First off, Congratulations to HiRez for adding in a new Patheon! I understand that adding a pantheon isn't as simple as just adding it to the list. There's a lot to be considered, like the amount of Gods that they can add in that is fitting for the game. We don't want to have that one pantheon that only has one or two Gods. The Mayans had that for a while, and it bummed out the Mayan fans.
Good thing there's more Mayan Gods nowadays! All interesting ones! So a huge congrats to HiRez for doing such an awesome job!
Here are my concerns:
Anime is a big thing. Let's not pretend. It is. Anime is one of the largest reasons why people are into Japanese cultures. Anime is also one of the reasosn why people want to learn Japanese.
HiRez people have a fair share of people that likes Anime. Let's not pretend that we don't know that, either.
I'm okay with the hype they are setting up for the new Patheon. I'm concerned if the hype and the unfairness leaning favors towards the Japanese Patheon will never stop.
Before the Japanese Pantheon, we had Japanese inspired skins. Nemesis, Odin, Bastet. Can we have other Pantheon inspired skins? Chinese KungFu HunBats is a good example. Can we have more of that? Has anyone seen the Mayan NuWa
(Old model version) that BehindtheVeil
drew a long time ago? Can we have some more of that, too? How about a Hindu Ah Puch? That would be cool!
That's the best way, in my opinion, to keep the game's "style" balanced.
But these are just my thoughts and opinions. It's fine if you don't agree, and it's perfectly okay for you to be totally hyped about the Japanese Pantheon, or to be a fan of Anime. I'm not attacking those things in this journal. I'm just simply concerned about how it might turn out, and what kind of audience/players this will bring into the community. Again, You don't have to agree or disagree with me, it's just my opinion. Thank you for your time.
