Kal'tsit really can do it all. I feel like it was a mistake for them to start the main story in medias res because there's basically no sense of time or progression, while all these side stories and flashback events are cool and interesting because they can actually showcase a beginning and end.

Don't worry, it's doable. You just have to have good medics and defenders to tank the boss. Fortunately, there are plenty of good yuri defenders. This stage is all about stalling, taking it slow, and letting Eyja do most of the work.

If we kept it to the strictest definition anon would only be left with Scavenger outside Saria/Silence. Maybe Nian/Lava too. You need to be flexible on the yuri otherwise you won't be able to have a full team. Don't be such a killjoy.

That's Mostima and Exusiai.

>>3553224
If you're in need of casters, then unfortunately you're shit outta luck with any other prospects, I think. Eyja and Iffy just happen to be the two best casters in the game who also complement each other gameplay-wise. So it feels like the ship is more or less based off of game mechanic synergy, like Mudrock/Blemishine.

Though it helps that "delinquent x nice girl" is a popular dynamic.
>>
>>3552534
I managed them without knowing how the fucker's insta-kill or smoke setting skills worked with an all-female team, but I was honestly kinda tempted to just use a friend silverass or thorns a couple times. The 5 bullshit red guys at the end don't spawn until all the other enemies are killed first, so I just let one live and get stuck on mudrock for like ten minutes while I got everyone else redeployed.
>>
>>3553241
>If you're in need of casters, then unfortunately you're shit outta luck with any other prospects
And that's the thing that I have the most issue when trying to go for yuri clears, really, yuri casters basically boils down to mostima and Dusk(?), not the most popular picks. As far as yuri offense goes, I guess the strongest picks are Schwarz, Exusiai and Skadi, all non arts, so the tricky part of yuri clears is exactly that.
Also curious, do I have an excuse to use bagpipe now? any material of her with Saileach?

As far as I recall, they're good friends, but Saileach seems to have more material with either Outcast or Reed. Meanwhile Bagpipe is looking for Trumpet, who looks like a blonde patlette swap of Blaze.

Hold onto yo tits, here's my yuri clear too. Challenge mode uh pending godd fuck this map. I will say Pursuer is probably my favorite boss enemy so far, avoids the same old burst strategies while also not being the kind of foe you can just tank endlessly while your damage units plink away. Having to manage positioning, timing and even kill speed is neat.

It's a W rerun in the sense that 30% of the offbanner 6 stars will be her, but it's far from a proper rerun. Like Nian on Dusk's banner. But yeah it's a big event get them savings up.

I threw 50 of my own rolls plus the 10 free ones for Skadi and Blemshine so far, probably won’t be rolling anymore and just see what the freebies get me.

Both are new so I’m kind interested in getting them to E1 and see how they do in this event. It annoys me so much we basically can’t farm chips during an event
>>
F2P here: depleted all my savings for 1 Kal'tsit but also a max pot Akafuyu which I'm fine with because she's a crab and I like crabs.
>>
Well, a weird event, Skadi doesn't make for a good protagonist as she literally said nothing until around up to chapter 6, it got a lot better from then on, Almost looked like a yuri event, but Specter/Skadi relationship is still mostly a mystery, and as usual arknights goes, leaves more mysteries than answers in it's finale, they couldn't help themselves putting some ominous stuff instead of friendly talk from the three. Only thing I'm sure of is that once again it feels like Kal'tsit should've been the main character.

Yeah, it's an interesting event but I think I maybe liked the Abyssal Hunters more when they were just mysterious and badass girls who fight against sea monsters. This whole tainted bloodlines and Seaborn/Aegir possession explanation really doesn't satisfy much. And it doesn't even get into Andreana/Incandescence or Cuora's amnesia or how Deepcolor is totally a spy.

I don't believe any of the limiteds have had a proper rerun except Nian, who only got it because her banner did not have the 300 count pity the others do. Meaning if you want W, you'll have to either get lucky or spark her on the Skalter+Kal'tsit banner now.

Hah, awesome. The digital vision filter is pretty cool for the subtle player-game interface nod they do in places. Hopefully the whole thing won't be first person though, that'd be really weird, but certainly answers the question of what they'd do with Doctor in an anime.

Radiant Nearl is very pretty too. That her kit is built around diving in to save Maria or any other Kazimierz operator is too precious.

