Wow, we actually had one purge? Damn. I should have posted a meme or something to keep it going. Anyways, here's our log-in bonus doll for January:

agPxKSn
bL9vAJ9

SSG 69 is actually pretty useful compared to other log-in bonus dolls due to her self-buffing skill, but unfortunately she shares the same niche for RF/HG teams as M14, who is better, more readily available, easier to raise due to being able to use duplicates for dummy links, and is eventually getting a Digimind upgrade in the distant future. But, if you don't feel like using M14 for some reason, or if you want another similar doll of that type, then SSG 69 is definitely usable.

The game practically throws M14s at you, so I don't think I'd pick any random 3* rifle over her.

Exactly. SSG 69 is only for people who (for some reason) don't like M14, or people who want essentially another M14 but want to mix it up and not actually use another M14.

Interesting... the Wiki says 65% for the damage buff but that new description says 75%. I have no idea if it's a buff or a correction either.

Wow I was wondering where the other topic went in my post history lol. And hooray for my girl IWS completely smashing the competition in her bracket lol

Weird thing happened to me though...When I was doing 1-6 for the daily Gingerbread Dolls, the boss actually moved aside so I was able to just walk onto the command center and win without beating her lol. That was the first time that's ever happened to me.

You know, i always find it funny that me back when i started and not knowing about the guaranteed 5* at the 10th pull was Negev, and she was the most useless unit i could get as a new player, and now i see everyone suffering trying to get her to the point they vote her for the rescue event, kinda warms my frozen heart

New players get a free 5* on their tenth pull? Didn't know that. Now that I think about it, that's probably how I got Welrod.

I think I bought Ameli's equipment first thing, then spent the next 8-9 days doing tokens. I'll probably get everything, but the main draw for me was the equipment and tokens, not Kalina crap. Not sure why that's ever a main draw for events, honestly. At the very least, NTW's costume counts towards achievements that give actual rewards.

I had some good luck with the production rate-up today. I pulled RFB, Type79, and Shipka, all of which I didn't have yet. I also pulled three Ribeyrolles duplicates that I can use as dummy link fodder, along with 90 cores worth of duplicates that I disassembled. I used about 70 production contracts for all that, and I still have enough resources to do several heavy productions for the other rate-up coming later on. No luck pulling any holiday costumes though, so it all balances out.

I can get to the boss in two turns going down the right side with my main elcheon.

You can also retreat units mid battle so they don't die and drop your score.

svVokPV

Don't bother trying to S-rank 6-6, it's not worth it. You either ignore S-ranking 6-6 and quickly boss rush to get one drop chance and finish the mission, or (if you have echelons strong enough to do so) go to 6-4E and kill all of the multiple bosses on the map for multiple chances to get the drop. It's possible to optimize 6-4E to also S-rank the map while killing all of the bosses for a total of 6 chances to get the limited drop in one run, but it's difficult and requires having multiple very strong echelons.

https://www.reddit.com/r/girlsfrontline/comments/aaoge5/64e_vs_66_farming_routes/

I just plan on boss rushing 6-6 to try and get her.

I usually tank 6-6 with a Thompson/Lee/Springfield/Grizzly/AR-15 team and have zero trouble. You can probably switch Thompson for another good SMG, but it's really the rifles that cut Alchemist down to size, often skipping her "freak out and shoot lasers" attack. I suppose 6-4E would be a good one to grind for Negev on (due to 5 bosses) if you could reliably kick its ass.

What route do you take on 6-6 anyway? I usually do:

T0) Spawn bosskiller in west, 2nd unit in east
T1) Move bosskiller east three, down one; spawn reinforcement on control point
T2) Move bosskiller two spaces to boss

That's just four fights for the bosskiller team, plus being able to resupply halfway.

Anyway, I know a lot of people wanted G36, so having her drop on 1-6 is probably going to piss people off still, haha.

This is what I do on 6-6. Clears in 2 turns, only 1 echelon needed, and you can do a full repair after turn 1 at the helipad if you want to make sure to have as much HP as possible before the boss fight.

Yeah. It takes 3-4 turns no matter how strong you are, which is why it's annoying to grind for G17. I always use my 5HG team for grinding early maps like this to minimize the resource usage, because it's not like you need actually great units when your echelon is massively overleveled.

I usually farm 1-6 with noob units (Lv1-30) since Scarecrow is garbage and you only need about 1000 total power to get through with ease. 5HG sounds fun, though.

I'm kinda glad this event is going on because now I have 2 reasons to do some 1-6 grinding. I could use 3 g17s to get her to 5x and I could also use g36.
