Considering you didn't that much sleep this weekend, you were in typical Monday mode. That is, half dead and not really in a mood to pay attention in class. Fortunately for you, 2/3 of the class was in the exact same situation as you.However, you noticed that there was a lot of mumbling and whispering going around, like some sort of conspiracy was going on and you weren't sure what."Hey, what's going on?" You lean over to Mac. "Are we getting a pop quiz today?""God, I hope not." Mac frowns. "Though from what I can tell, Karen came through for us. We got bumped up to 12th for beating Team Behemoth."(cont)
>>32620670Well, you figure that would be enough to get people talking. A new, unknown team coming out of nowhere to take down an established one? That would catch a lot of people off guard."All right class, settle down." Your homeroom teacher walks in, similarly tired. "There are no major announcements for today, so you have a free period for now."With that, the class bursts into conversation. Of course, the subject was Behemoth's loss to you."I heard they got beat by a GM-""The other team was literally shooting each other...""Ha, only those losers could somehow fuck up a game with a Val Varo.""Hey." One of your classmates, whose name you can't quite recall at the moment, leans in. "Were you at the tournament this weekend?">Yes>No>I totally beat Behemoth.>Other
>>32620678>>I totally beat Behemoth.
>>32620678>I totally beat Behemoth.
>>32620678>YesLeave it at that.
>>32620678>>WE totally beat Behemoth.There is no I in team
>>32620678>>YesOh Merc, you forgot the part which sets up chaff or some sort of protection once per game for our balls and gm
>>32620678>YesAnd before bragging about it, it was a team effort first and foremost.
>>32620678>Yeah, we hunted big game and won.
>>32620678"Oh yeah, I was there. In fact, it was our team that beat Behemoth." You say with a grin."You're shitting me." Your classmate blanches. "Take a look at this." You whip out your cell phone and bring up the picture of you and your fellow teammates at the award ceremony for winning the 3v3.Your classmate's eyes widen in surprise."Oh yeah, and for the record, there WAS a GM in that battle." You say, taking out your Juggler to hammer the point home.Your classmate whips around to tell his buddies what you just told him. They all glance your way for a second before turning back and whispering conspiratorially."Boy, you sure are popular all of the sudden." Mac leans in and grins. "I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not." You grumble."Well, you'll have more friends, right?" Lucina adds helpfully. "Or enemies.""Such a cynic." She sighs.You then see a student dash out the door. Your homeroom teacher doesn't even give him a second glance, so you assume something like that was normal. You don't really pay any more attention to it and just weather the rest of homeroom period until the bell rings. And already, you can see the swarm of students ready to bear down on you...>Well, you guess you can enjoy the spotlight for a bit.>EVADE EVADE EVADE>Other
>>32621055>Well, you guess you can enjoy the spotlight for a bit.you brought this on yourselves, reap what you sow
>>32621055>EVADE EVADE EVADE
>>32621055>>EVADE EVADE EVADE
>>32621055So what's the big deal about us beating Behemoth? Are they incredibly hated around the school? Or is everyone just that thrilled to see some new faces in the Gunpla scene?
>>32621184The fact we did it with a Non-Ace suit impressed everyone.
>>32621055>Well, you guess you can enjoy the spotlight for a bit.The burst of popularity will provide some buffer for inquisitive students once Charlotte visits the school.
>>32621184Its probably the GM
>>32621055>EVADE EVADE EVADESay, Merc, can we stack tech from multiple continuities together on a single gunpla?
>>32621184Yeah, pretty much >>32621203 and>>32621215It's like defeating a tank with only hand-grenades.
>>32621055>>Well, you guess you can enjoy the spotlight for a bit.
>>32621238Its not to hard when the drivers are jacking each other off?
>>32621238ala solid snake?
>>32621259It's also isn't hard when they bring said tank into a dense city.
I stopped following a bit a goes from all the sperg fightinglast thing I remember was picking who goes on what team for the tourney. could somebody be so kind to fill in the gaps for me?
>>32621337Hell, they may as well put a star over where the ammo is...
>>32621055>>EVADE EVADE EVADEZoidburg it
Hey guys, I had a thought. According to the small amount of research I did, the reactive armor on the Zaku Amazing was kitbashed from a plamo tank. So, logically, we could get some T-62 style smoke projectors to lay down concealment when we need to break contact, or conceal one of our balls.
>>32621358if you don't like sperg fighting then why are you on 4chan?
>>32621055>Well, you guess you can enjoy the spotlight for a bit.Be suave,
>>32621401because I've lost control of my life.that and bunch of QMs I follow had to cancel/postpone/become kill
Rolled 2>>32621055Hmmm, seems like we're tied, so it looks like we'll have to resort to a roll off...1. Spotlight2. Evade
>>32621437gay as shit yo
>>32621437>2. EvadeT-this pressure!
>>32621437It's at this moment that remembered that you totally weren't good with crowds and that you were TOTALLY NOT PREPARED FOR THIS."Crap, RUUUUUUUN!" You scream.Fortunately, you manage to make it to the relative safety of first period. You just take a deep breathe and slide into your seat. Lucina and Mac did a good job running interference for you. You'd have to thank them for that later. Pity they had a different first period than you, though.As you start taking stuff out of your backpack, you notice a neatly prepared envelope sitting on your desk. Curious, you pick up and read the letter within.ROOM 303LUNCH PERIODGUNPLA CLUB>Might as well see what this is about.>Fuck 'em.>Other
>>32621437Welp, time to pop off countermeasures and get the fuck outta dodge.
>>32621461Think about it this way, The Demon Lord of the Round Table is intriguing because nobody knew who he was. If we remain obscure and victorious, we'll gain interest.
>>32621385Better idea. Stick them on the Balls and use them to create concealment for us. Then we can chare dramatically out of the smoke, blade in hand, and shank our enemy in the face.
>>32621511>Might as well see what this is about.
>>32621511>>Might as well see what this is about.Let's get this over with.
>>32621511>Might as well see what this is about.11th place, here we come!
>>32621511>>Might as well see what this is about.
>>32621511>>Fuck 'em.We're going to say no anyways.Their rage at being totally snubbed though.Priceless
>>32621511>Might as well see what this is about.We need to build a Gundam Slayer.We need to sit down and figure out the exact weaknesses of the Gunpla Club's builds, then build a team designed specifically to tale them apart.I've already spotted one. Due to heavy use of Gundams they're heavy on beam weapons. This makes ABC a smart investment.
>>32621578this let it happen let the butthurt flow
Oh shit, I realized today we could have about two more beam rifles, one for each ball, and recreated the original auto cannon mount to make even more fire power.2X Beam Rifle and 2xAutocannons for each ball!
>>32621511>Ask the others if they got notesIf not>Fuck 'em.
>>32621511>Might as well see what this is about.Round up the posse.
>>32621511>Fuck 'emThat note doesn't strike me as a request.What do you think, fellow anons?
>>32621511>other>ask if anyone else in our team got one
>>32621511>fuck em up the ass
>>32621522But we are the Solo Wing, not the Demon Lord.
>>32621511You suspect you knew what they wanted. After seeing you were good after all, they wanted to try and recruit you. Well, fuck them. They had their chance. You crumple up the letter and toss it into the trash can. You didn't particularly care if anybody saw you or not. You had no regrets and you get through first period with no problem.During the second period break you cross paths with Karen and manage to stop her and tell her about the note you received."I got the exact same thing." Karen nods."And what did you do with it?" You ask."Tore it up, of course." She says flatly. "I would be disappointed if you didn't either.""Yeah, I pretty much dumped it, too." You shrug. "But why would they reach out to us? We're only 12th place, which in the whole scope if things isn't really that high.""Know thine enemy." Karen says. "They're trying to get a measure of who we are and what we're capable of under the guise of possible recruitment.""You know this for sure?""I've seen them do it before." Karen says darkly. "The Gunpla Club, especially Kenneth, are not the type to swallow their pride easily.">Ah, I see.>Kenneth?>Sounds like you got a past with them.>Other
>>32621916>>Sounds like you got a past with them.
>>32621916>>Kenneth?>>Sounds like you got a past with them.Good thing we told them to piss off
>>32621909...So who is The Demon Lord in the end? Actually don't answer that. It is better if no one knows.>>32621916>>Sounds like you got a past with them.
>>32621916>Kenneth?>Sounds like you got a past with them.Ohh, delicious gossip.
>>32621916>Ah, I see.>Kenneth?>Sounds like you got a past with them.>OtherWhy would they think us a threat?
>>32621916>Kenneth?>Sounds like you got a past with them.Story time, Yeah!>>32621984Sounds like they want to gauge us, to see if we are a threat.
>>32621916>who's Kenneth?>Sounds like you got a past with them.
>>32621940Someone who uses this:
>>32621909Why are people trying to force the Solo Wing Pixy thing on Jack?
>>32622166Belka 4 life!
>>32622166Pixy name is Larry Foulke. Foulke.And name just stuck there.
>>32622166Mostly due to the last name being shared by Larry Foulke (Solo Wing) and the paint scheme we have.Also a few have Headcanoned that Larry is actually our dad.
You know if it's about skill, one would consider the Nu and Hi-Nu possible choices. Sure they're beefy mechs, but the man that piloted them never overly relied on having a big stick above all else, but rather cunning and skill.
>>32622284Hi-Nu with Nu paint scheme? I prefer black than purple.
>>32621916"Kenneth? Sounds like you've got a past with them." You say."You could say that." Karen sighs. "I've known Kenneth since middle school. We were both in our middle school's Gunpla Club, butt... something in him changed. Or maybe it was always there and I just never noticed.""What?" You blink."After a while, Kenneth's tactics started getting more and more ruthless." Karen sighed. "He'd use very unpopular tactics, casually exploit and sacrifice teammates in team battles, anything he could do to get an edge. Eventually, all our team members quit and went their separate way.s. One member was so disillusioned she quit Gunpla entirely.""Seriously?""Yeah..." Karen looks away sadly. "It happened in one game where he used her Gunpla as a shield. The last words I ever heard from her were 'I wish I never got into Gunpla'."At this point you notice your hands were clenched into fists and you have to remind yourself to relax them. You also see Karen's usually cool and stoic demeanor was cracking slightly, revealing genuine sorrow and pain at having to recall that memory.(cont)
>>32622438>not going with a custom paintjob
>>32622465"Hey Karen, I'm sorry if I'm dredging up bad memories...""It's nothing." Karen rubs one of her eyes. "Bad memories make us who we are. They shouldn't be forgotten.""All right." You nod. And let me guess, Kenneth is in this current Gunpla Club.""In it? He's the President of it." Karen shakes her head. "Oh...""Anyways, break's about to end." Karen shakes her head and puts a reassuring hand on your shoulder. "Don't worry about it. Short of beating him in a battle, ignoring him is pretty much the best you can do right now."The next couple of periods seem to fly by and all of a sudden it's already lunch break. As a perk for getting up to 12th place, you actually had the privilege of getting dismissed early or lunch like the upperclassmen, which you were totally going to take advantage of. As you stood in the wonderfully short line, you wonder what you were going to do.>Head to the team room.>Hang out with someone (specify).>Check out any battles at the gym.>Other
>>32622494>>Hang out with someone (specify).Mac, it's time for some Bromance.
>>32622465Welp, we know what must appen to Kenneth. When a man strays from the right path, a kind man needs the courage to raise his fist and correct him.>>32622494>Check out any battles at the gym.
>>32622494>>Head to the team room.
>>32622548You mean more like a BRIGHT SLAP.
>>32622548This needs to happen.Unless he's this quest's Scirocco or Glemy in which case he should just GDIAF
>>32622548>>32622579For man like kenneth, a mere slap won't do.We need to BRIGHT SLAP him with our gunpla. Against whatever haxx gunpla he brings. Imagine GM slapping Freedom and winning.The effect will be satisfying.
>>32622579Funny thing is, Me and My little cousin were trying to watch the first gundam. >>32622494>Head to the team room.Also do you think it's a good idea to add another beam rifle to the Ball and convert the autocannon into it's original mount?
>>32622579Considering that the quote used from Gundm X refers to pretty much exactly that...
>>32622494>>Head to the team room.Everyones there
>>32622494>Hang out with someone (specify).Let's not forget our bro Mac, he needs to make his Maxter more AMURRICA
>>32622494>Check out any battles at the gym.See if the big win we had any immediate impact.
>>32622638More AMERICA you said?http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-50-ae-j
>>32622638Indeed.His mid-season upgrade should include the 2nd Amendment Strike package containing more weapons and guns than actual armor pieces.He will have more guns than the Gundam Super Heavy Tank.
>>32622664>>32622691Please, Mac's suit will never be more American than METAL MERICA!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzqrNGRh8sA
>>32622626Yep, it's the show's way of referencing it, not sure if Jamil ever had to use it on Garrod or not.>>32622494>Check out any battles at the gym.
>>32622494You head over to the team room. However, it seems a bit empty today. Lucina and Mac didn't seem to be present, which was unusual . However, Karen was there, as usual, no doubt handling team affairs. Jake was at one of the modelling tables working on his TUSKER with Amy looking curiously over his shoulder.>Talk to Karen>Talk to Jake>Talk to Amy>Other

