Enough heavy metal to sink a... battleship I guess. I just love the thing and it makes me feel funny when I see it fire its cannons. It might be all the mech prawns I've been looking at but, man. That's one fine ryder.

Wait, there will be no more ryders? No mid-season upgrades, no friendly Alliance grunt machines, no final boss ryder?

I'm in despair.

Post by: Nagashofchaos on September 01, 2014, 05:05:49 am
Wait, why is havoc an option? We haven't even seen that ryder for.... awhile (yeah yeah).

This is a difficult poll.
-Blackjack- Closest to a balanced type, I mainly use it to destroy other ryders and defense flak
-Liberty- THE HEALS, THE FLAK OFF, AND THE DISABLE. I effectively use it as a spell caster.
-Phoenix- Fly me closer so I can hit it with my sword. Surprisingly didn't die this episode.
-Bianca- meh, spam aim down and use a gravity once and awhile to throw a poor ryder into Blackjack or Phoenix
-Seraphim- T_T died once, a pretty good sniper, who also is a signal ryder for missiles.
-Paladin- mmmmmm, dat kinetic, sadly REALLY slow but is proving to be a strong tank
-Havoc- um... melee? um... Cosette! um... yeah I got nothing.

For me, ultimately a battle between Paladin and Seraphim. What can I say I like my dps. Oddly though I shall go with Seraphim, though it failed me once this episode. This is suppose to be favorite ryder poll (not for just this episode/closed beta, i guess) and as I always seem to fall into despair when Seraphim goes down, I guess my subconscious already figured this one out.

Going to wait after I played the Beta, but to me it will be a conflict between Seraphim and Paladin (and maybe the Phoenix if Icari continues being the hardcore badass she has been until now). While I know that in hard the Seraphim is fairly worse, in normal both are really good and the Seraphim is really cool.

Paladin, the ability to take half a fleet to the face and keep on trucking as well as dueling with battleships makes her the best Ryder.

Seraphim looses out to it being a ok sniper but ultimately failing against PACT Support Ryders, ie the enemies I really want dead. As it stands she's now just a longer ranged Pally with crappy armour, health, and no flak support capability.
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll

Seraphim is also pretty good. I used awaken and started spitting whole battleships every round.

Post by: tanker4444 on September 02, 2014, 11:04:40 am
I voted for the Seraphim, although the Blackjack is very, very close second. I have to say the simply nature of the seraphim makes using it a joy. That said, I feel like it needs something. maybe a better built in acc bonus against ryders? I dunno, I just felt like it wasn´t any good against what I really wanted to take down, those debuffing devils! *shakes fist*
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: rgreat on September 02, 2014, 03:08:16 am
I had to say:
-Blackjack - Black Jack is all around, but good for nothing. Lacks in speed and powerful weapons. 5/10
-Liberty - Most useful support mech.  9/10
-Phoenix - Nice solo cavalry when upgraded. Can be sent alone in to the enemy rear. 7/10
-Bianca - a-Ok support machine, only really shine when upgraded for 120 energy. 7/10
-Seraphim - magic wand against support ryders and provide finishing blows against capitals. Mostly stationary.  8/10
-Paladin - I wish i can stamp this gunboat on top of Sunrider. Kryska is STRONG! 10/10
-Havoc - Suck. Cause i don't have it. And seems like only have limited firepower. 3/10

Still, Sola + Seraphim are just too cool not to vote for.

Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Histidine on September 02, 2014, 11:21:31 am
Aww, I can only pick one?

I'm kinda torn between the Seraphim and the Paladin. Both have excellent utility (though the Liberty gives them a run for their money). Aesthetics-wise, the Serry has a certain understated elegance to it (just like it's pilot :D), while the Pally has that very satisfying thoom sound with all guns firing (not as satisfying as the Sunrider, but close).

Heh @ Bianca having zero votes

Best counter to EW is to kill EW platforms fast.
In that case Seraphim is more useful then Bianca.

I'm sorry, but I agree. Sola and missiles every day. (Right now Claude is useful though as gravity gun shooter). The pink colour and retarded head can't help though...

Nah, Bianca in fact have pretty decent kinetic shotgun to use against captial targets.
Usually she can dish out up to 500-600 damage per turn (2 shots) against hard targets close by.

Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Magnificent Beard on September 03, 2014, 05:12:15 am
Well, this is much more difficult that the shipping poll. and as of the recent beta, Claude is no longer an exception!

Blackjack: I do like me some balance. Beard approved
Liberty: Nevermind my apathy towards the pilot, my general strategy wouldn't work without this machine. Alas, she's the only one who can fix things. I like it
Phoenix: Not a finer mook sweeper exists in the galaxy. If only she weren't so flimsy, but you can't have it all I suppose. Most excellent.
Bianca: I suddenly appreciate this ryder a lot more now for some reason. I wonder why? Very good.
Seraphim: Six or so upgrades into her reactor so she can move and shoot and i'll have no complaints. Too bad that Awaken thing only last one turn (It says two, but in practice it's only one since activating it makes her sit around like a space duck), but I guess it'd be too strong otherwise. Enough complaining though. I like snipers.
Paladin: Zero complaints. Durable, big guns, loadsa missiles, cheap flak. What more could you want? I guess that means it gets my vote.
Havoc: ...... That was the one with the chainsaw right? Could have sworn it blew up three times. N/A
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Elvis Strunk on September 03, 2014, 02:05:58 pm
I've said it before and I'll say it again : I love snipers and sniping. A decent part of my initial attraction to Sola was because she's a sniper, after all. The Liberty is also awesome, and the Black Jack holds a special place in my heart as well. Basically, it's be a toss up between those three at any given time, but at this moment I think I like the Seraphim a tiny bit more, so that's where my vote's going. It helps that she looks awesome as well.

with all the hate enemy rockets get I would've thought people would more than welcome a ryder that could throw some around herself on their team...

the Havoc is cool, dammit XD
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Magnificent Beard on September 03, 2014, 03:17:59 pm
I think the fact that the Havoc isn't on our team yet is a significant part of the reason it doesn't have any votes yet.
Otherwise I would concur. It is cool.
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Ledabot on September 03, 2014, 04:27:19 pm
Also... The havoc is just a recolored pirate ryder. I don't think that helps it's case much since every other ryder is custom. Actually, Kryska's might not be custom, but we just never see any alliance ryders anywhere else.
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: AkioKlaus on September 03, 2014, 04:28:14 pm
I wont accept Havoc for I know Vaen wont keep up the promise and not allow Cosette to blow 10 ships a turn.

