You frown. "But why?""You've seen for yourself what the club is like." Karen narrows her eyes. "They rejected you solely on the grounds that they believed your Gunpla didn't make the grade."Yeah, you got kinda pissed at how they just wrote off your GM Juggler like that.(cont)
>>31570087"It wasn't always like this." Karen sighs. "My father is a alumni of this school, and from what he's told me, the Gunpla Club used to be very different from what it is today. It encouraged creativity and fun, but now Gunpla in this school has changed. It's no longer about building what you want, or battling for the fun of it. Now the Gunpla scene here is ruled by optimized Gunpla, with optimized builds, using optimized equipment. Everybody uses the same cookie cutter builds. Gunpla battles have become... routine, and that's just terrible."Wow... Karen was really, really passionate about this."There's some sort of personal stake to this, isn't there?" You ask."Well, of course." Karen nods. "I want to turn this school back into the one my father loved. If he were to see it now, he'd probably get a heart attack.""Well, I'm in." Mac steps forward."I'm sympathetic to your cause as well." Lucina nods."Well, if you got two of my friends convinced, I guess I'm in, too." You grin."Thank you." Karen smiles and bows her head. "Perhaps we should show each other our Gunpla? Or perhaps we should try to recruit more members?">Show me your Gunpla!>Yeah, let's find some more members.>Other
>>31570093>>Show me your Gunpla!
>>31570093>>Show me your Gunpla!>>AND. LETS BATTLERUShow me your Gunpla TAMASHIIII
>>31570093>Show me your Gunpla!also HERO OF ALL GM'S!
>>31570093>>Show me your Gunpla!Oooh, sounds naughty~
Still can't get over the suggestion of Mac's Patriotic paintjob (Red, White, Blue, and Star Spangled). What next, him getting a weapons system known as "The Second Amendment"?
>Show me your Gunpla!
>>31570093>>Show me your Gunpla!We need to see how well everyone fits together, maybe it'll spark ideas.
>>31570181The two boxing Fists.Ones Freedom, the other's named Justice.
>>31570181I think its more captain america
>>31570210The punchline is Mac's Canadian.
>>31570229Wheres the lumberjack Axe?
>>31570093>>Show me your Gunpla!Show me your balls!
Also guys, we need to pick up some RX-78-1 Conversion Kits, and some Weapons/Add-On parts. I want Super Napalm.
>>31570266"Show me my gunpla and I'll show you my balls."
I've been thinking about our whole "Grunt suits, hell yeah!" attitude last thread. What if we become just as bad as those optimized guys...
>>31570093>Show me your Gunpla!>otherTime to talk group names and rules and the like. And who's the leader.
>>31570273yes its SUPER DUPER NAPALM!
>>31570093>Show me your Gunpla!Just finished my model tonight! Still needs a shit ton of paint. Also not a gundam.
>>31570281We're running Balls.Theres no way this is optimised.
>>31570292Whoops. Typical baddie over here forgetting his image.
>>31570281Our friends use an Exia and a SUPER Maxter, and our little sister likes Balls. We are probably one of the most open-minded Gunpla battlers in the city.
>>31570281I love grunts and all but a gundam or two later on will not hurt us. hell we can make Noble look like THIS
>>31570093>Show me your Gunpla!
>>31570306So what's with /tg/ and hardcore modes? Not that I have anything against it (Hell, I voted for it.), but is it to prove a point to the opposition, or to get a sense of accomplishment?
>>31570327Really? That's your idea of a "good looking," gundam?I weep for your taste.
>>31570306Loved those toys..
>>31570361I...don't think I understand your question mate.Did you mean to link to my Command Wolf?
>>31570361It's not all about the end result.It's about the Journey.
>>31570093>>Show me your Gunpla!>>Yeah, let's find some more members.I think we should consider finding others at leastAlso we should think of an upgrade for the GM juggler or such as these series do have original upgrades.
Quest needs more dakka
>>31570389Woops, wrong link...
>>31570405Nono... still not enough.Ah, this is better.
>>31570327Zog me, boss, dat's a lot o' choppy...
>>31570430it's RED choppy!
>>31570281It's alright as long as we stay creative in our building. After all, the motto of the Gunpla Shingyo School is along the lines of "do whatever you like".>>31570153>>31570395I'm partial to the Bar-GM myself.
>>31570422IMO, a Guntank-esque platform would be a bit more...practical in weight distribution.
>>31570430Not choppy enough.
>>31570405No, the quest needs more DOM.I don't know this setting and if team battles is a thing. But if 3v3s happen we need to get three of these.
>>31570491how about....a GM/DOM hybrid?
Any ideas as to improve our current GUNPLA? (ex. improve our Balls, the main suit?)
>>31570516I don't know.DOM is too much love for me to mess with.
>>31570543there is only so much you can do with a ball I am sorry to say.
>>31570543MORE BALLS.And a GM Command Shield + Striker Lance.
>>31570479I fucking love Ork players.>>31570093>We whip out our Juggler>her face when she realizes she's made a huge mistake
>>31570470I for one want to redeem G-Saviour.>>31570516Hmm... GM-DOM... Jimdom... rolls off the tongue rather smoothly, don't you think?
>>31570093"Show me your Gunpla, and I'll show you mine." You say.It's a really good thing you caught yourself at the end and resisting making a crass ball joke. You didn't think Karen would have taken it well. "I suppose I should show it to you all. We will be battling as a team." Karen nods and reaches into her bag, bringing out a small, black Gunpla.NEW GUNPLA ENCOUNTERED: OBSIDIAN OVERFLAGYou can immediately tell from its head shape and thin, wiry build that it was an Overflag suit from Gundam 00. However, it seemed to be heavily modified. Instead of standard arms, both of the Obsidian Overflag's arms ended in two long blades. As for the model itself, like it's namesake, the Overflag gleamed in the light despite being completely black, as if it really were made of obsidian."It's beautiful." Lucina remarks."Eh, looks kinda fragile." Mac says."That's some really nice work there." You nod. "I imagine it's a close combat speedster type?""Correct." Karen nods. "A bit similar to my father's Gunpla. Like the original Overflag, it sacrifices armor for speed. I've changed the arms to incorporate a pair of high frequency swords for deadly precision strikes."With that, you show Karen your GM Juggler. It was essentially the same as the original GM, except it had a few extra armor backs from the GM Striker kit added on, as well as the rear rack assembly that carried its two Ball companions."Interesting. I suppose it's main strength is bringing numbers to a fight." Karen says, looking at the Juggler."That's right." You nod. "The Balls are a lot hardier and can pack more punch than a standard bit or funnel. Even the best Gundam is gonna sweat if it gets hit from three directions simultaneously."(cont)
