Lots of things.

Today was a good day. In Eli's Medley Festival I didn't tier. It was a nice steampunk design, but I wanted to save up for a UR (and oh the happiness, just wait). The T2 tiers for that reached and T1. Pretty crazy, right?

I also got a Pure MedFes. I swear I was at 703 combo... the highest I've ever gotten, wiping out that 503ish from September. About to finish Sweet, Sweet Holiday. BUT THEN I missed up on the last few notes. I know, I'm so upset. But at least there will be more chances, right?

During this MedFes I got 2-3 Alpacas and 2 Scouting Tickets. One gave me ninja Maki. The other gave me Nico (after I chanted for her). Only problem was, that was a Rare. Can't win them all.

The best thing came around 3:20. Before then I saw the new Victorian Kotori UR. I was so thrilled. Okay, so I only had 100 Loveca prepared. Wasn't really sure what would happen. So I draw once, got the ninja Rin. That's officially my first SR idolized (still upset about Pana) and it reaffirms how great idolized looks compared to unidolzed. Sometimes. My Scouting Ticket only gave me a Maki Rare, too.

So, then I draw again... AND BAM THE RED ENVELOPE FLIES OUT. First scout that had a UR fly out. I didn't know what to expect (well, I did, but!) and I held my breath and it was my beautiful Victorian Kotori coming home. <3 Way too happy for my own good. I love my new Kotori UR so much. I just wish i could have her ballgown idolized version. That dress is totally my favorite kind of design, and I'm sure Nozomi will be amazing when she's out. So far we can see the skirt of a purple dress peeking into Kotori's card... so obvious is obvious.

Lots of SIF first for me today. Halloween this year is being great to me. I played the game so much today I feel kind of burned out, though. The other Eli event isn't too bad. Still have to work on cleaning out those N cards.
So I didn't tier for JP Hanayo. With one or two more hours, I could have done it. I had 20516 and needed at least 21610. My luck.

I used the Green Ticket after the event, and no surprise, I ended up with the Rhythmical Charm Smile Nozomi just to rub my salt wounds a little deeper. Yes, I should have started a bit earlier And i planned to, but I was up for a day and only slept for a few hours before (7ish-11 PM), so it had to be... should have done it the morning before. At least I got three hours of intense grinding in. I tried to do too many short Hard songs when I probably should grinded Love Novels instead—the only EX I can play right now on JP. That would have driven me crazy, maybe, but who cares.

On the other hand, the EN rice goddess Hanayo is looking to be pretty easy so far. The Score Match is easier to tell these things because there's no 4x to wait for. I've actually slacked off a bit in EN so far. It's one of those rare events, or not so rare with Klab shaking up the shedule, that starts a day before the JP ends and it feels so claustrophobic. Either way, that tier is looking pretty low. I"m standing at 68 Love Gems as of this post and Maybe I'll try to see if I can go for her! You know, earlier than the other Hanayo.

Maybe the other was a wake-up call in these things since this is my first time tiering for these events. But I'm level 94 in JP, and 68 in EN, so I've gotten pretty far!

There's also an SR and UR poll I voted in tonight. I voted for a lot of URs I liked for the login bonus, but I may have made mistakes with Maki and Nozomi. Maybe—but I still liked those SRs. Yes, I said SRs. Well, there were other SRs I liked too. Well, I'll either go over that later or see what the poll says at the end of the month.

Speaking of Maki, Maki has a new UR after ninja Niko went away. It has dogs in it. It's an animal set and I'm happy about it! Kotori's card isn't included... but it'll probably have a bird. I hope not, for once. I want her to have another animal to be associated with. Meanwhile, Niko has some chicks, which I believe show up in a few other cards. But they're cute.
Two days ago I scouted my very first non-promo UR. My promos on EN are okay, but it's nothing compared to seeing a Rare envelope flying out of the blue voucher box and thinking that it'll be an SR (Rin curse prevails). But nope! I saw a pink envelope and the rest of history. I thought I wouldn't be the squealer type (because I'm not), but I apparently did despite all that. I had 50 LGs to kill and I thought I'd go out of my way to scout. On my quest for the ninja Niko, of course—which proved no success after three attempts and I'm still salty. But! I did recieve Flower Crown Niko and Cyber ver. Kotori, among a few other SRs. So I'm not too upset now that I finally have more Smile cards to use in general.

But the UR was January Honok. I've looked at that card in passing and thought it looked really pretty, so I'm not complaining to have my new Cool Honoka. I even arranged for her to be my main leader and to have colorful SIF background to support her colorful charm. Funnily enough, it doesn't stop there. Someone in my JP version also has the same Honoka and background. I noticed right after I checked my friend's list to see what other URs they had as their mains. Someone has good taste.

Currently I checked a while ago and I saw I'm also 9,600ish in Umi's current EN magical girl event. That's... very low now that 4x has started. Usually I rock the 2000 mark even in token events lately. Are the cut-offs going to be that low, or am I just kicking more ass than usual by playing so much? I dunno, but I may have to tier if this keeps up. Always need magic girls around.

Speaking of the event, the event story has shorter segments but they're still pretty cute moments for Umi and Honoka. The story feels like it's more about Honoka than Umi though because it's about Honoka running away from home with her father not approving she puts so much time into u's... Well, the setting is Umi's house and it's not really running away because Honoka is confiding in her as a friend. Good enough?
I played this game for basically six hours straight. That’s the longest I’ve grinded since I started this game believe it or not and I wasn’t even tiering. Mostly for Honoka’s card (my Smile team, RIP), but I also had some good LP to burn for my beloved Kotori. And yeah, I’m not the highest ranked in EN yet. So…

You can imagine my annoyance when I realize less than about 25 minutes before the events ends that I literally have 5 points left to get Honoka! I’m seriously like… wow, this is my luck. This is why I can’t pull a UR. So, even though I burned 4 of the maintenance Love Gems to get Honoka already, I go the extra mile and pay one more and get her immediately. I ended using as much as I could after that to get under 20,000 points. It worked—I even got in the mid-10,000, which is much different to how hard it was to get out of 20,000 for whatever reason. Well, at least I’ll get 2 Love Gems back and a green Scouting Ticket.

Oh! And in Kotori’s event, I was lucky enough to get a gold prize yesterday. I didn’t know what it was and expected one of Niko’s siblings as I had on Saturday happen BUT THEN it was a green scouting ticket too! And for a set of Normal songs because my teams in both versions are still iffy, pleasedon'tstomponme.

I’m done with this game now until I’m forced to drain my LP for Kotori in a few hours. If KLab can’t show love for Honoka, I’m glad I could. I pray we don’t have events this short anymore. It’s so much easier to play this game on Thursday night after my school week ends.
Love Live! has taken over my life recently in the last few months. And as such, I've looked at the upcoming events. More of them catch my eye than the ones this year. I still regret not starting this last September when, you know, the app was starting in English... but I just no idea how addicting this thing would be! I even downloaded it and started. But I thought i made a mistake and didn't pick it up again until May. Learned my lesson. And I missed so many events and chances for Love Gems, ahhh.

Anyway, I think I'll make a list of the upcoming events that catch my eye so I can plan better for them. Right now the Kotori (JP) and Honoka (JP) events are on the swing. The Honoka one is eight days long and it's probably going to cost me some Love Gems. I dread this. Or, because of this, at least go over all the upcoming events so I wheedle out the ones that won't be as important to get serious over, or to T2 for. There's only a few I can do because Love Gems are so hard to get in the EN version.
