You hear Lucina's voice speak softly to you. "Time to wake up.""I don't wanna." You grumble. Even with your eyes shut, you can still feel the warmth of the sun bearing down on you."It's already 1:00 in the afternoon." Lucina sighs. "You can't stay in bed forever.""Just five more minutes.""You want me to call my mom up?""Okay, okay! I'm awake!" You say, snapping your eyes open and immediately regretting it. By some stroke of misfortune, the bright afternoon sun happened to be shining directly into your face."AAAUUUGGGH!!"About twenty minutes later, you were in Lucina's kitchen eating breakfast... or lunch... or whatever people who woke up late called their first meal. Lucina's mom helpfully prepared sandwiches for the two of you. For somebody so terrifying, she was incredibly helpful."So, Jack, do you have any plans for today?" Lucina asks."Not really, why?" You shrug."Just asking.">Watch more Gundam.>Stop by the hobby shop.>Go hang out with someone else. (specify)>Other
>>32468724>>Go hang out with someone else. (Lucina)>Stop by the hobby shop.Help her build that thing she mentioned earlier or last night. Also upgrades for ourselves
>>32468724>Watch more Gundam.Chill.
>>32468724>Go hang out with someone else. (Lucina)Help her build the transam system
>>32468724>>Stop by the hobby shop.Go hang by the hobby shop.Sorta wanna call char to come out too.
>>32468724>>Stop by the hobby shop.>>Call Char to come out to play
>>32468724>Go hang out with someone else. (Lucina)>Stop by the hobby shop.I wan to upgrade our GM but we did say we can help Lucina with the Trans-Am system
>>32468724"You know, we should head out to the hobby shop." You say. "We can use our prize winnings to upgrade our gunpla. Might even get a fight in or two.""And you know, fix our gunpla. They're still kinda wrecked from our last battle.""You're right." You sigh, suddenly remembering. Dear lord it was going to be a lot of work, the state your GM Juggler was in. "You know, I should invite Charlotte, too.""Sure. We could always use some extra help." Lucina nods.You take out your cell phone and dial in Charlotte's number. The phone rings a couple times before you hear somebody pick up."Jack?" You hear her voice."Hey, Charlotte, I was heading over to our local hobby shop today and I was wondering if you wanted to come down to hang out with us for a bit." You say."Huh... sure, I guess I can. I don't do much on Sundays, anyways. I'll meet you there?""Yeah, sure. You do remember where it is, right?""Uh....""I'll text you the address." You laugh.After finishing up lunch and cleaning up, both you and Lucina head out for the hobby shop. The walk there is relatively quiet, besides a few times where Lucina asks you a few things about Gundam 00 that bugged her, like what the hell was the the point of the Thrones and why Alejandro Corner had such a stupid name. Soon enough, you reach the store. Mason's busy with a customer, but he gives a you friendly nod to acknowledge your entrance. However, it doesn't seem like Charlotte has arrived just yet.>Go check out the catalog. >Start on repairing your gunpla.>Wait for Charlotte to arrive.>Other
>>32468724>Stop by the hobby shop.Let's get building. We can get Lucina parts for the Trans-Am (I imagine it would consist of fiberoptics and LEDs, mostly. Maybe a tiny little model of an actual Trans-Am engine, just for the pun) and we can pick up some parts to upgrade the Juggler with. I could go for some ECM, personally.
>>32469198>>Go check out the catalog.SHOPPING
>>32469198>Start on repairing your gunpla.Repairs come first. We'll save the upgrades until after Charlotte shows up so we can all work together and have fun as friends.
>>32469198>>Go check out the catalog.Let's check out what they have before we rebuild so we can add them on as we repair it
>>32469198>>Go check out the catalog.
>>32469198>Start on repairing your gunpla.Should really fix our shit first before buying stuff.
>>32469305but we're going to upgrade our stuff anyway, we can buy the parts for our upgrades now, get rid of the parts we don't need and damage and replace it with the new parts
Time to batter down the hatches.I hate shopping with /tg/
>>32469353What are you talking about, it is a riveting discussion about the various aspects of war gear in a civilized manner befitting of gentlemen.
>>32469198You head over to the catalog and start flipping through the pages, looking at the sort of stuff you can buy. You notice there's a few new items in too that you could use.You currently have 2500 points you could spend, thanks to your tournament win."You know, if you need anything more expensive, I could give you my points." Lucina says.>Thanks, I'll keep that I mind.>Nah, I could never take your money like that.>Other
>>32469566>>Nah, I could never take your money like that.We're doing upgrades. It feels wrong to take it from her
>>32469566>Nah, I could never take your money like that.Besides I doubt that Trans-Am. Hell we might end up having to pitch in for it.
>>32469566>>Nah, I could never take your money like that.Even though we're a team, she earned it, it is her's to keep.
>>32469198>>Start on repairing your gunpla.We can wait for Char to show up so she can recommend some parts, maybe
>>32469566>>Nah, I could never take your money like that.Flick her forehead."You earned those points fair and square, I'm not going to take it away from you like that."
>>32469596>Besides I doubt that Trans-Am is cheapWords, how do they work.
>>32469566>Nah, I could never take your money like that.She needs those too anyway
>>32469566>Nah, I could never take your money like that.She'll need it for the Trans-Am.
>>32469566>Nah, I could never take your money like that.Lucina, you need that. For swords. You said it yourself (if I'm remembering correctly), your Exia needs more swords.
>>32469566"No." You flick Lucina in the forehead. "You earned those points fair and square. I'm not going to take them away from you like that.""Mmmmm, I was just offering." Lucina mumbles, rubbing her forehead.You return your attention to the catalog.http://pastebin.com/NB2u7hUQ>You have 2500 credits. Do you make any purchases?

>>32470055Ugh, I really wish the pastebin said what hardpoints are in use. (Or I'm just blind)
>>32470083So...have you found a reason to fight....Buddy?
>>32469828>>32470040This, no optional stuff so we can save for the Nemo kit but we can upgrade for most of our parts>>32470041No, they don't take up hardpoints
>>32470098It's not.http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/31719178/#31725171>NOTE: All Gunpla come with a certain number of equipment "slots" or hardpoints they can store gear on. >For humanoid Gunpla, you can hold one weapon or shield in each arm. You also get one close combat weapon for free. You have two hardpoints on the shoulders, and one hardpoint on the back. You also have a hardpoint in the interior of the torso. Some items will not take up hardpoints. These will be explicitly stated.>You can take additional hardpoint equipment equal to your Gunpla's Strength rating before it begins to affect your Agility. However, please note that equipment still must be physically capable of fitting onto your Gunpla.The balls take up the shoulder hardpoints, I think.
>>32470040why laser comms for our balls. We don't need them on it.>>32469996This
>>32470117>No, they don't take up hardpointsAll the stuff that doesn't take hard points state they don't everything else does; >>32470149
>>32469828>>32470040I support this, give our Dakaka Balls more Dakka and speed, while giving our gm better protection and comms, Melee weapons are okay I guess.
>>32470110>>32470083Next thing, we start using our dad's catchphrase.Maybe we got our paint scheme from an old photo of dad's F-15 that he flew along with his buddy?
>>32470181I was referring to thisCountermeasure Suite - 100: When in danger, the countermeasure suite can be activated, which deploys a combination of flares, smoke, sensor chaff, and anti-beam chaff. Can only be used twice in a battle. Does not take up a hardpoint.Laser Comm - 100: Allows the Gunpla to communicate with similarly equipped units more efficiently. Immune to electronic jamming, but requires line of sight. Does not take up a hardpoint.Giving them to our Gm and balls increase survivability while our balls can attack the enemy more
>>32469828Merc are there any downsides to the rocket boosters?Are they these things?
>>32470239And your refereeing to something I wasn't even talking about. Congrats on reading.
>>32470110>>32470219So, Delta Plus, ReZel, Zeta or Braves?
>>32470173Mostly because they don't need a hard point and if we're doing more team battles it will be more efficient to have them on if the enemy can jam or we are separated.I think communication is key for team battles, but we can take it out later if you don't think so.
>>32470270>referringFuck auto correct. One of these days it will be the end of me.
>>32470040Can we drop the rocket boosters?Those are space type equipment.
>>32470040>>32470321I'm going to agree with this.And can the balls even use Panzerfausts?
>>32470321>Rocket Booster - 300: Adds an additional booster pack, increasing a Gunpla's speed. it doesn't say that though.
>>32470312It's just its meant for player to player communication.I just think putting something like that on the balls is a little useless.
>>32470290I guess the Morgan resembles the Delta Plus more than the Zeta visually, so we could go with that.
>>32470343These are rocket boosters: >>32470245
>>32470342We can make a mount for it. >>32470348We can just install one then. save 200 BP off of the deal
Also we should not be spending everything.We need the points to repair our unit as well.
>>32470382>We can make a mount for it.Would that defeat the idea of not needing a hardpoint if we have to build a hard point for them?
