Heroes: Short-haired Ladies vs. Long-haired Gents Voting Gauntlet

A new Fire Emblem Heroes Voting Gauntlet will be running between 6th November to 12th November 2017. This time, heroes will be battling to see who has the most stylish haircut!

In the first block, we have the lovely short-haired ladies, featuring Amelia, Katarina, Shanna and Hinoka. Meanwhile the other block is home to the long-haired gents, including Takumi, Karel, Soren and Ryoma.

To aid summoners, two Summoning Focus featuring the 4 characters from both blocks will be available starting today and ending soon after the Voting Gauntlet ends, during the daily rollover on 12th November 2017.

The brackets for this gauntlet have also been revealed, in case you need help deciding who to support. Will it be one of the headstrong ladies or one of the dashing gentlemen? Or perhaps you’re planning to hop around to maximise your feathers?

    This one seems kinda in the air, the Fates characters in this one are not as popular as Camilla so I doubt they’ll have the backing she did. Though the first rounds do seem a bit obvious: Ameila, Hinoka, Takumi, and Ryoma will likely win out, but then the next rounds will probably be close though. But my final round guess will be Amelia v Ryoma.

    • Fikko3107

      I know, right? This is one of the first gauntlets IIRC where I honestly can’t guess who might take everything. Your prediction sounds pretty spot on, though. However, Voting Gauntlets have been more and more of a wild card lately with how the bonus time works. Without it, there would have been no way that Camilla beat Lyn in the CYL banner. So really it’s all up in the air for this one.

      • mrkisukes

        Yeah, those score multiplier for the losing team can certainly jank things, so it’s very likely that we’ll get an upset, I’m gonna try and side myself with the loosing teams so I can get more feathers from it all. Each time I’m on a winning team, sure I get the 500 for winning, but I’ll only get 900 for my score, while on the loosing team I’ll typically get 1700, it’s all dependent on optimizing that multiplier.

    • Eh, I think Ryoma is the most likely to be an upset on here – if anyone on this Gauntlet can take down a Fates Royal Round 1, it’s definitely Soren. There are also a lot of us who find Takumi obnoxious, so it’s possible enough of those guys will go Karel and take him out. I’m hoping for a full Karel upset, myself. Also huzzah for Hinoka finally being available again, I guess, though I’m still waiting for Cordelia.

  • Sisyphe

    Wow, Katarina vs. Soren… that’s going to be a struggle. Plus another opportunity to pull Amelia (and Hinoka). Cool

  • Laggalot101

    WELP, so much for saving Orbs. I’m going all-in on the girls banner, because I’d be really happy to get eith er Katarina or Amelia. My Hector and Sheena are both -Atk (Sheena is only 4-star, too), so I could definitely do with a better green armour, and Katarina would be my fastest Red Mage, a speedy red mage still being something I lack (and I really don’t want to use Tharja). Been stuck with Sanaki for the longest time, and while Arvis is faster… he’s still not very fast. So yeah, wish me luck.

    • Sisyphe

      For what it’s worth, I actually run a -ATK/+RES Sheena with Fortress Defense and Ignis on my Armor Team and I actually don’t have any complaints. She doesn’t die to things she isn’t supposed to and Ignis punches a hole in just about everything. Amelia is probably better, but with my limited orbs, I don’t feel particularly inclined to try to replace Sheena with her. Katerina is pretty good with Blade. Doesn’t always kill Brave Ike, but if you have a Peforming Azura, she’ll pack a punch. Only 34 neutral speed though

      • Laggalot101

        That 34 Speed is exactly why I would personally not run Blade on her and keep the Owl Tome that she starts with. I know it’s somewhat situational, but the Owl Tome does provide valuable points in Speed, allowing the unit to reach Speed tiers they otherwise couldn’t, and I think that’s particularly valuable for a unit who at base has just above average speed, like Katarina. I think Blade Tomes are best suited for units that can benefit from a movement-type buff or units that are just really fast to begin with like the +Spd Nino I have.

        • Sisyphe

          Yeah that’s fair. I think it depends on what you’re trying to accomplish (and also probably what level you’re playing at). I mostly bring her in for Arena Assault mostly to kill Brave Ike or tank green mages, and I find given the respective speed tiers of that group means that I can go for damage instead. Besides, 41-42 speed with buffs and Swift Sparrow works for me, as she can also kill some bulky reds. Plus, I just really like her, but the speed does throw some people off

  • Alexander Bodine

    Rooting for Amelia, Soren, or Karel.

  • Nick

    Stylish hair cut? Def not Ryouma, Goku wore it better in super saiyan 3. Ryouma cant even make his hair golden
    and hello colorless hell my old friend, I’ve come to try and get Takumi again….

  • CombatMagi

    Soren first Ameilia second personally also first 5 star from a free summon so that was kinda nice would have preferred a Takumi (5 colorless orbs what the hell?) but another Amelia is welcome

  • Morgan Rodgers

    Now I don’t know whether to keep trying for Ayra, or try to finally get a Takumi…

  • Laggalot101

    Oh yeah, by the way, Soren is absolutely getting my support. Granted, I doubt he’ll survive his battle with Ryoma, but so be it. I like Soren a lot as a character and hey, it’s feather-efficient.

    • CombatMagi

      I’ll be backing Soren also, he is easily in my top 5 favorite Fire Emblem characters. He does have a miniscule chance of winning that pretty much solely relies on other people being more popular than Ryoma however even if Soren does win round one, I don’t see a foreseeable way for him to beat Takumi. Note this is realistically looking at it, I’m not even gonna try to guess how the bonuses are going to affect the score, because those cause some janky wins.

  • I finally have my lobster! I’m sooo happy!

  • Eine’s got my support.
