The word "Dethroned" implies that something else has taken its place...which is not true at all. So like the content or not WOW is still the king of MMOs and will be for some time looking ahead the next few years.

I actually really like it because it's different and not just some crap CGI that makes the game look 10x better than it really is.
The guy at the start who has turned to stone kind off suggests that the MMO industry has stood stagnant for years, which it has, I think it's a pretty bold trailer.
The Good News: Sales are back up
The Bad News: They came with this trailer
That was weird...
I'm gonna pretend i didn't just watch that and go back to playing GW2
Originally posted by Suzie_Ford ArenaNet has announced that digital sales of Guild Wars 2 have resumed on the official site. To celebrate the good news, a new trailer, "Our Time Is Now", has been released. The trailer was created by James McTeigue, known for his work on the Matrix Trilogy and V for Vendetta.
It somehow reminds me of the 1980s Apple commercial that made so much hype.
its that good, makes ypou wonder, is it a movie or a game ?
brilliant enough said.

What an awful trailer.
I approve of the game, but this has absolutely nothing to do with GW2, save for the very last couple of seconds at the end.
All the symbolism in the world doesn't make it any better, or more artsy - yes, there's a message.. but it's mucked between poor live-action bits and the limited time of a trailer.
As far as making someone think.. the only thing I thought when I saw this was: "WTF is this? Please tell me this is fan-made, not official."
If I saw that trailer, unknown to the context of the game.. I wouldn't even reasearch that game, much less buy it.
I'm all for artsy, in fact i love it when it's done brilliantly, but that was just bad.
As much as i hate CGI trailers, i think the beginning would have been so much better if they found a way to animate the painterly artstyle and eliminate the modern setting.

Millions of players playing with about 10,000 hacked accounts of which they are agressively fixing and setting straight. You are blowing it out of proportion.

Yeah it's really confusing. They touted their (admittedly very nice) art style for years, and then instead of using it for their first real trailer, they hire some Hollywood dumbass and have real people. I agree about the CGI trailers though, they always get your hopes up for an awesome game but you soon realize the trailers were the best part (DCUO and WAR for example).

i dont think its blowing this out of proportion..10,000 accounts..anyways wrong thread for this discussion but i was just responding to what i believe correct..why are they selling again when they have'nt even dealt with the problems they have.
to put it another way ,the chinese must be licking their lips waiting for the next load of hacked accounts.
I enjoyed the ppl turning into characters and playing the game, but the hot stones and spray can was out of place.
less acting with some more ingame dragons. But also some of you have been to harsh with pointless critasism.
We'll see how much I'm "blowing it out of proportion". Maybe I am. I won't know until I actually hear back from Anet with something other than an auto-response. NcSoft handles a few games with millions of customers that I'm sure combined have many support issues including fraud concerns. It took them a few hours to contact me (outside of the auto-response) and assure me I was being refunded the $120 charged to my card.
Doesnt matter how many players GW2 has.10,000 hacked accounts at the same time is telling of the security Anet has set up. I don't buy the "other website" excuse. Especially with all the email verification issues that also existed.
When the thief changed my email there was no secret question security..or anything to confirm it was actually me . Just an email telling me there was a request for an email change and they hoped it was by me and then proceeded to change it anyway.
I just expect my characters back whether they say they can do it or not. Every other mmo can so i dont see the difference here.
If not , then I expect a refund of all my gems used to purchase dyes and what not for those characters.

What this guy said LOL. That opening just doesn't fit a fantasy MMO setting IMHO.... and hey why can't they ever use us Norn males vs. a Norn female? :-)
