I doubt it's Carbine, but if it is, this is truly a new low for advertising everywhere lol.

Chances of anyone at Carbine doing this are next to zero.

This kind of behavior would be subject to immediate termination at any reputable game company.

I like Sylent Assassin's comments.  He's a bit upset.

Remember when people said ESO would have 10 million subs? Or was that 20 million?  DOUBLE LOL

Although I agree with that chat in the screen shot about him being a f**king idiot - who would pay to effectively beta test ESO on PC right now?

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

I'd wager closer to 80k subs in 10 months.

 

Wildstar is just to niche of a game with no known IP to back it up.  I predict Rift like numbers for it.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

NCsoft has a vicious marketing department. Ask TSW.

If it is carbine their marketing department sucks.  Advertising breaking 18 million subs in the first year only invites ridicule not interest.  I'm guessing it's a troll, particularly with those TM marks trying to stir up the ESO fans, and by all appearances he was quite successful.

I think it will do better than Rift tbh. Rift was very generic and that alone brought the game down by quite a bit. At least Wildstar is trying to give itself its own "feeling" rather than some generic fantasy.

Yes, his absence from ESO forum is noticable, maybe he got new job on WS, now when ESO has launched ;)

Good... it restores my faith in the universe to know NCsoft's marketing department operates like L2 PvP.

It is blatant trolling done by players of ESO in chat. They bait people into thinking things by saying obnoxious things like that. They are saying it's the wow killer with the 10 million sub thing, which when I was in zone chat in ESO there was quite a few WOW WAS THE FIRST MMO comments so I wouldn't be surprised to see this being a new troll attempt.

I don't like spam in general chat but if I'm questing I don't pay attention to it anyway so sales pitch away. I've seen it before in other games and a few months ago in WS beta where someone was bitching how ESO was better. So tit for tat I suppose.

The numbers mentioned are pure fantasy though. I'm sure WS will get at least a million subs at start then trickle down to half that for the rest of it's run. People will be hoping it goes f2p which it might since other big name mmo's went that route. Either way expect to see more of this during their open beta run.

Well, this is just low. This one is no better than a gold spammer.

If its low level toons it might be WS staff but if its high level people its most likely players who are not resubbing.

We have players on this forum doing their bit for Wildstar, so I can't say I am surprised. :)

Heh, it's funny people posting about knotwood being a synonym for a shill. Are we getting a new household name for shills?

Anyways, now I'm considering cancelling my digital deluxe purchase. I haven't played the game yet and won't be considering playing the beta since I have no time for it.

People actually think Carbine had something to do with this? Thank you, this is why we have shows like "Keeping up with the Kardashians" and fads like "planking".
