Kaede is rather popular, so if you don't play regularly, say once or twice per day consistently earning S ranks in either Master song or highest level Pro songs including the event song, you might not rank at least top 100,000.

So top 100 000 to get her ?

Yes

But playing once or twice a day won't be enough, if the first event of this type is any indication.
I kept my stamina from reaching maximum for the most part (i couldn't always since i was travelling on some of the event days) and i ended up at rank 108'000 or so.

If you always keep your stamina away from reaching max (apart from sleeping) that might be enough though. Maybe you'll need to use a few stamina drinks or gems to get some extra stamina.
In the first event the battle at the end was quite fierce though. I couldn't play for the last 5 hours of the event and i dropped from rank 60k or so to 108k.

I totally underestimated due to

I know it's points tiering, but just wondering if I have my chances or if it's not even worth trying.

lol

Yeah, keep at it, and towards the end you can see if and how much you'd need to put into it in addition and decide then. I won't be able to play much from Thursday evening until Monday afternoon, so i'll probably be in a bad spot, but i'll try and decide on Monday afternoon.

For ponkotsu you had to play everyday without wasting much stamina to get into top 100k. Like 10-15 songs daily, depending on difficulty.
Kaede is a Goddess, so she is much more popular than some rabbit, so the fight for her might be more intense. And i'm pretty sure many were saving jewels for this moment. But i doubt Kaede's awesomeness will affect rankings below top50k, so 100k will be roughly the same as for Ponkotsu (less than 25k points).
Everyone (except those crazy top5 guys) get points at the same pace every day so in a couple of days it'll be easy to calculate how much you need for each place.

Well, it's a one-time chance to get this beautiful Kaede card, so i'll aim for top50k to get two of them.

Btw, here (jp wiki) you can see cut-off scores for this event. They are updated daily.

EDIT: and here (jp wiki) is Atashi Ponkotsu Android data for comparison.

Thanks for the info !


Other question, are the drop rates in gacha very high for rare cards or am I really lucky ?

I got the SS Rare school swimsuit Minami Nitta out of my first try, and the S Rare Shiki Ichinose out of my second in the new premium gacha.

Chance for SR: 10%
Chance for SSR: 1.5%

If you draw 10 at once the last card will always be at least an SR.
New cards have a higher chance to be drawn inside their tier, at the moment these are Minami SSR, Shiki SR and forgot who R.

So you were lucky, grats ;)

Btw there is a thread with game IDs of board members.

I'm hanging outside that top 2000 rank and I'm really tempted to get up there... but I wonder how much I will stand grinding playing songs over and over again.
Also, mfw I'll never get this close again.

MAKO MAKO RIIIIIIIIIN!!

I predict the cutoff for top100k will be somewhere around ~19000-19500 points, so be ready to spend some jewels. Kaede worth it!

Geez, the end was fierce...

Half an hour before the end of the event the cutoff was at 21'000 points. Apparentely by the end it was a bit below 22'000.

I'm glad i spent quite some time (and stamina drinks, and 150 stars) yesterday to build a 3.4k lead over the cut off.
Due to work i couldn't participate in the End-of-Event-Madness. I could use up the stamina i was getting and sneaked in another 50 gems worth of stamina for security reasons (and it seems it was necessary), glad my pc was compiling/linking for ages for some reason, but not chance if i were just a bit ahead of the cut off.
I ended with about 22'399 points.

I just wonder why it takes so long to calculate the results. And i guess next time i will build a 4k points buffer...
