Pretty apt details; I'm in agreement with them, though this is for general use.  Stheno used against a male Rider enemy is godlike, while I wouldn't recommend bringing Tamamo Cat to any boss fight unless they had mobs with them (and even then, expect her to melt if RNG decides to have three to four consecutive attacks done to her).  You'll find with later fights that servants that are terrible in a general sense or in a solid comp are so specialized that they can carry you through a tough fight.  

Medb is a better example of this (although she doesn't come out until the America chapter, so don't worry too much about this until next year): as a five star, her stats are okay, but her skill kit doesn't contribute much unless you're facing male enemies.  But when you do, you'll find she hits them incredibly hard with her NP, her charm skill is successful a lot of the time (with a bonus attack down to add insult to injury), and against a male caster boss, she''s able to one-shot them or take out a large chunk of their HP.  I used her against both the first fight with Solomon and against Goetia, and she held out well while dishing out good damage.  

I think Hans is also available at launch, so he's a good support pick, as is Shakespeare, and Leonidas as a cheap tank.

I'd also throw Ushiwakamaru into your 3 star list, Zero, as her skill set and NP make her both a useful party member who has some sustain, and a strong boss killer against Caster bosses in this early game.  Her stats are solid, too.  She doesn't have nearly the level of sustain as Cu, or the AoE dps potential of Robin, but she's a well-rounded fit in almost every party that can surprise you.  I even recommend rerolling your account if you don't get her or Robin as your first 3 star.

Update to Onigashima rerun event: challenge quest for those who cleared Onigashima last year is up, and the level 90 quests have unlocked.

Aside from that, there's also been an Agartha pre-release stream set for the 28th at 8:30pm JST.  Nico-Nico, as usual.

Reward of 12 quartz for reaching 70,000 retweets.

No Agartha this week, then.  But it's nice (and crazy) that I'll be able to do both EoR chapter 2 and run through the NA release of F/GO at the same time.  Kind of had the feeling that this might happen.

T-minus six days and counting...

More news, this time for the NA version:

50k F/GO Aniplex Live! goal has been reached, and with it comes a bunch of bonuses.

"Beginning of a Journey" CE.
6k FP
10 Gold All Exp
10 3 star attack Fous and 10 2 star hp Fous
Saber Lily
Total of 42 extra quartz

So if you join during the limited time frame during the game's NA release, you're essentially given a free CE, a free 4 star servant (even if she's not that great in-game), the means to boost any servant of your choosing halfway to their stat boost cap for attack and hp, the means to level a single servant beyond level 25 or multiple servants beyond level 10 from the beginning, and enough quartz for a 10 roll and an additional four YOLO quartz rolls (which I'd recommend you just save them towards another ten roll, as you'll be raking in quartz while you run through the early game)

Pretty nice reward. Again, if you're able to and have the time to play, please play. If you can justify purchasing quartz, then feel free to do so. We want Aniplex, DelightWorks, and Sony to know that this game will be profitable for them in North America, not only so that it continues to run here, but to have them potentially expand it to Europe.

T-minus 4 days...

More news for the NA release.

Confirmed: New accounts will be able to pick a single 4 star of their choosing. List as follows:

Emiya
Marie Antoinette
Siegfried
D'eon
Hercules
Stheno
Carmilla
Tamamo Cat
Liz
Martha

Like Zero and I have mentioned, you should pick between Emiya and Herk, though you won't go wrong if you pick Carmilla, Tamamo Cat, or Liz. D'eon is a decent 4 star tank, but his stats are kind of meh.

Also, the specific time for the release is June 25th (this Sunday) at 9pm Pacific Standard Time. Why not 12am on Sunday? Dunno. Adjust the time according to your time zone (10pm MST, 11pm CST, Monday the 26th at 12am on EST).

Finally some Agartha info! A prologue blurb, but it's better than nothing.

"The demon pillars that escaped the ending of the "72 Pillars of the Demon Gods" each found their own questions about life. The beastly remnants that scattered across the world have given birth to sub-species singularities, polluting human history.

A.D. 2000, Central Asia---

Though no obvious war or incidents have been identified in that land, a singularity thought to be related to a demon pillar has emerged underneath. With the vast underground space "Agartha" as the stage, the operation to destroy this new subspecies singularity begins."