>>32622898Changing to >>32622885They might be stuck in an unplanned Gunpla battle
>>32622833Talk to Amy.
>>32622833You decide to give a call to Mac and Lucina to see where they were at. However, neither of them answer their phones. Then again, that shouldn't be surprising. Students were discouraged from using phones on campus, even during break periods. Either that or they were somewhere crowded and simply couldn't hear.Shrugging, to walk over to Amy and tap her on the shoulder to grab her attention. "Oh, Jack! I didn't notice you there!" Amy blinks. "How are things?""Good, I guess." You say. And at this point you realize you don't actually know all that much about her.>Ask about her Gunpla.>Ask about her family. >Ask about that red scarf she wears all the time.>Other
>>32623101>Ask about that red scarf she wears all the time.
>>32623101>>Ask about that red scarf she wears all the time.Are you the Demon Lord to my Pixy?
>>32623101>>Ask about that red scarf she wears all the time.

>>32623145Seems like a legitimate strategy.
Gouf Custom guy here.Just wanted to let you guys know my kits came and I build my first ever. Not to brag, but I think it's safe to say I am already the best at gunpla.
>>32623145Hey maybe we should let them make their own decisions? If they want to go, let them.
>>32623145What if the reason we can't get a hold of them is because they're with the Gunpla Club right now? They could be in their vile clutches as we speak!
>>32623280what has science done

That said, lets get down and dirty questing!
>>32623101"Hey, Amy, why exactly do you wear a red scarf all the time?" You ask curiously. "I mean, it's not even cold. Hell, we live in Southern California. It's NEVER cold here.""Ah, well, it's something I've been wearing since I was a kid." Amy blushes and chuckles lightly. "I got three younger siblings and they really look up to me, and well, I wanted to set a good role model for them!""That... doesn't really explain anything." You frown."Well, everybody knows that red is the color of a hero!" Amy laughs."That's it?" You blink."Shouldn't that be enough?" She grins. "My siblings totally love it!"Well, you guess you really couldn't fault her for that. She was still a bit of an odd one, though.You take a quick glance at your cell phone. You sent Mac and Lucina a text message earlier, but they still haven't responded.>Continue talking with Amy.>Talk with someone else.>Go find Mac and Lucina.>Other

Guys, we need a Gundam designed by Nagano.

>>32623529"Hey Amy, I'm gonna try and find Mac and Lucina. Wanna come with?""Sure!" Amy nods and cheerfully waves goodbye to Jake and Karen as you both leave the team room."So... I assume you're a fan of Gundam Wing." You say."My favorite series!" Amy nods rapidly. "I guess I'm sort of a sucker for a small team of heroes facing impossible odds!""Why Deathscythe, specifically?""Well, I dunno. When I was picking out my first Gunpla, it just sort of well... SPOKE to me, I guess. It's hard to explain, but it felt like I was MEANT to get one, if you know what I mean."You sort of didn't, but you really didn't have a right to call out other people on their Gunpla choices. You got a GM as your first, after all. "And I guess it sorta helps that you totally had a crush on Duo, didn't you?""I-I don't know what you're talking about!" Amy huffs.Yeah, she totally did. Truth be told, when you first saw Wing you probably would've gone gay for Duo, too. WAIT. FOCUS."Seen any other series?""A few." Amy nods. "Um, G, X, SEED, 00, and Unicorn are what I remember off the top of my head right now..."Well, that was a respectable list. Could stand to watch some more UC series though...You've also gotta figure out where Mac and Lucina went off to.>Check the cafeteria. Maybe they're still in line.>Head for the Gunpla Club room.

>>32623867Guy gave us the Qubeley. 'nuff said.

>>32623974that slice of watermelon is pissed
>>32624017Love the Qubeley, hope this shows up in the quest too.
>>32624023It's because it's Japan's favorite Gundam show.Kira Yamato is still one of the most popular characters over there.
>>32623953SEED (the first series) isn't too bad, it's the sequel that takes rancid buffao shits all over things.>>32623974Boy Zeta gundam seems to be a scandal magnet (stuff like accusations of Yukana sleeping with the director to get Four's role over the original VA for the movies)
I'm not a fan of SEED either but I do like some of the suits that came out of it.
>>32623798You know what I'm going to say. You know exactly what I'm going to say. So I'm not going to say it. I'm just going to post it and some videos.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikJjiqBgb78https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUU2UxERkGEThe only fatal weakness is the NT-D system, which we can solve with creative application of other things. Possibly even custom build an NT-D system into it.
>>32623909>Check the gym. Maybe they're just checking out some battles.Watches G and wears a scarf? Is she from the School of the Undefeated of the East?
>>32624136THE SCHOOL OF THE UNDEFEATED OF THE EAST!

