  1. Was waiting all this time for Felix to get released before making another update, but it seems that will take even longer, so here we go: So 38 new 5*s between now and September (not counting the ones I got and foddered inbetween)
  2. Disappointed to be waiting even longer for Felix, but it is what it is. If he had debuted on this banner, he would have colour shared with Lysithea anyway, so it's probably for the better. My biggest fear is they'll make him a shitty GHB unit, like they have done to popular males in the past. Still got Solon to check off for White Cloud villains, so I'll keep my fingers crossed. Anyway, I am contractually obligated to try for Anette, as she is one of the cubs. Lysithea is also one of my most frequent recruits, so I want her as well. I however do not want to go below 200 orbs in my orb stash in case they pull a fast one and the next 3H banner is in early April or something. Poor Ferdinand. I am not the guy's biggest fan, but it's obvious he got screwed over.
  3. This is a win-win for me. If Altina wins I get a great unit, if Sothis wins I grt Time's pulse. Best possible outcomes to me so far.
  4. If Altina doesn't win the gauntlet, I'm gonna have to pull for her here, but I already have L!Roy, so this isn't appealing. Bonus doubler could be nice I guess, but it's not what I am aiming for. As for the Mythic, if it is indeed , that'd be another place to invest orbs. Colourless would seem likely and I ain't too hot on merging my Frima further. So yeah, not exactly an ideal banner for me either way.
  5. I'll support Altina, though it makes me feel a bit bad, since I like C!Sothis a lot. I just don't need another copy of her. It'll be interesting to see how much support Leif gets just to prevent Edelgard.
  6. Hm, I am pretty nervous about the coming VG. There's gonna be so much salt, we'll be talking about it in the same breath as that horrible CYL1 VG disaster I am sure. As for my thoughts on the potential winners: Altina: My number one pick. I wanted her back when she first came out, but was short on orbs and did not want to jump into red hell too much. Tried a little and got Sothis. I would really appreciate not to have to fish her out of those godawful mythic banners. Only downside to her winning would be her increased presence in AR, where she is already toxic enough. But oh well, I'll just have to 'git good' and start using my Duo!Ephraim properly I suppose. Alfonse: Not much for Blue Tomes, since I have dozens already, even if he is amazing. That fodder is pretty delicious though. But if I wanted to potentially feed Special Spiral to Felix once he gets into the game, it'd mean wasting CC fodder. Hm, I'd have to wait and see, but I can't deny Alfonse's appeal. Sothis (red): Like I said, already have her. Still some really neat fodder to be had here, so I am not opposed to getting her. Leif: Pretty amazing unit, but not too great with fodder. I am not sure how much I'd use him, but I wouldn't be too mad. Sothis (green): Another merge for her would be nice, although not really necessary. I don't have many armours to built up, but she could be helpful there too. Azura: Ugh, please no. I already have a good copy, with no interest in merging. Her fodder isn't too good and we already have Peony who is nearly just as good. Alm: Not a unit I'd use but good fodder. Edelgard: Her C-skill isn't too bad, but hardly worth losing the chance at one of the above guys (minus Azura. I think I'd actually prefer Edelgard over her, purely as fodder). I don't want her winning, but we'll see how things play out. So yeah, I'll be supporting Altina mostly out of self-interest. *shrugs*
  7. Aww guess I did. I am happy you got such a nice copy. Congrats! I actually did get a Takumi on my free summon. It's the second one I pulled (excluding the free copy) since I started playing. Don't thin I'll ever +10 him, but those extra stats are still neat.~
  8. Edelgard, but that's a powder keg of a conversation I don't feel like touching today. Sylvain for.most of the reasons losted above. But I actually like that the game tried to address the misogynistic attitudes of the flirt type characters and made Sylvain very obviously display one of the darl sides of it. My problem is that the game doesn't give him a proper realisation on it and simply acts like he suddenly got his shit together one day because he found a girl to settle down with, so it's all fine. There's only really one line in his Byleth support that hints at him maybe forming some kind of understanding, and his suppports with Mercedes get off to a good start but then completely miss the landing when it all turns back around to him and his pain instead of the pain he causes. Compare this to Lorenz, who has aj extensive character arc with all of his supports about realizing what a tool he was and the game never feels the urge to coddle him or treat him like he's got it worse than everyone else, despite those girls he flirts with likely having just as bad of a time with crests as he has. (or living the lifes of commoners, where nobles playing around with them is just another reminder of where they rank in society) Also just saying, even if one if those girls had been a materialistic shrew, Sylvain approaching and actively egging her on with the sole intent of humiliating her does not make me feel a shred of sympathy for him. At the end of the day, I still want to like Sylvain, and there are things I enjoy about him (his interactions with his friends for example, outside of flirting with Ingrid, of course, amd his occasional shows of scary amounts of competence), I just wish the game had properly finished the arc it set up for him, like with Lorenz. Anyway, another one I don't like would be Bernadetta. On the surface, people would assume I'd completely love her as a character, for also having issues with anxiety. However, I heavily dislike how these are treated as a source for jokes 95% of the time. Bernadetta is treated like a joke character and you can almost hear the game shouting "Look at how whacky she is, isn't it just totally adorbs!!?" Don't get me wrong, I can enjoy comedy at my expense. I really love the manga/anime Watamote for instance, but the difference is that the author was poking fun at their own similar behaviour, a cringe comedy for laughing at and understanding your own ridiculousness. Bernadetta feels like a walking punchline from people with little understanding of the topic. And then we are meant to really sympathize when she makes moe eyes and explains her backstory to you, which is hard, when all the game did before was point a finger at her and tell us to laugh. Honestly this frustrates me a lot and my opinion of the character is very low as a result.
