No! You’re not supposed to agree with me you saboteur!

Now I just picture you having that “Just as planned” face as you typed your post...

The one time I didn’t want to see rainbow orbs/get a 5* Servant and I ended up getting spooked by Scheherazade (could have at least been an NP2 Summer Tammy) while trying to get one copy of Kiyo Lancer to NP5 her. Whelp no NP5 Kiyo Lancer for me, guess she got mad at me for focusing my attention on Summer Tammy who came home with little to no effort. It really doesn’t help that all the other gold servants I got were all off banner and were already at NP5 to begin with...

I think your Skewed Luck is rubbing off on me DarkFlare...

Post upgrades she's not terrible and does have a viable niche in the form Anti-King/Queen. My main beef with her is that she's trying to be an offensive DPS while trying to be a support at the same time. Her skills synergize well with each other, but overall conflicts in what she's built to do and having the worse Atk of any 5* in the game doesn't help either especially when it comes to her niche.

I'm pretty sure Male Byleth will be on a separate banner since you will be able to get him for free if you redeem your purchase of Three Houses through your My Nintendo account. It'd be kind of stupid if had to do all this, yet were able to get him for free through Tempest/GHB without needing to buy the game.

But hey since you know gacha is gacha, maybe spending around $60 for a free copy of M!Byleth isn't such a bad deal after all. At least you'd get a game out of it instead of the amount of salt you'd probably get if you spent that money on orbs and getting nothing.

Oh, today we get the 30SQ if we logged in the whole week. Imma pull on the Agartha banner just to get Columbus out of the way

What the hell? You're telling me that getting a 5* over a 3* is somehow considered bad luck to you? This is nothing more than just humble brag---

Was able to get Summer Tammy in one multi who was the only Summer Servant I was missing last year. Good thing too since now I can save the rest of my quartz for Summer Kiyo's rate up next week so I can NP5 her.

edit: so there's no more card slot limit?

If you're talking about Servant/CE slot expansions then I believe we have to wait till the next download milestone which has Merlin in it. Assuming it's the same as JP, we'll be having our inventories increased from 300 to 350 for both Servants and CEs and then again to 450 during the 3rd anniversary. Though I don't know if we'll ever get anymore expansion slots for the Second Archive...

I've noticed that you tend to get 5*s with very few resources spent, but it's usually a spook/not the one you wanted.

...I can't tell if that's a blessing or a curse...

Hoping for Void Shiki, but my chances of even getting a new Servant was really small anyways. As long as it wasn't Vanilla Jeanne I would have been content with the result. Regardless I'm more than happy to walk away with NP3 Arthur and NP2 Summer Altria, afterwards I was also able to summon Holmes in 120 quartz.

Summer re-run starts on July 12th btw with Summer 2 most likely starting afterwards as it was teased alongside the rerun announcement.

Demon King Nobunaga animations


Starts off with the appearance of her Archer self then similar to Kama, she progressively ages with each ascension with new battle animations to accompany her "adult" form. It's good to know that even as an Avenger, Nobu is still a dork during her first two stages at least.

EDIT: This Nobu is actually a combination of all the forms of Nobu. First ascension is her normal Archer self, with the second ascension actually being male (Avenger Nobu's gender is listed as unknown) which is supposed to reference her time as "The Fool of Owari", and the third ascension depicting her as female once again while portraying her as the brutal Japanese Warlord at the peak of her rise as the "Demon King of the Sixth Heaven".

It's supposed to be her "adult" self. This Nobu is the one that went down in History as the brutal unifier of Japan who made her title "Demon King of the Sixth Heaven" famous across the land and got rid of anyone who didn't agree with her ideals let alone see eye to eye.

I'd like to think that Archer Nobu is the younger self during her "Fool of Owari" days hence her dramatic and hammy personality.

All the Statesmen event also happened during the second anniversary back in JP, so it's basically right on time even more so with July 4th coming up.

Along with the event, we'll also be getting an encore of the Memorial battles and a free Anniversary CE (selection is determined by story progress) with more events being announced during the AX panel on July 6th.

In the JP side Guda Guda 4: Endgame was also announced recently with it starting most likely after the stream tomorrow.

----------

Guda Guda 4: Endgame Servants

5* Maou Nobunaga (Avenger)


4* Welfare Nagao Kagetora/Uesugi Kenshin (Lancer)


3* Mori Nagayoshi (Berserker)

So Rokkr Sieges is out...and wtf, I'm actually having fun again with this game....!? It's not the proper raid mode that I wanted, but it's a step in the right direction. Now I wish there was actually more emphasis on the co-op aspect as it only affects the bonus damage done at the end.

Also why the hell does this so-called "cooperative" game mode still have a competitive ranking system? Albeit it's only a small amount of feathers, but can IS seriously lay off with rewards being gated through ranking for like 5 minutes?

Lakshmi is a support Saber with a plethora of additional effects on her skills that buff a single ally (invincibility, with a chance of HP regen, damage cut) or the entire party (Atk buff with a chance of star gen and crit strength), but said effects are chance based (60% to proc). Fortunately her 3rd skill has the ability to up the buff chance to the entire party (similar to Ozy). Her offenses are second to her support skills, but still boasts an above average Atk and NP gain which allows her to be used quite efficiently in a standard double Skadi set up for 3 turn farming.

She also appears to have the Saberface trait, so looking like Jeanne/Okita is intentional this time...

Cleared the challenge quest with Mama Raikou, Mash, and Merlin with Support Merlin, Waver, and Arash in the back line. All Servants minus Mama had the Hot Springs CE equipped with 3 of them being max limit broken.

Wasn't that bad of a fight as initially I thought as the damage CEs makes this otherwise overwhelming fight much more bearable. I was doing fine until I got Evil Mama down to her last lifebar where she bullied my Mama (she fucking hits like a truck, even more so when that stupid Blue Oni was spamming that Def down debuff). I had to finish the rest of the fight with the party shown above (I almost decided to start over when Raikou was taken out). Luckily I was able to stall it out with Mash going MvP with her continuous use of her NP which helped me tank one of Evil Mama's NP for minimal damage as I continued to chip away at her health through normal attacks.

Cleared the Banana Challenge. Took 2 tries with the first attempt being with Raikou, Jeanne, and Mash which didn't end too well. Decided on using Cu Alter, Merlin, and Mash with Support Merlin, Waver, and Arash in the back all decked out with MLB Carp CE.

...I just really wanted that ticket for my Summer funds...

Oh hi Kohaku, good to see you again. Hope to see some more updates and news regarding Orie as well.

Orie has a long way to go. While this update for Emi was long overdue, it was a way for me to get familiar with coding again since it has been a long time.

is there anyway you can make an alternate cns for the bars to work in 1280x720 mode? I tried modifying it myself but I cant figure out where the bars go.

I don't know about making a completely separate cns file just to fit a resolution since I find maintaining multiples of the same file when updating quite cumbersome.

However if you want to update the positioning of the bars yourself, then just open the main cns file (Emi_K.cns in this example) and look for states 6003, 6004, and 6010. Look for any explods within those states that have the "gamewidth/gameheight" parameter in their pos and adjust them accordingly.

I'm glad you're still active in this community.

Been meaning to get back into it for a while now. Still have some unfinished business.
