"Hey, what rank are they in the school, then?" You ask Karen."Last I checked, I believe they were ranked 12th.""So, um, this might be a dumb question, but if we beat them in this tourney, would we rank up?""You know..." Karen blinks. "It usually doesn't happen much, but because this is an officially recognized Bandai event... I might be able to convince the school board that this would be a legitimate battle.""Yeah, and if we do lose, what's the worst that can happen? Be bumped down to last place?" Amy grins."Yeah... thanks for reminding us of that." You sigh. "Hey, you guys ready to lose, or what?" You hear someone almost sneer. You see your opponents on the opposite end of the table. Yeah, they were definitely from your school. (cont)
>>32027526"All right, set down your Gunpla and GP Bases!" The referee announces. You and the other battlers do so.And you wince when you see two Gelgoogs and a goddamn Val Varo. Of course it had to be a Val Varo, not a Mobile Armor with obvious weaknesses like the Big Zam or Elmeth. "Oh, this might be troublesome." Karen frowns."They're fighting us with a giant lobster?" Amy raises an eyebrow."Amy, have you ever seen any of the UC side series?" You look at your partner."Ummmm, does anything after Wing count?"You just shake your head.BEGINNING PLAVSKY PARTICLE DISPERSALFIELD: SPACE STATIONYour three mobile suits spawn in a space field, with a large asteroid space station located in the middle of the map. It would at least provide you with some cover."Okay, we need a plan of attack before we proceed." Karen says.>Focus on taking out the Gelgoogs first. Without MS support the Val Varo is a sitting duck.>Focus on the Val Varo first.

>>32027537>Focus on taking out the Gelgoogs first. Without MS support the Val Varo is a sitting duck.The Val Varo is actually not the best unit for space combat, ironically. It's actually best in the lunar environment that it was used in during 0083. In zero-G we're just as mobile as it, if not as fast, and it can't use its plasma leaders as effectively without something to lodge them in. If we stay out of its path we should do reasonably well.
>>32027537>Focus on taking out the Gelgoogs first. Without MS support the Val Varo is a sitting duck.
>>32027708No Gundam boy, No Gundam.
>>32027537"We'll focus on taking out the Gelgoogs first." You say. "The Val Varo may be big and scary, but even MAs are vulnerable without MS support.""Good idea." Karen nods. "Though I suggest we get to cover."The three of you boost towards the central space station. You detach your Balls to give yourself an extra set of eyes and you keep a close eye on your radar screen. Sure enough, you get a BIG contact moving in."I got it on radar, and it's coming in FAST." You warn. Fortunately, since it seems the Val Varo is going full speed, it wouldn't be able to turn very well. You and your teammates quickly boost to the side so it wouldn't be able to bring its main weapons to bear on you.However, you notice something odd on your visual sensors. You zoom in and you see two large bulges on the top of the Val Varo, but it's not until pink beam shots begin lancing out that you realize that it's the two Gelgoogs, hanging on to the Val Varo like a giant wakeboard. "Clever bastards." You scowl.>Increase speed and take cover in the station.>Return fire and try to snipe the Gelgoogs off the Val Varo.>Other

>>32027901>Return fire and try to snipe the Gelgoogs off the Val Varo.Don't take cover. If we do that they can hit us with the plasma leaders and stun us all at once. Keep in the open and take out those Gelgoogs. Also, what are Gelgoogs doing with pink beam weaponry? Come on, Team Behemoth, you're supposed to use yellow if you're Zeon. Shameful display.
>>32027901>Increase speed and take cover in the station.I don't like our odds on sniping these guys.

>>32027901>Return fire and try to snipe the Gelgoogs off the Val Varo.
>>32028065Very fast mobile armor, lots of weapons, heavy armor. It's a nasty thing to fight. But it can't turn worth a damn and its best weapons will only work if we're bunched up or right in front of it. We can take it. Probably.
Rolled 14>>32028098Here we go!
>>32028065The Val Varo is basically a speedy tank. The megaparticle cannon hurts, it's claws can rip you in two, beams don't hurt it much thanks to anti-beam coating.
>>32028113>>32028117>>32028127Ehh, marginal success?
>gm jugglerwhat the fuck.no, seriously
>>32028090>>32028104>>32028119Thanks for the clarifications; Not as big as I was thinking and it looks to have the weaknesses I assumed it would. We just need to have Karen perform a haul breach and it should drop pretty quick.
>>32028145Best of three and the opponents rolled 3 and 4 to our 14. That's not marginal.
>>32028131>thanks to anti-beam coatingWhich we don't have.
>>32028176...I thought we replaced our Ball's ballastic cannon with beam rifles.
>>32028194Can't remember if we kept one of the cannons.
>>32028194It's in the pastebin. You should read it.
>>32028216We did. We're mounting both now. Two autocannons and a beam rifle per Ball. That's why they're called "Dakka Balls" on our character sheet.
>>32028231Which nobody seems to read.
>>32028231Which means our Balls are effectively useless for anything but blinding the Val Varo.>>32028176I do not get what's your point.
>>32028231Not so bad, then.Still need to get rid of those Gelgoogs so that the Overflag and Deathscythe can melee the MA.
>>32028127You boost as fast as you can, making a few erratic maneuvers here and there so you don't make yourself too easy a target. Apparently, it's enough, considering the Gelgoogs fail to even come close to hitting any of you. You take a quick look back to see the Val Varo zoom past, no doubt to set up for another high speed pass. "This is going to be tough. The Val Varo is way faster than any of your suits." You grumble. "It'll probably just keep circling us all day and take potshots at us until they get lucky.""Well, from the looks of it, it's circling in a somewhat predictable pattern." Karen says as her Overflag ducks behind cover as the Val Varo whips by again, its Gelgoog riders showering you with more inaccurate beam rifle fire. "Maybe we can try ambushing it.""Well, I got my beam rifle and my Balls, and Amy can put her scythe into rifle mode. If we concentrate our fire as it passes, we stand of chance of knocking out the Gelgoogs, or at least separating them from the VV." You say."Well, I do have a sort of crazy idea..." Amy says."Like?""Well, I can load a blank round into my gunscythe, and use it to launch either you or Karen at the big red lobster thing as it passes. It should give you a big enough speed boost to intercept it in flight.""That sounds crazy.""Yeah, but they wouldn't be expecting it, right?">We'll go with my plan.>We'll go with Amy's plan.>Other
Rolled 5>>32028265>>OtherBoth"I'll open fire and be the distraction.When they're looking at me, boost Karen over."
>>32028265>>32028286This we'll distract them, Amy uses the rifle to boost karen and slice tVV up
Rolled 9>>32028286This.If we're lucky, we knock one off with our gunfire.If not, Karen can close and slice shit up.
>>32028286This. Overflag gotta go faster!
>>32028286>>32028265This. Make sure we separate a bit that way we get a better chance of them not catching on what's going on.
>>32028265>OtherCombine them. We'll fly out and start laying down fire from multiple directions with our rifle and the Balls. Then Amy launches Karen and loads standard shells to help us lay down fire by sniping.
>>32028265See>>32028286We launch our Knifearm glorious leader to cleave the Mach 5 in twain. Plus she's the only one with anti-beam coating.
>>32028286Yeah, this seems like the best way to handle it. Especially if we can put some space between us and Karen & Amy.

