  1. This is just stupid.

    Nice art. It reminds me of that old rumor when the game was just out about Sakura being killed by some Faceless. Personally I agree with what @Sunwoo said. There was no reason for Takumi apologizing at the end and the game treating him as wrong because he doesn't trust/like Corrin. Garon doesn't use Sakura at all when they captured her, not even like a hostage but Garon wanting to make Sakura suffer so like that Anankos could possess her (like how he wanted Corrin to suffer), would be more interesting than what we got. Since Corrin spared Hinoka, he could also spare Takumi as well if he isn't possessed by Anankos and lied to Garon (and Sakura if she is being watched all the time by Garon or his lackeys) that he killed them like how a true Nohrian should. Obviously she would see Ryoma commiting suicide and Iago and Hans killing innocent Hoshidans in the Hinoka chapter. She could start to get mad about what happened to her nation and her family and hates Corrin at this point. After Slime Garon failed to kill to his "children", Anankos could talk in her head saying he can give her power to revenge Hoshido and defeat Nohr. So that way, it would be more similar to what happened to than a true possession. Her not apologizing at the end before dying would be great too. Takumi is still alive, becomes the king of Hoshido and doesn't forgive Corrin about what he and Nohr did. Hoshido and Nohr are obviously not on better terms at the end of the game compared to Conquest and there is no "I forgive you because you're still my sibling/I would make the Hoshidans like you" nonsense. There would still be some problems about the story but it would be a much better and logical ending. I would also probably feel very sad for Sakura especially compared to the other deaths. Big Brother could also apply to Corrin or maybe to Ryoma since she couldn't save him or something and not necessary Takumi. EDIT: Apparently she apologizes to Takumi since she couldn't save him http://apticho.tumblr.com/post/147363175582/imagine-in-conquest-if-when-takumi-had-jumped-off
  2. FEH isn't the only game where Ike is stated to be the strongest Hero. If you consider FE13's DLC canon, the Old Hubba said it too in the Champion of Yore 3: I think it was also one of the reasons why Chrom wanted to recruit Priam. Aside from him, pretty much all the characters who have Holy Blood in FE4 especially the kids and the others in FE5 such as Galzus are probably the strongest. Though Reinhardt doesn't have Holy Blood, he was said to be the second coming of the Crusader Tordo/Thrud according to Dorias. The Brand of the Exalt, the brand of Mila and Duma are also proofs of having a special bond with Naga, Mila and Duma who are all Divine Dragons kinda like the Holy Blood (some of the Crusaders' descendants had brands/marks too) so I guess it could mean that Chrom and some of his family's members, Alm and Celica are supposed to be pretty strong. Chrom also has broken the wall of the Ylisse's castle and he and the Falchion were pretty much blessed by Naga near the end of FE13. Moreover, if you want to recruit Walhart, Chrom needs to attack him at least once on the paralogue. I guess it makes Robin quite OP as well if that's the same thing with their brand. The FE13 kids are probably pretty strong too because of the world they are from and Xander nearly lost a match against Inigo/Laslow. Anankos also gave some sort of power to Inigo, Severa and Owain. The Branded in the Tellius games seem to be powerful as well. Stefan said in his support with Mordecai that the Branded have great power thanks to their Laguz blood. Micaiah had unique and special abilities though I am not sure if I would say she is pretty strong. Stefan himself and the Black Knight are pretty OP lore wise. Petrine was strong enough to be one of the Daein's Four Riders and Soren has good magic abilities. Spirit charmers are more adept with magic and can become very powerful mages so I guess Pelleas can count. Overall it seems that most people who has a kind of brand/mark are quite strong lore wise. The Three Regalia are strong and legendary weapons so I guess we could add Hardin, Camus, Jeorge, Astram and Minerva (the Hauteclere is said to be on par with the Regalia) . If I remember well Jeorge was also considered to be the strongest Archer on the Archanea continent. Other villains like Nergal, Ashnard, Gharnef, Zephiel, etc... are probably somewhere near the top. Marth for being able to defeat Medeus, Athos and others wielders of the Legendary Weapons of Elibe like Hector, other descendants of dragons and people having dragon blood like the Fates Royals are other good choices. There are probably some others I forgot but there are the only ones I can think about right now.
  3. FE16 "leaks"

    /vg/ means Video Games General. /v/ threads discuss about everything game related, /vg/ has threads for specific games compared to /v/. /vg/ discuss one game/series per thread. One of the threads on /vg/ is about FE and people who post leaks about FE (such as SoV being leaked, Heroes datamines/leaks, Warriors' special edition box with Celica and Lyn etc...) generally posted it on the FE thread on /vg/ first rather on /v/. Of course it's possible that it could be true but personally this is why I am quite skeptical about this and why I prefer to wait for more information. True about swords Lords. Like I said I probably think too much about this. What I meant about Nohr having little sunshine was that IS could reuse that aspect and some others elements of Fates and Nohr if they want to do a FE game about vampires. Like you said they reuse some of Awakening's elements for Fates so they could do it again. I agree that FE Switch should not do the same mistake that Fates did by trying to be similar to Awakening and instead, should be more unique.
  4. Voting Gauntlet: The Blood of Dragons!

