    Talking wow vs. DDO advertising

    Im not a big tv person and when I do its DVR skip the adds, but last night I saw a Wow with Chuck Noris spoke hole for wow. Where is DDOs ads. its almost Christmas and poor ol' DDO is left out in the cold again.

    Bring some more peeps to the game, put out some advertising .

    Just a thought

    Have you seen DDO's past "ads"? Unless they actually figure out good advertising, they are better off not blowing budget on some.

    Bad ads will push people away. Point in case, the latest Toyota Yaris commericals. I'm not well versed in cars and such, but I never thought Toyota made bad ones. After these Yaris commercials, I'm not touching Toyota with a 10 ft pole.

    The ad's don't make the game good. Nothing I have seen about WoW is going to make me play it Ever even if it was the last game out it still will never see me...

    There is some sort of "tv comercial" for D&D and it's even 100mins with top notch hollywood actors. ,)

    they shouldnt make ads for DDO except the internet ads because most people who will want to play this game will probably be ignoring the ads, or switching to something else so they dont have to watch the ads. also the ads on the side of a website i find to be more fascinating as they cant make the game look crappy, cause seriously every time i see that WoW ad with chuck norris it makes me want to projectile vomet on everything around me

    Oh god no, not unless they advertised at 10 PM.

    I can just imagine how lucky WoW is with the influx of new and younger players good 'ole Chuck will get them.

    I haven't seen this ad, but the fact that WoW made a commercial with Chuck Norris confirms that I do not ever want to play...

    DDO obviously needs South Park to spoof it to get some publicity.

    Actually, he increased the suck factor by several orders of magnitude.
    Not long ago, I wanted to eventually go back to WoW at some point, but since this Chuck Norris thing...I will never go back to that game.

    Hopefully they would consider NCIS as well. Not that Los Angeles one though.

    The u11 trailer was good enough, i liked the fast scenes from raids, etc.
    Perhaps if they cut advertising the new goodies and make one just about the game as a whole.

    Players should be able to notice the combat system in DDO ads.
    As it is now TERA is pushing their action combat as if it is a new thing.

    anyway whats with all the supprise that vin diesel played D&D? Do people really think that you have to be some guy who lives in his moms basement and is afraid of his own shadow to enjoy roleplay? Its good for your imagination and creativity, and just as long as it stays a hobby and not an obssession that has you neglecting other important stuff in your I don't see what the problem is. I heard in the 70's and stuff people where connecting it to satanism or whatever, ***!! man just shows how ignorant and intorlerant people can be.

    Yup this has bugged me about the show big time. I just can't see these guys playing a game set up for 9 year olds (WoW).
    My real forum Join date is July 2007. Maybe one day someone will develop the awsome technology to fix this currently unfixable bug.