Both girls affirm and jet off out of sight.Alright, Jack, it's time to step up. The Val Varo passes by a couple more times, its Gelgoogs showering random areas of the station with beam fire. However, you have to resist the urge to return fire. Your Balls quietly track the moving mobile armor as well, as if they were itching to open fire, too."Okay! We're ready to go!" Amy says."All right!" You grin as you raise your beam rifle and unlock your Balls' weapons. The next time the Val Varo circles around, you open fire with your beam rifle while your Balls unleash all their dakka.>roll 1d20

Rolled 15>>32028578It's usually been the first 3 linked rolls
>>32028553Unfortunately, the Val Varo is simply going too fast for you to draw an accurate bead on it, and you don't score any major hits. However, your balls do much better, scoring numerous direct hits on the giant mobile armor with their weapons. However, at this distance, most of their hits simply bounce off the Val Varo's armor, but it succeeds in forcing the Gelgoogs to hunker down, preventing them from shooting.Then there's a loud WHUMP as Amy's rifle fires, and you see the Obsidian Overflag jet out into space, arms outstretched forward like a professional diver."Come on Karen..."

>>32028676If he took my 17 we probably would have hit something ourselves. Since it was just our Balls, he probably took the 8.
Rolled 20>>32028700Gaia's an alright design. Underused and still prefer the Bucue.
>>32028634>Actually, that was sort of a screwup on my part. I sort of assumed it was correctly linked.Well, Karen's maneuver is partly successful. Her Overflag slams into one of the Gelgoogs, sending both her and Gelgoog spinning off into the space. The Gelgoog tries to bring its beam rifle into line, only to have the barrel sliced off, so it defaults to its heat hawk.Meanwhile, the Val Varo, still at full speed, can't decelerate or change direction to assist so it boosts to circle around the station again while Karen battles the Gelgoog. This was bad. Even if Karen did win, she'd be a sitting duck out there in front of the Val Varo. >Tell Karen to disengage while you and Amy provide cover fire. >Get ready to open fire on the Val Varo when it comes back around.>Tell Amy to launch you next.>Other

>>32028753>>Get ready to open fire on the Val Varo when it comes back around.
>>32028806Oh, right. That too. Although, we could probably get some nice point-blank beam shots into the MA.
>>32028753So do we get the 17 and do we hit anything?
Rolled 5>>32028828If we're boosted up, we might be able to nail the cockpit with a laser strike.
>>32028753>Get ready to open fire on the Val Varo when it comes back around.We'll draw its attention away. And the moment it opens its nosecone to fire the megaparticle cannon have Amy snipe it. Having the barrel shot off your fun while it's charging is never good for your mobile armor.
>>32028842What 17 are you referring to?
>>32028876The 17 we should have gotten but Merc assumed it wasn't linked
>>32028914Ah. Technically he assumed the 8 was linked, but that's not really the point.It's happened already, so no point trying to retcon it now. Plus, what exactly would we have accomplished? I'm pretty sure we were just trying to provide a distraction via suppressing fire, which our Balls did for us.

