  Hello MMORPG

I can remember the hidden nipple-gate discusion on these forums, but this is hilarious :P

The large background commercial for Conquer 2 clearly shows a man who cannot afford a belt and a razor :)

 

Anyway I don't care (I'm European), but this is kinda of funny considering the previous complaints about commercials.

(I just noticed a pierced  male nibble too, I should stop looking at that picture since I consider myself straight lol)

 

please don't ban me

    the perfect solution:

    resize your browser window so you don't see the character on the left and right.

    I know, I know :) . It was just a funny observation. I'm guessing that he lost his eye to an infected piercing too :P

    Us "ladies" don't all want to spend our forum time staring at some stripperific "buff" bloke having a stretch on the side of the page. 

    Still, it's their loss. There's nothing that puts me off a game more than advertising it based on the promise of near nudity.

    Yeah, some of the artwork in these ads for F2P games is simply atrocious. The Conquer 2 stuff isn't that bad, but the Dragona ads were just hideous and way out of proportion.

    And I'm sorry, but that is NOT lower stomach hair...

  • ZX81SpectrumZX81Spectrum Member Posts: 39

    Hehe, maybe it all boils down to envy. I would not mind having a build like that guy (I know my wife would not). At least I still have my  hair (on me scalp I mean! and....ahh dammit :P)

    Anyway just trying to inject a wee bit of humour in these grimm times :)

    The dude's been out on the open sea without intimate company for months. Can't blame him for being a little desperate right? He's asking for trouble from the rest of the crew though.

    Also it seems this game can has both ninja's and pirats. That makes up for a lot right?

    The incredibly gay pirate with the disdain for underwear is quite distracting, and god forbid anyone at work actually sees that.

     

    Please remove ASAP,

    thanks.

    Yeah... anything south of the happy trail is definitly not stomach hair... lol.  And is that a plate mail cod piece?  The only protection he's got... besides his nip armour of course.

    Rofl, +1 for 'having a stretch' - exactly my thoughts when I first saw the bloke. Given the choice between the ninja who looks like he means business and the pirate posing for his next swimsuit shoot...pass me the bloody sai >_>

    All of the artwork from that marketing series is atrocious. From the 10-12 head high humans to the overt sexual nature of it.

    You are not supposed to be browsing gaming forums while at work image

    I didn't even notice until you guys called it out, but then near naked pictures of males don't really draw my attention.

    I guess he's an Asian pirate because that's definitely nothing to brag about in terms of stomach body hair.

    hell, I never shave and I've got 10x that (you probably didn't need to know that)

    and why is it that all of the adds on mmorpg.com look like they've been drawn by a 12 year old anime fan while day dreaming in his math class 

    people pay a lot of money for advertisment here, but they really should pay more money to their arists I think

     

    PS that pirate has an outtie too, I'd never play a game where pirates have outties...cause outties are gross

    Yeh, i have had to resize my browser window, as if it's not some manga girl with her baps out, then it's a nipple-pierced emo pirate with his nads almost out, which would probably get my into a meeting at work, with the theme of "look, what you like outside of work, that's fine with us...however homoerotic it is...but..." lol

     I had to read the OP post, look at the ad, then read the OP post again before I even understood what was wrong.

    I think there's nothing wrong with the ad. The problem is people who are hyper-sensitive and see inappropriate material everywhere.

    He's just trying to be Jack Sparrow.

    Unfortunately the effect more resembles Fast Freddy and the Playboys.

    Need less face metal and more mascara, Jack.
