It used to be Corrin in the spotlight, but for all the wrong reasons. Before Corrin, there were various other main characters under a similar divided spotlight such as Micaiah and so on.

But I’ve been around for quite a while, and from what I’ve seen up to this point, it seems that Edelgard is the biggest source of controversy and remains to be a daily primary talking point of 3H’s story. Seems to me that her writing has sparked recurring waves of black, white, and gray perspectives from the overall audience and after almost a year’s quarter after the game’s release, the symptoms appear to remain perpetual or perhaps even gradually increasing in activity.

What do you think?

This is my first Fire Emblem game, so my experience is limited, but I have to say yes. She is very polarizing.
With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue, dissolving the nerves has just begun.
Listening to Lionel, All Night Long, (all night), yeeeah, (all night)...
I would say yes, because unlike Micaiah she has a lot of fans, and unlike Corrin she has fans.
Any contact with the chamber floor will result in an 'unsatisfactory' mark on your official testing record followed by death. Good luck!

Looks like a fact at this rate.

Goes whitout saying. The fact that it brings up so many people to show their true colors, is pretty telling.

Oh most definitely. I am
actually impressed how much she repeatedly divides the community straight down the middle...

Honestly it’s good storytelling that people actually rationalise and believe in one path more than the other. The fact that you either hate her or love her indicates that this game has done well in showing that some villains have goals, even if some people don’t agree with what has to be done to achieve those goals. Great character, it’s nice to see that we can choose to side with someone so polarising who’s actions are mostly emotional based rather than the usual fire emblem lord where it’s just “for the people yay!!!!”

For now. Just wait until my boy Julius the antichrist is remade. (jk, but I think Arvis would be rather polarising)

Edelgard is a f***ing triumph in terms of writing a character that connects with the user base. It doesnt matter if its for good of bad reasons, people cant stop arguing and then, just like in wrestling, she is in the spotlight all the time. Bravo
