Tags May Be Erased

Tags may be erased

It is possible for set tags to be erased upon completion of the recruitment period. Should this happen, the possible Operator that you will get will be chosen from the remaining tags. The following are conditions for tags to get erased:

  • Recruitment length
  • No Operator meets the selected tags

Use Expedited Plan to Acquire Operator Immediately

Using the Expedited Plan can bypass the required Recruitment Period & can allow you to immediately recruit the Operator. Use these in case you were able to select "Top Operator" qualification, or you want to get new recruits while changing qualification tags.

Recruit Up To Four Characters

Fix SilverAsh tag please! its Guard not Vanguard!

Steve 5

Yes I can confirm, this is almost accurate. I've tried some of the following Tags and it's really drops...
you know, it's TEXAS :D

Fix the Indra recrutiment, its Guard instead of Vanguard

Anonymous 3

The article has a critical mistake: It's using the "Supporter" tag instead of the "Support" tag in many cases.
It's the same difference as between "Defender" and Defense" which the article did distinguish.
Support and Defense are traits which many different Operator cl***es can have.