We can glean a few things from this that are supported by some recent new storylines. First, that the demon pillars have a vested interest in life and how that relates to humanity, though it's likely their perspective is limited due to their nature and/or the influence that Beasts have on them. That is my supposition on the matter, though, but it's backed up a bit by the fact that the demon pillar Zepar sought out a Kiara from an alternate timeline that resided on the oil platform we saw in flashbacks, and how it linked her to the existence of Kiara from CCC, which I think was considered a parallel timeline to Grand Order? Sort of unclear, and I need to reread the story for the CCC collab. But it's obvious that at least one of the escaped demon pillars works under my supposition.

Secondly, that these singularities are not of the same vein as the singularities the MC and Mashu dealt with in Season 1 of the story. For one, they're clearly defined as "sub-species singularities", which means they're an offshoot or even an after effect of the singularities dealt with in season 1. This is supported by the fact that the Shinjuku singularity took place in 1999, and this one is taking place in 2000. All the other singularities, save for the Fuyuki City prologue singularity (which is an exception to the rule due to it being an alternate outcome of the Fifth Holy Grail War and therefore tangential to Grand Order's timeline) take place prior to the 20th Century. This is because, after a point in the late 19th Century/early 20th Century, science and logic became the power behind magecraft, which meant that miracles and mysteries (which is what the Grail is) no longer found purchase in the new workings of the leylines and access to the Root, save for a few exceptions like the Grail. The only reason why servants like Emiya are possible is because of the counter force, which exists outside of those rules as a safeguard to prevent humanity's destruction (I think I'm right, but I might have misunderstood some details about general Fate lore, so correct me if I'm wrong). So, in connection to the Grails and troubles of these various servants and Solomon's exploitation of them, these singularities all appeared, and all in the past (the closest in time being Londonium, which was placed in the late 19th Century). Solomon's singularity doesn't count in that he created it with raw power as a kind of bubble dimension where he could watch from safety.

Also interesting is that, in the Agartha singularity, there is no clear indication of warfare or incidents associated with a singularity's interference in human history. This doesn't mean that nothing serious is happening: the fact that the prologue states that these singularities are "polluting human history" means that there is an actual threat, likely in regards to the stability of humanity's timeline.

We saw in Shinjuku that the demon pillar Baal had retreated there out of his anger towards humans, and was one of two parties involved in constructing the singularity (we still don't know who the second one was); Shinjuku replicated a state of oppression in modern society, that being the gangs, the high muckity-mucks looking down from their steel towers on the populace, the feeling of both isolation and confinement that the city gave at times. The CCC singularity had Zepar more concerned with figuring out the selfish motivations of humans, in contrast (which was why he was drawn to Kiara, who at her core is purely motivated by her own desires for self-gratification through pleasure or other types of physical and spiritual fulfillment; there's a reason why she's called a 'demon Bodhisattva'), and we saw this with a few NPCs in the CCC collab story.

So clearly, the demon pillars are looking for SOMETHING that humanity has, and is focusing on negative aspects of humanity. The likely explanation is that the pillars are looking for something to exploit so they can get back at Chaldea and the MC, but it's entirely possible that there could be other reasons. Remember, the pillars formed "their own questions about life", as the prologue indicates. So there could be a lot more to this than what first appearances provide.

Anyway, just thought that I'd bring this up and give my thoughts and supposition, as well as some evidence to support it and make them into postulations. Regardless, we'll see what happens when Agartha kicks off, which will likely be as soon as this coming Thursday or a week from today. Of course, it might also get released that following Monday (July 3rtd), so just expect it to drop soon after the NicoNico stream on the 28th JST (which would be around 4:30am PST, since I think the stream starts 8:30pm JST).

And before I forget! T-minus 2 days, 9 hours, and 48 minutes until NA release...

I'm sorry, but I could swear I just heard the words "free" and "Carmilla," and mentioned as though a mutual relationship between those two words was implied. But that can't possibly be the case, right?



May as well call me the Master of Assassin right now.

Hehe~

I'm debating between Carmilla and Hercules, myself. Leaning towards Herc right now, but depending on if the free pick is before or after a certain point in the Fuyuki City prologue, I may go with Carmilla. She's a solid pick against female enemies with her NP, and there's going to be a lot in the beginning (and even some towards the end of Season 1 of the story), so she's a good choice.
