  1. I stan Millennials. Maybe it's because Boomers and the like always like to rag on Millennials, but I feel like, among Gen Z (I don't love "Zoomer"), Millennials are generally not disliked. I mean, what are we gonna do? Blame Millennials for the poor economic circumstances they were given? Can't relate. My Mom is a Millennial and my Dad is Gen-X for context. Also, yes, I do talk like this. Normally, I try to post here writing more tethered, but something about this question brought it out.
  2. One idea I always liked was splitting the massive maps from FE4 into smaller chapters while retaining the huge maps. Before I get ahead of myself, I'll elaborate. After each castle siege in FE4, there's typically some cutscenes to bridge parts of the chapter together and some new enemy deployments. The idea is, to break up these sections more clearly, breaking to save after each castle save, and then starting the next chapter right at that castle. Think that weird 4-part chapter from FE9, but, like, better. The idea is to maintain the grand scale of the FE4 maps while also making them easier for newcomers to digest. In between "chapters', the same cutscenes could play, and supports could also be added, because more character interactions is always good in FE. Uh, other changes could be made to make infantry units more viable on the large maps. Maybe just boost their move by like 1 (or 2)? Give more units pursuit? Or at least change accost (charge?) to function like in Thracia to add some interesting options other than pursuit. In general, add improvements concept-wise from Thracia back to FE4. Also, I'd prefer to keep FE4 and FE5 separate, simply because I think it would be better to maintain their individual styles, and by keeping them separate, they can focus an full game's attention on each one.
  3. The banner seems fine. The lack of a 3-4 star unit is the real bummer here. There's a bunch of boring kids that they could have thrown to be the 3-4 star unit. Oh well.
  4. If there's still slots available, I'd happily take that Knight Slot. Character Name: Fang Forum Name: Shimmerfang Class: Knight Affiliation: Protagonist Recruitment: Green unit. Talk with Rezzy to recruit. Main Appearance: Act 1, Chapter 5. 96 x 96 Face Portrait: Fang Portrait.bmpFang Portrait.bmp Other Notes: • Assets/Flaws: Asset Speed/Resistance; Flaw Defense • Character Personality: A generally well-intentioned and kind young man. Tends to find fault in himself before fault of others. • Story Blurb: Just travelling the world in an effort to find a home of his own.
  5. While the growth totals are all over the place, trying to judge unit balance in Birthright is kinda complaining about the temperature in a burning building. The units are kinda all over the place in quality, but it doesn't ultimately matter much in such an easy route like Birthright or the hot mess that is Revelation. Also, just comparing the growth disparities among the units is only looking at parts of the pictures. The units bases are just as important, as well as the system that they're in. Hana is not only bad cuz she's bad, but also bad cuz dodgetanking is harder to do in Fates. RInkah isn't great cuz you don't often need a tank in Birthright.
  6. I believe it is. If you check Sturn's chapter 8 video, they have their undrafted Zikark do what you describe. I believe Nailah does the same for them as well. It should be good. That's actually the chapter I'm currently on; I'm just having a hard time getting through it with only 3 combat units.
  7. Aww that's unfortunate. At least it seems that you'll do okay. I've been busy playing 3Hs and prepping for the start of my next semester in college, so I gotta do some moving. I'll come back to update in a hopefully soon enough.
  8. I feel like if there's going to be a poll, it should at least not be so blatantly in favor of one answer over another.
  9. After about 850 orbs, I was able to get my +10 Brave Micaiah.
  10. Blue Lions: Dimitri/Marianne - Was really sweet, and I feel like they can be there for each other. Felix/Ingrid - My OTP even pre game, and don't have more to say. Sylvain/Mercedes - Their ending and the conclusion of Sylvain's arc made me emotional. Ashe/Annette - Was cute, and had nice connection to Gilbert Dedue/Flayn - Weird, but I liked it. Ferdinand/Dorothea - A hot mess couple, but I really like it. Bylass/Seteth - Seteth has stolen my heart lol.
  11. This week has caused my anticipation to nearly boil over. At now just over 1000 orbs, I'm so ready for Brave Micaiah. I think if I get enough Micaiah copies, I'll free pick Eliwood and use the res of my orbs on Hubert.
  12. All difficulties of this map was just throw DC Eirika + Tactitania + L!Eliwood at it and win. Eirika with bonus doubler under tactics and her special refine cleared it easily enough. Clair mopped up.
