    Saying 'Better than Fate/Extra's combat system' is possibly the damning-ist with faint praise thing I've ever heard, though. Eventually I just cheated to get more umus.

    Why does nobody like F/X's combat system :(

    Because it's cancer.

    Allow me to elaborate, it is rock paper scissors, with a sequence of R/P/S moves hidden until you trip and stumble across them.

    The only people I've ever heard say, "It isn't that bad," are people that were using emulators with save states.

    It is fucking madness.

    I've beaten F/X, yes. I enjoyed it very much, it was a really cool way of making information, experience, and scouting incredibly important and gave you a real sense of outsmarting your enemies.

    I feel like it's a theory/practice thing. I liked what the game was trying to do with it, but it did end up just being a guessing game a lot of the time in the end. The investigation is strictly linear, as well, reducing the sense of reward.

    Even if you get all the info on a Servant, if you cheat to show all their moves, their other moves are still planned at complete random. I wanted to like it a lot more than I ultimately did; the core janken mechanic simply isn't satisfying enough to make all the very good ideas surrounding it work.

    Maybe with a different base mechanic, a more open-ended plot/investigation structure, it'd work better. As it is, I feel like it's good ideas bogged down by flaws in the core.

    You investigate to get past the hidden RNG only to get a few less hidden RNG.

    That doesn't reward me, it punishes me slightly less than it did before I put in the investigative legwork.