Not just any rockets, though; it's mainly battleship rockets that are feared, I believe.  From what we can see now the Havoc has offense power on par with a generic PACT Bomber and the rockets are actually weaker than the generic Pirate Bomber's payload.  The only thing I'm not sure about is how upgrades will affect the rockets, like if the game will let you get more rockets for the Havoc, and if they have a Quantum Torp equivalent.

...Though it's still hard to deal with on Mission 2 since you have no defense or repair options, so I hesitate to ask for a buff without having something else give.
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll

Btw, lasers and such are dependent on the ryder's system...


why do missiles and rockets, which I see as stand alone weapons, require separate upgrades per ryder? (Excluding stock. obviously cant carry more missile by calling 'we invented smaller missiles') accuracy can be said by guiding system maybe, hmm..


scratch that,
guided missile plz.

Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: green goo on September 03, 2014, 05:21:46 pm
this is my views on the mechs of sunrider.

Blackjack: vital early game, post Seraphim meaningless.
Liberty: only single virtue, is the heal function nothing else matter mid late game in accordance to my playing style. should not have been given heal power, as it dues not match pilot skill set. should have been given Restoration,as this suits the polits skill set better. but heal is vital early game as such this is immersion braking issue had to be.
Phoenix: not required but a welcome change from Seraphim, one shot one kill of all shipping bar the new sunrider  battle ship thing the pact forces have. which i now use the rockets on for a one shot one kill.
Bianca: should have been given heal and  not restore, as the pilots is a doctor/nurse, and so the skill set dues not match the pilots skills and mentality. this for me is immersion braking. but early game requite it. which is a shame.
Seraphim: probably the most vital mech in the game.
Paladin: meningless liek the black jack
Havoc: very very interesting. would help in latter mission a great deal, due to more rockets for killing off the bigger ships with hull over 1900 points.

top three.
Seraphim
Havoc tied with Phoenix.

 honorary mentions Liberty.  but should have been the Bianca. but due to the mess up with the heal function mehhh cant be helped. the shot gun weapon is also pretty fun too.


to explain this i'l tell you may normal stratagy.

action one triger Seraphim awaken.
action two heal Seraphim ( to pimp out my income at the end of the battle. no repair cost)
action three shoot Seraphim as many time as i can be bothers, due to her gun being at 0 reactor points per shot. to one shot al lshipping with lessthan 1900 hits.
action four use Phoenix to kill all of the mechs, the foe has to relive boardom of only using Seraphim main gun.
action five blast a few mechs with Bianca, in the hope of hearing her noga the white serpent laugh.
action six use sunrider and it's rocket's to one shot all ships with  hit points over 1900. so far only 2 have shown  up and so only 2 shot have been needed.
later game if Havoc was available blast more ships with it's 2 rokets. or drain sunrider missile pods dry. then Paladin and finally almost grudgingly blackjack. Paladin has a nicer voice sound track.
if required  tactica warp, move sunrider/Paladin to a ship and use main guns on it till its dead. agai nto relive boardom of having to use Seraphim so much.

repear per battle.

so Seraphim gets my vote.

Claude is a doctor, not mechanic and ryders are not healed, but repaired.

Also, Seraphim kinetic gun uses 0 energy for you? 1900 damage per shot?! How?!

For all others it is 100 energy per shot, unless upgraded.

scratch that,
guided missile plz.

Missiles are not loaded from the common pool. Payload, guidance electronics, fuel and launchers vary depending on manufacturer. And all friendly missile-carrying units in the game were built on different shipyards and equipped with different missile models: Sunrider - Cera military, Black Jack - civilian, Paladin - Alliance military.

Also, all missiles are already guided, which is why they lose so little accuracy with distance. Come to think of it, it makes sense for missiles to not lose accuracy at all, but have arbitrary maximum range - due to running out of fuel at some point.
Or did you mean missile as a player controlled unit with a suicide attack?

Claude is a doctor, not mechanic and ryders are not healed, but repaired.

Dammit Kayto, I'm a doctor, not a mechanic!

Was thinking of TOW, not wired since thats pointless, but i was thinking scifi stuff allows some workaround.
also fuel wise, i doubt there is enough space debri to slow then a projectile so won't be an Issue i think. Kinetic does same damage in any range due to it.
Also I simply expected that Sunrider supplies all the missiles, or some trade corp, from idea that having multiple type of weaponry in small force is just unnecessary confusion. But your right. Probably each ryder has specific missiles they are capable of carrying.

kinetic
kinetic damage 340.0% ->345.0%                      49      142523149132
kinetic Accuracy 250.0% -> 255.0%                   31      19094517
kinetic energy cost -3.1918911958e-14% ->5.0% 21      104857600

so that about 1020 damage per shot. wit awake  thats about 2000 per shot depending on awaken skills ability.

in essence i cant miss and i can one shot anyi thing smaller then a default pact carrier. as you may have worked otu i sue the console comands to give mea buket load of cash. simple.

 the libiry/ blanka abialty ok her the point.

to hit a button to release  repair drones that are bound to be automated, just take a simple button push to activate.
 
whiel to work though a lot of code to find out what is a male ware and what should be there take an engineer,( eg. a specialist  code junky)

who is a code junky claude or chigar?? it's not Claude, as she to bizy being a busybody, snoop and/or a medic.
chirag is a tech and a code junky. it's kinda a no brainer for me to see this skill is on the wrong mech.

Chest rockets... Genius! The only problem is that if they are as bad as they were in Mazinger Z then might as well not do it
While I feel that we should give Cosette chance, it's true that every beta makes me feel she really is a scumnbag...

