    Did Cordovan said anything about the trailer in todays stream?

    Anything?

    This. SOOO MUCH THIS. I am usually the one to give SSG a pass due to low budget and small staff, but it would have been better not to have a trailer at all rather than to put this out. I was embarrassed watching it, and I'm a huge Lotro Fangirl.

    I just watched it, it was everything the comments on Massively said, I am shocked by how horrible it was.

    Yes. He addressed it. It's delicate. What would you say? Considering you took part in approving it, probably know the guy who created it, and might not be looking at it from the same perspective as the public (though you're obviously trying!).

    Essentially, a "sorry you didn't like it" and due to the response, a statement that it would be "de-emphasized." Also, the 480p nature was explained. That was an uploading error and a 1080p version is coming (though he acknowledged that a higher resolution doesn't address much of the criticism).

    It should be pointed out that a lot of people stuck up for the trailer. But. . . well, at some point I get the sense we're feeling bad for the people who made it. Not really feeling good about the trailer itself. It's just sorta. . . objectively underwhelming (sorry).

    I see no reason to stick up for it at all - just compare it to the ones they did for previous expansions, they're all on YouTube. I wouldn't say they were wonderful either (not as these things go in general) but they were still infinitely better than this.

    LOL at 'de-emphasized', as in (metaphorically speaking) walling it up in the cellar and never speaking of it again

    "Probably just a day or two."

    "OK, well, should we put out the trailer today or wait for release?"

    "The what?"

    "The trailer."

    "The what?"

    "The trailer. The one we said we were going to make."

    "..."

    "I mean, we did make one, right?"

    "Oh yeah, totally. Um. Totally. Say, are there any interns free this afternoon?"
    Exactly.

    It really surprises me that they haven't pulled the trailer down yet given all the responses in the gaming community from places like Massively, etc. This trailer is really damaging SSG's reputation.

    At this point, they don't need to try to save face - just pull it until a decent replacement is found. Most sites would applaud them for a wise decision.

    At 25 secs, we see that flash and outward burn from the tower of Barad Dur. That's the only part of the trailer that is worth anything as that's the only indication we get that anything happened inside Mordor when the ring went poof. Shame it isn't in the game anywhere.

    Ohh, and I did like the music. I have to agree with the general consensus though - this needs to go. they clearly have some decent footage they could use, so just get it out of the vault, and use it.

    Been saying that for a year now, and this "expansion" confirms it in spades.

    Now, when I post on this forum, what normally happens at this point is that Cordovan deletes my post and either gives me and infraction or bans me. Not this time, Cordovan. This is valid criticism, and you know it. You can't hide behind the trolls who swarm in and tell me to either love it or leave it this time. This time, you don't have a leg to stand on. That trailer is not professional quality, it's damaging to the game, the studio and, frankly, the IP, and it's going to actively deter newcomers from even trying the game. You simply cannot defend it. Any way you slice it, that trailer is going to result in a loss of revenue. And it's YOUR fault.

    Now, are you going to continue to ignore the feedback that isn't gushing praise for you on this forum? Or are you going to respond?

    They probably meant "Prove you are legend!". But cannot spell anymore.

    I agree 100%.

    Exactly. I've said it before and I'll say it again: SSG, if you can't do it well, then please just don't do it at all. No trailer would have been kinda bad but a trailer like this is 10000000 times worse. I'm not asking you to take it down though as that would require acknowledging a mistake, which I'm sure you will never do.



    I laughed so hard at this:
    SSG do everything to turn people away. It’s incredible.

    BUT WE WILL PLAY NEVERTHELESS! EAT IT SSG!
    (from the comments on massively)



    Sincerely,
    a LOTRO fangirl and an ultimate fan (against my better judgment)

    The only chance is to replace it with something better. The net doesn't forget.

    Not that I've seen, not at Mordor anyway. Maybe I haven't got to it yet.

    I actually thought the trailer was a joke and had to search for lotro youtube channel to make sure some troll didnt create it.

    Shockingly bad trailer nobody will want to come back to lotro after seeing it. my editing skills are pretty bad but i could of done a better job in a couple of hours, so sad.

    It's in one of the movies you unlock during the Epic.

    Ugh, I must be having problems with the movies again then, just like I did on the first battle at the black gate on the Wastes update. I had to fix that by copying the movie files over from another machine. You don't by any chance know the name of the movie file do you please?

    One would think that for Mordor, the most dramatic scene would be included in the trailer.
    And that would be the part where Gollum falls into the fire of Mount Doom. And it should be shown in slow motion in the trailer.
