Rate the Unit, Day 30: Geese
Posted 02 April 2012 - 05:59 AM
- Ratings are assumed to be on Hard Mode.
- Votes need some explanation regarding their gameplay performance to be counted. If somebody else said what you want to already, quote them explicitly.
+/- ≤1 point extra regarding personality/appearance is encouraged, but no more. If you exercise your bias privileges, please do so explicitly.
- Numerical votes out of 10, or something proportional to it. Make it easy to calculate for my sake.
- Every ranking phase ends whenever I get out of bed, between 0700 and 0800 EST. Do the math for your timezone, Brits.
- I will insist you do not use the "Not X" reason on any character, where X is another unit. If you do, your vote will be thrown out.
- Characters should be rated for their performance on all possible routes (A/B / Sacae/Ilia) but should not be penalized for routes they physically cannot exist on (z.B Juno in Sacae).
- "Recruits X" or "takes you to X chapter" arguments are explicitly banned. C'mon, people, this shouldn't need to be a rule. That's not gameplay performance.
- I withhold the privilege to tell you your rating is bogus and demand you revise it if it breaks any of the above. I will not throw out votes anonymously, you will be informed and given a chance to revise.
can't wait to see this one

Unfortunately it's Hero Crest competition for Geese as well, so he's suffering for that. I give Pirate Merchant (who has one of the funniest supports in the game) an 6/10 WITH a Bias Point
TOMAHAWK DOUBLE BOOOOOOOMERANG!!!
EDIT: Dropped the score a bit after thinking on it

Oh wait, 11 con and hero crest.
Ima gonna say

Comes with a brave axe (only in Route A, comes with a steel axe and a hand axe in route B) and is at a decent level with okay bases and good growths. Definitely has more of a use than Lot and Ward, but it isn't saying much. It sucks that the hero crest competition is huge, and Geese can compete for it, but it's difficult raising him up.
EDIT: Revising my vote after a few great points, it is not 4.5/10 instead of 6.5/10.

In ways he is a less radical Gonzales; he has good STR and SPD, mediocre SKL, okay DEF (at least at base), and still-horrible RES. He has Crest competition, and honestly if you're going to save that Brave Axe he tends to have trouble doubling at first, with his base of 9 and low 11 CON, but he and his growths are solid enough overall. However, in HM, he simply cannot compete with enemies.
3.5/10 + 1 bias = 4.5/10

...Yeah Geese isn't all that great. He wishes he could fly, but instead he became a Pirate. Geese looks like he could be awesome for a Pirate, but he's too goddamn slow. 9 base Spd and 40% growth is pretty bad, and the Speedwings have better allocations like Allen. He's cool... but he just sucks. Please don't use him in HM.
3/10, and we'll say that includes the bias point.

But that goes all downhill in HM. His bases just simply doesn't work out there, and his growths, while they aren't bad or anything, doesn't work out with his bases in an HM setting. It doesn't get him anywhere he needs to be in a reasonable timeframe, and on top of that, he's /still/ stuck to axes and we've went over that axelock sucks in FE6.
3/10 with a .5 bias for having sexy hair.

On HM, though? He's extremely mediocre. Gonzo kicks him around on stats thanks to HM bonuses (his SKL's a little better, but just a little) and there's just not as much time or inclination to bother raising him. You could do far, far worse for a unit, but Geese just isn't turning any heads with those bases.

4.5/10 - A cool guy, but outclassed by HM Gonzales, as well as Dieck and Rutger. He's probably better than Lott and Ward, but that's not saying much.

Geese is just, mediocre. That and he has Oujay's base 9 spd. So what if he carries the brave axe? Others(lolBartre and Marcus/Zealot) can use that brave axe better. Or save that axe for later use. I guess he's still ok to use, but underwhelming.
5/10, with a negtive bias, its 4.5/10
Posted 02 April 2012 - 11:32 AM
Bases are mediocre, and his durability is just bad. gets outclassed by Gonzales.

+1 axe rank
I hope that five extra hit is worth it.
10 strength is too weak, 9 AS is too slow, and 11 con is too low for Geese to use the Brave Axe without getting doubled by everything. People see a bunch of 9s and immediately think "balanced" without taking into account what 9 speed in chapter 10 even means for him. He's less captain average and more captain far below average. He cannot survive hard mode without constant babying until promotion, and even then he's not good.
