Ahaha, I've been playing this game for a long time and yet I haven't left a review yet. Silly me. Well, here's my review.

Short Version: The primary strength of this game is Story. If you primarily want a game with amazing story and characters, like Magia Record, than this game is for you. Highly recommended. HOWEVER, if you want something else, PVP, Co-op, Guild Wars, etc, then I suggest to look for other games.

Now, on to the pros and cons.

+ Amazing Story, and plenty of them. Even the small stories from each girl are worth the read. Almost on par as Magia Record and Countersside. Play this game at your own pace
+ Live2D Lobby, always a plus. But not interactive, it's simply a "CG Replay". You can pat/rub their head though
+ VAs and Music are on point
+ Modern Nexon. Some might disagree, but for me, they're a lot better now. Good communication, managed to secure Miku Collab (there was doubt due to licensing agreement), good rewards along with Road Map publication
+ Good amount of QOL

- STRICTLY for story enjoyer only. Don't even think about PVP. PVP is heavy on meta. Without using meta units, defeat is inevitable
- Other PVE contents (ex. Raids) requires you to build lots of characters. This takes a lot of time and resources. 3* (highest rarity) is very much recommended
- Takes a long time to raise affinity
- Max level of characters are tied to account level. This is what makes PVP horrendous
- Very difficult to maximize a character, requires a lot of resources
- Resources to grow a character differs between the students, based on their academy. This is what makes the growing the characters part tiresome. If you want to follow my approach, "Follow your heart, not the meta", focus on characters that you like.

So, as you can see, this game is solely made to enjoy the story. If you want a more "balanced" game, Epic Seven and Countersside is more for you. This game is like Fate Grand Order, you play this to enjoy the story and characters. Well, have fun. Oh, and DON'T SKIP THE RAID (Total Assault) story! It's important. Even our main character said in an event, "Wait, that was canon??" when they're facing Raid Boss outside the Raid Boss Mode, haha.

This is the only review you'll need before playing. Everything else out there either blindly hates it cause it's nexon or salty cause the "gacha" can't stress this enough the gacha system wasn't FAIR! OMG IMAGINE the gacha system not fair couldn't be me. Anyway a proper review would light this game for its true qualities which was great compensation rewards well optimized with a few hiccups that are being addressed. The story is great which isn't common in gacha games much anymore. The Sensei Student relationship is very cute and actually interesting. The game pronounces your username which is a very neat feature. Their is literally a reroll button built into the game for your convenience. Obviously as with many other gacha games auto does everything in the early stages but you could always take control for a better result. The game offers missions story events and PvP with a cafe that you can decorate it's like the perfect one stop gacha that you can enjoy in your own pace without feeling stressed. Not too demanding just a good enjoyable gacha with your normal mediocre gacha rates. If you don't wanna reroll and don't like the rates you should still try since it's a nice side game but there's other stuff out to play. So stop hating in the game like children and driving players away with these bad salty reviews.



After playing it for week Gameplay 2.5/5 : gameplay of blue archive is chibi battle style, you cannot control your characters and you can only click their skill, so the gameplay will bored you to death most of the times, there's a hard stage of course from chapter 9 or chapter 10 i think, but after that ? just auto on everything for equipment PVP : pay to win hard, you only need 3 meta sniper that basically to op and all content involving around them, and PVP is RNG based, so if you want to win or lose it's not up to your skill but your luck and good luck with that, AI will make you lose often, and PVP is one of your main gem income when you reach endgame Raid : one of your source income for gem beside PVP and it's pay to win, good luck compete in raid with your 3 unit when people that have money can basically stay on top with their unit all 5 star upgrade and with meta team as well Story 2/5 : The story itself is between good and bad, good is that is kinda dark and the plot is good and bad is the way teacher or us talking to students, from what i see when i play the chapters and see the dialog, i can see we(teacher) is a bit of a$$ho1e, we basically talking to our students with rude manners and the worse part is the student didn't hate us one bit, just they like "ok whatever we still like you", it's just so annoying when they do that Gacha 2/5: The gacha aspect itself is bad, i take back what i say, the rates in this game is so bad Featured unit rate up is 0.35% Non featured unit rate up is 0.12% so you will have change to get 1-2 stars everytimes, you only get 3 star if you are really lucky and the pity/spark is 200 pulls For dupes, featured unit give you 100 shards so you need 40 multis to get your characters from 3 star to 4 star and for non featured unit give you 30 shards Paid currency is good and kinda worth it imo Dev 2.5/5 : This is nexon we're talking about, i guess everybody know nexon, we don't know when they will screw this game since the JP version being hold by yostar and not nexon, so just prepared if nexon screw this game like counter: side KR version I give this game 2/5 This game is normal auto chibi game, if you are not used to play this type of game, just prepare to get bored real quick, and with nexon holding the game, we don't know when they going to screw this game, so just be prepared for the worse i guess
