    Thank you, oh knowledgeable investors, for being SO CONFIDENT you know where the future of gaming lies that you decide to throw your throbbing, swollen, sacks of money around to make sure things go the way you "know" they should, all while you yourselves being as far removed from gaming as a sense of perspective is from that skipping gramophone in your heads. What would we possibly do without your oh-so-wise opinions? How about we find out.

    No, it just means people are investing more in those companies' stocks. It's no secret that Nintendo's investors want them to move completely over into the mobile market, even going so far as to hope the Switch fails at launch so that Nintendo will "wake up" and develop entirely for mobile platforms. This rise in investments as a reaction to FEH is just a push towards that goal. That's the reason for my aggressive post earlier; investors are trying to tell Nintendo what to do regardless of how the developers or customers feel about it.

    I will be honest and say i don't quite understand the desire for mobile market, as i see it a way to get people to stop spending time in doors with consoles and maybe (More work time or something else) I dunno, I am okay with somethings but i been worried nintendo has been kinda focused on mobile gaming recently since the wii u was released. I still want console quality project games, and is nice to have them to play anywhere, but when they start reducing the well known games to "quick rich water down products" (And i say this without intentionall offense) Is very disengaging. I just hope people can get along with stuff and let people do the stuff they want to, not hope something fails to be standing by saying "I TOLD YOU SO!" and kincking them while they are down. :(

    For the guys who tried it:
    Is it comparable to handheld versions? (doubt it)
    And is it worth playing if you don't put $$$ in it?

    Yes and Yes. It feels like Awakening but designed to be played in short bursts. I also haven't spent ANY money yet and am 100% happy with all my heroes.

    You mean the one we pay almost 40$ per game? No, it doesn't even let you change your unit class.

    And if you don't put money in it then good luck with 1-2 5* character for all your game, and there is an upgrade feature where you need 10,000 token in game and you can get 5 of them when add a friend or 1000 if you top at arena every 4 days (yeah, they sell those token too for "a reasonable price") so yeah, you can still play it without money.

    It's a good game, and it's not broken and half-assed at launch like GO was.

    1. those were explained as being bans for rooted devices, and they were having server issues so they delayed launch in USA, and they fixed all of those before they released in USA
    2. Nope, haven't crashed once and been playing a ton since launch. I would like to see some evidence of this.
    3. Works fine for me
    4. Bad internet? The only time i got a network error was when i turned off both wifi and data while playing.

    Actually if you're picky you need to pray to RNGesus because even $10,000 might not get the exact team you want.
    It's really not too hard to get some good characters, especially if you're fine rerolling. Unlike some gachas it's a pretty fast game to reroll.

    Overall solid game and very F2P friendly so far.

    Aside from shadow ban crashes for root, none of what you're saying actually happened to the masses. I haven't seen a single complaint about most of those issues, and i've played for hours myself without any issues. You either have a rooted phone, a shit phone or garbage internet/data connection.

    yeah, but I did an unroot (because I don't care anymore about rooting) and some people who didn't root get this message too
    it looks like a problem with the server, not me
    even tho when it just came out i could play normaly

    I can play. So I guess it's as much as a subjective success to me as it isn't for you.

    This is exactly why I had Nintendo stock, because I know there are hikes like this where the rate increases drastically over stupid things. But I sold my stock a while back because it was really more of a test to see how it would do over time rather than a profit-gainer, since I barely put anything into it. :P

    It makes me sad that this is where investors feel the future of Nintendo is... This half-done, casual, freemium nonsense. Thankfully Nintendo is continuing to innovate with the Switch, but a company cannot ignore their financial obligations and I would hate to see Nintendo sell-out to cheap wins over something truly new and creative.

    Away from this shithole
    Guys, I decided we should intervene and buy the rights of Fire Emblem from Nintendo. After we make a ton of money, we will buy the rest of the franchises.

    Let's chip in, I put two bucks.

    At this point i believe that the error is because shit-phones. I've seen some non-rooted people getting those error codes, including myself.
