  1. Muv Luv Alternative Strike Frontier What is Muv Luv Alternative Strike Frontier? Muv Luv Alternative Strike Frontier (MLSF for short) is a browser game based on Muv Luv that be played on DMM.com. It was released in September 2016 and new content is still added every week. Unfortunately there is no new English version. In this game, you collect characters and TSFs of the Muv Luv universe, represented by cards, and you use them to fight the BETA or human forces. Besides the gameplay, there is a main story as well as dedicated stories for each SR and SSR characters. The video bellow gives a concrete overview of the gameplay : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdtNVKgTYqs Is there any English translation available? Unfortunately, not really. Very few English-speaking players know this game and even less can read Japanese and are willing to translate it. So far, I’m mostly the only translator. Even so, not much is done. There is an outdated wikia that still contains very useful information about the game here : http://mla-sf.wikia.com/. By reading it, you should know enough to play the game. I’m planing to improve it but…I’m alone and I prefer to translate the main story first. Anyways, if you ask a question here, I’m sure someone will answer very quickly. What are the characters and TSFs in the game? As of January 2017, almost all of the major characters and TSFs from Muv Luv Alternative, Muv Luv Alternative Total Eclipse and Muv Luv Unlimted The Day After are released. What about the story? The game has a main story that you unlock part by part as you clear the main quests. In the main story, you, the player, is a high school student in Yokohama. And one day, you and your childhood friend Shirakawa Minori are pulled into Muv Luv Alternative , some days after the beginning of Muv Luv Alternative. I will let you discover the rest by yourself. Besides the main story, the event story (related to the main story), each SR and SSR has a character story. In the R18+ version of the game, that character story is a hentai scene with the character. In the all-age version of the game, it’s instead a chapter about the character. The character stories don’t have any relation with the main story. They are like omakes. Is the game fun? The game is like Kantai Collection. The graphics are 3D but limited and the quests are very shorts (3 minutes max). The game was made to be played on smartphone. If you like collection and Muv-Luv, you will surely like it. One thing that will surely bother you is that you can’t play as much as you want. There is a stamina system. When you play a quest, your stamina is used and when your stamina is completely depleted, you have to wait several hours to refill it. You can refill immediately with special items ( one of them can be bought with money). The gameplay looks promising but unfortunately the game is unbalanced. Quests are at high level too easy (especially with SSR cards). However, major changes are going to happen soon. For example, a multiplayer mode will be added. There are new events every week. Is the game free? Like many DMM games, it’s a free-to-play but pay-to-be-the-best. In this game, the most powerful characters and TSFs (rarity SSR) can mostly only be gotten through money. BUT it’s perfectly possible to clear any quest with only free characters/TSFs. Since there is no pvp, it’s not really a pay-to-win. Even without paying, it’s possible to get all the cards in the game but it’s incredibly difficult. Many cards are only available through events so it's important to play every week if you don't want to miss anything. OK it looks interesting so how do I begin? Please read the wikia : http://mla-sf.wikia.com/wiki/Registration and then http://mla-sf.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_Play You need a VPN or live in Japan to play the all-age version. You don’t need a VPN to play the R18+ version. Note that the game progress is synchronized on all versions of the game. For example, you can play the all-age version then the R18+ version and then the smartphone version.

  2. I would love it but I wouldn't be so sure about that. The current comic should be linked to the current event. But as the current event is only about TSFs, they might have chosen a chapter unrelated to the event. So the current chapter might not be related to the next event. On the other hand, it's a fact that Sumika, Yui, Iris and Yuzuka are shown in the special anniversary daily login bonus. It's also a fact that they're some of the most popular girls. It would thus be quite unbelievable there would not be an event about them so... For information, the chapter is about love (I need to read it again).
  3. @Voice_of_the_chaos_gods For some reasons, I can't see your pictures, I just see:
  4. @Nexiva Thank you for choosing Rafale! France is proud of you! AHAHAHAHAH Ok, time for explanation. This week, the event is all about TSFs. And like last week, there is also one popularity contest. Starting from today, you will get everyday one or more ticket (or something that looks like it). You can use this ticket by clicking one of the banners in the bottom part of the home screen. You should then see a list of TSFs. You can choose to vote for your favorite TSF by clicking it and the pushing a button somewhere. Be careful not to vote for the weapon or the rarity. Vote only for the TSF itself. What happens to the most popular TSF? Well they said the most popular TSF will get a special color variation. I don't think it will be free though. While at it, I might have well give other information: There should be an exchange ticket gacha soon. There should be a special daily login prize at the end of the anniversary events, like a free SSR. So everyone what are you going to choose? Personally I will vote for the Takemi U.N version. Surprised? One of the reasons is U.N FTW! I'm a bit disappointed we cannot vote for a raptor or for a black widow though. .......................................................................................... About the event... Well it's great (look at the event shop! So many XM3 and awaking materials!) BUT NO YUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII. I seriously fear there will be no Yui next week too. @Voice_of_the_chaos_gods Can you remember the name or the link of the poll please? I'm curious.