  9. Lost all three rounds. Figures, that this would happen in the one VG I cared about (even if only slightly)
  10. I am just going to go with what I want, since I assume Intsys will give everyone their academy looks and war alts only to the more popular ones. Ferdinand - He looks like a greek god during war phase. The mane also fits with his disney prince image. Linhardt - I prefer academy, but war looks nice too. Caspar - War phase is the only design of his I can take seriously. Bernadetta - I don't really like her either way, but her academy self looks like a scruffy kitten, so it wins. Dorothea - I really love both versions, but war wins out on maturity. Dedue - War, since his hair in academy phase is atrocious. He looks very handsome to me after the timeskip. Felix - War. Just not too much of a bun fan (unless it's double buns). Also his war phase outfit has Thigh High Boots, so it wins by default. Ashe - War. I like how he looks gentle yet more mature. Sylvain - War, although I think his Academy self has better hair. The outfit just looks better on him. Annette - Academy is cuter. Something about her war phase hair just looks off, but maybe a different artstyle could change that. Ingrid - Academy. I love her long hair and think it's such a shame it gets reduced. Lorenz - War phase. He looks so much better there. Even with his personality, I'll have a hard time pulling for academy!Lorenz cause I am shallow as heck in gacha games. Raphael - Academy I guess. I am not terribly fond of him in either incarnation, but his hair in war phase just puts me off. Ignatz - War phase. Looking like a real scholar type in that one. Lysithea - Hope to see her in her war phase look someday. Marianne - I prefer academy, due to the very scary looks she can pull off in that one. Leonie - War phase appeals to me much more. I just love her hair there. Cyril - Not too invested, but War, I guess.
  11. Seperating into my top 10 from 3 Houses (cause they are the freshest in my mind): 1. Felix (Sword Infantry) 2. Dorothea (Red Tome Infantry) 3. Rhea (Blue Dragon Infantry) 4. Dedue (Axe Infantry) 5. Lysithea (Red Tome Infantry) 6. Sylvain (Lance Cavalier) 7. Ingrid (Lance Flier) 9. Seteth (Lance Flier) 10. Leonie (Red Bow Cavalry) ... And my top 10 from the other games: 1. Mitama (Staff Infantry) 2. Luthier (Blue Infantry Tome) 3. Rafiel (Green Beast Dancer Infantry) 4. Forrest (Staff Cavalry) 5. Orochi (Red Tome Infantry) 6. Skrimir (Red Beast Armor) 7. Ena (Red Dragon Infantry) 8. Calill (Blue Tome Infantry) 9. Volke (Colourless Dagger Infantry) 10. Laurent (Green Tome Infantry)
  12. Voting for Altina, since she is the only Legendary/Mythic I still want to get. Would personally be disappointed if the winner ends up someone I already have unless they have amazing fodder.
  13. Got everyone except Caineghis and NY!Lethe, so I am pretty save when it comes to Bonus units. Gonna start eith Tibarn. If he loses again it'll be Naesala and I'll just go from there.
