Translation:

I missed this thread and this thread about EVE's recent TV advert and I'm worried about all the incoming people causing more lag, discuss.

This is just like when EvE came to steam : OMG CCP stop getting new players in server cannot handle it!


or

Fix current bugs and nano ***s before making shiny adverts!

While both arguments hold an element of truth, I agree that the whole 'OMG the sky is falling' mentality is a bit tiresome. More players helps everyone in the long run (more targets Twisted Evil and more cash for CCP).

It was very nice to see an EVE advert on sci-fi last night. Very unexpected, looked sweet and perfectly placed during BSG.

Saw the ad during BSG last night. I was hoping that they would have shown more other then the ship smashing into the station. as someone already been in game for 2 year the vid didn't really show me much. didnt tell me why he would slam a cap into the station instead of attacking it. why wasnt anyone there to try and stop him?

As a non eve player sitting there watching BSG,fapping off to thoughts of Six laying on her cot during commercials, i would have been left wondering "wtf?". In a way its internet spaceship and i like spaceships as im there watching BSG. I'd want a game where i can go shoot stuff up and try and be like my favorite BSG character. BUt i wouldn't know wtf kind of gameplay it would be.

I gotta wonder how many non players are going to log onto the site and think they can control their ships like a simulator as opposed to point and click. I think they need to put some highly visible links on the homepage to vids of the game being played. not the cutscene stuff but how the game looks during various sized fights.

I give CCP credit for running an ad for their game, especially during the Epic that is BSG. i know another game ive played that never ran an ad and it could have been so much more had they only gotten the word out.

if i had never heard of eve before id want to play a sim style game. I think id be disapointed by the game system. WHy? because I would be going from BSG,wishing there was a BSG game where i could fly around in a Viper frakin me some flying toasters during a big fleet battle and watching the Capships trading fire. There was a playstation game which i cant remember the name of, sort of similar to wingcommander games. If they had that as an mmo id be all over it.


So what doyou guys think? think the ad was enough for non players to check out the game? Think they will enjoy the game play or will be disapointed due them running it during BSG?

Still GG CCP for going for it. I just gotta say that you should make the next ad one that shows the gameplay. Don't make it look like its an action mmo game. show the customization. show the actual screen we stare at when in a fight. i just think its a tough thing to go from shiney fast paced ads to a game that takes time.

I do hope that the update will actually push the game from "really slow" to something closer to an fps. Not the controls but the way that you can quickly find a fight, kill or be killed, respawn, get a new ship and head back to the battle thats continously raging. If CCP can deliver something like that I wouldn't question why i play a game that takes forever to get a fight.

I am concerned these adds will bring more players that 'sell' their WoW accounts thru sites i will not mention in trade for ISK and skilled charachters in EVE. Ill second the concern about server load and stress as more legits , more isk buying 'console kiddies', and the farmers that support their bad habbits flood the servers.
