I lucked out on an SSR Vegeta as well

Someone should tell the devs that in-app purchases only work if you give the player incentive. Because after about 50 stones the best I've gotten is an SR Chiaotzu, and if that's the kind of drop rate they want to offer I'm not at all compelled to spend real money on their game.

I've noticed this with OPTC as well. I'm happy to spend a couple of bucks on the game but the drop rates are so low, even during rate up events, that it's not paying real money to roll. There's also not much you can do with the gems/jewels so there's little incentive to buy anything at all.

Finally rolled my third SR - Mr. Satan, Goku, and now Vegeta.

Which is great, because all my R's leveled to SRs are capped at 60.

Here's Goku! He's a Z-awakened SR, but his Super Move is at level 1 because I've never found another one of him.



Here's his best buddy Krillin! He's a Z-awakened R, but I've found 3 of him and crammed them all together, so his Super Move is 3.



When you combine two identical characters, it bumps up their Super Move on the Training screen.



This makes their super do a lot more damage. That Krillin is a loving beast.

Hope this helps

I'll crosspost from the Android thread, as suggested.

My main team is Saiyans/Ginyu/a robot featuring the event SR Vegeta, the R Pilaf Fusion Machine the SR Burter (AGI), Recoome (PHY), Nappa(TEQ) and the R Jeice (STR). Jeice is REALLY good Z-Awakened. +1000 attack if he goes first and even better if I get Burter to go first. Tough as Nails and Brutal Beatdown tie Nappa and the Pilaf Robot in with the Ginyu guys. Almost any set of 3 here has good links. I wish the SR AGI Goku I had fit in better, but he has no Saiyan links, so he's basically stuck on Z-Warrior teams, which is lame since he was my starter pull.

I also built a respectable World Tournament Reborn team. This is led by a R AGI Videl that I Z-Awakened, with the Z-Awakened N Hercule (INT), Jewel (TEQ), Killa (STR), and Pintar (AGI). Also that PHY Recoome because I needed a PHY guy and why not Recoome? Z-Awakening's type modifications cover a lot of the gap left by these guys being mostly R*.

Really, I feel like Z-Awakening Rs is the way to go at least in the mid-game. The Super and Extreme <attribute> bonus is really nice. That World Tournament team should be junk by all reckoning, but they hold up okay. My only decent INT fighter is that Pilaf Robot, too, so I'm focusing on getting them up to snuff with a Z-Awaken.

I've spent too much money, but oh well. I need Captain Ginyu and Guldo, then poo poo can get REAL.

I'm having a really hard time getting INT people that don't suck.. I wonder if their stats are all weighted funny. I had an INT SR Zarbon, but I already use a different Zarbon on my team, so I let a INT SR Dr. Gero eat him. I'm not too fond of him either, but meh.. unless I get Piccolo or Gohan, I guess I'm stuck with him.

So after getting Gohan initially you can then just grind the lowest difficulty for infinite Gohan's to max one out with? Because if so I know how I'm spending my stamina today. Kid Gohan is a drat beast and is easily the hardest hitter on my team right now.

Are you guys going for 1 of each type, or some overlapping types and using a color as a "wildcard", or what is your strategy?

I was attempting 1 of each type, but ended up with overlapping Blues and Greens.. I keep flip-flopping my Int/Phy slot because I don't have anyone great to fill that niche. I was using a R Z-awakened Chi-Chi until I landed a bunch of Krillins, which upped his Super enough for him to be more viable than her. If I found an SR+ Str, I'd replace him pretty quickly..

Really depends on what I'm doing, but I feel like I do better with a balanced team. I feel like having good links and at least having someone to take neutral or reduced damage most of the time is way better than doubling down on a good leader ability like Vegeta's. I was running three AGI guys and was getting rocked by any TEQ trash that came down the road and that's stopped while still leaving Vegeta and Burter to be my big special guys.

Now, Z-Awakened AGI guys obviate a bit of that need, so go whole hog if you have a bunch of AGI SR/SR*s and Saiyan Elite Vegeta or a 15 or 20% attack boost guy like Jeice (STR), Android 19 (PHY), or Gohan (TEQ).

