Da ****? Dis game don't scale with your levels?!?!

#1HappyUnicorn101Posted 7/28/2013 8:49:55 PM
Then isn't wouldn't dis game be fairly hard without grinding? I'm up in chapter 25 and all my units are almost lvl 20 after their first evolution. (Lvl 20 starting class --> Lvl~18 Upgraded class) and some of these units are hitting me hard.

If I didn't grind, I imagine this would be very difficult because I read this game DOES NOT SCALE to your level.

...What?

You're saying you have'nt been second sealing? In that case of course things will be harder for you as you'll lack stats and skills for your characters.

I am doing it now and I have a few characters already going through an alternate evolution.

But damn, this game seems like it would completely beat down a Fire Emblem new comer.

I'm sorry to say this is probably the most friendly newcomer FE game there is pal. Lower the difficulty or tough it out until you get the gist of the series.

Yeah, if you aren't grinding and don't give a unit excessive favoritism it's pretty easy to lose a unit.

This is especially once enemies have forged weapons everywhere.

Addendum: Level scaling by itself doesn't imply anything about difficulty.

Romancing Saga for example has level scaling and it's not an easy game for newcomers. Level scaling in Romancing Saga actively punishes grinding, to the point that the game can become unbeatable. You only get loot and money from quests, grind and you will have crap equipment and no quest rewards.

Tactics Ogre (SNES) is another example in that enemies were always of equal level to your highest leveled unit. Therefore it was designed to punish unit favoritism, not make the game easy.

Calm down cool guy. Read my post instead of jumping the gun on trying to call out newcomers.

I'm not trying to beat you down. If your having difficult with the easiest FE game ever, you should lower the difficult or change your tactics. All I was saying.

It doesn't scale with the difficulty.
Hard/classic is actually quite easy even if you don't grind (using a full team)
Lunatic/classic is a joke if you only use few units.
Lunatic+ doesn't count because it's unreliable.