  5. Small SIREP: I got quite lucky this time! I didn't play much, I got in total about 20,000 tickets that I used on Minori but I got 1 Minori, 1 Inia and 1 Kasumi drop! I got all event girls~~ Last event, I didn't get anything because I didn't play much. I was interested by Lise but not enough. This week on the other hand, Minori is a have-must. She is my second favorite character in MLSF. It now seems like that either Inia or Kasumi can become second (Minori is first). I'm quite surprised that Inia didn't do better. After all she won a popularity contest a while ago. I think a lot of people choose Minori first then Kasumi then Inia simply because they want to get everyone. Tomorrow should be the next part of the event but .... 'second part' ~ 'last part' is written in the event's name so I'm not sure if tomorrow will be another part of the girl contest. I will probably be something different. It surprised me that there is a special gold Takemi and yet not Yui... Weird. I really hope a SSR event Yui appear tomorrow or next week. It would be quite scandalous if there is no SSR event Yui. She's after all one, if not the most, popular girl of MLSF. .......................... I want to ask a mini poll to you, fellow players: Do you mind that the protagonist in the H scenario of each SR/SSR girl is the respective protagonist and not you (the protagonist of MLSF). For example, as of now, it's like this: Meiya, Sumika, Tama, etc... > Takeru Yui, Cryska, Inia, etc... > Yuuya Irisdina, Beatrix, Lise > Theodor The only exceptions are the MLSF original heroines.
  6. Hi guys, just letting you know there is a survey which should probably greatly interest you: http://www.age-soft.co.jp/archives/2143
  7. By the way guys, is there anyone who wants to inherit this thread? A long time ago I used to update the front page every day but now as you can see, I barely play the game. So I think it would be better if someone could do that in my place.
  8. Hi guys, it has been a while huh? Well I pretty much stopped playing MLSF. The most important reason is that I found a mobile game, Shadowverse, that I liked much more. So basically it completely replaced my mobile game. Current event has Lise! One of the characters I wanted the most! BUT the farm needed is crazy! Assuming 10 items per run, we need to do the hardest quest about 1000 times... That's way too many for me. Thanks guy for the new information about Muv Luv.
  9. Next event is the second part of Operation Lucifer for sure. There is 'first part' written in the title of the current event. @shinnarika Dude, the answer is obvious! Choose the first one and spend money to get Yuzuka!
  10. Ohhh @Nexiva, lucky you! By the way everyone, I'm so impressed by how much medals you managed to farm last event! I only got about 6000 in total. But at the end I got this : Hehe. ................... The next event is a surprise. I didn't expect this. Then again, so did you I suppose. This event's scenario seems quite important. Tashiro Hayato, one of the writer of age, wrote himself the scenario. It's about Operation Lucifer and Haruka and Hayase became Valkyries. It's canon. He also hinted that if this event is a success, more juicy scenarios will be be released because the end of Muv Luv Alternative is coming closer. There will surely something special for September, the birthday of MLSF. ................ For the inferno quest, it's best to bring AOE + double heal + double support + Michiru/Kyoto. Does anyone has trouble with this event?
  11. @Reis Unfortunately for the new players, Takeru is gold slot exclusive. Thanks for your opinion. I agree with you. Well, maybe they will release a SSR Inia as the same time when they resurrect the old SR Inia, like it was done with Yuzuka.
  12. @cassandra No I don't have any bonus card but I have enough friends with them so I can pretty get bonus rates every time. If I don't see anyone, I farm the 6 stamina quests with HN characters until I can select a friend/other player who has them. Well, I already have at least one Takeru and the other event SSR/SR. My goal for this event is complete. I thought I wouldn't be able to get Takeru yet I did it so I'm already satisfied. @Nexiva Counting from the beginning, you got like 12,000 gold ?!! My Yui... And just one Takeru. How about giving it up and taking a break? It might be best to keep your real-life stamina for something else or for the next event. ............... By the way guys, do you think they will one day release event SSR Yui and event SSR Inia? They already released some popular SSR event characters but so far, all Yui, Inia and Cryska were gacha exclusive. Would this trend continue I wonder.
  13. YESSSSSSSSSSSSS thanks to the new update and you guys, I managed to farm 900 gold and I got Takeru!!!! He's just level 70 and his skill is still level 1 but he's already my strongest character! So overpowered!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so happy! @Reis I think the SSR rate is 3% as written. It means the Inia rate is 1%. I wouldn't recommend you to try to get it, especially because you already have Minori but ... it's your choice. @Nexiva The bonus is capped at +600%. One character limit broken 4 times = +300%. So yes. two Christmas characters are better than one.
  14. Thanks. But damn, no cooldown? In that case he's the most powerful attacker! Even stronger than Lise! ..... I should really get him buttttttt I don't have time to farm...
  15. For the people who has Shirogane, how long is the cooldown of his skill? How much time do you have to wait before you can use it again? What about the damages? It says that the damages are increased when the whole squad is female but it doesn't say by how much.
