Perhaps this company does not understand the power of hype.  They really should be "teasing" perspective customers more than they are at the moment.

well the game has been delayed until Q4, i think if they start thehype in the last 2 months before release it'll be more effective and to be honest in the last 2 months i've seen several articles of the game on several websites :)

I like the fact they are not hyping the game early. It's usually a bad omen when companies do.

I think it's bigger than that they don't understand it. Originally, and for a long time, this game was supposed to release in 2006. Even while in 2006 they were planning to release in 2006.

Alot of information got dumped into the media then. There were class profiles here at MMORPG, dev interviews, trailers and whatever else. When a game gets delayed like TCoS multiple times, I think the hype gets spread over a long period of time. The strategy changes, and instead of building up in a crescendo toward release, the game just kind of fizzles along, dropping info here and there.

I think TCoS team is dedicated to releasing a bug free product, and that's good, but the downside is the marketing can suffer.

Don't underestimate the power of word-of-mouth in situations like this. Even while having next to no marketing, Spellborn has managed to spend quite a bit of time on the top of the Hype Meter on this site. The game sells itself, and people who are interested in the game get other people interested. I know that I got more than a few people looking forward to this game. Since it's a small company, they don't have as much money as the huge coperations to market their game, so they use word-of-mouth instead. It's free, and, as we've proven by being here,  talking about the subject, quite effective. I believe they will begin a marketing push once they think that they're ready to release the game, so expect to see alot more about this game around open beta time.

Word of mouth and a perfect open beta stage and you've got more hype, player created, than you can ever want. For me a good word from another player weights a thousand times more than any cool ads or cool words the developers can come up with.

Hype did an amazing job for Vanguard, D&L and DDO. Am I right?

QFT. Hype can help cause the death of a game ( Vanguard being a prime example), just as quickly as it can build it up.

Assuming there's something to actually hype...

Played so far: 9Dragons, AO, AC, AC2, CoX, DAoC, DF, DnL, DR, DDO, Ent, EvE, EQ, EQ2, FoMK, FFO, Fury, GW, HG:L, HZ, L1, L2, M59, MU, NC1, NC2, PS, PT, R:O, RF:O, RYL, Ryzom, SL, SB, SW:G, TR, TCoS, MX:O, UO, VG, WAR, WoW...
It all sucked.

WAR has been hyping and giving players more info than any game to date during its construction, and most players love it.

Remember Darkfall? They didnt hype or test their game enough and look where its at now..

WAR is being backed by not only Mythic's gigantic pile of wealth, but also EA's, thusly they have more resources to spend on hyping up a game. The people working on Spellborn don't have the excess resources to do this, so they're focusing on actually making a good game instead of trying to market it. Also, don't compare Spellborn to Darkfall. Spellborn recently finished it's third closed beta and will like be going into it's fourth closed beta or open beta over the summer. Darkfall, at this point, is simply a wonderful promise and a few scattered videos and screenshots. In any event, my point is that it's better for them to make a good game that ends up selling itself then creating some all consuming marketing illusion like some other games. However, I would wager that once they get closer to release, we'll see alot more advertising about this game.

The problem with all the hype that Warhammer is getting though, is that it most likely won't live up to it. The expectations for Warhammer are very high and they will get slammed if they aren't met.

When you uncover a gem of a game that releases with moderate hype however, you are excited and tend to be more forgiving of minor issues. Then word of mouth will spread of it's quality, which is much better in the long run, and less expensive.

Hypes attract a different "type" of players .... people that are sensitive to hypes, are also the ones that leave as fast as they joined ... and dehype

The ones that joined because they informed them selves thouroughly, or were informed by others from their experiences with this game are more lickely to stick.

The higher the hype the more stress will be on the developers as the expectations rise exponential with the hype. As long as the developers can handle the higher hype then they should go for it. But if they build it up to high you get the scenarios like DnL, Vanguard, ...

Well, if anyone is looking to spread hype themselves, someone made a Facebook group.
