Analysis

The RibeyrollesAR 1918 Automatic Carbine was an attempt to manufacture an automatic rifle for the French military during the First World War. However, it's pretty easy to see that the rifle was produced in the closing year of the war with the Armistice of 11 November 1918. France was on the winning side of the war, but at a terrible cost. Ribey's appearance may be a reference to the pyrrhic victory France won, but appearances can be deceiving.

The most notable thing of RibeyrollesAR is her tiles: unlike most AR which buffs SMGs, she buffs other ARs, similar to M4A1AR. Her buff tiles give a nifty 20% FP to AR which makes her a pretty good support AR, though it is technically weaker than M4A1AR's tile buff.

Her supportive skill “Crimson Echoes” differentiates RibeyrollesAR from M4A1AR: RibeyrollesAR will give any dolls (not just AR) who stand on her tiles an extra 25% FP, RoF and ACC, which is a triple buff that is far better than any standard buffing HG (eg. GrizzlyHG’s 25% FP buff).

While the uptime is poor, pairing RibeyrollesAR with other short uptime bursty dolls like Gr G11AR can boost the team’s DPS significantly. Note that since Ribey cannot buff herself with her skill and her base RoF is poor to start with, her own DPS will always be subpar.

On paper, Ribey’s utility should directly translate to her usage. In practice, this is not the case. The poor uptime and tile limitation makes RibeyrollesAR subpar for bossing, and Ribey's high resupply cost dissuades minmaxing players from fielding her in farming content. Most ARs introduced later on in the game also simply don't need to rely on Ribey’s skill to dish out a lot of damage, meaning it is usually better simply to run 3 DPS AR in a team or an HG rather than adding a support AR like RibeyrollesAR in there.

While RibeyrollesAR' skill gives great utility to her AR peers, her subpar DPS means that she will struggle to keep up with future content, barring the unlikely event of her receiving a Neural Upgrade. Optional.
