Alm, Micaiah, Eliwood, and Camilla rise above the rest! These four will be next in line to receive Brave variants (or “special Choose Your Legends outfits,” as they are called in official notifications). So, start saving those Orbs soon if you intend to fully merge at least one of them!

Female Heroes:
1st: Micaiah (Radiant Dawn) – 54,343 votes
2nd: Camilla (Fates) – 46,741 votes

Male Heroes:
1st: Alm (Gaiden / Echoes: Shadows of Valentia) – 62,216 votes
2nd: Eliwood (Blazing Blade) – 44,687 votes

If you wish to see how your favourite characters placed, you can visit the official CYL3 results page here: https://vote3.campaigns.fire-emblem-heroes.com/results

Even hours before the results were officially revealed (at 3:00AM UTC), the results were kind-of leaked when someone decided to check the CSS for the official CYL3 page. By searching for “.results-stand”, you can find URL ends within the code which will link to character images when placed at the end of the main CYL3 homepage link.

That’s not today’s only news! We also have a new banner to summon from. The “Heroes with Link Skills” banner is here:

These three heroes – Laevatein: Searing Steel, Sumia: Maid of Flowers, and Nina: Eye Spy – each have their own variant of a Link skill as part of their kit. Summon if you want the characters of the skills for inheritance.

Or, start saving those Orbs for a fully merged Brave Eliwood.

I guess I should put something here.
  • Splatoo Blemier

    Expected characters except Eliwood overtook Marth I guess all FE7 Lords get something I guess. It’ll interesting next year once the new game this year comes out.

  • Sisyphe

    I would’ve preferred a focus on characters we didn’t already have — I think it’s reasonably likely we’ll get some sort of Alm and/or Eliwood alt that will bump up against the CYL release, like Hector did last year — but I’m really excited for Brave Micaiah. Ultimately, I’m happy with the vote

  • Kusanagi

    As far I’m concern, Camilla’s fanboys deserve this win after all the passive aggressive crap they had to go through

    • It’s not like it’s entirely unjustified. Fates writing as a whole is shite, but characters like Camilla and Tharja are the epitome of tropey video game writing that strays too far away from the typical FE formula. Of course people would be annoyed when characters with actual depth are shafted in favour of ones that are designed from the outside in.

      • An Tran

        Careful there, saying anything negative about them booby females is frowned upon in these parts.

      • Kusanagi

        You don’t think I don’t know that? I was on that side for awhile until I got tire of it. Wanna move on for a better things instead of being piss off 24/7.

        This community was divided long before Awakening ever came to existence. It’s just stupid now because there’s apparently a segregation Fire Emblem fan & now being a Camilla fan. There’s so only so much you can be piss off at a character

  • James Richardson III

    Got Laevatein on a free summon!

  • Gregory Prytyka Jr.

    At last, after a year long’s wait, the travesty of last year has been avenged.

  • Shenai

    Really, Camilla? *sigh*
    But yay for Eliwood.

    • Splatoo Blemier

      And you’re surprised how ?! She obviously has fans(myself included) all 4 will get excluded next get over it…

      • Sisyphe

        Somebody’s sensitive…some people don’t like the same things you do, and that’s okay. Ruminate on that and consider learning some punctuation while you’re at it.

        • WaterGoddess Azura

          Nothing wrong with what they said how was it “insensitive”? Its fact they don’t give ASF about haters also the hating d!ck award goes to….

          • Sisyphe

            *Shrug* whatever gets you through the day, my dude. There are a lot of Camilla fans out there. I’m not so sure they appreciate your representation of them.

          • Stahling_For_Time

            You’re being hypocritical. Starting out by saying “Really, Camilla? *sigh*” and then defending yourself with “Some people don’t like the same things you do, and that’s okay” shows that you lack self awareness. I can easily take that second quote and use it against your original post. You don’t like Camilla but other people do, and that’s okay. Also, criticizing someone’s punctuation proves you don’t really have an argument to make and are just being petty at this point. We all obviously love Fire Emblem, so there’s no need for any of this.

            To end on a more positive note, I too am happy for Eliwood. It’ll be interesting to see what they do with him.

          • Sisyphe

            Alas, I’m not the original poster and you probably shouldn’t denigrate them because of me. In fact, I’ve not said anything negative about Camilla. Furthermore, we’re not making arguments and comments about punctuation don’t “prove” anything. I personally don’t think punctuation is petty — it’s so easy and helps with clarity — but it is admittedly not much related to the topic at hand. All I know is that seemingly whenever anyone says anything that isn’t unmitigated praise for Camilla, they’re more often than not met with some punctuation-less gibberish or bastardization of the English language in response.

