    Created a hype video that might have felt medicore to some, but others loved. A few people even said it encouraged them join us in the fifth.




    But alas the evil mmorpg subreddit mods took it down. Not quite sure what their big deal was, but oh well.

    1. bad editing
    2. bad video quality
    3. DFO/ROA alpha footage
    4. shitty and extremely overused song
    5. not unique (basically the poor man's "What is Rise of Agon" by BPG)
    6. bad use of footage

    this isn't something i would use to advertise the game
    1/10 for effort

    I managed to get one of my videos on there last week. The mod said this:
    Many subreddits don't allow creative content like this because it sets a precedent to have creators post every video they make. It's pretty subjective on which ones mods allow, but this has happened to me several times when making posts on reddit.

    I don't think its a good idea to speed up the footage when you are trying to give an idea of the game.

    They might think its really that fast.

    Hey if you hated the video thats one thing, I have to admit when I made it I surrender several things I wanted to do in favor of making the video appeal to people who never have played.

    Before posting the final version I ask 10 people in my friends list that have never played and made adjustments based on that., in fact going anything with speed was their idea I'd say the video wasn't totally terrible in the 13 hours it was up I had 7 up votes and 6 down votes out of almost 800 views.

    Additionally multiple people confirmed that after watching the video they would be playing the game (which was my real goal all along) I even successfully encourage 3 of the 10 people who had viewed it from my steam friends to buy the game.

    Its not the best video i've ever seen. But you put in the effort to make a video that helps support the game. Mmorpg just has rules against things like that so thats why it was taken down. As shitty as it could be, like you said, you did manage to get people to check out the game and some of them bought it, let alone you got 862 views, and we can i hopefully can say assume at least ONE person is fucking never seen darkfall and maybe wants to play

    Much love bladra. at least you put in effort, other people just talk shit bc they don't do anything at all.

    Look man. I don't want to hate on people for trying as much as the next guy, but the topic of Darkfall is volatile.

    We are all sitting here trying to help make this game succeed in ways we can, as best we can, this does not mean everyone needs to go throw up a video of EXTREMELY OLD, EXTREMELY DATED, EXTREMELY TERRIBLE QUALITY in game footage. We are getting bashed left and right about Darkfall graphics this, Darkfall graphics that, and are attempting to persuade these misguided souls to the light. When stuff like that is thrown into their face, they lean on it and use it as a crutch to support their claim.

    Just because effort was put into it, doesn't mean it's good, and doesn't mean it's above criticism. The celebration of mediocrity our society is delving into is the first step towards degeneracy, and regression. Creative outlets should be explored but should not be broadcasted until certain qualifications are met.

    It was a bad video to put up to advertise this game. The tutorial videos with the new GUI would have been better

    Man I really enjoyed it. Even if it's old footage and the quality isn't perfect it still showcases some of the major draws for Darkfall at it's core, especially the "load up 90s" by @skreww L00se halfway through. I was part of that push :D love it and hope to see more current stuff post-launch

    Honestly think your image of what we should show players is more pvp videos.

    Spoiler alert pvp videos are hard to follow alone.

    No i dont think it should be pvp videos. Pvp videos are for people who already play Darkfall.

    Spoiler alert though: your video was extremely hard to follow from the outside looking in. All i saw was flashy flashy pew pew, with loud music. Kinda like a... Pvp video.

    I could barely follow the video, and if that's the case I wonder what a person completely oblivious to the game would think.