  13. Is... Is Alois really that old? He never seemed particularly old to me, just mustached and a little bit thicc. Honestly, I put him in his thirties; I wouldn't say he's dad levels of old.
  14. I think that advice is meant to build up Thunder WEXP so Calill can better combat dragons in E-3.
  15. After many a months, I have returned!!! ...Ignore that last post; got by just fine. Part 1 Chapter 6: The Lost Heir Section 1 Turns – 9/58 This chapter is the reason its been so long since I’ve updated (and, you know, finals, family work, obligations, etc.). This chapter was rough. What’s not shown is many, many failed attempts where Nolan died from a miss on his part. Um, my main strategy was for Jill to do her own thing all over the place while Sothe and Nolan tried to trudge forward ft. Miccy D and the Laurameister. If this was Normal Mode, Laura might have had enough BEXP to not be dead at all moments, but oh well. This chapter took much longer, but the next one was soo much worse… Unit Class Level HP Str Mag Skl Spd Lck Def Res Weapon Level Skills Stat Boosters Micaiah Light Mage 10.21 20 03 18 11 11 17 04 12 C Light Sacrifice, Shove, Shade Spirit Dust Nolan Fighter 14/1.68 34 15 03 13 14 10 13 07 A Axe Nihil, Shove, Cancel, Adept Dracoshield Sothe Rogue -/04.46 36 21 04 23 22 18 14 09 S Knives Guard, Steal, Shove, Wrath Laura Priest 04.09 18 03 10 06 05 09 02 12 B Staves Shove, Discipline Jill DragonMaster 14/1.83 33 15 03 13 16 14 15 05 A Axe/D Lance Canto, Renewal Seraph, Energy Section 2 Turns – 6/64 This chapter almost forced me to use Taurauneoneone (however you spell your name). I didn’t; I persevered. Truly, Nola was the LVP today. I’ve ever been so sad with a unit. This is the first time that biorhythm really has messed me up this run. Also, Laura was shown to be not usable this chapter; too hard to maneuver around. Jill again flew all over the place making a legend out of herself. Micaiah actually put some work in; Shade has been more reliable than I’d think. Sothe is still solid; he was just here being the most reliable unit on the map. Paragon will be nice. Also, can I just say that Fiona dying is annoying. She died on many attempts prior. I have so many issues with the idea behind the chapter. But oh well.

I let the TOrmod gang do their own thing as long as I could reasonably, and tried to let as many prisoners out as possible. I maybe could have gotten them all out in that time, but I was worries that they would conk it. Gave Micaiah Paragon to get her some levels; tragically, no speed. However, I feel like I’ve reached the point of Part 1 where its not too bad to, well, exist. I like to complain about Part 1, but its honestly my favorite of the game’s Parts. Looking forward to seeing Rafiel.

  16. Wow, that's a nice surprise. It was thought that there'd be a Three Houses banner to commemorate the release, but the free Byleth (with a purchase) is a nice bonus. Also, I totally missed the 2020 part, and thought we had like 3 days to get it lol
  17. Quick question! Um, so I think I'll need to use an undrafted unit for me to finish one of the chapters I have. I was wondering, is the penalty for using the unit at all, or is it per use (for example, a 4 turn penalty for one battle in the map)? Also, if the unit is only used in one part of a two-parter, does the penalty count for both parts or just one? Sorry and thanks!
  18. I’m intending on continuing. Just a bit busy with life. (I also tend to play FE slow)
  19. Team Bartre wooh!!! Leading the charge with my own stache.
  20. Now in that case, I did care about those fictional characters (at least Himiko)...
  21. I mean, if Fjorm likes the summoner, then I don't think it really matters who the summoner is. For heterosexual men and homosexual/bisexual women, then it is just a female character having affection for the summoner. For heterosexual women and homosexual men (in my case), it is just an unrequited affection. Either way, its not really a big deal. I don't particularly care if a female character likes my summoner; its just an empty affection. Also, this is about fictional characters in a mobile game, so I lack any motive to care.
  22. I feel so aggressively nonplussed by the leak, simply do to my inability to ever believe leaks. And even if the leaks are true, I'll most likely a.) forget about them, and b.) possible spoilers don't mean much to m, because I'm more of an execution kind of guy. I just hope no one lets the leaks ruin or overinflate their hype. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  23. That mustache is perfect, 776/10, would whale for in Heroes.
