The stream didn't really have any real news other than saying that Artoria's name in game will be Altria. How the gently caress do you get Altria out of Arthur?

There's no info on who's localizing this game and the Aniplex USA dubs and translations of the anime in general use Artoria so it's really confusing as to why whatever team they slapped together for this game is doing this. I know Altria is the name they throw on figures sometimes and was on the Japanese Extella website which leads me to think it's a bunch of Japanese dudes who have never looked at how Fate fans in the west have been experiencing the series. Like I would almost understand this if it were just Unlimited Codes and extella, but we have anime that Aniplex put money into themselves to bring to the west, so it doesn't make any sense.



It's said in Artoria's profile that her legend originates from both Arthur and Lucius Artorius Castus who is the actual historical basis for Arthur. Arturia is a proper name, but so is Artoria and incorporates both aspects of her origins well. That being said Altria means literally nothing and does not allude to either part, so it begs the loving question of if anyone on the staff speaks English natively.

On the stream they said it was from Type-Moon themselves so I'm going to go with "Not native English speakers." This happens a lot with Bandai series like Gundam too such as changing Puru's name to Ple for no real reason.

One of us should probably do a write up for new players on the 10 4 star servants that they can get from the tutorial roll.

From my experience only Seigfried and Stheno are straight up trash though.

Thank you for that, although I disagree on Stheno being better than Marie.

Also for those worried that you'll need to reroll until you get a 5 star you don't NEED to. For almost the entire game I got carried by Martha and the free 4 star servants they gave out from events. I started getting 5 star characters pretty late in the game.

The only servants from Apocrypha that aren't in game are Chiron, Achilles, and Semiramis so it will probably be them. Solomon isn't either but I don't see him coming in for the event.

Honestly most are pretty good, Emiya slots well into any team, and Martha is a good support tank who's valuable in endgame for her debuff removal for example.

I got everything in the shop except the 5k CE. If I had bothered sticking with the 5 AP throughout the whole thing, I'm pretty sure I could have gotten the last shop CE too, but without any CE drops to max limit break it, I saw no point in going that far.

Definitely hoping for an Okeanos announcement, because then I can farm Serpent Jewels to get Orion her third ascension. (Also because I seriously just want some more story.)

That's when Drake becomes available too, right? I remember liking her in Extra, so I wouldn't mind rolling for her if she's any good.

Drake is a crazy good crit machine and is just all around great. Honestly almost all of the 5 star riders are amazing.

I wanted to save up my quartz but the lure of Drake was too strong. Used 120 Quartz and the only things i got was Atalante, Imaginary Around and two Victor of the Moons all in the last multi pull. I have too many archers now between Orion, Atalante and Euryale.

Carmilla is also especially good for the same reason Jack is, most Rider servants are female and their Noble Phantasm does a lot more damage to those.

Now I don't remember some parts of Camelot too well, but I think I remember Agravain class changing to Berserker to gain a physical advantage, and he winds up at the end all bloody and beat to poo poo and basically at death's door, so I imagine he got a sneak attack in while Lancelot was busy beating his rear end.

From what I remember he took the drugs that they were giving to the reinforcement knights to buff them like crazy knowing that they would kill him even if he won. He more or less took Lancelot off guard and still ended up mortally wounded when he dragged himself back to the Lion King, Lancelot would have wasted him otherwise.

Didn't Danganronpa V3 suck? I've never played the games myself because they aren't my style, but I heard a bunch of dissatisfaction. Something about how it retconned the previous games in a way reminiscent of Chrono Cross?

V3 is love it or hate it, I personally didn't like it or the twist at all at the end. It did it's job well though as in it made me sick of Danganronpa and not want another game ever. So that's probably what Nasu was talking about.

Her NP still does no damage, the best it can do is remove buffs and lower defense. There are a bunch of other servants who can do what she does much better, she's situational at best.

Lostbelts are a phenomenon unique to what's happening in Cosmos in the Lostbelt, you're thinking of pruned timelines which are related but not identical. Timelines get pruned because they're in too stable a state with no more potential for development (note this says nothing about the survival or destruction of humanity).

Yeah like Musashi's timeline is the one that got pruned for some reason. Lostbelts is a totally different dead end sort of thing.
