      • SSR is a rarity in between SR and UR, and there will be new premium recruitment cards added
      • Also, there will be campaigns for increase SR appearance rates
    • The way skill level ups work is being changed
      • When a card with the same skill name or a support member is used, it will fill a gauge instead, and the skill will be leveled up when it's full
      • Support members can also be used regardless of rarity, however the attribute must still be the same
      • This gauge is not affected by super or ultra success
    • New center skills for URs
      • On top of their current center skills, URs will also give a bonus to certain groups, years, or subunits
    • New partner functionality
      • A partner can be set to be the card that appears on your home screen, which will be separate from your units
      • Other players will still see the center of your main unit as their assist
    • New Favorite Point functionality
      • When you use the card you have set as a partner in a live, that card will gain Favorite Points
      • The cards with the highest Favorite Points will show up on your profile, much like how the cards with the highest total kizuna do now
    • There will be a new feature to switch between the unawakened and awakened design of a card
    • The card member list is being revamped to make it easier to use
      • The starting number of club spaces is being increased from 90 to 120
      • The assignments for increasing club spaces will be removed and the rewards will be changed to 1 Loveca Stone
        • If you have already cleared these assignments, then you will not gain any extra space and will be reimbursed Loveca Stones
      • The maximum number of club spaces is being increased to 1000, and each Loveca Stone spent will increase by 4 spaces instead of 3
        • If you have already spent Loveca Stones to increase club spaces, then the extra space will be added retroactively
      • Support cards will be moved to a separate page and not count toward your club space
        • If you have support cards for leveling skills with a skill level greater than 1, their skill levels will be set back to 1 and you will be given extra copies of that card based on the original skill level
      • There will also be new filtering functions added
    • Expert difficulty will be added to the regular songs
    • A new Master difficulty is being added, and 4 songs will be available to play per month from the special songs section

      • Aqours songs will also be available to be unlocked through assignments that are not related to rank
    • A random song selection feature is being added
      • Once you have unlocked a certain number of regular songs, you will be able to use this to select a song to play at random
      • The attribute that appears in random select will change daily, and both µ's and Aqours modes will have their own pool of Easy, Normal, Hard, and Expert songs
      • When playing a song selected through random select, you will also increase the Reward Box gauge faster

June 22, 2016 - SIF from Here on (Part 1)

  • Spread over 2 weeks, here's an overview of what's coming in the planned update on July 5
    • Special lessons (awakening cards)
      • Up until now, special lessons have required a duplicate of the card. However, it will now be possible to perform them using seals.
      • In addition to awakening cards, special lessons will also increase the number of School Idol Skill slots (see next section)
      • Because of this change, awakened cards will be changed to only give 1 seal when they are used as fodder or sold
      • The number of seals required to awaken a card depends on the rarity of the seals used and the rarity of the card
    • School Idol Skills - Give your favorite cards a boost in power!
      • These are special skills that can strengthen the cards in your club, and can be obtained from the Reward Box (see next section)
      • There are various kinds of skills, and depending on their strength, use up 1-4 slots, with stronger skills using up more slots
      • Using a duplicate of a card to awaken them will increase a card's School Idol Skill slots by 1
      • Special lessons can be performed on already awakened cards in order to increase their School Idol Skill slots. Using a duplicate will increase by 2; using seals will increase by 1.
      • The following table shows the initial and maximum number of School Idol Skill slots that a card of a certain rarity can have:
Rarity Initial Maximum
N 0 1
R 1 2
SR 2 4
SSR 3 6
UR 4 8
Promo R 1 1
Promo SR 1 1
Promo UR 2 2
  • Reward Box - Get rewards from high scores!
    • A new Reward Box will be added to the rewards from clearing a live
    • As you clear lives, you will fill a gauge. Once it's filled, it'll be opened, allowing you obtain various items, such as School Idol Skills.
    • There are several ranks of Reward Boxes. The higher the rank, the easier it will be to get better items, and the higher the unlock condition.

      • In the event that you fail a song in a round, your event points, G, and EXP will be halved (unless you fail on the first song, in which case you get nothing). You will also lose all Gold/Silver/Bronze rewards that you have collected.
      • Beginning with the second round, there will be a "Stop and Receive Rewards" option, if you feel that the song is too difficult for you. The festival will end and you will receive all of the rewards that you have collected.
      • You are allowed to pause between songs. The current status will be saved.
      • Each round has its own pool of 8 songs, from which a song is selected. It is possible for the same song to appear twice in the same course.
      • The songs for each course will have the following difficulties:
        • Beginner: 1★ - 6★ (Easy and Normal)
        • Normal: 4★ - 8★ (Normal and Hard)
        • Hard: 6★ - 10★ (Hard and Expert)
        • Extreme: 9★ - 11★ (Regular, Random and Daily Expert)
    2. After the round song is displayed, there is a chance that bonuses will activate. Up to 3 bonuses can be active at a time, and certain combinations will trigger extra special bonuses.
      • The effect of the bonuses is limited to that round only.
      • The further you progress in a course, the more likely that a bonus will activate.
    3. Select the unit that you wish to use for the song. The unit may be changed for each round.
    4. You can use G to "arrange" the songs, much like in Medley Festival, to provide special effects. Note that the arrangements will reset after each round.
    5. Once you clear the round, you will collect event points, G, EXP, and Gold/Silver/Bronze rewards. The further you get in a course, the more event points, G, and EXP you will collect, and the higher the likelihood of Gold and Silver rewards appearing.
      • You will only receive everything that you have collected after you clear the fifth round or once you select the "Stop and Receive Rewards" option.
  • Rewards include SR Nishikino Maki (Easter), R Miyama Satoko - see event page for details