  16. @Nexiva Akane's skill is 'Do 900% damages to all enemies around her. If her hp are bellow 50%, damages are increased'. Akane provides a drop rate bonus depending on how many times she got limit-broken: 0 time : +50% 1 time : +100% 2 times : +150% 3 times : +200% 4 times (max) : +250%.
  17. You're right. In the case of Akane's Shiranui, when the TSF is destroyed, it will resurrect one time. At most, 50% of its hp will be restored.
  18. Ahah I sure want more Yui (except if they are gacha exclusive). But I agree that there are too many TE events. And too many SM events. And too many TDA events. Well actually too many not-Yui event. Good idea for Takeru's skill! That would be very fitting indeed. But unfortunately it's not the case. His skill is : 'Do 1200% damages to all enemies around you. If the whole squad is made of female character (Takeru not included), damages are increased. As expected of the love nucleus protagonist of Muv Luv. He's the most powerful event offensive character yet. Too bad it's going to be hellish to get him.
  19. Wow I'm very surprised by the alternative manga. I never expected they would spoil what happens 48 years later. I didn't buy nor read it yet, but now that you spoiled us, I'm really tempted to buy it on amazon kindle and read the end. About Inia's scenario, you didn't post everything right? It looks like some part are missing. The screenshots you posted are from which chapter?
  20. @cassandra , @m3nth0l Welcome new players I'm surprised but happy to see you there. I wish you would manage to quickly get a strong squad but the game is merciless... The best CP is in general the CP with the highest attack stat. The skill is not that important because you can only use the CP's skill three times per battle. Still, it can mean the difference between victory and defeat. ................ The event is almost over and even though I can reliably clear the inferno quest, I didn't get a single Kyoko I did the inferno quest about 50 times I think... I had the stamina to do it but not the time...Well I will give up on her. Kyoko is nice but not necessary for me. Having a tank character is pointless when you have two healers like me. @Nexiva I'm betting next event is about C-squad! @Edelweiss Yes I'm sure you're right. I also hope they will buff the old characters and TSFs. I didn't see any date.
  21. You know, I didn't get one Kyoko yet, even though I cleared the inferno quest with boost mode activated more than 15 times already. You got soooo many event characters and TSFs...but not enough of them are XM3ed/awaken. I'm not sure which character(s)/TSFs you should awaken. Why you cannot clear the inferno quest for now? Is it because your squad dies too fast? Do not do enough damage? Which of your characters are max skills? You should first upgrade your strongest characters. For XM3, the new Takemi is the best choice for sure.
  22. YESSSSSSSSSSS My best characters are finally awaken! Look at this super duper powerful squad! With this squad, not only I can finish the inferno quest without item or gem but I can even S-rank it!! All of the characters and TSFs have been chosen carefully. I remarked a very important thing. Recently the event characters have very powerful skills BUT the their skills take more time to be filled up again. Old characters like my Yui recharge their skills almost two times faster! I tried to switch my Yui to Ikaruga but my squad performance severely decreased even if his stats were higher on paper. Skill cooldown time is very important because besides skill's effect, skill stops time and cancels enemy attacks. It matters a lot at the higher levels. About Ikaruga, I made a mistake. His skill " Does 900% damage to the enemies inside his weapon standard area of effect. Buff the squad's attack by 40%. Looks very powerful but the cooldown time is huge.
  23. The new event is woooooooooooooow! It's for now the best event yet! Two new event SSR Characters! Kyoko, very high defense stat with a super skill! Her skill is "Attack the surrounding enemies to you for 20 seconds. Increase her defense 100%"! She's the ultimate character for defense. Ikaruga. very high attack and powerful skill. His skill is "Do 900% damages to all enemies around you that have an AOE weapon. Increase the squad's attack by 40%." I'm not too sure about the meaning/translation. One new event SSR Prototype Blue Takemikazuchi with Machine Gun. Event shop : TONS OF AWAKENING AND XM3 materials! Enough to awaken 2 SSR Characters and 1 SSR TSF! The sequel of the past event story. Very interesting. Now I want to know whether it will influence the main story. There is one major problem though. The event will only lasts 6 days. I'm afraid I won't have the time to get the event SSRs and the materials... The game has really gone a long way since September 2016...
  24. @Nexiva I'm sure there is at least one person who plays the game 24/24. Actually there are several special rewards for the players who manage to get into the top 1000. All players within the top 1000 get several special combat items like +100% attack for the whole squad.
  25. Hummm actually I'm still upset over the "Gache Betrayal" event. But I'm still playing, though not as often. WOOOOOOOOOOOOW congratulation! I'm very happy that you got what you wanted ever since you began the game! I thought for sure you would fail to get her. Once again congratulation! (Reis and Shinnarika please be next! Bu don't spend real money for the gacha) This event was relatively short. 6 days I think? You guys got a good rank but I'm 1886# something lol. Well I just played one time per day. I got 2 SRR Gold Zuikaku, 2 SSR Red Zuikaku and 2 SR Chara (forgot her name). That's already enough. Humm the story looks very interesting. I didn't read the story recently. I'm waiting to get a dozen of chapters queued so that I can read everything at once without waiting.
