  1. That wouldn't be an echo fighter. It would be a similar concept but completely different moves.
  2. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    If you don't want to play Lyn's mode, that's up to you alone. Yeah, Sain and Kent are better. So what? Assuming only the best are used is a poor way to judge units. Your name suggests - or rather, states - you don't use only the best units as it is.
  3. I always buy some games during Steam sales that I end up never playing.
  4. Specifically, they said she was top 5 in the US, first in Europe, and #1 overall. They never said that.
  5. What do you mean? As far as I know, the only characters anyone considers deconfirmed are assist trophies, Pokeballs, etc. Those certainly are still deconfirmed. They wouldn't be in those rolls if they were going to be playable. You remember incorrectly. That didn't happen.
  6. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    I don't really know what to say to this other than...all the time. I've never had any issue with using Lyn as a front line combatant. She was a carry in both my HHM and EHM ranked runs. I've never had trouble keeping her alive. Nothing I say about it ever seems to convince anyone, so I've gotten really tired of going around running numbers and scenarios. If you're really interested, just try using them together in a run of HHM. Maybe it's my play style, I don't know at this point. Maybe one day I'll do and record another HHM ranked run where I use her. At this point I feel it's the only way to get anything across. See, I've never felt like Lyn takes significant work to get payoff. I just use her, and she works. Yeah, I do typically give her the LHM Energy Ring, and I don't find Kent or Florina get more use out of it. Sometimes I'll give it to someone else if my Lyn is doing really well in Str by Ch 10, though. There are all of 2 stat boosters in LHM and I never mentioned giving her the Robe.

    It's not about whether you should use them. It's about when you do.
  8. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    It was, wasn't it? Yeah, I forgot about that. Unless you're going for strict LTC, this is a really overstated issue. Yeah, there are times where Florina might fly ahead, but it's not nearly often enough to make the support not still worth it otherwise. Flight isn't just good for going on ahead (which is sometimes just a bad idea), it's good for general maneuverability, even within the core group. I don't really understand why you keep discounting her support and you're not even mentioning the potential of the Energy Ring. If you're using Lyn but ignoring her options, why even use her? The 3 units are whoever the player chooses them to be.
  9. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    If you focus on 3 units in LHM, Lyn being one of them, lv 9 should be easy. Note that I said atk, not Str, since multiple factors effect this. C Florina is one turn, which is an easy +1. Mani Katti is 8 MT, which Guy needs either a Steel Sword or Killing Edge to match early on, the former of which drops his Spd by 5 and the latter of which is much more limited in use and can be used by anyone with swords. There's the potential that Lyn got the LHM Energy Ring which Guy doesn't have access to. Then Lyn has +10 Str growth. If she's not better than him in atk right away, she will be soon. And my comment was meant to encompass the whole game, not just when Lyn joins.
  10. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    This rarely matters in this game for dodgy units. This is blatantly false. A Florina support grants both +3 atk and +15 crit. How can that not matter? Bows give Lyn ranged options Guy just simply doesn't have. This gives her much better flexibility in how she's used. Lyn can't use it 'forever', but she doesn't need to, she just needs it where it's needed, which should make it last for the tougher early game until later when she just doesn't even need it much anymore. But Lyn is still better than Guy without it because she has just as much speed and typically has better atk. Why not? It's practically a guaranteed kill against enemies it's effective against, which Guy certainly can't claim. I dunno, I don't tend to have any trouble keeping her alive.
  11. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    I already don't think they're too far away, but the value of promotion items in ranked runs tends to be overstated. Funds isn't so tight that you can't afford to promote multiple units so long as you aren't needlessly throwing your money away. So to answer the question, no. At least, not to a degree that it's worth mentioning.
  12. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    Well, I prefer ranked HHM, but I can't think of a context outside skipping LHM in which Guy would actually be better. She's practically always offensively stronger, has a powerful Prf weapon all to herself, has a quick support with one of the best units in the game (Florina), and gets ranged combat on promotion.
  13. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    Just used in LHM first.
  14. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    How bad can it be when Lyn really is better than Guy?

    Instead of constantly saying "agree to disagree" it might be a better idea to lead by example and just stop posting.
