If you had read the opening posts, you would have understood my intentions better.

You are very lucky, with most titles being localized and released, it's pretty good being a Fire Emblem fan nowadays. You have sites like wikipedia/FEwiki and quality fansites like Serenes Forest and all that where basically anything you wanted to know about FE you could just find out or ask somebody about, somebody like me.


It was one of the things that bothered me more than anything else was when such a delusional person thought their opinion holds more weight because they've been playing the games since the start or finished all the games on the hardest difficulty, so they know more than you or some such nonsense.


If you manage to reach this point, take your time to re-read my entire lesson if necessary. It may take time to fully assimilate these ideas into your head.


Let me start off by saying that I realize your intentions are good, worthy even--I'm not faulting you there.

However, you definitely sabotage your message by describing yourself as a person with a unique perspective and then going out of your way to suggest your opinions should receive careful, even special attention from the community. Could you, perhaps, have the same kind of delusion you are trying to rally the community against?

Furthermore, your post seems to assume two things. 1) The delusional people you describe are anything other than a tiny, if vocal minority of the Fire Emblem community. 2) The other members of the community are not intelligent enough to ignore these trolls and simply enjoy the series on their own.

Both of those assumptions, no matter how well-intentioned your post might be, are pretty insulting.

I was going to let go of this topic, but seeing the state of the first page, I have no choice.

I addressed that in the second post.

When I mentioned the "dark side of the fandom", that included the obsessive fanatics like the current Nono fad.
