Do keep in mind that there are no American devs working on the game. Everyone who actually makes the game is the RU devs.

 

Yeah, but it is WGNA's job to send our feedback and suggestions to Minsk (Belarus devs, not RU). Too bad they don't. So after all these years, no M60A1. No second US medium line.

im sure this is going to bring in some new players but i just watched all the ads and they would so turn me off not make me want to try it. They don't advertise the game at all besides the tank coming rolling through which was not that impressive or funny to me. I get that they are only 15 second spots but i just looked at them like is this for real?

I didn't dislike the commercials, the "Teensy House" one was clever. I don't know that it will sway too many people to try the game, but who knows- I fully expect Blizzard to have something up for their game(s) so why not take them on?

I'd agree that the roughly $10-$25 million likely spent on the ad slots would have probably been better spent elsewhere, but I'm not the financial guy at Wargaming, though I tend to think that for some of these things (like marketing), money isn't really an object.

Shame there is no American M60A1 ingame to represent America.

 

"Hey, watch us promote this tank game in America! Sorry we don't have the M60A1 that should have been in the tech tree. Oh, that second US medium line? We just divert resources to make reward vehicles. Please buy more Gold so we can listen to the RU playerbase instead!"

 

I Have an M60? Your **** poast makes ZERO sense.

He does that just to troll anyone who might be perceived as lamenting the whole M60 debacle.

 

He tries to pull that crap with me, but I don't respond.

 

All that ignorance makes me wonder how he made E-7.

 

If he really ever did - maybe it was E-2 three-and-a-half times.

Agreed, but really, they don't need to spend money, why not just bring back all the maps that were removed?


 

A slightly unbalanced Port, Harbor, ridge, etc. are far better than playing the same ones over and over again.

TL;DR bad move, WG.

...

Wait, PC gamers watch TV? TV watchers own gaming PCs? I'm a bit confused, since I thought it was only really possible to spend time doing one or the other...so why super bowl ads? And, I think I'm the target audience, but I don't feel very effectively targeted. Certainly not $10 million worth of targeted. And ED jokes really don't do WG or WoT credit, and are a turnoff for many people...just like legit ED commericals are. I was just now showing WoT to my parents for the first time and there on the launch screen was the fake ED commercial...it was legitimately embarrassing trying to explain it away, even without watching the thing (which I did later, to find out what the heck it was...and would've rather not, in hindsight)

 

Advertising a video game to a superbowl crowd is strange, even without the ridiculously high price tag - a price tag that has typically kept all but the largest, wealthiest of companies, or those absolutely directly related to the superbowl audience (beer commercials) from wanting to spend money on them.

Some of you need to get back on topic! :)

And that is a fact!!! I have also complained heartily about Maps, MM, and arty....

 

But I still love this game on Super Bowl Sunday with the Falcons in it.....Glad to see my beloved game getting some publicity as well!