>>31570560then lets just get a GM Striker >>31570569Sweet mother I love the flag!
>>31570569Lucina then shows off her Exia Cuirassier. It actually wasn't all that different from the original Exia, save for some extra armor on the torso and extra boosters mounted on the back to account for the extra weight.Mac also shows off his Super Maxter. It was basically the Maxter with all the AMERICA FUCK YEAH aspects pushed even further. In addition to the patriotic red white and blue paint job, it was armed with a pair of faithfully recreated Colt Single Action Army revolvers and large, circular shield. He even replaced the gloves with knuckedusters with the words FREEDOM and JUSTICE engraved in them."It's an interesting lineup." Karen smiles and then blinks. "Ah, I nearly forgot! Our team needs a name!">Well, you're the founder. You should come up with one.>How about... (write in)
>>31570589>>Well, you're the founder. You should come up with one.>He even replaced the gloves with knuckedusters with the words FREEDOM and JUSTICE engraved in them.FUCK YEA.
>Well, you're the founder. You should come up with one.
>>31570559yeah to actually expand the concept we'd need to abandon the ball and look into other things (Gunbarrels, Flag of Titans MS, etc), especially considering the GM Juggler was the federation's first attempt at such weapons.>>31570589>>Well, you're the founder. You should come up with one.
>>31570543From the top of my head.>INCOM Balls.>Hardpoints on the suit from the Victory Gundam.>Hardpoints on the Balls themselves.>Head and chest vulcans from the Double X Gundam.>Servo-arms to hold and reload weapons and the shield from The O.>Trick grenade launchers.>Flash system from the AGE-2 Dark Hound.
>>31570611Funnels would be a fun weapon!
>>31570589Mac confirmed for best character.It's over; go home.You can't even imagine my smile. So godamn patriotic.>>31570589Custom Kids
>>31570559Theres alot we can do with Balls.Unlike bits which are static, the balls can be mission changeable. Different loadouts for different operations.Close combat balls, long ranged sniping balls, MS Balls.They're also large enough to mount I Fields or Beam Shields, which only the Fin Funnels can do and only in groups.
>>31570589>Colt Single Action Army revolversMerc, you beautiful SOB.>How about... (write in)Solo Wing
>>31570543Ball INCOMs, perhaps?>>31570589Considering the purpose of the club's formation, I say we name it after a grunt pilot who did exceptionally well against Gundams or similarly powerful MSes. How does The Four Wise Men sound?
>>31570651you god damn right!
>>31570589Mac is so fucking awesome.>Colt Singe Action Army revolversManly tears already. it's beautiful.>How about...We each field so names and take a vote on what we like?
how about The Patriots!
>>31570589FoxhoundGunpla R&DC&C Music Factory
>>31570589>How about... (write in)RazgrizFor we will come in and bring destruction to this corrupt group and we will revive it to its former glory afterwards
I like to imagine every time Mac breaks out his Maxter everyone in the group shares a thunderous hi-five.
>>31570589Gunpla Sans FrontieresIt's a group of gunpla without restrictions or affiliations, the only purpose is to bring the love of gunpla to whose who seek it.
>>31570543Beam rotors on the balls.Offense, defense, maneuverability, and CQC.
>>31570712I like it! I like it!
>>31570707Not to mention the national anthem playing from an unknown source.There's a music player inside the suit that can turn on and off.
>>31570589Outer Haven.Gunpla... gunpla has changed... gone are the days of customs, of lovingly rendered work... it is all min max kits with min maxed teams using min maxed strategies. gunpla has changed...
>>31570628I was thinking incom type stuff, that and the flag of titans mechs are descended from a GM model (and Gunbarrels used on Strike Daggers, SEED's GM)http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/RX-124_Gundam_TR-6_%28Hyzenthlay_II-Rah%29like this one (it has two incomish weapons)
>>31570589> Well, you're the founder. You should come up with one.>>31570714I regret we didn't go with Late UC. Cosmo Babylonia suits would be sweet as fuck.
>>31570748Too space nazi to work with space america
>>31570744you mean Outer Heaven?I can dig it>>31570712>Gunpla Sans Frontieresthat's the motto
>>31570724We should really find out if Jack's dad is named Larry.
>>31570589Okay, so consensus seems to be kinda split, so we're going to revote on the most popular choices.>Leave it to Karen to decide.>Gunpla Sans Frontieres
>>31570744And the name of the tournament...Is EVO 2024Daigo vs YumeGET READY
>>31570816>Leave it to Karen to decide.
>>31570747I love the wizard system that the dagger/windams have. its fucking smart idea
>>31570816>Gunpla Sans Frontieres
>>31570816>>Leave it to Karen to decide.>Gunpla Sans Frontieres be the motto
>>31570819>PARRY HIM WITH YOUR BALLS!
>>31570714Aye, still have that suggestion saved from last thread.>I want you to picture a Ball flying encircled around the middle by a whirling rotor/shield/beam-saber-saw. Dancing and slicing on the battlefield like a homicidal hummingbird with guns mounted top and bottom.
>>31570816>>Gunpla Sans Frontieres
>>31570816>>Leave it to Karen to decide.
>>31570816Damn I liked Outer Heaven...>Leave it to Karen to decideGunpla Sans Frontieres sounds more like a slogan or charity.
gunpla sans frontieres
>>31570816I'd say take an in-character vote, suggest Gunpla Sans Frontiers as our suggest, hear what suggested she and the others have.
>>31570816>Leave it to Karen to decide.GSF just sounds retarded.
>>31570816 >>Leave it to Karen to decide.
>>31570816>>Leave it to Karen to decide.she's the leader.>>31570829one of my ideas for an upgrade was to make it something of a Strike GM in how it can adjust its loadout.
>>31570862>secondary using with heavy shield>Tertiary; automated heavy sniper
>>31570543At first I thought of replacing the Ball cannons with the beam cannons on the CGUE DEEP Arms. Then I realized this meant we'd have to call our gunpla the GM Balls-DEEP.
>>31570937We are now in touch with our inner immature teenage selves. Keep going.

