Magic presentation in this show is so bad, even at the final battle. Yennifer is the strongest sorceress in the world and what have she done the entire show? Summoning portals to run plus breathing fire at the end (which was nearly killed her). Triss, who can summon meteors from the sky in the game, reduced to controlling trees lol. All those mages who have enough power to destroy the entire continent, decided to engage in sword fights and get killed by a common soldiers? Come on.

I think Netflix didn't invest enough on special effects.
The best video game is the one that hasn't released yet

The final episode was kinda boring but it had its moments. The whole series together was a 9/10. I can't wait for season 2

Yennefer is absolutly not the strongest Mage or even Sorceress, did you read the books?

And you realize that that many mages actually died at that battle? Yeah the battle was misrepresented but I'm sure they didn't have the budget or coordination for a massive large scale battle that it should have been.

The show is a bit of a let down but this was hardly the biggest issue.

lol they didn't base it on the games buddy.
The show isn't a letdown, apparently people expected it to change their lives but it's just an entertaining show. My god what a burden.

First off it is WAY close to the books representation of the world then the TV show. The game got magic right while the TV show is total bulls***. You don't kill things to caste magic. You find a source. Frangilla was never taught at Aratuza, no person was ever turned into an eel for their life force and Yennefer never had to sacrific her ovaries to get her back fixed. In fact they fixed it at the end of her first year of studies while she was a student.

Plus Yennefer is NOT the most powerful. Phillipa is way more powerful. Frangilla blinds Yennefer at Sodden Hill and the most powerful mage is actually Vilgefortz. this is NOT nitpicking. These are major changes to the lore.

They could have made Luke Skywalker appear and you would have been fine with it. You've already indicated that no matter what they change you never would have any problems. I think you once said you wouldn't have an issue if Ciri was black. To be fair that might not have been you but it was around a year ago when people thought that Ciri was going to be a person of color.

Point out one place where I said no one can enjoy the show. You sure do love to project.

All I've done is pointed out the major differences in the show and how they changed the lore, wrecked in in my opinion, but changed it none the less.

As I said elsewhere not once have you said that what I wrote is factually wrong because you know it's factually correct.