>>32623909>>Check the gym. Maybe they're just checking out some battles.If they're not there then we rescue them from the Gundam Club.
>>32624184Who says this?Also when did this happen?
>>32624132That would be stupidly broken.
>>32624184Woops; forgot to delete the quote
>>32624224The suit itself or custom building an NT-D into it? Because the only thing the NT-D does by itself is allow the suit to seize control of enemy funnel weapons. The switch of the Unicorn and Banshee into removed limiters and moar thrusters and weapons is what makes it stupid on them. If it's the suit itself....shenanigans is the name of the game.
>>32624180THE WINDS OF THE KING!>>32624132Installing an NT-D defeats the point of going up against the Gunpla Club.
>>32624224It's also plain stupid.I said this in the last thread and I'll say it again, it'll get REALLY old really quick if we just keep having all our Gunpla use Balls.
>>32624136You know, the Deathscythe Hell's wings do fold around it like the Master's do. There are some definite design similarities. Maybe her upgraded suit will be a Master Scythe or something like that.>>32624132Would your design accept converting the Planet Defensers to serve as reflector bits as well as shields? Because as dumb as I know this is going to sound, there's this one SEED fanfic where Kira has that and it's actually pretty awesome. Instead of providing his own beamspam he just grabs and redirects his enemies' fire. It changes him from just standing back and blasting away to having a more battlefield control-focused fighting style. The shields block off avenues of attack while the reflectors give him incentive to provoke foes into attacking him instead of his teammates. I think that could work really well for our style, too.
>>32624287Please see what I wrote above. What makes the Unicorn and Banshee broken with NT-D is the extra things that are unlocked when it goes NT-D. This would be something we only pull out against another NT-D user. Because without a way to counter it, NT-D royally fucks us and our entire team up the ass without lube.
>>32624224While I don't jive with his Kshatriya obsession, most top-tier Gunpla fighters have shit that just does insane shit with Plavsky particles. Like Sengoku Astray with the pseudo-chinese Ki punches. Hell, I think the only halfway normal top-tier gunpla the series had that was in any way relevant was this sexy sexy beast.So, yes. The only way we'll be able to scratch the top tiers is with broken stuff. The only difference we'd have with the douchebags on the gunpla club would be that we actually play for fun, and not some sort of no-fun tryhard.
>>32624287ZENSHIN!Yeah, go with this to see if we'll elicit the appropriate follow-up response from Amy.Also, this should be playing in the background.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hv-aoeTQZ2M
>>32624325All of my yes. Because this was designed as a Battlefield control/lockdown suit.
>>32624347And sniper K9.I'm more in favour of EXAM, to be honest.
>>32624180>>32624287>>32624348Keiretsu!Also if two "psycoframe" Gunpla clash, is Plavsky Shock a thing here, or did Nils prevent that from happening after the events of the 7GBWC?
>>32623909"Huh, you think they could be at the gym?" You wonder aloud."We might as well check." Amy smiles. "Even if we don't find them there, at least we can catch a battle!""I guess." Your shrug as you make your way towards the gym. "Why a scythe, anyways? Isn't that a weapon typically reserved for evil characters?""Weapons aren't inherently good or evil. Only the people who use them are." Amy says in a lecturing tone. "I guess you have a point there." You concede. "By the way, have you used any of the prize money to upgrade your Deathcscythe?""Oh, I'm thinking on a few things!" Amy grins."Like what?">SCARF OF THE HERO: A scarf composed of memory cloth that hardens when saturated with plavsky particles. In game terms, the scarf can harden into a monomolecular blade capable of cutting through even Gundanium.>MASS DRIVER UPGRADE: Replaces the Rozen gunscythe's chemical propulsion system with a magnetic rail, greatly increasing firepower and accuracy.>ROSE PETALS: Four large free floating panels that can act as protection against most attacks. Beam resistant.
>>32624287perhaps, though not sure how successful it'd be in the first place.What is for sure is thinking of an upgrade line of progression as the GM juggler is something with limited potential. I'm tempted to suggest making a modified Ex-S Gundam (one of the strongest old type remote suits never known to the greater bulk of history)>>32624347Not sure if this quest actually uses Plaviosky tech at all as we haven't seen much sign of it and it seems the Gunpla club is using stock builds of 'op' gundams.
>>32624287ZENSHIN!>>32624284If anything, get the parts from the Rozen Zulu, especially something like those hampering devices.And we'd be the most fabulous fucker around.
>>32624347I respect that you don't jive with my Kshatriya obsession. I just think that it's the most overlooked suit in the franchise. I mean, because of the fact that the two of the three times it fought, it fought against the Unicorn which is basically it's hard counter.
>>32624381>>ROSE PETALS: Four large free floating panels that can act as protection against most attacks. Beam resistant.
>>32624381>SCARF OF THE HEROTHIS
>>32624388...I'd actually like to get a Rozen Zulu now that you mention it. Angelo may have been a massive cockbag but I rather liked the Rozen Zulu.
>>32624381>>SCARF OF THE HERO: A scarf composed of memory cloth that hardens when saturated with plavsky particles. In game terms, the scarf can harden into a monomolecular blade capable of cutting through even Gundanium.A touch of personalization to teh mech.>>32624388I wonder how it'd compare to the Ex-S Gundam, both being old type remote MS (though I wouldn't be surprised if the Ex-S was stronger as the Z/ZZ era had suits with a concentration of power/performance) while CCA/UC had suits focused on ease of prodcution/etc (I.e. the mook suits in CCA were weaker than the top stuff in ZZ but were generally more affordable/etc)
>>32624381>>SCARF OF THE HERO: A scarf composed of memory cloth that hardens when saturated with plavsky particles. In game terms, the scarf can harden into a monomolecular blade capable of cutting through even Gundanium.muh foreshadowing

>>32624381>SCARF OF THE HERO
>>32624387You only say it had limited potential because you believe it to be. This is a universe where as long as you put work into your Gunpla, it can even be on the same terms as a Gundam,At least that's what I believe, I want to see how far our Juggler can go.
>>32624439>>32624440>>32624455>>32624469She's going to be more Lisa-Lisa than MASTER ASIA
>>32624434I'd actually been thinking about replacing the manipulator arms in the wings with the claws off the Rozen Zulu. I mean those wings are fucking massive.
>>32624381>>ROSE PETALS: Four large free floating panels that can act as protection against most attacks. Beam resistant.You guys know what this is?Rho Aias
>>32624487The very concept is flawed and in-universe they admitted it and held off until they got their hands on zeon's research which eventually yielded incoms, seen in S/Ex-S Gundams, Droven Wolves, Sliver Bullets, and of course the Rozen Zulu.
>>32624381>SCARF OF THE HERO>>32624496This is also acceptable, because Lisa-Lisa was second best girl, Joseph being best girl of course.
>>32624381>ROSE PETALS: Four large free floating panels that can act as protection against most attacks. Beam resistant.These all sound pretty awesome, and she should definitely get them all eventually. But for now she needs defense. She's doing okay for weapons, but she could stand to have some more defense.Actually, a thought occurs to me: How do solid ammunition weapons work in Gunpla Battle? It's not like the model kits have little tiny bullets included. Magazines, yeah, and often times individual missiles, but no bullets. Are they just Plavsky constructs like the terrain is? How does the game know how much ammo you have left, then?
>>32624387A modified GM and a Kampfer made it to the semi-finals in the 7GBWCWell built, customized Gunpla will beat stock Gundam Gunpla builds
>>32624381>SCARF OF THE HERO>Wrap scarf around the enemy head.>Harden.>Instant decapitation.Gundam Fight International Treaty Article One!
>>32624435Ex-S was fucking broken in the end, considering it had an AI aboard that controlled the INCOMs, was transformable, and had that sweet gun.> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVyoKTJSmpg
>>32624577GMs by themselves and Kampfers are pretty sound designs, the same can't be said of the Juggler. And let's not lie about why the Juggler was choosen "Uh uh uh Balls Uh uh uh" "Yeah, Balls! Heh heh"
>>32624615I believe it also counts as an MA too though which is a little unfun for competitors.>>32624626God dammit, we deploy the balls as soon as we launch. Theres nothing that says we can't carry a normal GM variant loadout like a sniper rifle or a striker weapon.
>>32624615it was strong but also tactically rich in options, but in the mind of most power hungy players/etc it goes ignored because it wasn't animated.It'd be moronic to limit our options just to prove some point. That and what better to take down heavily hyped OP mechs than a 'forgotten' mech?
>>32624534Seems more appropriate for a custom Qubeley though
>>32624535We don't need to use incoms at all, since Gunpla Battle doesn't care if you're a Newtype when it comes to remote weapons. Likewise, any technology is really just there as inspiration to help guide our building. We can build machines that have no equivalent in the franchise. Let's build something awesome, and to hell with the canon. I mean, look at what Amy's upgrades are. None of that has any basis in the show. If you want to ditch the Balls, go ahead. I have no particular attachment to them. But don't discount them because in-character they're bad.
>>32624626But they are effective and helped us through several matches and our firesupport.They work
>>32624674IC wise they're not too terrible either.When even char finds fighting them a pain, I think we've got something interesting on our hands.
>>32624381>SCARF OF THE HEROWith some skill this could probably be used for defense too. Take beams at an angle and not straight on.
>>32624730So reflect beam shots around corners?
>>32624434>>32624511Here we are. Make shift size comparison photo.
>>32624662You mean the Deep-S, when it was basically lugging a mini Dendrobium as its backpack?
>>32624662You're thinking of the Deep Striker variation, not the normal Ex-S, which never exceeded a normal 0087 mech size.Sooner or later the balls must return to the main suit to recharge and the balls are big targets compared to an incom.>>32624674I say incoms as it's an extension of the GM Juggler concept but refined/enhanced.>>32624696For now, but as it gets more famous, people will find counter measures. Only reason they're doing so well is that the people we've faced aren't used to remotes and let's not forget how Char turned the whole ball thing against us (throwing one of them back at us)>>32624751The Kshatriya isn't that big compared to its ancestor (the Quin Matha, which was pretty large)
>>32624773Oh yea... sorry, mixed up my suits.
>>32624751Sexy kits; but they need more missiles.
Rolled 1>>32624381So we've ended up with a tie! So it's time for a tiebreaker!1. Scarf2. Petals
>>32624750That'd be cool if it doesn't take too much of a durability hit.Now I'm starting to think of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSyhR5MLt7A
>>32624790>Sooner or later the balls must return to the main suit to recharge and the balls are big targets compared to an incom.Thats the thing. They dont. They have their own reactors since they're suits by themselves. Truely independent weapons.
>>32624790But they work and we were focused on Lucina, Even Char had a hard time even though she was holding back, she agreed with our concept. It's hard to find some counter measures and if they do we'll deal with them as they come, but we have a decent system going right now and when we custom build our GM to a Nemo, GMIII, or whatever we have more potential to be better. Also your argument is also moot when concerned to our other teammates who uses the same model but add stuff to make it better.
>>32624816Damn.I think the scarf needs to wielded with hands which means she wont be using her scythe
>>32624816>Scarf wonoh well. still coolmakes more sense in context given the conversation we just had too.

