BEWARE: Rant alert.

I fucking hate Square Enix (sorry for using foul language) BUT I REALLY DO!! Far out man. Square Enix man....I just did 5 fucking pulls, THATS ALL MY DAMN JEWELS SAVED UP FROM SEVERAL MONTHS for Cloud Ex medal and I get a bunch of trashy or repeat Tier 2 and Tier 3 medals of those I've already guilted AND TO MAKE THINGS WORSE I DON'T EVEN GET A SINGLE KH2 Illustrated Kairi....Not even a consolation prize man......That's fucking cruel.

And then there are youtube videos of people doing 22 pulls!! Fucking 22 pulls and they don't get Ex Cloud.....damn I'd be pretty upset if I did 22 pulls and I got nothing. Just to put things into perspective, a 'pull' is equivalent to Jewels valued at about AUD$38. So 22 pulls would be AUD$840...thats almost AUD$1000...who on earth spends near 1K on an imaginary currency? WTF...I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy.

DAMN Square Enix to hell, I swear by the end of 2017 I will probably end up hating the Kingdom Hearts series more than being a fan for Square Enix's fucking money grabbing tactic. It doesn't help knowing that to actually 'perform decently' (not even 'perform well'...) in some limited quests, these 'high powered' medals are actually required. I.e. any other pulled medal will deal a damage value of '1' or something insignificant.

Heck how can I increase my Keyblade's strength if the only way to do that is to earn Adamantite/Gems....and the only way to earn Adamantite/Gems is to complete super challenging quests...BUT how does one get stronger if only the strong can actually earn the materials to increase their power while the weak can't even do the quests. What annoys me is the 'Defeat all enemies in 1 turn' rule. Fuck. The japanese version only says 'Defeat the Target enemy in 1 turn'. So why is Square Enix of America giving us so much shit.

The gap between the strongest player and a 'strong' player in the International version of KHUx is huge. Participating in Union X quests I see players who deal around 1 million damage or more to bosses and monsters...holy fuck I'd be ecstatic if I can even deal half that damage.

And btw, thanks for the fucking B'day gift Square Enix. Go to hell.
I'm done waiting for KHIII, 'Breath of the Wild' was made in a shorter time period and I'm just about certain KH3 will not score higher than Breath of The Wild on game ratings. BotW outperformed FFXV by a long shot because Nintendo actually looks out for the welfare of their players and their fans....unlike Square Fucking Enix.

As someone who has a degree in video game design, I hear ya' man… ∏_∏

The mobile market in North America has many problems, and while KHUχ avoids a good number of them, it still has many of the same shortfalls. I won't be an apologist for them, but the really sad truth of a system like the one KHUχ has is to not be hopeful that random chance will provide. And that mentality is terrible game design. If you want to just watch the cutscenes on Everglow's YouTube, more power to you! And you'll even be further along in the plot, since Japan is still a little ahead of NA. C :

Personally, I haven't even been able to max out an OrgXIII B medal since December—it's so heartbreaking to be one pip off getting the Special Attack bonus, and even that's happening less often. It's a system where the strong rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

…Plus, in a few years when the servers are down, no one will even be able to play the game ever again…… That just kills your game's longevity. ¬_¬

Yup, that's me! ^_^ (Been procrastinating cleaning up the last four chapters of KHII for over a year now… x_x)

I graduated this last December and am aiming for grad school this coming fall. It's actually been really cool that I've been making stuff in Unreal Engine 4—the same engine that KHIII is using.
…I should maybe put some of that stuff on dA…

Your 3D modelling and design skills are amazing! I saw your temple of time and my jaw dropped with sheer awe

Yeah, same here! (Has it really been years though, wow!)

I've been in the game design program at my university since fall 2012, so I'd barely gotten my feet wet when we started working on the manga together. But just so you know, by the time I joined the manga team, I was in the middle of a 21 credit hour semester—that's one class short of the maximum the University will let a student take x_x

^_^ I'm glad you like it! I haven't even got some of the cooler stuff on dA yet (though I do plan to eventually). Here's a link to my portfolio if you're interested. °u°

Oh just a question, I use the 3D modelling software called Blender. On your website i states you use UE4, is it possible to export models as OBJ format?
By the way, your 'twilight town' and 'system sectors' map look soooooo good <3

This is what I made, but its no where near as good as your stuff >w<

sorry but 5 pulls is nothing lol, this is a no-mercy medal and it's really not a surprise you didn't get it. you should only spend jewels on mercy medals if you know you can get them or on pre-orbed deals (i mean i know this deal is pre-orbed so that's not that bad). tbh u should have used those 5 pulls on guaranteed kairi if you don't have her yet. and how long have you been playing? the adamantine quests really aren't that hard, you just have to be patient, and always have attack up/defense down medals. SENA uses some terrible money grabbing tactics but like, this is one of the rarest medals in the game. premiums used to be no-dotted and guaranteed on 10th pull, so it did get better. 
i'm mostly pissed about the last quest for the Zexion medal since it's p much necessary to have premiums w defense -60% and extra attack traits which. lmao.

