Based on "why did the neighbour's kid got a pony for Christmas when all I got was this lousy sweater", we want an epic HoN CG cinematic to fight back.
Old as hell, nobody cares. It doesn't show gameplay, it doesn't represent the actual game.
True the trailer has nothing to do with the game what so ever and that's why i think it sucks, they should play that cinematic trailer along with some gameplay as well.
..The only thing remotely epic about that trailer was the music.
The atmosphere would have been nice and all...until the terribly out of place hero designs completely pulled you out of the experience. For instance, throughout the entire cinematic you don't know what the **** is going on. Is this a mythological game? A fighter?
Compare it to HoN for example. Throughout all of HoN's trailer their general mood and ambience are portrayed extremely well, that being completely badass. All I got out of this trailer is that the game has big fluffy colorful characters with ***** attacks.
Quite possibly one of the worst trailers I have ever seen in my life.

I like to troll.
And make uh duh funny on mic
2 million+ views damn. I'm gonna try me some LoL now. See you HoN when you get some moar ports.
After such an vid it's probably a huge disappointment to play LoL
Good matchmaking, nice trailer, good servers, stable client. Everything about LoL is really good.
Except the game
I have returned
Reading the comments in that trailer just made me lose hope for humanity.
This one in particular:
Really the website told me a great story...would like to see this as a movie. Peter Jackson, I hope you are getting inspiration watching this.
i prefer ingame, you're not disappointed when you actually see the gameplay. LoL graphics is a prime example.
"When I see your face, I wanna be in the human race. You're beautiful it's true, I want to be beautiful like you."
If only CG = Actual gameplay, there would be a menagerie of good video games out. Sadly making a shiny CG video does not make a game good. After playing LoL a bit, other than the Horrible graphics, no denying, and no balance.. its not a HORRIBLE game...
Was that Dark Seer? The bald one who was juking left and right?
If anything That made me want to play DoTa more...
I can't believe your hate for LoL goes so far that you won't openly admit to the epicness of the CG trailer.
The point of this is not about LoL > HoN. It's about the CG trailer.
But hell, I can see in this thread that fanboyism has no limits :<
A pretty cool trailer, but the contrast between that and the actual game seems a bit too big indeed. They should have added bits of the game in the middle.
Also, I'd rather not see S2 spend money on a cinematic trailer. Use the pr money on tournaments instead. Those clips cost a heck of a lot to make.
HoN's trailer is like watching a bunch of replays mixed up in 1 video and probably took around 30 mins to make. If you want to see gameplay you can browse through the 100.000 HoN videos on youtube. The trailer should be unique. So HoN fails at this.
LoL's trailer is epic and actually makes you want to try out the game to see if it's worth playing = success. I'm sure they gained a lot of new players just with this trailer, such as myself. Obviously a great way to get more players.
You think that's one of the worst trailers you've ever seen in your life ? Oh please...
Also, HoN trailer = 550.000 views in 11 months. LoL trailer = 2.170.000 in 3 weeks. What does that tell you ?
Im sure if you all stopped being a bunch of HoN fanbois for 2 mins you could see it was a very cool trailer. that being said, obviously this trailer is nothing like the game, but that doesnt mean the trailer isnt cool.
