They never described Type Mars haven't they? I honestly believe she, much like ORT, got lost and ended up being found by the Huns and her programming went from destroying mankind to destroy civilization and prevent mankind from leaving Earth.

People say bigger is better.

But for the first time in my life, I think I've gone too far.


quote:

Hands:
•210k HP each.

•The hands will now apply an Attack up buff on Ibaraki.


Ibaraki:
•Apply a NP seal debuff (1 turn) at 50% and 20% HP.

•On her NP turn, if hands are alive, they will apply attack up on her.

I wonder how the final day's 3BP will look.

I'm really getting tired of this event. Remember how someone wrote that this game would be unplayable if it had even a semi-functional AI? I'm 90% sure Ibaraki's focusing my support Jeanne Alters. And I still don't have a team that can take on the 3BP quest.

The Crystal Lore's would be nice to stock up on if I can get that high. Welfare Ikuruga would be better.

I'm not even bothering with the 6 million HP, just nah (I have good Servants, just not enough patience and not enough to get an edge for that one).

I prefer Saber Wars because at least the drops were good and it helped that I had a ton of Sabers.

I have both Waver and Jack so I have 2BP down to a science.

1. Team composition: Mashu, Jack, Support, Waver, Hans, Some Other Jackass. Jack and the Support should have the Ushiwakamaru CE, while Waver and Hans have Kintoki.
2. Get the Jeanne Alter or the Scathach on my Support list with really high skill levels.
2a. If they're not there, go do something else and try again.
3. Spend the first battle building up as much NP as possible on the Support. Ideally 50%, but 30% works too.
4. On the first turn, drop Mashu's NP Boost/Invincibility buff on the Support. If you're lucky, the enemies will focus on the Support and build her NP to at least 75%. Then you can skip to the end.
5. On the second turn, have Mashu use her taunt. If you're lucky, you'll have enough for an Arts Chain or something and can skip to the end.
6. On the third turn, use the Stun on Ibaraki. At this point the Support should've hit at least 75% NP.

END: Swap Mashu for Waver and have him drop his buff on the Support. Or if Mashu was dead, have Waver use his buff then swap him out for Hans. Use all the buffs on the Support, then have them lay waste with a NP and a string of crits.

This event is really just "Do you have Waver?".

3BP is more interesting. I can't do it myself, since I don't have the necessary servants leveled, but you can either go for the stall or the kill. The former requires more Cu Chulainn than you can shake a stick at, Mashu, Leonidas, and preferably Medea Lily but possibly Irisviel if you really have to. The latter requires double Waver, a massive beatstick (or Robin and Shuten), Mashu, and I dunno whoever you want.

2 BP is fine though sometimes I lose Okita and it's a really close call; but 3 BP I've tried twice now and failed both times after getting to turn 2 which is why I've been desperately farming for crystals to ascend ProtoCu (Which I did, and he's almost level 70, at which point I'll give 3 BP for stall a third shot after I'm done farming gourds).

Freak Futanari

My 3BP strategy is Orion along with two Tamamos, each with level 10 Fox Wedding. At that point her NP hits for a cool million every time, and she can fire it off like every other turn

Mar 26, 2010


I actually don't mind the event too much. But then again, I can do the kill/stall 3BP fairly reliably (I get her down to about 1mil for the stall if I fail to get the kill). However I'm lucky enough to have a Jealter and Tamamo. The backline is David, Mashu and FSN Cu.

I'm definitely not looking forward to when the hands swap to rider.

So since Tsukihime has been canceled, is Type-Moon going to do anything outside of the Fate universe anymore, or is this basically it at this point?

That thing was announced in 2008, and the latest thing they revealed was character artwork. In that time, how many Fate things have happened, and how many new characters have they created for it?

There is no way Tsukihime is still being made.

Stop being a child because they aren't giving you nonstop details

They are an indie group who still does things on their own schedule. It is the most vanity project that Nasu and Takeuchi could be working on, why would it be cancelled because of that? When have you heard of those two giving up on something? Not to mention none of the extra Fate stuff was even made by them. It was outsourced to other developers with some members of their staff (AKA Nasu and Takeuchi) being in a supportive role when they can afford to be. How much of the Fate stuff do you think is actually made by them? Grand Order's the closest thing to them being entirely in on a Fate thing and Nasu is a head writer. Also Mahotsukai was the last thing they made four years ago which was the most recent VN they made after FSN. There's a lot of poo poo to say against the game being cancelled especially since they barely loving talk about any of their projects while they're in development, because hey Type-Moon is a goofy rear end indie group who doesn't want you know anything about what they're doing until it's about to come out.

Like if it was gonna be cancelled, they'll say it's goddamned cancelled instead of showing new character and background art. Fate's their biggest franchise with all the spinoffs so of course there will be more nonstop details for new upcoming poo poo

I mean we didn't even get this burst of Fate poo poo until Grand Order blew the gently caress up, before this it was just Extra and the occasional anime adaptation and that was only after Kara No Kyokai ended.

This is really the main thing for me. Mahoyo was in active development, if I recall, for like the better part of a decade as their main project, and before its release they barely said a thing about it. They're just that kind of team.

Fate/extra, fate/ccc, supervising fate/zero, supervising ubw movie, supervising fate/ubw, supervising heavenly feel movie x3, mahosutkai, that witch night story, producing fate extralla, scripting for fate extra anime, one year writing plus extra overtime for fate grand order, and whatever i missed.

I'm new to the Fate series. I finished Fate/Zero recently and am about halfway through Fate/Stay Night 2006 (Yeah I know, wrong order. Blame my friend.)

No spoilery details, can someone give me a yes/no answer on whether Saber/Artoria remembers the events from Fate/Zero? It seems like she doesn't.
