JP Aggregate Leader List 09/02/18

Hello to all my readers on the tier lists. It's been exactly an entire month since my last post, and I would like to address and answer some questions, as well as fill in on the people who don't know about this long delay.

The Aggregate list as well as my (short) comment/rant is at the bottom, if you want to skip my story and our many hardships.

What happened to BakaData?


For those unaware, our site at BakaData.com had hosting issues back on around August 2nd. The other content creators on the site posts manga and anime related content. While they were 99% sure they don't infringe upon any copyright laws, companies (and possibly other malicious users) decided to frequently hit our site with DMCA complaints. As a result this affected our trust with our host and the entire site had to get taken down.

For the next month until now, we had to write and design everything from scratch. We also had to set up a new server, as well as import over most of our posts from the old site, manually. This is what has taken up the majority of my time.

What's going to happen now?


I have prepared a leader list today to signal that we are still alive. The work on the new site is almost finished, and this here is a prelude for the launch that will happen within this week! When that's over with, it will hopefully be business as usual: a leader or sub list post every week on our new site.

Forums?


We still have some back-end problems to resolve, so in the mean time I have to resort to posting on our now official BakaData forums (Also included is some shameless advertising).

In addition, we are hoping to ditch the embedded commenting system we had on our old site, and move that here. Any discussions on the tier lists, as well as any PAD-related discussions and/or comments are more than welcomed here.

Finally, the Meta


In that one month time while I was away, Awoken Dark Megatron happened. I'm sure most if not all of you have known by now, that Gungho has done it again. DMeta now stands (alone) at the top of the list.

As a result, the Aggregate Leader List got really funky. I even had to go in and do some manual changes and adjustments myself. Side note, Yusuke actually is supposed to be in TIer 1 as well, but the power difference in their leader skill is just too much. I had to demote him to Tier 2 myself before posting.

Finally, some characters from Gintama Collab, Gungho Collab, and Beach Seasonals have made it onto the list. I will probably find another time to talk about them in detail, but the gist of it is that most of these new meta leads are starting to have 2x HP multipliers built into their leader skill. Or have a strong enough shield to compensate.

An abrupt ending I know, but I must get back to my other duties.

Thanks for reading and understanding! More news and posts will come later this week!

    Looking at Mega Metatron...I think I still prefer Yuki. Helps that I still can't get 7-combo pre-skyfall consistently...

    That said, I'm wondering how Mega Ryune and Mega Sylvie will affect things. Probably depends on how much oomph Combo Orbs can hope to supply. (At least GungHo is trying to diversify the metagame beyond just Enhanced Combo.) I've sketched out a team for Mega Ryune, at the very least:

    *Mega Ryune
    R. Isis
    R. Gabriel
    A. Mori (I'm hoping his reincarnation will include a third water row)
    R. Idunn or R. Lakshmi (Idunn supplies haste, Lakshmi lets me have all five attributes--which makes Isis's Guard Break SA viable)
    *Mega Ryune

    EDIT: Leaning towards Lakshmi now for the Super Bonus Attack SA (I'm guessing normal Bonus Attack is for when she's used in a Two-Prong team). I'm just hoping I can do without haste (poor Mori) or spike...although ATK*196 might not need that much spike in the first place.

      Woah, first real PAD reply!

      Anyway, Mega Meta is still quite dominant. Can easily tank hits if you flub combos, for example. It helps to have the +2 second awoken badge.

      My consensus on Mega Ryune and Sylvie is that, while they provide something fresh especially for row teams, they are still weaker than what we already have in terms of 2x HP leads (Ippo, Barbara Julie, Metatron). Combo orbs, from the looks of it, is quite niche from the JP videos on YouTube.

      As for your team, it depends on what dungeon you're tackling. For anything other than Alt Arena, your team looks fine, but remember that you need to have a way to heal, in case of 99% gravities. Double Kuroyuri can work if they're inherited onto short CD water cards (such as Revo Isis). Mel's TPA Heal also works. Finally, remember that Revo Idunn's active skill now also gives 2.5x RCV for 3 turns so she's worth considering over Gabriel or Mori. You have enough orb changers from Ryune alone, IMO.
