Hey everyone. It’s Deven and I’m coming at you with something new. Well it’s not all new. It’s the remixed version of my How To on Love Live Events.

So I’ve been looking into stuff more with my immenent return to Love Live and I wanted to share it with you. Some of it will be rehashed from the original guide but a lot of it will be new.

I know that there are fans of the blog that play both the Japanese and English versions of the game. I used to play only the English version but I need to help out people on both sides of the game.

So if you want to be an Event Master, you’ll need some tools first:

1.The Love Live School Idol Festival(Duh)
2.LLSIF Practice App
3.The Love Live LP Notifier App
4.A Cell Phone with Hotspot(if you don’t have consistent internet like with a phone or will be away from wifi for some time)
5.Guts and Determination!

Now in the original version I did this Token Events however this is going to be for all three types of Events, Token, Score Match, and Medley Festival.

So to know what kind of Events going to come up, English version users can check the Love Live School Idol Festival page on the Love Live Wiki or check out Love Live School Idol Festival Kouhi.me. They’ll be able to tell you what’s the event coming up and the event song. If you’re on the Japanese you’ll be screwed.

So now that we know the event song, we practice the week before. So that’s where the Practice app comes in.

So a lot of people say that the Practice app sucks and you should use another regions Love Live to practice. I disagree.

While the Practice app doesn’t have any way of showing you when you’re going wrong, it does have the benefit of letting you build up your muscle memory and visual memory for the notes and where they go. That allows you to perform better during the Event than if you went in cold.

So you practice for a week up until the event.

If the Event that happens to be next is a Score Match, you’ll need to optimize your team to the best it can be.

The Ultimate Combination of Idols: How To Make the Best Team

First off you need to know the types of teams:
Some of this are official names that the fandom uses and some are terms I use myself

1. Standard Color Teams
-Standard Color Teams are your standard Auto Formation Teams. They’ll pull together the 9 cards that you have in a color with the highest stat. So if you’re going for a Pure team, the Auto Formation will bring together the 9 highest ranked Pure Cards

2. Healer Teams
-Healer Teams are teams with cards that have skills to restore stamina. Typically with Rare cards, it’s the Pure cards that typically get stamina boosting skills. However any UR or SR has the potential to have this ability. You typically use these teams if you’re not that good at Rhythm games so you can use the Stamina boosting to hold on.

3. Perfect Lock Teams
-Perfect Lock Teams are teams with cards that have skills to ease the timing window for hitting the notes. To get this ability you’ll need SR or UR cards because no Rares have this ability. You typically use these teams if you can hold on and end the song but you can’t get a high level combo so you use this team to get that combo.

4. Score Booster Teams
-Score Booste Teams are teams with cards that have skills that boost your score if you hit a certain amount of Perfects or certain amount of combos. A lot of cards have this ability so it’s pretty easy to make this team.

For Token Events, you’ll typically need a Perfect Lock Team to maximize your combo so you can get the highest amount of combos to get the most Tokens. That’s to get the Tokens. For the Event Song, you need a Score Booster Team combined with a Perfect Lock Team to  get the highest amount for your rank and your combo.

For Score Matches, you’ll need to a Score Booster Team to push your score up as high as possible.

So now it’s time for the event. Now this works for all the events in terms of the LP.

So look at this.

There are 24 hours in a day and LP refills at 10 LP per hour.

24 hours x 10 LP per hour = 240 LP

Now at this point it depends on skill. You can choose to be more efficient and play the Expert songs or play the Hard Songs. I’ll do the Expert Songs example for sake of explaining the best way to go about it.

240 LP / 25 per Expert Play = 9.6 Expert Plays

So the LP you get over the course of one day allows you to play the Expert songs at least 9 times. Of course to make sure that you truly efficient and spend that LP as soon as you refill you need a good and constant internet connection.

If you’re at a University then you’ll be fine. However for those of us that don’t have good consistent internet you’ll have to have a cell phone with a hot spot to make sure your internet’s with you always.

So also note this. During a Token Event, the amount of tokens you get depends on the song’s difficulty and the song’s LP cost:

Easy: 5 Tokens
Normal: 10 Tokens
Hard :16 Tokens
Expert 27 Tokens

That leads to this:

9.6 Expert Plays x 27 tokens per Expert Play = 259.2 tokens

So now you have hefty amount of tokens so you play the Hard version of the song.

259.2 tokens / 45 per Hard Event Play = 5.76 Hard Event Plays

And you can play it about 5 times in one day.

And this is how much Event points you can get.

5.76 Hard Event Play x 230 points average per Hard Event Play = 1324.8

And plus the Event points you got from doing the songs.

1324.8 + 259.2 = 1584 Event points

These numbers are consistent through all normal Events and the average cap for getting the Event Card is around 15,000 I believe.

I think that you should be getting the card around the 6th or the 7th day of the event. Mostly because we aren’t even counting the times that you level up.

I think that you should be getting the card around the 6th or the 7th day of the event. Mostly because we aren’t even counting the times that you level up.

So now you’ve gotten your SR Maki, Eli, or which ever card you like. I bet you want to idolize it too. Of course you do.

So I’ll be telling you how to get the full power of those lovely little cards.

Note: This will be put into my own words from a Guide on Reddit that I will link below.

Love Live Guide

1. Be ready to spend some Love Gems.

Now there are calculators and Event Cutoff Predictors for both the English and Japanese versions. The Japanese version is better because it’s done more events. However the English does okay.

That being said, you’ll need to be willing to use at least 10-12 Love gems for Tier 2(One more Event Card to Idolize) and 15-17 Love Gems for Tier 1(Two more Event cards)

2. Don’t Look at the Ladder Rank until two days before the end of the event.

Looking at the ladder is only going to make you panic. Take your time and follow the guide above to a tee. Also the main reason if not looking until this point is with two days left, the Event Predictor is going to be far more accurate so you can work towards a visible goal now. So you need to play and use your Love Gems accordingly.

3. Check every two hours on the last two days to make sure that you’re at least 1200 points above the cutoff

Now this point you should be in the tier you want but now you have to fight to stay there. Especially in the last 30 minutes before the end.

4. Run down those Love Gems to stay 1200 ahead of the game.

Why? Because according to those dudes at Reddit, the cutoff has never jumped more than 1200 points during the last 30 minutes so you’ll be safe.

I’ll even show you the breakdown:

7 25 LP songs = 7 x 27 tokens = 189 tokens
180 tokens = 1 4x Hard Play = Max 932 event points
932 + 189 = 1121 event points

So you see. You’ll be safe.

So that should be it. If you follow this guide, you have a high if not guaranteed SR Event Card in your possession.
