  1. One more vote for Cynthia and they'll be tied. We haven't had a single tie happen yet...that'd be interesting to see.
  2. Xander finally shows up, and he looks...fine. I gotta be honest, I almost expected him to be a little more menacing. But, still, he looks fine, good enough. I'm not really a fan of him so I don't feel the need to use orbs to summon him. I don't think Felicia, Jakob, or Kaze were ever going to be Legendary units. Ascended, maybe, now that that's a thing, but Legendary? I highly doubt there was ever a chance, especially if someone like Joshua didn't make the cut. I'd be unsure about Elise and Sakura, as well. I think Male Corrin is really the only lock Fates has left, with the only other potentials maybe being the older royal sisters and middle royal brothers.
  3. Cormag is my favorite character of this bunch, I think? But I also really like Altena, Jill, and Minerva. I'll start with Cormag, I think, and see what happens from there. If he loses, then hopefully Altena/Jill/Minerva are still in it.
  4. Well, this gives me hope that a dedicated FEW2 will happen at some point. I already love the Shadow Dragon characters used in FEW, and most of the Awakening ones. I'd love to see those expanded a little and other games get characters.
  5. Yeah, I think that's it. It's a shame because I really do like the art as a whole, I just wish the face was different. That's a handy chart. I'm definitely expecting a wave of Awakening and Fates characters, it seems like they have the most to catch up on.
  6. Blazing Blade has gotten a good number of both Nifl and Hel outfits between Lyn, Serra, Matthew, Raven, Florina, and Karla. I wonder if the next Blazing character will keep that trend up or go for a region it doesn't have much of. I like Hel Karla's art, but something about the face in her neutral/standard art seems slightly off. I can't quite put my finger on it. But, regardless, another piece of good Resplendent art.
  7. The next Resplendent is Karla: Sword Vassal. Our second Blazing Blade character in a row.
  8. Are you serious right now? Holy crap, you're serious. Okay, cool. Fine. First of all, I've been on these forums for a decade, and in all of that time the vast majority of arguments I've had have been with the same couple of users, including you. This history you speak of does not exist. I don't take things the wrong way. I respond to people's direct words, in quotes for full context. I am, 100% of the time, immediately told to "fuck off" or some such thing, by you. I am never given any clarification when I ask. I am always at fault, according to you. You immediately double down...and then accuse me of taking things the wrong way. After literally just now taking something I said the wrong way. Quite frankly, I'm sick of it. Secondly, please, tell me how the hell I'm supposed to react. Please, tell me. Should I call a mod? According to you, any reaction is an overreaction. Just so long as you get to keep treating people like dirt, right? Third, of course I'm defensive! It seems like I have to continuously put up with this shit from you, and we haven't even had an argument for a long time! You do know you're the one who has started every disagreement we've ever had, right? Fourth, I don't call anyone out for anything unless it's actually been done, in direct quotes. This very topic, for example, my last post right before this one is the only post where I've posted with any kind of anger or annoyance. I thought the discussion was going pretty well, truth be told! And then you, yes, you act like a dick and tell me to fuck off. Not me, you. You got mad at me, not the other way around. You wanna know the cold, hard fact? You treat me like absolute shit. Complete and total shit. We're not similar at all, I actually try having a nice discussion before blowing up. You have a funny way of showing it. Are you sure? Because it sounds as if you're inferring that I did believe that. And if you're not, then why the hell even say this? It doesn't make any sense. Well, shit, ditto to you, too! "Ugh, you took it the wrong way!" You literally just told me to fuck off. There is no other way to take that. You told me to fuck off and then, for some fucked up reason, went the route of post history? Not even true post history. So, fine, I'm fucking off. You win. If you want to start actually lying now because...reasons?...then fine. Please, leave me alone. I'm not playing this game. I'm not going the extremely low-blow dirty route of bringing up your post history (misconstrued and portrayed wrong, in your case with mine here). Just leave me alone. I'm sure you'll portray this whole post as me overreacting and taking it the wrong way, right? Lol.
  9. First, calm down. You said the four most popular males in the franchise, by CYL 1, were not in FEW. That is false. That's it. There's no excuses being made. That's just a simple fact, with actual literal numerical results behind it. You are absolutely free to dislike Marth, but the lengths you go to show that dislike have gotten increasingly ridiculous over the years here on these forums. Not once in this discussion has either of us brought up anything about Marth's popularity, aside from just now this instance. Second, calm down. You're right, you don't have to be for complete equality to think that what we got wasn't quite right. But you also will not try to shift it and say I believe that. Third, calm down. Go be a dick to someone else. I will not stand for it and I have no patience for it. You want someone to fuck off? Maybe you should.
  10. Which polls? CYL 1? In CYL 1, if you combine Marth's Shadow Dragon and New Mystery numbers, he's 4th place for all males, beating out Chrom and being behind only Ike, Roy, and Hector. And if you separate them, then Chrom is 4th...and Marth is still 5th. Anyway. Not once did I say I believed they hit the right balance. But what you described, your philosophy, is exactly what FEW did. Don't try and turn it around as if it's my philosophy or belief. It isn't. All I did was break down your own philosophy. I made it pretty clear more than once that I believe FEW should balance ALL the mainline games and have ALL those main major characters, I don't think FEW hit the balance at all. Don't be mad that your own idea of what FEW should have done or should do is exactly what FEW did...just not with characters you personally like. And don't be mad at me for pointing it out.
