sure ly its not that uneven
I'm not sure if you're understanding my argument ...
If erasing the records of previous grail wars was important enough for Solomon to bother doing in the first place, he would have made sure that such information would be obtainable after we stopped Goetia from destroying humanity so that we could use it to put a stop to any potential danger that would arise from such information.I'm not suggesting that Roman is a "great" actor.
What you're supposed to get from the Accel Zero Order passage is that LAPLACE provided a record of Fuyuki 2004 as the "1st Grail War," and that details of the record were later revealed to be falsified or incorrect. Ergo, in absolute canonicity, there is no way to verify that Fuyuki 2004 was indeed the 1st Grail War of the FGO timeline, regardless of possible explanations. The Holmes scene doesn't verify it, and may indicate that Atlas' records were tampered with too. The Final Singularity just gives evidence that Roman lied to you.
There needs to be a plausible reason as to why erasing previous wars would be important to do. Even in SN's timeline, the Fuyuki ritual isn't considered an extremely important thing for the MA to be all that concerned about despite its potential power.Everything else I stated was essentially playing Devil's Advocate to people going, "well, in that case, then explain this in context of the more-than-one War theory."
tl;dr I have not yet seen convincing evidence that there was only one Grail War at Fuyuki in the original timeline of FGO.
And nobody expected Avenger, or they would have definitely shut it down.
“Yet the burden shall be shared by two entwined, from which the sword will part from the body and be bestowed upon the vassal to sacrifice themselves and cleave through space and time.”
“Mark upon this unworthy flesh the emblem of the sacrifice, the vassal whose death shall bring forth victory through the fields of steel and blood!”
“The oath is laid here. We are the ones who represent all the good within the pure lands, and we are the ones who judge what is evil within the pure lands. Thou, Seven Heavens clad in three mere words of unequal power, shall emerge from the spiral of control, O keeper of the balance—!”
Except that the Einzbern's Lesser Grail clearly would have known about it, but they weren't interested in shutting down the wars because they were only interested in winning at that point.And nobody expected Avenger, or they would have definitely shut it down.
Edit: For the fifth war at least, though then that leads into the problem of "how did Solomon/Marisbilly use the grail without humanity dying"?
Edit 2: I can see how Solomon being the king of magecraft would conjure up some method to get around Angra, but he'd have to wiped the previous wars' info with the wish since he lost his powers after said wish, but if he knew there was a problem then why would he wish to be human?
Edit 3: I mean, if you're going to erase previous war information from the records, then why bother leave any information about any grail war?
