@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

This is self explanatory, You all rate the Character of the Day on a scale 1-10, but this series will have the ratings separated in four categories: Main Game, Postgame, Characterization, and Personal.



Anyway, get voting!

QUOTE

Main Game-This will address how well the character performs and contributes in the main story campaign.

Postgame-This will tackle how much usefulness characters have in the postgame/DLC content. Be it through being an active unit, supporting unit, or how good a parent the character can be for the 2nd gen.

Characterization-This will be how much you liked the character in the supports or story.

Personal- This category will be how how was YOUR experience with the character, like getting RNG Blessed or Screwed, the recruitment chapter they had, etc.

Favourite Marriage Pairing: Should be obvious



Day: 1: Chrom
Day 2: Tactician
Day 3: Lissa
Day 4: Frederick
Day 5: Sully
Day 6: Virion
Day 7: Stahl
Day 8: Vaike
Day9: Starcraft Miriel
Day 10: Sumia

Day 13: Lon'Qu
Main Game: 7/10 - solid unit I guess, comes early enough... kinda weak and dies easily though I think, tbh he wouldn't really turn out great for me.
Post Game: 6/10 - felt like he slowed down and uh idk... parents seem less good for post-game in general since they take longer to max out than kids (i.e. you can have kids max out stats at level 10, promote them, and they get a lot of experience and are easier to max out again, whereas parents take more levels and are slower overall idk if that makes sense but whatevz)
Characterization: 7/10 cliche but has a couple interesting points, actually has a slightly dark backstory which is somewhat rare in Awakening (it's all relative) though it's not fleshed out much but whatever.
Personal: 8/10, somewhat likeable, obvious cliche but whatever
Marriage: Meriel or whoever (the mage girl, sorry it feels like it's been forever since I played Awakening) because of some hilarious supports. though in general the dude is a chick magnet since he's afraid of chicks and that just makes them want to get him even more lol (Cordelia is also solid)... uh stat-wise idk, I only find merit in how funny or interesting the supports are which even that I usually don't care for haha

Day 13: Lon'Qu
Main Game: 4/10. In a game full of units capable of striking twice, hitting hard, and tanking, it's hard for me to justify picking a character which only does 2 of the 3. He comes on a chapter you'll need to throw everybody you have in a shell game to get two fragile units back into formation, followed by a map where you have to wall off so many sections by physically keeping a unit alive and protecting the area, so he'll have uses. He generally fades late game though as that fragility lets him down.
Post Game: Abstain
Characterization: 3/10. Really, only one support really helps him out. Damn you exposition bot Cherche. But really, that's a pretty cool conversation and explains a tonne about his character.
Personal: 3/10. Stab...stab...stab...crap. (Restarts level). If the AI didn't insistently suicide man after man, hoping to force you restart (and instead treated this like a war game), he'd be better. But as is, he'll either kill everything, get drone jammed, or take a couple bad bounces. My luck has been the third option.
Marriage: Abstain

Day 13: Lon'Qu
Main Game: 7/10 slow to start but he's worth it in the long run. Going straight for swordmaster to pick up swordfaire makes him better, then slidng him on over to assassin for more strength.
Post Game: 8/10 still use him a lot. Low strength cap is annoying but hey thats what Limit Breaker is for right
Characterization: 7/10 Kind of a cliche silent tough guy but his fear of women never ceases to be hilarious.
Personal: 8/10 Always really liked him, but I was always one to like Myrmidons/Swordmasters.
Marriage: First playthru, Nowi. It was just so cute. Plus having Astra on Nah was epic. Last two playthrus, Cordella. I use him to pass on Swordfaire to Severa so she's strong early on.
