  1. I remember saying I would never play this game and hated the guy for spending this much, a year later, I watched fate series then wanted more, so I played this game and see the same video and realized Im playing the same game I said I would never play, oh and Its been 3 weeks and planning on spending money

  2. F2P player here watching this whale spent 70k to roll a servants- :>
    My luck sucks but per month I get 1 SSR but good.

    (Flexing my SSRs) :>
    Attila, Cú (Alter), Jack, Semiramis, and Okita Souji (Alter).

  3. When you try to paint video games as evil brain washing money wasting time crunching evil to boomers but everyone in the comments admires the fact he uses Kid Gil and Atalante even tho he's a whale

  4. This is what gambling addiction get into you by playing gatcha games. I've never used any money to microtransactions. I'd bought a full game than playing a game with full of microtransactions to manipulate you pay for those pixels code.

  5. After watching this im not sure if i want to spend money on quartz or no, for one side i could end up like him but for the other side is okitas banner so…

  6. Funniest thing about FGO is that there are 1-3 star servants(easily obtainable) that can outdamage SSRS. A lot of the bosses can be cleared with low ranking servants if you’re strategic.

  7. Says he spent over 70k on FGO but doesnt mention whether he has all the current servants at the time the video was published. I am curious whether he has them all or not

  8. when people spending 1k+ for gacha in FGO, im here being a F2P and having fun with STELLA obliterating my enemies, and keep spamming Marchen Maines Lebens .

  9. Hey Masters! how bout we turn this comment section to a Friend ID compendium just for fun

  10. This is Depressing ngl I was really into games a lot but now I decreased it for my own betterment because I don't to play games all my life it will ruin my studies and I want to have a stable job

  11. The reason why mobile games that are more insteresting are mostly GACHA because people like him keeps encouraging gacha makers. If people like him don't exist. Companies wouldn't have been encouraged and gacha wouldn't have existed anymore.

  12. this is why Japan is falling, with these garbage young people or scum teens around in this generation, Japan will never rise again

  13. Wow. Completely addicted to what is basically digital crack. He would probably kill himself if the developers decided to remove the game one day, which they totally could. So he is basically a slave and the developers are the drug dealers. Oh well, guess it's okay since capitalism is the religion we worship right, right?

  14. How you can be an ultra FGO whale spending $70,000 and also have a huge figure and Gundam collection is beyond me
