Anet please stop this! It's not the first time you give us the answer to a big question that you managed to put up with a cheap trailer.
THe biggest question in this saga was "who is jormag hinting about?" and you answer it in the trailer showing us that she is telling the commander who the worse evil is....like seriously...why spoil the surprise?

    I'm not saying that it wasn't known, it was a possibility and showing the destroyers it would have been obvious...but did they really need to show us the scene and let us hear jormag saying it? I guess it's a big "reveal" in the story

    If they didn't mention Primordus they couldn't have shown the response missions and since it looks like no new map the whole trailer would've just been new weapons and some video of the factions.
    It's been pretty obvious it'd be Jormag vs Primordus since their each others weaknesses and they've been dropping hints already (The roadmap being red for the chapter was a big giveaway), I do agree though that the story could have had an episode between the last and the next that lead up to this.

    It's a good assumption ice and fire, but it also could have been Bubbles (DSD) since that's the side we know the least about.

    Agree, doing a reveal in a trailer, currently unless its a double blind, seems like a bad spot to do a reveal like that.

    Envy the Madman his musing when Death comes to make fools of us all.

    My guess is that ANet is really trying to gin up interest.

    I am a very casual player.
    Very.
    Casual.

    I mean even if no mention at all of Primordus the destroyers popping up everywhere was not something they could avoid leading us to go oh kitten Primordus

    WvW band wagoners ruin the game mode just like Karen's ruin these forums.

    Since the entire episode revolves around Destroyer invasions, I'm not sure how the trailer could have drummed up interest otherwise. There doesn't appear to be anything else.

    Well, at least one person didn't consider Primordus it would seem

  • Primordus is a good boy! Jormag is an ice cold liar. You judge too much with your eyes alone.

    Yeah, cos reskins of weapons and reused maps are interesting...

    "IT'S PRIMORDUS VS JORMAG!" If Taimi was right with her simulation, Tyria will blow up and the game will be over :/
    I'm sad.
    EDIT: Ah wait, Aurene wasn't "Aurene" yet, so time for another simulation.
    About the spoilers, it was probably difficult to show something without the fire and the destroyers, but avoiding Bangar (and especially that last sentence) would have hidden the fact that Jormag will fight on our side.

  • @Elric.4713 said:
    Everyone with half a brain knew it was Primordus.

    Jormag is just manipulating us to take care of all the heavy work with Primordus while it digs its icy talons in around Tyria. That has to be the lil twist...like when Joko told us we inadvertently were actually the bad guys (from thoughtlessly killing elder dragons).

    I don't see how this is spoilers. Taimi, and the story itself, have been telling us this was coming for a couple years now.

    Would be hard to make a trailer and put in destroyers and not think about primodus.....

    Spoilers if you weren't paying attention. I've known this was coming for years and I haven't played any of the new living world story.

    This mindset confuses me. What keeps you here? The "amazing gameplay"? Play an actual single player game if that is what you are looking for.

  • These are not spolers. It is just telling what the next episode is about. A spoiler would be that the commander was killed.....ow wait, that always happens when I'm the commander.

    Some like to complain. My fav tho are the one's in the other thread who haven't been playing that like to remind us that they haven't been playing and after seeing the trailer will skip this episode and continue not playing

    It was hardly a secret.

    It was either going to be Primordus or Sea Dragon, that much everyone knew.

  • Fallesafe.5932Fallesafe.5932 Member ✭✭✭

    Imagine caring about the awful story.

  • Aaralyna.3104Aaralyna.3104 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I did find it a bit of a spoiler too.

    Now I have a feeling End of Dragons expac is about Jormag vs Primordus. Even tho the logo represents some tidal wave, it shows two dragons. That may be Jormag, the ice one and Primordus the Fire one (like Yin and Yang). Combine fire and ice and you get water. They can't kill 2 dragons that fast and we already brought them asleep.

    Progression.

  • Well it's not really a spoild. In the living season 3 (chapter 6) we are talking about jormag and Primordius already who are agitated. And since destroyer can be found all around the map....

  • I feel the trailer could have used more finesse regardless of what I already suspected based on previous chapters.

  • In an absolute sense, unless the trailer says, "Hey, come play our new stuff when we release it! You'll go to new places and meet new people and kill new enemies!", you'll have spoilers.

    the real mystery is how this will lead us to cantha...

    i hope the plot dont take path of just primordus move to cantha(for expansion), it will be too cheap/lazy, basically a balthazar 2.0.

    main pvp: Khel the Undead(power reaper).

    almost impossible with the expansion logo. We can see very well the theme of water with a dragon that does not look like primordius
    moreover as you say it, it would be too too repetitive to have 2 enemies with the same element: pof balthazar god of fire then EoD dragon of fire ...
    In my opinion, either primordius will be killed at the same time as Jormag at the end of this saga or it will be kept for a next living story after the expansion.

    Or they merge and become the uber dragon of mists.