>>32470403Oh wait, sorry was thinking of something else but we can attach it from the side or bottom of the ball, like that federation ball from IGLOO.>>32470370But their is no reference or penalty with the rocket boosters being only space weapons
>>32470040Okay, so this list seems to have the most consensus.Rocket Booster - 300X3 (900)For our GM, and Balls.Chobham Shield - 100 (GM)Panzerfaust - 50X6 (300)For our BallsLaser Comm - 100X3 (300)For our Gm and BallsCountermeasure Suite - 100X3 (300)For our Gm and Ballstotal= 1900Is this acceptable? >Y>N
>>32470463How big are this boosters?And do the balls gain anything for have the Laser Coms?
>>32469828>>32470040This but remove the two laser comms and leave one for the GM
>>32470463Sounds good to me. Though at some point I think we'll have to stop calling them Balls. With all the things we're putting on them I don't think they have a very spherical shape anymore. More ovoid, now.
>>32470463>>32470479Also can the balls use Panzerfausts?
>>32470463>>YBut only 1 Laser Comm for our GM.
>>32470448Theres another reason as well.We have six hardpoints, 1 gun, 1 shield, 2 balls, 1 radar.We have one left.The rocket will take up our last hardpoint and we'll have no other capability. I think the last should be taken by a gun or by the ECM Suite.>>32470463I'd like to drop a single rocket booster (the one on the GM)
>>32470463>NI really dislike most of this.
Rolled 19>>32470463>Y Take the comm for just gm
>>32470504They could, yes. They would only be facing forward, though, so they can't aim very well.>>32470479The boosters are fairly large. They're basically similar to the kind Unicorn Full Armor uses.
>>32470608And the laser coms?
Oh, almost forgot:http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/31719178/#31725192I also forgot to add, any weapons you can take, can also be mounted on your Balls as well.Balls themselves have five hardpoints: The top turret, each arm, the back, and the interior.>>32470608So they increase speed but fuck with agility?If so I dont want them on the balls or our MS.
>>32470608They're that big? I figured they were more like the Aile Striker, something backpack sized. Sturm boosters are too big. Let's not put them on there, then. We wouldn't be able to carry the Balls if we had that big a booster hanging off them.
>>32470463>>32470608Based off this drop the Rocket Boosters from everything. Drop the number of Panzerfaust down to 3 and put them on the GM. I rather to hit with those than just spam them. And take on the ECM suit alsoSo;Chobham Shield - 100 (GM)Panzerfaust - 50X3Laser Comm - 100Countermeasure Suite - 100X3ECM Suite - 250total 900
>>32470463Ok, so from this, it seems like we'll be going:Chobham ShieldPanzerfaust x6Laser CommCountermeasure Suite x3Is this acceptable?>Y>N
>>32470723I can get behind this.I wonder if we should get the Beam spear.Like the one the striker uses.
>>32470739>>32470723Just put what I would like to see.
>>32470739Sounds good. So that's what, 800 points? With 1700 saved for a conversion kit.
>>32470757Personally, I rather just stick the saber. It works for our needs more and that's to cut things in half when they get past the balls and beam rifle.
>>32470739Still think the ECM suite would be nice to have.
So just to gauge reactions:>Nemo Conversion Kit - 2000 >GMIII Conversion Kit - 3000 >Jegan Conversion Kit - 3500 >Jesta Conversion Kit - 4000 >RX-78 Conversion Kit - 4500What should we aim for?I'd personally like to upgrade towards a F90 Type so I'd vote for the Jegan.
Rolled 19>>32470739Can we replace the beam saber with the spear?>y
>>32470739Go for this>>32470723
>>32470913Go Delta Plus or nothing at all.
>>32470913Add a vote for this.
>>32470980nothing at all thendelta plus doesnt fit with what we're doing here with the ball setup
>>32470913I want the memo since it is the cheapestCan we add the beam spear if we're not getting the rockets
>>32470913I'm good with a Jegan or Jesta. Jesta Cannon would be fun.
>>32471061Jesta Juggler Cannon. ALL THE DAKKA.
>>32471061The Jesta Striker looks neat.
>>32471061Kind of want the GM 3 or maybe the nemo since it is the cheap. But let's see how much money we get
>>32471061>>32471112Unfortunately, the balls eat our shoulder hardpoints.
>>32471061Jesta looks cool, I don't know too much about gundam though so I don't know if it's better that the Jegan though
>>32470913I'd like to go with the Nemo so we can eventually upgrade to Le Cygne. I like that suit. Speed, durability, a cool trick shield, and some nice weapons. We could totally customize it to work nicely with our fighting style.
We are turning into 'Muh War' Renatos.I am very ok with this.
>>32471134Do they ? Where did it say? Just wondering
>>32471177> Le CygneGood lord no.
>>32471174Its a special operations use Jegan.>>32471201It doesn't though but the balls are listed under our MS equipment and always detach from our shoulders so I expect thats where it comes from.
>>32471206What's wrong with Le Cygne? I'll admit that the manga it comes from is dumb but the machine itself is cool.
>>32471230I really don't like the design of it for one. And that shield far too much of a gimmick for me.
>>32471061God damn, that thing makes me moist.
>>32471225I want to get confirmation from nerd if possible since we almost always detect them
>>32471272Not the same Anon. But I imagine they do need a hard point to be mounted too, even if they get detached at the start of a match.
>>32471230IMO, our definition of 'cool' is different.I'd go Jegan or Jesta before we can get 2nd suit. Though image of Jegan Juggler kind of offend me.
>>32471317You no rike Jesta with big lunar titanium balls?
>>32470739You tap in your purchases.>Chobham Shield - 100>Panzerfaust x6 - 300>Laser Comm - 100>Countermeasure Suite x3 - 300>Total: 800>Remaining points: 1700You hand the order form to Mason, who nods and files starts collecting the parts you ordered. "You guys need anything else?" He asks."I'd actually like to make some orders." Lucina says. "I need something that can carry swords. Lots of them.""Hmmm, I think I know just the thing!" Mason grins. "I actually got some designs for a sword binder system that can help you carry a lot of extra blades of any size or shape. I think it'll fit your alley!""Huh, I was also thinking about trying to put in a Trans-Am system, too, but I don't think I have the money for it...""Well, there's no official design for that, but I think I can help you out there. Or I guess you can call Holly over. She's good with that stuff." Mason says.Lucina looks deep in thought.>Suggest the sword binder.>Suggest Trans-Am>Other
>>32471317>Though image of Jegan Juggler kind of offend meOh come on now. Maybe we can rebuild the balls to match more towards the Jestas looks would help?
>>32471362>>Suggest the sword binder."You know you want the swords first. We can add the Trans-am later."
>>32471362>>Suggest the sword binder.
>>32471362>>Suggest the sword binder.Trans-Am only lasts for a few seconds. Cover the basics.
>>32471362No ECM suite... Come on Merc.>>32471362>Suggest Trans-AmShe'll get more mileage for it.
>>32471256>>32471317Eh, alright. Different tastes. I'm willing to change my choice, though. There are lots of cool suits descended from Anaheim's grunt units, I'm sure there's one out there that we can both like. How do you feel about the Nouvel GM III?
>>32471347>>32471367>>32471373I don't know whyyy~Maybe because i love vanilla Jegan/Stark Jegan too much that seeing two ball hanging on Jegan shoulder a bit... weird.>>32471362>Suggest the sword binder.Exia Curissaier Seven Sword?
>>32471362>Suggest the sword binder.It'll be cooler
>OtherAsk her which she thinks she'll need more: Versatility or a hidden trump card. Having more swords would give her more options to let her keep from getting overwhelmed, but having the Trans-Am would let her put on sudden bursts of power. Either way could work. I'd go with the sword binder, personally. Everyone's expecting the Exia to have Trans-Am, one that goes somewhere different with the design could be a nice surprise. Not that tons of swords is that unexpected, but still.
>>32471367The idea of special operation balls makes me double over in laughter
>>32471362>Suggest the sword binder.
>>32471505I know! I think we should do that though. Grab some armor parts from another Jesta and rebuild those balls into... I don't know what you would call them after that.
>>32471565Build them so that they can combine into a Drone suit or work separately!
>>32471587Wait wait wait!THIS! With Beam rifles! And Missiles!
>>32471733I hope the lower one doesn't shoot stuff out of its eye...
>>32471733And it would need to look like a mini Jesta too!>>32471759DAKKA! Dakka everywhere.
>>32471733Of course! Why didn't we think of that earlier? Okay, yes, we're making Dwarf Gekko Balls. This is our new goal.
>>32471362"Well, in my opinion, the sword binder would give you more versatility. You can get a bunch of different swords for different situations, stuff like that." You say. "I mean, Trans-Am would make a good trump card, but it wouldn't mean much if you don't have anything to destroy the enemy with.""You have a good point." Lucina nods. "The sword binder it is, then."With that, Mason gives you all the parts you need, as well as extra swords for Lucina and the sword binder design."Hmmm, I know this is supposed to be a pretty simple build..." Lucina frowns as she looks at the instructions. "But maybe we should have Holly come over and take a look at this.">Nah, we can handle it ourselves.>Yeah, let's call her over.>Other
>>32471784No! Make a mini version of this >>32471061 It solves all our problems!