All of this gundam talk is making me lusty...but my Command Wolf isn't even finished!
>>31570816"How about you decide?" You ask Karen. "You're the leader, after all.""I suppose." Karen smiles lightly. "How about Wizard Team?""Wizard?" You blink."It was actually my father's group was caled, the Wizards, back when he battled professionally." Karen's cheeks redden slightly. "Is it too silly?""No, not at all!" You, Mac, and Lucina try to assure her."Well? How about it? Wizard Team?" She asks.>Wizard Team>Maybe something else...
>>31571015Pirates are a huge part of American history and folklore. So absolutely.I almost want to go buy a model from the local hobby shop, but I lack the time, skill, and resources to give it the lov it deserves,
>>31571041>Maybe something else...Unless we're going full retard, let's try door #2
>>31571041>>Wizard TeamI have no problems with it.
>>31571041>>Wizard TeamAdd the Motto.Gunpla Sans Frontieres
>>31571041nope. I appreciate her sentimentality, but this isn't about battling professionally. Its to remove the tyranny of the gunpla club and make it something for everyone once more.Gundam Sans Frontieres.
>>31571041Man this girl has daddy issues.
>>31571041>Maybe something else...maybe hear some picks from the rest of the team
>>31570977>Top Gun theme>for anything that's not the AirmasterNigga what are you doing.
>>31571041>>Wizard TeamSounds good
>>31571041Sounds like this has a lot of means for you, tell us more about his team, wouldn't want to take on the name if we might be a poor fit for the legacy.
>>31571041>Maybe something else...Sleeping King
>>31571097works for me.
gunpla sans frontieresi like it
Gunpla Liberation Front
>>31571120so we steal them?
>>31571132Well, we're certainly not here to fuck them.
>>31571073A fair point, if a bit harsh. Maybe we can have a club name and use Wizards as the team name for pro games?
>>31571049Motherfucking Crossbone it is.
>>31571097I can dig it.
>>31571041>Maybe something else...Referencing an old team is cool, but we shouldn't copy it exactly. Maybe "Theurge" or "Magician" or something like that. Something that those who know the reference will catch but people not in on it can still get an appreciation for.
>>31571073I htink you're reading the wrong thing from it, that or looking for an excuse to use some lame ass name for it.If her father's team wasn't one that she really respected, she wouldn't suggest it. That and there's hints that her father's ways weren't much different from ours
Maybe we can deviate from it like "Sorceror" or something.
>>31571225Thats pretty good, actually.
>>31571216love how you're also shitting on the real group Médecins Sans Frontières or 'Doctors without Borders'
>>31570816Gunpla Sans Frontinres
Okay, so, we seem to be failing to pick up any sort of consensus here. I'll leave another 15 minutes for discussion over names. If we can't come to any sort of overall consensus, I'm just gonna exercise some QM fiat and pick a name I like from this thread.
Gunpla Research and Development Society
>>31571283Because folks are thinking of Docs without Borders in referencing the name.And not Militares Sans Frontieres.
>>31571283I believe they're actually making a reference to Metal Gear Solid, where the mercenary group Big Boss founds is Militaires San Frontieres, "Soldiers WIthout Borders", to acknowledge their lack of affiliation to any country. Though that's a play on Medecins Sans Frontieres, so your point stands.
Here's food for thought, what do we want our name to invoke in people?
Free Gunpla League New Alliance of Free Gunpla
>>31571376Childish dick jokes.
>>31571332I would throw my support in on offering something like >>31571210 >>31571225 other wises just go with QM fiat sooner than later.
>>31571376growthdevelopmentchangehow about Evolution?
>>31571332I'm all for Gunpla Sans Frontieres.Wizard team is just our leader choking on the past, we need a name that sticks with our ideals
>>31571376If we want to do the Wizards thing and show that we're against the establishment, we should pick something like the Warlocks.Though that's coming off as too edgy, probably.
>>31571332Go ahead.GM Fiat it.
>>31571409WE ARE NOT TRIPLE H!
>>31571409That's an idea, how about something like a Revolution or a Cycle?
>>31571332I think what >>31571210 and >>31571225 suggested would work nicely. Team Sorceror, or Team Warlock, or something.Or Team Magus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRPKQlpz5tI.
>>31571283My issue is that it reeks of doing something for the sake of cool and/or because people are playing the latest Metal Gear Solid game, something that /tg/ has been known to do.
I agree with the guys suggesting we use Gunpla Sans Frontieres as our motto, it's a little long for a team name.
>>31571436Heralds of Change/of the Revolution?
>>31571443>the latest Metal Gear Solid gameYou know it's from Peace Walker, which came out in 2010 right? Hardly a cutting edge reference.
Non-Competitive Gunpla Club of (school name)
>>31571443I like Gunpla Sans Frontieres because it fits us. We play Gunpla like we want to, without the boarders inposed by groups like the Gunpla Club. However it works as a Motto too, and calling ourselves the Magicians Four or something would be good too.
>>31571444It does make a good motto.I can picture it on our team patches now..<Team Name>[Stylized Picture of Balls]-Gunpla Sans Frontieres-
>>31570405I can never tell just what the fuck this thing is made out of, the crotch area looks like a Brylants but thats about it
>>31571409>>31571437There's some magic-users in an IP who manipulate genetic information using magic to create wondrous and deadly creatures to supply their armies, and numerous types of magically engineered flora to suit their whims. It's also the name of a Psionicist subclass: Shapers.
>>31570210>The two boxing Fists.>Ones Freedom, the other's named Justice.Well that might be awkward if they ever come up against my Super W, since the GN Drive Bits are named Dexter the Just and Larboard the Free...>>31570306...That's a Zoid son...>>31570422>>31570478Heavy-Arms Torso on a Guntank base... IT'S PERFECT!!!>>31570569>NEW GUNPLA ENCOUNTERED: OBSIDIAN OVERFLAG...I think I just fell in love with that machine...>>31570621>Hardpoints on the Balls themselves.This would be good, as it would not only allow us to easily swap our balls equipment out of battle, but also allow us to use one ball to recover the equipment of another.>Head and chest vulcans from the Double X Gundam.>Trick grenade launchers.If you're going to go this route, you might as well use the Mutli-Launchers from the Gundam-Ground Type.Having two of those on the chest with smoke Grenades equals instant smoke screen!
>>31571490the ball thing is starting to smell.....but ya lets keep GSF as a motto
>>31571416Our leader is using a black Overflag with it's legs replaced with blades.We've got some edge room to play with before we're at risk of upping the edge factor any farther.
>>31571490Why in the fuck would you make a patch based on the UC'S flying coffin
>>31571499Oh great, another self-important namefaggot.Yay.
>>31571443Eh? I thought is was a Doctors without Borders reference.
>>31571353but as >>31571364 points out, Militaires Sans Frontieres is a play on Médecins Sans Frontières, so insulting one name is also, ultimately, insulting the other.Regardless, I personally don't like the sound of 'The Wizards' as a codename. I'd rather it, Militaires San Frontieres/Médecins Sans Frontières/Gunpla San Frontieres themed or not, be reflective of why the group had to form in the first place.Mainly because the main reason is that the gunpla club is a bunch of dildoes that won't let people in based on their discriminatory views. If our goal is something that opposes the gunpla club and its ways, it should be apparent in its title.
>>31571522shut the fuck up he has not started shit yet
>>31571518Because its fun.Who gives a flying fuck.
>>31571542The ball joke is getting old now dude.
>>31571332"Free To Play"
>>31571539sure looks like his boyfriend is ready to defend him on the internet, though.You're pretty salty there mate.
>>31571461Winds of Change4 Horsemen
>>31571562You know I could live with that.
>>31571560agreed! I am getting sick of it now NO MORE BALLS! I love the ball but it is going overboard now
>>31571506As long as we keep 'em clean, it should be fine.
>>31571560this is what happens when you picked the UC option. We should have went with something diffrent but NO we had to go for UC.Honestly... fuck we should have went for G-Gundam or Gundam 00
>>31571478MGSV came out semi-recently and since it deals with big boss, odds are that's a reminder to people.And it doesn't help that people are assuming she's suggesting that JUST BECAUSE of daddy issues and not other htings like how they actually performed or their MS style.>>31571560/tg/ habit no2: overrunning a joke to the point of killing it.
>>31571580I like the balls as a symbolic statement on how the quality of the build is more important than the in-universe capabilities of the suit. That part's cool. But the testicle jokes are getting old.
>>31571562This seems so right yet so ....right.
>>31571491It's custom made from scratch. Some gal used 3D printers to make everything.Supposedly it's a Kampfer with a psycoframe piloted by one of the Purus.
>>31571609they'd have found something lame to overdo a joke about, these are manchildren we're talking about here.
>>31571622Balls are also an awesome mascot suit though.
>>31571562god damn.....it works!
>>31571562Yo, Buddy. Still alive?
MinutemenMidnight SocietyWestern Front
>>31571641NO! Mascots are silly and childish! You're not allowed to have fun! NO FUN!
>>31571611it might not be just because of daddy issues, but she does seem to hold her father in high regard.> "My father is a alumni of this school, and from what he's told me, the Gunpla Club used to be very different from what it is today. It encouraged creativity and fun, but now Gunpla in this school has changed. It's no longer about building what you want, or battling for the fun of it. Now the Gunpla scene here is ruled by optimized Gunpla, with optimized builds, using optimized equipment. Everybody uses the same cookie cutter builds. Gunpla battles have become... routine, and that's just terrible."followed by her wanting to use her father's group name makes people think she's too focuse on her father/his legacy.
>>31571655yup, just wondering when Merc is gonna post
>>31571669A part of me is wondering why the fuck is optimizing one's own gunpla a bad thing?
>>31571562... I like it.>>31571656> MinutemenBut I also like this and Outer HeavenMight be time for QM intervention. Be it dice rolling or otherwise.
>>31571609We should've gone with X. The X Divider is love. The X Divider is life.
>>31571609What would you have rather had us go with? I'm not challenging, just genuinely curious.>>31571641Okay, fun idea time: Haro Balls. Like miniature Psyco Haros. That has some potential for fun. Or, if that's too silly, copying the Haro's retractable limbs could be a nice way to enhance our Balls' utility.
>>31571713So AI Balls......that carry...Funnels?
>>31571710we can later I think....we just need the money!
>>31571641Indeed,>>31571622>>31571611>>31571560What jokes? Our suit makes use of a pair of heavily modified RB-79 Ball units.Unless you think the word 'Ball' is itself a joke, then perhaps you need to be more mature.
>>31571713Bolt Gundam or a Tiren
>>31571437...FUCK YES!!!WE ARE TEAM MAGNUS, THE SWORD THAT CLEAVES TRYHARDERY!!!>>31571522...Would it help if I told you the Super W is either too fast to keep within most field boundaries... or might just explode...
Agreeing here, we may overuse the balls joke but the principal behind it is strong.
>>31571700It's not very sporting in an amatuer league.They're high schoolers, they should be playing for fun, not for "ye bro im the stronkest."You know...basic tryharding shit gets real annoying real fast, especially when you're not even in a feeder league or anything.

