Current Disappointment and Concerns for the Future
Is anybody else feeling incredibly disappointed and frustrated at the lack of fresh content coming out from Intrepid right now? Maybe it’s a different story for those in alpha zero but from the perspective of someone who isn’t in A0, I have little to no excitement for the game at this moment in time. Personally, I think that the most exciting thing to come out recently was the optimization of the game and how smooth the game looked with so many characters on screen; the progression of the game in new aspects is fun to see. However, most of the content released in 2018 seems like fluff to me; I am tired of environmental videos and videos with pre-planned dungeon runs to the point where I am no longer looking forward to live streams. The only things I am personally hoping for now are a bard themed monthly cosmetic pack and the exact alpha one date.
With alpha one right around the corner, I was hoping to see some combat related content. When will we see the bard and summoner? When will we see examples of the augment system through class, race, etc.? What’s the status of the combo bar? Can we see how different combat skills will interact in terms of counter play? These questions, and the combat system itself, are only the tip of the iceberg. When I think of the vast amount of great and ambitious ideas that have not yet been made into any sort of game play at all, it makes me skeptical that Intrepid will be able to deliver in what, 1.5 years?
What do you guys think?
