But you missed an excellent opportunity to poke fun at the missing chars. Or maybe there's still time for a DLC April Fool's joke. ;)

I read the Nightmare section and after I loled at everything, I was wondering how the hell would an agA BE would work?
 
I CANT BELIEVE THEY NERFED RAPH AGAIN NOW HELL NEVER BEAT STEP BAMCO HATES FRENCH PEOPLE I DONT KNOW WHY THEY ALLOW FRENCH PEOPLE TO EVEN BUY CALIBUR IF RAPH IS SO SHITTY OMGZ BAMCO PATCH RAPH MAKE HIM A GOOD CHARCTR FUCKKKKKKKKKKK
 
Damn.... They increased the difficulty of the just version...AND she has 5 stances.... Dear god, thank you for answering my prayers, and I will go to church this Sunday. Truly, Smarty
 
Why are they nerfing Viola, and why are they getting rid of Pat, and why are they buffing Maxi and Asta, WHYYYY!!!!

Not counting my outburst just now, what's with the thing with Lexia? I'm still upset about everything else, but this is just irrelevant.

It's a joke, now i get it.
 
By Astaroth I thought something was fishy. By Tira I figured it out. Read "Pyrrha now apologizes for every move", I LOLed.
