I don’t get why there has to be some mystery in the romance side, it’s not like it’s going to actively spoil the story and make ppl not want to buy it? saying two names isn’t like showing us major story parts.

If…

i think it was said they don’t want too much focus on romances and they recently pushed back the game and its friggen crunch time. The end of game development is so nuts i bet everyone there is like living in the studio at this point. Like crazed designers and bug catchers.

Lets not forget a bit ago coles pants were an independant player. The are kind busy atm.

Let me re-iterate:

My rant is not towards the Development Team. Their job is never done until the 11th hour before it goes Gold, so I won’t begrudge what they have to do to get the game done as bug-free as possible. 

It is towards the Marketing Team irt the perplexing way they’ve handled info release for this game so far.

If there was worry about some LIs being more plot-spoilery than others, I’d figured the theoretical staggered info release-style of the monthly Follower Fridays would serve them better in keeping interest up till October/November. But the lack of structure and perceived varied importance I’m seeing in the way story, gameplay & LI-related info is released just makes me wonder if there’s solid planning covering the year or are they totally playing it by ear.

Seriously, I definitely get the feeling that they are not gamers or fan type people. They market this shit like they are

I’m annoyed because this *will* increase inter-faction (passive) aggression in the more passionate side of the fanbase, niche as they may be, who have a lot of vested interest in the characters and story. I’ve already felt the brunt of it last week, am not looking forward to see the effect of this built-up pressure in the run up till November especially when it is purposely encouraged for the sake of hype.

Showing more trees is more important. The last romance will be a tree.

Unless the romanceable tree looks like a hot Sylvari, no kthxbye

"He also mentioned that he didn’t understand why they hadn’t announced the last two romances, but the marketing team insisted there had to be some mystery.

  • "Developer Diaries" that never appeared
  • Planned Monthly Follower Friday that began and ended within one week
  • Bombardment of info dump in escalating succession then silence, with reveals varying between plot-critical and random info.
  • And practically revealing all LIs except the last two *knowing* very well how this would go down with an already romance-based factionized fanbase.

…I’m really perplexed trying to make sense of your strategy, DA:I Marketing Team.
