We Need More of You

We, the Illarion staff, like you guys so much that we wish we could clone you. Unfortunately, we can't, so we have to come up with a more practical means to make more of you.

For starters, you can help us by voting here, once a day:

I hope to get us on the top of the MMORPG and MPOG list there. Good luck.

Another thing you can do is refer your friends. I'm going to be brainstorming for a way to reward people who refer lots of friends, so you might want to start now to reap the rewards that might be coming.

Thank you.

I would vote but Illarion isn't a Massive game so our ad on there is extremely misleading. :(


Voted.

MMORPG & MPOG top list
Private servers, free servers, Game Servers, Powerful Servers
You really want to be there? Were pirate servers of popular P2P games have thier own top lists?

Any chance to change the text?
Illarion: Graphical MUD
A free online roleplaying game set in a fantasy world with swords and sorcery. dynamic quests, roleplaying, and plenty of features, in open beta.
:arrow:

Illarion - A free online roleplaying game
Illarion is a free graphical MMORPG that focuses on true roleplaying. It features swords and sorcery, elves and dwarves, crafting and exploring, dynamic quests and plenty other features. Illarion is free to play with a standalone client.

Illarion - Can you resist the magic of this world?

Why? Illarion is not open beta. It is open alpha ;-) and it will stay like this forever. Open beta sounds like "crap, an unfinished game where I can only buzz around as a bee and next month, they'll close it down". Also, I'd use the term MMORPG (even though Illarion is not), due to its current "buzz-ness" as search term. I added some other words people search for and accented the RP part.

Top lists are usually no effective way to attract new players, but it is a way and every penny counts. More effective, yet much more work: Write reviews on popular MMORPG sites like http://www.onrpg.com/MMO/Illarion

That's awkward.
2/10 points.:( Every other game has 4/10 at least.
That's misplaced advertising. Inverted.
"Hey guys! Please don't play that crappy game 'cause it's crap and da only one with 2/10. Hahahhahah, N00bs everywhere!11!!1"

You know what I mean? :wink:

Woah! 8.6 points
Here too. Aahh, I can't help, but it seems like I know the players...

The problem is that Illarion falls into the "free to play"-category. But this category contains games, which are free to play but have an item shop, as well. These are commercial products and it is quite hard to "compete" with that. There is only a hand full or so of totally free MMO(RP)Gs and I think Illarion would do quite well if compared to games in that category.

Doesn't Illa have a publicity banner like the other games on that site?

Any particular reason Dyluck's LOI video is on there with a caption describing how it's a video of illarion gameplay?

The games that are first on that side are mainly strategy games and browser games. People looking for games there will most likely ignore or dislike illa.
I voted, though ;)

Da kommt wieder die Idee auf, das jeder PO selbst überlegen sollte wie er effektiv Werbung machen könnte. Schreibt was in den Foren in denen ihr rumeiert.. sprecht mit Leuten die selber zocken aber mal was neues suchen... Oder lasst euch endlich nen Banner für Illa machen den man frei runterladen kann. wenn der in ne Signatur passt isses ja schon wat wert...

The best ads I saw for Illa so far are that two background images with that dragon.
Are they anywhere else but on the homepage?

A shot at Cyrin maybe?
