Has anyone else been paying attention to the ads for this game?
Now, I understand downplaying your competition in favor of your own product is quite common in marketing, but Tera seems to be coming harder than anyone in recent memory. People thought Rift's "we're not in Azeroth' campaign was pretty ballsy, but this seems to be taking it to a whole 'notha leveI lol. I was curious as to what you guys think about this? Think it's funny, cool, pathetic, bananas, what?
I, for one, am a bit conflicted. I like it to an extent. They seem confident with what they have so that's nice, but something about the commercials just rub me the wrong way. I don't know what it is exactly, but if I had to guess, it'd be that they seem a bit too confident.
I've been seeing a lot of varying opinions on the beta. Some say the action is a nice change, but you're essentially doing the same thing you've been doing in any other mmo. Kill this many dudes with sticks, turn in the quest, go back and kill the bigger dudes with the bigger sticks, raid. Done. Others think it's the second coming of MMOs, which is a little hard to believe, but...you know...opinions and all that shit. Obviously we'll have to wait until it goes live to see how things pan out, but I digress.
What do you think about Tera's marketing campaign? And just for kicks, on a scale of "I don't give a fuck" to "Strap it On" how excited are you?