Well that was cute. About what I expected the story to be about when it was first announced.
>>
So, I've become curious since an anime was announced, how's this series in terms of yuri (subtext, I assume)?
Also, what's the degree of male presence? I've read somewhere about a gender-ambiguous protagonist, is that still the case? Are the girls all over them because 'self-insert'?
I've also seen an animated short with a male penguin character that seems really annoying (deja-vu), is that a regular character?

It's the standard genderless player cipher, but there's a surprising number of relationships between other women that don't involve the protagonist at all. Ceylon/Schwarz, Liskarm/Franka, Gavial/Tomimi, Blaze/GreyThroat...and those are just the ones that immediately come to mind. Really the player character has next to zero presence in the story or otherwise and it feels like they were added out of genre obligation.

In general, the game's refreshingly open to recognizing and establishing romance between its female characters. One of the central antagonists? Totally a girl she liked in her backstory. The cold director type character attends a fancy party in a mansion full of nobles? All the ladies are immediately all over her. Part of it is a natural side effect of having a cast that's like 70% female, but yeah the game isn't afraid to go there.
>>
>>3562415
Let’s not go overboard here. There are quite a few very shippable pairings but outright romance isn’t stated anywhere in the game or official side materials
>>
>>3562461
I feel like I'm about to enter into some semantic argument but yeah there is. Tomimi canonically loves Gavial, it was the central focus of her event. Schwarz's files directly talk about how much she loves Ceylon and Ceylon's files note that words can't describe the depth of the feelings they have for one another. Scavenger's backstory outright says she loved another girl from her village who loved her back. And that's not even getting into the heaps of subtext around Hoshi/Ch'en or Ch'en/Talulah or whatever the Abyssal Hunters have going on or countless other examples. It's there.
>>
>>3562484
Scavenger is the only one that explicitly went into romance and that girl is someone from her past.
Yea, the relationships are still great and I like some of the pairings. But subtext, no matter how strong, are still subtext, especially to those of us who have seen them a million times
>>
>>3562499
How on earth is Ceylon/Schwarz subtext? Their files openly talk about how the love they feel for each other is so strong it can barely be put into words and they're the most important thing in the world to each other. It's the exact opposite of subtext. Same with Tomimi/Gavial, the whole event is genuinely about Tomimi being dumb gay and crushing on Gavial so hard she devises this stupid but cute plan to make her come back and stay forever.

The gist of it is this:
1. Most of the important relationships that female characters have are with other women

2. There is subtext aplenty, but because of the obvious Chinese censors, don't expect anything explicit unless it's unrequited love or one of the girls is dead.

3. Most men are relegated to being support characters, and none of them show interest in any girls (except Midnight -> Orchid).

4. The player character has no gender by default. There are only a few girls who seem to have feelings for them, but the reasons vary, not just because of wish-fulfillment.

5. You don't need to worry about the talking penguin. He's just an employer to some of the girls.

>How on earth is Ceylon/Schwarz subtext?
While I like the ship, Schwarz's profile talking about them being "like sisters" kind of puts a damper to it.

>While I like the ship, Schwarz's profile talking about them being "like sisters" kind of puts a damper to it.

Only as a way to quantify that their relationship far transcends that of master and servant. They're basically soulmates, and it's up to individual interpretation whether you want to see them as romantic and sexual together or just platonically ideal love. But either way it's definitely not just subtext.
>>
>>3562415
I can't believe you didn't include Saria and Silence on this list? They're arguably the closest thing to a canonical yuri relationship in the game, even if they're now divorced. Ifrit calls them her mothers in an official anthology and it's not exactly a secret that their character artist ships them.

It's really obvious you've only been into yuri for like a year, two at the most. Most of this is standard subtext stuff. Absolutely shippable and some clearly in that "all but admitting it outright" category which is frustratingly common in anime themed media, but subtext is subtext.
>>
>>3562638
I have to question what maintext means if the game going 'oh yeah these two girls are basically soulmates. how much do they love each other? can't even put into words' is somehow subtext to you.

>I've also seen an animated short with a male penguin character that seems really annoying (deja-vu)
I can't tell if you're talking AiFure or Healin' Good with that line.

To answer your question, AK is one of the few games that don't treat the main character as a harem lead where every girl loves (you). Add that to the fact that it sounds like they're hopefully actually committed to keeping the protagonist actually gender neutral in the anime given the voice they've chosen.
It's hilarious to see the self-insertfags seething that the voice doesn't sound like the voice they've imagined Doctor to have, and that """he""" is obviously a guy and should sound like an older man because isn't it obvious!111

Mild spoilers for context of this CG:

Nightingale was a humming along some music that was playing nearby and then Nearl offers her a dance. Liz of course is very physically frail, so she can't dance that well, but Nearl tells her not to worry and takes her hand while they both walk under the moonlight. Shining watches them and calls Liz beautiful. Liz gets flustered and Nearl says that one day, Liz may be able to dance for real. Liz asks Nearl if she will be there if that day ever comes. Nearl kneels down in front of her and promises that she will.

