Someone step forward, adimt to your fetish with the pointy shoulders....
Admit that you have dreams of christmas tree type shapes shooting out of your shoulders as you scream "ZOJAK QUAZAEL!!!!!..... I MAKE THE POINTY POINT!!!! YOU FACE!!!
Serial, theres that one armour type with the super pointy shoulders, CHIRAN, it looks like a samurai wrap, but then gets killed in the face by the massive christmas tree shapes shooting out from under the shoulder blades...
The new armor, looks really really cool. With one exception. The pointy shoulders. Well, actually, the new Concept art looks really really cool. The new in game rendered armor looks cool with one exception.... The Pointy Point Point Face Christmas Tree Shapes Darting out into the Heavens.
Its like taking the Mona Lisa and then slapping a "Bush/Chenney 04'" bumper sticker on it.... Or even worse, imagine an awesome Samurai with his super sweet Samurai armor on, and then you make him wear pointy shoulders.... You slap some Birthday day party Hats around his shoulders. He would cry, and Samurai's arent made to cry very easily.
Seriously, the new armor looks really good, but those pointy shoulders just ruin the whole look.
The other armor as well., Chiran. I really like the idea, the look, but i cant stand to have it on any of my characters because of those pointy arse shoulders. Show of hands... How many people have you seen wearing Chiran BP?
The only time ive seen the armor in game was when i found a Chiran BP, tried it on, and then had to log out and reflect on my emotional situation.
If the Chiran armor didnt have those pointy shoulders, i think you would probably see more than .0 persons wearing it across all ac servers....
Will it be the same for the new armor?
Its not as bad, not as prominent. But its still there. Whats amazing is... The concept art DOESNT have the stupid pointy shoulders. Yes, there are shoulders there, but the Artist, being an Artist and having aesthetic respect for goodness and righteousness, deliberately draws them so they arent space rockets pointing into the heavens.
I can see the guy in Charge at Turbine standing over the artist as he draws the concept art....
Turbine Guy In Charge "Ok.... now make them a little pointier..."
Artist "uhhh, well, ok like this..."
Turbine Guy In Charge" no.... pointy, turned towards the heavens, like a christmas tree shooting out of his shoulder.... but pointier... and upward"
***Artists pencil starts to shake nervously in his hand***
Turbine Guy In Charge" Pointier...."
Turbine Guy In Charge" Pointier.........."
Turbine Guy In Charge" MAKE EM POINTY DAMNIT, POINTY!!!!"
Artist" I cant do it...:"
*throws his pencil across the room*
*Turbine Guy In Charge sits down and starts rendering direct to game...."
