Counter Side Reroll Guide

Rerolling is great for those players who want to start the game strong and aren't afraid to waste hours to get a perfect combination of employees.

Is it even worth rerolling?

Considering that Counter Side has a special banner that you can reroll 30 times on that also has some of the best SSR in the game, then the answer is not really.

How to reroll?

After the recent rework to early game, rerolling became much easier compared to the time SEA has launched. For example most of the ship battles have been removed and replaced by simply stage battles. Here are the steps you need to take:

1. Create a Guest account

Make sure to login using Guest Account - this will allow you to easily reset your progress if you're not satisfied with what you've got.

2. Play through the tutorial

Play through the tutorial till you reach the lobby. This should take you around 5-7 minutes if you click through all the dialogue.

3. New CEO Banner

New CEO banner

The game will force you to do a 10-pull on the New Ceo banner. This banner is a recent addition to the game and it guarantees an SSR Rarity employee in 30 pulls or less. The cost to pull on that banner is also cheaper as each pull costs only 100 Quartz, instead of the normal 150 Quartz.

You can get the following Employees here:

CharacterNamePVE ScorePVP ScoreWorth getting?
Kyle WongASSMaybe. Kyle Wong is one of the best early-game SSR Rangers that makes a massive difference with his walls - the crowd control they provide is hard to match. Still, the longer you play, the less useful he becomes, because other characters bring more things to the battle.
Elizabeth PendragonCANo. In the current SEA meta she's not used at all. On a new server, while she will shine in PVP for the first month or two and without her a PVP player will suffer, after that Kang and Awakened Yoo Mina will replace her.
GaeunSSSSSYes. Gaeun is awakened employee in disguise. In PVP she will be always be a nightmare and on a fresh server only Gaeun can beat another Gaeun. If you want to PVP, you need to get her.
Seo YoonSCNo. While she's one of the best buffers in PVE, you don't really need her when starting the game.
Esterosa de ChevalierASSYes, but not from this banner. After the buff and her cost being lowered to 4 stars, she's a great off-tank that also can deal silly amounts of damage. It will be hard to stop her in the first month or so, but then she will fall off. Still, her Rearm is overpowered, so investing into her won't be a waste.
Nanahara ChifuyuSSSSSSYes. Chifuyu is one of the best SSR in the game even now in KR and SEA. She's a monster in PVE and PVP on a fresh server.

Still, considering the banner is random, and any Quartz you will get from pre-register/other rewards should be used on a normal banner, anything you get from the CEO Banner could be considered a bonus.

4. Selective Recruitment Banner

Selective banner

Now the game will force you do a pull on Selective Recruitment Banner.

Each time you do a 10-pull, you will always receive 1 SSR character, 3 SR characters, and 3 Rare characters and 3 Normal Rarity characters. Here's a list of the SSR employees you can get from the Selective Banner:

Elizabeth PendragonCANo. In the current SEA meta she's not used at all. On a new server, while she will shine in PVP for the first month or two and without her a PVP player will suffer, after that Kang and Awakened Yoo Mina will replace her.
GaeunSSSSSYes. Gaeun is awakened employee in disguise. In PVP she will be always be a nightmare and on a fresh server only Gaeun can beat another Gaeun. If you want to PVP, you need to get her.
Esterosa de ChevalierASSYes. After the buff and her cost being lowered to 4 stars, she's a great off-tank that also can deal silly amounts of damage. It will be hard to stop her in the first month or so, but then she will fall off. Still, her Rearm is overpowered, so investing into her won't be a waste.
Nanahara ChifuyuSSSSSSYes. Chifuyu is one of the best SSR in the game even now in KR and SEA. She's a monster in PVE and PVP on a fresh server.
Nanahara ChinatsuSANo. While she's a great healer, getting Chifuyu or Gaeun from the selective will help your account much better. You can use Evelyn, Aurius or Claudia as your early game lower rarity healers and you will do fine.

