Ok folks,just a thought about how they could advertise a bit.

On another game I play they have had a population problem like this game and they introduced a feature called a cinetheater.

When you click on it you get 3 options of short trailers to watch and at the end of the video you get a production bonus for 12 hours.

The trailers are 20 seconds to a minute long and are advertisements for their other games.

You could incorporate this feature into ships,tanks and world of warplanes games and have a reward like a token or something that could be used in any of the 3 games.

a 20 second ad is easy to breeze through when there's a reward at the end and maybe we will get some players as the game is rarely advertised anywhere else.

 

Thoughts?

A 20 second ad while waiting for a queue wouldn't be bad, how much did that increase the population of the other game you mentioned?

Sometimes I can't believe the game is still going and being developed.

 

I can only assume they have some sort of plan, Bandet had some thought-provoking ideas on the topic a week or two ago.

It stopped the decline but these other guys have a dozen or more games I dont play but am now interested after watching a few trailers for my bonus.It would have to be in all 3 games I mention to maybe lure a few others over from tanks or ships.

This would be easy to do,a spot in your hanger where you click,watch some trailers for other games and get a token or something at the end.

The token could be used in all games advertised and at the end of the video is a link to play the game. 

I know it works because I swore off any more games and deleted quite a few but some of these they show look like fun and they have piqued my interest.

 

They initially advertised this game on release(WOWP) to everyone and if you search for any problems you have you will come across topic after topic from people that saw the ads,tried the game but could not afford a pc that would play it at the level it was meant to be played at.These topics are long archived but none of the noobs stayed so at least this will target gamers who do have good computers.

Nope,not while waiting in the queue,Needs to be a separate function where you have to click to get your reward,something like they used to do with rats.

heh heh!

 

If anyone wants the name of the game doing this pm me and I'll send you the info. 

If I post a link I will get red inked for sure.

Advertising a broken(anything) game isn't a smart play and generally a waste of time and money. The game has some serious issues that need to be resolved before they attempt to gain new players.

because the game is crap. Why would they advertise?

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Sadly the serious issues seem almost intentionally applied

Agreed. Add clan wars, offer like 1k gold for everybody that gets 2 victories per day for a month, and your problem will self-solve. The game is fun right now, if you didn't have the bots. Yeah, there's a lot of people here on the forum that don't like X, Y, or Z about the game, but most of the complaints I see on here aren't really relevant to the game anymore. Things like bouncy planes haven't happened in a LONG time, bad MM is fixed, collisions are fixed (just don't try to ram that GA guys, please?), TnB is well balanced vs BnZ (as long as you're not dependent on bots...), heavy fighter boost has been nerfed, etc.

 

I'm not saying the game is perfect - it's not... But it is at a fun state where I think it would hold the interest of people who came to check it out as long as you can draw enough in at once to basically remove bots for a month while everybody figures it out. I don't think any F2P MMO that's constantly being developed will ever be 'perfect' - the aim should be perfect, but the result should be fun while it's worked on and I think we're at that point now if they push some kind of clan wars and bring in enough people to offset bots.

 

 

Cheers!

The game isn't fun enough right now(and hasn't been for awhile) to get passed the well earned bad reputation Wargaming has bestowed on it...If this wasn't the sad truth the people I know who really enjoyed this game would be playing it.

Meh, Ford still advertised the Pinto and sold a pile of them (even after the bad reputation it rightly earned)!

Yeah they make us in Detriot think the Lions are going to be better each year but that won't happen until they sell the team to someone who cares

 

They constantly stink and somehow draw a full house each week for the most part.

 

Quesnel has a good point....you see an ad enough and eventually you think you are missing out on something.

 

Of course they eventually figure out the truth but if you keep rotating your stock like the Lions rotate coaches/players and front office personnel then the cash keeps coming

The Pinto and Vega were a poc till someone found a way to put a small block chevy in them. That's what wg needs outside help to fix this game.

ok we get all those players back somehow, what is going to keep them around? Lots of gameplay issues and all that, but people look past that temporarily if the end goal is fun and interesting. what do we have? oh yay another plane to grind.

On a side note Town Club is selling "Honolulu Blue" cream soda. All you have to do is drink enough kool aid and you will believe.

That's why I said that for bringing in a bunch of people again, they'd need to add CW first - that way there's something for them to stay for. That's the main issue with the game right now. Nothing to stay for unless you're just hooked on free air combat in a slightly-better-than-that-other-game format.
