I hope da Vinci lines in shop and enchance menús get translated


Jltwo

After 5 years, will they finally have the technology?


dinliner08

probably not, Lasengle is a small indie company after all ^(/s)


DarKav1411

Not nearly as small as Riot Games /s


MADTYR301

At least you know the numbers on your abilities there.


Kodriin

>Lasengle is a small indie company after all -Bungie approved post


Hardric62

How much of a joke is that one, because I'll be honest, I'd *really* like to find translations for the sho lines of both Da Vinci after all that time.


Mister_SP

Well, that's the only one that has no translation anywhere. Even Da Vinci doesn't get those lines. It would be nice, though. No clue how likely, but after the Ascension lines a year or two ago, this has to be next on the list, right?


sdarkpaladin

> Even Da Vinci doesn't get those lines. I always wonder why they made it like this. It's not hard to just add it to Da Vinci and Da Vinci Rider. But no... I need to keep visiting her in the shop to hear the lines...


Yukiru_05

Sad for those who've cleared Lostbelt prologue. We won't heard those onee-san voice at the shop anymore...


YanFan123

Those lines are NEVER added to the respective servants?! Really?!


ScubaSteve728

The people above are incorrect, Da Vinci Caster's shop lines are in game, you have to go to her voice lines in her Spirit Origin list to find them though. [https://imgur.com/a/jqXFGXK](https://imgur.com/a/jqXFGXK) Edit: Da Vinci Rider does NOT have her lines in her spirit origin list, so they remain untranslated in game.


haagen17

I'm most looking forward to Herc's translation

I really wanna see how they translate Candice's lines

AlterMagna

Maybe they’re finally giving us the “Artoria” name. Edit: I’m being sarcastic


Best-Sea

Melty Blood called her Artoria, but then Nasu made some "phonecalls" and the name mysteriously changed to Altria the following day.


Hero_Of_Memez

Out of all the things for that man to be an obstinate fucker about, it has to be the dumbest fucking one. If I got to make one meaningless wish, it would be to change the name back to *what it should be*, and to watch Nasu stew over it.


Pekoyama46

"My wish for the Holy Grail is to change Altria to Artoria. That's it."


Kodriin

You're so hopeless Pekoyama46-kun *drops knife*   **^Just ^kill ^anyone ^who ^calls ^her ^Altria**


King_of_Nothinmuch

Artoria Avenger?


dinliner08

nah, not even the Holy Grail can change that, we probably going to need the Dragon Balls for this one


Kilef

I so so badly want to watch Nasu do an english Q&A but everyone agrees to use Altria and watch him get very confused and embarrassed at his own stubborn engrish. "Altria? Do you mean Altera? Altera wasn't in Stay Night what's wrong with you people!"


Radiant-Hope-469

I got curious, so I tested it with DeepL. アルトリア gives Altria as the result. But if this is used, アルトリア・ペンドラゴン, it gives Artoria Pendragon instead.


Torafuku

Which would still be Artoria in both if we translate the katakana correctly, or Arutoria technically. Anything is better than Altria, i want nasu to explain his decision with a straight face.


Kodriin

>Tell Nasu even Arutoria would be better >Nasu decides to follow fans wishes >Nasu himself informs localization team over the phone New Patchnotes: Localization of "Altria" has now been changed to UwUtoria >Nasu heard you say "Aroo-toria" *~~the monkey's paw~~ Kirei's hand curls*


BlitzAceSamy

> UwUtoria [Here to leave this link](https://i.imgur.com/980y0gS.png)


Best-Sea

The way DeepL works is that if someone punches a term in enough times, it'll start to pick up on the context and figure out that something is a term it doesn't know, so it'll try to find an English equivalent on Google. When I was translating a game called Comic Party through it, for the first few months it translated "Comipa" (short for the title of the game) as "Komipa". Eventually, I entered so damn many lines of dialog that contained that term that DeepL figured out it was important and tried to find an English translation online. So it started translating the term as "Comic Party" (in full). After a few months of not entering anything Comic Party related into DeepL, it changed the default translation of the term to something else.


BlitzAceSamy

Must note that there is a tobacco company named Altria, and their Japanese is written as アルトリア https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%82%A2%E3%83%AB%E3%83%88%E3%83%AA%E3%82%A2


24den

At least Nasu can't force the community to call her Castria 🤮


BrosefAmelion

No worries, I'll call her that for everyone.


Kodriin

\>start referring to players who quit after not rolling her as "having gotten Castria'ted"


Radiant-Hope-469

No, that's Type Moon fault. So blame Nasu for that.


mschonberg

Toggleable option to switch between Artoria and Altria. And maybe as a fun bonus, take some data on how many active members switch it to Artoria *Please it’s all I ask I’m tired of reading her name as a tobacco company*


AlterMagna

Well I’m still betting we’re getting something Artoria related:)


hikoboshi_sama

I *wish*. But i'm not too hopeful. Nasu has been insistent he knows more about how Artoria should be in English more than actual fucking english speakers and I don't see that changing anytime soon.


cybernet377

Probably removing all of the prostates

RestinPsalm

You joke, but giving a translation to previously untranslated content is a common stream surprise in NA ones. I still remember when NPs lacked translations...