To be honest, a big problem of the Havoc is that for the beginning is plenty difficult (so upgrading it would make the game almost impossible on hard), but after mission 8 it has become a punching bag. To be useful it would require that the quantum upgrade applied both to the Havoc and Sunrider (and so increased the power of the Havoc rockets from 300 to at least 500). And somehow upgraded missiles (Chigara magic), the one she has are sh*t, and this comes from someone who loves missile play...

PS: Edited to make clearer what I meant
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll

a powerful flak unit, with melee ability, that packed right next to chiga and sola tucking in nicely behind the sunrider. blastich stuff with missle.

giving sola maxum suport. and freeing black jack form this reserveposition to the would be aggressor position. or partner black jack to blanka & phalidin in the mid forwould position. with phienx up front it to score goal ehmmm to knee cap the foes mechs with her first strike, death touch ability. hmm ok i tihnk i watch to much foot ball, and play mtg... lol

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBoGVivNtWI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBoGVivNtWI)

Particularly cheesy subtitles aside....

The chest rockets were generally underwhelming, but they were part of one of the greatest moment in Mazinger Z´s run. The moment that marked Koji as the absolute greatest giant robot pilot ever, to this day! For a bit of context, this latest enemy robot was impossible to fight due to its ability to fly circles around the landbound Mazinger Z. If memory serves this was a 2 episode story, in the first episode this new mechanical beast had to back off because it was unable to penetrate the photonic institute´s barrier system, necessitating it go back and get equipped with an anti barrier weapon of some sort. It bears mentioning that Aphrodite´s chest missiles are not the same ones as in other episodes. Koji asked the scientists at the photonic institute to change them for larger modified versions, naturally without telling anyone why or they might´ve tried to stop his crazy plan.

Paladin is great for taking out units, and I love it to death!

Unfortunately, keeping the ship repaired and aim up = win. I can hit and destroy more targets if my ships are alive and my accuracy is high.

odd my quantum rockets do 6000+ damage.

but think about this.

a powerful flak unit, with melee ability, that packed right next to chiga and sola tucking in nicely behind the sunrider. blastich stuff with missle.

giving sola maxum suport. and freeing black jack form this reserveposition to the would be aggressor position. or partner black jack to blanka & phalidin in the mid forwould position. with phienx up front it to score goal ehmmm to knee cap the foes mechs with her first strike, death touch ability. hmm ok i tihnk i watch to much foot ball, and play mtg... lol

really? mine do 20 bilion.
if you're gonna cheat, do it right!

 i'm stick with the user inter face or the upgread screen. the butter get lost undr the cover of the side pannle.

as i cant see the poitn of hacking the game code as tht brake my code of conduct i'm limited to how much you permite with the defult screen.

unlike you my code junky skill are striclty limited to rudmenty.

so for me i'm doign as i feel is just and i na way that is still in the form of the game. if yo uchose to yo ucan say it's a way to brake the game so yo ucna fix it.

so for me if the sunrider missle dmaage option is maxed at 30 or 42 or what ever it is. with cash thne that is hwat you have coeded ot be the phetical maxuin as harded by the user interface.

if yo uwish for the game to lermit me to rase it ot 20 billon and more thne really you have ot radicaly alter the user interface.

i'm a beta taster, it's nto my job to write the game but ot help test it til lit brake. and then report back to you how it broke and help you find out why it broke.


this is the point of beta testing. this is my funtion.???????

an ythign else isn ot what thej ob is about. simple.

Sola's ryder might be over powered as f**k, but it's useless. It shoots 1 shot, that's it. Hits 1 target, that's it. Can't move, ever, or you lose the shot. Upgrading power, accuracy, repairs, and disabling an entire ship is OP and you can just whale on it while it can't move...

 as i've posted my sola mech can fire an infinite amount of time a turn and can deliver 2040 points of damage per shot with awaken.

so i can move as much as i wish. but as i have over 200% hit chance standard, so more than 400% odd after awaken. well to be blunt my sola mech is a one lass army.

which for me is a reflection of her birthright.

 if it was not so.. then other mech would be important. but meh... i don't play the same as every one else.

Not quite that bad, you can currently get it for $13164.  (140 max EN, 70 EN to shoot)  It should be quite formidable in late game, if you didn't already get this after selling the Wishall.  Triple-fire Paladin Kinetics are also something to consider at $7862.  (135 max EN, 45 EN to shoot.  If you already invested 120 EN, it's less than half of the cost for double-fire Seraphim)

Double fire Seraphim however is kinda more of a priority, because you can complement the Paladin very well with missiles (120 EN and you cab both shoot a kinetic and either Assault or launch a missile barrage), and since missiles continue to be pretty easy to upgrade, is more easy to get obscene damage that way instead of triple kinetic. Still, that will surely be cool, gotta keep it in mind.

Also, selling the wish all is to make an Itano Circus  (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MacrossMissileMassacre). While double fire Seraphim is cool, triple missiles and 2 rockets top it all.

Yep, went without selling it. But I'm starting to think about it, even if my collector instincts are so that I know I never will, because I have like 40.000 CP stored. Still, the fact that my Lord braves hard mode without selling it is brutally impressive. Even Graph needed to have it sold for his first run, and I don't want to think of the chances without those 10.000 $ for us puny mortals.

It's pretty challenging, yes.  Mission 17 without selling Wishall feels kinda like Farport after I figured out my strat.  Need some luck to survive the first turn, even with a good setup, but you can potentially get things under control after a couple of turns.  I had to kill stuff in a pretty specific order just to make it that consistent though, making it possibly the hardest one to figure out so far.

Also, all this Wishall stuff... I think we've found another good poll topic!

Favorite ryder, hmm...

Design-wise: Paladin and Blackjack. I guess I like the look of lots of guns and missiles and armor and stuff; feels sturdy and battle-ready. Nice tankish green for Paladin and an aggressive red coloring for Blackjack helps bring out the mood.

Usefulness in battle: Well every Ryder has its role really, but I wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have Liberty's repairs and disables, so I'm probably going to put her first. As for actually kicking ass and taking names, I'd say Paladin, Seraphim and Blackjack, in that order.

