Legendary Lyn is a surprise. I expected Hector or Surtr. Or Lewyn and Grima before considering her.

Ehh, I guess Azura would be the best for me. It'd at least remove the Speed bane on my current one. Myrrh and Duma are good units but I already have ones with great IVs and don't really want another over a better Azura. Lyn is peculiar; I guess Hector SFF'd himself a bunch. Maybe the casual crowd doesn't especially care that that variant of Lyn is probably the weakest.

Some interesting stuff coming out of the inquest going over on the subreddit. When the voting minigame began it would start from one of four fixed points on the map. 20 units appear on the screen from these initial points, and 12 of them finished in the top 30, including oddball picks like OG Robin, Chrom and L!Lyn.

What's worse - people not realising you can vote for rare seasonals and just voting for the base version, or people not realising you can scroll the screen?

I guess ultimately the winners were still 3 legendary heroes and a seasonal, but it doesn't show a large portion of the playerbase in the most flattering light. Much more so than CYL ever did.

I think my favourite part of that is that Christmas RobinM was also on the first screen when you selected Blue. Near the edge of the screen but ultimately only 3 squares away from original RobinM. Voters didn't side with original RobinM because they couldn't find Christmas RobinM or didn't know they could vote for him. Somehow they saw both on screen and decided to go with original RobinM.

I wouldn't use this to speak ill of the fanbase. It's a well-documented issue in polling that if you present some choices immediately, those are more likely to be picked, and it's likely even more extreme here when you have to scroll around on that laggy interface they used for that silly mini-game.

Lyn, Chrom, and Robin are all popular, not too surprising that someone logged in and said "ooh, I like that person!" and tossed them a vote.

Plus people who want Speed Tactic! I'm happy with Lyn winning myself, she's probably the second most desirable unit there for me because I do not particularly value armours nor their SI which are only good for armours. Speed Tactic is even rarer than DC for some reason.

As someone who specifically went in to vote for Myrrh every time, then found she was right there at the forefront, I am happy with this result.

Honestly, I'd be pretty happy for any of these units, though super happy for all but Lyn. I don't have any of the four, and Speed Tactic would be a more-than-decent bonus.

On a sidenote, I think I give up pulling on new banners. I pulled a Karel today on the Radiance banner, which now makes 12 straight off-banner pulls on new-unit banners. I went back and sorted by Rarity and Origin to make sure I wasn't imagining things. Here's the list:

-Karel
-Valentines Titania (TT, doesn't count)
-Tharja (free pull on new power, doesn't count)
-Tibarn (on Radiance banner, counts, but is the one unit here I'm happy with, despite being -Atk)
-Luke
-Rhajat
-NY Gunnthra (from free seasonal pull)
-Loki (Legendary banner)
-Charlotte (free seasonal)
-Legendary Eirika (Legendary banner)
-Ugly Naked Camilla
-Mist
-OG Lyn
-Morgan F
-OG Hinoka

-Naesala (GHB)
-Ares (he's in here somewhere, but I merged him into a promoted 4* +Atk one I had from before because he had +Res)
-Fjorm
-Flora
-Legendary Hector (all three from previous Legendary banner)
-Winter Cecilia (previous TT)
-Grima Robin F (apparently not from Legendary banner because that was before the Elincia freebie below)
-Elincia (free pull)
-Silvia
-Another Morgan F
I still have because I've been too lazy to train up the newer one with better IVs

- Then finally a Halloween Mia. I'm up to 0.02% chances of futility now.

i mean i already have Myrrh and Azura and want nothing to do with Duma, so yeah i wouldn't mind getting her too much. though i think i'd still rather have a merge for Myrrh or Azura, especially Azura since mine's -spd.

Hmm. Maybe Elincia was off-banner then? I initially thought she was, then started cross-referencing these with old banners to make sure I wasn't mistaken on some and found that there actually was an Elincia banner in there.

Awakening Anna is technically first on that list but we don't know how she will be handled. Owain was treated as a different character than Odin. Awakening Anna may or may not count as being different than Heroes Anna.

The whole point of "Anna" is that she's thousands of characters. "Awakening Anna" isn't even one character. It doesn't make sense to fragment her votes at all, and she def deserves the win.

Update blast:

The merge update allowed me to finally have 5*+10's to call my own. So glad I don't have to hunt for the perfect IV's anymore as the banes were holding me back from completing these.

https://imgur.com/a/hZreY6X
https://imgur.com/a/EZZb2R0

While trying to get new Ike, I finally got another Eirika after not getting her for what felt like a year. Three more to go. I caved and bought orbs and got the following:

+Def/-HP Ike
+HP/-Atk Zelgius
+Res/-Spd Sigurd
+Spd/-Def Greil
+Def/-Atk Mist

Overall, the IV's are awful, but I'm now up to +3 Zelgius, which is the most for my non-f2p units. I could also make a +3 Sigurd, but would rather have fodder instead. Although Mist is an inferior Olwen, I'll still use her because I love that art. Gronnblade is the only way for her.

I got Tana from the free banner, and while she was low on my radar, I suppose I can still make use of her.

Lastly, I had just been thinking it's been a while since we've had an Awakening banner and could see more laguz coming and here we are, we are getting just about all of the Fatesawakening ones except for Panne's son, who I can't be bothered to remember the name of

In regards to Heroic Ordeals, I recall the notification mentioning the closer you are to when the unit is released, the more Dragonflowers you can obtain? So does that mean the longer you wait to do the Ordeals, the worse off you are??

My free summon was a Saber (as rare as he is, this is the fourth time he's shown up for me as an off-banner unit) and then next orb Kaden, so that's an above average first session. Both -Atk but Kaden strikes me as more of a supportive unit anyway so it might not be the worst. Not planning on pulling beyond free summon/ticket sessions on this one so I'm ok with this outcome.

I always thought Panne's art in Awakening looked quite dour, so her Heroes art is a marked improvement for me. I get the complaint that it seems to be robbing her of her maturity though. At least it isn't moefication on the level of Lachesis or an Est.

It seems to be just based on when the unit was added to the game. Units added in the first book give 2 flowers, book 2 units give 8, and book 3 units (starting with Eir) give 40. There's no reason to believe these numbers will go down over time. All it means is that there's more incentive to try to get new units as they come out.