WithoutLog

Since launch, there's been a Caster Cu line talking about Morgan when he means the Morrigan, so I hope they change that.


Gen0flame

Lord she comin


odd2oul

no doubt in my mind that the servers will crash once its over


a_speeder

Maybe, it ends at a very inconvenient time for most Americans so that will probably reduce the amount of players reopening the game at once.


nevrHope

>- Date & Time >2022-07-03 21:00 - 07-04 02:00 PDT 5 hours?! 1 hour more than usual?


asagiri2040

Either because there is extra stuff to be implemented (there has been longer than usual maintenance before for this reason), or because this may be the point in JP where standard maintenance increased to 5 hours.


Ebo87

Yeah, we are most likely also getting the 5th difficulty Chaldea Gate spots, to farm embers and QP. And possibly a few other early QoL improvements. Biggest one I'm hoping we get early is the increase in support slots, that's going to be a problem with Castoria so having it alongside her will be amazing. I would also appreciate if we got the ability to speed up skills too. Just the support thing I could see taking an extra hour to make sure everything is in working order before going live.


skilledwarman

I'm tempering my expectations. I certainly think we will get *something* early this anniversary, but im not hyping myself up for any specific thing


Ebo87

Of course, the only thing I'm realistically expecting are the 5star ember nodes, since we already got the coins system early, and so that is the next step. The rest would be nice too, but I am not holding my breath for anything else.


asagiri2040

Yeah, I'd say there is a decent chance of expanded support slots. That's literally the next thing on the list when looking at where NA is in terms of early QoL/UI updates (i.e. right now NA is updated through JP August 2021, and expanded supports were implemented in JP September 2021). Though I'd say the lowkey best early update would be the UI adjustment to the support list refresh button (JP October 2021), so I can stop accidentally hitting the skills button every time.


necronoxide

What's the difference in drops for 5th difficulty ember nodes?


Ebo87

They only drop the 5star embers, 9 per run, so that's equivalent to 27 4star embers. You would need to do 3 runs of the current highest difficulty ember run to just have a CHANCE to match that, but you might also get 1 or 2 3star embers in there, which will set you back. With the 5th difficulty ember node you are always guaranteed only 5star embers, and always 9, even if there are only 7 enemies to kill in total (the formation is 3-3-1, so you won't have to worry about refund when farming with an arts servant, since only the final wave has 1 enemy). This is how people can realistically get their servants to level 120, and because we already got that system early, I assume we will get the 5th difficulty node too.


necronoxide

Oh that's dope.


nevrHope

Yay more quartz!


kingkazul400

But if maintenance gets extended, do we get LONG LONG CASTORIA?


YuuHikari

Or rather with every hour, her ahoge gets bigger


Undividedbyzero

By 36 hours it's going to be long enough as a leash. *That lab meme* At last, in game Corgitoria


Lord_Of_Compliments

Nazrael99

_insert sexy saxophone jazz_


Mistigrum

I searched through old JP announcements and it seems like 5 hours long maintenances became the standard [back in May 2017](https://news.fate-go.jp/maintenance/page/15/).


asagiri2040

Wow, NA has held off for that much longer, huh. Now that's some good exclusive QoL.


kalirion

Wish they'd started it 2 hours earlier ....


nolonger1-A

Oh boy the *translation improvement* must be really really good, oh my.


ZhuTeLun

Thank god maintainance here starts at midnight and I dont need to actively wait for it and just have to sleep it out.


asian_hans

5 more quartz to the collection


Trickster2599

Maybe to hopefully sustain the servers


Zero1343

5 hours for the 5th anniversary, it all makes sense


Shitty-Weeb2772

Can someone give a countdown? I'm pretty terrible with time zones, so it would help a lot

I'm just sad they couldn't arrange it to be in the middle of the day like it was last year, which was pretty convenient. Oh well.


Rednal291

Plot twist: There's surprise maintenance during the convention panel and Castoria is available for a few hours, then it goes down at night for longer maintenance adding all the QoL stuff.


asagiri2040

I'd like the plot twist to be that 2-san's "and one more thing" is him revealing the maintenance period is now actually going to begin right after the panel and *end* at 21:00 PDT.


randomran14

Here it is, the moment we've been anticipating and dreading for years. Good luck to everyone.


TheBestSlimeBoi

I know that I won't pull castoria but I'm gonna hope I somehow do


FloofyTails4Life

...what? They're actually having the maintenance at the normal maintenance time? I'm pretty sure that that's *actually* unheard of for the anniversary updates. They've always had the game go down earlier in the day and come back up when the stream ended before. I wonder what prompted the change. E: Upon further examination, I can only confirm that the first and fourth anniversaries functioned like that. The information I can find regarding the second and third is ambiguous, and I am far too tired right now to look into it further.


