Fate Requiem: Board Games of the Apocalypse discussion thread

Welcome to the Fate Requiem Collab discussion thread :catballoon: Here, you can talk the current event, Fate Requiem: Board Games of the Apocalypse, whether it’s about its story, gameplay, and anything else related.


Event Overview:
This event is a little unique compared to others, where they’ve introduced a board game with a layout similar to Monopoly. And just like Monopoly, you can move forward on the board by rolling dice that you’ve farmed from free quests. Each spot on the board will trigger a certain quest specific to that spot, and completing that quest will reward you with tokens.

Just like each spot will trigger a specific quest, the reward received from that quest will give you a specific token. There’s no limit to how many times you can go around the board, but there is a limit to the tokens you’ll receive each time you land on a certain spot. You also need to collect a certain set of tokens to unlock the main story quests and bonus quests, which the latter must be completed to get the welfare copies, command codes, and other rewards.

So… yeah. You can see how real ugly this can get if RNG refuses to let you land on a certain spot that’s needed to unlock the main quest/bonus quest. Fortunately for our sanity, there are rigged dice that you can obtain from the event shop and the free quests to a certain extent that’ll roll only a couple or one number. My advice would be to save those rigged dice until it’s looking like you’re about to go in circles trying to chase a spot. But at the same time, don’t hoard them like a dragon; they’re there to give you an enjoyable board game experience. This event is also looking to be more time-consuming compared to the usual events, with the amount of quests you have to do (free quests, main quests, bonus quests, board game quests, just end me already :catflush:), so be sure to not procrastinate much with this one.

I was wondering what was up with the boardgame title, thanks for the explanation! :fgo_bbsmile:

I played this event on JP and never completed it because of annoying mechanics

My understanding also is that this event is pretty horribly designed that some jp players dub it the worst collab, and now I can see why. Farm drops for the privilege of RNG potentially letting you do a quest, I am getting Sanzang going to west flashback :fgo_sanzangpoint:

I’m going to be entirely honest with you: I completely suppressed the memories of going West. That shit was not cool. I hope this is at least a little bit more fun than that.

I played this event with a new account during its JP run, I remember it not being that bad. The event was pretty generous with the rigged dice so it was easy to just roll normal dice at the start of the event (when you could land anywhere to unlock something) and start dipping into rigged dice towards the end of the event when you needed to get into a certain space.

I didn’t farm / read the story back then though, so dunno how it will feel to play on NA with an established account. :thinking: Still, I have good memories of this and am looking forward to it.

What time does this event start? Is it Friday evening (Saturday morning my local time)?

Farming this event wasn’t too bad iirc. At least I finished it unlike Going West. You’re bound to land on most spaces during the first few runs around the board so only those last couple spots might end up being tedious. At that point I remember buying the 1/2/3 dice from the shop to get it over with.

Thinking about it, that would make sense. Most events start 9am local time, which would be midnight (I think?) PDT. I think I was getting mixed up because events don’t usually start on a Friday.

But that would be very nice though, seeing as I’m ‘working from home’ tomorrow :fgo_bbgrin:

meanwhile us in the americas always had to stay up or wake up early to clear some AP :fgo_deadinside:

Edit: a look at the guide and the first step is 0AP ~30min read. Why you got to be like that game :fgo_gudako:

Could Alter please give it a rest? Being that edgy all the time must be exhausting :tired_face:

Also, Da Vinci Rider in Chaldea? Or are we calling the Wandering Sea Chaldea now? I know we’ve had to suspend our disbelief for some cameos in some events but this one seems fairly egregious.

This among us section is really giving off those Orleans wyvern vibes. I thought we learned that lesson 3 years ago. I suppose the handful of bronze drops is nice

Edit: maybe it is the lack of sleep but the MC so far infuriates me more than before. We know Mozart is lying, why are we getting drag around by him :fgo_gudakogun:

I think they called Wandering Sea a “New Chaldea” recently so it’s not bothering me really.
Although even the preview posted on twitter has an adult Da Vinci so it’s kinda weird.

I believe that depends on your main story progression, you only have Rider Da Vinci if you’ve cleared any lostbelt.

That way they can basically make it so the event takes place in both the old chaldea and the wandering sea i guess, doesn’t explain why the hell they would let so many servants running around while using precious resources only for playing tabletop games but this is how events are.

What’s up with the new art?

Summary


I understand it might or might not :wink: be story relevant, but I don’t recall new art that often without a new costume dress.

Marie is looking gorgeous though, but wasn’t that costume an FGOAC exclusive? Are they literally taunting us in-game now? :fu:

Probably just recycled them from the heroic portraits no? looks kinda familiar

Aha, so it is.
