>1. Improvement of translation.
Looking forward to all the exciting *translation*.
I hope da Vinci lines in shop and enchance menús get translated
After 5 years, will they finally have the technology?
probably not, Lasengle is a small indie company after all ^(/s)
Not nearly as small as Riot Games /s
At least you know the numbers on your abilities there.

-Bungie approved post
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.
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?
> 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...
Sad for those who've cleared Lostbelt prologue. We won't heard those onee-san voice at the shop anymore...
Those lines are NEVER added to the respective servants?! Really?!
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.
I'm most looking forward to Herc's translation
I really wanna see how they translate Candice's lines
#CANDICE SQ GET YOU CASTORIA?
More painful than the balls version
I can't believe all this time he was really talking about >!updog!<.
>!Nothing. What's up with you?!<
A Rosebud I sense in you
welp, walk straight into that one
Who the hell is steve jobs?
Someone who died of ligma
Maybe they’re finally giving us the “Artoria” name.
Edit: I’m being sarcastic
Melty Blood called her Artoria, but then Nasu made some "phonecalls" and the name mysteriously changed to Altria the following day.
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.
"My wish for the Holy Grail is to change Altria to Artoria. That's it."
You're so hopeless Pekoyama46-kun
**^Just ^kill ^anyone ^who ^calls ^her ^Altria**
nah, not even the Holy Grail can change that, we probably going to need the Dragon Balls for this one
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!"
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.
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.
>Tell Nasu even Arutoria would be better
>Nasu decides to follow fans wishes
>Nasu himself informs localization team over the phone
Localization of "Altria" has now been changed to UwUtoria
>Nasu heard you say "Aroo-toria"
*~~the monkey's paw~~ Kirei's hand curls*
[Here to leave this link](https://i.imgur.com/980y0gS.png)
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.
Must note that there is a tobacco company named Altria, and their Japanese is written as アルトリア
At least Nasu can't force the community to call her Castria 🤮
No worries, I'll call her that for everyone.
\>start referring to players who quit after not rolling her as "having gotten Castria'ted"
No, that's Type Moon fault. So blame Nasu for that.
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*
Well I’m still betting we’re getting something Artoria related:)
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.
Probably removing all of the prostates
But they need to be emptied first!
translation of money from our bank accounts to theirs
Like the ancient text of tf2
"Updated localisation files"
"Client Stability Improved."
- War Thunder, every update.
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...
Since launch, there's been a Caster Cu line talking about Morgan when he means the Morrigan, so I hope they change that.
Lord she comin
no doubt in my mind that the servers will crash once its over
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.
>- Date & Time
>2022-07-03 21:00 - 07-04 02:00 PDT
5 hours?! 1 hour more than usual?
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
What's the difference in drops for 5th difficulty ember nodes?
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.
Oh that's dope.
Yay more quartz!
But if maintenance gets extended, do we get LONG LONG CASTORIA?
Or rather with every hour, her ahoge gets bigger
By 36 hours it's going to be long enough as a leash.
*That lab meme* At last, in game Corgitoria

_insert sexy saxophone jazz_
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/).
Wow, NA has held off for that much longer, huh. Now that's some good exclusive QoL.
Wish they'd started it 2 hours earlier ....
Oh boy the *translation improvement* must be really really good, oh my.
Thank god maintainance here starts at midnight and I dont need to actively wait for it and just have to sleep it out.
5 more quartz to the collection
Maybe to hopefully sustain the servers
5 hours for the 5th anniversary, it all makes sense
Can someone give a countdown? I'm pretty terrible with time zones, so it would help a lot
Try this one, it is usually up to date https://fgo.mitsunee.com/
Now I need one of those for JP
*I can hear the bells tolling for a lot of users saint quartz*...

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.
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.
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.
Here it is, the moment we've been anticipating and dreading for years. Good luck to everyone.
I know that I won't pull castoria but I'm gonna hope I somehow do
...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.
Probably so that people won't crash the servers all at once trying to roll lol.
Gonna happen anyway.
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.
Why so late y-y
I was really hoping it wouldnt be at 21:00h PDT.
Yeah, last year they did the anniversary maintenance during the afternoon, not at night, right? 5am EST is oof.
6 am MESZ is also oof
Now we truly and really can celebrate July 4th and the 5th anniversary of fgo at the same time
Castoria, President of the United States of America and successor to the glorious Funny Valentine. Raise for the national anthem everybody

