  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 There is an outdated wikia that still contains very useful information about the game here : http://mla-sf.wikia.com/.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. Yeah Laser fort class! I have been waiting for it for a long time! Yeah Skill Up Items! It's time to max skills our characters! Yeah Shiranui Phase 3! Nooo gacha exclusive characters...
  3. Why does Unit 00 look like Sumika?

    In addition to rlranft's explanation, I propose two additional hypotheses: 1) Cloning of Sumika / extrapolation of Sumika's appearance from her DNA. 2) Visualization of Sumika's memories through Kasumi. Sumika certainly saw herself in a mirror before, thus Kasumi can learn how she looked.
  4. It is not. However, there is a mission which gives you one the first time you kill the superior. I don;t know about the drop rate but as long as you have one copy, you can always LB it with materials so yeah.
  5. m3nth0l is right. Takeru with a sniper TSF and 10 minutes of micro is enough to solo the superior. You really don't need anything else. Here is the strategy in more details: Use your CP with the strongest attack and with the strongest attack buff skill Use Takeru or your pilot with the strongest attack with the strongest attack skill Use your strongest TSF with a rifle. Keep in mind the element (power, speed, technique) doesn't matter here. The rest of the squad doesn't matter much Evade each attack of the superior. Attack as far away as you can. If you control him well, you can avoid 100% of its attacks. It should like this: Superior finishes it attack You attack two/three times then do circle to avoid the next attack Superior attacks again You avoid it and repeat the circle When the CP's skill is full AND Takeru's skill is ready, use your CP skill and then Takeru's skill to do more than 200,000 damages. Repeat that 5 times and it should dead. Congrats, you got one of the best TSF!
  6. If you can actually manage to beat the superior one time, you're guaranteed to get the Type-00R. And yes, you can actually beat it without the susanoo. There are two ways: The very tedious way: use a team full of rifle TSFs and attack as far away as you can. I noticed sometimes rifle TSFs could attack from behind the AOE attack of the superior. Its directional attacks are almost impossible to avoid but I also remarked it would keep attacking in the same direction when they're only one or two TSFs left. The tactic is thus to make it attack the same direction again and again while sniping with a rifle TSF, evading from time to time its AOE. It think it would take something like 5 hours to kill it this way. The very expansive way: use a team 100% attack with 100% offensive skills and spam the hell out of G-ores. 10 G-ores should be enough. IMO the best way is just to wait for an ally with the susanoo. Tomorrow, they''re bound to appear. Important: use your best pilots and TSFs, the type (speed, power, technique) doesn't matter against the superior.
  7. 弱点属性 means type weakness. In this case, it means you are recommended to use Speed type TSFs and characters. 弱点武器 means weapon weakness. In this case, it means you are recommended to use TSFs with rifle and shield. The message on the right says: S-rank > +25% more medals All squad alive > +25% medals. I really want to get Minori's TSF but I don't think I have enough time this week...
  8. Awww, you're one year too late... I lost all motivation to translate MLSF, hell I almost don't play it anymore. Sorry...
  9. From 10/27 to 10/31, there will be some special limited Halloween quests. By clearing the quests you will get Halloween tickets. Having Halloween characters add a bonus but it is not written what exactly they do (probably increase the drop rate) You can use the tickets for a slot machine or something like that. You can get items and even maybe a SSR exchange ticket. The SSR you can get with the ticket are old SSRs.
  10. Welcome to the most annoying enemy in MLSF! THE DESTROYER CLASS! I hate these things more than anything. The best way to clear the mission is to have a character with an AOE powerful enough to one-shot the destroyers. Then you should keep and use the character's AOE skill every time you see a destroyer. You should focus fire on each destroyer one by one. Like you painfully experienced, they're the most dangerous pest. Pro-tip: destroyers charge only after they lost about half of their hp so it's best to one-shot them before they charge you. But yes, MLSF is a vicious circle for beginners... Her ability is: Inflict continuous damages to all enemies in a very large area. Her skills sounds good against TSFs but looks ironically terrible against BETA. Why? Because all of the destroyers will ram you to death. I don't remember the old stats so I can't tell. Also, RIP Nexiva. Try not to suffer too much. @Reis Yes I like this event too! Gacha locked Yui is a minus BUT there is one U.N coin SSR Yui and the XFJ-01a Shiranui-2 Phase 3 ! I really want to get it. If I were you, I wouldn't sell any card if you only have one copy. You would need to sell 30-50 SSR to get one U.N character. Isn't it such a waste? I think the best way to farm U.N coins is spamming the friend gacha and then selling R, HR and SR. Farming the quests might be better if the SSR drop rates aren't too low. I will quickly explain the skills of each U.N coin characters: SSR Maya: Ally defense + 50%, -30% received damages from enemies whose type is advantageous (for you). SSR Sandek; 500% damages to enemies in the weapon's area of effect, additionally 20% chance of slowing/freezing them. SR Tonya: For 10 seconds, increase her speed by 30% and her weapon's rate of fire by 30% SSR Sumika: Heal 30% of each squad member's HP. Increase their attack by 50%. SSR Irisidina: Increase the defense of allies by 50%. -50% received damages from enemies whose type is advantageous. SSR Beatrix: Increase her attack by 50%, +50% damages to enemies whose type is advantageous SSR Yui: Single target skill: inflict damages equal to 25% of the current HP of the target. SSR ForgotTheName: 300% damages to all enemies around her. If her TSF's type is technique, the area of effect is increased. SSR Katia: Increase the skill gauge of all allies (except her) by 40%.
