@  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.

Aw...it's so cute...I just want to take it home with m--

 

Wait.  Are we talking about the spambot or the new characters in FE Heroes?

Say what you want about the chibis...but the Black Knight and Nephenee's cut in art is pretty good.

oh, the art is great

 

I am quite pleased with Nephenee's and TBK's art

 

but "cute" still wouldn't really be my word choice to describe them, XP

Say that to Nephenee's face again.  I dare you.

 

Totally not bias because I love the fact that Nephenee's art works so well with the Summoner Support background.

well, I'm generally just not to uh, compliment art in that way in the first place

 

but if I had to, I'd say she's closer to hot than cute?

 

somehow 'cute' has more of a childish or demeaning connotation to me, even though it doesn't have to

 

rather than cute, i'd say it's super well-drawn and brings out Nephenee's charm

 

which is probably not helping poor Seraph, who can't seem to get his hands on Nephenee AFAIK... (he got like 4 Oscar's though >>; poor dude)

I think we're hitting a discussion on the connotative meaning of different words for "nice" art:

 - Cute can certainly have diminutive connotations.  

 - Beautiful often has connotations of "class" and elegance. 

 - Hot would imply something along the lines of a sexual attraction. 

 

That said, I typically default to cute in this scenario as I think you'd associate many of Nephenee's endearing traits with a more cute emotion.  Though the real sentiment is that her art is lovely and it meshes amazingly well with the background of the Summoner Support.

 

I feel bad for Seraph.  If memory serves, he was the one with the Nephenee avatar on the site?  I mean, this is probably the best shot he'll get at Nephenee (as her stats and capabilities aren't good enough to warrant a Hero Fest focus on her) and it's a 50/50 shot at the Focus % (at the best of times...that is, if you're purely pulling on blue orbs). 

 

I've heard the stochastic method for finding the 90th percentile for landing a Nephenee was spitting out about 226 Orbs.  I would have to assume it's much worse as it didn't seem like the calculation considered the fact that Oscar/Nephenee were both splitting the blue focus (90% chance of landing an Elincia just opening red summons was about 180-190)...so I could easily see that heading up to the 400-450 Orb requirement region to land a Nephenee 90% of the time.  Could be wrong though as I don't really delve into the mechanics of the game's summoning engine all that much.

 

What I'm trying to say is that it's damn hard to pull a Nephenee and it doesn't seem like the odds are getting better anytime soon. That is, unless they decide to kick her down to 4 stars.

 

Silver lining is that if you whale for that, it at least doing so prevents any other addictions from draining your wallet.

@bolded statement, should have just said so :P

 

but yeah, nitpicks

 

I'm just not one to say something is cute

 

and yes, he has had a Nephenee avatar for a long long while now, I think

 

I usually don't pull the orb colors I want, nevermind the actual characters, so >>;

 

400 orbs for a 90% chance, ugh, I'm guessing Seraph has probably already spent as many as he reasonably could, lol

yeah seems like it, and you probably have a point with the Hero Fest thing. the real problem is just that she shares blue orbs with Oscar, cutting that % in half is a real bummer

this seems like a weird kinda silver lining... either way the wallet is drained, no? ><; lol
