I want to fight! by Ktr-Liane07 I want to fight! by Ktr-Liane07
Does a hero wait to die in a hospital refusing a better treatment while the galaxy is being torn apart? Is that the concept of Thane Krios that you had in ME2? My Thane, my lover, my friend from ME2 wouldn't have left me, his son and the galaxy without doing everything that he could. When he said that he wanted to die he didn't know that the reapers were about to come or that he could made up with his son or fall in love again.
In ME2 it's stated that he's a viable candidate for transplant and that there is a new special medigel for the lungs but still he didn't do anything! I didn't even had the chance to convince him to do it, not even when I romanced him that he literally said that he was afraid of death.

If you agree that Thane was more than his illness and that there should have been an option to save him, like every other character, join our Protest Campaign #SaveThane to ask BioWare for this option. It's very simple (choose one or all of them ;) ):

- Like us on Facebook: [link]
- Follow us on Twitter: @savethane [link]
- Join us on Tumblr: [link]
- Join us on deviantArt: #savethane [link]

BioWare will only listen to us if we have enough supporters, so join us and spread the word! :D

*And for the ones who like Thane's story as it is remember this: we just want an option, we don't want to change your game or your story, you can still support us even if you don't want to save him but think it's fair that others do.

Bioware needs to understand you don't kill off a Great character like Thane just because he has an illness....that is so low with what they did! Thane deserves an option to be saved!

I have only played the game once ( it might be the last) and I couldn't watch Thane die so I ignored him! If Bioware doesn't give us an option to save him in a future DLC they can kiss this customer goodbye!

Awesome job btw! ^_^

Thanks! ^^^

They'd better do something, not just for us but for the sake of the story and the game. How can you tell your costumers "oops, sorry, we forgot him". Really? the green guy in the ME2 game cover? the one who was character of the year 2010? the cool guy that 50% of the people or more have always in their squad?... but you didn't forget Miranda's ass didn't you?

No I guess they did'nt forget Miranda's ass at all...I guess that was more important,including Edi's cameltoe and let's not forget the banshees tits!

Anyways I never felt so betrayed by a game company ...ever...and I'm darn happy to be one the Thane fans who are fighting for an option to save him! Let's keep fighting girls..and bros!

How is it that a dying man with a son and a lover deciding to seek treatment = unrealistic and triviliasing, but resurrecting Shepard aka basically curing death = totally believable? Ugh. I'm in full support of the For An Option campaign and I would be even if my main Shepard didn't romance him. Character assassination like that drives me insane.

Thank you so much :) His story is so badly written in ME3 that they should fix it without asking fans to complain and make groups like crazy, just for professionalism.

Yes, I agree. I do not understand how they looked at this writing and thought it was good. I can understand why people like it from a friend-Shepard perspective, but from a romanced one? He's a completely different person. His character arc doesn't make sense. What happened to I Will Fight By Your Side Until I Cannot? What happened to I Am Scared Of Dying And It Shames me?

It's fairly evident they had no idea what other reason they could give for him not rejoining the Normandy... because let's face it, the Thane we know and love would not have let Shepard fight alone.

It's very poor writing... and when the fans first complained they admitted that "they dropped the ball". How can you say to your costumers that you screwed up and then not fix it until "enough" people complain! you messed up, fix it! it's your job! they pay you for doing that and nobody pays me for spending hours spreading campaigns to get people to complain... they better fix it...

If admitting you dropped the ball isn't saying you know it's crap, I don't know what is.

If for no other reason, something needs to be done about Thane's (and Jacob's) romances to even out the ridiculous male/female Shepard LIs ratio. I'm sure you know all this already, but Dudeshep gets nine choices: Ash, Miranda, Liara, Jack, Tali, Allers, and Kelly as straight options and Kaidan and Cortez as s/s options.... while femshep gets only six - Garrus and Kaidan, and Liara, Kelly, Traynor and Allers. Since Garrus can be locked out by not romancing him in ME2, and Kaidan can die in ME1, it's entirely possible to not have a single male LI option.


So much for more equality for femshep, huh? The really stupid thing is they could easily fix that by fixing Jacob and Thane, and by letting femshep AND dudeshep romance both Virmire Survivors. Suddenly Femshep would have nine options too...

Well, it'd be nearly equal anyway. Femshep would still be skewed in favour of a gay shepard (five femaleoptions if we count Ash, four male options counting Jacob and Thane), while dudeshep's options lean heavily to straight (7-2)... don't get me wrong, I am not in any way angry about the inclusion of s/s romance options - I think it's great that game companies are finally realising that they're not only selling to straight men.

But that's just it, isn't it? They're NOT only selling to straight men. And for us straight ladies who don't like Kaidan and didn't romance Garrus? Well.

Besides. Call me cynical but the four female options to two male options whichmaynotevenbeavailableatall for femshep seems to scream "dudebro's lesbian fantasy" to me.

Bah. TL;DR, sorry!

I totally agree with you. It's not just that they forgot about their female players but also about their own image. C'mon... barly male romances for FemShep, horny shower lesbian scene, 4 lesbian options,... if when they talk about equality for homosexuals they mean lots of hot chicks for DudeShep and FemShep they are doing something worse than if all the options were straight. And if that's not what they meant to do it's what it looks like, so they'd better fix it.

Yes, exactly!

I don't for one moment begrudge the people that like those options or wanted those options. I just question Bioware's intentions by having, out of the entire cast of 11 romance options, only three male ones.

That, to me, reads very much like 'hey boys look at all these hot babes for you to bang! and look, lesbians!!' Ugh. That IS worse but not actually surprising considering Bioware's idea of equality for Femshep and female players is to have her grovelling to Kaidan, prancing about in lacey butt-windowed underwear and sexing up every female character they can find.

Thane is awesome, he's much more than his illness! I like him like character, because he knows who he killed and for that near the end he wanted to make up for his mistakes...
But i don't understand one thing: "new special medigel for the lungs"
i romanced Thane in ME2 but i didn't hear of this... am i missing something?

yeah, the medigel for the lungs was named in the CDN (Cerberus Daily News). You can find it here [link] under 07/13/2010 - Eupulmos Device Helping Victims of Respiratory Diseases.

Thanks for your support! :D
