Othin Posted March 18 Share Posted March 18 We're three months into the year now, and after all the buzz about Rearmed Heroes and the release of Engage, things seem to be settling back into a similar pattern to last year. Another Engage banner sometime this year seems likely, but they seem to be taking their time with it. In the meantime, we can expect Fallen Heroes in May, CYL7 in August, and a continuation of the regular New Heroes rotation. What are you expecting? One possible reference point is the 2022 appearances of the games on the regular rotation: February: Binding Blade March: Thracia April: Genealogy June: Blazing Blade July: Shadows of Valentia September: Three Houses October: Awakening November: Shadow Dragon / Mystery December: Fates If the next few months follow the rotation, we can expect Binding Blade in April, then the two Jugdral games in June/July. In that case, the last four months will probably have some sequence of Engage, Three Houses, Blazing Blade, and... who even knows. Maybe they'll jump ahead to Archanea or Fates, or squeeze Shadows of Valentia or Awakening even further, or do something else entirely. Over the past two years, the June/July and September-December banners have all involved OCs and a resulting second demote, so we can probably expect the same thing to continue, with several of them likely to double up on Ascended+Rearmed. Meanwhile, the past few months have alternated between Rearmed and Ascended, so if that continues, April will be Ascended. If we get an FE6 Ascended next month, the two most prominent options are Lilina and Fae. Both have already gotten legendary versions, but Celica shows that doesn't necessarily rule a character out from getting an Ascended. It could decrease the likelihood, though. After them, there's Fir, Sophia, and Igrene. Lilina and Sophia have the further complications of their bride versions less than a year ago, and in Lilina's case, featuring her signature special. Of course, they could also go for someone lower-ranked. For actual new(-ish) FE6 characters, the ten who scored best on CYL7, in order, are Wolt, Dorothy, Elffin, Noah, Ogier, Zeiss, Lance, Karel, Murdock, and Bors. CYL6 had the same top ten characters, but different ordering past the first two - Elffin, in particular, has jumped up a lot. Murdock and Dorothy in particular seem like strong guesses, but Murdock has defied expectations already - much like Glen has continued to do with this month's FE8 banner. So who knows. Like the past few New Heroes banners, the next FE6 banner could very well be themed around a specific nation. Dorothy and Elffin could pull towards an Etruria focus, which might be rounded out with Saul as the demote, Douglas as the GHB, and an Ascended pick of either Lilina or Cecilia. Alternatively, a Bern focus might involve Murdock, Zeiss, Elen, Ascended Guinivere, and... hmm. Are we even missing any other Bern characters? Karel is recruited from a village in Bern, if that's worth anything. But Etruria seems like the most prominent option at the moment. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
