There’s something surreal when three of the main streamers I watch for FEH content on Saturday, ALL THREE OF THEM, end their stream prematurely for lack of interest in moving forward with the game itself. (Short naming them here) aka couldn’t get any progress done on his schedule and ended up with a lot of bad RNG on AB, so he called it quits early. Capn rage quit on someone who was trying to help him out when he didn’t want it (not the first time it’s happened), and Dire is out altogether after not streaming for almost 3 weeks, and he hasn’t even logged in over a week. He’s on my friend list atm but I’ll likely remove him soon considering he doesn’t even have a useful friend lead up lol.
But it’s all sad overall, tbh saddest about dire since I like his pep talks the most of the three, and he’s actually completely out of the picture now. I do very much understand the existence of certain characters making the entire game experience very frustrating (*cough* FaEdel), but I felt like he gave up too soon considering the monetary investments he had within the game itself. He’s free to do whatever he wants of course, but it’s so mottainai.
The next FEH channel better bring in something REALLY good or I will honestly have concerns for the long term viability of the game for the first time since its rough starting year. It’s been a super good over 5 year long ride, and there are still lots of characters I want in the game… But I want a lot of game left to remain after they finally join too, and for that, the game needs to last for many many more years +____+ and just keep on, really. I still enjoy the game a ton, but I have to brag that I have an easy time shifting priorities like a light switch when it comes to these things. The game is obviously at a low point right now, in which case I just get my usual things done and focus on other aspects of my life (art, other games, love and adulting), just being in the waiting room for when things rev up once again.
If only those streamers could take it more like Cpoke and nims, and not really stress about perfect streaks of this and that, when those things really don’t matter in the long run… personal enjoyment of the game should be taking priority. There’s some argument that having that perfect streak is their form of enjoyment (aka??), which is honestly whatever to me. I don’t plan to hit high tier this round in PoL with the new tier 11– it’ll be easier to get in next round, and I’ll have a much comfier time doing so. Not stressing crazy about it like certain other people.
