THE iDOLM@STER Stella Stage / Re: THE iDOLM@STER Stella Stage Gameplay Thread
« Last post by nyachan on December 28, 2017, 05:51:41 AM »
I'm looking at the first chunk of title lives, and there's some big chunks like Feb-April and Jul-Aug that seems a bit hard to schedule around, get boosts for, and keep mood up to keep going through. Aside from brute forcing with high levels, is it possible to basically have "teams" for each title? Example: Ritsuko does IU (Solo), Haruka(Lead)/Miki/Chihaya/Yayoi/Iori do IE (Quint), and Yukiho(Lead)/Makoto do SD (Duo)? Then you'd only have the IR (All Star) to make sure everyone is at least "ok" for. The titles are company-wide and not per-idol this time, correct? I assume you'd have to keep the lead the same to keep challenging the next step in the title as well, but correct me if I'm wrong on that.

edit: also, if anyone's figured out how long it takes for an idol's mood to deteriorate to the point the game forces you to take an off, that'd probably be good to know for planning as well. I'll try to keep track and hopefully get it figured out.

Thanks for the response

oh btw that Huruka/Miki duo stuck around till the 2 second week of november which is handy because 10/4 is the final of Idol Ultimate.
Also the Chihaya solo live seems to be active as early as 11/3.

p.s. the makoto/haruka cutscene with Yukiho sticking her head around the wall is the best cutscene in any game.

Hi, I am about a week into my first idolmaster game and im having a great time so far (S-ranked everyone / EX cleared nearly everything / cleared Makotos CP board / have 2 outfits left to buy)

firstly i have another unlisted live for you - Haruka and Miki have an S rank duo in the 4th week of october (READY!)

I have a question about the burst skills - particurlarly in the DUO tree there are a lot of seemingly useless very expensive burst skills (5 and 7 come to mind i think) that dont actually lead to any other skills - do you need all of 1 to 7 for any reason other than you might like the look of them better than 8 if you arent on the edge of clearing a live score wise?


Thanks

If you use Stage for You, the only selectable bursts (If you use them) are the ones that character unlocks. You can't use a burst that hasn't been purchased on the CP board, even if you're playing S4U.

Other than that, unless it's in in the way of another skill you do want, you don't need to, apart from clearing the board with one idol once for an achievement, if you're into that sort of thing.

Oh right, almost forgot, the important point, which matters for lategame stuff.

All non lives in the game (Lessons/Promotions) give temporary bonuses - they no longer level up a stat.

The non lives improve money gain and fan gain respectively (You pay for the fan boost promotion) and the lessons provide burst scoring bonus, memory appeal bonus and chain combo bonus respectively. The strength will determine how many weeks the boost is for (Spend more, get more)

First things first: there's a bug (we think) where the game won't give you the lesson bonus for burst or memory appeal if you're maxed out on the stat.

This can be fixed by abusing this next point - You can have MULTIPLE lesson bonuses running at the same time. If you have the max chain lesson active, then do the others, the bonuses will correctly calculate.

This makes using the lessons near mandatory for the three S ranked permanent SP events available (where you have to perform a typeless stage and where you cannot use trending to tilt the board in your favour) if you want to EX (And if you're under level 65, even just pass!) and get the accessories they have.

Edit: Found a second undocumented Live - Iori/Ami/Azusa - Smokey Thrill, month 1, week 4

That is correct - each event on the left side (marked by a symbol) is associated with a major title. The other events are effectively qualifiers - fail to clear (or EX, not sure) them, and you won't be allowed to enter the next one.

Chihaya's is the only one I stumbled over - You need to have that idol as lead that week for it to show up on the SP list.

I'll note that with the unique events, that you need to find the first to do the second, and so on. They need to be EX Cleared to reveal the next one in the chain.

I've been grinding CP, since well, see previous point about bursts, before I can move onto my next phase of working. If I see others, I'll note them down.

- There IS a penalty for running any of the 13 idols down - if you run any one of them down far enough, you will be forced to skill the following week. This means that the penalty only really applies if you have a schedule to keep (Namely, hitting the 6 majors)

- There are events that won't list on the calendar - All the idols have their own special events, which are locked by Song/participants. Some will list (Haruka's will, as well Iori/Ami/Ritsuko) as they have items attached to them for (EX)clear. Others will not - Chihaya's special event (month 12, week 1) doesn't have anything attached to the event, apart from a nice CP boost.

I imagine there's others, but I haven't seen them.

Speaking of the titles, you have to basically do and clear all the lives attached to them to get them yeah? So the 4 for IE, IU, SD, 3 for SOF, and 2 for IA and IR? (unless I miscounted/there are ones not on the schedule)

If you remember the details about the limited idol events, I can add those to my sheet as well! Might add a personal schedule planning chart for those interested... though I'm sure you could also take the top row from my first sheet and make your own as well :P

I did learn some interesting things while playing through Stella Stage (I've 100% and collected all the costumes/accessories), and they do contradict what I thought earlier, so apologies for the misinformation earlier:

- There IS a penalty for running any of the 13 idols down - if you run any one of them down far enough, you will be forced to skip the following week. This means that the penalty only really applies if you have a schedule to keep (Namely, hitting the 6 majors)

- There are events that won't list on the calendar - All the idols have their own special events, which are locked by Song/participants. Some will list (Haruka's will, as well Iori/Ami/Ritsuko) as they have items attached to them for (EX)clear. Others will not - Chihaya's special event (month 12, week 1) doesn't have anything attached to the event, apart from a nice CP boost.

I imagine there's others, but I haven't seen them.

- Do not use the trophy system to determine if you've found everything - you CAN platinum the game without finding all the costumes or accessories.

- What bursts you have available in Stage for You is determined by your game's CP grid for that idol - in short? If you want access to everything, start clearing that grid for every individual idol.