>>32471802>>Yeah, let's call her over.>>OtherLook for charWhere is that girl?
>>32471802>>Nah, we can handle it ourselves.We can guide her if needed, and hopefully we won't end up like Alek and Elsa.
>>32471802>Yeah, let's call her over.Never hurts to have help.
>>32471802>Yeah, let's call her over.Sure let's call imouto
>>32471802>Nah, we can handle it ourselves.Aren't we a builder too? She really doubting our building ability?
>>32471848I believe we're half-and-half.
>>32471802>Nah, we can handle it ourselves."Lucina, if we do that then your binder is going to wind up spherical. I don't know how she'll do it, but I know she will somehow make it into a Ball. I worry about that girl. Someday she's going to hit puberty and realize how ridiculous the things she's been saying about the awesomeness of Balls sound. It's not going to be a good day for her."
>>32468724Hey, Merc I don't really follow this quest but I do follow your CyberPunk Idol One. And I drew/redrew some art. Wanted to give it now, so yeah...
>>32471802>Yeah, let's call her over.>>32471789We should pass this idea on to Holly. She's the RB-79 master.
>>32471886I feel bad for sis...With that said.>>32471802>Nah, we can handle it ourselves.Come on. We do this. A simple build?
>>32471883So a simple build of a sword binder is well within our area of skill.
>>32471908Sorry if it kinda seems outta place but.... yeah.
>>32471908>>32471970These are nice and all, but they really could have waited until after the thread or tomorrow...
>>32471802>Nah, we can handle it ourselves.
>>32471802Oh, let me think. Should we invite the building prodigy over? Hmmm...>Yeah, let's call her over. Dingus.
>>32472003>>32471996True, but I might not be here tomorrow (different time zone and all) and I didn't want to wait another week or so if I missed thread.
>>32472064Then you should have sent them to him through twitter.Etiquette man.
>>32471908>>32471970>>32472003>>32472064Please tell me you'll do one for Cole next.
>>32472064Why no Cole? Biribiri copying plz.
>>32471908That is pretty awesome.>>32471970Though to be blunt, this one looks a bit... off.>>32471802"Come on, Lucina, I know you're a full fighter, but this is a simple build." You chuckle as you roll your eyes. "I can handle something like that easy.""Really?""Yeah. Besides, if we do that then your binder is going to wind up spherical. I don't know how she'll do it, but I know she will somehow make it into a Ball. I worry about that girl. Someday she's going to hit puberty and realize how ridiculous the things she's been saying about the awesomeness of Balls sound. It's not going to be a good day for her." You sigh."That's true." Lucina giggles. "I've always wondered if she actually realizes what she sounds like when she's talking about Balls.""I'd rather she doesn't." You shake your head. "Now come on, let's get started."As you said before, it was a really simple build. All you need was some plasticard and spare plastic and you had your very own sword binder. Now, if you were building a Trans-Am, THAT would be a whole different story. There was no official design, and every single one ever made was essentially unique. "See? Now you can slip a sword of any size into the slot. I'm pretty sure you at least know how to build swords, right?""Yeah, I can handle that." Lucina nods."Hey, watcha guys doing?" You see Charlotte's head lean in between you and Lucina. "Upgrading your Gunpla?""Yes. And hi, Charlotte." You grin.>Wanna help us build?>Let's see you battle!>Other
>>32472119>>Wanna help us build?
>>32472119>Though to be blunt, this one looks a bit... off.Giant head or small body take your pick.>>32472119>Wanna help us build?Still need to do our upgrades.

>>32472119>Wanna help us build?
>>32472119>Other"I made Lucina marathon season 1 of 00 last night. This may have been a bad idea. I've awakened a terrible desire for swords in her, I think. I'm not sure if I should have her watch the rest of the series, now. Given her enthusiasm over the Seven Sword, letting her see 00 Qan[T] would be the doom of us all."
>>32472064>>32472088Didn't really think about that, good idea. I'll have to make a twitter, next time.>>32472091>>32472114I tried but I really couldn't get her down. Was able to do Sparky though. This is the last one. I have for now. And now I am gone. Sorry again.
>>32472341This terrifies me
>>32472064huh they are nice but i would have posted um up on twitter.
We should just get one of these things and stick Balls on it.And paint it white I guess
>>32472119"Wanna help us build?" You say. "I'm both fixing and upgrading my GM Juggler.""Cool." Charlotte takes a seat next to you. "Juggler-type. That's pretty rare. A lot of people usually go for Striker or Sniper builds.""Yeah, well, my Balls bailed me out of more than a few sticky situations." You laugh.Charlotte just gives you a weird look."Look, Charlotte, when you battle with Balls, that sort of language is just inevitable. You just gotta get used to it." You sigh."Noted." Charlotte says, still eying you suspiciously."Anyways, I can't wait to try out this new Chobham Shield and these Panzerfausts. It be nice to actually start shooting out missile spam for once rather than being on the receiving end!" You laugh."Mhm." Charlotte grins. "Anyways, why do you still use a GM?">Never really thought about it. >It's like a part of me. I could never throw it away.>I didn't have much reason to upgrade. >Other
>>32472519>>Never really thought about it.
>>32472519>It's like a part of me. I could never throw it away.Sentimentality time
>>32472519>>It's like a part of me. I could never throw it away.
>>32472519>I didn't have much reason to upgrade.Besides, it's like a part of me at this point. I could never throw it away.
>>32472519>>It's like a part of me. I could never throw it away.>>Other"Besides. It's been waiting for your Zaku."
>>32472519>It's like a part of me. I could never throw it away.
>>32472519>>I didn't have much reason to upgrade.These damned captchas
>>32472519Never really thought about it.
>>32472519>It's a well-rounded MS, plus the visor is more stylish than Gundam faces.
>>32472519>I didn't have much reason to upgrade. >It's like a part of me. I could never throw it away."I always thought it was cooler in the series when a suit got upgraded and enhanced rather than completely replaced. It's...I don't know, I like the sentimentality. There's something appealing about piloting something older because you know it can still keep up with the newer models. I've been fighting with my GM all this time, it would be weird to just leave it behind for a new suit. It's never failed me yet. Even if I did have to swap it out for something more powerful I think I'd do like you do with your Zaku and keep it around for low-stakes battles. Nostalgia can be fun, you know?"
>>32472820>plus the visor is more stylish than Gundam facesso very true
>>32472519"It's like a part of me." You smile as you hold the GM Juggler in your hands. "I could never get rid of it.""Yeah, I can understand that." Charlotte smiles nostalgically. "But at some point, you'll have to move on.""Speaking from experience?""...Yeah." Charlotte smiles sadly. "As you battle more and more, one of two things becomes evident. Either your opponents start getting so advanced that your old gunpla just can't fight them on an even footing, or even worse, they just can't even keep up with you.""Is that why you use a Kampfer now?" Lucina blinks."Yeah. It got to a point where my old Zaku just didn't, or couldn't, do what I wanted it to do. It's hard to explain. It's kinda like learning to ride a tricycle. It's fine when you're a kid, but when you try it again as an adult, you're just too big to fit on it.""That sounds terrible." You frown as you look at your GM. Would the same thing happen to you?"I mean, I'm just speaking from experience, but honestly, anything can happen." Charlotte smiles to try and brighten the mood. "Anyways, You can focus on your GM and I'll work on your Balls."The three of you pause for a very long time. You suddenly break out into laughter at the same moment Charlotte's face turns red when she realizes what she said. Normally you're used to Holly talking like that but hearing it coming out of Charlotte's mouth was just way too funny."THAT'S NOT FUNNY!" Charlotte groans.>Focus on fixing up your GM.>Ask Charlotte about her family.>Ask Charlotte about her Gunpla battling career.>Other
>>32472519"I like the GM. It gets a lot of crap, but it's a solid, flexible platform to work from. Sure the early blocks weren't that great performance-wise, but that can be at least partially attributed to rushed construction, and inexperienced Feddie pilots being pushed to the front lines with minimal training."
>>32472914>Focus on fixing up your GM.Heh, she's working our Balls.
>>32472914I am so glad we picked this MS.>Focus on fixing up your GM.

>>32472914Work the Balls, Charlotte. Yeah, that's right, work 'em like they owe you money.>Ask Charlotte about her Gunpla battling career.
>>32472956>>32472969>>32472914I like to tack on that other also with mine.
>>32472914>Other"Sorry, sorry. It's my sister's fault, you know. She's the one who insisted that I make a Juggler. You remember the Super Ball she had yesterday? That was one out of a collection of dozens. She loves the damn things, I don't know why."So, since we really should change the topic before any of us accidentally says another double entendre, how have you been since last time we met? What have you been up to these past few years, other than the Gunpla Battle business?"
>>32472914>>OtherYou have any Mercury Revs I can borrow? I need a Swiss Army Weapon.
