The wrath of the gods is not as bad as my tactical flops - Awful strategist plays Sun God's Wrath, Ironman mode!

The beginning of the game (as well as a few different parts for certain units) is like Radiant Dawn, everyone is a game over unit. What do I do if I lose someone there?  

18 members have voted

  1. 1. Answer me!

    • We'll just pretend nothing happened. No measures taken as long as there's a game over.
    • Use them as long as they're still game over units. Bench / kill off afterwards.
    • They died and that's it. Pretend they no longer exist. Bench / kill off as soon as possible.

Aaand… it’s over. This was yet another joy to read, and I can safely say I haven’t enjoyed a lot of LPs as much as these ones.

Thanks a lot, man! That means a lot to me, it really does.

Funfact: I finally started playing TearRing Saga, and I can see why you praised it so much. For the record, Leonie is currently a level 22 Sniper and she’s gotten 3 movement levels in her career. Aside from, you know, capping Speed and getting 13 Defense by the end of the first Runan split. I’ve been using the old gang (Juliattisnacordst (because I’m a die-hard FFV fan), Norton, Lee, Sasha, Kate…) with a few additions like Billford, Xeno and Attrom. It’s been great, honestly. Thanks for this, and for that.

I said it before and I'll say it again: TRS is a game of high highs and low lows, and while the lows are annoying, there's enough high to more than compensate. Hope you continue to enjoy it!

Also, I'd just like to say that reading Juliattisnacordst again made me smile. I hope you succeed where I failed, and guide him to achieve greatness!

I've never really had much to add so i've been lurking up until now, but I figure the grand finale's as good a time as any to finally pop out of the woodwork and say something. This LP's been an absolute blast to read since I first started following it, especially with seeing Kirin grow from her humble beginnings into an absolutely ridiculous movement monster, and it has quickly become one of my favorites out of the screenshot LPs i've read through. Despite my initial skepticism of the concept, the original bits pleasantly surprised me as well, being charming enough to read that by the end, I was looking forward to the OC crew's next chapters almost as much as the updates they accompanied. Great stuff all around, man.

I love how someone finally, FINALLY broke the tie at the poll... Immediately after the LP ended.

You guys are great.

And I really appreciate this as well! At this point that has become a little tradition of my LPs, that I do for the fun of it more than anything. But it makes me quite happy to know that some people out there enjoy those bits as well! Thanks.

Clint got killed in two hits.

Clint more like Clout. (I think ive used this one before, Also the image of his death isnt loadingfor me atm, so heres when he died I guess. 

Normally, this is where I would pun the entire death count, but I've been half-assing my replies this whole LP and I see no reason to stop now.

Finally it's over, the last map was great like you said. Only sad thing is, we never got to see the 1v1 of God and Astrea. I am currently at Mandrake's map so probably won't be able to show my final team like before, but will show the current one because why not. Mostly tried to list them according to usefulness.

 

307256739_2birds1stone.png.90478df256e77973785468156cbe8554.png     MVP.png.601db1fb937a556d48354fa01499334a.png     675991410_ThatsaMAGEKNIGHT.png.890db66f64f7b27ef82803bab0fc40fe.png     437287066_2birds1stone2.0.png.30fcff05355ca75ce1fae44168c536b9.png

Lex: Galeforce+double leon is broken. The only thing stopping him is my low amount of bows thanks to using 5 primary bow users.

Nicole: The surprise mvp of my team, she was pretty useless till she got a ice bow but have been one of my best units since then.

Astrea: Once again a great lord. Great in both strength and magic. Bulk is passable as well thanks to Runeswords. Did get all the juna fruits, was lv 27 before that.

Kenton: Very good delete button, probably among my top 5 combat units. A shame he couldn't keep his legacy as the slow myrmidon here.

Evan: Was my first unit to promote, did bench him for a few maps after that, could be even more broken otherwise.

Janet: Dancer/10, Thief/10. Pretty much needed her to steal the boots from god and the black gem in Larry's map.

Condor: Pretty good despite the low skill and speed. Deals huge damage and tankiest armor.

Dexithea: Glass cannon/10, kills everything that challenges her but needs healing a lot. High hp does help a little.

Relina: Pretty bad as a combat unit, rally speed/10.

Elliot: Decent enough with the brave weapons, needed 2 speedwings. But no horse is a bit disappointing.

Eren: My primary rider, turned out decent after promotion.

Roa: Good enough as the secondary mage when Evan is benched. Good with the long ranged tomes as well, till Hellen joined. Probably will be the primary healer now after promotion.

Carter: While not as good as his fellow snipers, the extra range really helps to get rid of some annoying opponents.

Torrid: Primary healer, till Roa tamed a wyvern. Not very good at combat.

Joanne: Reduced a lot of headache for lockpick management. Passable as a backup healer as well.

Oreades: Decent as a combat thief, colossus with his high skill is pretty fun too when it activates. Benched in favor of Alice and Dexi.

