Re: Match the donations! - Battlefield 1942 advertising

I am not sure where your anger comes from Mamba, maybe it is genetics considering you are black.

Remember, it's not the culture.. it's the DNA.

Anyway, to clarify.. I never stated you had to donate $499 and you definitely don't need to even donate one cent. I have in the past put over $100 out of my own pocket advertising free copies of the game on (((Twitter and Facebook))). I guess I hit a nerve when I assumed you had to pay your brother for your daily BJ.

I have been playing since 2002, as have many others -- and I figured there would be a few interested in throwing money into a pool and then using the money to bring in new players, targeting key locations where an old game will be seen as cool (i.e., nations that tend to have dated technology). It's a shame people such as Black Anger must come on here stating he does not want to put a penny into a game he still plays and plans to play in the foreseeable future.

I await your down vote, Black.

First of all, I'm not black, thank you. Second of all, while the intention of your post is to revive the game I'm guessing  (that's a good intention by the way), you're doing it all wrong. Advertising and promoting BF1942 can be done for free, there is no need to have money involved, it just needs to be done right and at the right moment. Plus you should know that I have invested in this game more  than you have and have done my share of work, whether by renting public servers or even by making maps and mods, which aren't  monetary investments  but still take a lot of time to make. Asking for people to donate  will just scare them off. What  guarantee  do we have for example that you will not simply  take all the money for yourself?

Remember  the FHSW promotional video that was based on the BF1 trailer? It now has 300 000 hits or so I think? That  is how we promote this game. The editing of the video  was perfect  and it was released at the right moment. That's all we need. If  some sort of promotional video for vanilla  BF was made for the games 15th in September 2017, we could perhaps draw some players in the game. On top of that, EA/Dice might have their own promotional trailer or release of the game.

Re: Match the donations! - Battlefield 1942 advertising

Both you niggas living in an alternative reality. As much as I like this game that doesn't change the fact that it's player base is not going to increase drastically the way we all want it. I'm sorry, but almost all the players who played this game daily are gone most of them. "{Phantom}" was a clan in 1.6, name 2  players of theirs that still play lol. Exactly, none of the old players will come back.

Next, you're probably like "but what about new players you retard" Please, 2012 EA releases 42 for free on origin.. There was a small spike in players, BUT THEN within the year 80% of those players never touched the game again. Why? Well let's start off with the fact that the games ping and bullet registration is fu cking awful, People are obsessed with graphics now, new comers don't want to learn how to compensate regs and they'd rather play on CS if they want a game to learn. I have said this before and I'll say it again. You can't revive a dead body that's been dead since 2009. It will never happen no matter how much you advertise, I had a group of friends who tried playing bf42 a year ago in May, and to my expectations they said what I expected. After all the time they were playing newer games, playing bf42 for them was on a nostalgic trip but not enjoyable.

Re: Match the donations! - Battlefield 1942 advertising

The only "revival" of BF42 that would ever have any chance at being successful would be if they made a brand new BF42 with updated graphics like those that you can see in BF1. Most of the people who are going to want to try a new BF42 are wanting the updated graphics. They're not really interested in old games.


Crazy is as crazy does, and this crazy is getting shit done.