>>32473039Not that I don't like seeing that again, but why?
Oh hey Merc, total random question.Yah or Nah on Ace Combat Infinity?
>>32472914>>Focus on fixing up your GM
>>32473118I unfortunately do not have a PS3 so I can't play it. However, from what I've seen on youtube, it seems pretty good, apart from the fuel system.>>32472914You can't stop giggling as you pin your GM's arm back on and replace some of the pitted and scratched up armor plates. While you're at it you glue on the extra chaff and smoke launcher pieces on various parts of your gunpla, and securely fasten the new chobham shield onto the left arm where the old one previously was mounted."Anyways, Charlotte, what have you been up to all this time?""Travelling, battling while my parents weren't looking, stuff like that." Charlotte shrugged. "Saw a lot of places, met a lot of fighters. I really learned a lot from them.""Must have been nice.""Not really." Charlotte sighs. "All that moving around and not settling down, it's hard to make friends that way. If I could, I would have preferred just to stay here my whole life.""Ah..." You nod.>Ask for a rematch.>Ask to see her Kampfer up close.>Ask what kind of fighters she met.>Other

>>32473235>Ask Charlotte if she likes playing with your balls.
>>32473235>>Ask what kind of fighters she met.
>>32473235>Other"So are you still traveling, or are you going to be in town for the foreseeable future?"
>>32473235>Ask what kind of fighters she met.I don't want the models trashed immediately after repairing them.And she might play the Kampfer card close to her.Add this too >>32473298
>>32473235>Ask what kind of fighters she met.
>>32473278There's the challenge where you can get the ADFX-01 if you play 30 games within the deadline.
>>32473235>>Ask what kind of fighters she met.We saw the kampfer last night.And the rematch would be lopsided. So not now.
>>32473235>>Other"Don't worry, this time we can stay connected, here is my SKYPE contact info, we can VID CHAT and STAY CONNECTED."
>>32473235"So what kind of fighters did you meet?" You ask."Oh, all kinds." Charlotte smiles. "I actually met Ricardo Fellini one time.""What? You mean the Italian champion?" You blink."Oh yeah, he's a real charmer, too." Charlotte chuckles. "Though a lot of people say that he hasn't been quite the same after he started dating that Japanese idol.""You mean Kirara?" You ask."Yeah! That's the one!" Charlotte nods and then narrows her eyes. "Hey, wait a minute, how would you know that...""No reason." You say quickly, looking away. "So did you learn anything from him?""Lots!" Charlotte grins. "He taught me how to move fast and shoot fast, which really helped my Kampfer fighting style. I really owe a lot to him.""Did you meet the Meijin?" Lucina asks."Actually, Japan was like, the ONE country I've never actually visited." Charlotte sighs. "Though if I make the finals, that would change.">Ask her more about what she wants to do at the finals.>Ask if she's met anybody else.>Other
>>32473814>>Ask her more about what she wants to do at the finals.
>>32473814>Ask her more about what she wants to do at the finals.
>>32473814>Other"It's kind of weird that, despite global distribution at this point, the finals are still held in Japan. There are stadium-sized GP Bases in Argentina, even. I don't get it."
>>32473921You avoid major fuckups by keeping it to a single location. (see: Rio, Sochi, Qatar, etc)
>>32474026I suppose that makes sense. Though it certainly didn't stop any major fuckups at the last world championship. Has Jack heard about what happened there, with the giant Plavsky crystal nearly destroying the city? Or has that story been suppressed?
>>32474069That was...extraneous circumstances.Although since this story takes place after the events of GBF, it might be that the crystal never existed in the first place?Or some sort of other whacky bullshit.Could be the crystal never went critical or whatever.
>>32474069Hell, I don't think any kind of damage control/cover up could hide that shit. The specifics of what happened might have been hidden, but completely covering up a motherfucking holographic A-Baoa-Qu busting through the roof of the arena seems kinda far fetched.
>>32474118Gunpla Battle is still ongoing after the end of the series. Nils started a company to provide Plavsky particles now that PPSE is gone. He presumably is also using them for all the world-changing super technology he wanted to make with them, too. So even if the crystal still went critical we'd still be Gunpla Battling.
Does this mean Reiji is porking Aila right now in UC-Afghanistan or something?
>>32473814"You seem pretty determined to get to the finals." You say."Well, of course! What self-respecting Gunpla fighter wouldn't?" Charlotte laughs. "I want to see if I got what it takes to beat the best of the best.""It's sort of a pity, really. I heard Sei Iori isn't participating this year. Talk about bad timing, huh?" You say."Hah, only you would say that's a bad thing." Charlotte snickers. "A lot of people consider that a lucky thing.""Well then they aren't really Gunpla fighters, right?""I guess so." Charlotte chortles. "Fellini almost said the exact same thing!""Actually, now that I think about it, all lotthe big names from the 8th Championships won't be around." You frown. "I mean, Sei Iori and Nils Neilsen aren't participating this year, and Aila Jyrkiäinen literally dropped off the face of the Earth.""Well, that just means there's more room for newcomers like us, right?" Charlotte grins. "Yeah, but I mean, the Meijin is still alive and kicking." You note. "And I hear he's upgrading from Amazing Exia this year. I dunno if your Kampfer can match something like that.""Oh don't worry, I got a trump card ready for-" And then Charlotte stops as if she's spoken too much.>Oh? Tell me more~...>Nah, it's okay. I prefer it to be a surprise.>Other
>>32474218Who wouldn't be fucking Aila? Have you seen that two dimensional ass in those spanx?
>>32474260>>Nah, it's okay. I prefer it to be a surprise.
>>32474260>>Nah, it's okay. I prefer it to be a surprise.>>32474218....more like Aila porking Reiji. And i'd say its UC-Agrabah, Arista waaay to nice for a shitehole that is Afganistan.
>>32474118>>32474148>>32474174>>32474218I guess I should really set aside a night or two so I can watch that show.>>32474260>Nah, it's okay. I prefer it to be a surprise.
>>32474260>Nah, it's okay. I prefer it to be a surprise."I'm looking forward to seeing it."That reminds me: How good do we have to get before we can start pulling Plavsky particle manipulation tricks? Because assuming we do make it to the finals, we'll need something crazy to stay competitive.
>>32474294The show is boss as fuck. It's super fucking japanese/shonen but in a way that's super easy to accept and get into it.Also, tiny robot fights. GBF is basically what the movie Real Steel could've been like but wasn't, because people are shitty.
>>32474355Some fights were sort of bullshit though. Like every time the MCs bust out a Build Knuckle, and the Meijin vs Renato Brothers fight. I swear Meijin should have lost that fight.
>>32474260>Nah, it's okay. I prefer it to be a surprise.Also, not sure if I should be happy or sad that we're not gonna fight Sei if we get to the WT
>>32474351Matroska balls with some sort of bullshit funnel bullshit.Although I don't remember Wing Fenice/Rinascita having any sort of bullshit Plavsky hacks, it was just fucking masterclass and Fellini was off the chain good.You don't gotta go fullest retard to win.
>>32474260>>Nah, it's okay. I prefer it to be a surprise.This should be good.
>>32474383Like I said, super japanesey/shonen.Protag gotta protag gotta protag.
>>32474415Dude, Fellini still wipe the floor while he is nauseated from hangover.Man may not looks much but he have skill.
>>32474260>Nah, it's okay. I prefer it to be a surprise.>Other"As opposed to fighters in our school that play their trump cards as an opening gambit. Repeatedly."
>>32474383Build Knuckle was cool the first few times they used it. But it got boring once it became their go-to attack. Sei, Reiji, don't you remember the Discharge System? Don't you remember how cool that thing was? Why did you use it so rarely? Don't give me that "our opponents adapted to it and kept destroying the energy absorber" excuse. You could run the RG off of internal power, you should be able to run Discharge off of it.>>32474415That's true. Fellini was just very skilled. Fenice had a few pieces of neat equipment, but nothing really game-breaking. But we're not as good as Fellini. We'd need an ace in the hole.
>>32474415Nah, Plavsky hax are for faggots. I say we just grab a sub kit and start working from there. Our Juggler's already pretty damn good, but we may need a sub in case shit hits the fan.
>>32474415Fellini was just that good. And his build skills are top class.Because goddamn, when you have gunpla like this, it'd be weird not to have the skills to back it up.
>>32474415HG Rinascita when?
>>32474260"Nah, it's okay, I prefer it to be surprise." You grin. "Though I really look forward to seeing it.""Ah, thanks." Charlotte sighs apologetically. "I'm really sorry if I seem standoffish or bitchy when it comes to the exact capabilities of Kampfer Espada but... you know how competitions work. Everybody's looking for an edge and knowing how your opponent's suit works gives you a really big one.""It's no big deal, I understand." You nod. "Though at least you actually treat it as a trump card. I know a lot of people who use stuff like that to open fights.""What? NO." Charlotte recoils in horror. "Tell me you're kidding.""I'm not. A lot of kids at my school do that.""That. Is. HORRIBLE." Charlotte fumes. "I should go over there and beat their asses.">You totally should.>There's no need for that.>Other
After looking at the pastebin, does this mean our Juggler build surpasses the GMII?What's the difference between the Nemo and GMII?
