    Pretty sure a lot of you are already playing this game. If you are heavily invested in the Fate/ Universe as i am, or even just generally interested try it out!

    One of the most popular mobile games in Japan out currently, it is a story of the Chaldea Security Organization. In a alternate future situated in the same universe as all related works, it tells a completely new story.With new faces, and old coming together to save the world from destruction let us embark on a wonderful journey across time and space. Summon servants, from across mythology, and history. Who shall you meet? Who will you have the fortune hearing "are you my master?" from.

    --------------------------
    2015 AD.
    The final era, when sorcery still existed.

    Society had been build by human hands, but it was magi who grasped the truth of the world.
    Sorcery, which governs the skills of past humans that science cannot explain, and science, which gathers the technology of future humanity that sorcery cannot reach.
    Though the two disciplines are absolutely incompatible, they are similar in just one respect.
    Whether sorcery or science, the pursuers of both seek continued prosperity. Or in other words, to protect the future of humanity.

    The Chaldea Security Organization.
    A secret agency founded to prevent the certain extinction of the human race, by observing both the world unseen by sorcery as well as the world immeasurable by science.
    Researchers from every field, both magical and mundane, were gathered under a single goal: to extend the reign of human history, above all else.

    1950 AD. Phenomenon Recording Cyber-Daemon "LAPLACE" completed.
    1990 AD. Pseudo Global Environment Model "CHALDEAS" completed.
    1999 AD. Near-Future Observation Lens "SHIVA" completed.
    2004 AD. Heroic Spirit Summoning System "FATE" completed.
    2015 AD. Spiritual Computer "TRISMEGISTUS" completed.

    With one promising success after another, Chaldea was able to guarantee the security of human history for the next hundred years.

    However, in 2015...

    Without warning, the future that had been observed by SHIVA vanished.
    Through calculations, it became clear... or rather, it was proven that humanity would go extinct in 2016.

    Why had this happened? How had it happened? Who was responsible?
    The researchers of Chaldea were plagued by questions.

    But in the midst of their doubt, SHIVA observed a new anomaly.
    2004 AD, Japan, a certain provincial city.
    An "unobservable region" that hadn't been there before suddenly appeared.

    Assuming that this must be the cause of humanity's extinction, Chaldea decided to utilize the still-untested "sixth experiment".
    That is, time travel.
    A forbidden ritual that converts the practitioner into spirit particles and sends them into the past, allowing them to interfere with events to locate and destroy space-time singularities.

    Its name is the quest for the Holy Grail: "Grand Order".

    The name for those who would rise up against human history for the sake of humans, and fight fate itself.


    ---------------

    Take note that it is currently a Japanese only game atm. If you are already playing the JP side of PAD you probably know how to download Japanese games. For IOS users that do not know how to get Fate/Grand Order, these instructions in the link below will suffice.

    Apologies for reviving an old thread, but I hear this is getting an English localization soon.

    I was flip flopping on starting a JP account so I think I might jump in during the NA release.

    I heard the rates of the gacha aren't generous (something about it maybe dropping items instead of servants?), is the game reasonably doable with no or little IAP?

    English version will be out for this year, mainland chinese already been out for an year and taiwan version will be launched early this year too.


    Rates...are...very bad, really. Expect 5 star rates to be like 1% or something..i saved 300 saint quartz ( 10 rolls of 10) and got only 2 5 stars.

    Seems the English release is planned for August.

    The bad rates are a bummer though. (Is the game at least generous with handing out quartz)

    Bad rates aren't necessarily a bad thing if a game is not designed around needing multiple 5* level units to enjoy the game.

    the good thing about fgo is that even 2 stars are useful, hell some of the 2 stars are actually op as fuck if you consider that they are at the bottom of the tier listing.

    Unlike other games, 2-3 stars are very useful, 5 star are very resistant to power creeping, some units remain extremely good even after 1+year.


    The bad side..is ...the gacha.. i´ve read horror stories of people spending 3000 quartz and getting nearly nothing.

    Pd: and yes, the game is actually very generous with the free quartz..not that it matters anyways huh?

    Ha-ha. Who wouldve thought id see a thread i made a year back that got no recognition getting revived, after comming to check on this occasion :0


    I myself will be playing both the english version and the japanese version still.


    Fact- you do not need any 5 star servants to play. For all intentions it is a single player game, and every servant is usable.

    Fact 2- the rates for servants are 1% -ssr, 3% for sr, and 40% for r.

    There is no incentive to have the need to get a rare-er servant due to the fact that every servant is servicable with different skill kits.

    Necessary bump! Thread revival! Next week on the 25th! The game launches in U.S. I'm excited to play. Not excited for who I'll be stuck with when I don't roll who I want.

    Most long time players would recommend to reroll for Waver, but then if youre already playing the japanese version... not much reason to reroll if you only plan on playing for the english translation. For first timers, i do highly as well recommend Waver, he'll take you far.

    I don't like re rolling unless it's fairly painless. Don't run emulator and using IOS so no jailbreak. I'll probably play it casually as I'm limited in time due to other mobiles.

    I've not much knowledge on Fate/ except for F/ Stay Night, so hoping to pick up an English game and fill in story a bit.

    Thanks for the tip in Waver unless I see someone in the wiki I really like!

    I pulled an Arturia and thank god. I have little patience for TM's/Nasuverse random capitalized nouns and general nonsense of which this game has plenty. But I love me some Saber. Game saved.

    I also pulled a Gilgamesh so 5/5 Stars Would Recommend (If you want to be insulted and looked down upon by the Kings of Heroes)

    Best thing about this game is that even 1 stars can be extremely useful if you k ow what you are doing.

    Not like certain games..cough monster strike cough, where anything below 5 stars is doog poop


    The % of 5 star is ridiculously low but even then it makes up with the generous free giveaways, even f2p players like me can get this good.

    Yea.

    Playing the mainland chinese server from bili bili.

    If anyone else plays there you can add me, they are the 2nd oldest fgo server, just right behind the jp one.

    By the way, if you want to easy mode this game, aim for Waver/Merlin.

    If you are whale enough to get the holy triad/Merlin/JeanneAlt/Waver then you can expect to rolfstomp every single content until now.
