I agree that they really didn't give a good explanation. There's a difference between letting players figure out something for themselves, and just leaving information out expecting them to know as if they beta tested. Wiping because of something that was a surprise is fine, but when you wipe because the game doesn't give you instructions is something else. The game has a good built in method of giving players instructions, the codex system. It's like they just assumed that people would know what to do, or they didn't want to give instructions to add difficulty to it, but that's not the kind of difficulty you want to add.

I don't want to get off topic, but I didn't really expect to get much instruction. The game itself doesn't really explain everything. You're left to figure out many things yourself. Like I said it's not a bad thing to let players figure stuff out, but in some places it just comes off as lazy by not giving instructions.