>>32474479Discharge looks like it has a lot of power drain, though. And the RG buff output can be controlled. If the absorber shield gets offed, it'd make sense for them not to be able to use it, high-energy requirements and all.
>>32474465This. Those fucker make me sick.
>>32474540>>There's no need for that."We're gonna do that already anyways"
>>32474540>>There's no need for that.'thats our job, Char. Don't take all of the fun'>>32474484Still advocating on transformable unit.Or can't we rig our GM so it can use some backpack like Re-GZ? As alternative loadout maybe, in case our balls are spent out?
>>32474540>>There's no need for that.>>"That's our club's job, that's what we're doing now"
>>32471362GAAAAAAAH!!! The day we spend our points is the day I have to work till 1am DAMMNIT!!!! We should save points for a back up kit. And build the ultimate shenanigans suit.
>>32474540>>There's no need for that.
>>32474540>>OtherYou should join our high school team. Then we'll get to pilot together and kick their asses.
>>32474540>You totally should. But there's not need for that. We got it covered.
>>32474540>There's no need for that."But it you felt like having a match with me, I wouldn't complain."
>>32474585We are. We only spent 800 out of 2500. We made some upgrades, but we're mostly conserving them for later.
>>32474540>>You totally should.Join mah team, babe.
>>32474585We're gonna be the jesta juggler
>>32474630I kind of want to get the GMIII or Nemo (Leaning towards the former)The getting the Jesta.
>>32474540>There's no need for that.Keep catching votes at the end.
>>32474630why not look into Stark Jegan parts to possibly say cast off dead weight in a battle?
>>32474706Our dead weight are the balls and they get ejected immediately.
>>32474540>You totally should."Do it with your old Zaku, too, just to spite them. To be honest, that's half the reason I'm sticking with the Juggler. Against a team that likes to spam super attacks from main protagonist suits, fighting them with a silly little MSV is going to be incredibly satisfying."
>>32474540>>You totally should but that's what we're trying to do at school. And I don't think having a famous player do it would teach them as much of a lesson.>>32474548The Nemo is a refined GM II, which was a mild improvement over the GM.
>>You totally should but that's what we're trying to do at school. And I don't think having a famous player do it would teach them as much of a lesson.
>>32474578Well, if we go transformable I say we go Zeta. Maybe rig some sort of Ball-backpack-thing as an alternate loadout to keep with the Juggler theme.
>>32474704I like the GM and Jegan model,The Nemo is cheap and can get along with some upgrades.Something like the Jesta seems a bit long terms.>>32474770AH, I see thank you. My Gundam lore isn't that refined.
>>32474540"Actually, char. In your opinion, how would you counter strike freedom's beamspam, Unicorn's NT-D or Turn A's moonligjt butterfly?"
>>32474540>You totally should.
>>32474799....Do we need to always keep with Juggler theme?IMHO its alright if we have one Juggler unit, but sticking Juggler in all of our suit is a sign of....
>>32474814Its cheaper but its false economy if we're going to change frame soon after.
>>32474799I honestly dont see a point in transformable though.
>>32474845Good question as I think there's a limit to how long we can go with the theme purely, in both effectiveness and sense. It dosn't help the mention of balls brights out the inner 13 year old of /tg/ more than WH40k.
>>32474814I don't like the Jesta, and I'll admit it's for an entirely pointless reason. I think its arms look stupid. Its forearms are so much thicker than the upper arms, it just looks like they should snap off. The rest of the suit is fine, though. So if we do go for the Jesta, can we give it some customized arms? Maybe some extra armor?
>>32474799What's the deal with the hard-on for a transformable. It's about as bad as the juggler at this point
I agree, I'd rather just keep the GM Juggler as our only Ball equipped suit.It'd get REALLY old pretty fast in my opinion if we just kept on equipping Balls onto our Gunpla.
>>32474630Yeah. I mean seriously. Look at this clever idea I have.
Rolled 97>>32474904>>32474845I agree. Hell we don't have to limit ourselves to one or two suits. We can have as many as we need for field variations.
>>32474854I guess? But I rather get weapons upgrades along the way and the Jesta is the second most expensive build next to the RX-78 (Which model is that by the way? The Gundam, Guncannon, or guntank?)As long as we get the beam spear and heat knife, I guess I'll support it
>>32474925Why not? It's fool proof! And it also uses our existing resources!
>>32474933>RX-78 (Which model is that by the way? The Gundam, Guncannon, or guntank?)>Which model is the RX-78>RX-78You serious?
>>32474933>beam spearAnd what's the deal with thing? The saber more than meets our needs.
>>32474845Maybe? Though I like the Juggler system. If we can get conversion kits for our balls as well, I like for it to stick around
>>32474904Yeah. The problem will be that by the point we switch to a new machine we'll have become pretty dependent on the Balls for our fighting style. So we need something to replace it for scouting and fire support duties. Maybe some large funnels like the Nu's fin funnels or the AGE-FX's A-Funnels?>>32474933RX-78 is the original Gundam. In-universe it's outclassed by most of the suits we're likely to face, but given how important it is to the franchise it would be a very impressive and capable gunpla, making it actually quite effective. I'd assume that's why it's the most expensive of the conversion kits.
>>32474901The difference is 1.Nobody yet reach consensus on Transformables unit and 2. Since we already go with 'Solo Wing Pixy' scheme, we need at least one plane suit to go with this.>>32474956hey, beam spear is quite cool.
>>32474845Well, scrap the Juggler idea then. And I really don't care if it is a transformable or not, I just have a soft spot for the Zeta. Anyways, I just think we should stop focusing on only one suit.
>>32474956Different anon but considering our first was thr striker, I see that we'll have good use with it.Whats more after we uncouple two gigantic balls, oir suit will be light. Perfect for an assault striker and the spear is great as an offensive melee weapon.
>>32474953Their is the RX-78-1, RX-78-2, and RX-78-3.Just wanted to make sure. >>32474956It has a longer range, and I kind of feel in love with it in Unicorn
>>32474956Beam Spear has a much longer reach and can do spear tricks with it. The drawback being that only the tip is beamed, the rest is a haft.
>>32474981I really have to say I like the Kshatriya. And I mean we don't have to add Balls to it. But we can at the very least add the shield bits from the Mercurius.
>>32474540>>You totally should.> These people voting against more Char-time
>>32475002>The drawback being that only the tip is beamed, the rest is a haft.Yeah see that's what I thought. Great longer reach, right up until someone cuts the fucker.
>>32475026Theres no equipment in the haft.At that point we draw beam saber and dual wield.
>>32474998The Guncannon and Guntank are none of those. Guntank is RX-75, and Guncannon is RX-77. '>Their is the RX-78-1, RX-78-2, and RX-78-3.There's no real difference between those besides loadout.
>>32474998Those are actually all the Gundam. They made six of the RX-78 series, with the only real difference between them being minor variations in weapons loadout. The exception is the RX-78-6, which is substantially upgraded from the original design. There was also going to be an RX-78-7, but it didn't get finished until after the war. Damn cool machine, though.
>>32475026If we going to do any kind of reach weapon I say we go for the Sword from the Sword Strike.
>>32474998Those are all gundam models, the Guncannon (RX-77) and Guntank (RX-75) have different model numbers.
>>32475044That sword is complete shit, tho. Grab something from the Exia/00 line.
>>32475040>>32475043>>32475046Oops, my bad. I just remember the original product had those three
>>32474540>>There's no need for that>>32474969I still like my idea of using the mine-model to store funnels. >>32474981Let's keep it, if we're going to up it's strength we get more hard points
Eh, i just remember that FA RX-78 from Thunderbolt have that mechanical arm to take additional shields.Why don;t we try to upgrade our Juggler into that?
>>32475069For something with reach? You shittin me mate? Oh! Idea! Why not grab the sword from the Astray Blue 2nd R?
>>32474969>>32474969Hrmm, If we wanted something that works like the Balls that are attached to the GM by wires I believe then perhaps INCOMS from the Doven Wolf or the Silver Bullet?...Now there's an Idea for a Gunpla to maybe get in the future, I'd be down for getting a Silver Bullet.
>>32475069>>32475044Get the Striker's Beam Spear. It was the best Melee use Equipment up until Unicorn for a reason.
>>32475105Thats the jesta too. It has the movable arm for the shield.One of the reasons I advocated the F90 as a final upgrade platform is its modularity. In UC it was supposed to have hardpoints on every limb for 7, not including skirt equipment hardpoints. It could even mount the waverider system or the VSBRs of the F91. It'll definitely keep the juggler balls too.
>>32475132I continue to maintain that this is our ideal upgrade suit. If we're going to get anything new.
>>32475132How about a Delta Kai?
>>32475145I could definitely go for an F90, yeah. It's a nice machine.
>>32475155We're federation, how is that going to turn out?