It's like that except MS sized.""Holy crap." "Hehehhe." Amy chuckles.You finally reach the gym, where you see it's packed to the brim with students.

>>32624790>>32624806I'm just pointing out that you can pretty much fit anything and everything including the kitchen sink in those wings. Here's the suits full armament. Beam Saber The Kshatriya is armed with a total of six beam sabers for melee combat. Two are located in the forearms to allow for quick responses to close combat threats and can be used as beam gun when stored, while the remaining four are hidden — together with four sub-arms — in the Kshatriya's binders. Machine Cannon Weapons that fire live ammunition, they are mounted in the chest, between the Mega Particle Cannons. These are used mostly to intercept small missiles. Funnels The Kshatriya is armed with a grand total of twenty-four funnels for all-range attacks. Each funnel possesses a powerful beam gun that is capable of melting an enemy mobile suit's armor. Six are stored within each of the Kshatriya's four binders, and are remotely controlled primarily through use of the psychoframe-equipped cockpit. These funnels are used primarily to allow the Kshatriya to engage large numbers of enemies at the same time, or to allow it to overwhelm a powerful foe. However, they are shown to be vulnerable to the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam's NT-D System. Mega Particle Cannon The Kshatriya is armed with an incredible twelve mega particle cannons. Four are mounted on the chest, giving the Kshatriya great firepower in its forward arc. They can be fired together to create a single and very powerful linked beam, or to fire a scattering beam in a manner similar to a shotgun. Two more of these cannons are mounted on each binder, allowing the Kshatriya to fight off enemies from virtually any direction. Beam Gatling Gun To further increase its firepower, the Kyshatriya can equip up to six beam gatling guns. In addition to this I'm suggesting we add the following: cont.

>>32624916Planet Defensors A weapon that is controlled by the pilot and is used to defend the Mercurius or any other mobile suit from a impending attack. They are small disc-shaped objects which are capable of generating an almost-impenetrable energy shield. They are able to repel just about any attack, even from the buster rifle of the XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero. (Upgrade these to also function as reflectors to focus and bounce beams across the battlefield in ways the opponent will never suspect.) INCOM Claw These are the main weaponry of the Rozen Zulu, each equipped with a pair of mega beam cannons of adjustable output. Each of these "claws" are wire-guided and controlled by the quasi-psycommu system. (Use four of these in the wings replacing the wing manipulators. Trust me, they'll fit.)

From what it looks like, the red Zaku was facing off against a Gundam Virsago. From how the Zaku moved, it was pretty evident that it was Charlotte behind the controls. However, you couldn't waste time asking what she was doing here.>roll 1d20
>>32625050It's a nice suit and a great doomsday weapon/ trump card, but we are way too early in to be thinking about it right now.
>>32625050Due to not knowing Gundam, I'm refraining from any votes when it comes to building/modifying our Gunpla.
>>32625050I'd still rather get something else OTHER than a Kshatriya to be honest.

>>32625076And sure enough, you catch sight of Mac and Lucina at the back. However, they don't seem to happy. Rather, they look sort of annoyed and you can see why. They were semi-cornered by three other students, who were saying something to them.

>>32625112Eh, I'm kind of leaning for the Nemo or GMIII but I don't mind a Jesta or Jegan, I just want to see how far our suit can go and kind of prove Char wrong that despite it all, we can use our suit to go above and beyond

>>32625147>Get closer to eavesdrop. Maybe subtlety signal them that we've got their backs?
>>32625106Couldn't care less even if you were president of the universe. I'm pretty sure most people here don't like to be railroaded on to someone else's hard-on. I think it's best if we keep our options open until everyone knows what they want.I just hope it doesn't get as bad as the waifu wars of Valk Mercs. I know Merc Command still remembers those days "fondly".
>>32625104The reason I suggest the Kshatriya is it is the logical conclusion of the play style that we're using. Seriously. If we include the Balls (and we can not do that as well, though they'd make excellent recon and relay units allowing us to laser comm, ECM, ECCM, jam, and spy) that's a total of 52 sub-units. The reflection upgrade, combined with the sheer versitility of the Planet Defensors allows us to have an unparalleled level of battlefield control. And against shit like the Gunpla club, that is going to be ABSOLUTELY essential.
>>32625147>Get closer to eavesdropLet's get eyeballs on the situation first. That way if it spitballs, Jack'll be on hand for back-up.
>>32625218Personally I'd love to use it one day; but our character is going to have a hard time setting his GM aside and learning to have fun with such an overpowered kit.
>>32625147Also, Mac and Lucina are plenty mean enough to handle themselves. Let's trust our team, yeah?
>>32625214I'm just laying out an option and the pros of said option. If the rest of the players decide they don't want to follow that option, then I can't really do much about that, and I'll still participate as much as I can. No need to be snide.
>>32625214As mean as this sounds Kshatriya guy, I'm gonna have to agree on the railroading thing.I like Kshatriya but at this point, it seems like you're trying to shove it down our throats and I'm not gonna lie, it's starting to get a little annoying.
>>32625218But it's so much bulkier looking though. I can see it but it seems I don't know kind of overpowered.Their is nothing wrong with it I guess. It just seems like something like is used to overwhelm someone and not for fun.
>>32625290Very well. I've said my piece. I will continue to suggest it when the topic comes up but it'll just be a simple suggestion.
>>32625287Stop shoving it down everyone's throats then.
>>32625218I agree with you, for the most part. It would serve the role we're building to quite nicely. But I don't really like the Kshaitraya. It's so bulky, and not very maneuverable. I'd rather have a sleeker suit. Something like the Strike Freedom, actually, just changed to fit our play style instead of being beamspammy. Though that could be too close to the Gunpla Club's style. We're the GM guy now, we've established a reputation.
>>32625352I wouldn't say it'd be very unmaneuverable as those 'wings' serve as extra thrusters, though Mirida's style seems to lean on funnels.
>>32625147"HEY! MAC! LUCINA! WHAT'S UP!?" You yell loudly as you brush past the three students. You carefully note the Gunpla Club badges they're wearing proudly on their shirts. Not very subtle, these guys..."It's nothing really." Lucina says."We're in the middle of Club business." One of the Club members sneers at you."What kind of business?""None of yours."Okay, now these guys were getting to be really annoying.>Come on, let's get the hell out of here.>Well it is my business now.>Looks like somebody here needs a Bright Slap...>Other
>>32625218While you are very excited about this, and the Kshatriya is really nice (I have two HGs myself) trying to push too hard an agenda will only turn other questers off it.
>>32625382>Come on, let's get the hell out of here.
>>32625312Ok. You know what. Fine. I'll bite. Apart from the fact that I'm laying out reasoning behind my suggestion, like any good brainstorming session, where exactly am I shoving it down your throat? I have not once said that "No, your idea sucks, we totally shouldn't do that." All I've said is "This is my idea, here's why I suggest it, and here's some additional ideas I had on how it can be tinkered with." Same as everyone else in the thread, with the Jega, the Jesta, the Delta Kai, the GM-III, and the NEMO and the several other dozen suggestions that have been put forth.

