@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  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.

So many years (3 years, wow it actually hasn't been that long) ago I made a topic about weapon forging in Fire Emblem. It's been a long time since then (not really), and a few games have come out (like 2 that even have forging). Thus, I felt like posting a similar topic (really not the same one at all) and seeing how things have changed. Here's how forging has looked over the years:

 

Spoiler

 

With all that out of the way, the discussion prompt: What game has your favorite forging system? What's your favorite weapon you've ever forged?

For me, Path of Radiance had the best system for one reason. In case it wasn't made very clear in the descriptions, that reason is COLORS. Due to that, I don't really have one weapon I've ever forged that stands out as my favorite. I would often make weapons specifically for units and then make them match the color. Like a red Throwing Axe I made for Kieran, or the golden Silver Axe (wait what) that made Titania destroy the endgame. There's a lot of great ways to forge and things that can be forged, so what are your favorites? 

 

 

also if someone could tell me how to put a name on a spoiler tag, I've been trying to figure it out for awhile but never wanted to ask. Thanks.

Why is PoR's your favorite when RD's is literally just better PoR's forging lol. My favorite is RD's because of the COLORand coins made forging a tad more exciting. COLORreally put life into your creations which I loved and allowed for you to see weapons in absurd COLORS. 

 

Shoutouts to SD's forging allowing you to create absurd broken weapons of amazingness. And shoutouts to Fates for having the worst forging ever.

To be honest it's because I have yet to play/beat RD. (I did play it, but it was a few chapters on Silence's copy of the game) so I didn't really know what the forging was like outside of what I saw Silence do. But, if it really is just PoR but better, sure, that's my favorite lol.

 

And shoutouts to Fates for having the worst forging ever.

 

I at least tried to be a little less direct by calling it convoluted.

I was going to comment that RD had colors too but someone beat me to it.

 

Colors is nice. Would be nice to have it again. I didn't play around much with PoR's forging system, though I do know that said system is what made me stop watching an LP. Let's just say, the LPer had dirty thoughts with that sword. >_>

Fates is by far the worst forging system(I mean at least they went all out and had the worst everything). RD is also my favorite btw. Most freedom.

I honestly never cared much for the forging in any FE game, as whether there are colors or not there's absurdly little customization in the end and ultimately I view anything that isn't indestructible as a disposable. I also just found it really silly how the colors applied to the blades rather than the hilts or handles...


I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.
