There are a lot of Fire Emblem Games that have their pros and cons on what’s so good about this game that made FE fans enjoy the most. Some say that they have good memories about their greatest accomplishments or some that the moments that screwed them over a lot of things like the story or the characters themselves.
That’s when an idea came to me, what are the pros and cons of Thracia 776?
This whole concept of an idea for the FE fans to say about the pros and cons of Thracia 776 based on their perspective and experience with it.
Pro - Thracia 776 has the best mechanics involving the Capture mechanic and using Scrolls to increase the unit’s growth rates to make a bad unit into a good unit despite the based stats or their join time.
Con - Movement Stars are a bad mechanic that can mess up your strategy when the enemy unit gets a second chance to move again, they can kill your unit for round two, and Fog of War is so hard to see the layout of the map to see where we wrap our unit in places that the enemies can ambush you at any time and at any moment.
Is it a good example? I do not know the answer to it.
Anyway, go on ahead to say your experience with Thracia 776 and say your Pros and Cons about Kaga’s Masterpiece.
Pro: No Gods or Dragons to fight, just a ragtag bunch of weirdos saving a country from weird cultists. Love me some casts full of weirdos.
Con: Only maybe half of them get any real development. I know support convos wouldn’t be a thing until the next game, but more developed personalities and more talk convos would have been great to flesh these people out.
I was so afraid of playing Thracia in the past. I literally played up to chapter 3 two times but never played any further until recently, and oh boy I’m loving it!
It has literally a “easy mode” with no tutorials.
Scrolls can make any unit you want to use good if you put the effort.
Fatigue, because it makes you use units you wouldn’t use otherwise.
Staves can double!
Magic prf swords!
Kinda off-topic but Leif is a much better lord than Roy. You can’t change my mind.
Con and mov growth can be really helpful and fun if the RNG is on your side.
Playing it blindly can be a very frustrating experience lol (because things like chapter 4, escape chapters and fatigue can caught you off-guard)
Staves can miss
That’s all I can think of. Still haven’t finished it.
I’d consider that a pro. I’m sure that saying this will draw someone’s ire, but N64/PS1 is the ugliest era of video games (more so PS1). The consoles were capable of 3D graphics, but those 3D graphics were really jagged and weird looking, and the ones that haven’t aged terribly are the handful that were mostly sprite based or it’s a Pokemon Stadium situation where there’s not really any content other than the presentation and it doesn’t need to load any large areas, so some decent models were jammed in the cartridge. And there was a bit of perception at the time that anything not for the Gameboy needed to be in 3D to be taken seriously. I’ll take the SNES sprites over Leif with jagged edges.
I’d agree with you if the N64 wasn’t already on the market and I believe for quite a while at that, Thracia 776 bombed big time because it released on an outdated console, it’s the same situation with Echoes.
just because it wasn’t there until later, doesn’t mean I can’t complain about it, it was possible, it should’ve been an obvious inclusion.
