yr forgetting one detail btw
EA did pay a whole bunch of streamers to play BFV at launch too, same with COD, same with Heights, same with a whole bunch of games; I distinctively remember that, so there’s no difference there whatsoever…
COD and BFV actually did have the marketing machine going, but they also paid the streamers for sponsored segments all the same, the difference is that Apex did it without the marketing, not that there were sponsored segments
this again proves that sponsored segments are not responsible for the success of the games cuz all big games do that now, even a lot of smaller games…
the reason this game is so big is cuz it’s so good that streamers keep playing it day-in day-out without being paid to do so
ninja sponsored BFV stream:
basically, Apex did the same as all these other games, so ???
i dont even understand why u would argue this point:
this game is big cuz streamers kept playing it long past the sponsored segment and cuz it’s just so good, just like Fortnite, the sponsored segment in itself can not make a game a huge success in itself ever
Ninja played Heights too btw, and was sponsored for a bunch of other games too, where are they now?
Ninja played the culling, island of nyne, darwin project, fractured lands, realm royale, and a bunch of others too, where are they now???
