a) We got more Ydwin content in Beast of Winter, if they were going to upgrade her to full companion status that would have been a logical point for Obsidian to do it - they did not.

 

b) Josh Sawyer recently made it clear that upgrading sidekicks to companions is to resource intensive to be done willy-nilly.

 

c) Ydwin was an incentive for a stretch-goal that wasn't hit. This is a more esoteric point, but I feel that if a stretch-goal isn't hit, then the incentive shouldn't be implemented - after all if we knew the incentive was going to be implemented anyways, then there will be less hype about hitting the goal.

 

d) Having almost completed Beast of Winter I can say that I have taken a dislike to her personality, so I am happy they didn't spend time or money on her. This is of course a matter of taste and you are free disagree.

PLease do not waste your precious time on ydwin

 

We need POTD balancing fixed first as top prioirty

Not the same developers. Balancing is not done by the people who write characters. Hence no time would be wasted.

Nah, as Night Stalker said, they did bow to the player's wishes in the form of Beast of Winter content for Ydwin.

 

I must say though, I'd rather they go back to the PoE1 system if it lets them add full companions more easily.

No, no, no. The OP's request is absurd.

 

Give me Ydwin. I'm the one who really loves her.

 

Me. Not us. ME.

If I'm typing in red, it means I'm being sarcastic. But not this time.

Dark green, on the other hand, is for jokes and irony in general.

Wait for the next dlc, given the leak

 

Don't torture us! What leak?? Is it about Ydwin? :aiee: :aiee: :aiee:

 

Ydwin will go rogue and turn everyone in the party including the watcher into thralls.

You better not be joking. Some people will be really disappointed if that doesn't happen.

Bilbo is really thirsting after Ydwin your profile pic.

 

As an aside I was under the impression that adding in companions after the fact can be a bit of minefield. What I mean, specifically is that Ydwin doesn't have all the tie ins that all the other actual companions do. Flags etc and by upgrading Ydwin to a full companion you'd have to do a ton of work to do. Unless a forum member wants to be a wealthy donor I don't see how that's at all feasible.

 

I may be mistaken (That is to say misremembering.) but I recall a Bioware dev some years ago discussing that it was actually impossible in some instances to implement new companions who weren't already in a batch of code. Something about functionality with variables and the like. But I'm not sure if that was something inherent in Mass Effect's engine (Unreal) or if it was a complex coding issue. I won't claim any authority over this subject it's just a tidbit that's bubbled to the top of my accursed brain. I don't have any clue if Unity functions differently!


Yes! We have no bananas.

Konstanten gets no love in these sorts of threads. :(  :( :(

 

At least he is not the last one remembered. Poor Fassina. :unsure:

 

 

She's the subject of a recent thread, otherwise I would have mentioned her instead. :lol:

Nope you are correct, but I think a couple things are worth mentioning.

 

1: She is easily the most popular sidekick. 

2: She is already in the game as a sidekick and all her combat barks are already done.  She would need to be added to the reputation system, maybe given a few more quest interjections, given some personal conversations beyond what she has on recruitment, and a personal quest.  The rest is complete.  That's a lot to do yeah, but it isn't the entire work load either.

 

That said I am curious what leak is getting baited here?  I heard Konstanten was actually the sidekick getting a little love in the next expansion?  Considering the name of the third expansion I will be shocked if Fessina doesn't get some involvement there as well.

Apparenly he's getting more love in the Seeker Slayer Survivor DLC :) (along the lines of Ydwin in BoW increased wordiness)

(Can't seem to find where I read that, but it came from Obs)

Edit: It was from one of Josh's posts on SA

The only way this comment could have fit your profile pic better, is if you had described her as "your precious".