You see the familiar red shape blasting around, this time making a beeline straight for Karen. Your sensors begin shrieking warnings of energy buildup, and you can see the Val Varo's twin mega beam cannons charging. You're pretty sure not even Karen's anti-beam coated blades could parry something like that.You pull the trigger while your Balls and Amy add to the mix.>roll 1d20

>>32029184>Disable beam canons"Enjoy your big red space boogie-board"Ya it has more, but those are arguably its best offensive feature in my opinion.
>>32029121A storm of rifle, autocannon, and beam fire lances out at the Val Varo, and this time, the volley is punishing. Your Balls' autocannons and Amy's rifle manage to strike the Gelgoog trying to take cover, and knock it off the Mobile Armor. You take a deep breath and fire your own shot, and you see the pink beam lance straight through the Gelgoog's check, causing it to explode brilliantly.The storm of fire also causes the Val Varo pilot to panic and he fires off his beam cannons prematurely. Karen breaks off seconds before the spot where she was, and what was left of her opponent, are vaporized. The Val Varo boosts again out of sight. "Good shooting, the both of you!" Karen says proudly as she jets back."Good work taking out that Gelgoog." You say. "Now it's just the Val Varo left.""But... where did it go?" Karen wonders."Um... GUYS." Amy points outward.

>>32029637Right, but that's just the standard setup. We could mod them to have more hardpoints. I'm sure Holly knows how to put more hardpoints on a Ball.
Rolled 12>>32029656Or EXAM.Two systems built to counter newtypes.And I'd rather EXAM SYSTEM. STANDBY.
>>32029660I just have my doubts that Merc with let us add even more Hard points to them.
>>32029681>withThat should be will.
>>32029660Theoretically true, but you can only stuff so much crap on their tiny little frames before it just turns into excess weight. Holly would probably accuse us of Ball abuse.
>>32029656that was to stop it from going on a fucking rampage
I thought the goal was to stick to our passion and outfight them, not trying to find the "biggest dick" thing and beat them over teh head with it.
>>32029681>>32029703True. It probably wouldn't work. I admit it, I just want to bring in a For The Barrel design. We're basically Gunpla Hipsters, there's nothing that will get us more street cred than that.
Rolled 7, 6, 8 = 21>>32029476"Amy, launch me." You say, holstering your beam rifle and drawing your beam saber."W-what?" Amy blinks."You heard me. LAUNCH ME!" You say louder, positioning your GM in front of Amy's Deathscythe. "Um, okay..." Amy loads another blank round into her rifle and presses it against the back of your GM. Your Balls quickly reattach themselves to your back and there's a loud WHUMP as your launched towards the quickly incoming Val Varo. >roll 1d20

>>32029750WHAT!!! WITH ONLY ONE ROLL???capcha: anticipating onlytsel
>>32029775Was this out of a hundred?
So how much damage can a fast and heavy mobile suit do if they ram into an opponent?
>>32029806highest roll out of first three
>>32029784Only if one is A CHAR
>>32029737>>32029750Although, honestly I was expecting we'd launch and Shoot it Point-blank, but this should be pretty awesome.
>>32029814No. It was a d20
>>32029784It's not surprisingly deadly, it's ridiculously deadly. It's got a full-body beam shield, psychoframe, I-field, and a dozen different beam guns. And it's just the prototype. Be glad it never got finished.
>>32029775The Val Varo sees you approaching and deploys its giant lobster claws in an attempt to stop you. However, it misjudges the extra momentum Amy's rifle gave you shoot past its arms before they can stop you. Yelling an improvised battle cry, you shove your beam saber forward and stab the mobile armor directly through its front plating. The mobile armor then crashes directly into the station, jolting you as you try to keep a grip on your stuck beam saber. Your Balls then spin around on your shoulder mounts and start blasting away at the Val Varo point blank. This close, you can see the armor visibly begin to warp and deform. The mobile armor begins to rumble again as its engines start power up again. Meanwhile, Amy and Karen try to close in to melee distance to attack the Val Varo while it's still vulnerable. >Keep your grip on the Val Varo in case it blasts off.>Pull out your beam saber and try to disable its engines before it can take off again.>Other
So what are the odds these tree try and defect to our team after this bout of crazy?

Rolled 14, 19, 12 = 45>>32029864You figure that with your beam saber already stuck in the Val Varo, you might as well finish the job. You plant your feet on the Val Varo's hull and try to pull the beam saber along with you for maximum damage. However, the anti beam coating its providing some resistance to your attempts. >roll 1d20
>>32029951This too, there is NO 1/144 Val Varo, so that must have been scratch built.
Rolled 17>>32030023HERE WE GOOOOO!

Rolled 6>>32030046YOU ARE LUCKY THAT WE GOT THE FIRST 3 ROLLS OVER 15!
>>32030029>>32030037>>32030039Well at least it's not a critical failure. Karen's going to yell at us for not disabling the engines no doubt.
>>32030035There are a lot of units in Build Fighters that never actually got model kits in real life. Not all of them can be scratch builds I assume that in a world where Gunpla Battle is as popular as it is, many more machines got a 1/144 made of it.
>>32030053Now, for the real question:Is it strong enough? I figure this is a DC, not an opposed roll.
>>32030053The guy rolled a 19. More than likely we did jack shit to it.
>>32030061And so am I!
>>32030086>Feels us start to move>NOPE.avi>Guns it while flipping the bird
>>32030039You try as hard as you can, but you're only able to pull the beam saber a few feet before the mobile armor lurches again and lifts off from the station. Amy and Karen try to close in, but you see four large pods deploy from the Val Varo's underbelly. If you remember correctly, those were its plasma leaders, devices meant to emit a powerful energy field to disable mobile suits. If they touched down, they were sure to knock out Karen and Amy's Gunpla.>Trust Karen and Amy to handle it. Continue to try and damage the Val Varo.>Disengage and destroy the the plasma leaders before they can deploy.>Other

>>32030203Only the top counts if they don't all succeed.
>>32030203None of our rolls beat his highest. We failed the rolled but not crt fail. Go read the pastebin.
>>32030121send out the balls to blast the leads while we hack away at this overgrown lobster!
>>32030121GO MY BALLS!!!
>>32030203I think it's more that it gets best of three just like we do. The Val Varo is sort of a boss, so it's on our level rules-wise.
>>32030121>Disengage and destroy the the plasma leaders before they can deploy.As much as I'd like to continue to RIP AND TEAR IT'S HUGE GUTS, I'd be so much easier of Karen did it instead.On a related note, we should pillage a larger angrier beam saber at some point in the future.

