We’ve been at the bottom ever since that night so it’s nothing new for us it’s been so bad that I found myself missing the 2005/2006 team.
They already bullied the shit out of us lol Lions are now a playoffs team with new players, Vikings has been on and off but they’re always on against us and Green Bay might not be a thing for long since there’s drama with Rodgers.
Probably should stop right there before we derail this whole thread
It’s a… simple enough revelation that I should have probably figured out sooner, but it does take a good load off my shoulders now that I have it ‘clearer’ what the goal is. It helps me to not really worry about a few things I’d been considering before for the sake of ‘realism’.
Don’t get me wrong, I definitely understand the point of emotional pain and trauma as narrative tools- And we’ll be seeing them with Seeker, Forlorn, Aki, Victoria, the Koryos, etc, but it’s never going to be the endgoal. By the end of this story, everyone in the League is getting a happy ending.
Victoria’s probably the one character I’ve never seen as a RO though, her place on the story is a much different one. She worked out what her heart wanted and how to get it long before the MC (or the League!) came into the picture.
And sadly for… Gloria, Stratton, and probably everyone else that likes the status quo, what Victoria wants, Victoria gets.
Considering we had an adrenaline crash after being in that supermode for like a minute at the best, there’s still a price to pay but at least it won’t be a fatal heart attack like Possessing Spirit will do it to you in Kengan Asura.
I should be clear, the MC’s super mode doesn’t work the same way the Advance does (i.e. setting your heart on overdrive for faster circulation and such), it’s similar in the sense that it is also a biological process developed for the sake of combating a physically superior foe.
That said, yes, there’s a tradeoff for power. It just so happens that unlike others, the cost for you isn’t actually burning out forever.
