Thread: What do you want in future DLC story?

    Default Re: What do you want in future DLC story?

    I'd like to see a faction composed of two races that are in the midst of their own merger; a race of essence and another of form have achieved peace and are slowly and methodically merging with one another over the course of centuries. Each race on their own, like the terrans, are nothing compared to the Zerg and Protoss; but together are more than the sum of their parts. And of course you'd have those sub-factions utterly opposed to the merger, and other extremist sects.

    And they don't have to be "Pure", either. Perhaps each is flawed in its own way, but possess that Terran-like determination and grit that has seen humanity survive so long. And of course you'd have those Protoss and Zerg who are all like, "Well, y'know, this whole ascension thing doesn't look too bad..." and the resulting political fallout.

    Aaand sold.


    Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
    The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    The road's goal is the Origin of Being
    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    Well, given that Sc2 redefines purity of form as being something with incredible psionic powers, then yeah, the Protoss have it. Then again, relying on and accepting any new information from Sc2 is pointless since it set a precedent for us to expect asspull retcons from now on.

    This race you mentioned would be an interesting idea for the "antagonist" role since they wouldn't necessarily be overtly malicious, or evil, in any way (to differentiate it from all the previous big bads of Sc). They'd be antagonist in name only because they're up against the main three races we know so well. Plenty opportunities for grayness to come back there since, like you said, you could have those subfactions within the three races being for and against this new race.

    That said, a DLC focussing on a past cycle altogether (a prequel essentially) and different races embodying the purities would open doors for creativity and be an interesting way to inform how this new faction came about in the present timeline.
    Yes, that's right! That is indeed ME on the right.

    ^ Totally. Any story will have to have terrans in the narrative. If Blizz wants to change roles up a little bit, a UED faction could take the place of the Quality race, while the hypothetical Ascending race assumes the middle-of-the-road position.

    This was the one thing I hated about LotV with the whole purity of form retcon. It would have been so much easier to have an energy transfer the other way to Ouros, which would then better explain why Zeratul told Kerrigan about Zerus in HotS

    But then SC2 would have a plot that isn't "The Kerrigan & Raynor Show". :P

    Actually yes it would, Gradius. Kerrigan knew at the end of the 1st epilogue mission a major sacrifice was needed, and by doing it this way, it would have worked.

    On the other hand, if they actually did the redemption path consistently in HotS....

    Creation and early history of the Protoss.
    Creation and evolutionary development of the Zerg.
    Crashing of the Super-carriers and early expansion of Terrans.

    Maybe through the eyes of Archaeologists.

    Scientists measure a second as the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods
    of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine
    levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom.
    Or the duration of 9,192,631,770 matches where David Kim crushes you head to head in StarCraft 2

    Blizzard would say they already did this via the DT Saga trilogy.

    Something a bit ddifferent switch around the races. Imagine a Zerg brood arrives in a sector where they are the quality faction, or protoss get to the next galaxy to take a middle or lower position.

    maybe a backup plan Narud / amon that has no need of them, a farewell in style, beating them from the grave
    Amon and Naruto being a threat, without being brought back, not resurrected. only flash back with a plan to run at us own pace