>>31571655>>31571647>>31571578>>31571629>>31571706Kinda loving that fact that people liked my idea. I also like the idea of giving the balls retractable haro arms, maybe putting more guns on them, or hiding some beam sabers in there
>>31571775>Grapple based Gundamyes.
>>31571748No, not that. In-character it's not a joke. But OOC conversation keeps making double entendres and innuendos. It's getting annoying.
>>31571775Gentlemen... we must make this happen. We must show these weak captalistic gunpla the power of TRUE SOVIET GUNPLA
>>31571810WE BREAK THE FREEDOMS BACK AND MAKE IT HUMBLE! FUCK!
>>31571748the GM juggler choice was a partial result of the "huh huh he said balls" mentality, and part respect for it.
>>31571775Fuck that. Bolt Gundam + Cherno Alpha
>>31571747I think we're stuck with the Mook Suits theme for good.Which sucks, since X had some sexy grunts which will never be released as models.Neither will the Bertigo, for that matter, even though it's the illegitimate son of the Qubeley.
Why do I have the feeling that the guy/girl who uses Soviet-style Gunpla will become Mac's rival?
>>31571827>Iron Shiek in G Gundamwhy do I want this?
>>31571713>>31571776I do think Haro is a good Mascot for what we want to do, he symbolism the fun of Gundam after all!
>>31571776Different balls for different scenarios.In Space? Just deploy balls.On land?Air Balls or BallTanks!Underwater?Pic Related.
>>31571850which fucking suck's man. We should be better than this.
>>31571850>>31571869knowing merc...never say never
>>31571830I think we just thought it would be cool to make Ball units badass and the ultimate cheap underdog unit. Yes we can get a chuckle out of the occasional phrasing, but I don't believe that was the driving reason.
>>31571821We'll need the AGE-1 Titus for that as well.Fucking Beam Fists, man.
>>31571865taking down the special snowflakes with our ball based wolfpack tactics. A ball for every situation.
>>31571850>some sexy grunts which will never be released as models.Juggler was never released as a model either.We make custom units representing unrepresented suits.
>>31571850Hey, no one said we had to stick to UC grunts. We can use After War suits. Or the grunts of any other AU you want. Let's make a Balient/Ahead hybrid, or some crazy shit like that. It'll be fun.
>>31571887Fuck you, Balls be Ballin yo!>>31571888Indeed, it's the most realistic unit in the Gundam Universe, but it still gets no love...
>>31571912Or... beating the fuck out of them
>>31571926But knowing us asperger manchilderen we will stick with the stupid grunts
>>31571903Technically, it has beam forearms, not fists. It needs to perform lariats to hit the enemy. It's a wrestler Gundam, not a boxer Gundam. Still badass, though.
>>31571903Nah, Mac suit needs a Titus upgrade though...Imagine a beam blade along the edge of his shield...
>>31571768yeah, but it also goes against 'making your gunpla into whatever it is you want.'If you've yet to get yourself into serious competition and you're testing the limits of what you can do, being told you can't is just as limiting as saying 'you can't because its a grunt'For example, it'd be Telling Yuuki from GBFs that he can't use his Zaku Amazing or Sei can't use his Build Strike before they go off to join elimination because they're too good.
>>31571926I don't think UC grunts are that limited, considerin the nature of many 'original' upgrades seen in the gunpla sereis.>>31571999I think it's more the no fun mentality insisting only on high end suits, and quite possibly canon builds only.
>>31571999the eliminations for tournament I mean.
>>31571999I think the idea is that they're NOT making it into whatever they want. They're making it into whatever works best, with little room for creativity. Just a handful of builds that get rehashed time and time again, because they've been proven effective. No one's experimenting, no one's trying new things.
favorite one off grunt suit?
>>31572042sounds a lot like the reason I don't go to 40k tournaments. WAAC players just take all the fun out of it for me
>>31571999The point is that the main club isn't letting you make whatever you want. If you aren't using one of the suits they say are allowed you can't join.The entire point of using grunt suits is to stick it to them with something they don't allow.
>>31571041"Hmmmm, maybe we should try something a bit more original." You frown. "How about the Sorcerers?""Hmmmm, that does sound acceptable." Karen smile and nods. "Maybe we could also use a team motto...""Gunpla sans Frontieres." Lucina says."What's that?" You ask, a bit confused."Oh, it's just a French phrase." Lucina says. "It translates roughly to "Gunpla Without Borders", or "Gunpla Without Boundaries". I thought it would be fitting for a team such as ours.""You're just saying that because you want to justify taking French last year." Mac shakes his head."Hey, how was I supposed to know literally nobody in the United States spoke it?" Lucina retorts."I really like that!" Karen grins. "So it's decided. Henceforth we shall be known as the Sorcerers, and our motto is 'Gunpla sans Frontieres!'"Everybody nods at the decision."Now, the day still isn't over yet." Karen stands up. "I'll file the required paperwork to the Student Council the get the team formed. You should probably try to recruit more members, or get some intel on our rival teams.">Let's go recruit!>Let's go scout!>Other
>>31571999Missing the point.You can optimize if you want, but nobody should be FORCED to optimize in order to fit in. If you want to run some janky ass frankenstein abomination that should be fine, because it's about modelling skill and pilot skill before it's about what parts you use.
>>31572042Hey, I'm all for if it's not broke don't fix it just improve on it. The Nintendo strategy is limiting but it works
>>31571918Juggler can be made from Balls and GMs. Most AW grunts have to be scratch-built.But yeah, we can always make one of our own.>>31571926>BalientYou're my nigga. Balient/Aries hybrid? Or the Patulia for something that's over 5 meters long?
>>31571988It'd still be a good upgrade for Mac's Super Maxter though...My Super W, on the other hand, would have wire-guided Beam (-sheathed) Rocket Fist...
>>31572042isn't that what we're basically doing with the GM juggler, though? It was already a thing.We limited ourselves to the balls and GM because it works well, we've done little outside that for actually building is what we've been up to in the meantime is what it sounds like to me.
>>31572073>Let's go recruit!Let's get a sniper!
>>31572073>>Let's go recruit!
>>31572073>Let's go scout!recon before deployment
>>31572073>RecruitAs if we wouldn't immediately do team building.
>>31572073>Let's go recruit!
>>31572073>Let's go recruit!recruiting time! lets go scope out the line crowd of players that got rejected by team tryhard.
>>31572073scout out things.Not knowing what we're getting into is going to be an issue. We need to see the type of competition we'll be facing.
>>31572073and the daddy issue train is on the rails Good job fuckers
>>31572073>Let's go recruit!Preferably by kidnapping them via Fulton ballon
>>31572073>>Let's go recruit!before promising ones are snatched up or lose interest.
>>31571988Right, but we can add some beam fists to it as well. And having extra bulk and armor doesn't hurt anybody.
>>31572065Barzam.Or Gadelaza, but I don't think that counts (although it did get mass produced in the novels)Fun fact: A 1/144 scale Gadelaza would be a little over 2 meters long.A 1/400 scale Gadelaza (which is the scale the White Base model is) would still be 3/4ths of a meter long.
>>31572098Firstly, ours is a custom Juggler, we've modified it from the canon. Second, there's no pre-existing Gunpla of it, so we had to kitbash it for ourselves. Thirdly, the point is that we're doing our own thing instead of just sticking to the conventional wisdom of effective builds. GM Juggler may already exist, but it's not something popular to use in Gunpla Battle. We're basically Gundam hipsters.
>>31572176I don't know about that. Officially, the Gadelaza is bigger than your average warship, but we see it next to other suits and it doesn't appear to actually be that large. It looks to be more Dendrobium sized than Patulia sized.
>>31572073>Let's go recruit!>>31572098Um... no? We picked a theme and we're using it because we feel like it, which is what people should be doing. In no possible universe could a goddamn GM Jugger be considered optimal when we could have built the Gundam Wing Zero Double Rapist Explosion Custom Three-Times-Faster Sexbot 9000 like everyone else in the better-than-you Gunpla Club.
>>31572073Am I the only one who wants to see our leaders combat effectiveness? Not much of a fucking gunpla club if our daddy issues leader can't pilot worth a damn
I'm hoping we can pull a sniper.And someone who's REALLY into water based matches and has a gundam with torpedos, claws, and tentacles.
>>31572073Recruit/Scout.No reason we can't do both. Focus more on recruitment though.Particularly by watching for talent in the official club's rejections.
>>31572181If we're gunpla hipsters, we need the G-Savior.
>>31572268The G-Savior Juggler Custom.Our final, ultimate fuck-you that we bring out for only a single match when we finally crush the Gunpla Club.
>>31572268That was actually proposed as our mid-season upgrade last thread. A customized G-Saviour that we field in our major battles with the Gunpla Build Club, just to fuck with them. Because if there's anything they'll hate more than getting beat by mooks, it's getting beat by THAT.
>>31572253There's going to be one guy who has no idea what he's doing and just bought a shitload of kits and just slapped on all the cool bits and calls it "Franken-pla" or something.
>>31572268Or if we want to be an even worse hipster, the G-Reco.What better way to show how hip you are than to come in in a Gundam that's not even made yet?
>>31572268Disgusting... using a model from something that horrible
>>31572268Best part? There totally is a G-Saviour model in GBF's universe.>>31572336Eh. It's mediocre. I'd say it's better than some Sci-Fi originals.
>>31572215Official size is 302 meters. And it actually is at least as big as the ship it launches from, if not bigger once it transforms.I love that thing, it's such a bastard. Shame Descartes gets munched before he gets to do much.
>>31572297I think using something just to mess with them would make us little better than they are.
>>31572314>>31572289>>31572268>>31572238>>31572181Sure is /toy/'s gunpla general here with their GM customized build fighter build in here.
>>31572314While that is hipster as fuck, it might be the kind of hipster that doesn't piss off the elitists (or at least close enough they'll be able to rationalize it) considering it is a protag Gundam from an anime, the fact that it hasn't aired yet being mostly academic.
>>31572308Or someone who couldn't afford one himself; but just mooched off all the spare bits of his friends and put them on the cheapest model available and is convinced it is THE BEST.
>>31572418Watch, it'll win matches simply based on the fact that nobody knows what the hell it does or where it's weak points are.
>>31572437Exactly.And obligatorily he becomes friends with the "Ork" of our group who is all about custom guns and stapling as many of them on a unit as possible."Melee? Nigga, the fuck is melee?"
Byarlant Juggler Custom maybe?
>>31572073"I guess we can go see if we can round out our team a bit more." You say."Thanks. The process shouldn't take more than half a hour. If you find some new members, bring them here and we can have our first official meeting." Karen nods before leaving the room.With that, you, Mac, and Lucina exit the room as well and head back towards the common area. The club recruitment event is still going strong, but you already see the crowd having thinned, now that most of the freshmen have found their own clubs and teams to join. This might get a bit tricky."Okay, we'll have to split up I guess." You say. "We'll come back in twenty minutes, okay?""Right." Mac nods."Affirmative." Lucina says.With that, you all go your separate ways in the crowd.>roll 1d20

