Can't wait for this lineup. I could take Meb or leave her but all the others are super good.

I am! So ready! For Ibaraki! At this rate I think I have a very good shot at getting her to NP5. And between her and Summer Kyoko coming out on Monday in Magia Record I'll get to do like 1000+ pulls in a couple of days. Fingers crossed I don't end up disappointed...

I've been saving most of my quartz for Heroine XX, so I've been waiting for this. I just hope that I can get her. ;>;

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

True form Osakabehime CE is actually the biggest thing I want from the event. Good thing it's a shop CE.

Really, though, all the Summer 3 doujin CEs are things I'm really interested in, from the one parodying We Never Learn, that one Kiara one...


EDIT: Welcome to Hawaii, guys! Go ask Mordred for some surfing lessons, try not to get photobombed by Medb, and above all, give Jeanne Alter a summer she won't soon forget!

Four tix and a new Summer Ibaraki.

One 10-roll later, first thing to show up... Summer Jeanne.  Also the 5* event CE right at the end.

I'm saving the bulk of my pulls for Thursday(?) when Ibaraki is solo on the banner but I decided to pull until I got something for now so I'd have some event CEs to get me started. It took 70 pulls before I got a single new Servant, but it was Ibaraki fortunately. Got three copies of the 5* event CE. Bad luck so far, but I've got 175+ pulls left to get more copies of her later.

Threw three 10-pulls and a couple of ticket at the banner but the only gold Servant was Heracles. Not that Heracles is BAD, of course, but when I'm looking for cute girls in swimsuits I'm not looking for him.

After I saw Ushi's swimsuit I decided to do more pulls on the main banner until I got one of her because she looks cool. My next ten-pull included Jeanne Archer, Ushi Assassin, AND a dupe Enkidu (my first NP2 5*, and a dupe of my first 5* ever). So that's uh... good. :D

Definitely gonna stop there until Ibaraki solo day, I don't need more copies of Ushi.

Tried to get Assassin-Ushi, but I NP2'd Summer Jeanne instead.

I'll wait 'til next year to try for Summer Ushi again.

One minor annoyance, it seems BB pops up and tells you it's okay to skip even if it's a new scene that you haven't seen before. So far I have not seen an actual repeated seen yet but BB has always been there telling me "You've already seen this bit, so go ahead and hit the skip button"

I imagine that... is supposed to be a conditional popup that would only show if you've actually already seen the scene before. Just a word of advice for those of you who care about the story, ignore BB until you've gone far enough into the scene to know if you're actually seeing something new or not first.

ignore BB

Evergreen.

I experienced the same thing you did but chalked it up to Beebs being a tricksy fire trucker, because the #1 thing Beebs is good at is being a tricksy fire trucker. I won't trust that she's not trying to trip the player up at every turn until the event is actually over.

(Note: I have not actually spoiled the plot of this one for myself)

I think it's that actually BB is just automatically skipping over the scenes you've already encountered. The first time you get the actual choice to skip is the second doujin you create; the results (where you lose and Medb wins) are passed over (though the other copypasta part where Robin and JAlter go "oh, we didn't win, better luck next time!" wasn't skipped).

Okay, I did the rest of my pulls (just under 200). I got:

-Three copies of Ibaraki, four total
-Two copies of Jeanne Archer(!), three total
-Like my fifth and sixth copies of Lobo
-A second Nursery Rhyme
-Many many events CEs

No NP5 Ibaraki which is kind of a bummer, I had really bad luck with her for how many pulls I did. Four 5*s is great even if none of them are really characters I wanted.

Farming BB Bucks without a ton of event CEs seems like it would be a real slog. If there's an event I'm glad I bought heavily into I guess it's one with gold gems. Probably wouldn't have bought any of them with just natural farming.

What are good cards for the event Command Codes?  I just got Crest of Humanity and I'm not sure who to give it to.

That's a good question. I still haven't used any command codes at all and I probably should. I just don't tend to do pal point pulls so I don't have many.

While chasing Summer BB, I got spooked...

... by MurderDaughter.

But alas, no Summer servant from "Banner 3" this year.  There's always next year.

Got spooked by AAAAARRRRRRTTTHHHHUUUURRRRR myself while hunting for XX.

Contemplating buying more quartz because I know I'm not going to have quartz for this banner between Kama, Fortnite NEET, and Lambdaryllis.... But that will have to wait one way or another at least until XX's solo rate up.


EDIT: RIP Okita getting a better skill this year. They just revealed the other Saber for 5th Anniversary Rank Ups, and it's Artoria again.

EDIT2: The 5th Anniversary GSSR is only five banners; one for each year of the game. Only Limited Servants from that particular year.

EDIT3: Just off the new Servants alone, Summer 5 is probably going to be a real crazy summer camp...

EDIT4: OHstrawberries the 5th Anniversary Servant is!
Spoiler:

I thought I didn't have any other servant goals in the long-term and that after MHXX, I'd just kind of roll things on a whim.

Now I have a goal once again. God bless the ability to save for two full years in advance, but also curse the two year wait

Just a quick thought buu~uut...

Is there going to be a Summer Event 2020 in Japan?  I would have thought we would have heard of something by now.

The 5th anniversary stream showed a handful of new summer Servant designs (I've seen Illya, Byrnhildr, and Kiara at the very least), so I assume there's going to be a summer event.

Actually cleared the Challenge Quest without using Command Spells \o/

Team was Skadi/Alterlanta/Support Merlin + Hokusai/Jeanne/Mash with Order Change subbing Jeanne for Skadi immediately. Jeanne/Alterlanta/Merlin carried almost everything until I forgot Caster Nero's NP has Ignore Invincible at around Turn 25 or so and lost Alterlanta and Merlin, but I had enough leeway to carelessly screw around and lose Hokusai and Skadi to Archer Helena spamming her Charge Gain skill before Jeanne and Mash finally finished cleaning up.

That's awesome, congrats on the NP5 banana on a stick.

I did elect to buy another quartz pack to try for XX and BB, and after a few hours of PANIK while at work (why isn't the balance being updated why it's updated on GFL maybe it's updated oh god no what if I have to contact support), I successfully vented the last of my quartz getting XX, BB, and Tomoe. And way more Musashi CEs than I'd like. Aaaaand that's the very last bit of paid quartz I'm going to use until GSSR/New Year's. (Also the two of them will probably be sitting on the sidelines for a bit because I do not have the embers to feed them, like, at all right now.)

Event Exclusive?  Does that mean she's the welfare servant?

edit-  Yup, she's the welfare servant.

No Saberfaces this year...  A first for a summer event.
