Marketing Towards PVE


123 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

With the recent trailer released they seem to be targeting PVE and RP players more so than PVP. I understand this game is supposed (is) to be PVP focused but I do not pull PVP from this trailer at all. Or really any of their advertising. 

 

Thoughts?

And no I'm not complaining nor taking a side. Simply pointing out what this trailer seems to be showing.

I believe so, I'm just curious if this is any indication of the future of BDO major content releases.

Sad they make it marketed toward pve and role players when the only reason I considered this game was because it OWPVP and has sieges.

People love to whine about everything and when they run out of things to whine about, they'll simply whine that they have nothing to whine about! xD

This is a problem for you? Having more people engaged in the game doing what they want to eventually gives you more opportunities for PVP opportunities.  I swear you guys limit yourselves by just being so focused on one aspect. There is an entire game here.

They're marketing towards PvE because they know that's where most of the money is made, but they're not lying in the video. It does have beautiful visuals and is a great platform for roleplaying.

 Rest assured, we'll most likely get a PvP-focused trailer eventually.

I'm talking far beyond what's currently on the KR server obviously.

ppl crying about pve content cuz "the game is pvp focused anyway" are fckin retarded.

are you trying to tell us they shouldn't try to make the pve part enjoyable cuz the "only pvp" ppl wont play the new content anyway?

ever thought about the possibility of other ppl wanting a well rounded game?

They know there's a huge pvp fan base for this already, they're trying to get more pve and rpers on board to even out the playerbase interests in the game. At least thats my opinion.

I didn't say it was a problem anywhere, asking for thoughts.

Trailers bring people in, when it's not what they expected things get messy.

I'm far from whining right now.

That will be interesting to see for sure.

I keep telling myself that, I will pity them and enjoy rants on this very forum when PvE people start demanding content. 

I will definitely say "I told you so"

I think they are just advertising how visually stunning the game is. I've said before that the game looks like a roleplayers dream because it's aesthetically outstanding. Regardless of how you intend to play the game a lot of people will be attracted because of the visuals. First impressions count. I'm sure a more indepth trailer will be released expressing the pvp endgame content :)

people pvp over the pve(plus most of those cinematics are from the black spirit quest) This trailer isnt aimed at any type of person its just showing some of the story quest scenese which is common is gaming trailors, even in pvp centric games.

people keep forgetting(or dont know) this is a pvpve game

 

and lol why even make this thread, if anything its only going to make new people(or the people who refuse to understand how the game really is) misunderstand the game more and things will just get worse on the forums

That doesn't mean people don't read too much into trailers. Most people probably won't even consider the trailer pushing PvE.

I really hope that isn't an official trailer, because it was pretty awful.
