Nadeo doesn't want money?

General discussion about all the Trackmania series.

Moderator: TM-Patrol

Do you think that Trackmania Nations Forever should get Dynamic Advertisements?

Offcourse, they should have done this from the start.

this one is really :roflol:

I think you should start your own big company in order to have the marketing budget to buy space in TM so I can buy me a real reproduction of the stadium car to go in the streets. :pil

I would have been interested in advertising online to pay you your car Florent ;)... Only thing is what I sell doesnt match the targeted audience so no go.... But if youy evere get there, I know a few companies that would be interested in advertising in an online game (good contacts at Orange for example ;)......

I heard there's Speed Racer ads for US players now, so they do seem to be using it in Forever too.

Nadeo is after the 'survival' stage, and we can say that even more with Forever success. Word of mouth, or words over Internet are the most useful push for TM, so the best you can do for Nadeo, you probably are doing it already. And if there is a donation or an effort to do, I think that many players can look after community website were this make even more sense, since they donate their time to players!

Nadeo should definatly cash in, no one can complain with adverts on a free game! Even on TMU i wouldnt mind adverts, REAL racing has adverts after all, looks realistic :pil

I assume you mean non-obtrusive ads, of course? Like on the Start thing, or the stadium sides, or such?

Well, Nadeo certainly is becoming bigger and bigger. They grew from a small, quite unknown game developer to quite a big name (though still only few people at my school know Trackmania). Especially the step to Steam was a good decision, as it's the fusion of two big (okay, one big and one colosal), active communities. I got a bunch of friends with Steam who downloaded TMNF since it's avaible there and free. Putting Nations for free, and linking Nations and United with Forever, also was a good idea.

I tell you, for sure Nadeo is gonna be as big as Blizzard or EA some day.

I think Nadeo has been the same group of people ever since the first TM, except maybe Alinoa who wasn't around before. So in that way, they're not getting bigger ^^