Great SR rarity employees to get as a bonus in the selective banner:

CharacterNamePVE ScorePVP ScoreWorth getting?
Evelyn KellerSSSSSSEven till today, she's the best PVP healer in the game and also one of the best in PVE.
Administration RiflemanSSSSSDespite being SR rarity, they're one of the strongest DPS in the game that can melt Awakened Defenders in PVP, but they require a bit of gear to work.
Lin XienSSALin is required for a lot of PVE content due to being a battery which means she can restore Deployment Resources that are used to deploy characters in battle.

Do a 10-pull, but don't accept the results (even if it's someone you want). Press the Back button in top left corner instead. We will come back to this banner later.

5. Check your mail

Without leaving the recruitment screen, press the Mail icon in the top right part of the screen. Get all rewards from there.

If you're starting now on SEA server, there won't be much there sadly - just your first day login rewards.

List of confirmed rewards on Global (that affect the reroll):

  • 500 Quartz,
  • 2x Blue Ticket
  • 1x 10 Pull that guarantees 1 random SSR.

Furthermore, Global will receive a coupon code that gives 1500 Quartz! Here's the code: CSTRAILER. You won't be able to redeem it now, and will have to clear a bit of story first to get off the rails, but once you do, just go to settings and you will find option to redeem it there.

If you reroll at a later time, check the homepage for the list of active coupons!

6. Continue the tutorial

Don't do anything with all the quartz you've received yet and instead press the lobby button to follow the tutorial till you reach this screen:

End of reroll

From now on, you will be able to browse the game as you want it, so press the lobby button instead of going in the battle.

6. Use the goodies

Now that you've received the pre-register rewards, it's time to put them to good use.

If you've quit the initial 10-pull, you should be sitting on exactly or a bit over 3000 Quartz. This means you can go to Shop, then Permanent Packs and then Classified Recruitment Package. There you will buy the 11-pull pack for 2750 Quartz.

This will allow you to do 12 pulls (11 from the pack and 1 free pull if Global will follow SEA) on the current Awakened banner - but only do that if the character is good.

Assess the pulls

Check the tier list to assess the SSR you've pulled and see if the account is worth keeping.

Reset account

Didn't get what you wanted? Time to try again!

In the KR version of the game, you can go to setting and reset your account. This will take you back to the login screen.

In SEA you have to close the game and manually delete the application data (clear cache), but this will also force you to redownload the 3gb. I suggest to use emulators like Bluestack to speed up the process, since you can roll on more than one client at the same time (if your PC can handle it that is).

The account reset option was available in the Closed Beta for Global, so the chances of it being there for the release are pretty high. To use the reset account option, navigate to the screen below and press the Delete Account button. This will take you back to the login screen.

TL;DR version

Here's how a perfect reroll on a fresh server would look like:

  1. Start the game and do what tutorial wants till you reach the New CEO banner. Force close the game then to keep the 1k Quartz,
  2. Gather all the goodies and use the code before heading to the shop and buying Classified Recruitment Pack for 2750 Quartz,
  3. Use all the Black Tickets on the current awakened banner - if it's someone who is good or someone you want
  4. Use your free 10-pull from the pre-reg rewards to get a random SSR - we don't know how long those rewards will last, so they might not be there when you start,
  5. Do you free 10-pull on the banner that comes with 160 free pull event (this pulls stack, so if you will reroll on 2n day, you will get 20 pulls here and so on),
  6. Go to the catalogue and missions and get all the rewards you could get and hopefully you will get 1k to roll on the New CEO banner you've skipped previously,
  7. Once you do all your pulls and you're happy with them go back to the Selective Banner. If you didn't get Nanahara Chifuyu, get her from the Selective Banner (while both her and Gaeun are a good choice there, Gaeun is available in some ticket selectors, while this is your only chance to guarantee yourself Chifuyu). If you got Chifuyu already, get Gaeun from the Selective instead.
