00:05 - 00:07We need a new strategy we said
00:07 - 00:10What can we do though? Any ideas?
00:11 - 00:16Nobody is buying our expansions and all we have is this shitty pirate DLC. Our team lead said "Wait"
00:17 - 00:21Let's market that DLC as a brand new game
00:21 - 00:24new game

00:31 - 00:34And we'll pay streamers to hype it up for us
00:38 - 00:40new game
00:41 - 00:47we'll market the game as 40k concurrent players
00:47 - 00:50but if 40k people try to join
00:50 - 00:56the servers overload and won't let them in
00:58 - 00:59but they keep trying
00:59 - 01:01for 2 hours they try
01:04 - 01:06and after that 2 hours
01:06 - 01:08they can't even refund the game

01:16 - 01:20out of the reskin
01:21 - 01:27"40k concurrent players" but we cap zones at 150
