Why The Crew is in China

Recommended Posts

Donor

Now, I hate assuming, but let's assume that the map takes place in Shanghai. A quick Google search brings up this image(and many others):

See that large tower on the left? That is the Oriental Pearl Tower, which was the tallest structure in China from 1994-2007 at 468 m (1,535 feet) high. What kind of tower is it?

It is a radio/tv tower.

Perhaps the new side mission in Die Rise is to re-activate this tower and communicate with our fellows on the Moon?

EDIT: Also liked to point out this:

Look how "far east" Shanghai is. ;)

EDIT 2: Also, here's another thing that's worth a mention.

Take a look at one of the towers from the Zhoushan Island Overhead Powerline Tie, located in Damao, China.

Look familiar? It should, because it's literally an electrical pylon. Plus, Damao is further east than Shanghai, sitting on an island.

Here's the quote from Wikipedia.

The Zhoushan Island Overhead Powerline Tie is a 220 kV three phase AC interconnection of the power grid of Zhoushan Island with that of the Chinese mainland. It runs over several islands and consist of several long distance spans, the longest with a length of 2.7 kilometres (1.7 mi) south of Damao Island. This span uses two 370 metres (1,214 ft) tall pylons, which are the tallest electricity pylons in the world. The north tower on Damao Island (大猫岛) was completed in 2009, and the south tower on Liangmao Island (凉帽岛) was completed in 2010. These pylons resemble those of the Messina Strait, but are steel tube lattice structures.

That is a good point!!

Nice theory Flame. I do believe this tower is our next Pylon we will be connecting for either Rictofen or Maxis.

Thanks, and I strongly agree! :D

I believe this tower is the main reason why the Green Run Group are in China.

The only question is, what happens if we're wrong :? What else could the Green Run group be looking for in China/the Far East (movement :P )

"All the tea in China"? ;)

Marlton and his tea...I would laugh if that was actually the EE and on accident they activate the Pylon.

Haha yes! How about an Element 115 tea-bag accidentally powers the tower? :lol:

Would explain why Rictofen and Maxis are so interested in the group. RADIOACTIVE TEABAGS FOR THE WIN!!!! :twisted:

But in all seriousness...I can't wait for this map to come out! :mrgreen:

Yea I pointed this out earlier. When I heard China that tower came to mind. Paris should be next map pack to give us the Eiffel Tower. Then we have a trichotomus system.

Exactly. I silently await our Paris map. :)

Hi this is my first post, but I found something really interesting. When going on google maps to try to find the best route from Hanford, Washington (Green Run) To Shanghai, China (possible Die Rise location). It turns out the route it provided me with went through Hawaii. Remember the quote from T.E.D.D. about going to Hawaii well maybe now it applies to our situation. This could be completely irrelevant but It definitely interesting. (I dont know why it goes through Japan though, I'll leave that to the theorists.)

Here is a screen cap:

Interesting! I wouldn't mind a map in Hawaii...actually, I think I've had my lava fix. :P

I'm not ready to call them 'the crew' yet. It's too soon.

But I do like your theory. I don't have much to add... but I like it. Seems reasonable enough. :lol:

Ha! Would be interesting. Maybe the perks would be in coconuts. And if the map had the O4 Tank could get that girl he's always wanted.

Well we could call them "the crew" just not the "original crew". I tend to call them the new crew anyway.

Possible trichotomous system involving Paris, Hanford and Shanghai.

The north pole is highlighted in pink in somewhat the middle.

Right click the image and open it in a new tab.
