  1. It’s a damn shame this is happening, but in retrospect I’m not surprised. I think the main issue is that Cipher is intended to be a TCG, but hardly anybody cares about that aspect and mostly focuses on the pretty art. It’s not like Pokémon where there’s national/international tournaments (actually are there national tournaments? Do correct me if I’m wrong), and it’s at a disadvantage with Feh which actually gets global recognition and revenue. Plus, since Ciphers inception, a lot of artists (including those who’ve worked on Cipher themselves) have come out of the woodwork and done their own freelance drawings on Twitter/Pixiv which makes a layer of redundancy. Why buy a steak dinner’s worth on a piece of paper when you download your desired work to your phone/computer? Hope the artists out there continue to do good work, and maybe we’ll see a new medium out there for them to invest into.
  2. @Shahrivar Really? Anastasia was underwhelming? We must not have read the same story. I’d say that while I wasn’t as attached to the newcomers as I was in previous stories (Ivan and Salieri as you mentioned were particularly underutilized), the story has some of the best world-building I’ve seen in FGO and there some very strong individual character moments like Kadoc/Anastasia’s relationship (I ship em hard), I was initially skeptical considering how, say, Shimousa was overhyped. However, this one genuinely lived up to the praise the JP players gave it, at least in my eyes. I thought this was a solid start to the Lostbelt saga.
  3. Sonic Adventure 2 (and to a lesser extent 1): Easily my favorite Sonic game and one I think could use an overhaul to the gameplay and graphics. I’m not as attached to the first Adventure game, but I wouldn’t be against a remake so long as 2 isn’t overlooked. Fire Emblem 6+7: Binding Blade remains my favorite FE game, and Blazingn Sword is somewhere in my top 5, so they’re my top candidates. A bundle would be ideal. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl: I know, it’s a given, but I just hope it follows the path of HGSS/ORAS rather than the Let’s Go games.
  4. I never thought in a million years that a collab with a spinoff that I never even heard of until now would get precedence over Tsukihime or Hollow Fragments. So much for 2k20 being the year of ending memes instead of prolonging them.
  5. Assassins, not surprisingly, were the most common source of finding an mlb 5* gacha CE, but that’s not saying much when I’d have to reset as many as 50 or so times to even find one. At that point I’m better off just making off with what my friends already have since I’d be shooting myself in terms of efficiency.
  6. Man, you’d think you’d find mlb 5* gacha CEs easily cause everybody loves Shiki and Fujino, but no. Not a single person on my friends list had one, and they’re almost mythical status trying to find one otherwise. Trying to farm cats was a nightmare to the point of me giving up on the shop in the waning days. Pardon my sour grapes, but I was really in this for the free SR anyways. Also eyyy Merlin update and more SQ. Will take gladly.
  7. Man I’m getting pretty burned out with this event. This ladder is just obnoxiously high and I still need to get that second lore. Please just give me KnK already.
  8. You know what? I’ll bite. I got a bad feeling you’ll hate this one 😛
  9. Not a varied, colorful list, but a dedicated one nonetheless. All in the name of best teacher Baeleth!
  10. Another Medea fan? I love you already! All the grails I used so far were for Medea (3), Medusa (3), Medusa Lily (2), Ereshkigal (5), and Mata Hari (9 soon to be 10 after Valentines 3). Medea and Medusa were personal favorites so I gave them some love. Medulily has horrible bst so I used a couple grails in an attempt to salvage it somewhat. I’m a Rin fanboy so I felt obligated to max Ereshkigal out as well as help with her wonky bst. Mata Hari... honestly I just wanted to do something out of field with a character I liked somewhat. Hell I don’t think I ever used her yet lol. Don’t regret any of my choices since they’re my babes. ❤️ I otherwise don’t really put much stock or value in grails since 1) I couldn’t care less about “optimal” use of them 2) grails don’t make that huge a difference in the long run and 3) in the case of SSRs and to a lesser extent SRs, there’s always the case of me being indecisive and second guessing myself. For example, I like Okita/Brynhild/Jalter/etc, but do I like them enough to use a limited resource that’ll never get back? Scathach is a personal favorite of mine, but I already have a lvl 100 lancer in Eresh. Is that redundant? That’s what causes me to stick to one’s where the muse strikes me. I’m weird like that.
  11. Agreed, and vice versa for characters like Lysithea, Bernadetta, and maybe even Marianne/Dorothea. I can’t help but feel if Heroes wasn’t so intent on slow-rolling the 3H cast, the standings could be vastly different.
  12. I’m still going strong for my girl Byleth. Must keep pushing the best teacher forward! Honestly I’m pretty... underwhelmed with the current standings. I’m fine with Dimitri and Claude as characters, though two characters from the same game has me conflicted. I have some choice words for Edelgard, but at least she makes sense as CYL fodder. Lysithea isn’t even in the game yet and having someone with fairly minimal story significance earn a very prestigious spot feels... wrong. Also Triandra>Plumeria don’t @ me.
  13. I had such a hard time deciding between Nezha, Lancer Alter, and Zerkerlot that I resorted to rng to settle it for me. It selected Lancelot, viola.
  14. I’m gonna represent team F!Byleth, 3H best girl. Also might throw some votes for Katarina and Linhardt.
  15. As someone who was in both categories, the former with me being a Shadow hopeful, I’ll admit those factors didn’t help. It was pretty much the straw that broke the camels back for me since I found Ken and Incineroar to be lame additions. I’ve since gotten over the salt (well... mostly), but that was a long November for me. I think you’re getting some terms mixed up. Only Pichu was purposefully designed to be a joke character; it was added to literally be Pikachu but worse. R.O.B and Duck Hunt were unexpected picks, but they weren’t intended as jokes at all. Both were important retro characters in Nintendo’s history and were implemented in the game respectfully and accurately. Hell, Wii Fit Trainer would be a better example and even then she’s intended to be taken seriously as an addition. Piranha Plant’s specific reason to being added was something along the lines of Sakurai wanting another “villainous” character added with the Plant being familiar to most gamers. This wasn’t an addition just for laughs. Honestly I’m glad I got it free because otherwise I’d be in a similar position and wouldn’t touch the Plant with a ten foot pole. I can’t say I would’ve be personally excited for Bandana Dee (it likely would’ve been an another indifferent addition for me), but I at least would’ve respected it as a choice.
