Agreed. If we share our game experience and enthusiasm through videos and forum posts, then other potential players will likely open themselves up to a great experience. People will usually resist newer models of a past passion because it’s not exact. If we remain positive and informative, then maybe others will be less negative. I am certain that this is the game our community has desired since the sunset of our city.

You know, there are always those who want to see, that the glass is half empty - some people are just not happy if they can´t be unhappy and since they feel that their lives are miserable they can´t stand it, when other peoples lives look nice and good. So they talk others down, to have them on their level because climbing up is to much work but they simply don´t want to be alone down there. And of course because their own misfortune looks even more depressing, if they see others fortune and cannot find a flaw in it ease their state of mind.

And just by the way - you can never know, which of them are trolls having fun, when other people are getting excited or trying to force good arguments out of their minds and seeming to be stressed by it.

And of course it is not something, which one knows, but in todays business behaviour it wouldn´t be surprising to have people in your marketing department who check for potential business oponents and make their lives miserable or talking their work down while they are not a competition yet.

With those thoughts in mind we should always be careful, what we take serious and what not. And if nothing else, remember we know better :) and those we want, will come eventually anyway, because they are also looking for a virtual home like us, with a family-like community and because they are searching for that they will in given time check and when they see the progress which is obvious - they will make up their mind and give it a try, I am sure of that!

And those who are just negative and destructive - like you said you don´t want to play with those - I don´t want to play with those - and all of those former CoH Players and new Travellers in our realms with a kindred spirit will see it that way too - I am sure of that :)
I believe (although not all agree with me as I know, but well not everybodies opinion needs to be the same ;) ) in quality over quantity. The quantity has to be high enough to support the Company and pay the bills - everything else is a nice bonus and as a player I am rather part of an excellent and positive community than of a big community (I don´t believe both is possible)

Youtube comments - one of the most toxic troll havens on the internet. I wouldn't worry about it.

The part about past passion being not exact is what worries me about SEGS.

why that? you fear about it not having the feeling or that people won´t accept it or that the expectations will be to high or what do you mean?

One post about positive gamer complained that he had not posted any positive videos about the other 2 games and that he was bias.
I pointed out he may not feel positive about the other 2 games and therefore couldn't make a video about them. Some people eh.

So i guess that there is a battle ground of fake news with supporters trying to negatively influence the potential player base, What i hoped would happen is that SOH would differentiate itself from the rest of the field because it is Subscription and not f2p. Therefore different in its development and philosophy to the others. This point doesn't seem to raised enough in the comments and more of it should be made in the videos. Not that we have any control over video content.

like I said - it is sadly part of the business and you don´t know who does what and why
only thing sure is, you cannot trust comments to be altruistic

I'm talking about this game and the other successors. People not even trying because they are not exactly like CoH via SEGS.
