    The joke is on you if you know who that guy (or any other youtuber/streamer) is.

    I watched half of c4g stream, it does look much better than the early august/july streams. Also a fan of the channel since elex 1 was released and this guy is a long time gothic nerd

    The dude said that both clerics and outlaws are now minor factions in the games.

    You can already see that they get less skills than other factions.
    The cleric camp is a lot smaller than other camps coming from the size on the map.
    Outlaw camp is big but could also be just empty.

    So effectively we don't really have 5 kinda equal camps. We get 3 real camps and 2 minor camps that got neglected.

    The favoritism PB have shown towards the Berserkers repeatedly in both games is frankly disgusting. :outrage:

    Damn. Also explains this scene in trailer:
    Show Spoiler

    Some kinda council of factions but clerics and outlaws nowhere to be seen...

    3 romanceable characters: Caja(Berserkers), Nyra (Albs), Nasty (now Morkons)

    Outlaws and Clerics really will get the short end of the stick. :(

    Of-fucking-course Nasty had to join Teenage Angst - The Faction. :lol:

    Also, fuck PB up the ass for shilling the tree-hugging yokels over Clerics.

    Well, Clerics are really too similar to Albs to justify them being an equal faction. And the edginess was transfered from the Outlaws to the Morkons, so...

    Outlaws are bound to weaken and dissolve just by their philosophy. Too chaotic, too disorganized compared to the zealots of bersekers and cleric.


    While, it seems the truth of what calaan is canonically got out. Being at the frontline of albs war + your god being literally debunked and killed in a nietzschian sense will severely weaken a faith based faction. Even you still can live by the teaching's philosophy, the divinity of calaan crumbled, which is gonna affect it heavily.

    So they just went the Gothic 1 ----> Gothic 2 route and changed absolutely nothing besides location and adding some new monsters and weapons? I'm sold! They could at least add good potato dubbing.

    Why is a fifty year old German man dressing like a teenager at a Cradle of Filth concert? What the fuck is with these people? I never want to hear Germans (or Austrians for that matter) telling Americans we don't know how to dress.

    Germans can't dress for their life but Björn and Jenny seem also to be turbo-autists. Just think of the Albs in ELEX as a german stand-in.

    Outlaws and Clerics shrinking? Ok, it makes sense story wise actually.

    But I want to see Berserkers evolve more, and internal conflicts between their faction more as well.

    This tech vs. nature thing actually sounds intriguing if it's an internal factional battle, like your choice between warlords allows for certain tech based abilities vs. magic ones to pop up (i.e. magic fire arrows vs. tracking arrows or thermal tracking).

    Outlaw and Cleric skills might be more generalized now, their abilities available to everyone based on certain level ups, but not stopping you from joining the big three.

    Albs Elex usage might function similarly to a combination of old Cleric and Outlaw abilities, as they were very focused changing their bodies if I recall.

    I really hope I'm wrong about the perception that they've decided on a "canon" ending for Elex 1 & set you up with specific relationships with characters in Elex 2, Gothic mostly managed avoiding that kind of shit by making the connections between games super vague and only the point of like the Sleeper dying being integral.

    The items/inventory looks a lot better. The inventory icons in Elex 1 were really bad, gave a strong low budget/terrible design decision feel, reminded me of how in RPGMaker games every item just has a generic outline icon and doesn't feel real.
