    He did make it an entertaining review of the game.

    Yes. As it is stated it is a sponsored game review. They paid guy with 30k subs to talk good things about the game.

    Some say that good product sells itself. I am not against paid reviews but it is clear for everyone who watch this that this is not an honest game review simply because guy got paid to advertise EU.

    Maybe that is a way to lure more new players, but will it solve the retention problem?

    Clearly not!

    Edit:

    343 views in 4 days seems a little small amount for 30k subs channel.

    It makes sense that MA would try to recruit twitch streamers and youtubers with over 30k subscribers, I applaud their efforts.

    Probably fake subs. I don't know... I think a better use of resources would be setting up a full affiliate system. Why not let the players of the game market it? Just a thought.

    They should be doing an affiliate system and tight locks on people exploiting it.

    I agree with this method to be honest. Best way to win new customers in any business is via legitimate recommendation - and with a learning curve as steep as EU's, a major benefit would be the possibility established EU players 'training up' people they introduce.

    The thing that keeps people in EU is the community. When you are new, you are not yet part of that established community and so it can be quite alienating. New players need to be guided in to the community by established players so that they feel as though they 'belong'. Just my .

    Yeah, those subs have to be fake.... EarnPED with StevieB has only 287 subscribers and his videos have almost as many views as this guy :/

    Now he'll get some more views from this forum

    But I like the fact that MA is investing in marketing, it's a good sign I think. And they're sponsoring other youtubers too, like Cereal Overdrive.
