        I mean what's more of a slog, conquering a whole nation in one chapter on one map or spending 8 chapters where each little obstacle is its own map?

          Well the idea of the smaller chapters is that you can put the game down. So by definitely the larger chapter is more of a slog.

            I mean, you can save at the start of every turn, nobody's forcing you to do the entire chapter in one go, or even save-scumming your way to win if you so desire.

            My brother in Christ, save scumming was invented in F4, as the other anon said you can save at every turn, they implemented that cause they knew the fuckhuge maps would take 1 hour minimum. I played 1 map per day, was a fun routine tbh.

      I still don't understand why people wank Conquest so much, for every map that's actually good you have some garbage gimmick fest that's just as bad as your average Revelation map. I really don't care how good baby's first "defend the map for X amount of turns" was for shitters whose first game was Awakening.

              That isn't true just because you say so. It's literal insanity to even believe so considering Conquest is mostly the same stages as the other two routes with at best a few gimmicks thrown into it.

            Awakening, Birthright and Revelations are the only FE games I can't stand. What's the point of strategy RPGs without strategy? I know Japan agrees with me because they've written essays on how fucking terrible the balance is in all those games.

                Extremely good map designs and units, where the team you craft changes the way you beat the maps.

          NTA. Going through all the story maps...
          Chapter 7 is boring, it pretty much a Survive map but all your units bar Effie have tissue paper for bulk.
          Chapter 8 is pretty fun, hectic and uses its mechanics well.
          9 is really weirdly design, it has no flow to its objectives and capturing Haitaka can be a crapshoot with Niles this low-level
          I'm not going to convince anyone 10 is a chapter you kind of have to optimize the fun out of to survive with no casualities.
          11 is wack, no matter what path you take. Either you are dealing with rape ninjas or have to take 3 of your units being at half-health for the rest of the map.
          12 is terrible, the pots are an annoyance no matter what and breakign them all makes the map painfully one-dimensional.
          13 is pretty basic. A decent palette cleanser.
          14 is one of the few maps where the Birthright version is better. Being able to freeze the water to open up the entire map does make it really intense. Having it essentially be all chokepoints is...not.
          15 is really fucking great, not even I can hate it and I'm glad it is in Rev.
          16 is also pretty cool, it is a very unique objective, even if it is filler (Shura is the coolest Corrinsexual).
          17 is the ninja rape cave. Enough said.
          18 is great, but it is the second-to-last good map in the game...
          19 is kitsune. I never thought I could hate kitsunes, but Fates prevails at that...
          20 is Mr. Fuga's Wild Ride. It's a very confusing map that takes multiple tries to even understand the core gimmick, is actually cheesable once you know how it works, another map does its core ideas better, and is a clear difficulty spike regardless of difficulty settings. Fuck this one.
          21 is neat. It's messy because of Stone Mask Faceless and how fliers take the challenge out the map, but I like the ideas to it.
          22 is okay. Not really remarkable in any fashion, just like Sakura.
          23 is hit or miss for me. The linearity kind of kills it, but the raw challenge does make it pretty cool.

            24 is the last great map in the game. It may be pretty fucking empty in both visuals and challenge beyond the gimmick, but it is such a cool gimmick that really makes the Dragon Veins standout.
            25 is YOUR MOTHERFUCKING LIFE ENDS 25 TURNS FROM NOW, and is honestly as bad as Ninja Rape Cave. If it wasn't skippable and honestly optimal to skip it cause the treasures are worthless to you, I would hate it as much as Ninja Rape Cave.
            26 is awful. Too many debuffers, every enemy either is ready to crit you or just smack you dead after your constant debuffs, Iago's staff doesn't run out but the fun certainly does, and is just a big wall placed right in the end.
            27 is fine. The gimmick is kind of forgettable and honestly unhelpful compared to just rushing the core path, but its your last breather before Endgame, so I'll let it slide.
            Endgame is...hit or miss, just like 23. You either have a great time with your fully kitted-out squad versus the toughest challenge in the game, or just get BURIED in reinforcements and BETRAYAL'S wave spam. It really matters if the luck is on your side.

