I mean let's face it, this is a hunting game that strives to be realistic. Having werewolves permanently on display somewhat negates that statement, no?
That is exactly what I said to someone else the other day. I would never have signed up if I had found these werewolves. That includes the trophy lodges. It makes the game a semi-realistic, semi-mythical one that I wouldn't care about. EW has gone too far with the lodge and the leaderboards and will have to make a tough decision to which degree this can be reverted. Either way they are going to alienate someone. Either those who invested time and money to have that creature in screenshots, lodges and leaderboards, or those who will find its appearance killing the "most realistic hunting game" message.