Overall: If I really had to choose one, Paladin (but they're all nicely designed)  :)

About the Paladin, I really have to slap myself in the face, because until yesterday I didn't remember just how similar it was in weaponry to this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rfpxki_7ocE). They are even both piloted by female characters who like to kick ass and take names!

The Paladin really needs a move where it lands on a Cruiser or the Sunrider and acts as a turret for any of them

But seriously, after replaying some missions I put giving the Paladin 120 EN over giving it to the Liberty, even after you bought the Alliance Cruisers. There's simply an overwhelming need of big guns, and the fact the Paladin is only slightly less tougher than the Cruisers also make it perfect for making it the focus of enemy attacks. (though probably in hard it might end destroyed to bits if you aren't careful)

Whoa!! Thanks for the youtube link. That looks really badass! Me likes!  ;D
Man those were great cartoons, Robotech, Macross, Mospeada, etc. The details are pretty fuzzy now as I watched them on TV, a really long time ago but I do know I enjoyed them. I think the first one I watched from that genre was Groyzer X. Damn it, now I'm getting the itch to go back and revisit some of those old shows... coz sadly I don't really remember that character from Macross.

(though probably in hard it might end destroyed to bits if you aren't careful)

120EN is a good breakpoint indeed as it allows 3 tile movement instead of 2, plus doubled kinetic shots/turn. With another 3 upgrades in kinetic cost reduction, you get an additional Assault (if keen) to go along with the 2 kinetic shots.
In the last battle in the current 4.2 version, for me, Paladin was very sturdy, Took a few missiles, a laser and didn't even flinch. Maybe she'll be put in more danger in the battles to come and I probably wouldn't want to make her the sole focus of enemy attacks, but I'm fairly confident she can deal with some hits now and then... share the pain with Sunrider so to speak.
Seraphim and Phoenix on the other hand... /shakes head sadly at them.

The clip is from Macross Frontier, the latest series of the Macross franchise (I think it started running on 2007). Like every Macross series after the original, there was no export to NA or any other country, so I think it's normal you don't remember it.  ;D

The Paladin is pretty sturdy, but if you aren't careful, after it gets double-kinetics it can actually end getting more hate than the Sunrider, which can be dangerous on later stages (where the enemy gets fairly stronger lasers). Still, that ended only as dangerous without any kind of durability upgrade, so after increasing a bit its HP and maybe even Armour it probably will be much safer again.

The worst, I'd say, is Seraphim. Sniper rifle deserved something better than that "plop" we have. I'm sorry... but I expected something more... flashy, fearsome, menacing... something like that. Kind of like what railgun looks/sounds in some other games.

As for usefulness, I'd say they are all pretty useful in their own way. It just depends who decides to upgrade what and when and when/how to use it.

Well, it's a pretty good VN, but now I think it suffers from overhype. Also, if you want either Unlimited or Alternative to have any kind of impact you have to slouch through all the routes of the normal Muv Luv first, which it's a decent VN but the time hasn't treated it kindly (almost all the end scenarios are now big clichés...). It depends on your tastes, if you like a normal VN (Muvluv) followed by an enthralling story (MuvLuv Unlimited and Alternative), aren't afraid of a dark story, and are ready to sink a lot of time in it, go. If not then you can go without it.

I, as a sci-fi lover have also to say that even after all that Alternative it isn't that great. It it also suffers a little from some over the top grim darkness and a slightly Japanese-centric narrative.

If you decide to play the first MuvLuv, I'd say just do the routes for the main girls (Sumika, Meiya) and skip the rest.  That gives you enough of the experience and you won't miss much by passing on the other routes.

Well, portals to another world are a b*tch when you don't want to fall in one... There is a little more, but the spoilers are too big to even hint at it.

Still, one of the biggest problems of Unlimited and Alternative was it's backstory. Even now with all the expanded material (light novels, even a special magazine that it's only about the mechs, etc) it's pretty fuzzy, and it's a shame, because the Beta are seriously one of the best balanced aliens I have come across (in the fact that they manage to be very frightening yet also beatable, all without having to resort to the old Force FieldTM ). They would be great in a tactical game.

people typically dislike Extra as it's on the surface a very predictable, orthodox eroge with nothing special going on, but in actual fact it's filled to the brim with hidden foreshadowing (you'd be surprised how much you'll notice if you come back after alternative). after completing the Meiya and Sumika routes you unlock 'unlimited' which is a completely different story but with the same characters and it's a lot more interesting - especially due to the heavy contrast between what you know from Extra and the new environment the characters you are already familiar with find themselves in. especially the main character.

muv luv alternative is a sequel that makes it all worth it. yes, it is overhyped but nontheless it's absolutely one of the best visual novels out there. for full effect though you will have to go through Extra and Unlimited. in fact, you probably should see the anime 'kimi no nozomu eien' too, as a few characters from that will make an appearance again and lend a bit more oomph to a couple of scenes.

it'll take a lot of time to go through all of it but I can at the very least guarantee you won't regret putting in the time in the end.

If you've never played VNs before, or have only played basic entry level ones such as Saya no Uta, Katawa Shoujo, YMK, etc, Gorchnik really can't recommend the  Muv-luv series.  It's just not a very friendly "universe" to jump headfirst into.  While there are many reasons for this, Gorchnik likes to point out the following:

How many iterations of your work (manga, novel, anime, SIDE-anime, games, books, etc) should you really have to make to get your story across? Muv-luv has almost every single one in existence. Does that mean its "bad?"  No, not necessarily, but it is convoluted and it is going to take time if you want to understand it all. Gorchnik found that at the end of it all; that time your lord put into it really could have been used to read better VNs.

I suppose he meant it in regards to going from normal games/literature to VN. Saya no Uta it's brutal and terrifying, but relatively short and to the point. There's no hot spring, sports festival, etc scenarios with 10 hours of talk and 5 decisions to choose a girl. So it's a good entryway to VN for Horror/Mindscrew fans

Let's put it this way, the developers of the game put a toggle in the game to turn off all the more.......perverse descriptions and CGs in the game.  It's funny because it ALMOST takes the game out of the "hardcore" category. If you have the option enabled the CGs are still there with just all the "bad" elements removed  Needless to say the wife had the filter on after the first few scenes.  Gorchnik played through "hardcore" mode and while it was certainly an experience, your lord still can't say this was the worst VN he's ever played.  In fact, the actual story is interesting but it's getting through the abnormal stuff that makes it hard to stay.

