iirc the theme song is a kind of play on or reference to a commercial for the very first game, which is neat!
but also i find the lyrics themselves still kind of grating to me ^^;;
i’ve been playing it a ton, and i have mixed feelings about it!!! it’s very much a game you shouldn’t super dedicate yourself to, it’s obv shallow in many respects to the main games. but, i find i really enjoy it because it’s not as deep??? it’s very accessible, and easier for me to keep track of everything that’s happening during every battle then any of the other games. but, the f2p and gatcha stuff can still get in the way of my enjoyment (esp since higher level fights can take up enough stamina that i can play only 2-3 battles sometimes before i have to wait for it to recharge), but nintendo seems pretty generous when it comes to giving out orbs and crystals and stuff for me to collect, so i have a fairly good size and decent roster. overall i’m pretty into it!
so far accepting and sending friend requests don’t do much of anything. you get more feathers the more friends you have, up to, like, 15 feathers a day, which is not much. i think they mentioned something about implementing more stuff to do with friends next month, which is what the ??? on the battle map is for.
fire emblem ramped up it’s sauciness after awakening, iirc, but it’s always been pretty anime! tbh i’m into it. i really like how each character has a different artist as well! some characters i don’t know but use anyways because of their art, haha.
my main team consists of lucina, effie, camilla, and olivia atm. i have a few 5 star red swords and lucina is my favorite out of all of them. her sword is strong against any dragons, even blue ones! so anytime i see one in battle it pretty much guarantees a free kill for her. >:)
my camilla is also 5 stars (and the only 5 star i have that isn’t red unfortunately), and she’s really good!!! she’s like a glass cannon, her brave axe+ gives her minus speed but gives her two attacks every time she initiates a fight, which means she’s always going to do alot of damage if she attacks first but her opponent have a huge chance to do the same if they attack first instead.
i like effie because she’s my best blue spear but also i like her character in general even though i’ve still never played fates. her artwork is super pretty but all of her lines are about working out or sayings like “ALWAYS TRAINING, ALWAYS KILLING”. she’s great. and olivia is a dancer like azura! and the only other one with that ability as well iirc. like her since i use her to give someone else a turn she’s way lower level then anyone else. but that’s actually fine, i just either make sure she doesn’t get killed too early or use her as bait at certain moments since i never have to worry about losing experience points with her.
as far as other characters go i really like felicia in general. she’s me imo!!! her voice actress is great. i’m bad at using ninjas but i plan to fully level her up anyways. clarine looks straight outta love live and is my main healer (for when i need a healer, anyways). i’ve been leveling up nino as a substitute for camilla because she’s cute and she has a skill where she drags an teammate a space towards her, which means i can use her to attack, use olivia to give her another turn, and then move her out of range of her opponent and drag olivia out of range as well! there are a few others i have that i like (like odin! and laslow!) but just don’t feel like leveling atm.
anyways yeah! btw there are quite a few characters that are, like, on rotation to appear once a day. those are the ones that you can get one star and two star variations of! so if you miss donnel or olivia or wrys or such, they’ll pop back up eventually, i think. the very special ones like narcian beforehand and female robin right now though are only up for a few days before they’re gone. they’re tough, but worth grabbing imo.
