I’m really disheartened we couldn’t get a nice redemptive moment for DE. We had Caithe and Rytlock involved in the final sequence, Logan was... on the island.
But we still missed out on Snaff, Eir, and Zojja. It feels like such a narrative waste to me that they didn’t take this final battle to give their story some real closure.
Granted, I haven’t really played on the map beyond the story requirements, so I might have missed a lot of important incidental dialogue. Snaff and Eir are even part of Glint’s army, of which had a presence on the map, yet they were not part of the this huge story moment that ties directly back them. It just feels awkward... Did they forget about them?
Obviously Zojja is a different issue entirely, so no point going into that again. Still sucks.
Hard to reconcile my desires as a fan and a storyteller with my sympathies for how hard it must be at ANet after the lay-offs.
Just wanted somewhere to discuss this. From a lore standpoint it’s probably insignificant in the history of the world, but now DE will just be remembered as a failure. Realistic maybe, but sad as a player.