    Heroes did a few spoilers already so I don' think they care that much about it. For example they revealed that Seliph and Julia are related and that Sanaki has a sibling. I want Sophia! More love for Sophia is always good for me.
  5. FE16 "leaks"

    The "Alain the protagonist, all I know, however is that he uses a sword" sounds like a troll attempt to me especially that it happens around the time some people were complaining about sword users in Warriors but I might think too much about it. I also find kinda weird and suspicious that it was posted on /v/ rather than the general on /vg/. If that's true I wouldn't be surprised though since Fates had a few Gothic/Vampire elements. For example Nohr was described as a kingdom where the sun rarely shines, Faceless' japanese name is Nosferatu. In the Fates Halloween DLC, Leo was disguised as a Vampire, Camilla as a Succubus and Oboro as a Gothic Lolita so Vampires and Succubi appearing in FE would not be weird to me. We also got Gargoyles in some games too. Nohr also seems to be more popular and promoted than Hoshido as we can see in Heroes so maybe IS would want to continue and maybe improve what they were doing with Nohr. However I hope it will not mean that FE Switch will be Fates 2.0. I like the idea of new demons/monsters/non-humans that could be playable and the return of Light magic and a day/night mechanic. A villainous avatar sounds interesting as long as it's not a Corrin 2.0. Shapeshifters similar to Tellius' Laguz are nice too but I hope they could still fight somehow in their base form.
  6. Voting Gauntlet: The Blood of Dragons!

    I just hope it's a manakete and a few half-dragons VG and not a Fates Royal VG. Yeah Mikoto is pure human. A full blood vs half blood would be interesting indeed.
  7. Favorite level/map?

    FE5 Chapter 14 Open Fire and FE10 Chapter 2 Endgame Elincia's Gambit are my favorite maps. There are many things to do in Chapter 14 despite it being a defense chapter such as recruiting Homer, getting the Nosferatu/Resire tome, the Dragon Lance, other items thanks to capture and visiting the houses for the Chapter 14x. Meanwhile you also need to deal with a huge and strong army, 3 bosses, FE5's annoying Ballisticians and the Schwarze Rosen (strong Dark/Lopto Mages). This chapter also has a very good atmosphere story wise. What I love about Elincia's Gambit are the multiple objectives, the chapter really feeling like a civil war with the huge enemy army and your army which is composed of Elincia, the other playable characters and the yellow allied units. Geoffrey's team coming to the rescue, the ending with Elincia's decision and the Greil Mercenaries' appearance were nice moments too. Easily my favorite defense map in FE10. Chapter 3-13 Blood Contract is a pretty good defense chapter too but gameplay wise I prefer the units you use in Elincia's Gambit more than the one in Blood Contract. The 3-13 Archer also helped to make this chapter fun as well.
  8. Awakening/Fates hate?

    From what I have seen it seems that there are multiple reasons. For FE13 the main complaints I have seen are about the map designs, pair up, fanservice, Avatar, story and the characters being too "gimmicky" due to some of them following an anime trope. Personally I quite enjoyed some of its characters and even the story a bit but I can see why someone would hate these aspects. I must admit that I am not a fan of the map designs too. There are also some tensions between the old and the new fans. Some of these complaints are also the same in FE14 too. For example Revelation is often bashed for its map design, some mechanics and a questionable unit balance. Compared to Awakening, the children system don't particulary have a reason to be in the game story wise. Fanservice is often criticized too for stuffs like skinship, characters' designs like Camilla's and her during 2 cutscenes, etc... Look at some discussions about the most recent Voting Gauntlet in FE Heroes and you would see some people hating Camilla and even insulting her fans for example. Also it was said in the Japanese Direct that in Conquest, one of the themes would be changing Nohr from the inside, (in NoA it was about a revolution from what I remember) so people got hyped at first and then were disappointed to see it wasn't the case. An another major theme of Fates is also not respected and pretty much ruins this game's original premise but I am not going to spoil it. So story wise we can say that people were pretty much disappointed and felt lied to. From what I have seen, currently some people seem to feel lied to as well because of Warriors including Lyn. Some people also hate how the localization was handled for FE14 as well. Personally, I am not a fan of Revelation, the map designs overall (even for Conquest especially during the midgame where I didn't like most of them) , the story and most of the characters as well. I don't mind the fanservice but I must admit that the Camilla cutscene in Birthright and the one with Corrin bumping into her boobs in Conquest feel ridiculous. FE14 is definitely not one of my favorite games in the series but there are some aspects and characters I quite enjoyed from this game. So I would say the main reasons for the hate are generally the gameplay, story, characters, fanservice and the tensions between the new and old fans. I have seen people complaning about Echoes' gameplay and story as well but yes, Echoes seem to be less hated than Awakening and Fates. I guess the game not having some of Awakening/Fates mechanics like marriage and pair up and Echoes having a decent worldbuilding and maybe because of some of its characters having less supports and "feeling less gimmicky" probably help.
  9. Lyn Confirmed