>>32030319True. But in this case the anon has a point. It wouldn't be a bad idea to get us a slightly stronger melee weapon if possible.

Rolled 9, 14, 18 = 41>>32030426Your shot is dead on, spearing through one of the plasma leaders and causing it to explode. Unfortunately, your Balls and Amy fail to score any solid hits, while Karen slashes the one in front of her in half and continues upward towards the Val Varo, which is already trying to accelerate away. That still leaves two plasma leaders, which is still enough to hit you and Amy if you don't move RIGHT NOW.>roll 1d20

>>32030487You see Amy jet away in time, and you try to engage your boosters as well, but nothing happens. You glance at your status screen.ERROR. ENGINE FAILED TO START. REBOOTING SYSTEM.Shit.You see the plasma leaders powering up and you wince. There's no way you can avoid them.Suddenly, your view shakes rapidly and your suit starts spinning in space. Confused you glance at your screen and realize what happened. Your two Balls rammed your GM to knock it clear of the plasma leaders. You see both Balls give you one last, almost wistful look before the leaders activate. The Balls shudder as high voltage electricity courses through them. Their eye optics flicker and go dead, and both machines float lifelessly in space. "Jack! JACK!" You're shaken back into to reality when Amy's Deathscythe comes up right next to you. "Are you all right?" She asks."Y-yeah." You nod. You check your status screen again and see that your boosters are now working correctly again. "Listen. Karen's stuck on the big lobster thing, but I'm not sure if she can handle it herself." Amy says, reloading her rifle. "The lobster thingie still hasn't reached full speed yet, so there's still a chance to catch up to it. Are you ready?""Yeah." You nod."Good." Amy's rifle fires and your GM is sent flying through space again. You hit your boosters at full power and you see the red speck in the distance grow larger and larger. You can barely make out the Overflag, it's sword arms stuck into the Val Varo's back. The mobile armor meanwhile is bucking and jinking in an effort to shake her off.

>>32030730>Try to snipe the Val Varo from a distance.Aim for the boosters. It's a long shot, but going for the claw has some risk of friendly fire.Once it's sufficiently slowed down and we catch up with it, dismember the claw.

>>32030828We aim vaguely in the direction of its boosters?

I honestly think we would have won the tournament easily if he went Full Tryhard when constructing his suit because he was just that fucking skilled, good thing he was too bro for that.I think the Meijin also didn't have any particle hax (unless the Trans Am on the Exia Amazing counts), he just had the most bleeding edge suits imaginable and the skills to pay the bills.Then again we'll probably never reach that level where we can just casually solo anything through raw badassery, because not even the protagonists ever got gud enough to not rely on particle hax to stand up to guys like that, so in practice you're correct I guess.

>>32031351What's this? An NPC that DOES something?
>>32031341That and we've subverted the usual MC development flow: we didn't start with a beginner gundam unlike hte others.And we don't know if similar things would be involved in this quest or not.
>>32031292In Gundam, a suit being a command unit usually just means it has better sensors and thrusters than the normal version. C3I tends to get neglected with mobile suits. Probably because it's not as impressive to look at. As I recall, some of the suits in X and Turn A had it, though.
>>32031289>>32031303Well alright then. I think we're gonna be able to S-rank the tournament in a single weekend.Boss as fuck.Related news, I went ahead and ordered a X88S Gaia Gundam off of amazon. I paid a whole 3 dollars extra to get expedited shipping. Now it might even get here before Wednesday!
>>32031388Good, good. Join us at /m/ or /toy/ Gunpla/Plamo general.
>>32031351You stab your beam saber right into one of the Val Varo's beam cannon barrels, while Karen drives both her arm blades into where the reactor presumably be. The Val Varo shudders and crackles with energy, cuing the both of you to take off.Seconds later, the Val Varo explodes into a cloud of dust.BATTLE ENDED"Team Obsidian is the winner!" The referee announces. There's a lot of cheering, and you turn to see that your battle had attracted quite a crowd. You were so engrossed in the battle you didn't even notice.You then recover your Gunpla and set it back in the case. You look around for your opponents to give your regards for a good game, but you realize their gone, as well as their broken Gunpla."Did they leave already?" You ask."Yes they did. Without so much as a goodbye or good game." Karen shakes her head."That's ruuuude." Amy frowns. "It was a pretty fun battle, too.""I guess they didn't think so." You say sadly.Well, you have thirty minutes until your next battle, and fortunately enough, none of your Gunpla are really damaged.>Go check on Lucina's team.>Go check on Holly.>Wander the tournament.>Other

