Three or more? So you’re going to have to have at least one Accel Gift up in order to actually stand six rear-guards to proc this thing? Is that worth it? Well, you get 2 units, but they’re rested at first so sadly doesn’t translate to another attack, then you go +2 even if your board sucked enough to only have 2 rear-guards at worst, +6 at best, and then two rear-guards, either a whole column or something on the Accel Circle and maybe V Coral Assault on a good day?

So, uh, it’s not terrible. Certainly the most solid first Stride that Aqua Force has gotten so far, with the power to draw and murder…and then what? I actually looked up what G Units you could Stride into after this, relative to the level of power of Premium Collection G Units, and I saw like ONE G Unit that was worth it, and that was Engulf Maelstrom, if only because re-riding gets you more Accel 2 Circles to recoup the ride. It’s sad most of the generic ones are just so…terrible.  

Solid. More than the other G Units for Aqua, which is very sad. Where has Power Creep taken us, man?
