  1. It will be quicker to finish the map than it will be to play the past ~28 chapters through again and buy more javelins.
  2. There is no algorithm, but shaming someone and calling them an intrinsically terrible person Unless they repent and convert to your way of knowing and being is literally never going to work and literally always going to make you look like a cunt.
  3. The game's got better with time, this showing especially with the writing of newly added characters. There hasn't really been a dud mode added - I'd even argue that Relay Battles were a good concept, just too overtuned. They've since, of course, been replaced in spirit with Mjolnir Strike. Powercreep isn't a real thing. Numbers and skills have to get larger to avoid stagnation and productively explore new design space; do you really want to go back to the days where everyone ran either Fury/Desperation, Fury/QR or DC/QR?
  4. Byleth was basically perfect... and was a viewpoint character, not an avatar*. Which I'm entirely fine with, and benefited the game. Honestly I'm not even convinced they should've been able to be renamed, though, like, this is absolutely not my hill to die on. I wouldn't mind seeing them go a more RPG direction, if they lean into it more. Also wouldn't mind them removing avatars as a concept entirely; FE15 showed it was fine to just put a thing entirely from the lord's perspective even from the more 3D, just-behind-the-camera perspective. * Sure, you could pick Byleth's lines, but always from a very limited palette and emotional range. They have an established background, personality and deep, deep flaws.
  5. Yeah, I chased down the JP trailer myself. It is. Below the cut, for proof...
  6. I stand corrected and have some shouting to do at misinformers on SFcord. Or possibly at you. EDIT: Yes, at you.
  7. There'd be no point releasing Mark, save maybe as the backup in a Duo unit. But they have literally no personality, and are canonically a non-combatant. Hell, they (correctly) haven't even released Kris. Being the mirror for Bramimond is the only use for them. Reminder that this is a guy who can literally just be removed from the game without serious effect. Alfonse's, not Roy's.
  8. The fourth voice is either Alfonse or Mark. It's not Roy - not only does it make no sense, the JP VA is Alfonse's but not his.
  9. I pretty much always go female when the choice is offered. Byleth is no exception. Thematically, it doesn't make much difference; save I guess you could argue it's subversive for a female protagonist's main weakness to be that she isn't that good at nurturing, that she doesn't get people, that her sense of emotional intelligence is... fumbling, at best. I love Byleth a lot, okay.
  10. That's fine and fair, it wasn't targeted at you. Just a general pre-emptive warning so nobody has an excuse to complain past this point.
  11. This is a first and final warning: rejoice victory to your heart's content, but antis will be purged.
  12. VGs are mostly about the characters you like. Some of the characters I like are terrible units nobody actually wants more of in their barracks. The VG I still remember is when fucking Shanna somehow fluked her way to victory (and I'd backed her since the start!) - do you really think she'd get a single backer if there were actual stakes on the line? You're already incentivised plenty to participate for the massive feather bonanza, and picking a larger side likely to win is adequately counterbalanced by the ease of climbing the ranks of a smaller side. The current multiplier system is working well. It's a good vessel to give a free unit, it's a better system than last time (which still worked very well and was a nice thing, and I say this as someone who only got a Lawn merge out of it). But let's not remove what makes it special.
  13. you're a mod now? holy shit 

    how has adulthood been treating you old friend?