>>32031517Honestly the ground type wasn't that interesting to me. I almost grabbed it though since it was so cheap, then I saw the Thunderbolt and fell in love.I think I have a shield fetish.
>>32031546>shield fetish.I can get behind that.
>>32031518Mobile Armors are FUN.And I somehow doubt they're actually competitive, because if it runs into, say, any of the actual Gundams from something like 00 where they're all packing GOFAST SUPERMODE it'll get eviscerated due to being 2huge and having exploitable blindspots.
Rolled 11>>32031546Ground Type shields are used as melee weaponsLearn to love the ground type shield
>>32031602True. Supermodes are the true bullshit, right?
>>32031546Ah, a fellow shield admirer. May I suggest you also take a look at the Gundam Hazel? That thing is practically made of shields. All of which have either built-in rockets or built-in beam guns. It's beautiful. Seriously, it's a shame the Advance of Zeta designs are stuck in a light novel. They deserve their own entire series.
>>32031496Bro, go to the /m/ or/and /yot/ Gunpla/Plamo general. We will help tou and give some tips and tricks about kits.>good solid kits. 10/10 would Gunpla Battle With.
>>32031577My original idea was to get the Gouf Custom, the arm pack and another kit with some shields so I could have a writhing array of barely effective physical shields then I saw the Thundrbolt which already had that going for it.The Thunderbolt is also a more complicated build apparently so I wanted a kit that would give me a little challenge that I could really look forward to once I work my way up to it.>>32031625Very nice. Love the shield design. Shame they don't seem mountable on anything other than the arms from the few small things I've read on the HG kit thus far.>>32031661Thanks bro; I'll hit up /m/ when they come in. I'm still pretty green on Gundam; but my thirst for building robots has finally hit a boiling point again. And it feels good.>>32031618I would gladly buy a pack of Ground Type shields if they sold them and see if I could work a boxer type theme on a future Gunpla.
>>32031717In the fiction the Hazel can attach shields to almost any part of its body, including special back and shoulder mounted sub-arms. Some of its variant forms involve putting them on its legs, even. I don't know if the model kit can do that, though. It would be hard to make a model as customizable as the Hazel is supposed to be.
>>32031717Look for Striker if you are into "Combat" ShieldsAnd you know that Customization is THE KEY in Gunpla. Look for Gunpla markers and some tools (sandpaper, nippers etc.)
>>32031756Gotta scratch build the shit out of then, I guess.God speed there, I can barely handle regular modeling.
>>32031776What gives you the most problems?Nubs?
Newfag here and I'm just wondering, What the fuck is G-Savior?
>>32031770>And you know that Customization is THE KEY in GunplaNaturally. The customization and ease of assembly is what drew me back into gunpla. The last model I had was an old old model I got from epcot as a kid and built with my dad back when you had to glue things. Was some time of treaded transport Zaku.As for building supplies I still have most of my 40K modeling tools, although I need a new set of clippers I'll grab once the kits come in.also:PAGE 8 WARNING

>>32031811Painting, really, the actual plastic part I can deal with since I've inherited two generations of engineer's autism.Colored or coated plastic annoys the shit out of me, though, since they never file/sand down to the original color due to material fatigue.
>>32031813A notoriously bad live-action Gundam movie. We prefer to pretend it doesn't exist. The acting is just so very bad. The videogame based on it is actually pretty good, though.
>>32031470"Hey, let's go see how the others are doing." You say. The three of you head over the the next table over, where you see Lucina's team is still battling. Moving closer, you see that their battling against an AGE-themed team running the Gundams AGE-1, AGE-2, and AGE-3. The AGE-1 running in its Titus mode, and squaring off against the Super Maxter. The AGE-2 was in Double Bullet mode and paired off with the Exia Cuirassier while the AGE-3 Fortress mode was up against the Guntank TUSKER. They seemed to be fighting in a forest field.The Super Maxter and Titus were going off like a classic boxing match, both suits wailing on each other with furiously fast and powerful punches. The Titus activates its beam lariat and tries to take out the Maxter, but Mac is quick enough and ducks under it, and you see him prepping for his favorite move and realize the fight's over. The Super Maxter initiates the Dempsey Roll and just repeatedly pounds away at the Titus' head, continually forcing it back. Finally, one final punch sends the Titus' head flying off in the air.(cont)
>>32031869Meanwhile, the Fortress begins unloading powerful beam blasts at the TUSKER. The TUSKER folds up into its Breacher mode and barrels forward, its MLRS pods and cannons roaring in response. Rockets and shells land all over the Fortress, knocking it around and spoiling its aim before the TUSKER slams into it, literally grinding it under its treads. Jake then backs off, switches back to Siege mode, and blasts the downed Fortress point blank with its twin cannons, sending dirt and Gunpla parts flying everywhere.Finally, the AGE-2 and the Exia were in furious close combat, GN Blade clashing against beam saber. The AGE-2 tries to press its dual wielding advantage, but Lucina is doing a good job parrying all his attacks with her one blade. You knew she was just biding her time for an opening, and she sees it when the AGE-2 overextends just a bit. She raises her shield, which blocks the AGE-2's incoming attacks for a brief second, but it's all she needs. A flick of the wrist severs the AGE-2's arms at the elbows, and another flick sends two halves of a Gundam falling to the ground.BATTLE ENDED"Oh boy, it looks like we're going to be fighting each other in the finals." You sigh."I know, isn't it exciting?" Amy grins.>Go congratulate Lucina and her team.>Go check on Holly. >Wander the tournament.>Other

>>32031923It's going to be bad, yo.The only unknown is if it's going to be a thirty second or thirty minute match. Either way, 3 tiny gundams are going to look like they just came off their sprues.

