  1. Oh, yeah, that one is weird. They seem to have stopped adding those refinements entirely by now. I was hoping they'd use 3.0 to catch up, but nope.
  2. Because Berserk was the first one. Flame Siegmund already has a refinement, so being legendary does not seem to be the reason for Thunder Armads not being available, just that it was the second one added.
  3. All such refiements were a while later. Also, only Berserk Armads can be refined into, not Thunder Armads, so Festive Siegmund seems unlikely.
  4. My definition of f2p-friendly is "doesn't require sacrificing any 5* exclusives". With maybe the exception of like. Swift Sparrow, which is now on twelve units.
  5. I've gotten consistent A/A with Winter Tharja, Valentine's Eliwood, Surtr, and Halloween Henry.
  6. Aether Raids General Thread

    Once you get to high enough levels, you don't play a lot. About twice per day, generally.
  7. Light Blessings override regular blessings, if that's what you're asking.
  8. Aether Raids General Thread

    Lost both of today's battles, still got around rank 2100 and solidly in Tier 18. Which is where I should expect to stay this week, I guess.
  9. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    It's actually closer than that. There's both Berserk Armads and Thunder Armads, but only the first one is available for refinement from the basic one.
  10. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    Loki's votes were probably in large part because of her not having any playable version, and now she has one. So her chances should go down correspondingly as well. Looking at top CYL2 characters and how their version numbers have changed since then: 5. Marth: 1 > 3 6. Camilla: 3 > 5 7. Eirika: 2 > 4 (or 1 > 4, counting from when the vote started) 8. Azura: 3 > 4 9. Alm: 1 (no change) 10. Loki: 0 > 1 11. Reinhardt: 1 > 2 12. Nino: 1 > 2 13. Micaiah: 1 > 2 14. Corrin (F): 2 > 3 15. Chrom: 3 > 4 16. Tharja: 2 > 3 17. Robin (M): 2 > ...does Grima count as a third? 18. Takumi: 2 > 4 19. Cordelia: 2 > 3 20. Leif: 0 > 1 So everyone except Alm and arguably Robin (M) got at least one more version, with Marth, Camilla, Eirika, and Takumi each getting multiple. Eirika is the only character to get three new versions since the start of CYL2.
  11. Tempest Trial+ : Life is But Fleeting (Dec 18th)

    I'm surprised and rather disappointed that we're getting a water blessing for this TT, rather than a light one. I hope the new blessings aren't too hard to get.

    Even if they did, they'd get the armchair developers now coming up with ways they think the process could be streamlined and complaining that they aren't doing that, despite their ideas not actually working for one reason or another.
  13. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    You might think certain statements would make you personally more satisfied, but it doesn't necessarily go for players as a whole. Explaining some things can lead to all sorts of other complaints from people who think they know how it could be done better, as we saw from the deluge of complaints over the FE6/10 banner announcement from people who wanted those banners.
  14. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    There are two assumptions here: production time wasn't even slower in the past, and there's actually a viable way to meaningfully speed up production time. I don't see any reason to believe either. Making games is a slow process. "We move slow because we don't want to pay more staff" isn't the sort of thing companies say in their announcements, true or not. They've made it clear that this is the speed Heroes moves, and it's a fine speed. There are issues with the things they're choosing to make, but the time they're taking to make them and their unwillingness to hand out every internal detail you personally want are not reasonable complaints.
  15. Tempest Trial+ : Life is But Fleeting (Dec 18th)

    I have Tharja and Robin, and I'm planning on going for Eirika, so I'm fine with these bonus units.
  16. All my votes were for Osian, so I'm 0 for 1.
  17. I thought it was funny in a trailer, but it was so weird starting up Book 3 and having it play "ingame".

  19. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    It isn't, but apparently a lot of people think it is. They made an arena where BST doesn't matter, but somehow it's ended up getting a lot of complaints. Maybe people need to get better at fighting armors. My armors always seem to have an easy time doing it!
  20. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    No, see, it's always terrible for them to add any armors, even on the banner where everyone was expecting it more than any other because its history is being 100% armors.
  21. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    Armored healer at last! I'm definitely pulling for Eirika, and a free Cecilia is also nice. And hey, it's all characters who've never gotten seasonals before! The last time that happened was... spring, I think? Aside from gender balance, this is everything I could ask for out of a seasonal banner.
  22. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    Trailers most often go up 28 hours in advance, but they sometimes do 52 hours instead, and I think that's been increasingly common recently. Looking back at the most recent trailers: Legendary Heroes - Hrid: 52 hours Fire and Ice: 28 hours Adrift: 52 hours Legendary Heroes - Eirika: 28 hours So 52 hours seems just as plausible as 28 right now. I think it's a lot less likely for the trailer to be 48 hours after the silhouettes: in fact, I'm not sure that's ever happened.
  23. Special Heroes (Gifts of Winter)

    Silhouettes are generally 24 hours before the trailer, so this trailer will probably go up in about 8 hours from the time I'm posting this.
  24. Feh Channel on the 10th 3pm PT

    Bear in mind that Veronica was because of CYL. She'll presumably get a regular version at some point, but she and Bruno are bigger-picture than the Book 2 OCs.
  25. At least now we should be done with rerun TT characters, with Heroic Grails being a thing.
