I just thought of something that kinda makes sense, to me, at least. Does anyone else think they may have already had plans to give Rin, Uzuki, and (possibly) Mio CDs?

Anyone know how to change your name? I've seen people change their name in response to ongoing things (I saw someone just now who changed their leader to Uzuki and had something about "CD" in their name, and I saw someone earlier with "June Bride" in their name in response to the ongoing event), so I know you can do it. I just don't know how.

I was thinking maybe I could change it from "Daverost" in romaji to "Daberosuto" in katakana and maybe I'd get left alone a little more since I'd stand out less >.>
you're probably thinking about unit name, but since you wanted to change your name anyways :

I wonder what kind of seiyuu she'll have?

Guessing she'll have a totally new seiyuu (like Rin had), but my bet's more on a lesser-known seiyuu whose typecasted as a heroine.

I just thought of something that kinda makes sense, to me, at least. Does anyone else think they may have already had plans to give Rin, Uzuki, and (possibly) Mio CDs?

Many others may have guessed that long ago, seeing as they were two-cost idols, first to be listed and the textbook representation of their categories.

Know where your stat bubble is on the main page? If your name is Daverost, it should say Daverost's. Click the name to view your unit's stats (wins/losses, etc.), then click your unit name (very top, same text) on that screen and change it. 14 character limit.

But if I were you, I'd just pump DEF. I've never worried about ATK or Stamina that much.

I'm definitely pumping it. I also finally finished having a fully leveled defense team yesterday. It doesn't do me much good since most of them are Normal+ (I need to get cracking on costume rares and see if they're any good, but most of them don't look terribly impressive) so I still get beat up a lot.

There's this one guy who has quite literally beaten me up four times in a day for pieces of the same costume set. It's easy to recognize their name since it's in romaji.

As for Stamina, I'd like more so that when I have a full bar (stuck unable to check in on time or sleeping or after I level up) I can get ahead easier, but I feel like I'm never quite where I want to be with Defense and Attack. Speaking of Attack, I'm still trying to figure out exactly how it affects stats. I was noticing a boost in my attack even though I wasn't leveling my idols (I had a fully leveled attack team, but one's been swapped out with the new June Bride Kyoko, so I'm leveling again) and my attack went up after I leveled up. It wasn't by much, maybe 20? Just not sure how the points factor in. I can't tell if it's a flat boost or a %-based multiplier. I assume Defense works the same way. I'll find out before too much longer since I'm about where I want to be on Defense before I pump a little more Attack. Best as I can tell there isn't a whole lot of information on how stat points boost stats in English aside from how it affects your idols based on cost, but after you have enough to more than cover cost, that really doesn't matter anymore.

Also, I had no idea that your unit name was apparently different than your player name. I guess that explains why it's got a 'S at the end of it. I was also wondering why I saw some people without that and some people with P at the end of their names. I guess it's all whatever you set it to. I'll have to come up with something better, then, but with my team constantly changing, that could be hard. I usually name my unit after the members...

as for attack and defense
1. as you know they are used to cover your main team stats
but after that?
2. they are used for backups aka the other idols in your inventory
I'm not sure but they take full cost but only give 4/5 of their power <- this means atk or def to cost ratio must be high to achieve better stats

example

main team total cost = 50
and you have 60 attack points

so the balance is 10 attack points
(for the example I'm using yayoi SR+ which is 10 cost and has an attack of 9975 when MMM)
so yayoi gives you a boost of 6650 attack when you have an extra 10 attack
if you don't though, lets say 56 attack stats = 6 then you would have to 9975*6/10*4/5(<- did a little count and this one seems wrong)
defense works pretty much the same way

example #2
hanami chinatsu leader 10 cost
minami nitta 10 cost
kyoko 11 cost
kumiko 11 cost
val chie 10 cost
total of 52 cost

atk point = 65

balance of 13 points

backup:

kaoru = 4 cost 480 atk [480 * 4/5 = 384]
yuka = 2 cost 240 atk  [240 * 4/5 = 192]
yuka = 2 cost 240 atk [same]
rin  = 2 cost 240 atk [same]
13-10 = 3 balance
chinatsu = 10 cost 1120 atk   [1120 * 3/10 = 336 * 4/5 = 268.8]<- wrong formula(can anyone fix this for me?)
P.S the 2nd chinatsu is max affection

For power calculations...

http://forum.project-imas.com/index.php/topic,1428.msg34806.html#msg34806

As for what happened... it could be swapping out idol A freed up enough Cost to allow more efficient idols to fill the back, and the difference was more than the big number you got with A.

What determines which units appear as backup members?

The lacrosse girl and Kumiko from the wedding event have pretty good DEF.

Also I haven't even merged my Kyoko yet and her attack is pretty ridiculous.

Level 13 and her attack is already 3486!

It's buried in the first post there, but it's cross-referenced on the OP, so you can look there if you need it again.

Back members: When you've got more Stat than Cost in your unit, other idols will enter the fight. The game says they're chosen in order of cost-effectiveness (mathematically, Stat / Cost), but they'll only be able to throw out 80% of their total stat to help. Furthermore, if the last idol the game can fit in for you exceeds your Stat, then their effectiveness is cut much like the above (and they take a 20% hit as normal).

Also...

chinatsu = 10 cost 1120 atk   [1120 * 3/10 = 336 * 4/5 = 268.8]<- wrong formula(can anyone fix this for me?)

Seems to be off by one. 1120 * .8 * (2/10) = 179.2. Niita is 11 Cost.

So it'll just pop in whichever it can for the highest boost as cost allows?

And yeah, Kyoko's tough as nails. I think she got like 600 attack just from the affection boost. At level 18, mine has almost 4000 attack.

About the heroine part... Uzuki is almost an exact clone of Haruka (in terms of height, b-day, etc.). If they do get a game, her role might be exactly like Haruka's. I'm not totally against it, but I do wish there was something that was more "distinct" about Uzuki. :-\

Well... It seems, to me, that Uzuki is a bit of a Determinator- that is, will power through most anything- a trait that is aligned more with Ai than Haruka. (On the other hand, most people call Ai a Haruka clone, anyway, so...) She also doesn't have Haruka's baking skills or clumsiness. She seems, to me (at least in my head, and therefore unfounded by fact), to exude a natural grace and charm and seems to be great with people and social situations, and has a true passion for being an idol. Also, she seems like one of those people who are slow to anger, and who, if you do anger... well...

(For what it's worth, Uzuki and Haruka have different Star Signs, with Uzuki being Taurus and Haruka being Aries. Also, Ai is Cancer.)

That's interesting, I never thought of it like that (learn something new here everyday). But as for her role in their story, she seems to be the one who tries to lift everyone's spirits and be the always positive one (though that would depend on the backstory they give her).

Oh, I also read up on Taurus. Looks like she may be an introvert (so she'll keep things to herself) who you don't wanna get mad (Dark Uzuki? XD).
