Dragalia Lost

Got back into Dragalia Lost last month when they dropped that surprise announcement about a crossover with Fire Emblem Heroes, and I'm loving it! It's especially great that there are a bunch of cool female and male adventurers who are equally strong and not lopsided in favor of the girls like in FEH. So far, much hype with all the quality updates, though I'll have to see if I can balance playing two phone games at once. XD; At least FEH isn't taking up as much time anymore now that I've gotten to Tier 21 in Aether Raids. Maintaining the tier is pretty chill.

I couldn't quite get into DL when it first released around 6 months ago (the maps felt tedious and I was lost and without any good units), but last month introduced auto and 2x speed for much easier grinding, and I also rolled some cool adventurers. Though I didn't get the free 5* as a new player, since I continued with my old account that had nothing in it.. By the time I learned that I'd get a free 5* as a new player, I'd already rolled and got Curran and some 5* dragons I wanted to keep. So yeah, dragons. *___*

Went with Rykatu as my nickname in this, since we're actually naming Prince Eugene, who can make pacts with dragons. Rykatu fits better. XD;

Anyway, the FEH crossover event is so good. I'm excited for future crossovers now. The story events so far have reminded me why I love crossovers in fiction, and now to see it in a game, with the characters in all new situations? Really cool feeling. (I also found out that Granblue Fantasy, also by Cygames, had a crossover with Detective Conan?? I would've gotten into GBF for that haha!)

Some stuff I'm enjoying a ton about this FEH crossover:
*the crossover music (A Fire Emblem rap on the main menu, omg), title screen has the same music as FEH's title screen, there's a different soundtrack when we turn into dragons, amazing music in the story scenes, etc etc.
*In the boss trial, Alfonse uses moves like Growing Light and Rising Light, just like the 5 turn AOE specials in FEH, and they show up like patterned boxes to imitate the grids in FEH. Love this touch!
*The difficulties are named after FEH difficulties too, like lunatic and infernal.
*Story event gives Alfonse, Fjorm, Marth, Veronica, and Loki all great characterization.

The Alfonse boss fight was insane. One hit by him, and everyone's dead. I joined a co-op room for this battle using Heinwald. Host was a Curran player. We kept at it failure after failure until we finally triumphed. \o\ Was a great feeling to join a room that didn't give up after the failures. Loved working together to learn the battle.
