Will be have an invasion of noobs?
« on: March 14, 2014, 06:10:56 PM »
As we all know, Nerdcubed is a famous (and great in my opinion) youtuber. He is a big fan of Robot Wars, but he is yet to play RA2... Until now.
On his Reddit he said in a comment we will see a RA2 video soon! The question is- Will we have an invasion of new guys here due to his following? It will really light up this forum to its former glory! Your thoughts?


What is love, baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more, no more, what is LOVE!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!!??!?!

It depends who can be bothered to actually look up the forum.

Just Googling 'Robot Arena 2' doesn't really show Gametechmods except for a link to download the game, so it'll probably depend on whether Dan directly links to the forum as a way to download the game, which I highly doubt.

I guess 1 or 2 may come round to check it out but I doubt it'll be anything substantial - I mean, did the RW community get a massive boost from when he played RW:ED or any of those?

Robot Arena 2 is a pretty obscure game though, I think, compared to RW:ED. Any robot combat fan who watched NerdCubed's episode on it probably already owned it and played it at some point, but something like Robot Arena 2 being given some limelight as being a superior robot combat game might turn some heads and garner some interest from those disappointed in the Robot Wars tie-ins.

Some fresh new faces would be nice. But I doubt we'd get too much of a boost. They'd get the game for sure, but join the forum? Maybe 6 or 7 of them, and even then only 1 or 2 would stay. Or none at all.

I guess it's possible but yet highly unlikey.

Cubed already did a video a while back. Would be nice though.
Put this onto your signature if you were part of this crappy fad in '03.

I haven't seen this place less RA2 orientated, so I don't expect them to stay for long.

Haha, one of those comments is mine :P
Anyway, he might well link to this forum as a download link for the game, assuming he didn't buy a copy off ebay or whatever. This is certainly the best place to get the game. I doubt it will bring that many people here, though.

I only messaged Dan 2 YEARS AGO ABOUT THIS. In any case, glad he finally checked it out XD

In the description there's a subreddit for the comments. It's due to all the virus link spamming.

Youtube nutsing up the comments section forced dan to resort to subreddits for comments.
