2022.01.27 22:53 UAEmberCelica [Mobile Games] The Ballad of Fallen Edelgard, or how a developer created a unit so broken that she’s still hated to this day.
Hello HobbyDrama, and welcome to the story of how the developers of the mobile game Fire Emblem Heroes created and then released a unit whose very existence is controversial. A unit so ridiculously broken that they’ve released a total of at least seven entirely different units designed to counter her. I’m talking about Edelgard: Hegemon Husk, or as she’s more commonly known as, Fallen Edelgard. Unfortunately, I cannot talk about this unit without giving spoilers for at least the Blue Lions and Black Eagles route of Fire Emblem Three Houses, so be warned.
But first, what is Fire Emblem Heroes? Fire Emblem Heroes is a mobile gacha game based off of the long-running Fire Emblem series of strategy games developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo. In the Fire Emblem series, you command units of an army to fight enemies. These games are dense with stories and characters, so dense in fact that Brian David Gilbert made an entire video trying to sort these characters out. Like Pokémon, every character is probably someone’s favorite. To capitalize on that fact, Intelligent Systems made a mobile game where you collect your favorite characters through random luck and go through a story that can best be described as made using the leftover budget they have between mainline games and the scrapped plot ideas they threw out for being too bland. I’m not here to talk about the story of the game however, because that isn’t really a “HobbyDrama” so much as a “HobbyDisappointment”. Fire Emblem Heroes has a semi-consistent theme to how it works. Every month, you get a “banner” of new characters from a specific game you can attempt to get, as well as a seasonal banner of characters not limited to a single game dressed up in new hats. A specific banner they like doing is the Fallen theme, where they take characters who turn evil and then release them in their evil, or Fallen, form. Generally, these are characters who have been possessed by an evil dragon or corrupted by an evil dragon because most of the villains in Fire Emblem are evil dragons. These banners are usually released in May or June, and fans are usually excited for them as they are one of the few banners you can safely guess who will be on.
But wait, who is Edelgard? To those of you familiar with some of the Fire Emblem drama that have been posted here in the past, you probably remember this post by the really talented u/IHad360K_KarmaDammit, who inspired me to make this post so huge props to them, talking about how Edelgard innately causes drama from the fanbase. To those of you who haven’t read it, I highly encourage you to do so, but here’s the bare essentials you need to know. Edelgard is one of the four to five main characters in the newest game at the time of writing, Fire Emblem Three Houses. In Three Houses, you are tasked to instruct one of the, well, three houses in Garreg Mach Monastery. Each house is led by a different soon-to-be ruler, and Edelgard is the leader of the Black Eagles house and soon-to-be Emperor of the Adrestian Empire. She is also, as is revealed mid-way through the game, the Flame Emperor, a nebulous figure who seeks to destroy the church. Depending on if you picked the Black Eagles house, and if you went with her on a hard to miss mission, you can join her and see her perspective, learning more about her and why she is doing this. Otherwise, she becomes one of the major antagonists of the entire game. If you joined with the Blue Lions house specifically, she becomes the final boss of the game, turning herself into a horrible monster known as the Hegemon Husk. In this same route, as well as the Golden Deer and Church routes, Dimitri, the leader of the Blue Lions house, goes crazy and is generally not in his right mind being haunted by the memories of those he loved who died. Whether or not the game handled his mental health in a sensitive manner could be its own post, but these are just the bare essentials. Edelgard is a controversial character by virtue of either being seen as a just liberator trying to take down the church or a petty villain trying to conquer the continent for her own gain. This also largely depends on which route you started changing your opinion of her dramatically, with people who allied with her from the start loving her generally and people who didn’t hating her. Personally, I started with the Golden Deer route, the one route that has very little impact in these debates, so I’m fairly neutral.
But hang on, how does this all tie together? Well, I’m glad you didn’t really ask since this is all a framing device. On May 5th 2021, two days before the banner was set to go live, the trailer for the Forces of Will banner was released. This came after fans had started to complain about Three Houses bias, after all, the game had only been out for less than two years at that point and this was the 16th (by my count) banner that there had been a new Three Houses unit in, and this Fallen banner was split between two games. There was a small outcry that Dimitri got a Fallen alt, since he wasn’t possessed or corrupted, but rather dealing with a mental health issue, as well as Dimitri having the same movement and weapon type as two of his other versions. However, that was quickly overshadowed by Edelgard’s Fallen alt. This was Edelgard’s third armored alt, this time based off of the Hegemon Husk, and she had a lot of the same effects as the others. She could act a second time if she attacked, something incredibly strong in a game where giving another action to a unit usually required a special unit type to give up their action. She had automatic healing, as well as damage reduction at a time where both of those abilities were fairly new and never bundled with another. Overall, she just had a lot of different effects that snowballed together into a strong unit.
But how did the fans react? To no one’s surprise, fans were not especially happy with Edelgard getting a Fallen unit, especially one this strong. She had no real counters at the time of release, and was a better version of multiple units in the current meta. The official FireEmblemHeroes salt thread for this banner had more than three times the amount of comments as the hype thread, and in the main thread people were already calling Fallen Edelgard the best unit in the game. The community was annoyed, and this was before the banner had even officially released. When the banner released, people flocked to get the new Edelgard. During the first few weeks, a lot of people complained about facing Fallen Edelgard, just because there was no true counter to her. The community started to get angry at Intelligent Systems for releasing such a broken unit, with no real counterplay to her. I myself managed to get a copy of Fallen Edelgard, and can personally attest to how much she breaks the story content. You can throw her into a group of enemies, look away from the screen for a few minutes, and then there are no enemies left. I cannot overstate how much the community hated Fallen Edelgard. In any of the Player vs. Player content in the game, it was not uncommon to see teams of Fallen Edelgard. The community always complained about power-creep, since units had been getting progressively stronger, but this was an absurd jump in power. To top it off, they made one of the most powerful units in the game one of the most hated characters in the series. To say Intelligent Systems was disliked for this was an understatement, with it being one of the best selling banners and also one of the most criticized banners of 2021.
But when did it all end? Eventually, like all characters in the game, Fallen Edelgard was eventually usurped from her throne. Other units came out, the meta shifted, Intelligent Systems sold you the solution to Fallen Edelgard nearly every other month. In Player vs. Player content, Edelgard simply isn’t that strong anymore. With the rise of Yuri and Legendary Sigurd, both of whom could be a whole other post, the Emperor of the Adrestian Empire fell from the highest echelons into a “measly” Tier 1 on Gamepress’ tier list. Although, with the advent of A Hero Rises 2022 where you pick a unit to try and nominate them so that everyone gets them, Fallen Edelgard’s story may not yet be over. After all, there’s always been an Edelgard in A Hero Rises, so she might be able to win this year.