>>32475155Okay, we get it, you have a massive boner for this thing.
>>32475145....aren't Formula Series are way smaller than GM?Could we fit our jugglers comfortably?>>32475180Pfft.Feddies will use anything they can get on hand.
>>32475182>>32475180And? It's amazing and doesn't cause a drastic shift in our combat style, like everything else that's being suggested here.
>>32475160Delta kai got slaughtered in that fight.If you have any arguements to make, present the case otherwise I dont see what benefits this brings over another suit.
>>32475155I like the Kshatriya too but could you please stop waving your boner for it in my face?
>>32475160Agreed, but for the love of god, no Balls.Qan[T]'s Sword Bits maybe?
I'd like to see us get a G3-Saviour. It's pretty good looking and highly adaptable and customizable, and since it's a G-Saviour unit, it keeps with our theme of not using the top all time best and recognizable suits.
>>3247521618m vs 14m but when you consider that we detach our balls first thing in the fight, it doesn't matter very much.
>>32475254...I have nothing against the suit, but...it's G-Fucking-Saviour.
>>32475252Why not? I want to see how far the Juggler system goes. If we can upgrade the AI or improve the balls into better models, I see no reason not to keep it.If it's a dead end, you may have a point but let's see how far the rabbit hole goes
>>32475245>If you have any arguements to make, present the case otherwise I dont see what benefits this brings over another suit.This is Gunpla Battle, it's all based on build skill and how much love you have for the suit. We could literally build an RX-78, go all the way to the finals with it and rape everything else.
>>32475285>>32475254Yeah, I wouldn't be caught dead piloting this... Thing.
>>32475285It's be a good psychological play too. Our opponents go "Haha! Using a G-Saviour." then we kick their ass.
You could also make something completely new, you know. Star Build Strike was some bullshit hax the MC kid for Build Fighters did, and it was only marginally based off of the Strike. Everything else was Plavsky magic dust. If we wanted to have some sort of gundam have Balls as options, nothing is stopping us from doing it. We just have to build it.Of course, I'm pretty much fed up with our current obsession with Balls. I'd welcome any upgrades beyond it.
>>32475252That would be Lucina'sWe may use.... what is lockon suit name again? Zabanya?>>32475273Refresh me, do we still tethered to our balls with cable or not? Since Formula Series main gimmick is speed, will it affect the main suit performance?god, i hate CAPTCHA.
>>32475287Actually the deadends are the current in universe remote attack weaponry.The balls have massive customisability and we can fit them for defence, ranged or other missions.>>32475295So you basically invalidated any reason why we should bring the delta kai instead of the GM in the first place since piloting skill trumps all.
>>32475287Eh, I dunno, let's keep the Balls on our GM and focus on a new gimmick/playstyle for the new suit.
>>32475160One more for this.
>>32475327Detached completely.They run freely around the battlefield under their own AI.
>>32475330We have a GM though. And alot of us like the Land Battle Delta Kai, so why not aside from "I don't wanna change suits, BAWW."
>>32475327Lockon's is the Zabanya, yes. And our Balls aren't tethered, they're free-flying.
>>32475327Well, I DO love sniper units. Delta Kai Sniper Custom, who's with me?
>>32475343Except for that time we attacked the Mobile Armor head on and bombarded it with beam, auto cannon, and saber attacks
>>32475362What about using parts from Arios Ascalon too. We can keep the missile launchers and rifle bits, and we have a high speed assault MA form for melee and the NITRO system as a trump card.
>>32475365We can still direct them, we just don't have to. They have some volition of their own. They even saved us from the plasma leaders. If we do switch to a different remote weapon type, we need to at least take a part of them to put in it. The eye lenses, maybe. They've served us well, it would be an insult to forget them like that.
>>32475355Not that anon but we have custom kits for our GM, the Jesta or Jeagan (though I like the GMIII myself) seem good and have upgrades that go beyond that as well which can defeat some gundam units. The Delta itself seems like a new kit entirely.
>>32475355Because its the exact type of suit we're trying to stop.Fight OP'd mc suits with OP'd mc suits. Its the message we're trying to spread in this tourny.
>>32475362>>32475386Stop it, you guys makes me droll.
>>32475327Zabanya is alright, but the Cherudim GNHW/R has it beat in style points.
>>32475386NIIIIICE! I like the way you think, anon.
>>32475396We don't have to completely scrap our GM Juggler. We can keep that, work on it and build the Delta Kai or whatever second suit we want. >>32475398Yes, because Delta Kai is an "OP MC" suit. Totally OP. I dunno why I didn't consider it on the same level as Strike Freedom or Turn A.
>>32475388Oh course, I'm not against the Juggler system, I like it. I just remembered that one event which we used ourselves as a heavy artillery unit. they did serve with distinction. I hope we can continue to get upgrades for them
>>32474540>Whoops, sorry about the delay, there!"There's no need for that. Me and my friends are already working on that." You laugh. "I mean, we already beat the shit out of one of those teams. Can you believe that they brought a damn Val Varo in a match?""Seriously?" Charlotte fumes. "I know mobile armors are technically allowed, but it's still a dick move to bring one.""I know, right?" You chuckle. "Anyways, the though just occurred to me. Which school do you go to?""Actually, well..." Charlotte shifts nervously. "I don't. I'm home schooled.""Ew." You frown. "Really?""Remember? Family travels a lot? Can't really settle down or anything.""Well, what about now? Are you here for good or just passing by?""Fortunately," Charlotte smiles, "I'm old enough that I can pretty much take care of myself, so I'm here for the long haul. Still stuck with tutors, though.">Ah, that sucks.>You should totally ditch the tutors and come to our school.>Other
>>32475459>>You should totally ditch the tutors and come to our school.

>>32475459>>You should totally ditch the tutors and come to our school.>>OtherIF YOU WANT TO YOU KNOW.
Guys, are we going to have a Gunpla battle? I kind of want to have a match with Lucina or Char before we end this session. I want to see how well our upgrades go
But its not like we want you on our team. Baka.
>>32475546Yeah, let's not pressure her about it. I'm sure her tutoring is very high quality, we wouldn't want to make her feel she HAS to give it up. Just that she'd be welcome at the school, if she wanted to come.
>>32475571it's too late, baby, now it's too late. Though we really did try to make it~
>>32475520I am not sure how OP is Delta Kai. But since general consensus is we stick to grunty/underdog suit if we can, Delta Kai should be our trump card.>>32475571Eh, seconding this.
>>32475571Agreed, A quick battle would be a good way to end the session.
>>32475571We'll probably end with PLEASE SET YOUR GP BASE
>>32475603Eh, it's not a bullshit unit like a MC Gundam, but it's pretty strong. I Still keep my vote for a Delta Kai Sniper/Arios Ascalon combo
>>32475663That or she just wrecks us in a couple of moves.
>>32475603>>32475676I don't get the hardon for "generic," suits. Renato(s) and their GM Sniper show that literally any suit, with the building and piloting talent, can be competitive at the word level.Get off your high horse and model what you fucking want, not because the weird fucking zeitgeist is having another Tourette's episode.
>>32475663>>32475691Or we fight Lucina and it's her sword vs our missile and shields
>>32475603Pretty squarely in MC unit territory. OP, maaybe. We've only seen it in combat against the worst offenders after all.Fin Funnel system, Mega blaster cannon used by Hyaku shiki. A Stronger Hi Mega cannon like the one used on ZZ and a system that lets an old-type use new-type weapons.Add in transformable in the technology demonstrator unit along with other standard issues, and its a very unique machine. Something that the Gunpla club would probably happily use.
>>32475711Then why are we trying for a new suit, spending cash when we can use the money to upgrade our current one to even higher standards?
>>32475676Sorry, i mistaking Delta Kai with Delta plus earlier. I'd advocate Delta Plus+Ascalon combo, but still to early to Kai i think. We haven't see our final boss yet. >>32475711Personally? I like Grunt suits, thats it.
>>32475738Luci would be more on our level, all things considered. But meh, I'm cool as long as we get to roll a couple of times this thread.
>>32475742They don't seem to care about whether a suit is unique so much as whether it's ridiculously powerful. Strike Freedom isn't that unique, but it's plenty powerful, and that's on their team. Delta Kai is still pretty damn powerful and would probably count for them, but not because it has unique gimmicks. They are anti-gimmick. If they cared about gimmicks they wouldn't spam super modes at the beginning of every match.
>>32475711We are modelling what we fucking want. Which happens to be grunt suits for a sizable number of people evidently.
>>32475755Because it's transformable.
>>32475797Of the requirements, what we know is Mass Production suits are not allowed.Lucina's exia wasn't very strong but was still accepted.
>>32475711I like grunt and generic suits because it's a bit easier to personalize them and give them distinctive looks with custom equipment and paint jobs. But I tend to like simpler aesthetics over more stylized ones when it comes to mecha.
>>32475778Delta Plus+Ascalon is fine by me. Any objections, fellow elegan/tg/entlemen?