OT3 Followers is the best.

To be quite honest with you, chink bullshittery or not, I think Arknights is one of the few if not the only mobage where I could see actual gay developments happen, because the self-inserting so far is kept to a minimum and most operators are they're own thing and (You) are not the center of their universe.
Still, mobages in general are trashy outlets for a predominantly hetero audience so yeah, just enjoy the little you get but never expect anything.

I picked up this game on release but ended up dropping it after a few months due to very poor performance on my phone. Now that I have a PC decent enough to run an emulator while I catch up on /u/ seasonal anime, I thought I'd try coming back to AK. I have just 2 questions before that happens though :
1) Would it make more sense to start fresh and slowly get back into the rhythm of things? Or try to revive my account with a few leveled characters?
2) When is the next time I'll be able to roll for Exu and Mostima both? This ship is my main reason for getting into AK to begin with, so it would go a long way to have them paired up. I don't mind whaling a bit, if it's necessary.

If Exu and Mostima are the main reason for you to play then you should at least have one of them from the get-go. You can start fresh and reroll until you get Exu from the beginner banner. Then you can build up your resources until Mostima is on rate-up again. If you're lucky she might even be in the shop so you can acquire her directly with gold certificates (always save these up).
>>
>>3595031
New accounts have like a 1/7 chance of getting Exu in their first roll, so you may wanna start over for that. Mostima is a lot more elusive though, she's had a full rerun + a few side banners but there's always months between them.
>>
>>3595031
Stick with your old account. Exu and Mostima will come around every few months and resources/levels are timegated in this game so even a few weeks of playtime is important.

So in the newest Kjerag event, Kjera and Anya's relationship is also something similar to LavaNian in that it's a divine being having a favorite mortal. Kjera reportedly sleeps in the same bed as Anya and is very close with her. She came to Rhodes to be with Anya mostly and mentions her quite often in her voice lines.

"She woke her up and combed her hair, they're talking about how Pramanix is the religious leader of Kjerag. If Pramanix is sure about it.

"She helps her get ready and Pramanix asks her to deliver a letter to Ensia.
Anya: Can you help me deliver this letter to Encia? Then...
Kjera: And then invite her to the holy mountain, right?
Anya: Yes, you're so smart.
Kjera: Wheee~"


Can't believe HG saw how Pramanix's most popular ship was with her brother and said "No, you WILL take this KjeraPram and LIKE it"

Dunno why the pessimism about NPCs remaining unplayable. It's pretty clear some will be eventually. Either HG is already planning on it and are just waiting for the right time, or they're gauging popularity.

Jaye, Flametail, Ashlock, Fartooth, Heavyrain, Mudrock, W, Kal'tsit...

Right now so many wanted Black Knight to be playable instead of Gnosis. For sure she's coming as a future op otherwise they're missing out on that sweet sweet whale money.

Nice! They released Mostima's Operator record like a month ago, so be sure to check that out once she's leveled up enough. Cute backstory.

I think Grani invited Skadi to something, but she only said yes when she told her that the doctor was also coming. Skadi already has tons of doctor pandering in her lines, so it's not like it was unexpected i guess.

>>3620034

Oh please, I'm lvl 109 and started playing July 2020 because of Lap/Texas, and I bet I've been into yuri longer than you've been able to walk

The large ensemble cast, dripfeed of lore/events, and the tiny /u/ fanbase dont exactly for a compelling community. We just repost CN fanart and occassionally talk about normal gameplay like a /vg/ refuge. Cant even get our hands on the few decent doujins drifting around.

I don't see how this is an issue unless you happen to really like SkaGra. Them repeatedly refusing to gender Doctor makes the game more /u/ friendly compared to others that favor a male insert, like Genshin or FGO. Not a high bar to clear, but seeing this as het pandering just means you default to thinking that Doctor is male, which is more of a you problem than a game problem, especially since there is little to no het anywhere outside bit npcs or nobodies like Midnight and Orchid.

