It's the illicit marketing of a product across a platform, in which the buyer and seller have no guarantee of true payment or services, along with the fact it is NOT an official retail site with a warranty that if somethin goes awry, then you receive anything back as a result. If this doesn't sounds like a Black Market of sorts, then Idk what does. So yes, in most senses this is illegalNo, you can't advertise that you're selling itunes gift cards in Times Square. I think that's called black trading, or something like that. One thing's for sure that it's illegal.I doubt its illigal or any black market thing
Not everything that's easy is worth it. As a matter of fact, rarely anything isGotcha, but Zstorm, sheen, and I, already do advertise for deepworld. In a way. YouTube gets the game across to many new audiences.Look I hate to burst your bubble but.. 3 people creating youtube videos for a small iOS MMO, that hardly recieved updates means literally nothing in the grand scheme of things. I don't care how many subscribers you have or how many views you have, it's clearly not enough.
As well, I hate to point this out but iOS basically has adblocker apps now (I use one called Weblock) which do a remarkable job at removing ads.
As well, with the game only being accessible on PC/ Mac as well as iOS, you can hardly advertise on androids, and most people who see ads on iOS despise them. We use our phones for a quick way to stay in contact, and any kind of ad is shunned because they are interrupting our feeds and taking up valuable space on already small screens, making ads even less effective - meaning you'd have to do video ads... which ends up getting your app uninstalled because nobody wants to sit through a 30 second ad to access content. (Unless they do it willingly).
If you were to do a project, you'd need to be doing one on something in-game. Deepworld is dying, no suprises there despite what people will claim. Advertisement for deepworld would need to be met with consistant updates, improvements and bug fixes, otherwise you waste your time advertising. It's be easier to market a completely new game tbh.
You're literally calling everyone during the Victorian era weird
Well you're just weird. Nothing new here.
Am I the only one who still has hope? In 2014, when I first joined Deepworld, I didn't think it was an awesome game because of the updates, I thought it was an awesome game because of the community!Nah your not the only one that still has hope. Almost everything in life has a "make or break" point, and that pivotal moment is decided by you, and the people surrounding you. I might not be the best example or best role model for a player, but you can be dang sure I do everything within my power to keep people online and playing.
Back in 2014 most people were very welcoming and I overall had fun. Now, that's changed a lot since old players have come and gone. And yeah, a bunch of people have no hope for the community, either. But really, it's not the devs or lack of updates why Deepworld is 'dying,' it's because of US. WE are the community. Did you ever stop to think that maybe, just maybe, we, as a community, can make a difference if we truly try? I think we can. And that's why I haven't lost hope. Because you can achieve anything if you work hard enough.
So that's why I'm going to try my hardest to keep doing collab projects in Deepworld. Whether it be a building competition, helping out on a world, or just helping out a new player. It may not be much, but if everyone did these little things, it'd make a whole lot more of a difference.
