  1. Doesn't look like there was any outcry for Todd after the DLC, either. Metodey's a small role no one really remembers (even in the context of the DLC), so I doubt that would spark as much outcry as Niosi did being one of the main characters. I wish this could get brought to light again, but sadly it'd be tough. Best chance I could think of is Todd plays a big role in a popular game series, and even then that'd be awkward for said series since not only would they get embroiled in controversy, but it could also stir up Vic's fans again due to their overlap with supporting Todd, and those fans are NOT a pretty bunch with their track record of harassing accusers.
  2. Honestly, I propose we make a general sports thread instead of an NFL thread. Any other attempts at making a thread for other sports have just resulted in an inactive topic, so may as well put 'em all together so there's more incentive to bring up other sports.
  3. Hmm, seems like Fiora's supports are taking a page out of her support with Kent with how she's trying to moderate everyone. :Y Wonder how this will end... Also, poor freaking Matthew.
  4. Hmm... Ike and Roy used their dad's weapons while Lyn got one of Binding Blade's 8 weapons and Lucina got a brand new lance from a world foreign to her. Hector uses one of the 8 Elibe weapons, Celica uses one of Alm's swords, Ephraim uses a relic he learned about but never can use in his game, and Veronica never wielded a staff before her brave self was added. Micaiah's weapon doesn't even physically exist and is just magical power, Eliwood's lance is a new weapon that's not in any of the Elibe games, Camilla uses a staff not in her home game...I guess Alm's "Dracofalchion" is the closest thing to using his own weapon though it's not its original form. Since I see the legendary/time-skip versions of the TH lords using their relics, I'd say it's a safe bet they're gonna use weapons not specifically for them as opposed to "Burning Failnaught" or something. Probably more original weapons, and I have no clue what Lysithea could wield.
  5. If it's not unrealistic, I don't care much for cognitive dissonance in regards to voice. I understand the voice doesn't serve a purpose in-game outside of defining the character, but if we're going to have most of the young adult women in FE history have the same typical young adult woman voice, I don't mind a curveball once in a while. At least, coming from someone who's seen other LGBT+ communities and having gotten used to voices and identities not being the "expected". Isn't the voice acting handled by Cup of Tea Productions (a recording studio) while another company handles localization? CoT did the voice acting for Three Houses from what I read of the VA's tweets.
  6. And that's how some people are in real life as well, whether naturally or after getting voice training for whatever their reason is. As a cisgender guy myself who's never transitioned to a woman or non-binary, I've had a few instances in life where without looking at me and on voice alone I've been mistaken for a woman since my voice comes off lighter or younger, and I've never had voice training nor do I feel like bothering with that or any discomfort with my voice. My hot take is that putting expectations on what a person's voice should be in 2020 should be something folks should try to break the habit on and accept the unexpected voices. People will sound lighter/deeper/older/younger than they look in life, and if that's the direction they're taking Fiora with this voice direction, then I'm all for it.
  7. Oh, snap, Leila! Guess Matthew's finally getting that reunion since he showed up at launch. :P. Also, Heath's the free unit, it seems. Eh, personally, it's grown on me, especially since people in real life can sound different from how they look, and we probably shouldn't be slapping expectations of voices based on looks. I accept deep voice Fiora.
  8. Not everyone bothers to leave a like/dislike on the trailers, if they're even aware of them or bother to watch them. No matter how loud it is, the vocal minority is what it is; a minority. People who don't talk about Heroes (or anything on the internet) aren't necessarily NOT playing Heroes, so there's a BUNCH of people whose opinions are not accounted for just because they aren't sharing said opinions. And like it or not, fanservice sells; that's sorta how Awakening and Fates sold more than SoV by themselves due to the romance options, and probably a decent contributor in TH's success. Plus, even when if we factor in dislikes, look at any video involving Awakening or Fates that isn't Hot Springs or the legendary Azura or Lucina. Those like the Awakening kids and Fates Nohr banner haven't been even close to being overtaken by dislikes. This is even factoring in Year 1 and 2's banners that specifically had only Awakening and/or Fates content.
  9. My guess is someone within Nintendo that's part of the mobile team is pushing for subscription services. Mario Kart Tour got it, Animal Crossing got it added, and now FEH.
  10. Yeah, add me to the "not cool about the FEH pass being a thing" group. At least the units we know are involved aren't necessarily game-breakers, but this still is a sour predatory taste after what happened with Mario Kart Tour having a subscription service that heavily had a "pay to win" impact (and even then, it was cheaper than FEH's). At the very least, we can just hear the voice clips on YT, but this is quite the hole the devs dug themselves into (or whoever responsible for it, for all we know IS was forced too with the recent trend of Nintendo mobile subscription services). I'll at least drop my feedback and hope they listen. Greil was in last year's banner, and the others in that banner acknowledged him as someone supposed to be dead. I don't think FEH cares much for continuity when both normal and soul-sold Berkut exist. 😛
  11. Honestly, another reason why I think the runner-up banners should stay is because it gives incentive to vote for others not in the game yet over just CYL contenders. It was part of the charm (intentional or not) to increase another character's odds of getting in, and I don't think one reported instance of bot activity for one character would have spoiled that for everyone. But with no runner up banner this year, that charm was gone.