  11. If that's the philosophy you want to use, then...yes, FEW did hit that balance. What would sell the most copies? Awakening and Fates. Throw in Marth and a couple of Shadow Dragon characters, the super popular Lyn, and one of the protagonists from the upcoming Gaiden remake, call it a day, and you have one of the most logical, financially sound game you can possibly have. Older fans get some fanservice, and Awakening and Fates guarantee sales. The only characters missing are Ike and Roy, and that's it. No one else. As for respecting every game's fans, well, with this philosophy, does Tellius actually have fans, outside of Ike fans? Not in the eyes of IS, not at that time. Tellius had been a financial failure. Genealogy, Thracia, and Sacred Stones? Too niche for any impact at the time, even by Fire Emblem standards. The only characters of note from any of those three games are the Renais twins. What fans are there to respect? This goes right along with your X-Men and Inhumans comparison. FEW hit EXACTLY that balance (sans Ike and Roy). Keep in mind that FEW was considered a financial success. It makes perfect sense for making the best game for the most people. Not balancing the roster between games is what makes no sense for the best game for the most people. The most people is "all" so, for example, why would you give Echoes fans nothing but Alm and Celica, but then give Tellius fans every royal laguz, every Greil mercenary, and all the Crimean Knights? That makes no sense for the best game for the most people. You're talking to a Brom fan.
  12. I wholly disagree. Just because one game's cast isn't as beloved as another's doesn't mean that game should have less attention. As for sufficient or "proper" representation goes, it is simply not possible to sufficiently compare something like Tellius to Sacred Stones, or Archanea to Blazing Blade, since each and every game in the franchise has different numbers of playable characters, ranging from as high as 70 to as low as 30, the best thing to do is just pick a baseline number for overall representation and apply to all games. Tellius having 15 characters but Binding Blade only having 2 is NOT optimal, or proper/sufficient representation. It also just isn't fair to compare only important characters for each game when something like Awakening only has Chrom, Lucina, and Robin, compared to Genealogy where they have Sigurd, Deirdre, Julia, Seliph, Lewyn, Altena, etc. You have to just pick a number and apply it to everyone, it's the fairest way. If you really, REALLY wanna go down the path of "proper" and "sufficient" representation, then just having Byleth, Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude is sufficient for Three Houses. Only Ike, Micaiah, and maybe Elincia is sufficient for Tellius, you don't NEED anyone else. Sigurd and Seliph, maybe Julia, is all you truly need for Genealogy. Does that seem right? No, it doesn't. But only having Leif for Thracia isn't right, either, nor is it sufficient or proper representation for Thracia 776. That game has more important and/or plot-moving characters than most people give it credit for, several of which I already mentioned (Nanna, Finn, Eyvel, Mareeta, Sara). Just like having only Alm and Celica for Echoes isn't really sufficient or proper representation for that game. With all of that said, though, I DID try to keep in mind plot relevance/importance and popularity. Almost every character I picked for each game has that for their respective game, with only a few not. I also tried to keep in mind class balance, which is where some of those less popular characters fit in (along with a couple being connected to another character in some way).
  13. Almost every book I mentioned was written by Zahn (Allegiance, Choices of One, Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, The Last Command, Specter of the Past, Vision of the Future, Survivor's Quest). He's truly the king of EU Star Wars. Or just Star Wars outside of the movies, honestly. Dude knows his stuff.
  14. Yes, I would absolutely still like to see a dedicated FEW2. I still want to see more than just Awakening and Fates getting attention, and I don't want to see Three Houses getting complete dedication again. I'd love to see the good gameplay aspects of both FEW1 and Three Hopes combined in some way, with a balanced roster between all the games. A roster that maybe looks something like this: Shadow Dragon/(New) Mystery of the Emblem: Marth, Caeda, Tiki, Minerva, Linde, Navarre, Camus, Nyna, Ogma, Merric Gaiden/Echoes: Alm, Celica, Lukas, Clair, Clive, Silque, Saber, Mae, Boey, Conrad Genealogy of the Holy War: Sigurd, Deirdre, Ayra, Tailtiu, Lewyn, Seliph, Julia, Ced, Ares, Altena Thracia 776: Leif, Nanna, Finn, Eyvel, Mareeta, Linoan, Deen, Olwen, Sara, Saias Binding Blade: Roy, Lilina, Fae, Cecilia, Sophia, Melady, Sue, Rutger, Klein, Thea Blazing Blade: Eliwood, Hector, Lyn, Ninian, Nils, Nino, Jaffar, Florina, Pent, Louise Sacred Stones: Eirika, Ephraim, Myrrh, Joshua, L'Arachel, Innes, Tana, Seth, Cormag, Saleh Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn: Ike, Mist, Soren, Titania, Elincia, Micaiah, Sothe, Jill, Brom, Nephenee Awakening: Chrom, Lucina, Robin, Lissa, Frederick, Cordelia, Olivia, Tharja, Owain, Inigo Fates: Corrin, Azura, Ryoma, Xander, Hinoka, Camilla, Takumi, Leo, Sakura, Elise Three Houses: Byleth, Edelgard, Hubert, Bernadetta, Dimitri, Dedue, Felix, Claude, Hilda, Marianne Ten characters from each game for the base starter roster, with DLC potential for characters like Matthew, Lysithea, Julian and Lena, and others. Marth's games and Ike's games combined because, unlike the Elibe and Jugdral games where 90% of the cast is new separate and unrelated, the Marth/Ike games share 90% of their cast.
