This is a thread that's going to invite a lot of obvious trolling /frustration and so forth. But all that aside, I say it was an AMAZING marketing video, and hopefully brings in some new players and more cash for our starving Icelanders. Lets also hope the new players it brings in have awesome computers. Very Happy Seriously though, awesome video.

Shame when they are all like Gallente looks tough I will train them then...

WTF the stuff in that video never happens.

The Trolls are CCP for polishing Gallente's Image instead of there ships.

Nice to know that someone working at CCP has remembered that making unrealistic videos of shooting spaceships is still important.

When I saw the video I was like "OMG WHAT A LOAD OF BS" GALLENTE???????? LOOOOOL

No lag, no bugs, also the Incarna avatar didn't jerkily move around and bumped into invisible walls, plus it looked too good it felt "shopped" Very Happy


No really, I feel sorry for the dupes that will believe the hype this video creates. GALLENTE /facepalm

The trailers guide the audience.

Make a trailer about griefing, and more griefers sign up. Make one about racking up ISK and wealth, and the grind/farmaholics sign up (and those are the ones raging over any little loss or setback).

This trailer....

This is going to bring in drama queens.

Am I wrong to be a little creeped out by someone acting like that over something that happened in game? Yeah we can all describe first times in Eve with some drama, if there was a need for it and telling it to other players. To an "outsider" this would rate up as serious "nerd drama". Might as well be trying to boast about your faction mods on a blind date (but if your date fully understands you if you did that, send her my way or find out if she has a sister).

Wait until they really start pushing the customizable-character/fashion plate angle of WiS and see what kind of player base that creates.

Nice video, not very realistic, but at least it'll bring in thousands of noobs who will go and try to fly fleets like that, thus stimulating the economy.

So it's all good.

I for one call for MORE videos of ridiculous fleet compositions.

Blaster-fit, smartbombing, armour-tanked nano drake fleets with ECCM filling their mid slots! Because of Falcon.

The video wasn't made to wow the current playerbase with eve accuracy
It was made to introduce a whole group of people who are familiar with the fighter vs archer concept to eve space terms. Lotta eve lingo wrapped around a very simple gameplay concept (range)

Cue the eve Learning curve picture

Still waiting for gameplay to match their promo vids. Can we at least get the warp-in "snap to" affects and random hit-on-model affects? One thing I hate about Eve is that all guns hit the same stupid spot on the model over and over and over depending on orientation. Complete immersion breaking.

One time, in a wormhole (it was called KBANDCAMP or something I don't know) I was running an arch mod on a sleeper site and one of their faster ships got in range and this blue-white laser beam hit the nose of my ship and moved down the length of it. Never saw that effect anywhere else and for all I know it could have been my ancient graphics card playing tricks.

This is solid proof that Blasters are getting a buff and CCP are making Gallente properly viable again :)

But seriously...

FC in a Hyp? I lolled.

As much as the video to any experienced EVE player is mostly made of lol it is definitely going to be attractive to new players and much as it's not the same ship types you'd see in a real battle it doesn't really matter... it's really a showcase for lots of pretty ships and does more than a simple drake blob or geddon fleet would do to make potential players pick up the game.

I liked also that the fleet comms we hear are actually pretty clsoe to what you'd actually find. There was a time when the voices over the fleet fights were blatently the character not the player. It's nice to hear comms which resemble real FC orders.

All in all, a nice video and definitely aimed at new players, if a little cringy at times...

I too watched this four times in a row. Got shivers every time. Give the team a bonus for this one. Though to be fair, every trailer since the Butterfly Effect has been pretty awesome. Remember the one with the Russian fleet coming in at the end to burn both the other two fleets?

What are you refering too?

The Titans at the end were part of the same group in the origional attack so they didn't fight them. Are you refering to the Nyx Fleet and there support that jumped into the system to re-enforce the Outpost?

The trailer you are referring to is the Eve Online: Dominion expansion pack video. And yes it was also amazing. Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDVEHE10nHc&feature=channel_video_title starts up slow, but gets awesome fast.

OMG WHO BAITS FLEETS TO BUY TIME FOR THE AMBUSH TO BE SPRUNG?

The issues I had with that video are that it was based on a true story of a fight that happened before probing changes made sniper fleets obsolete. And that the sniper FC didn't warp out when the interceptors started closing. And that the gallente FC didn't warp out when the snipers arrived. And that the video displayed better-than-ingame graphics. And interceptors don't sound like that. And weapons impact on the same point of the hull, even when they miss.

I'd be helping market this game to my friends iff actual gameplay was anything like depicted in any of the videos.

Best eve video i've ever seen. Watched four times in a row.
The final part where you see the interceptor in the CQ was really emotional.

Good work!


I came. I mean, I was so THERE! Just like 30 more hours of storyboarding and actually talking about adding quality content and being better to the playerbase, and I'd be so there.

I was there when the enemy cyno lit up and 80 super carriers and 42 titans landed on grid. My PC froze when they deployed drones. But I knew I was still there. I mashed warp while nothing responded and I hoped I was there. Suddenly my pc came to life and my mailbox flashed my shield, amour and structure bars turned red. My station door loaded and I was there.


so we know CCP has lots of money to pay off a real actor, but not pay a real voice actor for the new Aura dialog.

It's probably that they hired outsiders to do the video... or that the people who made it, never really played it.

Just like that "Foreign guy" that keep answering petition with "our logs show nothing, no reimbursement, thank you, come again" because he never played eve and doesn't have access to any log at all.

Just think if CCP actually played eve without their godmode thousand dollar pants on, how ****ing fast all the things that ****es us off would get fixed...
