About Me

I'm just someone who relies on the Battle Cats Wiki too much. I made an account to fix typos, bring outdated information up to speed, and (rarely) combat vandalism. I mostly just edit my own profile, though.

Besides the wiki, I used the Battle Cats Subreddit’s BCEN Uber Rare Tier List as a general guide for making informed Gacha choices. However, since the Tier List has gone dormant and doesn’t have an adequate successor, I have now turned to SilumanTomcat for his comprehensive Uber reviews. He also reviews non-Ubers/Legends and makes useful guides on levels, which is a huge plus.

I first learned about the Battle Cats from the Metal Slug Defense collaboration, but I only started playing it sometime after dropping MSD, after seeing my brother playing it and being drawn in by its charming style and sense of humor. My first Uber ever was the White Rabbit. My first good Uber (and second Uber ever) was Radiant Aphrodite. I also played Crash Fever during and after the collaboration with Battle Cats, but I ultimately went inactive after Omega difficultly and Raids were implemented because being unable to finish stages without specific units is really cheap. (That said, I’ll still brag about getting Megaphrodite, Kyo Kusanagi, Mai Shiranui, Laplace, and Galois...)

I play other games, too. RPGs are my go-to for having a good time, and my favorites to date are Fallout: New Vegas, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, and Chrono Trigger. I also love Resident Evil 4, Metal Gear Solid 3, and classic platformers like Crash Bandicoot 1 & 2, and Spyro the Dragon 1, 2, & 3. When I’m in the mood for weeb sh*t, I‘ll play Yakuza or Hyperdimension Neptunia.

I try to keep an open mind about games I don’t play, but I’ll always look down on mobile games (with very few exceptions), yearly release franchises, multiplayer-only, PvP, MLG, excessive difficulty, and David Cage.

Currently playing: Magia Record, and the Battle Cats

My Battle Cats Officers’ Club Card. (1/20/2020)

I also have a Roblox account called NathanVenture, but I'm currently inactive.

My avatar is a sprite of Claire Elford from Witch’s Heart, a quality RPG Maker game series.

For those who are interested, below is a list of things I'm currently working on in the Battle Cats. Normally one would write down a list of things that they have already done, but I've reached a point where the amount of stuff I've done way outnumbers the stuff I've yet to do. I am 99% confident that anything not listed here is because I've already done it.
