    It might be scheduled for 1.5 years but releasing an episode a month later here and waiting for a festival to end there will drag it out to be closer to 2 years. I don't mind as long as it's good in the end, the previous expansions were good so I'm looking forward to it. I think it will depend on how much retention, relying solely on LS and festivals, can be generated. It wouldn't suprise me if we got another PR-vid at the end of LS4 announcing the next Xpac three months later.

    If you want X, and Y is needed to get get X, you also have to want Y if you really want X. If you don't want Y, you don't want X. It's easy.

  • Probably should have added the 2+ years choice.

    yeah, i think 2+ is more realistic, anything less than 1 year is unrealistic

    especially with the fact that they need to figure out how to get new features to run on such an old engine.

    First two options are pretty much impossible, with the third option unlikely since there's going to be two seasons now and we're only half done with season 4.

    That is given ANET continues with the 3-4 months between LW releases, which I don't see them changing anytime soon.

    it's entirely possible that the only reason there was only 1 season between hot and pof is because of the content draught right after hot

    But I think Season 4 will have 5 episodes (Eve Eschenbacher accidentaly confirmed that), Season 5 will have 3 episodes.

    Ep 4- September
    Ep 5- December

    Ep 1- February
    Ep 2- May
    Ep 3- August

    Expansion 3- October/November 2019.

    Thats my speculation, I think the Seasons work yearly now.

    This game is going to literally die if people have to wait 2 years for an expansion when everything has been done so slowly.

  • 1 year

    No less than a year.

  • Danikat.8537Danikat.8537 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Honestly I don't care. An expansion is just a storyline (with associated maps, rewards, achievements etc.) and a bunch of new features all bundled together which I have to pay for instead of getting as a free update.

    I was happy to pay for both PoF and HoT (more so PoF because it didn't have the whole confusion over whether we're buying the base game again) and depending on what's in it I'll probably buy expansion 3 as well. But boxing up a bunch of updates and charging for them doesn't make them any better or more exciting IMO so if we can get the same stuff via free updates I certainly won't complain.

    It remains to be seen if that's the case or not, but if they can bring out 'expansion features' like new elite specs, new mechanics like mounts or gliding, new guild halls, new armour sets (already happening) etc. as part of or alongside the Living Story instead of having to sell them separately then I won't miss expansions at all.

    "You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea,
    And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams,
    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek,
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings."

    1.5 from now is likely. The upside though is expansions are another team so they’ll have been adding content to it for 2.5-3 years

    Thanks... I thought they were going for 9-10 per season. Would have killed the community as a lot of people would get bored of Elona after so long.

    I'd not think so, especially because they said there will be season 5 just now. I mean they wouldnt say there is Season 5 if it wouldn't be very soon.

    I also think Season 5 will be very short to settle down the ground for the story of the expansion.

    I wrote a different post about why there MUST be Season 5. And I said that because of so many unresolved plots in Path of Fire and beyond- especially in Path of Fire.

    We know that Kralkatorrik is supposed to be our major villain, so they will sacrifice this season and I think Season 5- 1-2 first episodes- to finish this story.

    Look how many episodes they sacrificed only for Joko- Kralkatorrik backstory is much more juicy with Glint's Legacy, Aurene, Destiny's Edge on the background.

    I think the rest of this season will be gathering the forces of Tyria to stand against Kralk- meeting with old allies like Caithe, Logan, Zojja, Jennah- discovering unknown secrets to help us fight against Kralk, I'd say we will kill Kralkatorrik- in the end or at the beginning of Season 5, but I think Aurene will in the end turn away from us and become the main villain for Season 5 and expansion 3 first part..

    Her action will wake up one of the dragons- I think Deep Sea Dragon, that will be the main antagonist for the Expansion 3.

    List of unresolved plots from PoF:

    -Joko- resolved+Inquest's plot
    -Gods- unresolved- Lyssa's mystery, Balthazar's backstory
    -the future of Glint's Legacy- Aurene
    -Destiny's Edge plot- Zojja, Caithe
    -Rytlock's secret- unresolved
    -The Sunspears and Order of Shadows- Kito saying that he was together with the commander while killing the Elder Dragons.
    -Kralkatorrik juicy story.

    Rest:
    -Malyck's Tree
    -The Nightmare Court's state
    -Pale Tree's state
    -how is Logan doing as the Marshall?
    -the Shining Blade's oath- Anise & Livia

    I think there is much more of them.

    Season 5 is a good way to mark the line between the story of Elona (Season 4) and the story of another region like Sea of Sorrows or Deldrimor or something else (Season 5).

    Seek, and you shall find.

    I don’t know about you but fighting dragon A then B then C since 2012 got old. Especially with the likes of Mordremoth which are cookie cutter villains.

    I think they should go with less giant things and foes that are more relatable and have real motives. But I guess we will not get that here sadly.

    Fighting the Lich, Shiro or Varesh was memorable and cool.

    they could technicly do both. the most obvious would be a svanir leader as the central antagonist while jormag remains dormant for most of the arc's duration.

    They just told us it'd follow season 5.
    Two or three more episodes of 4.
    Then ~6 episodes of 5.
    So we're looking at an easy year and a half, up to two years.

    5 could also be small 4 episodes in order to shift us into the expansion

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.
    Zhaitan reunites lost ones, primordus creates fertile land, mordremoth spreads the green, and jormag..
    ..jormag? Who's that?

    Hmm...I don't see/hear where she said there will only be 5 Episodes. Just that she mentioned the VO for Episodes 3, 4 and 5. Nor anything about Season 5 having 3 Episodes only.
    It may, or may not, be true; I can't say there is any confirmation, though.

    Well, all she's saying is that they recently finished VO for episode 5. We'll see I guess.
