The update for the “Guardians of Peace” wave hit nearly two days back. The “Content” section of the corresponding content update page has still not started receiving datamine text trickling (they’re still a bunch of placeholder stubs), which much of the fanbase expected would start before the core content went live at the following daily reset. (Given how tight the updates have been dropping these days, the finishing point was expected to be shortly after the daily reset; while this site’s datamine rush analysises have been known to wrap up before daily reset in the past, the updates were also dropping comparatively earlier in those days, with later update drops meaning adjusted expectations of how a timely quality datamine rush reaches completion.)
Although there’s a roadmap of what should be hitting the “Content” section in the table of contents, that alone is not enough for the average player to fully know what to expect from what’s been added to the game in the update. Furthermore, without any sort of datamine text trickling–not even the character and skill texts–there’s no indication that any of the character skill kits are being analyzed (I always look at the skill text to see if any weapon type has gotten the Micaiah treatment–that is, new basic weapon skills such as the Light tree Micaiah dragged in–before I begin looking for the final details involving completed skill kits; I eagerly start awaiting the trickling of text into the “Content” sections as soon as the unit stats hit, the unit stats hitting being the signal of the full-on start of the datamine rush). The way this site presents the core content analysis–in other words, the “Content” sections of the content update pages–is why I prefer to come here during datamine rushes and not look elsewhere.
Worse off, this is starting to become a trend–the last content update was never fully completed (the dataminers thought the fanbase didn’t need advance knowledge of, among a few other things, the accessory descriptions [they thought the names in the table of contents were enough], information about the Lost Lore event, or the Røkkr Sieges bosses [outright denying any new bosses were added despite the update actually adding new bosses]), and since the start of September, only three of eight updates–“The Chosen Ones”, Mythic Thrasir, and Legendary Leif–had their content update pages completed in a timely manner that this site had long since been known for back in the Book I and II eras. It’s as if the dataminers don’t even care about this site or its content update pages anymore and are actively encouraging those who have long trusted this site’s “Content” sections of the content update pages to have their first @impulse be to go elsewhere to places far less efficient (read: more disjointed) at presenting this core information.
…OK, I’m done venting for the moment. I hope that, if the dataminers actually do not hate the fanbase, I can expect to see a quality text trickle fully finished by this time tomorrow…
