  1. Alm, Hero of Prophecy

    Minor nickpick about the history section there: "He was released six days before Echoes hit the stores in Japan, so Heroes is technically his debut game!" He was in FE2. He's older than Sigurd even; the only FE Lord that's older than Alm is Marth. He was also a DLC einherjar in Awakening if you want to get technical. So its more like Heroes was his 3rd game, not his debut.
  2. Rally For Marth To Join the CYL2 Winners

    Actually its a perfectly reasonable conclusion. We have zero evidence for it meaning anything. Zero. Not a single shred of actual evidence just fans pleading for it to mean something. If anything we have evidence against it meaning anything as per history (CYL1 Micaiah not even being "they're coming soon, we see that they have a fair bit of support"). Wild guessing/grasping at straws never does anything but generating false hopes. Can point to Micaiah again about that, except this time back when Sanaki was added and she mentioned her sister during her map and people thinking it would mean that Micaiah was coming soon. No dice. People keep doing this to themselves with this game, and its getting rather sad. Remember all of the people thinking that because of all of the backlash about Ayra they would either give us a free one or never do something like that again? No free Ayra, Rhajat or w/e her name is got the same treatment. The only ever so slight difference was that they gave us a small heads up in advance. Backlash about Lucius? Nothing changed. Not even the last healer we got. Its highly unlikely that the healer changes were made because of that, that's more likely IS looking at usage numbers and going "guys, they don't even use healers for endurance things like TT let alone Arena. We should probably give them a small buff". Backlash means nothing, and there's probably less about Marth this time around than there is about Ayra back then. Marth will get a Legends/TT Rewards version at some point, people will tell themselves its because of the vote splitting when it was probably already planned months ago, and that will be that.
  3. Rally For Marth To Join the CYL2 Winners

    Nothing to do with physical vs magical, all to do with "if you have two focus units of the same colour, they get in the way of each other for sniping, and that could upset the whales". What the whales want > everything else for special banners like CYL. The whole point is to maximize profits. Whales want to +10 whoever they want, not get frustrated by pulling the wrong focus unit repeatedly. The only way around it is if they release a new TT at the same time and make him the TT reward. But that would suck to have a CYL style unit locked to limited merges. I think people are reading into the front page too much/a small bit of vocal backlash too much. https://events.fire-emblem-heroes.com/vote For the original CYL here Micaiah was on the front afterwards and people assumed back then that meant she was coming soon because hey, she was a lord not in the game who did well. She only arrived last month. Marth was on the front of that one as well randomly, no special treatment for him at all. They slap whoever they want on the front of pages for w/e reason. No real correlation.
  4. Rally For Marth To Join the CYL2 Winners

    They don't want to block CYL sniping for new CYL banners. Very intentional that there's 4 and one for each colour. No way to add a 5th character without that happening. He'll get a Legendary version at some point as a nod to the total votes combined between the two versions. Probably some 6 months from now or so, depends on how many months in advance they plan things, unless he was already on the schedule to get one soon.
  5. Reinhardt, Thunder's Fist

    There's also running into the occasional flier team as well. Some of those blues have high res, and then they have flier buffs on top of that. I know some people on GameFAQs did some number crunching back in the day and there were a few blue fliers where lancebreaker was needed to land the kill. Think it was before Quickened Pulse existed, but there ya go. --- For his B Passive, I did run Pass for a long time. Its not a horrible choice on him, certainly works for a trolly option in arena defence where people will quit if they lose one unit. Not being able to wall out Reinhardt can be lethal to a unit farther back.
  6. New Ike is awesome. That attack animation in particular. It also means more FE heroes will become Legendary heroes in the future. Pretty sure Marth will be one in short order. New orbs is good. Xander rerun is good (curious what the Elite GHB was). Rhythm game is... meh w/e. Free 5* is good as long as the community is smart which... I'm not hopeful about. Hero Fest banner is pretty great. Went in with zero expectations. That's the key for these things. Too many people hype themselves up and never learn.
  7. Weapon Refinery Update for February 7th