Iris: Kind of weak as a mage, and I am afraid of using the holy stone too much. Atleast pretty much invincible against dragons.

Ricky: Secondary healer, passable with the magic axes as well.

Ulysses: Mathipati/10, got benched recently thanks to it breaking. Did perform fine till then.

Joe: Not performing as good as I had hoped, benched during the last few maps.

Fuuma: Primary thief, works well as a backup mage as well.

Nereid: Good as a backup thief, bad as a combat unit. Pretty much needed the promotion to stay relevant.

Derek: Both him and Nereid were pretty similar before promotion, only reason I chose Nereid were thief utility and female merc.

Clint: Not very happy with his performance either, needed the promotion to stay relevant for a short while.

 

Daed.png.d73f903fbdb380b65ee273d7278cf9c4.png     1164242467_Blindthief.png.b9a578a51596c4fc117ec1c792327044.png     1963280831_Tooblind.png.a822a5bbda47853260d4bc85b13faa43.png     1364391680_Whendidyouget1move.png.8d6d208b580028f7934ecbe3380e6465.png

Daedalus: Useless, only redeeming quality is his ok bulk but being an armor hurts him more than the regular armors.

Artemis: Was the backup thief before Fuuma rejoined. Could have used if not for the bad skill and bulk.

Charles: Pretty much forgot he existed for a long time, still worked well in the few maps I used him. The low skill made me drop him in the end.

Kirin: Used as the primary healer for a while, but there were already a lot of staffers who could fight as well.

 

1265388433_IDKwhyItried.png.e209b01088ec87e42577706b5dfdb847.png     336601242_Bowwarrior!.png.ec45ab22fa5021ce388ab4ce62e302d4.png

Katherin: She have been useless since the moment she joined. Don't even know why I bothered to train her at all.

Alice: Couldn't pass a bow focused warrior, replaced Oreades.

Dullahan: Might use as my primary flyer, will replace Torrid.

Hellen: Meteor/10. Just got her, will be my primary long ranged mage from now on.

Leo: Will get him in the current chapter, will likely become a permanent member as well.

Didn't use the rest beyond one or two maps.

Among the ones left, Rody will become a permanent member as well, I went the Lars route it seems, and will likely get Pyron.

Sure! I'd like to see your team. I'll comment on the ones I find most remarkable.

Lex: Galeforce+double leon is broken. The only thing stopping him is my low amount of bows thanks to using 5 primary bow users.

19 speed... Wow, he grew so much better than my Lex.

Nicole: The surprise mvp of my team, she was pretty useless till she got a ice bow but have been one of my best units since then.

That's Nicole in a nutshell, yes.

Astrea: Once again a great lord. Great in both strength and magic. Bulk is passable as well thanks to Runeswords. Did get all the juna fruits, was lv 27 before that.

Kenton: Very good delete button, probably among my top 5 combat units. A shame he couldn't keep his legacy as the slow myrmidon here.

Yeah, I see he's pretty fast. What a shame.

"Steal the boots from God" is such a funny sentence.

Condor: Pretty good despite the low skill and speed. Deals huge damage and tankiest armor.

Holy shit, that condor, though! Like Lex, she grew way better for you...

Dexithea: Glass cannon/10, kills everything that challenges her but needs healing a lot. High hp does help a little.

Relina: Pretty bad as a combat unit, rally speed/10.

That's Relina, all right.

Elliot: Decent enough with the brave weapons, needed 2 speedwings. But no horse is a bit disappointing.

Eren: My primary rider, turned out decent after promotion.

Eren too? Goddamnit, why did everyone grow better for you? Did Kirin just steal everybody else's luck?

...Actually, y'know, that does add up.

Roa: Good enough as the secondary mage when Evan is benched. Good with the long ranged tomes as well, till Hellen joined. Probably will be the primary healer now after promotion.

Carter: While not as good as his fellow snipers, the extra range really helps to get rid of some annoying opponents.

Torrid: Primary healer, till Roa tamed a wyvern. Not very good at combat.

The capped strength looks great till you notice 12 speed. Oof...

Joanne: Reduced a lot of headache for lockpick management. Passable as a backup healer as well.

Oreades: Decent as a combat thief, colossus with his high skill is pretty fun too when it activates. Benched in favor of Alice and Dexi.

Iris: Kind of weak as a mage, and I am afraid of using the holy stone too much. Atleast pretty much invincible against dragons.

Iris is wonderful for the two/three maps after she joins as a nuke with the holy stone, then she gets benched. She's basically FE12 Tiki, except instead of joining right after dragons stop disappearing, she joins right before they start existing. Much smarter design, there.

Ricky: Secondary healer, passable with the magic axes as well.

Ulysses: Mathipati/10, got benched recently thanks to it breaking. Did perform fine till then.

Joe: Not performing as good as I had hoped, benched during the last few maps.