Umineko, Saya, and Chaos;Head are all good entry level VN; the first is good for those who like convolution, mystery, & using their noodle, the latter for those who like gore and horror, and the far letter for those who enjoy schadenfruede!

On topic, though - if we're talking design, my favorite is definitely ol' chainsaw melee. Statwise is another story, but spacechainsaws are just dandy.

Oh hey, it's this kind of poll!


I admit, I had a really hard time deciding here...because in the end, I grew to love all of the Ryders, and all of them have a place in my general strategy. Each of them has something I like; Liberty has shields and buffs/debuffs, Phoenix has impossibly cool swords, Seraphim is silver and has a really big, FTL gun, Bianca is tough and has interesting abilities, Paladin has all the artillery and dakka...

THEREFORE, GATTAI!!!

*ekhm*

Therefore...I ended up going with the humble Black Jack.

It's a do-everything mecha. Sure, the others have more powerful attacks, or some gimmicks, but in the end, I can use Black Jack for everything. It's anti-Ryder, anti-ship, multipurpose, and if my memory serves me right, has almost every attack.

When in doubt, pick a Jack!

...although, I admit, it reminds me very much of the kind of mechs I built in my AC games, so I might be a little bit biased here.

The fact that there exists some AC (AC for Armored Core of course) players in the west always makes me recover some faith in humanity, even if we're horribly outnumbered by Japan.

I personally prefer the Paladin and Seraphim, but the Black Jack is really the most balanced, and you can bet it will be useful in every mission no matter the enemies. So don't worry, its a good choice even if you probably choose it from other reasons that purely gameplay ones. I can't fault you, if White Glint was present in game I would vote the hell out of him, even if he only had assault and missiles.
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll

Always great to meet a fellow AC fan!  ;D

That game doesn't get nearly enough love  :'(

I admit that Paladin was being pretty close to being my choice, together with Phoenix. I simply love its gun batteries and the sound they make (nothing like thundering mass-drivers to start your day to), plus pretty decent missiles. Phoenix because...samurai swords. Reminds me a bit of all those samurai Ravens from old AC games, or Anjou from AC4.

Plus, playing Icari goes pretty well with my favorite Metal Gear Rising song.

To this date, not a single SRW game has been released on the PC.  However, you could get yourself an emulator and emulate anything from the PS2 era and before.

However, the latest has truly been your lords favorite so far.  The animation is absolutely godlike and there are a ton of well known units in the game, even foreign players would probably recognize at least a 1/3 of them if they watch plenty of mecha-anime and play plenty of games.  Oh  its also available on the VITA if you want to go that route.  Gorchnik likes playing it on the big screen though.

I really can't believe Bianca didn't have any votes  ???!

It may be that I am a terrible terrible player but I found the Seraphim just sat around in a corner occasionally obliterating things half the battlefield away but it always seems to play a very minor role, and on the other spectrum the Liberty was useful but most of it seemed to be housekeeping, repairing and such being looped... whilst the Bianca could move an exhausted Ryder into shields or repair range, force a counter, still had a good kinetic and such, it's actually the Ryder that stops most of my fights falling into absolute chaos.

And Clu has some pretty funny soundbites as well, that helps.

No disrespect to the black jack, but does anyone else think that late in the game it's one of the least useful? I find it to be more of a extra unit that is used to only finish off really weak enemies as opposed to being a main contender in battles.

It mostly still does. If you click on anyone else before clicking Asaga, she disappears like she should. If you click on Asaga at the beginning of the turn you can still move her and fire, but once you end the turn or click on another unit she goes poof (mostly. Units still can't move to that space like its occupied) so you can't have Chigara bring her back from negative hp as far as I can tell.

Lol have to agree ;) The 2nd time I ressed her, she actually said "Phoenix rising from the ashes" and I found
that somehow oddly quaint  :D
From a purely gaming standpoint, she has a job to do: to get enemy ryders down fast. Once you get to a stage
where enemy ryders are all down, her value in combat plummets quite considerably, so if I really had to choose a
ryder to sacrifice at that point... I guess that would be her (sorry Icari :P). Needing to get close to hit enemy units also doesn't help matters either for her.

Seraphim/Sola is my most trusted unit. I'm not considering though Asaga's new awakened state she achieves in this chapter. It's either a one time use, or hopefully we get to use this more from here on out. But still, throughout the first two chapters, Seraphim has taken out the most ships with her Awakened state and Kinetic Accuracy. Now in term of ryder vs ryder, I find it a tie between Black Jack and Phoenix.
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Inaho Rowe on October 14, 2014, 10:24:37 pm
i'm most likely to let the black jack get knocked first, once it fired all it's missile, rather than phoenix or paladin. I'm not really uppgrading her since laser weapon are not my licking;
kinetics is all! kinetic is badass!! kinetic for life!!! crushing your hull ripping it appart with a loudly sound and a great recoil completly turning me on XD

Also as the blade too i really love them ^^ but well the black jack also have melee but....too expensive in energy and too hard to put in actual batle, unless in the final batle where i have'd to deal with lots of elits ryder that was way too close.

as for my preferred ryder it's quit a tie with the seraphim and the phoenix
i really love sniper and blade ^^ if i could made one ryder for the captain i would make it a sniper with blade, maybe some blade that came out of elbow or just a simple katana and a litle "targe" that could expan... well i'm going out of the main topics here XD......

so yeah i voted seraphim but i'm most likely tied between it and phoenix
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Alexeron on January 11, 2015, 03:18:36 am
Voted Black Jack. Other Ryders gives different advantages, and some of them are irreplaceable and very important for almost every battle, but still. Black Jack can sustain average damage and give enemy hell with almost all kinds of weapons. Awesome.

