View Full Version : I have faith in Relics Marketing of IC!
26th Nov 02, 5:56 PM
After IC was delayed, I was extremely pissed at Relic. But now things are looking up for IC's exposure. After not seeing a prominent IC add for about 6 months, I am now seeing a flood of original marketing strategies for the game. Not only did Microsoft's very popular Age of Mythology come with an IC add inside; but now the biggest gaming site on the net (Gamespy) has IC Stess Test adds everywhere on it's site. I am sure that there will be a flood of new people, if there already isn't one. I think IC will be very popular and many people will by it on the date of it's release or soon after; besides ourselves. Once the word gets around about how great this game actually is, I am sure it will be a big hit!!!!
Horray for IC!:clap: :joy: :mdance: :pimp: :ninja: :bow2:

There was no reason to be "pissed" at "Relic" when it was delayed before. It's not like they did it at the last minute, or gave no reason, or did it specificly to spite fans. If they didn't delay it you'd have a crappy, buggy game with a horrendous marketing plan. It's all for the better.

I know that Relic didn't do it to spite their fans, because they would never do something like that. But, I was partially discouraged that my favorite game wasn't going to be in my hands for another six months. Of course, as I know now, their time was very well spent. I have been playing the stress test for about 4 hours straight. Three of which were spent in the army builder alone. :D

Meh, who needs those silly "games". Army builder is MUCH more fun!
Plus, my curent combos seem rather sad...

W00t W00t W00t!
That's my official response after playing online for a few hours tonight.
But, sigh, I've seen a few people get frustrated, lose one match and decide they didn't like the game. People need more patience, is all.
This game is so damn fun! :@)

Im glad they delayed the game. I would much rather have a fully working, relatively non-buggy version to play with than have to download patches every few months to fix the bugs they left behind when they rushed it out for the holidays.

Seconded. Patience is a virtue. I am probably the only person on earth still looking forward to Duke Nukem Forever and not bitching about it being delayed.
Good things require time.

Not to mention the better sales it'll get, since it's released away from WC3 and AoM.