>>31572860You know, I bet there's a Gunpla club devoted to one-upping the Beargguy by exclusively building and battling with increasingly absurd Acguy variants.
>>31572934I'm perfectly fine with that.
>>31572503You sort of wander through the crowd when you see a brunette girl with a bright red scarf, which is what catches your attention. Oddly enough, you find yourself moving off in her direction, where you see her talking with a recruiter for one of the teams. You get close enough just in time to hear their conversation. "I'm sorry, but we're actually not taking any more applications. Our roster is full." The recruiter says apologetically. "Oh, I understand. It was worth at try anyways!" She smiles and turns, nearly walking right into you. "Oh sorry! I didn't see you there!""Ah, it was my fault for standing too close." You chuckle lightly. "Actually, um, I overheard that you were looking to join a team? Well, ours is currently recruiting...""Hmmmm.... the girl smiles and closes her eyes. "You do seem to be the type of team I'd want to join. You love Gunpla quite a lot, don't you?""Well, yeah." You say."I can tell, seeing as you've taken care of your GM so well!""Wait, how do you know my Gunpla...?" You raise an eyebrow."Well, it's simple, silly!" The girl grins. "I'm a Newtype!~">Um, Newtypes aren't actually real...>Humor her for a bit>Other

>>31572973Well, she was a bit weird but you suppose you'd humor her for a bit."Uh huh, yeah, and I'm an Innovator." You joke."Hmmmmm..." The girl leans in closer. "Nope! You don't have the right eyes for it.""Uh huh." You sigh. "So what kind of GM am I using, then?""Well... it's not a standard one, nor one of the common variants." The tilts closes her eyes and tilts her head. "It uses Balls, though.""Okay, really, how did you know that?" "It told me, of course!" The girl giggles."What, you're some kind of Gunpla Whisperer?" You ask a bit suspiciously. This girl was definitely pretty odd... though not in a bad way, you think."Possibly!" The girl nods. "Let me ask you a question. Do you think Gunpla have souls?">No, not really.>I'd like to think they're alive in some way.>Other

>>31573319Gunpla's don't have souls, no matter how much life we put into them they're just models in the end
>>31573319I don't know, but it's an unforgettable experience- the first time you see them come to life.People say some machines have souls or spirits to them. So, with plavsky particles, who knows?
>>31573319"We're getting into some weird Geth territory here... I'm not sure if robots have souls, much less toy robots... or how to even define a soul."
>>31573319>Other"We infuse them with AI-controlled exotic particles. If that doesn't imprint on them somehow I would be very surprised.

>>31573319>>I'd like to think they're alive in some way.Hell, it would be the only logical was to explain the magic of plasky particles. For some form of the intent of the maker to work its way into their model. 'cause there ain't no way that system can make things 'alive' so well just from itself.

>>31573532DAMN YOU HAIR DYE!
>>31573319>I'd like to think they're alive in some way.no matter how many times I hear the science behind plavasky particles it still feels magical in some way
>>31573319Can we for once pic the logical answer. "No they don't have souls."
>>31573552Except that probably isn't the correct answer.
>>31573552>Can we for once pic the logical answer.This is a setting where magic particles produced from a crystal brought from an alternate reality where people can use the crystals to exist in our world and the particles can move Plastic Models and versions of existing characters from Gundam both dead and alive exist and have happy endings.Gunpla having Souls makes as much sense as anything else in setting.
>>31573552Well, they might, due to Plavsky bullshit.
>>31573609man has a point!
>>31573552NO FUN ALLOWED
maybe I be so bold as to suggest Ez8 sometime down the line?its fluff (a frankensteined GM made from whatever spare parts were lying around and the word Gundam tacked on to its name purely for morale/prestiage) fits with the underdog motif.or no MC suits allowed?
>>31573609>>31573629Not really. "Science be whack."There you go. Now you have toys that fight that are just toys that fight.
>>31573657I love the Ground Gundam and the ez8 so YES
>>31573665Did you not watch the series at all? That is literally exactly the plot behind Plavsky.
>>31573657Attach some Juggler Parts then I'm in.Ball jokes aside, I like our Juggler system
>>31573609But that's meta gaming.
>>31573689we have not used it in battle yet
>>31573707Not in quest.I'm sure out character has battled with it before.
>>31573657I've always been a fan of the Ez8, I'd support it when it comes time to upgrade our chassis later on.
>>31573609Right and the mabari hound is useless
>>31570087you forget the EXAM system
>>31573707We had and tested it. >>31573739Again, I'll support it if we add the Juggler system too
>>31573657I'd like to pick up an RX-78-1 and make it into a high speed ground aggressor MS. Maybe even do a ground and a space armor set for it.
>>31573757... You must WANT to be hit don't you
>>31573657At this point its a matter of pride to use grunt suits.
>>31573782Its a grunt man its not a real gundam
>>31573782That thinking is going to get our ass kicked
>>31573782Our thing is build what we want though. As long as we're having fun with it, we shouldn't limit ourselves to just grunts.
>>31573782seeing how like most of are team uses gundams that just sounds dumb am I ok with grunt suits ya but do not bring pride into it
>>31573815Do you even underdog story?
>>31573845Underdog story's are nice and fanciful but they're just that. If we're going to win we need to be on a level playing field.Capatcha: ceudgeth andBy the way this conversation is going we're dealing with an autistic girl legion
>>31573873>legionGunpla aren't robots ya dolt.
>>31573782The Ez8 is still pretty grunty. Like he said, it's basically a higher spec Franken-GM.>>31573815You can win with lower spec suits just fine in this universe, they're just less forgiving and require more customization and modelling skill to get the same results out of them. The up-side is it's easier to bust out a custom frankenmech with them.
>>31573845Gundam Build Fighter isn't an underdog story, though.Its a 'look at all of this ridiculous bullshit customs story.'If we actually want to win later on we'll need to be on that level.
>>31573609Fucking really? We can't just have toys that fight? Why did I expect anything else of japan.
>>31573808Still a gundam though.>>31573818Exactly. What we want. I dont see a reason to change the chassis.>>31573838Whats the point in defeating the gunpla club with a gunpla that conforms to their rules?
>>31573886Not to mention the GM is the basis to major customization. If anything we can upgrade it to a GMII or GMIII, later based on our chassis if anything
Just wondering, would the NT-D system activate against a MS with EXAM system?
>>31573873As we told Charlotte in the first thread:We play for fun.Being win-optimization obsessed is what makes the Gunpla Club a bunch of dildos.
>>31573319"I'd like to think they're alive in some way." You nod. A lot of builders you knew, including Dad, always believed that the act of building your own model put a little of your own soul into it. You're not sure if it was real or not, but you'd like to think that your GM Juggler understood you on some level. Hell, considering the fact they were finding out new things about Plavsky Particles every day, you wouldn't be surprised if they'd one day suddenly come to life for real."That settles it!" The girl claps. "I'll agree to join your team! It's not often I can find people who'd play along with my Newtype act!""Uh huh, implying that I actually believed it." You grin."Well, it was the thought that counts." The girl giggles. "My name's Amy Fedell.""I'm-""Jack Foulke!""Okay seriously, that's getting kinda creepy." You frown."Sorry, sorry, I just couldn't resist!" Amy giggles. "I'm actually Mason's niece. When I transferred here he recommended I come find you."Okay, that would explain things."And that whole 'Gunpla are alive' thing?""Oh, I actually genuinely believe that one!" Amy smiles. "It's my dream one day to make an actual, living Gunpla!"Well, there were odder dreams out there. At least she seemed enthusiastic about hers."Okay, so I assume you've got a Gunpla you can use?" You ask."Yep!" Amy digs into her bag.(cont)
>>31573912And there's nothing wrong with winning. Winning is fun.