Post by: TooNice on January 10, 2015, 08:14:42 pm
Ignoring look completely, I went for Liberty with Seraphim is a close second. The Seraphim has awesome offensive that makes the battle easier, but few battles are won without the Liberty's support. Disabling flak allows those nuclear rocket to hit the target for massive damage, repairs is not only useful against enemy attacks but also when those Ryuvian characters (include Sola, but also that other character). That other character's power up amakes her into a killing machine more insane than Sola, but requires constant repairs.

Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Kirjath on January 12, 2015, 04:44:09 am
Due to the sheer lack of options I had that could deal with capital ships (since the Seraphim was usually on anti-support duty), the Paladin was my favorite ryder that could last on the front lines next to the Sunrider.

The Black Jack was so diverse, I actually hadn't put upgrades into it until Mask of Arcadius because I didn't need to. It eventually slipped into a "master of none" scenario where I didn't really use Asaga for anything but off-tanking.

With Seraphim I only ever had one shot, and I'm sorry to admit that most of them went towards taking out carriers or support ryders. Eventually, very far down the line, I might get this ryder into more of an anti-capital ship role. That would be nice.

Liberty was a solid support frame, but due to energy constraints Chigara was either repairing or disabling on any given turn. Not to say those two abilities weren't invaluable, but rarely did I have any extra energy to spare on a flak off or shutdown. And the Legion one shot her on its first turn (I can only imagine out of spite).

Bianca was the support frame I found using more diversely (and would get my second vote if I had it). Accuracy down was put on virtually any ship I could touch, restore was invaluable against enemy support spam (although I found it a tad unreal that their supports could fix disable while mine couldn't fix disable-lite), and her (inaccurate) shots were great for finishing off capital ships that were ALWAYS sitting at about 200-300 health left. Rather than waste a high damage shot, I'd often get Claude to finish them off. Consequently, the Legion also one shot her on the other half of its first turn. Definitely out of jealousy.

Phoenix was an interesting ryder to get used to. For much of the first half of the game, I hid her behind the Sunrider waiting for enemy ryders to get too close before engaging. Only later did I learn the benefits of aggro and evade-tanking. Sadly, this was during the last 5 or so battles, so Icari did not see as many upgrades or use as she could have. In the future, I shall correct this. She was definitely the premier anti-ryder in my fleet (and that's not nothing).

And, of course, the Paladin. With a fairly accurate kinetic gun and an extremely tanky frame, I was relying on this ryder to help me take out enemy capital ships. She was slow, but Kryska always got the job done when it mattered. If I felt it was feasible, I definitely would have sunk more upgrades into this one. Most certainly my favorite ryder of the bunch.

Post by: TooNice on January 12, 2015, 03:40:10 pm
Interesting enough, the Legion also went after Liberty and Bianca first in that order in my game. I quickly got Liberty back on her feet, but didn't feel the need to resurrect Bianca for that battle. My most use of Bianca is the Attack Up, followed by the Gravity gun, and then Aim Down, all useful but doesn't change the course of battle.

Interesting. I revived her only a couple turns later so she could use Accuracy Down on the Legion. Not sure if it did anything (and it was naturally immune to Disable), but I was hoping it would stop killin' mah dudes with kinetics. I almost never used her Attack Up since it overlapped with Full Forward (which also lasted longer and wasn't that many command points). In a similar vein, I didn't really use Liberty's Accuracy Up since the game didn't like overlapping buffs.

I don't know about changing the course of a battle, but it certainly stopped plenty of battleships from murdering my Sunrider with their kinetics when I threw it out there with short range warps. They would often move forward to improve their own accuracy rather than shoot from where they usually sat.

Post by: Marx-93 on January 12, 2015, 01:34:09 pm
The enemy A.I always instantly targets units that can be killed in one attack, no matter the other options present. While this is what makes the Phoenix such a good dodge tank, it also means that if they are in range, Liberty and Bianca will suffer a lot (Seraphim should too, but since that is clear since the early battles most people already upgraded its durability, so it isn't as noticeable).

The bad thing of the legion is that their missiles are powerful enough that even using extensive flak, 2 tend to be enough to destroy the Liberty or Bianca.
Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Fire on January 26, 2015, 07:32:53 am
My views:
 Black Jack - Jack of all trades, very good defences, good missiles, with upgraded lasers fills the gap to deal with lowish armour enemies (8-10), became less useful as shielded capital ships spreads, but frigates help keeping it relevant.
 Liberty - Repair is always handy, earlier (when full forward is expensive and less effective) aim up is really neat, later flak out becomes really useful and disable can deal with that enemy too dangerous but that somehow can't be destroyed right now, but I think that the shield is really its greatest boon.
 Phoenix - I've almost never used melee (imho too energy expensive to pull off) butt the (upgraded) assault eats ryder and crippled capital ships like anything and with its evade it has soaked me more damage than any other ship.
 Seraphim - Once you spend enough money on it (2 shots and enough damage) it really shines: oneshotting elusive target like supports and elite ryders, as the highest kinetic damage is very good at softening heavy armor targets to finish with other kinetics or missile salvos too.
 Paladin - With kinetics and missiles on par with the sunrider, it is a serious damage dealer to take down all the heavy targets.
 Havoc - Honestly it never impressed me: never saw it as a serious threat.

But, at the end, being able to functionally disable 4 enemy targets per turn is really priceless, add the chance of reliably oneshotting enemy riders with gravity, fixing supports debuffs and the same shield of the Liberty and clearly Bianca is the most useful ryder in my opinion.

Black Jack: Generic. Melee present but rarely useful.
Phoenix: Melee-oriented and made out of glass. Might be useful if supported by some lasers or something, like the ones it had when it attacked you; this is another point against it.
Bianca: Only weapon is annoyingly short-ranged; buffs and debuffs exist but are usually use-impaired or uninteresting. Also, Clare is...well, she's probably the character least-suited to being anywhere but the brig.
Seraphim: Even more overly-specialized than the Phoenix. Little armor, less maneuverability, and her one attack--while respectable--loses favor since it's literally the only thing she can do in a turn. Her only ability is a self-buff which lasts two attacks for a slight boost to accuracy and doubling damage in exchange for 20% of her minimal health, which makes it largely...well...questionably useful, since it increases enemy aggro while reducing her ability to deal with it.
I've never seen the Paladin, but she looks to be "Black Jack with bullets!", so no great enthusiasm there.
The Havok seems like it relies on missiles. I don't like missiles, or the mechanics behind flak.