  14. My linked ballot is predictable: On one of my campus' computers I chose to give votes to Dimitri, Rhea and Takumi
  15. Oh man I got Nailah as my free summon. I've been wanting her for a year now, so this should be a happy occasion but... Her B-skill would do so much to make AR easier on me. My Picnic!Leo could use it to eat all those pesky Veronicas alive with his Raven Tome. I've been really looking forward to doing all that. Problem is that I also want Nailah for herself and this copy just happens to have great IVs (+Atk -HP). Foddering her would be quite a shame. I even tried pulling another copy, but 70 orbs had me pity broken by Tibarn (goodbye Def bane at least). Can't afford to spend anything more, so I am now at a loss as to what to do. Doing either feels like a waste tbh. So yeah, I am not happy.. just conflicted.
  16. Yeah, it'd actually feel pretty uncomfortable to me. If we get anyone from 3H on a fallen banner it'll probably be Hegemon!Edelgard. It's not possession, but the monstrous transformation didn't seem to help with her mentality.
  17. Again, Felix mostly doesn't bother anyone unless spoken to. A girl could go her entire school career without talking to Felix, but she cannot avoid Sylvain bothering her/drawing her into a relationship only to drop her like a hot potato. Also baggage doesn't justify anything, only explain. Especially when these girls don't have anything to do with his parents or brother. And he is the one approaching them, so Sylvain calling them out on "going after him" for his crest holds no water. Most of these girls are likely in a similar place that he is, having huge pressure on their shoulders to marry well and being objectified. Heck, Ingrid is in fact in the very same situation and you don't see her going around messing with guys and calling them superficial, despite actually being treated horribly by at least one of her suitors. I could mention all the things in Felix's backstory that made him the way he is, but I am not going to pretend it justifies anything. You are entitled to your own opinion, but I think I explained very well why people do not take as much issues with him than they do with Sylvain. Have a nice day.
  18. I never said it did, just that I don't qualify what Felix does as harassment. My original point was that most people would take more issue with someone who actively goes after them vs. someone they have to approach themselves to set off and would otherwise completely ignore them. Also Felix isn't actively mean to every person that speaks to him, see his supports with Annette and Bernadetta. While no big self-flagellation, Felix does go out of his way to apologize to Sylvain for going overboard. He's quickly set off again, but the point is that he is capable of realizing he went too far and honestly apologizes. He does go off again quickly, but that's mostly just comedic banter (with Sylvain clearly not taking any offense).
  19. I meant that most of the time he doesn't actively hunt down people simply to dress them down. He does with Dedue and in Dimitri's B support, but 90% of the time it's the other person that approaches him first and he reacts to them. And with Mercedes, she did in fact approach him first and then treats him like a kid brother, something Felix is very sensitive to due to his past and really doesn't like. It was his right to reject her, though he should have definitely been nicer about it. Point is, having a shitty attitude when approached is not harassment.
  20. Felix does get called out by Ingrid and plenty of people do not take kindly to the things he says. Dedue is fairly indifferent to getting insulted himself, but once Dimitri gets mentioned we see him actually get very angry at Felix. His reputation is also such that even characters he is nothing but friendly, or at least neutral, to immediately assume he has it out for them (Annette and Bernadetta, also partially Lysithea since she assumed he'd mock her for liking sweets when he didn't really care). Part of the reason is also probably that he almost never approaches anyone himself just to insult them. Outside of his B support with Dimitri he just keeps to himself and is blunt/rude to anyone who happens to annoy him when they get close. It's not a commendable attitude at all, but he isn't harassing anyone, while Sylvain actively seeks out girls to fool around with. Also another reason is that a lot of the time Felix shows that he does care for others and is simply shit at expressing it. Most of the characters are aware that his bark is worse than his bite and therefore don't take it too seriously.
  21. I am happy Felix is so high, though I was hoping he'd be a little higher. I'm gonna keep on voting for him regardless, so he hopefully stays where he is or maybe rises higher. Also happy for Dimitri in 1st place and Rhea making it into the top 20 despite the hostility. She really deserves it. Glad to see Lysithea and Dorothea's current placing. The next Brave freebe might be a tough choice between Dimitri and Lysithea (leaning towards Dimitri amd then pulling for Lysithea) Despite Fates drop in popularity, Takumi is still in the top 20s, which proves that he's got a lot of staying power despite not being a Lord.
  22. I also asssume this isn't just for the benefit of the Brave alts, but the alt selection in general. So if War!Dimitri is more popular, we are probably also more likely to see swimsuit/christmas/whatever alts of that version.