I am upset that I didn't get Ex Cloud, but I'm more upset at the fact that the 5 pulls did not yield any good medals. I'm quitting the game eitherway so theres no point talking about 'future pulls'

The story of KHUx, however, I will still continue to follow via Everglow's Youtube Channel.

lmao i remember when iKairi was first introduced, she was a 10-pull mercy, no dots, and i only had enough jewels for 8 pulls. it was stupid to pull, but i did anyway. didn't get her, only got one premium (iAnsem), got shitty medals otherwise. now it really is better. also, i just got my first iKairi (the regular one, i have iKairi2 guilted) in this Cloud EX banner lol

Glad you managed to get the medals you wanted. I'm sure if perservere long enough and not ragequit like me you'll eventually get Ex Cloud or any of the super rare medals that you're wanting to get.

:iconredrevolutionnaire:
redRevolutionnaire Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2017
yeah i had been saving up for her for a while, i was ready to do 10 pulls if necessary. fortunately she was a 5-pull pre-orbed mercy, then i got two more of her (orbed) from the falling price deal for KA7. I'm glad, but i'm still angry that Namine wasn't a mercy pull. I still don't have her, and she's not only super useful, but also my fave character. 
ultimately, EX medals are great but i don't think they're that necessary; so far the Kairis have been pretty game-changing. Saving for 0.2 Kairi and hoping for a mercy now

I feel you, i had those times too. I suggest you saved jewels for guaranteed special atk bonuses 1-3 dots medal (like the EX Cloud banner), or a mercy pull banner. well at least tier4 and tier5 medals with special atk bonuses is better, right? Even there are NA players still saving their jewels waiting for Kairi 0.2 to come out (even though there's no further information when her banner will come out) lol

What i hate about SE the most is .. the Organization XIII quest comes out and the recent Zexion B quest is a serious joke (13th quest). Even the JP player had a hard time with it.

Yeah, i know. I always prepared my heart to not get upset with it, because y'know SE NA is getting greedy day by day lmao.

All we got these months are VIP quests and no events that get farmable medals.

I actually after the guilt for tier4/5 medals. Since the cloud ex banner guaranteed the special bonuses , so it's win-win for me. i didn't get cloud ex in 3 pull tho, but i did got some tier 5 medals with special bonuses.

Also that zexion b quest..
The medals itself doesn't worth the effort to get. Compared to xigbar b and marluxia b, they still got a lot more useful . And their quests is far more easier. I manage to get through hard quests because of them lol.

And lastly, the recent UNION CROSS quest is absolutely upsetting. Lv 350 bosses is too much, we will get killed in every turn unless defense boost 3 / second chance is occured

Looks like i turn out ranting here too lmao

Reality of gacha games, just don't do it.
Get your refund and move along (if you spent)
or move to JP with me. :) I've more or less quit NA, but I'm still playing JP regardless of my pulls (which are still pbad)
also just for the record, sephiroth EX had no mercy, so ripppRIPP its SEPHIROS

Just to add, these games are no different than P2W for anything, freemium just has this kind of business structure. Don't take it to heart. It's a different kind of business structure than their console games, and it doesn't represent the company or title as a whole.
That being said, KH3 look hella jank. Unreal models just dont look pretty bwahahah.

Yes, refunds were a big thing back when the game first came out, ESPECIALLY Sephiroth's first appearance. As long as you had "valid" reasoning, Google or Apple Store would refund your money. I actually did this recently back when I (for personal dumb reasons don't ask) tried for the illustrated roxas, which had no mercy. I didn't get the roxas but I did get a full refund. Some people used to try until they got the medal then ask for a refund as well to exploit.

I can understand you tho, I was a F2P as well and it was hard being on the "freeplayer's" end of things. But heck that's a free game lol.

I don't spend any money. I was putting it into perspective that some people buy jewels to spend on it and the fact jewels worth 22 pulls was about $800AUD...which is about $550USD

Its upsetting because it takes me months to save up enough Jewels to make pulls. Its even more upsetting that once those Jewels are used up, there is literally no way to farm them except for being rewards from certain quests, the daily log-in bonuses...or to purchase jewel packs (which I never do because they are ridiculously overpriced).

If you want to see the likelihood of certain pulls from various past banners, there are people on the kingdom hearts subreddit (r/kingdomhearts) that have gathered that data. It's pretty scary how rare some metals can be. I pulled twice already on the Cloud EX banner and the only helpful medals I got were another Key Art #3 and Namine HD. Out of 20 medals, I only really got two useful ones (and Key Art #3 is only useful because I'm working on guilting the #3 I already have).

Pulls can be pretty awful, I feel you there.

I got frustrated enough to take about a two month break from the game. I recently came back to it though, and I'm having fun again. You just have to distance yourself from the frustration and realize that you can still make some headway with whatever setup you have.

How far along are you in KHUX at this point?
