Hey folks, just wanted to adress a concerning problem for me and many others (from what i've seen both on these forums, on reddit, on youtube, etc.) on this games and it's DLCs. Recently we saw a little bit of a change on how CA takes feedback into account. They started tweaking stuff previous to the releases and on previous feedback on the consecuent patches more and making it public on forums or reddit. This has been very good recieved, and i appreciate that they take this little details into account.
But, and of course it has to be a but, there is still a big concern on badly done characters, factions, mechanics, design, animations, models, etc, that are all from previous DLCs. What do i mean by this?
As we all know and clearly see, even the folks at CA, from all the Lord Packs of WH2, there has always been a winner except for Allariele and Helleborn: Ikkit Claw, Markus Wulfhart, Snickh, Grom the Paunch, and now Throt the Unclean. And we can see too that some of the old DLCs for WH1 that were lord packs, also suffered from it not being touched up (Belegar and Volkmar, mostly). What this means is that the counterpart for them has been given an after-thought kind of treatment in regards to both campaign mechanics, and overall campaign experience.
So how for long are going to have them in this state? In their reworks, the old world races got an update on almost all their characters and factions too. When you revisit something, you make it good, and they did a good job until now, but what's gonna happen with the DLCs for this game? Are we going to have to pay for another DLC to make a side of the Lord Pack worth it on WH3?
And this aren't obscure characters we're talking about, the most famous i think would be Malus Darkblade, has an entire saga of books for him, and the representation in this game, playing as him, is just bad design, no other way to put it.
I understand someone can't work for free, that's why we get DLCs, so that we can have the Old World Updates. But what happens when there is bad design choices for extra paid content? You just leave it like that because you can't work for free? No, they shouldn't. I know it might sound bad but they should go out of their way and at least once per patch, revisit one of the Legendary Lords of those DLC and make them worth it, make their implementation something good. Why is it that these DLCs (that are often noticed right off the bath that are half-baked) doesn't get touched up?
The size of the new content team might be the factor here, i know, because everything must have been moved at least 2 years ago to the WH3 team, but you can't do the touch and go treatment with content that is supposed to be part of a 10 year long project series that will merge together in one final game.
Please reconsider moving the team from WH3 out once it's released, or at least keep a substantial amount of the team working around with the new content team so that the pace is not as bad as it's been on these past few years for both patches and DLCs releases.
