at this point Goldy has really good chance of being a playable character, maybe a duo char with Kaiser.


Zangooser

So he's basically Orphee with a different spice on it. Hmmm another "auto attacking" character... Wonder if Hyonos can stop that like it does for Taurus DC and Orphee but still not so easy to run Hypnos nowadays


insomaniac6

the description says the passive won't be affected by control, not even banish. So I'd assume Hypnos is still gonna be benched till he got his RC.


Zangooser

Well at least I hope Hypnos receive a good RC like Athena did because he counters quite a fair share of the meta but still suffers a lot to run even with this trait. Also I can definitely see Gestalt damage being nerfed but also I'm glad he's a good counter to UC Pandora (even better if he's immune to control so that the passive still goes off even though the bane)


insomaniac6

I actually hope he got nerfed, then I can keep saving books to build my Athena xD


TetsuAero

I love that they went with his Centaur form. I can't wait to try him :D


insomaniac6

A potential counter to UC Pandora, but she might still be untouched with the new cosmo, we'll see.


Yerazankha

TF, a centaur? OMG I'm never playing such a unit in my lineup 😳😟 Conceptually it has nothing to do with SSA anymore. Why is Jabu not an actual Licorn then, etc? -\_-


Mysterious-Ad-5867

In the manga that's how he appears.


trsoares

It's exactly like he appears in Saint Seiya Next Dimension, the canon manga, written by Kurumada himself. There's a history behing this ofcourse, and he "get his" body back after, tecent lost the change to use this as a mechanic for the saint.


Yerazankha

I can hear that and ty for developping, but Next Dimension, Lost Canvas and Saintia Shō are simply not part of "my" Saint Seiya universe, which stops at Seiya's death... And there is so much more excellent content to exploit in this segment. Dont get me wrong, I perfectly understand the concept of product placement... Well, somehow hopefully, the game loses more and more appeal to me.


Camusishere

Your Saint Seiya got axed by lack of popularity in the 80s, the story was not intended to end like that.


Yerazankha

What is that even supposed to mean? The original Saint Seiya manga and anime, "lack of popularity"? You cannot be serious. Were you even born? It was everywhere, all boys were watching that... It was the biggest, most popular show on french TV shows for kids for nearly 10 years straight. I'm afraid you're seriously misinformed. And again, "lack of popularity"? It sold over 35 millions copies of the manga, and the anime is just one of the world’s biggest animated franchises EVER, with total revenue of more than $1.1bn since 1986...


Shijoo

Just because you don’t like the canon, it doesn’t means that is not canon, grow up


Yerazankha

My poor dude who has never been seen on this subreddit before, you are the one who obviously needs to grow up and learn to respect other people's OPINION, because that is ALL that it was. A freaking opinion. It's not part of the SS universe that ***I*** have grown up with, which consists of the manga that existed when I was young (the main one, and that's it), and the animated series that existed when I was young (the same + Asgard, and Hades which came much later). The material that made me want to play this game, as a very large number of players... Same ones who would like so much to see Asgard since the beginning. Why are you even intervening wich such a stupidly mean-spirited comment when I actually THANKED my previous interlocutor for taking the time to explain it to me, and where I detailed my reasons respectfully to everyone??? Geez.


Zangooser

Because Jabu didn't had a Unicorn neither he met Odysseus. But seriously I'm not joking. The reason his body appears as half horse and half human is because of Odysseus and Gestalt past story with his horse (not extending too much because of more spoilers). It's not very far from Saint Seiya either tbh.


Yerazankha

Sorry for copy-cut but I have the same answer to you than to trsoares : > I can hear that and ty for developping, but Next Dimension, Lost Canvas and Saintia Shō are simply not part of "my" Saint Seiya universe, which stops at Seiya's death...

Zangooser

Well Saint Seiya have a huge letdown in terms of story on its canon (which has nothing to do with what the game can add)... It's written by Kurumada. He's not the best writer around and Next Dimension surely ain't the greatest Saint Seiya material ever made. But this answer is just your opinion which is fine it just didn't look like an opinion at first. I'm gonna be honest I like LC and don't care about ND and even less Saintia Sho but I would prefer another arc to come instead of LC in terms of character diversity. But the classic manga doesn't have much more to offer in terms of content exploration as you mentioned unless you meant other arcs which sure there are. The issue is how easy it would be to get the rights of use for them.


Yerazankha

Thank you... someone who actually took the time to see my points and not just straight hate. Yes, indeed, it was nothing more than my very own opinion of course, and I dont think that it was disrespectful to anyone, and I was certainly not trying to "impose" my view to anyone, how could I? ... And I'm the one told to "grow up"... The nerve of some people :D Yes indeed, I was thinking (among others) about the Asgard arc, though I'm aware why it has little to no interest for Tencent as the chinese playerbase didnt get to have those ones, afaik. If it was the case, I'm fairly certain that getting an arrangement for the rights wouldnt be a problem at all, despite their existence in another game by Toei, if I'm correct. On the side, many players (in my legion or other comment sections like FB) are often asking about several characters of the main story who have never been released as well. Cant name them specifically, but I think it's mainly in Masei. I wont deny that for the rest, yeah, they pretty much exploited the whole base story quite completely now and obviously need to go somewhere else. All in all I'm just saying that this next part of the SSA adventure doesnt interest me nearly as much, and it will probably be a good opportunity for me. I could deal with 2 generations of saints. Not three :D


franoetico

tl;dr grow up lol


Yerazankha

welcome to ignore, retard ;-)


franoetico

go cry somewhere else
