  1. Fate/Grand Order USA

    IIRC, there's always been maintenance right before a new banner, at least for NA version. I always check beforehand anyways, but it's been consistent so far. Lancer Vlad is from Extra. Zerker Vlad is a version of Apocrypha Lancer of Black that embraces his vampiric legend instead of rejecting it. I'm not sure why Fate got such a different Vlad than Apocrypha. Edit: Apparently, Lancer of Black is how Wallachians see Vlad, while Extra Vlad is is how the rest of the world sees him. Since the black team in Apocrypha is based in Wallachia/Romania, it makes some sense that they'd see him as a hero, rather than a villain.
  2. Fate/Grand Order USA

    Isn't there maintenance tonight? So you won't be able to roll until that's done. And time zone doesn't matter anyways, as everything happens at the same time for all NA (I'm in PST, and login bonus resets for me at 8pm, 9pm during DST).
  3. Your Thoughts on Seasonal Heroes

    For it to really work, they need to be willing to demote more heroes down, especially to 3*. I know more or less why they don't, but they really do need to look at the hero pool at some point. The 3 and 4 rate switch just masked the problem, and they've started demoting fewer heroes from the new hero banners, which doesn't help either.
  4. Your Thoughts on Seasonal Heroes

    Overall I think seasonals are fine as a method for having 'limited time' units. Especially when the alternative for generating hype is making standard units limited (imagine Ike as a limited banner unit that is brought back periodically, similar to Gilgamesh in FGO). At least with seasonals, it's usually not the only way you get that character (barring a few exceptions). FWIW, they might have had plans for most of the seasonal units we've had so far before CYL results were available (see Christmas Tharja and Robin). We don't know how far in advance units are planned.
  5. Artwork and Sketches of the Book II Characters

    Holyn is pretty close to the transliteration of Chulainn though. Cu Chulainn is sometimes called Cuhullin in English stuff, most likely due to mishearing the pronunciation. That said, as it is missing the 'Cu' at the start and he doesn't use a spear, if it was a reference to Celtic myth, it's more likely to be a reference Culann, the smith whose dog was killed by Cu Chulainn while he was still Setanta, rather than Cu himself. Edit: Quan/Cuan also isn't as clear cut as you think. He's married to Ethlyn, who's name is close to a reference to Ethniu/Ethliu, the mother of Lugh and the wife of Cian. Lugh is generally given to be Cu Chulainn's father, which makes the connection to Gae Bolg for FE purposes. It could also be a contraction of Cu Chulainn, but Cian is pronounced fairly close to Quan/Cuan (Cian is pronounce 'kii an' as far as I can find).

    Chulainn is Irish mythology, not Norse. That said, it's pronounced extremely similarly to Holyn, so it's not that much of a stretch to go from one to the other.
  7. Artwork and Sketches of the Book II Characters

    This is the JP name though, not the localized name, AFAIK, since it comes from the sketches. And it fits with the other Norse inspired names, so even if it's kept it's not out of place.

  9. Tempest Trials: Less than Heroic!

    Julia was on the header for the last Tempest though, and she wasn't a bonus unit. So him being on the banner doesn't mean he will be a bonus. Edit: For overall reference, the banners have had Veronica, Alm, Celica, Hector, Black Knight, and Julia. 2 non-bonus, 3 40%, and 1 20%. So the banner unit can be anything.

    Brave weapons don't really need the upgrade though, and just the addition of stats to other inheritable weapons doesn't make them superior to Braves. A Brave Weapon still doubles your damage, while at least from what we've seen inheritable weapons only get stat boosts (which won't come close to increasing output as much as a Brave usually will). It remains to be seen whether this will affect Arena score, but in terms of PVE content, and generally in Arena (ignoring score), Braves won't be anywhere close to outclassed. The only weapons that appear to be able to get new skills are all PRFs, since they showcased that using Seigmund.

    They weren't on the list, so we should probably assume they can't be. But we won't know for certain until the update actually drops. The Askr weapons not being on the list of upgradable weapons is sort of odd though. Her outfit is closer to her Myrmidon outfit from PoR though, given that she's wearing shoulder-guards (which she loses as a Swordmaster in both PoR and RD).

    The right concept art in that picture is the closest you're going to get. She doesn't take the cloak off in game.