    Chrom/Lucina get to add Heavy Blade to their Falchion, Alm gets Infantry Pulse 3 on his Falchion, Marth gets Attack/Def Bond 3? Plays to all of their strengths fairly well, also all reasonably fitting for their personalities.
  8. Well, Micaiah's not really in striking distance (on track to make it in in 2 years though. Yay?), so I guess I'll go with Eirika. If her brother makes it in, it would be a shame for her not to be in at the same time. And it might mean her sword finally gets an upgraded version as well.
  9. Banner: Sacred Memories

    Marisa sucks. Low attack, only somewhat high speed (and no IVs means its not fixable). Lyon is decent. L'Ararchel is... not good. Too balanced of stats while still being extremely squishy. Eirika is pretty good. Not amazing, but probably the best horse bladetome user now. Myrrh is looking pretty great, but it will be interesting to see how two sets of weaknesses plays out for her.
  10. They wouldn't do a 5 man banner. They want one for each colour type most likely like they did last time. And we've only ever had one banner in FE:H's history with more than 4 characters, with us normally down to 3 now. Marth would not be a CYL winner if that happened. IS probably wouldn't respond to the minimal backlash at all. No need to, it would be drowned out by the Hector and Chrom/Ephraim/Alm fans (whoever it is who gets second).
  11. I'm doubtful Ephraim gained popularity because of FE:H. He already had a fairly loyal fanbase, but nothing has really been done with him in FE:H to make him gain more. He's not a meta unit (so he won't gain a Reinhardt style boost), and his Disgusting meme is well, not something I see taking votes away from Awakening/Fates crowd (which is where he would need to steal from). Don't forget, he's quite possibly losing some votes to Alm as well now that Alm is actually known by the casual audience. Heck they probably know Alm better than Ephraim as a whole. Would not shock me to see Alm in the top 5 because while Echoes wasn't received as well gameplay wise most people liked its writing. Most of the previous Ike/Roy votes are probably going to Hector (old school FE) and split among the two different versions of Marth (Smash FE fans). The votes from old school FE fans going from Ike/Roy to him are likely counterbalanced by losing votes to Alm imo. That's before considering say, some Lucina fans who decide to vote Chrom this time around. Ephraim has a chance of 2nd for the males for sure. But my money would be on Chrom. Probably Hector > Chrom > Ephraim > Alm > Marth (Shadow Dragons)
  12. I would not use a reddit poll to extrapolate what will happen in CYL2 at all. Reddit has a far, far, far higher concentration of old school FE fans than FE:H at whole. While is certainly nice data to have, in terms of guessing how CYL2 will go its effectively meaningless. Likewise, don't assume things like say, people will learn from the last CYL and rally around one particular version of a character (Marth). Quite frankly, the general play base fall under one of the following: 1) not smart enough to pick up on that idea 2) has that idea but thinks version B instead of version A should be the rallying point 3) wasn't around for the original CYL and has no idea about the vote splits. Marth is doomed because of this. Don't think he will ever be able to secure a top 2.
  13. Tharja and Camilla are lock ins. They will get the majority of what was Lucina's votes last time on top of being 3rd and 4th last time, nobody else has a realistic chance to get in unless Celica is far more popular than I expect or Azura/Fem!Corrin manages to steal enough votes to squeeze into 2nd (certainly nobody from a game older than Awakening has a chance). Hector is also most likely a lock in. The only toss up is the 2nd male slot. That could go any number of ways, I'm leaning towards Chrom making it in though. EDIT: As for their weapons/classes Hector - Sword Armour. Something about it being his brother's sword. Chrom - Bow infantry. Tharja - Blue tome pegasus knight. Camilla - Green tome horse.
  14. Grand Hero Battle: Lyon

    Gimme powercreeped Sophia plz. 15 speed, bonus BST, even defences, unique tome. Probably won't be that great sadly, but Lyon is a favourite of mine.
  15. Micaiah is getting every single one of my votes. Though yeah, Tharja and Camilla probably have that on lock down sadly.
