    I can't wait for Champions to end so I can hopefully see a lengthy EoD cinematic in the end

    Icebrood saga started out impressively. But after Drizzlewood coast, the content took a nosedive when changing to the DRM format. I just want it to be over with to get faster to EoD.

    I find it repetative, subpar content. Specially the Champions part.

    I hope this is, due to the good developers working on EoD.
    DRMs are tediously long, repetative (always the same) with OP end bosses.
    Storyline went all over the place after drizzlewood
    Masteries are only usable in DRMs which I do not intent to replay to begin with (WAY longer than Strikes with scraps as rewards compared to said strikes)

    Bring the last one out, I'll grind through it, just to end the suffering.

    I really doubt we'll get another DRM style episode release for the finale. It may be small but I think we may get an actual map. I'm not saying it will be a full-fledged Dragonfall style map with a meta, but I think we'll get at least a small open world map. Whatever happens in the finale makes an impact on the whole of Tyria and I'm assuming that means a conclusion to Jormag or Primordus, or both. Which I don't think the studio would want to try to do within the context of a dragon response mission. Even with the in between content before the expansion launches they still have a lot of story to tell to conclude this mess of a saga. lol

    Not only do we have Primordus and Jormag, but we also have KaBraham and Ryland. Unless they're going with the whole.. spirits being the permanent resolution to Primordus threat option in which we'll really only have Jormag and Ryland to deal with. I'd imagine it will be a big battle though. Would be pretty silly to spend this long amassing an army of different factions only to not have them play a part in a final showdown. Unless the showdown is just going to be an artsy cinematic showing representatives of the different factions with the commander and Dragon's Watch.

    The only part I was actually excited for was part 3 with the Braham mission, but that fell apart fast and now I just want it to end so we can get EoD.

    It being glossed over or relegated to a Mass Effect 3 style cinematic sweep is the most likely scenario

    All that's for sure is we're supposed to deal with 2 dragons simultaneously in the very near future and it will be a hot mess no matter what happens

    Zhaitan was the only one we didn't beat with some deus ex mulligan and that's still generally considered to be the least engaging one

    I think the point is that we're somehow pitting the two dragons against each other. I guess that doesn't really count as a deus ex whatever - but it doesn't seem like it's going to be OUR forces that do the most damage to either.

    I think Grothmar Valley is one of the best maps in the game, lovely to look at, fun events and a great place to level up for the masteries.
    However I'm only excited about having some more news on EoD, hoping we are still on track for a 2021 release.
    Brain dead farming till then.
    zzzzz

    They've proven that without a new map to explore and collections that have nothing to do with map metas and encourage solo play, that content releases are worth quitting the game over.

    Looking forward to EoD and going back to actual LW seasons over this "expansion level content" lie.

    I am not... Nothing about the saga excites me

    the only exciting thing is that it will finally be over and hopefully content get release again

    I've already moved on to other games. I log in 2-3 days for a few hours to join the guildies in WvW, but other than that I'm getting more enjoyment nuking Ghandi in Civ VI right now.

    Stolen from a funny on Reddit, but it just about sums up my feelings towards DRMs and how I envision EoD ;)

    Oh dear god, I hope not... they should rather add strike missions, raids, dungeons, anything else really :D

    DRM updates are a totally fine bit of content if they are between 3 month Living World updates. A way to introduce elements outside the main story. As a main feature, I rather get into a different game.
