Regarding the "new swarm tech"

CA_SimoneCA_Simone Registered Users Posts: 250
Hey all, I wanted to clarify something regarding a comment I've made these past few days on a supposed "new swarm tech".

There was a misunderstanding on my side regarding the animations for the new Nurglings units.

The reality is that our super talented team of animators did an outstanding job at bringing these units and others to life and they've put a lot of hard work in making sure they feel like a swarm.

So no, there isn't a "new swarm tech" but rest assured that our team of animators have all the tools they need to make the best animations to fit the vision of the game.

    Surely coming up with ways to reduce the skeleton complexity while ensuring visual flair/fidelity is 'tech'?

    I guess this message is just to kill any hopes of future swarm units :D

    Probably the same way we get a new Juggernaut Chariot concept art to represent a recolour of the gore beast chariot.

    And this is the forums fault ... how?



    Mistakes happen of course... but don't blame the fans for believing what they were told.

    Lol you guys look for anything to build a conspiracy. The "swarm tech" was just the simplified skeletons but you still try to believe in anything else xD

    Simone: We have new 'Swarm tech' that allowed us to make a swarm unit for game 3.
    Axios: oh maybe we might get other swarm units.
    Simone: We don't have new Swarm tech.

    Seriously. In your mind; I'm the one who made an error in this equation?

    Obviously errors happen - I don't care. I wasn't heavily invested in Swarm units... just how your mind bends this to make me the bad guy is startling and scary.

    You know maybe you should start taking everything CA says with a grain of salt. Especially if it's inside two quotes.

    Maybe go out and take some air as well.

    There we are. Brilliant.

    We will give that a day to settle in - then change it again.

    I have never seen a better defence in my life.

    Come on "swarm tech" was in qoutes clearly for a reason. Its probably was a way devs used to describe it internally to community team.

    ''our super talented team of animators'' that cant even make reload animations for gunpowder units but modders can?

    Who cares? He merely said that Nurglings use a more simplified skeleton, does that mean they are going to take the time to animate rather boring snake/rat models? Probably not because they are nowhere near as iconic or as funny as Nurglings.

    He clarified his point, issue closed.

    Thanks @CA_Simone , quick, clear and efficient communication to avoid a misunderstanding. That's what I call great community management.
  • Dragonsteel82Dragonsteel82 Registered Users Posts: 222
    I don't see the problem here.

    Units look cool and good, that is all I care about.

    If they have new tech, great. If their animators did a superb job, great. Does it really matter which one it is?

    Either way, I'm happy with what was shown.

    Simone has been the Harbinger of a new age of CA dialogue and a flood of news. Those of us that remember the droughts. You sir (Simone) are allowed mistakes. I commend your honesty.

    So, no new tech, just outstanding animations + simplified skeletons.

    Lol he talk directly about swam tech!

    With simplified animation to be possible.

    I really can't even remotely see how that the fanbase fault!

    I not angry at Simone for it because he at least maked it clear even with a post still it was extremely maybe let's hard word but go with "misleading"


  • MalruirMalruir Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 648
    That's sad to hear. I hope you still find a way to make at least some swarm units like Snotlings or Spirit Hosts possible, after all you have shown here that you have the tools to do so.

    Hi Simone. Well, we're very disappointed about Greasus. What about cooperating with fan modders to make him great, with a real gnobblar carried throne instead of his cheap wooden chariot ? 100% sure we can make something awesome if we all work together.
