I thought this would be a cool topic to discuss. These are my picks for favourite, least favourite, and most disappointing event.
Favourite - Nerofest: Not heavy on story but lottos are my favourite events in the game as every time I run a node I feel like I’m making tangible progress on one of my favourite servants and the extra rewards like Mana Prisms & QP are fantastic as well. The CQ’s aren’t perfect with King Hassan for example being laughable for such a asinine reward (5 gallstones & a ST, what a joke) but the best ones are highly enjoyable and give a opportunity to benchmark my overall progress which is pretty gratifying (personal highlight: Siegfried gets taught elementary and is promptly destroyed by Chloe). Considering how many level ups and skill maxing this event allowed me to do this year this one is easily my favourite. Honourable mentions: Summer 1 Part 1 (best dialogue in the game, well picked cast), Little Santa Alter (Lotto & a nice story), Prisma Codes (my first event).
Least Favourite: Probably a toss up between Moonfest and Valentines as I quit both events early once I got what I wanted. Both events had weak dialogue, boring stories, and meh shops contributing to them being at the bottom of the pile.
Disappointing - CCC: From a gameplay perspective I’d put this 50/50 as Some of the event mechanics were incredibly annoying for this one with time gating, event missions (kill 30 enemies yay), and constant diversions (buying BB’s crap) but the back half saved it from a gameplay perspective as the Phoenix Feather drop rates were truly wonderful, the extra missions were really fun, and BB is a wonderful CQ specialist (10/10/10 right out of the event) making a great reward for going for 100%. The story is probably where I was most disappointed as the deus ex machina ending, meh dialogue , and over focus on Melt really ruined the plot for me. In the end this wasn’t a bad event but I went in expecting a Camelot level event and instead got something closer to E Pluribus Unum.
