Started a group for alternate timeline discussion, because I have a feeling a lot of people aren't going to talk about it in the Theories section. Join if you want.
@Spiritual Mask Salesman Just because it doesn't have Ganon/a sign of Ganon doesn't mean that he hasn't existed yet. He could very well have. Also, wasn't Hyrule
@Seth But it doesn't show the formation of Hyrule. Hyrule was formed before that game, and probably directly after SS, as they needed some sort of governing body. Just sayin'.
Did you mean the “great war?” The imprisoning war was the war spoken of prior to Skyward Sword, I'm not sure if you accidently wrote it, but meant the “Great war” the one prior to OoT?
As there's no mention of him in the game, I don't think we could accurately place it based on him. He could very well be yet-unborn, but who knows?Maybe, but what I meant was that it happened prior to his conquest to get controld of Hyrule, if anything he was maybe a child, but honestly I don't think he was born yet during MC and FS.
Huh? Since when was the imprisoning war confirmed as the war before SS? In the old ALttP manual, the sealing war was originally referred to as the "imprisoning war". How is the sealing war/imprisoning war before SS? And where the heck did this "great war" thing come from? I'm confused.
Edit: Wow, I just checked HH again, and I found out the war before ALttP is actually still called the "imprisoning war". Proof:
Well damn. I always thought the war with Hylia and Demise prior to SS was called the “imprisoning war” as well since she ended up imprisoning Demise in the sealed pit with the sealing spike. In OoT the Hylian cival war thing is called “the great war” which happened before OoT. I guess I got my wars confused and thought you were talking about the one before OoT, not after OoT leading into ALttP.
EDIT: after looking into it there is no name of the war with Demise and Hylia which happened prior to SS. The “great war” I keep talking about seems to be called the Hylian Unification war on the HH timeline I could have sworn though that in OoT they called this unification war the “great war” I can't remember though! I really need to play OoT again I haven't played it in like a year, maybe longer.
People just hate the Downfall Timeline, and the placements of OoX and MC have always been sore subjects for the community.I never have understood just why a timeline is such a source of agonizing pain for so many people. Why not just accept it and do on with life?
I thought it was a clever method of resolving the whole WW retconning ALTTP while adding in the whole triple method the series is known for.
I don't think it is stupid, in ways it was a bittersweet relief. I was glad that there was finally a official timeline, but I was sad when I began to notice that people considered theorising dead, which is crazy.
