  1. +1 for Aquantis! Aquantis was great, everything was in awesome condition, shipped quickly and everything was packed safely and effectively.
  2. Hi all! Just finished a fic earlier today that I posted on AO3 and so I thought I'd provide a link if anyone wants to check it out: http://archiveofourown.org/works/10962279/chapters/24403257 It's a four-parter, which is my take on the C, B, A, and S support conversations that Hector and Tharja would have in the Heroes mobile game if supports were a thing. I'm hoping to do a ton more of these fics down the road with different crack pairs, but went with my fave Heroes crack pairing first because I wanted to start off strong. Would love to hear any feedback on content, writing style, etc., or any other thoughts that y'all have. It's been ages since I've done any actual fanfiction so the help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  3. Honestly this has been me with other social media surrounding the gauntlet. I've found that there's been a lot of negativity floating around and...as much as I'm enjoying the new gauntlet mechanics, I'm finding a lot of the discourse in different tags, etc. to be pretty toxic. With Serenes I don't feel like it's been as bad, but...yeah.
  4. Personally speaking, and being on Team Tharja, the multiplier mechanic has definitely made this a more engaging and nail-biting experience. I'm digging it. And like...as much as I'd like to win, this definitely makes me feel more invested in the event and in the team battles.
  5. For my Team Tharja dudes, I still have 2K in flags left and I'm just waiting on an opportune moment to drop 'em. Hang in there! It's not over till it's over! Speaking of which, anybody on Tharja's team have any thoughts on strategy going forward from here, where we're down by close to a billion? Part of me wants to wait for us to get the multiplier but if Team Robin just holds us even like this for a while, and if we don't make headway, we could end up losing just waiting for the multiplier to kick in. I'm thinking I'll probably going to try for a moderated approach if we haven't had multiplier by partway through tomorrow, save like 400 flags in case of a multiplier and just burn everything else. P.S. Congrats to Team Robin for the wild ride this gauntlet round has been so far - you're tipping our scales hard! (But It's still anybody's game!) P.P.S. If anybody wants to use my Hector or Tharja (and I kind of alternate between them as main), add me at 1227575257!
  6. Hi all, Still playing around with deckbuilding and I hit I've hit a bit of a roadblock - trying to figure out good draw support cards. So far I'm coming up with Azel, Tinni, Patti (who works because of some of the supporting cards in my existing deck well) but I'm trying to find either other gold cards that will do decent draw support, or blue or violet if I can't find others in gold. I've poked through the wiki and so far I'm not coming up with a lot - anyone have suggestions? Thanks!
  7. Admittedly (and y'all could probably guess by my forum avatar) I'll be backing Team Tharja. She has been a fave for ages and I'm stoked to be able to be able to use my 5* Tharja for the event. I'm also hoping to use mage battles as an excuse to dust off my art skills and do some Gauntlet-themed art pieces too...Might actually finally graduate from traditional art and get around to using my tablet. xD (Salty tho because no Nino.)
  8. Also knows the joys (HA HA HAAAAA) of a Canadian winter
  9. Feedback for a bunch of folks incoming! xD +1 Mallow - Items arrived in awesome condition and well within ETA! +1 DATbee - Ditto! +1 Kirie - Ditto again!
  10. +1 to Kirie - awesome transaction, everything well and securely packed, and everything arrived well within ETA. Thanks!
  11. I think one of my absolute favorites has to be Sully's "A lot of guys have underestimated me. They're dead now."
  12. I just promoted Sharena the other day. No regrets. xD The next promotion is going to be harder to figure out, I think. I've got Tharja and Sharena promoted, and...now I'm debating between Narcian and Michaelis next - having a flying unit would be nice, and I don't have a green 5* yet so this would check both of those boxes.
  13. The responses on this so far are tremendously helpful, and makes figuring this all out on my end a lot easier. Thanks, all!
  14. This one's probably going to be an odd question and I don't know if someone's already done this, but thought I might throw this out as a question to any math/probability nerds around (and all glory and honor to thee, math nerds, because even though I'm a university history major most high school math lies far beyond my grasp) but I was trying to work this out for a friend of mine who's been stockpiling her orbs. She's waiting on some of her faves (one blue and one green both in the 4*-5* group specifically) and I'm trying to figure out if it works out better from a probability point of view for her to just stick to summoning blue and green or if it works out better from a probability vs. cost point of view to just keep doing a full summon each time. So, trying to work it out myself, I started with identifying the number of each unit in-game by color and star: 5* - Red 18, Blue 12, Green 9, Colorless 9 4* - Red 26, Blue 19, Green 15, Colorless 20 3* - Red 15, Blue 12, Green 9, Colorless 13 And then I tried to break each down to a percentage chance per unit by color: Red Orb: 3% for Focus (if applicable) 3% for 5*, 1/18 of 3% which would basically work out to 0.167% per character 36% for 4*, 1/26 of 36% which would basically work out to 1.38% per character 61% for 3*, 1/15 of 61% which would basically work out to 4.07% per character Blue Orb: 3% for Focus (if applicable) 3% for 5*, 1/12 of 3% which would basically work out to 0.25% per character 36% for 4*, 1/19 of 36% which would basically work out to 1.89% per character 61% for 3*, 1/12 of 61% which would basically work out to 5.08% per character Green Orb: 3% for Focus (if applicable) 3% for 5*, 1/9 of 3% which would basically work out to 0.33% per character 36% for 4*, 1/15 of 36% which would basically work out to 2.4% per character 61% for 3*, 1/9 of 61% which would basically work out to 6.78% per character Colorless: 3% for Focus (if applicable) 3% for 5*, 1/9 of 3% which would basically work out to 0.33% per character 36% for 4*, 1/20 of 36% which would basically work out to 1.8% per character 61% for 3*, 1/13 of 61% which would basically work out to 4.69% per character But this leaves me with a few questions that I was hoping anyone who's been working with stats for the game so far would be able to clarify: If the color isn't in focus, does that 3% just not apply? Is there an equal chance of getting the four different colors in a five-summon group or is it distributed based on the number of units in each category? (With higher chance for example of red showing up in a summoning block than, say, green?) And if one could work out an overage or a percentage of the number of times that a color would appear in the summoning group, could one then use this to more or less predict, if dumping a set number of orbs in (say 100 orbs in one batch for example), what the probability would be of coming up with certain characters? Most of what I'm managing to accomplish with this is hurting my brain at this point, lol, but I'm wondering if anyone could either fill in some blanks or make corrections to where I'm making any wrong assumptions or guesswork on this.
  15. Thanks for some of the suggestions on this! And for some of the pointers relating to MC selection, that definitely helps point me in a few good new directions. I've started looking over these and over a few cards from the new set and I hoping I'll be able to pull something a little more effective off now. EDIT: Not as an MC but I'm definitely looking at Patty as an option for support as well. The ability is risky and very conditional but looks like it could pack a lot of punch under the right circumstances.
