Heroes: Battle of the Mages Voting Gauntlet is Live!

It’s time for another Voting Gauntlet in Fire Emblem Heroes! The Battle of the Mages Voting Gauntlet has now begun. It was first announced in the FEH Channel Livestream.

Round 1 Matchups are as follows:

Linde vs. Tharja
Sanaki vs. Julia
Leo vs. Henry
Robin vs. Merric

This first round ends on 14 May at 7:59am UTC. Victors will then proceed to the second round, and the next match will begin. The full ladder is below.

As a reminder, we have some new rules for this Voting Gauntlet! If your chosen army is at a disadvantage, all votes accumulated for that army during that hour will be multiplied by 3. Hopefully this will keep each round a bit more fair and interesting.

The Female Mages and Male Mages summon focus banners will remain available for the duration of the gauntlet. If you’d like a powerful magic user to add to your team, or if you haven’t had a chance to summon your favourite mage of the gauntlet yet, now is the perfect time.

As usual, you can also complete a series of Quests to win additional Battle Flags to support your team. The full list of quests can be found below.

The banners and quests will disappear at the end of the gauntlet on 18 May at 7:59am UTC. Fight for your chosen champion and do your best!

    Very curious to see if the new comeback mechanic is going to change anything. I think everyone knows that Tharja’s the favourite here. If there’s any chance of her losing, it’ll be to Robin, and nobody else. So my first-round predictions:

    Tharja > Linde. I can see Linde have made it to the second round if she wasn’t matched up with Tharja immediately, but she is.
    Sanaki Henry. I don’t feel like people care about Henry anymore.
    Robin > Merric. Robin is just popular. The only character here who can maybe compete with Tharja, especially with the comeback mechanic. And poor Merric remains in the dust of Khadein…

    Myself, though? I want feathers, and considering who I do and don’t have, my best pick looks like it’ll be Merric. I have him and his lack of popularity should make it fairly easy to achieve a good rank without investing too many feathers.

      I wouldn’t count Merric out just yet, right now Robin vs Merric is 1,923,503,868 to 1,757355,564. Pretty close compared to my past experiences with voting gauntlets.

      And optimistically thinking Linde might beat Tharja from her status as a top tier hero. Though I’m probably just saying that because i hate Tharja. I’m an Awakening fan, but i really hate Tharja,

      • Laggalot101

        Yeah, I know, I’m supporting Merric myself, as I figured I’d be doing before, and I’m quite surprised to see Merric hold up so well. Turns out that 3x multiplier is quite impactful. Depending on what players do in the final few hours, and if the comeback mechanic kicks in at the right moment, there’s a slight chance Merric might overtake Robin at the last moment. And it sounds like Tharja vs. Linde is much the same. Additionally, I understand that the other two battles, Leo vs. Henry, and Sanaki vs. Julia are pretty even as well. Been a few hours since I read that, so things might’ve changed, but I don’t know. It’s cool to see we’re not just getting landslide victories everywhere this time.

  • Paulo Cesar

    Sorry for any Robin in advance but you guys are the only ones capable to win against Tharja I kinda know this, but still want to see how strong your drive is.
    So in second the phase of Guantlet against Leo please not hold back.

    The only way to get maximum points is not sleeping for almost entire week.

    These voting things are always depressing…