Rolled 20So Lucina V Karen.Who Wins?This is in no way a representation of waifu wars.Or is it.
>>32031960Let's hope that the Tusker doesn't crit hit us at point blank like just what happened. Our upper half will be missing forever...
>>32031991It'll be a nice souvenir for a lucky fan.
>>32031989But I want to have a shield war with Lucina
>>32031991He'll hit us so hard that our torso will fly across the venue into Holly's arena and crush her opponent.
>>32031991Well...we'll have a chance to get an entirely new mobile weapon kit.So that could be neat.
>>32031831>tredsthe HG line could really use some
>>32031886>>Go congratulate Lucina and her team.>>Go check on Holly.
So do both of our balls have to have the same equipment loadout or could we have each one specialized in different things (i.e. one becomes a spider droid that sets up mines, or the other having beam rotors and grappling hooks)?
>>32031989Lucina was my choice in VMQ2 and I don't see a reason to change that yet.
>>32031989Lucina would win
>>32031813I'm getting a headache just remembering that THING.
>>32031989Charlotte would trounce them both in Gunpla battle and love.
>>32032026>He'll hit us so hard that our torso will fly across the venue... I completely forgot that ring-outs are a thing in Gunpla battle.
What if we evolved the Juggler into a Macross style GM/Ball Variable Fighter with a shit-ton of thrusters?
>>32031886"Hey, good job on that win there, Lucina." You grin as you walk forward. "Looks like you're be facing us in the final round.""Well, I suppose it was to be expected." Lucina shrugs and smiles. "Good to know you've been doing well. How did your last battle go?""Oh, we fought a Val Varo and stabbed it to death.""What's a Val Varo?" Lucina frowns.Oh, right. This was Lucina you were talking to."Basically a giant flying lobster that's very fast and very hard to kill.""Ah, well good to know you beat it." Lucina nods."HOLY SHIT did you say Val Varo?" Mac butts in. "What kind of douche would bring a Mobile Armor?""People from our school, apparently." You grumble. "Anyways, we were planning on doing a final checkup on our Gunpla before the next match. Wanna join us?" Mac asks.>Sure.>Actually, I want to go check on Holly.>Nah, I'm gonna wander around for a bit.>Other
Our best matchup against Lucina would either be ourselves or Karen (Amy would just get eaten alive unless she got super lucky), and while Karen is probably the stronger choice in theory, her suit loses in fluff to the Exia meaning she's got bad mojo. Then again Lucina is all about the BATORU and doesn't know the fluff so maybe the mojo won't apply.
>>32032143>>Nah, I'm gonna wander around for a bit.
>>32031989Karen by a bit. Regardless though, Amy is love. Amy is Life.I am very sorry I called her autistic when she was introduced.

>>32032143This since the image of GM fighting a lobster is a little sad
>>32032182Don't underestimate the mojo anon. Trying to fight a suit that beats your suit in the fluff is total bad luck.
>>32032143>>32032207>>32032178Sorry, I meant to support this

Mac waves as he departs.You split off from the rest of the group and head back to the 1v1 section. There you see Holly happily sitting on a bench, sucking on a juice carton."From the look on your face, I assume you you haven't been knocked out yet." You grin."Nope!" Holly says cheerfully. "I actually made it to the quarterfinals!""Wow, that's impressive." You whistle. "I guess nobody really knows how to fight Balls." Holly shrugs as she reaches into her bag and takes out some Oreos. She holds one out for you but you politely refuse. "Really now?""Yeah, I mean, Balls are pretty fast, and the beam weapons are a big equalizer. You just need to score a solid hit with those and you've pretty much won.""Well, that's true." You nod. "You just waiting for your next match?'"Yeah." Holly nods. "It'll start in like, ten minutes.">Hang around with Holly a bit more.>Go check out other fights.>Other
>>32032301I would aggressively put off watching any gundam shows.I've seen GBF (...does GBF exist in GBF continuity? As some sort of meta(satirical?) documentary about the competitors in the GBWC, maybe) and I'm cool with that.Just look at box art until something looks balling out of control.

>>32032436I'm suggesting that forcing people to watch stuff they're not that interested in is kind of dicky, using myself for the comparison.She's in it to fight toy robots and stuff, just accept that and be cool.gunpla battling isn't about that anyways, it's about bros doing bro stuff.
>>32032350I almost wanna have us build a Gundam kit of some kind, and literally make it the most shenanigans thing possible. Like using Mercurius shield thingies to CC people and then using the Gold Frame Astray AMATU virus drain things to screw with them. Go full shenanigans
>>32032489Okay look you people don't need to be doing this.People can see in the fucking corner now. Shit gets annoying.
>>32032436What he's asking, in this universe we are in, does the Gundam Series: "Gundam Build Fighters" exist.
>>32032492Then we'll just start her on the batoru heavy stuff, jesus. Just because she hasn't watched Gundam in the past doesn't mean she won't like it, and you can't honestly say it won't enrich her Gunpla experience to be able to identify suits as something other than MORE CORPSES FOR THE PILE.
>>32032492Well, if Lucina is only interested in the combat aspect, maybe she can just watch the battle sequence?If she inquires further on the story, she's free to watch the rest.
>>32032492She said she's fine watching the shows with us. She is interested but If i recall, she's just busy.Also what should we use our cash to upgrade our gunpla and balls.I want the heat knife and beam spear
>>32032503>Total kit cost>$5000>Blown the fuck up in 12 seconds by club douche>go back to our scrappy little juggler>win rematchIt's all about "heart" and "friendship" and "courage" and shit. The second you try and level the playing field you lose. Do you even sports films?