>>32475807Well, that is what we could afford at the beginning. Some people want to make that a point of pride. I don't really care so long as we remain competitive.
>>32475829Yes.But I don't expect to be able to convince you anyways.
>>32475826I kind of agree with this anon. Some of the later Gundam series have so many sharp points, I feel like I could poke my eye out just looking at it.
>>32475711I do want to get a newer suit, something much more powerful....But later, once we beat those fuckers in the Gunpla Club with our "inferior mass production" GM Juggler and show them a REAL Gunpla Battle. Not those stupid squash matches that they have the utter GALL to call Gunpla Battles....After that, I would DEFINITELY get behind getting a something stronger and unique.
>>32475830Different anon, but I get what you mean. For example, you put so much time and effort speccing your F-14 Tomcat, and then all of a sudden you can now afford an F-22 Raptor.
>>32475778Then, one Anon to another, I request that you be honest about your reasoning(s).It's not "because grunt suits! fuck protagonists!" it's because "I wanna roll in a jimmy."If you're honest about your desires I can, at the very least, respect your opinion for being honest.Don't hide behind bullshit.>>32475755I dunno. If I were in GBF-world I'd want to kitbash the shit out of my Gaia, RX-78-2, a GM Striker, gank the heat swords from Yuuji's Kampfer Amazing (or another super baller looking heat sword), and maybe with some MSN-06S thrown in because it looks super fucking cool, and that's what gunpla is about.
>>32475826This. You can give the grunt units a lot my character than a lot of the stuff people have been throwing around in this thread lately.>>32475829>Any objectionsYes.
>>32475829Come on, don't rush this. If and when we upgrade our suit to another model, we are already penciled in for wasteing 3-4 hours to get something nobody is going to be super happy with.
>>32475891The sad part is people will keep planning no matter what. Even when we're no where near the point to even act on it. Honestly, it gets fucking old.
>>32475872Bit of a weird direction to go here, quite far off from what we've been considering so far, but how about basing it off the Aegis Gundam? I really like how its joints work, it has a lot of maneuverability as a result. I've been playing Shin Gundam Musou lately and it's one of the cooler suits, just because of all the weird ways it can move. Considering that we're going for a trickster/combat coordinator thing, being able to contort our gunpla into weird shapes could be helpful. And it can even transform, for those who want it.
>>32475876F-22 can't doa F-14's job and I was about to planesperg before i realized it doesn't fucking matter.parting wisdom: You can have both. Just because you eat peanuts doesn't mean you can't also like popcorn.
>>32475878Personally, i never say 'fuck protagonist suits' on this quest. The most i have said in this session is ' I want a transformable suit! Because Solo Wing Pixy!'
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3jNep1Ywc8Reason I kind of want a Beam Spear.
>>32468724I ordered my first ever Gunpla kit because of this quest and a thread on /toy/.I hope you're happy Merc!I know I am.
>>32475993I want to like transformables but I haven't seen one that hasn't looked like total shit.Even my Gaia is...dumb as fuck, basically. But it's got cool parts I can probably use on my RX-78-2.
>>32476037>Zeta>Total shitPlease kill yourself.
>>32476037The one that transform into plane usually have nice look on them.
>>32475913I suppose. Honestly all I am hoping for is to get is something like an RX-78ish with some enhancements that fit our style.
>>32475459"You should totally ditch your tutors and enroll in our school." You say bluntly. "Maybe I should!" Charlotte laughs."She WOULD be a great asset to our team." Lucina nods. "Oh yeah, definitely.""Yeah, I just gotta be prepared for the huge shitstorm when people inevitably figure out who I am." Charlotte sighs. "Then I'll never hear the end of it.""Ah, well, you still got us to back you up." You grin. "I guess you're right." Charlotte nods.At this point, your GM is pretty much already repaired and upgraded, and you see that Charlotte has also finished fixing up your Balls.>Let's have a quick friendly match.>Let's call it a day.>Other
>>32476063I'm sorry bro but I just can't get over how the feet are just...there. Being feet.Doing nothing. Being fucking robot feet.Can't they transform the feet too? C'mon.

>>32476086They kind of transform on the Delta Kai, even if they just fold over.
>>32476081>Let's have a quick friendly match.>Other (Make it conditional. A Gunpla equivalent to "First Blood" so our suits don't get too damaged.)I just realized that our teams were lucky that the 3v3 match didn't feature a group consisting of Victory and/or V2 Gundams.They'd be able to interchange with one another if one of their teammates sustains any sort of damage to their parts. It'll just be "purge and recombine" til they are down to the last suit.That's a different sort of hax that doesn't rely on Super Mode, but is scarily effective.I'll say that it's the reason I like those types of mobile suits, but I personally won't advocate for it since ideas are getting saturated.
>>32476113But they don't even produce thrust or even if they did there's no nozzle or anything that would even pretend to be functional.My autism can't deal.
So combining Balls, yes or no?
>>32476121Ah, remind me to that particular scene on Crossbone Ghost.>>32476127Wut. On Zeta there is some thruster on leg side.
>>32476081>Let's have a quick friendly match.BATTORU
>>32476114The Unicorn can only hijack bits and other weaponry controlled by a Newtype.
>>32476114But its an AI model? Balls have a basic AI system which I hope we can upgrade.
>>32476116That's...better. The variable geometry seems cool but the wings are just so stubby, like a fat kid's tiny chode of a penis.or is that just a weird perspective/bad drawing? Also confused about the things that protrude and ruin the airflow next to the nose cone but other than that it's neat.
>>32476086Not unless they're built like a valkyrie.
>>32476090read a guide and went with the GN-0000 00 Gundam because they recommend it as a good starter. Once I receive it and finish putting it together I'm going to get the NZ-666 Kshatriya.

>>32476169Honestly, I think that mobile armor forms tend to look best when they're NOT trying to look aerodynamic. Like the Rosso Aegis or the EX-S. At least then they don't have to try to hide their legs. Overall, much better looking.
i got battle music picked out guys!!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llGOobmaNrY
>>32476279Its a ground effect mode, lets the mech stay in the air, keep some mobility while being able to redirect fire in any direction around it.So let it act like a chopper in ground assault.
>>32476279GERWALK mode (Yes, it's called GERWALK, and is almost always capitalized. No one's really sure why, just roll with it) has two main uses. The first is wing-in-ground flight for faster speed in ground combat. The second is that in aerial combat, letting out the limbs lets it thrust vector better with the leg engines or fire on targets not directly in front of it using the arms.
>>32476306>>32476311But it looks so dumb...
>>32476286At least zeta series only sticking out their legs.FLAG series have their hand sticking out too.
>>32476327It already crosses that path when transforming from plane to mech.Might as well make use of it.
>>32476329Well technically it's 3V2Don't forget the Juggler system
>>32476150>>32476163In the Vs Games it could Hijack DRAGOONs and other non-UC Bit-like weaponry. Besides this is Build Fighters, but I can see the need to sort of preserve some semblance of realism when it comes to the capabilities of some suits in relation to different universes.
>>32476327To be fair, this was also used for the predecessor of the Kyrios
>>32476358So they are going to break our Balls first?I am quite okay with this.
>>32476359Speaking of realism I want to know how the fuck someone just builds an EXAM or Trans Am system.Are they stuffing tiny go pills into the tiny cockpit in the tiny plastic model's mouth?
>>32476207"How about a three way battle?" You ask. "First hit elimination.""Ooooh, interesting." Charlotte grins. I'm up for it."Interesting." Lucina nods. "Let's do it."With that, the three of you set up at one of the battle tables. SET GP BASEBEGINNING PLAVSKY PARTICLE DISPERSALFIELD: CITYYour GM Juggler drops down into the middle of an abandoned town square. Your GM's head swivels around as you try to get your bearings. Fortunately even with the presence of all the buildings, you manage to catch two strong signals, which meant your opponents were airborne. Sure enough, you see Charlotte's red Kampfer and Lucina's blue Exia up in the air. Pretty ballsy for the both of them, exposing themselves like that.Neither of them have seen you yet, and you know that with both of them in the air, it was only a matter of time before they ran into each other.>Attack Charlotte>Attack Lucina>Let them both duke it out.>Other
>>32476207>>HARD MODE, whynotboth.jpgWe must use punstorm defense. Balls jokes everywhere. Uncontrollable giggling and Ultimate Blushing debuffs go!
>>32476397>Other>attack them both
>>32476388Wait you don't shove tiny go pills into YOUR plastic models to give it a Trans am system?Seriously speaking though, they might just put something in the hollow of the cockpit. Maybe like a sticker or a small data-chip for effect.
>>32476397>Let them both duke it out.>OtherBalls Puns, all of them. Extreme lewd edition.
>>32476397>Balls go against Charlotte Avenge Holly's Super Ball>We go for Lucina
>>32476397>Let them both duke it out.Catfight!