  11. @Marcus As far as I know, the strongest single target skill belongs to one event SSR Yuzuka. 1400% damage and -50% defense debuff...I think. @Nexiva It probably has something to do with your connection. I think if it's too slow/unstable, the timeout error appears.
  12. I don't care about the current event but I sure care about the next! According to the current pictures in the game, the following will explain what will happen: The next event will be a Halloween themed even. There will new objects in the U.N coin shop. There will be new SSR Characters. There will be previous time-limited SSR Characters. They will be updated and buffed. The characters will probably be SSR Hina Yui, SSR Wedding Katia and SSR Valentine Beatrix. Those characters will be available from 10/10 to 10/30. The current and future gacha cards give 10 times the amount of U.N coins.
  13. Ah I got it! Nexiva calls YF-23 "niggamilf" because YF-23 is also named Black Window. I didn't know about Berkut though. Interesting. .......................... About Kasumi's skill, as with any Command Post character, they have one active skill and one passive skill. The active skill is used in solo while the passive skill is used in multiplayer (that no one plays it anymore). The active skill of Kasumi is : Heal 200% of all allies'HP over 10 seconds while increasing their defense by 30%. The passive skill is: If there are 2 healers in the squad (including Kasumi), the attack of the squad is increased by 20%. .......................... I'm sure there is another kind of BETA after the trebuchets that give real good rewards but like you I cannot reach that phase. About HR tickets, well, mine are accumulating. I'm too lazy to open them than sell my HR...
  14. Well, the first waves are easy but I can at most kill the first two waves of Trebuchet. After that I'm either out of time or dead (if I trade healers for attackers). Did anyone manage to see what is after the trebuchets? Maybe the laser things? @Nexiva By the way, why do call the YF-23 "Golden eagle" and SU-47 "Niggamilf"? I don't get the references.
  15. I'm sure the 4 gen TSFs will come later but like Reis said, I don't think we will get any future character because they will have to be accompanied by scenario. Anyway, the 4th+ gen TSFs will most likely be gacha- exclusive for a while. I didn't manage to watch the live stream but for 4gamer typed an article about it: http://www.4gamer.net/games/032/G003242/20170924052/ . Basically, there is nothing new. I will sum up the important points of the article: No new game or anime has been announced but they said we can expect 'something'. 1500 people answered the poll and half of them were foreigners. In addition, it is written that one of their goals is to promote ML oversea. So we can definitely expect more future Muv-Luv related things to be in English. Kouki Yoshimune said he has an interest in school-related story like ML or Kimi ga nozomu eien so the setting of the next ML might be an university, school, like TSF school? If they do an anime adaptation, they want to do it well. No half-baked product. So probably high-quality 24 episode-anime. Even though age will become one part of avex, fan shouldn't worry about it. The future of ML and spirit will continue.
  16. @shinnarika I think that the XM3 and awakening set were directly transformed into enough material to awaken one SSR character and one SSR TSF. Check if your XM3/awakening items increased. By the way, I also got 2 YF-23 in one game hehe. It seems I will LB everything this week ~~. It has been a while since I did something like this. I gave up 90% MLSF last month but the greatness of the recent events convinced me to pick it up again. I can't wait for the continuation of the main story.
  17. The girl you are talking about is SSR Summer Lise. She was one of the event cards one month ago or so. I didn't get her though (I regret a bit).
  18. I don't have any SSR character with AOE dmg + aoe heal. So I put Beatrix. This is the best I can do for you I think.
  19. Lucky for you, you can have now the free anniversary SSR. The best support SSR in the game by far. Her skill is 50% +100% SPD, ATT, DEF buff oO. My ID is 26092595. I already added you.
  20. Sorry for the one-week delay. Here is my explanation: The first picture shows the result of a poll. The question was probably who is your favorite MLTDA character. The characters are: Yuzuka Ellen Shizuku Sayoko Komaki Marimo Kusumoto Lilia Kjellber Ogami Ritsuko Other The second picture is about the most popular SM characters: Katia Irisdina Lise Grendel Anett Sylwia Kirke Beatrix Other The third picture is about the most popular characters whose birthday is in November: Sayoko Komaki Munakata Misae              Beatrix Gate Guards Bernadette Le Tigre De La Rivière Amemiya Mariko (雨宮 鞠子) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ By the way, did anyone see the skill of the new gacha SSR Meiya?! It's 2000% damage to all enemies in front of her! The visual effect is like the XG-70 beam!!! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ And just, WOOWWWW the new 8gen TSF! I expected to see post-Ouka TSFs but to think we would see the first 8th gen TSF! As expected it's totally overpowered. But damn, almost impossible to get. Well that's ok. I'm already more than happy that I can get the YF-23.
  21. 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).
  22. @Voice_of_the_chaos_gods For some reasons, I can't see your pictures, I just see:
  23. @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.
  24. 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.
  25. Hi guys, just letting you know there is a survey which should probably greatly interest you: http://www.age-soft.co.jp/archives/2143
