It's alright, we feel your pain. Noone wants to admit being gar for Berserker.

Which Arc do you prefer?

Unread postby DarkRedSky » February 22nd, 2008, 5:50 am

Knowing most of you, everyone should have some basic knowledge of the three arcs; Fate, UBW and HF.

I gotta say, I've only played through fate and man was it touching... It's like reading a perfect novel (excluding the grammar and spelling mistakes). I was pretty much absorbed into the story. Great job translating. I can't wait for UBW and HF.

Which do you prefer?

If there were any sequels I'd prefer they were based on Fate. But UBW has considerably more competence on everyone's part, I mean there's no point to having powerful Eirai battle it out unless they scheme and plan to battle properly.

Still, until it actually comes out, we won't know.

Hellz, all must bow before HF Shirou. One can argue his GAR-ness rivals Archer here.

Heeeellllll no,
Archer severed, then attached his own arm onto another person, his past self no less
how much more GAR do you need?

I am saying that one can ARGUE, in certain moments.
I have to say that I am a total sucker for the Nine Lives scene. Take that Sabre, who said a human can't waste a Heroic Spirit! Well, maybe a nerfed one, and also with a haxxored GARm, but still, a kill is a kill.

no one said a human cant kill a servant?..just that a humans power doesnt compare to a servants by a large margin (unless of course, that human has the capacity to be a hero themself...unfortunately in the modern nasuverse, theres pretty much no one who has that capacity :P)

I got that from the scene where Sabre was sword-whipping Shirou and telling him that he can't beat a servant and the purpose of the training is to make him last a bit longer before being plastered on the pavement. The irony eh? Weakling Shirou then dismembered Berzerker at supersonic speed... just love it.
Edit: Didn't he also fried his brain and pinned Sabre to the ground in one of the dead ends?

I prefer HF due to the deep thematic.

But I already said it when other post like this was posted months ago... "I think that this poll only makes sense with all the routes released, not now."

(spoils HF route, just like the quoted post)
Yeah, not to mention nullifying the souped-up Saber's (because Sakura was Saber's master, Dark Saber's stats were off the chars) Excalibur before nailing her to the ground with the Azoth sword. Shit like that is why I still don't understand how Archer got totaled by Berserker in Fate, even if he was weakened by Saber's initial attack. Archer should have been able to trace the exact same attack Shirou used in HF, then shave off the remaining three or so lives with UBW or even just repeated Caladbolgs.

no, I believe the one who said it is puKKa, not you. and I was the creator of that thread ;p

I even asked him if that topic could be unlocked ( and the answer is "yes" ), but seeing this thread has already been created... not much else to say, I guess.

Shiro manages to cut Saber nearly in half with Kansho and Bakuya in one of the ends. But he dies before he can finish her. You can read it here. In the other ends, Shiro helps Rider's Bellerphon win over Excalibur with a four-layer Rho Aias. With both servants temporarily out of commission, he finishes Saber off with Azoth to the heart. :(

Archer didn't use Nine Lives because he didn't know about it. He didn't have access to memories from that timeline and didn't think to try tracing Berserker's own weapon. Multiple Caladbolgs wouldn't have worked because God Hand can adapt to an attack. Also, Black Berserker may not be as powerful as regular Berserker (it's hard to tell). These are the excuses I'm making :p.

My vote for UBW
Gil-sama looks great with that costume :D

I would vote for HF for my second favorite arc HF
Shirou was amazing.

hmm honestly I've only read/played fate and I've refrained from reading spoilers about the other two routes so I don't really know.