Fuuma: Primary thief, works well as a backup mage as well.

Nereid: Good as a backup thief, bad as a combat unit. Pretty much needed the promotion to stay relevant.

Derek: Both him and Nereid were pretty similar before promotion, only reason I chose Nereid were thief utility and female merc.

Oof... Yeah, that's pretty typical for Derek. His stats are great, but not that much greater, and Nereid has thief utility.

Clint: Not very happy with his performance either, needed the promotion to stay relevant for a short while.

Daedalus: Useless, only redeeming quality is his ok bulk but being an armor hurts him more than the regular armors.

This guy, I swear. You'd think being a Hector in a game where armor movement isn't buffed would work to his benefit, but the man's too much like Hector in a game with stronger enemies.

Artemis: Was the backup thief before Fuuma rejoined. Could have used if not for the bad skill and bulk.

Charles: Pretty much forgot he existed for a long time, still worked well in the few maps I used him. The low skill made me drop him in the end.

Kirin: Used as the primary healer for a while, but there were already a lot of staffers who could fight as well.

I like the detail that she got a movement level too. What the hell is with this woman...

1265388433_IDKwhyItried.png.e209b01088ec87e42577706b5dfdb847.png     336601242_Bowwarrior!.png.ec45ab22fa5021ce388ab4ce62e302d4.png

Katherin: She have been useless since the moment she joined. Don't even know why I bothered to train her at all.

I mean, she gets Rody. Better than Daedalus!

Alice: Couldn't pass a bow focused warrior, replaced Oreades.

Dullahan: Might use as my primary flyer, will replace Torrid.

People just don't give these two a chance. I'll admit, neither did I, before. But if you look beyond their shaky speed, the two of them have far more going for them to compensate than, say, Elliot does.

Hellen: Meteor/10. Just got her, will be my primary long ranged mage from now on.

Leo: Will get him in the current chapter, will likely become a permanent member as well.

Didn't use the rest beyond one or two maps.

Among the ones left, Rody will become a permanent member as well, I went the Lars route it seems, and will likely get Pyron.

Lars route, huh? Be careful. If you killed Pyron in chapter 18, it might be impossible to get him now. If you didn't kill him then, however, don't worry.

Yep, she was amazing in my run. Armor movement with bow lock was the only reason she didn't become one of the top guys early game. The moment I promoted her, she became invincible.

Yes, and dragon weakness doesn't help when you don't get to use the stat boost from the dragon stones.

Nope, I couldn't kill him in 18, hence "steal the boots from God." He didn't move from his starting position in my run, so took a long time to reach him while avoiding Mandrake and Gill who were rushing me. And I had this amazing idea of keeping Gudgai and co. alive, which made it even harder. Needed to use a dragon vein in last turn just so Gill and Pyron doesn't kill anyone.

  Yep, she was amazig in my run. Armor movement with bow lock was the only reason she didn't become one of the top guys early game. The moment I promoted her, she became invincible.

Well, good on you! She was pretty good in my first run too, but afterwards I never could make her work again, unfortunately.

Yeah, like why is he so bad...a lot of my guys have low speed in my team but Daed seems to get affected by it a lot more than them.

I think it's because at least the likes of Elliot, Iskander, Alice and Dullahan arrive with solid bases outside of their speed and excellent weapon ranks to make use of the broken legendaries, while people like Lex, Evan, Hawk and Hellen (among others but those are the first that come to mind) have special perks and utility to compensate for the slowness. Then there's the armors (other than Clint, who is actually fast), who in this game, unlike others, are legitimately tanky and have skills to patch up their shaky movement.

Daedalus just serves no purpose. He's a mediocre tank, a mediocre damage-dealer, no utility skills, no support skills, he'll only ever have a good rank in axes, he requires two promo items even though by the time he arrives everyone else is already joining at least at tier 2... Even a good Daedalus with due investment and good gains feels like little more than the most unremarkable armor knight in the game. In a game ful of super interesting and unique units, Daedalus is a really boring, mediocre, forgettable unit that would fit right in regular GBAFE... mostly because, well, he kinda is in GBAFE. He's just called Hector there.

...Honestly, the real problem with him is that he's forced. Why is he forced? He sucks! Every time I want to bench him, but I can't...!

Yeah, too bad she got it too late. Could have convinced me if it happened early.

Oof...

Nope, I couldn't kill him in 18, hence "steal the boots from God." He didn't move from his starting position in my run, so took a long time to reach him while avoiding Mandrake and Gill who were rushing me.

He didn't move? Hmm... could be the difficulty, or maybe you were on an older version of the game. I've always played it on hard, so if you were on normal, that could be one of the changes, I wouldn't know.

And I had this amazing idea of keeping Gudgai and co. alive, which made it even harder. Needed to use a dragon vein in last turn just so Gill and Pyron doesn't kill anyone.

Hahahahahaha... Well, that's okay, keeping Gudgai alive is a commendable goal indeed.
