Re: HotS is not canon

In Response To: HotS is not canon (Cody Miller)

: Interesting post on TeamLiquid about the storyline to Starcraft 2 - Heart
: of the Swarm. While I have come to generally not care, and in some cases
: embrace retconing facts, what is described here is something that you
: CAN'T retcon, and that's character personality and motivations.

: Since the characters are what people are connected and invest in, if you
: retcon them, then you end up with an emotional disconnect. Nobody should
: be emotionally connected to a random fact or tidbit about a universe, but
: everybody should be connected to the characters.

: Spoilers in the link obviously.

As long as they keep making sequels this type of stuff will continue to happen. The more "source" material that exists, the more writers involved, the more this will happen.
