Re:Born

It's been 2 years since Warriors. Have you're opinions on the game changed since then?

While people say that Fates has the majority of the representation, I'm pretty sure that's due to Fates having a lot of major characters to begin with - the vanilla representation is Corrin and all eight Royal Siblings. 

That's still a large majority of the representation though, cuz with the DLC, Fates has 12 fucking characters (13 if you include the non playable Iago)

That's true but you technically don't need all of them. Royals like Takumi, Xander and Camilla are very obvious additions that you can't ignore but the states of other royals is much more questionable. Hinoka is a pretty unimportant character in the grand scheme of things and you could argue that Lissa already has the cheery blonde lil sis role covered so Elice wasn't really required either. That's already two royals that could have easily been cut.

Yeah honestly if you were to ask me how I would handle the Fates representation, it would be Corrin, Azura, Ryoma, Xander, Takumi, and Camilla. That's it, no one else.

Any excuse to not have Elise taking a roster slot would make me happy. Though I'd actually add Hinoka and Leo.

 

I think baseline, I'd have kept Corrin, Ryoma, Xander, Camilla, and Takumi, with the dlc pack being Azura, Hinoka, and Leo.

I'd keep Azura in the base roster cuz of how stupid it was for her to be the royal to get axed from the base game and not either Sakura or Elise, but other than that, yeah that seems like a fair lineup

My opinion mostly stayed the same on Warriors. A good solid game thats lacking in charm. Its Roster and story could both use some work.

The roster is naturally the biggest complaint, but I would't have minded nearly as much as they actually went ahead as they advertised. SD/Awakening/Fates is not my combination of Fire Emblem games, but limiting yourself to 3 games gives you a bit of structure to work with. hyrule warriors did the same and I think it worked out well there. SD/Awakening/Fates isn't my crossover combination, but i'm not too harsh on them making that choice.

I am harsh however on the fact the base game did a very bad job with their crossover selection.  It did't feel like SD/Awakening/Fates at all. They mostly stuck to Awakening and Fates. Shadow dragon was giving the absolute minimun of attention. They had little room in the story and their playable roster was just 3 characters. SD got the main characters they where forced to include and they decided not to go any further then that.

And on the whole the roster was just a bit lacking in imagination. If the second most popular female character in Awakening is your 'risky' pick, then you are playing things very safe. Why not have Donnel or Arthur trip around the battlefield? A Legion using Legions in his fighting style. Felicia too would lend herself well to a warriors game. Hyrule warriors gave itself a lot more freedom and it gave some amusing characters like Agatha or the villains. I felt they where a bit too concerned with cramming all the popular/important characters in and forgot to have a bit of fun with their concept.

Its not all bad though. The game's fault is its charm and not its quality. All playstyles are enjoyable to use and the game has a lot of content going for it. They did't go completely overboard like Zelda, but I think the trial maps where a good amount of content. The supports also get a + from me. Its nice seeing characters from different games interact. Its something Heroes doesn't do enough off.

Charm matters though. So while I enjoyed my time in Warriors, I also haven't really thought about it in a long time. I don't see myself returning to it any time soon either.