>>31573923NEW GUNPLA ENCOUNTERED: DEATHSCYTHE ROZENIt was a Deathscythe, painted black with red highlights. It mostly looked the same, except for its primary weapon, which your realized was a custom job. Instead of the regular beam scythe, it had a physical blade, with what looked a recoiless rifle built into it as well."Huh, that's pretty cool." You say."Isn't it? I always did like Deathscythe. It's sort of the reaper of Gundams.""What, and you use it to collect the souls of the Gunpla you defeat?""Something like that!" Amy laughs.Huh, well, you already roped in one member. Maybe you should link back up with the others.>Let's head back now.>Let's see if you can find anybody else.>Other

>>31573948>>Let's see if you can find anybody else.One more!
>>31573948>Let's head back now.Lets see if anyone else found someone.
>>31573906We don't have to change the chassis on the Juggler, but that doesn't stop us from making other suits to use in other situations.Sei and Reiji had two each, one they shared. Nils had three. The Renato Brothers had two or three.
>>31573948>Let's see if you can find anybody else.>Gunpla have souls... so I murder them and absorb them te-heejesus...
>>31573892>look at all of this ridiculous bullshit customs storySo Sinanju Unicorn?>>31573911Because of the trapped soul of a Newtype? Maybe. It activates in a presence of a Newtype, so it's really up to whether it'd register the EXAM as a Newtype or not. Also, the Unicorn is all bullshit levels of OP. It's basically magic. If the plot demands it to kill an EXAM, it'd kill an EXAM.
>>31573899Gunpla Builders was the "Toys that fight" one. It had VR Cockpit Pods that'd scan your Model and load a virtual version.

>>31573948>Let's see if you can find anybody else.Ruby a cute, even if the show was kinda meh.
>>31574078Yup.I wholeheartedly recommend you check out Build Fighters though. It's a fun as hell ride, and you don't even really worry about the alternate universe magic shit. It's 25 episodes of awesome cameos and mecha porn.
>>31574117Volume 2 is actually looking better considering they're now going to do around 10 twelve minute episodes with less exposition and more plot advancing.
>>31574075Will it be the clueless newbie with lots of heart and enthusiasm?Or disillusioned veteran from the big gunpla club who sees little reason to renew his membership?Or a person with a "war is hell" attitude who brings a stompy robot to the field and uses tactics and the environment to slowly wear down the opponent until he ends it in one well-placed barrage?
>>31574115Until we have stapled parts from 4+ different kits onto the same unit, we're not that guy.
>>31574151Or a guy who thinks all problems can be solved with more guns?Or a guy who is only interested in water battles despite everyone else hating them.Honestly this setting leads itself to dozens of types of characters and even more builds.
>>31574029Yeah, it's pretty sweet.
>>31574151would not mind the last one.
>>31574130I am kinda planning to since I look around a bit after last week's thread and found generally favorable reviews of it. God knows I have put up with worse bullshit when watching anime.>>31574138Good to know. I would likely watch it regardless just for the occasions cool fights.
>>31573948You decide to spend the last few minutes you've got searching for someone else."Come on, Amy, let's go see if we can rope someone else into our little club.">roll 1d20
>>31574157That's just a challenge for us to do Neo Switzerland's suit next.
>Whole Thread Without ANYTHING Zeonish...
>>31573989that's something I would not be surprised to see in GBF, and it looks nice.But, honestly, the few suits that were grunts were weeded out despite their high-end pilots by facing MS customization that was ridiculous and bullshit. The one that came the closest were the bros and they used underhanded trickery to win and they were beaten by being outsmarted by further customization- after their match the last 4 were all majorly customized gundams or high end MS with excellent pilots.
>>31574115Ours is still a thing that exists in a recognizable form in a Gundam universe, so not quite.When we start making Juggler variants of non-GM suits, then we'll be getting close. When we do that while also swapping out at least one limb for something else then we'll be there.

>>31573948For reference, which form of Deathscythe is the base? Protective cloak, batwings. other?
>>31574548The Leo is kinda like a 3025 trooper medium 'mech trying to succeed in 3145. Sure, it's cheap and reliable and adaptable, but it falls behind the times. But bureaucracy and general indolence prevent any real upgrades until they go "oh shit! Gundams!"Then comes the Virgo and Serpent, which seem to be extrapolations/upgrades of the Leo chassis.
>>31574626I think it's the original, not the Hell variant.
>>31574626The protective cloak is the batwings.And that's Deathscythe Hell, the improved version. The original doesn't have those.
>>31574548Ball Deployed Defensors?Mmmmmm....

>>31575012"Dakka" and "enough" should never next to each other in a sentence.
>>31574203You find another student who seems to be milling about aimlessly. There's nothing about him that really stands out, though, other than the fact that you can tell he's actively looking for a group."Hey, you looking for a team?" You ask him."Actually, yeah, I sorta am." He nods. "You guys looking to recruit?""Yeah, we have openings." You nod. "We're newly formed and pretty small, but it's still a team.""Hey, at this point, I'll take anything I can get." The student sighs. "Guess that's what I get for dozing off after class rather than coming straight here.""You know what they say about early birds and worms." You chuckle. "My name's Jack, by the way. This here is Amy, who's also joining our team.""Pleasure. My name's Jake Bradley." Jake nods. "I suppose you want to see my Gunpla?""Yeah." You nod.NEW GUNPLA ENCOUNTERED: GUNTANK TUSKERWell... it's definitely something. You don't recognize it at first, until your realize that it was a fusion of the standard Guntank and the RTX-440 version."Hmmmm... judging from the build, I assume it transforms?" Amy asks as she leans forward for a closer look."Yep!" Jake grins. "It has two modes: Siege Mode and Breacher Mode. See, in Artillery Mode, the torso raises up like this so the shoulder cannons come up the shoulders and it can swivel and use indirect fire. In Breacher Mode, it compacts itself into a smaller size. The guns can only point forward, but it can go hella fast."Well, that was really cool. You guess your team could use some pure muscle."Cool. Well, since there's six of us total, we should be heading back for our first team meeting. Shouldn't take too long." You say.(cont)
>>31575057You lead both your new recruits back to the club room. There, you see Mac and Lucina already there, sitting idly at the desks."Aw man, you found two? Me and Lucina had no luck at all." Mac sighs. "Not a lot of people want to risk joining up with an unproven team.""Well, at least smaller groups are easier to manage." Lucina adds in.And so you introduce Amy and Jake to Mac and Lucina, and you all start comparing each of your Gunpla, commenting on both build styles and fighting strategies. Finally, Karen returns with a stack of papers."Well, it's official. Sorcerer Team is now an official school Gunpla team." Karen grins. "Ah, and I see we have two new members?""Yep, this here is Amy and Jake." You say. "Excellent." Karen claps. "Now, let's get right down to the meat of the matter. Since we're a Gunpla battle team, we need to be able to gauge each others' skills. So how about we stage a bit of an impromptu battle here?""Yeah, sure." You shrug. Your other team members nod."Well, Jack, since you managed to recruit two new members, I'll give you the first pick." Karen nods. "Who would you like to test yourself against?">Exia Cuirassier>Super Maxter>Obsidian Overflag>Deathscythe Rozen>Guntank TUSKER

