all right, so this hit like last month or something and it'd totally slipped my radar, but amazon's quick shipping is a wonderful thing.

btw, does anyone know if this is an updated translation or something? google sadly did not provide the answer, lol, but i swear I don't remember there having been quite so much profanity in DotFB as there is here in MotS. The story isn't any less enjoyable or anything because of it, but it just caught me off guard in places was all.

No offense, but it doesn't matter what you think. Only the original poster knows what he was really thinking. Anyone can speculate. That's not going to solve the case of the missing question.

(a) chill out, it's not life or death or anything and SCAR392 has as much right to speculate about the question as anyone else here
(b) 'the case of the missing question' actually sounds like a fun sort of thread :O

@CaviarMeths, @Cyb3Rnite: I'm going to assume you two didn't see the disgusting things I deleted from this thread. I consider myself fully justified in using the terminology I did to describe those who chose to post such filth.

Obamacare itself is going to affect me far more than a room full of elected officials not showing up to work and the media circus surrounding them. i am not looking forward to next year.

that said, here's hoping everyone in Washington can get their heads outta their butts soon so we can keep the world economy limping along at least.

If you hadn't felt the need to be so rude after having been asked to stop insulting other users, you wouldn't have been temp-banned. the Rules here are the same for everyone. Best of luck on your site, though!

@Aqueous: i figured that one out this morning while experimenting with the seeds for srs, they do indeed go grey when you've hit a new support rank. i can't explain why they're sometimes greyed out at the beginning of battle, though — that's what had me so confused before about their activation and use.

also, Stahl sucks and is boring and it is killing me that i'm having to drag him along to get his supports, lol. aargh i just want to leave him in the dust. Gregor is much more interesting and i'm having fun seeing what he has to say to everyone else :3

They'd get banned quickly, just as they do now. Plus, blocking people could probably be achieved easily.

Actually, in discussions with Ant about a PM system, we've been against it because we'd have no way of monitoring said discussions without having to break the privacy of people attempting to have PM discussions, They'd no longer be PMs, just 'M's, so Ant's got a solution in mind to help users send messages to one another, it's just that to my knowledge it's gonna be a public system. anyone will be able to see what you're saying even though it's technically a direct message from one user to the other not sent via forums or main site comment thread. If you're looking for a truly private way to chat with one another, Nintendo Life is not now and likely will never be the place to do so, I'm afraid. We are not interested in giving ourselves yet another avenue for spammers to go after our users, nor are we interested in having to delve into what should be a personal discussion between two users.

As for solving the necro problem, it's one of the things that's in the works, and we can only continue to beg your patience.

I was leaning towards digital copies as I would not have to carry around cartridges (and I recently lost my copy of Super Mario 3D land) but my 3DS recently died and I had to send my console off to be repaired. Nintendo advised me that they could not guarantee that my 3DS would not be fully wiped when they returned it to me which was a bit scary because I spent quite a lot of money downloading titles.

There is something about purchasing a game in a shop which is brand new and sealed, and also having that new game smell.....too weird?

Not weird at all, my friend, and i absolutely agree with you on the former. It worries me too, which is one of the reasons I choose physical.

@Knuckles: You don't understand, it's a consumable item. You can only use it during battle, but sometimes in battle it's available for use and sometimes it's greyed out. I'm asking whether anyone knows any of the specific rules behind the Seed of Trust and its use, because i've only found vague-ish stuff about it online.

The only things I know about it for sure are that it only works between units that can support with each other, and they have to be paired up at the time in order to use the item. I have no idea whether their successful use is based on many times the units have to attack during a given battle, how much exp is earned between them during that particular battle, how many turns have passed/what turn the battle is on, which level of Support you're grinding toward or how much 'support exp' must have been earned, what kind of ground you're standing on, etc. and so forth. At one point I had thought you had to be standing on a sparkling patch of ground in order to have the Seed of Trust be available for use, but that theory went out the window this morning. I also have no idea whether or not you're guaranteed to go up a level of support or not after having used one, and I won't without more testing, so if anyone else can shed some light, I'm all ears. :3

As for how Support works in general, i actually found a pretty good page at Serene's Forest here detailing how things go. Looks like I'll be hitting those Scramble maps quite a bit, lol. I'm just wondering about the Seed of Trust itself and what conditions must be met before it can be available for use. :3

does anyone have tips for grinding supports? i have this wild idea that it's feasible somehow for me to 100% this game (ha, it's gonna take forever, i know i know), and i'm not exactly sure on how to use the Seed of Trust — sometimes they seem to work, most of the time they don't. i think i read somewhere that if both units in a Pair go up a level they'll have a Support convo ready to go after battle, but that hasn't proved consistent in practice.

There has been far too much drama in here lately with the off-topic crap, and to have this starting up after we'd finally gotten that taken care of absolutely blows my mind.
