Default Re: Confused about twighlight archon animation?

The concept art is quite different from the actual unit. In the artwork, the Archon is much more slender, and no legs. The unit is far more bulkier and has legs. Perhaps if they increased his size, then slowing down his pace won't really slow his movement down, but it would make him much more intimidating as you see him walking up.

I can just imagine a few marines on post, spotting the Archon, and feeling the ground shake as the Archon takes each lumbering step towards them. Then they just look at each other with an "oh shit" look on their face. That would just be priceless.

The new archon is certainly different. I really hope they trash that walking. D:

I don't get why the twilight archon is only attacking with one hand. what's the other hand doing? shoulden't the twilight archon use two hands when he attacks? and why is there no sound on the blizzard site for the twilight archon?

Storyline-wise, I guess you could say the feet might have something to do with how DTs can be used to become Archons now. And they have feet! lol

a archon floating like in the artwork would be alot way cooler than a walking archon

Im pretty sure they retain splash because in the animation on the official website of archons killing marines, the marines next to the ones attacked first die faster.

Well, I don't really care how the Twilight Archon looks like. But I do hope that his Psi gives a nice blue glow to the surrounding area.

I don't. It would be just another glowing distraction. My biggest problem with WC3 is that I can hardly tell wtf is going on because of all the colors, etc.

Default Re: Confused about twighlight archon animation?

Amen to that - and THAT is one of the main concerns at Blizzard too, from what I understand. I like the attack animations as they are. However, those legs to GO! Archons are energy beings... legs aren't important when they can float. PLUS, Samwise would agree with me since his concept of an Archon in his art both of the Dark Archon and the Twilight Archon, is of a floating unit.

Besides, the Poll Thread also shows that the majority of SC players would rather have a floating Twilight Archon.

I'm not sure about the DA, but the regular Archon did actually have legs (just look at Lord Kieron's avatar), but he did float. The thing with the TA's walking is that it looks too much like an infernal from WC3 colored blue.

I dunno. The Infernal in WC3 is running/bouncing. The Twilight Archon is more of intimidating march/brisk walk..

Default Re: Confused about twighlight archon animation?

Now that I have thought about it, I would really love to see the TA float again. I Just watched his in-game animation and though what mach_86 said would be cool, I personally would like the TA to Feel like some sort of Demigod. An intense rippling of the air or something like that would foreshadow the coming of the Protoss Gestalt. Imagine this:
2 terran marines (sorry for for using the same situation) feeling the air or their surrounding ripple with the powerful psionic emanations of the TA then screaming into their communicators: " WE NEED BACK UP!!!", then the glowing form of the archon blasts them to kingdom come.
Well just my 2 cents.