>>32625382>Well it is my business now.Fuck it. They get up our grill, we'll shove the Balls down their throat. Sware on me mum.
>>32625434No one has rarely said a ball joke after the first couple of thread. I;m supporting the use of them since I find them interesting and the Ai system interesting,I'm sorry but I can't help but be annoyed that despite their use, people refer to them as a joke
>>32625434We're not even that hung up on balls.We see it as a viable versertile weapons platform.
>>32625382>Other"Look, if you want to talk to someone don't corner them like this. It just makes you seem skeezy. Come on, let's all go find somewhere to sit down so you look less like jackals."

>>32625434When was last time someone really made a bloody ball joke?Plus, if you haven't noticed, they been pretty damn useful in our fights.
>>32625477That's why I'm suggesting what I'm suggesting in the first place.
>>32625440>>32625490Let's not overreact yet, it's not like the jerk said we had a girl's name
>>32625505Yes at a none stop pace. Give it a rest.
I personally just plain don't like the Balls.And I'd much rather use something else in the future that doesn't use them.
>>32625505True, but from what I have read and the systems of it, it seems like a but overpowered almost like a mobile armor in which Jack himself thinks is a little distasteful. Also it looks rather bulky. I'm not sure. I guess it doesn't appeal to me. I'm Sorry
>>32625528Fine, it's not my fault that the ideas come to me like lightning bolts. Do I at least get to restate my idea once a thread when the topic of suit options comes up?
>>32625529That's great, you've been voicing this none stop like Namefags and his little idea. But like him you seem to be really the only one and it seems when ever the word 'balls' is said you get your panties in a bunch. It's not helping you.
>>32625382>>Come on, let's get the hell out of here.The club meeting has started.
>>32625569Nah, I don't like the idea of Balls being in our Gunpla progression either. Its a novel idea, and I don't really mind seeing it a couple more times in some other new gunpla idea of ours, but at some point it'll start getting stale.
>>32625556Sure, man. Personally, I don't find your pitching the Kshatriya as annoying as the other guys do. I like discussing hypothetical builds. But it's getting on their nerves, so maybe it's best if you stop for now.
>>32625552Nah it's fine, like I stated above I'm just laying out an option. But honestly, most of the Funnel/Bit using suits are pretty bulky. And the ones that aren't usually don't carry many of them, and with a strategy like that, it's kinda like tokens in MtG or Purifiers in 40k, it's either all in or not at all.
>>32625556Honestly, I think you're letting yourself get too attached to the idea. Remember, we're not trying to insult you if someone says they don't like/agree with it.
>>32625477then why are people so against progressing to a me refined version of the concept? It's like comparing a spear made from a bamboo shoot to a european masterpiece crafted in peak era of spears.>>32625599I think sooner or later we'd need to move away from balls
>>32625382If we can find a way to combine >Well, it's MY business nowSome snappy quip and>Come on, let's get the hell outta hereThat'd be cool. In a way, it's telling the Gunpla Club they ain't shit to us.
>>32625612Sorry, tokens was a bad example. Mill or Infect would be a better one.
>>32625382"Come on guys, let's get the hell out of here." You say, pushing past the Club goons and creating a gap for Mac and Lucina to follow you through. While you had no doubt Mac and Lucina could handle themselves, "handling", especially in Lucina's terms, usually equated to "beating the shit out someone." You did not want to see either of your friends getting suspended."This isn't over." You hear the Club goon scowl. You just ignore him and keep going."What the hell was that all about?" You ask."Eh, they were just trying to shake us down for info." Mac shook his head. "You know, what kind of Gunpla we used, who was on our team, stuff like that.""We didn't tell them anything, by the way.""I appreciate that." You nod."Man, that's no heroic at all." Amy frowns. "Got half a mind to teach them a lesson or three.""Maybe another time, Amy." You chuckle.There's another, louder cheer and that's when you realize the battle is over. Of course, Charlotte's gunpla won, and the Virsago lays in a smoking heap. Too bad you missed it. It seemed like an awesome battle.Suddenly, the bell rings, signifying the end of lunch break.>Better head back to class.>Try to meet Charlotte.>Other
>>32625639>Better head back to class.we can shoot her a text to swing by the clubroom after school
>>32625639>>Try to meet Charlotte.
>>32625639>Better head back to class
>>32625639>Othersee if we can give Charlotte a quick thumbs up while we head back to class.
>>32625619To what then, bits? Funnel?Those are more a downgrade compared to the balls in firepower and independence.
>>32625639>Better head back to class.
>>32625639>Head back to class.Come on, we're still students with responsibilities.
>>32625661>>32625639Yeah, I'll support that.
>>32625639>Better head back to class.>Try to meet Charlotte.>OtherMessage Char with our cellphone, meetup at the hobby shop after school
>>32625639>>Better head back to class.Don't want to get in trouble>>32625619I honestly want to see how far we can go with the Juggler system though
>>32625613I'm not insulted by the people telling me that they don't like/don't agree with the idea. That's part of proper discourse is being like "I see your idea. I don't like it and here's why."What I'm insulted by is being told I'm shoving the idea down other peoples throats. I've done nothing of the sort. I've merely layed out an idea, some extended ideas based on thoughts of myself and some other people in the thread. I've not said anything about "No your idea sucks and mine is much better." or "That's a stupid idea."
>>32625666Different anon here, true, but bits/funnels are more mobile at the cost of carrying capacity and firepower compared to balls.
>>32625666We could also...NOT use funnels, bits or remote weapons at all.Sure, we've made good use of them so far but that doesn't mean we'll be fucking useless without them.
>>32625639>>Better head back to class.
>>32625639>Try to meet Charlotte.
>>32625666Fin funnels are probably just as effective, or maybe the FA Unicorn shield funnels if that's your thing
>>32625639>Better head back to class.Text Charlotte, though.
>>32625695Yeah, but I LIKE the wolf pack idea that we have going right now. It's not something you see and has been fun to use in the matches so far. I would like to see how far we can push that.
>>32625406You know what I really want to see? Build Boosters. Like the ones most major GBF characters had in some form. We could have a completely different fighting style based on whether or not the booster is equipped.
>>32625692But they lack firepower and I'm not sure you can use them in scouting?Also the Ball has saved our butts one or two times.I'm not sure the bit or funnel will do the same
>>32625692>>32625695Or....we could go...full retard.
>>32625695The problem is that our fighting style is going to get dependent on having covering fire from support units. If we're going to ditch remote weapons, we should do it now before we get reliant on them.
>>32625689Yes, you merely laid down the idea, but bring it up /every thread/. You are not a good salesman. Stop.
>>32625639>Shake us down for info, find out what we used, etc.These bitches don't know bout streams or archives.
>>32625689Jesus christ.Then here, I'll satisfy your masochism. It sucks.Now can you just put a sock in...ah fuck it. I guess this is where the filter comes in handy.
>>32625745We really should get a "Back up" suit to ween us.
>>32625722I think it's pretty neat as well, I'm not gonna lie.I'm just saying that we won't be terrible without them since that's an impression I've been getting from a few of the other posters.
>>32625749This mate, right here. You do none stop every thread nearly the entire thread. It has gotten old.
>>32625745You kind of say that as a bad thing also we held our own even in single combat?Also the GM is versatile as well so it can respond according to the situation
>>32625639>Better head back to classGotta school>>32625741As the person who built that spindly Gouf earlier (for funsies/ a joke) I approve of this madness.
>>32625749No. I will tone it down however. You don't like my idea. I get that. Now apart from "I don't like it." can you use your words and explain why?
>>32625728Something like IWSPs which can be operated remotely, or have different weapon loadouts.
>>32625799This is why we can't have MGs for this, it would be too heavy.
>>32625782Fine. I'll stick to once a thread if/when the topic of suit upgrades is brought up.
>>32625776But that's thing we've proven to be good with the suit. Both range and melee combat. The extra guys we bring into the fight just stacks the odds a bit more. Adding more weight of fire from us. I really don't want to see that going away just because people think it's a stupid gimmick or something when we've proven thus far that it works.
>>32625752Yeah. They can still get more info from talking to us than looking at the footage, but come on. The internet exists. I've seen what modern LP culture is like, there is absolutely no way in hell that there's a single Gunpla Battle that DOESN'T get put up on Youtube. >>32625798Oh, I have no objection to our current style. I was just saying that in response to the guy who wanted to change to a no remote weapons build. If we want to do it, we need to do that now, because it won't matter if the GM can adapt if we can't. At the very least we would have to switch off between the two builds every so often so we get equal experience with both.
>>326258071. The thing is ugly.2. You're being an annoying retard, which is a great way to get everyone to hate you and your ideas on principle.
>>32625639As much as you would have liked to meet up with Charlotte, you were still a student, and therefore still had obligations to fulfill, like getting to class on time. You reluctantly head to your next period, but you make sure to pass by Charlotte, who's packing up her Zaku. You see a large VISITOR badge pinned to her shirt, explaining why she was here. You give her a smile and a thumbs up and she smiles back and gives you a small wave.And it's back to class. Honestly, it's the same old boring crap as always, but you power through it. Finally, the final bell rings and the students begin to disperse, eager to get this Monday over with. You know most of your team would probably be heading to the Hobby Shop, and you'd probably see Charlotte there, too. However, you were pretty damn tired and a little eager to go straight home.You then get a text from Karen saying she's going to be staying in the team room for a little longer and not to wait for her. Huh, that was a bit odd. She was always punctual and rarely changed plans last minute.>Head for the Hobby Shop>Head home. >Head for the team room.>Other
>>32625807First of all, I like your idea.Secondly, I and other anons are repulsed by you sperging the same statements over and over again. This is not the time vote for your MS, especially since everyone already knows what you want.