>>3620056
The expected reddit/youtube crowd is having a tizzy over Doc not sounding masculine enough. Typical waifufag bullshittery.
>>
>>3620061
If you started playing because of Lapp/Texas, doesn't that mean the game is /u/ friendly to a degree?
>>
>>3620070
No one said this was anything about there being males or not, but that they forcibly broke an established relationship that people liked out of nowhere in the middle of one of their bigger game promotions.
>>
>>3620072
There’s almost never any meaningful new ingame material. You get some interaction once a blue moon basically.

It’s great that AK characters don’t all completely orbit around the self insert. But it’s still a gacha where the characters almost never do anything meaningful together after their initial event, as the game is constantly pushing new characters to milk your shekels.

That was before during the first preview. They've had an update. https://files.catbox.moe/l7fnq5.mp4
>>
>>3620076
Sounds plenty androgynous to me desu
>>
>>3620042
Honestly that's really horrible to me not because of a yuri ship sinking but a friendship sinking. Grani forcibly getting through to Skadi with pure optimism and friendliness and breaking her out of her edgy loner shell a tad was really compelling to me and they decided that needed a torpedo? Lame.
>>
>>3620075
In the end it's a gacha game, i think HG tries to pander to everyone but as always they end up pandering to no one although it's not necessarily a bad thing since there's always headcanon.

>Could you tell us why the Doctor was designed this way, and if there are any plans to reveal how the character actually looks?
>I would like the players to imagine for themselves how the Doctor looks. The reason is that we don't want to get in the way of the players stepping into the Doctor's role by imposing too specific a description on the character.
I've said as much before and it won't stop people that want to stand on the burning pyre of mediums they don't enjoy or psychotic autists that can't stand the thought of people enjoying things in different ways being equally validated but you can't get a more objective statement than the game's producer. Really glad they asked that leading question likely specifically to put the stupid "uncertainty" debate to rest. The only reason your blank profile doesn't beat you over the head with it as hard as Mudrock is (You) do know what your age, gender and history is. Anime is definitely as "undefined" as they can get in a voiced medium without just going the Girls' Frontline route of making the MC female again so it doesn't threaten waifufags the way a male they might not relate with would, writing Doctor out entirely or making it a really weird mute.

VN self-insert logic really doesn't translate well to anything and isn't even good in VN sections. Dating sim pandering logic should have stayed dead but of course gachas adopted and made it the standard practice. All things considered they make the best of the necessary evil. Really appreciate stories not warping to revolve around Amiya's pet rock being important for "existing" and doing the gameplay stages as if they actually required tactical mastermind plays.

To be fair people are used to a lot of bad practices and preconceptions, I guess. Not just gacha but anime and otaku culture in general was built on the big market of "sell sexy girls to lonely men" which got horrifically dull decades ago when it was run into the ground and just kept going. Wasn't even ten years ago gacha devs learned people were okay with longer story sections in their mobile games and that they could write more serious and heavy stories instead of defaulting to low brow titillation and dating sim service all the time. So unfortunately we're stuck with the trashy preconception, especially in "localisers" and the vocal waifufag market that doesn't want it to change. People are just used to getting it shoved on them. Such is life but I've always appreciated that about Arknights.

It is just typical Yostar pandering (see how they insert suzuran into everything) which is lame but pretty lame when compare to other Yostar like Azur lane or blue Archive

They're actually in the main story, not an event. Chapter 6. They're basically kind of like an outgoing/kuudere type, but know that they start out really not liking each other. Greythroat's a bit of a shithead due to trauma.

GT is extremely afraid and paranoid about getting herself infected, while Blaze is very intense about the infected plight. They also have opposite personalities in that GT is emotionally stunted and very blunt, while Blaze is… well, Blaze.
By the end of chapter 6 GT carries a heavily wounded Blaze to safety (with Blaze pretty much bleeding all over her) to show that she's starting to get over her crippling fear of infection, and it pretty much comes about because it's impossible to be around Blaze and not see that she's the most heroic character in this setting.

Yeah, it's Chapter 6 where they get the time together for GreyThroat to develop off of Blaze being the big affectionate idiot that never backs down and helps her come to terms with her fear and trauma. GreyThroat in turn gets to be the level-headed one trying to keep "ridiculous elite operator things no one should take as a role model" in check.

>Doctor, are you afraid? Of Catastrophes, Originite, Oripathy, and the Infected? Mm, even now, I'm still plagued by nightmares. But now, I have Amiya, as well as idiots like that Blaze. It seems that I'm not as afraid as I used to be.
>Blaze is sometimes too reckless. I know she's strong, but... What? You know how to deal with her? Tch... Forget it, I'll ask Amiya how to handle her after we get back.
Makes a cute contrast and endearing relationship.