>>32032553You can have a competitive model AND have heart, yo.Sports dramas start with scrappy underdog going through a training montage and emerging as LEVEL MAXIMUM hardasses.
>>32032553Alternatively we could start putting funnels on our balls. We be funneling our funnels. So we can funnel while we funnel.If we do go Juggler Gundam Route we should totally base it off the Astray Blue Frame Second R because that thing is baller as hell and totally underrated

>>32032353Well, you still got time. Might as well hang around to see her next battle. "So I guess you're all set then?" You ask "Yeah, my Super Ball is all fixed up and everything!" Holly nods. "I just can't wait to start the next fight!" "Ha, looks like you're really getting into this, Holly." You chuckle, ruffling your sister's hair. "You thinking of becoming a pro battler?""It's crossed my mind." Holly nods. "HOLLY FOULKE, PLEASE REPORT TO TABLE FOUR.""Oh, that's for me!" Holly gasps. "Come on!"You follow Holly over to where she's supposed to fight next. You arrive at the table, and see that her opponent has already arrived. Seemed to be some kid wearing a bright red, hooded jacket. He had the hood up, so you couldn't get a clear look at his face. Kinda sketchy, actually."He looks kinda sketchy..." Holly frowns."Don't worry. Not like he can do anything to you here." You assure her. "All right, place your GP Bases and Gunpla." The referee says.Holly excitedly places her Super Ball on the field. Her opponent glances at it and seems to hesitate a bit. You then see Holly's opponent reach down to his bag and pull out a red Zaku.Wait, haven't you seen that Zaku before...?>And that's it for tonight! Next thread is next week. Don't forget Cyberpunk Idols and Saturday and I'm running a SW89-based oneshot on Sunday! Don't miss them!
>>32032622But we can use the Ball M kit and attach funnel in the mine dispensors
>>32032607Fucking Genius. I still think shenaniganing the Gunpla Club to death would be the most satisfying thing in the world. Because nothing really pisses tryhards off more than when you use what they think is pure jank to fuck with their game plan and make them helpless and end them.