Kid Gohan is a fantastic leader for a Z-Warriors team, for example. It's pretty easy to rack up at least R* Tien, Yamcha, and Chiaotzu and a Goku.

I've had a hell of a time finding a good INT character. I seriously have two. A R* Chaiotzu and my freshly SR* Fusion Machine Pilaf. Pilaf is pretty good, though, has the fantastic Brutal Beatdown link and a +1200 atk with a 5 Ki meter passive.

Edit: I am up to my neck in SR AGIs, dang. I have Vegeta, Burter, Goku, and now Piccolo. There's also a SR* Videl in there.

Just stack up whatever you can that's strong against the type of medal you're getting, forget links and anything else. I.E. TEQ medals loving suck since nobody has any INT. One you start getting Z-Awakened characters of that type, they're good picks for the medal stages, too.

Also, just spend the stones on some pulls. That's all they're really good for, save a few for increases, but you need those Rs and SRs to get stuff done. Also there's no point in saving for a 50-pull, since there's no rare bonus or extra pull, so it's the same as 10 5-pulls.

If you want specific medals, they daily ones are really your best bet, same as any other gacha game. I'm pretty sure any other medals (or other capsule) for that matter are random among the rarity.

Seems like most things use the common medals and only differentiate when you get up to R.

I mean, I have no idea if they're going to do rate up events, but I look at it as "I can have fun now before I get bored" rather than "maybe I'll have a better shot of something cool later".

I think I'm obsessed with this game. I can't stop.

Also, I had 10 stones or so saved up from going back through Hard mode, plus the event stones that we got today, and I did 3 rolls. I consider myself very lucky to this point, but goddamn that was some garbage. Jeice, Chiaotzu, and the Pilaf Gang robot. What a loving waste.

I got both R Nale and R Piccolo from a friendship roll.. also useless with my team. At least they're decent training fodder.

Jeice and the Pilaf robot really need links to shine, I think. I use both on my team and Jeice is a real beatstick, that +1000 atk for going second is drat nice. Even better if you get a Burter to pair with him, then he's one of my heaviest hitters.

The Pilaf robot has Brutal Beatdown with Nappa and Recoome, who generally seem to be pretty strong no matter the incarnation. I mean, if I ever get a Ginyu or Guldo it's gone, but seems solid enough for now, especially after a Z-Awakening, considering how few INT guys there seem to be.

Edit: Aww yeah, got Cyborg Tao.

Also I'm still hoping on Bamco to localize one of their Gundam gatcha games.

I used to play SD Gundam G Gen Frontier or whatever and I'll just say this about it: It was one of the best gacha games until recently. They introduced a new rarity into the game and started balancing towards it, which basically made rolling for anything else completely pointless and in turn, if you failed to get the latest one every month your team was almost useless for the rest of the month.

There's a point where your cycle of gacha games never ends because by the time one energy bar is depleted, another has completely recharged. Even more so if it's a gacha game with decent playtime per energy, which I feel Dragonball does well with. I can only juggle approximately 3 games though and Dragonball's probably getting dropped when Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light comes out over here.

FFL is pretty good about it too. Is Super Light coming over for sure though? I played it in Japanese for a while but there was just way too much to keep up with and not enough of it was stuff I could translate and I deleted it out of frustration. Second I find out that's in English I'm grabbing it again.

Anyway I got Android 17 as my starter and I see there's a Freeza/Cooler machine and I kind of want to roll on it as soon as I get 50 crystals because I am a dork who likes the freezers.

I'm guessing the Cooler thing is in the Japanese version? U.S. Doesn't have any of that yet

Finally got my team entirely SRs(and a SSR leader) with full type coverage and good links. Doubled up on blue because Roshi has a kamehameha link with my SSR Goku and my Cell, and that's a real nice boost for all three of their supers, which come up frequently.

Can't decide between my SR orange options though. Got a Raditz who links with Goku and a Recoome who's much higher level. Going to try to use Raditz I guess?

I could really use another SSR though. Or any form of Vegeta. He's my favorite dude and I haven't gotten any of him.
