I tried to like it, and I really wanted to, but the game just isn't what it used to be like. Now it's all grindy and about "what's the best build for these characters?" Before, you could win with some good strategy, now enemies are just OP as hell, spawn in the most ridiculous places, and then proceed to roflstomp you. 3 promoted units on ONE turn with over 50 HP a piece AND they move same turn? Not to mention I'm only on Hard? I tried 5 or 6 times to strategize to best them, and I either had to A.) stand on the spawn point (gee, that's full of strategy and wits) or B.) grind, like I'm playing some jank-ass generic JRPG.

Not only that, but the game was actually even dumbed down with the exclusion of the magic circle, which again, promotes more emphasis on leveling rather than strategizing and nerfs any non-dark magic user. The entire class system feels like ass too. Rather than having to rotate out my party and carefully plan what units will benefit me most, any unit can be used in this game, really. The only exception being if I see a lot of archers, I swap fliers out for more horse mounted classes.

I feel like it's just not the same anymore, which makes me kinda sad actually. I played so much of 7 when it came out and played 9 extensively as well, but this just pales in comparison. Well, not even pales, it's really like comparing apples to oranges, but it still bums me out.

Sure, if you enjoying mundane tasks like min-maxing and grinding to level 50 for one specific skill.

i finished hard/classic 1st playthrough w/o grinding, so i am not sure why you think you need to grind.

though i do agree it takes less strategy w/ all the open field map.
I need a sharp instrument... or blunt, blunt is good, too.

Hey, I'm not discounting that, but I mean, I've completed stuff like Hector Hard Mode, which was pretty tough, but then they just change up the whole system in this game. It's a good game, but not a good FE game, IMO.

That's what you get for playing a severely overrated board game. All you're missing are a pair of dice or something. The berserk fan boys are more amusing than the game itself.
