Crazy Amy is here! Here's her review:
Amy the Bringer of Whale Tears - that should have been her name. Her confusion ability broke the PVP balance and pushed the KR community to review bomb the game. Still, Nexon quickly responded and she received a rework - while the confusion mechanic was removed, she gained instant death instead which is another broken mechanic, but for sure a lesser evil compared to confusion.
Since her power lies in her on-deploy ability, if you use her on auto-battle mode, she will be just another damage dealer. And for 6 cost there are way better employees you can use instead. She's also not that used in the endgame. Her damage is still good though and if you're forced to manual some stages, she will be a good addition to the team, but only that.
After her rework, her rating fell quite a lot, but now after Awakened Mina was buffed and gained Perfect Evasion, she's back in the meta. The Surefire effect on her special allows maker her a perfect counter to Perfect Evasion and because the developers seem to be slapping the buff on a lot of new units, she might become a must pick soon.
Still, keep it in mind that against other enemies, her strength lies in her on-deploy ability, but if you miss it or time her deploy wrong, you've basically wasted 6 cost for nothing.
Should you pull on her? If you love PVP, you have to. For PVE players, she's a skip.
Friendly PVP is finally here! Now you can challenge your friends and test your employees in PVP environment.
Well, Replacer King and others now should be afraid, because every week you can pick three employees you would like to see banned and this will affect the weekly ban list!
Time Attack Mode
This new mode is a pretty challenging one, but the rewards here are purely cosmetic since you get new furniture and badges for your dorm only.
Old Admin Challenge
You can get Alex, Lyudmila, Young Na Yubin, and Young LSY EE from this challenge. All of them, besides Alex, are Weapons.
Alex's one has ASPD as fixed top stat, Lyudmila has Skill Haste there. LSY EE is the weakest one, because it gives Ranged Damage Reduction, but Na Yubins gear increases his Special Skill Damage, which makes him an even better damage dealer.
Fusion Core Festival
If we're getting the same Festival as TW and KR, then this calendar should give a whooping 75 Fusion Cores, so make sure you log in daily to get all the rewards!
Well, there's a ton of them, but basically, it's what the KR region received for the second anniversary and what was described in this blog post.
Skip Battle is especially worth noting because now you will be able to instantly finish the battles and it won't cost info anymore. This should drastically improve the time you have to spend on doing dailies or farming overall.
