  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 There is an outdated wikia that still contains very useful information about the game here : http://mla-sf.wikia.com/.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. And the new event is... MLTE, again. I didn't expect this. The SSR event TSF is a red Takemi... Maybe the next event Takemi will be the gold one. @Imabot I feel your frustration. Young Yui was the character you wanted the most and you probably thought you would wait forever but... here she is and you used up your gems last event... Well at least, you know what to use the next exchange ticket for ^^ @Nexiva Uh? Why would I spend my precious G-Ores for such a low gain/high risk? My favorite version of Yui is with long hair in her fortified suit. The next time I spend G-Ores, it would be for : -A new version of Yui (maybe) -Idol Minori As of now, I have 341 G-Ores. What about you?
  3. Thanks everyone I'm thinking of buying every gold disks but there is not much time left. @Reis Well, the next time C-squad appears, it will either be their idol version or their regular eishi fortified suit. If you like the cadet fortified suit the most, it might be good idea to try it but... if I were you, I would save again for Inia. After all you already have a very very very useful Minori, even if it's SR. On the other hand, your current SR Inia is not as useful. So replacing your SR Inia seems like the priority. As for me, my next goal is idol Minori. I would like another SSR Yui but ... my current SSR Yui is my favorite version, even if it's not the most useful. ............... Tomorrow, the maintenance will end at 16:00 (JST) instead of 15:00. I'm betting on TDA. Who is with me?!
  4. Whaaaaaaaa !!! I got my SSR ticket thanks to the bronze course and you know what? I got the Rafale!!!! It was the TSF I wanted the most!!!! So happy. I immediately XM3ed and LBed it and thanks to it, I can now perfectly clear the inferno quest. I also got one Rinka drop ^^
  5. Yes! My prediction was correct! for once Well I don't care about the gacha at all though. For me the gacha stuffs might as well not exist. Speaking SM, I got Anett, Pham and Sylwia with SR/HR/R tickets ^^ I was quite pleased. @Reis Yes the pink type-89 looks interesting (and it's not even a Fubuki! Happy?)
  6. @Imabot About the event achievements, I think they decided to scrap them because they are redundant with the event point exchange shop. When the event is a purely drop-type event then achievements will surely once again be added. About the XM3/Awakening material, yes I mind it a lot. I don't have trouble playing the multiplayer but... farming materials this way is every inefficient. @Reis I kind of guess the new gacha will be the new character...
  7. Ok I take back what I said, I cannot clear the inferno quest without item. I can almost one-shot the bosses but charging skills take too much time without attack buffs. Well but farming the extreme quest is not bad. The good thing is that it costs 30 times so I can do it three times per connection.
  8. My bad , I made a mistake! Her SSR name is "My paradise" but her skill is indeed " no bust, no life". I see... The destroyer classes are my hated enemy now. I really should awken / XM3 all of my squad but multiplayer is too inefficient to get materials.
  9. When I saw the event picture (when you start the game), I immediately thought of you lol. This event is exactly what you wanted, Now I want my Rafale How many G-Ores did you spend to try to get Inia? Ah I feel sorry for you but let me thank you one more time because I'm once again reminded to save G-Ores for things you are sure to get (like panel gacha). As expected the inferno quest is hard. At I first I thought it would be impossible but I tried several times and I think I might even be able to S-rank it without item and without powerful ally! The key is NOT to begin by killing the destroyers classes. We should keep them for last when all of your squad's skills are are activated. You can also one-shot the mini-destroyers with an AOE skill. In this quest, a character like first SSR Yui is perfect. I could almost one-shot the bosses. ................. Who do you mean by "bear girl"? Akaru, no? Her skill is "My paradise" .
  10. As expected. I wish you good luck. The newest Inia is one of the most powerful character in the game. Her total stat (attack+defense+hp) is even the highest! Her skill is : Do 600% damage to all enemy in an area whose form is a cross, if your TSF is speed then the speed of the enemy hit will be debuffed. I think her skill is the same as the new skill of the enemy TSFs. ------------------------ For the inferno difficulty, it may help to use SSR Meiya with your strongest TSF. When one of your characters inflicts damage with a normal attack, the skill meter of all characters will be increased, even if the other characters don't do any damage. So even if 4 pilots can't do any damage, as long as one can, you can use your skills.
