From what I played on the JP version there was an area where you teamed up with other people against bosses (Ifrit from X, Hecatonchiere from XIII (probably spelled that wrong) etc.) and you get stuff like their cards.

So what you're trying to say is that it's a mobile RPG.

I did the same thing. I really tried to enjoy it, but the tutorial absolutely put me to sleep and then I got lost in menus and stuff that I had absolutely no interest in doing. I can see where this might appeal to some people, but it turned me off right away.

I'll go back to Brave Exvius, which has its hooks in me for some bizarre reason I can't begin to fathom.

I'd like to at least finish the Classic dungeons in Record Keeper but I'd love to start Mobius as well as the artwork looks gorgeous.

I'm a huge Kingdom Hearts fan, but Unchained is kind of crappy and kind of nasty about wanting/needing you to spend money on it (in comparison to other gacha games I've played, at least).

Anyway, if you're ever interested in going back to Record Keeper, hit me up over in the |OT| and I'll explain anything you need explained.

I like it so far, I like the choice to do things as they open up.

Dude you barely do anything and the Knight reveals himself as Garland? Really? Geez menacing knight with a big sword I wonder if you're bad.

For those in Japan that have played before, is it worth rerolling to get a good pick before committing and starting to play?

Every single menu has a completely different layout, and there are a billion different mechanics to learn all with ridiculous names. Yep, it's definitely a final fantasy game. I'm also enjoying it so far, especially after the "much dying" moogle =)

Graphics look much better now that I've found the resolution options, but textures are still... yeah. Also, does anyone know what an Extranger card does or how I should use it? This game literally gives me nothing to go on.

I'm guessing that we get different starting rewards than the JP version, since that rerolling guide says that we can do our first job gatcha pull right after finishing the tutorial. Even with all the preregister/facebook bonuses, I don't have enough summon tickets or magicite to do a single pull.

probably increases the render scale, as it seems it's rendering the game in lower resolution than native on most ios devices

Yeah with regards to the constant connection... You think this is a data hog?

Hopefully someone can do some testing

Seems to be more a Granblue kind of thing where premium summons make a difference but 90% of your strength comes from actually playing the game.

Confirmed: the monthly bundle is 3000 magicite as opposed to the 1500 in JP. That's 25 bucks.

Still going through the early leveles, but I'm not sure if I want to spend that much time in the game so far. Stuff is all over the place as far as UI, progress, upgrading, and even gacha pulls go.

There are so many gacha pulls options.

Yeah, I'm incredibly confused by the cluttered UI and abundance of gameplay systems. Top notch presentation as expected, but this is really killing my interest in the game. Wish it was a paid app with more straightforward design.

I've played up to Chapter 4 of the Japanese version, and I don't think the tutorial is very engaging... or the first chapter for that matter. It's a bit of a slog but after clearing the first chapter, the game feels a lot more 'open' with new jobs and abilities, as well as the better tempo of the battles.
Been trying to log in the international version but after downloading I've not been able to.
Also...
The moogle... well...

Assuming that the overall setup for the game remains the same, Magicite will actually be farmable to a degree. JP version has drops for them in dungeons. They're semi-rare but you can earn quite a bit as you progress. It's only 20 magicite per drop usually but it adds up after awhile.

Having played mobile games for a couple years now, I've found my sweet spot is three at a time. As in I don't have the time to keep up with more than three of them at a time.

Currently playing Final Fantasy Record Keeper, FF Exvius, and Pokemon go. I'm kinda in to deep with those three to drop any of them. Reading impressions in this thread for Möbius is not making me want to start it up, but I'm assuming this game is a time sink commitment like all the others. Is it correct to assume that?

Honestly the narrator made me cringe so hard couldn't stomach it. Its weird Wonder Flick had amazing gameplay yet failed as a mobile rpg Mobius didn't seem terribly tactical, but I only made it through the tutorial.

The energy system seems to stack when you level up which is nice. Always sucks in say KH, or BE where you level up when you already had a full, or close to full bar.

Looks like this game is less hyped than say Brave Exvius. Might be the lack of translations outside of English.
Anyway, I kinda like it, I'm not seeing the point of rerolling right now with extremely limited cards and jobs pool.
