Counter Side Global Roadmap

Find information about upcoming banners and events for the Global server here.

Foreword

I won't be posting reviews for the upcoming characters here and you just need to hover over them to see their ratings - or click on them if you want to check the reviews. Instead, when a new month arrives I will create blog posts that contain the usual should you pull advice for all the characters to be released then and what we think about them.

The official roadmap for the Global server is available here.

September
Roadmap
Events
  • King's Memories [At the End of the Abyss]
  • Unbreakable Flowers [Flora Maid Service]
  • Coffin Company Dinner Party:
    • login calendar with tons of rewards
    • a set of missions with great rewards
    • since this event is 1st anniversary in disguise, there's a chance we will get other things that are not visible on the roadmap, but came with 1st anniversary in other regions:
      • free pulls banner (160 free pulls)
      • anniversary skins
      • a free ASSR selector ticket - you can pick either Awakened Hilde or Awakened Yoo Mina
        • there also was a paid selector ticket that had A. Hilde, A. Yoo Mina and A. Lee Sooyeon (99$ price tag)
    • it will start this week on the 22nd September!
New Awakened characters

Awakened Seo Yoon is already released and we knew Replacer Queen will come soon after the Replacer King battle pass was released a few days ago.

New characters

The Replacer gang is already here, but Maids will come soon after them! Veronica is the most important character out of the group as she will be great in PVP on release in Global and also a must-have in Dive 50 if you want to cheese the boss there.

New Battle Pass

The Replacer King Battle Pass is already here and if you only would buy one BP, it's definitely this one.

New skins

If the anniversary skins will indeed come with the event, here is what we will get:

Gent Onyx

October
Roadmap
Events
  • Bottom of the Shade [Horizon Finance]
  • Halloween event
  • Lone Lee Circuit Link
New Awakened characters

Ministra, the dark queen of Counter Side, will join Global server in October! Her debuffs are monstrous and she's one of the best characters for harder PVE stages, but even in PVP she is no slouch.

New characters

Rita and Dash are introduced in the Bottom of the Shade (Horizon Finance #1) event and while Lucid appears in the continuation of this event, we are pretty sure she will be released this month as November is packed.

New Battle Pass

Spira is one of the strongest Strikers in PVP even today, so if you love to PVP, grab her for sure!

Other updates
  • Shadow Palaces #5 Update,
  • Relic Challenge Stage 2 Update.
November
Roadmap
Events
  • Academy Field Day [A Wish that You Don't Know]
  • For the Uncrying [Horizon Finance]
  • Coffin Company Thanksgiving Event:
    • login calendar with tons of rewards,
    • a set of missions with great rewards,
    • since the event is KR 1.5 anniversary event in disguise here is the stuff that we can expect to come with it:
      • free pulls banner (150 free pulls)
      • a free SSR character selector ticket
      • 2x paid ASSR character ticket selectors:
        • first ticket has A. Hilde, A. Yoo Mina and A. Yuna and it costs ~80$
        • if you buy the first ticket, you will unlock a special 7k AC offer. The offer gives you a choice between two tickets: first has A. Lee Sooyeon/A. Seo Yoon and the second ticket has Replacer King/Replacer Queen. You have to pick one of the tickets and you will get one of the characters on it by random (50/50 chance).
  • Good Luck Circuit Link
  • Black Friday Payback Event
New Awakened characters

Evolved One is available for free when you clear Dive 50 - but it takes around 100 days to farm enough of her shards. Still, her banner will be released at the same time too so those who have tons of Black Tickets saved and are impatient, can pull her instantly.

Awakened Horizon is a monster in PVP that will join Replacer King as the Queen of the Gauntlet.

New characters

Based on the confirmed events, we can assume that below characters will be released in November:

  • Sky Layfield, Kaci Bins and Arti Lana are part of the Academy Field Day event,
  • Overflow, Machine Collector and Glitch are released together with the Dive 45-50 expansion,
  • Shena appears in the For the Uncrying event for the first time.
New operator
New Battle Pass

If we are getting Awakened Horizon, then first we need to get her base version and she will be part of the November's Battle Pass!

Roadmap
Roadmap
Events
  • Episode 7 story update
  • Exclusive Global collab!
    • details will be revealed in November, but it's confirmed the collab won't be the same one as the ones available in other regions (so no Guilty Gear or Code Geass),
  • Year-end Party [Killer of the Holy Night]
  • The Militia [The Weak and the Strong]
  • Vice President's Holidays [Vacation Event]
  • Christmas Event
  • Coffin Company Holiday Getaway Event:
    • login calendar with tons of rewards,
    • a set of missions with great rewards,
    • since the event is KR 2nd anniversary event in disguise here is the stuff that we can expect to come with it:
      • free pulls banner (100 free pulls),
      • a free ASSR selector ticket - you can pick either Awakened Yuna, Awakened Na Yubin or Amy Firstwing (but Amy might be replaced because she is released in the same month),
        • there also was a paid selector ticket that has every Awakened character released till then (99$ price tag),
      • a free SSR ship selector ticket,
      • a free SSR character selector ticket,
      • a free SSR operator selector ticket.
New Awakened characters

Awakened Joo Shiyoon PV broke the records when it was released in KR and till today, no other awakened character came even close to it. In game, he is also a PVE beast that can cheese a lot of content.

Amy Firstwing broke the PVP meta on her release and things got so bad, she had to be nerfed. Still, even after that she is really strong in the Gauntlet.

New characters

Since the Militia event is released in December we can safely assume that the other 2 members of the faction will be released too.

As for Lucrecia and Dracasia, they arrived to SEA and KR servers together with Episode 7, so we can assume that they will come to Global too at the same time.

New operator

Serina changed the Gauntlet and till this day, she's the strongest PVP Operator in the game.

New Battle Pass

The Militia support/sniper will be the Battle Pass character in December!

New system - Rearm

Rearm is a system that brings a second life to characters that are old and barely used and by sacrificing other characters and materials, you can make them stronger.
