Well, Gongbang, or workshop, battle is held by Gongbang in the Middle Area, so I'd say it's safe to presume that they are not related to the actual testing of the floor.
I always thought that normally on floor 30 there are ordinary tests like on any other floor, but the only exception is that each 5th year there is one big and difficult test/tournament for which you get greatly rewarded by getting something really valuable(like good items, ...), if you manage to pass, win or whatever is the goal of the test...
Besides from where does your info that Gongbang battle or The Creation Room or The Blacksmiths or The Factory or The Workshop also referred by me as a tournament(the Workshop Battle) is not the same as a test from floor 30 ???
For me, given that it's been discussed how there's an E-rank Regular tournament that Androssi's in the finals of, there's an individual competition and a team competition. I think that the top finishers in the individual side move on, but even on the teams that win in the team competition, not everyone necessarily moves on. There might be a whole rearrangement of all teams after the Gongbang.
Goddamit, I can't read those posts without laughing. Nice job with the name of the tournament SIU.
People waiting for new Gangbang for years... There might be a whole rearrangement of teams after the Gangbang...
Anyway, from the way it was introduced, it just seems that it's kind of a bonus tournament. What is the interest from the organizers, I don't know. Maybe it's just self promotion. I really think there are regular tests held there regularly.
I saw this on Batoto once and I'd asked people here their opinions, but we never really got anywhere.
Think about it, who would you make as a team?
I think that teams make it through, but not all of their members are capable of going on. We do know that some people just can't make it to higher levels of the Tower. In fact, if Rachel were going to stay with Koon's team, unless she has the same magical shinsoo resistance that Baam does (and I don't think she does), eventually, she wouldn't be able to make it up the floors as she hasn't been training and her shinsoo resistance wouldn't be improving.
Razh: Just to make sure, was you using "Gangbang" instead of "Gongbang" a joke?
Even if the battle for items is separate from 30F test, getting badass items probably critically boosts your chances of passing the test.
Gongbang is also independent from Zahardian (I just made up a word) rule, so...
Well, that's just what I think, haha.
Review for 124 &125 is out (Here is a link for any who are interested)
The poll is on how interested you are in the members of Koon's team, excluding Rachel and Koon (since they are part of the old group)
do we have a date for the release of a new chapter?
@Jammin: Thanks for the nice review