            Stopped reading there
            Silas + Vow of Friendship + Lily's Poise makes Silas a fucking tank, and Arthur's starting 29-FUCKING-HP and Guard Stance with Effie makes him also immune, only affected by Poison Strike (not a problem if you have half a brain to use the full-charge Healing Staff Elise comes with), and Corrin, being Corrin with natural bulk from the Dragonstone, means that she can hold the line just as well as Effie, if not better when you factor in Jakob/Felicia's personal skill as well as Gentilhomme/Demoiselle

              It's still boring, and Arthur is always on a death clock on some runs because his personal skill shits on his Crit Avoid and he starts with 1 Luck. Either he does his job as Effie's stat backpack or he dies.

              Are Kaga's non-FE games worth playing? I liked Thracia and it seems kinda endearing that he's making shitty RPGMaker games these days.

              They are definitely interesting, at least past Tear Ring Saga. They all are pretty fun and have some unique ideas to stand out from FE, beyond the Kaga-isms.
              Hard as nails, though, especially Berwick and Vestaria Saga I. If you are the type that gets easily overwhelmed from multiple objectives screaming for your attention, I would advise caution.

                adding onto this anon, Vestaria Saga's 1 and 2 are very much "If you liked your entries with lower numbers, and relied more on units weapons/personal skills" then I can't recommend it enough, with that said you typically have to do alot of multi tasking per stage and sometimes there's time limits as well, but like, I wouldn't say these are hard games either, just games that will kick your shit in if your careless. This is the kind of difficulty I want in a game, not like SD's hard 5, or Reverse Lunatic, or Maddening, I just find fire emblem alot more fun when I get to play with busted weapons.

            >all your units bar Effie have tissue paper for bulk.
            They don't actually. It's the gimmick of the map itself that destroys bulk forcing you to be aggressive. Even Effie becomes a one hit wonder if she gets Seal Speed by the pair up up north. The key to that map is using Jakob/Felicia as a ranged unit to debuff the enemy defense and killing stuff off with the other people in one hit. Setting up a shop right away eases the map a lot by letting you buy Vulneraries.

            >9 is really weirdly design, it has no flow to its objectives
            Early players are supposed to be baited by the front entrance of the fortress and eating dick to the spearmen+archer formation, leading them to find alternative solution by infiltrating the map down the middle.

            Then they're supposed to play Metal Gear Solid with Azura to lead her to the Dragon Vein point, which she can use to damage the formations in the center. Then you're supposed to be caught by surprise by the reinforcements whicy you can tackle two ways: by using attack stance and clearing mobs one by one with the help of your new dancer or by pairing everyone into Defense Stance and bracing for the next turn.

            You are also given the option to pick apart the formation at the gate which lets new players know that tight formations that seem impossible from one side can pierced eaisly if approached from a blindside.

            >11 is wack, no matter what path you take
            For the ninja side Arthur and/or Beruka paired defensively can take the ninjas despite the debuffs and make it out alive in Hard Mode. Lunatic too provided you deal with the mage.
            The side with Azama you can bait the Hexing Rod and Diviners with Strategist Elise (promote at 10 always) Felicia (if you have her), or Niles, Then kill Azama. Ranged units can afford to take the Hexing rod if it lands anyways and the diviners won't be too threatening.

              >the pots are an annoyance
              literally and unironically you are not supposed to break all the pots. In lunatic even the dragon vein point is a bait and will assuredly kill the person that triggers it. Instead you're supposed to make your way by breaking pots benefitial to you, and carving a path forward.

              >Being able to freeze the water to open up the entire map does make it really intense.
              Didn't you just complain that breaking all the pots makes maps one dimensional? It's not like Conquest isn't all full of defensive units that make good use of chokepoints or anything like that...

              >I never thought I could hate kitsunes
              The fox Den is an excellent chump check. It's a map that's designed around the player making full use of the Attack Stance mechanic. Foxes are low in numbers, are frail and have low HP and attack stance doubles the amount of attackers you have available, the dual attack helps you reach the oneshot range with ease, and attack stance raises accuracy by a lot. Not only that you can also split the last wave that alternates transparency by baiting through the bridge at the top and the main path. It's a map that rewards players who uses their full army and punishes players who pairs everyone up and relies too much on mounted units like Xander.

