All these idiots complaining about not getting free stuff as if they don't understand what type of game this is supposed to be. Hint: They want you to spend money, and giving you free stuff so you won't have to kinda defeats the purpose. You can say "oh but that'll just make people quit!" Ok? F2P quitting doesn't hurt them at all.

You want orbs? Buy them. Seriously wtf I pay all my bills and needs and still have more than enough to casually drop $40 if I really want to roll. What kind of s***ty job do you have?

I'm still getting a steady flow of orbs... I think Nintendo is still being quite generous with orbs.

Have about 150 saved up right now...

Cool your jets man, FTP quitting would hurt them. The more active the community around the game is, the more incentive there is for people who actually spend money to continue spending. Game stagnates and people quit, the incentive is reduced, sometimes even lost.

But yeah, we get plenty of orbs and freebies.

The privilege is strong with this one. Freemium games need f2p players to create a community and make the game exciting. They also market the game as they play it on the bus, train, etc and talk about it on social media and play it in front of their friends. This game is also a marketing tool for future fire emblem games. People who pay for this game are still more valuable, but if it was not f2p, the game would be less fun and stale and there would be less people playing this game.

And the competition would compel paying players to spend more.

Anyways, we technically have the option of getting a free orb daily for beating 20 20+ foes.

Perhaps it's because the current banners don't appeal to me, but I'm sitting on 300 orbs without feeling too devastated about the lack of daily orbs.

Try saving up? If you're sitting on orbs and make the choice not to waste them, it doesn't feel as bad as having no orbs and not even the option to summon in the first place.

Yeah, I've given up hope of getting my Bunnycina. It just wasn't meant to be.

I was saved up about 2 weeks ago. I had a little over 230. Blew 100 on Easter banner and another 80 on Pegasus and only got Spring Chrom for my troubles. It was easy to hoard orbs during the launch window as they were flowing like candy. At this rate it's going to take maybe 3 months to amass 200 again assuming some generous handouts/events.

I had 120 orbs THIS MORNING.

I have 50 now.

I was tempted to draw a Camilla and drew a 5* Beruka and 5* Minerva for my troubles, and then a bunch of trash.

Orb hoards are fleeting. They don't last as long as there are heroes you want.

This is an issue with low focus rates in general and the ever expanding unit pool will only make it worse.
