  1. Looks like Lysithea and Sylvain have the most supports of anyone after Byleth, at 17 and 18 respectively. Though I give the edge to Lysithea, considering she manages 11 supports that reach A/S versus Sylvain's 6. Poor guy must be getting rejected left and right.
  2. I don't really have any breather games to fill the gaps, so I'll either play through everything if it's good or probably drop it and get around to it later if it's not, as I did with Revelations. But you're right that the game is starting to sound almost daunting in scope. I intend to fully play through all routes at least once, but even the idea of playing through the same route again with different recruited characters just to see the dialog differences is starting to sound exhausting. I never thought I'd say this, but I kind of wish Phoenix Mode was still here to speed things along.
  3. I'm more interested if there's a way for her to use Catherine's Thunderbrand, considering Charon's crest is on it. That would make Mortal Savant a very interesting option for her, at least to me.
  4. Ah. I rarely venture into Youtube's comments section.
  5. You know, I do actually wonder what the power dynamics really are in this case. Byleth's being given this teaching position because of some combination of their displayed abilities, their famous dad, and whatever Rhea might know/suspect. They're still ultimately a random outsider not everyone at the monastery is even sure they can trust (Seteth, for instance), so it's a bit hard for me to imagine Byleth could actually exert the kind of power you'd see with more conventional teachers. Doubly so when you consider that most of these students are scions of nobility or other wealthy families, some of which no doubt have much stronger ties to the church than a sellsword's son. And even that's assuming such power plays can exist with the student in question; many of them appear to be here solely to better themselves for when they go on to serve the roles they've already been guaranteed from birth, and an F on their report card isn't going to change that. The only move Byleth can pull that's coming to my mind is maneuvering them to get killed in battle, but that's hardly limited to the students. Once Byleth's presumably leading the army in the war phase even the former teachers are at their mercy, just like everyone Robin and Corrin may have wanted to romance.
  6. A finale path that closes out the overarching story could be good, but only with a few caveats. First, the other routes would need to stand on their own and not feel incomplete or invalidated by this 4th route. I could get behind three routes of country politics followed by a route of dragon slaying and Sothis exposition, but the three countries better not come out better off than their own routes in the process. Second, I can get behind anyone being recruitable, but it's boring to have everyone be recruitable. It just feels contrived. I'd rather have to pick 12 favored students to join me while the other 12 tragically fall in battle or something. I don't know, just don't be everyone.
  7. Perhaps a certain someone will have no choice but to (try to) eliminate him as he clings to unreasonable ideas of justice.
  8. It's been a while, but I seem to recall not being able to play Smash Ultimate at 9pm when it launched. But then I just changed my Switch's timezone setting to EST and tried again, and it worked fine. So if it doesn't work initially that should still be an option.
  9. Okay, let's recap: Hilda's lazy and doesn't want to bother with fighting. Marianne has no confidence and wants to be left at home. Ignatz probably doesn't even want to be here in the first place. It's no wonder Claude is pushing for friendship to settle everything. Otherwise he'll have to fight the whole war by himself.
