The challenge quest was an Ibaraki opportunity for me. The reliable core of Ibaraki and Mash took care of it no problem.

I'm already past 1.85m so I'll hit 2m regardless. I mostly neglected the shop.

Normally, tossing rolls as soon as I get them doesn't tend to bear fruit.
This is not the case today. Finally, an assassin that can do big numbers!

Two 10-pulls resulted in Mochizuki and another 2038 but nothing else good. Not even any of the banner CEs! :(

Alterlanta is likely to be my PYO 4* the next time that rolls around.

So my obligatory ten-pull resulted in an Anastasia.

I'm pretty pleased, especially since I didn't expect anything.

Apparently, Thomas the Tank Engine isn't one to take crap from anyone.
