In the past, I defined the Muv-Luv-inspired mobile and browser game Muv-Luv Alternative: Strike Frontier one of the most generous on the market.
While I’m well aware that generosity is a pretty foreign concept to mobile gacha games, it’s beyond doubt that Strike Frontier (Strangely in open contrast with the draconian percentages in Dead or Alive Xtreme: Venus Vacation, which is also published by DMM) gives you a lot of bang for your buck, or even for no buck.
Players receive one or more SSR unit every week thanks to special events, on top of a lot of free gacha tickets including one or more guaranteeing a further SSR result.
This week is no exception and actually goes above and beyond the usual with two events instead of one.
The first event is a rerun of a past one titled “Operation Lucifer 2018 (Part 1) Her Thoughts.” Focused on the titular Operation Lucifer. This is particularly interesting as it happens before Muv-Luv Unlimited and Alternative, giving a look at a prologue story and at the popular cast of Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien when they were cadets themselves.
Just by playing the event’s missions enough to get a drop or to accrue the necessary score, you’ll be able to grab a rather powerful SSR Mitsuki Hayase, and an SR Command Post Manami Homura. The gacha includes Akane Suzumiya and Haruka Suzumiya (who happens to be the best healer in the game) and a rather beastly TF-4J Gekishin.
The second event is Yukemuri Paradise, and it’s hot springs themed. Just by playing the event you can get two SSR TSF, a MiG-23 Cheburashka and a MiG-27 Alligator. If you want to partake in the gacha you have a chance to get Mikoto Yoroi, Gretel Jeckeln, or Caroline Shields in rather alluring onsen attire.
You can check them all out below. This means that fans can get three SSR and one SR units without spending a dime, plus two SSR and fifteen SR tickets (which also have a good chance to return an SSR) up for grabs. While I’m well aware that this is all a strategy to attract more potential paying players, I’m definitely ok with this. If all gacha games were like this, the genre would definitely be less frustrating.