              >and is a clear difficulty spike regardless of difficulty settings
              You can, turn 1, pair Camilla with Kaze, roid his ass with temporal stat boosters/kitchen/rally strength. dance them up so Kaze is in range of Hayato, shank the motherfucker an his hexing rod turn 1, then use the wind to pull Kaze down into safety while also pushing Xander up so he can solo the right side of the map. Turn one before the enemy can react.
              Is this really a difficulty spike, or just a skill issue?

              >Not really remarkable in any fashion
              advancing two sides as one clears the other path isn't fun to you? But a one-dimesional map like 18 is?

              I also couldn't tell if you were praising or shitting on the ninja map

                there's nothing wrong with this, but it's also what stings because you realize that IS will literally NEVER make another conquest again. They could only afford to do so because birthright (and to an extent revelations) exists for the casuals.

            2 'bad' maps seems pretty good for a fire emblem game. i don't mind ninja cave at all either considering shura rapes the shit out of it but i guess not everyone uses him, and most of the map being the generally same enemy type is pretty gay

              Ninja rape cave is a map where your defensive units really shine, along with supporting units. As always, Camilla is able to handle the ninjas due to WTA, and you have other candidates for going on the offense like Niles or a sniper Mozu, along with any child units you may have gotten. Xander with a defensive pair up and some supporting auras can hold off ninjas since they'll ignore him, and none of the enemies have pass. Benny is another option, along with Effie. Protecting Saizo for the speedwing is rather easy, it just involves trapping him with a dragon vein, though it does put pressure on you to get the treasures that the dragon vein activation will block off prior to doing that. As for the boss, you can reduce the avoid with skills like heartseeker, Benny's personal, or just use archers with high hit rates.

              For Fuga's wild ride, it's a matter of learning how the wind mechanics work. Enemies are split up fairly well so I don't believe there's much of an overlap between magic and physical defenses, allowing you to split your units if you desire. You just need to watch out for the occasional bolt naginata. The biggest problem of this map is getting in to kill Hayato to avoid the hexing rod, as you'll need to either prepare a shield gauge or just have your glass cannons take the hit and be extra careful with them for the rest of the map. This map is best handled with a bunch of fliers, of which you have Camilla, Beruka, Xander through heart seals, Selena through heart seals, Azura's S support through marriage seal, and then any friendship seal candidates or child units. Having only fliers is a bad idea though due to kinshi knights, so you want to have a nice split for the map.

              Last time I used mostly the nobles, elfie and benny. I like to split the army up and go along both the top and bottom of the map. It's less hard and more tedious and map forces you to take you time. I still never got past Fuga's wild ride.

              [...]
              the more i read posts like this the more I realize I'm just far too casual to enjoy conquest by any margin.

              I suck at it, but it's still fun. It took me awhile to even become not terrible at it.

            Ninja rape cave is a map where your defensive units really shine, along with supporting units. As always, Camilla is able to handle the ninjas due to WTA, and you have other candidates for going on the offense like Niles or a sniper Mozu, along with any child units you may have gotten. Xander with a defensive pair up and some supporting auras can hold off ninjas since they'll ignore him, and none of the enemies have pass. Benny is another option, along with Effie.

              What’s your opinion on female avatars?

              • 1 month ago
                Anonymous

                Fine, I'll bite.
                To say I dislike them would be hypocrisy, because I love Corrin very much. But I do not love her for being an avatar. Rather, she resonates with my soul.
                Regardless, I don't think FE does a good job with avatar units. Sure, you can change their name, and maybe how they look, but not how they act. (You), the player, do not have agency over your own vessel. Robin is Robin, not (You). Same goes for Corn, Byleth, and now the Toothpaste bros. It's a very chep, tacked-on bone thrown at self-insert fags.
                Thus, I think FE could do without the avatar concept, just make them as normal protagonist units and leave it at that. And that goes for male avatars too, of course.

                This is the exact reason I don't change their names. Byleth is Byleth, Shez is Shez, Robin is Robin, Corrin is Corrin, etc.

