I have just noticed something, even after all the scandal, bad mouthing and overall bad press the game has had in the last 2 to 3 weeks I'm starting to see a lot of new people here in ZAM.

Every other thread has a couple people with less than 20 posts on their profile.

I started noticing this even before the announcments made yesterday so I can only gess that this will probably increase the interest of the public in the game.

Has anyone else noticed this or just now that I mentioned it you also notice it?

whooof thank god. :P

There's no such thing as bad publicity - people can bash a game all they want but they wont really change anyone's mind or make up someone's mind about it, typically someone will try the game out for themselves before making that decision. Say a game has 100 fans and 50 naysayers, the 50 naysayers started going from forum to forum knocking on this game and they grabbed the attention of 50 limbo'ers, of these 50 25 decided to try the game and of these 25 only 12 decided they like it - now we have 112 fans, 12 more than before...worse explanation ever but it makes my point lol.

There were a LOT more new people around ZAM when the closed beta key giveaway was accepting entries.

More and more people will most certainly join the forums as we get closer to launch.
Now that SE is being more forthcoming about the game's content a lot of people have also had time to cool down and will be more open minded about giving the game a chance.
A lot of the stigma that is still lingering around the forums could probably have been avoided if they hadn't ignored everyone and Tanaka had chosen better words when making his statements.

I still don't like the idea of certain aspects of the game but I'll wait it out till PS3 release and see how it goes.

There were hundreds of new people who mearlly signed in to apply for the giveaway and might have looked here once a day to get any news from it but I would assume that 90% if not more f those have not come back since.

What I'm talking about is that in the last few days, even without nothing being on offer, it appeared to me at least that there was a small but noticable influx of posters just for being interested in the game, nothing to gain from posting here.
