Both interface and overall gameplay difficulty of Dual Randomness is similar to the previous events Polarized Light. The event offers normal and hard difficulty, with the way the event is laid out, players can obtain the hard mode reward by simply defeating the first level of the hard mode story node. Normal difficulty can be completed with lv80+ 4x expansion T-Doll echelons with decent graded equipment and fairy/HOC back ups, while hard difficulty test the players' echelon level, role diversity, HOC levels and specifically for chapter 2, Coalition echelon levels.
New elements and mechanics
Repeatable story nodes to progress story
All event chapters are on display on a single side scrolling menu, a counter can be seen on the main combat node of each chapter, informing the player the progression of the chapter. Unfortunately both the normal and hard version of the combat node shares the same counter, the counter will register the highest progression only, meaning that switching difficulty nodes will not move the overall chat progress. Chapter 1 combat node has five stages, chapter 2 has nine, chapter 3 also has nine.
Chapter 1 will be notated as E1, normal combat nodes of chapter 1 will be named as E1-1 to E1-5, hard combat nodes of chapter 1 as E1-1EX to E1-5EX farming node of chapter 1 will be simply named E1.1, and so on.
Repeatable farming nodes of each chapter
When the counter for the main combat node reaches max value, the player can then progress to the next chapter, however a 'farming' node is also unlocked. The farming nodes will be marked as E?.1, the farming node will contain a selection of limited edition dolls available for looting, as well as the chapter specific newly introduced dolls of this event.
Branched out story only nodes
As players progress through the main combat node, side story nodes will start appear underneath, those are story only, but completion will yield some item rewards.
A new mechanic introduced in this event, battlefields can be expanded into different sectors, floors, and even cyber space. Echelons deployed/moved into expanded section of the battlefield will share the same movement point as the overall combat session.
Echelons can be moved into new sections of the battlefield via a few means, for details see album attached.
Event Currency: Crates
Players will be rewarded with crates upon completing event battle maps.
- The amount varies between nodes, normal difficulty nodes will have lower crate reward while hard difficulty nodes will have more. Early chapter nodes will also typically yield less than later chapters.
- Crate reward eligibility is reset everyday at 00:00 am Beijing time.
- Crates can be opened for random rewards, interface is located on the main menu -> events.

The rebuilding of G&K has began, after the brutal battle during Polarized Light and Chapter 13, the Private Military Contractor has exhausted almost the entirety of their available combat forces and manpower. But things are looking up, having finally returned home to the G&K base, all the human staffs and survived combat hardened dolls have returned, even the Boss Mr Kyruger himself. A brief celebration took place, but soon enough, new work has arrived. Informed of agent Angie's movements into the city of Bremen, a territory under East Germany jurisdiction, Mr Welkin of I.O.P., G&K's new sponsor has personally requested the base Commander to assist agent Angie and DEFY in anyway they can.
