Oh, hey, hi! We are Cool Baby FC, a stylist association (basically a guild) in the mobile game Love Nikki - Dress UP Queen. This association was started somewhat recently over on the Unofficial Giant Bomb Discord Server by me (@audiobusting) and JustinOnTap, who are both too hopelessly deep into this game to quit now. I am posting this recruitment/friend code sharing thread here in case anyone is interested to join the association, or even to start playing the game. Active players are obviously preferred, but anyone is welcome to join!

Huh? What is Love Nikki - Dress UP Queen?

I realised that this might not be a well known title here in the Giant Bomb community, so I guess I should try to explain this game a little. As might be obvious by now, it is a dress up fashion game on mobile platforms. Yeah, yeah, I know. (And for those who might care: the game was developed by Tencent, and published by Elex earlier this year. Don't quote me on that, though. Background information on the Nikki games is a bit hard to find in English.)

Better writers than I am have written about this game out there, so I recommend finding and reading some of those articles if you're curious (links: herearesome). I will vouch for how unexpectedly fun it is to play, despite how janky the app can be, and how opaque a lot of its mechanics are. Most of the game is a cycle of coordinating outfits to defeat others', which gives you more clothes to craft, evolve, and eventually wear to defeat even more people with. Might sound simple, but it is more involved than it looks.

For a free-to-play mobile game like this, it is pretty generous in its economy. There have been moments where I thought I hit a dreaded paywall, but it so far have turned out that I only needed some patience and a better understanding of the game systems to break through. There's always stuff to do and daily rewards to claim that let you play the game at a reasonable pace for free. (That said, I did spend some real money on the game, because I felt compelled to give back at some point.)

And the PVP... The PVP might be the main draw to the game for me. In Competition mode, the game will set a theme for everyone to style to over a few days. All players get to judge what people have submitted, voting for the better outfit out of two at a time. You get rewarded at the end of the "season" based on how many votes you get, compared to the rest of the playerbase. It's basically a fashion thunderdome!

So, how do I join the association?

  1. You first need to play the story campaign up until Maiden 3-2, which will unlock Stylist Associations. This could take a few days to get to from 1-1.
  2. You then enter the Stylist Association from the main menu
  3. Search for Cool Baby FC by ID. The Cool Baby FC Association ID is 5972.
  4. Submit your application and wait. We will try to review applications and accept them as soon as we can. We can only have up to 20 members as a LV.1 association, but there's still enough empty slots for now.

What does the "FC" stand for?

What doesn't it stand for? It doesn't stand for Football Club, for one.

How do I contribute to the association?

You can go to the Library and sort material once a day for free; that will give growth to the association and give you association coins. You can also spend coins to sort more, or spend diamonds to donate books.

You can also head to Commissions and do the daily-limited requests. This will help unlock more commission requests and clothes for the entire association, when we have collectively done enough of them. If you're feeling generous, you can spend diamonds to light a wishing star and temporarily boost everyone's scores.

What do I gain out of doing all this?

The more the association grows, the more rewards will be available to us! You can spend the coins you earn in the library on permanent upgrades, or in the association store that refreshes its stock periodically. You can also exchange the rewards you get from commission requests for unique clothes in the workshop. There isn't much more interaction beyond that, though you also get to chat with other members in the association's bulletin board.

Let's be friends!

Lastly, this is unrelated to the association specifically, but I thought I might as well put a call to exchange Friend ID's. It's the only way (other than connecting through Facebook) to add friends in this game, which helps in giving each other more stamina and unlocking more clothes. Friends also get to show up on each other's leaderboards. But yeah, it's basically the Friend Code system. I honestly don't understand why you can't just add friends through the association member list.

Anyway, feel free to post your ID and I'll list them here. You can find your ID in-game, above the search bar when searching for friends.

Oh man, I got way into this game for a while after reading about it in the waypoint article you linked. I actually created the barebones wiki page here on giantbomb. I don't think I can commit enough to this right now to be a valuable association member, but if anyone wants to be friends: my name in the game is "Hans Maulwurf", my ID should be: "100396252"

Cool to see some people on here get into this.

@hans_maulwurf: Nice! I'll add your ID to the list. The association is still pretty empty, so don't worry about committing to it just yet, if you do want to join. (e: actually, it seems like the ID leads to a "Rachel V"? Is that right?)

@audiobusting: Yeah that's correct. That's my characters name, the other my profile name (which is shown under "friends" for me, so I thought that's the name you need). Cool, then I'll gladly join for now.

Boy i wish i had seen this thread before deleting the app from my phone and not having a social media backup. (No way in hell was i linking this to my facebook...)

I'm surprised that there's even ONE person on this board that actually plays it, much less a handful of people that warrant having a thread and it's own forum section.

Exciting! I became totally obsessed with this game after the Waypoint article. My name in game is Elia Laike and my ID is 100387254. I had to leave the other association I was in (it was a random one I joined), but as soon as my 12 hrs is up I'll be joining :).

Lord knows the rabbit holes that Giant Bomb eventually takes me down. This is certainly a new one. Already got accepted into the association (thank you much), but thought I'd post my ID for anyone partaking of this glorious...thing.

I'm Lady Gnor in game, ID is 102743989. I'll do my damnedest to get all the stockings and hosiery that I can amass! And to stay active!

Hey! I'm currently in a group but it's lethargic. If you still have room for one more, I'm always active daily and would love to have some friends to vote for.

Hey, guys. Love Nikki deleted *all* my content because I didn't link to Facebook when I started the new update. Now it made me run through the tutorial just to get to my profile so I could log out. Didn't do any good. I can't log in with my old account.

I am ridiculously devastated to have lost all my December content -- all my content, since I only started playing in December. I don't use Facebook. I have mail into the devs, but I'm really afraid my content is gone, and I can't shake the sadness.

Yeah, I know, get a life.
