For some time, I've been waiting for this Inn release, but never consider the implications many have pointed. And now thinking about it, 13-14 releases related to only a single board is way too much... Yet I don't think remove it from the equation is the solution, as it has been said it expand the concept of multiverse, and imo in a cool way.
Personally I think this conceptually give us more to think about it about the DF lore, unlike many have concluded. As OpprobriousPinecones said, DF and AQW narratives related to Drakath aren't consistent, and how I see it, they both have no reason to be consistent. DF write it's own version of the events on his own world, I've never thought DF Drakath would end the same way AQW Drakath (again, multiverse) making a story arc for DF with no final. But how a release full focused on AQW can help with this? The Inn released are meant for endgame content that test or capabilities and creativity, and reward us with items which are meant for help on more Inn releases and a few ocasions on DF regular content. Then I was wondering, could we get what happened to DF Drakath as a reward for beating one or two different challenges as an extra reward? I am not saying that Dove and Verly make a full cinematic or anything, just give us hints maybe as a new book on the libraseum of what happened to him after the chaos eye appeared, maybe a diary of himself and we got rewarded with pages or something like the last Maleoundrus release. While the fight might be base on AQW content, the reward could be a closure for a DF story.
That doesn't solve the problem of the multiple releases focused on this particular board, so indifferent of what I've suggested, this release might take a different release order, giving every 5-6 months a Chaos release content with two Chaos lords like some people have commented, the same way the first 6 C7 were delivered, while the rest take normal Inn releases. Giving the amount of work this might involve, the chaos beast might not be considered at all, while we get a Extreme version of every Chaos lord, I believe is more comfortable design a buff version of them, that program a entirely different Boss. This will make the Chaos lords board the most ambituous of all boards, and will take a few years to be fully complete, while it doesn't interfere that much with DF releated Inn content.
I have no idea of the amount of work this might be, and I believe this even might be too much to ask for, yet is the only way I imagine is possible to take most of the arguments exposed before on this thread.
For someone who fought against them in AQW it is a pleasure to fight them in DF format, adding more strategy to the fight unlike in AQW, where the fights are quicker (mostly), not to much strategy focused. I insist that, delete this release is not the solution, and it might be a wasted opportunity, so I hope this at least give some people something to think about.
