Managing your friends list

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:

6*
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

4-5*
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.
0 - all the rest

Interesting, I cycle through friends but never paid attention to what they were using. As for myself I am using Lappland if anyone on my list needs her for chapter 6(I do have several newer players on my list), Skadi because I find her to be rare and Magallan because she’s best girl. I have them all e2 lvl 20 skill rank 7. I am working on getting a bigger roster first then I will cap out some units.

Edit: Going through my own friends list I have:
6*
9 - Silverash
7 - Blaze
6 - Eyjafjalla
5 - Angelina
4 - Ch’en
3 - Exusiai, Ifrit, Magallan
2 - Hoshiguma, Nian
1 - Mostima, Saria
0 - all the rest

5*
3 - Blue Poison, Meteorite
2 - Liskarm
1 - Amiya, Astesia, FEater, Lappland, Mayer, Pramanix, Projekt Red, Ptilopsis, Reed, Skyfire, Sora, Specter, Texas, Warfarin
0 - all the rest

4* and lower

3 - Myrtle
1 - Cuora, Shaw
0 - all the rest
I noticed all 4 Ch’en were maxed out but the rest are around e2 30-50 skill rank 7 for the most part.

Thanks for the reply,

Do you see yourself getting the daily bonus often?

Skadi and Magallan both seem rare enough for people to want to use and try, and Lappland is very popular and useful. Looks like a good mix to me.

Mine are Platinum, Ifrit and Mostima. Though I rotate the 3rd slot a fair bit. Once the event ends tomorrow, I’ll switch it to Aak again for a bit.

Definitely agree that some show up more than others. Sadly none of the ones I have as supports are that unusual, but I have them all M3d for hopefully some extra usefulness. Right now using E2:75 Eyja with S2, E2:62 Saria S2 (in the process of leveling both), and E2:50 Meteorite S1 - sometimes swapped out for Pramanix or BP. I usually get the support bonus, but not every day.

My friends list is:
6*:
19 - Silverash
11 - Ch’en
8 - Exusiai
7 - Eyja, Saria, Blaze
5 - Ifrit, Nian
4 - Hellagur
3 - Angelina
2 - Mositma, Skadi, Schwarz
1 - Hoshiguma

4-5*:
11 - Lappland
5 - Meteorite, Blue Poison,
3 - Texas, Projekt Red, Specter,
2 - Pramanix, FEater, Myrtle, Reed, Liskarm, Executor, Silence
1 - Ceylon, Glaucus, Indra, Grani, Cuora, Breeze, Frostleaf

I know some days I don’t get the bonus credits, those days are noticeable. With my current base as it is I get 143 without and 163 with and I see 163 more often than not.

How do you see you get the daily bonus?
I can receive Friends request even if my list is full.(Bug?)
I use at least 3 supports units per day to complete daily missions( with map 1-12).

I try to make everyone equal when using friend supports(with a list), but clues are more difficult to handle, because i give only clue they need and have.
The average level of my friends 75, Highest 104 and lowest 49
9 have only 2 supports slots.

Highest Operators Lvl E2:
Lv90 Blaze/Nian /Saria /SilvearAsh x3 /Siege

Nothing tells you, but when you hit ‘claim’ in the credit store, if you pay attention each day, you’ll start to notice.

Not as far as I know. I keep my friends list at 48/49 (what I mean by ‘cycle’ is that I delete people) to allow requests and for me to be able to keep sending requests as well.

The fact that you only see 1 Ch’en and Schwartz means that I’m your only friend who has them on there :fgo_ereshwoah:
