I've looked over the forums and couldn't find a post about this. The fresher, more detailed Hale model and animations are sexy, the plague doctor is a lovely concept and a pretty fun new dimension to play imo, and *you get to pick your own boss*. I'm sure a lot of people, myself included, would have a lot of fun with a more up-to-date version. With the new hale model, I feel it's more than aesthetically cool. Since thePFA's model (the one used in v1.55) doesn't have custom animations and consequently borrows them from the soldier, a lot of times people confuse airborne trollgiers for Hale and will have a harder time seeing the real deal actually leaping over to them (especially on trollgier-rich maps like military_area and urban_works). I don't have much factual, non-opinionated stuff to say about the plague doctor lol. I mean, I really like it and find that people enjoy the new juggernaut-zombie survival cross breed gameplay this guy brings on the other servers I've played it on. Lastly, about the fact that you can pick your boss... In the current version (v1.55), some people in-game have a nasty habit of leaving the server whenever they're up to bat as Hale and they get a boss they don't like, shoving the next person in queue to play an oftentimes cruddy hale for whatever map they are on (like, say, HHH on dust_showdown or hakurei); it leaves your ability to perform well up to chance and can be really unfun as a consequence. I'd really like to see Skial upgrade to the sleek, obvious upgrade that is VSH2.0+. Multiple other popular VSH servers (such as DISC-FF) have made the change long ago and still seem to be kicking quite well. Thanks!