>>31575076>Obsidian OverflagWe've no doubt fought our friends before. Lets mix it up.Also page 7 warning.Also also; hell yes we finally got some big dakka.
>>31575076>>Exia CuirassierWe're fighting gundam
>>31575146So? When's that ever not-been exciting as fuck?
>>31575169but muh balance!
>>31575076>>Obsidian OverflagTime to see who we've hitched our wagon to.
>>31575179Balance can suck a nut when we're getting ratings and selling merch at the rate we are.Nobody's interesting in pitchers throwing perfect games. Everyone's interested in a 13-12 homerunpalooza.
>>31575179We have tusker to nuke fools
>>31575146Well at least we have the Tusker for support or in worst case scenario, direct fire.
>>31575076> Obsidian OverflagI read that as Obsidian Overfag.
>>31575219>>mfw Tusker rolls a crit success for Direct Fire.
>>31575237They never find the upper half of their high nu gundam......again
what if Powered GM Juggler?
>>31575219Absolute worst case scenario is BROKEN ARROW while engaged in melee.
>>31575250I'd hot glue it/.
>>31575250Look, we're going to need to just go with GM Juggler Custom and leave it at that, cause we want to take parts from a bunch of stuff for it and playing with adding all the names to it would be silly.
>>31575219I don't think it's as bad as it seems., Deathscythe Rozen has a sniper rifle built into its scythe, so it can pull double duty as ranged support. Tusker's got heavy artillery. Exia Curraiser isn't great for ranged but can manage. And while our Balls' size means we can't mount enough of them for funnel spam, they have heavier beam cannons to make up for it . We can deal with ranged without too much trouble.
>>31575321Is camouflage legal? I can imagine using camo netting for the Tusker to make it an ambushing "TD" like an M18 Hellcat.
>>31575335It is. There was one gunpla that was painted with reflective paint (basically chrome) in the show that was legit.And there're the cloaked funnels the Qubeley used.
>>31575321Correction, I made a mistake in my analysis: Our Balls's cannons fire solid rounds, not beam. Still pretty useful>>31575335I'm pretty sure it is. There are outright invisible suits, camouflage isn't that OP compared to that.
>>31575076"I challenge YOU, Karen. My GM Juggler against your Obsidian Overflag!" You say, pointing at your new team leader. If you were going to be part of this team, you had to at least get a measure of how good your leader was."As expected. I accept your challenge." Karen says calmly as she stands up. "We have a practice table set up in this room that we can use.""DID SOMEBODY SAY GUNPLA BATTLE?!" You hear a loud voice boom."What the?" You blink."Oh dear." Karen sighs. "Father warned me about him...""I am Jager High's official Gunpla Battle Judge!" The Judge laughs as he suddenly materializes in the room. "No battle can happen on school grounds without me observing it!""Okay... so can we start?" You ask."Of course!"Karen then turns on the battle table, which hums to life."PLEASE SET GP BASE."GM JUGGLER vs. OBSIDIAN OVERFLAG"BEGINNING PLAVSKY PARTICLE DISPERSAL.""FIELD: DEBRIS FIELD.""Haha! Now let's get this started!" THe Judge chortles. "GUNPLA FIGHT SET! READY! GO!"Your GM Juggler launches into the battlefield. Already, you're wincing at your prospects. The debris field was set in space, where a massive space battle had once erupted. The entire area was littered with destroyed mobile suits and gutted ship hulks. For a fast, close combat suit like Obsidian Overflag, this was ideal terrain.Grimacing, you release your two balls, which pop off their shoulder mounts, their optics glowing bright green as their autocannons arm themselves. Though they were autonomous, they weren't too smart, and still required orders from you to operate efficiently.>Send them out to scout the debris field.>Keep them close to you for protection.>Other

>>31575364>Keep them close to you for protection.We should proceed in a formation where each of the Balls can cover each other and us, and so that we can cover the Balls.
keep them close to you for protection
>>31575364And we have our first cameo! Marvelous. Though I have to wonder how Stalker gets through the day if he responds like this to the words "Gunpla Battle" being said. I think that would happen around once a minute here. Anyway, as for orders: Can we split the Balls up? Presumably we don't have to give them both the same order. We should send one out to scout while the other protects us.

Rolled 4, 13, 14, 11 = 42>>31575364You decide to keep the Balls close to you for now. No sense in splitting up and getting picked off one by one. You glance at your sensor screen and scowl. With all the false returns being generated by the debris, using scanning instruments of any kind was next to useless. You'd have to rely on visual sensors for this battle. Using your numbers to your advantage, you send one Ball slightly ahead of you both to scout and to act as bait, while the other sticks close to you to watch your back. You carefully pick your way through the debris field, pushing away the odd mobile suit wreck.>roll 1d20

>>31575628>Fire your beam rifle. You might get a lucky hit.We've got 16 shots. Let's go for the money shot.
>>31575628>Fire your beam rifle. You might get a lucky hitAlso: Back the fuck up.We need to keep our distance since there's no way we can take her in melee.
>>31575634Don't underestimate a Guntank in space, hell it could have magnets to attach itself to debris.
>>31575628>Fire your beam rifle. You might get a lucky hit.We can burn some ammo early on, and we may even get lucky. I'd rather not start chasing her through a debris field, too many hiding places.
Rolled 59>>31575364>>Keep them close to you for protection.No point spreading out
>>31575628>>Have your Balls cover you as you pursue.She won't expect us to go at her like this. We might get the drop.Staying back as is and blind firing is the recipe for an ambush,
>>31575628>Fire your beam rifle. You might get a lucky hit.Hit the Magellan's engine, let Minovsky/Plavsky physics do the rest.
>>31575666Are gendums even magnetic? Aren't they all bullshit future stuff (future relative to the 70s anyways) and made out of titanium and whatever?
>>31575634>>31575666The system is designed so that if land only Gunpla are being used, it will refrain from using space based fields.
>>31575666>Fire canon; debris starts spinning at high velocityHope it was a good shot.
Rolled 6>>31575628>Fire your beam rifle. You might get a lucky hit.>Final Shot Fuck Yeah
fire your beam rifle you might get a lacky hit
>>31575692Juggler counts as Space-type right?Because Ball equipment is space-only.
>>31575692So you're saying that we can force the system to avoid space battle by including Jake in our team roster? Interesting. We'll have to take advantage of that at some point.
Rolled 5, 7, 7, 12 = 31>>31575628You fight the urge to pursue the Overflag. That was probably precisely what she wanted you to do. Instead of risking falling into an ambush, you pull back a bit and aim your beam rifle, pumping several shots into the Magellan hulk.>roll 1d20
>>31575727Ah yes, the power of Matchmaking.
Rolled 17>>31575735>>31575727I just want to see him go backwards at full speed and jump a ramp while firing his canon to go faster.
>>31575717Flight capable Gunpla are allowed to operate in non-space fields. However, naturally, gravity and air resistance will put a small penalty on their performance.
>>31575752Have him fire every single gun to make him become a rocket, then transform into artillery mode and use the cannon to help steer.
Rolled 16, 13, 17, 15 = 61>>31575752You pump several shots into the Magellan, the pink beams lancing through the derelict hulk as if it were made of paper. However, there's no secondary explosions or any other indication that you scored a hit. Well, you were now back at square one. You lost track of the Overflag, and it's hiding somewhere in the debris. >roll 1d20
Rolled 6>>31575798Nah, that's this guy, he'll probably show up later though.
Hoping this ends with her ambushing us from behind; stopping with her arms around our head about to deliver a killing blow. She compliments giving it our all, then we point out that a woman should never underestimate a mans balls, as she realizes they have locked into her head and torso, ending the match in a mexican standoff/ draw.
Rolled 4, 19, 13, 13 = 49>>31575870...

