Sorry mate but I'm afraid I must respecfully disagree. All I feel A-net has done is to just saw off those bits of the Wow themepark model they felt made the game cumbersome. Well that and tinker with a few other features that were pioneered by other games. That's it. And I personally see nothing revolutionary about just omitting content. So I feel they've acted exactly OPPOSITE of the advice in my sig. I feel they've pandered to the weary themepark crowd by giving them "Themepark Lite".
And no before anyone flys off the handle that I'm saying GW2 sucks, I'm not. I'm just saying in my opinion it ain't all that new.
If you believe innovation means 100% pure new never existing features, than I hate to break it to you but you're sadly mistaken.
by your definition
- the personal computer is not an innovation
- the iphone is not an innovation
- the LCD is not an innovation
- the internet is not an onnoation.
I could go on forever and ever and ever......
If you truly believe GW2 is going "against the trends, fads and popular opinion, they did what no developer has dared do for 10 years, innovate" then I'm sorry to break it to you but you're being had.
GW2 is basically a mix of every major popular feature created in the last 10 years and before that (fantasy themepark, class-based, RvR, Public Quests, battlegrounds, cutscenes/VOs, etc). It is very, very far from being a daring game. If anything, ANET played it extremely safe. Which is why I find the trailer to be deceptive, in addition to awful.
Don't get me wrong, GW2 is a very good MMORPG, but it's not revolutionary. Heck, to even call it innovative is asking for a 20 page discussion on semantics.

I just don't get the hysteria, I really don't. I guess "Too Old To MMO, To Young To Die".

Do you really have to insult people?
Gas Mask + hoodie + real world = The Secret World.
Its imagery I see daily.
I was lioke WTF is an illuminati doing in this GW2 video
At least with a sub game they know that people won't tolerate bullshit and leave. With anet we have no recourse but to buy our own lube so our assholes don't get too stretched out from getting bent over a table at Anets will. - Hrimnir
Well i will say it was not what i expected,so i give them some credit there.This is because i expected bragging of some kind,so they made me happy in that sense :P.
As for the video,the first 3/4 was way out in left field,you would have no idea was a GW2 trailer.The last 20 seconds or so was REALLY good .IMO they skip the 3/4 part and just make the entire video like the last 20 seconds and would be a great video.
Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.
I thought I was trolled until the last couple of scenes. Why not show of the great music, graphics and tell everyone about the combat system? Why tell everyone that you don't need a subscription for this MMO? Why not show off the rave reviews they had been getting? Maybe even something about the lore, personal story lines and dynamic events? Why the f*** did they spend their advertising money on something that has spent the majority of it time with a shitty whiney voice over going on about something that has nothing...NOTHING to do with the game!?
I mean... I could do a better job advertising guild wars using crayons and their head of PRs face! Sheesh.. have we de-evolved as a species in the last year or something. That was just pathetic.

So you didn't like it?
The best art may not get understood at the time of its making. Not saying it's the best, I didn't fully get it either and only enjoyed the latter quarter of the trailer until I read most of this thread.
Definitely controversial though, should get people interested. I would have gone with the majority here and done a trailer more focused on the game, not to a "we are not in azeroth" ridiculousness level though.
That was... odd.
As artsy as it might or might not have been I still wonder why ANet did trailer like that. Artsiness propably is not best way to sell stuff.
My Guild Wars 2 blog. Read it. The bestestest and most TRUTHEST BLOG EVER!!
This ad was more pretentious than Bella Swan, and about as deep to boot.
Undead King Ghidorah at the end was a nice touch though. Perhaps Tyrian Godzilla should be summoned to save the day?
Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

The only thing "controversial" about it, is that it was so awful that it makes me want to cringe and hide in a corner. Even worse than regular commercials .

As I replied on YouTube... Aside from the last few seconds where people transform into in-game characters, this trailer would have done better as a TSW trailer...

I honostly had to check to see if I had clicked the right link at first - then realized it actually said GW2 in the top - where as it didden't make much sense to me at all.
Obviously when the female starting growing tatoos I knew she was playing a norn, but really not the best choice for the trailer - it might be "art" as some say, though that kind of art certainly doesn't fit well in here, people won't really know what they are watching at all, or what to expect even.
EDIT: Another thing is that, I personally would wish that Zhaitan actually would attack like that instead of clinging to a tower
Originally posted by Atlan99 The only way you could consider this drivel art, is if you are the kind of person that considers Britney Spears a musician.
At least she hits her target audience. If this trailer actually had generic mass appeal, I could forgive it, for being tacky or whatever. but no, it's just awful, no matter how you look at it. It's not going to hit any target audience, niche, mass, or otherwise.
When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.
What happened Anet?
What did the guys making this vid smoke?
I like the game but this was just weird.
It is and I do. Of course, bad art and bad musician but that does not really change anything.
You dont need to be Mozart to be a musician, anyone playing banjo at a hillbilly wedding is still a musician.
But it makes me wonder: Why? A few minutes of game footage beats crap like this. But for some reason are MMO commercials at best bad and often horrible (this one horrible).
it reminded me an old awesome commercial from David Lynch for the Playstation2 , but they could make it better the girl with the gasmask and the party around the fire was kinda awkward, they could made something mroe sophisticated or something more obvious the middle path was kinda blah.
smart intentions, mediocre result .
Originally posted by Eir_S They shouldn't make TSW trailers for GW2... after all, we know how that game's doing.
Doesn't change the situation here now does it? trailer is still awkward and out of place. But i like how you cleverly managed to take a jab at TSW anyways.
There are thousands of gameplay videos/trailers/previews on youtube and they have been around for years. Informed gamers have already seen them and potential costumers are teased to go look for them.
This trailer/commercial is brilliant. The fact that so many hipsters around here didn't like it only proves how good it is.
Well done i say.
