    *Director’s Choice Carnival*
    [Duration]: 7/24 (Fri), 12:00 AM - 7/30 (Thur), 11:59 PM (PDT)

    Training an animal isn’t a easy thing to do. The Mythical Beast Riders have mastered the art, however, taming fearsome companions to ride across the realm!

    This Rare Egg Machine Carnival features the new Kraken Rider and Unicorn Rider, along with other hand-picked monsters at 3x rates, and guarantees that they’ll drop at level 30 or higher! Furthermore, ALL Rare Egg Machine pulls during this Carnival are guaranteed +Egg status!

    In addition, simultaneous with the start of this Carnival, a number of older monsters have been permanently removed from the Rare Egg Machine. See details below.

    Full Carnival Lineup:

    ★6
    1516 Lively Maiden, Princess Valkyrie
    1270 Burning Maiden, Princess Valkyrie
    982 Blazing Maiden, Princess Valkyrie
    972 Lovely Maiden, Princess Valkyrie

    ★5
    2095 Kraken Rider (NEW!)
    2099 Unicorn Rider (NEW!)
    1885 Massive Blade Brave, Zweihander
    1884 Curved Blade Brave, Kopis
    1883 Nameless Blade Brave, Masamune
    1882 Double-Edged Blade Brave, Claymore
    1881 Twin Blade Brave, Shotel
    1649 Red Knight, Nim
    1130 Avalon Drake

    The new Phoenix, Griffin, and Cerberus Riders have also been added to the Rare Egg Machine, but are available at standard 1x Rates.

    -----
    The following monsters have been removed from the Rare Egg Machine:

    ★4
    111 Vampire Lord
    107 Gigas

    ★3
    106 Titan
    110 Vampire

    Looks like this Carnival will be off by the time GF rolls around.
    Anyone seriously motivated to roll on this?

    Riders 2.0 at "only" x1 rates......

    Weapons Series adding smokescreens and chatter (it will be hilarious if/when they make it so that Weapons Series gets street cred tho! But that time is not today!)

    Avalon Drake, Nim, Power Ranger Valks as bait

    No thanks!

    Especially not while a Godfest event is not (most likely not) overlapping, yuck.

    Trashy McTrashTrash McTrasherson must be the name of this "Director"

    Honestly it's quite cheeky of them to only put in two of the new riders at 3X rates. Come on. Like those Weapons monsters are going to actually get anyone to go, "Wowee! I gotta get these monsters for my teams! I'm going to roll!"

    Exactly what I thought when I read the line-up. If they'd at least featured the whole riders 2 series ... But no, only the random heartmakers are in.

    Those *exact* Three Rider 2.0 cards : [Phoenix, Griffin, and Cerberus Riders] are arguably the gems and/or what are going to be the immediately sought/chased cards in the Rider 2.0 series too. Phoenix Rider and Griffon Rider both probably moreso than Cerberus Rider relatively.

    I am sure some good synergy and usage can be had of Kraken and Unicorn riders.....but that is rather niche and/or not fully realized for today's popular teams...so far at least

    I'd love both Phoenix and Griffon Rider for teams I have and/or plan to build up.

    NOPE, not taking the bait here though! | I'd only roll during a GF anyways myself

    *VERY* Shady of them to only put these exact three cards at x1 introduction rate!!!

    All x1 rate means is "they exist" in the REM I assume and intrepret here

    I've had a good year so far. I am going to hold off on rolling unless 3K comes around again and I can try to score another Liu Bei. But other than that I have no motivation to roll until the Holidays. I simply have too much to build up and solidify.

    Had Phoenix, Griffin, or even Cerb rider included, they might've gotten people to roll but putting the 3 better ones at a crappy 1x rate is not only shady and trappy, but really dumb on their part.

    The only good thing is the removal of *some* crappy cards.

    Not crappy, just unneeded in the REM.

    Quite the CarniLOL. Feature the weapons and the two riders that almost everyone likes the least. (The dark one seems crummy to me as well, but whatever.) Why not feature the newly buffed ninjas? Valks can't carry everything by themselves.

    Then again, I was not going to roll regardless.

    As a side rant, we haven't had a decent wood gala + godfest combo this year.

    Maybe worth it for valks? It's really hard to get valks from a regular godfest since they're 6* and never get boasted rates.

    I'd wait for the pink REM to return for valks (if it ever returns... sigh)

    3x boost to 6-star rates isn't working that much in your favor

    they should have had different types that fit their pantheons better, I agree. still, the buff is nice. Hanzo now works with LuRonia teams, and the addition of ailment-resist awakenings could be handy in the right situation. of course it also means I need two more tamadra for Hatsume :hurting:

    I'll wait for a godfest that catches my eye. Maybe Indian 1 will come around soon. I'd really like to snag a Shiva.
