So recently, I’ve gotten back into the groove of competitive play. I hit masters which was the target goal. Simple. However, I wanted to climb for Grandmasters. Two seasons ago, I came damn close to it. I was short about a 150 points. It dampened my spirits the following season which I quit in about a week. Today I started at 3491. I dropped out of masters because of some unpredictable variables: rage quits, D/C, lack of cohesion, etc.
Maybe today was going to be just an SR tug of war where I play a ton of games and end up with relatively the same SR… Nope. Not today. I ended up at 3217 today. I mainly play DPS roles with support/tank roles sprinkled in whenever our team’s roster was imbalanced. Some games I was mediocre. Other times I was on fire, but circumstances spelled my teams defeat. I’m not particularly angry at people. I am frustrated at my own performance and wished I had done things differently which definitely would have affected the outcomes of a couple matches. Ah, the beauty of hindsight. It also helps I was somewhat sleep deprived for most of my matches, dulling the rage which I would have directed at my teammates if I was hyper caffeinated and on Adderall. But yelling at your teammates serves no purpose other than to tilt and cause people to rage quit on the spot. My thought process in matches goes like this: if there’s even the slightest chance of victory, I will play my ass off and try to attain victory. I don’t care if there’s six minutes on defense on Point B of Anubis. We play this shit to the end cause there’s always a chance of victory. That’s my little short for this weeks competitive ladder.
In about a day, FGO JP will be getting the Setsubun 2018 event. Thanks to aesma-daeva on the FGO reddit, the event is as followed:
Event duration: 2018/1/24 (Wed) Maintenance Ends – 1/31 (Wed) 12:59
Time-limited high difficulty event.
Complete the main quest and clear the hundred pagodas to receive clear rewards.
There is a Boss Servant per 10 floors of the tower. Defeat all Boss Servants and clear the event completely!
Clear the Final Singularity (Salomon).
There is NO need to clear Epic of Remnants to join this event.
Regarding the ‘Tired’ condition.
Servants who cleared a quest in this event will become ‘tired’ and is unable to sortie for a certain amount of time.
While you can wait until the tiredness disappear, you won’t be able to advance the event that way, let’s use Servants who are not tired and challenge the tower!
The Tired condition only applies if you win. Should you lose or retreat from the battle, they will NOT become Tired.
Servants with the same name as Tired Servants, will also become Tired AKA no using duplicates.
No item or Command Seal can be used to heal the Tired status.
You cannot use the Servants ONLY FOR THE EVENT QUEST. That means, you can use them for non-Tower event quests (Such as story, strengthening, or daily quests)
Regarding the Onsen (Hot Spring)
After you advanced the main quests and clear the quest ‘Secret Healing Onsen Found’ quest, the onsen will become available.
The onsen has a mysterious effect of healing the fatigue of your Servants, reducing the time needed to heal the ‘Tired’ state. You can put at maximum 5 Servants in the onsen.
Place your favorite Servants in the onsen to hasten their fatigue recovery so you can use them again!
You can switch the Servants in the onsen as you want, however Servants who left the onsen will not receive the ‘hastened fatigue recovery’ effect, please be careful.
Servants who are in the onsen cannot be moved to the 2nd Archive, please be careful.
A way to conquer the event
If you equip the Limited Craft Essence [Robe for the Oni] (or [Oni in Human Clothing] if you prefer) that you can get by clearing the quests in this event, the equipped Servant’s ATK will increase by 100%
Robe for the Oni/Oni in Human Clothing
ATK 500 (Max: 2000)
Increase own critical damage by 10%, star generation by 10%, and start the battle with 30% NP charge + During the Setsubun, increase own attack damage by 100%
If you limit break it, the attack bonus increases even further!
In the Setsubun event, there is no ‘Servant bonus’. Therefore, train many Servants and clear the hundred pagodas while switching your Servants around.
TL Note: The name of the CE can also mean ‘oni pretending to be a human’, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. As u/Azraeleon said, if you localize it, it will become Oni in Human Clothing.
Regarding the Challenge Quest
Once you clear the hundred floors of the pagoda, a challenge quest will be unlocked.
You can replay the challenge quest as many times as you want.
During the Challenge Quest, you CAN use your friend’s Support Servant and ‘Tired’ Servant.
In addition, Servants used to clear the Challenge Quest will not be ‘Tired’.
Like usual, the exp, rewards, and drops, are one time only.
2018/1/22(Mon) 18:00 – 1/31(Wed) 12:59
All daily Exp and Mats quests are unlocked during the duration mentioned above.
In short, level as many servants as you can! I only have a total of thirty servants max ascended. I need to work on my remaining SRs and some three star servants and I should be good to go. I’m excited for a challenging event. Good luck to all masters out there. Let’s knock this Pagoda down!