  11. So another Muv Luv Total Eclipse event. I wanted the Eurofront or TDA but... the event story is very interesting! Like @Imabotsaid, it's about our squad fighting Yukon base in a "simulation". Let me give you very a brief summary : Post-Chapter 1 : 207C squad fights various tsfs. Post-Chapter 2 : 207C squad fights VG and Stella. Post-Chapter 3: 207 squad fights the Infinities Post-Chapter 4: 207 squad fights again Yui, Yuuya and Tarisa. Chapter 5 : About the aftermath of the battle. The chapter 5 is especially interesting. It's happening some days after the battle even though the simulation ended. It implies that the "simulation" wasn't a just a mere simulation but a parallel universe. When C-squad enters the simulation pods, they surely take the control of random TSFs of a parallel timeline of MLA. It's just like how MLA Takeru took control of Takeru in MLE. The events about the scarlet sisters, invasion of Kyoto and about SM were surely about that too. Everything was real. Except in another timeline. Or maybe the current timeline? Bellow is another reason why I think the simulation weren't just simulation: The simulations were too real. Even C-squad said so. At first I thought it was thanks to Kasumi power but how can Kasumi could have known the personalities, the memories of the SM cast? She wasn't even born at that time. Hummm I need to read again some chapters. ---------------- I will give some information about the main story. So after Iyo and Rinka arrives at Yokohama base, they will soon be joined by Akaru and Misaki. The 207C squad is now complete. Days later, they are sent with B-squad to pass the Comprehensive Exam. They pass it then they begin TSFs training. Later, the father of Tamase comes to Yokohama base BUT this time there is a HSST that is going to crash into Yokohama base! Like in MLU. Yuuko orders Minori to shoot it down by using a simulator remote controlling a TSF armed with the 1200 gun. She succeed but... it is later revealed that Minori only shot down the simulated HSST. The one who shot the real HSST was Tama. The HSST was also remote controlled by Yuuko so there was no real risk. Days later the coup d'état happens as in MLA. C-squad is at first sent to support the Valkyries. Thanks to that, no Valyrie dies. In the original MLA timeline, it wasn't the case. Then Yuuko orders them to guard Takeru and Yuuhi.The main story is currently at this point.
  12. Holy Yui man, you got so lucky!! Congratulation.
  13. I'm glad my joke fooled some people hehe^^ Don't worry though, I will only do that one time per year so you can believe me next time. --------------------------------- About the event, I chose to do only the ultimate quest because I can't reliably clear the inferno quest. On the other hand, I can S-rank the ultimate quest with HN characters easily. Thanks to that, I got a lot of battle items and disks but ...I only got 1 drop SSR Raptor... On the other hand I got 33 F-16C... What I'm going to do with them I wonder... I kind of wish to have farmed the inferno quest instead but... at least, I now have enough battle items to farm the next inferno quest. I'm a bit jealous of you guys, you got so many raptors. I wanted 5 of them to do a full raptor squad but I guess I will settle with 2. ------------------------------------------ I'm sure SOME characters will come back but probably not all of them. I dunno if they will release Circe again because she's a a cheated character. Anyways, as usual I'm looking forward to the next event. I really really hope we will get a Eurofighter or a rafale soon... Are they waiting to do a special The EuroFront event like it was the case with SM? Maybe.
  14. If it's any consolation, my winning ratio is not better... I cannot win without using powerful items or cheat ally character like Circe or Iyo. My Yui can one-shot the boss but I almost cannot stop the destroyer classes from ramming me to death before that the bosses appear. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Anyway guys, I have a great new to tell you! The community manager said on the official community forum (on DMM) that next Monday, ALL players who logged at least ONE time per week since the game was released in September, will receive ONE EXCHANGE TICKET as a reward for their fidelity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So much yesssssssssssssss! What/who are you going to choose? I will choose Lise! For more details look at this picture :
  15. The hardest new quest is called "Inferno / Hell difficulty". A fitting name indeed. I'm amazed I can't actually do it without using items or/and an ally such as Circe...And I freaking hate the destroyer classes. Their charging attack is OP.
