I want to see how people feel about these.

 I've already written several posts and a review of Scarlet Blade. During my review of Scarlet Blade I even pointed out the falseness that these are stating such as "Most Anticipated MMO of 2013" which was the main one I focused on. I in no way mind any of the other ads however, this game is in no way a highly anticipated game; let alone most anticipated of 2013.

 I understand sex appeal to pull in the audience for the game; it happens all the time regardless of media outlet. However, when you actually play the game Scarlet Blade it's a horribly linear game with no innovative features. Even the graphics are subpar compared to todays standards.

 Will my distaste change the outcome depending on whether or not MMORPG.COM will removed them? No

 I really can't say anything to change their minds. They're a company who retains their revenue on on ads so that's how they stay online. However I'd remove the false ads such as "most anticipated" if I were them. It's a lie to their potential customers and when you hype a person up beyond the actual value of the game (especially for F2P) you're going to completely disappoint them. Which will lead to you not getting money from them.

I agree with your assessment of the game it's an extremely mediocre game trying to hide behind a veneer of scantily clad women.

I also agree with the whoel most anticipated thing but arguing to remove the tag lien fromt he ads is a quagmire because even if onlya small group of sad teenage,weeaboo virgins is Highly anticipating it, it still amkes it a valid statement for that group lol.

I honestly don't see what the big deal is. It's fine if an ad has a guy cleaving something in half with an axe, but if there's half of a female nipple, it's a problem.

 Just for jokes, If someone walks in and you're on a website with a character cleaving something in half. They'll assume it's a new movie, show, or video game. Not much explaining needed. However, If someone walks in with a 95% naked woman it's harder to explain. Just think about it, "NO! I swear it's not porn it's a video game ad!" The whole thing is all quite funny. However, the game is just bad and it's terrible to even see this game getting any face time on websites. But, like I said earlier, "MMORPG.COM is getting paid for the advertisement space".


Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

Do these guys even advertise anywhere else? Seems like they shot their whole advertising wad here...so to speak.

Apparently the less clothing worn the higher the armour level :P

Seriously, are they advertising a game or a pr0n mag XD

I'll put a fiver on  the player base being between 13 and 17, male, playing with the lights off in their fap cave XD  Any takers? lol

Is the game any good btw?  Or is it just good for building up the muscles of one arm giggidy giggidy.

I think the most important question is, how can these companies crap out MMO's like water from the tap?

 

How the hell do they maintain all of those?

I would guess that they have a base engine onto which the tack graphics and other formulaic crap.  Someone picks a theme then they copy, paste and paint.

This games selling point is the fact that it sails fairly close to pr0n and is aimed at the male age range that has just developed body hair and a deepening voice.  Tits always sell.

It is offensive only because you can see the deliberate money pit and short life span.  I doubt; no I am fairly positive that games such as this are only made to get as much cash in a short a time as possible before closing.   Lifespans for this kind of product are rarely more than a few years.

Updates apart from keeping it running are probably if not certainly an extremely low priority.

Maintaining this kind of clone probably consists of  paying taxes and checking bank accounts.

My main reason for the disapproval of these ads is as follows: I play games for tatical challenge, not to look at boobs. While there certainly is a cultural response to the ads (and I typically agree with it), I personally would rather see ads that relate to gameplay and not on a silly sex sale.

I aint even mad, I was just trying to find deeper meaning in what you said while taking a crack at teenagers.

For me though, the game is aight, its nothing we havent seen before. Aside from some occasional nudists, and a ton of inuendo, the game is average at best.

Worth a look, but nothing to really sink your teeth into.

The problem is the way they're advertising the game. 

"It's getting hot in here so take off all your gear". Really? This game apparently only has one selling point and that's halfnaked ladies, because that's the only thing I've seen in the 5 or so masive ads for it. 

The problem isn't nudity in a game. The problem is using nudity as a way of promoting a game that has no other unique features that make it worth playing. It gives a bad reputation to games like this in general. It's a ridiculous way to get people to play your game.

Not even interested in trying the game out because of these ads.

haha! its so funny to see this crap that often beginns with "im adult. i know sex sells". the ones using that arguement are often the ones knowing less than avarge joe about ads. sex dosent sell. what it does is alienating the other sex to be a poteniell consumer. just look at the market that are focusing on one dimensional sexism. does it go well for them? nah, i wouldnt say so. companies focusing to include both sexes. just look at mobile games that are taregeting a large group of ppl. pwning every single top chart.   

ppl on forumes seems to know tons about advertising nowdays, i blame mad men for it. 

best wishes from a mofo with a freaking master degree in the subject. and yes, it does count. 

bai

edit: and for the sake of it. please look up how it went for dr pepper when they tried to pull this sexism sht. guess what happend with em suckers. they had to say sorry because their sales dropped. why? well mainbly because a large chunk of the products consumers felt left out with the ads... so yeah. sexisms sells in my behind. 

 

bai again.

the ads clearly show what game to expect,,they attracted me , and turned you away,,mission accomplished

this is a one trick pony, and the nudity is the trick

4 days of entertainment for 25$,,im good with that

it was fast, it was easy, and it was pretty fun

and it offered a smoother ride , than most AAA mmos,,no bugs in 4 days, and VERY user friendly

the settings screen had a "use for character", and a "use for account" function,,very nifty

I rly dont have any problem with them and dont see why they should be.

 

The target audience for that game is 11-16 year old boys and it most likely works.

 

If those pixelated hentai/animeish pictures makes you feel uncomfortable you should ask yourself why.  If you walk into a bookstore that also sels magazines what do you see on most covers?

 

ANY game does this in one way or another, scarlet blade just has more focus on it as it is their only selling point.

The "loli" from the elsword ad that has the girl with the yellow/greenish hair also makes sure her booty tries to get ur attention when you look at the ad.

 

I have a youtube channel with almost 10k subs. I dont do it usually as i think it is cheap but i have tested it with changing thumbnails. A thumbnail from the game itself drawed a average amount of vieuwers most of my videos get, When i uploaded part 2 of said video with a thumbnail that was focussed on some animeish boobies it almost got 3 times more vieuwers.
