I love the No Elves campaign, it's created great hype (they're even selling T-shirts) and it makes it very clear that this MMORPG isn't going to be just another fantasy setting MMORPG like the 200 others already on the market. It was also funny in the video that they make fun of MMORPG casting times.

This is pretty cheap.

Anyone remember Talislanta? No? Guess I'm old.

Their whole marketing hook was "...and no elves" in the 80s and 90s.

Sure, these guys can do it and it's ok. But it's like thinking the music behind "ice ice baby" is original.

I came in to say exactly this. I loved those little ads in the back of Dragon Magazine.

Don't tell me what you don't have, I couldn't care less, tell me what you DO have.

If you're telling me the reason I should buy your game is you don't have elves, I have to conclude you have nothing interesting to offer and I should look elsewhere.

It is never a good idea to define yourself or your product by a negative.

I think the trailer was supposed to point out how fantasy is done to death and that global agenda has new and exciting things to offer......


However going on a "No Elves" campain thats purely negative is a dumb Idea. If it was "No elves, Lots of guns." or somthing like that....

Eventually the entire world will be divided. No more of that "tastes great" versus "less filling" crap. This time its serious.

Now if you could just tell them apart from the males that would be awesome.

So... what else do they not have? Can I not roll a Hunter? Can I run no quests and get no loot? How in-depth is the no crafting system? Can I not choose between servers with no PvP and no PvE? Can I look forward to not running instances once I don't reach the lack of a level cap?

It doesn't sound like this game has a lot to not do so far.

People are going over board with the "Not" and "Elves"

The ad isn't talking about what is not in the game, nor is it targeting elves.

It's just a parody for people to laugh at and gain intrest in the game.

Thats it! No need to go in depth with why Global Agenda is so raciest or why they're showing whats not inside their game.

People are so over protective about elves these days >.

I think it is catchy. It lets people know this isn't your daddy's MMO and they are making sure that everyone knows it. At bare minimum, there won't be anyone calling this game a WoW clone.
