  1. Need name suggestions for the Taiwanese costumes? Easy lol.
    Male costume: (Run! It’s Lu Bu’s armor!)
    Female costume: (Run again! It’s Lu Bu’s daughter Lu Lingqi’s armor!)
    Those should be the names for costumes.

    1. *goes watch the Chinese Genocide Simulator, er, Dynasty Warriors 8 trailer on Steam*

      Eh, Lingqi wears more that *that* at least. Her default outfit almost passes for legit armor even. Some of the other ladies OTOH…

    1. “While you won’t gain items or experience, you can earn some Challenge Miles and even a title when you clear the quest. Unlike in the actual Grand Prix Preliminaries, players will be able to place items from the item menu onto the field.”

    2. The actual Grand Prix Preliminaries are in reference to the offline tournament that was mentioned in the post above. There’s no need to drop items on the field when you have 25,000 AC on the line.
