Social justice is a pretty dang old political idea and a lot of developments taken as granted today was built atop the achievements of socialist movements of all sorts in the second half of XIXth century and the interwar period. I know it might be hard to get if you're American and confuse any form of the left with communism or a nebulou 4chan boogeyman but that's how it works.

I really hope you're not backwards enough to proclaim that social support for the poor, free education and healthcare and such are work of the devil and sjws, although I won't be surprised by that kind of reply
In an attempt to keep this topic "on topic" consider this my last reply to you here.
*Feel free to DM me if you have further questions regarding the toxic nature of Social Justice and Feminism.

1. Indeed, Social Justice is old..

2. As for "achievements of socialist movements".

I like your deep polemic with Kautsky and Bernstein presented here and relying on the false socialism = communism equation popular in the USA due to cold war paranoia

As I take it you're rich enough to not have to be grateful for the fact some basic expenses are covered by the state but sadly for must of us subhuman scum outside of USA that's not the daily reality, I'm sorry I've attempted to make you consider historical backgrund of certain social movements, how foolish of me, I should've watched some YT edgelord to truly evalute the worth of socialism.

Why do you format your posts like this
Ease of use and understanding.
*IE: Clarity.
It's the opposite, actually. They look like an eyesore all around. On top of that your stances are unclear and you don't word them fully most of the time, relying on cryptic YT links and buzzwords without assigned meaning (primarly sjw/gg which are, in the end, universal boogeymen). You're not exactly the best at the discourse.

Also I liked when the gamergate guy here was outraged that "Arrow came out as sjw"

Green Arrow was a socialist comic since the 70s, if anything that's downgrading the character's worldview to a less radical one you tool, maybe read comics once in a while if you want to discuss politics presented in them

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

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.

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?