    Nice to see Lyn and more Archanean characters such as Caeda and possibly Navarre. The bad behavior I have seen from them was just in the Voting Gauntlet and a few dumb Youtube comments for Lyn's reveal in Warriors that shouldn't be taken seriously. But yeah aside from that I have seen more complaints about it than than the bad behavior.
  10. Jokes and Memes about Heroes

    Did you guys knew that Heroes has a hidden support conversation? It's even the same C support conversation!
  11. Fire Emblem Heroes General Discussion and Links

    Paralogues 1-1, 2-1, 3-1, 4-1 and 5-1.
  12. Unlikely. From what I remember Fates got a ROM and later on an English patch as well. There were even people who said they would prefer to get it instead of the localized version of the game because of the localization and it didn't seem to have affected the sales. 3DS seems to be harder to hack as well compared to previous systems so I doubt that many people got ROMs for these games. IS seems to be satisfied with Echoes' sales as well due to how much they marketed it recently so I don't think it sold that poorly. I see what you mean but I don't think it is only a thing for the younger audience especially how it seems much harder to hack the 3DS compared to the previous systems or for testing it like a demo. People who are interested in the other games (such as FE1-6, FE12 and TearRing Saga) but don't speak Japanese and are interested about knowing what's going on/or for gameplay reasons (such as understanding the interface), might want to play ROMs for these games with an English patch. I have the actual Tellius games but some people might prefer a ROM for these games due to how rare and expensive these games are nowadays compared to their initial releases as well. Of course there are also many fangames for FE who require a ROM as well though I guess it's different for that case.
  13. CYL FEH Channel Livestream coming Monday 3.30am UTC

    Made me chuckle. I guess it would make him the first Colorless Flier with shurikens (shurikens being replaced by mechakoopas).
  14. Inclusion of Other Fantasy Races

    I would love to see more races other than humans and the shapeshifters in FE. FE developing its own fantasy races like the Manaketes and the Laguz would be nice as long as they continue to make them interesting and not recopying the concept over and over again like how FE did with the Taguels, Kitsunes and Wolfskins who feel like Laguz's clones with less backstory. For the traditional fantasy races such as Elves, Orcs, etc... I would love to see something new and quite different from the usual ones we see in other fantasies. It would be interesting to see more uncommon fantasy races too. FE14 kinda did that with the Kitsunes who are less known than the traditional Elves for example. Though instead of giving them only beaststones, it would have been better if they could also use magic like they tend to do in other medias. I also think the stones should only be given to the races that are well known for their transformation abilities. For example an Orc will of course not be able to transform into a giant pig but instead using weapons such as axes and hammers. Orcs could share classes with humans but they could get their own exclusive classes and weapons and of course there are some human weapons/classes or from an another race the Orcs couldn't use. Same with the humans and the other non-humans races. Gameplay wise it could make the game even more fun. Aside from the Manaketes, Laguz and the other shapeshifters, FE also has many monsters that could easily be turned into more "civilized" races. For example, FE8 hasTarvos/Maelduin which are pretty much centaurs and Gorgons which can be seen as a kind of Lamias. TearRing Saga apparently has Ogres, Harpies and Golems and FE14 even has Golems that could help you during some MyCastle battles too. Also a Demon race technically exists as well in FE8 thanks to Fomortiis. A Demon race and an Angel race are fine as well as long as they avoid the whole "all the Demons are always evil/all the Angels are always good" cliche. There are some stories and games where it's not always the case and I don't see why it wouldn't happen in FE as well (same with the other "protagonist or good and antagonist or evil" races). Of course it's essential for these races to have a good amount of backstory and distinctive gameplay features. Also if IS decides to include an avatar system in the next game and if the game has some non-human races, I am sure it could benefit the avatar system with more and much better customization choices, gameplay wise and even story wise. If marriage between different race members and children are also (somehow) in the game , I guess the kids could just share some of their parents' weakness and strengths like how all the Corrin's children are weak to dragonslaying weapons no matter the class. Personally for now I am more interested to see how far IS could go at first before reintroducing marriage again but it's just an idea about what they could do with the races and a possible avatar system.
  15. Least favorite: Fates (Revelation) 1. Most of the RV exclusive supports are better than the ones in BR and CQ. 2. RV's chapter 19 was much better than CQ's chapter 15. 3. I liked the idea of not being able to save between RV's chapter 16 and 17 and between chapter 27 and the endgame chapter. 4. Ryoma's moments with Scarlet were kinda nice. 5. Good OST. Favorite: FE12 1. Lack of map objectives. 2. Marth being the only unit able to visit the villages (and Minerva I guess if you want to count her for that one specific village). 3. Not unique sprites. 4. Pegasus Knight being the only class branch (Falcon Knight/Dracoknight) in the game. 5. The Dark mage/Sorcerer class is not that useful to me compared to the Shaman and Dark mage classes from the other games.
