Drafting rules

This a draft for 4 players

You start off with a fresh save file, New game+ is not allowed.

The Banpresto Original units as well as the battleships are free to use the entire game

Every other unit has to be drafted to be used without penalty, though there will be a lot of exceptions to this. The penalty for using an undrafted unit is 4 turns

Undrafted units are allowed to persuade and sit their asses in a battleship. They are also allowed to cast skills like Strike, Alert, Focus, Guard, Accel and Wall if it keeps enemies from attacking them. All other skills are forbidden. They may not be used for support attacks or team attacks. They may also not be used for friendship, love, rivalry or command aura bonuses. You may not upgrade undrafted units. Equipping parts is still fine, however.

There are exceptions to this and this comes into play with forced deployment. You are allowed the use of any and every forced unit who can't retreat into a battleship. This exception only lasts till they can retreat into a battleship.

Final Stage - 9/270 Turns

Overall it was a pretty good one in my experience. The only disappointing units were Master Gundam and Sazabi but that was due to fact that they never got that much use due to joining late.

Early game was a bit trying since I only had two capable non warship units for a good while but I wound up overlevelled through copious amounts of Gain spam instead so I was using Valor since Stage 7.

One thing that I must note though, R is really skewed to the early joining pilots in terms of kill counts since I only had about 5 units that broke the 50 kill barrier by the end of the game.

My top three units for this draft are:


159 Kills

An overall beast from start to finish, the Gunner Frame was my go to frame of choice since it has comparable power to that of a super robot but with the range of a real. The Eternal Frame was just overkill since it had top tier stats in every category barring HP.

Neo Getter -> Shin Getter

144 Kills/43 Kills/2 Kills (189 Kills overall)

Probably the best unit in the entire game since it learns Valor from since LV15 which is easily attainable by Stage 7 if you use Gain on a couple of the early game bosses. Strangely enough upgrading to Shin felt like a downgrade in some aspects since it finisher suddenly gains a Will requirement and costs more EN than what you can regen per turn at max EN upgrades. The best about Getter though has to be its ability to negate 75% of the attacks it faces at 130 Will during the Getter 2 forms due to Bunshin stacking.

Texas Mack

89 Kills

This one was a big surprise for me since I never actually used it in my normal run. But since this a draft run I finally understood how good this thing really is as a sniper. It drops off late game when enemies start getting better really quickly but by that point in time, it does well as a Support Defend and a Gain/Renew bot.

Honorable mentions go to Zeta Gundam and ZZ Gundam for being good dodge tanks and damage dealers during the annoying endgame.
