Every single game that has ever had any media attention--by talking to developers during its creation--has promised things that are impossible, or that are not in the finished product. Welcome to the world of hype.
then they shouldnt have promised us that in the first place.
They said dragon encounters are unique, and went on to explain that the majority of dragons you'll encounter are random, not scripted events.
whats the point you are trying to make because you are missing the topic by a mile, or dont know what random and unique means
Random things are unique from instance to instance. It wasn't a promise that they failed to keep. It was a promise they fulfilled on a technicality. Dragons are random and have complex AI based on where they are. If you ever have two dragon fights that are very similar, it is because you know enough about the the game to have a character that can take control away from the AI that the devs created.