  16. It's not a bug, it's a feature. When someone doesn't log for 30 days, the next time they play the game again, theywill receive a special login bonus whose final reward is a SSR ticket This login bonus is called "come back login bonus", the developers implemented it to pull back the players who left. EDIT: In case you're wondering, the current special gacha is the same as the rare special except the SSR rate is 4.5% instead of 1.5%.
  17. I don't have her but according to the description, the targets hit by her skill will suffer continuous damage as if they were poisoned/burned. Holy Yui, that's amazing! Yes the current event is 4 times better then the other events for farming logs but still, doing the same mission again and again takes time and most importantly, it's so boring. Are you playing another game while farming logs?
  18. I like this ! But I hate you 'cause I'm jealous. Kei is not my favorite character but let's be honest, the art is absolutely gorgeous. ........................................ @Imabot Oh I didn't know about that. .......................................... Topic updated.
  19. I wonder about the scenario of Walken too. I didn't got 5 copies of him so there might be a H-scene with Irma. -------------------------- I completed the page of the multiplayer. I think you already know everything but who knows? You might learn a thing. http://mla-sf.wikia.com/wiki/Multiplayer ------------------------- Speaking about the multiplayer, there are many bugs. It will be better if your internet connection is fast and if you live in Japan. With my connection, there is almost no problem for me, lucky I guess! @Imabot To unlock the next quest, you are supposed to get 5 blue passes. They are dropped by the betas. So far I got 4 passes but the last doesn't want to come it seems... @Reis Yeah. the stamina/4 event is perfect to farm logs. I think the best would be to farm the hardest event quest with as much HN characters as possible ( with my squad, I can 3 HN characters at most). --------------------------- I will update the next topic tomorrow about the current event. Let me give you some tips about the last event quest : The boss spawns once you kill a Fubuki on the middle-top right. The boss will always attack the leader. It means it's a good idea to bring a leader with a shield TSF while the rest of your squad uses high attack TSFs.
  20. I agree. ----------------------------------- I didn't manage to explain everything about the multiplayer. I will finish the rest tomorrow. For now, please read that page http://mla-sf.wikia.com/wiki/Multiplayer .
  21. The multiplayer is finally released!!! And the new event is also about the the 12-5 incident. The event SSR is SSR Sagiri. I will give move details in 2 hours. Just know that you can play the multiplayer now until 20:00 (Japan time = GMT+9) or from to 22:00 to 24:00.
  22. This time I was unlucky and the only SSR Walken I managed to get was the one you get when you clear the ultimate quest 100 times. @Imabot Yeah Iyo is not so useful when yoit squad is powerful enough / when you need to kill as many as enemies as possible. Actually I have been avoiding you lok @Reis Thanks for the information. @shinnarika One Walken is enough I think.
  23. @Zest Just like Imabot said, Beatrix should be permanently added. However, I greatly recommend you to NOT try to get her that way. Your odd is so low it might as well as be zero.
  24. Wow. You know, I used about 20 R-tickets, 15 HR-tickets and 18 SR-tickets but I have never gotten a SSR thanks to them. Anyway, Kasumi is the closest character to Inia (appearance and personality wise) so congratulation. Is she your first SSR CP? ///////////////// About the hardest quest of the event, I found out that the boss appears once you kill the group of Shiranui just before the last group of Shiranui. You can kill that group and directly kill the boss after.
  25. Amusingly, I don't have trouble surviving but I have trouble clearing the hardest quest with a semi-farming squad. I don't kill things fast enough. I think Isumi and a powerful AOE skill character is needed. Well farming HN characters should always be a side goal. ......................................................................................................... I updated the topic. I added some information about the future promotions / campaigns.