>>32476327It grows on you. GERWALK mode actually makes for some pretty great action sequences. The important thing to remember is that variable fighters are constantly shifting modes. It will only hit GERWALK mode for a few moments to make a dash or to brake suddenly or stuff like that. Here, let me get some good YouTube clips.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-90zCZtH9Uhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBtMlCkpbfwhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXNa88lRh4E
>>32476397send the balls up and have them fire the initial shoots at each. If one misses take a shot at the one that misses if they both miss get to cover.
>>32476397>>Attack Charlotte"Its been a while. CHAAAAR."
>>32476432at the one that was missed i mean.
>>32476411I wasn't until tonight. Now all of my plastic model kits will be receiving their daily rations of meth.I was thinking I'd, like...I don't even even, man. It's too late for this shit.Maybe like some copper wiring, a tiny watch or hearing aid battery, a tiny bindle of cocaine in the chest, and, like, a barf bag, sunglasses, black trenchcoat and gun?
>>32476397>>32476427This, We attack Lucina while our buddies attack the one who repaired them
>>32476397>Attack LucinaSo is Char using her Kampher? Or is she going with the Zaku?
>>32476397We have as many balls as we have targets. SHOOT THEM BOTH
>>32476397>Distract them with Balls
>>32476397>Attack Lucina>Use Balls to attack Char
>>32476452"Guess these ladies just couldn't....""HANDLE MY BALLS!"yeaaaaaaaaahhhhhh.
>>32476445See, I'd just install a tiny model of pic related.
>>32476478I'll allow it. Anyone who models in a tiny car engine can do whatever they want.
>>32476441It IS the perfect opportunity to say it. We can't really say it after we've already fought her. Kind of ruins it if we've met her in battle before we say it.
>>32476397>Yo Buddy, still alive?
>>32476397You decide that you'd rather not just sit back and watch your two friends fight. However, you had no intention of getting stabbed in the back either, so you send your Balls off to deal with, or at least distract, Charlotte while you head directly for Lucina. With your Balls' speed, they would engage Charlotte before you would reach Lucina. You could have them fire at will, but at this range, the shots would be inaccurate, but getting in closer was probably a bad idea, too.>FIRE EVERYTHING>Just fire enough to keep Charlotte moving and away from you.>Other
>>32476534>Just fire enough to keep Charlotte moving and away from you.Anyone got some decent strategy? Because we are going to need it if we don't one shot Luci.

>>32476561I don't suppose we can maneuver them into hitting each other or something?
>>32476534>>Just fire enough to keep Charlotte moving and away from you.>>If she closes in then FIRE EVERYTHING
>>32476596Oh sure, we easily could have. But that would have been boring, so we charged in to engage both.
>>32476534Have one Ball fire intermittently, and kinda bob about like it isn't working well while the other Fires everything at Char while she goes after the lame ball? Maybe play it up to instill doubt in her since she was in charge of rebuilding our balls.I she ignores that one, then have both slam her with a crossfire volley.
>>32476613Deep fucking cover, Anon. Deep fucking cover.
>>32476608I figured we do that, then we blast them with every thing we've got.
>>32476639Yes? I guess?
>>32476534You decide not to have your Balls fire off too early and instead have them keep their distance and keep her busy while you engage Lucina. Both Balls' autocannons and beam rifles chatter and whine as they unleash their firepower at the distant crimson dot. You see Charlotte's Kampfer suddenly veer away in a seemingly impossible direction before dropping down to street level to avoid the incoming fire. Good, that will keep her busy for a bit.You then see Lucina's Exia curve as she begins heading toward you.>Keep your distance and engage her from range.>Meet her charge and engage in close combat.>Other
>>32476534>Just fire enough to keep Charlotte moving and away from you.>If she closes in then FIRE EVERYTHING
>>32476686>Keep your distance and engage her from range.
>>32476686>>Meet her charge and engage in close combat.[Ace Combat: Zero reference]
>>32476686>>Meet her charge and engage in close combat.HONORABLE APPROACH! I really wish we had that Bear Spear, Well let's test out our shield
>>32476686>Keep your distance and engage her from range.Let her push after us through a hell of fire.
>>32476686>Meet her charge and engage in close combat.It's only fair. She's got a bunch of new swords, let's give her a chance to show them off.
>>32476686>>Keep your distance and engage her from range.Panzer Faust bitch.
>>32476740Our balls have the panzerfaust
>>32476740The panzerfausts are on the Dakka Balls, not the Juggler.
>>32476686>Keep your distance and engage her from range.She wants to get in our face she better work for it
Our theme, maybe?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCmTJVew_tY>>32476745Oh. I thought we all had a couple of them. Meh its all good.
>>32476761We can add them next time along with the Heat Knife both don't require a hard point
>>32476792Yeah, I though we had purchased 6 to spread around: 2, 2, 2. I kind zoned out during the buying phase.
Rolled 8, 5, 8 = 21>>32476686Not wanting to engage Lucina in close combat, you instead hang back and raise your beam rifle to fire. >roll 1d20
Rolled 12>>32476856Yo, Buddy. Still alive?
>>32476873Well. Thank you.
>>32476856>>32476873That was close
>>32476856You fire off several bursts, but Lucina manages to dodge most of them, with you only managing to score some hits on her shield. Lucina continues to close, not even bother bringing out her GN pistol. You knew she was itching for a swordfight.>Continue to back away and shoot.>Countercharge and try to steal the initiative.>Other
>>32476973Counter-charge.She will never expect it!
>>32476973>>Countercharge and try to steal the initiative.Test out the shield!
>>32476973>Countercharge and try to steal the initiative.
>>32476973>Countercharge and try to steal the initiative.Really wish we had some grenades right now.
>>32476973>Countercharge and try to steal the initiative.She'll never see it coming
>>32476973>Countercharge and try to steal the initiative.Oh, might as well. It's clear she wants a sword fight. Let's see what her cool new swords can do.
>>32476973>Countercharge and try to steal the initiative.Captcha: taunts ropplob>he he he
>>32476992We have our new shield.Wished we bought the spear but we can test how durable the new shield
Rolled 14, 13, 8 = 35>>32476973Tossing away your beam rifle, you draw your beam saber and charge forward. You now that the GM is nearly fast enough to outrun the Exia, so your only choice is to stand and fight, and hopefully catch LUcina off guard. You charge forward, beam saber glowing bright pink in the air.>roll 1d20
Rolled 20>>32477186COME ON
Rolled 6, 8, 20, 2 = 36>>32477198And your ploy to catch Lucina off guard works. While her swords are drawn, they aren't in a position to attack, and your sudden boost forwards throws off her timing. You raise your shield and it slams directly into Exia, knocking it back. You then stab forward with your beam saber, jabbing through Exia's torso, or at least, it would have, if you were playing seriously. The table registers the hit and you see the Exia deactivate and fall back down the table.Now you just had to figure out where Charlotte was...>roll 1d20
Rolled 16>>32477244Shit, WHat happen to the balls!
Rolled 9>>32477244So does being an ace mean Charlotte gets more than three dice? Nifty.
>>32477265Its cool. Maybe.
>>32477255Your proximity sensors whine a warning and you turn around just in time to see one of your inert balls flying at you. You don't have any time to react, and your Ball slams directly into your GM, sending it tumbling in the air. You manage to catch the Kampfer Espada speeding towards you, but before you can do anything, you see the Kampfer's black flare as it belches a flurry of missiles from a concealed launcher in its back. You raise your shield to block, but your GM is stitched in explosions and is "destroyed" anyways.WINNER: KAMPFER ESPADA"Aw damn." You sigh as the table shuts down. "Good game, Charlotte, Lucina.""I have to admit." Charlotte chuckles as she picks up her gunpla. "Those Balls really are pretty annoying, and they pack a lot of firepower. Unfortunately for you, so does my Kampfer.""Yeah, I saw." You sigh and shake your head. "That was pretty mean, attacking me with my own Ball.""Teaches you to take on two opponents at once.""Well, I think it was very bold of him." Lucina says. "I didn't expect you to go for a close in fight.""Yeah, I'm just full of surprises, aren't I?" You grin."Aw shoot, I totally lost track of the time!" Charlotte blinks as she glances at her phone. "I gotta go, but it was great playing against you two. Maybe we can have a proper 1v1 later!" "Looking forward to it." You nod.With that, Charlotte quickly packs up her things and rushes out the door, waving goodbye to the both of you."She's strong." Lucina says. "I can tell, even in that battle, she was holding back.""Ha, I guess she's just way too nice, isn't she?" You smile and shake your head. "Guess that means we both have to step up our game.""Well, maybe you.""Ha ha, very funny, Lucina." You can't help but laugh.>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget to catch Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and I'm running an assassin-based oneshot this Sunday! Don't miss them!
>>32477334>assassin-based oneshot this Sunday!Oh neat, nice thread Merc see you next time
>>32477334We...we got one shotted...My pride! My Balls!
>>32477334Thanks for the run, Merc. Also besides Range if their any weakness the Beam saber has to the beam rifle
>>32477356I mean the beam spear!
>>32477334>assassin-basedLike what kind of assassins are we talking here? Is it the cute kind, the cute-but-also-serious kind, or the regular kind?
