I think I know the exact spoiler you're talking about.

And thank you!  I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out.  I'm catching up to you!  (no I'm not)

I autobattled more than half my lances on the highest difficulty and I reached Rank 25 with some leeway myself (usually all that happens is that I keep the forts I start with). I think them reducing the amount you gain for being on a dominating team is a decent enough change. The difference between owning 1 area and 20+ areas is only 2000 feathers so it's not that big a deal IMO. Plus once they remove the idiotic mechanic where enemies can teleport in and kamikaze all their units in one turn, it'll be pretty easy to take the enemy forts and scoring high shouldn't be too big a problem.

Meanwhile since I stopped pulling I've already saved up 90 orbs that past few days since they've been pretty generous during Golden Week. Getting a second Genealogy banner is a surprise to me, at least having it before any kind of non-seasonal Elibe banner (We got Klein and Dorcas along the way but there still hasn't been a proper FE6 or 7 banner yet). I'm a bit tempted to pull on this new banner but I think I'm going to be saving my orbs from now on to one end- getting lots of Hectors. I still haven't gotten a single Hector and I'm getting into a lot of Arena matchups where I'm really feeling the handicap from playing my shitty DC-less armors. The fact that I put double Rallys on them instead of Swap to up my score makes it even worse. There's a lot of other units I've built that really want DC as well, like Eliwood.

Now I just have to wait for a Hector banner to come along. At worst when CYL comes along they'll probably run a banner with vanilla Hector on it if they follow the same thing they did last year. Or maybe Hector will get DC again-again on his CYL version. Vanilla Hector also comes with Goad Armor though, so he's a nice two-fer if I want him for inheritance purposes.

It's Dragon Quest XI yo! But I already know that it's great because I've been playing the Japanese version. That game is VERY hard up to beat Dragon Quest VIII, but so far it has not disappointed and it could be a contender. I'll judge it once I've finished the game and then I'll rejudge it when it comes out in English, which will likely be the superior version. GOD I hope they orchestrate the soundtrack because keyboards really drag down the experience of Kouichi Sugiyama's classical style.

I'm anticipating it somewhat less now that someone randomly dropped some major plot spoilers on me yesterday.

As in now that you know some plot secrets you're less excited?  Or as in you don't much like what you heard about the story?

Strictly the former. It does a thing that I used to like a lot (emphasis on 'used to'), but it depends on execution more than anything, and I haven't heard the specifics yet.


Also, congrats on your 3k post.

So the final banner of the previous calendar was indeed FE4 Gen 2. Surprisingly they went with Ares and Lene and even more surprising is the apparent absence of Larcei (still too close to Ayra?; or the fact that they didn't want to make the banner too good since Ishtar is on board). This basically leaves Awakening's Gen 2 as the only major series banner left before doubling up (unless the Exalt Chrom + Morgans was our Awakening Gen 2 in which case, the next one will probably be an FE 1 or 6 banner since they haven't gotten any specific banners for them (no, the obviously New Mystery banner doesn't count)). Meanwhile Julius is confirmed to be the next GHeB, so I guess we'll see what kind of bullshit the game will give him to emulate his Loptyr Tome (considering all that it did was give him his massive damage reduction; not that he needed much more since he was close to max stats and had a fucking 30 Mt 1~2 range Res hitting weapon which is enough in the hands of someone so nigh unkillable).

Anyways, I knew I had saved up 120 Orbs for a good reason (even though I still lack a Blue Dancer/Singer).

Also this latest Three Heroes thing was just the excuse I needed to clear that 8th Stratum quest for the GCN Lance (since I already have Gaius, Gunter and Adult Tiki at Level 40, with the latter most one being 5 star). Also, cleared every last Elite GHeB quest but Valter's Fire Emblem one (I'm basically waiting for a week with a Fire Boost active before knocking that one off).

Edit: And speaking of GCNs. Nothing they can do can fix this mode. You straight up are blessed or screwed by the team you're on, full stop. Even a good team can still get outsniped by whales getting to flex their barracks of Infernal munching 5 star +10 meta monsters within the last two minutes of the match. Meanwhile, the Rank 25 thing is also bullshit since it basically requires you to perform at largely Lunatic or above. You cannot make it just on Hard mode wins and even with numerous Lunatic wins, you still need to squeeze every goddamn point you can from every available Lance to make it there. I'd rather have more VGs than this hot garbage.

Sure the map is an annoyance (all Xeno games seem to have that 1-2 things that get on your nerves) but this game has got a nice mix of story, exploration, fun, challenge and a bit of silliness. I'm really enjoying it right now.

This banner's been stupidly generous to me. I spent about 50 orbs gunning for halloween jakob and got 4 grimas instead lol. Now to find a halfway decent build for her even statline.
