    Props to the devs for owning up to the game's shortcomings and trying to rectify it. Hoping for some major improvements in the near future. Not like that '1 co-op coin for the host' nonsense.

    Story chapters feel like they're dragging on really slowly, but hopefully it starts to pick up real soon. I wanna know what's in Sarah's USB drive. Piz'fa's appearance was pretty sweet.

    Map weapons and Terra Casino sounds interesting. Though I'm really hoping it doesn't add more money-grubby gacha to the game than there already is.

    Cannot wait for the improved interface! I've been ranting about the terrible UI since the beginning.

    Will this campaign revitalize the game? I'm not so sure. But best of luck to the devs.

    I'm glad and it was refreshing to find a positive post about the future of the game!!!!

    Story chapters more often would be a great thing. I liked the inclusion of Pizfa and I dont want to make spoilers but I loved what the end of the chapter was implying <3

    The improved interface sounds great too Im really happy about the automatic party setup part. Changing parties is a huge pain right now, not intuitive at all.... just takes so much time

    Coop quests that change daily...I wonder how they are going to do that, daily update sounds like a lot, but i guess we have to wait for that.

    I personally have high expectations about the casino :3


    POF was one of the most beloved things in TB1 (at least for me hahaha) since it would allow you to get really nice characters and rewards while giving an use to coins.

    A casino system would be a different way to give use to (at the moment) mostly useless money in the game.

    Imagine they decide to include some fun mechanics like minigames that could be played with in-game currency, something similar to the Gold Saucer in FF7.... only that by itself could become a reason for people to log everyday, and use their stamina to get quest coins that could be used to later play the casino, ESPECIALLY IF THE GAMES ARE FUN

    I hope they dont include any energy stuff there to not screw it up xD

    It would be superlame if you can just "buy the coins to play".

    Items similar to the coin boost or xp boost packs available in TB1 in exchange for energy wouldnt be that bad i guess.

    At the moment im mostly in a "sleep state" in TB2, I finished the current quests already and I have no intention of SB/UB my characters so Im just doing my daily logins and waiting for the new update :D


    Here is the link to the full news in case somebody havent seen it yet

    For current user base, it will.

    To attract brand new players and growing community, the game would need a major overhaul and marketing campaign.
    Re-launching with a new name (Terra Battle 2 Reborn?) and brand new GooglePlay/ios app page to reflect this is one way.

    I've decided to be positive about the game ever since I decided to SB (right around when I pulled Rowlow). However, for those who aren't getting Union awards, events like these are very important.

    I agree with the consensus that the game needs to rebrand; MW/SS need to find a way to create excitement for a game that clearly the majority of mobile gamers have outright ignored (not to mention the portion of our community that has already left TB2), and re-branding is typically the way to do this.

    Outside of the re-brand, I think events like GGA and the current V-Day one are going to be a big part of the game's success; having an actively updated story mode is nice, but compare the amount of time you spend in story (NOT SBing :troll:) to the amount of time you'd spend grinding rank in GGA or bumping people out of their pincer in V-Day raids ;).

    The main thing SS needs to do is find a balance between giving away cool unique freebies (Kimono girls w/dolls, SS staves, etc.) with creating content that requires units/equips from the energy pools. While most of us probably want to do damage like @Jeba and @Hayden, the fact that we're all using farmable units and getting exactly the same pulls as them in this event probably isn't ideal for continued profitability for the game. It'll be interesting to see if they can balance this out.

    Either way, I'm optimistic that we've got cool stuff coming down the line; I'll decide whether that optimism was silly once Reborn hits.

    Kinda sad there's more hype for the TB1 stuff on site/discord than overall TB2 reborn.

    Unfortunately, the lack of hype is pretty well-earned. Hopefully they can turn it around!

    I'm especially happy that SS decided to revamped elemental interactions.
    I've always disliked TB2 elemental interactions, they do not make sense and so convoluted.
    It's pretty evident from the way many people raiding with Ice guardians in this event that something needs to change.

    I remembered seeing Gooch being so proud when he revealed TB2 elements last year.
    He probably genuinely believed that TB2 elements would make game play more interesting...

    So, it's kind of unexpected for me that they would actually change them.
    Though, it might had been announced beforehand and I missed it.

    Exactly, the way elements work currently is not intuitive at all and it's unbalanced what with certain elements having advantage over more than one element and such. In almost every single game with elements fire and ice oppose each other, yet here they decide to change it up for no reason. I think they wanted to be unique or something but for the end user it's just a pain.

    Honestly, it seems like a missed opportunity to have fixed elemental interactions before this event, because more people would've tried to pull the ice Amath sister (Meg) if she had literally any use currently.
