@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  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.

Obviously, don't read the thread if you don't want spoilers on sales information and such, because that's the whole point of this thread.

 

http://www.twitlonge.../show/n_1smt5hv

http://nintendoevery...0-sell-through/

 

So the game sold fairly well, with quite a few people getting the special edition. Also, it seems that the Hoshido route (Birthright) was more popular in Japan, presumably because the game is easier and closer in content and style to Awakening. I'm guessing they will take this as a sign that they should continue along the Hoshido side of things and NOT the Nohr side of things, which is bad news for anyone who preferred the approach that Nohr route took or whatever (cough me, based on what I've seen).

 

Anyone have any thoughts/insight on this? Did it meet your expectations, does it sound about right, did you expect Hoshido to sell better? That kinda thing. XP

Honestly, despite my issues with the game, I can see why it is selling. Waifus. *shot*

sadface still can't remember why you don't exactly have a 3DS, especially when you had access to one for a little bit. having somewhat poor memory is lame, I guess

RIP Fire Emblem as a strategy game, hello waifu matchmaker 20XX. If Nohr sells well in the U.S, Nintendo might create both strategy options again.

 

I think the Hoshido route sold better simply because it was closer related to the culture of Japan (obviously) so more people were inclined to buy that one. Aside from the conformation that Hoshido was easier, I don't think anyone following that conformation was someone would would actually play Hoshido because it was easier (without playing Nohr).

you mean confirmation, right?

 

it's hard to say why people got Hoshido, it might be because of what you said, or the character designs, or preferring "good" over bad... it's a shame but you can't really know for sure, and the thing is that because of that, IS can interpret it however they like. that's why "voting with your wallets" is a flawed idea in the sense that you can't designate what you vote for or how you feel about something. you can buy a crappy game in a series because you want the series to continue, but that doesn't mean you want it to continue in that direction... (hmm, Sonic?) or in this case I might buy both Hoshido and Nohr but does that essentially make my vote null? how can I show a preference for Nohr's gameplay without just skipping out on Hoshido entirely? buy it a few weeks later?

 

idk man :\

Yes, I did. I was being a phone pleb and I'm awful at typing. Autocorrect is a bitch sometimes, especially when it corrects to the wrong one.

lol it's fine I was just making sure

 

I'm weird and try not to assume stuff even when all logic points to a certain answer because I think I could somehow be wrong anyway, so I really was just asking lol
