The last thing Ankama needs, is for a random "sexism in gaming" article by Polygon, Kotaku or buzzfeed.

I agree, the thing Ankama needs more is a trial for official topless Amalia art considering the character is below the age of consent. I'm glad more people remember that Ankama did much worse than what's discussed here

This would've been funny if it wasn't for the fact you already told this joke once and called it "Wakfu ova part 3"

Am I the only one who simply wish to see more of the beauty art that Wakfu/Dofus spread around ? You guys make too much drama about this.
there's not much beauty in this franchise considering the ideas its creator seems to favor lately

Wow, because you're moving in different areas in a divine dimension which symbolize/give the impression of a certain era means you're time traveling..yeah okay..
I think Celio's talking about the fact Tot straight up said he wants to add a time travel mechanic to merge both games because, you know, the whole shared transmedia universe thing didn't fuck everyting up badly enough yet 8V Xelorium doesn't have anything to do with it since like Hormonde it's more or less meant to exist in its own timestream of sorts I think.

You didn't even list the good reasons - from what little we've seen Merkator is pretty emotional, not cold and distant, lol. Also the interesting thing were the subtle hints he's behind the Fogger industrial revolution resulting in Wakfu foggers, that's more or less it. Try harder, 2/10.


Ankama can't write good villains becase going by what we know about season 1 now, everything that was good about it was the result of the writers - that is, mostly Tot - being kept under some sort of control thanks to French tv norms; as soon as these disappear, so does any semblance of complexity and the only villains we get are "lol didn't you know technology is bad" or moustache-twirling secret societies straight from some conspiracy nut pamphlet, usually with no motivaiton beyond "well you see i'm a demigod". No villain introduced in the ova, where Tot has free reign, is even half decent, same applies to a lot of side media where it was the case too. Few good cases are either a result of individual writers struggling within Tot's crappy vision (I'd like to remind everyone of the 2013 update shenanigans which, as it turned out, were a result of trying to force the ova into the game) or a miracle caused by outside influence. Simultaneously, we're meant to reek for heroes with not much characterization either, often performing heinous acts (Goultard is the prime example). Ankama's not good at writing, period - Tot in particular.

I've noticed Ankama are great at making villains
HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA
Get your post-OVA Harebourg salt out of here. Because Nox, Jiva(?), pre-OVA Harebourg, Merkator and hell, you even said Qilby yourself (a damn Eliatrope) are all fantastic and well developed villains. Their motivations and goals are interesting, and just are fantastic characters in their own right.
If you list Jiva as a vllain we don't have much to discuss here

that's the problem with the manga, the de facto most heroic figure in the lore - next to goddess Sacrier - becomes a one dimensional villain motivated by shitty romantic subplot

Also listing Merkator here is the cheapest attempt at trying to pander to me I've seen from anyone, he hardly has any canon personality lmao

Assuming the picture I saw was the right one, I think she was more along the lines of drunk, rather than having an ahegao face.
For how long were you around? Very few people at Ankama have innocent intentions, it's pretty clear we're essentialy looking at someone's furry porn there.

The only good way to design Pandawa would be to make her more like Ecaflip tbh, otherwise it's guaranteed to just be generic fanservice design: furry edition. I dislike a lot of Ottomo's designs, especially Osamodas (why would female Osa look any less elderly than the normal one? Why the enormous breasts if the body is clearly feline?) and Feca (where are the horns), but his Pandawa was pretty much perfect, the only good design the character will ever have most likely since Ankama, and especially Tot, Xa and Ancestral-Z are more preoccupied with making shit pandering to own fetishes and/or greasy basement dwellers who love "the hips anime!!!!" than with creating something worthwile.

@Celio

Dont try so hard to be like Mayor Caligari :U
Let him choose his own path, old Caligari fades away slowly from the wankfoo fandom and the world needs a new one to uphold balance; a crafty politicial, Mayor Caligari, rather than the wannabe generalissimus of old, MaJor.

Wakfu is plain life
Stasis is imitation or recreation of it - undead, demons, machines, I bet viruses would be stasis too and so on

The narrative, however, fails at large at doing much with it because Tot fears technology for some reason, especially going by Islands of Wakfu and its whole "Eliatropes are good and pure, Mechasms are horrid evil from beyond the stars even though all the want is justice for a kid who literally got vivisected" plot, not to mention every single larger non-shushu villain being to some degree technology-based, while heroes only rely on their divine right to something and such. It's dumb after you see it over and over.

Why do you hate Frigost so much Tot? Also, why do you and Xa claim you love Vivi from FFIX and his arc is a "great inspiration" to you or something and then essentially remove the character whose design was almost 1:1 adaptation of Vivi's from the game?

