@  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

I've been bored a lot lately, and have felt like having a FE debate. I'd be willing to be FE6-7, and FE9-10.

Hmm, I'm most comfortable with FE10 of those, but I haven't played HM in a long time and I don't think there are any enemy stats for other modes. Also, it's a huge game to debate with a lot of details. I guess FE7, since I've just played LHM and I'm working through HHM right now.

^What a coincidence, same here. Um, how about LHM, HHM, ranks?

I'm probably picking Geitz, despite type we do.

If we're talking efficiency, then Erk easily beats Geitz, even in HHM. So I guess I'll switch to Raven?

Also, Nino is garbage in efficiency runs. It IS debatable between her, Wil, Karla, and Wallace, though.

Weird, I guess I'll pick Geitz then, what format do you want to debate in?

Where'd you get the tierlist? And why the hell is Marcus so high? I would understand FE6 HM, but in FE7 HHM he one-rounds everyone.

efficiency? if you focused almost primarily on 11 other characters, even in hard modes, by the time you get Nino they're stats are inflated to the point where its not really that hard at all. while training her up, keeping her alive and getting her a kill a turn is litterally the only think that requires any thought and should only slow you down a very little amount. especially if you give her the afa drops to get the boost in exp gain, she will be even stat wise with your party before she is level wise, with room to grow even more. by then her addition to your efficiency largely outweigh her negetive impact to your efficiency while leveling her up

this is one of the primary reasons im looking forward to my guide being posted on this site. i can't wait to put stuff in the reader feedback and scores portion. i rate Nino 10 out of 10, but i know im in the minority and can't wait to see the feedback about her and others as well

HHM enemies don't mess around, and by the time you get to Nino, she's a hard unit to raise. Even after you waste an abundant amount of turns, she'll still be falling behind due to her 6 movement. IIRC, you get a bit less EXP in HHM, and all Afa's Drops gives you is some extra boosts in growths, nothing to do with EXP at all.

She's not like Heath where you can baby the unit for two chapters and you'd be fine. It's going to take at least four chapters of babying to get her up to speed with everyone else and by that time, your on chapter 30 with only a couple of chapters left of the game. She doesn't have hard mode bonuses( if she did then she would be much more worthy of training) and doesn't even have a mount. Also by that time, you have Sain/Kent and Heath/other flier with great stats and movement going around, Nino won't be able to keep up.

Nino would be good if you don't care for tactics or efficiency, but really the only good thing she has going for her is her stats, which takes a while for her to reach that point, which is most likely near the end of the game.
3/10.

That's the thing- your entire party is so good that she is miles below anyone else.

QUOTE

while training her up, keeping her alive and getting her a kill a turn is litterally the only think that requires any thought and should only slow you down a very little amount.

Like we both said, everyone else is WAY better than her, and you've certainly failed to show how she contributes. Your team by this point is likely largely high movement units and guys like Pent who are Nino but way better. You do have to go out of your way and slow down to let her get kills, and you get nothing in return for it. Also, you do have to think- you're trying to beat chapters as quickly as possible. Sure, you can just move people, but you could clear chapters WAY faster.

QUOTE

especially if you give her the afa drops to get the boost in exp gain, she will be even stat wise with your party before she is level wise, with room to grow even more. by then her addition to your efficiency largely outweigh her negetive impact to your efficiency while leveling her up

Afa's Drops don't affect EXP gain, just a slight boost to growths which, after all of her level ups, amounts to one or two extra points in each stat. And what does she add? Let's say she gets to 20/1, which won't happen because it slows us down a ton to do that, and we even give her the Afa's Drops. She has 16 MAG and 21 SPD. Level 13 Pent has 20 MAG and 20 SPD. Except that he got there by speeding us up while she got there by killing our turn count. Oh, and he has A staves. And 3 DEF and 2-3 HP. And more SKL. And more RES. And, at worst, one less LUK.