        Because Conquest is the only game in the entire genre that doesn't play itself.

        I just think it's a good showcase of what the series has to offer when you push the system to it's limits. It took what was introduced in Awakening and improved on it, along with doing its own thing.

        Pair up is no longer a no brainer, you have to choose between attack or guard stance and there's enough enemy variety where you can't say that one is strictly better than the other. You can give everyone a stat backpack, but then you may end up being overwhelmed by reinforcements or unable to reach an objective in time because you don't have enough manpower on the following turn.

        Weapons no longer having durability, but drawbacks based on the weapon is a contentious point, but I think the game handles it fairly well. Sometimes you need the brave effect to secure a kill, but you don't want to have it equipped and be within enemy lines because of the defense penalty. Units also don't suffer the stat penalties when using it for a dual strike, so it adds a layer of depth to the system.

        Reclassing is fun. It's a good idea to allow you to build your army how you want, and Fates makes it so everyone has a default reclass option, but if you want more you now have to use limited resources to give them more classes. Now that TH exists, I think that's an example of giving too much freedom to the player, and every unit ends up feeling the exact same because of the strength of Wyvern Lords with your 2-4 mages. In Conquest some units desperately want the reclass, but you have to decide which reclass is more important at the moment. You also can't infinitely grind skills due to reclassing keeping your level the same.

        Furthermore, on the topic of reclassing, giving everyone limited reclass options at first allows you to design the maps around what's available to the player. Early maps have easy solutions while late game maps expect you to be able to utilize the system to find the winning solution.

        I could write more, but to sum it up I think it's a great game.

      Fates (conquest) gameplay is good but I have never enjoyed it.

      Tear Ring Saga is a lot of fun and plays almost exactly like FE. It’s basically a crazier version of Thracia gameplay wise.

      Idk why people are so worried about the Genealogy remake when they stayed super true to Gaiden with its remake. The only issues I can see are gays who’ve never played it ripping on its unique systems and calling them dated or them making it look and run like shit because it’s on switch. So even though I think engage looks like shit knowing this is on the horizon gives me hope.

        It doesn't have a lot. But the steelbook is always cool. And I actually like the idea of the cards since they'll be a good representation of the entire franchise.
        The worth of the artbook kind of depends on what neat extra stuff it has. But I do kind of like the kind of concept art and character model sheets that they're demoing here. So it'll probably be a neat book to have.
        The poster is cool but knowing the size of the box I can't imagine it being very large and it'll likely have hard creases on it from how it'll be folded.

          Genealogy has the "darkest" plot in the main series, and some interesting ideas, but the execution of the storytelling is ridiculously clunky.
          I suspect the remake might fix this somewhat, but introduce its own new fumbles.
          Gameplay-wise, Genealogy is both one of the easiest and least enjoyable games due to the experimental mechanic changes.
          The main reason I want to see a remake is gameplay improvements, because it is honestly the worst of Kaga's games outside the NES.

                Tragic backstories don't make 3H a 'dark' game, especially since they happen before the events of the game; even though it happens off-screen, I'd say the conclusion of Deirdre's story is far darker than anything in 3H since you see what she's like before and she actually dies. Also, the conclusion of Edelgard's backstory (hating the church so much) is so stupid that it really weakens any atmosphere they were going for.
                Killing the students you had no connection isn't really that dark, no more than anything else.

    Will I get raped if I try to ironman this game mostly blind? I played the remake years ago and from what I remember the roster size is kind of small. I managed to get through FE1 so I wanted to give the original Gaiden a shake, so I'm just wondering if there's anything in particular I should be aware of.

      isn't Gaiden one of the shitter ones to Ironman? Most of your Units are regularly deployed.

