Need some advice
« on: December 29, 2016, 12:50:07 PM »
I'm at a point in the game right now where I got kind of stuck, I can't seem to get much further with Lives or DL. My 3 mains are now Rank B and I can't seem to Rank them up to A yet cause of not enough points.
Is there anything I'm missing out on? Cause I can't seem to find it.

Thanks in advance :)
I'll keep smiling!

What do you mean by "enough points"? Can't you get a score high enough to clear the A rank up event? Or is your problem that you need a lot of fans to even unlock the A rank up event?

I can't get enough high score to clear the A Rank yes, the same with the DL Lives I can't seem to Ex clear them so I don't really get anything out of it.

check the scoring mechanics and strategies thread. That should give you enough information to beat the A rank up events.
As for the DL lives, try to get one idol to 5 hearts, having a 5th heart changes is a game changer for these events, since that 5th omoide appeal will get double score (which is then again tripled because of the costume image, see the scoring mechanics thread for more details)

I've read the scoring mechanics and strategies thread, and did some changes, but still can't Rank up :/
Makes me so frustrated right now.

You get more hearts by simply using the idol, or using a costume that gives you more, although that usually isn't an option for DL lives.
Be warned though: it takes a long time to get from 4 to 5 hearts.

Well, one of the major obstacles to overcome is getting to the 5th heart as Naryoril mentioned.  There really isn’t anyway to increase it other than using the idol or using up (or eating) those chocolates the idols give to you on Valentine’s Day.

Meaning, you’ll have to do lots and lots and lots of grinding, and unfortunately there really isn’t any way around it.  Once you get to the 5th heart, things become a little bit easier since all the grinding helps with everything like getting more money, memories/bursts lvl (also assuming you’re also doing Lv3 lessons), song level, etc.  And, you’ll be able to complete those early DL lives to help obtain more S-rank costumes.

Of course, your next obstacle then is to get to S rank which is 10 million fans.  Though, I would recommend getting at least 2 idols to S-rank because that way you’ll automatically have enough total fans to unlock all the songs in the game.  Fortunately, to those that are playing the game later or haven’t gotten far, there are one time DL lives which give like a million fans per live.  (Those didn’t exist when I played the game, so I had to do that paid promotion a huge number of times which is very expensive.)

There’s also DLC money and recently DLC stat boosting item to help speeds things up too.

And, as Naryoril mentioned, there are some strategies to help you score higher, so it's worth checking out your accessories/costume making sure you have the optimal combination.  Personally, I never have to use Master version of songs except during difficult DL lives since I don’t have the costume requirements.

If you use a target support Z (you can buy them at the shop where you also upgrade clothes), can you still not do master difficulty?

DL Lives 1-6 have a guarantee S-rank outfit once you Ex-clear the 4th round.  All other DL lives beyond that, the S-rank outfit are drops.  I recommend checking out the scoring mechanic topic below that Naryoril created to see how to score higher.  I also recommend seeing my few recent posts in the DL live topic as well.

In my opinion, I wouldn’t recommend trying to get DL-Live outfit drops without using P-drops.  I’m not sure if the free-p drops on PSN are still available now.  Which in that case you’ll have to buy them (even then it’s not guarantee you’ll get the outfit).  Alternatively, some people suggest reading the botting topic below if you really want the outfits.

Target support Z helps with getting more perfect notes.  In other words, as long you're pressing the right note you'll either get a good or perfect  You won't get a bad or normal.  Very useful when doing Master songs.
