  1. Tempest Trials: Genealogy of Light!

    After some really bad luck with my last summoning session (around 200 orbs spent for 2 5*, one with a bad nature), I was hoping Ayra would be a TT reward. Pretty scummy of IS to put her on a separate banner with old units. Whelp, they aren't getting my money, but whales gonna whale. I think I'll make my team Deirdre/Arvis/Polivia/Nephenee.
  2. Who should do the artwork for the game?

    Sachiko Wada is a woman, tho. Kozaki's style doesn't directly involve fanservice, as many of his concept art pieces show. The fanservice was part of the art direction for those games. --- Anyway, my preferred returning artists are 1. Hidari 2. Senri Kita 3. Sachiko Wada For new artists (to the main series), Haimura Kiyotaka (the artist for Heroes Julia and Deirdre seems pretty good.
  3. Grand Hero Battle Arvis

    I used S.Corrin/Michalis/Palla/Ninian. Corrin's Desperation was really helpful for taking down mages and Palla and Ninian were warping everywhere with WoM. Those one turn wins are pretty neat. I had to kill every last unit....
  4. Why I won't be buying this game new...

    So you don't know a single thing about the game and you're already planning to boycott it?
  5. Sure, but part of that is gameplay. The player generally as fewer and stronger units because this is a tactical game where the individual survival of units is important. The problem with taking Castle Zofia is that the narative painted a clear picture of the Deliverance getting their asses kicked, and then overnight they take out the enemy's strongest fortress. I understand it's a remake, but if they wanted to show the Deliverance getting stronger or Dessaix's troops losing morale, they should show it gradually. And as far as Alm is credited as the hero, he should actually contribute something to their new success other than showing up. Heck, if Alm commented on the disproportionate praise he receives compared to his contribution, it would better cement that he is just a figurehead rather than the instant awesome-sauce leader people say he is.
  6. Can you find the part of the script where this is stated? I always assume that in any battle, the numbers of both enemies and allies are a mere representation of the number of actual units. You only need to pay attention to the ratio of enemies to allies. My understanding of SS is that Ephraim lead a guerilla force into Grado, not that he decided to take down a country with literally 4 people. Regardless, even if FE6&8 had questionable victories, that doesn't excuse the taking of Zofia castle or why Alm was praised as the hero despite not really contributing to that victory.
  7. Would YOU like to see a Second generation?

    I said no to the poll if you mean child characters plucked from the future. I think more than the child units themselves, the effect it has on supports is more troubling (though I could talk at length for how nightmarish the deeprealms are). In Awakening and Fates, you were required to have most first gen females support with most first gen males for gameplay diversity, which created a lot of incompatible pairings, out-of-nowhere romances, and redundancy. It also probably contributed to the amount of character gimmicks so writers could resort to "Trope A meets Trope B" supports. If we were to have a second generation, I'd want it to be after a time skip, with the cast composed of children, aged 1st gens and brand new characters who joined the army later. Characters would have limited support pools to focus on character development over gameplay. It would be much more satisfying to see how 1st gen characters changed over the years rather than seeing some 17 year olds matured into wizened parents overnight.
  8. While I'm a reset player, I think I would enjoy a mode that gives you extra rewards for playing Ironman style. Something like unlocking additional items, characters or gaidens. I don't know how they would enforce people playing it without resets, but it would be neat. As far as general gameplay goes, more nods to character deaths should be made as we can see in PoR and SoV.
  9. Voting Gauntlet: The Blood of Dragons!

    Hah, that's pretty amusing actually. This gauntlet had two characters who lost twice in the same gauntlet, and one of those characters was defeated twice by the same person. Double kill!
  10. Voting Gauntlet: The Blood of Dragons!

    But seriously, what happened to Dorcas? Even if we decide to pull out all the tinfoil and assume there was foul play, I'm okay with it. Ninian was the more popular character and she won. Everyone go home and have a good day.
  11. Voting Gauntlet: The Blood of Dragons!

    Hurrah for Team Ninian! Tons of feathers for me and more love for Elibe. Well done to Team Corrin, you really had us on the ropes. This completely. This is my personal Chrom vs Ephraim part two. So we have a match where the ending was very close, and yet the more popular character won. This is literally what everyone hopes a VG match will be. But let's complain about it! Too late. People can't even be happy with a narrow victory and have to assume meddling.
  12. Voting Gauntlet: The Blood of Dragons!

    I think people who want "fairer" matches are going to be disappointed in the end. Ninian and Corrin are both popular but Ninian (by pure voter strength) has an unbeatable lead. Lyn and Camilla are much the same. How could the devs possibly know what would be an even match? It only happens by accident, and an infrequent one at that. "fair" generally equates to "forgone conclusion".
  13. Voting Gauntlet: The Blood of Dragons!

    This. Even if my team loses to an upset, it would be boring if we were guaranteed to win from the start. You don't have tension without the possibility to lose.
  14. Voting Gauntlet: The Blood of Dragons!

    Sure, but everything in moderation. I want my fries lightly salted, not covered by the whole container.
  15. Voting Gauntlet: The Blood of Dragons!

    They're objectively scum.
