@  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.
@  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

So I know many of us are going to play both sides (despite some of us being upset that the sides are split into two games) but let's say you could only pick one or you had to decisively pick one to play first over the other (as opposed to playing both "at the same time", or trading off chapter-by-chapter or whatever). Which side would you pick?

 

Personally, the Hoshido side feels a little bit more appealling to me; perhaps I just like the character designs and less intense premise a little bit better, but I think if I had to choose, I'd go with the Nohr side. While I do like easygoing games, it sounds like Nohr is going to offer more of a traditional and hardcore Fire Emblem experience, and after Awakening that is something I would definitely like to try/go back to, as opposed to getting something closer to "more of the same" with Hoshido.

 

How about you guys? Will you choose "#TeamHoshido" or "#TeamNohr" (yes this is a thing on Twitter)

I'm probably going to start with nor. Obviously I'll be playing all three routes (assuming I have the extra money for the two that will be dlc), but nohr looks like it's going to be more fun.

Just because I always like playing the "good guys", gonna say Hoshido, at least for my first run. They did say it would be an easier route though, which kinda makes me not want to, but I'll play it for the plot anyway. XD

 

And, if it is two versions, I might have to consider which one more deeply, or just get both...

Yeah but I think like Awakening, you can probably handicap yourself a tiny bit by choosing not to grind etc. which should prevent you from totally steamrolling the game. And honestly there are usually difficulty modes involved too so I'm thinking that difficulty could be factored into both difficulty, casual/classic mode, and the route you take (with a route's "normal mode" naturally being more difficult than the other route's "normal mode", for instance).

 

And indeed, it's not confirmed that the west will get two versions, but I think the easiest solution for us FE fans is to just save up money and chuck it at Nintendo/IS so we can get all the routes XD

I know this was strikethrough'd, but... hard mode

 

seriously, lunatic mode sounds a bit masochistic. I am going to start on normal mode as usual and enjoy the story. I think I only ever STARTED on hard mode once, for FE9, because I don't even know why (maybe I was arrogant after beating FE8 and thought I was good at the game: well, not like FE9 hard mode was that hard, since I beat it when I was still relatively young).

Judging from the trailer, it sounds like the conflict is Nohr's fault to begin with, so I can't really sympathize with them (it's like being able to play for Daein under Ashnard or the Black Fang under Nergal, when your leader is obviously a psychopathic mass murderer). Gameplay-wise, the Nohr side does seem to be more akin to FE8's Ephraim route.

I usually start on Normal, but I started FE10 on Easy and FEA on Hard. FE10 Easy and FEA Hard ended up being about the same difficulty imo.

Nohr, for sure. I'm incredibly interested in playing as the overly aggressive or "bad dudes" in a Fire Emblem game. I also love anti-heroes, so this is kinda a dream come true.

Honestly, probably both. Save up my pennies for two copies of the game, pick one route each haha.

 

Nintendo have finally caught me out. The amount of money I'll probably spend on these wiith all the DLC and such to come is obscene.

No need to buy two copies. The route you don't choose will be available as dlc supposedly.

I kinda question this, true or not. If that's going to be the case, why not just make them one game? Oh well, I'll probably end up playing both routes one way or the other. 

 

Can FE:RD Hector Lunatic mode please be a thing. I would play that to my death.

Only reasons I can think of for them being seperate like that is because a) Nintendo needs the money right now and B) because they're different to the point where they can be considered two games. Either way I don't like it very much.

Not supposedly, it will be. It's pretty much the other route at half price. Too lazy to go check for the exact values though. It's the same price as the third route DLC.

Nohr for me. It has some cool characters like Marx and said to have a complex plot and hard difficulty. Hoshido looks pretty interesting though. I really hope when IF comes over here in the west, maybe they will package all of the sides together into one game or something. :c
