But I guess that's hard to do when your spending all your time and money running a multi million dollar ad campaign all over TV and internet.
Obviously you have never played another MMO before. Big named or other wise if you serioulsy think that. Wow has had bugs and exploits that have lasted Years. Try again.

You do not understand how business and these companies work. You don't just take money from one dept budget to apply to another just like that. You also don't realize that debugging and coding take enormous amounts of time and resources. They don't have the budget of a behemoth like Activision-Blizzard. The problem is most of the "haters" are kids, who have never learned patience and want things the way they want them and want it immediately. The game has been live for 2 months. If you dont liek it then fine, leave and find a game you do. Staying on the message boards b&m about things wont get it done it just makes you appear to be a whiny troll.

not only that, I don't know which spots are shown in other parts of the world, buuut over here the spot shown is basically bits from the cinematic from the start of the game (you know, the ones you see when you start the game for the first time)

on top of that at the end of the spot there's a little page telling you to go see episode 1 in 3D (how about no?)

I highly doubt .that. spot costs a whole lot of money ...

oh yeah, the spots run in the middle of the night on comedy central, hardly an expensive slot

It's been quite a while ago for me, but I'm pretty sure they don't teach coding and game design in marketing classes.

Correct. But they use the same money to pay the people who do so. So, re-allocate some money from marketing and put it into development.

Just taking the opportunity to chime in here (no, neither flaming the game nor high-praising it).
What I found funny about this commercial, was the statement that we can make our own SW Saga in SW:ToR. Hmm...every story detail is given to me and regardless of my choices, the story will have its own end. That's not really making my own saga, it's following a path which I can't influence. I can't choose not to fight the big endboss (not saying who it is due to possible spoilers) as a jedi knight in case I went full dark side. I have to fight and defeat him, if I want to "end" my current story line.

Not that I mind that too much, but the wording seems wrong to me.
But oh well...such is promotional work, I guess.

All in all I like the game however, even though it has massive flaws.

I can't watch videos full screen on this site without pain in my eyes because of seeing 2 pixels.
Mazes and Labyrinths??, this is the opposite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LibXsQBzY_c. A narrow linear Themepark doesn't fit Star Wars or any mmo

Nice to see you guys got time to put together pointless video's that are completely done in bad taste instead of actually communicating with your customers and focusing on fixing the game. But I guess doing that would actually make sense.

Are you new to marketing?

Do you think that department has the same staff and budget as the development/design department?
