Our media team will be starting on more videos soon so we wanted to do a little poll to see what would you like to see next. Comments are also welcomed.

I would like to see a match between the developers or something like that, we could not only see how the game progresses,but also the pace, the economy, buildings, units, and how they work.

i was about to write the same as Darathor but he was faster :D ,alternatively i would like to see different units battling eachother in stone-paper-scissors style. And any piece of magic u will be willing to show us will be very welcome, of course. :p

I'd love to see a base getin builded and just normal things happening to see how everything works and the game plays.

I voted the first one since it'd give me some insight, but I think a developers battle would be better as stated above, plus give us quite a while of viewing pleasure, as well as possibly strategic insight. It's also easier to film and you could whip it up in a day or so :P

I think a dev battle would be cool and would really show how the game is coming along and mabye the ui

Yes may I express my support for the dev battle notion as well. And please make it so you include as much of it in the vid as possible. I hate it when the go from gathering resources straight to the endgame.

Yes a developer battle would be awesome. I do like the idea of cycling through the races and explaining their unique features though, this would show the public just how vast and re-playable this game will be.

I would like to see how you build a naval army! :] and do you buy horses or breed them?

I have voted for "Gameplay video on economy, building and combat with designer voiceovers" but in the same time it would be nice to see some combination between this and the "Trailer showing MMORTS gameplay/cinematic footage".

Hmm I voted for MMORTS... The other choices were too long and complicated to understand for my morning 10 o'clock brain.

So here comes another marvelous trailer...

I'd like to see the interface and see a lot of the features we've heard about in practice.

Konstantin Fomenko

Well gameplay video and trailer are too completely different things.

So by the results so far it looks like we`ll be making a gameplay video and not a trailer - mostly with top-down view, showing interface as well. We`ll get one of the leads to describe what`s happening.

We`ll try to squeeze in as much as possible - for a quick overview of most gameplay aspects.

And I think we can expect another trailer in early fall, Danny said he waned to make one for the launch of the beta.

Danny said he waned to make one for the lunch of the beta.

Lunch...mmmm human meat nom nom nom. Also the best gameplay is seeing a full one start to finish I think which is why so many suggested a full length dev battle.

Darathor
08-11-2009, 02:44 PM
A start to finish match would be awesome, it would show a lot of the features of the game and we would get to see the economy, base building, combat, and a lot more stuff.

Can I make one too? xD
To be honest Danny makes videos much like in my style, perhaps part of the cause of that was because we worked on quite a few videos together, don't know. But if I'd want to make a fan trailer it'd be almost pointless because Danny makes them in the way I see trailers and videos, so I'm really glad about that!

I would really love to see actual gameplay.

Something like this would work to showcase pure skirmish mode - and even in that case video would be good 20 minutes long.

I think we`ll most likely cut in and out of various stages of MMO development and battles instead. 30 seconds creating your city character, 30 seconds early gameplay and first quests, 30 seconds player vs player, 30 seconds building your city up, 1 minute on combat...Main problem - do we show this continuous build up for once race, or jump from race to race...heh.

Darathor
08-11-2009, 07:27 PM
If you have slightly more than 30 seconds for each of those then it would be feasible to have all three races in one video, though you would see less of each race whereas if you made one of each race it would take longer to make them. If you do make a video for each race though do elves first!:D

i really wanna see how there are gonna do the whole mmo stuff, along what the world map and stuff is gonna look like and how they transition between the map and battles/quests

Luckily for the game, but unluckily for our videos all of our races are really unique especially when it comes to the build up, economy or even MMORTS quest storylines. So this will be really challenging. After further discussions on our end - we might end up with three different videos - shorter but more continuous. Combining option 1 and 2 on the poll.

So do you have a set time you want to use like only make the vid 3 minutes long or could it be something like 10 minutes long?

Konstantin Fomenko
08-12-2009, 07:13 AM
3 minutes is what we`ll be aiming for.

LiTos456
08-12-2009, 08:45 AM
Awesome. When do you say it'll come?

Konstantin Fomenko
08-12-2009, 10:03 AM
Haha - nice try Litos. After our fiasco with website opening delay we should gracefully refrain from giving any ETAs:)

Aametherar
08-12-2009, 10:19 AM
yeah that'd be bad, wait when was it you said beta was coming again? I forgot could you repeat it?:D

Just show us 1v1 match of two races. But I wouldn't want it to be scripted. I will like an actual gameplay, from beginning to end.

Haha, smart choice.
Somehow I find myself very patient about this game, unless Aametherar starts blabbering about how he can't wait to fight with the thousand of armies and stuff. I try not to think about that :P

And Aametherar, as of now the beta is supposed to start early fall...but... as Kon said, not ETAs. They wanted to start it in late spring, so they're taking it nice and slow.

i voted for wrong one :(

I'd really like to see how the game works. All of the trailers of epic battles are enjoying but I have to be honest and say I still don't really know how the game actually works. Would be easier for people to spread the word and help answer comments from those watching the traielrs if we knew more about the structure of the game.

'Gameplay video on economy, building and combat with designer voiceovers'


However, one should bear in mind that the members of this forum already know of the game, and this trailer might not be as effective in reeling in the numbers as perhaps a trailer on action, combat, graphics etc.

I read quite a few Previews on the game and everything on the official webpage but I still don't really know what I should expect (and tbh from what I've heard so far this game almost sounds too good :) )

Hello people(I'm new by the way^^),I would like to see the MMORTS aspect of the game or the economy.

I would like to see the game mechanics in general so I can understand the differences between the races better, that would make in my opinion more sense.
I think deino is right when he says that the most people here have only an approximate idea of the game as a whole.

I think a race by race trailor would be good. Showing its advantages (quirks) and applying them to real time play e.g. could have the humans show of strength by showing them repell a siege attack. Or could have the orcs show of strength in melee etc.

This would answer alot of questions and give us a better look at what we can expect from both the diffrent races but also the fight and movement system. I know its alot to fit into a trailor so you could break it up into sections. ie building tralor for humans than a fighting one etc.

More trailors = happy peeps :P and people could select the most relavant one to there intrest. e.g. the builders... the attackers etc.
