    Personally I took "BFO" to mean Battlefield Overture and "MA" to mean Magic Attack like real players do... But obviously some people on these forums think I am stupid, so whatever?

    I see people saying BfO or just full name, but i definitely never saw people say %MA, because it's just MA or again, full name.

    I think it'd be awesome if they also implemented the %Martial Arts tournament into BoyFriend Online.

    dislikes people who use abbreviations but uses BFO Pepega Clap, he's talking about magic attack which makes sense cause bfo effects attack, so what else could M stand for other than magic, music attack? lol though i'm pretty sure bfo effects magic already, it's not as effective as vivace if you're primarily using magic since charge speed is much better, but bfo does increase magic damage although not as much as it increases max/min attack damage.

    Battlefield overture don't need to buff magic as well, but Vivace sure.

    Vivace was not used much, heck I had not seen it used like at all. As soon as New better Spirit weapons come to Mabi NA most of us would already have some moderately high erg level stave for that yummy casting speed for Int magic. Which leave Vivace scarcely forgotten as I already had forgot its a skill till someone in this Post brought it up.

    So I believe it should be Vivace to get that percent damage bonus instead of Battlefield Overture.

    Although I do like to see Boyfriend Online and see the reaction of a friend of mine > 3>

    Vivace is for speed
    BFO is for damage

    BFO sort of boosts magic but the effect is super minimal since it only affects bolts/int magic.

    Adv magic has no scaling from damage enchants/BFO
    Adv magic has little/no benefit from Vivace

    Raids primarily use BFO because physical damage dominates the game since vivace does little to nothing for physical damage skillsets.

    Example Calculation
    Damage with Weapon: 400-600
    Magic Attack: 600
    Skill to Use: Firebolt
    SpellCoeff: 0.35-0.5
    DamageCoeff: 0.2-0.4
    Overture: 40%
    EnchantedDamg(From Overture): 160-240
    Firebolt Base Damage(Dan3): 66-126
    Damage from MA: 210-300
    Damage from EnchDamg: 32-96

    Base+MA = 276-426
    Base+MA+Ench = 308-522

    Damage Difference with BFO
    Min Diff = 308/276 = 1.116
    Max Diff = 522/426 = 1.225

    But then again Firebolt is the best damage scaling magic so every other magic will have worse scaling than this and its also dependent on your damage for wacking with your staff/wand which is STR

    Magic and alchemy should just use the same system that everything else does.

    What Sherri said. Also for the fact we say abbreviations when your around folks who were familiar about it.

    Next time just say the whole name so "ALL" can understand it even the very moderators who read our nonsense xD

    Your not ingame or anything so might as well speak "clearly" with the full name instead of using abbreviations, ya know? being "formal" when typing in the forums.

    Not everyone uses abbreviations, but no one uses the Queen's English.
