Greetings all, Toast here.

I am here to propose a change to a long-time favorite acronym of ours here at the FEGBA boards. PEMN, or Personal Experience Means Nothing, is the acronym we currently shout at any who try and bring in personal experience to play. PEMN states that personal experience holds no weight or value at all when discussing the game. However, that is not true. I mean, when we each play FE, we never completely go by PEMN and teirs, do we? What if our Erk is better than our Pent? What if our Kent gets Strength blessed, and Sain screwed? It may be personal experience that someone's Erk or Kent is better than their averagely superior counterpart, however, it also has meaning that they may end up better than their averagely superior counterpart, and that needs to be acknowledged, not completely dismissed.

To try and remedy this, and give Personal Experinece its fair place while still maintaining that it is personal and up to the RNG, I say we retire PEMN and replace it with "Personal Experience Never Is Sustainable". Using this acronym, P E N I S, we can show that Personal Experience has a place, but is not a lasting or strong position, and while it should never be relied upon, it should always be considered in individual play. Because, what is individual play besides Personal Experience?

Thank you for your time and consideration of my proposal.

You should have continued this line of thought. You ended it waaaay too early.

It was a great start, but the finish leaves much to be desired.

It is because of pemn why I chose to use average growth hacks. Fire Emblem has a horrible unreliable growth system, which destroys a lot of potential meta/competitive game.
