Hey Folks,

just found a tweet from Executive Producer Mike Gamble to a fan who asked if the Mass Relays were destroyed when chosen Control Ending.

Mike Gamble retweetet: Disabled - yes!

Another user answered with a youtube link showing the explosion of the Mass Relay. "You'll need to change that - completely falling apart.

Mike Gamble did not answer further questions, if the relays are also disabled with the other options.

The link to the tweet is here:https://twitter.com/#!/GambleMike/status/189481533239865344

What are they planning? ;) Will there be a new cutscene without relays blowing apart? Why else would he post that on twitter? What do you think?

I'm pretty sure I saw them breaking apart in the endings, though.

Guess we're looking at an EC retcon.

All that shows is that Gamble never actually watched the endings.

Would make more sense if they remained structurally intact thru control option. The scence doesn't show a full explosion like destroy does.

Would also make control a more likely paragon choice as shep sacrifices his/her life to leave the galaxy in a much better state.

And that leads me to a thread I posted here:

http://social.biowar.../index/11210409

That type of ending does not seem fitting for Commander Shepard.

Blowing up is pretty much disabled.

IIRC, in the Control option the destruction of the Relays cuts before the part where we see the rings flying off into space. We just see it begin to break apart instead of completely boom-all. (It's the same animation, but it doesn't play through all the way).

I'm personally excited by this. Yes, it's obvious retcon, but if true, then it suggests that they are going to include some post-crucible content and possibly a way to travel around again...

In the script that was leaked back in November the Control ending was suppose to preserve the Mass Relays, so either Mike is not up to date with Mass Effect 3 or Bioware made a Mistake in the cinematic.

We could really use a more official FAQ instead of having to resort to tweets and paraphrased "interviews" to make sense of the ending, that just adds to the confusion. Although it really looks like they themselves don't even know the answers to our questions yet.

Mmmm, I suppose you could argue that we see the core explode and the tuning fork take damage while the rest is hidden behind a firebal. The main structure could be intact and salvagable. They would be destroyed in the sense that they're broken, but potentially salvagable.

It's a bit weak, but it fits what we see. Just.

edit: in the control you don't even get the fireball, blue sparks come out but nothing major breaks off.

Doesn't matter what the cutscene shows. The starchild said all choices would destroy the Mass Relays.

Everybody knows you can't argue with Starchild. He's always right.

If the relays are not destroyed...why is there a shockwave?

..I'm reminded, for some reason, of the bit in Starship Troopers where a soldier gets a knife shoved through his hand pinning it to a wall. A Sergeant turns around and shouts something about how "this is how you disable someone!"

Hmm.

So we go from the relays detonating as the cinematics show to them being disabled?! Now I'm really confused. In all endings, the relays explode; parts go everywhere.

This aside, the citadel supposedly was destroyed so the control relay is gone. And again according to lore, no one knows how to build a relay in this "cycle". The prothenans got the closest on Ilos and theirs was only a one-way small-scale prototype. I really want to seee them pull this one off.

Actually, you clearly can see in the Destroy ending mass relay blows up.I don't see the same in control.
Just watch. Time right on explosion.
Control "Explosion"
Destroy Explosion
So.. does this mean control is "good" option?
Sh*t, this is even worse. (for me at least). 
:crying:
