I’ll start this by saying that I try to use a support every day for the friend credit bonus and daily mission. It also seems that my own supports get used at least once every day as well.
I’ve been cycling friends for a while now (I’ve tried my best to not delete GP folk - feel free to readd me if I axed you by mistake)
Even doing that, looking out for unique units on the refresh, there’s still such a massive bias towards certain operators.
For example. the top 8 are almost equal in number to all the other ops combined. For 6 stars, there are no Nightingales, Skadis or Aaks and yet there are 12 Eyjas without any of them being M3.
Looking at the 4 and 5 stars, I’ve managed to do enough cycling to only have 2 operators above 5, Lappland and Meteorite, and 26 different ops in total.
As for max level, there’s this one guy who added me recently who has 3 max level units up but other than him there are only 2 others - a Siege and amazingly, an Estelle.
Here’s the full list if anyone cares or wants to compare:
12 - Eyja
11 - SA
8 - Blaze, Exu
7 - Ange
6 - Saria
5 - Ch’en, Hellagur
4 - Siege
3 - Nian, Maggy
2 - Shining, Ifrit, Hoshi, Most
1 - Schwarz
0 - Skadi, Nightingale, Aak
7 - Lappland, Meteorite
4 - BP, Spec, Red
3 - Ptilo, Myrt
2 - Texas, Waifu, Execu
1 - Estelle, Gummy, Vigna, Broca, Zima, FB, Nearl, FEater, Prov, Aste, Manti, Sky, Grani, Indra, Silence, Plat.
all the rest
