  1. aw shit it's niime and canas and redhead canas and a bunch of other less important cards
  2. I think it represents how many cards Awakening and Fates have.
  3. i spent my morning watching japanese people eat fruit incorrectly and all i got were these lousy fates sets S15 looks interesting besides Fates but I don't think it's physically possible for me to be more disinterested in the loadout for S14. Don't really care about Tellius and basically everyone who matters from the 3DS games already has a card. I'm not sure why they bothered with secrecy.
  4. New Legendary Hero: Lyn, Lady of the Wind

    If we exclude Tempest Trial and Grand Hero Battle characters, this is equivalent to roughly eight banners' worth of character releases at the current pace. I am pretty sure that most people would consider having eight banners effectively ripped out of the calendar to be significant. If we assume each banner has the aforementioned two free characters attached to it, it is only four banners; however, inevitably, two of these characters are underwhelming as anything other than fodder due to being free and the third is likely to be demonstrably weaker thanks to being the 4*-5* demotion, leaving only a quarter of those characters to be thankful for their inclusion in our World of Alts. Have you considered the possibility that many of these people are usually trying to appeal to the emotions of people who like these semi-popular characters, and not necessarily doing it for the sake of the semi-popular characters themselves? I personally have little serious investment in characters like (for example) Flora or Maribelle relative to any other absent character, but because these are popular characters from games that the developers know the fanbase is aware of and are capable of making money, they are logical fanbases to appeal to when trying to reach out to other people for support. Furthermore, even if these people are motivated by selfish interests, what does it really matter? The vast majority of people I have seen defending alts are usually the sort of people whose favorite character already has upwards of three of them in the first place, like Chrom or Lucina. What makes the opinion belonging to these people morally sound when their opposition is apparently selfish, if both groups would like to be appealed to at the expense of the other, one has received multiple offerings, and one has been completely ignored and has only increasingly less to look forward to as time moves on? We have seasonal banners for alts and new hero banners for new characters. This, as it was, was a fair balance. But now we don't even have that: we have seasonal banners, legendary banners, brave hero banners, and new hero banners for alts, and the scraps of new hero banners for new characters (with a few rejects handed out for free via events, killing their stats and potential for the sake of at least getting them into the game.) How much more can you possibly defend them for taking from the people who still wish to see new heroes?
  5. I wonder what sort of person one would have to be to actively take joy in other players realizing that the odds of their favorite character ever getting into the game is very rapidly decreasing to zero. Not a remotely good one, certainly.
  6. FE Gaiden Leon

    This section of an interview might or might not be relevant. The impression I get his that his personality -- which in this case is also his sexuality, for better or for worse -- may likely have been inspired by his rather beautiful portrait for a male Famicom character, rather than any dialogue in the original game. And things snowballed from there. No intended agenda. No intended offense. No intended pandering. Just a flat-out "he looks gay lol, let's work with that".
  7. I always liked to humorously imagine this was the case for Gaiden, but then Echoes made Lukas and Forsyth into actual Christmas soldiers, so It's definitely not the intent, but it kinda works out that way so it was easy enough for me to have fun with it.
  8. Was the Fire Dragon supposed to move?

    Duma is also able to move in FE2, for whatever little value that has.
  9. According to... who? It sounds to me like you're attempting to make excuses. The reason no Fallen Heroes dropped is because: Armor teams are a premium team that they would like to be effectively exclusive to whales if possible. Celica is a popular character that they know that people will shell out money for, especially as a 'dark' variant. Bloating the 5* pool is a positive for them, not a negative, because it makes Legendary Banners more appealing. Anybody who would quit over a lack of 4* demotions on individual banners likely already has, or at the very least, should have seen the writing on the wall with the anniversary.
  10. is it just me or do leif and nanna almost look like falcom characters leif looks like he'd fit right in as a gagharv character, possibly even an older ys title, while nanna's only a little tinting away from fitting right in with trails
  11. New Heroes: Those who Have fallen

    And, I believe, never prior to that, if you consider Rhajat to be part of her respective banners (as she was likely separated for economic reasons rather than for thematic reasons) and combine Alm/Celica's armies (which had three males and three females split among two banners.) Yet even then, World of Dawn was out of obligation: Micaiah and Sothe were both mandatory, and Meg can't appease their armor fetish (or degrade the Black Knight) in the way Zelgius can. This is the first time where it feels like they actually could've avoided a majority-male banner and chose not to. Kudos to them for not pandering to shallow audiences for once.
  12. So what role is Neve/Nieve/Naimh supposed to serve, exactly? Seems to be just a sword lady so far, and I already understand that to be Yuzu's "role" among the Cipher mascots. I guess she looks a little bit more sinister, but...
  13. Seasonal banner: Love Abounds

    groom raven x bride lucius do this for me and i start playing again, devs though at this point i'm half expecting it to just be lon'qu with his hair done nicely for a formal occasion or something
  14. Rally For Marth To Join the CYL2 Winners

    And every character from Archanea is from FE3 or FE12 except Wrys. Even Athena. So. But the biggest factor is probably just that Mystery of the Emblem is the more popular game in Japan. There's your vote difference right there: the people who have the greatest reason to care about Marth prefer what is in this situation the wrong game. Give or take a few thousand people who don't rigorously check which Marth fared better last time, or simply don't care, and there you go.
  15. I mean I got more mileage out of those two than their legendary weapons in their respective games anyway tbf. Effective damage is fun for the whole family, and I can only imagine that that's even more true in Heroes where monsters aren't a thing but Cavalry and Armor units certainly are.