        Is ironmanning a fucking joke or a real phenomenon in the FE fanbase? Like rouge-likes, fine, ironmanning grand strategy games, OK, but fire emblem? How do you cope with utterly failing 50 hours into a run?

          it's a real thing
          it's unfortunate, but most fire emblem players are extremely autistic and need to ironman or else they'll savescum and ruin the "chance" part of FE. Some playthroughs might end in frustration but it's the lesser of two evils.
          these games are easy and you can win with very high reliability, so you basically only fail an ironman when you do something dumb like forget to give your units weapons in battle preparations.

              some games are better built for ironmanning than others but we are decades past the idea of games being built around just never bothering to reset after critical errors

          Ironmanning in most old FEs where you get a ton of units every level until one or two maps before Endgame is fun as fuck, its only in outliers like Gaiden and Genealogy, then the new games where interesting recruits evaporated as a concept where it falls apart.

          you can lose like 2 units per maps in most older FEs and still make it to Endgame with a full roster, its really not that bad.

          Most of the early games are designed around ironman (well, just not resetting when units die, not wiping your save whenever you gameover), that's why you just get shit tons of units, most of them being random dudes with like 2 lines of backstory.
          Later games aren't really made for it (starting around FE7) due to limited rosters and the emphasis on supports and stuff -- plus SoV and TH adding a rewind feature, indicating you're not really expected to let people die -- but you can still make it work

            How're we feeling about the divine pulses? All this talk about conquest just makes me remember how I'd have to replay a fucking hour because the boss dodged and critted me or some shit. And yet you don't get the same exhiliration as

            Ninja Hell earned its nickname, I'd say, but the dopamine rush you get upon actually clearing it is something else.

              You're not forced to use them so they're okay in my eyes. It's kinda weird since it removes some of the rng fuckery (and allows you to try out stupid shit if you want to), but the stress associated with those 1% crits was kind of fun, in a way, even though the crits actually happening sucks ass. I do wish they would have went with adding save points and more crit mitigation stuff like the crusader scrolls instead of just entirely removing the risk of getting fucked, though.

              No reason not to include them, but I'd prefer if it were a toggle thing and not forced on you when the MC dies.
              90% of the time I used it in SoV and 3H were to rectify misinputs so it's not like its only use is cheating deaths.

              divine pulse or battle saves are perfectly fine but i really wish there some form of incentive to not use them. i think of a lot of modern fire emblem players don't know how to do damage calculations and it works fine as a band-aid for that, since IS doesn't seem to want to shove working with the numbers into your face

              I personally favor Vestaria Saga's "save every 5 turns". You lose some progress with a loss, but not a whole map's worth.
              The Save Points in the DS games were neat too. These are what I prefer.
              Turnwheel is a far better option than Every Turn Battle Save (FE4, Vestaria 2) though. Turnwheel is both less clunky and less powerful - no limit to Battle Save, while turnwheels can be limited to a certain amount of retries.

                In practice it isn't limited at all. It's just like having a savestate before you move any characters.
                I do agree that the Vestaria 2 way of doing battle saves was pretty terrible and did impact my enjoyment of the game

                Turnwheel didn't help me the first time I went through the game. I had perma death on and managed to not lose anyone, or rewind as to not lose anyone, until literally the second to last attack. The big bad dragon 2% crit killed who I picked for my husband, Ferdinand, and I was out of resets. I did not restart.

              Divine Pulse/Turn Wheel is fine, its getting 10/12/13 uses of it per battle like in Echoes and Three Houses that's the problem.

              I like turnwheel because it saves a lot of time if you get scammed by a crit or misinput something. I think the issue is you get like... 15 of them. Making restarts kinda pointless.

              The only thing I dislike about divine pulse/turnwheel is that it feels like just another thing thrown in to adjust difficulty without really interacting with any other game mechanic. Ideally I'd like to see it, casual mode, and the various difficulty settings reworked into a more cohesive solution.

          I have lost like 4 BE Ironman in 3H, 2 of them early (below 10h), 1 mid 15h and the longest one at the 27h.
          Only 1 was a true loss (Dimitri got BONK'D by the DK in Remire) the other ones I ragequitted or clicked Divine Pulse while trying to cope (I lost Annette to a fucking Monster AOE, I thought those one leave you 1HP, retard moment of me, I know)

          Most of the games, at least the earlier ones, supported ironman playthroughs by design. You get way too many units to actually field all of them, and it isn't like they're all joining at level 1. The only game that doesn't really apply to is FE4, and that game gives you a repairable staff that can resurrect dead units. People reset on these games because they're afraid of missing out on content/hate the feeling of losing a unit they've already invested in, not because losing them makes the game much harder.