            And to really belabor my first point, on the topic of Eliwood, I’m pretty indifferent. I like the character, but I’m not altogether fond of cavalry and we’ve already had Brave Roy in his image.

          • Stahling_For_Time

            Ah it appears as though I made an oopsie! I’ll be honest, I only saw the first letter of the username was “S” and they appeared to be the same length. You’d think I would know not to browse comments after being awake for an extended period of time. I apologize. Having words put into your mouth is always crappy.

            For your second point, you didn’t seem to have any problem understanding what they said. So yes, to me your comment about punctuation still comes across as a petty jab to said person. And I would say I certainly notice that there are far more people flying off the deep end every time Camilla gets any recognition at all compared to how many actually defend her.

            Either way I’ll leave you to the rest your day. Apologies again!! 😀

          • Sisyphe

            Hey, don’t worry about it. I’d never begrudge someone making a mistake, particularly if they admit it.

            My experience is typically that anytime someone expresses anything negative about Camilla, they’re met with an unintelligible torrent the likes of which we see above, usually covered in upvotes, again, as we see above. I don’t have a problem with someone saying they dislike a character, and I typically don’t see ad hominem attacks from that side. But maybe that’s not your experience. I get that this is a very small microcosm of a larger community issue that I’m not a part of, but it still seems like there’s a lot of sensitivity to me. No offense intended against you though, and it’s easy enough to back off on the grammar/punctuation digs, pet peeve of mine though it is.

          • Shenai

            How was I being a hater? There’s a middle ground between loving a chara and hating a chara.

      • Shenai

        I’m not surprised. But I’m also not obligated to be happy or excited about it.
        There are a lot of other characters that also have fans.
        We’ve already got 6 Camillas, she’s not a character I particularly like, why would I be anything but resigned about it.

        • WaterGoddess Azura

          Your too late on this you clearly loss this move on….

          • Shenai

            Sure, but I am the original poster, there’s no deadline, I can still say whatever I want to say, no?

          • WaterGoddess Azura

            Yeah to show you already loss and making yourself look more worse all means do so.

          • Shenai

            Why are you being so antagonistic? There’s nothing to win or lose. I didn’t make myself “bad” or “worse”, I merely expressed my opinion. I didn’t think I did it in a way that was so inflammatory to people. I didn’t say anything derogatory or aggresive as far as I’m concerned. Apparently some people took it that way, I don’t see how clarifying it now is a problem. I don’t check comments online that often.

          • Daniel Smith

            clarifying it isn’t a problem at all, it actually made things better imo…

            my 2 cents is Camilla made it. Ok, if they make her well (maybe focusing more on her cold, aggressive personality rather than her typical doting) I think that would be cool

            Eliwood same thing in sense of I would rather have other characters, but I am not that upset about him winning

            Michaiah probably my least favorite of this group, will try to get her because I like having all the brave heroes, but definitely my least favorite of the 4

            Finally, Alm has a lot of potential and can be an incredible unit, (especially if he is the Conqueror class)

            next year I really hope it is the following 4
            Marth (been robbed 3 years in a row of being top 5 minimum)
            Anna (its her time)
            Robin M my favorite character besides
            Robin F because she was really close again this year and it would be cool if both robins won at the same time

            anyway this might be more than 2cents, so keep the change

  • 100%B-Type

    1. Congratulations on all Winners!
    2. It´s nice to see 2 Anna´s and 3 OC FEH Units in Top20~
    3. For CYL4, I Vote for… well I don´t know yet~

  • 3-13 Archer

    I’m so glad Eliwood did it that I don’t care about Camilla at all (one less character to go for). And Soren in 9th place! I feel sorry for Anna, though. To me she is the face of the franchise instead of Marth.
    My guesses are that Micaiah might be a singer and Alm will have his old dick armor, similar to Celica.

  • Zog58

    Very pleased with the CYL results, Micaiah and Alm winning is awesome.

    I am concerned about the current lack of a FEH channel though. Anniversary is tomorrow… was hoping for a bit more than one or two in-game notices, especially with all the flak FEH is getting from Langrisser right now.

    • Daniel Smith

      Get your wish?

      • Zog58

        Indeed, very pleased with IS right now.

  • mrkisukes

    To anyone upset over Camilla winning over your choice, I will reiterate something I was told last year…there is always the next CYL.

  • Volttekka

    Oh hey, Rinkah’s at least in the top 100, so I’m at least somewhat satisfied.

  • Mito Requiem

    My Marth experience

  • The Based DD

    I’m just happy Ilyana made it to the top 100. Not that anything could get me interested in mobile games but I still want the artwork and voice clips.
