@  Fire Blazer : (06 February 2019 - 04:34 AM) Cardfight Vanguard X? huh
@  Mercurius : (05 February 2019 - 10:49 PM) THE ONE SWITCH GAME I WANTED TO HAPPEN THE SECOND I LEARNED IT WAS REGION FREE PRE-RELEASE OMFG 2019 IS GIVING ME EVERY SINGLE REASON TO HAVE BOUGHT IT WOULD PAY ONLINE FOR 10/10
@  Fire Blazer : (03 February 2019 - 10:08 PM) plz no tumblrweed lol
@  acceptance : (02 February 2019 - 06:08 PM) (Like a tumbleweed, but more opinionated)
@  acceptance : (02 February 2019 - 06:08 PM) *Tumblrweed*
@  kirant : (02 February 2019 - 05:44 PM) *Tumbleweed*
@  Elwood : (02 February 2019 - 05:35 PM) *Tumbleweed*
@  Fire Blazer : (31 January 2019 - 12:11 AM) (silence)
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:55 PM) tho personally I guess I'm not too afraid of responding to old messages anyway sometimes, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) to have discussions where people respond at their own convenience
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) forums could still be used but we'd have to make a bit of an effort I guess
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) I agree with Mage Girl/Cero/Elwood/Kirant lolol
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:15 AM) And yeah missing stuff on discord is easy depending on when most people are online
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:11 AM) I think there are just fewer people interested in taking part on forums since most information is already accesible trough the many means.
@  Mercurius : (09 January 2019 - 02:46 AM) Well, at the same time I also don't frequent most of the discord channels I'm a part of, though.
@  Mercurius : (09 January 2019 - 02:46 AM) I used to prefer forums but I've been spoiled by the "everything at the same hub" thing...
@  kirant : (06 January 2019 - 07:39 PM) I'm of pretty similar opinion...it's easy to miss a good discussion on Discord (which plays much more into a "stream of consciousness" feel).
@  Elwood : (04 January 2019 - 10:42 PM) I prefer forums because they keep everything more organized. With Discord you can have 3 conversations jumbled together and not know what anyone is talking about. It's also way easier to miss stuff.
@  Cero : (31 December 2018 - 07:23 AM) mhmm, its rough
@  Mage Girl : (29 December 2018 - 11:33 AM) I feel like a lot of forums have much less traffic because most of us who appreciate them are much busier than we used to be, and I don't think the younger generation is too keen on finding forums anymore

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
