But here is the problem.

Its aimed at the mid to late teen WoW crowd, and its way to subtle for them to understand it.

They would have been better off showing bouncy big breasted skimpy armored female avatars, sparkly effects and shit blowing up.

 

Personally I'd prefer this version over one like that.

I would prefer neither myself. Would have been a lot better off mixing in some cinematic scenes with actual gameplay involving DEs, WvW, sPvP, and even dungeon gameplay much as I heckle it. Plenty available in this game to put together a nice ad without going either route.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

I want an mmorpg where pvp matters, my enemies are not my race or class, and community matters.

9/10/12 9:14:12 PM#182

Well, I'm from the older population of gamers.  We played real mmorpgs in my time, such as Everquest and Dark Age of Camelot.  This here is just a copy past of itself where in pvp you get to fight mirrors of you and your teammates. 

 

Imagine if Tolkien were this limited iin his imagination, and Gandalf, Legolas, Frodo, Aragorn fought Legolas, Frodo, Gandalf and Aragorn?

 

Thankfully, he was not.  This is not epic - this is not even an mmorpg.

To add to this the following:

Trailers always show a portion of something that does happen in the movie, so wtf do game trailers always show shit that don't happen in the game anywhere ? this is mental tbh.

look at this crap http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cy31ClAPRcE

it should be like this one to trully promote what the game is like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyUDIZzvn7A

 

now GW2 example of a proper trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68wCCTPhFE8 all of this does happen in-game.

whenever I see a SWTOR / WOW style trailer for a game I just want to barf, SHOW ME GAME ACTION not some crappy CGI shit that has nothing to do with the game at all.

now true the latest GW2 trailer is not in-game action per se http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4R5Q0ZOTa8 but still at least they don't try to sell you shit that don't happen in-game, and up to now after release I might add, all trailers have been about in-game action.

in short, the days of subcriptions and CGI trailers that don't showcase any in-game action are over.

now after you show me in-game action trailer you have earned the right to release a CGI trailer if you wish.

The fact that you guys equate some not liking this video to them not getting it says a hell of a lot more about you than anyone else.

May want to take the red pill and head there yourself.

Learn to READ did I ever use the word LIKE, I could care less if you like it or NOT I do that's what counts for me.

no red pill option for you take the blue pill and stay inslaved.

Don't listen those drones man, they are still living in their make-believe world, brainwashed and controlled by big corporations and their themeparks. 

 

But not us, we get it. GW2 has finally freed us, no longer will we need to do mundane quests or play by societal rules. No longer will we need to supress our sandbox mentality.  No longer will we feel like some inconsequential, neglibile pixel in a land of make believe. We are part of something bigger now. Our actions will resonate through history and minstrels will write songs about our exploits. No longer will we live in 1984.  We have been unleashed by the GW2 revolution, my friend, and OUR TIME IS NOW.

Hi GW2 forum.

I'm a WoW player who hasn't shown too much interest in this game (although it certainly is pretty to look at), but I thought you might find it interesting that although it didn't show much gameplay, it was likely the best trailer/ad I've seen for the game.  If I didn't know anything at all about the franchise, this would interest me much more than just another gameplay video.  TBH, I can't exactly identify -why- either.  But...it resonates, and it does so well.

For reference, I'm 39, so if it was aimed at much younger players, I'm not certain how well it might go over.  But to me it was quite well done.  I wouldn't be so quick to call for people's heads yet. =)

Glad it worked for you. I don't think anyone is calling for heads to roll over this ad. Just think some think it is weak considering what they had available to use.

Someone was trying a bit too hard with this trailer...

There are 3 types of people in the world.
1.) Those who make things happen
2.) Those who watch things happen
3.) And those who wonder "What the %#*& just happened?!"

I hope the majority of players leaving wow for gw2 are like you :D if not in age at least in mentality, we have a great community in gw2 right now with the ocasional knut mind you, but we'd welcome players with the right mindset like you anytime.

That's pretty extreme man. I bet you feel like breaking out of the chains and setting those corporations and game studios on fire.

Rumor has it that ANET tricked James McTeigue into thinking he was filming a sequel for V for Vendetta.

That is certainly true and begs the question, was this trailer made this way intentionally ?

Seriously, they could've posted this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VN2KRxTdjE with the GW2 logo at the end and people would still think it's good.

Hey Devs, just so you know. The more you give us to play with, the more we play.

9/10/12 10:04:04 PM#196

Okay just so everyone knows. This was a very indirect advertisment for the game. Its purpose was not to show off the game at all.

This was 100% directed at the MMO gamer. This was a "We've heard you, and we've listened." from NCsoft and ArenaNet.

 

 

The person sitting in the chair caked in mud (ahm sh*t) that is the current MMO scene. While some kind of dull action reflects in his nearly lifless eyes. All the while hes reaching out imploringly asking to be saved. (me)

 

Cut to the rebel who chooses the alley instead of the main street, clearly going against the main trend of MMOs, she has to hide her face and who she really is, with the sirens and helicopter sounds implying what she is doing is wrong.

And her tag stating  "Our Time Is Now" we've waited long enough, I dont have to choke on your worlds anymore I can take off this gasmask and breath fresh new air, I dont have to hide who I am, Ive jumped that fence youve put up, Im free.

 

Cut to the masses standing in front of the pit of burning ashes that are all thats left of all these great MMOs we were promised. And one person not afraid to get burned taking the first step.

 

Cut to girl who in the red dress who is the only bright spark of color in a colorless world of MMOs that she swimming thru, a world so watered down in the mundane and the droll that shes drowning in it. But there is hope, a bright light that shes swimming up from the depths towards.

And she exits the water with her eyes wide open into the crystal clear clarity that is GW2, along with three other saved, independent, and brave gamers.

 

Like I said, subtle.

 

 

Edit: Oh and you may say, "But there were four others that exited the water"?

Yeah well, I didnt count the Charr, because obviously someones cat some how crossed over.

I hate manimals...

I don't get the hate, I think it's a pretty good video. o.o The beginning reminds me of the "waiting" for the game (tired, hopeful, sculpture-like people waiting for the MMO saviour, LOL). Then all the people becoming their characters to fight evil. The red color is dominant and appears in the scenes (GW2 logo). I like it! :D

Why are GW2 players looking down on everyone? Especially on WoW crowd?

GW2 is nothing special. It is a *little* different, I'll give you that, which can be understood both ways. Good and bad. You guys are acting like GW2 is the Holy Grail and you were chosen to play it. I mean, it is really getting difficult reading GW2 threads without feeling disquisted by fanbois.

Trailer is implying something out of this world, but that is what they are for. Blow things up out of the proportion and sell the game. Not showing gameplay was a smart move because it would show people what they've already seen everywhere. This way they intrigued the potential customer.

Hey Devs, just so you know. The more you give us to play with, the more we play.

Now see I liked it. I understood it. And it resonated with me. I was that poor crusty person at the beginning.

 

But here is the problem.

Its aimed at the mid to late teen WoW crowd, and its way to subtle for them to understand it.

They would have been better off showing bouncy big breasted skimpy armored female avatars, sparkly effects and shit blowing up.

Truth is, I took a jab a WoW players. Becuase there are a lot more dense players in that game, due mainly because there are more people playing it.

But Im not a WoW hater, dont get me wrong.