Wonder how ZTL is doing
Maybe he still believes Ooku will come before anni and everything was a sike moment and he was right all along
Still have no idea why he wants Ooku before the anni so bad
Most likely ~~greed~~ quartz
probably the 48 juicy SQ
Man, I sure can’t wait for “Castria” to get here…
Dear god, Nasu please let us have Castoria instead :(
Castria has come to castrate your orbs :D
Jokes aside, since she *technically* isnt the same Arto.....sorry Altria, then there is a chance.......maybe ~~Nasu, not even the localization team likes it. Just give up~~
Wallet-kun is quivering… Hopefully free sq pulls through
OMG I'm so ready to use my quartz in this... *Improvement of translation*
May the gacha gods always be in our favor.
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.
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.
They take it as normal maintenance instead of special occasion which bring down the hype after streaming.
AW LAWD SHE COMIN'
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.
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.
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.
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
I bet they'll still ask.
When is she coming?
Probably by the 15th after Ooku.
Damn ZTL is never living this one down is he?
Permanent clown status.
Cant say is totallt undeserved tho
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
Never because she's been replaced by some girl with a weirdo name, Castria.
At what minute ,second and microsecond?
Let's be real, this could be the last post for the next few days and have the pinned comment on the help thread just be "MAINTENANCE JULY 3RD" and there would *still* be people asking "Castoria when??!??!1!?"
> Okay finally people can stop asking when Castoria is coming.
This is probably what most people will call "jinxing it".
Will she be coming around the mountain?
a fine birthday gift for the 4th
quartz for the saint throne
[I WONDER **WHAT'S IT FOR?**](#HokusaiAra)
lol I like how they acknowledge the fact that the servers **WILL** be overloaded the moment maintenance is over
I'm just hyped about the Great/super success increase rate, sitting on like 900 xp cards and a bunch of servants to level.
A STORM IS APPROACHING
*She is coming*
I've been waiting patiently for this the last couple of weeks and now it's closer than ever i can almost taste the flavor of getting Castoria and oh boy its sweet, with a pinch of salt tho,weird
STAY F*CKING CALM
The corgi comet is coming. Brace yourself for the impact......also the blue doggo star will be on the sky as well <3, so make your wish
Guess I’ll be doing rolls the next morning. Was hoping they’d do it earlier in the day. But such is how it goes.
and now it begins
Now the real question, do we get long castoria?
Not too bad for Europe, everything should come back up 10/11 am on the 4th.
It will be 4th July where I live
So we can expect the Anniversary to start on 07-04 02:00 PDT ?
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.
So when is anni then?
This maintenance is most likely for anni.
Ah so they pulled a fast one on the boys. I see
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.
Praying for early pity.
Monkey's paw, early pity granted but Castoria isn't implemented into the game for another 2 years on an unannounced rate-up.
Early pity but only servants released before castoria have it until NY 2024. /s
Plottwist 5th anniversary is just cancelled and castoria isn't released on Avalon Le fey
So what now? Cú Caster is the new protag of Avalon le Fae then?
Yknow if it means quality CasCu content, I'll take it xD
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
The day of reckoning is coming soon...
Dread it, run from it, her banner arrives all the same and now it's almost here!
Somewhere out there, a priest smiles.
Aw man, I wanted to use that time to do the new quests for the tickets
SHE'S COMING SHE'S COMING!!!!
*insert gorilla scream*
1. Improvement of translation. "
Yeah of course... just that.
Bell tolls for my rocks
Still grinding for that 166m QP [*sad noises*]
Not counting Fragments the free sq from the social media campaign and new challenges will put me around 960 sq. Gonna stream rolling for her on Monday and hope it goes well. I'd like to save the 78 sq worth of frags I already have plus all the frags this event will give as the basis for my Morgan fund, but let's see how the gacha gods want to be...
Everyone excited for Castoria but here I am excited for the multitude of things we'll probably get that will knock Clairvoyance on it's ass. Here's hoping we get the 3 Support List update early.
Poor poor NA Server-kun
The timing on this is a pain in the ass. I’m gonna be traveling on that day. Hopefully I can still get wifi and roll castoria and the gssr
I’m kind of disappointed it won’t be on July 3rd but I’ll be up at 3 am July 4th to summon anyways lol 😂
she is coming...
I’m not ready.
If there's no extended maintenance it will be ending just as I'm getting out of work. Here's hoping it doesn't crash and for some good uh *improvement of translation* for us all.