  15. -A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi are all fantastic. -The Phantom Menace and Revenge of the Sith range between good and very good. -Attack of the Clones is...well, not great, but still better than anything Disney has done with the license. Yes, that includes The Mandalorian. -"Allegiance," "Choices of One," "Shadows of the Empire," "Heir to the Empire," "Dark Force Rising," "The Last Command," "I,Jedi," "Ambush at Corellia," "Assault at Selonia," "Showdown at Centerpoint," "Specter of the Past," "Vision of the Future," and "Survivor's Quest," are all pretty great Star Wars books. (Listed in order of their placement in the timeline, not in publishing order.) -Making the old Expanded Universe non-canon was a gigantic mistake on Disney's part. Not all of it is good, there's quite a bit of bad, but there is still a large sizeable portion of it that is VERY good, such as all those books I just mentioned, and some I didn't. There's also a plethora of fantastic characters that are infinitely better than any and every character Disney has come up with, such as Mara Jade and Kyle Katarn. Heck, Mara Jade is one of the best characters Star Wars has ever had, period. And then of course there's all the great video games that amount to nothing now for the new canon. The good in the EU completely blows each and every thing Disney has done with the new canon out of the water. -The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker are all just awful, for various reasons. Rogue One and Solo are bad, too. All the Disney+ series have been bad as well (The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi...), and my hope that maybe just one will be good has so far had no positive results. -Can you tell I don't like Disney Star Wars? I dislike every single thing they've done with the license. All of the movies they've attempted, their treatment of all the old characters like Luke and Obi-Wan, the new canon and new characters...all of it, I dislike it all.
  16. I definitely wanna grab these, especially Dimitri, Claude, and Felix. I hope they make one for Marianne at some point, and/or expand to other games in the franchise.
  17. So, we're down to Cynthia and Owain. I guess the question is does the majority want the unexpected underdog Cynthia to win? Or, the kinda predictable and ever-popular Owain to win?
  18. I'm assuming all of the playable characters in Smash Bros. Ultimate are not included for this, because we'd assume they're already in Smash 6? With that thought, I'd add... 1. Crash Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot) 2. Lyn (Fire Emblem) 3. Spyro the Dragon (Spyro) 4. Waluigi (Mario) 5. Impa (Zelda) 6. Second Gen/Johto Pokemon Trainer (Feraligatr, Quilava, Chikorita) (Pokemon) 7. Zael (The Last Story) 8. Shovel Knight (Shovel Knight) 9. Crono (Chrono Trigger) 10. Terra (Final Fantasy) 11. Dixie Kong (Donkey Kong) 12. Peppy Hare (Star Fox) 13. Medusa (Kid Icarus) 14. Kumatora (Mother/Earthbound) 15. Balloon Fighter (Balloon Fight) 16. Samurai Goroh (F-Zero) I limited myself to one character per series. My other considerations had I decided to use multiple characters from one series were Dr. Neo Cortex (Crash Bandicoot), Dingodile (Crash Bandicoot), Cranky Kong (Donkey Kong), Funky Kong (Donkey Kong), Ninten (Earthbound), Kass (The Legend of Zelda), Ephraim (Fire Emblem), Hades (Kid Icarus), Magnus (Kid Icarus), and Jin Kazama (Tekken), along with Captain Syrup (Wario Land) and Soma Cruz (Castlevania) for their respective series that I didn't include a character for.
  19. 452. Sain: Green Lance 453. Matthew: Faithful Spy 454. Elincia: Seaside Queen 455. Florina: Azure-Sky Knight 456. Flora: Cold as Ice 457. Stahl: Viridian Knight
  20. I'm done summoning on this banner. I got two Sains and sparked for Ascended Florina. I'd like to get Kent as well, but since he's the demote, he'll be much easier to summon later on down the line since he'll be in the common summoning pool. I'm very happy with what I got.
  21. I don't know why, but for some reason I thought you meant New Heroes banners. Brain fart.
  22. I got two Sain and Ascended Florina from the Blazing Blade banner, I'm pleased with that and done summoning for now. I won't be spending anymore orbs until a character comes along that I REALLY want, whether it be a character like Brom that's only just getting in to Heroes or a character like Lyn getting another variant.
  23. Lucia, Geoffrey, Brom, Ascended Nephenee. That's the dream!
