    Nice artwork and concept.
    Chainlink? I guess it's universal.
    Looks to be armored, not an organic morph.
    I'm taking that EM-8ER is a frozen planet.
    Seems to be a take on the Arana. "We’ve seen some in chains and some kind of holographic tagging or restraints". This could be interesting.
    And the Enshigi* seem to be some sort of Galactic Enforcer. How dare they hold us hostage and tell us how or where we can go. Kill'em all I say.

    Its pronounced sort of like She-Who...but its more complex than that. I'll see if I can get a recording made. Its not an easy to pronounce language.

    The Enshigi are cold hearted bastards.

    Is the big thing a ride for the little guy or are those two the same guy in a different shape?

    Cool artwork btw. YAY to this one!

    Those are the two forms they shapeshift between.

    I'm still on the fence about the M.E.K. itself, but you damn nailed that alien.

    Maaaybe there could be even more? I already made a thread throwing that idea out there. Making them be able to morph into different form would make them versatile and would allow them to adept to different omni-frames, even more so if they'd travel in groups where every individual member could essentially alternate between forms to fulfill different roles, depending on the situation.

    I like the concept, though I feel like it might be a bit too OP if the AI can simply switch to whatever form best defeats its target. Perhaps all of the Tsihu could have the same humanoid shape, but could transform into a single alternate type, scatter different types into every group. Then if they call for reinforcements that is when they would focus on specific alternate types that combat the players optimally. It would be a bit more organic perhaps?

    Or that. :)

    I really just want more enemies that could essentially function more like the players and their frames and adept to them to make us work for that victory. There wasn't much of that in FF, really. And all enemies, even flying ones, were pretty much grounded, that made their wings useless. easy to deal with, when they couldn't fly up to our face.

    Looks utterly awesome! I just hope they will be as badass as Closed Beta Chosen. Both in lore and gameplay. ;)

    Is it a male or female i cant quite tell hmmm

    Simply because they are humanoid does not mean they are mammalian, they could reproduce via budding...

    EDIT: Though in my own personal opinion a sort of hive state with a king queen and a ton of genderless drones would make the most sense in order to have the never ending horde numbers required to make an MMO enemy realistic...

    Um...if you are referring to the actual picture I am 99.999% certain that Mark did not just post a rated R artwork of our new enemies, I think that is a buckle or other ornamentation.