Rolled 2>>31575860oops, left my dice on, so if that doesn't count,>>31575853here's my roll. Actually, question, do rolls have to be linked to the post to count?
>>31575876I was just kind of getting upset at your post, but the ball joke brought it back and made me laugh.
>>31575883Suddenly, the Ball covering your back gives a warning chime. You spin around to see the Overflag has gotten behind you and is coming in at full speed. Your Ball's autocannons chatter, but instead of dodging, the Overflag keeps coming.You almost expect to see the Overflag get shredded, but instead extends its arms forward...And begins DEFLECTING the autocannon shells with its blades. Jesus how the fuck can it do that?!?!You take aim with your beam rifle, but your own Ball is in the line of fire. You could fire THROUGH your own Ball to hit the Overflag, or you could try to maneuver around it to get a different firing angle...>Sacrifice your Ball and take the shot.>Reposition to get a better angle.>Other
>>31575902And this is why we run balls.
>>31575968>Reposition to get a better angle.
>>31575968>>Sacrifice your Ball and take the shot.if it wanted to live forever, it would have never been a ball
>>31575968>Reposition to get a better angle.Never sacrifice the Balls. You must protect your Balls.
>>31575968>OTHERKICK BALL.INTO FLAGSHOOT FLAGWHEN IT DODGES
>>31575968Quick drop under; she'll go through the ball expecting us to be there and then BOOM Beam ruifle from below.sorry Ballbro, today just isn't your day.
reposition to get a better angle
>>31575968>Sacrifice your Ball and take the shot.Even in death our Balls serve.
>>31575995Only if we say "It's time to play Ball!" while we do it.
I can't remember can the Juggler Ball units grapple still or did they lose their arms?
>>31575995what an apropos write in> It is sometimes joked that (in Gundam 0079) the only time a Ball ever hit anything was when one is kicked into a GM by a Zaku II.
>>31576026On that note, if our Balls don't have some sort of beam chainsaw weapons, get them some.
>>31575995Let's do this
>>31575995Sure, sounds like a thing.
>>31575995I kind of like this one. Balls are at their most deadly when they're being kicked into things, so it might take her out entirely without us even needing to fire.
>>31576034Exactly why I suggested it.She'll never expect us to do this. And if shes as big a gundam nerd, she'll appreciate this.
Rolled 15, 8, 16, 8 = 47>>31575968Well, there was only one thing you could do in this situation.DESPERATION MOVE NUMBER 1You boost your GM Juggler forward at full speed, and kick your own Ball from behind, sending it hurtling toward the Overflag...(cont)
>>31576075should get K typesgrappling hook for hog tying and restricting movement
How long until our Ball AI becomes self aware and developed a deep-seated loathing for us?
>>31576104Or making a Bolo
>>31576114Ball is team player!
>>31576114It won't even have to be because of anything we do, it'll just hate us for bringing it into existence as a Ball. "Why, father? Why have you done this to me?"
Rolled 14, 19, 8, 3 = 44>>31576101At the speed it's going, the Overflag has no choice but to attack the Ball, slicing it clean in half to prevent it from impacting. You use the few valuable seconds to line up your shot...>roll 1d20
>>31576104That's why I asked up here >>31576026 if we had those or not. Really those arms can be a real pain in the ass if some body isn't expecting them to grapple.
>>31576114We can program them with the personalities of long-suffering tachikomas.
Rolled 3>>31576138fire away
Rolled 4>>31576138Ball was credit to team.
>>31576151based anon. That was close.
>>31576151One short, damn.
>>31576151Oh thank god...
>>31576162Okay that's twice my dice have been eaten... Late either way but still!>>31576151Damn so close.
Ball... had a hard life...
>>31576176>>31576185I would think we made it, unless her bonuses are bigger than the ball sacrifice shot penalties.
>>31576194While it was alive, it was pretty ballin'.
>>31576149That would be great. Tachikoma Balls.
>>31576151You fire your beam rifle, but the Overflag manages to twist to the side just in time. The beam passes by, gouging a shall wound in its chest but otherwise not causing any serious damage. The Overflag's head then turns your direction, its visor glowing a bright purple.Oh yeah, she was pretty pissed.You could try firing off another shot, or you call fall back on using your beam saber and shield. Your beam saber SHOULD have an advantage over her physical blades, and your shield should be able to protect you, as well.>Use your rifle.>Sword and board.>Other
>>31576194>I Just wanted to go into spesssss
>>31576216>Sword and board.
>>31576216>>Use your rifle.>>OtherFallbackkkkkkBall No.2 Where are youuuu
>>31576216Start falling back have the other ball split from us and shot at her.Fire the beam rifle as we fall back, also.
>>31576216> Sword and board.Begin flying the balls around and firing on her.
I hope repairs won't be that difficult.
>>31576216Use shield, fire one last beam round, use rifle to bock inevitable slice, drop broken gun, light up that saber
>>31576216>Balls circle strafe the shit out of her>use your rifle
>>31576258It's a Ball, we can always get more from our sister.
>>31576216>Sword and board.try to lock up with her and hold her in placevulcan heruse the remaining ball
>>31576216Sword and Board.. As a distraction for the other ball to shoot her while she can't parry it.She's a melee super build, i doubt we could stand up in a straight up duel. But we still have a ball unit left.
>>31576258There probably wasn't any real damage, I doubt you can actually split the ball model down the middle.
>>31576216>Sword and board.While we distract her with melee, have the remaining Ball come around and hit her in the back.
>>31576284Thats no sister
>>31576258Should be alright, gives us a chance to make modifications to it, anyway.
use your rifle
>>31576284Or even build one with a new system.>>31576293>>31576304Not a bad idea.
>>31576314No, no, you're misunderstanding, our sister just really likes Balls, ok? There's nothing wrong with that.
>>31576304And shoot into melee?More likely it'll hit us.
>>31576253>>31576278>Balls>thinking we have more than oneOther one went boom guys. It's a single ball now. And it's very sad.>>31576216Also;>Use your rifle.Try to have the last ball keep flanking her. Don't play to her strength until we have too.
>>31576216>Use your rifle.We're not really specced for CC, it'd be like fighting a lawnmower.
>>31576338Yeah, my bad. Plural was a typo.Still, one ball circlestrafing is better than no balls circlestrafing.
>>31576336This isn't FQ maaan
>>31576262this, plus have lonely ball flank her.
>>31576363It's so very lonely...Why'd you have to go and kick his bro like that guys?!
Do we have any quick firing boosters we could use to sidestep her charge at the last minute?
>>31576379just use one of the legs to block a sword and blast her while she's locked up.legs are for show in space
>>31576216You toss your beam rifle aside and bring out your beam saber. Karen was close enough that she'd be able to close the distance with you even if you fired first. You pulse a command to your remaining Ball to flank her. However, it would take several critical seconds for it to get into position. Maybe more since it had to navigate through the debris.The Overflag charges at you, its blades gleaming like starlight.>Dodge>Parry>Block>Other
>>31576423>Other.Let her come and attack you, hit her in the cockpit while she tries to hit other parts of us.
How strong is our shield? Or would it be just better to dodge...
>>31576423DodgeShe's too strong to parry and will easily shatter our shield>>31576442Have fun with all those repairs.
>>31576423>>OtherChargeBut disengage shield and flank her when she cuts it into half.
>>31576423>Block>Othertake one of (or both of) the swords with your leg. hold her in place while Ball takes the shot
>>31576423>BlockWe aren't going to match her agility, let the shield do it's job.
>>31576423>>ParryWe've got a beam saber. Solid blade versus beam rarely ends well.
>>31576423This >>31576455 then try for >>31576463Fake out charge let the shield fly at her, and try to get around for a grapple while the ball takes its shot.
>>31576423>BlockJust flat out block them until the ball saves the day...Really thinking people are getting a little too cute with other right now...
>>31576499This works.BRAVE or GRAVE?Fight!
>>31576505I'm sorry that trying to fight smart offends you.
>>31576530>smartKeep telling yourself that.
>>31576505We have yet to tell the ball to flank because it would take us time we don't have right now.
Rolled 8, 14, 20, 18 = 60>>31576423You raise your shield to block the incoming attacks.(cont)

Rolled 19>>31576546She has a 20. Great.
Rolled 1>>31575272That's not what Broken Arrow means...>>31576104Yes, and we can use them as impromptu flails!>>31576216Fall back with the Rifle, circle the ball around for a flanking maneuver.
>>31576499Shows that we're willing to put the main at risk for the balls to get a shot too.Teamwork man.
>>31576572>20 v 1And it's over
>>31576530She's in a souped-up Overflag, it's made of FAST and SWORD, dancing with it ain't the smart play.

>>31576588Aw yeah boi.
>>31576546Ok, seeing as you did that again, I'm assuming that those rolls don't count, but I just want to ask to make sure, we use the last set of rolls from you, right?
>>31576583>>31576572>>31576588Haha. Best fight.
>>31576588Son, you did Earth proud.
>(cont)What does this mean to you people? Really? What?Do you see roll 1d20 anywhere in that post?
People... people please.You roll when he tells you to roll. If Merc hasn't said to roll, it don't count, so stop flippin that shit.This is not rocket surgery.
Rolled 20, 13, 9, 18 = 60>>31576546The Overflag charges directly at you, and you're confident your shield would be enough to stop her attacks. However, you notice too late that her blades have taken on an orange glow...Heat blades!One of her blades drives straight through your shield and your left forearm, nearly stabbing your torso. Her other sword punches through the shield as well, and with some effort, swings both arms outward, shearing your shield in two and leaving your left arm dangling dangerously loose.But now your Ball was in position and ready to fire.>roll 1d20
Rolled 1>>31576632GG great leader

Rolled 13>>31576638Fucking double nigger.
>>31576638in my defense, we were screwed before hand anyways.
>>31576658Doesn't really matter. We got a nat 1. Though I guess between the two that means she dodged our fire and got us to shoot ourselves, or something like that.
>>31576632Well, at least we know she's not all talk. Girl got skills.
Don't we have a special ability that allows us to reroll a failed attack?
>>31576677And anon isn't a tactical genius.
>>31576681Only in close combat.
>>31576681....yes, yes we do.
>>31576637Karen lunges in for the kill but pauses for a split second as she realizes something is wrong. The Overflag then jets away as your remaining Ball brackets it with autocannon fire, chasing it off. The Overflag pauses for a second, as if deciding whether to risk going for you or take out the Ball.This leaves you with an opening to act while your Ball distracts her. >Charge in with your beam saber.>Grab your beam rifle and take a shot.>Other