>>32625881>>32625859That's fair enough.

Beam Rifle 2X (400)Beam Spear (150)OptionalHeat Knife (50)Panzefaust 3X (150)Improve our melee and increase the firepower of our BallGood idea?
>>32625966I still don't see why we need the beam spear when we made a point to stay away from melee when we can. When we do go into melee we tend to smash into the opponents so they can't get away. A spear is just counter productive in my eyes for the way we fight.
>>32625966>>32626005Also, wouldn't we have to drop the twin-auto cannons for the beam rifles? Unless we can twin-link the rifles onto the units.
>>32625966>>32626005So how do they prevent beam spears being cut at the handle?
>>32626005Plus, if we end upgrading to a GM III, we get one for free.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3jNep1Ywc8
>>32626005But the spear gives us more range, if we need to have some distance, it will be ideal wouldn't it?Also what about the other choices then?
>>32626005How about a Dedede warhammer?
>>32625966Certainly has potential. Another possibility would be to pick up either the shield/sword/rifle/arrow thing from the Blitz or the G-N Blade III from the Exia instead of the Beam Spear and Beam Rifles. You know, versatility and all that nonsense.
>>32626035My plan was to have the auto cannons remounted back to their original for while the beam rifles become the new arms.>>32626041I was kind of hoping for something like this>>32626043 anon posted.but if we don't want the spear, I can wait until we kitbash our GM in which has two free melee spots
>>32626068Problem with the Trikeros (that's the name of the combo weapon the Blitz uses) is that putting all your weapons in your shield means you can't counter attack while blocking. Maybe if we had two of them it could work.
>>32626068Merc;s list is kind of simple and we just bought a new and stronger shield. I'm willing to drop the spear but can we at least buy the new beam rifle and the heat knife/panzerfaust, since both don't need a hard point
>>32626076>My plan was to have the auto cannons remounted back to their original for while the beam rifles become the new arms.Huh? Okay you're losing me here. Right now we have this:>DAKKA BALL>T: 0>A: 4>S: 0>Gear:>Beam Rifle>Twin Autocannons>Panzerfaust x3We ripped the arms off to put the rifle and twin-cannons on them. And you want to put another rifle on them but where the hell you do want to put the guns? Because we're out of space on these guys.
>>32626102That's good idea, I'd just worry about range of motion. Though to be fair, most of our first move is to detach the balls and move them out so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Hey guys, what if we equipped our RB-79s with Mirage Colloid Stealth Systems?
>>32626106Well the Triskeros is a beam saber, beam rifle, kinetic weapon platform and shield on one hard point, and taking two of them means we don't have to worry about anything. It'd probably be on the expensive side if it was on Mercs list. I don't know, I'm just working with what I have.
>>32626116Originally the autocannnons were twin mounted on top on the Ball where the beam rifle is now.My plan was to put the autocannons back into its twin mounted form and use the beam rifles as the arms where the autocannons are currently being used,
>>32626052May I ask what this is?
>>32625872>Team roomStuff's odd. Also, let's swing by the Hobby Shop so we can discuss what happened earlier.
>>32625872You decide to head for the Hobby Shop. Of course, you need to pick up Holly as well, so the other go on ahead of you. "So how was your day today, Holly?" You ask."Booooooring, like always." Holly grumbles. I already finished all my homework for the week so I've got nothing to do now.""Wait, what, seriously?""It's not my fault my teachers post all the assignments in advance!" Holly pouts. "Then it makes me obligated to finish as much as possible!""Okay..." You shake your head. "How about Gunpla?""Eh, I guess I can try to keep my build skills sharp." Holly shrugs. "Heck, maybe I can make a cool upgrade for your GM. Unless you want me to do it for one of your friends, or something.">My GM could use an overhaul.>I think you should work on another gunpla.

>>32626254Check our the crossbone gundam ball variant.It mounts a rail system on the top of the ball for 3 guns.Thats what I want to work towards.
>>32626238Well I mean if we're going to go for full Stealthu Modo, we might as well just equip the GM with it too and give it a sniper rifle.
>>32626265Ah... Kirby. Last game I played of that was on GB... Just the GB.
>>32626286Well I'm not sure about that yet but we can add two beam rifles and two auto cannons for our Dakka balls, giving it more fire power.so please vote for my suggestion

>>32626327But we already kick them around! Isn't that good enough?
>>32626291We could, but that would alter our playstyle. Stealth Balls however would make for highly effective recon, and great for harassing enemies through Mirage Colloid Teleport shenanigans.
>>32626215>>32626275>>32626340Now, I'm not one to call samefagging, but this seems rather suspect.
>>32626327Anything like Jat Kittag from Warframe in Gundam or no?
>>32626363I almost want to install trans-am on the balls.Hi speed wrecking balls
Guys. Please. No more Balls.For the love of Jesus Yamato, let's move on to something else already! There are many ways we can upgrade our GM, or even build a new suit, but PLEASE, enough with the fucking Balls.
>>32626383And yeah that's a big ass thruster on it.>>32626391You know what? At this point I'll just keep voting for the balls out of spit.
>>32626391sorry man but there are two awesome things about the balls. 1, they are delightfull little gun platforms, we are carrying like six more guns than we could otherwise thanks to them. 2, we get to make stupid jokes.
>>32626403And an 'e' got dropped. Whatever.
>>32626168"I guess my GM could use an overhaul." You say."Okay!" Holly grins. "HOBBY SHOP HO!""Anyways, how are you paying for all this?" You raise an eyebrow."Dummy, from why tournament winnings, of course!" Holly chuckles."Ah.""So, what do you want?"

>nobody likes the EZ8...
>>32627097It shouldn't at all. Unless you go with the Cannon version.
>>32627097Will need to ask merc if the balls occupy the shoulder hardpoints.Also with our ability, we're better off specing a close combat tupe jesta.
>>32627129Everyone on the team save Tusker is CQC focused.We really REALLY need to not go that route unless we end up picking up some auxillery teammates that are more shooty than stabby.

