    Anyone else find it humorous that they reused footage from their "Pre-Alpha" First Look from March of 2016 in their Progress Update over a year and a half later?

    Rolling hills and vistas, as well as day night cycle - all at stunning 12 fps.

    Dude walking, dude running, dude hammering, dude swinging his sword at invisible enemies.

    All set to epic score invoking feelings of epicness.

    (relax I am kidding, but yes they reused footage because... ehm its already there so why not?)

    I dont know if humorous is the word I would use. I think sad would be a better fit.

    Another over-ambitious MMO attempt that will be hit hard by the reality of MMO development? We shall see, I was excited when i first learned about CoE but i am afraid that they are biting more than they can chew without even having the core system in place and we all know how this usually turns out.

    Almost 6½ mins of video and that's the amount of shit you can throw at them? Either they've stepped up their game or you're slipping, Slapshot.

    That a year and a half passed and they couldn't find new footage but had to reuse stuff for the "PROGRESS VIDEO" speaks to the progress just fine.  And it was a jest.. a joke... believe me.. they have much larger issues than simply reusing old footage for a progress video.

    I think the problem is people dont get your jokes. maybe they arent smart enough not sure but help us out here, explain the joke and maybe even explain why you feel this is the place for a joke

    Please do not respond to me, even if I ask you a question, its rhetorical.

    The joke would be hinted at in the very first sentence:

    "Anyone else find it HUMOROUS that..."

    Humor = funny.  Usually when you have a progress video you do not show the same footage that you showed in your "First Look" footage a year and a half ago.   Be definition.. showing the same thing means nothing changed = no progress.   

    Again though... this is a mole hill.  They have much more significant mountains to climb than a mistake in a PR video.

    yeah..no progress.. 

    so what, how is that funny exactly? anyway. maybe lay off the attempts at being a comedian? I think it might not be your thing.

    Why any Studio attempts to make an MMO look "realistic" they take so long to make that they look out dated by the time they are released. They would be much much better off going with simpler art. It doesn't have to look anime but they should have chosen a look that would age better.
