  • “I want more opportunities to use servants I’ve raised like in tower and Grail Front events.” (30s/M)

  • “I want the Grail Fronts and dog fetch systems as permanent additions to the game.” (40s/F)
  • “I want it to end properly, yet I don’t want it to end.” (40s/M)

  • “I was a student when FGO started, and now I’m working. I hope it’s still going when I retire!” (20s/F)
  • “I still want an NP skip function. It’s because we like the animations that we don’t want to get sick of them. Please understand.” (30s/F)
  • “I want the game to keep going on. I hope we can import our data to FGO2.” (40s/M)