Rehdex

Probably so that people won't crash the servers all at once trying to roll lol.


maladjustedmatt

Gonna happen anyway.


chainer1216

Theyre probably also adding in things that weren't originally in the 5th anniversary, like the new dailies,, so the extra time will be needed to ensure it's all stable and working together.


TKWhiteStar

Why so late y-y


Mastreos

I was really hoping it wouldnt be at 21:00h PDT.


kalirion

Yeah, last year they did the anniversary maintenance during the afternoon, not at night, right? 5am EST is oof.


NajamSaeid

6 am MESZ is also oof


existence100

Now we truly and really can celebrate July 4th and the 5th anniversary of fgo at the same time

Nerve-Whole

Wallet-kun is quivering… Hopefully free sq pulls through


caaarl_hofner

OMG I'm so ready to use my quartz in this... *Improvement of translation* May the gacha gods always be in our favor.


RobustHardLongMeat

I'll summon Castoria at night If I don't get her I'd rather cry myself to sleep rather than live with the pain the entire day.


ak_011885

The timing of the maintenance window is disappointing but what can you do. Maybe the game will suddenly go offline in the middle of the day for "emergency" maintenance and come right back up at the usual reset time. Good luck to everyone.


ReizeiMako

They take it as normal maintenance instead of special occasion which bring down the hype after streaming.


Suspicious-Drummer68

AW LAWD SHE COMIN'


LihLin22

So the time has come at last. Castoria is coming for your Saint Quartz. And Arts will make their grand rise once again. Embrace for impact that is Castoria.


Adam-Yeat

July 3rd. Judgement Day. The day The 5th FGO Anniversary in NA begin. And Castoria is available for pulling. And the Gates to Hell shall either open or close shut With the Key forged using the Saltiest of Salts... shaped by the Hammer of Pain... within the furnace burning with the fiery Soul of Fury and Regret... within the Staked Heart made of wasted Saint Quartz. Echoes of the Screams of both Pain and Ecstasy... shall spread throughout the fandom. With one girl... Wielding a blood soaked staff... standing in the middle of a hellish wasteland... While standing behind a garden filled with flowers freshly bloomed... a path leading to Avalon... a path only a few shall take. Which side will you be on... on the day of reckoning.


EDNivek

Kinda surprised they're not going into maintenance during the stream or pre-loading it the day before, going into maintenance for an hour during the stream to flick the on switch.


crazywarriorxx

Okay finally people can stop asking when Castoria is coming. Edit: better put an /s if not I’ll ban you for two weeks until Castoria’s banner is over. /s


Mastreos

I bet they'll still ask.


DominusDeLupis

When is she coming?


Mastreos

Probably by the 15th after Ooku.


Domagonic

Damn ZTL is never living this one down is he? Permanent clown status.


GoldMoon0

Cant say is totallt undeserved tho


RanceSama3006

To be fair at least the dude prepared everyone for the worst situations damn near expecting a comet to hit earth before castoria comes on rate up


Jltwo

Never because she's been replaced by some girl with a weirdo name, Castria.

Maximilian_Sinigr

and now it begins


Jack_King814

Now the real question, do we get long castoria?


Zero1343

Not too bad for Europe, everything should come back up 10/11 am on the 4th.


RGBarrios

It will be 4th July where I live


Aldi1234

So we can expect the Anniversary to start on 07-04 02:00 PDT ?


Rhinostirge

Assuming my subconscious doesn't wake me up at 5 AM EST whispering "hey go get us some dopamine", this works out. Give the people slavering to roll ASAP a couple of hours to clear out and the servers to stabilize. Browse roll threads for salt over breakfast, then roll once the servers are stabilized. Of course the Castoria cult is wound up enough that the servers might not stabilize until Tuesday, but eh.


Mattc7468

So when is anni then?


Zulhoof

This maintenance is most likely for anni.


Mattc7468

Ah so they pulled a fast one on the boys. I see


CarelessCourier

Hhhhhng. Monday. Workday. Finished around my lunchtime. I actually kinda wish for the maintenance to last an hour extra so I can stop my self from rolling whilst on the clock, and instead enjoy myself when I get home.


Chaddius1

Praying for early pity.


datnoob9113

Monkey's paw, early pity granted but Castoria isn't implemented into the game for another 2 years on an unannounced rate-up.


KazeDaze

Early pity but only servants released before castoria have it until NY 2024. /s


datnoob9113

Plottwist 5th anniversary is just cancelled and castoria isn't released on Avalon Le fey


GoldMoon0

So what now? Cú Caster is the new protag of Avalon le Fae then?


keepoffmymanacookies

Yknow if it means quality CasCu content, I'll take it xD


datnoob9113

What if she's still the protagonist but she's just not released as a servant?

Same. Sorry Castoria, but CasCu is my ~~husband~~ teacher (my hunky, extremely attractive teacher) so we need to side with him