Questions aside, I'd like to thank you for all the EPIC writing advice I got from your work. Nobody could teach me how to write female characters quite as well as Ankama's media did - you just need to do the exact opposite as Tot would do to write a multi-faceted character with interesting agenda and balanced personality. This amazing method has proven to be very effective for me in the past months and I recommend it to everyone wholehearly. Thanks again, Tot, for an EPIC lesson in how to not write - your plan to produce content which is meant to teach newbies what not to do while constructing a fantasy setting is a great success. I have to admit the odd ironic mannerism around it and sarcastially presenting the whole thing as something exciting when taken as face value is wearing off, it also might scare off these who want to pursue help with learning how to not write. I hope you'll take my advice to your heart, Tot, cheers! Godspeed with further lessons like this, could you please try to show us how to not write post-apo settings next?

mabye sram is like rushu so probably this is his real form and the fatty one it's just the lazy sram mode
Rushu's true form was bad too, like someone's attempt at drawing a generic lovecraftian monstrosity for no appearent reason; it didn't really fit the character either since Rushu's a jovial, violent dumbass. Every single one of these unused designs that were halfway between Rushu's fake/Dofus form and what we ultimately got as the final one were better than this (also the best Rushu overall was the unused blacksmith design anyway).

Also, this kinda makes no sense either since the fatty form was already meant to be real, with the previous skeletal gargoyle one being a humanoid disguise...

Sram - A.M.A.Z.I.N.G design! Propably the best of them all so far. The hair and hairpins explain the haircut of female sram while the skull head explain the skull mask of male srams. It looks awsome, way better then this arachnee thing we see in wakfu game. It reminds me of Solkrupt, wich is also awsome. Its just perfect, my favorite god so far.
I disagree,Sram is actually among the worst ones shown here. The slight redesign ignores a common design problem adressed pretty well before, a desire to make everything vaguely evil the same basic, generic kind of badass, which ignores the fact that evil should also have something laughable and pathetic about it – that’s why fantasy settings tend to have caricatural goblins and imps as backup for spiky black evil knights, or why the likes of Bruegel and Bosch populated hell with pathetic, miserable little creatures made out of mismatched parts on their paintings.

Sram’s Dofus design balanced both of these aspects: he's fat, rotund and pathetic, slobbering with his tongue out with a dumb grin on his face, presumably thinking about his beloved children or something similar (good characterization btw, especially considering how shitty demigod-related writing was all around with the exception of Gein and QoT), but simultaneously his pose, weaponry, horrifying mask and the general venomous spider impression he gives provide a sense of danger suitable for his position within the pantheon; it told a lot more about the character than the new one does. Sure, it’s cool in the way which probably appeals to 16-year-olds who will also be glad to see designs which have no appeal outside of cleavage, but it tells nothing about the character. It’s just painfully uninspired and generic.

for me this 2 baby ecaflip on wakfu can be really something in lore terms for this 2 characters
is that captain atcha? whats the other one? dofus's or something?
highly obscure character Atcham and even more obscure Kerubim who never showed up in anything and are all-around super esoteric stuff barely anyone heard about

Still, whether you like it or not, it IS canon. It might be better just to accept it.
Don't even try, he won't accept anything since nothing is like what he wants.
glad to see my legend lives on even after if i post like once every 3 months

anyway i still want to know who thought a good idea for a lore relevant character is "that one monky nobody gives a shit from the island of caricatures bordering on offensive, but in BLACK AND WITH RED EYES HOLY SHIT"
like everyone knows tot's creatively bankrupt but this is new level of shit, lol

I'm guessing it will be Moon itself. If its another character I would be kinda disappointed by the fact that Moon in Moon Island is just a npc with retarded looking art, but that would be surprising.

Tot made us all guess that its Moon in fact in his second letter, maybe he could've joking, maybe not.

And oh look, beta is unavailable, maybe this could mean that its being updated with the latest content? I can't wait, omg the anxiety is killing me...
Moon is the boss of kannibal, while would he be the boss of two dungeons?
Let me tell you something:

This monkey


Its not this monkey.


Like, they're not the same, they only look like, you know? The first one is worshipped by the Kanniballs, they do think that he is the incarnation of a god that would awaken the volcano, Moon. You can find him outside of the dungeons, above the big gate.
The second one is his Dark side, the one that is the actual boss of kannibal dungeon, Darkly Moon, he was awaken by Moon when the war against the skeleton Piwates was happening, yet, they're not the same Monkey, after the war happened, they fought each other for the control of the island. Moon won the battle.
someone was paid to write this and someone thought it's a good idea to have it as canon but simultaneously a lot of shit gets retconned to fir the ovas

lol

Hey Tot why are you babbling about "transmedia" so much if a few years ago development of a huge amount of mmo features was halted because apparently you felt like "too many elements would be connected together"? :^)
