    I used to until Galactus/Galan arrived. Then I lost interest for some reason

    Always read them. As @Pikolu said, I play the game for the story and look forward to the plot development.

    But in my view, this month was dire. The writing to me at least, brought across uninspiring, annoying character personalities, propped up by slating established, marquee characters. They did the same with misty Knight's writing.

    The contrast with, say, the writing for black cat EQ, was stark. She came across as a loveable rogue, that I wanted to play.

    We've come to expect snide comments and air of superiority from Emma, as a protagonist villan or any of the mercs. Or even that tragic, misguided megalomaniac, like spot or titania.

    But I did not like it at all, in the people supposedly on your side. Even to the point, that it makes me not want to pull, or play them.

    Heros should be written with stoicism, sacrifice, flaws, overcoming the odds. Not as arrogant twasoks. That's supposed to be the bad guys.

    I usually do but sometimes there’s too much dialogue that it gets boring. This one I felt had too much at times

    I used to and liked them too.
    But then EQ got very grindy and some day I stopped reading.

    The game is time consuming enough as is.

    Kabam spends more time on developing the dialogue than fixing the game.

    Way to go

    I felt repetitive every month, few words and character changes, Quest bosses on dark side, defeat them comes to light side.

    writing team is one of the only consistent teams left- the storyline is good every month.

    When I was a new player, I read every word, the more I have played the less I read and now I just skip everything. I actually feel kinda bad doing it too because I know there is some good work that goes into authoring all that content it's just a QoL thing for me / personal choice.

    I read just couple lines to understand the basic plot these days. I stopped paying attention once I realised, that they all follow the same basic design

    New character origin: Pulled into Battlerealm recently OR Has been hiding until now

    We fight the new character. Why?
    Villain - they have some evil plot that needs to be stopped
    Hero - lost their senses/were manipulated OR just some combat practise

    I remember there being some really great storylines a few years ago around the introduction of Immortal Hulk / Abomination as well as Spider-Ham. I started a thread about it and a mod mentioned that the Hulk / iBom storyline was written by Al Ewing :o

    Never once read a single word.

    Maybe I should start though - recommended for the EQ quests?

    I always mean to read it but I rarely do. Sometimes it's pretty good. Deadpoolooza was going on when I started playing and it's one of the reasons I kept playing. Loved when Venompool was created and found himself conflicted between the desire to kill the Spider-Man and the desire to eat nachos. Sometimes it's brutal like anytime Morningstar speaks. These days I skip it most of the time.

    Disagree with me all you want, but this is a game based at least partially on comic book characters and their stories/backgrounds. Skipping the dialogue is basically the same as looking at the illustrations of a comic book but not reading any of the speech bubbles. You invariably miss out on lots of information. If you don't care, then that's cool... I read all the dialogue so I can understand what the state of the Battlerealm is. It's not like it's freakin' A Tale of Two Cities, folks, it takes such little time to read.

    Used to read them. Now I am uninterested. There's never any cutscenes anymore and supposedly Galactus was tearing apart the battlerealm for the last year but you'd never know.

    A closer analogy would be buying a TV and reading the 50 page manual. Fact is, the story is completely irrelevant for the gameplay. There's no choice we have to make that is rooted in any info contained in the story.

    Personally, I found the whole concept of summoner and the Battlerealm extremely cheesy and wedged it to fit the actual game when I started playing years ago. Maybe it has improved, maybe it hasn't, but back then was nowhere near comic book quality.