>>32627355So, we're getting the upgrade, right Merc?
>>32627368That's more pilot skill though.
>>32627363"I could use some sort of system upgrade." You say."Oh... OH OH OH!" Holly grins. "I GOT SO MANY IDEAS FOR THAT!">TRIPLE GN DRIVE: Mounts a GN drive on the GM Juggler as well as the Balls.>ZERO SYSTEM NETWORK: When activated, the GM Juggler and its Balls are temporarily taken over by an extremely efficient AI program.>NANOMACHINE REGENERATION SYSTEM: Allows the GM Juggler and its Balls to slowly regenerate damage over time.>DESTROYER MODE: Greatly increases the performance of the GM Juggler and its Balls, and automatically activates a full body I-Field.>PLAVSKY NEUTRALIZER: Since special systems work by charging Plavsky Particles with a certain energy wavelength, the Plavsky Neutralizer is designed to emit the opposite wavelength of energy, effectively cancelling out special Plavsky Effects.>OTHER: Whatever your imagination can think of. Within reason, of course.
>>32627526>>PLAVSKY NEUTRALIZEREMP is a go.
>>32627526>DESTROYER MODEThe Neutralizer wouldn't be bad, but I like Destroyer Mode more.
>>32627526>PLAVSKY NEUTRALIZERNo Super mode for you
Rolled 6>>32627526>>NANOMACHINE REGENERATION SYSTEM: Allows the GM Juggler and its Balls to slowly regenerate damage over time.
Rolled 10>>32627526>>TRIPLE GN DRIVE: Mounts a GN drive on the GM Juggler as well as the Balls.Mwahahah
>>32627526>DESTROYER MODE: Greatly increases the performance of the GM Juggler and its Balls, and automatically activates a full body I-Field.
>>32627526Any way we could get a stunning capability to disable an enemys gunpla or at least its weapon systems?We need a trump card.
>>32627526>PLAVSKY NEUTRALIZERAll the yes!
>>32627526>>DESTROYER MODEWill the Juggler suddenly expand and a V-fin pop out of nowhere?
What;s an I-field and GN Drive?
>>32627526>TRIPLE GN DRIVEYes pleaseCan we get some of these other systems later on ourselves?
>>32627526>>PLAVSKY NEUTRALIZERSo this is basically an Anti-Super mode?I like it. Plus it's the perfect counter to the Gunpla Club's super powerful bullshit right out of the Gate tactics.
AWACS: "Codename: Morgan. This suit is protected by an ECM defense system. It's only weakpoint is in...."
>>32627526>DESTROYER MODEThat I-Field alone is worth it.But the trump card neutralizer is oh so tempting as well.You're pampering us real good, Merc. I love it.Other: DG Cells, Berserker System, Metal Peel Off Effect, Wings of Light
>>32627593>>32627608What is an I-Field and GN Drive?
>>32627526>DESTROYER MODE: Greatly increases the performance of the GM Juggler and its Balls, and automatically activates a full body I-Field
>>32627526Oh, so many awesome ideas. These are all so tempting. Though I'm worried by the thought that Holly can build some of these. Where did she get access to Zero System-level fire control AI?I have a few questions before I make a choice, though. Firstly, what effect would mounting GN Drives actually have? Would it be an all around boost in performance because we've got better reactors, that sort of thing? Secondly, would nanomachines actually repair the gunpla, or just patch holes with solid Plavsky constructs like the arena is made from? Thirdly, would the Plavsky Neutralizer affect our allies as well as our enemies, or is it more selective?
>>32627526>>TRIPLE GN DRIVE: Mounts a GN drive on the GM Juggler as well as the Balls.I'd rather have an overall boost (and allowing more powerful weapon mounts on to the Balls) than a situlational thing that'll rarely get used.
Rolled 4>>32627526>>TRIPLE GN DRIVE: Mounts a GN drive on the GM Juggler as well as the Balls.Activate each individually or together.more flexible.
>>32627526>TRIPLE GN DRIVE: Mounts a GN drive on the GM Juggler as well as the Balls.Gotta go with the GN drives. They're such a massive upgrade in general terms.I'm leery of situational things.
>>32627615An I-field is an anti laser barrier and the GN Drive is a heatless limitless engine that the Gundams in 00 used
>>32627526>DESTROYER MODE: Greatly increases the performance of the GM Juggler and its Balls, and automatically activates a full body I-Field.I recall right, the I-field is like anti-beam or anti-particle shield. Plus we get a general performance boost on top of that.
>>32627592In Universal Century, I-Field negates beam weapons. Basically, force fields.GN Drives are what powers the Gundams in Gundam 00. It scatters particles that screw up radar and detection, can be condensed into beam weaponry, or concentrated into the mobile suit to improve its performance within a set time limit (Trans-Am).
>>32627526>>DESTROYER MODE: Greatly increases the performance of the GM Juggler and its Balls, and automatically activates a full body I-Field.then more offensive power
>>32627615I-Fields block beam weapons. ALL beam weapons. You can go up to battleship main cannons and it still gets deflected, if you devote enough power to it. Melee and ranged, too. One notable suit with an I-Field, the Crossbone X3, takes advantage of this to parry beam sabers with its bare hands. They're worthless against solid weapons, though, and while they can't be penetrated they can be overloaded and forced to shut down.GN Drives are the super engines that the suits in 00 use. They produce tons of power, scramble any sensors in a wide area, double as reactionless thrusters, and at high enough outputs can allow for teleportation. That last one requires specialized equipment that it's not clear if we'd get, though.
>>32627526>>TRIPLE GN DRIVE: Mounts a GN drive on the GM Juggler as well as the Balls.
>>32627526>>DESTROYER MODE: Greatly increases the performance of the GM Juggler and its Balls, and automatically activates a full body I-Field.Balls and Juggler with I-Field, it will boost up our defenses and increase the survivability of our balls
>>32627698Only when we have it activated though, I'd rather an always on boost
>>32627681Hell, we get defense out that option too.Think about that with the balls. We could activate just one of them and have it go tank a lot of beam weapon shots for us.
/r/ final destination merc, to confirm
>>32627710That is a good point. They'd effectively become shield funnels, that way. Though GN Drives can also block beams with their particle exhaust, so that could also work out well for us.
...I must admit, I'm slightly disappointed that not many people want to go for the Plavsky Neutralizer.It'd ensure that no one could pull any super mode bullshit on us and the Moonlight Butterfly would be useless against us I'm presuming.Ah well, I GUESS an overall boost is fine too I GUESS.
>>32627526OtherMaster Doll System. Improves the performance and reactions similar to pilots into AI, also give them personalities
>>32627741I think people are just worried about it being overly situational. Not all of our opponents will pull super modes on us, even if the Gunpla Club sure likes them. People want something that will be useful no matter the situation.
>>32627526All right, so we'll do one last round of voting to confirm the choice. We'll do it final destination style just to make sure.Remember, post the vote number and link ONLY. Vote is only open for five minutes.1. GN DRIVE2. DESTROYER MODE3. PLAVSKY NEUTRALIZER
>>32627773>1. GN DRIVE
>>32627741I think we'll only really NEED that for the big showdown with the Gunpla club, and now that we know it exists we can always conscript Holly into installing one into one of our teammate's suits before then. Or if we get a second suit we could we could put it there.
>>32627741'M hoping that a future upgrade will allow us to network link the drives.
>>32627685so we have increased speed and radar jammer.Vs increased performerance and shields?
>>32627767I guess apart of me feels like people just want to fight their super powerful bullshit with super powerful bullshit instead of making them fight an actual fight since getting GN Drives would not only give us an overall boost, but give us access to Trans-am.
>>32627842And just about unlimited power for laser weapons.It also allows situation activation a trans-am, a time limited super mode that allows hyper speed and damage capabilities
>>32627842>Speedball vs. Hardball
>>32627842GN drives have varied uses (energy, possible barrier tactics,etc)>>32627862It'd allow the whole GM Juggle thing to last longer as the world has yet ot see GN balls.
>>32627870Okay I admit I laughed a bit.
>>32627881>Plavsky NeutralizerBlueballOkay, that's the last one I swear.
>>32627842We'd get increased performance from both, actually, if only because we can mount more energy-intensive systems with the GN Drives. A single one of those is enough for a protagonist mobile suit, having three would give us effectively unlimited energy. Especially if we can get the synchronized drive trick that the 00 Gundam does. That gives you the output of one drive to the power of the number of synchronized drives you have. 00 uses two and squares its power. We could cube it. And Trans-Am applies its multiplication by three before the exponentiation. So 00 in Trans-Am gets nine times as much power as normal. We'd get 27 times. Then again, that's only if we got the synchronized reactors, there's no guarantee we could make that work. And 00 did tend to explode when it went into Trans-Am until it got a dedicated support unit for stabilizing the system. So maybe we shouldn't try to push the envelope.
>>32627917Yeah, and considering we're packing them into a GM frame, trying to push our luck might just cause us to explode into a very sparkly fireball.
>>32627917looking at the 00, the Ball's GN drives could be used similarly (making shields, speed boosts) when docked.
>>32627862I understand your worry, but that would still make it a fair fight. Whether we do that by rising to their level of performance or lowering them to our level doesn't really matter. As long as we can make it a fight they actually have to work at rather than just roflstomping their opponents, it's going to fit our philosophy. Besides, it's not like there aren't grunt mobile suits with GN Drives. We could upgrade to the GN-X Juggler, wouldn't that be fun?
>>32627773"You know what would be funny? GN Drives on Balls." You muse."Sure!" Holly beams without missing a beat."Whoa, seriously? I was sorta half joking there." You blink."Who do you think you're talking to, bro? I'll MAKE it happen!"With that, you finally reach the Hobby Shop, where Holly immediately heads to the front counter to buy the parts she needs."Holly seems mighty excited today." Lucina remarks.""Yeah, well, she's giving my Juggle an overhaul today." You grin. "GN Drives on everything!""That's the same thing Exia uses, right?" Lucina asks."Yes, Lucina. That's exactly right." You nod."Man, I wish I had a cool, super talented little sister." Mac sighs."Trust me, Mac, you don't." You laugh. Meanwhile you see Amy busy working on her Deathscythe, no doubt crafting that weaponized scarf she was talking about. Jake seemed to be assisted her, now that his TUSKER appeared to have been fully repaired. And that's when Charlotte also arrives."Hey, Jack! What's up?" She grins."Nothing much. Getting my GM upgraded.""Ah, cool. What are you giving it?">GN DRIVES EVERYWHERE!>I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours.>That's classified information.>Other
