  • I was hoping Phoenix Obsidian would reveal more of his face (and probably hair), but instead you've made it look very generic, AAA-like and tasteless

    God.

    Just. Make. Dedicated. Gameservers. And. Let. One. Player. Host. The. Private. Match.

    Or is it either get 5 players or pay your money if you want some private shenanigans.

    I don't know how many years have passed. I still despise the Minemonkey and it'll never change!
    MOFO update wasn't such a disappointment
    CMM is the absolute worst thing SD could've made. It doesn't work at all and makes finding OBJ games so much harder. I would really like to know who at SD had that bright idea.

  • Holy mother of Phoenix. I think a peed a little. I hope it will be available with more loadouts. BUT IT LOOKS TOTALLY AMAZING.

    Eerrrr is this skin real ? :/
    It doesn't even feel in line with other Obsidian skin.
    The mechanic leg is the only part i find great. The rest and the color is meh

  • Mc1412013Mc1412013 Posts: 1,634

    2 complaints
    1- yes i am buying it, but dissapointed with his rain poncho i was hoping for that to be changed to something else.
    2-his helmet is too master chief and not medical looking.

    And finaly when the hell am i gonna get a friggin nader aimee or sparx mesh change obsidian.

    Hey look i finaly got a sig , and nothing to put here

  • boerhaeboerhae Posts: 223

  • @Ptiloui

    @stayfreshshoe can you guyz please push the pheonix obsidian back and redo him none of us well majority of us seem too like the new skin so far

    Doubt it would happen cause then the people who like this might not like the new one. But yea it's seems a bit too 'generic' to me.

    Imagine this right: if he had a white colour scheme like the doctors lab coats or something with red hightlights / accents to go with the white and red ambulance logo style. Change the poncho to a slick lab coat type thing, I dunno. Remove the watermelon and gas mask, and show a bit of his face maybe. For me, that would be something I would @$!# love, but ik others wouldn't like it as much.

  • Literally feels like a skin that should just be released for every merc as a new gold variant over an obsidian. I like Pheonix a lot but man that's a sad obsidian. Just as long as they don't @$!# up the Fragger one if they ever do one for him.

    Too glam to give a damn.
    In game as Seebetterfromadistance.

    I guess that's his point then if the only thing he finds great about the new design is what was there originally in the old one ;)

    Why would you cover more of my favorite characters face and give him the ugliest woodland camo? Like... wtf are you thinking? He's Spanish, not American.

    Give him something that goes with that, or I dunno, just make his futury crap different, just like how proxy has a mechanical eyeball or something, not this... THING you attached to his head. Like, he actually looks UGLY.

    By far your best obsidian alternate art to date has to be either the punk arty or the phantom. Probably the Phantom.

    The road is over, I finally got a sig. Hallelujah.

    This skin is ReV level bad. He looks like he was vommited on by his infant baby.

    If nothing else this is at least a first for a merc with 2 Obsidian loadouts released at different times. Though I like the classic one better.

    Classic Obsidian Phoenix

    They dont seem to be concerned with the female mercs all them have been male. I dont count the aura ones as there not mesh changes.

  • boerhaeboerhae Posts: 223

    This is what I was referring to @Mc1412013
    I suppose it was just a fun thing for them to do, but I want to see it as a skin

    New phoenix skin reminds me little bit cover art from original doom.

    Friend sent me something he found on the internet. It would probably fit more to phantom or so. But i would love black and red weapon. :)

  • n-xn-x Posts: 675

    @TitaniumRapture The black and orange is cool. But whatever color you pant this helmet. It will stay looking crappy.

    Those colors fit more the obsidian look of others mercs. But the helmet is a bit too... Antman :smiley:
    Considering Phoenix wears a helmet and a mask by default, an Obsidian skin withouth helmet, showing his red hair, combined with bloody clothes (as if he just operated recently) would have been better from my pov.
    Or taking inspiration from the mythical pheonix bird, with burnt vestments, and still with his red hair brushed like a super sayian :smile:

    Oh yeah some gory skins (blood, injuries) would be pretty cool. :)

    Well... It's better than what we're currently seeing.

    I would 100% buy this with the cash i will never have.

    My aim is as great as a beautiful Proxy.

    Neither of the two exist.

    This is way better colors han the one they are using. Still hate the poncho and the master chief hellmet needs to go

  • The phoenix skin to me looks like a sith empire stormtrooper

    Of all the helmet stereotypes, "Master Chief" is definitely not the vibe I'm getting here. The defining characteristic of the MC helmet is the front bill over the visor, similar to motocross helmets. This new Phoenix one definitely has none of that. Feels much more Stormtrooper-ish to me. Combine that with the black outfit above and he's starting to look a bit too much like Rogue One's Death Troopers.

    The extra bulk of the poncho combined with the large phoenix graphic is also starting to look quite similar to WH40K space marines shoulder pads with the imperial eagle.

    That being said, I'm not a fan of the washed out camo they gave him. This looks like Swiss Alpenflage that would have been washed a million times... Something more contrasted, possibly with a different palette than the Bronze skins would have had more impact.
