I've played all previous events and essentially cleared them out without minding the grind, but Saber Wars has me burnt out... I thought my F2P self would be fine even without having any gold Sabers other than Lily, but boy I was wrong. I have to balance between having a team with an appropriate % bonus and a team that can actually clear the higher nodes, both of which are super hard when the best servants are only available one at a time through a support. I have a LB Bloom and Stars, but that doesn't turn the event into easy mode; it just barely gives my servants a fighting chance. Farming MHZ isn't impossible, but it's super difficult, which makes grinding actually unpleasant for the first time. Going down to farm Scathach is easier, but I'm getting half the Artoria Points I'd get from MHZ, which puts the goal even further out of reach.

My problem isn't that I can't clear the nodes, it's that clearing them is difficult and requires too much luck for something I need to do repeatedly.

Am I the only one who's stopped liking this event? I'm at 1m points, but I've lost the will to aim for even 1.5 by the time the event ends; I think I'll save my apples for kinder events.

Idunno, I guess I just wanted to rant; sorry if someone was offended by this lol. Will future events also going to basically require you to have multiple specific and 5-stars if you want to complete them?

I generally dislike the idea of bonus servants because you pretty much have to bring them to every quest throughout the event to min-max the rewards, and it gets boring really fast.
Saber Wars really takes the cake by giving bonus to the most boring class in the game right now.
It's basically AoE sabers(Artoria faces+Mordred/Altera/Nero/Fergus), Okita/Caesar, and Gilles.
And the easy button is to bring an MLB PB Okita and spam quests over and over.
GudaGuda was also grindy and had bonus servants, but it was actually fun.
Saber Wars? Not so much.

I skipped Saber Wars in Jp the first time, I'm now skipping it again. The point grinds are always the weakest events IMO from a gameplay standpoint.

I think if anything risked burning me out it was Christmas and the lotto. Felt like it was a waste if I didn't grind out as many lotto boxes as possible.

Saber Wars...it's fine. Of course maybe because I've been getting a lot of Sabers since I started playing so putting together a team is easy. Have very few 5*s, but 2 of the 3 are Sabers. Maybe it's less boring because it is my Okita, but seeing her unleash super powerful death is still fun.

Maybe it is because of side goals. I mostly want to keep going in the event to farm more drops and bond points. Getting closer to hitting Nero's max bond and that will be the first servant I get to that point. The event itself isn't overly thrilling, but I haven't found it painful.

I highly enjoy this event because all I have to do is equip CE’s and “BOOM!!!” My servants can blast through anything and everything regardless of enemy class (unless they have 1m HP like UHX...)

I’m a lucky one for having legit sabers, and I will admit that an event like this does gank anyone who just so happens to not have good servants like the event demands. I almost want it to stop so people like TC won’t continue to feel so stressed out.

I never particularly liked this event on either server.

I just did the bare minimum and made the best use of what's available (basically Scathach's node) for the frequent rare drops.

Rashomon blows nards and I'm going to low-hanging fruit it since I know it reruns when everyone has access to MUCH better stuff. Going to ignore the Sanzang event since it's f'ing daft and there's no welfare.
