    I believe it was due to Dread_Og talking about him on stream a couple of times in the past few days.

    Was kinda hoping Jet Boom or Iceman Hottie would show up and lag switch him to death.

    Would've shown him the true DF experience.

    im not against people finding out about RoA. im against it being marketed right now (which is whats happening here basically) because I think the game is in a pretty shitty state still. BPG has done some great work, but the core game is still pretty un-intuitive and imo broken on a lot of levels.

    The thing is, Im pretty sure someone who tries a game, doesnt like it, and drops it is WAY less likely to play later when those issues get fixed compared to someone who comes in after the fixes.

    and the reality is that the "experience" the streamer dude received is NOTHING like what his viewers will receive if they try the game. IMO broken expectations also lower the chances of someone who leaves a game coming back after fixes too.

    I would guess I am based on what ive experienced but ya never know i suppose?

    But i bet you're just a wealth of wisdom mate ;)

    I can tell because of how well you reasoned out your (definitely-not-just-an-unqualified-personal-attack) opinion there

    I can't disagree with anything you say, but I just believe above all else population is king and everything else comes after, so a good pop gives them a better chance of surviving long enough to be at the point you think they should be, without population they may never get there and even with it who knows?

    They chose to release when they did with what they had, that wasn't a random event, one way or another they felt they needed to get the game out there and at this point all there is to do is roll with it.

    I think, up to a certain critical mass, you are correct that population is king. The most basic thing this mmo needs is enough players to sustain itself.

    TBH i ws pretty happy with the 5k accounts on release, and the activity im seeing. I guess this is a matter of opinion, but IMO we're past the critical amount necessary for the game to function as an MMO. if we were down to the levels of pop seen at the end of UW, id absolutely be on board with the "any publicity is good publicity" idea.

    but i think we're at a reasonably enough pop for now. IMO some more of the core issues need to be fixed before we start marketing (including thru streamers). Specifically the poor intuitiveness of the game and the initial information wall new players need to get past.

    i disagree, they need money for paid professional staff members (at least GMs plus more), they still have a little too much amateur hour going on and they need to clean it up.

    To me you seem like someone who will always no matter what find something to complain about and then because you're not dumb use your intelligence to make it seem like they were well founded complaints and not a compulsive need to share negativity. Stop deflecting. You 're being negative.

    That being said, any publicity is good for us right now. It seemed like he had a good time, and hopefully he will show us some love in the future.

    I think it was pretty cool that the guy tried the game. Supposedly he wants to play more tomorrow. It is some great exposure.

    Was actually really fun to watch. Props to all guys that was helping out. We should now support his streams by hitting that subscribe button for doing such a huge promotion to RoA.

    Watched the first 10min. Guy skipped the tutorial cause he thought it wouldnt move on. Perhaps light up the keys on the tutorial so people know they have to press w a s d to get to the next part

    We had contacted his people a few months ago, and did our best to get the game on his radar as we know he played games like AC in the past.

    He likely would have never played if it weren't for Dread talking to him about it and sparking his interest. So major thanks to the flying elbow master.

    We're in contact with other similar, very big streamers, and we're hopeful that Reckful playing will get them to jump on board as well.