Tell me why Nino is better than Pent. Go on, do it. And I don't just mean say "she's worth it in the end." Explain to me how her contributions are worth the investment. Better yet, show me. Use Nino instead of Pent and beat my turncounts in those chapters. I don't think you understand how much she slows you down if you feed her kills and how little she helps afterwards. Look up dondon151's videos to see how fast efficiency can be. He even does it with everyone's growths set to 0! He DOES rig some things with the RNG, but when everyone has their base stats...

Falcon: ABABAB?
SF. I promise you it's very accurate- those people talk tier lists to death. Marcus, though, does deserve it. Why? BECAUSE he one-rounds everyone. This is efficiency, so we don't really care about EXP. Sain and Kent are as high as they are because people figured out you can make one of them come out of LHM at like 16/1 and be Marcus with long-term use.

Why would you promote such a good unit like Sain or Kent at level 16? Marcus long term is a joke, he becomes bad near chapter 18 in HHM, to the point where he's slowing you down more than he's making you move faster. Sain and Kent have the long term stats to keep you through the game.

she only slows you down cause she has 1 less movement than the others. all things considered, thats not that much. at 1 kill a turn it really doesnt take long at all for her to get up to speed (lets face it, the 2 chapters you have for that are really not that difficult). by the end of cog of destiny she should be on par stat wise. by victory or death she is so overpowered that she can win the map with just her and a healer following her with a physic on normal modes and on hard modes her and hector cut through the chapter like its nothing. having a unit that overpowered for the final few chapters makes them WAY easier

so yes, she is "worth it in the end" because its not hard to train her in the first place.

Marcus is usable (not good, usable) through the entire game. I think you're thinking of FE6 Marcus who is only very good for about eight chapters.

Four levels does NOT make much of a difference, and if you can have them there from the moment they show up in HHM...

Also, in order to have people with similar combat parameters to Marcus by the ninth chapter of HHM you have to have, say, Lowen at 20/1. In eight chapters? I don't think so. Further, Marcus has 16 STR and 12 SPD. He's doubling by far most of the enemies in 17x (chapter 18 enemy stats seem to be missing)- missing a few pirates and an archer- and of course Fargus. It takes 24 ATK to 2HKO the toughest pirates. Even if he's STR screwed, he gets EVERY enemy (except Fargus) with a Steel Sword. Of course, I don't see why Marcus couldn't be a higher level.

Raven needs four levels to do the same thing, if I'm calculating HHM bonuses correctly. But then Hector need TEN to 2HKO, and even then he may double just about nothing. That 16/1 Kent I brought up just barely misses the toughest ones even if he got the LHM energy ring. That said, he may have gotten another point of STR by now. Sain is doing the same thing as Marcus. Lowen needs to be 20/6. Eliwood needs to be promoted. Lyn needs to be promoted and then some. Florina is borderline on the necessary strength once she promotes, but of course she doesn't have the weapon rank, IIRC.

So only two of our units can realistically match up to Marcus's combat and only one of them can match his huge versatility and movement. Being tied for best unit (or MAYBE being ever so slightly behind and only taking second, which is arguable because Marcus has better durability) is so bad. I would much rather use my horde of not-1RKOing not-8 MOV units over him.

Now, let's look at chapter 21. The toughest non-boss in this chapter possible would be an 11 DEF 31 HP 10 AS Wyvern Rider. A level 11 Marcus borderline ORKOs with an Iron Axe. Mind you, the lowest end of this spectrum can be ORKOd by him with an Iron Axe with nothing but a single SPD point over his bases. An unlucky Marcus here is 8HKOd. Let's see what level Hector would need to be...

The required 14 AS is achieved via promoting. Oops. Well, I guess he can jump up to a Steel Axe for the 12 MT (with WTA) since he won't be doubling. So, he needs 15 STR to 2HKO. Hey, that's at level 14. Funnily enough, it's also Marcus's base STR.

Shall I go on?

Edit: Yes, level 11 is inflated for Marcus, but the point was more that he can do more than Hector later than you said he was contributing negatively, and that even at base level after that time he's still basically Hector on a horse.
