Does anybody here play FETO (Fire Emblem Tactics Online)?

Found here.

You'll have to make an account, but that takes all of five seconds.

The graphics are outdated, but that's not really the point.

Was hoping I could get some games started with the people here.

I played it when it first came out, and it was really unbalanced. FE gets kind of iffy when you can manipulate your stats to the degree you could back then. Also, getting enough weapons was a pain in the ass. It seemed like they were trying to balance the game though, so I'm interested to know what has become of it.

It's gotten better, however I'm not sure of the status of the person in charge. Tourneys have AWOL for about 3 years. They've made a comeback, and with them, my interest.

Classes are much more balanced. Speed is no longer a broken stat with the de-powering of doubling. To double, you have to equip the pursuit skill, which not only makes you forgo another skill but also depowers each shot to 80% of the final damage. Axe and Darkness users are now a viable option.

WTD stays the same, but the WTA bonus is +X power and 10+X hit, where X is the number of weapon types you have (this includes staves and bows, unfortunately).

Guards and Generals are no longer useless. Their supreme weapon triangle control is now made even better because of the change in the WTA mechanics.

The scales have tipped a bit, though. Monks and swordmasters no longer destroy everything. Darkness users and Axemen are now the best bet because of their power.

Skill is now somewhat of a jack stat, because it only provides 1.5 hit per point instead of 2. This is balanced out by a global increase in weapon hit rates and the fact that people invest less in speed.

Archers are still overpowered because of the lack of weapon triangle control and the ability to have a favorable range that's farther away, giving them an edge in first strikes, which is like 90% of the battle.

Emerald, Fir, what're your account names? Maybe I know one of you.

I have no idea, I only played ~5-10 matches before running out of weapons and getting pissed off. People had maxed Def/Str dragonknights that really ruined my day able to outrange and ohko your mages and better than any physical unit not similarly specced. There were no skills back then, and gold took forever to get.

My name probably included some variant of "Anthrax" though.

The people that made the units you fought probably didn't account for stat caps (or anything else at the time), so they probably had some armor knight or mage armour with like 14 defense at level 1.

Forgot to mention. Hammers are ****ing stupid in FETO. They have 12 mt and the modifier is 2.5. You do the math.

There were only Iron weapons, FE7 classes, and buying new weapons was really difficult so if yours broke it was a bad deal. People who levelled their units that way had a significant advantage under those circumstances, they used fewer uses and killed efficiently, especially since most people had only level 1 units. All these changes sound really interesting, so I'm looking forward to trying this this weekend.

Woah, that sounds like back in April of '08, when the game first came out. I didn't join until about 3 months later, so I don't know about that. There are unbuyable things and it's annoying (you get them from treasure chests instead), but that's just the way it is.

That unbalanced thing?
Nope.
"Nino" got me to try for a bit, so I have an account (Probably named "Airship Canon" or "The Hero of the Dawn" or something like that, but I don't remember) but I don't play.

It's balanced now! >:

Although it could be more balanced.
