you never know - it might catch on and I wouldn't be surprised to see an entire guild of fish-mask wearers.
ya I hate these masks as well.
I like lovecraft. An hommage to a Dagon worshipping cult fits in game, but just be an odd looking npc people - not a stupid fish on a neck. Then add some kuo toa inspired monsters and bosses. That would be a great Innsmouth-inspired coastal /cavern scene.
If I wanted to wear a fish, tomato, or robot llama on my head, there is already an irreverant little title some of you may have heard of called fortnite, which I didn’t think that sota was trying to compete with?
Why do you think the devs implemented Gustball and the Obsidian trials, hmm?
I am not feelin the fish heads. Pls do not allow them to become a helmet pattern. Pls force anyone wearing one to auto flag pvp, that would only be fair.
Only reason we are getting them at all is because people wanted the dungeon fishing spot of that telethon (which was not even reached at the time). All the rest of the stuff in that telethon was totally undesirable stuff for the vast majority of players. Fish pavers anyone? Yeah right, as if we did not have enough pavers already (which are hardly usable indoors anyways due to the way most houses are designed). Fish masks? Please please not! There's enough eyesores in the game already that people who want to be funny or annoying or that simply have no sense for aesthetics can choose from. A trophy fish stone statue? Caters only to the few people who have room for yet another large statue and are into fish. Not sure if anyone would have used the swordfish sword if the goal had been reached... not I, for sure.
Shimizu's post really sums it up nicely. Why spend (waste?) time on creating stuff that most players do not want, instead of finally giving us things we've been begging for for ages? Like deco, wearables, and hairstyles already available in the game (but not to avatars), or finally dyeable hairbands instead of the ugly red? When can I finally get the three braids hairstyle I see on some female Norgard NPCs? Or curtains for my house?
Yes! The Aquatic Brotherhood.
Wait for the fish gloves, fish leggings and fish chest armor so you can truly embrace your inner fish.
These things neatly sum up the weird priorities the Devs continually have and the decisions they therefore come to.
As long as it's a wide brimmed hat, a pair of waders, thick gloves, and a flannel shirt, I'm ok with fish armor.
On a more positive note, I generally think the art team on SotA does great work. They definitely have talented people working on this game. These masks just don't fit the theme/feel of a fantasy world I want to be in.
As long as I'm aware that my fishhead wont be visible to all when I create/pay for it I'm good with it. Retroactively allowing players to turn off my fishhead is wrong. I paid for that fishhead with an understanding that others would see my fishhead when around me. Any retro change to that fishhead just seems......well...... FISHY!! and I'd expect a full refund.
Whats next? Can we all list the things we dont like and have flags to turn them off? This needs to get sorted BEFORE the flood of crazyness and not after. People deserve to know what they are buying.
and btw I'm friends with Mystarr and I"m sure he knows this is a bit tongue in cheek
Ah yes, I've seen that one. Thanks!
With masks giving eternal patterns, your going to start seeing a lot more use if them.
Yup I stopped buying into telethons half a year back, they just encourage the devs to use money improperly. Their efforts are totally miss allocated.
Load of BS
More stuff for the trash bag deep in the bottom of the basement. Is it April 1st already? It seems like it should be with these screenshots.
It was probably a cheap item on the Unity shop for the devs to use. I mean look at it.
It allows them to offer a reward on a telethon with minimal work.
