They should have made the Wings of Valor CE Only!

  • #1
    Now that you all have your pitchforks and torches...I really do mean that.

    I would have preferred to keep the wings CE only and had given the Spectral Hound to Preorders. I like the idea of keeping all of the Wings tied to CE's. It would have gone with the pattern they were establishing.

    Tyreal Wings = D3 CE

    Blade Wings = SC2:HotS CE

    I know many will disagree, but that's my opinion. I'm not going to fume and obsess over it though ;)

    I totally agree with you on the wings, but I think that they should not give the hound out with preorders also.

    However, I don't care about vanity items at all, so I have hard time feeling like I have a pig in this race.

    they should have made a lot of things different about d3, oh well
  • #4
    While in theory I DO agree with you... I'm getting the DD, so I'm glad they're not CE only :p



    Unless DD would have them as well, (which makes sense DD has all the in game stuff the CE has, the only difference between the two is the physical stuff) in which case... yeah you're totally right, they should change that :D

    I bought the CE for D3 due to the diablo head/bloodshard usb. that sold it for me to be honest. you can't compare that to the "mouse pad of ROS" >.> collector editions just aren't what they used to be. But then again, most ppl in the economy now days don't want to spend a lot of money on manythings, so the incentive of imperius wings, may boost more copy sales of RoS for some. So I look at it as a clever marketing strat for blizz to give all those that preorder the imperios wings.

    Actually, the blade wings are also available through purchasing the digital deluxe version of SC2:HotS.

    I do agree that the wings should have been kept as a Collectors edition exclusive item, it doesn't bother me that they aren't though. What bothers me is that we'll probably see EVERYONE wearing them, but hey, maybe we won't.

    At the end of the day, those who bought the CE for D3V will still feel special because they'll have wings that are almost unobtainable now. :)

    Blade wings are for anyone that bought online deluxe as well, not even preorder. I have them because im a SC2 player anyway. If everyone wanted them, everyone would have them. I dont see the problem of the wingz of valor...... everyone has them, who cares? Can some of these people only feel good if they are the only one feeling good? Why do you care if someone else has the wings for fuck sake. Personally im using blade wings on my DH and wings of valor on my Crusader. Love the contrast.

    I didnt mean a single person in particular, thats why i said some these people. Its a huge complaint even on the official forums, i just dont like the attitude in general, just be grateful for these kind of meaningless gifts. Personally i rather video game company go away with ingame gifts on preorder and timed collection stuff in the game, its just bad taste to me, but its great marketing. Collection should be physical collection stuff, you know a statue, a keychain, an art book, you know collection.

    I dont see why it should only be people like me that get collector edition that should get ingame stuff like wings, it shouldnt be the selling point of a collector edition, if it is, it means the package is pretty poor to be honest.

    It seems you didn't completely read what I said. I said the Wings and the Dog should be swapped. Wings should be CE to stay with the pattern and give the dog to pre-orders. You still get a shiny cosmetic item and Wings stay a staple of CEs.

    I agree. But in the end I guess they just made this to get ppl more attracted for the pre-purchase. Simply to see if the work will end up being worth or not. With all the fuzz about D3 and all the bitch and whine, I guess they thought it's nice to have an overview if ppl are still on Blizzard's side or not. I guess wings can change the opinion of ppl :)

    Well in a few months when the vanity shop opens up and 3 wings and 13 transmogs and 5 pets comes. all players wont have the same wings.

    As for RoS:CE compared to D3:CE its a complete joke i know. Almost not even worth it but as a collector and for the sake of collecting i will get it.
  • #14
    It is astounding how many people actually care about a tiny cosmetic item. So many threads and posts about such a shenanigan. Personally, I do not care that much about how my character looks as long as he is strong.

    From the business side of things.. I really don't get why they did this. There is not a single hugely interesting thing in the DD edition for players who aren't active in WoW.

    And the CE box is even worse.. I don't know many true PC gamers who still don't use a specialized mouse mat or at least have a favorite mouse mat they could not be without.

    Oh well cheap wings this time around. Though will prolly still use the D3v wings anyways.
  • #16
    Yeah I do agree as well, it should only CE and DD

    Tyreal Wings = D3 CE

    Blade Wings = SC2:HotS CE

    Let me fix this for you

    Justice Wings = D3 CE / D3 PS3 Pre-order / D3 Xbox360 Pre-order / D3 Console Market Purchase
    Blade Wings = SC2: HotS CE
    Valor Wings = D3: RoS (all) Pre-order

    I think that Blade and Valor should both be in D3 CE (not Digital Deluxe for example). This is my opinion. But since they ruined the D3 CE with the Justice Wings being "all over" I feel that it doesnt matter too much anymore and I guess that the wings would be free for all anyway later on. Gonna be fun to see if they are within the PS4 market either way too when the "Ultimate Evil" edition comes..

    This was funny to read, I understand that some ppl are a bit "stingy" about the wings going out to EVERYONE that pre order the game, A bit sad tbh since i think it shall be CE only that get it.

    Another funny thing guys, Grow up a bit its just some wings, I have an Unopened D3V CE box 60Cm away that i can open if i want wings but naaa save it as a memory insteed, Its just wings that are made up from alot of 1´s and 0´s =D

    Do not think its the "wings" it self. I think its "pay more, get more" and wings feel exclusive, even if you feel they are useless, bad-ass or just plain stupid.

    And its the life of a hardcore gamer - giving them more exclusive stuff for the right to brag because they deserve it,

    since they have been staying true to the series, and/or some other reason.

    I kinda agree, although I wont be buying the CE as that's just not the sort of thing i'm into stuff like this should just be kept to the CE. On top of that, i've always hated pre-order bonus because i've always felt that the more a company tries to get people to pre-order the less faith they have in their product. By this I mean trying to make sales before the games is actually released and reviewed, so I just don't like pre-order stuff in general :P.
