  1. Oh boy, Perceval is in the next Ephemera lineup. I’m totally not already sitting on three manuals of him as is. Maybe at this point, I should start considering whether I want to merge him up.
  2. That's a fair point regarding FE4 (and certain other games, like Shadows of Valentia). The only notable playable characters (in terms of story) left for FE4 Gen 1 to add are regular Brigid, Edain and Claud. The rest of the lot (Alec, Naoise, Midir, Dew, Chulainn, Beowolf) is pretty unremarkable and non-essential. Though if we do get one more FE4 Gen 1 banner, would you believe if I said Dew had the CYL5 rank out of all the characters I named except for Brigid?
  3. Maybe not for characters already in the game, but it seems pretty clear that (based on most of the characters added this year) IS does look at CYL results when deciding on which characters to add. Counting debuts as seasonal units (such characters are marked with an *), they've added 20 characters mostly Three Houses ones, of course this year who placed within CYL5's top 100. They are: And in general, they typically prioritize the highest ranked missing characters from a given game. Like with FE4, Erinys and Azelle were 1st and 3rd (Azelle barely lost 2nd to Tine) among the missing FE4 characters respectively in CYL5. And from our most recent New Heroes banner, Wolf was 1st in CYL5 among the missing Archanean characters and carried the rest of the Wolfguard / Coyote's Men into FEH because they all placed much lower than Wolf.
  4. Swordhart can't pitybreak you at this point because he's a 4* Special pull now. Nah, on the other hand, very much can (until she too gets yeeted into the 4* Special pool sometime next year). Regardless, any chance you need a drinking buddy? Because this game very much hates me too (at least when I'm spending orbs):
  5. IS, probably: "Hmm, which of these FE7 characters should we give a Resplendent next?" Ninian: 70th in CYL5, "nope, too popular" Florina: 150th in CYL5, has trash art and no standalone alt(s), "nah" Lloyd: 190th in CYL5 and has legendarily bad art, "lol, grail unit" Lucius: 193rd in CYL5, "pass" Jaffar and Matthew: 229th and 233rd in CYL5 respectively, "we've already filled the dagger Resplendent quota for the year" Discount Hilda Serra: 248th in CYL5, "PERFECT" And for the record, Raven also ranked below the first four characters in CYL5 (but was slightly ahead of Jaffar and Matthew). IS really knows how to pick 'em.
  6. Hey look, another Resplendent that gets a big ol' fat *YAWN* from me. No, I don't even care that's a 3*-4* staff mostly because they picked the wrong one if their intent was to get me to care. I swear, these underwhelming picks are really feeling deliberate at this point and my patience with them is starting to run really thin.
  7. Or it could mean he's getting Gustav'd / Freyr'd and we aren't getting either one ever. Maybe he'll at least get an OP seasonal alt like Gustav. They have the same character description too, but do have different voice lines though dragon Fafnir's special cut-in lines just involve him either saying "die / death" or screaming.
  8. Yup, that’s the entire reason Freyja gets a pass for being a genuinely bad villain. She is pretty much identical to Otr (who is pretty universally disliked) in terms of motivation and character, but most don’t care because she’s hot and want her to step on them.
  9. Yeah, and it could double as a convenient way to reuse popular females for games that are running out of females (both popular or not) in general. I could see them doing lineups like these: Valentia Banner: Ascended Celica (post Act 3 / using her Princess class), Kamui, Atlas, Mycen Binding Blade Banner: Ascended Idunn (post good ending), Gonzalez, Cath, Hugh Blazing Blade Banner: Ascended Lyn (post Lyn Mode, uses Mani Katti), Sain, Kent, Wil Awakening Banner: Ascended Lucina (post Future Past), Severa, Inigo, Laurent
  10. So if the next Special Heroes banner is ninja themed again, there's an increased chance of Deen (the SoV one, not the Thracia one) being on that banner because Sedgar has his Japanese voice actor (Tsuguo Mogami, was also Massena in SoV yo ninja Massena let's go) and this voice actor was not already in the cast. Deen being on that banner would also fit with the first one which included two fellow Navarre archetype characters (Navarre himself and Zihark). Other voice actor tidbits concerning this latest group of characters include: Wolf: both of his voice actors are pretty obscure, especially his English one Sedgar: in addition to the Deen thing, he shares with Kempf and Kurthnaga (Brandon Winckler) in English so Sedgar is another GHB unit where they recycled a voice actor Vyland: shares with Balthus (Subaru Kimura) in Japanese, his English voice actor (Matt Shipman) is not related to Megan Shipman (Reginn, Dithorba) as far as I know Roshea: shares with Linhardt (Shun Horie) in Japanese, which may or may not suggest a seasonal Linhardt alt sometime soon Malice: shares with baby Lyon (Mutsumi Tamura) in Japanese
  11. So, Nott was apparently so pointless that she had to die but Mirabilis got to live through her book? IS can't even pick the right filler characters to kill off now. Also, let it now be stated that being a FEH OC and an eldest sister means you're going to die (and may or may not be revived like Laegjarn or Triandra), and it may or may not have a point or meaning.
