And the last srpg ive played was advance wars on gba. Ill be starting fire emblem today and im thinking of going with casual normal. Do you think this is a good idea for someone new to FE and not a lot of srpg experience? I don't want to miss out on the "FE experience" but im the kind of person that will restart if even 1 person dies.

Go ahead with Normal/Casual, try ramping it up to Classic if you go into doing more playthroughs.

I've always found normal to be way too easy...

I'd start with hard/casual for my first runthrough personally...

Well, this is a guy who hasn't play SRPGs since Advance Wars on GBA...

I don't think we want another bad reaction to reinforcements that move on the turn they enter...

If normal is pretty easy, maybe normal/classic would be ok for a beginner?

I would say so. Either Normal/Classic or Hard/Casual for a beginner. Just remember to reset when you lose a character.

The only game that did that was AW2, and that was only in the factory missions. And outside of Factory Blues, getting near the factory was generally a pretty bad idea...

also how is Advance Wars any kind of RPG, there's no leveling up, and the plot's not any more nuanced than the average Sonic game

Normal Classic/Hard Casual would be fine for a first playthrough.
