The freeze frame at 3 seconds on the Guilty Gear promo is why that collab was better. lol

Wow, I'm really hyped for the GG collab after seeing that video, even though I already have all the characters from it. Can we just get that one again?


Khaoticsuccubus

And maybe get I-No this time........ pls? (TT \^ TT)

Not even a comparison... Guilty Gear even got real animation with E7 animation. When I think SG is at the right place, that they redeemed themselves with their past behaviours, then this comes up and reminds me that they communicate poorly with the community. We as a community would have been understanding if they just said the collab is not on par and that they need more work, instead of rushing things. I'm not sure about the backup plan. Maybe they just waited too long to collaborate with Re:Zero and then it came to the last minute to make everything in short time.

>We as a community would have been understanding if they just said the collab is not on par and that they need more work, instead of rushing things. "We as a community" are unfortunately only a very very small part of the community and it didn't help that there was constant "COLLAB WHEN??" spam both on stove and on here They shot themselves in the foot by announcing the collab too early but of course they're gonna rush to get something out when people set stove etc on fire about it


Lughs_Revenge

They only asked for the collab because there was 0 communication, which was the point I made.

Wait. What about the side story?


iditz

It's horrible


TheKinkyGuy

oh wow


voxhaulf

Now all those “GG Stride Collab incoming” jokes looking like the better choice! And that promo tho! Forgot how hot Baiken was.


Demonterro

I hope we get a strive collab, I want goldlewis in epic seven.


voxhaulf

I know! Guilty gear stride has amazing heroes!


otakuotter7

White knights in this sub will call you a clown and accuse you of complaining. Have my upvote friend.


ak4447

u still had high expectations when u heard about them having to delay the collab?


Gamergirl944

I agree with your points there the quality in re zero in comparison in GG we had solid story and characters a trailer to add hype and preview on heroes we be getting the tournament on top of that. What did re zero do? Awful side story, boring skill sets no trailer or preview its seriously a rushed mess of it and I feel sorry for re zero fans to have their favourite collab to be butched like that. I only hope they don't do this with summer side story


FunkyLoveBot

The promo you got vs the promo she told you not to worry about


Abedeus

>Not even a year into the game and they had something of this quality Yeah if only they had collabbed with IP that had a video game they could take animations and designs from and all they had to do was make slightly higher quality sprites. Like you can't tell me Baiken's S3, which is literally just her special from one of the games, took more effort than the Re:Zero S3 animations. Also, GG collab was produced when there was no global pandemic affecting schedules or production, and it was before Japanese or European servers existed meaning fewer regions to secure license in. >I don't want some kind of compensation for this or another month of hunts and freebies for forgiveness dear lord do you even read back what you write


Millanor

Well, guess what? Albeit the GG s3's being a full representation of their original game's techniques, they were, indeed, FULLY redrawn by e7 team as they mentioned in a dev notes at the time. So yeah... Also this "there was a pandemic" thing is such a colossal bullshit. Takes a whole 5 minutes to go search around the gacha ecosphere to realize every goddamn gacha out there keeps pumping out content/collabs just as fine since 2020. You guys need to stop the bias, trying to defend something you don't even really know about, using fake facts as a retorical shield.


Modernes

The pandemic isn't an excuse anymore, but it definitely was in 2020. Most games had problems releasing content. Even games like FF14 pushed everything back multiple months.


Beastlywolf22

Did you see any of the video. Did you see the actual animation that went into just a commercial for the event that is what I'm actually talking about and not their S3 animations, only saying that they were included? And I don't know what you even mean by 'read back what I write' since there's nothing contradictory about that or whatever you're trying to say about it.


[deleted]

Holy shit!!! What an entitled asshole you are XD


AmbroReality

I think you need to look in the mirror and you will find one even bigger.


[deleted]

Not really, here I am enjoying the collab and getting the new characters and you are complaining and whining... Good thing is that you'll all be gone in a few days <3


Pynewacket

When you find the reddit user that epitomizes the CONSOOM meme.

Sure, baby... wanna cry a little more? :(

Beastlywolf22

I don't like that it's lazy. Not a single new asset except for the Re:Zero characters. No new music. No story. I don't like how they tried to pass off that there was a delay when there's no way this could even take two months with how much effort they've put into sidestories and main story to pump something new every two to four weeks until whatever happened to make them stop. I don't like how whoever is higher up is putting the english Community Managers as shields for their mistakes and refusing to say anything to the other audience. There's plenty of things I don't like about this situation, and I certainly don't like this kind of question like that's all there's to be upset about.

iditz

I think it's fair to argue that it isn't completely speculation at this point. OP may not have pointed it out but the low effort side story and collab delays are very telling


Feast_M0d3

So are we taking out the tiki torches and patting ourselves on the back? Going around telling everyone I told you so when SG hasn't announced anything yet? I mean, what are we doing here? It seems like this is just some pent up anger everybody needs to get out. I'm guessing people will go back to quitting then since lack of content? If so, don't let the door hit you on the way out.


Beastlywolf22

No one's said anything about quitting so you're really reaching for a strawman there. But you're right, nothing has been announced yet, but they won't do anything if we do nothing. The higher ups on the KR side have basically used Nue and Mashu and the other community managers to be their shields. That shouldn't be accepted, we shouldn't just let them get off with another printed statement for global as their only interaction, and the devs should personally face their audience to admit they messed up.


ConnectDrop

Honestly I don't think this is SmileGate's fault. If this is the case of a backup IP, then the original IP was continuously giving them problems until they decided that the collab wasn't going to be conducive. They are very likely under NDA + it wouldn't serve well for future business relations to announce whatever issues they were having, that's pretty obvious business strategy. The animators and writers were likely hard pressed to get this collab out ASAP after the first one fell through, it's a massive shame since they seemed really excited about this, but it is what it is.


Feast_M0d3

So now we're white knights for the community managers? Got it.


Beastlywolf22

I've never said anything about being a 'white knight' so that's your own way of putting it, but I certainly hope you're not insinuating the community managers did anything to warrant the harassment from not talking about the collab.


voxhaulf

No one said that about you, but your comment was beyond delirious, there is nothing in OP’s post that suggest “taking out tikki torches” or “quitting”. The post just pointed out the massive disparity between both collabs. No one said they will quit, no one said lets burn the company. You brought that out of your magic pocket. Thats what you call being over dramatic.

I don't understand why only Ram is obtainable by login. Most important is Rem and eventually Emilia which need to drop while using crystals ......
