As the game progresses, you will be introduced to Ex weapons. The later an Ex weapon is out, the more broken it is. In which these later Ex weapons murder Ex weapons that came out earlier (and also murder the characters).
Rebalance is real, but some are rebalanced lazily (they still suck even after rebalance) some are too crazily (which makes the character so broken like a brand new character).
If you disagree with my opinion, please do write your own opinion instead of bashing me. That won't change anything.
Every months always there's new event and this game really have a good english community on Facebook.
I don't know if it's hard for fresh player, but it's not like any other games. The updates it's so consistent and not give you much pressure for doing some cycling quest (its really depends on you).
It utilizes a gacha system, meaning only the characters you can pull gear for will be useful to you. Ultimately, some people may see this as a turn-off, and I saw it that way at first.
But, upon further inspection, and giving the JP servers a try, starting another file once I already had a grasp of what was going on felt so much better.
I don't recommend keeping your first file/data, as beginners to this game are prone to simple mistakes that cost you later on down the line.
If you get the chance, get your bearings on what you're doing, and then delete the game and restart your download. This sounds like a bit of a chore given the amount it downloads, but it's well worth it if you want a file free of blemishes such as spending crystals on characters you don't have gear for.
Anyway, if you don't mind a gacha system and like FF? Try this out.
Bugs after update or maintenance, too many chars (<20 usable) but only 3 for party, summon is boring (same bgm theme, just brv damage), CHAOS difficulty is a BIG mistake, and the gacha rate is a LIE.
My 75k gem purple char is trash (not usable even with 7 board masters), worse than new lvl 70 char without EX. New *8 rainbow EX2++ soon?
tl;dr, rework & gacha simulator. And nope, this is not the best game on gacha market. (0/10) _(:3 」∠ )_
ve it !!
