It's pretty cool, but I'd rather see the default cycle.

I have a pretty new business doing Internet Marketing that pays for my servers, and is growing. Let's just say that you have to use the default cycle. Otherwise users that download the game, will have a real WTF moment and give up! Let me encourage you to keep working on the video. When my income increases again, I plan to start using the techniques I am making money with to advertise Armagetron. A close friend of mine is building a new site to do marketing via free content on YouTube. I do article marketing and soon via a blog.

Yes, the default tron bike should be used. I'll probably go ahead and remake it with that bike and a few other changes. This of course was made purely for "fun" and I labeled it "commercial" since it was based off one. Side note: That's awesome comp, I'm also into marketing (I recently got my Bachelors of Business Administration in Marketing, and I'm currently getting my masters.) I can't wait to see what approach you'll take. I'm still working on my main commercial for Armagetron (default bike for sure :D ) based off the previous sketch topic. (Royalty-Free)

Well, that's America nowadays. We don't make stuff anymore (except fast food junk), just brand and market it. Not a small part of the reason for the current economic "downturn."

Yep that's it. Was going to add arrows.. then I thought it would distract from the bikes.

It's great man. Rock on with your bad self. Get the word out. It's getting awfully sweaty and smelly cooped up with the same 80-100 people year after year. :pacman: :ghost:

Cynics and Sycophants jump on that 80-100 statement, ready set go!

That is a really cool advertisement :D

I have a suggestion though. I was reading through the comments of other armagetron videos, and I read all the comments on them, and ones that weren't from the community were all saying "that looks really boring" or some such.. maybe show some action packed tron moments lol. Kids and adults alike like a bit of action :D

Great ad Pr3 like it alot.
A suggestion maybe to use a compilation of video recordings of an awesome laddle round and mix it with some sumo clips, etc etc. to show the range of action at Arma! WE ROCK this SHIT!
Its people like yall that make Arma a great place to hang out and play!
