I’ve played fgo for A while now. I’m mainly f2p but with the sq I get from completing singularities I get 4 and 5* servant. I see ppl on YT having around 60 tickets. My question is is there other ways to get sq and/or tickets?
Besides main quests and free quests from singularities these are the ways to get SQ and tickets as a ftp player:
You can get a set amount of Tickets (10) each month from the mana prism shop.
You also can get 2 SQ per week from doing all the weekly quests.
You get SQ and tickets (equivalent to a SQ a day) from consecutive logins. Every 50 logins you get 20 SQ.
You also can get SQ from interlude and rank up quests. These appear as you level and ascend servants.
After bond level 5 you can get SQ by increasing bond with your servants. Lower rarity ones often give apples instead but higher rarity servants give SQ. Here is a break down of bond rewards:
You will also get SQ or tickets from events and as an apology for maintenance.
I personally have been saving since January and currently have accumulated 300 sq and 50 tickets from all of these methods.
Should point out he got a few things wrong. It's 5 tickets a month from the shop and 1 ticket every 7 consecutive logins. You also get a quartz on the 2nd and 4th day and 2 quartz on the 6th day of a 7 day login bonus stretch. So around 4 tickets and 16 quartz a month if you make sure to login every day, plus the 2 extra quartz a week if you complete the master missions. Other than that you do get quartz for total logins as well.
Other than that you can get quartz and tickets from events, maintenance and social media campaigns.
Tickets and SQ are a fairly rare commodity in relation to the summon drop rates. So people tend to save them up until a servant they want is featured rather than rolling at every opportunity.
Just play the game. Finishing missions, log in every day, and grab the tickets out of the monthly shop. Those are the primary methods of acquiring tickets and SQ.
One thing to add is that folks streaming on YT are more often than not whales (or maybe dolphins, if I get the terminology right). Unless you're going to follow them and spend thousands of dollars (or your equivalent), don't fall into the trap of believing that you will ever have their lineups. At an average of one SSR per 300 SQ or the equivalent, you're just not going to get a lot.
Not sure if you were mistaken or not about summon tickets, but whales probably do 10-rolls most of the time. Maybe they just don't bother that much with all the singles they accumulate? That's just speculation though. I don't see why they wouldn't use them first like most of us :)
