So much confusion on what "hype" means and its relation to different forms of promotion...

HAHA Hype? Truth be told I only tried this game cause a friend in closed beta sorted me out a key that I mmm'd and ah'd over even actually inputting.  It was way under my radar and was not building any type of hype in my mind.

OP you are barking up the wrong tree in fact you have gone past the tree's and are in the ocean, unless you are mistaking hype for post launch advertising.  In fact pre-launch hype I don't think I even saw one advert.

SWTOR to me was hyped and was/is a cursed fail clone of wow with lightsabers. GW2 has been hyped up the WAZOO.  TSW? In fact if I talk to my friends and they say hey mack what ya playin and I say TSW they have gone TS what.

So, here I am reading through this set of posts.....

Couple of points:

Several posters have brought up the fact that any MMO will need to produce some hype at launch, duh.

As I have yet to see any ads on TV about TSW I do NOT think they have a huge ad budget, RIFT, WOW, SWTOR all had TV ads.

A poster mentioned that most of the ads you see on the internet are connected to what YOU browse, cookies are nasty little bastards and track more info than I like to admitt. An afternoon of checking out TSW could result in you mostly seeing TSW adds.

[mod edit]

 

Look TSW is THE triple A launch of the moment. There is going to by hype, from MMO news sites, like this one, players and yes the publisher. TSWs rather quiet launch smacks of a lower amount of hype. In addition to the fact that even though it is a themepark, the setting and base mechanics of TSW are different than basicly most of all the offerings out there, which in and of it self could generate hype.

Just wait till GW2 gets closer, it will be all you see.

I agree not a single person I know that games IRL heard of this game till I started talking about it to them a month ago

I wont beat the  dead horse here since the OP seems to not know what hype is.  I can explain why hes seeing TSW ads everywhere he goes:

You keep posting on the TSW forums...your browser knows...

 

Its not rocket surgery...

 

Lay off the TSW forums and TSW ads elsewhere will lay off you...

Guess I was wrong, I havn't watched TV for a long time so was unaware of commercials.  I took the advertisement on the screen to mean it had commercials.

My browser clears cookies all the time, I only sign in to post then sign out then clear, I hate cookies as they used to have scripts in them. Paranoid.

Nice try at editing this out, but do you really think you can keep the Illuminati from finding you?  And you think it's just a game eh?

It's not paranoia if someone really is watching you.

Never seen such a hyped game in my short 35 year life.

Stay on topic, please. this is about hype and advertising budget.

edit 0: as lizard pointed, i meant MMO as there are advertisements in all sorts of places compared to swtor or other MMOs, not on TV yet though, but as many in other areas. This is about advertisements, not fan/hater players pr grass roots.

edit1: Tera got put on blast for to many adds but, I see TSW on every website. I am aware there are more GW2 and WoW fans, this isn't about fans. This is about TSW advertisements being everywhere.

Honestly I don't think you can tell the difference between positive, viral word of mouth (a difficult task for any mmo after launch) and hype (pretty much a prep rally before a mmo's release). Think of it this way. You have three high schools getting ready to play a big game...

 

  • SWTOR
  • TSW
  • GW2
SWTOR has a HUGE and I mean HUGE expensive ass rally that not only encompasses the high school but the whole damn city itself months before a big game against TSW and ends up losing by 1 point. How dissapointed would you be? Now imagine that they had a corporation backing them financially. Do you think that corporation would consider that investment a positive or negative effect on their image?
 
TSW is the team that beat SWTOR to advance to the championship, but was NOT a well known team nor did it come from a big city. Just a small town who had a rally at the high school a week before the big game and won! All of a sudden the positive outcome starts to encompass the whole town as people are getting excited about how well the team has done. Are they expecting to beat GW2 (heavily favored by the whole friggin state to win)? I think not. But that still won't stop people from talking about their cinderella story.
 
Then you have GW2. A team who has a legacy of winning and people from all cities, towns and villages across the whole state supports them. The rally is covered on the freakin local news and you see people walking around with GW2 t-shirts, hats and having their own GW2 parties on a weekly bases..
 
 
Now which team do you think is being hyped the most.....

This game has been over-marketed by EA but the game itself was not overhyped by funcom..

GW2 has been under-marketed thusfar by ncsoft yet heavily player word of mouth hyped because we love anet..

+1 for both anet and funcom..

-1 for both ncsoft and EA..

Playing GW2..

Which game developer released the mmo manifesto again?

You haven't been paying enough attention to GW2 if you think this is the most hyped game ever.

This is exactly my impression.

 

To be honest, hype has a lot to do with the individual.  Ever notice how when you buy a new car, EVERYONE seems to have one?  Well, I can tell you that your purchase of said automobile had very little to do with the other people purchasing them.  Rather, you are now noticing those cars more like that damn zit on your forehead that appears to grow to encompass your whole face the more you look at it.  I definitely got into the SWTOR hype and was burned terribly.  I avoided that with TSW, despite having followed the game for the past few years.  I think this has contributed to my enjoyment of the game at this point.  I'm able to causally explore the world, taking my time, and not caring if I have to wait an hour or two to finish a quest because my phase is bugged.  I just don't care, I love every second I'm playing the game.

I'm glad they advertised as much as they did.  I have a lot of gaming friends who still have never heard of the game, despite them being big fans of this genre (mmos, horror, consipiracy, fringe science).  This game will likely have a niche fanbase after the "speed levelers" and "easy mode" gamers fall away, and from what I can tell, the community is perfectly fine with this. Advertising hype or no.

I disagree, GW2 had far more hype.

Was the OP living in a hole when SWTOR released?  Do you know how much the SWTOR TV adverts must have cost?

If they own it, it doesn´t mean that they are the same company. Just like Warner.Bros and all the studios it is owning right now!

 

When it comes to the '' hype '', well, not really. If you have ever seen '' Star Wars hype '' you would have prob known what I mean. The game got its hype '' after '' the release, which is kinda natural. However, compared to SW/GW2 hype, it is still not that much. Some of the most hyped games ever: SW, GW2 and D3. WoW is always hyped however, the expansio hype can´t really reach a new game´s, so prob can´t compare to the ones I already mentioned.

Thank you!  Aside from the obvious flaw of the OP using the H word again, vapor is still vapor as an argument, apparently someone wasn't paying attention because SWTOR's ads were even on television before the game launched and every site but one gave it flying colors despite evidence to the contrary in an endless artcile barage during the final stages of SWTOR's beta. Dunno about you Sevenwind (tho i think you'll agree) but i have yet to see a single TSW tv ad nor have i seen tenmillion videos on youtube about any and every bit of footage or an equal number of articles on websites like these giving it a 9/10. Hype ? Hardly LOL

When you think about it the way the op mentions it. The is a TON of promotion for this game in many different websites. Still it doesn't seem overwhelming.
