I’m in an interesting position because I basically like all the servants and roll for all of them.
In another life where I had an easier time with money throughout my life I probably would have been a whale. Instead I try and practice a lot of self-control with regards to money in general. I’m not the best when it comes to self-control in certain places that don’t involve anything that could have an obvious financial impact, but I’m at least good with money.
Since I roll for everyone I’m usually happy with whoever I get and I don’t really get salty when I don’t. When I do get salty it tends to last for a few minutes until I get back into the game. Usually when I’m getting someone it’s a pretty lucky deal because I never really have much SQ on hand, and whenever I miss someone I can just say “well I didn’t have a lot of SQ to start with anyway”. The only ones that tend to make me salty at all are the ones that I roll for consistently across multiple banners and never get like Jeanne, Okita, Kiara, and Waver. But then the salt stops shortly and I just say “If they don’t want to come, that’s fine, I have plenty of servants already. I won’t put as much into these servants going forward, they’ve had their chance and they’re not interested. I’d rather work with those who are more interested in helping me.” I originally got this idea that servants choose their masters via rolls from a 4chan post which I saw really early on, maybe before I even played the game?
As an ultimate kind of salt-inhibitor, I tend to live with the belief that I will eventually have at least one copy of all servants before the heat death of the universe and I like to let things come in good time. Now whether or not that’s true or they’ll shut down the servers or never give certain servants a banner ever again - I can’t know. But the belief alone brings me extra peace.
As an extra note, I think that if I whaled hard to get someone and struggled I’d probably be more salty with this game.
