It’s happening. It’s happening! I’m so excited!
Well, you know me. It’s analysis time.
The trailer reveals nothing except that it reeks of Arkas. There’s no hints– which MIGHT mean that Arkas didn’t make it to the end, so he didn’t know what to put in the trailer? Or maybe he did and was just short on time, but this UHC was recorded a while ago…
The trailer is set in an ice spikes biome, which is very reminiscent of early UHCs. Surely that can’t be the whole map, though: no trees and it doesn’t make for good fighting. (Unless you’re going to have a Midnight Battle of Twin Peaks-esque ice spike shootout.)
There’s an odd number of players- 17. That could mean teams of three with one guest, teams of four with a wild card, teams of two with one guest, or free-for-all. (FFA is my absolute fave but… so many perspectives…)
Next up: Vechs tweeted: “Hey @docm77 I need some content for tomorrow at 6pm EST, can you help me make a neat video?”
And then: “I think I should also get @nebris88 to help make a video too! The more people the better. Nebris, any ideas what content people love?” (edit: that’s the wrong Twitter, Vechs… the REAL Nebris is @cheatynebris)
Later, somebody commented that it would be lucky if Vechs and Nebris were together again, and Nebris replied with “Fate can be so cruel!”
This heavily implies teams of three. Not sure how anybody can beat a Nebris/Doc/Vechs team, but you know…. it’s UHC. Shit happens.
Happy hype everybody!