The Liberty has some useful debuffs, fair durability and mobility, and above all, she can heal people! Losing the Liberty almost always means losing the battle. No one can compete with the White Mage.

The Phoenix is my favorite because the imaginary bird sharing this name was when I was a teenager and a young adulte, my favorite mythic beast. Besides, I like the low EP value to move this ryder and the cool twin blade attack and Icari just rocks but I even if it is my favorite, I have to say also that it's a pretty fragile ryder and not as versatile as the Blackjack.

Chigara (in Liberty): Whoa! A new ship to work on! And an adorable captain too. Maybe he's nicer.
Ava: Sir, all the enemy Ryders are shutting down.
Kayto: What for?
Ava: Being hailed by the only enemy ryder still online.
Kayto: Let it through.
Chigara: Umm...uh...um....
Kayto: C-can I help you?
Chigara: I-is there something you need scanned captain?
Kayto: Thanks for the offer? Uhh...I KNOW! My GIANT CANON!!
Chigara (blushing): Ch-Chigara is interested.

Meanwhile on the Legion

Fontana: Sir, the clone we have made seems to have turned on us.
Arcadius: It's all part of the plan. She's supposed seem like their friend, then sabotage the entire ship.
Fontana: Was she supposed to overload our core in the process?
Arcadius: .....son of a-!

That gave me a good laugh.

I am going to take this time to give a shoutout to all the people on the forums for filling my life with horrible jokes and cheesy comedy sketches. The captain of Legion salutes you, though he would ask that you stick your vanguard up a different hole. That's not kosher.
So from the bottom of my heart, thanks everyone!

Ava: Sir, who are you talking to?
Whalecow: Um... the internet?
Ava: (facepalms) I give up. You have frustrated me to the point where calling you an idiot would be an understatement.
Chigara: So... his level of intelligence is directly proportionate to how you personally feel about what he is saying that instant...?
Ava: ...
Whalecow: ...
Chigara: W-why is e-everybody staring at m-me...!?
Arcadius: ...Because We are smarter than them, sister.
Chigara: H-how did y-you get h-here?
Arcadius: Deus-ex-machina. Come and join Us, Chigara Lynn Ashada!
Chigara: G-go t-to h-hell!

(The screen goes black as Chigara removes hair electric hairbow and the sound of it hitting Arcadius's ass and a small yelp can be heard.)

My vote goes for the King Kittan's lil sis  Phoenix.
It's a ryder, armed primarily with two huge katanas/swords, in an age of laser weapons, electromagnetic railguns and nuclear  torpedos. That's the definition of awesomeness, bravery and lack of preservation instinct that I respect.

Title: Re: Favorite Ryder Poll
Post by: Whalecow on March 09, 2015, 02:41:53 pm
Each ryder just has its own niche to the point where it's hard to choose one to be the best. And since I am a total animinerd and have WAY too much free time on my hands, I will start with first in-game encounter (leaving Havoc at the end because YOLO) and list them all.

(Black) Jack of All Trades. Think Master-chief.
Blackjack. Named after one of these, most likely: http://www.whateverymanshouldhave.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/9-oz-billy-club.jpg
Can do pretty much anything. Has the weapons to take down anything from PACT mooks to missile frigates and maybe even cruisers with reasonable ease. And as I always tell people... FINE! We'll make our OWN VN! With Asaga's mech and Claude! (Futurama, anyone?)

The Healer. Every Chief needs a Cortana.
Liberty. The name says it all, and so does it's badass Ryder. "I"ll shut them ALL down!". I find the name a bit ironic as Liberty specializes in disablement.
Support ryder that I personally keep next to/in front of/ behind Sunrider at all times for easy repairs and additional shield defense. 2-shot-per-turn light trinity blaster is also a plus at lower levels, where it can be used to deal with lightly armored targets like mooks and even missile frigates. A bit harder to keep alive during later missions... but she IS supposed to be YOUR shield... and PACT takes pleasure in targetting her first for some reason. (Jealousy?)

The Max Payne Assassin. Someone in her family died at the hands of PACT, and now they're in for Maximum pain.
Phoenix. Phoenix down! Nanomachines! Phoenix down! Nanomachines! Phoenix down! Nanomachines! And so on and so forth...
Assassin mech. Super fast, super intense, just like its ryder. (Not as intense as Ava apparently, who scared her off if you chose Moralist at Versta.) Excellent at lower levels when mechs are more plentiful and there are fewer AA-equipped carriers and battleships. Useless against missile frigates on up. Becomes useful again when the PACT Elites show. Has agility than can be used for tanking. Very energy-efficient. And illegal! Hooray!

The Support. Shotgun as powerful as the pilot's personality.
Bianca. Claude... SHE'S A DOCTOR NOT A... (insert McCoy cliche here)
This can be deceptive as I have used here shotgun at mid-close range to annihilate PACT cruisers and ryders alike. Has skills that primarily buff allies, and a gravity gun that a proper interstellar troll can use to great effect on lighter targets. While the ryder is interesting (I have a theory on that as well) Bianca adds adaptability to excess. I am a shotgun fan for life. Just ask all those Elites on Halo... Oh wait... you can't. >:D

The Sniper. A bullet for every enemy. No more, no less.
Seraphim. Another name that says it all: Death. From. A-friggin-bove.
Just like its ryder, Seraphim walks softly and carries a big stick. Take one turn to awaken, and you have two turns to send super accurate, super powerful slugs into the capital ship of your choice, terminating or heavily damaging it (depending on difficulty level). It is VERY weak against the smallest units that tend to evade the sniper rifle at mid to long range. It is best if AA-enabled allies stay near as well. And who wouldn't want to save the princess?