  12. So, uh, anyone know the context to this? Until I'm told otherwise, I'm just going to assume she's talking about Kris. Also, Malice joins Lifis in Askr's newly formed "Sailor's Mouth" club. Though seriously, I'm still not used to seeing "jackass" used in a Fire Emblem game.
  13. So, three of my free summon sets had a green while two did not. I only really wanted new Fjorm and couldn’t care less about the other three. Naturally, this and this happened: Good to know my luck was wasted on a banner I had no intentions of spending orbs on rather than, I dunno, the Halloween 2021 one where I have gotten no focus units after at least 100 orbs spent.
  14. Update is up, and so is the next Hall of Forms lineup [SPOILERS]: Also, go do a run of the Tempest Trial if you want to get Ascended Fjorm's silhouette in your catalog.
  15. The spread of red/blue/green bows is currently 6/9/9, so red is indeed behind. All of the red bows except bride Shanna are infantry as well and the first red bow (Igrene) wasn't released until November 2019 (when colored bows as a concept debuted with Legendary Lyn on May 1st, 2018).
  16. How about, just don't have a FEH OC on literally every New Heroes banner? Save the OCs only for the banners (like this one) that would've been doomed to bomb if it had to stand on its on. That sounds like a reasonable and sound idea to me. Like, Muspell absolutely did not need to be on the Ashen Wolves banner from a sales standpoint. Yuri and friends would've made bank just as easily on their own. That last Fates banner also would've been just fine without Nifl. Constantly shoehorning in FEH OCs is only going to cause people to become more and more tired of them (even people like me who tolerate them). You know, like what happened to Awakening and Fates near the beginning of this game's lifespan (and Awakening in particular is still being punished for that early seasonal spam to this day).
  17. That revenant isn’t even a FEH original. It’s the design from Shadows of Valentia. But yeah sure, have a FEH OC on every New Heroes banner just to have a FEH OC. That’s definitely the reason IS is doing this and I can’t possibly see how this idea might piss people off if it’s taken to absurd levels.
  18. I don't think anyone's acknowledged this yet: Vyland's kit: Unbound Axe+, Smite, -, Atk/Def Push 3, Atk/Def Link 3, - Like with Tatiana, there'll be two 5* copies of him to get via quests. Vyland won't be available to regularly summon until the November Special Heroes banner.
  19. For those keeping score on this (so no one but me), this is the eight month out of ten this year where we got a unit with Atk/Spd Push 4. And if one useless fun fact wasn't enough for you, there still isn't a single male unit with Atk/Spd Push 4 (or 3 for that matter) despite the constant spam of it.
  20. Yeah, Vyland is probably an instant demote (and may or may not be given out for free like Balthus was).
  21. Speaking as someone who isn't even a fan of the Archanean games, what the actual fuck is this lineup? They really bothered to add the entire Wolf Guard (Vyland is visible at about the 2:04 mark, he's an axe cav) before Elice, Nyna and, oh yeah, coyote Hardin himself. They definitely needed the FEH OC for this one, because this one would've bombed so hard if it was just Wolf/Malice/Vyland/Roshea.
  22. Yeah, and the Fates Selena we do have is borderline unusable because her Atk is so bad. Even though I +10’d that Selena, I still might not use her as my bonus unit in the upcoming Arena season. Spider Sophia at least has Atk to kill shit with and an inheritable weapon that’s better than Selena’s Prf weapon.
  23. Yeah, we don’t have the opposite gender avatars as Legendaries but that doesn’t matter because the Pair Up Legendary chart is, as I said, complete: So, there’s two options: IS either just expands the chart or moves onto a new type of Legendary Hero. Regardless, the New Heroes trailer should be later today so we’ll know whether Champion Fjorm is a Legendary or not soon enough. And also, no I don’t believe a thread has been made for this month’s Legendary. As such, here’s what the Legendary/ Mythic calendar currently looks like for reference:
  24. Just for clarification, I don't hate or dislike Takumi at this point (I used to, but now all of my ire belongs to Edelgard and pretty much only Edelgard). It's just that if you actually got to choose your Grand Conquests team, I'd have gone with Sakura since she's easily my favorite.
