Recently, like about yesterday, I posted about how I was most excited about the new PvE camps within the Tier 2 and 3 E. Vs C. ORvR zones, in the upcoming 1.3.6 patch. Then Wasdstomp promptly came along and burst my heart, much like popping a spot in front of a mirror, initially satisfying but forever leaving a hole in your flesh … a very callous move. He generously pointed me in the direction of his Plaguerats Love Chicken video and the damage was done. It’s like being sat in front of a video nasty (Some of you may remember what one of those was, if not, this may refresh your memories, oh my misspent youth).
Now I can only hope that this is placeholder art, to test the mechanics, with real art work to comes along before the patch is released, because at the moment it’s an insult to my subscription money.
Why oh why implement something new and do such a shockingly bad job with the visuals? Lets be honest, Mythic haven’t told us what else their artists are doing at the moment, so unless they fess up, then I can only assume they are sitting on their asses choking their chickens. They’re probably (I hope to god) up to their necks in new art content, but would it really be that hard to actually create small encampments, which would allow an eyebrow of appreciation to be raised.
Lets execute these small pieces of new content in a manner that’s appropriate. If the people aren’t available to do the art work, then put it back a patch, along with the LotD to 32 age limit change. It can’t always just be about JFDI. Do it once, do it right.
Normally I get to wait to until patch day, before my bubble is burst, but this has taken less than 24 hours. Potentially a new record. Ho Hum.
