Just a Little Disappointed

Posted by The Peanut Master on July 25, 2008

Warlic has promised that this new war on Khaeldron “is going to [have] a lot of plot in this war” and that he is “VERY excited about this one… VERY Excited” (MechQuest Design Notes July 23, 3008). So judging by these comments, you might expect plot revelations to be revealed throught the course of the war. At what intervals would make the most sense? Well, one would probably say 25%, 50%, and 75% are the most important, and this was exactly why I was expecting some kind of plot revealings at the 25% mark.

Alas, all we got at that point was some new text from Arin-Ha that the bugs just keep on coming, and that there seems to be no end in sight. Well, duh. While I am happy to see something change, I was hoping for maybe a new cutscene, or at least some new text other than what ended up being added. Maybe my hopes were too high; maybe not, but it would have been nice to see that, and I’m going to have to wait until 50% until I hope to see something plot-related come up.

Battle on!

    Wow, I didn’t even realize anything had changed. It may happen in less obvious points. I know that the Frostval war in DF had cutscenes unlocked in odd checkpoints.

    The Khaeldron War? There’s only one boring SC quest where nothing much happens, or you fight one enemy. Pretty boring.

    Warlic didn’t say that the plot revelations would come at certain percentages, though.

    The problem with having cutscenes at percentages is that not everyone will be playing at the right time to see each one. I can think of one way to work around that problem – however, Warlic has his own plan for the plot revelations in this war.

    (I probably won’t have time to visit here often, but saw the blog link in The Peanut Master’s sig and wanted to come check it out. =Mae)

    Warlic didn’t say at what times the plot revelations would be revealed which is why I was only mildly disappointed, since he didn’t actually promise anything in that regard. The only reason I was disappointed at all was because he did promise big-time plot revelations to come during the war, and a plot-heavy war such as this could easily have had new text/cut scenes at certain important percentages like in some DragonFable wars. Not really a huge deal, just something to point. 🙂

    Oh, not saying it won’t happen! I can’t say, either way …

    I have every confidence that you’ll be happy with the way he does it, though.

  7. Well, that’s reassuring. Perhaps he’ll keep the cutscenes put permanently after the war disappears, if they’re major storyline progression.