The Tank. She can take hits like that all day.
Paladin. While it's ryder may seem at least as self-righteous as it's namesake, probably more, the Paladin is very... large and in charge.
Features capital-ship grade weapons, such as kinetic cannons and missile launch tubes. This makes it at least on par with Alliance battlecruisers most times. Heavy armor. Pair up with Phoenix to have an anti-ship/anti-ryder combo-team. Just try not to tune to their radio frequency. Your ears will bleed. I hope Kryska's not a traitor... it would be hell trying to take Paladin down once Phoenix gets Kinetic'd in the face.

The (mad) Bomber. Don't get in it's way.
Havoc. A HUGE ryder for a small pilot. Just don't tell either of them so or you might have a bit of a... problem...
Upgraded pirate bomber flown by Cosette Cosmos, Pirate Baroness Extraordinaire. Missiles, torpedoes, heavy AA, and a massive chainsaw used in melee attacks. While I have been unable to... procure... Havoc (as of yet. Come ON Samu!) I notice that its missiles and torps are great against ships, the AA and chainsaw are great against ryders. With its heavy armor close to the Paladin's it could make it in almost any situation. While seemingly underpowered, remember that it spends the duration as an NPC ryder. Crank it up to Space Whale Difficulty. That's what it will look like when it's on your team. Just don't call either of them little if you value your tongue and other appendages.


So if I had to choose one that was the best, I would do so based on pilot, color, and looks.
Given that I am a fan of both Chigara and Ava, it is obvious under those circumstances that Liberty would be my first choice, as Ava does not have a ryder. Color also goes to Liberty. In terms of looks, I prefer Seraphim. If anyone could take Seraphim and make it black and a sapphire blue, that would be much appreciated. Or just give Liberty a sniper rifle.

If Ava had a ryder, then maybe there might be some competition. Paperwork cannon? idk, but she needs character development. lol.
If you're interested in seeing that at all, head over to the ADF thread and read the scenes with Ava in it. You might be amused.

Lots of fun stuff

Personally, I love the shotgun on Claude's Ryder, but I'm to afraid to move her up.

As I get more into Unity, I am learning how to model better, so maybe a Ryder for Ava isn't too far away.

In terms of looks, I prefer Seraphim. If anyone could take Seraphim and make it black and a sapphire blue, that would be much appreciated. Or just give Liberty a sniper rifle.

First simply converts it into a blue colour scheme. Second changes the darkened areas to blue, and then replaces the light/grey areas to a dark grey or black. Second method involves more manipulation and probably isnt up to the games standard without further effort.

PS. if any ryder is a tank, it is the Phoenix. Paladin is clearly a DPS when they can take out a PACT battleship when fully upgraded.

Funny how Seraphim is voted favorite ryder by far and Sola so behind in the waifu war. Hard work, no recognition, life story of our poor Ryuvian Princess that sacrificed herself for her ppl and ws forgotten =(

And i voted on Seraphim here but didnt vote in her for the waifu war too xD

Yeah, I did the same. It's because Seraphim is OP, but Sola herself isn't developed as much in the game.

You weren't here but a while ago before you joined I said that

Serahpim sucks because it's a 1 shot-2 shot wonder but Chigara is best because she can up the accuracy of the Sunrider's Kinetics and blow the shit out of targets anyway.

Not only that but Chigara can disable an entire ship, heal our ships, and sabotage other ships. I've never used symbologists/spellcasters/mages in games but she's the absolute most useful thing I've ever used.

Ya see, I don't either. But with this battlesystem, it's a free turn! I can use her to her fullest potential while not having to worry that they'll be boss bait and killed while casting.

i can see y the seraphim is leading the polls, but her weapons are very limited in diversity, but at least she hits from a distance, and slices like a goddamn hammer.  But I prefer the Black Jack, very well armored, a good number of weapons diversity, and very well balanced, especially after she unleashes her awakening (btw, Samu-kun, please add more opportunities to awaken her in Liberation Day, or if possible, make it an actual command).

If Black Jack's missile capacity was higher or could be increased at a sensible cost I would agree, except the awakening bit. There is plot armor, and there are plot weapons. But you lack a missile boat yourself. Having the option to turn the Jack into one would make some sense.

Shirley's healing power may not be the highest on the forum, but he can damage fools for MAXIMUM DAMAGE. And that's just as fine.

He's right.



It's rare when I slap.

But yes, any new member can be killed instantly...as well as anyone with < 1450 HP...

Well, the issue with the Black Jack is that until 7.2  , until the very end of MoA it was more of a "Jack of all trades, master of none" and that penalized it a lot.
Seraphim and Paladin got a lot more love for their awesome damage with the kinetics, and the Phoenix excelled as dodge tank and anti-ryder warfare.

The buff to energy weapons and the awesome upgrade for the energy cost made Blackjack a lot better in 7.2 .

Right now I'd say all ryders are in quite a nice balance, and both the Liberty and specially the Bianca have become a lot more useful as of late.

I voted for Seraphim, because its sniper has been very nice to have especially in later engagements and I can usually keep it out of harms way.

But I do have a fondness for the Black Jack and the Phoenix with the Liberty being a very helpful unit, making it my second favorite.  8)

I have gotten the most use out of Seraphim by far and I use it the most so I admit to favoring it. I would have Phoenix as second because I find it also useful.

Yeah and I love using the Phoenix in conjunction with Claude's little gravity gun to pull enemies into close quarters with the Phoenix or better yet pulling said enemy into being counterattacked by both the Phoenix and the Black Jack just for kicks sometimes unless its a really tough one XD.

Yeah I was torn between that and the Seraphim. But, other than the Paladin it's the only Ryder that can lay much of a dent into capital units. (Although if Asaga is awoken then the Blackjack is rather OP too).

I'm surprised the Paladin and Seraphim are leading the polls though. I love the Paladin, but that's mainly because I adore heavy/tank units. Also, the reassuring sound of heavy artillery fire in the morning...

We've necroed this post again? lol.

I think because the Black Jack is the most balanced ryder it's less popular than the ones that are OP in one way or another. I don't find the Black Jack all that interesting until Asaga can awaken.

This was made nearly a year ago.

It might be open but it's almost not relevant anymore...and ppl voted for worst ryder anyway. :P
