  1. I feel the reason this banner was a midpoint was due to IS' expectations for it being low. Valentia, like Awakening, is at a point where its remaining cast is on the lower end of popularity aside from a couple and they probably didn't trust Tatiana or Luthier enough to carry the banner by themselves, so they made it a Midpoint banner and threw in Nott as a means to help carry it. As for why they weren't the 5* despite that, alongside Nott being used as a carry they also probably wanted Palla to be on there to serve a similar role to Catria on the previous Valentia banner as she was likely used as a carry there and Palla is popular enough to serve the same role. As a result, she was given the 5* treatment herself and with both her and Nott taking two of the dedicated 5* focus slots that left one other 5* slot, the 4* focus, and the freebie. Since Zeke was likely planned to debut alongside Tatiana he took the last 5* slot due to him being Camus and left Luthier and Tatiana with the remaining roles. It is unfortunate it shook out that way since they probably could've been 5* if they played to their popularity, but it's not the first time IS has done this and it won't be the last.
  2. That animation is incredible, I honestly want her just for that.
  3. The ones that have gone without a banner the longest is now Fates, SoV, and TMS. Of those I feel it's going to be SoV as after last year I also think they're going to do a midpoint banner since there's very few carries left for the game and there is a curiously vacant second spot for Blue on the June Legendary banner that Nott could fill. In terms of who will be on it, Nott, Luthier, Tatiana, and Zeke for the banner, Mycen for the off banner unit, Jedah for the GHB.
  4. For the Mythic, since it's Dark Colorless I'm thinking Medeus, Anankos, or Dheginsea. Medeus is the most obvious due to being a Shadow Dragon, but Dheginsea has a Dark Affinity in RD and Anankos could fit into the element as well. Loptous and Athos are also options, but I feel the former's overlap with Medeus will push him down the list and with the latter I feel he would have a different color due to being most associated with Forblaze and to differentiate him from Bramimond.
  5. Risen King Chrom Hegemon Edelgard Berserk Ninian Arete Nergal Those would be my best guesses, but honestly outside of Chrom I'm not certain on any of these. I wouldn't mind seeing something like this. With villains like Nergal, we know they used to be good people that fell due to different reasons, so giving them an alt that shows them at their best would be a good way to expand on their backstories and characters. It'd especially be the case for earlier villains like Medeus or Julius since the storytelling in the past was more limited for them.
  6. *sees Sonia is the next GHB* Alright Nino, it's time... Probably skipping this banner, while Pent is very enticing, AHR drained me and I need to start saving again.
  7. Well, back to the AHR banner it is. I like Dagr as she's kind of enjoyable, but she's not a character I'm pining for and I really don't like that Freyr is still MIA while they're already dipping into Book 5 OCs.
  8. I'm guessing the banners will be either SOV, Blazing Blade, or Fates (or TMS) since those have gone on the longest without one. At this point, I'm getting the feeling SOV will be used as a Midpoint banner like Awakening last year, so I'm guessing either Blazing Blade or Fates.
  9. Overall yes, their biggest criticism is how they're placed into a pre-existing story so they feel forced into the role of Marth's second half and often usurp lines and roles from other established characters. If they had a new cast to work with, there isn't that comparison to make between the original game and the remake and thus they'd lose that criticism. They would still get some complaints due to their personality, but their reception probably wouldn't be any worse then the other Avatars in that regard.
  10. I could see Freyr being Blue this month if he doubles up with Eitri. I understand the point of L!Lucina making the color less desirable, but having two new Mythics on the banner I feel would offset that. I feel they're about the same in that regard, but really all a Mythic really requires nowadays is a background worthy of legend, so Gotoh being a formidable opponent or not I don't think matters.
  11. For Archanea I'd also add Gotoh, he's similar to Athos in how he operates in the story so it makes sense that he would be a viable option as well. Also, if we're considering Dragon Seteth and Flayn, maybe we could also add Macuil and Indech since they have dragon forms we meet and statues of their human ones.
  12. Very surprised that Lynja won, but I was missing both and of the two she was the one I wanted most so this worked out very well for me. The only thing I could say is that with Seiros getting the win I could've focused exclusively on Colorless and avoid Blue, but at least this way it gives me an excuse to get more fodder.
  13. From the sound of it, the winners (and the characters on our future banner) are Seiros, Lynja, L!Dimitri, and L!F!Corrin. Only upset was Freyja, who was very close from my understanding so it was not that surprising. Really glad with that lineup overall since I get a character I didn't have or at least good fooder.
  14. No Claude, you were supposed to be Wind and come in April, how dare you scheme against me and my orbs so!? I'm really torn on this one. L!Claude looks great as he's a powerful player phase unit from what I can tell, and he color shares with L!Lief who I need a merge for, but with the AHR banner coming soon I don't want to part with too many orbs trying to get him. I may just spend enough to get a 5* and hope that I get lucky, but if not then I'll dip out.