Now I may be wrong here, but I think that while the GN Drive is a piece of equipment you can just slap on, the full Trans-Am System might fall under "spooky Plavsky Particle magic" and require further work to unlock.IIRC Lucina's Exia doesn't have Trans Am enabled yet either.
>>32627991Which was partly why I wanted DESTROYER MODE... but whatever.>>32627990>I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours.
>>32627990> other"I'll do better, I'll Show you!"DUEEEEEL
>>32627990>Other"I'll tell you if you tell me how you beat that Virsago earlier."
>>32627990>>That's classified information.We'll be able to get the other upgrades right?
>>32627990>That's classified information.
>>32627990>I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours.Stop keeping secrets from us ghosts of our past.Remember guys; even grunts... can become heroes.
>>32627990>I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours.5218
>>32627990>Other"It'll be pretty obvious once you see it. Let me preserve the mystery for at least a little bit."
>>32627990>I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours.
>>32627990>That's classified information."But if I tell a bunch of people now, nobody will be surprised when I yell out the name of the new model in the next battle!"
>>32627862Cutting off the enemy's super mode is only really good if you can match and beat his non-super mode suit's performance. Raising the base GM's performance potential sounds like a good first step. For now, cover the rest with good use of tactics.
>>32628003>As soon as it's done
>>32628030>inb4 everyone just laughs at our new GN Juggler
>>32627962I guess a part of me feels like we're saying that since they have super bullshit, the only way to actually fight them is to have super bullshit of our own.But that's just my own thoughts on the matter, I'd rather not clunk up the thread with my worries.....And no, I wouldn't think the GN-X Juggler would be fun since I'm one of the people against all the Ball fixation but that's another thing I don't want to harp on over and over and annoy people with. :p
>>32627917So if we mount the GN Drive, we can increase the Beam Rifle firing rate of our balls?
>>32628054No one will expect trans-am balls
Rolled 10>>32627990"I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours." You grin."Hmmmm." Charlotte pauses to think about it.>roll 1d20
Rolled 17>>32628098I didnt want to ask...
Rolled 9>>32628098>>32628064Beam range, thickness or concentration too.Though I'm assuming that some modifications with the rifles will have to be made to accommodate that, like with the stability of the GM's frame for Trans-Am use.
Rolled 10>>32628101Looool>>32628098Offer to show her anyways when she declines.We fight a practice match with her.
>>32628101knew it, fuckin char
Gotta call it here tonight guys.Was fun playing with you all.Have a good night and a great weekend and don't forget to keep the archive up to date!
>>32628058Again, I see what you're getting at. But I think we'll be okay. Our character isn't opposed to super modes, if he was then he wouldn't have introduced Lucina to the Trans-Am. He's opposed to fights being boring and uncreative. The Gunpla Club aren't bad because they use super powerful suits, they're bad because they don't do anything interesting with them. We can make sure that Jack won't make that mistake. As for the GN-X Juggler, that was mostly a joke. I don't really care one way or another about the Balls. Though I would like to switch to a different design that can accomplish the same thing, if only because I don't like how they look hanging off our shoulders. My goal is to mod them enough to change their silhouette completely. That's part of why I supported GN Drives. Though Destroyer could also do that, if they shifted the armor parts around to reveal psychoframe.
>>32628109We don't have the Trans-am system though.Though we can work with Holly and Lucina on that another time
Rolled 3>>32628171We can fix that soon.
>>32628098"Okay, you got a deal." Charlotte nods. "But I asked first.""Fine, fine." You lean in closer. "We're putting GN Drives on my GM and Balls. It's gonna be freaking awesome!""You're going to give series purists aneurysms." Charlotte giggled."Since when did we care about stuff like that? That only limits our imaginations as gunpla battlers!""Exactly right!" Charlotte nods."Okay, now your turn." You say."Hmm, well, it's a bit difficult to describe." Charlotte frowns. "It's not based on an existing series trump card system. Sort of my own personal thing. I call it Carnifex Mode.""Carnifex?" You raise an eyebrow."It's like a super extreme form of Trans-Am." Charlotte says."How extreme are we talking about?" You blink."If I keep it up too long my gunpla will literally melt from the stress, but the performance boost is ungodly.""Jesus." You whistle. "Guess you gotta finish the fight quick.""That's the point.""So Holly, how are things going?" You ask."Shhh! I'm still working!" Holly snaps.>roll 1d20
>>32628202I'm still a little confused on the GN Drive and how will it be applied to Merc's quest.I know it will jam sensors/radars due to stealth but I don't understand the limitless energy though
Rolled 15>>32628208Rollin'>>32628171Well yeah, not yet. It's a plan for the future, but the stability and ruggedness of the GM's frame should be looked over first before foraying into using Trans-Am.I also realized that Jack's MS is pretty much a mass-produced Raphael Gundam...
Rolled 13>>32628208come on
Rolled 19>>3262822615 is good enough right?
Rolled 3>>32628208I guess we're flying a GN Juggler now.
Rolled 13>>32628253Discarding our balls is going to be a major downgrade now
>>32628221Presumably it would give us improved reactor output and let us run more powerful weapons, shields and thrusters. So by itself it wouldn't do anything, but it would raise the cap on how much we can upgrade the suit. And since it's a system upgrade, so long as we use conversion kits instead of buying new ones entirely we can keep it with us forever.
>>32628226Well if anything we can upgrade the frame by turning it into a Nemo or GMII, jedan, Jesta, or Gundam.Though to be honest I rather as a final conversion.
Rolled 5>>32628221UC lasers work by e-cap.Energy is stored in something like cartridges and uses the energy of the suit's reactor to trigger the shot to fire. So to resupply, they need to dock with a ship.Gn drive allows unlimited power so theres no ammo concerns. The output of the lasers is likely to be stronger too due to gn particles.
>>32628274Now I want I-Fields powered by our GN DriveWe will be unstopable
>>32628292Oh I see, now I want to buy the other beam rifles and intalled them into the BallsI hope it increases the rate of fire
Really curious to see what Jakes done with Tusker.
>>32628144I was hoping we'd figure out some way to use G-bits instead, fold em up and carry them on some kind of rack or something.Or just do away remote weapons altogether. i've never particularly cared for them. Speed and agility usually wins out in these fights. Not that I expect anyone to listen.
>>32628208After about another half hour, Holly finally stands up from her work bench, wiping some sweat from her brow. "DONE!" She says proudly.>GN DRIVE INSTALLED!>Agility for both the GM Juggler and its Balls permanently increased by 1.>The GM Juggler and its Balls are considered to have the ECM Suite upgrade.>Due to current frame limitations Trans-Am mode is currently LOCKED. Activation requires a DC roll of 18."This looks really sweet." You grin, awed by the new GN Drive. Holly also seemed to have managed to slim down the Ball racks both to make room for the GN drive and further streamline the Juggler a bit. "It's what I do." Holly grins.While you would love to test it out, it was already getting pretty late, and Mom and Dad would kill you if you didn't bring Holly home before dark. Perhaps some other time, though...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread will be next week. And don't forget Cyberpunk Idols on Saturday and the restart of PJ Witches on Sunday!
Rolled 7>>32628321Now that the balls have GN drives, imagine them docked, rotating to direct the GN drive's direction ala gundam 00.Now imagine the thtust output and the rapid redirection of mass due to rotating gn drives.Imagine the firepower.Imagine staggered trans-am. So we trans-am each gn drive one after another.
>>32628324>Activation requires a DC roll of 18.Oh good lord.
>>32628296There are GN Fields that act much the same as I-Fields, only they can block solid rounds, too. Though that means they can get in the way of maneuvering, since they interact with solid objects. It basically turns your mobile suit's profile into a sphere when it's on. However, we don't necessarily need that. It's mostly been abandoned by the Celestial Being mobile suits by the end of the series. The reason? Advances in GN Composite Armor. Yeah, the GN Fields become a part of the armor layers. Like scales, only each scale is a tiny planar forcefield. They had it from the beginning of the series, it's how Trans-Am is capable of improving armor durability, but by Awakening of the Trailblazer it's advanced to the point that only 00 Quan[T] uses regular GN Fields. We should definitely look into developing it.
>>32628324Sweet. Green pixie dust next time.>>32628279Now you got me wondering if Merc will utilize G Generation conversion methods for this quest.For example:GM>RX-78-2 Gundam>O Gundam>ExiaWith the RX and O Gundam being only marginally related through the voice actor of its pilots and general design layout.
>>32628324Great we don't have to buy the ECM Suite, so we can install other things to it. So our Balsl have an Agility of 5 now and Our GM is 2.
>>32628324What would have happen if we had rolled higher merc?
>>326283Im pretty sure Trans Am doesnt work like that, and would instead just burn out the Gm.As for the rotating, we could dotthe same thing by mounting the GN drives on a nozzle style boos stsyme like some of the Crossbone and F91 units use, or just use a Crossbone gundams boosters and mount 4 of them. And Have a Beam shroud and all kind of other stuff, and still be faster.So far, theres nothing we've done that couldnt be pulled off just as well or better withoutusing bit style weapons.
Ok, so we really need to loot a GN Sniper Rifle ll when we get the chance, now that we can power GN weaponry.It's a sniper rifle that can also fold into an SMG.
>>32628388Well, then, we can easily mod it if we decide to get rid of the Balls. Meanwhile, we're got what are basically super-funnels to play around with. Maybe they won't turn out to be viable. Maybe they will. We'll experiment with it. It'll be fun.
>>32628421Fun, Bleh!Just stating my opinion. Whats i'd like is to have a small bunch of models and mess around with them all, but I cant see Merc Command wanting to keep track of that.
>>32628421Also due to the upgrade the Balls are faster then Overflag now
>>32628453He forgot to put in our countermeasure suite on our GM and Balls.I now want to test out our new GM, and buy some equipment next week.
>>32628453>have a small bunch of models and mess around with themThat'd be Elder God tier dedication for this quest.>Purchase Jack's kit and acquire all the parts needed.>Assemble them into the specifications cited.>Take pics and post them.I only got GN Drives lying around still attached to their respective models.
>>32628510So your going to recreate Jack's Gunpla?Good luck, we keep upgrading it every week
>>32628534Not a chance.
