In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

How long until IDW puts out an Optimus Pride Month comic?

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

Aside from doing all the free quests, see if there are any interludes for the lower star characters (may have to level them up and get some bond points, I think, though).  Also, when there is maintenance, hope they have to delay it, as they tend to give "apologems" quite regularly.  Only a limited supply of them right now, so hard to say aside from plugging away at those and keeping the daily login streak going.

 

Or spend $$, but from my experience (starting from January '16), they tend to give good amounts of free ones overall.

Quartz isn't really farmable since anything that gives it doesn't do so repeatedly besides login bonuses and maybe some event rewards.
 

Stheno is okay, but only real great use is during Camelot.


Are you sure you're not thinking of Euryale? Stheno is the Assassin, and I thought Camelot is heavier with male Sabers than male Riders. And well, Stheno's NP doesn't really do damage and the debuff is pretty lacking compared to Zhuge Liang or Asterios so I'm not sure about her being okay even in normal conditions.

Yep, it was Euryale for Camelot (they look so similar), Stheno works in very specific combinations with Divine servants, so, yeah, not hugely great later.  Prolly decent for a while on the early Singularities, though.

I'd recommend waiting for the Bride version with a more interesting skillset, but maybe I'm still annoyed at getting the normal Nero instead on the JP version.

I had to give up on Saber Alter after getting NP2 Waver and NP2 Altera...  Was waiting on the story for a long time, so finally doing that, as well as finally getting my Hun-ny to 70. 

 

I have a diverse team, but not many past the first ascension, so not sure how I will fare on Nero Fest.

 

Saber Bride is much better than 4 star Nero (though I still cant stand their voices).  Was my second 5 star character.  And only NP2 5 Star on my Japanese account.  But still wont be for a while (was added during the first Valentine's event).

 

Friend code is: 089 222 366

I'm a little behind on leveling my team. I've been focusing on getting my three Servants maxed out with status up cards before they hit any level caps I can't get them past. Also, farming for ascension materials, which has been going rather poorly.

Got Nero on my first 10-roll of the event. :) I still have another 30 free quartz, so I think I'll try again tomorrow; maybe my luck will hold and I'll nab Altera too. :D

 

Also, thank you again, Homeless, and your absurdly-strong Gilgamesh, for letting me tear through Jeanne and Gilles without having to get hammered by their NPs. :p If I can get that special Craft Essence from this event this way, I'll be happy.

Also, if I'm reading this right, the most you can get of the event CE is 3. So... we can't actually max it out?