Rolled 20>>32032758Well. Everyone expects her to be using a Kampfer.This is just the zaku she used when she was young. Why would anyone recognise her?
>>32032758Well, there's a reason why she's running a Zaku instead of the Kampfer...
>>32032727those two (as well as Lucina) have only been in VMQ2 before now. The true recurring character is Tarin.
>>32032672Wait a minute I'm getting something!Remember how the 00 had it's GN drives mounted on it's shoulders?And now think about where the Balls on a Juggler mount.So now we take the 00 chassis, alter the shoulders into Ball mounts, and swap in enough GM parts that it has a redundant power system independent of the GN drives. Alternatively we could start with a GM chassis and build it up rather than building the 00 down, whichever is easier.Either way, we end up with the GN JUGGLER 00.
>>32032758Sometimes you just wanna roflstomp some scrubs. See: Absolutly any fighting game are starcraft lobby ever that has the name "newbies only" or some variation thereof.
>>32032758Dude, she's here to have fun.Not kick everyone's ass.
>>32032767I like the idea of using a head as a ball. Gotta get them face vulcans do.Maybe stick in some sort of totally gnarly beam weapon behind some sunglasses like Cyclops.
>>32032793She's here to have a good time. There's a reason the MtG judges invented EDH.
>>32032767I know this is from Macross Zero, but we should have our GM pull this off with a Ball as the jet form.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXNa88lRh4E
>>32032800>Dem orange juicer puldrons>>32032806What if... what if we use a ball as OUR head? Think of all the hardpoints!
Rolled 4>>32032806This isn't a head ball.This is a full sized ball with a large armour plate in the shape of a gundam face over the front.
>>32032797Appearances made in CyberIdols.>>32032803De la Hoya would probably have fun punching out high schoolers. That doesn't make it fair...
>>32032800Dude, come on NZ-666 Kshatriya! With Balls mounted on the Bulges on the wings? Easily done. Then we run the Mercurius shield bits on the wings! It's shenanigans the suit. Plus if we keep the detection gear in the Balls it gives us an ungodly level of battlefield control shenanigans!
>>32032793True, though I wonder if she improved on it.We turn a basic GM into a high spec juggler, making every fight 3 vs 1,
>>32032827well then you're basically back to the image of the ball with arms.Unless there's a very tiny ball we can use as a head, and use some plasticard and mad modeling skills to make look like a gundam/GM head. That'd be some seriously next fucking level kitbashing that I would stand and clap for.
>>32032793I wonder if she knew we were going to be here and thought she would get to batoru us
Rolled 13>>32032874Nah. Shes probably just here to play, holding herself back while she has some fun.
>>32032827>I have expanded the hitbox on my head to be fuckhuge, please snipe my face.Nah.>>32032793And we'll have to wait a week to find out. FFFFFF-
>>32032885He's a tease. I think that's a high crime in most middle eastern countries.
Why don't we give the Balls Kshatriya wings then load those up with the 1/700 scale balls, then have those attach onto Kshatriya wings that we mount on the back of the GM?
>>32032965I don't think tat would work.
Just gonna go on record and say that I'm against shoehorning in any more AI-controlled autonomous subsystems on top of what we've already got, both because filling the battlefield with drones has been shown to be an extremely unsound tactic against anyone who's legitimately good unless you take them completely off guard (which will work exactly once after we git gud enough for opponents to start watching film on us), and because having too many little AI controlled bastards running around doing the work for us is very much NOT batoru tanoshii.
>>32033175Even if I understood that yabba dabba doo speak at the end look at it like this: We have two balls on our GM currently. We can still use them for a massive firepower increase, and keep them attached to us; or we can drop them off and get a decent speed boost and some automated fire support. The enemy will still have to deal with them in some capacity.Having drones is rarely a disadvantage, however you're correct in assuming we may get to the min-max faglord tier where you have to go all into mobility and firepower to survive longer than a tenth of a second.Our current juggler theme should serve us pretty well in team and solo fights until we at least start hitting lower-tier high level fights.
>>32033175I'll go on record saying that's great cupcake. But this about what we find fun. If we find drone spam fun. Guess what? We drone spam.
>>32033175>>32033215>>32033225I'm sure the /m/ and /tg/ wizards can cook up some bullshit hax if it's absolutely needed when we get to the pro level.
>>32033225But I don't find drone spam fun. Also full spam goes against our established character who is very much into doing things up-close and personal when the chance arises."Fun" does not automatically entail full faglord gimmick spamming, and dronespam in Gundam is traditionally used by shitheads who are just out to rape everything as efficiently and impersonally as possible, which is great if you're out to win a war but not so much if you intend to actually have fun with your fights.
>>32033245Oh I'm sure.But the only thing I think of right now; Carrier has arrived.>>32033270>But I don't find drone spam fun.That's great cupcake.>goes against our established character who is very much into doing things up-close and personal when the chance arises.He's shown to do whatever is called upon at the time. Be it range or melee. He's an all rounder.
>>32033301>He's an all rounderNot to mention he's trying to wrangle team leader away from Karen pretty hard.Mid range jack of all trades is a good fit for a battlefield commander which we seem to be shaping up into.I'd be surprised if we don't go full support unit at some point during the quest.
>>32033301I still don't see what's so "fun" about having our battles decided by autopilot, but if that's your thing Gundam might not be for you.
>>32033323>I'd be surprised if we don't go full support unit at some point during the quest.I hope we do. C3 and Drones. I would love that.Not only do we have a way to fight but also ways to improve our teammates.
>>32033270Full spam isnt a good thing of course.I see ourselves adding at most one or two more pod, maximum. That'll allow us to use some as dedicated support plateforms, ECM, defence, what not.The Balls themselves do not detract from our aggressive combat style. Indeed, we bring the pods into battle and then immediately deploy them, allowing us offensive long ranged firepower as we close with the enemy.
>>32033330>I still don't see what's so "fun" about having our battles decided by autopilotThat's great different opinions . Welcome to life.>but if that's your thing Gundam might not be for you.Oh no, I like Gundam, but it doesn't mean I have to play by the shows rules like you seem to want.That's what beautiful about quest. You can tell settings rules to go fuck itself and forge your on path with in it.
>>32033341We are Cool Guy.Not some looser using Henchmen Balls to do the Dirty Job.Our Dear Little sister would hate us for that.Those 2 Balls are our BALLS.. I wanted to say BROS, but you get what I wanted to say, right?>And you can't spell Beam/Funnel Spam withou SPAM. So NOPE.
>>32033393From other players perspectives we are the equivalent of an engneer with two gunslingers; basically we're mecha hitler.I honestly enjoy this though since it's different than how /tg/ usually plays characters.
>>32033393>We've delibrately kicked our ball towards our team leader in 1 v 1 as a distraction>We send them ahead to trigger a trident-to-the-head-trap>Our balls do 'look out, si- ARRGH' for us in the last fightOk.
>>32033420>We've delibrately kicked our ball towards our team leader in 1 v 1 as a distractionworth it>We send them ahead to trigger a trident-to-the-head-trapdouble worth it>Our balls do 'look out, si- ARRGH' for us in the last fightmanly as fuck.
>>32033420>>32033419Fffff... you are right.>And who the hell keeps kicking Balls in the Balls? Oh yeah Zaku 2 from MGS...
>>32033442>Completely showcasing our affinity as a big bad.I'm actually completely ok with this.
>>32033453And it's fun!Don't forget that.
>>32033175>git gud enough for opponents to start watching film on usWell since it's a Bandai sponsored event it's probably on local access cable at the least. Maybe streaming.Which brings me to another point...>>32033447We must be super boring to watch. While it's been fun playing, think about the matches thus far: mexibro sandbush; divided and one shotted more or less. Done in under 4 minutes and the most recent one where we just took potshots at GOES FAST boogie boarders until we threw a wrench in their plans and beat face which was at best low on the highlight reel because we meleed an armor to death. This will most likely be played to yakkity sax.Most of it is our opponents laming out, but still.
>>32033420>That feel when we're at home building a hobby kit one night and come to this realization
>>32033644>We must be super boring to watch. This seems to disagree with you and imagine even more people probably enjoy because it's not something they see all too often.>There's a lot of cheering, and you turn to see that your battle had attracted quite a crowd. You were so engrossed in the battle you didn't even notice.
>>32033682The clutch stuff was mostly near the end, Until then the match was more or less a none-entity until we rolled our first 20.
>>32033703>"An MA? Meh this match will be over quick. I'll go check out that ball gi- waaaaait a minute... the hell did I just see?"
>>32033703You're saying that having Deathscythe launch Overflag was boring? Or that great ambush (which by the way was the first 20 wasn't at the end of the match, which also doesn't mean a crt in this quest, so a 20 doesn't mean nearly as much as it would in others) we had after that?
