    Tyrael new wings?

    Well. check it out!
    http://www.blizzard.com/diablo3/

    Comparison:
    http://diablo.incgamers.com/blog/comments/tyrael-is-moving/

    is this just a new art direction. or is this some sort off blizzard shinanigans!
    Just like the melting ice before blizzcon.
    Will Tyrael start looking more evil as time passes bye. and just before the release of D3 he will have horns and and red glowing eyes? :D

    dont know if this already have bin posted, and if so im sorry. also sorry if this topic is better suited for another subforum.

    //Peace

    Re: Tyrael new wings?

    He also didn't have those huge spikes on his shoulders in Diablo 2 unless I'm merely remembering wrong. I don't think anyone ever speculated about it aside from me and no discussion ever came from it anyways.

    I think Tyrael might be more central to the story. Will he turn evil? Maybe, but I can't think of how he would, so I'm ruling it out for now.

    If you look at Tryael's face (black), you can see that the pixels change in a sequence of 4 different arrangement. Is this new also?

    The first one is clear, and the 3 others are more grainy. It's as if they already draw something but they censored it. The last one (still grainy) shows the shape of something that looks like a face or a skull. I drew it here :

    NICE YOU GAVE US JUNKIES OUR FIX!
    But hey.... maybe it's not Tyrael? Maybe it's Imperius... there's alot of talk about him in the lore forum.
    to the topic creator, I wouldn't of come across until tomorrow... you've made my night... and tomorrow! TY!
    EDIT: tomorrow's a thursday... that's the day they usually update the site! NICE, agian ty! oh and also, isn't tomorrow the end of the 30 day ban or whatever it was? Could it be that Blizzard is being nice or is it just a Site update? Either way I know it's something.... it's freakin ^&%#^$% ^%&#%&#%&&*@^%^^$ awesome!

    Re: Tyrael new wings?

    I think Gamekk's find is too much a matter of matrixing going on. Matrixing is something that happens a lot when people think they're seeing ghosts in photographs and it's just their brains seeing a certain arrangement of features/pixels and then the brain attempts to form something recognizable with all the visual data, providing a false positive, something that isn't really there.

    You can see a face there if you try really want to, sure, but if I try really hard I'm sure I could find a smiley face on the embossing of his armor. But that's just the thing, it'd be made up in my head.

    Re: Tyrael new wings?

    I agree with Captain Dingo, but it never hurts to look for the possible. But then I disagree to Dingo's first comment (nothing personal), But I think the spikes are just a new innovation in the art style because of the limited capacity d2 held for it's time as opposed to our current situation in video games.
    But then again they could be spikes of viciousness and Tyrael could be evil, but my money is on Imperius.... I'm imagining that this is going to be exactly like the WWI teaser.... every week (or a given amount of time) they'll change something until the truth is finally revealed.... but that's all assumptions on nothing until we get the final "ok that's it!"
    Ah... but this is bringing back the good ole excitment I had from the WWI teasers, anyone else remember that too?

    *Shrug* I didn't have a big conspiracy theory for the spikes anyways, I just noticed it was a new thing and only wondered if it had any reason behind it or if it was just an upgrade to his look.

    Re: Tyrael new wings?

    Yeah, same. however!.... whoever's on that main page is looking an awfully lot more like that mysterious angel from the artwork. (Check out the lore forums and see the "has Tyrael been working with primes" topic by Zsiegfried, it's a great read for lore)

    Oh, nice update DIInick!

    You should upload the images used in that news item as well, to show the differences on the site! =)

    Re: Tyrael new wings?

    It could be just a graphics update, since it looks really cool with no obvious reason behind it. Unless there is another update in the future, I wouldn't look too much into it. I know it's fun, but still :scratchchin:

    Has Tyrael also moved closer or does the front page pictures just show him so? Like is he moving towards you bit by bit or something.

    Re: Tyrael new wings?

    It looks to me like the "camera", if you will, is moving closer to Tyrael. Also, I note that there seem to be "sparks" coming off of him.

    In any event, I'm rather shocked that Tyrael has taken up smoking.

    :whistling:

    The two images in the news item are taken with a wider screen for the older pic. Sorry, my screen resolution is less than that of HolyKnight4000 ;)

    It's your browser cache. Use Ctrl+F5 to clear it =)

    Take the time to SS if you want to keep a copy of the old site ;)

    Re: Tyrael new wings?

    I swear to god I'm seeing things in Tyrael's face. CaptainDingo, I might be "matrixing", but I extracted the video loop of Tyrael from the SWF, its a 7 second clip that repeats in the main flash file. I definitely noticed 3 distinct changes in his face at:

    - 1.5 seconds
    - 3.5 seconds
    - 5.5 seconds

    To me, the one @ 1.5s appears to be a googley-eyed smiley ...
    The one @ 3.5s I can't really make out ...
    The one @ 5.5s looks like the flower in the O from the rainbow shirt...

    1.5s comparison: [​IMG]
    t-shirt: [​IMG]

    I'm going crazy I think? lol...

    He hasn't moved closer
    Look at the position of the candles on the right, or those hanging on the roof (forgot what it's called)

    Also, that's an awesome D III t-shirt there, lol :)
