MSA anniversary update out:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGmsueM4KkQ
Huge balance patch available here:https://game.snk-corp.co.jp/official/metalslug_attack/news/20210225_06gy2l1.html
An english version is available (click on the tab) but is extremely innacurate, you'll get more info by using the japanese one with google trad but basically most long-range units can't damage the base anymore, status effects like stun were nerfed and so was evasion.FUCK YOU SNK FOR NERFING MY WIFE NOVA
They added a new "mode": Assault Course which is basically ATK/HP/PROD buffs for faction team that you need to grind.
POW Rescue got reworked, you get items for Assault Course if you clear it once a day.
They also introduced a new kind of crank: Fever crank, which is TERRIBLE>1700 medals per play>only 0.5% chance of getting 80 part of the featured unit (Fate/GO is 0.8% for a featured unit FYI)>you only get the avatar of the unit after spending 83300 medals
It has a "safety measure" but can it really be called one when you're basically forced to use it to get the unit...
And since it's the anniversary update, they are giving away 10 crank for free everyday, except the pool is filled with powercreeped units
As for the new units:
Alice & Heart, pretty good for PF main, too bad, she's locked behind the TERRIBLE Fever crank.
Armored Fio, a rather mediocre unit.
Tatyana, Good ranged DPS for PM main.
Death Star Mira, basically Special Arsinoe/Christmas Abigail but for PM main.

Rebel main got basically shafted hard this update since we still don't have a decent opener.
No new AS and fuck you SNK for nerfing my waifu.
