  • BfA Q&A Tidbits - No Alliance High Elves, Strand of the Ancients to be Removed & More - World of War

    Aren't void elves just blood elves with different colored skin and some of the hairstyles having glowy effects? Aren't Highmountain Taurens just Taurens with moose antlers? Aren't Nightborne just Night elves that can't flip? Aren't the new draenei just light colored draenei with tatoos? Dat logic SE....dat logic....dont even get me started on Magah(sp) orcs (even though I'm making one for sure). I mean all the "stuff" you get could've basically been added into the character customization. Just sounds like a lazy excuse to me ontop of an already lazy concept.



    No they are not. Each one of them have a lore behind them that makes them different from their original versions. But it is not the case with Blood-High Elves. Blood Elves literally the High Elves we know from the lore. The only difference is their eye color and that comes from the sunwell. Which is why we will able to create blood elves with yellow eye color in BfA. Because Sunwell is no longer corrupted with fell energy.

    Highmountain Taurens have their own tribe, zone and lore behind them. And there are enough of them in the Warcraft universe that make them vaible as an allied race.

    Nightbornes are not Night Elves. They are releated like every single elf race in the game but after more than 10.000 years they are very different from each other. Their culture, believes and power sources are complately different.

    Lightforged Draneis are Light's soldiers and they are fighting with the legion for more than a thousand years. They didn't even set foot on Azeroth till now and they are just introduced with some of the most common things about Draneis. And again there are enough of them in the game that makes them viable as an allie race. On top of that normal draneis can become Lightforged after they earned the right and complated their trial.

    You are only right about Void Elves. They are the most forced and weird race lore wise in the game. And they are very small in numbers unlike other races. They look amazing I won't deny that but it is ıgh I can't explain.

    High Elves are vey small in numbers and like I said they are literally Blood Elves. There are not even 2000 high elves in the game according to the lore. There is nothing between them that makes them different from each other. After the third war %90 of the high elves literally died and %90 of the survivors changed their names to blood elves in remembrance of their fallen brethren and no longer consider themselves high elven. That's all you can find about the difference between those 2 races.

    Yes there are a lot of people who want High Elves as an allied race but they don't care about the lore even a bit. They just wanna play blood elves without leaving the Alliance and Void Elves are not what they want and I get that. But at the same time there are a lot of players like me who are against this idea because of the lore reasons. Blizzard knows this very well and that's why they introduced Void Elves. Even though they are weird lore wise, at least they are a new race. So Blizzard can work on them however they want without destroying the lore they created years ago.
    That's not his point... You can make up "lore" and create anything. His point is that it is somewhat lazy and hollow.

  • EA Says 'Year-on Year Growth was Driven by MEA' - Mass Effect: Andromeda - MMORPG.com

    Where is DA 4 though? I'm not hyped for Anthem :\ Now that Anthem is the focus it will take at least a year for DA news.
    Agreed about DA. DA2 is complete garbage but Inquisition took a "turn for the right direction", at least for me. 

    I would like to see what they can do with the series after DA:I. Even if I like Origins better.

    Sigh, yet another thread derailed and taken off course over this same issue.

    What do you suppose we're up to, perhaps at least 25+ threads and several hundred posts by Ren and those responding?

    Easily.


    Yup, I reported him and finally put him on ignore. Shit has gone beyond the point of ridiculousness.
    He created other accounts to support himself, tho. Like "next season in Walking Dead".

    You didn't just compare creating a, imo good looking but mediocre, video game with things like the discovery of electricity, creating the internet or the computer chip right?
    Ok, when did SC became "mediocre"? You lost me there, mate.
    Well I did say it was my opinion but can you explain to me what makes it above mediocre? Rules are you can't use graphics as a reason and you can't use features that don't exist yet.
    Atmosphere, gas and liquid systems for a sandbox space sim where you can work as a ship thief by going in space and board it manually by force and killing its owner and taking it?

    Or you can salvage, mine, build a small outpost in some moon and mine rocks for ages.

    Or working as a rescuer getting people drift in space or left in a planet to die after losing its ship?

    C'mon man, you are trying like super hard to bash this. It became nonsensical. The space fight is good, the FPS is ok. I can see they missing the spot on everything else and the game becoming just "good"... But mediocre? Ah, come on.
