So it’s come to this then…
Because lately roll threads are being made weeks, and even in some rare cases, years in advance, roll threads need to go though here first.
How it’ll work:
(Thanks to @Fall-Moon for helping me by making it clearer )
Once a Banner is announced by FGO NA in either a form of social media, in game announcement or FGO NA stream, you can call dibs on creating the roll thread by writing a comment in this thread in the style of: “I want to make the roll thread for this banner” + @Flower_Hermit in your comment (so I can keep track of your request on the off chance a discussion starts here). First come, first serve.
That said, if it’s announced that the banner hits within the next 5 days, you can call dibs and make the thread. If the scheduled release date for the banner is more than 5 days away, then you can’t call dibs immediately after the announcement. It has to be within 5 days until release. Calls earlier than that will be ignored. The only excdeption being if the banner is announced on the same day it’s released
Assumptions for a release date based on JP schedule are prohibited. The call can only be made after an announcement by FGO NA.
(Banners that come in multiple parts, such as the part 1 and part 2 story and event banners will remain separate threads, and part 2 can only be requested 5 days after part one has hit NA)
After that, you can make the thread 1-2 days before the banner drops, OR Immediately if it is dropped right after it’s announced.
You cannot call dibs more than twice in a row, if that happens, the next person gets it
Current threads will be grandfathered in, so when it’s time to use the threads that were made years in advance, you’ll all say “Oh, so this is why…”
What if someone else makes a thread anyway?
DM Me the thread link, I’ll verify things on my end, and if someone broke the rules, I’ll nuke that thread.
