Unfortunately,
all their marketing lies: the first thing most players see when logging into the game is a bunch of elves running around.
Pre-order bonus was a stupid, ugly red and yellow (or purple and green for females) hood and elf mask that EVERYONE seems to have.

The game is no less silly than the things it tries to position itself away from. Complete with giant minotaur helmets, neon rainbow colored armor, "spartan" helmets and whatnot.



As a side note, the trailer was relatively funny. More enjoyable than the whole 'night elf mohawk' / celebrity wow commercial line.

Is it just me or does that elf remind me of Michael Jackson?

"Tired of Elves"?

No, HiRez. What I'm tired of is you trying to pass this off as an MMO.

How many MMOs have a territorial control system how that?

This is a real MMO, guys.

Every dot is another place you can travel to in EVE online. Yes, all those thousands of tiny dots. Sections are reserved for player factions and NPC stuff of course, but corporations (or guilds or whatever) fight over giant sections of the map.
They build space stations and improvements that affect their defenses, military, industrial and other capacities. Global Agenda is the kids & casual version of all of this.

If they spent more time telling us what they did have rather than what they didn't have, maybe more people would be informed about the game. I don't care what a game DOESN'T have. Seriously that's all these ads have told me. Maybe it's supposed to make you interested so you go check it out, but it doesn't peak my interest at all to hear what something doesn't have, and then not know anything else about the product.

One of the few things I do know is that people are complaining about the elf masks so many people have, after they promised no elves. Why give away Elf Masks for people to wear? Isn't it just as annoying to get shot by someone wearing a goofy elf mask? They say no elves, then give elf masks so you see elves all over, I seriously don't get that logic.

Time to lighten up kiddies; the trailer is made in fun, stop using it as your personal soapbox.

Her poor meadow....

PS: Stop crapping on the game folks, its fine. The Devs are working their arses off bringing in the goods. It's an MMO game, get over it.... No one ever said it was an MMORPG.... People who complain about games like these are the reason the market is so stale. Someone does something different and they poo poo all over it.. and why? because it's not wow? Because there are no fairy's and pixies? because there isn't a gear grind at the end?

This game is great. If you are looking for a fairy tale go play something else.

A lightly amusing & harmless bit of fun, though in fairness I think the "no elves" ad campaign was stale before this even went into production.

New tactics please.