  12. There is some (citation needed) alarms ringing with that "bots were used" claim. Got any proof? And in any case, the runner-up banner is good because it allows control to help put wanted units in the banner. IS is very much unpredictable with how they do banners, so I imagine some control would be nice. One "disappointing runner up banner" isn't the end of the world in the (unlikely) scenario all four units are disappointing.
  13. Wait, Lysithea's in 2nd? Never mind, then; time to surpass expectations and get her a CYL appearance! It'd be pretty interesting if we got someone not in the game yet as a brave unit (save for the possibility of her being introduced before the banner like Ike was).
  14. Gave adult Tiki a vote, but I might change to Marth in an effort to give him a win.
  15. Sadly, I'd say Dixie's chances seem to be minimal with how many spirits are already in from games she's been in to the point that there's not really much justification for a spirit board. Sakurai mentioned that all DLC characters from the 2nd fighters pass would also get a stage, music and spirits, and DKC seems pretty loaded on spirits.
  16. By the way, apparently the 2nd fighter pass is also gonna have a new stage, music and spirits like the first pass, so judging by that, I don't think any character with so many spirits already in the game associated with them will get in. Rex has a chance since there's not too many Xeno 2 spirits, but characters like Dixie seem unlikely.
  17. The only remix is the FETH main theme in English and Japanese, and the other songs are original.
  18. Seeing Sharena mention modern conveniences like TV and entertainment agencies makes me feel sorta amused inside, considering she's from a world where the word "skyscraper" is foreign to her time. 😛
  19. Chiefs might not make it if the Madden Curse strikes again, whether in the AFC Championship or the Super Bowl (if they get there). yes i am superstitious why do you ask
  20. And if you read what everyone else was saying, maybe it'll happen soon now, perhaps this year. But we all know how unpredictable IS is with banners, so it's just a case of "who knows". In any case, Koei and Atlus are not the same company, so just because they settled stuff with one company doesn't mean they can settle stuff with another, whatever the stuff they need to settle is. So there's your (possible) reason for its exclusion right now. For all we know, maybe they'll add Warriors units around its anniversary. I know you've been often frustrated by banners not having characters you want, but honestly, just be content you have more insurance on getting a new character you actually do want, whoever they are and whenever they come up. Focusing on "this isn't want I wanted" is just gonna make you more frustrated.
  21. Hey, it's people Kiran can relate to! You know, because Kiran's from the real world...and knows what Hollywood is...and stuff...okay, maybe Kiran's version of the real world doesn't have Mirages. (Or something; I never played TMS). But still! 😛 so when's joker getting into heroes Might skip this, but this does have interesting implications of modern characters existing in a medieval fantasy world getting involved, not to mention the genuine articles possibly meeting their Mirages. 😛 And is this the first time the characters have English VAs?
  22. This is a bit more of an unorthodox comparison, but several of FE's VAs have done Dungeons and Dragons campaigns/sessions in some way. Matt Mercer (Chrom, Ryoma, Azama, Shigure) runs a campaign on Critical Role, and his players consist of Travis Willingham (Ogma and the original Garon and Camus), the Emmy award-winning* Sam Riegel (Donnel, Stahl and Raigh, where he's credited as "Sam Regal"), Taliesin Jaffe (Bruno, Navarre and Cain, credited as "T. Axelrod"), Liam O'Brien (Inigo's original VA before getting recast), Laura Bailey (Lucina and Palla's original VAs before, again, getting recast), Marisha Ray (Oboro, Effie, Shanna and Mikoto), and Ashley Johnson (who has no roles in FE). Orion Acaba (Gerome) also used to be part of CR, but left due to some of his issues which I won't get into. Kaiji Tang (Owain, Narcian, Lloyd) also has a couple of shows under his belt. Cristina Vee (Lachesis, Athena as "Cristina Valenzuela") has shown up on both shows, and Amanda Miller (Elincia and Sully) and Erin Fitzgerald (Sanaki and Olwen's old VA, also voiced Emmeryn) have shown up as guests. Erika Ishii (Loki) also showed up as a guest in a since-defunct D&D show before being cast in Heroes.
  23. @Anacybele"Two injuries sustained in one game?! Lost cause, cut him!" Give me a break. You saw how brutal that hit was on Juju. Cutting him is a bad idea now like it was any time during this season. He's a great WR who needs help. And nice whataboutism trying to direct attention to Raven when it's not even relevant to the point I was making in that paragraph. We're not talking about that incident, like I said. Back to the matter of hand, "fuck up" usually means "To destroy or severely damage something", and your wording very blatantly sounds like a threat to Lamar. Don't tell me you've never heard that as a physical threat to someone else when used like that. Choose your words wisely; research their implications.
  24. @AnacybeleFirst off, this is the first time Juju's been injured, and he had a nasty hit in the first place. You want fragile, out-of-shape Ben back (and no I don't believe him when he says he'll be ready), but want to cut the Steelers' best WR (and a very solid RB to a lesser extent) on the basis of "cut em they're injured for too long" after their big hits and some small accident? Hot takes, but not good takes. Second, the fact that you want T.J. to "fuck up" Lamar Jackson just goes to show either you don't know how to word things appropriately or you have some really violent ideas, and I hope it's the former. And for everyone, can we please be more mindful and civil with our criticism of people, players, etc. in the future? I get "that incident" was a serious issue and I have my opinions on it, but acting obnoxious isn't gonna help more than it will scare people away. I'll leave it at that and say nothing more. If you don't agree, then whatever, I'll go too. 😕