2022.01.27 22:53 tom8823 [MM] first time playing. Should I use gossip stones?
Hi guys. It's my first time ever playing Majoras Mask on 3ds. (No spoilers please!)
I've never owned N64 and I know that OOT 3D added sheikas stones to make game easier. They were not present on N64.
Now my question is were gossip stones present on N64 in MM? I try to avoid any help that was added by 3ds version if there is any so kinda like playing on original.
And let's say they were present. Should I use them or I should avoid any clues from them? Not gonna lie, game is much harder than OOT and most of the time I'm lost and running in circles but I try to avoid any help from the internet.
Did you guys use them during your first play? Please add your opinion.

2022.01.27 22:53 Pickles1234567890 Migrate to a non KVK focused kingdom
We have a very small group of 3-4 average power governors looking to migrate to kingdom where it is not KVK focused. Our accounts are very old and have accumulated quite a number of troops but we do not fight much we simply play this game like FarmVille.
We have no intention of winning MGE or Zenith events. We just wanna farm and make troops.
Since the current kingdom we are in intends to be heavily kvk focused we have to leave the kingdom or risk being attacked.
If anyone is able to accept us farmers please Pm me.
Our power range from 80m to 52m.

My rent was due on the 20th, and I'm 90% sure I remember paying it. I remember having to move money between accounts so I definitely at least got ready to pay it. I have the confirmation email from the university, but it's been a week now and the money is still in my account. I could've sworn it went out, but the other day I checked and it's back. That or it never left.
What should I do in this situation? Email them and ask what's happened? Or just leave it?

2022.01.27 22:53 AdCommon9428 My gf leaves when we have to have important conversations
I love my(F) gf, she makes me very happy and I’m so grateful to have her but something about the way she deals with emotions is completely opposite to my way of dealing with emotions and it drives me crazy. Whenever I try to bring up something that bothers me about both of us or a negative experience (in regards to our relationship) she hears me out and then she just shuts down. She says she is busy, or has to sleep as soon as the topic gets like emotionally intense or deep or whatever. She is more of the avoidant type, like she tries to put it on hold, while I really need to discuss a problem as soon it happens or it drives me crazy. Also there are a lot of things that have happened which she sweeps over the rug. I’m not really holding a grudge or anything but more of like, I want to be able to talk about what happened, discuss who did what wrong, what right without having her brush me off whenever I mention something we don’t agree on. Idk why I wrote this really, are there any other people that feel like that or something similar?

Do you think if Chris knew his teeth were an issue that he’d have them fixed? He’s in real estate, so he knows image is important. I know that’s really superficial and he seems like a decent person with a good personality thus far but maybe getting some dental work and whitening would enhance his business and love life.

2022.01.27 22:53 Severe_Composer_9494 You cannot be pro-Dravidian and prefer a fair-skinned partner. Change my mind.
You be pro-Dravidian or prefer a fair-skinned partner instead of dark-skinned, but you can't be both at the same time because its inconsistent.
Why prefer 'Aryan' features for your partner when everything else, you want it to be Dravidian-centric? Are you doing this just because its convenient for you as a South Indian man? Do you realize how much discrimination and suffering it causes to the (really) dark-skinned women around you, to feel undesirable and unwanted in society, despite living in a region/state that boasts about pro-Dravidianism?