      You can revive your dead units at certain points in the game, so it´s not that punishing really.

      I won't deny that Awakening was a dumpster fire for armor designs, but I thought that the Fates looks were much better.

          Besides durability all the stuff I mentioned, along with HP values being low, means that the best way to do anything in Conquest is to just send a super-buffed unit in to kill everything. The kitsune map is hard usually but buffing Wyvern Lord Xander with tonics and food lets you win by putting the game on auto battle and not deploying anyone besides him and Corrin.

              HP being low means makes defence means most units get 2-3 shot so cannot be left in enemy range, however if a unit has high defence then he will be able to take loads more hits so it's best to leave that one unit to shoulder most enemy phase combat. There also isn't much reason not to since real time pressure (i.e. not turn limits) only exists in around 3 maps.
              Ch 10 is an exception and is why people seem to like it. Did you really play a map like 13 by tackling the enemy squads all at once and exposing multiple units on enemy phase?

    Nope. I play a lot of Super Robot Wars though. The core gameplay isn't that different and I fucking love mecha. Been playing the fan translation for one of the GBA games since it features a bunch of series I like.

      Thracia is super easy if you know what's coming.
      In chapter 14 you can wall off with unarmed mounted units, or you can kill enemies for easy exp. The enemies will have 1% hit rate on your units if you support them and take advantage of the charisma skill.

      The same way I deal with everything else in Thracia. Stacking support bonuses/tile bonuses/charm/king sword bonus, making good use of wrath units on enemy phase, and abusing the shit out of staves. I went the extra mile on Chapter 14 and used the Thief staff to disarm the boss on the bottom left just to get Dean into that house for his prf lance, while feeding exp to Olwen letting her solo the dark mage reinforcements.

                Roy is higher tier in FE6 than both Eliwood and Lyn are in FE7.
                His accurate earlygame and early mid-game chip damage is valuable, unlike Lynwood.

        Unironically play on the higher difficulty levels and it very much becomes a reflex/crisis management simulator, Hopes in Particular you have to be on your A game for those tight S rank requirements, its very much one of those games where its not so hard to EVENTUALLY clear a stage, but doing so as effectively as possible is another matter, then you have spin offs like Spirit of Sanada which will give you a typical Musou giant stage and then go " Alright now Clear this in like 5 minutes while doing every single objective or you lose" and all of a sudden you can't afford to take your time, all of a sudden, if you aren't curbstomping the entire map you will flat out lose, and thats kinda what high level musou play is, your either dominating the entire map from start to finish or you make one slip up and your dead. these are not hardcore games by any means ofcourse, its very easy to understimate what is required to play these at the highest levels because at the lower levels, its very much just a brainless button smasher, and thats okay.

        like the other anon said it's when you play at high difficulties or the game starts throwing you a bunch of objectives and other stuff to slow you down on a map where being overwhelmed is really easy

        To add, the good ones have a surprising amount of strategy and time management requirements to actually 100% stages, all on top of the surface level fun of cutting down hordes of enemies with huge, flashy attacks. It's entertaining wish-fulfillment with a challenge.

        you're in luck anon, of all musous I've played 3H is easily the best
        It's a genuinely fun game

        That's good to hear. Hopefully they keep making more FE Warriors games like Hopes in the future.

          this, I remember initially liking AoC because the early game is neat but as you progress you notice there's barely any map control and most maps are designed as lines rather than squares, if that makes sense, where you notice that you're intended to go from point a to point b and so on rather than managing the map like an actual battle by swapping between commanders

        Chapters 4-6 are my favorite. You never really get that kind of tense high stakes shit so early in a FE game.

          I think he means that if you don't invest in recruiting a student you'll lose the ability to do so and have to kill them later. Which yeah, like you said it's basically free. And you can only deploy a small amount of units at a time so you don't even want to recruit everyone since you'll never use them..

          This is why I can't wait for FE4 remake, deploying the entire army at once should just be standard, let me make battle lines to hold against the 30 enemies god damn it, instead of having every fight be the same 10 allies vs. 8 enemies and I wipe them before they get a turn.
