Okay I'll do this like I always do, a cluster of info in one topic. Bear/bare with me? Puns aside and no one here will get the bear with me thing. Anywho, tutorial for people new to S4 or people coming back to S.T. page to see me fail at tutorials. Lets begin!

S4 had a server update today and now instead of a lot of servers we have 4-5. We have the beginner's server 0-19 ranks allowed and then 3 servers for 20 and above ranks and a clan server for any ranks so long as their in the clan. Since this is for beginners, pick the language server that applies to you or in this case English 1. (En1 is the most popular server in S4 atm, everyone goes there, even people who don't speak English so have some patience.) En2 is usually dead or being used to farm experience by bots or bored people, NA server is usually dead, German is pretty populated and is the one usually used if En1 is down, the rest are usually pretty dead.

Once inside your language servers, En1 for us, click on the beginner's server 0-19 rank.

You should see something like this

(yes Rage Imma be spamming posts)

Moving on, now that you're in the server, what now?
Well you'll wanna check your inventory for free stuff, pixels love free stuff.

Up top you'll see icons, you're gonna wanna click on the one that looks like a file cabinet..ish whatever that thing is


So depending if you chose a girl or boy character right off the bat, you'll see free clothes/weapons/skills for him/her in the inventory. You'll also find 2x 20k Pen and 1x 10k Pen. Use both and you'll get an extra free 50,000 Pen to spend(Woo because Pen = ingame currency in the Netsphere.) Feel free to try out the free weapons and skills, you might like the ones they give you to start with. Also the starfish is a free 30 day pet you can equip for extra SP(stamina points/special points I dont' remember what they are called, its been a while :c ). SP is used to active skills and to dash/wall jump/dodge. No worries you'll learn all of that stuff in game.

One other thing about the inventory is that since you chose a male/female character at the start, you can only use the clothes for that gender til you unlock your second character. You will be able to unlock a second and third character at rank 5 and 15 if I remember right. They won't tell you this unless they added in a pro tip about it so remember you can unlock another character at 5 and 15.

You can unlock them at the 5th/15th ranks here

Press the gear/cog what have you and unlock that second/third character. You'll be prompted on screen to choose their gender again but this character and the third will not get another set of free clothes. You can choose to have all female characters/male characters or a combination. Personally I have two female characters and one male characters. Switching between genders you'll see the inventory will show gender specific clothes for them based on which is active.

Moving right along, lets get to training. No really there's a button called training but their tutorials aren't the best to get used to the game, practice rooms help immensely. But! They have a use, the tutorials in the Training panel give free shyt, good free shyt.



So open up the Training panel, and lets see what we got.


Starting from left to right, there's the tutorial you completed when you first logged into S4 after creating your character.
Weapon; Try out different weapons in free to get the hang of them or go into Intense to complete the tutorial with them and get a free temp version of that weapon to use in matches. If you complete all the weapons in intense mode, you will get a bunch of capsules as a reward. Every capsule for weapons will either drop a perm of the weapon, a temp version that can last a few days, some coupons and some pen.
Skill; Same as the Weapon tab, you try out different skills in Free or Intense mode. Clearing all Intense skills will give you a similar reward to the Weapon one, capsules that could drop a perm unique version of the skills.
Combat; This one is great for beginning S4, completing Touchdown and Deathmatch will reward you with a free temp premium outfit and an accessory.

Touchdown will get you the temp outfit, deathmatch will get you the accessory. Both last 30 days. Sadly they didn't add the Chaser tutorial so you can't try that one out yet.

Also added for the combat simulators, just a few tips. Deathmatch will show you the map Neden 1 so you can learn the layout, Touchdown will show you the map Station 2 so you can learn the layout. Both are pretty popular maps although Station 2 is more popular than Neden 1. The bots you are playing with have aim assistance/aim bot, don't get too close to the enemy ones they don't miss. Take a shield Skill though and you can shoot them while it's activated and they can't' shoot through the skill, keep an eye on that SP though it drains pretty quick. These tutorials show you the basic objective of both modes.

Edit: The tab next to Training, Arcade modes

Conquest is a simulator against bots that look like chess pieces of all things, it's actually not that bad and pretty fun with a party of 2-4 players even though you can beat it alone if you have certain weapons/skills and are comfortable with the game mechanics.

Training is similar to the Weapon training tab, you test out weapons against static enemies to see damage and get used to aiming. For completing the missions you get 100 experience and 500 pen. After completing them once though they don't give anymore exp/pen if I remember right. Not bad for getting a little extra pen though and getting used to weapons.

Scenario is the actual Arcade mode, it's for 1-4 players, you are against bots while going through a 'story' type mode explaining a little about the netsphere. It's not a bad mode, enjoyable with a team of players even though can be done alone, might be more frustrating alone though.
