Negan - Hero?

Why on earth is Negan a Hero?
In comic, on show he is all Villain. Maybe make a villain walker of him instead and I can put him in my pit where he belongs.

    Because he is less annoying than some (if not most) of the people on the show, including all the heroes we have available, especially Rick, at this point?

    What @Tombworld said.

    In any case, Negan is a wildly popular character, regardless of being a bad guy.

    Rufus isn't even anywhere on the show, or comic, or anywhere else in TWD universe, but still he's a "hero".

    I like Negan even if he's a villain since he's not sneaky and he honors courage of people just like Yakuza or Mafia. But that's just my personal opinion.

    Just stick him in your outpost and forget about him. Other people will bash his head in for you while giving you back somebody you can put to use.

    Please let me be able to delete him or at least hide/ignore him. I don't care how many people think he is cool. I DON'T WANT HIM! Don't tell me to suck it up and put him in my outpost or not unlock him. If I don't unlock him the game will keep trying to shove him down my throat with the "NEW" button and placing him at the top of my peeps list. I don't want to see him. Ever!!! I know that there are plenty of others who don't like him, even if not to the same extent as me. It's bad customer service to not accommodate your customers.

    Hi! One of my favorite character in the show, but I choosed to not let him in my gates. However he keeps knocking on the door and saying "Little, little Pig, let me in." Now carefully trying to avoid the unlock button that keeps coming up while living in fear. Think I know now how people in Alexandria feel ;)

    Need I state the obvious: this game is about The Walking Dead, and Negan is one of THE main characters in that show (both on TV and in the original graphic novel).

    Furthermore, keep it decent in here.

    Maybe we should get The Governor and Gareth from Terminus, and then we could have an all villain team! Perfect for fighting Freemen... :naughty:

    I would love to have Meryl on my team. He would be both a scout with one hand and a shooter with the other. That would be cool.

    @MadPuppy

    I'm a fan of the of the show. And I'm aware of Negans position as a character in the story. But that doesn't justify the fact that he's practically 'forced' into my team (and again, as stated before by others, don't tell me to just toss him into my outpost and stop caring). Don't get me wrong, on a level of character complexity he's of a high level standard in the TWD universe. Perhaps even the 'hero' qualitification he's been give in the game.

    But this hero is not allround fan-friendly. It's one thing to watch a character abuse the main cast and his 'wives' on screen, it's another thing to have this kind of person fighting for you in game. He should be an option, not mandatory. (Because I am sure lots of people love his character and should be able to use him).

    I woud really like the option to toss heroes I do not want for tokens (in general, but especially for Negan). Or at least just have him under my hero-tab and not in my lovely Bruiser section.

    EDIT: Did NG even consider this character to come with a trigger warning?

    Honestly, wasn't this even considerd as a concern? How is no one of NG even actually explaining this?

    Edit: Politics.

    Excuses me, I don't want to take this to the next level. But seemingly few people at the forums don't seem to mind this? Or are Afraid to speak out because this is a well build character from a writers perspective

    Fun fact: Negan has never been portrayed on the show as a rapist. Sexually agressive, manipulative, conniving mean angry asshole. But not rapist. There is a difference. He seems to make a point a couple times in the season about consent.

    Equating the results of the US presidential election with the introduction of a character in this game is really reaching, imo.

    Politics has nothing to do with this, and that stays off this forum @GreySeer

    The fact that you don't get a lot of support on this topic should tell you that apparently most people really are ok with one of THE most popular and central figures of the show being in the game. No one forces you to use him, and as long as the TV show doesn't come with a specific "Negan is evil" warning, I don't see any reason why the game should be any different.

    Whatever you mean with "taking it to the next level", please do keep it civil. Unlike in the game or the TV show, here on the forum we prefer people don't shoot each others' brains out over a disagreement.

    It's civil when people have an option to disagree.

    I suggest a simple title change for the main show characters from Hero to something else. I don't want Negan's character out of the game, it's integral to the story. How about being able to choose factions? I.e let people use a squad from the "dark side" or the "hero" side when the choose to. I just think using the label of hero for the Negan character is incorrect. I don't think the creative mind behind the source material consider him a hero.

    If you don't want to use Negan, then don't use him. Why make such an issue out if it? He's in the show, he's in the game and he'll not be leaving the game no matter how many people don't think he's a hero.

    Guys, I think this thread has got way out of hand. As stated earlier 'Hero' is a term to identify characters from the show, not an endorsement of their actions. Maybe they could change the title to 'Leader' or just 'Character' but it's a nice inclusion to have people from the show in the game.

    For those players who really don't like Negan or perhaps other 'Heroes' the option to delete them would be a nice addition.

    And that's the bottom line, cause NG said so.

    I find the fact this actually bothers people highly amusing. I'm more bothered by the fact he just isn't very useful in game, but this makes it all worth it.
  • CelerysteveCelerysteve Member Posts: 56
    And Negan never coerced sex with the threat of physical violence. It's amazing how people will do mental gymnastics just to make a non-related issue into a soapbox about them and their problems. Got to love this decade of sanctimony and social media. Trigger warning!

    This is a subject that is of importance to people, let's keep it civil.

    Also, from an NG standpoint, the ability to retire heroes is _very_ unlikely to be added. As all of you know, retired survivors are gone forever, meaning they can't be brought back by support, myself or even Shteevie. That being said, imagine the amount of accidentally retired heroes if there was a button to push.
