Event Mechanics
  • Select the course you wish to play (Beginner, Normal, Hard, Extreme). Each course contains 5 rounds, with one song per round. As you advance through each round, it will be more likely that the next song you get is harder than the previous.
    • In the event that you fail a song in a round, your event points, G, and EXP will be halved (unless you fail on the first song, in which case you get nothing). You will also lose all Gold/Silver/Bronze rewards that you have collected.
    • Beginning with the second round, there will be a "Stop and Receive Rewards" option, if you feel that the song is too difficult for you. The festival will end and you will receive all of the rewards that you have collected.
    • You are allowed to pause between songs. The current status will be saved.
  • The song for each round is selected from a pool of 8 songs. It is possible for the same song to appear twice in the same course.
    • The songs for each course will have the following difficulties:
      • Beginner: 1★ - 6★ (Easy and Normal)
      • Normal: 4★ - 8★ (Normal and Hard)
      • Hard: 6★ - 10★ (Hard and Expert)
      • Extreme: 9★ - 11★ (Random and Daily Expert)
  • After the round song is displayed, there is a chance that bonuses will activate. Up to 3 bonuses can be active at a time, and certain combinations will trigger extra special bonuses.
    • The effect of the bonuses is limited to that round only.
    • The further you progress in a course, the more likely that a bonus will activate.
  • Select the unit that you wish to use for the song. The unit may be changed for each round.
  • You can use G to "arrange" the songs, much like in Medley Festival, to provide special effects. Note that the arrangements will reset after each round.
  • Once you clear the round, you will collect event points, G, EXP, and Gold/Silver/Bronze rewards. The further you get in a course, the more event points, G, and EXP you will collect, and the higher the likelihood of Gold and Silver rewards appearing.
    • You will only receive everything that you have collected after you clear the fifth round or once you select the "Stop and Receive Rewards" option.

Event Mechanics
  • Select the course you wish to play (Beginner, Normal, Hard, Extreme). Each course contains 5 rounds, with one song per round. As you advance through each round, it will be more likely that the next song you get is harder than the previous.
    • In the event that you fail a song in a round, your event points, G, and EXP will be halved (unless you fail on the first song, in which case you get nothing). You will also lose all Gold/Silver/Bronze rewards that you have collected.
    • Beginning with the second round, there will be a "Stop and Receive Rewards" option, if you feel that the song is too difficult for you. The festival will end and you will receive all of the rewards that you have collected.
    • You are allowed to pause between songs. The current status will be saved.
  • The song for each round is selected from a pool of 8 songs. It is possible for the same song to appear twice in the same course.
    • The songs for each course will have the following difficulties:
      • Beginner: 1★ - 6★ (Easy and Normal)
      • Normal: 4★ - 8★ (Normal and Hard)
      • Hard: 6★ - 10★ (Hard and Expert)
      • Extreme: 9★ - 11★ (Random and Daily Expert)
  • After the round song is displayed, there is a chance that bonuses will activate. Up to 3 bonuses can be active at a time, and certain combinations will trigger extra special bonuses.
    • The effect of the bonuses is limited to that round only.
    • The further you progress in a course, the more likely that a bonus will activate.
  • Select the unit that you wish to use for the song. The unit may be changed for each round.
  • You can use G to "arrange" the songs, much like in Medley Festival, to provide special effects. Note that the arrangements will reset after each round.
  • Once you clear the round, you will collect event points, G, EXP, and Gold/Silver/Bronze rewards. The further you get in a course, the more event points, G, and EXP you will collect, and the higher the likelihood of Gold and Silver rewards appearing.
    • You will only receive everything that you have collected after you clear the fifth round or once you select the "Stop and Receive Rewards" option.

    • Event rules are as follows:
Event Mechanics
  • Select the course you wish to play (Beginner, Normal, Hard, Extreme). Each course contains 5 rounds, with one song per round. As you advance through each round, it will be more likely that the next song you get is harder than the previous.
    • In the event that you fail a song in a round, your event points, G, and EXP will be halved (unless you fail on the first song, in which case you get nothing). You will also lose all Gold/Silver/Bronze rewards that you have collected.
    • Beginning with the second round, there will be a "Stop and Receive Rewards" option, if you feel that the song is too difficult for you. The festival will end and you will receive all of the rewards that you have collected.
    • You are allowed to pause between songs. The current status will be saved.
  • The song for each round is selected from a pool of 8 songs. It is possible for the same song to appear twice in the same course.
    • The songs for each course will have the following difficulties:

      • Normal: 4★ - 8★ (Normal and Hard)
      • Hard: 6★ - 10★ (Hard and Expert)
      • Extreme: 9★ - 11★ (Random and Daily Expert)
  • After the round song is displayed, there is a chance that bonuses will activate. Up to 3 bonuses can be active at a time, and certain combinations will trigger extra special bonuses.
    • The effect of the bonuses is limited to that round only.
    • The further you progress in a course, the more likely that a bonus will activate.
  • Select the unit that you wish to use for the song. The unit may be changed for each round.
  • You can use G to "arrange" the songs, much like in Medley Festival, to provide special effects. Note that the arrangements will reset after each round.
  • Once you clear the round, you will collect event points, G, EXP, and Gold/Silver/Bronze rewards. The further you get in a course, the more event points, G, and EXP you will collect, and the higher the likelihood of Gold and Silver rewards appearing.
    • You will only receive everything that you have collected after you clear the fifth round or once you select the "Stop and Receive Rewards" option.
